Previously On Survivor...
After the elimination of Jeremy, Gwendolyn found herself on the outs. The Alliance of Eight got stronger as a group, but two people were selected as sacrificial lambs. At the reward challenge, Gwendolyn won by keeping her seesaw slow and steady. While at the reward, she tried to convince Roberta into getting her and and three others to vote with her. Roberta retaliated by throwing a steak at her face and telling the others. Later at the immunity challenge, Aleskan won by sheer luck. At tribal council, Gwendolyn was unanimously voted out 8-1. Eight remain, who will be voted out tonight?
Reward Challenge: Drum Roll
Each member of a four-person team (chosen by chain selection) holds a different-sized drum, and they attempt to bounce three balls between them down a course and to the team’s finishing barrel (one at a time), heading over several waist-high hurdles and returning to the last of two gates they passed through (or to the start) if they drop it. First to get all three balls in their barrel wins.
Reward: Overnight stay at a resort
Winners: Bianca, Judas, Dawn, and Hibiki
First Immunity Challenge: Touchy Subjects
In a majority rules competition, the tribe would answer questions pertaining to a different subject and castaway. If a castaway was correct and guessed the majority answer, where they would cut another castaway's rope. If all three ropes were cut, the castway's ragdoll would be burned up, and they would be eliminated. Last player standing would win immunity.
Second Immunity Challenge: C.A.T.
Each contestant has an answer cube and must turn the cube to the side which they think has the best answer. If they are correct, they remain in the challenge. If not, they are out of the challenge. Last one remaining wins.
Aleskan (passed to Katniss)
After the elimination of Gwendolyn, everyone felt some relief.
|“||Getting rid of Gwendolyn was smart, we really should've listened to Drayden, Lilly, and VJ, she would do anything for a majority.||”|
The final eight then went to the shelter, and fell asleep.
The next day, the final eight received treemail instructing them to go to the challenge area. The eight arrived to the challenge area and Jeff explained the challenge:
Jeff: "Each member of a four-person team holds a different-sized drum, and you'll attempt to bounce three balls between them down a course and to the team’s finishing barrel (one at a time), heading over several waist-high hurdles and returning to the last of two gates they passed through if you drop it. First to get all three balls in their barrel wins. Wanna know what you're playing for?"
Jeff: "The winning team will go for an overnight stay at a resort, complete with massages, food, and a comfy bed. We'll draw for captains."
After the draw, Judas was captain of the red team and Katniss for the purple team.
Jeff: "Ladies first, Katniss, choose your first teammate."
Aleskan and Bianca walk to the purple and red mats respectively.
Roberta and Dawn walk to the purple and red mats respectively.
Montana walks to the purple and by default, Hibiki goes to the red team. Jeff then announces the start of a challenge. Bianca begins to bounce the ball on her drum for purple, Hibiki does the same. When they reach the first hurdle, Montana bounces it to Roberta, but fails to continue to bounce it. Hibiki passes it to Judas, who successfully has the ball bouncing. The purple team headed back to the start. The red team continues to the first gate. The purple team gets back to the first hurdle, as the red team heads for the second one. At the first hurdle, Montana passes it back to Roberta, but it bounces off her drum. Aleskan gets the ball to bounce on his drum. At the second hurdle, Judas passes it to Dawn, who gets it to bounce on her drum. Both teams begin to advance to the next gate. The red team breezes through the third hurdle, but the purple team struggles to get the ball past the second one. The red team gets their ball in their barrel and run back to the start. The purple team continues to struggle at the second hurdle, trying to get a point on the board. The red team successfully get past the first hurdle, as does the purple team gets past the second hurdle and get through the second gate. Once again, the purple team struggles, as the red team breezes through the second hurdle. Both teams get past the third hurdle and get their balls into the barrel. Both teams return to the start. Once again, the purple team struggles, as the red team advances. After the purple team got past the first hurdle, the red team was already past the second hurdle. The red team races to get finish, but begin to lose some of their rhythm, with the purple team close behind. The red team got back together, getting through the third hurdle and getting the ball into the barrel.
Jeff: "Judas, Bianca, Dawn, and Hibiki win reward. Before you leave, select someone from the other team to sen to exile."
Hours later, Judas, Bianca, Dawn, and Hibiki arrived to their room in the resort. In the room was a television set, two queen-sized beds, a cart with real food on it, and a couple stacks of DVDs.
Dawn: "My god, this room is so gorgeous!"
Hibiki: "It sucks that we only have it for the night."
Bianca: "All the more reason to enjoy it now."
After eating, the four decided to watch a movie. Judas was looking threw them.
Judas: "Cool,they put Halloween in here."
Bianca: "The original or remake? The original was better than the crappy remake."
Judas: "The original. Wait, are you a fan of slasher flicks, too."
Bianca: "Yeah, I've seen a lot of slasher films."
|“||Bianca is really surprising. I thought she would like the sappy, awful romantic comedies or something like that, not gory, bloody slashers.||”|
Dawn: "Could we not watch some slasher, please, maybe something a little less violent."
Hibiki: "Dawn, don't worry, if anything scares you, I'll be here."
|“||First off, I'm not the kind of person that likes to watch anything being killed, which is why I became a vegan. Secondly, it was nice of Hibiki to comfort. Oh my, did I just say that. *cameraman shakes his head* Um, could you edit that part out, please?||”|
The remainder of the night was them watching some movies, and during one point, the two began to make-out. They all went to bed for the night.
Early in the morning, Montana wakes up, with Katniss tending the fire.
|“||I've been out of the loop for a while, and I need someone to tell me what's up. Katniss is perfect, because I have more history with her than Roberta||”|
Katniss: "What's up?"
Montana: "I need to know what's going on and make it quick, Roberta will probably wake up at any moment."
Katniss: "We have two plans now. It'll depend on who wins immunity. If Aleskan wins, Roberta goes, if Aleskan doesn't, he goes."
|“||Well, my alliance seem to have two good people on the chopping block, and the good thing is, neither of them know it.||”|
|“||I didn't tell her the entire plan, which was to say that one was going over the other, and then Montana would go. I don't entirely trust Montana, she's been to Exile three times, she may have the idol now.||”|
Later, the four reward winners returned to camp. Everyone seemed really awkward with Hibiki and Dawn still making-out. Judas and Bianca then shared what happened on the reward.
|“||Normally, a person would be scared about a couple dominating the game. This isn't the case with Dawn and Hibiki. We should be scared of them making the finals, because they haven't pissed anyone off yet.||”|
At Exile Island, Aleskan does the usual looking for the idol. After looking for several hours, he returns to the shelter and makes a fire.
|“||Honestly, I've looked nearly all over Exile, but I can't seem to find the damn idol. At this point, the idol will be useless in a week, and someone's already found it.||”|
He then decides to get some
The next day, the final eight receive treemail, instructing them to go to the challenge area. After they arrive they notice ragdoll versions of themselves. Jeff then explains the challenge:
Jeff: "In a majority rules competition, the tribe will answer questions pertaining to a different subject and castaway. If you are correct and guessed the majority answer, you would cut another castaway's rope. If all three ropes were cut, the your ragdoll will be burned up, and you would be eliminated. Last player standing would win immunity. We'll start the quiz."
After taking the quiz, the eight castaways were given a booklet with their names in it.
Jeff: "First question, who do you think couldn't survive on their own?"
The eight give their answers.
Jeff: "Everyone, but Montana said Montana. She says it's Judas. The tribe decided on Montana, everybody, but her take a swing at someone's ropes."
Katniss strikes Montana. Aleskan strikes Hibiki. Judas strikes Aleskan. Bianca strikes Montana. Roberta takes the last strike on Montana, eliminating her and burning her ragdoll. Dawn strikes Katniss. Hibiki also strikes Katniss.
Jeff: "Montana, with your ragdoll burnt, you're out. For the rest of you, here's the second question. Who would you like to be stranded with?"
The seven give their answers.
Jeff: "Judas, Katniss, Bianca, Aleskan, and Roberta say Aleskan. Dawn and Hibiki say each other. The majority said Aleskan. Katniss, Bianca, Aleskan, and Roberta, take your strikes."
Judas strikes Katniss, eliminating her. Katniss take her revenge strike on Judas. Bianca strikes Dawn. Aleskan puts another strike on Judas. Roberta gives a strike to Hibiki.
Jeff: "Katniss, you are out, take a seat on the bench. For the third question, Who is the nicest person on the tribe."
Everyone gives their answer.
Jeff: "We are split down the middle. Judas, Bianca, and Roberta say Bianca. Aleskan, Hibiki and Dawn say Dawn. This was close, but Bianca won by a slim majority. Judas, Bianca, and Robert take your strikes."
Judas gives Roberta a strike. Bianca strikes Hibiki, eliminating him. Roberta takes her shot and eliminated Judas.
Jeff: "Hibiki, Judas, take a seat on the bench. Currently, Bianca has all three strikes, Roberta, Aleskan, and Dawn all have two each. Fourth question, Who is the most helpful at camp?"
The four reveal their answers.
Jeff: "Everyone says Katniss, which is the right answer. Everyone take a strike."
Bianca strikes Dawn. Roberta strikes Bianca. Aleskan strikes Bianca, again. Dawn takes the final strike at Bianca, eliminating her.
Jeff: "Bianca, take a seat on the bench. Fifth question, Who is the most artistic?"
Everyone gives their answer
Jeff: "Once again everyone has the same answer. Everyone says Judas, as did the results. Everyone take a shot."
Dawn strikes Roberta. Roberta strikes Dawn, eliminating her. Aleskan takes the final swing at Roberta, eliminating her.
Jeff: "Aleskan wins immunity and has a one in seven shot of winning. For the rest of you, one of you will be going tonight."
At camp, Katniss and Judas are talking in the shelter.
Judas: "You told Aleskan it's Roberta first, then Montana."
Katniss: "I assume you did the same with Roberta?"
Qattara then goes to tribal council and do the normal procedure. Dawn and Hibiki continue their make-out session.
Jeff: "Let's bring in the members of our jury, Lilly-Bo, Jeremy, and Gwendolyn, voted out at the last tribal council."
Lilly-Bo, Jeremy, and Gwendolyn walk in. Gwendolyn is wearing a green long-sleeved shirt under a green jacket, a headband, and a green mini-skirt. All three take a seat on the bench.
Jeff: "Aleskan, with your fifth immunity, do you feel like a major target?"
Aleskan: "No, I feel pretty safe with my alliance, I don't feel like I'm going anywhere anytime soon."
Jeff: "Roberta, do you view Aleskan as a threat?"
Roberta: "Well, yes and no. A few of the immunities he won, like the first one, was pure strength, but the last few, such as the last immunity, were sheer luck."
Jeff: "Hibiki, Dawn, can you two give anyone that could also be a threat?"
Dawn and Hibiki continue to make-out and ignore Jeff.
Jeff: "Dawn? Hibiki?"
Judas: "It's no use the two haven't decided to come for air yet."
Jeff: "First, Bianca, what happened at the reward that those two are so close?"
Bianca: "Well we were watching a movie and during it they sudden discovered their feeling for each other and began to make out."
Jeff: "Second, Judas, can you see anyone else as a threat?"
Judas: "Well, Katniss is pretty strong, she's shot some birds down with her arrows, Dawn and Hibiki, because they haven't pissed anyone off yet, Bianca, for the same reason, and Roberta, because she has at least one automatic vote on the jury."
Jeff: "Montana, you weren't mentioned as a threat, is that true?"
Montana: "Well, I can she why, because, I don't really do much around camp."
Jeff: "Aleskan, one last thing. Are you going to give up immunity?"
Aleskan shakes his head no.
Jeff: "With that, Judas, 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, Montana. Roberta. Roberta. Next vote, Roberta. She leads 3-1. Roberta. Thirteenth person voted out of Survivor: The Sahara and the fourth member of the jury..........................Roberta. Please bring up your torch."
Roberta grabs her torch and gives it to Jeff.
Jeff: "Roberta, the tribe has spoken."
Roberta walks away from the tribal council area.
Jeff: "You probably think this was an easy vote, but tonight this is far from over, because another person will be going tonight. And on that note, we'll bring Roberta in, who was voted out a few minutes ago."
Roberta walks back in and takes a seat on the bench.
Jeff: "This is how it's going to work. Everyone has a cube with four letters on it. I'll ask a series of questions and person with the wrong answer will be eliminated. First question, what is the river found in the Sahara called? A for Mississippi, B for Nile, C for Yellow, and D for Suez."
Everyone gives their answer.
Jeff: "Everyone but Montana say B. Montana says D. The correct answer is B. Montana, you are no longer eligible for immunity. Second question, the Sahara is bigger than the USA. A for true, B for false."
Everyone gives their answers.
Jeff: "Judas, Aleskan, Katniss, and Bianca say true. Dawn and Hibiki say false. The correct answer is true, so Dawn and Hibiki, you're out. Third question, which one of these ancient civilizations utilized the salt-gold trade in the Sahara. A for China, B for Ghana, C for Rome, and D for Sumerian."
Everyone reveals their answers.
Jeff: "Judas and Aleskan say B. Katniss says D. Bianca says C. The correct answer is B. Bianca and Katniss, you two are ineligible for immunity. Fourth question, Mansa Musa was a blank who made a hajj to Mecca. A for Muslim, B for Christian, C for African, and D for Atheist."
Judas and Aleskan reveal their answers.
Jeff: "Judas says C, Aleskan says A. The correct answer was A, meaning Aleskan wins immunity! Aleskan you now have a one-in-six shot of winning."
Aleskan: "Before we vote, I want to give immunity to Katniss. I feel that I'm going to survive tonight, immunity or not."
Aleskan gives the immunity necklace to Katniss.
Jeff: "Katniss, you now have a on-in-six shot of winning and that means Aleskan is vulnerable. Judas, you start us off with the vote."
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, Aleskan. Aleskan. Montana. Next vote, Aleskan. He leads 3-1. Next vote, Aleskan. Fourteenth person voted out of Survivor: The Sahara and the fifth member of the jury..........................Aleskan. Please bring up your torch."
Aleskan, shocked that he was just voted out, brings his torch up to Jeff.
Jeff: "Aleskan, the tribe has spoken."
Aleskan walks away from the tribal council area.
Jeff: "You blindsided a person who just passed off his immunity, this may benefit you all with Aleskan out. You may head on out."
Qattara gets up and leaves the tribal council area.
