Survivor South Pacific Season Premiere Blog Party

Survivor South Pacific

Yep, it's here -- a new season of Survivor! That way too cool Zoetawny made us a new blog logo for the season and Margo is running the blog pool.

The pool participants are as follows (randomly picked by Margo's Mom) --

Upolu Tribe
Albert - Jennasmom, Margo
Brandon - Zoetawny, Keith
Christine - JOEY, Ed
Edna - Glenn, Monty 924
Mikayla - Rbennie, Becky,
Rick - SueGee, Auntie Leigh
Sophie - Jackie, Delee,
Stacey - meb, Sharon S
Coach - Donna in AL, ML

Savaii Tribe
Dawn - PDXGranny, lynn1
Elyse - Buzzmaam
Jim - Pam, DKNYNC
John - Caraleigh, Nana in NW,
Keith - Terry in PA, Dora M
Mark - Lisanne, Donna in FL
Semhar - Sydney, Laurie
Whitney - Karen in CA, Lorraine
Ozzy - Teri, Petals

As the show airs here, I'll update this post with major events. The real fun is in the comments area -- please join us there!

Survivors ready?

Ozzy is on Savaii, Coach on Upolu chosen by ink colors in random eggs pick.

Redemption Island is going to work just like last season.

Hero challenge -- Ozzy against Coach. It's physical, wanna bet who wins? The reward for the winning tribe is "terra" (sp?) -- like potatoes and flint.

Shocker! Ozzy wins and his tribe was a big help. Coach's tribe just confused him on the puzzle.

Christine already put a target on her back by calling Coach and Ozzy "temporary" and then going off immediately to search for the hidden idol.

Meanwhile, the retired NYPD detective is gay. Interesting!

Immunity challenge coming!

Upolu wins immunity and Semhar probably sealed her fate. Very close.

For his own reasons, Ozzy is pushing for Cochran to go instead of Semhar. We'll see.

Tribal Council time ... time to tally the votes:

Cochran
Semhar
Semhar
Semhar
Semhar
Semhar

YAY! Cochran stays!

Even Ozzy voted her out after pushing for her to stay. The vote was unanimous with the exception of her vote for Cochran. Good.

Here we go!

Joe in NY said...

Hi gang.

Personally, I think those are two of the creepiest form contestants.

Petals said...

*hugging Margo, she knows why)

YAAAYYYYY!!!!!!

Joe in NY said...

I mean I kind of like them both, but there is something a little off about each of them.

Petals said...

{{{Joe}}}

*~*~*~*~ cannonball ~*~*~*~

Joe in NY said...

Sorry, Petals, I know Creepy Ozzy is your boy! ;)

meb said...

Can't believe I'm on Coach's team. Eeek! Oh well... gotta go with what your given, so let's go Stacey... Sharon S. I think we have our work cut out for us... well Stacey does anyway.

Edin Ohio said...

Petals got Ozzy! YAAAYYYYY!!!!!

Petals said...

oh no. Joe, you are always "anti" whoever I love. Hmmmm

S'ok. More fun.

I am giddy!

Joe in NY said...

I like Jeff. But I still think Cat Deeley is just the best host of any of these shows.

Joe in NY said...

Petals, I'm not anti-Ozzy. It's not that I don't like him, there is just something a little creepy about him, or just a little off. Like he's got some kind of mild social disorder or something.

Joe in NY said...

If they filmed this after Rob won, that'll make it tougher on Ozzy and Coach.

monty924 said...

Hey everyone. --------->

I'll be in and out of Survivor. New puppy to take care of. Isn't he a sweetheart? His name is Joey! <3

Joe in NY said...

Brilliant, Little Hantz. You're going to hide your name when it's tatooed all over your body...you'll be the only South Pacific survivor wearing turtle necks

Delee said...

Ozzy looks funny with hair that long!

Joe in NY said...

see, that's stupid. She just makes herself a target for the veteran

Joe in NY said...

Good for Cochran. He's a fan boy!

Joe in NY said...

See, something odd about Ozzy.

Delee said...

Monty....just adorable!

Joe in NY said...

Monty, congrats!!!

He's a cutie! And you named him after ME!!! LOL

TerryinPA said...

severe thunderstorms here, hope we dont lose our TV !!!

Joe in NY said...

this looks like a cake walk for ozzy

Petals said...

omg, This is OZZY's to win!

Ed in Ohio said...

I think I have Christine in the pool (unless there is more thsn one Ed).

Trouble is she just shot herself in the foot with calling the vets 'temporary'

I was hoping for Whitney but I guess Christine will have to do.

Petals said...

Monty - that is a cute puppy!!

Petals said...

thats my boy - he's an effin monkey when it comes to climbing.

Petals said...

Terry - I would flip if my power went out during this... Hope you dont lose it. :)

Petals said...

<~~frantic. screaming.

Joe in NY said...

I don't know what they were telling Coach there.

meb said...

Temporary players??? She just made a big mistake!

monty924 said...

LOL, Joe. Not really... he's named after Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds! ;)

He's sound asleep now so maybe I can clean up the kitchen and sit down to watch the show.

Petals said...

What a great start!
*drink*

Petals said...

wow - smart, Edna!

Becky said...

I am on Coach's tribe, but I am pulling for Ozzie. I like his tribe at the challenge better too.

Joe in NY said...

see, that's just rude. Why would they dis one of their own that way? It just creates a rift in the tribe.

Petals said...

It's always so "iffy" in the beginning, trying to learn all the new players and their personalities.

Petals said...

Monty, is that a Boston?

Sharon S said...

meb - I completely agree! Coach is a liability. I do admit it seems like he might have had a dose of humility before he left home. Is it too much to ask it lasts through his stay?

Petals said...

Becky - I can re-dub the boat "OzFest", hehehe

(kidding, think it will stay Miss chevious)

Ozzy's hair. Not even gonna go there.

Petals said...

that's my Aqua Ozzy. :)

meb said...

OK.. now I feel sorry for Coach. That was mean... whether they like him or not... they were the ones telling him how to do the puzzle.. they should be made at themselves. Hope he can recover.

Petals said...

poor Cochran

Petals said...

meb, I agree. They were very rude to him, he deserves more respect than that. Makes me cheer for him, too.

meb said...

Sharon S.. he's good for some laughs at least... let's root for him to stay and see what he can do... at least he has some experience.. more than anyone else on that team..., and yes, the word was meant to be 'mad' ...

meb said...

Thanks Petals.. I'm sure you're rooting for Coach... with I Love Ozzy everywhere to be seen. LOL

Petals said...

I like the "older" tribemates, like cowboy guy. And that saucy check, that is looking for firewood.

And ozzy.

Petals said...

Ed in OH - Oh no...you have Christine, and while I admire her savvy, I think she is a bit of a liability.

Joe in NY said...

see, Christine's just dumb. She throws down on Coach/Ozzy in the first minute then abandons the tribe to go idol hunting.

I'm betting Coach's team wins immunity, though. They're using Christine as a red herring.

Petals said...

Mark is OK, but we've already had one "bear" (Hatch) winner.

Delee said...

Wow Nerd dude is really white, he is going to fry! Why would you not build a tan before you go! I bet the bugs will love him too!

Becky said...

Can't say much for Ozzie saying "let's swim" instead of getting a shelter built.

Petals said...

Bob Marley? Nope,wrong guy - that is your medical grass dealer, LOL

Joe in NY said...

Coach's team actually seems more together at this point. Ozzy's crew seems to be partying too much early.

Becky said...

Oh, and I felt sorry for Coach. There is no excuse for rudeness his team showed him.

Petals said...

Becky - that's part of the charm of Ozzy. He is a waterbaby.


@ everyone - is my avatar too annoying, visually? Seriously...s'ok. I dont want to be annoying.

Delee said...

Looks ok to me!

Becky said...

Joe, I agree with you about Coach's team being more together in getting the work done.

monty924 said...

Back, finally. Yes Petals, he's a Boston Terrier. My s/o has had two of them before this one, and he's always wanted another one. He met him last night, and we brought him home today. :)

I have no idea what is going on, LOL. I'll have to watch it later to catch up on everything.

Petals said...

<~~less in-your-face??

Sharon S said...

Coach is surprising me a bit....

Petals said...

Monty - that face (Joey's) is adorable!

Awww - *sigh* Ozzy is so sweet.

Sharon S said...

Ozzie's got that pirate thing going...looking good!

Petals said...

Hi Sharon - yes! I need to calm-down a bit. I am having Ozzy-overload.

*chilling, composing myself*

~~~~deep breath ~~~~

Anonymous said...

Do we know if Evel Dick is going to make an appearance tonight?

Brent McKee said...

I've taken a dislike to Brandon (Russell's nephew) because he's taken a dislike to Mikayla for being too much of a temptation. Ihave a feeling he'd be comfortable if she were wearing a burka.

~~Silk said...

Brent - My thought exactly!

Petals said...

Brent - he inherited his uncle's appreciation for the ladies...LOL

Becky said...

Brent, I thought his comment was uncalled for too.

Donna in Alabama said...

Coach has always drove me nuts. I could not stand him before.... now he is my pool pick!

They were rude to him and I kinda felt sorry for him.

monty924 said...

LOL, Petals - both avatars are perfect. I kind of like Ozzy's long hair. It's gorgeous!

Petals said...

Monty - I'll *drink* to that!

Donna - Coach is fun to watch, at least you have that....

This is like the Ozzy show (so far)

Donna in Alabama said...

Brandon has old Southern Baptist ways of thinking! I am one so I can say that!! Although, that is not how I believe!

Petals said...

"Ozzy releases his coconuts"...sounds like a euphemism, LOL

Petals said...

That bearded bear is goin home.

Jackie said...

Petals - I don't think so. I think Semhar is useless and they probably think so, too.

Sharon S said...

You think Petals? I think one of the girls is going to go....

SueGee said...

~~Splash~~ Better late than never?? Trying to do this on a patched together system so I might not be here too long

SueGee on the left coast

Becky said...

I don't think it will be Papa Bear, I think it will be the one who wanted to be a basket shooter because "that's a big basket" who failed to deliver. Don't SAY you can do something if you are not 100% sure. Say I will give it my all, but not I know I can do that.

Jackie said...

So far, Coach hasn't displayed his freaky side that annoyed me so much in other seasons. If he stays like this, I might be able to put up with him.

Brent McKee said...

Petals - I'm betting on Semhar going home, even though Ozzie likes her and she's got some woodcraft. Jim's right, she needed to contribute more in the area that she specifically stated she wanted to do.

Petals said...

Yeah, Jackie - I kinda get that feeling now, too.
I hope they don't lose Chochran. He may be good at puzzles...

And Jackie - that tall drink of water is on the red team with Ozzy (eye candy)

Ed in Ohio said...

Jackie, I think Semhar too!

meb said...

UPALU, UPALU, UPALU!~

Petals said...

did the red team hear Jeff say that? they can go ahead & look @ their camp, too.

Petals said...

oops - the idol clue, i mean

Petals said...

Drama queens are 1st to go. You guys are right - buh bye Semhar.

Joe in NY said...

Sucking at challenge...bad!

Causing drama in the tribe...worse!

meb said...

She's right... she didn't do well! And she should go home I think, but Dawn, the older lady, is also in jeopardy. I think Ozzy has his work cut out for him with his tribe.

Anonymous said...

I was expecting BB at 9 p.m. EST.
:<

~~~

Petals said...

hmm. Back to my 1st choice of Papa bear (perfect name, Becky)

PS - Ozzy is not gonna "snuggle" with anyone ('cept me, maybe - psychokinetically *wink*)

Anonymous said...

Does Ozzy purposely walk in front of the camera with his junk out?

~~~

Donna in Alabama said...

I like the geek, no well suited for Survivor but give him a chance!

Becky said...

---, BB comes on at 8:30 tonight. At least that is what TV Guide said.

Joe in NY said...

Petals, they may not have hid the clue at the red camp yet. Although they can look if they want...might find the idol by accident. Sometimes they hide it in the middle of the path! LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

My player of the week... Mikayla.

Looks like Ozzie prefers to keep Semhar. Aaaarrggh!

meb said...

No fair... I like Cochran... that would stink if he went instead of Semar... Is Ozzy still in a relationship? Or is he looking for one.

Jackie said...

Petals - That "tall drink of water" also has a pacemaker. He has to watch physical contact.

Petals said...

@ ~~~

I hope so.

meb said...

BB follows Survivor, so it's 9:30 my time... 8:30 your time sounds right Becky.

Jackie said...

Becky - 9:30 PM ET/PT is the start of Big Brother. You live in that odd time zone! ;-)

Donna in Alabama said...

Dang, it is thundering here!!
We better not get a bad one that knocks out the satelite!! Please not tonight!!

Petals said...

Jax - Oh yeah...Hope that won't hurt him later.

BB Final is next?? I am nearly spent!

Jackie said...

I like Cochran too ... he's like a new age Woody Allen.

Donna in Alabama said...

Ha ha Jackie... IMHO, 7-10pm is the best "prime" time!! LOL

Joe in NY said...

I'm not sure what Ozzy's deal is. Cochran is not James...but how is he weaker than Samar?

Petals said...

meb - Ozzy said in pre-show interviews that he is not going to let a show-mance screw-up his game this time. Good, cuz I don't wanna share.

I like Cochrane too! He is quirky-cool.

Petals said...

Bob Marley is a bit mouthy, too early-on in the game. May be his undoing.

Anonymous said...

OMG! I hope this doesn't backfire and they get rid of Ozzie. Yikes, it could happen. :-(

Penny

Petals said...

Note to self: Send "thank you" card to CBS camera operators. heehee

Ed in Ohio said...

Cochran vs Semhar... pretty clear cut

Sharon S said...

oh boy ...I was nervous. Think the editors are just getting better at setting us up?

Donna in Alabama said...

OMG, I cannot believe that!

Petals said...

YES ! ! !

Joe in NY said...

appears Ozzy is not in control of his tribe

Becky said...

I am glad that Cochrane is staying.

Petals said...

Donna - I just closely looked at your avatar, and it is lovely!

Jackie said...

Petals - Who is it you're calling Bob Marley? The start and getting used to who is whom is hard already without nicknames thrown in. I know. I'm easily confused.

Donna in Alabama said...

Me too Becky.

I think they see Ozzy has more on his agenda than what he tells them with keeping Sehmar...

Petals said...

pumpkin - I noticed that, too. But I refuse to let that thought cloud my mania. :) He will be fine.

Donna in Alabama said...

Thanks Petals... I'm diving in each comment!

Becky said...

Jackie, are you starting a new thread for BB?

Petals said...

Jackie - someone on the tribe called Ozzy "bob marley". But I am calling the mouthy medical marajuana guy Bob Marley. I dunno - i just associate weed with Marley.

Jackie said...

Becky - One is set to automatically post at 9:30 ET.

Becky said...

Going to new thread! See you there.

Jackie said...

Petals - That's blasphemy to Bob Marley! The dude is NOTHING like him!

Jackie said...

MOVE TO BB POST NOW ...

meb said...

Ozzy voted for Semhar! ??

~~Silk said...

Jackie - I think "Bob Marley" is the medicinal grass guy, square face, dark mien, pretending to be a teacher.

Petals said...

*respect to Jackie*
no more Bob Marley. I'm gonna call that guy Snoopdog until I learn his name, LOL.

*dog paddling *

Where are we for BB?

Jackie said...

That guy's name is Jim. Let's just call him that. It's easier to everyone reading comments.

Jackie said...

Refresh the blog and you'll see the BB post!

Anonymous said...

Just glad Ozzie didn't go the first week.

I'm kind of on the edge about Semhar leaving. I like Cochran, but I just don't really know.

We'll see what it does to the team next week.

margo aka the lifeguard.

Zoetawny said...

Here we go again!

Margo, thanks for including me in the pool. Figures I would have to get Brandon. LOL

So far I don't think Brandon has the same arrogant entitlement attitude that his uncle Russell had but it's too soon to tell. I don't think he's going to be able to keep those tattoos hidden for too long. Which player is it that is already suspicious that Brandon is hiding something?

Loved seeing Ozzy back and it will be interesting to see if he keeps his low profile game strategy going. He seems to be much more subdued this season.

Coach is Coach, what else can I say?

Semhar should have known not to protest too much in the very beginning. I know she really did feel badly about loosing the challenge for her tribe but she only called more attention to it. I simple sorry I blew it would have been sufficient. Ozzy must really have had an attraction to her to have tried so hard to keep her in the game. It must have been the poetry she recited. ;) I guess Ozzy didn't know that Semhar would have a lantern on Redemption Island when he quietly commented that he wished he'd taught her how to make fire.

Cochran definitely has a lot to overcome. He may just be bright enough to do it, at least for a couple of weeks. What was he thinking applying for Survivor? I hope he gets some sunscreen soon.

I still don't have all the names down yet. Who was the woman who had an early meltdown? I wonder how long she's going to make it before having another one. Let's face it, Survivor is much more difficult than many fans realize. We're not all cut out for the challenge and most of us know who we are. ;)

Can't wait for the next episode.

RiseandShine said...

Loved the show!
Joe, I think they probably got
Ozzy and Coach for that creepy factor you described. It's kinda a perfect pairing of two different forms of creepy. Interesting.
Cochran is going to have sun and bug bite problems with that skin. I was so glad to see he made it through tribal.
Haven't the females usually worn bathing suit tops and bottoms? I don't get why they're in their bras and underwear this year. Anyone?
