Survivor: Samoa Episode 2 Blog Party Post - 9/24



The show is about to begin here on the East Coast. As it airs, I'll update this post with any major happenings. However, the real action is in the comments section! Please feel free to join in with your thoughts while having fun with friends. Late tonight my show review will be posted on TV Squad.

Ack. Evil Russell went looking for a hidden idol just in case there was one ... and found it. He's allied with Jaison.

Galu won immunity and fishing gear. Ben (Foa Foa) was kicked out of the challenge for cheap shots. Good Russell chose Yasmin to visit camp.

Mike was removed from the game due to dangerously low blood pressure after the challenge.

Evil Russ's target Betsy was voted out.

Survivors Ready? I stole that line...

Becky said...

Hey, I am here! Thanks, Jackie. Hope you have had a good week.

How is Mr. V? (Do you mind if I call him that? After all, he is a true gentleman and deserves our respect.)

Have you seen Roofus lately?

Lisanne said...

Yay, finally saw my pool pick. Sure it was only the intro, but that's like tons more than last week.

:)

Jackie said...

Vincent is probably irked at me because I won't let him in my lap right now. But other than that, he's fine. If he had his way he'd be on me around the clock. But I have to take notes on the show.

I haven't seen Roofus, but I didn't go to work last week and have been going in before the dawn this week.

Delee said...

LOL The hood is not the woods!!!

Sydney said...

Did anyone answer if there was an Exile Island? last time someone asked about it.

Delee said...

Please please please CBS make Russell wear some shorts...not his underwear...Just plain GROSS

Sydney said...

Why would he do that in front of everyone?

Delee said...

I am sorry that he found that II. Now he is safe....ugh

Lisanne said...

OMG. I have to admit Russell just made a smart move.

It must be my diet dr pepper talking.

Sydney said...

I see where all Russell's hot air comes from ... his big belly!

Becky said...

I like Jaison. I feel rather sorry for the hairdresser. She is really out of her element. Why was she walking so funny?

Darn, the Roach found the Immunity Idol.

monty924 said...

Unfrikkin believable. Hidden II without even a clue.

Lisanne said...

I cant remember from past seasons, but when they strand them with the clothes on their backs, do they eventually provide them with some shirts and such?

Becky said...

I read somewhere that there would be no Exile Island, that it has served it's purpose.

Delee said...

A 1st ? AR is 2 hours Sunday but it probably be delayed Football yuck!

Petals said...

Hey guys!

Delee said...

Hey Petals!!!!

Sydney said...

I like the purple teqam's face paint.

Becky said...

Hey, Petals.

Sydney said...

One purple gal is not wearing any-- what was her nickname. SHamoo?

Sydney said...

shambo

Delee said...

There are going to be some really sore peeps after that!

Petals said...

this looks painful!

Petals said...

Has Jeff ever had to "warn" the cast before?

Joe in NY said...

Hi everyone.

Sydney said...

that skinny guy from teh purple team (is it David?) is looking like an animal!

Joe in NY said...

wtf? They design a challenge with almost no rules and then they are surprised when people play cheap?

Sydney said...

I'm amazed that all the girls with breast implants don't run the risk of them bursting!

Petals said...

Syd - LMAO ("shamoo"). good one

Delee said...

Jeff has had to tell someone before not around the neck...forget which season or challenge...

Joe in NY said...

Petals!!! You're back!

Becky said...

Interesting challenge. Roach would have loved being the first in the history of doing something new on Survivor. It was getting nasty out there.

Joe in NY said...

Russell is an SOB, but he is playing the game hard (maybe too hard). You've gotta give him credit for actually looking around camp and being proactive. It'll be interesting to see who they vote off now...I'm guessing Mike

Lisanne said...

I knows its off topic, but missed what they said about A/R only caught something about starting line. \



Anyone catch it?

Joe in NY said...

I know everyone hates Russell, but I actually think Ben is a bigger bully. Remember he gave the throat cut to Marisa last week and then he intentionally tried to take out Good Russell's knee this week. He may be a sociopath! LOL

Becky said...

Hey, Joe. I decided to keep Roach Russell. He is so easy to dislike! LOL

Thanks for offering to switch. However, my name was drawn to be blessed with him, so I will stick it out.

Donna in AL said...

That was one nasty challenge! Why was it a reward AND immunity? It's only 7:30.

monty924 said...

I'm lovin Shambo!!

Joe in NY said...

OK, how dumb is she? (sorry.)

Becky said...

What a shame about Mike. I don't like hairdresser.

Sydney said...

GIRRL, what you doing talking like this? WHAT?????

Petals said...

Hey Joe! I took a walk on the wild side...I'm back to civilization now.

Petals said...

I love watching Russell! He is fun.

Sydney said...

signing her death warrant right now...

Petals said...

That is FUNNY! She looks like a fool.

Joe in NY said...

I'm with you, Petals. Russell amuses me. Ben is the one I hate. did he really just call her a hooker?!?!?!?

monty924 said...

Ben is a jerk with a capital J.

Joe in NY said...

I'm with you, Monty. Ben is a jerk AND a bully and I'm thinking a racist to boot!

Becky said...

I think Ben is a bully too. He was not sorry at all about being thrown out of the game.

Anonymous said...

What is up with the men wearing only their unnerwear? Didn't they bring swim suit trunks? Nothing more gross than men's dirty unnerwear. LOL cc

Jackie said...

Lisanne - I thought it was something about one team being out before the starting line. I could be wrong, though.

Brent McKee said...

Cannot stand Russell but Ben isn't one who should be talking about other people being trash - he is trash, and all his talk about good grammar doesn't make him any less trashy. To paraphrase Forest Gump "Trash is as trash does."

Petals said...

Yeah, Ben is a weenie. He may be a Missouri-bred boy, but I have no affection for him.

Delee said...

Mick is a super Throw...yum yum yummy!!!

Sydney said...

How does the woman with the long blonde hair have her hair looking so fresh and fluffy after 5 days????

Joe in NY said...

I'm guessing Betsy's a goner since they're trying so hard to make us think it's Ben.

I'm cheering hard AGAINST Ben. (Just to show y'all that I don't like all miscreants. :)

Sydney said...

Don't kick off my girl! The show will lose an interesting player.

They have been showing a lot of her tonight so maybe she IS going....

Lisanne said...

I wish there was some conflict in the other tribe. It seems like they only exist for the challenges.

Come-on Shambo lost part of the fishing gear, get mad! Then maybe a bit less Russell time.

Petals said...

Syd - maybe shampoo was her luxury item?

Donna in AL said...

Oh man Sydney, my pool pic was the second out last season so hopefully and I have Betsy also.

Sydney said...

Brent -- agreed!

Lisanne, pass the Dr. Pepper

Becky said...

Roach and Roache Jr. Guess I am going to have two look for a new avatar.

Sydney said...

monty924 said...

Lets all chant...

GOODBYE BEN!
GOODBYE BEN!

Joe in NY said...

Ben isn't even remotely funny.

Sydney said...

OH IT WOULD BE SO GREAT IF BEN LEFT

Delee said...

Sad so sad Betsy is gone.

Ben is such a punk!

monty924 said...

Bummer

Petals said...

Guess I missed something...what did Betsy do to get voted off? Over Ben?

Joe in NY said...

she took it with class. Wonder if Ben learned anything by watching...oh, what am I saying?!?!?!

Anonymous said...

Nooooo not Betsy!

Sydney said...

Stoopid people judging someone 47. Wait til they get there and see that you're not dead. The show just got less interesting.

Becky said...

I hope this tribe is wiped out except for Jaison. And I hope they don't win one challenge.

Joe in NY said...

Petals,

Betsy is just over 40. 20-somethings hate us all! LOL

Donna in AL said...

Shit! I am outta the pool again! I'll have to find a good one to join with now.

Becky said...

She crossed Russell the Roach and stood up to him. The rest of the tribe is following him like a little pack of idiots. He says squat and they pee.

monty924 said...

Well, goodnight for now. I'll have to watch this one again to catch what I missed tonight. Family's visiting, so I missed a ton.

Catch you all later!

Joe in NY said...

I've got to get back to my pile of tests! I've got about another 15 hours of grading to do....AAARGH!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Lisanne said...

Donna,

You can join Meb and I in cheering for Kelly.

She has been invisible thus far. And if she isn't seen then she can't be vot4ed out, right??

Petals said...

Geesh - I never thought of 40-ish as "old". This sux! I'm gonna be 37 again on my next birthday. For the 5th time, 6th time...no 7th!

SueGee said...

Jackie & all - read a TAR spoiler today that says first pair gone before they leave the parking lot!! And I found a map of the cities they are visiting numbered by pit stop.

Sorry to miss the party but I got home at exactly 6pm tonight, so I will just have to wait for it to come on here in 2 more hours.

WV came back while I was typing

Joe we will see you on Sunday for the big race!

Margo

Donna in AL said...

Thanks for the invite Lisanne, I haven't seen enough yet except no Russell or Ben! But I may join you and MEB later.

Laurie said...

Donna, you are welcome to join me with Yasmine. I haven't seen the show yet but its on in another 15 minutes.

From reading the posts, it sounds like the challenge was interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing it!

ML said...

Hello all. My gal in the pool Laura was only on a snippet from next week-at least she's safe. I'm sorry to see Betsy go; it makes you wonder what they're not showing when they're showing way too much bad Russell in BAD undies). She goes for no reason except potential weakness? She hasn't been a hindrance in any competition yet has she?

And to Joe in NY- 'miscreant' haha. I've been thinking that word a lot lately what with big brother and now Survivor, et al.

Someone get me a bag for Russell, no make it a giant burlap sack. UGH!

sizzie said...

Laurie, I can't wait to hear what you think of your girl Yasmin after this episode.

ChicMc said...

Didn't any of the men pack swimming trunks?

ChicMc said...

It looks like I once again owe yucky Russell for making my pool girl Ashley safe again this week.


WV despi
I despi the fact that I have yucky Russell to thank for Ashley still being on the island.

Anonymous said...

Watching the pre-season show on TVGuide, Jeff disclosed that there would be two immunity idols, one for each tribe, but that they would be in the opposing tribe's campsite. He said that if someone wanted to look for the idol, they would have to find a way to do so in the other team's camp. Since bad Russell got the other team's idol, I wonder if he can even use it to save himself?

chris said...

I have jaison in the pool
uh oh previews for next week seem to pit jaison against evil Russell.
That does not bode well.
that jasmin girl was all crazy.
too bad they could not vote her off.
not sure who I like
altho mick is nice too look at!

sizzie said...

Anon 1:11, what an interesting thought that is ! (about the hidden II perhaps only belonging to the other tribe members).

lynn1 said...

I hope the immunity idol that Russell found will not be of any use to him but only for someone on the other tribe. That would be sweet.
I was beginning to think that Russell was a ringer sent in to fool the fans as well as the tribe members.
AS much as I don't like Russell I will have to give him props for looking for and finding the II. That was brillant and shows he understands the game even if he is a jerk.
Russell is an evil genius and Ben is a thug.
Oh yeah Zoetawny & my guy Mike is gone. I don't know if it is permenantly gone or just a few days gone. Either way his days are numbered or this season.
I had not formed any attachment to him so it was not a big deal to me.
I am just going to enjoy the the show and cheer for whoever suits my fancy on any given night.
I was sorry to see Betsy go. I think she could have been an interesting mental player even if not a great physical player.

Lars Eller said...

NO public displays of affection in the pool

Awww you might get mono..J/K
I missed last nights show, I've busy making the Hospital rounds.

Jackie many thanks

meb said...

Laurie, now that you have seen this episode, what did you think of your girl??? Hasn't she ever seen Survivor before. She goes over to tell them she's going to show them how to win a competition and then gets into a fight with one of their team. She may have found out a lot about them if she had just shut up and listened. Then she could have reported back to her group.

I have to admit Ben was and is a jerk and probably won't be long for the show.

I guess I'll never know who Lisanne and my pool member is. We're never going to get to see her. I know she was in the competition, but I didn't know who she was... too many blondes.

meb said...

Oh... the idol... right... They showed Yasmine read the personal note telling her it was there in a tree, then she doesn't bother to look for it cause there are too many trees???? I know Russell H has it anyway, but 'let's just not bother to look' ???

meb said...

joy n said...

I liked Mike. Hope somehow he gets to come back though he still wouldn't last long with his tribe anyway.

As much as I despise Evil Russell, I have to admit he's playing a hell of a game so far. Don't know how far it will take him. The man definitely lacks finesse. He's reminding me somewhat of EvilDick in how he gets in their faces. But if Fao Fao doesn't win a comp or two pretty soon, there won't be much of a merger later. The Galu aren't deaf, dumb or blind and if ER is still there for the merge, I'd bet he won't be there for long.

Ben seems to be ER with a physically mean side thrown in for good measure, making him worse at the moment.

Wish it would turn out to be true about Evil Russell not being able to keep that hidden idol he found. That just might burst his evil bubble a bit.

Now if only someone would weave him a grass skirt. Those skivvies are so far beyond gross and they're only up to day six. I'd pray to the Survivor gods to rid him of them except he probably has another "Sunday best" pair at the ready. We may be doomed for the season. UGH!!!

Zoetawny said...

Hi all!

First things first...I love the photos of Vincent you posted, Jackie. I hope you don't mind if I snag them. I'd like to have them to make some graphics for you one of these days. Vincent sure is a handsome fellow and sounds like he's very affectionate and loving towards you. I'm very happy you found a great companion.

Well, I hope this Survivor season isn't going to be "The Russell Show". I know... he's good for the ratings. Just looking at him disgusts me and when he opens his mouth I feel even stronger. I forget who has him in our pool...my apologies. ;)

My Mike is gone already...not missing him. I'm sure he would have liked to stay but I didn't see him going very far anyway. I'm curious to know if the applicants who are accepted have to have a physical? It might be a good idea especially for those over 40...or would that be age discrimination?

sydney...

Your comments are cracking me up. You're in rare form.

Ben needs an attitude adjustment, big time.

We have two (Russell & Ben) now to dislike, but who will we have to root for? I haven't picked a favorite yet, have you? I'm liking Mick but not sure if that's because he's nice looking and a doctor. ;)

Yasmine was a hoot comparing the "hood and the woods". I've never been in the hood but I don't think I could take the woods either, at least not without some good camping gear and a motor home. ;)

Sorry to see Betsy go. She seemed like one of the good ones but we didn't get to see her game play much.

All in all, it's going to be an interesting season.

OT...Did anyone watch "Flash Forward"? I recorded it since it's on at the same time as Survivor. It looks like my type of show.

Hope everyone here is doing good. Have a great weekend!

Later~

sizzie said...

Hi Zoetawny, good to see you here, and great graphic.

Sydney said...

Zoe-- we watched Flash Forward and loved the concept.

Sydney said...

Anon 1:11 -- oooh, that would be too good!

Laurie said...

Well meb and Sizzle, I wasn't overly impressed with Yasmin this week. I was already thinking she didn't "get it" when she showed up wearing little heels the first episode. I can understand why her team captain volunteered her to spend a day with the other tribe. I think they were glad to get rid of her for the day!

I wish we would see more of the other team. Maybe next week we will, since the previews showed Shambo complaining about the yoga going on.
