Survivor: Redemption Island - 5/04 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!

Tonight should be interesting with so many on Redemption Island!

Product placement phones with video. Yep, the loved ones call. Even Redemption Island got their calls.

Duel Time -- Winner will spend time with loved one in person. Breaking tiles. One goes home, three stay, winner gets loved one visit. Mike (not Matt) wins the duel and the visit! Matt and Ralph stay in and Steve goes home (jury).

Mike can visit his mom or give the Matt and Ralph their visits. Or ... he can let everyone on Ometape have a visit. He chose to give the visit to his enemies.

Tree mail - another immunity challenge ahead. Rob wants Andrea gone. Uh-oh, lots of stairs. Puzzle staircase risers, first one to solve it and build their stairs wins. Phillip, Ashley and Natalie won't win.

Rob wins!

Tribal Council -
The tally -- Andrea, Phillip, Andrea, Andrea, Andrea ... bye-bye Andrea. She's off to Redemption.

Hello Jackie... glad its finally Wednesday! YAY

Got my driver and my drinks ready. I brought some extras in case anyone forgets theirs. There's also some ultimate nachos over by the bar.

Petals said...

*splash*
I am sooo excited! Woohoo!! I brought Mojitos for the SAMy game.

monty924 said...

That guarantees that no Zappetera will make it to the end, unless they mount an OZZY immunity run. That's if they even get back...

monty924 said...

Oh, hey Petals. Didn't see you there!

Petals said...

I'm so glad Mattie isnt all alone anymore. He was getting fried.

Petals said...

mmmmm....thanks for the Nachos, Monty. They go perfect with Mojitos!

Petals said...

mmm...Ozzy *sigh*. homina homina

monty924 said...

Who else thinks Rob will be the first gone from Ometepe?

Jackie said...

Nothing against Boston Rob, but I'd be stunned if the rest are foolish enough to keep him around at this point.

Petals said...

Not me. I cannot imagine a Rob ousting.
ANd worse, I am worried that SAM is gonna make it far. Grr. Yeah, he is entertaining but...pink underwear, feather? He is like a gay Indian superhero.

Jackie said...

If Rob ever made it to the final two/three, he'd probably win if they based it on gameplay. He's in top form this season and his tribemates are dense.

monty924 said...

I don't believe SAM could win it, but stranger things have happened, LOL. Family night is one of my fav episodes. I know some don't like it, but I do!

Petals said...

agree Jackie. He is really outplaying and all the other stuff.

monty924 said...

God bless Ralph, but I don't like him. :(

monty924 said...

Yay, go Matt! Damn, Ralph is going on too!

Petals said...

GO MATT!

Petals said...

Good man, Steve!

Petals said...

oooooo...hard call

Petals said...

dont do it, Mike. Reward only the outcasts.

Petals said...

no shocker that SAM is single

Anonymous said...

come on matt!!! -jeannemarie

Petals said...

awww...goosebumps

Petals said...

*sob*

Becky said...

Hey, everyone! I was afraid I was going to miss the party.

What a wonderful gesture from Mike. He just shot to my #2 favorite!

monty924 said...

Don't know what to think of that, other than buying votes? Don't know what I would have done...

Jackie said...

It wasn't like Mike had a choice.

Dang. Phillip isn't getting much face time yet. My drink is getting warm!

Becky said...

Jackie, I think we should toast Mike! Hey, any excuse will do.

monty924 said...

I agree... CHEERS!

Becky said...

If Mike just happens to get back in the game he earned some votes.

Becky said...

Ralph is not only ugly look wise, he is ugly on the inside too.

And Matt is such a beautiful creature inside and out.

Everyone is enjoying their family -- except Rob. His mind is still on the game.

How many more games are left where he can play the II.

Petals said...

Monty, yes *drinking*
Becky, yes - love Matty!

Petals said...

Phillip is so confident. So arrogant.

monty924 said...

it's usually like final 5, Becky but I don't know what RI will do to throw a wrench in normal?

monty924 said...

This looks grueling! ack

Petals said...

yikes, hard challenge.

monty924 said...

Rob - you are the MAN!!!

Petals said...

yeeeekkkkks.....drinking! (not cuzza SAMy, just too much tension!)

Petals said...

WTG Rob. Unreal. So deserves to win. I'd forgotten that he never actually won the big prize.

Petals said...

Grant is cool.

monty924 said...

Matt's gf (what's her name?) is probably going home tonight.

Jackie said...

I'd be dead by the second set of stairs in that heat.

Petals said...

Jackie, I was thinking the same thing. I wouldnt last 10 minutes on Survivor.

Becky said...

Petals and Jackie, aren't you glad we are too smart to even think about trying out?

monty924 said...

Brilliant - Strategy... sounds like drinking words to me!

monty924 said...

If they get rid of SAM, that leaves 3 women to 2 men. I don't know that I'd do that if I were Grant and Rob. Just sayin'

Petals said...

No ROB!

Becky said...

SAM is a royal PIA. If they are smart they will vote Andrea out. They can get Phillip next week.

Petals said...

Becky - yes. I will enjoy from the distance and luxury of my air-conditioned home & laptop, LOL
I do admire them tho. If I ever did a TV show, it'd be Jeopardy, and only Jeopardy.

monty924 said...

ARMY - drink***

Becky said...

Let's drink!

Petals said...

DRINK!!!

monty924 said...

Does it count if Jeff says "IT"?

Jackie said...

SAM SAM SAM

Lifeguard Laurie said...

I'm home before the show is over for you all. Yaaay!!! I'm also hungry so I'll look for any leftover snacks you may have. I brought some sun tea. One thing we have plenty of right now in San Diego is sun and heat. It is cooling off now and should be back in the 80s tomorrow. So, now to read what's been now that Rob's minions have to eat one of their own!

Becky said...

Wonder what SAM is drinking or what mirror is he lookiong into? No one can accuse him of low self esteem!

monty924 said...

That was smart!

Becky said...

And so they start eating their own.

Becky said...

Night folks.

Petals said...

she wont survive redemption challenge.

Petals said...

Guess I need to save the Mojitos until next week. SAMy survives. Grr.

monty924 said...

Ponderosa videos are up now on the site. I'll be curious to see how much weight Steve has lost. See all of you good people later. Night!

Petals said...

I LOVE THE SAMy GAME! I talk about it all week with my other Survivor friends. It is so fun! We need to do this every season.

Petals said...

g'nite guys. Back to tennis in Madrid.

Petals said...

Thanks Ms J!

Jackie said...

Thanks for stopping by!

Delee said...

If Rob does make it to the final 3
I am not sure if they would vote for him to win. Will be interesting to see. The immunity challenge was something out of Biggest Loser.

Margo said...

hey all Mom & I are getting a late start. OMG Mike is sooo nice!! I'm sure Rob won't care the sacrifice he made.

smith said...

Its one of my favorite show. I am very very excited to watch Survivor Episodes.

Dusty said...

I know I'm arriving late, but hopefully someone will see this!!!

I wonder if the tribe goes down to 3 players, will they bring the 3 back from RI?

I curious to see how it pans out. So far, I'm not a fan of RI. This season is a little lame.

I can't believe Survivor is almost over. Did I hear them right? Only two more shows? Thank you, Jackie! I don't often get here to comment on a timely basis, but I enjoy reading what you all think about the show.

lOVING MATT... Of course, he's my pool pick, but would love him anyway. If he doesn't make it to the end, he'll certainly get my vote for the hundred thou!

And as much as I hate to say it, I wouldn't count Andrea out on RI... She is GOOD in the competitions.

my wv is habra...
habra-cadabra - and Matt has WON!
