Survivor Palau Started Today!

I'm talking about the Sunday replays of the Survivor series. Yung Sunday replays ang napapanood ko dahil may work ako every weekdays.

Grabe! Maraming twists sa Day 1 pa lang! Yung mga contestants, naabutan kong nakasakay kaagad sa boat, dala-dala lang nila ang clothes they're already wearing, like what the castaways did in Survivor Pearl Islands. There are 20 castaways in all.

Umpisa pa lang ng laban, immunity challenge kaagad! The first challenge was a pure immunity challenge, and the second one is a combined reward-immunity challenge.

The first bootees after the first immunity challenge were not voted out via Tribal Council. Ang nangyari ay, nung nakasakay silang lahat sa iisang boat, binigyan sila ng challenge na kailangan nilang mag-unahan papunta sa isang island, which is not that far away pero considered malayo na kung lalanguyin. Sa island na iyon, merong flag ng Survivor Palau at meron ding dalawang immunity necklaces. The first man and woman who get those necklaces win a ten-minute immunity(!). So at the word go, nagsimula na silang magsagwan lahat papunta sa island. Yung iba sa kanila, pumuwesto na kaagad sa unahan ng boat para makababa kaagad sila sa island pag nakarating na doon ang boat. Pero dalawa sa kanila, isang babae at isang lalaki, ang tumalon papunta sa tubig. Akala nila ay mauunahan nila ang boat. Nagkamali pala sila! Naiwan tuloy sila ng boat. Then nung nakarating silang lahat sa island, nakuha nina Ian the bespectacled dolphin-trainer at Jolanda the lawyer ang kuwintas, so sila ang nakakuha ng immunity.

Hehehe, natatawa ako dun sa babaeng nagkaka-kanta sa boat, parang walang pakialam sa sasabihin ng mga kasama, basta kumanta lang siya ng "Survivor theme song" (na I think inimbento lang niya). Nagtawanan yung iba, samantalang may isa sa kanila na nainis at tinawag siyang lunatic. Ang singing girl na yon ay si Wanda the English teacher. Actually, I think ang majority sa kanila ay naiinis kay Wanda.

Pero magbabago ang pagtingin nila kay Wanda maya-maya after the first immunity challenge. Like I said, hindi sila dumaan sa isang Tribal Council, kaya na-eliminate ang dalawang castaways without the council's "due process". Ang pinagawa sa kanila ni Jeff Probst the host ay, pinaghati sila into two groups of 9 members each. So that's a total of 18 castaways who will be playing the game. But since 20 silang lahat, merong mae-eliminate na dalawang castaways. Ang naging process of grouping ay ganito: Starting with Ian (who's assigned to the Koror (brown) tribe) and Jolanda (who's assigned to the Ulong (blue) tribe), they started calling a castaway, alternating between the sexes. (So since lalaki si Ian, ang kailangan niyang tawagin ay babae, and so on.) The called castaway will do the same process, hanggang sa mabuo na ang kanilang tribe. Ang maiwan ay eliminated na from the game. Through this process, eventually may naiwan na isang babae at isang lalaki, at sila ay automatically eliminated. It so happened na ang naiwan na babae ay si Wanda, pero nakangiti pa rin siya kahit eliminated na siya at kanta ng kanta pa rin ng "theme song" ng survivor. Maraming naiyak para kay Wanda.

The next challenge is a mixed obstacle-course type of challenge, pero at the course of the game, merong kukunin na mga items ang bawat tribe. After the game, babaunin nila ang mga items na iyon. Ang mga items na iyon ay magiging useful sa kanilang stay sa islands. Ang dinala ng Koror tribe ay isang flint (for making fire) lang, samantalang nagpakahirap ang Ulong tribe sa pagkuha ng lahat ng items except flint! Sa challenge na ito, nanalo ang Koror tribe. Dadaan sa Tribal Council ang Ulong tribe.

Sa Ulong tribe, may mga babae na naiinis kay Jolanda dahil sa kanyang pagiging bossy. In particular, inis sina Angie the tatooed g-stringed bartender, si Stephanie the parmaceutical rep at si Ashlee the student. Sa Tribal Council, nagpaparamihan ng votes sina Angie at Jolanda. Eventually, Jolanda was voted out.

May mga nakilala na kaagad akong castaways sa Survivor series na ito. Madalas ma-interview si Coby the hairdresser, at ang dami-dami niyang air time because of those interviews. Kahit bading siya ay malaki naman ang katawan. Nandyan din si Tom the NYC firefighter. Type ko yung isang babae doon na naka-black tops at gray miniskirt. (Pero sa umpisa ng show, kulay pink ang pang-itaas niya, but still wearing that miniskirt.) Problema, di ko alam yung name niya.

Aabang-abangan ko ito every Sundays.
