Haha, as soon as I saw Jeff getting rained on, I immediately thought of all of you here that love those pics of him wet.

Jeff was right in his blog about this being an episode we'd all enjoy. Waiting two weeks for a new episode was worth the wait. They still got rid of two people.

Jeff Probst blogs 'Survivor: Nicaragua': Episode 12

by Jeff Probst

Okay, I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me that there is a bit of an implied contract when you agree to be on Survivor.

On our side, we promise you the adventure of your lifetime. Something you have never experienced before and will probably never experience again. It's a multi-million dollar, life-changing thrill ride that will test you on every level. We promise, and we always deliver. Always.

In exchange we expect only two things from you: Show up

Thanks, Pinkie.

(I was waiting for this!)

You guys should also check out the 4-page recap by Dalton Ross. Some funny and insightful comments there.

(The best was questioning why DAN didn't offer to give up reward in exchange for the tarp and rice, since he didn't even participate in the challenge!)

I didn't even realize this, Jedi! How very true about Dan.

I said that right away about Dan. He didn't do a thing. At least the quitter helped them win the challenge. I am not surprised at all that she didn't give up reward for the others. Key words there are 'for the others'. But Dan? Well, the tarp and rice would have benefitted him too, so I thought he should have been the one to forgo the reward. I don't even think he climbed up on the big chair by himself. They were just lucky there was an odd number of players, so that no one had to take him. He wouldn't have been able to go through the obstacle course all by himself, let alone helping to carry Gulliver.

Jeff Probst blogs 'Survivor: Nicaragua': Episode 13

by Jeff Probst

RUN SASH RUN!

Like a small town thief running from the local sheriff, this episode started with Sash on the run. Until last week, he had a great game going, but losing Brenda, Purple Kelly and Naonka put him in a deep, deep, deep hole.

I would have never believed that Sash would be able to get himself out of this mess and get back in the game, but he did. I continue to have to eat the words that I said to Sash at the beginning of the game, "Sash, you'll be the first person voted out."

Sash is not the most likable guy on the show and I'm not sure exactly why that is, but he is certainly one of the best strategists. More on that later

Sash is enough to make me not watch Survivor anymore. Jane is seriously thin and painful to watch. Fabio has no clue but I hope he wins simply because I find him more likeable than any of the others. It is ridonculous that Dan is even there; ever. Chase is good to look at if you like big, old empty vessels. Holly is. Benry isn't, anymore.

Jeff had to really work last night to get some animosity going between them. He looks weary of it all. Survivor Bedraggled.

I miss you, darling Brenda.

Jeff Probst blogs 'Survivor: Nicaragua': Episode 14

by Jeff Probst

IF IT'S A SPRINT PHONE, THAT MUST MEAN THE LOVED ONES ARE COMING!!

We've been through this season after season. I love the "loved ones" visit. I fight to have it in the show every season because it always pays off. Plus, Sprint loves it and Sprint is a major sponsor so if they like it, we really like it.

It's almost always emotional and on the rare occasions that it's uncomfortable due to an odd family dynamic, you always learn something new about the Survivors. This season was pure emotion. Let's review, shall we?

HOLLY

Frankly, Jeff my dear, I thought all the tears were a tad over the top. It's not as if they've been away in solitary confinement for a decade. As for Jane pouring water, I'd have been much more impressed had Jane turned it into pinot grigio or a good chianti right before the camera eye. It was just Jane being mean old Jane. Way too much of it all and way not enough of the stuff that makes me watch Survivor. Such profuse tears are best left to to the experts at it on TBL. Let's not do that anymore on Survivor. Mean and deceitful and no more tears.

Jeff Probst blogs the 'Survivor: Nicaragua' finale

by Jeff Probst

It's late so this will be short:

FABIO WINS

I'm delighted that Fabio won. He was the clear audience favorite. The crowd in the studio went wild when his name was announced. Kids seem to gravitate to Fabio. I think it's his goofy honesty. He doesn't filter much and though at times he is a bit scattered, there is an undeniable charm and it's nice to have him on the list of Survivor winners.

CHASE ON GEEE-TAR

I was really impressed. I'd never heard Chase play before but I just had a feeling it was worth a shot. He played once during our walk thru before the show and it sounded so good we asked the band to join in as well. I wish Chase well in his music endeavors. I could see him having a lot of success in Nashville.

NAONKA

I think she held back a little bit from her true self during the live show. She had a bit more self-control last night, but she still came through with some colorful answers. I was most curious what her mom would be like and I was pleasantly surprised that her mom was so even-keeled and honest about her daughter.

JIMMY JOHNSON

That's how you do an interview. His answers were great. That's why he makes a lot of money working on television. He's a pro. Loved what he said and that we were able to share the story of how Survivor helped save his life.

TERRY BRADSHAW

What a gift to have Bradshaw in the house and willing to let us ask him a few questions. Having Bradshaw gave us another element and a bit more insight into why someone like Jimmy Johnson would want to play Survivor.

JANE WINS SPRINT AWARD

As I said in the show, it was a BLOWOUT. She had 60 percent of the vote. The next closest were Holly and Fabio at about 10 percent. I'm happy for Jane. I think she will use that money to help make her life a bit easier. Two years worth of salary is a lot of money. What I like most about this award is that it's based on fan voting, nothing else.

BOSTON ROB

I owe Rob an apology. I tried to squeeze in too much content before getting to Rob and as a result we were late on time, and so the band started playing as a cue for us to go to break and Rob did his best to rush through the story. That was my fault and I accept full responsibility. But damn, that baby is cute. That is three Survivor babies that have come from Survivor couples. Rob and Amber have two and Jamie and Erik (from Survivor: China) have one as well!

REDEMPTION ISLAND

I do believe this is our biggest twist yet.

I do believe it will change the game in a huge way.

I do believe you are going to love it.

Give it a chance. Have some faith that we know what you guys want and expect from your favorite show.

If after 6 episodes the majority of you do not love what is happening with Redemption Island, you can let me know and I will vote myself off the show.

How's that for stakes?

I hope all of you have a great Holiday!!

See ya Feb. 16 for Survivor: Redemption Island.

Love you, Jeff, but I think that you wasted way too much time on Naonka and other inconsequential contestants/guests and not enough time on the good stuff.
