Immunity Challenge XVIII: Super Second Chances.

Winner: Rudez

Voted Out: Lyndsay

Fake Idols Played: One by Marcelo and one by Renee.

Real Idols Played: None by Lyndsay.

Vote Count: 4-2 (Lyndsay-Renee)

7.171 Previously on SCWL. . .

– The seven players were pleased to hear that they were re-merged as individuals, and would remain this way for the rest of the season.

– At the immunity challenge, the last Warrior Rudez was able to save herself from elimination. The long time alliance between Lyndsay, Jeremy, Sergiu, and Efe was now at risk.

– But Marcelo and Renee sat on the outside of the alliance, and found themselves out of harm’s way as Lyndsay and Jeremy aimed to take each other out.

– Jeremy thought he had the real idol, but it was really Lyndsay who had it in her possession.

– Lyndsay made a risk by not playing her idol, and it paid off as Jeremy’s threat level reached red and blindsided him with a unanimous vote.

– With only six people remaining, and with her close friend Rudez still wearing immunity, and Sergiu and Efe continuing to control this game, Marcelo and Renee may finally be in jeopardy.

– Six remain; who will be voted out this round?

7.172 Round 17 Confessionals

EFE,

Confession: This round is getting confusing and it sucks. Rudez is the only boot that would improve my chances but we can’t vote her because she won.

I wonder when this thing will end. I hope there is no-immunity round soon. As I know it’s either gonna be Lyndsay or DQ.

I love Lynsday but I am not sure If we are a duo as we used to be. Again Rudez set a wall between us, I feel like that.

If Rudez continues to win these challenges Lynsday will be risky to keep because she has the idol, she will vote with rudez and she may have Marcelo. It’s hard to understand Marcelo obv he is playing both me and Lynds, I assume he is closer with us.

On the other hand DQ won’t pose a threat till f4 or f3, I see her harmless. Voting Lynds will be so difficult for me If I choose that path but It’s no longer S6 and everyone has their own plans. gonna be disturbing round…

LYNDSAY,

Yeah, I dunno what to do….

I have a F2 with everyone but DQ and I’m stupid enough to think that they’ll all honour it.

I think I have controlled this entire game and it’s been great. I honestly don’t think anyone sees that I’ve actually been playing them? Jeremy accused me of playing both sides, so maybe I’m just being delusional.

Whatever, every vote with the exception of the Brian one has gone exactly how I wanted it to. If that is controlling everything, I dunno what is! I mean, Jer/Ser voted out Naomi to please me!

Anyway, so I would ideally like to go to the F2 with Marcelo because I can beat him… everybody else will be hard.

I don’t think I can win against Efe? I dunno, of course I think I have played a better game than him, but he has at east taked to some on the jury.

I have no ever spoken to Leif, Lister, DQ or Aaron… I will likely not get their vote? Serg ha though… he is trying to tell me that he betrayed them all and none will vote for him, but he at least SPOKE to them, so that’ll give him votes over me.

Now Rudez… she’ll get points for being an underdog, but.. I carried her.

I am the reason she and Brian made it so far. THAT I truly believe because I have kept the vote off of them constantly. Rudez messed up her socia game… nobody actually likes her and she is way too aggressive, so… ya know, I ow her there.

All she has going for her is that she is Ky. Thing is, I’ll be betraying everyone which will make them bitter, but Rudez and I are F2… we have been since before this game started and anyone who doesn’t believe that we’ll take each other to the end is just stuid… which is why i suspect blindside

I will be blindsided in this game, and if I’m not, these people are idiots…

Anyway, assuming I survive this round… things will get CRAZY! I’m gunna have to make a choice.

Everyone will want Rudez out, and I have an idol that can safe her, but by doing that I just spell out to everyone that she and I will be F2.

She wants Efe out, and Serg will go for it… but then i betray Efe and I dunno if I can do that? Obviously it’s guna have to happen, but it’s too soon! I dunno if I can do that to poor Efe. He has been nothing but loyal to me, while Rudez has f—ed me over so many times.

Also, if I vote out Efe, Marcelo might freak out!!! I need Marcelo to be loyal to me, and he really has made me fee good recently. Still though, I dunno if I can believe that alllll of these people trly believe I am with them. I think Rudez does, but how can everyone else?

hence a blideside will have to take place, especially since Efe, Rudez know I have an idol

–AFTER TC–

I can see your header for this episode now!

Lyndsay suspects her own downfall, but doesn’t play idol!!

MARCELO,

mario party 2

sit out

RENEE,

So it’s been far too long since I wrote a confessional. Once again while playing SCWL my personal life has had many serious life changing events happening and I am so surprised I’ve made it to the final 7! Who knew sucking at challenges would make me so valuable!? It’s what got me to F4 in my season I suppose. So it really just comes down to social skills for me, AND loyalty.

Speaking of which, since my last confession we merged obviously and just before the merge Rudez did the unthinkable and turned on our “Happy” core alliance by voting out the one person I had only just decided I really wanted to allign with and go to the end with: Christian.

Needless to say I was beyond pissed. Why turn on your core alliance before merge? It was the biggest mistake Rudez made in this game – in my opinion. The second biggest mistake was offering me up to the other tribe Co, to vote OUT right at the merge & then telling me she had no choice & it was decided and there was nothing she could do about it blah blah blah BLAH! WOW how could someone be more fake?! She knew becuase of the Christian vote that I would flip at merge so she tried her best to get rid of me. I, however simply put her on blast at TC and revealed her disloyalty to me and others and that she was clearly a huge threat to win the game if she made it to the end.

I then spoke with Naomi (skyped) and told her I was no longer Ky and she had my vote for whoever she wanted to go. She could see I was sincere in my anger with Rudez alone. Also, she informed me that it was Rudez in fact that was targeting me and not Co at all. All the votes I got that round were from the Ky tribe alone (I’m pretty sure) so yeah.. I was offered up like a sacrificial lamb. I also stated in TC that if Co wanted numbers and someone who would be loyal that it would be smart to keep me. So they did. 🙂

flashforward and now Naomi was blinded sided and I thought for sure I would be gone soon. That somehow Rudez had gotten to everyone and I would certainly be next. But low and behold everyone in the game is talking to me still and everyone seems to want Rudez out. Rudez and Brian gave me an idol to “save” me – but really just trying to get me to flip back to Ky, which was never going to happen. I said I would vote with them then and I didn’t. In fact all this time I had been spending carefully making relationships with Marcelo, Sergui, Efe, and the four of us banded together to finally take out Brian. We decided at 7 a F4 was perfect to be sure we had the numbers to get to the end of this game.

My relationship with individual players has done me well. So well in fact that I also have a F3 with Marcelo and Efe, & a F2 with all three of them of which only one I intend to keep. It is the riskiest probably, however Serg and I have become very close. No one seems to have caught on to this alliance we have within this other F4 alliance. It was my suggestion Serg be the 4th when Efe and Marcelo asked me for an F4. This alliance we call the “Silent Killers”.

The F3 we call “F3 the ultra Silent Killers shhhhhhhhh” ( yes the shhhhh is part of the name ) and this has given me the opportunity to know what marcelo and Efe are planning and relay it back to Serg. Serg is also talking to everyone individually so we both share the information we get and relay it back to one another.

Now Jeremy has been the last voted out thus far. It was a huge blindside. I didn’t like having to lie to him but it’s just part of the game.

One thing is for sure, challenges don’t mean much if you cannot display loyalty to some degree. Everyone knows Rudez is playing so hard on many levels. Unfortunately she rubs people the wrong way, gets emotional when she thinks she is in control and things don’t go her way, and we all want her to go except perhaps Lyndsey who I might add hasn’t uttered one word to me this entire game. I tried at merge but she never responded. I know that she knows Rudez in R/L and therefore no one wants her in the game either.

So by so many fortunate circumstances and playing the Non-threat in challenges card – not entirely on purpose LOL – I have managed to make it to the Final 6 with the majority alliance and alliances within those alliances and yet another alliance no one has suspected with Sergui. If there is a tie in the final four between Marcelo and I – Marcelo will go as he has more votes. I know taking him to the end would be a no brainer but I cannot see doing this.

Without Serg and I having bonded together and sharing information since merge, I wouldn’t be where I am. The one person I thought would be gunning for me as I personally took him out of the first ORG game we ever played has ended up being an amazing ally and friend. I have no idea if all will go as planned but I’m completely shocked by this dynamic and love that you can go far with simple social skills alone.

My back isn’t up against the wall like in SCWL4 where I knew it was just a matter of time and tried every possible way I could to find a crack to severe the bond between Clayton and Jess and Andrew.

So now we really just want Rudez out of the game. If she manages to make it to the end, even I would give her my vote. The others pretty much agree so she cannot keep winning immunity. No one wants to sit next to her. Her social skills have not done her any favors though and her controlling nature is frankly obnoxious. She has lied to all of us and lashed out at all of us for lying to her. She has made desperate pleas and promises she never intended to keep to anyone except perhaps Brian.

If we can finally get her out I may have a shot at sitting in the finals. I may actually have a shot! Wtf?!

I’m humbled and surprised and so freaking happy!

I seriously NEVER expected this. I love the social dynamics in games. They really do impact the game and ultimately can get you farther than immunities & idols – which just put a target on yer back and/or label you a threat in the game.

I’m so glad I flipped at merge from my orginal Ky and grateful to have been able to have Naomi to help me integrate into the Co group. I wish I was more in tune with voting when she was taken out so I could have tried to save her. But I cannot change what’s transpired.

Things are looking good though.. so it seems. I can only hope everything is as it seems from my perspective.

More to come as we get down to the nitty gritty.

I can’t wait to see how all of this unfolds.

DQ

RUDEZ,

Confessional: So the plan now is to convince Lyndsay and others (cause Lyndsay is dictating votes) that Efe needs to go now… I know that it’s futile, but if I can convince Lyndsay that it is her obligation to vote out Efe soon, then I’ve done my job.

I needed to go into quite a bit of what I’ve been feeling to convince her.. and pretend to concede voting out DQ, but if that gets Serg into the final 4, I’ve done my job.

Also, I’m starting to believe that I can’t beat Lyndsay in a final 2.. meh..

SERGIU,

Ok..I need to start mailing confessiknals Cuz u re taking my power play position away haha

SOmeties i feel like ur favorizing rudez…hahaha…

But i know thats not true…its just she somehow always figures some way to screw me over…

and i bet she probably figured out how to approach most of the minigames to ear immunity again…blah

Brief Confessional #2… I have NO idea how the things just shifted but i think my name is in the clear for this TC and htats literary a miracle… lol

I meant to type Lyndsay…lol

Answer all questions and cast your votes by 7:00am eastern Monday.

EFE,

1. Three out of the six remaining players in this game are from SCWL 6. This is the first time where half of all players are from the same season. What do you make of that?

It proves that SCWL 6 was a tough season with great players. Maybe you should have invited more than 4 people from our season I am glad that we all made this far.

2. We are drawing very close to the Final Two. What are the best traits for a player to have to survive this vote?

First you must suck at challenges, you shouldn’t pose a threat and it would be really helpful If jury doesn’t like you at all. That’s the traits that will secure somebody one more round.

3. Is there anybody who sticks out as an obvious person to eliminate this round?

Are you asking me who am I voting? I don’t think I should reveal that There is not an obvious target this round and it makes it harder.

LYNDSAY,

1. What do you think the feelings are at the jury house right now?

Umm, that’s a good question. I really have no idea, but I like to think that they’re decent enough. I bet they’re all cheering for Rudez and her wonderful immunity streaks, but I don’t see too many of them being a super bitter jury.

2. Why would people vote you out this round?

Because I am a #challengegoddess? I don’t think there are too many good reasons to vote me out. I mean, I either have no relationship with the jury, or the ones who’re there really dislike me for betraying them. I’m not a threat to win any challenges, and I have a game full of regrets and mistakes. I mean, stranger things have happened, and people have been voted out for less, but I think there are far greater threats left in this game, and voting me out would kinda be a bit of a waste.

3. This was essentially a duel between Sergiu and Rudez. Do you think the other four of you were smart to let Sergiu and Rudez exhaust themselves with winning this challenge?

Exhaust themselves? I dunno if they ‘exhausted’ themselves, but I don’t regret my choice. I think I made a really good choice with not participating. I work 10-12 hours a day, 5 (sometimes more) days a week, and I honestly don’t have the time to spend 8-9 hours on a challenge, especially during the weekend. I mean, I WILL participate in them, but if I have the option to gain something from not participating, especially during a weekend where I have no free time, l take

MARCELO,

1. Rudez has been immune for nearly every Tribal Council since she used the Doubler. Is Rudez the most dangerous person remaining in this game?

She is because i have a feeling she will never lose in a challenge. Haha

2. Is there anybody left in this game who you think already has the majority of the jury in their pocket?

i dont think so

3. You continue to be quiet in challenges. Do you think you will continue to survive because of that?

i hope so, im not gonna win any challenges and this a fact. So keep me, pleaseee

RENEE,

1. After this round we will be down to five. Five! Do you have chills running down your spine that we are down to the freakin’ wire of this game? OMG 100% chills running down my spine!! and the back of my neck etc. I am still humbly surprised and feel like the dynamics of the game change so much that everyone is feeling excited and anxiety is rampant.

2a. How much do you think about who you take with you to face the jury at this point?

Take to Face the jury? As if I had that decision to actually “take” someone to face the jury with me. That in it’self would be amazing. But I think we are all thinking about it in the back of our minds with so few of us left.

2b. And how much do you think about who you need to help you survive in this game?

I think about that constantly. We need numbers most of all to survive right now. I’ve been loyal to the people I’ve promised to be loyal to and hope this proves I can be trusted moving forward. I’m certainly not able to move forward by winning a dang challenge! LOL

3. Does SCWL 6 alumni have three of six positions in this game worry you right now?

Or is that a non-factor in this game? I hadn’t even realized it was 3 from that season still in the game. Perhaps it is a factor?! I feel like the dynamics with people in this game have taken a life of there own. Every game is different even if there are crazy similarities like Andrew in my season and Rudez in this one going on immunity runs.

RUDEZ,

1. Has winning immunity been absolutely critical each round since Naomi was eliminated?

I want to say no, but Brian didn’t think so either and he got eliminated.. so anytime I can have the necklace around my neck, I feel much much better.

2. Would it make sense for players to keep you even if you did not hold immunity this round?

Oh, definitely! All my friends got voted out so I’m not a threat anymore.. there are definitely people out there who are running the game, and it’s not me. And if I can make it to the end of the game, there are a lot of people who are angry with me for not saving them when I could’ve.. so, I’d keep me around

3. This is new territory for you to make it this far. What is the most complicated part about making it to this stage of the game?

I’ve been here before, just not in SCWL.. the complicated part for me would to not be messing it up this time..

SERGIU,

1. A narrow defeat in today’s challenge. I know you spent a lot of time on it. How tough is it to lose a challenge that you worked so hard to try and win?

Its annoying… but not much u can do… this is just extreme bad timing with my uni and exams so i cant give it 100% in challenges but im trying the best i can giving the circumstances. I guess Rudez was better, once again haha. so congratz to her

2. What is the biggest obstacle for you in this game?

The crazy ass twists you keep coming up with, haha… but they are part of the game…so i have to adjust and work my way around them.

3. How do you think the jury views your style of gameplay?

Pfff… now thats a hard one…. idk. Its never how u think u did, its how they think u did and theres no way to know what’s in their heads. And i am pretty sure i got my share of angry people at me on the jury… so…i might not be viewed in the best light haha:)

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: Because he should not make it far enough to be declared a goddess.

Rudez has immunity yet again. You cannot vote for Rudez. Everybody else is fair game. Between now and 7:00am eastern Monday, it is time to vote. Spacko tribe, you’re up.

RUDEZ: I would like to clear up a very awkward misconception.. The jury is not full of people that have been betrayed by CO members.. Maybe Jeremy.. It is full of ky members that I either chose not to save with my idol or helped vote out (inadvertently or not).. So there are at least 3 votes out there that will never go my way.. Put DQ on the jury and whoever goes against me at the end has 4 votes already.. And that’s without even trying

EFE: Could you give the names? lol

RUDEZ: Uhm okay.. I didn’t save Aaron, and then I didn’t save Leif, then I voted for Lister, then I convinced Brian to vote Jeremy instead of DQ ultimately leading to him leaving, and when DQ leaves she’ll hate me enough not to vote me either.. There’s at least 4, maybe 5

RENEE: If you make it to the end Rudez you will have my vote and everyones vote

EFE: They would be stupid not to vote for you, it would be the biggest comeback in scwl history ever.

RUDEZ: Lol just like how you said you’d vote Jeremy.. I stick to my original premise DQ

RUDEZ: And it’s called a bitter jury.. There could’ve been 6 kys at the end.. There is only 1 left (DQ was kicked out a long time ago)

RENEE: This is about Jury votes and I’m telling you.. you would make a clean sweep Rudez if you were in the F2

RUDEZ: Lol tell that to the people who sent the disappointed and angry messages after I played the idol

RENEE: Look how Tony just won Survivor Rudez.. he played hard just as you have this entire game.

RUDEZ: Except Tony was with people who didn’t play the game at all.. You think I’ve been playing hard? Take a look around! You have some of the biggest gamers in SCWL history right here, right now!!

LYNDSAY: *fans self* this is getting heated….

RENEE: OK Rudez.. but none of us are on an immunity run. You are playing a great game. it’s a complement.

RUDEZ: I get that, but have any of you actually NEEDED immunity?? Cause I have.. Every single time.. Cause my strategy sucks..

If you can get to the end without needing an immunity run then you played a better game than me

RENEE: oh and I wasn’t kicked out of KY for the record.. I LEFT, Flipped at merge and then you tried to vote me out. so we are CLEAR.

RUDEZ: Lol.. Okay

RENEE: It was only because YOU flipped on our core alliance BEFORE merge. So loyalty was not coming from Ky I already knew.

RUDEZ: And I flipped on my core alliance on ky.. See people are ANGRY

VOTING,

EFE,

Vote: Lynsday
Reason: this vote is incredibly difficult for me but I have to do it. Hope you can forgive me. I just felt that its no longer you and me to the end…

LYNDSAY: Love!

RUDEZ: Lyndsay, you so cared about not turning on your friends.. You’re too good of a person for these guys..

LYNDSAY: Haha, it’s okay… I didn’t play the idol because I wanted to believe for once that I was a paranoid wreck, but I kinda suspected this…

RUDEZ: It’s a good thing you transferred it to me right?

RUDEZ: I would like to point out the new biggest threat now that Lyndsay has left.. that would be Efe.. currently he is sitting with the best game played.. good work Efe!

EFE: I am sorry lynds and rudez you are the reason for this vote. I will make some explanations later this night

RUDEZ: Oh good.. Lyndsay, I’m the reason you’re gone.. that’s another jury vote against me.. I’m starting to look like a great person to go to the end with

EFE: You will never be a person to go to the end with …

RUDEZ: And after this round, neither will you.. That makes me content

EFE: I still got a better chance than you

RUDEZ: Of winning.. I know right?

LYNDSAY: Hey, this is still my time to shine!

EFE: yeah Lynsday you are still my best mate in the cast and I love you the most! Sorry I did such a thing but I didn’t want to play with my emotions this time

LYNDSAY: Bitches, whoever gives me the greatest Fallen Comrades gets my vote in the end… Marcelo, please take the time to do this! I’m easily swayed by praise, and DQ, even though we never spoke, please don’t assume that I won’t vote for you. My vote is up in the air, and I want you all to work for it! So.. ya know, whenever the time comes, I want an epic Fallen Comrades! Even if Logan doesn’t ask for them, I expect a Fallen Comrades to at least be done for myself!

EDITOR’S NOTE: It’s called Rite of Passage. Fallen Comrades is the F4 challenge from Borneo, Australia, Africa, and Marquesas.

RUDEZ: Our cold hearted mastermind.. Voting out his best friend

EFE: Stoptrying to benefit from it

RUDEZ: I will scream the truth from the rooftops.. You just don’t like what you’re hearing

EFE: go ahead then

And the most unpredictable post-merge phase in SCWL history continues. If the rumours are true, you just made a very big move.

And let Lyndsay’s exit be a lesson–with only five players left after eliminating twenty players in three months, nobody will let you get a leg up on them in this game. Keep that in your head as we enter the last three Tribal Councils of this season.

7.175 Round 17 Blog

SUPER SECOND CHANCES

Yes. Another supersized challenge. Much like the style of tests that most schools used in North America decades ago, it would be near impossible to finish. It could not have been more overwhelming.

CO ALLIANCE DECIDES TO PLAY FAIR

Perhaps my biggest worry is that the others would start teaming up and take out Rudez in a challenge. However, I think even if they all teamed up that Rudez would probably still have beat them. Sergiu is the only person out of the other five who has ever won an individual immunity challenge. Rudez would need a troublemaker in the middle of South Africa to cut out all access to the Internet.

A CONFESSIONAL FROM ALL OF CO?

Yep. I’m surprised as you are.

SITTING OUT TO RECEIVE THE ROGUE IDOL MISSION THIS LATE?

This is definitely the biggest troll of a reward/twist I have ever done. Before the game began, I went back and forth between giving a final clue for the endgame twist to ensure someone absolutely knew what the twist would be or doing Friend or Foe.

I elected there would be a much more interesting way to do Friend or Foe in the pre-merge phase, but thought the pre-merge had more than enough twists for this season. It will perhaps be used in the future.

But I wanted something a bit more for this round. I knew by this point in the game that the rogue idol would be pretty much done. In past seasons, it was claimed long before this point. So I thought it would be funny to have the secret mission up for grabs, and see players realize that they need to do the impossible and rogue vote every round through to the Final Four.

I really have never intended to be that mean before. Many Co members took it in addition to Marcelo who already possesses the rogue idol mission.

For next season I will keep the rogue idol, but disregard the penalty that a player must take in the process. The current plan is to have players on each tribe needing to rogue vote three or four times before claiming the idol. The one season where you only had to rogue vote once or twice was too little, but this season being forced to take the penalty AND rogue vote three times was too much.

I am leaning more towards four to see how many times a player is willing to risk throwing their vote away.

Also, would you prefer to see two or three tribes for SCWL 8? I have been on the fence about that.

RUDEZ WINS IMMUNITY AND HER WORST NIGHTMARE

The Final Three twist is finally spelled out. If it was any of the other twenty-four players throughout the game, they probably would not mind it too much. But for Rudez at this point in the game? She could not be unhappier.

This is the point where I get to address something that has been an issue since the SCWL 6 episodes, and even came up in confessionals for this episode. . .

RUDEZ BIAS

Since SCWL 6 episodes started airing, I was accused by a couple of players for showing heavy favouritism to Rudez. After each round was uploaded they would say how inaccurate my portrayal of Rudez was, and once the season ended, I had one player say to me “I hope in All Stars you get what you want and Rudez wins”.

Really? I am designing the season for Rudez to win? Then why has she been in the absolute worst position since the merge and having her allies die one by one? And why oh why would I keep the twist I have been waiting nearly eight seasons to use–the immediate Tribal Council at Final Three.

All Stars was always meant to have a big endgame twist. This is how the process worked prior to the season:

Option a) Do a Final Three. It is the only time where a Final Three would work because All Stars is a gimmicky concept anyway. But what happens if there could have been a really interesting Final Two, and I screwed everything up by stopping the game too early.

Option b) Involve the jury with granting someone with immunity. I have seen it in other ORGs, but nah, involving the jury is just a bit too much. They already have the power to decide who freakin’ wins this game on day 39. That is good enough for them.

Option c) A Final Three Tribal Council without immunity. Survivor Guy 886 has used this in his series a couple of times since the real Survivor adopted the Final Three. He has used a few different day 39 twists to determine who is in the Final Two to stick up a middle finger to Jeff Probst, but this is favourite altered format.

I liked this idea because in past seasons everyone is always concerned with a player challenge whoring their way into the Final Two. Writers like Mario Lanza state that immunity challenges are not really part of the game, and are just there to shake things up for the audience. He argues it is always a social game at its core.

Players complain of losing out to an immunity run at the very end, or a player winning every challenge only to screw up final immunity. I thought it would be intriguing to see what would happen if a Final Three immunity challenge was taken away, and see what would go down. How good is your social game? Can you take the correct person to the Final Two when all three of you have an equal say in it?

Like all other twists for All Stars, this was decided before the game even began. Heck, this was probably the first twist locked in. I needed something big for the endgame, but nothing too ridiculous. This was the perfect balance, and is Survivor at its core.

If Rudez’s immunity run ends this round, and she is taken out as presumed, the Final Three scenario is set up to be very intriguing. If Rudez wins all the way to Final Three, she is in for a huge bummer.

With Rudez having this knowledge, can she use it to improve her position in this game?

I can tell you this right now: This twist has a HUGE impact on the remainder o this game. I will be discussing it two more times. By the end of the season, an argument could be made that it triggers one of the most talked about moments in SCWL history.

EVERYONE IS ALIGNED WITH EVERYBODY TO FINAL TWO, FINAL THREE, AND FINAL FOUR

It’s true. Just look at the confessionals. In the words of Sundra Oakley (and soon to be John Rocker but with a lot more cursing), it is their way of covering their bases.

LYNDSAY SUBMITS A CONFESSIONAL

And it is all about how she is confident that everyone believes they are aligned with her, and how there is no way she will be going home this round. Her hidden immunity idol is practically being left back at camp, and she is preparing to take out Renee. Renee will finally go.

NOT SO FAST

Marcelo has no intention of going for it. Rudez will vote with Lyndsay. We’re 2-2. For what feels like the tenth TC in a row, everything hinges on what Efe and Sergiu decide. Will Efe side with his SCWL 6 buddies to win this game, or can Sergiu help talk him out of it. If Sergiu convinces Efe to eliminate Lyndsay, Sergiu is as close to winning this game as any remaining player left.

LYNDSAY SUSPECTS HER OWN DOWNFALL, BUT DOESN’T PLAY IDOL!!

She said “it would be crazy if I was blindsided, I’m amazed they’re not thinking about it!”

The obvious move that Lyndsay thought should be made against her is what happens. If Lyndsay gave a bit more credit to her opponents, an idol would have been played. Who goes home in the re-vote though? Do we have a 2-2 tie? Does Renee flip? Does Efe flip? Does Marcelo flip? Do they just do whatever Sergiu tells them to do? That would have been an extremely compelling re-vote.

Lyndsay has held the idol for what feels like an eternity, and didn’t play it with only three votes to go. She could not make up her mind exactly how to player her idol until time was up. If I were Lyndsay, and Rudez was continuing on her immunity run unopposed, I would assume everyone thought that Rudez and Lyndsay just need to make it to five and they can win this game with a talisman and an idol alone.

Therefore, one would assume that they would want to oust Lyndsay at six as I predicted in the previous boot list. Oddly enough, that is exactly what happened. She learned a lesson that many other players waited too late to learn: Efe knows how to swiftly remove you from this game when you least expect it.

Only problem for someone like Efe now is that if Rudez wins another challenge she will have a very influential vote. If she feels you betrayed her buddy, just two people need to piggyback on that sentiment and take you out.

But if you can prevent Rudez from winning the challenge, then none of this will matter.

MARCELO AND RENEE TAUNT LYNDSAY ON THE WAY OUT

And we get our first intense exchange at Tribal Council. It stems from Marcelo and Renee playing fake idols. Marcelo played the fake idol for himself yet again. I am not sure if it was meant to directly taunt Lyndsay and Rudez.

Renee, however, played her first fake idol (with an amusing fake code) and played it on Lyndsay. A person who is about to be devastated by being blindsided with an idol in her pocket when she was one round away from standing a great chance of winning this game.

It shows you how close Marcelo and Renee are by this point. They have been doing this fake idol joke for quite some time. Renee’s play of using it on the person being voted out may have gone a bit too far. I will be stunned if Lyndsay remotely considers voting for Renee to win if Renee makes Final Two. This is how you lose a juror’s vote. Perhaps it is a grand scheme to improve her chances of making it to the Final Two, but Renee could have just made a mistake.

A BIG FIGHT THAT INVOLVES EVERYONE EXCEPT SERGIU

Look at the TC transcripts. Everyone is fighting over who might win, who went too far, who is a backstabber, who sucks, who doesn’t, and the only one not getting involved is Sergiu.

This is not only the only runner-up who has been brought back to play again, but also the guy who just needed one more vote to win. Sergiu has taken out both Jeremy and Lyndsay without taking an ounce of heat for it.

I thought this round was the big turning point where Sergiu would redeem himself with winning SCWL.

He just needs to somehow stop Rudez from winning immunity first.

7.176 Round 17 Boot List Prediction

5: RUDEZ
4: EFE
3: RENEE
2: MARCELO
1: SERGIU

7.177 Next Time on SCWL. . .

– With Lyndsay and her only hopes of being brought back into the fold now gone along with an idol, and the endgame intel pointing to an inevitable demise, Rudez is all alone.

– Since Efe eliminated his close SCWL 6 ally once again, Sergiu is on cruise control to operate as the Godfather in Spacko. Who will be at his mercy?

– But the game may shift as all five players receive a visit from a past winner. Four players go through a long mentoring session that shakes up the game. . .and one player is left on his own.

– After failing at virtually every immunity challenge this season, the outsiders are at risk as another Rudez win will certainly put them in danger as beating Rudez is more important than ever.

– The most infamous immunity challenge in SCWL history returns. Will history repeat itself as players crumble once again?

– And after an unprecedented four consecutive blindsides, a fifth blindside will stop one player from entering the Final Four.

Immunity Challenge XIX: Eric Bahen Memorial Challenge.

Winner: Rudez

Voted Out: Efe

Vote Count: 3-2 (Efe-Sergiu)

7.181 Previously on SCWL. . .

– For the first time ever, the players were set up to be duped by the latest twist as everyone was offered the chance to sit out in exchange for the rogue idol mission.

– But with so few rounds to go, anyone who took the offer, including Marcelo who took it despite already having the mission available to him, realized their error.

– But none of that truly mattered as Rudez once again won immunity. And with her closest ally Lyndsay holding a hidden immunity, they both were guaranteed safety.

– Lyndsay proclaimed the others would be crazy to not blindside her at this point given her great position in this game.

– And in one of the most poetic blindsides ever, Efe, Marcelo, Renee, and Sergiu proved they were not crazy and sent home the idol that Lyndsay possessed for the past dozen rounds.

– Now Rudez has absolutely no allies left. With no team twist nor anybody willing to save her, and a No Immunity round on the horizon, she appears to be finally drawing dead.

– Five are left; who will be voted out tonight?

MARCELO: Lol Yey And im gonna win this game or what?

MOON: I have no idea what we are supposed to do though.

MOON: I should probably check the group.

MOON: YOU BETTER! !!

MARCELO: I have no idea either

MARCELO: Where is this mentor thing in the group?

MOON: Oh on the main wall. I’m just supposed to give you advice.

MARCELO: S—

MOON: So…. what do I need to teach you?

MARCELO: How to win

MARCELO: Kimberly?

MOON: One sec, let me get to my store.

MARCELO: Come on. Where is this store?!

MOON: Near my house.

MARCELO: When are u mentoring me?

MOON: I’m hurr all day.

MARCELO: If i dont win its your fault

MOON: Smart ass.

MARCELO: Come on u are my mentor pall

MOON: Lol

MARCELO: Why did u choose me if u are not saying nothing haha

MARCELO: U just want camera time!!!!

****

RUDEZ: Oh hi Rob! Gimme your advice!

ROB: I’m on my way to work, but once I get there, we can talk.

RUDEZ: If I take a while to reply it’s cause I’m unpacking boxes.

ROB: Okie dokie

RUDEZ: 🙂

ROB: I’m ready for some mentoring when you are

RUDEZ: Haha what do you want to mentor me on?

ROB: First off, I’d live to congratulate you for making it this far

RUDEZ: Aw shucks thanks

ROB: Second, it’s nice to see challenge beast Rudez, she was kind of missing last season

RUDEZ: I was only around for like 3 individual immunities.. It always takes me time to own things

RUDEZ: But thank you

ROB: You were also competing against me, so I can understand why you weren’t winning as much

RUDEZ: Har har..

ROB: So what’s it like competing in this season, as opposed to last season?

RUDEZ: Hmmm.. The people are nicer and I had a stronger start so that was great.. Otherwise Efe is as infuriating as always and I still have no luck.. And still no one wants to work with me

ROB: Oh Efe.

ROB: Paranoid mess, but he’s a good dude.

RUDEZ: He’s playing a game to get to the end.. And if he goes to the end with one of our goats he wins.. And gets rewarded for his paranoia.. It drives me insane

ROB: Tell me about it. Having to rely on him last season for some of the big moves was torturous.

RUDEZ: At least he game through..

ROB: Thankfully. He was mainly just following whatever Lyndsay did. Once we voted her out, he was lost.

RUDEZ: Haha.. He did that for a while.. And then got some balls this time around

ROB: At least he’s stepped up his game. He was a real non-entity game-wise last season

ROB: (Had I not won SCWL6, I’d be on this season in his place, Logan informed me)

RUDEZ: It would’ve been nice to play with you.. But just you, without your sidekicks to back you up

ROB: Hey, it got the job done. I’m interested to see how I’d do without knowing anyone at the beginning. I’d for sure have a better social game because I’d have to.

ROB: (Not that I was ignoring everyone because I had my alliance to talk to)

ROB: but because I’d need to talk to everyone to secure an alliance

ROB: I still think I’d do well though, especially with challenges (I get really into them)

RUDEZ: Yeah.. It always disappointed me that you told Matt and DeAnna everything I said to you.. Kinda took away the personal part about talking to you

ROB: I didn’t tell them everything. A lot of talking to other people, personal-wise was completely genuine on my part.

RUDEZ: If you say so

ROB: 100% honest.

RUDEZ: So.. Give me advice.

RUDEZ: Mentor me into getting into the final 2

ROB: Obviously you’re killing the challenges. That’s good because it keeps you around, but it’s bad because once you lose one, you’re going to be public enemy #1

RUDEZ: I’ve been public enemy #1 for a very very long time. Since about the 3rd round of the merge.

ROB: What are your personal relationships like with everyone left? That’s going to play a huge part in whether or not you make the F2

RUDEZ: Can’t stand Efe, can’t stand DQ, Marcelo is wishy washy, and Serg is a disappointment cause I heard he makes big moves but has been to scared to.. All my friends are on the jury

ROB: Sounds like how I felt about most people last season.

ROB: How have your relationships been with people when they’ve gone to the jury?

RUDEZ: And I can’t just win my way into the final 2.. Apparently there’s no challenge at final 3.. So if I’m not fourth, I’m third.. That’s where it ends for me

ROB: Do you have any F2 deals with anyone?

RUDEZ: Hmmm.. I lied to a few of them.. And disappointed others.. And most of my allies got voted out cause of something I did..

RUDEZ: And nope.. My last F2 deal was with Lyndsay.. I should make one with Efe so he gets voted out next

ROB: Do you think you could win if you made it to F2?

RUDEZ: Depends on who I go with.. And how FTC goes

ROB: Who do you think you could win against?

ROB: Because that’s the person you make a F2 deal with.

ROB: Especially if it’s someone that won’t get to F2 without some help

RUDEZ: I don’t have the power here.. If anyone approaches me I’m in

RUDEZ: But no one thinks they can beat me.. Which is a shame

ROB: You’re going to have to make a deal with someone though, play up the fact that you’ve been public enemy #1 for a while, and that you’ve done a lot of people wrong on the jury

RUDEZ: I am.. I’m also doing my best to be annoying.. If people remember me as annoying, they’ll think I’m less likable to the jury

ROB: That’ll work

RUDEZ: I hear a lot about what’s going on on the jury.. And everything I hear I amplify a little bit

ROB: If there’s no challenge at F3, you’re definitely going to need someone that will keep you around (if you make it that far)

RUDEZ: Yeah.. I could mess up next challenge.. But I’m working on making myself less appealing.. We’ll see

RUDEZ: Cause honestly my game wasn’t really that great anyways, so it won’t be that hard

ROB: So you’re doing well at challenges, but your social game is lacking?

RUDEZ: My social game was great.. So I need to ruin it..

RUDEZ: I made bad decisions that impacted the game negatively for me and my allies..

ROB: Oh ok

RUDEZ: Yeah you got the dud to mentor.. Not much I can do at the moment

ROB: There’s always something you can do.

RUDEZ: But not much.. I can’t lose a challenge.. So I was thinking of playing it up that I needed so much help immunity wise.. And that someone who gets to the end without needing immunity played a better game

ROB: Definitely. I’d also find someone to align with to make sure they take you to F2 with them. If you’re sneaky enough about it, you might be able to convince more than one person into a F2 deal to save your ass from a couple different angles

ROB: You need to have a solid F2 plan, you can’t just rely on everyone thinking you’re not a jury threat.

RUDEZ: I’m working on that.. Just trying to be more subtle about it

ROB: Good, just make sure you’re not too late with it or people will realize it’s out of desperation

RUDEZ: Okay I’ll keep that in mind..

RUDEZ: Gotta pack again so will take longer to reply

ROB: That’s a big reason why I didn’t talk to too many other people near the end of the game. I didn’t want people to think I was talking to them out of desperation and only using them for their vote

ROB: (Which I was…lol)

RUDEZ: The only person I don’t talk to is DQ.. And on the jury, I only speak to the people who I bonded with on a personal level

ROB: So that leaves Efe, Marcelo, Sergiu

RUDEZ: Yeah I suppose

RUDEZ: Not the greatest bunch to choose from

ROB: Do you think Efe would beat you in F2?

RUDEZ: I’m not sure..

ROB: Has he done enough to warrant a win?

RUDEZ: I suppose he got rid of 2 really big threats.. And is calling the shots now

ROB: I just can’t believe that he’s in that much power.

RUDEZ: Well it seems DQ listens to whatever he says.. So if anything needs to change, the others have to band together.. And I’m not sure they can see that

ROB: Can you get Marcelo and Sergiu on your side in order to get rid of them? Since Efe/DQ are what seems like a solid 2, if DQ is following him.

ROB: Get rid of those threats now, and you, Marcelo, & Sergiu can go to F3

RUDEZ: I can try.. But Marcelo might be trickier than I can hope for

ROB: Its worth a shot.

RUDEZ: We’ll see.. No one likes giving me any power haha..

ROB: They’d be in power with you, they must want to have whatever power they can get.

ROB: especially if Efe is in control.

RUDEZ: Yeah.. Just need to sell the idea that Efe and DQ are a pair

ROB: He’s also likeable, so he might just get votes for that in the end.

RUDEZ: Yeah I know.. I’ve already decided I won’t vote for him.. But that’s just from where I’m sitting, he was nice to everyone else

ROB: So you should definitely try working with those two to get out DQ/Efe. Work the likeablilty angle and them being a solid 2.

RUDEZ: Cool.. I’ll give it a go

ROB: At this point, you need the numbers to ensure safety in the following rounds. Immunity is fleeting.

RUDEZ: Yeah.. I am working on it.. I’m just not in a lovely position

ROB: I think if anyone can work it out, it’s you.

ROB: Just be open to what they want to do and make them think things are their idea.

ROB: I think if anyone can work it out, it’s you.

ROB: Just be open to what they want to do and make them think things are their idea.

ROB: but push your ideas on them enough to make it a suggestion that they’re likely to go with, and not make them think you’re trying to be in control

RUDEZ: Yeah I’ll given it a go

ROB: When you give people power that aren’t in power, you end up gaining their trust.

RUDEZ: I’m going to dinner and a show now so I won’t be around for the rest of our mentoring session.. Feel free to send me thoughts though.. And thank you!

ROB: No problem.

ROB: Also, just so you know, I’ve also decided I’m not relinquishing my crown from SCWL6. The winner of this season gets a coupon good for one crown @ Party City.

SERGIU: Micheeeele

What’s up? Lol please tell me its a twist that involves voting rudez out…lop

MICHELLE: Hi Sergiu 🙂

MICHELLE: It is a chat to see how you are going to make it to the end…strategy etc…..

MICHELLE: 5 past winners are paired with you guys

SERGIU: I read the post 🙂

SERGIU: Heeey u beat me our seasons so I’m ready to take some advice haha

MICHELLE: Have you got a good alliance… Are you going to get to the end?

SERGIU: Yes… 🙂 u know strategy wise I am fine

SERGIU: Just twisted with logans twists and rudez immunity rub

MICHELLE: Talk friendly with everyone right now…. I mean I know you are but you want those votes

SERGIU: I know… but thing is people will gun forme…and I have to lie…

MICHELLE: I mean , just to get to this point us great.

MICHELLE: Is

MICHELLE: I know…. Just do it in a nice roundabout way

MICHELLE: And in the questions at the end , answer directly…. Ppl like that. And vote for you even if they didn’t like what you did

SERGIU: If I make it to the end it will be my 3rd time in a row

MICHELLE: But you made second last time do I don’t think there us much I can teach you

SERGIU: Ok… that’s what screwed me our season haha

MICHELLE: Then it is your end game you have to change

SERGIU: I know…. Hopefully I’ll have the chance

MICHELLE: See if there is anything similar between the last two…. How you answered questions

MICHELLE: Work from that

SERGIU: I’ll be home soon…tall then

MICHELLE: I really hope you get there

MICHELLE: And win it

SERGIU: That’s my issue… i over explain and it seems like I am making excuses

MICHELLE: Yes… Don’t do that

MICHELLE: Straight to the point is better

SERGIU: Thats what ill do provided i make the end:)

SERGIU: And if everything turns like i planed, i should be fine

MICHELLE: I really hope so

SERGIU: Goosh, i finally wan to win… it would be the 3rd time in a row i make it to the end… that has to prove something…lol

MICHELLE: Of course it does. It means you’re a player to be reckoned with

SERGIU: Even tho i didnt screw any1 over up to now.. and i played quite socially… i will have to screw people now…haha and this tc will be firece…

MICHELLE: It’s like old times…. Us chatting again

SERGIU: ye… i sorta missed this

SERGIU: have to thank logan for the twist

SERGIU: First one i am acually enjoying lol

MICHELLE: Were you with Jeremy?

SERGIU: Ye… and deja vu… i voted him out

MICHELLE: Oh dear

MICHELLE: You’re not getting his vote

SERGIU: well it wasnt me directly, but i could have saved him only if i damaged my game… and i wasnt in his endgame plans so…

SERGIU:He was playing me and i caught him… i think he would still vote for me… hopefully

MICHELLE: Well he could at that

SERGIU: Listen…i do need ur opinion on something

SERGIU: Just let me find logan’s message

SERGIU: This is one of two parts from a critical info of the game…

SERGIU: “If you win every challenge for the remainder of the game, it does not guarantee you a spot in the Final Two.”

SERGIU: I took this as a round with no immunity cuz logan directly told me that he is not making f3’s

MICHELLE: yes…it sounds like no immunity

MICHELLE: but then why have a challenge?

SERGIU: Idk…maybe an advantage in the alst immunity challenge like it was our season

MICHELLE: unless he is having a final 4…but that’s ridiculous

SERGIU: f4 no way… but maybe a f3… but i asked him and he said he never did and never will

MICHELLE: an advantage…such as blocking a vote?

MICHELLE: well do you beiieve him? because that line led me directly to think of a final 3

SERGIU: Me too… but its only a part of the critica info… which means i MUST beat rudez in the next immunity challenge

SERGIU: Im guessing he will make a immunity with past eason

MICHELLE: what do you mean?

SERGIU: I think the next challenge might be with questions about past seasons

SERGIU: No i mean advantage in a challengem u know we had the chance to sit out at f4 challenge so we get an advantage at final immunity challenge

MICHELLE: Oh Yes The end is riddled with mine fields

SERGIU: If rudez makes it to the end she might win… and i have to beat her…

MICHELLE: Who do you think you can win against?

SERGIU: Anyone else haha

MICHELLE: Lol Well she had to go, but would anyone else vote with you?

SERGIU: I think i would have it hard against Efe,… but marcelo and DQ i should be fine

SERGIU: ye… every1 wants rudez out..

SERGIU: And i trust u with all this info… hope u keep it for urself haha

MICHELLE: Of course

SERGIU: would be awesome if i win this season 🙂

MICHELLE: I only want you or Renee to win

MICHELLE: It would

SERGIU: We wanna go to f2 together

MICHELLE: The pinnacle

SERGIU: she is my secret alliance…. No1! knows we are close

MICHELLE: That’s great

SERGIU: Yup… and we get info from every side

MICHELLE: I was in an alliance with her once… We won the award for best alliance with Karla and omg I forgot

EDITOR’S NOTE: Remember that Facebook Survivor ORG I played where I overcame Michelle’s Witches Alliance and Sergiu’s alliance, and outlasted Renee too who got idoled out? Good times.

SERGIU: Iknooow

MICHELLE: Raquel

EDITOR’S NOTE: It’s like they don’t even remember I was in that game.

SERGIU: its the season she blindsided me and i am using that to make it seem like i want her out

MICHELLE: That’s was bad for a minute

SERGIU: Iknow

SERGIU: But u played great…

SERGIU: the witches alliance

MICHELLE: No, I wasn’t on the ball

MICHELLE: I hate tribe switches

SERGIU: Ye… but u were a witch too werent u?

MICHELLE: Yes

MICHELLE: We began that right at the beginning

***TEN MINUTES LATER***

MICHELLE: Yes we can lol I thought we were in a game or something. I am in Ky’s game ATM and we have merged so I am new to talking to everyone haha… Only the last two games have I. It talked across tribes

MICHELLE: Only because they said we weren’t allowed

SERGIU: Oh.. i see

SERGIU: That means ur getting lots of new ppl to know

MICHELLE: Yes, but there was a tribe switch as well so it is a bit of a mess

SERGIU: when i write ur i wanna write you are…lol sorry

MICHELLE: Throws alliances into disarray

MICHELLE: I have to go and of an immunity challenge. I think I’m first up for individual immunity. It would be nice if I won one ONCE! Lol

MICHELLE: But I’m up against some tough competition

SERGIU: Haha..know the feeling… beating rudez wil be hard

MICHELLE: It has been nice chatting again. Good luck in this vote and hopefully I will ttyl

EDITOR’S NOTE: There will be more to this conversation which will be airing in the final episode. Sorry, Sergiu.

EFE: Hey

EFE: So whats this mentor thing

EFE: Tell me how can we make rudez to give away immunity haha

DAVID: This is exciting! How may I help?

EFE: I don’t know

EFE: actually we were supposed to vote rudez

EFE: but she won

EFE: now we have to vote one of our own

EFE:Rudez was plotting against me saying that I am a jury threat and everyone should vote for me

EFE: but I don’t think they will

EFE: pros for serg he is good at challenges and he may beat rudez but he has good terms with everybody and he is a jury threat

EFE: marcelo has no chance of wining and he is close with me

EFE:he also has past votes so at f4 If sth goes wrong he is an easy target

DAVID: Is there anyone you doubt will vote rudez next round, or everyone is solid with getting her out next?

EFE: reene is the possible candidate she also doen’t have a big chance of wining and I don’t know if she will take me to end

EFE: everyone will be good with rudez

EFE: If she doenst win

DAVID: In the event rudez does win final four immunity, final three is probably a live Skype challenge. . Might be smart to take into consideration anyone with a slow internet connection now, before you’re stuck with them at three if they have no chance of beating rudez on skype

EFE: also there is a possiblity there may not be immunity challenge at f3

EFE: I can def beat marcelo and reene in challenges

DAVID: Yeah?! Like Logan having a final three instead of two? I guarantee you that wont happen lol. Logan has promised never ever to use the f3 format

DAVID: He hates it

EFE: haha I know but we have a info like wining every challenge won’t guarantee you final 2

DAVID: Well from the little info i have it sounds like you need Sergiu to beat Rudez, and if Marcelo is loyal to you AND has more past votes than you then he’s a great choice to bring as well, especially since Rudez is gunning for you.

DAVID: In my Season the votes were locked at final 4, because the same situation happened. The person we wanted out won F4 immunity so we had to turn on each other. It ended up being tied 2-2 and the person with most past votes left.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Poor Michael.

EFE: Yeah you are right

DAVID: Hmm. What are you thinking, jury gets to vote out who comes in third like kodis games?

EFE: Hmm maybe

EFE: But that would be ridiculous

DAVID: Yeah it doesn’t sound like a logan twist

EFE: I will hope for a non immunity round

CLAYTON: Okay Renee. Let us get down to business.

RENEE: Ok then

RENEE: Just getting my coffee

CLAYTON: So… Give me your plan for how you are getting to the finals AND winning.

RENEE: So apparently my name is coming up

RENEE: Serg and I are sharing info and no one knows we are close

RENEE: Last night we decided efe has to go

RENEE: Marcelo has more votes than me so in a tie he will go

RENEE: He’s said efe and Rudez want me but he can change her mind

RENEE: Marcelo doesn’t even need to know technically

CLAYTON: Okay. So Marcelo’s is a goat from what I have gathered. Nobody likes his ass. And efe has been described to me as playing a Kass-like game. Idk the accuracy of that of course

RENEE: Yup

CLAYTON: So you obviously need to get past this round… I obviously don’t know the super inner workings so I assume u know how to get urself out of this sticky situation haha

RENEE: Sergio is the only one who has my back and he and I have the best shot at bearing Rudez in a challenge

CLAYTON: Okay see that makes some sense

RENEE: Yeah

CLAYTON: Other than Sergiu beating you down in final tribal

RENEE: Efe unfortunately has to go

RENEE: True bit we’ve been playing together since merge and made it this fat with no one knowing

RENEE: Far*

CLAYTON: I get that. But why play the game to get to the end with ur buddy and lose when another route could win you the game? This isn’t REAL survivor… So your not getting more money and airtime each placement you move forward. Play to win or don’t play at all.

CLAYTON: With that said I think efe is a smart choice for u to get out this round

RENEE: But you think Marcelo in the finals?

CLAYTON: If that happens… Use Sergiu and his power to take out Rudez if possible. Then go to final 3 with Sergiu and Marcelo. Marcelo will take you cause Sergiu is more blatantly threateing. Sergiu may take u cause he knows he can beat u and u have been his confidant. And if you win that final challenge…. Take Marcelo

RENEE: Oh boy Wow Ok

CLAYTON: Then comes how you sell yourself. Problem going with Sergiu is that you worked together you say. So it then boils down to who was perceived better while doing so. And from what I have gathered… That would be him.

RENEE: We both played major roles

RENEE: I have f2 deals with all three boys and he’s Ben talking to Rudez

RENEE: I also have an f3 with Marcelo and efe

CLAYTON: Okay so once efe is gone you are the most appealing person for Marcelo to go to the end with right?

RENEE: Yes

CLAYTON: Then that’s ur path. F4 of u, Sergiu, Rudez, and Marcelo. Rudez is the clear threat and it’s easy to argue a coalition to take her out. That rally’s a final 3 of u, Marcelo, and Sergiu to form. (This is all assuming Sergiu isn’t in final cahoots with Rudez and is pulling what he did last time… Which will lose him the game yet again)

RENEE: True that

CLAYTON: So- if you can get to the end with Marcelo… What is ur arguement?

RENEE: No one believes they can beat her at the end

RENEE: He’s such a goat omg

RENEE: He has no argument at all we have all carried him here

CLAYTON: So win the final challenge and take Sergiu out and be able to put a stamp on that as your definitive move to try and win. If the jury is perceiving both u and Marcelo as any type of goat… You push yourself up

RENEE: Yeah He will be pissed!

CLAYTON: Yes. But at least u made a play to win it. And didn’t pull a woo and take the person that would beat you

RENEE: True Ok

CLAYTON: If you do get there with Sergiu cause he wins immunity… What is ur argument? And what is the story you will pitch

RENEE: well I am the total underdog

RENEE: I ,ade on my social skills alone

RENEE: And had deals with everyone

RENEE: except rudez

CLAYTON: What did u do independent of Sergiu? (Post merge)

RENEE: I was in the core alliance in Ky and flipped at merge becuase rudez was disloyal

RENEE: my game has been 100% social

RENEE: I didn’t even know Naomi was getting voted out or I would have tried to save her

RENEE: I really made an effort in that last challenge when everyone gave up

CLAYTON: K. Well riding solely on the “social” argument is dangerous if they even slightly feel like u weren’t the most likeable person in the game. U need to have something to fall back on. So just try and figure out what that something is.

RENEE: sergio played the same game I did… he didn’t win challenges either

CLAYTON: Exactly. If u really did play the same game… It comes down to perception. And Sergiu is better perceived. He was a runner up his last season. Nearly won it. Lost but still played a great game. And is all around liked by pretty much everybody

RENEE: very true

CLAYTON: Also- bring Marcelo I’m on the plan to take out efe. If Marcelo is really with u then he will vote with u. If Sergiu is really with u he will vote with u. Thats 3 out of 5.

CLAYTON: So as long as everything you perceive to be true is indeed true… Then you are safe. If something goes awry then you were never gonna be in a good position and win anyways.

RENEE: exactly

CLAYTON: Sorta testing your alliance out… Like back when I tested my alliance loyalty back in SCWL4 by pushing hard on the Angie vote to see if they were willing to go for it or had ulterior motives. I would say its time for you to do that with Marcelo and serg haha

RENEE: yup

7.182B Round 18 Confessionals

EFE,

Confession: Rudez won again :(((( and now it’s gonna be a hard tribal. I don’t want to vote Marcelo that’s for sure because he will take me to the finals. I am not sure about Reene because she is getting along well with Marcelo so that might be threatening. Serg is the biggest threat in the game after Rudez but I think he will def. get me to f2 but I don’t know If I would prefer that.

Confession: I think I will vote serg but still I am so undecided, If I keep serg I am not sure If I can beat him at ftc but marcelo is the one who has least chance of wining. If ı take serg and rudez win immunity next round mercelo will be gone because of his past votes so this trible I will cast my vote considering who I want to sit next to in the finals

SERGIU,

Logan

Lynds went out now… and i am absolutly sure she had the idol… but what stops her from sharing the code with rudez now?..

ME: “If the person who originally found a hidden immunity idol is voted out, that idol becomes dead and can no longer be used.”

Confessional #x Soooo, after Jeremy left I found myself in a bad position, however I got closer and closer to Renee . That girl sure is a blast, not the most amazing player but a great person. At the immunity I knew it was essencial that I beat rudez, but her winning ended up being a good thing for my game.

At first I thought my name would get trown around a lot and that I might be going home…. But that wasn’t the case. Rudez knowing she would never get picked by anyone else expet me to go to the end, made a deal with me so she def wont be coming for me.

Then Marcelo and I got closer and Efe thinks he is my closest ally. Lyndsay leaving was the best move I could have made and im so glad it worked cuz now,

Even if Rudez wins immunity, Efe leaves, and then at 4 im guessing a no immunity round where I can take rudez out, or if there is still immunity and rudez wins.. Marcelo leaves… and then finally the no immunity round HAS to appear at f3 where DQ and me pick each other to go to the end. …

Dear Lord, since I don’t get lucky in my lovelife, bless me with the luck and ability to make this happen haha

Well the critical info mentioned a round with no immunity, wheater its the one at f4 or the one at f3, there should only be one remaning challenge exept this one… and that is what im relying on….lol

Or a f3… but u NEVER do that… and said it to me point blank

Logan.. as a respected host, do u lie to your contestants?

ME: Nope.

Ok.. then there is no f3… and its a f2… and there really will be no final immunity challenge… thats how i got it… and im counting on it…LOL

Also finally a twist i love … congratz on ur idea of bringing past winners for advice… not sure how the others are doing but i loved chating with M<3 again

Vote: Efe

Reason… if this works… I’m guaranteed f3… please let it work…

P.s. sorry m8

MARCLEO,

Btw i had the worst mentor ever logan

I wanted david!

RENEE,

i was at a denny’s and falling asleep while ordering my food

thats how tired I am

I have to trell you I was up till 8 am trying to figure it out and still can’t do it

Rudez I’m certain will have it all figured out

RUDEZ,

Confessional:

OMG seriously!! LOL.. really?? Something else that has gone incredibly incredibly wrong!!!

My chances of getting to the end have almost officially dropped to 0%… so I’m most like here for 2 more rounds cause of challenges, so I might as well enjoy it..

I’m not sure who I dislike more at this point in the game.. Efe or DQ.. and if there’s a final 2 between them, I will most likely fake my own death to avoid giving either of them a win.. although, I’d vote for Efe, he sucks, but you have to give credit where credit is due!

Right now I have nothing to lose.. so I’m going all out.. Going to make myself as annoying as possible and unlikable as possible so maybe someone out there will think, no one will vote for that bitch..

Also trying my best to put down my own game.. which I’m not too impressed with anyways, so shouldn’t be too difficult!

Confessional:

I hate my position in the game.. it’s so tough to break the idea that I’m public enemy number 1.. even to the people who are already on the jury.

I am in Survivor the way I am in real life.. you threaten my friend and I will get in between and put the target on myself.. but being so hated in a game is rough..

I still feel as if every move I took was needed. People are pissed that I was so aggressive, but there was no way I was getting to the end with Brian any other way.

It just sucks that someone like Efe had to do nothing the entire game to stay alive cause he was on a tribe with numbers, and he’d beat me cause he didn’t make any enemies..

I may not be good at winning the game of Survivor, but I’m entertaining to watch lose

7.183 Round 18 Immunity Challenge

Viewers getting your first look at the new Spacko tribe. . .Lyndsay voted out at the last Tribal Council. We are down to five.

Marcelo has now improved upon his finish from SCWL 2.
If Efe does not end up as the 5th place g.oddess at the end of this round, he will also be the next player to improve upon his performance from last season.

Rudez, for the fifth time since the merge, I will take it back. Immunity is once again back up for grabs.

Today we are going to play a challenge that has a very unique place in SCWL history.

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE XIX: ERIC BAHEN MEMORIAL CHALLENGE

This is the only challenge in SCWL history where nobody won individual immunity. In the seven seasons played before All Stars, it is to this day the only time where immunity was up for grabs but nobody scored a single point.

Here’s what happened: It was the Final Four of SCWL 3. Kim, Eric, “Stephanie”, and “Jonas” were in the Final Four. Kim and Eric were the only two players left who had a chance of winning, and they were also the only two left capable of winning challenges. Kim was in the dominant alliance on her way to victory, and Eric appeared to be on an immunity run that would have caused a huge upset and lead to him winning the game.

Knowing the lack of participation from “Stephanie” and “Jonas”, I set up a tutorial for all four to do well before the challenge began. Eric was the only one to do the tutorial, and Kim’s fate was taken out of her hands as a major work assignment rendered her unavailable for the duration of the challenge.

It was clear Eric was going to win the challenge and cause the upset, but suddenly vanished hours before the deadline. Meanwhile, “Stephanie” and “Jonas” both sent in answers that did not score them a single point, and because Kim was in a hurry from being out at work, she was stuck with whatever answers they gathered.

Therefore, nobody had successfully scored a point, and because Eric’s account was deactivated without explanation, he was eliminated in 4th place, and we moved on to the Final Immunity Challenge.

Eric would re-appear online a week later saying that his mother grounded him for racking up the Internet bill on her mobile phone from the past 50 days of playing SCWL 3. He would disappear again and has not been seen online ever since.

Nearly two years later, and it is time to finally crown a winner of this challenge.

You will convert numbers in an equation to letters. You will then use the letters to form tribe names from the 28 seasons of Survivor (U.S. version).

At the bottom are six equation sets. You will choose only one to use for this challenge.

e.g.

EQUATION SET ‪#‎EXAMPLE‬

LETTER #1: 1?2?3?4?5
LETTER #2: 45?2?11?2?16?3?4
LETTER #3: 8?12?3?2?5?8
LETTER #4: 9?3?2?7?72?40
LETTER #5: 6?9?4?0?2?5?8
LETTER #6: 12?4?6?9?12?4
LETTER #7: 100?20?0?111?2
LETTER #8: 30?8?2?4?7?17

Replace the question marks with either addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. Do the equation from left to right, and completely ignore BEDMAS/PEDMAS.

e.g.

LETTER #1: 1+2*3-4*5 = 25

That number equals its corresponding letter in the alphabet.

LETTER #1: 1+2*3-4*5 = 25 = Y because it is the 25th letter in the alphabet.

If you get a higher number than 26, you would simply subtract it by a multiple of 26 to get your letter.

1 = A
2 = B
.
.
.
26 = Z
27 = A
.
.
.
52 = Z
53 = A

You would then go to LETTER #2 and repeat the process until you have created a tribe name. Obviously, each of your tribe names can only have a maximum of eight letters.

e.g.

LETTER #1: 1?2?3?4?5 = Y
LETTER #2: 45?2?11?2?16?3?4 = O
LETTER #3: 8?12?3?2?5?8 = U
LETTER #4: 9?3?2?7?72?40 = R
LETTER #5: 6?9?4?0?2?5?8 = M
LETTER #6: 12?4?6?9?12?4 = A
LETTER #7: 100?20?0?111?2 = M
LETTER #8: 30?8?2?4?7?17 = A

Once you have a tribe name, you will then create the next tribe name using the same equation set.

If you are creating a tribe name that is less than eight letters, you cannot choose which letters in the equation set you can use.

e.g.

If you form a tribe name that is four letters, you can only use the first four letters.

LETTER #1: 1?2?3?4?5 = G
LETTER #2: 45?2?11?2?16?3?4 = O
LETTER #3: 8?12?3?2?5?8 = T
LETTER #4: 9?3?2?7?72?40 = A
LETTER #5: 6?9?4?0?2?5?8
LETTER #6: 12?4?6?9?12?4
LETTER #7: 100?20?0?111?2
LETTER #8: 30?8?2?4?7?17

This goes for five letter tribe names where you can use only the first five letters in the equation set. The first six letters for tribes that are six letters, and of course the first seven letters for tribes that are seven letters.

Remember, you can only use one equation set for the challenge. So if you submit answers for one equation set halfway through the challenge, but then change your mind and want to use a different one instead, then all of the tribe names you found with the first equation set will be removed.

The equation sets are below You have until 11:59pm eastern Wednesday to complete this challenge. Remember to show how you managed to get each letter for all of the tribe names that you form.

EQUATION SET #1

LETTER #1: 11?33?3?7?9?12

TIEBREAKER #1: Guess which equation set the person(s) you tied with chose to use.
TIEBREAKER #2: Pick five numbers. Lowest non-duplicated number wins.

The person who creates the most tribe names with one equation set receives individual immunity and a guaranteed spot in the All Star Final Four. Losers head to Tribal Council where somebody will become the greatest 5th place g.oddess of alll tiiiiime.

P.S. Yes, you can use tribe names that are two words but combine to be eight letters or less (La Flor, Enil Edam, etc.)

The challenge and all tiebreakers due via private message by 11:59pm eastern Wednesday.

7.184 Round 18 Tribal Council

TRIBAL COUNCIL #19

(EFE)-(MARCELO)-(RENEE)-(*RUDEZ*)-(SERGIU)
XXX
(GLORIA)-(EAMON)-(MORAY)-(SHERI)-(JESSICA)-(KJ)-(JASON)-(DAVE)-(HEERAL)-(FIONA)-(CAMERON)-(CHRISTIAN)-(AARON)-(LEIF)-(MICHAEL)-(LISTER)-(NAOMI)-
(BRIAN)-(JEREMY)-(LYNDSAY)

You must answer your questions and vote by 3:00pm eastern Friday.

EFE,

1. Let’s get this out of the way first–Rudez won immunity yet again. This challenge it wasn’t even close. Any chance that Rudez will be stopped in a challenge in the future?

I don’t know, why she can’t lose. I miss Matt and Robb, they were beating Rudez at the challenges
I don’t think any of us can stop her right now. She is awesome in challenges. I admire her.

2. Last season, you suffered from being the fifth place goddess. Do you feel confident enough that you can avoid this fate tonight?

Although I liked the title supreme 5th place goddess I would be really disappointed If they vote me this round. I should never be comfortable because in last tribals people were def. blindsided.

3. Why should Marcelo, Renee, and Sergiu keep you in this game?

They should keep me because I am not a challenge threat or a social threat. We are getting closer to the end and you have to move forward with people that you can count on.

4. How was the mentor session for you with David?

It was nice talking with smo outside the game, he gave me some advice and ideas. I have no idea why he chose me I guess I was the last remaining one

SERGIU: Ok I got no questions so u cannot vote for me either

EFE: haha

ME: Heh, questions are in there now.

MARCELO: Rude.

MARCELO,

1. Rudez has been the obvious outsider for three rounds now. Is the strategy to vote someone out who is too weak in challenges against Rudez in hopes it increases your chances of beating her, or do you just have to keep playing your own individual game?

i dont know how to answer this question.

2. Last round this tribe blindsided Lyndsay. Do you think that all idols are out of the game due to Lyndsay’s blindside?

idk. Rudez said she has one idol.

3. Why should Efe, Renee, and Sergiu keep you in this game?

because i cant win challenges

4. How was the mentor session for you with Moon?

horrible. She didnt say s—. She is working. Wtf. We are org players not real people!!

RENEE,

1. You have played in seventeen post-merge immunity challenges in SCWL. This is the first time I have seen you finish as high as second place. Do you think you are finally coming into your own in challenges?

Let’s see, Rudez had 55 tribe names so I really feel like it’s just really none that remain spare Rudez, have that much time on there hands to accomplish what she can. So If I had come anywhere near that maybe I would feel better about coming in second in this challenge

2. What do you think is the mindset of the jury at the moment? Will it be impossible to cater to all eight members of the jury, or do you think they will share a universal criteria for their vote?

I think most will probably agree on who the favorite is in an F2 simply because so much of our strategic moves or lack there of have not been really within the jury’s view. I’m sure most will go with what they know.

3. Why should Efe, Marcelo, and Sergiu keep you in this game? we have all made it this far together, why stop now?

I’m almost certain I’m not a favorite to win

4. How was the mentor session for you with Clayton?

Fantastic.. gave me some great advice and loved this little twist just to get some perspective as well

RUDEZ,

1. Did you expect you would go on an immunity run like this when you entered the merge?

Not at all.. last time Matt and Rob owned me and I knew that SCWL challenges weren’t for me.. but I won and then kept winning when all my challenge competition was eliminated. It literally looks like whoever comes second in a challenge is a threat now.. but the threats should no longer be challenge, there’s one left.. the threats now are the strategic and social ones.. 2 things I’ve sorely lacked in this game

2. Do you think the other players in this game are voting people out based on your presence in this game, or do you think they ignore how you factor into this game?

I think I’m pretty much a non-entity in the game now. I have absolutely no say in the votes and barely anyone takes the time to talk to me. I’m still a vote for someone, but that’s worked out so well for me in the past.

3. How did the renovations work out for you?

They worked out well thank you! My place is looking stunning and I can’t wait to move in (no internet there at the moment).. Exhausted from unpacking all day!

4. How was the mentor session for you with Rob?

It was pretty good. We mainly bitched about season 6 and he is happy to see that I’m doing better in challenges this time.. He couldn’t help me very much unfortunately, he implied that even if I did get to the end, my social game might bite me in the ass.. but he was very encouraging

SERGIU,

1. The tribal camp has been very quiet since the merge. Is there just a hesitancy to have information out in the open?

Nah… i just think many of us are busy with real life stuff… My best friend just gratuated highschoo, i got exams coming…

2. What advice do you think the other mentors are giving to your opponents in this game?

Not sure… i guess it depends on everyones past games and with which they won.

3. Why should Efe, Marcelo, and Renee keep you in this game?

I guess there are pros and conts for every1… i got mine and its up to people to decide weather they put enfaccy on the pros or on the conts. I guess im loyal to those who are loyal to me, i am def not the biggest jury threat and i pissed off more than half of the people who will be voting for a winner…

4. How was the mentor session for you with Michelle?

I missed chating with Michelle… idk about other palyers but i felt great having her as my mentor… she is a great player and person and i enjoyed our talk. 1st twist u do that i enjoy…haha

When you vote, please do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (13-15-7-1-14 haha I’m hilarious)
REASON: Ugh. How are you still in this game?! I have voted for you like 150 times now. Why won’t you go home? And how am I still here for missing out on so many elimination votes?! Alright, fine. You get to be the super 5th place goddess. You get your wish.

Alright. You cannot vote for Rudez. Everybody else is fair game. Between now and 3:00pm eastern Friday, it is time to vote. Spacko tribe, you’re up.

RENEE: Fantastic game Efe ❤ btw

The lesson for today. . .once you become a g.oddess, you’re always a g.oddess.

But in all seriousness, congratulations on making it to the Final Four.

For half of you. . .welcome to the season finale.
For the other half. . .welcome back.

After making it all this way, you certainly do not want to throw away the huge opportunity before you.

Here is all that remains:

Four all-stars, three Tribal Councils, two twists, and one Survivor.

In a game that has been unpredictable at every turn possible, I cannot wait to see how the climax of this game plays out.

7.185 Round 18 Blog

ERIC BAHEN MEMORIAL CHALLENGE

Yep, this challenge was being saved up as the penultimate immunity challenge for SCWL: All Stars. We have ran over 100 immunity challenges in SCWL history, and this is the only one to not run through to completion.

SCWL 3 was remembered for a lot of bad things, but the Eric Bahen moment is simultaneously the biggest and most disappointing highlight of SCWL 3. Moon is sick of me telling this story.

We’re at the Final Four. We went through two quitters and an ejection. A tribe that was super duper quiet and booted the new (but most active) players pre-merge. Moon has been running the table as the competition was eliminated at the start of the merge, and perhaps the three most inactive players ever made it to the top five.

Eric is at the bottom, but wins immunity.

Jeric suddenly becomes active for the first time since the beginning, but is eliminated after Stephanie plays an idol.

Our Final Four is now “Stephanie” and “Jonas” who have been accused as fakes and have been very quiet since day one, Moon who has been slaughtering everyone, and Eric who is capable of doing well in challenges.

He is the heavy favourite to win the endurance challenge and this math-related F4 challenge.

The challenge begins and everyone has no idea what to do except Eric. Eric reports that he is about to send in his answer. . .then his account vanishes. Gone. No trace of him. We wait a day or so, and he does not come back.

Furthermore, everyone else either did not submit or did not understand the challenge to the point everyone scored zero points.

The challenge was declared a no contest, Eric was removed from the game, and we headed to the Final Immunity Challenge where Moon won and easily claimed the jury vote 8-1.

I will get to Moon’s mentoring session in a minute, but combine the events of SCWL 3 with how well Sheri and KJ did returning to this season, and you will understand how truly cursed that season is.

Come to think of it, Jeric’s account is the only one still active out of the top five from that season.

So it was only fitting for the only incomplete “impossible” challenge to be used as the penultimate one.

RUDEZ WINS ANYWAY AND DEEMS IT NOT IMPOSSIBLE

Of course, nearly everyone completes this challenge, and proves it was far from being the toughest SCWL challenge to be assigned. Rudez wins regardless of the 4 vs. 1 handicap. She is now a valuable vote for TC.

There is some interference prior to this challenge taking place.

MENTOR SESSIONS

The one twist everyone truly liked. Beforehand, the winners of SCWL 2-6 (never heard back from Mervin at the start of the season) each picked one of the remaining five to mentor. Knowing the twist I had planned for the finale, I thought a lighter one would do good.

And knowing the winners for my games, I thought this twist could work reasonably well. We would have legitimate chats where players did not fear of the information being exploited by the winners.

The outcome was incredible. Everyone was given the advice that they truly needed.

David warned Efe about possible F4 complications, and use it to his advantage.

Clayton told Renee that her current path to the end with Sergius is not good enough. She needs to do more than just the social game (which Lyndsay would not agree with that existing). She needs to set herself apart strategically.

Rob told Rudez that he was the best because he is the only one capable of beating her in challenges. . .oh, and that there is always a way to save yourself no matter how dire your situation may be. Don’t look desperate to be helped.

Michelle perhaps gave the best advice to Sergiu stating to not make excuses at FTC. Also, bringing Marcelo and Renee to the end will ensure his victory. Just get out Efe and Rudez in the next two rounds.

And in true SCWL 3 fashion, Marcelo receives zero help from Moon. Marcelo has been on his own since the beginning and this continues to hold true. He can never seem to find someone who can directly help him as a partner at any point during the season.

These mentor sessions bring up something very interesting for this vote: If Rudez wins the challenge, Efe or Sergiu must go.

THE BATTLE OF CO SUPREMACY

We saw Lyndsay, Jeremy, Sergiu, and Efe run the Co and Spacko dynamics since the fourth round of the game. Eleven rounds later and we see Jeremy go in 7th, Lyndsay in 6th, and now only one can take Marcelo and Renee with them to the end.

Whoever earned their trust the most will be the one who is anxious to declare himself the All Star winner.

MARCELO AND RENEE SPLIT

But guess what? Marcelo trusts Efe more but Renee trusts Sergiu. It is a 2-2 vote. Guess who has the power now?

RUDEZ BACK IN CONTROL

This is incredible, really. In what universe would Rudez be the deciding factor at this point in the game? Usually the vote is already locked 3-1 and Rudez’s vote should not really matter.

But it does. She must now choose between Efe or Sergiu. One she trusted quite a bit in the past, and the other not as much. Who will go?

REVENGE COMES QUICK

She trusted Efe more, but that was past tense. The man responsible for splitting her and Lyndsay apart, and ruining F3 plans is taken out. One round later and Efe’s move backfires on him.

He could have taken out Renee last round, and possibly be in a much safer space. He would have been wedged between two pairs of players. Instead everyone distrusts him as well as finds him capable of winning at the end.

Efe becomes the only Super 5th place g.oddess of SCWL, which is probably the next best thing to winning.

EFE OVERALL PLAYED A GREAT GAME

Efe may have seen the exact same results this season, but I think all of us can agree he played much better than in SCWL 6. It took a very long time for players to catch onto Efe’s game plan, and his whole thought process showed that he was in tune with this game.

I mean, he managed to blindside Lyndsay and Rudez in the previous vote. Efe would have been told he was dumb if Lyndsay was not voted out last round, and used her idol to get her and Rudez in the F4. From there Lyndsay and Rudez could have been the Final Two.

Efe knew he could not get Rudez to help him this round to eliminate Sergiu if she won immunity. He needed both Marcelo and Renee to help him.

Sadly one was still willing to protect Sergiu. Season over for Efe by the narrowest of margins.

Now we have the most random Final Four possible outside of Sheri making it here. We have Rudez whose super aggressive gameplay from the minority has kept her alive. Renee who may be the first othe than Kass to flip alone at merge and be kept alive to Final Four. Marcelo who was never in a consistent alliance as he ruined his own tribe with his leadership in the beginning. People peg Marcelo as the biggest goat. And Sergiu who came in as the person with the best previous finish, and is the clear favourite to win it all.

We have just one more immunity challenge to go. I want to see Rudez win the final challenge because I am very curious to see who she would protect in the vote.

But a Sergiu, Renee, and Marcelo F3 vote where none of them are immune is equally intriguing as well.

One person from the majority, one from the minority, and two independents are in the F4. This has been absolutely unpredictable, and cannot wait to see who wins.

7.186 Round 18 Boot List Prediction

4: RUDEZ
3: MARCELO
2: RENEE
1: SERGIU

7.187 Next Time on SCWL. . .

It’s finally here. After twenty-one players eliminated over the course of eighteen episodes, our two-part season finale to the biggest and most unpredictable season of SCWL is here!

– We have Marcelo–The Paranoid Knee-Jerker.

Since the beginning when he was a captain, Marcelo has made sudden and abrupt moves out of fear that he was potentially in danger.

But yet, enough players have trusted him at every turn, and are counting on him as a goat to keep him alive in this game. No one has taken him seriously all game. Will this paranoid spontaneous form of gameplay lead to an unthinkable victory?

– Rudez–The Intimidating Underdog.

She may have been in cruise control within her own tribe in the first half as captain, but a misread right before the merge put her in the minority.

However, her persistence with winning challenges, playing an idol for another player, and constantly calling people out has kept her alive in this game to everyone’s surprise.

She is supposed to be the biggest jury threat, but will she find an equal who will be up for going to the end with her and lead to an unthinkable underdog win? Or will this comeback be doomed to stop short?

– Renee–The Disaster Queen

She was in the minority of her original tribe, but once the cards were shown, she flipped to the other side at the merge.

Her performances in challenges are far below what they were in SCWL 4, and has been viewed as perhaps being the most inactive player since the start of the merge.

But the wheels are always turning as a mentor session from Clayton has given her new life. Much like Marcelo and Rudez, could we see the unthinkable happen with Renee where flipping alone allows her to sneak her way to the winner’s circle that she barely missed in SCWL 4?

– Sergiu–The Mastermind

While the other three were huge underdogs for the past several rounds, Sergiu is the one pulling most of the strings. All opponents have been terminated for his second season in a row.

He narrowly won his power struggle over Efe, and has a clear path to the end with three players who need him to get further in this game.

But will the runner-up from SCWL 5 be a runner-up once again as he misses out on the taste of victory? Or will the unthinkable happen with Sergiu as he goes from the highest ranked player entering this season and somehow improves on his past performance?

– And did you really think the blindsides were over? Watch as the most competitive endurance challenge in SCWL takes place, and everyone is blown away as past performances are put to shame in the biggest challenge of SCWL history.

– And the blindsides carry over to Tribal Council. In all eight seasons you may never see a blindside as big as this. Lyndsay, Cameron, Jeremy, and the majority Inukshuk alliance will have their blunder crowns removed as this is considered to trump them all.

– This paves way for the most uncertain Final Tribal Council in SCWL history. Not even the host could confidently predict a winner as the FTC unfolds.

All finalists are equally dangerous, and at least one is guaranteed to have their unbelievable story told as one of them will win SCWL 7: All Stars!

Immunity Challenge XX: Super Oath of Silence

Winner: Renee

Voted Out: Sergiu

Vote Count: 3-1 (Sergiu-Rudez)

7.191 Previously on SCWL. . .

– Just under three months ago, twenty-five of SCWL’s best players to never win the game were brought back for the most competitive season ever.

– There was work to be done right from the start as familiar pairings were created before the season would even begin.

– On Opening Day, everyone was shocked to hear that there would be six tribes of four, and MGI all in play. Each round three tribes would go to Tribal Council and vote one player out, and also dissolve the tribe that lost a member.

– Because of a pre-game alliance where three of his tribemates were allegedly together, Cameron turned against Glo at the first vote. Gloria was first out, and it was game on.

– Cameron wouldn’t stop there as a disqualification, and a mess in general, led to him claiming a hidden immunity idol.

– Rudez’s tribe of her, Brian, Renee, and Christian would dominate each of the first three rounds. They beat the other five tribes in each challenge, and were viewed as unstoppable.

– Cameron would later join them and save himself. But he refused to rest as he created a fake screencap involving Eamon. Eamon would pay the price, and headed to MGI as he won several duels to protect Sergiu.

– Moray was facing ejection, but was immune from TC again on Sergiu’s new tribe. Meanwhile Sheri was about to be ejected, but showed up at the last second to cast a fatal vote for Eamon.

– Marcelo suffered major fallout from the vote as he voted against his alliance members from SCWL 2, and instead voted with Jessica who appeared to be in control of the game. Marcelo’s role as a tribe captain was no longer respected by his tribe.

– The third round would see SCWL’s first unintentional triple elimination. Moray and Sheri were ejected at the challenge for inactivity, and every tribe except Ky would head to TC. Ow would go too because Marcelo sat out, but sabotaged his own tribe into disqualification.

– A SCWL 4 re-match would occur as Jessica or Heeral would be a captain eliminated from the game. Although Marcelo sided with Jessica, the majority got their way as Jessica would be eliminated. Efe, Aaron, and Fiona would be dissolved.

– Now that only three tribes remained, the players found out that no more tribes would be dissolved for a while. This led to three rounds of three-tribe play.

– Players were offered individual immunity in exchange for the greediest tribe being sent to TC.

– But only Marcelo was greedy, and he sent his own tribe to Tribal Council. Because he was immune, Dave, Leif, and Michael had no choice but to vote out KJ. Just like that SCWL 3 was extinct from All Stars.

– Ky lost their first challenge in round five when their attempt to team up with Ow failed, and Naomi from Co decided Ky would taste TC for the first time.

– But there was nothing to savour as Jason became too busy to handle All Stars, and was voted out in a bland 8-0 vote. Ky was still strong.

– In round six, a mutiny came. Dave organized a mutiny to join the Co tribe and leave Fiona in the dust.

– But his cell phone battery would die as Leif, Michael, and Captain Marcelo mutinied from his own tribe. Fiona and Dave were all alone on the disastrous Ow tribe.

– Lyndsay stepped up to help Sergiu win an immunity challenge. Sergiu was not only protected thanks to challenges, but also by his own tribal wins. Not only that but his tribe was up 10-7-2 in numbers.

– Fiona was doomed to go thanks to past votes, but Cameron gave his idol to Fiona. She was safe. Dave would go home by default as the other seventeen players were immune.

– A twist created the first tribe switch ever as the game would go down to two tribes. Naomi and Rudez became captains once again, but much remained the same as the only changes were Leif heading to Ky and Michael heading to MGI. Marcelo was the only one to remain on Co.

– Ky’s utopia minus Red would stay alive as Rudez and Renee were part of a peaceful environment.

– But it was anything but peaceful at Co as a core alliance of Sergiu, Jeremy, Lyndsay, and Efe were split on what to do. This resulted in a 3-3-2-0 tie between Marcelo and Heeral thanks to Sergiu’s social engagements.

– Sergiu would return, but could not stop Heeral from being voted out 4-3. The outsider Marcelo was saved.

– Both tribes played for two tribal immunities simultaneously, and won one apiece. Co would head to TC first where Fiona would visit her seventh of eight possible Tribal Council by this point. Her luck would run out, and was sent packing in a unanimous vote.

– But the utopia was gone as the Ky tribe blindsided Cameron out of the game. Only Christian was willing to protect him. An alliance of Lister, Brian, Rudez, Aaron, and Leif was formed. Renee was not included.

– Rudez and Lyndsay each found their own hidden immunity idol at Co and Ky respectively. They kept lines of communication open, and were on the verge of potentially taking over the game in the post-merge phase.

– But it was still the pre-merge phase. With tribes tied at seven members each, a crucial tribal immunity challenge would be played. Co would beat Ky after Ky made a small error. Ky would fall to the dreaded six members.

– Things got worse as Renee was angry that Christian was the target. She countered this by openly going after Brian. She did not get her way, and Christian would be the last casualty before the merge for the second time.

– Both tribes agreed to merge with thirteen and begin the jury phase of the game. With so many bonds in play, the field was filled with lots of uncertainty.

– Cameron won the final MGI duel, and gave Ky hope by providing Rudez with an individual immunity talisman.

– But that changed as Renee switched to Co to give them a 8-5 majority. Aaron and Leif would both go in back-to-back TCs.

– Hope found its way back into the trailing Ky tribe as Rudez would stun everybody with an immunity challenge performance, and won the Doubler. She could now save herself from the next four TCs.

– But she not only used an idol to save Brian which was activated, but gave Renee the immunity talisman in the new Tribal Council. Michael who lived on the fringe with Marcelo would become the third juror after being eliminated due to past votes for the second time in his career.

– Lister and Naomi were in opposing alliances, but Naomi thought about joining Lister’s Warrior alliance. This connection worried everybody else in the game. Lister would go first, and after a team twist where Naomi refused to use her Mutiny Trigger, she would go home too.

– It was down to eight as only Brian and Rudez were the only two of the five Warriors left. They called themselves the Mad Scientists all season long.

– But a 4-4 tie manipulated by Efe and Marcelo would eliminate Brian in the all too familiar eighth place position. Rudez was now all alone in this game.

– The team twist was over, and the game was now all about seven individuals. The core four of Co with Sergiu, Efe, Jeremy, and Lyndsay who still had an idol. The two outsiders Marcelo and Renee who are thought to be goats due to Renee’s inactivity and Marcelo’s antics, and the underdog Rudez.

– Rudez would win immunity, and the stage was set for a Core Co shootout. First, Lyndsay and Jeremy would battle each other. Everyone sided with Lyndsay, and Jeremy would go home in seventh.

– Rudez would win immunity again, and the next Core Co shootout would occur. The biggest blindside yet would go down as Lyndsay would be blindsided with an idol that had been glued to her pocket for nearly ten rounds of play. Marcelo would play a fake idol for the fifth time during the game, and Renee would taunt Lyndsay by playing a fake idol on her as her torch was snuffed.

– And yes, Rudez would win again. The most important twist thus far would go down as past winners chose one player to mentor each. Four out of five players would receive really good advice that would make them think about the end game.

– Because both felt they had very good connections with Marcelo and Renee, Sergiu and Efe decided that only one could be the last Core Co member standing. With Rudez’s threat level, and the two outsiders being weak in challenges and socially, whoever won this battle would be the winner of All Stars.

– Marcelo sided with Efe; Renee sided with Sergiu. Suddenly Rudez would have the most important vote of the game to date. She chose to side with the one who did not betray Lyndsay the most, and Efe would be the 5th place g.oddess again.

– Now only four remain. Sergiu is well on his way to victory, and Rudez is most certainly doomed if her immunity streak comes to an end. And after being labelled as goats all season long, could Renee or Marcelo prove everyone else wrong? This all-star season prepares for an epic conclusion.

7.192A Round 19 Jury House

EFE: My comment on people left in the game;

Rudez: She is a psycho and In SCWL 6 I thought she was a brilliant player but she is not. No brilliant player can play that alienating social game. Her game is absolutely dependent on immunity. She is horrible…

Sergui: Playing a decent game and he took the opportunity to take me out. He stepped up few rounds ago and he might have shot at winning. He is a super social threat.

DQ: I thought I had an f3 alliance with dq me and marcelo but she is influenced by the rumors and voted me out. She is playing an AWESOME game. You guys should really respect her game. She could end up like one of the Ky’s in the jury or Rudez but she clearly took another path and now she may go to the end. She is one of my favorites.

Marcelo: Marcelo was my buddy, I saved him so many times I guess. He is not playing a striking game but If he plays wise after this round he may get to end. He would have such a good story but he needs to step up.

***

JEREMY: So how many pregame alliances were there?

LYNDSAY: All I can say is that Cam/Efe/Rudez/me were all in a S6 one, but that is all I was ever part of, and honestly, I didn’t expect it to stick! Go and ask Cam how many pre-game alliance HE had!

NAOMI: Mine wasn’t a full on alliance but I had spoken to Cam about aligning.

I had the same deal with Heeral and Lister and that was we play our own games. If we can work together go for it but no deals were made so I didn’t really have any pre games haha

JEREMY: I didn’t have any. It’s also funny because I was secretly hoping that Sergiu would be voted out in one of those early tribal councils because I didn’t think we would be able to work together again.

LEIF: there was an s2 talk before the game even began but other than that I didn’t have anything pre-made. Plus my tribe sucked in the beginning lol but I’m glad I made it to merge!

MICHAEL: Yeah me and Marcelo tried to do a S2 alliance, but it obvi diddn’t work. Can talked to me too but I diddn’t trust him

LYNDSAY: Yeah, the whole ‘give Fiona an idol’ was so that Efe and I would have an ally on Co, because we suck and can’t make allies for ourselves… It’s because you were quiet. and I never went up and told Cam who I was aligned with because he was annoying me too much!

JEREMY: Lol yeah I think either you or efe told me that and that Cam saved Fiona so you guys could have an ally or something.

LYNDSAY: BTW, Jeremy, you were ‘risky’ to talk to….

NAOMI:  f—ed me over big time with that too taking out dave. I wanted him to stay so much haha

MICHAEL: Dave is awesome. I was trying to convince people to vote off can at the merge, but he went earlier. Awesome

BRIAN: Haha in my vote for cam i was like…this vote is for Dave Bronson!

***

LYNDSAY: DQ- borderline inactive, but will get carried to the end after doing nothing all game. I’m sad I left before her. I deem a useless goat.

Macrelo- At least he is more social than DQ, but he offers very little to anything. I deem a useless goat.

Rudez- God, somebody needs to give her a f—ing chill pill. I was her number one ally and she f—ed my game up at least 3 times that I can think of off the top of my head. Seriously, she was a horrible ally for half of the s— she did to ‘safe herseld, when it really just backfired and hurt her even more, but she was loyal in the end. She thinks she is playing an amazing game, but really, she’s just digging herself into a huge f—ing grave. Her aggressive nature was so hard to deal with.. omg, she made my game so much harder than it needed to be. She can win all the immunities she wants, that doesn’t mean she’s playing a good game. Sorry, Rudez! Immunities don’t good gameplay.

Sergiu- Great guy, great social game… great everything. He hasn’t played the most exciting game and is very UTR, but he’s beginning to emerge as a victor in my eyes. He orchestrated my vote-off, so I kinda have to respect him for growing some balls and making his own moves. Question is, is waiting till the F6 to make a move that wise? Kinda a little late in my books. I dunno, I would have liked to see bigger moves by him throughout the game as oppose to being a mindless goat, but he got me out, so kudos!

Efe- the ally that just f—ed me over because of his own paranoia. His paranoia was his downfall in S6, and it’s his likely downfall now. I mean, why the f— did he get rid of me? He THINKS I was 100% with Rudez, but even I don’t know who I was more loyal to. He flat out told me he was jealous that I was so close with Rudez, but… c’mon! We met in RL less than a week before this game! Rudez is legit one of my good friends IRL, so of course I talk to her more, but that doesn’t mean I was going to take her. I always separate RL from games when it comes down to it, and I proved this to him multiple times in the past! *shakes head* Anyway, he flat out said that he was just paranoid about us and that upsets me. He made a very poor choice by getting me out… I mean, Rudez will vote him out, and I seriously doubt Sergiu will be bringing him to the end of the game. I was too big of a threat, and by default, Efe is too. We played the exact same game and were a tight duo, so… IF he manages to get to the end, he’s a true winner because to me right now, his situation looks grim. I hope I am wrong though since he is a sweetie

Anyway, Sergiu saw Efe’s paranoia and used it to his advantage to manipulate him, so now I am here! I have a clear favourite to win, but I hope I am not too bias.

LYDNSAY: Guh, the part that gets to me MOST is that I suspected I was being voted out and didn’t play my idol! *cries* In my second last game to this I ended up feeling like my best ally was gunna vote me out but decided to stay loyal to them and just hope for the best… well, bitch cut me… very sad! Anyway, next game I was a cut-throat bitch and won, but people didn’t like me, so I decided that I would trust my friends again.. you know, one bad experience shouldn’t dictate how I play every future game, right? Oh no!!!! So, here I was.. up last night and was thinking how smart it would be for them all to blindside me right now… but no, I decided to just put my trust into my friends, CONVINCED that I would be in the wrong for not trusting them and look where that got me? yeah, I’m never being loyal again!!!

AARON: Well this is my first encounter with you and I have to say I am quite… perplexed

LYNDSAY: LOL, I knew I had no shot at winning this game because I don’t know any of you lovely Ky members. My own fault, but seriously… who has the time to constantly message like, 13+ people for THREE months? I could only deal with my own tribe, and then the merge came and I realized people had so many cross-tribal alliances and I went crazy and worked on getting everybody I had yet to talk to out! I’m not a bad person, I swear! Just… annoying, I guess?

JEREMY: I’m curious, why wouldn’t you just be honest with me? I was 100% with that final two deal. I felt like it was the best for both of us considering that we had the same s— social game.

JEREMY: Also DQ is playing a better game than you give her credit for.

LYNDSAY: To put it in the best of terms I guess it is because I didn’t believe you? Sure, looking back on it now it was a stupid mistake, but at the time I truly believed that Marcelo, Rudez and Efe would never betray me, so why would I go against them for somebody who I wasn’t 100% sure on? I dunno, I felt bad about it and looking back.. man, I was STUPID, but what can ya do? I just didn’t believe that you would seriously take me to the finals… I thought you were just looking for a quick way to survive the next vote and then you’d be done with me

JEREMY: Holy s—. Why would you not believe me? You were my first ally in this game and I did not told you a single lie the entire time. I literally trusted you with everything until i found out my idol was fake. Was i the only one that was committed to our 4 person alliance?

BRIAN: I think Marcelo is playing better than you give him credit for, and since Rudez is basically playing the same game I wanted to, almost, I can’t be too hard on her.

LYNDSAY: Marcelo is actually playing a good game, just not one I respect. He can win, so can DQ… if you get to the end, then you ARE deserving, no matter what. It’s just a matter of if I will vote for you, and I won’t vote for somebody like them, but that’s my personal opinion.

LYNDSAY: And I would say that your game is way better than Rudez, Brian… but that’s just my opinion.. Again, these are just MY opinions, and I don’t wanna force them on anyone… it just feels great to vent Personally, I don’t like the game Marcelo or DQ are playing.. I guess I can see the strategy behind it, but.. just.. no… I don’t like it, just like I don’t like people who get to the end solely on challenge skills. We all have s— we value in games/winners, and those are things I DON’T respect…

LYNDSAY: The thing with Rudez is that I tried SO hard to work with her but she kept betraying me… like, wtf? She wouldn’t tell me about her schemes, she’d go threatening people all the time, and she’d make moves that effected me without telling me. She purposely gave me wrong info about a challenge simply because she didn’t trust that I would keep her safe. I respect that she had a lot of strategies, but none of them really benefited her. She was the crazy unstable one this time around, and you latched onto her and would have out-shined her in a F2 because you didn’t make the stupid mistakes she did. That being said, I love her to death

JEREMY: Why do you think DQ and Marcelo will go with Serg and not Efe? DQ and Marcelo should realise that their only chance of winning is against each other. So they will want to take the least challenge capable person to the final 3. Which is Efe.

BRIAN: haha no matter what 2 make it I will want to see the FTC answers and you can’t blame Rudez for having all that immunity. She found the idol fairly, and convinced someone she blindsided to give her a talisman…

AARON: Yeah I was about to say I don’t think the twists are a point against Rudez really

JEREMY: I’m more bitter towards Logan about the twists. There were simply too many and imo it sullied the game. Why cast an all star season if you think you need an insane amount of twists to make it interesting.

***

BRIAN: Did I ever tell you I knew about the Ky idol from the first minute she had it lol

LISTER: You bastard

AARON: Lmao Lister I am dying right now

LISTER: Don’t you dare die. I need somebody to be mad at Brian with me 😛

BRIAN: um yeah, I got Lister’s letter and then Rudez found it while I was still chatting to him

LISTER: Motherf—er

AARON: I don’t even know who I can blame for me being voted out. Although Sergiu was always extremely shady so I’ll just be mad at him

BRIAN: You can blame me and Rudez for not playing the idol on you!

***

BRIAN: We banked on Co crumbling too much…and it was a shock for Ky to not have numbers…

JEREMY: Beating you guys in that challenge was my best moment of the game.

LYNDSAY: LOL, if I have to hear about Co not throwing that challenge one more time I’ll likely scream… Rudez was SO pissed Ky never had the numbers and blames everything on that

LYNDSAY: Her whole game was ‘ruined’ because we wouldn’t throw it for her… she still brings it up

JEREMY: Well she should have done better 😛

BRIAN: I didn’t think Co would have their act together

JEREMY: I was so happy when i got a perfect solution.

JEREMY: I probably would have flown to Canada to murder you Lyndsay if you had thrown that.

JEREMY: Speaking of challenges that should have been thrown. I’m annoyed that Sergiu and Efe didn’t throw that airline one at final 8.

LYNDSAY: I liked that challenge… the word one? The one where I think everybody got drunk?

***

JEREMY: Also why did you guys target me and not DQ? That seems like it was a huge mistake. the round that Brian left.

LYNDSAY: I PUSHED DQ!!!!!! Nobody would go with me.. I said efe might flip and cause a tie, nobody believed me… What happened? Efe flipped… guh, I was not mad that Eef flipped, I was just mad that nobody listened to me

BRIAN: I did at first, but for some unknown reason I thought DQ would vote with us…I never trusted Efe

BRIAN: For some reason Marcelo pushed against DQ

LYNDSAY: Yeah, I TOLD you DQ wouldn’t vote with us… The first thing Marcelo said after that vote is how we should have listened to me… i was so angry

7.192B Round 19 Confessionals

MARCELO,

NONE

RENEE,

NONE

RUDEZ,

Confessional:

Getting ready for the final challenge of this very very long season, and I’m so nervous!!! Naturally I feel as if I need to win the challenge to stay in it, but I’m more focused on DQ not winning.

I say this because both Sergiu and Marcelo have said they want to go to the end with me. I’m more inclined to believe Marcelo, as Sergiu is practically screaming ‘I have a final 2 with DQ’

So ideally, if Marcelo is with me, he wins immunity, or I win immunity and transfer it to him.. draw the votes onto me, and the two of us vote DQ..

There are a million ways that that could go wrong.. but I don’t believe Sergiu will go to the end with me, and I think that in this vote, he will lie about voting DQ and actually vote Marcelo.

So I’m nervous cause if I don’t win, there’s a possibility that I still don’t get to the end.. but if I do, I might have to give my necklace away and get voted out Cameron-style!

“The person who lasts the longest will win immunity and be safe from the vote. Guaranteed a spot in the Final Three.

And that is so important because they will plead their case to the jury as to why they should win this game. Then there will be a vote.”

I think this might be a twist I like

*cries*

not really.. but losing to DQ is embarrassing

What’s the procedure for a tie at final 4? Just incase I can convince SOMEONE to keep me..

Confessional:

I have a semblance of a plan.. maybe lol

It sucks that DQ won immunity, it was like, worse case scenario for me, so naturally I was expecting it to happen. Perhaps if I was more positive in this game, better things would happen..

So since I’ve been working on Sergiu for a long time, I spoke to him about voting Marcelo off cause he has more past votes than me.. and now Sergiu is using the fact that I told him that Marcelo asked for the necklace if I won immunity as an excuse to maybe want me out.

So with Sergiu’s wishy-washy-ness.. I need a new plan. So he mentioned when I wanted DQ out, that he’d just self-vote.. and now he’s wishing he could self-vote cause he thinks it’s more honourable (it’s not!)

So I was thinking I should approach Marcelo and the 2 of us vote for Sergiu.

Worst case scenario: Sergiu was always going to vote for me, 2-2 vote me and Sergiu and I leave.

Middle case scenario: Sergiu sticks by me and votes Marcelo. 2 votes Sergiu, 1 vote Marcelo, 1 vote me, Sergiu leaves and I feel shi–y for not trusting him

Best case scenario: Sergiu self votes like he wants to to avoid making a decision. 3 votes Sergiu, 1 vote me, Sergiu leaves

I feel like this would be my best option at this point in the game rather than having to rely Sergiu.. and if he’s gonna vote for me either way I leave, so might as well increase the odds a little bit

If somehow sergiu is getting voted out, can you extend the reveal time.. He has an exam, and I don’t want to ruin it if he is leaving.. If he’s not, then I suppose you can announce that I’m leaving sooner than thaT

Confessional:

I’m a horrible person.. a bitch.. evil..

I know Sergiu is voting me, and I’m doing everything I can to even just get him to self vote, including possibly crossing some lines

I’m bringing friendship into it, saying I won’t vote for Sergiu if he directly votes me out (which is such a lie), anything really to maybe get him to change his mind

I don’t think it will work, but I have to try.. right to the end

SERGIU,

SERGIU: I made it threw this tc…. I’m guaranteed f3!!!

MICHELLE: Yay Congrats

SERGIU: and if logans twist is true… I got F2

MICHELLE: Omg fantastic!

SERGIU: foxy style…I’ve been a fox this entire game haha

MICHELLE: do you just sing the song constantly

SERGIU: kinda haha

SERGIU: If I win Logan should put that as background song

MICHELLE: That would be gold!

SERGIU: I do think its finally time for me

Gooosh i Revieved votes…!!! in SCLW haha… this must have been a good feeling for u to finally menation my name on votes at TC that isnt ftc

Lesson learned

7.193 Round 19 Immunity Challenge

Final Immunity Challenge: Oath of Silence Results

So. Let’s finally get to some results.
.
.
.
First off, the players were informed that this is the final immunity challenge of the game.
.
.
.
Whoever wins will join two other people to face the jury. Three players will plead their case to the jury as to why they should win.
.
.
.
Then there is a vote.
.
.
.
.
Marcelo did this back on Saturday.
.
.
Sergiu and Rudez did this Tuesday.
.
.
.
.
And Renee finished this very recently.
.
.
.
.
Our fourth place finisher. . .
.
.
.
.
With 1 hour and 23 minutes and experiencing some lag, I would imagine. . .
.
.
.
Marcelo! He made it to eight second response time.
.
.
.
.
3rd place. . .
.
.
.
.
Lasting 3 hours and 52 minutes. . .
.
.
.
.
.
Sergiu! He more than doubled his winning time of 97 minutes in SCWL 5, but it wasn’t enough here in All Stars. Funny how that works.
.
.
.
Let’s give a hand for Sergiu lasting until quarter after two in the morning in his time zone.
.
.
.
.
Once again, either Renee or Rudez won this challenge. Rudez has won nearly every challenge since the merge. She even won a challenge in her brief post-merge stint in SCWL 6. Renee has never won any of her eighteen immunity challenges, has never entered the merge with the majority, and has lost every Opening Day challenge to date.
.
.
.
They finished within fifteen minutes of each other.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
And both made it to fake roll calls and three second response time. The same final section that Andrew made it to in SCWL 4.
.
.
.
.
.
Did Renee break her winless streak or will Rudez’s dominance continue as she intends to be an even bigger challenge beast than Andrew?
.
.
.
.
.
.
The winning time was. . .
.
.
.
.
4 hours. . .
.
.
.
.
And. . .
.
.
.
.
.
36 minutes later. . .
.
.
.
.
Rudez, you did not win.
.
.
.
For the first time out of the 25 or so talismans that have been handed out in her career, Renee finally scores her first win! And breaks Andrew’s record in the process.
.
.
.

20: Dave Bronson (20 minutes)
19: Jonas Guarnaschelli (25 minutes)
18: Jessica Nicole (30 minutes)

2: Andrew MacAskill (Won–267 minutes–3 second response time and fake roll calls)
1: Renee DQ Higley (Won–276 minutes–3 second response time and fake roll calls)

Awesome effort by everyone, even if I had to spend over nine hours total on this challenge.

Renee, you are immune from Tribal Council. You will improve upon your finish from SCWL 7. You are the first to be guaranteed the opportunity to plead your case to the jury before a vote. I doubt you are giving it up.

Rudez, Sergiu, and Marcelo, all three of you clearly wanted it, but it was not meant to be. One of you will be voted out of this game in fourth place, and become the tenth member of the jury. Should be interesting to figure out who it is going to be.

I will have Tribal Council posted before I head to bed tonight.

You must answer your questions and vote by 4:00am eastern Friday.

MARCELO,

1. What’s your reaction to finding out that this was the final immunity challenge of the season?

i was surprised.

2. Are there any predictions on what will happen with the three people who will face the jury?

there are many predictions. A lot of think there will be no challenge next round, and i agree. But there will be a twist. It wouldnt be fair for someone like ozzy(the last member of his alliance) to be a non immunity round. Its gonna be a twist!

3. Rudez appears to be the outsider for a long time in this game. With her losing immunity, is she guaranteed to go? Or is a tie vote possible?

everything is possible! But i hoping that there wont be a tie.

4. What would be your plea to the jury?

IDK. Lol, i dont think i deserve to win, but i would be devasted to be voted out in f4.

RENEE,

1. You made it to the Final Four last season. A crazy sequence of events put you out of this game. Here, you take matters into your own hands. . .and finally win a challenge. What is that feeling like knowing you cannot go home?

It feels like another crazy sequence of events! But I really wanted to play in this challenge more than anything last time! Now that I have played it and won the challenge, I feel like I earned my spot moving forward finally!

2. So far the only person here who has faced the jury is Sergiu. He was one vote away from winning. Does Sergiu become a bigger threat because you know that three people will be talking to the jury instead of two?

I feel like it’s up for grabs. I am sure we could all have a compelling argument to the jury. I wouldn’t have made it this far without Serg

3. You and Rudez both came from the Ky tribe. Marcelo and Sergiu have been Co members for most of this game. Could a tribal split possibly happen this vote?

I don’t think so.. it would be a huge shock if it did.

4. And what is the status of hidden immunity idols in this game?

I have no idea. I’m thinking there aren’t any in play at this point.

5. How much power do you truly have right now by winning immunity?

With all the twists and turns thus far in this game I have no idea. I am happy and humbled that I won it though, for sure.

RUDEZ,

1. You put a lot of effort into this challenge. . .but fall for a fake roll call. Minutes shy of victory. Have you been replaying that ever since?

Not at all, I did my best and lost and I always believe that if someone beats me, they deserve to beat me. I’m proud of lasting as long as I did, I was exhausted by the end of it!

2. Why should the other players keep you around for tonight’s vote?

This is a game of twists, and the person you want around for the twists is the one who doesn’t have any friends. We know there’s a plea to the jury in final 3, we also know it’s a final 2.. so if you needed me before, you still need me now, and visa versa

3. You are the only person with two pieces of information regarding the endgame twist. Are you confident as to what it will be?

Yes I am.. and I haven’t been shy to give away the information to those who asked, so they should be pretty confident too

4. Do you think the players are assessing how each individual will think and react as a jury member? For instance, how would Marcelo be a jury member versus the mindset of Sergiu as a jury member.

No, I think people are more assessing who they think they can beat without thinking about who is on the jury. People respect different games, and that’s what you need to look at.. not who you would vote for to win if you were on the jury

SERGIU,

1. You lasted less than two hours to win immunity in SCWL 5. Here, you doubled your time but were still forty minutes away. Does that speak to the true all-star competition which surrounds you?

I have always been aware of the fact that this is an allstars and not a regualr season. And it was constantly being reminded with all the twists adn serious competition and most important great players who didnt make it easy getting to this point.

2. You have had nearly a week since Efe was voted out. How does the game shift when you have such a long break?

I guess… i have been in my hometown so when i wasnt home studying for exams, i was out with friends… It passed by way to quickly for me..haha

3. We’ve discussed your position and Rudez’s position in this game. Now let’s discuss Marcelo’s. Do you think his inoffensive nature possibly give him a bigger advantage over you, Rudez, and Renee?

Ye… the thing about Marcelo is that he is likeable, he didnt piss people off and he was always behind the sceans of moves that were made. He never took direct damage and he has a good idea how to make a great case for himself. So he might have an edge faceing the jury.

4. Has your game plan changed because Renee won immunity?

It defenetly is a good thing for me that DQ won cuz like that she cant be voted out. And i know some were thinking about ways to atke her out…

5. How does three people facing the jury change the game for you?

Not that much… my case should be the same but it takes one less player who can bash me from the jury haha.

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

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: Because you dropped out after one minute. You may be the biggest genius of them all.

Okay. Renee has immunity. I highly doubt she will give it up. Everybody else is fair game. Between now and 4:00am eastern Friday, it is time to vote. Spacko tribe, you’re up.

SERGIU: I am sure u enjoyed that, Logan 🙂 Thx for the opportunity tho 😉

SCWL 0 — The final hidden immunity idol is played as the majority alliance since the beginning finally crumbles.
SCWL 2 — A deadlocked vote takes place as Noah flops his vote twenty-three times during the re-vote.
SCWL 3 — The player favoured to win vanishes completely.
SCWL 4 — Clayton plays an idol on Jessica, forcing Andrew to decide between Clayton and Renee. Takes Clayton with him not knowing Clayton gave that idol to Jessica in the first place.
SCWL 5– Jeremy intentionally throws the challenge and gets voted out unanimously.
SCWL 6 — Cameron wins immunity, gives it up, and is voted out ten seconds later.

And this F4 event may be the craziest of them all. Sergiu could not have been any closer to reaching the end of this game back-to-back. . .but for whatever reason, crumbled.

By the end of today, the three of you will officially be called upon to make your plea to the jury. Once you make your plea, there will be a vote.

No more challenges. This is all you from here on out. Congratulations to all three of you for improving upon your finishing position from your previous game.

7.195 Round 19 Blog

THE FINALE BEGINS

In my opinion, I thought Sergiu’s only obstacle standing in the way of his victory was if Rudez won individual immunity, and managed to vonvince the others to eliminate Sergiu, or be able to convince Sergiu to take her to the Final Two.

But first. . .we have a challenge that we need to play!

FINAL IMMUNITY CHALLENGE INSANITY

Oh my word. Scheduling all of the different meeting times for this final live immunity challenge proved to be a bit of a nightmare.

1. Rudez was in the middle of renovations/moving.
2. Renee was in the middle of moving.
3. Sergiu had plans of his own over the course of the weekend.
4. I had university graduation in the coming week, and would be heading to my brother’s which would freeze a full day of Internet access, and ultimately three days where my online time was minimal at best.
5. Marcelo was being. . .difficult. 😛
6. Everyone was from different time zones.
7. One live reward challenge.

There’s only the usual early mid-merge twist planned and how the post-merge idol will be hidden. No MGI or really anything else to wrinkle up the game. After All Stars, we need a more typical SCWL game to be played.

Yes, I know the subject everyone wants me to respond to, but we’re not quite there yet.

MARCELO’S OATH OF SILENCE

Yes, this is the tradition. The final immunity challenge was Oath of Silence. Sergiu has played this before and has won it before. I assumed this challenge was going to be between him and Rudez.

The only time Marcelo has won individual immunity in SCWL was during this game when he sent his own tribe to TC.

It was tough to get a grapple on Marcelo’s availability. When Marcelo’s challenge was scheduled, I found myself waiting nearly forty minutes. Then Marcelo signed on and needed a dinner break before we could begin. Frustrating situation back when it happened but it is funny looking back.

Anyways, Marcelo followed up Dave’s and Clayton’s experiences of lag, and was out after ninety minutes. A respectable time, but I had a feeling that would not be enough.

SERGIU AND RUDEZ’S MARATHON

Thankfully both competed in this challenge simultaneously. It started around eleven o’ clock in their time zone. The reason it started that late is because we waited a half hour for Renee. She was nowhere to be found for over a day. We knew it was the same time when she was moving, and proceeded on without her.

I now had to do three sessions of this challenge. -_-

Since Renee has plaed something like eighteen or nineteen individual immunity challenges in SCWL, and knowing how badly Sergiu and Rudez wanted to win, I was fully invested into this head-to-head matchup.

One hour goes by.

Two hours goes by.

Three hours goes by.

And then I looked at the clock wondering if Andrew’s record would be broken as neither Sergiu nor Rudez were showing signs of quitting.

Finally Sergiu went down, and in a hilarious twist, Rudez finished three minutes shy of Andrew’s record. I thought this would be enough.

RENEE’S EVEN LONGER MARATHON

Renee does the impossible. She showed up the next night and broke the record by more than fourteen minutes. Sergiu, Renee, Rudez, and Andrew know how tough the challenge is once you pass three hours. The fact Renee has the record by fourteen minutes is nothing short of incredible.

Rudez’s immunity streak is foiled by somebody who has never won before. This is worst case scenario for Rudez, and it should be lights out for her.

THE RENEE CONTROVERSIES

Yes, I waited to address this until after the Final Immunity Challenge.

For the past few seasons, players have been allowed to change their votes up until I send them the message of “Vote for ____ recorded”. This came into effect during SCWL 5. Therefore, pleayers could still be voting after the designated deadline if I was not yet available to be online.

It was a bit out of hand this season, and players thought that people who didn’t vote on time should be counted for a TC inactivity strike. Therefore, Renee would have been ejected if strikes were handed out for not voting before the deadline.

After this season the rule is being changed that all players must answer their TC question and whatever is their final vote sent before the voting deadline will be the one locked in. Obviously I could not randomly start enforcing this in the middle of All Stars.

This rule change will ensure players do not have to stay up all night, and gives everyone more rest in general.

The other was regarding Renee’s participation in the Final Immunity Challenge. I set up an ideal time for when I wanted this challenge to be done, but Renee missed the day when Sergiu and Rudez were slotted to do Oath of Silence. Everyone thought she should have been disqualified from the challenge right then and there.

I was a bit surprised this was even controversial because we have had other Oath of Silences be equally frustrating to schedule in the past. I waited nearly a week for “Stephanie” and “Jonas” to show up in SCWL 3. Mervin nearly forfeited the final immunity challenge if Marty managed to last longer than 100 minutes. The challenge is live and is treated differently from all other challenges. It is live, it is final, and will have the most impact on the game. Therefore everyone should have the chance to complete it.

In all other challenges, miss the deadline and you can’t win it. Here it is not the case too because my own availability comes into play. I also hate the idea of anything weird happening because I was impatient. Between this and the FTC (which had a similar situation in SCWL 4 where we waited for Andrew for over two weeks), this is the end of the game and needs to be played through to completion. Again, I could not really enforce Renee’s ejection from the challenge because it goes against what has been set in the past.

In short, will a strict TC voting deadline/question period be enforced as much as challenge deadlines? Yes.

Will anything change regarding how the FIC and FTC are handled? It would be tough to come up with a concrete rule.

WHAT ARE THE RULE CHANGES COMING UP FOR NEXT SEASON, BY THE WAY?

Oh, thanks. Glad I asked.

1. I will not decide whether the game starts with two or three tribes. That will be up to a winner of Opening Day.
2. If there is a mutiny, each tribe must have a minimum of four members.
3. Strict TC deadline.
4. A few more challenges that require you to be a bit more strategic rather than needing 20 hours of free time to do the best out of anyone.
5. First person to rogue vote three times will receive the hidden immunity idol for their tribe.
6. Yes, many of the twists brought back for All Stars will not be present for next season. They were brought back once more strictly as a celebration of the series.
7. No more than four early boots could potentially be brought back for next season. It could be zero, one, two, three, or four.
8. Lose the intro. People want more story. The way people view SCWL has changed. Hope that makes sense!

TRIBAL COUNCIL TIME

Is Rudez going home or is Rudez going home? Everyone is uneasy about what will happen next round due to no immunity challenge being around the corner.

RENEE SET ON VOTING FOR RUDEZ

Which means Sergiu and Marcelo will agree to vote for her. . .or would they?

MARCELO AVOIDING A DEADLOCK

There was an interesting scenario that all mentors discussed with the players in the previous round. If Rudez won this challenge, a 2-2 deadlock between Marcelo and either Sergiu or Renee would send Marcelo home.

Marcelo was aware of this and was speaking to Rudez quite a bit during the round. There was one plan where Rudez would win and GIVE Marcelo immunity. If that had happened and Rudez was voted out. . .yes, that would have been a jawdropper.

But neither Rudez nor Marcelo won. Neither are protected. Marcelo may very well have to vote Rudez. Rudez may very well have to vote Marcelo.

However, they do not cave in to these obvious scenarios. Both are determined to work together, and by default, they must vote Sergiu. We have a 2-1 vote on our hands so far. Obviously Sergiu would vote Rudez or take the guaranteed out by telling Renee to vote Marcelo, and then eliminate Rudez in the F3 non-immunity vote because she will have nowhere to hide.

SERGIU AND MARCELO HAVE DOUBTS

This was the Noah round. You have to go back to SCWL 2 F4 where Noah changed his vote 20, 000, 000 million times before eliminating Michael. Marcelo has been close to that record a couple times this season, but he vote changes five times between Sergiu and Rudez. What is the best path for him? How much can he trust Renee to save him at F3?

Then we have Sergiu. He rarely changes his vote. I think a lot of it had to do with wanting to secure jury votes at F2. Don’t be the bad guy when voting out Rudez and you are nearly guaranteed to win. The odd thing about this is that Sergiu is definitely going to win against Renee or Marcelo in the F2. He is closer to both of them than they are to each other. Renee has wanted to take Sergiu with her to the F2 for quite a while.

THEN THE IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENED

Sergiu self-votes. Renee votes for Rudez. Rudez and Marcelo vote Sergiu.

3-1 including a self-vote, Sergiu sets himself up for the biggest blunder ever in SCWL.

I call it a major blunder because Sergiu has played nearly forty perfect rounds of SCWL. His only mistake was losing one jury vote in SCWL 5 to Michelle. Everything else he did was outwitting, outplaying, and outlasting the other competitors.

Clearly, Marcelo and Rudez deserve A TON of props for pulling off this move. Perhaps this never happens if Rudez or Marcelo won immunity. Marcelo is looking to punch a F2 ticket to the end, and Rudez is just trying to buy herself more time to see if she can manipulate the F3 vote.

The favourite to win out of these four is out. The Core Co Four all went out in a row in 7th, 6th, 5th, and 4th. The two players they never took seriously, and the underdog Rudez are still in. There is a 2/3 chance that an original Ky member will win this game. And a 1/3 chance that the disastrous Ow tribe could win.

How did this happen?!

Sergiu joins a long line of great SCWL players who had one hiccup, and paid dearly for it.

I now have no clue how a Renee-Marcelo-Rudez F3 could go. I was intrigued, but now they have my curiosity.

7.201 SCWL 7 Confessionals

LOGAN’S JERK MOMENT OF THE SEASON

RUDEZ: What happened to fallen comrades

ME: We’re not having that challenge this season.

RUDEZ: That’s not a challenge

ME: It was played in Borneo, Australia, Africa, and Marquesas.

Rite of Passage, however, is when you remember all of the players that have been eliminated. In SCWL, it is always done right before the jury asks questions.

MARCELO,

plan b was great, right?

lol that was so fun

and serg vote him self out

that was big too, give me that logan

Come on logan

U want to play in the dark?

How do i know if i have to do a horrible speech to be pick? Or if i have to keep lying to the finalist

We need to know the end game so we dont make a stupid game bc u dont know bettwr

*stupid game move bc we dont know better

so… im gonna send a confessional explaining this crazy vote

First, i would like to say that my dream f2 is dq. Since the merge i want to go to the end with her, and i still do. So when she voted efe out, it was shocking bc it didnt make sense. With efe in the game, even if rudez had won f4 immunity efe would be gone, but with sergiu in the game, if rudez had won i would probably go. So it doesnt make sense, even bc i told dq that i was willing to vote efe out that vote. She didnt need to lie.

So, in my head there were only 2 possible reason for that: 1- she is dumb. or 2- she wants to go to the end with sergiu( which i didnt get bc i think i did a pretty good job underplaying my chances in the end).

When rudez beat serg, there were only one way out for me. I had to make rudez to give me her necklance. I think i did a pretty goof job with my arguments and i think she migh have given to me. But dq came from nowhere and won.

The moment after dq won immunity, she sent me a message: rudez is gonne. Then i asked serg if he was gonna vote for me or rudez and he said he DIDNT KNOW yet. WHAT??? Then he said he was lying about not trusting dq. That they were close all along and she told him about the f3(me, efe and her). As u can see, it was not the best day for sergiu, lol. He was puting his foot in his mouth a lot. then i talked with rudez and it was clear that serg was 50/50 on making a tie or voting her out(in case of the tie, im gone). so we decided to vote him out.

Then today,: he said I wont vote for u. I promissed. So im like, i guess i will change my vote bc if rudez is going i dont want to make people mad with this tie. And 10 minutes after he promissed me he said: NEVERMIND

WHAT?? WTF! Buddy… Its ok to lie in this game, lol. U dont need to say nevermind.

Then after that, dq talked to him and made him realize rudez had to go. So he made me promissed to vote for rudez. So it was clear he was self voting bc if he voted for rudez he wouldnt need my vote. And dq sent me a message right after this, sergiu is self voting. LOL

this people dont know when to shut up. So my plan worked. In the beggining it was probably gonna be a 2/2 and i would be done. But in the end, i managed to turn the game.

I was in the middle, and i was the one with the power to chose between rudez and sergiu. And i voted Sergiu( who was soooooo cocky this whole week like he had won this game already, saying he would consider saving me) bc in my head now dq would chose me to go to the end, and rudez too

One more think, when he made me promise to vote for rudez, i said so lets do this! F2??? and he said: Let’s wait for pleads and then make f2 deals

WHAT????? JUST LIEEEEE MAN.

finish. sorry for my english. i dont know if this was a good confessional lol. It is probably confuse, feel free to correct my grammar haha

Dammit!! Rudez is talking all the credit on the main group!! Lol

***

Rudez is such a looser!! Lol

I want to change what I said about Rudez. She is not a great player. She said she didnt respect the fact that I took someone less deserving(dq) to the finals. She said she would prefer to go to the end with someone who played a great game, so if she losses she wouldnt be mad. So thats the diference between us, and the reason that I already won 2 games and might win this one(only playing 4 orgs) and she will never will win. I would never be happy to be beaten. I came to win, not to get second place and be happy for the deserving winner who beat me. Its survivor 101. And if you think I coasted to the end, you are stupidy. I know you think you played this amazing game, but in fact you had 0,0% to be taken to the end, you would never won this game. And stop blaming the twist for you not making it, because we all knew about it and you wouldnt have survived final 4 if there was no twist

I hate lister too, lol. This guys are realy something else, lol. I bet he had the most confessionals this season, and he DIDNT DO S— lol. Give me a break.

And wtf is wrong with lyndsay. She thinks was coasting but then decides to make moves… WTF, lol. What moves did she do, and im sure i made way more moves than her(like voting her out- efe was second guessing this move, and I said that we should do it)

I am really not geting these people

I hope u give the credit that i deserve logan

RENEE,

I letterally haven’t eaten and am still working.. I haven’t even showered LOL

Literally*

Ican’t believe it still

btw

so blown away

no matter what happens I’m am happy.. and owe you another confessional to boot

Thanks for letting me play again

RUDEZ,

Confessional:

This may very well be the last confessional of the game. I was pretty sure that this is what the twist would be, but I couldn’t help but hope that the jury would be voting too.

I implore you Logan to think about your twists in the future. These twists are designed to ensure that the people who played the least get to the end of the game. Especially the one where you had us plea to the jury. Like look at the game of anyone who goes into the merge with no numbers. Every single time it’s been a Pagonging. So if you do manage to have someone who is the underdog, they need to rely on immunities. Taking away the final immunity challenge ensures that the underdog can’t win their way into the final. Now you have everyone plea to the jury. This allows people to reveal what they did in the game, ensuring that the person who did the most does not get to the end of the game.

Now, I’m lucky I’ve pissed off so many people, because that might be my only card into the finals. Most of the twists in your game have made my game almost impossible, and it really really really sucked to have been a part of that.. cause Survivor is difficult enough as it is.

Saying all that, the choice tonight is Marcelo’s.. the guy who never tried in an immunity challenge (which may be the most annoying part for someone like me who put 100% effort into every challenge). We have an alliance called The Last Alliance, which I’m pretty sure means nothing.

So yeah, I think after 3 months of playing harder than I ever believed, I will leave in third place again. I have appealed to Marcelo, but I’m not optimistic. I suppose I’ll find out in an hour.

Ky forever Mad Scientists forever

Confessional:

You know, I think I’m actually okay with being voted out. Like the competitive side of me is screaming for me to try harder.. But the rest of me accepts that this is no longer in my hands.. Plus now I don’t have to wait like 3 months to find out if I won or not.

Of course I’d like to go to the end and finish what I’ve started, but I am ready for the uselessness and disappointment to go away.

Just to note: this is not me giving up, I’m still fighting! But I think I can live with this cause I can just blame Logan’s twists lol, jk.

Alright.

Marcelo, Renee, and Rudez, congratulations on making it this far. After over three months of playing this gruelling game, you finally get to make your plea to the jury. Then we will have a vote.

You have until 6:00pm eastern Saturday to post your plea. Jury and viewers, please hold off on making any comments or sending questions.

What’s left of the Spacko tribe. . .you’re up.

MARCELO: IDK!!!!

RUDEZ: Hard. If there’s one word to describe my game, it’s hard. This game was hard for me and I played hard. I played hard from day 0 and I never stopped playing hard. My game was messy, and I wasn’t nice, but I played this game with vigor and passion.

PREMERGE
Premerge, I was Cap’n Rudez and had my day 0 alliance with Brian secured. I instilled the idea in Ky that winning challenges was incredibly important, and as our tribe grew, I took it on myself to welcome our new members and make them feel involved in the tribe. This allowed Brian and I to choose whom we wanted to go to the merge with. My close relationship with Cameron allowed me to know what was going on everywhere else in the game at no expense to myself, and there was only one elimination that was a surprise to me – Dave’s, which ultimately led to Cameron’s ousting for giving the idol to Fiona. Premerge, I worked on making members of our tribe proud of being in Ky, and it’s something I hope people still feel.

IDOLS
I had access to every idol that was found in this game. Not many people know this, but before Cameron had the puzzle idol, Lyndsay had it first. When I got the answer to a puzzle wrong, I sent all the correct answers to Lyndsay and she obtained the idol and shared the code with me. After realizing that the puzzle I submitted had a problem, I told Logan about it and we gave the idol back knowing we had unfairly acquired it. I found the Ky idol and only told Brian about it, and I told Lyndsay what she needed to do to get the Co idol first. We also finally discovered how to tell if an idol is fake or not in one of Logan’s games

MERGE
I never ever expected for Ky to go into the merge without the numbers. I had always assumed that we would have the upper hand, and that with mine and Brian’s connections on Co, we would have no problem dictating the votes. I didn’t stress too much though when that did not happen because I had assumed that those leading Co would approach the merge the way I had planned on approaching it i.e. Not a Pagonging. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I knew, even with a Pagonging, that if I just stayed quiet and waited for the opportune moment, my vote would have been needed around the final 9 for my friends on Co to take control of Co. But it was my intention to go to the end of this game with Brian and so I did all I could to make sure there was a place for both of us. So I made a space by forcing Co to vote out one of their own by playing an idol and a talisman, revealing exactly how their tribe was split. This led to the vote outs of Michael, Naomi, and Jeremy.

POST-BRIAN
After Brian was voted out, and Lyndsay soon following, I knew that winning immunities was important. I had always worked hard on the challenges, and my hard work paid off, even when I assumed no one would try I tried my best. There are many ways to get to the end of Survivor, and going on an immunity run is one of them. I watched as each of my challenge threats got voted out until it was too late and I had won 6 immunity necklaces. With my immunity wins came information about there not being a challenge in the F3, and with that information I knew I had to do something with my image, and so I worked on vilifying myself due to being such a threat the entire game.

THE IDK MOVE™ -named by Marcelo
After losing the F4 challenge, I knew I was leaving. Marcelo and I spoke, and we came up with the plan to take the control of the game out of Sergiu’s hands. I’m incredibly proud of this move, one that never ever had the possibility of working, and I know that it is the only reason I am still in this game.

I know how I am perceived in this game. I know that some people will never talk to me again. I know that people would never have played the game the way I did. But I came here to play the best way I know how, I played in every aspect of the game with everything I had.. You don’t have to like me, but you can’t deny I played hard!

MARCELO: Hey jury, let talk!! First, I would like to thank you guys. I had the best time playing this game and the personality/gameplay of you guys were the biggest reason why I loved so much, so THANKS!

Now, let’s talk a little bit about my gameplay. I played this game very hard. I played every round like it was my last round. I gave everything that I have to this game. Im so proud of the game that I played and I hope you guys are too and vote for me to win.

The Paranoid Strategy

Im a very paranoid person in the game of survivor, but in this game I decided to overplay this aspect of my personality. At one point or another, I must have talked to almost everyone in the jury about how much paranoid I was and how I though I was going home.
The reason behind that: It gives the impression to the person that is calming me down that we are bonding and that I owe them some sort of loyalty for the fact that they are keeping me safe. Besides that, It also gives people the impression that I dont know what is going on in the game and that Im in the bottom of an alliance(so that if people want to make a move they should come to me)

In the premerge, this strategy made me real close with rudez, and brian(which would benefit me after the merge) and cameron.
Cameron was a great player who was playing to hard. I knew he was talking to everyone, but i knew if i played stupid I could win a lot. He gave me a lot of info that helped me in my premerge game and post game. Cam gave me immunity when I asked for it and he also told me about Lyndasy’s idol.
BTW, Im not saying that my paranoia was fake, lol. Im just saying that I used my real paranoia as a part of my gameplay.

EFE and LYN

One of my best moves of the game was to align with Efe and Lyn. I had an alliance with efe since the beggning of the game so when i flipped to the Co tribe I knew I had at least one person. After talking to Lyndsay for 5 minutes I knew we were gonna be in an alliance. We clicked and became great friends. I did my best to be in the center of these two and become the main alliance of both of them. I think I did a pretty good job, but you will have to ask them with I succeed. The fact that I voted for Lyn shows a important side of my game. I didnt play personal. I did what I though it was the best move for my game. It was hard to vote some of you guys, but that is the game.

BRIAN VOTE
I knew that brian was gonna be voted out. Me and and efe talked and we came up with the plan to make a tie. So that Efe could work on one side of the game and I could work in the other side. That way, people wouldnt realize we were very close. This was very hard too, but like I said I was not playing personal.

SERGIU VOTE
After, Renne won immunity, I asked Sergiu who he was voting out: me or rudez. He said he didnt know and he was 50/50. He explained to me that he lied about not trusting dq that they were actualy together all the time(basicaly saying that they were going to f2 together).. So i talked with rudez and we came up with the plan to take him out. In the day of the vote, Sergiu told me he was not gonna vote for me, but 10 minutes after that he said “nevermind”. So i didnt have another option, i needed to make a move.

Thats it guys. Sorry for my english. vote for me.

RENEE: Wow how do I even begin accept to say that luck has been on my side! When people say luck has nothing to do with this game I beg to differ. I’m not saying that I didn’t try my hardest, however my game was almost entirely social and relied upon the relationships I made throughout it’s entirety. The one challenge I knew I could win I finally was able to participate in and was able to win!
Before merge:
Ky was winning. We were on top of the world.We started with a core alliance that included Rudez, Myself, Christian, Cameron & Brian. When More and more people began to join Ky, Rudez seemed less and less loyal to this core. It was unanimous in our decision to vote out Cameron, it was not in the decision to vote out Christian. It was that moment that I knew our core alliance was in trouble and felt I was next. it was at this point in the game that we merged.
Merge:
So I was ready to jump ship as soon as we merged. Rudez informed me that I was next to go and it was out of her control. I soon found out that she was in fact offering me up to the opposing Co tribe to vote out and spoke with Naomi letting her know I would faithfully vote with her, however she wanted. Loyalty plays a huge role in this game for me and I saw none from my former tribe mates. I was not voted out. Shortly after this I began to talk to Marcelo and Serg forming what would come to be lasting and sincere bonds. Brian and Rudez seemed intent on bringing me back on board with Ky but the damage had been done. They even used an idol to “save” me at one point but I knew the intentions of this were not sincere. I continued to vote with those I remained loyal to.
Naomi:
I was shocked with this vote. I did not vote for you. This was the one opportunity we had to get Rudez out of the game so I was very sad and blindsided when you left.
Efe:
I would have not voted you out if I thought I could beat you, but in the end my loyalties were with Serg & Marcelo.
Serg:
If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have come so far in this game. Our unlikely alliance served us well as we shared so much information that helped keep us safe. Again I was completely blindsided by your departure. I did not see that coming.
So much of this game for myself has been about information, relationships, and gut instincts. I am humbled to have made it this far in a game where the challenges almost always baffle and madden me! I played hard in the most discrete way I could. I hope that the bonds I have made on this journey see that. Oh and I have been very lucky. Thank you lady luck.

ME: Okay. Thanks for the pleas, guys.

Now, as everyone knows, this series will never ever have a Final Three.

Prior to this season, players have always been nervous about the Final Two being determined by the winner of a live challenge that may or may not win due to others suffering from lag. Therefore, I decided to have it at Final Four rather than Final Three, and let your own merits determine who will make Final Two. In addition, instead of making this twist a complete surprise, I gave you two rewards over the past several rounds that strongly hinted at this twist occurring.

And because I want to serve you up one last all-star twist, here is what is going to happen:

The three of you will vote. Nobody will wear immunity. One of you will become the twenty-first person voted out of this game, and the eleventh and final member of our jury.

Because nobody is immune from this vote unless they are playing an idol, no votes are determined by default.

That means Renee can vote for Marcelo or Rudez.
Marcelo can vote for Renee or Rudez.
Rudez can vote for Marcelo or Renee.

No votes cancel out.

And for the first time ever, the votes will be announced in front of the jurors and viewers in twenty-four hours.

When you vote privately, please do so in the following manner:

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: lalalalllphilillalalalalalalala la lululu lalalala. That’s llama for “After nearly 120 Tribal Councils, I finally get the honour of voting you out. I have been waiting so long for this. I have honestly ran out of reasons by this point. There is only one left: You are a smelly little pirate hooker, and I want you to go back to your home on Whore Island. In fact, that could be your own spin-off for SCWL 8: The Next Generation.”

Okay. You cannot vote for. . .well, scratch that. You can vote for anyone. Everybody is fair game. Between now and 3:00pm eastern Sunday, it is time to vote. Spacko tribe, you’re up.

RUDEZ: This may be the worst twist ever 😉

CAM: Can I finally say how f—ing impressed I am with Marcelo?

VOTING

MARCELO,

7.203 Rite of Passage

MARCELO,

Gloria- I dont know who u are

Eamon- im sorry, i couldnt trust you.

Moray- dont know who u are

Sheri- if u say yes to play, u should have played

Jessica- great girl

Kj- i dont remember who u are

Jason- dont know who u are

Dave- Marcelo happened

Heeral- i wish i could have played this game with u

Fiona- who?

Cameron- if everyone can see that u are playing this hard and great game, u are not playing well

Christian- who?

Aaron- cool kid

Leif and lister- idk what was going on with u guys. Social game is the most important thing on this game

Michael- my right hand men. I wish u were more online

Naomi- this is the second time that im in the finals and u are in the jury. My guess is that u are gonna make a studpidy move again and vote for the worst player. That is the kinda player u are

Brian- great player. But u are never gonna win this game if u keep playing like this. No one want to bring a perfect player to the end

Jeremy- i dont respect your game at all, and i would have voted for DQ over u. Social game >>>>>>>>>win challenges

Lyn- great player. In my eyes, u were the favorite to win

Efe-great player.

Serg- u were sooooo cocky the week that i voted u out. U thought u were gonna win this. The blindside was delicious

Rudez- i dont respect who stays in this game just because they won immunity, however u are not just that. Great player. U are the female version of brian

Done

RENEE,
Gloria: I did not get the opportunity to really get to know you this game. Had you stayed in it I’m sure I might have more to say.

Eamon: We do indeed have a history. I’m glad I didn’t even have to make an effort to get you out. You are a beast in challenges.

Moray & Sheri: don’t know either of you very well. Sorry for your early depearture and good luck in future games

Jessica: I had just mentioned in my confessional that I hoped I could outlast you given you were part of the reason I left in SCWL 4. Then *Poof* you were gone.It was only a matter of time cuz I was gunning for you.

KJ: One more I didn’t get a chance to get to know being that opur tribes were so divided.

Jason: I know you are a challenge beast. I was surprised you left so early!

Dave: Again another surprising early boot. You were an obvious threat So it’s understandable.

Heeral: Mad love for Heeral she was in my season! wish you could have stuck around longer!

Fiona

: I understand you were stronger in your season I wish I had gotten to know you better

Cameron: If you hadn’t been conniving with the other tribes and giving away idol’s to them you prolly would have stayed.

Christian: we had just made an F2 and Rudez got our tribe to vote you out. a very sad day indeed. This is the single biggest reason Rudez and I could no longer be allies.

Aaron: it was either you or me in this vote. Rudez sealed your fate by telling me this. Sorry bro my hands were tied.

Leif: again I am sorry my hands were tied when voting you out. The majority wanted this and so I went with the majority.

Michael: I’m sure your a great guy. Not sure why you left but glad it was you & not me

Lister: I hated voting you out. I even promised Naomi I wouldn’t. But when it came to it.. the fact that we had never spoken even once the entire game made it easier to write your name down.

Naomi: Again I was blindsided and saddened by your vote. If I had known I would have fought for you to stay.

Brian: I knew you and Rudez had a final 2. You had to go. Great game Brian.

Jeremy: You were essential to me getting further in the game. Thank you and it was great getting to know you..

Lyndsay: Yet another I never spoke with this entire game. This was one of the easiest votes as I knew you and Rudez knew eachother in R/L.

Efe: It was really great to play with you. You said I couldn’t win a challenge unless andrew signed on to my acct and did it himself. I had to prove you wrong.

Sergiu: I would never have gotten to this point without you. You have one of the biggest heats I’ve ever seen in the Org community. I think we will be friends long after this game is over.

Rudez: you played a fierce game. But when Your loyalty wavered I had to part ways. You were a beast in challenges and I give you mad props for that. Neither of us could beat you in the end. You had to go. Well done though and you played an amazing game.

Done

7.206 Final Tribal Council

FINAL TRIBAL COUNCIL

(MARCELO)-(RENEE)
XXX
(GLORIA)-(EAMON)-(moray)-(sheri)-(JESSICA)-(KJ)-(JASON)-(DAVE)-(HEERAL)-(FIONA)-(CAMERON)-(CHRISTIAN)

(AARON)-(LEIF)-(MICHAEL)-(LISTER)-(NAOMI)-
(BRIAN)-(JEREMY)-(LYNDSAY)-(EFE)-(SERGIU)-(RUDEZ)

Alright. The Rite of Passage is complete. Your opening statement plea was already completed in the previous round.

Now it is time for the jury to address you here in public for the first time since each of them were voted out of this game. Aaron, Leif, Michael, Lister, Naomi, Brian, Jeremy, Lyndsay, Efe, Sergiu, and Rudez, voted out at the last Tribal Council. These eleven players will either make a statement or ask each of you a question.

How you respond to each juror could very well determine whether or not you lose this game. And unlike past seasons where there have always been seven or nine jurors, this expansion to eleven jurors that most of you agreed upon could very well make this the most difficult Final Tribal Council in SCWL history.

And with that, it is time to release the hounds. The Final Two are all yours, jurors. Feel free to create your own thread for the questions you would like to ask.

EFE’S QUESTION

Congratilations guys!! What an unexpected F2!! I think you guys played a better game than everyone thinks. You were both underdogs, you survived while big players took each other out and now you are here at F2. You are here for a reason and you both deserved it.

MARCELO
You survived very hard votes along the way in OW, CO and at merge and received so many votes. I think you did a great job dealing with these past votes because they made you an easy target in the game. You have been saved so many times by others and that’s your success either.
My questions are;
There is three aspects in this game; challenges, strategy and social skills. In which of them you were better than Reene?
Reene said that luck had been on her side and there is a luck factor that we can’t deny in this game. I totally agree with her. Do you think you are also lucky to be here, how much of your success do you contribute to luck?
Did you know that I was the one at F5? (don’t answer IDK :D)

It was fun to play with you!

REENE
I personally think that your game deserves much more credit than it gets. People just can’t tell you that you did nothing to reach here. Doing nothing is Sheri Martinez so you definitely played a game. I think former KY members have to respect your game because your game play was the perfect example of how they should have played. That’s how you compensate your disadvantage when you are in minority at merge. Congrats once again!
My Questions are;
We bonded very late in the game, I guess 4 or 5 rounds after merge and reason I got close with you because I knew that I could beat you at F2. Do you think that people only allied with you because you are most likely to end up as a goat or there is more that that?
Do you have a second big move that you can own except flipping at merge?
Why you didn’t trust me enough to vote Sergui?

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Thanks for the questions Efe!
I think I am better than dq in the strategy and social part of the game. Im not the biggest fan of the physical part of the game, because I think Its way more impressive to survive the vote using the bonds and relationships you have built. I didnt try to win any challenge(Im not saying I would win if I tried, because I dont think I woudl), because I have the same game mentality as Dan and Will from big brother. I think beeing a challenge beast hurts more than help, thats why in the final 2 Its me and dq, and not brian and rudez. But if you compare my physical game with dq Its not that different. She won just one immunity, and I won the captains challenge day one of the game.Its not the same thing, but I want you guys to realize its not like Im coutney yates VS ozzy, just because she won one challenge, haha.
I agree with your statement. Luck is a big part of this game, and I for sure had a lot of it. I think luck is one of the reasons that I am here, however, I believe It wasnt luck that brought me to the end, as jeremy said “with the only person that you could potentially beat”. I didnt let lady luck to do all the work, I played very hard to make sure I was in the end with someone I could beat, and that meant making big moves to voted out a lot of people that I really liked.
I didnt know you were leaving. It wouldnt make sense to me to go to the final 4 with sergiu because he would vote with rudez, making a tie and I would be gone. So when you were voted out I had to play extra hard to make sure there was not a tie.
Thats a great point. I had so much past votes this whole game. Everysingle round that there was a even number of people, I had to make sure there was not gonna be a tie. I had to play with this huge target in my back, just because I was an easy vote on some rounds.
Great playing with u.

RENEE’S RESPONSE

Efe I would sat winning final immunity was a huge move and I knew I couldn’t beat you in a f2 two.

RUDEZ’S STATEMENT

RUDEZ’ JURY THREAD:
I have no questions. I have statements.

NICE THINGS:
Marcelo, what I liked about your game is that everyone knew you were coasting to the end, but everyone thought you were coasting with them.
Renee, what I liked about your game is that once you flipped, you stayed flipped (crappy for me, but looks good for you).

BAD THINGS:
You two, in my opinion, are the most disappointing final 2 that I can imagine, and the fact that this is All Stars makes it 100% worse. What I respect is someone who plays their best, goes to the end with the best, and beats the best. This is just… pathetic.

Marcelo, you played ‘the paranoid strategy’, and for anyone on the other side of your paranoia it got incredibly annoying. I don’t buy that you were putting it on for a second; I think you are a paranoid player and if we did not comfort you, you would somehow mess up the plans.

Renee, you were so bad at challenges that on Ky we actively kept you away from them. You couldn’t follow the simplest of instructions and if you hadn’t decided to ‘help’ with that final tribal challenge, Ky may have had a chance of winning it and entering the merge with numbers. You did it completely wrong and then disappeared for over 12 hours, putting those of us who were doing it correctly in a corner. It seems like the most complicated instructions you could understand were to say ‘Here’ after ‘Roll Call’.

MY PLEA:
I plead to the jury today to think a little bit of the internet we have been on. This internet is full of, pretty much, only two things – platypuses and blob fish. And in the end of Mother Nature, we have Marcelo the platypus, who knowingly didn’t do very much; and Renee, who turned into the blob fish that sat around like blob fish do on this internet, trying to outsit the platypus. I believe we owe it to the internet spirits we have come to know to let it end in the way that Mother Nature intended: For the platypus to be mildly more interesting than the blob fish.

BRIAN’S QUESTION

BRIAN’S JURY THREAD

Hey guys! Before we get to the fun part let me congratulate you both on getting to the end. It was supposed to me sitting there, but not enough people got that memo I guess!

GENERAL GAME QUESTION FOR BOTH PLAYERS

In the jury house the term “Goat” has been tossed about regarding both of you by at least some jury members which may or may not include me. Do you feel this designation is fair? Was it part of your strategy at any point to be perceived this way? Please elaborate!

QUESTION ABOUT ME BECAUSE I LIKE TO HEAR MY NAME

Marcelo, in the vote I went home you say you knew all along it was going to be me. What would you have done if I had really pushed for a Renee vote instead? Would you have blindsided me? Where you ever actually considering working with me postmerge and if so, what happened?

Renee, you told Rudez you were not voting me, but you failed to answer any of my messages during the vote and you continued to ignore me during the revote, even as Serg and Efe admitted nicely that I was gone. Why? Were you scared of me or something? Why were you so sure I wouldn’t work with you postmerge?

SCWL QUESTION BECAUSE I CAN

Being allstars, I think it’s important to have a sense of this series rich history so please answer your question, explaining how you figured out the answer.

Marcelo, name a player who successfully played a HII in an SCWL season you were not part of. Who was voted out that round.

Renee, name a player who was voted out holding a HII in an SCWL season you were not part of.

BONUS QUESTION FOR THE DISASTER QUEEN

Renee, in your opening statement you mentioned luck as being a huge part of your game. And I have to agree. If Rudez and I were loyal to you, you probably would have been picked off right after the merge. Part of the reason an idol wasn’t played on Aaron was that it result in you going home and similarly Rudez and I were hoping you would be willing to work with us later on when she gave you the medallion, but even when you didn’t want to, I didn’t consider that move a waste because Co would just have voted you out and remained as tight as ever! Do you feel that luck is a reason I should vote for you, or should I vote for you despite your luck.

SOME NICE WORDS AT THE END SO YOU WON’T HATE ME TOO MUCH

Again congrats! Marcelo, you do not play the type of game I most tend to respect but I’ve seen you play it 3 times now and the results speak for themselves. DQ, luck drove you quite far, but you did deal well with the situations you were fortunate enough to fall into. I hope for your sakes that the other 10 jurors don’t all go as crazy as me, but I have huge respect for SCWL and wanted to make sure the person who gets my vote earns it!

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

GENERAL QUESTION
In this game perception is reality. In the moment people think you are the mastermind, you are the mastermind. Even if you are not. In my opinion, to win this game you need to make people think they can beat you. Or you you will not make it to the end. You need to play bad enough ( actualy, the perception of your gameplay need to be that they could beat you in the end) to be taken, but could enough(or at least better than your fellow final 2 castmate) to win the game. If you are playing very hard (Cameron) and everyone is seeing that you are playing very hard, you are not doing a good job. But If people perceived that you are a goofyball that dont have a mind for strategy, but you are actualy playing hard, then thats the way to go. And that what I did. So to finish the question: Yes, It was part of my strategy to be perceived this way, 100%.

QUESTIONS ABOUT BRIAN
If you would have pushed for a Dq vote, I would have blindsided you. But I dont think this would have happened, because I told you I wouldnt vote for dq, thats why we voted for Jeremy. So it was not gonna be a blindside. I wanted to go with dq to the end, actualy, since she flipped. And here I am with her. The tie vote was the best solution for this problem. That way me and Efe wouldnt seems as close as we were, and each of us could work on people from diferent sides.
Yes. I considered everything in this game. I think adaptability is the key to be a good player in this game. There is no question that you are a great friend, however, I dont make moves for personal reasons. I wouldnt have gone with you to the end, because you are the “perfect” player ( or perceived to be, samething). I thought about working with you, and I did for some votes, because you, like me, do the best move for your game. And, in my opinion, these types of players are the best to play with. But, in that moment, I thought the best move for MY game was to do what I did.

SCWL QUESTION
S6 Robb used his HII on DeAnna Which sent Nick home. i got this answer from Lyn. Thanks Lyn!! #NoShame
Brian, you know that I wasnt on the SCWL main group after our season and before the scwl all stars. There is no big reason behind that. I actualy dont even know why I wasnt on anymore.
When Logan asked me to be on this season, I didnt know anyone. Just the people that I played with, and this is only my game number 4. Im not very presence on the ORG community at all. And I think not knowing helped my game because I was not paying attention on how people played, I was paying attention on how people were playing the ALL STARS game.

RENEE’S RESPONSE

Not answering in exact order but Eamon was voted out in SCWL 2 in the 8th round with an Idol.

Goat is not something I would categorize myself as honestly. I played as hard as I could in an under the radar fashion. I would be lying if I said this wasn’t part of my strategy. Who wouldn’t take someone to the end they thought they could beat? Certainly no one expected me to be able to win the final challenge. So did I hold back as a form of strategy? Of course I did. I also knew from Rudez emotional reaction that you two were F2 when I voted you out. I didn’t talk to you before the vote because I knew Rudez wouldn’t stop trying to do whatever it took to keep you. It wasn’t cowardice. I just knew you two were inseparable. So I guess no I didn’t believe you would work with me – honestly work with me – post merge unless it meant getting you and Rudez further in the game together.

JEREMY’S JURY QUESTION

Congratulations to both of you guys. I feel that you have both played much stronger games than you will be given credit for. I haven’t made up my mind yet but I’ll probably be satisfied with either of you winning.

Marcelo. You happen to be at the final 2 with the only person that you could potentially beat. However it seems that you may have got incredibly lucky that Sergiu completely misplayed the final 4. The obvious solution for that round was for him to vote with Rudez to take you out and then go to the end with DQ. Rudez has admitted that she would have voted you out. Did you realise this? and if so why did you not take steps prior to this round to avoid such a situation?

Renee. If Sergiu had made the lesser mistake and voted Rudez out at final 4 would you have taken him to the end or would you have gone with Marcelo knowing that you would have a better chance of winning?

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Thanks for the questions Jeremy!!
Yes, I realise that I was in dangerous in the final 4, It was probably the round that I was more nervous. But I think Im not getting the credit I deserve for this move.
When Rudez beat sergiu on the challenge I started working on her(i didnt think dq could beat her time). I told het that there was no way that Sergiu would take her to the end, and that I would.

I played sooo hard to make her realize that Serg and dq were together and she would go home number 3, but If she would save me I would bring her to the end. I told her the only way that we both would go to the end is if we are both in the f3. I told her that she should give me her necklace and we could vote dq out together. I think i did a pretty good job with that, but even if It wouldnt have worked It was enought to show her that serg and dq were unbreakable and I was willing to go to the end with her.
When dq won immunity, I asked serg if he would vote for Rudez or me and he said he was 50/50. Then i talked to rudez and we came up with that plan TOGETHER. If i didnt make a good job selling to rudez that I would bring her, this wouldnt have worked. I did my job begging for serg to vote for rudez, and Rudez made her job trying to get him to vote for me. So he wouldnt see that we were working together.
Later, Sergiu told me that he lied about not trusting dq this whole game, and in reality they were very close, basicaly saying they were unbreakable. So he gave me more info that I could share with rudez and make her realize that this move is the best one for both of us.
In the last hour before Logan locked out votes, What people dont know is that DQ told me that Sergiu was selfing voting. So I knew in that point that I was the deciding vote.
In the beggning of this final 4, I was a goner. But I worked sooooo hard, and in the end I casted my vote for who I wanted to go home and for who I wanted to go to the final 3 with, not receiving one single vote that round. I voted Sergiu out because I realized that both Rudez and DQ would take me to the end, and, next round, I would be the decing vote again.

RENEE’S RESPONSE

Honestly Jereny I had f2’s with both of them. it would have been the hardest vote ever.. but there is no way I could have beaten Serg.

So Marcelo was my f2 to be completely honest. We knew knew there was no way way either of us could beat Sergiu.

JEREMY’S RESPONSE

Honestly I am still undecided

On the one hand I feel like Marcelo is doing a better job of answering questions. On the other hand I feel like Renee winning the final 4 immunity challenge is largely responsible for this final 2. If Rudez wins, Marcelo likely is done that round and Sergiu wins the game. So pulling out a clutch win at the end is very impressive and was necessary for this result to happen imo.

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

in the final 4 when i thought rudez was gonna win the challenge i started working on her. I made her realize that serg and dq were unbreakable and she was gonna be voted out on f3. My plan was to make her give me her necklace and i really think i might have got it. I did a pretty good job with my arguments and she was considering giving it to me. Besides that, i had connections with both dq and rudez and we will never know what would have happened even if rudez did give me her necklace. The only think i know is that i never quit, and i would fight to be in this game.
And luck is a great part of the game, dq winning was luck for me and i used to benefit my game, im sure dq had a lot of lucks in this game as well so i dont think would be fair for her to win your vote bc she won one challenge.

RUDEZ’S INTERRUPTION 🙂

It’s true.. I seriously considered giving the immunity to Marcelo if I won it.. Take away sergiu’s best friend and the biggest goat in this game.. So it turns out that yes Renee winning the final challenge is responsible for this final 2, but not in the way you expected

JEREMY’S RESPONSE

Hmm interesting. So you would have given him immunity under the presumption that you would both vote for DQ?

A plan which would effectively give Marcelo a zero percent chance of winning the game? Can I assume that if you, Marcelo, had actually received immunity from Rudez that you would have made sure that either Sergiu or Rudez were voted out?

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Yes, u can assume that jeremy. I was gonna try to get serg out but if i was no capable at the moment i would have blindsided rudez

Since dq fipped my plan was to get me and her here. And i think it says a lot about my game that the final 2 is me and her.

JEREMY’S RESPONSE

Does it also say a lot about DQ’s game considering that she wanted to get to the end with you?

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

You can say that if you want, but i was the one that approached dq. I was the one that talked to her everyday and made her like me. She never tried to talk to me about game, it was the other way around. I talked with everyone in the game after the merge and there was a lot of rounds that dq was supoosed to be vote out but I change the outcome bc i needed her( brian vote, lyndasy vote). I think my social game helped us to get here and dq social game hurt us to get here since she only talked with her friends and never with Lyn, rudez, brian…

LEIF’S STATEMENT

Congrats F2, at one point in time we have crossed paths and I can say that there are times I question whether each of you both deserve to be in F2 but nevertheless you are there and I am here as one of the jury asking or telling you how I lost and how you both made it there.Marcelo, you have surprised me because I do feel I underestimated you a lot but looking back at what you have been through and what you had to do, you showed that you were really here to play.

As for DQ, I could not really comment much on your gameplay because all I can remember is that you won the an endurance immunity challenge. But that’s it. I really have not much to say about you but congrats on making it to the end.

I really don’t have any questions but I will be looking at what you answer to everyone else’s questions which may or may not determine who I ultimately vote for the winner. Good luck to both of you and congrats once again for making it to F2.

AARON’S QUESTION

Congratulations to the F2!! As the first jury member and first boot of the merge, I am kind of out of the loop on a lot of things that happened during the merge and I don’t really have an opinion on either of you. So this is your chance to impress me!

I want both of you to list your best move throughout the whole game and your worst move throughout your game. Try to make this something you decided on your own and not with a group or alliance.

DQ,
When we were on KY, you seemed very inactive to me. You rarely posted in the group and never talked to me. I heard later that you seemed to have a vendetta against me. So basically:
1) Were you inactive or were you just inactive to me?
2) Did you have a vendetta against me and if so, why?

MARCELO,
I don’t have any other questions for you lol. Your new profile pic is hot though. Werk it!

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

My first big move was when I voted Eamon out. Eamon and I played this game 2 times besides this one. He was my number one ally both times and I blindsided him both times. So, in my mind there was no way I could trust him, because why would he trust me for a third time? I wouldnt.

So before the merge I had my opportunity, I was between two alliances: A COW and the season 2 alliance. Right before the vote, Cameron sent me a “convo” that he had with eamon who said he wanted me out. I knew that the convo was fake the moment he sent it to me, however, I knew I could use this for my advantage. I talked with michael(my number one alliance) and we decided that we would vote eamon out. My plan was to vote eamon out(someone I couldnt trust) and right after the vote I would show the side of the alliance that I betrayed(Dave Bronson) the fake screenshot.

He would know that the convo was fake, but I could play dumb and say I thought It was real and It was move I needed to make. In my mind he would have forgave this paranoid goofyball. However, in the last minutes before the deadline, Michael changed his mind and told Dave that we were voting Eamon out. So Dave freaked out and said he wouldnt trust us anymore if we voted for eamon. So michael decided to vote with him, and It was clear for me that I was the deciding vote. The person that I voted would be gone, and I voted for eamon. Elliminating a strong player who I couldnt trust and showing A COW(especialy efe who would be very important for my game in the future) that I was loyal to them.

– My second big move was when heeral was voted out. After I flipped to heerals tribe, I started working on efe and Lyndsay. I showed them they could trust me and we could be the final 3. Besides them, I had fiona and my loyal friend Michael. Before the vote everyone said to me to vote for fiona, however, I decided to vote for heeral with fiona and michael hoping that this was gonna be enough to make a tie.

And it was. I knew they were spliting the votes, because of some convos I had that day. If i followed orders I would be 100% safe, and fiona would be gone, but me voting for heeral and making a tie (and puting my safety in risky) made Lyn and efe chose a side. And I must have done a pretty good job showing that they could trust me and that Heeral was a big player, that they voted to keep me.

– After the merge, I was a part of every blindside until the efe “boot episode”. I helped eliminate big players like naomi, lister and jeremy.
-I co created the plan( with efe) to make a tie and blindside brian. So I could pretend to be shock and work on people on the brian side, not showing how close me and efe were. But it was the plan since the beggning that efe would flip back and vote jeremy out in the next vote, even before rudez.
– The most difficult one: the lyndsay blindside. Me and efe talked and we both realize it was time to make that move. It was a big move, because she had the idol (that I knew about since before the merge when Cameron told me) and she would probably give it to me. A lot of people think that Efe worked his magic on me and made me vote my number one ally out. However, that is not the case. Me and efe had an alliance since A COW and we came up with this plan together. Right after the vote, Efe was having second thoughts about the plan, but I said we had to do it. I said It was the best move for us. Again, this was probably the hardest vote of the game.

-The sergiu voted out. Rudez and I came up with this plan together. In the beggning of this vote, I was basicaly told that I had 50% chance of beeing voted out and in the end I was the deciding vote. I knew I was because DQ told me before the deadline that Sergiu told her he was self voting. So the person that I would vote, would be the person that would go home. I voted sergiu out because I knew Rudez would bring me to the end, and so would renner. And they did.

Thanks for the questions buddy

RENEE’S RESPONSE

Aaron: I was told by my tribe you wanted me out at the first opportunity as soon as you joined KY. I’m not sure exactly but it’s probably why I made no effort to converse with you. I don’t know if this is the truth of the matter but had you contacted me or tried I would have been happy to go further in the game with you. I genuinely like you as a player so this surprised me.

And no.. no vendetta tbh. None whatsoever. As far my game play. My worst move was agreeing to a F2 with Rudez in the beginning and allowing her to take charge of our tribes challenges. It may look like I took a back seat but in truth I was almost given orders. In one particular game I researched the game to death and regret not having stood my ground on a winning strategy I could have implemented. Instead I was directed back and forth between Cameron and Christian when I should have just jumped in and shown what I was capable of. This was pre-merge. So while I appreciate all the wins we had on KY I do feel like it was the intention of Rudez to take control and there by blame any one of us she thought didn’t contribute or didn’t participate to her standards.

Team work would have been been a much better strategy in those instances. I think calling her out as a major threat to win the game at merge worked in my favor. I was able to show Rudez was disloyal to her own core alliance and secure myself with the remaining Co in promising my vote. My relationship with Naomi brought me into the fold and I began to build relationships with the the other Co. Tribe. Marcelo and I clearly at the bottom immediately bonded. It was after Naomi was voted out that Serg and I really became close. I had an alliance with Efe and Marcelo and at the same time Serg had on alliance with Rudez. We shared all our information and it helped us immensely in the game.

AARON’S RESPONSE

MARCELO,
Just to clarify, are you saying the Lyndsay boot was the worst move of your game?

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Yes, i think i made the move to soon and It could have backfired but luckly i was able to adapt and continue the game from there

AARON’S RESPONSE

RENEE,
Who specifically told you that I wanted you out? Because this is not true. When it got down to 7 and there was a thread between myself, Rudez, Lister, Brian, and Leif and the only outsiders were Christian and yourself, I wanted to vote you because I saw you as less active and more likely to flip. But I didn’t come into the tribe wanting to vote you out and I did try to contact you at the beginning.

RENEE’S RESPONSE

As I said the first challenge I was traveling. A seven hour drive as it turned out many of the challenges seemed to occur while I was en route somewhere. Aaron, it was Rudez that told me you wanted me out as soon as you joined Ky.

LISTER’S QUESTION

Well. Guess I should say something shouldn’t I? First off let me just channel my inner McKayla Maroney and say that I’m not impressed. Now maybe the reason I feel this way is because I didn’t have much interaction with the two of you. Fact is the two of you are in the finals and one of you is going to win. So congrats on that.

Nonetheless, it’s my job as a Juror to ask you two a question and then vote for one of you. I’ve read through your opening statements and to be honest I didn’t get much of a good feeling from either of them. So again, not impressed.

What I want both of you to do for me is to say in 300 words or less why you should win over your fellow finalist. I don’t want to just here why you should win or why they should not win, I want direct comparisons. I want your game vs. their game. Give me examples. Give me reference points. Sell me on why you should be the winner of this All-Star season over the other person. Compare your strategic games. Compare your social games. Compare your “physical” games. Give it me. All in 300 words or less. I will be putting whatever you post through a word count program and if it’s even one word over 300 then I will not read your response.

If after you both post you want to argue with each other and defend yourself against the other person you are more than welcome to do that. Just let me know ahead of time so I can stick a bag of popcorn in the microwave.

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

In my opinion, this is the key to win the game.
– DQ only talked to people she was friends with, forgeting about players like Lyn, Brian and Rudez. In the other hand, I talked(or at least tried my best to talk to) to everyone on point or another. And i think my social game saved dq a lot of times ( in the brian and lyndasy vote) and her social game hurted us, because everyone who she didnt talk wanted her gone.

STRATEGIC GAME
-I knew what was going on almost 100% of this game. I almost always voted with the majority and I made a lot of moves by myself or was in the decison process during this game.. Dq in the other hand was a lot of times shocked with the eliminations, because she was not a part of the the decision like I was. The only huge move that dq made was flipping to the side that had the majority, so her flip didnt change much. It was more common sense than a great move.

PHYSICAL GAME
-DQ won one challenge. She is not a challenge beast like some people are saying, haha. I won the captains challenge day one. I know its not the same thing, but what I want you guys to realize that its not a Ozzy VS Courtney Yates scenario, just because she won ONE challenge.

RENEE’S RESPONSE

Social
Ok to be fair I did not forget about players such as Lynsday, Brian and Rudez. Lyndsay I tried to talk to and she failed to respond, Brian and Rudez I spoke with at length even after they tried to vote me out and Serg spoke with Rudez thus relaying information to me after we stopped talking directy.I always kept my line of communication open with anyone that would talk to me spare Rudez later in the game. If Serg and I hadn’t been telling one another what was going on in our social sphere’s I would not be here.
Strategically
Without the exchange of information between Serg and I, so many votes would have been different. We basically controlled who stayed and who left. No one knew of our alliance so this was pivotal in my strategy. Not even Marcelo knew of our alliance until the end of the game. I give a lot of credit to Serg for having made it to where I am. Also I had Final 2 deals with Serg, Marcelo & Efe so I was getting information from each of them individually. Obviously this helped me immensely as each of them told me either different or corroborating details thus allowing Serg and I to control the votes.
Challenges:
I’ve never once claimed to be a challenge Beast. I pulled one out when everyone least expected it. It was my only challenge win so I hardly expect to given any kind of pass based on this single achievement. I wanted to prove I was in fact worthy of all star status for SCWL. I have been running a business & moving throughout this entire game, even still I do not believe I was at fault for Ky’s losses pre-merge,

MICHAEL’S QUESTION

I would like you both to do 2 things for me

1: Rate your competitors. Every jury member MUST be on your list, and if you wish to include any or all pre-merge players, add them to your placements. 1=best player, 25=worst player. Use any criteria you see fit, and explain why they’re places there if you wish

2: compare your jury to actual survivor contestants, who did their playing style resemble, and why?

RENEE’S RESPONSE

Gloria: Deb Eaton – given the fact the I really didn’t get a chance to get to know you
Eamon: Shane Powers – Exile island – fierce player but can’t hold back emotions and words.
Moray: Ace Gordon from Gabon – Only because I did n’t get a chance to get to know you and being from the UK I imagine you have some sort of accent – I’m guessing yours is real.
Sheri: Nicole Delma Pearl Islands – one of the first out and largely forgotten
Jessica: Sylvia Kwan – Fiji Very technical but not strategic enough
KJ: Sandra Diaz Twine- Pearl Islands- becuase even though we didn’t actualluy play together I ‘ve been told your fierce and a go getter.
Jason: Alex Angarita
Dave: Burton Roberts
Heeral: Andrea Boehlke – Caramoan – Very likeable
Fiona : Ciera Eastin – Blood vs Water – I know you were a force to be reckoned with in your season.
Cameron: Johnny Fairplay – Pearl Islands – shady and playing both sides
Christian: Michael Skupin. Played hard, honst & didn’t get what you deserved.
Aaron: Rafe Judkins – Guatemala Greatest underestimated player of all time.
Leif: Alex Bell – Only because we didn’t speak very much if at all and I know your a good player.
Michael: Coach is the obvious answer but I’m going to say Johnathan Penner becuase you attempted to play both sides, you have a clear respect for the game & although I like Coach I think Penner is more savy, like you.
Lister: Stephen Fishbach – Tocantins – Silent killer and smart as hell. If you weren’t talking to me you were talking to someone else.
Naomi: Cirie Fields – Amazing social player with everyone.
Brian: Dave Ball – Samoa – to smart and cynical for your own good
Jeremy: John Cochran – Caramoan – Analytical to a T. You asked the toughest question.
Lyndsay: Trish Dunn – Pearl Islands – Nice girl, just didn’t even try to talk to me. Not sure why.
Efe: Edgardo Rivera – Fiji – Smooth as silk But I just couldn’t trust you
Sergiu: Vytas Baskauskas – Blood vs. Water – your determination and loyalty bonded us together. I felt like you were my brother.
Rudez: Abi-Maria Gomes – Philippines – I’ll give credit where credit is due. Congrats on your wins in your challenges . But I have no idea where your coming from with your social game. We could have remained aligned and gone to the end but we barely spoke. I have no clue what kind of game you were playing except you were playing for yourself and yourself alone.

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Aaron: Todd Herzog. I think you had in you to win this game, but luck was not in your side. You are very social and very smart.

Leif: Earl Cole. You are very quiet, at least with me. But quiet was good. You never gave any info, you just got a lot of info from others. I think you have the potential to win this game.

Michael: I really want to say coach… SO SCREW IT. I will say coach #pandering

Lister: Boston Rob. I think you get this game. You are good in all 3 aspects, but luck is not on your side just like boston rob in his early career.

Naomi: Candice Cody. I think you are not the most social player with the people who are not in your core alliance. I tried to talk to you a lot, but you never did. Which was a bummer because I wanted to play with you and heeral. I think you are great at challenges and you are very smart too.

Brian: I was between Boston Rob and Malcom Freberg, but Im gonna go with Malcom. In my opinion Malcom is an amazing player, the problems that he has is that he is so good in all 3 aspects of the game and no one wants to be against him in the finals 2.

Jeremy: Yul Kwon. In my opinion, you are mind blowing in challenges but Its also very likeable and strategical.

Lyndsay: Cirie Fields. After the merge I thought you were the favorite to win this game. you are likeable and smart. And just like me, you play under the radar, not winning challenges, but make has no problem to make the big moves.

Efe: Rob Cesternino. But better in challenges. You, just like me, had no problem in doing whatever It taked to win this game. The best quality in this game, imo, and that we both share is the ability of separete game with personal feelings.

Sergiu: Spencer(from Cagayan). I think, just like him, you were the dark horse, and maybe the americas favoritw to win this game. I dont think you got here because of immunity wins just like spencer, but you have the same game mentality imo. You are great in the social aspect, the physical and the strategical. Just like spencer you had a lot of bad luck but you were able to adapt and move foward.

Rudez: Parvati Shallow. In my opinion, you played a great game with the bad luck you had. You had a great social, physical and strategical game just like Parv. And just like her you love to make big moves with idols and make great television.

I truly believe that if you survive(even if it was just one more round than your fellow castmate) you played better than who didnt survivor for as long as you did. If you sleep and dont do nothing and wake up in the final 2, imo, u played this game better than the person who didnt survive. However, in the finals the jury has to look to the 2 games and vote for whoever they think played better. And thats the time to reward the best game.
This is my opinion for this game, this season. Of course, some of you guys that were voted out early are better than some who survived.

NAOMI’S QUESTION

So first of all, congratulations to the both of you for making it to the final 2. This is not the final 2 I expected to see nor what I really wanted to see, nonetheless you both made it and you deserve the credit for that.

**MARCELO DELETES A HIT AIMED AT NAOMI**

NAOMI’S RESPONSE

I replied generally the next day… because you only ever messaged me when I was asleep or at work… The last message I sent you, you didn’t read for 12 days…. 12! That’s a lot worse than 3. Seeing as you were the one who wanted to talk game I kinda thought you’d reply sooner. Or at least read the message sooner. You didn’t talk to me every round. Not even close. We spoke maybe 4 or 5 rounds all up. We were together a lot more than that. And none of it was game related. Mostly all Captain America.

The other game we didn’t talk much but that doesn’t mean I didn’t see how you were playing. We had mutual allies and allies talk.

RENEE’S RESPONSE

compared to every other player in this game…. Do you really think your game and how you played, deserves to be the winning gameplay of AllStars? I am humbled to have made it the final 2. My game was incredibly social and based on a lot of information I received from numerous players. I had a final 3 deal with Efe and Marcelo, I had Final 2 deals with Sergiu, Efe & Marcelo simultaneously. This allowed me to see what was going on from every possible angle at the end of the game and pretty much since the merge. Everything Rudez said to Sergui, he told me and everything I heard from Efe and Marcelo I told Sergiu.
Who are the 2 jurors who you think should have made the final 2 and why? If I am not a candidate I would choose Sergui and Rudez. If I am a candidate I would choose Sergui and myself.
And last but not least…. If this game was to start over again tomorrow… would you change how you played even knowing you make it to the end this way? If so why and how? I never anticipated I would make it to the end of this game Tbh. But I still played with everything I could muster. I think it was to my advantage actually being under the radar, in the middle of a move certainly didn’t help. But I’ve gone into games playing balls to the wall and it didn’t help me to win. If I could change anything it would be the timing of the challenges although out of my control ultimately.. it seemed every time a challenge began I was on the road or in the midst of a personal situation that demanded my attention. Believe me when I say That I would have been much more active if those circumstances alone were different. Thank you Naomi for your questions I hope I answered them all.

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

1-Yes, i think my game deserves to be the winning gameplay of all stars. My gameplay ( or my lack of gameplay) brought me to the finals with the only person that i have a shot to win. In the end of the day, you just need to have played better than the person who you are against in the finals, and i think i did. Of course a lot of you guys, played a stronger and bolder game than I did. However, none of you guys are in the finals. Its me vs dq, and its up to you guys to vote for who played the best game.

2- Brian and Sergiu. I think Brian gameplay is amazing. He is a perfect player, imo. The only thing that works against him is that he is too perfect and no one wants go to the finals with him. Sergiu surprised me the must. He made the moves when he had to and layed low when he had to. This game was his for the taken, but s— happens. Great gameplay.

3- i dont think i wouldnt change a thing because every mistake that i madr, in the end, probably helped me to get here. But if i have to say something, i would say i would not overplay the paranoid strategy. And let me say something about this bc i think people got the wrong impression. Im NOT saying i was not paranoid. I was probably the most paranoid person this season. For sure. What i said that, me telling people how much paranoid i was, was calculated. And i think i might have over done it.

sorry for beeing kinda rude yesterday with my answers. Im having personal problems in real life. And when i read your question and i felt i was not geting the credit i deserve, it was to much. Hope u read my answers

LYNDSAY’S QUESTION

It’s time for Lyndsay’s jury speech! Gather around the campfire, people!

Okay, welcome F2! This is actually a lot shorter than I wanted, so I guess you should consider yourselves lucky!

I don’t think I’ve made it any secret that I don’t really like or respect either of your games. I have played enough games to understand that you guys didn’t coast blindly throughout this game, you actually had a strategy… this I can see, but it doesn’t mean I have to like it. I am one of those people who will easily call you both useless goats. Yes, you got to the end, congrats! Seriously, you did what I could not do. I came into this game and was gunna coast through like you guys did, but then I got far enough that I realized I couldn’t win a game by doing nothing, or very little in your cases, and I wouldn’t WANT a win like that, personally, so I decided to make some plays and see where that got me. Yes, it got me voted out, but whatever, at least I did s—. I’m happy and proud of how I played, and I want to thank both of you for being part of this experience for me!

Anyway, I have a few questions for you guys!

Marcelo (and DQ if you feel like you can answer this), you and I have constantly spoken about GoT! I find that GoT and Survivor actually have a lot of similarities! What I want you to do is the following:

Compare me and my gameplay to any character in GoT and give me a detailed response to why you think this way and support it.

Compare yourself and your gameplay to any character in GoT and give me a detailed response to why you think this way and support it.

Marcelo, I am aware that you were A LOT more social than anybody in this game is giving you any credit for. You slimy little social whore Seriously, congrats there. So, as the typical person who is on the jury why you’re in the finals, I just wanna now how much of our friendship was you playing me? I know I certainly didn’t act it in this game since I was busy and committed to other things, but I can be a crazy social whore, and I know the ‘ins and outs’ of pretending to like somebody and pretending to buddy up to them all to your own personal advantage. I’ve done it, it happens, whatever. Still though, knowing how to do this and recognizing when somebody else is doing it to you is not the same, and I just wanna know if you played me this entire time or were you actually legit? Like, obviously you played me, but how much? Please, be honest here, a vote is on the line and I want the honest answer. You said earlier that you have no shame, so the truth, please!

DQ, you and I are not friends. We never spoke (my fault), so… why should I vote for you considering I see your game as no better than Marcelo’s? I pretty much see the two of you as playing a very similar game, but they differ slightly in the details, but overall, they’re the same in my eyes. I mean, I guess you never betrayed me, unlike everybody else that I considered myself aligned with, so you have THAT going for you, but I do want an answer from you of why I should vote for you considering we have no relationship.

Anyway, I don’t need you guys to convince me how great your games are. I’ve heard enough about that from the jury I’m stuck with. I’ll probably never respect your gamestyles, and I doubt after reading your responses I ever will. I’ve heard enough about your guys ‘amazing’ gameplay, so don’t bother trying to boost yourself in my eyes through your answers. Just answer my questions in enough detail for me to want to vote for one of you!

Again, congrats!

EDITOR’S NOTE: This question inspired Eamon’s current all star theme.

EDITOR’S NOTE #2: I haven’t seen season four yet. 😦

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

You remind me of Margaery Tyrell. Your personality and your gameplay. You guys are very social, and everyone wants be your friend. However, you use that for your advantage because just like Margaery you are veryyy smart and you are looking for the big prize.

I want to compare my gameplay to littlefinger. He is very likeable and Its on the backround almost all the time, so no one see he as a target. But in the end, you can see he was actualy very savvy and I was behind a lot of big moves. In my opinion, there are the players that want everyone to see how they are playing this bold and smart game all the time, and there are the good players. who bite their tongues and let other people take the credit and target to themselves.

Lyn, our friendship was 100% real. And if it wasnt , I would tell you because I would actualy be proud of faking it so well haha. You were probably my favorite person in this game, however, inn the time of the vote I dont put on consideration my personal feelings. I make the best move for my game, so It wasnt personal when i voted you out, It was just more hard.

LYNDSAY’S RESPONSE

Oh, thanks for taking the time to answer my question, Marcelo! Oddly enough, I think if anybody, you’re most similar to Pycelle. I know, maybe not what you wanna hear, but for starters, you’re willing to put on a crazy paranoid act to get others to think that you’re useless and harmless , similar to his old man act. Deep down, you’re a cut throat person (voting me out, your friend) to further yourself in the ‘game’, and you pretty much are willing to do whatever it takes to stay in the position you’re in, which is everybodies confident (well, except Tyrion, but he tried!). You never wanted to be a HBIC, and you never were… you were just the ‘useless’ person in the background that nobody ever paid attention to for the reasons stated above. I dunno, sounds more like Pycelle to me, even if you are a schemer like Littlefinger, Pycelle is a schemer too, the only difference is that Littlefinger WANTS to be a HBIC and WANTS people that wronged him to know that he is one powerful bitch, and you really acted that way to me. Yes, it’s the FTC, so of course you own every move that you can…. but I still see you more as the UTR Pycelle Oh, and I didn’t mean to call you ‘useless’ but when everybody thinks to the key players in GoT, nobody names Pycelle, yet he is still alive and kicking…. (no spoilers), so obviously he is doing something right. You were nnnnnever considered a threat, when you secretly had everything going your way. arcelo= Pycelle, not Littlefinger!

RENEE’S RESPONSE

as you stated I never had any communication with you the entire game so no I never back stabbed you and my style of game play was to lay low and stay loyal to those I could as the game played out. I still voted out Brian although Rudez and Brian played an idol on me to win back my favor.. I seriously would never have flipped at merge if Rudez remained loyal to the core Ky alliance. Yes it was an incredible amount of luck and I’m grateful for that. I didn’t really have my hands in a lot of pots to cut people after the merge. I had them in just enough pots to make it to the end such as Marcelo because I’m not sure any of us could beat Serg in the end.As far as the GoT question I don’t know you well enough to give this character distinction so this was a clearly a kind of biased question. it’s all good. you don’t know me either So I will say Brienne of Tarth becuase even though I don’t (yet) watch the show or preferably have read the books so the only character I dig gets bitch slaps a million times and that’s NOT how I imagine you would be on GoT.

SERGIU’S QUESTION

Hello, hello F2. Well I guess I have to congratulate both of you for making it the the f2, so well done! I am not the biggest fan of either of your games and I honestly am undecided for who to vote for. For starters I’d like to make two things clear: Marcelo, whoever I vote for, I want you to know that there are no hard feelings regarding the move you and Rudez pulled and it will not cause negative influence on my voting criteria, that probably earned u some extra points. And 2nd, Renee, although we are friends, and u know how much I you, I don’t want to and will not base my vote only on friendship. I need you to convince, not only me but the whole jury that your game was better than Marcelo’s. I will start with some coments and finish with the questions. Aaaand, here we go.

Marcelo: I have to say, I don’t really buy the fact that paranoia was your strategy all along, and I also have to say I don’t appreciate you saying “I gave it my best in every aspect of the game”. That’s bulls— in my eyes cuz you are probably the worst player who can participate in a challenge. I remember the challenge where we had to recognize monuments and u DIDN’T EVEN LOOk at the pictures… one of them had the exact monument that exists in your town, and had u made the effort to click on the picture u couldn’t have missed it. Also, I want to make it clear that the move you pulled on me… had ZERO chances of succeeding had it not been for Rudez. She was the key in making that move work. But enough negative aspects, lets say some positive stuff so u don’t think I’m such a bad guy… lol You played a great game, under the radar wise. I had no idea you were this good with words because of your stupid TC answers(which also annoyed me sometimes, lol). You used what u had to its fullest and apparently it worked out great, cuz hey, you are in the f2, and im on the jury.
My questions for you is, do you honestly feel like your game was better than mine? Better than Rudez? Better than Jeremys? Because we all fought way harder than you had to fight. We weren’t put in the situations to just go along with plans. We had to navigate around moves and players to survive votes. I want str8 answers here. Cuz the second you bulls— me with “I made it here and you didn’t” , is the second I vote Renee. Also, had I told you I was voting Rudez, and had I told the same to Renee, how would the tribal have ended?

Renee: I have to say, that if someone would have told me at the merge that you would make f2, I would have laught in his/hers face. I mean you beat the odds. I feel like many of the jurors overlook he fact that you were LOYAL as hell… people flipped on you, so u flipped on them and STAYED with those who u promised u would stay. I think that is a great thing provided the fact that even with Co you had very slim chances of making f2. But then, here you are. F2!. So I do think people are not giving you enough credit for getting this far, just wanted to point that out. I feel like u too played a bad bad bad challenge game. Altho you did finish strong by beating the badassest player in this game (challenge wise). Its said that it doesn’t matther how u start, but how u finish, and u finished strong. So I do feel like you somehow made up for that bad game u had before f5, You are a very likable player and you used it to its fullest, just like Marcelo, but is social enough to win the game?
My question for you is to make me belive you didn’t just rely on your social skills, tell me what moves you made that got you this far. Tell me how your game overshadows Marcelos. And also, this is a yes or no question, and I don’t want any details. Had I voted rudez, and she would have left… At f3 would you have taken Marcelo or Me with you to f2?

Together! If you thought that was it, you were wrong…. What I want you two to do, is tell every singe Jury member why they deserve to be an All Star, but iI’d like you to add the reason why they would never deserve to win this game, but you do.

Closing in I’d like to say that I loved playing this game with all of you, it was an amazing experience and Logan, Hats off to the most crazy and insane host I’ve ever met…. You surely didn’t make things easy

P.S I will take a page out of Eamon’s book and ask you two to answer your questions with VIDEOS!! Thank you

Ah, I almost forgot…. Please describe every jury member, and Logan, with and adjective Just one. that u think describes them best And that you can do as comments, cuz ill need a print screen to have what to fake paint later

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Thanks for the questions, Sergiu.
First, I would like to say I didnt say once that my paranoia was fake. Because It wasnt. I was very paranoid this entire game. However I used that in my advantage. Its up to you to believe or not, but you will se that I talked about this in my confessionals.
Second, I have no shame of not doing the individual challenges. I think Its a great move to not put a target on my back. So I did gave my best in every aspect of the game, It just happened that my game was to throw every single challenge( AGAIN, Im not saying I would win if I had tried. But the fact is I didnt want to win).
Third, you are not giving me enough credit in your boot episode. The move would had ZERO chances of suceding if there is no rudez and would had ZERO chances of succeding withought me. We came up with this plan TOGETHER. And if I hadnt talked to rudez for the whole week showing her that I wanted to go to the final 2 with her, and that you and dq were unbreakable, she wouldnt have agreed to make the move. If i hadnt make dq realize she would not have a chance in the end with you, she would have told me that you were self voting, and she wouldnt have talked to you about keeping me over rudez. If i was not talking to you all day about how much paranoid I was that would be me(even knowing I wouldnt go because neither dq nor rudez were voting for me) you would have self voted because you would think something fish was going on.

SERGIU’S RESPONSE

I dont care about the plan, what i am saying is that it had 0 chances of succedeeng had it been any other player. Rudez and i became good friends, and i would have never selfvoted for another person…. and it would have been a tie and rudez still would have left. So all credit for that move, in my eyes goes to her

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Yes, I agree. But if u read my answer, I said that It wouldnt have worked without ME also. I know It wouldnt have worked if it was anyone else besides Rudez, but It was Rudez. And WE did the move. The point is that if i hadnt work on rudez the whole week she wouldnt make that move with me. If you dont agree… Im sorry, but Im very pround of this move.

QUESTIONS:
Yes, I think my game was better than everyone that didnt make the finals. I already talked about that in the michael question (and you liked, so u must agree with me). That If im here, and you guys are not, I did something (or got lucky, which is part of the game) right.

– If you would have told me that you were voting rudez and had told dq the same thing, I would have still voted for you and make a tie. For 2 reason, 1- There was a chance you were lying. And 2-If you had voted for rudez, my vote wouldnt matter. And II knew dq would chose me over you, the next vote anyway.

And when you were voted out, DQ sent me a message that she could kiss me.lol. She said she was so happy with my move, and that she was afraid of voting you out. That she would have done it(she said she would use the excuse that you wanted to make a tie with rudez-??) but It would have been so hard for her. She was thankfull I did the dirty work for her. My point is that I respect players who are not afraid to make big moves and get blood on their hand, that dont make a lame excuse to vote a friend out. I voted a lot of my friends out, and I owned. And Im proud of it. Its very easy to be this loyal player that everyone is saying she is, when you dont talk to everyone and you give lame excuses so you can betrayal someone so u could say you were loyal.

RENEE’S RESPONSE

Yes Serg my intention was to take Marcelo to the F2. I had no choice , I couldn’t beat you. None of us could beat you – even Rudez I will add. and as hard as that would have been it was my only shot at winning. I am however happy I didn’t have to do it. So yes Marcelo’s move allowed me that one saving grace. I you to but friendships aside I don’t think you or anyone anticipated my winning the last challenge. I think everyone assumed Rudez would win and take you.The Jury loves you and i think we all knew this. ..

Serg, to answer your yes or no question, I would have taken Marcelo to F2.
The moves I made specifically before I found out I couldn’t trust Ky to be Loyal were solidifying Final 2’s with Rudez ( although I had a feeling she wasn’t sincere ) and I also made an F2 alignment with Christian who was subsequently voted out right after that was established.This was to be my true F2 ally so I was naturally furious. He had done nothing to deserve being voted out.
Rudez told me at this point – Merge – That I was slated to go as per the opposing tribes decision and she had no control & her hands were tied. So in one fail swoop she informed me our F2 was in fact a sham and we had an exchange of words that was nothing less than brutal. She made a huge mistake by telling I was going,so at that TC I called her out regarding her disloyalty and made it clear my vote was up for grabs and I would be loyal in voting with them even if it meant I was at the bottom. I flipped with the assistance of Naomi and she and I skyped. I then learned it was Rudez suggestion that I be voted out to Co. So not only did she make the mistake of telling me Co targeted me ( a blatant lie ) but she gave me plenty of time to secure an agreement that moving forward all my future votes and loyalties would be with Naomi and brought me into the fold of the others the best she could.
I do regret The voting out of Lister as I promised Naomi I wouldn’t. But again, Lister and I never spoke. If he wasn’t talking to me he was obviously talking and strategizing with someone else. I had to vote with the majority but had we communicated I might have understood given the numbers that had he stayed Naomi wouldn’t have been voted out the following TC when I was certain Rudez being vulnerable for the first time was the obvious choice to vote out.
This is when it became clear that Brian and Rudez had to be separated. They had ties with many players and were influencing the game more than as least I had anticipated.
It was also around this time Serg and I bonded. In fact Efe and Marcelo and I created an alliance of three and I suggested Serg as a forth. So we had the silent killer alliance of 4 and a thread, in addition Efe Marcelo and I had a separate alliance of three. I made F2 deals separately with all four of them. Serg continued talking to Rudez & Lyndsay & we shared all the information we were getting from everyone.
So when Brian left and Rudez responded irrationally, clearly upset with everyone – it was obvious this was where her true loyalty was with to all of us.
So having made so many alliances I was able to have an advantage that many others didn’t. Winning challenges was never my strong suit. I did in fact try to win them. It isn’t like I didn’t make an effort whatsoever. I don’t expect winning the final challenge somehow makes up for all the rest either. But I did finally win one and that was the one I was just shy of participating in in SCWL 4 that I was truly looking forward to.
Marcelo’s game was in many ways more lucky than mine. Taking out Serg at F4 was only possible because I told him Serg had decided to self vote. I never thought that would be the outcome but I will say that it was the best move he could have made.Yes I was (in a way) happy because to vote out Serg would have bean heartbreaking and now I wouldn’t have to.
I sincerely enjoyed the bonds that we made and enjoyed playing this game with all of you. I also feel blessed to be in the F2. I definitely worked for it even if you don’t respect the way i came to be here.
LOGAN: WACKY
Sergiu: Genuine
Rudez: Selfish
Brian: Confident
Naomi: Sincere
Jeremy: Determined
Lister: Quiet
Michael: Clever
Aaron: unpredictable
Lief: misled
Lyndsy: Mute
Efe: Misunderstood
Sergiu: You are an All Star having made it to the F2 of your season. No question you deserve to be here. Also no question you are deserving to win had you made it to the end. The only reason you would be undeserving was my relentless insistence that none of us could beat Rudez in the Finals. I also had to remind you again and again that I had just won this last challenge so that we could finally take her out of the game and was all that effort for nothing if she didn’t go that round (at F4) Had you voted her out I would have had to make the most difficult decision thus far and in fact voted you out unless You and Marcelo had done this to me.
Michael: You are a powerhouse player for certain. No doubt all stars wouldn’t be complete without you. The fact that I lasted and in fact made it to the end I think proves I deserve to win over you.
Rudez: You obviously played very hard in your original season. you made a lot of big moves but I will just say that the reason I deserve to win over you was your lack of loyalty in both games it seems this rang true. Also repeatedly calling me a liar when you back-stabbed countless people for no real reason than to get further and lose the trust of others. Your challenge skills are amazing girl though I will give you props for that. I also never expected you would vote serg out.
Brian: A clear front runner and favorite to win season 2 but unfortunately winning immunities quick targeted you early in the game. An obvious all star even so. The reason I can say I deserve to win over you would simply be that you aligned with the wrong person at the start of the game.
Lister : 7th place in season two isn’t to shabby at all.I think you know the only reason I can say I deserve to win over you is because we did not communicate. Had we spoken, things may have been different.
Lyndsay: I have great respect for the game you played your first season I understand the high school mentality you described. I know you made big moves. You are definitely deserving as an all star. The only reason I would say youi don’t deserve to win over me was your lack of communication with me when it seemed so very important the first time you played this game.
Efe: Fifth place goddesss definitely earns you an all stars spot. I can say the reason you don’t deserve to win over me was because you told me the only way I could win a challenge was if Andrew from my season logged on to my account to do it for me. So I had to prove you wrong.
Lief: Your another person I didn’t have an opportunity to really talk to at length. I’m guessing your alliance with Rudez is my only reason I would say I deserve to win over you as she clearly had no loyalty to anyone but Brian.
Naomi – Clearly a power player in your season and rightly so. Fake idols, mutiny triggers. You deserved your spot as an all star.The only survivor attribute I would say would allow me to win over you was that I outlasted you.
Jeremy: Indeed you also were a power player in your season, fake idols, 8th member of the jury, Very impressive. I can only say I deserve to win over you because we never bonded enough for me to take you further in the game.
Aaron: As i believe your the only representation from the first season that qualifies you as an all star. That being said I’m not lying when I said that my core alliance said you wanted me out first after joining our tribe. I have no reason to lie about this whatsoever. So This being said I didn’t necessarily converse with you the way I would have liked to. I thought we would be really tight in this game. If there is any reason I deserve to win over you this would be it.

MARCELO’S RESPONSE

Hey guys. I had a great time playing this game. Thanks!
I played this game the best that i could, and i think i deserve the win.

***

Okay. Jury (those of you who have yet to vote anyway), it is now time to have your final say. You are voting for a winner, and that winner will either be Renee or Marcelo. We have played this game for over three months, and the eleven of you will commit the final act.

Never before has there been so much information and so many events in a single game for you to evaluate the actions taken by this Final Two. I have a feeling this is not only a tough decision for most of you, but knowing how much time and energy each of you have put into this game, it is also a decision you have not taken lightly.

Jury, for the last time in your SCWL career, it is time to vote. You’re up.
