Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites - April 17 Blog Party

Survivor: Caramoan photo SCaramoanJackie_zpsf4f14b87.gif


Yes! Due to a miscommunication and then upload issues, I haven't been sporting Zoetawny's cool graphic for this season! But, I finally got it to work and here it is! She rocks, y'know.

Tonight's show should be interesting if the promos are true. While Dawn's breakdown isn't too desirable, Cochran's comment about the Tribal Council being the best one ever, as well as promises of a huge upset at Tribal ... well, it sounds like a winner to me!

As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Remember to refresh the page to get the latest. As always, the real party is down in the comments. Come mock the show with us, the cool kids!

Ah, Dawn's breakdown is because she lost her bottom retainer bridge with her front teeth. Now, THAT I can understand freaking out about! Brenda retrieved it from the waters for her and now they're bonded.

Rewards Challenge -- two teams of fives, obstacles, muddy pit, bags of balls, dig through rice, balls into basket. Winning team goes to a hotel, luxury meals, etc.

Purple - Cochran, Phillip, Erik, Reynold, Dawn

Orange - Malcolm, Andrea, Sherri, Brenda, Eddie

Purple wins Reward!

Uh-oh. It's not just the teeth with Dawn. She's in unstable mode. Sigh.

After a good night's sleep, Dawn is normal once again. The Stealth R Us plan is to target Reynold.

Immunity is up for grabs -- two heats, jump in ocean, move rings to posts. Phillip claims he's sitting out because he had a bad experience in water as a boy. @@

Reynold wins Immunity! I guess they'll need a new target, eh?

The new targets are Malcolm and Eddie. Malcolm has his idol, but doesn't want to use it. He's searching for another one. He's not the only one searching. He finds the second idol for himself right in front of people (or, played a clever hoax to get the vote off him).

Tribal Council time. Whoa! Malcolm gave the second immunity idol to Eddie! He really did have them both! Now, the three targets all have immunity. Malcolm says all three of them will vote for Phillip and calls him the fun sponge (sucks all the fun out of the game).

Erik votes "fillup" -- no other votes shown.

Eddie and Malcolm play the idols.

Votes: Malcolm, Malcolm, Eddie, Eddie, Eddie, Eddie, Phillip, Phillip, fillup!

Phillip, my blog pool pick, is gonzo! Good, now I can cheer on Cochran!

Plenty of Chardonnay over at the bar. Here's to SAMy, lol

Petals said...

~*~**~~ splash ~*~*~*~*~


OMG, Monty, I love your avatar!!!

Hey everyone! I brought SkinnyGirl martini mix!

monty924 said...

Hey, Jackie. Looks like we're the only ones here.

monty924 said...

Nope, hey Petals. Isn't he dreamy?

Petals said...

Yeah, even in night-vision

Petals said...

I despise Phillip.

monty924 said...

From the previews this week, looks like we're going to LOVE tribal tonight. Already love Cochran, so it perhaps is a given, LOL.

Jackie said...

SRS - DRINK! Love Cochran doing the loco motion for Phillip.

monty924 said...

Well, I despise him but his flabby six pack is so HOT. not, wink

monty924 said...

I think Cochran has the best confessionals and reactions to SAMy's insanity.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Monty and Petals. I brought pizza. Not NY pizza or Chicago pizza, but TX pizza. Where else can you get jalapeno slices on your pizza?

Just kidding. I picked up a pizza for our lunch today and you can get jalapeno slices!

Nickelpeed said...

Love Zoetawny's gif!!!

monty924 said...

Hey Penny and Becky. Yummy pizza!

Crying.... DRINK

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All!

"Pretty In Pink" ^5 Monty LOL!!!

Petals said...

Oh geeminy. What a menopausal whiner!

Petals said...

she lost her partial, LMAO

monty924 said...

Ohhh, I'd cry too. Feel bad for Dawn :(

Petals said...

MMMM TX Pizza, thank Becky! How are ya?

monty924 said...

Yay, Brenda!

Ed in Ohio said...

Zoetawny is quite talented. Kudos on the graphic!

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. I can see if she lost her top teeth, but the bottom? I guess I can understand in some ways. Good, she found them at least.

Petals said...

drinking to Brenda. *clink*

monty924 said...

Hey Ed. I'm hoping this little toast to SAMy is his last.

Becky said...

Now we know why Dawn broke down. I can appreciate why she melted.

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks!

OMG! Total fake-out with all the ads this week.

And I just lost a lot of respect for her. I mean, the crying is one thing. But why couldn't she look around herself before just melting down and sending Brenda diving.

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, is that a picture of Philip in his pink tighties? LMAO

Petals said...

"bag of balls"... hur hur hur

Nickelpeed said...

With powerful guys, I can see them winning a lot.

monty924 said...

Drinking to the slip-n-slide. Not a great one... but just the same.

monty924 said...

Penny, it is... :)))

Petals said...

"bag of balls"... hur hur hur

Ed in Ohio said...

Wonder if Malcolm's strategy is going to work??

Petals said...

Joe - I totally agree. She should have gotten her effin partial her damned self! WHAH!

Petals said...

great challenge!

Becky said...

I lost my teeth due to a periodontal disease. I can understand totally.

Petals said...

sherry is skeletal. YUCK

Joe in NY said...

Love Brenda.

Petals said...

damn, purple is kickin it

Ed in Ohio said...

WOW Shutout!!

Petals said...

yay, Reynold wins (but ewwww so does SAMy)
drinking (any excuse, LOL)


Is it me, or does it seem like the producers are trying to trip-up Malcolm at every turn?

Joe in NY said...

I understand why Dawn was upset. It's TV. (Although for $1 million dollars, they can show my ugly ass all season long.) But I don't understand the need to go ballistic, cry for help and stand there like a baby while Brenda finds the partial. I mean, if she had lost her glasses and was blind or something. But how was her partial preventing her diving?

monty924 said...

Ed, it worked but Reynold did the same and Sherri blew it for orange. She's pretty useless in challenges. No wonder she wants the play the social game!!

Becky said...

Annon, I don't think I will go.

Petals, I am hanging in there. I took another test Monday. Hopefully they found out something. I have an appointment tomorrow.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree with you Petals. Malcolm just can't get ahead.

Becky said...

Momma is doing very well except she has a lot of fluid in her feet and legs. We are taking her to our family reunion this Sat. The doctor said he thought it would do her good. He said she could stay the weekend, but we feel that for the first time a day trip would be best.

I think Sherri is a waste of space -- and I have her in the pool I think.

monty924 said...

CBS hooked us in with the Dawn preview. Wonder if the "ultimate shocker" at tribal will just be more of the same?

Nickelpeed said...

I think it's just her...LOL

monty924 said...

Ewwww

Petals said...

{{Becky}}

Hey Laurie!!

Yes, Dawn is a completely different person than last time. Not in a good way.

Nickelpeed said...

Yuck Philip. Geeze. That WAS a nice pool.

Petals said...

Does Dawn need someone to turn it on for her?

Of course Philip shits in the pool.
Drink!

Becky said...

Look at the trail of mud that Phillip left behind.

Ed in Ohio said...

I hear you Monty, I don't care much for Sherry.

(No offense to her pool pick)

Becky said...

Oh, Phillip, hush up!

Petals said...

Dawn, are you blind? Of course she is spending time with R.E.E.M! They are nice to look at!

Petals said...

Ed - Sherry is disturbing to look at. For me. Yuck

Nickelpeed said...

They really need to get rid of either Philip or Dawn. He's already crazy, I think she'll lose it, too, if she stays.

monty924 said...

Talk some sense into her, Cochran!

Petals said...

Get the EFF out, Dawn. BUH BYE!

monty924 said...

I agree, Dawn. DRINKING again just because.

Petals said...

LMAO Cochran. Hummingbird Over the Cuckoos Nest!

DRINKING to the best line so far!

Joe in NY said...

I hate to see it, but Dawn is almost as annoying as Philip. They both need constant "handling".

Becky said...

I think losing the teeth just helped Dawn go over the edge.

I do hope they vote out SAM.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm just noticing all these cool avatars about Philip. How funny and ingenious!!!

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~

Howdy everyone! I made it home early this week!

Great graphics Jackie! Zoetawny is awesome!!

SueGee on the left coast

monty924 said...

(((Becky))) Keeping you and your momma in my thoughts and prayers.

Lifeguard Laurie said...

My oh my, tonight's show sounds interesting from your comments. Can't wait to see it myself when it airs here.

monty924 said...

Howdie, SueGee! I think Cochran can reign in Dawn. SAMy is a lost cause. He's the true Cuckoo!

Petals said...

Hey SueG!

LOL, Monty. SAMy built the nest & jumped out of it!

Petals said...

Drinks ready - SAMy is gathering the crowd.

monty924 said...

DRINKING to stealth

Nickelpeed said...

Her saying that and them saying Reynold, betting he gets the II and they blindside. L

Petals said...

dammit! The A-Team is in danger!

SueGee said...

The hot rumor in Survivor circles is they want to have a favorites vs family show....but too many are turning them down to do it. (I confirmed this with my friend and it is true)


SueGee

Becky said...

That and having to sleep in the same area and be around Phillip for 28 days would drive anyone bonkers.

Petals said...

C'MON Malcolm!!! C'MON Reynold!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, so good to hear momma is doing better. Do they know why she has a build up of fluid? The reunion ought to lift her spirits a lot.

Petals said...

LOL Becky!

Ed in Ohio said...

That was a cake walk for Reynold!

monty924 said...

WTH???

DRINK

Becky said...

Phillip is such a wuzz.

Petals said...

Of course he isn't going to participate!

LOSER, LAZY!!!

DRINK!

Joe in NY said...

Hasn't Philip been in the water before? I'm confused.

Ed in Ohio said...

C'mon Eddie Boy!!

Joe in NY said...

ok, seriously? Brenda and Andrea against the 2 big guys...

monty924 said...

Ouch for my pool boy.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know about a Favorites vs Family show. I can see why the favorites are turning it down.

Thanks for the info, SueGee.

Philip not participating? Oh well.

Ed in Ohio said...

Eddie Awwwwww!!

Petals said...

Down to Mal & Reyn!

monty924 said...

Love this challenge!

Becky said...

Go, Malcolm!

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Malcolm

Petals said...

nail-biter!

Ed in Ohio said...

Doesn't seem fair but they are out numbered so......

monty924 said...

There goes that plan, LOL

Petals said...

WHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Thank god!

Nickelpeed said...

There goes their plans....Yikes. Bummer. Will they target Malcolm now? Hope they decide on Philip, we'll see.

Petals said...

*you guys can't see, but I am flipping-off Phillip* LOL

Joe in NY said...

Whose Family? I'm confused.

Becky said...

Oh, Malcom, you are in trouble. Reynold is a tough adversary but I just don't care for him.

monty924 said...

LOL @ Petals! We need a birdie sign.

Malcolm will play his idol, or he should. Who does that leave? Eddie or hopefully SAMy!

Ed in Ohio said...

It really wouldn't be a 'shocker' if it's Malcom or Eddie.

SAM??

Ed in Ohio said...

LOL Petals I'm seeing 'the bird'!

Becky said...

I just hope they vote for Phillip, but I doubt they will.

monty924 said...

Ed, I need a reason to get rid of the Pretty In Pink avi ;-)))

Send SAMy packing. DRINK

monty924 said...

Agree with Reynold on that one.

Ed in Ohio said...

DRINK!

Petals said...

Reynold looks good in that necklace!

Please sheeple - get rid of Shamar Junior!

Petals said...

LMAO Reynold! DRINK!

Petals said...

drinking. Phillip is a huge liar.

monty924 said...

YES, now they know he has an idol so they won't vote for him. Doing the HAPPY DANCE!

Petals said...

Mal has 2, he can give one to Eddie!

monty924 said...

Oops, guess they will. But he could give one to Eddie. I likey!

Delee said...

I think Malcolm hid it there and is letting on he found a new one!

monty924 said...

Drinks ready???

Becky said...

Andrea is my pool pick too. I bet she burns Eddie.

Petals said...

that sucks so bad for Eddie. Not fair.

Delee said...

Michael was funny on Ponderosa, he does not want SAM to be the next to join him there!

monty924 said...

Loved that grin/smile... DRINKING to my pool boy

monty924 said...

That's just SAM talking there...

monty924 said...

OUCH!!!!! Love it....

Nickelpeed said...

How too funny!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

WOW just WOW!! Malcom!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

I am stoked! LMAO

monty924 said...

3 amigos, LOL

Petals said...

LMAO!!! Drinking!!!! Our boys are AWESOME!!!!

Kiss it, losers!

Petals said...

Phillip, please. Cut him loose!

monty924 said...

Throwing popcorn at the screen

monty924 said...

Fun Sponge

DRINK

Joe in NY said...

The solution is easy. Split the vote with Malcolm and Sherry. If Malcolm doesn't play the idol he goes home. If he does, Sherry goes home and no loss and the idols are flushed.

Petals said...

Malcolm, will you marry me? *swoon*

Petals said...

fun sponge!!!!

Becky said...

Sorry, Phillip, you are.

Petals said...

thank you Jeff, for the spellcheck, love it!


DRINKING!

Nickelpeed said...

This is great...Best tribal council -
EVER. Too good.

monty924 said...

DRINKING to Cochran... his name hasn't even come up

Nickelpeed said...

Petal - I wonder if polygamy is the same for women as it is for men????
;-)

monty924 said...

Sitting here literally laughing out loud!

Nickelpeed said...

I am liking Cochran a lot this time.

Joe in NY said...

Problem is, those 3 are totally screwed after tonight. They have no numbers and no idols.

monty924 said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
monty924 said...

Fillup
Bwahahahahahahahahaha

Joe in NY said...

they should have gone with my strategy. Sherry would be gone and all the idols flushed.

Nickelpeed said...

Woooooohooooo. NOW - let the games really begin.

Ed in Ohio said...

Buh-Bye!!! They took away your number SAM!

Becky said...

What a great TC. Instead of Fillup it should have been Fedup. Last toast for SAM's backside.

Nickelpeed said...

I wonder if Cochran wrote: Fillup?

Petals said...

*happy dance*

Breaking out the champagne!
Champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends!

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, if I'm the Fav alliance, I'm not unhappy about that tribal. Phillip drove them all crazy and he's gone. They still have numbers. And the idols are flushed.

On the other hand, if they get paranoid and start looking for a new strategy, they'll fragment and it's over. They just need to keep the faith.

Ed in Ohio said...

The 3 Amigos live to fight another day. They better start working on flippin' somebody.

monty924 said...

Whatever happens next week, this tribal council can't be out done. Love, love, loved it! Now to get rid of my pretty pink avi. Weeeeeeeeeeeee

monty924 said...

Sippin' champagne, feelin' no pain...

Petals said...

best night ever. Jackie, you are quiet. Are you happy?? WHOO!!!!!


Code name: don'tletthedoorhityouintheass!

Ed in Ohio said...

Atta boy Cochran!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, see everyone Sunday.

Thank you Jackie for hosting us.

monty924 said...

SAMy going out.. still boasting the BR playbook. DRINK

My last drink. Fun night at the pool. Thanks Jackie!

Jackie said...

Indeed a good TC! Thank you all for coming by!

SueGee said...

Yipeeeee

Can't wait to watch tonight's show!!

SueGee

Petals said...

Brainstorm for another drinking word, LOL

Love you guys!
ciao

Ed in Ohio said...

Loved it! Nite All! Thanks Jackie!

P.S. If you can't beat 'em ...join 'em.

Dusty said...

I am so glad that "fill-up" is gone!!! What a fantastic turn of events!!! I love it!!!

Brandy said...

Breanda, I think you are the most disgusting,poor excuse of a woman! I understand that your feeling was hurt but it is a GAME! You took it to a whole other level making dawn do that! As a woman you should know better than to call another woman out in that way to ask her to take her teeth out. REALLY? Then to sit there with a smerk on your face like it was ok! She has six kids,friends,family who had to watch that so u not only affected her life but theirs as well! how would you like it if someone did that to you or your mother,sister,any of your family for that matter? As if that wasn't bad enough your expect an apology from her, you should be saying sorry.Im so glad you didn't win I don't think you deserve anything! I wish I could have been there as a woman a mother,sister, friend to tell you what I think of you! then again it is better that im not because I prob would have smacked some thought into your pee size head of yours! you are pathetic! sorry ass woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
