THE DOCTOR IS OUT — The Unofficial Guide to Survivor: Blood Vs. Water Episode 3

THE DOCTOR IS OUT -- The Unofficial Guide to Survivor: Blood Vs. Water Episode 3

Here’s everything you need to know about what happened in Survivor: Blood Vs. Water Episode 3 — “Opening Pandora’s Box” – who won the challenges, who was voted of, who played well, and who is on the outs. Feel free to add your notes, thoughts, and questions.

Aired October 2, 2013, covering day 7 through night 8

Reward/Immunity Challenge winner: Galang (comfort items inc. pillows, blankets, etc.)

Voted Out: John – The blindside was a little less dramatic than one would have hoped, but beyond that, John’s elimination further weakens an already weak tribe, both physically and mentally. His ouster means that the girls’ place in the tribe is further diminished, unless Hayden or someone else wises up and gets rid of Brad. How weird will it be to be competing directly against his wife in the Redemption Island challenge(s)?

Colton

Removed: Colton – Colton removed himself from the game after failing to get any kind of control within his tribe. It’s a disappointing end to a disappointing performance; Colton struggled to turn things upside down and was just completely pathetic the entire 7 days he was out there. Boo.

Eliminated: Rachel - Surely there are players left in the game who have less to offer, but Rachel’s only mark on the game was being used as a pawn in order to draw out Tyson.

Doing It Right:

Tyson & Rachel

Tyson - Tyson’s confessionals are the best, because he’s got such a great handle on his surroundings and the game as a whole. He has identified what both Brad and Colton did or are doing wrong in non-personal terms and he’s got a great level head considering his girlfriend is out.

Hayden – Even though he chickened out on making a move against Brad, at least he recognizes the lay of the land. He’s making and presenting decisions in a much more relaxed manner which includes others, rather than the abrasive methods of Brad’s.

Doing It Wrong:

Brad - Brad talks and acts like he is controlling his tribe, but that’s barely the case. He just makes moves that paint targets on his own back instead of moving stealthily. It’s only a matter of time it catches up with him, and he doesn’t strike us as the kind of person with the mental stability to perform well at Redemption Island.
