Survivor Gabon - 10/02 Show

jackie's tv blog, survivor

Okay, Survivor fans and those in the pool ... the show has started here on the East Coast. I won't be live-blogging it per se, but I will update this on and off with important events and/or some thoughts of mine. As always, everyone is welcome to chat it up in comments!

Wow, that rewards challenge was brutal ... and Fang actually won! They're sending Sugar to Exile Island.

That seems to be the wrong choice ... she's found four clues and has it!

Yikes, Fang won Immunity!

Paloma is out, Sugar didn't use her (and Ace's evidently) idol.

That guy's such a charmer, NOT!

Sydney said...

What is his name, the 49 year old complainer negative wedding videographer. I am not so hot on him

monty924 said...

Randy

nancy in nj said...

trying to get a glimpse of the good drs "baggage" i've read so much about.......must admit though..went back over the first show....couldn't see much....LITERALLY...didn't see MUCH.....

Anonymous said...

Hey all,
I was on vacation last week but did get a chance to check out Survivor. Have to admit, when I got home and saw which survivor was my pick-- Matty Whitmore--I didn't remember him! Which I am taking as a good sign that he may last a while since he didn't stand out yet. Good Luck to everyone tonight.

Clementine said...

Go Go Kenny! Your romantic crush is gone, now let's play SMART!

nancy in nj said...

randy gets on my nerves too

Sydney said...

My husband said he's Randy. Me too Nancy -- they have the clip on TMZ but it's digitized out. I have it on Tivo but am not sure I care enough to find it, lol

nancy in nj said...

i think michelle got a raw deal with the tribe she got stuck in

Petals said...

wooHOO! Got on my bathin' suit for the Survivor pool!

Sydney said...

Hey! A baby hippo! Don't see that everyday

Anonymous said...

I got it on Jackie's TV Squad--instead of thinking banana--I think we should be thinking "pencil"

RJM in SC

Petals said...

Eloquent Randy is from Missouri, right? My homey!

nancy in nj said...

do randys eyes look a bit odd to you?

Petals said...

Oh no! Someone on this show has a rumored "largess"? Not another reality show crotch watch!? hahahahaha

Sydney said...

C'mon in Petals, the water's fiiiiine.


Is your suit leopard like Sugars? I know you don't love her but I do love her leopard outfits

monty924 said...

Looks like Fang is going down the same path tonight. ugh

Randy, lay off my GC!

Sydney said...

Speaking of leopards, there is a shot of one! And I was feeding them all morning at the zoo today....

nancy in nj said...

PENCIL!!!! LOL hahahahahaha

nancy in nj said...

PENCIL!!!! LOL hahahahahaha

Petals said...

Syd - since finding out that I am assigned to Miss Sugar, I've grown a slight fondness for her open Betty Page-esque manner.

nancy in nj said...

i'm ace....and i'm getting on my nerves

Sydney said...

Can I just say that I'm so HAPPY that it's that Survivor time of year? woo weeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Petals said...

Nancy - haha! Getting on your own nerves. I'm Sugar, and I'm sweet on myself!

Petals said...

There are some cute boys this season...

Sydney said...

I thought you might come to like that in her. I know I do. However, I don't like that Project Runway chick who has a different version of the same thing.

Petals said...

Charlie is loving this!

monty924 said...

GC's weak man DAN game isn't working. ugh

Petals said...

RE: the crotch watch: I think Crystal may have the biggest package...

nancy in nj said...

ugh i could NEVER do this show...hate bugs, camping, need hot showers, toilets and a place to put tampax......and physically?? OH GOSH....i fear i would have been beat by gillian

Delee said...

My goodness...Bob is emaciated already

monty924 said...

Paloma looked like a rag doll.

Sydney said...

Boy, this is so harsh, I think you could make some enemies handling ppl they way they are. But I'm glad Fang got one

GO MY GIRL CHRYSTAL!!!!!!!!!!!

Sydney said...

It's all that youga Ace does, he has Zen grip

Petals said...

Bob is awesome!

Sydney said...

go chrystal!

joy n said...

Dan is the man! GO Fang!

That was brutal!

Sydney said...

Yes! Humble that Ace!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah Chrystal sister!

Petals said...

I'm going to Exile...see you guys in a lil while.

nancy in nj said...

which male species carriest the proudest attire? sorry jackie, but it aint the doc. hopefully..hes got the brains

ooohhhhh sorry sugar....find the idol!

Sydney said...

I know, I love Bob, and that was a nice comeback from Sugar.

monty924 said...

Wow, I've never rooted so hard for a Survivor team to win. That challenge was awesome.

And, Sugar goes to exile. What will she pick, the clue or the apple? I say the clue and she finds it, the idol. Just guessing.

Laurie said...

I'm in my teeny-weeny bikini and jumping in the pool feet first. Funny thing, it's still warm enough here in San Diego to be in a pool.

Sydney, how's our Olympic gal doing tonight?

I had to laugh at the order of these next postings.

Petals said: "wooHOO! Got on my bathin' suit for the Survivor pool!"

Very next post, Sydney said: "Hey! A baby hippo! Don't see that everyday."

I nearly spit out my iced tea on that one. Timing is everything.

nancy in nj said...

i'm such a woos....i'd be begging to be thrown off

Sydney said...

Joy -- do you have Dan?

Sydney said...

Oh, thanks Monty for Randy's name

monty924 said...

Delee said...
My goodness...Bob is emaciated already
**********

My mom agrees. She said she felt sorry for the guy who's ribs were sticking out.

Delee said...

HAHA Laurie...good ones.
I know I saw the baby and went ahhh too.

Sydney said...

lol RJM re:the package/baggage/ banana

nancy in nj said...

how many camera men do you think are with sugar? like, i'd be freakin out to be there alone

joy n said...

Sydney, yes, Terry in CA and I share Dan.

Sydney said...

I/m so glad they finally won something. I have no faves in terms of tribe yet, btu I hate it when only one team always wins as a viewer.....

Sydney said...

Ace is somehow making everyone think that was all good? Boy, he's good.

monty924 said...

Paloma agrees with me... heh

nancy in nj said...

the scenery is gorgeous!!

go sugar!!!

Petals said...

Ants love sugar. THey're sweet onher. Oh, and SO IS ACE, in case you guys havent noticed. He hangs all over us!

Delee said...

I am sure all are surrounded by armed guards and tribal people. Plus I am sure they are not near well-travelled animal trails.

Poor Sugar and the ants...yuck!

Clementine said...

Okay, because apparently I'm the porn queen of this blog who always knows where to find the naked people (what does that say about me??), I have here a little video for you all that wanted a good view of Marcus. It's slow-mo and set to some hysterical music!

WARNING: it's posted on a website that features links to gay porn and some questionable language. If that offends you, don't go there!

Just put your hand up to block the left side of your screen and scroll quickly down to the first video (with the little picture of the devil) :)

nakedstraightguys.com

Enjoy!

Petals said...

Watch out guys... we're gonna get the idol!

monty924 said...

Our first tears from Sugar. Why don't they just swim across the lake.... nevermind, she found the crater.

Delee said...

LOL Clementine can not wait to see it as I did not see anything on the others.

Petals said...

WOOOOHOOOO!!!!! Victory is SWEET as SUGAR!

monty924 said...

Hey Petal's, your gals got Moxy.

Yes, she found it and I called it first, lol. ;)

Melissa said...

ok, where the hek did the leopard dress come from?????

Delee said...

WTG Sugar Team

nancy in nj said...

way to go sugar!!!!!

Sydney said...

Somehow I knew she'd find the idol... question is, says my husband, will she go back and tell ACe?

Sydney said...

Melissa, she wore it to Africa

Melissa said...

right but in the search for the idol, it seemes like she had 2 sets of clothes on.

Delee said...

Lets just hope she plays it when she SHOULD play it.

monty924 said...

Good question Sydney's hubby.

joy n said...

Dan is my poolboy lawyer (or half of him is) and I have to say I'm embarrassed for him not finding the idol last week when Sugar just made it look easy. She deserves the idol.

Good call, Monty!

nancy in nj said...

clementine...pmp laughing at your post giving us the naked truth....will prob check out site during vp debate....

Gayle said...

Yay Petals! Our person to root for, Sugar found the immunity idol, hopefully she will be in the game for awhile.

monty924 said...

Did they say Slip and Slide... I'm in!

nancy in nj said...

leopard swimsuits!! here we go!!

Sydney said...

fun and new -- the slippy slide!

nancy in nj said...

sugar is just a little betty boop!!

Sydney said...

Chrystal -- I guess if you can win a medal running it doesn't mean you excel at all things physical

Laurie said...

Clementine, I checked out the video and laughed ... the music is so perfect for it. Thanks PQ!

Clementine said...

That is one AWESOME slide!!!

nancy in nj said...

this challenge is awesome!!

nancy in nj said...

this challenge is awesome!!

Petals said...

I don't wanna, but I need to take a blog break and attend to a real life wild creature (hehe). Later peeps! Go Sugar!

Lemme know status on the Crotch Watch.

Delee said...

Dang Marcus's suit stayed on LOL

Sydney said...

Ace is good physically, is he our new Ozzy??

Nancy in nj said...

UGH i'm such a show off!! i Loathe MYSELF!!

Sydney said...

C/mon mr. gamer, the pressure's on. Though I love BOB and want to marry him

He reminds me of Bill Nye the Science guy, who I also wanted to marry

monty924 said...

Woohooooo FANG won it!

Sydney said...

Oh Bob -- he looks so shell shocked. They better not say he's weak where he should have been strongest and vote him out!!!!!!!!

nancy in nj said...

WOW!!! kota heads to tc??

joy n said...

Dan made up for a lot today in the rewards challenge and Ken did well for Fang in this one.

Delee said...

Great challenge had a bit of everything

Clementine said...

Yea, Kenny! Good job!

(from me and Txrednekgirl)

monty924 said...

Well we know Corrine (sp) wants Paloma or Sugar out... will we see the idol tonight? hmmmm

Delee said...

No fang goes to TC

nancy in nj said...

as for CW......i'm guessing bob isn't too well endowed. still trying to study ace and matt

monty924 said...

I second that. I think that was my favorite Survivor challenge ever. Who can resist a Slip-n-slide. I loved it and my man GC is safe another day.

Delee said...

Drats forgot Ugly Betty was on to Tivo it

Clementine said...

Argh! Nancy, please stop checking out Bob's crotch, immediately!!!!!

Sydney said...

dumb move to tell ACE?

Delee said...

Sugar playing dumb, but now telling Ace...that is dumb

monty924 said...

Hubby called it, Sydney!

Sydney said...

altho it looks like he may be true to her?

nancy in nj said...

uuuppp...there she goes telling ace....

Delee said...

Give me a croc any day but a spider shiver!!!!

Delee said...

Could there be a blindside???

Sydney said...

hmmm, getting interesting!

Delee said...

WOW I thought Kota won...how did I miss that?

nancy in nj said...

ace has nice eyes

Sydney said...

Delee- I forgot to do Ugly Betty too!

Sydney said...

I'd like to see Paloma go

Sydney said...

With the first vote paloma I am suspicous it's not her.

Sydney said...

Ace is hopeful

Delee said...

And the 3rd person voted out is
Paloma....


Zoetawny are girl is still in!!!

joy n said...

Bye, Paloma. Sorry, Tessa.

Sydney said...

oh Ace, don't smile. Well, now he isn't so maybe that was editing.

nancy in nj said...

sydney...bill nye science guy???? oh my.......

whew!! missed it by the skin of my...head

Sydney said...

Wow -- did you see Bob sitting there when Jeff was talking? He looked like the living dead. Like he had "Thriller" make up on

Gayle said...

Tessa your girl Paloma got voted out! Yay Petals - Sugar made it another day!

nancy in nj said...

mark, that was a bit dramatic...i don't think kota has been on a downward slide......pleaSE.....

monty924 said...

That was a great episode. More editing designed to make you think Ace was going home.

Sydney said...

Nancy's on banans patrol.

Glad you're still in the game girrrrl (as Ace)

In other news,, anybody want to stay on to live blog the debates?? :-P

Delee said...

nancy in nj said...

sydney...i'm watching debate...

Gayle said...

Sydney, I think the debates are going to be rough!

nancy in nj said...

i'm dissapointed sarah wore so much black

nancy nj said...

she always sounds like she comes from chicago (don't take offense..i love that mid-western accent)

this could get nasty

Sydney said...

Hi Nancy--!

Sydney said...

The woman who is questioning these two VP's is writing a favorable book about Obama and it drops tomorrow.

OK, as a stylist I will say Palin's outfit is terriffic and fits her like a dream, but I think it;'s a little too tight for the office. Hair got highlighted with just a little gold, blonde, after lightening the base to a more chestnutty color. Make up is fab. And they may have added a little hairpiece in the back.

Byden, nice tie, matches his eyes.

Ok, I'm trying to stay away from the politics, lol.

Gayle said...

I live in Chicago and she always sounds like she's talking in circles and saying NOTHING! Just like some fast talking slicksters I know in Chicago! They tell little friendly stories to get you off your guard and NEVER get to the point or answer the question.

Sydney said...

HI Gayle --

Palin is sounding very confident again. It would have been painful to see that Couric interview Palin in this hour. Biden is not being long winded either. Seemshe coaching worked on both sides.

Sydney said...

Is it my high def TC or is Biden's coloring suddenly off? It looks like his cheeks and forehead are both flushed in some spots and pale green in other spots, like right in the middle of her forehead. Gawd, I hope he doesn't collapes.

Gayle said...

I am not a Palin fan.

nancy in nj said...

i like bidens tie....not so sure the lenders were 100% at fault.. yes, they should have not allowed these mortgages...but people have to get some common sense about them and be able to figure out what they can and cannot afford...just a thought

nancy in nj said...

i like bidens tie....not so sure the lenders were 100% at fault.. yes, they should have not allowed these mortgages...but people have to get some common sense about them and be able to figure out what they can and cannot afford...just a thought

Laurie said...

I'm watching the debate. Sydney, when I first saw Palin tonight I was trying to figure out what was different. Thanks for letting us know. As an aside, that hair in her eyes bugs me!

I won't get political, just want to say it's nice to be a part of history and be able to watch this. I'm old enough to remember the last time this happened!

Clementine said...

Sydney: Palin's makeup does look great!

I like that they are looking at each other and making some connection (unlike the Obama/McCain debate).

Taking health benefits! Ugh!

Sydney said...

Palin just said Barak Obama and Joe Biden xyz. That's interesting because the press were speculating that she might be coached to not ever say their names, but just call them my (or our) opponent.

Gayle said...

I don't have the converter box attached to the TV so I am not seeing the clarity I would see with it - he looks just a little pink. Probably trying to control his mouth! They were both coached and are trying to be mindful of it.

nancy in nj said...

sydney... LOVE how you can pinpoint the style of it all!!!

gayle...i was referring to sarahs accent..not what she was or was not saying. i love that midwestern accent

sydney, biden just looks a little pale and gaunt on my tv...

Gayle said...

They told her not to attack them personally. She made an age snide remark against Biden earlier in the week.

Clementine said...

Oops, I meant "Taxing health benefits! Ugh!"

I don't want to have to purchase my own health care benefits, when we're in a recession! How many people would give them up to save money (well, more than happens now!)

I have to research this more, because Biden is losing me.

Sydney said...

I just can't get past it. The little looks, the things people are saying make her so "down to earth" or relatable... they just don't strike me as Presidential, or Vice Presidential.


Clem, I know. As much as I admire some of the things McCain has done in his life and career, I really was disappointed when he refused to look at his opponent.

nancy nj said...

YAWN..........their both a little dry....

Sydney said...

Gayle, I remember that, and then Couric pointed out her running mate was the same age! That was such a torturous interview!

nancy nj said...

oohhh...shes getting a little feisty...

looks like bidens been coached to look at her an smile when she takes on her point

Clementine said...

She overuses the colloquilisms. Up 'thar in Alaska! She would be more effective if she said it straight.

Sydney said...

She is far more effective when she drops that smiley winky thing. She has delivered a few sentances with a serious look and sound and I just feel if she did that more she'd be far more of a true power.

OOh she made a good point about the energy thing, but then Biden made a decent save in his comeback.

Gayle said...

Nancy, I agree with you - they are a little dry. They're trying too hard to be mindful of each other.

Sydney said...

smile -- both with blindingly white teeth...not my fave trend.

nancy nj said...

i'm getting a little tired hearing about hockey moms too...she needs another expression

wonder if biden could do something about the bags under his eyes

Sydney said...

Since Biden was named VP, each time I've seen him speak, I get the feeling he forgets he's not running for Prez as he had hoped. He almost forgets to mention Barak.

Creepy smile at Palin.... My eyes! My eyes!

nancy nj said...

i would like to see america producing a lot more of its own oil

Sydney said...

Here's the climate factors question.

Clementine said...

How could bankruptcy courts lower the principal owed on mortgages? Who would make up the difference?

She's obviously more knowledgeable on energy than any other topic. When she can speak with confidence, she's much more effective.

nancy nj said...

i agree sydney....biden acts more as if he thinks he is running for prez...not mentioning BO too much in compar. to palin mentioning mccain

Gayle said...

Sydney, this debate is crucial for her. Some are calling for her to step down as she is not seen as a serious, knowledgeable candidate. They have really been working hard with her to help prepare her for this debate.

Sydney said...

Palin is stumbling over the answer. It doesn't sound like HER answer. It was an important question for her to answer and she isn't comfortable with it. What pressure. I would not want to be doing this.

Let's see how Biden does.... Good, believable, strong answer. The sad thing is, no matter how they both answer any question, I don't know that I can believe what either party or candidate can do once in office.

nancy nj said...

uummmm....i don't see china giving a flying hoot about how much they pollute

Clementine said...

Nancy, I do like "Drill, baby, drill!"

Sydney said...

i know Gayle, this was so key for her to do well and look natural at it.

Sydney said...

ooh, the same sex benefits question. I am interested to hear what is said...

Clementine said...

Back to the fashion critique... her glasses are also very flattering.

Sydney said...

Ok, Palin was truthful about her non support of gay marriage, I am surprised to hear Biden say neither he or Obama believe in it either. Hmm.

nancy nj said...

i said i couldn't take being on survivor....whew...i def could not take this pressure! its official...i am the bloggers biggest wimp

Gayle said...

Biden has been warned about being condescending and talking too much. He is to be respectful to her!

Sydney said...

lol about drill baby!

Sydney said...

oh a classy looking hit -- On withdrawl, Pailn says she respected Biden for telling Obama off about an opinion he had (or a vote). he must have said soemthing in the early Dem nom debates and that's that backhanded compliment.

And he just ignored it, didn't get defensive or blanch, just said I didn't hear a plan in that (as that was the question).

Debate is not bad so far

nancy nj said...

i think they were both a bit uneasy about the gay issue

iraq....they both seem to have the same plan......gradually withdrawl the troops......i guess its just the timeline

Clementine said...

Are we really spending 10 billion a month in Iraq?

Whoever said Biden was coached to show amusement when she was talking was right.

nancy nj said...

bidens eyelids as white as his teeth

Sydney said...

oh, she is hitting biden over this troops thing, and she looks confident and strong right now and he is smiling with those hideous overly large overly white teeth and unfortunately it is making it clear she is getting to him.

Sydney said...

But he hits back with some McCain vs. Barak facts... and, on to a new question.

Sydney said...

Lol Nancy -- eyelids not being the same color as the face or shiny are a pet peeve of mine. I always made sure to match that on the guy clients I did make up on!

Clementine said...

Sydney: maybe you know this, are there better teeth whitening methods that don't give that glow-in-the-dark look on tv?

nancy nj said...

bidens doing pretty good with his terrorism launch...

Gayle said...

Can you imagine having had to commit all of those facts into a working memory in such a short amount of time? I know I wouldn't have been able to do it, but I'm still not a fan!

Sydney said...

Clem, if it's amusement he's trying to show, then it's prolly not any more effective than McCain's try at making Obama look like a youngin' when he kept saying "you just don't know, you just don't know anything" (paraphrasing). It is supposed to show the other person up but I think it's far too risky and makes the one doing it look bad. I prefer straight classy. I do think Barak showed that in his debate... looking at McCain, going to him to shake his hand, going over after the debate with his wife to McCain and his wife, and pretty much keeping his cool thru the entire thing.

nancy nj said...

i do find it annoying that we (america) are a little too "friendly" with those that are VERY open about their hatred of us

Sydney said...

I also would have put as much make up on Palin's chest freckles as on her face. That is another oft forgotten mismatch on TV. Remember Shelia from BB?

Let that be a lesson to all of us! lol

Gayle said...

Clementine, probably the teeth whitener the dentists use is more natural looking. They also have the expertise in using it so that your teeth whiten and look natural.

Sydney said...

both are taking stuff out of context.

Oh well, I guess that's politics. Here I am focusing on the external to not get into too much of the politics, but it seems these debates really are more for us to get a little look at the candidates as the y talk, walk and breathe (external) more than to really get a sense of any true policies or plans.

sigh

nancy nj said...

sydney...i wish you could come show me the best way to do my makeup!!

my hubby just said he cansee palins panty-line in her skirt

Sydney said...

Augh, I just didn't like that whole delivery of that looking backward thing... and I 'm glad we agree on Israel. IF she says I respect you to Biden one more time. Delivering all that with that ironic little smile, I'm amazed it wasn't followed by Nah na na na nah!

nancy nj said...

good for sarah to say that this regime has made mistakes...

smart comment to tell biden their continuing to look back prevents them to look ahead to change...

Sydney said...

NANCY -- be happy to! VPL! visible panty line? I was thinking it would be a sure bet that spanx were under there or support hose with kind of the panty part woven in.

Clementine said...

Chest freckles! One of the many risks of appearing in high-def, lol

His smile is getting very smirky

There were definitely some points she should have countered, but not having the foreign-policy experience, she's sticking to her script

And Biden is surprising staying on script, too.

Diplomacy? what's that? Oh, yeah, something that we last saw in the Clinton administration. Better polish it up, it's very rusty.

nancy nj said...

how old is biden?

Sydney said...

oh this whole war subject is boggling. What really are the facts, and what is right and what is wrong to do from where we stand now?

Anonymous said...

I'm enjoying the debate dialog while I listen and catch up on the Survivor blog! It's going better than I thought it would. so, we'll see!

I was raised in Wisconsin so I love the mid-west accent! but, um, not hers...:)

Karen in MD/DC

sue said...

I'm watching it live on CNN on the computer. I like the little lines that tell reactions. I have recorded the debate, but just got home, so came in late.

Sydney said...

Nancy -- born in 42... how old is that?

Sydney said...

Hi Karen

Hi Sue!
