Survivor Samoa - 11/19 Episode Blog Party Post



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.

Reward, split into two teams -- Russell, Laura, Brett, Dave, and Natalie won. They get a flight to a nearby island with a waterfall, picnic, and a Palm Pre to take pictures ... hmm, that's a phone. Could there be more?

BWAHAHA! Russell found the THIRD idol!

Mick won immunity!

Laura is gone.

I have popcorn, peanuts and cold beer. I have a feeling tonight will be a good show.

I'm still rooting for our man Mick, Jackie, but I tune in mainly to see what Russell will do next.

Survivors Ready?

Delee said...

I am for sure...what will he do tonight!!!

Becky said...

Me too! Hey, someone remind me to go to TV Squad tomorrow. Jackie does such a wonderful job I think that we should all go over and comment. Let the big bosses know we appreciate her.

monty924 said...

Will John-Boy jump ship tonight? Me thinks he might. Just keep Laura from winning immunity!

Sydney said...

I'm here with freshly made -- YUMMY-- Guac and salty, crunchy chips and peanut butter chocolate ice cream! Not to necessarily eat together!

Becky said...

Shambo keep your mouth shut! Don't put the cart before the horse.

Anonymous said...

Wow this is intense! this challenge

Sydney said...

Duh, that was me, syd... not an anon

Sydney said...

If Nat falls they are out>????

monty924 said...

Natalie worked that challenge. I kept thinking she was going to fall out on her face. I know I would have. :)

Becky said...

Good, purple won! I think that Russell wanted this reward since he figures that a clue will be upcoming. Hope he does the impossible and finds the II again.

That comp looked like fun. I could see me doing that if I was 40 years younger!

monty924 said...

Ooo, my favorite chips and dip, Sydney. Passing you a cold one. How did your little squirrel make out? I didn't follow up on that thread so I hope alright.

Becky said...

I have fresh hot tamales to go with the beer and guacamole dip.

Becky said...

Jaison, keep your mouth shut. Looks at Mick. Now you just cooked Sambo's goose!

monty924 said...

Interesting. Monica wants John out, who would have thunk it? He wants her out. :)

Becky said...

Mick was shaking his head no.

Becky said...

OMG! Now play it!

monty924 said...

Unfreaking believable! He found it again, LOL, LOL, LOL

There's something very wrong with this picture.

Joe in NY said...

THAT IS TOOOOO FUNNY!!

Go, Russell.

Joe in NY said...

Seriously, Russell is a man among boys (and girls). Did you see him just dust Dave in the sprint and outwit him at the same time? Tooo funny!

Anonymous said...

How easy are they making this? Now he's getting pictures of it?

monty924 said...

GO Anybody But Laura!

Jackie said...

Argh -- It's thunderstorming here!

Becky said...

It's raining here and is supposed to rain all day tomorrow.

Come on Mick!

Becky said...

Good job, Mick!!!

monty924 said...

Yeah, Mick uses a little physics knowledge there and wins immunity. Our guy is safe tonight!

Becky said...

Anon, yes, he saw a picture, but so did four other people.

Sydney said...

Russell is losing his gut and I almost don't recognize Shambo.

Sydney said...

I can't believe Russell found the frigging idol again. I mean, how many trees and rocks are there where they are... They could have been anyhere. The producers. They must have made it pretty close to camp.

I know I'm late, but if Shambo smiles any bigger she's going to split her lip. Too funny. She is so happy.

Anonymous said...

A picture of a place where he had already found one.

Jackie said...

Dave saw the picture and even picked up the rock before Russell.

SueGee said...

Jumping in to yell "GO NATALIE" (we are still in the pool)

Life has been good and hectic - but even if I can only join you guys in real time once in a while - know that I read everything!!

Sue on the left coast

Becky said...

I dislike people who eat with their mouth open. That is a reason to vote against.

monty924 said...

Yes, John will flip. No one wants the purple rock!

Becky said...

Jaison talks like a lawyer.

Sydney said...

May I just say -- I'm confused?

I need to watch this one again.

But it's the BEST Show! I LOVE SURVIVOR... holding up after how many seasons? 14?

Sydney said...

Shambo has DOE eyes...

Becky said...

I hope, hope, hope they talked John into flipping.

monty924 said...

Here comes the purple rock, or will it? Someone will jump ship... will it be John or who????

Becky said...

Dave is full of bull. Why didn't he volunteer himself to be the one that they said they were going to vote against.

John, flip, don't chance having to draw a rock.

They should have known better than to trust Monica.

GOOD JOB guys! John just bought himself another week.

Becky said...

Oh, and Monica.... bend over and kiss your behind goodbye!

monty924 said...

Goodie, goodie gumpdrops! Laura goes bye-bye and Foa Foa has the numbers now! I love it!!!

Jackie said...

Erik's reactions are priceless.

monty924 said...

Very good episode of Survivor. Now, what will Russell do with his II? The numbers haved turned, but will Russell survive?

I think he will, but I'm still rooting for the unknown (Mick)!

Joe in NY said...

I think Dave is an idiot. He's the main reason Galu went from up 8-4 to down 5(or 6) to 4. And seriously? Your big move is to take a chance by drawing a rock? Chance is a big move? John made the big move - he guaranteed his survival by jumping. In an individual game, why would anyone who is safe take a chance on the rocks?

Just saw the preview: how much do you want to bet that they AREN'T talking about Russell? Notice they didn't show anyone mention his name because they want us to think it is Russell.

Becky said...

This is the third time this has happened... that the group going into the merge with the most votes ended up getting squashed. The second time was last year and the first time was with Ozzie's four person group.

meb said...

That was the best. Double Vote and Laura really got evicted! And John kept sitting there trying to act like he wasn't the swing vote. Loved it!

Anonymous said...

Russell lost Dave by running away before he found the right rock.

Anonymous said...

this is the best survivor ever!

Anonymous said...

I, too, would like to know if the squirrel made it? Hope so!

Zoetawny said...

Hey guys!

Just peeking in. Russell found the 3rd idol?! OMG! ACK!

If I'm reading right (fast) at least Laura finally got booted. I'm not sure why but she rubbed me the wrong way.

Jackie...

More thunderstorms? DANG! How does Vincent react? Hopefully nothing happens to your power. Oh, before I sign off, I'm almost finished with a Thanksgiving graphic for you so please check your emails.

Can't wait to see the show. From all the comments it was a good one.

Ciao~

TerryinCA said...

that Russell must be a plant...I cant believe they are hidden very well if he is the only one who finds it.
sour grapes, I know.

ML said...

Zoetawny I agree with you about Laura and she's my pool pick! I have actually been rooting for Natalie. I think she's an excellent player in every way, and rather subtle about it, too. This has been a great season so far- these people are really playing the game.

Jennasmom said...

Hello, everyone! I never get a chance to check in these days. Hope everyone is doing well.

Isn't funny how everyone HATED Russell in the beginning & now so many are cheering my Texas boy on? Becky & I may not be there in the end, but we are still in the pool!

Gabriela said...

Oh man, how intense was that elimination? I can't wait to ask Laura about that experience. If you guys have any burning questions or just want more scoop, Laura will be online taking questions today at 3:30pm ET/12:30pm PT. http://bit.ly/p71C8

See you there!

I was not a fan of Russell after he said he was a survivor of Katrina but I have to say I find myself cheering him on. He is a PITA but very entertaining and a great Survivor player.
It is a probably the kiss of death for Russell now that I am cheering for him.
I also would like to shout out to Jeff Probst that Russell is good for the show and much more entertaining than Coach ever was. Russell is a player and Coach is just mental.

Anonymous said...

This is definately the most intens season ever.

Like Russell hate him, he is the
best player ever.

Not only by finding the idols but also for the way he manages to get
people to do what he wants.

Galu has been great at comps, but not so great at actually playing this game. If nothing else, why haven't any of them noticed that whenever Russell finds a new idol, he always keeps it in the same place when he goes to the councils? His left lower pocket of his shorts. It has to be noticeable because of its shape and bulk. He's produced it from that same pocket every time.

Anonymous said...

He also takes it from that same pocket when he shows it to everyone.

Margo said...

***SURVIVOR POOL UPDATE***

IMHO All members of the original Galu tribe deserve to lose. What a bunch of idiots - even Shambo does not act like she wants to win. If by some miracle she does - she will turn and hand it off to Russell. CRAZY

Who is Brett? Have we seen him? Does he talk?

Anonymous said...

I know y'all have probably already covered this and I missed it, but I can not wait for Season 20 of the All-Stars now that I've seen what Russell has done on this season. It's going to be just like when Rupert came home, no one had seen his season, or knew his game play, only this time...oh man, these All Stars have a storm coming their way named Russell! I am so excited to see him do this all over again in January/Spring. Go Russell! You were made for this game!

Anonymous said...

Y'all are giving Russell way too much credit. Season ain't over yet.

Anonymous said...

I cannot understand why russell is still heavy whereas the others are fading away and always finding the idol. Very strange CBS. If he wins at the end I will know something was not right. anyone else feel the same

Stephanie said...

No anon on 11/24 (before me!) You are on your own! I am the one that can't wait for Season 20 so I can watch all the antics a second time around. CBS has 19 seasons of tried and true formula for this show. They do not need to spice it up by telling Russell where the idols are. The ONE strange thing is that 2 idols have been played and I don't remember them throwing it back into play after it's been played (yes, after someone left the game w/o playing it.) But then again, I didn't realize they weren't doing the start a fire challenge for tie breakers anymore-I guess that's been gone for several seasons now, I just didn't remember that.

Sydney said...

SQUIRREL REPORT: Just wanted you to know that I put up a post with pix and movies of the little squirrel I mentioned here. Thank you for asking again. She did indeed make it, though it was a harrowing time, She is now healthy and happy and growing up!

Please check it out, and leave a comment you were there if you'd like.
