Survivor: Game Changers - March 15 Episode Blog Party


Everybody ready? Got your snacks? Got your tasty adult beverages? As the show airs here on the east coast, I'll be live-blogging with all the major happenings. Refresh the page to see the latest news! But, as always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!


Due to the two-hour season premiere last week, we lost two castaways, not just one. But, as Lifeguard Laurie promised ... the first week was free and those who had either Tony or Ciera have been reassigned a new castaway!

Here's the updated pool:

NUKU

Brad Culpepper - Brian, Sharon N
Cirie Fields - Leonia Hart, Terry is a Texan
Debbie Wanner - Glenn, tbc

No more fire!
 Ciera Eastin 
Tony Vlachos

Survivor fans ready? 

Oh my. We're starting out with the "drop your buffs." It's a random pick from a plate. It's three tribes instead of two. Anyone choosing a green buff is on the new tribe.

I'm probably not going to get the tribe division down right now. Caleb and Tai are reunited. Malcolm is in heaven now that he's ended up in Nuku. JT is worried because he's not only a previous winner, but he's the only member of his previous tribe in his new one. He's looking for an idol and Varner is already scheming against him. 

On his new tribe, Brad thinks that either Hali or Caleb should go. Brad thinks Debbie is more loyal. Hmm. Tai wants Caleb to stay and told him that they're talking either him or Hali. 

Cirie and Ozzy think they should work together. It sounds like Troyzan will be the biggest target on that tribe. Meanwhile, Troyzan is suspicious of them and looks for an idol. He finds a clue which tells him the idol can be retrieved at the next immunity challenge. (Wouldn't it be cool if someone else found it and snagged it without a clue?)

Sandra wants to eat one of the goats wandering nearby the camp. JT is willing to catch one to gain her favor. Oh, gee. They catch one -- a baby. But the guys realize it's a mama goat and baby, the only reason they caught it was because it wouldn't leave the babies. Sandra is deadset on killing one. None of the guys want to kill a goat. They decide on eating the chickens.

Time for the Immunity Challenge! The "hidden in plain sight" idol is taped right in plain sight to a table. Three tied together, obstacle course, bucket of water, gate, puzzle. Reward is tarp, first tribe gets choice of comfort for body or taste buds. Second tribe to finish gets the leftover choice. Troyzan has to wait until after it's over because he's assigned to the untying of knots. 

NUKU wins first place! Sandra, Malcolm and JT are on that one. The new tribe, Tahua (sp?) got second. Troyzan retrieved his idol.  They ended up with the spices.

Debbie, Caleb, Hali, Tai, Brad and ??? are on the new losing tribe. I believe that's Sierra on there. Debbie and Tai are talking about Hali going. Yes, it is Sierra. Brad thinks, to stay in good graces, Tai needs to make the decision to take out Caleb and tries to work him. 

Tribal Council time! Jeff asks his Probsting questions and it still seems between Caleb and Hali.She seems to plead her case to stay better.

The tally:
Caleb, Hali, Caleb, Caleb, Caleb ... he's OUT! 

Brad was able to convince Tai. It looks like the only one who voted for Hali was Caleb. 

Next week both losing tribes at Immunity will go to Tribal. 

Caleb still loves Tai. Ain't that sweet?

SueGee said...

It was supposed to start raining again tonight but I bought ribs yesterday and I'm cooking them!!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

monty924 said...

Caleb and Tai together again, lol. I love it!!

David said...

I'm here, just slacking off as usual. =)

Hello everyone. I see Jackie got thrown on the pool floatie as me after being ousted last week. Is that a good or bad thing? lol

SueGee said...

The hostess needs to float longer LOL

monty924 said...

Hi Joe, hey David... quiet around here tonight.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Vincent, Monty, SueG. Sorry I didn't bring anything. I have felt a little off for several days.

SueGee said...

Two weeks until TAR starts. Its going to be on Thursdays - bad night for Jackie???

David said...

Hope you feel Better Becky. =)

monty924 said...

Which in Survivor terms, means JT is safe :)))

Joe in NY said...

That's funny. Not sure it's going to help JT any, but it is hysterical.

Becky said...

Hey. Joe, David and any others who arrive.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky

Joe in NY said...

After last week's crowded pool party, I'm surprised there's not more people here.

Becky said...

Thank you, David.

SueGee said...

Hope you are feeling better soon Becky!

monty924 said...

Thursday is a bad night for me. I'll have to follow along after the show ends.

Jackie said...

TAR on Thursdays is fine for me -- will probably do better than Fridays!
In the pool I've been reassigned Michaela. I like her. I just hope she can keep herself under control.

SueGee said...

I know where I can buy a whole, butchered goat...should we have one next week on the BBQ?

David said...

Is TAR really going to be on Thursday's?? Well, I guess that is better than Friday's but I still think they should put it on after Survivor. =)

SueGee said...

I liked it on Sunday or right after Survivor too

monty924 said...

Hahaha, he found something.

monty924 said...

I know, Joe. Very quiet for this place tonight. Oh well, the ones here are enjoying it.

Becky said...

Thank you, SueG. I am just going to lurk, watch and read tonight.

monty924 said...

#savethegoat

monty924 said...

I hate this

monty924 said...

Thank you!!

Joe in NY said...

There is kind of a double standard there with the goats. I mean, the chickens would be moms also...if YOU HADN'T EATEN THEIR BABIES ALREADY!!! LOL

Becky said...

I don't think I like Queen Sandra very much.

Jackie said...

Both Petals and Penny said last week they wouldn't be here this week.

monty924 said...

LOL, Joe. I just couldn't stand to see them eat a mommy goat and/or her baby.

Jackie said...

They all should be thinking about targeting Sandra!

monty924 said...

Yes, Jackie. I have no idea why they want to keep a two time winner around. She sucks at challenges but had one of the best games around. Anyone but me.

SueGee said...

She's my girl this time around - but not a favorite anymore. I liked her back when she and Rupert were acting devious LOL

David said...

Maybe they want to keep Sandra around as a goat, forgive the pun, as they think no one will give her the money a third time.

Becky said...

I agree, Jackie.

monty924 said...

Troyzan, lol

monty924 said...

Hoping it isn't Caleb. Get rid of Debby

monty924 said...

*Debbie
She annoyed me last time and she's just as annoying this time around

monty924 said...

Oh no!

David said...

Tai is not as gullible as he seems. Brad may be digging his own grave trying to work Tai.

Laurie said...

This is Lifeguard Laurie. You can't see me because I built a spy shack!

monty924 said...

FIngers crossed, Hali goes

monty924 said...

I spy Laurie :))

David said...

LOL Laurie. =)

monty924 said...

Boooo!!!!!!!!!!

Laurie said...

Shhh ... Monty, loose lips sink ships!

monty924 said...

Just for that, I want to see my gal Sierra hook up with Hali and Debbie (blech) and run Culpepper and Tai off the island.

monty924 said...

Lol, Laurie

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, that tribe just lost a challenge. There's 17 people left. SEVENTEEN. And you take out Caleb because of your END game? You need to make it to the end. How is your tribe stronger today than yesterday?

The other thing with Caleb is he doesn't have any guile. Hailey does.

David said...

Don't know why they targeted Caleb. He was not really a game changer and didn't really get a chance to play either time. Not a smart move.

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great week.

Joe in NY said...

Agree, DAvid.

SueGee said...

Boooooooooo He was someone that really deserved a second chance

Becky said...

This tribe is not very smart. They got rid of a hard, strong worker and kept the wrong one. They deserve to be voted out.

I will watch and see if Tai flipped on Caleb. If he did I hope that the tribe with the chickens show up wearing feathers! Just saw it. Walk in clucking, gang.

Jackie, and gang, see you next week.

monty924 said...

Agree Joe and David. Well, off to finish laundry and stuff. Everyone have a great rest of the week and weekend.

Thanks Jackie

Jackie said...

Ohh ... I hope JT fares better going after Sandra than Tony did!

Thanks for coming by!

Petals said...

I am SO SAD that I missed the party: I had "real life" to deal with.
A) Roger Federer won, so YAY
B) I caught my 'husband' cheating on my with a chick that has even
less teeth than HE has, LOL!
C) OZZY is safe on Survivor! whoooooo

I'm sad that any chickens or baby goats may have died. :(

XOXOX

Nickelpeed said...

Crap, I'm not happy they got rid of Caleb so fast. They do not have very many strong people on this tribe. Caleb and Brad are the only 2 strong men. So, they get rid of Caleb, now it leaves only Brad as the strong person. Caleb had to practically drag Tai and Debbie to even get the task done. Then Hali and Brad helped lose the challenge. I'm bummed. They better hope they do not have too many physical challenges. Just saying. :'(

I won't be here again next week. I work. Dang.

Carol C said...

Caleb would have helped them in challenges - and he seemed to be a really nice guy. Sorry to see him go.

tbc said...

So sorry I missed the pool party. I postpone my Book Club meeting due to Stella!

It looks like a fun night. See you all next week.
