Survivor Samoa: Episode 3 Blog Party 10/01



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. By the way ... my cold turned to bronchitis. Ack.

Galu won immunity and reward. Good Russell had a choice between comfort or functio. He chose comfort for the girls. He chose Shambo to go to Foa Foa.

Ben was voted out.

Jackie, be careful! We don't want you any sicker.

I am here with my dessert.

Petals said...

I am floating in the pool, alone on my leopard-print floating chaise....banana daquiri in hand.

Petals said...

Jackie - I haven't had a chance to tell you congratulations on Vincent - he is precious! And such a great name!

Delee said...

Sorry to hear you cold settled into something worse. At least you got it after your staycation. Feel better super fast!!!

Russell sure is an (_|_)

monty924 said...

I have brews and nachos for all. Like mine and Jackie's boy toy?

Petals said...

Monty - nice pic!

Petals said...

I like Russell...can't help it. He reminds me of someone in real life. I likey :)

monty924 said...

Definitely want to see more of Galu tonight. I have no idea who anyone is other than Good Russell and Shambo.

Lisanne said...

Galu?

You mean there is a second tribe?

Delee said...

Boy can R talk anyone into anything!!!

Petals said...

Lis - I know, right? What other tribe? This is the Russell show.

monty924 said...

Trouble in not-so-paradise. I love it, lol!

Becky said...

Petals said... I like Russell...can't help it. He reminds me of someone in real life. I likey :)

Petals, no offence, but your taste is in your mouth. LOL

My avatar if for Russell, because that is what he is in my book.

Lisanne said...

He said "Someone told me..It wasn't Russell"

Wake up girl!!

How can they not see his evil?

Delee said...

I know my pool guy is on what team? I do not think he e_ists!!! Do not think I have seen him unless challenges count.

Donna in AL said...

Russell is funny to watch. Why would a millionaire oil man not have that missing tooth fixed?

Donna in AL said...

Where did that girl get my 70's volleyball socks?

monty924 said...

Okay, there is one chic on Galu that reminds me of Corrine. The one that said "there are fish in the ocean" last week. Anyone else see it?

Delee said...

Ben better behave

monty924 said...

Cool, a reverse Rubics cube. I hated that thing. :)

Delee said...

So they are combining reward and challenge this year? I do not like that!

Petals said...

This is soo girls mud-wrestling...Who came up with these challenges?

Tessa said...

They are really making these challenges physically brutal.

Becky said...

Deelee, is your avatar you person.

Becky said...

Well, Ashley is going home.

Delee said...

Galu again...now for Russell to plot and plot

monty924 said...

I hate it too. Much better with two challenges each week.

Delee said...

My avatar is Russell gee whiz Becky

Lisanne said...

Yay Galu won and I finally saw my pool pick Kelly.

monty924 said...

Bet Shambo doesn't make Yasmin's mistake!

Tessa said...

Comfort vs function. Seriously, comfort? They may regret that later.

Petals said...

Who has Russell in the pool? I didn't join, but I'll take over cheering for him. I think he's fun.

Donna in AL said...

I don't like the combined challenges either! Why did they mess it up?

Petals said...

Mick is cute...

Delee said...

I think they are doing that so we can see more of Russell and his scheming ways...ugh! Plus to show when other team member is with the other tribe. I do not like it!!!

monty924 said...

Now that's what you do when you go to the other camp. Go SHAMBO!

Tessa said...

There is still a half hour left in the show. I don't like the challenges combined either.

Becky said...

I have bad Roach Russell.

Petals said...

Still nearly an entire pitcher of banana daquiri left.

monty924 said...

Oh, Russell, Russell, Russell!

Petals said...

Becky, can I cheer Russell for/with you?

Delee said...

Goodness gracious R has swim trunks on...my eyes can see again!!!

Tessa said...

The word of a snake. Run far, run fast!

monty924 said...

Russell is unraveling! Now he's told Mick about the idol. D U M B!

joy n said...

Russell's cockiness may be starting to unravel his plans. We can hope!

Delee said...

Just clicked in my brain...Samoa and big earthquake...Survivor got lucky it did not happen while they were filming this or All-Stars

sizzie said...

Finally made it here. Now I will have to watch the recorded show.

joy n said...

The crew was still there, according to RTVW, but none were hurt.

monty924 said...

I was thinking that myself earlier today... about Samoa. Horrible tragedy for those who live there.

monty924 said...

I'd love it if Ben went tonight. No Ponderosa for Benny Boy.

Delee said...

If I was Shambo I would report false stuff when she gets back to Galu...

joy n said...

I'd bet Fao Fao got those new duds because of Russell's filthy undies.

monty924 said...

Russell is loving this. Jaison is taking on Ben and it may come back to bite him. Hope not!

monty924 said...

Dig your hole deeper and deeper, Ben!

Petals said...

Oh puleeze! Ben is right, that is SUCH the race card being played. We don't need a history lesson, this is a game.

Delee said...

So if Jeff thinks Russell is in trouble of being voted out...would he ask about the IIdol? He did not ask tonight HAHA

Ben is gone!!!

Becky said...

Good, Nasty Ben is gone!

monty924 said...

C-ya Benny!

Lisanne said...

Oh no, with Ben gone, they may realize who in the camp is truly the evil one.

Margo said...

I hope Jaison is not going home.

joy n said...

Well, chalk one up for Jaison!

Russell isn't quite as smart as he thought he was. And he has to be careful because Jaison knows he has the hidden idol. This is getting good now. It's a srart anyway.

monty924 said...

In Betsy's interviews, she actually took up for Ben... go figure!??!! She said he had time to grow up.

monty924 said...

Off to do the dishes. Night guys!

joy n said...

Even Russell voted for Ben to go. Vote was 6 - 1.

Anonymous said...

I liked Jaison until tonight. If someone threatens to quit he should be gone. They messed up there. They got rid of someone who wanted to be there and kept a quiter. Ben would of got on my nerves too but what Jaison threatened was childish.I'm over the quiter.
Russell has grown on me, he is playing and he is entertaining.

entitled to your opinion, P.

Sydney said...

Hey Gang, I decided just to watch the show and relax for a change... no typing all the way through it, missing half of it as I do. But what I missed doing that was... you!

Jackie, ugh. Feel better. Vincent, go get her some tea with honey.

ChicMc said...

I liked that Jaison stood up for his principles, but why did it take him so long?
Why didn't he say anything during the tribal council at which Yasmine was present?

Can't believe that my girl Ashley scraped by again.

She did a much better job at the challenge than Ben did.
Ben never did perform well at the challenges anyway,IMO, may as well vote him out.

Anonymous said...

For the first time Russell didn't
get his way.
Wonder when the 2 other guys are going to figure out he is playing them both.
Would love for him to find out his idol is no good, because it belongs to the other tribe,

Estelle

sizzie said...

The Immunity Idol that Russ has is interesting to me. I know that TC is much longer than what we see, so maybe Jeff asked for it and since it wasn't part of what happened last night it didn't make the air show. But, I don't think he would have because he hasn't announced officially (that I know of...could have missed it) that there is/are II. I wonder if the II Russ found has the other tribe's name on it anywhere? What if it can only be played by one of the other tribe members? Probably not. I loved the shot of Shambo lying half in the tree 'looking for firewood'. Again, no one on that tribe seemed to think it odd that someone was climbing into that tree.

My wv is suber Jaison has a suber speaking voice.

Becky said...

To ANON 9:07... Jaison said that he was going to tell some of the others that he was going to quit, but he had no intention of doing so. Why is what he did so different from all the lies and deceit that Russell has shown?

Russell may be playing the game, but I do not find him entertaining or amusing. I think what he is displaying is his true personality, a nasty person to the bone.

WV siumbeye -- Siumbeye, Ben. Don't let the door hit you in the behind on the way out.

meb said...

Jaison threatened to quit, but that was just playing the game to confuse the person he told. He later told "us" that he wouldn't quit. Just trying to cause confusion on where he stood. I like him.

Still don't think I would know my pool choice, Kelly. Haven't seen her enough to tell who she is.

Lisanne, I agree with you... is there really another team. Do I really have a pool gal Kelly. Although I guess I shouldn't complain. As long as they don't show them much it means they're still in the game. We may win the game without ever going to TC.

meb said...

Becky, how do we manage to agree with each other and do it as the same time... I was writing the same thing as you while you were posting.

sizzie....I too am curious about the idol issue. Since no one from Foa Foa has been to the Galu camp, it has not been "officially" announced to the Foa Foa tribe (via scroll) that there is a "Foa Foa" idol in Galu's camp. Therefore no one from Foa Foa has had an opportunity to get "their" idol therefore Jeff does not ask if anyone would like to use the idol at TC. I REALLY hope that it turns out that Bad Russell can't use the one he found because it is Galu's idol and I hope that happens when he pulls it out to use it to save his butt at TC and he goes home because of it. In all fairness, I think that they should put another idol in the Foa Foa camp for Galu to find since Russell has theirs (and maybe they have and we just don't know it yet). May not matter anyway because at the rate they are going, Galu may not ever get a chance to visit Foa Foa!! And I guess this would also bring up the question, what if they have a tribe member swap and bad Russell goes to the Galu tribe. Would the idol that is (assumed) no good to him now, be validated by the fact that he is now in the Galu tribe?? Too many questions surrounding the idols at this stage.

I really hate the Russell show. IMO, it does not make for "good TV" and this is the only season where the thought of not even watching because of a cast member has crossed my mind (well....I take that back. Last season with Coach made me think that too).

And I hate the fact that they bill Russell as an "oil company owner". He owns a trucking company with tanker trucks!!

Laurie said...

Finally, my turn to watch Survivor! Sure, I know who gets the boot but I don't know how it happens.

AlbGlinka said...

I really appreciate KK in AL's last comment because I've been feeling the same thing. I love Survivor, but watching a sociopath at work is not my idea of fun, and I also am completely unsurprised that he does not own an "oil company". The confusion surrounding the idols also is frustrating, though I have to give Russell credit for finding it, then again, lots of sociopaths are smart or at least have street smarts.

Hope you're feeling better, Jackie!!!

Anonymous said...

Even though he owns a trucking company, could be that the name of his company is "blah-blah" oil company therefore the "oil company owner" title is correct, but I agree that it is misleading. And I agree that the idol thing is confusing. KK in AL brought up some good points. Wonder if production is just as confused as we are about what to do. I wouldn't think thay planned on someone finding the idol in their own camp, but one would hope that they had a plan for any circumstance. As much as I despise the guy, I will reluctantly give him kudos for being proactive and finding it too.....Fred

Dusty said...

I don't know if I'm right or wrong, but I watched the preview show for Survivor and Jeff announced that there would be an II at each camp for the other team. So, the Foa Foa II is located on Galu, as Galu is located on Foa Foa. I have a feeling that Russell's will not work for him because it's for the other team. But, like I said, I don't know if I'm right or not!
