Story

Day 16

Table Mountain

On Table, Earl was helping Gertha making breakfast. He still didn't think that voting out Zeuia was fair.

Gertha: It's just a game, Earl. I'm sure Zeuia understood it.
Earl: Yeah, maybe. It's just, what if I mess up in the next challenge? Are you gonna vote me out then?
Gertha: That's not how it's judged.
Earl: It was yesterday though. Sorry, here, let me help you with that.
Gertha: This is all we have left.
Earl: Really? That's barely enough for all of us.
Gertha: Yeah, I know. Guys! We're out of rice!

We have to get more food. Bobby isn't catching as much as we hoped for, so let's hope the reward today is food.

–Earl



Shoshone Mountain

On Shoshone, the tribe were preparing for the challenge.

Helle: I just want to show you guys I can be used. If it's a puzzle, I'm ready.
Trenton: We all appreciate that, Helle, but are you sure that you can win? I mean, there are other people here who are really good at puzzles.
Helle: So am I.
Trenton: All right, fair enough.
Marcus: If it's a puzzle, you get a shot.
Helle: Thanks, guys.

Challenge

As the two tribes arrived, Jeff was standing by two tables with big sliding puzzles.

Jeff: Welcome. In this challenge, one person from each tribe will solve a sliding puzzle. The numbers from one to ten has to be in the correct order. The fist person to solve it, wins for his or her tribe. Does everyone understand?
Everyone: Yes!
Jeff: You are playing for steak. Twelve big steaks. All right, Table, who will play for you?
Earl: I will.
Jeff: Earl for Table, and Shoshone?
Helle: Me.
Jeff: Helle versus Earl. Good, get ready.

Earl, being a math teacher and good with logical puzzles, quickly managed to get ahead. In the end, however, he began getting trouble. Helle caught up nicely, but eventually Earl finished first.

Jeff: Congratulations, Table. Come take your reward. I will see you all tomorrow.

Shoshone Mountain

Shoshone returned, Helle embarrassed.

Helle: Guys, I'm so sorry. You were right...
Trenton: Don't worry about it.
Helle: No, really. I'm sorry.
Trenton: It wasn't your fault. You did good, Earl was just better.

I feel so bad for losing. I'm sure I'll be the next to go if we don't win the next immunity challenge.

–Helle


Of course I blame Helle. It was her fault, but I can say that to her.

–Trenton



Day 17

Shoshone Mountain

Early in the morning, Lysander, Rob, Marcus, Nellie and Helle were sitting by the fire.

Nellie: So, Lysander, why that beard? You look like a homeless, no offense.
Lysander: I was a homeless three years ago...
Nellie: Oh... I'm sorry.
Lysander: Don't be. My wife and I separated and she took everything.
Rob: Women, right.
Lysander: Right... this priest came up to me and offered me the job as gravedigger. He was a good man.
Rob: So you're a gravedigger? Like, everyday you dig graves?
Lysander: Gravediggers can do other things than dig graves.
Rob: Hm, don't know about that.

Lysander has a touching story, sure.

–Marcus


Not buying it. That guy is lying us straight in our faces. He's never been homeless, he's just trying to get us to not vote for him

–Rob


What I said was true. I was homeless.

–Lysander



Challenge

The tribes arrived to the challenge. Jeff was standing at the foot of a long hill.

Jeff: Welcome. In this challenge, six people from each tribe will run up this hill and solve small puzzles on the way. These puzzles will give you keys, which you have to use to open a chest at the top of the hill. In that chest, pieces for a final puzzle is placed. First team to finish their final puzzle first, wins. Does everyone understand?
Everyone: Yes!
Jeff: Shoshone, three people from your tribe will have to sit out. Who will that be?
Helle: Me, Brown and Lysander.
Jeff: Okay, get ready, people.

Table got quickly ahead and Earl began working on the first puzzle.
Shoshone followed nicely, Al solving the first puzzle a bit faster than Earl.
At the second puzzle, both tribes were doing good, and they followed each other nicely. At the fifth puzzle, the last one before the final puzzle, Gene was having issues. This gave room for Rob, who solved it and got the final key.
Shoshone finished their puzzle even before Gene solved the fifth.

Jeff: Congratulations, Shoshone. Come take the idol. Table, I'll see you tomorrow at council.

Table Mountain

As Table returned, they set over the last steaks and sat down by the fire.

Gene: I'm sorry, guys.
Earl: No, it was just as much us. We could have went down and helped you.
Bobby: Yeah, that's true. It was more us than it was you.
Gene: Well, I still feel a bit bad about it.

Sure, I am a candidate for the council. But I don't hope it will be me.

–Gene


I am never going to vote for Gene. He's one of the people here, along with Gertha, I talk with really well. I don't want to see him go.

–Earl


I am going to vote for Gene, because he made us loose today. The talk about it being our fault more than his is... just, no. It was all on him.

–Gloria



Day 18

Council

At the council, the first thing they were told to do, was to light a torch and set it behind them. They did that, and then Jeff began talking.

Jeff: Welcome to council. Cameron, have you enjoyed your steaks?
Cameron: Man, that was the best reward you could give us. We had no rice left and that was just... amazing.
Jeff: You got protein, why did you loose?
Cameron: That fifth puzzle, we screwed up.
Jeff: Who did?
Cameron: Us. The people who didn't went down to help Gene.
Jeff: Gloria, do you agree?
Gloria: No, I don't. It's all on Gene.
Jeff: Gene, what do you think?
Gene: I'm disappointed over myself, sure. But it's not reason enough to vote me out.
Jeff: Wasn't that why you voted out Zeuia?
Gene: No. Zeuia was being rude and...
Earl: Jeff is making a valid point there. I still disagree with the fact we voted out Zeuia.
Jeff: Bobby. Is there something wrong with your moral, or with Earl's?
Bobby: Neither. We have different opinions, that's it. There should be room for that.
Jeff: Let those be the words. One by one, you go up and write the name on the person you want out of Survivor. You have to vote, you can't vote for yourself. In case of tie, it will be settled by duel. Bobby, you're up.

One by one, they all went up and wrote the names on the people they wanted out. After everyone had voted, Jeff got the urn and began revealing the notes.
He kept turning the votes until there was 3 votes on Gloria and 2 votes on Gene.

Jeff: That means there is one vote left. If that vote is on you, Gloria, you are out. Is it on Gene, the two of you will meet in a duel. Here we go... the sixth person voted out of Survivor, Gloria. Gloria, get your torch and get up here.
Gloria got up and got her torch. Jeff put it out with the words 'the tribe has spoken'.
