Survivor: Game Changers - April 19 Double 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!

I don't think anything could be so astounding as last week's Tribal Council. But tonight we see the reactions of Zeke's tribe and the merge will be on. We're in for two episodes in a row. Bring on the cyber-beverages!

Here's the updated pool! Lifeguard Laurie is back from Paradise --

MANA
Aubry Bracco - Ed in Ohio, meb
Brad Culpepper - Brian, Sharon N
Cirie Fields - Leonia Hart, Terry is a Texan
Hali Ford - Buzzmaam, Nana in the NW
Michaela Bradshaw - David, Jackie
Sierra Thomas - Becky, monty924
Troyzan Robertson - Donna in Alabama, Lifeguard Laurie

NUKU
Andrea Boehlke - Indiana Jane, ML
Debbie Wanner - Glenn, tbc
Ozzy Lusth - KelseyNY, Margo, PDX Granny
Sarah Lacina - Delee, Rbennie
Tai Trang - Cheryl in NC, Sharon C
Zeke Smith - Janice from GA, Paula Bell

No more fire!
Ciera Eastin
Tony Vlachos
Caleb Reynolds
Malcolm Freberg
JT Thomas 
Sandra Diaz-Twine
Jeff Varner

Survivor fans ready?

We see Varner getting voted out again although there never was a vote. Sarah and Tai are talking. Her eyes have been opened. She loves Zeke and thinks that, if anything, it makes him stronger. Zeke tells them he's touched by how everyone spoke up for him. But he still didn't want to be seen as anything other than Zeke.

Right to a challenge we go. A covered table, a table of food, hmm ...  Before they merge and feast, one person from each tribe must volunteer to not take part. Hmm. If two don't volunteer the merge will go on and all they'll get is a cracker and tea. Brad volunteers. Zeke thinks it's purely a game move. Tai volunteered for his tribe. Different reaction from a tribemate -- he's selfless.

The merge is on. Brad and Tai are off down the beach to get their yellow buffs.

Brad thinks he's taken over Tai's Caleb position. He starts talking strategy with Tai. 

Ick. As one of them said, "Debbie is going Debbie on us." She thinks it's the alcohol. Debbie told us she didn't drink any, it's strategy.  

Debbie plays nicey-nice with Brad. Zeke tells the Varner Tribal story. All seemed to support him as his own tribe did.

Uh-oh. The move is on to get Michaela (my blog pool pick) first. They all seem good with it. Ah, but Zeke wants to work with Cirie and Sarah. Should they try to recruit Michaela? 

A hen lays an egg on the roof of the shelter. "The laughs before the bloodbath." 

Hali wants to work with Michaela. Michaela thinks she needs to approach Cirie and needs people on her side. Cirie is giving her good advice.

Time for the first individual Immunity Challenge. Stand on toes with a block wedged between their heads and frame. Last blockhead wins! Heehee. I couldn't resist that.  

Hali, Troyzan, Zeke, out soon. Cirie out. Debbie out. Michaela out. This was all in the first five minutes. Ozzy out. Aubry out. Brad out. Sierra out. Tai and Andrea remain. Tai out! Andrea wins Immunity, the first woman to ever win this challenge!

Andrea thinks Hali might have an idol. She wants to flush it out -- leaning towards Michaela leaving.  They're telling Hali and Micahela that Zeke is the target because he has such a good backstory. Cirie is Cirie-ously trying to save Michaela. 

Tribal Council time. Hali tells them they can pat her down -- she doesn't have an idol. Hmm. Cirie votes Michaela to save them both.

The tally:
Zeke, Zeke, Michaela, Hali, Michaela, Hali, Michaela, Hali, Michaela, Hali, Hali, Hali ...

Hali is voted out.  She's the first member of the jury.

Cirie is ready for war. She, Zeke and Aubry want to target Brad and Sierra. Andrea also wants to get them out. Is it a coup? 

Zeke thinks that Andrea and Cirie are actually bigger threats in the game. Will he be a game changer? 

Reward Challenge -- Two teams of six -- two swim out, retrieve fish puzzle pieces, two hook them up and the other two put it together. Schoolyard pick. A day of luxury is the prize.

Andrea, Zeke, Debbie, Troyzan, Ozzy and Tai win Reward! 

Oh my, the Marshalls Spa is from Marshalls the store -- all kinds of products from Marshalls. Tai streaked. 

Zeke takes his Andrea target to Debbie and Tai. Debbie is skeptical. 

Immunity Challenge -- Hang onto a pole the longest you can. The classic wrap yourself around a pole -- Ozzy has won it the two times he did it. Cirie lost it before. It's new to the others.

Cirie out first. Brad is out. Aubry out. Debbie out. Zeke out. Sierra out. Troyzan out. Sierra out. 
Andrea, Michaela, Tai and Ozzy remain. 

Michaela drops saying Ozzy won't come down. He's told them that he plans on beating his own record. 

Andrea falls hard.  Ozzy is OUT!

Tai wins Immunity! It's like he was Tai-ed onto the pole! 

Zeke pushes his Andrea agenda to Sierra. She doesn't trust him. Andrea hears it and is now ticked at Zeke. Ozzy is with Cirie. Now they're all abuzz about voting out Zeke. Whoa! Debbie has started a blindside Ozzy movement.  

Tribal Council time. They talk about how the game seems higher stake and cagier this season.  

Debbie uses her Advantage of an extra vote. 

The tally --
Ozzy, Zeke, Sierra, Ozzy, Zeke, Ozzy, Zeke, Ozzy, Zeke, Ozzy, Ozzy, Ozzy 

Sorry, Petals. Ozzy is outsy.

Hey, Jackie and Vincent and others who arrive. Jackie, I am such a sacredly cat that an encounter like you had with the young man would make me wet my pants. But it sounds like you handled it well.

Becky said...

I am in awe of you!

Jackie said...

I don't scare easily.

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

tbc said...

Hi, everyone!! Got Pinot Grigio and spinach dip in a bread bowl with cut veggies! Enjoy!

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! Hope someone brought something good to eat 'cause I'm starving!!! Not cooking tonight so i may have to make a McDonald's run...

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Petals said...

~*~*~*~ SPLASH ~*~*~*~

Hello Ms Jackie! *scritcha-scritcha* to Vincent!

Whoohooooo! Last week was ONE. CRAZY. TRIBAL! All the fallout became National news!

I have Stella! Monty is bringing a cool new drink (I think!)
Also, I have sweet & sour buffalo wings.

XOXOXOX

SueGee said...

I forgot this is a double show...and they are doing the same on TAR tomorrow starting at 9pm.

Becky said...

Hey, Joe, tbc and others who arrive.

Petals said...

Hey Becky, TBC, BFJoeinNY and SueG!

Petals said...

I admire that Zeke didn't bring his "transism" to the game, but he's handled it so well.

Becky said...

Hey, Petals. Did you bring Stella?

Petals said...

Hi Ozzy *waving to my honey*

Joe in NY said...

Wow, that's cold.

SueGee said...

Petals - I saw your comment at the end of last week. I am the one watching ER. They have been in order and this week the second season ends and the third starts. Three shows a day have been a little much, but TG for dvrs

David said...

Hi everyone. =)

I brought BBQ ribs from a local mom & pop restaurant. Dig in.

SueGee, I left you a messege at the end of the TAR blog in case you missed it.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky, Jackie, Joe, tbc, SueGee and Petals... I have three pounds of sriracha shrimp and pitchers of Whipped Lightening (Watermelon Mash)!! Yum

monty924 said...

Hi David

Becky said...

Hey, David. I will have to tape AR. We have other plans.

Becky said...

Hey, Monty.

monty924 said...

Vodka, Watermelon vodka, orange juice, pineapple juice, cranberry juice and topped with Strawberry Colada Whipahol :))

Petals said...

YUM! Yay, Monty! I'd love to try one of those!

Petals said...

Sue - YAY! I was hoping you saw my msg. I am SO loving my ER fix. ^5

monty924 said...

Flies on the ham... oh goody

Petals said...

awwww Tai

SueGee said...

David - not sure they want my credit card for a free service??

Petals said...

I bet there is a tiny feast for Brad & Tai?

Nickelpeed said...

I'm still working, but I'm with you all in spirit. :-(

Petals said...

I've forgotten - who has idol(s)?

tbc said...

Eww

monty924 said...

Tai has two and Troy has one

Joe in NY said...

Debbie is such a nut case. I would love to see her in the real world. She can't possibly be that bizarre.

SueGee said...

And tonight FARGO is back!!!!!!!! Too much TV LOL When did I used to find time to work??

monty924 said...

hey Penny

Laurie said...

Hello everyone! Kudos to all of you for behaving without your Lifeguard last week. I was enjoying our daughters' beautiful wedding in Oahu and didn't even think about the show. I did get caught up yesterday. What a show!

David said...

No SueGee, don't give them anything. When I tried, it went right to the live feed. It is all what you click. I am used to bypassing that stuff for movies, etc. Let me look.

Becky said...

Deb hurts my eyes! But Ozzie is so cute that I will watch Him. Just looking Petals. I am old but not dead.

Petals said...

Hey Penny! Hi Dave :)

Ozzy was SO smart to not take that 'punishment'; he needs to network!

monty924 said...

I'll second that, Joe

Petals said...

oh grossssss...Debbie twerking? Is there a more frightening sight?

Becky said...

Penny, we miss you.

Petals said...

PUT THAT S*** AWAY!

monty924 said...

Laurie!!! Grab some shrimp and a drink!

monty924 said...

Since I missed the last one and a half pool parties, I'm happy we get to party for two hours tonight.

SueGee said...

David now it is working!! Survivor is on (and I do have the bandwidth)

Judi Sweeney said...

Hey EVERYONE!

Petals said...

Laurie!!!!! Hey girl :)

David said...

It went right to the live feed of survivor when I just now did it SueGee. Didn't have to click on anything. CBS Stream 1.

Petals said...

Hey Judi

Petals said...

Monty, Last week was SOO crazy, we really missed everyone sharing that nutty moment.

Petals said...

Gosh, there are so any floaters this season. I'd forgotten that Cieri is still there until tonight. And the other girl...with all the brown hair? Get rid of the floaters! Dead weight.

monty924 said...

Petals, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor after I watched last weeks tribal.

Petals said...

The only good thing about the merge is that my Ozzie can save himself, not rely on a tribe of back-stabbers.
Poor Mykaela, being targeted again.

ON my 5th Stella! LOL, it's been a DAY

David said...

Glad it works for you SueGee. =)

SueGee said...

I read that Varner lost his job after they saw the show last week

SueGee said...

I can't watch and chat here until I get my desktop booted up...I will try it tomorrow night.

Petals said...

Monty - OMG, me too! I wanted to go on & on about it with you, but it was a crazy week-end.
I mean, it was SHOCKING! Truly a moment to go down in Survivor History.

Dalton Ross from EWeekly has a radio show, weekdays, and he does all the Survivor stuff. He was taking calls from the audience & stuff, and the world was just stunned.

I'm from the intolerant Right, the Midwest Bible belt, but I felt for Zeke. But I truly think Varner didn't have forethought and malice in his heart when he said that. Plus, I've learned that about 80minutes of tribal happened before the "outing", and that it wasn't just out of the blue; there was a lead-up that was edited out.
In short: I forgive Varner, and I thank him for an amazing Survivor moment.

tbc said...

Petals, want some wine to compliment that Stella?

Petals said...

Aww, Sue. I wish you were in our time zone

Becky said...

Hey, Laurie and Judi. Penny will you miss both shows tonight?

Petals said...

TBC - sure! I have 2 hands :) hehe

Petals said...

Hali! She is dead weight. And that tall blonde, too. Floaters.

monty924 said...

Good advice from Cirie

monty924 said...

Now, now, Petals, lol. That tall blonde is my pool girl :)))

Becky said...

I loved the way the rest of the tribe came down on Varner but I hate he lost his job over it.

tbc said...

My pool girl twerked tonight. My eyes are still watering....

Judi Sweeney said...

Crazy!!! They need to get rid of dead weight!

monty924 said...

I agree, Becky. I don't think anyone should lose their job over a reality TV show. They do sign up for it, but what they do there and what they do in the 'regular' life should be kept apart.

Petals said...

c'mon Ozzie - you got this!

Petals said...

sorry, friend.

SueGee said...

My friend that was on Survivor (twice) said that after they cast their votes, they had to sit and wait for the producers to put the votes into the order they wanted Jeff to read them, and sometimes it took an hour or more! And those TC discussions are very heavily edited.

Judi Sweeney said...

LOL@tbc

Petals said...

hang in there Ozz!

Petals said...

good try, Micha!

monty924 said...

Ut oh

Petals said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

oh honey.

Petals said...

I'd root for Tai, but he went after my man...

monty924 said...

Way to go, Andrea

Petals said...

WOOOOO

WTG Andrea!

tbc said...

Who is Andrea again...

Petals said...

I hate it for Michaela, but I sure hope she goes before my l♥ve.

monty924 said...

It looks like the tribe is split with Ozzy, Brad, Troy as the alpha dogs on one side, and Cirie, Andrea, Zeke and now Micheala on the other. This could be interesting.

SueGee said...

They need to get the floaters out, but it is always about getting the power players out first. JMHO

Petals said...

LOL Tbc

David said...

Nooo, not Michaela, she is my pool pick. Already out of the TAR pool, not both pools in a week. lol

Becky said...

tbc, the one in the itsy bitsy bikini! I wish I had a body like that. I would flaunt it too.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Everybody! Jumpin' in late.....just got home.

Had dinner out with my son & his family tonight, celebrating a big promotion he received at work today.

Petals said...

hey Ed!!

tbc said...

Lol, Becky! I know.

Petals said...

Get rid of Cirie - biggest dead weight.

Petals said...

Congrats Ed!

****cheers to Ed's promotion ****

tbc said...

After last tribal, voting out Zeke? Is that even a believable story?

David said...

Congrats to your son Ed. =)

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey Petals, Thanks! My son's promotion.

monty924 said...

Hey homie... that's awesome and now you can celebrate it again with us. Tell him your pool peeps said congrats.

Petals said...

oh, sorry. Still cool, and still congrats!

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks David & Monty!

SueGee said...

Congrats to your son Ed!!

Becky said...

Hey, Ed. I am not crazy about sheriff tall blond.

Ed in Ohio said...

When I came in during the immunity challenge I saw someone's foot with a heart tatto.......was that Ozzy?

Petals said...

More twister weather expected tonight in KCMO area; heading East. Be careful, Monty, Ed, Dave & Jackie.

monty924 said...

I know, Petals. You stay safe tonight and are forecast for tomorrow isn't good. :(((

Petals said...

Ozzie has a tree on one foot, all the way to his knee, on one foot.

monty924 said...

*our

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks SueGee & Becky! He worked very hard for this position and was finally rewarded.

tbc said...

Why is the sheriff tall blond gave perfect nails and eyebrows? How does that happen in the jungle?

tbc said...

*have not gave

monty924 said...

That was Sierra, Ed (I think)

Petals said...

TBC - Waxed brows, and semi-perm dye. And Gel nails last a long time?

SueGee said...

Cirie has always been a player behind a lot of moves!

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Homie. It was the first thing I saw when I turned on the TV

Petals said...

Did she just offer to strip?

David said...

LOL, thanks Petals, but I live where all this bad weather comes from, in the Mountain time zone. Storms roll out of the rockies and create havoc in the plains.

Petals said...

The tribals this season have been awesome! Unprecedented, the crazy stuff that has happened each week.

monty924 said...

Cirie doesn't mess aroung, LOL!!

Petals said...

WOHOOOOOOOO!!!! YES!!


Cuttin off the dead weight!

*cheers*

Judi Sweeney said...

Your right Petals.... Tribal councils have been so entertaining

Ed in Ohio said...

There went the 'eye candy'

Petals said...

Oh, Micaela - you are being snookered!

monty924 said...

I had Hali in the pool the first time she played. She was pretty impressive this time.

Petals said...

Get rid of Cirie, grrrr.

monty924 said...

LOL, they all think they're the new sheriff in town

Judi Sweeney said...

Wow.... That was wild. Bye, bye Hali..,

Joe in NY said...

They could have done me a favor and strip searched Hali before they booted her. :)

Petals said...

whew! Love that my bf isn't on the chopping block this week.


Petals said...

Petals said...

LOL Joe, down boy xoxo

monty924 said...

Lol, Joe. That seems to be the consensus for the males here :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

I do have to agree with Joe! ;)

David said...

I will also have to agree with Joe. =)

Ed in Ohio said...

Kudos to Jackie for her live updates! During the commercials I flip back to the main page to read her take.

Petals said...

bwhahaha! I love the healthy men in our pool *sigh*

Petals said...

*cheers to Jackie*

Petals said...

c'mon OZZIE!

tbc said...

Loving these competitions and tribals this season. I'm glued to the tv!!

Petals said...

GO OZZZZZZ

Petals said...

me too TBC!

David said...

AAAAAAA, my eye's. Debbie just twerked here. I don't know if I can un-see that. (I am an hour behind you all)

tbc said...

OMG

monty924 said...

Yay, Petals. Your boy gets reward :))

Petals said...

wooohoooooo

OZZIE is safe!

Sharon N said...

Hi everyone...
Sorry, got involved in the Stanley playoffs and forgot it was Survivor time!!
Last week's show was something else. Varner deserved to go.

So Hali gone. Who will be next?
Anyone but Ozzi, please.

tbc said...

David, I am still seeing replay in my head! It may lead to nightmares tonight.

Petals said...

He'll be fresh, clean and well-fed for me. MMmmmm *giddy giggle*

Petals said...

Hi Sharon!

Becky said...

tbc and David, you two have me giggling.

Petals said...

Cirie - please be successful at leaving this show, OK?

Petals said...

"EXpecially"? Learn the words, chick.

monty924 said...

Go Tai!!! Love it

Petals said...

*mentally scrubbing Ozzie's back* mmmmm



*sigh*

Ed in Ohio said...

More eye 'hurt'!

tbc said...

Lol. Thank God we didn't see Troyzan...

David said...

I would love to see Ciera go. She seems worthless to me. No help at all except to cause trouble.

Sharon N said...

Hey Petals! :)

Brad is my pool pick, but I still like Ozzie.
I can't help but like Tai also.

Becky said...

So, I am so slow. It dawned on me that the tall blond sheriff is my pool person! LOL at myself.

monty924 said...

Aw, Man. You're all coming down on Cirie now. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cirie. I think she won of those best players who have never won the game. Kind of like Ozzie if you think about it.

monty924 said...

Yes, Becky. She's our pool girl :)))

Becky said...

Sharon, I like both of those guys too.

tbc said...

Lol, Becky!!

Petals said...

Sorry Monty, I really don't like Cirie

Jackie said...

I like Cirie, too.

Becky said...

Wow! The past hour and a half raced by.

David said...

LOL Monty. Cirie* (who I meant) is still doing more than I would be able to do. Just compared to everyone else there she does nothing but stir up trouble.

monty924 said...

ozzie and Tai should do well here

Petals said...

OH no. This Tai's challenge. :( Oh no. Hang on Ozzie - pretend that pole is ME!

Ed in Ohio said...

Tai or one of the girls????

Becky said...

Tai or Ozzy should win this.

monty924 said...

But David... that's her genius in this game :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

LOL Petals!!

tbc said...

Lol, Petals!!

Becky said...

Petals, you are incorrigible. Please excuse my spelling.

tbc said...

Tai looks like a koala

Petals said...

sorry, didn't mean to be un-ladylike.

GO OZZZZZZZZZbaby

monty924 said...

Come on Ozz

monty924 said...

Wow... she almost knocked herself out there. I thought her head was going to hit the pole

Ed in Ohio said...

1 hour!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!

Joe in NY said...

Have either one of those two guys even moved. LOL

Petals said...

OMG! This is terrible!

Hold on my love!

monty924 said...

Couple of monkeys hanging out in the trees.... true Jeff

tbc said...

Monty, I was a little worried for her.

Ed in Ohio said...

Tai has less weight to support

monty924 said...

WOW!!!! This could be bad, Petals :(((

Petals said...

Tai is a spider monkey. :(

Becky said...

I would love to see those two as the final two.

Petals said...

That's OK baby

Petals said...

me too Becky

Becky said...

Petals, just keep on being your adorable self. You make me laugh and I love to laugh.

Ed in Ohio said...

LOL Jackie said "like he was Tai-ed to the pole"

Becky said...

My hubby made banana muffins and brought me two with a glass of milk. He's a keeper.

Becky said...

Oh, Jackie, put a mark on the wall!

tbc said...

That was epic though. So many epic moments this season!!

Petals said...

oh, anybodybutOzzie, please!

(you guys remember the dude in the pool who's name was AnybodybutJanelle? LOL)

monty924 said...

Oh, Debbie put Ozzy's name out there

Petals said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Ed in Ohio said...

Uh Oh Petals her comes Debbie

tbc said...

C'mon are you serious?!?

Joe in NY said...

Is it too late to strip search Hali?

Becky said...

NO!!!! Not Ozzie. And Tai has the neckless.

Petals said...

The bottom line is: Ozzie & Debbie both go home, all alone in their bedroom(s) and look in the mirror - Ozzie sees OZZIE. What does Debbie see? LMAO!! Who wins?

SueGee said...

I wish someone had the balls to call Debbie out LOL
