Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chance recap: Bunking With the Devil

We all see what’s happening here, right? It’s Dr. Will all over again. Who the hell is Dr. Will, you ask? Legitimate question. Dr. Will was the winner of Big Brother 2. Will Kirby was his name. Still is, as far as I know. Will was part of the unfortunately named “Chill Town” alliance that was fronted by him and an even more-unfortunately named white rapper who went by Mike Boogie. (In one of his in-house raps, Mike Boogie rhymed the word “party” with fellow contestant “Hardy.” He was quite the wordsmith.)

Anyway, Chill Town thought they were running the game but were quickly decimated by the rest of the house, which upset Will and Boogie greatly, who lamented that the house was being run by a bunch of “nerds.” Seriously, this was their greatest concern. They couldn’t understand how people less cool than themselves had somehow come into power. It was their worst high school nightmare come to life.

But then something weird happened. After all of his Chill Town allies were voted out, Dr. Will stuck around. “Eh, we can get him out anytime,” many people reasoned. “Hey, I can use him as a number to get rid of someone else instead and then take Will out after that,” said others. Week after week after week, Will was going to be the next to go — only he never did. Do I even need to tell you that he ended up winning the game?

Will was smart and savvy. He laid low when he needed to, and then when he got close to the end, he pounced. Are we now watching this exact same scenario play out again with Spencer Bledsoe? I certainly hope so, seeing as how he was my preseason pick to win the game, and every week he stays, he makes me look a little less stupid. Yet, at the same time, it is frustrating to see player after player constantly underestimate Spencer’s skill and savvy in this game. Getting rid of Shirin, Monica, and Woo before Spencer? Seriously?!?! What happened to getting rid of the biggest threat when you have the chance? Especially when that person is not part of your numbers and has no real allegiance to you whatsoever?

I give Ciera a total pass on this week’s vote. Savage way overplayed his hand by dictating the action instead of asking, and once Ciera heard her name go up as the pawn, she was well within her rights to flip the script to guarantee she was not in any actual danger. But what were Abi and Kass thinking? (I actually know what Abi is thinking: something about someone being dead to her. Most likely Woo, because she still has not gotten over those two votes he gave her.)

So Spencer lives to play another day. That’s good news for him. It’s good news for me. And it’s certainly good news for producers, who have never met a Spencer confessional interview sound bite they did not like. I think the scoreboard on confessionals at this point is something along the lines of:

Spencer: 168

Kelly Wiglesworth: 1

Hell, Terry’s son, Danny, has gotten more screen time this season than Wiglesworth. But here’s the thing: The longer you leave someone like Spencer in the game and say “No biggie, we can take care of him later,” the more dangerous he becomes — certainly more dangerous than Monica and Woo. We’ll see if this is the latest in a series of moves that comes back to haunt the remaining Second Chancers, especially since Spencer is now on about his fifth chance.

Okay, let’s get to it and recap an episode that saw bookend eliminations at start and finish. The episode begins with a boat arriving at Ta Keo camp, a tribe that was not even at that night’s Tribal Council. This is never a good sign. An even worse sign is Jeff Probst showing up at your beach. Delightful guy, but he’s never bringing good news, so when he strolls up the sand toward the shelter, it can’t help but feel ominous. “Terry,” he whispers. “Hey it’s Probst. I need to talk to you for a second. Come on out.”

NEXT: Terry gets bad news from home

They walk down the beach, and then Jeff drops the bombshell. “I just got a phone call from your wife, and your son, Danny — he’s in the hospital. Both your wife and the doctor think that it’s serious enough that you should go home to be involved. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t serious.”

Brutal. I swear this is my last Big Brother 2 comparison of the week, but back in that season, one of the contestants, Monica, was informed — on air, of course — that her cousin was missing after the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center. Monica chose to stay in the house and in the game. For Terry, the choice was obvious. “No question. I’ll go back, grab my bag, and then we’ll go.”

Terry goes over to inform his tribe and thanks them, telling the other five that he could not have done it with finer people. Little does he know that they were planning to vote him out at the next opportunity. But not even Chaos Kass is immune to the emotion of the moment and cries as she talks about how you have to be a parent to understand. And she’s right. Even I get a little misty as I watch this event that happened months ago play out on my TV screen. “Its worse than a medevac. It’s worse than anything on Survivor,” says Kass, and she’s right — for multiple reasons. For one thing, it’s your child, and no pain nor worry can compare to that. That is first and foremost.

And then there is just the terrible timing of Terry waiting nine years to come back to play, only to have an emergency happen halfway around the world at that exact same time that causes him to abandon his dream. That sucks. But, of course, all that means nothing when stacked up against concern for the health of your son. Any what ifs Terry would have about how he may have done this season — and those are natural no matter what the situation — are inconsequential when measured against real-life survival stuff like this.

Luckily, this story appears to have a happy ending. Terry’s son, Danny — a high school junior — was found to have an enlarged heart, spent months in the hospital and had open-heart surgery, and then had a successful heart transplant in September. So, you know, kind of like Abi’s knee tendon. Seriously, though, as a parent of a child who also has had heart issues, I know how scary these things can be. It was awesome seeing Terry and his son together at the end of the episode, and I am so happy the family is doing well.

Okay, let’s bring it back to the island and get to the reward challenge. Angkor walks in and then Bayon. But where is Ta Keo? Doesn’t the losing tribe usually walk in last? Ah, but then we would not have the dramatic reaction shots of shock and surprise when people see that Terry is gone.

Memo to future Survivor contestants: There are a few sure-fire ways to get extra airtime when you are a contestant: 1) Be Spencer. 2) Always talk about how awesome whatever product that bought airtime on the show is. Mike proved to be a pro at this last season via his incessant Snickers endorsements, but Coach was the true Jedi Master when it came to hilariously over-the-top product-placement praise when he punctuated a Survivor: South Pacific private reward screening of Jack and Jill by telling us, “Adam Sandler — personally, I’m a fan.” 3) My favorite: the look of shock when you see who is missing from the other tribe. Now, surely this was surprising to see Terry gone seeing as how they had not even been to Tribal Council, but someone always does look shocked no matter who is missing. “What?! They voted out Shirin? CRAZY?!?!?” It’s actually not crazy. But if you act like it is, and are willing to open your mouth 3 miles wide like Eliza Orlins at Tribal Council, then you’ll get a bit more face time.

NEXT: Another tribe switcheroo

But, like I said, this is one of the few legitimate shockers for the others to see. And it causes folks like Wiglesworth and Ciera to shed tears once they are informed of the circumstances. After that, Probst asks everyone how they’re enjoying their current tribes. Jeremy says that they have a nice little family on Bayon. Savage says, “This four are unbelievably tight” of Angkor. Of course, when Probst does this it can only mean one thing: tribe switcheroo time. Which brings us right back to all those shots we love of contestants feigning shock at the announcement. Why do I say feigning? Because they all already know they are going down from three tribes to two. And how do they know? Because there are only two lanes of slip ‘n’ slide right in front of them, as opposed to three. If a challenge is set up for two tribes, that’s a pretty good indication that a contraction is in order.

Still, they came all this way to get on TV so might as well play along and pretend to be surprised when Probst announces, “Everybody drop your buff.” For Savage, it is music to his ears. “The three most beautiful words in the world for me — drop your buff.” (Some married people might go with “I love you,” but I’m sure your wife will be totally cool with that, Andrew.) Anyway, let’s meet our new tribes.

















That means Kass and Spencer will have to deal with working together on Ta Keo, even though, as Kass says, “There’s not a love connection there.” (Paging Chuck Woolery!) Meanwhile, Kelley notices she is the only original Ta Keo on her tribe but hopes the Bayon folks she worked together with after the first tribe switcheroo will have her back. And then there is Stephen, who likes the fact that there is an obvious target in Kelley but says it is “terrifying” to have all those alpha males. With that in mind, here is a partial list of other things that terrify Stephen:

  • Tree branches
  • Sling shots
  • Running on slip ‘n’ slides
  • Ring tosses
  • Sitting next to JT at final Tribal Councils
  • Appearing in Dalton Ross recaps.

Oh, Fishbach. I think most of you all know that Stephen and I are buddies (he blogs for EW’s sister publication,, which makes his antics this season that much more delightful to cover. It’s as if he’s thinking to himself, “There’s no Coach or Specialist this season, so what can I do to hook Dalton up this week for his recap?” And the man always delivers. He is truly the gift that keeps on giving. And he is about to give again in this next challenge.

The reward competition is a Survivor and creepy-voyeur classic — the slip ‘n’ slide. Contestants race each other one-on-one down a slide and then toss a ring onto a post to get a point. First tribe to three wins. We could talk all about Jeremy beating Savage by half a second or the ladies losing it over Joe rubbing oil all over his body or the Kelly vs. Kelley battle that ultimately gave the competition to Ta Keo, but instead, let’s just focus on Stephen. Or at least the cartoon version of Stephen that appeared to be running down the slip ‘n’ slide course. Seriously, that was not an actual human running, was it? It looked more like the gait of an early-era CGI character whose movements weren’t quite believable when measured against actual, you know, people. I feel bad for comparing Fishbach to the most reviled character in film history, but if you go back and look at it… Holy crap, he runs kind of like Jar Jar Binks! Meesa serious!

And then it gets worse. Which is to say, better. Stephen throws his ring completely over the post, which leads into the unkindest cut of all as producers actually start busting out circus music as Stephen attempts a re-throw that is somehow even more pathetic than the first miss. Circus music. Brutal. When the producers are openly mocking you via musical cues, you know it’s bad.

This causes Jeremy to yell at Stephen, “You got to have confidence in yourself!” Maybe so, but Stephen has transitioned nicely from possible outcast at the start of the season to likeable non-threatening entity who could mount on off-the-radar stealth attack to actually go far in the game. This approach shall hereby be known as “Cochraning.”

NEXT: Andrew Savage miscalculates

Back at the victorious Ta Keo beach, Andrew Savage is loving his new group. He says he is rock solid with both the Angkor folks (Woo and Abi) as well as the original Bayon (Kass and Ciera). That makes five. “I’m not going anywhere,” he proclaims in the jinx of the century. Andrew then targets Spencer, which is a wise move because Spencer is an outsider and is a total threat to win the game. But then things start to get dicey. First Savage goes and tells Kass that “Spencer’s got to go,” and then the five make a pact to get rid of Spencer, as Savage tells Ciera that she will be the pawn whom they tell Spencer is going home.

Huuuuuuuge blunder by Andrew here. Survivor Rule No. 1: Ask instead of tell. What this means basically is this: Instead of telling people whom you want to vote out, ask them who they think should go. This way you allow others to reveal their hands while you keep your cards hidden. That way, if your suggestion would have rubbed someone the wrong way, you are protected in that you never revealed it. Once others come out and say what they are thinking, then you can subtly shift the target by presenting other possible options, but never be the first one to come out and say what should be done.

The second part of this is: Don’t volunteer someone else as the pawn. Instead of telling Ciera she would be the one they all said they were voting for and making her naturally suspicious and uncomfortable, ask everyone whom they think the fake name should be. Or volunteer for it to be you so that others can see how trustworthy you really are. Savage blew it on this one. He dictated instead of allowing others to make what would have likely been the same decision anyway.

Over on Bayon, Joe is being sneaky. He tells Kelley Wentworth that she has work to do to stay alive. Joe wants to keep Kelley with an extra e around so he can maintain numbers with his Ta Keo tribe swap five at the merge. Therefore he targets Kimmi and tells Stephen that she is a liability in challenges. Memo to Joe: Telling someone that has been a liability in challenges that they should get rid of someone else that has been a liability in challenges is probably not the best idea.

So Stephen does exactly what he should do and tells Jeremy, but Jeremy wants to keep Joe around because he is a shield, and Tasha also says it is too much too soon. And this leads to…crying? Yes, crying! Lots of crying! Like, an absurd amount of crying! The waterworks flow as Fishbach explains how upsetting it would be to have his second chance ruined because “I could not get the crew to take the shot we need to take.” At least I think that’s what he says. Honestly, there was so much blubbering going on it was hard to make out the exact words. With that in mind, here is a partial list of other things that make Stephen cry:

  • Tree branches
  • Sling shots
  • Running on slip ‘n’ slides
  • Ring tosses
  • Sitting next to JT at final Tribal Councils
  • Appearing in Dalton Ross recaps

Oh, I kid because I love! But I actually get it. Most of these players have been obsessed with getting another opportunity to play the game. So you finally get back on and you see a potential path to take you to the promised land, but nobody wants to get on board. Throw in a lack of food and lack of sleep, and it is #SurvivorBreakdown time, baby! Still, to see this from Stephen was surprising. In fact, I think the only person more surprised than me to see Stephen bawling like a baby…is Stephen!

We’ll have to wait to see what happens with that plan, but for now let’s go to the immunity challenge, which is a good ol’ fashioned gross-out eating contest. A new twist this time, as there are pairs for the first few rounds before it shifts back to an individual competition. Also, the new rules apparently mandate that every 30 seconds Probst needs to talk about there being “a little bit of guts in there; a little bit of juice.”

NEXT: Welcome to the Vomitorium

Some of the menu items this time around include tarantulas, giant water beetles, pig snouts, and deep-fried frog. The match is tied 2-2 when we get to a Woo and Kimmi battle over pig’s brain. “I haven’t had pig in 30 years,” says Kimmi, as if Probst is going full-Alicia and wagging his finger in her face. “My gift is to let Woo eat some pig brain.” Translation: Kimmi — Survivor’s most famous vegetarian — refuses to eat it.

I actually don’t have a problem with this. This is obviously something Kimmi feels very strongly about, and she shouldn’t have to compromise that for the game. However, if they had lost and her tribemates wanted to vote her out because of it, well, that’s their prerogative as well. As an individual player in what is ultimately an individual game — and you owe nobody else anything — you just have to decide: Is not doing this worth potentially getting voted for? Kimmi decided it was, so if that is where she draws her line, then so be it. I’m not going to kill her for that (but I may have if I was on her tribe and we lost).

After Woo wins to give Ta Keo the 3-2 lead, we move on to scorpion. I have a bit of experience with this one as I tested it out while on location during a press competition against my homies Gordon Holmes and Josh Wigler. I got destroyed. Absolutely blown up. I knew I would too. I’m terrible with food. First off, I’m a super unadventerous eater. Just to give you an idea on that, my lunch today consisted of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, baby carrots, and a yogurt. So, yes, I eat like a 5-year-old.

I also have a super weak stomach. Can’t read on the bus, get nauseous in the back seat of cars, almost hurled in a few different boats in Panama and Cook Islands for Survivor. So, this is definitely not my jam. But here’s the thing: The scorpion wasn’t bad. Not bad at all. It was just super dry and hard to get down. I kept chewing, but it was so dry that I couldn’t get it into small enough pieces where I was comfortable swallowing fast enough. So I got smoked. But it actually was not bad in the least. (The ET Canada guy who looked purple for an hour after trying it may disagree.)

Wentworth beats Ciera at the scorpion so it is on to most infamous of food challenge dishes: balut. I cannot emphasize enough how much balut grosses me out. For those not in the know, balut is a partially formed duck embryo. That means you can see the face and the beak and even taste the feathers. I am honestly concerned I may vomit on this keyboard right now just thinking about it. It makes pig’s snout look like mint chocolate chip ice cream. Balut is my personal Vietnam. Just gnarly.

Tasha takes on Kass, but it’s not even close as Tasha shadow boxes her way to a Bayon victory. (I think Jeremy may have even eaten more balut than Kass did by sneaking a morsel on his way out.) Kass cries as well after the loss but perks up considerably after as she thinks of sending her Survivor nemesis out of the game. “Spencer Bledsoe — 0 percent chance of winning this game,” she calls out in an echo of Spencer’s line about her from the last time they played.

But is that really the case? Back at the beach, Woo tells us that “if all goes according to plan, we’re going to vote Spencer.” This is followed up with Woo’s announcement that “To be here on Ta Keo and be amongst the majority of the alliance feels like I’m finally in tune with this game and I get to play.” Uh-oh. Sounds like Woo just sealed his fate.

NEXT: Spencer lives to play another day…again

As for Spencer, he is psyched for his new alliance partner! “I’ve been wanting to play with Savage the whole time. I just think he’s a really good guy and someone I can trust.” Whoops! Because Savage is still intent on getting rid of Spencer. “This is going to be one of the most devastating unexpected blindsides in the history of Survivor,” Andrews tells us. Nice, Savage. Now you just sealed Woo’s fate. Speaking of which…DOES NOBODY KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS GAME?!? All these guys are completely clueless right now.

What is happening is Ciera is still not digging this pawn business, so she recruits Kass and Abi to keep Spencer and vote out Woo instead. Why Woo and not Savage? Possibly because Abi still wants him out for voting twice for her and possibly because Ciera would rather just fire a shot across original Bayon brother Savage’s bow than deliver a deadly direct hit. So many other questions, though. Why would Kass want to keep nemesis, Spencer? Why would Abi turn on Savage after running to him on Ankgor? And is Fishbach still crying? (Perhaps that last one is less relevant but still worth asking.)

We head to Tribal to see if it will be Calm Kass or Chaos Kass. Is Chaos Kass even on this season? For all the big talk, we haven’t really witnessed her this go-round, and neither has Andrew. “I haven’t seen Choas Kass yet,” he says. “I have seen a loving, loyal Kass” STOP JINXING YOURSELF! “I don’t have doubts about tonight.” SERIOUSLY, THIS IS NOW HARD TO WATCH! STOP IT!

They eventually go up to vote, with Spencer delivering his well-rehearsed “My fate tonight lies in the hands of Chaos Kass… God help me” line — complete with dramatic pause. And it is indeed Woo who is voted out. Bummer for him, but I honestly don’t know if producers would have even had a show had Spencer been sent out. How would they fill all that confessional time? And whom would we hear from during voting?

So two more contestants are now gone. Two nice guys. It didn’t work out for them for drastically different reasons, but the journey ends in both cases. However, your journey has only begun! We have an exclusive deleted scene for you in the video player below, along with my pre-game interviews with Terry and Woo, as well as last week’s edition of Survivor Talk. Plus, make sure to read my weekly Q&A with Hostmaster General Jeff Probst, and come back later for two episodes of Survivor Talk with Terry and Woo. And finally, for an endless stream of Survivor scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.

But now it’s your turn? Did Savage blow it? Did Kass make the right move in ousting Woo instead of Spencer? And should Jeremy and Tasha follow Fishbach’s plan to take out Joe? Hit the message boards to weigh in, and I’ll be back next week with another scoop of the crispy!

Survivor: Cambodia

Season of television series

Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chance is the 31st season of the American CBS competitive reality television series Survivor. Unlike previous seasons, which were completely cast by producers, this season featured 20 returning contestants chosen by an online public vote. The ballot, with the 32 finalists that were considered for this season, was revealed on May 6, 2015, the same day that voting began. The final cast was revealed on May 20, at the reunion of the preceding season. After the reveal occurred, the chosen cast members immediately began the trip to Koh Rong, Cambodia,[1][3] where the season was filmed. The season premiered on September 23, 2015 and concluded on December 16, 2015 when Jeremy Collins was declared the winner over Spencer Bledsoe and Latasha "Tasha" Fox in a unanimous 10–0–0 jury vote.

It is the tenth season to feature returning players, and the third to feature a cast consisting entirely of returning players, after Survivor: All-Stars and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. Though this season was the 31st to air, it was the 32nd to film, after the subsequently-aired Survivor: Kaôh Rōng; the two seasons were filmed back-to-back in the same location.[4]

This season featured several new alterations to the game format. Hidden immunity idols, typically hidden either at tribal camps or Exile Island, were hidden this season at immunity challenges before the merge. Additionally, this season marked the first time the number of regular tribes increased over the course of a season (in this case, from two to three), and the first time the tribes merged with 13 players remaining. It also introduced the vote stealer, in which one player could prohibit another from voting and cast a second ballot in their stead.


According to host and executive producer Jeff Probst, 75 former contestants were initially considered regarding on returning for this season.[5] On Twitter and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Probst revealed that Greg Buis from Survivor: Borneo,[6] Ian Rosenberger from Survivor: Palau, Shannon "Shambo" Waters from Survivor: Samoa,[7] Roberta "R.C." Saint-Amour[8] and Jeff Kent from Survivor: Philippines were contacted to return but all of them declined the offers.[9] Josh Canfield, Reed Kelly, and Jon Misch from Survivor: San Juan del Sur were all contacted, however Canfield and Kelly's Broadway contracts prevented them from being able to play, and Misch missed the call.[10][11][12]

Public vote[edit]

The vote was conducted on the CBS website, and was open to residents of the U.S., Canada (where the show is simulcast on Global), and Australia (where the show airs the following day on Go!). On the website, each candidate was featured in a video displaying a series of clips from their original season followed by a plea to voters as to why they should be selected for Cambodia. Registered voters were required to submit ballots of exactly ten men and ten women, and each voter could only submit a ballot once every 24 hours.[13] This public voting process was similar to one CBS used in 2006 for the first all-star edition of reality program Big Brother.

Voting commenced on May 6, 2015, while the Worlds Apart season of Survivor was still in progress. The ballot consisted entirely of players who had played only once before and had not won; however, two of the candidates from Worlds Apart (Mike Holloway and Carolyn Rivera) had not yet been eliminated from that season when voting began; if either of them were revealed to be that season's winner, they would be deemed ineligible for Cambodia and, if they were among the top ten vote receivers of their gender, their spot would be given to the person on their ballot with the 11th highest vote total. Holloway won Worlds Apart and per Jeff Probst's announcement had finished in the top 10 among male candidates, so the 11th place male candidate joined the cast instead. Probst has since stated that, out of respect for the contestants, there is no intention to reveal the final vote counts or ranks.[14]

  1. ^ abWould later return for Survivor: Game Changers.
  2. ^During the voting process, Holloway had not yet been announced as the winner of Worlds Apart; due to his victory, he was invalidated from Cambodia. As he was in a top 10 vote recipient, his spot was given to the male candidate with the 11th-highest vote total.


Future appearances[edit]

Ciera Eastin and Jeff Varner returned for Survivor: Game Changers. Joe Anglim and Kelley Wentworth returned for Survivor: Edge of Extinction.[15]Jeremy Collins returned to compete on Survivor: Winners at War.

Outside of Survivor, Yung "Woo" Hwang, Wentworth, Collins, and Anglim competed on the premiere of Candy Crush.[16] Abi-Maria Gomes competed with two-time Survivor contestant Sierra Dawn Thomas on a Survivor vs Big Brother episode of Fear Factor.[17]

Season summary[edit]

The 20 returning castaways were initially divided into two tribes of ten: Bayon and Ta Keo. Bayon was led by a core alliance spearheaded by Andrew and Jeremy, the entire tribe promising to stay loyal in the face of upcoming tribe swaps. Throughout the two tribe shuffles, the original Ta Keo tribe fractured while most original Bayon members continued acting in the interest of reforming at the merge. However, some—such as Ciera and Kass—were not as loyal, creating a new alliance on the second Ta Keo tribe. On the third Ta Keo tribe, Ciera and Kass's new alliance came into conflict with Andrew, and they blindsided his ally Woo.

The tribes merged the next day with 13 players remaining, setting Andrew and Jeremy's reformed Bayon alliance against Ciera and Kass's. Though the Bayon alliance initially held the majority, the tribe's large size and multitude of intertwining relationships as a result of the tribe swaps caused the players to eschew long-term alliances in favor of creating temporary voting blocs to get rid of common threats.

While the voting bloc strategy prevailed well into the merge, stable alliances began to form as the numbers dwindled. With seven players remaining, Jeremy formed a majority alliance with Spencer, who had had no consistent allies throughout the game, and original Bayon members Kimmi and Tasha. However, Kimmi later betrayed them to align with outsiders Keith and Kelley. Kimmi was eliminated after the ensuing deadlock tie, and Jeremy, Spencer, and Tasha reached the end of the game together. Ultimately, at the Final Tribal Council, Jeremy was rewarded for his strategic and social dominance throughout the entire game, earning the title of Sole Survivor by a unanimous jury vote.

  1. ^There was no reward challenge due to the tribe switch.
  2. ^ abThis castaway won the hero challenge, earning reward for their entire tribe.
  3. ^There was no reward challenge due to the merge.

  6. ^Due to a deadlocked tie, the non-tied castaways had to come to a consensus decision to vote out either Kimmi or Tasha, or else Keith, the only non-immune deliberating castaway, would be eliminated by default (per rock-draw rules). The non-tied castaways decided to eliminate Kimmi.
  7. ^ abStephen used his vote stealer on Joe, therefore Joe was ineligible to vote whereas Stephen cast two ballots.



The premiere episode was watched by 9.70 million viewers and received a 2.5/8 rating/share in the critical 18–49 demographic. Though the ratings were down from the San Juan del Sur premiere the year before, it ranked first in its timeslot and third for the night, behind Empire and Modern Family.[18] Including three-day DVR figures, the premiere was watched by a total of 11.4 million viewers and scored a 3.1 18–49 rating. The first and second episodes were consistent with the average ratings of the last seven seasons of the show (from One World to Worlds Apart), which averaged 11.5 million viewers and 18–49 ratings between 3.1 and 3.5.[45]

Critical reception[edit]

The season received favorable reviews. Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter reviewed the season positively, saying "The episodes this fall were a reminder of why this show works so well and why you can never rule out Survivor to produce twists and turns that rival what you might find on a Netflix or HBO drama."[65] Dan Heaton of Rob Has a Website gave the finale—and the season—a favorable review, saying,

"This week's very satisfying finale included one of the show's greatest Tribal Councils and barely took a breath in the rush to the finish. Three different players won immunity, tears were shed, and no one backed down. There were no horrible gaffes at the Final Tribal Council, and the jury mostly avoided the bitter route. Kimmi emerged from a quiet edit to nearly dethrone the champ while Keith remained his unique self. Spencer and Tasha made a strategic error by sticking with Jeremy, but both showed real determination throughout the season to make the end. To put it mildly, I enjoyed this season."[66]

Dalton Ross of Entertainment Weekly ranked Cambodia as his sixth-favorite season, only behind Borneo, Micronesia, Heroes vs. Villains, Cagayan, and David vs. Goliath. He stated that despite some confusion with the season's constantly-shifting "voting blocs" and his disappointment with some of the challenges, he found the season appealing due to "how hard the bulk of the cast was playing," while also praising the numerous twists such as the fan-vote, the idols hidden in challenges, the tribe swaps, and the vote-stealing advantage.[67]Caroline Framke of Vox raved the season, saying "The high level of game play in Survivor: Second Chance made a 15-year-old formula feel new again."[68] In 2020, "Purple Rock Podcast" ranked this season 4th out of 40 saying that "the cast is an obvious strength. The gameplay is great as well, with ever-shifting strategies as players jostle for position to make the most of their second shot at the game."[69] Later that same year, Inside Survivor ranked this season 16th out of 40 saying that "what really makes a season is the cast. And best believe this cast plays hard. Voting blocs, alliances, immunity idols, and vote steals, no obstacle is too great for these players who have everything to prove to their fans and themselves."[70] In 2021, Rob Has a Podcast ranked Cambodia 9th during their Survivor All-Time Top 40 Rankings podcast.[71]


On December 15, the day before the live reunion show, one of the season's castaways, Vytas Baskauskas, announced on Twitter that he had been banned from participating in the reunion, simply for leaving Cambodia early following his elimination.[72] Baskauskas was the first person voted out of the game, but rather than remain sequestered from the public for the duration of filming, per the show's protocol,[73] he chose to return to the United States early to be with his infant son. According to Inquisitr, when fans of Survivor read about his ban, many of them were irate that he was being excluded from the reunion show. However, one fan in particular claimed that Baskauskas had committed breach of contract with CBS, by making a post on Instagram during the time period in which the season was filming, thus revealing that he was indeed out of the game at the time and, therefore, potentially spoiling part of the outcome of the season.[74]

Baskauskas defended himself by stating that the social media post in question wasn't a spoiler, since an assistant of his, with access to his Instagram account, was the one who had made that post on his behalf. Baskauskas further claimed that he couldn't have been on social media during that time, since he hadn't even gotten his phone back yet. He also pointed out that there is nothing in the Survivor contract that says that a player's social media account cannot be run by a third party.[74]

Nonetheless, the reunion show went on without Baskauskas, nor was there any on-air acknowledgement of his absence.[75]

9 Things Terry Deitz Wants You To Know Following His Second Chance Exit

Terry Deitz reflects on his Second Chance experience.

Terry Deitz reflects on his Second Chance experience.

At the very start of Episode 6 of Survivor Cambodia, old schooler Terry Deitz was woken up by Jeff Probst in the middle of the night and told of a family medical emergency.

The rest of his tribe then went into shock and offered up warm embraces as he abruptly left the game to be by his sick son's side.

We were able to catch up with Terry and he shared insights about his son's condition since leaving Boston's Children Hospital, what it was like getting a second chance, and what it's like to be part such a tight-knit Survivor family. Read on!

1. What were you thinking the moment Jeff Probst pulled you aside?

1. What were you thinking the moment Jeff Probst pulled you aside?

"I first thought of my elderly mother and mother-in-law as we walked down the beach, and then [I found out] it was my son Danny and he was in the ICU in Boston. It scared the living hell out of me. He had just gotten his driver's license and I thought it was a car crash, so that's kind of where I was instantly.

Jeff Probst couldn't really put anymore detail into it—not until we got out on the boat."

2. How is your son, Danny, doing now?

2. How is your son, Danny, doing now?

"He's doing really well. The new heart's pumpin' like a champ. He's doing physical therapy, walking a couple miles a day, throwing a football once a week or so down with his football guys. [At the] Friday night football games he's gotta stay away from everybody on the sidelines out on the field and wear a mask and all that stuff because his immunity is just kind of gone right now. But he's really doing well and getting back into the swing of things.

Not once has he said, 'Why me?' He's a really strong kid and [it's] inspiring. He's made me a better man."

3. Looking back at your Second Chance run, there anything you would have done differently?

3. Looking back at your Second Chance run, there anything you would have done differently?

"It's weird. I don't have a lot of 20/20 hindsight, like last time. Would I have done anything differently? I probably would have been less over-confident with that first vote, thinking that our group had the numbers. That's what I would have done." 

4. What would you consider your best Second Chance success?

4. What would you consider your best Second Chance success?

"On the boat back, Dr. Eliza and Jeff go, 'So, Terry, I know you really don't want to talk about the game much, but you said you were gonna do two things when you came out here: prove yourself in the challenges and develop social or strategic game, and, in two weeks, you did both of the things you came here to do.' And I was like, 'Woah.'

Yeah, I proved myself in challenges. I did okay. And, arguably, in the first two Tribal Councils, we had the biggest strategic move of the game that I was part of and I got myself off the bottom. So that was probably the biggest thing."

5. What does Survivor mean to you?

5. What does Survivor mean to you?

"This Second Chance, in particular, I think will always—not only with me and other people—end up being about my son getting a second chance at life. That's the overall picture. 

Survivor itself is probably one of the coolest things I've done in my life. It's meant a lot to me. It's taught me a lot of things about myself and introduced me to some wonderful people.

To be honest with you, how wonderful that whole Survivor team and the whole Survivor family has really come to light because of this. People from all over the globe are calling, texting, and emailing me. I can't tell you how much support those guys have given us through this whole ordeal. It is a Survivor family."

6. Which castaway could you picture winning the title this time around?

6. Which castaway could you picture winning the title this time around?

"Kelley Wentworth has been playing a really good game, so far. She kinda keeps getting put in places she's gotta dig out of, but she's working it really well. She came back to prove that she alone could win Survivor and she's working hard at it. She's the kind of woman that, when she sets her mind to it, she will get what she wants.

Abi-Maria Gomes could possibly go a long way. I think Tasha Fox is playing pretty good. I think Jeremy Collins is playing a good game and as evidenced last night, he's kind of keeping some people in line. Even Stephen Fishbach is getting a little antsy and [Jeremy's] like, 'Dude, chill out.'"

7. How would you compare your first day on your first season to the first day on your second season?

7. How would you compare your first day on your first season to the first day on your second season?

"[They're] night and day. I was very confident in who we had on board and that made me feel good, but the night part of it was watching some of the other people flit around.

They're playing the game different these days with more of that Big Brother social strategic stuff. There's not the Survivor part of it."


8. Given the chance, would you play Survivor a third time?

8. Given the chance, would you play Survivor a third time?

"Yeah, and that all depends on my son's health and where I am in my flying career. It's all timing. 

Like, this one, for instance, sort of came up short notice. Had Danny gotten sick a month earlier, none of this would have happened. 

So, given that the timing was right, yes, I would go back."

9. Any final thoughts on the game and what you'll do next?

9. Any final thoughts on the game and what you'll do next?

"I hope to see my fans on one of my airplanes flying around the country or flying around the world. I'm actually flying to Milan tonight, so maybe I'll see somebody who watched me on TV last night. Who knows? That's always fun.

Survivorcontinues to amaze me. People that were on this show, again, they're family. It just goes to say that it is a game, but people realize there's a family behind it."

Here is a goat, he definitely was on these whores, he fucked. And therefore does not want me, well, he will wake up, I will show him, she mused aloud. And what will I show, because, in fact, I was also on whores. They fried it with a finger, pushed the tip into the ass, almost broke it, shoved the same thing on the pussy, what else was needed.

I looked for an object resembling a member in shape, and found this one Candle. Two centimeters in diameter, twenty in length it was a find. Going into the bathroom and smearing the candle with Vaseline, I, beating with fear that I was doing something unlawful, I bent down and inserted. It into my ass.
