Survivor: Nicaragua - Season Premiere Blog Party
The season premiere is about to start here on the East Coast. For the premiere, I'll be posting the major events here in this entry as it airs. Since I won't be writing up the episodes for TV Squad this season, I might play around with live-blogging the show itself or another format down the road. Not to worry -- we'll always have the blog party going on! All the real fun is in the comments section -- everyone is invited to join in! Just treat each other with respect ... feel free to mock castaways who might deserve mocking!
Zoetawny has made a new show blog logo for us to rock in the new season. That's because she herself rocks. But we know that.
Margo has set up the blog pool. If you didn't make the cut, feel free to cheer on the castaway of your choice! Here's her list (remember, it's MARGO calling 'em "oldies," not ME).
Espada Tribe: (Oldies but Goodies)
Dan Lembo - Sydney
Holly Hoffman - Merrilee
James “Jimmy T” Tarantino - SueGee
Jane Bright - PDXGranny, Big Ed
Jill Behm - Delee, Monty924
Jimmy Johnson - Ben
Marty Piombo - Jackie
Tyrone Davis - SharonS
Wendy DeSmidt-Kohloff - Gaylos, Auntie Leigh
Yve Rojas - Jennasmom
La Flor Tribe: (Young-uns)
Alina Wilson - Lisanne
Ben “Benny” Henry - Laurie, Dusty
Brenda Lowe - Lynn1, Margo's Mom
Chase Rice - Terry in PA
Judson “Jud” Birza - ML, Zoetawny
Kelly Bruno - Catonine, Rbennie
Kelly Shinn - MEB
Matthew “Sash” Lenahan - Nana in NW, Donna in FL
NaOnka Mixon - Margo, Donna in AL
Shannon Elkins - JoyN, Becky
Brenda (La Flor) found the medallion of power (new) and they're dividing the tribes by age. It would mean power down the line for her tribe or they can take flame and fishing equipment instead. What they don't choose, the other tribe gets. Probably a wise decision, they chose the fishing gear.
Espada made their own fire.
Kelly B. with her prosthetic leg is already a target on her tribe. They're worried about sympathy votes at the end and her ability in challenges.
After the first night, Jimmy Johnson isn't feeling so hot and says it's harder than he thought.
There are hidden idols once again -- two girls on La Flor found a clue.
If Espada uses the medallion of power, they can have an advantage in the immunity challenge. If they use it, then it goes to the other tribe. They're confident they won't need it in this challenge -- filling buckets of water from gutters, puzzle.
La Flor won immunity. Uh-oh. Wendy was voted out. Good, I think she would have driven me crazy and I'm not even in Nicaragua!
