Survivor: Blood vs. Water - October 2 Blog Party


Guess what day it is! Why, it's Survivor day, silly camel! Maybe tonight we'll see Colton (who should never darken my silver screen again) quit ... once again. As the show airs here, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Y'all know the real party is in the comments, right?

A few things before we get started:
  • If you want in on the blog pool for The Amazing Race run by the Amazing Margo, you need to go to this post to sign up. The deadline is Friday, midnight ET.

    Survivor fans ready?

    Redemption Island time. Tyson realizes Rachel was ousted in the hopes of getting him to take her place. He's staying with his tribe. Colton's crying (AGAIN) and says he doesn't want to be there any longer.

    I say, don't let the palm frond hit you on the way out, Colton.

    Ah, Jeff brought up that his last exit was faked! He fusses more and then quits. He then runs to Caleb and cries. Caleb stays! Cool. I have no issues with Caleb other than his weird affection for Colton.

    The duel is a dominoes type challenge. Candice wins! Marissa comes in second. Rachel (Tyson's gal) is sent packing. Candice give John a second clue to the hidden idol.

    John decided to share the idol clues with Brad. But Brad isn't sure that John really trusts him or, for that matter, that he might not really trust John.

    The Immunity Challenge has them dueling their loved ones a pair at a time on a platform on the water. The reward is either comfort (mosquito net, etc.) or fishing gear.

    Galang wins Immunity once again. They get the comfort items as they already won fishing gear.

    Brad, worried that John will go with Candice after the merge instead of him, wants to break up the Five Guys (no burgers and fries) alliance and blindside John. The guys are suspicious and think they should vote out Brad. Brad told them the clues to the idol.

    Tribal Council time -- the tally --
    Cierra, John, John, John, John. John goes to Redemption Island. Thanks, Candice!

    Hi Jackie. I have beer battered and deep fried pretzels with honey mustard and a tub of beer. Who want's one?

    Becky said...

    Hey, Jackie. We (DH) and I have still not been able to reinstall my cookies.

    Thee and me, both of us hope Colton quits.

    Becky said...

    Hey, Monty. I brought some dips and chips to share.

    monty924 said...

    Hey Becky.

    monty924 said...

    Tyson, always the mouth of the tribe.

    monty924 said...

    I'm DRINKING to Colton's tears...

    CHUG A LUG

    Becky said...

    Okay, every time Colton opens his mouth DRINK!

    SueGee said...

    ~~~SPLASH~~~

    Hiya everyone!! I'm not sure about the pretzels - but cold beer is appreciated!!

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    Joe in NY said...

    Sorry to say, but I prefer Evil Colton. Everytime Whiney Colton comes out, it just kills my mood!

    Becky said...

    At least Tyson asked Rachael what did she want him to do.

    Jackie said...

    Becky - You need to check your security settings. You probably somehow blocked cookies. Or, your anti-virus program did.

    Becky said...

    Hey Sue and Joe. How is your puppy, Joe.

    SueGee said...

    Real tears from Colton? Time to drink up!!

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    SueGee said...

    I was thinking along those lines too Jackie. Becky - what browser are you using?

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    Becky said...

    Jackie, it was working fine in the last Survivor. Then all of a sudden it was blocked.

    lynn1 said...

    I'm late but I am here

    Joe in NY said...

    Wow! He quit in One World!!!

    monty924 said...

    Hi SueGee, Joe and Lynn. Well there goes Colton... what a loser!

    lynn1 said...

    He is a real zero

    Becky said...

    What a jerk!

    monty924 said...

    There goes the fun in snarking about Colton this season. UGH

    SueGee said...

    Now he will throw a fit until his bf joins him

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    Joe in NY said...

    Hi Becky. She's better, thanks for asking. Ran her to Emergency on Saturday. There was actually fluid pouring out of the incision. Turns out it was just some harmless (but scary looking) swelling.

    Stitches came out today and rehab begins tomorrow...again.

    Jackie said...

    Becky - An anti-virus program works in the background and could have done it or you might have hit something by mistake.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Hi everyone!! Couldn't get on line.

    Boy, Colton - what a wuss.

    monty924 said...

    SueGee, the beer battered pretzels are awesome. The soft ones... they are YUMMY!

    monty924 said...

    Good to hear Joe.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Poor Keira, Joe. Hope she feels better soon.

    SueGee said...

    That sounds interesting Monty LOL Like the deep fried Twinkies

    SueGee

    Nickelpeed said...

    Candace was good at this.

    OMGosh. This is going to really put a fire under Tyson.

    SueGee said...

    I'm going to be popping in and out tonight - I have some green chile pork enchiladas in the oven right now and the smell is drawing me in there LOL Anyone want a plate?

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    David said...

    Colton quit? Woot, can't wait to see it. And Hiya's everyone ;-)

    monty924 said...

    My girl's still in there... whew

    Nickelpeed said...

    Boy, getting rid of her didn't do anything for the tribe, did it? She was a strong player. Now the team has a couple of weak players.

    Becky said...

    I sign on to my blog Google account. Is that what you mean?

    lynn1 said...

    Joe hope all goes well with Keira's rehab

    Nickelpeed said...

    Well mine's out - Colton is such a tool. Wasn't rooting for him anyway. LOL

    Jackie said...

    Becky - Now you're getting me confused. When you sign onto the Google account, what happens?

    Becky said...

    Great news, Joe. My Pebbles lost her fight with renal failure.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Aras is right. Nobody is talking strategy with Colton, so he left. UGH!!!

    Brad's right, decisions have to be made, but boy is the other team going to be gunning for him.

    Joe in NY said...

    How dumb is he? Everyone yells at him that he's calling the shots and he looks into the camera and says he has them fooled? If you had them fooled, they wouldn't be cursing you at RI, moron!!!

    monty924 said...

    I'm multi-tasking too, SueGee. Not of my own choosing. Family always knew the Big Brother rule this summer... they're pushing my patience with Survivor ;-)

    Joe in NY said...

    So sorry to hear that, Becky. I lost my cat to a combination of renal failure and heart failure last year. It's so very hard. Just thinking about losing one of the dogs makes me weepy...

    Becky said...

    Jackie, I go to your blog and then go to the upper right corner to sign in to my blog. That way my avitar appears. The remembering to sign after each post is a pain.

    If you just hit publish without putting your name in the post goes poof.

    SueGee said...

    I am usually just getting home about now but I had a dentist appt this afternoon and my teeth are so clean they squeak when I talk!

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    Becky said...

    Yeah, Joe. What makes it rough is we lost our other beagle to cancer less than two months ago. Pebbles was 14 and Maggie was almost 13.

    Jackie said...

    Becky - You don't have the option when making a comment to choose an identity?

    Becky said...

    Sue, that is so funny.

    Nickelpeed said...

    I had a couple of siblings like that, Aras

    Nickelpeed said...

    Wow, they came from two different world views, didn't they?

    monty924 said...

    That's a good thing, SueGee :)))

    monty924 said...

    Hey Penny

    monty924 said...

    Becky, there should be an option to sign in with Google Account. That will show your avatar and log you in.

    Joe in NY said...

    Surprisingly good effort from Gervase...he's normally useless

    monty924 said...

    That wasn't even a challenge.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Come on Hayden

    Nickelpeed said...

    Uh oh. That's going to hurt to pop it in.

    monty924 said...

    Mom/daughter fight harder than any of the others. Go Tina!

    Nickelpeed said...

    That was a good match up.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Come on Aras. Beat his butt.

    Nickelpeed said...

    YES!

    But, now come one Hayden

    David said...

    Becky, if it is the cookies security level you can get to them if you have windows 7 or under (never been on windows 8 so don't know it) by:

    Control panel, network and internet, internet options, privacy tab. The cookies are usually set at Med or default. If it is set to high it will block cookies. On that same page is a list of cookies that are blocked if you want to scroll through the list and look for the correct one.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Drat

    monty924 said...

    Moms rule it tonight!!

    Becky said...

    Jackie, I go to your blog and then sign in on your opening page.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Who do you think they will vote off? Which girl?

    It's a pain because I do not want to see all the girls go. Dang it!

    Jackie said...

    Becky - Yes, you said that. Have you tried just signing on via the option in comments?

    Nickelpeed said...

    Becky, I always sign in at this site. They always ask me for my password, but I don't know any other way to sign in except at The TV Show Must Go On.

    Becky said...

    Thank you, David, Jackie and Sue. I am copying your suggestions and sending them to my email. I will let hubby check later.

    I get to anxious when I try to change things on the computer. Silly, I know, but I do.

    Becky said...

    Penny, I will try that.

    SueGee said...

    I always sign in when I leave a comment. I sign in with my google id and here I am!

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    Nickelpeed said...

    I know it's probably frustrating, Becky. Just google The TV Show Must Go On, click on it and once you get in, just comment. It always works for me. If I forget my password (which is quite often), I get a new one. LOL

    lynn1 said...

    I would love to see Brad go. He is such an arrogant jerk

    Nickelpeed said...

    Ok, who would you all vote out? Brad would be a big move... what do you think?

    monty924 said...

    This tribe is being decimated. They need to do something different
    here tonight.

    monty924 said...

    I'd go John or Brad

    Becky said...

    Hayden is sure good looking!

    Nickelpeed said...

    Well, John, Brad, the girls? They's make a big play if it were Brad. Boy Marrisa would hate that.

    SueGee said...

    And I got my flu shot today at the drive-thru clinic!!

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    Nickelpeed said...

    BLIND SIDE, BLIND SIDE....

    monty924 said...

    Could be John

    monty924 said...

    SMART, smart, smart. They weren't afraid of the idol.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Oh gosh...that was some look....Brad is a target if he gets back in.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Interesting. Will this make them stronger? Probably not.

    monty924 said...

    How's the arm feeling SueGee? Flu shots hurt worse than a tetanus shot.

    Becky said...

    That is so stupid to get rid of the strength. However I can understand why they voted out John. Candice is a strong person. If they are there after the merge they would be dangerous.

    Jackie said...

    SueGee - First flu case of the season reported here in this area today.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Jackie, thank you so much for hosting. It's greatly appreciated.

    Could I ask for prayers for my daughter? She's having female problems and is now awaiting tests. It's been a bad week.

    SueGee said...

    Arm feels like I got punched there - but I want the shot before I go on the airplane next week.

    SueGee on the LeftCoast

    Becky said...

    I'll see every body Sunday. Thanks, Jackie.

    Nickelpeed said...

    Hope your arm feels better SueGee

    Nickelpeed said...

    See you all Sunday!!!!

    monty924 said...

    Don't blame you there, SG. Planes are breeding grounds.

    Thanks Jackie. Everyone have a good week and will see you all next Wednesday. So strange only getting together now once a week. I miss Big Brother. :(((

    Jackie said...

    Prayers heading out!

    And I'm ready to watch Criminal Minds. I can't believe the store clerk from the Fiber Ones commercials a few years back is so scary!

    lynn1 said...

    Thanks Jackie. Nite everyone

    Sharon N said...

    Brad is my pool guy... yuk. :(
    To me, he was yuk on the first episode.

    Stormy said...

    Does it make sense for a tribe that is losing every time vote off one of the strong ones? Brad needs to shut up if that is all he knows about the game.
