BLEAK GREEKS -- The Unofficial Guide to Survivor: Blood Vs. Water Episode 8

Here’s everything you need to know about what happened in Survivor: Blood Vs. Water Episode 8 — “Skin of My Teeth” – 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 November 6, 2013, covering night 18 through night 20

Immunity Challenge winner:  Vytas

Voted Out: Aras – Aras’s edit over the last few episodes led us to believe that he didn’t have anywhere near the level of control in this game that he thought he did (or should). Tyson has risen to the smart schemer role and Aras was so concerned with getting to the final 3 with Vytas and basking in his own glory that he didn’t have any idea that he didn’t even have the numbers for the next vote. Aras is one of the most cerebral players to play this game, and he was simply outsmarted because he is also one of the most smug.

Eliminated: John & Laura B. – John & Laura B. were eliminated at the final Redemption Island challenge.

Player Notes:

Tyson – Tyson found the Hidden Immunity Idol and wisely decided to keep it to himself for the time being. Notice the prophetic words of Aras, who noted that Tyson couldn’t possibly go on a run because of his broken arm. At this point, it really looks like this game belongs to Tyson and Gervase. Orchestrating Aras’s ouster was no small feat and was planned meticulously over the course of several days. But the best thing about watching Tyson is that he’s doing all of this and just plain having fun.

Monica & Ciera

Laura M. & Ciera – all that bluster about who much power they held and it turns out they didn’t hold anywhere near what they thought they did, but that’s the nature of the game – especially right after the merge.

Laura B. – Laura B. doesn’t “freaking get it” – and that’s why she was at Redemption Island. It’s good to see her go – every sentence out of her mouth made us cringe and feel embarrassed for her.

Other Notes:

John, Laura B., & Laura M. competed in the final Redemption Island challenge. John was the first out, Laura B. the second, and Laura M. returned to the game and the tribes merged on day 19.

Laura put the Hidden Immunity Idol clue in the fire so no one would get it.

The merged tribe name is Kasama and the buff colors are purple.
