We get the "loved ones" visit tonight. Gee, golly, whiz! You'd think they're being reunited after a lifetime apart instead of around a month. I know this episode always seems popular with many, but it always comes across as super schmaltzy to me. 

Seven are left. Who will be voted out tonight?

Once again, Mike is blindsided by the vote. Ryan is a bit worried as his only ally is Chrissy and now he doesn't have his idol. Ben and Chrissy are having words ... heated ones at that. She feels that Ben betrayed her and was being a jerk. She's determined to make it to the end and get back at Ben.

Time for the Reward Challenge. Another new challenge -- running in pairs with loved ones. Here comes the schmaltz. And, it's delivered. Bags with marbles, one black, one white. Must match. Last pair survives and gets a feast, goes to camp. Lauren/sister out. Mike/wife out. Ryan/Father out. Ben/wife IN. Chrissy/husband IN. Ashley/father out. Devon/mother out.

Second round -- Ben/wife out. Chrissy/husband IN. Chrissy and Keith win! In charge of love. Can take one -- she chooses Ryan and father. One more -- Mike and wife. One last choice -- Ashley and father. 

Chrissy is looking at this as vengeance on Ben. Hmm. I'm not sure if it's the best path for her to take. But I am happy with her Ryan choice. 

Ben decides to make and hide a fake idol to cover his search for a real one. Devon and Lauren know. Lauren knows that Ben wants to embarrass Chrissy with it. She has a problem with him taking things to a personal level.

Ohhh ... Lauren finds one half of an immunity idol with a note that the other half will be at the Immunity Challenge. Of course, Ben and Devon were nearby and know all about it.

Immunity Challenge time! Arms stretched out, fingertips holding against two wooden disks, disks drop, you're out. Jeff goes on about the heat to make it feel even hotter for them. Ben out first. Chrissy out. Ryan out. Lauren out. Mike out. Devon says to Jeff that he and Ashley are strong allies. Then he negotiates for a massage with Ashley and he drops the disks. Ashley wins Immunity!

Meanwhile, Lauren did get the other part of the idol. 

Oh my. While she has a solid alliance, Ashley is thinking that she needs to get out the stronger players. She wants Ben gone. Devon wants Chrissy out. Ohh, Ben is eavesdropping on them, but didn't hear what they said. He just thinks they acted suspicious. They tell him the target is Chrissy. Ben thinks they might be targeting him. 

He runs and talks to Mike. He tells Mike about Lauren's idol and how she has both the idol and the extra vote. Then he tells Ryan that he wants Lauren out. Ryan knows they need Chrissy aboard and she despises Ben.  

Ben decides he needs to get Chrissy to save himself in the game ... so he tells HER about Lauren. Oh. And he apologized to Chrissy. She's not too quick to trust him, though. 

Devon runs to Lauren and tells her about Ben's work to blindside her and how he told everyone about her idol and advantage. Lauren gave Mike one half of her idol. Hmm. 

Tribal Council comes rather early -- something will happen! Jeff talks about the Devon/Ashley deal. Devon says he would have done the same with Lauren. Ben pipes up that his name wasn't mentioned. Now they're all talking about Ben telling all about Lauren's idol. Lauren claims she left the advantage at camp and can't use it. Then she tells that Mike has half the idol. She tells of Ben's fake idol. He's wearing it. Mike throws his own real idol into the campfire.

Oh my.

Mike and Ryan are whispering that Lauren needs to go. Lauren tells Chrissy that she'll give her the advantage. Lots of whispering Ben and Lauren going home.

The tally.
Ben speaks up. WHOA! He has a real idol he found! He plays it for himself.

Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben, Lauren.

Lauren is out!

~~~SPLASH~~~~ Hi to Jackie & Vincent and all that enter!

Jackie - I hope your back is feeling better tonight, or at least you had something good to take for it!

Squeegee From the LeftCoast

SueGee said...

I'm in the middle of making a pot of Won Ton soup, so if I disappear I promise I will be back.

Nickelpeed said...

~~~SPLASH~~~ Hi Jackie and Vincent! Thank you Jackie, for hosting us!!

How are you doing, Jackie?

Hi SueGee!!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh SueGee, Won Ton soup sounds sooooooooo good!!

I'm beginning to really dislike Ben.

SueGee said...

Hey Penny. Get any snow where you are?

Nickelpeed said...

Not yet, SueGee. It's coming this week, though.

monty924 said...

Hi everyone... I've got brisket nachos. Dig in!!!

Sharon N said...

Hi Jackie, and all who follow!

The 'reunion' show strikes me much like you label it... schmaltzy and a little too gooey. Although I didn't realize the "separation anxiety" only lasted for about a month... which makes it even more ditzy.

In it for the comps!! Although there are people I don't care for (as usual), I haven't been able to pick a favorite. Though I do rather like Lauren.



Nickelpeed said...

Hi Monty!!

monty924 said...

Yes, snow possible on Saturday. Brrrrrrr

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Jackie, Penny and Suegee and anyone else who follows!

SueGee said...

All I need to do is fold the won tons and throw them in the soup. All the veggies are chopped and I have shrimp and BBQ Pork to throw in too

Judi Sweeney said...

Hi Jackie, Sue and Penny.... Ready for Survivor! I brought a hot pan of nachos!

Judi Sweeney said...

Poops missed Monty and Glenn! Hi guys!

SueGee said...

Hi Monty, Glenn, Sharon!!!

Been reading the promos for the BB and TAR and Survivor seasons all starting after the first of the year. I think Jackie is going to be very busy for a few weeks. TAR is going to be all double episodes I think too. At least BB is going to be very short...

Judi Sweeney said...

LOL.... that was supposed to be "Oops"

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Monty! I like the family challenges! Hopefully Ryan can get something to eat and survive!

SueGee said...

And Hi to Judi too!

I'll be back in a few...

monty924 said...

I love these family episodes

monty924 said...

Hey Glenn and Judi

Nickelpeed said...

I really want Ryan to win. He needs this. If he doesn't get it, nobody will include him.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Glenn and Judi

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi everyone!

Big Ben says to his wife "you smell so good"

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Ryan.

Nickelpeed said...

Shoot!! Why him?

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, for Chrissy~

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Chrissy~!

Nickelpeed said...

YES!!! Now pick Ryan~

Nickelpeed said...

I am so happy for them.

monty924 said...

WOW... total game of chance

Nickelpeed said...

Good. Serves the other 3 for being so rude to her.

monty924 said...

Hey Homie... love your avatar :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

Chrissy got back at Ben....kinda' spiteful

tbc said...

Hi all!!

Wow!!

monty924 said...

I have to catch up on Ponderosa. Haven't watched the last two evicted.

monty924 said...

Yeah, it was Ed.
Hey tbc

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Ed, Go Buckeyes!

Hi tbc!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey Homie! Luv me some Bucks.....win or lose!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Penny! Yes Go Buckeyes!!

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Judi! It does sound like a busy season is coming up with the programs. the Rock drawing doesn't seem like a good challenge.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know Ed, they've been pretty horrible to Ryan and Chrissy. Ben, Devin and Lauren have been arrogant.

I'd like to see one of them, Ben, Lauren, Devin or Ashley leave.

Ben thinks he's smart, I hope it backfires. JMO

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it!

monty924 said...

Go Lauren

Nickelpeed said...

I don't know if Chrissy picked the wrong people or not. She knows Ben, Devin and Lauren are going to try to come up with a plan to get her.

tbc said...

Oh, I’m sorry, I brought chili and Pinot Grigio. Enjoy!!

monty924 said...

Seems like I'm rooting for the mean team right now. :(((

Ed in Ohio said...

Penny, I kinda like Chrissy now a little after not liking her at all at first. I just thought maybe she was playing out of spite rather than strategy.

But now I see why she didn't want to take Ben.....he's her target.

tbc said...

She just wanted to NOT choose Ben.

Nickelpeed said...

Shut up Jeff!!!

monty924 said...

Can't help but feel bad for Ryan. He's starving.

Ed in Ohio said...

Ryan looks like he really has to stretch

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah Ed, Chrissy and Ben do not like each other. Ben rubs people the wrong way.

Dang, I wanted Ryan to win. Okay, Mike, hang in there.

Nickelpeed said...

I used to like Devin a lot, but lately, he's been pretty bad.

Nickelpeed said...

What jerks.

monty924 said...

Yay, Ashley!!

Laurie said...

Hello from the Lifeguard!
I am home on a Wednesday night for a change so I'm following Jackie's blog live ... even though the show doesn't start here for another few hours.
I'm still celebrating the end of Joe from last week!

Nickelpeed said...

If this continues, it will definitely be Ben, Ashley, Devin, and Lauren as the final 4.

Who will they get rid of now? Chrissy, Ryan or Mike???

monty924 said...

Hi Lifeguard Laurie. I have to watch Joe's Ponderosa... I can't believe I haven't caught the last two yet.

Glenn Allen said...

Hi lifeguard Laurie!

Nickelpeed said...

They're leaving a lot left for the Tribal Council. We still have a lot of time.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Laurie!

monty924 said...

I don't know, Penny. A Ben blindside isn't out of the question tonight. Ashley's already been thinking about it.

Glenn Allen said...

Where is the Ponderosa? Is it on CBS Website or the Big Brother Paid site?

Nickelpeed said...

She thought about it last time, but still voted with her alliance.

I'd love to see Ben go.

tbc said...

Yay, Ashley!

Nickelpeed said...

Why is Mike still talking to him?

monty924 said...

Ut oh.... Lauren

Nickelpeed said...

Ben does have a point. Lauren has a lot of advantages.

Nickelpeed said...

I'd rather see Ben go than Lauren.

monty924 said...

Hey Glenn... it's on the CBS show site under videos and you can find them on youtube also. Just search Survivor Ponderosa Joe, or anyone you want to see.

Nickelpeed said...

THIS is why there is so much time left til Tribal Council.

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow you really can't trust anyone in this game

monty924 said...

Here is Joe's Ponderosa

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tzgx43YCvRU

Nickelpeed said...

Who's it going to be???

Glenn Allen said...

Thanks Monty! I can't believe that Lauren gave away half of the Idol!

Ed in Ohio said...

Why do they talk so much BEFORE the vote!?!

monty924 said...

WOW, lol

Nickelpeed said...

Hahahahahahahahaha. This gets deeper and deeper. Love this!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Uhmmmm, maybe Mike goes. This is hilarious.

monty924 said...

#chaos :)))

monty924 said...

What the hell!!! My favorite phrase, lol

tbc said...

Love it!!

Ed in Ohio said...

This is crazy!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Thing is, Ben has the idol. He will probably use it.

Nickelpeed said...

Are they bluffing Chrissy and Ryan???

SueGee said...

Soup is ready!! Shout out if you want some home made won ton soup!!

Hi to Laurie (waving pointing south)

Squeegee

tbc said...

Wow! This is one of the best tribal’s in a while!!

monty924 said...

Dang!!! That was awesome

Laurie said...

Thanks for all the hellos!

Ed in Ohio said...

6 for Ben .... only 1 for Lauren....bye Lauren

Glenn Allen said...

Lauren out because she gave away half of her Idol and didn't even use the vote allowance! I wonder if she had the vote with her or left it at camp!

Nickelpeed said...

Wow!!! Amazing! You don't tell people what you have. Ben didn't tell anyone he had an idol, that's why he's still here. Oh well.

Jackie, thank you so very much for hosting us. I hope your back feels better soon.

Will see everyone next Wednesday.

Have a great week and weekend everyone.

Nickelpeed said...

SueGee, the Won Ton soup sounds great!

tbc said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting!!

See you all next week. <3

Ed in Ohio said...

G'nite All!

Fun show tonight!

Thanks Jackie!

Sharon N said...

Looks like I jinxed Lauren by saying I liked her. Thought I remembered Ben had found a real idol... the fake he made faked them out!! Well, on to pick a new fav. Take care till next week.

Thanks for hosting Jackie.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, she's so humble.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

Loved Lauren's attitude in her good-bye. Class!!

Thanks Jackie for letting all of us hang out here on Wednesday nights and will see you all next week. Now I'm off to watch JP and Joe's Ponderosa.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, very classy, Monty. I just wish it had been Ben. Oh well. She took it so well. Even her votes would not have saved her.

Can it go to someone else since she left it back at the camp?

Judi Sweeney said...

Well, there goes my pool girl Lauren...

Thanks Jackie for hosting us every Wednesday!
