Survivor: Kaoh Rong Season Premiere Blog Party and Pool


Survivor fans ready? The new season makes its premiere tonight! 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.

Before the show gets going, that Lovable Lifeguard Laurie has made the random picks for the pool. I realize a few people asked too late. Lifeguard Laurie has been kind enough to offer to put the three latecomers and first booters into the pool after tonight's boot.

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

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

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

Let's all have a great season!

All three tribes scramble to snag supplies before abandoning ship. Jeff promises us the most grueling season ever. So far, as we're still going through the start-up welcome stuff, Debbie seems quite bizarre and annoying to me. Brawn all seem to fit in well together, Brains not as much. The Beauty tribe is trying to figure out Tai. He's defensive of trees, y'know.

Okay, Brawn is starting to split a bit. The guys aren't liking "Blondie" -- I think that's Alecia. I'm not good with the names yet. Darnell wants to work with Cydney. She isn't as committing, I don't think.

Over in Beauty, the chickens escape. They get two of them back while Tai impresses the girls with his gentle approach. The girls are also liking Caleb because they know he was solid to his alliance through BB.

In Brains, Debbie seems to have designs on Joe. Poor Joe. Liz and Neal don't care for her. And, unfortunately, they're deciding that Joe and Debbie are the "geriatrics." It's sad that they're already targeting due to age. If they target Debbie due to weird, that's fine by me.

In Beauty, Tai is searching for an idol and ripping up trees to do so. Yikes! The others realize what he's doing and now he's likely to get targeted. He did apologize to the trees.

Now Brains is in a segment on the heat there. Heck, are they going to even have a challenge? The show only has 20 minutes left to go! Aubry is dehydrated. Maybe we'll just have a med-evac. Maybe it's anxiety. We'll see.

Nighttime. Eek. Jennifer has a bug in her ear!

Okay, I've been informed tonight is 90 minutes. They'll have time.

Treemail. But Jennifer's ear is bleeding and the bug is still in it. Aha! The bug crawled out and she's herself once again!

And, it's time for the Immunity Challenge. Swim to a boat, one person dive down for paddles. Eventually they can solve a puzzle or test their dexterity. Reward is a massive fire-making kit. Second tribe to finish gets a flint.

Uh-oh. On the first dive for paddles, Darnell lost the dive mask and that's setting them behind from the start. Beauty is the first tribe with all the paddles. Beauty and Brains are now competing with Brawn as the first two tribes have trouble getting their boat in the cradle. They're putting on their wheels. Beauty is now in trouble.

Brains goes for the puzzle and is in the lead. Brawn chooses puzzle. Beauty is struggling to move their boat on the track. They also go for puzzle.

Brains Tribe wins Immunity and Reward! Beauty wins the second place! Brawn will go to Tribal Council tonight.

It looks like they're going to target Darnell. Now, Alecia might have blown it by hinting she might have an idol. Stupid girl. Cydney also wants to keep Darnell because she knows he's in her corner.

Tribal Council time. Darnell admits losing the goggles, but claims he will bring it. Alecia thinks she's a mental giant. Oh my. Darnell goes to tears. His heartbreak tale might save his butt.

The tally:
Alecia, Darnell, Alecia, Darnell, Alecia, Darnell.
It's a tie.

They have to revote -- Alecia and Darnell can't vote and the others can only vote for them.

Darnell, Darnell, Darnell. He's the one out tonight.

The pool is cleaned and heated and you might notice some new chairs and lounges for your comfort. The snack table is ready for your goodies. I added some fresh oranges, lemons, and avocados we picked up on a road trip to central California earlier this week. Enjoy!

^5 SueGee :)))

Anonymous said...

~~~SPLAAAAAAAASSSSHHHH~~~~ Here we go!

I brought Pink Moscato.

I have seen that doctor before. I can't place where, but I think he was on something else.

Hi Jackie, Laurie, Joe, Monty and SueGee!!! And every one else!!!!

Well, that personal trainer is NOT good looking!

Penny

Still can't get in to my account!

Petals said...

I just saw my guy - Silver Fox Joe!

I brought 5 bottles of chilled Perrier Jouet - special for this night.

Caleb. Grrr.

SueGee said...

Hi Petals, Joe, Jackie & Vincent (and anyone else I miss coming in)

anonymouse said...

Mouse in the house! Hello everyone.

monty924 said...

Hey Penny and Petals!! Great to be back at the pool.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and crew mates.

anonymouse said...

And tg hanks Jackie and Laurie for the poll add.

Petals said...

Monty!! Laurie!! Jackie! Becky !! Mouse!! SueG ! ! SexyBFJoe inNY!!!!
Hello my friends. YAY! I'm so excited. I heard an awesome 80s song just minutes ago and it got me revved-up!

monty924 said...

Hi Mouse and Becky. Sorry if I missed anyone.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Petals, how are you doing?

Hi Beckie, have you been doing well?

Ed in Ohio said...

Hello Everyone!

Hey Home Gal!

Looks like I'm the 'lucky' one who got stuck with Beast Mode Cowboy....the 'Metrosexual Beauty'....I'll be jumping ship!

monty924 said...

Debbie is already annoying

Petals said...

Yeah - the Obama guy has me skeeved. And I'll never mention that again. *ahem*

anonymouse said...

I hate that girl already

SueGee said...

So sorry Ed....

Nickelpeed said...

Finally got my account to work!!!

I hear this is a brutal Survivor!

monty924 said...

Homie... we're on the same tribe. I wouldn't have minded getting BMC just for the laughs.

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks OK Sue Gee, I can just self evict and enjoy the show!

SueGee said...

We have two "local" guys in the group this year and the local CBS channel has been featuring them in commercials. Not too impressed LOL

Petals said...

agree, Monty. Like Jeff Probst said, Debbie is like Coach. Ick, shut UP, Debbie! Did she invent the color blue?? @@


I have to pick a crush every season, so Neal is my crush. Hope he earns it, LOL

anonymouse said...

OK, I know I'm I guy so I don't get it (like women could never understand why Angelina Jolie is hotter than Jennifer Aniston) but is Caleb a beauty? I always thought he was funny looking

Petals said...

ED !! Hey!

Oh no, you have Douchemode Cowboy? Sorry. Don't worry - he probably won't last long. LOL

SueGee said...

I heard BMC was disappointed he was not on the brawn team LOL

monty924 said...

There's the Caleb we all remember, LOL

Petals said...

and PS - Nick on "beauty" is not that good=looking. He is meh. He is...my accountant. Whatev.

Nickelpeed said...

Which one is Neal, Petals?

Nickelpeed said...

Wow the little guy is resilient. He may do well.

Petals said...

Hey Penny ! ! !


Shut UP, Douchemode!

Paula Bell said...

Ahhhhhhh the warmth of a pool...Can I stay in until summertime?

Becky said...

Yes, thank you Jackie and Laurie. Okay, any nicknames for the players yet.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree with you, Petals, I do not think Nick is good looking.

Jackie said...

Anonymouse - I always think Charlie Sheen when I look at Caleb. I'm not enamored. I'm also not thinking the one the girls think is a model is all that great looking.

anonymouse said...

CBS should let fans decide which survivors to put on Big Brother and vice versa. It could be epic.

Petals said...

Becky - Caleb has already earned the "Douchemode Cowboy" moniker. But that is kinda long to type. How about DC? LOL!!!Or Jerkweed? Or Blustering Idiot? hahahaha

Becky said...

Penny, I started to call him Monkey Man, meaning it as a compliment. He is GOOD. I think he is the first one since Ozzie who could go up a tree that quick.

Becky said...

I like DC!

SueGee said...

Do we have a drinking word yet?? Maybe something like "final 3" or alliance?

monty924 said...

I didn't catch it. Is Neal the former NBA player? I like him for some reason. Our girl isn't saying much tonight, SueGee. COuld be a good sign.

Mouse, I've never thought Caleb was a beauty but it's funny he didn't get put on the Brawn or the Brains tribe.

anonymouse said...

I have a couple nicknames for Debbie, but they aren't exactly printable.

SueGee said...

Are you talking the little guy with the glasses? He is one of the locals that has been all over TV here

Petals said...

Jackie - I had a dream about Charlie Sheen last night - we were in a hotel room in KC, room 412, and we were doing cocaine. There were little tiny ziplocks everywhere, and the one in my pocket was...
It doesn't matter. It was a cool dream, tho.

Petals said...

LOL Mouse

Petals said...

Drinking word? Hmmm... Alliance is good, I think.

Ed in Ohio said...

Beast Mode DC thinks he qualifies for all three tribes....after all he has the Beauty, the Brains, AND the Brawn!!

NOT!

PS Those young ladies better look out!

monty924 said...

Could have done without that image.

Petals said...

Ed - LOL, you're right!

Becky said...

The ER doctor does look like Obama. The postal worker did not impress me with the dump.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Petals!

Petals said...

I do like that Jenny chick on the red team. She seems cool.

Petals said...

{{{{Ed}}}}

monty924 said...

Oh yeah, I forgot she was a professional poker player. Didn't work out so well in BB.

Glenn said...

Jackie,
I had computer problems. I just got back online. Is there anyway I can be added to the pool as a late comer.

Thanks Glenn

Ed in Ohio said...

The girl in the BU hat looks awful young!

monty924 said...

Way to go BMC... made fire for the tribe!!

Nickelpeed said...

David said...

Hello everyone. Jumping in late (For east coast time that is) Show not on for another half hour here. =)

Joe in NY said...

OK, how the hell is Debbie on the brains tribe?

Nickelpeed said...

Ooops, I meant to say, Caleb was handy for once.

Petals said...

Hey David!

Pinky said...

Getting into the pool a little late but I'm here!! So happy that survivor is back!

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, I have seen that doctor on something else; and it's driving me nuts as to what!!!

monty924 said...

Hey David

Petals said...

Hi Pinky, Hi Glenn!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi David....My TAR pool partner

Petals said...

Leave Joe alone!

David said...

LOL, from what I can tell from the comments so far, the designations of the tribes don't match who is actually on them. Should be interesting to see.

Pinky said...

Tai pulling up trees. So much for respecting nature!

Joe in NY said...

There really are some odd placements here.

Nickelpeed said...

Who would have ever thought that it would be the Beauty tribe who would work well together.

Dang, Tai is smart. However, for a tree loving guy, he's tearing up trees petty badly. LOL

Petals said...

Is that Nick dude totally pigeon-toed?

David said...

We are going to win TAR Ed, just because it is Us two. =)

Jackie said...

At least he apologized to the trees.

monty924 said...

^5 Pinky. I just said that myself. :))

Ed in Ohio said...

You got it David!

Petals said...

I love Tai. Go for it, man!

Jackie said...

Glenn -- Laurie has agreed to add a few when she does the first boot re-assignments. I'll let her know.

Becky said...

Penny, you have seen the doctor in the oval office! LOL

Petals said...

*Passing around champagne flutes, to celebrate all of being together*

SueGee said...

Maybe we need to come up with some better, ie: more descriptive tribe names. Nerd tribe, Average looking tribe, Couch sitters, You really annoy me tribe...

Petals said...

Nick is a Dick

SueGee said...

And for those of you stuck in winter - I propose a toast to the first day of Spring Training!!

Petals said...

LOL SueG - I agree. They are all so random - none are beautiful, brawny or brainy. Big slip for CBS, but whaev.

Ed in Ohio said...

Here here....Sue Gee!!

Petals said...

*toast^

Anonymous said...

oh dear god. Not Caleb. Yippee! ;) Stephanie in Baltimore

Petals said...

shut up Aubrey. Go home and invent a new gluten-free bagel

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Nick is a dick. That's one way to say it. LOL

Plus, sorry Petals, I do not think Neal is hot. LOL

SueGee said...

90 minute show tonight Jackie

monty924 said...

Brains actually went far last time with Kass, Spencer and Tash

Ed in Ohio said...

Stephanie, I feel your pain.....I got Caleb too!

Petals said...

I have t'say - the photography on Survivor is incredible. Best job ever! (except for Roger Federer's personal assistant)

anonymouse said...

How about an all villains Survivor with tribe names like douchebags backstabbers and narcissists

Jackie said...

How did I miss that, Sue?

Petals said...

Penny - You're right, Neal isn't hot. But I always have to
crush on someone. I kinda girl-crush on Jennifer from red tribe.
Neal is kinda Jewishy-looking, which I dig. So he gets my crush, LOL

monty924 said...

Already a lot of signs to how rough this season was but it happening the first show is odd for Survivor.

Petals said...

Anonymouse @ 8:44 - I agree! All villians would be fun to watch!

SueGee said...

I think you have been busy Jackie. You need some time in the hot tub with a nice hot toddy.

SueGee said...

Good one mouse

Anonymous said...

Jackie show is an hour & half tonight

Anonymouse said...

Don't know how I got signed out.

David said...

LOL, Just got the e-mail from CBS about Survivor premiere tonight. They must have them on time delay for time zones.

Toast to spring training =)

monty924 said...

YUCK

SueGee said...

Bug in my ear? Now there is a nightmare! Star Trek anyone?

Nickelpeed said...

That's disgusting. Thank God it's out. I could not handle that. Ewwww.

Petals said...

blech. Need a champs refill! Anyone else? *Passing the bottle*

monty924 said...

David, I'm ready for spring training too... spring anything! CHEERS

SueGee said...

Me Petals!! I'll pass the fresh OJ back your way

Petals said...

Great challenge!

Petals said...

Thanks Sue G

Glenn said...

Hi Petals. Hi everyone.

GLenn

Petals said...

Monty & David - I have one thing to say.


* * * * * * ROLLLLL TIIIIIDE * * * * * *

David said...

LOL, she should have kept the bug for a pet.

monty924 said...

Go Beauty Tribe

Petals said...

Hi Glenn! Have some bubbly - *passing a glass to Glenn*

monty924 said...

Petals, LOL. Ed and I are the Buckeye nuts

Petals said...

OOps, sorry David. Ed - ROOOLLLL TIIIIDE baby!

David said...

We have had spring-time weather here for the last 10 days. I got out on a tractor and graded the ruts out of our road since all the snow has melted.

Ed in Ohio said...

Beast Mode DC should be able to push that boat by himself!

monty924 said...

Dang, the Beauty tribe has blown their lead @@

Ed in Ohio said...

Ok Petals, Congrats on Bama...but don't forget we GOT you all last year!

Petals said...

Not if it musses up his hair, Ed LOL

monty924 said...

We've had snow and ice for the past couple of days, David. Spring weather on the way though with temps in the 50's and 60's by weekend.

Ed in Ohio said...

Tell her Monty...."Buckeye Nuts"!!!!

monty924 said...

Brains win first immunity

Petals said...

Joe is safe, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Petals said...

Elephant eat nuts for breakfast,LOL

monty924 said...

YES!! Whew!

Pinky said...

Have a feeling blondie is going home

Becky said...

I am glad Beauty won it because of their compassion for the girl with the bug in her ear. SHE put the puzzle together. WTG!

Becky said...

Monty, wish I could send you some of our weather. I won't tell you what it is -- you would vote me out of the tribe!

monty924 said...

Becky, I would take it. Two days in the house because I couldn't get down the hill, or better yet get back up it if I did manage to get down it, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I am just surprised Brawn didn't do better with that huge basketball player on their team.

Petals said...

postal working going home?

Petals said...

Penny, me too. Just goes to show that the tribes are so random

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know, Darnell should not go, it should be the real estate agent. She doesn't do much.

monty924 said...

I say the blonde

Becky said...

Penny, the first guy in lost the goggles. The did a great come back from being so far behind.

Petals said...

chocolate or vanilla - who will survive?

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, you are so funny. I'm hoping vanilla.

Becky said...

Pick Blondie!

monty924 said...

Cydney's facial expressions need to stay around a long, long time :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

I liked it better when the tribal discussions weren't so obvious :((

Nickelpeed said...

The female brunette looks like Susan Sarandon (sp?)

Petals said...

I feel like it will be vanilla that leaves, only because of the racial tension in the country right now.

David said...

LOL Becky. Wanting your pool pick out first so you can get a re-draw. =)

Nickelpeed said...

I think Alicia will go home.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know about that, Petals. I just think he does more. She does nothing.

SueGee said...

Be careful what you wish for Becky. Your re-pick could be a whole lot worse LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Flip a Coin!!!!!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Shoot guys. Come on. She does absolutely nothing. Give him a second chance.

Hopefully, the two guys will change their minds.

SueGee said...

What's the tie-breaker?

monty924 said...

If it were me, I would have voted out Allicia. Darnell did lose the goggles, but that was just a mistake. They made up all that time and then she blew it on the puzzle and she doesn't do much around camp that we've seen.

Becky said...

I forgot she was my pool person. ROFWMPLOL Duh! I just don't want DMC

Nickelpeed said...

The big guy needs a change of heart.

Petals said...

ok, ok. Sorry Jackie.

Ed in Ohio said...

Visually I'd keep Alicia...Strategically I'd keep Darnell

monty924 said...

I think that was a mistake.

Nickelpeed said...

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Pinky said...

Too bad. He didn't deserve to get voted off.

Becky said...

She better get up off haunches and get busy.

Becky said...

Thank you, Jackie for hosting. See you Friday night.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I'll see you all next week. I will not be at the TAR blog Friday night, I have to work.

Have a good rest of the week!!!

Thank you Jackie; give Vincent a scratch on the head.

Jackie said...

I think they'd have been better off keeping Darnell. Alecia did practically nothing around the camp.

David said...

Thanks Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great week and hope to see you Friday for TAR.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree, Pinky, Darnell deserved to stay. Very bad move, IMO

SueGee said...

I hope to make it next week, but I will be in Iowa and very busy (trying not to freeze for one thing)

Keep my floatie reserved!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Petals said...

Awesome premiere! Thank you Jackie! LOVE LOVE you guys!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by! And, remember ... the latecomer and first boot (poor Darnell) people will be listed in a pool update!

monty924 said...

I think I'm the only one here who wouldn't have minded getting Caleb, LOL. Like I said, it would be good for laughs.

Ed in Ohio said...

G'Nite All!

Thanks Jackie & Laurie (even though you gave me Caleb)

Monty make sure to send some of that 50's & 60's weather up north this weekend!

monty924 said...

See what I mean, LOL?? Caleb is a hoot.

Thanks Jackie. Great seeing everyone again!! Here's to a great season of Survivor

monty924 said...

Will do Ed, LOL

Anonymous said...

I could have lasted an hour with that bug in my ear before I would have been like "I'M DONE!!!! MEDIC!!!!"

Anonymous said...

Poor Darnell. The nitwit do nothing Alecia lives to see another day. SHE TRIED TO WRITE WITH THE CAP ON THE MARKER. They should have kept Darnell. Oh Well. Ed and I live to see another day as well with our Caleb! -Stephanie in Baltimore

Go Ducks! quack quack!
