Previously On Survivor...

Walter didn't take starvation well. Benny had trouble dealing with the fact that he had a hand in killing two pacts. Ryan and Charlie decided that Jane needed to go. And Peter and Vanessa, being outcasts, made a pact of two. In the reward challenge, Charlie won the ability to call his father for the first time in 29 days.  In the Immunity challenge, Walter emerged victoriously. At Tribal Council, Jane was voted out unanimously, leaving Vanessa as the only woman left. Six are left, who will be voted out tonight?

Day 31

Charlie was happy about overthrowing Jane, eliminating the supposed biggest competition. Walter was feeling much better after his hunger troubles, and decided to spear fish for food, claiming that if he's voted out, everyone will starve.

Now that I'm feeling better, I can properly do what I do best: catch fish!


Benny went to Ryan and told him to be careful. Benny said that Ryan was making himself appear threatening by taking such strong leadership of the guy's alliance. Ryan began to fear that Benny may be plotting a betrayal.

Ryan really shouldn't be acting as such a strong leader. People will begin targeting him.


Hopefully Benny isn't getting any crazy ideas. There is no room for traitors in this alliance.


Meanwhile, Vanessa feared that there was a guy's alliance, but was honored that they chose her as their last victim. Vanessa and Peter figured that Walter would be the safest vote, for being the current biggest threat to win.

I remember trying to make an alliance with Walter. Personally, I don't want him to go. But Peter's got to keep the Sabah tribe alive.


Day 32

Sarabah met with Probst for the reward challenge. In the challenge, it came down to Peter and Ryan. But Ryan won reward. 

Probst visited the Sarabah tribe to pick up Ryan. He told Ryan that he could pick one other person to join him for breakfast on a yacht the next morning. He chose Charlie, and he and Probst left. Ryan enjoyed the trip on the luxurious boat. While everyone back at camp weren't enjoying themselves.

I would have liked to have won that challenge. I can't stand it at camp. It would have been pleasant to get away.


Day 33

Charlie joined Ryan for breakfast on the yacht. During this, they decided that Peter should go at the next Tribal, or he may work his way to the finals and win for having such a great underdog story.

I'm happy that I was chosen for the reward. It was nice to be away from the horrible camp conditions. Also meaning that it was a great place to discuss strategy.


Shortly after Ryan and Charlie returned, Sarabah went to their Immunity challenge, which was balancing. In the challenge, Benny fell first. Then Walter, then Ryan, then Charlie, leaving Vanessa and Peter, the two alliance outsiders. Both knew the consequences if either of them were to fall. But Vanessa fell and Peter won Immunity.

Back at camp, Ryan and Charlie weren't very happy about the challenge outcome, because they now had to vote out someone they didn't want gone yet. Peter, however, was happy about winning Immunity, but feared that his partner, Vanessa, may now be in trouble.

I'm safe tonight, but Vanessa will more than likely go. I have no means of protecting her.


At Tribal Council, Peter and Vanessa attempted to vote out Walter, for being a big likability threat, but the guy's alliance was fulfilled and Vanessa was voted out in a 4-2 vote. The remaining men then returned to camp, with Peter as the last alliance outsider.

Voting Confessionals

Good job at staying under the radar for so long. But your time's up.


Fishing isn't that hard, we can survive without you.


You really shouldn't be the one going tonight, but Peter has Immunity. Good job for surviving 33 days in your age.


You're a great man. I knew so since day 1. But at this point, the great men have to go.


Final Words

I'm not shocked at all. I saw that coming from the moment Peter won Immunity. It's quite an accomplishment to be the last woman standing. I should have aligned with the guys back in Sarawak. Good luck to you all.
