Survivor Tocantins Ep. 2 - "The Poison Apple Needs to Go" Blog Gathering

jackie's tv blog, survivor

Oh, I wonder who the bad apple is, don't you? I hope it's "Coach" because he's so obnoxious! He lost his real job for lying about being away on the show. Heh.

Welcome one and all to the blog party known as a Survivor episode! Feel free to join in down in the comments as the show airs or afterward. If you're in the Survivor pool, I hope your chosen one fares well tonight. That is, unless my own pool choice is kaput because of your chosen one! I'll be updating this post with the major events and my review of the show will be posted later on TV Squad. Survivors ready?

Jalapao won immunity, fishing gear, and sends Brendan to Exile. The note twist from promos is that Brendan can choose one from the other tribe to go with him. He chooses Taj.

Neither have the idol.

Candace gets voted out in a blindside.

Petals said...

Hey D!!

Petals said...

Love your mask, D. When I was growing up in Mobile, my family had KOR and MMM floats. I rode for years, throwing moonpies & dubloons.
FUN!

"Moo-PAH, Moo-PAH" (moonpie)

Delee said...

Hey Petals...

Delee said...

I was envious of yours, mine is blurry so I changed it...never been to Mardi Gras just NOLA LOL

Petals said...

SO I have Brendan only, as I gave my share of Deb to...who? L?

Donna in AL said...

Hey, former Alabamaians! Is that spelled correctly? ha ha

Delee said...

Sierra knows a pace but not a palm tree!

Sydney said...

One more time someone tells someone else on the tribe about the idol. Is that a good thing or has it proven to NOT be good?

What is he going to get out of it? Except for maybe it starts an alliance, and you need to get in one eventually.

Sydney said...

Good save -- firepit

Delee said...

Hi Donna, I have no idea Alabamians who knows :-)

Petals said...

D - U have mail

RBennie said...

Hi guys. I'm looking forward to a good show tonight. Go Jerry!

Petals said...

Former Alabama-slammas!?

Delee said...

Will check it later...

Yum hard beans or mushy rice!!!

Delee said...

GROSS GROSS GROSS keep your tongue to yourself Coach YUCK

Sydney said...

We shall see what happens to Candace and coach? Are both annoying or do both offer value or is one great and one a jerk or all of the above?

Donna in AL said...

I went back and found the list for us:

Bejamin "Coach" Wade - Terry in CA & Gayle
Brendan Synnott - Jennasmom & Jodie
Candace Smith - PDX Granny & Sizzie
Carolina Eastwood - Laurie & Donna in AL
Debra "Debbie" Beebee - Becky & Petals
Erinn Lobdell - Dixie & Zoetawny
Jerry Sims - Rbennie & Karen
Joe Dowdle - Lynn1 & Nana in the NW
James "JT" Thomas Jr. - Margo & Donna in FL
Sandy Burgin - Joyce & Nomad
Sierra Reed - Meb & Rozee
Spencer Duhm - dla & KarenJC
Stephen Fishbach - Caroline & SueGee
Sydney Wheeler - Sydney & Leslie
Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George - Jackie & Delee
Tyson Apostol - ORKMommy & Barbwire

Sydney said...

Nice -- I said who's Eddie George? My husband was like DUH

Sydney said...

Was it good or not for her to reveal that?

Delee said...

Think bad as the hubby made or makes good $$$

She just wanted to up her importance, but think a downfall.

Sydney said...

Previews showed this getting intense. LOOK AT THAT RAIN!

Delee said...

YEA violence

Sydney said...

OK Candace redeemed herself for the moment. GOAL

Sydney said...

I'd not be doing this in a bathing suit. I'd risk being buck naked with all that wrestling and not happy about it.

Sydney said...

Damn look at that RAIN

Petals said...

Great challenge!

Petals said...

Yes! Maybe Brendan will find the idol, ala Ms Sugar!!!!

Delee said...

I miss the rewards challenges.

If I went I would take a one piece and if allowed two then a 2 piece swimsuit.

Wow 2 banished to E_ile Island.

Becky said...

Great graphics again!

Donna, thank you for posting the list again.

Sydney, I didn't know who Eddie George was either. I think it will go against her. Ex Pro football player. They will think that the George's have plenty of money.

RBennie said...

Well that was an intense challenge.

Sydney said...

Delee -- great idea, a one piece. We don't see many of those on this show

Donna in AL said...

There is a lot of time left for discussing who's going home and TC

RBennie said...

Definitely not a smart move for Taj to say who her hubby is.

Petals said...

I'd never go on Survivor, unless it was Survivor, Antarctica.

Sydney said...

that's funny -- The angsty city boy. I think they will make for some fun scenes this season.

Sydney said...

The country boy is not the "teenager" is he?

Petals said...

Who is Eddie George: http://sports.espn.go.com/photo/2007/0905/pg2_w_george_195.jpg

Just another football guy...

Sydney said...

Tribal homelands means back at camp.. right? '
Woo, he can trade tribes!

Petals said...

Spencer is the teen, JT is the country boy. Put them together and you get a Southern Lil' Smokin Sausage biscuit.

Sydney said...

gorgeous background! Is this in High Def this year? I think so...

Sydney said...

Why did girl bring the long skirt to the island? Cool maybe but not practical...

Sydney said...

ooh, pretty boobies, lol

Sydney said...

we can't let go of coach yet. He's going to be too interesting -- at least for a little while.

Petals said...

Syd - How YOU of you to notice the island fashion. You so rock. You should be a SurvivaStylist.

becky said...

Don't these people ever learn from previous Survivors? Don't trash talk, don't tattle, try and fade into the background as long as you can.

Brent McKee said...

Coach continues to show just how big an a--hole he is.

nomad said...

I love the preview of the show I get by reading this blog. Can't wait to see the long skirt!

RBennie said...

I don't know who they should vote out. Candace has a big mouth, but she played hard in the challenge. Coach didn't really pull his weight at all. Sierra is probably the weakest on the tribe. Oh what to do, what to do.

Petals said...

Coach is interesting, yes. So many layers.

Delee said...

Thank you Petals!!! Hugs

Sydney said...

I agree RBENNIE -

Petals said...

D!! Cute avatar!

Delee said...

LOL you sent it to me LOL

Sydney said...

Didn't Sandy find it in the sand? Didn't she dig deep under the stick and find something? My husband says neither found a second clue.

I don't mean to sound weird but Candace is really pretty. I'm watching on a 60 inch high def screen so maybe that's the thing, lol.

Sydney said...

good answer Sierra. Not bitter. Good game

Delee said...

Respect trust oh my Brendan told a fib!

Petals said...

I know, D. hehehehehe

Sydney said...

SHout out to Nomad!

Sydney said...

Candace is pissed. Girl is a winner in her life

Delee said...

C never saw that coming...

Sydney said...

I'd be pissed too!

Petals said...

Who is it that Candace sued in a video scandal? R Kelley? M Tyson? I forgot.

Sydney said...

Damn!

Sydney said...

She must have pissed people off in idle moments, far more that they showed us.

Delee said...

Thank you Jackie until AR all!

Petals said...

Ooohhh...Colin Farrell. Thanks to Candice, we all know Colin has a huge...shoe.

RBennie said...

I don't think that was the right move this early in the game. You need to hang on to the stronger people.

Petals said...

Talk about a Blarney Stone! whhooowhh!

becky said...

Well, I not really surprised. Some times the more educated you are the more you feel that you know more than the other people around you. As an attorney Candace is used to people doing what she says. Some one should tell those folks that you can win more flys with honey than vinegar.

I think this tendency to let their mouth overload their a$$ is going to come back and bite Coach and Debra sooner than later.

Sydney said...

Candance's after comments: In the long run I was an asset"

She's right. But all you have to do is say the wrong thing to the person who's allied with everyone else this early on and you're gone.

Alecia said...

Timbira's a smart tribe, I hope they continue to loose immunity/reward challenges with players like Coach, Debbie & Sierra. The only member of this tribe I like is Brendan & I'm hoping that his secret alliance with Taj holds up.

Petals said...

Candace's former claim to fame:

Alecia said...

Candace is also in the Ciroc Vodka Ad with Sean Combs

Anonymous said...

Colin Farrell is the one who sued Candace.

Alecia said...

Yeah, Colin thought Candice had taken part in the sex-tape scheme with Nicole Narain (the woman in the tape) with plans of distributing the tape behind his back, the charges were dismissed a month after they were filed

sizzie said...

We were late getting home and then it has been a madhouse for the last couple of hours. I missed this Survivor and haven't yet watched the first episode. I am letting my team down. Sorry. Then I come on here to check things out and see my girl is gone and you all know things about her that I don't. I can't wait to catch up! But, I want to watch Lost and a few others, too.

Anonymous said...

Charges were dismissed but he still filed the suit.

Amberla said...

What is a pace? Still haven't figured that out...

Jennasmom said...

Amberla:

Pace: any of various units of distance based on the length of a human step

from Merriam-Webster :)

meb said...

Well Rozee... we're still in it. Sierra and Sandy both seem to manage to hang on. I still have a feeling Sierra isn't long for this game. Sandy either for that matter...sorry Joyce and Nomad, but we seem to be in similar situations, just on opposite teams.

Candace has a big mouth, and she wasn't much bigger than Sierra either. I thought Sierra did a pretty good in the competition holding onto that ball when it took three women to take it away from her. She lost it when they were drowning her.

Caroline said...

Yay, my boy, Stephen, scored the winning goal for his team! They're definitely working better together than the black team. And now he's in a potential alliance with JT...looking good for awhile.

I love both Taj & Brendan and imagine they had a fantastic time on Exile. I really hope they both make it to the merge and form an alliance.

They should not have voted Candace off. IMO, this could be the beginning of the end for their team. She was clearly the strongest female and now they are at a clear disadvantage in any challenge that pits the females against each other. Taj, Sandy & Sydney could easily take out Sierra, Erinn & Debbie.

meb said...

Dusty, I've noticed a couple of times you requested being in the pool, but I don't see your name listed. Margo must have missed your request. You can join rozee and me and root for Sierrra if you want, but I don't think she's long for this survivor, so I guess I'm not offering much. If only she could find that idol.

Or just pick who you like and tell us you're rooting for ?...

Did you get in the AR pool or weren't you interested in that one. Orkmommy is keeping that pool current.

meb said...

Caroline, you're right..the girls on Sierra's team will have trouble defending themselves if they are pitted against each other. I hope that doesn't happen often.

The joke is on me... I was so intent on Taj's team getting some food, that I rooted for them through the whole competition, and actually jumped out of my chair when her team made the last basket, winning. Then I remembered that Sierra is who I have in the pool, and she's on the other team. Too funny... I actually laughed out loud at myself, followed by talking to myself advising me to "pay attention"!

Margo said...

Dusty-

Do you want in the TAR pool. I saw your request for Survivor but not TAR. Let me know and I will add you to the list. ORKMommy is doing the Survivor pool. I'm going TAR.

Margo

meb said...

Margo...do I have the pools mixed up as to who's keeping which one. Sorry.. didn't mean to butt in..just saw Dusty asking again, and I thought it was for the one you were handling.

Paul McCartney and Wings sang Band On The Run.

Amberla said...

Thanks Jennasmom... Although I was being sarcastic :) I think Sandy is the only one on the planet who is unsure of what "pace" means, in that context.

Jennasmom said...

Amberla:

Good! I was HOPING you were being sarcastic! LOL
But you never know. Haha! I couldn't believe Sandy didn't know what a pace was! Good thing she didn't need that idol for the first tribal council!

Laurie said...

It's Saturday afternoon and I'm finally watching Survivor. "Coach" makes me gag more than the termites and worms did. He is a pig.

Knowing Candace is leaving, it's interesting to see the tide change for voting her out.

The water play was too much for me. It reminded me of high school basketball against the real jocks. I was scared all the time. However, I never lost my shirt or my bra! Hello peep show!

Not sure if someone else posted this yet, but Taj is also a singer on Sisters With Voices (SWV). I read that she first tried out for Biggest Loser. If she stays on Survivor she may lose plenty!

Margo blogged about what she would take to wear on Survivor. I agree with her that a bikini wouldn't be on the list!

Sydney said...

Yes, good post Margo!

RBennie said...

Welcome to the team Dusty. I like Tammy & Victor a lot and am glad to have another teammate to root them on.

Zoetawny said...

Hmmmmm? I finally found time to post and when I hit submit it said the page had expired and my post was gone.

Here I go again. I finally watched the new episode on my DVR, better late than never.

Can Coach be any more disgusting? Wasn't it Coach who initiated blindsiding Candace? If the tribes keep voting out the "alphas" will Coach be going home soon? Let it be so.

I don't think Taj was too bright revealing her NFL husband. Although, my husband didn't recognize his name. Maybe she just had to brag. Most players seem to resent other players who don't need the money. I agree with Jackie that it's about who plays the game the best and not about who needs the money the most. Although it's even more gratifying if a needy player wins the million, imo.

I agree with whoever said that a skimpy bikini is not the right style for Survivor comps. Why don't these contestants think ahead with their clothing selections. I'd wear a miniskirt, with stilettos. ;)

Petals...

Thanks for the link. Seems as though many game show contestants have an unsavory history.

WTG Erinn...for keeping your mouth shut.

Have a great weekend, all!

Laurie said...

Zoetawny said "I'd wear a miniskirt, with stilettos. ;)"

Thanks for the good laugh!

Yeah, Coach is the kind of guy women hate, isn't he? I expect he will be come this season's Randy. Remember how awful he was? Coach has the arrogance about him that makes me wonder what he is compensating for. And the moves he made on Candace? Ugh ... keep that tongue in the mouth, puhleez!

PDX Granny said...

I finally had a chance to watch the show tonight. I'm one of those who like surprises, so I didn't want to read any comments until after I watched it.

Now, I'm disappointed that my gal had her torch distinguished. . . . and not just because I had her in the pool. I think she had more to offer than just negative comments. Oh well. Sizzie, you and I'll just have to find someone else to tag along with.

The one I really don't like so far is Coach, and I have a feeling I'm not alone! On one hand, I wouldn't mind seeing him gone, but on the other hand, like Sydney said, he could be interesting to watch.

Several have mentioned that Taj shouldn't have said who her hubby is. I seem to remember during one of her "diary room" sessions that she said she wanted to keep that under wraps. It didn't sound like she volunteered the info. It was asked, and it seemed to me that she hesitated before answering.

I'd like to see Sierra get well. I feel bad that she's sick. It can't be easy fighting a bug and dealing with 120 degree weather ~ not to mention already being somewhat of an outcast. So far, she seems to be trying hard, and I like her responses to things.

In the previews they showed Taj and an arm talking about a 4 person alliance. I wonder if Branden and Sierra are 2 of the others. If so, I wonder who the 4th person is.

My WV is hymbrat. I'm thinking it's talking about Coach!! LOL

Jennasmom said...

Yeah, I'd really like to see Coach go. He's creepy. When Candice mentioned voting him out my DH got all excited, but, alas, it was not to be.....
At least my boy Brandon is still in it! Hope he & Taj go far with their alliance.
