2. Orchestrated Aggression.

  • John keyed Vanessa in on the fact that he has purposefully been throwing Steve’s name around to hide the fact that he is still close with Steve.

3. Illegal Bribe/Offer.

  • Vanessa said she would guarantee that Julia would be staying by offering to give her $10,000 if Julia were to be evicted. Big Brother quickly called Vanessa to the diary room to tell her that this was a serious breach of the rules if she was offering money. Vanessa exited the diary room and backtracked by telling the twins that she was only talking in terms of money because she is used to doing that with poker. She again made sure they knew there was no offer of actual money on the table.

4. Worst Case Scenario.

  • Vanessa and Steve discussed their game moving forward and they agreed that James is the only person in the house who may nominate the two of them together.

5. Worrying About the Vote.

Survivor: Changes to Hidden Idols (Entertainment Weekly)

Source: Entertainment Weekly

There are actually two big twists with the idols this season, the first of which is that every idol will look different. This could lead to more confusion among the contestants as to which idols are real and which are fake. Host Jeff Probst explained the idea behind it while speaking to EW on location for filming in May. “The first thing we’re doing with the idols is we’re making idols look different, so every idol will be unique,” says Probst. “One idol will look really fancy and the next idol will look like a 5-year-old made it. So when you get an idol, you’re going to have to convince somebody it’s real because they’re going to think it isn’t. But that also opens a door to make a fake idol … and they won’t know which is up and which is down. You can play all angles on this.”

But that is just the first wrinkle to the immunity idols, and this reporter could not be more excited about the second. While the look of the idols will be different, so will the location of where you can find them. For the first time ever, idols will hidden in the middle of challenges. Probst explains: “To get an idol you’re going to have to do something that you, Dalton Ross of Entertainment Weekly, have been pitching for years — along with us — which is hiding the idol in the middle of a challenge. So here’s how it will work: Day 1, they start building their shelter, you know people are going to start looking for an idol. They’re going to find it in a tree or under a trunk — whatever. But it will be a clue and the clue will say, ‘Good news, the idol is within reach. You just have to be daring enough to grab it.’ And we’re going to have a drawing [of the challenge]. You will know exactly where it is. There is no search. The only question is, can you do it in front of your tribe in the middle of a challenge and get away with it? I love that.”

1. Enemies Moving Forward.

  • John and Vanessa cleared the air and talked about how John is alone in this game after losing friends almost every week. They also talked about how so much has been pinned on each of them and discussed how they may be open to working with one another in this game since John feels alone.

2. Final 2 Shenanigans.

  • John revealed to Austin that he and Steve formed a final 2, though Steve will not admit to it in separate conversations. Steve keeps blaming John for assuming that he and John formed a Final 2 deal. Austin is unhappy that the stories do not line up.

3. Target Revealed, Possible Veto Use.

  • Steve admitted to Vanessa that she was supposed to be a target this week since Austin was still upset with her for things that happened in previous weeks. After clearing the air, Steve pointed out that his actions during the HoH (where he sent home Jackie) prove his loyalties lie more with Vanessa and Austin than with John. After clearing the air with both John and Steve, Vanessa has been considering using the veto on one of them in hopes that James or Meg can be sent home.

4. Boyfriend, Girlfriend.

  • After a date night, Austin and Liz made their relationship official.

5. Shutting it Down.

  • Austin does not like the plan to send home Meg or James because he thinks it makes the target on him and the twins much larger, while John and Steve will continue to slide through the game and also not be targeted for anything that happens this week.
