Survivor Tocantins - "You're Going to Want That Tooth"

jackie's tv blog, survivor

The show is starting! While my full review will be up later over on TV Squad, this post will be updated with major events. Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun in the comments area!

Jalapao won reward -- cafe, coffee, pastries, restrooms with product placement -- they chose Brendan for Exile Island. He chose Stephen to go from the winning tribe. Tyson is suspicious.

Surprise, surprise ... letters from home were at the cafe.

Timbira wins immunity. JT, who did the best for Jalapao, is really ticked off. He also broke his tooth.

Spencer was voted out.

Whew, thank you Jackie!

Sydney said...

And no Word verification again. Have we mentioned YOU RAAAWK!

Sydney said...

I always want to say jalapeno (tribe)!

Donna in AL said...

Hi Sydney, hi Jackie!

Sydney said...

oooh, why do I feel this won't last? I want it to, asit i s the first in all the seasons. Something tells me Sierra is a risk since no one spoke to her about it before Taj did.

Sydney said...

HI Donna!

Donna in AL said...

She reminds me of Ceiri or last season or before. I don't know how to spell her name.

monty924 said...

Hey Jackie and Sydney. Did Taj just make a major boo-boo by giving Stephen the idol?

monty924 said...

And hi to Donna!

LucyGrace said...

hi everyone. i'm going to try to hang out a bit tonight to "re-acquaint myself". i am going to faithfully appear for the DWTS, since margo so graciously added me to the pool.

anyhow...is everyone aware that jeff blogs each episode? i had no clue until i was reading something last week. here's the link to last week's show.

i just love jeff. there's also word that he might be giving it up, but maybe that's just rumor.

Jeff Probst interview last week was bout the record number of blindsides this season. Ohhhhhh no watch out Taj, better yet Brendan!!! He also said that even though this season is more physical, the winner will surprise everyone, because they deserved to be in the top 3 to begin with!!! Ohhhh who could that be?

Sydney said...

Monty said Did Taj just make a major boo-boo by giving Stephen the idol?

-- we think she did!

I smell blindside #2 coming tonight.

Sydney said...

Don't get TOO confident. Don't these people know THAT always kicks you in the ass eventually??

yeah coach, only a matter of time for you too arse!

Sydney said...

cool contest

Sydney said...

here am rooting for the red team, but I don't like it when one team always wins.... it makes the show a drag to watch long term.

last two on the beam

Lucygrace said...

friggin coach, why isn't he participating, really. all that complaining he does about his team not winning and not experienced being "out there" like him...he sickens me. he should be on the spinner, not the spinnie...he needs to prove himself.

Sydney said...

crap

Sydney said...

Lucygrace -- TOTALLY!!!

Sydney said...

what odes that mean, classy move? Well, mr. blue tee is onto them...

monty924 said...

Yes, a blindside is looking more likely than not tonight.

becky said...

Sorry I am late. Hope there are drinks left. I wasn't going to watch tonight. Planned on taking some good "drugs" and hitting the bed. I had an implant inserted today. My gum is cut almost to the very back because the dentist found periodontal disease and had to scrape the bone to remove it. To say I am in pain is like saying snow is cold.

monty924 said...

Wow, this seems a little early to be getting a letter from home. Taj is getting the boot edit tonight. Yikes!

Anonymous said...

kind of a jackass????

Sydney said...

Becky - Glad to see you. I want to say we'll make you feel better , but I'm not sure we can do better than drugs!

OUCH. That sounds horrible!

Anonymous said...

Becky go lie down and get some rest. Just the word dentist freaked me out!! Is snow really cold?

Sydney said...

Donna, Taj is kind of playing like Cerie-- she's just a little less arrogant about it?

Sydney said...

he's like -- snore...

Anonymous said...

Becky after my c-section (and 4 1/2 months of hospital bedrest) the doctors kept telling its okay to take something stronger than what I was already taking Tyenol 500mg, I told them no thanks I was leaving this place asap. Well why didn't they tell me Heprin thins the blood so, that I had no energy when I got home. Thank goodness those kids took a while to come home.

Take what ever they gave you Becky, you can catch up next week, review tomorrow.

Sydney said...

Too bad being gay has any other effect than say, hair or eye color...

monty924 said...

Where did I read that Todd (winner) is dating Brendan... or now I'm thinking it might be Spencer???

LucyGrace said...

ouch becky! hope you have enough "good drugs" to get ya through it. i have some very necessary dental work that needs to be done that i keep putting off.

LG said...

sorry, hit send too soon..wanted to say hope you feel better soon becky.

Sydney said...

Not a smart move to go directly to Taj for that hung coming back from Exile Island.

Donna in AL said...

Agreed Sydney but I loved Ciere.

Becky, go lie down ... catch up with us tomorrow!

lucy g said...

will that tooth go on ebay?

monty924 said...

OMG.. first Becky and now JT. I'm hurting for both of you.

Sydney said...

why was Spencer just standing around?

lucy grace said...

you know what i would like to see? a survivor (or BB) show with all game/reality show hosts. don't you think that would be fun?

Sydney said...

Monty -- I was thinking that too about was it SPencer he's dating? Though I can't picture Todd -- out of sight, out of mind.

Donna -- I liked Cerie too - a lot, but then toward the end it got to be a little too bwahaha much for me....

monty924 said...

Lucy Grace, if they ever did one I'd watch it. :)

Sydney said...

whaaa? Where did this come from Taj?

Sydney said...

God, once in awhile, my body is inhabited by someone else... could it be hormones?

monty924 said...

Taj is NOT helping herself right now. UGH!

Anonymous said...

did i miss something, what is taj so pissed off about?

and no, she does not have the idol, the dude has it.

Sydney said...

We must have missed something that led to that outburst.

He's better served in the MOMENT by her going home maybe but not in the long run

Nana in the NW said...

syd--Todd was the little guy who had an alliance with Amanda(Ozzie's girlfriend). He was a flight attendant and I think in the F4.

And yes, we did hear from Joyn that Todd and Stephen... or Spencer are dating. I hate getting old and senile!

Sydney said...

girl always looks like she has shimmery, pretty lipstick on.

How?

monty924 said...

Oh, I can't watch!

Sydney said...

spencer looks MASSIVELY guilty!

LG said...

if you google todd and spencer dating, the first 12 sites come up and confirm it.

Sydney said...

wait -- the guysTaj is in an alliance with looks guilty. He must not be Spencer

OOh,m Taj is going home right?

monty924 said...

Boy did she ever dodge a bullet.

Sydney said...

Oh no.. Strike that, Yay. I figured they'd put all Spencers up first and suddenly the rest of the votes would be for Taj.

If she was voted off now, the show would take a turn I don't want yet. I want to see if this alliance can make it.

So they edited last week's previews and this whole show to make it look like the alliance would be bust before it really began!

LucyGrace said...

wow, that was a very quick hour.

a little bit of trivia for you....
jeff retains one particular item as a souvenier from every season, what it is?

Sydney said...

lol -- who is this jackass!!!

well, Taj avoided a bullet!

monty924 said...

HA... the line of the night. "Who is this Jackass", LOL. Can't wait til next week now. :)

monty924 said...

Sydney, stop reading my mind, LOL. :)

LucyGrace said...

it was a pleasure watching with you all tonight. enjoyed the "company".

see you again soon!

Anonymous said...

monty, no show next week. previews said "in two weeks"

monty924 said...

You're right Anon. My bad. Now I'm off to rewatch this so I can catch everything I missed. Geez! See everyone Sunday for either TAR or CA. Niters!

Sydney said...

omg monty -- 2 for 2!

TerryinCA said...

Oh thank you Sydney...I have been saying that myself all along! Jalapeno, ole!
Lucy Grace - I think it is the fire snuffers he uses at tribal?

I cant wait to watch tonight, you guys have me all stirred up about whats going on....I dont want Taj out at all!!!

Lucy2~ said...

Next week is the NCAA tournament, so no new show.

I was offended by Spencer assuming that JT would automatically vote him off if he knew Spencer was gay. Prejudging people because they are gay--wrong. Prejudging someone from the South--okay? Why is being anti-Southerner an acceptable discrimination?! I am from Nashville, so I have to represent all open-minded Southerners (with or without teeth)!

Also, it was good to see Taj not have that dress knotted around her waist and dangling in a phallic manner. I have to be honest and tell you that a few times her "knots" have made me do double takes!

See you all in two weeks!

Anonymous said...

Just an FYI, the show is not on next week and it is on Wednesday in two weeks, not Thursday. HTH

Petals said...

Hey guys...

Laurie said...

You mean it isn't the Jalapeno tribe? huh!

Thanks for the warning there's tooth breakage in this episode. I'll look away if I can!

Only 20 minutes to wait here in California.

Petals said...

I love JT. Minus 1/2 a tooth & all..

Petals said...

Ms Laurie! I just watched & the tooth isn't gross or anything. It's not "look-away" worthy. hehe...Speaking of which: How are YOUR teeth, Ms Smiles?

Donna in AL said...

Lucy2, I am a Southerner too and agree. I love JT, he reminds me of my older brother.

meb said...

Watched...but didn't get to comment.

OFF TOPIC: I also watched Damages (Glenn Close) and previews said there were only The Last Three Episodes left. Does anyone know if they meant for the season or is it finished. From the previews, it appears it could be over. ??? Anyone ???

Anonymous said...

Why was Probst so adamant about finding the tooth fragment and keeping it? It was JT's tooth and he's the one who threw it away. When I've broken teeth and taken the piece to the dentist, they don't use it.

RBennie said...

Whew, I was a little worried for Taj last night. I really hope this cross tribal alliance lasts at least until the merge. I'm sure this is what the PTB (powers that be) wanted to happen when they came up with sending one from each tribe to Exile Island. In a perfect world Timbira will lose next week and send worthless Coach home. I thought that edit with the rain last night was priceless.

ORKMommy said...

ORKMommy said...

Anon - All they said at first was "he lost a tooth". If it's the whole tooth, a dentist can re-implant it. If it's a partial they just cap it. Jeff wanted to find it because he though it was the whole tooth.

Petals said...

Ork is correct: JT's tooth, if partial, is just a souvenir now. Depending on the impact, he may need RCT later, but the rooth may be repaired with a 4-5 surface composite, crown, or an implant.

In any case, I would happily hold JT's hand during any of this treatment. heheh

Margo said...

Hi all -

I just read Jeff P blog over on ew.com and he has the tooth. He said he is going to bring it to the live finale and give it to JT is he changed his mind and wants it. Also said next week is BBall and the following week is Wed for a recap show and a new episode on APRIL 2. Well I guess I can catch up on all my tivo'd stuff.
You guys should read his blog it is often very funny.
I hope JT doesn't become a medical emergency because of the tooth thingy. Apparently someone does.
Maybe Coach's head gets so big it explodes. :)

becky said...

To the two Lucys and Donna.... I am from the South too and I resent it when people think we are prejudice, hicks with no taste except in our mouth. Just because we talk slow does not mean we ARE slow. We are not all dueling banjo material. Okay, back to my wheel-less car that is jacked up on boxes.

Thank you to all who sent good thoughts. LucyGrace, welcome to the blog.

Anonymous said...

Jeff gave the tooth back to JT at the very end of the challenge, didn't he?
