Survivor: Caramoan - Season Finale and Reunion Show Blog Party

Survivor: Caramoan photo SCaramoanJackie_zpsf4f14b87.gif

Welp, this is it. We're down to five castaways and the promos hint that one will leave in a medical emergency. I've got different scenarios running through my head as I think of each one leaving. For some reason, I'm thinking it might be Sherri or Erik. But I could be totally off base there -- I have no spoilers info as I haven't searched any out this season.

We all know that things will get shaken up if Eddie wins Immunity. However, for a buff kind of dude, he hasn't really performed well during the challenges. I guess we'll see! As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page often to get the latest news.

But, as always, the real party is in the comments. Come join us! Bring snacks and beverages, too!

Oh my. I'm right about it being Erik. His head is spinning since leaving Tribal Council. The medic pulls him from the game -- dehydration and starvation. (Meanwhile I'm hearing ice cream truck music from outdoors which is way incongruous with what's happening on the show.)

Reward challenge has them balancing while building a house of cards. The winner gets an advantage in the final immunity challenge. Cochran wins the advantage in the final immunity challenge! Woohoo!

Dawn, of course, is freaking. While she can do well in challenges, she's a basket case so often at other times that it makes her her own worst enemy. Cochran is tired of her.

Rites of passage. I wonder how they'll come of with good words about Brandon. Okay, he's still delusional and claiming he was the author of his own elimination. While he was, it was a stupid story indeed!

The final Immunity Challenge has them racing up a tower, getting bags of puzzle pieces in multiple trips and completing a puzzle. Cochran's advantage is that he doesn't have to untie his bags while the others have to untie the three bags. Okay.

Cochran is screwing up his advantage and Dawn is in the lead. Now he's catching up. Eddie is in last place. Cochran steams ahead ... COCHRAN WINS FINAL IMMUNITY!

He's planning on bringing Sherri to the end because he's sure he can beat her. He's in a quandary over the other two. Time to vote!

The tally -- Dawn, Eddie, Eddie, Eddie. The final three are Cochran, Sherri and Dawn.

The three get to plead their cases in front of the jury. Dawn is feeling humble and tells how hard the game was for her. She explains her strategy and is proud of her game. Sherri tells about her marriage, children and her successful business. She thinks she became very pliable and worked to get in with everyone. Cochran talks of half his life following the show and his obsession with it. He thinks his timing has been right and wants to prove why he's played the best game.

Jury time ...

Malcolm -- Not bitter, no question for Sherri. His vote is between the other two. Dawn -- Best friend, you played cold-blooded, you have to own it, can't be warm mom, fight for it. Cochran -- What quality do you have that I don't have? Cochran says his insecurity had him taking out people with plans.

Eddie -- Sherri, willing to admit carried to final 3? Nope! Dawn -- Strong claims, weaker than others, daily routine. She's taking Malcolm's advice. Cochran -- where are you going from here? He'll be at the bar with them!

Phillip -- Congrats to all. Sherri, strategic join with favorites, he removes her from StealthRUs. Dawn -- talks of his intolerance with her crying and excuses. He won't cast a vote. Cochran -- played a strategic game, enjoyed it, class act.

Erik -- Dawn - Thought we shared something, you crushed it with vote for Brenda. She once again takes Malcolm's advice. Sherri - Do you understand why you're here? He says she was a seashell on the beach and did nothing.

Mike -- Dawn and Cochran -- you were playing the same game. Dawn, explain why Cochran isn't getting called the villain you are. She doesn't think Cochran would still be there without her. Cochran admits he's happy people are lighting into Dawn. Talks of her paranoia. He thinks he became her therapist.

Reynold -- Dawn - Disliked from day one, complete fraud. Asks her what she thinks about him. 

Andrea -- Not bitter. Grateful even with the blindside. Cochran - Choose an animal he played like. Chameleon. Dawn - Proud of you, strategic game and understands where she's coming from.

Brenda -- Cochran - the family visit, took something from me. He talks of separating game and emotion. Took out a threat to his game. Dawn -- Strong bond I thought we had, pain. She talks about the lost partial plate bit. Would she have quit w/o teeth? No. She tells her to take out her teeth. Dawn refuses, then does it. Brenda said she wanted her to feel the heartbreak.

The voting commences. Phillip votes Cochran and is proud of him, did right by fans and favorites. Eddie wrote down a name he didn't think he'd write tonight, but I didn't see it.

It's off to California! I miss the cheesy jetskis and stuff.

The tally: Cochran, Cochran, Cochran, Cochran, Cochran.

COCHRAN WINS IT ALL!!! It apparently was unanimous as Jeff said Dawn got no votes.

Cochran is a hoot! And, though he just graduated with a law degree from Harvard, he'd like to write. I think he'd do well.

Brenda was via satellite as she's about to give birth any day. She forgave Dawn and all is peachy-keen once again.

Jeff gives a clue about where they're going next season. It looks like blood in water. Hmm. 

Cool ... Rudy and Richard Hatch are there!

Flashback to Borneo. Rudy is now 85! He looks good.

71% of the votes for fan favorite were for Malcolm and Brenda. Malcolm had 36% of those, narrowly beating out Brenda. He gets the 100 grand.

The new season new hint is Blood vs. Water. Okay.

Thank you everyone for taking part in the weekly parties this season! You make it all worthwhile!

Hey Jackie and All....

Wine for the occasion and stuffed mushrooms with honey mustard for dipping over at the bar.

~~~SPLASH~~~

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie! Happy Mother's Day, Jackie. Did Vincent give you some catnip as a gift?

Sharon S said...

Hi Jackie, and everyone who shows up. I'm so excited to see who wins.

I was thinking it might be Erik with the medical issue too. I had to talk myself out of searching for spoilers -- thank goodness tonight is finally here so I can't have to have that battle anymore!

Becky said...

Hey, Monty.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky, Hi Sharon

Sharon S said...

Wonder if Brandon has calmed down enough to come to the finale?!

Sharon S said...

Hi Monty and Becky

monty924 said...

Good question, Sharon. I wonder if he'll be a cocky little loser tonight?

monty924 said...

Looks like Erik

Becky said...

Hey, everyone who has arrived.

Petals said...

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

Happy mothers day!
Hey everyone
Oh Monty - is that Eddie & Boogie?

Sharon S said...

It is good they caught him when they did....

Petals said...

I love Eddie doing that.

monty924 said...

Way to go Eddie for calming Erik down. Btw, I have my two pool boys with me tonight ------->

Sharon S said...

So sad. :(

Petals said...

Noooooo - !! I wanted Erik to win it!

Becky said...

WOW! Sharon you were correct.

monty924 said...

LOL, Petals. Eddie and Malcolm - YUMMY

Becky said...

And Dawn cried. Pass the wine, please.

monty924 said...

Cheers to Erik! Drink up

Sharon S said...

I just had a feeling because of what was going on with him last week. I was hoping the feast that Brenda gave up would have been enough to get him back on track, but I guess it wasn't.

Petals said...

LOL Becky!
Needs a LOT of wine for Dawn crying.
I'm crying too.

Monty - I had to click to see it better.

Anonymous said...

I want anyone to win but Dawn

monty924 said...

So, are our drinking strategies the same for this week? Dawn crying, anyone saying finale, going to the end, final three???

Nickelpeed said...

~~~SPLASH~~~ Hi Jackie. Thank you for hosting.

Hi everyone. Are we ready for a long night??

I'm having problems posting. It keeps on giving me an error message when I try to post.

Becky said...

Let's drink to all of those Monty. Jackie will let us sleep on the floor if we can't drive home.

Nickelpeed said...

I wish Erik had left last week. Brenda could have stayed.

monty924 said...

Anon, I would agree but Dawn is the only other one left who has played strategically besides Cochran. I know that isn't popular, but it's the truth.

monty924 said...

Final Four DRINKING

monty924 said...

Go to the end... DRINKING

Becky said...

Don't the top four get $$? I think I remember that from the second show.

monty924 said...

Becky, I brought my sleeping bag ;-)

monty924 said...

Cool twist on a couple of old challenges.

Nickelpeed said...

Love this challenge.

I know Cochran shook hands with Eddie, but I do not see them keeping him at all.

Petals said...

WHo will win the Fan Fave, I wonder?

GO EDDIE

Sharon S said...

Anyone think the advantage would really help Sherri?

monty924 said...

Petals, I threw all of my votes to Malcolm for fan fav.

Becky said...

Monty, I agree with you that popular moves or not, Dawn has made moves this series.

monty924 said...

yay, Cochran!!!

Becky said...

YEAH, Cochran!

Nickelpeed said...

I really do not want Sherri to get anywhere. She's done absolutely nothing. Go Cochran and Eddie.

Petals said...

I voted Mal too, Monty.

Sharon S said...

I doubt she'd make good use of the advantage. I'm glad Cochran won it. Hope it doesn't make him overestimate his odds though. He did well with an advantage the last time he had it.

monty924 said...

Sherri has ZERO chance in winning this. She hasn't done anything besides tell the camera she is runnning the game. I doubt any of them at Ponderosa would buy that argument.

Nickelpeed said...

Woohoo! I can't believe I'm rooting for him this season. Wow. Well, there goes Eddie.

Becky said...

Eddie has a lot of friends on the jury. I don't think Cochran will keep him. It would be easier for him to win against Dawn and Sheri.

monty924 said...

Yay, Petals. He would have won it last season if it hadn't been for Lisa. I hope he wins it!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I voted for both Malcolm and Brenda. She really did well also. And, after they did what they did to her last week, I felt bad for her. LOL.

monty924 said...

Now I'm BB nostalgic. Happy it is starting a week sooner this season.

Nickelpeed said...

I cannot see them keeping Eddie, even though I like him much better than Sherri. But, Cochran, Dawn, and Sherri made a pact. I wish they had kept Sherri out, but she's done nothing, so she's a good one to take to the end.

Petals said...

I was sooo excited when I saw the BB promo

monty924 said...

That's DRINK worthy, isn't it?

Sharon S said...

Cochran has become a cold-hearted man.

Petals said...

Cochran is the expert, doesn't he know that she would use the mom card?
(he just heard me, and answered that question)

Becky said...

Oh, Cochran, don't be a fool. Take Dawn, Eddie will eat your lunch!

Sharon S said...

Someday I'm going to take one of my two personal days a day after a Survivor and drink with you guys. No way I can even have one drink and be able to teach the next day.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, Sherri is right about that about Dawn: crying, etc. However, I do not think Dawn has the advantage. I think she's irritate a lot of people with her tears.

Nickelpeed said...

Cochran has played this game smart this time. He can't possibly think taking Eddie would be better. Eddie has a more likable personality. IMO, if he took Eddie, HE would win. He's, unfortunately, got to get rid of him.

Petals said...

What the H? Black Sabbath & Eric Roberts on CSI?

Sharon S said...

I'm not sure Eddie would win over Cochran. Eddie would have Reynold's vote, and probably Andrea's, but who else?

monty924 said...

Ah, the 'Rights of Passage/Fallen Comrads' moment. It's always cheesy, but I like it :)))

Becky said...

Oh, darn. The Walk of Shame.

Petals said...

I hate Shamar

monty924 said...

Sharon, you could throw Malcolm and Brenda in there too!

Becky said...

Brandon is still Brandon!

Becky said...

I wonder if they show furnishes them with this crap they spout!

Sharon S said...

True -- that would do it for Eddie to win then. Cochran, if he has the chance, should take Dawn and Sherri.

monty924 said...

Washing my eyes out with bleach

DRINKING too

Petals said...

Sorry, FillUp. You are still the crazy guy!

monty924 said...

Forgot about Michael. He would probably vote for Eddie as well. Eddie could easily win this.

Petals said...

I would love to see Eddie win. I know you guys like Cochran, but I just haven't warmed to him.

Where is Joe?

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~~~

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mothers (furry children count)

Been eating and reading to catch up but I think I may never catch up on the drinking game!

SueGee on the left coast

Anonymous said...

anyone notice how they cut out any description by the castaways of julia

Jackie said...

Eddie's local to me. I usually cheer on the locals, but I'd like to see a Cochran win. I'd rather see Eddie win than either Sherri or Dawn.

monty924 said...

I'd love for Eddie to win and have bragging rights, but I've been rooting for Cochran just because he's that geek that you love to love. He's really come out of his shell this season and I find that refreshing. And, yes, where is Joe?

monty924 said...

And where is Ed from Ohio? Cochran is his pool boy.

Becky said...

If Cochran votes out Dawn, Eddie will have her vote.

monty924 said...

Yay, another slip-n-slide

Sharon S said...

He still has to run the stairs...won't get the breather while untying knots though.

Becky said...

It's a very good advantage.

Petals said...

Daaaaamn, really good advantage.

Becky said...

And Sherrie is doing what Sherrie always does. Not much!

monty924 said...

It's HUGE

monty924 said...

Sherri is useless

Petals said...

wow, so the advantage was for naught

Sharon S said...

Oh my...I hope Dawn doesn't win this!

Petals said...

aww, come on Ed!

monty924 said...

Come on Cochran

Petals said...

Glad Eddie has a sense of humor about it.

monty924 said...

Woohoo! The nerdy Cochran did it!!!

Becky said...

WTG Cochran.

Petals said...

Dawn is pretty sure she is solid. Hope she gets her ass burned like she burned Brenda.

monty924 said...

Dawn's crying -

DRINK UP

Petals said...

DRINK -

Sharon S said...

I loved how happy Eddie was when he got his first piece in.

Nickelpeed said...

I wish Dawn wasn't going to the final, but they will vote out Eddie. He is the biggest threat. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

I can't believe I forgot to say:

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOMS!!!

monty924 said...

Agree, Penny. Cochran, if he's smart will realize that Eddie probably has Reynold, Malcolm, Michael and Andrea. Throw in a possible Brenda and Cochran doesn't stand a chance against Eddie. Eddie hasn't really done anything in the game, and even stepped out of an immunity that he should have fought for over a donut, but you never know how a jury will vote.

monty924 said...

I love Cochran and his confessionals!!!

Sharon S said...

lonely at the top --- lol

monty924 said...

DRINKING

Petals said...

DRINK!!!

Becky said...

DRINK! I don't think that the Mother card will work.

monty924 said...

Awww, I LOVE EDDIE now! <3

Rochelle said...

ak I didn't realize it was finale night. Been watching since Cochran got the necklace. I HOPE HE WINS!!!
Hi everyone!

Petals said...

Now I am in love with Eddie. He is my soul mate: drinking & dogs. LMAO

Sharon S said...

I agree Monty -- that confessional made me want Eddie to get it - for a moment.

Petals said...

Hey Rochelle - (I'd forgotten, too)

Rochelle said...

Sherri - how is she there!

Becky said...

Monty, I think Eddie has Erick too.

Rochelle said...

hey Petals

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, you are your worst enemy and no, you shouldn't do well.

They will not keep Eddie. Cochran has played a very good, smart game.

Petals said...

FillUp always looks pissed. God gave him an angry face.

Jackie said...

It's gotten so Dawn's facial expressions irk me.

Petals said...

Eddie's not so stupid...

Nickelpeed said...

That was good, Eddie.

monty924 said...

Love Reynold's face right there. Sherri doesn't stand a chance, LOL

Rochelle said...

Agreed Nicklepeed. Hey Jackie. I too am irked

monty924 said...

Could go to a tie

Petals said...

I've been done with Dawn since she made brenda dive for her teeth.

Sharon S said...

So if Eddie and Sherri vote Dawn, and Dawn votes Eddie, Cochran might tie it by voting Eddie

Petals said...

I'd love to see Dawn burn.

Petals said...

:(

monty924 said...

Guess Sherri didn't want to go to the end with Eddie either

Rochelle said...

I think Cochran officially just won

Becky said...

That was a smart move. He is a good looking kid.

Nickelpeed said...

Sherri would not get one vote. If she does, it will be out of spike from someone.

monty924 said...

I would have loved to watch Dawn and Eddie try to build fire, LOL

Sharon S said...

Eddie seems to be a very realistic person. I'm starting to like him. Ironic.

Becky said...

Okay, who will vote for Sherri? I think Eddie, Brenda and Michael will go for her.

Becky said...

Maybe Fillup too.

Anonymous said...

Was she really that worried? You've got to be kidding? Really???

monty924 said...

Rochelle, I agree. Cochran has this in the bag. Now for the fun of the jury questions, lol!

Petals said...

I think Sherry will get no votes.

I like Eddie.

Nickelpeed said...

I really do not think Sherri will get a vote, but maybe they'll surprise me.

Eddie is so happy go lucky all the time.

monty924 said...

Becky, having watched the Ponderosa clips and the Survivor After Shows, I think Phillip/Fillup will vote Cochran.

Nickelpeed said...

Did I hear Cochran say Eddie was a chauvinist?

Petals said...

Yeah, it's hard not to like a guy who is so affable (and cute), who is also an EMT (a cute EMT)

Petals said...

Uhm, Sherry - YOU are a pawn.

Rochelle said...

aye yi Sherri

monty924 said...

Penny, remember when Cochran went on the award challenge with Reynold and Eddie? They tried to suck him into the 'bromance alliance'. He wasn't buying it. That's why he called him that.

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

Sherri is that perfect 'goat' that anyone would love to take to the end. NO CHANCE

Rochelle said...

omg Cochran do NOT cave now!!!

monty924 said...

Wonder if they will be cruel to Sherri?

Rochelle said...

I don't care how much Dawn cried and how odd some of her expressions are. She PLAYED

Ed in Ohio said...

Jumpin in late! Sunday evenings are real hard for me to log in (time/wise). But I didn't want to miss the finale. Anyway better late than never.

How in the heck is Sherri in the F3?????

monty924 said...

WTH, not the way to get votes! Sherri just shot herself in the foot, as if she had a chance anyway.

Petals said...

No, Sherry won't get any votes. They prolly won't even ask her any questions.

monty924 said...

Howdy Ed! Your boy Cochran is going to win this thing... :)))

Rochelle said...

HI Ed

Petals said...

^5 Monty.

(uhm, put down your horn, Cochran)

Ed in Ohio said...

I was pulling for Eddie but I still have my Pool Pick Cochran.

Rochelle said...

You can totally out charm and out strategize Cochran. Is this the humble approach?

Sharon S said...

Sherri did the dumbest thing by telling people she owns businesses and makes money.

Becky said...

I had forgotten that Monty.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All! To the Mom's.....

...Happy Mothers Day!!!

Petals said...

This is all just a formality, IMO. It is Cochran, all the way.

(the more they promo this stupid sci-fi flick, the more they turn me OFF of it)

monty924 said...

Ed, my last remaining pool boy went bye-bye at final four so I'm all in, all rooting for your boy. You missed the heavy drinking earlier, lol.

DRINK

Becky said...

I think Sherri blew it with the company information. I had based my projection on the number of people Dawn and Cochran had burned.

Jackie said...

I wonder if they will put Brandon in Hannibal Lechter get-up for the reunion show?

monty924 said...

LOL @ Jackie

Becky said...

Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms of human and furbabies.

Petals said...

LMAO Jackie !! HAHAHAHAHAHA

monty924 said...

LOVE you Malcolm....

Petals said...

*mwah* Malcolm!

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty I was pulling for the 2 pool boys in your avatar all along but fate has given me Cochran.

Petals said...

^5 again Monty *wink*

Sharon S said...

He looks so different! (Eddie)

monty924 said...

DRINKING
Jury laughs at Sherri, is that cruel?

Petals said...

the collective laughter at Sherry's answer - priceless.

Petals said...

^5 monty. Need more alcohol!

Ed in Ohio said...

Eddie cleaned up well!

monty924 said...

^5 Petals... great minds think alike.

monty924 said...

Pouring shots from the hidden liquor cabinet.

Sharon S said...

Brandon is so voting for Cochran. He keeps smiling and nodding at him.

Petals said...

@@ oh Geez...here we go.

Ed in Ohio said...

SAM!!!!!!!!!!!!

monty924 said...

S R US

DRINKING

Petals said...

DRINK

Sharon S said...

lol Sherri got kicked out of SRU

Ed in Ohio said...

Geez Cochran looks like a lock!

Sharon S said...

Yeah...they are almost voting instead of asking questions to decide.

Petals said...

Aww, Sherry. No.. No.

monty924 said...

DRINKING

BOTTOMS UP

Petals said...

WTG Erik.

Becky said...

OMGosh, Phillip kicked Sherri out of Stealth or us!

Nickelpeed said...

Wow...it looks like it's going to be an almost run away for Cochran.

They just do not like her.

Philip is so dang funny.

Petals said...

where is Brandon? I don't see him...

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, Sherri is a nasty person. She's very rude and mad because she is being targeted.

SueGee said...

Confused signals here - drinking for Dawn crying or Spys-R-Us??? Or both ROFL

(I heard Russell was banned from the finale)

SueGee

Petals said...

Love Reynold! LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I don't think Brandon made the jury. He went out just before the jury.

Sharon S said...

Brandon isn't on jury -- he left earlier than that. He'll be on in the next hour..maybe.

Rochelle said...

dawn is holding her own though

Petals said...

I'll tell you: Reynold - you're HOT

Becky said...

The jury is having fun.

monty924 said...

This jury is a HOOT

CHEERS

Petals said...

This is a great "tribal", because the winner has already been decided.

Nickelpeed said...

He's definitely a salesman. He's got the salesman attitude.
