Reward Challenge (Day 22)

Challenge: TLP O-Course

Alright, are you guys ready to get to today's reward challenge? For today's challenge:

The tribe would be randomly split into two teams of six. The teams would run an obstacle course of a hay stack, a rope crawl, a reed blocked pathway, a net crawl, and a brick wall. Along the way of the course would be three stations where a key is suspended in the air on a metal spring. The team would have to work together to reach the key and free it from the spring. The first team to collect all three keys and unlock their team's flag would win.

Want to know what you are playing for? Today the winning team will enjoy a trip to a Survivor Café, where you will enjoy coffee, pastries, and all kinds of candies and snacks, and in a game where food is scarce, you will need every little thing, should make for a fun experience.

We have randomly divided into two teams of six:

On the green team, we have; Carolyn

, Greg, Trish, Cydney, Christian and Natalie.

On the red team, we have; Teresa

, Reynold, Jay, Kellee, Terry and Michelle.

Jaclyn drew the odd color, she will be sitting out of this challenge, but it does not mean she won't be out of the reward, you will have to choose which of those two teams you will back up, and if you choose correctly, you will be joining that team in the reward. So which team will you back up? Jaclyn has chosen to back the green team.

Alright big reward, Survivors Ready?? Go!!

Who will be sent to Ghost Island?

If Red Team wins: https://strawpoll.com/ah2kh2sab

If Green Team wins: https://strawpoll.com/jfpq8jb94

(The Six or Seven people that will win this reward will be getting an additional 8 votes each for every future individual challenges that's held in strawpoll.)

Reward Challenge Results (Day 22)

Red Team wins Reward!!

Alright, Jaclyn you chose the wrong team, which means you will not be enjoying the reward, before you guys head out to your reward, you will have to make a big decision first, who from the other seven will be going to Ghost Island?

You're gonna let them go to rocks? Alright, I want each of you to pick up a rock, black means you stay, white means you go. And reveal.

Natalie, you will now be going to Ghost Island, boat's waiting, you will be back in the next immunity challenge.

Alright, Jay, Teresa, Terry, Kellee, Reynold and Michelle, a Survivor Café will be awaiting you, you can now head out, congrats and enjoy your reward. As for the rest of you, I've got nothing, you can head back to camp, I'll see you in the next challenge.

(Jay, Teresa, Kellee, Reynold, Terry and Michelle will now have an additional 8 votes to every future individual challenges that they are a part of.)

(And yes, the Ghost Island poll was a tie between Natalie and Cydney, I just flipped a coin and it was tails, so Natalie is going. Why I made it a rock draw? Well I'm sure that the last vote really shook up the game and the dynamics that those six would probably not agree on one person, so... rock draw it is, but Natalie would "win" it.)

Ghost Island (Day 22)

Natalie breathed a huge sigh of relief as the Survivor Gods miraculously sent her here in Ghost Island, where she will be able to gain some sort of an advantage that could surely help her out in this game, now that everyone really wants her gone after pulling off several blindsides, her strategic game will be hard to beat in the end.

Natalie arrived at the island and went up toward the row of urns, and followed the instruction inside that lead her toward a table with a chest.

She opens it up and reads "This is Erik's Individual Immunity Necklace from Season 16: Micronesia - Fans vs Favorites, that was infamously given up to you by Erik in an effort to gain some leverage in the game, he was voted out shortly after. You and the Black Widow Brigade are infamous for pulling off wonderful and thrilling blindsides against Jason, Ozzy and Erik, and you all made the final four together where unfortunately, because you were up against certified Survivor Legends, you were taken out in fourth place... Now in your second chance to win this game, maybe this necklace will help, this is now a hidden immunity idol that can possibly save you from being voted out, however this idol has a condition, in order to activate the necklace's power, you must retain the legacy of the Black Widow Brigade and blindside someone with an idol in their pocket, only then will this idol will have full power and you can use it until the final 6."

Natalie, felt a huge load on her back with what she will have to do now, she doesn't even know anyone that has an idol in the game right now, but she stays composed, gets comfy in the shelter and tries to figure out a plan on how could she possibly pull this off.

Pinili Camp (Day 22)

(I did not make a post about the tribe getting back from tribal because... I wanted to sleep... so I'll just attach it here)

Tribal Council was a huge success for the Black Widow Alliance, they were able to get rid of Teresa's extra vote, flush Christian's idol, make Greg waste his legacy advantage and got Hayden out of the game, the women celebrated their accomplishments a little away from the shelter. But the other eight members of the tribe aren't as lively about the result, Greg was scolded about his move, but was forgiven once he explained himself, Trish also explained her vote to the tribe and got a similar response. She, Terry and Carolyn, and they all agreed to work with the 'Ghost Island' Alliance to get rid of the women, whom they now consider as too much of a threat.

Now in the present... the six people who lost the reward challenge went back to camp, where they all promptly went out into the woods to go look for a hidden immunity idol since two of them were played in the night before. Christian decided to borrow something from Nick's play book and use his defunct idol from Ghost Island as a fake idol, wrapped with the cloth and note that came with his first idol and hid it somewhere to try to distract whoever found it from finding the real one. And someone did fall for it, Carolyn and Trish were looking for the idol together, and they stumbled upon it, the two women rejoiced and they decided to let Trish hold on to it since Carolyn already has one. But ultimately, no one has found the real idol yet.

While in the reward, everyone was ought to just enjoy their time there and relax, but Kellee was a little on edge about what she pulled yesterday, and wanted to know if they're cool with her, she got some alone time with Terry who told her to relax and that she's still welcome to work with them if she wants to, but he makes it clear that they will be targeting Natalie's alliance for the next few Tribal Councils. Kellee knew that her mission to weaken the 'Ghost Island' Alliance is now done, so if it will benefit her better, she could now just go with the majority and leave the women to fend for themselves.

Immunity Challenge (Day 23)

Challenge: Pot Head

We'll now bring in Natalie, returning from Ghost Island, alright, are you guys ready to get to today's Immunity Challenge? Firsts things first, Jay, I need to take it back, once again Immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge:

Each contestant will need to balance a bowl on a bean bag on their head. They must fill the bowl with rice and get through a small obstacle course to another bowl, where they fill that bowl with the rice they have carried. If you drop the pot or fall off the obstacle, you've got to start over. The first person to fill that second bowl with rice to completion and raise their flag wins immunity.

Here's the twist to this challenge, it is an Eat or Play; if you feel comfortable and would want to give up your chance to win immunity, you can sit out in this challenge, go over on that table and enjoy this meal: Burgers, Pasta, Bread, Drinks, it should be a delicious meal. But if you are feeling a insecure, you can opt to participate in this challenge for a chance to win immunity and a 1 in 12 shot of winning this game. What is it going to be?

Eat or Play: https://strawpoll.com/rcys631b6

(You can vote for as many players as you want and the results are set to visible. If a player receives 20 or more votes in the poll, then that player would give up on this challenge and will go and Eat the food. And if they do Eat, they will receive an additional 5 votes advantage for every individual challenge from here on out)

Alright, Survivors Ready?? Go!!

Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/krdeqxyup

(Same rules apply as last time, you can vote for many players as you want, but please keep in mind to vote for who you think should realistically win this challenge. Jay, Terry, Teresa, Kellee, Michelle and Reynold will each get a +8 votes advantage for winning the previous reward, everyone else has none)

(And to make this a YouTube poll... I wanted to ask; that if you guys were in Survivor, and an Eat or Play twist happened, what would you choose to do?)

Immunity Challenge Results (Day 23)

Greg, Trish, Carolyn and Reynold all chose to give up their chance for immunity, they will be feasting with all these food, while the rest of you opted to play and have a chance to win immunity, we'll see how this will play out.

(moments later)

Jay's pot is full! Jay wins immunity!!

Jay, back to back, Immunity is yours once again, you are safe from tonight's tribal council, cannot be voted out of this game, and as for the rest of you, somebody will be the twelfth person voted out of Survivor: Second Chance. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, I'll see you all tonight at Tribal Council.

(I have made a slight patch up on the rules earlier, that the 20-votes needed to "Eat" would become 50. And it was the right decision since the lowest amount of vote was Natalie with 34. That would've been enough to make everyone not participate in the challenge...)

(So... Greg, Trish, Carolyn and Reynold will all get a +5 vote advantage for every individual challenge. Bringing Reynold to +13. Teresa, Terry, Kellee, Jay and Michelle to +8. And Greg, Trish and Carolyn to +5. Hopefully these advantages would pay off for them in the future.)

Pinili Camp (Day 23)

Everybody was still on edge about the last vote, and it has left the Higanti Alliance of Trish, Terry and Carolyn joining forces with the remaining 'Ghost Island' Alliance members of Teresa, Christian, Reynold, Jay and Greg. And this majority eight would then pick off the minority alliance of Natalie, Jaclyn, Kellee, Cydney and Michelle, after pulling off that last vote, these women could possibly bamboozle their way into the final 5.

The majority decided to target Cydney for this round, as they fear Natalie has gotten something from Ghost Island, and she might use it on herself, they also feared Kellee might have found the rehidden idol, and that Jaclyn is the 'obvious' secondary target that they might play an idol on instead of themselves... so they settled for Cydney who is a physical and social threat, who nearly won both immunity challenges if it wasn't for Jay.

A little later, Christian told Teresa, Jay and Reynold about his fake idol plan, and that someone already found it, but he doesn't know who, he just found that it wasn't in the spot he put it on, but hopefully that would buy them some time to go look for the real idol. Which nobody still found.

Meanwhile, Natalie gathered her alliance to tell them about her advantage, and that they will have to blindside someone in order to activate it, Kellee knew that Carolyn an idol, and suggested that they would go after her, she's been targeting her since Day 8, so now would be a good time to pull it off. But they lack the numbers to do it, so when Jaclyn tried to get Greg to help out, Greg rejected saying that he doesn't want to get into any more trouble than he is now. So the women went with plan B and Natalie and Cydney went to talk to Jay and Reynold.

The women told them about their plan to blindside Carolyn with an idol in her pocket, Jay's interest was peaked as he forgot that Carolyn had an idol too, the women also argued that Carolyn was getting comfortable as she gave up immunity to go eat in the challenge, so if they wanted to get her out, now is the time to do it, they only needed 2 more votes to pull it off.

Jay and Reynold were certainly put in a pickle, they do want to do it, Carolyn was sliding over all the drama going on at camp, but if they do flip, that would risk the tearing up the majority eight that they just formed, so they went to discuss this move with Christian and Teresa, Christian agreed to do it, and Teresa argued not to. These four spent the rest of the afternoon discerning the pros and cons of this move, right before they all arrive at Tribal Council.

Tribal Council #12 (Day 23)

The last Tribal Council really shook up the game as four advantages were played, and Hayden went home with a single vote, this was a huge victory for the Black Widow alliance of Natalie, Jaclyn, Cydney, Kellee and Michelle, but after realizing that they would become strategic forces, the other eight members of the tribe banded together to take them out. The majority settled for Cydney, for being a physical-social threat, and because they feared Natalie, Jaclyn and Kellee would have something up their sleeves.

While the minority decided to try and blindside Carolyn with an Idol in her pocket, so that Natalie could activate her idol. But they lacked the numbers and knew they would need to pull in other people, and after being rejected by Greg, they settled for Jay and Reynold.

The men were left undecided about the plan, even talking to their allies did not help, and the four of them are now stuck in the middle, not knowing where to swing.

Who do they side with in this vote? and how will it affect their games?

(Like last time, some of these votes will be pre-determined, to save myself some time and effort and to keep things simple.)

Tribal Council #12 (Day 23)

I'll go tally the votes.

If anybody has a Hidden Immunity Idol, and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so.


Alright, once the votes have been read, the decision is final and that person will have to leave the tribal council area immediately, I'll read the votes.

First Vote, Cydney











Carolyn (we're tied, 6 votes Cydney, 6 votes Carolyn, 1 vote left)

The twelfth person voted out of Survivor: Second Chance and the second member of our Jury; Cydney.

That's 7, that is enough, you need to bring me your torch.

Cydney, the Tribe has spoken, time for you to go.

This game is always going to blindside you in the most unexpected of ways. So always expect the unexpected. You can head back to camp, good night.
