Survivor: Worlds Apart - Season Premiere Blog Party and Pool!


Survivor fans ready? Tonight's 90-minute season premiere will be followed up by a 90-minute season premiere for The Amazing Race 26. The TAR blog party post will show up a few minutes before that premiere. So, if you're watching both shows, refresh the blog main page at show time to join in on that party!

Here we go again. This time the gimmick, er ... twist, is that the castaways are separated by the kind of jobs they have in real life. Like every other twist separating castaways, all will be null and void once it comes to the merge. But, let's see how they do.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be posting the major happenings in live time here on this entry. Refresh the page to get the latest news!

The Lovely Lifeguard Laurie is once again running the blog pool (thank you!)  Any castaway(s) booted tonight will result in the blog pool people who had them being reassigned to another castaway. Here are our random match-ups for the season:

Blue Collar
Dan - Brian, CherylinNC 
Kelly - Petals, Ed in Ohio 
Lindsey - Donna in FL, David 
Mike - meb, Nickelpeed
Rodney - Margo 
Sierra - Jennasmom

No Collar
Hali - Zoetawny, monty924 
Jenn - Merrilee, Becky 
Joe - SueGee, Chris 
Nina - Lynn1 
Vince - Delee 
Will - Rbennie

White Collar
Carolyn - Jackie TerryinTX 
Joaquin - Laurie, Rochelle 
Max - PDX Granny, Marlo 
Shirin - NanaintheNW 
So - ORKMommy 
Tyler - Donna in Alabama

Okay, it's on with the show we will go!

Jeff is introducing the tribes. All newbies, no veterans of the show and many are big fans. Yellow is WC, Blue is BC and Red is NC. Jeff wants them each to pick a leader. WC chooses Joaquin. BC picks Dan. NC picks Will. Each of them have to pick a second member. So for WC, BC has Mike, NC has Jenn. Once they get to their camps, the two "in charge" must make a big decision for their tribe. Hmm.

Deceive -- they can a small bag of beans to camp and get an idol clue
Honesty -- they can bring big bag of beans back, no clue.

Jenn/Will take the big beans, Mike/Dan the same -- their tribe is already talking about how they actually took the small bag. Joaquin wants the advantage and ally with So. They go for the small bag. So feels like she's making a deal with the devil. She just might be. Their tribe also thinks they're lying.

BC has a fire built in less than two hours.

Must Dan wear a speedo while he calls himself a fat man? He's alienated most of his tribe due to his mouth or bossiness.

Joe earns brownie points with his tribe because he has now made fire without a flint.

Oh my gosh ... Carolyn, my pool person, found an idol without a clue. Mind you, Joaquin and So did NOT share the clue nor the fact they had one. Ha! WC can't start a fire, nor build a shelter.

Immunity Challenge -- free a ladder and bring it through a series of obstacles, then choose a puzzle to solve out of three. The puzzles each address a different approach to thinking. First place winner gets reward of a fire-making kit, second place gets a flint.  Last place gets to go to Tribal.

NO COLLAR wins! Blue Collar wins second place. White Collar gets to go to Tribal and someone will go home.

So is working on getting Carolyn out even though Shirin is the one who blew the puzzle. Thankfully Carolyn has an idol and a clue that her name is being brought up. She tells Tyler (who let her know the others are talking about her going) about the idol. Now Carolyn is working to get So out.

Tribal Council time! Catfight time. Meow! So voted Carolyn and vice versa.

The tally -- Carolyn does not use the idol.

Carolyn, So, Carolyn, So, So, So.

So is voted out first of the season!

monty924 said...

Hey, lynn, Laurie, SueGee, and Penny!

My Hali looks like she going to eaten alive out there. Hope I'm wrong.

David said...

Gooooo Lindsey. Better to say it now since I know nothing about any of them. I might end up not liking her.

Laurie said...

Hello everyone!
I brought some fried chicken and potato salad for everyone. It's over on the bar. Help yourself.

monty924 said...

Funny... Laurie, I made chicken tonight for dinner but there were no leftovers. Yummy!!

I did stock the bar though when I got here. Enjoy!

Cheryl Sherman said...

Hi everyone...i hope the snow doesnt knock out the power here at home tonight!! Lucky me got a blue collar for my pool pick...yeaaaaaa!

CherylinNC

Jackie said...

Hi, All! And, yes, David. The TAR post which will magically pop up just before 9:30 ET mentions that the second episode airs this Friday, like day after tomorrow.

Nickelpeed said...

Man, that's a scrawny little racoon.

Penny

monty924 said...

Hi Cheryl... I feel your pain regarding the snow and electric. This has been two crazy weeks here.

lynn1 said...

I have a big pot of homemade vegetable beef soup and some cheddar cheese garlic biscuits.

lynn1 said...

Hi Cheryl

David said...

I sawn that movie, The day After tomorrow. I hope that is not the result we get having 2 TAR's in the same week. =)

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Everybody! Jumpin' in late. Just got home, gonna' have to catch up!

Petals said...

It's freezing rain here, but was 59° earlier.

lynn1 said...

Hi Ed

Petals said...

Oh! I nearly forgot, i have hot fresh banana bread.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Lynn! Soup sounds good with all this cold weather.

monty924 said...

Hey, Ed!! Petals, it was -5 when I went to work yesterday morning and it was 41* when I left work today. Mother Nature is very fickle this winter.

Petals said...

Thank u for stocking the bar, Monty. I need a drink!

lynn1 said...

It is nice to see the warm tropical location of Survivor with miserable weather many of us are living with

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Monty! It's been below zero almost every night & morning here. Schools are off every other day!

Hey Monty.......O H......

~~Silk said...

Not raccoon. Coatimundi.

monty924 said...

Mmmm, banana bread is a favorite of mine. I'm going to make one for tomorrow after the show.

Becky said...

Hey Jadckie,Vincent and pool people. I got distracted and forgot to come on line. I have missed being at Jackie's.

monty924 said...

Oh yeah, Ed. I-O :))

lynn1 said...

Hi Silk & Becky

David said...

Think it is time for a new keyboard. Having trouble spelling lately. The cause could be that all the letters are worn off except the Q,X,V, and J, but not 100% sure. =)

Ed in Ohio said...

Banana Bread (with walnuts) one of my all time faves!

Without is good too!

Becky said...

Monty, I brought my first place award winning apple pie to finnish the meal.

SueGee said...

Warm banana bread with a little real butter or cream cheese yum

SueGee

Petals said...

2 loaves. One with nuts, one without. Sweet whipped butter is on the counter. ..

SueGee said...

We need to save some of this food for the second show LOL

SueGee

Becky said...

It really is a 1st place pie.

Nickelpeed said...

Uh oh, my pool pick is already heaving. LOL

Penny

monty924 said...

Hey Becky! Great to see everyone again.

Nickelpeed said...

The Banana Bread smells so good, Petals!!! Yum.

Petals said...

I haven't been able to watch the show yet (long story). Is Kelly a guy or a girl. And are they cool?

Nickelpeed said...

Boy, he's calling the kettle black, isn't he? LOL

Cheryl Sherman said...

no surprise the white collar took deceit...i am surprised the blue collar girls didnt trust their guys though

cherylinnc

lynn1 said...

I'm with you Penny Vince is trying to run the show on his team

Ed in Ohio said...

Petals, Kelly is Definitely a Girl!

We both have her as our pool pick.

Becky said...

Our church had a catered dinner for Valentine's Day. Dessert was to be furnish by the members with a bake contest with a winner. I took a dessert, but did not register it for the contest. The minister's wife came by our table and asked me if I got a number for my pie. I told her no, it wasn't for judging and why. She laughed and walked away. She put a number on it and it won. Then I had to get up in front of a room full of Baptists and tell them their award winning dessert was a Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple pie! They made me keep the award.

monty924 said...

Kelly's a state trooper, Petals. Seems okay/cool so far.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, they are showing a lot of team dynamics. No competition right now. Must be holding it for the last 1/2 hour.

Those girls are not nice.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh Becky, that is funny!!!

monty924 said...

Agree with you, Penny. A lot of catty women this season. I'm happy that Hali is under that radar for now. She seems like a little mouse who might surprise me.

lynn1 said...

Oh my eyes. @@ That Fat Dude in thing underwear was something I may never be able to forget

Nickelpeed said...

He's not really a free spirit, is he? Vince is very, very competetive. Not a nice guy. People better watch out for him.

Penny

Petals said...

Oh God...I hate Kelly! She talks like a dumn man.

Becky said...

I don't care for feather boy.

lynn1 said...

I meant thong underwear

Petals said...

She's a ballbuster with bad grammar. Ugh

SueGee said...

Good one Becky!


SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

I must have missed something with Kelly.

Petals said...

Ed, you & I are in the Kelly boat together! LOL

Nickelpeed said...

That's funny that the white collar had to sleep on a horrible shelter. You can tell they are not used to making things. Too used to others doing it for them. LOL

Petals said...

"try to watch you do that"? As in, I am will try to see you?

How about "I will watch you try to do that"?

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

(sorry, I'm having issues)

Petals said...

WTF is with Lil Hiawatha and his avian headpiece?

monty924 said...

Dang... found the idol without a clue. Ever since Russell there's been a lot of that happening on Survivor, LOL

Petals said...

Joe is cute! That feather guy has man-envy

Nickelpeed said...

I like Carolyn. So glad she found the idol. So there So and Joaquin!!!

Becky said...

Is Jenn the one that feather boy questioned?

Becky said...

I agree Penny.

Jackie said...

I like Kelly so far. And, Carolyn is my blog pick with an idol!

Nickelpeed said...

Finally, a challenge!!!

monty924 said...

Avian headpiece, LOL

monty924 said...

Come on No Collar

monty924 said...

Blue Collar is a hot mess

Becky said...

Every season we wonder why anyone would apply for the show and not learn how to make fire!

Just applying to Amazaning Race and not learning to drive shift.

monty924 said...

YAY!!! No Collar... Hali safe tonight

Petals said...

Joe is HOT, I really like Joe. When Kelly is voted out from the Clueless Collar tribe, I will root for Joe. LOL

lynn1 said...

Yay No collar

Nickelpeed said...

Why would you pick 50 pieces???

Becky said...

Good!

Petals said...

Shoot. They sure showed me...

Petals said...

Talk about reinforcing stereotypes, LOL

monty924 said...

Joe is a C-U-T-I-E!!

Nickelpeed said...

Why is Carolyn one of the weakest links? So needs to go, IMO

Nickelpeed said...

I like Joe from No Collar. But, my pool pick is Mike on blue collar. Go Mike!

Becky said...

Previews look like it will be another season of yelling at your partner. It was nice last season without all the back biting.

monty924 said...

All couples this season, Becky. Oh joy!! I see a lot of bickering coming.

Nickelpeed said...

I hope it's not Carolyn. I like her.

However, I would not have told anyone I had the idol.

monty924 said...

I think So is going bye-bye

Nickelpeed said...

Too, too funny. Cat fight!!!

Nickelpeed said...

If it's So, I'll be surprised.

Ed in Ohio said...

Geez! This tribe is spilling their guts right from jump street!

Becky said...

I hope she plays the Idol.

Nickelpeed said...

I would have used it.

Nickelpeed said...

WOW! I am surprised, but really happy!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow Carolyn's a gambler!

lynn1 said...

Too Bad "SO" sad

Becky said...

Good. I can't believe that Carolyn didn't play the idol.

Ed in Ohio said...

LOL Lynn :))

Nickelpeed said...

See everyone in the next hour. Are we changing titles? LOL

For those not in to TAR, I'll see you next week!!!

Thank you, Jackie!

Penny

Becky said...

Good one Lynn.

Jackie said...

My blog pick made it idol intact! The The Amazing Race post is up.

monty924 said...

Big risk there but it paid off. Thanks Jackie for the party tonight. I'll probably just sit in the corner of the pool and read comments during TAR. I have some baking to do.

Night all :)))

lynn1 said...

See all of you over at Jackie's TAR page

Becky said...

Okay, changing blogs.

Jackie said...

Thank you all for stopping by!
