Survivor: Island of the Idols - October 30 Blog Party


Okay, the tribes have been shuffled, yet they kept the weakest challenge link on the more losing tribe. Maybe that's so they can lose some more. I'll be updating this entry as the show airs here on the East Coast -- refresh the page to get the latest happenings!

Lifeguard Laurie has updated the blog pool to reflect the tribe shuffle and the latest departed. She indeed rocks!

Lairo
Dean Kowalski -- CherryPie, Merrilee
Karishma Patel -- Ed in Ohio, SueGee
Jack Nichting -- David, jennifer
Jamal Shipman -- Donna in Alabama, Petals
Janet Carbin -- Donna NY, Sharon C
Kellee Kim -- Glenn Allen, Indiana Jane
Noura Salman -- Jennasmom

Vokai
Aaron Meredith -- Auntie Leigh
Elaine Stott -- Cheryl in NC
Elizabeth Beisel -- CherylNY, monty 924
Missy Byrd -- Janice, TS14Fan
Dan Spilo -- Bizaro22, marthalight
Jason Linden -- Dr_Celine, Nickelpeed
Lauren Beck -- Jackie, Sharon N

Tommy Sheehan -- Karen in CA, Terry is a Texan

Survivor fans ready?
Again, right to the show, no opening sequence/theme.

Noura is trying to get a bunch against Jack and Jamal. Now the target will turn on her. Karishma and Dean are the two sole members of the minority tribe.

On Vokai there are four from each tribe and they're still worrying about going to rocks in case of a tie at tribal.

Reward Challenge time. Transport a sled with sandbags and one tribe member through obstacles, collect keys, unload all the sandbags, that person must shoot three targets. It's the chickens reward. They sat out Elaine who instead of watching will go to the Island of the Idols.

Vokai wins Reward!

With all the down time, Rob is building the Mansion of the Shelters. He says Sandra snores so she might get her own wing.

Elaine arrives. Her lesson is having the courage to be daring. Rob tells us that being as impulsive as she is might be a double edged sword as she just jumped on her challenge without knowing what it is. Rob tells her a lot of information about the Immunity Challenge and where she needs to grab an advantage. If she doesn't get it, she loses a vote. She must choose who goes to the Island next.

Jack doesn't seem to know much about your average Black men. Jamal schools him. Hopefully Jack really listens.

At least they're talking about eating the rooster this time around. Elaine tells Elizabeth what she needs to do because Elizabeth knows about the island.

Immunity Challenge -- dig under big cage, get inside it, collect five balls while in cage, target. Noura sits out.

LAIRO WON IMMUNITY!

And Elaine succeeded. She can block one vote. However, she might still go home because her own people are willing to betray her. Her name is in there as well as Lauren and Dan. 

Time for Tribal Council. Jeff starts off with the tie possibility. Whoa! Elaine reads her advantage and blocks Jason's vote. (He was one saying her name.) Lots of whispering going on. Lauren is crying. She thinks she will be going home. 

The tally --
Elaine, Elaine, Elaine, Jason, Jason, Jason, Jason.

Byebye, Jason. Ohhh bitterness, tells them not to trust Aaron.

Hi Jackie and Vincent! Thank you for giving us a place to talk.

It'll be interesting to see if Lairo shoots themselves in the foot, again.

Nickelpeed said...

jennifer said...

Starving!!

Nickelpeed said...

Oooooh, SueGee, that pot roast sounds great!!!

Petals said...

Teeb! Sorry you're unwell... :(

PS - it's snowing here (KCMO)

Glenn Allen said...

TBC I hope you start feeling better.

jennifer said...

I think people who are so quick to throw out others should NOT be trusted

Nickelpeed said...

Here we go with the chickens. Let's see if they are smart enough to realize, don't kill the females...

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Petals.

jennifer said...

Come on Jack!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Petals.

I said the same, Jennifer. You cannot trust offers to throw their people under the bus.

Jenna G said...

Hi Jackie, Glenn, Penny, Jennifer, Petals, Suegee, tbc & Joe! Long time...I've been watching just not live. My Wednesday nights have been crazy! So happy to hang with everyone tonight!❤

Nickelpeed said...

There it goes. Lairo just can't pull it off.

Don't get cocky, Dan.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Jenna

Joe in NY said...

Happy Birthday, Petals!

XXX

jennifer said...

Welcome back Jenna!

monty924 said...

Hi everyone... late again and for the chicken episode.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Nickel

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Jennifer. Good point Penny about the Chickens.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jenna!

The moleman said...

Vokai won im "shocked"

Nickelpeed said...

Petals!!! Happy Birthday!!!

monty924 said...

Yes, our miss Petals celebrates another successful trip around the sun tomorrow. Happy Birthday!!! ♥

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Jenna and Monty. I wonder what task Elaine has to do to get her advantage.

Glenn Allen said...

Happy Birthday Petals.

Nickelpeed said...

Let's hope Elaine doesn't blab what's going on with the Island of the Idols.

Jenna G said...

Happy Birthday Petals!๐Ÿง❤

Petals said...

it's tomorrow, Penny, but THANK YOU!

Do you think they gave all the contestants a crash course on who are Rob & Sandra? B/C I have watched since day one, and I wouldn't recognize Sandra on the street (or even right in front of me, identifying herself, LOL)

Jenna G said...

Oh dang that was super impulsive! Didn't expect that from her.

Nickelpeed said...

I actually like Elaine.

Jenna G said...

This challenge has been pretty successful in the past. Hope she can do it.

jennifer said...

Happy Birthday to you, Petals๐Ÿค—

The moleman said...

If noura was really playing shed want to go after janet or kellee cause jack and jamal are not good players but thats noura being noura!

SueGee said...

1So far this season they are on track to set a record for people going home with an idol in their pocket! No one has actually played one - yet

Jenna G said...

I like Elaine too! She had me when that one guy was tring to trick her and she saw right through it then he was voted out. She's very intuitive and that helps alot in this game.

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, I would not recognize them either. I work at an arena. We have quite a few singers come in. They do not always look like what you see on tv or pictures

Petals said...

Thank you Friend. Is Joey dressing-up this Halloween? heheehee

monty924 said...

I think I'd recognize Sandra and Rob. Most Survivor fans have watched them play multiple times each.

monty924 said...

I wish I could get him to wear a costume. He doesn't even like bandannas, LOL!!

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, it's not that I wouldn't notice them when they are standing still, but walking along the street, in passing, it'd be harder.

Petals said...

Thanks everyone for the bday greetings :) It's my dad's bday too (both Halloween babies!) and my brother flew him in for us to be together. (he's older, lives far away).

wow - more outta Jamal tonight than all season!

Jenna G said...

That is so neat you share a bday with your dad & on Halloween!

The moleman said...

First of all happy birthday petals, second of all yep were seeing alot of jamal wonder if that means hes going soon!

Petals said...

I hate the chicken episodes... *sniffle* ๐Ÿ˜ข

Nickelpeed said...

Oh why, oh why Elaine!!!

jennifer said...

Hope Elaine can pull this off

Nickelpeed said...

Moleman, I think they wanted to give viewers a lesson in race relations.

Petals said...

Jenna - and Nick Saban! He's a Halloween baby! LOL (RTR)

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too, Jennifer. What worries me is will Elizabeth turn on her?

jennifer said...

Omgosh

Nickelpeed said...

I hope nobody saw her.

monty924 said...

Ohhhh... she dropped it

Nickelpeed said...

That is why they needed stronger people. That's right, vote the men off more Lairo.

Petals said...

I'm not a fan of the chick that went to meet Rob/Sand. She'll screw this up, somehow.

Nickelpeed said...

Could Lairo get their first win??? LOL

Petals said...

WOW!!!

monty924 said...

Oh no! My girl is going to TC

Nickelpeed said...

WOW! I guess they needed it for once

Nickelpeed said...

That is a huge advantage. The 4 old Lairo are in trouble.

Glenn Allen said...

My pool girl safe from winning the challenge. I think her Immunity Idol expires now. It should be interesting to see if Elaine tells anyone else but Elisabeth about the advantage.

SueGee said...

1-0 Houston

Nickelpeed said...

Who do want to win, SueGee?

jennifer said...

I have been kicked off the large television for the game, I get survivor on the little one

SueGee said...

Not really a fan of either, but for my Mother who grew up in DC when it was the Senators, I've favored the Nationals

Nickelpeed said...

I hope Jason did not believe Aaron. However, that advantage is huge. It will decimate the old Lairo team members. Let's see how she uses it.

The moleman said...

True but this isnt big brother race dosent mean as much in survivor theres been plenty of people of color that have dominated this game but well see and i have yet to see jamal do anything yet in this game with the exception of finding the idol so well see!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no, they're aiming toward Elaine. She tells every one?

The moleman said...

Not a fan of hers either!

Jenna G said...

I hope they dont turn on her.

Petals said...

Elaine! yeah...not a fan

SueGee said...

Well said Moleman!

The moleman said...

Was a home run!

Petals said...

Jenna - how much snow do you have? Jennifer? I have accumulation, like an inch...it's a lull now, but another band is on it's way.

Nickelpeed said...

That's terrible. It's making me hope she pulls this off.

Jenna G said...

Yep he's turning on her...dang! It's over for her...shoot! Have you guys noticed that ppl that have gone to Idol island have been getting voted off...it's like a curse.

Nickelpeed said...

I bet this is going to be a big surprise. Either way, someone is going to be blindsided.

Jenna G said...

No inch here. maybe a quarter of an inch.

jennifer said...

The only snow I see is a “powder sugar dusting” on my deck. Snow only belongs on grass and trees.

SueGee said...

They go to Idol Island and get an idol and leave with it in their pocket!!

The moleman said...

So its either elaine or rocks?

Nickelpeed said...

I was thinking the same, Jenna. But it hasn't affected Elizabeth.

SueGee said...

Clear skies here today and 70 degrees. Smoke is blowing the other way for now. No more stale cigar smell in the garage!

Glenn Allen said...

So Elizabeth and Kellee still around from Island of the Idols. Does Elaine get blindsided?

Nickelpeed said...

Nor has it affected Kellee on Lairo.

Jenna G said...

Yep that's what I see outside as well.

monty924 said...

Elizabeth (my pool girl), Noura and Kellee have all been to the island and are still hanging in there.

Nickelpeed said...

I want your weather SueGee. Thank God the smoke is blowing away. I feel so sorry for those affected. I have a friend who has had her power out going on the 4th day. She has a dog that needs breathing treatments. Thank God she has a generator.

Nickelpeed said...

I forgot Noura. LOLOLOLOL

Petals said...

Sue - I am so sad about those fires. All those babies...

Nickelpeed said...

The old Lairo is going to be blindsided. Maybe Aaron doesn't flip now.

Jenna G said...

True some people have made it out of Isle of the idols unscathed. So maybe not a curse....yet....

SueGee said...

I have family that is north of the fire area - and they have had no power, this time, since Friday. They cut power around here within blocks of my house, so we have been lucky. We have our earthquake kit ready - so if they cut the power we will be ok for a while...

Petals said...

dang - what happened to keeping things quiet? Now it's all open-whispering. (hey, is that oxymoronic? "open whispering"?)

monty924 said...

TC drama at it's finest

Petals said...

Sue - it's just so much needless destruction, so sad. All those birds, bunnies, raccoos, etc...burned. Dead. :(

SueGee said...

TC is one part of the show that gets a heavy edit. They can actually go on for hours!!

Nickelpeed said...

This is a huge advantage for Elaine and crew, why would they break their vote?

Petals said...

Wouldn't it be cool to see just ONE unedited version of an episode?

Nickelpeed said...

There goes my guy.

Petals said...

darn it!

monty924 said...

They pulled it off!!!

jennifer said...

Ha!!!

Jenna G said...

Elaine survives!

SueGee said...

I think you would need to go on the show Petals - but when we had the Survivor hosted shows they all loved to talk about what we the viewers never get to see!

Nickelpeed said...

I knew they wouldn't switch. He trusted Aaron. He shouldn't have. There goes my pool pick. Drat!!!

Aaron pulled him in. To think they were safe. Crap.

Petals said...

it's already over? NOOOOOOO

Jackie - thank you! Hope you & Count Vincent have a safe & fun Halloween! Hope everyone else does, too!

BOO! XOXOXOXOXO

jennifer said...

Thanks Jackie, everyone have a wonderful week!
Jenna and petals, hoping for minimal snow!

SueGee said...

Night night everyone!!

monty924 said...

That was good. Thanks Jackie... everyone have a safe and Happy Halloween *especially Petals*!!

Suegee, stay safe out there!

Glenn Allen said...

I have several friends who live in the LA area. A couple of them marked themselves safe. I am still waiting to see a couple others. I like that Jason said don't trust Aaron.

The moleman said...

Wow not a bad move think Lauren is a good player and Aarons at least trying elaines vote block really worked now missy has the numbers again!

Nickelpeed said...

SueGee, I've seen the mountain fires when we were stationed outside the Mojave Desert, in the 90's. There was also one up the mountain towards Big Bear. The one closer to us was kind of scary. I feel really sad for those affected.

Thank you Jackie!! See everyone next week!!!

Jenna G said...

Thankyou Jackie! Goodnight all. Prayers for California folks, firefighters, and animals in the path of the fires❤

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by! Happy Halloween and birthday to Petals!

Nickelpeed said...

At Jason was a sport about it.

The moleman said...

Shouldn't have gone off looking for that idol on day 1 his name probably never gets mentioned here if thats the case!

The moleman said...

Lauren, dan, and tommy need a win desperately next week!

Auntie Leigh said...

I am here today just wondering what you all think. I did not see what Erin was up to. I'm still not sure what game Lauren was playing. Wy did she vote for Elaine.? Petals: Happy birthday and please change your mind about Elaine. She is funny and personable and humble, IMO. She is not swanning around in a bikini and is not ashamed of her body. Thx for the prayers for Cali...i haven't lost power yet but all around me have and so my neighborhood is swamped with power refugees...people are nervous wrecks wondering what is going to happen next. see you all next week, all being well...

The moleman said...

Not a fan of elaine don't respect her game but .she did play her advantage correctly if she didn't it would have been a 7-1 vote against her! Aaron is trying hees a wildcard and such a threat he needs to stay loyal for now try to get the numbers later on but hees not winning the game. Think Laurens a good player shes in good with missy and with dan and tommy she could ne a threat if she has the numbers post merge. On the other tribe kellee and janet are major threats to win the whole thing and noura wants to make a move against jamal and jack who are after her but can't win the whole thing shes really not a good player well see what happens!

Auntie Leigh said...

Thx for the comments, Moleman. I think Aaron will be toast next vote for betraying everyone. Missy and Kellee seem to me to be the two strongest players at this point. I think there are many unanswered questions about IOI and what they are allowed to tell...the suprise of meeting Rob and Sanddra will be spoiled if returnees tell.

The moleman said...

Agree with missy and kellee being the strongest players, rooting for Elisabeth though, don't know about aaron being next out they might need him to take out tommy and to keep him around for the merge so he can be the #1 target! Ya and island of the idols elaine and Elizabeth have already discussed rob and sandra don't think they will tell anyone else but after the merge if enough players have been to ioi it may not be a suprise anymore and they may not be going to tribal behind closed doors! And i think its funny that 2 of the biggest goats of all time are not only in the same season but on the same tribe!
