Survivor: Redemption Island - 4/13 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.

At least Matt is smart enough to realize he's stupid!

I find Rob entertaining to watch on the show. But why in hell are these fools trusting him? Don't they remember Lex?

Interesting multi-part immunity challenge -- digging up a club, untie knots, smash tile. First six move on. Eww ... submerge head in trough, go through obstacles, spit to fill tube. Three move on to puzzle. David, Grant, Mike in final round.

Rob looks nervous.

Grant wins immunity!

Huh, not a half-hour into things and we have Tribal Council?

Vote tally: Phillip, Phillip, Phillip, Phillip, Phillip, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike ... Mariano's Mafia does the kill.

Rob told us he wants the final three to be himself, Phillip and Natalie.

Second immunity -- hang from a bar as long as you can, after 20 minutes, by legs only. Cheeseburgers -- white rock, black rock. Black means play, white means eat. Phillip and Steve choose to eat.

Rob's out first! Down to three Ometepe women and David.

David is out! ("That leg's going to be decapitated!," Phillip told him.)

Andrea won after the other two jumped.

Rob told his tribe not to eat the dead fish that Zapeteras caught in a net. Grant nibbles. Uh-oh.

Second Tribal Council. Phillip still with his feather and funny stuff.

The vote tally: Rob, Rob, Rob, Rob, David, David, David, David, David, David ... bye, David! Mariano Mafia hit will go swim with the fishes on Redemption Island.

Then there were three on Redemption Island. Interesting, ain't it?

Yay, its finally springtime in my hood. In honor of it, I have a big ole watermelon to share.

Diving in...

monty924 said...

Can't believe I'm first. Howdy Jackie! :)

Jackie said...

Waving! Yes, Matt ... you should feel naive and stupid!

monty924 said...

Matt is so sweet and so gullible. What a shame!

monty924 said...

We have a lot of watermelon to put away between two of us, lol. Hope some others show up. :)

Jackie said...

Hopefully, if he makes it back into the game, he'll be wiser.

ML said...

Hey all, only here for a quickie comment. They're showing too much Matt; I hope that doesn't mean he loses his next face off.

monty924 said...

Its probably too late for Matt to wise up. The rest of the tribe will always see him as expendable. :(

Laurie said...

Just a quick check-in from San Diego and then I'm headed home. I'll grab some watermelon to take with me!

monty924 said...

Ralph, you dork... that's the game of Survivor. You went in without the numbers. Duh!

monty924 said...

Help yourself Laurie! :)

monty924 said...

Only half of it is spiked, ;)

monty924 said...

Oh God, SAM is going to get me drunk again. Love the feather.

Becky said...

Hey, all. Love watermelon! I still can't believe that they sent Matt back to RI.

I would like to pose a question. I think that anytime Phillip opens his mouth with some of his "stuff", even if it isn't SAM that we should drink!

monty924 said...

Rob's probably going to get blindsided tonight. At least that's what the previews are leading to. Like this challenge, but I hate the water spitting part. Ewww

Petals said...

Hey!

Petals said...

*splash*
Great watermelon Monty!

monty924 said...

Sure Becky... I'll just type from the floor. It will be safer that way.

Petals said...

So we can eat a slice of watermelon for SAM? Anytime he "Phillips-Out" on something, I'm drinking/eating.

Becky said...

I am getting a little "off" on Rob. If he spearheads voting out one of his own I will disown him.

monty924 said...

Sweet for Grant. So hot and they barely show him. hmmm... he could go far, I think.

Becky said...

Yeah, let's go with a slice of watermelon this week. And save the drinking for SAM. Monty, I would hate to se you on the floor. And since I really am a light drinker I would beside you.

monty924 said...

Yes, drink and eat all we want. Hey Petals!

Jackie said...

Why do I find Phillip oddly amusing while I loathed Coach? Maybe Coach cried too much. I don't know.

ML said...

It's so early. Are they going to have an RI duel tonight?
ML

joy n said...

Rob's showing his cocky side. Not good.

Petals said...

Rob's got 'em on lockdown. Fun-NY!!

joy n said...

Whoever gets voted out tonight will duel with Matt next week, no?

monty924 said...

Its okay Becky, I have a long keyboard cord. :) Problem is, the couch will be blocking my view, lol. Phillip is my HERO, haha

Petals said...

Jackie - Coach didnt just boast & bluster. He also had that whole Dragonmaster/yoga/Zen thing that was kinda cheesy.

Joe in NY said...

Bathroom buddies, is that really necessary?

Petals said...

I still dont know why everyone dislikes Matt.

Petals said...

DRINK!!
Who else is laughing out loud, for real???

monty924 said...

Jackie, I agree on the Phillip/Coach question. I'm very amused with Phillip, but I was sort of with Coach too.

Hey, he's talking lore... I'm drinking.

Petals said...

Hello baby. xoxox

Petals said...

DRINK!!!

joy n said...

Phillip is a member of the family....he's the red-headed stepchild.

Petals said...

Mike is right on.
DRINK!!!!!!

Becky said...

DRINK!!!

monty924 said...

I think so, Joyn. I don't think they have time to do that tonight and another tribal on top... but I've been wrong before.

Special Agent... DRINK

Jackie said...

SAM!

Petals said...

We are not gonna be able to drive home after this TC.

Joe in NY said...

I'm kind of tired of Godfather Rob, but it is kind of nice to see the morons who threw the challenge to oust Russell get picked off. They had numbers and they gave it all away.

monty924 said...

SAM is saved! Thank you tribe!

Petals said...

Another week of SAM. I'll bring a bottle of my favorite port next week.

Becky said...

I liked Mike -- but it would be rather dull if Phillip went home. I agree that he is funnier to watch than Coach.

Petals said...

?!?!? Another vote?

Petals said...

BFJOE!?

joy n said...

They are fast-pacing this episode, aren't they? The duel and another vote.

monty924 said...

Haha @Petals and I agree with you Joe. It serves them right and I believe we were all wishing for that the night they voted Russel out. Well, some of us. :)

SueGee said...

Hi everyone! Just stopping by to drop off a cold case of beer because it looks like you need some!! SAM

Sue on the Left Coast

Petals said...

Sue, thanks! You'll see why, when you watch. Phil is tweaked.

monty924 said...

I'd get along fine without Phillip, but he's just one of those WAMBER train wreck's that you love to have around for the blog.

Brent McKee said...

Since they're going with the Godfather theme tonihgt:
Rob is the Godfather
Grant is Tom Hagen (the Consigliere)
and philip?

Philip is Lucca Brazzi.

Petals said...

Monty - you are so right! But I hope Crazy SAM doesnt cruise to the end!

Tessa said...

Haven't been here in a long time. I miss the luxury challenges. I get bored with the one on one challenges to get back in the game.

monty924 said...

I suppose Ralph and SAM are going to become BFF's by the look of this. Ouch!

SueGee said...

Coach was supposed to show up to one of our Survivor viewing parties but hasn't made it yet...I really wanted to see if his head was bit as he thinks it is ROFL Most of the people that I have met that have been on Survivor or TAR are very nice and not on an ego trip.

Sue

Petals said...

Brent, LOL. Phillip is a better Fredo - the loony brother!

Petals said...

girls should do well at this.

monty924 said...

LOL, Brent. Petals, I don't think he has a hope in hell to make it to the end. Just a hunch.

Why do they always choose the food? Do they not know that can be a sign of weakness? Ugh!

Becky said...

Did I miss the RI challenge? I went to get something to drink.

joy n said...

That HAS to hurt so bad.

Becky said...

When I was MUCH younger I could have done that.

Donna in AL said...

Just joining the pool party and trying to catch up on the show. TiVoing through commercials and almost there.
Haven't read all your comments yet.

monty924 said...

WTG girl power!

Jackie said...

Phillip cracks me up.

Petals said...

So they are choosing to starve? Dumb.

Becky said...

Went back and read the comments. Brent, great 8:33 comment!

I bet that David bites bullet tonight.

Wouldn't it be funny if the winner at RI comes back in the game after the challenge.

Petals said...

geesh. Rob is in total control. The Boston Rob Show.

Petals said...

I am drinking!

joy n said...

Rob is coming on a little too strong with even his own tribe.

monty924 said...

RI = 3 person challenge???

Oh, Phillip is getting me drunk AGAIN. :)

Petals said...

Probst loves to bait Phillip, LOL

Jackie said...

SAM Stealth!

monty924 said...

Thank you Jeff! Why sit out and eat?

Becky said...

I can't believe that Rob kept them from eating.

monty924 said...

Hope they're smart and get rid of one of the Russell stabbers!

Petals said...

Yikes. I like David. Poor Steve.

monty924 said...

The Godfather lives another day!

Becky said...

Did Zap ever win a challenge after they voted out Russell? Don't you know Russell is LHAO?

Jackie, can we spend the night? I think we had too much SAM toasts.

Jackie said...

Yes, Becky. We have plenty of room here.

Donna in AL said...

Rob is so entertaining... cocky yes and Phillip really spinning the tales!

joy n said...

If it gets down to Ometepe final six, Rob will be in trouble. Grant already getting restless here and if Matt comes back, he's screwed.

Delee said...

Now there are 3 on RI...HUH! Matt Mike and David or am I confused!

Tessa said...

Could there be a final three of all girls? Those girls rocked the challenge tonight.

monty924 said...

Oh great preview. SAM ramps it up a notch next week. Kissing my liver goodbye right now. :)

Night folks!

monty924 said...

You're not Delee... I posed the same thought. That will be interesting. Probably not for Matt. :(

Jackie said...

Sooner or later they're going to have to realize they need to mutiny Rob.

Brent McKee said...

Thinking over the Godfather analogy in light of the second half of the episode, I'm beginning to wonder if Grant really is Tom Hagen. I think it's possible that he's Tessio instead and he just hasn't had the opportunity to express his inner Tessio-ness.

Jackie said...

Brent - Too bad I don't have a "like" button on the comments!

Anonymous said...

Wonder if Zapatera has finally realized that in throwing a comp an making the joint, and poor, decision to get rid of Russell they totally shot themselves in the foot and it has been downhill ever since. They were just too focused on getting rid of a shrewd and wily player. And look what it got them. Serves them right. I'm not a Russell fan but the guy knew a thing or two about strategy.

Jackie said...

Anon - Plus, Russell wasn't too shabby at challenges, either. They created their own doom.

Anonymous said...

Hi All

I can see a time when Philip and
Grant team up to get rid of Rob.

Rob has gotten for too cocky, allways like him

Times have changed

Estelle

joy n said...

I still say that Rob is playing an excellent game but, at this point, his cockiness may quickly be his undoing. Grant is noticibly perturbed about it. Ashley is making small moves without Rob. Grant may get into Phillip's head about getting Rob out soon and despite his SAM status, he seems easily led.

I'm having doubts that if Rob does somehow make it to the end, he will get the votes but he is playing a hell of a game and should win if he makes it that far. No one else on his tribe comes close to deserving a win. Just my opinion.
