Survivor: Cagayan - "It's Our Time to Shine" blog party - March 12


Who says reality television isn't educational? I'm certainly learning not only the existence of, but how to spell, several bizarre islands. Tonight's show has one of the blindfold challenges in it. Ah, it's always such fun to watch them crash and tangle! Yeah, I know it's cruel to take delight in the suffering of others. But they're the ones who went on the show, not me!

Lifeguard Laurie, keeper of the blog pool, could use our kind thoughts and prayers on a loss this past week. Nonetheless, here are the latest pool standings:

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

Brains
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, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. However, as always, the real party is in the comments area. Come join us!

The blindfolded challenge is reward. First tribe to finish wins live chickens, second wins a dozen eggs, third place is nothing. Beauty wins first place! Brawn gets second place! Beauty had been leading, but J'Tia blew it by panicking.

Jeremiah found the clue to the idol in with the chicken feed. He read it aloud. Gah, Good think LJ already has the idol.

Woo and others think Cliff should go away. They're talking about throwing the immunity challenge to get rid of him. Woo might need to be convinced to go that far. Woo actually likes Cliff, but they see a threat when the tribes merge.

Immunity has them diving releasing buoys. Must retrieve and toss five buoys into a basket. Oh my, J'Tia screws it up again. I'm not surprised at all.

Beauty tribe wins! Spencer is really doing all the work for the Brains. It's between Cliff, NBA player, and Spencer shooting baskets. Spencer has to keep waiting for the balls to be returned. Brawn wins second place and Immunity, Brains will go to Tribal Council. Of course, that's after Brawn (except for Cliff and Woo) tried to throw the challenge. They (Brains) really do suck. If they vote out Spencer, we'll know their real tribe title is LACK OF Brains.

Tribal Council -- the tally --
J'Tia, Spencer, J'Tia, J'Tia.

Too few brains too late, probably.

Ah, the look at next week shows it's the merge. I'm surprised any of the brains have made it that far after such stupidity and ineptness!

Hi Jackie and special prayers for Lifeguard Laurie.

Hope that snowstorm heading to the NE misses you Jackie.

And Hi everyone. =] Only brought junk food today. Got a bowl of peanut M&M's and a bowl of skittles. Help yourself.

Petals said...

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

Hi everyone. I have no food, only a case of Stella Artois Apple Cider.

Petals said...

Yes, David, prayers for Laurie.

Jackie said...

We're having rain, ending in perhaps a dusting of snow as the temps fall overnight. Today it was 60 degrees!

Petals said...

Jackie - it made news here about a huge fire & collapsed building. Were you able to see it from your place?

David said...

Good, news was talking about 2 feet of snow in NE somewhere, wasn't paying that much attention. lol =]Glad it is finally warming up where you are.

Sharon S said...

Hi all. Laurie, so sorry for your loss.

Rochelle said...

Hey all - almost forgot!!! Jackie, that was a nice shout out to Laurie. Thank you Laurie for putting us all together in the pool!

Sharon S said...

Snow is NNY, VT, NH, Maine. Here in Southern CT, we are only getting rain and an inch of snow. Thankfully!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks.

Mid-blizzard here.

Rochelle said...

OK, I brought chocolate this time… At Christmas time there's this great big box at Trader Joe's and it has the squishiest, smoothest, tastiest chocolates… and I saved a box just for tonight. (taking box top off and passing it)

Petals said...

Nooooo!!! I hate it when they get chickens.

Joe in NY said...

Awful news about Laurie. Prayers for her and her family.

Petals said...

Trader Joe's is awesome!!

Rochelle said...

Wow, 60 in NY? Petals, pass a Stella pretty please

monty924 said...

Hi everyone. Slipping in a little late tonight. :)))

monty924 said...

Ouch

Petals said...

Dang, that tall guy should be on the ground, his crotch is taller than those posts.

David said...

Those chickens don't last long. No one has ever tried to get eggs from them.

Joe in NY said...

It was 60 in Rochester yesterday. It's currently 15 and dropping with a foot and a half of snow today and still snowing. Boy can things change on a dime.

monty924 said...

This is both comical and cruel

Joe in NY said...

How is it possible that brain can't just put the stick on the mat? I don't understand that at all. J'Tia is useless. WTF? She's got to be able to feel the frigging mat.

Sharon S said...

J'Tia is not good under pressure.

Petals said...

Man, that was SO CLOSE.
*sliding a Stella to Rochelle*
The apple is really good.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, that was a good comeback. Who do you blame for the loss?


Hi every one. Got fried chicken here, but munching slowly.

Has anyone heard from Becky?

monty924 said...

J'Tia is a waste of a castaway

Petals said...

Penny, fried chicken, LOL.

Nickelpeed said...

I missed - What's happened to Laurie

Petals said...

OMG, idiots!

Nickelpeed said...

OMG!!??? Holy COW on these women!!!!

Petals said...

Penny, her grandson died.

Nickelpeed said...

Ladies...That is how they kill them...

He's a lot smarter than you girl!!!

Nickelpeed said...

There they go again....ASSUMING Cliff doesn't need money?

Petals said...

I like Woo. I hope he doesn't flip on Cliff

monty924 said...

He's as paranoid as Cappy was!

monty924 said...

Penny, that always gets my goat too. We all could use a million bucks. Grrrr

Petals said...

what a piece of s***, Officer Arrogance.

Nickelpeed said...

I wouldn't trust the guy cop as far as you could throw him.

monty924 said...

These guys are idiots!

Petals said...

He swore on his badge, then said, "that don't mean nuthin to me, I'm here to lie, cheat and steal".
What a tool.

Rochelle said...

Wouldn't you want to just brain Jeff for all the shit he would be shouting at you that totally blows your mental state in these challenges? Sometimes he picks on people and encourages others. SOmeone balancing on one toe for 4 hours in the sun really doesn't need him breaking their concentration do they? What's your vote-- do you like him doing this or not? Does it add to the drama and the gameplay for you?

Nickelpeed said...

How absolutely stupid. I hope Woo can turn this. The man cop needs to go. He really does.

monty924 said...

Of course @@

monty924 said...

Braun could never throw it with the Brains in the mix!

Joe in NY said...

I agree, Rochelle. Jeff can narrate into a mic for us without shouting at the competitors. It would be one thing if he was just describing the action, but he shouts commentary also.

Nickelpeed said...

I hate when they throw challenges. All to get rid of Cliff; I hope it backfires.

Joe in NY said...

Somehow, I don't think Brawn could lose to Brain even if they try to throw it.

Petals said...

J'tia is j'useless

Nickelpeed said...

What is wrong with these people??? UGH!!

monty924 said...

Great minds, Joe ;-)

Joe in NY said...

Joke is that Spencer is the only one on Brain that did anything in this challenge. And if they lose, they'll probably vote him out anyway. LOL

Petals said...

I hate Brawn for doing this.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, these women should be ashamed of themselves. This pisses me off.

monty924 said...

Now I'll say that Brawn deserves to be decimated!

Joe in NY said...

Seriously...Brain is a one-man team. And they totally deserve it. They've done everything wrong.

Petals said...

Look at Bo & Luke Duke, kickin butt

David said...

Almost every thrown competition that I can think of has backfired in the end. geeeesh

Joe in NY said...

Can't wait to see what stupid thing Brain does this time.

Nickelpeed said...

These women are so friggin stupid. For having brains, they are the dumbest people around. You watch these women vote out Spencer. I am so very upset. Dumb, Dumb people.

monty924 said...

Well, there goes my boy Spencer :(((

Sharon S said...

J'Tia needs to go. I hope they don't get rid of Spencer.

Joe in NY said...

lmao. Brawn was trying to throw it and Brain still lost.

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, if they vote out Spencer they better hope for a swap or a merge immediately. There is no way those 3 woman could win a challenge. If it was a coin toss, they'd lose the coin!

Petals said...

WHOOOOOOOO

That is hilarious, they tried to throw it, but you can't lose when J'tia is on the other team. If they don't vote her out, I want them to turn in their brain cards.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, send my prayers to Laurie.

Petals said...

LMAO @ Joe

Joe in NY said...

somehow, they are going to screw this up.

Joe in NY said...

Has anyone found the immunity idol that got left behind?

Nickelpeed said...

Spencer was the person who did SO well. If these women vote him out, they are stupid. Come on women, keep that thought.

Do not go back and say anything to her!!!

Dang it, get rid of J'Tia.

Petals said...

Yeah, they will vote Spencer. They are IDIOTS!!! They are hoping to be absorbed at the merge @@

monty924 said...

These brains are the most brainless ever!

Nickelpeed said...

They need to get rid of J'Tia. Tasha...do not be stupid.

These women are absolutely DUMB!!!

monty924 said...

They're hoping for a tribe swap, but that's a gamble.

Petals said...

Uhm. Bad grammar for a "brain"

Petals said...

THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING.

Nickelpeed said...

Is she joking????

They think they will be absorbed? They will be the first one voted off.

Geesh, ladies, I hope none of these women make it to the end. Even if T'Shia is my pool pick, I want her gone. UGH, UGH!

monty924 said...

Use that BRAIN women

Nickelpeed said...

AND, he DID the entire last challenge almost single handedly.

monty924 said...

YES

Joe in NY said...

I almost can't believe that tribe did something smart...lmao

Sharon S said...

YEs! They should have done this week 1!

monty924 said...

At least she wished them luck. Good sport in the end.

Petals said...

THANK GOD!!!!

Joe in NY said...

I almost wish they had voted Spencer out. The look on the other tribes' faces next week would have been classic! lmao

Nickelpeed said...

Whao!!! Good going!!! Wow, they finally used their brains. Phew~~

Thank you Jackie. Tell Laura I'm praying for her. How so sad for her family and her.

See everyone Sunday. I really hope Becky is okay.

monty924 said...

LOL @ Joe!

David said...

Finally got rid of that worthless.....LOL

That you Jackie for hosting =D

Petals said...

Hey, I'd like to send something to Laurie, an arrangement or plant or a teapot or something. I will leave you guys my email address, and if you'd like to be included or contribute, feel free. No obligations.

jlmcc1031@gmail.com

Nickelpeed said...

Joe, my brother still lives in UpState NY and they're suppose to get 12" tonight.

monty924 said...

I hope they do a tribe swap next week so Spencer can eat something.

Sharon S said...

Shuffle next week, so the remaining brains are the bottom of the totem pole anyway probably.

monty924 said...

Yes!

Thanks Jackie. See all of you fine folks next week and keeping Laurie in my prayers.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh dear. What a change for them. I wonder who goes where.

See all Sunday and next week.

Joe in NY said...

NOOOOOO I don't want a tribe swap! I want to see Brains finish getting decimated.

Joe in NY said...

Yes, Nickel, we're supposed to get another 6-12 inches tonight.

Frankly, the biggest problem is the blowing more than the snow. There is no snow on my front stoop but there is a 4 foot tall drift to the left of my front door. LOL.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Joe in NY said...

See you folks on Sunday.

Thanks for hosting, Jackie.

Sharon S said...

Joe, it is always so nice when the wind does the shoveling for you!

Laurie said...

Thanks for the good thoughts and support.
