Survivor: Game Changers - March 22 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!

Last week's episode started out by buff dropping and the creation of a third tribe. This week we've been warned that only the one winning tribe will be safe from Tribal Council. Second place only counts in horseshoes, I guess!

Here's the updated pool from the best pool lifeguard ever, Lifeguard Laurie:

NUKU
Aubry Bracco - Ed in Ohio, meb
Jeff Varner - Donna in FL, Rochelle, DonnaNY
JT Thomas - Carol C, Petals
Malcolm Freberg - Judi Sweeney, Merrilee
Michaela Bradshaw - David, Jackie
Sandra Diaz-Twine - Jennasmom, SueGee

MANA
Brad Culpepper - Brian, Sharon N
Debbie Wanner - Glenn, tbc
Hali Ford - Buzzmaam, Nana in the NW
Sierra Thomas - Becky, monty924
Tai Trang - Cheryl in NC, Sharon C

TAHUA
Andrea Boehlke - Indiana Jane, ML
Cirie Fields - Leonia Hart, Terry is a Texan
Ozzy Lusth - KelseyNY, Margo, PDX Granny
Sarah Lacina - Delee, Rbennie
Troyzan Robertson - Donna in Alabama, Lifeguard Laurie
Zeke Smith - Janice from GA, Paula Bell

No more fire!
Ciera Eastin
Tony Vlachos
Caleb Reynolds
 
Survivor fans ready?

Hmm. Tai shows he's trustworthy to the others by talking about voting out his buddy Caleb? Hali could definitely use that against him in a court of law! Meanwhile, Debbie wants to target Hali as she thinks it's too soon to make Tai a target. Or, would that be a Taiget?

We're starting out with a Reward Challenge. Only two members of each tribe will complete. First two tribes to finish win reward. First, coffee makings and chocolate chip cookies. Second, thermos of coffee. First person has to carry a ball on a stick over obstacles, second throws sandbags. 

Tai is doing a horrible job in the first part of the challenge. 

Nuku wins first place! Brad Culpepper won second place for Mana after Tai's disappointing showing. It was Troyzan who lost it for Tahua.

Uh-oh. Ozzy seems to be getting a bit too confident. He thinks his providing the others make him invaluable. Then he catches a sting ray and makes them even happier with him.

Over on Nuku, Sandra is way over-confident. JT wants her out SO bad! Malcolm is willing to work with him toward that goal. But, will Sandra do that voodoo thing she seems to do and eork her mojo on them all? It wouldn't surprise me. However, any smart player should be targeting her. 

Immunity Challenge time! Blindfolded, tethered in pairs, caller, collect bags, table maze. Sandra and Troyzan sit out. Jeff tells them that both losing tribes go to Tribal Council. 

TAHUA wins Immunity!    

Ohhh! Only ONE person will go out tonight between the two tribes at Triabal. That changes the stakes a bit!   

Nuku is six versus the five on Mana. Most seem to think they need to stick together. JT wants to target Tai if that's the case. Sandra wants to take out Sierra. JT would still love to see Sandra go tonight. He trusts Brad. Over on Mana, they really want to target Sandra. Brad thinks if they go Sandra, JT will be voting her.  

Tai thinks he better go looking for an idol. He finds a clue and runs off looking for the idol. He's got it! (So, for the record, both Tai and Troyzan have idols.) Oh, geez. He runs and tells Brad, Debbie and Sierra! 

Time for Tribal Council. This should be interesting. 

Debbie mentions that JT used to be close to then and now he's in the spotlight. Jeff points out the other threats. Sandra says she knows she's not going home tonight. Hmm. Oh my. Hali hints Culpepper should be targeted.  They're all whispering. Sheesh.Whoa! JT tells Culpepper they're voting him out! Hali is reluctant to be the first vote. They're all still whispering.  

Tai gives his idol to Sierra.

The tally --
Sierra, Sierra, Sierra, Sierra, Sierra, Sierra, Malcolm, Malcolm, Malcolm.

ARGH! Malcolm is sent packing!

tbc said...

Ozzie!!

David said...

Hello Jackie, Petals, Tbc, and everyone who follows. =)

I brought roasted chickens. Tear off a hunk and eat it caveman style.

Petals said...

So I am harboring MUCH resentment for Sandra. Blech.

Petals said...

Hey David!!!

Petals said...

OZZIIIIEEEE!!! WoohoooO!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All! I missed last weeks party :(

So we have 3 tribes now.....& poor Caleb couldn't catch a break!

tbc said...

Tai!

tbc said...

Maybe this is the end for... Troyzan @@

Petals said...

Hi Ed!

Jackie said...

Hey, all! For some reason, I don't care much for Troyzan. It wouldn't bother me if his poor performance at Reward casts the evil eye on him.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Petals!

Ozzie...Ozzie...Ozzie!!!

Petals said...

OZZZIIIEEEEE

David said...

I liked Tai last time, not so much so far this time. Troyzan can go away. lol

Ed in Ohio said...

Did Troyzan find an idol last week?

Petals said...

yes Ed. He found a clue & got an idol :(

SueGee said...

~~~~~SPLASH~~~~~ Better late than never I always say!! Howdy to everyone!! Throw me a cold one and I will have some of the caveman style chicken!!


SueGee from the LeftCoast

Petals said...

Sandra is NO QUEEN! She's trash.

Petals said...

Hey SueG!

Petals said...

My boys Malcolm & JT will get rid of her, ASAP! Whooooo

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and everyone. Troyzan can go and take Sandra with him! How are the legs, Jackie?

tbc said...

Oh crap, I missed last week. Troyzan got an idol? Ugh!

Petals said...

Hey Becky!

SueGee said...

Just sayin' - TAR is going to be on from 10-11pm so instead of a pool party I propose a pajama party!!!

Petals said...

OF COURSE Sandra is sitting out! Lazy slag! Grrrr

Petals said...

Sounds fun Sue!

Ed in Ohio said...

Cool!! Dual tribes at Tribal tonite.

SueGee said...

I wonder if they will be at the tribal at the same time?

Becky said...

Good, maybe will get lucky and get both of them out.

tbc said...

I take no pleasure in the screaming competitions!

Petals said...

what color is Sandra's team?

Petals said...

I have screaming competitions every night at my house, LOL (funny, not funny)

Petals said...

AUUUGGHH!!!! I love Andrea! Ozzie is safe!

Petals said...

VOTE OUT SANDRA
VOTE OUT SANDRA
VOTE OUT SANDRA
VOTE OUT SANDRA

tbc said...

Wow, nice twist with two teams voting out one person!

Nickelpeed said...

Wish I was there. Working Cirque du Solei's Avitar. Kind of cool.

monty924 said...

Hi folks. Late to the party but I've been watching from the kitchen. Apple cobbler and vanilla bean ice cream for desert.

Ed in Ohio said...

Vote out someone form your own tribe or go after the other tribe? Interesting twist!

David said...

Good, they can take Sandra out. Did not like her in the previous 2 times, still don't lol

Becky said...

Wow! This is different. Did I hear correctly? Both teams will select just one person to evict? I will say one thing, Survivor is changing it up to make it still interesting. BTW, I brought several pizzas. I will take a Stella, Petals. I am pulling for Malcom, J.T. and OZZIE as final three. Hope that isn't a kiss of death.

Petals said...

MONTY!!!!!

Petals said...

*sliding a Stella to Becky*

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey Homiee!

SueGee said...

Thanks Monte!! Sounds yummy

Petals said...

"Gettin an a** beating?"

grrrrrrr

monty924 said...

Oh, boy!! Petals, you have to be loving this, LOL

Petals said...

C'mon my boys - vote-out Slagdra! She's a worthless, useless bully!

tbc said...

Vanilla bean is the best...

Petals said...

Monty - I'm worried. For some weird, twisted reason, she has won this not once, but twice.
I am praying the tribes go with their guts.

David said...

Uggg, expected more people. I just ate half a whole chicken by myself, and it was a big chicken. lol

Come on, get Sandra out. She is poison to the tribe my pool pick is on.

monty924 said...

Hey, Homie!! Petals knows I sort of like Sandra so we squabble about her, LOL

Petals said...

I wish the tribes had gotten to discuss the "let's eat the newborn baby goat" incident.

monty924 said...

Way to go, Tai!!

SueGee said...

She IS my pool pick LOL Liked her the first time around...second time a fluke, this time not so much!

Petals said...

Monty - even after the goat? *smh*

*finishing my Nth Stella*


GO TAI!

Ed in Ohio said...

How would Tai play his idol? For whom??

monty924 said...

If they're smart, they'll get rid of Sandra, but the edit suggests otherwise.

monty924 said...

No, I hated the goat thing, Petals. I just think she's a great player and her confessionals are funny to me. js :)) <3

Becky said...

David, was it the big chicken who who is on the news Foghorn Leghorn?

Petals said...

I just don't know if I can continue to watch if Slagdra stays...

Petals said...

Monty - do you like her now? I mean... really? :( *tears*

David said...

lol, Foghorn Leghorn. Haven't thought about that cartoon in a long time. I think he would be a bit tough to try to eat.

Petals said...

O. M. G.


monty924 said...

This is awesome... who will go??

Petals said...

Just that statement ALONE should make her the biggest target.

Ed in Ohio said...

Lot of whispering

monty924 said...

LMAO!!!! This is GREAT

Petals said...

*about to vomit from hate & stress*

monty924 said...

I say Tai doesn't use it

Petals said...

this is ridiculous!!!!



monty924 said...

And I was wrong, LOL

He wasted it

tbc said...

Wow.

monty924 said...

No, he didn't. Not Malcolm

Ed in Ohio said...

Boo!!

Petals said...

I can't watch again until Slagdra is gone. She upsets me too much. I will read about it,
but I cannot look at her nasty face and then try to sleep at night.
Everything about her opposes everything in my soul.

Becky said...

NOOOOOOOO!

SueGee said...

bizzar

Ed in Ohio said...

All that whispering and it ended up Sierra & Malcolm???????????

monty924 said...

HORRIBLE... that sucks

tbc said...

OMG. So upsetting

SueGee said...

bizarre even

Becky said...

Crap! Okay, I am gone. Thanks for getting rid of one of my favorites, creeps.

David said...

Dang. I know we don't know everything that goes on, but come on. Sandra should have been the obvious choice.

Jackie said...

Well, that wasn't what I expected.

Becky said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie. Enjoy your posts on Facebook. Nifgt all.

SueGee said...

funny how they always seem to vote out the physical ones so save their own weak asses...

monty924 said...

Well, this has been an interesting season so far. Never, never, ever trust the edit.

Petals, don't take the game so personally... then people wouldn't bother you so much. I don't have to like someone to appreciate the game they play. Love ya.

Thanks Jackie and everyone have a great week. Hopefully I will get here on time next week. Off to watch some baseball.

Ed in Ohio said...

Not the ending I saw coming. Oh well, onward & upward. Hang in there Petals!

Good Night All! Thanks Jackie!

Petals said...

love you all, but bye for now.

SueGee said...

See ya'll next time!

David said...

Thanks Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great week.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by! And, do remember ... it is just entertainment.

Carol C said...

Times like these I hate being on the West Coast. Always miss the party, but I enjoy reading all the comments.

Sharon N said...

Sorry to see Malcolm go. :( That was crazy... everyone racing around making a decision like that. It was "Sandra's plan" that they all target Sierra and, in all her wisdom, she pretty much guaranteed "they don't have an idol," so maybe Sandra will get the blame and they'll finally start to target her.

If they lose next time, it might cost Tai.

Nickelpeed said...

OMG! That was terrible! JT ruined it all. This falls on him. It does not fall on Sandra. JT should have never told Brad it was Sierra. Tai would have never given her the idol. Pretty bad. Crap. I hate to see Malcomb go. I'm sad. Brad and crew are playing a great game right now.

Nickelpeed said...

BTW, I think Sandra was on their list, but they changed it up at the very end. They decided to target the strongest player, that's why they got Malcolm. Dang, JT should not have told him who was targeted. They would have kept it Sandra. Crap.

Judi Sweeney said...

Noooooo not my Malcolm.... Ugh
