I thought they only got Danni's vote? either way, bleh to this episode.

Between Brian acting all better than his group and Stephanie's whining, I had just about enough.

I was impressed with Brian's idea to keep Blake talking though....All he needed was for one person on that group to be irritated enough and they would be able to change the voting strategy until the merge. Now all pre-existing alliances are shot.

I love that both teams have broken their former alliances by one person each flipping their vote. I was dreading the same ol', same ol' Survivor crap of the majority of the merged tribemates picking off the other one.

DaisyLou2 at October 14, 2005 08:59 AM

Didn't they show during the credits that everyone except for Brandon voted for Blake?

Sara at October 14, 2005 09:05 AM

Well ... everybody except Brandon and Blake himself.

Hilarious post, Maggie. I like Brian...I like that he's playing the game and being purposeful with his actions. So I was glad to see Blake go. Talking about your girlfriend's double-D's on television...gross. Although I wonder if that will bite them in the ass later.

Last week I was talking about really liking Judd...I wish he would quiet down a bit now. I also wish Stephenie would stop complaining.

I was glad to see Blake go, he reminds me of every frat boy I ever hated.

I'm tired of hearing Stephenie whine, and I adore both Lydia and Brian right now.

Julie at October 14, 2005 09:51 AM

That was a great reference to Kriss Kross (daddy mack will make ya..). I was trying to place who she reminded me of, and that was it! Lydia is the best fishmonger everrrrrrr.

Talk about awesome reward! Right up there with the fridge full of coke. (I heart coke)

Well, it sounded like Stephenie is at least not whining to her tribe-mates. So, instead of bottling it up inside, she's sharing it with the camera man. Can't fault her for that.

Brian is annoying. So is Judd.

I'm for Amy at this point.

The Jamie/Bobby John preview scene cracked me up. Looked like something from Mutual of Omaha's wild kingdom.

yahtzee at October 14, 2005 10:14 AM

Yahtzee!! My thoughts exactly. I can't wait to see that scene in context.

Soosan at October 14, 2005 10:21 AM

I liked Judd in the begining. I was so happy when he went against his original team last week but now he just needs to keep his mouth shut. I wanted to slap him for going on and on about that challenge. He is annoying and a Yankee fan to boot.

DaisyLou2 at October 14, 2005 10:22 AM

My guess is that just about every member of an over-losing tribe whines and cries to the camera at some point. It's the editors that decide who and how much to show of this. And I can't shake the idea that the editors are going out of their way -- to our annoyance -- to drive home the fact that Steph is once again on a losing team. "Get it, viewers? GET THE IRONY???" Yes, we get it, move on please. Show me something new.

Anyway, I was starting to get bored with one team losing so much, so I'm glad they finally pulled off a win this time.

GeekBoy at October 14, 2005 10:25 AM

Just to clarify, when I said the vote was dumb, I meant specifically that it was dumb for the former members of Nakum because they had the majority over the original Yaxha and could have guaranteed themselves 3 more weeks even if they lost immunity every single week.

I thought it was great that Brian, Amy and Gary managed to pull off the power coup the very first tribal ceremony that they were in danger. Woop!

We watched Bobby Jon and Jamie scream and squawk at each other with their necks out, like some aggressive African birds, over and over again, howling with laughter. This must be the way the Alabama-Georgia rivalry is traditionally handled.

Maggie at October 14, 2005 01:17 PM

Round 2 of the Tosterone Olympics will be a game of Tractor Chicken, with BJ and Jamie facing off against each other in their souped-up John Deere's, a la Footloose.

GeekBoy at October 14, 2005 01:44 PM

stating the obvious here, but you guys crack me up!

Soosan at October 14, 2005 01:46 PM

Ooh whee...the Sunday shoes are gettin' a-kicked off!

Maggie at October 14, 2005 01:52 PM

I feel this ritual is a form of territorial display, marking their grounds as the ancient Mayans would.

Or maybe they are displaying their sexual prowess for the fair stephenie?

Or maybe it's just the deadly cocktail of testosterone and reality tv.

Soosan at October 14, 2005 01:56 PM

Heh, you said, "cock."

Maggie at October 14, 2005 02:00 PM


GeekBoy at October 14, 2005 02:25 PM

Brian just blushed.

yahtzee at October 14, 2005 02:26 PM

I feel so unclean, yet I can't wash off the filth.

Soosan at October 14, 2005 02:29 PM

Hey, you called Jamie "James" in the re-cap. No huge deal, but it did confuse mefor a couple of seconds. I agree that Judd was previously funny but now just needs to be quiet. Also getting sick of Steph's complaining, and I was a huge fan of hers last season.

Marie at October 14, 2005 03:44 PM

I thought I'd heard his teammates call him James, too. Sometimes people call me Margaret (which is my given name) and I turn around to see who they're talking to.

Maggie at October 14, 2005 03:50 PM

If I was Danni, I would have told Gary that I would vote with him against Blake only if he admitted who he truly was!!

Whining or not, losing or not, Stephenie sure is in a good position for the merge right now. With her & co. getting Judd to turn on his old tribemates and Brian & co. getting Danni & Bobby Jon to turn on their old tribemate, Stephenie seems like she'll have a LOT of friends when the tribes finally merge.
