Episode 14

Pinili Camp (Day 29)

The tribe got back to camp after voting Carolyn out, everyone felt uncomfortable and stayed quiet, until Kellee spoke up saying that she just wanted to make a move on Jaclyn for being a threat to her game and that she was sorry, Natalie and Jaclyn knew that they don't really want to have a fight right now so they just humored her apology and said that they'll talk about it tomorrow, as the two of them sneak off to the woods.

Natalie and Jaclyn argued whether or not to vote out Kellee next, Jaclyn argued that she's no longer with them and will vote them out soon, they were lucky that they got Michelle, Jay and Greg to vote Carolyn and cause a tie, if not they would've lost. While Natalie argued that they should stay together for at least one more round and take out Christian or Reynold first before they start cannibalizing each other. Jaclyn concedes, but she knows in her mind, if she ever gets the offer to take Kellee out, she will take it.

Meanwhile, Kellee laid at the beach, thinking about what she had just done. Jay goes out and tries to comfort her, he confirms that Greg also distrusts her now, so they would have to disband their four-person alliance. But Jay still agrees to help her out, knowing that he's on the bottom as well and they should go stick together if they want to not get picked off by the others.

Teresa, Reynold and Christian know that they have successfully put a crack in women's alliance, but they would still need to do some work if they want to make to sure that they actually vote each other out, Teresa talks to Michelle about making a move, since she thinks that the jury thinks that she is the weakest link between the four women, and she wont have their respect to win the game in the end, although Michelle does think that she's done quite enough and realizes that Teresa is just trying to get her to turn on her alliance and she begins to think on how to get Teresa out as her big move.

While Christian would join Jay and Kellee at the beach to talk to them and try to form a "big threats" alliance, and hopefully make it to the final three. And Reynold would create a bond with Greg to try and pull him back to their side.

Hours later, the tribe wakes up, and Natalie goes out to try and look for an idol, Reynold follows so he can talk some strategy with her ("Fans" alliance) and tries figure out what her game plan is, with Kellee flipping on their alliance. Natalie never really fell for this "alliance" but she continues to humor him so that she could at least distract him with lies and deceptions, but when trying to put her jacket back in her bag, she finds a rolled up piece of note and unknowingly opens it up with Reynold beside her, it says "Congratulations, you have completed your task, your Idol now has power in the game." Natalie and Reynold were both shocked and realizes that Carolyn may have just gone home with an idol, but now the two of them are now faced with the question; do they actually make this alliance official?

(I'll leave it with this cliffhanger, there will be a reward challenge tomorrow, but there won't be a Ghost Island Visit because it will be the loved one's visit... and don't expect me to write a beautiful, emotional storyline with each of their loved ones, I don't know how to make those... it'll just be a challenge... but the challenge advantage... will be big. And then we'll have an Immunity Challenge and Tribal Council #16 on the next day.)

Reward Challenge (Day 30)

It is has been 30 days since the game has started, you still have 9 days left, you might say that you are already running on empty to continue playing this game, so I think today is a great time to replenish your heart with some love, come on in!

Greg here's your sister Julie, Teresa here's your husband Brian, Michelle here's your mom, Reynold your wife Olivia, Kellee here's your sister, Natalie your mom Rockie, Christian your girlfriend Emily, Jay here's your sister Melanie, and of course Jaclyn, here's your husband Jon.

Alright, shall we get down to it? You guys are playing for a Survivor Picnic back at your camp, with your loved ones. For today's challenge:

The castaways would use a bucket to scoop water from the ocean and then toss the water to their loved one, who would use another bucket to catch the water. The loved one would then pour the water into a bucket hanging from a see saw. The first pair to fill their bucket with enough water to tip their see saw and raise their flag will win reward.

Survivors Ready?? Go!!

(Same rules apply as an immunity challenge; 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. The challenge advantages will be listed in each poll. The winner will then pick four other people to join them in the reward, however you guys won't decide that, but these five people will gain a +15 advantage for every upcoming individual challenges.)

(As for the technicalities of who was each other's loved ones, I put copy-pasted whoever visited them in their first season, but that left Kellee, Reynold and Michelle out because they didn't reach their loved ones visit, so I just conducted a small research in the Survivor Wiki and found Reynold's wife, but the best I could find for Kellee and Michelle were their bios for Fiji and IotI, where they mentioned that their hero/inspiration were their mom and sister respectively, and they didn't even mention their names... so... I left them blank. But yeah these visits may be a little inaccurate in some ways, let's just ignore them, and enjoy the show.)

Reward Challenge Results (Day 30)

Their bucket is full, Jaclyn wins reward!!

Jaclyn come on over, you just won love from home. So, you and Jon will be going back to camp to enjoy a small Survivor Picnic, but it wont be fun if it's just the two of you, pick three people and their loved ones to join you in this reward...

I'm picking Natalie, Greg and Michelle.

Alright, Natalie, Greg, Michelle, come on over bring your loved ones, and you know what. Jaclyn, you can pick one more person to join you.

Gosh, I don't know... Reynold.

Alright, Reynold, you and Olivia are joining this group. And that will be it. You guys will be enjoying a Picnic back at camp. As for the rest of you, you can say goodbye to your loved ones. You can all head back to camp, enjoy the afternoon.

(These five people will now have an additional 15 votes as an advantage in all future individual challenges. It will be interesting to see how this would play out.)

Pinili Camp (Day 30)

Everyone got back to camp, congratulated Jaclyn, and she, Greg, Natalie, Reynold and Michelle and their loved ones, went off to go have their picnic.

The ten of them started eating, talking and bonding with each other, a little later Jaclyn and Natalie sneaked off and reassured each other that they will need to keep Reynold's mouth shut about Natalie's idol even if that means they'll have to work with him for a few votes. They get back to the picnic table, and began to talk strategy with the rest of the group, Natalie initiates a final five deal with them and that they pick off the other four starting with Jay or Kellee. Greg and Michelle agree, but is worried about either of them having an Idol and offers up Teresa as a tertiary target.

Of course, Reynold knew that these four were just pulling his leg, and he humors their conversations, he knows that he currently has the most power in the game right now, with an idol that no one knows about, a stable alliance of three, and having all of these information thrown at him, even if 80% of them are lies... he knows that he needs to get back to Christian and Teresa as soon as possible to tell them about everything and plan a counterattack, but these girls wont let him out of their sights and he is genuinely worried for his sanity.

Meanwhile at the shelter, Kellee was infuriated with Jaclyn for not picking her as well. And it confirms her about her true placement in their alliance, so she turns to her "big threats" alliance with Christian and Jay, and lock it in with Teresa and later Reynold, that they are the final five, and they will vote together to vote off the other four one by one, they all agreed.

Hours later, the sun begins to set and the castaways have to say good bye to their loved ones, bringing an end to the loved one's visit, and starting up the next chapter of this game.

Immunity Challenge (Day 31)

Challenge: Drop a Log

Alright, are you guys ready to get to today's Immunity Challenge? Firsts things first, Christian, I need to take it back, once again Immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge:

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. Every five 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 will win immunity.

Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/8auzezbzp

(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. The challenge advantages will be listed in each poll.)

(Some people raised concerns about certain players getting too high of an advantage in challenges from winning a lot of rewards, so today's poll will decide whether or not we will add a limit of 25 to those advantages, which means each player can only have up to +25 votes, bringing Michelle, Greg and Reynold to 25, and the rest remain where they are.)

(I also thought that when it comes down to the final 6 which would be the "finale", that all the challenge advantages would be discarded and everyone would be playing in challenges equally. I would also like to ask if you agree with that condition as well)

Immunity Challenge Results (Day 31)

After an whole hour, two people are left fighting for immunity, Jay and Reynold barely hanging on on their last knot, you will have to dig deep if you want to win this challenge... and all of a sudden Jay drops!! Reynold wins Immunity!!

Reynold, come on over, immunity is yours. As for the rest of you, Tribal Council tonight where after 31 days, somebody will be the sixteenth person voted out and the sixth member of our Jury, one thing is for certain, it will not be you. You all have the afternoon to figure out who it's going to be. Good Luck, I'll see you at Tribal Council.

(As decided, the challenge advantages will now have a limit of 25, and once we get to the Final 6 all of the advantages will be discarded, and the castaways will be competing equally from there on out.)

Pinili Camp (Day 31)

With Reynold wearing the immunity necklace, Natalie, Michelle and Jaclyn breathed a sigh of relief as they can now properly vote out Christian, but knowing that there might be an idol out there, they knew they needed six people to successfully split their votes and play it safe. So they went to see if Greg, Jay and Kellee (as part of the BWA) are able to help them take Christian out by splitting their votes between him and Teresa, with them voting for Christian, but the women would actually be voting for Kellee as their secondary Target.

Jay and Kellee knew that they were just pull their legs, and moved on to strategize on their own, this time with Christian, Reynold and Teresa. Reynold was now able to tell them about Natalie's idol, but the five of them lacked one more vote to be able to split their votes to counter it. So they would then try to lure in Michelle (through bigmove-itis) and have enough votes to split between Natalie and Jaclyn in case their idol is played.

Teresa went to talk to Michelle about it, but Michelle knew that is was a stupid for her to do, and humors her efforts to recruit her. But now Michelle is a little annoyed of Teresa and her constant nagging about making a big move... so knowing that Natalie is going to play her idol, and knowing that either Jay, Reynold or Christian found another idol, and that both idols may be played tonight and negate all the votes, she may need to throw a throwaway vote to snipe Teresa out of this game.

Worried about Natalie's idol and the uncertainty of their numbers, Kellee comes up with a backup plan... Reynold was busy pretending to be part of the BWA, so that they could throw off that they actually knew about Natalie's idol. So she gathers Teresa, Christian and Jay to possibly vote together and blindside Greg with 4 votes, which they would not see coming and possibly not play an idol on, but they would need to be quite daring as they are truly unsure if they are actually splitting their votes.

Meanwhile, Reynold was infiltrating his enemy alliance and gathered intel that they're targeting either Christian, Kellee or Teresa tonight, and he could possibly change the tide of game by playing his idol correctly... but he is not sure if it is the right time to do so. While he is safe for tonight, he may need it in the future. He thinks about the move as the tribe arrives at Tribal Council.

Tribal Council (Day 31)

After flipping on her alliance at the last Tribal Council, Kellee found herself in bottom of the tribe, but luckily Jay, Teresa and Christian lent her a helping hand and she found home in their new alliance. While Reynold found himself in tricky situation after accidentally finding out that Natalie had an idol, the women then went all out to make sure that he doesn't spill the beans. The women then tried to get Kellee and Jay back to their side to they try to vote out Christian with a split, however, they don't know that Kellee was actually their secondary target.

But after winning Immunity, Reynold eventually was able to warn his alliance about Natalie's idol. So they planned to get Michelle to jump ship and help them split their votes 3-3 between Natalie and Jaclyn. Michelle figured out that two idols could be played tonight, and she could blindside Teresa with a stray vote.

However, Kellee was worried about what would happen in the vote, so she comes up with a risky back up plan to blindside Greg, while they don't see it coming. But it would require the enemy to split their votes, but they aren't even sure if they do.

Will Natalie or Reynold play their idols? Would people actually split their votes? and who will be voted out tonight?

Tribal Council #16 Results (Day 31)

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.

Natalie: Jeff, I'm afraid there have been rumors that I have an Idol... so I'm just gonna set things straight and say; I'm playing this for myself.

This is a Hidden Immunity Idol, any votes cast against Natalie will not count.

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, Jaclyn.




Christian (we're tied, 2 votes Christian, 2 votes Jaclyn, 1 vote Kellee)



Greg (we're tied, 2 votes for Christian, Jaclyn and Greg, 1 vote for Teresa and Kellee, 1 vote left)

The sixteenth person voted out of Survivor: Second Chance and the sixth member of our jury; Greg

That's 3, tonight that is enough, you need to bring me your Torch.

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

Well, five different people got votes tonight, that is reassuring that there is no where left to hide in this tribe, any one of you could be next. You can head back to camp, good night.
