One Survivor Villain Goes Down While Heroes Battle Themselves

 Survivor Heroes vs Villains continues as the Heroes and Villains continue to battle. The night the Heroes went to Tribal Council, the Villains were losing something of their own: Sleep. Many of them didn't have to love through the rain in their past seasons but they sure felt it that night. As we know Samoa is a very rainy location and all but Rob complained about being wet. Rob claims to yet again be on the "buffoon" tribe, but his tribe of buffoons has always won in the end. Their issues didn't end the next day as their shelter was redesigned for the fifth time. Rob wanted to step up and take charge, as usual, but being on a tribe of nine other huge personalities that just wouldn't happen as easily as he thought.

Personalities clashed early on the Villains as Courtney went from a New York waitress to an architect, according to Randy at least. Her past is coming back to haunt her but luckily they haven't had the chance to get rid of her just yet. As Rob pushed harder to get the shelter done he also pushed his body to the breaking point. He was feeling light headed for awhile and we finally saw what happened as he passed out in the woods. Jerri was watching him, or was alerted by production, as Rob fell to the ground. She went to get help as Jeff and a medical team arrived. Rob couldn't drink his own water and was obviously out and shaking, most likely from hydration. Luckily he recovered quickly and they diagnosed him with the flu. With a little water in him and a visit from Jeff, Rob was back on his feet and ready to really play and win the game.

The Heroes were having a much more mellow morning except for Stephanie. Rupert had turned on his popularity enemy and began criticizing everything's he did and said. Stephanie bit her tongue though and let everything slide, which she normally wouldn't do, but it would probably bit her in the end. She at least knew what was going on and tried to remedy it. 

It was then time for the combo immunity/reward challenge which was a rehash from Tocantins. They had to first race out to roll several blocks back to their mat. Once all were back they created a series of steps with the blocks that would spell out their tribal name. The Heroes once again returned first with all their pieces while the Villains were one block behind them. The issue then arose as JT couldn't get everyone to listen while Rob shut everyone up to put the puzzle together and ultimately win yet another Immunity Challenge. The drama happened post-challenge as James went off on Stephanie. Blaming her for losing the challenge as SHE didn't listen to what JT was saying. He cursed the tribe out and was a sore loser. I never really liked James and I don't like him now. I personally find him boring but the way he acted was very out of line and I wouldn't be surprised if he goes home soon. Hopefully at least.

With their win the Villains also got a tarp. Although that was a nice reward, the guys were still battling it out to win over the leadership of the camp. While Rob returned with a giant clam, Russell sought out one of Shambo's, I mean a wild chicken, catching it with a spear. They had plenty of food, now if they only had some water so Rob wouldn't pass out so often!

Back on the Heroes side the line was clearly drawn as Colby/Steph/Tom and Rupert/James/Amanda created two sides. JT was between both alliances but ultimately sided with R/J/A, leaving the other three obvious to the division. That left Cirie and Candace the two outsiders that everyone wanted. While Stephanie worked Cirie by telling her she was next, Tom worked on Candace. The two then met up to talk and realized that they were both in the middle and decided to align. I can see them going far as Cirie always does well with a buddy, luckily it's not Amanda this time around. Cirie didn't give much clue as to which side they would take, as she didn't care who went as it wasn't them. But at least this means there was a chance for Steph to stay, a small one but at least a chance.

At Tribal Council the feud between James and Steph blew up. He attacked her by saying she lost the challenge for them and when she tried to defend herself he went crazy and started getting more aggressive towards her. Colby stepped in to try and save Steph from James' wrath as Tom did as well, outing their threesome but it was somewhat too late. It sucks that James kind of pushed Steph out of the game only claiming she's "bad luck" because of her Palau season. I think it is very stupid to base voting someone out of any All Star season because of a previous one. Stephanie was sadly voted out before really getting a chance to do anything or save herself. I hope James goes next, simply because he doesn't deserve to be a Hero any longer after the way he acted and should just switch tribes if you ask me!

Good episode summary! There sure were a lot of emotions clashing on episode 2!

Yep, it was an interesting episode. I was relieved to see that Boston Rob seems to be fine and he can continue to kick some butt in the season. James needs to take his happy pills or he's going to be voted out way before he should. Top on my list to vote out would be Cirie. She's a sneaky player and she never helps in winning a challenge. It's a great season with a great cast of characters. I look forward to every episode.

Showdown on Survivor: 20th Season, Episode 2
   Episode two of Survivor far surpassed the premier episode. First off, I enjoyed the faster pace. This show was meant to be one hour long. Longer than that, and it's just plain boring. Second, I enjoyed the opening credits. I'm sure this played in the premiere episode, but since everything was so new and different, I missed it. Third, there were more fantastically beautiful scenes of nature. And finally, there was a showdown between a couple of the players in the Heroes' …

 The second episode of Survivor Heroes vs. Villains kicks off in dramatic fashion. Last time, Miss Sugar became the first person from this series to get the boot. Who will go this time? Let's find out.      On the Villains' side, the tribe rebuilds their shelter for the fourth or fifth time and according to Randy, each new incarnation of the shelter is worse than its predecessor. Rob is frustrated with how inadequate the shelter is, but he bites his tongue and stays quiet. …
