Survivor Gabon - 11/06 Show Post


True, this isn't my Survivor logo -- it's an update on that ornamental kale I photographed a few weeks ago. I am alive, my apologies for not posting much. I'm still fighting extreme fatigue and I'm tending to fall asleep after getting home from work.

Tonight's musical non-sequitur which I meant to post on election day:
It's time for a new direction
It's time for jazz to die
On the fourth day of November
We need a purple high.
-- Prince "All the Critics Love You in New York"

The show has started here on the east coast. I'll update this with major events and post my review on TVS later. Everyone is welcome in comments!

Ohhh ... not a merge, a reshuffle with numbered stones, odd and even. New Kota: Bob, Marcus, Susie, Crystal, and Ken. New Fang: Sugar, Charlie, Matty, Randy, and Corinne.

Matty won Immunity for the new Fang tribe, good thing as he would have been the target had Fang lost.

Whoa ... Kenny worked his mojo on Susie and Marcus was voted off!

First!!

Hi Jackie, glad to hear from you. Work is exhausting, even when your in full health. Get your rest and thanks for the Survivor post.

Go Kenny!!! (from me and Txrednekgirl)

Donna in AL said...

Jackie, so glad it's just fatigue!

Sydney said...

WOW, did I miss what looks like it was a great ep last week! ACE, G-O-N-E!

My husband noticed that for what I think is the first time that eliminated contestants are no longer shown in the opening credits.

Clementine said...

Oh, Sydney, you dirty rat! You took my First without even asking!

Well, what's a girl to do?

Fourth!!

:)

joy n said...

Way to go, Sydney.

Jackie, it's gotta be rough trying to get back into the old routine at work and with a bum knee.

Sydney said...

good idea to not make any more promises in your girlfriend!

So did the idol come into play? Sorry, can anyone tell me?

Sydney said...

Well, I just learned that Sugar still has the idol, but it seems that people on her team are all OK with it. How did she pull that off!

DO we think there's a merge

joy n said...

I believe there is a merge tonight.

Sydney said...

Koda 6 with that one chick hating Suzi !

Donna in AL said...

Corinne (sp) is not nice.

Jennasmom said...

Yeah, Jackie's okay! Not watching the show yet - after I get the little one to bed - I love tivo! But had to check in and make sure Jackie was okay!

joy n said...

Fang had to be drooling at that sight.

monty924 said...

They (Fang) are literally starving. Its nice to see them eat for once.

Sydney said...

hmmmm? What's all this?

Sydney said...

why is he saying he doesn't want it........... OK, I must be dull tonght

joy n said...

Kenny tried to pull a fast one and got caught.

Now everyone is afraid to touch it.

Sydney said...

this is why I should stay here at home and not play this game. lol

joy n said...

What a total a**hole Randy is.

Clementine said...

"These people are so stupid"

Now there's an understatement!

monty924 said...

I guess that's the stupid idol blunder.

monty924 said...

Wow!!! Didn't see that coming.

joy n said...

Whoa, two new tribes! Didn't see that one coming!

Sydney said...

remember when they used to show all the digestive problems that would happen to the starving contestants after these feasts because they had not been used to real food for so long? Now they never show those aspects of the game.

joy n said...

Of one mind, monty.

Sydney said...

never feel confident in this game! Hello! Rule #1

Sydney said...

My husband said that the idol is floating... go out and find it!

Sydney said...

jennasmom -- you're in blue again!

joy n said...

That kind of messes up the boys plans, doesn't it?

Clementine said...

Do you think the idol will wash ashore?

Syd: I don't want to see any yacking or squirting, thank you very much, lol!!

monty924 said...

I think Marcus and Bob could be in trouble if Kota loses the challenge tonight. I don't trust Susie to stay with the Kota 6 plan.

Joyn, lol... great minds think alike. :)

becky said...

Jackie said: I am alive, my apologies for not posting much. I'm still fighting extreme fatigue and I'm tending to fall asleep after getting home from work.

No need to explain. Anyone who has ever had a serious illness or surgery knows it takes a while to get back on your feet. Get as much rest as possible, and know your buddies understand.

When you get time would you please start a new Dancing link. I kept trying to post Monday and the post would appear and then disappear.

WOW! New tribes. I am really disliking Randy more and more.

joy n said...

I don't think anyone will forget that Kenny tried to keep that idol for himself.

Sydney said...

Marcus is just too moral! First everything for his girlfriend... and now loyal to Christyal due to a relative?

Where was this kind of guy when I was dating for 25 years???????????

Sydney said...

pretty eyes Chrystal.

Sydney said...

Could you wear contacts out there?

joy n said...

Gee, Sugar, you think?

Sydney said...

another twist with Sugar -- do we know the truth? DId I miss that last week?

How does Sugar keep those brows pin up girl plucked on that island?

monty924 said...

Too bad Sugar didn't think that through before voting Ace off. Hindsight is always 20/20.

Clementine said...

Becky, your comments were registered on the DWTS post. At the top, under the number of comments is a link for "Newer, Newest". Hit the Newest link and you'll go to the next page (with the comments from 200+)

Blogger changed awhile back, and now creates a new page when comments go over 200! I don't like it!

joy n said...

Susie's got some cajones.

becky said...

Clementine said...
Becky, your comments were registered on the DWTS post.

Thanks, Clementine. I feel a little foolish now. LOL But that's okay -- I am used to not being quiet all there.

Jackie said...

I'll get a new DWIT post up tomorrow evening for you.

Jackie said...

Et, DWTS.

Lars said...

Jackie what happened to Ace?


Lars+ StarRie??

Clementine said...

Kid Scientists on Letterman tonight! I won't be able to stay up, but maybe I'll tape. I love Dave and the kids.

I'm only rooting for Kenny because he's was assigned to me. I guess I'm rooting for Sugar, but I can't decide if I even have a favorite this season.

monty924 said...

I don't like Randy picking on Matty! :(

Clementine said...

Becky: the only reason I knew about the second page on blogger posts is because someone else pointed it out to me, too!

Thanks, Jackie, for offering to make a new one for us!

Sydney said...

what the hell Chrystal!

Sydney said...

hating the long nails on Ken

sorry folks, pet peeve :-)

Sydney said...

zJeffs words really do get to people! NO FAIR!

Sydney said...

poor BOB-- total trouper!

monty924 said...

Bob or Marcus... which one will it be? Hopefully it will be neither and Crystal will be gone. She didn't last a nanosecond in that challenge.

Donna in AL said...

I don't like guy nails either!
I thought Bob had it.

joy n said...

Crystal or Ken, methinks one of them's days are numbered.

Sydney said...

lol CLem -- I don't want to see that stuff either but I must say, it did help convey just how bad they were suffering out there -- how REAL this reality show is....

Donna in AL said...

Crystal has not been any help in but one challenge. She has been a big disappointment. For an Olympian, she just does not have any skills I have seen.

joy n said...

Crystal always has an excuse about why she didn't do well.

Donna in AL said...

Suzie has been better at challenges than Crystal.

Sydney said...

I like Chrystal's interviews.

monty924 said...

Susie should have never told Crystal that Marcus said final three. She is NOT smart.

Clementine said...

Hmmm... buncha sneaky gameplay going on. What will happen?

joy n said...

Crystal and Kenny will tell anyone anything to keep floating through this game. Why does anyone listen to them?

Sydney said...

could Bob's clothes be any dirtier? Actually I just realized everyone's clothes look the same color -- brown

monty924 said...

Could this be blindside #2????

Sydney said...

Marcus.... taken out by his girl Chrystal... That is outwitting if it's true

Sydney said...

GOOD season in terms of twists (for the viewer)

monty924 said...

Why yes it was. Crystal is running more than we think. WOW!!!

Sydney said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
joy n said...

Crystal and Ken will be the first to stab Susie in the back. Bet on it!

Donna in AL said...

I have noticed for weeks now that Corrine's and Suzie's wine colored shirt is real dirty on their boobs. I guess cause theirs are bigger than the others. hee hee

becky said...

Woah! Marcus got voted out! He let his power go to his head.

Crystal does not impress me either.

Jackie, thank you for starting a new link. I now know how to go to the second part of the existing link. Save your strength and just rest. We can get by since Clementine told me how to get to the newest posts.

joy n said...

Marcus was too decent for this game. He needed to be a little less ethical.

Clementine said...

Who had Dr Marcus in the pool? Sorry you got blind-sided by my Kenny!

Donna in AL said...

How will Kota win any challenge now? What type of challenge could they win.

Clementine said...

So how long til they merge, do ya think?

joy n said...

Crystal did most of the dirty work.

Clementine said...

Jackie, love, love, love the Prince lyrics! You rock!!

Anonymous said...

Well, my Matty pulled one out tonight and it's a good thing for him. I also noticed Kennys long fingernails-YUCK!
RJM

Sydney said...

wow -- I've been watching DWTS and have totally forgotten to comment this season... what's up with me. Busy busy busy is my problem lately.

meb said...

Man... my Marcus got voted out... NO FAIR! He was the best player and it took Susie, Crystal and Kenny, the weakest of the weak to do him in. Unbelievable! Actually it's Survivor's fault for doing another merge again. I think they do that just so someone who appears to have it all together gets blindsided.

Sue, we lost...and we were doing so well.

joy n said...

Nathan won Top Design last night.

Gayle said...

Jackie, will you make us another "Grey's Anatomy Post" tomorrow after you make DWTS's? We have 206 posts and have to scroll over to a second page also. Thanks!

Laurie said...

Good to hear you are okay Jackie. We all understand being exhausted at the end of the day. Give yourself time.

I really dislike Crystal, my gal in the game. She is such a downer.

Trying not to read ahead tonight but it's not easy. They just formed new tribes here on the west coast. Arrogance all around!

Gayle said...

Hi Laurie!

I left you a post on your blog under your visit to Chicago section.

Anonymous said...

Seriously? How does an olympic athlete SUCK at every physical challenge? Can she do anything but whine and get all ghetto on everyone? She needs to go now! And hope Kenny's arrogance comes back to bite him. He seems smug next week.

Anonymous said...

i didn't have anything to add, but my WV is "penos"...thought i would put that out there for all you dirty minds

joyzjenn

Anonymous said...

and now it's "prost"...hmmm close to probst...think survivor is sending dirty messages

PDX Granny said...

WOW!! Another blindside!! Good show tonight. Full of surprises!

As usual, I didn't want to know ahead of time what the outcome was, so I haven't read any comments yet. I'm really glad I waited.

I'm a bit torn on how I feel about the final results. I've always liked Marcus, but he was shown to be a bit full of himself tonight. And I have to give Crystal props for masterminding the blindside.

I'm really happy Matty won immunity. If it had been Fang that went to tribal, I have a feeling he would have been the one targeted. I'd much rather see Randy go. He's a jerk!

OK, now that I've had my say, I'm going to go read all the other comments and see how many times I change my mind. You all have such good arguments, and I find myself agreeing with them all!! LOL

PDX Granny said...

I noticed Kenny's nails too. Not only were they long, but they looked white in one shot. My first thought was that they were artificial.

But on the other hand, If I don't cut (or break) my nails, they would be long too, after 30 some odd days. They probably aren't furnished with nail clippers.

My WV is outish - as in Marcus is probably feeling a bit like this.

Jennasmom said...

No, not Marcus! Orkmommy, our boy Bob could be in big trouble! I thought Bob & Marcus were stupid to trust Susie. I would've made a deal with Crystal & Kenny to vote off Susie and then at least you'd be 2 and 2. They knew she could turn on them!

KarenJC said...

donna in al - I think its their swimsuit or undergarments showing through their shirts that make it look that way. At leasat that's what I always thought when I noticed the same thing...

Good twists in the show last night. I thought I was the only one who noticed Kenny's nails - they almost look fake.

Joyn - I was not happy Nathan won Top Design - I really like Preston - and could we all just choke Eddie?

Have a great day - it's good to see Jackie is okay - keep resting, it's the only thing that helps after surgery. I kept coming to the blog to see if anyone heard from you - take care!!

Karen in MD/DC

meb said...

OFF TOPIC: But thought I'd mention that whenever you see someone has been tagged, you should go over to their blog and read their comments. They are very informative and fun to read something you didn't know about someone.

So far, laurie, donna in al, sydney, and myself have posts.

I don't know if you saw it Jackie, but donna in al tagged you, so when you get time, you gotta respond. Let's see what else there is about you that we, your followers, don't know.

My wv is recesty... guess that means that these tags are recess from the norm. Well, something like that.

RBennie said...

Good morning all.

Hey why didn't anyone tag me? I'm feeling left out here. You guys don't want to bring back my abandonment issues do you? LOL, JK.

I was glad when Matty told Sugar the real deal about Ace. She should feel bad that she turned on him. I never did see why she would just blindly trust Kenny like that. As much as I don't like Kenny and Chrystal, I have to admit they are a force to be reckoned with! They may suck at challenges, but they play the mind game pretty well and seem to be the most loyal alliance in the game. I really didn't see that Marcus eviction coming. Even if they lose the next challenge, they will still be in a good position. Vote out Bob and the Kota 6 will be down to the Kota 3, since Suzie has already turned. Has there ever been a season where the weaker players have dominated the game?

Glad to hear from you Jackie. Take it easy. That exhaustion should wear off eventually.

PDX Granny said...

Good morning, all! Just wanted to wish everyone a good day!!

Jackie, take it easy and rest, rest, rest!!! Hopefully, you have the weekend coming up to do just that. If, in between rests you can shoot off a quick comment, that would be good for all of us worry warts.

My WV is burfus. I don't know what it means, but I kinda like it. :)

lynn1 said...

I thought last night's show was good. I figured it wasn't going to be the merge last night because that was all the survivors were talking about and it would have been just too easy for Kota to pick off Fang one by one.
Since my player was the first voted off this season I have to freedom to cheer for whom I like and hope for the ax for the ones I don't like.
I think my favorite player of all of them is Bob. He seems like a smart and decent guy and has proven himself to be a good competitor in several challenges.
I really don't have much love for Corrine or Susie. When they go I won't shed any crocodile tears.
I know I am goofy but I like Randy and Kenny. I don't honestly think either of them will win but I think it helps to be a little bit of a weasel to win this game.
The rest of the players it doesn't matter one way or the other to me. As the numbers dwindle I am sure I will get strong feelings about each of them.

lynn1 said...

I forgot to mention that I noticed Kenny's finger nails too. Not only were they long but they were nasty dirty.
You could plant and grow potatoes in that dirt under his nails.
I understand they are not living in luxury but how tough is it to go down to the river and use a little water?
Disgusting and gross! YUCK

Paloma Soto-Castillo - Tessa
Michelle Chase - lynn1 & Barbwire
Gillian Larson - Lars Eller & Donna in AL

ORKMommy said...

I've read all the comments, so I can make my own now :-)

I actually like Randy. He's playing a very good game in front of the other players, but then we get to see how full of himself he is behind the scenes. I really think he could win this thing!

Crystal is a whiny defensive baby! She needs to go! I can't believe Suzie fell for her crap!

I think Bob may be in trouble next week unless they actually do merge. I don't see how they can't. I think the change up this week was just to mess with their heads. There's only 10 people left, so I think they'll merge next week. At least I really hope so...

Glad to see you back Jackie. My step-dad is having knee replacement on Tuesday (for the long timers, that would be Barbwire's husband). I told my mom she should start reading your blog again to get all the info from your surgery!

Sydney said...

RBennie - I guess you haven't because you don't keep a blog per se, however, I have just tagged you.... so you can go to my blog -- The New Yorker in Houston one and see what mine are... then you can post it here if you'd like -- or maybe Laurie can post it for us to read over at JackietownUSA,!


You've been officially TAGGED!

meb said...

rbennie... I too would have tagged you but you didn't have a blog, so I didn't think ahead like Sydney did. Besides, if we who have been tagged, tag too many people at one time, they won't have anyone to tag. Does that make sense?

I wanted to tag everybody. LOL

And Laurie, who obviously can't see very well, (we should run her a benefit for glasses) tagged donna in al, after I had already tagged her. Kidding Laurie...just kidding.

Laurie said...

Orkmommy said: Crystal is a whiny defensive baby! She needs to go! I can't believe Suzie fell for her crap!

She's my girl and I totally agree. I just want to reach in the screen and knock that chip off her shoulder!

Sydney, good idea to post the tag on the other forum. I'll do that right now.

Jackies Town USA

RBennie said...

Thanks you guys, I was starting to feel like the redheaded stepchild! I don't have a blog because I've been too lazy to start one up. I will let this be my inspiration and my responses to the Tag will be my first entry. I'll let you know once its up.

Anonymous said...

Feel Better Jackie! The ornamental Kale is beautiful. Don't worry about your articles at this point, just get your health back. Sleep and rest as you need to.
Caligirl

Sydney said...

Even better idea RBennie! Then you can tag some of the other people who have blogs -- that's how it goes. It could get annoying if it went around too much, but I got tagged twice just recently for the first time ever and was glad to be included too...

I will be doing my second tag in a few days and had some of y'all on the list!

Just realized we have not heard much from tbc, Elieen, TXrednekgirl, Katie in Ch, margo and Caroline and Tessa... unless I missed a lot last week. Not everyone live blogs but I figured since everyone threw their hat into the pool ...

Donna in AL said...

Rbennie, I went to yours and a couple of others before tagging Jackie and ORKmommy. Ya'll did not have a blog and I (unlike Sydney) did not know how to do it without one!

I found out from a vendor via work email that it is snowing in Iowa...it is almost 70 here! I am still trying to finish painting the trim on the outside of my house. With it being dark now by the time I get home during the week, I have to wait to have that fun on my weekends!!

ORKMommy said...

Sorry ladies, but I'm gonna bow out of the tagging. I know it can be fun, but I just have this thing about tagging and email chains. I hope nobody takes it personally...

RBennie said...

I created my blog guys, if I did it right, you should be able to view it. It was fun.

OMG - I think my WV is in Japanese or something. I have no clue what the letters are, LOL.

Margo said...

Looks like me Corrine is gonna let the *hit fly next week when she discovers her Marcus is gone! I hope they don't have any sharp knives cause she's "gonna stab someone in the face". Eeekk I would want to be Suzie. Africa's not gonna be big enough for both Corrine and Suzie. I hope she can run fast. LOL

Sydney- I'm here everyday just not talky.


Margo

Caroline said...

Here I am Sydney!

Personally, I am very unhappy with last night's ep. It seems like they switched tribes just so the weak players would once again have more strong players on their team to vote off. They only switch teams after the weak team has run out of strong players...smells fishy to me.

I can't stand Kenny or Crystal. They don't do anything in challenges, they don't do anything around camp and they're so full of themselves. This is not the kind of gameplay I enjoy in my Survivor. I realize "outwit" is a strategy but this is the first time I've seen "suck at everything I do and then vote off the people that might help me eat" as a strategy.

Now I have to stand up for Corinne cause she's my pool pick, but honestly I'm surprised so many of you don't like her. The only negative things I've seen from Corinne pertain to Susie..and quite frankly Susie has said enough nasty things about Corinne that I understand the friction. Susie better hope next week isn't a physical challenge...cause now she's given Corinne even more of a reason to 'stab her in the face'. I know personally I'd be out for blood at this point. Just beating Susie, Crystal & Kenny wouldn't be enough...I'd grind their faces into the dirt just for a little extra satisfaction.

Margo said...

Well said Caroline - my pool buddy.
Margo

WV sterlizz - looks like sterlize maybe i'm dirty?

joy n said...

I'm not happy about Nathan winning Top Design either and was also hoping to see Preston win. I loved most of what Preston designed and very little of Nathan's work. He was too 'out there' for me. I wonder if personalities came into play. Preston wouldn't do well at hosting his own show. Nathan, on the other hand, could hold his own doing that. If that is so, they should change the name of the show.

joy n said...

I like the way you think, Caroline!

ORKMommy said...

Caroline - I like Corrine! Probably because she's so self aware and isn't afraid to say it. She knows she bitchy and vindictive and she owns it! I probably wouldn't like her in real life, but I respect that she's willing to embrace her lesser characteristics!

joy n said...

PONDEROSA is back! Marcus cleans up real well. Check out CBS.com.

joy n said...

Be sure to watch some of the other clips there, especially Behind the Scenes and the Crystal related ones. She is not a nice person.

Caroline said...

Haha, you guys are great!

At least Matty got away from Kenny & Crystal. I've always liked him, but couldn't root for Fang. Now I hope that after seeing Marcus is gone that Sugar, Matty, Randy, Corinne & Charlie will all work together. And Bob if he's still around, but I think his days are numbered. Once individual immunity & the merge comes Kenny, Crystal & Susie won't have a chance. Originally I was disenchanted about things to come after Marcus got ousted...now I have their destruction to look forward to!

Jennasmom said...

I hope they DO merge next week. And they can vote off Susie! If not, Bob is gone! There's no way a team of Kenny, Crystal, Susie & Bob could win any challenge unless poor old Bob wins it for them. Can't believe Crystal was an olympic athlete! She is useless! And does Susie think she could actually get to the final three with anyone?

RBennie said...

Unfortunately Caroline, I think the more likely scenario is that once they merge Matty & Sugar will hook back up with Chrystal & Kenny. Isn't it kind of ironic that after wanting so badly to get rid of Sugar, she's now the closest thing to an ally Matty has?

RBennie said...

LOL Jennasmom, that would be something of a miracle if Susie made it to final three. But then again, stranger things than that have happened on Survivor, so never say never.

Donna in AL said...

None of us thought Sheila would make F3 on Big Brother either but... I hope Suzie, Crystal or Kenny none make it much longer..

Doesn't my WV sound like something Bubba would say: swangby

Caroline said...

Oh Rbennie, I hope that's not what happens. It would be an unfortunate development for my personal viewing pleasure. But in an effort to find the silver lining...I'd totally be rooting for Sugar at that point. And I would hope the original Kota members sitting on the jury would make stupid Fang pay for letting her keep her Idol all this time and crown Sugar the winner.

RBennie said...

If Sugar manages to hang on to that immunity idol, even though the entire world knows she has it, then I guess she would deserve to win. Even though I'm annoyed with her for voting out my Ace.

RBennie said...

Okay Monty924 and lynn1 you don't have blogs but I'm taggin you anyway. You can find the questions and answer them on Jackies Town USA or if you are feeling adventurous, start your own blog like I did. It's fun.

lynn1 said...

Ok rbennie, you tagged me and inspired me to finally start my own blog.
I invite all of you to visit my blog to see my answers after being tagged.

WOW, I watched last night but fell asleep before the voting. Shocked that Marcus is gone. This season seems so different than the others, in regards to gameplay. Is it just me or do others think so too?

Zoetawny said...

I almost got freaked out for a second when I didn't see the Survivor logo. I had been concerned about Jackie's absence this week and thought she hadn't put up a Survivor entry. Whew!

Jackie...

Great photo of the kale. It turned such a beautiful color. Will the entire plant turn that lovely shade of purple? Your musical non-sequitur was perfect for election day. I was a huge Prince fan and have to admit I did feel like I was on a "purple high" election night.

I don't like having to post the day after Survivor airs here on the west coast. It seems to lose momentum. I watch two of my fav shows (CSI, The Eleventh Hour) right after Survivor. By then it's too late for me to come back online.

Bummer! Marcus was voted out. Susie just can't seem to get her head straight...dizzy bat is right. Who the heck is she loyal to? Does she even know herself?
Jackie, the picture you put up of Susie on TVS is so appropriate.

The feast looked really good, didn't it? Former Fang had to really appreciate it since food was such a issue with their loosing tribe.

Of course nobody wanted to claim the idol. It wouldn't have been much of a hidden secret. Not liking Kenny much I'm glad he didn't pull it off.

Do you think the split was set up for Kota? I say this every season, the original tribe members will tend to stick together even after the merge.

I was hoping that Bob would have won the challenge but he did come in second. He outlasted the stronger younger players which surprises me. He's a cool old dude. Where did Crystal's Olympic training/talent go? The snarky looks on her face really bug me. Can you tell I don't like her?

Matty has more determination to win this game than anybody this season. He also has the strength to win challenges. How he will avoid getting voted off after the merge?

Our local news just announced a clip about Lost. Shoot! I missed it because of an important phone call.

Jackie, I hope you can sleep in this weekend. TGIF!

Have a great weekend all!

joy n said...

I just read on TMZ that our Matty (Whitmore) is the grandson of 87 year old actor James Whitmore. James is the guy who hung himself in Shawshank Redemption, one of my all-time fave movies.

Matty's father also has a claim to fame. He was the spokesperson for the L.A. Sheriff's Office when Paris Hilton and Mel Gibson were separtely arrested for DUI. Just FYI.
