Survivor May 11, 2022 Voted Off Drea Wheeler In Major Blindside Fashion (Recap)
Hey, “Survivor” fans. Tonight, May 11, 2022, another new episode of Survivor’s current season 42 did indeed air, and we saw another contestant get a hefty blindside shaft at the end.
Tonight’s episode kicked off with the remaining contestants talking about how they blindsided Hai at the last tribal council meeting. Mike was especially happy about how it went down. Romeo told the private cams, “I can just sit back and let the big egos take each other out.” Lindsay told the private cams, “Me and Drea now have a steal a vote advantage to possibly change the game.”
At one point, Mike was seen talking to Drea, Lindsay, Omar and Jonathan about how Romeo doesn’t ever do anything in this game, and they all agreed that he just takes, takes, takes. However, Mike told the private cams that Drea is a big threat, and he really wants to get her out. He just pitched the Romeo scenario out there to get Drea to think Romeo is the target. Mike began to actually campaign to target Drea.
However, Omar told private cams, “I don’t trust Mike anymore,. He’s become just like Hai, and that’s not going to work.”
Elsewhere,there were some issues that took place between Jonathan and Drea. Apparently, Drea and Lindsay were working on preparing a fishing net. Jonathan was giving them instructions on how to do it. Then, Drea told Jonathan that he needs to come and actually help them do it. Jonathan said, “I’m doing all I can. I would just get in your way.”
Drea told the private cams that she didn’t like Jonathan’s attitude in that moment. Meanwhile, Jonathan got equally mad at Drea for trying to accuse him of not doing enough to help out. Lindsay appeared to be on Drea’s side of this argument as she told the private cams, “I want Jonathan out because he’s not a great ally.” Lindsay campaigned to Drea, Romeo and Maryanne to get Jonathan out. They all seemed to agree in that moment.
Next, host Jeff Probst showed up with the new Immunity Challenge. This one had a twist. The contestants drew rocks to see whether they could even compete in this Immunity Challenge. Lindsay and Jeremy were the only ones who drew rocks that would allow them to compete. The others drew grey rocks. So, they couldn’t play.
Lindsay and Jonathan had the option to not compete in this immunity challenge. However, if they chose to compete in it, the loser had to play a game of “do or die” at the next Tribal Council meeting. If they lost this do or die challenge, they were eliminated. If they won, someone else would get voted off.
Jonathan and Lindsay both decided to compete for immunity. In this challenge, they had to balance themselves on a narrow perch while holding a handle behind their heads. The last one standing, won. It got to a point where Lindsay just couldn’t hold on any longer. So, Jonathan won immunity, and Lindsay had to play the do or die challenge at the next tribal council meeting.
Lindsay told the private cams, “I should’ve decided not to play for immunity, but the competitor in me just took over.” Meanwhile, Mike kept campaigning for Drea to go if Lindsay wins the do or die challenge. Lindsay, Maryanne and Jonathan all agreed with Mike to get out Drea.
Omar also agreed that getting Drea out is best. However, Drea told Omar that she can take Mike’s immunity Idol with one of her advantages. Omar acted like he loved it. So, they made plans to vote out Mike instead. Drea got Romeo on board to get Mike out by telling him Mike was campaigning for him to go.
Omar told Lindsay about Drea’s plan to take Mike’s idol. She seemed to like it. However, Omar told the private cams that he might choose to blindside Drea or Mike if Lindsay loses the do or die challenge.
At the tribal council meeting, they just did some general talking about the game. Then, it was time for Lindsay to play her do or die challenge. In this challenge, Lindsay was given the option to choose one box out of three boxes. If the box she picked contained a flame, she was safe. If the box she picked contained a skull, she was eliminated. Lindsay picked the middle box and stuck with it. That turned out to be an enormous lucky decision for her because it did contain the flame! So, Lindsay was safe! They had to vote to get someone else out.
Before the votes were read, Drea pulled out her “Knowledge Is Power” advantage to try and steal Mike’s idol. All she had to do was ask him if he had it, and he would have to give it up to her. So, Drea did ask Mike if he had an idol, and he said no. In that moment, it was revealed that, earlier, Omar actually turned on Drea by telling Mike all about Drea’s “Knowledge Is Power” advantage. Mike gave his idol to Omar just before the tribal council meeting. So, the idol was still in play in Omar’s hands.
After all of that, it was revealed that Mike got 3 votes, and Drea got 5 votes. So, with the 5 votes, Drea totally got blindsided and ousted from the game and into the jury. She took her loss well. She laughed about it and gave everyone a hug.
On her way out, Drea said, “I went out fighting.” Then, she told everyone that Omar flipped on her to warn them about him. She said, “He was the only one who knew about my secret advantage.” She told Jonathan, “You were never my target, but I was always your target.” Drea laughed again as Jeff put out her torch.
