Hungry enough to eat termites

Tonight Survivor Tocantins was hyped as the wettest and wildest ever.  Well, I am fairly confident it did not live up to the hype. 

When the tribe had come back from tribal council it looked like Sandy would be next.  I personally think she will be around a little bit longer than that.

You can tell that the hunger pains are kickin in when they start looking for anything to eat.  From worms to termites.  I once ate a moth and it did nothing for me but I guess if your hungry enough to eat anything…you do just that…eat anything!

Seems like Coach has found either a love interest or an arch enemy in Candace.  They seem to not see eye to eye…but then in a weird and awkward moment he ended up licking her face.  I expect great things to come from Coach this season!

In the hyped “wet and wild” competition there was little to really be amazed from.  But here are my points I would like to bring up from the game.

I loved the drama of the Timbira being up 2-0 and then  Jalapao coming back to win 3-2.  Awesome!!  I thought the one round when it was 1-0 and it was 2 guys and 1 girl from each team that Sandy held the one littler lady by her bikini top in the back.  She was waving her hand like she had roped a calf.  She is very comical and a little nutty….that is why I am liking Sandy still! 

Since my blog readers KNOW SURVIVOR, they were right about the twist having to do with Exile island.  I like the fact that it was 2 people….one per team….I also like the fact that they could go to another tribe if desired.  If that is a weekly thing, anyone feeling like an outcast or in danger on their tribe could go to the other tribe (which they would ALSO be an outcast) but it still could make for some drama.  Guess we will see.

Brenden seemed to be a little slow to understand the term “tribes homelands”…made me chuckle.

Not sure why Taj told people she was married to Eddie George.  You don’t give people a REASON to vote you off like that…she was a brute in the basketball in the water challenge but still…keep those things underwraps.

Timbira had a date with tribal council.  Sure enough they all talked and sure enough another lady was voted off.  I liked how Jeff said that it was “another blindside”.  Aren’t all tribal council’s going to be a blind side…it is a “secret vote” after all.  :)

Candace did not make the cut.  She was voted out 7-1.

So the ladies are not doing to well yet this season.  Do you think Coach’s ego will be his downfall?  What did you think of the twist?

I anxiously await your comments.  I will be posting next week’s preview on Tuesday so be ready.  Until then….happy surfing!

Merge Has Come And The Power Shifts

Hello guys… I am back again.

The new merged tribe is now called Nobag Tribe. The opposite of Gabon. A pretty good name.

Did anyone see last weeks episode? So the merge has come and there were 9 players left.3 blindsights in a row and the power man is now Kenny and Sugar. Kenny because he is the mastermind behind everything and Sugar with her immunity idol.

It was time for The Survivor Auction! I really like this part of the game. The items that were on sale were, Chocolate Chip Cookies, A hot bath, a chance to send someone to exile island, a passage to the last round of the immunity challenge, beer & peanuts, chocolate & peanut butter.

Nobody likes Randy except Corrine and Bob. The rest of them detest him and they were planning on voting on him. Corrine & Randy failed to get Matty on their side.

Bob was sent to exile island where he couldn’t find the hidden immunity idol and so he made one himself. He then gave that to Randy to use at the Tribal Council. Sugar convinced Bob to give it to Randy for laughs.

At the immunity challenge, Kenny, Matty and Corrine made it to the final round. Corrine desperately needed the immunity to keep her group of three strong except that Kenny won immunity challenge. Corrine and Bob hate Susie and so does Randy. Their plan was to use Bob’s hidden immunity idol to keep himself safe and vote out Susie.

At the Tribal Council, Randy plays the immunity idol but finds out that it is a fake one. So he gets voted out.

My god Randy must be pissed off to the core after this. I wonder what he will do while be a jury member.

Only 7 Survivors are left. Who will be voted out next?

Do you guys remember when Marcus & Charlie got the group of people to throw the hidden immunity idol into the water? Well, they threw the bottle but never checked it. Marcus kept the idol in his pocket and then hid it around camp. Only Bob knows about this.

In next weeks episode, Bob tells this to Corrine and now they also have a hidden immunity idol along with Sugar. I think Corrine is going to go but wil play the idol which will make Susie the one who has to go.

Who do you think is going to go next week?
Will the hidden immunity idol that Bob has come into play?
Who do you think has the power now?

That is all for now. I will be back later with more recaps and more insights and opinions.

3 And A Half Weeks And 7 Episodes In And The Surprises, Mix Ups And The Game Keeps Changing Towards The Unknown

Hello guys…

Survivor Gabon and the contestants are 24 days in which is 3 and a half weeks. There are now only 10 Survivors left on Gabon and we finally have our first member of the Jury.

As we stand right now, 9 people have been voted out.

They are; (In order of elimination)

1. Michelle
2. Gillian
3. Paloma
4. Jacquie
5. GC
6. Kelly
7. Ace
8. Dan
9. Marcus

Until now, we now that Sugar has the hidden immunity idol. Sugar was dumb enough to blindsight her biggest allie Ace. She made a huge mistake to vote out Ace and realises it in the 7th episode of the season which aired this past Thursday.

Lets see what else… There have been two tribal switches. Both came as a surpsise to the Survivors.
The first one came in Episode 4 where the Survivors had to rank themselves within their tribe. The two highest ranked members would be new captains. They then would pick new tribes one by one.
The second switch came in the most recent episode and it came as a huge shock. With 10 Survivors left, all of them thought a merge was imminent, but little did they know that they would be mixed up again. They had to pick numbers and then odd numbers were together as were even.

Marcus made possibly the worst move so far besides Sugar blind sighting Ace. Actually it was Randy’s idea to do so. This did hurt Marcus though. Randy got the group of 10 people to throw away another hidden immunity idol. Before throwing it, they offered it to anyone but no one took it.

I think this move was a blow to Marcus and the other thing was that he could not swing Suzie towards himself. So Marcus became the 9th person to be voted off on Survivor and became the first member of the Jury.

Finally, the tribes as they stand as of Day 24;

Kota: Bob, Susie, Crystal and Kenny
Fang: Corrine, Charlie, Randy, Sugar and Matty

As we stand now on the alliances;

Kota: Susie, Crystal and Kenny are together and Bob is on the edge.

Fang: Corrine, Charlie and Randy are together. Sugar and Matty are really strong because Sugar has the hidden immunity idol. Matty did win Fang the immunity challenge though so that might change the alliances in this tribe up a little bit.

Do you think Sugar can make the merge?
If Kota lose then is Bob going to be voted out?
Will Susie (who should have been out a long time ago) make the merge?
Can Sugar use her immunity idol effectively?
Will it now be Kota’s turn to be on a losing streak?

That is all for now. I will be back later with more recaps and more insights and opinions.

If you have any comments or questions then please do post in the comments below.

3 weeks in…what do you think so far?

>???? ??? ???? not sure yet….I mean….after the 2 hour season premier I kept thinking….Oh Great!  The Fang Tribe is going to all go home.  Then the Kota tribe will then eat themselves from inside leaving an ACE vs. SUGAR finalle and they will get married and then run the Amazing Race!

Boy, am I ever happy that Fang came back in week 2!

So tonight, is week 3.  Who are you liking?  I am impressed that Sugar found the Hidden Immunity Idol.  I would have NEVER in a million years thought she would have…but she did and well.  That impressed me!  :)

So who is your early favorite?  Will Fang fall to Kota again?  I am still dealing with Michelle being voted out first.  (she was way beautiful!)

So 2 weeks in, 3 episodes in, Michelle, Gillian and Paloma, 3 ladies from Survivor Gabon have been eliminiated.  Is this a trend?  Will the boys make sure that there is no all girl final 4 like last season?  Guess we will have to wait and see.  Either way, the RETURN of the RED X is back as you can see from the top of the site.  I love my JOB!  :)

I will recap tonights show tomorrow.  Sorry I have had a tough time keeping this blog going but I am here and will try to do better!  If you would like to write for me please let me know.  I am always open to having guest bloggers!
