Another beauty bit the dust when the final seven castaways booted Jefra Bland out of the game on the latest episode of Survivor: Cagayan. Instead of flipping alliances to join Spencer, Tasha and Jeremiah just a few days earlier, Jefra opted to stay true with her primary allies, leaving the question of: What if? What if she had swapped sides? Would it have been a better move? Would it have kept her longer in the game? These are questions she discussed in depth during our interview. But that’s not all… Jefra said she respects the game of Survivor too much to be a bitter jury member. Awesome! I totally respect somebody who votes based on strategies instead of hurt feelings. Jefra also weighed in on her personal Survivor story of beating cervical cancer and even told me where her name originated. There’s lots to soak up with this chat, so dive on in!
I have always loved the Survivor auction. I find it completely entertaining to watch the starving contestants impatiently spend hundreds of dollars on various foods instead of waiting for the expected advantage item. It’s also one of the most frustrating elements to see supposedly smart players waste their cash when they could ultimately bid on something that could help them last longer in the game. This season’s unpredictability continued as several castaways didn’t spend a dime and got into an interesting situation when the special advantage popped up. Damn! I love this season!
If you do a Google search for Jeremiah Wood, you get a mixed bag of results. First, there’s the obvious content about him competing on Survivor: Cagayan. Then, there’s a slew of pictures of him modeling clothes — or lack thereof — for various companies like Wrangler and Abercrombie. The 34-year-old castaway kept his successful modeling career a secret throughout his time on Survivor — up until the last moments before he was voted out of the game. He felt it was the appropriate time to reveal to his allies, Spencer and Tasha, that he was a fashion model. Shortly after he came clean, his entire game was done when Jeremiah found himself voted out of the game. I had the chance to chat with Jeremiah today where he expressed his feelings toward Tony, explained why he was so close to Spencer and ultimately revealed this season will end with a final two. Plus, he responds to the comment Brice dished out that labeled him as a cockroach. Plus, there’s plenty of pics for you ladies to enjoy inside this article!
It was back to the #SpyShack for Tony on Survivor: Cagayan as his allies were totally pissed he had flipped on them to vote out LJ. Going way back to the first episode, Tony piled up branches and leaves right next to the tribe’s water well to create Spy Shack 2.0. This makeshift shanty was built with one goal in mind: To secretly listen to the strategies of anybody trotting by. And it didn’t take long for his prey to fall into the shack trap.
It was another beautiful blindside. Tony Vlachos orchestrated a chaotic scheme to vote LJ McKanas, a horse trainer from Massachusetts, out of Survivor: Cagayan. His plan worked and LJ, the “horse whisperer,” found himself seated on the jury. Although LJ says he is bitter about Tony’s decision, he doesn’t hold it against him. Instead, LJ repeated multiple times in our interview that Tony is the only person truly playing the game. In our chat, LJ also revealed why he’s frustrated with Trish Hegarty, explains why he’s been in touch with casting about the possibility of playing the game again and reveals what “LJ” actually stands for.
Tony Vlachos is a name we will long be associating with Survivor. His big moves and big personality on Survivor: Cagayan will go down as one of the most memorable in the show’s history. Tonight’s episode centralized on Tony’s paranoia. No joke. The ENTIRE episode focused on what Tony’s next move would be. He was so paranoid that he found himself focused on targeting a member of his solid six-way alliance. Why? He didn’t like the fact he got votes at the previous Tribal Council and felt like it was time to make the move to boot LJ out of the game. Did his plan pan out?

Lazy. Queen. A dying dog. Definitely not the kindest of words, but these were all used to describe Morgan McLeod on Survivor: Cagayan by her fellow castaways. The self-described cutie took a lot of heat — especially in the latest episode — but was it all warranted? I spoke with Morgan about her apparent laziness and discussed her feelings toward Kass. Interestingly, she is also the second person I’ve interviewed this season who says Trish is playing the best game (?!?!). But my favorite nugget of info came when she talked about being selected for the show. Turns out she was friends with two former One World contestants who got her in touch with casting. As always, it’s all about who you know.
After last week’s crazy Tribal Council, could Survivor: Cagayan get any better? In one word: YES! A pair of awesome challenges, former allies clashed and there was the wildest hunt for a hidden Immunit Idol ever seen. With just six weeks left until the big finale (Wednesday, May 21), this epic season is edging closer to declaring the winner — and I’m on the edge of my seat!!!
Fans are gushing praise for this week’s episode of Survivor: Cagayan after a wild Tribal Council brought two hidden Immunity Idols into play before a big blindside. Sarah Lacina, the castaway on the bad end of the blindside, discussed that shocking moment with us in an interview Thursday. While saying she doesn’t hate Kass McQuillen for switching sides and voting against her, she did declare that the two of them will never have a friendship outside of the game. She also weighed in on Tony and revealed which castaway she believes is playing the best game (it just might surprise you).
The commercials for this week’s episode were promising a shocking Tribal Council on Survivor: Cagayan. So many times before, the “shocking” promises don’t deliver. But tonight, it was literally another jaw-dropping hour of television. This season of Survivor is proving to be one of the best with great characters, big strategy and incredible blindsides! If you missed this episode, you really did miss out on several exciting moments.
