Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Blog Party - October 1


Well, I wasn't too upset about last week's cast out castaway even though she was my blog pool random pick! I'm sorry, but I just don't see why the producers and casting are pushing the TAR "twinnies" so much. There are some folks on these shows that people love to hate ... but the twinnies just tend to bring about a heck of a lot of dislike. They're annoying.

Anyway ... as tonight's episode 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 in on the fun!

First, an update on the pool. As Lifeguard Laurie promised, she reassigned the first boot's pool picks (as we barely got to know them in the premiere, although I feel I knew Nadiya too well already) --

COYOPA
Josh = crob61, Rochelle, Jackie
Alec = Karen in Case, Merrilee
Val = Brenda, Nickelpeed
Wes = Buzzmaam, ORKMommy, sanra
John R = Cheryl NC, MikesGirl, Terry in TX
Jaclyn = CYW Coleman, rbennie
Dale = Brian, Margo
Baylor = Glenn, maquinn78, Sharon S

HUNAHPU
Kelley = Babs Dud, ML, Russ
Missy = Ed in Ohio, Monty924, Sharon N
Keith = Donna in FL, PDX Granny
Jon M = Donna in Alabama, Laurie
Julie = Donna NY, meb
Reed = David, Kathy, Lynn1
Jeremy = Becky, Nana in the NW
Drew = Delee, Petals, SueGee
Natalie = Jennasmom, Kelsey NY

Survivor fans ready?

Josh confessed to Baylor that he voted for her to game to cover up their alliance. Um. Okay. Not the brightest of moves.

Hunahpu has lost their flint. Jon is the one who seems to have lost it.

Reward Challenge has them balancing a ball on a pole through obstacles and then rolling them at a target. The prize is fishing gear. It's John Rocker vs. his gal Julie.

JULIE wins! John goes to Exile Island! She chooses Jeremy to go with him.

Hunahpu wants to trade their beans for a new flint, but keep the fishing gear. All Jeff would offer them is a new flint in exchange for the fishing gear. They took the deal -- they need fire.

Natalie keeps crying because Nadiya is gone.

John drew the blank clue on Exile. Jeremy, although he knows who Rocker is and his racist remarks of the past, shows Rocker his clue to the idol. He wants Rocker to help protect his wife.

Immunity Challenge -- Jeremy and John return to their tribes. It's knocking their opponent off a small platform with a padded doohickey into the water.

Heh. John Rocker got beaten by a girl earlier and now by another Jon.

Hunahpu wins Immunity! (Again.)

Whoa! Rocker found the idol from the clue that Jeremy told him. He thinks that Val also has an idol. He tells her there will be a split vote for her and Baylor. Val says (to us) that she and Jaclyn will also vote Baylor, so no problem. Josh is suspicious.

Tribal Council time, not happy campers at all. The tally: Val, Baylor, Val, Baylor, Val, Baylor, Baylor, Val. It's a tie. Revote time.

Baylor, Val, Val, Val, Val.

Rocker is upset that she didn't play her idol. Well, that's because HE has the idol she should have found!

Hi Jackie and everyone who comes tonight. I get to party this week.

I brought breadsticks with cheese and garlic sauce and marinara for dipping. Lots of red wine over at the bar too.

Nickelpeed said...

~~~SPLASH~~~ Please don't lose the flint!!!

Thank you Jackie, appreciate you doing this!!!

Penny

Petals said...

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

Hey Ms Jackie & everyone! Happy October!

monty924 said...

You know the Boston cop will sniff out the hinky vote!

lynn1 said...

Hi Jackie and everyone

Petals said...

I brought 2 loaves of fresh-baked pumpkin*walnut bread.

Nickelpeed said...

I would love to see one time at least the women stay together.

Penny

monty924 said...

Mmm, pumpkin bread. Yummy!

Hey Petals, Penny and Lynn

Petals said...

Drew is my guy. I like him...so far.
John, not so much. He reminds me too much of Caleb. Next thing you know, he'll be claiming to have invented the color blue.

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, the pumpkin bread sounds great!

Not good to lose the flint....not good.

Penny

lynn1 said...

Since Nadiya got voted out I was reassigned to Reed and I have no idea who he is

Sharon S said...

I'm starting to wonder if any of these castaways have it what it takes to survive!

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, are you talking about the guy they just showed losing the flint?

I think he spells his name Jon. The other John, is John Rocker.

monty924 said...

What is it with the flint this season? Did they all read the same book on sabotage?

monty924 said...

Hey Sharon S

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. Sending out email on Momma's fall Sat.

Petals said...

Penny - yeah, thanks. I don't like Jon. I love John, tho. LOL

lynn1 said...

I have Caramel apples covered in chocolate. I sliced them up into nice sized chunks. My friend Frenchie makes them to sell at the local farmers market but she sells them to me on the side.They are decadent and wonderful

monty924 said...

I like my pool girl. Missy seems like she will go far in the game. Sort of the MOM of the tribe.

Sharon S said...

Hi Monty...and everyone else!

I'm kind of feeling bad for Natalie now. For a minute anyway.

Petals said...

I am unmoved.

Nickelpeed said...

Lynn, Reed is the gay guy on the tribe with the blue band.

Petals said...

Vote her out next.

Petals said...

Vote her out next.

Petals said...

Lynn- wow, perfect October dessert!

Sharon S said...

I had two students rock paper scissors for topic choice yesterday, and two kids matched 6 times in a row. I had to have them sub in other people from the group, because I thought it was going to go on forever if I didn't!

Becky said...

Hummm, the food sounds wonderful. Pass me a plate, please.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang. His height realy hurts him. She's really focused.

Petals said...

what was the chosen topic, Sharon?

monty924 said...

Why did he volunteer himself? @@

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All!

lynn 1, Caramel apples covered in chocolate?! Never had one. Sounds yummy!

Nickelpeed said...

I'd beat his butt for saying that!!!

Petals said...

*passing plate to Becky*

How many pool-partiers did we lose in the BB finale?
I lose track of who is BB, Survivor or both?

monty924 said...

Hi Becky. Lynn, these apples are delish.

Petals said...

aw man, I don't want John to go to Exile.

Sharon S said...

Petals -- they were fighting over who got to focus on the Southern Colonies vs. the Middle Colonies in analyzing some evidence. They both wanted Southern... because there were fewer colonies, of course.

Petals said...

aww, fun topic, tho.

Becky said...

Good, they don't have to compete to get back in the game.

Joe in NY said...

HI folks.

How dumb do you have to be to lose your flint?

Petals said...

Hey, you guys heard? Donny is engaged now, and Evel Dick has HIV.

monty924 said...

LOL... this has to be a first

Nickelpeed said...

LOL. That's hilarious.

Penny

Joe in NY said...

When was negotiating ever part of Survivor...?

Petals said...

{{joe}} oh ye of the furry floors.

Becky said...

Dumb, dumb, dumb!

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh! Petals, Dick is HIV? Well, all those years of using drugs has caught up with him. Sad.

And, Congrats to Donny. That's wonderful news!!!

Penny

Sharon S said...

Petals, I hadn't heard either of those bits of news. Happy for Donny!

Joe in NY said...

It's not the fur on the floor, Petals, it's the urine! LOL

Becky said...

Wonderful news about Donny and sad news about Evil Dick. No one deserves HIV.

Sharon S said...

Did they say how advanced the HIV is?

Joe in NY said...

Yesterday, I got home a little late. Baby Girl was so excited dancing around my feet and jumping at my legs. Then I looked down and realized she was peeing all around me. LOL. Nothing quite says "Welcome Home" like peeing on your feet! :)

lynn1 said...

glad to hear about Donny So sorry about Evil Dick

Jackie said...

The blood tests they did for BB came back with the result. That's why Dick left the show abruptly.

Joe in NY said...

HIV is more of a chronic condition these days rather than a death sentence. What's the source on that? Did he announce it himself?

monty924 said...

Hope that's just an untrue rumor about ED. I still think he was awesome in his season. Just me though :(((

Joe in NY said...

Jackie, are you talking about when he self-ejected?

lynn1 said...

You can see a picture of The chocolate covered caramel apples here

monty924 said...

Just saw your post Jackie. Still sad to hear it but I agree with Joe. It is much more treatable today than it was in the first few decades of the disease. Prayers for Evel Dick.

Petals said...

Yes, Dick announced it himself. He is currently on the VH1 show "Couples Therapy+".

Both announcements are legit.

Ahhh - Joe - it's a long battle, but you'll eventually win.

Ed in Ohio said...

I don't see how any of the jury would give John Rocker the $$ if he was in the finale, because of his baseball career.

Nickelpeed said...

I think this will come back to bite both Jon and John.

Jon for losing the flint and John Rocker for his past.

Yikes. Smart of Jeremy. But, how will his wife feel?

Penny

monty924 said...

It turned out to be a good thing for Rocker to go to Exile.

Petals said...

Thank you for posting that link Lynn!

I happen to LOVE John Rocker. I happen to agree with all the stuff he said. I am not evil, you guys know that.
So I hate it a LOT that everyone is focusing on that side of him.

Becky said...

Joe,sorry, but I had to laugh at the "showers from heaven".

monty924 said...

Petals, Nadiya (SP?) loved him on her tribe.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know about that Monty. His tribe talked about him and mentioned his past. Jeremy's wife did not look too happy. They could send John packing if they lose this challenge.

Penny

Kathy said...

Hello Everyone, I am late and trying to catch up

monty924 said...

Previews looked like this gets brutal between Jon and John

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, John Rocker should have gotten him.

Petals said...

Hi Kathy!


C'mon BIG JOHN!!!

monty924 said...

makes up for losing the flint, LOL

monty924 said...

Mind games

Sharon S said...

Seems like Reed's team doesn't know who he is either.

Petals said...

Missy needs to GO!

Nickelpeed said...

Dang Hunapu is doing well.

Petals said...

Sharon - who is Reed?

David said...

Hello everyone =)

Aways late and have to catch up on the reading.
Saw interview with Donny also saying that they are going to have him dress up in a bunch of outfits on the B&B representing all the different things the HG's thought he was. Doctor, Ninja, Prof, etc. Sounds like fun.

monty924 said...

Well, my girl is safe tonight

Petals said...

whooooo!!!! John is safe!

monty924 said...

Hi Kathy and David

Nickelpeed said...

Well, let's see who they vote out. Will they get rid of John? He's big, but he's already lost two challenges. This will be really interesting. I wonder what Val will do?

Penny

monty924 said...

Not necessarily, Petals. he's going to tribal

Sharon S said...

Petals - I think he's Josh's boyfriend. One of his team mates rooted for Josh instead of Reed.

Petals said...

hi David.

I wonder if Evel Dick's dx has any play in to the reason that he & Dani are so estranged? I mean, clearly, he put some of his BB winnings into his ARM...then abandoned her.

Nickelpeed said...

Petals - Reed is on Hurapu. He's the tall dark haired thin guy. His boyfriend is Josh, the reddish haired guy.

Penny

Joe in NY said...

OK, why would you like and claim to have TWO idols? That has to be on the Mt. Rushmore of stupid Survivor lies...

Nickelpeed said...

I think Dale got the idol, but he doesn't know it's the idol. Remember he found something on the well?

Penny

monty924 said...

LOL! Great!

Petals said...

YAY, Big John finds the idol!

Nickelpeed said...

Why show that he has it? Doesn't that put a target on him?

John do not be a rat. You promised. Dang. Don't be stupid.

Penny

Petals said...

oh, thanks Penny. I was thinking he was famous or something.

lynn1 said...

Penny I wondered about Dale finding an idol.I saw he found something but I wasn't sure if it was an idol or not

Nickelpeed said...

This is a way to get yourself in trouble. This guy, Josh is very, very intuitive and smart.

Penny

monty924 said...

And the worm turns

Petals said...

Big John gonna honor his promise to Jeremy.

Betcha a gagillion dollars that it won't be reciprocated.

Petals said...

Yikes - Frankie flashbacks

Petals said...

Just get RID of Val, clearly the bad seed.

lynn1 said...

I think Val is gone

Joe in NY said...

How many idols does Rocker think there are? I mean he found one and he believes Val has 2 more????

Becky said...

Val is the stronger of the two. I think Baylor's mom stopped trying after she hurt Baylor.

Nickelpeed said...

Not Val...no...nooooo

monty924 said...

If Val goes, Big John could be in trouble with Jeremy if he makes the merge.

Nickelpeed said...

John Rocker - SHAME ON YOU!!!

Sharon S said...

That was interesting.

Joe in NY said...

She was kind of done in by her own stupid lie. Otherwise dumb ass Rocker doesn't make that silly split vote plan.

monty924 said...

Big John is in trouble with Jeremy now...

Petals said...

This is gonna be an interesting season!

YAY - CYA Val!

Petals said...

Hopefully, Jeremy will be gone before the merge.

Becky said...

Joe, I agree. Her lie did her in and sent her home.

lynn1 said...

I doubt I will be here on Friday Night for TAR.

Joe in NY said...

Not Rocker's fault. Val sunk herself. The only thing dumber than that lie is the fact that Rocker (and others?) believed it!!! There's usually only one Idol in play per tribe at this point.

Nickelpeed said...

There goes my pool person! Jeremy is going to target Julie now and not be nice about it.


Penny

Petals said...

Thanks Jackie!

I miss seeing you guys several times a week. :(

ciao xoxoxo

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. goodnight eveeryone

Nickelpeed said...

I think Val was much stronger than Baylor. Baylor is very weak.

But, Val did do this to herself with the lie.

Penny

David said...

LOL. This is so hard keeping up with what is going on not knowing anyone but a few people and who you all are talking about.

Thanks Jackie. Show starts in a few minutes and I get to see if I can learn more of their names. =)

monty924 said...

Good show and great company. Thanks Jackie!!

Will see some of you on Friday night for TAR.

Nickelpeed said...

See everyone Friday night.

And, it looks like Jeremy gets back at John.

Now we'll see fireworks!!!

Penny

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you so much Jackie. This blog is greatly appreciated!

Jackie said...

New Criminal Minds next! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon S said...

Thanks for hosting Jackie.

See everyone Friday, assuming I remember this week!
