Survivor Tocantins: "It's Funny When People Cry"

jackie's tv blog, survivor

Without even seeing the show yet, I would guess that has to be Tyson's line (the episode title). I want Coach gone, I want Tyson gone.

The show has started here on the East Coast. Everyone is welcome to gather in the comments area for snacks, beverages, and show talk! I'll update this entry with major events as they air. My review of the show will be posted over at TV Squad later tonight. Let's see if Sierra can make a comeback!

JT, Erinn, Tyson, and Deborah won reward -- local entertainment and a feast. JT told them to send Stephen to Exile. He told us he didn't want Sierra to find a second idol if there is one.

Debbie won Immunity. At least it wasn't Tyson.

Woohoo! Taj flipped it again -- TYSON was voted out!

Sydney said...

Coach coach coach coach coach

Did everyone read Jeff Probst's blog about coach that someone gave us the link to (was it dla?) last show post?

Sydney said...

Monty -- you come up with the BEST stuff! yes, I'd love some. I have some cold diet gigner ale, lol, Would you like some?

Jackie said...

The one in which Probst commented on the tattoos being new and for the show?

sizzie said...

monty..thank you, I love caramel corn and can't eat it anywhere but here ! That coach speech just made me gag...go Sierra ! Go home Coach !

monty924 said...

I love ginger ale... thank you! Coach is so full of himself, but I have a feeling he isn't going anywhere soon. Just a hunch though.

Sydney said...

Oh, coach's speech was going fine til he said he pressed 300lbs. Then tried to speak in french, THEN he mentioned the DRAGON SLAYER AGAIN>>>> and could not help but smile into the camera.

Sydney said...

Hmmm Jackie, I don't remember reading that. But I just asked my husband and he said yes. Nice, I have too much school work to remember anything apparently, lol.

Jackie I sent you a quickie question, for whenever you have time. i just wanted to mention it because you get so many e-mails.

Oh Tyson didn't have to say that. He's a biotch.

monty924 said...

Okay, I really dislike Tyson now. He is funny but also mean. Just MEAN! Did you see the look on Sierra's face? Oh, she will kick butt tonight if she harnesses that.

Sydney said...

wow, THAT is a COOL challenge!!! 7 holes! Someone was drinking red bull and coffee to come up with that one.

becky said...

I want Tyson and Coach gone! Plus the back stabbing traitors.

Caramel Corn, yum! I have some homemade ice cream here.

Sydney said...

why is coach lagging so far behind. It didn't look like he was trying to run very fast did it?

Sydney said...

those knots are not so easy to get undone.

Good idea Taj, to let her shoulders do the work. (Unless she trips. Yikes!)

Sydney said...

guess it's not so hard to tell which piece fits on the bottom?

Sydney said...

i take it back -- it IS as hard as it first looked.

becky said...

You know that when Coach was up he would lose the lead. Dragon Slayer -- try Drag A$$

monty924 said...

Now that's interesting.... Stephen will get a clue to the II that Brendan wasted. Awesome!

OMG, not another Amazon reference Coach. Give it a rest. I'm still creeped out from last week.

becky said...

Might know that Draga$$ would take over as the leader of his team. Why do they keep sending Steven to Exile?

Woah!!! Loved Jeff's little digs to coach!

Anonymous said...

Gotta love JEFF!!! Dang you mean the indigenous people who kidnapped Coach didn't ask him to solve board puzzles? Dang, I thought those were in his life experiences too!!!

Sydney said...

love having a camera in your face while you're getting sick dontcha? You sign it all away on those contracts! :-)

monty924 said...

Debbie's got some moves on her.

Sydney said...

THat was a funny montage of him on exile.

becky said...

Over eating finally got one that they will show.

He,he,he....Steven found out there is no other idol.

I guess he plans on keeping the idol that someone told him about.

Sydney said...

oh boy, they don't like Sierra

monty924 said...

Sydney, its been a while since they showed anyone throwing up after a feast. I wouldn't have wanted to be Erin there.

Sydney said...

oy, she's digging her grave more... have I missed something? Is Sierra horrible?

monty924 said...

This is totally playing up to be a Sierra win for immunity. Good!

monty924 said...

Finally, a tender side to Coach!

monty924 said...

Cool, shuffleboard. Where did everyone go?

Sydney said...

agreed Monty

Sydney said...

AUGH -- PIzza! They really know how to kill people!

Taj looks miserable.

Sydney said...

COach has an evil smile as he shows the rock.

Cracks are starting to form. They are setting up the possible turn to get coach out....

Sydney said...

iF only coach didn't look so smug while eating --- under an umbrella no less...

becky said...

Oh, BS Coach? If Sierra doesn't win immunity, she is going home. If she does, she will go home next week.

Sorry, but I would not give those jerks the pleasure of seeing me cry.

You should know that Coach would eat. I wish it could come back and bite him on the behind.

Sydney said...

Hmmm Jeff is the only person who does not look like he'd freezing.

Sydney said...

Oh, that was dramatic!

monty924 said...

Whoa.... didn't see that one coming. I hope it isn't Sierra going home.

Sydney said...

THat was a tough lost break for sierra. A person who does not need immunity got it.

Sydney said...

So the key to coach is just asking him for advice.

E
G
O

What would a meeting between Ekhardt Tolle and Coach look like? lol

becky said...

Darn, but I love the way Coach says if he had stayed he would have won! What a jerk!

I should have known that the editing would lead people to believe that Sierra won immunity.

Did you see the Judas kiss Debbie gave her? Debbie is my person, but I will cheer when she goes too.

Sydney said...

I know MOnty -- Becky has to still be here. Anonymous too> I think Sizzie just checked in. Jackie, are you there?

JoyN are you there?

I know it's not on yet for our westcoasters....

joy n said...

I'm watching mostly but also checking in here.

monty924 said...

Oh yes, go Stephen....

Sydney said...

What is with Tyson being so overtly cruel. It would be great if they got him out. They have shown him to be funny too, but he and coach bonded early, which gave me pause... I wondered what qualities they might share.

Sydney said...

TJ what are you thinking about wanting sierra to go over Tyson

Sydney said...

Hey girl! well thanks for saying hi. Always beings a giant grin to my face.

becky said...

I wish Tyson would decide this was the week to get rid of Coach. He was very upset at him when he chose to eat.

Oh, do take out Tyson. Please, please, please.

Sydney said...

OH! I didn't quite realize Brendan was the first member of the jury -- that's great. And then people are going to regret being so outwardly mean to Sierra, enmasse.

Sydney said...

ugh, could you imagine having a date with Tyson?

Sydney said...

THank you For saying something Jeff -- Tyson it could cost you in the game. Go Sierra, use your time to break Tyson down before the vote.

Sydney said...

go on Jeff AGAIN!

monty924 said...

I love, love, loved Taj's eyeroll. Reminds me of Jackie's

@@@ :-_

monty924 said...

Come on Tyson go bye-bye... PLEASE!!!!!

monty924 said...

Ohhh, I doint the happy dance...

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and so on and son on.... lol

becky said...

BARF!!! Coach is so full of himself. What a jerk!

Boy, he knows how to stroke people. I think the others will back off from voting agains Tyson.

Smug look of Coach's face. No smug look now! ROFLMAO!!! Remember how he laughed when Brendon was voted out. You better worry, Coach!

joy n said...

!!! I AM SCREAMING FOR JOY !!!

For joy and joyn!

Jackie said...

:::dancing with joy:::

Sydney said...

wow -- That was PRICELESS!!


I wonder, don't people who go on this show WATCH season after season and realize that the arrogant or over confident always F-up?

Sierra looked like she was going to cry....

Donna in AL said...

Hi ya'll, I've been here all along but just lurking tonight.

Loved the blindside!!

Sydney said...

Brendan was clapping that you are out Tyson

Sydney said...

Being outfoxed by an idiot.... define idiot Ty!

monty924 said...

LOL, I was so happy that I couldn't even spell I'm doing the happy dance, lol


AWESOME! Westies just wait, you'll love it. I want to see Coach's reaction next week at the top of the show, lol, lol, lol.

Patti H said...

Tyson misspoke, should of said I am an idiot.

lynn1 said...

Hey Tyson guess you never heard that old saying what goes around comes around! LOL

becky said...

But she didn't cry, Sy. I loved the look on her face when the votes for Tyson started coming in. Disbelief. If the "dragass" is smart he will begin to worry. I like that he and Debbie realize they are in deep doggy do.

I hope Coach comes unglued at camp because they "betrayed" HIM, the honorable warrior.

Did you see how Brendon laughed! And Tyson calling them sneaky bastards.

And Sydney, I can't imagine going out in public with Tyson.

sizzie said...

Oh that was fun ! I don't know if they even know Sierra to like her or not...it is all the mob mentality of liking who the leader tells them to. They should show this episode when teaching kids about peer pressure.

monty924 said...

Well, this was a priceless night of Survivor. When the vote was counted my phone started ringing, lol. My brother and I are totally on the same page with this show.

Tyson, who's really the idiot here? Sierra outsmarted you big time or maybe it was Stephen... who cares, lol.

I'll just have to catch Tyson's one-liners at Ponderosa now. Great! Coach NEXT!!!

joy n said...

Did you see in the previews that Coach yelled at Sierra, "Where is your loyalty?". This from the guy who told her earlier he would not save her.

Coach may have needed new britches for that walk back tonight.

becky said...

I was looking for the Ponderosa (sp??) site and came upon another one where people were saying how much they hate Coach.

The best of the ones I read was:
"beasley commented on How Much Do You Hate Coach?:
I have a difficult time believing that Coach has been in 7 or 8 life-and-death situations. Certainly more than eight people have wanted to kill him."

joy n said...

How perfect is that, Becky? HeHeHe!

meb said...

Just finished watching and YAHOO! My girl Sierra is still in it! I thought we were a gonner tonight! But we live to fight another week!

lynn1 said...

Jackie,
I am looking forward to reading your review at Tvsquad later tonight.
Please don't hold back on epressing your glee that Tyson got blindsided!
Survivor fans everywhere cheered tonight. To paraphase one of Tyson's lines tonight, I think maybe his Mother and Dad felt bad for him! LOL

Dusty said...

Woo hoo! Tyson is gone.. hopefully next week it will be coach.

You guys get me so fired up waiting to watch it here on the west coast!

Laurie said...

I haven't read any comments yet and just finished watching the show. I think this is the first time I've waited to see how the show ends before reading about it.

Whoo hoo! What a great ending. I love how the smug faces paled as Tyson got the boot. Of course, his attitude continued but who cares. He is gone and the coach may be right behind him. Yes! Yes! Yes!

dla said...

YAAAHOOOO!!! Tyson is GONE!!

Happy happy happy dance on the West Coast tonight! :)

Caroline said...

I'm super happy that Tyson got the boot last night...but I'm surprised that no one on here commented on the fact that after everything it was ERINN who flipped the tribe. After her argument with Sierra she told the camera that everything Sierra said was right, and they're so stupid cause she (Erinn) was gonna flip the game. And boy did she ever. Stephen was extremely helpful convincing JT...but it was Erinn that got the idea in Stephen's head. Guess Timbira forgot how horribly they treated Erinn for weeks, but she certainly didn't forget. Who would have thought she'd have the moves for this...but major props to her.

I really hope Sierra lets Coach & Debbie beg all the way up to tribal council and then still votes one of them out. How dare they expect her to give them another chance when they weren't the least bit generous to her.

ORKMommy said...

As much as I hated to see Tyson go, because he's my guy in the pool, I was so glad to see Coach's plan go up in smoke! Can't wait for next week to see how he reacts!! The game is gettin' fun now...

My mom & I are heading to The Ponderosa with Tyson. At least we're in good company...

joy n said...

Tyson is actually acting "nice" at Ponderosa. Surprising since he was such a jerk in the game. He and Brendan are getting along like buddies. But I am wondering if Tyson is trying to gather votes for Coach or Debbie, just in case. I don't trust this guy and I despised his unnecessary mean-ness towards Sierra.

Caroline is right. Errin deserves mucho kudus for pulling this off last night. She and Sierra ought to pull together. Never underestimate women!

joy n said...

Jeff's blog intimates that Sierra is his girlfriend. I'm not sure if he's joking.

Caroline said...

Joyn...thanks for the heads up about the blog. It does sound possible that Jeff is dating Sierra, or maybe she's dating someone who works with him or something.

Just one question...I only started reading his blogs like 2 wks ago...any idea who Serena is? I was completely lost there.

becky said...

If you have not read Jeff Probst for this week, check it out. Go to the bathroom first because you will wet your pants laughing.

http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2009/04/jeff-probst-b-2.html

joy n said...

A commenter mentioned that Serena is a friend of Jeff's. Don't know if that commenter is right. I wondered who the heck she was, too.

Sydney said...

JoyN-- Sorry, I'm a little confused...Jeff's girlfriend or Tysons?

Sydney said...

OOOh Caroline -- I like your plan for Sierra!

sizzie said...

I went to google and put in 'survivor serena jeff' for the search and a lot of sites came up. I didn't read them all, but you many people are curious about her.

dla said...

I also searched to find out more about Serena, and cannot figure out if she is an "imaginary" friend or an actual person. I didn't spend too much time on it, but there seems to be a lot of speculation and inquiring minds want to know.

joy n said...

Syd, Jeff's girlfriend. He sort of sounds like he's saying she is, but I'm not sure if that's just tongue-in-cheek or if he's serious.

Sydney said...

Are we talking the show's SIERRA or someone names SERENA?

In reading just the comments here, seems both are used here, and interchangably. I can google both but I am trying to do a paper today! Just asking in case someone can set this straight. Thanks. :-)

Sydney said...

OK, I could glean this much --Serena is someone Jeff mentions in his blog, giving "her" opinion on the show. He refers to her as my friend Serena once. Then someone commented that Serena is an imaginary friend Probst created when he first started his blog.

If you google Jeff adn serena you will see further down in the things that come up that Jeff hosted something Serena Williams was on. I don't think they're going out, or that he asks her for constant comments on the show. He may have borrowed her name for the imaginary friend. And all this might be wrong, but I would not put it past Probst to come up with something to get people talking on the boards.... he succeeded!lol

joy n said...

Syd, Serena is mentioned as a friend, but In his blog for episode 10, he also mentions Sierra. I'd have to go back to read it again but he mentioned Tyson's remark during that episode about Sierra's boy friend can't be very cool.

Okay, I went back and re-read it. This is what Jeff wrote:

BTW: Tyson, you're wrong - her boyfriend IS pretty cool. Mess with him, you mess with me and you don't want to mess with me. Okay, check that, maybe you do want to mess with me, so I'm asking, please don't mess with me.

Maybe serious, maybe joking? I'm not sure.

Caroline said...

Thanks to everyone on the discussion about Serena. I guess we'll just keep an eye on Jeff's blogs and see what comes of it. He certainly did get all of us talking about it though.

Too bad we have to wait until Thurs to see Coach beg for Sierra to save him. I can't wait!

Kim Davidson said...

This is all way after the fact because I just watched season 18 online. In his blog Jeff is constantly referencing the potential for Sierra to end up married to a "Survivor" producer. I don't think he means himself. I think he means she actually DOES end up married to one, and so that explains all of his comments along the way, and his comment directed at Tyson. I.E. Jeff can naturally be presumed to be good friends with the producer, whoever he is.

I am breathing a sigh of relief that Serena might be an imaginary friend. LOL. Yes, he does refer to her as a friend once, but he also says something about going to bed in connection with her. I would love it if she's just a blog device and not an actual person. LIKE IT MATTERS. Like I have a shot at him. Still--helps to keep the fantasy alive. ;)
