"Chase needs to grow a pair"

Every Wednesday night as I sit down to watch Survivor, I have a pen and paper handy so that I can write down a few things I want to put in my blog. I had three different choices written down for a possible title and they were all good ones, but I couldn't help myself. I had to go with a quote from Benry (at least I think it was Benry. It is not easy paying attention to the show AND writing down everything I want to say.) It's a great quote, and it is definitely true.

And not only should Chase grow a pair, but Chase appears, to me at least, to be somewhat of an idiot. Sure, Brenda is cute, but she would've cut him loose the first chance she got. I believe he is thinking with the wrong head out there!

Let's talk about the reward challenge. The only thing I really have to say about it is this: If you put a barrel on it's side, then we the audience shouldn't hear, "Oh no, it's rolling!" Um, what exactly are you expecting it to do?!

And I officially want to go volcano-boarding. It looks amazing! I think I will add that to my bucket list. Well, I would if I had a bucket list.

I really love how Holly is playing the game. She was putting bugs in the ears of just about everyone out there about Brenda and why it is crucial to vote her out. She is doing an exceptional job out there and I couldn't be more proud of our SD girl! I can even overlook the fact that she dropped that "F" bomb.

The endurance immunity challenges have always been my favorite ones, and last night's was a doozy. It looked very difficult. I am having a hard time with the fact that Dan did better at it than at least three other people, including Holly. I am not quite sure what to say about that, except that there is a first time for everything. Jane was very impressive in that challenge. She rocked it and she is simply amazing!

My favorite part of last night's episode was at Tribal Council when Jeff asked Kelly for her 20 years of wisdom. First of all, she looked surprised that she was being asked to speak, then she became flustered and blurted out something that made no sense at all. I am really glad she gave us her deep thoughts. I am sorry, Kelly, that editing made you look foolish. But yet I am not sorry. It was funny as hell to watch!

I think the fire at camp was the last thing Libertad was expecting to have happen. They were devastated by it and lost many of their belongings.

Brenda was voted out. Was it a good thing? Probably. But I think she would have made a better winner than Dan, Kelly, or Chase. They aren't really doing anything to earn the million dollars and the title of Sole Survivor. If one of those three end up winning, I may need to stop watching Survivor.

I am undecided as to whether I will do a blog next week since the next episode is the recap one. I guess I could always write a blog on how I feel about the Russell/Rob season coming up. I definitely have some strong opinions on that!


  1. can you imagine three back to back seasons with such horrible winners? natalie, sandra and kelly?

  2. great blog Julie!! You do that too??? So do I!! It is hard tho when you have the one thought going through your mind and then boom something big happens and u are like darnit!!! I am beyond impressed with Holly our girl is gonna win!!

  3. Nice recap of the show Julie. To put it in simple terms and I know everyone agrees that Chase is just a pussy and I hope now that Brenda is gone, he may be man enough to make some tough decisions. I do hope so.
    Brenda was too cocky and she was totally outplayed last week mainly by Holly, who knew which people to recruit to take her down and she really stepped up, I can see her going through to the final 3. I would be concerned if Jane was there beside her though. Jane needs to be voted out very quickly before she immunity-wins her way to the final three. Once again, nice thoughts of last weeks episode, I enjoy your writing.
