JEREMY ON NOBODY’S RADAR–BOUND TO WIN

It’s the biggest observation made at the start of the round. He has an idol. Nobody thinks he has it. He isn’t on the bottom of his tribe, but isn’t standing out as a leader or major threat. Given Daln’s current lead, I assessed Jeremy to have the greatest chance of winning at this point.

MERGE BOUND TO BE HERE

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again–Every single egg and even a chicken was put into a basket that the players would vote to merge. Maybe not Spau, but I thought Daln definitely would. I almost put in a trick that the exact reverse would happen regardless of how they voted prior to the start of the season to mimic the real Survivor 5, but then I decided that was really stupid.

Imagine if I went through with that? I’d look like an idiot. So let’s get to the merge now, eh?

THEN THE SHOCKER–WHY NO MERGE? DALN AIMING FOR SWEEP AND SPAU WANTING TO CLOSE THE GAP. . .

In the words of Stacey Powell, “BLAM!”

This alone made it the craziest pre-merge of SCWL history. And this is after SCWL 5 already took the title for craziest pre-merge. Is this game ever going to take a break? What was unbelievable is that the vote was unanimous. Those day 1 rewards to have extra votes for the merger meant nothing.

Daln didn’t merge because they were riding a three round winning streak. Danial, Branden, Chance, and Albee have all been eliminated in a row from Spau. Spau suffers from two more losses and their tribe is down to zero, and two of its members would be on MGI.

I won’t give it away, but I had a weird twist planned if a tribe fell to zero members before the merge because their only members are on MGI. Be thankful I never used it.

Spau meanwhile doesn’t want to merge because this is their chance to close the gap in numbers. Two losses by Daln and we could have a whole new game. I’ll touch upon it momentarily, but I thought one person in particular would be eliminated this round no matter what.

DALN LOOKING TO THROW A CHALLENGE?

That thought entered my mind. They have seven members against four. They know a minimum of one idol is in their possession. So Spau could only get it down to 5-4 in worst case scenario. Everything was indeed coming up Milhouse for the Daln tribe. They should feel secure. I wouldn’t be surprised if they wanted to throw it just to dump the loser from MGI or boot Candy to ensure no potential wildcards could ever enter the equation.

CANDY BUMMED TO SIT OUT

After leading her new tribe to two victories, Candy must now sit out per the “once it is no longer to avoid sitting out people in back-to-back challenges, you must no longer have someone play in back-to-back challenges”.

In Survivor this has pretty much only been seen in Survivor: Palau. It’s one of those obscure rules that most people forget about.

Knowing she could still very well go next, I imagine Candy did not leaving her fate in the hands of others. This could very well be her third must-win situation in a row. If they lose, Candy better hope the person coming from MGI is not holding an idol.

7-2-2 ARE VERY WEIRD NUMBERS TO DEAL WITH

It makes the tribe chats seem off. Why is there seven in one camp but four people split between two others?

NAOMI MUST PRAY DALN WINS THE CHALLENGE OR SHE IS SCREWED

Considering Christian’s success in challenges so far, and the fact he has the idol, I thought Naomi was dead no matter what this round. She either heads to Tribal Council with Brenda and Jason or she heads to Tribal Council with all of Daln.

What’s worse is that Naomi claims Jeremy’s fake idol this round. She completed both puzzles and her mission. I have a feeling she assumed this was a fake idol though. If she thought it was real, she may try to “trick” Daln into voting for her and end up being blindsided because of her own fake idol.

There just didn’t seem to be many scenarios where Naomi survives this round.

CHRISTIAN’S IDOL PLAY IS RIDICULOUSLY CLOSE TO HAPPENING

But what if Christian does throw it? He’s probably playing the dang idol no matter what, and I bet he receives the most votes regardless if he joins Spau or Daln. If he heads to Daln, he will end up looking like a genius.

IF CHRISTIAN PLAYS AN IDOL, IT WILL BE MAKE OR BREAK FOR CANDY

And if this happens, well, Candy better be smart enough to throw her vote away. She must be thinking that if Christian, Brenda, Naomi, or Jason have the Spau idol that they will give it to whoever joins the Daln tribe at the next Tribal Council.

Unless Candy doesn’t re-read my hidden immunity idol rules, of course. Then she may be dead in the water more so than any other player.

IF CANDY SURVIVES TO MERGE, I THINK SHE’LL MAKE IT TO 2ND

It seems like she’d be the perfect person to try and take to the end at this point. Now that the most controversial players are gone, there are no players who fit the goat criteria. Candy may very well be dragged to Final Two because she is guaranteed to not receive four out of nine jury votes thanks to Spau.

WORDSMITH CHALLENGE THAT FAILED MISERABLY IN SCWL 3 IS REPLAYED AND REVAMPED HERE–PLAY TO THREE POINTS

As with SCWL 4, I have made multiple attempts to re-do challenges that fell apart in SCWL 3. We played this challenge specifically in SCWL 3 right before the merge.

However, because I was too afraid of the challenge going on for too many days in SCWL 3, I made everybody play to one point. Once somebody scored a point and won the heat, their opponent would complain that they didn’t understand the challenge until after the point was scored.

In addition, we had 1 vs. 1 heats in SCWL 3. So if one person didn’t know what they were doing, there is nobody in the chat room to ask for help.

This season I made it 2 vs. 2 heats and we played to three points. It just so happened that there was only two people left on Spau, thus leaving us with only one heat to play out.

The challenge this time around lasted a bit longer than I liked–roughly four days. Unlike Quoridor, I made everyone go in a 4-person order for the first three days. It wasn’t until the last day that I reinstated the Quoridor style rules and let either person from the pair make a move.

Regardless of this initial error, it went ten times smoother (east side?) than the challenge did in SCWL 3. Of course, everything since SCWL 3 has gone ten times smoother than that season.

BRENDA MUST LEAD THE CHARGE YET AGAIN–SPAU MAY FALL DOWN TO ZERO MEMBERS IF BRENDA CANNOT MOUNT A COUNTER-ATTACK

Jason was never optimistic during this challenge. From my point of view, the entire fate of the Spau tribe avoiding a fall to zero members was in Brenda’s hands. She needs to win the Wordsmith challenge or she will be put in the toughest position of any player all season.

WILL NAOMI REALLY KEEP JASON IF THEY LOSE? DOES IT MATTER?

Or would Naomi and Jason stick together? It seemed like these two were tighter with each other rather than Brenda. But could they afford to kick out Brenda, have Naomi sent back to MGI, and leave Jason all alone to do an immunity challenge? Again, I was really interested in the variables regarding a Spau vote.

But then again Spau losing means they will be dead anyway.

I THINK NAOMI COULD WIN IF SHE CAN GET IN WITH MORAY TO FORM A MAJORITY, OTHERWISE THIS IS GLO’S GAME TO WIN

How could I forget the Naomi-Moray relationship? Could Naomi, Moray, Candy, and perhaps Tyler come together? Gloria is standing out as a major target at the moment.Avoiding a merge left a high probability that something funky could go down rather than the obvious “Naomi is screwed no matter what”.

SCWL 5 PARALLELS SURVIVOR: THAILAND

Our fifth “real” season and we avoid our magic merging number. Survivor always merged with ten people halfway through day 20 in the first four seasons. But Survivor 5/Thailand came and producers tricked players in delaying the merge until only eight people remained. Sadly Survivor has never tried an eight-person merge or lower ever since. Now a merge with any group fewer than twelve people is shocking.

Times have changed.

But other things so far have mirrored Thailand. We have an underestimated tribe, Daln, that fell short in numbers early. An overestimated tribe, Spau, had the advantage but has since blown it due to a series of errors. A mutiny came in the fifth round which impacted the game in one way or another. Then the underestimated tribe now seems unbeatable.

BUT THE PATTERN CHANGES

But Daln couldn’t snag another win and put the nail in the coffin. Brenda and Jason swept a very confused Gloria and Tyler. Gloria and Tyler are much stronger at any other challenge thus far, but a game like this was definitely not their Wil Forte.

BRENDA AND JASON ECSTATIC

A win at this point, no matter how little difference it may make to their ultimate finish, must seem like a huge gift of optimism at this point. The win was well-earned.

CHRISTIAN AND NAOMI “WORK” THE DUEL

Seeing Christian getting whooped word after word after word on MGI made me assume that Christian was intentionally meant to lose and join either tribe with the mission of using his idol effectively. Let’s get to it.

CHRISTIAN AND JEREMY

The players I have wanted to see interact since the start of the season are finally doing so. Each hold an idol, but Jeremy seems to hide his better than Christian. Christian already asked me how a self-vote would work. I imagine he asked on behalf of Jeremy.

Clearly Christian tipped off Jeremy to voluntarily self-vote and save himself. Jeremy, not wanting to sacrifice himself, probably calculated that losing somebody from an oversized alliance may be the key to winning this game. Drop a member of Daln while holding the majority, and voila, you move up the ladder.

Candy appeared to be in on the plan because she voted against Jeremy. I assume this whole Tribal Council was a strategic triangle between Christian, Candy, and Jeremy. And the other five players were used like fools.

MORAY AND TYLER TRYING TO SAVE CHRISTIAN?

I didn’t know what exactly transpired until the exit interview, but Moray and Tyler both were looking to save Christian initially. But because Christian “scrambled”, they locked their votes onto Christian. Sadly one of them will soon pay the Kathryn Price for this mistake.

However, the biggest mistake of all that will haunt Daln down the road. . .

MICHELLE VOTES AGAINST CANDY?

Because of the insanity surrounding the vote, Michelle took the easy way out and threw her vote onto Candy. Well, it was a vote to ensure Candy was sent to MGI. Was the vote meant to be anonymous? If so, it could have worked out well. Candy would be paranoid, but not have a specific person of anyone on Daln to attribute it towards. But because of what is about to happen this will severely backfire.

CHRISTIAN BECOMES FIRST PERSON IN SCWL EVER TO PLAY AN IDOL PRE-MERGE

Last season we had Raz become the first person blindsided with an idol pre-merge. Nobody else had thrown an idol away during this phase of the game. This season we have somebody who not only plays it, but succeeds in getting it activated.

Bravo, Christian. I couldn’t have picked a better time myself. The vote was 4-2-1-1 and therefore would force the core alliance of Daln to vote one of its own out. A core member goes, we see other Daln member’s scattered loyalties, and oh muh werd, Daln probably collapses.

But one other major side effect happens. . .

CANDY KNOWS SHE GOT SCREWED BY MICHELLE

As soon as this happened I knew this would strain all of Candy’s relations with Michelle, and it’s not even the fact that Michelle didn’t call the day after.
.
.
.
.
.
.
But seriously, by process of elimination it was clear to everyone that Michelle voted for Candy. Jeremy self-voted, Candy knows she voted Jeremy herself, and Christian already made it clear he voted Tyler. It led to a fight between Candy and Michelle.

Now that Albee has been out of Spau for a round, Candy returning to Spau at the merge seems inevitable. However, things are complicated because Christian and Candy must remain on Daln for one more immunity challenge. If they lose again, they either need Naomi to lose the MGI duel to join them and flip one more person (Jeremy) or somehow turn the tribe against Michelle and Gloria.

Yeah. This game is just getting a little complicated at this stage. Buh-duh-buh-buh, i’m lovin’ it.

MORE BUSINESS TO ATTEND TO

Before players can think about how to handle Christian and Candy in the following round, the four players left behind must eat one of their own. Although Michelle and Jeremy seemed to be part of the inner circle that Danial outed in the fourth roudn, they managed to avoid the trap. Although I have a feeling that Jeremy helped set the trap in the first place.

But for Gloria, Moray, Tyler, and Sergiu, this is a big mess. Tyler and Moray likely know they have been 5th and 6th on Daln, while Sergiu and Gloria probably have thought themselves as #1 and #2.

GLORIA’S IDOL IS KNOWN AND COMPLICATES THINGS EVEN FREAKIN’ MORE

As you will see from Gloria’s confessionals, she really didn’t know whether or not to use her idol. She has a 25% chance of going home plus the crap that went on last round as well as the fact she blew this round’s immunity challenge. It wouldn’t take much to send her packing as a merge approaches and she becomes a huge social threat.

Would it be wise for Sergiu, Moray, and Tyler to blindside Gloria or force her idol into play?

Players must have considered eliminating Tyler. Gloria cast a vote his way. It only takes two and you’re deadlocked. In fact, if Gloria receives tow votes and she plays her idol, the other player with votes is doomed to go home.

But there’s Moray too. Gloria has been after him for several rounds even though it appears Tyler is the true person who wants Gloria gone. Gloria freakin’ picked Moray on Opening Day as Daln’s first member. Moray has seemed to be on the fringe of Daln ever since. Will Sergiu and Tyler band with Gloria to take Moray out?

And then there’s Sergiu. He never comes up in confessionals. Maybe Sergiu is playing more of a winner’s game than Jeremy. In fact, Candy assumes Sergiu is the leader of this operation.

GLORIA PLAYS HER IDOL AFTER CHANGING HER MIND FIFTY TIMES

I haven’t seen somebody’s mind change regarding a vote since Noah cast his Final Four vote in SCWL 2 to eliminate Michael via deadlock. Or when Fiona successfully fooled Brian, Flynn, RyLis, and Aaron to make them switch their votes five times during the RyLis blindside in SCWL 1.

But Gloria plays her idol. She is guaranteed to be safe. Will we see two hidden immunity idols activate in the same round? Or will Gloria look like a fool as she wastes an idol? Who takes the fall?

MORAY TAKES THE FALL

After a week long round full of several twists and turns, Moray goes home in a 2-1-1 vote. Ouch.

sir richard rose

Moray wrote down Gloria’s name. If he switched his vote to Tyler and create the 2-2 deadlock. . .he would have stayed. And he would feel less silly for voting somebody who played the idol.

Moray understands the two critical errors he made:
a) Not re-reading the rules regarding the idol
b) Refusing to believe that Christian had the idol

And to a lesser extent, the error of not voting for Tyler to make it 2-2. But then again Gloria may have flopped her vote to eliminate Moray at that point.

He could have thrown his vote away, and Tyler goes home eleven times out of ten in this scenario.

Instead, Sergiu and Tyler are the only two players out of eight people to score an elimination vote for this Tribal Council. Crazy.

FIRST DALN MEMBER SENT TO MGI

Following Moray’s elimination, Tyler was sent to MGI. He is indeed the first Daln member to make a trip there. There will not be a merge next round. Therefore, Tyler must do everything to survive this crucial duel against Naomi. That showdown shall be fierce.

BUMMER TO SEE MORAY GO

I always feel bad for newbies to the ORG universe that go home early. SCWL has always been of the biggest series for introducing new people into the overall Facebook ORG community. SCWL 2 alone had 8/18 players debut in ORGs, and nearly all of them made it to top eight. SCWL 3 had a few, SCWL 4 only had Mark, and suddenly this season we faced a big rise thanks to Moray, Christian, Jeremy (I think Jeremy anyway), and lesser known players such as Michelle, Sergiu (who incidentally played with me in the only Facebook ORG I have played in the past 20 months), and Tyler.

Moray played hard, he was active, and sent in confessionals along the way. In fact he sent votes in the form of a photo from time to time. Veteran players tend to be lazier when it comes to confessionals in SCWL. That has always been the trend.

WHAT ARE MY EXPECTATIONS?

No clue. There are ten variables in this game now. Between unwilling to merge, the upset in the challenge, the MGI plot, two idols, and Moray’s shocking boot. . .anything could happen next round.

CONFESSIONALS ROUND SEVEN

BRENDA,

I’d like the jury to start this round … so I at least make it to the jury
But I absolutely do NOT want to merge this round … no no no no
I figure if we lose … either me or Jason goes … but there’s always the hope that we’ll win

Hey …
So … this challenge is taking forever but I wanted to clarify something … as it looks like Gloria is about to miss her posting again ..
If she misses …
Lets say Jason adds the Letter Z (for her turn)
And then Challenges
Who has to come up with a word …
Gloria … or Me?

And … if it’s her … can he actually do that?  Make it impossible for her to come up with a word for her turn … and then Challenge her for his turn?

ME: Jason would be challenging Gloria. But he can’t add a letter and challenge in the same turn. For the very reason you just mentioned lol.

So he has to add two letters?
Or challenge? and wait to see if she shows up?

ME: And it looks like I woke up just in time lol. I’ve been studying for exams this week. I touched my head to my pillow for a 9pm nap and woke up about an hour ago lol. Add two letters or challenge.

LoL ..
So next question then …. can we use a plural of a word – as long as when you enter the plural in the dictionary.com site it links to the word?
(the singular not the plural)

ME: I see where you’re going with this. Yes, that’s fine.

Ya … I guess … it’s just so … Long
Oh and FYI … your power rankers suck
They don’t know what’s going on …

CANDY,

I vote for NO MERGE. I also vote to start Jury right now.

Can I do the private challenge in order to try to find the HII?

ME: What’cha talkin’ about, Willis?

I know that there is a private challenge for the MGI idol. Can I do it?

ME: No comment. 🙂

You’re not commenting on whether I can do the challenge?

My vote is for Tyler. Sorry, Tyler. you’re a sweet guy, but I gotta watch out for myself.

I was JUST writing my confessional to you. Ah, well.

OMG. Jeremy got a self vote. F—ity f— f— f—. This might not work out for me after all…

This. Is. AWESOME.

Confessional:
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
*schnort*
*gasp*
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
Oh, this game.
*wipes tear*

FYI- I knew that Christian had the idol the entire time. I knew that the tribal council would be null & void if he played it. I knew that everyone was scrambling to get me to go to MGI. The only person that lied to me was Michelle. Now I’m in an awesome position to vote Gloria out (because she is just annoying the s— out of me) and get Sergiu to MGI, considering Sergiu seems to be the leader here.

CHRISTIAN,

Merge – no
Jury – yes

So it’s me against Naomi. A great match-up. I get to match wits with an awesome player.
So far she;’s in the lead, but this dog has a trick or two up his sleeve
(that was a confessional)

I have a question… can a selfvote only be achieved through not voting at all?
And you said that if tribal becomes null and void if the majority vote for the person who played the idol… what happens in the event of a tied vote?

Logan. Logan. Logan.
*seeing if saying your name 3 times works*

Having reread the thing, it answered my question.
Well… one of them anyway

I am playing my idol.
^^**–THE IDOL–**^^
Voting out… Jeremy

ME: A self-vote can be achieved through not voting at all, yes.
Does that change how you would be voting? My apologies because this is the first time since July 2008 where I did not have Internet.

Gotta admit bossman.. that was pretty insane

*CONFESSIONAL*

So… it worked. My big plan came to fruition.
The first step was rogue voting twice, and getting the idol. The second was winning enough challenges on MGI to give idol clues to someone I trust.
The third… taking a dive when I needed to, and landing on the Daln tribe.
The fourth… and that which was key… making sure I had the majority of the votes.

This ensured that someone on their side is definitely going.
And now… I might just have one more move to play.

GLORIA,

a)I VOTE AND DO NOT WANT MERGE!
b) I VOTE and DO NOT WANT JURTY TO START UNTIL 9 Players!
not JURTY BUT  “JURY” mis-spelled lol

OK i stated I could not be here for 10 hours today…ok so who goes after Jason?

I got it Tyler goes after Jason psts the next letter then back to Brenda then me correct. I need to know how many hours we have between each letter that is posted Logan ok?

ME: Eleven hours between each letter.

GLORIA: thanks Logan

Logan, me and Tyler are completely confused in this challenge..I understand word has to be in dictionary.com    can word be a word that is abbreviations, can a word be plurals..   Also can a word be challenged with only 2 letters played or do you have to wait a certain amount of time to challenge someone? Can you please answer all these questions in message to Tyler and I together. Also after a challenge if they can add another letter to make a word how does that work?

another  question, does a vowel have to be played before someone can challenge the other and if so when we challenge them do we have to be able to make a word out of letters also

Logan that last word is controversial
you said no poroper nouns well that word has a double  meaning
Gruyères is a town in the district of Gruyère in the canton of Fribourg in Switzerland. Its German name is Greyerz. The medieval town is an important tourist …
so isn’t that the same spelling so doesn’t that weigh both ways with some words
A picture-perfect medieval town on a small hill with a castle and three totally different museums: In Gruyères, 800-year-old regional history and culture meet Oscar …
Tourist information of the area La Gruyere (Switzerland) and presentation of Bulle, Charmey, Gruyères and Moleson. Online Hotel-reservation, package deals …
I think we have a place and a proper name here Logan so hold the clock ok
i posted it on the chat with us 4
Logan if they are allowed to win this point it is unfair cause it is a place and a proper noun..the point should be ours not their’s
doesn’t matter rather in the dictionary.com or not it is a palce and township or whatever

I fought the fight lol

ME: I should note the proper noun use doesn’t even pop up in the ads section of dictionary.com for me.
I saw a couple ads for laptops and that was it lol.

on No the hotel cains and city in Switzerland is in the thing about cheese lol
see when you put the word gruyeres in the search engine at dictionary .com this is what comes up
like following ok:

Gru·yère
[groo-yair, gri-; French gry-yer] Show IPA
noun
a firm, pale-yellow cheese, made of whole milk and having small holes, produced chiefly in France and Switzerland.
Also called Gru·yère cheese.
——————————————————————————–
Origin:
1795–1805;  after Gruyère  district in Switzerland where the cheese is made

lol

ME: Those ads never came up for me.

thats how I found it under dictionary.com and did more research on it when I saw challenge made and your decision lol

ME: Not part of the actual definition listed on the page anyway.

so they have 2-0 correct.

ME: Yes.

oh i am good sport but fight the foght and you know that lol
and mispell too lmfao

foght should be fight in a dam word challenge lmao

GLORIA: hey i have quick question and don’t laugh ok

ME: Alright.

let just say Brenda post a letter whatever it may be ok
example:
letter E

ME: Well, if they challenge, they can answer with any word that starts with the letter ‘E’.

gotcha s—
lol
i want to whoop their asses
express me a can of word challenge WHOOP ASS right now lmfao

express mail
hell no overnight it lol
i guess if we lose we will get Christian on our tribe or Naomi s—fire
I think Naomi will beat Christian but who knows
confession:
confession:
this word challenge sucks and I want to whoop Brenda and Jason’s asses with great comeback..They now have us 2-0 when I give this suck ass confessional, cause I hate losing challenges when representing my team
But if we lose we will get Naomi or Christian but probably Christian cause Naomi is ker gamer I hear.
I want Daln tribe to all make the finals all 6 of us!
met to say Naomi is killer challenger I think but Christian sounds good too so who knows
anyways my final 4 are Michelle, Sergiu and Jeremy and hope they are just playing all others in fake alliances. Sergiu told me that Tyler and Mora think they are in 4 man alliance with Tyler, Moray jeremy and Sergiu and Sergiu told me that ain’t happening.

But you need to use every letter added, in that order?

ME: Yes, you have to have BARKIN in that order.
Any letters you add after the ‘N’ is up to you when you are challenged.

Okay  I think I get it!
Could you not have given us a mindjolt challenge! Stop giving me all the ones i’ll be s—ty at!

ME: I’ve always been anti-Mindjolt. I prefer to come up with creative ones or challenges I rarely see. Plus people can exploit the Mindjolt system to get really high scores anyway.

Stupid creativity -_-

ME: 🙂

Wait, before my turn comes, if I get challenged can i add as many letters as i want or just one?

ME: You can add as many. So if you had the letters ‘DRA’ you can add ‘DRAGONS’ to complete it.

Excellent  Thanks Also, I was wondering, if someone misses their time, instead of adding two letters could we add one letter and a challenge?

ME: Yes.

Oh that is EXCELLENT

ME: Er wait, I see what you man. No. *mean

UGH

ME: Like adding ‘X’ then challenge for CX?

ME: “Uhhhh, 110 in roman numerals?” lol.

Those were the exact letters I planned on using
Well, letter and challenge

wait, so if I was to challenge, it goes to the person before me, so Glo right?

Also, I promise this is the last question, if Glo doesn’t post and I challenge, does the challenge to to Brenda?

ME: Nope, it goes to Glo.

Ugh
But stay on until I post my next letter, it shouldn’t be long, but Brenda and I are gonna try to mess Tyler up

**EDITOR’S NOTE: More questions are posed regarding the challenge. It’s not that exciting.**

JEREMY,

no merge
start jury

MICHELLE,

Vote a : I do not want a merge
Vote b : I do not want a jury until the final 9

Confessional : I am trying REALLY hard not to post the wrong things in the different chat rooms…always triple checking before I hit send. A couple of ppl have said things in the wrong place, and I don’t know whether it will come back to haunt them or me.
This morning I had chats with Christian, Candy, Moray, Whole tribe minus Christian, and Sergiu Jeremy and Glo going…….crazy.

Ong last minute scrambling and insanity.

Ok I  am voting candy because I think a lot have voted for Christian and I think candy and Christian have voted for Tyler and I don’t want Tyler to go so hopefully this will get candy to mgi……. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, this had been a long morning!

MORAY,

Hi Logan,
Vote: NO TO MERGE AT 11.
Vote: YES TO START JURY AT 11.
Thanks!

CONFESSIONAL: Dammit. Not even going to talk about the Immunity Challenge because I won’t have anything nice to say.
So at this point it’s crystal clear – be really nice to Christian then vote him out. That’s the plan. If everything goes according to plan I’ll be shocked. Candy may well be making up a counter-plan to avoid being blindsided if she feels paranoid, Gloria may well be organising a couple of votes to go elsewhere just in case Christian DOES have an idol and targets her, Michelle really could do anything, and as for me … well, if *I* don’t write Christian’s name down, then who will? So at this point, I’m hoping things go according to plan but I’m expecting to be blindsided. Wait, is it a blindside if you expect it? I don’t actually think it is. Well, anyway, whatever. I’ll be sleeping with my ears perked up tonight.

Getting this in now before we have a repeat of that awful scenario which happened last time…
VOTE: Tyler
REASON: Your plan had better work, I’m telling you. If this backfires though, then you only have yourself to blame. Fingers crossed, that’s all I can say.

Change of mind.
VOTE: Christian
REASON: I told you not to scramble. I told you to remain quiet. You didn’t do it. Sorry Tyler, I know you want me to follow the plan, but I think it’s more important to send a clear message to Christian and the rest of the tribe.

VOTE: Gloria
REASON: I hope you don’t play your idol. Whichever way this turns out, adios Gloria.
CONFESSIONAL: Dammit, should have stuck to my guns. At least that way I’d have been guaranteed final ten. This twist sucks. Ever so much.

MORAY – THE DAY AFTER: Dammit. Dammit dammit dammit dammit dammit. Still, Ponderosa has shelter and food and they’re all starving and probably crying with hunger pains. Ha! HAHAHAHAHA! I hope their camp gets flooded! Maybe if enough people quit I’ll be let back into the game. Nah, just kidding. Ponderosa’s nice.
Well, my biggest mistake in this game was second-guessing myself. I’m not dumb or whiny enough to blame other people for the fact that I lost. I made it to the jury so I guess I’m kinda proud of how far I got. Even so, I was playing to win and being out this early, I purposely didn’t come here to not make it to the final five at least. This just … bleugh. Stupid idol twist, it should be Jeremy here, not me. Well anyway, it is what it is, maybe next time I’ll TRIPLE check the rules.
So anyway, back to the second-guessing. I was too reluctant to make decisions and just stick to them. I should have just gone with my first choice and voted Tyler to MGI, like he asked me too. Then I would have been saved from the mornic idol twist and lived to see another day in the game.
I can’t help feeling that Glo and Tyler are somewhat to blame as well though, for their pitiful attempt in that challenge. Sure, I could have stepped up but I effectively had no free time to do so – it would have been a selfish, glory-hunting decision not for the good of the tribe. In hindsight, I probably could have done better just by not playing at all. That’s maybe the one thing that would make me feel bad about writing Tyler’s name down at the end of this. Not the fact that he lied to me, betrayed me, backstabbed me, whatever. No, that’s just playing the game. But the fact that he is so worthless in challenges, like Katie Gallagher. In fact, I did wonder why the rice was going down so quickly. Maybe Tyler is Katie in disguise?
I guess you have to be sneakier to win this Survivor and I just didn’t take it as far as I needed to. I have no one to blame but myself. It is what it is, I’m not bitter, I’m not angry (at anyone other than myself, and maybe the host). I wish everyone the best of luck (yes, even you Michelle, I know you’ll probably be reading this eventually in some alcohol-induced semi-coma, you lush). Adios!

NAOMI,

no and yes

So I did the album thing … All five pictures are in one album.

ME: Alrighty.

**EDITOR’S NOTE: NAOMI IS AWARDED JEREMY’S FAKE HIDDEN IMMUNITY IDOL**

ol I see no point but Brenda
and if TC is over may I play my mutiny please?

ME: Keep in mind you can only mutiny if you are on Spau or Daln.

oh i know. its not for me

we may be low on numbers but we have a plan that has worked so far haha

SERG,

I vote FOR the jury to begin with the next tc and AGAINST merge, i don’t want us to merge…

I vote for: Christian…
Reason: I really see no reason to keep you over some1 who i had many converstaions with and you didnt even bother to talk to me after you got on our tribe… Realllllyyy hope you are going home

Confessional: I hate this TC… the most nerveracking i’ve been a part off.. Tyring to save candy kinda put a target on my back and i am quite worried that if Moray Tyler and Christian vote for me… and My alliance (Glo Michelle Jeremy) dosnt stick togheter i might be going home…lol

So if I would get two votes… and i play an idol… Do just those two who voted for me go to tc?

I vote for Moray
Reason: It’s a game.. and i need to make the move the will get me the farest… I am still not sure if is not me that goes home or on MGI, but i hope by making this move, i will garantee a safe spot

Logan, if the 4 votes are on before 1am monday… will the results be posted sooner?

Ok:) I think u have all 4 votes now
I am just crazy to see the outcome of this insane vote

TYLER,

vote to start jury and not start merge

So I haven’t been keeping up with confessionals lately. My bad. I plan on going over a few of the “big events” and doing confessionals on them when I get the time. But anyways the time has come for my latest…

Confessional: The players on my tribe are just taking this challenge way too seriously. This mentality might come back to bite me in the ass, but the way I see it is…what the hell does it matter? If we loose, we vote out whoever comes from MGI and Spau’s down a number either way. I understand wanting to win and trying our best…what I don’t understand is Glo getting all up in an uproar over one point. Seriously…it’s one point. Glo, love you to death, but yeah…calm down. Take a deep breath. Count to ten.

And yeah…apparently the decision to reward Spau that last point is “controversial”. So yeah…change it damn it. Because Glo ordered me to tell you that

honestly if I have any issue at all with the challenge it’s that Brenda and Jason are intentionally stalling their moves to make sure it’s Glo’s turn when she’s not online. I take way more of an issue with that than I do with the point thing, but whatever. It’s your game, not flipping out about it either way…

Voting confessional: Christian, you KNOW this is not in any way a personal vote towards you. The Daln tribe is rock solid and you really didn’t have much of a shot. Sorry to see it end for you so unbalanced. At least you made jury. Happy trails, partner!
My vote is for Christian.

Voting confessional: Well here it is brother, the turning point in the game I’ve been dreading for a long time. A series of bizarre and unlikely events have led us to this unfortunate occasion. Moray, you’ll always be my bro. I truly had a blast playing the game with you. The moment has come where I have to make a choice between personal morals and strategic gameplay. Bottom line is, Glo has the idol and I know she’s going to play it. The only thing left to do is get on her good graces. I’m so sorry it had to come down to this.

My  vote is for Moray

TRIBAL COUNCIL #7

(CANDY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(GLORIA)-(JEREMY)-(MICHELLE)-(MORAY)-(SERGIU)-(TYLER)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)

You must answer your questions in order for your vote to count.

Votes are due by 900pm eastern Saturday.

CANDY,

1. A lot has happened since Daln was last here. . .two of which is that you and Christian have been away from the Spau tribe from the fourth Tribal Council. So everyone here hasn’t been to TC in a while. So let’s cover the mutiny. You decided to mutiny. What was the advantage to jumping to Daln?

While on Spau, no one talked to me. Not a soul. It was nice to come to Daln where people were talking to me until this loss. I have a feeling that I will be either voted out or heading to mgi.

2. Do you think there’s ever a situation where you would work with another former Spau member?

If Daln decides to keep me here, I will never work with Spau.

CHRISTIAN,

1. At the end of round four you were sent to MGI. You put together two victories before losing this round to Naomi. It’s round seven and you’re stepping into a tribe you have never been apart of before. How do you approach integrating into a tribe within 24 hours?

Well basically, I’m pretty screwed no matter what I do. Bears up front, wolves in the back, and my supple, tender flesh in the middle.

2. Today the jury begins. Do you think it’s possible to use the “Hey, if you vote me out, just remember I’ll be on the jury” as a weapon? Or is it too early simply because the growing numbers of a jury don’t seem intimidating yet?

Too Early. Way too early.

CANDY: Gotta say, I can’t believe that Jeremy Bell didn’t answer his questions and will get a self-vote. Wow.

GLORIA,

1. With so few people on the opposing tribe, it also means so few of you can participate in a given challenge. You and Tyler stepped up. Then after a long string of victories, it’s a blow out. Any regrets on volunteering or not pushing someone else to do the challenge in hindsight?

With so few people on the opposing tribe, it also means so few of you can participate in a given challenge. You and Tyler stepped up. Then after a long string of victories, it’s a blow out. Any regrets on volunteering or not pushing someone else to do the challenge in hindsight? Nope no regrets me and Tyler James Linder fought with all our heart and I even had the balls to challenge you on the Proper Noun thing which made you change some of your policies LOL..I will always do what I CAN for my tribe…everybody was busy even myself during day hours like i Told them all.

2. I asked Christian if there was a way he could integrate into the Daln tribe. As a Daln member, do you see Christian having a chance of surviving this Tribal Council?

DAM Logans Hosting-Org what kind of dam question is that to ask me. Right now all our tribe is in uproat cause we all like each other and like Candy too. Nobody wants to vote any dam body out, and yes our tribe is type to welcome Christian Fuentes but hell I don’t know who is going this vote!

JEREMY,

1. Let’s talk about the unprecedented move to not merge with eleven people. I would imagine you guys discussed it amongst yourselves which led to the 11-0 vote. What was your reasoning behind the decision to not merge? Any regrets now that the tribe has lost an immunity challenge, or is there no concern because Spau had such low numbers that it’s ‘game on’ no matter what you do?

2. This is the first time in four rounds that you get to check in where everyone stands. Do you think after a couple weeks that people have fallen out of contact which in turn shifts the dynamics of the tribe?

MICHELLE,

1. Tonight is a night where someone could make a move for the rogue vote idol. All you have to do is be the first person at this camp to rogue vote twice, and suddenly the idol is yours. Do you think a move will be made to claim it this round? Or is too late in the game to throw your vote away?

I suppose it is never too late, but you have to take into account that the numbers are getting smaller and ppl can generally suss out who did what. Do you really want ppl to vote for you because there is a chance you might have an idol? I think not.

2. Why has this tribe been so successful? Because it wasn’t that long ago that Spau was up 8-6-0. Suddenly it’s six original Daln and five original Spau. Is there a moment where this tribe suddenly became cohesive?

I think we became a cohesive tribe after Alex’ exit, when ppl started to talk a lot more to everyone else. I don’t understand tribes that don’t talk to each other…..how can a game be fun if there is an uncaring attitude? I think we have a lovely bunch of people in our tribe….although I don’t know what they ate for breakfast this morning, I do know that they are fun to talk to and the chat room we have is a great place to discuss strategy and challenge play. The last time I felt like this with a tribe was in my first org.

MORAY,

1. I may as well ask a question I ask every Tribal Council–do you expect an idol to be played this round?

Well, Logan; I will be shocked and surprised like Jenna Marbles being hit on if an idol is played. At the same time, I will be shocked and surprised like Blueberry girl’s sister if an idol isn’t played. I really don’t know what to expect. At this point, I can only hope that everything goes according to the plan and that unholy bitch Germaine Greer gets voted out.

2. Are there people on this tribe who you think feel truly one hundred percent safe this round?

Yes, probably. Michelle probably feels very secure, because we all fight over her for warmth during the long cold nights. Jeremy probably feels safe because he’ll be needed to build our shelter if and when we have to move to a new beach for the merge. Sergiu probably feels safe because there just isn’t any reason to vote him out. Gloria and Tyler are probably a bit paranoid, just like me, while Candy is convinced she’s picking up votes and Christian is either 100% sure he’s getting voted out, OR!!! Alternatively, he’s 100% sure he’s staying and that he has sole power over who does get voted out, due to having an idol … OR!!!! Maybe, just maybe, the person who thinks they’re least safe … is probably the most. I’m just talking crap now. We all feel safe, even Christian. Even Germaine feels safe now.

MICHELLE: Lmfao

SERG,

1. A long challenge that was played this round. What goes on at camp as you wait and wait and wait to see if you’re going to Tribal Council or not? Would you make a different move this round if a challenge was done within 24-36 hours like normal?

It is really nerveracking waiting so long. You keep waiting to see who scores and who made a move and how things are looking… And this challenge it was very difficult considering the turnout… But i honestly see no reason for me to make any changes in my game play since it is still a lost. Like any other challenge if we lose we go to TC and there is no reason why i would act differently now.

2. How do you think the other players in the tribe perceive you?

Now this is a tricky one, simply because i cant read minds… But i honestly belive that i am seen as a likable and sociable person who is giving his best in challenges and who is trying to keep a positiv attitude.

TYLER,

1. The game is no longer a game of ‘vote out whoever you want gone’ but now has the added caveat of ‘vote out whoever you want gone who will in turn vote for you’. Do you think how you send the first juror home will be just as important as sending the ninth juror home?

It’s the jury phase of the game, but were still in two separate tribes. No offense to Christian, I’m sure he’s an awesome guy, but the fact of the matter is we haven’t even been given a chance to get to know him. Whoever gets voted out right before the jury is someone who you know you’ll have formed some sort of a relationship going that deep into the game with. So no, on a purely logic based level I don’t think the 1st juror is as important as the last juror.

2. I hate to bring it up, but the last time you guys were here for Tribal Council, it came off a maze challenge loss where you were given ninety percent of the work. This time you fall into a crucial role and you come up short again. Do you think your tribemates will lose faith in you when it comes to future challenges?

No, by all means bring it up. I basically suck at these challenges, haha. It’s all good, I take no shame in it. Especially when were competing against Brenda the half-cyborg both times. I think what matters more is that I did in fact step up to the plate and give it my best shot. Plus gotta admit, heading into the merge being perceived as being bad at challenges might not be such a bad thing.

Okay. When you vote, please do so in the following format:

VOTE: (L. . .O. . .G. . .A. . . N.)
REASON: I have been waiting five days to cast this vote! You took so dang long. I entered ‘Logan’ into dictionary.com and you know what came up? “A self-deprecating idiot who doesn’t know how to speed things up, and needs to think through his challenges a bit more”. Yeah. I went there. Consider yourself expelled from camp.

Between now and 900pm eastern Saturday, it is time to vote. Daln tribe, you’re up.

MORAY,

TC VOTE REVEAL

I have tallied the votes.

If anybody has played a hidden immunity idol this round, now would be the time I’d reveal it.

No one? Okay.

CHRISTIAN: I am playing my idol. ^^**–THE IDOL–**^^

Ah, I see. The rules of my Survivor state that if an idol is played, and the player who played the idol receives the highest number of votes, the idol will activate. When activated, this Tribal Council is null and void. Anyone who voted for that person will stay behind for a new Tribal Council while everyone else will exit Tribal Council and be safe at camp.

Candy, Jeremy, Christian, and Michelle, the four of you are safe. You cannot vote but better yet you cannot be voted for. New TC will be posted soon.

CANDY: So much for not voting for me, eh Michelle?

CANDY: Waaaaait a second…. I’m safe at the revote????

MICHELLE: Candy, I never said that.

MORAY: Whoah wait what? What sort of crazy going-on is this?

SERG: …

TRIBAL COUNCIL #7B:

(GLORIA)-(MORAY)-(SERGIU)-(TYLER)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)

You must answer your questions in order for your vote to count.

Votes due 100am eastern Monday.

Questions I expect: Yes, you can play an idol at this Tribal Council.

Yes, whoever receives the second highest number of votes amongst the four of you is sent to MGI.

Just consider this Tribal Council as the real one, and that everything that happened in the Christian vote never happened. All of those votes cast just now were null and void, in case you were trying to track if the four Christian votes/two votes Jeremy/one vote Candy/one vote Tyler would be counted in past votes history. Just cross those votes out. They’re gone.

Remember that the votes just cast do not go towards the rogue vote counter either. So if you voted for Tyler or Candy, sorry, it’s not a rogue vote. It is as if it never happened.

GLORIA,

1. Both Spau members have avoided execution for this round. A full-fledged Daln member is guaranteed to go. What is the criteria for voting out someone who has been on the same tribe as you for seven rounds?

I like every single member that is in this 4 pact deal we all have. I will take each person for the values they each bring me and go forth from there with my vote. This is in the hands of us 4 this vote and from there we all go!

2. Only 4/8 agreed who should go home. Are you surprised the tribe was that split? And why do you think it was that split?

And why do you think it was that split? I don’t know if I called it split! Everybody worries about MGI and it screws the game up. But someone is pushing buttons for sure around here! So farewell to one of us 4. TYLER, MORAY AND SERGIU you have all been wonderful on this tribe to play with!

MORAY,

1. Take me down the line of how the strategy with the idols changes in this game compared to the TV show. Why do you think you are one of the four to fall prey to it?

Because your rules suck for the people who decided to be loyal, I guess. I’m not having a go at you here, but they definitely do not work in our favour, seeing as under normal idol rules all four of us would be safe.

2. Did anyone suspect that Christian would play the idol?

I don’t know, did anyone say ” I will be shocked and surprised like Jenna Marbles being hit on if an idol is played. At the same time, I will be shocked and surprised like Blueberry girl’s sister if an idol isn’t played. I really don’t know what to expect. At this point, I can only hope that everything goes according to the plan and that unholy bitch Germaine Greer gets voted out.”? Because if anyone said that, then I would say that they suspected an idol would be played – but only if they said so in those exact words.

SERG,

1. Not only do you have to vote someone out, but you have to avoid being sent to MGI within the tiny 4-person dynamic. Do you think luck will play the biggest role in determining which two of you will survive the vote and remain a member of this tribe?

Not only do you have to vote someone out, but you have to avoid being sent to MGI within the tiny 4-person dynamic. Do you think luck will play the biggest role in determining which two of you will survive the vote and remain a member of this tribe?
I defenetly think that luck with be a key factor on this vote considering the low number of votes that will be casted.

2. On one hand, you have learned that you can trust the other three people voted the same way as you. On the other hand, one of them must be sent packing. How do you determine which of the other three must go despite the fact they directly aligned with you as a voting block for this vote?

This will be a very dificult decision considering the fact that we all kept our words and proved we are trustwordy. However one do has to go home and it is up to us to decide who that is. One way or another, we have to make that decision.

TYLER,

1. You saw your name come up once, but that vote is erased, and the player who voted for you is not voting at this Tribal Council. Do you think that vote signalled anything to your position in the game or do you truly believe this vote will be treated as a clean slate?

Logan, it’s always been part of my strategy to never get overly worked up seeing my name come up at tribal. Letting paranoia pester is one of the most dangerous things you can do in a game like this. I’ve had spare votes thrown my way, but I’m definitely not going to loose any sleep over it.

2. Do you think that regardless of who goes home that the tribe will be fragmented due to the chaotic nature of these Tribal Councils?

Now here is the more challenging question. Yes, as sad as it is to say there’s no doubt the Daln tribe is going to be fragmented this tribal. Who could forget the kooky antics and amazing spirit of Gloria Query, the all around awesomeness of Sergiu Zablau, or the mountain of sass that is one Moray James. Honestly it sucks to think I’m going to be playing the game without any one of you. In your own ways you’ve each been the heart and sole of Daln so this is a really crappy particular set of people to have to be voting for

Okay. When you vote please do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: I don’t know how we can still legally vote for you knowing you played an idol, but uh, okay.

You have until 100am eastern Monday (24 hours 20 minutes from now) to vote. Gloria, Moray, Serg, and Tyler, the four of you are fair game. It is time to vote. The four of you are up.

Moray, the tribe has spoken.

(XXXXX)

It’s time for you to go.

MORAY: Well at least I made jury.

ME: Well that was an unprecedented pre-merge Tribal Council.

If there’s any lesson to be learned from this round, it is this: Be careful of the decisions you make because they can impact this game in a big way.

Two idols have been played. Now the mystery turns to where that final one is hidden. Has it been claimed? Who has it?

And on top of that, the jury phase has begun. Note that because there was a tie for the second highest number of votes, whoever was the last person to become a member of Daln on Opening Day will head to MGI that was involved in the tie.

This means Tyler will ship out to MGI where he will face off against Naomi.

P.S. Pick two people to play in the next challenge within the next 24 hours. Gloria is the only person who cannot play in the challenge.

JEREMY: Sad to see you go Moray. What a crazy tribal. I’d like to play in this challenge.

MICHELLE: 😦

MICHELLE: I wouldn’t mind playing.

SERG: Any challenge hint Logans?

GLORIA: 😦

GLORIA: Tyler will be missed also on MGI guys!

CANDY: Wow. The unbreakable alliance makes it back into Daln. Well done, Glo and Sergiu. Personally, I think that Christian Fuentes and I should play in this challenge, since he and I have the most to lose.

GLORIA: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M,

MICHELLE: That song pauses at N O P…….you kept me hanging

GLORIA: YES!

SERG: I think Jeremy and Michelle already sayd they want to play… They make a good team so I know they will do great in the challenge

CANDY:  I am not comfortable with Jeremy doing it since he has been so inactive

SERG: He had final exams but he graduated this weekend so he will be much more active

MICHELLE: Jeremy has been doing uni exams the last 2 weeks. He has finished now, he had some celebration on the weekend.

MICHELLE: lol ditto Sergiu

CANDY: But Christian Fuentes and I have the most to lose here… Why can’t we fight for our own lives?

SERG: That is true but Jeremy and Michelle already said they want to play. It would be unfair towards them if we just allowed u to play instead cuz u feel u have most to lose..

CHRISTIAN: I’m good either way.

JEREMY: if everyone except candy is happy i’d like to play as i haven’t been in a challenge since quoridor. And Christian can attest to my ability in that

GLORIA: true point Jeremy Bell..

CANDY: Glad to see my opinion matters here…

GLORIA: Everybody is giving their opinions and not all will be the same I see that now!

CHRISTIAN: “Even in Daln, I get no respect!”

CANDY: If we lose, it is clearly me or Christian being voted out. Personally, I think we should be given the chance to fight for ourselves.

JEREMY: That’s one opinion.

MICHELLE: I am assuming if you wanted the names before 24 hours is up then that is when the challenge begins?

ME: Well, no need to figure out who is sitting out yet considering Naomi used her Mutiny Trigger today. Numbers may or may not change and alter how many/who you would be sitting out.

NEXT TIME ON SCWL 5:

– You thought the unprecedented moves were done? Not even close. A twist introduced in SCWL 4 has gone unnoticed and unused since its introduction to the series. However, one player sees they have this reward from Opening Day. Will this undervalued reward finally make the greatest impact of all events in the season thus far?

– With the only idol remaining in the game and Moray out of the way, can Jeremy ascend his position in the Daln tribe? Or will he be punished for his deceptive self-vote?

– Daln predictably enters a state of chaos as the tribe cannot come to an agreement as to who will play against Brenda and Jason in what could be the most important challenge of the season.

– After several rounds of Spau members and MGI-born players exclusively battling on MGI, Tyler enters the fray and must win a duel against Naomi. And the stakes increase right before the duel.

– And as the immunity challenge begins, the game is reset in a way that nobody expects it and draws a line in the sand for all ten players in the game. Can the dynamics ever change after this moment or will this define the remainder of the season?

– As if that is once again far too much to occur in one episode, Tribal Council will leave you scratching your head as to what the heck just happened.

MORAY EXIT INTERVIEW

1. You came from the same camp that fellow ORG first timers were recruited to play SCWL. I know you have played multiple ORGs since then. What is the difference between playing your first game and playing subsequent ones?

Well, I joined two. The first one is Kayde’s game which is going alright although I don’t doubt I’ll be one of the first gone from my tribe. The other one is Branden’s game which I’ve just been voted out of. Second. Which is for want of a better word, humiliating. I think being a newbie in the ORG world means that people don’t realise just how useful I am. Perhaps I should have revealed rather than hidden my past Survivor experience. For those of you who didn’t know, I used to play Survivor on an unrelated forum. In four games, I first took part in Cycle 3, finishing 5th (as the last remaining member of my original tribe), then hosted Cycle 4, finished 2nd in Cycle 5, won Cycle 6 and then returned for Cycle 7 as the only previous winner. I won that one too So I guess I was wrong to keep that a secret, because otherwise I would have been able to establish with others that my loyalty means everything to me. They may have realised I would be an asset to their game further down the road. I have never betrayed my original alliance. Ever. If I’m with you, I’ll tell you. If I’m not with you, I won’t tell you. To answer your question properly, my experience of the new games is very different to my experience of yours. It’s hard to say though, because I think a better comparison is comparing my previous experience to my new experience. Starting with yours. The ORG world is much tougher – everyone’s a player and almost all of them have pre-existing relationships and know each other well. I’m an unknown quantity and I guess people find that offputting.

2. You were the first pick to be on Daln by G3.loria. Why did she pick you? Considering she already had a relationship with numerous other players, do you think she picked you to have an additional ally in the game?

EDITOR’S NOTE: No clue why I said ‘G3.loria’. I usually proofread my s— beforehand. Oh well.

She picked me because I spoke with her the most on Opening day. I kind of know her from the Sucks forum, and I was curious. So we started talking, and I guess I made an impression on her or maybe she felt she’d be able to mould me easily.. I really did want to work with her at that point.

3. Then almost right after the pick em it seemed like you and Gloria were gunning for each other. Well, Gloria really wanted you out by what it seemed up to that point. What the heck happened there? Why did she want to dismiss her number one pick?

Well, after she picked me, I made a joke about how she’d be that “older female” on the tribe who is almost invariably the first or second boot from her tribe. You know, the Sonja, the Marilyn, the Patricia (oh dear, this doesn’t sound flattering – sorry Glo! Love ya!), the Lill (let’s just not think about the Outcasts twist), the Timber Tina, the Sylvia, the Leslie, the Gillian, the Sandy, the Betsy, the Wendy Jo, the Christine, the Nina … and as she said in her jury speech, it rung alarm bells. Stupid mistake on my part, I tried to be too comfortable too soon. I should have made my personality clearer before trying to joke around like that. Then of course, I “agreed” to the alliance with Alex, then aligned with Tyler and they put the bug in my ear that Glo couldn’t be trusted. It sucks because in hindsight I should have trusted Glo and given her my loyalty, but that just shows my inexperience in ORGs I guess.

4. Did the Pick Em alter your strategy as you entered the game?

No, not at all, I’m used to tribal pick ’ems.

5. What was your strategy entering your first ORG, anyway? Did the experience match your expectations going into the game at all?

Absolutely no way. My strategy was to just be my usual humourous self, try to hold back the strategy and up the social side. In my previous experience, I had always been criticised for my poor social game and it’s something I’m well aware of. This time, I wanted to make sure I didn’t slip up. I wanted to speak with people and just have conversations where strategy didn’t even come up, just be people’s friends rather than some gamebot. So I guess my expectations were probably warped by my experience. I was stepping into the unknown but thought I was on familiar territory. A very strange feeling.

6. Were you surprised to discover that Gloria, Jeremy, Sergiu, and Michelle developed a core alliance with Tyler as their fifth? Gloria even had Danial under her control, and had a female alliance with Kayde. How did you end up in such a crappy position?

Oh yeah! They hid that well! Especially when Denial outed them, I just dismissed it as his usual bullcrap and moved on. Whoops. I ended up in such a crappy position because I wasn’t prepared to create sub-alliances or make any promises I couldn’t keep. I agreed to an alliance with Alex, then discovered he was taking about five other people to the final two. So I thought, no, not having that, and off he went. I don’t make promises I can’t keep because I don’t see the point of reaching the final if the jury hates you. If I’d known everyone would play hard, then of course I would have too – and stood up for myself if anyone had tried to call me out for it. I guess I was the only one in the game who wasn’t prepared to take it to that level. Not because of some moral compass (all’s fair in this game, I say) but because I thought the majority of people would feel that way.

7. Seeing how the only three people to attend the Daln Tribal Councils have been Alex, Kayde, and Danial. All three of which were never involved in Alex’s elimination. So you get to be the first to reveal why and how Alex got the boot. I can’t seem to find a clear answer in any of the confessionals in the first five rounds as to why the tables had to turn and boot him instead of Danial.

Get ready to spit tea- no, coffee- no, jelly- no, ehm … what the hell do you actually drink? Kool aid? Sunny D? Whatever, get ready to spit it all over your screen.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Water. 99% of the time I drink water. Otherwise it is the ultra rare purchase of a Nestea.

I thought Denial was more reliable. Yes, I thought he’d be loyal to anyone who extended a hand and at that point I trusted Alex less far than I could spit him – and I’m a well-mannered gentleman so I can’t spit very far. At this point, Denial had shown no signs of being a psychotic bitchflop and I thought, in his position I would be grateful for any help and grasp it with both hands and have unwavering loyalty to that person/those people for the rest of the game. So yeah, I didn’t trust Alex, so I spoke with Tyler and did some probing and questiong, and we established that he’d promised us both a super-secret alliance to go to the final two. So of course he’d been caught right there, ByeAlex. We spoke with Jeremy and Sergiu, discussed our concerns, and the four of us became what I thought was an alliance. Whoops.

8. I am sure you love the hidden immunity idols. We may as well get our first question about it out of the way. What was the discussion really like about the rogue vote idol? Alex and Gloria both went for it in the first Tribal Council. Alex paid the price for it, while Gloria would go on to succeed after the third round. So do you think people let Gloria have a cake walk to snag the tribe’s idol?

Ugh, Immunity idols have never interested me. I was given one in my third game when my one and only ally quit at final six, and I won the last three Immunities anyway so I ended up using it on someone else. I think it’s really telling that in 26 seasons of Survivor nobody has ever saved themself with an idol and gone on to win the game. They can only get you so far but I personally think they’re a curse. Look at the final two in this game. Not an idol between them. So yeah, I couldn’t give two hoots if someone rogue voted to get the idol, rather them than me. Let it be known I have no interest in the thing. Kinda sucks that I was indirectly idoled out.

9. You guys won the second immunity challenge. Was there anybody that clearly established themselves as a leader in challenges?

Sergiu was very good in organisation, and Tyler was more than willing to take the bulk of the work, in spite of … interesting results.

10. In round three Tyler failed to lead you guys in the immunity challenge. In fact, he led you off the map and into outer space. Did you ever find your way back? But seriously, why did you guys struggle so much in that challenge? Anything you guys wish you did differently?

In the nicest way possible, it was all Tyler’s fault. I did exactly what I was told in that task. No offence, Tyler was exhausted afterwards and I feel awful for him that he did all that work and it was wrong, but yeah – as for doing anything differently, if someone else had had the free time they would have probably done it. I’m into my statistics and maths and rows and columns and mazes and puzzles and problem solving, so if I’d had the time I’d have really pushed to be the leader on that one.

11. You guys vote out Kayde. Judging from what I have seen and heard, it was a pretty straightforward vote to split it between her, Danial, you, and Tyler. Wait, that’s not straightforward at all. What happened there?

Well, we decided on Kayde, with Denial going back to MGI. Jeremy, I have no idea. I put it down to rogue votes. As for my votes, well one was that accidental self-vote and the other came from the ungrateful bitch previously mentioned in this paragraph (second sentence, to clarify). I was told he was targetting me but my tribe was paying no attention, so yeah, without all the twists it would have been really straightforward indeed.

12. This is the same Tribal Council where Jeremy had to correctly guess how everybody would vote. How in the world did you think he pulled it off? Did anyone suspect that was his mission?

Cheating. He hacked our accounts while we were sleeping. That’s when he put a virus into our systems to convince everyone to get rid of me No, seriously, I think it was part luck and a bigger part brilliance.

13. The core alliance managed to convince Danial to vote for you. I was surprised they successfully convinced him to vote for you. Did you ever interact with Danial that would lead you to believe they would be against you or target you?

That’s not how I understood it. I was under the impression that he started the witchhunt and nobody else was interested. At this point the tribe was up front with me, I knew something was up with him but I didn’t really care because he’d shown himself to be a deranged lunatic by that point who nobody took seriously.

14. When you received that vote against you did it clue you into being on the outside of the politics of the tribe? Or did you just chalk it up to one of Danial’s usual antics?

The second one. I only realised about how close it was when someone (Sergiu?) messaged me all “wtf, you self-voted! ” which was news to me. I didn’t really feel worried.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I misinterpreted that vote. Muh bad.

15. This was the round where your Facebook malfunctioned. How worried were you that this would be interpreted as being inactive? And even moreso, how frightened were you to see you were one vote away from being eliminated?

Like I said, I knew I hadn’t been eliminated before I saw the vote. Afterwards, I didn’t really mind. I’d have had a LOT to say if it had affected the outcome, but these things happen.

16. Speaking of that mistake, how amazed were you that everybody on the tribe backed up your Facebook malfunction? Even when one of their votes was turned against you?

Not really. I trusted my tribe. It was an honest blunder, nobody had anything to gain from trying to deny what I was claiming at the time.

17. I hadn’t had a chance to ask anybody from Daln about MGI. After seeing how it played out. . .what is your take on it? Nobody in the ORG universe had seen it been done for, and I am curious to see how somebody without other ORG twists to relate it to had responded to it. Do you think it impacted your game?

I like the gimmick very much. Much better than Redemption Island, although I would have perhaps chosen a different method for deciding who goes to MGI. Perhaps where the winning tribe chooses someone from the losing tribe to go there, or something.

18. In the fourth round you and Naomi got close. If you two ended up on the same tribe, what was the plan? I assume you two had big strategies brewing.

I wanted at least one person on the other tribe who would be, if not on my side, then at least on good terms with me. Either for a jury vote, to help me eliminate a threat further down the line or to keep me in case I didn’t have the numbers. It was made a lot easier by choosing someone who I could get on with so well. She’s absolutely awesome and I would have wanted to be her ally if we’d been on the same tribe.

19. Some of the conversations with Naomi had Serg in the chat as well. Were Serg and others involved in the strategies between you and Naomi?

Strategies? I don’t think it was about that. For me, it was more social. I liked her. We got on, it was fun for us to chat. If the others were worried, then they only needed come to me and I would explain that I was working on having someone who may help us all in future. At no point would I have ever considered flipping on my tribe. It’s a bad thing to do if you want to win.

20. Round five came. Candy flips over to your tribe and stuns everybody as she leads your tribe to victory. Not only that but Branden quits and Chance is voted out. Daln had a major advantage at that point. Did your strategy change as you went from a deficit to an advantage?

Well, it became more about trying to annihilate the other tribe, I guess. And keeping Candy sweet, of course. I wanted to work with Candy as well but I was too wary of approaching her, so I just did my usual “let’s chat about random stuff rather than the game.” Oh dear.

21. You guys add another immunity win. Albee goes. Did any of the players in the challenge know or get tempted by The Temptations? Did they get built by buttercups?

Yeah, Glo gave in to temptation, very naughty. I’m an absolute team player and it would have never crossed my mind to jeopardise my tribe like that. As soon as I realised what was needed to win, I stuck to it. I didn’t want to be the one responsible for losing the challenge.

22. What was the reaction to EVERYONE seeing that Gloria attempted to snag the rewards from the sidelines?

I was too forgiving, I guess. I hate confrontation, so I just tried to joke it off and act like it wasn’t a big deal –

gsp

but I was not impressed with that.

23. Now we get to a twist that is rarely done outside of my ORGs–everybody voting on whether or not they like to merge. Because Daln had the numbers, you guys ultimately got to decide. The majority tribe in the past ALWAYS decided to merge at first opportunity. What was your reasoning behind voting to not merge?

We felt confident that we would win the next challenge or two and therefore further dent the other tribe and maybe force them to play their idol before the merge. Unfortunately that didn’t go according to plan.

24. Did you feel manipulated into voting that way?

No. That’s how I would have voted. The others felt the same way so I was happy to go ahead with it. Whoops.

24. Tyler and Gloria were the only pair to not score a point as a pair in the Quoridor challenge. Tyler failed as a leader in the maze challenge. In round seven you could only have two out of seven players participate in the immunity challenge. . .and you guys chose Tyler and Gloria. You guys suffered your first setback since Tyler/Gloria nearly lost the Quoridor challenge for you guys, and Tyler couldn’t lead you in the maze. What was the process behind them getting the nod as opposed to two other players who have proven to be stronger than Tyler and Gloria in challenges? Especially one round after Gloria attempted to claim those rewards.

Well, when you put it THAT way … I guess they just had more time. I work full time and it’s an hour commute as well. Long, long days which don’t combine well with challenges. Glo and Tyler were willing to step up, so we let them.

25. Because of this loss Christian joined your tribe after losing his duel to Naomi. It is your first Tribal Council since Kayde went home. Eight out of eleven players are attending it. With two former Spau members, did every original Daln member feel safe?

26. Was anyone talking about or telling you that there all three hidden immunity idols in the game were amongst the eight tribe members?

I never feel safe, ever, but I’ll admit I wasn’t that worried going in. There was Candy, there was Christian, and I didn’t properly understand the rules of the idol. Had I known, I would have stuck with the plan to send Tyler to MGI. Had I known he was about to betray me, I wouldn’t have cared about the risk of him being eliminated

27. Christian played the idol for himself. Your vote reasoning was along the lines of “Christian, you would have been safe if you didn’t scramble. I’m sorry I couldn’t follow the plan, Tyler”. Can you explain all of that?

I told Christian not to scramble. I wanted to think of my options at that point and determine whether there was a better plan which would involve keeping him. Tyler made a plan for his own “alliance” to send him to MGI, but then Christian scrambled and I couldn’t trust him. So the plan fell through and I voted against him.

28. Did you think Christian had the idol or would play the idol? Was there a plan in place if he did?

I didn’t think he had it. I thought if he did play it then it would work like a proper HII. Whoops.

29. Did anyone on the tribe talk about the unique rules regarding the hidden immunity idols that made them different from the TV show?

Nope. I didn’t realise until after it was played.

30. In the re-vote it was you, Sergiu, Gloria, and Tyler. Gloria played her idol. It was a 2-1-1 vote. You voted for Gloria. Serg and Tyler voted for you. Gloria did not. Do you feel silly for not voting Tyler instead of Gloria? And why do you think Gloria attempted to spare you? Do you think Gloria’s idol had anything to do with it?

Glo’s idol had everything to do with it. We were scared to vote against her, but there’s no way I was going to betray Sergiu or Tyler. Bad karma, that’s why neither of them won this game I entertained the idea of myself and Tyler voting Sergiu instead, but decided it was better to at least attempt to take Glo out and then vote Sergiu out if I had to. I don’t think Glo attempted to spare me – I think the plan was to split the vote in that way in order to hide sub-alliances. I think all three knew that I would go, although I was kicking myself at the time for trusting Tyler rather than Glo. Whoops.

31. What are your thoughts on being on the receiving end on the effects of the unique hidden immunity idol rules? Or the fact it took two out of three to boot you? Happy to at least be the first juror?

It sucks and I hate it. I’m usually such a stickler for the rules and like to triple check things. Had I done my research my strategy would have been totally different. Happy to at least make the jury. Getting booted before the jury stage … for me that would just be horrifying. It IS horrifying, as I now know.

32. Who did you want to win? Who did you think would win? Who did you want to lose? Who did you think would lose?

Get ready for the Miss America answer I really held no grudges. It is a game, and I was outwitted, outplayed and outlasted fair and square. I would maybe say I wasn’t actively rooting for Brenda, Jason or Jeremy, but only because I barely knew them, not because of anything they did wrong. I left feeling angry with myself rather than with my tribemates, which I think I hinted at in my jury speech.

33. After all of these dang questions, if you have any other thoughts, please share ’em.

This game *amazed* me. Loved it. It’s a culture shock to not actually make the final five, but it’s interesting to see things from this side. I wish I’d known then what I know now, because I’d have played totally differently.

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for playing this game! P.S. It’s a bummer to hear you were just voted out second in an ORG

Thanks. It’s an even bigger bummer to BE voted out. Unrelated forum average placing: 2.25. Average ORG placing: 13.00 LOL. It’s heartbreaking. My previous worst result is more than twice as good as my new best result.
FINALLY!

5.8 SCWL 5 Episode 8: “The Reset Switch”

Date: June 24 – 30, 2013
Immunity Challenge VIII: Cross-Tribal Phase Scrambler Globetrotting
Inspired By: The only failed challenge from SCWL 4 and the
Winners: Daln and Tyler
Voted Out: Christian
Vote Distribution: 3-1-1
Between Who(m)?: Christian-Naomi-Candy

NO MERGE YET?

We are down to ten players but we have yet to merge. This may be the only time where we do not merge when it is down to eleven players. At the time I was savouring each additional minute that the merge is delayed. Even with Moray’s delayed boot, they still have a four-person advantage.

Daln is complicated by the fact that Christian and Candy are on the bottom of a tribe of six. Their only chance of survival at the next TC is if Naomi loses the duel or if Jeremy self-votes again and gets himself ejected from the game.

Brenda and Jason meanwhile know their only chance to win the game is to keep winning tribal immunity. They do not want to blow this one last ditch effort at a comeback.

THE MUTINY TRIGGER

Ah yes. The Mutiny Trigger. A twist introduced at the beginning of SCWL 4. One person from each tribe received one depending on how they finished in the first individual challenge. Ryan Huckla and Vincent received one. Because two Mutiny Triggers were in circulation, it is the only season where I didn’t plan a mutiny after the fourth Tribal Council.

Therefore I decided to balance it out in SCWL 5 by offering one Mutiny Trigger and one mutiny following the fourth Tribal Council.

On Opening Day Naomi claimed the Mutiny Trigger. I personally forgot that Naomi had the Mutiny Trigger once we reached the sixth round. I couldn’t really think of a scenario where it would be used, and Naomi didn’t send me any confessionals that indicated she was thinking about it at any point in the game.

Funny thing is that Naomi did forget about the Mutiny Trigger, and it was in the process of Spau figuring out how to rally that she dug through the messages and threads to discover she had it in her pocket. Right next to the fake idol.

DALN IN CHAOS

Because I couldn’t reveal the Mutiny Trigger use yet, we still had to go through the charade of figuring out which two Daln members would play against

This led to Christian and Candy wanting to play in the immunity challenge while the other four opposed them and tried to veto their request to play. This had never happened before. Ultimately we were going to rocks if an agreement could not be reached.

Needless to say it was hilarious to see all of this arguing when it really wouldn’t matter because. . .

THE TRIGGER IS PULLED

Wow. The Mutiny Trigger is finally used in this series. I thought the Medallion of Power would find company in terms of unused twists for the SCWL series. However, Naomi uses the Mutiny Trigger far later than I ever thought it could be used.

I couldn’t imagine a scenario where the Trigger could be pulled when as few as ten people remain in the game. As soon as the Trigger has been pulled it becomes clear that the Trigger is meant for Spau to even up this game.

CHRISTIAN MUTINIES

Of course Christian had to mutiny. He used his idol and received the highest number of votes. I knew Christian would mutiny. The only mystery surrounded whether or not Candy now feels permanently ostracized from all of the dynamics in Daln, and Spau looks a whole lot better to her now that Albee is gone.

CANDY MAKES HISTORY

Nobody has ever mutinied twice in the same season. I can’t think of too many ORGs where that has happened. Candy has now rejoined the tribe that she abandoned three rounds earlier. To me it seems impossible for her to re-integrate. If Spau does not win immunity, Candy will be out.

EVEN NUMBERS

Four original Daln versus four original Spau.

On MGI it’s one original Daln and one original Spau.

A season of SCWL has never been this even. If it were up to me I would have announced merge and seen a 5-5 deadlock play out.

But the players wanted to remain as two tribes. So we’ve gotta play out this round. Whichever side wins immunity will be up 5-4 where another chance to merge is on the horizon.
TRIBES AND MGI MAKE THIS ROUND EXTREMELY COMPLICATED

It doesn’t matter if Daln or Spau wins immunity, believe it or not. Because if Daln goes to Tribal Council and Naomi loses on MGI, suddenly Naomi goes home and Spau didn’t win immunity in the sense of the game.

Everything needs to line up perfectly. A situation like this can lead to people overthinking things and make some huge blunders. But I think everybody played this as a must-win situation.

CRYPTOGRAM CHALLENGE FROM SCWL 4 FIXED

The only challenge from SCWL 4 that failed badly enough to the point that I had to stop and restart it with entirely different rules. Last season I left the rules and criteria far too open-ended. This season the rules were tightened up.
a) They needed to pick from a list of 200 phrases
b)It had to be a minimum of five words.
c) Make potentially picking a phrase that overlaps in terms of the exact letter and word distribution apart of the challenge. For each possibility your opponent identifies, they score a point. Therefore, it’s up to the players to be careful.

Each player picked a phrase that somebody on the other tribe needed to decode and solve.

On MGI each player had to create two phrases as well as do the tiebreaker phase.

THE TIEBREAKER IS THE TRUE CHALLENGE

But I knew it would only be a matter of time before everybody would decode those phrases. The tiebreaker is where the real challenge lies.

So what the heck was this? Well, in honour of the fact that the series premiere of The Amazing Race Canada was premiering that week (the finale just aired two nights ago), and decided to do one of my geographic-obsessive challenges.

One person from each tribe would be responsible for the tiebreaker. They must research ten plane rides and ride it for as many kilometres as they could. They would receive a bonus of one thousand kilometres for each city they landed in that was visited as a Detour in The Amazing Race 3.

Oh, and they could only cross the equator twice.

THE TIEBREAKER RIVALRY WAS FITTING

Guess who played against each other in the tiebreaker? That’s right. Candy and Michelle. Given what transpired in the previous round, I couldn’t pick two bigger rivals at that point in the game. Both wanted to win immunity very badly. Neither Spau nor Daln would want to begin to think about who to boot somebody from their own tribe.

WHY I DESIGNED THE CHALLENGE THIS WAY

I wanted to see if people would invest too much time into the tiebreaker and ultimately flounder in the easiest part of the challenge. On the other hand, they could also put too much time in the cryptogram part and not research the tiebreaker portion well enough.

FOUR OF THE PHRASES OVERLAPPED

I didn’t even pay attention to the phrases that people were picking. I merely copied and pasted the phrase codes. It turns out that Christian and Gloria received the same phrase that they sent out. They probably thought I was messing with them once they finished decoding it. It appeared all phrases had been decoded properly. But one person screwed up. One person screwed up and made me have to triple-check that I wasn’t sent a screwed up phrase.

JASON COSTS SPAU A CHALLENGE

And just when Spau had everything rolling. . .Jason makes one little oversight. They’re going to Tribal Council. The only question left is if Tyler will join them or Naomi. That will determine which tribe goes up 5-4 as we enter a possible merge.

DUEL RESULTS

Tyler and Naomi didn’t pull a Jason, so we go on to the geographical tiebreaker. I triple-checked both routes because I knew the stakes of the challenge.

And the winner is. . .Tyler! By about six or seven thousand kilometres. Both had 90-something thousand kilometres. Tyler had an excellent strategy and pulled it off. I am not sure if it was a Daln effort or a Tyler effort, but I give Tyler major kudos for pulling off the win.

That’s right. Because of Jason, all of Daln is safe. They didn’t blow it. Jeremy gets to keep his idol. I doubt Jeremy would pass off the idol to Tyler if he had to go to Spau.

SPAU REUNITED. . .AT TRIBAL COUNCIL. IN TROUBLE.

I felt bad for Spau. I knew a merge was likely next round. They will be down 5-4. Because we have two really tight five-person alliances that have been together since day one, and since a 5-person alliance is a small enough alliance to go to the end of the game, I didn’t sense much movement on the horizon.

But in the meantime we need to determine the next victim.

CANDY GONE?

She mutinied twice. Yes, Christian spent three rounds on MGI and a TC on Daln, but he played Spau’s tribal idol to benefit the overall tribe. In fact, I thought the one person guaranteed to be safe was Christian because of his sacrifice.

Who knew a guy named Christian would make a sacrifice for his tribe.

OR JASON?

The only person besides Candy who I thought was at risk this Tribal Council was Jason. He has never been too strong in challenges, and he is responsible for their loss. Spau just needs five votes to avoid a merge next round and will have yet another chance to rally and regain control.

Therefore the vote in my mind is between trust in the form of Candy, and challenge weakness in the form of Jason. Brenda, Naomi, and Christian should all be safe. Well, Brenda did secretly take those rewards and cost Spau a crucial immunity challenge, but nobody knows so that really isn’t an issue. Naomi played her Mutiny Trigger and hasn’t made any waves. And Christian, while not in the clique of Brenda-Naomi-Jason, has done nothing to demonstrate he cannot be trusted. He just came off a heroic move and is guaranteed immunity once we hit merge.

BLIIIIINDSIDE

First blindside: Christian self-voted. That came out of nowhere considering how involved in the game he has been for the past several rounds.
Second blindside: The fact that Christian freakin’ went. Jason didn’t even receive any votes!
Third blindside: There was vote changes and three separate people voted for.

Naomi voted Candy and Brenda voted Naomi. Jason and Candy voted Christian.

It was a 3-1-1 vote. Christian said it wouldn’t have really mattered because he wouldn’t have voted Candy or Naomi.

My mind was blown as I went through the votes and thought they were playing Opposite Day. It just came out of nowhere. Jason cites that Christian has connections to Daln, but that hasn’t really come out in these episodes. In addition, won’t every connection be critical if you enter a merge down in numbers?

And THAT is what makes Survivor so complex.

CHRISTIAN GOES AFTER A HUGE SEQUENCE OF MOVES

I know. I’m shocked too. If we merged at eleven, Christian would still be alive in this game. Instead he had to use up an idol and go to a Tribal Council with his only allies that he probably shouldn’t be vulnerable for in the first place.

TO MERGE OR NOT TO MERGE

And we have another merge vote next round! Will we delay the merge by two more rounds or will the true individual game begin? Or can an individual game even begin if we do merge considering it’s a tight fivesome versus a tight foursome? So many variables still in play!

CANDY,

FYI- I knew that Christian had the idol the entire time. I knew that the tribal council would be null & void if he played it. I knew that everyone was scrambling to get me to go to MGI. The only person that lied to me was Michelle. Now I’m in an awesome position to vote Gloria out (because she is just annoying the s— out of me) and get Sergiu to MGI, considering Sergiu seems to be the leader here.

This. Is. AWESOME.

I shall mutiny back to Spau

My vote is for Christian. I’m sorry, Chris, but you didn’t give me a straight answer on who to vote. I have a feeling that we’re not as close as you pretend we are.

Christian, Christian, Christian, Christian, Christian, Christian, Christian, Christian

CHRISTIAN,

hey, I have a question

ME: Yes?

Sure you;ve answered this, but I guess this will be further clarifcation for a dummy like me

let’s say a phrase has a LOT of single letters

does it matter if they’re identified correctly, or does it matter, and it comes down to luck?

for instance (making this up) = here is !@#@

e’s are obvious, but h and r aren’t. would they be considered interchangeable?

or is this what you mentioned about multiple solutions?

*end of question*

ME: Yeah, that’s what I meant about multiple solutions. If a phrase has the same number of letters, and identical letter distribution. So if there were two phrases, and they both had the same number of letters, and the same number of each letter, they would be considered interchangeable.

hrm

ME: Did that answer your question?

I’m only referring to solving a single phrase, one with 6 or 7 different single letters.

ME: Oh, you mean figuring out what each symbol represents?

yes!

ME: Rather than the overall phrase? Oh yeah. All I need is the phrase.

Oh?

you don’t need the breakdowns?

ME: No.

like H=? A = &

oh…

damn

thanks

ME: Makes things easier, I would assume lol.

Yes. Yes it does.

Okay boss man…

“Never cast a clout until may be out”

I can’t believe I got the damn one I sent.

there’s your answer.

Hell, put that in confessional too. That is… hilarious.
My answer, fixed just in case you’re a stickler for punctuation or whatever:

Never cast a clout until May be out

(or rather, capitalization)

ooh, I have a question: If we merged next round, would that mean my advantages in that challenge would be null as I wouldn’t need to compete?

(one is I’m safe when 9 people are left in the game, one is I can sit someone out, and the other is I get an additional advantage in the challenge)
Or would I just compete anyway?
ME: Nope, your rewards will still be used.

So if there’s no merge next round, you’ll be immune regardless of the outcome of the challenge.

awesome

ME: So if there’s no merge, you sit someone out from the opposing tribe, and you still get your additional advantage.

I see.

Knew about the immunity thing, as that wasn’t reliant on the merge.

Just wanted to make sure I would get full value for my rewards when merge eventually does happen, and that would be separate from the immunity

thanks for answering

ME: Oh right, forgot about the wording of the other reward. Forgot there was the post-merge condition. For some reason I had the 9-person immunity thing still in my head. Once you merge, the advantage and sit out rewards will activate.

Yep. Immunity at 9, advantage at first merge challenge, and ability to sit someone out of first merge challenge

ME: Yes.

Kay.

No!

ah, my faukt

fault

*confessional*

I had considered self voting. now I actually did it by accident

Bad i nthat if I got more votes I go home

good in that I kept my word to candy

and

i;m a candidate for mgi

wWell, just read the results. made that confessional pointless

*final words*

Wasn’t going to vote candy and wasn’t going to vote Naomi. Oh well.
ME: Yeah, I couldn’t figure if you looked at the results or not yet.

I hadn’t.

Hell if I had voted someone, would have been Jason, so I would have been out.

regardless

Damn and didn’t even get to that immunity!

that’s my only regret

ME: Didn’t even cross my mind that you’d be going this round, honestly. I had the announcement you had immunity all typed already.

Ha

Yknow, I had a plan too

Depending on a merge or not.

so I assume my items die with me, yes?

ME: Yep. They will be buried with you in your grave like an Egyptian Pharoah. Granted no other sacrifices will be made.

am I buried with vodka?

or at least schnapps?

ME: The cemetery doesn’t have a liquor license, sadly.

Well damn it.

Ah well

How do ya think I did for a newbie?

ME: Very well.

had a great time.

and this close to another great plan!

I’d feel better if I arrogantly proclaimed myself to be the “Most dangerous person in the game”, and then got voted out

Some karma/irony…delish

is that true..cause i saw where moray won something but the thing when I posted on the wall you never said i won an advantage..am i right about that

Yeah why didn’t i win an advantage for posting on the wall? when you did the restructure challenge curious why I did not win that..I was first one to post!

ME: Only people participating in the challenge were eligible to claim any rewards.

ok gotcha thanks I thought you had said that but thought I missed something…lol Christian messaged me that I had advantage reward lol and I knew I wasn;t nuts that I didnlt lol but then doubted myself thinking I had missed something..

Thanks Logan

LOgan I have question for the next challenge ok?

ME: Yes?

you were supposed to laugh for me..quit being so hard lol

lets party down Logan!

**GLORIA INSERTS PICTURE OF HER DANCING WITH NA ONKA**

ME: Once Saturday occurs, I am free to do so lol.

EDITOR’S NOTE: That was the day where I wrote two exams, tasted alcohol for the first time, and dressed up as Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction.

lol

Hey Logan we are having dispute over numbe of words in phrase we esch pick

3 people pick phrase corret?

ME: Yep, three people each pick a phrase.

ME: Yes. 5-Infinity. Just need to have at least five words.

ok thanks

confessional: Brain fart! lsat tribal of me, Sergiu, Moray and Tyler blew my brain circuits! and this dam challenge with phrases and symobols and all is causing another brain fart blow out..confessional June 25th over and out

Confessional: June 25th today jason messaged me and said Glo come to Spau tribe! I felt death soon as I read the message but if we don;t win this dam pharases and symbols thing death may come to me soon any ways. today Christian and candy mutinied back to Spau tribe. I wrote jason and told him to throw their challenge and get rid of his enemy lol He said he was tight with christian.

Big $ is our symbol for the BIG 4 alliance of Michelle Sergiu jeremy and me GLO GLO!

nobody misses candy over here at all they are glad she mutinied and the tribe was going to vote her off and sadly send christian to MGI…Tribe was actually gonna throw the challenge..

we would hav all mutinied over there but we did not know how fast they did it and did not want to leave any of us 4 behind..

we thought it would have been brilliant to all 4 mutiny to their tribe together lol

MICHELLE,

ME: Your journey ends much earlier than what you outlined. Each connection counts as its own flight. So your journey ends much earlier than Honolulu. You’re only allowed to board ten planes.

ME: *Each connection to a different plane counts as its own flight, I mean.

But when you make a booking to fly anywhere your ticket has final destination on it., and the syop overs are secondary. You did not specify this. I do not have enough time now to make another one. I made 10 plane journeys. I have to dispute this. From Australia, this is how we live. We only call a trip to Europe one plane journey, even though we might change planes. You didnt explain this or specify this. Can I have another 12 hours to rectify this and make another plan, taking into account this new rule?

You need to understand that you did not grow up in Australia….one of the few places in the world where one plane journey to Europe or America has a stop over, yet is called one plane journey. I dispute this heavily.
Logan?

ME: Yes, I’ll give you an additional 12 hours.

NAOMI,

ME: Once I announce the results eight hours from now (enough time for everyone on Daln to read TC and have the player know they are going to MGI), I will announce you are pulling the Mutiny Trigger.

awesome thank you
and woo for this round haha

so do you rehide idols?

ME: Nope. Three and only three idols.

sweet 🙂

ME: Need a name for who will receive the eight clues for the final idol, by the way.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #8

(BRENDA)-(CANDY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(JASON)-(NAOMI)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)-(MORAY)

You have until 100pm eastern Sunday to answer these questions and cast your vote (it’s Canada Day weekend here and know it may be tough to be here enough to vote).

BRENDA,

1. After eight rounds and two mutinies later. . .this tribe has the exact same configurement as it did day one. All that’s missing is three torches that have already been put out. Can you think of a time where players of their own free will have migrated between different camps over eight rounds and find themselves exclusively alone with the same people over halfway into the game?

Uhm … what? I’m not sure I follow the question … but no I’ve never seen this much movement in one game ..

2. As of last round, you and Jason were the only two people in this camp. Suddenly the majority of the people in camp are people who have joined in the past 48 hours. How does that affect the strategy for the vote? Do you think you and Jason get a bye for exclusively being Spau members for eight straight rounds?

Jason and I work well together.. I don’t think us being alone here together means anything because we were in constant contact with the other members who weren’t here.

3. Do you think this tribe is close to the point where whoever gets voted out will feel really betrayed or is the tribe close in the sense in that whoever is voted out will depart on good terms with the other four as they head to the jury?

This tribe is close beyond the game and no one will take it personally if they get voted out.

CANDY,

1. You mutinied to the opposing tribe. . .then mutinied back. Do you think your loyalty to this tribe is questioned?

I think my loyalty is questioned by both tribes. Daln made it crystal clear that I would never be a part of their tribe– That no one would– So I came back to Spau in hopes of developing stronger relationships.

2. Do you feel more at home on this tribe now that Albee has been eliminated?

Yes, I do. And because Branden is no longer here to attack me. I lost someone I considered a good friend because of this game.

3. How do you think the tribe should treat you knowing you willingly stepped off that mat to leave this tribe in the first place?

No, we absolutely should not merge until we’ve got the numbers. lol – And we certainly don’t at this moment in time. Hopefully whomever goes to MGI will be able to kick some serious ass and we’ll be able to get the numbers in our favor once again.

Wait a minute… Once again? No. Spau has never had the numbers in its favor… That should read “in our favor for the first time…”

CHRISTIAN,

1. You survived a Tribal Council on Daln along with Candy. Did you and Candy agree to mutiny back to this tribe in tandem?

Pretty much. It was part of the plan.

2. After this Tribal Council, Spau will fall to four members total. This tribe rallied once. How will it be able to do so again?

It can with the right plan, crafted by an insane man. Stay tuned.

3. As we fall to nine contestants after this round, I am sure your focus is on what to do when the merge begins. Do you think it’s best for this tribe to merge? Do you think everyone is eager for a merge?

Personally… I think we need… one day more to revolution.

JASON,

1. Your name is pretty much synonymous with this immunity challenge. You were the only one to miss the phrase. Do you think you will be held accountable for it during this Tribal Council in the same way that Chance and Albee were held accountable for their errors at the previous two Tribal Councils?

The odds of me at least going to MGI are pretty high right now, but I mean, I’ve proven time and time again that I’m an asset to the tribe, and it’s up to everyone else if I should be punished for it or not.

2. Do you think there is strategizing to not only avoid being voted out but to avoid MGI? Because MGI could still be in play for another round if the tribes don’t merge. How terrified would you be if you were told right now that you’re going to MGI?

I wouldn’t be too fazed, other than this challenge i’ve been doing really well, so I think I’d stay on MGI for a lil bit.

3. What do you think is the status on hidden immunity idols in this game?

i haven’t been told who has one, but I mean, Glo played one, Christian played one, how many others could there really be?

NAOMI,

1. You pulled the Mutiny Trigger. If it weren’t for that, this Tribal Council would consist of just you, Brenda, and Jason. What was the idea behind pulling the Mutiny Trigger, and did you feel it put you in a very risky position knowing you were not guaranteed to win or be returned to Spau?

Nope. It was to make sure we could keep our people safer longer. It’s what I wanted it for from day 1. To cause a mutiny to protect us if we were split and in trouble. Plus the longer I waited the less chance there was to use it.

2. In fact, much of the challenge didn’t matter who won or lost. It was a matter of you avoiding a trip with Daln to TC or Tyler avoiding a trip with Spau to TC. Did those combinations enter your mind as the challenge played out? Would you be DOA if Daln had lost the immunity challenge instead?

Of course it did. And pretty sure I’d be gone if I’d gone to Daln. But again, you never know in Survivor.

3. Do you think an individual game will ever be played if there was a merge with Daln and Spau members?

I hope so. It has to become individual at some point.

Okay, when you vote, please do so in the following manner?

VOTE: (LOGAN. . .or should I say, !@#$%)
REASON: I’ve had enough of you.

Okay. If anyone wants to play a hidden immunity idol, you’ll let me know privately when you vote.

Everybody is fair game. Between now and 100pm eastern Sunday, it is time to vote. Spau tribe, you’re up.

TC VOTING

BRENDA,

I’m voting out Naomi

CANDY,

It’s time for you to go.

CHRISTIAN: Hooray.

ME: Hooray to the four of you for surviving what seemed to be a confusing vote.

As I said to Daln, it seems the lesson here is that the decisions you make at the start of the round may come back to help you or haunt you earlier than expected. No decision is easy when you reach this stage of the game.

And another big decision will be ahead of you very soon.

Candy will head to MGI, but who knows, that may all just be temporary.

CHRISTIAN EXIT INTERVIEW

1. I may as well quickly cover this. How did you get into SCWL 5?

One day, I was going through groups to delete. One group led me to another… and here I am. Discovered ORGs that day

2. Were you aware that other players could potentially have pre-game alliances?

Going into the game? No.

3. Opening Day. How painful was it to claim a reward in the opening challenge right away and watch as nearly thirty minutes pass by before two captain spots were taken. Do you think people intentionally avoided the captain’s role? Do you think Gloria wanted that captain’s role?

I got my reward relatvely quickly. I saw a captain’s spot was still up for grabs, so I gave the answer to the person that had been the friendliest and talked the most to me – Branden.

4. Only an hour into Opening Day and you make an enemy in the form of Albee. If I recall correctly, he wanted you to pick Serg but instead you pick Jason. So why pick Jason? And why go against Albee’s issues? Did Serg spit in your Cheerios before Opening Day?

Naomi messaged me, asing to pick Jason, who I was assured was strong. Hard to resist a pretty lady.

5. The rogue vote idol is something rarely seen in ORGs. What was your strategy in order to obtain it?

To obtain it in two consecutive trbal councils. All part of a larger plan to advance myself and my alliance. By the way, I had their approval.

6. How long did it take to work out this strategy?

To come up with the plan? Five minutes. Total time to convince my alliance? Thirty minutes or so combined.

7. Branden seemed to be gunning for you early on. Why do you think he was targeting you?

For one, I was a newbie couldn’t be controlled. But mainly, I threw a rogue vote at him.

8. It seemed like you never had a close ally on Spau. I find this interesting because you rogue voted at both Tribal Councils in rounds two and four. Therefore, you never directly targeted anyone. It was essentially a “no vote” by proxy. Do you think because you never got to reveal your hand that nobody was able to fully trust you?

Why did I seem like such a loner? Maybe that’s a good thing… Brenda, Naomi, and Jason knew my plans. The real question should be, how did I get hooked up with them? One, I followed orders. Two, active. Three, proved myself in that first immunity challenge.

9. In round two Kodi joined your tribe after throwing a duel. Branden and Kodi had a big fight. Albee was siding with Branden while already feuding with you and Kodi. How come you didn’t want to work with the trio of Kodi, Candy, and Chance at the time? It seemed like Branden and Albee would be your two biggest threats. Or was your only agenda to gain the rogue vote idol?

My only agenda was to get that idol. Not that I wasn’t privy to all the scheming. People tended to let me in on all the dirty business.

10. Kodi goes and Albee heads to MGI. How did you feel about your position in the tribe at that point?

Secure enough that even if my name was thrown next, I’d have the votes to go to MGI. Which would be part of the plan.

11. Your tribe won two out of three immunity challenges. Do you think they strongly contributed to their success considering two out of three losses occurred when you were on MGI?

Hard to say. But I’d like to think one of those losses would be a victory if I was around.

12. You seemed to be more into the twists and strategy than the social game. How did you approach the MGI twist? How could it be beneficial? How could it be a weakness?

I knew if landed on MGI and won, I could feed the clues back to my alliance. And it would be win-win if I lost. If I lost, I could wind up on Spau, where they wouldn’t vote me out. Or I’d wind up on Daln, where they would screw themselves over by voting for me. Which again, was part of the plan.

13. Now round four. It is one of the most memorable rounds in SCWL because of what happens with Danial, but under all of that you pick up Spau’s individual immunity idol. You’re the first of the three people I get to talk to who held the idol. So you know you have it. What was the first idea that popped into your head in terms of its use.

I had already planned it’s possible usage five tmes over by the time I actually obtained the idol. By that point, since I knew I was going to MGI, it was just to sit on the idol until I landed back on a tribe. If it was Daln, then you knew how things were going to go. As I stated, the plan was in effect.

14. You simultaneously claim the individual immunity idol and sent to MGI. Branden and Danial voted against you. Did you know about that plan? What’s your overall reaction to it?

I knew how their votes would go. I knew how my alliance would vote. I just needed Candy’s vote, someone who had been talking to for awhile.

15. Suddenly you and Albee are together on MGI. Did you tell him or anyone else about the individual immunity idol yet?

I didn’t tell Albee much. As for people who knew, it was Brenda, Jason, Naomi, and Candy.been stated before, but Candy was aware of the plan, even if she wasn’t quite associated with with my main allance.

16. Did a thought cross your mind to “work” the outcome of the duel? Or did you and Albee truly give it your all to make it the first legitimate duel of the season?

I wasn’t going to “work” anything at that point. I didn’t mind guaranteed safety.

17. Did you wait until you were on MGI before communicating with anyone on Daln? Were you developing strategies to survive a Tribal Council on Daln?

I may have had some brief contact before MGI, but I started talking more once on the island. I was testign the waters, so to speak.

18. You win the duel against Albee in round five. Were you fully intending to sweep your way on MGI to the merge and keep your idol close to you?

I pretty much knew that would be impossible.

19. You’re on MGI. Candy mutinied to Daln. How did that affect your game?

If I landed on Daln, I’d have a potential ally in my scheme.

20. And of course Branden quitting followed by Chance’s error to lead to his boot. On one hand, two people that would be against you are both out. On the other hand, these are two of your tribemates. Your assessment of how that impacted your game?

Spau was screwed, and it’d take a miracle. Or at least… an insane plan.

21. Round six. The weirdest challenge of the season. You and Albee pick up a bunch of rewards, ncluding your guaranteed immunity from the first merged vote. Do you think people on MGI had free reign to pick up as many rewards without risk?

I have no clue. I don’t even know how won what I did.

22. Did the rewards help you to make a case to guarantee your slot in the merge? Because on a tribe with dwindling numbers, they would need every reward and advantage possible.

I thought they would. But I believe they made me look dangerous.

23. Albee is voted out. You receive a new opponent in the form of Naomi. Spau was down to you, Naomi, Brenda, and Jason. I’m guessing you thought you would be screwed if you lost the duel and walked into a tribe of Brenda and Jason?

If anyone was going to be screwed, it would have been them if I landed on a tribe of just them.

24. But guess what? The other nine players voted on a merge first. This twist has been around virtually every season when it gets down to eleven people. Was there any talk of it beforehand or did the twist take all of you by surprise?

There wasn’t too much talk of it.

25. How terrified were the four of you? If Daln agrees to merge, did the four of you concede it was game over?

It would have been, yes.

26. If there is a merge or Spau loses immunity again, do you think there is a zero percent chance of Candy flopping back to Spau?

I believe so.

27. Did you or anyone on Spau influence Daln’s decision to not merge? Why do you think they agreed to keep the two tribes?

I’ll never understand that decision, to be honest.

28. And I imagine all of you except Michelle and Gloria chose to begin the jury at eleven because they have souls?

Soul? Me? Ha!

29. So for the first time in SCWL the tribes do not merge at eleven people. It’s the Wordsmith challenge. I know Tyler and Gloria did their best against Brenda and Jason. Meanwhile I have a feeling you didn’t do your best against Naomi? Take us through idol + Mutiny Trigger ploy.

Had every confidence Brenda and Jason would take it. So I just needed to get my butt to Daln and take them down. Early on, I had talked to the alliance about Naomi using her Mutiny at the right moment. And the right moment was coming soon. I’d lose, head to Daln, and exploit the hell out of the HII rules. hardest trick wasn’t getting the votes, but making sure Candy was one of the people safe from losing.

30. What happens if Spau lost the challenge? You enter as the outsider of a 3-person tribe with a hidden individual immunity idol in your pocket.

I am sure you thought about being in this scenario with Brenda and Jason i the big risk blew up in your face. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

31. But Daln loses. It seemed like many people on Daln wanted to spare you but you “started scrambling”. Tell us your strategy in terms of dealing with Candy, playing the idol, and getting the votes on you. It seemed like you may have confessed about your idol to Jeremy because he mysteriously self-voted to avoid your idol.

I needed a tie, or the majority of votes. So, I had to make waves without looking suspicious. Moray told me if I kept low, I *might* be fine. And I’m sure pigs were flying that day too! Even if he was sincere, like I said… needed those votes against me. I never confessed anything to Jeremy, but I’m certain he was perceptive. As for Candy, I just laid the situation out plainly to her. Either way, I was going to be safe. If she followed my lead on this, she would be too. She trusted me, and I believe I repaid her trust.

32. When Candy discovered that Michelle must have voted against her, I am guessing you co-ordinated her committment to re-join Spau?

I did. She didn’t really trust either side that much… but she had me. And I had proven myself.

33. Moray, Naomi’s link, is taken out. I doubt you had much to do with that relationship. So the next round the Mutiny Trigger is pulled. You and Candy jump to Daln. Suddenly there’s four of you on Spau and four on Daln, and one from each tribe on MGI. I am guessing the split between Spau and Daln was permanent after that?

Yes, it was. And it was glorious.

34. Not only did the right tribe need to win but you needed Naomi/Tyler to be on your tribe and eliminate the outsider. Ever been in a situation like that in ORGs where multiple conditions needed to be met to keep power?

As this was my first time… no.

35. Jason screws up and Naomi loses. You are at the hub of this tribe given what has transpired. Candy is the outsider. Jason screwed up. Naomi came from MGI. You should be crowned the hero. But a super bizarre majority vote split occurs and sends you home. Why do you think that happened? And do you think they would have kept you if the idol was still in your pocket as a merge was inevitable?

No idea why it happened. But stuff happens. I wish we had double checked Jason’s stuff, and I wish Naomi had asked Candy for help, something she was reluctant to do. I probably should have just voted Candy.

36. How much of a bummer is it to know you were guaranteed to go deep if you merged at 11, thus giving you individual immunity from the round 6 reward, plus the idol in your pocket, and potential individual immunity wins down the road?

With that last immunity loss, it would have only gotten me so far. So I’m fine with how things went down for my first ORGs.

37. Yeah. It’s over. Who did you want/think would win? Who did you want/think would lose?

Naomi, Brenda, or Michelle, to be honest. I didn’t think it was a guy’s game. And I don’t care about anyone losing.

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

I came, I saw, I kicked some ass. I also pulled rabbits out of my ass. Not bad for a first-timer, right? On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for playing this game! Thanks for having me!

NEXT TIME ON SCWL 5:

– Another merge vote looms, and yet again Daln’s original members have a one-person advantage. Will they roll the dice once again to put the nail in the coffin or solidify their trust for one another to go to the end?

– A twist on the previous season’s opening post-merge immunity challenge plays out in the most unexpected way possible as the challenge is more difficult than anyone anticipated.

– Tribal Council will leave you on the edge of your seat as a torch is snuffed by a one-vote difference.

5.9 SCWL 5 Episode 9: “Sittin’ Ducks”

Date: June 30 – July 6 2013

Immunity Challenge IX: Combine and Cancel

Inspired/Copied From: The first post-merge challenge from SCWL 4. Only difference is that players are responsible for identifying the mistakes of others.

Immunity Challenge IX Winner: Gloria. De fault. The two sweetest words in the English language.

Voted Out: Candy

Vote Distribution: 5-4

Who Was Voted For?: Candy-Jeremy

Fake Immunity Idol Played: Naomi on Brenda. Didn’t seem to matter anyway.

Are You Sad MGI ended at merge?: I don’t know. You tell me. I’d love feedback on that.

SPAU KNOWS THEY ARE DOWN

No kidding. Candy and Tyler are on MGI. Candy is preparing to deliver a Crushing effort of her own against Tyler if there is another duel. Spau is down 5-4. They really don’t want to merge quite yet because the chances of flipping a Daln member is minimal. We are in the same situation as we were in two rounds ago. Daln has all of the power to decide whether to delay the merge once more.

WE MERGE

By a vote of 5-4 I believe (no surprise), we merged. Daln was ready to begin the post-merge phase of the game. We were so close to having another two rounds of pre-merge play. Oh well. If Daln tightly sticks together, we could have a boring few rounds.

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE

The immunity challenge was a direct copy of what we did as the first post-merge challenge last season except with a few major differences–

1) Instead of re-arranging letters of Survivor names in their boot order, they were canceling out letters of Survivor finalists.
2) They were responsible for figuring out how other people screwed up the following day.

3 WAY BATTLE PLUS 6 SITTING OUT

This was surprising. I expected more people to participate. Granted in the past we typically have around half play in the first three post-merge challenges. . .but this was a bit extreme. Plus Gloria only got three names in, and Brenda’s file corrupted forcing her to put in far fewer names than she anticipated. So Candy and Brenda appeared to be the two frontrunners to win immunity, and Gloria being a longshot if Candy and Brenda screwed up.

INDIVIDUAL IMMUNITY FORMAT CHANGE

In the past, I typically let the top two finishers receive individual immunity if it’s a tie prior to “day 33”. Because Andrew and Clayton abused this rule to reach day 33 intact, and essentially screw over Mark/Renee/Luke/Ryan/Heeral’s chance to overthrow Clayton/Jessica/Andrew, I decided to reduce it to one talisman no matter what. In addition, hidden immunity idols are in play too which could give a ridiculous number of people immunity from Tribal Council.

In the past few years, I have noticed that a common ORG twist is to have multiple talismen given out in a challenge or hidden immunity idols constantly re-hidden. I have come to realize that it can really paralyze people’s games, and suddenly Survivor becomes “6 people are immune, 2 people are vulnerable”.

In fact, KJ messaged me about one of her games six months ago where she used the rules for the idol from the TV show leading 2 people to cancel out votes, 2 people wearing a necklace, and her asking me what proper procedure should be.

In my game the only way this scenario occurs is if a hidden immunity idol is used correctly twice in the same Tribal Council, and the votes are spread to the point where two people remain behind and one of them is wearing individual immunity and sends the other player home by default. Everybody has to be really skilled (and unlucky) in terms of deciphering the proper timing in order for this to occur.

FUNNY RESULTS

Gloria was confused by the challenge and tried to send additional names after the deadline. . .but somehow wins anyway. This challenge was MUCH tougher than I had anticipated for the players. Brenda and Candy screwed up nearly half of the thirty names that they submitted. This is an intense mental exercise, and I have no doubts that this will be copied as an endurance challenge for other people’s own ORGs. It doesn’t matter if you put six hours into it because you could have screwed up within the first twenty minutes. . .which is exactly what happened to candy and Brenda.

And since there were no other opponents, Gloria’s busy personal life that came into play during the challenge appeared to be a benefit. Sending three names in the space of fifteen minutes gave her the necklace.

Suddenly it sucks to be Candy and Brenda because neither Naomi nor Jason appear to be threats.

NAOMI’S FAKE IDOL

Naomi didn’t figure out that her idol was fake. Jeremy must be giggling away in a corner. She played the fake idol on one of two people who was bound to receive votes. So if it were a real idol, she made a pretty legitimate play. The only way it could have been better is if Candy or Brenda took a dive during the challenge to guarantee which one would be receiving votes.

This isn’t as bad as RyLis’ play who rejected Elvera’s offer to tie up the vote (no pun intended I swear), and play what he thinks is a real idol for somebody else while letting one go unused in his pocket during the most important vote of the game.

SERG ON THE FENCE?

I didn’t even see that Serg was the swing vote in Spau’s eyes until after the fact. Serg’s social game was top notch as he not only made himself the centre of Daln, but was trying to make himself the centre of tribal communications between Daln and Spau.

He prevented Spau from asking anyone else to flip by promising he would vote out Jeremy. Of course, everyone on Daln knew this was just a ploy to ensure the 5-4 majority. So who takes the fall?

CANDY’S ROLLER COASTER GAME COMES TO AN END

The Candy Crush Saga is complete. Candy did a heckuva lot. She was at the centre of conflict with Albee and Branden. Candy mutinied not once but twice. She was one of the biggest challenge dominators of the season, and likely could have gone on to win a couple more immunities if it weren’t for screwing up on her first answer. We are now down to ice cold players.

But it seems anyone who is from Spau is doomed unless one of them goes on a big immunity run. When numbers are 5-4, you definitely have to pick off one of the tight “4”. And when numbers are 5-3, you’ll want to pick off one more unless trust is lost.

So can Daln fracture? Will 4th and 5th figure out their own position within the five? Or will it be yet another case in Survivor where an early 5-person alliance is formed and is unwilling to make any changes? We saw it in SCWL 1 and 2. Undoubtedly we could see it again here in SCWL 5 as loyalties have been well defined for quite some time except for Candy who had previously been a variable.

In other words, Brenda appears to be in a huge world of trouble.

ROUND 9 CONFESSIONALS

BRENDA,

I don’t want to merge

Ugh .. I did your challenge but something happened when I sent it here so I could check it before submitting it … all I have is a file full of garbage

I’m so not doing it again – not like I’d even have time and I won’t be home to get the file until tonight.

So – sorry – I didn’t want you to think I hadn’t done the challenge ..

But on the off chance that you told me I had this power and I forgot

I’m going to sit out Jeremy

I know this is going to shock you

But I’m confused …

Part two? Only 3 people did this?

Bunch of slackers … here I was feeling like a total s—

So … my reasoning for why these are wrong (candy’s answers obviously)

The first one is how it should be – the second is what Candy submitted ..

#1 – missed removing a T

#8 – missed removing the R in Mariano – to go with the second R in richard

#10- Not sure if this counts or not but the order she removed is wrong (if this doesn’t count make sure you don’t count the one where I did the same thing in my list )

#16 – She paired him with Todd Herzog who was the winner that season – he should have been paired with Courtney Yates who was the runner up.

#26 – She spelled Whechel wrong … all the H’s should be removed when it’s spelt right

#28 – She forgot to remove the D’s

Ugh … I read that wrong … Can I change the one I submitted or is it too late?

#1 – missed removing a T

#8 – missed removing the R in Mariano – to go with the second R in richard

#28 – She forgot to remove the D’s

These would be the 3 I submit if I’m allowed to change …

Doesn’t matter anyway I’m out cuz I made mistakes too

ME: It’s gonna be a weird challenge result to say the least lol.

CANDY,

I choose not to merge.

MOTHERF—ER. I can’t believe I f—ed up the FIRST name. What is wrong with me??? Goddammit.

You know, it really should be the person with the least amount of errors, because we could have given you the list in ANY order.

GLORIA,

this vote tyler really wanted Brenda out but majority went with voting candy.

I brought to Michelle’s attention that Jeremy says he has idol which I elieve is true. Also told Michelle that idol has to get flushed out soon or it could kill us if we get towqrd final 4 or 5

so if everybody does what they say and no flippers their should be 5 votes on candy but should be intersting to see what happens

is there an idol over there is anybodies game!

things are gonna hit higher notes soon and even sooner if idol is palyed by the Spau bunch this vote lol

1. RIHR HATCH OLBY ONLDSON

Aaaaand I’m done

MICHELLE,

Merge, merge, merge!!!!!!!!

Hey Logan I was going back to civilisation tomorrow but now staying here another day with ultra limited reception. Will not be a contender for immunity at all. I can’t remember if you had a rule for non playing or something like that… But will try to do something to show that I am alive and want to do something if not for this friggin Australian bush.

I have 5 minutes. Here is my pitiful entry…… John Cochran + Dawn Meehan = JoCochrDwMeea

Logan is it a final 2 or final 3?

ME: It’s -always- a Final 2.

SERG,

Put us out of our misery and tell us we are merged…lol

I want to merge 😀

Logan

Winner and runner-ups can be from different seasons right?

TYLER,

Sergiu for the idol clues, please

Also I vote to merge.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #9

(BRENDA)-(CANDY)-(*GLORIA*)-(JASON)-(JEREMY)-(MICHELLE)-(NAOMI)-(SERG)-(TYLER)
XXX
(TOBIAS)-(MICHAEL)-(GEORGE MICHAEL)-(LUCILLE)-(lindsay)-(BUSTER)-(LUCILLE II)-(GEORGE SR.)-(BOB)

Remember you must answer your questions and vote by 300am eastern Saturday (I assume Independence Day weekend didn’t affect anybody because nobody messaged me in the past few days?)

Note that the jury will start receiving the transcripts of these Tribal Councils.

BRENDA,

1. Not everyone agreed to merge. Why do you think people would vote against merging at this point?

I guess because people don’t like change

2. MGI is gone. You no longer have to worry about receiving the second highest number of votes. Do you prefer MGI only existing during the pre-merge phase?

Naw I never went to MGI so I’m kind of happy it’s gone – there was so much more to worry about when it was around … now it’s one person gone and everyone else happy.

CANDY,

1. You are the only player remaining in this game who has spent time on both tribes. How does that position you in this game?

I think that me being on both Daln and Spau puts me in a pretty crappy position – LOL. Neither tribe knows who I am loyal to, and that sucks for me. What really sucks for me is that I don’t have relationships with anyone that might want to keep me in the game, which makes me believe that I’m being voted out tonight.

2. Gloria holds individual immunity. Does that put her in an increasingly powerful position compared to everybody else? Or does it not matter much this early in the merge?

I don’t think immunity puts Glo in a power position. I think all of the original Spau members are in a crappy position because Spau didn’t come in with the numbers.

GLORIA,

1. After an unusual challenge, you hold individual immunity. Have you noticed anybody treating you differently?

Nope, the challenge was wild to say the least, and I am shocked I won. I haven’t talked to everybody yet cause of July 4th I suppose but want to. No, noone has treatd me differently cause I won immunity!

2. What was different about this round that the majority of the players wanted to merge as opposed to two rounds ago?

I honestly think everybody had the situation of numbers in their heads I suppose and thats why some were comfortable with merge and some were not! thats my thoughts! I think many were over the MGI vote that scared people every tribal lol!

JASON,

1. This is the most people you’ve had at your camp in a long time. Have you been able to talk with everyone on the new tribe?

I haven’t spoken to everybody yet, but I’m trying to Been really busy lately, but after tomorrow I’ll have most likely spoken to everyone

2. Do you think everybody else has spoken to all other players in this game?

I don’t think so, because those i’ve missed haven’t messaged me, so obviously they haven’t gotten to everyone

JEREMY,

1. There was only three out of nine players who played out this challenge. Why do you think there was so little participation?

I think all the original Daln members are feeling relatively comfortable at the moment and thought that those in trouble would try hard to win. I was surprised to see Naomi and Jason not compete but I would have done the same in their position as Candy and Brenda have both shown they are willing to fight hard for immunity. Which may have placed a bigger target on them.

2. Do you think everyone has adjusted to playing as nine individuals? Or is there a team-oriented game going on here?

It’s an individual game but at the moment it makes much more sense to stick with old tribal allegiances, especially since Daln have the numbers advantage. In my opinion the other players are going to have a hard time making it further without something drastic occurring.

MICHELLE,

1. Is it still Daln versus Spau in your mind?

I think there is still Daln versus Spau leanings, even with this few numbers. But as with the real game of Survivor, anything can happen.

2. Has the topic of the hidden immunity idol come up at camp?

Of course HII comes up. I can’t remember how many there can still be. I know there is definitely one out there because 3 was bandied around a lot… But is there more?

MICHELLE: Ok Logans Hosting-Org…. Who the hell are all the people after us?

NAOMI,

1. Do you think targets have shifted strictly because of the fact that the two tribes are merged?

Oh of course. Both tribes would have had someone at the bottom, now theyre more than likely gonna target the other tribe instead.

2. If MGI was still in play, how would that have changed your strategy?

I don’t know if it really would have? Maybe try and vote the strongest member out so they can’t win immunity?

MICHELLE: ………..

SERG,

1. Do you think there are others, besides Glo, who are absolutely convinced that they are safe this round?

In a game like survivor you should never be cocky and think u are safe unless you have that immunity neckless. This game started with two blindsides and i personally think it would be foolish of any1 to think they are 100% safe.

2. Do you have a good sense of where everyone stands in this game right now?

With all the twists and turns in this game i think its pretty much impossible to tell where everyone is sitting. I have a good guess about what is going on, but i cant be surten.

TYLER,

1. You, Naomi, and Candy spent at least 24 hours on MGI each. Do you think MGI complicates the bonds in the game once post-merge begins?

I was just kinda chillin’ on MGI by myself, relaxing, having a cocktail. Watching Tommy Wisseau’s The Room. In short I didn’t really socialize while on MGI so I don’t think it’s that big a deal in terms of bonding.

2. You sent a greeting to everyone on the merged tribe. Do you think that makes you stick out at all?

I’m just here to have a good time and was really busy so used the video greeting as a way to say hi to everyone at the same time.

Alright, when you vote please do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (LOGAN)

LOGAN + WACKY = LOGN WCKY. . .Yeah, it was a lame challenge.

Alright. Gloria is safe. You cannot vote for Glo. Everybody else is fair game. Between now and 300am eastern Saturday, it is time to vote. Kywac tribe, you’re up.

TC VOTING

BRENDA,

I guess I’m voting for Jeremy

CANDY,

My vote is Jeremy. Sorry, jeremy, but you haven’t taken the time to get to know me at all.

GLORIA,

I VOTE FOR: “Candy” she is a hell of a player but everyone feels she brings to much havoc to game but I think she is a hell of a fighter and player! I am voting with majority and nothing more!

JASON,

Vote: Jeremy

Reason: purely strategy, if you go this game will get a little crazy and I love me some crazy

JEREMY,

VOTE: Candy

Thanks for playing.

MICHELLE,

I vote Candy because that was the consensus. We couldn’t decide between 2.

NAOMI,

Jeremy please

and

***___”THE IDOL”___***
I would like to play this on Brenda please

SERG,

I vote for Candy.

Reason: It is what my alliance wants and to be honest you did screw me when u called my alliance with glo out… I tried to help you and that is how you played ne back… it is not an easy vote honestly. But it is one i have to make. Sorry

TYLER,

Voting confessional: Candy, you were in tight with the Daln group but then you had to go and start spreading a bunch of crap to try to turn people against each other. I think your plan to tear Daln apart would have worked brilliantly had you just waited until post-merge to do it. As it stands now you clearly flip flop more than John Kerry and have clearly shown that you can’t be trusted by anyone in the game, so you’ve gotta go.

My vote is for Candy.

TC VOTE REVEAL

Okay. If anybody has a hidden immunity idol and they played it this round, now would be the time I’d reveal it.

NAOMI: ***___”THE IDOL”___***

Rules of my Survivor state that if somebody plays an idol, the idol will activate if the person receives the highest number of votes. The Tribal Council will be null and void, and whoever voted for the person that played the idol will stay behind for a new Tribal Council.

Sadly, this is not the idol. Into the fire it goes. ‘Twas a fake.

CANDY: So long, all! Good luck. I saw this coming a mile away. Told ya!

ME: Judging by the vote, tribal lines continue to exist despite it officially being an individual game. On the surface we seem to be in for a predictable stretch, but in a season where unpredictability has prevailed for the most part, it may be a bit too soon to make such a bold statement.

CANDY EXIT INTERVIEW

1. People didn’t know this, but you were one of the first to sign up but then withdrew a week later. . .and then wanted your application reinstated. Why did you drop out initially? And why did you want back in?

** You actually asked me to play, Logan, which is when I applied when I did. If someone asks me to play and I’m able to, I’ll play. I dropped out because of the drama caused by Ivan and Karla in SurviveWar. They attacked me and went personal by bringing my kids into it. I didn’t want to make myself vulnerable again. When I found out they weren’t playing your game, I decided to play. And, by the way, you told me to sit on it and wait to make my decision– That you would hold my application until the last minute. You asked me if I would still play, and I said that I would. Don’t make it seem like I came crawling back to you to please include me in your game.

2. You were the seventh member of Spau yet you didn’t show up for Opening Day. Does that mean you had an agreement with players beforehand to ensure you would be included on a tribe?

** I was traveling, which is why I didn’t “show up” for Opening Day. I was on a plane home from Mexico. I didn’t have an agreement with anyone.

3. In the first round everyone on Daln agreed to give you individual immunity. Did they consult with you before giving you immunity or did you convince someone on Daln to campaign for you?

**I worked with Kayde to get me immunity, and I got her immunity in return.

4. Did you feel close to Daln once they gave you individual immunity? Would you have not worked with them if they hadn’t done that?

** No. I only felt close to Kayde on Daln. Giving me immunity had no bearing on that.

5. You guys win immunity in round one. Then round two came. Since you and Albee had each other blocked, and because the challenge relied on communication, you needed to rely on somebody else to co-ordinate. Branden mixed up yours and Albee’s roles. Both of you blamed Branden. Is that fair considering none of that would happen if you and Albee hadn’t blocked each other in the first place?

** I blame Branden. I went to him privately and asked him what Albee’s number was. I asked him to proof it. He gave me the wrong number.

6. At the second Tribal Council you voted for Albee. Did you consult with Kodi or Chance about voting Albee? Or did you do that completely on your own?

** There was supposed to be a group of people voting for Albee: Me, Chance, Jason and Kodi. Jason flipped.

7. Albee was sent to MGI after this round. In fact you never see him again because he wins the next two duels. Were you more willing to work with Spau now that Albee was essentially out of the equation for the time being?

*Yes, but I knew that I couldn’t trust Branden. I knew that he was working with Albee, because someone told me. (I can’t remember who.) He was lying to me from the start of the game.

8. Albee was working close with Branden and so were you at the time. Did you know that your relationship in the game with Branden was as close as Albee’s relationship with Branden?

**It’s funny, because Branden completely denied working with Albee. I knew that Albee and Branden were working together, as I said, because someone told me. Branden lied and lied and lied– And he didn’t know that I knew the truth.

9. Round three you win immunity. Then in round four the other two pairs lose against Daln’s pairs in Quoridor. Albee wins the duel which means Danial joins your tribe. If Albee lost the duel, do you think Chance would have been eliminated?

** I honestly don’t know.

10. And if you and Brenda were allowed to finish your duel with Tyler and Glo. . .think you would have owned and destroyed them?

**Yeah. Brenda and I worked really well together. We had everything planned out.

11. You guys voted out Danial, but sent Christian to MGI. You voted out Danial because you didn’t know him. I am guessing you had absolutely no idea about the controversy he was involved in until these episodes were posted?

**Danial was a bit of a dick. I knew that Daln didn’t like him, but didn’t know all of the drama that had occurred.

12. Now to round five. The mutiny. At the time you said you mutinied because you didn’t feel included in Spau. Looking back, were there any variables you wish you considered or additional benefits to deciding to mutiny at the time?

** Nope. I’m glad I made the move I did. I wouldn’t have changed the thing.

13. Spau lost the very next challenge. You appeared to lead Daln to victory (this was the challenge with the logos and national flags). No matter what Spau would have lost because of Chance. If you remained on Spau, I am guessing Chance was guaranteed to go even if you were an outsider at the time?

*Looks like it, considering how badly he screwed up.

14. And if Chance hadn’t screwed up, would your contribution to Daln make the difference in who won immunity?

** Come on. I rocked that challenge. If I was going against Brenda, it may have been closer if they had all of the pieces.

15. So round six comes along. I am guessing Daln had a huge advantage because the extra members checked the main group to see what exactly the challenge was all about while Spau didn’t have those extra members? Do you think that was an unfair advantage for Daln?

** No. They were told not to check in on the main page. If they did, they didn’t follow directions and deserved to lose the challenge.

16. If Daln lost the challenge, Albee would have joined Daln at Tribal Council. Christian would still have his hidden immunity idol at MGI. What do you think happens in this scenario? Would you think Christian would give his idol to Albee? Does Albee go home in a swift 7-1 vote?

**Albee would have gone home.

17. So Albee goes. Were you much more willing to work with Spau members now that had happened? Or were you thinking about working with the other members regardless?

** I was willing to work with Spau once Branden quit, to be honest with you. I knew that the only reason that anyone voted to keep Albee was because Branden convinced them to. Branden was the brains there… I knew that he would never choose me over Albee– Especially if he stayed after I mutinied.

18. And then round seven came. You guys voted whether or not you wanted to merge. It seemed like a merge would be the most ideal situation for you. You’d go from the bottom rung of Daln to the person with all the power in the middle. Why not merge? Did you think somebody else on Daln was in more trouble than you?

** I knew that everyone else on Daln was voting not to merge, and I would have lost the decision anyway. Why pot an even bigger target on my back?

19. A unanimous vote to not merge. We have another tribal immunity challenge and sure enough Daln loses. Christian joins the tribe. When did he tell you about his hidden immunity idol? And how would things have been different if Naomi joined Daln instead of Christian?

** I knew Christian got the idol as soon as he hit MGI. If Naomi joined Daln, I’m pretty confident that I would have been voted out.

20. Is this the start of the unusual relationship between you and Christian? How did the plan to save both of you come about?

**No, Christian and I started talking when Branden blasted me on the main page after Albee and I used the same number in that challenge. Christian was working with Naomi, and brought me in.

21. You guys picked Gloria and Tyler to play in the immunity challenge. The wordsmith challenge where Gloria and Tyler got smoked. Why agree to let them play?

**I didn’t agree. I was overruled. I said that Christian and I should have played.

22. You voted for Tyler but didn’t elaborate too much in your vote reasoning other than “I gotta save myself”. Care to elaborate on what you exactly meant at the time?

** I liked Tyler. I didn’t want to vote him out, but everyone else was voting Christian. If I voted Christian – which I never would have done – I would have been in a situation where I could have been in danger on the revote.

23. The votes were revealed. Christian played his idol. He received the most votes. Jeremy self-voted. Anybody who voted for Christian stay behind while anybody who didn’t is immune. You received a vote. It is revealed that by process of elimination that Michelle voted against you. You seemed really close with Michelle up to that point. Were you ditching Daln right then solely because of Michelle’s vote?

**I was never close with Michelle. As a matter of fact, Michelle flat out lied to me, saying that she would vote Christian and really voted me. The idea was to ditch Daln as soon as possible so that Christian and I could try to rally with Naomi.

24. If Michelle didn’t vote against you would you have stayed with Daln no matter what? At that point do you think you would have been dead in the water on Daln at the next Tribal Council?

**No, I wouldn’t have. It was the plan to mutiny as soon as we could. If Christian and I stayed behind on Daln, Chris would have gone before me. They were a bit pissed about that idol.

25. I am sure Daln members asked you if Michelle’s vote against you bothered you at the time. If they think it bothers you, I assume they would be paranoid enough to oust you anyway. On the other hand, you could re-integrate yourself in the tribe if they feel you let it roll by. So were upfront that you were done with Daln or did you try to pretend nothing happened?

**I wasn’t as upset as people thought. I wanted to make them think I was upset– I knew I was going to mutiny regardless. I just wanted them to think that it was Michelle’s fault so that I might be a little safer come merge!

26. Then we get to round eight. Tyler and Naomi are on MGI. You and Christian are on a tribe with four other Daln members. Brenda and Jason alone on Spau. You probably aren’t discussing the Mutiny Trigger yet. Did you and Christian discuss how to survive a vote on Daln if you guys lost again?

**Christian and I started discussing the mutiny trigger when he arrived on Daln. We never discussed how to survive the next vote– We knew we were going to use it.

27. You guys on Daln fought over who would face off against Brenda and Jason. You and Christian advocated for you two to play against Brenda and Jason. Why did you two want to play in the challenge? Were you and Christian or Brenda and Jason intending to throw it? If so, what was the reasoning behind it?

** Again, we wanted to give a reason as to why we were going to mutiny. I made a bigger stink. Logically, it should have been me & Chris playing, since we were the ones that were at risk of going home. No one on Daln wanted to hear it. It just seemed like it was a better reason for us to mutiny.

28. But Naomi uses the Mutiny Trigger. Take us through that process of Naomi using it.

** Naomi used the trigger. Christian and I mutinied. Naomi was actually talking with Chris more than me. I was blindly following Chris at this point.

29. And then you and Christian flipped. Was any part of you thinking about remaining on Daln? Did anybody on Daln try to convince you to stay on the tribe while the trigger was being pulled?

**Oh, HELL NO would I remain on Daln. I’m not stupid. I knew that if I stayed, I was history. As for anybody trying to convince me to stay, I never heard a word from anyone after Naomi used it.

30. You pulled a SCWL first. You mutinied TWICE in the same season. How do you feel about possessing that record?

**Well, I gotta make history somehow, right? I think it’s pretty cool. I’m sure the viewers ate it up.

31. Spau must feel like they were going to win this now that things are 4 vs. 4 plus 1 vs. 1 on MGI, and the challenge is divided into two parts. The first part is to decode a message that the other tribe picked from Wikipedia that could be solved by process of elimination. The second part was to play the role of a travel agent. . .which you used to do as an occupation. Did Spau think they had the game won at this point?

**Yes, we did. And I freaking rocked that travel challenge. I had just under 130,000 miles. If Jason hadn’t screwed it up, we would have won.

32. But you guys lose because of Jason. You don’t even get to see if you would have beat Michelle at your own game. Yet Jason’s name didn’t come up once during the vote. Why?

**I don’t know, really. Jason was pretty slippery in this game, wheeling and dealing with everyone.

33. The vote was bizarre. Jason changed his vote. You and Jason vote Christian. Naomi votes you. Brenda votes Naomi. Christian self-votes. Tell me how crazy that vote was.

** I knew that Christian was going to self-vote. At this point, I was working with Brenda and Jason. We all knew how close Chris and Naomi were, and we needed to split them up. We thought Naomi had an immunity idol, and if she played it, it would have come down to a vote between me, Brenda and Christian. Who knows what would have happened then? I see now that I could have voted Naomi and caused a tie. Math has never been my strong suit.

34. Did anyone know that Christian was automatically immune at the next Tribal Council? Would that have impacted Tribal Council if he told you this?

Nope, no one knew. If he told me, I would have changed my vote.

35. Then the merge came because of Daln. I am guessing everyone wanted to merge at that point?

No. We didn’t have the numbers.

36. You lose immunity. Daln gangs up on you. Why did Spau vote Jeremy? And why do you think Daln voted you? Anything you could have done to evade that elimination?

** I knew it was coming once we merged. There was nothing I could do. Sergiu flat out lied to me, telling me that it was Brenda. I told him that I knew it was me, and he went on and on about how it wasn’t. This is what prompted my jury speech. Michelle told me that she was voting me out because that was the plan with Daln. At least she was honest. Sergiu lied his ass off– And for no reason. He pretended that he was going to vote with me and Jason to oust Jeremy. (And I can’t remember why we chose Jeremy.) Sergiu had no reason to lie to me– AT ALL. That’s why he didn’t get my vote at the end… He wouldn’t even address it when I asked why he thought he deserved my vote.

37. Who did you want to win (I am guessing not who makes Final Two)? Who did you think would win? Who did you want to lose? Who did you think would lose?

** I hope Michelle wins. She was at least honest. Sergiu was an utter snake in this game, and got really pompous at the end. If he loses by one vote, he could have had my vote if he was more direct in the game and in the FTC.

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

People think that I voted bitter in this game. I didn’t. I voted for Michelle because she was direct in her answer. She played a better social game. Sure, she lied to me, but she copped to it when I confronted her. Sergiu never did. Michelle answered my jury question; Sergiu just talked about how great he played. I had a great time. Thanks for having me!

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL, we thank you for playing this game!

NEXT TIME ON SCWL 5:

– With a fake idol played, the identity of who holds the final hidden immunity idol will soon be exposed. Will that cause some Daln members to re-think their game plan and question trust?

– As the only remaining challenge threat from Spau, and because she is known for being a social threat too, all eyes are on ousting Brenda. Can she pull the upset and win immunity or will Daln prevail and send her packing?

– But Naomi and Jason aren’t safe in the long run either. They must pick a target for Daln to eat one of their own. Who will they choose? And can they succeed to make this game competitive once again?

– Do not miss what could be the first lacklustre and boring round of the whole season!

P.S. Yeah, those were all Arrested Development names.

5.10 SCWL 5 Episode 10: Odds Are Against You

Date: July 6 – 9 2013
Immunity Challenge X: Who Dat?
Inspired By: Identify Dat from SCWL 4 but instead use memorable people from the competitive reality TV genre.
Were There Really -Dat- Memorable?: According to everyone else. . .no.
Winner: Brenda.
Losers: Everyone else. But really, Naomi.
Voted Out: Naomi.
Vote Distribution: 5-2-1
Who?: Naomi-Jeremy-Jason

SLATED TO BE A FREAKIN’ BORING ROUND

Numbers are 5-3. If SCWL has taught us anything, one more from Spau will be picked off. However. . .

EVERYONE KNOWS JEREMY HAS AN IDOL

Gloria said she cornered him in a conversation in which he tried to change the subject. The paranoia from playing a fake idol ends up affecting who has the real deal. Jeremy was just one vote away from being booted last round, but finds himself with his back against the wall yet again. At this rate he would close in on Jessica Frey’s votes cast against record. Jeremy may not even be aware that everyone is looking to flush his idol out of the game at first opportunity.

However, I don’t think it will happen until next round. Spau is still too close and full of skilled players that could turn this game on its head.

In other words, Gloria will wait one round to switch things up.

JASON REPLACES JEREMY IN THE ALLIANCE?

Again, according to Gloria’s confessionals, Jason has been recruited as a fifth. A vote split is being organized at Tribal Council to test Jason’s loyalty. As long as the rest of Daln doesn’t veto Gloria’s newest recruit, she may be unstoppable. Her, Michelle, Serg, and Jason could very well cruise to the Final Four. Ditch Jason then Serg or vice versa.

JEREMY HAS TWO IDOLS??? IDOL CONFUSION

This was a funny short storyline that I forgot. Because of clues still being requested for the final idol, people thought it was re-hidden or an additional one in play despite telling some people that idols are never re-hidden. Oh, and the fact I have stated there are exactly three hidden immunity idols no matter what each season. No re-hides or drop in idols. One at each camp and one that is up for grabs regardless of tribal affiliation.

For some reason the rumours persisted to the point that people feared Jeremy had not only his idol but a non-existant one. Poor Jeremy. His life in this game is heading into a tailspin faster than everyone anticipated. Will he recover?

THE FLATTEST CHALLENGE OF THE SEASON

Just a simple challenge I like to do every once in a while. You see who dat? Tell me which show they are apart of. Now tell me the season. Now tell me the episode. There. That’s your challenge. Highest number of points wins. Brenda is in a seven-versus-one situation. Her reality TV knowledge needs to trump the other seven minds in this game. Tough task.

BRENDA PULLS IT OFF

And worst case scenario for Naomi and Jason occurs. The obvious boot has immunity. Jason’s scrambling may be all for nothin’. All of Naomi’s friends have been wiped out round after round. Not even Moray is present. She is truly screwed for this vote. Because I didn’t receive any confessionals from Naomi, I assumed that she thought she was out of moves.

JEREMY TARGETED BY SPAU AGAIN

Jason may have flipped, but Brenda and Naomi make another move against Jeremy. I s’pose they tried to rope in Gloria or Serg to arrange for the blindside. It seemed wise on paper. Inflate the threat level of whoever holds their idol. And thankfully, Jeremy isn’t the one at the epicentre of the Daln alliance. He is probably just as much at risk as Naomi.

NAOMI GOES IN SURPRISE SPLIT VOTE

Daln pulls off the split vote without it blowing up in their face. A 5-2-1 vote is risky when three members of the opposing tribe are still in play. Jason keeps his newfound word to Daln. That may be the wisest move seeing how Daln was not budging on sending Naomi or Brenda this round. Naomi goes relatively quietly in a relatively quiet round for SCWL 5 standards, and we are down to seven.

MAGIC ROUND OF SEVEN

Longtime viewers know what I will say next–when Survivor gets down to seven players, past players on TV say an unexplainable shift in the game occurs. And when numbers are 5-2, and everyone knows where the idol rests, Brenda may not even have to win immunity this round. Her and Jason’s stock have skyrocketed as Daln will be looking to improve from being a top five into securing a Final Four position. That’s how Survivor works in a seven-person dynamic. I assure you all seven players are thinking about their best course of action to get to the Final Four.

Although only two people are truly at risk next round. Will Brenda go home anyway in a boring vote if she fails to win immunity or will SCWL 5 witness a craaaazy blindside? Or will Jeremy see it coming?

The endgame scramble has begun!

ROUND 10 CONFESSIONALS

BRENDA,

Omg … I give up … I haven’t got a clue in hell who the last few are

TieBreaker #2

Angie Layton – Survivor : Phillipines

I’m voting for Jeremy

GLORIA,

Eric Ouellette was on Big Brother 3 Firefighter

Eric Ouellette, he also appeared on “elimiDATE”.

Eric Ouellette was also on Big brother 15.

Alicia Calaway is a contestant from Survivor: The Australian Outback and Survivor: All-Stars…

hehehehehehe!

HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!

Confession: Jeremy made me offer in a message if we go to final tribal situation then jumped right off the TOPIC which leads me to beleive he put that deal in wrong message and meant it for someone else messaging him at same time. So now jeremy is being watched has an IDOL and is going for another one that is a guarantee and I know it…TIME TO FLUSH out the IDOL and I think I have Stephen voting for his own tribemate to better himself in this game. If he doesn;t then it won;t benefit him with any deals with me If I make a MOVE with him!

I won;t be making any deals with Stephen if he doesn’t vote for NAOMI cause he has to make a sacraficde for me to even consider a bold move with HIM>

I am wanting Naomi out over Stephen but I like all 3 of these Spau players cause they have not harrassed me in game.!!!

Stephen wanted me to flip or vote with them this time but can;t do it…have alliance to my Five but a way loyal alliance to Segiu and Michelle. Michelle makes me nervous but I am gonna proabably suck it up, she is way to cautious and is afraid of what people in ORGS think of her and I will tell her to her face after this game rather I get gone or not lol

Jeremy needs to go to BIG a threat and I know it..he is gonna get 2 dam idols under his belt and that will boot me out to soon i FEAR lol gotta think of way to get them flushed.

right now have Stephen voting Naomi unless he changes his mind lol

I wnat Michelle to quit playing under radar as MIS hositality every game she plays but don;t want her to betray ME cause I don;t want to betray her.

Sergiu s great guy i just plain dam like him and want to play in another org with him sometime in future if possible

wish Stephen had been on this tribe things would have gone different I think but who knows he and I have messaged thru whole game trying to make MERGE

CANDY was a hell of a fighter and not afraid to speak her peace RIGHT or WRONG I repected that about her but she rubbed to many people the worng way and they would not rust her on Dalyn tribe..

Don’t know much about Naomi and Brenda but I think when they want they can be fierce in challenges and Stephen too when he participates with his whole heart

Winning that word game thing with only 3 submissions blew my mind and then I thought go GLO try to win it with all their mistakes and I DID and was surprised that the 2nd part of hard work in that challenge paid off for IMMUNITY which I lLOVED

now I have Tyler and Segiu saying dangerous to split votes cause they don;t know what falls ahead if we all don’t flush the dam idol out..are they playing servivor or playing safety game lol

But they are both great Spau players and I like them both alot and Tyler trusted me and he is till in game because of it which I am happy about having him with us % but JEREMY is the threat for me..dam sad thing is i LOVE the hell out of low key JEREMY who is fierce behind the scenes in challenges when he want to be..I gave clues he found IDOL and had NO NERVE to tell me until I confronted him in message. I knew he had it too!

so enough confessonal form me.

i am getting ready to place my vote! if it changes I will come back and re submit but funeral yesterday and past 2 deaths I have had to handle in this ORG is enough and NO it is not a Johnny Fairplay move!

VOTE COMING NOW!

VOTE COMING NOW

;

I VOTE: Naomi (nothing against her whatsoever, just want to keep Stephen longer over her because he has communicated with me thru messages this whole ORG season!)

MICHELLE,

Just home from holidays and not much time, so pitiful response here…. 2. Nicolle Dickson Celebrity Survivor Vanuatu S1 2006 5. TAR S9 E10 Eric and Jeremy 7. TAR BJ and Tyler S9

Hi Logan…Jeremy and I have looked at your rules and the question we are about to ask isn’t really addressed……soooooo……

Say Daln ppl split our votes on two of the Spau and so one person at Spau has 3 votes…then the 3 Spau vote for Jeremy. If Jeremy plays his idol and there is a tie of 3/3/2 in the votes……therefore Jeremy doesn’t have a majority, or a minority either…what happens??? Does the idol do anything? Does he lose it? (Is it fake anyway because other ppl are being given clues in 5 hours anyway??? :P)…….rhetorical question there.

ME: If a person plays an idol, and it’s a 3-3-2 tie, where the idol player has 3 votes, there is a re-vote. If the idol holder player ends up with the majority of the votes in the re-vote, their idol is activated and anyone who voted for them in the re-vote (and if the player who also received 3 votes also voted for the idol player) stay behind for a new TC. If it ends up a 3-3 tie in the re-vote, then whoever receives the highest number of votes is the tiebreaker. If the idol player has the highest number of past votes, their idol is activated. Therefore, anyone who voted for the idol player in the re-vote (and if the player who also received 3 votes also voted for the idol player) stay behind for a new TC.

Confessional…what a mess…I mean does Jeremy have a real idol or a fake one. Is Logan giving out clues for a fake idol, and if so, why? Messing with our heads. People think Naomi has one. 2 and a half hours until votes have to be in and Tyler hasn’t done his questions yet. Dear Lord he stresses me out as well. This could go awry. Is Jeremy going to play his idol? Will we go to a tie? Is Tyler going to vote at all? It was all going so, so well. Jason being nice…hate it when you know the other tribe is going down. At least you can give the nice, chatty ones a chance to stay as long as possible. Can’t wait for this one to be over.

SERG,

So no other fake idol is placed? I could use the fake one

ME: I can’t say if more fakes are in circulation. And no, the answer you provided for the first puzzle is not correct.

Just U

The answer is just U

1-The Amazing Race. S2. E.8 2- 3- 4- 5-The Amazing Race. S9. E5 6-The Amazing Race. S3. E7 7-The Amazing Race. S8. E2 8- 9-Survivor. S1. E4 10-

Logan i just wanted to mention that if you do that kind of challenges please make sure every1 knows the series u take picture from. I mean not exacly but at least heard of it. Exept TAR and Survivor i had no idea what the other shows were

This is just a note

Which is last TC the idol can be played?

ME: 4.

Ok, thc

I vote for Naomi.

Reason: I dont think we exchanged ANY words since this game started and it might be partly my fault, but u are also to blame.

NAOMI,

motherf—er -.- its a fake?

i am forfeiting the cchallenge please And #9 is Tyrone Davis from Survivor Nicaragua

ME: Yes, the idol you found was indeed a fake.

Jeremy

thank you for the game, I had fun

TYLER,

9. Tyrone from Survivor Nicaragua

All the others have me completely stumped lol

Voting confessional: I’ve got three words for you Naomi:

Payback’s…a…bitch.

Just kidding.

Sorry Naomi, you just ended up on the wrong side of the numbers. Time for some ORG newbies to take some control around here.

My vote is for Naomi.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #10

(*BRENDA*)-(GLORIA)-(JASON)-(JEREMY)-(MICHELLE)-(NAOMI)-(SERG)-(TYLER)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)-(MORAY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(CANDY)

The asterisks indicate that Brenda is wearing immunity.

You have until 100pm eastern Tuesday to answer your questions and cast your vote.

BRENDA,

1. You came away with immunity. Surprised you won despite posting a relatively low score compared to the potential maximum?

2. Naomi played what she thought was a hidden immunity idol to protect you. Did you know that a possible idol would be played to save you?

GLORIA,

1. At last Tribal Council the vote appeared to come down to tribal lines. What would it take for those tribal lines to break?

We are a merged tribe now but I honestly believe that both Spau and Daln players are loyal to each of their own tribe. It is hard to turn on loyal members of your tribe when you have bonded and worked so hard together to get to merge. It is anybodies game now and I am sure each of us are thinking what moves are best for our game. I feel loyalty gets you further in game, but you never know what all players are doing behind the scenes with offers of gameplay and such. We are each playing our own games inside our heads and each player will surely do what is best to further themselves in game I suppose.

2. What’s your criteria going into the vote this round?

My criteria is what is best for overall gameplay for people I trust.

JASON,

1. Despite being on the lower end of the tribal numbers entering merge, you and Naomi haven’t been too competitive in the first two individual challenges. Is that intentional or have the challenges thus far been a struggle?

It’s not that they’ve been a struggle, but last challenge I was going to my grandparents and there was no way I would be able to put in the time needed to pull out a win, and this challenge I knew the answer to like, 3 of them…

2. In fact, there haven’t been many contneders for immunity each round. Do you think people on both sides are intentionally trying to act unthreatening and under-the-radar?

I’m not really sure what Naomi’s doing, I’m not trying to act unthreatening, and I think all the members of Daln are just pretty comfortable and don’t see a need to fight for immunity

JEREMY,

1. You received four out of nine votes last Tribal Council. That is the highest number of votes you could receive without being eliminated. Why do you think you were the target last round?

I think I have been the target because I haven’t been overly social and it’s much easier to vote for someone that you haven’t even spoken to. Also Candy and I don’t like each other so that probably played a role.

2. Do you feel increasingly paranoid this round knowing that almost half of the remaining people on this tribe wrote down your name last Tribal Council?

Normally I would because the remaining Spau members only have to swing one vote away from the Daln alliance to send me home due to the tiebreakers but I have complete trust in my alliance. I also have a special rock in my pocket that is itching to be played.

MICHELLE: Oh, and if I ever got on we would wear blue…..unless we were forced kicking and screaming to wear pink/purple….which they do force ppl to do!

GLO: Wear Red Michelle Pearce-Denovan!

NAOMI: wait they replaced Amazing Race with the Mole?? Why? We finally had a decent reality show. That never happens here

ME: I didn’t know the Body Break stars of the 90s have an international reputation. It’s only the first season and TAR Canada is already stunt casting.

JASON: I’m canadian…

ME: But Michelle ‘like’d the post. I assumed that meant she knew who they are.

JASON: Oh, I thought you were talking about me

ME: Or were. They are nothing but washed up from their fifteen minutes of one-minute commercial fame!

JASON: NEVER! HAL AND JOANNE ARE GODS

GLO: POPCORN, peanuts cotton candy anyone watching this between Jason Stephens and Logans Hosting-Org! Lets all DANCE! Logans Hosting Org can we all have immunity this tribal?

MICHELLE:  Logans….Jason was talking to me about them, so I liked the post because he actually wrote it on here.

ME: I couldn’t have them left out

GLO: Logans Hosting-Org what are you doing?

MICHELLE: God I love the race. I am actually trying to buy some of Phil’s luggage as we speak.  I’m a total goner. Naomi – channel 7 were in negotiations with Active tv (the ppl who produce the race) at the end of last year. Active cant actually go to another station even if they wanted to because 7 have the rights for another year or so. 7 thought the race was too expensive, so they decided to bring back the Mole instead. It is such a bummer because I was actually working my way up the audition process. Anyway, the Mole isn’t doing as well as TARAU did in the ratings, so hopefully they decide to bring it back.

NAOMI: TARAU was the first reality show they copied that actually was really working for them… I’m trying to watch the mole and it sucks haha

MICHELLE,

1. Do you find it lame that there are only nine teams in The Amazing Race Canada? I understand it’s easier to get to know a cast when there’s only nine teams, but isn’t that a bit of an extreme? Or do you think it’s because Canada is so boring in terms of interesting locations that they didn’t have enough rounds to sustain more than nine teams?

Who knows why the producers do what they do in any season. I mean why does the US season need a team of blondes EVERY season who wear pink or purple? Why do they put in a token black/asian/ethnic team…why not all the teams having a different nationality? Why did the Australian version stall in negotiations with the channel over money…when they have replaced it with an inferior quality “Mole” …which is doing crap in the ratings? Ok…you got me started. As to number of teams…..is there any reason why 4 seasons of the US race had 12 teams, while the rest had 11? The family version had 10, but that may have been because controlling 40 ppl would have been crazy enough. I liked your idea of having 13 legs to take in all of Canada, but don’t believe “getting to know teams” is a valid excuse for having less teams. I think it is disappointing for the new country who has waited so long for their own version and then the hundreds of ppl who apply then have to compete for only 9 spots. I don’t think Canada is a boring country at all. I think they just wanted to make it easier for themselves.

2. What’s the status of trust in this game? Is it relatively straight-forward or is it positioned precariously as you know people are likely thinking about the endgame and where they stand?

Trust is an ever present wolf at the door, and hate that it makes you paranoid in this game. Daln is pretty tight, and we are moving forward to the end as easy as we can. But of course ppl would have been thinking of the end game…maybe from day 1…maybe from the merge….everyone plays this game differently. Time will tell.

JASON: All that matters is that the body break people will be on The Amazing Race Canada

NAOMI,

1. Last round you played what you thought was an idol on Brenda. Yet not only was the idol fake, but Candy was eliminated. What made you decide to not only play it for someone who didn’t receive votes, but also lead you to believe it was real?

Because even Candy said it was likely to be Brenda. Honestly you might not have noticed but I’m just doing pretty freaking bad at this game. Like it’s embarrassing.

2. Do you think the target is on you as a result of playing a fake idol?

The target is on me because I’m from Spau, not because of an idol.

SERG,

1. What has been the most interesting thing to happen since the merge?

Honestly, i think the most interesting thing was last tribal when not only did Spau use a fake idol, but they also wasted it since they played it for some1 who recieved no votes.

2. Do you think it is too early for everyone to start speculating on potential Final Two deals that are in the works?

I thinks its never to early to speculate final aliiances. After all many FTC contain ppl who started the game early together and build on their trust since then. So i dont think its to early to specualte who might have final two deals.

TYLER,

1. Whoever forfeited this challenge received ten clues for the final idol. How many people did you expect to step down and take these clues?

It seems that individual immunity is not really all that coveted even from the loosing side of the numbers, so I expected at least a few people to step down.

2. Is anyone expecting another twist to pop up before the end of the game?

The potential for another twist is like the potential for your parents having sex. It’s something that nobody ever likes to talk or even think about, but in the back of your mind you know it’ll probably eventually happen.

When you vote, please do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: Who is that idiot in the Vincent Vega costume pointing a toy gun at the camera? Answer: Logan. 4th year univeristy. Day where he had final exams. Experiencing alcohol for the first time. I don’t know why, but I think this round you’ll truly go home for once. I bid you an ice cold Mountain Dieu, good sir.

Okay. Brenda is safe. You cannot vote for Brenda. Everybody else is fair game. Between now and 100pm eastern Tuesday, it is time to vote. Kywac tribe, you’re up.

TYLER: Love ya ❤

NAOMI: Don’t worry, I would have been pissed if it wasn’t me. The others are putting in more effort and deserve to stay. Good luck everyone and play nicely

GLO: Naomi Soward that has to be one of the best things I have ever heard someone say when they were voted to jury..WOW I am so impressed with what you said about your other tribemeates! YAY for Naomi FOR REAL!

NAOMI: Yeah I tend to go out well
If I’m blindsided or screwed over I may get annoyed but that’s literally what the game is about.

ME: Well, I’m guessing there were no big surprises here. Daln’s majority continues to pick away at the Spau minority.

But as we are now down to seven people, we are at that time of the game where Survivor veterans an unexplained shift in the game occurs. Time will tell if that unexplained shift happens here as well.

(Next immunity challenge will be posted in just under 24 hours.)

SERG: Another twist?! For real? ….:|

TYLER: Don’t go near mom and dad’s bedroom!!

NAOMI EXIT INTERVIEW

Oh my. This game was done a while ago. The interview is certainly past its expiration date. Oh well.

1. There’s been enough questions about the potential you/Brenda/Jason/to a lesser extent Branden pre-game alliance. Branden and others have said it was unintentional. Therefore I ask you this: When you guys ended up on the same tribe, did you expect people like Kodi to publicly accuse you guys of having a pre-game alliance? If so, how did you intend to counter that?

I didn’t really think of it to be honest. It wasn’t a pre game alliance at all. I didn’t know a single other person who signed up for this game until then reveal. And I found it hilarious how many of us had signed up. And honestly I tend to ignore it after I make my case once. I don’t do pregame alliances. I love meeting new people, it’s how I’ve met so many great people.

2. On Opening Day you picked up the Mutiny Trigger reward. When you picked up the reward did you have any idea how to use it? Or if you were going to use it at all?

No not really. I was playing on my phone and wanted to make sure I ended up with something. And knowing I had a mutiny trigger was great in case of a tribe swap, or needing to recover numbers. It was only ever going to be used to help out my tribe and it kinda did that.

3. Branden was captain. He picked you. You picked Brenda. Was that an automatic alliance once the three of you were the top three picks on the tribe? Were you worried at all that, in the words of horrible musician Drake, that those at the bottom of the draft would come together to be the top?

No, not really. I got most of the people I wanted on my tribe on it. I was lucky with most picks. Obviously I wasn’t impressed with all of them and there were some others I wanted. Moray ❤ But no, that was the issue with our tribe. Alliances didn’t seem to really happen. Everyone was quieter than in previous games, so we all assumed everyone else was already in an alliance.

4. Having Chance, Candy, Branden, and Albee on the same tribe seemed to cause a lot of chaos. Do you think Spau could have been better organized? Who would you have swapped out of your tribe and exchange from the other tribe to make it a calmer and smoother tribe?

I would’ve wanted Moray over Chance in a heartbeat. Nothing against Chance, we’ve just never bonded in games, and I knew I’d like Moray the second we spoke. I also would have wanted Candy and Albee split. I would’ve been fine with either of them on my tribe as I get on with them both well, but I probably would have wanted Albee more just because I’d never played a game with him before and was really looking forward to it.

5. Spau wins the first tribal immunity challenge. Any concern that the tribe would be falling apart by the next round?

No not really, I was very aware I was on a tribe with a bunch of big personalities and past history, but I don’t think anyone could’ve predicted the implosion that happened on Spau. Especially how quickly it all changed.

6. You guys lose the second immunity challenge because of Branden. Do you think Branden sub-consciously sabotaged the challenge to trap Kodi and boot him or was it a mistake that really made the vote a mess?

I don’t even remember this challenge but no. Branden is not the kind of person to throw a challenge consciously or subconsciously. He’s too much of a competitor. It was an honest mistake.

7. Kodi kept giving you clues for the hidden immunity idol yet you boot him in round two as opposed to Albee. I know you wanted Chance out by this point too. How come you and Jason decided to swing over and boot Kodi instead of working with him?

It was Kodi v Albee. I wanted to work with both of them so bad. No one would listen to me that they were both strong and worth keeping over Chance. And honestly it was still a bit Kodi v Branden at this point and I chose Branden. I had been talking game with him, and put my foot in my mouth, as I do, and this was the best way to resolve it. And I wanted to keep getting to know Albee. We were bonding by this point.

8. Round three and Brenda leads the tribe to victory. I assume Brenda was virtually impenetrable on the tribe at this point because of her history of above-par challenge performances?

Duh. She was a beast in team challenges. And she wasn’t in the middle of the drama. No one was touching her. She was almost guaranteed merge already at this point.

9. When Kodi goes, the idol clues fall into the laps of Gloria and Branden. Did Branden share the clues with you like Gloria did with the rest of Daln?

He did share them with me. I’m not sure about everyone else. But I knew which mission he chose and what it was, and tried to help him with that. I wasn’t very useful though.

10. Now to round four. My personal favourite round . Branden wanted to keep Danial. Virtually everyone else didn’t. Christian simultaneously picked up the idol and was sent to MGI. I am guessing Danial’s boot, Christian picking up the idol, and him being sent to MGI to face Albee was all planned?

Aww man, I don’t remember half of this stuff. Danial was going though no matter what. It was an easy decision for us by keeping Spau united (not that it worked), by taking out the person who hadn’t been one of us yet. I do remember Danial asking me to vote Christian out and I told him I couldn’t. This was the first game I had to turn on Danial, and he was not impressed. But I couldn’t admit to him that Christian was in fact the only person I had a deal with. He was my number 1 and I wasn’t losing him. Plus if he was on MGI getting clues, they would be coming to me.

11. Anything to add about the whole Danial controversy? I remember in the second round where Danial proposed the rule change that you instantly messaged me “I know who is asking for the rule change”. And he’s a fellow Aussie.

Did I really?? I don’t remember that either. And not really. I know Danial gets aggressive towards some people, but he and I tend to be ok. I’ve played with him a few times and haven’t needed to vote him out before. I prefer to try and not vote for him, because I know he will take it the wrong way and I know that he does in fact see me as a friend.

12. Some would argue round five is where Spau truly loses the game. Candy mutinies. Anything you think anyone could have done to keep her on Spau? Because going alone to Daln would spell death 99% of the time. In fact, she probably would have been dead if Daln lost that round.

No. My tribe was a freaking mess. Seriously, we would have made such great TV. The issue with our tribe was nobody was talking. And I mean nobody. I was convinced that Candy was aligned with Branden and Chance from day 1. People thought Brenda, Jason and I were a three. Neither of those alliances existed. We were just paranoid because no one would be talking to you. But we were all dead quiet to everyone. It’s hilarious, but terrible at the same time. Candy was convinced she was gone soon, and I’m pretty sure everyone else thought it too. And I don’t think anyone expected anyone to mutiny. I felt horrible when she left, that was when I really realised, that no one in our tribe had been talking to each other.

13. Would Spau have fought harder for Candy to stay if all of you knew how much of a challenge powerhouse she would be for these two rounds?

How could we? It was never we didn’t want her. It was we sucked socially and she felt like an outsider. If we could replay this game, even if the tribes were different, I am sure we would all play different and actually talk to each other. We had so much past history on our tribe and it was completely detrimental to us.

14. Branden is highly emotional once Candy mutinies. Chance’s head isn’t in the game and challenges as much as others. Albee isn’t exactly attracting too many potential relationships with Daln members. Is this why you developed the friendship with Moray?

Nope, I just liked him. The minute he knew Greenwing, I knew we would bond.

15. I believe Moray said it wasn’t much of a strategic relationship in his eyes. So I must ask. . .was it a strategic relationship in your eyes?

Nah not really. As I said, I just really liked him. Of course it would have been amazing if I could have gotten him on my side come merge, or if he could protect me, but it was highly unlikely to happen. He’s just great to talk to.

16. I didn’t think of this until recently, but it was clear that Chance didn’t go in round two because you guys couldn’t trust Kodi. Danial had to go in round four because it’s Danial. Therefore, did it ever enter your mind to send Chance to MGI in round four instead of Christian? Because I have a feeling Christian is a lot more in tune with challenges than Chance.

Sending Chance to MGI though was very likely a guaranteed loss for Chance. If he went to Daln, he was dead. I knew Christian had an idol and we had already spoken of the mutiny plan. We had a better chance at keeping Christian alive and bringing him back to the team than we did with Chance. And it meant there was a buffer for one more round. And yep, I am aware that that sounds so bad. But I was pissed off with Chance at this stage.

17. Round six adds insult to injury when Brenda picks up the rewards. Who were your fingers pointed at regarding the challenge? And did you think Brenda was the guilty party?

I’m pretty sure I hated you this round… I open up my notifications and open all of them in separate tabs when I check fb in the morning. I felt so bad when I had checked the group before reading my message or seeing your post. And honestly I kinda thought I was partly to blame, I felt so bad from this challenge.

18. This vote had a surprising amount of suspense. Brenda and Albee both voted against you and forced a deadlock vote. What was your reaction to this? Did you want to go to MGI at this point?

Sort of. I wanted to go to MGI because Christian had my back. We already had our plan. And the other option was going home. I wish Albee and I had spoken sooner though because voting him was the hardest vote this game for me. And as bad as it is, I would’ve voted Jason out instead.

19. Now we’re in round seven. When did you re-discover you had the Mutiny Trigger, and put two-and-two together with Christian’s idol to come up with this over-the-top ridiculous scheme? Take us through that whole scheme from your eyes.

Why do you think I forgot I had it??

EDITOR’S NOTE: I removed the ‘forgot you had the Mutiny Trigger’ from a couple of questions but forgot to remove it from this one. Oh well.

The minute Christian got the idol, we knew we were in a good spot to make a move that could help us. It was guaranteed to save one of our numbers. Once he got the idol he was ok to go to MGI, he could pass on idol clues, throw the challenge should it be me there, idol himself at the TC and I’d play a mutiny if it were a Daln TC.

20. Who do you think should be given more credit for the move to ensure Christian lost the Wordsmith duel to put this whole thing in motion? You, Christian, or Candy? And how aware were Brenda and Jason of this scheme?

It was a joint move between Christian and I. I couldn’t have done it without him and vice versa. We were both putting faith in each other, him probably more than me. Honestly I’m not sure anymore, but I’m pretty sure Brenda was aware which is why it was me sent to MGI.

21. If Christian said “why don’t you lose the duel and play the idol”. . .would you have knowing you would have to stay on Daln? Or was that too risky?

Honestly did not even think of that. But I wish I had now. I would have made sure Moray was safe that round, I’m sure I could have gotten him to throw his vote. Then he would’ve stayed! ❤

22. Did it go through your mind what would happen if Spau lost the immunity challenge, and Christian suddenly finds himself on Spau with Brenda and Jason at TC instead of Daln? Did you have a back-up plan for what would happen there?

Not really. We were pretty dependent on Brenda getting a win. I was trying to do our rounds the same sort of time to make sure, but I chose to not think of what could happen. I feel that Christian would be back to MGI, possibly with an idol and Jason would’ve gone home. We needed Christian to do the move to keep me safe.

23. But your whole crazy scheme nearly cost you an immediate boot in round eight. This may sound crazy,

EDITOR’S NOTE: I nearly made a Carly Rae Jespen reference. No joke.

. . .but if Jason doesn’t blow the challenge, you would have been sent to Daln rather than Spau. Or did it feel like game over no matter what? Because if Spau lost, you’d be at a 5-4 disadvantage. And if Daln lost, there was no idol to protect you from Candy, Gloria, Michelle, Serg, and Jeremy from eliminating you that night. Losing that challenge on paper doomed Spau, but in reality it saved you three more rounds.

I hadn’t even really thought of that. I was glad I had made jury at this point. And Tyler was a freaking beast. I had spent about 6 hours on the tiebreaker before thinking to ask you about connecting flights. And by the time I realised I knew I was in danger. I wish I had asked Candy now, but I was still wary of it. I hadn’t done much to help her gamewise, why should she help me?

24. How much of a bummer was it that you lost the duel to Tyler? Because we would be in a reverse situation. Tyler is suddenly screwed if he heads to Spau or if he heads to Daln, thus giving the advantage to Spau.

Oh it sucked. I was sad going against Tyler anyway, I didn’t like the thought of him going home if Spau lost but I also didn’t want to be going home.

25. If Spau had the 5-4 advantage. . .would you guys have voted to merge right then? Or give it another go at reducing Daln’s numbers?

Probably merged. If we had the numbers why not run with it? Why risk the numbers swapping around? It had already happened in this game.

26. Daln voted to merge at 9. Do you think there is anything you could have done to convince them not to merge?

Doubt it. Them saying no was asking for trouble.

27. You enter the merge with nine people. Four Spau, five Daln. If Moray made the merge instead of someone else on Daln, do you think Moray would have flipped or add you as Daln’s sixth?

Nope. But I think he could have kept my as the last Spau and if need be used me as a vote to break Daln. Whether or not he would’ve is a different story.

28. You retrieved Jeremy’s fake idol. Was there ever a moment in your mind where you thought the idol was real? Do you feel better knowing you played the fake idol on the person who wasn’t being booted instead of a real idol?

Of course I thought it was real. Why else play it. I felt so embarrassed when I played it. Not a fun moment. And nope, I don’t know why but I didn’t think Candy would be the target, Brenda had shown she was a challenge threat.

29. We’re down to eight. We know all of Daln wants Brenda out next. Of course she wins immunity. Anything you did to scramble? Anything you wished you had done?

Not likely. I was lucky I had lasted this long. I had played a fairly horrible game and was aware of it. I deserved to go before Jason and Brenda and wouldn’t have felt right if I beat one of them.

30. Were you surprised Jason succeeded at working his way into the Daln dynamic compared to you? What do you think he did well at that you didn’t do? Because it triggered a vote split to send you home, and if Jason acted like a double agent it could have caused a strange 3-3-2 tie.

No. The only people on Daln I spoke to were Moray and Serg. And Serg was only in the challenge. I didn’t socialise. Honestly this game was just hard for me after the stuff with Branden went down. I hated voting nearly everyone out of this game, and I was playing more emotionally and just over it.

31. If you were in Jason’s shoes, do you think you could have survived past that crucial round with six people left?

Nope. Not without immunity or whoever his version of Moray was.

32. When you were voted out, who did you want to win? Who did you think would win? Who did you want out next? Who did you think would be out next (that one is probably easy)?

Brenda obviously. She was mostly why I was still in the game for so long. I thought Tyler had a great shot at this game too and was devastated when he got voted out. After the last game I played with him in, he came leaps and bounds and if he was at the end, he had my vote hands down. I wanted Jeremy or Michelle out. They both just seemed super dangerous to me. And I thought it would be Jason or Brenda, completely dependent on who won immunity.

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

Thank you for a great game, sorry I didn’t play as well as I wanted to, but it was one of the best games I’ve been in hands down. Next time though, can I have a tribe with less drama? 😉 And at least I got to be part of one hell of a move! That was pretty fun, people thought I was screwed and it was nice knowing I had that up my sleeve still. xx

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for playing this game!

5.11 SCWL 5 Episode 11: “Unanimous”

Date: July 10 – 14 2013
Immunity Challenge XI: Reality TV Crossword
Inspired By: An improved upon version of the SCWL 4 crossword. Much, much, much better.
Winner: Jeremy
Did He Avoid Being Blindsided: Probably.
So Much or Spau’s Dreams?: Indeed.
Voted Out: Brenda.
Vote Count: 7-0
Unanimous? Even Brenda self-voted?: Yep.

WHY REHASHING PREVIOUSLY FAILED CHALLENGES?

I forgot how many challenges I did based off of failed post-merge concepts from previous seasons. These felt like brand new challenges considering they were all functional this season.

I have been doing this as far back as SCWL 1 where I cleaned up challenges I failed in the prequel. For some reason, I need that satisfaction that I had a good creative idea and prove that I have the ability to execute it properly.

Otherwise it will be nagging at me for years and years to come. Now I’m going to be in a bit of a bind for SCWL 6 as I try to create fresh new challenges. Luckily the pre-merge of this season showed that the creative well hasn’t been exhausted yet. I shall put it out more challenges that other ORG hosts will undoubtedly copy in the future. All in the name of ORG progress!

THE ONLY BORING SCENARIO FOR THIS ROUND IS IF. . .

If Jeremy wins immunity, judging by Gloria’s confessionals and the lack of confessionals from everyone else this round, it is safe to say that Brenda will be gone 6-1. The only person Brenda can boot without winning immunity herself is Jeremy. Because he has an idol (or a suspected two) in his pocket, it seemed like Gloria would stop at nothing to remove Jeremy this round. It sounded like she would use Brenda and Jason to boot him if she needed to. And judging by the desperate situation that these remnants of Spau are in, I think it is safe to say they would follow Gloria’s lead.

FINAL FOUR ALLIANCE ON TRACK?

But it’s just as likely that the first round alliance between Jeremy, Gloria, Michelle, and Serg will dominate to the Final Four. Jeremy will have a prime shot of making it to the final immunity challenge if the others agree to let him carry his idol further.

THE CROSSWORD CHALLENGE

This was in fact the Final Four immunity challenge from SCWL 4. Clayton, Jessica, Renee, and Andrew remember this all well. It was a 3 vs. 1 handicap against Andrew, but yet he still won the dang challenge. I evaluated the challenge after the season was over and found two major flaws with it:

a) This was one of the easier challenges for a combined alliance effort to ensure the outsider doesn’t win immunity
b) The rules were too open-ended
c) Because of a), it is too critical of a challenge to leave until the penultimate round of the game.

So I tightened up the rules, added a fancier tiebreaker procedure, and held the challenge at seven when people tend to feel too confident to work hard or are searching for a Final Four alliance rather than individual immunity. Unless you’re Brenda.

It made the challenge play out extraordinarily well. I have no complaints about it. Everything went pretty much like clockwork. I was in the mindset that Brenda would pull off the upset win and make this a very interesting round.

BRENDA DOESN’T WIN + JEREMY IS THE VICTOR = OH CRAP

Jeremy comes out of nowhere to put his heart into individual challenges. If memory serves me correct, Gloria’s and Michelle’s availability was crappy at this time, so was Jason’s, and Serg was pretty dang confident he didn’t need to win immunity. Jeremy aced this challenge while Brenda missed out a handful of words. No tiebreaker was necessary.

So is Brenda going home or is Brenda going home?

BRENDA DOESN’T EVEN FIGHT

I presume Brenda was probably in a couple of other ORGs where she had a stronger chance of winning while her final days of SCWL 5 were playing out. I know her self-vote may have been unintentional because she claimed to be at the zoo, but Brenda’s self-vote surprised me. Nobody told me about any plans that Brenda tried to pitch. So I assume she didn’t bother fighting her sealed fate. I thought given Brenda’s strong efforts in challenges that it would seem odd if she gave up in the hours leading to the end of Tribal Council.

UNANIMOUS VOTE?!

In Survivor, a unanimous vote is 9-1/8-1/7-1/6-1/5-1/4-1/3-1/2-1. But here in ORGs, because of the nasty reality of self-votes (which is a rarity in my games, thankfully) a true unanimous vote is # of votes cast-0. The person has to self-vote to fulfill the criteria.

So we had an extraordinarily rare unanimous vote. 7-0. I haven’t gone through all of the spreadsheets, but off the top of my head, the last time we had a unanimous vote in this series was the second round of SCWL 2 when Kevin was voted out 8-0. And I think the only two times it has happened was during SCWL 1.

That’s right. Not even SCWL Prequel or SCWL 3 had a unanimous vote.

What is equally shocking is that we had a 8-0 vote when we were down to seven people. It’s supposed to be the rounds where 4-3 and 5-2 vote splits go down because the final major alliance of the game is being locked in to the end. Seeing 7-0 tells me that everyone remaining truly believes they will not finish fifth or sixth. This means two people are in for a big surprise.

JASON IS LAST SPAU STANDING

A history of those who are the last member standing from the minority tribe upon merge:

1: Ryan Flynn.
2: Marcelo Campos*
3: “Jonas Guarnaschelli”
4: Renee Higley

*Marcelo mutinied to the opposing tribe in round five. Otherwise Lister Potter III would fulfill this criteria.

As you can see none of those four people have ever won, and all four of those people were considered the least threatening in challenges but were active social players.

In other words, it looks like a horrid situation for Jason. However, it may be the perfect time for the trio of Michelle-Serg-Gloria to take out Jeremy’s idol or Tyler.

THE SECOND RELATIVELY BORING ROUND

Which is absolutely nothing to complain about. If there are only two out of thirteen eliminations that I can describe as a foregone conclusion with the status quo being maintained. . .then this should be crowned nothing short of an ‘A’ level season.

ROUND 11 CONFESSIONALS

BRENDA,

Why do you always talk in Caps?

ME: Because I talk too softly for my normal tone.

Aww .

I finally understand your challenge – I was making it way harder than I needed to (such a fool :D)

That was Hard … I guessed on one block because i couldn’t make it work anywhere…

LoL … Sorry – I went to the zoo and saw the Panda’s yesterday and in all the excitement … I completely forgot to vote.

Your game was amazing though

GLORIA,

ok I am calling a forfeit and sending in only one ansswer for clues to idol and don’t know if thats even right way to do it lol! if not i tried
Answer: CARAMOAN
grid:

Clue #1: !@#$#%&! !*!() -_%=_%%& %+ =!%+ #& &_ &[! [_=& &_ +*%-! &_ &[! %!X& =&!P _F _B&#%#%G &[! [#++!% #M$U%#&) #+_@ Clue #2: ‘A’! Where you at?! Clue #3: ‘M’ re-appears as its own symbol as well. Clue #4: The words you are looking for should be fairly obvious. Clue #5: The words ‘Hidden’, ‘Immunity’, and ‘Idol’ are in this puzzle. Clue #6: For those still lost here is the last clue for the section. . .there are only four vowels. I repeat there are only four vowels. FOUR vowels Clue #11: The letter ‘A’ should not be included in your answer because it doesn’t exist in the puzzle. Only the letters E, I, O, and U should be in the puzzle answer. — Clue #7: For those who have solved this puzzle and are onto the second, you probably think it is very “sweet”. Clue #8: One of the most basic childhood baking treats will lead you closer to what you seek. Clue#9: One of the words is ‘SUGAR’. Clue #10: Another one of the words is ‘COOKIES’. After this round, the clue will loop back to give you the exact answer for the first puzzle.

I VOTE: Brenda ( like her she is just challenge threat)

Confessional: believe that a blindside was possibly in the works to take Jeremy out cause he has the idol everybody thinks..I know he does if not i am pissed at myself. lol But he won immunity so they are saying brenda but to be honest I wouldn;t be surprised if I went out on blindside cause i went to Sergiu and Michelle and told them that Jeremy is gonna wipe us out of final 3 cause of that Idol if something isn’t done fast..So I could very well go this time cause I know Jeremy likes tyler and Michelle and would never be tight with me at least I don;t think so..
so didn’t want Brenda gone this tribal but she may not go if they blindside me for standing up and talking to them with what I think has to happen frther in game..I wish jeremy would get rid of that dam idol lol

JASON,

I really want to win this immunity, but I have to work until 9 tonight, so if this is due 24 hours from when you posted, the answer to 1) is b)
If it’s more than 24 hours from when you posted, just tell me and ignore that last message

Vote: Brenda Reason: Glo and Michelle didn’t pull through

JEREMY,

Question: Is Alexisonfire an answer or just Alexis because the former doesn’t relate to Survivor afaik.

Vote: Brenda Now that you are gone there are no more threats to me in challenges.

MICHELLE,

Anything to do with computers, using a program, will always lead to me never having a chance with a challenge. I try, but I am so deficient. So I downloaded the notepad but didn’t get me anywhere. So I worked out the answers I think but then couldnt get a 25/25 board going….so I have some words, but obviously it was too hard to find any diagonals. I have – Caramoan, Rupe (as in Rupert, some called him that), mud (that famous mad bath scene), tribe/s, merged, rob, treemail, skupin, reward, dream?, fib (they all tell fibs), actor/s (for some that is all they do), pay (people pay for voting wrong), ……….. and that’s it…..pitiful isn’t it. My God you better not have anything like this for the final challenges aaaagggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, keep off the challenges with computer programs aaaaaaaaaaaaggggggggghhhhhhh….I scream a lot.

I vote for Brenda because she is a demon in challenges and has to go.

SERG,

Vote: Brenda
Reason: Daln to the end

U alive mate?:))

EDITOR’S NOTE: Since when did Serg start saying ‘mate’? He has been hanging around Jeremy too much.

TYLER,

Voting confessional: Brenda, I say this with the utmost respect…After playing against you in a couple challenges I’m almost positive you’re part cyborg. Seriously, you kick all kinds of ass in these things and the last thing I want is someone from Spau going on a run, so it’s gotta be your time to go. My vote is for Brenda

TRIBAL COUNCIL #11

(BRENDA)-(GLORIA)-(JASON)-(*JEREMY*)-(MICHELLE)-(SERG)-(TYLER)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)-(MORAY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(CANDY)-(NAOMI)

You have until 1159pm eastern Saturday to answer your questions and cast your vote.

BRENDA,

1. Five original Daln. Two original Spau. We’re down to seven where the end-game scramble begins. Do you think that means the game will shift to individual based or is it inevitable that you or Jason will be eliminated tonight?

Pretty Sure it’s one of us going … but it’s not like either of us is shocked right?

2. If the game doesn’t shift this round. . .what mistake would some of the Daln members be making?

I think they’d be forgetting that someone is 5th in their alliance and fourth and that while it’s an accomplishment to get rid of the other tribe – it’s not going to change their placement once we’re gone

GLORIA,

1. Are you surprised that nobody has gone on an immunity run since the merge? Considering that last season saw the same person win seven individual immunities.

Considering that last season saw the same person win seven individual immunities. Nope not at all. I think a few people could probably win almost every challenge but I think feel it is not necessary to reign as a king or queen of challenges in this game.

2. Does that complicate the game knowing that there aren’t any legitimate challenge threats in the individual stage when challenge threats are targeted most?

Nope, not at all, cause I think everyone in finals has a fair shot at winning in different challenges.

JASON,

1. You received a vote at the last Tribal Council. Worried that it translates to a sign that you will be the next target?

Always worried, it’s pretty much either me or Brenda, so for sure I’m worried

2. Awhile back I asked if players talk to each other more once the merge hit. What’s the status of the chatter at camp knowing there are only five potential targets this Tribal Council?

I think there’s been a fair amount of chatter, everyone seems to get along well too, so that’s always nice

JEREMY,

1. For the past two Tribal Councils, you received the second highest number of votes. Out of nowhere you swoop in and claim a challenge victory. Did you truly feel like you would be bumped up to receiving the highest number of votes this Tribal Council?

No I feel like I would have been fine without winning immunity but I felt like it was best for my game to win it. Plus I actually enjoy mental challenges like that.

2. Now that you have immunity, somebody else has to suffer the fate of receiving the second highest number of votes. Do you think that stirs up paranoia at camp knowing “those votes have to go somewhere”?

I truly believe Daln will be solid until the final 5 so the only people who need to worry are Brenda and Jason. And I can only assume they will vote for each other to maximise their chance to stay.

MICHELLE,

1. The goal most people have in this game is to get to Final Four. Tonight a four-person alliance is a majority. How much of a scramble is it to lock down a four? Or can a five or six-person alliance still work at this stage?

I think the alliance in this game, as in quite a few tv survivors is the majority tribe. Of course there are always renegades and you have to be on your toes. We all genuinely like each other so very soon it is going to be very sad at tc

2. Do you think everybody has been caught in a lie thus far in the game?

Everybody caught in lie? I know of some people who have been. Not everyone though.

SERG,

1. Is it more important for other players to be predictable or for other players to find you predictable to further yourself in this game?

I dont think that it is a good thing to be predictable in this game. With so few ppl left every1 has more time to get to know the rest which could lead to predicting their moves. I guess it’s best to predict other ppl than to be predictable yourself.

2. How much do you think the target will shift between now and the Tribal Council deadline?

This game started with two blindsides and i can honestly say that you never know what will happen. I think that with this few ppl left, setting a target on some1 at start of tc doesnt mean that they will also go home. I guess it will change during this 24h

TYLER,

1. Not a whole lot else to discuss. How about the obligatory hidden immunity idol question? Anything new on the hidden immunity idol front?

I’m not the guy you want to go to for the latest on the HII front. I’ve pretty much gone out of my way to avoid any drama attached to those things the whole game.

2. How much do you worry that what you tell someone in confidence during the game will be spread to the other players now that we’re in the final stretch?

Yeah, that’s definitely an interesting question. As we get closer and closer to picking off the remaining Spaus I’m sure each person in the Daln majority is thinking about what their next move will be after that, and telling that information to the right or wrong person is perhaps the critical part of the whole game.

TC VOTES

GLO,

I VOTE: Brenda ( like her she is just challenge threat)

Confessional: believe that a blindside was possibly in the works to take Jeremy out cause he has the idol everybody thinks..I know he does if not i am pissed at myself. lol But he won immunity so they are saying brenda but to be honest I wouldn;t be surprised if I went out on blindside cause i went to Sergiu and Michelle and told them that Jeremy is gonna wipe us out of final 3 cause of that Idol if something isn’t done fast..So I could very well go this time cause I know Jeremy likes tyler and Michelle and would never be tight with me at least I don;t think so..so didn’t want Brenda gone this tribal but she may not go if they blindside me for standing up and talking to them with what I think has to happen frther in game..I wish jeremy would get rid of that dam idol lol

JASON,

Vote: Brenda
Reason: Glo and Michelle didn’t pull through

JEREMY,

Vote: Brenda
Now that you are gone there are no more threats to me in challenges.

MICHELLE,

I vote for Brenda because she is a demon in challenges and has to go.

SERG,

Vote: Brenda
Reason: Daln to the end

TYLER,

Voting confessional: Brenda, I say this with the utmost respect…After playing against you in a couple challenges I’m almost positive you’re part cyborg. Seriously, you kick all kinds of ass in these things and the last thing I want is someone from Spau going on a run, so it’s gotta be your time to go.
My vote is for Brenda

Good Game guys …

GLO: Brenda you are a PLAYER great Player..take care!

ME: Well, in a round that is historically known in the Survivor world for always having razor close votes that define the course of the game. . .ends up being the first true unanimous vote in SCWL 5, and perhaps the first unanimous vote recorded in this series since SCWL 2.

It appears everyone feels comfortable with their position. All that tells me is that there should be some surprises up ahead, and seeing how close we are to the season’s end, that could end up stinging those as they head to the jury.

That’s all for now. Good luck as we reach the conclusion of the season.

Next Time On SCWL 5:

– An extreme take on a challenge not used since SCWL 1 is brought into the fold. Will it work out just as well as it did the first time around?

– Jason has been trying for the past two rounds to penetrate Daln’s tight five person dynamic. But when Tyler is an established fifth, and paranoia reaches its peak surrounding Jeremy’s idol, will a member from Spau be more useful than ever to help someone march to victory?

– A shocking split vote at Tribal Council will leave one person absolutely screwed in terms of making it into the highly coveted Final Four roster.

– The only two boring rounds of SCWL 5 are complete. You do not want to miss the craziest ending to SCWL since the SCWL Prequel!

Date: July 15 – 18 2013
Immunity Challenge XII: Wacky Says
Inspired By: Playing Mario Party recently and we haven’t done a full out ‘Simon Says’ style game yet in SCWL. Transcription in SCWL 1, yes, but nothing to this extreme.
Winner: Jeremy
Did I Have a Bit Too Much Fun With the Bodybreak Couple?: Yep.
Was I Surprised Jeremy Demolished Another Immunity Challenge?: Somewhat.
Did I Expect Him to Sweep the Remainder of All Immunity Challenges?: Yep.
Did I Think Jason Had a Chance of Eliminating Gloria?: Yes.
Tribal council Results: Jason.
Vote Distribution: 4-2.

MAJOR TWIST DITCHED LAST ROUND AND THIS ROUND

I always have a brand new twist in the middle of the post-merge phase. The twist will always be something that I have yet to encounter or read about in ORGs. So what was the original twist I had planned for this season?

It involved the winner of the last immunity challenge reviving MGI for last round and this round. I have my notes and I must say I scratched it out then re-wrote it back in numerous times until I scratched it out for good. I won’t give out the specific details, but I thought it would be exploited to give more than the majority of all players immunity from Tribal Council, and send people home by default rather than skill. The winner of that challenge would simply have too much power.

So I went with a different twist that you will discover down the road.

WACKY SAYS

A personal favourite of mine from this season. I spent a lot of time carefully wording each instruction. That type of challenge reminds me how truly difficult it is to read instructions. Typically what happens is that veterans suck at these types of challenges because they skim it and associate it with a challenge they have done in the past. They miss the minor details that prove to be crucial in a challenge with this type of setup.

That goes for most challenges in the SCWL franchise, come to think of it. Did it play out the I wanted it to? Absolutely.

We did a similar challenge in SCWL 1 that was more primitive. However that challenge had more of a dark mark on it because Brian Meagher and Scott Grensted went to a tiebreaker round, and once Brian lost the tiebreaker, he quit the game. Thankfully history wasn’t repeated.

JEREMY DEMOLISHES EVERYONE

Again, this challenge wasn’t close. Tyler screwed up on a moustache, Jason succumbed to the pressures of needing immunity, Gloria failed the first instruction, Michelle screwed up the second instruction, and Serg left several questions blank.

As Mervin once said, my “Einstein English” tends to trip up multi-linguists in SCWL challenges. So Serg was probably at a minor disadvantage that way in a field of Aussies, Canadians, and Americans.

I wonder if Romania knows about Bodybreak?

Anyways, Jeremy wins immunity and seems a lock for Final Three thanks to having a hidden immunity still in his pocket. He is one win away from making Final Three. Jeremy is awfully close to being crowned the winner of SCWL 5. Now he just needs to figure out who to carry to the end.

GLORIA MORE THREATENING THAN JASON?

Sure enough, Jason has overcome the odds but not in the way I expected him to do so. Instead of relying upon Gloria to keep him alive, instead he is relying upon Jeremy and Tyler to eliminate Gloria from the game. That is a major blindside which many people were waiting to happen. Everyone knows Gloria wins if she makes Final Two due to her social bonds, but she isn’t a huge challenge threat to warrant going home ASAP.

After that, Jason will be gone. . . or will he?

IDOL PLAY?!

Jason is confident he is staying. Supposedly Jeremy has offered up his idol to Gloria. This is a risky move that will define the season. If Jeremy does this move in coordination with Tyler, we could have a new Final Three pact. Jeremy can easily wipe out Michelle and Serg, then have the easiest setup possible for a final immunity challenge. I was in support of this move when Jason sent me the confessional. Risky, but it looked really good on paper for Jeremy. Gloria-Michelle-Serg need to have at least two of its members gone by Final Four, and protecting Jason with the idol would certainly do it.

Yes, Jason certainly wins a jury vote if he makes it to Final Two, but Jason has been nowhere near an individual win since this game started. This is the time for Jeremy to make his move.

JEREMY CHANGES HIS MIND; JASON GONE

What may have looked like a boring vote on paper had a lot of suspense to it. I didn’t know if the idol would or would not be played until the last minute. Tribal loyalties hsitorically win out in any given season of Survivor, and here is no different.

Should Jeremy and Tyler change the outcome of the game? Yes.
But can you discount the value of a tribal bond making it to the bitter end together? No.

And that’s what makes Survivor complicated. These five have been virtually in the same camp since day one. It’s tough to break that when you feel karma will bite you for betraying one of your own by rewarding Jason with the season win.

SPAU DEAD

What a rough road it was for this tribe following the mutiny. Just when Daln gave them a godsend by delaying the merge and rallying to make it 5-5, one challenge loss and a Pagonging later sends Spau to the rail. The audience seems to support the newbie/sophomores coming together to rule this season, but I must admit I feel bad for some of the people on Spau who attempted to play a strong game but ended up on the wrong side of numbers/quitters. Welcome to SCWL.

TYLER OUR FIFTH PLACE GODDESS?

Wow. Tyler voted WITH Jason. If the idol wasn’t being played, I fully expected a 5-1 vote. Tyler missed the memo. Jeremy has the idol. Michelle-Serg-Jeremy-Gloria have been a super tight alliance. All four of them have done better in challenges than Tyler. Voting out Tyler seems like a straight forward move for everybody else in the game. Michelle and Gloria have a F2 pact, Serg assumes he could beat either of them in final immunity, and Jeremy has an idol that grants him a spot in the Final Three.

In short, the game is up in the air to the point that there doesn’t seem to be a significant downside to not giving Tyler the inevitable boot next round. It’s too bad because Tyler has been a loyal and nice guy all season, but happened to yet again make a move that he thought others would accompany him in when really he was going it alone.

ANOTHER DAY 1 ALLIANCE CONQUERS SCWL!

SCWL 1 had a 5-person alliance, so did SCWL 2, and now here we are with SCWL 5. Probst decided to have a 3-tribe season after he went through an era of 5-person alliances locking down RI through One World. I wonder if I should give that a go?

ROUND 12 CONFESSIONALS

GLORIA,

Confessional: we gotta get Jeremy out but these people are stubborn as hell right now and waited longer to even think about it than i wanted lol..so it might wipe me outta game if I fight to hard about it but I am gonna try..only cause that dam idol is gonna wipe me or some of my alliance out possibly. i think jeremy has a final deal with tyler or Michelle.

:

I VOTE: Jason (don’t like this idea think it is bad move in game but until I can talk to all others I cannot betray the alliance or so called alliance)

JASON,

So, I decided I might as well send in a confessional this game This game started out SO WELL! Spau was STACKED with ORG challenge LEGENDS, plus just enough inactives that we shouldn’t be too hurt by them, and if we did lose we could just vote them out. But then we lost, and lost, and lost some more. Once it was down to Brenda and Myself on a tribe to ourselves, I was sure we were screwed. But then things started looking up, we started winning, Candy and Christian came back, Naomi was back, things were looking up, all we needed was ONE immunity win. and we lost And that’s how I ended up here, all the way up s— river without a paddle. But there isn’t a chance in HELL I’m giving up now. I haven’t dealt with losing my entire tribe to just get voted out. Sure, it’s an accomplishment being the last Spau remaining, but there’s no way I’m going to let my association with that s— show of a what should’ve been epic tribe ruin my game. I’m ready to pull hair, win challenges, and send some of these Dalns on a hell of a ride. These guys have no idea what’s coming. I PRAY this is a challenge i’m good at, and if it’s not, I’m working on it from the minute it’s posted to the minute the challenge ends. Outwit, Outplay, Outlast.

EDITOR’S NOTE: No idea what that was supposed to be.

Well, I’d just like to say F—. I thought I had this challenge in the bag, but I mean, I’m from Spau right? nothing can go right EVER. But there’s no chance I’m letting that phase me. I have Gloria on board, Michelle is teetering, and Serg is considering voting out Tyler. There’s no way I’m not going to play every angle I can. I’m talking to everyone I can, and I don’t intend on going this round. It’s a possibility, but there is no way I’m just going to lay down and die.

Vote: Tyler Reason: Jeremy has immunity, and you’re closest to him

HOLY.S—! Somehow, I have gone from the very bottom, out next FOR SURE, to safe. When Jeremy wakes up, he’s going to give me his idol, and I’ll be with him and Tyler until F3! This game has shifted like CRAZY! I was trying to work Glo, Serg and Michelle, and now here I am with Tyler and James, them GIVING me an idol! Is that insane or WHAT! I told you that i wasn’t going to go down without a fight! It’s going to be REALLY hard to idol out Glo, but I need to look out for myself, and only myself at this point.
With that said Vote change: Glo Reason: I love you to death, but I need to look out for myself

Cancel my vote, I don’t want results posted before I can play an idol

Okay, final vote Vote: Glo Reason: I love you to death, but I need to look out for myself

JEREMY,

Vote: Jason I came real close to using the idol on you but I just wasn’t sure if you were being completely honest with me so I am just going to play it safe.

MICHELLE,

I am assuming that a co-runner up are the two ppl who did not win, when there was a final 3…..so votes for them obviously dont count here
say the winner got 6 votes, one of the others got 2, and the other 1….they are co-runner ups even though they got different vote counts? Sometimes we dont know the vote counts of everyone though

ME: Instructions are all there.

Mmmmmm yes. Mmmmmm

Omg, I feel like I am ready to scream…haha….I can’t get through ONE of your challenges….well not in a while anyway. Here is what I got up to….

ME: -Successfully completed the first instruction-

Omg that’s ridiculous… I knew it was that… Why did I write 12???

Hi Logan, I couldn’t see any rules for season 5 so I am assuming they are the same from season 4. So this was one of the rules ………………….. 1. Three hidden immunity idols are in the game. These idols may be used once any time up through the Final Four. When you say “Through” (since it is an American term), do you mean – up to the final 4 (meaning the last time it can be used is in the final 5) or it can be used in the final 4? We really need an answer to this asap as it will affect the vote. Thanks muchly

Confessional : So the reason why the tribe wall is so quiet is because it is all happening in the little chat rooms. It was a bit insane at one point, but atm we have the : The Daln 5 – which has been going for a little while now The Final 4 – which has myself, Jeremy, Gloria and Sergiu (the alliance I formed way back on day 2/3) One which has Sergiu, Gloria and myself and recently – One with Sergiu, Jason, Gloria and myself At one point Candy was added to one of the groups by someone, instead of starting a new group, enabling her to read back if she liked….well didn’t we all panic slightly! Gloria wants to get Jeremy’s idol out, but Jeremy simply isn’t going to play it because he doesn’t feel threatened, but Sergiu and I don’t want to vote out Jeremy because we have been together since the beginning. If it brings about our downfall of being in the final 3 together…so be it. I am loyal, to my own detriment, and in the real game I would be my own worst enemy. I think us final 4 are all so comfortable that we play a challenge, then go about our own lives for a few days and then come back together again. I know we will finally have to fight each other, but you know what, that is the game, we know that, we had a goal, we are just about there….and if you answer the above question the way I would like, then we SHOULD BE home free. I am so glad I picked Sergiu and Jeremy to be in an alliance with Glo and I. They are great guys. Jason is of course trying to stay in the game and it always makes me sad for the minority tribe member, but I am fiercely loyal, unless I am crossed.

?
I vote for Logan because he doesn’t answer questions when I REALLY need an answer and he should be awake by now. This answer could change everything. Aaaaaaaaaaaagggggggggghhhhhhhhhh
I am going to have to vote for Jason in the absence of your answer and by the fact that I am going to sleep and will only wake up an hour before the deadline and anything could happen with my internet, or my children could vomit all over their beds, or my little one could have a nappy incident, or I could sleep in, or my alliance may not be able to chat in time. Aaaaagghhhh. Ok, may have to change this.

ME: At Tribal Council: Final Four is the last time it can be played. After that it can be used for a major advantage in the final immunity challenge or a single juror vote converter at Final Two. Voting deadline extended to 930pm eastern.

SERG,

Vote: Jason
Reason: Daln stays together

Logan can the idol be played at the final 4? or last time u can use it is next tribal?

ME: At Tribal Council: Final Four. After that it can either be used for a major advantage at the final immunity challenge or as a single juror vote converter at Final Two.

Ok, thx

TYLER,

S—…Wacky didn’t say to draw the mustache My bad lol I know I’m out, haha. Great challenge

ME: Indeed. You completed six.

Vote: Glo, you’re an awesome person in real life. In this game you’re still awesome, fun, and a great personality, but you’re also a giant steam-roller of destruction blowing its way through this game at a rapid and alarming pace. You’re ridiculously well connected. I’ve loved working with you, but honestly there’s a reason I was trying to target you on the first night. Love ya! My vote is for Glo.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #12

(GLORIA)-(JASON)-(*JEREMY*)-(MICHELLE)-(SERG)-(TYLER)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)-(MORAY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(CANDY)-(NAOMI)-(BRENDA)

You have until 500pm eastern Thursday to cast your vote and answer your questions.

GLORIA,

1. Look at those names. Christian, Candy, Naomi, and Brenda all in order. All Spau. There’s only one Spau left. Is it safe to say that Jason is done this round?

I WOULD NEVER INSULT A PERSON AND SAY YES YOU ARE GONE THIS VOTE! Jason has fought hard to get where he is but this far in game it’s anybodys game! I cannot know everything that each individual is thinking or will do this vote.

2. On the other hand, you have to be thinking about where you fit in with the Daln tribe. Would this be the ideal round to make a move?

Any time in a game is a time to make the proper moves but I am following the gang !

JASON,

1. Vulnerable or valuable. All of the focus is on you as the last surviving Spau member. You haven’t won an individual challenge since the merge, and on top of that you screwed up in the last pre-merge challenge. So do you think your weak challenge performances is reason enough to keep you around?

Oh, I know I’m valuable, it’d be stupid to view someone with no affiliations not valuable this late in the game. I don’t think these guys should keep me for my weak challenge performance, I think they should keep me because I’m an extra vote willing to vote however.

2. How come the Daln tribe has yet to crack since the merge started? What has kept their eyes trained on exterminating Spau one member at a time?

Daln hasn’t cracked because they’re so focused on eliminating Spau. They are thinking of their group at a stage of the game where you need to be thinking about yourself. And while it’s an accomplishment to eliminate the other tribe, I think everyone needs to be more focused on winning the game.

3. If you were to make one last plea for your survival, what would you say?

I’d just tell them that I have no alliance, I’m a free vote for whoever will take me, and the second someone decides to scoop me up i’m loyal to them 100%

4. No matter what you’re the last Spau member standing. Do you feel honoured to be last Spau standing or is that not good enough?

I feel more embarrassed than anything. the only reason I’m the last Spau was because I was the weakest of the bunch of us.

JEREMY,

1. Immunity is yours once again, and once again the challenge wasn’t close. Have you been holding back in the first couple of immunity challenges since the merge or have the past two challenges happened to play to your strength?

I definitely have thrown my fair share of competitions since the merge. But I haven’t been a very social player so I thought it was time to start building a resume for when I face the jury at final tribal council.

2. Have there been conversations at camp about who would be the biggest jury threats? Or is it still too early for those conversations?

At this point I think everyone here is a bigger jury threat than I am. I have only really talked to people in my alliance and haven’t been social at all. I think these sorts of conversations are going to become quite the topic over the coming days.

ME: Extending voting deadline to 930pm eastern.

MICHELLE,

1. How come Daln hasn’t broken down at all since the merge?

Why should we? I mean we all like each other. We all get on well together, and I THINK we all trust each other.

2. Considering the last round had a 7-0 vote, is this going to be a big round? Because somebody in the majority has to go this round.

Mmmmmmmm you never know what is going to happen until the votes are actually read out. It would be silly to predict anything in this game.

SERG,

1. This game is approaching awfully close to its conclusion. Do you feel increasingly nervous each day knowing that this is the true endgame playing out?

Of course i feel more and more nervous simply because the number of players is gettling lower and lower and that fives u less options when it comes down to voting. That increases the chances of your name being written down, so i do feel more and more nervous because this game is slowly reaching the end.

2. Think your name has come up as a target at camp?

I cant be sure about this, but i can only assume it came up. With so few ppl still in the game the chances are quite high and every player has to take into consideration every move that could put them further

TYLER,

1. How disappointed would you be if a fake mustache put you out of this game?

wouldn’t feel bad at all. As a matter of fact, I’d see it as a brilliant bit of poetic irony. What can I say, I’m very literary that way.

2. This group page has been awfully quiet. Do you think this is a naturally quiet group or is every bit of communication conducted through private chats?

What’s there to talk about Logan? Do we want to throw some kind of salsa dance or sit down and have a nice game of checkers? Hell no! Were so close to the end of the game that every single last bit of information that gets leaked out can either make or break rather or not we’ll get to the end. Once all five Daln members accomplish their goal and make it to the finals…then we’ll talk.

Okay. When you vote please do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (LOGAN)
REASON: Wacky Says that it is Logan’s time to be eliminated from this game. Wacky Says the tribe has spoken. Wacky Says it is time for you to go.

Jeremy is immune. You cannot vote for Jeremy. Between now and 500pm eastern Thursday, everybody is fair game. It is time to vote. Kywac tribe, you’re up.

VOTING

GLORIA,

I am sending a vote to keep myself from getting a strike..But this vote could change because of time differences and trying to talk to everybody ok? but for now here is my vote until I can talk to others. Hope you work with all of us cause of time differences lol

:

:

I VOTE: Jason (don’t like this idea think it is bad move in game but until I can talk to all others I cannot betray the alliance or so called alliance)

JASON,

Okay, final vote

Vote: Glo

Reason: I love you to death, but I need to look out for myself

JEREMY,

Vote: Jason

I came real close to using the idol on you but I just wasn’t sure if you were being completely honest with me so I am just going to play it safe.

MICHELLE,

I am going to have to vote for Jason in the absence of your answer and by the fact that I am going to sleep and will only wake up an hour before the deadline and anything could happen with my internet, or my children could vomit all over their beds, or my little one could have a nappy incident, or I could sleep in, or my alliance may not be able to chat in time. Aaaaagghhhh. Ok, may have to change this.

SERG,

Vote: Jason

Reason: Daln stays together

TYLER,

Vote: Glo, you’re an awesome person in real life. In this game you’re still awesome, fun, and a great personality, but you’re also a giant steam-roller of destruction blowing its way through this game at a rapid and alarming pace. You’re ridiculously well connected. I’ve loved working with you, but honestly there’s a reason I was trying to target you on the first night. Love ya!

My vote is for Glo.

JASON: Idk why I had to be lied to to be voted out, but okay. Good luck guys

ME: Well, it was only five rounds ago that the game was 5-5. Five rounds later, and you successfully complete the Pagonging.

You have successfully played it safe for weeks as you maintained tribal lines. But now that’s gone. It is truly a free-for-all. I cannot wait to see how this plays out.

Your next immunity challenge will be posted at 1100pm eastern. It’s non-live. Good luck.

01: GLO

JASON EXIT INTERVIEW

You’re the last Spauser standing in this game. Isn’t it time we get this dang exit interview process over with?

1. You were one of the later picks to be on the Spau tribe. Christian picked you in the sixth round, and you picked Candy. You and Candy appeared to have no relationship at all. So why pick Candy?

1. I knew Candy was strong and dedicated, and she could be nothing but helpful to a tribe. Her and I have had a rocky relationship, but unlike a lot of people on the original Spau, I wasn’t looking at personal relationships

2. Christian said he wasn’t as much of a loner as portrayed in the episodes. How much of a relationship did you have with Christian from the start of the game?

2. I talked to Christian a fair amount, I wouldn’t say he was a loner, he wasn’t in the inner circle, but it’s not like we ignored him

3. Kodi joins your tribe after you guys lose the immunity challenge in the second round. You changed your vote from Albee to Kodi. What would have needed to happen in order for you to keep your vote against Albee?

3. I needed to become 100% confident in my standing in the alliance of people voting against Albee, and I wasn’t.

4. You guys win the third immunity challenge of the game after that. Had a dominant alliance within Spau emerged yet?

4. There wasn’t really a dominant alliance, I mean, things on Spau were changing way too much with Drama and stuff to really set-up a concrete alliance

5. Who do you think was responsible for letting Christian take Spau’s hidden immunity idol and send himself to MGI?

5. I think everyone was kind of responsible, I mean, we all knew we had it, and it would be more beneficial for the tribe as a whole if he used it while on Daln than on Spau

6. You get to be the thirteenth person asked about the Danial incident. Anything to add as to what happened there? Did you ever get to interact with Danial?

6. I’ve played a game or two with Danial, he never really went off on me, I think he actually kind of likes me, but I mean, the way he acted was unacceptable, and that’s really all that needs to be said.

7. Who do you think truly had control over who was voted out when on your tribe at each Tribal Council?

7. Branden had a lot of control of Spau (until he quit) He was who convinced me to vote out Kodi instead of Albee, props to Branden for the amount of control he had over Spau

8. It seemed like you and Albee didn’t get along particularly well. Did you have a tough time being in an alliance that included Albee?

8. As to my knowledge, the alliance actually didn’t include Albee. I actually liked Albee and we got along pretty well until he was voted out, then all hell broke loose

9. Would you have ditched the alliance if Albee had not been isolated on MGI away from you?

9. I don’t think so, at that stage, I think it was a little too late to ditch the alliance

10. Candy mutinied after she got her way in voting out Danial. Do you think there was no way to appease Candy and make her stay on Spau? Where was she in terms of the pecking order if you lost?

10. I think Candy made a good move mutinying. There’s no way we could’ve changed her mind. I think she made the right move, she wouldn’t have gone at the first TC we lost, but I do believe she wouldn’t have made merge

11. Following the immunity challenge loss after the mutiny, Branden quits. If Branden stayed in the game, what were your intentions going to be?

11. Honestly, I was trying to get something going with Branden. At the beginning of the game he and I didn’t have the best relationship, so an alliance with him would’ve been unsuspected.

12. At that Tribal Council you guys send Chance home. If Chance hadn’t screwed up the flags/logos to cost you guys the challenge, would you guys have voted him out regardless?

12. He was the weakest member of the tribe, he shouldn’t have even made it that far.

13. So Chance goes, and Albee re-joins Christian at MGI. How come Christian and Albee were always the ones that Spau wanted to send to MGI?

13. Well, Albee just didn’t really get a long with the tribe, and we knew Christian had an idol, and I don’t think anyone on such a small tribe wanted to risk having the idol there.

14. Round six comes and it’s the secret reward challenge. Did you suspect that Brenda, the same person who was the leader in past challenges, had taken the rewards?

14. I knew Brenda at least checked the page, because she said she accidentally did, but I didn’t think she had taken any rewards

15. How were you, Naomi, and Brenda able to not point fingers at each other and instead agree to vote out Albee and send Naomi to MGI? How did you guys drop the ugly subject of who cost the tribe a valuable immunity challenge?

15. Brenda and I knew how close Albee and Naomi were, or at least how much Naomi wanted to work with Albee, so we had to end that before it got out of hand

16. If you had the Mutiny Trigger, would you have gone to MGI that round instead of Naomi?

16. Probably, yea

17. How much of that victory in the Wordsmith challenge next round was because of Brenda? Do you think everyone else performed less in challenges because Brenda tended to lead the charge?

17. Brenda lead that challenge 100%. She’s a smart cookie, she had words planned out after the first letter, and she is the only reason we won not only that challenge, but most of the challenges we did. I don’t think everyone preformed less as much as I think they were a bit overshadowed

18. This is a question I have asked every Spau member thus far. What happens if you and Brenda lose the Wordsmith challenge and are joined by Christian who is holding an idol? Would you have been out?

18. I think Brenda would’ve been out, Christian and I had talked quite a bit, so if Christian were to vote strategically, he’d vote out Brenda, if he were to vote based on challenge performance, I would’ve been out.

19. But instead the plan with the Christian loses-Spau wins-Candy throws vote away-Christian uses idol-Moray goes home-Naomi uses Trigger-Christian and Candy mutiny all went down smoothly, shockingly. How strange was it for you to be stuck alone at camp with Brenda for over a round as this all went down?

19. It was SO WEIRD. A tribe of two people is always a bit strange, knowing you’ve been that decimated kind of sucks

20. It’s 4 vs. 4 and 1 vs. 1 on MGI. Everything rides on this challenge. And. . .you screw up. You couldn’t figure out Jeremy’s cryptogram. What in the world happened there?

20. Honestly, my cryptograming skills are absolutely TERRIBLE, I felt SO BAD after I lost that challenge

21. What amazed me most is that the vote was 3-1-1, 3/5 players received votes. . .and you didn’t receive a single vote after that huge error! How were you able to avoid the target?

21. I had a fair alliance going, and I guess, luckily for me, people wanted to keep their alliance together instead of vote out the weakest in challenges
The rest will be answered when I get home from work

22. And I think you changed your vote that round too. You changed it to Christian because “you were worried about his connections to Daln”. When you’re going into a merge down 5-4, wouldn’t connections with the other tribe be a good thing?

22. I knew Daln was tight, and odds are we wouldn’t get them to crack, and after Christian, I had the most connections on Daln, so it was partially to my benefit to vote him out, if we couldn’t get one person to flip, at least I’d be the last Spau standing and have more time to scramble

23. What connections did you think Christian had anyway?

23. Honestly, I’m not sure what connections I thought he had, I just know he’s a likeable person, and odds are he made some connections

24. Daln agrees to merge. You didn’t invest a ton of time in challenges until your final round of the game. Was your strategy to lay low when Spau entered the merge in the minority?

24. Honestly, challenge timing was just REALLY bad for me. I was always busy with Family or work, and those two are more important than the game. Anyone who has seen me in other games knows I go 100% in challenges

25. The first post-merge round and you guys target Jeremy. How come Jeremy? Did you think he had the idol?

25. Honestly, at merge, Candy told us to boot Jeremy, she was the only one who knew much about Daln after being there for a couple rounds, so we just followed what she said.

26. At that TC Naomi played what she thought was an idol on Brenda. Did you know of this plan beforehand?

26. We all knew this plan beforehand, we thought that Idol was our saviour, but not only was it fake, it was played on the wrong person!

27. Candy is gone. You, Naomi, and Brenda against five Daln. Why did you choose to fully commit yourself to Daln at this point? How come not take another crack at flipping someone else to create a deadlock or a 5-3 majority?

27. I knew there was no chance of getting a Daln to flip, but Glo was telling me that she could get me somewhere in with her Daln alliance, and I knew that wasn’t too likely, but I do think it was more likely to get into an alliance with Daln than to get 2 Daln members to flip

28. You are told by Gloria that the round will be a split vote. Did you think about exploiting the split vote to somehow create a 3-2-2-1 vote in Spau’s favour and send a Daln member home in a confusing mess?

28. It was considered, but I knew Daln would’ve thought of it too. I also knew that even if it was a split vote, the best we’d get was a tie, and we would’ve lost in the re-vote.

29. Brenda wins immunity, so Naomi goes. Did Brenda winning immunity hurt your own personal plans overall or did it not matter who went home?

29. At this stage, I didn’t care who went home, as long as it wasn’t me

30. In the following round Brenda goes home 7-0. Nothing really to cover there. If Jeremy hadn’t won immunity, would Gloria and others have kicked out Jeremy that round?

30. Not a chance, you can see from voting confessionals, everyone had already drank the Daln kool-aid.

31. But Brenda goes and it’s down to six. You lose immunity. Jeremy wins. He offers to give you the idol. However, you get voted out 4-2 because Tyler was the only one willing to spare you. How come you couldn’t crack Daln? It seemed like they were having a lot of disagreements about how the endgame should play out.

31. Gloria, Serg and Michelle had masterfully hidden their alliance, or Jeremy just somehow thought that for some reason he’d get to the finals with them. Everyone had their blinders on, and no one was budging from where they were at because it was the first time they were really confronted with the ability to make a beneficial game changing move.

32. Who do you think contributed the most to you going home at six? Anything you wish you had done differently to make it to Final Four?

32. Everyone having their blinders on is the only reason I went home

33. Who did you want to win? Who did you think would win? Who did you want to go home next? Who did you think would go out next?

33. I wanted Glo to win of course! Glo’s such a sweetheart, she never knows when to shut up, but it just adds to her charm Glo

34. If you have any other thoughts, please share. On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for playing this game!

34. Nothing really to add, I LOVED this game so much, it was one of my favourites, I played my heart out, did the best I could with the cards I was dealt, and it is what it is really

Next Time on SCWL 5:

– After nearly blowing the game pre-merge, the core of Daln has now made it to the last five players standing after breezing through the post-merge phase and eliminating all four remaining Spau members.

– But a Final Four may already be locked in. Tyler has not only been outside of the Final Four alliance that has been in existence since day one, but he is the only one who didn’t eliminate Jason at Tribal Council.

– But he isn’t done fighting. After declaring Gloria to be the biggest jury threat remaining, Tyler puts his all into the immunity challenge. Will his efforts come out short like Candy, Brenda, Naomi, and Jason before him or can he overcome the most dominant alliance this season?

– And the Tribal Council snoozers are over. Every Tribal Council until the end of the game will be ranked upon the greatest TCs of all time.

5.13 SCWL 5 Episode 13: “The Extra Immunity”

Date: July 19 – 24 2013
Immunity Challenge XIII: SCWL 4 Medley
Is This a Tradition: Yep. Right from SCWL 1. I always find it neater to do a medley of tasks from the previous season rather than the current season.
Have You Combed the Internet for Every Moustache Out There?: Probably. I resorted to freakin’ board game characters.
Winner: Sergiu.
How Many People Have Won Individual Immunity Post-Merge?: Four. In fact,  matches same number of winners in SCWL 4 which allowed a stretch of double immunities and had two additional immunity challenges.
Who Received the Most Votes: Tyler.
Tribal Council Vote Spread: 3-2.
Hidden Immunity Idol Played: Jeremy gave his idol to Tyler. He voted Gloria too, thus making himself and Tyler immune from attending Tribal Council.
Surprised Jeremy Gave Up the Idol Rather Than Guarantee the Final Three Spot: Yes.
Real Tribal Council Results: Michelle and Gloria vote each other by default. Serg eliminates Gloria.
Holy Crap, Serg Was In On the Plan Too?: Yep.

JEREMY GOES TO TYLER

Jeremy wants to save Tyler this round. He knows he is no longer apart of the alliance, and he also knows that playing an idol at four means he will only have a 1/3 shot of winning the final immunity challenge. Experience technical difficulties and he is out on day 38. So he goes to Tyler. Someone who is fifth in the alliance and weak in challenges. In addition, Jeremy approaches Sergiu. These three know that Gloria and Michelle will take each other to the Final Two. But how can Sergiu do it without explicitly betraying the alliance and keeping himself with a road to day 39 no matter where he goes?

JEREMY GIVES THE IDOL TO TYLER

That’s right. Jeremy is giving away his guaranteed spot on day 38 in order to keep Tyler. What Jeremy doesn’t know is that Sergiu has been keeping up with Tyler all game. Tyler plays the idol. Sergiu, Gloria, and Michelle vote for him, but because Sergiu told everyone that he was voting Tyler ahead of time, absolutely no one feels betrayed.

SERGIU HAS ALL THE POWER

Sergiu can act shocked that Jeremy played the idol on Tyler. The weakest competition is safe while his strongest competition has been significantly weakened. In addition he has a proxy gun to his head to decide who goes home between Michelle and Gloria. He has individual immunity from the medley which means he has all the power.

JEREMY REALLY WANTED SERGIU OUT

Jeremy’s original plan was to use his idol on Tyler in order for Gloria and Michelle to take out Sergiu. However, Jeremy doesn’t have immunity. My oh my that could have been a very different scenario.

MICHELLE AND GLORIA FORCED TO GO AGAINST EACH OTHER

I am sure these two didn’t expect to have to go against each other until day 38 at the earliest. But because of the all-male sneak attack, both must plead and beg to stay. I am sure they were both cutthroat behind the scenes despite their public outcry and truly caring about one another. But who will Sergiu choose?

THE PERCEIVED SOCIAL THREAT GOES

Tyler finally gets his wish in a way nobody anticipated. Sergiu takes out Gloria. It’s interesting because Gloria may act a bit crazier, but her and Michelle are both playing a very social game. Gloria may be a bit stronger at challenges, but I think Jeremy and Sergiu can cover all of Gloria’s strengths between them. Michelle can be strong at challenges from time to time.

MICHELLE SHOULD FEEL LUCKY

Anytime you stay in a 50/50 vote and the other person shares the same threat level as you and same level of loyalty with the person in control should feel a bit lucky. But Sergiu must have chosen Gloria for a reason. Sergiu is a bit of a cold player who put a lot of thinking into his move. I don’t know what was Michelle’s pitch, but she must have made some sort of plea that made Sergiu think that he could eliminate Michelle down the road whether on day 37 or day 39.

PAST VOTES LOOM AHEAD

If Sergiu and Michelle vote together next round they will automatically survive to the Final Three. In my mind I knew that Tyler or Jeremy would have to go next round because needing only one person to vote with you is far less of a gamble than relying on a unanimous vote. Jeremy playing his idol on someone else this round did make me feel worried. However, I figured that Jeremy would be one step ahead and intend to win next round’s immunity.

And he couldn’t ask for a better challenge to suit his needs.

FINAL FOUR!

Jeremy! Michelle! Sergiu! Tyler! All four have made it to the Final Four, and for the first time ever in the series, all four truly have a shot at winning this game. I am anticipating a Michelle victory because I think Sergiu will stick with her, but Jeremy winning next round’s immunity could send Sergiu or Michelle to the rail. And don’t forget that everybody loves an underdog like Tyler. He could be underestimated, dragged to the Final Two, and possibly win this game.

GLO = 5TH PLACE GODDESS

And as everybody obsessed over, Gloria was this season’s fifth place goddess. A placing that is most coveted besides first. Ryan Huckla, Scott Grensted, Jeric Remojo, and Jamie Lee can welcome their newest member.

Who knew Gloria’s second biggest ally winning immunity would be the biggest reason why she is sent home. Otherwise Gloria taking Michelle to the Final Two and winning by a unanimous vote was becoming the most likely option at this point of the game. The only way I thought Gloria could go home is because an idol would be used offensively by Jeremy at F4 to send her home by default, or the third person in the Final Three would take Michelle to the Final Two.

But in a way, the most likely scenario where she gets voted out at F3 did happen because it was the person with immunity that viewed her as a bigger threat over Michelle.

GLORIA,

Now they all say they wanted to make a move but never messaged a thing about what to do..so now Jason is gone and now I find that tyler wanted me out since day one, unreal after I wanted him back from MGI so bad wow! Big slap in face to find out in vdeo lol
anyways I have made final 5 and now am lying to Jeremy something I don;t like doing trying to keep me Michelle and sergiu to final 3 which I find virtually almost impossible with him being a challenge king and hving idol
so thats where I stand right now tryig to get Jeremy to consider me for a final 2 deal which is not what I want at all and I don;t beleive he is gonna take me so THERE>>it sucks now lol
I am gonna lie and become a corrupt dam player dammit all!
OK
OK
I have
Question before I send in all my stuff ok.
question on first part of challenge ok?
you said switching letter on all people voted out.
So you are not calling a winner a person voted out correct
So, you are not calling a winner a person voted ot so don’t use winners in the list correct?
also are runner up considered persons voted out in your eyes cause i need to know before submitting my answers to you
give me examples of winners and what you consider votes out at finals cause it is confusing ok
i consider only the winner as only person we must not do switches on the list but you never stated that lol
if it is switching on vote outs then winners would not be on list..but I do not know if you consider runner ups as vote outs heLP
another question can we have all the letters together and do they have to all be in lower case or upper case like you had
not submitting what I have done till you get back to me LOGAN and answer my questions

EXAMPLE ONLY OK? can it be done like this: JONSACHRISTOPHER or like this Jonsa Christopher

even counting the winner corret just do everybody every season e en the winners correct
from 1st to last each season
first 8 seasons
like Richard hatch tina wesson count them when they win their season too right lol

can ipick the same 5 numbers if I want to lol
example:0 0 0 0 0
give me answer please so I can post my mumbers

ME: They must be higher than 0, and yes, I suppose you can pick the same numbers. . .but why would you?

ok here they come then
do you mean single digit whole numbers like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
or can it be number like 22, 23, 33, 34, 42 this is example or do you want set of 5 single digit whole numbers
hello time is running out need answer
just give me dang example yourself heefire lol:

CONFESSIONAL: I want us 4 in the pact final 4u and that all I can say about that. wish the hell that eremy would just play his dam idol so s— would stop with us 4 and every man for themselves and may best man win but doublt jeremy would just play his idol for laughs and giggles would be stupid move. Will Jeremy give his idol ot Tyler I think that is possible..
so vote is coming!
I VOTE: TYLER ( loved him to death but was sad he told what he thouht of me like he did in video) IF Half of what he said was ture and I had that much control,l I would have done things differently long before now lol
LOGANS WHOSE YOUR DADDY?? LOL lmao

I VOTE: Michelle ;_;

hope to be honored in another of your games sometime lol

I meant to write hope you honor me by letting me play in another of your games one day lol

hope you have some type of game in future that Maybe i can play in who knows!
IT WAS A GAS!

JEREMY,

I’m on vacation ATM and only have access to my phone. So just doing the minimum to avoid inactivity strike.

Vote: Glo Reason: I’ve loved playing with you and the energy you have brought to the game. Sorry. Also I choose to play my idol on Tyler. ***___—THE IDOL—___***

MICHELLE,

Hey Logan, do you have to do the names all in caps and stuck together? I have done them like this (Gloria Query would be) Rlogia Query
I think I might go insane fixing them al

Ok…it is now my birthday and I have just finished the mega challenge….tell me if I have to change all the names…..knowing me, I will have one name wrong right near the beginning but bugger if I’m checking. Checked the maze and corrected 2 mistakes, but will probably fall over in the name part. My word doc isn’t in order…sorry, but I don’t want to lose anything by moving anything around

I am voting for Tyler because your damn idol rules are stuffing EVERYTHING up. Aaaaggghhhhh. I guess that’s the point, but really.

;_; I vote for Glo, that is all.

SERGIU,

Logan, lets say i vote for someone… and they have highest number of votes but he used an idol. I go to a new tc with those who voted fro him, but i keep immunity right?

ME: Correct. Your immunity keeps you safe this round no matter what.

Vote: Tyler
Reason: I am staying loyal to my f4 while also making a stratigical move to keep the idol in the game so that jeremy can use if for me if he wins immunity next challange

Vote: Gloria Reason: This wasnt an easy decision, but i ultimatply went with my gut feeling. I dont appreciate you trying to buy me over with the fact that u have information from tyler and jeremy but that has little to do with the reason why i am voting u out. Also i think u will be shocked if u ever hear that it was acualy my idea for jeremy to play his idol for tyler so that the three of us go to a new tc where i have immunity and ultimatly have all the power cuz u two can only vote for each other. It is a game with the motto outwit outplay and outlast and i made a move that will put me in a better position. Hope u understand and try and respect my game. Love u glo glo, but this was something that i had to do

TYLER,

You gotta cut the head off the insanely sweet snake in order to get ahead in this game. I’ve been waiting for so long to make my move against you Glo and when it happens it’s just going to be so fantastic. I’m going to feel like Cochran voting out Malcolm. The big linchpin in my game is finally gone. But of course this is also by far the most nervous I’ve felt at a tribal, so really anything can happen at this point. Just hoping my boys Sergiu and Jeremy stick with me… My vote is for Glo

TRIBAL COUNCIL #13

(GLORIA)-(JEREMY)-(MICHELLE)-(*SERGIU*)-(TYLER)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)-(MORAY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(CANDY)-(NAOMI)-(BRENDA)-(JASON)

Sergiu has asterisks around his name. This indicates he is immune from Tribal Council this round. You have until 1100am eastern Tuesday to answer the questions, send in your votes, and tell me who is your daddy and what does he do.

Eh, you can forget about the ‘daddy’ part.

GLORIA,

1. You guys did it. Between Danial and Jason, the only Daln name there is Moray. Other than that it’s been a flawless run since the Kayde boot. You guys have had a loooong time to plan for what happens when it’s just the five of you. Has anything changed within the Daln dynamic since the pre-merge phase?

Nope, only one thing changed! I got kicked between my eyes with what Tyler thinks of me in this game, did not see that one coming! I am truly wondering when Tyler will do a video bowing to Boston Glo the way he puts it. LOL

2. This is the first time since the Moray boot where you had only three options of who to vote at Tribal Council. How do you make sure it’s not you when there are so few options?

You can’t always make sure it’s not you..This is where loyalty to the alliance weighs heavy in the mind of all players and I am hoping that Tyler has NOT Destroyed my game completely for one more chance to continue in game..But he has stirred up a load of crap for me to have to deal with! I could only wish I am everything he says about me lol

3. In the videos, it seemed like Tyler called you out for what he claims is a major social game that could threaten for jury votes. Yet you didn’t seem too angered, hurt, or particularly moved by that response. How come Tyler’s accusation never affected you?

Everything he said about me has affected me, but anger towards him will not solve the problem I am facing at this tribal. There is nothing I can say or do that is gnna turn his head from what Tyler James Linder thinks of me in this game..He has rambled on in the questions and answers about me and in his video about me..It is better for me to concentrate and think of what is best for myself and and others in this game. I trust my alliance! and thought that Tyler was part of that trust with me WOW the end lol

JEREMY,

1. This isn’t the first time where a player has to go away for a round this late in the game. How do you recover from a sudden splash of inactivity so late in the game? Do you think it is an advantage at this point because challenges and votes become much more crucial as we enter the final two rounds of this game?

Inactivity is never a good thing. I am at a major disadvantage because I’m not able to properly compete in challenges and have less time to talk with everyone.

2. Last round’s vote was 4-2. Tyler confessed publicly that he was part of the “2”. Does this mean that Tyler is automatically in the hot seat? Or are all Daln members treated equally?

As the other answers show Tyler is definitely in a bad position. We managed to keep attention away from the four person alliance long enough but at this stage there is no reason for deceit.

3. Five immunity challenges has seen four different winners. I can’t think of a season where so many people wore the necklace in so few rounds. Do you think everyone here is equally threatening in challenges?

I think we all have our strengths in the challenges and this vacation has taken away mine. So yeah at the moment I think everyone has a good chance of winning immunity.

MICHELLE,

1. You’re one of only two people in this game who has yet to win a challenge. Do you think everybody views you as someone who will never win an individual challenge?

.Ok , there are several issues at play here………………..a. You keep giving challenges which require some sort of computer program, or at least excel proficiency to at least have a level playing field. Although I am an absolute demon with the internet, the program side is lacking. I can’t compete. …………b. I am a working mother (well 3 days a week), with a husband who is always away at work, so I think I do fairly well with what I DO give to challenges…many times A LOT more than other players. But time does not equate to wins………. ………..c. I think I do really well in tribe challenges, doing one part really well. As you can see in the last results, I do well, but not good enough. In 3 of the 5 org games where I played individual immunity challenges (getting past the merge) I never won once, but came awfully close………. ……..SO…people can think what they like, but there will always be someone/people who never win an IIC.

2. Why should this tribe keep you?

Because I have been loyal and have never thought of joining another alliance

3. Outside of the crazy Moray boot, hidden immunity idols haven’t really seemed to be acknowledged or spoken of at all since the game started. Do you think the final idol is still actively in circulation amongst a Daln member?

Well, seeing this alliance has been going on for ages and we are close, we know who has an idol.

SERGIU,

1. You’re in the Final Four. Are you under the impression that everyone else is at your mercy tonight and will beg for you to vote with them?

I camt say anyone is at my mercy, i mean having immunity defenetly gives u an advantage because it makes u safe… but it doesnt give u complete power over the vote.

2. I can’t recall a tribe that has been so nice and kind towards each other from day 1 through to the end of the game. Is that the key to this tribe’s success since the beginning? No big ORG egos getting in the way of the tribe, and nobody who felt like they were doomed because of friendships outside of the game?

We are all nice to each other because we get along great and no1 pushed anyones buttons… however we reached a point were we can only vote some1 from our alliance out, so this just turned into a whole new game. As far as egos. there havnt been any clear signs of them but we all have opinions and sometimes we push ours a bit to far, lol

3. What is your biggest worry as we enter the Final Four? Do you feel like the decision you make this TC could end up costing you the game in the very next round?

The biggest worry i think is that with so few ppl left, it can always be you that goes home… I defenetly think that this TC will affect the next one but not sure if it will be in a good or a bad way.

TYLER,

1. Do you think that because you called out Glo in front of the whole tribe has essentially given Jeremy and Michelle a free pass for this TC?

Jeremy and Michelle already have a free pass to final four to begin with. I know for a fact that the four Daln members besides me are all in a pact to get to final four, so ONCE AGAIN in my life I’m on the outside looking in. So yeah, thanks guys.

2. You outlined why you believe Glo needs to be voted out. Now outline why you think you should personally stay in this game.

You guys should keep me because I’ve not done ANYTHING in this game. I haven’t even come close to winning a challenge, I barely if ever socialize with people over private message, and I’ve basically just floated a long and ridden this alliance this far without making any individual moves for myself. If you want Boston GLO-b (my new nickname for Glo ) to just keep running this tribe with an iron fist then go right ahead, but the fact of the matter is even if she never turned on Daln she’s got key connections and personal friendships with basically EVERY member of Spau that’s on the jury. I’m floating by on my own private island…

3. Is it tougher to stir up the pot in a group of less controversial people to shake up the game compared to people who may be ORG experts but love drama?

I’m really not trying to stir the pot or create a bunch of drama or controversy. First of all that video was basically half tongue and cheek and I think everyone gets that. Secondly all I’m trying to do is open people’s eyes and make them realize that if you don’t get Glo out now she’s going to run away with the game.

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

VOTE: (Logan)

REASON: TRUE OR FALSE: Logan is annoying little pest more so than a quality host. T. I hate to vote you out now because we will sadly be left with you bragging about becoming a goddess, or a g.oddess, but hey, it’s better than you somehow slipping to the end again. I mean, five seasons in a row? Really?

Alright. Serg has immunity. You can’t vote for him. The other four are fair game. Between now and 1100am eastern Tuesday, it is time to vote. Dal–er, Kywac tribe, you’re up.

Okay. The idol is activated. That means this Tribal Council is null and void. Tyler you are safe. And unless Jeremy pulled a bizarre move, I would imagine everyone assumes he is safe as well.

And yes, that assumption would be correct. Tyler and Jeremy can relax at camp.
.
.
.
Gloria, Michelle, and Serg will stay behind for a new Tribal Council. Serg retains his immunity which means we are in a highly unusual situation. The “real” Tribal Council will be posted very soon.

SERG: Ow boy..

TRIBAL COUNCIL #13B

(GLORIA)-(&JEREMY&)-(MICHELLE)-(*SERGIU*)-(&TYLER&)

Ampersands indicate Jeremy and Tyler are safe thanks to the idol. Sergiu is safe due to winning individual immunity.

You have until 1200pm eastern Wednesday to answer your questions and vote. But please feel free to do it sooner.

GLORIA,

1. When Christian played the idol, it was you, Michelle, Sergiu, and Moray who had to stay behind. Moray went home. Here we are down to five and the same scenario is happening. Except your odds are much worse, and ultimately the only vote that matters is Serg. Do you regret playing your hidden immunity idol during the Moray vote? Otherwise Michelle would be automatically eliminated.

No I have no regrets, cause at that time votes could have gone any kinda of way in that 4 way tribal. Wish I had idol but no regrets!

2. What is your plea to Sergiu to keep you and boot Michelle?

My plea is I have been loyal to my alliance, brought info to all my alliance, gave clues in good faith to all in my alliance for one of them to find idol, stuck my neck out to keep our numbers higher with other tribe in cross messages to Jason an and brought all info to my alliance. In tribal council with 4 of us when we all voted for Christian I stayed loyal to Sergiu and did not betray him and we talked and talked and resolved a serious situation together and survived a very tough time together. Sergiu and I have suffered together and survived this far together and i feel I would benefit him further in this game..

3. What happens next round? Because you’ll have two members from each voting bloc returning to camp.

Because you’ll have two members from each voting bloc returning to camp.
What happens next is the fate of wisdom on decisions that need to be made..

MICHELLE,

1. I am guessing everyone knew Jeremy had the idol for a long time. Do you think the Final Two and Final Three deals will change after this Tribal Council? Or are the battle lines well known at this point?

Yes, us 5 have known he had the idol for a long time. The sad thing is, is that Glo gave her whole alliance the clues and then he goes and uses it against her, and the rest of his alliance. But that is the game. I think battle lines are definitely drawn.

2. What is your plea to Sergiu to keep you and boot Gloria?

I have always stayed fiercely loyal, often to the detriment of my game. Glo and I trusted you implicitly and this is so awful for all of us. I formed this alliance on day 2 because I thought we would all work well together and you gave me good vibes. I was asked to make other alliances….but I couldn’t even entertain them because of our alliance. I am not going to have a go and Gloria here.

3. If it’s you tonight, all of the blame lies with Sergiu. Do you think Sergiu is doomed to lose a jury vote from either you or Glo, depending on who he votes out?

He isn’t doomed, he is in such an awful position, one which I wouldn’t want to be in

SERGIU,

1. Tough decision. You have immunity. Michelle and Gloria are essentially casting default votes unless they self-vote. You are playing the Final Three scenario two rounds early. What are all of the different perspectives that go into casting this vote?

Very very tough decision.. This vote is going to be the hardest one i have to cast simply because the three of us have been together since the begining… i didnt imagin me being in such a sitiation, or at least not so early. I am having lots of thoughts right now but making a decision will come down to what my gut is telling me to do… It will come down to who i think is the biggest threat.

2. Why would you keep Gloria?

Gloria is one of the most active social players in this game. We get along great and have had many great talks regarding both game but also personal life. I would simply keep her because of her loyalty and honesty. However the same applys for Michelle aswell.

3. Why would you keep Michelle?

Michelle is one of the sweetes persons i have met and i have great respect for her. She was also loyal to me and always made sure if i felt angry or confused, she would try and calm me down and explain what was meant. I will have an impossible choice to make but it is one that needs to be done. I guess i need to hear from both of them their view and after that make a decision

TYLER: Aint nobody gonna come between me and my ORG.
GLORIA: LOL

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

ME: Oh, and I screwed up on recapping the Moray vote. It was Tyler that was left behind. Not Michelle.

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: Because I don’t have immunity. I have no other choice, dangit!

Okay. Michelle and Gloria will be voting for each other unless they end up self-voting. The only reason why they could potentially self-vote is because past votes can still come into play at Final Four. It’s not like the Final Three where votes are a given because past votes are no longer relevant at that point. Provided Gloria and Michelle cast a vote, Sergiu will be deciding who goes home.

It is time to vote (again). You/Sergiu has until noon eastern Wednesday to decide who goes home. He’s up.

JEREMY: Sorry for this Glo. I really did enjoy playing the game with you.

GLORIA: Jeremy Bell we were a great alliance of 4, thanks!

ME: Well that is perhaps the craziest Tribal Council thus far in the game. I can’t recall a time where an exclusively Daln Tribal Council has had a straight-forward vote.

With two members of each voting bloc alive in this game, it seems like we’re in for a complicated finish.

All that’s left is four players, three Tribal Councils, two immunity challenges, one winner, and most importantly, zero hidden immunity idols.

TYLER: Best of luck Jeremy Bell Sergiu Zablau and Michelle Pearce-Denovan you all no matter what happens

SERG: For me it will be quite impossible to do within the next 24h because i just found out i need to go to the univerity to check something for my collage applications..

SERG: It would be great for me if we could do it on the 30th or 31st July… pretty much any time would be fine with me…

GLORIA EXIT INTERVIEW

1. On Opening Day, you became a captain. It was clear during the challenge that you were confused. Who was the reason that you became a captain?

I was given answer by Blly boy I think. To be sure someone gave me the answer and i threw it on wall for laughs and giggles and Bam I it was right..LOL

2. Historically in this series, the person who becomes the second captain always does better overall than the first captain. Do you think this is coincidence or do you think there is something being the second captain that has some benefit? Because Branden was out pretty dang early.

Nah I don’t put anything to the thoughts that 2nd Captain does better than first..If a Captain lays back and isn;t foreceful they can glide thru the game like a real tema memeber and not like some kind of master or GOD lol

3. This is something I have been curious about since the second round of the game. Why did you pick Moray to be on your tribe right away? Right after Opening Day you were bent on getting him out of the game. Why was there a sudden change?

I picked Moray cause he was one of only folks online talking to me and was funny and hell and thought our perosnalities would mesh..Then bam he hits me with something like his profection was I would be first or 2nd off which struck me weird to say to your captain..But then after the selections of our team were made hom and Alex took off into wild blue yonder leaving me lotta the loop and I knew they were todgether b ingo they gotta go i knew in my head everything they told me would be bulls— in game lol

4. It seemed like you had more working relationships than anyone else in the game. Is that part of your personality? Would it seem weird if you DIDN’T interact with everyone?

Yeah I am a friendly fun soical queen and am known for it but when i have what i call a true alliance I am loyal to end til i find someone who is deceptive with my trust and loylaty lol which happened lol..

5. Who do you think you didn’t have much of a working relationship with during the game? On Spau alone you were already talking to Kodi, Brenda, Branden, Candy, and Albee by the looks of it. That’s the majority of their tribe.

Dang I can’t remember who I didn’t talk to lol I was always willing though and someimes people need to reachout to me and me not them lol

6. You and Serg did not know how to obtain the final idol of the game. You guys were close to solving it on numerous occasions but couldn’t seem to line up the puzzle answer correctly. Do you think if there was less pressure that one of you would have solved it? Why couldn’t you solve it?

I couldn’t solve it due to one missing link or one letter outta place who knows lol it puzzled all of us but J E R E M E Y lol

7. Daln eliminated Alex at the first Tribal Council over Danial. I am guessing it was as Moray said that Alex was making way too many alliances? Otherwise Danial would have been out first round?

Alex left me behind so fast I couldn’t breathe and exhale. he ran to Moray or vice versa so fast there was fame mist lol So for me Alex and Moray both had to go fast..No-way to treat your seet captain lol Don’t sa hey Glo us to end which Alex sent me and then said have always wanted to work with you Glo then BYEEEEEEEEEEEE..when you do that to me I say BYEE to you lol

8. You supposedly made an all-female alliance with Kayde. Yet you kick her out round three. You may recall that Spau gave her individual immunity from the first Tribal Council. If she hadn’t received immunity from the opposing tribe, would you have spared Kayde and instead eliminated Danial?

Kayde is great gal and only reason that alliance did not work was she was not on enough to communicate with for a girl alliance what order who would have gone what is foggy but I would ahve followed majority that soon in game unless I really knew reason why I should not lol

9. Do you think everybody else was aware of the numerous relationships you were building throughout the course of the game? Did you think that strategy put a bigger target on your back?

Nah most people come to me in game and orgs and start communication because of my loyalty to the right bunch lol Nope I don’t think it put target on my back becasue when i talk to that many folks in orgs I don’t pump for info soon in game just feel them out and my comfort zone. I look for loyalty alliances not bulls— alliances

10. It seemed like you were primarily responsible for the Gloria-Michelle-Serg-Jeremy Final Four alliance to be made. Why did this alliance make sense for you?

Nope Michelle put that alliance together and I trust her judgement usually 100% cause she is social and friendly like me..together we were a duo to hell lol She knows real me and knows that people love me and I love to have fun in games and entertain and nothing more but that I am a PLAYER. but credit for this alliance goes to Michelle not me..There were other alliances she was in and said that won’t work without Glo with her in her head so she tredged forward and out this together ewsith us 4 not me.

11. How come Tyler wasn’t considered to be a fourth in your alliance?

I always wanted Tyler in 5 man alliance but he was all over the map with things he told me and I find out later he was after me from start and it broke my dam heart cause I did everything I could to keep him in game. I like Tyler alot in orgs to be honest he is refreshing fun personality..He knows how to read people and would make right moves in good alliance with me given the right org time lol xoxoxoto Tyler lol

12. During these four rounds Danial gave you every clue. How come Danial liked you more than everybody else in the game?

Honestly I think I just know how Danial operates in games and just don’t shoot bulls— to Danial. I think Danial can be a friendly person but he dones not like to be out of the loop in orgs and he will tell all that right from start or he will take you down lol Danial can be fun but he can be deadly the choice is based player per player with him lol

13. You chose to share the clues with your three alliance members. Jeremy solved them on his own and he claimed the idol. Do you regret sharing those clues with him looking back? Or did you feel sharing the clues is part of the reason why the four of you made it so deep in the game together?

I regret sharing it with all 4 alliance partners and will never do it again I will only share with one person I trust most in game never my whole alliance. You learn each orgs of do’s and do nots lol and my loyalty and faith in thsee 4 slapped me in face and had Jeremy beed forthright and honest that idol was found I would never have probably wanted him gone lolor SO SOON when i found out lol BUT I do like JEREMY lol I felt used by some alliance partners to be honest..but not by Michelle

14. Were you surprised how long Jeremy kept his secret from everybody in the alliance? How come nobody could put that information together until after the merge?

after he performed well in a challenge I knew he had IDOL and confronted him but what pissed me is people not wanting him out of game form that lie sooner or maybe I would be in finals who knows lol i wanted final 2 with Michelle lol I learned alot from this org let me tell you for future alliances lol

15. Danial is voted out of Spau in round four. Nobody in your alliance was responsible for him being voted out, but yet he exposes your Final Four alliance. How much damage control did you need to do in order to cover that up?

to be honest we didn’t really try to cover it up. We just put it all as something Danial did and moved on thru the hysteria of it all.

16. Round five is when the game shook up. Candy mutinies to your tribe. If Candy stuck with Daln to the merge, would she have replaced anybody in your alliance? Or would she have been booted if no other Daln members were on the tribe?

Candy scared people so bad that nobody trusted her and I am not sure anybody would really have  kept her over ther Daln memebers! She is a strong forecefull player..Candy is not afraid to fight and try to survive and does it well lol You go Candy you scared many on Daln including me lol

17. After you guys win immunity in the fifth round, Branden quits. I know Branden said he helped you win your captain position on Opening Day. Would you have added Branden to your Final Four alliance if he had remained in the game or made it to the merge? Or were you hoping to simply put him on the jury as a vote for you to win at the end?

I don’t have any idea if I would have wanted to switch things up with Branden further in game but really wish he had not quit and would have loved to see him longer in game to see what things may have changed up in the game. I am a player that will change up things in a game given the chance if it benefits me to do so lol

18. In round six you were sitting out. Secret rewards are being posted in the main page. And you publicly accept those rewards at the cost of your tribe in the challenge. Again, you had to do damage control. How did you justify to your tribemates as to why you took those rewards? How were you able to avoid losing their trust?

I never tried to cover up to much of what I ever did in the game..I never hid anything from my alliance, and I just told my allaicne how it was and that made them trust me I believe overall.

19. In round seven Daln decides to not merge yet. What was your reasoning for delaying the merge despite your tribe having the numbers advantage? Your tribe nearly doomed yourselves because of that decision.

Who knows why we didn’t merge..I guess we felt we were strong in numbers or something. SHOULDA COULDA didn’t ya know that saying lol

20. Right after you decide not to merge, you and Tyler compete against Brenda and Jason in the Wordsmith challenge. How come you and Tyler had such a tough time in the challenge?

Because they were just dam better at that game than me or TYLER that is my dam answer and that game really ticked me off and you know why lol

21. Do you think having two other people play in the challenge instead would have beaten Brenda and Jason?

YES ANY TWO OTHER PEOPLE FROM OUR TRIBE WOULD PROBABLY HAVE WON THAT CHALLENGE SO CAN WE GET OFF THAT S—TY CHALLENGE IT TICKED MY ASS OFF SO BAD.

22. All this time you have the rogue vote idol in your pocket. Did anyone help you with making sure you were able to cast a rogue vote for Tyler both Tribal Councils? I am guessing Tyler was in on the plan?

NOPE i DID THE ROGUE VOTE ON MY OWN AND VOTED FOR WHOM I WANTED EACH VOTE.Tyler was most definitely not in on the rogue vote plan ever lol

23. Christian joins your tribe after losing to Naomi intentionally on MGI. Did you suspect that Christian threw the duel in order to join Daln?

Yeah I think he did to get to our tribe thinking he might be able to bond and amke alliances,

24. Did you consider Christian to be in possession of the Spau rogue vote idol? If not, did you ever try to ask Spau members about who claimed their hidden immunity idol?

I thought that Christian might have the idol to be honest but never worried to much about it one way or the other lol

25. It seemed like voting Christian was a last minute decision for most people. Were you originally intending to vote for Candy? Or was the target always Christian in your mind?

Nope I was gonna vote Christian but changed it up pretty much last minute and it screwed me lol

26. Christian plays the idol. Michelle voted Candy. Jeremy self-voted. Two of your three key alliance members had avoided voting for Christian. How come voting all over the place like that didn’t impact your alliance in the long run?

That is decent question and I have no answer, we just always worked thru the consequences of all the actions per the behaviors of of our tribre lol

27. The Tribal Council is you, Moray, Serg, and Tyler. You voted Tyler instead of Moray. How come?

Cause i thought it was safe move to save myself in game and my strategy worked lol It was a big gamble that worked..

28. You changed your mind about twenty million times in regards to playing the idol. You ended up playing it. Regrets? Think it would have been wise to hang onto it or would the target on your back get bigger?

I truly didnlt trust anyone of the four that vote so I played it and yes I wished I ahd kept it for myself further in the game lol

29. The next round Naomi plays her Mutiny Trigger. Did anyone on Daln ever talk about Naomi’s Mutiny Trigger? Because none of you spoke about it in your confessionals.

Yeah it was mentioned a time or two but none of us dwelled on it cause it was gonna happen when it happened is way I looked at it..It caused some damage lol

30. Suddenly it’s 4 vs. 4 and 1 vs. 1 once Candy and Christian mutiny back to Spau. Did Tyler do the MGI duel on his own or were you guys doing the best you could to help him out and guarantee that Naomi/a Spau member goes home?

Hey ask Jeremy that question lol but you may be very right on your assumptions lol

31. If Tyler loses the duel, and you guys lose the immunity challenge, who goes home between you-Tyler-Jeremy-Michelle-Serg?

I think Tyler but who knows for sure lolma smart move whould have been to let Jeremy go lol

32. Spau loses the challenge because of Jason, and Naomi loses the duel. Spau ends up voting out Christian partially because of his connections to Daln. Is that true? Would Christian have been relatively safe post-merge with you guys?

Probably not if we lost challnges lol

33. Once it’s down to 9, everybody decides to merge this time. Was there any consideration to not merging yet again?

Nope I think everybody was getting prepared for merging.

34. How sweet was it to win the first individual immunity challenge by default against Candy and Brenda?

I loved it and I knew that the more they did the bigger chance of them making errors lol

35. Candy-Naomi-Brenda-Jason go all in a row. You were the main advocate behind booting Jeremy ahead of Brenda and Jason. If Jeremy hadn’t won immunity those two rounds, do you think the blindside would have been successful?

Probably not cause I am sure knowing things as i do now thta Serg would have tipped off Jeremy and everything would have backfired on me anyways to be booted some kind of way lol

36. What tipped you off that Jeremy had the idol?

When he performed well in one of the challenges deciphering a challenge I knew for sure he had deceived me and had the idol from clues I gave to all my alliance and it never set well with me ever..I wanted him gone soon as I knew after confronting him about it and he told me yes he had it..Taught me a lesson never to share clues again ever lol

37. It’s down to five. Just Daln members. You. Tyler. Jeremy who had an idol. Michelle. And Serg who is wearing immunity. You vote for Tyler because he isn’t part of your four. Did it ever enter your mind that Jeremy would give his idol to Tyler? Did you know anything about the relationship between Tyler and Jeremy?

Nope I never thought that Jeremy and Tyler were tight and it never entered my mind that Jeremy would give Tyler the idol..Great move to be honest in the game.

38. Were you aware that Serg masterminded this whole plan when you were voted out? He told Jeremy to give the idol to Tyler, Jeremy and Tyler would be safe, and then Serg would have the lone vote to send you packing.

Nope did not know it til later and it broke my heart and I think Michelle’s that we trusted Serg to the end final 3..Taught me a lesson and now I have new data in my data box on people I select for alliances lol

39. How would the game have ended if Serg voted off Michelle instead of you at that Tribal Council?

It would not have mattered cause I would have performed poorly in challenges anyways only difference is it would have Been Serg and Jeremy I think lol

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

enjoyed your game it was great fun I learned much thanks for having me and soon I will be retiring from org games I am sure being in love and so busy all the time. God bless all players in this game it was learning experience and great fun.

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for playing this game!

MY PROJECTED BOOT LIST


04: TYLER
03: JEREMY
02: SERG
01: MICHELLE

Next Time on SCWL 5:

– It’s the most action-packed finale in SCWL history. We have our Final Four, and for once, everybody has a legitimate chance to win this game!

JEREMY – The Strategist

He voluntarily took a 4th place spot in the alliance, but used every ounce of mental power to seize control of an idol that led to one of the biggest power moves of the season. He has Tyler with him in his pocket, and is the strongest challenge demon in the game. With a familiar challenge that he dominated on the horizon, can Jeremy the Newbie put together two more challenge wins and guarantee himself victory?

MICHELLE – The Loyal Ally

Michelle has been under the radar the entire game, but that hasn’t gone unnoticed by the power rankings. She created the 4-person alliance and positioned herself as the safest person within that alliance as her Final Two partner Gloria led the pact.

But with Gloria gone, will Michelle emerge as the biggest social threat in this game after Sergiu and Jeremy backstabbed Gloria? Or can she resume flying under the radar and use her straightforward gameplay to knock out an aggressive player?

SERGIU – The Smooth Operator

Sergiu made relationships with everyone in this game, and now has a ticket to the Final Two with everyone in the Final Four. At the merge he kept Spau at bay by communicating with them as he sent each and every single one of them to the rail. He is the only person to know exactly what is going on each round of play and always has a plan to ensure things go his way.

Can he keep this up to day 39 and impress the jury or will people catch on to his incredible gameplay and knock him out?

TYLER – The Underdog

The only one to never be part of Daln’s four-person alliance, Tyler has been kept in the dark throughout the game. He was lucky enough that his tribe won immunity several times to make the merge, and take advantage of four rounds of safety. Last round he packed his bags only to discover an idol was thrown in there from Jeremy to keep him safe.

However, that was a tool used to bump Gloria rather than keep Tyler. With Jeremy preparing to eliminate him, Tyler MUST win immunity both rounds to have a chance to win this game. Can he begin to pull himself together in challenges or will the underdog meet his inevitable doom?

– With all idols gone, the only way to guarantee your safety is through immunity. However, the brand new post-merge twist leads everyone to re-think the value of Final Four immunity versus Final Three immunity.

– And Final Tribal Council will be responsible for the closest jury vote in SCWL history. The ending will leave you on the edge of your seat!

5.14 SCWL 5 Season Finale: “Forfeits, Blindsides. . .And a Winner”

ROUND FOURTEEN

Date: July 25 – October 2nd 2013
Immunity Challenge XIV: Quoridor Tournament
Twist: 15-minute advantage in Final Immunity Challenge if you forfeit or 25-minute advantage if you forfeit in the finals.
Winner: Tyler. Jeremy and Sergiu forfeited first round. Michelle dropped out in second round.

Immunity Challenge XV: Oath of Silence.

Voted Out: Tyler
Final Tribal Council: Sergiu versus Michelle.
Vote Count: 5-4.
Winner: ???????

TYLER
The underdog. Needs a win. Lowest odds of making it to the Final Two. Tough to read how he will we do in front of a jury despite everyone rooting for the underdog.

MICHELLE

My pick to win. Only one past vote just like Sergiu, but her vote was received by default. So does it really count because nobody voted against her? She will probably be taken to Final Two and will likely win due to sheer likeability, and her game being underestimated by others.

SERGIU

Prime pick to make it to Final Two. However, will he have backstabbed too many people along the way? Were some of Sergiu’s deceptions unnecessary? Everyone is banking on his vote for the next two rounds. He is guaranteed to send two people to the jury who may be less than happy with him.

JEREMY

He is a beast at challenges. Jeremy ditched his idol last round, and is in a terrible position in terms of past votes. However, I -know- he can win this round’s immunity challenge. The outcome of this season will come down to how well he can do in the final immunity challenge.

QUORIDOR TOURNAMENT

Quoridor is easily one of my favourite challenges I have seen on a competitive reality TV show. As I covered before, it was used in Big Brother 4. This season I used it in pre-merge and made tribes work in partners to defeat an opposing tribe’s partnership. Also, each partner had to move once per turn in order to make everyone familiar with the challenge. This was all intentionally set up for them to be prepared once it reappears here in the Final Four. I never took the effort to do that with other challenges because of precisely this reason.

I can’t emphasize how much faith I had in Jeremy winning this challenge, and sending Tyler or Michelle to the rail. Tyler is gone if it’s a 2-2 tie. Tyler struggled with this challenge pre-merge and was the only partnership that lost.

THE NEW TWIST FOR THE SEASON

Each season I do one brand new post-merge twist that I have not seen in the ORG community. This season I chose to have the latest twist ever in SCWL history–a twist on day 37.

The twist: There is a semifinal bracket and a final bracket for this challenge.

TYLER VS. JEREMY
MICHELLE VS. SERGIU

If you forfeit your matchup, you will receive a 15 minute time credit in the Final Immunity Challenge. If you think are so safe that you can survive a 1-in-3 shot of being eliminated, then this 15 minute time credit will be worth your while. But seriously, who would fall for that?

I predicted that NOBODY would fall for it. Nobody would even blink.

The offer gets more tempting in the final round where forfeiting the challenge means you receive a 25 minute time credit. That means winning immunity could mean entering the final challenge at a severe disadvantage. Therefore, the two players in the finals could strike a Final Two deal of their own–one person wins immunity and vows to keep their opponent, and the opponent agrees to take the winner to the Final Two after the final immunity challenge.

But again, I thought that was still really unlikely.

MOST SHOCKING RESULTS EVER

And then it hits you. Holy crap. There wasn’t even a semifinal matchup because both Jeremy and Sergiu earn the 15 minute time credit. Suddenly it’s Michelle versus Tyler for immunity, and we will have our fifth individual immunity winner since the merge.

I figured Jeremy and Sergiu would coach Michelle to beat Tyler then use her final immunity challenge disadvantage to wipe her out at Final Two. That seemed to be the ideal play for both of them, and both will enter the Final Two having played a similar game–be deceitful, not the most talkative, but not be on unfriendly terms with anyone in the game.

But even that didn’t freakin’ happen. Seeing Michelle message me that everybody is being a snake, but agrees to forfeit the challenge just blew my mind.

That’s right. Michelle, Sergiu, and Jeremy all threw the challenge voluntarily. One of them MUST be voted out. Therefore, somebody is in for the biggest blindside in SCWL history.

And on top of that Tyler wins Final Four immunity by default. This reminded me of SCWL 3’s Final Four immunity challenge where Eric was ready to submit his answer, and the other three contestants had all failed. At the end Eric had deleted his Facebook account and did not reappear until the final immunity challenge was taking place. . .then deleted his account again and hadn’t been since.

But this situation was much more interesting, compelling, and amazing to watch play out because it didn’t feel like somebody laid down their torch or given a free pass to the end. These four players were executing what they thought was their best strategy to win this game.

HOW IN THE WORLD DID TYLER MAKE IT TO FINAL THREE?

Two rounds ago if you told me that Tyler was one challenge away from winning SCWL 5. . .I would have asked who quit. Tyler has exceeded my expectations. He kept to the golden rule of Survivor–do whatever advances you ahead in the game. Not others.

JEREMY OVERCONFIDENT

Jeremy didn’t even send me a confessional while this was all going down. Michelle was very worried. So was Sergiu. I was wondering what exactly Jeremy had up his sleeve considering two votes against him is all that is needed to send him out of the game in a major upset.

THE NEAR LETHAL SELF-VOTE

And he nearly self-voted on top of that. As I was tallying the votes I informed him it was a self-vote, but got a message back seconds later before the tally was officially done. His vote was against Sergiu. He claimed to have been “super honest” with Michelle to earn her trust, and had Tyler in his corner to take out Sergiu. I am not sure if that was a wise move for him becuase I think Jeremy could lose to both players more easily than Sergiu, but regardless, this is his best chance of advancing to the next round.

JEREMY ULTRA BLINDSIDED

And Jeremy is gone. He gives away an idol last round and forfeits a challenge that already had his name written on it months ago. It was strange to see Jeremy pull all of these brilliant moves but follow it up with two moves late in the game that were questionable. Heck, Tyler even voted against Jeremy and his vote didn’t even matter because a deadlock means Jeremy is gone anyway. Knowing Jeremy, he could probably blow people away with his Final Tribal Council performance. His victory would have been very impressive. But instead he will probably be remembered as the guy who gave up every safety net in order to make the biggest move possible. He could have traded in his idol for a 100-minute advantage at the Final Immunity Challenge. Jeremy let the game slip through his fingers.

TYLER IS ONE WIN AWAY FROM THE BIGGEST UPSET IN SCWL HISTORY

Which gives us this storyline–Tyler just needs to win one challenge. A live endurance challenge. Live endurance challenges are unpredictable, and anyone can win. There is no room for confusion in such a challenge. If Tyler wants it he can have immunity and win this game.

I THINK TYLER COULD DO IT

I really do. I don’t think Michelle will do well with a challenge like this. She has kids, isn’t familiar with live challenges like this, and may not have the fastest computer for a challenge like this. I truly thought Tyler would have the advantage over Sergiu too. Tyler winning this season would go down as the biggest upset since the prequel.

IF MICHELLE OR SERG WIN IMMUNITY. . .

Michelle probably wins, and we sadly see Tyler out of the game in third place.

TYLER DROPS IN RECORD TIME

But then this happened. Tyler was responding to each Roll Call in less than two seconds. He could have gone for hours. However he typed too quickly and misspelled ‘here’. Nobody has been eliminated earlier than the ten minute mark and that was over four years ago in the prequel. I never thought that record would be broken if only because people don’t get bored until roughly fifteen minutes.

Lasting seven minutes was a major bummer. I felt bad for Tyler.

SERGIU’S CHOICE

So Sergiu wins immunity over Michelle as I predicted after Tyler’s premature fall. Sergiu once again is responsible for someone moving forward and also someone being eliminated. Another 3-person Tribal Council where he is wearing immunity.

Sergiu must be one of the most active but yet quietest people to have a complete grip on power from day one. It reminded me of “Jonas” in SCWL 3, but here Sergiu was trying much harder and indeed has a relationship with everyone. I never sensed overconfidence from Sergiu. But I did sense him knowing that he has been a power player every freakin’ round, but be a legitimate contender in the Final Two. Serg doesn’t blow up. Ever. He is a cool cat.

So who does he choose? Tyler the Underdog who has felt close to Sergiu since day one? People will love Tyler’s underdog story, but Tyler may not have much more to offer than that. Or Michelle? The really likeable under the radar player. She has never won immunity, never received a vote against her, and has made friends along the way without being super conniving.

On paper Michelle seemed more likely to beat Sergiu, but Tyler may not be much better of an option. My assessment is that, as experiencing this myself personally in the past, it is very very very difficult to beat somebody in the Final Two that people genuinely like and feel is real. That is how I lost my first ever Final Two decision ever. It was the first time I was in a mastermind role but could not compete with someone who could sit there and say “You guys like me, right?”

WHY IS SERGIU TAKING MICHELLE TO THE FINAL TWO?

I think Sergiu wanted to be loyal to an agreement on day one and look as much of a good person as Michelle, but also because he probably thought he could make a compelling case regarding his strategy for the season.

TYLER IS DEVASTATED

This was a tough part of the season to watch play out. Tyler thought Sergiu had his back since day one. It is why he agreed to eliminate Jeremy. He thought it would be a battle to defeat Michelle. But instead his closest ally reveals on day 38 that it was all an illusion. Tyler is stunned and sent off ot the jury thinking how close he was to victory.

WHY FALLEN COMRADES FOR FINAL TWO?

I’ll briefly go over this–I find the day 39 breakfast to be an annoying tradition. Also, I hate that the person who goes on day 38 doesn’t get their own memorial. I believe the Rite of Passage should be done on the path to Final Tribal Council as the two players have gone as far as they could possibly go in the season. There are no more people to vote out. It’s just remembering those who have fallen before you have the final battle of the game–the battle to earn the jury votes of your peers who you eliminated along the way.

FTC BRUTALIZES THE PLAYERS

The jury did an excellent job this season. No one held back, and no questions were snoozers. I must say that Sergiu needs to look up on the release dates of pop songs. He really screwed up on that music question.

CANDY COMES OUT OF NOWHERE TO SCOLD SERGIU

This was the most surprising thing to see in Final Tribal Council. Jeremy’s hard fought campaign to have everyone vote for Sergiu is a close second, but Candy takes the cake. I thought she would have harsh words for Michelle. But to see her take really brutal shots at Sergiu for his duplicity was shocking. From what I gather Sergiu was as shocked as I was at the time. Nobody expected it. What Sergiu assumed would be a vote for him has now gone into Michelle’s camp. I could sense Sergiu’s increasing frustration that not only may Michelle have won, but it may have been in a dominant fashion.

However, he will be relieved to know that this vote comes down to the ninth and final vote. It has always been 7-2 or 8-1 in SCWL. So for us to finally have a 5-4 vote couldn’t be more exciting.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON SEASON AND WHO I THOUGHT WAS WINNING HEADING INTO FTC

This season was spectacular. Only two rounds of the season were weak which is probably a record for the series. On the other hand we have probably ten rounds that are all in contention for best rounds ever. Golden moments after golden moments occurred during the season. Awesome storylines. The two tribes were competitive and had such a back-and-forth battle that we needed two extra pre-merge rounds to determine who would come out on top.

Mutiny Triggers. MGI. Mutinies. Idols. Players vote to delay merge? An idol activated pre-merge? This season was all over the place. Everbody proved to be a significant character. The most UTR character was Chance, and even he had his moment of being known for losing the fifth immunity challenge and threatening to quit in hopes of getting Albee eliminated.

Much like SCWL 2, I love it when newbies and sophomores absolutely dominate. Seeing the veterans take yet another whooping in SCWL was satisfying to see. Our most inactive player, Danial, ended up being one of the biggest stories of the season despite lasting only four rounds too. Kayde is going to go down as the only player who will be forgotten once everything is said and done. She won immunity from the first TC then wasn’t seen since.

We also had yet another very memorable first boot–Alex. What is it with this series having very active but memorable first boots? Umut, Jim, and Arun too. There could be a season made up of extremely active boots that went home in the first six rounds. Trust me, I’ve looked at the numbers. There’s a ton of them.

All in all, I couldn’t be happier with this season. An extra semester of university, wisdom teeth extraction, two weeks of delays because applicants kept dropping out, and absolutely zero idea what to expect with MGI? This season shattered all expectations.

In short, this game was spectacular.

JEREMY,

ME: -ROUND 14 SELF-VOTE RECORDED-

JEREMY: Wait what!

ME: Oh, who are you voting?

Vote: Sergiu Reason: This is painful because we have worked together so well in this game and I wouldn’t be in this position without you. I am the Stephen to your JT and unfortunately you did not go on an immunity run. Sorry bud.
That was in my chat window.
No idea how Facebook fcked up

ME: Oh, sorry. I never received that message.

Yeah, not sure what happened there.

ME: The last message from you in this thread was a vote for Glo. -ROUND 14 VOTE FOR SERG RECORDED-

Thanks.

ME: That’s why I tell people who they voted for because of that exact scenario right there.

Good work

MICHELLE,

omg you scared the living daylights out of me

Hi Logan, already thinking ahead here. If there is a tie at tc, past votes come into play yes? Just verifying that past votes such as yesterdays against Tyler arent counted.

Another question…I went to look at the Daln group so that I could look back to see if I received one or two votes before the merge, but the group isn’t in my groups. Have you done something with it? If you have, can you tell me how many previous votes I have besides todays? I am such a pest

This is off the record….but these three guys are so full of info that they are just backstabbing each other! Oh boy…which snake to go with????

Tyler is actually quiet… The other 2…. Well lets say I don’t know who to believe!

Oh boy there will be a juicy juicy juicy confessional thus tribal

Hi Logan…just confirming your rules…..IF there is a tie in voting (no idol this time) what happens?

I vote for Jeremy 😦

SERGIU,

I am droping out…

Vote: Jeremy
Reason: Backstabbing is always a hard choice to make, but when u are doing it to some1 who wants to backstab u, it somehow gets a bit easier. Nothing personal m8, i have enjoyed playing with u and hope this works out.

TYLER,

Voting confessional: Oh jesus, I KNOW I’m going to be taking a lot of heat for this one. This might possibly loose me the game. In all honesty the only logic of casting this vote is to give myself a clean slate with the other two people going into final three and to hope that I make it into final two. Causing a tie this round would definitely make things more messy than I want them to be. This is Survivor, and you’ve gotta go with your instincts and look out for no one but yourself. With that in mind…My vote is for Jeremy.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #14

(JEREMY)-(MICHELLE)-(SERGIU)-(*TYLER*)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)-(MORAY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(CANDY)-(NAOMI)-(BRENDA)-(JASON)-(GLORIA)

You must answer your questions and cast your vote by 300am eastern Saturday.

JEREMY,

1. Weird situation we have here. All three of you unanimously agreed to give up immunity to Tyler. What led to everyone putting themselves at risk so he could be safe?

I think the temptation of an advantage in the final challenge was simply too much. Weirdly I think we all feel safe this tribal which obviously means one of us is going to be surprised. I am quite afraid that I will channelling GOB from Arrested Development and be saying “I’ve made a huge mistake.”

2. Do you think everyone else will view it as a blunder for the person who gets eliminated?

It will be looked at as a blunder. But everyone is playing really hard and trying to position themselves best for the next round and to win this game you need to take risks and place your trust in others. That will be detrimental for one of us, but nobody should be disappointed with how they have played the game.

3. Is it inevitable that someone will be blindsided this round?

The results of the challenge definitely show that someone is going to be blindsided. To be honest this is the most nervous I have been in this game and I just the gamble was worth it.

4. Last round you played an idol on Tyler and saved him. Do you feel certain he has your back this round?

I made that move because it was the best for my game and that is how everyone should be playing. I do not feel like Tyler should be blindly loyal to me. I do feel that his best move is to keep me and I will feel grateful if he does.

5. How do you think the jury has responded to everyone making this big gamble for the next round?

I’m not sure what the Jury thinks but whomever is at tribal council and can say that they forfeited immunity at such a late stage of the game should gain respect for demonstrating that they were fully in tune with the game. It takes a lot of courage to give up the chance at immunity and I think the three of us deserve some kudos for being willing to take that risk

MICHELLE,

1. Do you think your motivation for dropping out was the same as everyone else’s?

maybe, maybe not.

2. Why was Tyler the one that was saved as opposed to you, Jeremy, or Serg?

It just played out that way, with the way you placed us in the challenge.

3. Last round Serg had to choose whether to save you or whether to save Glo. You managed to survive the coin flip. Do you assume that Serg will have your back once again?

Honestly, at this stage of the game, every day gives me a new kind of headache, a new kind of worry.

4. The jury must be looming very large at this point. There’s going to be five Daln members and four Spau members. Will tribal lines exist when the jury votes for a Final Two or will each vote truly be individual?

I can’t even think about the jury yet, but I am sure everyone would think individually, as everyone has their own thoughts about who deserves to be sole survivor…..and thoughts aren’t governed by what tribe you played for.

5. Do you think everyone left in this game agrees on how they think each scenario will play out for each Final Two combination? Or are there genuine disagreements in how those situations are perceived?

Well obviously I found out that not all thoughts are the same, since Tyler posted that vid. I am sure players build up each other in their minds and view each other relatively the same as others view them -most of the time. (Omg that sentence is so confusing but I couldn’t write it any other way!)

SERG,

1. You fought hard in the last immunity challenge. Today you gave it up. What made you feel safe enough for this round?

Well honestly the only thing that made me feel safe was my alliance. I hope i am not making a huge mistake by trusting some1 i shouldnt.

2. Last Tribal Council it was exposed who voted for who. No mystery exists. So after voting against Tyler in the previous round, what changed that you and Michelle gave him a free pass this round?

Well i think it was a benefit that tyler got immunity from our desire to get the advantage. It had nothing to do with the last tribal.

3. How do you think the jury is going to respond to your game play?

Honestly i cant really focus on what the jury is thinking because if i do that, i might end up in the jury because i was not carefull in the game.

4. The only time you guys have been united all season is in the fact that Spau members went down one by one. But pre-merge and now since we got down to five, you guys are all over the map. Why is scrambling so tough within this dynamic?

It is not that we are not united, i mean as a tribe we did great, however comeing down to the last few tribal councils, everyone wants to make sure they make the right deicison and that they end up where they want.

5. Do you think voting somebody out at Final Four is tougher than the vote you had to cast last round?

Honestly no. The last vote was the hardest one i had to put in because it was chosing between two very close allies… this time it will be a slight bit easier, but still, voting some1 out isnt easy at this point cuz you have worked with them for a long time and build a relationship.

TYLER,

1. Last round you survived through a highly improbable scenario. This round you survive through an equally improbable scenario. Can you attribute any of this to skill or do you feel you’re on a lucky streak?

What happened last round was definitely a combined effort from Jeremy and I. Jeremy played the idol, but I did everything I could to avert the attention away from Jeremy and onto myself so the votes would go my way in the first place. Idoling Glo out was a very calculated move between Jeremy and myself. As for winning immunity this round, I must say I was kind of shocked but whatever, I’ll take it. And like others have said I think this is an odd round where every person feels safe, which obviously in the game of Survivor is NOT the right assumption for at least one person.

2. For the past couple rounds it seems like you’ve been in the spotlight. So how did you become immune after everything you have been through in the past week?

Haha I was definitely surprised by immunity being handed to me without so much as making a single move. I know you love your Quoridor Logan so I personally apologize for you not getting to see another proper match.

3. Are there any jury goats within this Final Four? Or do you see all four of you potentially win in any given combination?

Goats are honestly something that I think are relatively non-existent in general this season. Pretty much every single person who made the merge could have had some chance to win had they made finals. Looking at this group of three people left besides me I would DEFINITELY not say there’s a goat in the bunch. No way. These are all awesome people and players that I have loved getting to know over the past few months playing the game. It’s true that they all represent different levels of “threat” status, but I think at this point all four of us have a fairly decent shot at winning the game.

4. You are the only one without an advantage in the next immunity challenge. Do you think you are doomed to finish third no matter what?

Haha I really didn’t expect to win ANY challenges this season anyways, and I certainly don’t expect to win the last one without having an advantage. All I can do is hope that the bonds I’ve made will carry me through to the final two and I don’t end up getting Cesternino’d in third place.

5. Unless an unusual 2-1-1 split happens, whoever you vote for is all but guaranteed to be forced into a tie at best. Is everyone making a compelling case for why you should avoid voting each of them?

Yeah, it seems that I really have slipped into the “power position” this round and all eyes are on me to vote their way. I honestly have NO IDEA how the hell this happened after my probably soon to be infamous Glo video, but regardless I do kind of control the table this round. I must say it’s not the funnest position to be in because no matter where I go I’m going to be pissing off at least one person.

Okay, when you vote, plese do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: I forfeited an all-inclusive paid vacation to Hawaii just so I could vote you out. Yeah. I was willing to give up anything to see you gone from this goshforsaken game!

Okay. Tyler is safe. You cannot vote for Tyler. Jeremy, Michelle, and Serg, the three of you are fair game. Between now and 300am eastern, it is time to vote. Kywac tribe, you’re up.

JEREMY: Ahh the classic blindside Well played guys. I look forward to hearing how this happened. Good luck going forward.

ME: Note to future players: Do not give your hidden immunity idol away when it is down to five, followed by forfeiting the Final Four immunity challenge. That will go down as the biggest 1-2 blunder in SCWL history. The surprises at Daln don’t stop.

Congratulations for making it to the Final Three. An Aussie, A Romanian, and an American enter a Final Three sounds like the beginning to bad joke.

Our Final Immunity Challenge will be live.

Please post your availability starting with 800pm eastern Sunday through to 800pm eastern Friday. If none of your times overlap, we will have to do this challenge individually.

Be prepared to do this challenge on Skype or AOL Instant Messenger. So register a free account with each of those places if you don’t already have one.

JEREMY EXIT INTERVIEW

1. You were an ORG newbie upon signing up for this ORG?

Yes I was a complete newbie to ORGs. I saw you advertising the game on S— E—’s Survivor page and thought it would be fun.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I edited out the person’s name because it is a page where international viewers can watch the behind-the-scenes videos that are blocked outside of the United States. Posting its full name on a public page may be a bad idea.

2. I don’t know why, but I had a feeling you were going to make big moves upon entering this ORG. Was that your strategy at the beginning of the game? Or is it a role you happened to fulfill?

Coming into the game I believed I had a very good shot at winning. Mostly because I that I am very smart and have the ability to manipulate people. I’ve always thought I’d do great on real Survivor and the forums where I discuss the show are very very strategy orientated so I’ve talked about a myriad of Survivor hypotheticals before.

3. Who approached you to be a part of the you-Gloria-Michelle-Serg alliance?

At the beginning I wasn’t sure what to expect so I chose to play up my lack of experience and hope that someone would approach me for an alliance due to my eagerness and apparent naivety.

4. I know it was a tight four. Was there any discussion pre-merge as to who would be 4th-3rd-2nd-1st within the alliance? Like a Final Two or Final Three within the alliance?

Sergiu was the one that picked me for opening day so I had some easy dialogue with him and Michelle was really friendly and was a fellow aussie so getting in good with her seemed like the natural progression. Due to differing schedules it was a few days before I started talking to Glo and by that time the foundations had already been laid for the four person alliance.

For me loyalty is a tool of manipulation and if there was ever a time when sticking with the 4 would not be beneficial, I would have made the “shady” move instead. I fully believed that Glo and Michelle were loyal and so jumping ship early was not going through my mind.

5. It’s been established that when you guys lost the first immunity challenge that Danial was going to be out until Alex made too many deals. Who do you think was the biggest contributor to sending Alex home?

I pretty much always knew that I wasn’t at the top of the alliance. I even told Michelle early on when she had been forced into the alliance with Alex and the others that if you aren’t the one that created the alliance then you probably are expendable. In the early game I played UTR and always had the mantra of “Daln 4 to the end” and worked on making myself a really good ally to Sergiu. It helped that Sergiu and I (mostly Serg) created the fake alliance with Moray and Tyler. That way if the 6 of us got to the end together we were always going to be the ones in control.

6. You guys win the second immunity challenge. If you guys had lost and Kodi joined the tribe, would you guys have kept Kodi or would Kayde be ditched no matter what?

I think the 4 of us had always been keen on keeping Danial at this point. We knew he was crazy but at the time we didn’t know how crazy. So in my eyes at least he was a number and with him we had the majority which was the most important thing. Thankfully Moray and Tyler became sick of Alex’s deals and easily “persuaded” us to change our votes. I liked this because it helped the image of Daln unity and left Kayde on the outside meaning she would be the easy next boot.

7. Tyler ends up blowing the third immunity challenge, yet no one was upset with him. Seeing how he wasn’t part of the four, how come Tyler’s stock didn’t go down further upon that loss?

We still had a buffer of two people (Kayde and Danial) before we would have to get rid of one of the six core Daln members. So instead of blasting him I think it was much better for us to be supportive and strengthen the bond between us. I think this is part of the reason why we were so much better than Spau. We had consciously or unconsciously decided that six was a good number to have and anyone else was expendable. Looking towards the merge I feel like I have a much better shot if we have a united 6 merging at 10 rather than have a few more that feel like they would do better if they flipped.

8. No need to discuss round three’s TC. Kayde goes because she was inactive and untrustworhty while Danial had zero connections outside of Spau.

Also it was entertaining to send Danial back to MGI , Sorry for that lol.

I actually have no idea. I have never talked to Kodi and while he seemed to be good in challenges he also seemed to think he was above it all and simply deserved to be kept because of his reputation. I’d like to think that we would have voted him out at either this tribal or the next as from my perspective our alliance was in command of the tribe and anything that disturbed that was not going to be taken kindly.

9. Now to something I wish to discuss–how did you solve the idol puzzles rounds before others? On top of that, how did you figure out how everyone would vote in a 3-2-2-1 vote split at round three’s TC? Did someone else report to you how everyone would vote?

After receiving the “clue” as part of the opening day reward challenge I approached Moray because he had the clue and didn’t know what it was for. We trusted each other enough to exchange the information (Funnily, I almost led a charge to get him out first because I didn’t want anyone to know). I’m decent with the cryptography stuff so I was able to solve the first and second clues without too much drama. Unfortunately Glo had received clues and had shared them with the Daln 4 which put me in that awkward position of bumbling around and saying that I had no idea what they could mean.
As for knowing the vote split it was easier than it probably appears. Voting strategy was different from traditional Survivor due to MGI. As an alliance we had to make sure that somebody was voted out and at the same time none of us were sent to MGI. This was also our second tribal council so it was the perfect time for Gloria to get her idol. Danial had been obsessed with getting Moray out so we just let him continue that train of thought and between the rest of us we decided to vote out Kayde while letting her think the plan was Danial and Serg gave Danial another vote to cover MGI. I had been privy and active in most of the conversations leading up to this tribal and as it shows I had a very good read on the tribe.

10. Danial threatened to expose the alliance between yourself, Gloria, Michelle, and Sergiu. He held to that threat even though none of you voted him out. What type of damage control was needed to cover up Danial exposing the truth?

We tried so hard to talk him down. But he is Danial. Thankfully he is Danial so when he spilt all that information I’m not sure how many people actually took it seriously. It was a surprise to me to see such small ramifications for what was such a huge reveal.

11. Candy mutinies to Daln. How did you utilize Candy as a new number? Was she going to be saved over Christian or Albee no matter what if your tribe went to TC?

We had just gotten rid of our buffers and were going to have to cannablise within a few rounds. And then Candy comes over. Which is great for me as I expect her to go pre-merge so I mostly let the others talk to her and make her feel comfortable. After the quorridor challenge I felt like there was a strong chance that I could work with Christian as he was surprisingly hard to beat in that challenge and he seemed like a pretty cool guy. So if we had lost and he had come over I think he would have had a very good chance of staying as Candy had only just arrived herself.

12. Branden quits following Candy’s round five challenge victory, and Chance is voted out for his mistake. Do you think Daln became too confident in terms of their numbers advantage?

I think it was hard not to. We had a few people as a buffer and some of us were more than capable of taking on the best that Spau had to offer in challenges. At this point it was working out just how much of an advantage could we get at the merge.

13. Did everyone trust Candy to stick with Daln if she entered the merge with Daln?

I didn’t trust Candy but pretty much all of the others except Michelle felt like she would be 100% with us.

14. Round six. Nobody took the rewards on your tribe except for Gloria who couldn’t accept them because she was sitting out. Did Gloria’s selfish act affect your four-person alliance in the long run?

I was never planning on taking Glo to the end as I knew she was an Org veteran and that her eccentricities are totally endearing. So no, I don’t think it had that much of an impact.

15. Albee goes home. Daln has six original members against Spau’s five. But one of those five is Candy. How come the tribe decided not to merge? Would you have made a different decision if you knew Daln didn’t hold two out of three idols?

Personally, I was worried about Moray and Tyler flipping to Spau. Especially after Danial’s spew about the alliance and the fact that I had become really really lax with the keeping up the fake alliance with them. Thankfully Sergiu had that all under control. Merging at this point would have created a lot of uncertainty as I wasn’t sure if Candy was onto the alliance and had been working them, or how strong were Tyler’s ties to Brenda and Naomi. It was just so much simpler to keep to the idea of the Daln 6 and remain as separate tribes.

16. What was the strategy behind not telling anybody in your alliance about your idol as they continued to struggle?

This was a bit of a struggle for me. But I thought about this decision for a long time and I think I made the best one. I already felt that the alliance was incredibly loyal to each other so I didn’t think I would get a justifiable amount of extra loyalty from being completely honest about the idol. Going forward I felt that there were likely going to be opportunities where I could use the idol without anyone in the alliance knowing as a method of taking them out or creating a new ally from Spau post merge. Also without the knowledge of the idols whereabouts there would have been quite a lot more paranoia and idol-fear after the merge which I may have been able to use to my advantage.
In hindsight I wish I had come clean about the idol earlier than I had to but still maintained ambiguity on whether or not it was fake. A Schrödinger’s idol is just so much more interesting.

17. How did Moray and Tyler fit into your game heading into round seven? You must have been worried about Michelle and Gloria being a solid Final Two, and who knew if Candy or Serg would be their third.

At this point I felt like Serg and I were in control. I think he was interested in taking me to the end and at this point I was feeling the same. We had all the options open to us at this point. I have the idol and we know pretty much everything that is happening in the tribe. The only way Michelle and Glo are the final 2 is if Tyler is the third  and that seemed super unlikely. From my perspective they were playing for an almost impossible scenario.

18. Gloria and Tyler get demolished by Brenda in a Wordsmith challenge. Christian joins your tribe from MGI. What made you decide to not play your idol? Was there discussion about Gloria using hers? Did you think Christian had the one from Spau?

I thought there was probably a 10% chance (Note: only 10 due to the early Spau tribal that took an additional 24hours) that Christian had an idol and was willing to play it. I knew he was strong in challenges so I was surprised that he lost MGI. I broached this with Sergiu and he was adamant that there was no idol and that Candy was loyal to Daln. This sentiment was resounded by Tyler, Moray and Glo and so for the first time in the game my target was not the tribes’ target. I didn’t have the influence over Sergiu that I thought I had and without that influence I didn’t have the power to inflict my will upon the game.
And in the large chance that Christian did not have the idol I felt like I would be voting out someone that could potentially be an ally post-merge. I had 20 hours to make a decision and I assumed I would get the chance to talk to him before the vote but unfortunately things happen. In fact while walking to the party I was contemplating giving my idol to Christian as from my point of view I would be gaining at least one new ally and get rid of either Tyler or Moray without getting any blood on my hands putting myself into possibly the best position within the Daln alliance and no one would have known except Christian and myself and I perhaps more importantly I would be the person dictating the flow of the game.
Also no one discussed Glo using her idol with me. I thought it was a bad move by her and the results of that tribal left me scratching my head.

19. I know you’ve announced this publicly, but just to make it official–you only self-voted during the Christian vote because you weren’t around to cast your vote? If you had voted, would you have voted against Christian?

If I had stuck with Daln, I was voting for Candy mostly due to MGI. If I had gone with the plan outlined above I probably would have voted Christian so that I would have also been at the next tribal and would have made the decision with Glo and Sergiu as to which one to take out.

20. Moray goes once everything goes down. Did Moray’s exit affect your game?

It was fantastic. I now possess the only idol in the game and I have just moved up a rung in the Sergiu, Tyler, Jeremy alliance and I’m not as stressed about the merge because no offense to Tyler but I felt like Moray was much more of a threat to actively change things up.

21. Then we get to the 5 vs. 5 round. If your tribe and Tyler lost the immunity challenge, would Tyler have gone at that time?

I can’t accurately answer this. My instinctual answer is yes, Tyler number 5 in a four person alliance. However in this scenario I would have had a lot more to contemplate with regards to the impending merge.

Luckily I put 100% effort into making sure this didn’t happen and pretty much singlehandedly won this challenge for Daln. Which did have some negative consequences like showing my alliance that if this was such child’s play for me then surely I must have the idol. Also I’m still curious to whether “Michelle’s” tiebreaker or Candy’s was better

22. Furthermore, if you entered the merge in the minority 5-4, how would you have used your idol? I am sure that had to be on your mind before your tribe won the round eight immunity.

If Daln wins the challenge and Tyler loses I would have 100% handed him the idol. So Daln being in the minority at the merge was happening only a very small percent of the time (Daln loses & Tyler loses). However if the situation did arise I would have likely won immunity and I would have tried to make inroads with Spau members. If I am remember rightly in this scenario Christian is still in the game and I would have approached him about working together.

Going back to the previous question I think I would have tried to convince Sergiu to go against the Daln 4 alliance and keep Tyler. I know Tyler had ties to at least Naomi and any potential connection is a potential alliance. If tribal lines stayed strong I would likely have tried to kept my idol until final 7 at which point it would be so threatening that alliance would have fractured and hopefully myself and the other remaining Daln would emerge victorious.

23. Then the merge came. Candy, Naomi, and Brenda all go in a row. How much did you have a hand in deciding who went when during this stretch?

I was tired of watching my fellow Dalnians trying to play with Candy and pretty much put my foot down on the issue. Brenda wins the following immunity and Naomi is an easy decision as behind my back Glo and Michelle are cultivating a relationship with Jason and are pressuring me to use my idol. So the path of least resistance is to vote off Naomi and tell them that I am going to play my idol, which I obviously don’t.

24. Jason initially had his allegiance to Gloria when he jumped ship, but later on was relying on you to save you with his idol. Why do you think Jason shifted loyalties from Gloria to you?

I think he saw that Tyler and I were actually willing to save him. At this point I was a little unclear about just how strong the Glo and Jason relationship so I took a stab in the dark and told Jason that Glo had been telling us all that she was telling Jason to vote out Tyler. So that Jason would think that Glo was telling us everything. I have no idea if this was the truth or not or if it was effective but at the time I felt like Jason was being truthful to me. Unfortunately I decided not to use the idol as with Sergiu leaving it would have been a final 5 of myself, Tyler, Jason, Glo and Michelle and that I would have given Jason way too much power especially now that I would have not had the idol and I was going on vacation so I would be unable to properly compete in the upcoming immunity challenge. However there was still strategic benefits to having two votes land on Glo as this would have been a key component of the plan if I had successfully gotten rid of Sergiu at final five.

25. After Candy went, people caught on that you held the idol. How did you decide who would find about your idol and when? Did it go as you planned? Do you think you played it to the best of your abilities?

After the last pre merge challenge there was no hiding my ability with code breaking and when Glo and Michelle separately confronted me about it I saw no reason to lie. From my perspective I hadn’t outright lied about it, I just hadn’t been completely truthful. I told Sergiu after that and explained my reasons for hiding it. After I didn’t need to use it at the merge or earlier I wasn’t entirely sure what to do with it and just how far I could carry it. So I basically used it to cement my final 2 deal with Sergiu. I had been playing a fairly UTR game up until that point and Sergiu was the one that had allowed me to do that. I was careful when talking with him to not reveal just how strategic my thought processes were and I did this so that I could convince him that the idol was for us. We could just go to the end loyal to the Daln 4 because there was no need to do otherwise. If I won immunity at F4 I would simply use the idol on him.
This was probably one of my best unseen moves of the game. By ensuring that Sergiu had every reason to be loyal to me he had no reason to go along with Glo and try to flush the idol. From his perspective a Daln 4 final four was the best case scenario as I would keep him safe at final 4 and everyone in the final 3 would have taken him to the end.

26. Once it got down to seven, you said you stopped throwing individual challenges and went on a mini two challenge streak. How come you admitted to throwing challenges and said you are a bad social player?

I had already told my Daln mates that I had been throwing them and I had encouraged them to throw as well. I did this because it was to show that I trusted them. As soon as the Sergiu let me know that plans to flush the idol were starting to be thrown around and Glo started acting sketchy I decided it was time to actually win some. Seriously I only started playing them because I didn’t want to give them the opportunity to make a move against me.
The bad social player comment was to downplay myself as a jury threat. I was hoping after seeing my challenge ability more people would start approaching me with final 2 deals. I’m the perfect combination for an ally, I own the challenges yet I’m too lazy to actually create social connections. I literally did not talk to Brenda or Naomi, I barely spoke to Candy and the only time I had talked much with Jason was just before I had lied about using the idol on him. No matter how I got there it was going to be difficult for me to win the jury vote. However in my head the plan I was pursuing had me beating Tyler 5-4 or 6-3.

27. Jason goes at six. Only Tyler tried to help him out. You said you didn’t know if you could trust him. Any regrets about ditching Jason at six?

Sure in hindsight. At the time I was happy with my decision.

28. We get down to five and these next two rounds involve you making huge moves. First, you didn’t win the immunity challenge. Serg wins it. Was that part of the plan?

I wish this had been a smaller challenge. There was no way that I wanted Sergiu to win. Unfortunately I was the only one who would have been able to beat him and I had just started a week of this game only being able to use my phone. If things had gone to plan it would have been 3-2 against Tyler I would have used the idol and Sergiu would have been eliminated.

29. Who ultimately came up with the plan to have the 3-2 vote against Tyler and have him use your idol, thus sending Gloria home?

In the previous round I had revealed everything to Tyler about the Daln 4 alliance and how Sergiu and I had been leading him on. I also told him outright that I did not believe that I could beat anyone one of those players (I honestly did, and still believe that). So that’s when the plan to save Jason came about and then when I backed out of that we both knew that I would use my idol on Tyler this round. In case of Sergiu winning immunity I floated the idea with him and he was very receptive of it as it would keep blood off his hands and the two of us could simply choose who to go with to the final 3 in the next round without having to worry about immunity wins.

30. Why did Gloria go over Michelle?

Glo went a little crazy and was making desperate plays to stay in the game. I think we all felt that we could predict M a little more so she was preferable.

31. Then we get down to Final Four. You, Serg, and Michelle all threw the challenge. Why?

You know what I think a week of snowboarding, partying and generally living large got to me. I felt invincible and that I could mould all of these other people to do just what I wanted. I also didn’t want to be a jerk and hold up the challenge by making one move every 10 hours until I got home from vacation.
I wanted to get Sergiu out. From my perspective I had been playing from his shadow. Letting him make all the decisions while I sat back and influenced him. I thought he was super guy and was shocked to see how he was perceived by some jury members. In my mind he had been the JT of the season.
I also felt that Tyler was 100% with me. After all I had bailed him out in the final pre merge challenge, I had used my idol on him and at final 6 he was perfectly fine with getting rid of Sergiu. From my point of view and with how I thought he had been playing I really didn’t even consider that he would so easily turn on me especially with just how obvious it was that I wanted him in the final 2 with me.
Michelle was a little trickier as I had just betrayed the alliance that had formed on day 2. So I pulled a Rob Cesternino, Dan Gheesling type move and tried to create new trust by revealing all of my deceptions. I pretty much detailed all of my moves, why I had made them and why getting rid of Sergiu was simply the best option. I lied again and said that I wanted to take her to the end as Tyler would get votes from at least Naomi, Brenda, Moray and Candy. I told her that Sergiu had been in on the idol plan and that he had been playing her just as much as me and that we had chosen our alliance with Tyler over her and Glo.
I have a feeling that if Tyler had been on my side then we would have been able to sway Michelle especially because if he was on my side he would have thrown the challenge the same time that Serg and I did or subsequently made a deal with her to forfeit at the next opportunity. Which would have given Michelle immunity and just as importantly Tyler would have had the final challenge advantage. That last part is also important because I would have been able to throw the last challenge as long as both Tyler and myself outlasted Michelle, as taking Michelle to the finals was just unthinkable to me as it should have been to everyone else.

32. Were you worried that 3/4 of you threw the challenge, knowing one of you must go?

I was worried when it was Tyler with the immunity as that was not my plan. However I have to commend them all as the truly got the better of me and I thought I was safe.

33. In addition, you and Tyler had the two greatest number of past votes, which sends you home in a 2-2 deadlock. Tyler is immune. Were you aware that the only way you could stay alive in this scenario is if it was a 3-1 vote against Michelle?

Again I was playing under the impression that Tyler was with me 100% so I was playing for the scenario where it was 3-1 against Sergiu.

34. On a scale of 1-10, how shocked were you that Sergiu betrayed you at four?

I’d say a 1. Obviously once he caught wind that I was betraying him his best move is to take me out and everyone was more than willing to do that
I’d be curious about how shocked he was to learn that I was betraying him.

35. At Final Tribal Council you ran the biggest campaign for Sergiu to win this game despite him shoving the knife in your back. Do you think any of the votes for Michelle to win would be correctly justified in your eyes?

I think all votes are justifiable based on the criteria of the caster. A lot of my opinion was based more on the maths of the game rather than personal feelings. In my eyes Michelle should never have made the final tribal council as she isn’t good enough to win the challenge and she is possibly the most liked player. I think Sergiu’s youth played against him and he didn’t realise that when most people make jury decisions they do so in favour of the person they liked the most. And I couldn’t make my vote based just on one huge mistake of Sergiu’s.

36. Tyler wins this game if he makes it to the F2 regardless if his opponent is Michelle or Sergiu, correct?

I don’t think so. Let’s play out the scenario.
IF it is Tyler-Sergiu I think we come out:
Jeremy – Sergiu
Michelle- Sergiu
Glo – Sergiu
Moray –Tyler
Naomi – Tyler
Brenda – Tyler
Candy – Tyler
So it would have come down to Christian and Jason and I’m not sure which way they would have gone.
Against Michelle, I think Tyler loses.
Jeremy – Michelle
Sergiu – Michelle
Glo – Michelle
Moray –Tyler
Naomi – Tyler
Brenda – Tyler
And again I’m not sure about Candy, Christian and Jason but I believe that Michelle had fairly good relationships with Jason and Christian so that would be my prediction.
Against myself I would have likely needed both Jason and Christian’s votes but the route taken to get myself and Tyler to the end would have been pretty dominant so anyone who didn’t have particularly strong feelings one way or the other should be inclined to vote for me.

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

t crossed my mind on numerous occasions that I should just challenge-beast everything and get to the end that way and use my idol to swap someone’s vote, but I thought that would be pretty boring for me, for you, the other players and the spectators. I had a blast and I’d like to thank you for hosting. Also I am sorry that I didn’t do any confessionals. Newbie error. Hopefully this essay length interview makes up for some of that.
This was definitely good training for when/if they ever make another Australian Survivor.

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for playing this game!

MY PROJECTED BOOT LIST

03: TYLER
02: SERG
01: MICHELLE

ROUND FIFTEEN

MICHELLE,

I can do a confessional Ina few hours. Amber sick ATM

So this is the confessional I did not get to do today. I am going to write the last sentence as if I didn’t know I was safe. So Glo is gone and I was shocked. Sergiu, Gloria and I didn’t know whether to vote for Tyler or Jeremy. Jeremy’s idol troubled us for many tcs, but we were torn between our final 4 pact and our final 3 pact getting to the end. Little did I know that Sergiu was going to betray us and vote out Glo, with Tyler and Jeremy…..you see, Sergiu was feeding information back to Jeremy about what we were going to do and who we were going to vote for. Then he gave Tyler the idol. Either way, Glo or I were doomed because our conversations were going back to Jeremy. So as soon as Glo was gone, Jeremy came to me with plans of voting out Sergiu, and Sergiu came to me with plans of voting out Jeremy. Since they had plotted together for the last tc, how did I know if they were not actually going to blindside me? Sergiu was passionate in his explanation of why he did what he did……and I understood….I mean, he figured out Glo and I were in a final 2 pact. He had to get rid of one of us. So, he was ready to work with me again, but I didn’t trust him at all…..and I didn’t trust Jeremy at all. Then the challenge was released and the option to quit was raised. Jeremy thought Sergiu was working with him and they decided that they would both quit the challenge, leaving Tyler and I to play the final. Jeremy said he could probably get Tyler to quit as well, giving me immunity………how on earth was I going to trust these 2 who had worked against us 4, and then suddenly want to give me immunity?? Who was I to work with? Then I was up first for the challenge and I had to make a decision. Get an advantage in the next challenge…one which I might go into with ppl who already had an advantage, or play for immunity because I didn’t feel safe. I just took a risk and quit. Jeremy was apparently surprised and wondered why I did it. So from that moment Jeremy wanted Sergiu out and Sergiu wanted Jeremy out. Tyler must have liked Sergiu’s reasoning better as he sided with us. I am still scared that I am going to be blindsided…because SOMEONE was going to be blindsided.

SERGIU,

Vote: Tyler
Reason: I am simply going to be loyal to the alliance i made at the begining. I know it wont be easy to win against Michelle but i do think it is better to win against a stronger player than having an easy win. Hope u can understand it ma’ friend

TYLER,

And why not, just for old time’s sake… Confessional (Yeah…sorry I’ve kind of dropped off the face of the earth on these…):
At this point I could either be in a Hatch position or a Cesternino position. If I’m in the Rob C. spot that means that I have to win immunity or I’m going home. If I’m in the Hatch spot like I hope I am then it really doesn’t matter who wins. Michelle thinks Sergiu’s a bigger threat and Sergiu and I have been tight Rich/Rudy style allies all game. I’m definitely not comfortable enough to step off a perch for some f—ing oranges though, so regardless of my position I plan on trying my absolute hardest at this last challenge. Who knows, maybe I can finally crack one out for real…

I’m going to be so pissed at myself if this s— ends up Cesternino’ing me, lol

would it be at all possible to send me a boot list really quick? I want to make a “Fallen Comrades” video
and yeah, I’m assuming right now you can go ahead and pencil me into the Cesternino spot…

TRIBAL COUNCIL #15

(MICHELLE)-(*SERGIU*)-(TYLER)
XXX
(ALEX)-(KODI)-(KAYDE)-(DANIAL)-(branden)-(CHANCE)-(ALBEE)-(MORAY)-(CHRISTIAN)-(CANDY)-(NAOMI)-(BRENDA)-(JASON)-(GLORIA)-(JEREMY)

Everyone must answer their questions. Only Serg will vote. He has 24 hours to do so.

MICHELLE,

1. May as well keep it simple. Why should Serg keep you?

because we have had an alliance since day 2. I believe in keeping your word, unless someone does something against you, or else you find out you are lower on the alliance rung. If I would have won I would have taken Sergiu (sorry Tyler).

2. Why should he boot Tyler?

Because that alliance was formed after ours. Simple

3. What’s been your favourite part of this experience?

Getting together for challenges. I love challenges, even though I may lack in some computer skills for some of them. Simply being in a “wacky” game though has been great.

TYLER,

1. Why should Serg keep you?

He should keep me because I’m going to be WAAY more personally hurt if he betrays me and I plan on poisoning the jury against him if he doesn’t.

2. Why should he boot Michelle?

Michelle’s a mom, a veteran ORGer, she’s got connections with tons of people on the jury, and she doesn’t want this NEARLY as much as I do.

3. What’s the biggest lesson you have learned during this game?

To not trust Romanians

SERG,

1. You are in a position identical to two rounds ago. What’s the dilemma this time around that you didn’t have last time?

Well this time it is defenetly who i want to sit next to in the final. It is eighter my original alliance since the begining, or some1 i think i have a huge shot at winning against. That is the dilema this round, Michelle is very likable and had longer conversations with the jury than myself, but we were a loyal couple during the enitre game. With Tyler, the issue is that i defenetly think i have a better shot at winning against him, but i would betray the one person i had their back during the entire game.

2. You kept Michelle last time that you were in this situation. In fact, you voted for Tyler when he played the idol that round. Is there a sense of loyalty with Michelle or all bets off?

It defenetly has to do with loyality towards Michelle, but what very very few ppl know is that i voted for Tyler on purpose that tribal counsil, knowing he will be saved by Jeremy. I am still loyal to Michelle and big part of me wants to keep her.

3. What makes Tyler look like a better option to keep around this round as opposed to two rounds ago?

Two rounds ago, Tyler recived immunity simply because he was noones target. The fact that i would keep tyler is that i think i would win against him.

Okay Serg, when you vote please do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (LOGAN)
REASON: If this vote doesn’t send you home. . .dare I say the game is fixed?

Michelle cannot vote for Serg. She can only vote for Tyler. Tyler cannot vote for Serg. He can only vote for Michelle. Those two votes cancel out. Therefore, Serg is the only one voting this round.

TYLER: And that I f—ing suck socially and can’t get into a solid alliance and not be on the outside looking in to save my f—ing life, in real life or in Survivor. I’m just a s—ty person like that..

TYLER: I picked Sergiu on NIGHT ONE to be on our tribe, he would have been on MGI if it weren’t for me. I thought the two of us had each other’s backs just based on that. Then we voted out Alex together, more reason why I THOUGHT we were tight. When I went to MGI because I was the last person picked to be on our tribe? Guess what, SERGIU was actually the person picked last to be on our tribe and HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE SENT TO MGI. But did I complain? Oh no, because I had my buddy Sergiu’s back. I was loyal to him the whole game and I went the extra mile and LITERALLY took a bullet for him. This is why he should keep me.

TYLER: We had a four way alliance with Jeremy and Moray since the first round. So buddy, you ARE breaking your word to a start-of-the-game four way alliance no matter what you do here…

TYLER: We both cut Moray before the merge because we knew the other tribe members found him to be untrustworthy and we knew cutting him would further our own status in the tribe.

TYLER: He’s been working between two alliances the whole game and he knows it. If he doesn’t take me he’ll have hell to pay and I’ll make sure to stir up a s—fest for him he wouldn’t DREAM of getting from a nice, warm, motherly person like Michelle.

MICHELLE: Oh Tyler you can’t say that you want it more than me. You have no idea how much I want it. I have never been higher than 4th…… And play nice, why would you want to bring Sergiu down for this. If what you are saying is true, then you have built a relationship with him over time and was that worth nothing? Or were you talking to people “just for the sake of it”. Anyway, I wouldn’t mess with “mothers” , we can turn. Candy would agree here.

TYLER: well maybe I just suck then

TYLER: I would NEVER have a final two alliance on the second day. I’m sorry, I just don’t play the game that fast

TYLER: And now I’m being punished for it

TYLER: I just SUCK SUCK SUCK SUCK SUCK socially. Nobody likes me

TYLER: And I cant play this game. I don’t know how to small talk with people, I sure as hell am not going to run around and make final two deals with people that I just started talking with on Facebook. I’m just an all around L-O-O-S-E-R

TYLER: WORST CHALLENGE TIME EVER, YAY F–ING ME

TYLER: Michelle Pearce-Denovan it’s nothing against you, I’m just extremely frustrated with myself about all of this. This whole experience is going to teach me never to f—ing trust people

TYLER: Sergiu buddy, you did a REALLY good job of making me believe that we had a final two, n00bs to the end alliance since the end of the game. And for the record, I’m NOT going to put up a video trashing you.

TYLER: But needless to say, my FTC statements will be colorful, so be warned.

TYLER: And Michelle Pearce-Denovan I’ve already gone into detail with Sergiu about how this makes me feel. His relationship WAS really important to me. I looked at him as a little brother and was sticking my neck out for and protecting him the whole game.

TYLER: To make a long story short strategically it makes perfect sense, on a personal level I’m kinda crushed…

MICHELLE: Tyler I was crushed in a game I once played. I thought I had a solid alliance and I was voted out… And being a girl I got really sad and cried. I have learnt to take EVERYTHING ppl say in a game of Survivor with a grain of salt. I trusted only one person implicitly in this game…. The first time in all the games I have played. And that person was the same one who did me wrong many games ago. I am playing another game now and I can’t trust anyone.

VOTING

SERG,

Vote: Tyler

Reason: I am simply going to be loyal to the alliance i made at the begining. I know it wont be easy to win against Michelle but i do think it is better to win against a stronger player than having an easy win. Hope u can understand it ma’ friend

TYLER: Okay…venting and self deprecation aside I just wanted to say that since day one you two really were the two people in the whole cast that I thought I’d get a long with the most. Sergiu Zablau you’re a hell of a gamer but you might have stabbed one too many people in the back. Michelle Pearce-Denovan, your sweetheart levels are off the chart but I’m not convinced you’ve played the strategic part of the game that much besides just riding majority alliances. I have massive props and big qualms with the way you both played the game, and my vote can honestly go either way. No, I’m not going to make a big public video insulting Sergiu, I have too much respect for him to do that. And Sergiu, I may be hurt by his but I don’t want you to for a SECOND think I think you’re a bad person in real life. For FTC I’m going to be specifically looking for Sergiu to account for his body count and for Michelle to demonstrate gameplay beyond riding numbers. Good luck to both of you and I really couldn’t have asked for better company in the final three. Sorry again for the public meltdown
-Your crazy neighborhood Hipster-Man…

ME: In a battle for final immunity that could have gone either way, it is quite the feat for both of you to survive.

Congratulations. You have made it to the Final Two. Sixteen people have fallen. Now there is only one more opponent for you Michelle, and you Sergiu, to take down:

Each other.

You only have one more task left in SCWL 5 before embarking on your Final Tribal Council. I hope you enjoy it and take that time to re-charge. You’re gonna need all of the energy you can muster when you take on the most brutal element yet–the jury.

TYLER EXIT INTERVIEW

1. Upon entering this game you had a reputation from Clayton’s series for acting like a big villain that went home early, if I recall correctly. This season I saw zero signs of a villain-like nature. What made you flip the switch?

1. I had a reputation, really? Gee, I’m flattered lol. In all honesty from the get go I knew I couldn’t be that Shannon Elkin type of player who goes in and HAS to have the majority right away this time around. I was definitely a lot more passive this game, some times for the better, oftentimes for the worst when it comes to strategy.

2. You picked Sergiu to be on Daln, and Serg followed it up with picking Jeremy. And you three were the last three picks for the Daln tribe. Why do you think you three were such low picks despite making up three parts of the Final Four?

2. I’m fairly sure the three of us were probably just later picks due to us being newer players in the ORG community.

3. You were never part of the initial 4-person alliance on Daln. I know you explained it before, but just to make it known to everyone, why was that?

. I wasn’t part of the initial alliance of four because I had my own alliance of four between myself Sergiu Moray and Jeremy. I also was told by Clayton to “let people come to me” hence why I didn’t make key connections with people like Michelle early on.

4. Was it clear to you that you and Moray were on the outside of Daln? How come you two couldn’t use Kayde to try and turn around this game?

4. It was definitely clear that something was up and the two of us were on the outside. We didn’t want to go to Kayde because we suspected her of being tightly aligned with Alex who we’d just taken out.

5. It seemed like the only person at Daln who wanted to switch up the four-person alliance was Jeremy. Did you make it a goal to stay close to him throughout the game and to not make any waves in order to make an endgame run?

5. Jeremy was an interesting case. In all honesty I didn’t really have much of a relationship with him until very late in the game. It’s actually kinda surprising to hear he was the one who wanted to shake things up because Moray and I were under the impression he was trying to slide under the radar early in the game.

6. Alex went home because he made too many deals round one. If I recall correctly, you and Moray figured out what he was doing. Regret making Alex a first boot looking back? Or is Alex’s elimination the reason why Daln made such a strong run this season?

6. I wasn’t going to work with someone who was CONSTANTLY blasting paranoia in my direction. It definitely soured the mood of the tribe. I’m sure Alex is a great kid but he came out of the gate acting pretty much exactly like I acted my first time and I knew first hand someone with that kind of mentality will be impossible to control. So no, I don’t regret it a bit. I think if Alex had stayed Daln would have been a very divided tribe through a lot of the pre-merge.

7. In round three you were appointed the leader to direct everyone through a maze. Most people would have struggled in your position. Thankfully, nobody held that huge maze error against you. How come that error was never held against you?

7. I honestly think nobody held it against me for two reasons…one because it was obvious just how hard I had worked and that like a good math problem there were just a couple things I did wrong that led to my failure. And two, I definitely played the sympathy card that round and put all the blame on myself to begin with.

8. Gloria picked up Daln’s idol by rogue voting you twice. I am guessing that Gloria knew she was rogue voting you twice ahead of time? Why were you okay with Gloria taking the idol?

8. I wasn’t really “okay” with Glo having the idol and obviously it led to the downfall of my closest ally, but really my whole strategy in this game was to just pretend like the idols didn’t exist as I feel idols can lead to a lot of over thinking and paranoia that can come back to bite you if you’re not careful.

9. Candy mutinies to your tribe in round five. Did you have any type of relationship with Candy after she mutinied?

9. Other than her attempts to get me to flip on Sergiu which I should have totally taken up on…no Candy and I never talked. In fact I spent a good part of her time on Daln basically making fun of her for putting herself in an unwinnable position with that flip.

10. Who do you think was the closest to mutinying to Spau from the Daln tribe?

10. I really don’t think ANYONE was even remotely close to flipping to Spau during the mutiny. Moray and I were holding on to our all guys alliance and the other four were all in a safely knit final four deal with each other. If I had to pick one person I guess…I dunno…Jeremy just because he seemed eager to flip things up in general.

11. You guys go on a two-round winning streak after the mutiny. Would Moray have gone home if your tribe lost one of those two challenges?

11. I’m fairly confident Candy would have been the first boot had Daln lost a challenge post-mutiny. Her flipping basically painted herself in the South Pacific Cochran position of clearly not being reliable.

12. What was your reason for deciding to not merge yet?

12. Simple: To try and diminish Spau’s numbers even more. I personally thought it was a bit over-thinking when we already had a clear majority but obviously it worked out for us.

13. You and Gloria faced off against Brenda and. . .well, pretty much just Brenda in that challenge. Brenda and Jason both denied exploiting Gloria’s availability in order to win a couple points in the challenge.

13. I’m not seeing a question here…And I distinctly remember that round being pissed at Glo for pressing so hard to get some sort of a penalty for the other tribe. They kicked our asses, fair and simple. Trying to work a loophole around it was just shady…

EDITOR’S NOTE: There was. I could have sworn I typed “do you believe Spau exploited that” but forgot. Muh bad. Tyler is a smart cookie and answered the question anyway.

14. In round seven your tribe loses immunity, and Christian throws the MGI duel to be on Daln. Initially you were going to keep Christian but changed your mind. Who would you have voted against before you flopped to voting out Christian?

14. Eh…I’m not remembering this too well but the boot probably would have gone to either Candy or Moray.

15. But it was a trap! You, Moray, Sergiu, and Gloria went to TC. It was a 2-1-1 vote. Tell me how that vote went down and why you helped eliminate Moray.

15. I knew Moray had been at the bottom of the tribe for a while, and I knew cutting him off would definitely buy me some favor with the rest of my tribemates. If I remember Glo was EXTREMELY pushy about the whole thing and even made me take a screencap of my vote (after which she still uses her idol…okay…?)

16. Did the tribe anticipate Naomi pulling the Mutiny Trigger? Or that Christian and Candy had another trick up their sleeves after Moray went home?

16. We didn’t really anticipate much of anything when it came to the “mutiny trigger”.

17. Candy and Christian mutiny back to Spau. Candy said she was wanting to return back to Spau, but did you and others on Daln think Candy would have stayed loyal if it were not for Michelle voting against Candy?

17. First let me say…holding off on the merge was a BAD idea and here was why. I thought for sure we were friggin screwed after the two flipped back to Spau. And I think it was obvious to everyone in the game that Candy’s only loyalty was to herself.

ROUND SIXTEEN

MICHELLE,

Hey there. Can I get a heads up as to when the results will be read then I can see if I can be online then? Thanks

ME: 🙂

What was that? A smile? Sorry, but there is no time associated with a smile! Lol

…and the videos….lol, when I told Sergiu I was making a video he was a bit shocked since he wrote something. I thought you always had to do a video, anyway, he thought he looked bad in his video…I highly doubt it, but can’t wait to see it…that is, if he sent it to you

Omg omg omg eamon just told me what you do
Aaaaaaaaggggghhhhhhh

Ok screw that video… i give up, these ppl are way to uptight to see who played better between M and myself, so screw this Logan

MY PROJECTED BOOT LIST

02: SERG
01: MICHELLE

RITE OF PASSAGE

MICHELLE,

Hi everybody so this is my rites of passage for the Supawacky game and we’ll start with

(ALEX) – Originally I think Alex put me into an alliance but I was working, I didn’t know what was going on and it was the fist day, and I was in this alliance and the person I wanted to be in it wasn’t in it but I was very happy that I was in alliance straight away because I was working and I couldn’t do anything. Alex was a bit shocked to go out first and if he would have picked someone else to be in that alliance that he started, he would have probably still been around.

(KODI) – Other tribe, so I didn’t really know him much.

(KAYDE) – She was voted out next. I don’t know, she just wasn’t around to talk to as much and I didn’t get to know her very well unfortunately.

(DANIAL) – That………was…………interesting. Yes. I don’t think I need to say much about that – he said some things, I said some things, and, yes it got a bit tense.

(branden)– I was very sorry for Branden to go. He was very good to chat to. Funny guy and hopefully I will get to play with him again in another game.

(CHANCE) – Didn’t know him. He was from the other tribe, but I heard he was a pretty strong competitor and someone to watch out for.

(ALBEE) – He was also on the other tribe. All I can think about is his bare chest actually from his photos. Very attractive looking young guy, and I heard he caused a bit of trouble in his tribe, but I don’t know that personally.

(MORAY) – The Scottish chap. I wish he would have been in my alliance because I really loved chatting to Moray. So funny. I would laugh at so many things he would say and pretty sad that he went out so soon, then I lost the reason to chat to him.

(CHRISTIAN) – I nearly turned an alliance for Christian. Chatted quite a lot, even though he was on the other tribe. Lovely guy, good competitor, tried to sway me and a couple of others.

(CANDY) – When I first heard Candy was playing this game, I must say I was a little bit scared. I have heard a lot about Candy and how she’s fierce, gets what she wants and when she was on the other tribe I don’t know whether I was happy or relieved because sometimes it’s nice to have the people you hear about close to you. I was glad when she came over to our tribe because then I got to talk to her, got to know her. Although I still think she is a fierce competitor, she is a lovely person in real life.

(NAOMI) – Didn’t know Naomi very much, only that she is an Aussie like me and her birthday is 2 days before mine so we had a quick chat about that.

(BRENDA) – Brenda was the only one at the end who I hadn’t talked to, so, very sorry for that.

(JASON) – Jason also tried to sway me…and we nearly did…we were scared of Jeremy’s idol and what he was going to do with that even though he was in my core alliance. Could have swayed…could have kept Glo in…great competitor. Tried his best, and you never know what to do in this game.

(GLORIA) – Yes, we made a pact day 2, for final 2 and I think Sergiu found that out! So, we were in with Sergiu in a final 3 and he realized that Glo and I were tight and that’s why he voted her out. You know, I don’t blame him, it’s how the game happens. I was very sad to see Glo go. I got to know her very well in this game. I had known her from another game, but our alliance went….well……I thought I was in an alliance with her, but she didn’t think I was, and she voted me out. I was pretty sad about it, but this game turned it all around and I’d love to play with Glo again. She’s a great lady, so upbeat. I hope I’m like her at her age and great playing with her. Great, great competitor. She has her finger in many, many pies….knows what’s going on with EVERYBODY!

(JEREMY) – Very sad to vote Jeremy out….my fellow Aussie. Core alliance, really didn’t want to do it, but he had that idol and it could help him all the way to the end. I had 3 boys against me and usually the girl’s voted out and I was terrified. I thought I was going, but as luck would have it, Jeremy went.

(TYLER) – Oh Tyler, those videos! They’re a bit insane. So I thought it would be really good to take Tyler to the end. I thought I would probably have a better chance against Tyler than Sergiu. You know, I wanted to stick with my alliance. Wanted to stay with my word and that’s why Tyler went instead of Sergiu. I hope I still get to see some of your videos but not the duck…don’t like that duck…a bit scary.

And that’s it. Sergiu’s last with me. He’s gone through a lot in this game…he finished school, got into Uni. He’s had a lot of life changes, as Glo did, she had people close to her die during this game. She had 3, so that was pretty bad, but otherwise, it has been a good game.

Thanks Logan and I can’t wait for these questions.

SERGIU,

(ALEX)- First voted out, and the first blindside… Your boot sure made a great start of the season.

(KODI)- Didn’t had a chace to play with you but i am sure that u were voted out because u were seen as a threat.

(KAYDE)- Kayde even ur busy schedual u still gave it ur best… too bad it was to little too late.

(DANIAL)- No doudt in my mind, the craziest player i have ever met and was thrilled to see u out.

(branden)- Never would have thought u will quit. You were a great player to chat with even tho we were on diferent tribes. I was quite angry seeing u quit.

(CHANCE)- Didn’t get to know u and not sure but something tells me we would have been quite the enemies.

(ALBEE)- The most outspoken player of the season. I enjoyed having u in the game, would have prefered if we worked together but i guess with ur ability to share ur thoughts that might have backfired. lol. Great guy tho…

(MORAY)- Moray, good old fellow. Voting you out was quite a surprise… didnt expet to do it so early but i guess under those circumstances it was the best move i could have made.

(CHRISTIAN)- Christian, not much i can say. I was honest and told u there was nothing i could do to save you, nor did i want to do anything.

(CANDY)- “Sweet” Candy, great player and thats why i had to lie to you when u were voted out. I knew that if i told u ur were done, you would have done everything in ur power to save urself, even trowing me under the bus.

(NAOMI)-Naomi you are the one person i regret not chating more. I honestly regret not reaching out to u, altho u could have done it too.

(BRENDA)- Lovable Brenda… great player and really big threat. That is why you had to go and why i wrote your name done with no regrets.

(JASON)- Jason.. very likable guy and i enjoyed talking to u. I was honest when i told u i’d rather vote for u then break daln up… hope u didnt take it personal.

(GLORIA)- Glo Glo Glo … you defenetly were the hardest vote i had to make… you are just this amazing persoan and i loved playing with you. We were tight since the begining and me being the one orchastrating your boot was really hard to do. I hated doing it but this is survivor and to be succesfull moves like that are nececery.

(JEREMY)- My fellow backstabber… u were quite ready to make ur own first strategic move and take me out. Soo happy that didnt work because if it did, i wouldnt be sitting here. We did a great job playing together and we promised f5 and we made it… was a whole new game after that.

(TYLER)- Tyler i felt really bad with voting you out. I know how personal you took it but it was the better decision. I know u feel like i ruined your dreams but i had it done to me aswell, and i wasnt going to let it happen again. Hope you will get over it and we can remain friends. You are a great guy, just remember that.
SERGIU EXIT INTERVIEW

It’s finally time to close the book on SCWL 5. You have had the time to recover from your official defeat three months ago.

1. What compelled you to sign up for my game?

I was a mixture of huge bordome, the desire to play another org and the suggenstions of past players that made me assign for this game.

2. When the cast was announced, who in particular were you looking to align with?

It was funny, because while the tribes were being picked, I pictured myself on Brandons and Allees tribe, I had been talking to them and was sure I had an alliance secured. After edining on the other tribe, I had no realationships with any1 and had to start fresh, so I didn’t perticalary was looking to align myself with some1.

3. You were the second-to-last person picked to be on the tribe. And it was by Tyler. The person you picked was Jeremy. Did that alone dictate who you wanted to take to the end with you?

Not really, I mean I had to choose between only 2 players. I had no intentions to take Jeremy with me to the end at that moment, but I figured since I was to the who saved him from MGI, I could use that to align myself with him.

4. The first challenge was putting together the slots of letters in the form of X-O-O-O-X-X to make phrases. Did anybody establish themselves as a strong player right off the bat in challenges?

Well during the first challenge, I was mainly focused on my part, I didn’t really pay attention to what the others were doing. And after we had lost, I didn’t much care who stood out as a strong player, I was mainly trying to make sure it wasn’t me who was sent home, because I had no secured alliance at that point.

5. But you guys lost due to a tiebreaker. The Alex boot has been explained pretty thoroughly. He played too hard and made too many conflicting deals. If he did not play hard, who would have gone? Keep in mind Kayde was immune from the first vote.

Well honestly it could have been me. Glo and Michelle had something going, Moray and Tyler aswell, Jeremy did quite well in that challenge, so it was pretty much between Me and Alex, cuz as u said Kayde had immunity. I guess we will never know the answer to that question, will we?:))

6. Did you consider placing anybody besides Danial on MGI during the game?

No. Danial was just suuuch a bad player that I wanted to get rid of him every time he came back. It was just impossible to play with him, and he was always the easy choice.

7. You took charge in the second immunity challenge. Was that a conscious strategy to make yourself valuable or because you did not want to return to Tribal Council?

Well, at the beginning no1 seemed sure about what they have to do, and no1 was acualy willing to step up and I really wanted to avoied another Tribal because I was still unsure about where I stood in the tribe. So I just gave it my best to organize the challenge good and explain to every1 what we are supposed to do, and I have to say I am quite proud of the outcome. Not that I won it by myself, but I had a good performance in that challenge and I think I showed.

8. During these first two rounds you made an alliance with Michelle, Gloria, and Jeremy. Gloria proposed the alliance while Michelle was the one who came up with it. Were you aware of that? Or do you have a different recollection of how the alliance was created?

I was aware of the fact that Gloria and Michelle were together since the beginning. Didn’t know who’s idea the alliance was, but honestly I couldn’t have cared less.

9. In round three Tyler led you guys in the maze and lost. Kayde was inactive, and Danial was once again sent to MGI. I presume the reasoning behind that is self-explanatory?

Well I think it is obvious… I mean Danial was kept in the game simply because Gloria made some sort of deal with him and he kept sending her Idol clues… I would have preferred to take Danial out and keep Kayde, even if she was slightly unactive, Danial was SOOOOO ANNOYING.

10. In round four the tribes had to play the almighty game of Quoridor. Your tribe pretty much owned Spau in the process. Danial lost the duel to Albee and was placed on Daln where he was booted. He revealed your Final Four alliance. How did you counter Danial revealing what ended up being the truth?

Well we knew it was coming, I mean Danial kept saying that if we send him to MGI over and over again he would reveal our alliance, but at that point it was pretty much clear who was playing with who. Danial did simply point out, what many were already guessing.

11. And now the question I have asked everyone–how did you handle Danial during the game? Do you have any comments on his actions? Because he was in direct public conflict with Michelle who was a critical ally for you.

Logan, belive me, I am quite a patient person and I can usually tolerate those kind of people, but Danial made me feel like Earth was coming to an end. I tried every single possibility to point out that he had a horrible social game and that I was trying to help him, and all I got back were more and more threats. I understood he is suffering from some sort of a desease and I am sorry about that, but he’s indeed a nutcase. My whole alliance was nice to him and tried to help him as much as we could, but he just wouldn’t get that. And then he got in that argument with Michelle and we knew he would end up revealing our alliance.

12. The start of round five had the mutiny. Candy mutinied to your tribe. Do you think you may have perhaps made too close of a bond with Candy when you knew she was not part of your inner alliance?

I realized to late how Candy is as a player even if I heard soo many about her and her gameplay. I have nothing against her as a person, but she was a huge disappointment to me as a player. No1 on my tribe was happy she mutinied and wanted her out asap. I did my best to make her feel welcome, then I saved her butt twice at two different tribal councils and one of those got me in trouble and at the end she showed no gratitude. Bottom line is, I did lie to her, but it was only one lie and I did that because I knew if I told her she was next, she would even get me out to save herself by any means. Also she did the same to me, she lied to me and used me to get herself further, and then at FTC she had the nerves to call me lyer and that I played like Russell. Anyway, I moved on, as she asked me many times and it was a lesson learned for me.

13. Or were you truly intending to work with Candy long term?

I didn’t intend to work with Candy on long terms, but I was going to do my best to keep her in the game longer than the others spaus because I had a relationship with candy before the game, and I did consider her a friend not some1 I would align myself with.

14. This was the golden age for Daln. You guys won the flag/logo puzzle. After the challenge Branden quit. Chance nearly quit too, but was merely voted out. This was the round when Christian defeated Albee on MGI. Did you start talking to Christian at this point?

I didn’t right away. Gloria and Michelle started talking to him. I was quit busy at that time and wasn’t too active socialy. At on point he started a conversation with me but Christian and myself talked only about random stuff.

15. The next challenge was a one-time challenge for the SCWL series–just do not look at the group page. The only person on your tribe who fell to the temptation was Glo. But she was sitting out, so those rewards did not count. Did this change your position with Glo down the road?

Not at all. I mean we figured out that only those who were participating at the challenge shoudn’t check the main page so I knew she didn’t mess up anything. Also we got the chance to check who was getting rewards from Spau so it was somesort of a gain for us that Glo checked the main page.

16. Albee went home. If I recall correctly, you did not get along particularly well with Albee. Did your opinion of him change after reading the episodes?

I had nothing with Albee but I had the guts to call out his awfull social game in one of my confessions and when he read that he flipped out. We chated a bit during the game but not that much… he was mocking me, and I was mocking him. But after he read my conf. he caused a scean, again, and I just told him I simply said the truth. He had arguments with most of the cast and he just didn’t know when to lay low. I didn’t change my opinion, I still think he is too arrogant and loooves to play the victim.

17. Then came the time to vote on whether or not to merge. You collectively decided to not merge. What was the thinking behind that decision? What were the initial reasons for merging?

I don’t recall existing any initial reason to merge. We were all on the same page as far as staying two different tribes and that showed in the results. We thought we had the numbers, strong players on our tribe and that we would be able to defeat Spau in any upcoming challenge.

18. Knowing you made Final Two, deciding not to merge did not impact your fate. Do you think you would have made the Final Two if you decided to merge instead?

I do think the outcome would have been different because Spau would have had more numbers and Jeremys idol might have been played differently. I am glad it wasn’t the case tho, and that I got to use it in my own advantage.

19. Tyler and Gloria play the Wordsmith challenge. They lost. Christian lost the duel and joined your tribe. What happened in the discussion leading up to the vote?

Well every1 wanted candy out, I wanted her to stay, and it was quite a chaos. Every1 had their ideas, the girls told Christian he might be spared, candy started saying she knew she was going home, I told her to chill cuz I am trying to fix it and when Christian told me who I was voting for I was honest and told him I see no reason in voteing for a Daln.

20. Were you going to ally with Christian and Candy at all? Do you think you made the ultimate decision behind having you, Gloria, Tyler, and Moray vote for Christian?

I was never going to align with Christian or Candy, even if they both told me they are free angents and could use a f2 deal. I do belive that I was the one who convinced Glo Tyler and Moray to vote for Christian because I was desperately trying to save Candy’s ass. And it got myself and the others in trouble cuz of that. But eventually it all turned out good.

21. Michelle did not vote with you and instead voted Candy. Did that strain the relationship between the two of you?

No.. Michelle was quite clear she wanted Candy out, and I saw that she was not going to change her vote. I knew I had enough votes to save Candy so I didn’t bother to insist on Michelle because I didn’t want her to do something she was uncomfortable with.

22. Christian played the idol and was safe. Did that stun you?

Honestly it did a bit. I was sure Naomi or Brenda had the idol and that they were not going to give it to Christian.

23. Jeremy also self-voted. Were you re-thinking your main alliance because Gloria was your only close ally who voted with you?

Not really, I mean I was the one who made the dumb move to protect some1 who had no part in our original tribe. So it was a reason for them to rethink the alliance with me.

24. The re-vote was 2-1-1 against Moray. You were the only one who did not receive a vote as you sent Moray out the door. Why Moray? And how did you manage to not have a single person vote against you?

This tribal was one of the hardest ones I was ever a part of. We were only 4, one was going home and one to MGI… it was reaaaal hard to make sure I was none of those two. I knew I had Glo. Her and myself spend hours trying to figure out the best way to approach this vote and in the end we realized the only way we could both be safe, was to turn Moray agains Tyler or Tyler against Moray. We had more luck with Tyler, and he was ready to vote for Moray, but that didn’t save me from MGI. So i ended up asking Gloria to vote for Tyler, Tyler and myself would vote Moray, and we guessed he would vote Glo. That was my idea situation.

25. In the next round Naomi used the Mutiny Trigger. This led to a mutiny of Christian and Candy back to Spau. Tyler and Naomi were on MGI. Did that alter your gameplan? Were you expecting them to mutiny?

I knew Naomi had that trigger, but I was not sure how it worked. I was not surprised that they moved back to Spau. I mean they both recived votes at the previous TC so they knew they were at the bottom. It changed out gameplay a bit because the person who won the MGI duel would reenter the game, and that person would have decided who had the numbers, so we had to vin immunity and save Tyler.

26. Just as crucial as the scrambled word puzzle and geography puzzle was who would win the duel at MGI. Did you or anybody else prefer to be in that situation to duel to begin with?

No. I mean we were sooo lucky we had Jeremy, cuz idk if we would have won otherwise.

27. Jeremy still had his idol. Do you believe him that he would have given his idol to Tyler if Tyler lost the duel?

Jeremy and Tyler ahd a few conversation I didn’t know about so there is a big chance that Jeremy would have saved Tyler.

28. You guys win the challenge. Let’s say not only you lose that challenge but Tyler lost too. Who would have gone in that scenario?

I am quite sure Tyler would have been voted out, and probably Jeremy on MGI(if he hadn’t used his idol).

29. Christian is voted out of Spau this round. In the following round you merge because you guys had the numbers. Did Christian being eliminated change your gameplan?

No. As I said I had no intention to align with Christian, so I was ok with Christian leaving.

30. You were the one who talked with the opposing tribe after the merge. Do you think that made the opposing tribe feel you were shady or too under-handed during the second half of the game?

I only had random chats with few people… About weather sports or stuff like that, no strategy talk or stuff like that. I don’t belive that made me look shady nor under-handed.

31. You promised Candy that she was staying when she was voted out, according to Candy. Did that really happen in your eyes? And do you regret potentially buttering her up as she exits?

I didn’t promis her safty, I told her we weren’t voting for her. And as I said many times, I only did that because I figured out how she plays. If I told her we were voting for her, she would have used everything she could, turn everything I told her, against me, so that she was saved and I doomed. I promised her twice that I would do anything I could to help her stay as long as possible, and prove that I respected that promis is that I went to a tough TC instead of her. I wouldn’t call it buttering her up, because I did all that cuz I thought we were friends, however I do regret helping her out that much because she defenetly felt no gratitude towards that.

32. Candy, Naomi, Brenda, and Jason all go in a row like clockwork. Any alternate plans that you were considering or that you shot down that other players proposed?

I was set on Daln5 til final 5. I never thought about voting a daln over a Spau and prove to that is the fact that I turned down Glo and Michelles suggestions more than once. They wanted to take Jeremy out instead of Jason and I didn’t want to hear any of that. I knew they were scared of the idol, but I was planning to use that idol so that it would benefit me, not just get rid of it.

33. We get down to five. You win individual immunity. Did you know that Jeremy was targeting you if you lost? Would you have been voted otu if you lost the challenge?

I did not know that Jeremy was targeting me, but I did feel like Gloria was starting to have second thoughts about the F3 with me. So I defenetly think that if I had lost the challenge, I would have been voted out, because Jeremy would have used his idol anyway.

34. Tell us about the plan for Jeremy to give the idol to Tyler, and for you to intentionally vote Tyler knowing he would be playing the idol.

Well bottom line was I felt like Gloria was having second thoughts and wanted me out before f3. And I didn’t want to settle for less than F2, so I made the suggestion to Jeremy, that if the girls want him out I would tell him so he uses his idol. I had immunity, so I was safe even if we had to revote, so I came up with that plan, because in case of a revote, only Glo Michelle and myself would go to a new TC, where again I would be safe, so I would have the say in who goes home. It was my plan to break up Glo and Michelles F2 deal. But at one point they got scared about the idol so they changed the decision to Tyler, so I suggested to Jeremy to give it to Tyler so that we break the two girls up. I didn’t know if he was on board with that plan, but since I had immunity he would eighter get out Tyler and me next, but then find himself 3rd, or he could help me break the girls up and I promised him F2. So he went along with the plan and I managed to use his idol for my own advancement in the game.

35. The plan works. You, Gloria, and Michelle remain behind. You vote out Gloria. Why her instead of Michelle?

I knew that she was a great social player just like michelle, but she also had a good strategical game. So I leaned more to taking her out because I saw her as the bigger threat. Also the fact that I felt like she was turning on me, made me feel like it was best to get her out and keep Michelle, who promised her loyalty til the end.

36. Final Four. You, Jeremy, and Michelle all threw the challenge to let Tyler win. Why was it necessary to knock out Jeremy and blindside him instead of Tyler or Michelle? Because Jeremy did not see that coming.

During the challenge I was chating to Jeremy, who was my f2, about if we should take the advantage so one of us wins the final immunity challenge. He was on board, so we also suggested it to Michelle, who told me that Jeremy was trying to take me out. At that point I knew he needs to be the next to go and I used the fact that he didn’t know Michelle told me against him. We decided both to drop the challenge for the advantage, and then I convinced Michelle to drop the challenge so Tyler could win. He also told Tyler about the plan to vote me out, I did try to convince Tyler not to vote for me, but I wasn’t sure if he would do it or not. So I focused on Michelle, I told her I kept my word up to that point, I would also keep it until F2 and that she shoudnt vote with Jeremy and potentially Tyler because those two would then take each other to F2. I somehow convinced her to stay loyal, and at that point I didn’t care if Tyler would or wouldn’t vote for Jeremy because even incase of a tie, I had 0 past votes so I would be safe. In the end it came up the right way and they both voted for Jeremy which led to a huge blindside.

37. Final Three. You win immunity. You took Michelle to the end as opposed to Tyler. Do you think you would have beaten Tyler in the F2 instead of Michelle? Or were you screwed either way?

I am quite sure I would have beaten Tyler in a F2, but I also thought I would beat Michelle in a F2. I took Michelle because of that, I felt comfortabal going up against eighter however I did promis Michelle more than once F2 and I was going to keep that promise.

38. It seemed like you were under the impression that you were going to win upon entering Final Tribal Council. Where do you think you went wrong in misreading the jury?

I don’t think I misread the jury that bad, it was just I had a bad FTC. I felt like ppl didn’t read my answers properly, and every time I came up with a reason or an argument for my actions, and they were legit, every1 ignored it and accused me of being a lier and a backstabber. After that Gloria was campaigning for Michelle, Candy flipped out cuz I was to arrogant about my game and I was just disappointed. Started panicking and I gave one bad answer after the other.

39. You lost in the closest vote in SCWL history. Is there anything you could have done to change just one of the jury votes? Or was Michelle and Tyler going to beat you no matter what?

I am absolutely surten that I would have won against Tyler by a bigger difference than one vote. I went into FTC thinking I had Candy’s vote, and that was the one vote that cost me the game.

40. After progressing through this game, what are the biggest lessons you have learned?

Well I have learned not to be that outspoken about how good I think I am. Modesty is a good thing to have. I learned that Candy is an awfull player (not person), player. And I also learned that no matter how good you play survivor, you ALWAYS have to think of every1 in the jury, not only those who you think would vote for you. I feel sorry I didn’t chat with Christian or Jason more, and that I didn’t put that much effort into getting to know them and their game.

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for playing this game!

MICHELLE EXIT INTERVIEW

So you won. Sergiu didn’t. Ready to talk about it?

Note I am making this interview drastically different than the other seventeen interviews of the season.

I will quickly jog your memory of what happened during the game.

18: ALEX – Voted out because he was scheming too much. Lost word puzzle.
17: KODI – Won the missions task where each person was assigned a number and a task to complete.
16: KAYDE – Voted out because she was inactive and potential connections to the other tribe. Lost the maze challenge.
15: DANIAL – Voted out by other tribe. Won Quoridor.
14: BRANDEN – Quit after your tribe won the flag/logo puzzle.
13: CHANCE – Voted out.
12: ALBEE – Won the “Don’t Check the Group” Challenge.
**CHOSE NOT TO MERGE**
11: MORAY – Christian played his idol. A 2-1-1 vote that sent Moray home. Your tribe lost the Wordsmith challenge.
10: CHRISTIAN – Christian and Candy mutinied. Your tribe won the Word scramble + Geography.
**VOTED TO MERGE**
09: CANDY – Voted out because of being from other tribe. Gloria wins endurance challenge by default.
08: NAOMI – Voted out because of being from other tribe. Brenda wins reality TV identification.
07: BRENDA – Voted out because of being from other tribe. Jeremy wins the word search.
06: JASON – Voted out because of being from other tribe. Jeremy wins the Logan Says challenge.
05: GLORIA – Voted out because the other three wanted to split you and Gloria up. Tyler plays Jeremy’s idol. Sergiu wins the Medley barely over you.
04: JEREMY – Voted out ebcause he was seen as a huge threat by everybody else. Everybody except Tyler throws Quoridor.
03: TYLER – Voted out because Sergiu did not want to backstab you. Sergiu wins Oath of Silence and takes you to the end.
02: SERGIU – Because the jury voted you to win.

1. You and Sergiu both came from SurviveWar: Vietnam. Incidentally, the last Facebook-based Survivor game that I played. Did you two align simply because you two were from the same game?

I had no idea he came from Survivewar! That game was a whirlwind. We aligned because we liked each other.

2. When did you come up with the idea to have an alliance of four between you, Jeremy, Sergiu, and Gloria? 1st/2nd day (depending on time zones).

Gloria and I had played together in ER…my first game, and we said that if we ever played a game together again we would try to take it to the end. I was then put in an alliance without her when I was at work, so I had to make a new alliance containing her. I then sussed out Jeremy and Sergiu, liked them, talked to Glo and then approached them with my idea.

3. What is it that you saw in this alliance?

I saw 4 strong players in different aspects of the game. Glo is very social and people like to confide in her. I thought of Jeremy as a challenge king…and I was right. I saw Sergiu as someone who was quiet but gets the job done. I saw us all as being trustworthy to each other. I just had a feeling that it was right.

4. What surprised you the most when reading the episodes? Any event or contestant in particular?

The challenge between Danial and Albee on MGI. The insane argument. The ridiculous statements….and then your asides had me laughing out loud!

5. How does winning this game, your first Survivor win, rank up with some of the other seasons that you have played? I rank seasons on a social plane first. I enjoy the relationships made and the fun which comes out of the game. I mean, it is no use doing it, if you’re not having fun. I rank this game equal 1st, along with ER.

6. Where did Tyler fit into the alliance? Because he was not a part of the core four, but he was the only other person who made it to the merge with you guys, and advanced all the way to the end.

Tyler became our 5th early on. He was easy to chat to and he tried hard in challenges although it didn’t result in a win. We trusted him more than the others.

8. On Opening Day, the tribes were ultimately divided between those who were experienced against the nine of you who were largely new and sophomore players. Your side devastated the experienced players. What gave your tribe ultimately the edge?

Our cohesian. I find that more seasoned players have “baggage”. They know how others have played in past games. They know what they are up against. Strong personalities in that group clashed, whereas strong personalities in our tribe were quiet because we didn’t really know each other well. I also think we had a pretty fun tribe.

9. After your alliance was put together on day one, you were known as the one being glued to Gloria. Everyone assumed you two would have a Final Two deal. Did that deal really exist? It existed as soon as tribes were announced.

10. To follow up on that, do you think your relationship with Gloria helped you or hurt you? Were you trying to hide behind Gloria so she would be the obvious target?

I don’t think my relationship with Glo was a hinderance. A strong alliance is always a help. I never hide behind anyone…mind you several times she would say to me…let me find out the information….but I wouldn’t just sit around doing nothing. But Glo isn’t a shrinking violet and I think we are all pale in comparison to the shining light that is Glo.

11. You guys decided not to merge when it was down to eleven. Do you think that move gave you the game? Or would the outcome have been the same if you merged at 11 with Moray and Christian still in the game.

Us 4 didn’t think we could trust the other members of our tribe not to join with the others in a merge. So we wanted to wittle our numbers down a little bit more to assure our alliance moving to the end.

12. Moray and Christian seemed to be big strategists. Did it make your game easier because they were both eliminated before the individual stage of the game? I imagine managing eight personalities is easier than ten at the merge.

I genuinely liked Moray and Christian on a personal level and would have loved to have been aligned with them, but I had a concrete alliance and I didn’t want to risk it. We needed our tribe to be a little smaller to assure our movement forward.

13. Let’s talk about Christian and his idol actually. When it was down to eleven, and your tribe chose not to merge, Tyler and Gloria lost the Wordsmith challenge. You went to TC and was the only person to vote for Candy. Why did you vote for Candy?

I had a reason, a really good reason, but I can’t remember it now. I always thought she was a major threat though. Maybe someone else can remember. Sorry Candy if you are reading this…..I should be able to remember.

14. Were you aware of the rules behind the hidden immunity idol when you cast that vote for Candy?

Yes. I remember the HUGE discussions which went on for hours before that vote. All the scenarios…how it would go down etc. There were so many things which could go wrong.

15. Afterwards, you and Candy had a fight because you voted against her. Yet at the end of the game Candy hated Sergiu more, and gave you the win. What changed in the relationship between the two of you?

She said I was honest when we talked…even though she still thinks I outright lied to her. I know I did change my vote at the last minute. Sergiu, on the other hand, argued with her in a way she didn’t like. We women pick up subtle things which irks us and sometimes that can overide anything else. It isn’t as if we talked more after she was voted out.

16. Another person you had a fight with was Danial. How did you handle Danial coming at you non-stop publicly after he was voted out by the opposing tribe?

He was just sprouting ridiculous lines at me, which were generalisations. If someone accuses me of something, or calls me something which is untrue, I will retaliate. When it got ridiculous I let it go, but I couldn’t let him go on and on at me without replying. I actually thought the unveiling of our alliance by him, would be the end of us, but no-one targeted us afterwards. I was amazed!

17. When did you realize that Jeremy found the final idol in the game? How were you planning to combat that?

He told me when we thought Tyler might lose a challenge at MGI. He told Sergiu and I, but not Gloria…..he told her a bit later. When she found out, she didn’t trust him anymore because he had kept it from us for a certain period of time, even when we were all still trying to figure the clues out.

18. If Jeremy lost the challenge at the round of seven or round of six, would you have followed Gloria’s plan to eliminate him?

No. Sergiu and I really trusted him. We were always having lengthy discussions about it though. Sergiu, Glo and I had a final 3 pact at that point.

19. At the beginning of the game your alliance let Gloria claim the idol. Why did you let her take the idol? Was there long-term strategy behind that?

She always wanted to do it. Then she shared the info with us so we could maybe all work on it for one of us to get it.

20. What type of contact did you have with Candy, Naomi, Brenda, and Jason after the merge? Was there any interest to work with them?

I think I had 2 conversations with Naomi, but neither of them were about the game. I never talked to Brenda. Jason and I would talk daily. He wanted to be kept in and I nearly kept him in. I talked to Candy in a group situation, and sometimes individually, but I didn’t put more trust in her, than in my old tribemates.

21. Then it got down to five. Tyler lost immunity. You and Gloria voted against Tyler. Did you really have no idea that they were going to flip the game to oust Gloria?

I had NO idea.

22. Why do you think Sergiu kept you over Gloria?

I think Gloria went in with all guns blazing, and I think she would have put everything on the line to try and keep herself in the game. Sergiu may not have liked this attitude…but I am only surmising here. I was more resigned to the fact that it was his decision and ultimately he would feel what was right. I talked to him like always…asking about his personal life as well. I always say that I would rather go to the end with an equal. Maybe he thought we were more equal than Glo and him, her being a social queen and all. But really……only Sergiu knows.

23. What is the difference between Sergiu voting against Tyler to make him activate the idol rather than just vote Gloria out in the first place?

We needed the idol out of the equation. That thing was driving us to distraction. We talked about it non-stop.

24. Final Four. Sergiu convinced you and Jeremy to throw the challenge. Jeremy and Tyler were scheming with you too. How were you able to trust them to keep you after they all lied to you constantly in the previous round?

First of all…no-one convinced me. I decided to do it. That move was bizarre and we realised that everyone else would think we had all lost our minds. There was a reason for the lying and I understood. It is Survivor after all.

25. You survive a 50/50 vote against Gloria. Then you survive a 1-in-3 vote against Jeremy and Sergiu. I am guessing Jeremy and Sergiu always pitched the idea of how to get rid of each other throughout the game. What made you ultimately side with Sergiu to take out Jeremy?

I already had the final 3 pact with him and Glo, so it was always going to be Sergiu over Jeremy.

26. Final Three. Tyler, somebody who you never connected with as much as everybody on the tribe did, is still in the game. If you had won immunity, I am guessing you would have taken Sergiu to the end?

Yes, my initial word is gold…..my first alliance is concrete unless someone really does me wrong.

27. Entering Final Tribal Council, what did you think were the differences between your game and Sergiu’s.

I didn’t make any other side alliances out of our core of 4, whereas he did. I may have made more connections socially than him. We both tried to win challenges but weren’t that successful.

28. What do you think you did well during the game that Sergiu failed at?

Nothing really…..I did have more time to talk to more people though, but he did have his final exams on.

29. What do you think you did well during Final Tribal Council that Sergiu failed at?

It seemed as if people liked the way I explained myself, but I wouldn’t say Sergiu “failed” at anything.

30. Final vote was 5-4 in favour of you. Did any of that surprise you?

Not really

31. You have probably been following SCWL 6. What are your impressions of the game thus far?

What a crazy start! I was going for Adam and then the way he played rubbed people up the wrong way. It is Survivor after all…you are supposed to size people up, think about who they may be with, and work out how to best get to the end. Adam is a teacher, he writes everything down, he loves diagrams, he likes multiple alliances. That is NO reason to attack someone. He wasn’t hurting anyone, he wasn’t swearing at people or calling them names. THEN someone accuses him of chatting them up. LUDICROUS……that’s what it is. Can you tell I am angry? I played with him in ER, he was like my Boston Rob. He knows the game so well. He is very analytical with it all. I hate how people can get vilified for the way they play this game. If you play the game…for godsake, expect to get betrayed, backstabbed, walked over for someone else to get to the end, because that is the general nature of Survivor. Take an alliance with a pinch of salt and always keep your enemies close, but I hated the way that all played out. Anyway….off my soap box……..

32. I have asked a few hundred questions. Since you won, I turn the exit interview process over to you. Any questions you have for me?

-Why did you think I had no chance of winning…even near the end?

Most of it was based on precedent and what I was seeing on a daily basis.

Everybody who has won in SCWL up to this point have been total dominators strategically who are also in the top two or three in terms of challenge performance.

Adam dominated the prequel from challenges and strategy against a field of inactives.
Mervin had a tight 5-person alliance where he had a 3 within that 5 and a 2 within that 3, him and Marty found two of the three idols, and just slaughtered everybody except Fiona in challenges at the end of the game.
David had all of his ducks lined up strategically, was at the centre of most votes, and also was one of the few who could compete with Dave in challenges.
Kim. . .well, Kim’s only competition was a sixteen year old who vanished on day 37 to give her the win by default lol.
And Clayton controlled the game strategically, made sure the same guy he was targeting was also the same guy who wanted to drag Clayton to the Final Two, and Clayton was a leader in challenges. Oh, and Clayton found two of the three idols.

And all of these players were targeted by at least one person who saw them as a major threat in the second half of the game.

Michelle, you have been the first exception to that rule. You never won an immunity challenge, and your best performance in an immunity challenge was 2nd. . .and that was in the Final Immunity Challenge.

Also, all of the other winners received votes during the course of the game. Nobody voted against you once unless by default when only you and one other person was vulnerable.

You also did not have a blemish on your record if you were in Final Tribal Council. If I was Sergiu, I would be stumped how to beat you in a Final Two and would need a plan to get rid of you before day 39. I believe this is what Jeremy was saying after he was voted out too. Sergiu and Tyler need to both get rid of you if they want a shot to win.

And you will notice that you were always near the top of every boot list in each episode. Even when Daln was down a number in a couple of the weeks. I thought you would be able to fly under the radar regardless if you were in the majority or minority, but would be dumped on day 37 or 38.

I thought your only chance at winning the game was if you won one of the last two immunity challenges, and with people like Gloria, Tyler, Jeremy, Moray, Christian, Naomi, Brenda, and Candy all in the game, I thought a scenario where you needed that crucial challenge win would never happen.

-How on earth did you keep your cool with Danial at MGI?

Unlike some of the situations in SCWL 6 where the arguments are between people who express at least a shred of intelligence. . .Danial clearly had a mental disability.

For anyone who has a close relative with a mental disability, by the time you are 22, you know you have to be patient. You know to never take any of their anger with you seriously if it does not make sense to you.

This is why you and everyone else listened to me when I said to leave Danial alone when I needed to calm him down or talk to him.

Even Albee backed off if I needed him to do so. Albee.

In the first four seasons, I rarely talk to the contestants during the game. As Vincent Chavarria would say, “Logan is a robot as a host”.

But when it came to Danial, and situations in the early rounds of SCWL 6, I have been brought in as some sort of unofficial nineteenth contestant when a player is angry with me specifically.

I honestly did not know what was going on in the first four rounds between alliances and dynamics because of how often Danial would just send me a bunch of F-bombs in my inbox or blame me for who knows what. Some of the more disturbing material were removed from the episodes because nobody really needs to see that posted online, and I have a feeling Danial and his extended family probably appreciate that.

And knowing how inactive Danial was in challenges and TCs, I knew he was not going to be in the game for more than five rounds. If he survived round four, I was going to send him a warning that he could not miss another challenge or TC vote if he wanted to avoid ejection.

Plus one of Danial’s more intense explosions came at three o’ clock in the morning on the day of when I had four wisdom teeth removed, high on a ton of medication throughout the course of the day, and not having a wink of sleep as my mouth would just not. stop. bleeding.

So if someone asks “What was your experience with getting your wisdom teeth removed?”
My answer would be “Taking anti-anxiety pills against my will before the surgery that did nothing, not being knocked out for surgery, clinging to my dad’s shoulder as he led me to the car because I lost all equilibrium, heading back to the dentist because I was freaking out I could not swallow from bleeding on half a roll of paper towel, watching Million Dollar Baby and thinking it is one of the dumbest movie twists I have seen, and being harrassed by somebody from Australia online at three in the morning”.

-If you could see 2 of the players from SCWL 5 pair up for TAR, who would they be and why?

Well, I think Gloria would have to be one. And who was her closest partner in the game? Oh, it was you. My answer is you and Gloria.

And hopefully your team name is “Gloria & Michelle” instead of “Michelle & Gloria” because if the name of the first teammate ends in an ‘A’, Phil will pronounce “and” as “arnd”. He has done it for twenty-three seasons straight. Phil never avoids that error.

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank you for -winning- this game.

Thank you for having me.

FINAL NOTE:

I want to thank everyone who played hard in SCWL 5. Starting with about round six or seven I was having a ton of fun hosting the game and seeing it all play out. Even though the cast of SCWL 4 was the most laid back group ever, there were subtle errors that were fixed for SCWL 5. Although nobody could pinpoint it directly, these fixes made the game go much smoother and is why, along with the cast, SCWL 5 was such a success. Daln not only won the season overall, but they were probably the best group of people to interact with on a daily basis. Gloria, Jeremy, Tyler, Sergiu, and Michelle left as our final five truly made this season have the craziest endgame since the SCWL Prequel because the level of strategy, deception, and competitiveness in challenges took the season to a whole new level. The 5-4 vote at the end shows you how big of contenders all of these players really were.

Moray and Christian, I know both of you were bummed to go out early, but I do appreciate how hard you played in your first Survivor ORG. Each round once we got down to twelve players truly felt like a big player was going down at the conclusion of each vote. This is why the season was so dang competitive and fun at the same time.

I intend to get around to transcribing the Final Tribal Council of SCWL 5 within the next week. It is not of too much interest to you only because it is merely what played out in the main group with no new material added. I doubt I will rate each finalist’s answer to each question like I did with SCWL 1 and 3.

I just want to say in advance that I know at least three-quarters of you want to sign up for All Stars (I even got a message from Kayde about three weeks ago that she is seeking redemption), but sadly, an all-stars where all 60-70 people who want to play again are included is not possible. However, after All-Stars I will likely have 2-4 players being brought back in accordanc with some sort of theme. And knowing how many people have retired from Survivor ORGs and that virtually no one from SCWL 3 is around other than Kim anymore, hopefully you will be contacted sooner rather than later.

Lastly, on behalf of the production crew for SCWL 5, we thank -all of you- for playing this game!

Oh, and congratulations to Michelle on a win very well earned. Great job.
