Survivor: Nicaragua - Season Finale Blog Party Post

survivor,jackiestvblog

Survivors Ready?

Welcome one, welcome all! The blog party is ready to start! The Sunday night East Coast football curse strikes the timing of the show just as it did for most of The Amazing Race. I expect things to start about 20 minutes late. I'm SO happy I don't have to stay up to write up the three hours for TV Squad although I miss the income from that.

Everyone is welcome to join in with comments as the show airs here on the East Coast or even later in West Coast time. As the show airs, I'll post major events here, but the real fun and most of the reactions are in the comments section. See you there! I'll bring Trader Joe's Veggie Sticks and the Guinness.

8:18 PM ET. It's finally starting.

YES! Fabio wins immunity!

Dan was voted out.

2nd Immunity -- Holly out, Chase out. Whoa, Fabio got it again!

Sash, Chase and Fabio voted out Holly. (She voted Sash.) A good move for Fabio, methinks. I don't think Sash has jury votes. Chase is iffy.

Dan and Marty voted Fabio, Alina and Brenda voted Chase.

The vote:
Fabio, Chase, Fabio, Chase, Chase, Chase, Fabio, Fabio, FABIO!

Fabio wins!

New rule for the show -- No longer will any quitters necessarily go on the jury. The show will reserve the right to "do what they want with them." Good.

Most votes ever, biggest percentage ever, no one close ... Jane won the $100 grand for the favorite player.

NEW SEASON: When voted out, live on Redemption Island, one person will reenter the game after surviving the others coming in.

booo! survior is starting late.

Delee said...

20 minutes late here too!
Hi Jackie!!!

Jackie said...

I don't even like football.

Merrilee said...

who do you think will win it all tonight??

Anonymous said...

Where are you? We are in Toronto Ontario Canada and it doesn't seem to be on here either. What happened?

Merrilee said...

Football ran over. I am in Texas

Jackie said...

NJ - I think it was the Jets/Steelers game. It was snowing there a bit ... that's about all I noticed.

ORKMommy said...

8 years ago today was the finale of Survivor: Thailand. That was the year that Brian Heidik won. That was also the finale that I was in labor with my Super O! I'll never forget, the anesthesiologist came in to do my epidural, after 14 hours of labor, just as Jeff was about to reveal the winner. He asked everyone to leave the room and my mother, O's father, her aunt and my doctor all asked him if he could wait a minute!! Seriously people!! There was a TV about 100 feet away from my room in the waiting area but they were afraid they wouldn't make it on time! Almost Happy Birthday to my almost 8 year old girl!

Becky said...

I have hot and mild tamales to share tonight.

The only thing I am not wanting to see is the memory walk. Boring!

If Fabio goes to the end I wouldn't be surprised to see him win it. Chase and Sash have p.oed too many people.

Jackie said...

Merrilee - I'm not thrilled with any of them. I guess Holly or Fabio would be my choices. Dan deserves nothing and Sash annoys me. Chase has played stupidly.

This won't go down as my favorite season, for sure.

Lisanne said...

So no one is pulling for Dan? You have to hand it to the guy for still being there.

Merrilee said...

I am rooting for my pool pick- the last girl standing- Holly but I have a feeling either Chase or Sash will win it

ORKMommy said...

Dan is only there because he poses zero threat. He doesn't do well in challenges and he goes wherever the wind blows him as far as alliances go. He has no strategy and only serves as a vote at this point. If he were a threat they would have gotten rid of him a while ago.

Becky said...

Jackie, please turn off the wv.

joyn said...

Dan is still there because he hasn't annoyed anyone enough to vote him out. He may ride this to the end because he's done nothing to warrant his winning. Anyone against him will probably win because at least they tried to win a comp. For that reason, I hope they vote him out tonight before the final council. It would be sad to see anyone else win by default.

wv is still on. Jackie?

Joe in NY said...

Hello folks!

Time to see which of the Survivors is the least stupid...

ORKMommy said...

I have a feeling Fabio is going to be getting calls from Calvin Klein or another company that uses men's models. He's got a really good look!

Becky said...

Oh, I wanted to see them go back to camp in the rain with no fire burning.

Joe in NY said...

I would love for Dan to actually win one immunity challenge. How funny would that be?

Merrilee said...

come on fabio

ORKMommy said...

I'm so glad Fabio won that one! He needed it so badly!

Lisanne said...

Yay! Now its is gonna get interesting.

Joe in NY said...

so, do you think they'll dump Dan or try to keep him around yet again. This is a million dollar choice and these morons will probably screw it up.

joyn said...

Great for Fabio! Hope they decide to get Dan out. Ooh, Holly just said they are,

Merrilee said...

Joe-
I vote for stupidity. They will find a way to screw up.

ORKMommy said...

They'd be smart to get rid of Dan or Holly at tribal. The final three needs to include Sash and Chase. I think they've both pissed enough jury members off that whoever is there with them will win.

Petals said...

hey guys!

joyn said...

This is sorta like watching The Three Stooges without the yuk-yuks.

thanks, Jackie. (wv)

Petals said...

Joe! Honey....I need a hug

Anonymous said...

hey guys.

watching from israel.

i have a hunch the big three will remain till the end

ben

Petals said...

GRRR
So anti-Dan.
So pro-Fabio!

Joe in NY said...

I think they really need to KEEP Dan at this point (yes, I said it). He'll never win an endurance comp and no one on the jury is going to vote for him as being the most deserving: he's done NOTHING and he was wearing $1500 shoes so they know he doesn't need the money. They would be much better served in kicking out Chase or Sash.

Joe in NY said...

Hey Petals, how's it going?

(hugs)

Petals said...

Poor Jane. SHe will surely get America's vote for the extra million, right?

Merrilee said...

I would vote out either Sash or Chase as they are more of a threat then Holly or Dan at this point. The next challenge(s) are going to be pysical and dan or holly won't make it long in a physical challenge.

Joe in NY said...

I'm with Merrilee...

Laurie said...

Just dropping in for a minute from rainy California. I'm thrilled that Fabio won immunity! I hope it changes the plans!

SueGee said...

Well, it will start on time here but I will have to wait over 2 more hours LOL

Sue on the left coast ~~~~~(waving to everyone)

Petals said...

fabio has played a good, all-around game, without any overt under-handedness. He deserves the prize.

Petals said...

If anyone deserved to be "runner-up" , it was Jane.

Petals said...

I Jane at Tribal council?

Joe in NY said...

I thought Dan was surprisingly effective in his lobbying at council, not that it probably changed anyone's mind.

Petals said...

wait, see her. didn't recognize her...

Petals said...

BUY BUY Dan, you slug!

ORKMommy said...

At least now Dan can get some ibuprofen, sit in a hot bath and rest those knees!

Merrilee said...

Tell it like it is Dan, you sore loser.

Becky said...

Dan's parting words were the most spirit and passion that he has shown all season!

Thanks Jackie for taking down the wv.

Merrilee said...

If Dan would have lobbied for Chase instead of Holly to vote out when Fabio came to him I think they could have gotten Chase out with Holly's vote.

~~Silk said...

Ooooo.... Holly's not getting Dan's vote!

Anonymous said...

dan is pathetic. even scrambling he cant do. sorry guys, holly is going to win

ben

joyn said...

Sash is a slime.

Petals said...

Joe...
I am having a rough time

Petals said...

I want fabio to win.

Petals said...

(trying not to use this room as a support group, but I know you guys & stuff, so...)
My mom is dying, and I am her only caregiver, and i am losing my mind.

ok. done. Go Fabio.
(see? It doesn't seem right.)

Becky said...

Okay, time for a snack or something! The Boring Time is upon us.

Joe in NY said...

that sucks, Petals, I'm sorry. Stay strong.

joyn said...

Was happy to see my pool guy, Shannon leave early. Still am.

Merrilee said...

ahhh Petals. I am sooo sorry to hear that. Chin up girl, My mom is taking care of my grandma and I know what you are going thru.
Hugs

joyn said...

Sorry to hear that Petals.

Becky said...

Oh, Petals, I am so sorry.

Petals said...

OMG Joe. These are the last days, and there are the vultures, and yada yada.
I try to be strong, but she is awake 24/7, and into everything, like a 3 yr old, but so fragile.
All the morphine & haldol don't even touch her; she is motorized.

Merrilee said...

oh 'na you were far from friendly. you are a nasty, nasty person. Never be afraid to admit that.

joyn said...

But Kelly. that is you. You did quit.

ORKMommy said...

What a wimpy little fire! Don't they usually have a huge tower??

Joe in NY said...

Nothing worse, Petals. I really feel for you. Keep the faith, you'll get through it.

joyn said...

Jane wasn't there to make the fire! LOL!!!

Jackie said...

So sorry to hear that Petals. Hang in there.

Anonymous said...

dont know what about you, but for me marty was he best competitor

ben

Petals said...

Thanks e'one. I have always been the one that everyone else takes care of. Now I am the one doing the responsible thing. I am being a mother.
Her disease caught up with her so quickly. 10 days ago, she was coherent, now she is veg.
Sorry. Sorry to be a debby downer. I have no other outlet.
Anyway - GO FABIO!

Jackie said...

Ben - I think Marty and Brenda were actually the sharpest about the game ... but other factors did them in.

ORKMommy said...

Here we go...final immunity! Wheee....

Lisanne said...

Nice change from the balancing plates and bowls and such challenge.

joyn said...

If Fabio wins this one, he deserves to win the whole shebang. Talk about winning when you REALLY need to!

Merrilee said...

Now that Holly is out Come on Fabio

Joe in NY said...

I wonder if Chase or Holly now wish they had kept Dan...he would have been out on the 2nd coin.

Merrilee said...

I wonder if anyone has ever told Jeff to shush because he was disruting concentration

joyn said...

Come on, Fabio!

Petals said...

Joe, I am planning a trip to make snow angels in the near future, when things are finished here.
Keep a spot available in your yard.

YES!!! FABIO!!!!!!!!!!!

Becky said...

WTG Fabio!

ORKMommy said...

YES!!! Fabio in the final 3!! I think the boy just won the game for himself!

Merrilee said...

Yay! Fabio! Fabio!

joyn said...

YAY FABIO! Three times in a row.

Joe in NY said...

LMAO!!!! Way to go Fabio! Since the other 3 are responsible for most of the jury being on the jury, Fabio has a real chance at this.

Anonymous said...

its funny how before any finale the majority alliance never holds up until the end

ben

Merrilee said...

I beleive Sash may be going home

joyn said...

Now Holly should really start to worry!

joyn said...

And the cannalbalism starts!

Joe in NY said...

What game did those 3 morons think they were playing?

joyn said...

Such a pretty smile on Fabio's face. He knows bull when he hears it.

Becky said...

Fabio is having a ball. Hey, at least Chase was honest that Fabio would be gone.

joyn said...

They're all seriously kissing his butt.

joyn said...

Jane trusted Holly too, Fabio. Think!

joyn said...

Come to think of it, Fabio might well win against Sash. Sash po'd a lot of the jury.

Merrilee said...

Joyn-
Sash has at least 4 votes on the jury- Purple Kelly, Nasty 'Na, Brenda and Marty.

Joe in NY said...

I would think Fabio would stand a chance against any of the other 3. After all, they were a bit clumsy about how they played even though they sort of stayed together. After all, Sash was a late addition to that little group. I would think he would have the best chance with the jury since he could argue that his alliance (Brenda and Benry) got trashed and he managed to survive.

Merrilee said...

Keep Talking Sash, you are digging yourself deeper and deeper

ORKMommy said...

OMG! The boys finally got smart! Sorry Holly...

joyn said...

He was smart to vote out Holly. She may have gotten the most votes from the jury.

Becky said...

As much as I hate to see Holly go I think they guys voted wisely.

Anonymous said...

holly crap

joyn said...

Merilee, I don't know. Fabio may have earned some respect from the jurors by winning 3 comps in a row and Sash didn't come off too well in that tribal conversation.

Petals said...

Does Fabio resemble Hayden, the BB winner from this season?
These shaggy boys got it going ON!

joyn said...

Sash only won one individual immunity. I don't think of him as a particularly good player, just a fairly good liar.

joyn said...

Chase literally just played dumb. A lot of stupid decisions thruout.

Becky said...

Holly is pretty.

ORKMommy said...

Seriously, I think the only person on the jury that didn't get along with Fabio is Nayonka. He played a great social game as well as a physical game. He deserves it most of the three in my opinion!

Becky said...

Chase can forget about Janes -- and probably Holly's vote. We know that Dan won't vote for Chase! Nasty Nay will not vote for Judd AKA Fabio.

monty924 said...

Finally home. I'm rooting for Fabio, and I gave every vote I could for Jane to win the fan favorite.

monty924 said...

Becky, I disagree about Nay voting for Fabio. Chase is her boy, but she is an odd duck and who better to vote for Fabio, lol

joyn said...

Me too, Monty. Fabio to win and Jane for the crowd fave.

Joe in NY said...

Why would Chase pick a fight with Marty on that question?

Merrilee said...

So far they are going after Chase and Sash. Does that mean that Fabio is out of the voting?

ORKMommy said...

Because Chase is dumber than a box of hammers!

Merrilee said...

ohhh shades of Sue hawk here with Jane

Joe in NY said...

Jane is not a good sport.

Joe in NY said...

Why the heck is Jane mad at Sash and not Chase? Chase was her buddy who threw her under the boss.

Petals said...

Sob story from Chase. @@

~~Silk said...

Joe - Chase knows he doesn't have Marty's vote, so why fall for Marty's trap and alienate another vote?

ORKMommy said...

How are Sash's teeth so white after 39 days of not brushing? Seriously!!

monty924 said...

Sue Hawk... was she the rat and the snake woman? Jane is angry but has every right to be. JMO

Joe in NY said...

Sash is taking a beating...not quite sure why...

joyn said...

Ooh, a little snipe from Jane on Sash's mother. "I truly enjoyed meeting both of your parents."

Petals said...

Ork, agreed.
GO FAB!!!
(I wonder if Jimmy J will be at the winner ceremony?)
And WTF is Dan bitching about? He is a billionaire gimp with an attitude! Go back to your Ferrari.

Petals said...

Dan: "Beauty fades, dumb is forever".
No s***, Dan. You are living proof that Dumb is truly forever!

Becky said...

Boy, is Dan bitter or was he bitter?

ORKMommy said...

Honestly, Sash is the ONLY one up there who outwitted and outplayed but will he outlast?

Merrilee said...

Not a dry eye on the jury afte Fabio's speech

joyn said...

Well, Kelly is truly an idiot too.

joyn said...

Really, what would a coattail like Kelly know about strategy?

Merrilee said...

Dan is bitter because he isn't part of the final 3 and they tossed him after riding coattails the entire game

monty924 said...

Go Fabio.... He did outwit them all in a way, and he absolutely outplayed in the home stretch. If Chase or Sash win this, I'll be PO'd.

Joe in NY said...

Hmmm...ya think Jeff is retiring?

monty924 said...

Delee, I love your avi. I'm headed to warmth and palm trees as soon as the new year comes in. I can't wait!

Jackie said...

Uh-oh -- Jeff will be making an announcement that will change the Survivor game forever? He better not be leaving!

~~Silk said...

Anyone want to place bets on Fabio's hair length at the award show?

Becky said...

Joe, I wondered the same thing.

Merrilee said...

I think Jeff's contract is up. I remember a few years back he only resigned for 2 or 3 years.

Merrilee said...

Silk-
I say he got it cut!

Merrilee said...

Yay! l vote for Fabio

Merrilee said...

It is going to be between Chase and Fabio.

Merrilee said...

aha! Fabio DID cut his hair!!

monty924 said...

Love Fabio's new do!

Petals said...

Fabio played a great, clean game. GO FABIO!
Is there an America's favorite this year?

joyn said...

This reunion show will be shorter than usual. Fabio looks good all cleaned up!

~~Silk said...

Whoa! Fabio looks exactly like my nephew!

monty924 said...

I love to see them all with a little more weight on them!

Jackie said...

Who are those three dudes? What have they done with the three we knew?

Becky said...

I will be disappointed if Sash wins. I just don't like his shifty ways.

Wow! Fabio is good looking.

Merrilee said...

Come on Fabio

ORKMommy said...

GO FABIO!!

Merrilee said...

YAY!!!!!!!! Fabio WON!!

joyn said...

YES!!!!!! Fabio won!!!!

monty924 said...

YAY... Partayyyyy at my house tonight. I guess they all had a reason to not vote Sash and it wasn't just Jane. Hmmm

Joe in NY said...

LOL. Not the greatest winner in the history of Survivor, but one I can be satisfied with. I'd love to see him in the jungle with Parvati, Boston Rob and Russell...he'd be the first Survivor to actually end up on a spit over a fire...

ORKMommy said...

I can totally see why parents want Nayonka fired! If she taught my kid I'd be driving that bandwagon!

~~Silk said...

[Joe - giggle.....]

Petals said...

FABIO MY BOY! A Missouri boy, my homey.

Merrilee said...

LOL. Not the greatest winner in the history of Survivor, but one I can be satisfied with. I'd love to see him in the jungle with Parvati, Boston Rob and Russell...he'd be the first Survivor to actually end up on a spit over a fire...

You're to funny!!

joyn said...

I just think he was the best of what they had to work with.

Anonymous said...

i think it was not one of the best seasons of survivor. congrats fabio

Merrilee said...

Fabio aka Judd has a serious case of ADD

joyn said...

You're a hippy after my own heart, Fabio.

monty924 said...

One vote. Has that ever happened before?

Petals said...

BF Joe - What a funny idea - I think Fabio is disarming enough to hold his own against Parvati & the rest of the evil clan. It'd be a fun watch!

joyn said...

Good, Brenda calling NaOnka out a bit.

joyn said...

Let's see if Chase is any good at singing.

Not bad at all!

monty924 said...

I liked Chase, but he was a doormat for most of the game, or at least they edited him that way.

joyn said...

He really was wishy-washy all the way. Sash did have him pegged.

Jackie said...

Sash definitely looks better with some weight on.

monty924 said...

That's a nice thing for Holly to do. I remember when she drowned his shoes and thinking Holy Sh!t.... I love that they all seem to kiss and make up after the fact, LOL

joyn said...

Yes, Sash looks much better in non-gaunt mode, Jackie! LOL

Merrilee said...

OOOOHHHH! DRAMA quick, someone get the popcorn!

monty924 said...

Yes, yes, yes.... no quitters on the jury!!!!

Jackie said...

Jane and Marty didn't (and will never) kiss.

joyn said...

Good! No more quitters on the jury.

And thank goodness, Jeff is not leaving. It would never be the same without him.

Can't wait to hear what this "new" season holds for us.

monty924 said...

Its about time that Survivor figures that one out. NaOnka and Kelly should have never had a vote on this jury. There should be no 'quit' in Survivor. JMO

Becky said...

Does anyone think that Jane will NOT win the Sprint vote?

ORKMommy said...

I think that if people quit, the ones who are left should be able to vote someone back into the game. That would totally throw a huge wrench into the game!

joyn said...

Jane is crotchety but I still hope she wins it. She fought hard and long to stay. Wish I could do half of what she accomplished there.

monty924 said...

I agree ORKMommy!

monty924 said...

Yes, well deserved....... Jane, you go girl!!!

joyn said...

it's Jane YAY!!!

monty924 said...

I couldn't even think of anyone else I wanted to win it!

joyn said...

Jimmy T looks better with clean hair.

joyn said...

I LOVE BOSTON ROB!!!

joyn said...

Stop teasing us and tell us what is new next season. This better not be a buildup for some minor thing.

Jackie said...

Hmmm ... big news ahead and Boston Rob is there? Other than the birth of his new daughter, news for the game.

Hmmm ...

joyn said...

That's going to screw up a lot of people's game. Not sure I'll like this duel thing.

Becky said...

Not real crazy about the new twist.

ORKMommy said...

Redemption Island, hmmmm.... Did they say where it's gonna be at?

monty924 said...

22 seasons... I wish I had started watching it sooner. loved seeing Cirie and Coach in the audience. And Boston Rob... :)

joyn said...

If voted off, goes to Redemption Island the 2nd voted off has duel with the first. Whoever wins the duel goes back to game. It continues thruout the game. Do I have that right?

joyn said...

Loved seeing Rufus too.

joyn said...

Two Rofus's (Roofus) in one day!

Anonymous said...

Petals, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. My heart goes out to you. It's very, very hard. Prayers coming your way.


Was very happy Fabio won, but I think he's better off if he doesn't say anything - again! ;-)
Who voted for who? Wasn't perfect win, but he did make his way to the top. He just makes me laugh - hard - when he talks. Definitely a bad case of ADD.

Yay, Jane! She deserved it!

I like the redemption Island thing. From what I get, yes, if you're voted out, you go to Redemption Island. The next person voted off, will join you and you both duel to stay in the game. Now, what I don't understand is, do they stay in the game by going back to the regular tribe, or do they stay on Redemption Island and dual each other until the end?

Sounds exciting.

joyn said...

Jeff Probst said in an interview today that because of the Redemption Island duels between eliminated contestants, all of the reward/immunity challenges will be combined every week for the non-elim'd players. Will that mean that when the individual challenges start, whomever wins them, automatically wins reward and immunity? That kind of sucks.

joyn said...

BTW, congrats to ML and Zoetawny for winning the Survivor pool!

ML said...

Let me just say now, I will comment later when I get a chance (if the blog post is still here-I've been MIA on here the whole season unfortunately), but hey Zoetawny our fabulous Fabio kicked some serious booty to win the whole thing!
ML

monty924 said...

Petals, I hope you see this...

I came in late and didn't see your post about your mother. I lost my mother in September and my heart goes out to you. Hang in there and know that you are in my prayers. Prayers for momma too!!

(((Petals)))
