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

Jury
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.

Hey Jackie and all who arrive. Sad, but I think Tai is in deep doodoo tonight.

I brought oven fried chicken with a cajun kick. Dig in!!

monty924 said...

Hi SueGee... didn't see you hiding behind the pool chairs.

Petals said...

hi.

I'm here, but I'm still in mourning, so I won't be whoooping it up tonight.
With last week's tragedy, I'd almost forgotten the best Tribal in Survivor
history.

monty924 said...

Hey Petals. It's okay... a party is the best way to celebrate and get out of the funk.

monty924 said...

Scot's Ponderosa was really nice. I'm always amazed how jerks on the island come off as normal people and okay with me once they hit Ponderosa. Everyone should check it out.

Petals said...

monty - I'm still just sick about it. It's not real. I can't even type
about it.

*sigh*

Meanwhile - WTG Tai

Jackie said...

Hey, guys!

Pinky said...

Good evening all - hope Tai can find a way to hang in there tonight.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Jackie, SueGee, Monty/Homie, & Petals et al.....

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and all you peeps.

monty924 said...

Hey Pinky and Ed!!

Ed in Ohio said...

That was some kinda' tribal last week. Now it's gonna' be interesting to see how it plays out.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky

monty924 said...

I know, Ed. I have a feeling there will be more fireworks at tribal tonight. :)))

Pinky said...

Hi Monty. I'm making fried chicken too. No Cajun kick tho.

Ed in Ohio said...

Big music fan here too! Seems so many leave us too soon.

Becky said...

I hated missing AR Friday, but we were out of town at a reunion. Hope everyone behaved themselves. I promised Jackie and Vincent that the guests wouldn't trash their apt. From Jackie's blog, the upstairs neighbors tried to disrupt her peace.

Petals, hope everything with you will look up.

monty924 said...

Pinky, it's great. I just put about a 1/4 teaspoon of red and black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder, and a 1/8 teaspoon of thyme in the breading. It's a good but subtle kick :)))

monty924 said...

Becky, we missed you Friday night. Ed, this has without a doubt been the worst year for music lovers. 2016 has not been kind. :((

Petals said...

thanks Becky

monty924 said...

Hey, the Survivors are having fried chicken too

Ed in Ohio said...

I know Monty. I remember Prince's half time perfromance @ the Super Bowl (in the Rain) quite a show!

monty924 said...

Go GIRLS

Ed in Ohio said...

Julia always seems like the 'odd girl out'

Pinky said...

Must be karma - Julia is left behind with all the men.

monty924 said...

Julia is because she was the first to flip over to the mean boys. I'm still diggin' her though. She might be the youngest out there but she has guts.

Petals said...

loving Tai

monty924 said...

Ed, that SB performance was almost heaven sent. It was perfect!!

Petals said...

Oh yeah - Jason is the crummy little toady Grover Dill. LOL

Becky said...

I don't think the girls trust Julia. I don't blame them. I am afraid they will turn on Tai.

Ed in Ohio said...

I like Julia too! Guess I'm rooting for her the most.

Petals said...

Every performance He did was perfection.

Petals said...

is this the first time that women have had this much power? I mean, in Survivor history?

Ed in Ohio said...

Prince had the vocals for sure but was also quite the guitarist as well!

Petals said...

he mastered 17 instruments before he was 20. He composed, arranged and performed every song on all of his albums. Well, his father, John L Nelson (jazz pianist) co-composed some cuts on Diamonds & Pearls.

Ed in Ohio said...

Jason seems like a different guy now that his 'bro' Scott is gone

monty924 said...

One look at all those bug bites makes me even more sure I would never play Survivor. Yuck

Petals said...

you're right Ed - he lost his big buddy...

Petals said...

how does Michelle have such a tubby tummy when they are on the Survivor diet? most chicks lose weight, not gain.

Nickelpeed said...

Dropping in to say hi real quick. Will be peeking in when I can. Jason needs to go home. Thanks for hosting us, Jackie.

Ed in Ohio said...

The 'old guy' sure is floating under the radar!

Terry is a Texan! said...

I like Tai and Cydney,,,Miss Laurie is in the pool from Texas!!

monty924 said...

Not really, Petals. Fans vs. Favs part 1 was dominated by Parviti and the other girls. Prince was a just a musical genius period. Just watch the RARHOF induction when he sat in on While My Guitar Gently Weeps. The best ever... :((

Petals said...

I love how the chicken LOVES Tai. They'd better not
hurt him; I don't think I can take it. LOL

monty924 said...

Hi Penny and Terry

Petals said...

Monty - I've had that RARHOF clip on my 'puter for years. My fave part is
how Dhani Harrison just beams when Prince is shredding that solo.

SueGee said...

Hi everyone!! Think I'm here to stay now. I'm hoping they can get rid of Jason tonight and make this a friendlier game. No room for revenge and childish behavior, Wonder if they ever got their tools back?

SueGee

monty924 said...

Agree, Petals. He was beaming for sure. Pure love <3

Ed in Ohio said...

Memory + Puzzle....tough challenge

Petals said...

speaking of Dhani...OMG, was there ever a more cloned version of father/son? Geeminy, I thought Julian Lennon was a ringer for John, but wow - Dhani looks like George birthed him single-handedly. LOL Right?

Ed in Ohio said...

Go Julia!!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Jason, Tai, or Julia going home???

Ed in Ohio said...

^ I should've said going tro Jury!

SueGee said...

Please send Jason home NOW!!!

monty924 said...

Right!! Watch the earlier tribute in England with Sir Paul and Eric Clapton. He was the same way there. You can't deny him as George's son for sure.

Nickelpeed said...

Julia is my pool girl. I don't want her to go home! Needs to be Jason.

Petals said...

did Jason say the obvious thing? "None of us will win against Tai?"

monty924 said...

If they're saying Julia, I'm saying editing. WRONG

Nickelpeed said...

Julia is my pool girl. I don't want her to go home! Needs to be Jason.

Nickelpeed said...

Jason will say snything to not go home.

Ed in Ohio said...

Aubry really dislikes Julia for some reason

Petals said...

Ed - jealousy.

monty924 said...

Ed, I dislike Aubry for some reason... LOL

Petals said...

oh no...Tai?

Ed in Ohio said...

Petals & Monty I agree with you both^

Ed in Ohio said...

Tai's big move last week may come back to bite him.....hoping Julia stays!

Becky said...

If looks could kill, Scott's daggers would kill Tai.

Nickelpeed said...

Jason will say snything to not go home.

Petals said...

lol, yeah Becky

SueGee said...

Does Tai's extra vote have to go before the votes are read? Or can he wait and cast it like a super vote?

Pinky said...

tai will be voted out if he doesn't play the idol. I'm pretty sure he will.

Ed in Ohio said...

Michelle & Julia both have flowers in their hair.....sign of unity?

monty924 said...

Tai is just too good hearted to play this game.

monty924 said...

Play it Tai

monty924 said...

O M G

Becky said...

Good!

Pinky said...

Whew. tai has guts!!!!!

monty924 said...

Noooo!!! So sad

Ed in Ohio said...

#@!%&)((^%$$###

Becky said...

No chicken tonight, Julia!

Ed in Ohio said...

I'm out! G'nite everyone. Have a good one!!

Thanks Jackie!

monty924 said...

Now I'm left with only Tai to root for and I don't think he stands a chance in that pool of sharks. Maybe I'll switch to Cydney or Michelle. I just don't like any of the others.

Becky said...

Thank you for hosting, Jackie. Give Vincent a treat from Auntie Becky, please.

Nickelpeed said...

Nooooooooooooooo! Crap.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

Thanks Jackie. Will see you all next week. Won't be here for the TAR party on Friday. Have a great weekend.
