Survivor One World Episode 13 Recap: Lies and Betrayal

Welcome to Survivor: One World finale week! Only two episodes remain and the tension is definitely reaching critical mass among the remaining survivors. Last week on Survivor 2012, viewers watched as the women’s alliance finally cracked and Kat was sent packing at Tribal Council while Tarzan — against huge odds — continued to hang on yet another week.

Only six castaways remain to battle it out Wednesday night for a chance to make it into the Survivor: One World finale. Will this week finally be the last call for the final guy left remaining on Survivor 2012? Or will Tarzan manage to sneak through again while the women are too busy stabbing each other in the back?


This post contains Survivor: One World spoilers about Wednesday night’s episode. Please stop here if you do not want to know what happened on episode 13 of Survivor 2012. You have been warned.

CBS is promising this week’s second-to-last Survivor: One World episode will feature plenty of drama, lies and betrayal and we can’t wait to see it! Here’s the official CBS synopsis for Survivor: One World episode 13 to ponder while we wait impatiently to see who was voted off Survivor 2012 this week:

An unlikely betrayal within an alliance puts one castaway on the defense, while another tribe member concocts an elaborate story to gain an advantage in the game, on SURVIVOR: ONE WORLD, Wednesday, May 9 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Now let’s see if Survivor: One World episode 13 actually lives up to the hype CBS is promising for this week in our Survivor 2012 live recap!

The ladies kick off with a discussion about how pissed off Kat probably is for getting voted off Survivor: One World last week. Tarzan is actually quite surprised. If it had been him he would have absolutely not done that. Tarzan decides he will try to get Lisa on his side to get himself into the final four and tells her they should work to get out Chelsea. Alicia also meets with Tarzan and asks him if he thinks he can beat Lisa. Tarzan doesn’t mind playing any side he can if it will get him into the finals.

Chelsea thinks nothing can come between her and Kim. She is worried about Tarzan though and doesn’t want him in the final three because all the men will probably vote for him just because they are pissed at the women.

Reward Challenge:

The castaways have to spin disks on platforms to remove them and then use them as decoder rings to solve a puzzle. The winner will get to go on a yacht, shower, get clean clothes and have a three course meal and an overnight sleep.

Chelsea wins the reward challenge and selects Sabrina and Kim to go with her. Tarzan, Alicia and Christina are left in camp to plot.

Back at camp, Alicia, Christina and Tarzan go over the reward challenge and consider who Chelsea decided to take with her. Alicia is beginning to think about Tarzan’s words. Kim realizes Tarzan is getting to Alicia and decides she has to turn that around fast. She talkes Alicia around by trying to convince her Tarzan is playing all sides.

Immunity Challenge:

Alicia manages to be pull off a win in the Immunity Challenge, ensuring her place in the final five.

Back at camp there is a free for all with everyone conspiring and trying to manipulate each other. In the end, however, it looks like the majority have come to a decision on who to vote off.

Tribal Council Votes:


Who Was Voted Off Survivor: One World

The 13th person voted off is Tarzan and he becomes the 7th member of the jury.

  1. I am a Survivor fan since the first episode. Richard H, his nudity (like or not-put me down for NOT) to One World now showing. I’m going out on a limb here (pun intended) & picking the most popular vote – Kim. She has played the game flawlessly which sometimes bites u in the ass. Good Luck..

  2. Kim would be the only smart vote…i mean look at the other competitors…….just pathetic! Too bad Russel didnt win. Kim is playing the same way and just look she will win.

  3. Agree with Redrick, this is the worst season. I am hoping the episodes would get better, but they are not. One or two smart ones and the rest are just not smart at all
