Survivor Samoa: 12/17 Episode Blog Post Party



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.

Russell, Shambo, and Jaison won reward -- they go for a village feast/overnight visit.

Brett won immunity again. Can you say dark horse?

Shambo was voted out.

LOL You made sure you were here for this tonight...

HEY ALL!!!

Donna in AL said...

Hey Delee and Jackie!

Becky said...

Hey Deelee, Jackie and Donna! I can't believe this season is almost over!

monty924 said...

Hello All,

I've waited all day for 8:00 to get here. :)

Sydney said...

It's Survivor night! I am going to be soooo sad to see this season end!

(this sounds contrary but....So many of our shows have wrapped up, my husband had to remind me that Survivor was on tonight).

Delee said...

They never had the family come TONIGHT?

Becky said...

Do you think they will gang up on Russell tonight?

Delee said...

Interesting challenge

monty924 said...

I love this challenge. what is that game where you pull sticks out? It reminds me of it.

LOL, Shambo loves her mullet.

Becky said...

Hey Sydney and Monty!

Sydney said...

Jaison didn't do his very slowly.

Sydney said...

8 for Russell!

Becky said...

Purple is doing great so far.

Sydney said...

Sorry, Shambo is really annoying me right now.

Sydney said...

Ugh.. Jaison.. well, it's getting more toward the end. How many do you expect will stay up there?

monty924 said...

Ouch! 48

monty924 said...

LOL, Shambo's psychic

hehehe

Sydney said...

Hey Becky... and Jackie, Donna, Monty, Delee,

Sydney said...

Awwww. nothing for RUssell!

Delee said...

WOW Russell zippo!!

monty924 said...

There's Natalie's social game. She's such a sweetheart... and could skate to a million.

Becky said...

This was an interesting challenge. I thought that purple had it for a bit.

Delee said...

Russell Shambo and Jaison get the reward...

Donna in AL said...

I was hoping Natalie and group would get that challenge!

Becky said...

I think Natalie could do well too. I also think that her first selection for a team could be the kiss of death. Russell does not like for anyone to favor anyone over him. Wasn't Natalie one of his "dumb blonds"?

monty924 said...

This is where the preview came into play. If Brett, Mick and Natalie all go back to camp and bond... look out!

Becky said...

I bet Russell sets it up for Jasion and Shambo to be final three.

Donna in AL said...

Shambo has lost a ton of weight!

Becky said...

What did Russell say when Jaison mentioned final three? I didn't catch it.

Donna in AL said...

Mick must need to manscape since they are blurring the front

Delee said...

Oh Donna teehee!!!

Becky said...

I bet Russell snores up a storm. He shouldn't count too much on Natalie.

Delee said...

Avatar is going to be huge...but not sure if it is my cup of tea!

Becky said...

DONNA, DONNA, DONNA!!! I must be old, I didn't notice! Heck, who am I kidding, I am old.

Brett is cute. So is Mick. Mick has been wanting to jump ship for a long time.

Donna in AL said...

I think I might like Avatar. I like sci-fi movies.

monty924 said...

Mick has been wanting to. I bet in the end he sticks with Russell. The edit is never what it appears to be.

Lisanne said...

I may not like Russell much but you have to give it to him. He manages to wind them all around his fingers and make it seem as it is not just him playing out his personal vendettas.

Sydney said...

hmmm... what do with think about her still trusting Russell? And can't the others hear what they are saying? THe edit makes it look like Brett and MIck can hear it all.

Donna in AL said...

They are sitting too close to be talking game!! You know they are hearing ever word!!

Donna in AL said...

They are sitting too close to be talking game!! You know they are hearing ever word!!

Delee said...

Pigs ???

Becky said...

Jaison should be good at this. I don't think Shambo will do very well.

monty924 said...

Shambo puts a smile on my face. I don't know why but she does.

Delee said...

Dang Brett won

Becky said...

Ah youth and memory!

Sydney said...

Yay Brett!!! They should band together and get rid of Russell NOW!

monty924 said...

There goes Russell plan yet again! Brett wins II

monty924 said...

Aw, poor Shambo! :(

Becky said...

Ah, Jaison, voting out Shambo would be a mistake.

monty924 said...

If they do Sydney, he better play his idol. Tonight could be the night!

Becky said...

They really should get rid of Russell. But I bet he plays the II. Or he will if he is smart.

Becky said...

Jackie, what do you think?

Becky said...

If Brett goes to the finals then he will win. Who do you think should win the bonus money?

monty924 said...

Russell played that one too hard with Mick! They could decide to blindside Russell tonight.

monty924 said...

I'm voting for Russell to win the player's choice. He's been my favorite and has played the best game.

Sydney said...

Why WHY WHY would Shambo say I'm a traitor in front of the whole jury? Hat to eb unkind but here it comes... methinks she's an idj-yot

monty924 said...

That was pretty smooth out of Russell. He's smoothing Shambo's feathers a little.

Sydney said...

DAYUM that Brett is awfully cute. (Hubba hubba)

Sydney said...

Soooooo oconfident Russell is. I wish they would just get rid of him. WHY NOT? He will win in the end if he's sitting in there.

Becky said...

Shambo is blindsided! I would hate to have to go to the Ponderosa after what she said tonight!

Sydney said...

Poor thing, Shambo said she felt uncomfortable to the cameras but I don't think she expected it.

Dusty said...

It's upsetting to me that Brett keep winning immunity. I dislike him and I hope that he does not win.

I really think Russell should take it all!

Sydney said...

Hey someone who has Shambo's thick wild curly hair but has an actual cut and a dye job.

Becky said...

OMG!!! Does the entire family have the same hair style?

monty924 said...

Dave can roll his eyes all he wants, but Jaison did have a point. If you want to get rid of Brett before the final TC then you need to keep people who can beat him in the ICs.

By the way, I cannot stand Danger Dave Ball. ;)

Dusty said...

I'm sitting here in disbelief.... Shamboo got the boot! Wow, she was a Galu, so I guess that was a wise choice.

monty924 said...

the Ponderosa clips ought to be good.

Becky said...

Shambo's final message was very gracious.

monty924 said...

Aww, Shambo girl... I'll miss ya on Survivor. That was a nice last words there. <3

Donna in AL said...

Foa Foa HAS stayed loyal to the end.

Becky said...

I am going to go vote. Who has the address?

Donna in AL said...

She may be a kook but she had very sincere and understanding last words.

Jackie said...

I think if Russell goes to the jury with anyone but Brett, he'll win. If Brett goes with ANYONE, he'll win.

Becky said...

Foa Foa has stayed loyal. I know the first season Ozzie was on they were down to four members and went to the finals. But they got to four members when some jumped ship.

joy n said...

My computer went all kerflooey on me tonight. Think I got it fixed.

The one thing about Shambo's good-bye speech that got to me is her admiration for Foa Foa's loyalty when she showed none for Galu. The only difference between Galu's and Foa Foa's distaste for her is that Galu said it to her face and Foa Foa said it behind her back. That poor woman has no clue at all.

I was glad that Brett won immunity again. Why hand it to that cocky SOB on a silver platter? If he's going to end up winning, let him keep working for it.

mrs.whiggins said...

I now understand why Brett has gotten so little air time. They are down to the last six in camp and we finally hear what from Brett...Bible quotes! Then at the reward challenge both he and Natalie ask for God to hear their prayers to win the reward...always a bad move on reality shows. HE got you in the game, now win it on your own.

Hate Galo said...

lov dat reward challenge

Hate Galo said...

Why the crud can brett win EVERY CHALLENGE

monty924 said...

Hey Joyn,

I think Shambo broke her loyalty to Galu when they voted Erik off. She said so at the next tribal and she's repeated it in her confessionals and the Ponderosa clips. Laura, Dave and other Galu's did that... she didn't. She didn't vote for Erik (visa Galu's downfall).

I don't blame Shambo for flipping... I would have too in the same circumstances. She was on the bottom of Galu, so where can you go but the bottom of Foa Foa. At least they treated her with some kindness. If you have to be bottom of the totem pole, why not choose the totem pole that a little more to the liking.

Her post eviction vids on CBS confirmns my thinking all along that Shambo was a strange but unique individual. I'm happy that Foa Foa took her under their wing, and I've changed my mind about the fan favorite. I'm voting for Shambo. I don't think she'll win it, but she has my votes all the way.

***SURVIVOR POOL***

I can not believe we only have 1 episode left.
Does this not happen almost every year that one person wins several of the final immunity thus the best laid plans are knocked of track. Good for Brett for winning when he had to but I'm sorry to see Shambo go. I thought for sure she and Russell would be final 2. I can not believe that Foa Foa has remained intact since the split. It was 4 to 8 - now 4 to 1 WOW.

Hi

Natalie and Brett as a team worry me. If Brett wins challenge again
they must vote Natalie off, or they are in for big trouble.

Either 1 would have the jury vote.

Estelle

Jennasmom said...

This is one of the few seasons where I actually like all the remaining players. While I'm pulling for my boy Russell to win, I like Mick & Brett (what's not to like? As was said earlier, "hubba hubba"), Natalie is very sweet, and Jaison seems like a nice guy. But Russell just looks like he's just having so much fun playing the game. He never complains -- just schemes!

I'll be out of town for the big finale Sunday, so I'll have to avoid the results until I can get home to watch. You all have fun!

I haven't had much time to be online this season, but I want to thank you, Jackie, for another great job. Just want to wish you all safe & happy holidays. Guess we'll all have a little down time while we wait for "our shows" to start up again.

GO RUSSELL!!!!!

Jennasmom said...

Donna, love your Santa Kitty avatar. But Monty, I like YOURS even better. heh heh

Margo said...

If Russell is not in the final 2 or 3 whatever they are doing this year - Who do you think he would vote to win?

If Brett makes it cause he wins immunity again maybe him for game play?
If my Natalie (the girl in the yellow dress) makes it maybe her cause he did have a dumb blonde alliance with her from the start?
Jaison cause he won immunity when it was very necessary?
Mick cause he is easy on the eyes?

What do you think?

If Brett makes it to the finals Russell will not vote for him because he will resent Brett ousting him.

It won't be Natalie because he does not like women. Plus he already feels like she betrayed him by picking Brett first to be on her team.

It will not be Mick because he was one of the three on Natalie's team. He, in his Russell way, will feel that he betrayed him too.

That leaves Jaison to get Russell's vote.

monty924 said...

Well, the two Ponderosa clips this week are not very flattering of Laura and Kelly, but I figured they would treat her bad. On the surface at least.

If you watch Shambo's interviews with Lynette Rice of EW, she says that Laura actually gave up her hut/room to Shambo so she could have a shower and a bed.

The interviews are here:

I love Shambo!!!

joy n said...

Monty, I agree that Galu shot themselves in the foot voting out Erik and I know that Shambo was kept in the dark about that decision, as she was kept in the dark about many of Foa Foa's after that. She flipped because she didn't like Laura or the rest of her tribe. She felt disrespected yet I saw disrespect on her part sometimes, too. She has no social skills whatsoever and it showed every week as SHE isolated herself more and more. She was just as quick to pick the others apart behind their backs, too. She can say they (Galu) are an "immoral group of people" but when she has a chance to watch this season at home, she will have to say the same about the FF tribe. She will see their only intention ever was to use her. She will hear the things they had to say about her, hiding food in her hair, her stinking breath, the fact that she never shut up, that her kissing them made their skin crawl and lots of other comments. So I guess she would then have to say that they are immoral, too. This woman just cannot see for the life of her that she created a lot of their distaste for her, herself.

For her to say that she outplayed all of Galu is ridiculous. She flipped and Foa Foa needed a flipper. She only stayed as long as she did because Foa Foa (Russell) needed her votes as he stated. She'd have been long gone if they had not.

I thought Kelly was the main nasty girl towards Shambo at Ponderosa and just the fact that Laura knew Shambo hated her, but still gave up her room and shower says some good things about Laura.

I do agree that Shambo is a strange but unique individual. Just wish that she realized it. No one really showed any "loyalty" to her on that island yet she feels compelled to be loyal to them. If she thought her heart was broken before, wait until she watches the season. Russell will break her heart then.

This is, of course, IMHO.

joy n said...

As for Russell, if he makes it to the final 2, he deserves the win. I still dislike him a LOT, but he has played this game to the hilt. I just hope that Brett unnerves him at least a couple more times just to hopefully, knock at least a little of that cockiness out of his sails for a day or two. (IF that's possible.) He's come this far, partly, and only partly, because he's a great herder of sheep and he has been surrounded by sheep since day one. I just want him to have to work a little harder for it at the end.

Sydney said...

Can anyone tell me WHY no one has voted Russell out so they can win the million dollars? Yes he had an idol, but he was so confident he wasn't using it each time. Why not have the ballz to blindside him? Maybe next TC? If they don't get him out, he WILL win, deservedly so.

joy n said...

Also read in an RTVW interview that Shambo made that "Shambo Shack" apart from the others on day one. She separated herself from all of Galu right from the start.

monty924 said...

I'm pretty sure I won't make the Blog Party for finale... :( Well, at least on time that is.

So everyone have fun, and I'll catch up as soon as I get home. Sunday nights aren't good for my TV viewing.

Still hoping for a Shambo or Russell viewer vote. I think the Sole Survivor will surprise us.

Cheers!

joy n said...

Monty, if I came on too strong about my opinion of Shambo, I didn't mean to. I know a lot of people like her. She just irritates me.

From a People TV Watch article: Jeff Probst wrote how each of the 5 survivors left will be remembered.

Russell Hantz - Like him or not, he will go down as the greatest player of all time. Period.

Mike Trimming - He'll take his money, marry his fiance, and will most likely never be asked back on Survivor.

Natalie White - She will join Jenna Morasca, Danni Boatwright and Parvati Shallow as the fourth "hot woman" to win Survivor.

Jaoson Robinson - He will be regarded as the of the most well-spoken winners and will be remembered for keeping his integrity intact while playing a very dirty game.

Brett Clouser - As nice as he is, people will not remember Brett, Brett will not be asked back again and Brett probably won't care.
