Survivor: Cambodia, Second Chance Season Premiere Blog Party


I think we're in for a great season on the show. After all, these people, while not an "All Stars" kind of cast, have all played the game before. Many are no spring chickens these days and yet they'll be playing with/against some young alpha male types. It should be very interesting!

Because the blog pool gives back its first cast-off, akin to throwing a fish caught back to sea, you still have time to join in! The post where you need to sign up is at this link right here. Come join in on the fun and, remember, tonight's cast off won't be a part of our action. The cut-off date for joining the pool is Friday, September 25, 6pm ET. Please sign up on the post linked as any requests in comments on this season premiere post might get lost in the shuffle.

I'll be updating this post with the major events as the show airs here on the East Coast. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As we do what we do ... the real party is in the comments area. C'mon in and have a good time!

Let's get this party started! Survivor fans ready?

Nice scenes of the country (Cambodia) and, so far, a good intro segment for each new-old castaway.

They're divided onto two boats as Jeff greets them from a larger third boat. Twenty players from thirty seasons. He's calling out the tribes too quickly for me to list right now. Both tribes get off their boats and are timed getting supplies from his boat, then one tribe gets to go for rice on another boat. Now it's off for the rice.

Kelly and Joe both swim for it. Woo gets to the bag of rice first.

The tribes:
Bayon - Andrew Savage, Jeremy Collins, Joe Anglim, Keith Nale, Stephen Fishbach, Ciera Eastin, Kass McQuillen, Kimmi Kappenberg, Monica Padilla, and Tasha Fox.
Ta Keo - Jeff Varner, Spencer Bledsoe, Terry Deitz, Vytas Baskauskas, Woo Hwang, Abi-Maria Gomes, Kelly Wiglesworth, Kelley Wentworth, Peih-Gee Law, and Shirin Oskooi.

Terry approaches Spencer and said his son told him to work with him. Spencer seems definitely open to the idea.

Meanwhile elsewhere, Abi is already fussing because her bag is missing. That's going to turn others off right away.

Jeremy makes nice with Keith, thinking that he, Tasha and Savage are his best alliance bets. He thinks Joe is the best "shield" he can have, too. Joe, Savage and Jeremy are going to be quite the formidable trio powerhouse.

Fishbach says he once again feels like a "fishbach out of water." He's worried about his future with the tribe.

Vytas is playing up to the women; Shirin is already out for blood from him and reports to Jeff and Spencer. She's also on the prowl to get Peih-Gee out. Jeff is in culture shock with the jumping into the fray so quickly. Abi found her missing bracelet in Peih-Gee's bag. Hmm. Peih-Gee tells her that she found a bag with no name tag on it and didn't know. Hmm.

Meanwhile, Joe is trying to make fire scraping wood. Kass suggests using her glasses. And, the others see Fishbach out there looking for an idol. Joe is successful making his fire. All cheer!

There's already division in Ta Keo -- old school/new school, shelter people/beach people. Peih-Gee is already leery of Shirin. (Rightfully so.)

Kelley Wentworth found a clue to the hidden idol while on coconuts and palm fronds task.

The tribes get tree mail telling them that the first challenge will be the same one as the first challenge ever on the show. Tasha is giggly girlie over Joe. Heehee. Kelley thinks Vytas is annoying and wants him out. For some reason, Joe's yoga class all seemed to like him. Vytas had a lot of detractors right off the bat. Vytas thinks Abi is going to be the first pick for out.

We're onto the challenge. Reward is a fire-making kit. Quest for Fire is the challenge -- swimming out to raft, all must be there to swim it and light fires through the course, then bring fire ashore, place raft on stand, stick and rope to retrieve a key, open a lock, light final fire to win. Kelley is glancing around for the hidden idol as her clue indicated it's there. But she's too nervous to really search. She doesn't want them onto her.

Kelley got the idol! Woot for her!

Bayon wins Immunity!

Whoa! Jeff tells Ta Keo they're going to Tribal right now. Yikes. Kelly (Wiglesworth) feels guilty, like she let everyone down trying to build the stick to get the key. But I doubt they're going to target her. Nor do I think Kelley with the idol needs to worry.

Tribal Council. Jeff is asking his generally Probsting questions. Woo brings up the old school/new school ways. The guys talk about tribe unity reasons for voting. Abi thinks she's in trouble and would be heartbroken if she goes. They claim there's been a lot of gameplay and most aren't just voting on a whim tonight.

Woo and Vytas vote Abi. Abi votes Vytas.

The votes tally, Jeff mentions the idol, no one speaks up.

Vytas, Abi, Vytas, Abi, Vytas, Abi, Vytas, Abi, Vytas, Vytas.

Vytas is the first voted out. Yikes!

Hi Jackie and all who come to the party. I'm sitting in the shallow end for Survivor waiting for the BIG party later. I really should have took that nap!

monty924 said...

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Jackie said...

Hey, guys!

monty924 said...

Thanks, Suegee... I'm starving. Hey Penny

monty924 said...

HI Becky... it's going to be a long night :))

Ed in Ohio said...

Survivors Ready?! Busy Night tonite Jackie!

Becky said...

I have a large pot of boiled shrimp.

Glenn said...

Hi Everyone!

Anonymouse said...

Cmon Steve. Woops that's later.

Nickelpeed said...

Oooooh Becky, the shrimp sounds sooooooo good!

Nickelpeed said...

I have Moscato! Yum, yum.

SueGee said...

Anyone taking bets on the BB finale?? This one really comes down to the final HOH tonight... So glad its over!!

SueGee

Anonymouse said...

Ice cold Yuengling Lager here

Anonymouse said...

And Maryland crab cakes

monty924 said...

I'm sipping on iced tea and eating this great shrimp and brats. I keep telling myself that tonight is a marathon and not a sprint!! ;-)

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, I'll say it now....come on Spencer....play a better game!!!

monty924 said...

Shout out to my homie, Ed!

Anonymouse said...

I grew up watching. Not smart Joe

Nickelpeed said...

I dont' know if that was a good thing to say. They all know Kelly is burning to win this game.

monty924 said...

Whatever tribe gets Kass will regret the day

SueGee said...

That's why I come in here!! I can watch the end of BB tomorrow and go to bed on time. I have a Doctor appt at 8am for some reason tomorrow and I need my beauty sleep for sure!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, who do each of you think will be the first one voted off???

Becky said...

Keith reminds me of a Darrell from the old Bob Newhart Show. You know, Larry who had a brother named Darrell and another brother Darrell.

Anonymouse said...

Kass

monty924 said...

I hope these second chancers don't blow it with the chicken this season. The HEN lays eggs people. lol

Nickelpeed said...

SueGee....

Sleep's overrated! LOL

Anonymouse said...

My mom has a sister Ann and another sister Sister Ann. True story.

Ed in Ohio said...

Back @ ya' Monty :)

Abi....lol I remember her@@

monty924 said...

Mouse, Kass was the worst on her season. He changed alliances every single episode.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, Woo overtook Kelly. Wow.

SueGee said...

The first voted off some seasons is for reasons you never hear or see on TV. They try and plot it all out, but if you talk to people that have actually been on the show it can be the little things that get you gone!!

SueGee

Petals said...

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

Hey everyone!!

Ready for a fun, crazy night??
I have 5lbs of fresh, pipin' hot boiled shrimp. There are 2 kegs of beer and 6 bottles of
champagne chilling.

LOVE Woo, Joe and Deitz!

Anonymouse said...

I meant first out

Anonymouse said...

Kass

monty924 said...

Wait, I think you were responding to Penny's question, lol. I'd vote Kass off in a heartbeat.

Anonymouse said...

Kass

SueGee said...

George Foreman named all of his boys George, and he has several!

SueGee

SueGee said...

Anyone bring dessert LOL???

SueGee

Becky said...

Ann and Sister Ann. Even as slow aas I am I figured that out.... I think.

monty924 said...

SueGee... we're saving the desserts and salads for BB. I have two amazing ones compliments of the local farmers market. :))

Anonymous said...

I like many of these survivors, going to be hard to choose a favorite...hopefully, my pool person will make it easier.

ChicMc

monty924 said...

*oops... three actually ;-)

Nickelpeed said...

Kass was a backstabber. She never kept her promises. She was not a nice person.

David said...

Hello everyone. =)

Up for a long night. Just drank a cup of coffee to make sure my eyes are open and ready for it.

I do hope they get rid of Kass first if that tribe loses. Can't believe she got voted back in this season. lol

monty924 said...

Kass is the absolute worst of this cast. Just my opinion and watch her win it all, LOL

SueGee said...

Thanks Monty...I do have a watermelon to share, but was thinking about something with ice cream tonight LOL

Anonymouse said...

Spencer learned something.

Nickelpeed said...

I'd like to see Abi leave, also.

Becky said...

I brought some Adams Pecan Pie Ice Cream. Have any of you eaten it?

monty924 said...

Oh, SueGee... you won't be disappointed then when it comes BB time. I have a couple cobblers baking in the oven and you can't have cobbler without ice cream. :)))

Becky said...

If you see it in the store buy some.

Anonymous said...

Who voted Abi back? Hard to believe that she has a large fan base.

ChicMc

SueGee said...

Sound lovely Becky..

And Monty - I have some French Vanilla that would be real nice on cobbler!!

Becky said...

Keith is such a Bubba.

Nickelpeed said...

I just saw where Caleb from last BB is going to be on Survivor 2016. Really?? LOL

Petals said...

Dessert...Hmm.

I'll buzz Joe and see if he'll swing by the market on his way here and
grab some strawberries and pound cake.

Abi - really?? How on Earth did she get the votes to return?

SueGee said...

Caleb will not last at all on Survivor! Too much of a pretty boy imho

Petals said...

I wish Joe was on the other team, with the other cool guys.

monty924 said...

OFF TOPIC: One hour until BB

Dang, who cuts down a tree on night one? These guys are playing hard.

Nickelpeed said...

IMO, Petals, there were a lot of other more deserving people left out.

Uh oh, Stephen doesn't like what he sees. I'm betting he's going to try to target Savage.

monty924 said...

Strawberries are in my salad for BB, Petals

Nickelpeed said...

That ice cream sounds GREAT, Becky!!!

monty924 said...

Penny, it's true about Caleb. That season has already filmed and they will show it next after this season.

SueGee said...

This group knows what needs to get done on day 1... They are going to play hard and that is what will make it interesting!

Nickelpeed said...

And, he's on the beauty tribe, Monty!!! Yikes. Well, hopefully, he'll bring some comic relief.

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. You are the best!

monty924 said...

I agree and think this season could very well shape up to the best season ever. I'm hoping for a lot of really big blindsides and a lot of us wondering what in the world they are doing, LOL

Sharon N said...

Hi everyone! As usual, I'm late and not able to watch for another 30 minutes!! But it's still fun joining everyone here at the real party. It's a whole entire evening of parties!!!

Anonymouse said...

Just hope it isn't too predictable. Like alpha male marching to top 7 or so before turning on each other

Becky said...

Penny and Sue Gee, it is wonderful! It is by Adams Vanilla Company and tastes like real pecan pie.

Nickelpeed said...

I do like this extended version. You get to know more about the survivors.

Ed in Ohio said...

Maybe BB should try this? Let the fans vote in the cast from former players. Not necessarily All Stars.

At least they'd have some idea of how the game should be played.

Petals said...

Cobbler, awesome.
YAY!



SueGee said...

Penny - We probably don't get that brand out here on the leftcoast, but I will look.

Nickelpeed said...

Mid-life Quest. I like that.

Aww, that baby monkey is so cute!!!

monty924 said...

I agree, Ed. I would love a second chances game of BB. Hope the powers that be listen to us viewers.

Petals said...

grrrr - I don't like that Shirin chick.

awwww - that was the CUTEST THING IN THE WORLD! That lil cute monkey angel! <3

Becky said...

I wonder who dropped it into the bag, Abi-Marie needs to go.

Ed in Ohio said...

Abi...Abi...Abi!!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I would not miss PheeGee if she left either.

They are showing a lot of Abi, so maybe she does leave....hopefully.

Ed in Ohio said...

I didn't know monkeys could whistle like that!

SueGee said...

Shirin is a local and getting lots of play from the local CBS outlet. I bet she goes early LOL

Anonymouse said...

Should, but wont

Nickelpeed said...

They're going to target someone really weak, or a guy whom they do not trust.

Jackie said...

I can't see Kimmie without thinking of Alicia wagging her finger at her during their shouting match.

Petals said...

I hope she does.
Already, the catty women are putting targets on their own backs with all this
petty BS about bracelets & whatnot. Good, let them! Leave my boys alone and
get rid of the troublemakers.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey Petals, How's the ankle?

SueGee said...

In the normal all-star casts, they usually go after the strong/almost won types first if they can. If not eliminated early, they almost always win (Boston Rob)


Nickelpeed said...

I'm actually glad she found that. We got to see so little of her in her last Survivor. Now, let's see if she's bold enough.

Ed in Ohio said...

Interesting twist on the hidden idol clue! Not sure how to play it.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Petals, how are your ankles? Hope they are healing well.

Petals said...

Hi Ed! It's mending. Tomorrow will be one week from surgery; it hurts A LOT, but I have drugs. Thanks for asking, my friend. *smile*

Joega - yeah baby!! Sign me UP! I'd like to see Woo doing it.

Vitas, give it UP. You look like you borrowed a 9 yr olds swim trunks.

Nickelpeed said...

Probably so, SueGee. I'm guessing they'll go after one of the weaklings or someone like Terry, Savage, Vytas, Woo, or Joe. They could even target the brainy guys like Stephen,

Vytas needs to quit being so annoying.

Anonymouse said...

Wish that whole tribe could go.

monty924 said...

I cannot believe Vanessa is wearing her green beanie for the finale @@

Sharon N said...

Petals,
Glad to hear your ankle is getting better... glad you still have drugs to help with the pain. Thank goodness, it shouldn't be much longer and the pain will be a bad memory. :)

Nickelpeed said...

I am terrible at trying to find good spoilers, but haven't found any yet. And, yes, just so you all know, if it's a good book, I do read the end of it. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I should say, I read the end of the book before I finish it. LOL

monty924 said...

I haven't even hit the hard stuff and already have hiccups. I'm in a world of hurt for later.

You all know if they are making us think that Abi Maria is in jeopardy, it will be anyone but her.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't want them all to leave, mouse, just some of them. Like Abi, PheeGee, and maybe Vytas.

monty924 said...

Penny, I do the same thing. There hasn't been any good Surivor spoilers since Russell last played. I think that's a clue to who was providing and the big ones then. :))

Petals said...

I am NWB for 10 weeks, which is the most difficult. I am supposed to stay in bed for 2 weeks, but who can do that? lol

monty924 said...

Petals, who was it that told you to use your computer chair to get around? That is a great idea and you should do it while you are NWB. It's impossible to stay in bed for that time and you shouldn't anyways. More problems from that too.

monty924 said...

I love Keith but dang....

SueGee said...

I keep seeing people on scooter thingys with their knees bent instead of crutches. I would probably crash and there goes the mobility!!

Ed in Ohio said...

She should go for it while no one's looking

monty924 said...

She got it!!!! YES

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, Reality Steve used to give them, but he was sued, so he doesn't do it any more.

monty924 said...

Yay!!!

Cheryl in NC said...

Hi all....I m glad i made it before bb anyway

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I figured Takao would lose because they showed too much of the tribe. Hope it's Abi.

Spencer is so right. LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Straight to tribal! No wheelin' & dealin'

Petals said...

Monty - my computer chair isn't an office chair, so it didn't really work. I use Gary's rolly walker and push myself around. The one local place that has knee rollers have me on a list (all are rented=out)

I hate that Shirin chick, WTH is up with her "who farted" face? Vote her or Abi OUT!

Anonymouse said...

And Sharin

SueGee said...

I used to look for spoilers on Survivor Sucks..

monty924 said...

RS, isn't that reliable Penny. He's made predictions/spoilers mostly for Bach and Bachette and has been wrong a couple of times. I think his hay day was back in the early days of spoiling those two shows and since then he gets bad or innacurate info. I also think he's kind of a d-bag, lol

Anonymouse said...

Love that

Becky said...

Monty, I have a great cure for hiccups. I found it on line when DH got them after his surgery last year. A spoonful of honey. It honestly works.

Petals, glad you are fighting back. Oh, and Penny, I am the world's worst for reading the end of the book before getting there. And it does not spoil the book for me.

monty924 said...

Hope you get one, Petals. The knee rollers are an excellent option.

SueGee said...

I can't wait until I can watch this for myself LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too, SueGee, but they don't even speculate any more.

monty924 said...

Becky, my mom's hiccup cure was a shot glass for on lemon juice. It works, but I don't have any, LOL. The hiccups are gone naturally now so I'll be ready to drink up when BB starts. I'm going to hit that keg that Petals brought and then the champagne. :))

Nickelpeed said...

Reality Steve started out spoiling Survivor. He used to be right until he was sued. He then stopped posting about it.

Petals said...

SueG - that is a knee roller (or knee walker). That is the recommended equipment for me. I'll be getting one soon. I can buy one for a few hundred bucks, or rent one for $35 week.

OMG, 12 minutes until BB. I am so nervous about Steve throwing Part 3 to VANilla Ice. And, of course, I have conspiracy theory that production has already decided that she is gonna win, and DR has fed her the answers already. Hence her super-confidence the past coupla days. Grrrr. (Jackie, I know you love my conspiracy theories, LOL *wink*)

monty924 said...

SurviorFever use to be my go to place but they don't have the spoilers now like they did years ago.

SueGee said...

Your insurance might cover it.. I got a wheelchair when I broke my ankle but the dummies gave me one that wouldn't fit through the doors inside my house so I sent it back! I bet you can find a used one on eBay or something like that. My husband lives on eBay, rebuilt his entire 1965 Chevy pickup from parts he found there,,


Ed in Ohio said...

They're sure makin' it look like it's Abi

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, your conspiracy theory could be right. Steve could very well through the final HOH to Vanessa. He'd be stupid to do so, but I can see it happening.

Nickelpeed said...

Vytas or Abi. Uhmmmmm. The girls will vote Vytas. Boys, Abi.

monty924 said...

I'm psyched for BB to start

SueGee said...

I'm psyched for BB to be done with!!!!

monty924 said...

Nooooooo!! Abi survives

Becky said...

I had hoped it would be Abi.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, Which guy voted Vytas? Jeff or Spencer?

Petals said...

My insurance does cover it, 100% for DME, after ded (and ded is met).

Gary takes a spoonful of sugar, that works for him.

Penny & Becky - me too! I totally read the last few pages of a book. I also read every review & synopsis of a film before I see it.

Whoooooo!!!!
I love watching a show where the person evicted is the RIGHT ONE. LOL. Sorry Vytas, next time, don't borrow a 3rd graders' underwear.

Nickelpeed said...

My personal opinion....they made a mistake.

monty924 said...

Go the cobblers out and ready to head over to the other pool

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty you're right about the editing....too obvious!

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, I'm glad someone else does that with movies, too. LOL

SueGee said...

Ok Break time. Will be back for some cobbler!!

SueGee

Becky said...

Jackie, are you starting a new page?

Nickelpeed said...

Vytas came on way too strong. Tried way too hard.

I like that they go right to tribal after they lose the IC

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow all you ladies cut right to the chase! with Books/Movies

Becky said...

Penny, I agree.

Petals said...

*priming kegs* We have Stella and Bud Light.
Red Solo cups are stacked on the bar.

Thank you so much, Jackie ! I'm keeping things orderly here by the bar area, and so far, nothing has spilled in to the pool.

Ciao to the Survivor-only people. Please consider sticking around to party the BB finale with us.

xoxoxoxox Here we gooooooo

Nickelpeed said...

I didn't realize CSI was ending.

Becky said...

Ed, it beats staying up all night just to finish a book.

Donna in FL said...

I would have voted Shirin or Abi out. But I'm not playing!

Nickelpeed said...

See everyone on the BB blog!! And, see everyone next Wednesday!!!

Yep, guessed the two guys who voted Vytas. LOL

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

See everyone on the BB post.

Sharon N said...

Petals, in bed for 2 weeks? yuk That's really hard to do when you are normally really active and have responsibilities. A little unrealistic, but the surgeon probably doesn't want to chance you falling and messing up his handiwork.

If you know anyone with a walker, you can use one of those around the house... put your knee on the seat and scoot around the house. My daughter found one of those the knee scooters on Craig's list... got it for a really good price. She has to have foot/arch surgery soon and plans to use the walker in the house, and keep the scooter in the car.
