Survivor Tocantins: "The Strongest Man Alive" Blog Party

jackie's tv blog, survivor

Welcome one! Welcome all! While my more extensive show review will be posted later at TV Squad, this post will be updated with events and my thoughts as the show airs here on the East Coast. Everyone is invited to party in the comments -- just remember, if you make a mess in there, you have to clean it up.

Jalapao won reward -- raid the other camp for two items. Because Brendan hadn't talked to Sierra yet, Taj selected Sierra for Exile and Sierra selected Taj instead of Stephen.

Timbira finally won something -- Immunity!

Sandy was voted out. Not a huge surprise.

Decisions... decisions... I'm watching Survivor and taping AI. What a night, lol. Hi Jackie and everyone!

Donna in AL said...

Hey Monty and Jackie! Who else is in the house tonight?

Jackie said...

Same here ... even though I have to take really good notes on Survivor to write it up without having a recorded back up.

lynn1 said...

Coach is a royal PITA.

Delee said...

Me too, Monty, taping AI and Hell's Kit.

Hi all, good luck to your peep!

becky said...

Hey, everyone. I'm late, but I'm here.

Please, oh please let Coach go home. I feel sorry for anyone who has his name.

Delee said...

Taj's tree trunks should take a lot of weight!

monty924 said...

Love this challenge. It looks brutal!

Delee said...

Hope they get a good massage after this. My back would never take this.

Donna in AL said...

I have tree trunks for legs but no back! I like Taj.

Donna in AL said...

Good sportsmanship at the end of that one on both sides..

Well,Petals, our gal Debra couldn't hold on. I hope that Coach doesn't decide she needs to go home because of it.

monty924 said...

Go TAJ... I hope this quirk in the plan doesn't hurt her. I can't believe he couldn't find the time to tell her something even if it was a quick "Pick Steven", ugh

Alecia said...

Yay for Taj!

becky said...

How much weight did they manage? I am stronger than I look -- or I used to be before my reconstruction. Now I have to be careful of the weight I pick up.

I like Taj too. She was very sportsman like after she won.

Delee said...

hey Jackie, have you heard anything about Harper Island? I have not researched it yet.

Delee said...

The girls were holding 100 and 20 more were about to be put on.

Delee said...

OH MY and Sydney is not here to defend her reputation!!! LOL

becky said...

Hiss-boo Sandy. Go home! Okay, it is a game. But to leave them with no food, come on! Plus she is jealous of the pretty girl.

sizzie said...

I can't watch until later, but still like to check in. I found an article about Coach being fired from his soccer job. I know it isn't news (the article is dated Feb 18) but it is the newspaper where his college is, so thought you might like to read it.

monty924 said...

Yes, you go TAJ! She's figured it out!

Jackie said...

Delee - Only the commercials and Wilipedia entry for Harpers

Sydney said...

I was pulling for Taj in that weight challenge. And she showed great sportswomanship to hug her opponent. That plus the alliance, girl knows how to play the game. Who of you has taj???

Delee said...

Thanks Jacki, but

Harper Island an island (duh) 25 people and each week someone is killed, can you guess the murder. Just saw an ad.

Sydney said...

these puzzles have become quite complex this and last season. I wonder if they hired someone new. Loving it.

monty924 said...

Is it just me or does it not seem like everytime they show the example of the puzzle... its the eventual winning team? If so Timbera has this.

Sydney said...

c'mon, Sydney!

Sydney said...

good job. I would just like to see the team whose been losing win one this time.

I'm not for either team at the moment.

Delee said...

monty924 said...

Once again... I thought I noticed that last season. Its a dead give away as to who will win the challenge. Arghhh

Sydney said...

How could you even begin to figure this out????

OK! I got my wish... though my girl Syd might be gone

Sydney said...

Thanks for turning off the WV Jackie. Just realized that... and for the 2 bachelor nights too! I don't know how you do it ALL...

Petals said...

Hey guys! Late start here. I am busting over here.... guess why??!?!?!?!?!!!?!?

Jackie said...

Delee - Google Harpers Island and there is a Wikipedia entry with information.

becky said...

I keep wanting to call that one team Jalapeno. I sure hope they send Sandy home. I do not like mean spirited people. The being angry because they didn't take all of the other teams food.

Jackie, I have a favor to ask of you. Could you let us know when Leverage comes back on and maybe set up a chat link for it. That became one of my favorite shows.

Petals said...

My #2 in the world (2nd only to Andre in my heart) accepted me as a Facebook friend.... Goran Ivanisevic!!!! I am beyond. Just beyond. So bear with me, please.

Delee said...

AI girl that people do not like is getting her judges comments.

She sang the same song now 3 times.
Can she sing more than one song? Simon

Tatiana finally heard her name

Randy some good moments and some bad moments

Delee said...

Oh Petals...you and your hunks...happy for ya!

Thanks Jackie will check that out soon.

Petals said...

Anyone? Who was the cute Southern guy from 2 or 3 seasons ago...the one that was on a team with that cute, tough chick? And both got to come back?

Delee said...

NOOOOOOooooooo not Sydney!!!

Sydney said...

Why would she have said that? SYDNEY!!!!!

Petals said...

Delee - OMG, if you could see him...his newest photo. He just gets better with age.
I am just busting over here with JOY!! *sigh* Goran.

Donna in AL said...

Petals, there is some tennis match in Birmingham this weekend. My boss had free tickets to it.

Sydney said...

Flirting doesn't often work in the end. Ask ...what was her name? Padre, Padma, Poverty? Pavarti!

Donna in AL said...

Bobby and Stephanie

Sydney said...

What did I miss with Bobby and Stephanie? Who is that?

Petals said...

Donna - I envy you, if there are any Croats or Serbs playing.

So, is Sandy history tonite?

Petals said...

Syd - LMAO!! Poverty! hehehe...

Donna in AL said...

Bobby and Stephanie are the two Petals asked about from a few seasons ago that came back.

Petals said...

Flirting did work for Amanda (with my Ozzie) and for the one that married Rob - Amber.

Sydney said...

I'd still be surprised that they don't pick Sandy over Sydney... but this may be my pool's final moments. I liked her bio video but I haven't seen much of her at all this show, not enough to like or dislike her.

Petals said...

Syd has to stay!

Sydney said...

Joe? Someone's not in an alliance!

Delee said...

Wonder if Taj worked out with her husband and he helped her put on good weight before this.

WHo voted for Joe?

Sydney said...

DO we have a clue who voted for who? We didn't see it in the discussion clips.

becky said...

Sydney said... Flirting doesn't often work in the end. Ask ...what was her name? Padre, Padma, Poverty? Pavarti!

Didn't she get to the finals and win? She beat out Ozzie's GF.

Whew, Sydney, you snuck by. The Survivor Sydney is really a beautiful woman. Her complexion is flawless.

Petals said...

Donna - YES, thank you! Bobby & Stephanie, yeah. That was a rough season to watch, with their whole team collapsing one by one, finally the producers took pity on them - the only ones worth keeping - and let them come back.
Thanks for remembering.

monty924 said...

OK, I'm off to watch AI. Not surprised with the vote other than one vote for Joe?????????? Where did that come from and why?

Alecia said...

Donna in AL said...

The ending clips have not played here yet. Do they not show how they voted?

Delee said...

OK Petals, that pic is making my heart weak!!!

Petals said...

G'nite friends. I have a date with Goran's picture (can you blame me?)~~~>

Sydney said...

Speaking of las season, does anyone know if Amanda is still dating Ozzy? I was trying to clean my computer of excess and saw I still had the link to his little porn video, lol.

Delee said...

Taj voted for Joe

Donna in AL said...

Taj voted for Joe.

Delee said...

Thank you Jackie, do not write too long and get some rest!

Donna in AL said...

This is the second week in a row CSI has not voices, just music, sounds and background noises!! urgghh

Sydney said...

Hey Lynn 1 -- long time no hear from! How are you?

becky said...

Sydney said... Speaking of las season, does anyone know if Amanda is still dating Ozzy? I was trying to clean my computer of excess and saw I still had the link to his little porn video, lol.

Do you still have it?

Sydney said...

Thanks Delee -- I was wondering where I go back to see the list before I ask who has whom. I know we get an updated list posted after the show, but that didn't help me in the moment.

I can't believe your memory for coming up with the names of Bobby and Stephanie! I was thinking it was about Tennis... I was like, that was Bobby and Billie Jean. I saw it and thought of Bobby Flay and his wife from Law and Order SVU Stephanie March. They are the best people.

Sydney said...

that last part about memory for names was for Donna... I hit send before I went back and directed the comment toward you!

Sydney said...

Chris Brown on CNN -- Larry Kind right now.

Sydney said...

Becky -- I think so. I tell you I almost deleted that line until I remembered that everyone here watched it and was giggling and admiring of his talents, lol, and I was the last to see it.

If I can find it I'll pass it along -- if you like!

lynn1 said...

Hi Sydney & everyone,
Haven't had time to post recently but I read the posts for Survivor, Lost and Tar.
Hopefully my busy schedule will loosen up sometimes next month.

TerryinCA said...

Lynn, Becky.....I have coach and I hang my head in shame each time I think of him.....I first thought it was a good sign....you know Coach like Coach Handbags....not true...

SueGee said...

Petals - lots and lots of the Survivor Alums are on Facebook. Look for them!

And Go Stephen!!!

Laurie said...

The show is on here in a couple minutes. I read the posts (and laughed at some clever comments) so I know Sandy goes home. I just don't remember who Sandy is!

rozee said...

Boo for Coach and Sandy! I am glad they sent Sandy packing.

I hope it is just the editing for Taj and really out of context.

Can't believe the cover is already blown for the "Secret Alliance" as forshadowed by the teasers.

Caroline said...

Great episode!

My roommate & I just managed to convince our friend to start watching Survivor with us and this was only the 2nd ep he's seen. When Taj told Sierra about the plan and she responded with "Ooh, that just gave me goosebumps" all three of us started to cheer. We've totally made a Survivor fan out of him.

I also hope the previews are misleading. It's far too soon for Taj & Brendan's alliance to get blown...there's so much potential for great moments if it stays secret.

And I'm consistently impressed each week with Taj & JT. If I was ever on this show, I'd definitely want them on my team. Good at challenges, positive in camp, hard workers, but still having fun. They're both great assets to their tribe.

meb said...

What was that all about in the previews when Taj said you can "kiss my a$$".

And how did anyone find out about the secret alliance???one of them had to spill the beans to another tribal member.

Well, at least Sierra had a reprieve from going home, since they didn't have to go to tribal council.

Can't stand coach, but can't stand the other guy who is his "assistant" more. He has such an ego, and he's ugly, and he keeps getting nacked...yes nacked, and he isn't one I would like to see without any clothes. He's a real jerk! Don't know his name, so don't know who has him in the pool, but I know you must be having a hard time rooting for him.

Naked guy is Tyson

becky said...

Anonymous said... Naked guy is Tyson

OR -- as someone very cleverly came up with the nickname (since he is Coach's mini-me) last week --Ko-tex.

Syd, send the Ozzie link, please. I still think Ozzie was the greatest Survivor ever. He and Rupert are my all time favorites

Donna in AL said...

I came up with the name...Ko-tex's teeth are too white. So white, it bothers me...maybe I'm just jealous! Not!

sizzie said...

Laurie said: I just don't remember who Sandy is!


**

I just got to watch and had to ff through the comps. Too little time! Sandy is the woman who got to ride in the helicopter with Sierra the first day.

Taj voted for Joe.

Laurie said...

Thanks Sizz, I did remember when I watched the show. I'm glad she's gone. She was just a bit to gritty for me.

Tyson has so many thing wrong with him that I can't begin to list them. And then there's coach's hawkish stare. Scary duo who will eventually stab each other in the back. At least I hope so!

Sydney said...

Becky -- um, I forgot Pavarti won. But didn't people hate her by then?
