Survivor South Pacific 11/09 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!

Savaii folks lit into Cochran as expected.

Immunity is down to one winner this week. It's in rounds, first round is a coconut target shoot, second is cracking a coconut and filling mouth with juice, through an obstacle course and filling a tube with it.

Uh-oh for Cochran ... JIM won immunity!

Huh? Jim is saying he's going to give Ozzy his necklace and convince people to vote for Cochran? That would be silly!

8:22 PM and Tribal is starting? Hmmm ... 

Lots of big macho talk, but Jim kept his immunity necklace.

The tally:
Ozzy
Cochran
Ozzy
Cochran
Ozzy
Ozzy
Ozzy
Ozzy

Ozzy us out again to Redemption.

Whoa! Another immunity challenge! It's one where Jeff offers them food to skip the challenge. ALL of the old Upolu sits out to eat with only the three ex-Savaii compete. Jim was out first and snapped at Jeff. Heh. He annoys me. Whitney wins immunity.

Albert thinks Dawn is sneaky and more of a threat than Jim. Jim is the blatant target. Coach says Jim is a rhinoceros who can charge at you while Dawn is a snake -- both can kill you.

The tally:
Edna
Edna
Edna
Jim
Jim
Jim
Jim
Jim

Jim gets to meet up with Ozzy and Keith at Redemption.

Hi folks!

Joe in NY said...

Here's hoping Cochran has the cojones to own his move. If he does, I'll cheer for him. If he doesn't...I hope he's next to go! LOL

Joe in NY said...

Well...I mean after Ozzy. :)

Petals said...

Hey everyone! Hey sweetie!

Joe in NY said...

hey babes. How was your day?

Petals said...

Pumpkin - Ozzy is the coolest to watch, why do you want so badly for him to leave?

monty924 said...

Hello everyone...

Petals said...

oh babe - my day? Too much. later.


xoxoxoxoxoxoxo cuz i am here with you now.

Hi Jackie, you workin' woman !

Joe in NY said...

I think they have a lot to learn: it's an INDIVIDUAL game. You'd think they would have learned from Rob's win.

Petals said...

Hey Monty (and lil Joey)

Anonymous said...

Sorry, but Cochran is a rat. He has guaranteed to never make it to the end.
MHO

Monty, how is your pup?

Penny

Joe in NY said...

Petals, Ozzy is cool for YOU to watch because you lust after him. As a "character" on the show he's kind of boring.

Jackie said...

I'd like to see Cocgran last for a while.

Anonymous said...

No, no - I really don't want Ozzy to leave, just yet. ;-)

Penny

Jackie said...

Cochran, that is. I don't think he owed his previous tribe any loyalty. It's not like he fit in with them or anything.

Joe in NY said...

Penny, how are his odds of getting to the end any worse than they were with Ozzy's tribe? If anything, they went up. As the "rat", he becomes a possible choice for anyone on Coach's tribe to take to the end because they know his old tribe mates are pissed at him.

monty924 said...

Lil Joey has found his independence... he doesn't want to watch Survivor with me, LOL

Joe in NY said...

I agree with you Jackie. At least based on the edit, they treated him like crap

monty924 said...

I'm rooting for Cochran too. I don't this he has a chance if all of his tribe members are on the jury, but I like his guts.

Anonymous said...

Yes, it is an individual game, but the past has proven, the team who is cohesive when they go in to the merge, has control. When they get to the final 5, is when they get really cutthroat because they all can't win.

Fight, Ozzy - do it!!!

Penny

Joe in NY said...

immunity already?

Joe in NY said...

is there a double elimination tonight or are we just expecting a whole lot of drama?

monty924 said...

This challenge probably took forever in real time!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hello everyone! I always that is was coconut MILK?

Becky said...

Hey, everyone! I hope we have more here than Sunday night.

Oops, Ozzy is toast unless he can pull one out of a hat -- or his hair.

Anonymous said...

I think you are right Becky. He's toast unless there is a miracle.

Penny

Joe in NY said...

would she be penalized if she had vomited into the tube? (I mean other by us who had to watch it.)

Petals said...

Joe, pumpkin, sweetheart - oh yes, Ozzy is definitely good for me to watch.

Hey Becky!

monty924 said...

I ate late so probably would have hurled with her...

Petals said...

Isnt coco water like a natural laxative? ouchie

Anonymous said...

Well, it looks like it'll probably be Ozzy leaving...:-(

Cochran said Jim, but since Jim won immunity, I can see them picking Ozzy. :-*( Not happy.

Here it goes...one by one...

Penny

monty924 said...

I think so, Petals. None for me - thanks!

What is our drinking word tonight?

Joe in NY said...

Penny, that's true about coherence. But the opportunity for someone is always when the numbers get down. When it is down to 7 and Cochran's number is up (?), one contingent may want to make a move and that's Cochran's opportunity.

He wasn't in much better shape with his old tribe. They tried to vote him out like 3 times and blamed him for every comp they lost. I really don't see him being in any better shape with them. A lot can happen now and it is rare for anyone to be able to hold an alliance of 6 together all the way to the end. It's usually groups of 3 or 4 that make it.

Petals said...

*holding torch for Ozzy*

Ed in Ohio said...

If Ozzy goes tonight it's because of his mis-use of the Immunity Idol (again!)

Joe in NY said...

Dawn's like a day late and a dollar short on flipping. They don't need her now. Last tribal was the time to flip.

monty924 said...

Now she's considering flipping her vote again? She's a waffleler

monty924 said...

D-U-M-B

Petals said...

Jim is kinda abrasive, but I like him.

Joe in NY said...

um...why can't Jim keep the necklace and still make the same speech??? Giving Ozzy the necklace just makes their tribal coherence that much more obvious...

Petals said...

(babe - my guy in real life is putting me thru the ringer, man. I am trippin)

monty924 said...

This has to be the dumbest group of Survivors ever. Ugh!

~~Silk said...

Lurking....

Ed in Ohio said...

Isn't kind of early for tribal council?

Petals said...

I can see how alot of guys would feel "less than' around Ozzy. His beauty would be intimidating.

(you can gaga now)

Petals said...

Hi Silk. I thought i heard you rustling around up there in the loft. : )

Petals said...

woow - nice speech, mi amore

monty924 said...

Vote Ozzy out... sorry Petals! :(

Anonymous said...

Yes, Ozzy made the mistake - again.

Joe, you are right. Cochran will not get any further with his new tribe. He turned on his first tribe, he'll turn on them.

They talk about honor, but the other team is as cocky.

Penny

Joe in NY said...

So, Honorable Jim told Ozzy he'd give him the necklace and then kept it...I think he just pulled a Cochran. LMAO

Anonymous said...

Double elimination?

Joe in NY said...

Gee, Ozzy would still have it if he wasn't a dumb ass... (sorry, honey)

Becky said...

Really it would be better to send Ozzy to Redemption over Jim. He is a better all around player.

Anonymous said...

But I don't want Ozzy to fight Keith.

Penny

Joe in NY said...

Was that an obscenity made out of Cochran's name?!?!?!

monty924 said...

Don't worry... he'll be back, I'm sure of it. ;)

Anonymous said...

I can't stand the smug look on the other team's face. They think they have it in the bag. Dang.

Penny

Becky said...

Does anyone else bring in the food beside Ozzy?

Joe in NY said...

Real childish, Ozzy...

Petals said...

I'm not worried. Really. Not at all. The worst part is that he wont be on camera as much. {{Ozzy}}

Petals said...

*drinking*

omg, what a day

Ed in Ohio said...

Who's a coward now Jim?

Donna in Alabama said...

Hi all, I'm lurking with ~Silk as always.

Petals said...

Laurie isnt here, but for when she drops in: HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURIE!

monty924 said...

Joe in NY said...
I think he just pulled a Cochran. LMAO
*******
Why yes he did! Honorable schmonorable. Jim is a JOKE! Sorry to Jim's pool players. :)

Becky said...

I don't want to see him fight Keith either. I don't want anyone on his team to go home, but they will get picked off one by one. But let's face it, Ozzy IS a better player than anyone on his team.

Jackie said...

The timing of tonight's episode is very peculiar. I guess we'll see what's up. Tribal NEVER started at 8:22 PM before!

monty924 said...

That's a meal for four... not two, LOL

Petals said...

oh, to whoever asked if anyone else provides food? I dont think so. I think Ozzy was the shizzle. The others will be kinda hungry, ahahahahhaha

Joe in NY said...

@Ed LMAO

I totally agree. Typical Survivor psychology. Hate everyone for playing just like you!!! It's just human nature, happens on BB all the time also.

Jim talks about honor and everything but we've seen his confessionals. He was putting together an alliance to take out Ozzy at one time. They all play the same game and just hate the people that are better at it. But rather than admit they were outplayed, they try to make it seem like the other person cheated or was somehow unworthy.

Jackie said...

Another immunity challenge!

Becky said...

Double elim tonight.

Petals said...

(with a beauty like Ozzy on Redemption, the cameras will surely spend more time there)

Joe in NY said...

Based on previous balancing game, I would guess Edna and Cochran will be out in 60 seconds.

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone. Was the eviction tonight quick or what? Are they going to go for a double?

SueGee on the Left Coast

Petals said...

oooo....kewl challenge

monty924 said...

Ah, yes. The temptation challenge!

Anonymous said...

You are right, Joe. Ozzy played the wrong hand. Why would they ever think Cochran would help them? He started out as a snake and he will continue to be one.

Brendon talks about honor, but look how he treated some of the people on his tribe? No different.

I've always been told that sugar is better than vinegar; which includes how you treat people.

This will prove who is to smug.

Penny

Petals said...

Hi lurker Donna :)

monty924 said...

Sweet...

Joe in NY said...

They could screw with them by dropping out immediately. LMAO

Joe in NY said...

I'm a little disappointed in Coach...even he knows he broke the Warrior Code.

Becky said...

I hate their smugness.

monty924 said...

Jim getting a little snippy there with Jeff. Drinking on that!

Anonymous said...

Jim is gone tonight.

Dawn, shut up!!!

Penny

Becky said...

Jim is gone.

Joe in NY said...

That seemed a little unsportsmanlike of Brandon to celebrate Jim dropping out.

Dawn still sucking up, but what's she got to win: be number 8 when there's 9 people left????

Petals said...

oh gag me.

Joe in NY said...

They really should be trying harder to flip 2 or 3 of the others to establish an alliance on 4 or 5

Ed in Ohio said...

Yay Whitney!

Becky said...

All that gobbling down of the sweets is going to cause some sick people -- good! Glad Whitney won. Dawn has made it obvious that she has flipped.

Petals said...

pumpkin-omg the day! got crazy! still reeling

Anonymous said...

But, Jim should get snippy. Every one of them are going to be eliminated one by one. Even when they come back, they are gone again.

I am glad Whitney won. But it won't matter because they will eliminate everyone of them anyway.

:-(

Inclusive Albert? Now who is being smug in the game? :-(


Penny

monty924 said...

Me thinks Jim is going packing. But... what did Albert mean by what he said? Hmmm

Joe in NY said...

isn't it odd that CBS didn't advertise the double elimination tonight? They always did before.

Joe in NY said...

I think Albert wants to make sure it is still just a group of 6. I bet he tries to get Dawn voted out.

Jackie said...

Joe - I was thinking that too. It wasn't mentioned in any promos I saw.

Petals said...

gimme a break.

Joe in NY said...

That's a good plan, actually. Based on numbers, core 5 could run the game at this point.

Petals said...

I liked cochrane, I root for the underdog. But when they have OVERdog attitude, I'm out. Not like the Coch anymore. Yes, I shortenened his name on purpose.

Joe in NY said...

Dawn's sucking up is almost making porn star Ozzy's acting look good!

monty924 said...

Okay, I'm slow, lol. I get it and Albert is right. They probably should get rid of Dawn. I'm so happy that I don't have to play Survivor for real.

Anonymous said...

I think Albert wants to make it clear that every one from the other team is going to go. That they are not inclusive with their people.

Cochran think he has it in the bag. But Jim is right, Cochran is a perfect 3rd place person because every one voted out will dislike him. I wouldn't think that way, though.

Penny

Donna in Alabama said...

I did not see any promos for double elimination but on the info on the guide on my Direct TV, it says it is double elim.

Joe in NY said...

Frankly, Jim is smarter than Dawn. He's not just the Rhino.

monty924 said...

CBS loves to keep us guessing!

Becky said...

LET IS BE DAWN!!

Petals said...

so will it be 3 in the elimination challenge? keith, Ozzy & ?

Becky said...

LET IT BE DAWN is what I meant.

Joe in NY said...

Petals, if you remember last time they ended up with like 5 people on Redemption Island at one point.

monty924 said...

****DRINKING****

Joe in NY said...

Brandon is always doing math but just isn't any good at it. LOL

Anonymous said...

How smug can you be. You are a bug to be stepped on Brendon.

Ugh!!!

And shut up again, Dawn.


Penny

Joe in NY said...

Whitney is suddenly looking prettier to me...

Anonymous said...

This is the time, Cochran needs to see just where he stands. He's last place.

Penny

monty924 said...

Yet she didn't feel bad for Cochran when he was vilified!

Joe in NY said...

OMG She totally trashed Cochran after his vote and now she's not a bully?!?!? People really do lack self-awareness.

Petals said...

hey, yeah, Whitney is right! Where the EFF is the Christianity????? Where is the koom-ba-ya? (sp)

Anonymous said...

OMG! They were even at the merge. How does he say they were excluded???

Idiots all of them.

Penny

monty924 said...

Joe, you are too soft. lol

Ed in Ohio said...

It's funny how they act when the 'shoes on the other foot'

Petals said...

wow. Sucks like a Dyson!

Becky said...

I wish they would do a new twist. Send five people to Redemption -- and then let them be a new tribe!

Joe in NY said...

That was the smarter move. It does get interesting now. At 9, Power 5!!! But will anyone jump?

monty924 said...

Well, either smug Jim or Ozzy will probably be back. Next week should be G O O D!

Anonymous said...

Sure she yelled at Cochran. Do you not think Brandon and Coach would have yelled at one of their own if it had been reversed? Of course they would have. The only smarter thing they did was get rid of the people they didn't like at the beginning. That's what Savaii should have done to Cochran, but they didn't. That is why they are going to be picked off, one by one

Penny

Joe in NY said...

LOL, Monty. I wrote that before she started crying. She just looked more natural than she did at the beginning...

Ed in Ohio said...

And yes Joe Whitney is kinda' pretty and I totally agree with you on your earlier comment regarding Jim.

Anonymous said...

The other team is just as smug.

Penny

monty924 said...

LOL, Petals. Sucks like a Dyson...
Best comment tonight

Anonymous said...

I hope they do a twist because right now, it's too predictable. Not interesting at all.

Penny

Joe in NY said...

Penny, we know you like Ozzy's tribe. But if you step back a little, she was far meaner to Cochran than she needed to be. It is a game and they should realize that. But if she wants to yell and tell him that he "disgusts her", don't get all weepy about being on the outside.

Joe in NY said...

Ozzy is so effing full of himself...

Petals said...

Coach said " the family"???? Who does he think he is, Charlie Manson?

monty924 said...

Gotta admit that Ozzy looks pretty HAWT on top of the tree! :)

See you all later. Off to Harry's Law!

Anonymous said...

Sucks like a Dyson. Oh, Petals - that is good. Have to remember it! OL

Penny

Joe in NY said...

LOL. His whole effing alliance is on Redemption Island and Jim's telling the camera what a brilliant game he played?!?!? Heck, if he blames Cochran for flipping he should take the blame for keeping him there. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Petals, he was playing the Godfather not Uncle Charlie.

monty924 said...

Just one more... I agree Joe. People lack self awareness when they are the one in the frying pan. Whitney didn't look very sympathetic to me tonight, tears and all!

Jackie said...

My blog pool gal Sophie is still under the radar yet playing a shrewd game.

Anonymous said...

Joe, she was already on the outside. It's just that she wanted cohesiveness, but knew he was very iffy.

Penny

Becky said...

Be back Sunday.

Anonymous said...

The other team got rid of all the people who caused them problems. Savaii should have, too. Right now, it is very predictable. I'd like to see something change, even if one of Coach's people win. This is as predictable as Boston Rob winning last time. LOL

Penny

Petals said...

Jackie - I think Sophie willl be one to be reckoned with. She is brainy, patient. Perfect for you! :)

Ed in Ohio said...

QUESTION: When Christine was on Redemption Island she had 4 or 5 wins but always remained on RI afterward. How come when Ozzy beat her last week he was allowed to come back to the tribe immediately, leaving no one on RI?

Joe in NY said...

Ed,

That's the way it always goes when someone comes back. At some pre-ordained time, the victor at Redemption returns.

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks for your reply Joe,

It just seems weird to me that there was no one on redemption island from last weeks show to this weeks'.

And now we have 3 tribesman there. We went from having the same person there for many shows, to no one there at all, and now there's 3. Just seems too random and disjointed. (imho) :)

Laurie said...

thanks for the birthday wishes, Petals. I had a fabulous day and plan to celebrate until Thanksgiving when I give it over to the Turkey and football.

Anonymous said...

Nobody likes a rat. All Cochran did was buy himself a few more days and trash his persona for all the world to see. As soon as the tribe he betrayed is picked off one by one, of course he will be the next to go. I'd rather have left with a modicum of respect two or three days earlier than to turn my back on my tribe. Ozzy really put himself on the line to ensure that when the merge occurred the tribes would be equal. Unearned benefit to Coach's tribe IMO. And all Cochran got was a few more hours to play the game. He will never win.
