Survivor: Millennials vs Gen-X - September 28 Blog Party
Promos show someone with either heart or heat issues. Who could it be?
As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be live-blogging with the major events. As they're all still new to me, I'm sure to be a bit lost about who is whom as the show unfolds. My apologies in advance with that! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Please feel free to join in on the fun!

Survivor fans ready? Nineteen are left. Who will be voted out tonight?
Gen-X doesn't have fire on Day Five. They also have a lot of doubts and a lot of cracks. David, the scared dude, wants to bring them fire to redeem himself a bit.
He's got it! He made fire! They still want him out next. Meanwhile, David is still peeking around for hidden idols. He finds one!
The Kids: Fuggy, er ... Figgy and Taylor are already kissing and cuddling. Do they think this is BB? Even their fellow kids aren't down with that action. Jay tries to talk some sense into Taylor to no avail.
The Older Kids: They have their fishing gear, chosen in the beginning. Ken gets an octopus. And, he gets along with Dave. No, not a bromance. Perhaps the start of an alliance? Dave feels compelled to tell Ken about the idol. For now, at least, Ken seems really taken with the alliance. We'll see how that holds up.
The Kids: Hannah is having a hard time trying to open a coconut. Michaela has the Figgy/Taylor situation down and she's not happy about it. She seems to be blaming it on Figgy being a flirt. Ohh ... cat fight? Now they want each other out.
Older Kids: Paul likes being in control. The others like that idea ... not so much. He's putting a bigger target on his back than Scaredy Dave. Medical issue time and it's PAUL. He wasn't even doing anything all that strenuous. He thinks he's having a heart attack. Medics coming in and we go to commercial (of course). Sunday is worried about the alliance. Go figure. No sign of heart damage -- it was heat stroke and they leave him in the game. Since Paul is David and Ken's target, they welcome his new weakness to the game.
Immunity Challenge time. They're on the water. Dive, race up cargo net, retrieve key, another dive for rings to throw at targets on floating platforms. Reward is a tarp. The Kids take over when David has troubles for the Older Kids. Then CeCe has a bad performance as well. Wait ... Older Kids catching up a bit!
Whoa! Gen-X (Older Kids) wins!
Mari tells us that Figgy will be blindsided. Hmm. Could be! Michelle doesn't want her Taylor, Figgy and Jay alliance broken apart. She wants to plant seeds to get rid of Mari. Now Michelle wants to work with Michaela? Hmm. They want to get Will in with them.
Heh. The Kids are starstruck at Tribal Council. Jay, Hannah and Michelle are whispering and not paying attention. Michelle is trying to get Hannah to vote out Mari. Meanwhile, I'm digging Michaela ... she might get in trouble with others, but she says what she thinks!
Hannah is all confused about her vote and finally does it.
Figgy, Mari, Figgy, Mari, Figgy, Mari, Mari, Mari, Mari.
Those silly kids. They kept the showmance intact and voted out Mari instead.
