Survivor: Blood vs. Water - November 13 Episode Blog Party


Well, last week we saw Vytas win the first individual immunity of the season while brother Aras got the boot. Tyson, playing perhaps the sneakiest game this season, has the idol but was in no danger all along. Actually, unless you're Aras or Vytas, it made sense to get rid of Aras as he has a real chance to win it all. And, after all, he just might still have a chance as Redemption Island started up all over again.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this post with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest! But, as always, the real party is in the comments area ... come join us!

Here are the latest blog pool standings from that elegant Lifeguard Laurie:

End of Week 11/6
CALEB -- Glenn, ORKMommy
CIERA -- Andrea J, Karen in CA, Rochelle
GERVASE -- Jackie, Pam in NJ
HAYDEN -- Joanie, Quixotic Elf
KATIE -- David, Margo, Zoetawny
LAURA M -- AlbGlinka, JOKATS, rbennie
MONICA -- Becky, KayBeeRN, Russ
TINA -- Cheryl in NC, Lynn1, Terry in TX
TYSON -- Delee, meb
VYTAS -- Donna NY, ML

Redemption Island
ARAS -- Donna in FL, MikesGirl

Survivor fans ready?

Oh my, Immunity Challenge is coming only seven minutes into the episode! It's the icky food comp ... fun to watch, but I couldn't do it.

40 mealworms (live, of course)
3 ounces pig intestines
It's between Monica and Gervase for the win.
2 live grubs

Monica wins immunity!

The plan seems to be to split the votes between Vytas and Katie. Tribal is coming early in the episode, too -- 8:22pm. Hmm. Something must be up or VERY entertaining ahead!

The tally -- Vytas, Katie, Tyson, Vytas, Vytas, Vytas, Vytas.

Rats. He'll have duel with his brother to return.

Second Immunity Challenge -- Balance a sword on a shield, with other hand balance coins on the sword's handle.

Katie wins Immunity!

Due to Monica's wild vote for Vytas last tribal, she's a target this time ... perhaps more so than Tina. Still no one knows that Tyson has the hidden idol.

At Tribal Council, Tina hints she might have the idol.

The tally -- Monica, Tina, Tyson, Tina, Tina, Tina, Tina.

Her ploy didn't work. I personally would have preferred it if Monica went.

Hi Jackie & everyone. I brought chicken tortilla soup and Mexican corn bread for the cool night

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie! No watchers tonight?

Becky said...

Hey, Lynn. Whoo-hooo, Lynn. I love chicken tortilla soup. I brought pecan pralines for desert.

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie, Lynn and Becky...

Sliding into the deep end. Long day, but I have my beverage in hand. What's the word?

monty924 said...

Perfect food, Lynn! Love both :)))

lynn1 said...

Hi Becky I love pralines. have you ever had the chocolate pecan pralines? they are wonerful

Becky said...

Hey, Monty. I have no idea for a word. It was a long, hard day here too. I sure am glad the pool is heated. The water feels great!

Petals said...

Hey guys!

Since we do this sometimes, is it OK if I ask for everyone to send happy vibes to my husband - he is having a liver biopsy this Friday. Thanks!

I HATE TINA & TYSON!

lynn1 said...

Hey Monty

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone....let the backstabbing begin!!!!

Jackie said...

How about ALLIANCE as the word? I feel like drinking heavy tonight!
;-)

David said...

I still have a bunch of leftover candy from Halloween. Dig in.

And Hi everyone.

My dog is sitting, stareing at me after he came back from outside like somehow the cold weather is my fault. 0_o

lynn1 said...

Petals,Good Vibes for your hubby. Hope he gets good news. keep us posted

lynn1 said...

Hi David

Petals said...

Lynn - RMFT
Hey M - how is da baby?

lynn1 said...

Gross

Nickelpeed said...

Tyson needs to be sent to RI. But, he's playing to win. Don't have to like him, though. LOL

monty924 said...

You have mine, Petals! <3

Good word, Jackie! It is ALLIANCE :)

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

Petals said...

DAMN! Ms Jackie says she wants to drink! Whoooo!
*procuring 2 boxes of wine from cooler*

Petals said...

JOE! :)

lynn1 said...

Tyson would eat anything

Joe in NY said...

not for nothing, but if my food is wriggling I'm not sure what good it does to hold your nose. It can't be the taste that's the problem.

Laurie said...

I may need to FF during the eating challenge. Just the previews made me gag!

Joe in NY said...

Petals!

Petals said...

c'mon Caleb!

monty924 said...

The boy is good, and sleeping in HIS recliner as I type. He's still not a Survivor fan though. LOL

These gross food challenges always make me smile! BIG

Joe in NY said...

I could eat anything...as long as it was dead! LOL. I don't think I could handle the wriggling food.

lynn1 said...

Yay caleb

lynn1 said...

Hi Joe

Petals said...

They haven't done this kinda challenge in a while.

Joe in NY said...

That's just chitlings. Way easier than those live meal worms.

Petals said...

Tyson is a little girl.

Nickelpeed said...

Good vibes to your husband, Petals. I had a liver biopsy a few years back. Can't say it is pleasant. LOL

monty924 said...

Tyson not so tough right now, LOL!

Petals said...

GO GERVASE!!!!

Becky said...

Petals, email me hubby's name so I can call him by name in my prayers.

Lynn, no I haven't had chocolate ones. I took pralines to my Beagle Mom Reunion one year. I was informed that if I didn't bring pralines to any future reunions, not to bother to come, they would send me home to get them.

Jackie, sounds like you had a rough day too.

I dislike this challange.

Petals said...

Tina is a grub. Eat her.

monty924 said...

True on the wriggling, Joe! YUCK

Petals said...

Penny - how long will he be down? Can he go out the next day? Just to eat?

monty924 said...

Yay! Don't necessarily like her, but a woman won the GROSS challenge. Go Monica!!!

Petals said...

Gross. Of course, leave it to MONICA to be able to put anything in her mouth.

lynn1 said...

How is your ankle Jackie? can you walk without pain?

Joe in NY said...

sending good vibes, Petals

Becky said...

Jackie, what's up with the ankle? Did I miss something?

Laurie said...

I brought iced tea for the West Coasters. Over 90 in parts of San Diego, down to 75 here at 5:15 pm. Too hot!!

Prayers for your husband, Petals.

lynn1 said...

Petals RTR going to the rose bowl in Jan

Joe in NY said...

Yes, Jackie. What's up with the ankle? I definitely missed something

Laurie said...

Petals, funny comment about MONICA!

Nickelpeed said...

Hope you are feeling better, Jackie.

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, he won't really be down. It just hurts when they put that HUGE needle in his liver. He'll have to lie on his right side for a couple of hours after he has it done. They'll put him in to a room for awhile. Then when he sleeps at night, he needs to lay on his right side because it will hurt to lay on the left side.

monty924 said...

LMAO @ Petals

Nickelpeed said...

Why do they always target the women. Do these women not understand they are next?

Becky said...

Is this a double elim. night?

Nickelpeed said...

Oh wow. Will they target Vytas now?

David said...

pre-show reaser said 2 tribal councils, so maybe 2 evictions.

David said...

Teaser*

Nickelpeed said...

Petals: His first day will be a tough day. His liver will hurt. I'd wait to go out to dinner the next day.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, this is will be interesting. Who will go?

Joe in NY said...

They always target the women because the women are always trying to put together a women's alliance. LOL, Nickel. YOu can't have it both ways.

Becky said...

Penny, the one I most want to go is sitting pretty.

Petals said...

thanks guys

Jackie said...

Joe - I tripped over a branch hidden by about six inches of fallen leaves. I twisted my left ankle, landed on my right knee. Knee is okay, ankle is still painful and swollen. But I'm okay.

Nickelpeed said...

Also, Petals - it depends on what kind of biopsy they do. They can go through the vein in your neck. Most don't do that because they don't get a good reading, most go in with a huge needle and pull out fluid and tissue. He will not be able to lift more than 10-15 pounds for a few days.

Nickelpeed said...

Man...figured they do that to him. What a bunch of scumbags.

monty924 said...

Yup, Monica just moved to the bottom of the totem pole.

Nickelpeed said...

I do not like Monica or Tyson. I will be disappointed if either of them win. Dang.

With Aras and Vytas, can't only one of them get back in to the game?

monty924 said...

Like this challenge. It's nice when the do something different every once and a while. Most to challenges are retreads.

monty924 said...

Oopsie... Monica is in trouble now.

monty924 said...

Jervase is pretty useless out there.

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, you rooting for Hayden?

Nickelpeed said...

Well my pool pick quit, so I'm rooting for Hayden.

Don't turn away Hayden. Stay focused.

Becky said...

Someone blow on Tyson's stack, please. Thank you.

Nickelpeed said...

Woohoo. Glad she won. That was good. Would have liked for Hayden, but I do not think he's in trouble.

monty924 said...

Way to go! Like to see an underdog win, but it means Tina will be a big target now.

Becky said...

Penny, I have Monica in the pool, but I don't like her much. I am rooting for Hayden.

lynn1 said...

I hope it is Monica or even my pool pick Tina I am tired of hearing them flapping their jaws

David said...

Ohh My.... My pool pick, Katie, actually won something.

Nickelpeed said...

What a horrible person. That's terrible. Tyson sure hasn't changed.

Nickelpeed said...

Please just vote for Monica. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I think Tina will go. She sealed the deal. :-(

monty924 said...

What is up with TINA????

Becky said...

Penny, I never liked him before. He sure is making it hard for me not to hate him. I have made a real effort to remove hate from my life.

Nickelpeed said...

Tina is trying to save herself. I do like her better than Monica.

monty924 said...

Monica's mouth... yikes!

monty924 said...

Then Tina opens hers!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, whether they keep Tina or Monica, nobody will vote for either. That is the only reason they'll keep either one of them.

Becky said...

Tina may be older but she is a fighter.

monty924 said...

The mouth gets you every time, lol. Bye-bye Tina

lynn1 said...

Now I can cheer for who I like

Becky said...

I wish they had taken Monica out since they don't see Tyson as the threat that he is.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. Good night everyone.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh well, strong personalities. We'll see what happens next.

Jackie, hope your ankle feels better soon. Thank you for hosting.

See everyone Sunday at TAR!

Becky, I'm a Hayden fan. Hope he plays well. How Gidget?

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting us. I will see you guys Sunday. Petals, please send me hubby's name.

Nickelpeed said...

They know Tyson is a threat, but they are stupid not to do something about it. I don't get it.

monty924 said...

Show's over so I can post an update. Joey had surgery on Monday to correct his cherry eye and remove a growth/mass on his neck. He's doing fine now.

Sydney on the other hand may be finding another forever home. Dug up a baseball size hole in the carpet under the kennel cage. Sigh!

Jackie said...

Thanks for stopping by, all! You know I have to get on with watching Criminal Minds!

Joe in NY said...

Hope you feel better, Jackie.


Lucky (non)break. Landing on your knee could have been really bad.

Becky said...

What a brat that Sierra is! Oh, throw Momma under the train! I am off.

Penny, will write you later about Gidget.

Jackie said...

Joe - The fake knees seem tougher than the natural ones, thank goodness.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. Hope the ankle continues to heal and you get some pain relief. :)))

Joe in NY said...

LOL. Poor Sydney. Little love, little training, lots of exercise, it'll all be better.

Nickelpeed said...

They told me my fake knee would probably outlast me. LOL

Laurie said...
