Survivor: Blood vs. Water - October 9 Episode Blog Party


Oh my gosh ... is the newbie team ever going to win ANYTHING? At least, with the "loved ones" twist this season, there's a bit of a new dynamic in the midst due to the connections. Otherwise, it would just be another season of watching experienced veteran players trounce the newcomers.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. As always, the real party is in the comments. Please join us!

****************************
Survivor fans ready? Let's partay! And, watch the show. Of course.

Redemption duel time!
Uh-oh. Husband and wife will have to duel against each other ... and Marissa.

They have to unravel a rope on a horizontal ladder doohicky, get puzzle pieces and solve a puzzle. John wins! Candice survives in second place and Marissa gets the boot. Candice told John to give the clue to the hidden idol to Monica. He went with it -- to put a target on Monica's back due to Brad being institutional in his tribal ouster. On Brad's advice, Monica burns the clue.

Immunity Challenge time!
Paddle out to crates (five of them), gather crates with puzzle pieces, solve puzzle, raise flag. Ho-hum. Reward is tea and biscotti or can be traded for fishing gear. Galang (veteran players) win once again. Oy.

Tribal Council
Ciera is worried, as she needs to be. Caleb should be worried. Whoa! Caleb says he will write Brad's name down and puts the rest on the spot.

The tally: Brad, Ciera, Ciera, Brad, Ciera, Brad. It's a tie. Re-vote time. We see Hayden scribble out where he started to write Ciera and put Brad's name instead.

The re-tally -- Brad, Ciera, Brad, Brad.

Big Bad Brad is headed to Redemption Island!

Hey Jackie and all...

Green bean crispers with ranch dipping sauce over at the bar.

~~~SPLASH~~~

Sharon S said...

First in the pool? Welcome all who follow - don't splash me too much when you dive in, please!

Sharon S said...

Oops -- Monty beat me -- hi Monty!

monty924 said...

Lol, hey Sharon S :)))

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

monty924 said...

Hi Joe

Joe in NY said...

Brad is an annoying idiot.

He wants to keep around people with loved ones after he tossed John out because he had a loved one?!?!?!

monty924 said...

I'm going to do my best to ignore family tonight so I can watch and comment at the same time :)

Jackie said...

Hey guys!

Kathy said...

Good evening everyone!

monty924 said...

Isn't it funny? You'd think that one would want to root for the 'family' tribe as the underdogs, but not me!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Everyone!!!

Brad Cullpepper is the most hated person right now.

monty924 said...

Hi Kathy

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Monty, Sharon, Joe, Kathy and others who arrive.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, my guy quite, so I'll go back to rooting for Hayden. Although, I do like the returnees.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky and Penny

Becky said...

I am so glad that John called out Brad about every vote off being his idea.

Petals said...

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

Hi everyone! I had to run home to grab...homemade Apple Pie Moonshine!

It is made with 100% grain, but tastes like a dream, so don't let it sneak-up on you.








Nickelpeed said...

I think Candace is so upset, she'll mess up.

Petals said...

Penny, While Culpepper is not anyone's most favorite - I think Trollton is still pretty hated. (by me, hehheeh)

Petals said...

I do not like the "Redemption Island" idea thingy.

The duels are exciting, but the concept is full of holes.

monty924 said...

Lol, UPS just dropped a package on the porch and rung the doorbell. Dogs going crazy and I missed the RI challenge. Grrrrr!

Nickelpeed said...

Poor Marissa. :-(

monty924 said...

Hi Petals... I'll take some of that. If it isn't family, it's UPS! ;)))

Kathy said...

Hi Monty

Becky said...

Monica, honey, they are aggresive to your husband because he is a H-A. What can we say.

Nickelpeed said...

I didn't like Trolton, either, Petals. He was my pool pick and I'm glad he's gone. LOL

I like the fact that John said it's a game, yet, that is how Brad is playing it, it's a game.

Becky said...

Hey, Petals -- we can drink your stuff for our "word" tonight Oh, what is the word?

Sharon S said...

Monty -- UPS should know not to deliver packages during Survivor!

I don't know who to root for. My pool pick left, so I'm treading water until I decide who to like.

Petals said...

*sliding big mug o'moonshine to Monty*

Hey girl, I'm such a shopaholic, my UPS guy is one my closest friends. HAHA (but he is, really)

monty924 said...

Becky, is H-A a**hat or a**hole backwards? If so, I agree :)))

monty924 said...

Lol, I know! I'm getting to know mine too. I have about ten or more things being delivered this week. I call it retail therapy, and I've earned it after a few stressful weeks.

monty924 said...

Yummy and smooth, as moonshine goes, Petals! *thanks*

Joanie said...

Will John and Candiice get any "alone" time on Redemption Island? They are a married couple after all? :-)

monty924 said...

Joanie, they will until the next one comes along.

Becky said...

Well, Monty, the second word is correct, but I was thinking horses for the H.

Becky said...

Joanie, I bet they get in some "family" time as soon as they get back to RI sinced someone will arrive that night.

monty924 said...

^5 Becky. lol Horsesa** is good too!

Nickelpeed said...

There's the Gervase we all know. LOL

Becky said...

Joe, how is the baby doing? I dislike people who sneak food on Survivor.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree with you, Becky. It's so sneaky.

Yes, Joe, how is your baby. She doing well and walking well?

Becky said...

Heck, when I take Momma fruit or other treat, which is almost every day, I take something for the other three ladies at her table too. I don't want for them to have to watch her enjoy while they have nothing.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Becky & Nickel. She's doing better. Still a little sore, but coming along. Thanks for asking.

Joe in NY said...

The returnees have been horrible in the boats, haven't they?

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Tahana. Just once, do it

Nickelpeed said...

If they don't, they need to do something.

monty924 said...

Well the episode isn't called One Armed Dude and Three Moms for nuthin'

Nickelpeed said...

This is really bad. Ugh. But, you know, that shows how good the returnees really are.

Becky said...

It's a shame that the newbies can't win something.

Petals said...

The challenges this season are GREAT!

Nickelpeed said...

That's true, Monty! LOL

Becky said...

You ladies talking about shopping, etc.... after the vet bills we had the past two months I told my husband I was glad that I didn't want to shop any more.

monty924 said...

Becky, understood. My purchases didn't add up to all that much and it was heavenly retail therapy so I feel not guilt. :)))

monty924 said...

*no guilt :)

monty924 said...

So, who's it going to be?

monty924 said...

Interesting

Nickelpeed said...

Well, we just paid off our HHR last month; and what do I do, I let my husband talk me in to a new car. The payments were less than the HHR, but I was hoping to go longer. We got a Chevy Spark. Nice car. They gave us everything included in the package. Dash board is very cool. I even connected my phone to the bluetooth system. Hands free.

Becky said...

The chickens are coming home to roost!

Becky said...

Hayden sure is cute.

Nickelpeed said...

I just can't see them winning anything. What do they have to lose voting Brad out?

Nickelpeed said...

Ooooh, liar

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Hayden....vote Brad!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, this is interesting.

monty924 said...

Draw rocks, LOL

monty924 said...

WOW

Joe in NY said...

he took it better than I thought

Joe in NY said...

We need a Redemption Island live feed. LOL

Sharon S said...

Probably the smartest thing Hayden could have done. He is cute. I think I'm going to root for him (I think I was rooting for him when he was on BB too).

I liked Brad telling people he's not mad.

Petals said...

I don't like BRAD at all.

Hayden sure looks good.

monty924 said...

I'm with Joe :)))

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, Vytas changed his mind? Or was it Hayden? And, now he has to face John and Candace? LOL

Sharon S said...

Joe -- lol!

Becky said...

WOW! Frankly I am glad he is gone. Penny, I will be sending you an email.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Hayden looks great! heehee

Sharon S said...

I think it was Hayden who voted for him to go.

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. See you guys Sunday night.

Nickelpeed said...

It will be interesting to see how he does on Redemption. Maybe this will do the job for the group.

Petals said...

I miss seeing you guys several times a week.
Hope everyone is doing well.
XOXOXOXO

monty924 said...

Kaleb taking a page out of Colton's play book

Sharon S said...

Thanks Jackie. Night all

Nickelpeed said...

I saw Hayden change it, but did he change it back?

Thank you Jackie. See everyone Sunday.

monty924 said...

It wasn't Hayden. He voted Ciera out.

Thanks Jackie. Great show and great party. See you all next week. have a good one

Jackie said...

That was interesting. Hmm.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon N said...

Brad to Redemption... gotta love it.
Watched and yes, Hayden started to vote for Ciera, then scratched her name out. But I watched for the scratched up ballot and looked like he decided to put her name down after all.

Gotta love Hayden, but I'm really getting to like Caleb too!!
