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:
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
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.
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.
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.
