Kelly Wiglesworth - ML, Sharon N, Indiana Jane

Survivor fans ready?

After the recap, Jeremy tries to make good with Tasha for not including her on the voting block plan to oust Wiglesworth. She accepts his explanation, but will be on guard from now on. They try to convince Joe the move was for the best. Yeah, he'll buy that, right?

It's raining again and they're miserable. Ciera is feeling better about her game, but is bothered by the rain. Keith is taking the elements a lot better. He's thinking of the million. 

Reward - Two teams of five, taken away from the weather, roof overhead, food, blankets, Cambodian service. It's a water-based basketball game.

Joe, Tasha, Cierra, Spencer and Abi win Reward. It was rough! At Reward, Cierra proposes blindsiding Stephen. Back at camp, the others are talking about taking Joe out. Meanwhile, Stephen thinks he's in a pretty good secure spot right now.

But then Stephen gets sick and even cries to us. 

And the rain poured on. 

Immunity Challenge time! They each have to take a black rock and a white rock. Balance on one foot on a small block while balancing a ball on a piece of wood. The rain has stopped. Jeff makes a proposal -- construction crew will build the shelter, roof and fire ... but five people must give up their chance of immunity in this challenge. Will be determined by rocks. White giving up. All willing to give up except Joe and Keith! The challenge will be those two only. The shelter will be improved as all they needed was five to get the work done.

Joe wins once again! 

Stephen is excited about the new shelter. He also is thinking of trying to put the target on Ciera. No surprise there. She's working to get rid of him, too.

The new shelter came with food, too.  

They're a bit worried about Stephen's advantage he won last episode. Tasha is thinking that Ciera should go. Spencer, Tasha, Joe and Jeremy pretty much decide it should be Ciera. But Joe is a bit reluctant -- he'd rather Stephen go. So does Spencer.

Tribal Council time. 

The tally:
Before Jeff starts, he asks if anyone has a hidden idol to play. We hear, "Hey, Jeff" and then into commercial. It was a male voice. We know Jeremy has two idols, but really has no need to play either for himself. It could have been Stephen with his advantage (take a vote away from someone).

Whoa, Jeremy uses an idol to save Stephen! 

Fishbach, Fishbach, Fishbach, Fishbach, Fishbach, Ciera, Ciera, Kimmi, Kimmi, Ciera.

Since the votes for Stephen Fishbach didn't count, my blog pool person Ciera gets the the boot.  

Stephen is wondering who all turned on him and kicking himself for not realizing it was going on. Plus, his feet are all hugely swollen and bit/cut up. He's overwhelmed.

Reward has them getting Cambodian history questions, answering them correctly and receiving medallions. The winner gets a chopper ride and feast. Heh. Abi got one wrong because Fishbach fooled her. Spencer led for most of it, but Fishbach won by a few seconds. He first chooses Tasha to go with him, then Jeremy as a second person. 

Kelley found an idol clue during Reward. It leads her to the shelter itself. 

Knowing that Tasha put his name down last time, Stephen decided to build trust and tells Tasha and Jeremy that his advantage is to steal a vote during Tribal. 

Back at camp, they're talking Fishbach (Stephen) again. Abi proposes that she should be allowed to win the next Immunity. Ha.  

They decide it has to be either Stephen or Tasha going. Kelley sees her chance to search for the idol with only Abi left in camp. She gets it and recovers just in time as the others return to camp from their various distractions.

Immunity Challenge -- Only using their feet, they use a rope to drop blocks in a basket, then stack the blocks. Fishbach has problems because of his "prehistoric" feet.

SPENCER wins Immunity ... the first person other than Joe since individual immunity. Uh-oh. Joe be in trouble. But we know Spencer is leery of Jeremy, Tasha and Fishbach now. Hmm.

The consensus seems to be Joe. But Kelley has a plan to blindside Stephen.  Abi is creating all kinds of drama. She was initially in on the blindside Stephen plan but now wants to vote Joe.  Stephen tells Jeremy and Spencer that he will use his advantage to steal Abi's vote and make sure Joe goes.

Tribal Council -- Stephen uses his advantage. He's stealing Joe's vote and using it for himself.  Stephen's vote is for Abi and he has Joe voting for Joe.

The tally:
Joe, Abi, Fishbach, Joe, Abi, Abi, Fishbach, Fishbach, Fishbach.

Stephen Fishbach got his blindside! He's outta there! 

Next week is the loved ones episode and a hint at a serious medical emergency.

Hi Jackie. Everybody must be cooking or traveling. I've got a crock pot full of rump roast, potatoes, carrots and onions.

monty924 said...

Oh, and the wine and beer. Help yourself :)))

SueGee said...

Hi Jackie & Monty & Vincent of course.

Dinner sounds good! We aren't leaving until the morning and then its just a 2 hour drive north to the redwoods.

SueGee

And my condolences Monty on Saturday's game

Jackie said...

Hi! I was wondering if anyone would show!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Monty, SueGee, & Jackie!

Quiet night tonight. Two hour show...wow!

monty924 said...

Hey SueGee. Yes, it was a heart breaker, but the only game that matters to a true Buckeye is this Saturday :)))

SueGee said...

I keep wondering what Savage was talking about when he says something is going to happen to change the game like they have never seen in all 30 seasons

monty924 said...

Hey Homie

SueGee said...

You need to take care of Harbaugh for me. Never liked him and never will LOL

SueGee said...

Hi Ed..my condolences to you too over last Saturday.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Homiee!

It was a rainy day in Columbus last Saturday, in more ways than one. I was not happy with our play calling, but no excuses here.......they beat us....we lost!

Bring on 'big blue'!

David said...

Hi Jackie, Monty, and SueGee.

I am here, recovering from the flu. Just realized I haven't eaten anything since Saturday night. Feeling much better and that sounds good Monty. I will take a big bowl, don't waste time on a plate. =)

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks SueGee, Like they say...."you can't win them all"

David said...

And Hi Ed. =) Missed you while I was typing being a hunt and peck slow typer.

SueGee said...

Hope you are feeling better after you eat David!

monty924 said...

Hey David.

SueGee, well one thing that happens this season is... we don't have the ReCap episode on the night before Thanksgiving. Instead we get two hours of new footage :))

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey David, Hope you're feelin' better!

SueGee said...

I was praying that we got two new ones tonight and not the re-cap LOL We all apparently think alike in here...and as we used to say in the old AOL chats GMTA

Ed in Ohio said...

These folks are rain-soaked!

monty924 said...

SueGee, check this out during a commercial or after Survivor. We don't like Harbaugh either, LOL

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOGIBQ1EnpA

monty924 said...

It's good David. Hope you're feeling better.

Jackie said...

Sue - I posted a spoiler in my comments earlier in Facebook about the two hour show.

David said...

Noooo, not Abi. She does not deserve to go on a reward.

Jackie said...

I'll tell if you wish.

monty924 said...

Oh, I know the spoiler you're talking about Jackie. It will be interesting to see if they take Jeff up on it.

SueGee said...

FB is messing with my feed and sometimes I see your posts and sometimes just the comments later :(

I'm here because I love spoilers LOL

Laurie said...

Hello everyone. Hope you all have a good Thanksgiving tomorrow. Meanwhile, so glad we get to eat virtual food tonight!

Jackie said...

monty924 said...

That has to be miserable. All that rain and you can't get dry no matter how...

Ed in Ohio said...

Highway to H...H...Harbaugh

That was cool Monty. Thanks for sharing!

My Buckeyes get Jim this week & my Brownies get brother John ( not expecting much from the Browns but GO BUCKS!

SueGee said...

Nice one Monty. You have to remember the whole show is one big blank for me for the next couple hours...I have to lean on you guys and Jackie's prose!

And my dislike of Harbaugh goes back to 1st the Stanford tenure (I'm a CAL fan) and then he totally changed the face of the 49ers and I couldn't hardly stand them anymore. Thank goodness we have Jack Del Rio back in Oakland. (local boy)

SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

I know, Ed. Love the Dead Schembechlers. I got to go to their 2010 Hate Show at Skully's on High Street. Those guys are awesome, LOL. My brother actually knows all of them from the band/music scene in C-bus. Three of them have actual bands that play the area. Watershed is one of them.

monty924 said...

I keep forgetting that you're in California, SueGee. You always come to party with us east coasters. :))

Ed in Ohio said...

SueGee, I like Cal's QB Jared Goff. Watched him play a few times, shows a lot of promise IMO.

SueGee said...

I grew up in Chicagoland - does that count? My sister went to Miami U but now lives in northern Michigan....

SueGee

SueGee said...

Yes, best QB since Aaron Rogers at CAL. Goff is only a Junior too

monty924 said...

Ed, check them out. The lead guitarist and base player are from the band Watershed

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watershed_(American_band)

SueGee said...

I wonder if the big question is in the first show or second??

monty924 said...

Looks like it will be in the second hour, SueGee

monty924 said...

Nope... here it is

Ed in Ohio said...

Tough choice!

monty924 said...

They got their shelter. No come on Keith!!!

monty924 said...

You know Joe's going to win this

Ed in Ohio said...

Abi's not likin' Joe!

monty924 said...

Joe wins 4th immunity

Ed in Ohio said...

Mano a Mano, Joe wins again!

monty924 said...

Joe's hurting his shot at getting far in the game, but he sort of has to

David said...

Whoaa, a real shelter on survivor. And I missed the suspense of Jackie asking if she should tell because someone called me. Don't they know that survivor is on. Sheeeesh.

SueGee said...

Go Joe!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Was that 4 in a row?! That will probably work against Joe later on in the game

SueGee said...

Funny how the one with a target on their back figures out who they need to put a target on themselves LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty I checked out the bands on wiki, thanks!

Brings back memories. I was in a band back in the day.

monty924 said...

Who will it be? Fish or Ciera... I say Ciera on this one

Ed in Ohio said...

I second Ciera

monty924 said...

Cool, Ed. My brother is the front man/lead singer for a hard rock band in C-bus and my other half was/is a drummer. He hasn't been in a band since the late seventies, but he can still tear up the drum kit :))

David said...

Get rid of the Fish if that is the two choices. Who they REALLY should be getting rid of is Abi. Sheeesh

monty924 said...

David, they will drag Abi along as long as they can.

monty924 said...

Wow, Go Jeremy

monty924 said...

She's gone!!

David said...

They always make that mistake. thinking we will drag this goat along and the goat turns around and bites them where the sun doesn't shine. Just happened with BB. Vanessa I am sure regrets that decision.

monty924 said...

Ciera will be a bitter jury member as much as she likes to say that she's just playing the game

Ed in Ohio said...

Bold move Jeremy.....all-in with Fish

monty924 said...

True, David... but I don't think any of them would vote for Abi in the end even if she makes it to final three.

SueGee said...

They may drag Abi to the end just so they know they have all the votes...old strategy but it does work

Ed in Ohio said...

Man that's some funky feet!

monty924 said...

Cool challenge

monty924 said...

Poor Keith, lol

monty924 said...

Go Pool Girl

Ed in Ohio said...

I like this challenge! Mental & physical.

monty924 said...

Go Fish

monty924 said...

Wow... he already had Jeremy. He should have chose someone else.

David said...

lol, how hard is it really to fool Abi. Guess Fish needed that wake-up call. He was not sitting as pretty as he thought.

Jackie said...

It reminded me a bit of Season 1 where Rudy kept running through the jungle to questions and saying, "I don't know."

Ed in Ohio said...

Fish & Jeremy are 'marked men' now.......might be good for Joe!

SueGee said...

Rudy was funny!!

monty924 said...

I'm probably the only one here who has never seen season 1 of survivor. I keep meaning to go back and watch it.

SueGee said...

It was very different Monty, but got me hooked

Ed in Ohio said...

I saw season one, remember it well. But did miss some seasons in between.

SueGee said...

I wasn't going to watch the show but found myself in a hotel room with nothing much to do and watched the first show of the first season....

Ed in Ohio said...

Ya' know........Abi does have kind of a cute bod!

But that's about all I can say good about her.

monty924 said...

True that, Ed :)))

David said...

I have seen every episode of survivor. I remember season 1 pretty well, can't say that about all the seasons in between though. Just like BB, once the season is over I kind of wipe it from my mind. Took me a few minutes to remember Vanessa's name and still can't remember the winners name. I have always been bad with names though.

Jackie said...

I created the AOL Message Board for the first Survivor. I had to watch! I pegged Hatch as the winner by the second episode.

Jackie said...

David - Steve Moses. But, at the photo contest at the local library a few weeks ago, a friend I seem to only see there mentioned he wanted Steve Moses to win all along, my memory went away for a bit.

Ed in Ohio said...

Can Joe do it for a fifth time??

SueGee said...

I'm like that too David. Season over - mind wiped clean with a few exceptions. I have met quite a few of the player from Survivor and a few from TAR because I used to work with someone that was on the show twice! The ones I have met I remember LOL

monty924 said...

Nasty feet aren't good for this one

monty924 said...

Joe's dethroned. Good job, Spencer

SueGee said...

Leave it to Joe to go the night Petals isn't here LOL

David said...

LOL, that's it Jackie, Steve. He never should have got that far but still glad it was him over Vanessa to win. Don't try and make me remember either of the twins names, I can't. LMAO

monty924 said...

LOL @ David. Liz and Julia... I can remember because a had a two-fer in the pool. hehehe

Ed in Ohio said...

Joe's mine kind of guy.....Fish not so much!

Oh well that's the way the ball bounces.

Ed in Ohio said...

^ my...not 'mine' lol!

monty924 said...

And the plot thickens. Leave it to Abi

Ed in Ohio said...

Of all people ....Abi's gonna get to decide?!

David said...

And the Abi curse bites them in the rear again. lol Vote out Abi.

Ed in Ohio said...

Ciera rollin' eyes

David said...

If Steven does that he will incur the curse of Abi.

monty924 said...

They'll vote Fish out now

Ed in Ohio said...

Could it be Abi?

monty924 said...

WTH? I'm confused by Stephen's votes

monty924 said...

LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Yes!!

SueGee said...

Don't leave me in the dark here

David said...

What a waste of an advantage. That made no sense.

SueGee said...

YEAH I like that vote!!

Have a good Turkey Day everyone and hope to see you Friday night!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

Fishbach split his two votes. He should have put both towards Joe or Abi. He cut his own throat, LOL

monty924 said...

Everyone have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. SueGee, be safe on your drive north. I have the same thing... two hours north.

Thanks Jackie and will see you later.

GO BUCKS!!! BEAT BLUE

David said...

LOL, glad it was him and not Joe. Wish it had been Abi though.

Thanks Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great Thanksgiving.

Ed in Ohio said...

Have a Great Thanksgiving Everyone! Enjoy!!

Let's go Homiee! GO BUCKS!!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by! I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving!

oh my gosh, I just binge watched 5 hours of Survivor. Ended the 5 hrs screaming because FISHBACK is FINALLY gone!!!!!! I'm very sad and concerned for the medical issue coming next week. I think it looks like Keith. It definitely looks like a guy. I like all of the guys. Jeremy isn't my favorite....but well, we know it isn't him!! I hope the injury doesn't take anyone out of the game. I want to see how it plays out just as it is now. GO JOE!!!!

-STEPHANIE IN BALTIMORE

Nickelpeed said...

Just got to Survivor; and am so happy Fishback is gone. Jeremy is my pool pick, but it was a waste to save him last week. Little does he know, Stephen would turn on him on a dime.

I wonder who is the medical emergency next week. I'm glad I can watch it this week.

Kelly W. is one lucky person. Now she'll have 2 idols.

Nickelpeed said...

Read the comments. Jackie, I was on that first AOL message board. I've always wondered where everyone went afterward. I was happy to see your blog. We had a lot of people on that board. Do you remember the dragonlady? She'd been trying for years to get on Survivor. We also had a woman who was a San Fran 49er fan. I was very sad when AOL stopped their boards.
