Survivor: Kaoh Rong - April 27 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!
I hope that between his Immunity advantage and his idol, Tai is safe through Tribal. I wouldn't shed any tears if Jason went away.
Lifeguard Laurie has been keeping up with the pool --
Aubry Braco - Jennasmom, Glenn
Cydney Gillon - Leo Lionharted, PDX Granny
Joseph Del Campo - Grandi, Petals
Julia Sokolowski - Indiana Jane, Nickelpeed
Kyle Jason - Nana in the NW, Sharon N.
Michele Fitzgerald - Brian TCC, Kelsey NY
Tai Trang - Margo, anonymouse
Neal Gottlieb (when the infection is gone) - Merrilee, JoyzJenn
Nick Maiorano - Laurie, ML
Debbie Wanner - meb, Rbennie
Scot Pollard - Delee, Pinky
Let's get this show going! Not to mention, the party ...
Of course, Jason is very upset with Tai. He's lost both his partner and his idol. Michele and Julie are upset they were left out of the loop. Yet, Tai is now in with Aubry, Cydney and Joe.
Tai apologized to Jason and Jason acted cool about it. But, he's not.
Reward Challenge time -- they race through obstacles to collect three rings, tethered together in random pairs. They then have to toss the rings onto a fish hook target. Jason picked the wrong rock and won't participate. Julie/Aubry, Tai/Joe, Michele/Cydney. The prize is a helicopter tour of the island followed by a fried chicken feast.
Cydney and Michele win. Can pick one person to join them. They chose Aubrey to go with them because she hasn't eaten.
While on Reward, Michele works her way back in with the girls.
Cydney and Aubry know they don't want to go to the final three with Tai. But he can wait. They have others who need to go first and they need Tai.
Jason and Julia think that, with Michele, they only need one more to get Tai out of the game. They're thinking Cydney. Jason wants to sell her on the idea.
Immunity Challenge! Race to a platform, memorized symbols and corresponding numbers, open a combination lock, solve a puzzle. Julia is in the lead, Joe is sitting it out due to exhaustion. Now Michele is also working on her puzzle.
Michele wins with the word BLINDSIDED.
In discussion, the name Jason is brought up. But the consensus seems to be Julia. Michele isn't too happy with that. And, it would be typical of Survivor to have a flip. Thankfully, Tai is suspicious -- he will bring his idol and his advantage to Tribal.
Some of the key votes seem to be up in the air as Tribal Council starts.
The tally --
Tai does NOT play his idol. Aubry whispered to him he's safe.
Tai, Julia, Tai, Julia, Julia, Julia.
Julia gets the boot. Even her best buddy Michele voted for her to go. Only Jason and Julia voted Tai.
