Challenges

Reward Challenge: Drink-Off
The castaways will participate in a tournament style competition drinking various amounts of cow blood. Last person standing wins reward.
Reward:A bar b que with tea and french fries.
Winner: Kyle [Ruth, Andrew]
Immunity Challenge: Drop A Log
With one hand, the castaways would hang on to a rope with several knots tied into it. The rope would be tied to one end of a heavy log. The other end of the log would be connected to a pivot point on a platform that the castaways would stand on. The castaways would start at the knot closest to the end of the log. After 5 minutes, they would change hands and move one knot further down the rope. This would increase the angle of the log at the pivot point and increase the weight that the castaways would have to hold. The castaway who held on to the rope the longest would win.
Winner: Cody

Previously On Survivor

With his only ally now gone, Cody turned to Callie and few others. Following the reward challenge, Cody made his plea to Callie, Courtney, Brownie and Goliath. While Callie was quick to jump in and help, others weren't so certain. When Cody won his second immunity challenge, it became clear it was Yul or Callie after Callie voiced her resentment for Yul's actions. At tribal, the lines were made even more clear. Cody's side and hope he is true to his deal or Yul's side and bare through his constant yelling that's not on you. When the votes came Callie was declared the first member of the jury in a 4-3 vote.

Story

Night 24

The tribe arrives back at camp following tribal.

Quote1Okay. What idiots besides Callie voted with Cody?Quote2- Yul
Quote1Why are they idiots?Quote2- Cody
Quote1Because they voted with you.Quote2- Yul
Quote1Yul, stay calm and we will figure out who voted you.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Just chill okay.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Maybe.Quote2- Yul
Quote1You can't go and make a fool of yourself because of a couple votes.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Too late.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Shut up Courtney.Quote2- Brownie
Quote1Yul has just been who he is this whole time.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1And I will find out who voted for me.Quote2- Yul
Quote1I'm in to helping you with that.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Me too.Quote2- Brownie

Courtney stares at Brownie.

Quote1Let's just take this day to day.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1The culprits will come.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Alright. Watch your backs whoever you are.Quote2- Yul
Brownie I think is trying to throw me under the bus. He better have voted Yul. I just want to figure out who voted Callie. Him or Goliath.

–Courtney


With Andrew still in control I need to work my way back in or at least act like I'm still in. If that means throwing some under the bus I will do it.

–Brownie


Yul wants to figure out who voted for him. I didn't and I hope they realize that and don't kck me to the curve.

–Goliath



Day 25

Sueca

Yul, Andrew, Ruth, and Kyle are hanging around the shelter. Everyone else has gone in separate directions.

Quote1Okay, we need to figure out just exactly who voted with us last night.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1And then vote out the other idiots right after Cody.Quote2- Yul
Quote1Exactly.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1How are we going to do this? We can't just walts up to people and say hey who did you vote for.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1True. Okay, then how?Quote2- Yul
Quote1How did you find out Emilie wanted you gone?Quote2- Kyle
Quote1Now that is an idea.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1What the f*** are you thinking?Quote2- Yul
Quote1We just happen to be at the right place at the right time when some one slips on who they voted for. All we need is one person to say they voted Callie or two to say they voted Yul.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1This is a good plan.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1It has worked many times.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1The only question is when do we do this.Quote2- Yul
Quote1Just try to stay in the background of things.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Out of sight, out of mind.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Pretty much.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Yeah. I want them gone after Cody.Quote2- Yul
Quote1Or before if Cody wins.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1True.Quote2- Kyle
The two that voted for me last night better watch their back. I'm taking names and cutting b1tch3s until I know exactly who did.

–Yul


Andrew wants to find out who voted with COdy. I don't blame him. Yul almost got sent home because of them and that would have meant me, Andrew and Kyle also gone. It would have also meant Cody being in a good spot to win. That's not to happen.

–Ruth


I need to watch out on who I trust. I need to finish this investigation quickly otherwise it could turn on me.

–Andrew



Sueca Night

Cody and Courtney are outside the shelter by the fire.

Quote1I can't believe Yul is still here.Quote2- Cody
Quote1I know. Brownie or Goliath. One of those two flipped.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1I figured it would be one of them. You were pretty close to Callie.Quote2- Cody
Quote1That and I was getting annoyed with Yul.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Well whatever the case is. Thanks for sticking with me.Quote2- Cody
Quote1No problem. We just need to get them to turn on each other.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1How do you suggest we do that?Quote2- Cody
Quote1I'm not sure. They have no idea who voted with them. We could try and talk with Goliath and Brownie to Vote Yul again and force a tie.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1That could work. If those four don't know who voted with them then they could be more prone to voting out the person who helped them.Quote2- Cody
Quote1Pretty much. I don't even think they know I voted for Yul.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1They probably don't. That could save you some votes.Quote2- Cody
Quote1Quote2- Courtney
Quote1It could but Brownie does trouble me because he could tell Andrew that I did.Quote2- Cody
Quote1He won't.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1You sure?Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Yeah.Quote2- Cody
Quote1Well I'm going get some rest for tomorrow.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Night.Quote2- Cody

Courtney walks back to the shelter. Brownie can be seen watching in the woods. When Courtney gets to the shelter, Andrew's eyes can be seen open.

I over heard Courtney and Cody talking and now known Goliath flipped on us. I can't say anything though because then it puts me in a bad spot.

–Brownie


I really hope we can get Goliath and Brownie to work with us because if not then we are just lined up for elimination.

–Courtney


So I overhear Courtney say she voted Yul. Looks like we have our first victim should Cody be safe again. It then comes down to Brownie or Goliath. Which one of them voted with us and which one voted with Cody? I will find out.

–Andrew


Day 26

Sueca

Yul and Goliath are hanging around the beach just talking.

Quote1I can't believe I was so close to be voted out.Quote2- Yul
Quote1Really? I thought you were all confident you were staying.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1I am. I just can't believe there are still some stupid people around that want to vote with Cody.Quote2- Yul
Quote1True.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1I will vote those who voted with him out as soon as I can. Which means after he goes unless he wins again.Quote2- Yul
Quote1I so hope he doesn't win.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1Me either.Quote2- Yul

Andrew and Brownie walk up from camp.

Quote1What's up Andrew?Quote2- Yul
Quote1Ruth and Kyle should be coming.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1What for?Quote2- Goliath
Quote1To talk.Quote2- Brownie

Ruth and Kyle walk up.

Quote1Alright we're here. What did you want?Quote2- Ruth
Quote1I saw Courtney talking with Cody last night. She admitted she voted Yul.Quote2- Brownie
Quote1I also heard the same thing.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Oh now she is going down.Quote2- Yul
Quote1Well that solves one person's vote.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1It bring up this. Why are all of us here?Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Cause one of you is lying about not voting for Yul.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1I didn't vote Yul.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1I didn't vote Yul either.Quote2- Brownie
Quote1It's not me lying about this. I don't do that.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1I didn't do it.Quote2- Kyle
Quote1It wasn't me.Quote2- Andrew

Everyone looks at Yul.

Quote1Do I even have to answer? I can't vote myself.Quote2- Yul
Quote1He has a point there.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Well somebody is obviously lying.Quote2- Brownie
Quote1It doesn't matter who right now. Right now are more important things to worry about.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Stopping Cody.Quote2- Yul
Quote1We can't let him win anymore.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1If he keeps this up he could make it to the end.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1We can't have that.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Alright. Let's stop Cody and take him out of this game.Quote2- Yul
Quote1Or Courtney if Cody happens to win again.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1That better not happen.Quote2- Yul
Quote1It shouldn't.Quote2- Ruth
Right now I was able to swing my way back in with Andrew. I need to find a way to throw it on Goliath with out putting the heat on me.

–Brownie


Andrew is an interesting one. I could tell he was looking at everyone's reactions. He is on to something.

–Ruth

Yul and Ruth sit down at the table. Jeff puts in front of each of them an eight ounce glass of cow blood.
Jeff, "Survivors ready...Go."
Yul and Ruth pick up their glasses. Yul waste no time chugging it down and opening his mouth.
Jeff, "Yul moves on. Andrew and Goliath are next.
Andrew and Goliath sit down at the table. Jeff puts in front of each of them an eight ounce glass of cow blood.
Jeff, "Survivors ready,,,Go."
Andrew and Goliath pick up and begin drinking them. Andrew barely edges out Goliath in finishing his glass and opening up his mouth.

–Jeff Probst


After everyone is back on the mat except Kyle who is standing by Jeff.

Alright, Kyle pick two people to join you.

–Jeff Probst


Kyle "Ruth and Andrew."

Alright. Ruth and Andrew can stay here with Kyle. The rest of you grab your stuff and head back to camp.

–Jeff Probst


Reward Location

Kyle, Ruth, and Andrew are sitting around the table.

Quote1Thanks for picking us Kyle.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1It's whatever.Quote2- Kyle
Quote1Seriously though this is good.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Yul should be able to keep everyone in tack while we are gone.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Hopefully he doesn't piss everyone off.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1That's true. He could do that.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1We need to keep up our energy so that we can beat Cody.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1That's for sure.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1I don't know how much longer I could take him being around.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1I can handle him at camp. It's the challenges that it bugs me.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1True. He is so good. Kyle why aren't you talking?Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Huh? Oh. I was just listening.Quote2- Kyle
Quote1Sure you were.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Kyle we need you to help us beat Cody. You were good today.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1I was thirsty.Quote2- Kyle
Quote1Well be hungry for a win.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Cody can easily win his way to the finals.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1I hope not.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Me either but it's possible.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1I know.Quote2- Ruth
This reward is nice and all but it's only a small victory. This wasn't immunity. Cody can still continue to screw up our plans and we still don't know who the last vote for Yul was from.

–Andrew


It's nice to get away from things but at the same time you are never away from the game. Everyone back at camp is talking and it could be about you.

–Ruth


Sueca Night

Cody and Goliath are hanging outside the shelter.

Quote1So I already talked with Brownie and I'm wondering if you would be willing to vote with us.Quote2- Cody
Quote1Why?Quote2- Goliath
Quote1Tie the votes and force rocks. That's the only way we can take the game away from them.Quote2- Cody
Quote1What about your win streak?Quote2- Goliath
Quote1Eventually I won't win and they will jump on taking me out.Quote2- Cody
Quote1That is true.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1If we can get at least one of them gone before that happens then you guys can vote me out and then take the game.Quote2- Cody
Quote1That sounds like an interesting plan.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1It's all I've got. We trust luck is on our side.Quote2- Cody
Quote1And if it's not.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1Then at least we went down trying.Quote2- Cody
Quote1True.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1So are you willing to help me out?Quote2- Cody
Quote1Yeah. I would be.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1Great. Thanks.Quote2- Cody
Quote1No problem.Quote2- Goliath
Now that I have everyone on board, I can just flat out win. I will out if I have to but I'm not stupid enough to lose and trust these people.

–Cody


Cody says he won't win every time. That is debatable. We can beat him at somethings but there isn't anything for sure that says he won't always win. We know he won't throw them anymore. I don't trust him enough to stick with him.

–Goliath



Day 27

Immunity Challenge

The tribe arrives at a field location.

Welcome to today's immunity challenge. Cody, I will take it back.

–Jeff Probst


Cody walks to Jeff, hands him the necklace and walks back.

When you let go the log will fall smashing the mask. Last person standing wins immunity. We'll draw for spots and get started.

Ruth then loses her grip sending her log down on the mask.
Jeff, "Ruth is out. We are down to five."

–Jeff Probst


Callie walks in and takes a seat on the other side.

Quote1Cody, once again you are safe. It has to feel good?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1It does in some ways but others it doesn't.Quote2- Cody
Quote1How so? Last two tribals you have pretty much said you were alone in this game.Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1Because any chance of me getting an ally has met with that persons end.Quote2- Cody
Quote1It is going to happen again tonight too.Quote2- Yul
Quote1I think it's a mistake.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Being allies with Cody is a mistake.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1I am not that bad of a person.Quote2- Cody
Quote1You kind of are.Quote2- Brownie
Quote1What are you talking about Brownie? Did you not vote Yul last tribal?Quote2- Courtney
Quote1I don't know what you are talking about.Quote2- Brownie
Quote1So you say Goliath voted Yul.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1I did not do that either.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1Andrew, has it been a round up who voted for Yul and take them out before or after Cody?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1Yes. Courtney was caught and now she has to pay the price.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1How about you get rid of some one who is known to flip around like Brownie?Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Because we don't know for sure he even voted with you.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1Kyle, what are you thinking?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1It's whatever.Quote2- Kyle
Quote1Courtney has to go this time and then that other person goes next time.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1Goliath, what if that means you?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1I didn't vote for Yul so I don't see why it should be.Quote2- Goliath
Quote1So you say it was Brownie?Quote2- Andrew
Quote1It wasn't me.Quote2- Brownie
Quote1I wouldn't be surprised if it was Andrew.Quote2- Cody
Quote1You are more delusional than ever if you think I would betray my allies.Quote2- Andrew

Quote1No I'm not. We just all hate you.Quote2- Andrew
Quote1Brownie or Goliath voted Yul. That is for next time.Quote2- Ruth
Quote1This time is the known culprit.Quote2- Yul
Quote1But why not get rid of the unknown first.Quote2- Courtney
Quote1Because then we face getting rid of the wrong person.Quote2- Andrew
And with that it is time to vote. Kyle, you're up first.

–Jeff Probst


Kyle walks to the urn, places his vote and walks back. He is followed by the rest of the tribe ending with Ruth.

I'll go tally the votes.

–Jeff Probst

Once the votes have been read the deision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. I'll read the votes.

–Jeff Probst



First vote...Courtney


Courtney...2 votes Courtney


Brownie...2 votes Courtney, 1 vote Brownie


Courtney...3 votes Courtney, 1 vote Brownie


Brownie...3 votes Courtney, 2 votes Brownie, 3 votes left


Courtney...4 votes Courtney, 2 votes Brownie, 2 votes left


Eleventh person voted out of Survivor: Brazil and the second member of our jury...Courtney. You need to bring me your torch.

–Jeff Probst


Courtney gets up, grabs her torch and walks to Jeff.
Jeff, "Courtney, the tribe has spoken. It's time for you to go."
Courtney walks off out of tribal and into the night.

If voting with Cody is the crime then one person should be worried. It is up to you to know who that person is though. Grab your stuff and head back to camp. Good night.

I can't let them know it was me so I have to vote for you.

–Brownie


It is to be you tonight because you chose your side.

–Goliath


I don't know if you are with us or not but if you are then this may help you later.

–Courtney



Final Words

I hate that I had to get the boot tonight. Brownie or Goliath are lying their butts off and getting away with it. Cody won't win forever but if they continue how they are then he won't have to. I look forward to seeing who survives.
