Survivor Recap: Lies, lies and more lies!

It’s Day 26 on Survivor and Domenick starts by telling Laurel about a dream he had. Martin Sheen was her father.  Oh wow. LOL Desiree talks about how she’s ready to take out Naviti and make a big move. She wants to use Michael to get out Kelly and then get out Wendell and Dom. She says she can pull in Ang as well. Laurel hears talk about throwing over Naviti and wonders if she should switch sides and protect herself.

Come on in guys! It’s reward time!

Divided into two teams of five, they will each rescue their teams who are in cages, unlock a puzzle piece and put together a giant puzzle. The reward is a picnic and they are flown by helicopter to it. Brownies never sounded so good. It’s a schoolyard pick and one person isn’t going to compete. They draw for captains and for orange it’s Michael, Sebastian, Chelsea, Kellyn and Jenna. On purple, it’s Wendall and Domenick rescuing Laurel, Desiree and Angela. Donathan was not picked. Sebastian and Michael take an early lead. Domenick trails away from the boat and has to paddle back. Purple continues to struggle with their boat, while Orange pulls away with the lead. The final team that wins reward? ORANGE!

Who do they send to Ghost Island? They decide on rocks. Who gets the white rock? Angela.

Michael talks about feeling like he’s a target and that he wants to stir the pot by finding some cracks in the Naviti tribe. Michael was a pivotal player in the Orange win. Michael uses the win to try and work together with the rest of the Naviti tribe, but it doesn’t quite seem like they want to bite.

Showing Angela at Ghost Island, Game On, Follow the Fire! She gets a chance to risk her vote to get additional power. Since Naviti has the numbers, Angela has to go for the advantage, but she doesn’t win and loses her vote at the next tribal council.

Donathan and Laurel talk about the move earlier, but Laurel feels safer with Domenick and Wendell than she does Desiree. Laurel tells Domenick that Des is trying to rally Malolo four against the two of them. Domenick tells Kellyn that Desiree is trying to get them out. “If Chelsea is against me, she played me all day,” said Kellyn so she’s not sure if she believes Domenick.

Michael and Donathan talk about finding an idol and they take off to go look. They go searching and Donathan finds one! He finds Scot’s idol from Survivor’s 32nd season, Brain vs. Brawn vs. Beauty in 2016. The idol can be combined to make a super idol, but Tai decides not to use it at Tribal. Tai’s idol is hidden under the center of the shelter and if Donathan combines it with the one he found, it’s a hidden immunity idol. Donathan tells Laurel so they can work with him and he finds the other half.

Come in on guys! It’s individual immunity time. It’s a ball-balancing challenge, but Wendell drops quickly. Jenna drops next before the game has even gotten started. Laurel and Angela drop. Michael shakes, but doesn’t drop. Half the group drops in seconds. Donathan drops. Domenick drops. The challenge has only been going on for two minutes. Sebastian shakes but recovers. Michael drops.

After 10 minutes, it’s Chelsea, Kellyn and Sebastian who are left. Kellyn drops.

The winner of individual immunity is CHELSEA! Third woman in a row to win individual immunity.

Back at camp: Desiree is happy that Kellyn lost and she wants to take her out. Chelsea, Kellyn and Desiree talk and Kellyn talks about how Desiree is coming after her, but of course Desiree is denying it. They realize that Laurel is the one who blabbed. Desiree approaches Laurel about why she blabbed and says don’t throw me under the bus. Desiree is lying and forgets that Donathan was there for the conversation. Domenick sees that Desiree is a little off and says that the bigger players need to get together and do something about this. The Naviti 7 is broken and, Michael says, it’s about to shatter. Jenna tells Kellyn that the conversation did happen with Laurel and she can’t figure out the truth.

Domenick asks Kellyn about getting out Des, but Kellyn reminds him that the guys have been getting what they want. Kellyn tells him they want Michael out. However, Kellyn does not realize all the behind-the-scenes that is about her.

It’s Tribal Council, night 27. Things are going to get heated. Desiree is still lying at Tribal and it gets heated.

Donathan does not play his hidden immunity idol for Michael.

Who goes home this week? DESIREE!

So who’s left and in what order do I think they’ll win? I’m going to stick with my list, minus Desiree.
