Survivor: Blood vs.Water - September 25 Blog Party

Before we get into the show, I noticed some people are asking about the pool for The Amazing Race. I haven't heard from Margo yet, so I'm uncertain if she's going to be doing it this season. I should know before the premiere. I hope so, anyway!

Speaking of pools, here's our latest pool standings here on Survivor by that rockin' Lifeguard Laurie:

Galang Team
ARAS -- Donna in FL, MikesGirl
COLTON -- Gaylos, Nickelpeed
GERVASE -- Jackie, Pam in NJ
KAT -- Jig, Petals
LAURA B -- Buzzmaan, Laurie, SueGee
LAURA M -- AlbGlinka, JOKATS, rbennie
MONICA -- Becky, KayBeeRN, Russ
TINA -- Cheryl in NC, Lynn1, Terry in TX
TYSON -- Delee, meb

Tadhana
BRAD -- Brent McKee, Kelly D. Sharon N.
CALEB -- Glenn, ORKMommy
CIERA -- Andrea J, Karen in CA, Rochelle
HAYDEN -- Joanie, Quixotic Elf
JOHN -- Ed in Ohio, Nana in the NW
KATIE -- David, Margo, Zoetawny
RACHEL -- Donna in AL, Merrilee
VYTAS -- Donna NY, ML

Redemption Island
CANDICE -- Dusty, Monty924
MARISSA -- Jennas Mom, PDX Granny
RUPERT -- Brian, Kelsey NY, Sharon S.

*********************************************

As tonight's show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest! But the real party (and reactions!) is in the comments area ... come join us!

Survivor fans ready?

Ah, long recap, but the Redemption Island duel is upon us now. The three compete stacking spools on a rack thingee. Gervase turned down a chance to take Marissa's spot. Winner chooses to give a clue to a hidden idol to anyone of their choosing. Loser is out for good. Top two stay to duel again for the return. Candice is first done! Marissa stays alive! Rupert is gonzo! He;s the first out this season! Candice gives her husband John the hidden idol clue.

Colton is already the way he was on his season. Ick.

Immunity Challenge -- Pushing a tribe member in a barrel, collecting balls, then they play a skee-ball kind of game for the win. Reward is fishing equipment. Gervase wins it for the returning players, second win in a row. He tells them it's for Marissa. (Yeah, like he really cares.)

Because John had the idol clue and balked about voting out Rachel as his broliance wanted him to do ... he may be up for a blindside. Eep.

Tribal council time. Lots of layers to the voting this year. The person they vote out can be replaced with the loved one, etc.

The tally -- John, John, Ciera, Rachel, Rachel, Rachel, Rachel.

Welp, the blindside of John didn't work. They're sending Rachel to Redemption Island where it's possible that Tyson might take her place.

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie! I'm chillin' in the deep in sipping a glass of wine tonight, and my family better not bother me, LOL!

lynn1 said...

Hi Jackie & Becky

Rochelle said...

Hello All - This snuck up on me!

lynn1 said...

Hi Monty

lynn1 said...

Hi Rochelle

monty924 said...

My girl better win on RI, or I'll be a free agent as far as who I'm rooting for.

monty924 said...

Hey Becky, Lynn and Rochelle :)

Becky said...

Hey, Monty, Lynn and Rochelle.

Petals said...

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


Hey everyone

Nickelpeed said...

Hey everyone....let's play the game!!!

Thank you for hosting us, Jackie, appreciate it.

lynn1 said...

Hi Petals

Petals said...

Happy belated Birthday to Monty (I brought some Birthday Cake vodka)

Rochelle said...

Sorry to ask such a stoopid question - when did Survivor start? What week is this?

Rochelle said...

Happy B-day Monty!

Petals said...

this is just Ep 2, Rochelle

lynn1 said...

Rochelle this is the 2nd week

Rochelle said...

Colton!

Becky said...

Happy BD, Monty. Last Wed. was the first show.

Petals said...

I'm flying my Colton is a Turd flag

Nickelpeed said...

Ugh, he's back to his old self. Yay - not!

lynn1 said...

Colton is back at it

Becky said...

I apologize, but Colton is already on my last nerve.

lynn1 said...

Penny how are you feeling?

Nickelpeed said...

Colton - you have to be a unit to win. You are a turd bag.

Becky said...

Instead of a drinking "word" it should be every time Colton opens his mouth!

Rochelle said...

Thanks peeps. I have never missed a season, but for the last two, I somehow lost track of the calendar... So what are we eating while commercials are on?

I brought pumpkin spice cake with buttercream icing....

Andrea Johnson said...

Hello all! Missed you guys. New work schedule sucks eggs!!!

Becky said...

Yeah, Penny, how did the surgery go? Or was that Petals. Sorry, my mind is really going -- fast.

lynn1 said...

I have Italian sausage and peppers with penne pasta

monty924 said...

Ah, B-day Cake Vodka sounds heavenly, lol. Thanks for the B-day wishes.

I'm going to fly the Colton is a turd flag, too. He gets my goat.

Andrea Johnson said...

And happy bd Monty!

Becky said...

I brought popcorn so we can throw it at anyone who hacks us off!

monty924 said...

Japanese proverb...
Give a man a fish, feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.

TRUE

lynn1 said...

Happy Birthday Monty

Petals said...

Not me. No surgery (but I was sorry to hear about your loss, Becky *hugs*)

Andrea Johnson said...

What's with Ciera's posture?

Petals said...

Becky, Colton will be covered in popcorn, LOL

monty924 said...

Go Candice!

monty924 said...

Gervase can thank himself for that

Nickelpeed said...

They are showing a lot of John, maybe too much...he could be next voted off. Uhmmm

Nickelpeed said...

Happy Birthday, Monty.

Petals said...

I predict Trollton will not last 3wks.


C'MON RUPERT! You can do this!

Petals said...

OK, Marissa is a troublemaker. @@

Nickelpeed said...

Well, Monty, I have Colton, so I know I'll lose my pool pick very soon, if he keeps ups his antics. LOL

Petals said...

So Marissa wont win this, it is between the blonde & Rupert. GO RUPERT, concentrate man!

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Did I hear someone say buttered popcorn? Yes please!!

Nickelpeed said...

That's not a good thing. If they were smart, they'd keep it for themselves or give it to their team because if they give it to a loved one, that person is a target.

monty924 said...

Candice just keep your cool... good girl

Joanie said...

Penny how did your surgery go?

Monty happy belated birthday, when was it, mine was Monday?

monty924 said...

This is where experience with the nerves helps.

Petals said...

oh no :(

monty924 said...

Well, except for Rupert LOL

Rochelle said...

Joanie - your b-day was Monday?
If so happy b-day WEEK!

Petals said...

Happy belated birthday joanie

Petals said...

big bummer.

monty924 said...

Rupert has had enough chances at the game, but I still loved him in other seasons.

Rochelle said...

Rupert is looking pretty studly. I though his wife was a blonde. I REGRET that he is the first one out. boo

JonMD1267 said...

He is HORRIBLE at these games lol

Rochelle said...

that is going to drop ratings right there, that Rupert is gone. Fan fave. Hope his wife kicks ASS

Joanie said...

Rochelle yes it was, half a century.

Nickelpeed said...

Not surprised. Good bye, Rupert. I really would have loved to see him go further. Mistake to go to Redemption, but kudos for a classy exit.

Okay, she just ended his stay with his tribe.

monty924 said...

Joanie, happy belated birthday. Mine was yesterday. CHEERS

Delee said...

Almost forgot it was on tonight!
Sad that Rupert is gone already.

lynn1 said...

Joanie hope you had a happy Birthday

Rochelle said...

Monty - you crack me up! Loved this:

I'm going to fly the Colton is a turd flag, too. He gets my goat.

Joanie said...

Thanks Monty.

lynn1 said...

seems like a lot of folks on this blog have Sept. Birthdays!

Nickelpeed said...

She might have thought it was a good move for John, but, I don't know, it could have hurt him.

Rochelle said...

Becky - Pass the popcorn. I'll save it to throw.

monty924 said...

Lol @ Rochelle. I heard my mother and grandmother use that a million times. :))

Nickelpeed said...

Uh oh, it looks like Hayden may be limping. Things are awfully quiet right now. 3 of the men are pretty aggressive, so that might be good for him. Go Hayden. LOL

Becky said...

My cookies are disabled! I don't want to keep trying to figure out how to turn them back on, so I will just sign my name.

Throwing popcorn at Colton.

Nickelpeed said...

He sure hasn't changed his stripes, has he. LOL

Rochelle said...

Throwing popcorn at Colton

Rochelle said...

he's doing the finger wag, that Colton

Andrea Johnson said...

Bless Tina's heart!

Petals said...

How can anyone stomach him? Ugh. He is such a little biotch. There is no other word, sorry.

Nickelpeed said...

I can not stand this man. Drama, drama, drama. He is trying to do what he did the last time. They need to get rid of him...fast.

Nickelpeed said...

Didn't take him very long, did it?

JonMD1267 said...

Drama Rama ha

Rochelle said...

But Nickelpeed, do you think they WILL get rid of him? They all have had to have seen and studied each other's past games by now...

Petals said...

Does he think he is witty? Yikes, what a turd.

lynn1 said...

Colton is going to get hit up the side of the head with coconuts by his tribe mates

monty924 said...

You have to admit he gives us something to snark about! ;-)

JonMD1267 said...

lol

Lifeguard Laurie said...

I'm loving these comments. I can only imagine how annoying the turd sack is. None of us thought he had changed, did we? A zebra doesn't change his stripes.

Becky said...

A gay Russell Hantz. ROFLMAO

lynn1 said...

a gay Russell Hantz ! LOL

Petals said...

Trollton needs to go. He sure doesn't know how to play.

Rochelle said...

There we go - "I don't want to play with Colton"
It would be nice to watch them play smart not snark

Nickelpeed said...

Can he say that? A Gay Russell Hantz? LMAO

Petals said...

Love it! Monty, they are flying the same flag as are we! LOL\


Joanie, I brought Birthday Cake vodka

Petals said...

Put Troll in the barrel!

monty924 said...

I wish this would work on here:

(Y)

Hehehehe

Rochelle said...

Missed the first ep. Has Kat grown up (wised up) at all?

Petals said...

Monty, is that an ...?

lynn1 said...

colton isn't nearly as strategic s Russell was

monty924 said...

Thumbs up! :))

Petals said...

Troll's tribe should throw it, to get rid of him

Nickelpeed said...

Go Hayden!!!!

Petals said...

C'mon Hayden!

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Blogger really needs "Like" buttons!

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it!!!! Poor Hayden. :-(

Petals said...

dang it. Now Troll stays another day

Petals said...

Hi Laurie! :)

Becky said...

Darn, that means Colton will be here next week. Oh, wait, we have another chance to drink ourselves silly and toss popcorn again.

Rochelle said...

I know, Lifeguard. I am so used to clicking Likes to virtually nod and smile at comments, I find myself looking to do it here... or even in e-mail threads.

Nickelpeed said...

Ugh on Colton.

Who do you think they'll get rid of? One of the girls?

Petals said...

Lynn - how 'bout that Tide? Scary starts, tho, huh?

Rochelle said...

Where does it work Monty? FB?

lynn1 said...

Petals it is hard to be a Tide fan and a Saints fan. If I make it through this year's football season without a major cardiac event I will be lucky

Becky said...

They wouldn't vote out Hayden would they?

tbc said...

What does Hayden see in Kat?

tbc

Becky said...

And yes, they will pick you gals off.

lynn1 said...

tbc , a cute girl who is not smarter than he is!

Nickelpeed said...

No, Tyson will not take her place. That is not Tyson. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Petals said...

I dont remember Kat from her season (early dimentia), was she mean? Is she stupid? I think she is a cute girl, but I dont know her personality.

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Don't they have a guy solidarity thing going on?

Rochelle said...

Keep looking for that idol boy

Petals said...

Hey Jackie there's your Mantis buddy.

monty924 said...

Kat was a loveable numb skull!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, it could be John?

Rochelle said...

A little bratty, very immature in her season. Grew a little on the show though. Wonder if she's blossomed a bit...

Petals said...

Thanks guys. Well, so far she is normal, so I'll wait & see. She is my pool chick

monty924 said...

Yes, Rochelle... (y) or (Y) is the same.

Nickelpeed said...

Would it be smart to vote out a guy?

Shut up Hayden

Becky said...

Petals, Kat was a lazy, piece of garbage during her season.

tbc said...

LOL, Becky! Put that way, it makes perfect sense.

tbc

tbc said...

Rupert before Colton! Long season ahead...

tbc

JonMD1267 said...

The were silly not to vote him out.

Rochelle said...

What did she do?

And I agree tbc

monty924 said...

Need to watch this one again, too. Family didn't leave me alone. UGH!

Well folks, will see you all next week.

Thanks again for the b-day wishes and everyone have a good week.

Nickelpeed said...

This will make Tyson even more determined.

Thanks for hosting Jackie.

Still thinking of you, Becky.

See everyone next Wednesday!

Joanie said...

Lynn, I've always blamed the mid to late September. Birthdays on Christmas and New Years.

Stormy said...

Well looks like all that energy Ruppard was saving being lazy did not pay off. Now if we could just get Garvase and Colton out we could enjoy this season. After Big Brother we need some pleasant people to pull for.
