Survivor: Blood vs. Water - November 6 Episode Blog Party


It sounds like tonight should be action-packed -- someone returning from Redemption Island and the merge is on! I do think that all those people who worried about Aras and Vytas getting together and thinking they should do something about it may have wished they had done so!

Lifeguard Laurie has returned to the real world after a splendid well-deserved time away from home. Here are the latest pool standings:

End of Week Three 10/30
Galang
KATIE -- David, Margo, Zoetawny
MONICA -- Becky, KayBeeRN, Russ
TINA -- Cheryl in NC, Lynn1, Terry in TX
VYTAS -- Donna NY, ML

Tadhana
ARAS -- Donna in FL, MikesGirl
CALEB -- Glenn, ORKMommy
CIERA -- Andrea J, Karen in CA, Rochelle
GERVASE -- Jackie, Pam in NJ
HAYDEN -- Joanie, Quixotic Elf
TYSON -- Delee, meb

Redemption Island
JOHN -- Ed in Ohio, Nana in the NW
LAURA M -- AlbGlinka, JOKATS, rbennie
LAURA B -- Buzzmaan, Laurie, SueGee


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

Survivor fans ready?

Duel time - this time it's do or die. The winner returns to the game; the two losers go home. It's an endurance duel -- hanging onto a pole as long as they can. Not surprisingly, due to size and weight, John is out first. Laura M. seems the most secure although Ciera would rather play her own game. Laura M. returns to the game -- Laura B. and John both out for good.

Drop your buffs. The merge is indeed on.

Even though she could have kept it for herself, Laura threw the Hidden Idol clue in the fire.

Tyson found the idol and says that he isn't going to tell anyone. We'll see about that! They always seem to tell.

First individual immunity up for grabs! They will be shown a series of pictures and each must show them back in order on a cube. Monica out first. Caleb and Katie out. Tyson and Tina out. Hayden out. First round done.

Second round. Laura out. Ciera out. Gervase out. It's down to Aras and Vytas. Vytas wins immunity! (It's a shame Aras is a big target for others.) Gervase and Tyson still go for an Aras exit.

The tally: Laura, Laura, Ciera, Ciera, Aras, Aras, Aras, Aras, Aras ... rats. I liked him! The Tyson/Gervase plan worked. But, Aras is going to Redemption. He's not booted yet!

Hi Jaackie & everyone

Nickelpeed said...

~~~SPLASH~~~ Here we go!!!

Thank you for hosting us, Jackie!!!

Hi everyone!!!

lynn1 said...

Hi Penny

Nickelpeed said...

I'm wondering who makes it back in? Laura M or John?

lynn1 said...

Where is everyone tonight?

Jackie said...

Hi, guys! Ready for the merge?

Petals said...

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

Hey everyone!
I have a pumpkin pie, and a 12pack of Angry Orchard Apple Ale

monty924 said...

Hey Jackie, Penny and Lynn! I'm late, but I made it!

~~~~SPLASH~~~~

Petals said...

They have to merge, since the "shake-up" left the tribes so laughably lopsided.

lynn1 said...

I am ready for the merge

lynn1 said...

Hi Petals and Monty

monty924 said...

Petals, that sounds good to me. I actually had turkey breast, dressing and mashed potatoes for dinner last night. Thanksgiving preview :)))

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Lynn, Penny and others who arrive.

Petals said...

Oooh...women are usually good at this.
Laura B is out.

monty924 said...

I don't think it will be Laura B. The M could take this one.

Petals said...

or not

Becky said...

John looks like he may be struggling.

Becky said...

I hope he goes back into the game.

Petals said...

he can't pointe his way thru this.

monty924 said...

John OUT

Becky said...

Guess not.

Nickelpeed said...

Ugh. That sucks for him.

lynn1 said...

oh My John is out

monty924 said...

Got to admire her moxie!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

lynn1 said...

Hi Joe

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. That was a hard one. Would have kind of liked to see John win. But Laura M was secure all the way.

Petals said...

I do not like Blood v Water.
It is not interesting to me.
Maybe it is just these particular contestants - all these chicks, Tina & her daughter and yada yada yada - just to much cheese and mean-girlness for me

Petals said...

Hey Joe!

Nickelpeed said...

How could any one think this would NOT be very hard. To me, it does not look easy at all. No way.

monty924 said...

Hi Joe!

MERGE

lynn1 said...

I agree Petals

monty924 said...

WHAT??? I get the clue is a curse, but I would want it. Hmmmm

Petals said...

and burning the clues, no immunity idols, just boring. IMO.
What do you guys think?

Nickelpeed said...

I like Blood vs water, Petals. I think now that they have merged, you'll see some of them disappear. Heck, I think Tyson is meaner than some of the girls. However, of the women, I think Monica and Tina are extremely mean.

Joe in NY said...

I liked the idea of Blood vs. Water, but we need more interesting couples. And, I think more balance. Maybe all spouses or all siblings or all parents/children. I mean Gervase and his niece? That's nothing like Tina and her daughter. He didn't care at all when she went home.

And Gervase was useless 13 years ago, so I'm not sure bringing him back added much excitement. There's just some very dull returning players.

But there have been worse seasons, and it may start to get interesting now.

lynn1 said...

I would like to see Caleb and Hayden team up

Nickelpeed said...

Remember how Rob felt about the HII? I think they all think it's a curse to them. If they look for it, people try to blindside them. It's better to look for it without anyone knowing. Safer.

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Lifeguard Laurie signing in. Glad to see you all again!

Joe in NY said...

I also don't understand the clue. I mean, why not find a way to use the clue so it's not divisive. You could share it with your whole tribe, for example.

Petals said...

Blech, Tina & Tyson sicken me.

monty924 said...

This is what I like. Finding the idol :)))

Nickelpeed said...

This sucks. I hope he doesn't find it, darn it.

Joe in NY said...

oh, God. Not Tyson.

monty924 said...

Atta boy Tyson!

lynn1 said...

Boo hiss Tyson found it

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it. Why him? It puts him further in to power. Dang.

monty924 said...

That's a pretty lame II. It's just a HUGE washer! @@

Joe in NY said...

LOL, Monty. I know. I mean, spend $20 on your hit TV show for a fancier HII.

Nickelpeed said...

Not good, too confident. Yikes. Don't want to see them go yet.

monty924 said...

My atta boy was just a big YES to the idol being found and in play. I'm not a Tyson fan by any means. Why didn't Hayden go looking for it?

Petals said...

DARN IT!
Grrrr...

Petals said...

Hayden is kinda new to this, I wish he'd gone for it.

monty924 said...

I know Joe! lmbo

monty924 said...

I don't know... Tyson is entertaining. I might swing to the dark side. ;-)

Becky said...

Here's a spoon, Tyson. Here's a spoon.

lynn1 said...

Deja vu just like BB Only people I don't like are going to end up winning

monty924 said...

They spent a few more coins on that one!

lynn1 said...

nice necklace

monty924 said...

Darn

Joe in NY said...

I can't believe Gervase got past the first round. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Man, there's a long time to go. Must be a heck of a tribal negotiation.

Petals said...

Me too, Joe, re Gervase

Joe in NY said...

gotta wonder if this hurts the brothers. You know how paranoid people are.

monty924 said...

He threw that

Becky said...

I wish they would blindside Tyson, but no chance of that happening.

lynn1 said...

I'm with you Becky but I know they won't

monty924 said...

I don't think one of the brothers will go. Something about Tyson's plans and the edit makes me think otherwise.

Petals said...

I agree, Becky.

Petals said...

He looks like an anorexia before picture

lynn1 said...

LOL petals

Becky said...

Ciera is a snot. Little does she know.

Nickelpeed said...

If they vote out Aras, does he go to the jury?

Nickelpeed said...

Man, Jeff brings up a lot of things to think about. He needs to let it be.

Petals said...

monty924 said...

Not always, Penny.

Nickelpeed said...

I wish they would vote out Monica.

Nickelpeed said...

I would like Aras be in the Jury, so I hope he does go to the Jury. This is a pot luck, man....

Nickelpeed said...

Nail bitting

Petals said...

Me too Penny, Monica.
So many *itches this season, even the men are *itches: Colton, Tyson, the football guy...

Nickelpeed said...

Gosh, it's going to be Aras because everyone else couldn't stick with one.

Petals said...

What was the footballs guy name?
Coldpecker?

monty924 said...

I was wrong! Buh bye Aras!

monty924 said...

UGH, I was hoping RI was done!

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, I though RI was over. Cool. Hopefully, he'll get back in.

Joe in NY said...

Aras could pull an Ozzy from RI. IF you consider the lack of athleticism among many of the remaining contestants.

David said...

Hi all. ;-) Late but just barely made it before the end. The show starts here in about 5 minutes. Just wasn't paying attention to the time. Hope everyone is good.

Sounds like this will be an interesting show.

lynn1 said...

redemption Island again....

Nickelpeed said...

LOL. Monty

monty924 said...

LOL @ Petals.

Becky said...

Darn. I wish they would catch on to Tyson and Jarves.

Nickelpeed said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie. See everyone on Sunday for TAR.

Petals said...

See you guys later. :)
Thanks Ms J!

Becky said...

Is he going to R-I or out.

Nickelpeed said...

@ Petals....coldpecker. LMAO

monty924 said...

Jackie, once again... fabulous party. I must be off now!

See you all next week and until then - CHEERS!

Becky said...

There's my anwser. Thanks, Jackie. See you Sunday.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie nite everyone

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, all! David - I feel bad that you show up and we all take off. Enjoy the show!

Shelby Fechtman said...

I'm thrilled they're finally merged. Hopefully Aras can fight his way back and then not immediately get kicked off. :/
