Survivor Episode 3

Happy Survivor Day Everyone! :)

If I suddenly pass out mid way through my blog on tonight's show, blame my trainer. We went after my abs with a vengeance this afternoon - it's sooo not gonna be pretty tomorrow morning... but it should be smokin hot in a couple months. ;)

Anyhow, in the meantime, please feel free to comment on episode 3 here while it's airing. :) And I'll most likely be bloggin' during the commercials. :)

OK.. Sequence #1: Setting up Jean-Robert for the fall.

The edit on sequence one focused on Jean-Robert's perceived inappropriate behavior during sleeping hours, and ended with Leslie commenting that "Jean-Robert really doesn't understand the social game. If we ever go to tribal council, he's out."

The Reward Challenge

Excellent and again very physical. James' physical superiority is extremely evident - as if there was ever any doubt.

Ironically, Leslie's weakest link status is evident beyond her own team, as she provided Zhan Hu with their first competition win, and they chose to "kidnap" her over to their side. Leslie comes back talking about how much she has in common with people on the other tribe, and setting her tribe mates on edge about her potential for disloyalty post-merge.

Jean-Robert & James' "Private" Talk
Todd.. Todd, Todd.. Can we not refer to people as trash? Please? Todd and Courtney overheard/eavesdropped on a conversation between James and Jean-Robert that was both game related and very locker room in nature.. and a whole lot about Courtney... and James having a crush on her.

Immunity Challenge
Courtney completely blew it for Fei Long, practically handing the immunity challenge to Zhan Hu on a silver platter. Completely. The rest of the tribe worked the challenge so well, they almost made up for her, but not quite.

So... Fei Long goes to tribal council tonight for the first time. Will Courtney's social game make up for her utter failure during the challenge? Will Todd's manipulations make Courtney's social game irrelevant?

I'm not telling till the west coast sees it, but I'm sure someone in the comments section will.

All in all, really good third episode.

Best. Challenge. YET!

I loved that the first challenge. I was at the edge of my chair. I hadn't seen a comp as thrilling since fast forward week on Big Brother.

8:29p- Ooooh drama at Fei Long!

I love how seamless the editing is! From Leslie's comment about Fei Long's cynicism on Christianity to James and Jean Robert's words about Christians being the biggest sinners.

I can't believe Todd's saying James needs to go. Does he and skinny Minnie think they have the strength and stamina to win those physical comps and do all the heavy lifting around comp?

8:40pm: I think it's Jean-Robert v. Courteney.

8:55pm: One out of two is not bad. =) Sister Christian (my money's on James for that one) and Mom, lol.

Other comments:

Um, yeah, it's true. Most people look better with clothes on. The human body is just not that attractive. Nice to see real looking people on TV, but the circumstances make them look, well, kinda scary.

And ...

What is it with the freeze frames?! I figured they were channeling kung fu movies, but for a while there I thought I was watching an old episode of Mannix!

Cliff- That's funny :)

Personally I think Jean-Robert is just gross. I would not want him thinking it was okay to put his hands anywhere near me. He would draw back a stump if he tried that night time stuff with me.

Once again James rocked the comp. I like him alot.

I really don't like Mr. It's not Rocket Science. What is with his eyes? Creepy.

Evel Girl - you 'bout covered it for me too, exactly. Especially Mr. It's Not Rocket Science!! ...real creepy.

It was a good show this week! Glad Leslie is gone, but it was a real close toss-up for me. She was on just one additional nerve of mine, than John-Robert!

I'm going to have to go back and listen to that conversation between James & Jean-Robert again... I didn't hear what Carolyn did.

Gotta feelin' next weeks competitions won't be so, ahh physical. Poor Courtney. I'm glad she spoke up for herself though.

Well, I saw on the monkey cam feeds overnight that Frosti is secretly sneaking over to the other pants and rigging the secret spigots to spurt on people's faces!

I just know that that won't make it to the CBS show! It's such a conspiracy for him to win! They tell them in the Jungle Confessionals who to target and vote out you know!

You just don't get the same perspective if you don't have the monkey cam feeds, people!

OK, I have nothing by love for Todd. Someone who is playing Survivior and actually thinking 3 steps ahead. So sorry Monyc, James is the biggest threat to anyone once they make it to individual immunity - so don't be surprised if he is gone before the merge or right after.

I cannot imagine anyone playing the game strategically not seeing that one a mile away. I could be wrong, but knowing how the game is played I think in the next few weeks I will be proven right.

Warning - long! I never could say anything very succinctly.

Firstly - LOL at Cliff and his overnight report! Dan, I'm with you.........James is the biggest target of them all!

Ewwww scale hits 10 on Survivor! (Whether you were grossed out by J-R's sleeping habits and attitude or by Dave's attitude and him dropping trou, the scale zoomed upward at an alarming rate.)

WHO does J-R think he is when all he's done since the show started is sleep, eat, complain about what others find to eat, and gross the gals out when he sleeps by them?, she asks with sympathetic ewww shivers. He should have gone even before Courtney, and let's face it, girlfriend weighed less than the machete she was trying to wield. CBS really should have weight requirements for safety reasons. Even though Courtney darn near lost the competition for Fei Long, they made up her loss and Todd was ready to take down the other tribe UNTIL J-R kept getting in his way and lost it for them. Brawn never has equaled brains!

I'm going to have to rewatch the part where J-R and James are talking because I didn't understand all that was said (talkative teenager to thank for that), and I was just sitting there hoping my man James wasn't stooping to J-R's level. First time James has said more than 5 words and I'd hate to think they were nasty ones to match the likes of J-R.

Next week on Survivor:

*Will we hear either Denise or Erik speak?
*Will Sherea at least try to see if the buff might stretch enough to help her cover her ample chest? (Granted, her bra looks industrial strength but everything has its limits.)
*Will poor but fun Jaime think to look up to see the HII so obviously displayed that she'll feel stupid if/when she doesn't find it? (If that thing was 'hidden' any lower, a few of them would have hit their heads on it already-LOL!)
*Will the Fei Long tribe find a clue and vote out Jean-Robert? Will the women finally reach their level of disgust for him and snuff his flame, disregarding any worth he may have to the tribe?
*Will the Zhan Hu tribe wisen up and vote out Dave, who should have gone week one instead of Ashley? Will he realize he's a 'former' model and alot of us didn't want to see that much of him even 'when' he was in better shape? Will he hopefully realize how offensive his condescending attitude is?
And finally.........
*Will the Reward Challenge be for clothes? (I ask this with much hope. So far Survivor China may be heading for the alltime record on fuzz outs-LOL!)

Okay, off to watch J-R & James in the river talking. Oh yeah, and another thing that made me wanna slap the stupid off J-R is when he told Todd that he needed to go take a bath.........HUH??? Can ya tell who my least favorites are?-LOL!! Sorry, there were just so many duh moments on last nights show that I'm still fired up.

And does anyone else think that if they didn't blur/didn't have to blur naughty bits/body hair/upper and lower cleavage, it would look less disturbing? (I think it would be so.)

Freeze Frame!

Blogger Evel Girl said...

I am in so many ways thankful we didn't have to experience Mr. Rocket Science's "beaker" during the comp. I can sleep better knowing that little blur was there. Now some of the others I wouldn't mind seeing a little more of. ;)

Okay, it seems I'm not the only one that had a hard time deciphering the river conversation between Perv-Robert and James. Here's the 10 minute youtube clip that starts with the river scene and continues through the Immunity Challenge. The first 2:30 minutes is the part in question; decide for yourself. I thought it was still very hard to hear James.

Courtney's tribe would have caught up if J-R wouldn't have tried to help Todd the way he did......slap!!

Deb- I went back and watched that again and I didn't hear James say anything bad in his response to JR's comment about a million and some ass, all I heard from him was "Naw" and "Nasty ass" something or other. The only disgusting stuff I heard was from Jean-Robert. So I still think that James is a good guy...he just was overheard having a conversation with a moron. Todd and Courtney kind of grouped those two together because James was there and they heard what JR said.

3:00 PM  
Blogger Deb in WA said...

Phew, thanks Evel Girl. I just couldn't hear it well enough to say one way or another but I was sure hoping it was just a case of James going along to get along.

I so can't wait for Jean-Robert to go. I've heard him called so many names on other forums, but my faves are walrus and hippo because that's what he sounds like when he snores; and because of his 'small belly'-LOL!!

Where's our Carolyn? Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Blogger MoNYC said...

Right Evel Girl, I was just going to say that too. I think James was humoring J-R more than anything else.
