Let's get this party started!

We're starting off this week with Jeff telling us about the brutally hot weather at Kaoh Rong. Then we get a brief recap of each tribe's times so far. Fifteen are left. Who will be voted out tonight? 

On Brains, Debbie thinks she should be called The Mastermind. Peter is still shocked. He thinks his tribe is no longer strong. Oh, well. 

My gosh ... it's right to the Immunity Challenge! Racing through obstacles, digging under walls, digging for bags of balls, rolling the balls into holes on a platform. Reward is a huge array of spices, second place gets salt and pepper.

They're all digging for the bags of balls. The camera goes to slow motion and the sun. All are exhausted. Brains finally got the last bag of balls first. Brains win it while the other two tribes are still digging for bags. Beauty now has their three bags.

Debbie (the Mastermind) thinks she has heat stroke and the medics are called in.

Brawn finally have their bags and the game is on.  Beauty wins second place and Brawn will go to Tribal once again. 

Oh. And, Debbie lived. 

Now Caleb has passed out. Cydney is about to be next. The show's entire crew get called in to help the fallen. Oh, noes! Has Caleb died?!?! (We know he hasn't, but it's onto commercial.)

They're giving him fluids, but Jeff just called for the chopper. It's an evacuation! Caleb might be out of the game. Yep, Caleb is a goner as far as the show goes. Rats. I liked him here so much more than on BB. Tai is devastated as is the rest of his tribe. He's been the strongest on it.

On Brawn it's a kerfuffle between Alecia and Scot.  

No Tribal and it's onto another Immunity Challenge. Race into jungle, climb up ladder, retrieve puzzle pieces. Two others dive for puzzle pieces. 

Brains wins first place! Beauty gets second place and Brawn will go to Tribal. 

Scot tells Jeff that Alecia has a zero chance of staying. Jason and Scot are willing to have Tribal right there, but Alecia balks. So, it's now onto the real Tribal Council. It sounds like a clear-cut decision to send her home.

The tally:
Alecia, Scot, Alecia, Alecia.

No surprises there. But now Brawn is down to three. Yikes.

Next week, it's Drop Your Buffs time. Whether it's the merge or a reshuffling, I don't know. But Brawn can't continue to go on with only three tribe members.

Hello everyone!!!
I have chocolate cream pie and lime jello (long story)

So tonight's a game-changer...can't wait to see what happens. I hope Peter gets beaten-down somehow. He needs an attitude check!

SueGee said...

Hi to all!! Can't stay tonight but wanted to stop buy and say hello! Gonna grab a lemon square and disappear

SueGee (still in Iowa and missing the leftcoast)

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie, mouse, Becky, Joe and Ed

monty924 said...

And Petals and SueGee

Jackie said...

Hey guys! Right into Immunity this week!

Anonymouse said...

Hey Petals, Monty and SueGee

Shannon said...

Howdy!

Petals said...

My laptop went to the big IT store in the sky; I'm limping on my tablet, so forgive me if I don't personally say HEY to all my buddies.

SueGee said...

Now I need to grab some chocolate cream pie!! I got them to change the channel so maybe I get to stay a while...


SueGee

Petals said...

I just ordered 2 LG pizzas, one veggie, one supreme.

Ed in Ohio said...

Dips on the Supreme Petals!

Petals said...

@@ Peter.

Ed in Ohio said...

^DIBS!

Anonymouse said...

Caleb is that whole tribe.

monty924 said...

This is scary

Joe in NY said...

Are they not allowed water in the challenges? Seems a little inhumane.

Becky said...

This Survivor has been brutal.

Ed in Ohio said...

Heat Exhaustion?! Heat Stroke??

Petals said...

The silver fox, Joe?, is totally fine. He is awesome!

monty924 said...

I'm in and out too. Multi-tasking with Survivor and laundry. :((

Becky said...

I agree, Joe.

Petals said...

Ed, I'll "Din" you at least half... ;)

Petals said...

"dib" rather

Petals said...

Slicing pie for SueG

YUM, Lemoncello !

monty924 said...

Whew!!

Ed in Ohio said...

LOL Petals we're havin' a hard time spelling "DIB" :))

Anonymouse said...

I repeat, Caleb is that whole tribe.

Petals said...

Lol. Damned tablet

Anonymouse said...

That would be devastating if they lose him

monty924 said...

Now Caleb down

Ed in Ohio said...

Not Cowboy!! He's Beast Mode

monty924 said...

Man, three of them in one challenge

Petals said...

Yeeeeeps :(

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow they're all droppin'

Becky said...

Darn, they are dropping like flies.

Joe in NY said...

how the hell hot is it?
Seems like they've had longer, more grueling challenges in the past without everyone going out

Petals said...

He hyperventilated..

Ed in Ohio said...

My Cowboy might be down for the count!

Anonymouse said...

Sand reflects the sun, and digging in it is exhausting

Becky said...

I'll give Caleb points for being a go-getter for his tribe. Much more likeable than on Big Brother.

monty924 said...

my BIL in Florida ended up selling his landscape business because he was having so many heat strokes and he took every precaution. Serious stuff

Petals said...

And on that note... 🍕 PIZZA'S HERE!

monty924 said...

I'll take a slice of supreme... just have to pick off the green peppers :))

Marybeth said...

I agree, he is way more likable on this show than Big Brother. This was a rough challenge!

Becky said...

I'll take a slice of supreme, Petals. I didn't mention, but I brought a keg of beer.

SueGee said...

Me too Monte - Green peppers make me burp!

Petals said...

Lol Monty...

Becky said...

My daddy had a heat stroke one summer. Nasty stuff.

Ed in Ohio said...

I love Green Peppers!

monty924 said...

Ah, feel bad for Caleb. And for Tai too.

Becky said...

They will bring him back another time.

Petals said...

Yup. Bye Caleb! Next time don't reason in an air-conditioned gym.

Ed in Ohio said...

Looks like I'm out of the pool (caleb), and not by Tribal vote but by heat

monty924 said...

You can tell the Beauty tribe all got along well

Petals said...

Giving Ed all the green peppers....

Joe in NY said...

That's really heartbreaking.

Marybeth said...

Just goes to show you how being locked up with people for three months can really change your behavior. Look how different he was on this show. Hope they give him another shot.

monty924 said...

True that, Marybeth

SueGee said...

I hope they gave all the tribes some water when they left

Becky said...

I agree. He was likeable this time around.

Petals said...

So maybe Caleb wins FanFave? Geeminy... CBS never put an update about an injured/removed Survivor. He's not dead, people.

Ed in Ohio said...

Caleb was probably better behaved this time around because..............there was no Amber!

Petals said...

Caleb found love on the heels of his BB adventure. She may have softened him, she's a single mother, etc...

Petals said...

Hey! Who left all the crusts...?

Petals said...

Brawn team SUCKS! They are all jerks!

monty924 said...

They kept her!!

SueGee said...

Leftovers here tonight....ugh

Ed in Ohio said...

Tatoo Paradise!

monty924 said...

Whenever someone says that... it never happens

Petals said...

Is it me? Or have these meatheads treated Alicia like dog spit from day one?

monty924 said...

Definitely, Ed.

Anonymouse said...

Sorry Petals that's me

Anonymouse said...

The crusts, not meathead

monty924 said...

Petals, they had their chance to get rid of her and didn't.

Anonymouse said...

Thought that was just reward

Petals said...

Mouse, LOL

SueGee said...

Why would someone wear all dark clothing in that weather??? FBI smarty??

Petals said...

I've been bullied...been the chick everyone hated for no real reason. I feel bad for Alicia

Petals said...

Whoever is the bearded, tattooed brawn guy? What a wimp!

Ed in Ohio said...

Maybe with that hot weather all of the challenges could have been in the water

Anonymouse said...

They really miss Caleb

monty924 said...

Yay, Beauty tribe

Anonymouse said...

But Braun is just helpless

Becky said...

Bye, bye, Alicia.

Joe in NY said...

I really don't understand the complete hatred of Alecia. I mean, she's a little annoying, but there doesn't seem to be any reason she needs to be at the bottom like that.

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty, this 'Buckeye' is out of the Beauty tribe tonight, it's up to you now (& Anna)

monty924 said...

Good for her. Never just outright quit

Anonymouse said...

You know there's not a lot of suspect several when they don't show back at camp and tribal starts at 8:51

monty924 said...

Lol, Ed. I'll try to bring home the win :)))

SueGee said...

Monty and I have Anna - who so far has been invisible

Anonymouse said...

Suspense

Petals said...

That basketball neanderthal and the tattoo oompa loompa are worthless POSs. They are jokes.

Joe in NY said...

It's really odd how openly hateful they are towards her, including Sydney

Petals said...

Sue - who is Anna? Lol

monty924 said...

Seven minutes left.... hmmmm

Ed in Ohio said...

No surprise there!!!

monty924 said...

Anna is our pool pick. The poker player on the Beauty tribe

Anonymouse said...

Exactly

Becky said...

I wonder if they will go to two teams next week? Jackie, thank you for hosting. See you Friday.

monty924 said...

They haven't been to tribal and they haven't shown her a lot. Hoping that's a good thing.

SueGee said...

Was this the first week they separated the challenges?

Anonymouse said...

Thanks Jackie! Have a great week everyone.

Petals said...

Jeff, in an open mike forum, mentioned that there was a terrible car if bullying like he's never seen...Guess this is it. He was ashamed of it. Her teammates should be ashamed, too.

Anonymouse said...

I hope not. Want the brawns to turn on each other.

Ed in Ohio said...

G'Nite! Enjoyed the Limoncello, Pizza, & Company!! Good Luck Monty & Sue Gee!

Thanks Jackie!

Nickelpeed said...

Just checking in. Still working. I'm so sad Caleb is gone. He was pretty bearable for this, unlike BB. Bummer.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. Good show and great company. Everyone have a great week.

Petals said...

Goodnight my friends :)
Always good to see you all.
XOXOXO

SueGee said...

NIGHT NIGHT

Jackie said...

Sue - I think there was no Reward with the second Immunity Challenge because they had no TC.

Thanks for coming everyone!

Brent McKee said...

Scott talks a good deal about being a team player, being in the NBA, and winning a championship. Here's the facts. In the 2007 season he signed with the Celtics. I think it was the fifth or sixth team of his career. He saw limited minutes during the regular season. He did not play at all during the NBA playoffs. In other words he did not contribute to his team' success and was nothing more than a cheerleader. He has a lot of gall complaining about what Alicia contributed.

Sharon N said...

Well, that was a shocker episode!
Never thought Caleb would go out so fast, and especially like that!
Too bad... unlike with BB, I liked him in Survivor.

Nickelpeed said...

I am so sad that Caleb went out like this. He was bearable and very likable in Survivor. My gosh, they are lucky they didn't lose any of them. Cyndie looked horrible. I wish Caleb could have come out of this. Very sad.

Anonymous said...

Just catching up now (!) So sad to see Caleb go! He's matured so much since BB and now seemed to be a valuable team player. I hope he gets a chance to come back next season. One thing I noticed during the multi-emergency is that the ER Doc was no where to be seen, unless I just missed him. I would have thought he would have jumped in to help since there were so many in need, but I didn't even see him in the background until everything was over. Hmmm. Next week should be interesting.

Anonymous said...

Well, I'm glad I avoided looking at this site last night. I binge watched 3 episodes. I cried pretty significantly when Caleb was taken out. Not bc he was my pool pick. I didn't like him much on BB, but I was proud he was my pool pick after watching a couple of episodes. I looked up a few articles written about him and his being pulled from the game. He was in hospital for 6 days. They said if he didn't have so much muscle he would be dead.

And what P*SSED me off more than ANYTHING was they killed themselves for COFFEE! Why did they fight so hard and not take better care of themselves for something as silly as coffee? SOOOOOOOO MAD and sad this happened.

BTW, did you know Caleb took a bullying victim to prom. She said she was bullied physically and online since the 4th grade. Pretty nice story.
