Survivor Tocantins: The Dragon Slayer

jackie's tv blog, survivor

Welp, according to the promos, the merge is on tonight! The show has started here on the East Coast. While my full show review will be posted at TV Squad later tonight, I'll update this post with the major events as they air.

Of course, the real fun is in the comments! Join on in!

The merge has gone down and they're pigging out ... er, eating.

Tyson won the first individual immunity. Jeff is making Joe get his infected knee checked by medical.

No one will be voted out tonight -- Joe was evacuated due to his leg.

Hey, hey, hey! Anyone here?

Laurie said...

Hi Becky! I'm here to get my preview of what I'll see in 3 hours.

Jackie said...

I'm here. I'm waiting for the beverage cart.

monty924 said...

Hey, hey! I've got loaded potato skins, sour cream on the side, and cold draft beer.

Who says Joe goes home tonight after using his fake idol? Because of his injury? or Joe stays?

Bring on the fun. :)

becky said...

Hummm, the beer looks good. I bought some fresh popcorn.

If they merge, they will pick off the others.

Laurie said...

I brought the friendly bartender I met at a Las Vegas poker party the other night. He'll be fixing any drink you want and serve it with a friendly smile.

monty924 said...

Anything that starts with an "F", lol... good one Taj!

becky said...

Coach still turns my stomach. You would think that they would let them have some antibiotics.

Boy, my gal the principal skin looks horrible. She has too many sun spots.

LucyGrace said...

good evening everyone. hope you are having a lovely thursday. the weather is just so spring-like today.

so we get it straight from the start...IT'S ALL ABOUT ME FROM THIS POINT ON. (coach makes me gag!)

so now, he's a symphony conductor? what a whack job.

Big Brother is holding casting calls in my area. i just saw a little ticker tape thing at the bottom of my screen.

i can offer you all hot tea, but i think you guys like something a little harder!

monty924 said...

Hmm, I'll take some of that wine the castaways were drinking. Laurie, tell the bartender to slide me a glass of Shiraz, please.

Are they setting up a Coach redemption? I think so.

Laurie said...

LucyGrace, hot tea sounds really good to me! Thanks.

Redemption of Coach? No way!

monty924 said...

I don't know... I think Erin is liking the "new" coach. Will we or won't we?

monty924 said...

Glad they got the Timbera tree swing.... weeeeeeeee

becky said...

One thing I have never understood, Why do they drink at these meals. Being in the poor physical that they must in without having decent nourishment

monty924 said...

Well, well, well, here Stephen goes lucking into yet another alliance. This one with Tyson and Coach... He's charmed or something. I don't get it?

LucyGrace said...

is it just me, or does taj look the dirtiest...her clothes are just nasty. coach looks like he just stepped out for the evening. has he done a lick of work other than weather control?

becky said...

Coach change? You can't turn a sows ear into silk. Leopards don't lose their spots. Nah, he is still Coach, the one we love to dislike just wearing a cleaner personality.

Was Brendon the one who made the deal with Taj? If so old Coach may get blindsided.

monty924 said...

LG, Coach is your classic do nothing leader. tell everyone else what to do and not get your own hands dirty. Not my kind of leader.

becky said...

Hey, Jackie, everytime I comment tonight I mean to ask you how you are feeling. Then I get carried away and forget until I send the message. How do you feel?

monty924 said...

Yes, Becky. Brendon and Taj are the head of the Exile Alliance. JT has ratted him out though.

becky said...

No, no, no, Teach! Debra, you aren't very smart. Get a grip! The little twerp thinks almost as much of himself as Coach. He talks about what a sweet talker he is. Frankly, I think he looks sleazy.

monty924 said...

Tyson has the right idea... stay crouched and low.

LucyGrace said...

i thought guys were good about holding onto their pole?

becky said...

I like Brendon. Damn! Sierra, please, please win. Drop JT, drop! Good!

becky said...

Drop Tyson, drop!

becky said...

Darn!

monty924 said...

Oh a little smack talking there toward the end. Tyson looked like a monkey up there on the pole. I thought Debbie had that one.

monty924 said...

So Tyson's face is his money maker? You have to admit he delivers great one liners.... yes?

Well, he makes me laugh. :)

Jackie said...

Becky - I'm okay, my non-operated on (yet) knee is really bad. I've been working all kind of extra hours on my day job. So, I'm running tired a lot. Thanks for asking.

Laurie said...

Tyson's face is his money maker? Okay, that needed a spit alert!

monty924 said...

God, this is getting complicated but good. I'm so confused!

monty924 said...

What??? No tribal council? Now all the plans go down the toilet, lol. Oh, this is good.

Coach: "Call me what you want?"
That man doesn't know what most of us want to call him.

I whooped when I heard TC was canceled.

monty924 said...

I'm happy that Joe isn't risking his leg or his life for this game. That was sort of poignant at the end there. I'm glad my girl, Taj, told Jeff to tell Joe that they loved him.

becky said...

I hope Brendon pulls Taj back on board. I liked Joe, but am glad that Brendon isn't going home for sure. And I don't even have his name.

becky said...

See all of you Sunday.

monty924 said...

For the westies, it was a great episode but it all led up to a let down in a way. Hope you all enjoy and see you later for TAR. Nite all!

nomad said...

Hi! I'm a Westie!
I am brewing some tea in anticipation of my own survivor night.
Laurie, maybe we can watch it together, huh?
I've been watching old episodes I missed on youtube.
It was nice reading the comments!
Sorry the night didn't end right.

PDX Granny said...

Hi y'all! I decided to stop by for a bit of partying while waiting for the show to get started on the west coast. Laurie, do you still have the cute bartender handy? If so, have him fix me up with something. Anything. He can surprise me. I like surprises! : )

meb said...

Well as usual, I missed the party. I can't watch and blog at the same time and I hadn't even watched Lost yet, so I watched it, then Criminal Minds and just finished Survivor. I love fast forwards through the commercials.

Happy no TC. Coach didn't get on my last nerve tonight like he usually does, but I was wondering when Brendan was going to say something to the other three. Finally he does somewhere between tonight and next week!

Later guys.

nomad said...

Hi Laurie and PDX Granny...our time is now! Any others? I've got easter eggs ready to go!

Laurie said...

Hi Nomad, I'm here and ready to watch the show!

Laurie said...

Elaine, the bartender thought you would look good with a nice cosmopolitan in your hand!

nomad said...

Amazing how nice coach got after his time of yoga.
he freaks me out.
Loving tyson, though. What a funny guy!

Laurie said...

I don't trust Coach being nice.

Tyson? Ugh ... too arrogant for me.

Laurie said...

Really, Tyson is making me ill. What a scum bag. Yeah, he is only playing the game ... but I still don't like him! Coach looks a little worried, like he has lost the leadership role he thought he had.

Knowing how it ends makes all this sneaky talk and back stabbing very interesting. It can go on for another week now!

Purrbal said...

I don't like Tyson or Coach I can hardly wait for them to be GONE I hope things flip more for next week.

Sydney said...

Hello All -- I got in too late to watch tonight and just now saw it on TIVO. Boy, what a great ep was building... and then.... everyone got the wind let out of their evil plans.

The good thing was that they could explain away their reactions to feeling bad about the guy who had to leave.

One more Survivor gets plucked out of the race for a million by mother nature. I'm surprised they didn't have the medics look at it before Jeff mentioned it. I know they are out on an island but they have about 10,000 production people around them at all times too... Hoping he heals up just fine.

We got Full blown Tyson in all his imagined glory tonight didn't we. I see why he and coach are buds. I haven't really noticed him before and so for a little while I was kind of amused by him, thinking he was joking. I loved how there were several people congratulating themselves that they were leading this plan, the key person, the head of the dragon!

Jennasmom said...

Well, my boy Brendan survived thanks to Joe's misfortune. I really hope somehow he can flip things around & get rid of Coach or Tyson next week. Those two are just too full of themselves for me. "Arrogant" sums them up well.

I really liked the Exile Island alliance & hope Steven & JT will stick with Brendan, Taj & Sierra. I just find them much more likeable.

TerryinCA said...

Well I am sorry I just got on to comment.....
Jackie, Im so sorry about your "good" knee. Are you off work as well?
Coach is disgusting, and toss Tyson in that bag together....I want Taj, Brendan,Sierra and Steven to stay in alliance...Steve will backstab anyone wont he?
Hey Laurie.....whip me up a drink tomorrow ok?

becky said...

Good write up on TV Squad, Jackie! My WV is ackbo - sounds like something I want to do when Coach is on screen.

lynn1 said...

Joe was my guy in the Survivor Pool. I was sorry to see him go due to a medical emergency.

To be honest I have not been an enthusiastic Joe supporter. I didn't dislike him as much as I dislike Coach and Tyson but he made some chauvinistic and sexist comments about Erinn and Sydney that rubbed me the wrong way.

I will now cheer for JT and Taj.

Going off topic for a minute, did anyone else watch Harper's Island? It was ok to me,not great,but still interesting.
It reminded me of an Agatha Christy type story where there are lots of characters invovled and they are slowly but surely being murdered off.
The young girl is creepy and disturbing to me.

Sydney said...

Zoetawny --- Are you reading? How are you?

ORKMommy said...

Well, poor Joe had an infection. Don't those guys know by now that the medical team is gonna pull you if you have something that bad? Because of Joe's injury, we've lost Lynn1 & Nana in the NW.

Until next week...

Bejamin "Coach" Wade - Terry in CA & Gayle
Brendan Synnott - Jennasmom & Jodie
Debra "Debbie" Beebee - Becky & Petals
Erinn Lobdell - Dixie & Zoetawny
James "JT" Thomas Jr. - Margo & Donna in FL
Sierra Reed - Meb & Rozee
Stephen Fishbach - Caroline & SueGee
Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George - Jackie & Delee
Tyson Apostol - ORKMommy & Barbwire

Joe Dowdle - Lynn1 & Nana in the NW
Sydney Wheeler - Sydney & Leslie
Spencer Duhm - dla & KarenJC
Sandy Burgin - Joyce & Nomad
Jerry Sims - Rbennie & Karen
Candace Smith - PDX Granny & Sizzie
Carolina Eastwood - Laurie & Donna in AL

nomad said...

Tyson's lastname is Apostal? HAHAHAHa I love that. I know it is not a popular choice, but I think he is so funny!!! (Also, the way he looks reminds me of my grandfather I have never met because he died young before I was born.)
Anyway, I think he is real funny.
Though I must say, face to face, he would probably intimidate me. I also really like the exile island foursome as far as personality wise. I hope their trick works.
