Survivor: Blood vs. Water - November 27 Episode Blog Party


Happy first night of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving Eve to all! I realize many folks might be on the road tonight or getting ready for the holiday, but the party is still on here at the blog! It seems that, unlike other years, this is actually a new action-packed episode tonight instead of the clips show. Woot!

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 always, the real party is in the comments area. Come join in on the fun!

The latest blog pool standings from the Esteemed Lifeguard Laurie:

End of Week 11/20
CALEB -- Glenn, ORKMommy
CIERA -- Andrea J, Karen in CA, Rochelle
GERVASE -- Jackie, Pam in NJ
HAYDEN -- Joanie, Quixotic Elf
KATIE -- David, Margo, Zoetawny
MONICA -- Becky, KayBeeRN, Russ
TYSON -- Delee, meb

Redemption Island
VYTAS -- Donna NY, ML
TINA -- Cheryl in NC, Lynn1, Terry in TX
LAURA M -- AlbGlinka, JOKATS, rbennie

Jury
ARAS -- Donna in FL, MikesGirl

Survivor fans ready?

While Vytas wonders why no one votes out Tyson, the duel is about to happen. Much ado about Ciera voting her mom out of the game.

The Redemption duel -- retrieve and stack four color cubes so that no one color is repeated on any side. Laura wins! Thanks to Laura's help, Tina came in second. Sigh. Vytas will go to jury with his brother. Laura gives the idol clue to Ciera. Ciera burns it.

Tyson tries to work all against Katie. Hayden want to blindside Tyson. I knew the kid could think! Gah! Ciera rats them out to Tyson! Tyson thinks Caleb should be the target.

Immunity -- Holding onto a rope with a bucket containing 25% of their body weight. Twist -- if someone feels secure, they can feast instead of trying. Tyson, Gervase and Ciera decide to eat. Hmm. Katie is out first. Caleb is out. It's down to Hayden and Monica now. Hayden's out. Monica wins her third individual immunity!

Aha! Hayden and Caleb convince Tyson that Ciera's trying to turn them on each other. He's not sure he trusts them that much, but is definitely suspicious of Ciera.Now Ciera seems to the the latest target.

Tribal Council time. The tally -- Whoa! Tyson plays the idol! Now, the tally -- Ciera, Caleb, Ciera, Ciera, Caleb, Caleb, Caleb.

Caleb is off to Redemption. It's a shame it wasn't Ciera! But Tyson's idol was totally wasted. Heehee!

Anyone out there? I realize it's a holiday eve, but ...!

Joe in NY said...

I'm here. Happy Thanksgiving, Jackie!

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie and Joe... running a little behind.

Happy Thanksgiving to you both!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and Joe.

Jackie said...

Hey, Joe! I thought I was going to have to drink all this beer myself.

monty924 said...

Oh, I have the Biltmore Holiday White from last year. Thought we could all toast to the new jury member tonight.

Hey, Beckie!

Becky said...

Tina is good at puzzles.

Becky said...

Maybe the brothers can bond.

Joe in NY said...

Hell of a way to risk losing a jury vote not just for you but also for your daughter

monty924 said...

Not sorry to see Vytas go.

Joe in NY said...

not sorry to see Vytas go, but I kind of don't like the way Laura and Tina did it. I can't recall anything quite like it ever

Becky said...

You have a point about the vote, Joe. Jackie, pass me a beer, please.

monty924 said...

I'll have to watch it back, Joe. Distracted by the dogs and the bathroom reno going on around me. :)))

monty924 said...

Ewww, gross! I think I'll bring a barf bag to the Amazing Race on Sunday.

Becky said...

Pick him off tonight, please, please, please.

Becky said...

It probably won't happen.

Becky said...

Cierra will tattle! Bet you a dollar.

Becky said...

Told you so!

monty924 said...

Geesh, Hayden might have to just win that individual immunity tonight.

Sharon S said...

I'm here -- missed the beginning because my nieces had Disney channel on both tvs. I finally got one back from them!

Sharon S said...

Hayden is in trouble?! No!!!!!

monty924 said...

I don't believe Tyson when he says he was ready to go to the final four with them. Not with the way the Jury is shaping up.

monty924 said...

Hi, Sharon. Now they want to flip on Caleb, but it's too early to tell. Makes me believe it will be somebody else tonight.

Jackie said...

It's funny that Caleb is so likable while Colton is so despicable!

monty924 said...

True that, Jackie!

Sharon S said...

Hi everyone :)

Caleb probably balances Colton....and keeps him calmer, nicer.

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, I think Colton just doesn't handle adversity well. He's probably fine when not under duress.

Becky said...

Rat Finks!

monty924 said...

Never fails... what idiots.

Joe in NY said...

That shocks me that Tyson would take the food. I'm not at all surprised at Gervase (useless!) and Ciera (thinks she's the swing vote), but Tyson should know better.

Joe in NY said...

Of course Tyson does have the HII if he wants to play it. He also has a bad shoulder still, doesn't he?

monty924 said...

Tyson is an ASS

Sharon S said...

Doesn't Tyson have the idol?

What would have happened if they all chose food?

Becky said...

I hope the food makes all three of them barf.

monty924 said...

He does, Sharon.

Joe in NY said...

Can't believe Monica on this one

monty924 said...

Way to go Monica!

monty924 said...

Now if should would only flip and not go along with Tyson's plan! A girl can hope :)))

Joe in NY said...

Of course, if they all vote Tyson and he plays the idol then Hayden would end up going home.

monty924 said...

*she would

monty924 said...

I have a feeling he will play it tonight, Joe. If he's smart.

SueGee said...

Just stopped in to wish everyone a happy holiday - whatever they are celebrating!!

Leaving in the morning at the crack of dawn to drive north to the redwoods. Gonna be cold and damp but family fun!

SueGee on the Left Coast

Becky said...

Everybody have a safe and wonderful holiday. If you are going to be traveling, be careful.

Anonymous said...

Just stopping in on my iPhone. Dang. Can't stand Tyson and Ciera. What a little snitch. Snitches do not go far.

Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah

Penny

monty924 said...

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving with the family, SueGee!

First one in a long time that I'll be spending with Steve's family and not mine.

Anonymous said...

Drive safely, Sue. Our trip today was easy until we go 30 miles from my MILs house. It started snowing like crazy. Pretty though.

Penny

Becky said...

I hope they do get rid of the little tattletale.

Joe in NY said...

"Swing Vote" always goes home. LOL

monty924 said...

One brother smiling, the other looking PO'd!

Joe in NY said...

You'd think Ciera voting out her mother would make her somewhat suspect to her "alliance". I mean, if you'll vote out your Mom, who are you loyal to other than your self?

monty924 said...

What an ass!

Anonymous said...

Good, they got him to use it.

Penny

monty924 said...

But I bet he just wasted it :))))

Becky said...

Rats!

monty924 said...

Aww, wish it would have been Ciera!

Sharon S said...

Maybe Hayden will find the Hidden idol this time :)

Becky said...

Jackie, thanks for hosting us. See you next Sunday.

monty924 said...

The way Tyson is playing, he could get Russelled if he makes it to the end.

Joe in NY said...

Well, it's now 4 on 2. But Tyson just showed his hand. I'm not sure I wouldn't want to be one of the 2, given that the 4 includes Tyson who kept the Idol totally hidden and Ciera who voted out her Mom and Monica who has been a pain in the ass since week 1.

Anonymous said...

Dang it. I really can't stand those 4. Poor Caleb. Darn it. One by one. Crap.

Penny

Becky said...

BTW, the Book Thief is a wonderful book. It is considered young adult, but is enjoyable for adults too.

Jackie said...

Best wishes for a Happy Hanukkah if you celebrate and a great Thanksgiving! Thank you all for dropping by tonight!

monty924 said...

I like the way you think, Sharon! ;-)

Everyone, have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Off to start prepping for tomorrow.

Have a great day with the ones you love, and will see you all next week.

I wish he would, Monty.
