Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X Blog Party - November 2


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. 

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
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
Figgy Figueroa - Donna in Alabama, Laurie 

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

Oh, geez. Taylor's world is grey without Figgy. While Adam thinks he made the right choice in voting her out, Taylor promises revenge.

On Vanua, David works on his trust with Zeke, tells him about finding the second idol. Zeke takes the trust seriously ... for the time being.

Time for the Reward Challenge! Work together to unwind, release three balls, push them through a tunnel, place all three on a perch. The prize is a chef cooking for them. Second, kebabs.  

Vanua wins first place! Ikabula gets second place!

On Takali, Ken and Jessica are sizing up which is best for their own strategy -- Adam or Taylor. They think Taylor might be more honest.

On Ikabula, Michaela, worried about showing how strong she is in comps, works on her social game. Hannah thinks Bret is lying about being a funeral director. (He's a cop.) Hannah thinks he's a cop. She has her fellow Millennials also wondering.

Immunity Challenge time! Throwing coconuts into a net, flag with numbers drop, retrieve key with combination from flag numbers, sandbags, target. 

Takali wins Immunity! Vanua takes the second Immunity! It will be the first tribal for Ikabula.

Bret and Sunday are sure that one will go because there are four Millennials against them. The Millennials plan to split the vote in case of an idol. On the second vote they all vote Bret. Meanwhile, Jay is realizing how big a threat Michaela is in the game and works his buddies to vote her out. But it might not happen. Hmm.

The tally:
Bret, Bret, Michaela, Michaela, Michaela, Michaela

She lit into Jay. Hannah goes all panicky.  

I'm sorry to see Michaela go. She is one of the strongest most consistent players this season. 

The merge is next week.

I have some birthdy cake - it's devils food with cream cheese frosting *passing slice to Sue*

Petals said...

I think my 82 Gramma was more athletic than Dillweed. *smh* But he does try...

Petals said...

(82 yr OLD, that was)

SueGee said...

mmmmmmmmm thanks Petals

Joe in NY said...

Hope you feel better, SueGee

Petals said...

c'mon Ken!

Petals said...

this comp seems VERY geared toward the orange team, with the BB player guy...

Joe in NY said...

Mikayla must have played ball. She rocks the shooting comps.

Petals said...

OH NO! Wow!

Nickelpeed said...

Hope you are feeling better, Jackie. SueGee, hope you start feeling better, too.

Petals said...

of course she played. She's a force.

SueGee said...

I so rarely get sick but my dh brought this one back from his trip to Colorado. I'm well medicated...

Cubs up 1-0 after 1/2 inning

Nickelpeed said...

I want to see what's happening. Darn.

Jackie said...

Happy belated birthday, Petals. I can't remember if I wished you one on FB or not. I've been sick since Monday. I blame SueGee! (It actually sounds like the same illness.)

monty924 said...

Late but I made it before the show was over, lol. Howdy to all of you upthread and Jackie.

Petals said...

oh no! Thanks Ms J - sorry you are sick! :(

monty924 said...

Petals, I brought champagne to celebrate your birthday tonight with the gang. ♥

Nickelpeed said...

Happy belated Birthday, Petals.

Petals said...

MONTY!!!!!!!!! hello

So our remote is broken in the main TV room, so I am watching in the kitchen. I hate these breakfast table chairs, but that is how much I wanted to 'see' all of you :)

SueGee said...

Howdy Monte!

Jackie - sorry to hear you're sick too. Hope it passes quickly! I hate sore throats.

Petals said...

oh get OVER it, MIchelle! @@ Yes, boy, vote her out!

Uh oh - I am avoiding the political talk.

monty924 said...

Jackie, feel better soon... sorry to hear you've been under the weather.

Petals said...

Michea is not my kinda chick, but I have to admire her dedication to the game. I forget if she's a Mille or a GenX, tho.

monty924 said...

Am I the only one who thinks that Dillweed is going far into this season? He's just getting that kind of edit.

monty924 said...

She's a Millie

Petals said...

weirdo - calling out the cop. BLUE LIVES MATTER!

monty924 said...

Now they're sounding like BB houseguests

Petals said...

No, Monty, I agree. His pasty, skinny butt is lasting longer than I'd imagined.

Yikes - so the MIlles can actually SMELL cop? Scary.

SueGee said...

He smells like donuts?

monty924 said...

Speaking of Halloween candy, I have two large bags of Tootsie Roll Pops. I have no idea why I still buy candy at this point. I had one trick or treater and it was my 6 yo nephew who's Dad drove him to my house, LOL.

Dig in folks!! Grape is my fav :)))

Becky said...

Hey, no problems. I was afraid I wouldn't be here tonight. I have a friend here recovering from surgery. She had no place to go except home and lives in a house on piers on a river -- alone. She is 81 and I just couldn't let that happen, even in the midst of no countertops.

She is doing well. Thank goodness she is in bed, hopefully asleep. She doesn't like TV and will talk through everything.

She has three boys and a daughter-in-law, but one is in the nursing home paralyzed on half his body (I met her there because her son fell in love with Momma and I did with him at how sweet he was to her. The other is in horrible health and his wife works. The youngest son is on the road most of the week. He came for the surgery, spent the night in his mother's room and brought her out to my house. Then he drove 12 hours to be in a meeting the next morning - in another state. He also came into the house with a hugh container of slice brisket, sauce and buns because he knew that we had no stove. We have eaten off it two days and there is more there. I had bought a roasted chicken at the store. We have the three day rule at our house. The third day it goes to the freezer, you eat it or it goes in the trash. I am going to ask Beverly if she minds if I freeze it. I can send it home with her when she leaves. Jackie, I apologize for being so off topic, but I had to let you know.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm done with work, but won't make it home in time to see any of it. Thank God for DVR's. Meant to say hi everyone.

Petals said...

so all of you pet-lovers will appreciate this:
Halloween night, I have my candy & my door open and am seeing around 5 kids every few minutes.
Suddenly, there is an adorable (clearly an inside pet) cat on my porch! Crackly-meowing and rubbing and wanting me to take her inside. She was lost from her real home, which was prolly my neighbors (but which one??). I couldn't take it, her looking at me thru the glass - I had to blow out my jack'o'lantern and turn off my light.
I pray she found her real home. But I know ME - if I'd looked at her cute face for one minute longer, I'd have taken her inside and she'd be in my lap right now.

LOL My funny Halloween kitty story. BTW - she was gone at 3am, so hopefully she made it to her real home.

Petals said...

Becky - you are so generous! God has a special place in Heaven for you! *prayers * for your friend, who is blessed to know you.

monty924 said...

Remember you saying that on FB, Petals. Hope she found her way back too.

Petals said...

Go KEN DOLL!

monty924 said...

Hi Becky. Agree with Petals ♥

SueGee said...

You are a good friend Becky!!

Petals said...

Monty - I LOVE animals, and it was so hard to keep turning her away (gently). But in my heart, I know she found the right front door. ;)

Petals said...

HI PennY!

monty924 said...

There's you Ken Doll :)))

Petals said...

Monty - ONE? Uno? really? I had scads! The cars were bumper to bumper on my street when I closed up shop.


YAY KEN !!!! WHOOOOOO

Petals said...

is one team named Vanilla?

monty924 said...

yay, my Zeke is safe

Petals said...

They;d better not vote-out Mich. She's their only hope, but if they recognize her strength, she's a sitting duck.

monty924 said...

So who does it look like will go home? I missed the first part of the show tonight.

SueGee said...

No one comes around here until it is dark, and it rained later on - so we had maybe 50 or so.

Petals said...

My Jessica is still in the game - translucent as she is, LOL

Petals said...

OMG - CANNOT wait to see Hacksaw Ridge! Mel is back with an Oscar contender!

Joe in NY said...

apparently the term "rhetorical question" didn't register with that tribe. LOL

Petals said...

MOnty - not sure. Sunday or ...bret? Are the names they are floating.

tbc said...

Ahh, my Ken Doll!! <3

Petals said...

LOL Joe.

Joe in NY said...

Mikayla is in the majority, she should be safe...unless someone flips the script.

monty924 said...

Yeah, Petals. There are kids on this block but it's a treck up to the houses because most are on hills and they don't even bother. They just drive the kids into town where it is easier, I guess??!!!

The house where I lived in the mid 90's, I would run out of candy in an hour and send the ex for more. One year I counted 230 kids. Small enclosed community off a main state highway in the really rural area of our county and everyone took advantage of it, lol.

Petals said...

hi Tbc! Yeah, Ken Doll came thru (homina homina)

Speaking of which - I am sure that I read about another All-Star Survivor edition with
my #1 (Ozzie) & #2 (Joe) boyfriends participating? Anyone else hear anything like that?

Petals said...

Not Bret! I like him! Get rid of the chick, stop cop-hating! (that's the trouble with kids these days!)

monty924 said...

Mikayla is the only one of them that I care about staying. Seriously. She's a Survivor fan's dream. :)))

Becky said...

Petals, who is Dillweed?

Petals said...

MOnty the costumes were so adorable this year. I saw so many super heroes and princesses with adorable make-up & accessories. It was warm, so no one had to bundle up. It was a great night (until Little Orphan Annie-Cat showed up) LOL

monty924 said...

Now agree on the Cop thing. That's just a stupid reason unless they think it will turn out like what's his name from a few season's back or Derrick in BB. I don't know the context of why they are ragging on the Cops.

Petals said...

David is Dillweed. The one that weighs less than Michaela's hair.

Petals said...

oh NO! I knew they'd turn on Michaela! :( She will be an AllStar

monty924 said...

My nephew was adorable too. Didn't get to see any others but saw a ton of them on FB.

Nickelpeed said...

That's a lot Becky. Sending out prayers.

Becky said...

These guys don't have a brain cell one. Mich is the best one on the team!

Petals said...

This will be a travesty if they evict Michaela *smh*

SueGee said...

World Serious tied 1-1 btm 3rd

Petals said...

They are all scared of her, she showed her strength too soon. Being good is a double-edged sword, like with Ozzie - he had to win Immunity every week to stay safe.

tbc said...

Hi!! Late to the party tonight...

Ozzie and Joe. Heaven!!

monty924 said...

SueGee, I have the WS on the TV in the other room. It has been a total diversion and a nice one during this time. I honestly am rooting for both of them, lol. I'm a NL girl so I'd love to see the Cubs finally win it, and I have to root for my OHIO team so I'd love to see the Indians win it. Win-win either way for me. :)))

monty924 said...

Ut oh

Petals said...

I am leaning toward Cleveland b/c of Monty & because they did NOT have the degenerate Charlie Sheen sing the Anthem. GO TRIBE

Petals said...

oh no. This is soooooo wrong.

Petals said...

OMG!!!!!!!!!

monty924 said...

Dang... that was a fine TC there. #BLINDSIDE

Petals said...

#Blindsidehistory

tb said...

Oh wow!!

SueGee said...

Chicago area raised, I have to go with the Cubbies...

Joe in NY said...

wow, I almost expected her to take a swing when she went back for her shoes.

monty924 said...

Here comes the panic attack

Petals said...

and THAT is why she is scary.

Petals said...

me too Joe, seriously!

Petals said...

Jay peed in his pants a little bit when she came back for her shoes.



LOL

monty924 said...

LOL @ Petals, but I hear that he is there tonight to support the TRIBE. :)))
I just love this WS because I don't have a team to rag on or hate. It's all good this year!

Becky said...

Idiots!

Jackie, I hope you are at 100% soon. Take it easy and get well.

Joe in NY said...

I think it might have been a little early for that move. The millenials show surprisingly little teamwork for a generation raised on participation trophies. LOL. They turn on each other at the drop of a hat. I wonder if they think the old people are easy pickings in the individual game because they are soooo old.

monty924 said...

Charlie and his dad Martin Sheen are actually life long die-hard Cincinnati Reds fans, so that's a cool thing with me. MY TEAM :)))

tbc said...

National League. Cubs.

Thanks for the fun (but short for me) night. Until next week y'all. My Ken Doll lives to see another week....

SueGee said...

Night everyone!! Hope you feel better soon Jackie! I'm going for some soup tonight I think..

SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

Maybe that's the problem with Mille's Joe???

Petals said...

I hope that Jackie, SueG and Becky's friend are all feeling better soon.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm missing all of this. Crap!

Joe in NY said...

Now that's a typical millenial response. They are all destined to be rich and famous. Just ask them.

Petals said...

ditto Monty, re Milles! Easy come, easy go.

Nickelpeed said...

See you all next Wed. Hope all are feeling better, soon.

Jackie said...

Although I don't like returning players, Michaela is one I wouldn't mind seeing return on a future season.

Thanks for coming by!

Joe in NY said...

been a pretty decent season lately. I wasn't loving it until they split up the tribes. Now it's been pretty interesting every week.

See you next week.

Petals said...

Love you guys! Have a great week.

I will be asleep for BB (but my friend always updates me...)

xoxox

monty924 said...

Yep, Joe and others. Thank you Jackie for opening up the pool for all of us tonight. SueGee, get to feeling better too. See you all at the BBOTT post later.

Nickelpeed said...

Sad for Michaella.

Anonymous said...

6 - 3, top of the 7th
Go Cubs Go

Sharon N said...

They might regret eliminating the strongest player on their team quite so early.


Shannon said...

WOW I wouldn't be surprised if Ikabula does terrible from here on out, they eliminated their person who's personally won them several challenges.
