Survivor: Kaoh Rong - March 23 Blog Party


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. And beverages. Don't forget the beverages!

Lifeguard Laurie is running the pool and, supreme lifeguard she is, has the new tribes all down pat for us --

Blue - Chanloh
Cydney Gillon - Leo Lionharted, PDX Granny
Kyle Jason - Nana in the NW, Sharon N.
Michele Fitzgerald - Brian TCC, Kelsey NY
Nick Maiorano - Laurie, ML Debbie Wanner - meb, Rbennie
Neal Gottlieb - Merrilee, JoyzJenn

Yellow - Gondol
Tai Trang - Margo, anonymouse
Scot Pollard - Delee, Pinky
Joseph Del Campo - Grandi, Petals
Julia Sokolowski - Indiana Jane, Nickelpeed
Peter Baggenstos - Jackie, Tammy
Aubry Braco - Jennasmom, Glenn

Torchless
Darnell Hamiltonn - free play!
Jennifer Lanzetti - David, Paula Bell
Elizabeth Markham - Donna in FL, Terry is a Texan
Alecia Holen - Becky, Donna NY
Anna Khait - monty924 , SueGee from the Left Coast

Medical Evac
Caleb Reynolds - Ed in Ohio, Stephanie in Baltimore

Despite technical difficulties for most of the day with my Comcast signal, things seem to be working. I'm keeping my fingers crossed even though it makes for more typos.

Okay ... let's see how the new tribes rock the boat! (Although Lifeguard Laurie cautions that rocking the boat while in the pool is frowned upon.)

Hmm. Peter is trying to align with Tai and plant seeds that Joe needs to go if they head to Tribal again. That could backfire, y'know.

On the other tribe, Debbie is working on Nick. Now, I'm not thrilled with Nick. But he's smart enough to see through her. She's claiming to once modeling. Eek.

Tree Mail -- tribes release buoys from the floors of the ocean and throw them into baskets. Yikes. Now Debbie is referring to Nick as "Adonis." I personally don't get the beauty of Nick. Maybe it's just me.

Reward Challenge is the one to which tree mail referred. It's a Survivor picnic that's at stake. (Or, perhaps at steak.) What a surprise -- Scot is shooting the baskets for his tribe. It's Nice on the other side. Scot isn't doing any great moves. Nick is running ahead. Now they're tied. Scot redeems himself. Gondol wins the feast!

Since Michele set her tribe back originally by not quickly releasing the buoys, she feels she needs to get back in favor. Although, in the long run, they almost won despite her failure to do her part fast.

Huh. Now Peter has latched onto Julie with plans to get Aubry out, then Joe. Aubry thinks Julia should go. Both Joe and Aubry are a bit suspicious of Peter, Aubry more than Joe.

Michele got Debbie to say they're going to go after Jason. She goes to Nick and he tells her that she's the target. He wants to "keep her under his wing." She sees through that.

Joe knows that Peter is working against him. So, he confronts him and asks him to his face if he's trying to take him out. So, Peter lies. And Joe knows he's lying.

Immunity Challenge time! Both tribes work together to get through obstacles, two knock blocks down, then they stack the blocks. Tribe with the best teamwork will win.

Chanloh wins Immunity!

Now Aubry is having second thoughts about getting rid of Peter. She thinks they won't have the numbers if he goes. She wants Joe to talk to Peter and work it out. Peter still lies to him. Now Peter is turning towards getting Julia out with Joe and Aubry. Peter tells Scot they'll be voting Julia. Scot knows Peter is a snake. Tai and Julia try to convince Aubry that Peter's been scheming against her. Joe tells Aubry he's sticking to the plan to vote out Julia.

Well, we'll know soon ... it's time for Tribal Council and Jeff's Probsting questions to rile things up a bit.

Heh. They're all whispering Peter.

Time to vote.

The tally --
Peter, Julia, Peter, Julia, Peter, Peter.

There goes my pool pick. I'm a free agent.

The merge is on for next week!

SueGee said...

High 60's here today so we broke out the BBQ for dinner

Petals said...

Nickelpeed said...

Tai is a little worm. I bet he goes back and tells Joe.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Happy Puppy Day!!!

Petals said...

oh shut up, Peter...@@

SueGee said...

I night disappear for a bit...will try and make it back for the TC

Pinky said...

Really warm here in North Texas today - in the 80s.

Nickelpeed said...

I do not like Peter, either, Petals.

Petals said...

Where is everyone?

monty924 said...

Hi folks! Here I am jumping in late again. I have a crock pot full of beef roast, potatoes, carrots and onions. Some warm bread to go with it. Dig in!

Nickelpeed said...

LOL...Debbie...LOLOLOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi everybody!

Peter might be a tad too confident in his game play

monty924 said...

Slide me a mojito but make mine on the rocks :))

Nickelpeed said...

Sounds delicious, Monty!!

Petals said...

yeah, Nick is kinda cute...

Petals said...

MONTY!!!!!! hi. Happy Puppy Day to Joey

monty924 said...

Hi there, Homie. Who are we rooting for now???

David said...

Hello everyone. =)

I brought Broaster Fried Chicken from a local eatery. It is very good.

monty924 said...

Oh yes, Petals. We took Joey for a pedicure this afternoon to celebrate Happy Puppy Day :)) <3

Petals said...

Hi David!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Monty! I was was gonna' see who you & Sue Gee liked (ladies 1st)

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I don't know which I hate most -- Google or AOL.

monty924 said...

Those balls look like bowling balls. maybe it's just me, LOL

Petals said...

Hi Becky!Happy Puppy Day!

*pouring Mojito for everyone*

Nickelpeed said...

Hi David!

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow! The food menu is lookin' really good tonight!

Pinky said...

Scot should win this easily...but you never know.

monty924 said...

Hmmm, Ed. Let me think about it. I like Tai, but I don't he's going to last in this game. I think we need to watch a couple more weeks. :))

Petals said...

Nick holding his own against NBA...

monty924 said...

Mr. NBA can't make a basket???

Nickelpeed said...

Sometimes I wish Jeff would just shut up!!! LOL

Petals said...

yeeeeeekssss

Petals said...

Nick did awesome, he'd better not be going home

Ed in Ohio said...

I agree Monty. Let's play it smart & wait a little while longer.

Mr. NBA wasn't very good in the NBA either!!

Becky said...

He did a good job to be up against a professional.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, that's disappointing for yellow.

Petals said...

Get rid of the loan shark or bail bondsman or whatever he is. He is a BULLY!

Nickelpeed said...

No, he wasn't Ed.

Becky said...

Penny, I agree with you about Jeff!

David said...

I have already been out of the pool a couple of weeks and still can't decide who I want to support. lol

Petals said...

Jackie - are you here? Do you have cable (yet)? Need a Mojito refill?

OMGosh, sooo much good food. I am gonna need a doggie bag

monty924 said...

These mojitos are hitting the spot. What a day at work today trying to get a point across. I've lost my touch with it. Hopefully, I left a little bit of an impression... enough at least.

Ed in Ohio said...

Penny & Becky I agree Jeff doth talk too much!

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, I cannot see Nick going home. He's too valuable to them.

Petals said...

David - I have silver fox Joe in the pool, but I like Tai - who is the quintessential underdog in this competition.

monty924 said...

Agree, David and I've only been out for a week. I really didn't even know my girl because she was invisible up until the episode whe went home.

Petals said...

hope so Penny ;) You know I need a cute boy over whom to swoon, LOL

Becky said...

There, I finally got my avitar changed!

monty924 said...

I do know whow I don't want to root for... PETER

Petals said...

Go home Peter!

monty924 said...

*who not whow

Nickelpeed said...

He talks about conniving? Looks who's talking.

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Becky said...

What type of work do you do, Monty.

monty924 said...

make thaqt Debbie or Peter. It's a wash

Petals said...

Love the new avi, Becky

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky!!!

monty924 said...

I work with really opinionated people, Becky. I'll put it that way, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I would not trust Neal, but who know's about Debbie? I certainly would NOT trust Brawn. No way.

David said...

I managed to reverse my sleep/work routine, took a week, so now I an working when used to sleep and vise-versa. I am getting used to working this graveyard shift now. Figured out why I was first choice to do the switch, I am single without kids. lol

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, that could be any job out there. LOL. What do you teach?

Becky said...

I looked back up to see if there were any comments on Debbie when she said "I used to be a model, I did a lot of it". As what, the BEFORE pictures? I am old as dirt and about as attractive, but she makes me look like a pinup! I know, I am also tacky.

Petals said...

Well, David - at least you don't have to deal with rush hour traffic anymore. :)

Petals said...

Becky, LMAO!!!!! That was effing hilarious (the 'before' comment)

Nickelpeed said...

I used to work Mid-shift. I'm still a night owl because of that. Hardest part was sleeping in a residential area, with everyone else up and making noise. Now, I live in the country with quiet cows and sheep. LOL

Pinky said...

hand model maybe????

Becky said...

David, you can save a lot of money being on graveyards! Work all day, sleep all night.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, Becky, that is so funny!

Peter is talking waaaaay toooo much.

Nickelpeed said...

Joe is very lazy, there is no doubt about that.

Becky said...

Oh, another Secret Agent Man!

monty924 said...

Petals said...

LOVE IT, JOE!! He is getting hard-core on Peter, HAAHAHA

Ed in Ohio said...

Get 'em Joe!!

David said...

Debbie could have made a good after model in a don't do drugs commercial also. =)

One of my "neighbors" has cows and sheep Penny. They can be noisy too. lol

Petals said...

wow - these challenges are so cool this year.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh definitely, Monty. No need to worry. Teaching is very hard.

monty924 said...

Agree, Petals. I love the challenges this season.

Nickelpeed said...

I love these challenges, too, Petals. Very challenging. I do miss the Cowboy though.

Nickelpeed said...

This is going to be interesting getting it that high.

Ed in Ohio said...

Scott's using his height

Nickelpeed said...

Jeff needs to SHUT UP!!! Yack, Yack Yack.

Petals said...

Good, Gondol can get rid of Peter


Bad storms here...tornadoes, hail (and a very drunk, jerk husband.)

Nickelpeed said...

Peter's got a temper. I wonder if Gondol is going for the beauty again?

Becky said...

I like Peter. I hope he doesn't go. I also like Joe, but he is lazy. Just stay away from the little guy.

Petals said...

Lost our cable...

Nickelpeed said...

Uh oh, Petals. Stay safe.

Petals said...

Fill me in ... please. LOL

Petals said...

thanks Penny. We're ok so far. I hope we don't lose power, I hate that!

SPeaking of which, Jackie had mentioned that her cable was iffy for tonight due to servicing (I think)...so that's where she is. :(

Nickelpeed said...

My husband made me laugh at the Superman vs Batman. I asked him who was going to win. He said it depends on if Batman has kryptonite. If he doesn't, he's going to get his butt kicked. However, the writers can make it any way they want. LOL

Becky said...

Penny, I just went back and read my comment to David. I got it backa$$ward.

David said...

Still 20 minutes to go. This must be a rough tribal coming up or they are going to spend a lot of time on the tribe before.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, of topic....Jackie. Is Shemar Moore leaving Criminal Minds?

Petals said...

dang, I hate that I am missing this

Nickelpeed said...

I knew what you meant, Becky.

monty924 said...

Can we just say good-bye to Peter tonight and get it over with?

Petals said...

Penny - the critics aren't happy about the Batman v Superman, but the audiences will LOVE it. I wonder how Ben will do in the batsuit.

Petals said...

^5 Monty. He's so smarmy.

Ed in Ohio said...

Julia can't seem to catch a break

monty924 said...

What's the blondes name talking to Tai now? I think I like her. She knows what's going on with Peter and she has to get in with the tribe because she was out last week in isolation. GET RID OF PETER!!

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it. They're going after Julia....my pool pick. Crap. Please Scot talk to them about 3 on a 3 vote. Tai, stay with them.

Tai can change it totally. You watch. They'll stay with Julia. UGH!!!

monty924 said...

No, Tai... get rid of Peter

Nickelpeed said...

Tai, you are a snake. Dang, going against all your ex-team mates. Darn it.

Petals said...

Ack - what's going on?

Pinky said...

Petals - they're debating: Julia or Peter.

Here comes tribal.

Ed in Ohio said...

Well here goes motor mouth Jeff! Conducting tribal

Petals said...

thanks pinky

monty924 said...

Julia making sense at tribal. Come on girl... hang on

Nickelpeed said...

I just can't believe they do not want to do a tie. Tai is so fast to vote against him ex-Beauty tribe. They were strong before, but it's like he's totally gone against them.

David said...

I can't help with what's going on Petals. show starts here in 10 minutes. lol

monty924 said...

Brains are sinking here

Pinky said...

Tai and Scot are so connected. They are going with their original plan: Peter. Right????

Nickelpeed said...

If they do not break up the Brains, they all will be taken out, one by one. If it's Julie this week, it'll be Tai the next. Dumb.

Maybe it'll switch it to Peter, which that's what it looks like.

Petals said...

lOl, ok david...

Hey - it's back!!!!

Petals said...

quick-moving storm, whew!

monty924 said...

I think Peter's gone. Julie looked really happy there

Nickelpeed said...

I hope they stick with this. If they do, it will be Peter. But if it's all talk, it's Julia.

Ed in Ohio said...

Yes! I think I'm likin' this!!

monty924 said...

*Julia... not Julie

Petals said...

Yikes, no idea. Was Peter cocky during Tribal?

Nickelpeed said...

They make it look like they all changed their minds, but I don't think so. I think it will be Julia...I hope not

monty924 said...

Audry switched her vote. Bye bye Peter

Petals said...

YEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! LOVE IT!

Nickelpeed said...

YAYAYAYAYAYAY. It's Peter!!!

Pinky said...

hahaha Aubrey flipped!!!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

YYYYeeeeeeessss!

Sorry Jackie

Nickelpeed said...

I'm glad Aubry changed her mind. Good going.

Petals said...

his mouth got him in to trouble...that cocky attitude. Buh-BYE!

monty924 said...

Hey Ed, Sue Gee and David. We may want to hitch up to Julia's wagon now. She showed she knows how to play the game of Survivor.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, my girl is saved for one more week. Sorry Jackie. Aubrey made the right decision.

Jackie said...

Petals -- I've been regularly updating the post itself. My cable has been working okay despite them saying until 10pm.

monty924 said...

Petals, he wasn't cocky... he actually looked lost there. I'm just happy that the brains didn't keep that alliance intact. I'm not rooting for any of them, including Debbie :))

Ed in Ohio said...

Yes Monty, I was just thinking the same thing! Julia's got my vote!! We gonna' need a tribe/pool name now. Ha ha

David said...

Might have to consider that monty. Sorry about your pool pick Jackie...not. =)

Becky said...

Jacvkie, thank you for hosting. I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter. If you will be on the road, drive safe. If you hide the eggs (especially boiled ones and inside) write down where so you can find them all. When our children were young there was one egg we never found. I have often wondered when the motel found it!

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great week. =)

Jackie said...

I didn't care for my pool pick anyway!

Nickelpeed said...

YAY, MERGE. Yayay.

See you all Friday for TAR. Thank you Jackie for giving us a place to meet.

See everyone else next week. Have a great week. Hope all who lost power gets it back soon; and the cable!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Penny I hope you don't mind if we join in with rooting for Julia!

G'Nite All! Have a great weekend!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Jackie said...

No TAR again this week, Penny.

Petals said...

Thank you Jackie, sorry your cable was messed-up :(

Love seeing everyone! See you all next week. xoxoxo

Happy Easter, God Bless

monty924 said...

Thanks Jackie and all. Will see you all next week. Have a great rest of the week and weekend and Happy Easter!!

Nickelpeed said...

The more the merrier, Ed. You'll like Julia. LOL
