Story

Night 21

The ten remaining castaways come back after two intense tribals to see a large crate. Franklin takes the key and unlocks the box, which contains food. Despite wanting to know why Jessica flipped, Jillian decides to not ask her until the morning.

Tonight, Jamie was supposed to go but Jessica flipped and sent Elliot packing. I have no idea where I stand at this point.

–Jillian



While they eat, Guylan asks what the tribe name should be. Nick suggests the name ‘Omniglot’, which he claims means ‘Welcome’ in Polynesian. Everyone agrees. In reality, it’s from a language website Nick used before coming on Survivor.

Omniglot is a website I used to learn the language to name the merged tribe. But after twenty one stinkin’ days, I forgot every word except the sites name so I said it means welcome and everyone believes it.

–Nick



Knowing that Guylan would be wary of Mick after using the idol, Mick looks around the picnic for an idol clues, which he finds under the basket of bread. He takes it and slips it into Guylan’s pocket, giving him a wink.

I know Guylan will be suspicious of me after I blindsided Evan, so as a sign of loyalty, I gave him the clue to the merge idol. I’m gonna try and get him out sooner or later, but I need him for the next two votes so Ha’apai can gain majority and Niua will go what I tell them to.

–Mick



So Evan was sent home tonight. I was ninety percent sure Mick didn’t have an idol but he did. I got back thinking ‘He’s gonna flip. He’s totally gonna flip.’ But when we got back, he found the clue to a new idol and gave it to me, proving his loyalty to Ha’apai so I can rest a little easier.

–Guylan


Day 22

In the morning, Jillian questions why Jessica voted Elliot. Jessica explains that Franklin forced her to, threatening her with a rock draw because he wanted to keep his idol for the merge. Jillian becomes annoyed.

I knew Jillian would be pissed at me for blindsiding Elliot but I had no choice. I can’t let the fate of my game be in the hands of a colored rock.

–Jessica



I was on a roll the whole premerge. I had my solid alliance of five, had full control and then Franklin pulls the carpet from beneath my feet. I feel like I’m the next to go and I did not leave my kid at home to become the first jury member.

–Jillian



Meanwhile, Jamie goes to the well with Bailey. Jamie explains her whole situation at Niua and how she was treated. Jamie them says she is willing to flip to their side to get rid of Jillian.

I know I would be the first one out if it’s a Niua final five. In my opinion, people could respect me for going from the bottom of a tribe to the final three while Jillian and Jessica can’t win. Laura might stick with me but Franklin is here to win. I need to make my move now.

–Jamie



Jamie came up to me saying, if you need a sixth vote, I’m your sixth vote. I don’t know if I can trust her because we don’t know anything about her. She could be for real or she could be faking this whole story. We’ll just wait and see.

–Bailey



Bailey gives the information to Barbie and Guylan. Guylan is also suspicious of Jamie’s intent.

Jamie can either help us or hurt us. I don’t fully trust her so we’ll see how things play out.

–Guylan



At camp, Mick comments about how peaceful camp life is without Evan. Laura asks how he was treated by his tribemates. Mick tells her while Guylan, Barbie, Bailey and Nick treated him with respect, Evan, Will, Sarah and Taylor were rude to him and constantly targeted him. Laura says that she’s glad he made it farther than them.

Mick’s been through hell and back to get to this point. But that makes him more of a threat. In my opinion, he should go soon.

–Laura



Laura and Franklin talk at the well about what they should do. They think they should stick Niua strong because Ha’apai had a lot of strong members and that they would go to the Final Three with Jamie.

Right now, we have to get rid of every Ha’apai member. They’re all smart and strong physically. Then Laura and I can walk to the Final Three with Jamie.

–Franklin



Mick then meets up with Guylan to search for the new idol. The clue reads that the idol is buried around a place they’ve been at numerous times. Guylan then suggests that the idol is either at tree mail or the well. Mick searches the well while Guylan searches the treemail. While Mick is unsuccessful, Guylan finds the idol and sticks it in his bag, having no intention of sharing it with Mick.

Right now, I trust Mick seventy-five percent. I trust him enough to go with him a few more votes, but not enough to share my idol with him.

–Guylan



Guylan meets up with Mick and tells him he found a bunch of holes around tree mail and that someone from Niua might have it. Mick believes Guylan. Guylan then shows Bailey and Barbie the idol and the three promise to keep it between them.

Guylan is my number two at this point and him showing me the idol proves I can trust him and he won’t try and backstab me.

–Barbie


Day 23

Franklin checks the chest to see if they have any food from the merge feast left. He notices that Jamie is up and goes to talk to her. Franklin says that they will have to stick with Jessica and Jillian until they don’t need them. Jamie is hesitant about the plan, which worries Franklin.

I want nothing to do with Jessica and Jillian. Those two treated me with no respect and I want them gone.

–Jamie



Jamie not wanting to work with Jillian and Jessica worries me. I just hope she knows it’s smart to stay with them.

–Franklin



Meanwhile, Jessica and Jillian discuss their possible voting options. While Jillian wants to get rid of Jamie, Jessica reminds her that if they side with Ha’apai, they will hold majority and get rid of them next. Jillian agrees and says that she will be civil with Jamie. However, when she tries to talk to Jamie, Jamie gives her the cold shoulder.

Jillian wants Jamie gone and so do I. However, in order for us to get to the end, we need her around for a little bit.

–Jessica



Acting civil around Jamie doesn’t do a damn thing. She just ignores me completely. If she screws me over, I will destroy her.

–Jillian



Nick watches the dysfunction of Niua with great please and tells Guylan everything he sees.

Niua is a mess. I think we could use this for our advantage to gain the majority.

–Nick



I still can’t believe those people survived this long. It’s a miracle.

–Guylan



With rain clouds moving in, Laura suggests they try and keep the fire going. She then comes up with a plan to cut a piece of the picnic blanket from the merge feast and use sticks to make a mini-tarp to keep the rain off the fire. After doing so, it begins to rain but Laura’s plan works and the rain stays off the fire.

I did the same thing about a month before coming out here. I prepared myself mentally for the rain but we need fire so I did the same thing back home and it worked.

–Laura



Laura basically saved our skins with that plan.

–Barbie



Barbie and Guylan then have a private chat. Barbie thinks that Laura is a social threat and should be taken out. Guylan thinks that if Jamie is really flipping, she wouldn’t want to take out Laura. Barbie doesn’t trust Jamie and Guylan is wary of her. The two then agree to talk about voting plans after the immunity challenge.

Day 24

The ten castaways then meet with Jeff for the next immunity challenge. Jillian and Nick give back the necklaces and Jeff says only one person will win immunity. After explaining the challenge, the Omniglot tribe gets on their respective pole.

After about ten minutes, Mick comes down from his pole. Another fifteen minutes go by before Barbie slips and lands on her back. Jeff asks if she’s alright, to which she responds she is. Bailey lowers herself a little bit but holds on strong. The challenge goes on for another hour. Jamie keeps her eye on Jillian, who is digging deep. Jamie loses focus for a second and slides down her pole, eliminating herself. This causes Jessica to snicker.

I thought it was funny when Jamie fell on her ass.

–Jessica



Another half hour goes by before Guylan gives up, citing elbow pains. Nick comes down as well, leaving Bailey as the only Ha’apai member left. Jeff notes that Franklin hasn’t budged since the start of the challenge. Jessica loses focus herself and falls off the pole, leaving Laura, Franklin, Bailey and Jillian. Laura climbs down the pole, saying her legs will give out. Bailey tries to readjust herself but slides off the pole. Jamie begins to worry that Jillian will win immunity. Another hour passes before Franklin strikes a deal. They will have a rock, paper, scissor match to see who will win. Franklin wins the match and Jillian sides off the pole, winning Franklin immunity. Jamie smiles at her foes defeat.

When Jillian climbed off that pole, angels sang.

–Jamie



At camp, Jamie goes to Guylan and tells him she will vote Jillian off. Guylan asks about the Niua idol and she tells him Franklin has it. Guylan suggests Jessica because Jillian is an obvious target and Franklin may use the idol on her. Jamie agrees. Later, Guylan talks with Bailey, Mick, Nick and Barbie and tells them everything Jamie said. Bailey suggests voting Jamie to see if she’s telling the truth. If she is, she will go and they will hold majority, if she isn’t, it will flush out the idol. Nick is scared of a tie vote and drawing rocks but Mick comments it’s a calculated risk.

I have no idea what will happen tonight. It all depends on Jamie.

–Nick



Meanwhile, Franklin gathers the Niua members and says that the biggest threat from the old Ha’apai tribe is Guylan since he is social and physical. Jessica suggests Nick because he is the least likely to have an idol. Franklin agrees with Jessica and changes the votes to Nick. Jillian is still worried about Jamie.

Jamie is a loose cannon. I never know what she’s thinking.

–Jillian



Jillian has a private talk with Franklin and asks to use the idol on her, since she is the most obvious target. Franklin s hesitant about the idea.

I could use this idol tonight and secure every Niua a spot in the top five. I just don’t want to use it on Jillian.

–Franklin



Minutes before tribal, Laura tells Jamie to vote Nick and that sticking with the Niua’s is her best bet to win the game.

I’m seriously reconsidering my options. I can go with the Ha’apai’s or go with my old tribe, who made me their red-headed step child at the start. I have full control of the game right now so hopefully it doesn't backfire.

–Jamie



At Tribal Council, Franklin comments that it’s good to have immunity when the tribe is split 5-5 and comments how it is still a tribe game. When asked about rocks, Jessica says everyone is willing to go to rocks. Jamie then says that the way she was treated on Niua weighed heavily in her decision making. Guylan says that watching the Niua tribe interact was interesting because of how they treated each other. Laura says that it was a bad move to show Ha’apai any form of weakness in their tribe. Mick says that it was only Evan that made him consider flipping but with him gone, he’s staying loyal to Ha’apai. The ten are then called up to vote.

Jeff asks if anyone wants to use the hidden immunity idol. Franklin stands up and gives his idol to Jillian, who gives it to Jeff, making her immune. Guylan stays still, keeping his idol. All of the former Ha’apai members and Jamie all smirk. Jeff then pulls out four Nick votes, wiping his smirk away and making him sweat. Jeff then pulls a Jessica vote, causing her to put her head in her hands. When Jamie thinks Jessica is going, she is shocked to see a Jamie vote. She looks at Barbie, who keeps her sights on Jeff. Jamie then sees four more Jamie votes, blindsiding her and making her the first member of the jury. The other Niua members look in shock as the Ha’apai members gain majority. Still shocked, Jamie has her torch snuffed by Jeff and leaves Tribal. Jeff comments that, while Ha’apai has majority, anything can happen. The Final 9 then leave Tribal.

Voting Confessionals

If this works, then oh my God, I can't believe it. If it doesn't, hope one of you draws the cursed rock.

–Bailey



Sorry Jamie, just a safety measure.

–Barbie



Nick, you're a great guy but out of that five, you're the least likely to get the idol.

–Franklin



Jamie, sorry for lying to you. Just part of the game.

–Guylan



This is for everything you did the past twenty-four days. I won't miss you.

–Jamie



I personally think you're the bottom man over at Ha'apai so it won't be to sad to see you go.

–Jessica



I really hope Jamie stays loyal but I have little faith she will.

–Jillian



Please work.

–Laura



Jamie, I need Niua to do what I say later in the game so I hope this vote seals the deal.

–Mick



Sweet woman, but that makes you a threat.

–Nick



Final Words

I have no idea what the hell happened. Guylan, Barbie, and all them played me and I have no one to blame but myself. My emotions got the better of me and it's gonna send four pissed Niua to the jury with me so I'm not looking forward to that.

–Jamie
