'Survivor: Nicaragua' quick take: Double elimination time!
Eliminations are so nice they had to do it twice on tonight’s episode of Survivor: Nicaragua. The tribe members battled for individual immunity, with each tribe then having to vote someone out. My full recap will be up at midnight (UPDATE: Click here to see Dalton’s detailed Survivor recap), but if you’ve already watched and want to sound off on the people sent home, then read on after the jump for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Wednesday’s episode of Survivor: Nicaragua.]
In an individual challenge that forced the contestants to catch rings while wearing toilet-looking contraptions on their butts, Holly and Jill each won immunity. Jill then beat Holly in a final ring toss allowing the La Flor tribe to feast on kabobs while watching Espada’s Tribal Council — after voting out one of their own, of course. And La Flor’s Tribal Council was a doozy indeed. Clearly in trouble, Marty still decided against using his hidden immunity idol. When the votes came up with 3 for him and 3 for Kelly B., it appeared Marty would be sent home on the re-vote (especially with no idol to protect him), but instead it was Kelly who was voted out of the tribe. Finally, a good ol’ fashioned shocker!
La Flor then stuffed their faces while they watched two Espada members, Dan and Yve, attack each other’s arrogance and lack of a sunny disposition. In the end, the youngsters of Espada voted to keep the walking wounded in Dan and kick scrappy Yve out of the game.
Did La Flor blow it by voting out one of their own and keeping an immunity packing Marty in the game? Did Espada blow it by keeping a guy who can’t even walk on their tribe?
