Survivor: Game Changers Bonus Content Roundup – Week 11

Taako From Teevhii shares the best bonus scenes from the previous episode of Survivor: Game Changers.

This Week In Secret Scenes

“I Ain’t Got No Energy”

International Linque

I know some people read these summaries before watching the clip, so let me say: watch this clip. I don’t know how this didn’t make it into the final cut. It’s a travesty. It’s an injustice. It’s a farce. And even worse, CBS is airing a rerun of NCIS: LA in Survivor’s time slot next Wednesday. Is that the reason CBS didn’t extend this season by an episode? This is one of the best moments of the season outside of The Sugarbowl, and it’s immediately relevant to the plot of the next tribal. And it gets cut because two boots had to be stuffed into one hour. To everyone who claims that you can’t stretch a single day into a full episode *leans into mic* wrong. Especially when Michaela B. is on the island.

This Week In Confessionals

“There’s Something About Her That Makes Me A Little Leery”

International Linque

This is a lesson to all you young Survivor players out there: Don’t wait to get before you get got. Zeke made this mistake in targeting Andrea. Andrea made this mistake in targeting Sarah. Survivor strategy is all about timing, but you can’t make a move if you’re not in the game. Andrea picks up on the “little things that Sarah does” and even compares her to Tony. Yet it still seems that targeting Sarah is something that can wait until next tribal. As Andrea says, “You can play like Tony, but you can really only get away with that one time with newbies. I don’t really think you can do that again with returning players.” *Ron Howard voice: You can.*

“I’m Playing Like Tony”

International Linque

I don’t necessarily agree with this player comp, but I think it’s worth mentioning that it’s been brought up by multiple people. Sure, one of those people is Sarah herself, but Tony is being mentioned more than Troy at this point, and there’s a reason for that. This may be the thing that pushes the jury’s mixed opinion on Sarah to an overall positive assessment.

This Week In Ponderosa

“She Would’ve Won The Million Dollars”

International Linque

Even though she would never win any of them, I could watch Andrea play in twenty more seasons. As Hali says, Andrea is “really strong socially; very strong strategically; smart; fun; funny.” And even more to the point, if Andrea had made it to FTC, “it would have been a little too obvious” who was winning. Andrea is always fun to watch (and this Ponderosa is no exception), but for those reasons, she can never be under the radar and can never get all the way to the end.

What’s also interesting is that it sounds like Andrea and Zeke had screaming fights, plural, out on the island. There’s one that stands out in particular, but there seems to be more to this storyline than what we were shown. We missed out on that and on a Survivor: Brooklyn reference *shakes fist at sky*.

“I’m Just A Lucky Girl”

International Linque

This Ponderosa is so fun and joyous and happy. A Ponderosa for the ages. And I could say something shady like, “It’s a wonder how anyone found Michaela annoying” or “Crazy how anyone could have a problem with someone this delightful.” But I’m not saying those things. Nope, definitely not saying that. Anyway, watch this video.

This Week In The Jury Box

Hali called the latest tribal unprecedented chaos and sees Cirie and Sarah as frontrunners (YouTube Link and International Linque).

Ozzy says Cirie should have known what “non-transferrable” meant (not considering that she might not have had time to read it) and says Sarah will win if she makes it to FTC (YouTube Link and International Linque).

Debbie condescends and claims that Cirie’s blunder has won her a million dollars (YouTube Link and International Linque).

Zeke believes that any outcome besides Sarah winning will be a waste of this season’s potential (HA!) and can’t see himself voting for any of the remaining men (YouTube Link and International Linque).

Sierra is loving Sarah’s game and rooting for Culpepper and Troy (YouTube Link and International Linque).

Andrea holds Sarah and Cirie responsible for her boot, but feels differently about each (International Linque).
