Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Season Finale and Reunion Blog Party


Oh my. It's the season finale tonight! On a Wednesday even. How odd is that? I'm personally hoping for a Natalie win because she's the only one who's been consistently PLAYING the game. Of course, I don't always get my way in these things. We'll see, I guess.

Tonight is a two hour show followed by an hour of reunion. I'm really not sure how well I'll be able to do with the updates. Last night I was quite ill and still a bit iffy today. But I'll try my hardest 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 Lovely Lifeguard Laurie:
Baylor = Glenn, maquinn78, Sharon S
Jaclyn = CYW Coleman, rbennie
Keith = Donna in FL, PDX Granny  
Missy = Ed in Ohio, Monty924, Sharon N
Natalie = Jennasmom, Kelsey NY

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
Reed = David, Kathy, Lynn1
Alec = Karen in Case, Merrilee
Jon M = Donna in Alabama, Laurie

Survivor fans ready?

Ah, a recap of the season so far starts us out.

Aw, Jaclyn is crying. Too bad, so sad. Baylor and Missy want a final three with them and Natalie.

Reward Challenge - Attached to a rope, unspool rope, build a bridge, use sandbags to knock down blocks. Playing for an advantage in the upcoming immunity challenge. Missy cannot compete with fractured foot yet remains in the game.

KEITH wins reward! He sends Jaclyn to Exile Island.

This is being done a bit differently this year with Jeff segments live from California interspersed with show segments.

Keith's advantage is a practice table for the Immunity Challenge. Once he walks away, he can't return. It's an odd doohickey transferring balls via spoons.

Immunity Challenge time. Keith didn't do great in his advantage tries, but at least he has a heads up. Missy is actually going to compete in this. (About time as she should have gone out rather than skipping challenges!)

Keith WINS individual immunity, guaranteeing him a spot in the final four!

Jaclyn tries to work on Natalie to team with her to vote out Missy. Baylor wants Natalie to give her idol to Missy. Don't do it, Natalie!

Tribal - Not overly exciting prelude. Jaclyn is pretty sure she's going home.

The Tally -- Natalie plays her idol for JACLYN! (Jaclyn had promised not to vote for her in the next tribal.) This was the last time the idol could be used.

Jaclyn, Jaclyn, Jaclyn, Baylor, Baylor!

The jury is thrilled! Baylor is voted out! She goes graciously and even says it was a good move.

Missy is taking it surprisingly well, too.

The plan is to vote out Keith if Natalie or Jaclyn win -- he's the bigger threat.

Immunity Challenge time again. It's very physical. Missy won't be able to play. There are obstacles and puzzle, then raising a flag.

OMG! Jaclyn WINS immunity!

Uh-oh. Jaclyn is thinking Natalie for the vote out. oh noes!

Tribal, the tally --
Keith, Missy, Keith, Keith.

Keith is gone. Rats, guy did his best and got far. It's an all female final three!

And, best of all, Natalie is still in it. The power shifts to the jury.

Final Tribal Council, jury questioning.

Opening statements:
Missy -- Humbly sit here, I could be there. You will affect the rest of my life, loyalty was my game. Voting out Jon biggest move, broke my foot.
Jaclyn -- Ups and downs like real life. Felt alone, still fought. Align with others, middle position. I took over the reins. Brings up her medical condition which doesn't allow her to bear children.
Natalie -- I feel I deserve it. I have outwitted, outplayed, outlasted the other two. Went from surviving to trying to win. (Great speech!) She admits that had they made the right decision last night, she would have gone home instead of Keith. (Did I say great speech?)

Jury questions/statements:
Jon -- Jaclyn, present a big move or decision she was solely responsible for making and affected the game. She says the Josh out vote.

Keith -- Nat, how does it feel that the last words you ever spoke to me was a lie? Nat says that she knew if it wasn't him, it would be her. He sticks on the lying aspect and how he didn't lie.

Alec -- Nat, biggest one move and impact? Voting you off, she says. She explains the chain of events.

Alec -- Missy, mother? I directed people to vote who I wanted out.

Baylor -- Mom, much more than a game for us. We've been through the wringer. (On and on.) Most incredible thing you've ever done. Love you.

Josh -- Jaclyn, reason you're here on your merit or choices from stronger players. She talks of Jon being her stronger player. One move yours and no one else? Voting you out.

Wes -- What was it like to play with your loved one? Eh. Natalie is so proud to make it this far.

Jeremy -- Student of the game. Likes big move. Best player is going to win. Give Natalie her credit. Don't be mad.

Reed -- Nat, loved watching your gameplay, congrats. Enjoyed getting to know Jaclyn. Missy, you cast yourself as motherly, really wicked stepmother of the tribe, feels entitled. Lights into her!

Baylor cries.

Jon writes down Jaclyn, Jeremy wrote Nat, Baylor voted Missy. No surprises there!

Onto Los Angeles --

The tally: Jaclyn, Natalie, Jaclyn, Missy, Natalie, Natalie, Natalie!

NATALIE WINS (as she should)!!!

Next season teaser -- White Collar, Blue Collar, No Collar -- Survivor Worlds Apart

Woohoo, here we go. I brought pulled pork sliders and cole slaw.

Thanks Jackie for hosting us tonight.

Jackie said...

It should be interesting, for sure!

I see the Word Verification is showing. No one needs to enter it -- just post and it will work.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone!!! Jackie and Monty!

Here we go. Can't believe I'm saying this...go Natalie and Keith!!!

monty924 said...

Yes! I just hit post myself and it went through. Looks like the same problem with blogger that we had last week and on Friday.

monty924 said...

Hi Penny. I agree with you... that's the two I'm rooting for even though my pool girl is still in there.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Monty, Penny and the rest who arrive after me.

Nickelpeed said...

Now, they need to split up Missy and Baylor.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky!

monty924 said...

I don't think Baylor or Missy stand a chance with the jury.

Becky said...

I hope Natallie wins too. I don't want Missy or especially Baylor.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi everyone! 3 hours!!

Nickelpeed said...

We're going to see Jaclyn really mad.

monty924 said...

Remember, anything can happen when it comes down to final five and final four!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Jaclyn vs. Natalie...meow

monty924 said...

Hi Ed! Yay, we get to share the battle of Ohio this year. :)))

Becky said...

Jackie, I hope you get to feeling better soon. How is Vincent? Does he know we expect him to take care of you, not lay around and sniff catnip?

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Monty, Congrats!

Your Bengals put a 'Beat Down' on my Browns. :((

So we split the Battle of Ohio 1 to 1. ^5.

Maybe now we can meet in the middle, on common ground (Columbus), join forces & root on our Buckeyes! :)

Becky said...

Hey, Ed. Good to see you here with us.

I would rather see Keith win than either Missy or her brat.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, trying keep up with the twitter, too. LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Becky,

Missy is my pool pick but she's not my fave. I'm kinda' leaning towards Natalie or Jacklyn

monty924 said...

Ed, both teams played like crap in their home games this year. I was shocked the Bengals put that beat down on the Browns, but have to say I loved watching Johnny's NFL debut. :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

How can Missy even compete??

monty924 said...

No way Missy can do this.

monty924 said...

Good... she could never run this challenge

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty 'Johnny Footbal' let down a lot of people...but made even more HAPPY!

monty924 said...

Go Keith

Nickelpeed said...

I don't understand how they can keep Missy in the game. She can't do anything. It's not fair.

YAYAYAY Keith

Ed in Ohio said...

Keith the lone male Survivor!!

Becky said...

Good! Other than his spitting I like Keith.

Kathy said...

Good evening everyone

monty924 said...

That ought to light a fire in Jacklyn

Ed in Ohio said...

Jacklyn looks like the 'odd man/woman' out

monty924 said...

Cute little girl :))

Nickelpeed said...

I would have sent Missy. She can't compete, yet they keep her in the game. That is just plain wrong. IMO.

Becky said...

Hey, Kathy. I really don't think any one in the jury will vote for Missy or Baylor.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Kathy

monty924 said...

If Natalie has her way, Keith will be gone next but I think that was in the edit. I doubt it.

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~

A little late but I made it!! I have dinner cooking so I will be in and out and trying to keep up.

Jackie - hope you make it the whole night!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

Hi Kathy. Didn't see you come in. Grab a slider. I also stocked the bar. I'll have another cold one. Got to pace myself, LOL

Becky said...

Hey, Sue G

Nickelpeed said...

Why isn't she going to look? Didn't it go back in to play?

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Sue and Kathy!

Nickelpeed said...

Wow big advantage. WOW.

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow that's really a huge advantage for Keith!!

Becky said...

Didn't he win a challange something like this earlier?

monty924 said...

Big advantage, but the nerves during the actual challenge might just cancel it out.

SueGee said...

Hi back to all!

I made creamed chicken over toast with some steamed broccoli and cheese sauce. Raining far to hard here to even think BBQ food tonight LOL

SueGee

monty924 said...

SueGee, it's getting cold again here too. Rained the past two days so I brought summer time grub to remind me of better weather, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty just re-read my Bengals/Browns/Buckeyes post.

re: meeting in the middle, I meant that figuratively not literally.

Go Buckeyes!!

monty924 said...

Natalie, don't say that you know you are safe. Didn't work too well for Jacklyn and Jon

lynn1 said...

Hi everyone. I am running late but I brought a pizza with all the works.

SueGee said...

I'm hoping we at least fill up some lakes and reservoirs with all this rain. But not all at once!

SueGee

lynn1 said...

Ed and Monty, Petals and I will be cheering for BAMA on New Years Day

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Lynn...Pizza Mmmmmm!

Nickelpeed said...

Man poor Keith. I do not want Baylor or MIssy to win, darn it!!!

Kathy said...

Would like to see Natalie win as well. She really played the game.

Nickelpeed said...

So much for the advantage.

monty924 said...

Go Keith

SueGee said...

I have to make 2 cheesecakes tomorrow for a party. I'll try to bring some to the TAR finale!

SueGee

Ed in Ohio said...

Lynn,

If the Buckeyes do lose I will definetly be rooting for Bama & Roll Tide in the Championship. Don't like the other two teams at all!

monty924 said...

WOOHOO Great job, Keith!

Nickelpeed said...

YES!!!!!Keith!!! So there, Girls!!!

Becky said...

Good! Looks like Julie is in trouble.

Ed in Ohio said...

Bye Jaclyn!!

lynn1 said...

Ed, I am a Bama fan and have been for decades. I just hope any team but Florida State wins the championship

monty924 said...

This is so awesome. I watched RHAP last week and they talked about this little boy creating that reward challenge.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Folks

Becky said...

Jerff has beautiful dimples.

monty924 said...

The first female on the jury. Should be interesting. Hoping it isn't Natalie. She really deserves to be in the final three

Becky said...

Hey Lynn and Joe. Joe are you out for the holidays yet?

lynn1 said...

If these guys were thinking clearly they would send Baylor to the jury. Missy really is no threat at the comps.

Becky said...

I hope it is Baylor.

Ed in Ohio said...

Lynn, Me too...life long Buckeye & Ohio State fan. I totally agree on FSU...like them the least!

lynn1 said...

Hi Joe

SueGee said...

OT (but BB related)

Anyone ever watch "Who Do You Think You Are?" This season they are going to help Julie Chen trace her family back into China!

SueGee

monty924 said...

Hi Joe

I'm not an SEC fan so I don't think I can root for the Tide no matter what happens on Jan. 1

Can't stand Florida State either

SueGee said...

They sure need to speed this up if they are going to get down to 3 finalists!!

SueGee

lynn1 said...

SueGee I love that show

monty924 said...

Banana bread just out of the oven. It should be cool and ready to serve by the next tribal council. :)))

SueGee said...

Oh Monty - sounds so good. I was saving up my bananas to make a loaf and my husband ate one!! Oh well...


SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

I really would like to see Missy go. Come on Natalie, blindside...However, Missy and Baylor would be perfect to take to the end because the jury do not like them.

SueGee said...

Me too Lynn. So glad it got picked up on TLC after the networks dropped it. I like that show much better than the one on PBS too.

SueGee

monty924 said...

Natalie, you can't be that stupid. Play the idol for YOU, not Missy. Even if she is my pool girl, don't do it.

Joe in NY said...

I find it a little surprising that there isn't more talk about breaking up the final Blood.

monty924 said...

Missy or Baylor should go tonight... but will Natalie write their name down???

Ed in Ohio said...

Oh how big of Missy!! Ughh

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too, Joe. Get them split up. You do not want your chances blown at the very end.

monty924 said...

BOOM

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow Wow WOW!!!!!

monty924 said...

Standing on my chair CLAPPING

lynn1 said...

YAY!

Nickelpeed said...

WOW, great play. It really is.

Becky said...

YippEEE!!!

Joe in NY said...

Wow, I would have thought Missy. Easier to sell that to the jury, I would think

Nickelpeed said...

Now, Natalie will be in trouble. Jaclyn better protect her. Look at Missy. She's pissed. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Hi Becky,

STill in Finals. Not out yet. Can't take much more nonsense from students. LOL

lynn1 said...

Sometimes this show works the way I want it to

Becky said...

I am so glad it was Baylor who went home.

Ed in Ohio said...

Huge move by Natalie! She's really playing the game.

Either Nat or Keith deserve to win IMO

(Even though I kinda like Jaclyn)

Laurie said...

Update!
Huyopa
Jaclyn = CYW Coleman, rbennie,
Keith = Donna in FL, PDX Granny
Missy = Ed in Ohio, Monty924, Sharon N
Natalie = Jennasmom, Kelsey NY,

Jury
Josh = crob61, Rochelle, Jackie
Jeremy = Becky, Nana in the NW,
Wes = Buzzmaam, ORKMommy, sanra
Reed = David, Kathy, Lynn1
Alec = Karen in Case, Merrilee,
Jon M = Donna in Alabama, Laurie,
Baylor = Glenn, maquinn78, Sharon S

Nickelpeed said...

Miss is really an afterthought. She really hasn't done anything to be in the finals. I do not think any of the jury, aside from Baylor, will even consider her. Natalie and Keith have proven they belong there.

However, if Keith does not win this next time out, he will be gone.

monty924 said...

I think Natalie did the right thing. Missy can't win with THAT jury. She's a perfect one to take to the end. Baylor, I don't think could have won either, but you have to break up that last pair.

Ed in Ohio said...

This is silly! How is Missy supposed to compete?

monty924 said...

Hi Lifeguard Laurie

Anonymous said...

Hi Everyone. Keith is doing great.Great move to get Baylor out.

Glenn

Becky said...

Ah, being young!

Ed in Ohio said...

Purple, Yellow, or Red???

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Keith. You've got to win if you want to stay.

I would be peeved that Missy sat this out. Only reason to take her to the end, would be because you would win. No way she will win.

Ed in Ohio said...

OUCH!!

Nickelpeed said...

If keith doesn't win, he's gone.

Wow, Jaclyn

monty924 said...

WOW, what a final

Ed in Ohio said...

All ladies final???

lynn1 said...

I hope Jaclyn doesn't stiff Natalie

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, that sucks that Keith could be gone.

Becky said...

Bye, Keith.

monty924 said...

She could, Lynn. It wouldn't surprise me.

Nickelpeed said...

I think it would be better if she took Jaclyn and Missy because most of the people on the jury do not like Missy or Jaclyn.

Becky said...

By all rights Missy should be sent packing. She got a bye on the last three challanges.

SueGee said...

Promises made for votes near the end are oft times broken...beware!!

SueGee

Ed in Ohio said...

They all have a loved one on the jury except Natalie

Nickelpeed said...

I agree Becky. But, what if they decide to get rid of Natalie?

Nickelpeed said...

Missy has done nothing. It's not fair that she even gets any of the top money.

monty924 said...

LOL, Ed... I just went back up thread to read comments I've missed. I didn't think anything of it. I'll be texting with family in Columbus on Jan. 1 but I'd be there if it wasn't the day after amateurs night ;-)

Joe in NY said...

he should have pitched Natalie, not Missy. Missy has one vote. Natalie would probably get everyone else except John

monty924 said...

Ut OH

Ed in Ohio said...

Natalie got rid of Jon but saved Jaclyn. Million $ decision.

lynn1 said...

I am very much afraid that Natalie is going to get voted out

Nickelpeed said...

Crap, so they're going to vote out Natalie. In that case...If Natalie is not in it final, GO KEITH.

Well, Natalie...you making that big move could bite you in the butt. Yikes

Nickelpeed said...

Charasmatic...I don't know about that, but he's the last guy standing.

Natalie, quiet.

Ed in Ohio said...

Natalie's talkin' too much!

monty924 said...

There's Alec... catching flies at TC again. Boy should learn to close his mouth. js

Becky said...

I think she just shot herself in the foot.

monty924 said...

Here we go

Becky said...

Darn!

lynn1 said...

WHew!

monty924 said...

Aww, Keith you played a great game at the end. Good Job!!

Becky said...

Natalie will win it I hope.

Ed in Ohio said...

Girls Night Out!!!

monty924 said...

Million dollar mistake on Jaclyn's part

Ed in Ohio said...

If Jaclyn dumped Natalie after Natalie saved her she would not have got my vote.

If Keith stayed & Natalie went he would get my vote.

I don't think Jaclyn or Missy would win either way it went.

Nickelpeed said...

I hope Natalie wins. I can't believe I'm saying that. Do not want Missy to get it. I know she couldn't help being hurt, but she did nothing to get there.

lynn1 said...

Never in a million years would I have believed I would be cheering for one of the twinnies.

monty924 said...

True Ed. Jaclyn would have lost to Keith too. :)))

monty924 said...

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, how you holding up?

monty924 said...

Alec needs his mouth wired shut

Nickelpeed said...

Me neither, Lynn. But, out of the 3, she is the best. She really played the game.

That's it, Missy, give them a tough at the heart strings.

Nickelpeed said...

But, her team didn't win when she hurt her foot.

Nickelpeed said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
SueGee said...

You really have to admire how Natalie has played the game. In the beginning she was a bit lost without her twin, but she sure has played everyone!!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh, here Jaclyn goes with the sad story. I do feel horrible for her, but -

GO NATALIE

Nickelpeed said...

She's so right. But, we'll see what happens. Hope they reward Natalie.

Becky said...

Whoa! Great ending, Natalie.

monty924 said...

Penny, she hurt her ankle on the reward challenge. She, Keith and Jon did win it but Jon gave his spot to Baylor

Ed in Ohio said...

I had the Twins last year in the TAR pool & couldn't stand them. But I would vote for Natalie. She is the most deserving based on game play.

lynn1 said...

I can't predict how the jury will vote but if they vote honestly natalie has definitely played the best game of the 3 sitting there. It would have been much tougher to vote for a winner if Keith was still there

monty924 said...

Good start for all three women. Jaclyn sure has catty eye rolls when Natalie speaks, but she voted to bring her along.

monty924 said...

Based on post eviction interviews from all the jury members except for Baylor and Keith, I think Natalie has this.

David said...

Hi everyone. =) Took a nap and woke up 6 hours later, lol must have needed it.

I also hope Natalie wins, and can not believe I said that. She is the only one left who played the game in my opinion.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh gosh, I'm hoping they are not going against her.

This is not good.

Ed in Ohio said...

Natalie played them like Dominos

Nickelpeed said...

He is such a doofus.

LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Missy did NOTHING to win.

Natalie made all the big moves.

Nickelpeed said...

I knew I liked Jeremy for a reason, but how will that target Natalie?

Nickelpeed said...

Sing it Reed!!!

monty924 said...

That stings... but Reed's absolutely correct

lynn1 said...

Wes needs to learn to keep his tongue in his mouth

Ed in Ohio said...

That was kinda rude dude!

Becky said...

He didn't pull any punches!

lynn1 said...

Ed I always heard the truth hurts!

Nickelpeed said...

THAT was the best finale statement since Sue. Love it; and it was SO true. Woohoo Reed!

monty924 said...

Lol @ Lynn. You noticed that and I can't keep screaming at the screen for Alec to close his mouth. Both are odd annoying screen shots. Someone will probably make a gif of both of them. :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

Missy wasn't going to win anyway. That was just like kicking her when she's down.

Payback's a B I guess

lynn1 said...

I know Monty Alec looks slack jawed and Wes is like a lizard flicking his tongue in and out of his mouth

SueGee said...

I'm always talking back to the TV LOL. Sounds like I will be busy tonight!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Gosh, I hope it's Natalie.

I guess Jaclyn would be okay, too.

BUT

GO NATALIE.

Ed in Ohio said...

It's always fun to see what they all look like all cleaned up

Becky said...

Thank goodness they no longer have that horrible walk where they had to say something nice about everyone.

Ed in Ohio said...

That doesn't even look like Missy!

lynn1 said...

Yes!

monty924 said...

Happy DANCE

Becky said...

Great! I am with those who never thought that I would want a twinnie to win anything!

Ed in Ohio said...

She deserved it!

Jackie said...

Becky - I don't think Missy could have done the walk. I bet that's why they left it out.

SueGee said...

I like that!! See you all Friday

Jackie - go rest your eyes now!!!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

I got kicked off.

Yes, Natalie!!!

monty924 said...

I agree on how they look now. Missy and Jaclyn look completely different tonight. I'm shocked to say that I'm tickled pink that one of the Twinnies won :)))

Nickelpeed said...

Who voted for who. Jackie, do you know? Who did Keith vote for?

Jackie said...

I think Keith voted Jaclyn, but I'm not sure. They didn't show all the votes, but it looked like Keith was the misspelled Jacklyn. I think.

Becky said...

Penny, Baylor voted for Missy. LOLOLOL

monty924 said...

They showed the second Jaclyn vote, but I'm not sure who it was or if they just edited it to make it unclear.

Nickelpeed said...

Love Rocker's low voice. I did watch him when he was with the Braves.

monty924 said...

Penny, just watched it back and it looks like it was Reed who gave Jaclyn the second vote.

Nickelpeed said...

I do not think he has all his bolts in his head. Jon is kind of an airy guy. LOL

David said...

Good for Natalie.

Of the three left she should have won. She seems to have grown a lot without her other half there and much more likable.

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you, Monty

Nickelpeed said...

I actually loved Reed's wicked step mother speech. Perfect. Best ever.

Ed in Ohio said...

re; Reed....NO COMMENT!

Nickelpeed said...

Good. She needed to be told what he said. Done.

monty924 said...

Good for Reed. She was the evil step mother out there. Especially when they merged and she started going through the rice just like they had done at Huyopa (?)
