Survivor: Philippines - 12/12/12 Episode Blog Party

Photobucket


I hear there's a big concert going on somewhere, so I don't know how busy our little party will be here. Ah, who am I kidding? I'm recording the concert and, had I been able to get tickets, I would have abandoned you for the evening! But, as I'm not a wealthy person with disposable income to spend frivolously on rock concerts with outrageous ticket prices ... no way could I go. But I'll have fun here nonetheless.

As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major events. However, as always, the real fun will be in the comments. Come join us!

They've figured out that Abi really doesn't have an idol.

Rewards have them racing up and over a slide into the ocean, retrieving bags of rings, then tossing them for the win. Winner will choose two people to join them for a pizza party on a whale shark watching cruise. Skupin wins! He decides to take Malcolm (because he chose Skupin's son last week) and Lisa. Abi is all upset that she wasn't chosen. @@

Malcolm makes a final deal with Lisa and Skupin. But Lisa may have other thoughts.

Uh-oh. Denise has fang marks on her neck and a possible allergic reaction.

Immunity Challenge time! They have to use planks to cross a rope bridge, collecting pieces of a maze along the way, then assemble the maze. Malcolm wins Immunity!

Denise, although she thinks they'll vote out Abi, asked Malcolm for his hidden idol. No go. Lisa is seriously pushing for a Denise vote. It's Tribal Council time! Abi's mouth is doing its thing.

The tally -- Denise, Abi, Abi, ABI. YES! Abi is history!

Hey Jackie!!

Homemade spinach and artichoke dip with pita chips and plenty of wine over at the bar.

Diving in ~~~~SPLASH~~~~

Jackie said...

Dang, it was hard to break away from Born to Run with Springsteen and Bon Jovi ... but here I am!

Sharon S said...

Hi there -- so hoping to see the backside of Abi tonight.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Monty, Jackie!

Monty congrats on your TAR pool win. I had those much beloved twins@@!!

Jackie is that concert televised or just live?

monty924 said...

Taping the concert and watching Survivor live.

Ed in Ohio said...

Sharon Abi is a 'backside'!

Jackie said...

I'd like her gone, too. I don't care if she's a sure bet for someone sitting next to her to win. I'd prefer Malcolm to stay over her.

monty924 said...

Hey Saron and Ed. Sharon and I both get bragging rights on TAR. My first ever pool win.... YAY

Jackie said...

The concert is on a gazillion stations including the Food Network ... but not MTV. Weird.

Ed in Ohio said...

Congrats Sharon!

monty924 said...

Oh, I want Abi's nine lives up tonight! I won't even mind missing the drinking game on Sunday night!!!

Jackie said...

I noticed they were on a delay on the PBS station here, just starting as Survivor started. I had been watching for a half-hour already.

monty924 said...

If tonight is her night to go, we may or may not get some fireworks and drinking out of her :)))

Sharon S said...

Thanks Ed! And, you are right about the backside reference, I used it wrong - lol!

Dusty said...

I really hope that Abi goes home too!

Who do you guys want to win the title "Survivor" ?

Woo hoo, I get bragging rights that my guys won on TAR!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Here we go... it's all about Abi!

monty924 said...

Abi's scheming and I'm DRINKING

Ed in Ohio said...

Congrats on your TAR win Dusty!

monty924 said...

Lisa, there isn't much time left for big moves. Just sayin'

monty924 said...

Hey Dusty..

Raising a toast to my TAR winners here tonight. Here's to Dusty, Sharm and Me, lol

CHEERS

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. Time caught up with me.

Ed in Ohio said...

Abi's gonna' try to get in Lisa's head

monty924 said...

Love the slides

monty924 said...

Go Skupin

monty924 said...

Hi Becky. Happy you made it here tonight.

Dusty said...

CHEERS, Monty & Sharm!!!!

It's not often that I get bragging rights!!!

Rochelle said...

Late to the par-tay! Hello all!

Ed in Ohio said...

Abi gets no Luv!

Becky said...

That is rough this close to the end.

Sharon S said...

Poor Denise having to hang out with Abi while the others are relaxing.

monty924 said...

Smart, but he didn't know Abi was in her ear. I would have taken Denise because she didn't get the loved one's reward.

Becky said...

Jackie, did you get my email today?

Rochelle said...

Congrats Dusty. I hardly watched this year!

monty924 said...

Oops, I typed Sharm.

Should have been Sharon :::blushing:::

Jackie said...

Becky ... if you sent it to the AOL address, I haven't read that today (yet).

monty924 said...

Hey Rochelle

monty924 said...

We might get some drinking in with Denise and Abi???

Sharon S said...

Abi really thought she was going to get picked to go?

Jackie said...

Becky -- I just looked ... aww. Too cute!

monty924 said...

DRINKING just because, lol

Sharon S said...

No prob...I pretty much answer to anything that starts with an S... lol

Rochelle said...

wait, monty and sharon all had the winners along with dusty? Wow, congrats to all!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks,

I must be burned out on reality TV. I couldn't love or hate anyone on TAR and I feel the same about Survivor. Or maybe I'm just dead inside. :)

Rochelle said...

God, to be alone with abi has got to be hard. But what's her name the therapist is playing it great. Kudos to her

monty924 said...

I'm with Denise... I would stick big STICKS in my ears just to not have to listen to Abi!

monty924 said...

Yep, three winners here tonight. I think Meb won too. Where is she.

Hey Joe! Can't figure out your apathy when there's Abi :))

Rochelle said...

They're doing greg with that fish! Like they were doing it all their lives. I'd SUCK at that! ha

monty924 said...

LOL, Sharon. Thanks!

Becky said...

Jackie, aren't Mr. & Mrs. Santa terrific? See why I take the girls (and Little Bit this year)?

monty924 said...

Lisa has all of a sudden become a cut throat player. Who woulda thunk it?

Jackie said...

They are definitely a good-looking Mr. and Mrs. Claus. I've thought about taking Vincent somewhere, but even though he's a good traveler and good with people ... I just don't know.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Monty,

That's it, I can't even hate Abi. She's annoying but I can't really hate her. I mean she's been a virtual non-entity when it comes to the game. That's why everyone else basically ignores her. And, at this point, I'd bet just about everyone wants to be opposite her at the end. I mean no one is going to vote for her.

monty924 said...

Scolding the child right now. He's suddenly decided that the tree skirt is his own personal blanket. Didn't do it last Christmas.... hmmmmph

Rochelle said...

lol Joe. I understand

monty924 said...

True, Joe. Did anyone see the final 5 on Jeff's show today? I didn't tape it. Wonder if any juicy tidbits came out?

Rochelle said...

heart attack???

SueGee said...

~~~~Splash~~~~

Just jumping in and out almost immediately. Just got home from work and was listening to the 1212 Concert on local radio here in CA!

SueGee (who hopes her pool pick goes home tonight)

monty924 said...

Oh WOW!! Hope it isn't anything serious. Looks like a spider bite.

Rochelle said...

guess not with fang marks. DId she just say that?

Becky said...

Denise is probably having a reaction from having to deal with Abi by herself the day before.

I hope it doesn't throw her out of the game.

monty924 said...

Howdie SueGee

Becky said...

Oh, Abi, yes, your winning immunity is more important than someones health.

Rochelle said...

ha ha Becky!! IT'S ABI's fangs!

monty924 said...

ANYBODY BUT ABI!

SueGee said...

Monty I saw Jeff's show clip through Facebook this afternoon. No big secrets revealed.

SueGee

SueGee said...

And Monty - my team plays your team again this fall, but on our field. (CAL vs OSU)

SueGee

Rochelle said...

The things Jeff says in this game. He plays his own strategy with those comments

monty924 said...

Go Denise... looking good

Rochelle said...

WOAH!!!!

monty924 said...

WOW!!! Great comeback!

Becky said...

Wonderful! I wish he would give his idol to Denise.

monty924 said...

He'll give it to Denise

Lifeguard Laurie said...

I think this is right.

Abi-Maria : Chrob61, meb, SueGee
Denise : Buzzmaam, Karen in CA
Lisa : Gaylos, Nana in the NW, Terry in TX
Michael : Donna in FL, Lars
Malcolm : Dewan, Margo

Jury
RC (Roberta) : ChicMc, PDX Granny, Sharon S
Jeff : DKNYNC, Jennasmom
Artis : Delee, ML
Pete : Becky, Rbennie
Jonathan : Brian, JonMD1267, Tammy G
Carter : Deb, Pam M in NJ, Syd

Jackie said...

I peeked at Twitter ... the concert is really blowing up the trend tweets. Pink Floyd did Another Brick in the Wall. Hmm...

Becky said...

Give it to Denise and send Lisa home. Hey, Lisa turned me against her when she turned on Malcolm ...even if it is a smart move.

Jackie said...

Becky - But Malcolm was just talking about getting Denise out. I doubt he'll give her the idol. I like Denise, but I think this just might be it for her.

monty924 said...

Can't wait for that SueGee! I have another team I root for in the NCAA... and they're playing Petals' Tide for the BCS. Also a Notre Dame girl here :)))

monty924 said...

Injured again? Skupin is a walking target for injury.

Rochelle said...

oh Geeze!

Becky said...

I know, but it would be wiser to keep Denise.

Rochelle said...

Is S. eating green stuff?

Joe in NY said...

Actually, Malcolm should have probably thrown the immunity challenge UNLESS he's going to give the Idol to someone else to curry favor. I mean what if Denise asks him for it, what's he going to say? He's in an awkward position unless he's going to make a move.

monty924 said...

Don't be so sure of that Malcolm!

Becky said...

Joe, which she did.

monty924 said...

PLEASE

Ed in Ohio said...

Abi's goin' to jury!!

Rochelle said...

so if everyone can beat abi, why does she want to stay? She wins no money....

Becky said...

Abi wouldn't stand a snow balls chance to win.

Ed in Ohio said...

Abi's not giving up!!

monty924 said...

I think so too, Ed!
... with the idiot and moron, I'm DRINKING

Sharon S said...

yikes...she is nasty

Rochelle said...

IS THAT HER STRATEGY TO GET TO THE END?

Rochelle said...

sorry for all caps peeps

monty924 said...

DRINKING

Joe in NY said...

Rochelle, actually there is Final 3 money which is more than just the stipend. She would win more money for making final 3

Becky said...

Malcolm, you are an ass!

Rochelle said...

yeah it's abi

Rochelle said...

YES!!!

Rochelle said...

may the best person win

Sharon S said...

Wow, I thought Lisa and Skupin were going to take Abi to the final.

Rochelle said...

Danku Joe

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, that's a mistake for Lisa and Skupin...especially Skupin.

Skupin as a returnee has a huge strike against him anyway. And I think Denise and Malcolm are more likely to win than Lisa. Abi would have given them a shot.

Rochelle said...

They might as well be sining Ding Dong the Witch is Dead with that dance,,,

SueGee said...

Jackie - seriously check your radio. There has been some great music to listen to and I will watch later. Also lots of comedy too!

SueGee on the left coast

Becky said...

YEAH!!!!! It backfired on Malcolm. He said he would see how it was going. It didn't look good for Denise, but he was sitting like a stump.

I am pulling for Denise to win now.

Becky said...

Sorry, I have this thing about loyalty. That is why I wouldn't do well in this game.

monty924 said...

I was doing the Happy Dance with Skupin, LOL

Thanks Jackie. Will see you all Sunday night... I'll be late, but I'll be here.

Jackie said...

SueGee - I'm recording it as I watch this.

Jackie said...

I have to see Abi's sour grapes at the credits!

Becky said...

See all of you Sunday.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, everyone!

Sharon S said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie!

Testing...still can't post here because reCAPTCHA won't allow it no matter how many times I try. I have made sure my javascript is enabled in my browser, IE9. Does anyone have any answers?

Anonymous said...

Whoa! It worked...after two months of trying. I tried using anonymous rather than my google account. Hmmmmm?

It's me, zoetawny. I can't tell you how frustrating this has been for me and now anonymous is working...spooky. ;)

Anonymous said...

Have to get back to work now but will try to post a comment another day to see if it's still working.

Tragic news today...God bless our children.
