SCWL 4 Episode 1

SCWL 4: Episode 1

October 1 – October 7 2012

Records: Most active opening round; earliest elimination of a captain; closest opening TC vote where all members vote; all eighteen present during the two hour block of Opening Day in some capacity.

Tribes: Upsa and Land (Coo combinations have all been used)

Rewards: Umut and Clayton are captains and given final idol clue; Macneil receives info about picking jury number; Heeral receives Phil Keoghan note; Heeral and Macneil receive individual immunity; Ryan and Vincent receive Mutiny Triggers; Jessica receives hidden individual immunity idol

Opening Day Challenge: Vote for a Captain!

Players cast two votes for who they want to be captain.

Tiebreaker for Opening Day Challenge: Rock-Paper-Scissors between Macneil and Clayton that changes how the whole season plays out and another tie between Heeral and Brian.

Individual Immunity Challenge: Coconut Chop

Winner receives individual immunity.

“Loser” receives Mutiny Trigger.

Winners: Heeral and MacNeil

Losers: Ryan and Vincent

Tribal Immunity Challenge I: Tribal Encryption

General Notes: Easy encryption where most players need to participate. Mind game with the tiebreaker

Winner: Land.

Raz was the first one to post a shirtless picture of himself right?: No, it was actually Umut. For once.

I thought MacNeil would wait until episode two to post her first video: Nope. Sorry, bud. Take a drink.

I bet nobody else will post a video: Renee posted one too. Survivor music played in background et al. Take another drink.

How Many References to Pop Culture based on People’s Names Did Logan Use During the Pick Em: Not as much as other seasons, but still enough.

Tribal Council #1: Umut voted out 5-4 against Razzy.

Past Votes Tracker: Razzy (4)

NOTES FOR ALL OPENING DAY REWARDS

REWARDS

Congratulations, you have received information concerning the final immunity idol of this game.

Unlike the past four seasons, this is not a puzzle.

To retrieve the final idol: Be the first one to cast a rogue vote at two Tribal Councils.

That means when you are at Tribal Council, you must vote be the only vote for whichever player you voted against. Hence why it’s ‘rogue’.

NOTE: If multiple people accomplish this goal in the same round, it will be whoever is first to three rogue votes. And so on and so forth.

P.S. This will be announced to your tribe following the completion of your tribe’s first Tribal Council.

Congratulations! You finished third in the opening challenge.

Your reward is the following:

Once it is down to twelve players, you will decide whether the jury starts with eleven players remaining or if nine players are remaining.

If you are voted out before twelve players remain, this item will be removed from the game. Instead, everyone will vote on this decision when eleven players remain.

Congratulations! You finished fourth in the opening challenge!

Your reward is as follows:

It’s Phil Keoghan in a Bottle. When twelve players remain, Phil Keoghan will reveal himself and force an ultimatum upon you.

If you’re eliminated before twelve players remain, this reward will be handed over to the next highest placing contestant in the opening challenge.

MACNEIL WINS INDIVIDUAL IMMUNITY! Guaranteed a one-in-seventeen shot of winning this game! Hmmm. Doesn’t sound that dramatic when I put it like that.

I said there would be a brand new item debuting this game after the challenge.

In the past three seasons, I have always offered a mutiny at the start of round five. I thought I’d switch things up this season.

Vincent, you finished dead last in this challenge. Since you appear to be in the worst position due to being first ousted from the challenge, you have been awarded the Mutiny Trigger. That means at any point in the game pre-merge you can announce to use the Mutiny Trigger. The game will freeze for 24 hours. In that 24 hours, everyone will have the option to mutiny to the opposing tribe.

This item can only be used once. So choose wisely.

For the other seven of you — I got nothin’. Tribal immunity challenge will be posted a few hours from now. I’ll see you then.

EPISODE ONE BLOG

Before I discuss the season premiere, I’d like to take a moment to cover a few basic pre-season notes.

1) Upon the conclusion of SCWL 3, there was a series of accusations made that Jonas, Elmo, and Silver were all aliases of well-known ORG players. In fact, one of the aliases was accused of being Noah from last season. Someone playing back-to-back in a series where returning players are banned unless there is a specific theme is a major no-no. I can see the temptation being there because I don’t have real life connections to most of these players and don’t get involved with the cliques, thus reducing my chances of catching an alias.

So at the end of SCWL 3, I handed out a survey to players from SCWL 1 and 2 about their experiences in the game and to give feedback. One of the questions was how to deal with aliases. Mervin, the winner of SCWL 1 and SurviveWar host, informed me that the pre-season torch pictures submitted by contestants serve as a way to prevent identity fraud.

I didn’t want to force people to submit a photo to be used widespread in the games. That always made me uncomfortable in past ORGs when my picture was displayed, so I was adamant that the pre-season photo for each player would never be released. No point alienating a group of people who want an authentic online experience. And it added a barrier to ensure that people who wanted to be in this ORG were serious about it rather than the practice of some players who want to be guaranteed a spot whenever they sign up for an ORG and quit the ones they think they can’t win. The goal for SCWL is to ensure we have the most competitive field possible.

2) We had our largest application pool to date. Usually I hover around 20 players and get down to my final cast of 18 after the Qualifying Questionnaire. On top of that, someone drops out about six hours prior (or after) the game has started, leading me to find a 21st player. That’s what has happened in SCWL 1, 2, and 3.

So how many signed up for SCWL 4? Twenty-five people. Amazing, I know. However, seven of them never answered the Qualifying Questionnaire. The good news for them is that if they apply for SCWL 5 and complete the Qualifying Questionnaire, they’ll be guaranteed a spot. I received complaints once the cast was announced from applicants who didn’t do the Qualifying Questionnaire. Perhaps I need to be clearer on the difference between the application and Qualifying Questionnaire. Who knows.

3) Usually I release the cast list once the Opening Day challenge begins. I have never released it any earlier than that. Sure, players leak to each other who has been confirmed, but there is always a chunk of players who remain a mystery. This season I thought to switch things up by sending out the cast list with 24 hours notice.

Why did I do it?

I was curious if it would change anything.

Did it change anything?

In the long run, no. In the short term it certainly created a level of paranoia and alliance contingencies being formed to set up for post-merge. It probably contributed to some of the post-merge flops that could occur. Lastly, I was being sent confessionals hours before Opening Day even began.

OPENING DAY SHATTERS RECORD

Holy crap. If you dig through the group, you will see that SCWL 3 had six participants show up for Opening Day. One third of the cast played while one third showed up late or ignored the challenge and the remaining one third were absent. I recall delaying the Opening Day challenge by ten minutes because only four had shown up on time. Tina making fun of me for delaying a challenge after saying “the challenge will PROMPTLY begin at 7” will stick with me forever.

To see fourteen out of eighteen sign in for SCWL 4 is unbelievable. It’s the inverse of SCWL 3. A couple people showed up a couple minutes late but were still able to participate. Then one forgot to play despite showing up, and the remaining one showed up far too late. I doubt this attendance record will be broken ever again. We had all eighteen be online in the same time and space. In a game that spreads from west coast to east coast to Europe to Australia to Philippines to South America is unbelievable.

Welcome to 2012 (although today is New Year’s Day so welcome to 2013).

What was it like hosting for eighteen people plus alumni simultaneously? Fun and hectic. I had eleven conversation windows open at once. I don’t think I have reached that high even as a contestant at the first TC of a pre-merge or post-merge vote. And I bet everybody else’s inboxes were equally flooded. It’s what makes Opening Day so enjoyable for me. The event happens only three times per year because of the intensity and effort but it is memorable and worthwhile for it to be a lone standing tradition from the prequel season.

WHY VOTE ON CAPTAINS

I had a similar twist planned in season two of my Survivor fanfic. Having an impromptu Tribal Council vote on Opening Day where power is elected has been something that has intrigued me for a while. Survivor: Samoa did something similar, but it was weak and meant virtually nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Yesterday I found my pre-game twist and challenge notes. In the margins I kept scratching out whether a player would vote for one or two people to be captain. This was because I didn’t know how many people would show up to cast votes. If only six showed up like in SCWL 3, then yes, I absolutely need two votes per person. But if all eighteen show up, then thirty-six voted would take really long to tally.

I went with two votes. Then fourteen people show up.  Because ORGers have the shortest attention span of any creatures on the planet, I knew that being as efficient and accurate with counting the votes was critical. If there was a miscount it would be the world’s ugliest ‘what if’ in SCWL history, but if I took too long then everyone would be impatient and sign off before the tribal pick ’em.

I am proud to take nine minutes to count up twenty-eight votes, verify, and answer about ten different messages while I was counting. I believe I was eating sweet potato fries at the time too.

UMUT AND CLAYTON ELECTED

Not surprised. Umut and Clayton seem to be the most intense players in the game, and their movement to socialize with every player in the game no doubt led to the undesired captain roles. MacNeil was tied with Clayton so everyone viewed her as a co-captain. It’s a bit amusing to think MacNeil and Umut could have been on opposing tribes if all she did was win a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors against Clayton. Then Clayton wouldn’t have a captain’s role.

If anything influenced the outcome of the game, it may have been this lone game of Ro-Sham-Bo.

If MacNeil had to go to Tribal Council on Opening Day, she would have been voted out. Her Facebook froze numerous times during the tiebreaker that she couldn’t send me a message for ten minutes. In the meantime, everyone was bombarding me and getting angry about the whole ordeal. Poor MacNeil. I can’t imagine how frantic she was to choose “rock,” “paper,” or “scissors”.

Everyone on the sidelines screaming “It’s not rocket science!” in a Dave Cruser fashion was rather amusing. Not for MacNeil, but it was for me.

I should note that because there are two Angies in this game that one had to be called by a nickname or last name.

WHY MACNEIL

Because it is the name of the President of Earth from Futurama prior to Richard M. Nixon, and is the name of Single Female Lawyer. “Bring me MacNeil!” And MacNeil sounds very official and bureaucratic. There are too many dirty minds in the ORG world to call a player “Hancock” every round.

BACK TO THE CAPTAINS

Oh yeah. Captains never win in my series. We had four captains in the prequel, and two captains per season ever since. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 17th, 7th, 17th, 3rd, 10th, and 9th. A very ugly track record. Aren’t these supposed to be the most competitive and strategic people? Or is a ‘captain’ role the creator of such a big target that they are bound to fall?

I had a feeling Umut could use the captain role to his advantage. I had a feeling Clayton would crumble under the pressure. Suddenly MacNeil is under the rader. Captains never win, and winners never captain.

That’s not a typo.

WHY REWARDS FOR THIRD AND FOURTH

Eh. Last season I did some random thing where the last person remaining in the Opening Day challenge that didn’t win a round at the end of the challenge but was not eliminated either would receive the Medallion of Power, while the highest ranking captain handed out a reward.

This season I made things easier by going with the next two highest vote getters. Heeral and Brian tied, so they played for who got the last reward. Why did the jury reward go to third and the merge reward go to fourth? Because the jury reward could be used to impact the game in a greater way than slightly altering when a merge takes place. Tribes never merge even in ORGs so what’s the big deal between 9 vs. 3 and 9 vs. 2 compared to 7 jurors casting votes or 9 jurors who could sway the outcome.

I bet MacNeil and Heeral would have liked to trade after the fact.

THE INSANELY ACTIVE CAST

Both camps blew up. Luckily I had a Coconut Chop challenge planned. Usually people are worn out at the end of Opening Day, or people want a one day breather before doing anything else. Luckily they were socializing so much that alliance building needed a full days’ work before the dreaded Coconut Chop.

I have  a policy where I don’t have a Coconut Chop post-merge unless it’s the twist in SCWL 2 where an additional immunity challenge follows before Tribal Council to make things fair. In the offseason I thought it would be great to do it in the opening round as the individual challenge, thus not dictating who goes to Tribal Council.

And the results were fascinating.

Upsa was ridiculously active and competitive. Everyone schemed and slanted the table to decide who would be first and who would be last. I hinted at an additional reward so people would be on their toes even more. Plus I hate giving out rewards after the opening round.

I don’t want to say Land was less competitive, but their level of ferocity compared to Upsa was much lower. They were subdued. The only conflict that occurred was between Jason and Heeral. Speaking of which. . .

JASON VERSUS HEERAL

I predicted a repeat of PJ’s Survivor. As soon as Jason spoke out against Heeral and calling her names was bound to send him out the door first. I was expecting Land to throw the first challenge or not try that hard just so they could boot Jason. It’s fine to bury a player if they have a bad reputation or on a tribe with people who are begging to get her out, but Land’s dynamic was too kind and generous.

Passive is probably the word I’m looking for. Everyone was fine with picking a number between 1 and 100, and leaving Papa Hood with the trust and responsibility. So what if Matt rigs the number? All it does is guarantee someone safety for one round, and you can lie to others later on saying that Heeral is his alliance and use this incident as fabricated proof.

Yeah, that’s what I would have done.

But Jason misread the group. His only hope was if a counter alliance against Heeral was formed, and people knew Jason could be used in addition to being an apparent goat. However, a goat marked on round one is very rare unless they are strong in challenges. Unfortunately Jason was the quietest of the bunch. He was in trouble.

COCONUT CHOP

Matt’s magic number was 33, and everyone trusted him it was right. So Heeral would get first, and everyone promised not to chop any of Heeral’s coconuts. Heeral easily wins immunity, and Ryan finishes last to earn the Mutiny Trigger.

MUTINY TRIGGER

I’ve had this twist in my mind for a while. It was just a matter of the logistics for it, and maximize its odds of being used. I figured handing it out to the last place finisher in a Coconut Chop challenge would, in effect, be handing the person lowest on the totem pole the chance to head to the other side in the early rounds of the game.

I predicted at least one being used. SCWL 3 is the only season where all players blatantly refused to mutiny. Things would likely be so jumbled up on both tribes after a Coconut Chop that everyone would be questioning their own position.

But if everyone is questioning their own position, doesn’t that mean nothing is solidified at your own camp and that you have wiggle room to improve your position? That was the downside to handing out this Mutiny Trigger.

ANNE SCREWS UP

During Coconut Chop, everyone on Land including Jason agreed to not target Heeral to honour the numbers game and give Heeral immunity.

.

.

.

So why the heck did Anne chop Heeral?! Even Jason honoured the deal. Judging by what everyone said at camp and in confessionals, the first person out may no longer be Jason. Anne is on the ropes. Nobody thought Anne was doing this intentionally which made it worse for her. Her alliance mates now had to worry about Anne going rogue at whim rather than reason. Unpredictable allies typically send them home early. Regardless of their good intentions.

“If I was judged by my intentions, I’d be the president of the planet.” — Shane Powers

At this point I wrote Anne off at having any chance of winning. She was unaware people were targeting her, or what exactly transpired, and I don’t think she would have been awarded any credit if she makes Final Two.

UPSA’S CHOP

MacNeil won individual immunity. Being at the forefront of the tribe led everyone to look at her as a leader/target. I doubt people even remembered Umut being the original captain.  Upsa members must be worried that MacNeil is coming off too aggressive and knowing full well that she is forming these relationships with everyone.

I could see MacNeil going home second on Upsa. Right after Mark. But of course, Upsa has to lose. And given how many videos, pictures, chats, confessionals, strategy sessions, but an overall commitment to do well in challenges leads to what I thought would be an unbeatable tribe.

Upsa’s worst members could defeat half of Land’s players, in my mind. Time will tell if I’m proven wrong. The only uspet I could see is penalty idols sabotaging Upsa’s efforts to win challenges. It is their only obstacle.

VINCE EARNS MUTINY TRIGGER

Thanks to a seven-person alliance on Upsa, everybody assumed I wouldn’t give a prize to fifth or sixth so they ensured Brian and Mark would be chopped away at that point. Vince would take the early fall and everyone else could battle for the necklace.

THE TRUTH

Up until the challenge I debated whether to have the Mutiny Trigger offered to fifth or to last. I knew people would likely think that last may earn an item, but I also knew people would know I am aware that people would attempt that.

It was really psychological warfare between myself, Umut, and Raz.

STARTING RIGHT BEFORE CANUCK THANKSGIVING NOT A WISE IDEA

Yeah. October 1st as a start date? In SCWL 1 I had to slow down the game due to Canuck Thanksgiving. Why ruin the momentum after what happened in SCWL 3 where Canada Day and Independence Day stretched out the round by an extra few days? Luckily all of the Canucks proved to be so active in the opening round that I didn’t worry about a significant long weekend delay. But I’ll never start a game in early October ever again.

I CAN’T DISTINGUISH BETWEEN A THIRD OF LAND

Andrew, Ryan, and Luke were all very quiet. Half the time I was afraid to receive a message from them in the opening round because I was scared I would forget which one of them is the RHAPPERS alliance or which one I want to pressure to send in more confessionals. I didn’t want to screw up and reveal a private piece of info. I tried to hang back and be confident to know who was who.

That first round was dang impossible.

THE FLAW WITH THE CAPTAIN’S IDOL VERSUS PERCENTAGES

As compensation for being labeled as captains, not only did Umut and Clayton have first pick of who joined their tribe, but they were given a secret note regarding the final hidden immunity idol.

In the past, the final idol is always a puzzle that does not get solved until post-merge. Usually one genius per season solves it (Mervin, Brian, Eric), and puts us close to nobody claiming the idol. So any season in the future may not have an idol claimed if no geniuses remain in the cast post-merge. An idol that isn’t claimed? That ain’t fun.

So I thought a rogue idol would be neat. It’s simple, new, and adds a whole layer to Tribal Council strategy. Do you eliminate your desired target or do you claim the idol? The first to two rogue votes claims it.

About three days after Opening Day, I realized the flaw. Somebody could intentionally throw the first two challenges, claim the idol, and affectively block anybody from the opposing tribe of claiming the idol. In other words, a player earns the tribe earns an advantage by throwing tribal immunity? That’s just silly.

I should have said ‘whoever has two rogue votes after both tribes have visited Tribal Council twice/thrice’ receives the final idol. Silly me. Maybe next season that will be fixed.

MARK AND BRIAN SCREWED ON UPSA THANKS TO 7-PERSON ALLIANCE

Mark and Brian were pissed by tribal configurations, no doubt. A clear 7-person SurviveWar alliance against two people who do not have those same connections. Land has a similar alliance where only Andrew, Jason, and to a certain extent Matt are on the outside.

I never took these alliances seriously. Why? Because they’re so dang big. Rarely anyone consents to a 7-person alliance to the end. Or rather, all seven people don’t hold to a seven person alliance. It’s tough to check in with everybody, make them comfortable, and ensure your round one instincts about them last until round eleven or twelve, and a tribe rarely merges with seven people on their tribe. Those alliances have no choice but to be flexible due to inactivity, challenge losses, personalities emerging, and greediness.

The only true alliances appeared to be within the pairs and trios spread throughout the game. I predicted this would lead to a wild rollercoaster of Tribal Councils. Nothing is stable. It’s not a case last season where it was split between Bijo vs. Kim and Newbies vs. Veterans on the tribes.

PREVIOUS ALUMNI COMPLAIN ABOUT PRE-GAME ALLIANCES

In the past, my seasons typically recruit a chunk of newbies to the ORG world. Not the case this season. Nobody is a newbie. This is in constrast to SCWL 2 where half the cast were playing for the first time mixed in with a few sophomores. Everyone here had similar social circles when it came to ORGs.

Oddly enough, I wasn’t worried about it. Pre-game alliance pairs in the past rarely do well, and tend to crumble early. I predicted the same to happen here.

Most of the alumni cheered for Land because Upsa had 7/9 people from the exact same games and knew each other extremely well. They wanted players more spread out on Land to do well. But even on Land, a mutual love for Rob Cesternino bonded the tribe.

Ten years later and your legacy still holds out strong.

UPSA CHANNELS JEE, ROBERT, AND JUSTIN TO CALL THEMSELVES THE DREAM TEAM

It was everywhere on their group page. Who is Kobe? Who is Lebron? Jee? Robert? Justin? How did I mix USA basketball with Big Brother 4? Either way, Upsa believed they were unbeatable.

But as always, penalty idols get in the way. Because Raz and Umut both requested penalty idols, neither of them got it this round and significantly dropped their score in the immunity challenge.

ENCRYPTION CHALLENGE

An encryption is always a first round tradition too. I decided to go with an easier one but have zero clues with it. Both tribes solved it quickly. I swear these tribes are much better at encryptions than players of the past. I can remember the SCWL 1 encryption needing ten hints and 55 minutes for Darian to occupy the second necklace.

This season the easier encryption AND special instructions led to Land finishing this challenge in less than thirty minutes. On top of that, Upsa took two hours. The tiebreaker came down to a prediction of the captains. It was their final duty of the game. Clayton was smarter with his guess and Land triggered the upset win. Nobody thought Land would win the opening tribal immunity. The Dream Team was crushed and it was only round one.

In addition. . .

JESSICA HAS THE IDOL

Everyone RHAPPERS agreed on a rotation of who would request the penalty idol. This was to facilitate trust and pick up the idol, according to Clayton. Plus it was an indirect way to know there was a traitor in the group (mainly to oust Jason) if the assigned penalizer didn’t receive the idol. Lucky for Jessica, Jason didn’t request it and Jessica has the idol. Then she shared it with Clayton. There goes her power, but she gains trust in the process too.

So Clayton has an idol, the clue for the final idol, captain’s role, tribal immunity, and a tribe fully trusting him. And he ordered Jessica not to replace it with a fake idol to ensure nobody else on the tribe would claim it, play it, then distrust everyone on the tribe. Curious move. Typically people forget about the fake idol rather than do it intentionally. You’re no fun. I remember the good old days with Apus when they had FOUR fake idols claimed in a row.

Are you trying to be Kim 2.0? I didn’t expect it to happen two seasons in a row.

Meanwhile Raz and Umut are no doubt going mad trying to figure out who blocked them from receiving power.

WHY THE CRAZY VOTE

I really don’t know. Everything blew up. Personally I think equilibrium was induced. The position of everyone in the tribe was made known, therefore everyone had to change their target to who they thought is now the biggest threat. Suddenly Mark and Brian go from dead men walking to possessing all of the power in the world. They decide which titan goes home–Raz or Umut. What the heck? Craziest thing is MacNeil would be gone if she hadn’t won Coconut Chop.

Imagine that. MacNeil as first boot. Everyone would be stunned. It is tough to fathom that happening, but it’s true.

I think it was ultimately a battle of Umut and sidekick MacNeil versus Raz and sidekick Angie. The Eastern European/Eurasian and a female companion named Angie. What an odd way for it to break down. So the other five had to pick a side. They split right down the middle producing a 5-4 vote. It’s the closest opening round vote we’ve had besides the prequel where it was a 2-1-1-1 (4 self-votes) vote. Everyone voting and having it 5-4 is ridiculous.

Although the first round of SCWL 3 was 5-3-1, and was supposed to be 5-4, so it’s not too crazy anymore. Everyone likes five-person alliances. Which they should in a tribe of nine, I suppose.

UMUT’S FIRST ROUND ELIMINATION IS MOST SHOCKING FIRST BOOT OF ALL-TIME

A captain booted one round. And unlike Kevin, Umut didn’t even fall inactive. He was equally active as the rest of the chaos on Upsa. Did Mark and Brian do anything in particular to be saved or was the Umut-Raz rivalry so intense that it triggered a polarization of the group? I don’t know.

But I do know that Umut, somebody was supposed to be in SCWL for the past six months, is booted in the opening round of playing the game.

HOW THIS SMOKES SCWL 3 SEASON PREMIERE IN SO MANY WAYS

– Nobody quit.

– Everyone showed up to Opening Day.

– Roughly half of the players sent in confessionals.

– People talk to their own tribemates

– First tribal immunity challenge is close

– All players actively strategizing

– The first round is one week as opposed to almost two weeks

– Nobody complained

– New twists introduced that ultimately work out

– Happier contestants

– Lauren wasn’t around to delay the game by three days by refusing to vote

– All players vote at the first Tribal Council

– Erases the rough and wicked SCWL 3 finale.

– Sixteen of the remaining seventeen players can still win this game.

Oh, please. I still love Anne. I do feel bad that she had such a tough time getting momentum in this game despite being as active as anybody else. This ORG is not known for being easy by any means.

THE FIRST EXPERIMENT WITH THE FANTASY SCWL POOL BEGINS

One of the main criticisms during the off-season is that viewers and alumni felt alienated from what was going on in the game. I thought a fantasy pool would be neat because I haven’t seen any other ORGs do it. I didn’t expect the fantasy pool to go smoothly, and I assure you this season is an experiment to see how it could work. I decided to let them play for points using Gordon Holmes’ power rankings system.

My biggest regret is not creating a group thread so it would be much easier for everyone to remember and for me to keep track of power ranking due dates. That will be the biggest change for SCWL 5.

Plus I was considering having viewers submitting an optional TC question that a player at TC would have to answer publicly. It would be reminiscent of the questions players receive on the couch during the Big Brother live shows. I’m curious on the feedback for this idea.

ONE ROUND AND MY PRE-GAME PREDICTION IS ALREADY PROVEN WRONG

Dammit Umut. I’m going to lose my own fantasy pool at this rate.

ANDREW,

My votes are for Clayton Spivey & Heeral Desai

ANGIE,

I vote for Umut and Angie M.

BRIAN,

I vote for Luke Everitt as captain

Heeral

CLAYTON,

Day 1: well the games beginning. These first couple days are crucial. Which makes them nerve wracking yet exciting. I havnt talked game or made alliances with anyone. Well I take that back. I had pre-existing relationships with a couple that I gravitated towards right away. Me and Jess are locked of course since we signed up together. While I don’t like making alliances or talking game with players quickly I needed to with heeral. We have a relatively recent rocky relationship. So I needed to capitalize on it fast to solidify our relationship landed on the good side of it in this game. So I needed her to see me as open and up front. Cause last game we played together that’s what made her backdoor me. Cause I was to careful of what I said. Sometimes some vulnerability helps I think. And Anne. If Anne is anything she is impressionable. If u get her fast you have her forever. She is loyal to a fault. We have a POS connection so I reached out immediately ( I also heard she had a minor crush on me so that helps). While people underestimate her she is one hell of a worker bee. Like no other. She works her ass off in team challenges whether its good strategy for her or not. What do these three have in common? I hosted them all in my survivor series. So I have some extra insight into their unfiltered game. I know u can’t always trust heeral but one of those u want with u and not against u.

Those r the only three I have made any semblance of loyalty to. But right now is the time for ground work. I want to get to know everyone. I’ve talked to many of them just as a welcoming thing. Ad got in some interesting convos to make sure I’m in their mind when they think of making alliances. I won’t be the person who they just vote out cause they don’t know them.

Here is my initial opinions on each of my fellow castaways personally and strategically:

Vincent: I like the kid. He heard of my hosting through mere, Karl, and eamon so that was an instant connection and it started a friendly convo. It seemed like the awkward time where we both wait for the other to cave into asking for an alliance. Def an option

Anne: as I said above. Loyal to a fault. Nab her fast nab her for good.worker bee. Hosted her so I have seen her game

Heeral: i have to do something if she is in the game. So I don’t trust her since she backdoored me so….. Fake it till we both come to realize we r good for each others game.

Luke: I talked to him in the obligatory welcome way. I feel this fostered an opportunity to keep me as an option for him. As long as I’m an option for him I’m fine. Seems like a nice kid but hard to gauge his play. May fall into the glitzy overplaying thing if he is a young male.

Fyke: heeral has a connection to him which I’m unsure of. Se made a point to demonize him which makes me think she is hiding him. Either way I would prefer him be on the opposing tribe cause I don’t want him as a variable early game.

Brian: shoot me in the face, never liked the dude. He gives me the creeps. He targeted Jess in this BB game and that’s not good. He hates heeral and if I want heeral as an option that’s not good. Personally I’m praying for him to be on the other tribe. I don’t want to many variables that can go wrong. And he can

Umut: I get a good vibe. Another I had friendly convo with so I’m keeping him in mind. He tried to downplay his survivewar win but it doesn’t bother me. He is good I know. But seems level headed. I don’t like irrational players. I can predict rational players and their moves. I want umut on my tribe. If I can reason with you I like u

Angie H: huh? Why do we have two Angie’s. lol. Oh well. Both seem pleasant. I see her as a none factor. Take her or leave her. By those people turn out to be the swings so I won’t discount anyone yet.

Angie M: I like her. Her personality seems luminescent. But not to blinding. I like her attitude and wouldn’t mind having that presence on my tribe. I like working with older women in ORGs also. It’s sorta my MO. To work with women in general.

Raz: Anne says watch Angie m and him. I believe her. But if I have Anne and Jess at my hip another pair is good. It makes them feel like they have someone to fall back on which fosters comfort with the alliance. Raz and me also had a nice convo about our location, his language and out names and meaning. Groundwork for an amicable relationship is good in the event of a school yard pick.

Renee: Who? Lol. I honestly don’t have an opinion. We shall see.

Matt Hood: Urgh… Heeral heeral heeral. From what I have seen. U don’t need a Bunch of whores on ur tribe. Have 2-3 good ones and everyone else follow on the challenge and do what needs to be done. Heeral wants Matt cause he is a beast. Wy would I want that? That makes him more valuable AND it makes him a big threat come merge. BOO. He wins a lot and yadada. I’m indifferent.

Huckla: yes that is what I am calling him. I asked him if I could call him that cause I like the way it sounds so he said yea and was amused by my asking that. It’s in the subtle things for me.

Andrew: um no idea. Heeral said she wanted him cause he was a challenge whore but doesn’t trust him, um what? Shows the shallowness in her game. U want him cause he is good at challenges even though u don’t trust him? What?!?! A challenge whore who u don’t trust is the worst person to have around.

Gerome: okay come on. Is this effing SurviveWar reunion or something?!?!?! I mean dang. Gerome = umut 2.0 … Er maybe umut = Gerome 2.0 ? I don’t know the chronology. Either way. From my slight interaction with him I see him slightly soft spoken. No I’m no I’m not racist BUT then Asians in the org community tend to team up. And many of them have identical strategies. Flip flop flippity flop. So I hope he isn’t like that.

Mark: he said he hasn’t played in a long time. He is someone I could have on my tribe. Just interested in seeing how he does. Not a big name and ego so that’s nice to work worth.

Jessica: my number 1. As long as she doesn’t over think things or screw us with revealing something she shouldn’t we should be fine. I recently let myself be evicted so she could stay. A calculated move cause she could gain a power and thus avenge us. And forever solidify her as an impenetrable alliance. I helps we are good friends now. Going to LA together to watch the Jeff Probst Show. Enough said. Sink or swim baby. Sink or swim.

Ok that’s it for tonight, I’m a confessional whore and its the beginning so I like to do a big intro one with my whole thoughts on the cast, ill outline my strategy in the coming days.

MY VOTE:
Jessica
Brian

**EDITOR’S NOTE: Clayton just received the captain role and information about how to obtain the final idol**

so can i give my tribe a fake idol clue? lol

once u give me the real idol info?

Day 2: and the games begin. I wasn’t expecting to be leader and I am thouroughly SHOCKED. I wasn’t totally happy with it but it gave me a tad bit leverage in he tribe selection.i picked Jess. She picked heeral. Then heeral didn’t show up and I had Jess pick Anne. And I told Anne to pick Matt.

Me and Matt have struck something up. I like the guy.mi know he is a huge threat but I see him as vital. We cliques and he immediately wanted to work with me. We are both level headed. Of course my loyalty lies wit JFrey and Heeral mostly. But heeral needs to trust me. Ad she wanted Matt. So I do also. Lol. Appease her. I’m happy with the tribe. But I think the other tribe should just be called Survivewar. Come on… Be a lil less obvious I’m ur voting block fools. So that is actually uniting our tribe.

This maneuvering our way into a majority alliance that I’m comfortable with is going to be harder than expected. Matt likes Luke and Andrew cause of challenge strength. Wtf ever. Who cares!?! Ur challenges are organizational and logic it seems. Mind jolt whoreing doesn’t matter. But like most orgers they r blinded by the Ozzy effect. Oh and Jess wants huckla with us which I’m fine with.

We can’t have more than 6 or else it’s to much. Bless we win every challenge. So they six I want that outright is Me, Jess, Heeral, Anne, Matt, and Either huckla/Luke. But realistically idk how I can get the ozzy effect blinded shallowness to fade in Matt and heeral to get them to accept Anne fully and Jess fully. Im having Jess talk to Matt to gain favor though. As of now the REALISTIC 6 I could manage from the get go would be Me, Heeral, Matt, Luke, Andrew, and I could bring Jess in. But that’s not majority in my and Jess’s favor. I would have to protect Anne on the outside andi don’t like juggling fake alliances.

P.s. me and Jess see that it wold have been better to not get this idol clue. Cause I can’t do the rogues now. Because they will auto think its me. We think we will try and work out our majority solidly and then make a faux decision as a team t let one of us rogue it for two rounds and have a “team” idol. I just don’t foresee much I can do myself. Maybe make Anne do two rogues and bet on people being to scared to do it. We just need to make sure we have enough of a majority that we can rogue it and not get screwed.

Day 3: pretty quite day. But I figured something out for the challenge. I didn’t want to deal with a messy vote where we were forced to show some loyalty, or lack there of. I preferred for us to remain “united” as long as possible. This way it appears to be an amicable decision and no vote swaying needs to happen. And if someone rocks the boat and doesn’t do what we decided and follow the chops how we set out then they will look bad. Of course it can go bad and someone will win it that I don’t want to. The only person I would hate to win would be Fyke. If we go to tribal first he would be what I would try and steer things. I have had multiple not so flattering opinions of him givin to me. No outright a dislikes but enough to work with if we have to go to tribal. Also… The whole special whatever that comes along with it makes me nervous. So me or Jess, or even Anne winning it would be ideal. That way we don’t win it by vote jockeying. It’s perfect. And Matt went along with it and put it into the motion. I didn’t want to appear the boss so that’s a good thing. That’s all for now

Day 4: the event I am about to tell you about occurred late last night but I didn’t have time to include it in yesterday’s confessionals (I send u all these partly to keep records for myself).

As a tribe we wanted to meet on google hangout or Skype. To get to know eachother better. Five of us were capable of making it. Which included me, heeral, Jessica, Ryan, and Luke. And we seized the opportunity to make an alliance. A strong one. My two mains heeral and Jess were there. Then Jess likes Ryan a lot and I do to. And he talks to Jess quite a lot. Ad Luke practically begged to be on my tribe, so it all worked out. We preceded to talk from 9:00pm till about 2:30 am PST. We broke down the rules bit by bit to gain more understanding and give ourselves an advantage. Heeral won immunity. Ryan got the mutiny. We planned Jess taking the penalty to contain the idol and/or block the others from getting it. We are going on a penalty idol rotation for who takes it till we get it. We have a majority of 5 in 9 so we are golden. We also plan to use the mutiny to our advantage. If the other tribe drops to 4 us 5 plan to mutiny to ale them out by throwing challenges. Just a bit of strategy talk we discussed last night.

My Jason fyke vote theory is coming to fruition. Last night in a public thread he called out heeral saying he didn’t want her to be immune. A first we thought he didn’t know it was public with people other than Matt since he was talking to Matt. But it turns out he did. He is just that blunt and reckless. This cements ij Heerals mind that we don’t want him and makes a strong case that he is irrational and we don’t want to deal with it come merge

The immunity challenge was amazing. I was amazed heeral did it so fast. But it just means her target grows and we need a secondary plan come final 6/7 to take her out if she goes on an immunity run.

The game is afoot and a lot is happening quickly. If we lose 2moro I think fyke may be leaving. And we think we have a chance of winning the challenge… And a chance of getting Jess that idol. People would be stupid to rock the boat in giving us a penalty so early. The only reason we are is because we feel solid. But anything can happen.

Day 5/6: On day 5 we won our first immunity challenge! But a lot more ham just that occurred. Big stuff. Before we got news of our win we got some info. That info came in the form of Raz. He contacted Heeral. Giving her the answer to the challenge. I was futile since we had finished it nearly 2 hours prior. But his instance that he was on the bottom and hated the “survivecockywar players” were his exact words. But I don’t buy it. It may be true but who knows. I assumed it would be mark first. This and Vincent’s blatant post on the main wall lead me to think they are russelling us. Or attempting to. In HvV he made the heroes think he was on the bottom. Tus giving him an idol. And Raz mentioned he would love to mutiny. BS. Now isn’t the time for us to use it. Vincent, Raz, an Mark all say they will be blindsided (they need to learn what blindsided means obviously) so it seems a lil suspicious.

Anyways. The challenge. We have to assume at least one from the other tribe took the penalty to get their idol since we still won. No way to know if it was more than one. Wich means someone may have it. But that tribe is so full of ego-flippers it’s not good for them. JFrey got it as was our plan. And she told me about the twist. And she gave me the code. Only me. the code is

!!__@@LAND PENALTY IDOL@@__!!

Perfect. Thank goodness. Of course it could be fake but that’s stupid of her. This idol twist makes the weird rule about idols in one of your documents make sense. We discussed the idea of sharing it with the other 3 in the Rappers but I reasoned against it. As long as we don’t let them get he rogue idol then the will never know about the idol twist. Also I convinced her not to make a fake. A fake would only complicate things and scare people from voting certain ways if they arent sure of idols being real or not. Also if they get a fake I assume they will still be told the same rules as Jessica did. Thus revealing Jessica lied to them. So she better not do a fake or it’s her undoing. I hope the next few days are slower. Haha

GEROME,

i,ll vote umut and angie

HEERAL,

Jessica
oh you need two?
Matt

JASON,

umut & Heeral

JESSICA,

i guess i can give an intro confessional. clayton is my numbero uno ally. im really only going to be loyal to him. i really want to play UTR in this game, b/c in other games im way to active and i get targeted. i want to play it safe and be in the middle and just have a good social game. i havent really talked to anyone yet, excpet clayton who is doing alot of the talking. if someone approaches me before tribes are made i will talk but its so iffy right now. i plan to play the wolf in goat clothing. of course i will adapt when i need to do. but i want ppl to see me as riding coattails on clayton so they underestimate me. okay thats all im excited

i vote brian and clayton

Confessional: i got into a five person alliance called rappers. Me, Clayton, Ryan. Luke and Heeral. We are planning on having one person going for the idol. so if we end up getting it stays in our alliance and since we have majority on our tribe if we do get penalized then we can throw other ppl under the bus. And we decided that I get to go for the idol, if i get it, its in my possesion and the one person i would think to use it for would be Clayton. thats a little bad. but hopefully this alliance lasts b/c we could do some serious damage.

i wish to penalize my tribe

is that what i say to get the idol

LUKE,

I would like to vote for brian please
and?
lol im lost
and angie ^
macneil
god im slow xD

MACNEIL,

ouuu the anticipation of having the cast posted. I guess I’m nervous about the schoolyard pick and all. I know that Razvan applied. I was secretly hoping that he would be offline for the whole weekend and oops! Missed the qualifying questions. My hopes sunk when I saw him online on Sunday. They sunk even more when he showed me his “wacky” picture, thus confirming that he will be in the cast if 18 people fill this thing out.

Is it anything personal? Of course not. However, there’s that possibility that I will have to YET AGAIN explain to people that they have nothing to worry about with “RazvAngie”. Atleast this time lol. Last time, I told that story and they really did have something to worry about when we lied our faces off and went to the final 2 together. Maybe the cast wouldn’t know about RazvAngie off the bat, but people in orgs talk. The “oh look you have RazvAngie on your tribe” is just a facebook message away or a wall post.

Then there’s Umut. I got together with David Racine to form this alliance to take him out in a previous game. He mentions this to me as a joke every single time we talk. I really like Umut as a friend, but it’s obvious that we don’t trust each other because of the history. I think it’ll take a few votes before he finally says “ah ok, she’s not the hitman this game.”

I told him that I have 0 desire to mess with him this game. Everything I say is the truth, but there’s always that fine print that you have to watch for. I have 0 desire to mess with him, but if he messes with me, then I will mess with him without him knowing that I am messing with him. Telling a big lie is like a flea on an animal. If you find one, who knows how many there are that you don’t see. If you’re being lied to, it’s obvious that this person doesn’t want to go to the end so you have to get them before they get you.
No hard feelings. It’s just a game tongue *makes trigger sounds*
muahhahha

The plot thickens! I talked to everyone in the cast and here are my current thoughts!

Andrew: I LOVE this guy!!! I wrote “boo!” to him and he played along with it. He got nominated for challenge whore too! I want that guy on my tribe!! My only problem with him is that I think he’s very sensitive and I’m not. I have to keep that at the back of my mind if we’re tribemates.

Clayton: Hmm very social and very nice

Heeral: A little inactive but has a badass reputation oh la la!

Brian: A reputation for being loyal but hasn’t said too much to me, except that he works nights. And hello

Luke: Seems like a cool guy and he has also noticed people being quite…how do you say…extra friendly on threads? I think he’d be a good person to strategize with. Not sure. Just have a feeling.

Mark: He’s Canadian. That’s pretty cool. That’s all we talked about lol.

Jessica: She’s a big Colby fan! All three seasons! That’s all I know

Gerome: I absolutely love this kid! I voted for him to win in Troy and it was very much deserved. I love talking to him about Zelda and he’s super nice. He will do anything to win a challenge and give it his all. It’s a suicide mission to take him to the end but I want an alliance with him because he’s loyal and awesome.

Angie H: We are friends. The problem is that RazvAngie Ohio is more dangerous in this game than RazvAngie MacNeil. If I can help it, I don’t want RazvAngie MacNeil (see below). If Razvan goes to the end with anyone, Angie H will vote for him to win, despite how well he played. That’s one vote and people could lose by one vote. That is a very dangerous yet true fact.

Vincent: I want a final 2 with this guy like a Canadian wants a warm winter.(so alot!!!)

Renee: She messaged me about having an alliance before I signed up for this game. She said she needed a good sidekick or right-hand man smile Cool!!! I signed up because of her smile I told her my top concern which was Razvan and she had a discussion with Umut. There’s an alliance between them smile I will have to be careful telling Renee stuff if Umut is on the same tribe.

Umut: I consider him a good friend. In games, wow. We are VERY close when it comes to gameplay. I use my strategy and it gets bounced back at me like a game of tennis. Umut has my picture in his room in Turkey and he’s throwing darts at it while laughing maniacally. He’s out for blood because of me blindsiding him a few months ago. I now know this. Time to be the hitman with him if we’re on the same tribe smile Only this time, I kill him before he has a chance to make jury *evil laugh*

Razvan: PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE DON’T LET ME BE ON THE SAME TRIBE AS HIM!!!!!!!!!!! Good thing he posted a pic in the org page and his bffs are all commenting on it to set themselves up as targetssmile This had led me to plant a bunch of seeds in the other people’s minds that perhaps there is an alliance of ….these people who are commenting and that maybe they are a little too friendly smile

Oh and I just received news that Razvan doesn’t trust me. Good intuition Razvan. You shouldn’t tongue

I vote for Umut and Clayton

Not only am I in a tribe with Amber I mean Razvan, but Umut has made a final 6 alliance thread for us already. There’s this word that’s coming to me off the top of my head. What is it? Oh yea

F—————————————————————-!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have come to the conclusion that it is safer to align with friends in this game. I realize that having a final 6 alliance already makes me fuzzy and feel safe. I know all the logic to this. I just don’t like Razvan lol.

But I retract my comment about Umut. I don’t think he’s laughing maniacally throwing darts at my picture in Turkey. But the guy just inherited a s—load of power and I realize he has more power than I do in this game based on people’s picking last night.
I think he finally realized that we are the same player and that I will go evil if he works against me. So he’s smiling in Turkey now doing a dance because of his power and stability in the game smile

*not doing a dance. He’s taking topless pictures of himself making funny faces*. The people I talk to on the internet…..lol

I just had Subway but I feel like something isn’t being fulfilled in my appetite. I highly recommend the cream of broccoli soup by the way. I’m still hungry. I couldn’t put my finger on it but I’ve figured it out. I crave blindside and evilness. You see, I’m doing this 12 step program on how to be a good girl ala hero in these games, but I keep having those villainous thoughts.
There’s something about a blindside, especially to someone who truly deserves it. There’s something about imagining the look on their face when their chance at the inactive org winners facebook group is taken away yet again…or another “win” to brag about. Yea, I don’t get it but people get cocky over their..umm.. online Survivor skills LOL
I don’t think I can be good. I enjoy being bad too much tongue With that wonderful little thing that I have about the jury and my new formed bonds with the guys Umut is purposely and obviously excluding and putting on the outs…hmmm… I want to be bad…

Sorry, I’m starving to blindside someone and I’m losing my focus. Once I get some evilness out of my system I will be able to properly chop stuff smile Give me a sec smile

Well, I missed a bunch of stuff while I was at a stagette but the consensus is that we’re using the penalty and Umut has discussed the rogue idol information with me. He has also discussed it with Razvan.
We skyped today and I looked him in the eyes and told him that I want Razvan and Angie H gone before the merge and my reasoning. He seems to agree and we seem to be on the same page.
This means that we’re sacrificing our numbers for powerful idols. Seems like a bargain and seems risky but….hmmm….

The more we go to tribal councils, the more I get to be evil and decimate so..hmmmm……

This is kind of off topic, but Umut is freaking hilarious. Call him a mastermind, badass player, whatever. He doesn’t get enough credit for being weird LOL. So I will document it. Umut is f—ing weird tongue

And that’s a compliment because normal is boring. That’s what Fido Dido says.

Darn it! We lost! Well…
-we have a chance at the rogue vote
-we have a chance at the penalty idol
-since I have immunity, I’m not going to end up voting myself out by gunning for Razvan
-It’s on like Donkey Kong Country 3 for the snes

Everyone is like “oh it’s heartbreaking voting for Razvan.”
Yea, I am very pumped to vote out Razvan. Like, there’s this happiness going all through my body.
I have no heart lol
I am the hitman!!!
*loads gun* boom!!!
hehehehhee I lied in my tc answer hehehee

Alright, it’s been a while since I’ve written a confessional with actual substance in it other than blah blah evil evil. For the record, I only enjoy being evil to people who were evil to me tongue There done. Glad I could clear that up.

Mark: I really hope that he gets to prove himself in the next challenge. I think that he’s really excited about this game and it’s a shame that he doesn’t know anyone coming into the game (which could cause him to be an early boot). He seems kind of quirky and Canadians gotta represent yo!

Brian: Same deal. I love that he goes beep beep hehe. He is very quiet but he’s very loyal to people, so I hear. I want to have connections with both of these guys strategically because our friends are really tight and these guys may be important in breaking up some alliances that don’t benefit me in this tribe.

Renee: She’s the reason I signed up to this game. I realize that she’s closer with Umut and I’m trying to decide if that will be my make or break. One thing is for certain with Renee: don’t mess with her!!! Seriously, if you tell her that you’re her top ally and then betray her, she will kick your ass in FTC. Umut has her thinking that she’s his top ally but he says he’s playing her. I could do one of two things 1) tell her the truth or 2) not tell her. It depends which makes more sense as the game goes on. I do trust her and want a final 4 with her.

Angie H: Angie H and I call ourselves Angies. Like a team! I have been saying that since before I even joined orgs. I also call us team ying yang as she’s good Angie and I’m evil Angie. I don’t want to see her at the merge because I know how she votes. She votes for whoever she loves more and not whoever played the best game. Of course, there are other jurors who could vote this way, I want to get rid of a future juror that I know votes that way before it happens to whoever is sitting in the final 2.

Vincent: Ahh, there’s a possibility that he’s sneaking around. Somehow, Razvan knew about our thread of me, Vincent, and Umut. Also, Razvan somehow knew that he was being blindsided…Vincent and Razvan are good friends. Also, Vincent is being very silent this game and if he doesn’t participate in the next challenge, I’ll have to blindside him because I now don’t trust him all that much. It sucks because I really like him as a person frown

Gerome: Awww little Gerome. I love him smile Hopefully we can go far into the game together smile

Umut: He asks me everyday if I’m going to blindside him. I think he was very nervous about me joining up with Razvan for this vote. PLEASE TRUST ME UMUT!!!! I’m sending signals to Turkey lol. I will trust him as long as he’s honest with me. If he tells one lie, well he has fleas and I have to vote him out lol. He is quite paranoid about this vote being for him.

Razvan: Too much bad blood to trust each other again in a game. I don’t think we’ll ever work together in a game again. I know that Razvan was messaging Brian to try to get a blindside together. Pair that up with Vincent’s shadiness…..ouf. If it’s not Razvan today….it’s someone completely random and someone who is more active than Razvan and that can hurt the tribe.

Hopefully we can get some wins in the next few challenges because I love playing these games and being Ulong’d would suck like a vaccuum.

MARK,

I’ll vote Clayton and Angie. only ones to speak to me in private so far.

Supplemental confessional: Apart from the clues, I’m glad I’m not a captain. Now I can watch who they pick and see who they’re pre-game alliances are with.

Further Confessional: So I’m picked last! I knew I was probably way behind on socializing, but not THAT far. Clearly there’s been some pre-game schmoozing going on. It’s clear Clayton and Angie McNeil have been casting the widest net.

First thing I did out of the gate was to go to Brian Griffin. Hooked up with him for an alliance. Seeing as we were last two picked, only made sense.

Can know all you want about Survivor, but here just throw that out. On the web it’s all anonymous, all people behind keyboards holding down 8 different private conversations at once.

I’ve got my two person alliance with Brian… I full well expect he’s already got one or two others already promised. I’m reaching out to Umut though… just to see what he offers. If he offers me a close alliance right off the bat, I’m pretty certain it’s bogus. I just want to know what kind of a player he is.

I tell Umut right off the bat that I’m a little nervous about being picked nearly last. All he can say is that ‘we are one unit’ and that ‘tribal unity is what we seek for’. That’s the kind of stuff you say to the guy you’re forced to have on your team.

I’m just going to do whatever he says for the time being. But based on the vote today, he’s already the one I’m looking at as a target.

So now I’ll tell everyone who was picked high, that I’m really worried about being picked second last, just to see what they give me in response.

Confessional Time:

It’s been kinda crazy the last two days. I’ll try to make it as clear as I can.

TC comes and I need to find an angle to play. So Angie MacNeil comes to me and says we have to vote Raz because his computer is broken. It sounds kind of weird to me since he’s still posting stuff from his phone, but she insists. I even try Gerome on her but she doesn’t budge. I ask who is supposed to be voting Brian, but she assures me no one is voting Brian. So now I’m expected to lie to the other 7 of us because…why?! I’m pretty certain at this point I’m being set up for something, or else she’s trying really hard to Boston Rob this game.

Now the NEXT thing she says to me is that if anyone asks, I have to say it’s Brian! WTF?! Now apparently, she then goes to Brian, tells him to also vote Raz and tell anyone who asks that he’s voting for ME! I’m not really sure what kind of a game she’s playing anymore, but it’s way too deceitful way too early. I say yes though, even if voting for Raz ‘because someone told me’ is about the lamest way to vote at Tribal Council. She insists me telling everyone it’s Brian is to keep either Brian or Raz from playing an immunity idol, and ‘idoling’ someone out, which confuses me a bit since I thought idols in this game just trigger re-votes.

Umut comes to me next and tells me that my name is ‘in play’ but that he wants to keep me because he’s good in challenges. He’s actually seems more straight talking than McNeil, but according to him, my name is up because I was picked last. I’m still not even sure WHY I was picked last but he says it’s to do with pre-game friendships. Based on what MacNeil says, I suggest going with Raz, even though at the back of my head it doesn’t make sense, despite his computer problem’s he’s been quite present.

So then finally, Vincent comes to me and Brian, with Angie O and Raz and spills the beans that myself and Brian are next after Raz, and that there was this big 7 person super alliance but that there is too much tension within it. He’s feeling we need to break it now before it’s too late and suggests the five of us go after the captain Umut.

I haven’t spoken to Vincent a lot, but his story DOES sound the most logical. MacNeil’s been playing me real hard and I can see right through it. I spoke it over with Brian in private, we’re worried that it’s going to cause tons of tension when we return to camp, but I’m thinking long term, I’d rather play with people who are telling it to me straight on day one. MacNeil’s being clever right from the start, and I feel if I stick by her I’m just letting her lead me right off a cliff whenever she chooses for me to go.

I figure if she comes to me afterwards and begs to know why I switched out from Raz, I’ll just tell it to her clean. I didn’t like the way she told people to say it’s me. I didn’t like being told to vote a certain way and then get told not to tell anyone. I don’t like her being the one to dictate my strategy.

And so after being the last two picked, it appears myself and Brian Griffin are the swing votes! How’s that for a power shift! It’s risky to make this power move, risky to stay with Umut and Angie, but I truly feel that if we stick by Umut and MacNiel, we’ll just be sitting ducks. Personally, I’m more nervous about MacNiel than Umut, but MacNiel has immunity, so…there.

So now I’m having to lie to MacNiel, lie to Umut. My goal of having tons of friends for an All Star season is kinda feeling dead, but we’ll see. Vincent seems a lot more clear cut to me than these other two.

Addendum Confessional! Okay so somebody snitched to MacNiel that the vote is Umut and I don’t know who.

Macniel is asking me why vote Umut. Power of the internet means I don’t have to respond if I don’t want to!

MATT,

OK, here goes!! Voting for Andrew MacAskill and Luke Everitt

So first confessional after the tribe picks!!! I am very happy with the tribe I am on! I think it’s a strong group. Not too many slackers in it though. I am very excited for the first challenge!! But also nervous. some good guys that i know and am working others. but I am very concerned about the alliance that appears to be on the other side. At least 5 of them , if not more, are from a previous game from what i can tell and they were the first picks for them so it’s obvious they are gonna hang together. we gotta dominate challenges so they have to pick each other apart. It would be really nice to have an idol – not sure how those are gonna play out! Unless you just wanna give me one now?? – that would be nice!

Anyway, glad i didnt end up on Upsa or I woulda been Upsaset! get it!! groan, that’s bad!! have a good night and see you tomorrow!

So check out our proposal in the Land tribe. If this is agreed to by majority of the tribe, we’d like to do this. My pre-selected number between 1 and 100 is 33.

**EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS PROPOSAL WAS REJECTED. PLAYERS WERE FORCED TO TRUST MATT THAT HE WOULD STICK BY THE NUMBER HE CHOSE.**
RAZ,

umut and macaskill for captains

i wish to penalize my Upsa tribe

RENEE,

My vote is for Raz Van Dan

Umut

UMUT,

I want to penalize my tribe wink

please confirm it

CONFESSIONALS OF SEASON 4

The opening challenge was awesome,i am always be happy for the fresh starts in this life.Once i saw my name came up multiple times for the election i was like ‘’wtf is happening’’ because in this game if you seen as a leader,captain,ringleader,puppetmaster etc. you are done.Nobody wants you around once the merge comes.So i am not %100 happy for this situation and i am concerned about being the captain of Upsa Tribe.
Anyways i think we made a strong and powerful tribe which consist of familiar faces from previous online games.We have AMN,Gerome,Razvan,Renee,Hancock,Vincent,Mark and Brian.On paper AMN and myself set up the new tribe so i think we are in control.To me i have to be careful about some powerful tandems just like AMN/Razvan..Hancock/Razvan..AMN/Gerome/Razvan..AMN/Vincent…I am trying to let them think i am the one who is ready to lead the challenges,be around for the entertainment and fun,be around to make this group of people unbeatable unit.
Let me tell you something Logan;clearly we have a 7 person alliance from the opening moment.Mark and Brian are the outsiders and other 7 people controlling the tribe,this is the fact.Before reward challenge i came to my alliance with an idea.Let me show you the conversation:

UMUT:I have talked with couple of tribe members and consensus is the same ; WE SHOULDN’T WANT TO LET BRIAN AND MARK THINKS THEY ARE OUTSIDERS.

So all we need two sacrifices for this challenge.Once Brian and Mark thinks they are in the middle of this tribe it will be good.We have to make sure those guys thinks they are a part of this tribe.

So who are the volunteers to be at the bottom of this challenge? Vincent and Gerome volunteerly wanted to be at the bottom.So all we need to cut their tiles first.Once Gerome and Vincent guarenteed to stand at the bottom we can choose Brian and Mark.

It’s not important who will have the immunity but Mark/Brian.It’s up to you.Renee,MacNeil,Hancock,Razvan whatever..

The possible scenerio for this challenge ;

9-Vincent
8-Gerome
7-Mark
6-Briand
5-Umut
4-Raz
3-Hancock
2-Renee
1-MacNeil

Doesn’t matter who will win between us.The important points are;

1-We have to make sure Gerome and Vincent at the bottom,
2-We have to be sure Mark and Brian in the middle of this list.

GEROME:Let’s do this.
AMN:It’s brilliant.
RENEE:Awesome..Love this tribe.
VINCENT:Sounds like a plan.

Plan worked perfectly and Vincent get the Mutiny Trigger while AMN won the necklace.Right now Brian or Mark can’t decide to mutiny at least an unexpected attemption from the other tribe.Actually i don’t wanna seen around with those ideas because i don’t wanna seen as a threat early in this game but those guys knows my game profile so no need to hide about it.
Again for the second challenge i have tried to run the things for my tribe’s favor and i believe i did.We will see what will happen at the end of the challenge but if we lose it’s not a problem cos i want that damn Rogue Idol thing.If we go to TC two times before Land Tribe i am sure i’ll have that freakin idol.So i need to keep that balance ;i want that idol but i don’t wana Ulonge’d from Land Tribe.
With that first confessional is officially over.

**EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS IS UMUT’S GUESS FOR THE TIEBREAKER**

My guess is 2 hours.I think it took 2 hours for them.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #1

(ANGIE)-(BRIAN)-(GEROME)-(*MACNEIL*)-(MARK)-(RAZ)-(RENEE)-(UMUT)-(VINCENT)

Within each of the brackets is your name. As long as your name is still in the brackets. Once your name is removed, so are you. Which will be the case for one of you this weekend.

You MUST answer your TC questions for your vote to count.

Note the asterisks around Macneil’s name. That is to indicate she has immunity from this TC.

ANGIE,

1. You were picked near the end of the tribe pick ’em. Does that concern you at all heading into this Tribal Council?

I am not concerned at all about when i was picked.

2. What criteria do you look for to vote someone out in a tribe that has been very active?

I just go by how much i feel i can trust each person and go from there.

BRIAN,

1. I’m gathering it must be tough only three days in. All of you seem to be posting in the group, all of you showed up to Opening Day, and the challenge was done within two hours. What does it take for someone to stand out as being a target for this round?

Yeah its tough we have all been getting along great and everyone has been active. At this point it comes down to who we can afford to lose and stay strong. We need a strong tribe going forward.

2. Why do you think both tribes picked the people that they did?

I think the people picked either who they know or who they have played with and know how they play. I know very few people in this game and was almost picked last but I hope to show my tribe what I can bring to the team.

GEROME,

1. You were one of only four people to not show up to the Opening Day challenge. Granted, you were only ten minutes late. Do you think those four wll automatically be considered inactives?

No we’re not inactives, I’m just 10 minutes late. The real actives and inactives will be revealed these coming days.

2. A lot of items were awarded in the first two individual challenges. How do you think that will affect the game?

They will have great impact in the game, it can turn the game upside down if used wisely.

MACNEIL,

1. You have immunity. How do you think you would have acted differently if you didn’t possess individual immunity?

I wouldn’t have acted any differently whether I had immunity or not. I am quite vocal when it comes to my opinion and what can make a stronger Upsa. I have always been vocal in games because I am a strong believer in tribal unity and keeping people around who are willing to work on challenges so we don’t have to keep coming back here.

2. You were very close to being a captain as well as being the immunity winner. Do you think you’ll regret coming out so strong?

I never play a silent game and if that’s my downfall, so be it. I would rather lose being strong than to win by being weak or silent. Go big or go home!

MARK,

1. Last one picked. Yet you’ve been perhaps the most active player here. What is it that the rest of your tribe is missing about you?

A: It’s hard because I have no idea what people were using as the criteria for picking. My biggest fear is that there were already pre-game alliances setup just after the cast was announced. It’s also possible that, like in politics, when people have no idea who to vote for, they just for the first or last name on the ballot! My name falls in the middle, so it could just be that! I really won’t know for sure though until we progress into the game.
As for what they’re missing, I know (think?) that I’m pretty funny, and a practical thinker. I don’t know how to prove that before the game starts, especially if not a single person here knows me prior to the game.

2. Do you think a loss within the first three is enough time for someone to recover from first impressions?

A: Oh of course. When we all started we were just names on a list. This isn’t like real Survivor where you can size up someone’s physique and make a snap judgement based on that. I’m not even sure what first impression I made (other then perhaps a bit of a smart ass?). I’ve reached out to people but I really won’t know for sure how genuine the connections are until the first votes are read. I know it’s possible to recover, so all I can do is try.

RAZ,

1. Even if the tribe performed better than Land, you could still potentially lose because of penalty idols. Is there always this uneasiness after each challenge because you’ll never know who or how many requested the penalty idol?

he rules are same for both tribes
if ppl in upsa tribe claimed the penalty idol i’m sure that so did land’s ppl
i am pretty sure that this penalty idol is a team idol and not to be found by one and only player. A player can/will claim it for 2 reasons: a) to have it

b) another player to not have it
doesn’t really matter who claim it cus

2. Do you think tight sub-alliances have already formed?

*and here comes answer for 2nd question u had for me*

there are alliances
not sure how tight bc it’s only day 3 and things that will happen can/will change the dynamics

RENEE,

1. You were very close to winning immunity for yourself against Macneil. Do you feel that you really needed it?

I will ALWAYS feel like I need/want immunity going into ANY tribal Council. I know unless you are wearing that necklace you are never completely safe. I hope I will live to see another day. I’m having so much fun playing this game.

2. Has there been as much distrust formed as there has been trust?

I think there is a lot of both floating around in the air. This is the moment you really learn about the people you are playing with. You have to trust someone and hope for the best. The dynamics of trust are just now beginning to form so anything can happen.

UMUT,

1. You won the election. None of the other seventeen had more votes than you. Do you think that puts Upsa at a bigger advantage than Land because more people wanted you to lead rather than Clayton?

I don’t think that it’s a big advantage when you think we need to win some challenges.Without winning challenges numbers are nothing.

2. How much of an impact do you think the tribe picks will make on the overall outcome of the game?

I think it will make big impact both physically,mentally and strategically.The question is which tribe will become a strong group which tribe will not.Next couple of days will show us who made the right choices who made the wrong.

VINCENT,

1. You were first out of the Coconut Chop but were given the Mutiny Trigger. How do you think others perceive how will you use it in the future?

Of course, everyone’s gonna be puzzled on how i’m using the trigger, even myself, i’m puzzled on when and how i’m gonna use it. At this point i may not be that 100% confident with my situation but i’m trying to pull it off with the trigger. After all, not everyone is safe every tribal council, unless, you get immunity.

2. Are there any areas where this tribe needs to improve?

Hmmm. To be honest I think I haven’t seen any flaws yet in the tribe, if you ask me, 2-hours is a good time to clock in the answer especially i’m not quite familiar with encryption based challenges (if your question is addressed on the first challenge) I got to say though, the camp is a bit dirty and people are getting used to it, so, a little more elevation from the land in case of flood, and a little cooperation from everyone would greatly help Upsa in the long run.

Okay, when you vote privately please do so in the following format:

VOTE: (Logan)

REASON: I don’t have a very good reason, to be honest. It’s only day three. Maybe because the deadline for this vote will be 36 hours due to being Thanksgiving? I’m a rather impatient fellow, if I must admit.

Okay, Macneil is wearing individual immunity. You cannot vote for Macneil. Everybody else is fair game. Between now and 1:30pm eastern Monday, it is time to vote. Upsa tribe, you’re up.

TRIBAL COUNCIL VOTING

ANGIE,

Vote: Umut Reason: An alliance was formed that decided he was a strong player with an equally strong ally that we felt was needed to break up to ensure our futures in the game. wink

Sorry i meant Vote: (Umut) oops

BRIAN,

vote: Umut

reason: He’s the leader of the other alliance in the tribe and Im sticking with my alliance.

GEROME,

My Vote: Razvan

Reason: Sorry my friend.. you should have listened to the plan.. it’s not the right time to get wild. It’s a tribe decision.. Im really sorry frown

MACNEIL,

My vote is for RAZVAN DRAGU
Razvan, I have been waiting a freaking long time for this moment!!! We’ll say Troy when you betrayed me? Troy when you bragged about outlasting me? SI when you bragged about beating me in the final two and how you were the “mastermind” of that whole season when I pretty much played that game for you? Um, Supacoowacky when you said “Angie, why would I hold a grudge against you? I outlasted you in both the games.” Perhaps you are researching how to be a big strategic player by watching this Ben guy on Lost. But please please please….learn the fundamentals of Survivor first because they are the building blocks to being a great player.
Now I’m going to have some Clam Chowder. Hasta la vista baby! *shoots gun and then blows on it*

Ugh, now I’m feeling kind of bad. It’s the right thing to do but I do care about his feelings. I am not looking forward to picturing the look on his face when he gets blindsided. He was so excited to play this game and he’s messaging me and ugh. Him and I have a history and despite the fact that he drove me crazy in these games and really pissed me off lol..I care….ok… I don’t know if I’m a real villain then lol

hmm had a moment where I was human for a bit. I don’t feel bad anymore lol. Frig, what was that? tongue

MARK,

Vote Time:

Umut

I know you said you’d look out for me, but I could tell I was near the end of a really long list. This vote really should go to someone else who’s been even more deceitful, but she’s got immunity, so, it has to be you.

RAZ,

my vote goes to Umut bc he tries to blindside me

RENEE,

VOTE: (Raz Van Dan)

REASON: The majority seems to think he is playing his own game. That we might have incurred a penalty because he tried to get the idol as well as another player – that we all agreed could get it for the tribe. He hasn’t tried to strategize with me at all so I don’t know where his head is at. it’s a shame because I really wanted to play this game with him.

UMUT,

Vote:Renee.

Reason:I want that Rogue Idol.

I want to switch my vote.I can do it once again if it’s necessary.

Vote:Razvan

Reason:He did a big mistake with penalize us.We all agreed to penalized with only one person for tribe favor but he is playing his own game.Sorry Raz!

VINCENT,

VOTE: (Raz)

REASON: I don’t have a very good reason, to be honest. It’s only day three. Maybe because the deadline for this vote will be 36 hours due to being Thanksgiving? I’m a rather impatient fellow, if I must admit.

Kidding. Nothing personal bro. This is strictly BAU. One of the things I hate in playing orgs are pre-game alliances, unfortunately Macneil’s alliance has better grip with everyone so you know me, go with the flow. I like you and you’re a possible jury vote but at this point in time, i’m in no good position to help you from getting BOOM BOOM POW. i might be following you soon bro. i love you Raz. be well.

I’m officially changing it. I’m voting Umut. Same reason. But not really. I don’t want to be a puppet in some pre-game alliance. Again, sorry I like you a lot but I’d rather see myself working with raz. This is strictly BAU.

RAZ: umut is the most sportman player i ever played with. I love his style.
ME: (How’d I forget to post this?)

Well, there is one very clear message that was delivered this Tribal Council: You do not need a leader.

In addition, the vote was very split. I’m curious to see how a split tribe without a leader will play out. I’m sure you are as well.

UMUT EXIT INTERVIEW

You’re first out. That’s rough. I s’pose it’s time to talk about it.

1. Let’s go back to season 3. You applied the day after applications closed. In fact, you were set up to be an alternate. On top of that, you were extremely close to replacing Nick (the guy who quit halfway through the first round). How well do you think you would have done in season 3? Other than “I would’ve lasted longer there than I did here”.

Every season is different;the stories are different,the actors are different,the conditions are different.It’s very hard question Logan cos we cannot know the scenerios other than only imagine it.

2. You were first out of this game. Would you have preferred to be on this season anyway compared to season 3?

I am glad i have played in Season 4 when you think so many quitters and dead weights were around in Season III.Our season have too many great players so it was a bless for me cos i love and respect this game and all the way prefer to play with strong players.

3. Now to the first change for this season–cast list being released before the Opening Day challenge. What are the interactions you had before the Opening Day challenge with the other players?

That was great Logan.When i first look at the cast i knew a huge battle was beginning.I will always remember the opening day of this season,so many messages flied around and we spent 3 or 4 great hours at the very beginning.

4. Now to the opening challenge. You received five votes to be captain. More votes than anyone. You put the tribe together. You had the info regarding the rogue idol. What was the strategy behind who you picked to join your tribe?

I wanted to gather familiar faces around me and tried to make together those people whom i know so i thought i could have stayed to the merge at least with that circumstances.

5. Onto the tribal immunity challenge. The tiebreaker came down to making a guess against Clayton from the other tribe. Did the rest of the tribe blame you for losing the challenge at all?

Nobody blamed me.It was not the reason of my departure.I did the most work at that challenge,deshiphered the note and tried to finish the job.When you look at what i did at challenge you can easily realize that shouldn’t be the reason.

6. Do you think the tiebreaker was an overall fair way to break the tie in the challenge?

I think you should have picked two captains (Clayton and me) after the challenge and should have gave us an individual puzzle for saving our tribe.I think that was the fair way than guess something about timing.You know everybody have friends from the opposite tribes.So people can cheat if you use those type of tie-breakers.

7. You are captain of the tribe. . .and choose to penalize ’em yourself. Why did you penalize your own tribe so early in the game?

That was a group decision.From day 1 Mark and Brian were outsideers on paper.Other 7 people decided to penalize tribe by only one person and they picked me (on paper).That way if we could have found the penalty idol we could have use it against the other tribe after merge.So that was not my individual decision.I did nothing individual and nothing wrong to my tribe.The thing is we had a cancer (Razvan) in our tribe and we had a guy who is doing some illogical moves by remote control (Vincent).Once Razvan tried to penalize us by his individual decision we lost the challenge,it caused the division and people became untrusthworthy and concerned with each other.

8. However you don’t get the idol. Who do you think was the other person requested the penalty idol? And how did that impact what went on the camp?

As i said to you before Razvan is the other person who penalized us,he told me after the challenge and it caused division.One people suggested Razvan’s name to me because of personal reasons after the challenge.At first i didn’t wanted to target Razvan but when i realized he is doing individual moves against tribe i agreed that person about Razvan vote.I wanted to make tribe strong,that’s it,nothing personal,Razvan is my friend and i invited him to play in Season 4 but when it comes down to logic i can sacrifice everybody.This is how i am in real life also.On the other hand i have no idea another person penalized us or not.

9. And then you were voted off. Did you have any sense you’d be eliminated? Or how close the vote would end up being?

I understood it was me last day.I even knew it was 5-4.I knew Vincent was after me and i knew Razvan and Vincent offered something to Brian and Mark.Once i realized Brian is answering to me with few words i realized it was me who is going home.I have enough experience to figure out the stuff.

10. For the third season in the history of the series, the captain is voted out at their first Tribal Council. Why do you think captains are so vulnerable in this game?

I have no clue about the other captains but i did some mistakes in Season 4.I offered to Gerome Razvan’s name and i offered to Renee Hancock&Vincent’s name eventhough i knew his best friend doesn’t like me.I wanted to play fresh game cos i hate immortal alliances and playing with same characters.I like the new adventures but people always holding grudges.I don’t care,this is not my style,i don’t hold grudges or never playing with my feelings.Also i was the person who created 7 person alliance against Brian and Mark.So you can see i did so many mistakes but i did nothing wrong to anybody.

11. Who do you think is going to be voted out next? Who do you want out next? Who do you think would win? Who do you want to win?

If were the person who lead the majority in Upsa i would like to vote Macneil,Gerome or Renee out but in fact Razvan will do unpredictable and illogical moves,i guarantee you this lol I want Razvan and Vincent next ;Razvan destroyed Upsa tribe with penalize us,on the other hand Vincent voted me because of personal reasons.I have no ugly words to Hancock/Mark/Brian (people voted me out) or MacNeill/Renee/Gerome (supported me in our tribe). I want either Renee,MacNeill or Gerome win this season and best of luck to them.Other hand i have serious favorite people like Matt Hood,Heeral and Clayton.Can’t wait to see what will happen next.

12. If you have any other thoughts, please share.

I want to say ‘’thank you’’ once again.With one week play i became a fan of your game and it’s structure.I love the substructure of your game,you are doing great job.I fell in love the way you get the Penalty idol and Rogue Idol,it’s i think first in all series of online games.I am so happy to play in Season 4 and best of luck to you for your hosting career.

LISTER (SCWL 2):

1. Umut Gundogdu (Upsa)
“Umut is a strong and aggressive player. I see him grabbing players together to form a strong alliance day 1. Therese several people on this tribe that he played against in Survivor Solomon Islands. He’s going to grab Angie H right off the bat and I think he’ll go for Razvan as well. The power on this tribe is going to revolve around Umut at least in the beginning on this tribe unless the outlying players can see the danger that’s coming and pull off a blindside.”

2. Heeral Desai (Land)
“Like Umut, Heeral is a very strong player. Very social and very strategic she is one of the most dangerous players in this game. The power on the Land tribe is going to revolve around her and she will be their queen.”

3. Ryan Huckla (Land)
“I see Ryan as being Heeral’s number 1 ally and together they are going to run the ship.”

4. Vincent Chavarria (Upsa)
“While I’m not sure where in the alliance dynamic Vincent will fall on Upsa, I see him as a very social player and no matter what alliance becomes dominant on this tribe he will be a part of it. Maybe not a key integral part, but he will be there. Vincent is not going home first.”

5. Gerome Latumbo (Upsa)
“Ah Gerome, winner of SurviveWar: Troy. This guy is definitely a strong social player and is close friends with fellow tribemates Razvan. If he and Raz form a two-some and get pulled in with Umut I could see Gerome being in this game for the long haul.”

6. Luke Everitt (Land)
“I don’t really know Luke all that especially well but I get a good vibe from him. He’s been playing orgs for a while now and I think he’s got a level head on his shoulder and that could help him get far in the game.”

7. Matt Hood (Land)
“Matt won his first three orgs, so he’s already got that reputation as a strong and deadly player. I’m not aware of him losing a final vote. He’s a very loyal player and sticks to his alliance so if the power base on Land knows this they can easily scoop him up and then dump him once he’s no longer needed.”

8. Renee Higley (Upsa)
“Renee is a player who I should know better, but I don’t. I see her as another social player who is going to go with the flow these first couple rounds of the game and then once she gets a feel for the situation and what’s happening all around her then she will make her move.”

9. Andrew MacAskill (Land)
“Andrew! This guy is an awesome player. He doesn’t play very many orgs so he doesn’t know a lot of people which could hurt him but he is not only a strong social player but a great strategic player and a bit of a challenge whore. He’s a triple threat in my mind and if he can make it through the first few rounds and especially if he makes it to the merge then all the other players better look out.”

10. Angie Hancock (Upsa)
“I’m pretty sure Angie H and Umut are going to join up together in this game although of the two I think Angie H is the weaker half of this pair. Granted, I don’t really know her that well so it’s all speculation but I don’t get as good a feel from her as I do from Umut.

11. Clayton Spivey (Land)
“I only know Clayton from his run in The Shot 4 so it’s hard for me to get a good read on him and what I’m getting are mixed signals. He could go early, or he could go far. Other than that. Hard to say just yet.

12. Angie MacNeil (Upsa)
“Angie M is another very strong and VERY deadly player. She’s honest and loyal, but if someone she showed loyalty to starts to talk about betraying her they better look out because the claws are coming out! I am worried about her though. In Solomon Islands she took out Umut and from what I understand he didn’t like that too much. Will Umut hold a grudge and vote out Angie M first? Will Angie M make the first strike against him? Or maybe the two of them will reconcile and work together.

13. Anne Curtis (Land)
“I’ve only seen Anne in two games and she really doesn’t come off as a strong player to me. She’s loyal yes, but what besides loyalty can she offer? If she loses a challenge for the Land tribe, loyalty be damned she’ll be gone.”

14. Brian Griffin (Land)
“I’ve seen Brian in a few games and I just do not see him as a strong player. I’ve seen him complain in the bitch group about challenges before and I know Logan’s challenges and be quite the mindscrew and are very difficult and Brian could have some trouble. He’s made it to FTCs before and each time lost and from what I saw I believe it was from pissing other players off and he didn’t understand that. Will Brian learn from his past or is he deemed to repeat his failures?

15. Jessica Nicole (Land)
“I have no clue who the hell this girl is. SHe’s got more orgers than just this cast on her friends list so this might not be her first game but I think she’s still a relatively new player. For all I know of course she might be a really old-school player who just came back. Hell if I know! She’s an intern for Rob Has A Podcast so she definitely knows the game, but beings as I don’t know her I can’t rank her that well so to the bottom she goes.”

16. Razvan Dragu (Upsa)
“If Angie M can pull off a blindside on Upsa against one of Umut’s allies it will be Razvan she targets. Count on it. Razvan and Angie M were close back in Troy and Solomon Islands but since then they have fallen apart. No way in hell these two are going to work together again and if they become the final two together I will order a plate of 10 tarantulas and film myself eating the nasty things. That’s how confident I am.”

17. Jason Fyke (Land)
“I like Jason, he’s a good kid but I just don’t see him surviving long on this tribe. First boot? Likely. He recently got taken out by Heeral in another game and had made a comment that if he survived the vote he would be coming right after her. If he carries this grudge forward into this game and targets Heeral and she learns of it, he’s going to be gone faster than you can say Wal-Mart.”

18. Mark Kalzer (Upsa)
“Like Jason, Mark is my first boot pick from the Upsa tribe. This guy is as green as lettuce, at least when it comes to Facebook orgs. Nobody knows him and that could be an easy reason for why he’s gone. In past SupaCooWacky games the newbies have done very well but in a tribe of people that all know each other I’m not so sure that will happen this time for Mark.

Pre-Season pick to win – Luke Everitt

PAST WINNERS CAST ASSESSMENT

MERVIN–WINNER OF SCWL 1:

UMUT GUNDOGDU- Umut is a very strong player. Very well rounded and is not afraid to have bloods in his hand. It also help that Umut is a banker (or works on a bank) because it’s a dog eat dog world and you have to learn to get ahead with everyone.

ANGIE MACNEIL- Macneil is a very social player and her strength is pulling on everyone’s heart strings then ready to stick a knife when she needs to. I see her working with Gerome, Umut and Renee. Gerome is her friend and that’s one person she trust even before this game started. She and Umut would possibly align just to clear up their past issues.

GEROME LATUMBO- Gerome plays a very quiet game. Not the leader and mostly a follower. But this strategy helps him from having no blood in his hands and gaining respect from the jury. I believe she will be Angie’s number 1 or for a certain time.

RAZ VAN DAN- Razvan have one powerful weapon in this game – sympathy. He knows how to connect with people and people feel bad whenever he is out of the loop or they contemplate of getting rid of him. Keep him around for one more round, and another round and another round, then he is going near the end, if not win in the end.

RENEE HIGLEY- Renee have a strong personality. It’s either you are with her or against her. Her biggest asset in this game is the fact that nobody knows her too well and she seldom tries to be the center of attention. She just plays a quiet game and that could be deadly because no one sees her as a threat.

VINCENT CHAVARRIA- Vincent is more of a laid back player. He will go with the majority and find a strong core alliance but not leading them but just going with the majority’s decision. Vincent is a very likeable person and easy to get along with. Vincent’s weakness is that he only watched 2-3 survivor seasons and that lack of knowledge is a huge disadvantage to him.

ANGIE HANCOCK- Angie Hancock have played atleast 4-5 survivor games and I noticed she barely makes any splash or mark in the game but she makes it really far. If she makes it to the merge, she’s bound to go far because strong personalities (or egos) will collide and she will be on the corner and let them duke it out.

BRIAN GRIFFIN- I also see Brian playing a lot game. Makes it really far,sometimes makes it to the end but doesn’t win.

MARK KALZER – Anonymous

LAND:

CLAYTON SPIVEY- Clayton is a savvy player. He knows how to play a very under radar game. I see people on his tribe that he have good relationship like Jessica, Heeral and Anne. Again I will not be surprised if this 4 teams up and make an alliance.

JESSICA NICOLE- Jessica is a sweet girl. Staying away from confrontation and conflict, will be her strategy. She will be more of a team player rather than a leader.

HEERAL DESAI- Heeral is the latest Noob Queen. She haven’t playing for long but she have been winning games after games. Heeral is gonna lie, gonna backstab, gonna betray. She will play the game HARDCORE.

ANNE CURTIS- Anne is a little spaced out which make her a little bit hard to talk too. But Anne is a nice girl ( but in the world of Survivor, the nice ones get picked on first).

MATT HOOD- Matt is making waves also by wining the games he played. I do not have much information about him.

ANDREW MACASKILL- Andrew played in Survivor Facebook 4. He was voted out too early. And he haven’t played org that much so there’s not much information about him except he will possibly make an alliance with Jason Fyke that also played in Survivor Facebook too.

LUKE EVERITT- Luke seems a nice guy. He played several games already, specially Survivor Whisper’s games. I haven’t seen him making it far in any games though.

RYAN HUCKLA-Sorry no info

JASON FYKE- I see Jason in orgs once in a while. I first remember him playing in PJsurvivor Fans vs Favorites where I saw him having an argument with Shyam Sundar and called him “social game like a jelly fish”. Jason seems very abrasive and it could haunt him in this game where he could get over bearing with his tribemates or alliance.

KIM–WINNER OF SCWL 3:

VINCENT CHAVARRIA-
The jury thread-jacker extraordinaire. I can’t even tell you how I know Vincent, I have never played a game with him but he appears to be extremely sharp and quick, and everyone seems to like him. Prime recipe for being a villain, but I think he is too nice of a guy. Hopefully his personality and brain will get him in a good spot and he’ll make it well past merge.

HEERAL DESAI-
!!!! Heeral will be quite a force in this game if no one picks up on it early. She has a very convincing way with words. She is a thinker. I have no doubt that she will fight to the death the whole time she is playing. Im thinking Heeral should end up in the upper final portion of this game.

LUKE EVERITT-
Luke is quiet, and a very decent guy. I’ve played quite a few games with him and his being antisocial is obviously always his downfall. I think that his problem is going to be his time difference and his talking to only his alliance. Maybe he’ll put more effort into this game and get chatty, if he does he would probably surprise himself.

JASON FYKE-
LOLOL I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT HE DOES!!!! My SF family member. Many games I have had with Fyke. To this day I can never determine what he is thinking nor what he is going to do. He does things that are shocking even to me. If he can keep a grip on his mouth and his behavior (which is asking the impossible) he will make it far, believe me he can WORK a game.

BRIAN GRIFFIN-
Let’s see….This guy is amazingly sharp. I think I have probably been more pissed off at Brian as much as I have any other person in the whole ORG community. Why? He kicks my butt almost every game I’m in with him. LOL He is very resourceful and seems to alway find a majority early on. Very seldom when I’ve watched games have I not seen him in the finals. I would be very surprised to not see him in the finals here unless he gets attacked by the SW alliance.

UMUT GUNDOGDU-
Deadly. A friendly face, a warm smile, a 10 inch blade ready to slice your juglar. That’s it.

ANGIE HANCOCK-
It always seems like Angie gets in a majority alliance, stays quiet and makes it pretty far. I would love to see her, just one time stand up and get crazy. She might be kept in for a bit for loyalty but given the amount of fighters in this cast I’m not so sure that’s gonna be the case this season.

RENEE HIGLEY-
Aside from a game where Renee had to DOR I’ve never had the pleasure of playing with her. We almost had a good alliance one game and she seemed to be a strong, hyped competitor. I have high hopes that she will see well past merge.

MATT HOOD-
The only person I have ever known, in my life, to play an honest game….. and win. Proof that it can happen. Matt is very convincing adapts well to merges, tribal switching, calming down panicky tribe members and is a beast at difficult challenges. *glares at Logan. I will be very shocked beyond belief if he is not in the final two of this game.

RYAN HUCKLA-
?

MARK KALZER-
?

GEROME LATUMBO-
From what I recall playing with Gerome, he seemed to be really strong socially he was then traded off to another tribe. I have nothing else here.

ANDREW MACASKILL-
Clever and spunky! Another piece of the SF family that is a huge personality. Andrew is very alliance driven and ready to take on challenges right NOW!! There isn’t a whole heck of a lot he can’t do aside from being understood when he speaks. Thank gahd for text. Andrew will for sure have longevity in this game if he has a good pack. His only downfall I would say is maybe being too trusting.

ANGIE MACNEIL-
Curious to see how far a girl can get with out love carrying her.

JESSICA NICOLE-
?

CLAYTON SPIVEY- I kind of know who Clayton is, but I have never played a game with him.

RAZ VAN DAN-
Wondering what the world of Raz will think when someone outside of his clique doesn’t especially care for his cocky dominating attitude. I know what I would do, I do wonder what mainstream org folks will do. Who the hell enjoys Hitler? I see him as an early boot if he is not with his normal crowd. If he, is they will either let him take control or get smart and get him out. I have to say I’m curious.
