Survivor: Philippines - Season Premiere Blog Party


The show is about to start here on the East Coast. As it airs, I'll update this post with any major events. But, as with every blog party, the real fun is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!

The finalized random picks for the blog pool are:

By tribes:
Kalabaw
Carter : Deb, Pam M in NJ, Syd
Dana : Auntie Leigh, Joey
Dawson : Brent McKee, lynn 1, Zoetawny
Jeff : DKNYNC, Jennasmom
Jonathan : Brian, JonMD1267, Tammy G
Katie : Glenn, Merrilee
Matsing
Angie : Donna in Alabama, Monty924
Denise : Buzzmaam, Karen in CA
Malcolm : Dewan, Margo
Roxy : Dusty, Lifeguard Laurie
Russell : Jackie, Petals
Zane : Ed in Ohio, Russ in CA, Sharon
Tandang
Abi-Maria : Chrob61, meb, SueGee
Artis : Delee, ML
Lisa : Gaylos, Nana in the NW, Terry in TX
Michael : Donna in FL, Lars
Pete : Becky, Rbennie
RC (Roberta) : ChicMc, PDX Granny, Sharon S


Thank you, Lifeguard Laurie! Survivor fans ready?
***************** 

Hidden immunity idols are in play this season. They get to scramble at sea for supplies including chickens. Jeff Kent already hurt his knee in the scramble. The red tribe, Kalabaw, even lost their chickens they snagged.


Matsing (blue) built fire within 45 minutes of landing at their camp.

Jeff Kent, whose knee is still hurt, already is leading his fellow Kalabaw to get rid of Jonathan because he's a repeat player.

On Tandang, RC is getting on with Lisa (not THAT way)! No one seems to recognize Lisa except Skupin, who hasn't said anything. RC makes an alliance with Abi, Pete and Skupin.

Ah, Dawson recognizes Jeff Kent. She tucks that knowledge away for when it's needed.

Mike Skupin tells Lisa he recognizes her. He likes her. She doesn't want it revealed unless someone else recognizes her.

Zane is lining up the gals in his corner. then the men -- Russell and Malcolm. Meanwhile, Malcolm and Denise (the sex therapist) seem to have their own little alliance.

Skupin is already getting himself all banged up!

Penner found a clue to a hidden idol. Russell, not searching like Penner was, accidentally found a clue. Zane saw Russell find the clue. He thinks Russell has the idol and wants him out first.

Immunity Challenge -- First two tribes to win get Immunity and Reward. Race to get paddles, boat out for puzzle pieces, then a puzzle to be solved. Kalabaw wins first place -- Immunity and a fire-making kit. Tandang -- Immunity and a flint. Matsing goes to Tribal Council.

Zane throws himself under the bus in a weird scheme that they'll get Russell out instead. I'm not really understanding. Russell has turned off most of his tribe with his leading while insisting he's not a leader.

Tribal Council time. They're not pleased with Russell being a dictator. Zane votes Russell and vice versa. The votes: Zane, Russ, Zane, Zane, Zane. His plan didn't work and my blog pool dude Russell lives to play another comp!

Am I first, huh, huh?

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie! Thank you for hosting us tonight even though you must feel like the bottom of a bird cage.

monty924 said...

Hey Jackie and Beckie. I'm READY!!

I've got wings over at the bar. Mild, medium, teriyaki and blazin'. Plenty of blue cheese, ranch and celery.

Dig in!

monty924 said...

Hope it's a little better tonight, Jackie.

meb said...

SPLASH! Hey Jackie, and thanks Laurie... Not sure my pool pick will get me far, but I'm still going to have fun... Abi ?? from Brazil... she has an accident, so I should be able to pick her out.

Enjoy all.

JonMD1267 said...

Ok first time in the Survivor pool, hope everyone has their shots lol

Sharon S said...

hi! So excited!

Becky said...

Hey, Monty. How are you? I brought grill chicken salad.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Becky. Good here and yum on the salad. Goes great with the wings.

Okay, who brought the booze? I could use a cold one!

Becky said...

WOW! A crowd already. Hello, everyone. What's the drinking word tonight? Alliance?

monty924 said...

Jon, you got shots? I'm waiting on Petals to show up with something good, lol

Nickelpeed said...

I'm heeeerrrrreeee. LOL

Go. Russell Swan. LOL

Penny

JonMD1267 said...

No shots but a few left over pain pills lol

monty924 said...

Alliance is good. Shelter? Fire?

monty924 said...

Hey, Penny. No thanks, Jon. I'll pass on the pain pills, LOL!

Sharon S said...

I hope they don't send Lisa home first -- I want her to get a chance to play for awhile.

RBennie said...

Whoo hoo. Here we go. Come on Pete please don't be a tool.

JonMD1267 said...

I know I want Lisa to stay around if only so we can whip out some Facts of Life references lol

monty924 said...

Hey, Meb. I missed you come in there.

meb said...

Well... I'm in trouble already. I wrote my pool pick 'has an accident'.. of course I meant 'accent'... And no, Ihaven't been drinking yet monty. LOL

They all look so clean and fresh don't they.

Petals said...

~*~*~*~* SPLASH ~*~*~*~*~*~

I have Russell in the pool, cool!
Still love Jonathan, and Malcolm is cute, too.

Rochelle said...

woo hooooooo!
So excited!
Kowabunga

monty924 said...

Yay, Petals is here. I know you have something good to drink ;-)

monty924 said...

Petals, Malcolm was my prediction for your new Survivor crush.

Rochelle said...

I like the guy in the middle and the one who burned his hands...

monty924 said...

I didn't see the Outback season, but have seen that footage so many times. I can't even imagine.

Sharon S said...

Jon -- lol

SueGee said...

~~Splash~~~

Howdy everyone!! Brought some fresh strawberry Margaritas...salt or no salt?

SueGee on the Left Coast

JonMD1267 said...

Was that girl just sitting in the basket lol

JonMD1267 said...

Blood in the water with the knee pop ouch

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Hey everyone! I have sun tea and guacamole. Very Californian of me, don't you think? Let's toast to a great season and to Jackie's health! Cheers!!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I have to root for Michael. He's a fighter. I really like Russell Swan, but I've got to give Michael a big kudos for coming back.

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Meb, you just might have the cutest avatar ever!

meb said...

Sue Gee... salt, salt!!! Hey we have the same pool pick.

Hey Rochelle and Petals ... you got here.

someone already hurt.

Becky said...

RBennie, I am your pool mate. I am with you in hoping that Pete is not a dud. Jeff didn't sound too positive about him.

Petals said...

I brought a little tureen of hot chicken soup for our gracious hostess, Jackie.

And I have 2 bakery-fresh baguettes, a cheese platter, and champagne!!

monty924 said...

Cheers, Laurie!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks

monty924 said...

Champagne! Love it. I have a pitcher of orange juice I'll grab if anyone wants mimosas. Mmmm, one of my mom's favorites and mine. :)

monty924 said...

Howdie, Joe. Isn't it nice to be back to the Survivor pool?

Petals said...

Monty - LOL. You DO know me, girl. Yup, Malcolm is a morsel. mm :)
And of course I came with alcohol: My usual, Silver Bullet, and champagne - so we could celebrate the BB winner (as long as the winner has a penis)

SueGee said...

Hey Petals - save the bubbly for the second show LOL

Meb - I saw that we have the same pick. I have 3 hours to wait until I can size her up for myself, but Jackie wasn't a fan :o)

SueGee

monty924 said...

My pool chick is a pageant girl. Even Jeff Probst says I'm toast.

monty924 said...

Yes, my tribe has fire first! DRINKING

SueGee said...

Anyone here have any of the BB finalists in that pool? I had Shane but I didn't mind saying bye bye

SueGee

Petals said...

BUT, I don't like the evil Ken & Barbie plotting against my pool pick.

monty924 said...

Lol @ Petals!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All! Just wanted to check in and say 'hey'! I don't know what Jackie has but I'm a little under the weather myself (sinus).

I'm going to take it easy in this pool tonight so I can save something for BB later.

Good Luck to all your pool players! & Feel better Jackie!

monty924 said...

Not me, SueGee. My BB girl is making dream boards at the jury house.

SueGee said...

hmmm are we all trying to talk at the same time? Blogger error said try again.

I was just trying to say I watched the Jeff Probst show for the first time today and I'm not going to retire early so I can watch it more.

SueGee

monty924 said...

If Angie goes out quick, I think I'll root for Jonathan. I liked him in both of his seasons.

JonMD1267 said...

Ok we need to get rid of gimpy leg because he is already trying to get my boy booted lol

Rochelle said...

ah, there is always someone who says they had their chance let's get them out. I hate that. It's not like he won!

monty924 said...

Watch them scumbag him like Russell's tribe did on his last Survivor. Grrrr

Petals said...

I didn't get a chance to read Jax player introductions. I don't know who the pageant girl is, but that little blonde on Russell's tribe weighs about 70kbs soaking wet. She is a nasty little plotter, too! Grr

Petals said...

(don't you guys hate it in the beginning, when we can't keep the names straight...? LOL)

MMmmmm!! Great wings

Joe in NY said...

Too much game too soon IMHO. Very divisive to start plotting against your tribe mates on the first day.

JonMD1267 said...

"GIRLS, GIRLS," ala Mrs. Garrett :) I had to I'm sorry (no I'm not) lol

monty924 said...

That's her, Petals. I'm on your tribe but I'm a pageant girl. According to Jeff's assessment, I won't be around long, lol

meb said...

Sue Gee, I have Ian in BB.

I've been pretty lucky with picks. Our Abi is talking right now and showing her booty... Oh Dear... and already in an alliance... are they serious. they don't know anyone yet. Sigh!

Petals said...

How pathetic! They are all too young to recognize Blair. OMG, I am old. :( Skupin won't want to align against Blair, he was the only one that knew who she was.

Petals said...

Sue G - I have *ick* Delusionielle von Munchausen, the most accomplished "nurse" south of the Mason-Dixon line, with the MOST diseases, disorders, & delusions!

monty924 said...

I think I'll like Lisa/Blair too. Too early to tell, but I agree they are all hitting the ground running with game play.

Anonymous said...

Dang it, Google wouldn't let me in because I forgot my password....again! Dang!!!

It just let me post and now it won't. :-(


Penny

RBennie said...

I agree with you Joe. Forming alliances within the first couple of hours is foolish

monty924 said...

Hey, we aren't too old. Well, I am according to The SCOOTER Store. They're sending me junk mail and I'm not ready for it yet!

Petals said...

Ugh, Monty. You have Twig? The only advantage to keeping her is that she won't eat much.

JonMD1267 said...

OMG I want a Rascal so bad Monty!!!

meb said...

Well, I don't know any names yet, but I do know I'm on the yellow team. That helps.

Petals said...

OKay, we have our token tatted, wiseacre,rebel lesbian.

Becky said...

Meb and I have sneaky "look at the booty" Pete.

monty924 said...

JP packed on the pounds for this season. He said on the TALK today that he gained 40 pounds before going on so he wouldn't get down to losing muscle. I think he went far. Just a hunch.

Becky said...

I meant RBennie and I.

Joe in NY said...

Wow, good for her knowing Jeff Kent!

JonMD1267 said...

She needs to pull her inner Blair ASAP

Nickelpeed said...

Don't tell them who you are Lisa.

Play the game.

monty924 said...

Okay, there's our drinking words... FIRE, WATER and SHELTER.

DRINKING

Joe in NY said...

RBennie, I don't mind them forming alliances. But when those alliances are already opposing the other players, it undermines the team.

Petals said...

JonMD - you were a FoL fan?

I think it is really cool that Lisa was a fan of the show. Her being on a TV show in the 80s is incidental. I hope she goes far.

Petals said...

I do NOT like that scheming NY broad that doesn't like Lisa.

JonMD1267 said...

I loved the FOL, I loved almost any hocking show lol

JonMD1267 said...

He needs to work with Lisa.

Sharon S said...

I'm nervous for Lisa. Hope Red or Blue has to go to tribal...

Nickelpeed said...

I do not like RC. I don't agree with Michael. I think young kids today would look at it like, she's already had her fame, money, etc.

Not good for Lisa, though.

I had to reset my password....again. I'm old and forget. LOL

Penny

monty924 said...

Tell me how you like it when you get it, Jon. Maybe I'll take that FREE mobility assessment afterall, lol.

Joe in NY said...

I like the sex therapist... She's smart and involved.

Nickelpeed said...

Can't judge a book by it's cover...truly believe that. But, I think this guy is very, very rough.

Joe in NY said...

I agree Nickelpeed. Most of them also wouldn't know the show, I would think. And they probably think she made more money than she probably did back then.

Nickelpeed said...

Roxy is naive. It worries me. Yep, he's playing everyone.

JonMD1267 said...

I will Monty, it will probably be long time down the road (knock wood) but I would love to just have one to like tool around places lol

Nickelpeed said...

Well, at least he's honest.

Joe in NY said...

Gotta figure Russell's team loses the challenge as we've seen the most of them...

Sharon S said...

I'm hopin' Joe

monty924 said...

Malcolm is a hottie!!

Nickelpeed said...

Agree, Joe. Young kids today do not look at the whole picture. I know they'll think she's had her time in the sun. I hope Michael turns around and stands with her.

monty924 said...

I hear ya, Jon. :)

Looks like Mike is the only vet that isn't an immediate target for their teams. Why in the world do they want to target their experience so early?

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. Amazing Race is coming soon. I just do not have enough DVRs for this season!!

Penny

Joe in NY said...

You'd think they would have learned from Hantz's tribe. They conspired to get rid of him just for the sake of getting rid of him and then the whole tribe imploded.

It's the first frigging day. Plenty of time to get rid of anyone you want at some point. No need to try and win the game on the first day. Keep your tribe strong and together for as long as you can and see how it unfolds.

monty924 said...

Yeah, Penny. We're trading three nights of BB for one night each of Survivor and TAR. Works for me :)

meb said...

Penny... we've been looking at everything starting on the 30th of September and are totally panicked. Not ever going to watch it all.

Nickelpeed said...

Geesh, Michael. Are you accident prone???

SueGee said...

I have a cousin who is a sex therapist and is very smart, sharp and funniest person I know...

SueGee

Joe in NY said...

Turns out Mike is lucky he only passed out in the fire.

JonMD1267 said...

Do these people not think about taking a pair of flip flops with them.

monty924 said...

Can you say injury prone?

Joe in NY said...

He's cut all over and he looks at the camera and says he's not accident prone. Funniest thing so far this season.

Nickelpeed said...

LMAO! This man is an accident waiting to happen. Yes, get rid of that knife!!!!

That was a bad comment. LOL

SueGee said...

I have 85% of my DVR available LOL I always hate the new season until I get my shows scheduled

SueGee

JonMD1267 said...

NOOOOOO they keep wanting to give him dasbooooot

Nickelpeed said...

I can not stand Jeff Kent and I am not a Penner fan. Both need to go, really, IMO. Penner has not changed.

JonMD1267 said...

lol that was cool :)

Rochelle said...

That Alan Alda voice!!!

And no way the clue was right there and he figured it out!

Nickelpeed said...

So, he's going to put his hands in the rice. LOL. Got to admit, he's smart.

Sharon S said...

Are we going to get a competition or what?

Petals said...

Woohoo!!
I hope JP finds the idol, and doesn't tell ANYONE!

Petals said...

WoohooO!!!! Now Russell finds a clue, YAY!

Petals said...

Now burnt-hands (name?) needs to find his.

Sydney said...

Just as I want to call that guy with the tats a little dim, he guesses Russel has the idol

Rochelle said...

Yes, JP, are you smart enough to NOT tell anyone? I hope so. I THINK So.

monty924 said...

Mike, Petals. Sharon S, I was thinking the same thing. No challenge and we are almost an hour in.

Nickelpeed said...

Sue, I have so many shows I want to tape. Monday's will be the worse. I have 2 DVRs, but they are still not enough. This is coming from the person who used to tape everything on a VCR and has piles of tapes that have never been watched. UGH!

SueGee said...

90 minute show - so they are going to save the challenge and Tribal for the end

SueGee

Sharon S said...

finally

monty924 said...

It's about time!

Rochelle said...

Here's your challenge Mont!


Nickelpeed said...

Good - FINALLY!!!

Who do you think will do well?

Nickelpeed said...

Cool Immunity Idol!

Sydney said...

I agree Joe - not accident prone???

Rochelle said...

oh not good Russell....

Sharon S said...

I think Russel is going home...

Joe in NY said...

I remember now why I never liked Russell very much. He's annoying and not in a fun way

SueGee said...

Penny, I still have some VCR tapes and a combo VCR/DVD player that's not even hooked up to anything anymore! My DVR is wonderful..and I can program it from my computer (or smart phone if I knew how)

SueGee

Becky said...

Russell is p.oing a lot of people. He is too condesending and pushy.

monty924 said...

Go BLUE

meb said...

come on Yellow!

Nickelpeed said...

Mine, too, SueGee. I just don't have enough. LOL


I think Russell's team might lose

meb said...

Russel said he's physical... He can hardly run.

Joe in NY said...

How the heck did they catch them?

Becky said...

Why did they send a girl to row?

Nickelpeed said...

Well, it looks like Russell might go home tonight. :::sigh:::

Joe in NY said...

The joke with Russell is he pretty much did everything he said he wasn't going to do.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Lisa!!!!

JonMD1267 said...

Come on Lisa !!!

monty924 said...

Ut oh, my girl might go home first night.

Joe in NY said...

Russell didn't want to be the leader. Instead he opted to be a bad leader.

monty924 said...

Good thing they already have fire

Becky said...

Russell is in deep doggy do.

JonMD1267 said...

Not for one of you lol

Nickelpeed said...

DANG!!!!!! Well, I think Russell is gone.



Petals said...

Yay, Lisa stays, and so does JP.
Russell is my pool guy. I guess if he goes, I will cheer for Lisa & JP (wish they were on the same team).\

Monty - I am not crushing as much on Malcolm anymore. He's no Ozzy. LOL

Sharon S said...

Take a drink if you think this is the end of the road for Russell...

meb said...

Joe you are so right. You'd think Russel would know better!

I'm sorry Lisa didn't come in first. She would have gain some points with her tribe.

Oh well, at least they got flint. And no tribal counsel.

monty924 said...

Well, they are making it look like Russell is gone, so I'm saying... NOT! I say my pool chick is

monty924 said...

Definitely not a waterdog, Petals :)

Ninboh said...

I'm eagerly waiting for big brother and I'm bored.

meb said...

DRINKING! Sharon S.

Petals said...

Naughty nurse???? big @@

(Jackie - how are you feeling?)

RBennie said...

Oh well looks like Russell is toast.

meb said...

You're probably right monty... but I'm already not impressed with Russell. Don't like that I know better than you attitude. He shushed that girl who was trying to tell him she didn't do well at puzzels. Not smart.

monty924 said...

I took a drink and then grabbed the bucket @@

Nickelpeed said...

I hope he's not gone. I should know better by now...shouldn't I? Heehee

monty924 said...

I'm not liking Russell either for this episode, but the edit is too obvious.

Jackie said...

Petals - Still under the weather, but I plan on going to work in the morning. I've already missed two workdays and I don't want to waste my sick pay being sick! Plus, it's not contagious. Well, maybe if I bite someone ...

meb said...

Ninboh... do you watch Survivor normally? It certainly isn't boring IMHO. But tonight's BB finale is going to be a lot of excitement.. and fun. I'm anxious for it to get here too. Not much longer!

monty924 said...

Glad I don't have a 3D TV right now. Ewww

Petals said...

Monty - your Q-tip chick is safe. I think they all dislike Russell :(

JonMD1267 said...

He has reached the speed of stupid with saying that oh my gosh.

Nickelpeed said...

COOL! I love snakes. Come on Russell, be careful what you say. OMG! Is Zane going? It's a trick, I know it's a trick.

Becky said...

I don't care for Shane either.

Rochelle said...

I agree Ruth

Petals said...

Zaine is volunteering to go home???? WTF?

meb said...

Zane better do some repair to his chess move or he'll really be going home.

Sharon S said...

I can't believe Zane's plan is going to work. What a risky move!

monty924 said...

Get that idol Russell :)

Ninboh said...

@ Meb, I've never watched survivor. Chances are I would probably like it since I am a BB fan. Though outdoorsy things aren't my thing. Is there as much game involved?

Sydney said...

oh yeah.. the idol. I was away for a sec, does Russel have it?

Nickelpeed said...

He is so dang arrogant. I'm hoping it's not Russell. I'm hoping they pull a good one and vote him out, just to call his bluff.

Nickelpeed said...

No, Sydney

Sharon S said...

At least he recognizes his mistake

monty924 said...

Bet it's Zane

JonMD1267 said...

Even he thought that was strategy to stay, why would he keep up the ruse of it when he is talking one on one with people and saying the same thing.

Becky said...

At least Russell sees ther error of his way. Send Shane home, please.

Sydney said...

Ninboh, you MUST be joking! There is major game in Survivor = a very different animal than BB. Hope you join us this season. We have fun here.

monty924 said...

Ninboh, there is a ton of game in Survivor.

Sydney said...

Thanks Nickelpeed. :)

Nickelpeed said...

This is so nail biting. I just do not want Russell to go home. But, despite Zane trying to pull the wool over everyone's eyes, I think they'll vote Russell.

JonMD1267 said...

I think Russell is a goner

meb said...

Jon.. I agree... he really wasn't too smart.

Ninboh... stick with us... it gets better... tonight was more of an introduction... later they do two comps... one is for reward and one for idol. There is definitely game play... not necessarily like BB, but it's brutal sometimes.

Ninboh said...

Okay you guys have me convinced. I'll watch this episode online. (i'm pretty bored right now b/c I'm presently unemployed). Hopefully, I'll get a job soon.

Becky said...

And he is big enough to admit his mistake.

Rochelle said...

what is he saying that for? It HAS to be a trick...

JonMD1267 said...

I hate saying this but I think they are to young and going to vote him out.

Nickelpeed said...

Russell's gone....I can see it.

Nickelpeed said...

The snake is appropriate for this.
:-(

Nickelpeed said...

Ugh. That smirk is terrible. But, he's safe

Nickelpeed said...

WOOOOOHOOOOO. Called your bluff!!!!

JonMD1267 said...

SNAP lol

Rochelle said...

Bit Zane in the ass. WHAT WAS HE THINKING????

monty924 said...

LOL CYA Zane

Sharon S said...

that stinks....
