Survivor: Worlds Apart - April 29 Blog Party


Survivor fans ready?

When I checked the listing for tonight's show, it mentioned something to the effect of a "confrontational Tribal Council." Huh. Really? It seems like that's the norm rather than the exception!

As the show airs here, I'll update this post with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to "see" you there!

Before we get into the show, here are the latest blog pool standings from that Rockin' Lifeguard Laurie:

Carolyn - Jackie, TerryinTX
Dan - Brian, CherylinNC 
Mike - meb, Nickelpeed 
Rodney - Margo 
Shirin - NanaintheNW 
Sierra - Jennasmom 
Tyler - Donna in Alabama, ORK Mommy
Will - Rbennie 

Jury
Hali 
Joe
Jenn

Let's get started!

Dan pretends to sympathize with Shirin, then turns around and tells us how horrible he thinks she is. Pot/kettle/black in my opinion. 

Reward Challenge time -- divided into two teams, transport tribe members with planks and barrels and such across field.  The reward is a catamaran trip with burgers and pie. Woot woot. It's a schoolyard pick. Blue is Rodney, Mike, Shirin and Sierra. Red is Tyler, Dan, Will, Carolyn. Red wins!

The four remaining at camp killed off the last chicken. Rodney reminds us he hasn't won not one reward. Too bad, so sad. 

Sierra thinks they should get Tyler out, keep Shirin because no one would ever vote for her to win the million. Meanwhile, Rodney thinks he himself is the biggest threat and is sure to win. @@ 

Dan considers his group on Reward are his allies. We'll see if that sticks. 

Immunity Challenge time -- hold onto a rope handle attached to 25% of body weight, eventually weaken, drop water bucket on head. Last man and last woman both win Immunity. 

Sierra out, Tyler out, Will out, Dan out, Shirin out. Carolyn wins for the women. Rodney out. Mike wins Immunity (second time in a row) for the men.  

The plan is to take Shirin out tonight. She tells Dan they're all incredibly stupid to vote her out. What an approach! She pushes her vote Tyler out agenda. Meanwhile, Tyler snags Dan's bag to see what's inside. Tyler tells Carolyn about Dan's extra vote advantage. Tyler's worried.

Mike knows the vote is leaning towards Shirin. He tells us he could shake up the whole game by giving her his idol. Hmm. 

It's Tribal Council time once again. Back to the Will attack on Shirin during the last tribal. Shirin tries telling them that not voting out Tyler would lose them a million dollars as he's the biggest threat and she's no threat.

Mike pulls out the idol before the vote and says he'll use it on Shirin. Is it a bluff? Shirin will vote Tyler and he will randomly vote. Jeff calls it Survivor Roulette. 

He does NOT play the idol.

Tyler, Shirin, Dan, Tyler, Shirin, Dan, Shirin, Shirin.

Well played, guys. I didn't think he'd waste the idol on her when he needs it. Now they know he has it.

Hi Jackie and everyone who shows up.

I have pitchers of Strawberry Moscato Lemonade over at the bar. Fresh strawberries and lemons.... yummy

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone.

Hope all is well.

I thought Mike still had his idol. I guess it was the fake idol he used on Will.

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, that sounds SOOOOOO good!!!

Jackie said...

Hi, there! I thought he used it, too. But I guess not.

Nickelpeed said...

Little does he know, he is at the bottom of the alliance. Mike is telling the truth. Blind leading the blind.

Nickelpeed said...

I think Will is pretty bad. What he said was so mean. Dan is no better.

monty924 said...

Penny, I was in your neck of the woods over the weekend. Bowled in Dayton.

monty924 said...

Dan's a creep

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

Joe in NY said...

OK, this human verification is getting tough. I had a hard time identifying the sushi. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Most of these folks aren't terribly likeable. I mean, you can't really dislike them in most cases, but they aren't very lovable.

Joe in NY said...

Hard to imagine Blue getting all the way across without slipping onto the sand. MIke would have to have the best body control ever.

monty924 said...

Hey Joe! You can skip the WV. Just hit publish

Joe in NY said...

Do you have to use the planks. Kind of seems like you could just go from barrel to barrel.

Nickelpeed said...

Don't know who to root for.

Joe in NY said...

Hi MOnty

It seems to make me do the first verification. Or maybe I just got here before it was turned off.

David said...

Hi everyone here and future arrivals. =)

Just going to hang back and watch a while as I am finishing up some paperwork.

Nickelpeed said...

I dislike Rodney so, so much.

Nickelpeed said...

Cool. Where'd you go bowling, Monty

monty924 said...

I'm rooting for Mike even though I didn't like him in the beginning. I really dislike almost everyone left out there.

monty924 said...

We bowled at Capri Lanes and then Beaver Vu in Beavercreek. State tournament.

Joe in NY said...

I can't cheer for Mike, Rodney, Shirin, Dan or Mama C.

I don't feel like I know Sierra at all.

Nickelpeed said...

I really do not trust a lot of these people. All seem so dishonest. I hate people going through others bags and it disappointed me when Tyler did that to Dan. I do not like Dan, but that was so wrong.

I'm going to continue to root for Mike, not just because he's my pool pick, but because I think he does step up and takes responsibility when he needs to.

monty924 said...

Ah, forgot about Sierra. I don't have a problem with her.

Nickelpeed said...

What's your bowling average, Monty? You must be really good!! I haven't bowled for years. Used to be in a league years ago.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi all! I haven't been participating in the pool much lately, still recovering from some post-op surgery.

I've been lurking however & trying to keep up with the show. I too don't have a 'fave'. Not rooting for anyone in particular. Maybe Mike?? but the deck seems stacked against him.

Cheryl Sherman said...


Hi all...bettor late than never.

Nickelpeed said...

I like Sierra, too. The rest, forget it.

Dan is an idiot. Tyler is lying through his teeth. They know they they did this. I'm hoping everything goes wrong for them. Dan is too stupid.

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. Jackie, thank you for hosting. I am having trouble with my computer. Almost never got to the blog.

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. Jackie, thank you for hosting. I am having trouble with my computer. Almost never got to the blog.

Cheryl Sherman said...

Sierra is right though...I think tyler can and will win this game.

monty924 said...

My bowling average has gone down about 15 pins from around five years ago. Only bowl one night a week now and it shows. I think I ended with a 165 this season. I just go to the tournaments for the trip, the food and the fun. If I bowl good, that's icing on the cake. :))

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. Jackie, thank you for hosting. I am having major computer problems. I had trouble getting on the blog and my posts wouldn't post. Trying again.

Jackie said...

Ed- I hope the recovery is coming along well!

Jackie said...

Your comments are there, Becky!

Nickelpeed said...

Seeing your post, Becky. How you been feeling?

Ed, pray your recovery goes well.

Nickelpeed said...

Cool, man and woman.

I hope Mike gets this. I want to ruin the other's plans.

I hope Sierra wins for the women.

monty924 said...

Hi Ed & Becky. Hope all is going well Ed with your recovery.

Cheryl Sherman said...

interesting change

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Jackie! I had a few rough patches there for awhile but things are improving.

Nickelpeed said...

Let's see, Dan and Will will be the first 2 out. Maybe Shereez

Shut up Jeff!

Joe in NY said...

This should be interesting. You'd think Shirin has a chance here

Nickelpeed said...

Mama C is very focused. She has good control. I just do not want her to win.

Dang for Sierra. Darn.

Cheryl Sherman said...


agreed joe

monty924 said...

Mama C looks like a statue

Cheryl Sherman said...

isnt carolyn the cop...she should be in pretty decent shape

monty924 said...

Come on Mike

Joe in NY said...

How is Rodney even holding in there in that position? He must have incredibly strong forearms.

Nickelpeed said...

I was wrong, I though for sure Dan and Will would be first two out.

Dang, I did not want Carolyn to win. Crap.

Dan is very telling here. What a creep

monty924 said...

Yay, Mike

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Mike. Don't let Rodney get it. Mike knows he's in trouble.

YAYAYAYAYAY

Becky said...

Well, I see ALL my posts did appear. Come on Mike. Hang tough. WTG, Mike!

monty924 said...

Rodney is all talk

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I'm doing much better now.

It was an 'elective' surgery and neither I nor my doctors foresaw the unexpected complications.

Cheryl Sherman said...

wtg mike

Nickelpeed said...

Dan was so blantant. Mike heard that and he knows he's got to keep on winning.

Shirin will probably go home.

Joe in NY said...

Kind of amazing how quickly Mike dropped down the pecking order. Top to bottom in about 2 weeks.

Ed in Ohio said...

Mike wins again!

Nickelpeed said...

I am so sorry to hear that Ed. Hopefully, you are over that problem and things will go better now. Sending out prayers to you.

Becky said...

I wish they would turn on Dan. Then he could see that Mike was telling the truth. You know they are not going to vote Rodney out.

monty924 said...

I'd love to see them turn on Dan, Becky. I don't think they will this week, but they will eventually. He's too arrogant for me.

Nickelpeed said...

I know, Joe. It's something isn't it? Mike was there on top, but when they merged, things changed. Rodney really changed the dynamics with Mama C and Tyler. They are good at digging in, even though Mike is telling the truth.

David said...

Ohhh how I wish they would get rid of
Rodney but you are right, it will probably be Sharin.

Cheryl Sherman said...

i hope they send dn packing...which could happen once tyler finds out his advantage..hes gonna want to get rid of him

Nickelpeed said...

Two peas in a pod. Rodney is so nasty. I sure wish it would be one of the others going home.

Shirin is gone.

I would love to see the the tables turned. But, in this case, they won't change their minds.

Dan is disgusting.

Nickelpeed said...

Tyler already knows Dan's advantage. He got in to Dan's back pack and found the advantage.

Ed in Ohio said...

Shirin's workin' it! I'll give her that much.

monty924 said...

This could be Dan's night to go bye-bye

Nickelpeed said...

I spoke before it happened. LOL

Maybe this will change their minds.
Tyler is actually very smart. I wish Mike could turn the tables.

I hope he finds out Tyler got in to his bag. That would change everything. Dan is so stupid. Do not tell him, Mike. Do not tell him about the idol.

Cheryl Sherman said...

mike would be stupid to use in idol...geez

Nickelpeed said...

Don't do it Mike. Do not do this. However, if everyone votes Sharin and Mike votes Tyler, Tyler is gone. This would set up Mike to be targeted next week. Not good.

Nickelpeed said...

At least he was adopted. It is very different from being from an abusive home.

Nickelpeed said...

These people are horrible. Absolutely horrible. Very mean.

Joe in NY said...

It's worth considering if you are Mike. If he keeps the idol, it guarantees him one more week, but he has no allies. If he uses it, he might be able to flip Sierra and with Shirin that's 3 people and he only needs one more.

Nickelpeed said...

I do not like Sharin, but she has a point.

They are so stupid. Mike has been loyal, Rodney and Dan have not be loyal. It's stupid.

So, he's saying he's smarter than the rest, right?

Joe in NY said...

You'd think Will would want to make a pro forma apology.

Joe in NY said...

This is clever. He might not have to actually play it.

monty924 said...

Woohoo... I love it

Ed in Ohio said...

BOLD move!!!

Becky said...

Great move, Mike!

Nickelpeed said...

Why would he do that? I would have waited because all he and Sharin had to do was vote Tyler. Then give her the idol. Now, this is going to be good.

Cheryl Sherman said...

i hope they dont tyler out....i like him..hes the only one i can take

Joe in NY said...

I love the looks on their faces.

SueGee said...

Sorry I'm so late but it is my husband's birthday and I had to make enchiladas for him. Should have started earlier LOL


SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

It's like playing chicken.

monty924 said...

Will Dan use his extra???

Nickelpeed said...

They voted Dan, you watch.

Joe in NY said...

The question is: did anyone expect Mike to pocket it and stick to the plan.

Ed in Ohio said...

Bluffed! Will it work?

Joe in NY said...

Dan is quickly discovering where he is in the alliance.

monty924 said...

Crap!!

Cheryl Sherman said...

i am confused

Nickelpeed said...

Why didn't he use it????

Ed in Ohio said...

Nice try Mike! Too bad it didn't work.

monty924 said...

Should have got rid of Dan

Nickelpeed said...

At least they know he has it. That surprised me.

Joe in NY said...

That's a good play. He guarantees safety next week. Dan's been educated on his position. Should be fun next week.

Jackie said...

Penny - He needs to keep it for himself. He knows he's the biggest target.

Joe in NY said...

Actually pretty smart by the 4 who voted Shirin. They figured that worst case scenario Tyler goes home.

Becky said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie. I am pulling for Mike. Joe was my favorite and I do not like any of the others.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, at least he has the idol and brought out the turncoats. We'll see what happens next week. Will they hate Mike more?

Joe in NY said...

I still don't much like Mike, but I have to respect that play. He got the most out of the idol. And now the 6 know they have to turn on each other which will force them to scramble. The only problem is that even if Dan and Sierra realize they are on the bottom, it's still 4 against 3.

Cheryl Sherman said...

that true joe..even if he doesnt win imuunity he plays his idol to stay next week....he bought himself another week

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you so much, Jackie. See everyone Friday. I work next Wednesday and Friday. But will be here for the finale!!!

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a good evening.

Nickelpeed said...

Dan still has two votes. So, it would be 4-4.

monty924 said...

Hahaha, looks like next week will be good!! Thanks Jackie. Will see everyone next week.

Ed in Ohio said...

Good Night All! Thanks Jackie!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, thank God for DVRs, I work next week so I'll miss the next episoe. Darn. :-(
