Survivor: Nicaragua - Sept. 22 Episode Blog Party Post

survivor,jackiestvblog

Survivors Ready?

Welcome one, welcome all! It's the second episode and the blog party is ready to start! Everyone is welcome to join in with comments as the show airs here on the East Coast or even later in West Coast time.

I may or may not be here tonight as a huge line of storms is coming this way. If I'm here, I'll be posting commentary and major happenings right here in this post as the show airs. If I'm not here, then I'm sitting in the dark watching the lightning outside. If that's the case, carry on!

Wait ... I know y'all like to carry on anyway!

Woohoo! The older tribe won reward and immunity! They chose fishing gear over a tarp for their reward.

The weather is wicked here. I may still be lost.

Shannon, the big-mouthed good-looking schemer, was voted out.

Merrilee said...

in 5 minutes I have pop the popcorn, poured a glass of diet coke, opened the peanuts and plopped my butt on the couch and typed this post! How is that for the fastet time!

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I think I will skip the swimming tonight. We have had 11 1/2 inches of rain at my house since Saturday.

Merrilee said...

Becky~
you are the pool! lol

Becky said...

Jackie, hope the storms skirt you. I dislike the two jerks who are so bound and determined to get rid of Jimmy J.

Becky said...

Merrilee, we are beginning to think so! Fortunately we are not flooding at our house. Won't have to water the lawn again until November.

Merrilee said...

oh no! If the mature tribe looses tonight I think my pool girl, Holly, is going home!

Merrilee said...

What the hay?
My pool girl has gone off the deep end!

joyn said...

Becky, our guy Shannon came off as a bit sexist last week. Hope he changes his attitude.

That was just plain mean what she did with the shoes.

Becky said...

What is with sabotaging your own team? Not smart. Not real smart to wear dress shoes when you are going to Survivor, but not smart to ruin a pair of your team members shoes either. Bringing a pair of $1,600 shoes to Survivor is S-T-U-P-I-D.
Why isn't Jimmy T. out trying to catch fish? He is a fisherman. Guess he feels that sitting on his rump and finding fault with Jimmy J, who is at least trying to accomplish something, is his calling in the game.

Merrilee said...

it's the work of sabutors I say!

Jackie said...

That looks like a knee replacement scar on Dan (Brooklyn).

The weather's getting wild here ... no skirting.

Eep.

Becky said...

What is with these people this year? It usually takes a while before they begin going looney tunes.

Merrilee said...

suck it up girl!

Merrilee said...

They sure picked winners from the nut tree this season

Sharon S said...

hang on tight Jackie!

What is with the super nutty players this year? Maybe they were supposed to be the rest of the big brother cast with Rachel?

Merrilee said...

go jimmy, go!

Merrilee said...

come on older tribe!

Merrilee said...

yeah!!!!! whoop whoop! Older tribe

Sharon S said...

That's my pool boy Tyrone!

Becky said...

WTG Golden Oldies!

joyn said...

Go ESPADA! YAY!!!

joyn said...

Wonder which fruitcake they'll send home?

Joe in NY said...

I think they should try to get as many white players to the end as possible...I hate reverse racism nonsense. Racism is racism. You wanna bring all the minority players to the end. How would it sound if Jimmy Johnson wanted to bring all the old white men to the end...

joyn said...

I agree, Joe.

Hilarious!!

Merrilee said...

we are going to play the " I don't have the idol" game.

SueGee said...

Splish-Splash I made it for at least a minute or two!! Hope everyone is comfortable and enjoying watching the show! I know I will (in 3 hours LOL)

Meanwhile, its back to making dinner for me! Anyone for some Trader Joe's Orange Chicken??

Sue (on the left coast)

Merrilee said...

ahhh.. shades of BB's secret alliance.

Lisanne said...

why is it always the women out first. Off with the men I say!

Becky said...

Oh-oh, looks like our pool boy is in trouble,JoyN. I didn't like his sexist remarks last week.

Merrilee said...

Lisanne said...

because the women can't form an alliance because of jealousy.

Merrilee said...

holy moly!!

Sharon S said...

wow -- no secrets

Joe in NY said...

They are self-destructing for no reason.

Merrilee said...

stand back gang! The bucks are marking their territories!

Joe in NY said...

OMG! Does he WANT to go home?

Joe in NY said...

That guy is the worst contestant ever!!!

joyn said...

Oh, Shannon, sexist and homophibic!

Sharon S said...

This is hilarious!

Merrilee said...

oh good lord! vote the whole tribe out!!

Joe in NY said...

OMG, this is the best opening tribal council ever. This is a tribe of total big mouths.

Becky said...

Shannon is an A$$. I won't be sad to see him go. Boy, this team is imploding.

Sharon S said...

I hope they all wise up and get Shannon out...

Joe in NY said...

Apparently this whole tribe has never seen Survivor. You are supposed to keep your head down early in the game. LMAO. Too much fun

Sharon S said...

I don't foresee any particular person being voted out helping to restore unity here....

Joe in NY said...

Why did he even ask if the racist guy was gay? There is no one on the youngster tribe to cheer for...well, Fabio makes me laugh, but MY GOD I hate half of them.

Sharon S said...

yes....they wised up

Merrilee said...

bye bye shannon

Joe in NY said...

Do you think he'll actually learn to keep his mouth shut after this experience?

I mean the gay comment was completely unnecessary and accomplished nothing. If he just shut up through that council, he may have survived.

Becky said...

At least Shannon was an equal opportunity basher. Last week it was women, this week it was gays. Bye, bye. Now I can up and up cheer for the Oldies and especially Jimmy J.

Becky said...

Sharon S said...

If he'd kept his mouth shut, people wouldn't have known just how much of an idiot he is. He makes Fabio look smart.

No Joe. He is young and dumb. He won't get it for a few more years.

joyn said...

Well, that was quick for our poolboy, Becky. I can't complain though. Last season I won with Sandra and got to top 3 on BB with Enzo. Besides now I can freely root for the Espada gang. I'm an oldie too.

Joe in NY said...

Merrilee,

I agree, it was more of a rhetorical question.

Sharon S said...

I know this is a delayed thought, but who would actually bring $1600.00 shoes to survivor?

Joe in NY said...

he's an ass.

But I'm beginning to think Nyanca (sp?) is just as big an ass. She hates everyone but the racist guy.

Sharon S said...

Joe, I'm with you on that one. She would scare me; but, I think she would also be one person who could get me so riled up that I actually raise my voice and let her have it.

Becky said...

Sharon S said...

Sharon, an idiot!

joyn said...

I'm not liking her at all either. Attitude drives me crazy.

Joe in NY said...

I have a better question: he would spend $1600 on a pair of shoes!?!?!?

I actually paid $1500 for my dog's van!

Sharon S said...

The only thing I've paid 1600 or more for is a computer, a car, and a condo. Not sure I could part with 1600 for shoes, even if I were a billionaire.

Lisanne said...

I almost missed the ending I was still laughing. :)

Sharon S said...

He makes Fabio look smart.

Merrilee said...

Fabio- the true blonde!

Jackie said...

Lovin' the Leonard Cohen soundtrack on Criminal Minds ...

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Holy cow! That was an amazingly stupid final council ... I don't know names but that girl has a serious attitude ... I hope she goes next!

Dusty said...

Wow, Shannon was nice on the eyes, but he turned ugly real quick. For the younger tribe, I like Kelly with the artificial leg. She seems to have her head together!

Margo, Ben Henry actually goes by "Benry", just thought I'd let you know. I had to figure out who he was because he's my pick in the pool.

Margo said...

**POOL UPDATE**
That was a fabulous tribal. I've never seen anyone shot himself in the foot and turn I believe 2 people from his alliance against him AT tribal. What an idiot! Shannon the tribe has spoken!!

How do you spell "bitter"?


I think from now on it will be S-H-A-N-N-O-N

RBennie said...

Wow, that was some tribal council. Never seen one quite like it in all these years. Shannon had a total melt down and pretty much voted himself out of the game, LOL. I have no words for that girl NaOnka's attitude. Talk about a chip on your shoulder, I think she's carrying a boulder on hers, LOL. I like Brenda. She seems very smart and composed. I think she can go far in the game. She really looks familiar though. I think she has been on some other reality show or something. I know I've seen her face before.

lynn1 said...

As usual I am late in posting my comments.
I was glad to see Shannon go. What a bigotted jerk! If I heard him right he is from Louisiana. I think he should have been on the show Swamp People instead of Survivor! LOL
Although my Pool girl is Brenda on the Young people's team, I am cheering for the older folks. At this point in time I like Jimmy J and Tyrone.

OT
Monty I am praying for your Mom, your family and you. I know first hand what you are going through. Please try to get some rest and eat properly.

Random thoughts La Flor:

Shannon. He's a big sexist, homophobic, jerk, but he wasn't wrong. Chase was splitting alliances. Brenda was a threat to him, and will be to anyone in her way. And even though he called out Sash for the wrong reason, as we saw behind the scenes, Shannon's intincts were right not to trust Sash. Shoulda kept his mouth shut. Bye-Bye.

Sash. Maybe it's a regional thing, but I've never heard anyone refer to themselves as half-black. In fact, I've been told the opposite, that the black community almost always refers to community members as black, as to do otherwise can be seen as an insult. Just struck me as odd. Add to that his plan for forging alliances, and his statement about New York women or getting women? Strikes me as an odd and arrogant duck that will self-implode at some point.

NaOnka. She teaches kids?!?! With that head bobbing temper, what is she teaching them? She lost a sock, and she thinks someone stole it, and her reaction is to take Fabio's socks? C-R-A-Z-Y! Loved the moment where she yells at Fabio not to raise his voice at her while looking sideways at him. And calling Kelly a charity case? Sitting out a comp. because she wants to see if Kelly will fail? Says it all that the ONLY reason she is there is because most don't like her, and feel they can get rid of her at anytime.

Fabio. Stupid, but very entertaining.

Brenda looks like she is poised to take control of the tribe. A power player.

Both Kellys, Benry, Alina were all smart to keep there heads down and wait it out.

Chase is another not too bright fellow. He makes an alliance. Immediately breaks it, and is now seen by the tribe both untrustworthy and Brenda's puppet. I can see the tribe taking him out at some point because of it.

The entire tribe made a big mistake at voting out Shannon. Sure, he was a jerk. But at this point in the game, you get rid of your weakest players. Shoulda dumped NaOnka, solidified your tribe and alliances and then gone after Shannon later. Instead, at their first council, the entire tribe imploded!

Random Thoughts Espada:

Jeff said that most cast members come into the game as leaders wherever they are from, and it can cause conflict.

Jimmy J. is my man! But being paid to be in charge elsewhere, and taking charge here are different. Hopefully, he will keep the team unified, but he may need to take a knee and let someone else be the one addressing the group once in a while or it might bite him in the ass if they hit a losing streak.

Holly. She should go home next. The snails? Who throws away food? If you don't want to eat them, don't. The shoes? Worse yet, confessing about the shoes! As Jimmy said, even though she pulled it together, once someone falls apart like this, they usually are more likely to do it again.

Jimmy T. So he doesn't like that the others listen to Jimmy J over him. Get over it! Go catch some fish, build something. But if you complain too loud too often, you just draw a target on your back.

Marty. Last week, he was like Jimmy T. This week, he took the high road. Let Jimmy run the show. If it works great, if not...Jimmy will be the one they blame. Smart.

Dan. Sure bringing expensive shoes was dumb. But people always bring things that I think are dumb. Improper clothing, strange personal items. Personally, I never understand how people get so weepy so quickly over their families, and I love my family. But when Holly confessed and Jimmy T was quick to forgive her, I loved Dan's reaction! Dan is not going to forget those alligator shoes, so Holly now has Dan against her for the rest of the game.

Tyrone. Though he isn't given a lot of camera time. I like his attitude.

Jill figuring out the clue and giving it to Marty and Dan. Pretty bold move! And managing not to call Holly out on her behavior was an even greater act of discipline!

I don't know that I would have used the medallion yet, but it worked in their favor unbeknownst to them because winning splintered La Flor to hell and back.

I really enjoyed this episode! Crazy people were behind every rock, and the season is just starting!

Sydney said...

Hey Everyone -- I missed the darn show. I took a girlfriend out for her b-day... but thank goodness for TIVO.

I think it will be a little less interesting without Shannon there but I was not sorry to see his chauvanistic, homophobic arse go. I would not have minded Miss Thang going, though I will miss her theatrics... just not her nastiness. What is with people, don't they realize that shit doesn't work on this show? I guess if they did, they wouldn't get cast.


A little OT --So I sit here on Thursday night with nothing to watch until Project Runway comes on... so I watched the pilot for The Event on Demand. I didn't get Lost. Anyone watching it?

(MONTY) left you a message on the TAR part 1 post.
