Recap For Sept. 22, 2010
This year a group of 20 American’s travel to Nicaragua to form into two tribes, the young and the old in this season’s Survivor Nicaragua. Jimmy Johnson takes control of the older tribe and finds resistance in Jimmy T and Marty. On LaFlor, younger tribe member Kelly B, an amputee, locates a clue to the immunity idol. The older tribe, Espada chooses not to use the Medallion, loses the competition and votes Wendy out at Tribal Council. Holly is unhappy to have turned on tribemate Wendy to vote her out with the rest of the tribe and feels the need to rethink her morality in the game.
Marty, from Espada, expresses concern that there is not a strong shelter in place. Espada holds a morning meeting to divide the chores. Jimmy T is very bothered by the leadership role that Jimmy J is holding. Marty decides to use the leadership role of Jimmy J and keep to the background and lay low.
NaOrka on LaFlor finds that she has a good rapport with Sash as he confides in her that he is of mixed race. He shares with NaOrka that Kelly B has the heart and mind, but her body will not keep up in challenges, and he is looking for the opportunity to vote her out.
Holly sees Jill eating snails and takes offense. Jill, an ER doctor, finds it strange that Holly would take their pot and dump their snails. The tribe discusses her odd move and she overhears them. As revenge, she takes Dan’s shoes, fills them with sand, ties them neatly, and then sinks them in the surf as payback.
Dan soon misses his alligator shoes and cannot locate them. He says that they were $1600, and went missing from his bag. Holly decides to come clean and explains that she took his shoes and put them in the water. Tyrone says that Holly is going crazy and decides to keep one eye on her and one on his shoes. Dan decides that he will not offer any forgiveness.
On LaFlor, Naonka cannot locate her socks and says they were in her shoes. She decides to take Fabio’s socks in retaliation. He wants to approach her to return his extra pair of socks, but she jumps in quickly and attacks him. LaFlor now talks about voting Naonka out at the first opportunity.
On Espada, Holly is having second thoughts about the game and talks about going home. She gets a pep talk from Jimmy J. He says that fatigue makes cowards of us all and reminds Holly that the tribe needs her. She hopes that the emotional meltdown that she had will help her as the game progresses, but fears it will hurt her.
The tribes gather for the challenge. Immunity is up for grabs. One member of each tribe will race through a mud obstacle course to a haystack to locate a ball. Upon returning with the ball a second tribemate will relay until all four balls are brought in. Then other tribe members will balance and toss the ball using shields from shield to sheild to get it into a barrel. There is a reward to this challenge. The winning tribe may choose between a tarp with rope or fishing gear, snorkle, fins, and a spear. The medallion is in play for the older tribe and if they choose to use it, they will begin with one ball in the barrel. This also means that they can sit out a weak member. They decide to use the advantage and Dan sits out. Now that they have played the Medallion, it will move to LaFlor until it is used by them.
The older tribe stays in the lead for the beginning of the challenge, but when one ball is difficult to locate, the younger tribe moves ahead. The older tribe with their one ball advantage finally moves ahead again and Tyrone scores the winning ball in the barrel. Espada wins immunity and they select the fishing gear as their reward.
LaFlor is very surprised to lose the challenge and must make a decision on which tribe member to lose tonight at Tribal Council.
Holly is very excited to win the challenge. Jimmy J says that Holly is doing extremely well now, but his past experience is that a person who has a personal setback will have a second one as well.
Inside the fishing gear they find a clue to the immunity idol and read the clue to mean 15 feet west of tree man. Upon a closer read, jill realizes that it means treemail and tells Marty. The two of them search and locate it. Marty has actual possession of it, but Jill reminds him that it is theirs.
Naonka finds it awesome that Kelly B was not slowed down at all by her leg in the challenge. The girls also realize that Brenda has formed a close friendship with Chase and they decide to break this relationship up. They talk with Shannon about the situation. Shannon goes to Chase and tells him that they want to send Brenda home, but Chase has made an alliance on the side with her. He has to choose where his loyalty lies and decides that he will vote Brenda out.
It is day 6 and LaFlor finds itself splitting. Naonka talks to the girls about taking Shannon out. Brenda decides to form an alliance with Naonka and discusses with Chase taking Shannon out. They think that they can join forces with Kelly Purple. Alina overhears the conversation and Fabio and she talk. They decide that Brenda is causing drama and redouble their efforts to take her out. Brenda feels she has an equal vote to stay. Chase is on the fence and can’t decide which way to vote. Chase admits his alliance to each of them and Shannon accuses him of lying. Jeff says that never in 21 seasons has one question opened up so much whoop-a*. Shannon tells him that if the vote doesn’t go his way Chase will be looked at as the next to go. Jeff reminds him that it might not be the best thing to put it all out there right before the vote and then Shannon opens another can of worms when he says that New York is full of gay people. People in his tribe warn him to hush and he continues to talk. Trust has become an issue and Chase is questioned as someone not to trust. Brenda says she is not plotting and thinks that they want to take out a strong threat. Naonka feels that they are tight and Jeff says that if she thinks the tribe is tight she needs to get out of whatever tree she is in. She admits she does not like Fabio and he says he tries. She says he does not try hard enough. Various tribe members groan and suggest that they get to the vote.
When Jeff asks, Kelly B says that she wonders what will unify their tribe the most. She says people will vote to unify the tribe. Jeff calls for the vote.
Shannon, Brenda, Shannon, Brenda, Shannon, Brenda, Shannon, Shannon, Shannon. The second person voted out of Survivor Nicaragua is Shannon. The tribe has spoken. Jeff gives his thoughts to LaFlor. He says that the biggest threat to this tribe is the tribe itself. He sends them back to camp.
