Man Eliza is getting beaned all over the place. LOL

pickles said...

Wow... What a physical chalange. I thought the fans had it there for a minute.

joy n said...

That was a pretty nasty food comp.

Delee said...

That sure was a physical reward challenge. I wonder how long it really took for it to play out?

joy n said...

Maybe Kathy doesn't want to help Ami with the clues because she or Cerie already have the idol.

Donna in AL said...

I think you are right, joy

joy n said...

Fans won that comp by default, really. Faves coconut net was so heavy, they dropped the lines under the sheer weight of it. Fans net didn't look as full.

Donna in AL said...

Is there some way to comment and not have to do the word verification every time?

joy n said...

It appears Parvati is turning James' head. She wants Yao-man out. Don't do it James!

No you have to type it, unless Jackie turns it off and she rarely does. It discourages the nasty's from spamming the site!

joy n said...

Cirie's playing the same way as always. Dangerous to play when they don't need her vote next time.

Donna in AL said...

Thanks anon. Some of them are so long, but I had rather keep the nastys out.

Donna in AL said...

I don't think Cerie should have spoken up so soon in the game. She should have just laid back like she did last time.

monty924 said...

Poor Yau's probably going home tonight!

monty924 said...

Say it isn't so!!!

Delee said...

No not Yau Man!!! Should have been Cherie

Clementine said...

Bummer

joy n said...

?#$%^@>? They voted out Yau-Man! I hope Cirie's butt goes next.

monty924 said...

Cirie's holding a heck of a lot of power now. Who would have thunk it??????????

Sydney said...

*&##$! A collective groan sweeps across america as Yau goes. Jonathan could have used the tribal council to further his plan to hope their team splits their vote while his team all votes for Pavarti.... and he didn't.

And even so, WTF was the vote from his side for Cerie? Wasn't that from his side? The blonde woman...forgot her name.

Oh, and did anyone else notice when James was trying to hold up the coconuts, he stuck out his tongue... and it's pierced?

Sydney said...

Ami that's who voted Cerie

joy n said...

If ever there was a time for Karma to appear, I hope it's next Thursday and it has Cirie's name on it!

Petals said...

I love Yao! How could they send him home?

Anonymous said...

anyone know who got voted off ameircan idol tonite??? LOL thanks

Terry in CA said...

Cirie is no longer a good person to me....I loved Yau...bummer, total bummer.

Clementine said...

Voted off AI:

Joanne ("Say A Little Prayer'")
Amy ("Where The Boys Are")

Colton ("Suspicious Minds")
Garrett ("Breaking Up Is Hard To Do")

Anonymous said...

thank u so much!!

Donna in AL said...

Four got voted off AI tonight?

Clementine said...

Yes, I think it's 4 voted off each week for 3 weeks and then it will be Final 12 starting on March 12th.

Brent McKee said...

How on Earth does Cirie manage to get and hold power and then use it in such horribly thought out ways. In her season she persuaded her team to get rid of the best provider first because she "didn't bond with them." This time she got rid of Yau Man the challenge machine because he's too good at challenges. Both times she should have been out before the people she got rid of. If Jonathon had been smart he would have gone after Cirie (he might have been able to get James on that one), but hey, this is Jonathon we're talking about

sharon said...

Didn't get to see the guys on AI,but Joanne got a raw deal,the Goth rocker chick should have gotten the ax.Amy was a right call,she was the worst,by far.

What is it that creep,Cirie, has that makes people follow her every whim? She does nothing around camp,is not strong in the comps and thinks everybody should be washing her feet and carrying her around on a pedestal!!! Yikes!! And now poor Yau is gone. If I had been Jonathon I would have rallied everyone to vote her butt off and then gone after Pavarti.We'll miss you,Yau-Man!

For some reason my tivo didn't record the first half hour of survivor. It was said that Parviti and James are sleeping together, what did I miss? I know Ozzy and Amanda (I think) were kissing last week, did they get it on, as Cirie said Jungle love or sex, can't remember.

Yes, I did see that James has his tongue pierced. That just turned my stomach, and he's no longer a hottie in my book!

lynn1 said...

I am really sorry that Yau man is gone.
I don't understand Cire's logic/strategy at this stage of the game.
The next time the Favs go to tribal council I hope Cire has a crash and burn experience.
She is definitely on my "needs to go home" list.

Jackie, I hope you are feeling better soon.

I liked Yau Man but this is a game and Cirie is playing the game that she feel will benefit her. People maynot see that sitting at home, but just like everybody else on the show make moves they feel is going to work for them that is what Cirie was doing. Unfortunately Yau Man got the worst end of the stick. I do not see where Karma is needed. She is playing the game for works for her or least what she think will work for her. How can anybody fault her that. That was the game is about play the game for your benefit.

meb said...

But Nana126...yes, play the game that will benefit you the most, but how did this benefit Cerie... she is now #5 of her current alliance, and next time at tribal council for the favs could get her sent home. If she had voted Parvati off first (or any one of that 4-some, then that group would have been reduced to 3-strong. Then she would have had some leverage to work with the others to get rid of those strong players...Ozzie/James. She blew it big time. Yau-man was no threat to her yet.

Caroline said...

Personally I think it was really rotten of Eric to smack Eliza in the head with that bag. I hope he feels like a big man after that, especially taking on the smallest girl of both teams combined. Yeah, he's a real man. I don't even like Eliza very much, but that was uncalled for. It wasn't in the context of play, he had already gotten the bag in his endzone and she had already let go of him. It's just too bad that James didn't rip that slimeball apart. I really thought the way James went after Eric that he was just going to crush him in his fists. It would have been deserving.

lynn1 said...

Nana126,
I agree with some of what you said.
Everyone should play and make choices that are of benefit to themselves.
At this point in the game it is team against team not player against player.
It is just my opinion that at this point in the game players should be concerned with keeping the better players on their team so they can win reward and immunity challenges.
I feel that Yau man was one of the better players and more of an asset to the team than some of the other players.
I think at this point in the game Yauman was more of an asset even to Cire than a threat.
I think once the game changes to individual rewards and immunity challenges then Yau Man would be a major threat to all the players.
While Karma may not have any bearing, I believe enough people in each alliance on the Favs team were resistant to sending Yau man home that if things don't go well for the Favs in the next 2 or 3 immunitiy challenges that Cire has set herself up to be targeted.
I don't dislike Cire but I think she made a bad choice in sending Yau man home at this time.
The way the show is edited showing Cire in a bad light influenced me to think that I would prefer to see Cire go home next rather than any of the other Favs team members.
If I fault Cire with any thing it is that she did not listen to all the players on her team. If she had it would have become apparent to her that the majority of her team wished to keep Yauman on board for a while longer.

joy n said...

The only thing that makes sense is that Cerie feels that if she gets rid of the popular players long before the end of the game, that, aomehow, she will have a chance to win. If she only has to go against weak ones (she doesn't consider herself weak) and unlikable ones in the final four, then she figures she could very possibly win. Yau-man being probably the most popular of all, this would make sense. It was her best chance to do so this week since she was the "deciding vote".

Trouble is, it'll never work. The faves will only keep her long enough to get what they need of her (her vote) and then they will cut her free. Since she's so lousy at comps, I don't think she'll last all that long. Jonathan will really be gunning for her now.

Cerie believes she's playing a smart game, but she's not.

Zoetawny said...

ITA, I'm not happy Yau-Man is out.
Where did Cirie get that queen bee attitude? It's not flattering in the least.

joy n...

I hope you're right about Cirie's butt having Karma all over it. ;)

Feel better, Jackie!

I've been meaning to tell you that I saw Michael C. Hall ("Dexter") in an older Ben Afflec movie, "Paycheck" last weekend. It was just a small role but it looks like he's climbing the ladder of fame with his own show now. Of course "Six Feet Under" was his big break.

Cirie made a pack with Parvati and Amanda that they would have each other backs up to the final 3. Since Parvati and Amanda is trying to keep two strong men in their corner. She probably feel like they still had the strength in the game. She felt threaten by Yau Man going over to Exile island and finding the idol. I don't think she was looking at the challenges which could be a bad decision on her part. She took out the strongest in the Yau Man alliances. I am not saying she made the best decision but she is playing the game to what she think is going to work for her. I still see no reason for Karma she is doing her thing just like everybody else doing they thing even if it do not make sense.
Nana126

meb said...

OK Nana126, I'll give you that she's playing the game, even tho it doesn't make any sense.

And I don't think her alliance with Amanda and Parvati will last to the end. But who knows. Some where it was hinted that there are a few blind-sided tribal councils. Maybe it's the three of them getting rid of James and Ozzie. Now that would be good game playing.

Caroline said...

In an exit interview with Yau-Man he stated that all the Favorites wanted to go to Exile Island, so they were taking turns. Cirie went first, came back and only told them things Kathy said about her tribe. Then Ami went, but when she came back she told them what the 3 clues she found were. Yau-Man was next set to go to Exile Island. He's under the impression that's why Cirie wanted him gone so badly, she didn't want him to have a chance to search for the Immunity Idol and she knew it was imminent.

If this is true, this makes it a much more strategical move on Cirie's part and explains her adamant stance on Yau-Man being the next to go. She was not willing to send Eliza next, then Yau-Man because she knew by that time he'd have already gone to Exile Island. This also means, most likely, Cirie did not find the Idol. Definitely some points to think about.
