It has been a strange adventure.When BB12 came on I said to myself and others Hayden was going to win and he did.He was not my favorite player , Matt was.Survivor was revving up and I started checking to see who all the castaways were going to be and I said again to all my friends Judson was going to win.The difference this time was as the game started and progressed Judson John Birza grew on me.He became my favorite and I couldn't stop blogging about him.Judson won Survivor tonight and you could say I knew it all along.I would never have spent so much time talking about him and rooting for him to expect any other out come.I usually am bad at picking the winners , but not this year.Tears rolled down my cheek , when he got choked up at his final tribal council talking about family and how his love of family and his mom helped motivate him to push ahead to the final , when he was really down and out at that point.He was going home unless he stepped it up.Then I teared up again when they announced he was indeed the sole survivor.I was so happy for him.I felt he really deserved it.He is such a positive force and we need more of that in the world.I hope I didn't irritate him to much by blogging about him so much.I apologize to him if I did.Congratulations Judson!
Somewhere out in the LA area of California , one of the Survivors , from this season , is most likely sitting in his room , nervously awaiting tonight's last show and live reunion.Judson John Birza is probably shirtless and barefooted wishing he could play the drums or take a walk on the beach.I wanted to wish him good luck tonight as with all the remaining castaways and thank all the castaway rejects , those that have left their torches being snuffed out at one of the previous Tribal Councils.I have enjoyed watching this season and while I have paid most attention to Jud the Stud , I really have fond feelings for all 20 of the castaways.I know Judson must win another Immunity Challenge and get the necklace , if he is to move forward and make it to the final four.I believe he will.If he doesn't he will be voted out no doubt.Three Tribal Councils tonight and Judson must own them.If he does that , I believe he has a great shot at the million.The shows edit throughout the season would suggest he also has a good shot.Supposedly if you watch enough survivor you can get clues from the edit as to who the winner is.I'm not that good at that sort of analyzing , but I would say Judson's edit was positive and favorable and he has won challenges and has saved the best for last.He very well could be our next Sole Survivor and winner of Survivor Nicaragua.
Yes it is getting close to crunch time and you can now vote, for your favorite player of the season.Wonder who I voted for ... lol.The post link takes you to CBS.COM to vote.You can vote up to 10 times and you can also text another 10 votes a total of 20 votes per person.
Judson Birza did indeed win the immunity necklace that Jeff Probst is showing off.Jane Bright was voted off since Judson was immune from the vote last night.Jane threw a little tantrum , before leaving , by putting out the camps fire.I hope the 5 remaining castaways were able to get another fire started , but if not they only had 3 or 4 days left to play.Be sure to watch the finale Sunday night.
Well , you only have, to put up ,with me touting Judson John Birza one more week.Next Sunday is finale night.We will have a show Wednesday night ,where I presume Jane goes home , but it could be Holly.I'm going to guess Judson gets the Immunity necklace and even though they want to dispose of him they can't.A couple of months back when this season of survivor first started I told you all that I wouldn't decide who I would give the million to until it got down to the final four.I have read many blogs and many posts on forums that tell who should win, but with the game still being played and it approaching crunch time , how could one possibly know what lies ahead.I think if you really love the game and are a true fan you would have to wait and judge the whole season before deciding.I know that Judson's best week is right in front of us.Will that be enough to sway my vote in his favor...possibly.In the top photo Judson obviously had the desire , to show his chest off and in the bottom photo a older Judson not only was willing to take his top off , but his pants as well.
I knew I didn't need to be , but I was really scared for Judson this past Wednesday.Ben Henry ended up being the one to go to the Ponderosa.For those of you that don't know Ponderosa is the place the castaways go to stay while performing jury duties.They have been voted out by the tribe , but still need a place to hang till the show ends and they fly back to the states.The show and it's editors did a good job in making you think Judson was in trouble.That's not to say he isn't now in even bigger trouble , but I have faith Judson will own the next 2 episodes of Survivor.He has no choice now.He will be sent , to the Ponderosa , to join his buddy Benry if he doesn't win the next couple of Immunity Challenges.Now maybe it's because I have spent so much time watching Judson's gameplay , or lack of , since we all know his number 1 strategy is to "Play It Cool" , but I think he tossed the challenge this past week again.I said it before on the holding onto the rope over the pool challenge how he wasn't struggling and just did a quick turn and dove into the water rather than the rest who who just couldn't hold on and fell back.Anyways it really looked like this week he was close to figuring that puzzle out and kept looking over at Sash and waited for him to win.That would mean of course he must of felt pretty secure he wasn't going home , but then again , it could just be the editing make it appear that way , or maybe its just my attempt to make Judson out to have any sort of strategy possible.I like the Playing It Cool but also want to think their is something else.Throwing a couple of challenges to come off as less of a threat might also be at work here.So I think Judson can win the next Immunity Challenge and the one after.
I haven't blogged as much this week about Survivor's Judson Birza as in weeks past.I haven't even really spoke about the 2 quitter's and their impact on the game and Jud.All I really said was that Judson was going to have to win some immunity challenges since Chase and Sash have Immunity Idols that both were given.Chase got his last week from one of the quitters Na Onka.That has a direct impact on Jud as Chase now is sitting pretty to reach final 4.Sash is also pretty much assured a spot in the final 4 so that only leaves 2 available spots for Judson to claim one.I kinda didn't want to mention Judson and Survivor today but it is Survivor Wednesday and the show airs tonight.I am a little sad that the show is close to coming to an end.Tonight's show and then the following Wednesday on the 15th with a finale 11 days from now on the 19th.
Looking Forward To Some Judomination in the Challenges which is bound to happen if he is to make it to the end.Sash and Chase both have hidden immunity idols so Judson is going to have to work doubly hard.
I went to the reading of the names yesterday evening.I wanted to see the quilt but as it was getting dark they had already packed it up.They were still reading the names and were on the s in the alphabet when I arrived.
I might as well turn this blog into a survivor / judson tribute.The truth is I have been so busy with eBay for the holiday sales that I just haven't allowed myself any picture taking time or story telling.I have allowed myself to keep up with Survivor and the story of Judson John Birza.I saw him before the season started and knew instantly I would be rooting for him.Last week the day before Thanksgiving was the recap show which I still have only watched half of.I have heard Judson was the star of the Recap.I'm not surprised.Tonight is a new eppy and I couldn't be happier.It has been a long two weeks.I believe Judson will be safe again this week as the rumors indicate from eppy promos that two castaways quit.I am pretty sure they are both females.Before quitting one of them gives Chase a gift that will almost guarantee Chase's spot in the final four.It should be a interesting episode and most interesting Tribal Council.I'm just not sure how I feel about two quitters being on the jury.
