Survivor: Philippines - October 10 Episode Blog Party


Survivor fans ready? I'm kind of wondering how the alpha male bonding between Jeff Kent and Penner is going to go. I can't really see them together in the long run like Richard Hatch and Rudy, can you?

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. However, as always, the real action is in the comments. Come join in, the pool is fine!

Espionage! Pete set up RC by putting the clue to the idol sticking out of her bag. Chaos ensues. Jeff, Penner and Carter formed an alliance on their tribe. The women know something's up.

Immunity challenge time! Carrying pots of rice on bamboo through an obstacle course, then smashing all six pots. First tribe finishing gets steak and spices. Second gets vegetables, salt and pepper and a pot. Both of the full tribes sit out their women. So it's all men against Malcolm, Denise and Russell.

Tandang won 1st place. Kalabaw won second. Sigh. Matsing loses once again despite a valiant effort. Kalabaw decided to trade their food for a tarp. 

Tribal Council time. No backstabbing this time. Jeff tried to pit them against each other but the worst they could say about Denise is that she's fantastic. 

The tally: Russell, Malcolm, Russell.

He was my pool pick, but that's fine with me. I think Denise is fantastic!

Huh. Russell thinks he was blindsided when he was the weakest link in almost all the challenges. @@

I've got wine and a hot tub. Too cold for swimming tonight!

Hey Jackie and all....

monty924 said...

Oh, I forgot...

GO LISA!!

Sharon S said...

skHiyas....

I actually made it tonight. Not sure how long I'll stay awake, so I'm going stay away from the water so I don't drown!

Sharon S said...

oops...somehow part of my captcha entered my post. Sorry!

Jackie said...

Sorry ... turned off the captcha a bit late tonight! It's off now.

lynn1 said...

Hi everyone. Hope you are feeling better Jackie

monty924 said...

Did anyone else see Malcolm's tweet last week? He tweeted: To all straight men everywhere: I'm sorry

LOL

monty924 said...

I'm happy he voted Angie off the island. I get to root for someone else now. Hey Lynn and Sharon.

lynn1 said...

I still say Denise looks like David Bowie

Nickelpeed said...

I'm heeeerrrrrreeee! How's everyone doing?

That camp life sucks!

Petals said...

~*~ splish ~*~ into hot tub

Hey Monty, Hey Ms J &
everyone!

Sharon S said...

Sometimes I can't like Russell, and other times I can't remember why I don't like Russell.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi everybody!

Monty a glass of wine & a hot tub sounds pretty good on a cool October night.

Petals said...

Oh, her name was Angie? HAHA - I just refer to her as "cookies"

Petals said...

I have a bottle of my fave port, which I LOVE on Autumn evenings - every feel free - (no cool snifters, tho. I stole a sleeve of dental rinse cups from my office)

monty924 said...

Hey Penny, Petals and Ed. LOL @ Petals. Have you seen the banner at Joker's. Angie is Cookie Monster :))

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and pool buddies.

monty924 said...

I wonder how Mike is going to survive the season with all of his injuries.

Nickelpeed said...

Please Mike, do not fall in to the fire!!!

Penny

Becky said...

I have Pete in the pool. Not impressed.

Petals said...

I really don't like that RC chick.

Go Lisa & JP

Petals said...

I have Russel - VERY unimpressed

Sharon S said...

RC is my pool pick, but I'm secretly (well, not so secretly) rooting for Lisa.

Petals said...

I dunno Becky - Pete is pretty smart...shifty, rather.

Nickelpeed said...

Uhmmmm, cute and brains...

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks.

Sorry, I've been sitting here and forgot to say "hello"!

Becky said...

Petals, he is Sneaky Pete.

Petals said...

Me too SharonS, rooting for Lisa! And my man JP (love him AND his Alda-voce

Petals said...

Hey gruesome-picture-man! *ahem*

Nickelpeed said...

That's Jeff. Plays this game the same way he played baseball - it was always about him. Penner and he make a good couple.

monty924 said...

I don't know. I think I like RC more than Abi. They both give me the feeling that they will provide good times here at the pool, lol.

Sharon S said...

Where'd this blond kid come from that JP is talking to?

Sydney said...

Late SPLASH! Hi kids!

Petals said...

Monty, haven't visited Jokers since BB ended. Need to go there, tho. "Cookies". Really? When that happened, my jaw dropped along with Jeff's.

monty924 said...

Hey Joe. You snuck in there.

Nickelpeed said...

The kid is a girl. LOL

Petals said...

Penny - I don't follow baseball very much - which team was he?

Joe in NY said...

We're seeing an awful lot of Penner's tribe tonight. Think they are heading for tribal?

Sharon S said...

The one out at the boat with him and the baseball guy?

Petals said...

OMG, I thought JP was talking to a blonde boy too! It is the tough chick, that has that sculpted short hairdo? OMG.

Sharon S said...

I think the sculpted chick was talking to the other girls...

monty924 said...

H'lo Sydney

Joe in NY said...

Mostly the Giants, I think.

Sydney said...

Hot tub is getting to me. Have to stand up during the commercials...

You know I still am not even sure who the person is who I have. But i WILL be looking for the David Bowie person, lol

I brought a huge bowl of malted milk balls... blast from the past. Anyone want some?

Ed in Ohio said...

Petals Jeff Kent played for quite a few teams;

Toronto Blue Jays
New York Mets
Cleveland Indians
San Francisco Giants
Houston Astros
Los Angeles Dodgers

monty924 said...

Petals, Jeff Kent was with a lot of teams, but most known for his years with the SF Giants.

monty924 said...

They could totally throw it and get rid of Russell. Of course, they would have to hope for a tribe switch up.

It's about time Russell started looking for it, ya think?

Petals said...

OK, thanks guys (re: baseball)

Ed in Ohio said...

And Jeff Kent had somewhat of a reputation for not getting along with some of his team mates.

monty924 said...

This is too funny. They're looking for the idol that he's been to dumb to look for.

Nickelpeed said...

Petals - Jeff Kent played on a lot of teams. One team was the Giants; and he's the all time leader of home runs as a second baseman. He wasn't really liked by his team mates, that's why he was traded so often. Very determined and driven guy. Nothing wrong with that, but he was never a team player.

Joe in NY said...

That tribe deserves to be decimated. They've been losing every frigging comp and they spend all their free time plotting against each other. WTF? There's THREE of you left...try and hang together.

Petals said...

aww - I didnt want to see lil caterpillar die...

monty924 said...

In baseball circles, he's known as a jerk. Just sayin' :)

monty924 said...

Cat fight! YES

Petals said...

I agree, Joe. They're stooges.

Nickelpeed said...

Ooops, I just realized others answered the question about Jeff Kent. LOL. He was with QUITE a few teams. He was good, but never got a long with people.

monty924 said...

Go Lisa

Petals said...

Grr - now she turns to Lisa (while they've been treating her like roadkill thus far) Lisa is too nice.

Nickelpeed said...

Smart decision, Lisa. Let them cat fight it out. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Well that was a new high (low?) in Survivor wildlife photography. LOL

Sharon S said...

Joe, I don't think they'd be plotting against each other so much if Russell wasn't Russell.

lynn1 said...

I am no fan of RC but I think Abi maybe a little bit psycho

monty924 said...

Sharon S, I agree.

monty924 said...

Agree with Lynn, too :)) I get an ick feeling with Abi. Drama, drama, drama

Nickelpeed said...

Oooooh, THAT is beautiful

Sydney said...

OK, I've got Carter... hadta go back and look it up.

Sydney said...

I agree with Lynn too

Joe in NY said...

Sharon, they've been plotting against each other the whole time...and not just against Russell.

But even if it is true about Russell. So what? There's only 3 of you left, you have to try and win something as a team.

Petals said...

tritto re Abi: I think she has that "batty Brazilian" thing going.

(although, my lovely Janelle {BB queen} said she met her in LA, and liked her a lot)

Nickelpeed said...

Come on LISA!!! GO, GO, goooooooo

monty924 said...

Come on Matsing!! You can do this.

Petals said...

ewww... that person is SOOOO butch!

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, I think Abi is muy loco

Sydney said...

Petals - I bet Janelle didn't have cause to see this side of her! eek

Joe in NY said...

Ironically, it is Russell who is the weak link not the woman on that tribe

Petals said...

I don't know her name: gonna call her Dennis the Menace

meb said...

Man! Late again! But I'm here and trying to catch up.

Sydney.. I love malt balls... Throw some over here please.

Wine is good Monty...

Sharon S said...

Carter = blond kid

Nickelpeed said...

I would really like to see Matsing do better.

Petals said...

wow - go Malcolm!

Joe in NY said...

Sure, we never saw this blond guy and the only thing we'll know about him is that he's a klutz

Sydney said...

go denise!

Petals said...

Matsing leading??? Am I colorblind or is this true?

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Denise, you can do this!!!!! Come on

Sydney said...

THat blonde klutz is my Carter! no wonder I had no idea where he came was all this time

Sydney said...

boy is FAST

Sydney said...

smashing looks pretty easy

Nickelpeed said...

Go Malcom, come on guys!!! Don't want them to lose this time.

Petals said...

Sydney - I'm sure you're right.

Joe in NY said...

AWESOME CAMERA WORK!!!

Sydney said...

AMAZING

Nickelpeed said...

Son of a gun!

Sharon S said...

Wow....so close for Malcolm. Sad.

monty924 said...

Geesh!!! Goodbye Russell!

Petals said...

wow! Lisa & JP are safe! Time for Russell to say buh bye!

Sydney said...

OH SHUT UP

Joe in NY said...

How come Russell always has energy left for tantrums but nothing for competitions...

Joe in NY said...

Love that, he just called Jeff "Lord"

Nickelpeed said...

Russell is gone.

Ed in Ohio said...

What a team!! Now who goes??

monty924 said...

Russell is a joke!

Petals said...

Well, Russell - you are excellent. Excellent at losing challenges.

Nickelpeed said...

I really feel badly for Matsing. Really do.

Joe in NY said...

I'd love to know what Russell thinks of himself watching this...

I mean he totally crawled at the end of the comp and just lay there the whole time Malcolm was competing. Then he starts smashing crap.

BRING THE PASSION TO THE COMP, ASS!

Petals said...

OMGosh, Dennis the Menace is ... scary (or maybe it was just the mud that caused her to walk like Popeye)

Sharon S said...

Petals said...
Well, Russell - you are excellent. Excellent at losing challenges.

LOL!

Joe in NY said...

I don't feel badly for Matsing. They did it to themselves. They fought each other the whole time. They kept Russell for no apparent reason. Roxy was a good elimination. The other 2? There was no reason to keep Russell. He is physically weak despite his physique and he is disruptive to morale.

Nickelpeed said...

I would think, next week, they absorb the two left in Matsing in to the other tribes. TPTB will not keep the challenges to two people. I can't see them doing that.

Sydney said...

Touche Joe in NY

Meb - Malt balls -How long since you had them? I am now addicted after getting a box about 4 months ago

Joe in NY said...

Denise was balancing carefully, that's why her arms were out. I love her. She may be my favorite.

Jackie said...

Denise is way tougher than Russell. I'm hoping she lasts a good long time. Even though Russell is my pool pick, I'm cheering on Denise!

Ed in Ohio said...

I agree Nicklespeed the two who are left will probably be on the other two tribes.

Sydney said...

i have to laugh that he's so oblivious to say sincerely, it could be me!

Jackie said...

Syd -- I just bought a box of malted milk balls last week on a whim! Heavenly goodness.

Joe in NY said...

the two "athletes"? Really, Russell? Da Nile is not just a river in Egypt...

He has sucked at every comp since day one...how can he not know that?

Sydney said...

i love denise

Nickelpeed said...

They were fighting each other from the beginning. They should have followed their gut feeling about who to vote off. I just do not get Russell. He's a huge guy and Denise is little, but she carried her weight in the challenge. If they Malcolm votes Denise off, he deserves everything he gets. I was rooting for Russell, but he's been a disappointment.. For a big guy, he IS the weakest link. :-(

Ed in Ohio said...

Russell's all talk!

Joe in NY said...

Denise is definitely tres cool...

monty924 said...

This music is comical. Who's going tonight?

Petals said...

I was thinking the same thing, Monty - that music!

Ed in Ohio said...

They should all vote for each other and make it a 3 way tie!

Nickelpeed said...

But Russell...you put it on everyone else to do the job...EVERY time!!!

Petals said...

Each one thinks they are the "swing vote"! It will be one vote each, then decided by fire-starting?

Nickelpeed said...

I think Russell will go.

Joe in NY said...

Russell never made it to the merge the first time. His social game sucks...I can't believe he thinks he's great at that also.

We need to hook up he and Phillipe in a battle of the crazies out there...

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, Russell, you voted for MALCOLM? How the hell are you going to win anything without him?

monty924 said...

Most light and FUN tribal ever :))

Sydney said...

WHut whut???

Nickelpeed said...

I liked Russell better the first time around. Not now. He's a nice guy, but very weak.

Sydney said...

HOORAYYYYYYYYY!!!

Sharon S said...

Russell really thought he had a chance?

Joe in NY said...

Seriously, you couldn't see that coming Russell?

monty924 said...

Bye bye Russell. Taken out the first time with a Medivac and this time by just being a really weak player.

Petals said...

Joe - right on! How funny would they be?

Welp, I'm outta da'pool! S'ok !

Joe in NY said...

I never really liked Russell. He's always been a blowhard. But last time it at least seemed like he was helping the tribe. Somehow, he was totally useless this time.

Ed in Ohio said...

He thought Malcolm was too big of a threat? LOL!!!!

See Ya!!

Becky said...

I will catch you guys later. Have a great night. LYM

Nickelpeed said...

I know he wanted to redeem himself, but he didn't. He was a completely different person this time around. Darn. However, I think Denise an Malcolm will be stronger now. I still think they'll be absorbed in to the other two groups.

monty924 said...

I wonder how that tie would have been decided? They could have done the do over vote, but if they're all still tied would it have been rocks or fire? Hmmm... I'd like to know what Jeff would answer to that.

Nickelpeed said...

See some of you Sunday; and the rest next Wednesday.

Thank you, Jackie. Have a great weekend!!!

Yikes,who leaves next week???

monty924 said...

What??? another medical evac?

Nickelpeed said...

Ooops, I meant, have a great week everyone!!!

Anonymous said...

Why did I think that Russel had the immunity idol?

Sydney said...

disbelief till the end Russell? Thank you everyone. I'm leaving the rest of the milk balls for you Jax.

Anonymous said...

Who do you think will be evaced?????

monty924 said...

On a good note... Petals and Jackie can now root for JP and Denise :)

Nite all. See you late on Sunday!

Jackie said...

I think maybe Jeff Kent with his knee? I can't think of anyone else on that tribe either really sick or hurt.

lynn1 said...

later folks

Jackie said...

I'm not a huge Penner fan, Monty. But Petals is!

Thanks for coming by, folks!

meb said...

Well my grandson came down to talk and I missed the whole thing. Still eating those malt balls... send some more sydney if you haven't left already. I'll enjoy them as I continue to watch the show. Time for Russell to go so not sad about that.

His sad story about being picked on didn't work.

Petals said...

I'll cheer for JP, absolutely! WHoo!

Anonymous said...

1 - kudos to Denise for being an adult. LOVED her comment that if she were the one voted out, she'd still think Malcolm and Russell were great guys and she'd just chalk it up to being outplayed.

B - can you be blindsided when there are only 3 of you on your tribe? As much as I'd HOPE it wouldn't be me, I wouldn't be surprised if it were. @@

Paula Bell said...

OK so I missed the party and fortunately recorded the show. I have one serious question and I think Jackie, I must give it to you....
In the immunity challenges, when a team has an extra member they choose one to set out. But, doesn't Jeff always say they cannot have set out the challenge before?

Therefore, the girls would have outnumbered the men playing. Hopefully I am explaining this right way, so it makes sense.

monty924 said...

Hehe, my last post didn't make sense. I meant Petals can root for JP and Jackie for Denise.

I bet they split Malcolm and Denise up this week. I hope Denise goes to the red tribe. They already want a female alliance, so she should be safe for a while there. Hopefully a merge will happen soon.

Jackie said...

It's true that they can't sit out consecutive challenges ... or it used to be. Perhaps with the three teams and one team down so low, it's changed. Jeff didn't mention the rule this time. I don't really know.

Anonymous said...

Missed the show with you guys as was watching Rupert in a debate for office in Indiana. Not sure what I think about his chances.

Kay Star said...

Jackie, just wanted to get your comment on all of these competitive reality shows getting rid of the people of color right off the bat. Shows such as Project Runway, The Glass House, and now Survivor: Phillippines. I just watched the baseball player get rid of Dawson, and why? What did she do to make them (or the head man Jeff) decide to get rid of her? The other girl was the one who blew their chances of winning. I am so frustrated by this that I discontinue watching the shows. In next week's show, it looks like Artis is aware of what went on this week, and he is ready for Jeff Kent (besides the baseball player plays dirty-it looks like he has a mean, racist theme going on - how shameful!) I'm hoping that Artis will help him to get his head on straight. That's the only reason that I'm watching next week. Your comments, please!
