Survivor: Redemption Island - 5/11 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! We're into the penultimate evening of the series. Do you think he'll make it to the final four?

The duel is on -- Andrea is feeling betrayed. Too bad, so sad. Another puzzle ahead, using a handle through a table maze, smashing a tile and doing a puzzle "One Step Closer to Redemption." Three move on. Mike is moving on. Matt and Andrea get it almost simultaneously. Ralph goes to the jury.

Back at camp, Rob wants Ashley out next.

Immunity challenge -- more puzzles. This time with one arm tied behind their backs. Oh, and they have to retrieve piece bags with a huge fishhook. The reward is "room service."

Heh, so much for Rob's plan -- Ashley won immunity and reward! She picks Natalie to have reward with her.

Now Rob is going with the Ashley plan of voting off Grant. Gee, Grant gets a good vibe from Rob. So did Lex. He seems to be waffling, but I think Grant will go. We'll see.

Tribal council.

The tally: Natalie, Grant, Grant, Grant. He's gone to Redemption.

Hello Jackie,
Well, I guess I have to root for my pool person Ashley tonight.

Diving in.....

Jackie said...

My pool person has been gone so long that I forgot her name!

monty924 said...

I guess everyone is enjoying the nice weather. ???

monty924 said...

Fuzzy Ralph is such a gentleman. LOL

monty924 said...

I watched yesterday's The Talk and Jeff said we'd have multiple blindsides between now and finale, and that SAM would finally reveal his 'proof' of being a former federal agent! :)

Becky said...

The Hairy One is my pool person -- but I don't want him to win.

I hope either Matt or Mike, is it wins the game.

Petals said...

Sorry I am late - I have just some Coors Light. My boyfriend just flew 2500 miles & he is on his way from the airport to see me.

Petals said...

GO MATT

Becky said...

Good bye Hairy One.

Petals said...

LOL Monty, "fuzzy ralph"

monty924 said...

Wouldn't it be awful if you finished with the maze first and lost?

monty924 said...

And it HAPPENED! Buh-bye Ralphie!

monty924 said...

Hey Petals and Becky! Sorry for rooting against your pool boy Becky. ;)

Jackie said...

Good. Maybe he'll wear a long sleeve turtleneck on the jury.

Becky said...

Boy, I think I took too many sample tastes of the Margaritas on my way over.

That was supposed to be I hope Matt or Mike win the game.

Becky said...

Monty, I was rooting against him. I usually like Southern Good Ole Boys, but not him.

Hey, everybody! Frozen or on the ice drinks here in my coolers.

monty924 said...

SAM just made a little bit of sense there. I'm amazed!

Becky said...

Close enough! DRINK!!!

Petals said...

drinking

monty924 said...

Ok, I'm drinking on 'well read'... CHEERS

Petals said...

Oh no...the pink undies. Ick.

monty924 said...

Not looking good for my girl... she better win Immunity!

TerryinCA said...

i'm here but i can't watch the show. have to watch when i go home later! saw the hand surgeon yesterday; he released me from his care! my wrist is pretty much healed! all that is left is an inch long scab! --- jeannemarie

Jackie said...

Grant shouldn't trust Rob. I just keep thinking of how Rob offed Lex. Hmmm ... no one should trust Rob, for that matter.

Becky said...

WOW, three hour show Sunday. I guess we will all be sleeping on your floor Sunday, Jackie.

LOL at the pink undies. Wonder what proof SAM has? Is his badge number tattooed on his behind.

TerryinCA said...

Phillip is such a bully...I know rob is smart to keep him!

Petals said...

This is the Rob Show, for sure. I miss the drama of Russell.

Petals said...

Hey Jeannemarie ! Glad you are healing. No more Cat wrestling, LOL.

monty924 said...

Wonder when the RI person will be back. We only have tonight and the first two hours of Sunday night. ???

Becky said...

Is this the last night that Rob can use his II?

monty924 said...

Go Ashley!!!

Becky said...

So much for their big plans.

monty924 said...

Whew... we needed that Ashley, LOL!

Jackie said...

Becky - I believe so (last chance for Rob to use his idol). He might need it. This is going to be interesting!

monty924 said...

Jeannemarie, happy that you are on the mend. Being released from the surgeon is a positive sign. Hugs!

Becky said...

Wonder if Rob will want to cut Nat tonight? If he votes for Grant to go then there will be a 50-50 chance of the girls voting for him to go next time.

Jackie said...

Yay, jeannemarie!

monty924 said...

Really... pizza? I thought it would be steak or something.

Anonymous said...

these players are so dumb. they need to vote off rob. he's going to win if he makes it to the final three! -jeannemarie

Becky said...

Natalie is a sweetie. But Rob should vote for her to go.

monty924 said...

I think its Natalie

monty924 said...

I was wrong, LOL!

Becky said...

He brushed the sand from his feet. Wonder if that means something? Remember in the Bible it says if anyone treats you badly, shake the dirt from your shoes, turn your back and leave.

monty924 said...

Well, until Sunday night! I have my DD all lined up. Its going to be a great one. Were they trying to show Matt as the one coming back?

Becky said...

Okay, catch you all Sunday. It's time for Modern Family.

Jackie said...

I had Grant pegged to go home (if you look at my updates in the blog)-- they hyped the Natalie exit too much too late to try to fool us.

auntlisa3 said...

doesn't rob still have an idol?
WHY DID HE VOTE OFF GRANT?

Margo said...

I think that decision is gonna cost Rob 1,000,000 dollars.
