Can You Dig It? Day 12-Isla Mysterio. All those goods in the store. Hindi kaya palugi na ang tindahan dahil CAs lang ang customers? Elma and Mico dug for coins. Surprisingly they got fruits wrapped in plastic bags along with some coins. Mico rightfully convinced Elma to save the coins so they may buy something "better" in the future.
Size Matters. Nagar feasted on clams and crabs. Most of the CAs did feel that they were smaller compared to Sar Mayee. People begin to plot to vote out Karen, the Meditating Queen, in the next TC.
Sar Mayee Stretches. Akihiro, Jon, and Ervic decided to get their massages too after the girls had theirs. Jon and Ervic talked about possible CAs that Nagar may vote out if Nagar loses the IC. They guessed that Karen was probably next. Aubrey decided to make conversation with Michelle and patch things up.
Jon continued to make improvements in camp and demanded that the CAs help in improving the condition of the camp. But this rubbed Aubrey the wrong way especially when Jon complained about the shelter and the can they use in cooking rice.
During dinner, Sar Mayee talked about various topics from Karen to other topics.
Kiko Matsing Challenge. The tribes got their tree mail on a rainy day. Nagar and Sar Mayee head to the immunity challenge and are also met by those who came from mystery island. Richard introduces the IC as "Ungoy unguyan challenge". The game will consist of 4 climbers and 3 puzzle solvers. One climber goes up a platform and swing "ala tarzan" to another platform using ropes. In the next platform, a climber gets a bag while climbing a net wall and goes back to his group. When a tribe gets all 4 bags of puzzle, the puzzle solvers can work on it. The first tribe to complete the puzzle wins immunity.
Jon led the strategizing in Sar Mayee which did not go well with Aubrey. It seemed Jon still felt he was the leader and Aubrey did not appreciate it that they were not asked if they could be a puzzle solver or climber.
Mico was asked by his tribe to do the puzzle since they thought he was weak since he came from Isla Mysteryo
Akihiro and Ian were the first to climb for their respective teams. Akihiro had a hard time swinging from rope to rope and actually fell. Ian hangs on for dear life trying to go from one rope to another. Both guys did brought their puzzle bags back to their tribes. Actually the tribes were still neck to neck since Aira and Elma had a hard time traversing the ropes. Nanay Elma is such a sprinter and breezes back to Sar Mayee. Aira had a hard time not only with getting the puzzle bag but with her wardrobe malfunction as well.
Bukas...Continuation of the IC.
No more updates.

Buhawi, Magan's tribe leader was unanimously voted off the game by his tribemates. A day after he left the game, a twist was announced detailing the next part of the game. Magan Tribe will be disbanded and cease to exist and all remaining Castaways will be reshuffled into the two remaining tribes, Sar Mayee and Nagar.
New tribe leaders were to be selected by luck. Each player will pick a stone and whoever got the colored stone will be the tribe's new leader. Red stone for Nagar was drawn by Ahron and the yellow stone was drawn by former Sar Mayee member Akihiro.
Tribe leaders then were to choose members by a school yard pick. Sar Mayee, under Akihiro were to choose first. He chose Aubrey, Ahron of Nagar picked Moi, and the rest are as follows:
Sar Mayee Nagar
Akihiro (TL) Ahron (TL)
Tribes were playing for a reward of relaxation in a form of Thai massage.
Every tribe member must alternately answer trivial questions from their previous challenges, answering the questions right will lead the player to the right key that will unlock the step, a four flight of steps must be unlocked to reach the top platform, there waiting is a totem puzzle inside a locked crate, answer two questions correctly to unlock the crate, gather the pieces of a totem puzzle and build it exactly like the replica provided. The first tribe to correctly assemble the totem wins the reward.
Both tribes were dead even at the start, until a series of incorrect answer left the Nagar tribe behind. Luck seemed to follow former Nagar member John as he made it to the top with quite lead, he then answered the two questions correctly to unlock the crate.
John is already assembling the totem puzzle when Mico of Nagar reaches the top platform and tried to use every key to unlock the crate. A few moments later, John assembles the totem puzzle correctly and claimed their first victory as the new Sar Mayee tribe.
Before the winning tribe gets their reward, Richard announces that each tribe must send a member to "Isla Misteryo". Chosen member from the winning tribe will not take part in their reward. The choices were made and it was Elma from Sar Mayee and Mico from Nagar.
As the tribe of Sar Mayee approaches their camp, John, Nagar's former tribe leader felt great frustration at the site of Sar Mayee’s shelter - if that was to be called one. “Just a bamboo with coconut leaves on top”, John said in his dismay while former Sar Mayee members that are now in Nagar were pleased to have a "real shelter" and a better campsite.
Meanwhile, Mico and Nanay Elma had set foot in "Isla Misteryo". They decided to split and search for what the island could offer to them. Mico was first find the store and the tribal outpost. After learning that the gold coins scattered in the island will allow them to get some items in the store, Elma was then become really eager to find some coins and exchange it for food. Yet her food cravings were abruptly interrupted by Mico as if saying that the food weren't that of worth.
BUKAS: Immunity Challenge
by kapitan bok
Another physician sighting was in the episode tonight. (Oh yes, we are still on Survivor, this isn’t Grey’s Anatomy or House for medical reasons) . Aira’s confidence was enough to overcome her rashes attack and to regain her leader spot in Sar Mayee.
Magan became a mainstay in Tribal Council yet they ended their guesting by ousting Buwi. See you in your Parokya ni Edgar shows, 'pre. (PNE's Pakiusap Lang is out, could match for Buwi's exodus theme song)
Can we notice how Richard was smiling while asking Solenn how was her birthday went??
The threesome Magan not just only hoped for a merge-dissolution of their tribe. They predicted it will be soon based on their number. (Who couldn’t?) . For other tribes, it was a shocking revelation to see Buwi raised the Magan flag last and went together with the extinction of his own tribe. However, in the view of the ill-fated ex-Magan, it was a long overdue decision. The first cast off must have been Buwi if not because of the twisted mutiny fiasco.
And while it may become a mayhem for Sarmayee and Nagar to kiss their tribemates goodbye, Magan is saved at last.
New Leaders by the Stone
The scroll reads:
“Nakalipas na mga araw muling alalahanin,
Dinaanang mga pagsubok, sa isip sariwain;
Ginhawa ng katawan, kayang angkinin,
Kung tuktok ng pyramid, kayang abutin.”
Karen randomly remarked Charice for the “pyramid” . (Glee is trending in Survivor, weh!)
Before the reward challenge, the Castaways were instructed to form a line . Each of them will choose one stone from a black pouch , and will wait for Richard ‘s signal to reveal what color of stone they’ve got.
Red Stone will represent a new leader for Nagar. Yellow for Sar Mayee.
Show, now you are speaking. Finally.
Bugged Out. The bug "Boodle Fight" immunity Challenge continued. Most of the castaways were not grossed out by the challenge. Pero na umay ang CA's sa dami ng kinain. After the challenge, a lot of the castaways were vomiting. Trizsa then made his best impression of a conductor in a orchestra of vomiting castaways. The tribes were weighing in on who had ate the most bugs.
Scorpion King. Even with Aubrey and Trizsa bowing out in the final minutes of the challenge, Sarmayee still got first place thus earning the first half of the immunity idol. Unfortunately Nagar and Magan were tied forcing a face off between Solenn (Is she the strongest eater like Elma is the strongest player of Magan?) and Ian of Nagar. The first one to finish three scorpions wins the second half of the immunity idol. It was a head to toe battle as each CA ate every part of each scorpion. While Solenn had an early lead, Ian was able to forced down the grubs with the help of a lot of water. In his solo interview, Ian proclaims to be the scorpion king. Magan loses again which meant a diner date with Richard at Tribal Council. Don't know if Richard had mixed feelings about this (remember last TC when it looked like he was blushing?)
Fresh Burst. Sarmayee and Nagar each got a free mouthwash from an endorser. Most of the CAs were happy of the simple prize and got a chance to show off their gurgling skills.
A Champion Tries to Bow Out. Magan returned to the tribe humbled by another loss. Miko observed that no one was talking about who they were voting out. Buwi joked around that Elma might be the only one allowed in tribal to council to vote. Elma just said that she would not be disappointed if her three other tribemates stayed. After showing off her eating skills, Solenn gets to display her cooking skills. Everyone was happy as it was a good meal before TC. Would you be happy eating anything else than bugs?
Aira's Allergy Alert. AWW! Karen jokes about their meal and plans to open a business called "rice in a can". Siesta time. But Aira wasn't feeling all to well. She had a serious allergy which may have been caused with all the bugs she ate during the challenge. The situation got worse as the rashes were getting bigger and spreading faster. Her face was getting swollen. Another medical evacuation was done sending Aira to the hospital. Her tribemates feel that she would be back since she wasn't feeling weak but the allergy could have gone worse if it went untreated. Doc Collantes gave a medical update on the I.V. given and a shot of steroids to improve Aira's situation.
Bukas..."Magan, ginagawa niyo ng tambayan ang tribal council."
by Zalds for ANT
Nanay Zita, Justine and Amanda visited the Magan tribe right after they won the rewards challenge to help the tribe out. For dinner, since there was only rice, Justine suggested that they will use the condiments to flavor the rice in lieu of ulam. After eating, the tribe then went to sleep with Nay Zita falling asleep early due to tiredness. Buwi and Mico decided to spend the night at the beach and was later on joined by Amanda and Elma who can't sleep well because of mosquitoes and Nay Zita's snoring =)
Over at Sar Mayee, Aubrey and her tribemates lament the loss of Ervic who they found out during the challenge, was transferred to Nagar tribe without any kapalit. Trisza "sourgrapes" their loss and attribute them to the naglider-lideran. Meanwhile at Nagar tribe, Michelle was about to lie down to sleep but discovered a frog in her bed-spot instead.
Magan tribe woke up with Justine complaining about the insect bites she has suffered. Nay Zita went about washing the clothes of the castaways, with Buwi helping her out by putting up sampayan. Amanda on the other hand, started fixing the tribe shelter while Justine cooked up some adobo flavored rice. But then, Justine was just bluffing. She left the camp for a while and came back with some foods (real ulam as Solenn stated it). As the Magan tribe finished up their meal, Solenn went out to check the tree mail and found a scroll probably containing the announcement for the next Immunity Challenge. The 3 visitors then bid the Magan tribe goodbye and good luck to their next challenge.
Over at Sar Mayee, Karen does some yoga while Trisza checks out the tree mail.
The next immunity challenge will be an eating feast, where Jon (over at Nagar tribe) wants to sit out as he assumes that usually in a Survivor game, the eating challenge usually involve things he does not like to eat.
The 3 tribes arrives at the challenge area where Richard awaits together with Nay Zita, Justine and Amanda. The 3 visitors are seated in a table laden with foods but Aubrey wisely noted that most probably, they will not be eating those foods during the challenge.
It's a boodle fight challenge with simple rules. Finish eating up everything on the plates that includes insects like maggots, scorpions and grasshoppers. Any challenger that will throw up will be eliminated from the game. Additional prize for the winner other than immunity is Listerine mouthwash.
The challenge then started with Karen more nandiri with Trisza rather than what she is eating. Ian is holding his nose while eating, while Moi is consuming a lot of water in order to push the "food" inside. Aira dances her way while eating, while Jon and Trizsa is showing signs of throwing up.
BUKAS: Will Aira's allergic reaction to what they have eaten will cost her the game?
Play with the bugs... before they'll be served for the Immunity Challenge tonight.
Buwi woke up and decided to make a seashell cake for Solenn in celebration of her birthday. With some flowers and a stick on fire to serve as candle, they waited for Solenn to wake up and gave her some birthday cheers. Condoms ba iyung ginamit na ballons??? Somebody please confirm. If ever, para saan yun sa isla?
The group ended their mini celebration with some lugaw cooked by Elma.
Over at Sar Mayee, Karen consulted the group particularly Aubrey for some career advice in which Aubrey replied that Karen will try posing for FHM (utang na loob). I agree with Trisza's comment: Ahh, FHM.. sinong cover? (Karen po).. Ay.. sorry na lang po.
The group is still worried about Ervic who went to another camp (Nagar).
Over at Nagar camp, Jon and Michelle try to convince Ian to get Ervic into their alliance. But Ervic convinced him not to have an alliance with Michelle and Jon, base on the fact that Michelle did not reveal to them about the coins.
Tree mail came to the tribe followed by the three guests in the form of Justine, my SP1 fav CA Nanay Zita and the Mandy-ficent and Mander-rific AMANDA!!! (walang basagan ng trip, obvious naman kung sinong CA ang pinaka-idol ko)
First to be visited, Magan tribe. After some usual pleasantries and exchanges of hi's and hello's, the visitors delivered to the tribe the crate containing things that will be use in an activity that evening during the rewards challenge. Nay Zita, Justine and Amanda then visited Sar Mayee and Nagar.
Between the three tribes, the visitors noted that Nagar tribe members are not much hospitable compared to the other two, probably due to the fact that they are more strong and well rewarded in the challenges. Quotable quote from Gina.. este Karen, "Hindi ako na-starstruck sa kanila.." (Tingnan na lang natin kung tatagal ka din tulad ng tinagal nila Justine, Nay Zita at Amanda)
Back at Magan tribe, the tribe members are busy with the choreography of their presentation (with some variety as proposed by Buwi or Mico). They came up with a Tarzan presentation with Elma as cheetah, Buwi as Tarzan and Solenn as Jane. Solenn then prepares their costume and Mico comes up with some dance moves. Later on, Nay Zita came back offering them some advice. Afterwhich she bid them goodbye after rendering a prayer to the group, which according to Nay Zita, are bonding like a family.
Over at Sar Mayee tribe, Justine came back and narrates her story during her stint in SP season 2. She also help the tribe as they prepare their costumes. After making their costumes, the tribe then practice their (dance) presentation.
BUKAS: Dance presentations as rewards challenge and some bromance quarrel between Ervic and Ian.
After 3 years reading posts on dotcom and watching 2.5 seasons of Survivor Philippines, we now again have a special treat. Not to worry my 5 avid readers, you will now enter the world of a very much seasoned journal writer. No, its not that Kiko dude who wrote his stuff here in season 1. A man with more celebrity status that can bring in the throngs of new readers. No, its not that ritsard guy. A man who also has a medical degree that can give more integrity to these articles and provide better insight to the behavior of the castaways. No, its not Doctor Phil.
Anyway, the future articles are parts of the entire DOCumentation of all his thoughts, experiences, and other things he gained during the celebrity showdown. Unfortunately, everything was in doctor's hand writing so re writing it was a big challenge. Don't worry it will be interpreted as close to what the doc intended it to be. We hope. But whether its close to the original writing or not, it will be very entertaining. :) So watch out next week as we join the doc's journey.
For now here is a preview of some excerpts in his articles
2nd Season in Thailand. ....I realized hindi sa ibang bansa katulad ng Burma kundi Thailand uli, I thought, "Yes magagamit ko na ang mga binigay na tips ni Kiko at JC."...it wasn't ata the same island na tinirhan ng Naak...Our tribe had no choice but to start again from scratch especially in making a "shovel area" or where you relieve yourself.
The Boss. ... that was a misunderstanding. I never ordered people around. I'm a doctor and not a boss. I was only "prescribing" what my tribemates should be doing in camp like: "Maykah, get crabs - 2 times a day" or "Buwi, collect firewood 3 times a day". Whats wrong with that? I think if they religiously followed my prescriptions, we would have been a strong and healthy tribe.
After the vote out. ...surprised with my early exit especially when I thought I still had a lot more to offer. I could have shared the tips that Kiko, JC, and Amanda gave me. Hindi masama loob ko kay Buwi at hindi ko na inisip na mas karapat dapat ako mag stay kaysa kay Maykah. Pero that was only after we all got back to pinas. Joke lang. But I did feel bad.
Doc is out. ...I was down but not out....being a cast off had its privileges...got to do some segments for BTBW...got to interview Maykah after her vote out...or was it Mystery Camper who I interviewed?...anyway, who would have known that the real journey was just beginning?
So kelan magsisimula ang Doctor's Prescription? Abangan...next week.
- The mind blowing, crazy twist from last week's tribal council, the vote for tonight went to Myka. If and only if.. Is Mayor B's tribe gradually drifting away from the game?
- Consulting Mama Elma regarding his decision of booting out Doc Ferdz from the Magan, Buwi announced eventually in the second TC that he don't regret his vote from the first tribal council.
- Mico and Buwi's biceps and packed abs were insulted, thanks to Mama Elma's golden- Olympic-inspired legs .
Pero sa pagbabalik ng mga tribo sa kanilang camp, kasing dilim din ng gabi ang mga sumunod na pangyayari. Ok, back to english-tagalog mode for our international readers.
NAGAR: Not Happy Campers. Jon, Michelle, and Ian were still fuming mad because Moi gave away some of their extra "pawid" and rope. As the argument dragged on, other stuff like Ahron and Moi getting too much rice during the feast also became an issue. The faction between Moi and Ahron versus Jon, Michelle, and Ian became very apparent. The argument was resolved when Ahron gave a sarcastic apology to Jon.
SAR MAYEE: Underestimated. Aki spills the beans about his conversation with Michelle from Nagar. Michelle told Aki not to trust his tribemates. This ired Sar Mayee because: 1) Nagar thinks they will continue to win the the challenges 2) so Aki should be careful if he would be the next to be voted off since Sar Mayee will not win any of the challenges.
MAGAN: Maykah's Darkest Hour. Magan was without fire but a lot of mosquito bites. But this was nothing compared to what was to come. Maykah's condition turned from bad to worst. Chills settled in and her body was obviously shutting down. Doc Rueben Apostol was the assigned doctor for the camp and readily diagnosed Maykah. Doc continually asked Maykah not to fall asleep as she might totally pass out and her body may just shut down completely.
RG then spieled about what we already knew about what was happening to Maykah. Anyway, the consensus was that the SP Emergency Medical and Rescue Team have a medical evacuation and bring Maykah to the hospital. She had a piggyback ride. Then she decided to walk. Eventually they had to lay her down on a stretcher but this just tempted Maykah to fall asleep.
In the hospital, Doc Ryan Collantes updated us that Maykah suffered from dehydration then hypothermia. If she was not admitted to the hospital, she would have totally passed out and complicated her condition. Maykah wasn't worried about her condition. She was more worried that she couldn't contribute to the tribe as long as she was in the hospital. Rewinding a bit, most of her tribemates felt it was best that Maykah was sent to the hospital because the tribe was weak and they still had to make extra effort to take care of Maykah.
"Captive" Castaway. A new day begins. With all the fighting about the angus beef and rice and Michelle regaining her invaluable top, we forgot about the "biggest" reward that Nagar got: another scroll. Personally, I thought the Nagar men freaked out when Moi was dangling a pair of shackles in front of them. Too freaky? Anyway, the scroll cleared the air explaining Nagar will get an extra member by capturing a CA from Sar Mayee.
Though Nagar deliberated on who they would abduct, they knew that they wouldn't want Trizsa or Karen for obvious reasons. They began targeting Aubrey since they would vote her out anyway by losing the next immunity challenge.
At Sar Mayee they had the surprise of their lives with a tree mail instructing them to get their strongest member to the beach and get a reward. They first thought of picking Aki but realized he was too weak because of the previous challenge. They assigned Ervic to go probably because it gives him something to do instead of sleeping during work hours. Hapontukin kasi.
Ervic went to the beach and is surprised that there was nothing in a small bowl. When Jon and Ian came to "capture" him he was a willing victim because Nagar had a better shelter then what he had in Sar Mayee. He was later made aware that he was now part of Nagar to which he commented "Ok lang." I think he was hiding his jubilation that he and Ahron would be back together again. Do I smell bromance?
Jon hoped that Ian can persuade Ervic now that Aubrey for the time being couldn't use her flirting powers to control him. Alas, Moi and Ahron were already firming up an alliance with Ervic. I think the John and Jace bromance from season 1 is back with the pairing up of Ervic and Ahron. Yay!
TC is up tomorrow. RG brings up the loss of Doc Ferds. Miko feels that it was a big loss. No word on Maykah's return or exit from the game though we did see an interview after she was hospitalized.

Pikot-ikot, pasikot sikot… Thus began the tree mail that each tribe received with regards to the impending second Immunity Challenge. The Castaways’ attempt at guessing correctly proved futile as the match mechanics are presented to them. With the onset of another rainy day, the tribes are asked to nominate who among their members is the strongest. Jon was the obnious choice for Nagar. Akihiro was chosen for Sar Mayee and Elma for Magan. “Buwi doesn’t look physically strong.” Said Solenn, on the reason for the Strong Mama’s choice.
Spin It, Win It!
As for the other members, each will take turns in the spinball contraption. When a ball sinks in a hole, the number associated to it will be recorded in their team’s roster. After all the necessary turns are made, the scores will be totaled. One point is equivalent to a kilo of weight that their strong-person will carry. The one who lets go of the burden looses the challenge for the tribe and they will vote out one member in the next Tribal Council. So the objective is to get the least score possible. At first, everything seemed to go well with Magan with both Buwi & Myka scoring the lowest number 1. However, Solenn scored a 5. The final tally stand thus: Magar at 26, Sar Mayee at 23 and Nagar at 22.
“Hindi ako tumanggi dahil gusto kong ipakita kung hanggang saan ang makakaya ko.” Said Elma, owing to the fact that she was chosen over the other two males in the tribe. Besides having to shoulder the most weight, Magan didn’t do her any favors when they loaded her with uneven burden. How much mess-up can one tribe do? During the endurance challenge, Jon was giving Mama Elma some trash talk, trying to get into her head. He realized that he appeared arrogant but he justified it with his determination to win Survivor, or maybe the big ol’ target on his forehead is not prominent enough. Eventually, Elma had to drop the load. She could not go on because of the abrasion on her back caused by the load-pole. When she went down, everyone in every tribe congregated on her. She may have lost, but she gained the respect of all, including Jon.
Feasting on Deviousness
When Richard presented Sar Mayee & Nagar the split Immunity Idol once more, he also added (yet again) another scroll. This was read immediately. It tells about the feast awaiting both winning tribes including meat that they can cook for dinner. Unfortunately for Karen, she won’t be able to enjoy that part of the reward as she doesn’t eat meat. Sar Mayee joined Nagar at their camp for the feast. The former was impressed with the quality of their shelter while the later tried to be good hosts. However, the goodwill didn’t last for long. Trizsa snuck in a chansing hug with Ian which the youngster didn’t like. Jon was annoyed by Karen’s loud voice. Michelle kept sneaking in taste test whenever a new batch of meat was done in the barbecue which Karen and Aubrey noticed and frowned upon. Ian tried to fish for info from Aubrey and the Hot Mama just spun tales. She did warn him about Jon & Michelle about which Ian promptly reported to the other two. “Aubrey had it in for me since day one.” said Jon. “In every season in Survivor, there is always a flirt.” referring to Aubrey. But it wasn’t just tribe against tribe. Jon was very displeased when Ahron grabbed half of the rice that was being shared by him, Michelle and Ian. When the wine flowed, Trizsa started entertaining them. She confided on camera that he thinks Ian is not totally straight. He seemed to think he has a built-in gaydar. Michelle tried to talk to Akihiro but Aubreywas watching like a hawk. So now the Hot Mama was starting to get on her nerves.
Before being shooed away, er, leaving Nagar’s camp, Sar Mayee asked for some extra stuff they had which the latter can use to improve their pathetic dwelling. Moi gamely grabbed stuff here and there and gave it to the departing tribe. With the exception of Ahron, the others were displeased with this. To them the objective was to make the other camps as miserable as possible to give them a better edge at challenges. “First of all, you are not the leader of the tribe. Second of all, who gave you the power to make decisions to give away anything?” Jon said.
Tomorrow: The blame game. Nagar bite each other’s head off. Another medical emergency for Myka?
WALA AKONG SALA! - Grazilda
Everything rises and falls on leadership - that was what we've been seeing in the past few challenges. Nagar consistently performs as a team - John so far never fails to lead affirmatively. Sar Mayee is struggling. Magan, as we all know, has leadership woes and is beginning to shatter.
The Gear Puzzle Challenge last night was actually anybody's game. Any tribe has the mental capacity to win it, regardless of any one's built. It's a matter of taking commands in stride and executing properly. Too bad, panic has gotten too early for Sar Mayee that cost them the game. Karen, who self-proclaimed her expertise in puzzle solving, confidently assumed the frontman's role, but caught herself 'puzzled' right at the start and eventually got lost. The rest of Sar Mayee were left in disbelief as they just stare at their mate who couldn't figure out the right strategy, while Ervic and Aubrey, who sat out the challenge, tried to provide instructions. Akihiro evidently lost his 'kumpiyansa' with Karen. Who wouldn't? If what's at stake is RICE - carbs man! San ka ba galing, Gina?
Magan, which selected Mico to assemble the gear puzzle, finished second and were able to save ample amount of rice for their tribe. They also got to take back 3 items from those that were stolen on their camp. Good for them they were able to execute faster than Aira's tribe. Mykah's non-participation could have actually helped - the Bubble Gangster has the tendency to instill panic. The sultry Solenn continues to got me glued on the set
Nagar, which finished first has got to take back everything that were stolen from their camp (Michelle's bikini included), plus more rice as they were the earliest to prevent it from draining. Their cohesive system is just so impressive.
Meanwhile, Ian should realize that he actually holds the greatest power over at Nagar tribe. He has all the power to dissolve the Michelle-John romance, err, alliance and stay put at the latter part of the game. But would that really matter? If Nagar continues the winning streak, chances are, they will all be brought til the merger , and the numbers will change power.
Does Karen's mediocre performance put her in danger over at Sar Mayee? I think the girls' alliance is still intact and their target remains the pa-girl.
After their Tribal Council, Buhawi was affected by the silence of the tribe over his decision of which Miko was in fact affected by Doc Ferds departure.
Morning came, Buwi still was concerned by his decision so he consults Elma.
Elma to Buwi: Desisyon mo yan kaya panindigan mo kasi tapos na yan.
Over at Nagar camp, Moi goes on with her work while her teammates are still asleep.
Moi: Pinapakita ko lang kung ano talaga ako (masipag)
(First Treemail of the Day)
Sar Mayee: Trisza was chosen to stay and guard their camp.
Jon, Michelle and Ian discussed some strategy on who will be left at the camp (between the three of them) considering that the one that will be left at the camp will be handed a clue. But later on, they decided that Moi will be left out.
(Second Treemail of the Day)
Mykah, Trisza and Moi (who were left out by their tribemates) receive a 2nd tree mail that states that they can go to other camps and steal some things that their respective tribe can use.
Their tribemates meanwhile embark on a seeking challenge for hidden clues to a possible reward or immunity.
Akihiro found a clue.
Trizsa raids the Magan camp looking for their rice supply.
Moi raids the Sar Mayee camp and took the water jug.
Mykah raids the Nagar camp and took the water jug also and some clothes.
The tribes are back from their seeking quests. Trizsa explained the raiding challenge and showed what he took (the cooking pot and the water pot). Trizsa also described to her tribe the shelter of Magan.
Over at Nagar, they discover that some of their things was missing and was alarmed. Later on, Moi arrived with the pot and things she took from Sar Mayee's camp. She also described the shelter of Sar Mayee while Jon notes that they lost more compared to what Moi has brought (?).
At Magan camp, Mykah arrives with the things she took from Nagar camp. Elma complains that they lost their cooking pot and other essential things. Buwi concurred stating that they lost at lot of things. He also shares that Mykah did not thought beforehand that their camp will be raided too and that she should have hidden some of their things prior to raiding the other camp.
BUKAS: A lot where surprised when they found out that Doc Ferds was voted out. Rain or shine, a reward challenge will push through. And.. "Because of medical reasons, Mykah will not play.."
Our exclusive interrogation este interview with our inside source who we will call Mystery Camper or MC. But since we couldn't compel him to say anything thru torture, we had to use the old reliable truth serum: SangSom rhum. Here are his revelations. We hope.
#1 Tribe names being Burmese in origin. "Look, it was not my fault that the staff, crew, castaways, RG, and the Filipino reporters for the press-con were not booked in Burma. How the hell we ended up in Thailand, I still do not know. Good thing Survivor Poland just finished their shooting so we ended up using their stuff...wait I wasn't supposed to reveal that. SangSom, traydor ka!"
#2 CAs nabbed during the press-con. "I specifically told them to get Pia not that Ian dude. They only realized the mix up when the CAs were already in the mangrove.They were looking for the "IAN" nametag when they could only find the "PIA" nametag. Dinoktor na lang ni Doc Ferds. Sorry for the pun pero ganun na nga nangyari."
#3 RG's Helicopter Stunt. "Ok, hindi ko siya tinulak palabas ng chopper. May turbulence lang at na bangga ko siya. Pero I did not push him. Ok?"
#4 Burning of CA's luggage. "The staff and crew used to do practical jokes to the previous host. We thought it was funny to replace the CAs bags with RG's. We honestly forgot to remove the items inside. I think RG took it with stride."
#5 Only one tribe. "Please refer to #1. Because of the mix up, we were still preparing the three camps. If the CA's only knew...OMG! Pwedeng off the record na lang itong part?"
#6 First Castoff in just 2 days. "Ay, oo naman concerned kami sa well being niya kaya we booked her flight back to Burma...@$#$! No wonder hindi siya agad naka uwi sa pinas! Not another mix up!"
# 7 Unpretty Trizsa. "All I can say is that it took guts doing that. Kahit ang Bad Boy of Philippine Primetime nung season 1 ay hindi ginawa yung threat niya sa water source. Anyway, it got worse as the day went on. He kept asking for peanut butter sa staff and crew. We later confirmed he was a peanut butter addict. Tsk, tsk, tsk."
#8 Doc in the wild. "Malaki talaga epekto ng gutom. There was a time a King Cobra blocked his path. Doc just stood there. Then suddenly without warning, he faced our camera and was already giving a full description of the King Cobra na parang galing sa wikipedia. He observed daw na it needed his medical attention and was about to do a minor surgery on the cobra. Akala mo nasa sariling niyang show eh nasa SP siya. Naku, paki alis na lang yun. Covered pala iyan ng doctor-patient privilege "
#9 Doc is out. "Totoo na nagselos ang tribe leader kay doc dahil sa closeness niya sa isang female na katribo at eto ang tunay na dahilan sa pagtanggal kay doc. When she was about to quit, Doc comforted her not to just give up but fight. Malay ba ni Doc na ganon na lang pala ang pagtingin ni tribe leader kay Bidang Extra?"
#10 Resident psychologist to the stars and celebrities. "Magaling si Doc Lilian dahil dalawang CAs ang nagpa konsulta sa kanya in a matter of 6 days. Hindi ko lang maiintindihan kung bakit palagi ako pinapapunta ng boss ko kay doc for therapy sessions. I'm not baliw or anything. Or am I?"
Finally, Introduction of the Tribe Leader (TL). "The power given to the TL has changed the dynamics of the social game of SP. In reality, such privilege has been accorded to men of authority in order to keep their subordinates in line and assure that the superior is given the command and respect. Therefore, the alliance that is really worth having is with the leader minimizing or even negating the ill-effects of having factions within the group. The tribe is forced to act as one unit in the guidance of the TL. Those who oppose will suffer the consequences...OMG! Nosebleed!"
MC faints. Tried to revive him with the scent of SangSom to no avail. End of Interview.
Since it's weekend off... and no recap to write about... and some were disappointed at the result of last night's Tribal Council... how about some cool games? (just for the weekend)
Play more Survivor Games at:
by Santa Klaus
Hello there folks! I was called by Kapitan Bok to do the recap. Since she was still busy with …ah okay I don’t mean to disclose what the hell that kapitan is doing right now. What a good timing that it’s a holiday today. Oh,yes! We have a holiday in North Pole too! Besides, if I won’t be closing the gift factory today , those minions will again protest for a wage increase, dang!
Oh , Doc Ferdz left the wild already?
But for the sake of others who missed the show like I did (Muchos gracias for the link, KB), here it goes:
FIRST EIGHT MINUTES OF THE SHOW
Wet Trizsa: “Naubos ng pagkain ang utak ko.” (No more poop replays thank goodness)
Anti –Gamol Karen: “Can you just shut up?Why would I hear a crappy story about you ?”
Reality Resident Aubrey: “Totoong show tong Survivor”
Skeptical Michelle: “Pagbalik ko, si Jon iba na ang sinasabi”
Newbie Ahron: “That’s part of the game PALA dito”
EARLY CHRISTMAS TREAT
I’ m thinking of giving Angel Locsin a one year shampoo-free hair.
The Mexican hat of Vic Sotto is soooo cool! I gotta call him! I need a new hat!
Open Happiness ! That’s my main job description! LOL
- Sar Mayee:
Aubrey 's bed time stories: Kiss and Tell about her rollercoaster relationship with ex-boyfriend, Jon.
Liquid Buwi: "Nagtataka ako kay Doc, dahil kami, isa sa mga unang naguusap nung mga first camps about strategies, about wha'ts goin on. Here this time, hindi niya ako kinakausap whatsoever. Especially on what's goin on tonight."
Solid Doc: "If not, kelan pa? Kung ngayon, watak watak na.."
Mico: "Mahirap naman sa isang grupo na, isang leader tapos may isang leader din."
STILL AN EARLY CHRISTMAS TREAT
Yo, can I try that Surf thing? Will that make me smarter and wise?
This is interesting, Grazilda story! I’ll reserve a surprise gift for her then. Better be good, lass.
Open Happiness! I was reminded a lot of times already, thank you!
RG talks to Magan about the politics, camp life and pointed out why they are in Tribal Council in the first place by reminiscing the mistakes the tribe had made.
Surprise! The agony of the Magan tribemates to vote one out tonight was passed on to Buwi. Aside from enjoying a sumptuous meal the other day, he has the power to oust one member as he wish.
Mika’s dreams came true since she was good. She’s like the ‘lil gals whom I’m bringing new dolls every year! But she cried though while watching his first-buddy leaving the TC. Are those tears of joy ? If not, cheer up dear, you won’t be missing him that much, his stuff were left in the island!
Fishing Gear at stake, but I heard the island is rampant of low tide problems . I wonder how they ever gonna use such stuff. It's crazy you know.
Gee, I think managing the gift factory is far much better than doing the recap daily. So this could be my last. Nyt ‘ya all!
And by the way, advance
And by the way, advanceMerry Christmas! As my final treat to ya'all, I'll be giving free Santa Cappuccino, just PM me right away!
by Kapitan Bok The Pretty Trizsa finds himself feeling uglier each day in the island as he reaches his "breaking point", gets emotional, and wants to call it quits. But let us go back to where the whining started: (Thanks to Bunsoy for the filler) After the reward challenge, the three tribes went back to their camp. Michelle from Nagar tribe was surprised to see their camp since she has been away in the Isla Misteryo. She narrated the changes in their camp like the firepit, the bench, and their shelter. She was also asked by her tribemates if what’s in the Isla Misteryo. Despite of what Michelle found out, she keep it to herself about the gold coins from the island. She secretly hid the seven coins for future use. In opposite to Michelle, Akihiro excitedly showed the gold coins. His tribemates was so amazed and decided to keep the coins for future use. Aira kept the coins for safety. (But Ervic and Aubrey went skeptical). Akihiro settled himself to form an alliance with Ervic and Aubrey. Here comes another activity that will purposely tickle the CA’s instincts. Of course, the Mayor will enjoy a sumptuous meal (from sandwich and peanut butter, to fruits for breakfast; to curry for lunch; to leche flan for siesta and ending it all up by a mouthwatering roasted chicken for dinner) . However, the tribe leader (they keep on saying Mayor) have the option to share it to his tribe mates in exchange of his wishes. The next food servings were unannounced. If you are fond of the typical boss/ganglords and alipin set up in our local movies, you can picture these scenarios: Nagar: Mayor Jon doesn’t put his heart on to it. As much as he confessed that he hated the feast, he seemed to enjoy it, initially picking Michelle. But the helicopter exhibition wasn’t her girlfriend’s favorite. The peanut butter and fruits went to Ian instead. Aaron shared a half joke in exchange for the curry. Michelle dived in the leche flan finally. Moi made numerous jumps before she savored the sarap-to-the-bones roasted chicken. (Oh well, the yaya who’s accustomed to eat last, get the big meal! Lucky Yaya! ) Magan: Buwi”s “fair“quizbee benefited Mico to munch the sandwich (and what’s with the helicopters in this season?), while Elma lured for the chicken curry. Doc Ferdz, must first eat his pride before the leche flan. However, he again complained about Buwi’s chicken offering to Myka. All except Myka went under the table discussions about the existing alliances that Buwi is aware of. Mico is willing to follow Buwi’s lead. Elma laid their chances of losing the succeeding challenges. Doc Ferdz was convinced about the clean-cut alliance. Later after the feast , Buwi approached the lone myka in the beach and dropped the question to her of whether she want to stay longer. Myka retracted with anguish giving emphasis that yes, she yearns to be with her tribe mates more than to be at home. Sar Mayee: I made this last since I’m wondering how far their appetite went--because prior to visitor’s arrival, the Pretty Trizsa did the unpretty. Tribemates went mad after learning about their dearest sleeping beauty-turned-ugly left his poop near the water source. While the flies swarmed liberally on it, Karen , Aubrey , and Akihiro were totally disgusted that even Karen almost blurted foul words in front of her tribemates. Aira arrived, her 19 seashells/crabs were no longer a good news. She then confronted Trizsa. The Pretty then admitted (have I seen a proud face here?). No apologies heard. Yet, he confessed that his poop drop was intentional. After all. Karen: (Confessed disgustingly) Yuccckkkk talaga! Eto a..Im sorry.. Nakakadiri siya, Im sorry talaga….Poor ang hygene dito eh. Alam naman natin lahat yan di ba. Walang ligo, walang toothbrush. Nothing. Pero! My gaaaawd naman! Gaano ka kaburara, gaano ka ka-GAMOL, na pupupu ka ..ni hindi ka man lang lumayo . Hindi ka man lang gumamit ng shovel..Di ka man lang gumamit ng…alam mo yon? My gawwwd napakababoy!....yung reaction ko nung una parang…@$%%^$..sorry..yon! ganon ang reaction ko! Aira’s share: Karen for the breakfast; Akihiro’s jokes over lunch ( Flashback: Suzuki’s classic antics during season 2); It was not shown who shared with Aira for the leche flan and chicken, but one thing was for sure. Trizsa was deprived of a decent meal ‘tis time, as Aira explained that she must give priority to those who are sharing their efforts in the camp. Too bad for Trisza, sleeping wasn’t included in Mayora’s list. No more surprises about Trizsa’s quitting the game, since we heard the word Gutom once again. The pretty doesn’t wear his usual tube blouse. He was in tears while explaining how he’s starving. He looked like Princess Snell . He sounded like Princess Snell. And while their resident psychologist’s popularity is gradually increasing , Trizsa’s stories of agonies, wet undies , wet shelter , empty stomach topped with the recent food deprivation may conclude that he is indeed be going home. And if he does, will the Magan Tribal Council push through?
It could have been a laid back episode after the reward challenge kicked off yesterday, but surprisingly the inconvenient camp life drove the Celebs-turned- Castaways crazy.
"May bisitang dadalaw sa inyong tribo para maghandog ng ilang regalo.Pero ang mayor lamang ang makikinabang dito. Pero pwede siyang hingan ng biyaya, pumayag lamang sa kanyang ipapagawa."

Isla Misteryo Revealed
As the 3 elected castaways by their respective tribes, Akihiro, Michelle and Solenn arrived at Isla Misteryo. After each Reward Challenge, 3 members from each tribe will spend a day here. All around the area are gold coins that they can use to purchase items from the local Mysteryo Store. Among the items are the much coveted food, toiletries, precious objects from home (such as family pictures) and… Immunity Bracelets. The three wasted no time in hunting for the loot. Michelle noted Solenn’s kindness in offering her 10 coins so that they can eat.
The meaning of the tribes names were also explained, which we’ll skip already as it has been resourcefully researched by ASDF and dutifully recapped by Bunsoy last night.
And then they were 3. Camps that is…
In Nagar’s camp, the promised special guest was JC Tiuseco, Season 1’s Sole Survivor. John wasn’t very impressed. “Don’t get me wrong, but…” he said, continuing that he hopes JC can contribute something significant for the tribe. JC tried to help Moi with the fire but he noted that the flint they were using was different from what he was used to. They worked till night, building the shelter with Moi appearing to take the role of 2nd in command. JC noted her habit of giving off orders with Ian being the frequent recipient. Ian, as well, was aware of this and liked it not.
In Magan, Mico started to work on the fire and the others went around doing other chores. Still smarting from their recent defeat, they vented their energies in the setting up of their camp. Myka commented that Doc Ferds liked giving orders, to her, in particular. “Di ba lahat naman kami nagtatrabaho?” she quipped. When darkness fell, they said some prayers before partaking in the food. Doc led the first one with homage to Jesus. Buwi was next but he wasn’t used to leading prayers. He also paid respect to Jesus but added some for the local spirits/natural elements, to which Doc Ferds disagreed with him on the need to do so. Buwi felt slightly offended with that.
In Sar Mayee, Aubrey was observing the budding hierarchy. She noticed that Karen had become the apparent 2nd in command after Aira. Ervic on the otherhand was feeling dejected. With Akihiro gone, he was the only male left in their tribe. Missing someone to bond with, he just glumly followed whatever the others order him to do, distancing himself from the girls. Trisza, tried to engage him in conversation while Karen just felt that Ervic had no initiative. Later that night, Aira accidentally broke their cooking pot. Fearing the ire of her tribemates, she was profusely apologetic.
I guess, Richard wants his very own catchphrase. Really, really.
Tree mail arrived and Elma read the one for Magan. The message contained clues to the next competition which was the first Immunity Challenge of the season. Before it started, the Isla Misteryo folks rejoined their tribes. The challenge was a race to row their boats towards the tribe flag, floating in the water. Along the way, pieces for a ladder needed to be picked up. Once the ladder parts and flag are taken, they race back to shore, build the ladder and hoist the flag up on a platform. The leaders were only allowed to retrieve the objects and hoist the flag. The rest of the tasks (rowing, assembling) would be done by the rest. At stake was the Immunity Idol. But since there are 3 tribes, the Immunity Idol can sometimes be split into two. As was the case at that time, there were to be two winners. The losing tribe goes to Tribal Council.
Sar Mayee (Trizsa sat out) was the first in their boat but Nagar took early lead, with John having a very good strategy with the rowing instructions for his tribe. Magan (Solenn sat out) started veering off-course, causing Buwi to panic. In a tense moment, Mico was asking him what to do and he was just confused. Sar Mayee was progressing well but they forgot one of the ladder pieces. They, too started panicking at this point. Magan & Sar Mayee’s boats hit each other near the flag floats. It seemed that the two tribes were falling apart. Nagar’s flag & ladder piece dropped on their way to shore but was retrieved quickly by John. They were the first on shore. You can really tell how strenuous this challenge was. Aira was having a difficult time wading in the shallow waters, looking for their last piece. Magan was next on shore and started building the ladder. Finally an exhausted Aira found the missing piece. At this stage, everyone was on shore. Nagar’s good lead shrunk to almost nothing because they had difficulty assembling their ladder. Sar Mayee, meanwhile made up for lost time. In the end, Nagar was first on the platform with Sar Mayee 2nd. Magan will now face the fact that one of them will be voted out.
Tomorrow: Trisza wails for food.
Doc Ferds got the treemail, a clue for the challenge...
