Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen -X Blog Party - October 26


As Survivor airs here on the East Coast, I'll be live-blogging with the major events.  As always, the real party is in the comments area. Please feel free to join in on the fun! Later on tonight, I will have a post for the BBOTT show/live eviction. I was lackadaisical last night and today -- Whitney was the renom. So, it's Scott, Morgan and Whitney on the block.

Here are the blog pool match updates from the Lovely Lifeguard Laurie:

Vanua - Orange 
Chris Hammons - Cheryl in NC, Jennasmom, Lanell from TN 
David Wright - Buzzmaam, MikesGirl, Sharon C 
Michelle Shubert - Ed in Ohio, Nickelpeed 
Zeke Smith - Beachmom, monty924 , Glenn

Takali - Purple 
Adam Klein - Brian, Kelsey NY, Sharon N 
Figgy Figueroa - Donna in Alabama, Laurie 
Jessica Lewis - Cupcake, Jean, Petals 
Ken McNickle - Dolores in Hollywood, Margo, Russ 
Taylor Lee Stocker - Donna in FL, Janice from GA, Stephanie in Baltimore

Ikabula - Green 
Bret LaBelle - Brandi Peralta, Judi Sweeney, Skyriverblue 
Hannah Shapiro - David, meb, Terry is a Texan 
Jay Starrett - Becky, Jackie, Shayne 
Michaela Bradshaw - Donna in NY, Krysta G, Pinky 
Sunday Burquest - Brenda, Kristen from Ohio, SueGee 
Will Wahl - Cheryl, Indiana Jane

OUT 
x Rachel Ako 
Mari Takahashi - cwcamper, Marthalight 
Paul Wachter - ChickMc, PDX Granny 
Lucy Huang - Delee, ML 
CeCe Taylor - Anonymouse, Merrilee

Fifteen are left. Who will be voted out tonight? Survivor fans ready? Let's go!

David thinks that they made the right decision in voting out CeCe. Zeke, of course, is a happy camper. 

On Ikabula, Jay thinks he has to take care of people. He wants to find the idol. He finds one right in front of Will. Whoops! Michaela walked up on them and now she knows, too. She's one of the best players on their tribe (in my opinion). She tells us it will remain secret unless she needs to snitch to stay in.

Reward Challenge time -- callers with blindfolded players collecting puzzle pieces. The caller will solve the puzzle directing blindfolded players. First prize is a sweet feast, second is cookies. 

Coming from behind, Vanua wins first place! Ikabula won second place. 

Hannah feels faint and they've called medics. Apparently she hyperventilated and ended up with cramping hands. Poor Hannah.

Zeke, realizing he's still bottom of his age group (although the oldest) is thinking he needs to jump ship and ally with the Gen-X bunch.

Hannah is going on about her anxiety issues.

Taylor and Figgy are very smug in their showmance. Taylor thinks they're a power couple. Figgy isn't as certain they should "come out." Jessica tells her they knew. Ken knew, too. Ken tells us that he's going to make sure he's okay and that Figgy/Taylor are like kids playing camp.

Immunity Challenge time! Race balance beams on water, collect six bags, three balls, table maze. 

Ikablua wins Immunity! Vanua is finally safe!

Figgy thinks they should vote out Ken. She pushes Adam in that direction. Of course, Taylor is on board with his Figgy. Jessica proposes to Adam he join up with her and Ken. Ken approaches Adam and promises him safety in the game. Adam isn't sure what to do.

Tribal Council -- lots of giggles, but Adam's still in the middle. He is the only swing vote.

The tally:
Ken, Figgy, Ken, Figgy, Figgy!

Woot! Ken is safe! Adam made the right choice. Taylor is giving him the evil eye.

Hello Ms Jackie, Vincent and everyone! Happy 5th day until Halloween!

I have grilled ham & coconut shrimp kabobs, plus lemon cream pie!

Monty is bringing some phenominal punch Hump Day Punch, whoohoooo!

monty924 said...

Yay!!! I remembered to show up on time. Hey Petals and Jackie... yep, I brought several punch bowls of this delicious brew! Enjoy!!!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Vincent Petals and Monty. I'm baaaaack!!!

monty924 said...

OMG, these kabobs are delish!!

Hey Becky

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie and Vincent!!! Thank you for hosting us!!! Appreciate it!!

Hi Petals and Monty. I'm making some hot cinnamon wine!!

Nickelpeed said...

Michaela is very smart, but also very sneaky! LOL I'm so glad they do not make her come across as stupid. Very smart woman.

monty924 said...

Oh, that sounds good too, Penny. Great to see everyone at the pool party. I completely missed the last one. My mind and all, lol.

Petals said...

This punch is just what I needed, Monty! It's perfect, mmmm Great idea :)


Becky said...

I did not have a computer or telephone for a week. And yes, we paid the bill! My DH (not darling this time) switched our server to Direct TV. The installer came and when he finished connecting up the TV he told Tommy that "you are installed". He waited a few days and then took the box back to Time Warner. The installer lied. They finally got out to day and hooked us up to the computer and telephone.

monty924 said...

This is bound to be painful. The blindfold challenges always are!

monty924 said...

For those who didn't catch the recipe over at the BBOTT post:


Hump Day Punch
6 oz Tequila
3 oz Coconut Rum
2 oz Triple Sec
2 oz Peach Schnapps
1 oz Lime Juice
6 oz Pineapple Juice
24 oz Orange juice
All in a large punch bowl. Mix well and add ice and fruit...

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! Been busy and my kitchen and BBQ are a mess, but I have some Baby Back Ribs, beans & rice and a nice green salad. If anyone is hungry help yourself. I'll take one of the Stella's I know are over by Petals!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

Poor David

tbc said...

Hi all!! I hope you all had a good week. I'm beating a bottle of wine tonight. It went over well last week

Nickelpeed said...

David is SO, SO stupid!!!

SueGee said...

That punch would knock me out LOL. No more hump days when you retire - I get 6 Saturdays and one Sunday every week!

SueGee said...

Cubs +1 now 2-0

Becky said...

Wonderful food. I brought the Stella's this week. Yes, Jackie, thank you for hosting. I was not nice to be around last Wednesday. Great challenge!

Nickelpeed said...

I will be so angry at David. If they lose because of him; and he uses his idol, and someone else is sent home because of him, I will be sooooooo angry!

monty924 said...

Come on Zeke

Petals said...

Dillweed is just a lost cause...how does he function in normal life?

monty924 said...

Woot woot

monty924 said...

Serves her right for being so obnoxious on the mat

Oh, hang in there Hannah :((

Nickelpeed said...

That's great!! What a great come back. Can't stand David.

Poor Hannah, hope she's okay.

Becky said...

Great, now the screen has frozen. Hope to get back. I need to go throw DH out of his chair and watch the show there.

Petals said...

SOrry you're having trouble with DirecTV, Becky. I've been with them for 6yrs, and love their service. Once you get the bugs worked-out, I think you'll enjoy it.

tbc said...

Kendoll's team lost. Crap...

SueGee said...

I might end up having to switch to DirectTV too. UVerse is getting phased out now that they are both ATT. I just don't want the dish

Nickelpeed said...

No thanks to David. If it weren't for the others, they would have lost.

Don't feel sorry for Figgy

monty924 said...

Becky, I've been having screen freezes on certain channels with TWC. So annoying. Hope they figure out what's causing it and fix it for you.

Petals said...

Ditto Penny - Figgy gets zero sympathy from me.

SueG, the Dish as in Dish network? Or the dish that you need to get DirecTV?

Nickelpeed said...

I switched from DirecTV to Dish because my phone company bundles. I'm very happy with DishTV

SueGee said...

Dish as for DirectTV. My son has it in Iowa so I'm familiar with it once it is working. I'm going to have such a learning curve on learning the channels and DVR

monty924 said...

Yeah, go Zeke!!!

Petals said...

while I recouped from my surgery, I worked for DirecTV. I worked from home as a call-center rep. I love their service, so I enjoyed working for them. But then AT&T bought them and fired all of the at-home people (grrr).

I'm loyal to DTV b/c when I was super-poor, like in 2010, I called to cancel my service b/c I couldn't afford it. And the guy told me that no, I didn't need to cancel; they would suspend my billing for 6mths until I was on my feet again, then regular billing would resume. It was a life-saver. Since then, I am loyal to them. It's the Scorprio in me. LOL

Speaking of which - what are everyone's Halloween plans?

Nickelpeed said...

Since I live in the middle of nowhere, I can only get a satellite. We don't get cable or anything, so we started out with DirecTV. Their prices went up and up. I started having problems with my DVR, so when my phone company offered a bundle with Dish. We took it.

Nickelpeed said...

Unfortunately, I know many, many Millennials who have a lot of anxiety. LOL

monty924 said...

Agree with all of you on Figgy! We don't have any other cable option than TWC and he won't go back to Dish. Had it and he hated it. Won't do Direct either because he doesn't like satelite.

Sharon N said...

Hi everyone... been a while, but see my guy is still in the hunt!
Somehow, I haven't gotten too attached to anyone in the bunch this time.

DirecTV used to be associated with Verizon, but ATT has it now. Either way, I've gotten good service from them. Switched to CenturyLink Prism and the whole experience was a nightmare from hell. Back to DirecTV again.

Petals said...

🎃 👻

monty924 said...

Oh yes, Penny. Definitely a trait of millenials. See it on a daily basis at work and socially.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm staying home on Halloween. When I was younger, I'd go to all the Halloween parties, but not any more. I really, really miss trick or treaters. We get none out here. First year we were here, we bought candy and nobody came. I was so disappointed, but now we are used to it. I really miss seeing the costumes.

SueGee said...

My sister lives in the middle of nowhere too and they don't even do TV anymore. The still get netflix mailed to them!

Petals said...

Millenials DO all have mental/emotional problems. You know why? Because 90% of their mothers were on Paxil or Prozac when they were conceived. They were born chemically dependent.
JMO

Petals said...

There are few options for the middle-of-nowheres. HughesNet is one that is popular with rural folk.

SueGee said...

Staying home to give out the candy as usual...that is if there is any left by then LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, my husband would agree. I know how to operate my DVR, etc. My husband doesn't. It's all greek to him. He'd rather not bother with it. If anything goes wrong, I have to fix it. LOL. I love my satellite. I don't have a choice, though. We don't have cable; and I won't use an antenna. LOL

SueGee said...

Our only other choice would be Comcast and they have the worst cust service on the planet. And I have NO patience with idiots anymore

Petals said...

Halloween is my bday, so we are doing a pot luck at work, then I'll hand out candy to the kids. It will be like 70° here on Monday, so I hope I get a lot of kids.

Oh geeminy - I hope Figgy or whathisname gets straight-up voted out this week. I hope that tribe tanks the comp on purpose to get her out.

monty924 said...

Agree, Petals and they're also the generation of everyone gets a trophy and other things. They never had to experience failure and learning from the experience. It's okay to fail at things. You figure out how to change and adapt that way.

Petals said...

I ♥ KEN!!! Go get 'em baby!

Petals said...

The mille at our office are just so impatient, too. If it isn't instant, they get angry. If they are waiting more than 5 minutes on hold, they hang-up. If the drive-thru is backed up or slow, they blow their horns.
BRATS! (thanks, you-know-who!)

tbc said...

We have a part for Halloween to go to. I'm going to be Flo from Progressive and my husband will be Jake from State Farm.

SueGee said...

Is he wearing Khakis?

Petals said...

oh, and now it's all about salt water swimming pools. They refuse to live in an apartment complex that has a chlorine pool (ga-ROSS!). It has to be SALT water swimming pools. And an enclosed, climate-controlled garage, NOT a car-port (ewwww!)

LOL

Go David (anyone but Ken, so they can vote out Figgy)

Is Ken throwing it??

Nickelpeed said...

When we first moved out here, HughesNet was our first internet service, which was a subsidary of Direct TV. We hated it. It was always down and was extremely expensive. When they FINALLY got Internet where we lived, we got it through our telephone service and had DirctTV for television. Hated HughesNet.

Petals said...

TBC - GREAT costumes!!! Perfect! I love it!

Anonymous said...

I will be celebrating my Birthday on Halloween and passing out candy to all the ghosts and goblins.

Nickelpeed said...

I hope Chris and them do not lose this time. But they are so slow. I would love to see David voted out.

Micheala is so nasty sometimes.

tbc said...

*party

Petals said...

HURRY green & orange team! (one of the team names sounds like Manure)

Petals said...

Figgy is good at playing with balls...

Kristen from Ohio said...

Sorry, that is me. Celebrating a birthday.

Petals said...

ANON!! Hey Halloween Birthday twin! :)

Nickelpeed said...

Michaela is good. But she can be such a brat.

Dang, I do not want Chris and them to lose. Dang.

monty924 said...

Good teamwork there. Zeke's in trouble :((

tbc said...

Yes, SueBee. Lol

Petals said...

Oh shut UP Michaela - thug.

monty924 said...

YES YES YES

Petals said...

YAY! C;mon Michelle & Zeke!

Petals said...

and I eat my words when Michaela helps. YEEEEEPS

Sharon N said...

Penny, it's the same way in our household.
Sis and bro-in-law are both technophobes and totally hopeless with anything that's not on/off up/down. That works though because all the shows recorded are mine! lmao
However, I'm also their go-to person for fixing anything that goes wrong (including computers).

monty924 said...

There's just something that I like about her, lol. She's not afraid to say what's on her mind. Will it be a winning move though, LOL

tbc said...

Keep Ken!!! My Ken Doll.

monty924 said...

Hey Sharon

Petals said...

the editing is so good on this show. Best production ever.


YAY!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Pour me up some more Hump Punch, please Friend. :)

Buh-Bye love bird(s)!

Nickelpeed said...

YES!! They were very luck.

I want Ziggy to get voted out. Not Ken, though. Maybe Ken could one of the Millennials to change his mine.

Kristen from Ohio said...

I want Foggy to go home. Petals, Happy Birthday, Monday.

monty924 said...

And tbc and anyone else I missed

Petals said...

Penny- I love that you called her Ziggy. That is hilarous. Not sure if you did it on purpose, but I love that name - Ziggy. bwhahahahahaaha!

If Ken gets voted out, he can come stay with Me. heeehee

monty924 said...

Sliding a cool glass of punch to Petals. Anyone else?

I want Figgy gone, but I doubt it will happen

Becky said...

I'm back. I hope it continues and doesn't jam up again. We don't do Halloween any more. When the "pregnant nun" (and she was very pregnant and the guy who had a better beard than any grown man (and it was real) we decided they were getting too old. We take bags to the kids who live on our street, then turn out the lights.

Petals said...

Hey Kristen, thank you!

Becky said...

Oh, I left our the women who arrived carrying babies who could barely hold up their head and a pillowcase.

Nickelpeed said...

If Ken and Jessica could get Adam to vote Figgy out, it would be good. I don't know though.

monty924 said...

My bet is on Ken to be safe, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Did I call her Ziggy??? LOLOLOL. It was a mistate, but the Z works.

No, no, not Ken!!!!!!

Becky said...

Petals, I bet your husband would love that, Petals!

Petals said...

C'mon Jessica - work on him! TRY HARDER!

Sharon N said...

Hi Monty! And Happy Birthday to Petals and Kristen!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, I just do not want Ken to go. They need him right now or they could keep losing.

Does anyone there have the idol? Isn't it Adam?

Petals said...

Becky - he probably wouldn't notice. bwhahaha

Anonymous said...

Come on Adam, do the right thing.

Nickelpeed said...

Happy Birthday Petals and Kristen!!!!

Petals said...

I forgot who has idols except Dill.

Nickelpeed said...

Gosh darn it! Please, please, not Ken.

Petals said...

Monty - I may need a to-go cup of this punch, to get me thru the BB vote.

tbc said...

OMG

Nickelpeed said...

Dillweed has one, Jay has one; and I think Adam has one, but I'm not sure.

monty924 said...

Me too, Petals. I miss so much during the pool talk, lol

Petals said...

So Ken is a model? But he's also witty and has survival skills?
I wuv him! PLEASE let him stay.

SueGee said...

Happy Birthday Petals and Kristen!!! I'll bring a cake next week - better late than never. Any requests??

Nickelpeed said...

I think Ken is gone. I'll be very, very sad. I hope Adam changes things up.

Anonymous said...

Thanks, for the BD wishes!

monty924 said...

Do it Adam... don't let those two intimidate you

tbc said...

Ken is the man! The millenials are just jealous

SueGee said...

Cubs still 2-0 Indians being no-no'd

Nickelpeed said...

Oh man, Adam, do the right thing. Numbers can change.

Petals said...

c'mon Adam! Be smart!

tbc said...

Happy Birthday to both Petals and Kristen!! Halloween is a cool bday

monty924 said...

Please let it be Figgy

Nickelpeed said...

Sue Gee, I would like it to go to Cubs tonight. They played bad last night.

SueGee said...

We could call her Fizzy LOL

David said...

Hello everyone. =)

Late to the party but just in time for the show to start here.

Happy early Birthday Petals and Kristen. !!

monty924 said...

Bwahahaha... buh-bye Figgy

Nickelpeed said...

Make it gooooooood. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

tbc said...

There is cheering going on in my house!!

monty924 said...

Fizzy is great also but she's G-O-N-E now :)))

Nickelpeed said...

Adam, you don't have to explain anything. You did right. Dang, she's crying.

Petals said...

LOVE IT!!! WHOOOOO!!!!

And her boyfriend is NEXT! Thank you, Adam!

"Awww, whaah! I can't scrog my dirty boyfriend in the tent with 6 other people listening, pooor me!"

Kristen from Ohio said...

Now that was worth waiting for!!!!

Sharon N said...

Hi David!

Nickelpeed said...

The Millennials will all probably be angry at Adam. I'm hoping one of the other teams get to vote and vote out another Millennial to take the pressure off of him.

monty924 said...

SueGee, I'm WS neutral this year. I'm a NL gal so rooting for the Cubs, but I'm also a Cleveland Indians fan so rooting for them too. Happy either way. I want to see it go seven games though so the long awaited championship will be really worth it for either of them.

David said...

Yaaaaa, they voted out the right person. Can't wait to see it. =)

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great week.

Jackie said...

I kept mistyping Figgy as Fuggy and correcting it in the post.

Thanks for coming by!

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you so much Jackie. Appreciate you giving us a place to meet.

I will not be here next Wednesday. Basketball has started up at the college and I'm working. I'll try to peek in.

SueGee said...

Ok - see you later at the eviction if I remember. First I need to go clean up the mess I made in the kitchen ha ha ha

Nickelpeed said...

LOL Jackie. I called her Ziggy.

Sharon N said...

Thanks for hosting Jackie!
Now I get to watch... :)


monty924 said...

Oh great... my Zeke is teaming up with David next week??? Not sure what to think of that.
Great show and even better party company. Thanks Jackie. Everyone have a great week and Happy Birthday to Petals and Kristen. We will definitely partay next week.

Hugs all

Becky said...

Petals, if he comes to your house may I come a just swoon? He is beautiful. I think Adam made a wise choice.

Jackie, thank you for hosting.It's good to be back.

SueGee said...

Monty - grew up in Chicagoland as a Cubs fan, but have been out here so long I'm more in the Giants & A's fandom... Happy to see them finally in a WS

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, I'm neutral, too. My team is the Reds. I'm just glad to see two new teams who have waited a long time to get there. Even though I am in Ohio, I'm kind of partial to the Cubbies. But if Indians win, that's fine, too.

monty924 said...

Hey David... have a good one and will see you in the BBOTT comments

monty924 said...

Same here, Penny. REDS all the way but I usually root for the NL in the WS except I just had to root for KC and the Royals to Cueto and Edinson could get their well deserved championship. :))

tbc said...

Good night all. Thanks, Jackie!!
