Survivor: Redemption Island - 3/02 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.

Apparently the person winning the duel ends up dueling everyone who comes there before returning. Two people from each tribe are getting a trip there. The duel is just another challenge. No jousting or swords. Rats.

Matt won. Francesca is going home.

Zapetera threw Immunity/Reward in a plot to boot Russell.

Russell is reminding me of Charlie Sheen and his "goddesses."

3-way tie - Ralph, Stephanie and Russell. Re-vote.

Russell voted to Redemption Island.

Beverages over by the bar, beer in hand, and sitting on the side with toes in water. Ahhh, the pool feels fine!

Hi Jackie!

Petals said...

*splash* Hey Jackie, Monty & E'one!

Petals said...

(Team Charlie)

Jackie said...

Ready for the duel?

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals xoxo

Petals said...

Boyfriend. How's Keira?

monty924 said...

Can't wait to see what the 'duel' will be...

Becky said...

Hey, everyone! Are you ready for the game of chasers -- you know everytime SAM (Secret Agent Man) tells us that he was a former special agent?

Petals said...

Yes, Jackie - ready to see what the "redemption" part is. Maybe like Real World/Road Rules Challenge duels?

Petals said...

Becky, oh yeah!
I am ready, LOL

monty924 said...

Ready Becky! ;-)

Joe in NY said...

I still think that wasn't that great a move by Rob. I mean flushing the idol was good, but he made an enemy out of Ashley for no reason and is playing too far out front. (IMHO)

Petals said...

Becky, I think any reference to Phillips former "career" counts as a drink!

Petals said...

Ya know, these two duelers are kinda equally matched, physically.

Joe in NY said...

oops, I mean Andrea, not Ashley

Petals said...

Kiera update, Joe

monty924 said...

I agree with you Joe. Way out front!

Joe in NY said...

Keira is a She-Devil and she is taking over. Willie is a Saint for putting up with her crap. She's taking to jumping on his tail to try and get him to chase her. He just ignores her. She even barks at him. He ignores her. Amazing really, since he's had bullying problem with puppies in the past. She's totally dominating him.

Joe in NY said...

It is kind of the mistake he made in Heroes v. Villains. Russell plays out front. Rob plays out front. They both end up targets. Still don't know how Russell managed to survive. He likes alliances of 3 but that just isn't enough numbers but he somehow makes it work.

monty924 said...

That's cool. They get to watch the duel.

Petals said...

Aww.. that is so sweet. Willie loves her like a bratty lil sister.
Take more pics for FB, K?
Bash is also developing into a brat. But a cute one.

Petals said...

"Island Boyfriend" LOL

Joe in NY said...

Schnauzer's are generally very "self-confident" as are female Newfs. No getting away from genetics.

Petals said...

I have Francesqwah in the pool, but Matt is better looking. Go...winner!

Joe in NY said...

Hopefully all the extra time required for the duel means we don't have to endure any more flashbacks to former contestants who needed redemption. LOL. Those spots were so forced and lame.

Joe in NY said...

LOL. Those sticks are barely hanging in there.

Matt is all but out.

Delee said...

Guess Matt was never a Boy Scout!

Joe in NY said...

nice come back

Delee said...

I wonder if it had been 2 guys if the challenge would have been physical?

monty924 said...

I was on the edge of my chair. Great challenge, and go Matt.

Petals said...

woohooo!!!
Great challenge.
I can root for Russell now.

Joe in NY said...

That's a little cold, Jeff.

joy n said...

Yeah! I'm so glad that Matt won Redemption!

Petals said...

Joe, I know, right?? He may as well have said, " Dont let the door hit ya"

Joe in NY said...

what good would lying to Russell about who went home do? They were both from the other tribe anyway.

I just love when people tell lies that have no purpose. Happens on BB all the time, also. Non-strategic lies are just a wasted effort that can come back to bite you when the truth comes out.

monty924 said...

What would telling Russell that lie do for their game? Just wondering...

monty924 said...

LOL... Joe, we had the same thought.

Petals said...

Hey Dee & Joy!
Now get ready for the SAM shot game!

Joe in NY said...

Great minds, Monty! LOL

Frankly, obsessing over Russell plays right into Russell's hands.

Petals said...

What dummys. Russell will see who went home at the next challenge.
GO RUSSELL!

Joe in NY said...

you mean unlike you, Gary?

Becky said...

Joe and Monty, I agree with you. It was an unnecessary lie.

Joe in NY said...

Petals, he won't know until he gets to Redemption Island. Don't curse our boy!!!

Petals said...

Oh, Matt has to stay at redemption island?? I thought he got to go back to his tribe.

joy n said...

I'm ready, Petals. Haven't had a good drunk in many, many years.

monty924 said...

Ick!!

Petals said...

someone will leak it to Russell about throwing it.

Petals said...

I need a drink! Make Phillip talk.

Petals said...

xoxo BFnNY

Joe in NY said...

Didn't one tribe throw one once and then lose like 4 in a row? It is so effing funny: Russell schemes, Russell undermines the tribe, etc....that's all they say. But Russell isn't the one considering throwing the challenge.

Petals said...

ga-ROSS challenge. Spitting?

joy n said...

Too much to hope for that Russell will be voted off tonight. If it happens, I hope Matt kicks his stinky butt!

monty924 said...

Another recycled challenge, but I like this one. (:

Joe in NY said...

These people are worse than Russell. I'm glad they think they are so morally superior.

monty924 said...

Come on Russell, you need to work your magic right here!

Petals said...

Right on, Russell!

monty924 said...

Yes, Russell... you are dealing with a bunch of bitches!

Petals said...

OMG, Monty - I almost wrote that exact sentence. What are you, psychic?

joy n said...

If they do send Russell off, the other tribe may soon think of doing the same for Rob. The two of them on Redemption? That will be one he** of a show!

monty924 said...

I wish, Petals! lol

Petals said...

Effin A, ROB!!!! You are a bloodhound, man!

monty924 said...

Rob playing a 'Russell' game, I love it!

joy n said...

Right under secret agent man's butt. Glad he's retired!

Petals said...

LOL @Joyn

Petals said...

That older chick on Russells tribe, the one that looks like a Cabbage patch kid, she could flip.

Joe in NY said...

LOL, joyn, could it be any more poetic than Special Agent was sitting on the clue? Bet he didn't solve a lot of crimes...LMAO

Petals said...

Julie is a Cabbage Patch or , like, and carved apple head. But as long as she flips, I dont care.
Russell rocks!

monty924 said...

I'm about to break the 'edge' of this chair!!!

Petals said...

same here, Monty

Petals said...

Russell is the Dr Will of Survivor. A puppetmaster.

Petals said...

auugghhH!! I am having my shot now!

Joe in NY said...

I really think they are stupid. They are so obsessing over Russell it's like Boston Rob and the other tribe don't exist.

Petals said...

CBS is playing me like a fiddle.

Joe in NY said...

I'm dying...

monty924 said...

Ralph can't spell either, LOL!

Petals said...

AAAGGHHHHHHHH

uhoh

Joe in NY said...

OH MY GOD! I'M DYING!

Petals said...

So Russell will come back & beat Matt @ Redemption.
Grrrrrr

Joe in NY said...

OMG

Becky said...

No wonder he was so p*o and leaked to the blog.

monty924 said...

Good Lord... gahhhhh

joy n said...

Russell - Y-E-S!!!! For now, anyway.

Petals said...

Joe, if we were in the same room, I would have been anxiety-punching you.

Joe in NY said...

wanna bet they go on a big losing streak now?

Joe in NY said...

His alleged leaks weren't on this season...

Becky said...

Sorry Joe and Petals. I will NOT be pulling for Russell at RI.

monty924 said...

I hope they do, Joe! Ashley's on Rob's tribe, and I'd love to them go one a little tear now!

Petals said...

Becky, what blog?

joy n said...

Joe, they were done with this season when he leaked the prior one.

Becky said...

Hate to leave good company but I need to let DH have the computer. I'll e-see some of you Sunday.

monty924 said...

I'm depressed! ;-)

Petals said...

What leaks? I want spoilers!

monty924 said...

Sucks had the leaks for both of his last two seasons. No one knows for sure were the leaks came from, though.

joy n said...

Matt is younger and stronger. Might not be as easy as Russell thinks. Matt wants back with the tribe pretty badly himself.

Petals said...

BF - Bash & Keira will love one another. xoxox

joy n said...

Russell denies the leaks but laughs everytime he's asked if it was him. I don't doubt for a minute this sore loser would leak everything he knows.

Jennasmom said...

Oh, I hate that Steve guy! Russell, I hope you come back to bite their tails! This is going to be so boring without Russell. Love him or hate him, he gave some life to an otherwise boring tribe. Rob will eat them alive!

KB said...

Watching it right now! :)

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Watching Russell and his women is making me think of Charlie Sheen and his "goddesses".

Some women really make the rest of us look bad, ya know?

Jennasmom said...

So true, Lifeguard Laurie! So true!

Margo said...

**Pool Update**

What is Russell gonna do for food?? How is is gonna survive without his posse?? Is it just me or were his pits gross. eeewwwww.

Dead & Buried
Francesca Hogi - Petals, ML

Margo aka The Lifeguard

ML said...

Dead and buried. That's just brutal Margo lol. But it's all good. Although I liked Francesca as a person, she had no game. Petals and I are both happy with Matt staying I think. I just hope he can beat Russell next week at Redemption (sorry Petals). Russell's game seems to be getting old, too. I don't see how they can ever bring Russell or Rob back again if they lose this time.


So far I do like Rob though. No one will probably even read this it's so late, but does anyone else notice Rob's 'Godfatherly' ways with the tribe members like his whole putting his right hand on the shoulder of who he wanted Phillip to vote for last week like it was the signal for a hit? He is a character.

Anonymous said...

ML, I thought the same thing about Rob.

My word verification is "ectlumps." Sounds like something you'd see on Russell's pits. Ugh!

Just trying something here.

It worked. Finally got a pic up.
