Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites - May 1 Blog Party

Survivor: Caramoan photo SCaramoanJackie_zpsf4f14b87.gif

We're getting down to the wire with this season. Tonight is a double tribal council with two heading to the jury. The season finale is scheduled for May 12. Yes, Mother's Day -- a week from this coming Sunday.

Normally, I don't cheer on a returning player on these shows. I'm really not too keen on them bringing back folks we've seen before. However, this season is an exception. I'd like to see Cochran win it all. That doesn't mean I won't whine and fuss the next time they bring back returning castaways. It's only a one season pass for them. Got that, CBS?

As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Please refresh the page to get the latest news. The party will be going on in the comments area. Come join in! We'd love to have you. Oh. And bring snacks. Oh. And beverages, too.

Tree Mail brought news that they'd have another Immunity Challenge ahead, not a reward. They have to balance on platforms in the water. They're also playing for reward -- information. Jeff is trying to bribe them with donuts and milk. Erik talks Eddie into going for them with him. Silly Eddie. Three hot dogs and a soda get Cochran to jump. He's hoping one of the favorites wins, not Reynold. He said he couldn't hold on much longer. It's down to Andrea and Brenda -- they're talking about each being safe and sharing the clue, but neither wants to jump. They've been up there three hours. Brenda falls ... Andrea wins Immunity and the clue!

The clue is to the hidden idol. She told everyone (but Reynold and Eddie). Erik found the idol in front of her and handed it over. Uh-oh. She's thinking of targeting Brenda instead of Reynold or Eddie. Yipes.

Tribal Council time! Brenda votes Reynold, the only vote shown pre-tally.

Tally -- um, commercial first. Grr.

Erik, Sherri, Reynold, Eddie, Reynold, Eddie, Reynold, Reynold.

Reynold is history.

Andrea is once again talking Brenda. Cochran isn't keen on either Brenda or Dawn going right now. He tells Brenda. They talk of blindsiding Andrea.

Immunity is up for grabs once again. Push a buoy through obstacles, key, chest, ladder puzzle. Erik wins Immunity! 

Andrea thinks her ducks are in a row and Brenda will go. We'll see.

Tribal Council time again! Brenda and Andrea vote for each other.

The tally -- Andrea does NOT play the idol -- Brenda, Andrea, Eddie, Eddie, Andrea, Brenda, Andrea. Blindside goes to Andrea!

Hi Jackie and everyone!

Woohoo... double the fun tonight. In honor of Cinco de Mayo (on Sunday), I say we start celebrating early. Margaritas all around.

DIVING IN ~~~SPLASH~~~

Petals said...

~*~*~*~*~*~ SPLASH ~*~*~*~**~

Whooo! I have BBQ pulled pork sliders & a case of Sam Adams (which you already know, Monty, LOL)


Drinking word? Crying is always a good drinking thing...but how about the word "final"?

monty924 said...

I think Sherri thinks too highly of herself in the game!

Petals said...

DRINK!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Monty. Hi Jackie. Thank you for hosting, Jackie.

I'll drink to that, Monty!!

monty924 said...

I'll drink to that, Petals. *wink*

I brought the cole slaw and pickles (for the westies)!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Petals!!!

monty924 said...

Hey Penny

Petals said...

Sherri is ... a stick figure.

Petals said...

Hey Penny!!

monty924 said...

I wonder if the three amigos will be done to uno tonight? Or worse, gone all together!

monty924 said...

*down, not done

Petals said...

I hate Malcolm being gone. We have Reynold (I like him)

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

monty924 said...

I'm going to vote for Malcolm for fan favorite. He would have won it last season if not for Lisa and the Blair factor.

Joe in NY said...

Reynold is a pig. I know you are all about the beefcake, Petals, but seriously...Reynold?

monty924 said...

Hi there, Joe!

Petals said...

Brenda should do well at this

monty924 said...

Eddie, you IDIOT!!!

Joe in NY said...

OK. No respect at all for Eddie, the other pig. How can you possibly sacrifice immunity for a donut if you care at all about winning the game?

Petals said...

Hey Joe! How is the babygirl?

monty924 said...

Agree, Joe!

Becky said...

Fools!!! You will hate donuts, Eddie. Cochran, Hey, everyone.

Petals said...

Hey Becky

monty924 said...

Hi Becky. It always blows my mind why they would step down for food when they are in jeopardy.

monty924 said...

Why does that not surprise me. Sherri is the goat they could take to the end. She never does well in challenges.

Petals said...

Wow.

hey - there are sliders beer & 'ritas!

monty924 said...

Ut oh!

Petals said...

Amazing job Reynold.

Petals said...

Brenda is my "fave" pool chick. Glad she is emerging in the game & hanging tough!

Becky said...

I guess Eddie and Reynold will go home.

monty924 said...

Andrea already knows the idol is by the well???

Joe in NY said...

Frankly, Eddie wasn't going to beat the girls anyway. But, still. If you are really "fighting", you give it a go.

Petals said...

who won? (we have a huge storm here, knocked out our TV)

monty924 said...

The sliders are yummm! Been waiting on them all day.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky...how is momma?


Well, I think Eddie like Brenda, so I think Reynold will leave soon; and I think one of the girls will leave before Eddie. I think they like him much better than the rest. Erick and he are friends.

monty924 said...

Andrea won immunity!

Becky said...

I like Brenda too, Monty. But I am pulling for Cochran. If he doesn't make it to the end I will vote for either him or Malcolm as fan favorite.

Joe in NY said...

This guys are obsessed with splitting votes. It's probably safe here, even if one of the 6 jump the best the Two Pigs could do is force a tie and lose a revote. But on every vote they take a clear majority and turn it into a razor thin advantage. They are just lucky no one except Malcolm ever jumped ship.

monty924 said...

Stay safe out there, Petals. Don't like to hear storms your way... that means it's heading my way.

Becky said...

All the food is wonderful. Along with the drinks. I will bring watermelon on Sunday.

They might like Eddie, but I think they will vote him out.

monty924 said...

Becky, I'm rooting for Cochran too. I have Eddie left in the pool, but he doesn't stand a chance.

monty924 said...

GO ERIC

Petals said...

It's that cold front...the sky is black,huge gusts of wind. We have power, just no DirectTV. It is going to snow tomorrow. Can you believe it??
I'll just hang over here by the bar & nibble. (and drink, of course)

Let me know when someone says "final"

Or - where can I watch it online, live??

monty924 said...

Scratch that! D-U-M-B

He has a habit of handing over idols to women, UGH

Becky said...

Erick, you are REALLY dense.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All! Jumpin in late! Missed the first 15 minutes. So if I got this right Eddie gave up a shot at immunity for a DONUT??!! Duh!

Reynold seems doomed anyway I don't think it's possible to win immunity every time to the end which it looks like he would have needed to do.

Nickelpeed said...

I like Brenda better than Andrea.

monty924 said...

Cochran said end game.... DRINK up, Petals!

monty924 said...

Here comes that cutie Malcolm

monty924 said...

Love his hair, sigh!

Nickelpeed said...

Ooooooh....his HAIR!!! I LOVE his hair!!!!

Petals said...

OH MAN!!!??? I am missing a homina-homina moment with Ozzy Jr?

Becky said...

Drop a big hint, Jeff!

monty924 said...

Great minds think alike, Penny ;-)

Nickelpeed said...

I really like Cochran so much better this time through. Erik is flaky as ever....lol

monty924 said...

Andrea is shooting herself in the foot. She may have immunity now, but she's made herself a target for the next vote.

Petals said...

*drinking*

Oh - it's back! For now. I'm trying to speed it up, but grrrr....it's locking up!

monty924 said...

Looks like it will be bye-bye Reynold... Malcolm said that Reynold knew the clue to the idol because he shared it with him before he went looking for it. I wonder if Reynold even looked for it?

Becky said...

Penny, I like Brenda better too -- and I have Andrea in the pool.

Petals said...

I'm at the beginning of tribal now, not even to the vote yet...trying to catch up.

monty924 said...

Your boy is gone, Petals!

Ed in Ohio said...

Well that was no surprise!

monty924 said...

At least he didn't leave bitter.

Petals said...

Oh no!!!! Oh well, we have 2 sexy effers on the jury now.

Petals said...

Hey Ed :)

monty924 said...

Didn't see you pop in, Ed. The amigos are down to one.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, he did make the show livelier. LOL

Just wish Malcolm was still there. Wish they'd get rid of Sherri.

Nickelpeed said...

I'd really like to see Andrea go!

Petals said...

(damn! Malcolm is looking sooooo mmmmmm) My husband is sitting next to me, watching. It's hard not to ooohh & ahhhh.

Petals said...

me too Penny!

monty924 said...

I don't think Sherri is even on anyone's radar. She's useless!

Petals said...

Andrea is jealous of Brenda. IMO

Sam Adams anyone?

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Petals/Monty!

Yea only Eddie left from the 3 and his days are probably numbered. This group that's left really does not impress me.

monty924 said...

Why does that not surpise me? Sherri behind????

Nickelpeed said...

Seeing Andrea with Eddie makes me want her to go more. She's targeting all the others before him. I do like Eddie, though.

Becky said...

I have Sheri too. And I don't care for her either!

Petals said...

Oh I dunno, Monty. Sherri could be useful - maybe as a Q-Tip for an elephant

Nickelpeed said...

I'dd like to see Brenda win this. Erik would be fine, too.

Ed in Ohio said...

See ya' Eddie!

Petals, Q-tip LOL!

Becky said...

They should let Andrea think that they are all voting for Eddie and then blindside him.

Becky said...

I meant her.

Nickelpeed said...

Yikes, there goes Eddie or Brenda?

Joe in NY said...

I don't think Eddie is smart enough to swing his own deal. He'll have to hope someone else wants to work something with him.

Although there really is no point in jumping unless you have a solid 3...and Eddie makes 4. If you have an alliance bigger than 3 already, there is no need to use Eddie. And if you have a solid alliance of less than 3, you may screw yourself by trying to find two other weak jumpers.

That said, 7 is the number if you want to shake things up.

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too, Becky; however, she really wants to target one of the others. She like Eddie. I would like to see another blindside.

Joe in NY said...

Becky, they better let Andrea think they are all voting for Brenda not Eddie. If she thinks her boy Eddie is going, she may try something desperate to save him and screw them up. If she thinks she's getting her way on Brenda, she'll sit back, idol in pocket and go home.

Petals said...

You guys owe me a drink! Jeff said "final" - DRINK! :)

Argh! Why did I answer the phone? Life stepped in and now I'm way behind. Know how you feel now, Petals.

Ed in Ohio said...

It's getting too predictable.

They need to shake it up!!

Nickelpeed said...

Stay safe, Petals. I hate it when I lose power when Survivor is on!!! LOL

Monty, remember Andrea followed Malcolm to the well? He wouldn't look for the Idol with Andrea sitting there. LOL

Petals said...

oops.

Nickelpeed said...

See, she's trying to save Eddie. Man, I hope they turn the tables.

Petals said...

Eddie is not the sharpest knife in the drawer...

Petals said...

Monty - phones on vibrate - emergency only, LOL

monty924 said...

Lol, yeah I remember that, but I meant why didn't Reynold look for it after Malcolm was voted off. Malcolm said (on the After Show) that Reynold knew where it was hidden. He told him, so why wouldn't he look for it?

Joe in NY said...

There is very little bitterness so far this season. It'll be interesting to see if the jury actually rewards the players rather than punishing them.

Petals said...

Maybe Andrea beat him to it?

Petals said...

Maybe Andrea beat him to it?

Petals said...

drink!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Oooooh, Erik, you are STILL so naive. He just doesn't learn.

monty924 said...

I know... it was my baby brother, and you never know what kind of drama he's calling with. I'll ignore the next time, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Jeff sure likes to 'stir the pot'!

Petals said...

(I was ribbin you - of course answer when it is family) :)

Joe in NY said...

They are awfully honest.

Petals said...

DRINK!!!!

monty924 said...

Cochran is so cool at tribal councils.

SueGee said...

arrrggghhh lost my last comment

Hi to everyone but I can't stay. Will think of you as I watch later tonight!

SueGee on the left coast

Petals said...

Ed - yes he does - I love it!

Petals said...

hey SueG!

Nickelpeed said...

Did they show Andrea finding the idol?

Joe in NY said...

LOL. I wonder if that was real or just the edit. I mean if I'm Andrea and everyone's looking at me, I would play the Idol. LOL

monty924 said...

Stupid, stupid, stupid!!! Blindside BABY!

Joe in NY said...

oh, love that!!!

Joe in NY said...

She took that pretty well. I like the look on Eddie's face. Now he really is totally alone.

Petals said...

love it!!!!!!!

suck it, BIOTCH!

Ed in Ohio said...

Surprise!!

Nickelpeed said...

I LOVE THIS!!!!

YES!!!!

Petals said...

Cockiness bought her walking papers!

Becky said...

Love, love, love it!

monty924 said...

Penny, Eric found it and gave it to Andrea.

Nickelpeed said...

Should she be THAT surprised? Heeeeheeeeeheeeeeee

Petals said...

CHEERS to the tribe - great blindside!!

Joe in NY said...

I still think they are going to screw themselves at some point with all this vote splitting. I mean, if Eric had jumped, Brenda would have gone home and Andrea would be in charge of the game. Why they insist on playing it that close baffles me. Are they that paranoid about the HII?

Becky said...

Erick found the idol and GAVE it to Andrea!

Nickelpeed said...

Ahhhh. I didn't see that he found it and gave it to Erik. Wow, he really has not learned, has he?

monty924 said...

They were all looking for it, but Eric found it and just handed it over. He has a habit of doing that, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Uno Amigo still alive!

Becky said...

Joe, I am sure they did a little editing.

Petals said...

When Brenda smiled, I knew.


Hey - everyone East of KMCO - there is a cold front moving, strong winds, a 40-degree temp drop in 6 hours.

Joe in NY said...

Personally, I think Andrea is far more deserving of player of the year than Malcolm. She totally managed/ran Philip and pretty much ran the whole tribe for the first 31 days. Based on her last appearance, that also makes her the Most Improved Player.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree with you Joe. These splits will hurt them. Maybe now that Andrea is gone, they will not split the votes any more. I do believe the next one gone will be Eddie, though.

monty924 said...

Joe, I've thought a lot about that too. I think it's the Boston Rob influence. It wasn't just Phillip who played with him. Andrea did too.

Joe in NY said...

You folks who like to drink when the girls cry are going to be hammered next week. LOL

Becky said...

I will see you guys Sunday. Thanks, Jackie.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no, tears...

Thank you for hosting, Jackie. Appreciate it.

See everyone Sunday.

monty924 said...

True, Joe but I'm still voting for Malcolm... my pool boy :)))

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, everybody!

monty924 said...

Hey, we will have lots of drinking opportunities next week. Sad, I might not make it to the party. Going to try, but we have plans on Wednesday night.

Everyone have a great week and will see you all soon.

Thanks again Jackie!

Nickelpeed said...

I also think Cochran has played a really good game. Maybe he should win the player of the game.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Lifeguard Laurie. Looks like we're all down to one or none. I'm rooting for Cochran even though I have the lone Amigo left.
