Survivor: One World - Season Premiere Blog Party

Survivor: One World, By Zoetawny for jackiestvblog.blogspot.com


Welcome one, welcome all! Yep, it's a new season of Survivor at hand! Zoetawny was kind enough to create a new blog logo for the show and, knowing what she's been going through, she rocks indeed!

Lifeguard Laurie is running the pool -- the random draw has these picks:

Troy Robertson -- Lynn1, Margo
Sabrina Thompson -- Leigh, meb
Nina Acosta -- Laurie, ML
Monica Culpepper -- Jenna's mom, Monty 924
Michael Jefferson -- Jackie, Nana in the NW
Matt Quinlan -- Glenn, Pam
Leif Manson -- Estelle, PDX Granny
Kourtney Moon -- Ed in Ohio, Petals
Kimberly Spradlin -- Dusty, rbennie
Kat Edorsson -- Donna, Rochelle
Jonas Otsuji -- dla, Sue Gee
Jay Byars -- DKNYNC, Tammy
Greg Smith -- Delee, Terry
Colton Cumbie -- Caela, Zoetawny
Christina Cha -- Buzzman
Chelsea Meissner -- Brent McKee
Bill Posley -- Becky
Alicia Rosa --Ann


If you didn't make the pool cut-off, feel free to cheer on your favorite team for the win anyway! I was in shock that my pool pick actually won last season. I guess I can't depend on that two seasons in a row, eh? Well ... maybe I can! We'll see.

Margo will be running the TAR pool -- if you want in on that one, please reply to the cast post I made earlier today!

Survivor fans ready?

Jeff divided them into two tribes -- men and women. But we knew that would happen. They have 60 seconds to strip any goods they can off the truck they arrived in, but they don't know they'll be sharing a camp ... yet. Uh-oh. My pool pick stole from the women!

Jeff gave each tribe a map to the camp, yet still hasn't told them it's the same camp. He told them hidden idols will be in play, but no Redemption Island. (YAY!) The girls are already forming a "final five" as they hike to the camp. They arrive to the camp first and see both flags, so the cat is out of the bag.

They're all chasing chickens. One girl catches TWO -- Chelsea. Now the guys are hitting them up to share. Colton is already alienating his tribe by hanging around the girls. Will he spy for the guys or just hang with the women on his own?

The guys got a fire going first. Sabrina offered a chicken for fire. Hmmm. One gal wants the axe back that they stole. Heh, the girls went to go steal back the axe while the men slept and stole fire instead.

The women now are weaving twenty fronds for the guys in exchange for fire because their stolen fire pooped out.

One of the women (still not good on names yet, black woman) found the Manano (mens tribe) idol and must give it up before Tribal Council. She chooses Colton who has already groveled around for it with the women.

Immunity Challenge time! It's physical -- jumping into a net, balance beam. Uh-oh -- it looks like Kourtney might have broken her wrist. She needs x-rays. Due to her dropping out, the men win by forfeit. They have the choice to take the win and run or continue the challenge. The guys take the win.

Tribal Council time ... Kourtney still not back. She's their major pick to go. But one of the girls (Alicia) wants to get Christina out as she thinks she's in too much with the men. Whoa! Christina/Alicia cat fight ... MEOW.

Kourtney's wrist is broken in a few places, she'll need surgery. She's out of the game. No one is getting voted out.

My verdict? This could definitely be an interesting season, for sure! I just hope the women get together a bit more. The cohesiveness of the men (so far, except Colton) is going to hurt them.

*~*~ splash ~*~*~

Whooooohooo.
Hey Jackie & everyone. Missed you guys!

I got Kourtney Moon in the pool, so Go Courtney!

monty924 said...

I've got wings, wings, wings. All the sauces on the side. Everything from sweet BBQ to Blazing :)

Woohoo

monty924 said...

Thanks for the drink, girl... here we gooo

Petals said...

Homina Homina - That Jay is eye candy.
My Kourtney is the oddbird, LOL

Petals said...

mmm...wings! Whoo!!

Let's go!!!

rooting for the little guy, Jay and Kourtney!

Petals said...

*totally distracted by Jay*

monty924 said...

Hmm, I have Monica Cullpepper. Can't wait to get to know her. Where is everyone?

Joe in NY said...

Hi gang

Petals said...

I was thinking the same thing, Mendy!
I buzzed Joe earlier, but he must be working.
:(
But Margo should be here...?
Jackie is lofting, prolly.

Jackie said...

Hey, guys!

Joe in NY said...

Who's excited to see Rachel and Brandon on TAR? LMAO

Petals said...

Joe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(thanks for answering)

monty924 said...

Well hello Joe. Hi Jackie... hope you're feeling better. I don't know how much I'll like this one camp thing?

Petals said...

"buff lil dude". love it!

Petals said...

Joe - wanna float with me?

"...it puts the lotion in the basket..."

monty924 said...

Joe, Rachel and Brandon are ratings gold for TAR. You know they will fight and cry at the drop of a hat.

Petals said...

my girl is the outcast :(

Becky said...

Hey, everyone!

Petals said...

Should we begin speculating now about which people are gonna be showmancing?

Merrilee said...

The great chicken round-up.

Petals said...

oh no..chickens, my least favorite thing on this show

monty924 said...

Well, we know who isn't afraid to fight the chickens.

Petals said...

wtg ladies! hold on to your chickens.

monty924 said...

LOL, Petals. where's the like button on here ;-)

Jackie said...

I think the guys might have a rough road ahead with a few of these women.

Becky said...

Good thoughts, please. My youngest son Chis is having back surgery today.

The last I heard they still hadn't taken him into surgery. That was three hours ago.

I am a wreck.

Joe in NY said...

Monty, I'll be curious to see if Brenchel are any different away from the BB house. They are still very (too?) competitive, but they will have more control over their destiny than in the house. It was their interpersonal skills that got them in trouble.

Joe in NY said...

Hang in there, Becky. We're sending the good juju.

Petals said...

Monty, these wings are awesome!!mmmmmmm

Joe in NY said...

OMG, he's flaming

Petals said...

Hey Becky!!!!!

Petals said...

I think Colton isnt gonna last....

Petals said...

Love the uniform: (head to toe)

buff, pecs, abs, denim - ahhhhh

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi everyone! Is it Survivor time again already?

Tuned in late. Looks like Kourtney is my rooting interest. Haven't had a chance to pick my personal fave' yet.

Not sure I like the 'Battle of the Sexes' theme. But it just started so I'll give it a chance.

Margo said...

Do I have Troyzan? yikes!

monty924 said...

Sending healing vibes, Becky. Joe, you know they will bicker and be just like they were on BB. I have no doubt that they have a meltdown or two... tears from Rachel included. It is a different world outside that pressure cooker, I agree, but I think Rachel will still fall apart whenever they are faced with a task that could put them out of the race. I hope she proves me wrong. :)

Petals said...

Joe, flaming? He is flaming like the surface of the sun!
Ick factor: HIGH!

(whereas Jay is...as HOT as the sun)

Petals said...

Joe, you hate Jay yet?

Leave it to the hottie to make the fire

Petals said...

Becky - prayers for your son. :( sending healing energy your way

Petals said...

Hi Ed! You & I have Kourtney, the outkast. LOL

monty924 said...

Sorry, Jay is ick!

Petals said...

1st hookup prediction:
the hot lawyer guy & Kim.
then Jay & Kat (the idiot chick)

Jackie said...

Hang in there, Becky!

Becky said...

Thank you, guys. You are the best.

Petals said...

monty - LOL. Jay reminds me of every redneck a**hole I went to high school with!

monty924 said...

Me too, lol

Petals said...

Sangria anyone?? Fresh oranges, lemons, lemons, cherries....brandy of course.

Ed in Ohio said...

Oh lord petals our girl has a motorcycle 'tat' on her back. This should be quite a ride! LOL

To Becky sending thoughts & prayers for your son. All the best!

Joe in NY said...

Petals,

Don't really like or dislike anyone yet. Of course the fact that I'm doing my taxes and only listening probably explains that fact.

I'm tempted to like tattoo girl.

Petals said...

Becky, you could use a glass...*filling frosty glass*

Petals said...

The funny thing is that these chicks don't realize that one of the guys is a frickin Sports Illustrated swimsuit model photographer! Hello! He isn't impressed with you.

Petals said...

uhoh BFJoe,
If you like Kourtney (tattoo), she is my pool chick.

You've never liked anyone I root for, you'd better re-think. LOL, xoxoxoxoxx

Petals said...

great challenge

Petals said...

LOVE LEE!!!!!

Lee is WeeLee man!

Petals said...

uhoh, Ed, our chick is injured (natch)

monty924 said...

Well, you all have a jump on me. I don't even know who my girl is yet, lol.

Petals said...

oh fudgsicle. I am gonna jump on Jay's or Lee's team...anyone care which one?

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! I hate these weekday starts before I can get home from work!!

SueGee on the left coast

Petals said...

Hi Sue!!!

monty924 said...

Well, this sucks!

SueGee said...

Hiya Petals!! I'll take a drink. Do we have a dufuss to play the drinking game yet?

Becky - prayers for your son!!

SueGee

monty924 said...

Completely weird first night of Survivor. Who will go home? I don't have a clue or even know more than half of them.

Joe in NY said...

I don't know why they are surprised. The whole goal is immunity, you'd have to be dumb to give up an automatic immunity for...what? Good will with the enemy?

Joe in NY said...

OK. Why not trade the idol for fire?

Petals said...

*passing a frosty glass of sangria to Sue*

Good question Sue! We need a drinking word. Hmm... no one has said too much yet.
"love" seems to be overused... LOL

Laurie said...

Jumping into the pool ... and it's raining here! Is it safe to be in the pool when it's raining? Now to read what's been going on!

Petals said...

how about "gay" or "little"?

Petals said...

Laurie!!! Hey lady!

Joe in NY said...

so if Tattoo girl gets pulled by medic and they vote someone out the women will be down by 2 already!

Petals said...

Monty, totally agree. This is the oddest beginning. I like it. They are devouring themselves.

monty924 said...

Laurie, as long as there's no lightening.

Becky said...

Thanks for the thoughts, prayers and drink.

Margo said...

They would be so stupid to vote out someone then lose Koutney.

Joe in NY said...

it's interesting that the guys are more together than the women

Becky said...

These girls need to get their act together and start to work together.

Joe in NY said...

Lol. The one person I half liked gone before the first vote!

Petals said...

Okay - there goes my girl. With Laurie's permission, may I be re-assigned to another pool person>?
Ed? You coming?

monty924 said...

The women will self destruct if they keep at this pace. Ugh!

Becky said...

Great minds, Joe. But the situation may change since the girls have fire. Wait until those guys start smelling the chicken cooking!

Jackie said...

I didn't know how well Kourtney would do, but I kind of liked her. Rats.

Becky said...

Petals & Ed, I am alone on my float. I have no idea who my person, Bill Posey is.

Margo said...

see ya sunday

Becky said...

Need to get busy. Catch you Sunday.

monty924 said...

The only thing I know for certain is... I need to watch this entire episode again to get the names right, lol.

The girls are one down, and that could mean they go on a roll. I would like that actually. I still need to see my Monica in action. :)

Everyone have a good night. See you on Sunday/late.

Petals said...

aww, Becky. :) I would have jumped on Troyzan, but I love you - so I am jumping on your float!

GO BILL (whoever he is!) LOL

Whoooo

monty924 said...

Ewwww, you could see the break moment right there on her wrist. Ouch. I fell last Saturday night on ICE and I got by with a bad wrist sprain. Sorry Kourtney. :(

Rochelle said...

SPLASH - Soooo late to the party. I watched it then remembered about the blog. AK, I'm slipping.
I thought Donna and I were out because I thought Kat, who we have in the pool, was the name of the woman who broke her wrist... just because she wore the cat hat to start with. But that is Kourtney so woo wee.

Rochelle said...

I liked her too Jackie!

Laurie said...

Since I am the pool person this time, I'm making the executive decision to add Ed in Ohio and Petals to two of the people who only have one person on the team.

Randomly (since I have no idea right now who those people who only have one are) Ed in Ohio gets the first one who has only one and Petals gets the second one. I think that leaves only one TAR contestant with one pool player.

Now I will go look to see who those two people on the list are.
BRB

Becky said...

Son is out of surgery and in recovery. Thanks for being there.

Petals said...

great premiere party Jackie!

monty924 said...

Laurie, that is wonderful of you to do that.

Have a great evening everyone. :)

Jackie said...

Becky - Yay! He'll be fine!

Thanks everyone for stopping by. Come back Sunday for TAR!

Oh! We had 4 with only 1 pool person. Okay then, whoever goes home next week gets the same privilege. They go to the last two people on this list. If one of the last two go home, the player goes to the one that's left. Now this makes perfect sense to me. If it doesn't make sense to you just hang in there. We are all in the pool for next week and for one week after that.
Lifeguard Laurie (posting as Laurie)
If you disagree with all this, speak up. It won't change anything but I do believe in free speech!

Petals said...

Laurie, may I join Becky on Bill's team?
Nothing against Brent or Chelsea. Just a personal thing, cuz Becky & I are pals :)

Laurie said...

Yes, you may because I'm feeling very generous this evening. Of course, if he ends up winning then you owe me 1/3 of the winnings!!

Zoetawny said...

Thanks for the all the goodies and drinks! YUM! I haven't watched yet but had to take a peek here to see who I got in the pool. Have to wait until AI is over, my husband's fav show, so I will watch via dvr at 10 PT time.

Colton is my guy. Well, I have one thing in common with him, his pet peeve.."ugly people who think they're hot". Are we talking Brachel now on TAR? Hope Colton doesn't get too flaming and ruin his chances.

OK, Petals, will be keeping my eye on Jay.

((((Becky)))) Prayers and positive thoughts go out to you on your son's back surgery. My husband has had 3 back surgeries so I'm familiar with all the different surgical procedures. Please do stop by and let us know how he's doing.

Catch you guys later!

Donna in FL said...

Hey Laurie I know I'm late but can I join the pool? if not no worries i'll just tag along....once I figure ouy who everyone is.

Thanks Laurie! I saw the show but it takes me a couple of shows to remember who is who! LOL!

old fan said...

This season is really stupid. Men will wipe out women early so not really good in the beginning. Mixed teams are much more fair.
