Survivor South Pacific 10/26 Episode Blog Party

Survivor South Pacific


Survivors ready? It's almost time for the show to start here on the East Coast. As it airs, I'll be updating this post with major events.

But the real fun and active discussion can be found in the blog party comments. Stop on in and share your thoughts on the show!

Christine wins another duel! Mikayla is history now.

Hmm ... Ozzy told Cochran that (worse case scenario) someone needs to beat Christine and he might hand off the idol to someone, beat Christine so he'd come back. Hmm ...

Meanwhile, Coach is getting Coachy praying and leading others on a wild goose chase for the idol he has. Oh my gosh, the praying worked! They miraculously found the hidden idol! @@

Immunity challenge's reward is a screening of Jack and Jill w/Adam Sandler.

Upolu wins! More thankful praying.

Since Cochran screwed Savaii's chances for immunity, all of a sudden Ozzy doesn't want to go to Redemption Island.

YIKES! Ozzy retrieved his idol and is once again saying he'll go.  Despite his tribe's disapproval, they do his bidding. He gives the idol to Cochran who does NOT play it.

Tally:
Ozzy
Ozzy
Ozzy
Ozzy

Ozzy goes to Redemption Island. Go figure.

Hi folks

Joe in NY said...

Petals sends her love. She had a hot date.

~~Silk said...

Lurking again. Sipping my iced tea.

Becky said...

Hey, everyone!

monty924 said...

Hi gang, I have an ADHD puppy tonight. I'll probably be in and out, lol

Joe in NY said...

Seriously, Christine deserves some kind of reward.

Becky said...

Well, my pool person is gone for good.

monty924 said...

Where's Ed... his girl is still alive. Amazing

Jackie said...

I need to stop underestimating Christine!

monty924 said...

Oh, I don't know about that kind of strategy. Never send yourself or one of the tribe packing - on purpose!

Joe in NY said...

ozzy is an idiot. Since you don't know what the challenge is, how could you ever pick anyone you knew could win? And since Christine seems to still hate her old tribe, she's as good as a loyal member of Team Ozzy as you're going to find.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey Gang! My pool girl Christine just refuses to die.

Joe in NY said...

I'm with you Monty. Although if the promos are (never!) to be believed, someone sends someone intentionally to Redemption. I assume it was because they had to send someone anyway but we'll see.

~~Silk said...

I wonder if it has occurred to Christine's old tribe that if they had kept her, they might not have lost some of the competitions.

Joe in NY said...

Silk,

Maybe. But Christine did kind of sink herself. After all, Brendon was trying really hard to boot Mikayla at that first tribal but Christine had declared war on Coach and refused to back down. She really has herself to blame for being there. But she sure has fought well since she's been there.

Ed in Ohio said...

Ozzy's got to be kidding!

Joe in NY said...

see, now that is just praying for the camera....

Becky said...

Ozzy is crazy! Never volunteer for anything in Survivor!

Joe in NY said...

Ed,

You'd think Ozzy is kidding. But if you remember what a poor social/strategic player he's always been, it is easy to believe.

Becky said...

I agree with you, Joe.

Joe in NY said...

Brendon is going to be pissed once he finds out how he's been played by Coach. Bad Brendon might come out!

I would love someone to step up and pray to Gaia instead.

Anonymous said...

Please Ozzie, DO NOT play stupid!

Penny

monty924 said...

I completely missed that one. Puppy potty break :)

Joe in NY said...

I'm surprised Brendon doesn't consider all the tribal imagery to be sacrilege. After all, they are pagan idols!

Ed in Ohio said...

I wonder what Petals would think of Ozzy's new hairdo??

Joe in NY said...

Oy! Product placement worthy of Big Brother! Movie frigging night.

Joe in NY said...

Petals doesn't care...her lust is blind. :)

Ed in Ohio said...

Joe LOL!

monty924 said...

Gotta love the blindfolded challenges!

Joe in NY said...

Coach's tribe is playing this smarter...just playing follow the leader. And Ozzy seems to have decided to copy the stategy.

Joe in NY said...

Going to be another close challenge.

Joe in NY said...

Boy, if anybody drops a bag in the water it could be all over!

Joe in NY said...

How the hell did they get tied up in a straight rope?

Becky said...

Conkin is a looser!

monty924 said...

Now we'll see if Ozzy falls on the sword or not!

Joe in NY said...

on your knees, on your knees!!! That sounds down right creepy from Coach!

Becky said...

The little twerp lost the game for them!

Anonymous said...

I can't tell if this was all in what was planned or if it was really screwed up.??

Penny

monty924 said...

That's what you call "OVER ACTING"

Becky said...

I would take a chance on Christine.

Anonymous said...

I hope Ozzie doesn't put himself on the chopping block. It would be absolutely STUPID.

Penny

Jackie said...

Ozzy is SO NOT impressing me this season. Drama Mama.

Becky said...

I think it is unfair that someone could come back after one win while Matt and Christine have such a long length of wins. Just MHO, but that is what I think. It would be faier to say win three in a row and YOU can pick which tribe you want to return to.

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty I agree.. That was 'over acting!! Over the Top.

p.s. Hope little Joey is behavin'!

Becky said...

I agree with you, Jackie. Who would have thunk it! Coach is more likeable (except for his postering) and Coach is so unlikeable and lazy.

Joe in NY said...

really couldn't figure out what the deal was with the rope. I mean they tied and untied like 4 times without incident and then they were totally tied up in it that last time.

Ed in Ohio said...

Becky I agree. Christine is my pool pick and I keep wondering how much more does she have to do?

Anonymous said...

Ozzy might be cute, but he sure is stupid, I dont get this praying thing on reality shows, do they really think gods is listening to someone praying to win for money.

Ed in Ohio said...

If after all her wins on redemption island, if Cochran is the one to beat my Christine...I'll be sick!

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, Cochran shouldn't have just sat there and took that crap. He's letting them think that they aren't voting him out, they're sending him on a noble quest. That's BS and he's got nothing to lose by pointing that out to them. I mean that was also a ridiculously awkward scene.

Anonymous said...

So far the Cochran could win any challenge they've played on Redemption Island. I'm just glad Ozzie didn't agree to go. I do believe Cochran could win on Redemption if he'd have a little confidence in himself.

Penny

Joe in NY said...

why would they not?

Becky said...

DON'T do it!

Anonymous said...

Ozzie, you are STUPID!!!


Penny

Ed in Ohio said...

Is Ozzy trying to pull a Dr. Will?

Anonymous said...

Please, do NOT vote Ozzie off, that would be soooo DUMB!!

Penny

monty924 said...

Me too, Jeff! Confusing...

Joe in NY said...

Ozzy, just tell your gut to shut up.

Anonymous said...

Well, Dr. Will won his BB and helped his undeserving friend win the reflux. Ozzie has not won and he'd be a fool to go. He's playing a stupid game AGAIN if he does this. DUMB
Penny

Joe in NY said...

So, let me get this straight, Ozzy. You are upset you went home with an idol in your pocket last time. So, you redeem yourself by giving away the idol and asking yourself to be voted out.

He must be the dumbest strategist in Survivor history.

Joe in NY said...

Love that, Jeff. Call Ozzy an idiot to his face!

Joe in NY said...

Now, Ozzy just looks like an idiot no matter what happens.

monty924 said...

Petals will be S A D!!:(

Joe in NY said...

Now how frigging awesome would it be if the "old lady" knocked him out tomorrow!

Even better, suppose he wins and they don't merge for another couple of competitions...

Anonymous said...

DAMN IT!!!


Dumb!!!!
He'll go down as the dumbest player - EVER!!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

All's fair in love and war, but all I can say for next week is GO Christine!

Anonymous said...

Oh my - Petals is going to be VERY upset!

Penny

monty924 said...

Joe, couldn't agree with you more. I think Eric what's his name just redeemed himself. No longer the dumbest player in Survivor history. Wonder what Ozzy's old pal Parvati thought about this one? Hmmm

Anonymous said...

Joe, Christine is on a roll and I think she'll knock Ozzy out. I think this will go down in Survivor history as the stupidest move ever.

Penny

monty924 said...

Picking my jaw up off the floor and heading on to my other Wednesday night pleasure - Harry's Law.

See you all Sunday for TAR...

Anonymous said...

And, the other problem is, if Ozzy does come back, will Cochran give the idol back? Plus, if Ozzie does not win, and the team loses, they can't vote Cochran out because he has the idol. Wow - this is amazing ---ly DUMB!!!

Penny

lynn1 said...

OMG Ozzy. Your arrogance just cost you BIG TIME!

Becky said...

I think Ozzy is going to have the title for life as the Dumbest of the dumb.

lynn1 said...

At Least Ozzy is still eye candy. He certainly isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Ed in Ohio said...

I think it was a crazy move....but IF Ozzy wins & IF they then merge & IF Cochran gives him the idol back...that's a lot of IF's..but then he'll look like a winner!

On the other side of the coin..I fear my 'pool' girl Christine is now in the position of "can't win". Ozzy will be her toughest competion yet and realistically he should beat her. And if she somehow does defeat the OZ, coupled with all her previous wins...and she makes the merge, she will probably be feared by the others as a true competitor and have a 'bullseye' on her back'. She's painted herself into a corner.

Petals said...

8:51, CST. I had to log-in to see what was going on, and am about to vomit from fear. eeek. I read the comments, and the one that frightens me the most is: what did my sweetheart do to his beautiful hair?

I haven't watched the show yet, but my love assured me that he doesn't go home until after the merge, so in my heart I think he must be safe.

*sigh* Ozzy!!!! Baby, hang in there! xoxoxoxoxxoxoxox

Petals said...

so far, I am soooo loving my sweetheart's hair...Looks-wise, he can't do much wrong, IMO.
*sigh*

Petals said...

yeah, the new preachy Coach is ... strange. I am surprised so many other tribespeople are digging on the Christian thing.

Petals said...

Ed & Joe - just saw the exchange about my lust being blind - LMAO!!!!
Ed, Joe is correct. He knows me, and yes - I am totally grooving on Ozzy's hair (everything)

Petals said...

seriously, now - when has such a praying, preaching, God-mentioning action been this accepted?

I am a Christian, so I am not offended. But...this is more Christianity than reality TV usually permits.

Petals said...

Ozzy is still my love. I stand by him. I trust him. My aqua-Ozzylove.

Petals said...

hehehe....(someone mentioned a pearl necklace & Ozzy in the same sentence, and of course my mind went in totally a non-Survivor direction! LMAO!!!!!)

Petals said...

whoah, wait. Am I the only person that thinks Ozzy is brave? I love him for his confidence. WTG, C'Mon, Ozzy!!! I totally believe in him.

Dusty said...

I think Ozzy is completely and utterly stupid.

monty924 said...

Petals, I hope your hot date was hot. I missed my drinking partner, lol. You're boy toy was DUMB tonight, but still adorable, lol. I still think it was a lot of ifs as others have said. If he does beat Christine at redemption, if Cochran does give back the idol, etc. I don't think Cochran is giving that baby back, and I can't say that I would blame him. Ozzy wasn't so Survivor smart on this one. He is an animal on challenges, but you have to STAY in the game to be a contender. sigh :-)

monty924 said...

oops, meant 'your' not 'you're'

:)

Petals said...

Hey Monty - My date was tepid, LOL. Obviously, since i was home fairly early. Maybe tonight's will be hotter? lol
But I did get my drink on, and was so excited to get home to watch my baby. And maybe it was all the drinks i'd had, but i truly didn't think he was being stupid. I think he was being brave.
Joe was right: My love of Ozzy must be blind.

Laurie said...

I'm finally watching the show this fine Sunday afternoon. I feel bad for Cochran ... even though I know he doesn't go to the island.

I'd like to see coach go to the island. His false use of prayer really rubbed me the wrong way. Then telling everyone to get on their knees for prayers of thankfulness and then boasting about all the prayer? Nah, didn't like it.

I look forward to next week's show!
