Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 26 THE FINALE

AHHHH IT’S FINALE NIGHT! Last night’s ep got me right back to CRAZY EXCITED again so let’s all cross our fingers and pray to the Survivor gods for a Jericho win and we can really go out with a bang. Okay, there’s lots of recappy stuff obviously about previous players (and Luricho was revived so briefly!) but we are getting into it quick with an immunity challenge right off the bat. In fact, it’s the same one as last year when they have to stand on two uneven poles and…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 25

Well this is new. The episode kicks off not at camp, but right at what seems like a challenge. But not really. There’s no actual challenge. Just a reward! Now wouldn’t it be nice if life was like that? For the first time on the Aussie version (I’m pretty sure) the players’ families are HERE to visit them! And not just one loved one per person either! Tara’s kids and hubby are there, Pete’s parents, Michelle’s sister and Jericho’s brother. I have to say, family…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 24

OMG IT’S FINALE WEEK AND THANK GOODNESS BECAUSE IT’S BEEN A VERY LONG SEASON AND THREE EPS A WEEK IS A LOT! But also – yayyy let’s just watch Jericho win this thing! I believe they filmed the finale on Friday already and I just can’t for the life of me understand why they wouldn’t do it live? No chance of spoilers that way! But anyway. As we saw last week, Locky of course has been booted and it was a long time coming. It was his time. Now it…

Week That Was (Sept 30 – Oct 6)

Full disclosure – I totally forgot about wrapping up the week this week. When I wracked my brain to update y’all on the big pop culture news that happened, I realised no big pop culture news happened. A tragedy happened, and America still has guns. I guessed they missed the memo that banning guns tends to end mass shootings and murder. Then again, if Sandy Hook didn’t change anything in the US, nothing will. But I’m just here for the celebs. Eh. But really, we all need our bright shining lights of joy to…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 23

Despite being on the wrong side of a majority alliance, it seems proud Locky refuses to beg or hustle to stay in the game. He “promised” himself he wouldn’t and he will not debase himself. On Survivor. For half a million dollars. He is too proud. OMG GO HARD LOCKY. WHY GIVE UP NOW? YOU’LL BE MORE EMBARRASSED THAT YOU CAME SO CLOSE AND THEN DECIDED TO HALF-ARSE IT! Anyway, I guess he and Tara have broken up now. Until he wins immunity that is, and then I bet she’ll be…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 22

Well last week, Australia’s collective heart was SHATTERED INTO A MILLION PIECES when Luke was sent to the Jury Villa. Poor Jericho is maybe more cut up than all of us combined, as Luke was of course his #1 ride or die homie. Will Jericho now step up and win this for the both of them? He’s gotten through without too much drama so far because Luke mostly takes the heat and Jericho is the straight-up nice guy, but this is his chance to go big. And he is definitely planning to let loose. He…

Week That Was (Sept 23 – Sept 29)

Ugh. I hate the week after the Emmys. It feels like you’re about to launch back into awards season, you have a taste of it all (the fashion, the Pop Culture Moments, the bitter disappointments, the hangover…) and then it’s cruelly snatched away for another 3 months. Sigh. Luckily this week our new future princess got her first proper debut with her boo, the Supers reunited, T Swift got knocked off her perch, RIGGINS IS BACK and Jakey G is on the PR trail. Aaaand unfortunately, maybe one of my favourite shows of all time got cancelled. You…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 21

GUYS only 7 players are left. And for the life of me, I can’t get a good read on who is going home tonight. I have a feeling that the producers are about to pull one over on me and save somebody. To draw this thing out. Which will annoy me, coz I’ve looked forward to this all day. Unless it saves someone I want to stay (like Luke or Jericho). I guess I wouldn’t mind if Michelle went home. It would make sense after Sarah got ousted, you know? It’d be…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 20

So we left off with a win for the #BeerAlliance I guess, with Tessa being booted last night and the #ChampagneAlliance definitely, um, being spilt. Alas, Michelle was not in on the plan so tonight I anticipate very fiery fireworks from old mate. She is NOT gonna be happy and WON’T be afraid to let her old alliance know. Following Tribal, the proverbial shit hit the fan. With 4 names up for elimination, everyone’s a little shooketh. When Michelle finds out who her alliance voted for, she is LIV-ID. Especially because she had just asked…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 19

Once the fallout of Henry’s vote has settled, Luke is getting preeeetty comfy with his position in the tribe. So that of course gives me automatic anxiety. Luckily he has his spy shack set-up so he can listen in on peoples’ conversations and gain some much-needed intel. The opportunity arises when Tessa and Ziggy head to the water well, and start strategising together once again. With their combined forces, they want Jericho out. The #ChampagneAlliance is no more in Luke’s eyes. Which is fine because he is a “beer man” anyway…
