Survivor Season 29: Season Finale

Fans of the game, the holidays plus the 3 hour long season premiere of The Bachelor really postponed my blogging.

The season finale kicked off with a girl fight between Natalie and Jaclyn. Jaclyn was so blindsided by John being outed at tribal she went back to camp guns a blazin’

until reality set in that her wine connoisseur lover would not be sleeping next to her on the ground tonight.

At the reward challenge, Keith won an advantage in the next immunity challenge.
Keith Wins Reward

And he sent Jaclyn to Exile.

When they got back to camp, Keith ventured off to find out what the advantage was.

They brought the next immunity challenge to Keith!!! He had all day to practice and perfect the challenge and get ready!!.

At the immunity challenge Keith blew it up! Nobody even came close.

Going into tribal, Natalie wanted to make a big move but she had a final 3 deal with Missy and Baylor. Unfortunately for Missy and Baylor, Natalie “surprise” played her idol for Jaclyn and sent Baylor packing.

Props to Natalie for pulling it off.

At the final immunity challenge, Keith, Jaclyn, Natalie and Missy (oh wait, Missy is still one leg down) duke it out to see who will make it to the final 3.

Natalie and Keith had a huge advantage over Jaclyn going into the puzzle.

But they couldn’t seem to pull it together and Jaclyn pulled ahead even though she could barely hold her head up.

And Jaclyn WON!

Back at camp, Jaclyn and Missy discuss who to vote out, Keith or Natalie.

At tribal council,

Keith Nale

I was sad to see Keith go. I would have liked to have seen him win some money over Missy.

On day 39, the ladies wake up to the final feast.

Survivor Season 29, Episode 7 Recap: “Strip Search”

This week on Survivor…


Tree mail arrived!

It’s MERGE TIME!!!!!!


Which means these two can still date.

Never forget.

Everyone is super excited to make it to the merge.

They have a big family feast,

with lobster and wine!

Julie is annoyed by all of the lovers because she misses this….
John Rocker

When they get back to camp, Jeremy gets to work to secure his alliance which already includes Baylor, Natalie and Julie. He locks down Jon and Missy.

Well played Jeremy!

The tribe picks a new tribe name #huyopa. That’s creative…

Josh only has an alliance of 5 so he approaches his homegirl Baylor. But Baylor is distracted.

Baylor feels bad about backstabbing Josh.

But don’t worry, her mom sets her straight.

Josh realizes that Baylor is flaking on their alliance so he decides to approach Jon and Jaclyn. Which puts Jon and Jaclyn in the middle again.

Meanwhile, everyone is up in arms about the missing trail mix.

Jon takes it into his own hands to search Julie’s bag while she is tanning on the beach.

It’s time for the first individual immunity challenge!!

The goal is to keep your ball on the slab.

It comes down to Keith and Wes. Keith WINS!!!!!!!

Back at camp the lovers decide that they are going to jump ship and align themselves with Josh’s crew.

But none of this matters because Julie, hoarder of the trail mix, decides to quit the game.

Jeff sits the tribe down to give them the news.
Julie Quits

The only one that I feel bad for in this scenario is Keith since he won the individual immunity challenge this week.
