(WESLEY)-(KEVIN)-(FEDE)-(FRANCISCO)-(CHRIS)-(KRISTINE)-(CARL)-(EAMON)-(SHYAM)-(LEIF)-(BRIAN)-(LISTER)-(MARCELO)-(JAMIE)-(MICHAEL)-(DAVE)

We’ll now bring in our jur–oh wait, they’re already here. My bad.

Anyways, welcome to Final Tribal Council. You did what sixteen other people couldn’t do in this game. Don’t you feel special? The power now shifts to nine people you had a hand either directly or indirectly voting out of this game. They are here to make zero dollar decision and figure out who wins the title of Supa Coo Wacky Survivor.

Before the jury lights it up in this bizz, David and Noah, you two will have an opportunity to address the jury. You will respond in this topic and have your first chance (publicly) to plead your case and convince these people that you deserve to win. Then the jury will create their own topics and pummel you with questions.

Doesn’t matter who goes first. You can alternate in iambic parameter if you want to really be creative.

David Racine Ok so I wrote my speech to the jury and I’ve realized it’s ridiculously long, so long in fact that I’ve created a table of contents for it 😀

A) My background and how it helped me adapt.
B) Bare basics of my strategy- Being the player with all the information.
C) Pre-merge strategy- Being the “suggester” as opposed to leader.
D) Merge strategy- Creating bonds and strengthening trust. Marcelo, and how he helped me create stability for my alliance.
E) Talks with Leif make me realize I need to be more aggressive with my strategy in order to win.
F) The Shyam vote and why I initiated it.
G) Final 6 to the home stretch- How my strategy intensified and how I made it to the end with the player of my choice.
H) Noah- The basics on why I think I should win against him.

David Racine Hey guys,
-I want to start off by saying how lucky I feel to be a part of this game, not only sitting here in the finals but also just getting to know each player i’ve had the chance to get to know over the past few months. It’s been a great experience and as some of you know this has been my first Org ever. With no previous experience in Orgs I think I not only did a good job getting to the end with one of my first allies, but I also excelled in being a good well-rounded player with a very well thought out game-plan and execution. Let me tell you a bit about myself: While I didn’t even know that orgs existed till this past January, my life has revolved around strategy for quite a few years. Five years ago I began working as a telemarketer focusing on sales. I picked up the various techniques to selling immediately and learned very quickly that the key to sales is selling yourself and not necessarily the product. I became one of the top salesmen at my work fairly quickly, and eventually moved up to becoming the company’s trainer where my job consisted solely of teaching new hires how to sell sell sell. Therefore, concepts such as “building trust”, “relating to the customer”, and “closing the deal” that i’ve spent the last few years of my life teaching everyday came in handy from the first moment this game began. I was able to be subtle yet effective to getting my point across, likeable yet persistent, and most important of all; capable of building trusting relationships.

– I truly feel that from the moment the tribes were formed all the way up until the closing moments of this game that I was VERY well informed when it came to the daily happenings of the game; I knew how to get the information I needed and this helped me out all through the game whether it be knowing who was voting for who or in situations at the merge where my alliance was able to get rid of 2 idols in 1 shot. I don’t deny that there was some luck involved in the game due to Ooc only attending tribal once and the mysterious happenings over at the Apus camp, however, I believe that my survival post-merge had nothing to do with luck but relied solely on my skills and hard work. Through answering the questions that will come my way, I think that the jury (specifically the Apus members who don’t know me very well) will see that I was more instrumental to my alliance’s success in the post-merge than may have been evident at first sight, while still maintaining a fairly low profile and never being cocky.

-Going back to the beginning, my initial strategy was to not be the outright “leader” but to still use my leadership abilities to help in challenges, and also in the internal affairs of my alliance. I assumed the role not of leader, but “suggester”; a way of getting my ideas across to my alliance with a “What do you guys think if we ___” without the rest of the tribe or Apus knowing. The first evidence of this is our only vote pre-merge: Francisco. With a first tribal looming and most people having an “anyone but me” mindset, I was able to get Francisco voted out simply by suggesting that he should be the first to go. My strategy about not being seen as a leader while still having an influence seemed to be working, and when we received information from “the other side” that Dave Bronson was being seen as a Boston Rob-type character, I was thrilled. There’s really not a whole lot to say about my pre-merge game from a strategic standpoint since we only visited tribal once, other than that I continued to build strong bonds with my alliance, as well as with newcomer Shyam (who will have a whole paragraph dedicated to him further down).

-Come merge time, my ability to interact with players whom not many people were trusting and/or strategizing with, and get them to trust me and make moves together played a huge role in my progress. I felt like this applies a bit to the relationship I have with Noah, but I mainly am talking about Marcelo. I think he’s a hugely underrated player in some aspects, and is a good part of the reason Ooc was able to take over. As I said before, I feel like I always had a lot of information handed to me, and I had come to the conclusion that both Brian and Eamon had idols whereas most of Ooc believed it was Brian and Shyam. By gaining Marcelo’s trust I was able to convince him to relay to Apus that we were voting Brian, while in reality we voted Eamon and dumped 2 idols.

-While my subtle strategy was working so far, I realized I must do something to display strategy and not keep it hidden if i hoped to win, and I decided to do so after a conversation I had with Leif. I had a conversation with him where I was basically told that I needed to make a big move since Apus seemed to view me as fairly insignificant and not even in the Top 3 of Ooc members pulling the strings. This surprised me, but being adaptable I shifted gears and became more aggressive in my strategy after speaking with Leif.

David Racine ‎-I think my biggest move this whole game was by far getting Shyam out. I know this might qualify as somewhat of a “villain” move, since i believe that I had built a solid relationship and trust with Shyam, but in the end, the reasons for the betrayal benefited my game. I approached Noah and asked what he thought; he was for it, so i approached every member of my alliance and asked if they would be on board. One thing to note is that most people on Ooc believed Shyam had an idol, and while I was fairly confident Eamon had it, I didn’t tell anyone what i thought since it worked in my interest that they thought Shyam had it. My reasons for booting Shyam at 10 were: A) He was in a good spot with EVERYONE on the tribe; he had all the options in the world. It became evident that the Apus tribe would be willing to work with him again, and so if he had a choice of working with everyone left in the game he was a huge threat. B) It got to the point where people were starting to do what Shyam wanted. He suggested booting Eamon and Ooc said “Sure, it doesn’t matter”, He suggested booting Marcelo next to which Ooc replied “Sure, it doesn’t matter”. What I saw happening was that the people he wanted to go where leaving, which also meant that the people from Apus he wanted to stay were STAYING. This meant that Shyam was slowly gaining power, and I saw in that moment that the game was tipping slowly in Shyam’s favor and I had to do something about it. C) I also was looking to keep the margins close between the tribe. In my mind, the best way to keep my 5 to the end was to keep our numbers as close to Apus as possible. So for example, after Shyam left we were at a 5-4 advantage and no one in their right mind would consider flipping to Brian and co.’s side. So in some ways I viewed getting Shyam out a way to secure the loyalties of the other players in my alliance by keeping the numbers close.

-In the final stretch of this game I relied more and more upon my adaptability skills to get what I wanted. Although Dave was at one time my closest alliance, I think that we both realized early on that it wouldn’t be smart to bring the other to the end, and so I view everything from the F7 and on as a big chess game between Dave and I; both silently looking for an advantage over the other. To be completely honest with the jury, my original plan at F6 was to get Michael out instead of Marcelo, then to go to the end with Marcelo and Noah. It soon became apparent that Jamie and Dave were closer than I had thought and that my original plan to take Mike out wouldn’t work, so I had to adapt and go with Marcelo. The reason i’m bringing this up is to set up what happened next as one of my big moves to the jury and to show that I was indeed willing to take big risks in this game. At F5 with Marcelo gone I needed a new strategy or else risked seeing Jamie and Dave in the finals, so I took a big risk with Mike. I told him straight up what my original plan was to take him out but that the biggest threat to both of us at that point was Dave and Jamie, and I effectively was able to take control of the game down the home stretch as Michael saw that my points were valid and we voted Jamie out. I see this move as the move that almost cemented my fate in the game, and tilted the game in my favor while showcasing my strategic abilities.

-As for my opponent in the finals, I couldn’t have done it without him. Noah was loyal, dependable and overall an excellent player who never ceases to surprise me. Why should you vote for me over him? For one, I feel like although Noah and I played a similar game, I think i excelled more in the subtleties of the game. Noah had a strategic mindset like I did, but when it came to things like building trust with others, getting people to vote my way, and in general just being a good politician; I think I performed more effectively while Noah did have a tendency to come off as unpredictable and hard to read for some. One example is the mutiny. This twist was announced mere hours after Francisco was voted out which was HORRIBLE HORRIBLE timing for the Ooc tribe as those not “in” with the vote had the opportunity to mutiny while they were still fuming. While players like myself, Dave, and Michael were busy reassuring and calming down Kristine and Carl, Noah was arguing with them and calling Kristine names on the main page of the game (not even privately in our tribe). I’m not going to bash Noah’s game too much, but I feel like this was just one instance where the politicking and reassurance I was trying to give to every player in the game was somewhat undone by Noah’s impulsive actions. So in essence I feel like I was calm, cool, and collected while Noah was a bit more impulsive and unpredictable.

-That’s pretty much the game from my point of view, and I hope that clarified things about my game for everyone and that it wasn’t too long-winded (lol it is pretty long). Once again, I think I played a pretty good game from start to finish, and this being my first Org I feel like I adapted quite well. I’m ready to face you guys and really hope I can clear up any questions you may have about my gameplay, decisions, or anything else.

Noah SpiderJew Well hello everyone. I want to thank you all for a great game. It was a lot of fun. Well let’s get down to business. I’m shocked I’m in the finals. Honestly I had a target on me when my tribe lost there first immunity challenge. I was picked as weak and useless. I was really offended by that because that is nothing of what I am. When Francisco was voted out I was happy. It showed light for me that I accually had people on my side. From that moment on I think I went into survival mode. I had to secure an allience, which I did. The OOC 5, and Shyam, after the mutiny. Come merge the 6 of us knew we had to stick together and we did until the Shyam vote. David had mentioned voting him off a few time before then but I wasn’t down, but the allience was scared that he had people protecting him since someone clearly wanted the idol and took a penelty for there tribe 3 times, it was coming to a time that Shyam could flip and take us all out. After that vote I think it was very clear I had no control and/or say so. I basically went with the flow trying to avoid getting any votes in my direction. Which I was good at because when I heard a vote was coming my way, I tried to convince them that I was no threat, and someone else should go.i think brian was a hard vote for me. He was such a great guy along with lister, but they had to go purely on the fact that they were original apus members. Had they been with us from day one i can almost garentee that one of them woul be here today. When it got to 6, David wanted Mike out. I couldn’t let that happen so I convinced Jamie and Dave to change there vote to Marcelo, thus keeping mike and keeping the original 5 together. Once it came down to 5 I was good with whoever went as long as it was not me. I knew all along that the original plan was for Jamie and I to be out at 5 and 4. When David came to me and told me the vote was for Jamie was kind of on the fence because David had made a final 3 deal with her and I, that is why I was shocked when he wanted her out but sticking to the same stragety I had of as long as its not me, I was good with it. When mike was voted out, I was torn. I had so many pros and cons for keepin both, but loyalty is a big thing to me and I never took the easy way out, I got rid of someone who I could have a better shot of beating for someone I was loyal to since day 1. That same vote a lot came to the surface, David wanting to get me out, also mike did as well. Mike, Dave an David promising me final 2. I couldn’t resist the offer but I know in this game words mean nothing, actions speak louder then words. Ultimately I had to do what felt right in my heart and that wa to keep David. Even if I don’t win I was loyal, also mike was voting for me an I got him to change his vote from me to David. Now the final challenge, I was determined to win. I wanted to win so bad but when Dave was knocked out , I had to admit I was shocked and slightly happy. I knew he was a favorite to win. Then I had a sneeze and hit the damn button. I was so mad but slightly relieved I didn’t have to make the hard decision of picking one of the guys I had been with since day 1. Now I’m here. In the final 2. I must say I am very happy to be here. I played a decent game and I avoided every vote since week 4, and the whole merge. I was nEver a threat, I never tried to stand out and be a target. I feel like I’m the kind of person you know what you are getting with me. I’m very open and I feel that myself, unlike David, are open and not trying to understand what makes him tick or what would push him over the edge.

It’s been said you were the one who tried to orchestrate voting me out at 6, why was that? Was I a threat to your game? And why did you vote me out over Noah at 4 when you told me early on that you cared more about loyalty and playing a clean game then playing dirty?

Noah

Just saying “after I was targeted, I just went with the flow and wound up here” is a terrible way to get me to give you my vote, why should I vote for you over David? Are you admitting you didn’t do much and David deserves this?
April 13 at 9:59am via mobile · Like
Noah SpiderJew Thanks for the question mike. After Francisco was voted out and then the mutiny happened we all were in shock and stunned. I went with the flow as in I didn’t want to stand out to much to put another target on myself. Yes David won more challenges, but that is why he was targeted by the remaining Apus members and myself staying clear of the votes. I think you should vote for me over David due to the fact I did save you by convincing Dave and Jamie to keep you when David was leading a charge to vote you out. Also I never broke a deal I PERSONALLY made. People made deals that included me but the 1 deal I made was OOC to 5. Also I never got a vote the entire jury/merge stage. Not 1. I think that speaks volumes. I feel like I was loyal to my allience, I could have been a dick and kept my idol for a jury vote but I got rid of it, my safety net, to trust you guys. Not trying to lead a charge to vote you out.

I did plenty in the game, if I was not comfortable with something or I didn’t like it then I tried to turn the vote another way. When the merge came some of the Apus members wanted me to flip to them and take out OOC. I didn’t. I could have easily played both sides but I was loyal to the deal I made day 1. I hear David had deals with a few people, all broken. Loyalty is number 1 to me. I also was very good at my social game, I tried talking to everyone but a number of times people would come to me and say how they were talking to people who would never answer me back. I tried with everyone. I messages you and we talked for hours about how I had family by you and I wanted to know you on a personal level, same thing with Jamie, David, Dave, I even tried with Leif, eamon, Brian and lister. I think he said he lives in a basement. I feel like I had more personal connections with people then David who had more game connections. I feel like you need to know someone personally before you can trust them. I gave 120% in every challenge. Regardless if I was at work, driving cross country, in the hospital I gave my all. I would love your vote but I understand if not. 🙂

Shyam Sundar
Alright…I did not follow the game post my boot, as much as I tried to, but grad school is not a walk in the park. I am going to make this short. Noah SpiderJew and I had alliance from day one and I also shared a good rapport with David Racine. When I was blindsided of course I was mad but then again it is just a game. And what David did was a smart move, taking me out when the opportunity provided itself. I decided before that my vote will go to Noah but now after learning Noah agreed to vote me out is a slap on my face.

Noah, I asked you, point blank, if you had anything to do at all with my vote and you kept saying you had nothing to do with it. Now I know that I had been right about you all this while.

I am not going to ask questions or expect any reply to this comment. My vote is for David. Good luck David, hope you win.

Jamie Frick
Jamie’s Jury Questions

Congrats to both of you for making it to the finals! Anyone who makes it this far definitely deserves to win.. But only the best can actually win.

David Racine:

Your computer basically crapped out towards the end of the game, so it was hard to get in touch with you. During the whole Michael vs. Marcelo vote, you wanted Michael gone before Marcelo. You told me you already sent in your vote, so I couldn’t really do anything to change that. I didn’t want to go against the original 5 person alliance, so I wasn’t comfortable voting out Michael. Obviously after that vote, things fell through with us or something. Was me voting out Marcelo instead of Michael a factor in why you decided that you wanted me out? If not, why did you want me out over someone else?

Sorry that I don’t have more questions. I already get the kind of game that you played and I think you are being really cocky in your opening statement and that doesn’t bode well with me. It just makes is sound like you “suggested” every single thing that happened in this game and it definitely wasn’t that way.

Noah SpiderJew:

You and I had an alliance from the very beginning. You were all about the veterans of the games winning and not letting a newbie win. I definitely thought we would have an alliance that would last throughout the entire game. You said “but loyalty is a big thing to me and I never took the easy way out”.. Apparently it wasn’t a big thing when it came to me. I’m usually not bitter about people breaking alliances and whatnot, but the way you went about things was not cool. After I was voted out I was really confused. I didn’t know if I should believe you or Dave during the aftermath. I was getting two completely different stories. Dave sent me the convos he had with you and when I asked you to send them to me, you didn’t even reply. I know that you don’t have to send them to me, but just how everything went down was very sneaky. So I want to know the truth. How did everything truthfully go down the round I was voted out? Feel free to post the actual convo.

You also said in a message to me about voting me out “I feel bad bc I wanted you in the end with me”.. So why vote for me? We had the number to actually go to the end. Why not make it happen if that’s what you really wanted? It just doesn’t make much sense to me.

One more thing that you said.. “When it got to 6, David wanted Mike out. I couldn’t let that happen so I convinced Jamie and Dave to change there vote to Marcelo, thus keeping mike and keeping the original 5 together.” Uhm, no. You never convinced me to change my vote to Marcelo. I was all about going to the end with the 5 person alliance and I never planned on going against that. I never wanted to keep Marcelo over Michael. How do you think you convinced me to “change my vote” when I was never planning on voting for Michael?

I knew many people thought you were shady and couldn’t be trusted. I decided to trust you anyway and I tried to believe everything you were telling me. I know it’s a game and people get lied to and alliances aren’t always what they seem. But I can definitely see where people get where you were being shady and untrustworthy. I can for sure see it in the way you are addressing the jury. There are just so many false things that you are saying and it is making you look bad and it’s slimming down the chances you have of winning.

I also have more questions for the both of you because I love to hear things about myself : )
– What do you think my strongest move was? Weakest?
– What do you like the most about me? Least?
– Which Britney Spears song fits me best?

Okay, that’s all for now!

Noah SpiderJew
You are right Jamie, I did like you and did want you in the end with me. When you were voted out I did give you some bs story bc I felt bad for votin you out. I guess you can say I was persuaded a little when it came to that vote. Had you stayed and mike went I was told that you and Dave have become really close and neither of you would take me. I really wanted to keep you I did but after hearing that then I was not sure how to feel. Do I feel bad, yes, but in the same sense, could I beat you? No. When I was talking to you about the Marcelo vs Mike vote, you seemed very undecided. At least to me. I know you were all about keeping is 5 together and I was also. With david pushing so hard for Marcelo to stay I figured it would not be hurtful if I had asked a few people about it. I wanted mike to stay. When we finished talking it appeared to me that you wanted to keep mike, now if that was convincing then it was if not then I’m sorry for using the word wrong. I never took the easy way out. Knowin that David and mike got close an you and Dave got close I was in the middle and I knew I was going no were if I didn’t split up the 2 pairs. Now this is my opinion and mine alone. I am trustworthy and not shady but when it got down to 5 I had to look out for me. I had to do what was best for me to get to the end. I have addressed the jury with full honesty and I ment what I have said. We all agreed that it was every man for themselves at 5. I never lied to you this whole game until u were voted out. My strongest move was picking a 5 person allience that could help me, not carry me to the end and dodging every vote. My weakest was when I voted out you, honestly. I knew after I did it that I messed up but I had to look out for me. I love your sense of humor. You are funny and have this trustworthy feel about you but, you are strong and vicious. You can be sneaky and much of a puppet master if you get what I’m trying to say. I think the Britney spears song that fits you, after my questions, I would say stronger. You are a strong girl.

David Racine Ok, but what i’m saying is that the second Dave won immunity at F5 you messaged me “So now we vote Jamie”, and you’re making it seem like you had some big ultimatum to make and you felt pressured to vote for her, and that’s not what went down.
April 13 at 2:19pm · Like
Noah SpiderJew That is what went down. After Dave won immunity I thought the vote was mike. Because it was going to be you/Jamie/and myself in the F3. But apparently that was not the case, you are makin it out as if I’m lying. When I have no reason. You are trying to blame me and make me look like I’m some huge liar so you can get their votes. That’s how I feel. I’m being 100% honest.

It also seems like you had a lot of final two deals. Tell me everyone that you were aligned with and how that helped you. Also, who was your one true ally that you actually wanted to go to the end with?

In the perfect world I would have loved to see you and Shyam in a final 3 with me. I have history with you both. I’ve played your games, we have played together a few times and you never screwed me over. Same with Shyam, I liked him and we played a lot together but he screwed me and played both sides, stabbing me in the face and me getting voted out at 8. I was mad for a while but I forgave him, but I forgive but don’t forget. We tried to patch it up in this game. You both are fierce and tough. It would have been bar to choose between you and him had you both been in the end.

Hey guys, so I might have messed up and posted my questions in the other thread, so I’ll ask new questions here for Noah, since he answered his, and the old questions for David, since unless I missed it he never answered

David

You told me you and Dbron had an alliance with Jamie, when was I put out of the 3? What was the motivation for voting me out? Did you orchestrate the final 4 vote to boot me? What other lies did you tell this game?

Noah

What was the reasoning to belittling Carl and Kristine after the Cisco vote? Like Racine said: me, him, and bronson were scrambling to keep them, and you basically undid all that. To be honest thats the main reason I dont feel like I should vote for you, cause you seriously hurt our team, and werent a very kind human in the whole situation. Explain why you did that, and how it helped your game

Both

I’m just gonna copy Jamie, cause she’s awesome

Whats my favorite Tim McGraw song?
What Steven Spielberg movie best describes me?
How old did you think I was 1 week into the game, and dont look at my profile if you dont know, how old do you think I am now?

Thanks guys 🙂

Noah SpiderJew Well mike, the answer is simple. After the Cisco vote, the only person of the 3 who told me they were voting for me was Kristine which I respect. But when it is 3 against 1, I did what I had to do to get them out. I never trusted either of them. I don’t think that fight caused them to mutiny. I think they had bonds on the other tribe that they thought would carry them further. I said what I said due to the fact I was attacked. And when most people get attacked they fight back regardless if it is right or wrong. Now yes I did ask eamon to vote them both out. I knew had they stayed they would have been gunning for me, and I didnt want to leave this game. What I said was wrong but at the time I didn’t think so. Had they have stayed there could have been a chance that I could have been out earlier an one of them take my spot in the allience. If that makes me a bad person then so be it, but I will say sorry for talking about her kids. That was wrong. It helped my game to know that if both of them left then I would have less of a target on my back. I think that fight helped a few people. Clearly seeing a fight like that made everyone else in the clear. Knowing that we would target each other before others.

David Racine ‎1) I don’t know if I ever straight up said that me, Dave, and Jamie had an official alliance, but what I was referring to was that Dave and I had decided we were more comfortable taking Jamie to the F3 than you. It wasn’t something that was talked about repeatedly between us, but we had at least 2 conversations about it around the time Brian or Lister was voted out I believe… What actually sparked that debate was a conversation you and I had. We were just running scenarios through each other one night and you said something along the lines of “just hypothetically, it makes no sense for me to jump to Brian, right?” I’m sure you meant nothing by it and the comment was forgotten but in my head it was like “Whoah, gotta make up a plan B in case I hear too many of these comments”. So Dave and I talked and we did decide that come Final 5 or 6 if we did continue getting these vibes that we would feel more comfortable with Jamie. Whether that actually would have happened down the road, who knows? Things changed every day down the home stretch due to paranoia, and by the time we finally got to final 5 I saw that it would make more sense to side with you than Jamie or Dave.

2) The motivation for voting you out… I’m not sure if you’re talking about when I wanted to get you out at F6 or when you actually did get voted out, but i’ll go with F6 since i’ll pretty much answer the F4 next question. Like I told you, at F6 I wrote your name down before I changed it to Marcelo at the last minute. My motivation for this was to 1) gain leverage in the game since I was pretty sure I would have Marcelo’s vote next round and him, I, and Noah could take over. 2) I really didn’t think at the time that you would be willing to vote Dave at F5 and would just insist on Noah, to which i fully imagine he might be gone, and my chance to get to the end would diminish, but Dave’s chances would highly increase. So in short, at F6 my motivation to get you out was to tilt the odds in my favor by having a vote in Marcelo, however once I found out you WOULD be willing to vote Dave at F5, I sincerely wanted you to be in the final 3 with us.

C) Did I orchestrate the F4 boot? The answer is no, till I realized that if Noah and I tied then I would go home due to past votes, then yes. I have NEVER seen so much paranoia from all 3 of us who didn’t have immunity that round. We were all losing our minds scrambling. I didn’t lie to you, I did briefly consider wanting Noah out to have you in a F3 challenge and increase our odds of having Dave not win final immunity, but then I came up with this reasoning: Noah finds out, goes to Dave who at this point wants me out, they both vote me while you and I vote Noah. I have more past votes so i go home. So no, I didn’t orchestrate the boot, but it was just the math that my chance of survival would be slim if I sided you out, so I stuck with Noah.

4) Other lies I told you: I think I’ve been fairly straightforward but one lie I told you intentionally was in voting out Shyam. I had deduced that Eamon got voted out with an idol just by a variety of signs (Logan kept going on about TWO BLINDSIDES at that tribal, so it made me think Eamon had it, and a few other signs too), but I kept telling people that I thought Shyam had an idol to reinforce their fears or worries about him. Maybe not an outright lie since I wasn’t SURE he didn’t have an idol, but as far as I recall that’s the only thing I intentionally misinformed you about.

As for your other questions, I thought you were 16 when I first met you and now I would have to say……..18 or 19? I didn’t look at your profile. Steven Spielberg movie? I’ll say Minority Report because that’s probably my favorite one.

David Racine First off, I want to thank you for asking so many questions because it really gives a chance for me (and Noah) to explain just exactly what our thought process was throughout the game.

1-What do you think about my game? I think it was brilliant. It was risky to appear almost disinterested at times in the game, but you totally owned it and were the only player out of the 4 mutineers who made it far into the game. I know that your game went far beyond just not answering tribal questions though; from what I know you approached Dave Bronson for a finals alliance but when you felt that he wouldn’t take you as far as you wanted, you sought out a new F2 alliance with someone you thought would take you further. You were versatile and adaptable in addition to not appearing threatening.

2-Why didn’t you told me that you changed your vote(me vs Mike)? I was trying to get people to vote Mike instead of you, but it became clear that Dave and Jamie weren’t going to change their mind before final 5. I actually DID send in a vote to Logan that said Mike’s name on it, but things were rushed for me at that time since my computer was broken, and I only changed my vote 2-3 hours before the votes were due. I really didn’t have time at the library before work, and it felt fake to send you just 3 or 4 sentences saying “sorry i can’t save you”. I did feel badly, but I did make it a point to tell you i had no choice right after you got voted out, when i bought a new computer…

3-What was your best move? I think my best move was trying to get Shyam voted out, and taking the risk that people wouldn’t want to do that before the other Apus were gone. I also think that talking to people and attempting to get rid of Brian’s idol without him knowing he was safe was a great move, but that was not strictly a solo move and involved several people.

4-Why should I vote for you? I feel like I deserve your vote because I played a good well-rounded game. I contributed to challenges for my team, I had decent strategy, and was able to create good relationships and build trust fairly easily. I was also willing to talk strategy with people whom not many other players were taking the opportunity to do so, and I think that gave me a little bit of a strategic advantage in the game. I also think i deserve your vote because I put in a LOT of time thinking about this game. I was off work due to injury for the 1st 5 weeks of this game and bored as hell, so this game was basically what kept me busy and I cared about the outcome of this game very much.

5-When the final 5 alliance was formed? Our Final 5 started talking i’d say during the first or second week of the game, and really solidified after the Francisco vote since we knew then that we could all be trusted for sure.

6-What do you think about my decision of mutiny to APUS?
I think there were pros and cons to it. I think you took the risk that you wouldn’t be targeted immediately before the others and it paid off for you as opposed to Kristine and Carl, and it gave you the opportunity to talk with everyone in the game before the merge. On the other hand, come merge time most of the Ooc tribe didn’t trust you as much as they would have if you hadn’t mutinied, but when you mutinied there was no way for you to know that ooc would win every immunity challenge from then till the merge…

7-Did you really wanted to go the final 2 with me? I did want that starting at about the time we had conversations about you telling Apus we were voting Brian, but at the same time I knew that I would only be willing to do that if there was a 100% chance I could get away with it. If at F6 players like Jamie and Dave had agreed to vote Mike out, yes, I would have tried to take you as far as possible, but as soon as that looked impossible I stuck with my original plan with Ooc.

8-Who was the leader of the OCC’s alliance? I really don’t think we had an outright leader, and that’s what made us work. Since we only had to go to tribal once pre-merge, the decisions on who should go after the merge were fairly clear cut about who should leave. So there wasn’t one particular person who called the shots, but some people had more influence than others on specific votes; it really changed depending on the tribal.

9-Who do you think played the best game(you can’t choose yourself)? The best all-around game, by far Dave Bronson. He absolutely crushed the challenges come merge time and also was a huge reason we won challenges during the first half of the game. I wouldn’t call him the outright “leader” of the tribe, but I do see him as the glue that held the group together and could easily be trusted. If he made the finals in this game he probably would win at least 6-3 or 7-2 against any player in the Ooc alliance.

10-What was my best quality in the game? I think your best quality was adaptability. When something wasn’t working you moved on to something new. In the end, this did cause some players to distrust you, but it was definitely a ballsy strategy that never made the game dull. I think your all-or-nothing game was a great quality especially combined with a somewhat quieter and complicated under-the-radar strategy. I’ve compared your strategy to that of Suzie Smith of Survivor Gabon, where she did similar moves that you did, and ended up almost winning in the final vote.

Noah SpiderJew Thank you Marcelo for the questions. I thought your game was ok. Honestly I think you did well for being a target so much and staying. Would I play a game like that? No but it seemed to have got you to final 6 so it worked for you. My best move was probably a very confusing move. Getting rid of my idol. I think it showed that I trusted my allience and the people I was with. It took a target off me because a few people have tol me that they wanted me out due to my idol. Had you stayed with OOC then I think you could have lasted longer, I honestly think so. When you switched tribes to Apus, I must say I was confused. I know when you got voted out the reason I did was I felt like you left us hanging. Now how others felt then I’m not sure buy that was me. We got along and you wanted to keep me and vote out Francisco. So it was a confusing move. Also one move that most people would overlook was the fact i got no votes so as david said him trying to tie a vote with me and someone else, would have kept me and not them.
When we were in OOC, we talked a lot but after you flipped I felt I couldn’t trust you. When you came back to us in the merge you wanted back in the OOC allience. I felt like it was trying to make us take you back after you left us. Had you stayed then it may have been different. I never really talked to you bc you lied to me a lot and I knew I could not trust you. I voted for mike because he was part of the 5, and he never left us hanging, like you.
I think you should vote for me based on the fact that I never got votes, I was able to get an idol, I was pretty honest with everyone. I never made a deal with you and broke it. I think I was never a threat to anyone. I got rid of an idol to gain trust. If you can respect my game play, then vote for me. Everyone had to play their own game and I played the way I felt was best for me. I think I also have come I learn I was never surposed to get past 5 or even 6. I made it past all that and the fact that I had a huge fight with 3 members of my tribe and I made it past.
Honestly Dave played the best game as in challenges. I’m not sure who played the best social game.
After eamon was voted out, I’m not sure why you were taegetted next other then the fact you, in our minds, we’re Apus now. And Apus was the enemy. But the best thing about your game was the fact you were liked. You were liked and you never fought with anyone. That helped you a lot and the fact you made deals with the right people.

David Racine First off, I want to thank you for asking so many questions because it really gives a chance for me (and Noah) to explain just exactly what our thought process was throughout the game.

1-What do you think about my game? I think it was brilliant. It was risky to appear almost disinterested at times in the game, but you totally owned it and were the only player out of the 4 mutineers who made it far into the game. I know that your game went far beyond just not answering tribal questions though; from what I know you approached Dave Bronson for a finals alliance but when you felt that he wouldn’t take you as far as you wanted, you sought out a new F2 alliance with someone you thought would take you further. You were versatile and adaptable in addition to not appearing threatening.

2-Why didn’t you told me that you changed your vote(me vs Mike)? I was trying to get people to vote Mike instead of you, but it became clear that Dave and Jamie weren’t going to change their mind before final 5. I actually DID send in a vote to Logan that said Mike’s name on it, but things were rushed for me at that time since my computer was broken, and I only changed my vote 2-3 hours before the votes were due. I really didn’t have time at the library before work, and it felt fake to send you just 3 or 4 sentences saying “sorry i can’t save you”. I did feel badly, but I did make it a point to tell you i had no choice right after you got voted out, when i bought a new computer…

3-What was your best move? I think my best move was trying to get Shyam voted out, and taking the risk that people wouldn’t want to do that before the other Apus were gone. I also think that talking to people and attempting to get rid of Brian’s idol without him knowing he was safe was a great move, but that was not strictly a solo move and involved several people.

4-Why should I vote for you? I feel like I deserve your vote because I played a good well-rounded game. I contributed to challenges for my team, I had decent strategy, and was able to create good relationships and build trust fairly easily. I was also willing to talk strategy with people whom not many other players were taking the opportunity to do so, and I think that gave me a little bit of a strategic advantage in the game. I also think i deserve your vote because I put in a LOT of time thinking about this game. I was off work due to injury for the 1st 5 weeks of this game and bored as hell, so this game was basically what kept me busy and I cared about the outcome of this game very much.

5-When the final 5 alliance was formed? Our Final 5 started talking i’d say during the first or second week of the game, and really solidified after the Francisco vote since we knew then that we could all be trusted for sure.

6-What do you think about my decision of mutiny to APUS?
I think there were pros and cons to it. I think you took the risk that you wouldn’t be targeted immediately before the others and it paid off for you as opposed to Kristine and Carl, and it gave you the opportunity to talk with everyone in the game before the merge. On the other hand, come merge time most of the Ooc tribe didn’t trust you as much as they would have if you hadn’t mutinied, but when you mutinied there was no way for you to know that ooc would win every immunity challenge from then till the merge…

7-Did you really wanted to go the final 2 with me? I did want that starting at about the time we had conversations about you telling Apus we were voting Brian, but at the same time I knew that I would only be willing to do that if there was a 100% chance I could get away with it. If at F6 players like Jamie and Dave had agreed to vote Mike out, yes, I would have tried to take you as far as possible, but as soon as that looked impossible I stuck with my original plan with Ooc.

8-Who was the leader of the OCC’s alliance? I really don’t think we had an outright leader, and that’s what made us work. Since we only had to go to tribal once pre-merge, the decisions on who should go after the merge were fairly clear cut about who should leave. So there wasn’t one particular person who called the shots, but some people had more influence than others on specific votes; it really changed depending on the tribal.

9-Who do you think played the best game(you can’t choose yourself)? The best all-around game, by far Dave Bronson. He absolutely crushed the challenges come merge time and also was a huge reason we won challenges during the first half of the game. I wouldn’t call him the outright “leader” of the tribe, but I do see him as the glue that held the group together and could easily be trusted. If he made the finals in this game he probably would win at least 6-3 or 7-2 against any player in the Ooc alliance.

10-What was my best quality in the game? I think your best quality was adaptability. When something wasn’t working you moved on to something new. In the end, this did cause some players to distrust you, but it was definitely a ballsy strategy that never made the game dull. I think your all-or-nothing game was a great quality especially combined with a somewhat quieter and complicated under-the-radar strategy. I’ve compared your strategy to that of Suzie Smith of Survivor Gabon, where she did similar moves that you did, and ended up almost winning in the final vote.

Noah SpiderJew Thank you Marcelo for the questions. I thought your game was ok. Honestly I think you did well for being a target so much and staying. Would I play a game like that? No but it seemed to have got you to final 6 so it worked for you. My best move was probably a very confusing move. Getting rid of my idol. I think it showed that I trusted my allience and the people I was with. It took a target off me because a few people have tol me that they wanted me out due to my idol. Had you stayed with OOC then I think you could have lasted longer, I honestly think so. When you switched tribes to Apus, I must say I was confused. I know when you got voted out the reason I did was I felt like you left us hanging. Now how others felt then I’m not sure buy that was me. We got along and you wanted to keep me and vote out Francisco. So it was a confusing move. Also one move that most people would overlook was the fact i got no votes so as david said him trying to tie a vote with me and someone else, would have kept me and not them.
When we were in OOC, we talked a lot but after you flipped I felt I couldn’t trust you. When you came back to us in the merge you wanted back in the OOC allience. I felt like it was trying to make us take you back after you left us. Had you stayed then it may have been different. I never really talked to you bc you lied to me a lot and I knew I could not trust you. I voted for mike because he was part of the 5, and he never left us hanging, like you.
I think you should vote for me based on the fact that I never got votes, I was able to get an idol, I was pretty honest with everyone. I never made a deal with you and broke it. I think I was never a threat to anyone. I got rid of an idol to gain trust. If you can respect my game play, then vote for me. Everyone had to play their own game and I played the way I felt was best for me. I think I also have come I learn I was never surposed to get past 5 or even 6. I made it past all that and the fact that I had a huge fight with 3 members of my tribe and I made it past.
Honestly Dave played the best game as in challenges. I’m not sure who played the best social game.
After eamon was voted out, I’m not sure why you were taegetted next other then the fact you, in our minds, we’re Apus now. And Apus was the enemy. But the best thing about your game was the fact you were liked. You were liked and you never fought with anyone. That helped you a lot and the fact you made deals with the right people.

Eamon J Jawatin
So after reading the opening statements, now I have no idea who should I vote for.
Ok let’s start with David Racine.
Let me be honest here, I have no idea who and what’s up with you, heck I dont even realized you’re inside this game coz for me you don’t really shine as a player. I know your name is David, but inside this game, I only know a guy name Dave Bronson. lol.

Noah, at first I really like you coz I think you got some funky name , SpiderJew and I thought you’re funny and easy to get along with. You tried to approach me several times and asked me to get rid of Carl Hagemann and Kristine. You even flirted with me. I wasn’t realized that you’re into boys, but when people told me that you are, and when I check the conversation, when you said that to me “You are just a big teddy bear” I was like… okay. Now I get it.

With that being said, I’m still have not yet decide who I want to vote for. You know , I think Marcelo Campos should be in the final 2. I seriously adore his gameplay eventhough he back-stabbed me.

So, to get my vote, please tell me 10 reasons why I am such a threat for you guys. Oh yeah I know I’m good, and to tell you the truth, if it wasnt because of my hosting role in my own ORG, I could have focus to this game and just play my idol. Marcelo knew I was going home, and he didnt tell me. I was only rely on him alone coz I really believe him, but he’s OOC for live so meh. And that’s the only reason why I ended up in the jury.

Remember, ignoring my requests will make you lose my SUPA special vote. My vote could be the swing vote ya know.

Marcelo Campos THANKS EAMON!!!!!

1. You were a strong player between me and the finals.
2. You were Apus, we know they would do what they had to do to stay.
You were not an immediate threat to me. People wanted you out because you were more of a threat to them, hints why you left when you did. I do like you, you were a cool dude but those were my only 2 reasons.
April 15 at 2:35pm via mobile · Like
David Racine Yeah I realized soon after the merge that some Apus members members would maybe see it as “Dave Bronson” and “another Dave”; and to be honest; that’s how I wanted it to be for awhile. I think I did a good job at shining and showing my game in the latter half of the game, but still did it quietly.

We were only on the same tribe for a very short time, but I do have some reasons why you were a threat:
1) I had been told by Shyam that Chris was in charge and wanted him out and that’s why Shyam switched. After Chris was voted out I received information that if anyone would have risen up against him, it would be you.

2) Before they mutinied one of the three (I forget if it was Carl, Marcelo, or Kristine) outright told me that it was you who convinced them to switch.

3) I didn’t know you but if you had the charisma to help get 3 members to switch tribes and start an uprising on your own, you would be very effective and dangerous come merge time.

4) You were a threat because you weren’t afraid to speak your mind. I already knew you were an effective leader, but when you had that argument with carl on the main page I saw that it would be a bad idea to get on your bad side.

I know it’s not 10 reasons, but I hope it’s good enough to convince you 😛

It is true, I managed to convince 3 people to jump ship.
No it’s not true about Chris. He didnt take any of the leadership of my beloved APUS, he is a team player.

It’s a false information that I received from few players that he actually playing a secret agent to OOC, and I managed to gather enough people to vote him out. Turned out it was Marcelo Campos , the guy I trusted 100%.

Again, it was because of Marcelo , that caused me been blindsided.
And you said it was you who Marcelo worked with. For that, I congratulate you , as a newbie , that’s able to knock me out from the game. 🙂

Noah SpiderJew Behind all of what? The votes? When the merge came we Brian was a huge target. I never wanted you to go first. I had openly said that to people. I thought, at the time, Brian was the biggest threat but I was out numbered. And how would flipping to Apus have helped me? It wouldn’t have. Like I said to Brian. Would I have loved to work with you guys, yes, but it would have not helped me get further then what I was going to be if I stayed with OOC. About marcelo, David wanted Marcelo to join us again come merge just in case Shyam flipped, we had a back up plan. I ha to say what I had to say to try and pick Marcelo’s brain a little, totally thinking he is going to lie to me. And another thing, 6 people were behind you leaving, that means David. I did not want you to go but the others made up there mind and told me that is what is going on, when I told you Brian that was the plan at that point. I did not know until the votes were due in a few hours that the vote was you. Believe me or not. That’s the truth.

Dave Bronson
Challenge XVIII: Dave’s Vote

Viewers getting your last look at the Wacky tribe. Dave voted out at the last Tribal Council.

Hey, that’s me! Hello there boys and girls! 😀

Over the last couple months, I spent a lot of time working closely with David and Noah. I’m fully aware of the type of game you both played and the strategies you employed. I have no questions that need answering.

The only thing now that I want to see from you is creativity. So here is your last chance to show me how artistic/funny/clever you can be.

My vote will go to whoever writes and performs a better song. If only one of you posts a song, my vote will go to that person. Musical accompaniment (piano, ukulele, beat-boxing grandomther etc.) would be nice but not necessary. Record the audio/video and post it here in the group for all to see. It doesn’t have to be long (30-60 seconds is fine), but it should pertain to the game and perhaps our relationship within it. Make me laugh and receive my vote. Sound simple enough?

Good luck.

PS: Yes, I’m dead serious.

David Racine I don’t know how long we have to complete this, but I hope Sunday night isn’t too late… haha I refuse to have my girlfriend in the house as she jeers at me singing into the webcam for “that facebook game you’re obsessed with”.

Brian Whitehead
Hey Guys,
I’ve been having internet issues of Racine like proportions so I haven’t been able to post my questions yet. Basically, I just want to know which past Survivor your game was most like and which past Survivor my game was most like. Also, Noah, when you were claimed to be interested in flopping after the Shyam vote, how much of that was sincere, and how much of that was playing me? Congrats to both Noah and David for making it this far!

David Racine Thanks!!! I was actually really hoping someone would ask me this exact question since from the first day I’ve kind of tried to model the strategy and manner of one of my Top 5 favorite Survivor winners: Earl Cole of Survivor: Fiji. While I don’t claim to have played anywhere near a perfect 9-0 game like he has, I think there are similarities between the way we approached the game. We both managed to stay out of the crosshairs for the most part, all the while being right in the thick of the action and always part of the core group of decision-makers. We both played strategically while benefiting from being likeable yet somewhat forgetable to be honest. I can’t help noticing a comment by Eamon in another thread where he told Marcelo something along the lines of “it would be much more exciting if you and I were in the finals”, and I again draw similarities between Earl and myself; not exactly a heartbeating, thrilling performance to watch, but the little subtleties we use to talk to people and slowly put our quiet strategy together piece by piece are what make our gameplay work in the end. I also like how in Fiji Earl progressed from being “just there” pre-merge, to more noticeable and relevant at merge, and in the home stretch the groundwork of his strategy that he’d been working on all game really revealed itself. That’s how I wanted my game to go from day 1, and hopefully i’ve done a decent enough job of it to earn your vote.

As for what Survivor you are like? I wish I was able to see your game pre-merge , but from what i’ve seen (and this might seem like a strange comparison) Palau Stephanie Lagrossa. You both came into a merge on the wrong side of the numbers but were able to make it deeper into the merge than others by a strategy nowhere close to the classic “under-the-radar” strategy. You fought back with charisma, you gave good alternatives to those you wanted to align with, and gained the respect of everyone along the way, but eventually you got beat by the numbers. I think every member of the Palau jury thought that had she been with the winning team she would have dominated the game, and you definitely gave off similar impressions to the Ooc tribe, that’s for sure.

Again, thanks for the question, if you have anymore questions for me that will make your decision easier please don’t hesitate to ask.
April 15 at 12:06am · Like
Noah SpiderJew Well thank you Brian. The idea of me flipping was just an idea. Had I been beneficial to myself I would have done it. The idea came from when David told me that myself and Jamie would be out at 5 and 4. At that time I needed an alternative plan just in case that was the truth. When I sat and really thought about it, I realized it woul never really help me get any further that it would if I did not flip. Either way I was looking at 5th or if I by some shot in hell wan an immunity, maybe 4th. But the other option that ran threw my head was if I do flip. Apus could go tell the OOC people that I flipped and it would have been an easy vote, and myself having no one and me leaving the game. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. I wish you were with the OOC tribe from the beginning. I really did like you a lot and everything I said to you was 100% sincere. I honestly was going to flip. I had learned of deals that were floating around. David/me/Jamie, David/Dave/mike, David/Marcelo. Knowing I was not in any of those then I had to consider what was best for me. I ha a better chance of getting further with the OOC tribe bc I had been with them
Longer, I had no shot with the Apus tribe.

David, you played a great game, similar to the game I envisioned myself playing before Chris was voted out and I decided to change my tactics. I just hope this doesn’t mean that next time I will play like Guatemala Stephanie. My personal answer for myself was South Pacific Ozzy, of all people, due mostly to my ability to be on the wrong side of a 6-2 vote, and somehow reemerge in the center of my tribe, but that was all premerge.

Noah, thank you for your honesty. I certainly would have tried to keep you longer than Marcelo if you flipped, as I seemed to be the only person who didn’t trust him, but you clearly made a wise choice since you made the final 2.

Congrats to both, and time for me to figure out who I’m voting for!

Alright, thanks jury for your questions. David, Noah, this is your last chance to address the jury before (most of them) go to vote. Post your last public statement whenever you’re ready.

David Racine Alright guys, so i’m actually pretty sad that this is the end of the game. I’ve had such an unbelievable time playing the game, adapting to the different challenges that came up, and just getting to know and interact with each of you. Like I’ve told some of you, I actually signed up for this game because I was pretty much bed-ridden and off of work with a back injury and had nothing to do all day. This game not only gave me something to do to keep me sane, but actually gave me something to commit to and care about deeply. I put so much time into this game and thinking about different strategies, that nothing would make me happier than to win in my very first Org.

I think by know you all pretty much know my strategy and my complete game so i don’t need to recap everything and give you another excruciatingly long novel to read like my opening statement. I do want to say that through answering your questions and giving you a very detailed opening statement, I was completely “open book” and honest with you regarding what happened. I never denied one thing I did in this game, and I did so because even though there were betrayals at some points within the game, I knew I would be able to stand before the jury and explain each and every move I did and how it lead me to this point. I’m not going to sit here and bash my opponent’s game, but I do feel like i’ve owned up to my actions comparatively better than him in answering my questions, and always gave the truthful break-down of every move I was questioned on. Also, there might be a few things I would change about my game if I had to do it over, but I can genuinely say that I am happy with the way my different strategies and plans turned out.

As for my Ooc alliance mates, I loved being on a team with each and every one of you. Everything from winning all those pre-merge challenges to going deep in the merge was a great experience, and I loved that even though we began as an alliance of players who had never played together (with the exception of Noah and Jamie who knew each other) we meshed together like we had played a dozen games in an alliance.

For the Apus members, I may have not gotten to know you as well, but you were certainly great opponents, and i’m not forgetting that Ooc won some of those pre-merge immunities to luck related to internal issues that were happening on your side, or else the road would have been MUCH harder. I hope that through answering your jury questions that you’ve gotten to know what kind of game I’ve played and seen some of the moves I made to get to this point. It was my fear coming into the Final 2 that some might not feel right voting for someone who’s game they did not know and whose strategies were relatively unknown, so in giving fairly long answers to the questions asked I hope that I was able to reveal a bit more about myself and give you reasons to write my name down.

So that’s pretty much it. I hope I’ve made a good case for your individual votes in my responses to your questions, and I certainly hope to play in games with you all in the future.

Noah SpiderJew I never got here by accident. My gameplay did. I never rode coattails. I made moves. I played what was best for me. If I lied, so did others. If I back stabbed, so did others. That should not be held against me.

Jury, the hour is upon us. Over the past several days, you have been gathering information as to whether David or Noah is worthy of the title of Sole Survivor and the winner of the grand prize of random perks that go along with it.

Remember you are voting FOR a winner. Although next time I might have the jury vote against someone just for the heck of it. I’ll make that change once NASCAR changes their rule and has everyone drive to the right.

For the final time, it is time to vote. Jury, you’re up.
.
.
.
Once the votes are read the decision is final and the person with the highest number of votes will be crowned the winner of SCWL 2 immediately. I’ll read the votes.

MOM: Logan, get off the computer this instant!

LOGAN: But mom, my online friends are waiting for me to post the jury votes!

MOM: Don’t talk back to me young man. You haven’t done your chores for a week, and your room is really messy.

LOGAN: I’ll do that as soon as I’m done posting this.

MOM: That’s what you said yesterday. And the day before. And the week before. And did you take in the bottles in the garage to the bottle depot? I’ve been waiting to clean the garage for months but your damn bottles are scattered about everywhere!

LOGAN: Argggggh.

MOM: Ever since school ended you’ve been rotting your brain out with that UFC and reality shows and those First Fantasy RPG games. Plus you’re always surfin on that Facebook and the twitter. And when were you gonna hand out resumes? Or get your license? You’re twenty, Logan. When I was–

LOGAN: Okay, okay. I’ll do that right away.

MOM: So don’t you dare post that jury vote until you get all your stuff done.

LOGAN: Well, can I at least post my blogs? Those take a lot less time than hosting.

MOM: Fine. But don’t be on there too much.

LOGAN: Phew, okay. I’ll just post my episode one blog and I’ll get right on the other stuff.

Oh the memories. But for David and Noah, it’s time to end the suspense and put this season to bed. This is one of those rare times where you want to see your name inside those brackets. The person with the most votes is declared the winner of SCWL 2, bragging rights, the title of Sole Survivor, and the zero dollar cash prize and virtually no other perks that go along with it.

TC VOTING

BRIAN,

(DAVID)

Reason: You deserve it. You played an amazing game!

DAVE,

My vote is for my good friend and buddy,

(Mr. David Racine)

There can only be one Survivor and you did everything to deserve that title. Congratulations.

EAMON,

I vote for David Raccine

Sigh. It should be him voting for me to win.

JAMIE,

So this vote is really hard because I still don’t know who I want to vote for. My heart is telling me to vote for Noah, but my head is telling me to vote for David.

With Noah, I felt like he was trying to tell the truth in his jury responses, but it still felt like he wasn’t telling the whole truth and he was still trying to be shady. I want to believe everything he said, but I don’t. It still bothers me that he tried to lie to me after I was voted out. That is one thing I’m still hung up on, which surprises me because I shouldn’t base my decision on that one fact.

On the other hand, there is David. We talked, but I felt like I was closer with Noah throughout the game and that is important to me. When David was doing his jury thing, I felt like he was telling the truth. But it really annoyed me the way he talked about things. He was trying way too hard and he came off real cocky to me and I don’t like that.

I really don’t think it’s going to matter how I vote. I’m pretty sure everyone on the jury is going to vote for David, but who knows?

VOTE:

Noah

REASON:

This was a really tough decision to make, but in the end, I feel like Noah played a slightly better game than David.

LEIF,

(DAVID – Newbies for the win!) I am voting for David. He sought out what he said he would do to let it be known that he is here to play. And he did. I admire his gameplay and his way of not “begging” for votes and that has been what most impressed me. Hope he wins!

LISTER,

Both Noah and David have played a good game but unfortunately for them I can only vote for one of them and I must choose who I feel deserves the win more than the other. It’s a tough decision, but I think I shall go with… DAVID RACINE!

MARCELO,

DAVID!!!

MICHAEL,

(Noah way I’m not voting for David Racine!)

I’m voting for Racine to win, he played the game like a boss, he was smart, challenging, and awesome. He deserves this. Congrats man, good luck!

SHYAM,

Am I supposed to cast my vote here?
If yes, my vote is for David.

How did this happen? How did a newbie who was on the outside of his tribe prior to the merge get to the Final Two? With disappearances in rounds thirteen and fourten David was the player closest to ejection in the entire history of the series. This was also his first ORG ever and dominated the jury vote more than Adam and Mervin who were considered locks to win this game upon entering Final Tribal Council.

And what about Noah’s roller coaster ride in this game? He filled out the expectations of being in second place after getting into the most vicious fight of the season, but he ended this game nowhere near the goat that I thought he was going to be. What were his fatal flaws in Final Tribal Council? And does he regret not taking Michael to the Final Three?

It’s the Final Two exit interviews and mock awards show. . .next!
