Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X Blog Party - November 23


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! Tonight is a two-hour show!

Since the BBOTT weekly show is starting at the same time as Survivor, I'm putting up a post for it that will be concurrent with this one. I'm not expecting the eviction there until after Survivor ends, so I will be here until the end of this show. I can't physically (or mentally) watch and post about two shows at one time! Gah! I'll have the feeds on minimized and low volume during this show. If I hear the eviction go down, I'll see what's up.

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

Survivors
Adam Klein - Brian, Kelsey NY, Sharon N
Bret LaBelle - Brandi Peralta, Judi Sweeney, Skyriverblue
Chris Hammons - Cheryl in NC, Jennasmom, Lanell from TN
David Wright - Buzzmaam, MikesGirl, Sharon C
Hannah Shapiro - David, meb, Terry is a Texan
Jay Starrett - Becky, Jackie, Shayne
Jessica Lewis - Cupcake, Jean, Petals
Ken McNickle - Dolores in Hollywood, Margo, Russ
Sunday Burquest - Brenda, Kristen from Ohio, SueGee
Will Wahl - Cheryl, Indiana Jane
Zeke Smith - Beachmom, monty924 , Glenn

Jury
Michelle Shubert
Taylor Lee Stocker

Survivor fans ready? 

Both Adam and Jay are scrambling to overcome the Taylor Food Fiasco from Tribal. Chris still wants to target Jessica instead of either of the boys.

Oh, geez. Hannah has a crush on Ken. I might have a panic attack over that.

Will, who's been a bit of connected to Jay at the hip, has decided to work with Zeke instead. He tells Zeke about Jay's idol. He thinks telling one individual will only help his game. The news of the idol spreads through camp like wildfire. Poor Will. 

Chris wants to vote out Jess. Zeke wants to flush the idol out from Jay. They will all soon have to eat one another to survive in the Donner Party. Um, well. Okay, not that far!

Reward - Floating pizza restaurant. It's an obstacle course and stacking blocks. It's a random draw for teams. One person won't play. David volunteers to sit out due to his poor swimming. The others encourage him to play.

It's a rock pick thing. Jay got the sit-out rock.  

Adam, Bret, Zeke, Hannah and Sunday win reward. At said reward, they received letters from home. Tears all about. Well, except maybe Bret.

David thinks that he, Jessica and Ken should target Bret, Sunday and Chris. David thinks Chris needs to go first. Jessica knows that Chris is her biggest nemesis, so she's fine with that. 

Immunity Challenge - Stand on a narrow beam balancing a statue on a long pole. As time passes, they'll need to move farther away from the statue. Hannah out first. Ken out. Sunday, Chris, Will, Jay and Bret out. Ants crawling on them are taking a toll. Adam out. Jessica out. Zeke out.

DAVID wins Immunity! 

At Tribal, everyone is 100% sure the vote will go the way they want. I'm not 100%.

Jay doesn't play his idol even though he kept saying he was going home during the Tribal Council.

The tally:
Chris, Jessica, Chris, Jessica, Chris, Jessica, Chris, Jessica, Chris, Chris.

Yay, Jessica stays and Chris goes! 

Zeke made things good with Bret. He needs Bret and Sunday to build up a charge against David and Company. Jay is a target. But David realizes he needs to get rid of Zeke. He mistakenly tells Bret.   

Hannah is torn between Zeke and David. Zeke told Adam and Hannah that David has another idol. The Reward is slithering through a course and solving a snake puzzle. Helicopter tour of the island and a picnic are Reward. One person will not have a chance to earn Reward, but automatically win a spot -- white rock. David got the white rock! 

Bret, Zeke and Sunday will go on Reward with David. Now, Adam is tempted to use his advantage, but doesn't. Bret and Zeke bond even more over many beers. Bret tells Zeke that he doesn't care if a guy is gay. Hmm. Their target is still David.

Hannah has made the decision to go with David. She tells him that Zeke told her and Adam that he has an idol. She also told him that Bret told Zeke he's (David) gunning for him (Zeke).

Immunity Challenge time! Stand behind a caged door, maneuver a handle through a maze and solve a slide puzzle.  

Jay gets through the handle maze first. Jay wins Immunity and no one else even got through the door!  

David gets Jessica and Ken to agree to vote for Zeke. Zeke puts Hannah on the spot. He realizes that Hannah isn't on his side. Uh-oh. Zeke thinks he should switch his target to Hannah. Hannah goes to Adam trying to get him to vote for Zeke. Adam doesn't really trust her. She's paranoid and thinks they're going to target her thus she would need David to save her with his idol. 

Tribal Council is uncomfortable. Lots of whispering. Hmm. No real trust showing.

David plays his idol. Adams tells them the whispers were to vote for Ken. He uses it to save Ken.

Zeke, Hannah, Zeke, Hannah, Zeke, Hannah, Zeke, Hannah, Zeke, Hannah.

It's a tie.

Re-tally:
Hannah, Zeke, Hannah, Zeke, Hannah, Zeke, Hannah, Zeke.

A double tie deadlock!  

Re-vote time. Nope! It's drawing for rocks if they don't make a unanimous decision.  

Ken, Hannah, Zeke and Jay are safe. The rest must draw rocks.

Jessica drew the black rock. She's going home. She's crushed. She leaves her early earned Legacy Advantage to Ken.

Hey, Jackie, Vincent, Penny, UJoe and others who arrive.

I don't understand why they dislike Jess.

Hi Monty and Joe.

Becky said...

Hey, Monty. Who all are cooking TG dinner?

Laurie said...

Wow! It's only 3 pm here in Oahu. We are enjoying our second week here and loving the time with our daughter. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

monty924 said...

Hi Becky and Laurie. Jealous Laurie... it's cold here. :)))

monty924 said...

I'm doing double dipping tonight watching BB too, so probably won't comment too much the first hour.

Joe in NY said...

They did a great job keeping that secret. LOL.

Becky said...

Doesn't take long for his mouth to run off.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky and Laurie....dang, I need to go to Oahu.

Nickelpeed said...

Spreads like wild fire. LOL.

Why Jess???

Becky said...

Hey, Laurie, how is the vacation? It has been in the hiigh 70's or low 80's here. Wonderful weather.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hello Everyone! Gobble...Gobble!!

Aloha Laurie!

SueGee said...

~~~~~~~~~SPLASH~~~~~~~~

Hi to Jackie & Vincent and all the Survivors!! Happy Turkey day to all. I'm just a little late - making some chili dogs for dinner tonight. We will be eating way too much tomorrow!

Double show/evictions tonight!! I'll make some popcorn or something for the second half!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Petals said...

Is it OK for me to want Zeke to fail, since he was such a snake & liar?

monty924 said...

Hey Ed, SueGee and Petals. That's my snake, Petals, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Kind of Rubik's Cube

Petals said...

oh no way :( booo

Petals said...

sorry, Monty, hehe

monty924 said...

LOL, opposites sides in BB and Survivor this season. :)))

Becky said...

Happy Turkey Day. Glad you told me it was a doubler elim. tonight. I would have checked out.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Homiee! Saturday high noon we take care of that team up north!! GO BUCKS!

Nickelpeed said...

I think Zeke is a snake, also. He and Dave are perfect for each other.

Petals said...

Brett, shut up! You've been drunk for 2 weeks!

Becky said...

I really don't care for Brett!

SueGee said...

BBOTT done next week? I have so lost interest and just read the blog...

I think they must be trying to get Survivor done before Christmas at this rate

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no, letters from home. I feel sorry for the others. Wow.

tbc said...

Hi! Happy Thanksgiving! I'm watching "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" with the family...

Nickelpeed said...

This makes me cry. Dang.

monty924 said...

That's right Ed. I've had my hate on ever since the finals seconds of the Michigan State game last Saturday. :))

monty924 said...

BBOTT done on December 1, SueGee

SueGee said...

Thanks Monty. I think that is when my CBS subscription ends too.

Ed in Ohio said...

Chris wants Jess gone......Jess wants Chris gone...might not be either??

Becky said...

There goes the chance to steal an advantage of someone's letter. I really don't think he will play that card since everyone knows about it. What do you think?

SueGee said...

I sure wish I had some pumpkin pie RIGHT NOW

monty924 said...

Probably won't be either, Ed.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm watching from my MILs and everyone is talking. So I'm missing just about everything that is said. Who are they planning to evict out?

Petals said...

he got his letter, what would be the benefit of stealing someone else's? I hope he doesn't use it. No point, imo.

Nickelpeed said...

I really do not want Chris, Matt or Jess to go. I'd rather see Dave or Zeke go.

Petals said...

lucky ants

Nickelpeed said...

Not good about the ants. Yikes.

Nickelpeed said...

LOL - Petals.

Petals said...

chris will be out soon.

Petals said...

oh nooo!

Nickelpeed said...

OOOps, I meant Ken, not Matt.

Ed in Ohio said...

Ken out early???

Petals said...

c'mon Jess!

Nickelpeed said...

They aren't worried, Jess needs to stick with it or she's gone.

Petals said...

DROP Zeke!

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Who would have thought Dave would last this long?

monty924 said...

Dillweed looking steady

monty924 said...

Bwahahaha

Petals said...

WOW!
Get ride of Zeke (sorry M)

Nickelpeed said...

Is this a 2 hour show?

tbc said...

Petals - yes, lucky ants!!

David's arm is so skinny!!

Petals said...

Dill is surprising.

Becky said...

Sorry, I know some of you think David is a dirt bag. He has made a remarkable progress since the quivering, fearful blob that arrived on the beach.

Joe in NY said...

don't we have an awful lot of people left for the end of November? It's double elimination today, but don't we need a couple more DE's?

SueGee said...

Yes Penny 2 hour show

monty924 said...

Yep, two hours tonight.

Petals said...

must go to bed, "cuz I'm old and give'out" (Carl, Sling Blade)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am VERY thankful for all of you <3 xoxox

Ed in Ohio said...

Happy Thanksgiving Petals!

Jackie said...

Although his self-deprecation and crying so much bug me, I've always liked David's drive. It would be fun if he won it all!

tbc said...

Good night, Petals!

Becky said...

Sweet dreams, Petals. Wish I hadn't taken my medication before the show came on.

SueGee said...

Not even 6pm here yet LOL too early for bed!

I count 4 more Wednesdays before Christmas, so maybe done by New Years?

SueGee said...

I agree Jackie. He was so not a threat he still might be under the radar to many

monty924 said...

So who's going to Ponderosa?

tbc said...

Work with David...

monty924 said...

Night, Petals and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! I still have a pie in the oven. :((

Ed in Ohio said...

Probably gonna' be Chris?

Nickelpeed said...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING PETALS!!!

Nickelpeed said...

I liked Chris, darn it! But he has been gunning toward Jessica for weeks.

monty924 said...

Sorry to see you go, Chris!

Becky said...

I'm not upset about Chris going.

monty924 said...

No surprise... Shelby is evicted from the BB house.

SueGee said...

Thx Monty

monty924 said...

Pies done. Who wants a piece of pumpkin pie? It's all virtual so pretend it's been done for a while and cooled down. :))

monty924 said...

The real pies not cooled down, but the virtual one is.

SueGee said...

Pass me a whole pie lol My absolute favorite and I have not had a slice yet this year

SueGee said...

I have plenty of whipped cream :o)

monty924 said...

You got it, SueGee. I only lave lite Cool Whip, lol. I have no idea why I bought lite because this is the one day a year that I feel no guilt over what I eat. :))

Ed in Ohio said...

First hour Chris vs Jess

2nd hour David vs Zeke?

Pumpkin Pie YUM! Break out the whipped cream

monty924 said...

Butt blur

tbc said...

OMG!!

monty924 said...

Yep homie. Definitely Dill vs Zeke. Petals went to bed too soon.

Ed in Ohio said...

What the?????????????????

Weird challenge!

Becky said...

Another new and good challenge.

monty924 said...

Now this will be an interesting reward.

Nickelpeed said...

Crap! Didn't they just go on a reward? Crap

Nickelpeed said...

I don't like Brent that much. He and Zeke are snakes.

Ed in Ohio said...

Guys are pounding those brews!!

monty924 said...

Nice bonding going on with Brett and Zeke whether you like them or not.

SueGee said...

Doesn't Adam's steal advantage have an expiration date?

Becky said...

Penny, I agree! Brent seems like the kind who give police a bad name.

tbc said...

Zeke's hair looks perfect!

monty924 said...

I suck at slide puzzles

monty924 said...

Jay smoked that

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow he killed that!

tbc said...

Impressive!! Well deserved.

Becky said...

That he did. I am so glad he managed it. He is my pool person.

monty924 said...

I think my snake might be gone

monty924 said...

David vs. Zeke, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Hannah's playing both sides....could come back to haunt her!

tbc said...

Whoa, what, Monty?

David said...

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. =)

I am late, as usual. lol Got to go back and read all the comments now.
Show is still in it's first hour here.

Nickelpeed said...

Is she serious?

monty924 said...

Could be Ed. I never have a clue anymore who they're going to vote out even when I pay full attention.

SueGee said...

And I'm sitting here trying to picture faces with some of the names LOL

monty924 said...

Hi David

monty924 said...

Hannah is running it more than Zeke. Vote her out!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Tie??

monty924 said...

ICK... I would have had a heart attack if that landed on me

SueGee said...

Why would anyone expect someone else to save them with their idol? Duh

monty924 said...

Jess always looks like a deer in headlights

Ed in Ohio said...

WHAT!

monty924 said...

TIE

Nickelpeed said...

Well, that sucks. He just wasted his idol. Did they just throw that in there? That was a lie.

tbc said...

What just happened?

monty924 said...

Go ROCKS, lol

SueGee said...

Two idols wasted?

Ed in Ohio said...

That doesn't seem fair!

monty924 said...

This is GREAT

SueGee said...

who is going to jump ship/

monty924 said...

We haven't seen this for a long time. It's the game and the rules.

Nickelpeed said...

This sucks. It's they're own fault. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Nickelpeed said...

Ooops, their own fault.

SueGee said...

rocks rock!

monty924 said...

I'm sorry, but she did it. Zeke told her they'd go to rocks.

Nickelpeed said...

It's who they wanted out in the first place. Kind of ironic.

Becky said...

What a shame!

Ed in Ohio said...

Man if that was me I'd be.....

tbc said...

Hannah should have been out!!

Nickelpeed said...

Just crazy.

Thank you for hosting us, Jackie. Will see everyone next week. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Becky said...

What an ending. Thanks for hosting, Jackie. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

SueGee said...

Next week will be good too!!

Ed in Ohio said...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

Thanks Jackie!

Monty.....GO BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

SueGee said...

Happy Thanksgiving!! See you next week

monty924 said...

WOW!!! I think we've only seen rocks once, maybe twice in the entire history. Poor Jessica, but I still have to say that was great if you love Survivor.

Jackie and everyone here, have a wonderful THANKSGIVING with family and friends and will see you all next week.

tbc said...

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Thanks for hosting, Jackie!

Jackie said...

Hasn't it been since Paschal in Season 4 that anyone actually got sent home with a rock draw? I know some went to Redemption Island on rock draws. But home?

Jackie said...

Happy Thanksgiving all!

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone and have a great week.

monty924 said...

Looked it up. It was until 2013 during Blood vs. Water and Katie, Ciera and Tyson drew rocks. I couldn't remember but thought we'd seen it a couple of times.

monty924 said...

*I mean after the first time when it was Vecepia's season.
