Tribe History

Sarawak started out more successful than their rivals, Sabah. The only person not working was Helga. But Sarawak managed to constantly win challenges. Walter provided food for everyone and tried to be a strategist. Violet and Vanessa formed a close friendship and made a final two deal, and brought Benny in to help them. Ryan and Charlie also formed a friendship and a final two deal. When Jane got tired of Helga's laziness, she formed an alliance with the men of Sarawak. After losing their first and only challenge, Helga was taken out. This made the tribe stronger and they managed to enter the merge with seven members. Walter visited the Sabah camp and didn't like it, so Sabah moved to Sarawak.


  • Every male Sarawak member made it to the final four.
