Survivor: Cagayan - Season Premiere blog party!


It's HERE -- the 28th season of Survivor! Of course, with two seasons per year, that's only 14 years, but still ...! This is the first time they've gone with a brains, beauty, brawn scenario on the show, so we'll see how that works out. I still say the qualities tend to overlap and infringe upon each other.

Lifeguard Laurie's random blog pool picks were posted late last night. However, for ease of trying to pick out your pick when we don't know these castaways yet, here it is again for easy reference:

Beauty
Jeremiah Wood - LostChyld
Alexis Maxwell - Donna in FL, Petals
Brice Johnston - Karen in CA, PDX Granny
Jefra Bland - David, Sharon S.
LJ McKanas - Lorraine, ML
Morgan McLeod - Donna in Alabama, ORKMommy

Brains 
David Samson - Jennasmom
Garrett Adelstein - Brenda, Paula Bell
J'Tia Taylor - Knickelpeed, Merrilee
Kass McQuillen -Delee, MikesGirl
Spencer Bledsoe - Becky and Monty924
Tasha Fox - DKNYNC, Rochelle

Brawn
Trisha Hegarty - Jackie
Cliff Robinson - Dusty, Margo
Lindsey Ogle - Brian
Sarah Lacina - Buzzmaan, Tammy
Tony Viachos - Lynn1, Zoetawny
Woo Hwang - Laurie, SueGee

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to see the latest! As always, the real party is down in the comments. Come join us! And, if you're not in the pool, go ahead and find a castaway to cheer on for the season!

Each tribe chooses a leader -- LJ Beauty, Brawn is Sarah, Brains is David

Leaders have to decide who is the weakest and most expendable. LJ picks Morgan. Sarah picks Trish (my blog person, eek!). David picks Garrett. The three chosen head to camp early, don't leave the game, and need to make a "decision" on the part of their tribes.

Notes on trees -- help themselves with a clue to a hidden idol or help their tribe  (bag of rice for the tribes). Garrett helps himself. Trish goes for the rice. Morgan goes for the idol. Garrett found his idol. Morgan, caught by her arriving tribe members, lied and told them she picked the supplies over comfort for them. Not too shabby thinking, I must say.

Oh my. Beauty got fire first!

The immunity challenge is a convoluted obstacle course ending in a puzzle. First two tribes done win immunity. The reward is fire. First is a fire-making kit, but the second winning tribe only gets flint to make fire.

Jeff calls the Brains effort one of the worst ever coming out of the gate. Beauty wins! Brawn is second. Brains will go to tribal council.

Time to tally the votes:
J'Tia, David, J'Tia, David, David, David ... Yay! He's obnoxious!

Second immunity challenge time! Swimming out into bamboo cage, retrieve fish traps, puzzle. First two win immunity. Reward - 1st tribe, large fishing kit. 2nd, fishing supplies. Brawn tribe wins! J'Tia is once again screwing up for Brains. Beauty was way behind, but is now pulling into second place. Beauty is second place. Brains goes to tribal once again.

Tony (Brawn) found a clue to the idol in their reward basket. He's got the idol! He sounds like he's having an orgasm. :X

Second Tribal Council. J'Tia admits she threw the rice in the fire after Garrett decided they should have an open talk about voting her out.

The tally -- J'Tia, Garrett, J'Tia, Garrett, Garrett ... voted out with his idol in his pocket. Wait, even worse ... he forgot to bring it to tribal because he was so sure it would be J'Tia going home!

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

I have strawberry pina coladas. 2 big frozen pitchers :)

Jackie said...

Sounds good to me!

monty924 said...

Woohoo, love the drinks Petals. I have crab stuffed mushrooms. Dig in!

~~~SPLASH~~~

Petals said...

Helloooooo Jeremiah :)

Sharon S said...

hi everyone! So excited that it's time for the season to start!

lynn1 said...

Hi Jackie & Petals. I have chicken chilli and Mexican Corn Bread. I already hate tony.

monty924 said...

I think my Spencer is going to be a dud. Too arrogant, even though he hates that in others. :/

lynn1 said...

Hi monty & Sharon S

monty924 said...

I've missed all of you. Too long between seasons :)))

lynn1 said...

Luving the mushrooms

Joe in NY said...

Yes, honey, no one votes off the pretty girls...do they even watch the show? I mean, even if they aren't fans, stream a few episodes once you're selected.

Rochelle said...

Whew! Almost missed it! Hi everyone. I have someone who is a brain.

monty924 said...

He already reminds my of Cappy... eeekkk

Petals said...

I like the cop :)
Hi everyone

Rochelle said...

True Monty. Hi Joe Hi Lynn1, Hi Sharon S, Hi Petals Hi Jackie!!!

Petals said...

hello LJ

Rochelle said...

you never want to be in the position of the leader
I would not be smiling

Rochelle said...

great rule, trust cute more than hot, heh

Becky said...

Hey, everyone!

Petals said...

Joe!!!!!!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks,

It does seem like it has been FOREVER since Survivor was last on.

monty924 said...

That would suck, actually.

Joe in NY said...

Blazer boy is talking too much. Whatever your strategy, buddy, keep it to yourself on Day One.

monty924 said...

This is going to backfire on the leaders.

Petals said...

cool twist right off the bat!

Rochelle said...

completely agree Joe




Joe in NY said...

That borders on unfair - depending on what comes next. They intentionally set up someone as a target by forcing them to be leader and then make a decision that wasn't really a decision.

Rochelle said...

oh geese, I thought I was going to work tonight. NOT

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone!!!! Here we go!!!!!

First impressions???


Penny

monty924 said...

Interesting to see what they all do with it. I'd be selfish!

Joe in NY said...

That is a horribly difficult decision. If your tribemates find out you chose the clue (maybe from the other tribes), you are a target. On the other hand, this game has no loyalty so no one will thank you for the rice.

Rochelle said...

should she have taken it?

Rochelle said...

maybe so early in the game it's a good move though Joe

Rochelle said...

Petals said...

oh Morgan, girl you are NOT all that. Hope you are first to go...

David said...

Hello everyone. Late as usual, =]
Yummmm, stuffed mushrooms and pina coladas to wash them down.

Rochelle said...

Agreed Petals

Rochelle said...

Hi Penny, Hi David

Becky said...

Interesting twist.

Rochelle said...

OK, Now that there is a commercial…. I brought my traditional homemade guar… a VAT of it! Have baked chips for those eating lite and Hint of Lime Tostitos… enough for all

monty924 said...

Hey, David. Grab some shrooms and a pina colada!

It's a catch 22 anyway you look at it. They do that on purpose to test the dynamics of the tribe.

Petals said...

Hey everyone that just got in.

This may be a fun season to watch, with all newbies.

Sharon S said...

I like this new twist. Still don't know who my pool pick is, but I suppose that is good thing in terms of at least making it through the first day!

Paula Bell said...

Hi gang! Newby to the pool, but not following Jackie...so right off the start my guy finds himself outed and finds an idol...nice. Will think of a yummy snack for next show.

Jackie said...

My blog pool pick is the one who decided to share the rice. Hmm.

Petals said...

Monty - Cappy! Wow, I'd almost forgotten him.
We have a few that can cross-over between the 3 tribes (Garrett seems to be (and have) the full package heehee

Jackie said...

Oh ... and hi, everyone! Welcome aboard Paula!

Rochelle said...

well how are you outed? You could have been swimming

Petals said...

Welcome Paula.

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~

Poor Me one Petals!! I'm home!!

Hi to everyone

SueGee on the Left Coast

Joe in NY said...

That was pretty smart by the hottie...

Rochelle said...

Hey Paula!

David said...

I am sooooo glad it is all new people. Sooooo tired of returnee's on all of the shows. They had their 15 minutes, time to give someone else a chance.

Nickelpeed said...

Love the twist.

She just called the two guys old. How funny.

Rochelle said...

such a flimsy bra to have worn to Survivor for 30 days?

Rochelle said...

wow - I'm impressed about that fire!

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, what would have you done? Rice or immunity idol? I don't know, Trish probably should have taken the idol. Who would have known?

Petals said...

*sliding a colada to Sue*

mmmm...good mushrooms, Monty.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, I think him being an ex NBA player, will matter to them. They will not want him to win. Yikes.

monty924 said...

I totally zoned out for a while, lol. Had a you know what.... phone call. Reminder to self, turn OFF the ringer during Survivor. My skills are getting rusty.

Petals said...

Cliff can just pluck the coconuts from the trees, haha

Rochelle said...

good guess cop girl I love it!

Jackie said...

I love how two of the brawn out of the six are from NJ -- Cliff the NBA guy and Tony the Jersey City cop.

Joe in NY said...

I don't understand some of these lies. I mean, who would care if he was a cop.

monty924 said...

Firefighter/EMT, Police Officer... I'm telling you, HE IS CAPPY!

monty924 said...

Smart chick!!!

monty924 said...

I like Cliff, Jackie!

Petals said...

Gary says Garrett is wearing a "wienie bikini"

Rochelle said...

OK, there's my girl Tasha

Becky said...

Hi, Paula. Welcome to the tribe. You will love it here. We don't vote anyone out.

Rochelle said...

I never really know who I have each show till we're WELL into the game, heh

monty924 said...

You watch, she'll build the best shelter and they'll vote her out first.

monty924 said...

David said...

Just noticed this is a 2 hour premiere, not 1. better slow down on the drinks, =D

Nickelpeed said...

Oh great, I got this nuclear engineer as my pool pick and they'll probably vote her off first. :-(

Rochelle said...

HI Becky

Rochelle said...

passing the guar

monty924 said...

There's no slowing down at the blog pool, David. ;-)

Rochelle said...

GUAC I mean….

Rochelle said...

If we find a lampshade is missing, we shall look for it on thine head David. :)

Petals said...

wwwwwwhhhhhhhhhiiirrrrrrrrrr

(blending another batch of pina colada)

Rochelle said...

OK…. 2 hours. I'm pulling out the ice cream sundae bar. I just brought choc, peanut butter, and strawberry. BUT I have hot fudge or caramel sauce, and of course, whipped cream, and cherries. Place your orders.

monty924 said...

I knew what you meant Rochelle, and I love the guac and chips... yummy!

Rochelle said...

WHO IS WATCHING THE OSCARS SUNDAY NIGHT???

Petals said...

Joe - ikr? Why lie about being a cop? I liked him before he lied about it.

lynn1 said...

Rochelle your Guac and chips go great with my chicken chili

Rochelle said...

So many good movies this year, it's going to be a great oscars - not like some years when one movie sweeps it all (zzzz). I try to see them all before the show. Just have Philomena and Hustle to go

Petals said...

Me Rochelle!!!! I'm so excited!

Rochelle said...

It does Lynn. Yours is just perfectly spiced too. Not too tongue flambé!

Rochelle said...

He said why he lied about being a cop - so people would not think he had powers of deduction etc...

monty924 said...

Have to grab more shrooms out of the oven.

Petals said...

me too, Rochelle. All but Philomena & Nebraska. Great movie season :)

monty924 said...

It does, Lynn... the chicken chili is yummy too

SueGee said...

Passing her glass back to Petals for a refill....

I've got dinner in the oven and a load of wash going, so I'm ready to party now!!!

Who has the hottest bod - Their opinion and in yours LOL


SueGee on the Left Coast

Joe in NY said...

I know he said why he lied, Rochelle but the lie proves he's a moron. People tend to side with cops and fireman, not against them. And the down side to being caught in a lie is worse than someone, for some odd reason, figuring a cop is a master strategist.

David said...

He did say (the cop) in the pre-show video that he was not going to play an ethical game but lie, cheat, steal instead.

Petals said...

The dressed the contestants again this season - the tribes are all color-coordinated, not just buffed.

Petals said...

The dressed the contestants again this season - the tribes are all color-coordinated, not just buffed.

Joe in NY said...

He can complain about the brain tribe falling apart, but this is largely a brawn contest.

monty924 said...

Lol, my tribe are a bunch of losers right off the bat. SIGH!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh crap. My pool pick looks like she'll be gone if the Brain tribe loses. Crap, crap, crap...

Joe in NY said...

I think that's a bit too much mocking, Jeff. You put young, brawny studs on one team and a bunch of nerdy brains on another tribe and you're surprised that they can't carry chests and pull carts?

SueGee said...

Are they doing this with two immunities/two tribals tonight?


SueGee on the Left Coast

Rochelle said...

Beauty won one… that's one for all the blonde jokes hehe

Petals said...

That nuclear whatever-she-is chick is only good at standing around. @@

Rochelle said...

Don't know SueGee but hi.

Sharon S said...

There are too many people to watch to stay caught up here by the pool too!

monty924 said...

My tribe first to go to tribal council.

Jackie said...

Sue - judging on the time, I'd say so. But I don't really know.

Rochelle said...

noticed the color Petals - they've done that for qa few season's haven' they? Like we don't notice or???

ANd Penny, who do you have?

Rochelle said...

Get your hot fudge or Caramel Sundaes right here.

Rochelle said...

got time to make them during the commercial. I myself am going for peanut butter ice cream and some hot fudge, nothing else…

monty924 said...

Petals, you would think they could look around and figure out why the producers told them to wear whatever and already know who they'll be playing with to start.

Rochelle said...

should not get rid of Garrett the one guy who has brawn on the brain tribe this early,

monty924 said...

I don't think I like blazer boy already!

SueGee said...

Since I haven't had dinner yet I think I have to pass on the hot fudge...but it is tempting


SueGee on the Left Coast

David said...

I would take a sundae but I am sick of seeing cold stuff this winter. Too much snow. I will just soak in the jacuzzi next to the pool and think warm thoughts instead. =]

Rochelle said...

Penny, I looked and saw it as J"tia. Her honesty might just kick j'tia into gear

Rochelle said...

Sounds like a plan David. We've been buried by snow here this winter. move over, I;ll join you since there are no takers yet :)

Becky said...

What an idiot thing to do... looking at day 29! Get through Day 1 first!

SueGee said...

And I may need to drink something else because the dreaded "Pina Colada" song is buzzing through my brain right now.


SueGee on the Left Coast

Rochelle said...

And now, it's buzzing through mine SueGee… you know how that happens...

Nickelpeed said...

Rochelle, I have the nuclear engineer. My tribe lost. For a bunch of smart guys, they know nothing. If they vote out T'shia, I'm out in the first week. :-(

Rochelle said...

I'm thinking it will be her too Penny… you want to hop on my float and share Tasha from the Brains with me and DKNYNC?

Becky said...

Excuse me, three days.

monty924 said...

Haha, my pool pick is afraid of spiders. I am too!

Petals said...

Dang it, now I'm humming that song too. LOL

Petals said...

I'm torn between the 2 candidates to go. At least David contributes.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know if I like this tribe...at all. Yikes.

Rochelle said...

Hey, even Jeff is getting a little wet

Becky said...

Lordy, I am so glad I'm not there in the rain.

Rochelle said...

I give her credit for trying to work it and save herself here...

Jackie said...

That one guy on Brains looks like he could be Neil Patrick Harris's brother.

Rochelle said...

Me too Becky - I like watching this from the comfort of my living room.

Rochelle said...

True dat Jax

Becky said...

Nice side-step, Spencer.

Rochelle said...

I would not hire Ja'tia in the real world

monty924 said...

Becky, I'm thinking our boy is safe on this one.

Sharon S said...

Tie or David?

Joe in NY said...

They can call them the "brains", but they are more a bunch of asocial idiots. Have you ever seen a tribe make so many bad interpersonal moves in the first week?

Becky said...

What does David do? He rubs me the wrong way.

Becky said...

But brain girl rubs me wrong too. This is a hard tribe to like.

Petals said...

LOL, you're right Joe. The only strategic one is Garrett, with his poker face & brain.
I liked another poker guy in a past season...Monty & Jackie would remember his name - Johnathan?

Becky said...

Monty, I think we are safe on this vote too.

Margo said...

I got the NBA player. woot woot!
Thanks Laurie

monty924 said...

I agree with Joe on the asocial idiots. Not sure if Jonathon was a poker player...

Petals said...

Petals said...

hi margo!

Nickelpeed said...

David owns the Marlins Baseball team.

monty924 said...

Buh-bye blazer boy

Nickelpeed said...

David owns the Marlins Baseball team.

Petals said...

wow. that's rough.

Jackie said...

Becky - He's the president of the Miami Marlins sports team, whatever they play.

lynn1 said...

For the 2nd hour I have Randzzo's King Cake to celebrate Mardi Gras.

Rochelle said...

WOW I'm surprised!

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, I squeeked by that one. I was certain J'tia would go. Wow.

monty924 said...

I like the NO exile island this season.

Rochelle said...

PENNY! Your girl engineered a coup!

Rochelle said...

Hey Margo!!! *Passing guac* and just FYI - Virtual iice cream sundaes custom made here if you are in need...

monty924 said...

What show did he honestly think he was going on????

Petals said...

there is some interesting & beautiful wildlife on this island.

SueGee said...

Ut oh - save me a piece of cake for the end...Is it the one with a ring inside?


SueGee on the Left Coast

Sharon S said...

Monty -- I agree. I was getting tired of redemption island. I'm also tired of Garret (is that his name) whining about wanting be play poker and be served rather than working to survive.

Rochelle said...

whoops

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, she did. I'm glad she at least showed her smart side!!! I really do not like Kass, though.

lynn1 said...

Sue Gee it has a plastic baby in it. The baby represents the baby Jesus. The King represents the 3 Kings who brought gifts

monty924 said...

Did they just put holes in their boat?

SueGee said...

Yummy. I have only been to NO once and it was the week after Mardi Gras.


SueGee on the Left Coast

Nickelpeed said...

What are they starring at? Shouldn't they be building something?

Garret makes me laugh. All her crayons in the crayon box are not bright. LOLOL

lynn1 said...

You can google randazzo's Camellia City Bakery King cakes and learn all about it

Petals said...

we were gifted a King Cake last week, the doc that sent it thought mardi gras had already begun @@
He sends them every year, we have a collection of tiny babies, LOL

(geesh, Morgan - conceited much?)

Sharon S said...

I don't like Lindsey. She is rude and mean.

monty924 said...

SueGee, I've been to NOLA three times and last one the following week after Mardi Gras. I love it too. Lynn, I'll celebrate it with hurricanes for all next week. A day late, but still fun.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, maybe the beauty tribe has the right idea. Chill out. These other tribes want to argue and annoy each other. This will really be interesting.

monty924 said...

Lynn, coordinate with Petals. She loves her Mardi Gras :)))

lynn1 said...

Petals Mardi Gras has been going on for several weeks

Petals said...

My calendar has it starting on March 4? Or is March 4th Fat Tuesday?

Becky said...

I wonder what these people think when they see themself on screen. It amazes me when a tribe gets rid of the stronger player at the beginning.

lynn1 said...

March 4th is Mardi gras day Lent starts March 5

Petals said...

Moonpie, moonpie!!!!

monty924 said...

Mardi Gras is the 4th and Fat Tuesday. I'll have a whole lot of left over Hurricane fixin's for the pool party next week. :))

lynn1 said...

I love moonpies Too!

Joe in NY said...

They could have helped J'Tia a little bit.

SueGee said...

Hurricanes next week!! YEAH


SueGee on the Left Coast

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, this brain tribe needs to pick it up. Geesh. It is bad for them. They may be brains, but they certainly have no brawn at all. At least the other teams have a mixture.

Nickelpeed said...

Good, they've picked up, finally.

Uh, Beauty is in trouble.

Joe in NY said...

What the heck is up with beauty? I don't see how they could possibly be soooo far behind. They are also a very physical group - apparently beauty requires youth. LOL. No old folks on that tribe.

Nickelpeed said...

They are doing something wrong. Wonder what is holding them up?

J'tia needs to pick it up. This is her chance to stay in the game.

Wow, Brawn has brains, too!

Becky said...

Penny, I think your girl will be in trouble if they lose.

Petals said...

J'tia is not good at ... much.

monty924 said...

Come on Brains, UGH

Joe in NY said...

Clearly J'tia thinks she's better at puzzles than she is. Her overconfidence got her into trouble originally. And now her overconfidence cost them a huge lead...

Nickelpeed said...

I wish Jeff would not do that. Brains never met puzzle smart or anything else. Very sad.

Joe in NY said...

I bet Brains regrets that last vote now...LOL

Petals said...

WhooooooHOOO

Nickelpeed said...

Crap....there goes J'tia. :-(

lynn1 said...

The brain tribe isn't going to last very long at this rate

Nickelpeed said...

OOPs, I meant to say, brains never meant they could do puzzles. Yep, bet they are regretting getting rid of David, now. They are a little cocky though. They do not work together at all.

Rochelle said...

Petals said...
J'tia is not good at ... much.

HA!

Becky said...

Penny, if your girl is voted out and you want to stay with the BRAIN??? tribe, you can come up on the raft with Monty and I.
