Survivor Samoa - 12/10 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.

No reward challenge -- Jaison won immunity. In the first tribal council, Dave was voted out.

Second immunity challenge -- Brett (Russell's new target) won. Monica was voted out.

I'm the first one here! I can't wait to see who gets voted off, and I hope it's not Russell!

Donna in AL said...

Double elimination tonight and I hope it is not Russell either!

Jackie said...

I wouldn't have said it a month ago, but I hope he stays, too.

joy n said...

Shambo really doesn't have a clue, does she?

monty924 said...

Hey all, it's good to be back at Jackie's for Survivor. Go Russell, er.. Go Mick!

With two going home tonight, it should be mighty interesting. :)

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie. Good to be with you guys again. Ohhhhh, I forgot this was double elimination tonight.

monty924 said...

Whoahhhhh. Jaison just outed Russel as a millionaire.

joy n said...

Jaisson's taking a whole lot of credit, isn't he?

Ooh, now the real backstabbing starts!

Donna in AL said...

Must be another blindside, they are playing it up that Russell is leaving tonight.

Becky said...

If he is as cocky as he has been, then Russell is in danger if he doesn't watch his mouth.

Shambo is is clueless.

monty924 said...

I likey Survivor Bowling! :)

monty924 said...

Good for Jaison. Now let's see some action back at camp.

Becky said...

These guys bowl like I do. At least I give my grandkids a lot of laughs!

Donna in AL said...

Natalie is such a sweetheart, standing and clapping for the winner!

Donna in AL said...

Does Russell still have an idol?

monty924 said...

Natalie is playing the perfect Social Game. In a season like this with Russell, its actually a brilliant strategy. She could eek this out to a million dollars.

monty924 said...

Yes, Donna.

monty924 said...

Russell is just blowing smoke.

monty924 said...

John is such a cutey. He looks like a baby without the beard.

Sydney said...

HI Survivors! We just got in from the tree lighting in our little downtown... just in time for tribal council...

Sydney said...

Jackie said...
I wouldn't have said it a month ago, but I hope he stays, too.

Dusty and Jackie, me too, lol!

Donna in AL said...

Do the numbers in the jury plus the 7 still in it, leave a F3 instead of a F2?

Sydney said...

That one cute guy -- he's gotten so little screen time. I practically have no idea who he is.. and it's day 33?

Donna in AL said...

oops, I am a few minutes behind, I paused for a couple minutes!

Sydney said...

Dave looks rather grim

Delee said...

OK get ready for Shamo's face!!!!

Sydney said...

RUSSEL-- not playing the idol! I mean, how many TC's do we have left that he can use it.

IT's Dave, not SHambo....they had her vote first

Sydney said...

Bummer, he's pissed.

Delee said...

WOW the tide turned how did I miss that?

monty924 said...

Laura looks like she might be sick right now. I love it! She always reminded me of Corinne, and I couldn't stand her.

Becky said...

They made a smart move getting out Dave instead of Shambo.

And what was that about Russell saying that he could beat Dave in the jury vote. Don't think so.

Sydney said...

why is no one voting Rusell off? Because they think he will poison the jury?

monty924 said...

Sydney, I can't remember a Survivor when someone got less airtime than Brett has gotten this season.

WHO is Brett?

Donna in AL said...

I had never even seen Brett until last week!

Delee said...

Remember how much we disliked Russell from the start! Little did we know he is the Master of this Game. But for how long? Only one idol left and he never wins anything but maybe he is just waiting!

Anonymous said...

When did Russell find the idol? I thought he was bluffing about that.

monty924 said...

Why hasn't Brett grown a beard by day 30?

monty924 said...

The invisible Brett won't be going home tonight!

Delee said...

That throws a monkey wrench in the decision of who goes home!

Becky said...

I think they have through the next vote to use the II.

Brett is safe. This is their last chance to get Russell out. Because of his game play (not his personality) I hope Russell plays the II tonight.

joy n said...

I'm kind of glad Brett won immunity. He's cute and he's nice. And now Foa Foa has to work a little harder.

Jackie said...

Anon - Russell found it after the reward picnic three weeks ago (or so)

Donna in AL said...

Brett can talk too!

monty924 said...

Uh oh, Monica get the axe tonight. She just let Russell know that he has the idol. She's digging her grave.

Sydney said...

is this a good strategy Natalie?

Sydney said...

I agree Joy about being glad cute and nice guy won, making everyone work. It turned the tides a bit.

joy n said...

The S**T may hit the fan!

monty924 said...

Monica is not being smart right now.

Sydney said...

Yay, his name is Brett. Some face time. Finally. WIth a face like that, veddy nicey.

STFU Natalie. Don't fry yourself right now at TC when he has an idol around your neck. I know she wants to destroy him for the jury

Sydney said...

Teacher student-- good observation Jeff

Sydney said...

dum dum dum dum!

(I'm not saying dumb, that's a suspense song)

monty924 said...

Whoa! I would have played it just to be safe!

Sydney said...

wow, Russel managed to scare them with that idol around his neck? He's pretty confident to not use it.

Donna in AL said...

Laura is still a bitch.

Becky said...

I would have sworn that Russell made a bad move. Monica lasted a lot longer than I thought she would or should.

joy n said...

You KNOW Russell's wondering who gave him that second vote!

monty924 said...

Monica didn't have the advantage of seeing how Russell got rid of all the women on Foa Foa when they crossed him. Too bad, for her!

monty924 said...

Donna in AL said...
Laura is still a bitch.
************

I'll second that!

Becky said...

Wow, this was a good show. Jackie, am I correct in thinking that Russell has just the next game to play the II?

Becky said...

Have some things to do before bed. Catch you guys later.

monty924 said...

I think he has until final 5 to play it, or is it final 6?

joy n said...

Brett will stay at the top of Russ's s**t list now.

Jackie said...

Becky - I think next tribal is his last chance

Donna in AL said...

Becky, not just this episode but the whole season has been over the top!
Do you think it is because of Russell?

monty924 said...

Great show! Thanks, Jackie for the place to hang out! :)

>>>>>>>>
I thought they said that he can use it until the final four.

Laurie said...

Sorry I missed the live blog. I was out enjoying dinner and chat with Terry in CA. We did think about you and wondered who was getting the boot!

I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm glad Russell wasn't voted out, either!

Anyone know the date of the Survivor Finale?????
Thanks

Sizzie said...

I missed the party here, it was a good show,though, and ran quickly with the two elims. Russell showed his scary side and I think there must have been even more of his anger than we saw. Russell can play the rest of them easily, it is himself that causes him problems. No one would have known you made a million or two million whichever it was, if you, Russ, hadn't told them. I am still pulling for him, and I like Natalie, too. Laura isn't making eye contact from her seat on the jury, and she still looks angry. That seems to say it was all personal for her, and that isn't a good way to play this game. If she hadn't been thinking so personally, she might have picked up on what Russell was doing and not been blindsided.

Tamajama,

Sunday, December 20th is the Survivor finale. :)

meb said...

Late in posting as usual, but have to get my three cents in.

I would have definitely had a plan with everyone to vote for Russell this time but with a second person's name to go if he did play the idol. If he played the idol, he would not have it anymore, and easier to get him out later (simple)..or if he had not played it, he would have been gone. (There's logic in that scenario somewhere). He had them running scared and they obviously can't think for themselves.

Shambo is still there! Monica couldn't stop talking...bad move!

Bet Russell plays the idol next TC... two people voted for him and he's not sure who.

Interesting article in 12/18/09 issue of Entertainment Weekly. "Who Will Win Survivor Samoa?" Dalton Ross gives his opinion of why each of the tribe members left on the island would win or not win. But he also lists Jeff Probst's take on each of them.

Natalie: Why she'll win - She's the Amber to Russell's Boston Rob-the nicer, prettier, more easily digestible option for vindictive jury members. Why she won't - She could still be seen as a mere coattail. Which she is. Odds: 3-1

Probst: She's played a very quiet but effective game. But if she makes it to the end, she will have to work hard to comvince the jury that she desrves the money.

Mick: Why he'll win - He was voted tribal leader even though he was totally unqualified and did nothing to earn it. Forshadowing, anyone? Why he won't - The anesthesiologist practically put us to sleep all season with his (lack of) gameplay. At some point you have to do something. Odds: 8-1
Probst: To win he'll need to face the jury, pull a mask off his face, and say "I was playing y'all."

Jaison: Why he'll win - One would hope the law student would know his way around a jury. Why he won't - His flat demeanor often seems robotic. Can robots win Survivor? Are they even eligible? And can we please get Robot Survivor into production immediately? Odds 10-1

Probst: If Jaison makes it to the end, he's capable of a very compelling argument as to why he deserves the million.

Shambo: Why she'll win - She went from Galu zero to Foa Foa hero when she switched sides. The impact of that move is undeniable. Why she won't - The "yoga-loving 90210" jury may respect the move, but not the player. Even Shambo's new allies don't seem to think highly of her. Odds: 20-1

Probst: Her betrayal of Galu combined with being on the bottom of Foa Foa makes it tough for her to win.

Brett: Why he'll win - He's made no enemies along the way, which I suppose is what happens when you never speak. Why he won't - Never has a player made it so far and been shown so little. A winner would never get the invisible edit Brett has. I'm not even sure the other contestants know who the hell he is. Odds: 15-1

Probst: Everybody loves Brett. If Brett makes it to the end, he wins. Period.

Russell: Why he'll win - No one has played the game better. Russell found three hidden idols and got swing vote Shambo to flip. Why he won't - Should the Super Survivor make it to the end, he will come face-to-face with his own personal kryptonite: one seriously bitter jury. Odds 6-1

Probst: He could easily make it to the finals, but can he get the jury vote? It's either a slam dunk or a shutout.

ML said...

Great article Joy N, thanks! I guess I agree except I think Natalie has played a good game. What some call just coattails is really just a smooth game. Her convincing the Galu girls to vote out Erik was the catalyst to the Galu downfall...one by one each week, and now only Brett (?)! and Shambo(?)!!! remain. Russell is great, however, he has to scramble for it. Natalie does not.
ML

joy n said...

ML, I agree that Natalie seems like a pretty good player to me, too. Those are pretty good odds she was given.

Sizzie said...

meb..why didn't I think of that??! You are so right, if the survivors had been smart, they would have forced Russ to play the idol...they might even not have voted for him, just made him worried enough to play it. It would/could have changed the game.

I think Natalie has played hard and those good players that left early are examples of how hard it was to stay. Nat did what they didn't, which was not upset Russ. We also don't know what she is really thinking.

Thanks for the article Joyn
