All hail, girl power! After 23 seasons, an all-women alliance has finally made it to the final phase of the game.
With the gratifying boot of self-serving, idiotically cryptic blabbermouth Greg “Please Call Me Tarzan” Smith, the Salani Alliance has accomplished what no other group of females has been able to do and that is just stick together to the very end.
Greg’s banishment didn’t go off without a hitch though. The 64-year-old plastic surgeon from Texas tried to stir things up as best he could planting seeds of doubt against Chelsea. When some of the women compared notes and factored in how many men there are on the ‘One World’ jury, Greg’s manipulations were exposed and his plan soon fell apart.
Going into Sunday’s finale (Sunday at 8.00 et/pt) , your all-female final five are Alicia Rosa, Sabrina Thomson, Christina Cha, Kim Spradlin and Chelsea Meissner.
Everyone laughs at how ironic it was that Kat talked about loving blindsides and then got blindsided herself. Tarzan has a master plan to get him to the final three. He explains to Kim that they along with Christina would guarantee Kim the win.
Tarzan: Your biggest threat is Chelsea.
Kim: I know what Tarzan is saying is true but sending Chelsea home would be my worst nightmare come true.
Tarzan: My goal from the start was not be voted out first, make the merger, see my wife, make the final four and slip into the final three.
So, his plan was the same as anyone else who has played the ‘Survivor’ game. Great plan, Greg.
Chelsea pushes Christina hard. Tarzan cannot make it to the finals. He has to go home.
Once Christina is done talking to Chelsea, she tattles the entire discussion back to the others. Kim wonders if Chelsea blew her cover.
Chelsea and Kim talk. Chelsea wants to kick the crap out of Christina for revealing the conversation.
Kim fears walking the middle and making promises to everyone will eventually come back to bite her.

Overnight pampering on a yacht.
Chelsea picks Kim and Sabrina to accompany her on the reward.
Kim and Chelsea express their sisterly love for each other. The commit to final three.
Christina and Alicia are livid. They both claim Chelsea promised to bring them on the reward. They, along with Tarzan and Christina, agree to target Chelsea if she doesn’t win Immunity.
Alicia: It is us three against them. Let them draw rocks, I don’t care.
Tarzan reminds everyone that if Chelsea is safe, they can take out Kim instead.
When the ladies return, Alicia informs Kim that Tarzan wanted to target her.
Kim is sure Tarzan must go but only if she can convince Alicia that she cannot trust her minion – Tarzan.
Alicia: Nobody makes a fool out of me. I am the queen of the social game. I am the most powerful player in this game and I am going to stay that way.
Use fish hooks to capture puzzle pieces and use those pieces to build a fish skeleton.
Immunity from the Tribal Council vote.
Alicia beats Kim by seconds.
Kim and Chelsea make sure they are on the same page. Chelsea is worried that do-nothing Christina will stay in the game longer than she will. Kim assures Chelsea she is not going home. Kim won’t play the Hidden Immunity Idol just yet.
Tarzan says he is the last man standing due to the “grace of God”. Both Sabrina and Chelsea accuse Tarzan of playing people against each other. Tarzan admits to helping the women vote off all of the men.
Chelsea Meissner: Greg Smith
Kim Spradlin: Greg Smith
Sabrina Thompson: Greg Smith
Christina Cha: Greg Smith
Alicia Rosa: Greg Smith
Greg Smith: Chelsea Meissner
Reader Alert: Return to the Survivor blog this Sunday for my finale predictions.
That was a shocker. I really expected Kim and company to keep Tarzan around since he would be so easy to beat in the finals. I guess Christina fills that role nicely.
Speaking of Christina, will she actually do anything in this game?
Kim’s refusal to turn on Chelsea may work well for them both or could sink her game. Kim still has to be the odds-on favourite to win it all.
Word is that finalists will be in the last Tribal Council.
Some rumours are surfacing about the next edition of ‘Survivor’. Word is that there will be three returning players: Mike Skupin, Russell Swan, and Jonathan Penner. Each will lead a tribe, so the game will begin with three tribes instead of two. The location is the Philippines and is being filmed as we speak. Survivor filming is usually done in the summer and fall/winter. Speculation is that the filming schedule has been bumped up due to Jeff Probst launching his new talk show in the fall.
