Survivor: Caramoan Fans vs. Favorites - March 27 Blog Party


Cool. No basketball tonight, so we get to watch our show! It should be interesting to see how the castaways mesh in their new tribes. I do think the fans are at a disadvantage as evidenced by Matt's boot last week. But, is Phillip at a disadvantage as well? I guess we'll see!

As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. So, if you're peeking in for the big news, make sure to refresh the page. However, if you're here for the party ... head on down to the comments area! The water is fine!

Lifeguard Laurie has some real life stuff as of late and probably won't make it. She wants y'all to behave in the pool! Here are the latest blog pool standings:

Gota -
Brenda -- Brian, Laurie, Petals
Eddie -- Glenn, Monty, Zoetawny
Malcolm -- Glenn, Monty, Zoetawny
Erik -- Donna in AL, meb, Rbennie
Reynold -- Brian, Laurie, Petals
Sherri -- Becky, Joey & Julie, Nana in the NW
Andrea -- Becky, Joey & Julie, Nana in the NW

Bikal -
Dawn -- dla, Margo, Rochelle
Phillip -- Jackie, Nickelpeed  
Cochran -- Ed in Ohio, ML, Terry in TX
Julia -- Donna in FL, Merrilee, SueGee
Michael -- DKNYNC, Lynn1, Rbennie
Corinne -- DKNYNC, Lynn1, Rbennie


Reward Challenge time! It's the old belted together carrying sandbags through water bit. We've seen this before. Winners get a trip to a local island with a coffee, cookies, croissants and more feast.

Another total massacre. Gota wins reward!

Ah, Malcolm tried to get Reynold aboard with him and Reynold told him he has the idol. Of course, Malcolm has his own idol and has told no one.

Immunity Challenge time! It has them rowing, diving for statues, throwing grappling hooks to snag keys on land, etc.

It wasn't a complete massacre, but Gota won yet again. Man, these teams are really not balanced with the power players!

Phillip told Cochran that he deliberately threw the challenge so they could vote out Julia. @@ Corinne really wants Mike aboard, so that makes Phillip want him gone.

The tally: Mike, Julia, Mike, Julia, Mike, Julia. It's a tie. Re-vote without Mike and Julia participating. They can only vote Mike or Julia.

The second tally: Julia, Julia, Julia.

She's gone.

hi folks

monty924 said...

Hello Jackie and all...

~~~SPLASH~~~

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Joe and Jackie! Thank you for hosting us, Jackie

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Joe and everyone else who shows up.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Monty!

monty924 said...

Didn't see you there, Joe. Ready for a more exciting show this week. Last week was a let down after Brandon's big exit.

monty924 said...

Hey Penny and Becky

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky. And, anyone else I've missed. LOL

Becky said...

Hey, Monty and Penny. Glad to see you here.

monty924 said...

I think the challenges from here on out will destroy Bikal. The Gota tribe has all the strength.

Becky said...

FYI, I will not be here Sunday. I told our minister that I wouldn't be at church for the Easter morning service, but would come that evening if I could. I told him I wanted to spend the day with Momma. This might be the last one we share.

Nickelpeed said...

Understand this, Becky. I think that is important to spend as much time with your mother as you can.

monty924 said...

DRINKING

Becky said...

DRINK!!!! SAM is on. That man needs to learn to stop praising himself!

Petals said...

DRINK!
~*~*~*~ splash ~*~*~*~

Hey everyone!

monty924 said...

I'd love to see Cochran take Phillip DOWN, lol

DRINKING again

Nickelpeed said...

Me thinks Philip is a little too arrogant...

monty924 said...

Hey, Petals. Good to see ya here

Becky said...

As the saying goes...Pride goes before a fall."

Petals said...

Happy early Easter, Becky. Yes, time with your mom is special.

monty924 said...

DRINKING

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Guys!

DRINK! Me thinks Phillip doth talk too much!

Becky said...

Hey, Mrs. Petals!

Petals said...

gee, Penny - ya think?? LOL


Petals said...

Hey Gramma Becky! ;)

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I do know one thing, when I was in the military, they put all the short people in the back because taller people have a longer stride.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Petals, good seeing you!!!!

monty924 said...

And SAM is the first one to tire out. Who would have thunk it?

Petals said...

Reality Steve was talking about the dominance of R.E.M. team (reynold, eddie, malcolm)
I agree - they will dominate.

Geeminy SAM, what happened to your having the body of a 20yr old??

Nickelpeed said...

Geesh, all these young guys on Gota; poor Bikal.

Joe in NY said...

I'm a little surprised that Dawn dropped out

Petals said...

naturally Phil will prolly blame the others for slowing him down.

SueGee said...

~~~~Splash~~

Hi everyone!! Home early because everyone is on spring break and there is no traffic!!!

SueGee on the Left Coast

Nickelpeed said...

I don't like the over cheering by Brenda.

monty924 said...

Brenda was a little too cocky there. It won't help her after the merge.

Becky said...

He cost them. And he never even took another bag!

Petals said...

me too Joe. Maybe she knew better than to wear herself out for nothing.

Joe in NY said...

It is a total physical mismatch. Jeff Probst said as much in an interview last week. Suggested he was a little disappointed it wasn't a more even split when they shuffled.

These guys really need a puzzle or something...although I'm not sure they could even win that.

Petals said...

Hey SueG! You didn't miss much: Phillip lecturing, posturing, and losing. LOL

monty924 said...

Great minds think alike, Penny. :))

I watched the other challenge today on CBS. I say Bikal goes to tribal AGAIN tonight. What they need is a good puzzle to even out the odds, lol.

Jackie said...

Becky - Give your Mom some love time.

monty924 said...

So right, Becky and Corrine took all the extra weight. Something I'm sure SAM will NOT appreciate. I hope the others do.

Petals said...

Did anyone read the EW article about Brandon Hantz(sp)? The author was questioning the entertainment value of having an obviously psychologically-challenged person on a show like Survivor...TWICE.

Becky said...

Thanks for the well wishes for Momma.

monty924 said...

Great minds @ Joe :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

Eddie, Reynold, Malcom > Bikal tribe

Joe in NY said...

He's an arrogant ass...

Jackie said...

I read it, Petals. Also, on the CBS site, the interview with Coach/Parvati and Brandon was quite intriguing. I never thought I'd agree with Coach!

SueGee said...

Missed some drinking too I guess. Will have to catch up

SueGee

Becky said...

Malcolm is so darn cute!

monty924 said...

Becky, I missed your comment. Definitely go spend time with your momma and get all the time with her that you can. HUGS

monty924 said...

SAM is slipping! DRINK

Petals said...

Ed - R.E.M.

Joe in NY said...

I don't think Hantz's issues would be obvious in a psych interview. All contestants have to pass a psych interview. I think a lot of it is triggered by the lack of food, sleep, etc. You notice he starts out level-headed and gets progressively more unbalanced as the game goes on.

So, I sort of excuse the first appearance. But as I said two weeks ago, shame on CBS for putting him out there a second time when they know what happens.

SueGee said...

Did you see the news today about a contestant dying on Survivor France? Had a heart attack when they dropped the off at their island.

And I totally agree about Hantz (both of them!!)

SueGee

Jackie said...

BTW - There's a big casting call for BB at Mohegan Sun (CT) tomorrow with ex-houseguests as well as the casting people. I'm not going.

Petals said...

DRINK!

Petals said...

Phil is close to Julia because she is the only audience he has!

drinking!! Wonder what her code name will be?

Becky said...

Double agent. Is he passing gas or is that the sound track?

monty924 said...

The after show last week was epic. Coach had Brandon down to the enth degree.

Joe in NY said...

LOL, Monty.

I'd like them to have a puzzle comp and still lose. The next best thing to a back and forth game is a total tribe decimation. LOL

Frankly, if Bikal is completely decimated, it might hurt the faves and help the fana.

Becky said...

What did Coach say?

monty924 said...

Jackie, there was a casting call in West Virginia a week or so ago. The first one ever. I just hope they don't cast any types like the Buckwild cast. WV is NOT full of rednecks despite popular belief.

Ed in Ohio said...

Petals REM...@ 1st glance I thought music??

Then I got it Reynold, Eddie, Malcom. Good nick name!

Petals said...

When the weaklings (Bikal) are picked-off, it will be a good show - watching how the R.E.E.M. (reynold, eddie, erik, malcolm) compete against one another!
"Eye candy, table for one!"

SueGee said...

Gonna have to go look for that interview. My Survivor friend keeps telling me I would like Coach if I met him. I did like him a bit better last time he was on.

SueGee

monty924 said...

Ut, oh. Not sure telling Malcolm that he had an idol was such a great idea. It might be for my pool boy, but not so great for Reynold.

Joe in NY said...

Hi SueGee,

I saw the news yesterday about Survivor France. The 25 year old contestant went into heart failure during a comp. Sounded kind of grueling, with swimming and hauling. He went down (like Russell a few years ago) but he coded several times during medivac.

They canceled the season and flew them all back to France. Would have been interesting to see how it would have played out if they hadn't pulled the plug. I mean, would everyone quit, would they go slower, would they go harder...you know.

I saw a picture of the guy. He looked pretty buff. I wouldn't be surprised to find out he had some hidden heart defect or something that had never been diagnosed. Unusual for a young buck to go into cardiac arrest like that.

monty924 said...

Lol, Joe. It would be like Stephanie and what's his name. Their tribe was decimated and she was the only one to make it to merge. While entertaining, I hope that doesn't happen to Bikal. I have a fondness for Cochran. :)))

Petals said...

Ed - I changed it to include Erik. He is a power player, too (I guess, according to M)

Petals said...

me too Monty!
Stephanie looked like Fergie. I liked her!

Jackie said...

SueGee - Coach actually came off as fairly likable and a bit "normal." He also seemed intelligent. Makes you wonder how hard these folks work to be outlandish characters.

Petals said...

Joe - that's sad.

Ed in Ohio said...

R.E.E.M. OK!

That's probably what they'll do to Bikal!!

Petals said...

What kind of business does Sherrie own? She is out of place at REEM

monty924 said...

Oh, great. Did he just say FOO PAH?

monty924 said...

monty924 said...

I think she has a restaurant franchise. Not sure about that though.

Nickelpeed said...

Darn, Bikal needs to catch up.

Becky said...

Reynolds is good at challanges but I don't care for him. Too much like the so called "used car salesman".

monty924 said...

VOTE SAM OUT!!! He's useless at this point in the game.

Ed in Ohio said...

Definitely a Mis-match!!

Nickelpeed said...

Philip needs to let others try, too. Dang. There has to be someone else on his tribe that can carry the load, too.

This was such a bad switch for Bikal.

Ed in Ohio said...

I'd prefer a little more 'competition' but you never know....


i.e. Tortoise & the Hare

Nickelpeed said...

I think when other countries try to copy Survivor, they make the challenges really hard, over the top. He could have had heat exhaustion.

monty924 said...

It couldn't have been worse, Penny. Gota got all of the brawn from the old Bikal and Eddie and Reynold were the brawn of the old Gota.

Becky said...

He needs to go, but I bet it's Julia. He thinks he can do it all by himself.

monty924 said...

Ed, you aren't off the mark. Hopefully someone like Cochran can survive until the merge and then he could be golden. I wouldn't count your boy out. :))

monty924 said...

DRINK

Becky said...

LOLOLOL Phillip is something else. SAM!

Nickelpeed said...

That is horrible. He threw the challenge? Cochran is smarter than that. I can see Cochran going really far. It makes me wonder just what is wrong with Philip???

monty924 said...

The spy's basic tool, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Sorry SAM I 'aint' buyin it!!

Petals said...

Drink!!

monty924 said...

Corrine, you don't have the idol. Malcolm DOES!

Nickelpeed said...

Even if they got rid of Philip, this team is too weak to win a physical challenge; and possibly an intellectual challenge.

Petals said...

I really dislike Phillip.

Ed in Ohio said...

I vs. We!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Petals said...

He isn't even doing the feathers, so there is no entertainment value to Phil anymore.
he is just a pompous ass!

Nickelpeed said...

Gota definitely got the best deal out of this. They are very strong and I do not think Bikal can even win.

monty924 said...

DRINK

Petals said...

drinking. And loathing. what a douchebag

Ed in Ohio said...

Blah, Blah, Blah.......

Becky said...

I agree that SAM is no longer funny.

Petals said...

SAM is still living in 1982 (or whatever year he worked for the govt)
Wake-up! You aren't Sean Connery, man!

Petals said...

TIE

DRINKING

Petals said...

why would phil want Julia out? she was his only minion.

monty924 said...

They won't tick off SAM. I bet Michael is gone.

monty924 said...

I was wrong, lol. Corrine got her way. Good for her. DRINKING

Petals said...

WTH? She was not a factor in the game, so her departure won't matter, but - why won't these idiots turn on SAM?

Nickelpeed said...

If they do not merge soon, there will be none of them left...

Thank you Jackie, appreciate it

Becky enjoy Sunday with your Mom.

See everyone else Sunday!!!

Becky said...

I wonder who the fourth person voted for? I bet SAM voted for Michael.

SueGee said...

I just took some steaks off the grill and onion rings out of the oven. Dig in!

SueGee (who is starving right now)

Becky said...

There was one uncounted vote.

monty924 said...

Well, it is clear we've all gone from half loving the lovable SAMy to loathing him. I think his quirkiness has worn out the welcome.

Jackie said...

Tossed out of the pool with Julia -- DKNYNC, Lynn1, Rbennie

Ed in Ohio said...

Tonites episode was kind of WEAK!!

Good Nite everyone!

Thanks Jackie!

Petals said...

oh Sue - YUM! I was starving! Thank you! I have nothing to offer except a package of pink Easter PEEPs, LOL

Jackie said...

Becky - When they do it that way, it's almost always unanimous.

Nickelpeed said...

YAY...Merge!!!

Petals said...

Ahh - food-eating! That is a fair challenge.

monty924 said...

SueGee those steaks sound great. I think I'm going to throw something on the indoor grill. :)

Thanks again for hosting us, Jackie. See you all next week for the gross out comp. I've been wondering when they would do that again.

Night all!

Nickelpeed said...

Phil voted Michael.

Becky said...

Night, everyone. See you next week. Thanks, Jackie.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, everyone!
