Survivor: Game Changers - May 10 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!

Here's the updated pool from the Lovable Lifeguard Laurie:
 
Andrea Boehlke - Indiana Jane, ML
Aubry Bracco - Ed in Ohio, meb
Brad Culpepper - Brian, Sharon N
Cirie Fields - Leonia Hart, Terry is a Texan
Michaela Bradshaw - David, Jackie
Sarah Lacina - Delee, Rbennie
Sierra Thomas - Becky, monty924
Tai Trang - Cheryl in NC, Sharon C
Troyzan Robertson - Donna in Alabama, Lifeguard Laurie

JURY
Hali Ford
Ozzy Lust
Debbie Wanner
Zeke Smith

Survivor fans ready?

After his allies voted against him, Tai is worried. Brad, Sierra and Tai are certainly on the list for next out at this point. Sierra wants to mend fences with Sarah. So, she tells her of her Legacy Advantage. She tells her that if she goes, she will will it to her. She will do whatever is needed. So, it looks like Brad will be the main target.

But we'll see how that all works out. 

It's time for the Reward Challenge. Winners will have an American barbecue and it's tearjerker time -- they are playing for their loved ones. Sarah immediately bursts into tears.Tethered together groups of three, race obstacles, keys, sandbags, knock down articles. The respective loved ones will go with the winning teams.

Brad, Aubry and Andrea win. They can choose one player abd loved one to join them. They choose Cirie and her son. One more ... Sarah and her husband. 

Michaela thinks it's time she works with Tai -- after all, her "friends" didn't pick her to spend time with her Mom. And Sierra wants to bring Tai back into the fold along with perhaps Michaela. An oust Andrea plan is now afoot. 

Immunity is once again up for grabs. Balance on a narrow perch while balancing a buoy between two handles. The handles are small poles, they have to hold with the pokey ends. Aubry out. Sierra out. Andrea, Sarah out. Cirie out. Troyzan out. Michaela out. It's between Brad and Tai. Tai out. Brad Culpepper wins Immunity!

Welp, Brad won't go home tonight!

The names being tossed around are Sierra and Andrea. Tai and Michaela are sought after by both camps. Sarah wants Sierra voted out due to the Legacy Advantage. She tells Michaela about the advantage, but leaves out the fact that Sierra plans to will it to her. 

Tribal Council time is here. No fireworks this week.

The tally:
Sierra, Andrea, Sierra, Andrea, Andrea, Sierra, Sierra, Sierra.

Ah, so Sarah will get the Legacy Advantage.

Hi Ms Jackie, Vincent & Everyone!

I have LOT of leftover Olive Garden breaksticks (lol) and
frozen banana daquiri!
And Stella, natch.

Survivors Ready?!?!?

Petals said...

I am rooting for Makayla (I never spell her name correctly!)

Petals said...

Poor Tai.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie and Petals; and all who follows! Thank you, Jackie for giving us a place to go!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Tai is so wishy washy though. He changes his mind all the time.

Petals said...

Hey Penny!

Jackie said...

Hi, there. Actually, Michaela is easy to spell. It's as if her parents wanted a son named Michael, she came along and they added the "a" at the end!

Nickelpeed said...

Forgot to say hi to Vincent!! Hi Vincent! I'll let Jackie rub your ears for me!

Petals said...

Thanks J. I see so many diff spellings of it, I often get it wrong. *sigh*

Oh, this is always the tear-jerker episode.

SueGee said...

~~~~~SPLASH~~~~~ Imade it!! Howdy everyone...I almost forgot that it was time for the show!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Joe in NY said...

I usually dislike this blatant manipulation.

SueGee said...

I have some IPA infused Brats on the grill - making my stomach growl just talking about them

Petals said...

*passing Kleenex around*

Nickelpeed said...

My gosh, we're trying to get my MIL's medicare supplement fixed; and my head is spinning. Apparently her insurance company dropped her as of Dec. 31; and never knew until she went to the doctor's (which is only about 3 times a year). Talking to insurance companies and medicare is like pulling teeth!!!

Laurie said...

Hello from the west coast. Remember, the Lifeguard is always watching poolside antics and shenanigans!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie Mr. V, Petals (pass me a Stella, please), Penny and other late arrivers.

Becky said...

Hey, Laurie.

Nickelpeed said...

I know, all of these family member meets are tear jerkers.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky!! And, Laurie!!

Petals said...

Hey Bex, Hey Lifeguard Laurie!

*sliding a cool Stella to Becky*

tbc said...

Hi all!! I've got wine again tonight. Enjoy!

Petals said...

wow - Tai is a cougar!

Petals said...

hey TBC!

Becky said...

Penny, was your father in the military service? Hey, Joe. I do not feel sorry for Tai. He would sell his on mother out.

Becky said...

Hey, tbc. How is your son?

Joe in NY said...

Every comment from Jeff was "I've never seen..." brother/husband/son "...who were so close"

Nickelpeed said...

No, he wasn't, Becky. Only side of my family who was military, were my mom's side. My brother and I are the only ones who went in to the military in my immediate family.

Who do we want to win???

Petals said...

Hi JOE!!! xoxxox

Nickelpeed said...

Wow Andrea really wants this.

tbc said...

Becky, he's doing really well. He's next to me right now eating dinner. He's flying around in those crutches!! Thank you for asking.

Nickelpeed said...

Poor kid, tcb. Crutches are a pain.

Petals said...

this is the hardest part.

Nickelpeed said...

Really didn't want to see Culpepper win. But feel bad for Michaela.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know, Andrea, Michaela could very well go against you. She's always left out.

tbc said...

Nickelpeed, knee surgery. Torn meniscus. He's 17. Crutches for a couple of weeks...

Petals said...

This is not the loved one ep, more like Sophie's Choice!

Becky said...

Call USAA and see if she can qualify under you or your brother for a Medicare Supplement. All of our insurance is through them. Terrific insurance.

Becky said...

I hated to hear about him having surgery, tbc. But he will bounce back. I am having to go to PT for a strained tendon in my knee. I could barely walk last week.

I am not crazy about Culpepper.

Becky said...

Don't trust Tai! He will slit your throat!

Petals said...

Roger Federer recovered from the same surgery and WON 3 tournaments in a row 6 mths later! Rest, rest, rest is all it took. Well, rest... and being ROGER FEDERER. lol

Petals said...

I've forgotten there is another Andrea there. She blends in with the scenery or something.

Becky said...

I like Michaela for some reason. She needs to hide her emotions.

Nickelpeed said...

Michaela and Tai are flip floppers. Don't know if I'd trust them. Them wanting to vote Andrea is not a surprise. They've been targeting her forever.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree Becky. Michaela needs t hid her emotions. She lets them take over too much. I just feel badly for her.

Becky said...

Petals, are there two Andrea's? I know the blond one. Who is the other?

tbc said...

Petals, that is awesome. My son is a karate kid, and loves it. 3 months no activities. He'll rebuild. I know he will

Petals said...

Becky - lol. The one with dark hair & glasses. (I think?) Like I said - scenery.

Petals said...

there, Becky - the 2 andreas are out.

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, we do not have USAA. Her problem right now is it is out of open enrollment and there is a penalty. It won't cover everything. But she can change her policy during open enrollment.

Petals said...

oops - nope, I was wrong. See? 2 blonde andreas.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, Andrea will go home tonight.

Nickelpeed said...

Go Michaela.

Nickelpeed said...

JEFF!!! SHUT UP!!!

Nickelpeed said...

The 2 I didn't want to win, are the last 2. Dang.

Becky said...

I didn't want the last two in the running. I too was pulling for Michaela.

Petals said...

which andrea?

Petals said...

I mean, which is the target?

Petals said...

I really don't like Sarah. Didn't when she first played, still don't.

Petals said...

Aubrey! She is the one who I keep forgetting is even there. LOL

Becky said...

Andrea is the bigger threat. Sara is being ugly. I don't think I like her very much. Betrayal is the main reason I couldn't play Survivor. That and I would suck at physical challenges! LOL

Petals said...

DDDAAAAAMMMNNNN - Ozzie looks soooo good tonight.

Petals said...

*still reeling from how good Ozzie looks*

tbc said...

Ozzie always looks good....

Joe in NY said...

At some point, Tai could use one of his idols to curry favor and help his numbers.

Nickelpeed said...

I think Andrea is gone. This is the best she's ever played, really.

Becky said...

Big mistake!

Nickelpeed said...

I wouldn't be bad at challenges, but I don't think I'd get a long with everyone. LOL

Joe in NY said...

That might have been a mistake. We'll see

Becky said...

Sucker!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

I am shocked. I wonder who voted for who.

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, why wouldn't Sierra will the legacy to Culpepper. They seemed closer longer than she and Sarah.

Becky said...

She stabbed you in the back!

Petals said...

Yikes, I hope Sarah loses. grrr.

Petals said...

Sold her out, then voted her out.

Joe in NY said...

Well, at least we know what one of the questions will be a the reunion show: "Sierra, how do you feel about being completely suckered by Sarah?" LOL. Total "ME" move by Sarah. Andrea was all but gone - which would have been in the interest of "WE" - but Sarah flipped the script for "ME"...and the dumb "WE" went along with it.

And, interestingly, the whole reason for wanting to get rid of Sierra or Culpepper was to break up the couple. But we just learned how NOT close they were. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you, Jackie. Really appreciate it. Won't be here tomorrow night, but will be here next week for Survivor! Can't wait Have a great week.

Petals said...

rewound and watching Ozzie again.

monty924 said...

Yikes, I'm out of the pool. With a lot going on, I totally forgot about Survivor tonight. Now I have to watch it back. Thankfully, I have it taped. ugh

tbc said...

Have a great night everyone! Thank you for concern for my son... very appreciated.

Thank you, Jackie, as always the best place to be! <3

Petals said...

Thank you Ms Jackie. Loved seeing everyone!

Happy Mother's Day Sunday, Happy Birth Mother's Day (the Sat before Mothers Day) and Happy et Mothers Day to ALL of us.

Jackie said...

Thank you all for coming!

As for Sarah's move, hey ... It's Survivor. Except if it comes up against her in jury, it was smart thinking on her part to get her hands on that advantage. She's in it for a million dollars, not friendships.

Petals said...

MONTY!!!!! You're late!

Becky said...

Petals, you are a hoot! Joe, I agree. Jackie, thank you so much for hosting. I doubt I will be there tomorrow. PT is kicking my hiney. Scritches to Vincent. Oh, email me your address, please. When Tommy transferred the information to our new computer my address book was lost.

Becky said...

Hey, Monty, bye, Monty.

Judi Sweeney said...

Sorry got an extremely late start here... kids baseball games took priority! A great reason not to tell a competitor you are going to WILL an advantage if voted out! Hello!!! Thank Jackie! See you all tomorrow!
