Survivor – Season 28 – CAGAYAN – Brains vs Beauty vs Brawn

survivorlogoHere we are again kids or should I say castaways. This is season 28 which would make it my 6th or 7th season season. I don’t remember which but I am not the superfan that some of you are but, I volunteered to do this once before so here I am again with it 😉 .. Most of those seasons have had the things I hate the most on these shows. Retreads. Returning players. These are players from before, past seasons, that CBS insists on bringing back time after time for God only knows what reason… Then the newbies on each tribe kiss these people’s asses and work to push THEM to the end when, the retreads should be the first to go. Thankfully there are none this time around and thank you sweet baby Jesus, No Redemption Island. Once they are voted off, they are gone. That does not mean that this cast doesn’t have it’s share of asshats who believe they should be lord and master of their respective tribes. Asshat by the way is not a gender specific term.

I am not sure how many of you are familiar with my history on watching this show. I tried to watch S1 but, as soon as I saw a fat middle aged naked man running around, that was enough for me. That guy won that season and I do believe he is currently doing a prison stretch for tax evasion. Maybe he can show Juicy Joe the ropes once He gets there. I hope for Joe’s sake, the guy decided to put some clothes on… I digress..

surcastHere is a simple shot of the cast… I want you to pay particular attention to the two douchebags in the middle shot who are not wearing shirts. That is the Brains tribe. If you ask me they are a bunch of morons. The Brawn tribe is on the left. I don’t know anything about any of these people except the big black guy in the orange shirt. He was once a Detroit Piston. Couldn’t tell you when he played or how good he was but there it is. The woman in the yellow/green tank, is the asshat on her team from what I have seen so far. On the right, we have Beauty. Including at least one Pageant queen. A Miss Kentucky if I’m not mistaken. Aside from the big boobs I guess, I don’t see what makes these people the ‘beauty’ tribe but, that’s just me.

Now, this was a 2 hour premier… A full night of TV for Survivor junkies. When I first got my DVR and set it up as time went by to record my shows, series recordings were set. Why it is that my DVR continues to record Teen Mom with no further input from me but fails to record Survivor every season, is beyond me. So, you guessed it, I haven’t seen everything. I will have that fixed before next week though. I did catch enough of it streaming to get us up to speed though so, here we go.

Probst greets the three tribes at some beach.. I don’t know how it was decided but one from each gets to pick another that is automatically out. Or so they assume. Each picks, and again, I’ll note the Brains tribe because that’s the only one I saw do this, Shirtless asshat in the back, chose shirtless asshat in the front to be kicked out. The other two tribes took part in the same activity. Shirtless asshat in the front is named Garrett and he is a pro poker player. Remember that. Right away I am thinking this is another redemption island thing where 3 people begin their game there. Instead they are choppered to their respective camps ahead of everyone else. Once there, they have a choice to make. Be selfish, or be a team player. The selfish ones get the first clue to the hidden idol (yes, there are 3 to start, one for each tribe). The team player gets an extra bag of rice  for their team. Could become very important later. The chosen one from the Brawn tribe chose the rice, the other two chose the idol clue. Garret, from the brain tribe found the idol and thinks he’s golden. The one from the beauty tribe. I think, Morgan, did not find the idol before her team got there so now, they know she is looking for it which likely puts a target on her back. Now at the Brawn tribe, there is still a hidden clue to the idol since it was not chosen…Tony, the guy with the chest tattoo, later found that clue And the idol… He is a cop on the NJPD btw and one of his pet peeves from his bio, is he hates thugs who wear skinny jeans… Heheheheeee… I think I’m going to like this guy but time will tell as he also says the survivor he is most like, Russel Hantz..

Okay, now it’s time to set up the camps… I’ll refer you again to the brains tribe… The black woman at the top left of the picture, J’Tia (don’t expect me to screw around with that apostrophe on every recap)… She is a nuclear engineer from Chicago and recently earned her PhD, I assume, from Northwestern and she is the first black woman in that department to earn that distinction. Do you know what I learned about engineers when I first started working at the car company (Not advertising for anyone in these recaps)? They are as dumb as a bag of wet rocks when it comes to practical things, and I AM an engineer. Good gawd, these jokers, who work for a car company, could barely operate a car jack, to change a tire. JTia, took it upon herself to design in her head the camp’s shelter and then direct everyone else on how to build it. She proved to be no different than the jokers I use to work with.

I guess by some miracle with some divine intervention, all 3 tribes got their shelters built. They are now off to the first immunity challenge that will also include reward. Said reward is Fire or rather the tools to make it happen. That is for the first and second place teams of the challenge Loser goes home with nothing and will be the first team at tribal council and are stuck rubbing a pair of sticks together hoping to generate enough heat to ignite some dry grass. A couple of the teams have already been able to build fire but the tools will make it easier… Season 28 people. There isn’t an asshat on any of these teams that doesn’t know that will be a required skill. I’ll bet there are hundreds of youtube videos that demonstrate how to do it… It’s like the idiot that goes on the Amazing Race and can’t drive a stick shift.. Folks wonder why I think people are so stupid..

I did not see the challenge but the Brains lost and will be the first at tribal council… I didn’t see much of the council either but it seemed as though they wanted to bounce JTia. They haven’t liked this woman since minute 2 in this game. What really happened is one of the shirtless asshats from the top photo got sent packing. That would be David who is pictured here looking like he forgot to put his pants on and is wearing combat boots (the short one in the front). He happens to be the owner of the Miami Marlins but that didn’t help him here.. He’s the one who tried to do away with Garret, the other shirtless asshat but shown here at the left of the photo.. David did a lot of lip flapping and gum pounding about how he could read people and wasn’t worried about the Beginning of the game but the end of it… He can think about that mistake on his return to Miami. He’s done. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten shirtless asshat #2 from the picture…

Normally, that would be it but this is a double episode… I am going to take a short break here to bitch about something. The pic above shows 3 from the beauty tribe.. Season 28… All of them are doing it but, see the dick in the middle? Is there some rule that says these asshats have to run around in their drawrs and brars for the first several days on this show? Dude couldn’t use a swimsuit instead? These people always end up with swimsuits, why not start with them? Anyone who says they don’t care… Need I remind you of… Pinky? Mr Stealth-R-Us super agent? Okay, I’m done…

The teams all at their camps strategerizing before the next immunity challenge. I don’t have challenge pictures for you so I will try to describe this. I doubt it is new anyway.. Teams are to swim out to a huge cage in the water. All members of the team must reach the cage before they can proceed. Once there they climb over the top and begin untying ropes that hold a gate shut. After they do that, the drag back the 4 fishing traps in each that contain, what else, Puzzle pieces. After they are back at the beach, everyone per team is on shore, one from each begins solving the puzzle. First two teams to solve it, win. Loser goes to council where someone will be once again, voted out.

They race To the cages is pretty neck and neck but JTia isn’t a very fast swimmer.. Brandi was wrong about black girls swimming because the other black woman on the brains tribe, Latasha (Tasha) managed it just fine and both of them even got their hair wet… (sorry).. The brains and brawn teams get back to shore first but beauty for some reason is struggling with dragging those 4 fishing traps back to shore. I don’t know what their malfunction was. Maybe they thought they saw a mirror and stopped to admire themselves. Eventually, after the other two teams have minutes head start on them, they do get to the beach. One would think with that much time lost they would have been out of it.. However, JTia, self proclaimed puzzle mistress, can’t seem to get the first piece properly placed. Brawn is nearly done as beauty gets started… Do I need to play Probst and do a play by play or can you guess what happened? If you guessed that Brawn finished firsrt, and beauty won second because brains couldn’t get it together then, get yourself a platinum star (compliments of DJprincess, because she is the one that hands those out).. Brains is going to council a second time thanks, apparently to JTia. Winners got fishing gear as well as being safe.

Back at camp, here we go.. Pre-tribal back stabbing begins. The strategy part of the game. The part that can even the playing field if played right. By now, asshat2, has named himself dictator and has decided that discussing who goes, is an open forum group discussion. Especially since his nemesis, asshat1, is gone. Tasha, wants to have side discussions but asshat2 will have none of that and continuously overrules her. Sidenote, I think this guy is a bigot and wants the black women gone first. Remember, this guy is a PRO Poker player AND, he has a hidden immunity idol. His position in this game should be gold right now. He doesn’t like the strategery part of the game though and won’t allow anyone else to play the game their way. Especially his lapdog, Spencer, the other guy on the team. It’s all decided then, JTia screwed up, she gots to go. Tasha however is pissed at asshat2 telling her how she is going to play her game. She goes to Kass, the other woman on the team, and plants a few bugs in her ear about women vs men. I don’t think she actually said that but she was talking numbers and with a 3:2 split, that’s all it could mean. As they are talking, asshat2 and his lapdog approach them. Remember, he doesn’t want any side convos. He’s laid down the law about how it’s going to be. These are educated professional women and I have never seen one that would allow herself, to be told what to do by anyone. Meanwhile, JTia, who is alone at camp and obviously pissed about the day’s events, takes it upon herself to quietly pour out all of the team’s rice on the fire. I guess even without the tools, they figured out how to build one at some point (I would hope so with a nuclear engineer in their midst). So Now, they have nothing to eat but coconuts and whatever they can catch. At this point, I and everyone else watching would assume that JTia has sealed her fate in the game. She of course denied doing it but they all knew. Let’s get to council and see what really happens though.

Council begins as does the Probsting. Right away it comes out that the group ‘collectively’ decided to vote out JTia.. Even Spencer is on board with it as asshat2’s lapdog. Kass is keeping quiet for now but Tasha intends to blow this all up. She’s not letting go of the numbers thing and suddenly, asshat2’s position doesn’t look so golden. Even Probst says that this idea of collective agreements (My words, not his) is ridiculous because it may not allow for blindsides and other strategies in the game. That is how Survivor has played. Asshat2 is trying to change how it’s played because he doesn’t like one element in the game, strategy, the poker player. Now, wheels are turning. It even comes out that the guys think they have Kass in their corner. I am not a poker player. I like to play but it’s always penny games just for fun. I could never make a living at it and in fact, would probably be homeless if I tried. That said, even I know, you never show your hand, before all bets are in and you’ve suckered everyone else in the game to committing all of their cash. Probst thinks this is all the stupidest shit he ever heard at council. Even if he didn’t say it, I could see it in his stunned eyes. He calls for a vote… Asshat2 votes for JTia, she votes for him. Typical.. Remember, this guy also has a hidden immunity idol. Every one votes, Probst polls for the idol, none given, votes are read… If you guessed that JTia, who likely cost them the last challenge and fishing gear AND dumped all their food into a fire is the one who was voted out, you do not get a platinum star. If you guessed that Asshat2 received 3 votes to leave, you, get a platinum star… See DJprincess.. Garrett, left his idol back at camp because he was so cocky and sure of his game that he felt he wouldn’t need it. What he did not count on was 2 of the women, resenting being told what to do and siding with JTia to bounce his ass back to where ever he came from. Spencer, is stunned. It’ll be a few days before he figures out what just happened (this dude is a champion chess player). How many in the history of the game have been sent home, holding an idol?

That’s it folks. I want to thank, JustDee, for unknowingly saving me from the typical 20 minute search for a suitable logo for these recaps. The few photos I provided came from the CBS website except one. The triple tribe cast pic at the top. It came from the Jokerupdates forum. Thank you again, JustDee, for that link. IF you go there, fair warning, there are spoilers there. You will also find detailed cast bios there. No spoilers on the linked page but if you wander further in, there could be. Lastly, for all things Survivor, on facebook, Survivor Whispers fb group (spoiler alert).

See ya next week 😀

Peace, MTH.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone and Mel. 🙂 It’s bright and shiny and it’s Friday Eve. Yes Friday Eve. Why does that sound so good to say? Everyone have a great day.

    • laineylainey says:

      Hi Powellypooh!! Hi everyone!! MTH looks like a juicy blog. But I do not watch Survivor. I did, however, watch the premier of The Americans. I loved it.

      Happy Friday Eve – if your name is Eve, that would be confusing.?

  2. Powell says:

    Season 28 of Survivor and that’s w/2 shows per season right? That’s a long time.

  3. Powell says:

    I’d think big boobs would be a physical adherence to these games. But that’s just me.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Typically that and big brawn do get in the way.. Either the boobs are in the way or contestants wear out from having to navigate their bodies through the obstacles. Remember Russel (I think that was his name, Malcom’s first season) from a few seasons ago? He couldn’t even pull himself out of the water..

  4. ladebra says:

    Morning! Can’t wait to read the blog! Everyone have a great Friday eve. 👋👋

    I just finished reading the comments from yesterday. You guys are hilarious!

  5. not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    Jeff-I missed most of the show( I saw the first 1/2 hour and then got sidetracked with kids stuff) Did Asshat2 actually tell Probst that he wanted to change the game of Survivor? If so he really is an Asshat!! When people come on and talk about changing the game or playing with integrity I’m Instantly turned off by them. I love the plotting and scheming and when people try to act like they are above I say ..Girl..bye!!

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      That was about what he was whining about.. He wanted the part that he didn’t want to mess with to not be a part of his tribe. Playa got played, by the women who had other ideas on how to play the game… How else do you lose a challenge, dump the food, deny doing it, and still come back from council?

      • I was blessed to watch the show with my loud obnoxious 32 yr old son giving commentary during the whole show. If he starts coming over on Wednesday to watch I’m watching in my bedroom. However, he helps empty our refrigerator of leftovers. He did tell asshat#2 Garret to STFU. He kept saying “Stop talking dude you’re so stupid, they’re going to kick your ass out”. He was right. The girl on the Brawn team with the dreadlocks is annoying and the pilates instructor lady is not impressed with her. I do like Cliff as he played for the Portland Trailblazers. It’s too early for me to pick a favorite. Thanks for blogging this Jeff.

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          Agree on all…. I tried watching TV with my uncle once and it was the most miserable tv watching experience of my life.. The joke is, I do the same thing but not if someone else is there.

          • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            I can not watch Survivor with my husband-Kevin hates all these reality shows and all the people on them so he spends the whole show telling me how stupid, annoying, lazy..etc everyone is and I miss the whole show! If he is home when I’m watching he gets a request to go to the ManCave…and off he runs!!!

  6. Veena (NMD) says:

    Good morning. That was one of the best starts to Survivor so far. What you missed at the beginning MTH was that each team was asked to pick a leader. Then Jeff asked each leader to pick their weakest player – thinking they’d be voted out. But that didn’t happen – that player was sent ahead to camp and given the choice – one extra bag of rice or a clue to the idol. The blonde took the rice – the other two took the clue. The shirtess guy found the idol that way. The other woman didn’t find the idol.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Kind of backfired on the one from the brains tribe, didn’t it 😀

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I tuned in to watch Shirtless sticking his arm into holes in a waterfall. And they kept showing snakes. He found it. Then Girlie was climbing on a huge rock and her tribe arrived. And I left.

      I’m just not that into it. I think I may have turned to Bachelor from there (or vice versa). And that was bad too. (Or was that the night before? LOL!)

  7. Sus says:

    I’ve got nothing today. I just want all of you to keep me company today 🙂

  8. ladebra says:

    Wow. She poured out the rice … rofl. And now she doesn’t have anything to eat also? rofl.

    • Powell says:

      Why’d she pour out the rice? That was stupid.

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        She’s batcrapcrazy. Plus, she was cranky because in the all team “open discussion” it was concluded that she would be the one to be voted off the island. Garret, (the guy who was actually voted off the island) was so dang paranoid about the others going off into little groups to discuss strategies – took the other guy and followed the remaining 2 women down to the ocean’s edge thus leaving batcrapcrazy girl all alone and really, really cranky. So being the brainiac that she is, batcrapcrazy girl wanted revenge and therefore emptied their entire container of rice into the fire. It didn’t occur to batcrapcrazy girl that the game could be set on its side at the vote. However, that being said… Equally batcrapcrazy… is that the two more sane women have now aligned themselves with a “nuclear engineer” who: 1) Thinks she knows everything and that she’s easily the smartest one there or probably in the universe; 2) Orders everyone else around while doing nothing – and I do mean NOTHING at camp; 3) Couldn’t build a shelter if her life depended on it but convincingly talked everyone else into her shelter building prowess; 4) Can barely swim and probably can’t walk and chew gum at the same time; 5) While having a HONKIN’ lead in the challenge – couldn’t put together a puzzle that both the other teams seemingly had very little problems putting together (remember, batcrapcrazy girl is on the “brains” team… ha!); and 6) Has the propensity to do something so heinous as to ruin the one constant food source for the rest of her team (and, in the case, since she’s actually still on the island – herself). Who is more batcrapcrazy… The one who spilled the rice or the ones who aligned themselves with her?

        Great job on the recap, Mel! I’m so glad to see you are recapping Survivor again!

  9. California35 says:

    Good morning 🙂

    Hey you guys! Stop stereotyping California, LA or any area. Stop with the labels!!! Dont you dare!!!
    Yes it is raining and yes there are maniac drivers over here (not me, i promise :-P). It rained all night, but it is so nice and sunny now…the weather app and tv say we will
    Have more rain. I love to live only a few blocks from work, I don’t have to deal with crazy drivers (and other dont have to deal with me :-P).

  10. AZGirl says:

    Good morning. Looking forward to the rain once it moves on past California. We need it so bad.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      We are getting snow. Or maybe not. Apparently there are two totally discrepant weather models for tomorrow and the weekend. One says lots of snow. The other: zip.

      I’m so glad I fixed the snow shovel.

  11. not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    Aviva is on the Today show right now…she’s talking about her leg..and her book

  12. Gracias Melcito for another great Blog… again didn’t watch! I need to know when it airs!

    Good Thursday to everyone! Stay warm!

    I read that Yolanda and Lisa want to recruit Mohamed’s fiancée to join RHOBH… I hope the sweet girl says NOOOOoooOOO! Run for your life Shiva!!! I hope Brandi gets her spin on Bravo and I don’t have to watch her antics anymore!

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Wednesday at 8pm eastern 🙂

    • mrs peabody says:

      Is she up for a spinoff? I won’t watch it. Good morning everyone. It’s going to be a long day at work today so keep posting all day so I have something to break my day up.

    • California35 says:

      I thoight of Shiva for a BH housewife. Now THAT is a BH lady i wiuld like to ck. her life seems to me like a BH life, you know, the one we want to see. The problem is that if she joins, she may turn to be just like the others :-/ and we will end up disapointed. I would like the chance though 🙂

      • Powell says:

        I’d be scared for her to join cuz if she doesn’t get in on the “clicks” that start stuff and she remains nice she could seem to boring and then get fired. I don’t want her to get fired. She seems to be nice.

    • California35 says:

      Oh! And i don’t want Brandi to get a spin off, God her head will get so big, but if it means she will be off BH, then give her her own show. We have said though, she has nothing enough for a tv show, but whatever.

      • mrs peabody says:

        Maybe she can get one and take Yolo with her, it could be “The Meanwives of HB”

      • HuskerHuny says:

        What in the world does Brandi have to offer to justify getting her own show? They could call it Crash and Burn.

      • Powell says:

        I see the plus and the minuses. I don’t want her to be rewarded by getting a show but if she has a show hopefully she won’t be on BH, but then again she may be on just like Lisa which would defeat the purpose. A conundrum. 😉

        • Sus says:

          A Brandi spinoff? No no no no no !!! Don’t waste the programming hour please! What is there to watch?
          Boy, has my mind changed on her or what!!!

    • Powell says:

      Yo and Lisa together or on their own are trying to recruit Shiva?

      • California35 says:

        Hhhmm was that Yo’s attempt, when she asked her to help with Gigi’s going away party? The breakfast scene where she is also talking about Lisa.

  13. not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    One of Brandi’s 487 BFFs is tweeting Scheana

    • California35 says:

      Ugh! I wished this girl Adrianne would not get involved in the Brandi drama :-/ i like her from the car show 😦

    • BB says:

      Oh Lordy! That’s rich. This friend of pure and innocent Brandi calling out Scheanna’s past.

      • California35 says:

        I guess Brandi will get into trouble if she talks about this stuff right now, but her friends won’t.

        • NYC Mama says:

          Her peeps seem to have read her the riot act so she has been staying away from twitter for the most part. Her head is probably going to explode.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Put the f*ck up or shut the f*ck up… This isn’t a did she screw him debate. It is whether or not Lisa knew about it.. And really who gives a flying f*ck at a spinning doughnut? Oh, I know, that stupid shit, Brandi… Next.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      As proven by the sitdown at SUR… Scheana was more than a TuesNiteGirl as he helped her move, met her parents, went away w/ her and she met his friends. It started on Tuesday and went on for days and days. I can imagine her believing he was ‘single’ when he was so free w/ his time.

  14. BB says:

    Thanks for doing double duty again, MTH. I always wonder why they have to air the Amazing Race and Survivor seasons during the same timeframe. Aren’t they both CBS?

  15. R to the E to the B to the E to the C to the C to the A says:

    What is it with these crazy old ladies (Baba Wawa, Mia Farrow, and Paula Deen) that they can’t seem to shut up?

    • trudie says:

      That is just crazy. My son goes to Mizzou and I am so proud of the way the school and students are handling this. Westboro Baptist picketed there after Sam gave the interview, and students lined all the streets surrounding WB in a silent show of support. No trash talking, no heckling, just stood there until WB left.

    • BB says:

      I only read the title, didn’t read the article. I’m from the south and there’s a couple of choices for places these old ladies could go. One is the back bedroom and the other we just call “The Home.” lol

  16. R to the E to the B to the E to the C to the C to the A says:

    Rebecca for the WIN!

    Yes I’m gloating- cuz I never win any of these stupid giveaways.

  17. SoutheastVA says:

    Bethenny’s SkinnyGirl brand has really arrived. It was the answer to a Jeopardy question last night. What’s next SNL?

    @YolandaHFoster @rsjt But did you think u conversed w/Lisa in a polite way? I think u are regretting aligning w/Brandi. Can’t blame u.

    • laineylainey says:

      Oh my word, I’m loving this. Go sue, go!!!

    • mrs peabody says:

      Maybe her and Luann should become besties, they could spend their days correcting each other and telling the other one how to act and converse with each other. Seems to me when they were at Palm Springs and Kyle said to Yolo they were having a conversation Yolo didn’t seem to take kindly to being told that. Guess when she talks it’s a conversation but not when others try to talk to her.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Sue, just tell her for all of us that she’s a worthless famewhore, using worthless famewhore tactics and get it over with. Get ready for the tweets and instagrams about King David and her daughter’s modeling career, I mean, college experience 🙄

      • HuskerHuny says:

        What we have here is a big case of someone who can dish it out, but cannot take it when given back. Yoyo needs to take a step away and look at her actions and words and then apply her own advice to herself. And don’t blame it on being European. Not nice is not nice regardless of where you are from. Way to hold her accountable Sue!

        • BB says:

          Go, Sue, Go. Hold her Lemony Smelling Feet to the Fire! They all have to be held accountable, even perfect YoFo

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          lemondrop has always sucked at these twitter wars.. She should just give it up. Bitch forgets we have eyes and ears, and see and hear the shows on our TVs… Some even have DVRs so they can be replayed and looked at step by step. If that doesn’t work, there are the sites that offer programming for FREE, including the HoWives.

        • Powell says:

          You’re so correct.

    • ramonacoaster says:

      I think it is rude of Yolanda to imply that Sue cannot hold a polite conversation because she most certainly can. Get some self-awareness Yolanda. Good job Sue!

          OH…Sue…Good for you. But telling us that watching the “edited version of a drama is a waste of our time,” is spoken like someone who knows her days are numbered. Yo will repeat this line…in a polite way…when her contract is not renewed.

          I didn’t watch the show when she pulled the birthday cake away from her daughter. Read it on these blogs and shook my head. True story. When Jackie O learned that she was dying, she went to lunch at a famous NY restaurant with a good friend. The dessert cart rolled by, and in a rare move, Jackie stopped the cart. THAT’S when her friend knew Jackie was sick. Jackie said, “All that exercise. And for what?”

  19. not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

    I remember when a HW did something like this and some of us were saying that she was negotiating her contract on twitter…anyone remember who it was??

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Could be any of them but could this be from the Zarin Playbook? Sounds a lot like that NJ heifer, MeGo as well.

      • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        I can’t remember who it was..maybe VV will remember

      • NYC Mama says:

        Or since Lisa doesn’t need the job (unlike Mego, Teresa and the majority of other HW’s), has VPR to showcase her restaurants and businesses maybe she really is considering leaving and doing something else because she doesn’t want to be the brunt of others attacks. Unlike Brandi she still has many fans who are supporting her so she may even get a better/different gig on another channel or through another production team. Let’s face it, it was lives like Lisa’s that people tuned in to see in the first place, the fighting and backstabbing came later. Lisa seems to have the upper hand in this. Without her Bravo is stuck with Kyle, Kim, Yolanda and Brandi (and possibly Joyce and Carlton but who knows) and none of them can carry a show or are remotely interesting.

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          it was lives like Lisa’s that people tuned in to see in the first place
          I agree but, the Bravo machine turned it into a typical shitfest.

    • ladebra says:

      Supposedly they sign 4 year deals right? (I might have made that up). So if it’s contract renewal time, let the negotiating begin. You can’t (well, you can and all the h8ers will) fault someone for negotiating the best deal they can get.

      • Powell says:

        Nope. Can’t fault them for negotiating the best deal they can get. I know reality is different from scripted and most just look out for themselves but I hope there’s no “Suzanne Somers” negotiating. Well actually it was Suzanne’s husband Alan that did her negotiations yr two and got fired. She went in w/the attitude that “she” was the show and said to Joyce D, and John R that they could all get raises and she ended up getting fired. Yikes. No one person is the Star. You can get fired. LOL I can imagine Kyle going in and saying it’s her and Kim or she’s not staying.

        • ladebra says:

          oh that Suzanne Somers backfire was yikes! In a weird sort of way, I like the way the studio called her bluff, but you are right Powell – no one person is the star in this format.

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          I was just thinking HoWives.. Wasn’t even thinking about her and her shenanigans. They just found another big jiggly boobed blonde go replace her.

  20. shamrockblonde says:

    Jeff – thanks so much for the blog!!! – why on earth were the girls not standing up and telling that pompous, pampered snob that he was not the boss of them and they would play the game any way they wanted!!! – that almost annoyed me as much as shirtless 2 did!!! – so far I am rooting for the two police officers – that girl knew he was a cop within seconds – sharp – and the girl on the brains team – the blonde – she seems to be with it – I like the basketball player, he seems nice – we shall see – soooo glad there were no returning players and no redemption island!! next one out? J’tia?

    and what is all this talk about Brandi getting a spinoff??? WHAT! – has Bravo taken complete leave of what little sense they have? that woman is already spinning….. can she not see that she is being used and exploited? does she not understand that her actions will be seen by her sons AND her son’s friends? no….of course not…..

    a spinoff….I just can’t….

    • Powell says:

      If Brandi does get a spin-off I bet she doesn’t even contemplate your thoughts regarding her sons.

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Must have been strategy because after JTia dumped the rice in the fire, I thought she was gone. She could be next or the women could finish the job and get rid of Spencer.

  21. designernailsdiana says:

    Some of you may already know I have 1 son and 2 daughters. 32, 30 and 26 yrs old. The 2 oldest have given me 3 grandchildren. Only my son has ever been married and he divorced in 2011 I think.
    Well, on Christmas Eve my oldest daughter Lizzi (Elizabeth) got engaged to her son’s father Joe. They never mentioned a wedding date.
    Now my baby girl Christina got engaged yesterday. Brenden proposed to her on top of Palisade Head near Duluth, MN.
    Lizzi is thinking 2015 wedding at the Minnesota Rennaissance Festival. Medieval Wedding.
    Christina wants a Hippie themed wedding in 2016 or 2017.
    I don’t know if I’m ready for this or not.

    • Powell says:

      Well congrats to your girls and your family!! Very sweet. Now is your family traditional where the parents pay for their daughter’s wedding? 🙂

    • BB says:

      Poor Diana! When it rains it pours. I told both my daughters I would pay them $10,000 if they eloped. My oldest daughter ended up planning and paying for her own wedding. All I had to do was pretty much show up. She had a beach wedding on the Outer Banks of NC. The youngest is not there yet. But both themed weddings sound like fun!

      • Powell says:

        LOL BB. $10 grand to elope? Too funny. Did they take your offer seriously?

        • BB says:

          Nope, but I was kind of serious. I would rather them put a down payment on a house or buy a new car than spend lots of money on one day. #practicalnotsentimental

          • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:


            Congrats Diana-overwhelming but exciting!! I love a theme party.!!

          • shamrockblonde says:

            BB – my husband offered a similar deal to our oldest if she would agree that after the church ceremony that we would throw a backyard BBQ reception at the house – that did not happen – he felt – and still does – that large weddings are a huge waste of money that could be better spent on a downpayment on a house – we ended up paying for the wedding for both of our daughters – when my older daughter got re-married we chipped in – her first wedding we had almost 200 guests – same with daughter number 2 –

            • Powell says:

              Oh gosh 400 guests combined? Did your husband’s head explode each wedding?

              • shamrockblonde says:

                LOL – it did indeed – I come from a very large family and a lot of my cousins live in other states and a few in different countries – when he saw me sending invites out to relatives in CA – I live on Long Island – he started getting nervous – I told him that those out of states would probably not come as it was so far away and the invite was just a sign that they were thought of – well – most of them came – so we had the hotel rooms to deal with too – thank goodness most paid for their rooms – but not all – we also covered the wedding dresses, and maid of honor gowns as each daughter was the maid of honor at the other’s wedding – if I remember right that was when my husband started sitting in his car in the driveway – not going anywhere – with the car off – just sitting there – he’s a good egg as my Mom would say –

                • Powell says:

                  Poor Mr. Shamrock. I guess he said better to just sit in the car in silence than to explode or implode. LOL. Well you both made your daughter’s dream come true. You’re both good eggs. 😀

            • BB says:

              I lucked out that my oldest daughter opted not to have a fancy/schmancy wedding. They didn’t go over 50 guests and made their own food for the reception (except for the cake) and got married on the beach. She paid for her own dress and her sister and best friend were her attendants. The beach cottage where they had the reception is where they spent their honeymoon. It was more like a beach mansion and her dad and I did pay for that rental. We got off easy! I know my youngest daughter probably won’t go big either if it ever happens.

          • HA! About 12 years ago I started offering my kids a party or $100 cash and dinner out with the family to their favorite restaurant…. one time in 6th grade my daughter chose a sleep over and my son chose a party at the local arcade but other than that….. #nomorebirthdayparties #otherpeopleskidsaresoannoying

      • designernailsdiana says:

        Thank You BB. I’m excited to see my Grandkids reactions to being in a wedding. I think Isaak, who’ll be almost 4 when it happens, will love being the ring bearer.

    • shamrockblonde says:

      congratulations!!! – both wedding themes sound like great fun – and you are ready – even if you are not – enjoy your children and know that their dreams are fueled by your love and your faith in them – the time will fly by – cherish it –

      • designernailsdiana says:

        Shamrockblonde Aww thanks. I’ll be making the Renaissance themed clothes for the bridal party. Good thing I can sew.
        Hippie will be easy, lots of tie dyed stuff. I will cherish it.

    • Oh WoW!!! I love the Renaissance theme. I already know IF my daughter gets married it will be a Super Heroes theme with some Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Star Trek/Wars thrown in. A complete Nerd Fest!!! And she will want me to make her dress and I am sure there will be spandex, a ton of sparkles and it will have a cape, lol!!! You aren’t ready, you will never be ready, so just fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride!!!!! How exciting! #planningmyhusbandsbirthdaypartyforthedayofyourdaughterswedding

    • AZGirl says:

      Congratulations. Smart girls. Waiting til they are in their 30’s and still taking their time about the wedding. It will all work out!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Congrats Diana! We were planning a wedding for this April but oops! the baby is coming in April instead! So now the wedding will be March 14, 2015 (Pi Day). Yes, that’s my daughter’s sense of humor. She’s right out of The Big Bang Theory with a bit of Dr. Who thrown in and Batman/Star Trek on the side. Holy moly, what kind of wedding is this going to be? Best of luck on yours. Maybe we can share ideas.

    • sparklemuffy says:

      Congrats designernailsdiana! We have 4 boys so the rule is: wear beige and keep your mouth shut– seriously— we did NOT offer to pay for half of the wedding( although many of my friends tell me there is a lot of pressure for this) but we did pay for the honeymoons– #2down2togo 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      OH MY GOSH!!!!! How exciting!!!! Wow, so a wedding in 2015 and the other one…no date mentioned yet…but they will still be close. I love the themes. So fun!!! Congrats on your daughters having true love and solidifying their relationships. It’s all good aNd happy for all.

  23. BB says:

    Now that Gigi is on her way, it’s time to start promoting Bella, the other model daughter. I actually think Bella looks more “modelish” in her pics.

    • Powell says:

      There both beautiful. Gigi’s has Yo’s coloring and Bella has Mo’s coloring. I think Bella looks a lot like one of Mo’s older daughter’s also. I hope they’re both successful if that’s what they want to do. But I do hope they finish college so that they can have long modeling/biz careers like Christie Brinkley, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Beverly Johnson, Iman. These women are all moguls and moguls beyond the catwalk and mag covers.

      • Powell says:

        I hope that for LaineyGirl too.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Thank you, Powell. I appreciate you thinking of LaineyGirl. She did earn her B.A. And then set out for L.A. Having the opportunities that Yo’s girls have at such a young age would be a dream Come true for her or …ANYONE!!! My girl has been modeling since she was 13, but herein Austin, the opportunities are on a much smaller scale. She modeled all through college, runway shows, trunk shows…she wanted to run off to LA to model right after high school, but we made her go to school here in Texas. So as you can see She has been at it awhile, but it’s really hard to get your foot in the door in L.A., but we are glad she earned her degree and got certified in yoga sculpt,…so she has options. She just hired on with her 3rd fitness studio to teach yoga sculpt. She’s a busy girl and trying to build a following. She really really loves teaching yoga. She is such a happy young lady. The occasional modeling gig is awesome and if they came along more often that would be more awesome,…but it is what it is (my nod to the red Don) and I mean, I would promote her like Yo does her girls (not gonna lie, i would if i could!!!) but i cannot. Because, I mean really …”who is LaineyLainey, in this world?” Hahaha!!! I love that.

          Again, thanks for thinking of my angel, who just texted me to say she’s having a great day and just clocked in for the late shift at Lululemon. 😉

          • Haha! Love ya’ girl, LaineyLainey! I think that you were very wise parents leading her to the right decisions… if the modeling career takes off, great! If not she has always her Credentials and she loves what she does! Fabulous!

          • chismosa™ says:

            • LaineyLainey says:

              No, LADebra! She is not coming home for sxsw. I will have a houseful as my husbands younger brother and his cute wife and sweet but feisty kids will be here for sxsw. I M going to try to win tkts online for wwhl.

    Could it be possible that Yofo was the one instigating the bringing of the magazines to Palm Spring? Yofo HATED Kyle since S3 reunion because Kyle called her a liar. Things changed in PS and they became friendlier *for no reason.
    If that was the case, Brandi would never throw Yofo under the bus (at least for now). At the time of filming, Brandi and Yolanda were tight-tight. Something about Yolanda this season. I mean I know she’s full of it (lemons 🍋). Something doesn’t add with her.

  30. Mrs. Peabody- Last night that someone shared a tweet from Brandi about FLATS and BUNS, you made a comment about Yolanda (everyone who participated in that line of comments thought that Brandi was throwing a dig to Leann of Sheena) I am with you… I think she was sending the dig to Yolanda who is the one who wears flats and buns (not now , short hair) and being not being sexy… ProblemsInLemonParadise?

  31. Exit4 says:

    I came over because as I was packing my 872 documents to go to the DMV to get my license I though of the blog! It’s 867 more documents then I need, but in case evil old lady still works there I have to be prepared. I don’t like fighting with the elderly even if I win. Lol. Of course it made me think of Joe G and his fake license. If he just would have driven while suspended, he’d be in a lot less trouble. His brother was so in on it!

    I also thought of Veena because I put everything in my Holland America documents folder! 9 years later that thing still comes in handy! 🙂

    Last point-I didn’t read all the way through, but as for the tabloids-Brandi had them because lots of celebrities but them or have them sent to them. Why? Because they’re in them! They like to read about themselves. Their PR people track their press-when if it’s just a photo at an event. I assume the more narrsissic D listers are worse! Im sure Brandi buys several copies a week to make a scrapbook of her fame. Using glitter pens and STFU thought balloons.

    • nyc mama says:

      There are many who wouldn’t have that garbage in their houses because they know they are basically stories made up to sell tabloids or get hits on the internet and wouldn’t support them by purchasing them.

      In this case it doen’t surprise me that Brandi is stupid enough to read the garbage about her (and then tweet about it and feign victimhood) but since they are usually filled with unflattering (being nice here) articles about her, the boys father and stepmother why keep them out on the table for all to see? Yes, the boys were probably with their father and not there but something stinks about Brandi’s story.

      • Exit4 says:

        At this point I doubt Brandi really cares what the boys see! I know that’s mean-and is never say she doesn’t love her kids-but brandi is about Brandi. Let’s face it! I used to buy them all the time-but i stopped since it’s all online anyway. The magazine lady at shop rite used to wait for me and have them ready every Wednesday after 11! Lol.

        I’ll be visiting NYC at the end if March! Can’t wait! We were just there in October-trying to find a restaurant for Saturday night. Any favorites? We did STK last time-looking at Asselina. If you know any hidden gems let me know! I worked in the city years ago so I’m familiar. My husband has banned shopping this time. We want to do something interesting Saturday afternoon. Is there anything cool and off the beaten path we could do? Friday night is our Amsterdam Ave. bar crawl. Yes, we’re 41-but we had a blast the last time! We met so many cool people!

        • nyc mama says:

          LOL. But the difference between you and Brandi (among the many!) is you don’t have unflattering articles about you in them. Or do you? hmmmm. 🙂

          Food…my favorite subject. Have you been to Beauty and Essex? There are several reasons you may like it. It has great food, it is hidden inside a pawn shop and the HW;s go there when they are in town. Their sister restaurant is Stanton Social but isn’t as much fun. Now if you give me more info like what kind of restaurant, cuisine, etc. I will be happy to go further. For instance if you like <iddle Eastern then I highly recommend Ilili on 5th and 28th St.
          Have you been to the 9/11 Tribute Center and the Memorial? Not the museum since that won't open until May but the Tribute Center is wonderful. A hidden gem indeed. Throiugh the Center you can get a tour of the memorial by either a first responder, family member, survivor, etc. for an experience very different than just going alone. It is not depressing, on the contrary, it is inspiring. Again, if you give me a hint of what you like I am happy to give suggestions and keep my ears open. The museums have some great exhibitions opening up now too.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Will you go to Chinatown? We always go to Peking Duck on Mott St. I know that sounds cliche but it’s very reasonable and it’s always always good. Everyone i’ve sent there has raved. Here’s the link

          Don’t go to the one on 53rd st, it’s not as nice although the food is good. The Peking Duck (house) on Mott Street has a nice atmosphere, it’s clean and like I said, the food is sooooooo good.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            On and get some wonderful cannoli at Ferrara bakery and cafe in Little Italy. Again, I’m so cliche. Ok what we do is..not eat there, the svc is not great, but if you buy a box of cannoli or whatever suits your fancy…take them back to your hotel and just binge eat the hell out of em. Oh we saved them for snacks and would run back to the hotel room sometimes knowing what was waiting for us.

            • nyc mama says:

              Love cannoli’s but we go to Veneiros because it is closer to the house but Ferrara is an institution and definitely worth a stop.

          • nyc mama says:

            I love the Peking Duck House and agree that if you do then Chinatown is the better of the two.

            Exit it also will depend which neighborhood you want to go to. East or Greenwich village? Chelsea? Gramercy? Upper East or West side? I have so many recommendations and happy to give you any and all.
            Here’s the link to Beauty. Almost all of the HW’s have been when they come to NY and usually can spot someone there incuding sports.‎

            In Little Italy there is a great little place called Parm and one of my favorite places is a small Spanish Tapas bar in Gramercy Park called Bar Jamon. It is tiny but I love it and it is connected to the restaurant Casa Mono which is very good too. It is owned by Mario Batali.

    MTH – thanks for your commentary on Survivor! I’m back after taking off last season’s cast of repeats. I enjoyed the episode a great deal – I liked the set up and seems like a lot of formidable players. But I mostly enjoyed it at the expense of an engineer (who can not work a puzzle) and a professional poker player (who didn’t want to play?!) It was so much fun those overly arrogant guys got voted off. I knew when the two women exchanged a glance that was all she wrote for Garrett.

    Look for the next shirtless asshat to be banished – yep, the cop/not a cop. When he didn’t fess up to the other cop especially after she admitted she was, well that sealed his fate…he’s stupid best I can tell he could have had an very strong person to align with. Not all the illogical thinkers are on the Brains tribe.

    The female cop in the Brawn could go far because she said she’s an interigator for the police. Not only can she sniff out a liar, she should know how to manipulate a person to go down a certain path of thinking. She’s an early favorite for me because of the outwit skills I assume she will use.

    MTH, I love your chatter about engineers and logic…..logic and entering a contest where fire and swimming are a given. And swimsuits. It was so funny when you said you needed to take a break and discuss that! 😆 My all time number one complaint is the underwear …you know a swimsuit will be needed…hello. And Mr Muscle and fitness (Garrett- asshat #2) had such a package they had to follow him around with a blur blob. 🙄 I hope be’s proud of his one episode of Survivor, lololol

    Oh and the chick with the very large breasts, they are natural, but how the heck will those be contained?! Editing will need that other blur blob. Frankly I don’t know how you compete with all that but she is former NFL cheerleader, so I guess she works around them just fine. Cliff, professional basketball player, I’m sorry, but I think he’s a liability for being a giant. Pretty much everything except puzzles is agility or longevity. Maybe they shoot some hoops before he’s voted out.

    Sorry so late to comment, busy day and I was miffed that I didn’t know DJPrincess was handing out platinum stars! 😉

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Glad you’re on board TexasT 😀 DJprincess gave me a platinum star one night so I figured I would draft her for the task but i don’t know if she knows it yet 😉 I can see Cliff’s size being a hindered.. The ‘big’ ones don’t do well at the endurance. As for the big breasteded women, I know things like sports brars exist to help hold them in place but I don’t know if they will use them,. Gotta have some jiggle factor in the show ya know… I haven’t picked a favorite yet, I just recognize dumbasses when I see them. So far, none of them have shown me much but again, I didn’t see the whole thing. One of Asshat2’s TH, he was laying there like a girl modeling underwear trying to look sexy. MAJOR Douchebag and I am glad you are with me with being annoyed at these people running around in their Drawrs.

            VV-I have seen you say many times that the talking head are producer driven and manipulated-does that not apply to Kyle?
            The reason she talked about the rumors with Joyce is b/c it was right after Carlton’s lunch and it was for to her to talk about it on her terms-not Lisa or Brandi’s terms.
            How many times did Lisa bring it up? I remember Lisa bringing it up on the first episode-Lisa brought this to the show-not Kyle. This was Lisa idea. She wanted to talk about the elephant in the room..why? What does Lisa gain from making Kyle look like a fool?
            This is not on Kyle-a this is all Lisa…and a little bit Brandi.

            • VV™ says:

              They were in the kitchen talking about ridiculous rumors from rag magazines for Ex Kyle was pregnant. Lisa something else. That is the context im mid the comment that Lisa made. Mauricio gets ready to go out with Portia and Lisa jokes so this is the younger woman they say he’s been seen with (paraphrasing).
              I compare that to Camille’s comment and is day and night. Camille was vicious. She wanted to hurt Kyle with it. Her sidekick I mean psychic friend made hurtful comments too, aimed at hurting.
              Brandi spreading the rumor that she had proof about Mauricio at Polo Lounge was also aimed at hurting Kyle.
              Kyle had the opportunity to dismiss the rumors by dismissing it but she chose the VICTIM role. She did. She knew what this season was going to be about. She put up an act. I didn’t fall for it.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Yes I feel the others have big time.

          Lisa— only that convo in her house with Ken?
          Or other times too?

          PS stupid bravo claims they’re having a BH marathon on Saturday but it’s only the past 2 or 4 episodes. I wanted episodes back to the lunch at the witch’s house.

    One of my daughter’s roommates was on Millionaire Matchmaker! His name is Matt and he was one of the two guys picked at the mixer for the mini dates. He is a super nice guy. He did not get picked for the final date by the trust fund guy. But I thought he did really well!!! Maybe someone out there in Lynnfam land can check it out!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Can you find our how Stinker is?

      NOT****when cameras are rolling?
      That doesn’t count.

      That’s great ..

      Maybe your daughter should go on?
      Oh wait, typing that I just remembered she’s dating the Turkish guy. Turkish delight. Skyrockets in flight.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        She has been approached by casting to appear on the show, she said no thanks.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Oh and He was worried about how his edit was going to be because Patti WAS mean to him! They didn’t show that, in fact I thought he did really well. Carson Kressley was sweet to him. They had the guys pull their pants down and shake their butts, and they all did it…so…that wasn’t his most dignified moment,I’m sure. But like I said, he is super nice, in the moment, he was just playing along.

  38. LaineyLainey says:

    My daughter works down the street from SUR. she said there is filming going on there tonight. She said there are extras there tonight to sit in the parts of SUR where they are filming. Just a little FYI

  39. ladebra says:

    Oh! Scandal is back tonight! And if you watched Vikings on History channel, season 2 starts tonight. And, I saw this and think it is so sweet ❤️

    PINDY—- I’m starving …..
    Jill won’t give me anything – can you spare an almond from the 5lb costco bag?

    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Oh Girl CALLLMMMM DOWWWNNNN ..I was out to dinner-I had a almond..delish..

      • chismosa™ says:

        Getting the weekend started early I see.


        I’m having a chocolate covered almond

        • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          I was out with my 3 sisters…Mexican food-I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time

    • nyc mama says:

      You both will not be able to model for SI if you continue to pig out like that. Disgusting. I can’t imagine eating so much at one sitting.

      • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

        Hahahaha…nyc you are very funny!!

        • nyc mama says:

          🙂 What is sad is that we are laughing about this and poor Gigi was living it. Bet she is eating more than an almond on her own. Bet she also is having cake.

          I’ll vote for ya!!!


          • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            We HAVE to laugh about it because it’s not our world-we don’t live this nor can we (by we I mean most people I personally know) even relate to it in any sense-this is their reality-not ours-and thank God for that b/c I need to eat-really eat, not just an almond but a cheeseburger or a slice of pizza or some chips and guacamole…and dessert!

          • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

            I wonder what Yoyo will do if GIgi gains the freshman 15 that most college students gain?

        • chismosa™ says:

          Ashy you remember the Sex and the city when the gals go to LA and Miranda meets her old writer friend from ny – and he is on the diet where he chews everything like 30x and then spits it back to his plate

          OMG ……so sad and bad.


          • LaineyLainey says:

            Oh Chismosa, you crackle me up. LOL!!! I actually did watch that episode and that scene was hilarious. Was this the Vince Vaughn episode, where he is someone’s assistant but pretends to be some big producer? Haha! One of the few episodes I actually liked. But as SATC was so fond of doing, every man was portrayed as some sort of buffoon. Ok, ok, I’ll stop.

          • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

            Yes!!! That was gross-Miranda was soooo over him the second he spit into his napkin-so gross!!!

      • chismosa™ says:

        LOL at bulimia.

        Though I know it’s serious.

        Michelle Duggar just said she’s been suffering from it!?!?!

        • lillybee says:

          Michelle lies quite a bit……

          • chismosa™ says:

            Really I don’t know much ….

            But maybe since her husband seems to control so much (jmo) in terms of more kids! more pregnancies !— she may crave some control in some way and an eating disorder can do that???

            I don’t know.

  41. chismosa™ says:

    DONT KNOW how valid this is but it seems the taxman cometh for Kim Z and her McMansion 👏👏👏

    And PHAKEdra has many more issues coming to light.


  42. Pghemtchick says:

    But she has a lady sitter…who was featured on a nanny show <.<

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Well, that’s what she gets. Retrieve is what they do, and they NEVER tire to the point of giving up.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Exactly! Know your animal and with all those kids, someone should be available to tire him out before bed.

        Nice survivor recap! I would have read it earlier but had a 2 hour nap before having to go w/my sister for tests. The perk was it didn’t snow this morning, but we had those squalls on the way home. We sadly watched a 13 car pile up on the other side of the highway-man who’d have thought nuisance snow would do that? Anyways, I digress, I’d like to know the criteria for the “brains” tribe cause well…yeah. Lol. The cop with little man syndrome reminds me of crazy Philiup. Hopefully it stays entertaining.

        • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

          At least you read it 😀 I am going to start calling that tribe the Brain Trust.. I predict just one more week and we’ll see a mixup.. 2 tribes only.. I am more familiar with nuisance snow than I care to be… Hope no one was hurt..

    • California35 says:

      Lol this is a cute one 🙂 i woke up a lot through the night and then woken up very early when my doggy was a puppy 🙂

  43. chismosa™ says:

    VV what is this about???

    And WHERE is the scene of Yo yelling at Ken to not touch her.

    Pindy and Jill—
    Are you kidding that Aviva’s leg was stolen at the restaurant?

    Or was that mini part true?
    I can’t tell when you’re all joshin so much


    • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

      Nobody stole her leg…why the hell would someone steal a leg? She threw that sh*t in a fit of Aviva craziness!!

      • chismosa™ says:

        I don’t CARE for Aviva craziness. It’s hateful.

        That’s why I go for Ramotional Fun crazy.
        More my type.

        • not THAT Jill -Team T-Rex says:

          Aviva is straight up crazy-not fun crazy like Ramona…just mean old crazy…nothing fun about her!!

          • chismosa™ says:

            Exactly. Aviva – her 300 therapists that likely have treated her and her phobias all her life could probably write 1000 articles in the New England Journal of Medicine about her.

            Her phobias are issues of control. Like people afraid of flying
            I wouldn’t be surprised quite honestly if Aviva suffered or suffers from an eating disorder.

    • Kyle told me that Aviva said it was stolen, I didn’t lie or make it all up, it was Kyle, Yolanda was there too, she heard it!

  48. NJBev says:

    Hello Jeff
    How the heck are you doing?? I miss chatting with you-
    I was packing for a well-deserved trip while this episode was
    on, and missed the the last 35 min, but I knew I could count on you
    to break it down for me. It helps that I usually agree with your opinions-
    I could understand where Kass was coming from- no one wants to be
    told what to do by a huge blowhard.. Although I wouldnt
    have been sad to see J’tai go home. She is not strong enough to
    be playing this game.—

    It was fun to watch the brains actually win a challenge this week!
    but we can talk about that next week!
    Muwahh to you for your very much appreciated efforts in keeping us
    all up to date on the happenings of my favorite TV show, “Survivor”
    —-you are my winner, for sure!!
    thank you again,,,,,, 😉

    • MelTheHound - Team T-Rex says:

      Hello, NJBev… Nice to see you.. I agree about Asshat2 (the blowhard).. Mostly because I know from personal experience, that sort of attitude is a mistake. I knew when he started that, he would get eaten alive and that’s what happened.. He got eaten (and spit out)..

      I’m writing the recap for tonight’s show now.. You know where to find me 😉
