Survivor: Cagayan - 'Straw That Broke the Camel's Back' Blog Party - May 14


Well, this show is getting down to the wire, too. Will Tony not mess totally up and blow his chance of making it to the end? With his idols, he should be sitting pretty. But, with his cockiness ... who knows? They might just keelhaul him.

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 -- come join us!

The latest blog pool standings from Lifeguard Laurie:
Pool 
Kass McQuillen -Delee, MikesGirl
Spencer Bledsoe - Becky and Monty924
Tony Viachos - Lynn1, Zoetawny
Trisha Hegarty - Jackie
Woo Hwang - Laurie, SueGee

Jury
Sarah Lacina
Morgan McLeod
LJ McKanas
Jeremiah Wood
Jefra Bland
Tasha Fox

Survivor fans ready?

Reward Challenge -- Dive into mud, scrape off into bucket, most mud in ten minutes wins. Winner wins hot pizza delivery.

Tony's bucket is overflowing with mud -- no one else is close. He can choose one person to join him. He chose Trisha. He thinks she needs it the most. (He's probably right; she's SO skinny!)

Tony wants to convince the others that he has the special idol and its power is that it can be used by the final three. In reality, both idols he has have to be used when there are five left.

He tried to make Kass comfortable by telling her Woo told him that she plotted against him. She went to Woo. Now there's a kerfuffle going on.

Immunity Challenge -- Untangle braided rope, release key, build staircase, solve sliding puzzle.

Despite a huge lead, Tony blew it on the puzzle. Spencer wins Immunity once again!

Ah, Trish lights into Kass about her passive aggressive game. Spencer and Kass think they need to get Woo on their side. Woo went to Kass and told her and Spencer that he will vote out Trish. Meanwhile, Tony eavesdrops on that deal. Uh-oh.

At Tribal, it's actually funny as they trade barbs at each other. Tony brings out his special idol, but doesn't explain its powers. Spencer votes Trish. Trish votes Kass. Tony is mum on playing the idol, but then plays the regular idol.

Trish, Kass, Trish, Trish.

My blog pool pick is snuffed.

Dang. Even Tony voted out Trish. He knew she was the target and probably thinks he'd rather sit in the finals with unlikable Kass.

I'm going to miss Tasha

woo is an idiot

Joe in NY said...

Kass is such an idiot sometimes...er, most of the time.

Becky said...

Hey, Lynn. Looks like old Tony will go all the way.

lynn1 said...

Kass is an idiot too

Jackie said...

HI, guys! Woo is a bit of a dim bulb, but likable. Kass is an entirely different story. I don't think she's dumb, but she has no social game brights at all.

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, if anyone but Tony wins, it will be a bit unjust. He's run the game from the beginning. It's very reminiscent of Boston Rob's run. The only difference is that you can see why people think that Tony is like Russell and may not win a jury vote. I still can't figure out how those star struck girls thought they were going to beat Rob in the jury vote.

Petals said...

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

Hi.

lynn1 said...

I think he will be in the final 3 but I don't know if he will win. he is my pool pick but I don't particularly like him

Joe in NY said...

I don't know, Jackie. Some of Kass's moves are real head scratchers. She definitely lacks some social game, but she also does odd things like blowing up the Brains, keeping J'Tia around, trying to backdoor Tony with WOO of all people...

Petals said...

For weeks I have been trying to remember from where I know Trish!
I finally have it - she looks like the mummy of Ramses!

Joe in NY said...

This reward borders on cruel. I'm not sure I'd even want to win it. You can make a lot of enemies in a hurry. It's not even just that they didn't get the reward, but they have to sit there and watch you eat it. MEAN!

Petals said...

Yeah, Joe. Maybe they can all leave camp & not have to be right there.

Joe in NY said...

Lynn, I don't know if he'll win or not, but there is no one more deserving. He's annoying and a bit of an ass, but he's run this game ever since the beginning.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals,

Jackie said...

It does make you wonder how closely some of these folks have watched the show. I could figure out strategy if I were there ... it would be the rest that killed me. Or, I'd just break down. But I think I could figure out who to work against whom.

Petals said...

Tony has played the game, yes. But he's made enemies of so many, maybe even his cop friends back home.

Joe in NY said...

See, what is Kass doing? Tony wants to take her to the end. What the heck is the point in trying to undermine Tony? She's not going to convince anyone of anything they don't know about Tony. ON the other hand, she risks turning Tony and the rest of her group turning against her.

Petals said...

Yeeeks...her stomach looks like...a cadaver.

lynn1 said...

Joe I agree Tony has played the best game but I don't like him or his bully attitude. I don't think any of these folks are worth cheering for.

Petals said...

HA! Case in point of Kass lacking all social skills. No finesse at all. @@

Becky said...

It is very stupid of Cass to even think that anyone would vote for her over Tony. No way. He is out playing everyone.

lynn1 said...

Petals, Trish does look like a mummy! LOL

Petals said...

lynn, me too! This season sux, IMO

Hey girl, what do you think of the Draft??? I hate that AJ went to Cincinnati, but I'm glad that he will get to SPANK Johnny Masengill one day.

Joe in NY said...

But all you're saying, Petals, is that Tony played the best but could be undone by a bitter jury. It's still almost impossible to make a case for anyone else being even remotely deserving. I mean, what have any of them done? Kass made a big jump early on, but that's her only real move. Spencer has negotiated hard for his own survival, but his continued presence there is more a result of Tony using him for a couple blindsides than anything Spencer himself did. If anyone else wins, it'll be Natalie and Russell all over again.

Jackie said...

I'm enjoying this season, for the most part.

Joe in NY said...

lynn, I'm not saying we should cheer for Tony. I'm just saying it's hard to argue that anyone but Tony deserves to win.

Joe in NY said...

I agree, Jackie. I think it has been a very entertaining season. A lot of twists and crazy tribals.

Petals said...

Hey Jackie - what were the Bs? Brains Braun, Beauty? Was there a 4th?

You guys tell me if my avatar doesn't look exactly like Trish!

lynn1 said...

Petals, I thought it was great that Mr. football went so late in the first round, it gave me great pleasure to see him so antsy. I wish things had worked out better for A J

monty924 said...

Late but I made it. Hi folks!

Joe in NY said...

Really, isn't Kass undermining her own game here? Best case scenario, she gets Trish out, but she still wants Tony at the end. WTF? ON the flip side, Tony could easily talk Woo into tossing out Kass instead which would cement Woo with Tony.

lynn1 said...

your avatar is the spitting image of Trish

Petals said...

do any of you guys think Kass would beat Tony in the end? I don't think so. Spencer, maybe! Woo? Hmm.

lynn1 said...

Hi monty

monty924 said...

Kass can't beat any of the ones left, Petals. The jury at Ponderosa hates her.

Petals said...

Well, Lynn, AJ finished school and has his degree! So at least he has that. :)
I loved every minute of his sweating it in the corner, chugging his water, wringing his hands. Then that video surfaced, taken from a neighboring table: Show JM standing up, saying "this is NOT what I wanted" before hugging his Dad. Hilarious!

Petals said...

hey Mendy!

Petals said...

C'mon Woo! Win something!

lynn1 said...

Hell I might as well cheer for Tony. Hr is my pool pick and he is going win the whole shebang.

monty924 said...

Come on Spencer!

Petals said...

OK, this is gonna sound racist, but it isn't meant to be, you guys will understand: Asians are supposed to be really smart, what happened to Woo?

Joe in NY said...

Kass, always the puzzle master...

Petals said...

Winner of immunity: TONY (natch)

Joe in NY said...

I haven't done a slide puzzle since I was like 8 years old. LOL. If I was ever going to go on Survivor, I guess I'd have to practice.

monty924 said...

YES!!!

Becky said...

WTG, Spencer!

lynn1 said...

WTG Spencer

Petals said...

Realy? GO SPENCER!

monty924 said...

I love it... my boy's in the final 4! Woohoo

Petals said...

Hey Jackie? When does BB start? Oh, did you see this?

YAY Spencer!!!

Joe in NY said...

Petals, how can that NOT be racist? LOL

lynn1 said...

I have never been good at puzzles. I never even enjoyed jigsaw puzzles as a kid.

Jackie said...

Petals - Beauty Brains Brawn

Joe in NY said...

This should be interesting. Didn't the previews show Trish going off on Kass?

~~Silk said...

Am I wrong, or has Brain won the past six or more IIs?

Petals said...

Joe - you know. I meant it in appreciation & admiration of Asians. But Woo...he seems to lack that trait. He's sweet, tho.

Petals said...

Petals said...

Geeminy, sorry. Look who is NOT very intelligent - Petals HAHA.

Sorry all my posts are duplicating.

monty924 said...

I think Tony will cut Trish's throat!

Petals said...

Thanks Jackie. I thought there were 4 Bs, been racking my (withered) brain all afternoon trying to think of the 4th.

Petals said...

Trish is right about Kass...

Joe in NY said...

This is why Kass's "strategy" was nonsensical.

Petals said...

Wow, Trish called Kass ugly???
Pot, meet Kettle (Skeletor, HAHAHHAHA)

Trish could be thrown under a Hotwheel bus, she's so emaciated!

monty924 said...

Woo just looks like a dear in headlights most of the time. At least to me he does.

monty924 said...

*deer

lynn1 said...

Woo is easy on the eyes but there is not a lot in between his ears

monty924 said...

Long term??? That was two votes ago. There is no more long term! Duh

Petals said...

Aww, Woo is deer in both ways, LOL

Petals said...

Cool, tho. Woo's hair is truly blue/black. Neato.

Joe in NY said...

Kind of have to expect Woo to go home. The "swing vote" almost always goes home, especially when they declare themselves to be that.

Petals said...

Hasn't anyone figured-out to go to the water & whisper? Don't they know that Tony is shrub-sneaking around?

Petals said...

Great point Joe!

Sharon S said...

Is this Tony's last chance to use his idols?

Becky said...

If Whoo wants any chance at all he needs Trish gone.

Petals said...

"Rail" having a double-meaning, I'm sure. LOL

monty924 said...

That was good, Trish1 :)))

Sharon S said...

Oh, I hope he doesn't give the idol to Trish

Petals said...

Is Woo from CA? That would explain why he sounds like Jeff Spiccoli.

monty924 said...

This tribal is hilarious

monty924 said...

See he did cut her throat

Sharon S said...

Wow, was Trish really surprised? Her eyebrows went up like she wasn't expecting it!

Becky said...

Trish needs to eat!

monty924 said...

OMG

lynn1 said...

WOwzer

Becky said...

I think that only Spencer and Whoo stand a chance in the finals with Tony.

lynn1 said...

Best tribal in a long time

Becky said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie.

monty924 said...

That was great!!! Tony could have given Trish the idol and she would have been safe and Kass would have gone home. Something tells me that Tony does want a goat at the end with him and for him that is Kass.

lynn1 said...

with Trish on the jury cheerleading for Tony I would bet it is a done deal for him to win

Petals said...

LMAO!! Bye Ramses

~~Silk said...

How can anyone say Kass hasn't "played"? She's played as hard as Tony, just in a very different way.

Jackie said...

Petals - Beauty Brain Brawn and Bonkers?

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. See everyone at the finale. Go Spencer Go!

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. good night everyone

Anonymous said...

Yay! Just checking in. Won't be here Sunday, either. Yay, for Spencer!


Penny

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

Silk, it isn't that she hasn't played... it's the fact that everyone on the jury has nothing good to say about how she's played it. They don't respect her game!

~~Silk said...

Re Kass - jury doesn't respect her game , but more often than not, they end up respecting a game that gets you to the end.

Teodora said...

I also thing that tony should win. But jury always make some stupid decisions.
