Survivor: Redemption Island - 2/23 Episode Blog Party

survivor,jackiestvblog


The show will be starting in about five minutes here on the East Coast. As it airs, I'll update this post with major news while sharing some opinions on what I see both here and in comments. Of course, the comments area is where the real party is! Everyone is welcome to join in, the water's fine! Oh. And bring snacks. Snacks are always good.

Yikes! Ralph found the hidden idol while collecting rocks!

Zapetera (Russell's tribe) won Immunity and Reward (combined).

Rob engineered a vote for Matt because Matt is close with one of the girls and congratulated the other tribe. We'll see.

The plan worked - Kristina used her idol, Matt blindsided.

Hi folks

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and Joe.

Petals said...

Hey boyfriend! Hey Ms Jax & Becky! I brought a watermelon. *splash*

monty924 said...

Beverage by the bar... I'm diving in!

monty924 said...

Howdie Petal, Becky Joe and Jackie!

Petals said...

I have "Francesquah" in the pool. @@

Petals said...

Phillip is a douchebag.

Joe in NY said...

she's an idiot. She may have the idol, but she's completely isolated.

Petals said...

Hey Monty! I brought a watermelon, but it isn't "loaded".

monty924 said...

Love Rob!

Joe in NY said...

We see any more of Rob it must mean they lose the next immunity challenge also...

monty924 said...

Watermelon sounds good either way! I'm wishing spring would hurry up and get here.

Sally said...

Hello everyone. Government jobs: stressful. Gotta love Rob.

monty924 said...

They should flush out Kristina's idol ASAP. Don't like her!

Petals said...

I'm glad Rob is rallying his harem to vote-out Phillip. That blow-hard wannabe "secret agent" drives everyone crazy.

Merrilee said...

Hi y'all

Jackie said...

Sure, Monty ... get rid of my pool person!

;-)

Petals said...

Boyfriend, where is the baby?

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Hey everyone, I'm leaving work and heading home. Only 5ish here on the left coast. Enjoy the show and please encourage those cowboys to light a fire under their saddles. I would hate to see them go first!

monty924 said...

This is hilarious. What man would do that???

Becky said...

That Phillip is something else.

Petals said...

Geeminy Christmas - he is stalking the crab like it's a wild boar. @@

OMG! The best drinking game ever - everyone take a drink every time Phillip says "I was a Special Govt Agent"!

monty924 said...

Gosh darn, he's special!

Delee said...

Special Agent Chug # 1

Becky said...

Hey Monty, Petals and Sally.

monty924 said...

oops, sorry Jackie! ;)

Becky said...

Love the snake being shown when Russell!

Delee said...

Russell is on the Idol Hunt! Will he or won't he?

Petals said...

Everyone get their drinks ready - Phillip seems to work "special agent" into every sentence. LOL

Delee said...

Ralph the Neanderthal!

Petals said...

oh no!!! Not the Deliverance guy with an idol!

Merrilee said...

Petals said...
Everyone get their drinks ready - Phillip seems to work "special agent" into every sentence. LOL



I have my shot glasses lined up!

Delee said...

But he left it there so if Russell finds it, then what?

Sally said...

Kritina was so proud that she safely didn't play the idol last week, maybe she'll try the same thing this week and get evicted. At least Philip has some entertainment value, even if it's the shake my head variety.

monty924 said...

Can't wait to see Russell and Ralphie go at it. Petals, he's a crier too. Take a drink whenever he says SA or sheds a tear.

Jackie said...

I'm surprised Ralph was bright enough to know what it was. He could have hidden it in his chest hair.

ORKMommy said...

I wouldn't pretend to be a chicken in this game! We all know what happens to them...

Becky said...

"Integrity" or "my word" earns you a double shot!

Becky said...

Hey, Deelee, that is my pool person.

monty924 said...

Redemption Island challenges probably will NOT be too physical.

Petals said...

Monty, have glass ready.
I bet Phillip cant swim.
And will Ralph's human sweater weigh him down?

Margo said...

Hi everyone!! I'm here but I'm trying to pay attention to the show.
I have pepperoni pizza and sausage & bacon. Anyone want a slice? I put them on the cabana bar.
Margo

Delee said...

Then Becky it is up to you to do a wax job on him! HAHA

Petals said...

Fun challenge!

Lisanne said...

I have the "secret Agent" in the pool. Hmmm..I wonder if my guy will last until the finals, you know like he can go undercover and secretly infiltrate all the alliances and....

Nope just can't type anymore with a straight face.

Petals said...

Lisanne- LOL
Hey Margo!

monty924 said...

Phillip or Andrea?

Becky said...

Looks like the "simpleton (as Russell called him) isn't so simple after all!

ORKMommy said...

I couldn't hug the chicken man if he was on our team!

Petals said...

Woohoo!
Maybe it will be Phillip vs Francesquah in the redemption battle?

Joe in NY said...

I'm a little disappointed in Rob. What's the matter with a little good sportsmanship?

Joe in NY said...

I would love a Fraquescha/Philip duel...although I hate to see Crazy Philip go. He may be the single most annoying player in Survivor history. Can anyone think of another player who was so completely intolerable? Even Coach wasn't that abrasive.

Petals said...

uhoh. The implications if both African Americans get voted off? Ms Jackie - isnt this the most Arian group of Survivors ever?

Margo said...

um lifeguard Laurie we are watching Survivor tonight. You do know that right? : P

Margo

Jackie said...

I think I'll just call Omatepa (sp?) the Omelets from now on. They're either fried or scrambled.

Petals said...

Joe - Hmm...Coach was annoying, but in a lovable way. I cant remember everyone that drove me nuts, tho. hehe (xoxox)

monty924 said...

So I'm assuming we won't see the RI duel until next week.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals...love the drinking game.

The "baby" is sleeping in the dining room now. I was in playing with her. She's exhausted and when she's exhausted she doesn't show the separation anxiety. Guess I gotta start the day with a Puppy Death March.

How's Bash?

Delee said...

Soft boiled would be better!

monty924 said...

Dagone-it!

Petals said...

Joe - Bash is my heart. He sits, stays, shakes hands and goes out to potty. I am overjoyed. He gets neutered in a week; I am scared. :( Will need your shoulder.

monty924 said...

Hahaha... he don't need no stink'n numbers!

Joe in NY said...

How is this helping? Ralphie has the HII...

Petals said...

My gosh, Ralph IS sooo hirsute; ICK!
he needs to back-off my man Russ.

Petals said...

OMG, he is like the wolfman. You could BRAID the hair on his back.

Joe in NY said...

How old is Bash?

I look forward to the Keira going potty outside ALL the time.

Ralphie may have overplayed it. When someone figures out he has the clue, they're going to think he was lying about Russell having the clue.

Delee said...

Uh Oh someone now has a target on their back....Chicken Man

monty924 said...

Here go... glass in hand!

Petals said...

Gallantrily? Is that a secret agent term?

monty924 said...

Now why doesn't he wear those trunks instead of his briefs?

Petals said...

Sebastian is 4mths old. He does have accidents, but they are on the pads that I have placed. whew. Treats are the key.

monty924 said...

There we go... Drink!!!

Petals said...

Ready to drink...come on Phillip...give it to me, man.

Becky said...

I am sure they would all love to smother Phillip, but they need the strength.

monty924 said...

Grant is hubba hubba!

Petals said...

Dreadlock boy is kinda sexy.

Sally said...

Petals and Joe, What kind of dogs are your new babies?

Joe in NY said...

Has it dawned on Rob that maybe Matt isn't playing anything? That's just the way he is?

monty924 said...

Agreed, Petals... dreamie. Isn't he JoyN's boy? Where is she?

Petals said...

Monty - oh yeah! We were thinking the same thing, LOL!

Petals said...

Jackie - I was serious: This is the whitest group ever. There are only 2 minorities. I dont remember a season ever being so...white. Am I right? You are the authority.

Joe in NY said...

Willie was so good about potty training, he had about 2 accidents and that was it. He was just kind of a neat dog. Very shortly thereafter he stopped even using the yard and insisted on being walked away from the house.

Keira, on the other hand, goes out with me for 15 minutes and then comes in and craps on the floor! LOL.


@Sally - Keira is a 9 week old Newfoundland. Hopefully Willie's girlfriend some day.

Petals said...

Sally - Sebastian is a black miniature Schnauzer. Joe has a baby Newfoundland that weighed more at birth than Bash is now! HAHA

Petals said...

Waitin' to drink...come on Phillip - give us the speech!

monty924 said...

I agree with you Joe. I think he's gullible and just a nice kid. Rob's got this one wrong.

Joe in NY said...

Watch Philip throw a tantrum again anyway...

Joe in NY said...

LOL Petals. She only weighs 16 pounds now. Her brother is closer to 25, he's quite the chunk. My sister has him.

monty924 said...

Actor, agent??? close enough... drinkee

Joe in NY said...

You just know Jeff is going to prod Philip to try and get him going...

Petals said...

Monty, we started our drinking game too late. We'll have to get wasted at the next episode, haha

Joe in NY said...

Christina is awfully cocky for a woman in awful position.

Joe in NY said...

Nice one, Jeff. What does the Gorilla do when it screws up?

Sally said...

Joe, Newfoundlands are large dogs! Hope you have lots of room. And Petals, Joe's dog probably weights more now than yours ever will!

Petals said...

OMG, Phillip is a royal douchebag. Geesh!

Joe in NY said...

LMAO. Nice one, Jeff.

Petals said...

Matt is kinda dreamy, too

Joe in NY said...

Sally, I already have a 150 pound Pyrenees. He needs a girlfriend in his own weight class. Fortunately, I'm not a stickler for housekeeping. :)

Petals said...

Bash will top-out at around 15lbs in a year or so. Keira (Joe's baby) would eat him for breakfast.

Kristina is an idiot.

Petals said...

aww, poor Matt.

Joe in NY said...

Wow, that ought to help divide the tribe a bit.

Petals said...

I hope he comes back (he will).

monty924 said...

That was dumb... IMO

monty924 said...

Well, they did get rid of the idol. Now another one will be hidden next week.

Oh, next week's looking good! Russell playing with a bunch of bitches, LOL

Petals said...

Well, I am finishing my Tribal-tini (a martini that you can set on fire). I am sure Phillip will give us plenty of juice for next week!

monty924 said...

Petals, I like that... a Tribal-tini. Bring em back next week and I'll join you.

See you all later! :)

Laurie said...

Okay, I haven't read the comments yet but I do realize I am not the Lifeguard for the pool. Really, I am not that crazy ... It's just been a long week already!

Now to go on to read how many of you pointed it out to me.

Jackie said...

Laurie - Margo did. :::pointing:::

Anonymous said...

i'm missing from the pool post. was in it last week. typo maybe? -jeannemarie

Laurie said...

jeannemarie

Which pool? The one for Survivor or the one I mistakenly posted for TAR?

joy n said...

Had to tape the show tonight to watch in a bit. Sorry to hear Matt is gone.

Yes, Grant is mine. Well, I share with Gayle.

Shocked (sort of) to hear that Phillip is still there. Would have liked to see Francesqua beat the ex-secret agent man's butt at Redemption Island. Now I'd rather see Matt beat hers.

Margo said...

Jeannemarie-

You are on the post I just did. You have David. I believe he is the on that showed up in a suit & tie.

Margo

ML said...

I have to hope my own pool girl Francesqua loses the duel. Sorry Petals my pool partner, but I actually think you'd agree Matt is not only nice eye candy, but he also seems to be a genuinely nice person. I am a Rob fan, but I, too, think he has misread this one. Go Matt!
