‘Survivor’ Season 43 Episode 10 Summary – [Spoiler] deselected
A life lesson for all of us: to keep things going according to plan, always make a detailed and thoughtful list.
That’s exactly what Jesse did on Wednesday survivor when targeting a target, socially maneuvered to secure a case guy and a backup plan and then pulled the trigger masterfully. But which unfortunate player was his grand scheme aimed at? Let’s break it all down.
As the tribe unwraps the final two voices, here’s a particularly notable revelation from the post-tribal segment: Jesse reveals that everyone (more or less) knows about Karla’s immunity idol. It seemed like her pearl bracelet was the only unknown element in this whole equation, but that was finally settled. And it plays a bit of a part in Wednesday’s episode. But we don’t have much time to dally as we hop straight into the first challenge of the night!
REWARD | Players must spin in a jig before overcoming a series of obstacles and collecting a sandbag. The person who lands the sandbag on a high tower wins a trip to the survivor Sanctuary where they get all they can eat plus a night out of camp with pillows and blankets. Sounds worth playing to me!
Sure, it’s always fun to watch dizzy people stumble and fumble around, although I don’t envy them when they try to walk across a balance beam in total dizziness. Cody is the first person to tower toss, but Cassidy is the first to unrope and get started. Noelle, meanwhile, struggles a lot while trying to cross the beam. She’s close to tears, but the fighter in her doesn’t give up for a second. She eventually makes it by hopping sideways, but begins to lose suction on her prosthetic leg. She only needs a few throws (at least that’s what we see), but she does the unthinkable and wins the challenge. It’s the ultimate comeback from behind. The ultimate inspiration. The ultimate survivor Story.
Jeff then reveals that she will also get a letter from home, and of course she has to choose three people to join her in the sanctuary. She chooses Sami, Jesse and Owen.
REFUGE | The four players get their letters from home and unfortunately due to COVID this is pretty much the substitute for visiting loved ones. After reading their letters, Sami tells them that he is done with the flip-flop. He wants to get Cassidy out for good, leading to a possible plan to split six votes between Cass and Karla. Will it bear fruit?
WAREHOUSE | As the losers of the challenge prepare their vastly inferior meal, they discuss Sami’s unpredictable gameplay. Cass and Cody talk about Noelle being a big threat who is slowly building a good resume. Cass knows she needs to get Gabler on board to get anywhere, but is she going with a wild card? This is a delicate matter. Gabler, on the other hand, is happy to be in the middle and have options.
IMMUNITY IS TO GET BACK | Probst explains the challenge we’ve seen before: Hold onto a platform with one hand while simultaneously creating and stacking a house of cards that can reach the red arrow above it. And based on montage of falling houses this challenge looks like miserable. Cassidy becomes incredibly close to her on several occasions, only to see her efforts continually crumble. But like Noelle, she doesn’t give up and wins this powerful chain of immunity.
STRATEGY | With Cass immune, attention turns to Karla, but no one seems to trust Sami. Despite the fact that Noelle picked Jesse for the reward, he knows he can’t play emotionally. According to him, Noelle always bounces back after a loss (Justine, Dwight) and he knows she’s got what it takes to eventually cut him. Jesse then begins working on a checklist: 1) Have a cover story… to tell Noelle. 2) Throw a drop guy under the bus… Sami. 3) Have a backup plan… the AlliGabler.
But for his plan to work, he needs Noelle to implement it own Plan and distribute the votes. He also needs Gabler to write down Noelle’s name. But Gabler is no wimp. He knows that Jesse and Cody are running the show, and he talks to Karla about “the real power couple” in the game.
tribal council | After Noelle gives more props for being an absolute beast, the issue of trust is discussed. Owen says he hopes his plan works, but since you can’t trust anyone in this game, who knows? Strategy changes from person to person, hour to hour, and people’s body language changes minute to minute, according to Cody. There’s also talk of people playing like silent assassins (which, honestly, it’s been a quiet-moving season – nothing super flashy here). Still, it’s time to vote.
Jeff demands benefits and while the camera zooms in on Karla, she keeps her poker face and not playing her idol. But when all is said and done, she remains safe and Noelle is voted out by five votes to her name.
Was the tribe right to give the boot to Noelle? Who is currently playing the best game? Leave some comments to let us know.
