The challenge appears to be a variant of the slingshot release-and-catch game, last seen on Panama-Exile Island, or in land-locked form in Guatemala. This time with lots of mud, and in apparently picked teams of four (vidcaps of picking above?), creatively colored (again) in green and orange. From the caps below, the teams appear to be:
- Green team: Stacy (shooting), Earl, Dre, Alex
- Orange team: Yau-Man (shooting), Cassandra, Boo, Mookie.
Who wins? Well, Boo (orange) gets injured, but he ends up looking muddier by the end of the challenge. And unhappy. And both Mookie (orange) and Dre (green) are shown celebrating, but Mookie is relatively clean when he does so, and Dre is both muddy and newly sans buff, and Dre seems ecstatic. So we'd say Dre's green team (Dre, Earl, Alex, Stacy) probably wins. Exiled:
Survivor: Fiji episode 11 detailed Exile spoilers/ speculation
Someone is getting exiled, but don't worry, you won't have to roll your eyes through more footage of forlorn castaways filling their time by fruitlessly digging up the island. Now they'll just sit around doing nothing, apart from reading clues about where they could be looking if they weren't exiled. How's that for progress?
Still, Probst swears that the hidden idols actually get played this season, so maybe those clues do actually turn out to be useful for something.
Who is the lucky person who gets to read the clues this episode? Well, if the orange RC team loses, there are four players to choose from: Cassandra, Boo, Yau-Man and Mookie. Cassandra is probably the most deserving, but it seems unlikely they'd send her. And Boo could go, but his injury in the RC might preclude that. That leaves either Yau-Man (perhaps to ensure he gets the clue to the reburied idol), or Mookie, out of punishment. We'd guess Yau-Man, but it could be any of them. IC:
Who wins? As far as we can tell, CBS didn't bother to release any images whatsoever of the immunity challenge, despite almost minutes of footage of the muddy RC. Our guess is that the challenge is sufficiently dull visually that they opted against it. Perhaps because they needed to find something physically undemanding to allow Yau-Man's win streak to continue. (Is it a bad sign when the ads show more footage from the previous episode than the upcoming one? We'd say yes, although that's always a good guess with Survivor). So we'd guess Yau-Man wins again
, supporting SurvivorPhoenix's (not specific to this episode) claim that Yau-Man "continues his unexpected and inspiring march towards the Survivor Challenge Pantheon before he is finally vanquished." Boot:
No info, but should Mookie escape getting sent to Exile Island in this episode, the surviving alliance of five from the previous episode could easily boot either Mookie or Alex
, without having to worry about another hidden idol, or traditional immunity (should one or the other win the IC). So it should be a fairly straightforward boot. Of one of the "two great brains." http://truedorktimes.com/survivor_fiji/spoilers/index.htm
