Survivor Samoa Episode 2 – Even Better Than The First!!!

| September 25, 2009 at 11:37 AM EDT

Wow!  That is all I can say for the episode last night!  Sorry this is late but I was up for a while with my 2 new puppies and had lots to do this morning with them.  :razz: So much happened last night so I can only touch on a few so let’s get started.

First, Ben got thrown out of the challenge.  Jeff Probst stands by his decision but I don’t know if I necessarily agree with it.  What did he do that was so much worse then anyone else?  He kicked GRussell’s feet out from under him to stop him from getting the ball.  After watching Shambo head butt Liz, I thought what Ben did was pretty tame.  Granted Jeff did warn everyone about taking cheap shots and Ben did trip up GRuss right in front of him but I thought that it was the nature of the game to stop the other team from getting the ball.  :shock:

Second, we have the “big” confrontation between Yasmin and Ben.  I thought Ben was out of line in the personal attacks he was making against Yasmin.  I know the members of Foa Foa were put off by Yasmin’s speach and she did come across as a biotch for her “taking candy from a baby” statement but did Ben really have to take it to the level he did?  I don’t think so.  I thought he made himself look like a complete jerk on national television and lost a lot of fans and support that he may have otherwise had.

Third, can we have a drum roll please,  What about BRUSSELL??  I was actually really impressed with his decision to search for the immunity idol.  He even told his tribe members what he was doing and what did they do?  They just sat around as he looked for it right in front of them.  I thought it was a GREAT moment when he found the idol in the tree and hid it in his pants right in front of everyone.  Good for him!  I may regret saying this next week, but I did gain some respect and he and Jaison are now my two favorites on the show. :twisted:   However, I am stating this before I have really gotten to see much of Galu.

Fourth, we saw the loss of two members of Foa Foa.  Mike had to leave for health reasons which I think is an absolute shame because he really kicked butt in the challenge.  He was tackling people and throwing them down and was really an asset to his team.  I felt bad for him and hated to see him go.  I wish that since Mike had to leave they could have left it at that but unfortunately there was a tribal council and Betsy got voted out.  I will let someone else touch on this in another blog because I really didn’t care for her and I know most of you really liked her so I will leave it for now. :oops:

What did everyone think about the show?  Do you think Ben is worse then BRuss?  Did Yasmin overstep her bounds and was Ben justified in his behavior toward her?

Last night on Survivor Samoa 2 castaways were eliminated. Mike was removed from the game due to low blood pressure and Betsy was voted out after her team, Foa Foa, lost again in the immunity challenge.

Feel free to use this post for commentary and discussion on last night’s episode.


Watch Survivor Samoa – Episode 2 – Tonight 8ET

| September 24, 2009 at 9:00 AM EDT

Hello Everyone!  It seems like it has been FOREVER since the premiere of Survivor Samao.  We were introduced to all the new players, said good bye to Marissa, and watched as Brussell became the most evil man in Survivor history. :evil:

Tonight we will see the competition where Jeff Probst, for the first time, throws someone out of a challenge.  The rumor mill is alive and running with Ben at the top of the list as the one cast out.  I hope he is not the reason for one of the girls bleeding as we saw in the commercial.

We have all been anxiously waiting to see the return of BRussell.  What is he going to do next?  By the commercial it looks like he is hiding something, possibly the flint?  This guy will stop at nothing to sabotage is tribe.  What is his problem???  I will NEVER understand this kind of strategy.

What do yall think?  Does Yasmin really visit Foa Foa and does she get a clue to the immunity idol?  Which team faces the Tribal Council and who is the next castaway evicted?  Find out tonight at 7C/8E. 

Share your thoughts. :roll:


Survivor Samoa – Episode 2 Preview Video

The Russell Hantz Factor

So we have all seen the first episode of Survivor and the only thing I can think about is…


I could not believe it when he sabotaged his tribe’s water and burned Jaison’s socks!  Wow!  What other contestant has ever gone against their tribe?  I mean, come on!  They are there to help you win challenges and form alliances and move you forward in the game. 

This year instead of Foa Foa vs. Galu; it’s Russell H. vs. EVERYONE.  The only redeeming quality I can find in the most villainous man in Survivor history is the fact that he is going to do GREAT in the challenges.  He is a force to be reckoned with!  He kicked a$$ in the first competition and worked his tale off in the second.  For this reason alone, I believe he will be around for a while.  He is an extremely confident person and even though he already has the distrust of Betsy the police woman, it seems he has a good start with Jaison, the law student.  If he manages not to get caught doing his dirty deeds and sticks with Jaison, we could have us some amazing entertainment for a while. 

Being a self made millionaire by owning an oil company, he is showing that he is not scared of hard work and is an intelligent man.  The oil and gas industry is a particularly cut throat business where you have to understand the power of persuasion along with remaining deceptively secretive.  Most of you know that I work in this industry so I can appreciate the level of stress he must feel on a daily basis which will result in his ability to do well in the game.

What do yall think about his strategy and how far do you think he will get???
