Survivor: Blood vs. Water - December 4 Episode Blog Party


Ohhh! From the promos, it looks like tonight's Tribal Council vote will result in a stubborn tie! That means all of the castaways will pick a rock, the one with a rock of a certain color will go home. Now, that hasn't been done but once before in all the seasons the show's been on the air.

In Survivor: Marquesas, Paschal English selected the Purple Rock and got the boot even though he had NEVER even had a vote in any Tribal Council at that time. I'm calling it "certain color" rather than Purple Rock (which we've referred to over the years) as it seems to me the promo is saying white. We'll see.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest! As always, the real party will be in the comments area. Come join in with us cool kids!

Before we get started ... Lifeguard Laurie's latest pool standings are as follows:

Pool People
CIERA -- Andrea J, Karen in CA, Rochelle
GERVASE -- Jackie, Pam in NJ
HAYDEN -- Joanie, Quixotic Elf
KATIE -- David, Margo, Zoetawny
MONICA -- Becky, KayBeeRN, Russ
TYSON -- Delee, meb

Redemption Island
TINA -- Cheryl in NC, Lynn1, Terry in TX
LAURA M -- AlbGlinka, JOKATS, rbennie
CALEB -- Glenn, ORKMommy

Jury
ARAS -- Donna in FL, MikesGirl
VYTAS -- Donna NY, ML

Survivor fans ready?

Heh. Hayden mentioned that Tyson will win it all. Then, prior to the duel, Caleb called out Tyson and Gervase as liars. The duel is building a house of cards. Laura wins. Dang, she is good at challenges! Argh! Caleb was just about there when his whole stack went down. Grr. I liked him. Tina and Laura remain at Redemption. Laura decides to give the Immunity Idol clue to Ciera. Ciera keeps it this time.

Ciera reads the clue with her buddies Gervase, Tyson, and Monica. Hayden and Katie are on the outs.

Aw, Tyson cried. Too bad, so sad. ARGH! And, he found the idol!

Immunity Challenge -- Race through obstacles balancing a ball on a pole, poles get longer, then throw sandbags at target. Reward is an ice cream party.

OMG! Gervase won immunity! Is that a first or what? He chooses Monica (his closest competitor and she gave up burgers) and Tyson.

Hayden tries to convince Ciera and Gervase that they need to blindside Tyson tonight. His chances don't look good.

If Ciera was a wishbone, she would have been torn in half in Tribal, Hayden tried to convince her that she would be number four in the Tyson alliance; Tyson tried to keep her.

The tally: No idol played -- Hayden, Hayden, Monica, Monica, Hayden, Monica. It's a tie. The revote -- only for Hayden or Monica.

Re-vote: Monica, Hayden, Monica, Hayden.

Another tie, Purple Rock time! Monica and Hayden are SAFE! Ciera, Katie and Tyson draw rocks, this time it's the white rock. Katie goes to Redemption.

HI EVERY ONE!!! Thank you Jackie for hosting us!

Jackie said...

Hey, Penny! Tonight should be good!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks.

Interesting tribal tonight. I'd like to just skip the first 45 minutes. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

What is Gervais saying....this is all Tyson.

Good for Hayden.

Joe in NY said...

As much as Monica is a deserving badass, I'd like to see Karma bite her in the ass.

Nickelpeed said...

What your back Hayden. What he says is right. If Tyson gets to the end, he will win.

Joe in NY said...

Why does Gervase look confused? Was he not in on Tyson's lie about voting out Ciera?

Nickelpeed said...

That's right Caleb. You can't believe anything Tyson and Gervais say.

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie, Penny and Joe!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Penny, Joe and Monty plus everyone else who arrives.

The promos did make it look good.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. Laura is way ahead. Really good.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't get why Tyson, Gervais and Ciera have such a strong bond. Well, conniving people attract each other.

Joe in NY said...

If Laura reenters, will she oust her daughter? LOL. Or will Ciera toss her out again.

monty924 said...

Way to go, Laura!

Nickelpeed said...

Same with Monica.

Becky said...

Doesn't look good for Tina.

monty924 said...

OUCH

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, no! That sucks.

Nickelpeed said...

Darn it.

monty924 said...

Sad to see Caleb go :(((

Becky said...

WOW! Poor Caleb. I really like him. Unlike his partner in every way.

monty924 said...

Lol, I love Caleb!

Nickelpeed said...

I think Ciera will oust her mom again if she reenters the game.

Becky said...

I do hope Cierra does not find the idol.

Becky said...

Or win the II.

Nickelpeed said...

Hayden has to win the Immunity Idol or I think he's gone. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

She is so unloyal to her group. She'd rather hang Hayden and Katie out to dry. Wow.

Come on Hayden, find it.

Ugh, you missed it!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Don't tell me, he finds it???? UGH

Becky said...

I know that Hayden is in trouble. I hope those are worthless tears. Damn!

monty924 said...

Aw, Tyson has a soft side. He's played a good game but will likely get Hantzed in the end. Oh well!

Nickelpeed said...

Fighting and clawing? Who is he kidding????

Dang it!!!! Why are they playing that music.

Yuck, in the crotch!!!!???? Because they won't question a bulge? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Nickelpeed said...

I think someone is helping him.

monty924 said...

LOL @ Penny

Nickelpeed said...

Tyson is walking funny. LOL I wonder how long he can walk like that without people wondering why.

Becky said...

Please don't let him draw the black rock. If Tyson doesn't play the Idol and draws a black rock will he be gone?

Nickelpeed said...

@Monty, Tyson is playing a rats game with three other rats. Who in the world would vote for the other 3? Monica is not likable and Ciera cut her own mother and team's throat. They won't vote for her.

Hayden has to win the Immunity Idol or he's gone.

Nickelpeed said...

UGH!!! UGH!!!

Not these 3. dang it!!!

Come on Hayden!!!

Nickelpeed said...

SHOOT!!!!

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Hello from San Diego where it's a cold 58 degrees and we are complaining like crazy!

Becky said...

Darn, Hayden! At least Tyson didn't win it!

Nickelpeed said...

You know who he's going to pick to share it with.

Nickelpeed said...

There goes Hayden....waaaaaaaaa

Jackie said...

Hey, Laurie. It will be in the 60s here tomorrow and everyone is thrilled.

David said...

Hi all ;-) Sounds like it is a good show. Can't wait for it to start in 25 min. Got a new HD system from Dish today for free. Been trying to get all my favorites set on the new system. Should be interesting seeing this in HD.

Nickelpeed said...

That is so sad about Tina's son. He died in a car accident yesterday. How very sad.

Becky said...

Wonder which one of Tyson's guys will flip. I don't think it will be Cierra.

Nickelpeed said...

Don't do it Hayden. She'll go back and tell them. She's a little brat. They will not vote Tyson. They will vote out Hayden.

No you do not Gervais.

This is going to be sad for Hayden. Dang it. They won't do it.

monty924 said...

That is sad, Penny! Godspeed!

Nickelpeed said...

I do not want to see Hayden voted out. With the women on RI, it's going to be very hard for him to overcome that. I'm sad.

Joe in NY said...

I'm dying to see the votes. They look solid 4 versus 2. Don't know how they end up tied.

monty924 said...

Gervase is killing me

Becky said...

How sad. I hadn't heard about Tina's son. Penny send me an email with details.

Joe in NY said...

Hayden is doing the best he can with a weak hand. The jury laughing helped him

monty924 said...

Rustle... it's lost on Tyson, LOL

Joe in NY said...

Gervase just set an all-time Survivor record for loudest vote. LMAO

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, I wish she would listen to Hayden, but she won't. I don't want to see Hayden at go to RI. Darn it!

I can see the final 3 be Tyson, Gervais and Monica. I'm bummed.

monty924 said...

LOVE

Nickelpeed said...

WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO

Joe in NY said...

This is the one of the most animated juries ever.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Cierra, tie it again!!!!

Joe in NY said...

This is where you really have to have big ones to NOT switch your vote since you are then in jeopardy.

Joe in NY said...

Aren't Hayden and Monica safe for the rocks.

monty924 said...

WEEEEEEEE

Petals said...

Hello everyone.
Sorry to be late.
Gary's meds make him very tired, so we go to bed around 8pm, CST.
I just missed you all & wanted to pop in to say "hey"!

I still despise Twiggy Tyson!
Hayden is still sexy, even all scruffy & Survivor-y :0
xoxox

Joe in NY said...

Odds favor Tyson here.

Nickelpeed said...

LOLOLOLOLOL

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, who goes? OMG!!!

monty924 said...

That was a bullet dodged...

Tyson gets my vote for A-hole of the year :)))

Joe in NY said...

You've still got an interesting chance if someone comes back from RI you'll be split again.

Becky said...

I am so disappointed.

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, Ciera didn't lose anything. She went from #4 to #4. Big deal.

Nickelpeed said...

Ooooh, poor Katie. Dang

Geeze, did he say that to her? One of the chairs are hers? What an arrogant man.

But, it still leaves everyone against Hayden and Cierra now. Bummer.

Joe in NY said...

Tyson always was a sore loser.

monty924 said...

Hey there, Petals. Give Gary a hug from us :)))

Becky said...

Have they made Ponderosa available?

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. Penny, I am sending out an update on Momma later.

monty924 said...

Yes, Becky. The Ponderosa videos are up. Haven't watched them yet, but they are up.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, as it is right now. Tyson, Gervais and Monica are strong. I wish it could have included Monica, too.

Jackie, thank you for hosting. Really appreciate it. Scratch Vincent's head for me.

See everyone Sunday!!!!

~~Silk said...

Haven't they had ties before, settled by fire starting? Why did they do away with the fire test and go to stones?

Petals said...

I'm fast-forwarding to Tribal. Hoping for some bad news for Twigface

Becky said...

What's up with Gary, Petals?

Becky said...

Just saw your update, Petals. Give him a TX hug. See you guys on Sunday. Thanks again, Jackie.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. See you all fine folks next week. Have a good one!

Petals said...

He's just a bit under the weather, Becky. :) thanks for asking. He;ll be ok.
I missed Tyson walking funny.. LOL

Jackie said...

Thank you all for coming by!

monty924 said...

The fire starting is only when it is down to three, Silk. It's rocks before then.
