Immunity Challenge (Day 16)
Dope a Rope

Covu, Vura and Cagi, taking your first looks at the new Vaka tribe, Aubry voted out at the last Tribal Council. Alright, shall we get to today's immunity challenge? Firsts things first I gotta take it back, Immunity is back up for grabs... but not this kind of immunity, instead you'll be playing for this kind of immunity; individual immunity. Because tonight... all 18 of you will be going to tribal council, 4 of you (one from each tribe) will win immunity, and 2 of you will be going home in tonight's Double Joint Tribal Council.

Here's how it will work; For your challenge, all eighteen of you will start at my go, you all are connected to a long rope that is threaded through two sets of obstacle course, a horizonal obstacle course, and then a vertical pole, you need to climb over and crawl under those obstacles, and race to a finish mat, first person from each tribe wins individual immunity.

In addition, you are also playing for reward, the first two people to finish (along with their tribes), will be attending tribal together, where you will vote someone out, afterwards those two tribes will be staying at Tribal to enjoy a feast full of theater food; popcorn, hotdogs, soda, candy, all while you watch the last two tribes have their tribal council. Not only are you getting some food on your belly, but you're also getting some valuable information from the other tribes. Worth playing for? Alright, so many stakes, we'll get it on.

Survivors Ready?? Go!!

Vaka: https://strawpoll.com/zg9dcoe2s

Vura: https://strawpoll.com/j3zzjr81k

(this challenge functions as an individual challenge, the tribal advantages/disadvantages don't count nor will count in future challenges, everyone is on equal ground. The "finish" will be quantified by how many votes a player received. You will also be able to vote for multiple people, please vote on which person do you think should realistically win this challenge and because this is a kind of a big twist in the game... you guys get an extra hour to have these polls, but it will still end at 12:00 mn EST, good luck!!)

Immunity Challenge Results (Day 16)

Everyone is out to a fast start, you must go under and over this obstacle, be careful you might get tangled up. Andrea, Chrissy, Malcolm, Abi, Devon, Lauren having no trouble. Mike, Marty and Rodney suddenly slowing down, Jason, Wentworth, Denise making progress on this course, Malcolm is through, Lauren is through, Chrissy is through, move on to the vertical pole. Janet taking a slow but steady approach in this, while Fabio is whipping through it, Devon now on the pole, Natalie, Andrea, Abi and Fabio also on the pole. Malcolm is in the lead, Lauren right behind, both are through at the same time, who will make it to the finish mat first?? And Malcolm wins Immunity and Reward!! Lauren comes in second and wins immunity and reward as well. Everyone from Cagi and Vura can now drop out from this challenge, is it now down to Vaka and Covu. Andrea and Fabio are in the lead and neck in neck for Covu. While Natalie is the only one close to the finish for Vaka, Mike, Victoria and Jason still on the Horizontal obstacle, and it is for naught as Natalie makes it through!! and wins Immunity!! We're looking for one more, Andrea vs Fabio who will get here first... and Andrea does it!! Andrea wins immunity!!

Alright... for the time in Survivor history, four people with individual immunity... Malcolm, Lauren, Natalie and Andrea come on over, here you go, here you go, here you go and here you go, all four of you have earned it, congrats none of you will be going home tonight. Alright, Cagi and Vura since Malcolm and Lauren finished first and second, you guys will be attending the first tribal council together, and then afterwards you will be feasting with food as you listen in to the second tribal council with Vaka and Covu. Understood? Alright, two of you guys will be voted out tonight, I'll you all have the afternoon to figure out who it's going to be. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, I'll see you all at tribal.

(Okay so, for those who are somewhat confused on what is happening... there will be two tribal councils this week, Cagi and Vura will be attending the first Tribal Council on Thursday, and then Vaka and Covu will be attending the second Tribal Council on Friday. If you have any other questions, let us know in the comments so we could clarify it.)

Cagi, Covu, Vaka and Vura Camps (Day 16)

After a surprise Double Joint Tribal Council twist, sending all four tribes to tribal council, and putting everyone's game on the hot seat, the castaways must now scramble to figure how to navigate this new twist.

At Vura, Janet, Devon and Denise were a little panicked, as not only are they the minority in this joint tribal, but now they also don't have a last resort-safe vote to work around with as Lauren won individual immunity, now they really need to work on flipping one of the Cagi people to vote with them, and they focused their eyes on their old Hero tribemates, Malcolm and Wentworth, thinking that they are on the bottom of that tribe and they should vote with them as 6 Hero Strong to take out one of the three villains, specifically either Abi or Chrissy, taking in mind what Brad said before about the dynamics of their old tribe.

At Cagi, Malcolm was glad to have won immunity because the last time he was in a joint tribal council, it did not work out great for him, so he's now glad that he's at least safe tonight. The whole tribe figured that they should stick together while they have the numbers, and after Malcolm pleaded to spare Denise, they now decided to vote out either Devon or Janet. Wentworth agrees, but Malcolm does not, and so he goes to have a conversation with Chrissy if she wants to go after Wentworth tonight and they can get some more votes from Vura to secure the plan. But Wentworth, Rodney and Abi are also planning something, as they now see Malcolm as a huge threat and they now want to turn on him, by taking out his close ally Denise, despite his pleading earlier.

At Vaka, the tribe knew that they really have to stick together, and try to flip Sophie to their side through her alliance with Victoria, but they all knew that they cannot trust one another... Natalie and Jason knew that Mike could easily flip on them and join his pals from the old Heroes, and then Victoria proved yesterday that she's very untrustworthy ally and now even more dangerous after being reunited with Sophie. And both Victoria and Mike don't trust Natalie or Jason either and consider voting with the Covus to save themselves.

At Covu, the whole tribe was already planning to stick together to the merge, and it was kind of a blessing for them that they could practice their "unity" in a joint tribal council, And so after a small debate on who to take out from Vaka, they landed on Jason, as Natalie was immune, Fabio pleaded to save Mike and Sophie pleaded to save Victoria, and so Jason it is. But Covu is not so united after all... as both Sophie and Andrea realize that they're somewhat on the bottom of the tribe, as Fabio and Marty are too close and Keith is in the middle, but leaning the men... so they thought they should do something about it, and with Aubry now gone, Andrea needed a new closest ally to work with for the rest of the game. They figured that Fabio and Marty are too dangerous now, that they are very close and have an idol... so they look toward getting one of them out by flipping to the Vakas.

(sorry this came a little late, I got a little busy, but the first Tribal Council (Cagi+Vura) will be later today at 6:00 pm EST, and the second (Covu+Vaka) is in the next day at the same time. We wish all the luck for all these players.)

Tribal Council #7 (Day 16)

A surprise Double Joint Tribal Council put everyone on their toes, as all four tribes in two groups had to attend tribal council tonight, a fierce battle for individual immunity brought Malcolm and Lauren out of their precarious positions in their tribes, and they also won a distinct advantage of going to Tribal first and having a feast while watching the other two tribes have their tribal council.

Vura's plan B to offer Lauren as a sacrificial last-resort was taken out by her immunity win, now they really had to focus and hope on their Plan A to work, which is to convince the former Heroes, Malcolm and Wentworth to vote with them and take out a villain. Cagi's plan was to simply use their numbers advantage to take out someone from Vura, but Malcolm and Chrissy saw this as an opportunity to make their move and blindside Wentworth while they can get the numbers. But Wentworth and Abi also have a plan of their own to weaken Malcolm by taking out his closest ally Denise.

Two Tribes, One Tribal Council, things are about to get lively as everyone scrambles to get their plans in motion. But which plan will be the one to actually work? We'll find out.

Tribal Council #7 Results (Day 16)

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.

Denise: Jeff can you please give me a minute? Okay... I'm playing this for myself Jeff.

This is a Hidden Immunity Idol, any votes cast against Denise, 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; Denise (does not count)

Denise (does not count)

Denise (does not count)

Denise (does not count)


Abi (that's 1 vote Abi, 1 vote Wentworth)

Abi (that's 2 votes Abi, 1 vote Wentworth)

Wentworth (we're tied, 2 votes Wentworth, 2 votes Abi, 1 vote left)

The seventh person voted out of Survivor: Heroes vs Villains; Wentworth.

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

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

Well, after seven tribal councils a real idol finally showed up and it proved it's power. You may now move over to the jury bench, your feast is over there, enjoy the show. We'll now bring in the next group...

Tribal Council #8 (Day 16)

Having to go through a Double Joint Tribal Council, the Vaka tribe was not prepared for it, despite some attempts to stay strong as a unit, their dysfunction and paranoia against each other would likely cause some duplicity in the upcoming vote. Meanwhile Covu was as strong and united as always, and set their target to be Jason. But things may not be as simple as it may be, as Sophie and Andrea began scheming against the others.

Can Vaka finally band together in this vote? or will Covu prove to be to strong to break? Or will we blindsided by the results?

Oh, and before we vote, Cagi and Vura, normally this would be when your Reward is over, and you would have to head back to your camps. But tonight it's different, you can stay right there, watch the vote, finish up those food you have.

As for the rest of you, Covu and Vaka, it is time to vote:

The strawpolls do work, that's not the problem, but the results may be delayed from it's usual time slot. But as always, you may check the individual polls for their results after the deadline to see it for yourself. Thanks for understanding.)

Tribal Council #8 Results (Day 16)

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, Jason.



Marty (we're tied, 2 votes Marty, 2 votes Jason)

Jason (that's 3 votes Jason, 2 votes Marty)

Jason (that's 4 votes Jason, 2 votes Marty)

The eighth person voted out of Survivor: Heroes vs Villains; Jason.

That's 5, that is enough, you need to bring me your torch.

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

Well... today we experienced a huge twist in the game, in the form of a double joint tribal council, and it got two great players to get their torches snuffed. It speaks to the unpredictability of this game, and tonight, it just keeps on coming... Covu, Vaka, Vura, Cagi, everybody... drop your buffs.

Mutiny!! (Day 16)

And tonight, it just keeps on coming... Covu, Vaka, Vura, Cagi, everybody... drop your buffs.

Tonight, we are doing something different, each of you will have the opportunity to Mutiny, leave your tribe and join another. But we're going to do it... blindly.

Here's how it will work, one by one you will all go in the voting booth and make a huge decision, you will write down which of the four tribes you want to be on, if you think that you are already good with your current tribe, you don't need to leave, then write the name of your current tribe. However if you feel like you're in trouble or on the outs, and want to do something about it, you may go ahead and join one of the other three tribes of your choice, all you have to do is write down which tribe will it be.

Of course, the questions are... are your allies still going to be on that tribe as they could mutiny somewhere else, are you actually welcome there and can fit inside the dynamics, or are you just better off on the tribe you are already on?

Once everyone has made their decision, I will tally the results, and then announce the new tribes.

I will not give you much time to think about it; Abi, you're up.

(Okay... so, we really wanted to experiment what would happen if we gave the audience the power to decide a tribe swap, so that is essentially what is happening... you guys now have the power to decide how this "swap" will turn out, in the context of a Mutiny. We are expecting chaos, to say the least, we could be looking at very uneven numbers, or dysfunctional dynamics, etc. These polls will end at 12:00 mn as per usual, but the results will be posted a few hours later to give time to update our spreadsheets and things, but you can always check the results yourself in the individual strawpolls after the deadline. Good luck!!)

(Note: if a tribe becomes a tribe of one, that tribe will be dissolved and that one member will automatically be joining their second choice tribe. A tribe of two people, is fine though.)

Mutiny Results (Day 16)

Alright, I'll go tally your choices...

Here I have a tray of wrapped up Buffs, take the one with your name on it and once everyone has theirs, we'll reveal the new tribes.

And... Reveal.

Alright, it seems like everyone is sticking with their old tribes... except, Lauren and Natalie who have Mutinied to go join Cagi, go greet your new tribemates. Covu is still complete, but Vaka and Vura, you both just lost a tribe member each, how does that feel?

Alright, a lot has happened tonight, so you can now all head back to camp, your personal items will be waiting for you over there. Grab your torches, head back to camp, it's a brand new game, good night.
