Survivor: Cagayan - 'Havoc to Wreak' Blog Party - May 7


Welp, I guess with the title of the episode, it's going to be another Tony-heavy show. His detractors probably won't be too pleased with that. Well, unless he gets the boot, that is. I don't know ... I'm personally glad Tony is on the show this season. The rest of the castaways tend to be a bit lackluster. With the exception of Spencer and Tasha, no one really seems to be seriously playing the game. Woo has his moments, but he's got to bring more to the table. He's a follower.

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 news. As always, the real blog party will be in the comments. Come imbibe and discuss the show with us as it airs!

Survivor fans ready? Let the show begin!

Kass is going up against Tony ... for both real and imagined (misunderstood) reasons. This isn't going to be pretty.

Gah. Tony tells Kass he has a special idol. Thankfully, she doesn't believe him. He hasn't told her its powers, but ...! Sheesh, Tony. Loose lips sink ships.

It's Reward Challenge time -- two teams of three throwing sandbags to destroy the other team's wall, one member rebuilds the wall. Nourishment for the soul -- a trip to a local elementary school to bring supplies, hamburgers and such.

Spencer, Kass and Woo win reward!

Kass has a plan to flush the idol from Tony with Woo and Spencer. Woo is thinking it's time to cut off Tony. We'll see.

Spencer went to Tasha with the plan to split the votes between Tnoy and Trish. Woo told Tony that Kass wants to go for Tasha. Hmmm.

Immunity Challenge time. Will Tasha go for four? Race out, count items at six stations, unlock a lock, break a tile.

Spencer wins immunity!

Tribal Council time ...

Tony does not play an idol.

Tasha, Tony, Trish, Tasha, Tasha.

Argh. I'd prefer Kass going! Tasha was such a strong challenge player and even strategic with the odds against her in numbers.

hi folks

Joe in NY said...

Should be interesting again...

Joe in NY said...

No matter how big an ass Tony is, Kass always annoys me more...

Joe in NY said...

If anyone was being condescending there, it was Kass with her lecture...

Jackie said...

Hey there, Joe! I agree with you about Kass. To me, she's more annoying than Tony.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone. Are we ready for Tony? LOL

Jackie said...

Where is everybody?

Nickelpeed said...

I'm hoping Kass is next. If she's smart, she'll find someone and stay with them, but she won't, so vote her out!!

Nickelpeed said...

Keep it up Kass...take the sights off of Spencer. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Tony actually sort of complimented her, saying she was usually up early.

Nickelpeed said...

Becky doesn't feel well. I'm not sure about anyone else.

Lorraine said...

Jeff Probst was on The Talk show today and said that this year's Survivor is the most popular ever. I'm not sure where he got that information but I'd say he is wrong!!

Nickelpeed said...

I finally got my voice back after 4 days. Went to the doctor yesterday and she thinks it's allergies gone wild. My doctor of 10 years moved to Ohio State Medical. Now, I have to start over with another one. My eyes and ears hurt so bad. She upped my mg of my allergy medicine. :::Sigh:::

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Joe, Penny and other late arrivals.

Penny is correct. I picked up a terrible virus at River Ridge. I swear a nursing home is as bad a day care with germs flying around.

monty924 said...

Late but I've been watching while doing laundry. Kass!!! omg

Sharon S said...

Kass is condescending. Tony is obnoxious and cocky.

monty924 said...

I really don't like Tony, but that was smart. Make them try to vote him out and he'll play the special idol. I don't know if they believe him or not, lol!

Sharon S said...

P.S. Hi everyone -- late because I almost forgot! Shocked at myself...

Joe in NY said...

Kass has no idol. Therefore, there's really not a lot of point in her pursuing that argument. She would have been much better served by just letting it go. Her social game sucks.

monty924 said...

Joe, I think her game sucks period.

Joe in NY said...

the problem with copying someone in a two person race is that you'll always be behind the other team...

Becky said...

I went to the nursing home today for the first time since last Thurs. That is the longest I have not gone to see her. Usually it is every day.

Tony is a bully. I do not like bullys.

Ah, not impressed with the Brain doing the puzzle.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, I do not want Tony to win. Darn

Becky said...

YEA!

monty924 said...

Yay, for my boy Spencer and Woo!

Sharon S said...

I feel bad for Tasha having to stay behind with those two.

Nickelpeed said...

That was great team work with Kass and Spencer. Who would have thought.

Nickelpeed said...

I know that had to have really bothered you, Becky. You usually see momma every day. How are momma and Tommy?

Joe in NY said...

I continue to be a little surprised at how lazy the women are. I mean, we've often had the young people seeming a bit lazy, but Kass and Trish aren't that young. I kind of expect more from them.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm still hoping Tony targets Kass. She is so annoying. It won't even matter if Spencer tries to change Woo and Kass's mind about Tony because he has 2 idols. It almost guarantees him to the final 4.

Joe in NY said...

Becky, those were BOTH "brains" doing the puzzle...

monty924 said...

Love Woo!

Nickelpeed said...

This is funny.

Joe in NY said...

I have a feeling Kass is going home. She's getting a lot of attention.

monty924 said...

At least Kass provided comic relief.

Nickelpeed said...

Says you, Kass...we'll see...lol

monty924 said...

This will come back to bite Spencer in the A$$. Tony gets wind of it and Spencer is gone.

Joe in NY said...

Kass is an effing idiot. Trying to engineer a 3 way split??? It requires her to coordinate EVERYONE'S vote.

Petals said...

Hi everyone. Late again. Please don't vote me off the island LOL
Woo is awesome! *hearts*

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Woo....play the game. He's not going to change his mind. He's with Tony all the way. He's hard to read.

Joe in NY said...

Woo has been Tony's staunchest ally. Even if he flips, you've got to somehow lie to Trish to get her to vote the way you want, lie to Tony to get him to vote the way you want...too hard. Easier to arrange a 4-2 vote against Tony

Nickelpeed said...

I agree Monty. This will come back and bit him. They do not realize how much power that one idol has. Tony is really guaranteed a spot in the Final 4. If Woo tells Tony, it will definitely be Spencer or Kass...hopefully Kass.

Joe in NY said...

I wonder if the special idol could be voted after a revote...

monty924 said...

Not smart, Woo!

Nickelpeed said...

Tony is so smart...to bad he's such a jerk. Woo, you are not smart at all.

Petals said...

Is anyone (Jackie? Monty? Joe?) an expert on the rules of Survivor? Remember the "one luxury item"? Well, the past few seasons, I've noticed that they are all shaved. The chicks underarms. The guys mustaches, etc...
Plus the castaway wardrobe being color coordinated?
Have those rules changed? Apparently razors are now allowed?

Joe in NY said...

Woo is not that bright...how the heck is Spencer going to vote Tasha off when she was his only real ally...

Jackie said...

I don't think they all shaved. One of the girls going to the Ponderosa complained about her armpit hair. I don't believe they've had their own personal luxury items for a few years now. They used to mention it in the bios, no longer.

Nickelpeed said...

I have a feeling the special idol will be used tonight. I wonder if they will target Woo now? I hope not. I'd rather see Kass go.

Petals said...

Nooo! Woo no go!

Joe in NY said...

The guys could shave with the machete, Petals.

Wouldn't a good underarm wax last for 30 days? I mean at least enough so it wouldn't be visible on TV

Petals said...

ditto Penny!

Nickelpeed said...

Didn't a group of them last year, who went on a special excursion, bring back a razor? I thought that happened a few times???

Joe in NY said...

It's interesting that Trish is Kass's second target...

Petals said...

Uhm..maybe. That could be the case with the chicks. But do you really think the guys are shaving their mustaches with a machete? How would the sharpen it? (not trying to come-off as contrary)

Joe in NY said...

OMG! Kelly from SEASON #1 still holds the record.

monty924 said...

Tony's guaranteed final four with his two idols unless he does something stupid and gives one to Trish tonight.

Joe in NY said...

Petals, it doesn't have to be that sharp to do a shave. I've seen guys in past season seem to be shaving with it. YOu just sort of drag it across.

Petals said...

Ouchie, Joe! But OK, point taken. But I still think they maybe are allowed razors.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I hope Spencer, Tasha or Woo win

Joe in NY said...

I like Woo, but he is a bit of a simpleton...

monty924 said...

I couldn't do this after 30 days.

Joe in NY said...

Woo is having the most fun, anyway.

Joe in NY said...

fatigue is going to be a huge issue soon. That's a long run through the sand every time.

Nickelpeed said...

Who do you all think???

Nickelpeed said...

Tasha I bet

Nickelpeed said...

Wooohoooooooooo

monty924 said...

WooHoo!!! Go Spencer, GO!

Nickelpeed said...

Don't let Tasha go, make it Kass, please, please.

Joe in NY said...

Well, tribal should be a lot of fun.

Nickelpeed said...

Good for Spencer. I did not I would like him, but I do. He's got a quirky sense of humor. For Tasha and him to be there this long, who would have thought the Brains would even be there now?

Sharon S said...

I sure hope Tasha doesn't go. Hope it is Trish or Kass, since it can't be Tony.

Petals said...

Oh no, anyone but Woo.

So, how is everyone doing this week?

monty924 said...

It could be anyone of the three now. Tashia, Kass or Woo. Tony isn't voting Trish out and who knows what they will do now. Or what Kass will do is more to the point.

Joe in NY said...

Tony is just way smarter than the rest of them...

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know, I think Woo will vote with Tony.

And, Tony wins no matter what. He's got two Idols to protect him.

monty924 said...

Omg, here she goes!!!

Joe in NY said...

You just KNOW that Kass is going to screw this up. She is such a dumb ass, but she thinks she's just all that...

Joe in NY said...

I would love this to boomerang on Kass, though I don't see how...

Nickelpeed said...

I can not stand her. You can not trust her. If it were between Tony or her, he'd get my vote. What a rat.

Sharon S said...

Not Tasha :(

monty924 said...

Now I think it will be Tashia. SAD :((

Petals said...

Tash came a long way, against many odds...

Petals said...

(off topic: watch "Labor Day", such amazing performance from Kate, and an interesting love story)

Nickelpeed said...

It's either really hot and humid here, or it's raining, or they are sweating, they sure are shiny.

monty924 said...

It's Tashia

Nickelpeed said...

I would love to see the movie "Labor Day." I like both Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin

Joe in NY said...

Tony is right. If you are an alliance, no point in flushing the idol. He can't play it in the final 4 anyway. And if you think he has 2 idols, there really is no point in flushing at all.

Sharon S said...

I think Wu voted Tasha :(

Nickelpeed said...

It it's not Trish, I will be so extremely surprised. How sad. I hope I'm wrong.

monty924 said...

Dammit, Kass!!!

Joe in NY said...

They were all just so sure it was going to work. That smug look on Kass...

Nickelpeed said...

Crap...see Kass and Woo voted with Tony. Crap

Nickelpeed said...

Ooops, I meant if it's NOT TASHA, I'll be surprised.

monty924 said...

If I wasn't so mad, I'd give mad props to Kass for that. I think I officially dislike her more than Tony now. UGH

Becky said...

That Tony is harder to get rid of than a cockroach.

Thanks for hosting, Jackie.

Sharon S said...

Drat. Now I'm hoping Wu or maybe Spencer can pull off a win. I won't enjoy it much if it comes down to Tony, Kass, and the non-entity whose name I can't remember right now!

Nickelpeed said...

They all think taking Tony to the final will be in their advantage, but it won't. Crap

Sharon S said...

Have a good rest of the week everyone.

Thanks Jackie for inviting us in.

Jackie said...

Woo is basically a follower. If Kass and Tony both vie against each other at the end, both are annoying ... it would be down to who played a better game. That would be Tony, for sure.

Joe in NY said...

Kass....my God, she's going to be insufferable thinking she won something there. But she has undermined Spencer again, undermined Tasha AGAIN!, demonstrated to Woo that she wasn't loyal. What the hell...

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you for hosting, Jackie. Appreciate it. See everyone Sunday. I'll be working next Wednesday.

Sharon S said...

Tony had a lot of luck with idol finding though.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. See all of you fine folks next week.

Jackie said...

Tony just looked in the kind of places where they've hidden them in the past. He worked to find them.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Joe in NY said...

Supposedly Trish was the most popular with the jury. She could win if she makes final 3.

Tony's big problem here is who he wants to sit with at the end. I think he needs to take Kass and Woo. He can beat (maybe) Woo by painting him as the follower. Kass might be the only person who's stabbed more people in the back than Tony.
