Survivor 44 Episode 3 – Sneaky Little Snake -Showmance Bliss
Survivor 44 Episode 3 – Show no interest in participating and see what happens
Since last night’s Survivor 44 Episode 3 was rather forgettable again, nothing really stood out to me, unlike the premiere of Survivor. The showmance between Matt and Frannie continues to grow even stronger. Due to their social partnership, Matt and Frannie continued to exclude themselves from the other four players. We all know what happens to this kind of relationship on Survivor and I’m surprised it’s still going on at this point.
This continued to be a “huge liability” in Claire’s eyes, and Danny saw it as a chance to divert all attention away from himself. He already had their birdcage idol in his possession, so he only needed to carry out a plan to leave the dummy idol it came with for someone else to discover. Danny hid the cage key again after successfully retrieving the phony idol, allowing someone else to claim it. Which was a boss move and Matt ended up falling for it.
Survivor 44 Episode 3 Immunity Challenge
The three tribes competed in an obstacle course that ran from the water to the beach and ended with a block puzzle on Survivor 44 Episode 3. For the third time in a row, Soka decided to bench Claire (along with Heidi), and Ratu benched Lauren for the same reason. The prizes for the first tribe to complete the challenge were a toolset and a sizable basket of fruit, while the prizes for the second tribe were a smaller toolset and a smaller basket of fruit. The tribe that does not complete the game forfeits their flint and goes before the tribal council to vote the next player out of the game.
In the challenge’s water portion, Ratu quickly took the lead before being followed by Soka and Tika, who fell behind quickly. All three tribes eventually achieved parity in the puzzle. When it came to solving the puzzle for the Ratu team, Kane, and Matthew were far ahead of the other two tribes and were the first to do so winning the Survivor 44 Episode 3 immunity challenge.
Tika had two of their four blocks stacked at this point while Soka had none of their four blocks stacked. Both tribes made the decision to dispatch individuals to the finished Ratu puzzle in order to “copycat” the right response in their own stack. For Tika, Yam Yam, and Carson completed this task more quickly than Matt and Frannie did for Soka, giving Tika the second immunity and preventing one of their tribe’s four members from being eliminated.
Who ended up on the chopping block – Who would you vote for – Poll
To ensure the survival of their tribe, Danny and Josh talked about dividing the votes between Claire, who was their target, and Matt, who was a ruse. Heidi and Frannie were informed of that plan as well. Josh decided to follow everyone else’s lead even though he didn’t necessarily want to vote Claire out. He also didn’t want to upset the status quo.
Because Frannie didn’t want to send Claire home, she launched an effort to sway Claire away from Matt and toward Josh. She argued that Josh couldn’t be as trustworthy as Matt. Matt and Frannie informed Claire that Josh and Danny were after her in order to win her over. The three of them understood that Matt couldn’t vote, so in order to remove Josh from the game, they would also need Heidi’s vote.
The one who approached Heidi with the idea was Claire, but Heidi made it clear to Claire that she wasn’t certain of her intended course of action. Claire was aware that Heidi was avoiding her, so she might have to use her Shot in the Dark at Tribal Council. Heidi didn’t want to make a decision without being in agreement with her because she felt that Danny was her top priority. Despite her admission that her strategic relationship with Josh is “not that great,” she was worried that they would lose out on Josh’s challenge strength over Claire, who hasn’t yet competed, AT ALL.
So it ended up being Clair, Matt, and Josh’s names being thrown down onto the Survivor 44 Episode 3 chopping block. Who were you going to vote for?
Who Got Voted Out of Survivor 44 Episode 2?
The tribe has spoken and Claire Rafson was the third cast member to get voted out of Survivor 44 episode 3.
Hometown: Highland Park, Ill.Current
Residence: Brooklyn, N.Y.
Occupation: Tech Investor
Three Words to Describe You: Energetic, motivated, cunning
Survivor has been my dream since I was four years old. Survivor has been the most consistent and motivating thing for me and changed the way I approach the world. I’ve been playing Survivor my whole life… why not try it in the ultimate arena?Claire Rafson
I think Claire must have gotten a lot of Participation trophies in her life because all she did was sit on the sidelines at all of the challenges. Not once did she speak up and say that she would like to take part in a challenge and actually play. This made it easy for the rest of the tribe to vote her off because she didn’t show them anything to prove that she is a valuable player.

During the closing credits where Claire said that she was outplayed, LOL! How would that even be possible when she didn’t even play at all?
