Survivor: Philippines - October 24 Episode Blog Party


Survivor fans ready? The show is about to start here on the East Coast. Nope, no World Series watching for me! It's Survivor, then Criminal Minds. Perfect in my book. 

From the promos, it sounds like Penner and Skupin might be in a bit of trouble tonight. Hopefully that keeps any target off my new favorite player Denise. I'm not all that keen on Penner back for a third time. Mike Skupin, on the other hand, was so long ago in his one previous season and his injuries (the burns) were horrifying. He definitely deserves a shot this season.

As the show airs here, I'll update this entry with the major news. But, as always, the real action is in the comments area. Hopefully the ballgame won't steal many of our party people!

Almost right into the reward challenge -- pushing a large wicker ball through a goal while the other tribe tries to stop you. Reward is a visit to a dry hut with sandwiches, soup and more. Said wicker ball is huge and the field is mud. It's kind of like mud wrestling! This is done with teams of three. With the first group, they're stalemating. They have to score three and it's well over an hour stuck with the first group.

It's over. In a deal worked out, Kalabaw gives all their rice to Tandang and wins reward. Now, Skupin had eaten most of Tandang's rice and they do need it. But Artis (for one) doesn't seem pleased with the deal at all.

Aw, they got their letters from home at the hut. But they're soon hungry once again.

Immunity challenge time -- launching balls out to field, others catch. Each catch worth a point, five points is the winning tribe. Abi is sitting out AGAIN.

Tandang wins immunity with newbie on the tribe Malcolm being their hero.

Jeff wants to go for Penner. The other alternative is Katie. Thankfully, although Denise is new in the tribe, they're liking her.

Lots of blindside talk at the Tribal Council. The tally -- Katie, Penner, Katie, Katie. Bye-bye, Katie. Overall, a wiser decision than Jonathan. After all, he can do quasi-well in challenges. She's pretty much worthless. Then comes Carter in that tribe -- the kid seems stoned all the time and I know he can't be.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie, Laurie, Montie, and Sharon!!!

Any one hear how Ptetal's doing?

Penny

Nickelpeed said...

ooops, Petals.

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh. Mike is eating everything??? Wow.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Monty, Laurie, and anyone else who has/will arrive.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All!

Monty BBQ & Slaw...YUM!!

Mud Wrestling @@

monty924 said...

Howdie to Laurie, Penny, Sharon S and Becky.

I love these mud battles :)

monty924 said...

Hey there Ed... great minds think alike ;)

Becky said...

This gives new meaning to mud wrestling.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. What a mess. LOL

monty924 said...

This is sweet... bargaining for food. Love it!

monty924 said...

Good for you Artis.

monty924 said...

Survivor first?

Nickelpeed said...

Not a good decision, IMO

Ed in Ohio said...

I don't like ties!! :(

Monty^5

Nickelpeed said...

Mike might have just written his name on his own paper at TC if they lose the IC.

Becky said...

Which team is almost out of Rice?

Ed in Ohio said...

I'm surprised Mike didn't get hurt!

monty924 said...

Maybe he did, Ed. With all that mud on his face, we just didn't see the blood.

Nickelpeed said...

The other team is going to be furious when they find out there were letters from home. Not good at all.

monty924 said...

Artis is right

Nickelpeed said...

I do not blame Artis for being mad. I like this man.

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Heading home. Hope to see you when I get there!

monty924 said...

Have to agree with her... she's right too

Becky said...

Get rid of the bimbo! Either her or Abbie.

Ed in Ohio said...

Double breasted jacket? Where did that come from??

monty924 said...

Lol, Becky. I agree... I actually like the bimbo more than Abi but that isn't saying much. I'm rooting for Lisa :))

Petals said...

hey guys. late. Had to go get more meds.

Have no voice, I sound throatier than Demi Moore.

Becky said...

What has Abie contributed to the tribe. This is the first time that she didn't sit on the bench.

I do agree with Artis, they shouldn't have done it.

Mike will be in trouble if they don't win.

Becky said...

Hey, Petals. Are you any better?

monty924 said...

Hey Petals! Aww, hope the meds kick in and you feel better soon. I'm dodging sick people at work like they have the plague.

Petals said...

Eh. I took a Z-pack, and $70 of narcotic cough syrup. Still feel like I"m breathing under water. But better, thank you.

Joe in NY said...

Hi gang

monty924 said...

JP the provider and they sit around putting him down for it.

Ed in Ohio said...

Now neither tribe likes the deal.

Feel better Petals!

Petals said...

That, and it was 83 today but will be 60 tomorrow. Our weather is topsy-turvy.

monty924 said...

This gal reminds me of Kristen from BB12. She looks like her.

Becky said...

Penner ain't no Ozzy. Yes, bad grammar was intentional.

Petals said...

thanks guys. One week til Halloween - I have to get 100% before then.

GO JP!

monty924 said...

Exactly, Ed. That's why they should have continued the battle. Artis was right.

Petals said...

Becky - LOL, there is no other Ozzy (*sigh*)

Petals said...

Abby is DEAD weight!

monty924 said...

omg, how did we know that would happen. But on the other hand, Mike can't injure himself in this one.

Ed in Ohio said...

Jeff Kent should be good at this

Petals said...

Hey Joe! I miss you - no WWF :(

Petals said...

Dang, Jeff is slamming Katie again. Do you guys think he is sweet on her, and that is why he is extra-hard on her?

Nickelpeed said...

Glad you are feeling a little better, Petals.

Sharon S said...

There goes Jeff calling out Katie as inept again....

Nickelpeed said...

YES!!!

Petals said...

WTG Malcolm.

Sharon S said...

Go Lisa and Malcolm!

Ed in Ohio said...

Malcolm's the Man!

Katie's such a Girl!!

Becky said...

Do you think they will vote out Penner?

monty924 said...

Katie... that is her name. The one I think looks like Kristen.

YAY, Tandang means my peeps aren't going home. Hope it isn't Denise. I don't see her being on anyone's radar yet, so she's probably safe.

Becky said...

I hope Denise is safe. I am pulling for her. She is one tough litte bird. If she was a hen she would have to be stewed.

Ed in Ohio said...

It seems lke Jeff Probst either likes or doesn't like Katie ???...but she is kinda cute!

Petals said...

Ed - she is his type. Remember that last contestant he hooked-up with? She is the SAME type.

Sharon S said...

I hope they'll vote out Penner, but I'm afraid it will be Katie instead (not that she probably doesn't deserve to go, but I'm tired of Penner).

Ed in Ohio said...

I'm out of the pool so I'm rooting for Malcolm & Denise.

Their original tribe was the pits!!

Nickelpeed said...

Good old Jeff, same now as he always was.

Nickelpeed said...

What do they have against Katie, what did she do? Or not do?

Sharon S said...

"The Penner Punch"

Nickelpeed said...

LMAO!!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Yeah Monty Probst was dating a contestant named Julie I think. Seems to go for that type.

Petals said...

yup, Ed. And she was nearly identical to this Katie chick. Brunette, blue eyes, pretty-girl-next-door.

monty924 said...

You know from that comment there that Kent will vote out Katie. JP has an idol and that will help him more than Katie with nothing to offer him.

Becky said...

Penny, Katie hasn't contributed much to the tribe -- except loyalty.

Ed in Ohio said...

Why does Jeff have to bring up "blindsides" seems like he's giving a warning?

monty924 said...

Jeff Kent's old team is up 1-0 in the World Series right now. GO DETROIT :))

monty924 said...

I'm rooting for Detroit, but Kent played for SF.

Becky said...

I hope it is Katie that goes.

Nickelpeed said...

Probably Katie

monty924 said...

Confidence there

Sharon S said...

:(

Petals said...

Buh Bye Katie. Don't worry - you won. You won Jeff (probably)

Ed in Ohio said...

Well there went the 'eye candy' :((

Nickelpeed said...

Yep.

Becky, I love your mom's and Little Bits pictures!!!

monty924 said...

What are they down to now? The merge has to be coming...

Sharon S said...

11 left I think?

Nickelpeed said...

Well, see everyone Sunday; and see those who don't watch Amazing Race, Wednesday!!!

Thank you, Jackie. Appreciate it!!!

Becky said...

Thank you, Penny.

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty I think it's 4 vs 7 now

Sharon S said...

Night all -- see you Sunday!

monty924 said...

LOL @ Ed. Did you see the tweet that Malcolm posted the night Angie was voted off? Something like, 'to straight men everywhere, I'm sorry'. Seems like you men like your eye candy. lol

Nickelpeed said...

What's the twist???

SueGee said...

Better late than never!!

Go Giants :o)

SueGee on the Left Coast

Jackie said...

Jeff just got married not even a year ago. I doubt he's really interested in Katie.

monty924 said...

Merge next week. I love it when the merge comes. Entire new game. GO LISA

Becky said...

What did they say about having to swim?

Ed in Ohio said...

Well I gotta' say Monty it does make the show a little more interesting. I knew I liked Malcolm...way to go Bro!

monty924 said...

Hey, SueGee. Don't take my Detroit vs. SF against me. :))

Have to go. Goodnight folks and thanks Jackie. See you fine folks next week.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, everybody!

Ed in Ohio said...

I thought Jeff was divorced. Hadn't realized he re-married.

Nite All! Have a good one! Feel better Petals!
& Thanks Jackie!!

Becky said...

I like Malcom too. Love he is teaming up with Lisa. If they merge then Denise will join them.

Nickelpeed said...

Night Jackie and everyone

Jackie said...

He married last December. And, not to Julia Berry from the show.

Becky said...

Thank you, Jackie. See all of you Sunday.
