Survivor: Kaoh Rong Blog Party - February 24


Survivor fans ready? As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings -- refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Please join us there. We like snacks.

Lifeguard Laurie was kind enough to offer to add the latecomers who posted last week to the blog pool, as well as reassign those who unfortunately were Darnell's pool peeps as he was the first boot.

Here are the revised match-ups:
Chan Loh - Brains
Elizabeth Markham - Donna in FL, Terry is a Texan
Peter Baggenstos - Jackie, Tammy
Neal Gottlieb - Merrilee, JoyzJenn
Debbie Wanner - meb, Rbennie
Aubry Braco - Jennasmom, Glenn
Joseph Del Campo - Grandi, Petals

Gondol - Beauty
Tai Trang - Margo, anonymouse
Nick Maiorano - Laurie, ML
Anna Khait - monty924 , SueGee from the Left Coast
Michele Fitzgerals - Brian TCC, Kelsey NY
Julia Sokolowski - Indiana Jane, Nickelpeed
Caleb Reynolds - Ed in Ohio, Stephanie in Baltimore

To Tang - Brawn
Kyle Jason - Nana in the NW, Sharon N.
Jennifer Lanzetti - David, Paula Bell
Alecia Holen - Becky, Donna NY
Scot Pollard - Delee, Pinky
Cydney Gillon - Leo Lionharted, PDX Granny

Torch has been snuffed:
Darnell Hamiltonn - free play!

Let's get this party started! If I vanish during the show, we're having some severe thunderstorms here and we've just been put under a tornado watch.

Recap, recap. 

Alecia, although saved last week, is very suspicious of her tribe mates. She's next on their list to go. Gah, Alecia calls an ember an "embryo." Oh, duh!

Over on Beauty, Tai is still determined to find a hidden idol without a clue. And he's found a clue saying the idol is buried at the base of the tree. He found that clue and it directs him to find a key to unlock the idol. He has to climb a tall tree to get at it and has to give up ... for now.

Debbie is sure the water they have to drink is safe without boiling. She's proving more and more of a nut. 

Heh. Caleb has taken a liking to Tai. Who woulda thunk it?

Brains weren't so brainy ... they wasted/spilled most of the kerosene thanks to Joe. At least he's the one they're blaming. Joe himself thinks he's at kindergarten camp because the "book" brains are all trying failed experiments rather than just working to achieve their goals.

On Brawn, while Scot and Kyle slept, Alecia worked for hours with the flint and got a fire going. Will that redeem her in their eyes? Now they can cook their chicken and boil their water. 

Immunity Challenge time! Race down river, retrieve log, carry it through obstacles, knock down targets. Reward for the first tribe is a huge fishing kit and boat. Second gets a smaller kit. Geez, Debbie is sitting up and cheerleading. I think I'm ill.

Beauty wins first place immunity and reward! Brains wins second place. Brawn once again will go to Tribal Council. 

Of course, Scot and Kyle are wanting Alecia out once again. She decided she needs to go out searching for an immunity idol. Meanwhile, Jennifer is getting tired of Kyle (Jason) and would rather keep Alecia. Jennifer and Alecia approach Cydney about an all girls alliance. If the girls stick together, it's Jason (who is actually Kyle Jason!). Now Jennifer is having second thoughts because she doesn't want to let Scot down.

Tribal Council has Jennifer spilling a few too many beans and making the guys suspicious. Uh-oh, Jennifer lies and claims the all girl alliance was Alecia's idea. Alecia denies it and claims Jennifer. Is Jennifer sinking her boat?

The tally:
Jenny, Alecia, Alecia, Jenny, Jenny.

Welp, she did it to herself! Alecia is safe and Jennifer is gone.

SueGee said...

I want a margarita Monty - Thanks!!

monty924 said...

I miss the Survivor Live show where they would talk to the castoffs the next day. :((

Nickelpeed said...

I think the Brawn tribe is going to regret voting out Darnell.

monty924 said...

One maragrita coming up... salt?

Glenn said...

Hi everyone! Thanks for including me in the pool. we are still getting alot of rain and wind from the storm
Glenn

Nickelpeed said...

I do, too, monty.

SueGee said...

Salt please!!

Nickelpeed said...

Stay safe, Glenn.

monty924 said...

Hi Penny

anonymouse said...

Mouse in House!

Hey Jackie, Sue, Monty Penny and those who follow.

monty924 said...

Sliding a margarita to SueGee. Glenn, hope it isn't too bad your way... I hate storms with wind.

SueGee said...

He found it!!

SueGee said...

No just a clue

monty924 said...

Hey Mouse

Nickelpeed said...

He is going to get himself voted off. They are making this VERY hard. Good for them. LOL.

anonymouse said...

I have Yuengs and Wings

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh, he's going to really torn up feet and legs. He's not going to be able to play in the challenge if he keeps on going. Wow.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and gang.

monty924 said...

That was just WOW

Jackie said...

We're under a Tornado Watch here and have severe thunderstorms coming through on and off. I'm hoping the power hangs in. I want to watch 'Criminal Minds' and 'American Crime' after this!

Nickelpeed said...

I'll have a margarita, too, monty. Lots of salt. LOL Thank you

Becky said...

How is your weather? Nasty stuff up North and the midwest.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, Jackie. Stay safe. Hope you do not lose power, either. Love both of those shows!!!

monty924 said...

Hey Becky... sliding a margarita over to Penny

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Everybody!

Stay safe from the storms East Coast.



anonymouse said...

Line that just went through Lancaster County was intense. I've never seen that much lightning in February.

SueGee said...

Brought my son home from the hospital this afternoon and it was flurrying. Cold for this California girl LOL

Nickelpeed said...

That was funny. Mustn't know a lot of about fires to stand so close.

I just do not like Debbie. UGH

Nickelpeed said...

Is your son okay, SueGee?

monty924 said...

Yes, stay safe Jackie. Just getting colder and windy here tonight.

Hi homie

anonymouse said...

I would strangle her

Nickelpeed said...

Debbie...O_o OMGosh!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

His charm, his personality?????

Becky said...

Debby will go early. She is someone who could go very old very fast.

SueGee said...

I've known a few Debbies in my life... And then there is the Cowboy

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, the cowboy. LOLOLOLOL

Hey Becky....How are you doing?

SueGee said...

Penny - he had a hip replaced on Monday. Sure is great how good he is doing.

monty924 said...

The oddest bromance ever

Nickelpeed said...

Tell him to do everything the doctor and physical therapists tell him. It has to be painful. I feel for him.

Ed in Ohio said...

Beast Mode & Tai????? Unlikely duo!

Becky said...

Monty, send one of those my way.

monty924 said...

Sliding a margarita to Becky.

LOL @ Ed. That's what I think.

SueGee said...

Better be making them by the pitcher Monty LOL

David said...

Hello Everyone. =)

Stay safe all of you in the storms path.

Nickelpeed said...

I have a bottle of Moscato, but the Margaritas sound so much better. Yum, so good.

Nickelpeed said...

He's not a nice guy, is he???

Becky said...

I have been headache free for over a week. I feel brnd new. Oh, I brought tachos with and without jalapenos.

monty924 said...

Lol, yes SueGee. Just made two pitchers. :))

Hey David

anonymouse said...

I would take Joe and Debbie to the end, if I didn't strangle them in their sleep.

Ed in Ohio said...

On 'Margarita Day' the the Mexican Restaurant in our neighborhood was packed!

In my former company my partners' mother would make us a margarita every Friday @ 5PM...tradition!

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, did doctors put you on medicine to help you?

Yeah, I guess I would take Joe and Debbie to the end, but I'd probably strangle them before then.

Poor Brawn.

YIKES! Did you see the teeth on those Monkeys?

Yay, the blonde made fire!!!!

Becky said...

Not real impressed with the Brawn bunch. How many years has Survivor been on? It is just like going on AR and not being able to drive a standard shift. If you are going on Survivor, learn to make fire from scratch, Idiot!

Pinky said...

I brought quesadillas to go with the margaritas.

Ed in Ohio said...

I'm surprised 'Cupids Arrow' hasn't struck Beast Mode yet.....C'mon Cowboy don't disappoint!

Nickelpeed said...

Are they taking longer to go to the challenges this year, or is it my imagination?

Pinky said...

Agreed Becky. If I were going on survivor, if practice making fire for weeks.

monty924 said...

Hey Pinky. Great idea... yummy

SueGee said...

Some people apply for Survivor, others are recruited. I think that explains why some seem so very unprepared

Nickelpeed said...

I wonder why they took away the separate reward challenge?

SueGee said...

Thanks Pinky!

Ed in Ohio said...

Cowboy could carry that log by himself!!

Nickelpeed said...

Quesadillas sound so good, Pinky!!

monty924 said...

Come on Beauty

David said...

I think they are Penny. They also dropped the reward as a separate challenge it seems forever except for special ones. Family, auction, etc.

monty924 said...

They have a habit of giving away the advantage... ugh

monty924 said...

YES!!!

Pinky said...

Beast Mode is a beast in this challenge.

Nickelpeed said...

That's what I mean, David, they are having the reward challenge in with the immunity challenge. It gives them more time to spend on the characters. I just miss the separate challenge, but we do get more time getting to know the people.

Ed in Ohio said...

Caleb for the win! BEAST MODE!!

monty924 said...

Brawn back to tribal. Should have kept Darnell

Nickelpeed said...

Second time the Brawn lost. They just do not mesh together.

Cowboy could be brawn also. He's so different than he was on BB

monty924 said...

The girls will get rid of one of the guys and it's their own fault

Ed in Ohio said...

Same tribe again!

SueGee said...

I think the Cowboy gets along better with these folks.

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, I agree, Monty. Should have kept Darnell. They'll be paying for that mistake for awhile.

David said...

Ut oh, Alecia may not survive this time. Or my pool pick could be out. Can't tell which way they are leaning.

Becky said...

My family told me they were caused by stress. My husband had another cancer scale When he had the first bout he knew he would lose his voice box. He did not want to do it. Momma was on hospice and I guilted him into doing it. This time I told him that he would decide. It took six weeks of tests but when they said they thought it was benign I let my guard down and was hit with a crippling headache that lasted six weeks. After three weeks I went to a chiorpractor. Then I went to my family doctor. He told me to stick with the chiorpractor and that it would take several weeks.

Jackie, I apologize that this was so long and off topic,

As for the brawn tribe, I am not impressed. Oh, I said that before. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know if I'd get rid of one of the guys on Brawn; however, they're doing nothing for the team right now. The two guys look really strong, but they just do not come through. Maybe it is time to get rid of one of them.

Jackie said...

I remember that Caleb initially was trying to get on Survivor and didn't make it. They offered him BB instead. It helps that Amber isn't there either. I keep expecting to see him wear bunny slippers.

SueGee said...

Debbie is a character...

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty I like when I post right after you. It's like my avatar is cheering your avatar!

monty924 said...

See what I mean. I'd say he's gone tonight.

monty924 said...

Lol Ed. ^5 on that :))))

Ed in Ohio said...

HI 5!!!

Nickelpeed said...

I am so sorry, Becky. I should have been contacting you to see how you were doing. I'm just glad you have some relief. Stress headaches are horrible. My stress pain is usually in my shoulders and neck. I know it's painful for you. Just know I'm here if you need me.

I am so hoping these girls get together and get rid of one of them.

I'm hoping blondie finds the idol or the girls stick together and get out one of the guys. However, I'll believe it when I see it.

monty924 said...

Well, there goes that notion.

Ed in Ohio said...

Looks like Jenny holds the key

Pinky said...

Jenny talks way too much.

monty924 said...

Ed, it looks like it could be Jenny tonight. At least now it does.

Ed in Ohio said...

Lotta' facial expressions

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, see, they are not going to flip it. What's going to happen when it gets down to just the 4? Are they going to mix up the teams? The girls need to take control.

Dang you, Jeff! Jenny....how stupid are you!!! They could get her now. Geesh. Absolutely stupid.

monty924 said...

Up to this point??? It was one vote.

anonymouse said...

Maybe Jenny goes now. She better take a shot at him now.

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow they're blowin' up!

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty I'm not tryin' to follow you on purpose now... it's just happening!

Nickelpeed said...

They talk about the blonde being dumb, but Jenny sure isn't any better. Geesh! Dumbest move ever! I bet Jenny is voted out. DARN YOU JEFF!!! Why does he do that????!!!

SueGee said...

They all talk to much

David said...

Dang, my pool pick just doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut. Could be sinking her own boat.

monty924 said...

Jenny or Alecia????

SueGee said...

That is what Jeff is best at! Why they pay him the big bucks LOL

Nickelpeed said...

She wouldn't have had to beg for a second chance if she hadn't taken Jeff's bait. Absolutely dumb.

monty924 said...

Sorry David. She did it to herself. ugh

SueGee said...

dang

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, lesson to learn....DO NOT TALK TOO MUCH. Bad choice, though. It's not going to get better for them.

Ed in Ohio said...

Loose lips................

monty924 said...

Craziness. Jackie and everyone, have a great rest of the week. Not sure if I will make it to the TAR party on Friday or not.

Have a good one!!

Pinky said...

Good night everybody!

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting us. Very much appreciated. Will finally get to participate Friday night TAR. See everyone here next Wednesday!!!

SueGee, prayers to your son for a fast recovery.

Becky, hope your headaches stay away, thinking of you.

Vincent!!! You are great for us....you purr away!!!

David said...

Dang, well I wasn't impressed with her anyway. Free Agent now to root for who I want. =)

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great week. And those in the path of the storm, stay safe.

Ed in Ohio said...

G'night All!

SueGee said...

no regrets - no brains either!!

See you all Friday if I make it!!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Becky said...

She did brig it on herself. Wasn't Jenny the one who came up with the idea? And then lied and blamed it on Alicia.

Amd was Alicia the one who started the fire?

Thank you for hosting. Jackie and Vincent. Stay safe and warm. See you at A-R.

Nickelpeed said...

You are so right, Becky. She walked right in to it.
