Tunes to My Ears
Period 45 • Episode four
[Warning: The following contains MAJOR spoilers for Survivor Season 45 Episode 4, “Music to My Ears.”]
Even a tribe swap could not cease an unique Lulu member from currently being voted out in Survivor 45’s fourth episode. If it is any consolation, the new Lulu was not despatched to Tribal Council (the “Lulu loser” streak is above — they gained an immunity problem!), but an unique bearer of a yellow buff turned the fourth consecutive Lulu member to be voted out. And Jeff Probst (and viewers, no question) ended up not delighted when that participant requested to be voted out like Hannah in the premiere.
Jeff collected the 3 groups for what they considered was a problem, but it turned out to be a tribe swap. Gamers randomly chosen buffs wrapped in burlap from a bowl to develop new groups. The outcomes ended up Emily likely to Belo (the only new tribe with users from all 3 former teams), Kaleb being at Lulu, and Sean likely to Reba.
Emily benefited most from this alter-up. In its place of major with her reduce-throat angle as she did in the premiere, Emily determined to permit her new crew get to know the serious her 1st, strained interactions with Lulu and all. That way, she seemed like a crew participant to Drew and Austin, previously from Reba, and Brando and Kendra, who remained from Belo. Drew and Austin, a robust alliance with an idol and an gain in their favor, strike it off with the strategic Emily and quickly roped her into their alliance.
Kellie was ideal to make pals with the all-male and all-feminine alliances at Belo. With 4 previous Belos switching to Lulu, she moved camps with virtually all of her pals. Katurah, nonetheless, produced her dislike of Bruce distinct when questioning the tale Bruce instructed them about the journey he, Kaleb, and Brandon went on previously this year. Appropriate there, Katurah turned a concentrate on for Bruce, and Katurah — who’s been gunning for Bruce’s elimination due to the fact Working day one — appears to be wonderful with that. Kaleb recognized exactly where the previous Belo divisions lay when she warned of Bruce’s possible menace to their online games.
At Reba, Sean was the only new member. Every person else — Julie, Dee, J, and Sifu — experienced been on Reba all year very long. He speedily bonded with J, but Julie and Dee (with Sifu’s enable) went by Sean’s bag wanting for an idol to no avail. The women of all ages are persuaded Sifu has an idol (he does not Reba’s idol remaining with Austin) and want him out, but for the sake of owning more than enough bodily toughness for issues, they want to maintain Sifu and reduce Sean.
The immunity problem was an supreme check of teamwork. From standing inside of a bamboo cage, the new tribes experienced to have the substantial composition from the drinking water throughout the seaside and exactly area it on a marked place. Then, they experienced to dig a tunnel beneath the cage major more than enough for one particular participant to crawl out. That participant then untied and handed balls to their teammates in the cages, one particular of whom would consider to shoot them into 3 baskets of various heights to get.
The new Belo and Lulu labored collectively very well, but Reba, not as considerably. Kaleb snagged the get (and for the 1st time, flint) for Lulu with his pictures. New teammates Kellie, Jake, Bruce, and Katurah celebrated his milestone victory, which produced Kaleb tear up. Emily also cried recognizing she was not likely again to Tribal Council and recognizing this get further more cemented a bond with her new teammates. Reba struggled with the reduction, which marked their 1st excursion to Tribal Council.
By tears, Dee instructed Jeff there was no “excitement” likely to Tribal Council. She admitted they experienced much less bodily toughness than the other two new tribes. Specified that Sifu was the rationale they concluded not considerably driving Belo, he appeared priceless to Reba, but J instructed the cameras this was her opportunity to blindside Sifu and get him out. Dee and Julie also appeared to want Sifu out.
This episode is the 1st time due to the fact the premiere that viewers have noticed much more of Sifu’s individuality and tactic. His confessional uncovered self-recognition about the women’s alliance and the incorrect idea that he has an idol. But even with that know-how, he experienced no plan the women of all ages experienced place him on the chopping block (offered that he was the only rationale the tribe just about caught up in the immunity problem, they in all probability should really maintain him close to).
Reba spoke kindly of Sean all through Tribal speak with Jeff. And in On Hearth, the formal Survivor podcast, Jeff uncovered that each individual solo Reba job interview for this episode instructed them that Sifu was likely residence. Which is why it was so stunning to Jeff when Sean produced an psychological enchantment to the crew, inquiring them to vote him out, expressing his legitimate excellent “adventure” was his daily life with his partner at residence.
Jeff could not feel what he was listening to, but Dee whispered to Julie not to give into Sean’s plea and vote for Sifu as a substitute. 4 votes went to Sean, sending him residence as he requested, but there was also one particular vote for Sifu and one particular vote for Dee. As they hugged goodbye, Sifu whispered, “Did you vote for me?” Sean whispered again no, and Sifu understood that Reba’s have faith in experienced been damaged. Sean instructed the reality: the credits uncovered that Dee voted for Sifu, and Sean voted for Dee. Julie overlooked Dee’s purchase and voted for Sean,  separating herself from her closest ally.
Jeff stated Sean produced a massive error in the podcast, which drops new episodes right after each individual new Survivor episode. He persuaded himself he was on the outs, but Sifu was genuinely the aim. Inquiring to be voted out sealed his individual destiny. The tribe swap absolutely shook matters up, but we’d be delighted to under no circumstances see a participant self-reduce once again. With any luck ,, inquiring for your individual elimination will not be authorized in the foreseeable future. If not, what is the level of even competing?
