Survivor 41: October 20 Episode Blog Party

 


Yessirree ... we're back for more schemin' demons ... er ... castaways. The tribes are getting down so low that you know a shuffle or merge has to be upon us soon. So, what are we in for tonight? Will Shan hum again? She's reminding me of Omar's whistling 'The Farmer in the Dell' as he walks with his shotgun in The Wire.

I will be live blogging the episode as it airs here on the East Coast. Refresh the page to catch the latest major updates! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Please feel free to join in on the fun!

Survivor fans ready?

Ua - Day 10! The tribe of three. Genie is feeling solid with the three of them. Genie is looking for JD's recycled three-part idol rehidden. And, she finds it! Argh. She tells Shan and Ricard about it. Shan doesn't want it opened, tells us she doesn't want anyone to have more power than her. She talks to Ricard, neither trust Genie. They decide to hide a fake idol in its place before opening it. It is the three-way one. If the third part isn't used by the merge, it expires. Ricard, the one behind the fake idol idea, tells Genie they need to say Brad's speech just to see if Luvu has found theirs.

Luvu - Erika is out there catching fish. The men are getting worried about men on other tribes are getting voted out. Naseer doesn't want to throw challenges. He is feeling good because Danny and Deshawn have accepted him. They haven't really, though. They just feel they need him.

Yase - The women are making Xander feel like he has the power. Tiffany and Evvie don't trust his relationship with Liana. They go in his bag and find the extra vote. He tells Tiffany that he has the three part.

Day 11. A very hot day. Whoa! Naseer comes up with the third line for the three-part idol! Immunity Challenge -- also Reward, rope and giant tarp for 1st, 2nd smaller tarp. 

Up and over net "ramp," one person untangle knots after all tribe mates up and over, release key, machete to release bags, fire at targets with giant slingshot doohickey.

YASE wins 1st Immunity! Luvu wins 2nd! Uh-oh ... Ua will be down to two? Yase sends two in a journey, must choose a Ua -- chooses Shan. One more -- Liana.

Liana and Shan travel together. Shan rats out Xander to Liana. They agree to work together after the merge. Shan also tells her that if she's not here tomorrow, Ricard can't be trusted because he's her ally. We get the backstory on both. Shan used to be in a gang but is now a pastor. Liana is just getting to know her mother. Shan doesn't risk her vote. Liana says she needs to risk her vote. The Knowledge of Power Advantage. She can ask others if they have an idol or advantage, they cannot lie to her. Then she can take it.

Ua - Ricard and Genie. Ricard tells her that he thinks Shan will vote him out. He tells us he plans on convincing Genie to vote out Shan while he and Shan vote out Genie. Genie doesn't really trust Ricard. She's not a dummy and she tells us she and Shan would vote him out.

Shan returns and tells us she will tell them all that happens. She does tell them that she did not risk her vote. All three decide to pitch themselves. Shan wants one on one meetings with both. Genie tells her she's with her. Shan trusts her. She wants to snag the extra vote back from him. Ricard tells her he won't vote her out. He thinks if he gives her the extra vote back she will vote him out. They argue-ish. He tells her he will give it back tomorrow. Shan is down to trying to decide between the strategist or the loyalist.

Tribal Council time and Jeff's Probsting questions. Ricard is taking a lot of credit for himself. Hmm. All are nervous.

The tally -- no idols played -- Genie, Ricard, Genie.

Aw, I was getting to really like her.

Next week -- Drop your buffs. But it's not really a merge. I assume it will be a tribe jumble of some kind. Either two tribes or people drawn from Luvu to fill out the other two tribes.

SPLASH

Can't stay, am too tired.

I do not like Tiffany. AT ALL!

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Jackie and Everyone.

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Petals!
Where is everyone? I went to my Nieces Wedding this past Saturday

Jackie said...

Whoa! Another quiet week? Petals, I think at this point if you met a puppy named Tiffany, you wouldn't like her! :)

Petals said...

But I love the Naseer! He is so happy!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie and Vincent. Thank you for this blog.

Hi Petals and Glenn.

These people don't like anyone. They don't trust anyone.

My husband keeps telling Jeff to shut up. lol

Glenn Allen said...

The Idols are now active,

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Penny!

tbc said...

Hi all! I hope everyone had a good week

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! And guess what?? It is raining here! Might add up to inches of rain by the middle of next week. We so need rain!!

Squeegee

Petals said...

lol...if THIS Tiffany were as cute as a puppy, I may forgive her. But this one is kinda mean. All that eye-rolling at the expense of poor Xander.

at this point, I guess the other teams will have to absorb the 2 remaining Ua people.

Jackie said...

Naseer is definitely the most likable and he is playing well, too. His only real problem is that he's so honest in a den of snakes.

Glenn Allen said...

Does Genie and Richard vote out Shan or force her to use her Idol?

Glenn Allen said...

Hi TBC and Sue Gee!

Petals said...

I thought it was just me & Jackie for a minute...
Hi everyone.

I shouldn't stay b/c I need to sleep - but now I'm in it. Gr.

Jackie said...

Sue - I hope the southern part of the state is getting it, too.

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks.

SueGee said...

Jackie - they have had some before, but if it must rain in LA, I hope it rains on the Dodgers LOL

Petals said...

True Jackie. He reminds me of Brittany from BB - just so happy to be there.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Joe, tbc, and SueGee

Was the 3-way idol activated? Do they all realize it is activated, yet?

Jackie said...

Petals - I think Naseer is better at the game itself, plus more used to the environment (roughing it in his case) than Britini was. He is nowhere near as loud, thankfully.

Glenn Allen said...

This advantage most Powerful. She can steal an Idol or Advantage after they said the Phrases.

Jackie said...

Penny - All the ones who know about it know it.

Nickelpeed said...

I am betting they vote out Ricard.

Petals said...

Penny - of course they will.

Nickelpeed said...

Thanks Jackie

tbc said...

Snake

Petals said...

I'm lost on the spin the wheel twist. I read Jackie's summary to figure out what happens with that, LOL
My brain can only handle so many twists...

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, Ricard is probably gone.

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Joe! This season is crazy so far. Shan wants whats the extra Vote back!

Joe in NY said...

I believe the phrase is "hoist upon your own petard".

Petals said...

Thank goodness the blue team keeps winning - all the men are gonna be over there.
AND they see it happening on the other teams.
This is the weirdest season ever.

Nickelpeed said...

Shan's not happy with Ricard and vice versa. He he knows how Shan works and doesn't trust her. This is so darn funny.

Jackie said...

I'd like Genie to last to the merge and work with Naseer.

Joe in NY said...

Shan and Ricard deserve each other. And they will probably end up with each other.

Petals said...

ooo...talk dirty to me, Joe! LOL

Joe in NY said...

It would be funny if Ricard and Shan burned the two powers while still voting off Genie.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't care if these women keep on voting out the men; however, they can't expect the other team to tryst them. I see only the two teams down people merging. I don't see them merging everyone.

Joe in NY said...

All I can say is if the BIPOC join forces again based on race, every reality show is going to simply become a race war going forward.

Petals said...

they will end up on the other tribes. Remember years ago, it was cool chick Stephanie and one other guy on a tribe? Jeff had to move do a tribe shuffle.

Nickelpeed said...

That would be cool, Jackie; but I think Genie is too naive.

Jackie said...

I don't think that will happen again, Joe. After the first time on BB, it will not work again.

Nickelpeed said...

This will be interesting. Who will go? Shan and Ricard are two peas in the pod. Shan has the idol, I wonder if she's going to use it?

SueGee said...

Rooting to keep Genie - I like her and she is my pool person..

Petals said...

I hope you're right, J.
Speaking of BB - how awesome is it about DX and Claire?!?!?!?!

Nickelpeed said...

I just can't see Jeff allowing a merge because of stupidity. I think they'll let them get down to very few and merge the two smallest tribes. I hope they do not split up the Blue tribe.

Glenn Allen said...

I wonder if Genie should use Shot in the Dark

Nickelpeed said...

Oh crap!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Now what are they going to do? LOL

Petals said...

wow - a man survived a Tribal. Is that a first for this season??

Glenn Allen said...

Genie voted out

SueGee said...

boooooooooo

Petals said...

they won't merge, Penny. He will have them draw new buffs and re-arrange the tribes.

SueGee said...

See you all next week, same time, same place!!

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you Jackie. It is greatly appreciated.

I hope they do not merge everyone or mix up all the tribes next week.

See everyone next week.

Petals said...

bedtime!

Thanks Ms Jackie!

Have a great week, everyone! XOXOXOX

Glenn Allen said...

Petals I love the DX Claire dating news.

Nickelpeed said...

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Nickelpeed said...

It's cool about DX and Claire.

Glenn Allen said...

I wonder if its a tribe swap.

Jackie said...

Thank you for coming!

Nickelpeed said...

What is going to happen next week? A mix up of tribes??? Crap!

Nickelpeed said...

I think so Glenn. It's not fair to Blue. It sucks. But they said it's never been done before.

Mike Barer said...

Shan is a great villain. We split castaways up into four teams with another couple in sort of a fantasy draft. Who ever has the winner takes all.
My wife has Shan, but only two left. I have Tiffany, Heather, Sydney, and DeShaun. All still in the game, but I think that I am in a weaker position.
My wife is very strong as far as finishing. I'll keep you posted.

Mike Barer said...

By the way, Sydney has a very interesting instagram page.
