Survivor: Redemption Island - 4/27 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.

Remember to bring your drinks for SAM events -- every mention Phillip makes about being a SAM (special agent man), we drink. Even if it's close. I hope everyone has their designated drivers with them!

Phillip found his shorts and SAM! Three SAMs in the first ten minutes.

Matt's in rough shape out on RI.

Duel time -- Phillip showed off his shorts to Julie. Survivor shuffleboard. Matt is about as unenthusiastic as it gets. Apparently he thinks God's work is done. Whoops! God's not through with him -- Matt stays on Redemption Island. Mike stays with him, Julie goes to the jury.

Andrea feels bad about playing Matt. Grant wants her out, even before Steve and Ralph.

Immunity challenge - log roll. Reward is chocolate cake and milk. There's a "twist package" to be awarded, too.

Rob and Grant -- Grant wins
Andrea and Ashley -- Ashley wins
Ralph and Steve -- Ralph wins
Natalie and Phillip -- Phillip wins

Next round --
Grant and Ashley -- Grant wins
Ralph and Phillip -- Ralph wins

Grant against Ralph -- Grant wins Immunity!

Grant chose Rob then Andrea to share the cake.
The twist will be opened at Tribal.

Rob wants Ralph out next. Grant still wants Andrea, the cake treat was just political.

Rob has his minions thinking if the twist is two players out -- Ralph, then Andrea. Steve is trying to work it against Rob and "Nimrod." They ran to Rob. Now he's thinking Steve should go.

Tribal Council

The tally - Rob, Rob, Ralph, Ralph, Ralph, Ralph, Ralph ... bye-bye, Ralph! Redemption Island for him.

The twist -- a second immunity challenge NOW and another voted off!

Series of symbols on cards. Rob wins! The vote is on. Andrea voted Steve.

The tally -- Grant, Steve, Steve, Steve, Steve.

Now the slaughter will begin. Steve is gone to Redemption. No more Zapeteras left.

Good evening Jackie. Prob will not comment alot. Between watching Survivor--weather down South and the hockey game...back and forth alot!

Jackie said...

Understood, Delee!

Laurie said...

I have my iced tea ready to drink!

On a serious note, prayers for all who are affected by this destructive weather making its way through the Midwest. Hope everyone is okay and "surviving" the assault.

Jackie said...

The storms, starting with the winter this year, have been unbelievable. I too hope all are safe!

Becky said...

DRINK!!!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks...

Anyone watch The Voice yesterday?

Becky said...

Drink again!

Jackie said...

SAM!

Argh, was The Voice last night? I missed it, wanted to watch.

Jackie said...

SAM again!

Becky said...

I am going to be drunk before the half way point tonight the way SAM is going.

Delee said...

Believe they are re-running it tonight at 9p. Saw it on the tv schedule and no NEW Voice logo!

PDX Granny said...

Since the show doesn't start here for another 3 hours, I'll just take a swig everytime someone tells me to. Of course, I'll be running for the bathroom during every commercial once it does come one. LOL

The Voice was on last night, but will replay tonight at 9:00. I really liked it. I missed the very first part, which I've heard was great. I'll watch that part over again.

Becky said...

Laurie, my prayers have gone up for all those in the path of those horrible storms.

Poor Matt. I hope he can pull it together. He WILL get my America's Player vote. It is good to see a young man with such faith.

PDX Granny said...

YEA!!!! I finally remembered my password!

Becky said...

Wonderful news!!! If he makes it to the finals he will win it!

Jackie said...

At least he's not all alone out there anymore.

monty924 said...

Late to the party... happy the "specialist" aka SAM found his shorts. My eyes couldn't stand it much longer.

monty924 said...

I like the log roll... I couldn't do it, but its fun to watch!

Delee said...

Not fair Rob vs Grant!

Joe in NY said...

I actually liked The Voice. They cast it more like Rockstar with mostly people with some experience. Even the people they sent home yesterday were better than anyone on Idol in the last couple years (IMHO)

monty924 said...

Go Ashley!

monty924 said...

Darn!

monty924 said...

Heck yeah... Ralph out!

Delee said...

Looks like Donna in AL is out of danger for now...

monty924 said...

The storms are scary and just praying they don't come my way... I'd give anything for a basement. Stay safe everyone.

Becky said...

Good news about Donna. Joe, what time is the show on?

Delee said...

NBC replay Voice at 9pm E

Becky said...

After all that chocolate I am surprised that those three aren't in the bushes.

monty924 said...

What will the twist be?

monty924 said...

I'm sure they were, Becky but they didn't show it. :)

SueGee said...

I just got home and have some cold ones iced...will I need to catch up with guys? I brought some homemade (mild) salsa & chips from TJ's

Sue on the left coast

i can;t believe i missed almost the whole show!!! -jeannemarie

Becky said...

Boy, Ralph is hairy!

monty924 said...

Yay, the furry man is gone!

Becky said...

Woah! The only way Steve will stay is if he wins the II.

Delee said...

Yikes a 2nd challenge and in the dark too!

Jackie said...

Will there be four on Redemption? Hmmm...

Welcome jeannemarie and Suegee!

monty924 said...

Hey Jeannemarie and Sue - thanks for the refreshments. I was late too. I'll have to go back and watch the first 20 minutes to see the duel at RI even though I know who went to jury.

Delee said...

I thought there were too many left for the amount of days left. This will take care of that, but then 4 on RI?????

Delee said...

At this rate RI and the tribe will be equal in survivors. HMMMM did I hit unto something? Bring back many to battle for who goes to final.

Joe in NY said...

Becky, it was on Tuesday at 9 p.m. which I think is its regular time.

monty924 said...

Cool... way to go Rob!

Delee said...

Rob immunity...wow Who goes home!

SueGee said...

I thought I read that there would still be 8 people in the mix when the finale show starts 5/8. Must be some of them on RI

Sue on LC

Joe in NY said...

These guys are so dumb. What do they think following Rob till the end will do for them? Can they do math? Rob is totally buddies with Grant so the girls are all thinking they'll be #3? Or they will win out against Rob and Grant in challenges? I've never seen a season with less game play than this one. Biggest move was the Zapetera suicide in taking out Russell.

Delee said...

Slash...there goes my pool pick!

monty924 said...

Well, the six did it. Now they have to eat their own. This will get interesting!

Delee said...

Goodnight all and those in harm's way be safe!

Becky said...

That "Zap" tribe was going strong until they threw the game to vote out Russell. Then they were zapped, one by one. Don't you know he is laughing right now!

Becky said...

See some of you on Sunday. Busy day for me tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

stay safe monty. will be praying for you-jeannemarie

hi jackie! -jeannemarie

Jackie said...

Have a good night, all! Stay out of the path of storms!

And, jeannemarie, I'm glad you're continuing to heal!

monty924 said...

Ponderosa videos are now up on the Survivor website. 5 of them.

Prayers going out to everyone in the south who experienced the devastation of the storms. So many lives lost... God Bless!!

Zoetawny said...

Hi all! Just stopped by to say a quick "hello". I hope and pray everyone in the severe weather zone is all right. Mother nature has given us a rough Winter and Spring.

I hope everyone had a good Easter. It was non-existent here which was a disappointment.

I've been laid up in bed since Good Friday because of serious back pain. The two prescriptions I'm taking really knock me out but I have no choice if I want to avoid surgery. The good thing is I get to catch up on my dvr recordings.

Matt continues to amaze me but I feared he was about to give up. I hope Rob has a plan to take the target off his back. Crazy Phillip has to go soon.

Take good care, all!
