Survivor: Fans v Faves - The Finale!

I can't even believe it's finale night already. This season of Survivor has gone way too fast for me, but don't they all? In addition to being a treat because of the faves aspect, for me it was just a nice break in the midst of the BB madness every week...

...and then there's the female empowerment aspect of the whole thing. These women definitely outplayed, outlasted and outsmarted their male counterparts... especially last week - Ouch! Gotta love it. Finally! Who are you rooting for tonight?

See ya in the comments... :) It's going to be a long night of Survivor! Yayyyy!

hi meredith :) i'd love that too... or Cirie.. or Parv... in that order

Three hour finale! Geez what did Mark Burnett do that Grodner hasn't done?

Hiya everybody btw!

5:05 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Hi Mo! :)

I know... Burnett rocks the ratings. No great mystery there. ;) I think Survivor's always gotten a 3 hour finale, no?

5:06 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

I'm hoping Cirie is last woman standing tonight. She's definitely been puppetmaster this season.

5:07 PM

Mo - Big time.

I'm here! Hehe hi everyone!

Go Amanda and Cirie!

Blogger MoNYC said...

I really can't recall it being 3 hours. In my memory, the first hour has been on the island and the second live at reunion. Three hours is like some AI-type finale.

5:09 PM

Yayy! Hi Genie! :)

I'm so glad you're all here.

Hi Genie Meredith Caro and other finale watchers. =D

5:10 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

I think it's always 2 hours for the show, then the hour of post show QnA... used to be with Bryant Gumble, now with Jeff Probst.

5:10 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

This game is good! They show those BB women a thing or two about competing! Woo!

5:10 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Yeah these women are downright Amazons in comparison to the BB. I feel like the only woman that could maybe hang on Survivor Island is Janelle.

5:13 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Maybe Daniele Donato too - she rocked the comps.. but she'd have to gain 15 pounds before she went to the island, for her own safety...

5:14 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

At the very least Survivor China was 2 hours: http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/cbs-announces-survivor-china-finale-reunion-show-air-dec-16-5953.php

5:15 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

True true. Dani Donato has the athleticism and the ability to withstand potentially uncomfortable, tense, awkward dynamics what with living in a house that includes your estranged father.

Hello everyone!

Happy Mother's Day. My two doggies gave me a great present -- My son called.

5:19 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

In BB competitions Natalie did pretty well too. I wasn't necessarily a fan but got to give her that.]

Wooo! Amanda one step closer!

5:20 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Yesss! Great Challenge.. SOoooo Happy Amanda won it.

She would've been the most obvious elimination had Natalie won immunity.

Phew.

5:21 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Hiya piper, Carolyn, Mo, and meredith!

It's ladies at the dish too tonight! hehe

5:21 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Awww - Hi Piper :) Happy Mother's Day!

5:21 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Genie - Seems appropriate, no? ;)

5:22 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Amanda has won.... if she can get the other women to vote out Cirie. She'll win against Parv or Nat. If they leave Cirie in the game, I think she'll beat any of the other three.

5:22 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Yes Caro, Amanda would have been eliminated tonight without immunity.

It didn't look like she was going to win it, but she did!

I love the Survivor challenges so much more than a lot of the BB ones.

5:23 PM  
Blogger piper said...

I would prefer Amanda to win with Cirie 2nd.

5:24 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Happy Mama's day. My kids* got me up really early then made me feed them and clean up after them.

And my momma's a vacay in Florida. =)

5:25 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

It certainy is appropriate Caro!

So true Mo, unfortunately their best bet is to vote out Cirie at this point.

Hi Carolyn,
I so agree....

Hi Monyc,,,, I have my friends texting me to find out the out come..I have been sending out this blog site all day..lol I love this..All you gals rock.

5:35 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Again.. PHEW!!

I was really concerned for Cirie there...

5:36 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

YES! Phew!

And uh, it's so obviously going to be F2 this season, if only because they haven't done the eliminated tribe mate ceremony.

5:37 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

and good job Natalie - Excellent sport!

5:37 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Bye Natalie...

I'm glad Cirie is still in the game! Woo!

I just think all these women kick butt!

I was so shocked last week when Erik gace up that neckless.James is right erik is the dumbest survivor ever..Poor kid..Had no chance with those 4 women..I don't understand why the forget,,Out Last,Out WIT and Out Play..

5:37 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

You're so right Meredith. I think people underestimate the power of the mind! Especially in women.

5:39 PM

i want Amanda or Parvati to win!! i think they played amazing.

5:39 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Erik seems really sweet, naive, and a tad immature. He's like Survivor's Kaysar.

5:40 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

They are reaching their breaking points. It's got to be nerve wracking. :(

5:42 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Poor Erik. He didn't know he was swimming with the sharks. I'm still flabbergasted at his incredibly naive move last week.

5:44 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Geez. Fairplay. That feels like ages ago. Mary who?

5:48 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

What kind of through me for a loop is that Erik is supposed to be the biggest survivor fan. Jeff looked a be amazed when he said Eirk the tribe has spoken.

5:49 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Pretty sure Amanda has this. Ahh the nerves, I can't even imagine what it must've felt like to compete in it.

6:06 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

That's it. Amanda has it!

6:09 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Well, I gotta give them credit for creating a truly fair final immunity challenge...

6:11 PM  
Blogger piper said...

Oh no! Cirie came so close! I think she would have taken Amanda with her, but I'm not so sure what Amanda will do. My guess is that she will not take Cirie. Hope I'm wrong.

6:12 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Good for Amanda. I think that considering that, as she said, she's pretty much played this game two times consecutively and both instances she's made it to F2 then she definitely deserving. She's an MVP of sorts.

6:12 PM

Survivor challenges are bs free, I have noticed.

Blogger N2RealityTV said...

Howdy Ms C and all Survivor lovers!

Balls!!!

Amanda just won final immunity and I have sneaky suspicion she's taking Parvati with her to the end.

Amanda knows Parvati doesn't have many friends on the jury.

PS - That was one lucky chicken they let loose!

;)

6:14 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

If I were her (and I'm a Cirie fan so that definitely influences), I'd vote by the final immunity. In other words, Parv should go because she was first out. But of course, that's not in Amanda's best interest.

6:14 PM  
Anonymous meredith said...

EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Way to go Amanda!!!!

6:15 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

"She pissed way more people off than I did"

That was dumb. I hope it costs her her game. Hee hee hee!

6:17 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Parv: "She pissed way more people off than I did."

Umm, girl? What are you thinking saying things like that?

6:17 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

lol Mo. Great minds!

6:17 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Amanda also has to remember that Cirie can also work her magic as a member of the jury and could influence the way the tribe members cast their votes.

6:19 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

If Eliza rolls her eyes anymore they will plop off.

Does the jury seem very grim tonight? Notice that Natalie didnt want to look at them?

Come on pick Cirie!

6:22 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Awww. I'm so sad she picked Parv. Just could never like that girl.

6:25 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Ok... all those tears had me thinking she was voting Parvati out...

I'm sad to see Cirie out, since she masterminded the whole game, but I do believe Amanda just guaranteed herself the win.

6:25 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

I agree Caro. Was the best move she could make gamewise. Wish Cirie could win something though. :(

6:26 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Yep, A's gut was and has been right.

I wish they give Cirie that jury prize though.

6:27 PM  
Blogger Cliff O'Neill said...

Jus' poppin' in. ...

So sorry to see Ceire go, but I knew that if she didn't win immunity, she'd go out in third place again.

:-(

6:29 PM  
Anonymous Meredith said...

Does anyone think that Mark will give,Jonathon and James anything because they got hurt and could not finish the game?

6:29 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Hey Cliff! :)

Nice to see you! Hope you had a great time at the show.

6:30 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

These women are stunning au natural. Do you think they have them fill out questionaires, then hand them noxzema and tissues and ask to see them sans makeup?

6:31 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

meredith - hmm.. i dunno. i don't think so.

6:32 PM

Ladies and gents, we have "under the bus"!

Drink!

6:34 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Mo - lol. I agree... It's funny, when they brought in the jury at final 4, i was thinking the same thing, and how much prettier I found Natalie minus makeup...

6:35 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Cliff - hehehe

6:37 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Do they tell the jury members not to smile during the speeches and q&a?

6:37 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

genie - i don't think so... but I was very surprised by Cirie's expression throughout.

6:38 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

The jury look like the grim reapers. Brrrr.

6:40 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

I would be soooo bitter if I was her. I mean think about how fresh her wound is... I bet her torch is still smoking.

6:40 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

true, Mo.

6:41 PM  
Blogger piper said...

Monyc you are so right about the women being stunning au natural. But I'm not jealous! Oh who am I kidding? I am envious. I'm blonde with blonde eyelashes and eyebrows! But then the night shots would be better, right? I would love to play survivor but I think I'm too old for the viewing audience.

6:42 PM

I hear the bus...

6:44 PM  
Blogger GenieSea said...

Is Natalie on some medication? Umm, hello? WTH did that question come from?

6:46 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

All I know is that I would need my own personal waxer for these potentially ruly brows, a caseload of contact solution and hair gel.

Nat's questions = appropriate?s

6:47 PM  
Blogger Cliff O'Neill said...

Ooh, "under the bus"!

Drink! hic

Nat had the hots for Parv! Iiiiinteresting. And here I thought Kathy was a queer!

Man! Cirie lost at least 25 pounds this time around...

Awwwww gotta love a romance! Ozzy's speech to Amanda was so sweet, coming on the heels of him tearing Parv to bits...

6:54 PM

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Btw, I think that it's Amanda's win. I think they're just venting and giving them a hard time. But that it was pretty much a given.

Oh My G-D!

I'm stunned.

7:05 PM

SERIOUSLY Cliff you said it.

Oh and Amanda got those earrings from a vendor in Union Square.

Parvati should have won on outfit and makeup alone.

WOW! Shocker!

7:06 PM

I don't want to believe it!

7:06 PM

Ok. That was the final blindside!

I heart SYTYCD!

7:06 PM

SYTYCD =??

7:07 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

I bet it was Cirie that decided it. Well then again, Parv had all those faves that she became friends with on the jury. I bet that totally worked in her favor too.

7:08 PM

Oh well, Amanda has Ozzie! Gotta look at the positive...

Blogger N2RealityTV said...

Wowsa! That was a complete shocker.

I thought for certain Amanda had it in the bag. Maybe if she had taken Cirie ... nah ... Cirie would've won it.

I feel sorry for Amanda, but it looks like her sad dog puppy eyes only work for Ozzie. Soon we might here the little patter of ozzlettes running around though.

Thanks again for a wonderful blog experience!

I was glad that Cirie, Parv, and Amanda stayed together til the end, but I was very happy that Parvati won! :)

I wanted any of them but mean ol' fake boobed Natalie (is it something in the name?!) But, I did prefer Parv or Cirie to Amanda. There's something about her I didn't love. But, the Ozzy stuff was CUTE! :)
