Survivor: Blood vs. Water - October 16 Blog Party


Good evening, Survivor fans! The promos for tonight's show are hinting quite blatantly at yet another blindside. It brings to mind last week's show in which it seems like Caleb all of a sudden thinks he's in charge after Brad's ouster. While I so didn't want another season of Colton (and got my wish), as of this point, I've kind of liked Caleb. Hmm ... wonder if the blindside will be him.

How's the swimming, you ask? Well, the water's just fine. For some of us, that is. Here are the latest standings from the Super Soaker LifeGuard Laurie:

*********************************
As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh this page to get the latest! But, as you know, the real party is in the comments -- come join in on the fun!

Redemption Island Duel Time!
They have to build a bridge with planks, then un-build it and solve the puzzle with the planks. John wins! Brad comes in second. Candice is out of the game. He once again gives Monica the clue to the hidden idol. She once again tosses it in the fire.

Ew. They really don't need to show us disgusting wounds and toenails falling off. Ew.

Time for the Immunity Challenge!
Race down a slide, grab a ring, toss on a post, get a point for the tribe. Reward is steak, vegetables, spices and a wok ... or fishing gear.

OH MY GOSH! Tadhana won a challenge! About time! They chose the steak, possibly not the best decision as they could use the fishing gear for the rest of the game.

Aras would like Laura M. to be the vote as she might knock Brad out of Redemption Island and thus become a better ally for their own game.

The tally: Laura B, Laura M, Laura M, Laura M, Laura M. She's blindsided and headed to Redemption Island.

Ah, looks like Jeff is mixing things up with the tribes at the next Redemption Duel. Hmm ...

Hi Jackie and everyone

Petals said...

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

Hey everyone!
I have little pigs in little blankets and mini quiche (wild mushroom, spinach,and 3-cheese)

MMmmmmmm

I miss you guys.

Petals said...

Hey Joe, how's your girl?

lynn1 said...

I have some buttered popcorn

monty924 said...

Hey Joe, Lynn, Petals...

Great food tonight :)))

Petals said...

Good news? YAY!

Becky said...

I am getting another beagle! She is a gift from a breeder that I did a favor for several years ago. "Gidget" is a 13", six year old girl.

lynn1 said...

Petals I love quiche!

monty924 said...

What's our drinking word tonight?

Petals said...

Oh, and I have the cheapest wine ever:
Naked Grape Chardonnay. Screw top!

(I got 3 bottles for $10, LOL)

Jackie said...

Hi, all! And congratulations on the new member of your family, Becky!

Becky said...

I have no idea for a word. Brad -- or "double cross".

monty924 said...

Petals, my favorite is Sutter Home Riesling and it's also screw top, LOL!!!

Becky said...

Joe, how is your baby? Petals, if it is like when Colton talking was the word the wine will taste like top vintage.

David said...

Brought some very, very local hot salsa and some chips. Make you sweat hot. Dig in.

Aaaaa need to jump in the pool.

~~~~ splash~~~~~

Whew, much better. Watch the steam rising from the pool.

Jackie said...

Brad would probably be a good word. I'm sure they're going to keep talking about him!

monty924 said...

Aww, Becky. Great news on you new beagle!

Becky said...

I am more of a beer person myself. I really drink very little. Usually just when we have a family gathering or on occasion when we take one out to drink with Momma. She doesn't know we give her N/A.

Petals said...

cheesefest

Petals said...

Becky, what is the news?

Nickelpeed said...

Hey everyone! I forgot I rewound my DVR and didn't realize it was after 8!!

Here we go!

monty924 said...

LOL @ Becky! I'm a beer person (heritage) and wine. My mother never got the wine thing either, but my grandpa made the best homemade wine EVER :)))

monty924 said...

Crap, BRAD is making me DRINK too much ;-)

Nickelpeed said...

Yay for Becky!!! Can't wait to see pictures of her!!! So happy for you!!

monty924 said...

DRINK again

monty924 said...

BRAD... bad word. I can't keep up and keep my glass full :(((

Becky said...

I am not enamored with Candace.

monty924 said...

Well, my girl is gone. Sigh! Dusty, you and I are free to root for anyone now.

Becky said...

So, Brad it is.

Becky said...

Petals, scroll up and you will see my news.

monty924 said...

No, I opt for another word... I'm allsready sllurrrin my wurds

Anonymous said...

go red sox. this for you andy

Becky said...

Candace and her husband are both doctors, so they will make the $$ after they pay off their school bills -- if they have any.

Becky said...

Monty, I almost spit water on my keyboard.

monty924 said...

Crap... DRINKING

lynn1 said...

Anon 8:21 yay Red Sox

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Life guard is here!! I was outside enjoying the last of a warm fall day in San Diego.

Nickelpeed said...

I was not a Candace fan, either. Glad she's gone.

Becky said...

Yuk, the flies on the sores is awful.

Tina sure has aged over the years.

Nickelpeed said...

Tadhana needs to pick up their game. They can't keep losing. They need to win this next challenge.

Petals said...

Oh GROSS!

OMG, I've never heard of that disease. This is a first, yeah? Potentially very dangerous, it could get gangrenous, right?

Icky-poo

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Tina has aged....then I look in the mirror....lol...it's been a long time since Australian Outback and the All Stars, hasn't it?

Becky said...

I think the blindside of (WORD) has gone to Caleb's head.

Petals said...

Oh, just saw!!

AWWWWW! Congrats! Gidget, what an adorable name.

So excited & happy for you :)

*cheers to Gidget*

Jackie said...

Laurie - Gorgeous day here today, too!

monty924 said...

I missed that??? What disease?

Nickelpeed said...

Don't get too cocky...Caleb. Be very, very careful

Becky said...

Nice day here. We had a cool front so it was in the low 80's today.

monty924 said...

Hi Laurie :)))

Nickelpeed said...

I'm hoping the low playing of Hayden means he's not a target and stays for awhile.

Becky, when do you get Gidget? Love that name!

Becky said...

Penny, I "ain't no spring chicken" myself. I probably look older than dirt to a lot of people.

monty924 said...

David, that is some wicked salsa... whew!

Jackie said...

For a moment I thought Penny was telling me not to get too cocky over the glorious weather!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, I don't think so, Becky. You are in very good shape and really do look great!

Becky said...

Her name was Bridget, but she looks more like a Gidget. She will be flown in next week.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, you are so funny! Hey, Jackie, did you tell the group about Entertainment Weekly yet????

monty924 said...

Awesomeness... love the slip-n-slide challenges!

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, come on Tahana. You need to win one.

Becky said...

Starting off the same as every week.

Nickelpeed said...

I can't help but root for Tahana because they really need to win one at least.

monty924 said...

Yes, we should all congratulate Jackie on the EW opportunity. Sweet that her blog/this blog was recognized and will land her another writing job. KUDOS Jackie :)))

Nickelpeed said...

I love slides like this. Problem is, it will give you wedgies. LOL

Becky said...

Boy, the country boy must play horseshoes.

monty924 said...

This will be interesting if the vets have to vote someone out tonight.

Petals said...

homina homina

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Hayden. Come on.

Take your time....

monty924 said...

GREAT!!!

Nickelpeed said...

YES! Finally! They really needed this.

Petals said...

YAY! About time!

Becky said...

WOW! WTG Hayden. Let's hope the fools pick the fishing stuff.

David said...

Congrats Jackie. ;-) Glad to hear you are getting some recognition for what we already know.

Becky said...

See why I called them fools? I knew that was what they would do.

Joe in NY said...

Gervase continues to be useless. LOL.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree with you Petals...Homina, homina....so glad he hooked it this time!

lynn1 said...

I'm guessing Rupert's wife, Laura will go

Becky said...

Okay, Jackie. Spill the beans. What about E-W?

monty924 said...

Not sure about that decision, but I understand how starved they must feel at that moment.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know, Becky, I think I would have picked the steak also. They really need the protein.

I know it's a one time meal and the fishing gear could get them more food, but I don't even know if they'd use it.

Joe in NY said...

Congratulations on the new dog, Becky! (sorry, just catching up on comments)

monty924 said...

Lynn, that's a good guess, but some of the vets already don't like each other. This will be interesting.

Petals said...

Monty - I think it is Tina's daughter - she has some weird disease on her feet, and her toenails are falling-off. She said the name, which I didn't catch. Her toes are bright red, the nails are yellow-grey. And falling off. ICK!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals,

Keira is doing better. Fingers crossed that our troubles are behind us. Although she had me up half the night. I was afraid she was bloating. Turned out to be just my paranoia.

Jackie said...

Thanks. The Entertainment Weekly thing is still in the planning stages. Knowing corporate America, it might be a while before it's up and running.

Nickelpeed said...

I think it will either be Kat or Laura, Rupert's wife.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, all I can say, Jackie, is you deserve the recognition. I remember you from the AOL boards. You've been doing stuff like this for years!!!

monty924 said...

Thanks, Petals. I always have to watch the show again to catch what I miss.

Petals said...

LOL, accommodate the conversation of the person on the bottom?

Nickelpeed said...

Oh great, starting something to get her going. This will get Kat really on the edge.

Becky said...

I think Laura B will go.

Joe in NY said...

okay, so it's NOT Laura. LOL

Petals said...

Gary & I are adding coconut water to our diet. It is supposed to be so healthy, very hydrating, etc.
We are aware of the inconvenient side effects, but meh...the pros outweigh the cons.

Joe in NY said...

Seriously, you are sending Laura to Redemption to knock out Brad?!?!? Am I missing her golden lasso and invisible plane?

Becky said...

ROFLOL Joe. Right!

monty924 said...

They should send Monica

lynn1 said...

Laura B has a set of Eyebrows doesn't she

Joe in NY said...

no one bothered to mention that previous finalists have NOT felt the sting either. LOL

Becky said...

Kat, stop rolling your eyes. Wasn't Kat the one who said "I love a blindside" -- and was voted out that night?

Petals said...

Joe, I know - Gervase. Forgot about his being "about as useful as teats on a boar", (as Gary would say

Nickelpeed said...

So, they voted her off because they think she can beat Brad?

Petals said...

who is Laura M again?

monty924 said...

Becky, YEP!

monty924 said...

BLINDSIDE

DRINKING

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting.

See everyone Sunday.

Jackie said...

Ciera's mother, Petals. I only vaguely remember her from her original season.

Becky said...

Monty, Brad would toss Monica aside just like he did the first rattle out of the box..

Nickelpeed said...

Isn't Laura M's daughter Cierra?

Petals said...

Thanks Jackie (of course I'd forgotten)

Nickelpeed said...

Oh gosh, a switch up??? Yikes? I wonder who is going on who's tribe?

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

Well, there you go. Laura will probably do well at RI. I would have sent Monica to break up her and Brad, but I'm not playing the game. :)))

Thanks Jackie.

Becky said...

So, Jackie, when do you start your new writing gig? Will come back later and look for your reply.

Thank you so much for hosting.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. nite everyone

Jackie said...

All is still in the planning stages, Becky.

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, I do not think she knows yet. Hopefully, they'll get back to her soon!!!

AlbGlinka said...

Jackie: you totally deserve any EW gigs that come your way!!! A big congrats! Hope it all works out well for you-- your style of humor is a great match with theirs.

Laura M. is my pool pick and only distinguished herself last night as a Cougar with less than perfect social skills! (priding herself as a seductive masseuse!)
