Episode 13

Post-Tribal Veitavalu Camp (Day 27)

Everyone returned to camp very happy and very confused at the same time, as finally both idols are now gone, and hopefully there won't be any in play anytime soon, but everyone is more worried about what their position in the game actually is right now.

Fabio and Marty were now in a very vulnerable position, now that their idols are gone, they had to make sure that their reestablished majority alliance with Devon, Lauren, Janet, Sophie and Victoria, can carry them to the end. But with that big of an alliance, it may prove more difficult, so they consider setting themselves up as free agents.

Devon and Janet both reassured Malcolm that he's still in their group with Victoria, they just needed to make sure that Fabio, Lauren, and the others trust them enough to bring them closer to the majority, get intel to make better moves that can get them to the final four. Malcolm is now hesitant toward Devon for all the things he's done, first voting out Denise, then keeping an idol a secret from him, and now he's making deals with all kinds of people... can he still trust him?

Andrea too was blindsided during tribal council, and felt even more paranoid when Sophie told her that it was either her or Natalie tonight. Sophie tried to comfort her as she was able to get the target off her, which did not make Andrea any more comfortable, now that history is repeating itself, it's now the mid merge and she's now target number one for most people, for no real reason.

Abi most of all, was hurt, as she experienced two gut wrenching tribal councils back to back as she lost Keith and Natalie, and now she doesn't know who she can trust at this point. She's been holding back her rage all this time ever since Chrissy flipped, and now that she's got nothing to lose she's about ready to blow.

Meanwhile, Rodney became furious with Lauren about their alliance, now that she's talking and making alliances with other people, Rodney expected to work with Lauren throughout the merge and now he feels like he's been working alone this whole time. But he does see a silver lining, he knows that the "majority seven" is not really a strong unit and will break soon enough... but he does see three other people, who also felt just as hurt as him, and maybe that will unite them into a strong four, that can take other to the end, all they need to do is wait for the majority to crack open and they can turn this game on it's head.

(we are on Week 11 of our 16 Week adventure, but we still have a long way to go... so this week will have two eliminations, on two separate days, and we shall head straight to the next immunity challenge in a few hours, and the tribal council directly after it in the next day. Then we'll have the second elimination cycle at the latter half of the week. Thanks for tuning in, and we'll see you in the challenge!!)

DS-HV: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 27)

Alright, we have Sophie, Rodney and Janet, opting out of this challenge, no shot at immunity, so they can eat some cheeseburgers, take your seats, while we have Malcolm, Devon, Abi, Marty, Lauren, Victoria, Fabio and Andrea participating in this challenge. This challenge is on!! You may now dig in.

This challenge is all about concentration, you will have to endure the pain of being squatted in that position and having to find any kind of comfort, because you cannot go too high, or too low, you must stay in the middle. Marty drops, he is first out, we are down to seven now. You can now see just how difficult this challenge is... there is absolutely a very small wiggle room, not much room for error, and if it does you are out.

It has been 10 minutes, and people are looking tired already, eying the burgers that Rodney, Sophie and Janet are enjoying right now... Abi drops her pot, Victoria also drops it, they are both now, and just like that we are down to five... Malcolm, Andrea, Fabio, Devon and Lauren. One of you is going to win immunity, all you have to do is win, Devon drops he is out, and we are now down to four.

20 minutes, you four have been there for 20 minutes, well done, but how long can you keep it up? Andrea couldn't, she is now out and Lauren is shaking a lot, struggling to hold that position, can she save it? No she can't, she is now out of this challenge. And we are down to two, Malcolm and Fabio, two strong dudes, who can stay there longer? It is now a showdown, it will just be a matter of time before the other gives out, you will have to dig deep if you want to stay in this game... and Malcolm out of no where, just drops and Fabio wins Immunity!!

Fabio come on over, you also just won individual immunity, you are safe in tonight's tribal council, cannot be voted out of this game, congrats. As for the rest of you, tribal council tonight, where somebody will be the fourteenth person voted out and the fourth member of our jury. Big stakes, grab your stuff head back to camp, I'll see you all at tribal.

DS-HV: Veitavalu Camp (Day 27)

(no time to waste, let's just get on with it)

Fabio was extremely happy that we won immunity, as getting rid of both idols last night, really put him and Marty in a tough position, and winning the challenge secured him safety for tonight's tribal, and so all he needs to do figure out how Marty could survive as well. They started by gathering their "new" alliance with Devon, Lauren, Janet, Victoria and Sophie, now including Malcolm and Andrea, to just pile and/or split their votes on the two remaining old Cagis; Abi and Rodney, who aren't really close with anyone at this point in the game, aren't helping much at camp, and are kind of just dead people walking.

But certain players see their weak points as a strong point as well. The majority seven; Devon, Janet, Fabio, Marty, Lauren, Sophie and Victoria all considered keeping them around longer for a few more rounds in order for them ensue chaos, allowing them to slip through a few more rounds, maybe keeping them all the way to the end as a possible goat. And so they set their eyes on a bigger threat like Andrea or Malcolm, while they are still in a vulnerable position in this game, after some convincing from Janet and with Malcolm still being more on the bottom right now, they decided to strike Andrea first as she is much more of a well-rounded threat and has way more connections to work with going forward than Malcolm could.

However, Sophie knows very well that she cannot let Andrea go home now, especially after she felt bitter at for not letting her know she flipped last night. So she needed to figure out whether to save her or not.

Meanwhile Rodney knew that he and Abi were beyond screwed, and decided to pull through with his idea, he went to talk to Andrea and Malcolm about their position in the tribe and their sour relationships with their "Allies", and they should take revenge and form an outsiders alliance. Rodney then later talked to Marty and decided to recruit him as well, saying that Fabio is being given all the credit for their moves, and he needs to separate himself from Fabio by making a move without him and this is the move he should make.

The outsiders now discussed who to vote out, they decided to break the core trio of that majority, the previous reward winners of Fabio, Lauren and Devon. With Fabio immune, they settled for either Lauren or Devon, both for their physical, social and strategic threat levels, despite some hesitancy for Malcolm and Rodney, they eventually agreed to go with the plan. However, the outsiders only has five votes to cast, they needed a sixth...

Sophie was still debating within herself, whether or not to turn on Andrea or commit to their alliance. As she was thinking about it, Andrea walks up to her and tells her about the outsiders' plans and they needed her to pull it off. Now Sophie has now become the swing vote and she is unsure of what to do, but whatever she decides on, it needs to be the best for her game moving forward.

(Indeed, there is no time to waste, Tribal Council is in a few hours.)

DS-HV: Tribal Council #14 (Day 27)

The previous last tribal council brought new alliances into the mix as the reward winning team of Fabio, Lauren and Devon formed a majority alliance with their closest allies; Janet, Marty, Sophie and Victoria, and together they knocked Natalie into the jury. This move created tension between old alliances and created sour relationships, causing Rodney, Malcolm and Andrea to feel betrayed by their allies.

After Fabio won immunity, saving himself from possible elimination this night, he went on to lock in a majority nine with his allies and now Andrea and Malcolm, to pick off the remaining Cagis; Abi-Maria and Rodney. However not everyone agrees to vote them out just yet, as they had ulterior motives to bring them farther into the game and instead voting out a bigger threat tonight, they settled for Andrea, for her better social relationships than most people.

However, Rodney went to make a counter alliance of his own with Abi, Andrea and Malcolm, capitalizing on their unstable relationships with their alliances, together with Marty, they decide to target Devon or Lauren for being the core members of that majority alliance. But they would still need a sixth vote for their plan to succeed.

Sophie, was debating whether to save her closest ally Andrea, or not. Until she was recruited into the outsiders' plan. Putting her in even more vital position as the swing vote.

Can the majority stay together? or will the outsiders prevail? Which way is this game going after this vote? We'll find out.
