Survivor: Redemption Island - 3/09 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.

Could it be the end of Evil Russell?

Russell lost the duel and is crying! Uh-oh, he's going to play vicariously through Phillip.

Rob found the hidden immunity idol in his camp.

Zapatara won reward and immunity.

They voted out Kristina, the person I have in the pool. Hmmm ... who to cheer on now?

I have garlic bread sticks with cheese in the oven and yummy marinara for dipping. Beers over at the bar...

I'm diving in!! Hi Jackie!

monty924 said...

Yay, first here!

Petals said...

WOOHOO! *splash* Hey Monty

monty924 said...

Hey Petals... can't wait to see our boy Russell kick some Redemption booty tonight!

Petals said...

Awesome Monty ~ I brought mini cheesecakes!

Petals said...

Did anyone else see the footage of Phillip driving around Beverly Hills in a new BMW, dropping clues that he had won?

Petals said...

Yeah, I cant imagine what challenge they could give them that Russell wouldnt dominate. He may be short, but he is all muscle.

monty924 said...

You mean secret agent man might win this? Heaven help us... sorry to Phillip's pool peeps!

monty924 said...

I love you, ROB!

Petals said...

He told the paps to "check our his website"

Laurie said...

Hi Petals and Monty and Jackie!
I brought really good guacamole and fresh chips. Enjoy!

I can't wait to see the Island Duel tonight. It will be Epic!

Time to leave work so I'll see you all later!!

joy n said...

WHY do these idiots TELL everybody they have an idol?

monty924 said...

Well, there you go Petals, Laurie popped in and out and its just you, me and Jackie! More for us, LOL!

Petals said...

It isnt looking good for Russell's future, Monty. Dangit.

Petals said...

drink!

monty924 said...

Hi Joyn.... uh oh... Phillip just said the magic words. Drink up!!

Becky said...

Hey, every one. I brought the makings for tacos.

Are we chugging for SAM? He said the words.

Boy, Ralph IS hairy!

Jackie said...

Phillip is weird, but he's more entertaining for me to watch than Coach was.

monty924 said...

Come on Russell... no offense Matt!

joy n said...

Come on Matt, show the troll how you roll!

Petals said...

Becky, he said SAM once.

Petals said...

auughhhhhh.....

monty924 said...

Ralph is a dumbass BEAST...

Petals said...

NO!!!!!!

monty924 said...

:(:(:(:(... Bye to the greatest Survivor to have never won the game!

Becky said...

WTG, Matt! Sorry all you Russell fans! I just can't stand the man.

joy n said...

YES!!! The troll is goners!!! YES! YES!! YES!!

Petals said...

OMG. Dont cry. No.

joy n said...

Russell is crying! The giant just fell!

Petals said...

Well, Monty. Now we can cheer for sexy Rob.

monty924 said...

Yep, Ralph is a dumbass!

joy n said...

Russell is so jealous of Rob.

Petals said...

close enough, DRINK!

monty924 said...

I think that deserves a 'drink'!

Petals said...

MMmm...food is good. Thanks.

Becky said...

Ralph is not carrying a full load -- and he is my pool person.

joy n said...

Phillip, please stop blowing all that hot air.

Rob will be thrilled to hear the news!

monty924 said...

Its okay, Becky. We're all wrong every now and then! jk ;)

Petals said...

Becky, Ralph is a tool, yes. But he is still there.

joy n said...

The preview said someone was going to cry at the duel. Never thought it would be Russell. What a wonderful surprise.

monty924 said...

Now I hope Joe's wish from last week comes true. I hope 'tribe Rob' goes on a winning streak! btw, where is Joe?

Petals said...

He played the Deuce!

monty924 said...

Go Rob!

Petals said...

Joe said it'd be harder for him to blog with his work sched & his new puppy.

Petals said...

...or he is lurking, LOL

monty924 said...

Ding, ding, ding.... you go, Rob!!

monty924 said...

Is Intel close enough?

Petals said...

LOL Rob!

Petals said...

Monty, yes! Any reference to him being 007 counts.

joy n said...

I am soooo ready for the James Bond wannabe to go home!

monty924 said...

I think we all are, Joyn. Maybe we'll see his torch snuffed tonight!

Petals said...

Joyn - There was footage of 007 in Beverly Hills in a new BMW, he was hinting that he won the game and told the reporters to check out his website.

Becky said...

Joy, you aren't the only one! So what do all of you think of RI so far?

BTW (OT), how much is gasoline in your area?

monty924 said...

Oh Julie, I hope it does come back to bite you.

Sally said...

Hi everyone. I just got in from snow-blowing, yet again. Is Russell really gone? Was there massive cheering among both teams?

monty924 said...

$3.59, Becky... I cry every time I fill up!

Petals said...

(guess Survivor has a new sponsor?)

Petals said...

$3.35 in KCMO

Sally said...

Becky, 3.59 here too, up 10 cents a gallon since I filled up Monday.

Petals said...

I like Grant!

monty924 said...

Nice challenge! Something new for once...

monty924 said...

Well, Phillip it was nice knowing ya... now what will we drink to? LOL

Petals said...

Becky, your boy came thru. But he looks like an extra from "Deliverance", LOL.

Becky said...

DARN!!!! It's a darn good reward! I hope Phillip is g-o-n-e!

monty924 said...

LMAO, Petals! My sweetest said the same thing last week. :)

joy n said...

Hopefully, this vote will be 4-3 for Phillip to go.

Becky said...

Petals, I agree about Ralphie looking like an extra on that movie!

Gasoline is $3.39 here -- and we have five refineries here!

Delee said...

Ralph = Deliverance!

Delee said...

Gas is $3.59 here

joy n said...

$3.69 up here. It's gone up 30 cents in the last ten days.

Phillip really thinks he is a super agent.

Wasn't sure I was going to like Redemption I. After today, I LOVE IT!

monty924 said...

Maybe our drinking buddy will hang in there until next week. Phillip might have a chance, lol!

Petals said...

Oh no. The spoilers may have been correct & Phillip wins?

Delee said...

JACKIE: "Phillip is weird, but he's more entertaining for me to watch than Coach was."

You just like watching him parade around in his "pink" baggy bvd's!!! Bawahaha

Kiddin!

Petals said...

When does Matt get to come back? I am not understanding this exile.

Becky said...

Looks like we might have another week of drinking games. Oh, I hope not!

But I do know that we will have to endure SAM running off at the mouth at TC.

joy n said...

Grant is my pool boy and he looks hotter every week.

Hope Phillip doesn't screw this up.

Delee said...

Petals, I do not know but if I had to guess I would say at the merge.

joy n said...

Matt has to fight off every competitor until he loses or until Survivor brings him back to the game at some point.

Petals said...

I had my drink ready during 007's TC rant, but he was a medal-winning Army janitor, not SAM.

Delee said...

Hmmmm SAM lasts another week!

Petals said...

Oh no! This has not been a satisfying episode.

monty924 said...

Our drinking buddy survived. Whew...

Petals said...

I hate that Matt is out there all alone & cute & Christian. I didnt know they left him out there all that time.

Petals said...

I think we need to DRINK a toast to Phillip for remaining to entertain us.

joy n said...

This was probably a smart move. Kristina was a smarter player. But we're stuck with the blowhard for another week. Yuck!!

monty924 said...

I agree, Petals! Cheers to the group! :)

Becky said...

Okay, I have to go and let DH have the computer. e-See you on Sunday.

joy n said...

Good episode. Seeing Russell cry and leave was worth every minute.

Kick her butt, Matt!

monty924 said...

Off to finish up the laundry and packing. Vacay coming up next week, woohoo! See you all next week.

Anonymous said...

Gas Fresno, CA $3.98!!!! Ouch

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Ah, nice to see that Russell was able to continue is blowhard ways all the way to the end.

Buh-bye and please mean it when you say you won't be back. Really.

ML said...

I actually cheered like someone threw a 'Hail Mary' pass and won the game when Matt beat Russell on redemption island. That was sweet. Although I hated to see him cry, I, too, Laurie hope he means it when he says it's his last time.

I hope Matt can keep it up out there, but it's got to be tough and lonely out there with only camera people who won't talk to you. He was also very kind and humble with Russell.

If Phillip makes it to the end, his pink undies most definitely will not. It appears he has board shorts though, why doesn't he just wear them?

and $3.90 here!

i missed the show tonight but am SO GLAD to read in your blog russell is g-o-n-e!!! -jeannemarie

Anonymous said...

Oh, I'm going to miss Russell! But it was hard to not cheer for Matt. I'll be rooting for Boston Rob now. At least he's a better-looking villain! I so enjoy watching the villains at work. I'm really liking Stephanie & Krista. Looks like they may be fun next week.

I think Ralph is an idiot. (Sorry, Becky!)

Have a good week, Survivor fans!
Caraleigh

Jennasmom said...

I'll miss Russell, too. (Sob, sob.) I get a kick out of the little troll. He makes the show fun for me.

I have Krista &, yeah, the previews look like she & Steph might be worth watching next week.

I don't care for Ralph, either. But Steve is the one that I REALLY don't like. Just something about him.

Becky said...

Caraleigh, I stated that he doesn't have a full load. Will also say that the elevator doesn't appear to go to the top floor. Ralph is exactly why a lot of people think any male from the south is a Bubba.
