Oh how I wish Survivor was on more than once a week!
Only 2 days to go and we will say goodbye to John. (sniff) Thanks to missyae, we have all kinds of tidbits on what is going to happen Thursday. Jaison finally wins a challenge thanks to whatever he gets at the auction. Good for him and about time! It looks like Monica gets something disgusting so can’t wait to see what that is and apparently for all you men, you can see Natalie looking good. (hubby is going to like that!)
Also, missyae let us know that there will be no letters or videos from home. Not sure why they decided to do that but I feel sorry for the castaways who are feeling home sick. They better suck it up and get over it because it is not happening this season. There will not be a car giveaway this year either.
Is it fair for the contestants to miss out on the opportunity to hear from their loved ones? What is the speculation on Monica’s reward and where did John go wrong with the four foas?
This week on Survivor Samoa, the reward challenge is going to be an auction like that had in Survivor Guatemala. Up for grabs? Possibly food, unwanted items, and the twist being an item to give an advantage in the immunity challenge. Not sure what this item is or how it may help someone in the IC. From the picture of John and Russell, it looks like someone got a bad reward.
The IC looks like an endurance challenge this week. The players stand on a board while holding onto a rope that is tied around another board. It looks like they have to keep this board from falling to the ground. Jaison is believed to be the winner of this challenge as the promo shows Russell seated next to him while he is wearing the immunity necklace.
According to missyae, we will say goodbye to John in this episode of Survivor. He went against his former tribemates of Galu last week and I am sure they want some revenge. Monica already didn’t care for him and he is a threat in the challenges, it seems that he is the logical choice. :( Yes, I will miss John.
What do yall think about the eviction of John and what is Russell’s next big move in the game?

I have to say that I was disappointed in the Recap episode. It once again turned into the Russell show and I don’t know why I thought it would be any different. The highlight for me was watching Erik set the trap for the chicken and Shambo catching it. That was a proud moment for them and they were so excited. Of course Russell didn’t let that last long and let them both loose. I wish we could have seen the expression on Erik’s face when he woke up the next morning and found them gone. They did throw in some air time for Shambo and I was surprised to see her break down, especially in front of Laura. I’m sure they have all had their breaking point on the show.
I did love it when they were all eating the papaya in secret and not sharing with the others. I mean come on, Erik cut down an entire tree. Where in the world do you hide a tree? They all appeared to have lost a significant amount of weight and have to be malnourished. I just hope they are getting enough water.
What did yall think about the show? Should they just do without the recaps all together? I don’t think they had much choice since it is a holiday. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and next week we are back on track with Episode 11 which looks really good by the previews.
After you eat your fill of turkey and dressing be sure to tune in tonight for “The First 27 Days” recap episode. We will see never before seen footage of Russell scheming against everyone after the merge. Hopefully we will get some insight into some of the players we don’t know very well. Maybe we can see the emergence of Natalie to the forefront since she is the projected winner this year. I don’t usually get into these type of shows however I have a feeling this year it is going to be better and different. Be sure to join in on the discussions right here before and after the program to see what everyone has to say about what goes on and discuss the previews for episode 11.
I am getting off the subject of Survivor just for today so I can tell you all Happy Thanksgiving!
Yes, I am a day early but wanted to share some thoughts about this wonderful holiday with all of you. I feel especially blessed this year. My family is healthy and happy. What more could I ask for? In the last couple of months, I had to watch two separate families bury their children. One was a precious two year old boy and the other a beautiful 19 year old girl. I can’t even begin to comprehend how they are going to get through tomorrow and the next month. I hope you all consider as you are celebrating with family and friends just how short life is and we are not guaranteed the next minute much less the next year. Those we are with this year may not be around for the next so take it all in and enjoy the moments that make up Thanksgiving. We all come from different backgrounds and different religious beliefs and maybe no religion at all but we can all come together and give thanks for all the little and big blessings in our life. Hold your loved ones tighter tomorrow and listen to the stories the older generation has to tell about the holidays they celebrated when they were younger. Find someone to share your own stories with and for those that have kids, give them a break tomorrow. Let them run wild and free and eat as much sweets as they want. It is only one day, you can get them back on track Friday. :) Let us all remember Fedup with the loss of her husband and what a difficult day this will be for her. We miss you girl! Check in with us sometime.
I will get off my ranting now and you all have a wonderful day tomorrow and eat as much food as you want! You can diet another day.
