Love to Interrupt
Eighteen new castaways set sail
for the islands of fire, Vanuatu, to brave the elements, the
volcanoes, and the local cannibals for a chance to outwit,
outplay, and outlast for $1 million.

"Burly Girls, Bowheads, Young Studs and the Old Bunch:
Days 4-6" - September 23
DAY 4: WAKE ME WHEN IT'S OVER
We (and I mean the Levitra.... er, I mean the LOPEVI
Tribe) awaken cold,
wet, depressed... and one man short. Travis (of the Bob
Barker shirt) says he "slept like a baby... I woke up
every two hours." And we're hungry, too. We've lowered
ourselves to eating worms and bugs (which might come in
handy in a future challenge) for our protein... sort of
the PENULTIMATE Atkins diet.
The only thing we can do is to try again for fire. That
might be the morale booster needed. We turn to the
device that failed us on Day 2 and trade off rubbing
hard and fast. Soon, we get smoke... then a small ember
that we blow gently on to fuel it. We call over Lea
(whom we call "Sarge") for help in keeping the fire
going and building on it. It would've WORKED... but then
the voodoo princes above decide to rain on our parade...
LITERALLY! We better get drinking water SOON...before
the girls (who HAVE fire) destroy us!
AFTERNOON 4: MIND GAMES
J.P. is getting paranoid, so he asks "Bubba" (Travis) if
his name came up before Tribal Council last night. Bubba
admits it was... and that makes J.P. even MORE nervous.
It's three young and buff guys (J.P., Johnny & Brady)
vs. the five older crowd, according to him.
Bubba then tells J.P. he's too big a threat... and "so
friggin' dangerous". In fact, according to Bubba, there
were 17 threats at the start of the game... since
there's only one winner.
REWARD CHALLENGE: HOLD THE LINE
To Challenge Cove we go and the ladies find out that
Brook has been booked a flight off of Vanuatu. The
Reward Challenge essentially has us on a beam with
numbers painted on our biceps, 1 through 8. Each member,
in numerical order, has to pass the OTHER tribe members
on the beam and get to a platform. We cannot fall off or
touch more than one member at a time or we have to start
over. First one with all eight on the finish platform
wins. (Read it through a few times; took me that long to
understand it, too.)
Everyone is drooling about what the reward might be,
HOPING for something good. And it is. Two pillows, three
heavy blankets and a rope hammock with stakes to help
the tribe sleep better. Not only that but, if WE win, WE
get a flint denied to us yesterday! In fact, the flint
will be given to us after the first Challenge we win!
After Yasur sits Scout out for this Challenge, we get on
Brady is our #8 guy and he starts. He pushes Johnny (#7)
off the first time but manages to clear him and J.P.
(#6) easily. Getting past Chad (#5) is a different
matter. Brady tries to balance both him and the
one-legged wonder on the beam at the same time. They're
a bit shaky as Brady moves on, but everyone's still on.
The girls are having THEIR difficulties but are going
smooth and slow... and get one girl to the end just as
Brady gets past Sarge (#4). Bubba (#3) doesn't like this
Challenge... since he only learned to swim less than 50
days ago and doesn't want to fall. As Yasur's second
girl goes in the drink, Brady passes Rory (#2) and Chris
(#1) to even the score.
Johnny takes his time passing J.P... enough time for
Yasur to go up 2-to-1. He falls off trying to pass Sarge,
which means the ladies have a chance to cream us. Soon,
it's 3-to-1... then 4-to-1. And Johnny is STILL
stumbling, forcing himself and Chad into the water (and
making Brady wince). Chad nearly falls off the beam
again returning to his position, but survives. A ray of
hope happens when the #4 girl touches two tribe members
at once and has to restart. But Johnny just CAN'T
capitalize, falling off trying to pass Bubba! Soon, it's
5-to-1... then 6... oh, you know the rest! Yasur kicked
our asses... AGAIN! They get to sleep warm and comfy
tonight... and we go back, humiliated once more.
NIGHT 4: TALKING 'BOUT YOU
With hermit crabs walking all over, we return to camp...
angry at how the last girl shimmied her way to a
class-less victory. But a win is a win, and there's no
penalty for excessive celebration in THIS game. Rory has
the biggest problem with the dancing... and he walks
away to chill out. This gives Sarge a chance to talk to
the others. He feels that, since it looks more and more
like we'll keep losing, Rory and his mouth has got to
DAY 5: PSYCHO CHICKEN
A new day shows new promise... though none of the wild
fowl that roam the girls' camp made their way to OUR
side of the island. Too bad their cooking skills aren't
as good as their hunting skills... which were bad
enough. Let's move on, shall we?
IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: BLINDED BY THE LIGHT
"So far it seems the spirits haven't responded to
Depend upon your tribemates; you can't do this on
When you put it all together, it takes agility,
skill and trust.
Tonight, the dreams of victory for one will turn to
That's true: the Spirit
Stone hasn't done $#!+ for us since we got it. We decide
we've been neglecting it and we erect a post to place
the Stone on top of it, raising it on high so that the
spirits snap out of their trance and HELP us! As soon as
we finish... it rains? (SPOOOOOOOKYYYYY!)
Back to the Cove we go and the babes put the Immunity
Idol back in Uncle Jeff's hands. There are large puzzle
pieces around and a watch-tower. Ohhhhhhh, it's that
'Loud Leading the Blind' game! My tribe is good at
that... well, the tribe COVERED by me is good at that.
Saboga won it on "Survivor: All-Stars". Maybe the
spirits ARE helping us at last.
Seven members of each tribe will be blindfolded and tied
together in groups of three, two and two while the
eighth directs them around the beach to gather pairs of
puzzle pieces around the beach and in the water. Once
all 24 pieces are on our mat, the blindfolds come off
and we assemble three flat puzzles on a stairway, from
bottom to top. First one to get all three puzzles
together gets to stay home tomorrow night while the
other goes to Uncle Jeff's Stone Temple of Doom to boot
someone out. The men will ALSO get their flint if they
won, so this is DOUBLY important for us!
We elect Sarge (since he has the loudest mouth) to guide
us. Yasur choose Scout (how appropriate) to lead and
they sit out Dolly. At the count of "go", Lea shouts out
like Sgt. Hartman on a bad day, yelling directions to
the guys while Scout tries to do the same. It's
difficult, though, and we're soon down 5-to-2. Sarge is
getting frustrated, particularly with Bubba's inability
to hear his instructions. We make some headway, though,
and pull ahead nine-to-six as the girls have THEIR
Then Chris drops our tenth pair on the mat... and on his
shin (YEEEOUCH)! J.P. and Johnny trudge out to sea to
get the second water pair, with Sarge shouting his lungs
out with directions. One team gets our 11th piece... but
Yasur is starting to catch up. And Rory shouting for
J.P. to hurry up with the last pieces is making Sarge
VERY angry. That's when Scout makes a serious mistake:
she forgets there are TWO pairs of pieces in the water
and they only got ONE. Sarge commands J.P. and Johnny to
the mat...and we can take our blindfolds off and charge
to victory... we hope!
As we work on the first puzzle, Scout is informed of the
one remaining piece in the water and sends out her girls
to get it. We struggle with the puzzle, and Yasur
manages to get their final piece and start on THEIR
puzzle. We manage to finish our first puzzle... but so
do the ladies, right on our tail. They have trouble (and
arguments) with the second puzzle as we sweep through
it. It's only a matter of time, now. We fit the final
puzzle together... and climb to the top, victorious at
last! We get IMMUNITY! We get FIRE! And, best of all, we
get to rub it in the girls' faces!
NIGHT 6: RAG DOLL(Y)
So while we enjoy fire and drinking un-polluted water,
Yasur heads for
Tribal Council... and votes out Dolly (who I figured as
the first one out to BEGIN with). At least the tribes
are even in strength... though they still have a
hammock, blankets and pillows.
