Previously on Survivor...
After the new Kufra's tribal council, Gwendolyn joined the tribe. The three remaining Kufras on the Kufra tribe decided to work together, finally. They plotted to get Gwendolyn out. At Scorpio, a five person alliance formed between Judas, Bianca, Hibiki, Dawn, and Montana to get Devin and Roberta out. At the combination reward/immunity challenge, Judas prevailed for Scorpio, keeping them safe for another three days. At Kufra, Drayden, Lilly-Bo, and VJ told three of the Scorpios to vote Gwen out. In the end VJ was voted out. Thirteen remain who will be voted out tonight?
Reward Challenge: Kicking and Screaming
One pair at a time, two players try to remove a member of the opposing tribe from a pole they’re holding onto and drag them across the finishing line. First tribe to get all three opposing tribe members across wins.
Immunity Challenge: Vampire Bats
Use your arms and legs to hang beneath a raised log for as long as possible. Last person standing on each tribe wins immunity.
Scorpio Winner: Judas
Kufra Winner: Aleskan
Kufra returns to their campsite, with mixed emotions.
|“||VJ was voted out last night, and I'm glad that little punk is gone, but it's a definite no on anyone flipping, so we really need to win immunity, otherwise we'll be gone.||”|
|“||Nice, only Kufras to go before we have the tribe to ourselves!||”|
After starting a fire, the six Kufras go to their shelter to sleep.
In the morning, Katniss and Aleskan are talking to each other.
Katniss: "Aleskan, do you believe that Gwendolyn is just using us for votes?"
Aleskan: "She's a smart girl, so maybe, but we'll deal with her later. She'll be the first to go from us four."
Katniss: "Should I tell Jeremy?"
Aleskan: "No don't tell him."
Katniss: "Why not?"
Aleskan: "Because, he's really close to Gwen, he'll never vote her out, and he'd probably tell her about it anyway."
In the shelter, Lilly-Bo and Drayden are talking.
Lilly-Bo: "So what are we going to do?"
Drayden: "All we can do is hope for the best."
Lilly-Bo: You mean an idol?"
Drayden: "Yes, then we idol one of them."
Lilly-Bo: "Which one?"
Drayden: "Jeremy, he's the least deserving of the four to win."
|“||Why Jeremy next? A) He's the weakest physically, but strongest mentally. B) He's just riding on their coattails. And C) He's been with Gwendolyn since she joined the tribe.||”|
Later the two tribes received treemail instructing them to go to the challenge area. Scorpio arrives first, followed by Kufra. Jeff reveals that VJ was voted out at tribal council last night. He then explains the challenge:
Jeff: "One pair at a time, two players try to remove a member of the opposing tribe from a pole they’re holding onto and drag them across the finishing line. First tribe to get all three opposing tribe members across wins. Wanna know what you're playing for?"
Jeff: "The winning tribe will get one minute to loot the losing tribe's camp, taking anything they can carry. Scorpio, you have one extra member, who's sitting out?"
Montana: "I am."
Jeff: "Montana, take a seat on the bench. I'll give you all a minute to strategize."
The first out were Judas, Roberta, Aleskan, and Lilly-Bo. Dawn and Drayden were holding onto the poles. They all ran out to their targets. When they arrived at the poles, Aleskan put his arms around Dawn's abdomen and tried to pry her off the pole. Judas went to pry Drayden's feet from the pole, and Roberta did the same thing to his hands. Aleskan was still trying to pull Dawn off the pole and Lilly-Bo began to try and unhinge her feet from the pole. Judas and Roberta easily get Drayden off the pole, holding him by his hands and feet, to the finish line. Scorpio leads 1-0.
The next to go were Bianca, Roberta, Katniss and Aleskan. Devin and Gwendolyn were holding onto the poles. All four ran out to the poles. When they arrived, Aleskan and Katniss began Judas and Roberta's strategy. Roberta put her arms through Gwendolyn's armpits and pulled back, forcing Gwendolyn's hands off the pole. Katniss and Aleskan were quickly failing, as Devin resisted them trying to pry his hands and feet off. Bianca began to pry Gwendolyn's feet, with success. Roberta quickly dragged Gwendolyn to the finish line. Gwendolyn did flail around, but it didn't get her loose before crossing the finish line. Scorpio leads 2-0.
The third group was Judas, Bianca, Katniss and Lilly-Bo. Hibiki and Jeremy were holding onto the poles. Everyone ran out to the poles. Both pairs began to use Roberta's strategy last round. Judas and Katniss out their arms through their opponent's armpits and begin to pull them off the pole. Bianca and Lilly-Bo began to help their partners pull them off. Judas and Bianca got Jeremy off the pole with ease, and ran back to the finish. Katniss and Lilly-Bo got Hibiki off the pole and headed for the finish line. Both guys flailed around, but didn't get loose. Judas and Bianca, who were ahead, picked up their pace. Katniss and Lilly-Bo did the same. Judas and Bianca crossed the finish line first, winning the reward.
Jeff: "Congratulations, Scorpio for winning reward. You may head out now."
After the reward challenge, the men of Scorpio go off to loot Kufra, leaving the women behind. All four talk in the shelter.
Roberta: "I need to know what you guys are thinking about, I've see the five of you talking, and I wanna know what."
Montana: "It's about you and Devin."
Roberta: "What about us?"
Bianca: "Well, one of you two is going home, but we did decide on Devin, because he's going behind your back to get you out."
Dawn: "Yeah, he's told everyone of us to vote you out."
Montana: "Sorry sweetie, but he can't be trusted."
|“||I can't believe that bastard! He goes behind my back and tries to get me out! Kurt was right Devin is nothing but a mother(bleep) weaselly ass, with a small (bleep). He is so getting a piece of my mind when he returns||”|
At Kufra, the three Scorpios begin to loot the camp. Judas grabs the blanket, Hibiki gets the pillows, and Devin grabs the tarp. After the looting, the three Scorpios leave the camp.
The next day, Roberta decides to talk to Devin.
Roberta: "So Devin, have any plans to get anyone out?"
Roberta: "Really, that's not what I heard."
Devin: "Why, what did you hear?"
Roberta: "I heard that you want me out!"
Devin: "So what?"
Roberta: "You made a pact to me and Lilly to the final three!"
Devin: "Really, I don't care, no alliance from Kufra ever succeed, and ours won't either."
Roberta: "You (bleep) little bastard. Our alliance is over!"
Devin: "Whatever, your torch is good as snuffed."
The two part ways, Roberta angry and Devin happy.
At Exile Island, Katniss goes out to try and find the idol. She follows the clue she found to a midway point between the oasis and a sand dune. She begins to dig in the sand but has a hard time finding it. At nightfall, she covers the hole she dug and returns to the shelter at exile.
|“||Well, I spent the last day and a half finding the idol. I would seem easy to find, but it's actually really difficult to find underneath the sand.||”|
After having some rice, Katniss decides to get some rest.
The two tribes and Katniss received treemail instructing them to go to the challenge area. Both tribes and Katniss arrive and Jeff tells them that tonight both tribes would be going to tribal council. He then explains the challenge:
Jeff: "Use your arms and legs to hang beneath a raised log for as long as possible. Last person standing on each tribe wins immunity. However, the last person standing overall and their tribe will go after the losing tribe's council."
The castaways begin to hang from the log. Many hang from their legs, and others used their arms or hands. After Jeff said the challenge begun, Lilly-Bo, Jeremy, and Drayden fall.
Elapsed Time: 15 Minutes
After the fifteen minute mark, Jeff stated they could change positions, but had 15 seconds to do so. Everyone but Judas changes their positions, Judas still hanging from the log from his legs. Gwendolyn and Montana fall from the log after changing positions.
Elapsed Time: 45 Minutes
After the forty-five minute mark, Roberta, Hibiki, and Dawn fall. Jeff stated they had fifteen seconds to change their positions if needed. Devin, Bianca, and Katniss change their positions. No one falls off afterwards.
Elapsed Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
After the hour and a half mark, Jeff once again stated that they may change their positions if needed. No one changes their positions. Soon afterward Katniss and Devin fall off the log. Jeff stated that Aleskan won immunity, but needed to stay on the log to make sure that Kufra went after Scorpio's tribal council.
Elapsed Time: 2 Hours After the two hour mark, Bianca drops out. Jeff announces that Judas won immunity for Scorpio, but needed to outlast Aleskan to make sure Scorpio's tribal council occurs after Kufra's.
Elapsed Time: 2 Hours 15 minutes After two hours and fifteen minutes of holding onto a log, Aleskan drops out of the challenge.
Jeff: "Aleskan, Judas the two of two have immunity for your tribal councils. Kufra you will attend tribal council first, then followed by Scorpio. You may head out."
At Kufra, Aleskan, Katniss, Gwendolyn, and Jeremy talk about who their voting out.
Katniss: "So have you decided who you want out?"
Aleskan: "Drayden, if we ever want to win, then we need to vote out dead weight."Gwendolyn: "Sounds good to me."
Katniss: "Okay, then I'm in, too."
At Scorpio, the alliance of five talk in the shelter about the vote.
Montana: "So which one of them is going home tonight?"
Dawn: "Devin, if we merge, then we need somebody we can trust. Roberta's a mother, she's loyal and trustworthy. Devin, will flip over to the majority when he can."
Hibiki: "Should someone tell Roberta?"
Judas: "No, the two are most likely going to vote for each other, so we really don't need to tell her."
Hibiki, Dawn, and Montana leave the shelter. Bianca and Judas stay behind.
Bianca: "I have to ask, Judas, how could you stay on that log for so long without getting a headrush?"
Judas: "I, uh, sleep like that sometimes with my loft bed at home."
Bianca: "That's, um, cool."
Later, Kufra arrives for its tribal council. Everyone puts their torches behind them and takes a seat.
Jeff: "Drayden, this is your seventh tribal council, does it worry you that you could be voted off soon?"
Drayden: "It worries me that I could be voted off soon, but how close the merge is, I may stick it out for another three days, as I wouldn't be a threat in challenges."
Jeff: "So Aleskan do you think it's a good idea that Drayden should stay, becaue like he said, he's weak, he's not a threat."
Aleskan: "Though that may be true, if Kufra actually wants to win immunity, then we'd be smart to vote dead weight, like Drayden out."
Jeff: "Lilly-Bo, do you believe that what Aleskan is right?"
Lilly-Bo: "No, Drayden is useful, you don't realize it."
Jeff: "Gwendolyn, is there anyone else that is weak?"
Gwendolyn: "Well, Jeremy is physical weak, but he is very intelligent, meaning he's useful in mental challenges."
Jeff: "Jeremy, do you believe that?"
Jeremy: "I know what Gwendolyn said is true, but I'm not a real threat."
Jeff: "Aleskan, are you going to give up immunity."
Aleskan: "I'm keeping it."
Jeff: "Alright with that, it's time to vote. Lilly-Bo, you're up."
One by one, the castaways vote. After they finish voting Jeff goes and gets the urn.
Jeff: "If anyone has a hidden immunity idol, you may play it now. Alright, once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. First vote.....Drayden. Jeremy. Next vote, Drayden. Drayden, he leads 3-1. Eighth person voted out of Survivor: The Sahara..........Drayden. Please bring up your torch."
Drayden grabs his torch and brings it up to Jeff.
Jeff: "Drayden, the tribe has spoken."
Drayden waves good-bye and leaves the tribal council area.
Jeff: "Well, apparently nothing has changed since the last tribal council, you may head on out."
Kufra leaves the tribal council area. A few minutes later, Scorpio arrives for its tribal council. Everyone puts their torches behind them and takes a seat.
Jeff: "Well, Bianca, I haven't seen you in a while, what is happening over at Scorpio?"
Bianca: "Well, it's been the same, but different. We've all united, but lost a bit of morale after Aleskan and Katniss left, but we've keep our heads up."
Jeff: "Roberta, how has life been different on the Scorpio tribe."
Roberta: "Well being on a successful tribe, is different, but the backstabbing from Kufra carried over."
Jeff: "Montana, who's backstabbing Roberta?"
Montana: "Devin is."
Jeff: "Devin, why are you backstabbing Roberta?"
Devin: "I can't stand the bitch anymore, plus she would of never gotten me to the finals anyway."
Jeff: "Dawn, who is going home?"
Dawn: "One of the Kufras is."
Jeff: "Hibiki, which one is it?"
Hibiki: "We've decided to keep it a secret for now."
Jeff: "Alright. Judas are you giving up your immunity?"
Jeff: "Alright, it's time to vote, Devin, you're up."
One by one, the castaways vote. After they finish voting Jeff goes and gets the urn.
Jeff: "If anyone has a hidden immunity idol, you may play it now. Alright, once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. First vote.....Roberta. Devin. Next vote, Devin. Devin. Devin, he leads 4-1. Ninth person voted out of Survivor: The Sahara..........Devin. Please bring up your torch."
Devin grabs his torch and angrly slams it up to Jeff.
Jeff: "Devin, the tribe has spoken."
Devin angrly leaves the tribal council area.
Jeff: "Well apparently you've detected someone who's untrustworthy. You may head out."
Scorpio heads back to ther campsite.
