Survivor Fever, think they might catch it soon?

In A somewhat boring episode of Survivor, anyone new that was watching for

The first time was probably thinking, LAME!

After getting back from the TC last time, the young members of Espada were still doubting their decision about not getting rid of Dan.

Meanwhile at the La Flor camp, Marty is bragging about not playing the idol and surviving the vote. He says he has some big cahones! Then he proceeds to jump on Jane because he thinks she voted for him. She did you fool, who in their right mind would vote for you? Marty tells Jill he thinks they need to get Jane out of the game.

At the Reward Challenge they will play for a trip to a farm. Horseback riding, cow milking and FOOD! A very nice meal is on the line.

The challenge consists of the teams having to throw a ball across a small pool and into a net. In their way will be a member of the other tribe in the middle standing on a small platform who is able to block their shots. The blocker for La Flor will be Fabio and Chase will block for Espada. With Fabio in to block NaOnka jumps and scores over Fabio’s block. 1-0. Chase enters the pool as Fabio gets out. Jill is able to score over Chase and makes it 1 – 1. Next Benry makes point #2 while Marty misses, 2 – 1. Rd. three has Holly get blocked and Kelly P make it. 2 – 2. Rd.4 Dan is next and his is usual sorry ass self, he doesn’t jump and manages to hit Chase  in the crotch (sheesh) put Sash misses for La Flor. Rd. 5 Alina makes hers while Brenda misses. 3 – 2 Espada. During the switch in blockers, Fabio decides to have a bathroom break room IN the pool. What a nerd!!

Rd.6 – NaOnka makes another pt and so does Jill. 4 – 3. Benry is up to begin Rd. 7 and makes his shot to closeout the game 5 – 3.

Back at La Flor camp, Jane decides to go fishing alone. She manages to catch a decent size fish and goes into the woods to hide and cook her catch. She starts a fire and cooks her fish which she proceeds to eat in the privacy of the jungle! Way to go Jane!

Espada rides horseback into the farm / ranch and dismounts and head for the cows. We then see Dan go first and does quite well at milking the cow. NaOnka is next and fails miserably and has to get help! Ah, Really? They then go over to the dinner table and sit down to a great meal. Cheese, Corn, veggies …. Yummy. And then there is watermelon, nice and juicy! They sit around talking and Kelly purple who hasn’t uttered a word in the game until now, she has a minor emotional moment and cries and actually speaks.

The next day the Immunity challenge is up for grabs. In a somewhat blasé game of bowling for tiles. The teams have to send two people send two people up on a tower and roll small or large cannon balls down the chutes and hit the tiles to break them. After some squabbling among the pairs at the top with the rest of team members holding the ropes to aim the chutes, everything seems to calm down and Espada casually wins the game 5-2.

Back at the La Flor camp a major play is being discussed to have Marty play the idol at TC. Make him play it or give it up is discussed and Sash will be the spokesperson. Sash goes and tells Marty what they are going to do and it is his choice whether or not to play the idol or give it up with the promise not to vote him out this week. He can also vote whatever way he wants nut that Jill will be the target.

Marty, Marty, Marty, you have no common reality game sense. You have made a mockery out of what you did with your Idol game play. Your are first class foolish ass. He now must be considered for the dumbest move ever in Survivor.

The talk around the TC fire is mostly about trust. Does Marty trust they won’t vote him out? Do Jill and Marty now have anyone they can trust? Does everyone trust that sash will give up the HII if someone else needs it? Specially after the Freudian slip about who he trusts. What might happen to the idol now that the merge is coming? My wonder is, what ever happened to Na Onka’s HII??

After a vote that everyone knew was coming Jill is voted out. Jill 3 votes, Marty 2 votes and Jane 2 votes.

Up next week, just watch the video at the beginning of this post!

Break out the WD40, I hear some old bones creaking…

In typical fashion Survivor opens in their normal dramatic way. as the tribes marched thru the  ”Remote, Mysterious and Dangerous  jungle rainforest of Nicaragua”. Jud equated it to a zoo with no  cages..    

 Jeff asked and had various responses about first impressions people got on the way into the  jungle. Marty has been named by two people as a early target, along with Jimmy J.

 The tribes weren’t seperated into young and old until they got to the beach and had searched for the Medallion of Power (MOP). BTW, the MOP isn’t  the bust, but an ornate cross with a black and gold cloth rope.

 After Brenda found the MOP, they came back and Jeff remade the tribes into young and old.

The La Flor tribe is made up of 30 year olds and younger while the Espada is made up of 40 and older people. My first impression of the older “Antique tribe is most don’t look like they could make it 30 days with without comps to wear them down. The young guns look very athletic but do have some nieve looking girls. And then we have “Fabio”. That’s what Jud’s tribemates are calling him.

 After the MOP was given out, Jeff explained they could keep it or trade for flint and fishing gear and the La Flor took the merchandise and gave away the MOP saying they needed to make fire early and have gear to fish with.

 Back at the La Flor Camp:

 Kelly B.’s artificial leg was noticed so see called the tribe together and showed everyone her prosthesis.  Brenda plans on flirting to get ahead if she has to. Sash seems cocky and pretty confident that the  younger group will kick butt in the game.  The guys notice that Jud aka Fabio is kinda goofy., he does seem liike a flaky dude to me. Nanonka seems like she could have  a little bitchy attitude at times.

Alina and Kelly B. find the first clue to an HII and hide the clue in a tree till later. The clue seems cryptic and I don’t think they understand it at all.

 Meanwhile at the Senior Citizen Center:

 Jimmy J. was sick from overworking himself on day1.

Espada seems to have all alpha males and I foresee some major disagreements. during the times when  they struggle.

 It was not shown if the older guys found the HII clue when they got their tree mail.

 When the tribes got to the Immunity Challenge it wqs revealed that the Conquistador bust is actually the Team Immunity Idol and not part of the MOP that most people from previews assumed.

The challenge was simple. Fill a half barrel with water by pouring water down gutters held by team members until the barrel fills and drops your puzzle pieces. The Espada had a chance to use the MOP and get a 1 bucket of water head start put in their barrel but decided not to use it. The La Flor tribe finished first but only by 10 seconds and were able to start their puzzle first. The Espada women doing the puzzle struggled way too much and lost to the La Flor tribe. La Flor wins the first Immunity Challenge.

 Back at camp the talk centers on evicting Jimmy J or Wendy Jo. At Tribal Council the usual discussion takes place and people remark about Wendy and Jimmy J. Just before they go to vote, Wendy speaks up and wants to make a statement which further seals here fate. In a 9-1 vote (essentially unanimous) Wendy becomes the first to be evicted. Her Husband was correct!!

 My early prediction is that more than half of the older tribe will be gone before the merge which should happen around week 8 or 9. and the young guns will dominate the final 4 or 5 people. It’s going to be a tough road for the old folks to win this year.

So here’s to all the BB folks who came on over to Survivor and we hope you enjoy the show and the    blog!

Early insight to Survivor: Nicaragua

From early photos taken it appears the La Flor women plan on being stylish in their hip neon bikinis.

Hot Mama's in the young gun tribe.

 

In the diametrically opposite style come the Espada women who are in their Friday casual wear.

Cool, Calm and way to normal looking!

For the ever so misunderstood Medallion of Power which will become known as the “MOP”, E!Online called it “some godawful contrived twist”. Also, people are saying that it’s a bust of a Conquistador that looks like Russell Hantz!

What do you think?

Notable characters to keep track of this year begin with:

Kelly Bruno / La Flor
25 yr old med student
An amputee since a childhood disease cost her a leg
She plans on hiding the fact and then surprising everyone at the first challenge by putting on a specially made prosthetic leg made specifically for Survivor.
Buckle your seat belts y’all. We appear to be in for a wild ride at least to start the show!

The Medallion of Power!

The newest twist to Survivor this year will be the “Medallion of Power”. It is being said that it will give a distinct edge to the team that uses it in an immunity challenge. However, if used the ownership is turned over to the other tribe. This will definately be an interesting item in the game play. Also, the HII’s (Hidden Immunity Idols) are  said to be better hidden so that even Russell would not be able to find them without clues! We shall see.

OK, thanks to BBBlogger we now have an updated header and gameplayer photos. So a big thanks to the man with the plan.

Lets get ready for this seasons “Rumble in the Nicaraguan Jungle”.

Wow, 2 hours of non-stop yawning! IMHO!!!

 

My personal thoughts on the first night of Survivor 20 Heroes vs. Villains was more like a high school reunion and everyone is trying to impress everyone else, except Sugar who for some reason was totally out of her element. After basically being ignored by everyone especially Colby, she just wasn’t all there. Maybe she needed to go to exile island and stay out of the way of the crowd. (No there isn’t an exile island on Samoa). I believe that there were more first day alliances made in the history of Survivor, and I believe in the next few weeks that there will be more broken alliances once the positioning begins. The rivalry between the tribes was set into motion with the first challenge. Complete and utter chaotic violence that almost sent 2 people home. I think the challenges should be physical but not violent. Stress more puzzle solving with a physical challenge in every competition before we get into a downright war with these challenges that allow contact.  If that first challenge was an NFL game there would have been penalties for Holding, Roughing the QB, Unsportsmanlike contact ( removing an opposing players clothes), and probably a few more we never saw on camera.

I was actually bored for most of the 2 hour special episode. I know they spent time letting viewers getting used to who the characters are, but pleaseeeeeeeeee, show some more action around the camps, what the hell is everyone up to. I know Russell had to be looking for the HII, so lets see him searching. Show Rob more with his pissed off attitude of no one wanting to help build the camp. C’mon man, lets get some bullshit going out there.  I know a lot of you won’t agree with me, BUT, i want some action. Hell the Village People with no flint started a fire easier the Hoho’s with flint.

OK, some info from the snake pit.  I probably won’t post daily this season since we only have a show 1 day a week. However if I get some special news or I just get an itch i’ll put something up. Thats all for now, before I really tell you how I feel about the Village People and the Hoho’s.

Can James get mean and win this time?

‘Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains’: Which woman is going to stab James in the back this time?

Poor James. The dude had two hidden immunity idols in his possession and still got voted out in China. Then he watched Parvati disintegrate his fearsome foursome alliance in Micronesia while blindsiding Ozzy. >>>>>Full Story

Oh so close she has come to winning!

Heroes Tribe

Amanda Kimmel, China and Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites 
Heroism: The two-time runner-up [placing third in China and losing 5-3 to Parvati in Micronesia burned many with her disloyalty—except Ozzy. As tribemate Cirie noted at one point, “I think we will be getting pregnancy announcements from Amanda about the little Ozzlets on the way.”
Outwitticism:
“We could be worst enemies, or we can become allies.”

Danielle the Backstabber!

Danielle DiLorenzo, Exile Island
Villainy: Aside from being hot and actually finishing in second place, Danielle is not the most memorable of the Castaways. She qualifies as a villain for betraying her alliance with Terry and taking Aras instead to the final Tribal Council.
Outwitticism: “There’s a million dollars at stake and I’m not gonna take somebody because I made a promise to them,” Danielle rationalized. “I’m gonna take someone who I think I have a better chance of beating.”

A view from a window!

‘Survivor: Samoa’ recap: Cannibals on the loose!

Instead of devouring their common enemy, the members of Galu begin eating their own

By Dalton Ross | Nov 06, 2009
 
Thats Daltons view. From my window all I see is a parking lot. A bunch of cast-a-way butts sitting around wondering what to do with no leader to guide them. Russell could lead them down the road to destruction but he is short! Short in numbers that is. Bimbo is totally lost, where the hell did her common sense go let alone and brain function. I guess once you leave the Marines there is no one to guide you.
Dave Balldhead, combover some of that mullet and protect your brain Mr Genius. Start using the old noggin and work some Survivor bullshit on the girls and getsome votes backing your ideas.
Da’ Boys could be a big  factor going down the road, if they don’t get spazy! 
Ahhhh, the girls, Hoochie and Sleazy, just go down to the beach and work on the tans, you’ll get voted out soon enough.
Jaison, Jaison, Jaison and Mick, get Foa Foa rounded up, get Bimbo to allign with y’all and start picking offthe Purple People Eaters while they are “Dazed and Confused”.
It’s a game people, lets “Play” some games. Lets backstab, lets lie and occaisonally outplay the other bozo’s that are still in the game. I believe Kelly has a chance to make F4 if she stays out of harms way. Russell, John and maybe Sleazy to the F4. We shall see what waits on the shores of Samoa and Eric waits for a Ponderosamate.
Natalie could be a wildcard and her alliance with somone could be big.
