Survivor Worlds Apart - Episode 2 Recap
It Will Be My Revenge

Nina talks to Will about how left out she feels. I have to say this has nothing to do with her hearing. It's about her age. A couple young 20s girls decide to go skinny dipping in the ocean...they just don't think to ask the 50-year-old lady to go with them. They just don't. As far as Survivor drama goes, this barely makes a blip on the radar. I'm assuming it'll mean something down the road, but right now it's time to move on.
We come back from break to the Blue Collar tribe. Mike apparently never sits still, so he's driving everyone else to work hard, too. But they do take some time to play coconut basketball. Mike tells us it's frustrating to him to see people not working as hard as he does. He is not making friends. Boston Rod is done with Mike and says he's painting a huge target on his back.
Over at No Collar, Joe is back with a bag full of crabs. Vince is still on the hunt. Nina comes out to join him and he tells her about how his hard work goes unnoticed, while everything Joe does is major. He wants some acknowledgement. I'm pretty sure this dude is the neediest player in the history of Survivor. Vince decides to confront Joe in front of everyone, asking him to acknowledge that he steamrolls everything on the tribe. Joe tells us that he doesn't totally know what's going on with Vince, but he is pretty well done with him.
We then see Nina making a pact with Vince, saying she's with him and Will all the way. She says the others judged her based on her deafness from the beginning. I thought I covered that a couple paragraphs ago. Anyway, Joe and the younger girls are really getting worried about Vince and what he may do. Joe warns the girls not to underestimate Vince. Joe thinks he's smarter than he comes across. Jenn worries that Vince will do something to destroy the tribe.
We come back from break to a Probst sighting and right off the bat, I can't help but notice they have some sort of basketball thing set up. This is perfect for how Blue Collar has been spending their days. This challenge will have people diving into the water to grab buoys. They'll maneuver them along a rope through a course and then have to shoot baskets with five balls. First two tribes to finish win immunity and reward.
First place reward is a massive fishing kit. Second place is a smaller fishing set. Blue and No Collar need to sit someone out. Surprisingly, Dan wants to play and Kelly sits out for the Blues. Nina sits for the Nos. The first round is Vince, Dan and Tyler. Surprisingly, Dan makes it to the end first to start the second round for Blue Collar. Through the challenge, No Collar leads by a little bit while White Collar trails by just a little. Will really slows down the NO Collars and Lindsey passes him to take the lead. Will has gotten so tangled that Joaquin takes off for White Collar, leaving No Collar in the dust. Joe is just chomping at the bit to get in the water. Finally, Joe gets to play.
