Previously on Survivor...
- Following the blindside of Annie, tensions only grew more for the No Collars.
Naeha (rolling her eyes): Kayden, you’re a very inexperienced, immature, offensive little man. I feel sincerely bad for you.
Kayden (laughing): All I did was make a joke. Why are you making me out to be the devil or something?
Naeha (agitated): Because it’s offensive --- and you choose to ignore that fact.
Kayden (to Naeha): Comedy is subjective. You can’t start policing what people say, because that is ---something I’m sure people like you would be proud to have in our society today.
- And after a reward challenge throw, it seemed like the No Collars were not going to succeed at anything.
Dan: You put your beliefs on wanting to, quote unquote, “save the chickens”, over providing us with the right nutrition. And as much as you may not need to eat protein, the rest of us do. We’re not all 62 years old.
- But the White Collars were in a bind of their own.
Candice (standing up): What’s wrong?
Michael (yelling): Mother <expletive>!
Candice (confused): What’s wrong?
Michael (kicking the sand in anger): I put my <expletive> ass on the line to provide for this tribe! I provided this team with soap, buckets, and towels, and you don’t give me a <expletive> thumbs up even! (points to Jee) I’m <expletive> fed up with your <expletive> no-good, lazy ass, son of a bitch attitude, you little <expletive>!
- And at Tribal Council, it was anything but cordial.
Michael (nodding his head): She ended up taking me to my room, and she (breathes heavily)... she pretty much demanded that I... that I (bleeped out due to graphic sexual speech).
Jeff Probst (to Michael): What did you say after that?
Michael (looking up at the sky): I told her "No, I'm not ready for this. It's not right for me."
Jeff Probst: But she did it anyways.
Michael (nodding his head): Yeah. (Andrea covers her mouth in shock)
Jeff Probst (to Michael): Did you tell authorities at all or did you keep this to yourself?
Michael (gulping): I kept this to myself. I thought nobody would really believe me, (wiping a tear from his eye) So, I just remained calm.
Brian (to Jeff Probst): I think he should toughen up a little bit over this. I mean, a girl found you attractive. I personally, would've taken it to be honest with you.---Mike, I love ya man, but I think you --- were just lucky..
Jee (to Brian): In what world would you say someone who was raped is "lucky"?!
Brian (to Jee): I mean, it's sad to say, but I believe in the double standard. It's just my personal belief, that if a woman wants to, you know, do things with you, why would you turn her advances down?!
Jee (to Brian): Because the double standard doesn't <expletive> exist!
- Despite Brian being under fire for his remarks against Michael, it was Michael who took the fall from grace, and he was voted out.
Jeff Probst: Michael... the tribe has spoken.
- 14 are left... who will be voted out TONIGHT?
Immunity Challenge: Shoulder the Load
Three members from each tribe will have a pole across their shoulders. Each round, weight (20 lbs.) will be added to that pole. The decision about which tribe member gets the weight will be made by the other tribe. When the weight becomes too much to bear, the tribe member will drop the pole and be out of the challenge. Last person left standing wins reward for their tribe.
White Collar Tribe - Night 10
Gloomy music is being heard in the background and the five remaining members of the White Collar Tribe are heading back to their camp, torch in hand. As Andrea, Brian, Brooke, and Candice place their torches near the shelter, Jee angrily places his torch in the sand. It is clear Jee is disgusted by what he saw at Tribal Council.
|“||First Tribal Council, and I was left in the dark. I knew Michael was gonna go home, and I would’ve been more than happy to write his name down, but after the stunt Brian pulled, I decided to send a vote Candice’s way. Brian is a disgusting human being for saying what he said, and I’m not going to hold that back. I think it’s wrong what he said, and the fact that he still justifies it, just pisses me off. I want nothing to do with Brian in this game after that, and anyone who follows him is going to be guilty by association.||”|
Jee is still standing up and stretching before he decides to address Brian.
Jee (to Brian): Brian, you don’t mind if I be frank with you, do I?
Brian (shaking his head): No, that’s fine.
Jee (to Brian): Okay, um… you’re full of <expletive>
Brooke & Andrea, who were going to get in the shelter look at an angered Jee and Brian. Brian nods his head in disappointment at Jee’s statement.
Brian (nodding his head): Okay.
Jee (irritated): Are you really gonna sit here and tell me that what you said was right?!
Brian (to Jee): I mean, I wanted to make it clear why I said what I said. I’d be appreciative if you’d express your acknowledgement of my opinion.
Jee (shaking his head): So, you’re gonna tell me that a woman is incapable of raping a man. Is that what you’re telling me?
Brian (nodding his head): I believe so, yes.
Jee is visibly furious at what Brian’s response was.
Jee (to Brian): So, let me ask you this. Michael was a virgin, and he got his virginity stolen by a girl, when he didn’t want to consent. If that your wife in that scenario, and a man purposefully stole her virginity without her consent, would you consider calling that “rape”?
Brian (nodding his head): In that case, I would.
Jee (agitated): Then what <expletive> difference does it make for a man to be raped?!
Brian (to Jee): Because most men have more of a sexual desire to be taken advantage of by other women.
Jee (taken aback): Are you <expletive> me?!
Brian (to Jee): Please let me finish. If a woman was to be raped by a man, then I would sympathize with her, because the woman should be able to consent before engaging in a sexual activity with a man. But when a woman wants to sexually engage with a man, I don’t see any scenarios in which a man would possibly want to say ‘No, I’m good.’
Jee (to Brian): Jesus <expletive> Christ, Brian! You’re a superintendent for <expletive> sakes, you should be aware of sexual assault occurring in schools! You really don’t see any scenario in which a woman can possibly rape anyone?!
Brian (shaking his head): No, sir.
Jee (agitated): Wow, I don’t think I’ve met someone as one-dimensional as you before.
|“||I’ve been a Criminal Profiler for 15 years, and I’ve dealt with a lot of cases of rapists and murderers. Only one murderer I ever profiled was a woman, and she was executed in 2013. Every rapist I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve met about 900 or more rapists in my 15 year span, have been male, and, granted many of them have raped other men before. I am not saying a man can’t be raped, but I truly don’t believe there has really been any case in which a girl has been physically capable of sexually assaulting a man. I understand why Jee might be upset, but in all honesty, it’s hard for me to waver on my opinion.||”|
Jee (to Brian): You really need to be fired, and I’m not joking. You are seriously a disgusting human being for saying what you said, and I really hope you burn in hell.
Brian (nodding his head): I understand, Jee.
Jee (to Brian): Just shut the <expletive> up, I don’t wanna talk to you.
Jee proceeds to walk back to the shelter whilst Brian is laying down near the sand. Nobody even acknowledges Brian after the argument.
|“||Whatever Jee believes is up to him, and whatever I believe is up to me. Personal conflicts aside, I believe I’m in the majority on this tribe. The person I’m gunning for at the moment is Candice, because I believe she will be more socially threatening to me, than Jee would be. So, I would hope that if we end up going back to Tribal, myself, Andrea, and Brooke, would be able to successfully get rid of Candice next. That would be my Plan A at the moment.||”|
Candice is smiling, but hiding her smile underneath the blankets that her tribe won at the third immunity challenge. She is excited to see that there is dysfunction between what she thought was the majority alliance.
|“||When Jee started lashing out on Brian, I was elated. I believe what Brian said was embarassing, and shouldn’t have been said. And I’m hoping Andrea & Brooke see that, because I want Brian out of here. He’s, by far, the ringleader, and he’s also a threat to my game in terms of strategic and physical abilities. When it comes down to it, I’m here to win for myself and only myself. And after this Tribal Council, I think you’re about to see the Devil Woman show up in this game.||”|
White Collar Tribe
The sun begins to rise upon the Hayato camp on Day 11. All five remaining members of the White Collar Tribe are awake and alert. Brooke is sweeping up the camp, whilst Candice is tending the fire. Brian begins to address Andrea & Jee.
Brian (standing up): I’m gonna fill up my canteen, any of you want some?
Andrea (shaking her head): I’m good, thanks.
Brian walks away whilst we see a stern Jee looking at the fire, which is being tended by Candice.
|“||Last Night, without question; was the worst night I ever had in this game. I lost a friend, that being Brian, and I have no respect for him anymore. Brian has been gung ho in getting me, Andrea, and Brooke, to get out Michael & Candice, but I’m not stupid. I know his intentions are to benefit himself, and he’ll be willing to put anyone’s name down in a heartbeat to save his ass. So, I’m not going down easily.||”|
Jee & Andrea are laying by the shelter, and Jee sits up to talk to Andrea.
Jee (to Andrea): You mind if I bring something up for a quick second?
Andrea (to Jee): No, go right ahead.
Jee (to Andrea): Okay, (taking deep breath) don’t panic over this.
Andrea raises an eyebrow in concern.
Jee: Brian, I believe, is playing both sides.
Andrea (shaking her head): What do you mean?
Jee (to Andrea): Right before we went to Tribal last night, Brian talked with Candice & I about the vote. Brian obviously wanted to get rid of Mike, but he then brought up your name.
Andrea (confused): Again?
Jee (nodding his head): Yeah. He told us that after Mike got voted out, it would be him, myself, and Candice in the “majority” and we’d get rid of Andrea next.
Andrea (annoyed): Did he say anything remotely racist?
Jee (shaking his head): He did not. He was telling us about his plan to “take over the tribe and vote Andrea out”.
(camera flashes back to Day 10 when Brian, Candice, and Jee are talking after the Immunity Challenge)
Brian (to Candice): We haven’t talked in a while, but I don’t really want to take Andrea nor Brooke into the Final 3. They’re both way too threatening in my opinion. If I were to get rid of Michael now, it would give us the perfect opportunity, you, myself, and Jee; to get rid of Andrea next, and take a 3-2 advantage over the tribe.
Candice (stunned): You really mean that?
Brian (nodding his head): I’m dead serious right now.
(camera goes back to Jee & Andrea talking in the present day)
Andrea (floored): I cannot believe he’d say that.
Jee (to Andrea): You can tell him right now, because at this point, I’m done dealing with his bullsh*t.
Andrea (to Jee): Thanks for letting me know Jee.
Jee (getting out of the shelter): No problem. I’m gonna head off to see Tree Mail for today.
Andrea (smiling): Alrighty.
Jee smiles back at Andrea and then simply walks away to the end of the beach. Andrea has an annoyed look on her face.
|“||Allegedly speaking, there was a plot to get me out after Mike, and the only person who’d actually consider voting for me, I believe, would be Brian. I believe Jee 100%, because with his life on the line in this game, throwing Brian’s name under the bus and slandering him would only make things worse for him, and Jee is FAR from unintelligent. So, I know Brian is at the center of it all, and I’m going to call him out on it.||”|
Brian comes back to camp with his canteen in hand. He addresses Andrea.
Brian (getting back into the shelter): 11 day old water, Bon Appetit.
Andrea (to Brian): I think they only say that for food, not for drinks.
Brian (shrugging his shoulders): I don’t know all that fancy French crap. I’m a Texan at heart, so we just eat burgers, fries and all that stuff.
Andrea looks up at Brian, who stops talking.
Andrea (to Brian): I know exactly what you’re doing.
Brian looks over at Andrea, confused.
Andrea: ... and it’s not going to work. You’re not only putting a bigger target on your back, but on anyone whom you aligned with so far.
Brian (confused): What the hell are you talking about?
Andrea (to Brian): I’ve been told by someone, and I’m not going to name names, that you, Candice, and Jee, were planning to get me out at the next Tribal.
Brian (shaking his head): I never said that. On my momma, I never said that.
Andrea (raising an eyebrow): Don’t lie to me, Brian.
Brian (shaking his head): I am not lying to you Andrea. I never put your name out for elimination... EVER.
Andrea (to Brian): So all this stuff that I’m hearing of is a figment of my imagination?
Brian: Someone must’ve been lying to you.
Andrea (frustrated): Brian, I know that the three of you were talking before Tribal. And you guys were like, “If Mike gets voted out, we’re gonna control the tribe and blindside Andrea next.” I’m not stupid, I know you believe you have the numbers to get me out.
Brian (shaking his head): I don’t believe that. Even if I wanted to get you out, I wouldn’t have the numbers in the first place considering Jee hates my guts right now.
Andrea (to Brian): You can’t say you haven’t thought of it though, because multiple people have told me that you’ve been gunning for me from the get-go.
Brian (to Andrea): Andrea, if I was to have the numbers, I’d take advantage of it and get rid of Candice. If I had my way in the next Tribal Council, Candice would be going home because she’s weak and untrustworthy.
Andrea (curious): So you believe Candice was the one who told me this?
Candice is still tending the fire, but neither her or Brooke can hear the conversation going on between Brian & Andrea.
|“||So Andrea found out about me having a chat with Jee & Candice about getting her out. I could say either Jee or Candice would be responsible for telling her this, as Jee wants to bury me six feet under, and Candice is desperately trying to stay alive. I believe it would’ve been Candice, because in my opinion, Jee would be foolish to tell Andrea what we were talking about. Candice & Jee are snakes to me now, and I don't trust them. Now I have to do some more damage control, and it is not going to be pleasant.||”|
Andrea Is rocking back and forth in the shelter, still talking to Brian.
Andrea (sternly): We both know that you discussed getting me out with Jee and Candice. I’m not going to tell you who told me, and it would be stupid for you to ask. Because you’d automatically be guilty by default.
Brian (facepalming himself): Jesus Christ, Andrea. I’m getting tired of this.
Andrea looks at Brian with a surprised expression.
Andrea (to Brian): You are really rude sometimes.
Brian (shaking his head): That’s your opinion.
Andrea: No, that’s factual. You sat there at Tribal last night berating Michael for no reason, and then you’re sitting her lying to my face, that you didn’t try to get me out of the game last night.
Brian (shaking his head): I did not lie. I swear on my momma’s grave, I did not lie to you Andrea.
Andrea (to Brian): You’re trying to invoke fear upon everyone, and you act like you’re this badass. What kind of man, sits there and cowardly makes fun of a guy who got RAPED, and says he was <expletive> lucky?
Brian: I don’t have any power in this game, considering the majority of people hate my guts.
Andrea (annoyed): Oh my gosh, Brian shut the <expletive> up.
Brian raises his eyebrows in annoyance at Andrea.
Andrea (to Brian): Just shut your mouth for like thirty seconds, and let me <expletive> speak.
Brian (to Andrea): The floor’s yours.
Andrea: I gave you an opportunity to take back what you said, and admit you <expletive> up, and you didn’t because you didn’t want to hurt your poor little ego.
Andrea begins getting out of the shelter in agitation.
Andrea (to Brian): You may have physical prowess, but your social game is complete garbage. If you win the million dollars, I will probably shoot myself, because literally ANYONE else in this game, would be a more deserving winner that you would be. And that is a fact.
Brian (to Andrea): I don’t think you’re any better sweetheart. If I were you, I’d keep a low profile and stop trying to cause drama that doesn’t exist. I never asked Jee to vote you out, and I never asked Candice to vote you out either. You have a lot of growing up to do if you’re going to believe someone who is siding with the opposition.
Andrea (walking away): Well Brian, there’s a good saying that rings true to us. I am rubber, and you are glue.
Andrea walks away in agitation, whilst Brian takes a deep breath and lays back down in the shelter.
Brian (talking to himself): She is not making it any easier for herself.
Tribe Switch Reveal
We see three mats; one green, one yellow, and one red, before we see Jeff Probst. We are near a beach, and he is holding a basket, which he puts down next to him. Intense music is playing in the background.
Jeff Probst (raising his voice): Come on in guys!!!
The first tribe to emerge from the distance is the Blue Collar Tribe, which is being led by Mikey. They head to their yellow mat; and they are followed by the No Collar Tribe, being led by Naeha. After the No Collars are on their red mat, we see the White Collars coming in, with Brooke holding the tribe’s flag.
Jeff Probst: Blue Collars and No Collar Tribes, taking a look at the new White Collar tribe... Michael, voted out at the last Tribal Council.
Nobody is really stunned to see Michael gone, as many people are nodding their head, expecting the White Collars to vote off their oldest member.
Jeff Probst (nodding his head): Naeha, you’ve been living with the same people for the last 11 days. How much do you think you have bonded with these people you’ve been living with?
Naeha (to Jeff Probst): I think overall, we’ve blended really well despite our difference. There have been times where we’ve not gotten along, but I believe we’re a good family right now.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): Mikey, what about you? What do you think about your tribe?
Mikey: I’m gonna second what that girl said over there (points to Naeha), we genuinely get along, despite our vast differences on different views of the world and other mumbo jumbo like that.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): What would happen if you were to meet more people with different view of the world?
Mikey (smiling): I think that would be exciting. I like meeting new people, Jeff.
Jeff Probst (smiling back): Well that’s about to become a reality. Ladies and Gentlemen ... drop your buffs.
Many contestants are surprised, with Kayden smirking at his tribemates, and Dan shouting an expletive in shock.
Jeff Probst (nodding his head): Yes, we are switching tribes.
The contestants are visibly shocked to be switching tribes after only eleven days into the game.
|“||I was stunned at the fact that we were changing things up. I believed I had control of the game at that point, with Kayden & Geraldine on one side, and Naeha & Tang on the other. It was probably the best position. The fact that I’m going to have to change my entire game plan is not only frustrating but really concerning for me, considering that I had most of the power on Saeki.||”|
Jeff Probst: I’m going to hand you a basket consisting of 14 buffs. They are covered to avoid you choosing your choice of a tribe. You guys will be divided into two tribes of seven, and you will either receive a red or a green buff.
Albert nods his head, knowing that the Blue Collar Tribe was probably going to be dissolved following the swap.
Jeff Probst (heading towards the White Collar tribe’s mat): You guys can start first.
One by one everyone retrieves a covered buff from the basket, and everybody is anxious to find out what tribe they will be heading to. Soon enough, all the remaining contestants have picked out one buff, and then Jeff heads back to where he was originally was.
Jeff Probst (raising his voice): Alright, everybody reveal your buffs, and head to your respective mats.
Everyone complies to Jeff’s request, and here are who will be on the new tribes.
|New Hayato Tribe|
|New Saeki Tribe|
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): Mikey, how does it feel to know you’re with a group of new people now?
Mikey (chuckling): I’m excited to see what the game brings me, Jeff. And ya know, we seem to got some strong fellas on our tribe, and I’m hopin’ perhaps I can find a few cracks maybe, so I can fit in with the crowd, if you know what I mean.
|“||You can call me crazy, but I’m not entirely upset about this new tribe I’m on. I mean, I got my good pal Al with me, so it’s not all bad, and I got my closest friend (holds up idol) My Hidden Immunity Idol, in case anyone decides to go after me. Also, the fellas on our tribe, especially the dark haired guy and the Asian dude, seem like real strong men and I think that might go well. Hopefully I’ll be able to remember everyone’s names before we get to the next challenge (laughing)||”|
Jeff Probst (to Brian): Brian, what about you? What’s your first impressions on the tribe you’re now on?
Brian (nodding his head): I’m excited to see what awaits me. I think Mikey said it best, in that although we’re going to have to meet new people, we’ll be working together, and meeting new people isn’t going to be a bad thing, especially when it comes to those who need to stay alive right now in the game.
Jeff Probst (nodding his head): Alright. The green tribe will consist of; Rachel, Brian, Brooke, Christine, Dan, Andrea, and Tang. Your name is HAYATO.
The Hayato tribe nods their head in satisfaction.
Jeff Probst (to Saeki): The red tribe will consist of Mikey, Albert, Candice, Jee, Geraldine, Naeha, and Kayden. Your name is SAEKI.
The Saeki tribe nods their head in satisfaction.
Jeff Probst: Alright, you guys will head back to your camp now. Any personal belongings from an individual who moved tribe’s will be waiting for them at their current tribe. The game has changed, once again. I’ll see you at the next Immunity Challenge. Until then, get to know your new tribe members.
|“||My worst nightmare is finally coming to life. I’m with the two people I wanted to get rid of the absolute most! I’m going to have to suck it up, and actually make relationships, because I am not going down without a fight. I know Geraldine & Kayden will be throwing my name under the bus, so I’m going to be doing the same to them. Hopefully, the rest of the tribe members see what I’m seeing, because I’m screwed if not.||”|
|“||I expected to switch tribes today, but I didn’t expect the news to be THIS good. I’m on a tribe with Geraldine, who’s the only one I trusted on Saeki, and I’m on a tribe with four new people that I’m facing off against, and I have the chance to woo them over. Naeha, it’s been nice knowing you, but if I need to take out the trash, you’re gonna have to be sent to the garbage can. Maybe you won’t play me in Survivor chess again.||”|
Happy music is playing in the background as we cut from a commercial break into the seven new members of the Hayato tribe heading to their camp. This camp was initially the White Collar Tribe’s camp, but it is now Hayato. Everyone sets their belongings down and begins to chat. They are all in elation at the fact that they have met new faces.
Brooke (smiling): Welcome to our camp guys.
Christine (nodding her head): It looks so amazing.
Brian (chuckling): That’s what four consecutive challenge wins will do to us.
Many contestants laugh at Brian’s statement as we cut to a confessional from Brooke.
|“||I think it’s very interesting how the swap turned out. We have three original White Collars, being myself, Andrea, and Brian. We have Christine & Rachel; they are the Blue Collar ladies. And we got the No Collar men, Dan & Tang. I think we have a very diverse group of people. And having a 3-2-2 advantage on the tribe doesn’t hurt. I feel we’re definitely more physically dominant than the other tribe, and I can’t wait to see what happens next! (smiling)||”|
Brian (smiling): Do we want to do a little tour or should we introduce ourselves?
Brooke (to Brian): I think we relatively know each other, so I think we can give the guys a tour if you don’t mind.
Dan (nodding his head): I’m fine with that.
|“||Coming to Hayato, I definitely expected it to be the more luxurious of the camps, given that the No Collars have normally gotten second place in roughly every challenge. The people are going to be complicated, as I’m stuck with only Tang. Do I trust him? Not really. I think Tang can be a wildcard, and he might want to use his emotions to play the game over his intelligence, and that could be a problem when it’s time to vote. But I want to keep things slow and steady, and try not to make waves. That’s what I’ve been doing this entire game, so I hope I can continue to do just that.||”|
Brooke (to the tribe): When it comes to food, usually I make rice in the morning, and then Jee would make dinner. However, since Jee’s not on this tribe anymore, would anyone be interested in being the chef for dinner?
Christine (raising her hand): I’d be more than happy to cook for dinner.
Brooke (smiling): Perfect. You can obviously see where we live (laughing), and ---
Dan (smiling whilst being sarcastic): You don’t say!
Brooke giggles at Dan, and playfully punches the Model on his shoulder.
Andrea (addressing the tribe): Is anyone interested in having one of the chickens for lunch today?
Dan (to Andrea): I don’t see a problem, but Tang might.
Andrea (confused): How come?
Tang (to Andrea): I’m a vegan. I’ll probably have some rice if that’s fine, but you guys can certainly have your chicken if you would prefer.
Rachel (to Tang): How long have you been a vegan?
Tang (to Rachel): Wow, for almost 50 years actually.
Brian (shocked): You’ve gone 50 years without having milk or meats?
Tang (to Brian): Well, I have soy milk, which is not animal product, if that counts as milk. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was a little boy.
Christine (to Tang): What happened that made you want to become vegan?
Tang (to Christine): I prefer not to talk about it right now.
Christine (nodding her head): I think that’s understandable. We’ll be here for you, buddy.
The rest of the tribe nods their head as we see Brian strategically looking at his tribemates.
|“||Getting to the swap is probably the best thing to happen to me, and it’s only better that I’m with Brooke. Andrea, I believe is still trustworthy, but it might take a little bit of time for her to realize that working with me is her best option. My goal at the moment, is to build a solid alliance with the people who need someone to work with. If I can provide the trust that they need, they’ll be able to trust me enough to keep me around.||”|
Walking to the water well would be Brian & Christine, who are having a discussion.
Brian (walking and talking to Christine): How do you like the camp so far?
Christine (nodding her head): I would say that it’s pretty good. It has a lot more quality than the Blue Collar camp, that’s for sure.
Brian: I’m very happy about our camp; considering we won almost every challenge, which lets us get the rewards. Hopefully we can win many more.
Christine (giggling): I think since our team is stacked, we don’t have to worry about losing.
Brian (chuckling): Hopefully.
|“||I worked as a profiler for 15 years. People are always willing to cling to someone who is willing to lend out a hand, if they are in danger. I want to see where everyone on the tribe stands, and then I’ll be able to get my footing from there||”|
Brian (to Christine): What was life like on the Blue Collars?
Christine (still walking): VERY dysfunctional. The first Tribal Council kind of solidified my fate as the bottom person.
Brian (reaching the water well): Why do you say that?
Christine (to Brian): Rachel & Sequoia were very adamant about getting rid of me on Day 5 after I voted to send them home previously. Luckily, Albert & Mikey were able to be on my side and get rid of the latter.
Brian (to Christine): You obviously mean Sequoia, not Mikey?
Christine (nodding her head whilst giggling): Yes, that’s what I meant.
Brian (nodding his head): Interesting.
Christine (to Brian): What’s your position like on the tribe?
Brian (nervously chuckling): Probably a story of “Rise and Fall” if I do say so myself.
Christine begins to get curious as to why Brian would say something like that.
Brian (to Christine): At the last Tribal Council, I said something that didn’t go over well at all.
Christine (curious): What did you say?
Brian (to Christine): I said that if a woman were to demand sexual activity, I don’t see why a man would want to not consent.
Christine (nodding her head): And what was the reaction after that?
Brian: Instant backlash. I had Jee going over and saying “I’m voting for you”, and I had Andrea this morning saying that I was going home if she had anything to do with it.
Christine: Oh my.
Brian (shaking his head): So, right now, I’m willing to work with anyone.
Christine (nodding her head): Same. At this point, I have nobody to work with.
|“||Brian explained to me that he was on the bottom of his tribe; which is perfect news for me, since I am also looking for people to work with. Whilst I do not agree with what he apparently said at Tribal Council, lashing out at him would only make an enemy. And I don’t want any more people gunning for my head. I know that the Blue Collars are already going to be doing that, anyhow. Also, I cannot rip him apart for having different beliefs, as horrible as I think they are. It’s just not in my heart to criticize him for that. I think Brian has a good heart, and I’m hoping I can work with him, because if I can, he’s a good target for others. That will be able to divert attention off of me.||”|
Christine (to Brian): Would you be interested in working with me or no?
Brian (smiling): That’s kind of what I was hoping for. Someone who was willing to ask me for an alliance.
Christine (giggling): Do you?
Brian: I’d be more than happy to work with you. You seem like a genuinely nice girl, and obviously someone who is very intelligent.
Christine (blushing): Aww, thank you so much.
Brian (to Christine): What’s your game plan right now in terms of strategy?
Christine: I honestly, want to get rid of Rachel. (camera shifts to Rachel), She is very shady and calculating. She also doesn’t like me, and I saw her flirting with my closest ally a few days ago.
Brian (to Christine): I’m just gonna assume that would be Albert?
Christine (nodding her head): Yes.
Brian (nodding his head): Interesting.
|“||I like Christine, and I feel like she’s desperate in the game to secure a few votes or two. I’m also desperate to secure a few votes, so I feel like the two of us can be able to form a lethal combination. She seems to want Rachel out of the game, but that can easily be just a ploy to get me to target her, so she can just blindside my ass. For right now, I’m gonna keep her opinions on Rachel silent, but if I hear about her trying to possibly get me out, I will have zero problem with letting loose of these secrets.||”|
Tropical music is playing in the background, whilst the seven members of the new Saeki tribe are gathering around the shelter. All of them seem to be happily getting along with each other.
Jee (smiling): So this is our new home?
Geraldine (giggling): Yep, we hope you like it!
Jee (to Geraldine): I hope I like it too.
We see Albert kicking the sand casually, whilst he is looking up at the group of people he will be spending the next couple days with.
|“||Getting to the swap is definitely an accomplishment. My first goal in the game was to not be the first person voted out and (chuckling) it’s fairly obvious I’ve accomplished that; unless the guys already voted out are coming back in. PLEASE do not let that happen (laughing). I like the group I’m with a lot, and I believe I can connect really well with these guys. Mikey is someone I’ve come to respect and like back at the Blue Collars, and I know he’ll be loyal to me. I think I’ll have no problem getting the White Collars on my side as well. Right now, the No Collars lead 3-2-2 in terms of numbers, but I can hopefully change that. If I can get the Blue Collars the White Collars to form an alliance, we can systematically take down Geraldine, Kayden, and Naeha.||”|
Naeha (to the group): So do we want to give out introductions first?
Candice (nodding her head): I see no problem with that. Who wants to go first?
Jee (raising his hand): My name is Jee, and I’m a restaurant manager. I’m 24 years old, and I’m single. So ladies... watch out.
Naeha, Candice, and Geraldine all laugh at Jee’s statement.
Naeha (giggling): I don’t think you’ll have to worry about us. We might have to worry about you. Anyone wanna go next?
Albert: My name is Albert, and I’m a furniture mover.
Naeha (nodding her head): That’s awesome! My name is Naeha, I’m 28 years old, and I work as a bartender.
|“||It’s a little bittersweet to make it to the swap at this point. I voted against Candice last time, but she doesn’t know that. I’m obviously not going to tell her I voted against her, but she might just want to stab me in the back to get herself further in the game. I’m going to try and be a little quiet, and let everyone else kind of take the reigns. I don’t want to make myself a bigger target than people are probably going to think of me as initially.||”|
Kayden (smiling): The name is Kayden, I’m a Lifeguard, but my parents call me a disappointment.
Jee & Albert, along with a few others burst out laughing at Kayden’s comment.
Kayden (to the tribe): My mother had a C-section before I was born, and I remember her vividly describing it as the worst section of her life.
Mikey chuckles at Kayden’s comment, whilst everyone else is laughing, with the exception of Naeha & Candice who look on.
Geraldine (addressing the tribe): My name is Geraldine, I’m 49, and I’m an illustrator for a variety of children’s books.
Candice (smiling): I’m Candice, and I’m a business owner for a company that provides footwear for women across the country.
Mikey (to the tribe): I’m Morgan Smith, but my friends call me Mikey, which is what I prefer you guys to call me. I’m 67 years YOUNG, and I’m retired.
|“||I got to tell ya, I really like this tribe of people. I remember looking back at all the other seasons, and seeing how contestants were acting like it’s the end of the world. (laughing) It’s quite the opposite for me. I like getting to know new people, and I feel like this’ll be just another great experience for me. Everyone seems to be really nice.||”|
Kayden (standing up): I don’t believe any work needs to be done at the moment, does anyone disagree?
Everyone shakes their heads, believing that they should right now just relax.
Kayden (clapping his hands): Excellent choice! I got to get my beauty sleep, ta ta!
Geraldine giggles at Kayden, whilst Kayden decides to head off to the shelter.
Geraldine (to Jee & Albert): Would it be okay if we get some extra water actually? I’m beginning to get thirsty.
Albert (nodding his head): Absolutely. Do you want me to help you out?
Geraldine (nodding her head): If it’s not that much of a hassle.
Albert: It’s not a hassle at all. Anyone else want to help out?
Candice (raising her hand): I’ll walk with you guys if you need some extra help.
Geraldine (smiling): Perfect! Do we wanna go now?
Candice (to Geraldine): Sure!
Albert, Candice, and Geraldine all stand up to exit the camp area, whilst Naeha looks on at the three of them walking out.
Naeha (raising her voice): Don’t get lost!
Geraldine giggles as well as Candice. We see Mikey rubbing his eyes whilst he is sitting in the sand next to Naeha. Jee is right across from Mikey & Naeha; whilst Kayden is laying down in the shelter.
Naeha (to Mikey): So Mikey, you said you were retired, right?
Mikey (nodding his head): Yes ma’am. Have been since 2011.
Jee (curious): You retired at what age?
Mikey (to Jee): I retired in June, so it would’ve been a little over a month before I turned 61.
Jee (to Mikey): When were you born?
Mikey (to Jee): July 22.
Naeha (smiling): I wish my birthday was in the summer. That would’ve been amazing. But NO! I have to be born in December!
Mikey (chuckling): It’s not a huge deal. But my teachers in grade school never gave me a birthday treat. You young folks are lucky to have them now.
Jee (curious): Birthday treats?
Naeha (to Jee): He means that whenever it’s your birthday, the teacher will usually say “Happy Birthday, Jee!” and then give you a present; such as a pencil or a piece of candy.
Jee (nodding his head): Oh, I see now.
Naeha (to Mikey): What did you do before you retired?
Mikey (to Naeha): A couple of things. Most notably I spent 30 years being a rescue worker. I started out when I was 30, and worked my way up from there.
Jee (to Mikey): How many people have you rescued?
Mikey (to Jee): I choose not to count. I did what I had to do, which was to help those who couldn’t help themselves.
Jee (smiling): I got mad respect for you dude.
Mikey (chuckling): Thank you, sir.
Jee (to Mikey): You said you did a couple of things. What did you mean by that?
Mikey (to Jee): I did some work in politics I guess.
Jee (interested): Really?!
Mikey (nodding his head): Yeah.
Naeha (to Mikey): What kind of political work did you do?
Mikey (to Naeha): Well, in my state of Ohio, I ran for Mayor of Somerset in 1998 as a Republican.
Jee (to Mikey): Did you win?
Mikey (chuckling): Oh hell no. I got 13% of the votes to the other man’s 87%. I had no chance of winning.
Jee (to Mikey): That sucks, man. I would’ve voted for you.
Mikey (smiling): Thank you again sir. I’m an Independent voter, I would say now. But I share mostly conservative views.
Jee (to Mikey): What do you think about President Trump right now? (chuckling)
Mikey (to Jee): Meh, I’m a little on the fence about him. I don’t think he’s as much of a devil as people claim he is, but he’s got a huge ego and an even bigger mouth. If he can calm himself down and at least handle an OUNCE of criticism, I’d like him a lot more. In terms of policies, I agree with him on mostly everything. But I do wish someone more trustworthy was in the White House.
Jee (smiling): Would you’ve preferred Hillary Cli...
Mikey (interrupting Jee): Absolutely not.
Jee bursts out laughing at Mikey interrupting him.
Mikey (to Jee): I see why a lot of younger people voted for her. But being an old guy like myself, who LIVED through her and Bill’s presidency, I do NOT want to see her get back into office. At least with Trump, he’s upfront about mostly everything and doesn’t lie even half as much as Hillary did.
Jee: Very interesting. What else did you do?
Mikey (to Jee): Um, I served in the military for about a year or so.
Jee (to Mikey): What war did you serve in?
Mikey (to Jee): I volunteered to serve in Vietnam when I was about 19. Served until December 1970.
Naeha looks up at Mikey in concern.
Naeha (worried): So, you served in the Vietnam War?
Mikey (nodding his head): Yep. I was one of the lucky ones to be discharged. Unfortunately a couple of my buddies had to serve for years.
Naeha (nodding her head): Uh-huh.
Mikey (concerned): Anything wrong?
Naeha (shaking her head): Not at all.
Mikey (standing up): Okay. If y’all don’t mind, I’m gonna go for a little swim.
Jee (smiling): Go right ahead buddy.
Mikey walks off and takes his white shirt off, and also takes his shoes off to swim in the ocean. Meanwhile, Naeha looks a little annoyed when she is looking at the former Vietnam veteran and Rescue Worker.
Naeha (cringing): I don’t think I’m going to like Michael.
Jee (to Naeha): You mean Mikey?
Naeha (annoyed): Yeah, whatever.
Jee (to Naeha): Why do you say that?
Naeha (to Jee): Just personal preferences. I like the military and all, but I’m staunchly liberal, and I HATE Richard Nixon.
Jee (chuckling): What does Nixon have to do with Mikey?
Naeha (replying to Jee): Nixon could’ve ended the war, but he didn’t. It resulted in so many babies and women being raped and killed.
Jee (to Naeha): Still though, what does that have to do with Mikey?
Naeha (agitated): Because I personally believe Vietnam veterans were people who didn’t really fight for us.
Kayden looks up at Naeha after laying down for a few minutes. Kayden is shocked as well as Jee.
Kayden (to Naeha): You do realize these guys fought for us?
Naeha (to Kayden): I don’t believe they did. You should look at the My Lai Massacre in 1968. Look how many women and children were raped by the pigs in that war.
Kayden (annoyed): You shouldn’t paint ALL veterans in that category as pigs though. I don’t mean to be PC, but that’s not only offensive to the people who served, but to the people who WANT to serve in the army.
Naeha (agitated): Whatever Kayden, go back to daydreaming, you illogical jackass.
Kayden (raising his hands): I’m just saying, don’t call Mikey out for serving for our country.
Naeha (scoffing): If Mikey truly cared about this country, he wouldn’t be a right-winger, first of all.
Jee (to Naeha): At this point, what difference does it make?
Kayden (laughing): I see what you did there.
Naeha (to Jee): Mikey volunteered to kill women and children. I personally, have a problem with that.
Kayden (annoyed): That’s a load of <expletive>.
Jee (to Naeha): I don’t believe he would do anything like that.
Naeha (to Jee): You should pay more attention to the news, honey.
|“||When Mikey told me, Jee, and Jackass that he served in the Vietnam War, I was alarmed. Because I know full well what people who served on the American side did to women and children. The My Lai Massacre is something I read in high school, and I will never forget it. I’m sure there are veterans from others wars such was World War 2 and World War 1 that have not done anything like the people who served in Vietnam and Iraq have, but the people who served in Vietnam were violent. William Calley was someone who got a slap on the wrist for his role in raping children and raping women. That’s despicable, and for Mikey to proudly say that he served in a War like Vietnam, is utterly embarrassing. I don’t know what to think of him, and my respect for Mikey dropped significantly after he told me that.||”|
Naeha (getting up): I’m gonna look for some snails, anyone wanna join?
Jee (shaking his head): No thanks.
Naeha (nodding her head): Okey Dokey!
Naeha walks off to the left side of the island, whilst Jee & Kayden are left alone at camp.
Kayden (to Jee): Oh, is that gonna make my blood boil.
Jee (shaking his head): Why the <expletive> would she say something like that?
Kayden (irritated): Disrespectful, ungrateful bitch. And that’s the mild adjectives I would describe her as.
Jee: Like, I get why she’d say, “Oh, the war was tragic and shouldn’t have happened”, but she’s talking smack about someone for DEFENDING their country. She is sh*tting where she’s eating.
Kayden (shaking his head): It baffles me how she’s openly willing to jump down my throat if I say something offensive like making a joke on adoption, but she’s more than welcome to piss all over the people who fought to give her the right to be a <expletive> idiot.
|“||Naeha has always agitated me, but she’s hit a new low with this one. For her to say that the people, such as Mikey, who served in the line of duty are ‘baby killers’ and ‘rapists’, is disgusting. I was kind of glad Mikey wasn’t there, because I have a feeling he’d go full-on Rambo on her ass. There’s nothing political to be said about Naeha’s statement, and I’m a liberal myself. I think Naeha is genuinely a disgusting human being for saying what she said. And the fact that she’s so one-sided with her opinions, and that she wanted to say this <expletive> when Mikey left, shows how much of a complete coward she is. I want to get rid of Naeha now, more than ever. And I’m willing to do anything to get what I need. After all, in this game, the ends justify the means.||”|
Kayden is laying on his back in the shelter, shaking his head at what he just heard. Jee is tapping his foot, and we see Naeha walking down the beach before we go to a commercial break.
It is the morning of Day 12 on the Saeki Tribe, and everyone is sitting back and relaxing on the beach. People like Albert & Geraldine are currently eating their breakfast, which is rice and some fish. Other people, like Mikey, are focusing more so on the game. Mikey is also wondering about his idol, which he has in his bag; he is also carrying said bag. Sitting on the sand, holding his knees, Mikey looks at the ocean with a stern look on his face. It is also very windy at the Saeki camp, so we see his long locks blowing in the air.
|“||I am in possession of the hidden immunity idol; and as far as I know, I’m the only person who knows that. My problem is, I don’t want others noticing that I have a giant bulge in my pocket. So, I want to remain intelligent, and look for a decent hiding spot to keep my idol safe.||”|
Mikey stands up, and brushes off the sand on his shorts, and proceeds to walk near the woods. He has the sole intent to hide his idol from anybody wanting to find it for themselves.
|“||I’m going to have a couple obstacles standing in my way when I look for a hiding spot. For one, instead of worrying about three of these people, I’m gonna have to worry about six. I don’t really trust anyone, and I have every right to not trust them, considering how sneaky these young guys can be. Secondly, I don’t want to make a hiding spot in which someone might find it, and believe that the idol was not found previously. If someone finds it, and they assume it’s an idol for them, I could be sent out of the game. And last – but not least – trespassers. I do not want ANYONE finding out about this idol, because I know I’m gonna have a big enough target on my back right now, since I’m the oldest guy out here, but if they see that I got an advantage in this game, I am <expletive>.||”|
Mikey begins standing in the middle of the woods, and is near a plethora of trees in said woods.
Mikey (curious): Now if I was an idol, where would I end up being?
Mikey, once again looks around in the woods. He finds a Beech tree, which is known to be a very large tree. He initially puts it near there, but after two minutes, he decides to place it somewhere else.
Mikey (digging for the idol): That isn’t going to work.
|“||I found this tree to put it near; but I always know that in past seasons, idols tended to be spotted around weird looking things. And I don’t see any other trees looking like that fat tree I see that I was gonna plant the idol near. So, it was back to the drawing board, I guess you could say.||”|
Mikey eventually finds what appears to be a hickory tree, which is surrounded by other hickory trees, and is covered in branches. Mikey decides to place the idol high up at the tree, and carve his birthday “7-22-50”, onto the tree to remember where he placed it. In order to not single it out from other trees, Mikey takes a sharp stick he found on the ground (which is what he carved the tree with), and decided to carve his wife’s birthday “1-25-52” on a tree that was many feet away, and placed the note that he found on Day 4 (the note that stated he found the idol), and placed it under the tree with his wife’s birthday carved under it. Mikey was all set to climb the tree, however, someone was right behind him.
Candice (walking right behind Mikey): Oh hey Mikey! What’s up?
Mikey (startled): What the?!
Candice (raising an eyebrow): Excuse me?
Mikey (to Candice): Oh, I’m sorry. How’s it going Candice?
|“||Candice was right behind me when I was carving the two trees, which is a little frustrating. Because I really don’t know her that well, it’s a little annoying to say the least. At least with Albert, I would’ve confided in someone I think is a loyal guy. (chuckling) Of course this has to happen when I needed people to ignore me.||”|
Candice (noticing Mikey’s idol): So who’s this little guy right there?
Mikey (hesitant): Um, do you promise not to tell anyone?
Candice (to Mikey): Why would I?
|“||Well, that was unexpected. I was walking in the woods to use the restroom, and I see Mikey, and this immunity idol. Mikey’s trying so desperately to hide it up, but I can see right through his tricks. I may’ve been born at night, but I wasn’t born last night.||”|
Candice (to Mikey): How’d you find the idol?
Mikey (chuckling): It’s a long story. Let’s just say it took hours of searching and a possible silent heart attack.
Candice giggles at Mikey whilst Mikey wipes his forehead, which is covered in sweat.
|“||Unfortunately when it came to finding a good place to hide my idol, I was a day late and a dollar short. Candice found where I was, and it’s fair to say that I am disappointed. I’m hoping she is able to keep it a secret between the two of us.||”|
Candice (to Mikey): Did you just find it?
Mikey (shaking his head): I found it a few days back actually.
Candice (shocked): Wow! So, you found it on the other tribe?
Mikey (nodding his head): Yeah. I found it on the Blue Collars camp. Are you gonna tell anyone?
Candice (shaking her head): Not at all. I have no reason to tell anyone now.
Mikey (to Candice): So nobody’s going to know about this?
Candice (to Mikey): Not unless you tell anyone that you found it.
|“||Mikey is someone that I think is going to be a trustworthy guy. I feel like since I know about his idol, he won’t vote me off. I need trust at this point, because after the last Tribal Council, I have nobody to work with. Hopefully Mikey can perhaps pull me into his alliance if he ends up having any. I want to use this to my advantage. If he ends up stabbing me in the back however, I will have no problem exposing the power he potentially holds.||”|
Mikey (chuckling): Let’s say this is a private business partnership.
Candice (giving Mikey her hand): Hopefully it works.
Mikey and Candice shake hands and both laugh. As Candice walks off, Mikey looks to the camera (breaking the fourth-wall so to speak) and has a worried look on his face. We then transition to the high tide on the Saeki beach. Albert, Geraldine, Kayden, and Naeha, are all relaxing on the beach. Jee is doing the tribe’s laundry; he is cleaning Kayden & Albert’s clothes. We see Geraldine smiling, as she is looking at the waves. The waves touching her feet as well.
|“||I really enjoy just sitting by the shore and watching the waves. I think a lot of people in the game tend to focus more on the strategical aspect and ‘Who’s gonna go next?’ or ‘Who’s gunning for me?’; and I feel that everyone needs a little relaxation from the game. It’s nice when we have such a sunny day. Granted, I wish it wasn’t as windy today, but the sun is out, so that’s a plus (giggling).||”|
Kayden (covering himself in sand): My nipples are harder than when I went a full month without jerking off.
Albert (surprised): You went a full month?!
Kayden (nodding his head): Damn right I did. I’ll never forget it. My friends and I were playing “Truth or Dare”, and I was dared to never masturbate for a month. I was full-on wasted, so he wrote me a note when I woke up that told me about the dare.
Naeha (annoyed): This is getting gross.
Kayden (to Albert): Anyways, the dude tempted me with all these pictures of my crush on Instagram. Eventually the month passed, and I lasted three extra days in the next month. Mostly due to the fact that I was sick.
Geraldine (giggling): Stop it Kayden, that’s gross.
Kayden (to Geraldine): I didn’t even get to the best part. Whenever I gave into the urges, my grandma came into the bedroom after I, you know, did my thing.
Naeha rolls her eyes in annoyance as Albert begins chuckling.
Geraldine (to Kayden): And what did she do?
Kayden (to Geraldine): She said I looked like I just got out of prison.
Albert, who was drinking water from his canteen, spits it out. He is hysterically laughing. Geraldine also gives out a chuckle, and Naeha is just agitated with Kayden’s story.
|“||Kayden can be very immature at times, and it gets under my skin considering I’m more of a mature person. Today, he told us a story about how he – let me find the right words to say – satisfies himself. And it’s just seventh-grade humor in my opinion. Like there’s no real comedy surrounding the story, but Albert & Geraldine believed it was the funniest thing since the whoopie cushion was invented. Sometimes I get really annoyed out here, especially since everyone has such different views than I do. It’s hard to put on a mask of tolerance, when I just want the majority of people – ESPECIALLY Kayden – to be out of this game.||”|
Geraldine (to Albert, Kayden, and Naeha): I must tell you, I am surprised that I reached Day 12 of the game.
Naeha (smiling at Geraldine): Me too. I expected to be the first one out of here.
Albert (chuckling): Same. Literally, when I lost that first challenge, I figured it was going to be me leaving the game.
Albert (laughing): Mikey wasn’t that bad, but Peanut was just irritating.
Kayden (to Geraldine): Geraldine, what would you do with the million dollars?
Geraldine (curious): Hmm... I haven’t really thought a lot about that. It’s a very interesting question. I guess I could use it to save up for my future grandbabies.
Albert (to Geraldine): How old are you, if you don’t mind me asking?
Geraldine: I don’t mind. I’ll be 50 in a few months, my son Jonathan is 27 and has a lovely girlfriend named Sydney. I’m hoping they get married soon so I can see some new members of the “Koller Tribe”, as I call it (giggling)
Kayden (to Geraldine): I had no clue you had a son, you left this a secret for the past 12 days?!
Geraldine (laughing): Well, I would’ve told you if you asked me.
Naeha (to Geraldine): What’s your son like? Is he handsome?
Geraldine (smiling): Very handsome. He’d probably do a better job in this game than I’m doing right now.
Kayden (to Geraldine): What does Jonathan mean to you?
Geraldine (taking a deep breath): Um... Jonathan is my life. (laughing) He’s the one person, aside from my husband, who makes me get up in the morning every day. I’m playing this game for them, and I believe family is the most important thing.
Albert (to Geraldine): Amen!
Geraldine begins drawing a couple stick figures in the sand; this is noticed by Albert, who is sitting to her right.
Albert (to Geraldine): What’s that?
Geraldine (looking down): That would be me, Rick, Jonathan, and Ernie. Ernie’s my pet pug, he’s so adorable.
Kayden (smiling at Geraldine): Rick’s your husband, right?
Geraldine (nodding her head): He is indeed.
Kayden: What exactly is it about Rick that made you want to marry him?
Geraldine takes a deep breath yet again, and pulls her blonde hair back. Emotional music begins to play in the background
Geraldine: He’s the love of my life.
Naeha, Albert, and Kayden smile at Geraldine as she begins to take more deep breaths.
Geraldine (to all three of them): We sleep together, we pray together, we play together. I’m just so thankful to have him in my life.
Naeha (to Geraldine): How did you guys meet?
Geraldine: It’s a very long story (laughing)
Everyone laughs at Geraldine’s comment as they proceed to listen to her talk again.
Geraldine: Rick & I met in college. Both of us were studying art & literature. We ended up having the same class together in my junior year in ’88. We had a dorm room right across from each other, and the girl I was roommates with was dating the guy who Rick was roommates with. I decided to invite Rick over to my place when my roommate – her name is Eileen – decided to go out with Rick’s dorm buddy.
Kayden (to Albert): I like where this is going.
Naeha slaps Kayden on the shoulder, implying that she wants him to be quiet and let Geraldine continue with her story.
Geraldine (smiling): So anyways, he and I talked a lot about certain topics. We both talked about the election, which was coming up in November of that year. We talked about college and our classes, and we also mentioned our favorite television shows and movies.
Naeha (to Geraldine): Was he hot or not?
Geraldine (laughing): It didn’t matter to me. I don’t focus on looks, darling. He was cute in my eyes, and he kind of looked like Buddy Holly and Woody Allen.
Naeha (to Geraldine): Why would you be attracted to him?
Geraldine: I guess I liked his personality. He was shy and introverted, he has Asperger’s Syndrome, which affects people with social skills. I don’t know whether he liked me or not initially, but I did try to sort of give him the notion of “Hey, I’d be interested in being with you”.
Albert (to Geraldine): What was his response to those signals?
Geraldine (to Albert): Rick was always paranoid. He told me he was worried that his roommate was trying to kill him. He also worried about the possibility of being diagnosed with AIDS, due to the epidemic that occurred in the 1980’s, which was understandable.
Naeha (to Geraldine): But you said he looked like Buddy Holly, I don’t think anyone would give him an STD since he’d probably never get laid.
Geraldine (to Naeha): A lot of people who were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS got them through needles and syringes. Rick actually refused to get vaccines due to fear of contracting HIV.
Albert: Oh my, that’s horrible.
Geraldine: It didn’t stop there however. When Rick told me he had Asperger’s, he feared that I would never talk to him again.
Kayden (to Geraldine): Did you have a crush on him afterwards?
Geraldine (nodding her head): I did; I really wanted to help him. I wanted to let him know that everything was going to be okay, and that he wouldn’t have to worry about anything. Unfortunately, he didn’t believe anything I said. He began drinking and calling me a “two-faced bitch” (taking a deep breath), he thought I was seeing other men, and was only using him for attention. And that’s ... um, (buries face in hands) that’s what caused him to try and take his life. (choking up) Um... I remember seeing him in the (sniffles) bat.... bathroom. I had to perform 2 hours of CPR to get him back to health.
Naeha begins holding back tears as Albert takes a deep breath. Kayden looks at a saddened Geraldine; he is feeling empathetic to her situation.
Geraldine (tearfully): I rushed him to the hospital, where he was in a coma for a few days. (wiping tears from her eyes) I don’t believe I would’ve forgiven myself if he died.
Kayden shakes his head whilst Albert is hugging a tearful Naeha.
Kayden (to Geraldine): What drove him to attempt suicide again?
Geraldine: He thought that because he had Asperger’s, there was nobody who was going to love him. And I tried to let him know (sniffles) that... that wasn’t that case. (sniffles) I’m sorry.
Albert (shaking his head): No, it’s okay.
Geraldine begins crying more, and she begins to stand up.
Geraldine (to Albert, Kayden, and Naeha): I’ll be back in a little bit.
Albert (nodding his head): Take all the time you need, honey.
Geraldine walks into the shelter and proceeds to lay down. The emotional Children’s Illustrator is reflecting on her relationship with her husband and how much he means to her.
|“||(tearfully) I knew it was only a matter of time before I broke down like this. (laughing sadly) My husband is someone who I look up to in every way, shape, and form, and even though he doesn’t believe it, I just want to come out here and show him how much he means to me. (sniffles) I just don’t know what I would do without him, and he’s such an amazing, generous person. And the saddest thing is (wiping tears from her eyes) he still thinks about ending his life, and it hurts. I wish I could take all the pain that he has and just place the pain all on me to save him (sniffles). I think about Rick every single day I’m out here, because I know he’s fighting his demons back at home. Rick does not want to die, he wants to be saved. (taking a deep breath) And as his wife, I’m obligated to save him at every cost.||”|
We hear the music die out as we zoom into the Hayato Tribe’s camp.
Whilst on the beach, Rachel is seen burying her feet in the sand whilst Dan is sitting near the shelter with the machete looking on at Rachel.
|“||I just spent my first night on the White Collar beach. It was kind of nice to lay on comfortable pillows and blankets for the first time in god knows how long. However, I know that in this game, strategy is of the utmost importance, and I want to make sure I get my numbers intact come a future swap or future merge.||”|
Dan walks over to Rachel, who is laying down by the beach. Rachel acknowledges the model.
Rachel (flirtingly): Hey Danny.
Dan (chuckling): Hi Rachel, what’s up?
Rachel (smiling): I’m doing great now that you’re here.
Dan (to Rachel): Same. How does it feel to be on the new tribe?
Rachel (to Dan): Considering our tribe didn’t have jack <expletive> in terms of comfort, I feel like I’m on Cloud 9.
Dan (nodding his head): Yeah, the White Collars definitely did a phenomonal job with setting up the place.
Rachel gets her feet out of the sand and sits in “criss-cross applesauce” fashion. Rachel slaps the grounds of the sand to imply that Dan should sit across from her.
Rachel (to Dan): Come Come.
Dan proceeds to sit down as he begins conversing with her.
Dan (to Rachel): How do you like the new tribe when it comes to the people?
Rachel (to Dan): It’s a hell of a lot better than the last tribe I was on. (rolls eyes) Christine was so gung ho on getting rid of me for some reason, and it resulted in one of us nearly going home at both of our Tribal Councils.
Dan: So I see it that you aren’t a Christine fan?
Rachel: Let’s just say that I like Christine as much as I like getting food poisoning.
Dan chuckles at Rachel’s statement whilst he continues with the conversation.
Dan (to Rachel): How bad was she?
Rachel: Christine just hated me for some reason, and I don’t know why.
Dan (smiling): Maybe she’s jealous of how good you look.
Rachel (blushing): Aww, that’s so sweet.
Dan cracks his knuckles whilst looking at the waves before looking back at Rachel.
Rachel (to Dan): How was Tang on Saeki?
Dan (chuckling): Tang was a handful.
Rachel: Tang is weird, he’s an oddball.
Dan (to Rachel): I believe that’s one way to put it. (laughing) He’s a little emotional, but he’s a nice guy. I think he can trust me right now considering I’m the only one he knows. In addition, I saved his ass at our first Tribal Council when it was him or Annie going home, so he owes me one.
Rachel (to Dan): Would you be interested in aligning with me?
Dan (smiling): That was actually why I came over here. I was wondering if you’d like to join me, Tang, and a fourth person in getting the numbers together.
Rachel (smiling to Dan): I’m in. Shut up and take my money.
Dan laughs at Rachel’s statement whilst Rachel is looking at Dan with a smile.
|“||I think Dan is a hunk, for sure (laughing). When he approached me in hopes for an alliance, I was legitimately shocked. I wanted to align with him and Tang off the bat so I could get the numbers and be in the majority. However, I am skeptical. Dan seems like the type of guy that could be telling you one thing, and think of the exact opposite. But for right now, I’m gonna obviously stick with him, because I really don’t have anybody to work with at this point. All the friends that I liked on Azumi; being Mikey and Albert, are on the other tribe now. So, I have to make this work.||”|
Dan (to Rachel): I understand you’re not a big fan of Christine, which is fine with me. But is there anyone else you’d be interested in reeling into this foursome?
Rachel: Um... obviously one of the White Collars. I’m gonna count out Brian right away, the guy looks like he’s a manipulator and I know how people like him operate.
Dan (nodding his head): I know what you mean. I also get the feeling that Brian is hiding something.
Rachel (curious): Like an idol?
Dan (to Rachel): Perhaps, there’s something about him that doesn’t appeal to me.
The camera shifts to Brian stroking his hair and beard as we resume to Dan & Rachel’s conversation about the game.
|“||Rachel is someone I think is very willing to side with me. She delivered some very valuable information about Christine, which I believe I can use to my advantage. In addition, she seems more than willing to accept Tang within this group, which I believe is a good thing as he’s the only other person I have talked to in this game. Rachel & I both share our distrust towards the White Collars. Despite this, I know that in a group of 7, four people count as a majority. That being said, we’re gonna have to swing either Andrea, Brian, or Brooke into our alliance. Who’s going to be that person? I have no clue, but I’m a very stubborn person. If I need to make something happen, you better damn well believe I’m going to make it happen.||”|
Dan (to Rachel): Maybe we can try and work with each of the White Collars to see which one of them is best suited to join our group.
Rachel (to Dan): I’m leaning towards Andrea or Brooke, but I’m more than accepting to have Brian in our mix if he’s willing to work with us.
Dan: As long as we play our cards right, we should be in good shape. Who would be your ideal target?
Rachel (nodding her head): Christine, without a doubt
We see Christine doing push-ups near the shelter with Brian, whilst Andrea is chewing on Acidosasa Iingchuanensis, a type of bamboo.
Rachel (to Dan): She’s the one who’s trying to get rid of me and the Blue Collars for no reason. Also, if she spends more time with the White Collars, who knows what kind of power she can hold?
Dan (nodding his head): You make a VERY good point.
|“||By aligning with Dan, I hope to not only take control of the game, but to eliminate anybody who stands in my way. Christine is the main person who stands in my way, and I have no problem rallying numbers to get her out of here. If everything comes into fruition, then I’ll be the last Blue Collar member on the Hayato tribe very soon. Take your vitamins, and say your prayers Christine. You are out of here! (laughing)||”|
We see Christine doing more push-ups with Brian near the shelter before cutting to a commercial break.
Following a commercial break, we are underwater viewing the fish that are swimming in the ocean. After a couple of seconds, the camera goes back up and we see several parts of the immunity challenge. Jeff Probst is standing in front of the challenge whilst intense Survivor music is playing in the background. Also present are two mats: one green, one red to show the Hayato and Saeki tribe respectively.
Jeff Probst (raising his voice): Come on in guys!
The fourteen remaining Survivor contestants are walking from the bushes; the Hayato tribe is walking from the left of the challenge, whilst the Saeki tribe is walking from the right of the challenge. Carrying the tribe flags for Hayato & Saeki are Brian and Kayden respectively. The two men place their flags on the ground once all seven members from each tribe make it to their mats.
Jeff Probst (nodding and smiling): You guys ready to get to your first immunity challenge as new tribes?
Jeff Probst (motioning towards Hayato): Alright, first things first. Rachel, I’m going to need the idol that was transferred from your original tribe to this tribe. Give it up.
Rachel heads to Jeff to hand him the Tribal Immunity Idol.
Rachel (at the last minute): Can I just hold it for a few more seconds?
Jeff Probst (chuckling): You’re gonna have to give it up, Rachel.
Christine laughs at this whilst Rachel gives up the idol to Jeff.
Jeff Probst (motioning towards Saeki): Candice, you’re gonna have to give it up as well.
Candice proceeds to walk to Jeff and hand him the Tribal Immunity Idol. Jeff then returns to where he was originally standing.
Jeff Probst: Because we now have two tribes, (picks up smaller idol) we don’t need this guy anymore.
The castaways all smile in amusement at the smaller idol being placed next to Jeff’s shoes.
Jeff Probst (holding the bigger idol): We only need this big boy.
Kayden (jokingly): It could be a big girl. Don’t misgender idols, Jeff.
Jeff Probst (to Kayden): It’s an idol, Kayden.
Kayden (to Jeff): You want people to be mad at you for saying that? I just don’t want this show to fail like the Jeff Probst Show did.
Many contestants open their mouths in shock, whilst others chuckle and are laughing at Kayden’s insult. Jeff also lets out a chuckle.
Jeff Probst: Glad you’re on the show Kayden.
Kayden (shrugging his shoulders): It’s 2016 man, anything can happen.
Rachel (laughing): What the <expletive>?
Dan (jokingly to Kayden): It’s 2017 dumbass, get it right.
Kayden (brushing dust off his shoulder): Daniel, I am rubber, you are glue.
Dan chuckles whilst Jeff Probst continues with the challenge process.
Jeff Probst (smiling): Alright, anyways.
Kayden (under his breath): Jeff, have my babies.
Jeff Probst (to everyone): For today's challenge, two men and one woman from each tribe will stand with a pole across their shoulders. Each round, the remaining tribe members will designate 20lbs of weight to one of the weight bearers from the other tribe. When the pressure gets too much and you drop the pole, you'll be out of the challenge. Last person standing wins immunity for their tribe.
The contestants all smile as they are all equally hoping for immunity to go to their own tribe.
Jeff Probst: Immunity means that you are safe from the vote and CANNOT be voted out. The losing tribe will go to Tribal Council where the fifth person will be voted out of Survivor: Japan. In addition, because this challenge only requires 6 members, each tribe will sit out one member for this challenge. Hayato, who are you guys gonna sit out?
After a while of discussing, the tribe decides that Rachel will sit out. Rachel raises her hand, smiling.
Jeff Probst (pointing to Rachel): Alright Rachel, you will sit out for Hayato.
Rachel (taking a deep breath): Sometimes I need some time to relax from all the challenge work I’ve been doing. You think (pointing to herself) this, was an accident?
Kayden (whispering to Jee): She probably was.
Jee (chuckling): Perhaps.
Jeff Probst (to Saeki): Alright Saeki, you’re also sitting out one member for this challenge. Who’s it gonna be?
Immediately out of the gate, one of the members of Saeki decides that he would like to sit out.
Mikey (raising his hand): Jeff, I’d like to sit out to help my tribe.
Many of the contestants are surprised to see that Mikey is sitting out for the tribe, as Candice was expecting to be the one to sit out.
Mikey (to Jeff): I didn’t want to sit out, but considering one person has to, I rather sit out and allow my fellow tribemates to dominate in this challenge against the green tribe.
Brian (sarcastically to Mikey): They might need you Mike.
Jee (to Brian): He doesn’t need you to fight his battles.
Brian smirks as Jee glares at the former FBI Criminal Profiler.
Jeff Probst: Okay! Mikey and Rachel will be sitting out. For the rest of you, I’ll give you a minute to strategize, and we’ll get started.
We watch as the contestants are huddled up planning their strategy for this Immunity Challenge. We fade to three contestants from each tribe holding onto weight poles, and Jeff is standing in front of the three other contestants who are going to be handing out the weight.
Jeff Probst: Alright. Barring the weight for Hayato will be Brian, Dan, and Christine. Barring the weight for Saeki will be Kayden, Jee, and Geraldine.
Geraldine (smiling and talking to herself): This one is for the oldies.
Jeff Probst (to everyone): For immunity, this challenge is officially, on.
|Reward Challenge: Shoulder The Load|
|Finish||Tribe||Weight Bearers||Weight Distributors||Sit-Out|
Brian, Christine, Dan
Andrea, Brooke, Tang
Geraldine, Jee, Kayden
Albert, Candice, Naeha
- Immediately in the challenge, weight is being distributed to Brian and Jee. Geraldine and Christine are given the least amount of weight in the first third of the challenge with only 80 lbs.
- The first person to drop is Dan, who drops at 120 lbs. This puts Brian under the radar of the Saeki tribe, as he currently is holding onto 140 lbs. Mikey suggests that Albert place the weight onto Brian until he cannot take it longer. Albert argues that the weight should be distributed evenly in case Christine were to remain in the game.
- Kayden proceeds to act arrogant in the challenge and decides to hop on one foot for a good 25 seconds whilst holding 140 lbs. This display causes Naeha to tell him to "wake the <expletive> up". Jeff Probst jokingly states, "Kayden, you will be hopping your way to Tribal Council if you keep that up." Jee surprisingly falls before Kayden, as he was holding up 200 lbs. (Jee was Hayato's prime target)
- Eventually, Kayden ends up giving up at 180 lbs. Naeha whispers to Candice, "If we lose because of that jackass...". Brian falls off a couple minutes after Kayden due to poor footing, which agitates him.
- Geraldine and Christine are the last two remaining in the challenge. Both of them are holding onto 140 lbs. by the time Brian dropped out. Rachel and Mikey are giving support to their teammates, whilst Naeha is telling Geraldine to "hang in there".
- Although Geraldine puts up a great fight, she is defeated by Christine before she reached the 220 lb. mark, costing her tribe the challenge.
Jeff Probst (raising his voice): HAYATO WINS IMMUNITY AND IS SAFE FROM TRIBAL COUNCIL!!!!
Christine drops her pole, whilst Rachel runs over to hug her tribe in celebration. Geraldine is looking down to the ground in complete defeat and disappointment. Mikey gives Geraldine a hug as the latter is clearly saddened by her performance in the challenge. Everyone else on Saeki, whilst disappointed, is satisfied with Geraldine's performance.
Geraldine (to her tribe): I'm so sorry guys, I wish I performed better.
Jee (hugging Geraldine): There's nothing to be sorry about you did amazing.
Brian (celebrating his victory): And THAT is how you win an Immunity Challenge.
Brian gives Christine a high-five whilst the Saeki tribe stands on their mat, knowing one of them will be going home. We then transition to the tribes back on their mats, and Jeff holding onto the Tribal Immunity Idol.
Jeff Probst (to Hayato): Alright Hayato! Who wants it?
Brian (to Jeff): I think Christine is most deserving of it today.
Christine (smiling): I'll happily accept it.
Jeff hands the idol over to Christine, whilst all of the Hayato members, along with a few members of Saeki clap their hands congratulating Christine.
Jeff Probst (to Hayato): Alright Hayato, for winning this challenge, you are safe from the vote. Nobody is going home tonight from your tribe. Grab your things and head back to camp, enjoy the night off.
Brian (smiling): Oh, we will.
The seven members of the Hayato tribe grab their belongings, and as Jeff stated, walked out of the challenge area. We see a degree of agitation amongst the Saeki tribe, and Naeha is looking at Kayden and Mikey in an agitated fashion, as well as Geraldine's visable disappointment in letting her team down.
Jeff Probst: Alright Saeki, unfortunately, you guys will be going to Tribal Council tonight, where the fifth person will be voted out of Survivor: Japan - White Collar vs. Blue Collar vs. No Collar. Grab your things and head back to camp, I will see all of you tonight at Tribal Council.
We see Albert grabbing the tribe's flag as Naeha is walking out with her bag and shaking her head at the tribe's loss. Mikey has his head down as we hear Naeha's confessional.
|“||I am beyond annoyed at the fact that we lost the challenge today. In my mind, there are two people to blame. Kayden, for screwing around like he usually does in the challenge, as well as Mikey for asking to sit out when we could've sat out Kayden. It's beyond irritating, but at this point, I'm going to probably lean towards voting out Mikey. Mikey is a very likable guy in the sense that he has made friendships and bonds with relatively everyone in this game. And whilst I highly dislike Kayden, it only makes sense from a strategic standpoint to go after the biggest threat. The biggest threat to my social game is Mikey. I am determined to stay in this game at all costs, and if I have to vote out someone I only met two days ago, then I'm more than ready to do just that.||”|
After Challenge Poll
Who on the White Collar Tribe do You Believe Will Go Home Tonight?
Final Result: Naeha Pandit (6 - 1)
After Immunity Challenge
Gloomy music is playing in the background, and we see a few monkeys playing in the trees before we look at all seven members of the new Saeki tribe walking back to camp. All of them are miserable, and they are placing their belongings near the shelter.
Mikey (to the tribe): I must say, even though we lost, y’all put up a very good fight.
Naeha (rolling her eyes): We know, you’re not the only one with a good memory.
Mikey (shrugging his shoulders): You don’t have to be rude.
Naeha (to Mikey): I’m not being rude, I’m just annoyed that someone was <expletive> around during the cha – you know what, nevermind.
Naeha walks away from where Mikey is and stops talking to him, and we see Mikey shrugging his shoulders. Geraldine then speaks up in front of the tribe.
Geraldine (to the tribe): I, once again, want to say that I am so disappointed I couldn’t last longer. I really wanted to win this for you guys.
Jee (patting Geraldine on the back): You did the best that you could do, and that’s really all that matters.
Naeha (glaring at Mikey): Maybe if some other person stepped into the challenge then we would’ve won.
Kayden (whispering to Mikey): If I wanted a bitch on the island, I would’ve brought a dog.
Naeha (angrily to Kayden): I heard that jackass, I have ears.
Kayden (to Naeha): Were you born on a highway? That’s where most accidents happen.
Naeha rolls her eyes at Kayden’s comment.
|“||Going to Tribal Council was the absolute LAST thing I wanted to happen today. I know my name is on the chopping block, and I know at least three people are writing my name down; those three people being Mikey, Kayden, and quite possibly Jee. So, what I need to do is convince three other people to get on my campaign to vote out Mikey, it could work, but I know that they’ll be trying to gun for me.||”|
Kayden and Jee have a conversation by the waterwell about the upcoming vote.
Jee (to Kayden): I think we know who you’re going to be voting out.
The camera shifts to Naeha walking on the beach.
Kayden (to Jee): She has been a thorn in my side since Day 1, getting rid of her will give me so much pleasure inside.
Jee (curious): So Naeha’s your choice?
Kayden (nodding his head): I’m not gonna waver on that. I mean, I know Mikey sat out in the challenge, but all he was really gonna do was distribute the weight. There’s no use in really getting rid of Mikey. If anything, between Mikey and Naeha, at least Mikey’s someone who appears to be loyal. If Naeha’s gonna be so two-faced, the least she could do is make one of them pretty.
Jee (nodding his head): You have a good point. My only problem is, that if Naeha gets voted out, there won’t be another conviniently bigger target on the tribe.
Kayden (confused): I don’t get it. (chuckling) Naeha is the best candidate to go home.
Jee (to Kayden): But if we vote off someone else such as Mikey, we can easily place Naeha on the chopping block until the merge. That way, we can get rid of her next before the jury begins.
|“||Kayden is so adament about voting out Naeha, but I’m just not so sure to be honest. I proposed the idea of getting rid of Mikey, simply because we don’t know how he operates. All that I really know from him is that he’s a veteran. Whereas we know Naeha’s not liked by anyone on the tribe, and she’s an easy target to get rid of next. If we vote her out, that means Kayden or myself could possibly go home next.||”|
Jee (to Kayden): I’m saying this because I like you, and I trust you.
Kayden (laughing): I’m on a strict diet of <expletive>, sorry bro.
Jee (to Kayden): Anyways, I’m trying to state. It’s probably the best move for the both of us, that we make this vote simple, and get rid of Mikey.
The camera shifts to Mikey who is putting on his shoes whilst sitting in the shelter.
Kayden: Jokes aside, Mikey’s an asset to us in my opinion if we’re gonna work together. First of all, I think he likes the two of us and would be interested in working in an alliance with us. What’s the use of voting him out? He has Albert, and I have Geraldine, and you have Candice. This six could potentially run the game.
Jee (to Kayden): I voted against Candice last Tribal, luckily, she has no clue about that.
Kayden (to Jee): Then don’t tell her.
Jee (shrugging his shoulders): I get what you’re saying, but what happens if we vote Naeha out and we lose the next challenge.
Kayden (to Jee): Then we’ll vote either Candice or the Blue Collars out. It’s as simple as that. Albert would be my personal pick.
Jee (rubbing his forehead): I’m just wondering about the long haul how this could affect the tribe.
Kayden: Listen Jee, is your ass on the block tonight?
Jee (shaking his head): Not that I know of.
Kayden (nodding his head): Then stick with our plan. Or you might actually end up on the chopping block.
Jee takes a deep breath as we see Kayden biting his lip in concern.
|“||For <expletive> sake, Naeha has been aggravating everyone since the beginning of this game. She has no social skills, no social awareness, and she’s just cancer to this tribe. I don’t know what good it would do by voting Mikey out instead. Jee is standing there next to me saying ‘Oh but Naeha could be useful to us in the future’. Have you been alive for the past three days?!||”|
We transition to Naeha, Geraldine, Albert, and Candice sitting by the beach having a conversation.
Candice (looking down at the sand): It sucks that we have to vote someone out today.
Naeha (shaking her head): I just thought we had it.
Albert (to Naeha): Personally, I blame Kayden. (camera shifts to Kayden laughing with Jee & Mikey). I think if he hadn’t been joking during the challenge, he wouldn’t have stumbled and we would’ve gotten everybody through the challenge. Especially when Daniel dropped out.
Naeha (to Albert): You’re Azumi buddy is not doing so well either.
Albert (curious): What’s wrong with Mikey?
Mikey (to Albert): Mikey’s not a nice guy.
Geraldine & Candice look at Naeha with a confused look on both of their faces.
Geraldine (to Naeha): I haven’t really talked with Mikey, so how would I know?
Naeha (moving towards Geraldine): Oh, but he’s so rude.
|“||I’m willing to lie, cheat, and steal if it means winning this game; I’ve said that countless times before. And if I need to tell a little white lie along the way to get people to vote my way, I’m willing to do just that. This game is all about strategy in my opinion, and if you’re not social and strategic, you’re not going to make it far in this game.||”|
Geraldine: How is he rude?
Naeha (to Geraldine): So, you remember how you told me about your story with your husband a day or so ago?
Geraldine (nodding her head): Yeah, what about it?
Naeha (to Geraldine): Well, Kayden told Mikey about it.
Geraldine (shrugging her shoulders): Okay? I don’t mind that he told others about it.
Naeha (to Geraldine): I walked by the two of them, and Mikey was laughing at you. He said that your husband should “hang in there”.
Geraldine’s jaw drops in disbelief, as Albert & Candice look at each other in shock.
Candice (shocked): He did not just do that.
Naeha (smiling and nodding her head): Oh yes, he did. Mikey and Kayden were laughing at Geraldine the entire time. Kayden even imitated her crying as well.
Albert (shaking his head): Mikey’s not the type of person to do something like that, I hope.
Naeha (to Albert): Well, you know who my vote’s going for.
Candice (nodding her head): Yep. He’s gone.
Geraldine stands up from where she was sitting at.
Geraldine (crossing her arms): That’s just infuritating.
|“||Naeha just informed me, that Kayden went to Mikey, and made fun of me because of a story I told them about my husband. I’m not one to be angry at much, but if this is true, then I will have no problem voting for either of them. So, I basically am wanting to confront Kayden and Mikey and ask them ‘Did you do this?||”|
Geraldine walks over to Kayden, Jee, and Mikey (all three of them are sitting in the shelter relaxing), when she comes over.
Geraldine (to Mikey): Hey Mikey, I have a question for you.
Mikey (sitting up): Yeah, what’s up buttercup?
Geraldine: So Naeha told me something that really concerns me, and it’s about you and Kayden.
Kayden (rolling his eyes): Geraldine, this is Naeha. Remember that she’s the girl who you voted out previously.
Geraldine (to Kayden): Well, she’s telling me that you told Mikey about the story I mentioned about my husband a day ago, and that you guys were mocking me. Telling my husband to, in a comedic fashion “Hang in there”.
Kayden raises his eyebrows as well as Mikey, who is surprised.
Mikey (surprised): I don’t remember haring about your husband at all.
Kayden (to Geraldine): I did not tell Mikey anything, nor would I’ve joked about your story. I may be an ass<expletive>, but I’m not one to joke about a specific victim of depression.
Geraldine (to Kayden): Well then why is she going around telling me this? Candice also believes it, and says she’s writing Mikey’s name down tonight if this is true.
Kayden (shaking his head): Because she’s trying to stay in the game.
Jee (shocked): I have no clue what the <expletive> is going on.
Mikey (shaking his head): Me neither.
Geraldine (to Kayden): Both Candice and Naeha are saying you guys were laughing at me and that you were mocking my husband.
Mikey: I would never mock anyone, let alone someone who suffered from severe depression.
Kayden (shaking his head): Geraldine, think of it as this. She’s on a tribe with the two people – me and you – who were gunning for her at the last Tribal. She wants to put Mikey’s name out there because he’s a veteran of the Vietnam War.
Geraldine & Mikey look at Kayden with an additional surprise expression.
Kayden (to Geraldine & Mikey): This is all a ruse to get people like Albert, Candice, you, and Jee to try and gun for the two of us – Mikey & I – it is full-on manipulation. She is manipulating you guys into believing that Mikey & I are such disgusting asshats. Well, I take that back. I am an asshat, but Mikey definitely is not.
Mikey (shaking his head): So, Naeha’s been gunning for me for what reason?
Kayden (to Mikey): Naeha’s been talking <expletive> about how much you’re a “pig” or a “baby killer” because you served in Vietnam. After you left, she was talking to me and Jee about it. It’s the god’s honest truth. I have evidence in Jee, am I right?
Jee (nodding his head): She did state that she disliked Vietnam veterans. And this was after you left the conversation the four of us had.
Kayden (to Mikey): And this is an Asian defending a Vietnam vet.
Jee begins laughing at Kayden’ comment, and playfully slaps him on the arm.
Mikey (shaking his head): I just can’t believe someone can be like that.
Geraldine (to Jee): And you said this was true, Jee?
Jee (nodding his head): What do you want me to swear on, I’ll do it.
Geraldine (to Kayden): So Naeha’s been lying about you guys making fun of my husband?
Kayden (nodding his head): Yep. Once again, I may be an insensitive prick, but that story nearly brought me to tears. I’m not joking, I never mocked your story, nor have I even mocked you throughout the game. You’re literally the only person on the original No Collar Tribe that I have refused to make fun of.
Mikey (looking down): I never heard about this story you’re talking about, Geraldine. I don’t know why she’s framing me like that.
Geraldine (smiling): I trust you Mikey, but the problem is, why would she lie about this?
Kayden (to Geraldine): She wants to stay in the game. To her, the ends justify the means so to speak. If she needs to expose someone’s worst secrets to benefit herself or receive one extra vote to support her, she’ll do that to get the end goal. That’s where she and I differ. Not once, have I ever exposed someones darkest secrets to my advantage.
Jee (angrily): That pisses me off.
Kayden (to Jee): I’ve made my mind up on who I’m voting for. If anyone has a brain in them, they will all vote out Naeha with me.
Mikey (shaking his head): I don’t really know if I can even vote for Naeha at this point.
Kayden (to Mikey): Why not? She’s literally gunning for you.
Mikey (to Kayden): Yes, but what about Candice?
Kayden (confused): What about her?
Mikey: Well I mean, she’s not only trying to gun for me, but we don’t know where she stands either. At least with Naeha we know she’s going to be a target anyhow and could go home next. With Candice, I’m not so sure.
Geraldine (nodding her head): I see your point, but right now it just irks me that Naeha is going around telling lies and using my story to her advantage.
|“||I was distraught whenever I heard that Naeha was unappreciative of our troops, and it just pains me. Personally, I’m not as angry as I am saddened, as I believe everyone has a right to their opinion. I guess I thought she was interested in me being a vet when she asked me if I served in Vietnam. The problem I have is keeping her or keeping Candice. Candice supported Naeha, and that concerns me. I’m aware at least that Naeha is trying to get rid of me. I know this sounds weird, but I’m not considering voting Naeha out. As stupid as it sounds, I believe it’s the best move for my game. In addition, Candice knows about my idol, and she’s the only person that does. If I vote her out, I won’t have to worry about other people noticing an idol in my pocket. Personally, I’d love to vote Naeha out for what she said, but strategically, I know it’s not the best choice for me.||”|
The sun begins to slowly set upon the Saeki tribe, and the seven members of the tribe begin grabbing their torches. We see Kayden very stern and focused on the outcome of what could happen at Tribal Council.
|“||Tonight is going to perhaps be more intense than the last Tribal I went to. I have no clue who’s going to be voted off, and although I know who I’m voting off, I could potentially have my torch snuffed tonight. At least last time I was confident I wasn’t gonna go home. Now, I’m shaking in my boots because the people that I believed I could trust, might be the top people campaigning for me to go home. At Tribal Council tonight, I am going to be unleashing the strategic version of Kayden Simms, and I am going to stop at nothing to make sure that Naeha is out of this game. It’s a matter of what the other tribemates think of it.||”|
Tribal Council - Night 13
The moon rises up and the sun is completely gone. A far-view shot of the Tribal Council area is shown before we see seven torches being carried by seven people, one for each person. Walking up the steps of the Tribal Council area would be all seven members of the Saeki Tribe. We hear an owl making noise in the background and intense tribal music playing in addition to the owl's noise. Everybody places their torch in their respective slot, and they all proceed to sit down.
Jeff Probst (sitting down): Welcome to the first Tribal Council as new tribes. Jee, last Tribal Council you appeared to be visibly upset at the results. Now that you're on a completely different tribe, what are your thoughts?
Jee (nodding his head): I would say we have a decent group of people. The original tribes was simply White Collar, Blue Collar, No Collar. Now we are in a tribe with people from different walks of life and different types of occupations aside from the same types of jobs.
Jeff Probst (to Jee): How confident were you when you saw the challenge today?
Jee (to Jeff): I mean, I've seen the challenge in previous seasons, and I was fairly confident that I'd be able to perform well. Unfortunately that wasn't the case as I was the second one out. However, both Kayden & Geraldine did a hell of a lot better than me, and if we only evened the weight out better aside from placing all the weight on one person, which is what we did, I think we wouldn't be sitting here.
Naeha (chiming in): Jeff, can I say something for a moment?
Jeff Probst (nodding his head): Absolutely.
Naeha: I don't believe we're a team. (Kayden rolls his eyes) I think we're haunted by two people in particular who are going to cause damage to our tribe if we keep them around any longer.
Jeff Probst (to Naeha): Who would those people be?
Kayden (interrupting Jeff): That would be Mikey and I.
Mikey looks over to Kayden, who continues to talk.
Kayden: Ever since the last Tribal Council we went to as No Collars, Naeha has been cramming the idea of "Let's get rid of Kayden" and has continued to make up false accusations against me, and now she's making accusations against Mikey that are completely untrue.
Naeha (to Kayden): That's a load of bullsh*t and you know it.
Kayden (to Naeha): Call it what you want, it's the truth.
Jeff Probst: Kayden, after Annie was voted out, and I remember you visibly being shocked at the results, what was - although you can probably say is - the relationship between you and Naeha?
Kayden (to Jeff): If I was a dog and she was a flower, I'd lift my leg up, and give her a shower.
Albert, Jee, and Mikey begin laughing as Naeha begins to get agitated at Kayden's comments yet again.
Jeff Probst (smiling): So I'm assuming the relationship is nonexistent.
Kayden (smiling and nodding his head): Yes.
Jeff Probst (to Naeha): Naeha, what are your thoughts on Kayden?
Naeha (to Jeff): Kayden is very immature. He likes to make jokes that are not only offensive to women and children, but are just gross. I mean, yesterday he told me a story about masturbation. What kind of person would bring that up in a conversation?
Kayden (to Naeha): It was a joke.
Naeha (to Kayden): You're not that smart.
Kayden (laughing and talking to Naeha): Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black? The smartest thing to come out of your mouth was a penis.
Naeha (angrily): You see Jeff?! All he talks about is inappropriate jokes about sex and <expletive>, it's not funny. It never was funny, and he just has the humor of a 5-year old.
Kayden (smiling and talking to Naeha): Naeha, comedy is subjective, you do realize that right? I've told you this thousands of times.
Naeha (to Jeff): And he just sits there with a cocky grin on his face like he's King of the <expletive> world! I'm just sick of his antics.
Jee (to Naeha): Well if we want to talk about antics, how about we talk about you lying about Mikey?
Candice looks over at Jee, and Jeff is curious to know what Jee is referring too. Mikey simply looks the other way whilst Kayden strokes his face.
Naeha (to Jee): What did I lie about with Mikey?
Jee (annoyed): Well, you claimed he and Kayden were picking on Geraldine following some story she told about her husband. If that wasn't bad enough, you openly took a giant <expletive> on Mikey for serving his country.
Jeff Probst: Mikey, do you know what Jee is referring to?
Mikey (nodding his head): Yes I do. I told Naeha, Kayden, and Jee that I served in the military.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): Were you drafted?
Mikey (to Jeff): I volunteered.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): Ah okay. What happened with Naeha that caused Jee to say she was pulling antics?
Mikey (shrugging his shoulders): To be honest Jeff, I had no clue until a few hours ago when Kayden told me that she was saying I was a "pig" or something like that. I don't really know what went down. I kind of left mid-way through the four of us talking.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): The four of you meaning you, Kayden, Jee, and Naeha.
Mikey (nodding his head): Of course. I guess Naeha was agitated at me for being a vet or something like that.
Naeha rolls her eyes and is visibly agitated at Mikey's response.
Jeff Probst: Naeha, that got a reaction out of you.
Naeha (to Jeff): Yeah, because I know a lot of people who served in Vietnam, and I know that many of those people have killed Vietnamese women and children.
Kayden (rolling his eyes): Oh god, here we go.
Naeha (to Jeff): As a pacifist, I think that war and violence against anyone is unjustifiable. And it would be different if Mikey was drafted, but he decided to ENLIST - key word being enlist - in the war. He openly volunteered to kill these innocent Vietnamese men, women, and children to benefit his own self. And that's a patriot?
Mikey pulls his long white hair back as he is obviously not enjoying this conversation. Kayden facepalms himself whilst Geraldine looks at Naeha in confusion.
Jeff Probst: Geraldine, what's your take on Naeha's opinion?
Geraldine: Oh, (laughing) I don't think I'm the right person to answer that, with all due respect to both Naeha and Mikey. I mean, I think that Mikey, whether he would be drafted or not, if he fought on the battlefield for our country, I think it should be worthy of praise.
Mikey has his head down and does not seem to be looking back up. Jeff notices this and proceeds to talk to him.
Jeff Probst: Mikey, when Naeha says that enlisters are not patriots, which she can correct me if I'm wrong, but when Naeha says that, what do you think inside?
Mikey (looking up at Jeff): I'm respectful of everybody for their opinion. I mean, I didn't think one day when I was 19, "Hey, I hope for a war so I can fight in it and receive respect". That's like saying "I hope something bad happens to me so people give me sympathy". I obviously disagree with Naeha, but it kind of brings me back to those times when I returned home.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): When did you return home?
Mikey: Around December, so almost 47 years from now.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): And what happened when you did get home?
Mikey (to Jeff): Well, I'm one of the few lucky ones (chuckling), but a lot of my brothers in the war returned home and were called "baby rapists" and "cold-blooded murderers". I have a friend now, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, and threw his uniform in the garbage after returning home.
Jeff Probst (to Mikey): Were you given criticism for serving in your country before?
Mikey (nodding his head): Yes, but not anything violent. I mean, I never wore my uniform for 10 years cause I didn't want to get spit on by the hippies who were just about ready to kill anyone who did.
Jeff Probst: Naeha, what are your thoughts when you hear about vets who have been disrespected by others in terms of violent clashing?
Naeha (to Jeff): Well obviously I disagree with people like Mikey being physically harassed. But everyone is entitled to their opinions as Mikey said, and I think people like Mikey are just as open to criticism as any of us. We can't just say "Oh I'm gonna spare him cause he served our country". This is Survivor and anything can happen in this game.
Intense music begins to play in the background as we see Jeff standing up.
Jeff Probst (standing up): You are right Naeha, anything can happen. And something is about to happen right now. It is time to vote... Candice, you're up.
Candice walks up to vote. It is revealed that she voted for Mikey to be voted off the island, however, her confessional is not revealed.
Albert walks up to vote, his vote is not shown.
Geraldine walks up to vote, her vote is not shown.
Naeha walks up to vote. It is revealed that she voted for Mikey to be voted off the island.
|“||You're icky, you're idiotic, and you're going home. Good night. (sarcastically smiles)||”|
–Naeha (voting for Mikey)
Kayden walks up to vote. It is revealed that he voted for Naeha to be voted off the island.
|“||You're the reason I'm pro-choice.||”|
–Kayden (voting for Naeha)
Jee walks up to vote, his vote is not shown.
Mikey walks up to vote, his vote is not shown.
We see Mikey returning from the voting booth to sit down. Once he does, Jeff focuses his attention on the seven members of the Saeki tribe.
Jeff Probst (smiling): I'll go tally the votes.
Camera shots are shown upon Mikey, Naeha, and Kayden. We also see the moon poking out of one of the trees behind the Tribal Council area. Jeff then returns with all seven votes in the voting urn.
Jeff Probst: If anybody has found the hidden immunity idol and you would like to play it, now would be the time to do so.
Everybody is either looking at Naeha, Kayden, or Mikey. Candice is seen heavily staring at Mikey, hoping he does not pull out an immunity idol. Ultimately, Mikey chooses not to play it, and after a few seconds of silence, Jeff breaks the awkwardness.
Jeff Probst: Okay, once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes.
Jeff opens up the urn and takes out the first vote.
First vote: MIKEY (1 - 0)
Mikey nods his head, smiling at the results, but secretly hoping that he does not get voted out with an idol in his pocket. Kayden also nods his head, and is confident that the results will go in his favor anyhow.
Second vote: NAY-HAH THE SLAY-AH (1 - 1)
Naeha looks directly at Kayden, who smiles back. When Naeha flips the lifeguard off Kayden replies, "Aww, I love you too".
Third vote: MIKEY (2 - 1)
Mikey shakes his head in surprise, as well as Jee, Kayden, and Albert. All four of the guys are wondering who cast that second vote. As Albert is visibly shocked, Mikey assures him that "It should be all good".
Fourth vote: CANDACE (2 - 1 - 1)
Candice raises an eyebrow in shock that she is receiving a vote, but brushes it off considering both Mikey & Naeha are the two primary targets in the vote. Mikey begins licking his lips.
Fifth vote: NAEHA (2 - 2 - 1)
Naeha rolls her eyes in frustration as Jee pats Kayden on the back. Mikey looks over to see Albert looking directly at him. Albert gives a wink at the former Rescue Worker.
Sixth vote: NEHA (3 - 2 - 1)
Naeha buries her hands in her face as she is not expecting the results that she is being given. Albert gives a smile, whilst Mikey looks at Candice with a frown. Mikey asked Candice, "What happened?"
Seventh vote: Fifth person voted out ... Naeha. You need to bring me your torch.
Naeha lets out a sigh before standing up to retrieve her belongings. Kayden sits back and smiles at the outcome of tonight's vote.
Naeha (annoyed): Well Geraldine, you just cost yourself a million dollars.
Geraldine takes a deep breath as Kayden is grinning in the direction of the lady he had recently voted out of the game. Naeha grabs her torch, and Kayden does not hold back from letting out one more remark.
Kayden (to Naeha): Now you can go play in oncoming traffic.
Naeha (rolling her eyes): You're chances of winning are just as good as mine at the moment. Keep up the good work, cocksucker.
Kayden (to Naeha): Yeah, f you want to hear my comeback, you should go lick your mom's face.
Jee once again bursts out laughing, as well as Albert. Mikey looks on in disappointment, whilst Candice is irritated with the results just as much as Naeha is. Naeha proceeds to bring her torch over to Jeff Probst, who has his snuffer with him. Once Naeha places her torch in the slot, Jeff proceeds to say his infamous catchphrase,
Jeff Probst (to Naeha): Naeha, the tribe has spoken.
Naeha (nodding her head): Thank you Jeff.
Naeha's torch is immediately snuffed as we see Kayden smiling. Mikey takes a deep breath before we resume to Jeff talking to Naeha.
Jeff Probst: (to Naeha)Time for you to go.
Naeha proceeds to walk down the steps of Tribal Council in disappointment. The majority of the tribe is pleased with the outcome, whilst Candice is just shaking her head in annoyance. After Naeha fades off into the night, we see Jeff looking back at the now six remaining members of the Saeki tribe.
Jeff Probst: Well, someone previously stated that this is, in fact, the game of Survivor and anything can happen. Turns out that the person who said that, was the person who just got voted out. Will this elimination give you hope, or will it be the first step to your downfall? Grab your torches and head back to camp. Goodnight.
The members of the Saeki tribe retrieve their torches and head back to their camp, away from the Tribal Council area. Ending credits are shown, along with the outro music, and after a few seconds, the screen turns pitch black.
Naeha (4 votes)
Albert, Geraldine, Jee, Kayden
Mikey (2 votes)
Candice (1 vote)
Unaired Voting Confessionals
|“||Not only do you want my closest ally out of this game, but you lied to my face about something that happened with another person. For that, I can't trust you.||”|
–Albert (voting for Naeha)
|“||You're idol cannot hide your disrespect.||”|
–Candice (voting for Mikey)
|“||Naeha, I know this is the second time I'm writing your name down. I want to say that last time, I didn't vote personally, and this time I didn't vote personally either. I think you have a bright future ahead of you, and I can't wait to see what the world has in store for you. One suggestion I would have would be to tone it down when debating.||”|
–Geraldine (voting for Naeha)
|“||You are nothing more than a despicable piece of garbage. You not only yell at a guy who served out <expletive> country and helped us in battle, but you take advantage of someone like Geraldine, who trusted you, and cared about you. I truly believe that you are 100% deserving of this vote, and I genuinely hope I never see you in my life again.||”|
–Jee (voting for Naeha)
|“||Candice, I'm terribly sorry for voting against you. I think you're a wonderful person and someone who I believed I could trust. However, you plotted to get me out of this game when I believed you trusted me, and with that, I cannot spare you. This is nothing personal, this is strictly to help my game.||”|
–Mikey (voting for Candice)
|“||I support strong women who are helpful and supportive. Geraldine, you backstabbed me and you lied to me, I have no respect for you. I hope Geraldine goes home next because she's someone who promised me that she'd have my back, but then went along with Kayden to blindside me. I'm beyond frustrated with the outcome of tonight's vote because I believe Mikey should be sitting here. He's someone who doesn't have any reason to be in the game. I can't wait to see this tribe of imbeciles self-destruct, which I believe they will. Good luck Saeki, because without me, you guys are nothing.||”|
