Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Double Episode Blog Party - December 3


Well, this is going to be an interesting challenge. I'm not sure how well I'll be able to do with a double episode tonight. I'll give it my best shot to update this entry with the major events as they air here on the East Coast. Refresh the page to get the latest.

As always, the real party is in the comments area ... please join us there!

Here's the latest on the blog pool from the Luverly Lifeguard Laurie:

Alec = Karen in Case, Merrilee
Baylor = Glenn, maquinn78, Sharon S
Jaclyn = CYW Coleman, rbennie
Jon M = Donna in Alabama, Laurie
Keith = Donna in FL, PDX Granny  
Missy = Ed in Ohio, Monty924, Sharon N
Natalie = Jennasmom, Kelsey NY
Reed = David, Kathy, Lynn1

Out: Nadiya
Val = Brenda, Nickelpeed
John R = Cheryl NC, MikesGirl, Terry in TX
Drew = Delee, Petals, SueGee
Kelley = Babs Dud, ML, Russ
Dale = Brian, Margo
QUIT -- Julie = Donna NY, meb

Jury:
Josh = crob61, Rochelle, Jackie
Jeremy = Becky, Nana in the NW
Wes = Buzzmaam, ORKMommy, sanra

Survivor fans ready?

Ah, good. Jon and Jaclyn are arguing.

Reward == How well do you know your tribemates. The chopping at a rope one. The reward is a horse ride to a resort, barbeque, overnight.

Reed is the first one out of the challenge due to being chopped by the others. Alec out.  Keith out.

Since the rest were so friendly about it and wanted Missy to win, Jeff gave it to her. Jon goes to Exile. Missy can bring two people -- Baylor and Natalie.

Stand off between Reed and Missy because Reed called Baylor a brat.

Jon found another idol. Oh, well.

Baylor and Natalie are upset that Alec and Jaclyn are flirting (after they return from reward).

Immunity Challenge -- Balance oversize paddle on a stand, roll balls into holes, must get six. Keith wins immunity!

Huh. Jon and Jaclyn had another argument. Reed tried to get J/J to work with his side. Jaclyn is pouting. Jon told Missy he found the idol before even Jaclyn knows (unless I missed that).

Tribal - Missy votes Reed, Reed votes Missy. No surprise there.

The tally - (no one plays an idol) --
Reed, Missy, Reed, Reed, Reed, Reed.

Reed is gone. Whoa ... even Alec voted Reed!

Jon thinks he's controlling the game. Huh.

Reward - Standing on a small block holding a ball with a thing against a frame.  Winner gets a king size canopy bed and feast.  Alec out. Missy out. Keith out. Baylor out. Jon out. It's Natalie and Jaclyn left. Jaclyn out. Natalie wins reward! She sends Alec to Exile. She chooses to share the bed with Jaclyn, then Jon, too.

Heh. Natalie is being strategic. She tells us she wants to build Jon's trust, then wham him out! Good for her. She wants revenge for his part in getting Jeremy out. Meanwhile, Jon is getting cocky, sure he has Natalie in his back pocket.

Immunity Challenge -- Pull on a rope balancing a table, retrieving blocks, first one to stand all their blocks wins.

Gah. Jon wins Immunity.

He wants Keith to go, as does Missy. They plan to split the vote between Keith and Alec. Natalie and Baylor are not happy.

Natalie is talking to Keith, but thinks she could flip the game, get Alec out and use Keith to get rid of Jon. Meanwhile, Baylor is getting smitten with Alec.

Tribal - Natalie knowing it's not time to make her move, talks about the solidarity of the alliance of five. We'll see the vote.

Tally --
Keith, Alec, Keith, Alec, Keith, Alec, Alec.

WHOA! She did it! Alec joins the jury. Jon and Missy are befuddled.

Hi Jackie and all...

Wow, we're in for a long pool party tonight. Last week's episode was amazing. Keith has nothing between his ears and Natalie is playing a great Survivor game. Richard Hatch loves her, LOL.

Jackie said...

I see you caught up, Monty! I told you it was a good episode. Um. That was you, right?

monty924 said...

Trouble in paradise for Jon and Jacklyn

Jackie said...

Good.

monty924 said...

Yes, Jackie. I missed it last week and my DVR didn't tape it. Craziest tribal council, lol :))

lynn1 said...

hi Jackie & Monty. I missed last week but caught up with On Demand last night.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, monty and arrivals after me.

lynn1 said...

hi Becky

Becky said...

Hey, Lynn. Jackie are you feeling any better?

monty924 said...

Hi Lynn, hi Becky. I brought crock pot sweet and sour meatballs tonight. They're yummy!

lynn1 said...

Becky I thought about you and your Mom. last friday was my Mother's 91st birthday. She attacked her Birthday cake got frosting all over her nose and in her hair. She got down and dirty with her cake for sure.

Anonymous said...

Hi everyone. Bad move by jon taking credit.

Glenn

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! Just back from getting take-out at the local Chinese restaurant. A little bit of everything for everyone!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi everybody! Survivors Ready?? 2 hours tonight!

monty924 said...

Hey Glenn, Suegee and Ed

SueGee said...

I do think Natalie is playing so much smarter without her twinnie. I can almost like her LOL

SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

These fools make me laugh

monty924 said...

Missy plays too personally. She won't get much further.

Becky said...

Baylor IS a brat.

SueGee said...

I know I won't be able to sit here for 2 hours and then sit another 2 hours and watch the show when it is on here....

Jackie, are you really bored yet? Just when you get used to staying home and feeling better it will be time to go back to work..

SueGee on the LeftCoast

lynn1 said...

I never have been a fan of Missy or Baylor

Becky said...

Lynn, that must have been fun and cute to see.

monty924 said...

Lynn, I couldn't agree more. I have Missy in the pool and just don't like her or her daughter.

Becky said...

Yeah, Jackie, you might get bored, but I bet Vincent won't. I bet he is in hog heaven.

Ed in Ohio said...

Sometimes winning a reward is not such a good thing.

Jackie said...

Tonight is going to be a bit of a challenge for me -- TV and computer for two hours. Not sure how it will go. My concentration is a bit off.

Jackie said...

Yes, Becky. Vincent is enjoying this all much too much.

Ed in Ohio said...

I have Missy in the pool too. Not much of a fan, but don't really have a favorite to root for either.

SueGee said...

There are lots of brats this season. I don't like Reed at all and Missy & Baylor need to be broken up.

SueGee

monty924 said...

Ugh! I don't like Jon either. Here's hoping he blows this one.

SueGee said...

I agree with you Monty - don't like Jon either...

SueGee

monty924 said...

Actually Natalie found it. I doubt Baylor ever even looked for it before Natalie came over and made Baylor look for it.

David said...

Hi everyone =)

OD'd on turkey friday (late thanksgiving at sister's because of her work) and slept through TAR. Had to watch it online.

They need to stop giving Missy their rewards. Let her earn her own. Sheeesh.

Becky said...

Big mistake on Missy's part. I am not a fan of any of them any more. My heart will not break when any of them go to jury.

Speaking of jury, is Ponderosa up yet?

David said...

They knew that new idols would be in play after they got used last week. Someone should have volunteered to go to exile to prevent Jon getting it. Dang.

monty924 said...

Hey, David. Yes, Missy needs to start earning her way around there. Becky, Ponderosa is up for Josh, Jeremy and Wess. Good episodes.

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

monty924 said...

Wess lost 20 pounds while he was out there and gained 11 pounds back in his first 24 hours at Ponderosa, LOL. That guy can eat!!

David said...

Ponderossa? is this up on CBS website as I have not heard of this.

monty924 said...

Hi Joe

SueGee said...

Ponderosa is what they call the camp the jury stays in. They are fun to watch! They have it for just about all the seasons.

SueGee

SueGee said...

Those that are out of the game before the jury get taken to a nice vacation spot too, but isolated from possible press/leaks. The first season they actually sent people home and then realized they needed to keep them in one place!

SueGee

monty924 said...

Amazing

Joe in NY said...

Bit of a shocker, but good for Keith.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Monty

Becky said...

That was hard! The challenges have been harder this year.

Jackie said...

David - Go to the CBS Survivor website and then to videos for Ponderosa.

Joe in NY said...

Given Jon & Jacklyn's mercurial nature, I'm rather surprised no one has turned on them yet. Usually, the "swing vote" ends up getting ousted. Especially with a couple that has shown no loyalty, you'd think they would have gotten more flack than they have.

Although, I guess the explanation is pretty simple. Only a few people out there are really playing.

Ed in Ohio said...

John & Jaclyn's votes seem to be coveted almost evey week. A power couple...for now.

monty924 said...

David, the Ponderosa videos are up on the show page on CBS. You need to go to the videos button and then scroll down passed the full episodes and a few other categories. They are like on the bottom of the video selections.

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty,

O...HI...O

Go Bucks!!

monty924 said...

Exactly, Joe. I'm surprised myself but as you said, they (the majority of them) don't know how to play Survivor. At this point, I think only Reed and Natalie know what they're doing.

lynn1 said...

I would like to see Missy go

David said...

Thanks SueGee, Jackie and Monty. I will check them out. =)

Ed in Ohio said...

Uh oh! Trouble in paradise

Becky said...

Reed is a snake.

Ed in Ohio said...

Jon you're losin' Jacklyn...in more ways than one!

Becky said...

She gets mad when Jon talks to Missy and angry and tells him she doesn't want to talk with him.

monty924 said...

This is high school or junior high Survivor

Becky said...

Reed does have beautiful eyes.

Becky said...

Reed does have beautiful eyes.

monty924 said...

Yeah, Ed. Saturday was oh so sweet!! O-HI-O

SueGee said...

I was thinking earlier that most don't really how to really play (or outwit or outlast) Natalie and Reed do, and Jon seems to have a grasp of the fundamentals...

I enjoy those that can manipulate without domination if you get what I mean....

SueGee

monty924 said...

I wouldn't be hurt if Missy is gone tonight

monty924 said...

Women have the numbers now

lynn1 said...

pass me a towel I am out of the pool

SueGee said...

The jury is all male so far...
I vote to break up another couple.

SueGee

lynn1 said...

I actually hope Natalie or Jaclyn wins it all

lynn1 said...

Jon you are really an idiot

monty924 said...

Jon's going to eat those words...

Becky said...

I like Natalie without her sister.

David said...

I am out to Lynn1. He was living on borrowed time the last few weeks anyway.

I really want Missy, Alec, Baylor, or Jon out next.

Ed in Ohio said...

Jon don't get too over-confident.

Might come back to bite ya'!

Joe in NY said...

I actually wouldn't mind Natalie winning. But not Jaclyn. Ew...she's such a little brat. And I think Natalie was right, her relationship with Alec borders on the inappropriate.

Jackie said...

I'm not thrilled with Jaclyn. At this point, either a Natalie or Keith win (the latter not likely at all) would suit me.

monty924 said...

I think we all like Natalie on her own with her twinnie. She's playing a smart game and she's able to bounce back every time she loses someone close in the game. Good game play!

lynn1 said...

I don't particularly like jaclyn but I like her better than Missy, baylor, Alec,Jon or keith

Becky said...

He is too cocky.

monty924 said...

That a girl, Natalie! Always thinking :))

Ed in Ohio said...

Jaclyn is really tall!

Jackie said...

Now I'm really wishing Natalie had done TAR with someone other than Nadiya. She's very competitive and strategic.

Ed in Ohio said...

I had the twins for my pool pick in their TAR season & did not care for them at all.

But I'll admit Natalie by herself is playing a very good game on Survivor.

lynn1 said...

Jon is a total ass

SueGee said...

As twins you never saw them as individuals... Good idea Jackie. A good All-Star TAR would let us fans pick teams!

SueGee

Joe in NY said...

I would love to see Jon go home right now, at the peak of his arrogance. LOL.

Joe in NY said...

You have to wonder how much of Natalie on TAR is the edit. I mean they were pretty competitive on their if I remember correctly. But there was a tendency to just always see them yacking at each other...and others. Always dangerous to draw too definite an opinion based on the edit. Consider how different (sometimes) the BB edit is from the actual events in the House.

David said...

That is true Joe. We don't have the luxury of having a 24/7 live feed during TAR or Survivor to know what the edit is doing or not doing to reality.

lynn1 said...

I hope natalie doesn't outsmart herself

Nickelpeed said...

Finally here. Gone last week and worked tonight.

Hi everyone. I see I missed a lot!!

Jackie, how are you feeling?

Becky said...

Hey, Penny. It's good to e-see you.

Nickelpeed said...

Not going to watch rest of it. I'll lurk on here, though.

I'm liking Natalie this time around. She's very smart without her sister.

It makes me think that Nadiya was the instigator of all their arguing and nit picking on TAR

Penny

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky, sounds like you had a happy, but busy Thanksgiving.

Ed in Ohio said...

Slow & Steady!!

Joe in NY said...

Keith has been surprisingly good in challenges lately.

Nickelpeed said...

I think if Keith doesn't win this, he's gone. However, if Alec and Jaclyn are flirting, Jon will make sure Alec is gone. Although, I think Jon is clueless to a lot of things. He seems to be a little out there sometimes.

Ed in Ohio said...

Well there goes that plan

monty924 said...

Damn

Joe in NY said...

Plan B would be obvious. If you can't get John, take out Jaclyn. If you take out Alec or Keith, you run the risk of not having the numbers to get out John later. Especially given that Natalie is playing single with two couples, it would help her to break up the couples. Since she's in it with Baylor to the end, that leaves John/Jaclyn. Which would kind of serve them right for not seeing the hand-writing on the wall.

Becky said...

Penny, it was fun -- but I told Tommy to start reminding me on Dec. 15 NOT to volunteer again.

monty924 said...

Hi Penny... I just saw where you slipped in here.

I have a feeling it will be Keith. I don't think Alec is threatening enough to them.

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, Becky, it sounds like you were on the move all the time. It was good of you to volunteer, though.

Plan B, I don't think they should take out Keith either, but I think because he's already shown he can win, they'll take him out.

Nickelpeed said...

I really do not like Missy and Baylor. Missy has to always depend on someone else to win. I think Jon is stupid; and Baylor is a brat.

monty924 said...

Do it Natalie

Nickelpeed said...

What's going on? What does Natalie want to do?

monty924 said...

She did it!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh man! That's great!! Wow. WTG Natalie~~~


Well, I will see everyone on Friday night and, yay, next Wednesday. Thank you so much for hosting us, Jackie. Hope you mend well.

Penny

Ed in Ohio said...

Natalie might have just shot herself in the foot! The couples are going to know it was her.

lynn1 said...

Stay tuned survivor fans we may get to see Jon leave next week.

Jackie said...

Penny - Natalie wants to keep Keith as he's a stronger person to work with her to get Jon out.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm hoping they don't decide to turn on Natalie, she's playing the game well.

Thank you again, Jackie!!!

See everyone later!!

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. Hope you feel better soon. goodnight everyone

monty924 said...

I like her move, Ed. She's no slouch at immunity challenges and she won loyalty from Keith with that vote. She's on her own anyway with the two sets of loved ones. Fifth on the totem pole is still fifth no matter which way she went.

Nickelpeed said...

I still need to watch last week's so, I'm trying not to watch the ending of this.

Thanks Jackie!

Penny

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, all!

Ed in Ohio said...

Good Night folks!

Feel better Jackie!

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. Keep taking it easy and have a good weekend. I'll see the TAR watchers on Friday and will see everyone else next week.

David said...

Thanks Jackie. =)

Have a good night everyone.
