Survivor: Redemption Island - 4/20 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.

I wonder if they're over-hyping the race issues for tonight. This could be interesting!

The recap started off with a SAM! Drink up!

Duel time - everyone is there to watch. Loser will be first member of jury. All three are participating. They have to build a traditional house of cards with slate pieces. Going for eight feet. They don't need to be first, but it needs to last. Mike and Matt stay alive, David goes to jury. Matt and Mike return to Redemption Island.

Whoa! Phillip stole most of Zapetera's rice, then is upset that Zap doesn't want them putting their contaminated rice into Zap's container.

Steve called Phillip a lunatic, so Phillip decided it was racial. @@

Immunity -- puzzles in rounds. First six moving on. They're spinning around, getting dizzy, as they remove a threaded disk from a spool, then onto a puzzle.

Rob, Julie, Ralph, Andrea, Steve and Grant move on to next puzzle.

Boston Rob wins Immunity!

Julie stole Phillip's shorts and buried them. He's stuck in his pink underwear. The Zapetera members want Phillip out tonight and think they need two Ometepe to flip. I doubt that will happen.

Tribal Council - Phillip is sure that Steve stole his clothes. They talked out the race and rice war. Julie admitted taking Phillip's shorts when Jeff asked.

The tally: Phillip, Phillip, Phillip, Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie.

Julie is out and no way will Phillip get his shorts again!

Fist? Maybe because it's only 5 pm here! I brought a full bar set up for everyone. We are celebrating my wedding anniversary - 43 years of being with my best friend!

So, you name it and my handsome bartender will get that right to you! We have all you could possibly desire whether it has booze in it or not.

Jackie said...

Two SAMs in the first two minutes. Has everyone got a designated driver?

Laurie said...

And bu fist I mean FIRST, of course.

monty924 said...

Cheesy bread sticks and party punch for all. Dig in...

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I brought tacos for tonight.

Jackie said...

Laurie - We know neither you or your husband are old enough to be together for 43 years!

Congratulations ... it's wonderful!

Petals said...

Hello!

monty924 said...

Happy Anniversary Laurie!! <3

Petals said...

Have a 6-pack of Silver Bullet - am rolling cheap tonight.

Petals said...

wow - ditto congrats to Laurie & Mr Laurie.

Becky said...

Is Phillip using a foreign language to tell someone that he is SAM?

monty924 said...

I predict a few great SAM moments in our near future, lol. Have drink ready!!!

monty924 said...

I think he is, Becky. Drink up!

Anonymous said...

happy anniv laurie and hubby! -jeannemarie

Laurie said...

We were children!

Now I have "Secret Agent Man" running thru my head.

Becky said...

Congratulations, Laurie. Is that good looking throw bar tender Mr. Laurie?

Petals said...

BFS - I am not buying this act of Phillips. He is trying to be a "character". He didnt go this bat-sh** crazy until recently. He was pompous, but not he is a lunatic. It is all for show. He just wants to be remembered for the next All Star.

Petals said...

LOL Becky! Yes, Mr Laurie needs to be tending bar.
Meanwhile, my pool floatie is desperately empty on once side : (

Petals said...

The food is "everyone's", as long as it isnt fish that the other tribe caught.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals,

I'm here in spirit...barely.

Hi folks.

monty924 said...

3 Man RI... cool!

Laurie said...

No Becky, my husband is over there in the hammock reading a book. The bartender is Petal's handsome icon. She's sharing him with us tonight.

monty924 said...

Yes, Matt... unfortunately you let them. I say Matt doesn't pass this one?

Petals said...

Hey punkin. I just left you a note on FB. {{{joe}}}
I could feel you here. I was reaching out to you.xxxxooo

Anonymous said...

what is a SAM? -jeannemarie

Petals said...

GO MATT!

Petals said...

Jeannemarie - SAM means secret agent man. Whenever Phillip mentions his govt job, we drink. We get drunk alot, LOL

Petals said...

Monty, I dunno, Matt is pretty steady, but he chokes at camp.

Petals said...

eek... I hate these nailbiters! WOOHOO MATT!!!

monty924 said...

Wow, Matt... great! I didn't think you could do it.

Petals said...

wow - look at all the nearly-nude Rafas. Nice.

monty924 said...

Ohh, I like the bartender. Who is he, Petals? :)

Jackie said...

Jeannemarie -- I'm happy to see you're feeling well enough to stop by!

Anonymous said...

thanks for the explanation petals! i now seem to recall that!

jackie thanks! i even drove yesterday for the first time in a month! less then a mile to my dentist, but i still drove! i was psyched!!!

Petals said...

The bartender is Mr Laurie. My nearly nude guy is (#1 tennis player) Rafael Nadal in his new Emperio Armani ad. I have Rafa fever.

Anonymous said...

shouldn't there be another dual on redemption island? there are two people there now.

monty924 said...

SAM is a crazy Man!!! :)

monty924 said...

Oh, drink!!!

Anonymous said...

omg he should talk about how people behave!!! -jeannemarie

Petals said...

Hope you are OK, Jeannemarie. Was it dental-related, your under-the-weather-ness?

DRINK!!!!DRINK!!!!

Becky said...

That qualifies "Chief of Counterintelligence!" Drink up!

Petals said...

DRINK!!!!

monty924 said...

Wow, drink again... SAM is on a roll!

Becky said...

Another drink! We are all going to be thrashed before the hour is up.

Petals said...

Jeannemarie - See? We always get to tip a glass to SAM.

Jackie said...

Super SAM night!

What does crazy have to do with race?

Petals said...

Racial rant. It finally happened. @@

Petals said...

Jackie - LOL. Yeah, super sized SAM, haha.

monty924 said...

This just means that Phillip is "safe" tonight!

Petals said...

Seriously, am I the only one that thinks Phil is just an act? Trying to be memorable?

Jackie said...

Petals - Jeannemarie came close to losing her life due to an infected cat bite.

Joe in NY said...

you've gotta wonder. Is he really that nuts or has the lack of food and heat gotten to him?

Anonymous said...

petals -no my cat bit me on the wrist. spent ten days in the hospital on iv antibiotics, home for two weeks then landed back in the hospital for four days. came home last thurs. have a big hole in my wrist from where the dr lanced it. though it looks much better then it did. dr said it is healing nicely and i can go back to using the computer. jackie can tell you it looked pretty gross from the photos on facebook. if you're on facebook and one of jackie's friends send me a friend request and you can see the photos. i'm the only jeannemarie of her friends.

Joe in NY said...

oh JeanneMarie, I'm sorry to hear that. Glad you're feeling better. Friend of my sister actually did die from a cat bite infection. Glad you are out and driving!

Anonymous said...

figures he plays the race card... -jeannemarie

monty924 said...

I don't think you're crazy, Petals. I believe its all and ACT. He's trying to make it to jury and maybe the crazy man everyone wants to take to the end.

Jackie said...

Unbelievably gross! To think it came from a bite which didn't even draw blood!

monty924 said...

Happy to see you here too, jeannemarie. Every time my kitty bites me now, I think about how lucky I am. God bless you and so glad you are here to blog with us tonight.

Petals said...

Jeannemarie - OMG. Now I DO remember that happening, didnt remember who! Wow, so sorry. Glad you are feeling better. (thanks Jax)

Petals said...

woohoo Julie!

Petals said...

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! SAM maybe o-u-t.

Petals said...

Like he needed immunity.

Becky said...

Jeannemarie, I didn't know you had to go back. I hope you continue to improve and can put this behand you.

monty924 said...

The Godfather lives to fight another day. I soooo hope Ralph goes home! :) Keep our SAM for next week, please!

Anonymous said...

omg joe! i am so sorry to hear this. i was lucky. if i had waited another two days to go to the dr (the mon) i would have been dead. there were red streaks up to my elbow. and yes, we still have the cat despite my drs wanting her to go! :O)

monty -why do you think philip is safe tonight? they need to get ride of him. then again if he makes it to the final two nobody would vote for him.

petals -i think it's part act part the real him

Delee said...

Seems to me the Immunity challenge was geared to Rob, but Survivor would deny that.

The Puzzle Master...

Petals said...

Request(s) sent.

Anonymous said...

thanks everyone. if you have cats and it bites or scratches you, please make sure you clean it out well. soap water and piroxide (sp)

Jackie said...

Yay, Miracle! You know the cat wouldn't ever intentionally hurt you.

Petals said...

Jeannemarie - is the kitty in the pic the same bite-kitty?

monty924 said...

I think when the play of the fact that someone is going home, they never do. :(

Anonymous said...

can we please vote of philip? -jeannemarie

Joe in NY said...

I'm with Monty. They like to set up a straw man to make you think someone else is going home. It's probably Ralph.

I think it would be really funny if after totally dominating, Rob et al ended up losing to someone returning from Redemption Island late in the game.

Y'know, if it weren't for Phil this season would suck...and I don't like Phil! But no one is playing the game. Zapatera killed themselves when they took out Russell and they were never back in it. The rest of them just follow Rob's little Cult of Personality.

monty924 said...

Haha, she hid Phillip's shorts. I love this season!

Joe in NY said...

oooo this isn't gonna be good. LOL

Petals said...

Finally, cuz I've been over Phillip since the 3rd week.

monty924 said...

SAM has NO butt!

Petals said...

High Five Boyfriend. That is the best line ever: Rob's Cult of Personality. Love u! LMAO

Petals said...

Yes he does, Monty: he wears it on his shoulders

Petals said...

I am drinking, that was close enuf.

Anonymous said...

now that is funny! phillip is going to be mad! -jeannemarie

Petals said...

Hey Delee! Just saw ya.

Anonymous said...

petals yes -jeannemarie

Delee said...

We will have Ponderosa now...YEA!

Petals said...

Keep diggin that hole, Phil.

Petals said...

DRINK!!!!

Becky said...

Have another drink!

Delee said...

Hey Petals. been quiet for the 1st half! Hope all is well in Petal-land!

monty924 said...

I'm officially drunk... SAM is priceless tonight. He might just be going home or onto Ponderosa. I feel sorry for the others there.

Joe in NY said...

oh no, Philip has been in upstate NY

Petals said...

BFS, such BFS! Thank you Steve! A voice of reason.

Anonymous said...

his training sucks if he blames steve! lol -jeannemarie

Joanie said...

Laurie I may be a little late to the game but CONGRATS!!!!

Petals said...

I think by Phillips way of thinking, EVERYONE is calling Phil ne "n" word. Cuz I think he is absolutely bonkers!

monty924 said...

Well, there you go... Jeff just admitted that we'll come back next Wednesday and do it again. I say, that was dubbed in!

Delee said...

I would vote him out so he can wear some real clothes at Ponderosa

Petals said...

Is anyone here African American (or "crazy")?

Joe in NY said...

It would be rather funny to watch Phil walk around that way for another 2 weeks...LMAO

Petals said...

dangit.

monty924 said...

SAM lives another day, hahaha!

Joe in NY said...

seriously, do they stack the votes?

Every week, the non Zapatera's votes have ALL been pulled first.

monty924 said...

I would have gotten rid of Steve or Ralph, but I'm not playing the game. ;)

Petals said...

Joe - I think they are strategically stacked/read, sure!

Joe in NY said...

if any of Rob's minions had a brain, they'd carve an alliance with the dopes from Zapatera. What do they think happens when those 2 are gone?

Anonymous said...

i'm confused. if whoever is voted out tonight is the first member of the jury; what happens to matt and the other guy on redemption island? -jeannemarie

Delee said...

With Julie gone he just may never find his shorts! UGH hope the pink undies do not get a hole in them! MY EYES!!!

Becky said...

Whoever said that all the Phillip coverage tonight meant he wasn't going to RI.

Looks like we can drink next week too.

Jackie said...

Joe - Jeff has said he arranges the vote tally for suspense and they usually will show the votes that they revealed during the voting.

Delee said...

David is already on the jury and again there are 3 at Redemption Island....

Joe in NY said...

Thanks Jackie, that makes sense.

Jeannemarie, Matt and MIke will eventually make it to the jury but they are still "in the game" now until they lose on Redemption Island

Jackie said...

David is already on the jury. I guess it's a three-way duel on Redemption again.

Petals said...

Great show! I hope I make it home, LOL.
Jeannemarie - keep feeling better. Joe - I owe you a backrub.
See you guys next time.
XXXOOXOXOX

Becky said...

Anon, Dave lost at RI, so he is the first one completely out of the game. Mike and Matt have been voted out of the tribe, but the still have a chance to get back in the game.

It sounds like Matt is very depressed.

Delee said...

I like the 3 way better because before you had a 50-50 now it is 33% chance to win. Also Matt was dominating the 1-1's

Anonymous said...

how long will the contestants be going to redemption island? shouldn't matt be let back in the tribe by now? he deserves to be. -jeannemarie

Becky said...

Night all. BTW, Joe, it was in the high 80's today and 90 yesterday.

My DH and I have been working at his brother's house getting ready for an estate sale. By the time the house cools off it is time to leave.

See you guys Sunday.

Becky said...

Matt got back into the game and then his old tribe voted him out at the next TC.

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Joe said " if any of Rob's minions had a brain, they'd carve an alliance with the dopes from Zapatera. What do they think happens when those 2 are gone?"

That's the thing, they are all under the influence of Rob's star power. Not a one of them is thinking. Not one!

Lifeguard Laurie said...

OMG - I think maybe Phillip really is crazy. His actions at Tribal are beyond belief. Nice to see his being talked to so reasonably ... not that he is listening!

Amy said...

Aren't there going to have to be some double eliminations? When is the finale? One jury member at this point and so many contestants left.

Brent McKee said...

Just so you know, Boston Rob has a Twitter account. Not much about the show, although Wednesday is Crispy Rice night at the Mariano household.
