Third Chance Story

DS-TC: Marooning? (Day 1)


It is another day at the beautiful islands of Fiji as three boats sail through the waters and arrive at each of their destinations. Each boat has eight former Survivors who have played twice before, and lost both times, and they are here returning for their third chance to see if they still have what it takes to survive in the jungle, survive the vote, survive each other and win this game once and for all. 39 Days, 24 people, 1 Survivor.


The boats arrive at their respective beaches, which the eight passengers get off, celebrating, and they were utterly confused as they could not find Jeff Probst anywhere, but after walking for while find their tribe flag. Which contains their buffs, a Pot, a Machete and a rolled up note which read:


"Welcome to Survivor: Third Chance! This game is full of surprises, and this is only the first of many. There is no marooning, no opening challenge, no way of winning flint this early on, and there in also no supply of Rice for you. All you have is a pot and a machete, and all of the other essentials that you will need, you will have to earn some other time. You all have been here before, you know what to do, now get to work you still have a lot to go."


The tribes were surprised about this revelation, as they really just left them with nothing. They don't even know who else are on the other tribes. So they all feel mixed emotions as they are excited to be back here, but also scared of what's to come.


The Loto Tribe, went off to a good start, as they all went out to gather what they need to build their shelter, sharing their limited supplies to get the work done as efficiently as possible. Soon enough, people started breaking off from the shelter grounds, leaving only Kass and Lex to work on the shelter. Both of them realize that they are in a pickle in this tribe, as they fully know that Tai and Caleb is a strong pair, and that Eliza and Corinne are another strong pair. And that they themselves don't have much of a connection with anybody, and they should pair up too. Lex was at first reluctant to play with such a chaotic player, but he has made worse deals before and it has been a long time since he has played and so he will need someone to help him adapt to the new school gameplay. Caleb and Tai walk of to gather more supplies, the two them were happy that they are in the same tribe together once again, and they agreed to work together, being concerned of all the very strategic players that they are stuck with. Corinne walks with Eliza to talk about how they feel about this tribe, and how they can work through it. Corinne brings up the idea of double pairing up with Tai and Caleb, that way they have solid four and they would only need one more to get a majority, Eliza agrees, and begins talks with them. Brenda realizes the pairings that are happening, and went to ensure that she becomes the swing vote to each pair, she quickly bonds with Caleb while gathering wood, talks a bit to Corinne about their time back at Caramoan and helps out Kass and Lex at building their shelter. While Fishbach is feeling a bit like a "Fishbach out of water" once again, due to not really being able to connect with anyone.


The Tino Tribe, went off to an amazing start, with their hard work ethic they were able to hit the ground running despite their lack of supplies. After losing Season 31, Tasha really reflected that she should be playing more aggressively, and be more upfront with her strategy, and so she orchestrates a Cambodia alliance with Keith, Woo and Terry, saying that they should stick together as physical threats, and pick off the "weaker" ones, notably Monica and Rob. But all three men did not really agree with her sentiment, believing it was still too early to be forming alliances, alongside finding her as an untrustworthy ally, most notably Keith who still feels mistrust towards her strategy in Cambodia. Rob notices all the talking that is going on and believes that the game is now on, he wants to put all he can into his game, and so creates a counter alliance with Laura, Danielle and Monica, saying that the other four are already teaming up, and they should save themselves too. Monica agrees and joins up with him, but the other two are not as pleased, as Laura knows that she cannot trust Monica, while Danielle believes that Rob is too smart for his own good. Later on, Woo and Terry talk and both feel good with each other, just like last time, they agree to work together again. Danielle later shows up and reunites with Terry saying that it feels good to have him back. After they tell each other about their encounters with Tasha and Rob wanting to form alliances. The three of them collectively agree that the two of them are playing the game way too hard, way too fast and they should go vote them as soon as possible.


The Ulu Tribe, were not as successful. As both Russell and Brad wanted to take on the leadership role, after a bit of deliberation, Russell backed out, and let Brad lead. However Russell soon started micromanaging everyone while they built their shelter, irritating Brad, but lets himself be the bigger man. Knowing from experience that he should choose his words carefully and lets Russell know that he wants to lead the tribe, he can, but Russell denies it and tells Brad that he should do it, but then starts micromanaging everyone again, Much to everyone's annoyance, particularly Courtney and Abi who decide to just storm off to the beach. Spencer reminisces about being in a green disaster tribe for the third time. Michaela remains calm, despite being very irritated at the both of them. Erik is just dumbfounded at what is happening, and Shii Ann wishes that she had popcorn, because all of this chaos plays in well in her strategy to remain under the radar.


It's only the first post, and its already a lot to unpack... but this is only Part one of Day 1 of this season. Part 2 is coming tomorrow. Stay Tuned!!

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 1)


Fishbach definitely feels outcasted from his tribe, considering that he is among several of the biggest characters and players in the show, and here he is, not fitting in again socially. He wants to redeem himself after being blinded by his ambition to take out the Golden Boy, and he wants to ensure that he won't make the same mistake again. Kass and Lex talk a bit about strategy and they set their targets toward Tai for being good at finding idols, or Brenda for being a social threat who can fly under the radar and still being able to make moves. Kass suggests the idea of forming a "villains" alliance with Lex, Corinne and Eliza, of which they are open to the idea on. Corinne feels like that she and Eliza are holding a lot of power right now. Being connected with Caleb, Tai, Brenda and now Kass and Lex, and she is worried that this power will get in her head and they need to be careful.


Monica set out to redeem herself after her close call in BvW, by trying be more calm and collected in her emotions that it won't affect her social and strategic game. While gathering materials, she takes Laura to talk, as she wants to make amends with her for their time together in their previous season. Laura still feels mistrust towards her, and so agrees to disagree to bury the hatchet, just so that they won't cause drama within the mostly harmonious camp. Monica then talks to Rob about strategy and they agree to take out Tasha first, Rob then goes to see if Danielle is with them and she comments that she is fine with it. But ultimately she wants Rob to go out too, because playing with Russell H. and Parvati before she know fully well that these overly strategic forces will eventually get paranoid and cause her to lose the game. So she wants to get rid of them as soon as she can before they get rid of her. She tells Terry and Woo about Rob's plan, and they agree that they can piggy back off it to get rid of Tasha, but they also play around the idea of potentially flipping the vote on Rob.


After getting little work done on their shelter, the tribe implodes on what to do next. Courtney and Abi stormed off far away in frustration earlier, while Erik, Shii Ann, Spencer and Michaela take a break at the beach, leaving Brad and Russell to work on the camp alone. Russell wants to redeem himself after his poor performance at the Philippines, but he did not expect to be with another leader figure, and so he and Brad attempt to make amends to get this shelter built already. Erik, Shii Ann, Spencer, and Michaela express their frustrations of their tribe, and they agree to form the "stable four" alliance to vote any of the four trouble makers out. However Michaela doesn't quite trust Spencer towards his strategy, and Spencer feels the same toward Michaela, but they both agree to work together for now to get rid of the greater evils. Courtney and Abi both take a walk complaining about the buffoons that they that have to put up with for 39 days, both owing that they really don't trust anybody here, both Courtney and Abi want to redeem their social games as their sharp tongues tend to get them and their allies in trouble, and so these two decide to work together, fulling knowing they everyone will be targeting them anyway for their inherent "inabilities" to be good alliance members or challenge performers, so they start scheming to possibly take out either Erik or Spencer who seem too "calm" and threats down the line, they want to create as much chaos as possible to make everyone hate each other while they lie back and relax, as the bigger dogs eat each other.



DS-TC: DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 2)


All three tribes wake up to a sound of a motor coming from the shore, it was a small boat with a man delivering a letter to each tribe:


"Select one tribe member to get on this boat, to take on a Journey, and make a decision. They will return to camp by noon."



All three tribe were confused about what this is, some speculated it could be Exile Island, or Island of the Idols, whatever it is, they all know that they have to send someone, and they have to make sure that that someone and whatever they come back with wont mess up their games.


Make their Decisions:


Loto: https://strawpoll.com/polls/BJnX4m3QXnv

Tino: https://strawpoll.com/polls/e2navp2b0gB

Ulu: https://strawpoll.com/polls/PKglzxQGQyp


(Alright, this is your first choice in this game. Who will be going on a journey somewhere far away? These polls will close in 8 hours, 2:00 pm EST (maybe an hour late or early, I'm not quite sure how DST affects your clock). But do keep in mind while your are voting, that as Jeff would put it; "History is only an indicator of what might happen in the future". So if you think you know what is going to happen... you probably don't. Expect the unexpected. Good Luck.)

DS-TC: Journey (Day 2)


The three tribes awake to the sound of a boat arriving at their camp, they instructed to pick one tribemate to get on said boat, to go on a journey.


The Loto tribe all knew about the power struggle between the allegiances, so they elected Fishbach to become a neutral ground and spare them of any shifting of power for now. Fishbach was genuinely surprised, but he decides to take it, as whatever it out there will likely help him fit in better in his tribe and position himself into a good alliance.


The Tino tribe were all scared of what is happening, confusion and paranoia filled their heads as they all think that it is still too early for a twist like this. They haven't even seen Jeff yet, now one of them has to get on a boat? However before anyone can make a discussion about it, Rob steps in and volunteers, no one else wants to rebut nor was willing to go. And so Rob enthusiastically hopped on the boat, excited for what modern Survivor has in store for him.


The Ulu tribe immediately butted heads on who should go. Michaela wants it, Russell volunteers at one point, Courtney tries to convince them to let her go. But ultimately they just decided to "vote" upon it. With a 4 votes for him, Spencer was chosen to go, as Erik trusted him, Courtney and Abi wanted to put a target on him, and Michaela wants to test if he is going to be loyal to their alliance by telling them about what happened, if not, then that's a good sign that he's not going be trustworthy for long.


All three of them get on their respective boats, and after a long ride, they each arrive on a separate island, with a sign greeting them that says:


"if you wish to gain something great from this journey, follow the path, a choice awaits you at the end."


All three accepted the challenge and started following the long, sunny, extraneous path. Each reflecting on their previous experiences and how important this third chance is for them.


After reflecting about how his false view of the threat of the "Golden Boy" is to his detriment both times. Fishbach realizes that he really should play his own game and not get fixated on getting threats out, there will always be another golden boy to take the previous' place, and no matter what he will have to face them head on at the end. So maybe this time, he wants to be that Golden Boy, and it starts right now.


It has been a long time since Rob played, but nevertheless he still has the heart to play as if he was 24. The game has changed a lot, but he was there every step of the way. He learned a lot from his podcasts, his life, and he wants to put everything he learned to the test to disprove that he is not the "best to never win" because... in this season, he will win.


After coming close in his second chance, Spencer really regrets some of the things he has done in that season. He thought he had made good social bonds with people, but turns out he was making pawns of them all over again, and ended up being a pawn himself. This time he is done with playing chess, it is time to play a different game, a winning game.


After a long grueling walk, they each make it to a structure, with two crates, one with a bag of rice, the other with a small package saying "secret advantage" and a sign that reads:


"Congratulations for making it this far, you will now have to make a decision that may impact your game. Here you have a choice of a small bag of Rice to bring back to your tribe, this may only last you 4 days, but with little to no food, out here this bag may be enough to boost you and your tribe into winning challenges, and it will be because of you. OR you can choose get a secret advantage in this game, which may or may not help you immediately, but if you are clever enough it will benefit you greatly, however you can only open it once you get back to camp. What will it be? "


Make their choice:

Fishbach: https://strawpoll.com/polls/PKglzxvx9yp

Rob: https://strawpoll.com/polls/Q0Zp4838wZM

Spencer: https://strawpoll.com/polls/GJn4GM3Mmyz


(Alright, quite an interesting set up we have here... let's see how it will go. The polls ends at 12:00 am EST)


(The rice will give their tribe a +5 points Advantage in Tribal Challenges. As for the Secret Advantage, it will remain a secret until they get back to their camps tomorrow.)

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 2)


After taking a brief detour, Spencer, Rob and Fishbach, each made a decision, and went back to their respective tribes.


Spencer decided to take the small bag of rice, in hopes that it will allow him to get in his tribe's good graces, encourage harmony depsite the disasterous start and ease his threat level while at it. When he got back, his tribe cheered when he showed them the sack of rice, Spencer told them everything about the journey honestly and most of the tribe were okay with his decision. However Abi is quick to believe that he is hiding something, and that this is like the choice from season 30, the bag was unbelievably small, he has to have a clue too, right? She tells Courtney about this and they are ready to strike at him, first by spreading the idea from one tribemate to another, Michaela and Brad were both receptive to the rumor, and they agree that Spencer would never pass up an advantage, and so they become wary of him. While Shii Ann, was not as receptive, she doesn't care, as long as the target is off her. Erik on the other hand, became worried, and consulted Spencer if the rumor was true, Spencer told him the truth, and the two realized someone is spreading rumors out here and they should keep an eye and ear out to catch and eliminate them.


Fishbach ended up choosing the advantage, as he thought that in a ever evolving game, with many other third chancers looking to get the same crown as he does, he needs all the tools and advantages he can get, but he knew he needed to be careful, as this same advantage can be used against him, much like his previous experience with his steal a vote. When he got back to camp, his tribe greeted him and ask him about what happened. He was able to make a quick lie that he went to a separate island, where there was a challenge to hike 5 miles worth of distance in order for him to earn his tribe a small bag of rice, he attempted the challenge, but ultimately could not prevail, and he is sorry. The tribe complimented him for trying, and they gave him time to rest up at the shelter. The men believed his story, but the women were more speculative, as they all knew that there was some sort of advantage attached to that whole thing, and he is hiding it. Kass, Corinne and Brenda were all fine with him keeping a secret, as they all see him as a non-threat for now and believe that they can align with him later and use it for themselves. But Eliza quickly got paranoid and was worried that whatever it may be, even if its on Fishbach's hands, it poses a threat to her game and she needs it gone. She proposes to Corinne of a Fishbach blindside, only for Corinne tell her that if Fishbach feels anything wrong, he will play it and everything will go out of control. So it was safer for them to just let him hold on to that for now and just keep close enough that he will play it for their benefit later on. But Eliza is still paranoid, and begins thinking of other ways to neutralize that advantage. Fishbach finally gets some time alone after being pummeled by questions by Lex and he goes off into the woods to open up and read his advantage.


Meanwhile Rob, knowing that the game in this season, is going to be played even hard than ever was, and being one of the best players in the game, one of the pioneers of modern strategy, he knows he has a massive target on his back and so he wants to have any kind of advantage in this game to help him along the way. He gladly takes the advantage, and leaves to get back to camp. Where he is met by his tribemates who all asked about what happened. Rob immediately told them about the advantage, and that he wants to be upfront about it. Not only to get the target off his back, but to cause chaos in the tribe dynamics that he could control much easier than if there was a kumbaya, he doesn't reveal what the advantage is yet, but now if they want him out, they'll have to split their votes and he can gladly use that to swing the vote whatever way he wants. And it worked. The tribe was shocked about this revelation, Danielle regrets letting him even get on that boat, of course he's going back with an advantage, that's stupid of her to let her target get a way to save himself. Monica is filled with mixed emotions, as she is happy that Rob got something, but at the same time she knows how sneaky he is, and maybe this alliance with him is a mistake, she asks Laura about what she thinks of it, and Laura is just as confused and worried as she was, Monica kept expressing her paranoia to everyone at camp, and this set an alarm on Laura's head that Monica has not changed, and she will keep being paranoid about the smallest things, and making decisions off it, Laura expresses her frustations to Terry who comforts her. Woo and Tasha are now paranoid too, and they initiated forming a majority six with Terry, Danielle, Laura and Keith to counter Rob's advantage and Monica's paranoia. But Keith still doesn't trust Tasha, and he was vocal about it. Tasha becomes infuriated with Keith and begins forming other plans... all while Rob snuck off to go read what is inside the advantage.


Both Rob and Fishbach read the same thing:


Congratulations, you have an Advantage Amulet.


On its own, it has the power of a 50/50 coin, granting Immunity if flipped successfully.


However, there is a twist to this, if you are clever and are able to gather and collect the other Amulets from the other players from the other tribes, you may combine them to increase the power of this advantage.


Two Amulets will have the Full Power of a Hidden Immunity Idol. While all Three Amulets will have the extraordinary power of a Super Idol.


You must find whoever is wielding the other amulets, and you must work with them to combine and give yourselves more power.


The last time any of the amulets can be used in any capacity is when there are seven players left in the game.


Both men were incredibly shocked about this new twist of events. This is completely new to them, and they are not quite sure about what to do with it. But nevertheless what they have is indeed power, and they they will use to the best of their capabilities.


(Alright, the first of many twists this season. This 'new' advantage is going to be interesting. The third Amulet for Ulu will be hidden at their camp for someone else to find. But allow me to explain how the advantage works. Rob and Fishbach can play their amulet as a 50/50 coin at any tribal council they attend. For that super idol to be formed, all three players must still be in the game, and all three amulets must still be active. Which means if either Rob or Fishbach played their part of the amulet or got voted out with it... you cannot form the super idol, since it will be missing a piece. Obviously these two are now targets by many people... so Good luck.)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 3)


Challenge: Spiral Architect


Come on in!


Everyone, taking your first looks at who you are playing with, as they take a look at who they're playing against. I can from your looks that there some people here that you are pleased to see and some that you are not. Things are going to be interesting.


Welcome to Survivor: Third Chance, let's get on to it. For your first immunity challenge:


Six players from each tribe, one at a time, will swim out, climb up a platform and cross a rope bridge, once everyone is at shore they will have to dig up a key to open up a chest, inside that chest are puzzle pieces you will use to build a ladder and you will use that ladder to unwind some rope and bring down a sack of sand bags. The last two members will then toss those sand bags on to a series of targets. First two tribes to land a sand bag on all 6 targets, wins immunity.



This is what you covet in this game, with this you are safe from tribal council, can not be voted out in this game, you get to stay for another day. Without it, you are vulnerable.


But, that might not exactly be the case... This is the Shot in the Dark Die. You will each have one. If you get to Tribal Council, and you feel that you are vulnerable or in danger, you can choose to not vote and instead play your shot in the dark for a 1 in 6 chance of getting Immunity at that Tribal Council. It is a complete hail mary, low odds, but it could just be what you need to Survive one more day. It is a new layer of strategy in this game.


Immunity aside, you are also playing for reward, the first tribe and only the first tribe to finish, gets fire in the form of Flint. The other two will have to wait and win it some other time.


Alright, I'll give you a minute to strategize and take it all in. We'll get right on it.


Alright, tossing the sand bags, we have Lex and Eliza for Loto, Spencer and Shii Ann for Ulu, and Keith and Laura for Tino. Everyone else is in position, Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/BJnX4mvxjnv


(Alright, First Immunity Challenge, Here we Go!! The poll closes at 12:00 am EST, Ulu has a +5 vote Advantage because of Spencer's choice in the journey, the other two tribes, have nothing. But the first placing Tribe will get a +5 advantage in future challenges for that Flint. Good Luck!!)

DS-TC: Tino Camp (Day 3)


The Tino tribe returned to camp feeling absolutely defeated. They all thought that they were a strong tribe physically, but they couldn't even win this first one, and now they have to vote somebody out. After Rob's bombardment of the tribe the day before, no one really wants to walk off and strategize, and now that they know who they playing against in the other tribes, and with the reveal of this new Shot in the Dark twist. They all feel extremely paranoid now that they actually have to vote somebody out. They all mostly stayed laying around at camp until Tasha had enough and decided to go to the water well if anybody wanted to strategize with her. With that opening, everyone went of to their separate ways.


Woo, Terry, Danielle and Laura met up at the beach, they are discussing about their plan yesterday with Keith and Tasha to split the votes 3-3 between Monica and Rob to get around whatever advantage Rob may have. However, with Keith and Tasha's confrontation yesterday, it seems that those two aren't going to be working together soon. And with the Shot in the Dark possibly giving Monica immunity. The split vote plan may no longer be the best option. So they look at possibly turning the tables on Tasha.


Tasha was just patiently waiting by the water well for anybody to join and talk to her, but after a few minutes, no one did. And this immediately put into her mind that, she is not as well connected as she thought, and she's in trouble tonight. So with the privacy that she now has, she decide to go look for the hidden immunity idol.


Rob and Monica notice all the scrambling that is going on since yesterday, and they knew that they're on the bottom right now. Rob kind of regrets revealing his hand too early. But he came here to play hard, cause chaos, and take control with that chaos. He decides to talk to Keith about who he wants out, and he says Tasha. Rob considers this as an option as he think that she is the only one who can rival his strategy on this tribe. Meanwhile Monica goes to the group at the beach to gather intel and to see if she be involved in their plan, they her that it's either Rob or Tasha tonight.


Monica's arrival to their conversation soured Laura, as she was starting to get annoyed by her paranoia yesterday, and with the fact that her Husband Brad is the game too. She is extremely worried about them getting together down the line and blowing things up. So she breaks off from the group and goes to the water well but couldn't find Tasha there. She decides to go look for her, and eventually finds her. Tasha got worried, but Laura assured her that it is fine. And she was hoping that she would listen to her idea to vote out Monica not only to lessen the chaos in Tino but also to weaken Brad on Ulu. Tasha is receptive to the idea, but is more worried about her own safety, but Laura assures that votes will go to Rob and Monica tonight, just like they planned the day before.


Rob is debating with himself, if he should use his advantage tonight, which will give him a 50% chance of getting immunity tonight or if he should keep until he can form the super idol which is heaps more powerful. Monica later tells him that the majority is planning of splitting their votes between him and Tasha, and that gives him an Idea. Although, he wants her out, he goes to talk to Tasha and tells her that she's in trouble. That she will be fine if she votes with him and Monica to vote in a plurality 3-2-2-1 to take out Keith, who they believe botched the challenge, is not as good at them, and is a key part of tribal harmony, and getting rid of him will invite more chaos allowing the three of them to take strategic control of the tribe. Tasha is concerned because the offer, as she doesn't really trust Rob nor Monica, but if she really is an outcast in this tribe, then she should work with the other outcasts and let hell break loose.


As the sun is setting, everyone is afraid and paranoid about what is going to happen tonight They pack up their bags, and head out unsure of what plan is actually true, and if twist or advantages will screw things up. But nevertheless this is the game they signed up for, and they are ready for it.


(Tribal Council will be in 8 hours. 6 pm EST (+/- 1 hour, due to DST) you have until then to absorb the chaos that is happening, and make clear of the fog of War. Good Luck)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #1 (Day 3)


Despite entering the game as a pretty harmonious tribe, due to several hardworking tribe members enabling them to hit the ground running in shelter building. Some of the more sneakier tribe members began strategizing, Tasha and Rob were both out to get each other, and began rallying their troops. However the rest of the tribe weren't too keen on their early gameplay, as they deem it unnecessary this early on. Danielle in particular, has a distaste for these strategic powerhouses, and sought to take them out. She formed a tight alliance with Terry and Woo.


However, after getting back from a journey, Rob was hoping to sew chaos into the tribe to get rid of this Kumbaya, and revealed an advantage that he has, making everyone paranoid. Monica went back to her paranoiac antics, annoying Laura which caused her to defect to Terry and his alliance to join the majority. Woo and Tasha later scrambled to get a 3-3 vote split between Rob and Monica and hopefully flush Rob's advantage in the process. However Keith has a bit of a feud with Tasha from their past season, and that hinders their plan.


After losing the immunity challenge, everyone is in immediate paranoia. The majority of Terry, Danielle, Woo and Laura, discuss the split vote plan, but because of Rob's advantage and the possibility of the Shot in the Dark giving immunity to one or both of them, they set Tasha as their failsafe boot. But Rob and Monica aren't giving up just yet, as they infiltrated the majority, and got hold of their plans, and used it to make Tasha consider join up with them to make a risky play against Keith, who botched the challenge, and is a key part of the tribe's harmonic dynamics, and without him the three of them can wreck things up and take strategic control of the tribe.


It has only been three days in this game, and it's already convoluted, let's see who will be the first person voted out, and how will this affect the tribe, and the rest of the game.

DS-TC: Tribal Council #1 Tiebreaker Results (Day 3)


I'll go tally the votes.



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, Monica.


Keith


Monica


Monica (that's three votes Monica, one vote Keith)




The first person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance; Monica.


That's 4, that is enough, you need to bring me your torch.


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


Well, it has only been three days in this game, and looking at your tribe, it seems like everything is already chaotic, you still have 36 more days to go, and who knows what other chaotic twists and turns may come your way. Grab your torches, head back to camp. Good night.

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 4)


Tino gets back to their camp, and with all of this new layers of gameplay, as well as paranoia enveloping the camp, the whole tribe was just exacerbated from tribal council and voting Monica out. Nevertheless the game continues and the tribe proposes that they just don't go back to tribal again.


Laura feels amazing to see Monica's torch get snuffed. And now she has secured herself a spot in the majority alliance with Terry, Danielle and Woo, and then Keith who is orbiting around their group as well. She feels comfortable with them, and they have Rob and Tasha strictly at the bottom, ready to be picked off if they ever go to tribal again. Danielle is worried as Rob still has his mystery advantage, and Tasha is also here to do some shady things as well. She is not fond of their strategizing, specially going after Keith of all people, but right now she's hoping that their muscles can pull through and win the next immunity challenge.


However Tasha really feels insecure with her position in the tribe, as she, Rob and Monica couldn't take out Keith like they planned, and she is now in the bottom of this tribe with Rob who she does not trust at all, and without any kind of advantage to help her situation, she decided to go find one. She sprinted in the middle of the night, to go look for an Idol, she already spent a lot of time yesterday looking, and she has gotten quite familiar with her surroundings and she could mark off spots that she has looked before. And then after desperately looking for hours... she glanced at an orange wrapping by a root of a tree. She excitedly picks it up, careful not to get spotted by anyone and opens it: "Congratulations, you have found a Hidden Immunity Idol, however this Idol does not have power yet, as it has two halves, you must give one half to another player before sundown, and this idol will only have power once both pairs are in one's possession." Tasha immediately put together that this is the same type of idol as in Winners at War, now she has to pick some one from her tribemates to give a half to. But with the earlier tribal council they had... it is tough to find someone to trust. She went back to the shelter to find everyone just waking up, she thinks that she might have gotten away without anyone knowing. This is only her first idol, and she's definitely in a lot of pickle with it.


At the Loto camp, Fishbach was analyzing the advantage amulet he got from the other day, and how he could use it to it's fullest potential. He figured that he needed a partner for this, as he alone will not be able to figure out who from the other 16 people may have the amulets, so he brought in Brenda, who thinks that he could trust with this secret, and has the social skills to connect with people and figure out who has the other two amulets if or when they ever merge or swap. Brenda was delighted that he brought her into this secret, as she wanted to know what he had the moment he got back. And she does wants to help him form that super idol, as it's massive power could potentially save her too down the line, and without the actual trinket on her hands, she does not have to bear much responsibility with it. So she signs on.


Meanwhile, Tai and Caleb were collecting firewood, the two of them also got to talking about some bits of strategy, and they figured that their alliance with Eliza and Corinne, may not be the most secure, as they often see them talking with other people in the tribe as well. So they set up a contingency plan; an Idol. Tai knowing that he has become an idol hunting expert, decides to teach Caleb a few lessons in it. They searched all over the woods, in the nooks and crannies, however they just couldn't find anything. But Eliza did spot them, and between this and Fishbach's advantage, her paranoia is through the roof, and she does not know how to control herself. So she approaches Kass and Lex that Tai and Caleb are on the move for the idol, and she's ready to make a move to take them out. Kass feared Tai's uncanny ability to find idols, and so the three of them start to discuss plans on how neutralize him.


And at the Ulu Camp, the tribe celebrated having both fire and food, and despite a very rough first few days, the tribe is genuinely happy as of now. Russell and Brad both bury the hatchet of their leadership feud, deciding the co-lead the tribe to the best of their abilities, and if things go wrong, then they're at least "leading" two different factions to duke it out at Tribal. Russell managed to integrate himself with Erik, Spencer, Michaela and Shii Ann's group, while Brad has found himself along with Abi and Courtney, which is not an ideal situation for him, but after his other tribemates found out that his wife is on another tribe, then that was an understandable clue for them to not work with him. And with Tino going to tribal, he is a bit scared that Monica may not walk in with them at the next challenge. So right now, he is focusing on being able to bury the hatchet with another player, Michaela. After their not so good history in Game Changers, he thought that she would be gunning for his elimination this time around, so he attempts to make amends to her, in hopes of getting her off his back, and possibly even flipping her over to his side. Michaela sees through it, and knows that he's desperate, although revenge is sweet, possibly taking out a strategic threat in Spencer, would be better.


Spencer is still concerned of a rogue rumor of him returning with an advantage when he went on a journey, and although he did take the rice, it still sucks that his target is bigger than ever, and he probably should've just taken the advantage instead, but nevertheless, its the game, and he still wants to play. He thinks that it is Abi that started the rumor, due to her personality. But he knows that confronting her will only lead to chaos, and so he opts to just talk to Erik and Shii Ann about it and that Abi should go pretty soon, and they agree. Meanwhile Abi and Courtney, were at the water well getting water, while having mean conversations towards their tribemates. This carried on, until Abi spotted something by a tree branch, she alerted Courtney who went and grabbed it while Abi took watch, Courtney found a small package labelled "secret advantage" and she delightfully opens it up: (it's the same note as Fishbach and Rob's, go read it from the other post.) Courtney is both grinning sinisterly, and pretty much confused on what the hell this all means.

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 5)


Challenge: Boats, Brains & Brawn


Ulu and Loto, taking your first look at the new Tino tribe, Monica voted out at the first tribal council. Alright, are you ready for your today's immunity challenge? Firsts things first, I gotta take it back. Once again immunity is back up for grabs, for today's challenge:


Five players from each tribe will race to paddle their boat towards a flage and then to a series of crates, you will dive down to release each crate and put it on your boat. Once you have all five crates, you will paddle back to shore, and use those crates to create a staircase. Once up top, the last two tribe members will solve a giant stone puzzle. First two tribes to finish wins immunity.


In addition, you are also playing for reward; for the first tribe to finish, you get a choice of a small tarp or a small set of fishing gear, smaller rewards in a more difficult game. Second tribe to finish will get whichever is left. Losers, nothing but a date with me at tribal council somebody will be voted out.


Alright, Ulu, Loto, you both have one extra member, you're sitting somebody out, who will it be? Courtney, Eliza, take a seat at the sit out bench, for the rest of you, I'll give you a minute to strategize, we'll get it on.


On the Puzzles, we have Spencer and Shii Ann for Ulu. Rob and Tasha for Tino. And Kass and Stephen for Loto. The rest are on their boat.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/6QnM7PeBoZe


(Alright, so from previous rewards, Ulu now has a +10 vote advantage in challenges. And I have decided to remove the "disadvantage votes" part of Dream Season challenges, it will now just be a Advantages won from Rewards, with a limit of 25, until we swap or change things up. The rewards for this challenge will both bring +3 points to both winning tribes. This poll will end at 12 am EST. Good Luck)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 5)


All three tribes are off, Tino on an early lead, they working well together. Loto right behind them, while Ulu is struggling to steer their boat properly. Tino and Loto making good progress, they are close to their flag, after that you must turn your boat around and start releasing those crates. Tino on their first crate, Woo dives down. Ulu finally making progress they're making their way to that flag. Loto is on their first crate, Lex dives down. Woo has their first crate for Tino, they're bringing it in on their boat, you have to be careful with that, it can cause your boat to topple. Lex has their first crate for Loto. Ulu finally around their flag, they can start releasing their crates, Erik in the water. Tino on their second crate, Woo dives down again. Loto at their second crate, this it's Caleb diving down. Ulu has their first crate. Caleb gets the the second crate for Loto, they're now in the lead. Woo has their second crate for Tino. Ulu making Brad dive for their second crate. Loto at their third crate, Caleb dives down again, Tino right behind, this time they send Terry down. Caleb makes quick work of their third crate, extending their lead. Terry has Tino's third crate. Ulu now arriving at their third, they get Michaela down, and she gets it quickly, Ulu has now right behind Tino. Caleb has Loto's fourth crate and he looks exhausted. Tino and Ulu at their fourth crate at the same time, they send Woo and Erik down, who will get it first? Loto at their fifth and final crate, Lex going down. Ulu and Loto both have their crates. Lex taking some time to get that final crate. Both Ulu and Tino arriving at their final crate. Lex has it for Loto, they have all five, now get to Shore!! Ulu has Michaela back down, Tino has Terry, Ulu has their final crate, they can go back to shore, Terry has theirs, go!!


We are neck and neck in this challenge, Loto at a slight lead right now, they are bringing down their crates. But both Ulu and Tino are right behind them. You have to put all your crates on the platform before you can start working on your staircase, Loto's struggling to get their crates here, while Ulu are just flying through this part of the challenge, they have taken the lead. Ulu, you're good, start working. This staircase must be put correctly, it has this Season's name on it. Loto lost their lead, as Tino is just behind them. They both have all crates, you're good! Start working on the stair case. Ulu is working together well, they has three crates in, now just putting their fourth, and now their fifth. You're good. Spencer and Shii Ann can now climb that stair case and begin working on their puzzle. Tino and Loto still trying find which crate must go to what position. Giving Ulu a time advantage to study this puzzle. It is the same puzzle as the opening challenge of San Juan Del Sur, a very complicated puzzle, these pieces are not only heavy, but will fit in many positions, but still not be correct. Tino has their staircase done, Loto right behind. Puzzle makers get up there!



Ulu's time advantage has now evaporated, but they have a couple pieces in, but will it be right? Loto and Tino, now starting on their puzzle. This is the type of puzzle that you can solve in an instant, but the chances are, you won't. Ulu is wrong, you must keep rearranging these pieces until you get it right, which will tire you even more. Spencer moving pieces around. Kass and Fishbach trying to analyze this puzzle first, while Rob and Tasha are just putting pieces in and seeing what is right. Shii Ann moves a piece, they can see the puzzle getting together, and they are wrong! Rob and Tasha, putting their final piece... it doesn't fit! Kass and Fishbach think they have something and they're working on it. Spencer and Shii Ann, moving pieces around, these are heavy, they have their final piece, are they right this time? They are!! Ulu wins Immunity and Reward!! We're looking for one more! Both tribes now looking at Ulu's finished puzzle. Kass and Fishbach, have taken a methodical approach, will it pay off? They have a few pieces left, but it is right? It is not! Giving Tasha and Rob a chance finish it first, they have been moving pieces around, they have one left, and it's right!! Tino wins Immunity and Reward! Sending Loto to Tribal Council!!


Alright, Ulu, job well done, immunity is yours once again. You also get to pick between a tarp and fishing gear to take back to camp. Tarp it is, come grab it, and head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Tino, you wont have to go back to tribal council, Congrats, you also won a fishing gear, make use of that however you want. But since you won reward you also win fire in the form of flint. Come grab it, head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Loto, great effort, but unfortunately, I've got nothing for you. I will be seeing you tonight at Tribal Council where somebody will be the second person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be, grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.


(I forgot to mention that Loto and Tino can win their flint, if they win any other reward. So Tino will get a bonus +5 points for said flint. Putting the totals to Ulu with 13, Tino with 8, and Loto with nothing.)

DS-TC: Loto Camp (Day 5)


The Loto Tribe returned to camp utterly disappointed with their performance, they had a lead and they blew it. The tribe dynamics are already tense for the past few days, but now that they have to go to Tribal Council, it will just all go to hell now. And it did, as a paranoid Eliza quickly gathered Kass, Lex, Corinne and Brenda into a five person voting block against either Fishbach, who may have a secret advantage, or Tai who may have already found an Idol. They can get Fishbach to vote for Tai so that they can split the votes 3-3 between them. Kass and Lex both agree on the idea, as they do believe that Tai is a massive strategic threat that should be taken care of sooner than later. Brenda however, doesn't want Fishbach gone yet, as he has the amulet that may become a powerful tool for her to use in the future.


But Corinne does not want to take out Tai, as his keen ability to find idols may be better for her game down the line, so once the group has broken up, she goes straight to Tai to warn him about an impending coup against him. Tai foreseen this possibility, and he, Caleb and Corinne, set a counter coup to take out Kass, another massive strategic threat and the leader of the opposition, then they reached out to Fishbach and Brenda to join them. Corinne also asked Eliza to join them, but Eliza believes that Tai is the bigger threat, many other people will want to take out Kass later on the season, putting Corinne in a difficult position on who to side with on this vote. All the while, Tai and Caleb go out in the woods to go look for that Idol for good measure.



Tai and Caleb frantically search for the Idol, after looking for about an hour, they consider just hopping on the enemies' split vote plan and vote out Fishbach. However, Lex who has gotten quite paranoid too, was also searching, soon these three spot each other and awkwardly conversed about their idol hunting. But this was good for Lex who put together that those two have yet to find the idol themselves, and it is still out there. So once he broke away from them he began searching for it even more. And eventually he spots something purple high up at a tree and grabs a long branch and pokes it down, he grabbed the package and moved to a more private location, it is in fact a Hidden Immunity Idol. Lex couldn't control his joy, and is practically holding his breath to avoid making a noise, but he reads the rest of the note and learns that he has to share it with someone. He goes back to camp, and tells Kass about it, and they subtly celebrated, both of them fully know the power of an Idol, but neither of them have ever actually held one yet, so this was a cause for celebration the two of them lock in their alliance, and discuss what to with that Idol.


Meanwhile, now realizing that they are on the Swing Vote position between two groups, Fishbach and Brenda discussed which side would be more beneficial for them. But they both realized that Eliza was the catalyst for all the camp drama and paranoia, as well being being their tribe's weakest member in challenges. So maybe getting rid of her is the best case scenario for the whole tribe. They talk to everyone but Corinne and Eliza about this and they all consider it. Kass and Lex also consider playing their idol on her to Idol out Tai, but it is a big risk to take. Corinne later hears this plan from Caleb and she is troubled about it, she doesn't want to see Eliza go, but her paranoia got her in trouble, and so she tries to see if she can still save her by asking everyone if their respective plans are still good. They told her yes, but that could only mean that somebody is lying and she doesn't know what is going to happen tonight.


(Tribal Council is in 8 Hours, 6 pm EST. Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #2 (Day 5)


The dynamics of this tribe were tense as there were three different pairs of two fighting for power. Corinne and Eliza quickly found themselves in the middle as they formed a quick "Duos" alliance with Tai and Caleb, while Lex and Kass sought to make a "villains" alliance with them too. While Brenda was working her way into the dynamics of the three pairs, and Fishbach found himself in a journey, with a brand new advantage.


Eliza got paranoid about the possibility of Fishbach's advantage and sought to take him out. Later on, she found Tai and Caleb looking for an idol and got even more paranoid. She talked to Kass and Lex about it and they are in an agreement, as they also believe that Tai is a threat to their game. While a fourth pair was formed when Fishbach told Brenda about his advantage, in hopes that she will be able to help him use it.


When the tribe lost the immunity challenge, the Tribe quickly went to scrambling, a five person voting block, consisting of Eliza, Kass, Lex, Corinne and Brenda planned to split their votes between Tai and Fishbach to flush their advantages. But Corinne doesn't quite agree with the target, and tells Tai about it. Together with Caleb, Brenda and Fishbach, they planned a counter coup against Kass, who they perceived as their leader. Corinne later talked with Eliza about this, but she made Corinne reconsider her goals.


Meanwhile Lex was able to beat Tai to the Hidden Immunity Idol and shared it with Kass to activate it. While Fishbach and Brenda were thinking about their swing vote status, they realize that Eliza is the one causing paranoia and chaos, and is their weakest challenge performer, so they worked on turning the vote on her, of which everyone was mostly good with, but they all had their bigger fish to fry.


So which Fish will end up fried, and which will still be able to swim in the ocean? Let's find out.


It is time to vote:

Well, it appears we had two clearly defined sides, though for some, it’s not to a fault. But this game is unpredictable, and as we just saw, those sides are definitely not as clear as you thought. Grab your torches, head back to camp, good night.

DS-TC: Reward Challenge (Day 6)


Ulu, Tino, taking your first look at the new Loto tribe, Tai voted out at the last Tribal Council. Alright are you ready to get to today's Reward Challenge? For today's challenge:


There are seven logs out in the ocean. On my go, all seven tribe members will swim out to the first log, unclip it, bring it back to shore and put it on the staircase. Then six members will swim out to get the next log, then five, then four, until we get to only one, and they have to swim out to get the farthest and last log. First two tribes to have all seven logs on the staircase and all seven members on the platform, wins reward.


Want to know what you are playing for?


At the start of this season, we took away your food rations in the form of Rice. You have been out here for 6 days now, you gotta miss having any kind of food in your belly. So in this challenge, you have a chance to win your food rations back. First two tribes will get this whole basket full of rice, should be enough to last you until the end of the game. But the First tribe to finish will get a little something extra. Beans, Fruit, and an extra pot, along with that Rice, it is a lot. Worth Playing For?


Alright, Ulu you have one extra member, you're sitting somebody out, keep in mind you cannot sit the same person in back to back challenges, who will it be? Courtney, take a seat on the sit out bench. For the rest of you, I'll give you a minute to strategize, we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/QrgeVjm5KZp


(The Reward from this challenge will be worth +5 for the First placing Tribe, and then +3 for the Second placing Tribe. And From previous reward wins, Ulu has +13, Tino has +8, Loto has nothing, but they will also get their Flint worth +5 if they win this challenge in first or in second. Oh... keep it mind, the winning tribes will get a little more than just food (wink wink) stay tuned for that.)

DS-TC: Reward Challenge Results (Day 6)


All three tribes are off! Everyone off to a good start, Ulu taking an early lead however, but Loto and Tino are right behind. Ulu at their first log, they got it unclipped they can now go back. Loto at their first log, Tino at their first log, we are neck and neck in this challenge. Ulu is back, they are dropping off Shii Ann. Loto is back, they drop off Eliza. Tino drops off Tasha. Ulu still with a slight lead in this challenge, but the whole tribe must stay together at each leg, which means you are only as fast as your slowest member, and Russell is slowing down for Ulu, allowing Loto and Tino to catch up. Ulu and Tino at their second log, they got it. Loto now falling behind, but they are still in it. Ulu and Tino back at shore at the same time, and they're back at the ocean at the same time too, they drop off Russell and Keith. Loto just going back to from their second log, they drop off Kass. Ulu and Tino are neck and neck in this challenge, they both make it to their third log, while Loto is just getting back into the ocean. Tino is back first, Ulu right there with them, they drop off Danielle and Abi. It is literally a race between these two tribes, Loto has fallen out of it, Loto is on their third log, while Tino and Ulu are about to get their fourth.


All three tribes are back to shore, they drop off Spencer, Rob and Corinne. Tino and Ulu both out to get their fifth log, Loto is only out to get their fourth. But it looks like Tino and Ulu are slowing a bit down, this challenge is difficult and grueling having to swim back and forth, back and forth it will exhaust you, and it looks Tino and Ulu are running out of gas, can Loto use this to catch up? Loto at their fourth log, they're going back. Tino and Ulu trying to power through, everyone is tired. Loto back to shore, they drop off Brenda, they're coming for their fifth, they are catching up. Tino and Ulu are on their fifth, both tribes using it as a buoy to catch their breath. But Ulu makes a swim for it, Tino right behind. Loto is catching up but they still have a long way to go. Loto at their fifth log, while Ulu and Tino back on shore, they drop off Michaela and Laura. While their remaining players decide lie down on the sand for a while catching their breath. Giving Loto an opportunity to fully catch up, but as Loto makes it back to shore, Ulu and Tino both enter the water once again, Loto drop out Fishbach and Lex and Caleb decide to swim after the other tribes.


It is now down to Erik and Brad for Ulu, Terry and Woo for Tino, Lex and Caleb for Loto. Which tribe can get their last two logs to finish this challenge? All six men look exhausted, but they still have to swim to the two farthest logs to get it. Ulu gets to it first, decides to catch their breath first. Tino gets to their log, but they decide to bring it back immediately, while Ulu still rests. Loto gets to their sixth log, and they decide to swim back too. Ulu now goes for it. All three tribes are neck and neck, Tino gets to shore first, but Ulu and Loto are right behind. Woo, Erik and Lex all drop off... it is now down to one. Brad, Terry and Caleb, who will get their tribe the reward? Terry in the water first, followed by Brad and then Caleb, all three wants to prove something and they are in it to win it for their tribes. Brad laps Terry and makes it to his last Log first, and goes straight back to shore. Terry not giving up he makes it to the last log and swims back. Caleb is behind, he is determined, he gets his log and goes back. It is a tight race now between all three players but who can get back to shore first? Terry and Brad both back at the same time, they pass the log to their tribe mates. You need all seven member on top of that platform to win. Ulu and Tino placing their last logs... who can get their whole tribe on top first? Ulu has it! Ulu wins Reward!! Tino close behind, but they still get second place.


Alright, this was an extremely difficult challenge for all of you, but thankfully, the reward is plentiful. Ulu, Tino, you both get this large basket of rice, but I'm not gonna make you carry it back to camp it will just be there when you get back. But Ulu edged out to get first place... so you will get these extra food, beans and fruit, you will have to grab it here though, you can head back to camp. Loto, unfortunately I got nothing for you, head back to camp.

DS-TC: Reward Challenge Results (Day 6)


All three tribes are off! Everyone off to a good start, Ulu taking an early lead however, but Loto and Tino are right behind. Ulu at their first log, they got it unclipped they can now go back. Loto at their first log, Tino at their first log, we are neck and neck in this challenge. Ulu is back, they are dropping off Shii Ann. Loto is back, they drop off Eliza. Tino drops off Tasha. Ulu still with a slight lead in this challenge, but the whole tribe must stay together at each leg, which means you are only as fast as your slowest member, and Russell is slowing down for Ulu, allowing Loto and Tino to catch up. Ulu and Tino at their second log, they got it. Loto now falling behind, but they are still in it. Ulu and Tino back at shore at the same time, and they're back at the ocean at the same time too, they drop off Russell and Keith. Loto just going back to from their second log, they drop off Kass. Ulu and Tino are neck and neck in this challenge, they both make it to their third log, while Loto is just getting back into the ocean. Tino is back first, Ulu right there with them, they drop off Danielle and Abi. It is literally a race between these two tribes, Loto has fallen out of it, Loto is on their third log, while Tino and Ulu are about to get their fourth.


All three tribes are back to shore, they drop off Spencer, Rob and Corinne. Tino and Ulu both out to get their fifth log, Loto is only out to get their fourth. But it looks like Tino and Ulu are slowing a bit down, this challenge is difficult and grueling having to swim back and forth, back and forth it will exhaust you, and it looks Tino and Ulu are running out of gas, can Loto use this to catch up? Loto at their fourth log, they're going back. Tino and Ulu trying to power through, everyone is tired. Loto back to shore, they drop off Brenda, they're coming for their fifth, they are catching up. Tino and Ulu are on their fifth, both tribes using it as a buoy to catch their breath. But Ulu makes a swim for it, Tino right behind. Loto is catching up but they still have a long way to go. Loto at their fifth log, while Ulu and Tino back on shore, they drop off Michaela and Laura. While their remaining players decide lie down on the sand for a while catching their breath. Giving Loto an opportunity to fully catch up, but as Loto makes it back to shore, Ulu and Tino both enter the water once again, Loto drop out Fishbach and Lex and Caleb decide to swim after the other tribes.


It is now down to Erik and Brad for Ulu, Terry and Woo for Tino, Lex and Caleb for Loto. Which tribe can get their last two logs to finish this challenge? All six men look exhausted, but they still have to swim to the two farthest logs to get it. Ulu gets to it first, decides to catch their breath first. Tino gets to their log, but they decide to bring it back immediately, while Ulu still rests. Loto gets to their sixth log, and they decide to swim back too. Ulu now goes for it. All three tribes are neck and neck, Tino gets to shore first, but Ulu and Loto are right behind. Woo, Erik and Lex all drop off... it is now down to one.

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 6)


The Loto tribe arrives back to their camp, exhausted from the challenge and bummed by another loss. Caleb in particular is most upset by this loss as following their Tribal Council yesterday, he is now in the bottom of their tribe. Corinne and Brenda flipped on him while Fishbach was able to leverage his 50/50 idol advantage to integrate himself into the power structure owing he will use it for the good of the tribe. And Caleb's only saving grace is his challenge ability, and his failure to win this one reward challenge may spiral into a huge losing streak, showing that he's not as good as before, and maybe not worth keeping around. Fishbach hoped that revealing the 50/50 portion of the Amulet Advantage, but not the other possible combinations, will help ease Eliza and tribal tensions moving forward, as well putting himself is slight power position. Eliza is still a little worried of Fishbach but takes his word for granted, but if she ever feels like he has to go, he has to go. Meanwhile Corinne, Kass and Lex, realizing that they may be in a sinking ship with their tribe severely weakening day by day. They lock in a Final Three deal wanting to put themselves on the top of the Loto pecking order, keeping out strategic threats Brenda and Fishbach, and wildcard Eliza, if they ever have to go back to tribal council several more times, but they hope for the best that they win immunity tomorrow.


At the Tino camp, the tribe returned to see their new rice basket, and they quickly set out to have a feast! Terry goes into the ocean, with their fishing gear to try and catch a few fish to have with their rice. While everyone else settle in and try to cook a bountiful amount of rice to make up for the 5 day diet they've been on. After a while, Terry returns with three medium sized fishes, which is not a lot, but the tribe was happy for it. Together they eat a lot of food and bonded as a tribe. After their meal, the tribe separated, Laura and Danielle went to watch their pots, Keith went for a walk, Terry and Woo stayed at their shelter and then Tasha and Rob went to the water well to discuss some strategy. Two days ago Tasha found the idol and had to show it to someone to activate it's power, after a long deliberation, she reluctantly showed it to Rob, as they are both on the bottom of this tribe and need all the help they can get if they want to change things up. As a sign of good faith, Rob then reveals to Tasha about his whole advantage and the opportunity to have a super idol at some point. Tasha is surprised about this, and is now even more concerned on what Rob might do with, but right now they are all what each other has, and they will use these two advantages to break this game wide open and turn it in their favor. Meanwhile Woo and Terry were suspicious of how large the rice basket was, as if it was a prop, and they began searching it for a clue or something, Woo did the work, while Terry stood by in case anybody came back, and low and behold there was a secret compartment in the lid of the basket. It said "Beware Advantage, if you take it's yours, and you must do what it says, otherwise, leave it." After some panicked bursts of joy, Terry told Woo to make a run in the jungle and read in private, while he stayed at the shelter and covered for him. Woo made a Sonic reference again and then found a spot to go read what has inside...


At the Ulu camp, the tribe was once again proud of their challenge performance, now getting much needed food. They quickly munched on some of the fruits they just won and vowed that victories just keep on coming. Brad was really hurt when he saw Monica not there in the last immunity challenge, and he knew it was only a matter of time when he will get picked off as well, he's already in a minority position in this tribe along with Abi and Courtney, but he's not looking too good. Paranoid, he spent the past few hours looking for an idol in hopes of bettering his chances on surviving in this game, but he couldn't find anything. After putting the rice they already have on to their new basket, Abi noticed something peculiar about the basket, it looks shockingly similar to the rice basket they had back in the Philippines, and maybe there was an idol or a clue hidden somewhere in there. Abi knows that Courtney has her amulet, and her other alliance Brad has nothing, doesn't even know about the Amulet, and is very paranoid right now, so she decides to point him towards the basket to look for something, he goes to try and find anything and he discovers the secret compartment and the Beware advantage inside it. They sneak off into the woods to go find out what it is, but Abi assures that Brad can keep it, as she thinks that will solidify their alliance and if all goes wrong she and Courtney can put the target on Brad instead of themselves. Brad and Abi find a spot to read it.


Both Woo and Brad read the same things, with some minor changes...


Ulu's: "Congratulations, you have found an Extra Vote Advantage. It will allow you to cast a second vote at any tribal council, this advantage can be played up until the final 14."


Tino's: "Congratulations, you have found a Vote Blocker Advantage. It will allow you to block another player from voting at any tribal council, this advantage can be played up until the final 14."


Same: However, by opening this package you have locked yourself into a risky game of chance: Keep It or Steal It.


One person from the other reward winning tribe, has found another advantage. And you have an opportunity to steal it. You both will have to make the decision based of nothing but sheer gut.


- If you both decide to Keep It, you will both get to keep your respective advantages.

- If you both decide to Steal It, you will both lose the advantages and they will be discarded from the game.

- If one player decides to Keep It, and the other decides to Steal It, the person who Stole It will get to Steal the other advantage, while the person who Kept It, will lose it and get nothing.


And if you have both Advantages in your hands, you can combine them into something more powerful; a Steal a Vote, enabling you to steal someone's vote and cast it as your own during a Tribal Council, now playable up until the Final 6.


Make their Decision:

Brad: https://strawpoll.com/polls/eJnv7O414gv

Woo: https://strawpoll.com/polls/YVyP2GdxBgN


(Alright!!! Now we're getting to the good stuff. So allow me to formally introduce the main twist of the season... combining advantages to increase their power, but risking another player's life in the game. This one is based off the ship wheel Island, but instead of risking your vote, you are just risking an advantage you just found. It's a bit more risky, as there is no "safe" option" for both of them, since the other could just steal it from them. It adds a layer of complexity that you could just give them both power, but could be giving more power to someone but risking the elimination of another player, or you can screw them both over. So what do you do?)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 7)


Challenge: United We Stand


Alright, are you ready to get to today's immunity challenge? First things first, I gotta take it back. Once again immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge:


Each tribe must use stepping poles to transfer three tribe members from one platform to another. Once all three are across, the whole tribe must then swim out to a smaller platform. First two tribes to get all seven members on top of that platform, with both feet on or above the top deck, wins immunity.


Ulu, you have one extra member, you have to sit someone out, you sat out Courtney last time, who will it be this time? Russell. Alright, take a seat on the sit out bench. I'll give the rest of you a minute to strategize, we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/kogjvoBJqg6


(I have seen a few comments concerned about the challenge advantages being too high for Loto to be able to catch up on, so I am going to be making some revisions. First getting rid of Ulu's old bag of rice from day 2, as that was actually only supposed to last 4 days or something, so I think that has run it's course. Flints will still be worth 5 points as fire is important in this game, but the tarp and fishing gear will be reduced from 3 points to just 2. And the basket of rice Ulu and Tino just won will also be worth 2 points, as I think they'll reasonably ration it to last them for a long time. And then Ulu will just get 1 more from the extra beans and fruits they won at the last challenge.)


(In summary... Ulu went from +18 to now just +10, and then Tino from +12 to just +9, and Loto still has nothing. But if they do win this challenge they'll be given their flint. But Ulu and Tino are just playing for Immunity. Hopefully these changes makes the challenges a little more fair. Thanks for tuning in!!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 7)


It is Brenda, Eliza and Corinne on the platform for Loto, Courtney, Abi and Shii Ann for Ulu, and Danielle, Laura and Tasha for Tino. Everyone else are on the stepping poles. Eliza up first for Loto, while Abi and Danielle are first for the other tribes. This challenge is now even trickier, as those stepping poles are even smaller than it were before, you could barely put one foot on there and you must use both poles, you can't do what James did in Fans vs Favorites. Danielle drops, she has to go back. Loto and Ulu doing a good job, they're about halfway through now, both are taking it slow and steady. Tino is struggling to work well together on keeping Danielle on top, she falls again, you need communication and coordination in this Challenge. Ulu has Abi across, they can now go back to get their second member. Loto is right behind they get Eliza across. Next up is Brenda and Courtney, while Tino is struggling, they decide to take it slow and steady, and its working, but will it be enough to catch up to the other two tribes? Ulu and Loto are neck and neck right now, both are about to lap Tino who have yet to get one member across. Loto gets Brenda across, Ulu gets Courtney across, Tino almost there... Danielle is across!


All three tribes going back to the first plaform, Ulu and Loto to pick up Shii Ann and Corinne, their last members, while Tino still has two and a lot of ground to cover. Ulu and Loto are working together well, they absolutely found a rhythm for this challenge, which Tino has not, Laura trying to communicate with her tribe but they can't seem to work well. Meanwhile Ulu and Loto are just blasting through this part of the challenge, both are neck and neck about to get their last members across. Shii Ann is through, Ulu can move on! Loto taking a little more time, but Corinne gets across, Loto can move on! Once again Tino is taking the slow and steady approach, but at this point they are really just behind, all they can hope for is that the other two tribes can't finish the last part of this challenge.


Ulu and Loto both make it to the platform, now they have to figure out how to fit seven people on top of that platform built for five. Everyone is climbing on the platform, you must have both feet on top or above. Loto quickly has all seven on top, they're waiting on Kass to get up, she's in, 5, 4, 3... Oh, Loto lost their balance, several of them fall on the water. While Ulu is taking a different approach, putting in one person at a time, see how they fit, they have Abi and Michaela left. Michaela's in. Now it's down to Abi, she's in... 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Ulu's got it! Ulu wins immunity!! we're looking for one more! Loto building themselves back up, while Tino is still on the first part of this challenge, they have Laura across, they're working on Tasha now, but they must move fast if they every want to catch up to Loto. Loto has six member on it, they're waiting on Kass again, she's in, they're gonna try again... 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Loto wins Immunity!! Sending Tino to tribal council!!


Alright, Ulu, you remain undefeated, immunity is yours once again, no one going home tonight. Loto, great effort, second place still gets you the same thing, immunity, you have to see me again at tribal, oh and I almost forgot, you now get fire in the form flint, here you go. Tino, great effort, but that was a blow out. I will be seeing you tonight at Tribal Council where somebody will be the third person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be, grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.


(Loto gets their flint, putting the Net Challenge points to... Ulu: 5, Tino: 4, Loto: 0. Let's see how this will play out in future challenges.)

DS-TC: Tino Camp (Day 7)


The tribe returned to their camp after being utterly defeated in the immunity challenge. The tribe was really feeling tense especially after their previous tribal council when dynamics really cleared up and everyone now knows their place.


The majority five of Terry, Danielle, Woo, Laura and Keith, discuss how to go around Rob's mystery advantage and Tasha possibly playing her shot in the dark. They ultimately decided on splitting their votes 3-2 in the event that one of them becomes immune, everyone settles on this plan and goes off to do camp chores. Woo had already told Terry about his new Vote Blocker advantage, and they plan to use it moving forward at a swap or the merge, but they keep it a secret between themselves for now, seeing as they won't need to use it for a while, but he will bring it to tribal just in case.


Meanwhile Rob and Tasha were trying to figure out what to do about their minority position, they really don't trust each other but they reluctantly agreed to work together to better their chances of coming out of this tribal intact, but if things go wrong, they can always vote for each other. A 5-2 deficit is a not good spot to be in, but luckily... they still have an Idol that no one else knows about and a 50/50 amulet which everyone knows about but is not sure about what it exactly it is, which gives them a fighting chance in this tribe. But they don't want to use these advantages this early as there is still a long game ahead of them that they could use these trinkets on. So they set out to try and flip somebody from the majority.


They first talk to Keith and Laura whom they see are on the bottom half of their alliance to see if they are interested in flipping. When asked for a name, Rob and Tasha told them Danielle, as her anti-strategy sentiment is not going to fly their entire tribe anywhere past merge, especially when idols, twists and advantages being all over the place and that the two of them can help them maneuver all these twists to get all of them to final 6, and as a sweetener, Rob decides to tell them that his advantage was a 50/50 coin, and he will be willing to use it for them in the future. Keith and Laura were both intrigued and considered the offer, but they aren't sure if they could trust them now or even in the future.


Rob and Tasha decide to go for one more; Woo. They offered the same things as they did with Keith and Laura, but Woo is really not sure about that, as he doesn't want to upset his closest ally Terry, by voting out Danielle. But he is on the fence because he has a Vote Blocker and he isn't quite sure on how to use it to great effect in the future, and that's where Rob and Tasha could help him figure it out. Ultimately, he, Keith and Laura have a choice tonight, and anything can happen at Tribal, so they best be ready for it.


(Tribal is in 8 hours, 6:00 pm EST.)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #3 (Day 7)


After their visit at the first tribal council of the season, the Tino tribe is now spilt. With a majority faction with Terry, Woo, Danielle, Laura and Keith, they settled to split their voted between the two outsiders; Tasha and Rob who now at the bottom because of their strategic prowess, but they do have an Idol and a 50/50 amulet at their disposal if the need ever comes. But they settle on trying to flip some people to their side.


They sought to flip at least two of Keith, Laura or Woo. In hopes to take out Danielle with her Anti-Strategy sentiment and that sparing them will help their tribe better overcome what's ahead in this game. All three were intrigued but are unsure if this was the right move.


Will Rob and Tasha's plan work? Or will they have to use an advantage tonight? Or will something else happen entirely? Let's find out.

DS-TC: Tribal Council #3 Results (Day 7)


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.


Tasha: Yeah, I think the writing's on the wall for tonight. But luckily, I have an eraser, here you go Jeff.


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


Tasha (does not count)


Tasha (does not count)


Tasha (does not count)


Tasha (does not count)


Danielle (that's one vote Danielle)


The third person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance; Danielle.


That's 2, that is enough, you need to bring me your torch.


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


Just when you think you know what is happening... something else happens. This game is full of surprises. Grab your torches, head back to camp, good night.

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 8)


The Tino tribe returned from tribal council utterly flabbergasted from what just happened. Terry was most confused as he was blindsided that Tasha had an idol and voted out Danielle, who he really wanted to play this game with. The majority was supposed to split their vote, but when Rob whipped out his advantage at tribal and revealed it's power as a 50/50 coin, Woo and Keith got paranoid and switched their votes thinking Tasha was a safe vote, but she was not. Rob and Tasha snuck off and celebrated their big move, now they are down two to the majority four, who will need to split their votes 2-2 to counter Rob's amulet, and all they need is one person to flip to make it a 3-2-1. And with Danielle gone, who served as their strategic head of the majority, the body will soon fall. Terry, Woo, Laura and Keith were very impressed by their move, but now they now who they are really up against, and they should now figure out how to beat them at their own game. Thinking that it was his fault that Danielle is gone, so in an effort to apologize to his alliance, Woo revealed that he has a vote blocker in case they needed it, but would much rather save it for later in the game, the rest of them agreed. But because Tasha has found and played that idol, they figured it should be put back into play and rehidden at their camp, and so they broke off to try and find it. Rob and Tasha noticed that the others were looking for it, and made their move as well. The whole tribe spent the whole morning looking for that Idol, but no one found anything.


At the Loto camp, the tribe was joyful now that they have Fire, spending 7 days without it was such a morale downer, and they are glad that they finally have it and it could signify that this could be a strong tribe moving forward. Caleb was extremely happy winning the challenge yesterday, as going to tribal would meant that he was likely to go home after being renegaded to the bottom. But he is afraid that they can't keep winning immunity and so decided to talk to Fishbach, Brenda and Corinne to see where their heads are at, and if they want to form an alliance to either take Kass or Eliza out. Fishbach and Brenda both agree to the idea but are unsure if it is the better move, they do want to keep Caleb around for his challenge strength, which means they'll have to turn from the majority which is a very risky play right now. Corinne on the other hand is every torn, as she keeps finding herself in the middle of the tribe, and having to save Eliza from being the boot, and she doesn't want to see her friend go too early, but if the situation turns dire, she may have to write her name down. Meanwhile Kass and Lex talk about the pecking order, as winning yesterday's challenge, made them realize that booting Caleb will spell a lot of disaster for their whole tribe, and they discuss getting rid of Fishbach first, thinking that he is less loyal than Brenda, with the potential allies he may have in the other tribes, alongside his dangerous advantage, and strategic acumen, which Kass has first hand experience of. They begin gathering numbers to blindside him.


At the Ulu camp, the tribe was really feeling great after remaining undefeated in challenges, despite starting off as a chaotic tribe. Russell remarks that this kumbaya will not last and as soon as that bubble bursts... all that bottled up chaos will break this tribe just as easily. Abi tells Courtney that Brad now has an Extra Vote advantage, which along with Courtney's 50/50 amulet, gives them a lot of power in their tribe, but of course they want to keep these advantages around for a while longer, so they talk to Michaela and Shii Ann if they are still willing to blindside Spencer, both of them consider it but would rather wait until they do arrive at tribal council. Michaela does want to get rid of Spencer as soon as she can, as she sees him as untrustworthy and but sees no need to need to do so until they lose immunity. Later on Erik and Spencer talk at the beach, and talk about how weirdly peaceful it is in their tribe, thinking that Abi and Courtney were too calm right now. Spencer tells him he's suspicious of them too and suspects that the rumor about him came from them, but he hasn't heard anything since then, so maybe they had a change of plans or something, nevertheless, they still have a majority five, six if they can get Brad on board, they can easily take the two of them out. But for now they should focus on being a stronger tribe and winning more challenges.


(We'll speed things up a bit. Reward Challenge later today!!)

DS-TC: Reward Challenge (Day 8)


Challenge: Muddy Waters


Ulu, Loto, taking your first look at the new Tino tribe, Danielle voted out at the last Tribal Council. Alright, are you ready to get to today's reward challenge? For today's challenge:


One person from each tribe must go through an a series of obstacles, a balance beam, then over an A-Frame, and then slide into a mud pit, where you must find a bag of balls, you must then crawl through the rice, drop your bag at the finish mat, then the next person goes. Once you collected all six bags, you will shoot those balls into a basket. First two tribes to get all twelve balls in the basket wins reward.


Want to know what you are playing for?


After a long time without proper food, this should be good. For the first tribe to finish; A Barbeque feast, alongside some kitchen supplies to help improve your camp, we have pans, pots, knives, oil, spices, a coffee set and a grill to cook those barbeques on. Second tribe to finish, smaller feast, but you will also get those same kitchen supplies the first tribe will get. Worth playing for?


Alright, Ulu, you have two extra members, Loto you have one. Who are you sitting out? Courtney, Shii Ann and Kass, alright take a seat on the sit out bench. I'll give the rest of you time to strategize, we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/e2navYlw9gB


(The Reward from this challenge will be worth +4 for the First placing Tribe, and then +2 for the Second placing Tribe. As of now the Net challenge advantage count for each tribe are Loto with 0, Tino with +4 and Ulu with +5. The poll ends at 12 am EST. Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Reward Challenge Results (Day 8)


It is Caleb first on the course for Loto, Terry for Tino and Russell for Ulu. Caleb makes quick work of the balance beam, he's climbing over the A-Frame now. Terry and Russell taking it slow and steady on that beam. While Caleb is already on the mud pit, Wow what a performance. Terry's through the balance beam, Russell almost there. Caleb is still looking for a bag. Terry's on the mud pit now, Russell right behind, Caleb's found one, but he keeps looking, Russell on the mud pit now. All three players seems to be implementing a familiar strategy, looking for all the bags so that their other tribemates wont have to spend as much time looking for them. Great Strategy, it won Penner and Malcolm this challenge before, but now all three tribes are utilizing it, so will it make any difference?


Caleb's got all of it, he's off to the rice crawl. You're good! It is now Brenda next for Loto, makes quick work of the balance beam. Russell and Terry still looking for those bags, you have six in total. Brenda's on the pit, she grabs her bag and moves on. Terry's found all six bags, he's moving on. Russell still in there. Brenda's good, Lex is next for Loto. Terry's good, Woo up next for Tino. Russell struggling to find that last bag, Ulu is officially behind in a challenge. Woo makes quick work of the balance beam and the a-frame, catches up to Lex who is get on the mud pit at the same time. Russell finds that last bag, he's off! All three players now at the same part of the challenge. And all three are good! It is now Spencer, Eliza, and Tasha on the course. Spencer gets across that beam, he's off to the A frame, the other two slowing down. Spencer now on the pit, he's making up time, but will that be enough, here comes Tasha and Eliza on the A Frame, Spencer's through the rice crawl. Go Ulu! Michaela's next, makes quick work of the balance beam, Tasha and Eliza both at the rice crawl, Michaela's now at the A Frame. Tasha's good. Keith is next. Eliza's good, Fishbach's next. Michaela almost there, she's good. Abi now on the course.


As of now Loto is in the lead with four bags, Fishbach's looking to make that five, while Ulu and Tino both have three. Fishbach's good. Abi's good. Keith is still at the mud pit. Corinne last up for Loto. Brad next for Ulu. Both make it through the balance beam. Keith struggling to get through the rice crawl, Brad is about to catch up to him. Brad is good. Followed by Keith. Erik last on the course for Ulu. Corinne is through. Loto can now start opening the bags, once you have all 12 balls, you can start shooting. Rob is through the balance beam. Erik is now at the mud pit. Loto is now shooting, Caleb scores one, Lex scores another one. Loto is extending their lead. But Erik is now through the course, Ulu can start shooting. Rob at the rice crawl, but Tino still has one more person to go before before they can move on. Rob is good. Go Laura!


Loto now has 3 balls, make that 4. Now Ulu is in on it, they score 1. Laura still on the A frame, trying to catch up to the other tribes. Loto has 6 now, Ulu has 3, Tino yet to even begin. Loto scores their 7th, Ulu get's their 4th, make that 5. Laura's now through the rice crawl. Tino can now start shooting, but they have a lot of ground to make up. Loto has 8 balls now, 9, 10! They have two left! Ulu has 6 balls, they can still catch up. Barbeque feast on the line, you want this reward. Ulu has 7 balls now. Tino now shooting, get 2 balls immediately, they are still in it! Loto lands their 11th, they have 1 more... Lex for the win... just short. Ulu can still get it, they have their 9th ball, three more. Tino has their 4th ball. Caleb scores the final ball for Loto, Loto wins Reward!! We're looking for one more. It is Ulu with 9 balls, Tino with 5. Who will get to twelve first? Ulu gets their 10th, Tino gets their 6th, make that 7. Tino is catching up but Ulu lands their 11th, they have one more... Brad gets it!! Ulu wins Reward!!


Alright, Loto, well done. Huge barbeque feast waiting for you back at camp, you also get these kitchen supplies for your camp, come grab it and head out, enjoy your feast. Ulu, second place ain't bad, you still get a smaller feast, and those same kitchen supplies, come grab it and head out. Tino, great effort but you came up short. I've got nothing for you, grab your stuff, head back to camp.


(Wow... now the Net Challenge advantage points are Loto: 0, Tino: 0, Ulu +3. This is the closest we've ever been. This should make for an interesting immunity challenge.)

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 8)


The Loto tribe arrived back at camp and saw an abundance of food waiting for them. Ribs, Briskets, Kebabs, Chicken, even some vegetables on the side. After seven long days without eating much of anything, this was a lot. They immediately dug into the feast and enjoyed themselves. After their meal, the tribe remarked their winning streak and vowed to keep it going. However, at the back of their minds, they know they should be prepared for anything. Kass and Lex brought in Eliza, Corinne and Brenda, and see if they are in agreement to blindside Fishbach instead of voting out Caleb, as his challenge strength has proven to be worthy asset for the tribe. Eliza is down for it, Corinne needed a bit of time to think about it, but Brenda pretended to nod along and knew at the back of her mind, she needs Fishbach to stay in this game, because his Amulet advantage would be too powerful to throw away. So she comes to talk to him, warning him that Kass is now after him. They decide to loop in Caleb, and they plan a counter attack on Kass, while either hoping that they can convince them to split their votes to make it a 3-2-2, or have Corinne flip and make a majority four.


At the Ulu camp, they arrive to see a platter of assorted raw meat waiting for them, their reward was in fact smaller, but it's still better than nothing, so they set up their new grill and started cooking. After eating, the tribe decided to break off. Spencer is growing ever worried about Courtney and Abi, who he fears has become "stable". So, he gathers his majority group of himself, Erik, Michaela, Shii Ann and Russell, which was formed on Day 2 while their tribe was still being dysfunctional. To see if they are still good, even with the winning streak and functionality they've had. All of them say that they are, and in the event that they do lose, Abi or Courtney would definitely be the first to go as they are the weak links of this honestly strong tribe. This scrambling of Spencer is exactly why Michaela was worried of him, as he does have a capacity to get paranoid and make wrong moves, she's been there before and she wants to get rid of him as soon as she can, but she also wants to keep winning challenge, and she does know how crazy those two girls can get, so right now she's considering her options and waiting for when they do lose immunity. Meanwhile Shii Ann and Erik decide to go to the water well for a while, as they both remark the collision course that the tribe are about to crash on. They can sense that the tension is very tense, and the moment they enter tribal council is when everything will explode, and the two of them want to see themselves as safe. So while everyone else in at the shelter resting after their meal, they go into the jungle to look for that idol, while searching, Shii Ann remarks that she is in a great position in the tribe, as it seems that everyone trusts her, and wants to work with her, she originally thought that she would have to stir up trouble for this to happen, but it all worked out just fine. But it was about to get better, eventually she and Erik stumbled upon a series of bushes and spotted something green. Shii Ann grabbed it, and both of them scurried off to a more secluded spot, and opened it up it. It was a hidden immunity idol, one that had to be shared with some one, and with the two of them already being there, they decide to share with each other, and ultimately have Shii Ann hang on to it. With a lot of sway in the tribe, and now an idol at her disposal, Shii Ann smiles as she now wants this tribe to crash into tribal sooner than later.


At the Tino camp, the tribe was just further exhausted from the challenge, they were already tired from tribal council yesterday, and the scrambling and idol hunting that came after it. That was probably a reason why they lost, and so they decide to cook up some rice and get a good day's rest, cuz they'll need it for immunity tomorrow. But that did not stop Rob and Tasha from sneaking off, to split people and pitch some ideas to them. Soon, the others notice and everyone but Keith who stay to look after the rice, the others left to go find them, and maybe stop them from finding another idol. Laura soon spots them at the water well, and they tell her that they were just getting water, and talking, particularly about Keith's challenge performance being lackluster than it was before, and maybe he's the reason why they've losing challenges, Laura hears the idea out, and she agrees that Keith should go some time soon if they lose immunity, because they have to stop losing at some point, but she also does see Rob and Tasha as untrustworthy, strategic threats, and she is unsure if either plan will be beneficial to her game, Woo later comes along and joins the conversation, he too agrees on Keith as a challenge liability, but is conflicted as he thinks that Keith is a really likable guy, and he would much rather vote out either Rob or Tasha first. Soon, the four of them soon go back to camp to spend the rest of the day resting up and be ready for tomorrow's challenge.

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 9)


Challenge: Cell Block Sea


Alright, are you ready to get to today's immunity challenge? First things first, I gotta take it back. Once again immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge:


On my go, all six tribe members will race out into the ocean, across a balance beam, to a cage, you'll crawl up and over the cage, where you will then untie a very long and very heavy Snake. You'll push it back up over the cage, carry it through the balance beam and race to shore. You will then untie number tiles, which you will use to open a combination lock, which will release a set of rings. First two tribes to land all five rings on the targets, wins immunity.


Loto, you have one extra member, Ulu, you have two. You have to sit somebody out, it cannot be Kass, Courtney or Shii Ann. Who will it be? Abi, Erik and Eliza, take a seat at the sit out bench. I'll give the rest of you a minute to strategize, we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/e7ZJO5m9vy3


(The Tribal Challenge advantages are as follows, Loto and Tino both at 0, with Ulu at a tiny lead with +3. This should be interesting.... let's see how it goes. The poll ends in 6 hours, 12 am EST, good luck!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 9)


All three tribes are off. Everyone's on the balance beam now, you can't go over the cage until everybody's there, Caleb is through, Brad is through, Woo is through, waiting for everyone else. We are neck and neck in this challenge, Everyone's in the water, get to your cage! You are only as fast as your slowest swimmer. Ulu now lagging behind, but they are right behind. Go Tino! Go Loto! You can start climbing over the cage now. Courtney's now there for Ulu, go Ulu! Once everybody is in you must start untying that snake. Tino sending multiple people down at once, making great progress. Loto seems to be slowing down. Ulu just got inside the cage. Tino's got the snake untied, they can start carrying it out. Both Brad and Caleb know how heavy that snake is, they participated in this challenge before in Game Changers, but does Tino know anything? Tino struggling to get that snake up, giving the other tribes a chance to catch up. Ulu's got their snake. Loto's got their snake. Get it out of there now. Tino is struggling, but it looks like the other tribes are struggling just as much, it will take everybody's effort to get that snake over that cage. Tino making slow but steady progress. While Caleb and Brad are leading their respective tribes. Tino has the snake free, they're now in the lead. But Loto and Ulu are not that far behind, they're making progress. Tino now back at the balance beam, remember if one of you falls, they have to get back up before you can move, it is all about teamwork in this part of the challenge. Ulu's got their snake free, they're good. Loto right behind, they're good. Tino making great progress in the balance beam, but here comes the other tribes. Tino's through, now put it in it's cradle and start looking for those number tiles. Loto and Ulu are neck and neck at that balance beam. Tino's got all three number tiles, now they have to put it in the combination lock. Rob's got it first try! Tino can start tossing rings!! Here comes Ulu and Loto, still neck and neck.


It is Terry tossing rings for Tino. While Ulu has found all three tiles, they're working on the combination lock. Terry lands the first ring for Tino! Loto's got their tiles. Ulu's released their rings, they can start tossing. Fishbach working on the combination lock, gets it wrong. Spencer's on the ring toss for Ulu. Terry lands a second ring, you have five rings in total. Fishbach's got it for Loto. They can now start tossing rings. Terry, Spencer, Caleb, now all on the ring toss. Spencer lands one, Caleb lands one, Spencer lands another one, Terry lands their third, Tino's got two more. Caleb lands a second ring. This challenge is very close. Spencer's got three for Ulu, Terry has for four for Tino, they've got one more! Terry for the win... just misses. Caleb lands the third for Loto, Spencer has their fourth, they have one more! Terry, in and out!! Caleb lands the fourth for Loto! And just like that we are tied four each, with one left with immunity on the line! Who will get it first? Spencer does it!! Ulu wins immunity!! We're looking for one more... and Terry lands it for Tino! Tino wins immunity!! Sending Loto to tribal council!!


Alright, Ulu... keeping the streak up, six challenges in a row, congrats, you have won immunity once again, no one going home tonight, the tribe remains intact. Tino, great job, had a lead but still won it, immunity is yours as well. Loto, great effort, but sadly you came up short. I will be seeing you tonight at Tribal Council where somebody will be the fourth person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be, grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.

DS-TC: Loto Camp (Day 9)


The tribe returned to their camp feeling very disappointed that they came so close in the challenge, but still came out short. And now they have to vote somebody out, which is never a good thing. After quickly setting their campfire lit again. Everyone went off to strategize for tonight's tribal council.


Kass, Lex, Eliza, Corrine and Brenda met up, to discuss if they are in agreement to spare Caleb tonight to keep his challenge strength, and to blindside Fishbach, who is a strategic threat, has an advantage, and has friends on the other tribes to possibly flip to in the future. Brenda is not too keen on the idea, and has a plan of her own. She puts the idea out there that Fishbach could use his advantage to save himself, and proposes the idea to split their votes between him and Caleb, in case he uses his advantage. Everyone agrees, but they set their eyes on firmly on him.


This is what Brenda wants, as she plans to form a 3-2-2 plurality, with herself, Fishbach and Caleb voting for and blindsiding Kass. However, she is not too sure on how the vote will be split, and sets out a plan B; Corinne. She talks to her, in hopes into getting her to flip and make a majority four. Corinne considers the idea, as she does see Kass as a threat. She then goes to talk to Eliza, and see what she thinks as they are working together, but Eliza quickly gets paranoid and tattles to Kass about it.


Kass was expecting her name to up at some point, but she didn't expect Brenda to be the source. And so she prepares a counter attack, as she gets Lex to ready up his idol in case they needed it, but also gets Corinne and Eliza to switch their plan to Brenda instead of Fishbach, as she is just as much of a strategic threat as him. Corinne and Eliza consider the change of plans, but are genuinely stumped on what to do, as they both really like Brenda and want to work with her, and so they have to consider what they are going to do tonight, and what are the repercussions of it.


(Tribal will be in 8 hours, 6:00 pm EST... Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #4 (Day 9)


After a rough first few days into the game, barring several challenge losses and voting out a member, the Loto tribe found themselves divided, with Caleb, now at the bottom of the tribe. However, after performing well in challenges and gaining a small win streak, Kass and Lex decided that it would be better if they kept Caleb around and set their eyes into blindsiding Fishbach, a great strategic threat, now armed with an advantage.


They came close in winning immunity but fell short, now Kass gathered her troops in Lex, Corinne, Eliza and Brenda to blindside Fishbach. Everyone agreed, but not Brenda, who knows about the full power of Fishbach's advantage and wants to keep him around a piece of it someday. So she comes up with a plan to get the majority to split their votes between Caleb and Fishbach, while she gets the two of them to blindside Kass in a 3-2-2 plurality. However, she remained unsure about the nature of the split vote, and sought a backup plan, in hopes that Corinne would flip and join them as a majority four.


But Corinne told Eliza, who told Kass, and she prepared for chaos, as she told Lex to ready his idol, and for switch their plan to blindside Brenda instead. However, Corinne and Eliza weren't too sure about this and spent the afternoon weighing out their options and making the best decision for their game tonight.


This is going to be a fun night, let's see how fun it will be.


It is time to vote:

DS-TC: Tribal Council #4 Results (Day 9)


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.

First vote, Kass


Kass (that's two votes Kass)


Brenda (that's one vote Brenda, two votes Kass)


Brenda (we're tied, two votes Brenda, two votes Kass)


Kass (that's three votes Kass, two votes Brenda)

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


With all the talks of keeping the tribe strong, we can only wait and see if this vote made it happen, if not your torch could be next. Grab your torches, head back to camp, good night.

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 10)


Challenge: Rice Race


Ulu, Tino, taking your first look at the new Loto tribe, Brenda voted out at the last Tribal Council. Are you ready to get to today's immunity challenge? First things first, I gotta take it back. Once again immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge:


On my go, four players from each tribe are going to swim out to a boat to grab three heavy bags of rice. You will then work together to get those bags through a hole, over the obstacles, and back to shore. Where you will open them up and pour the rice on a giant bucket, which will drop a ball. The last two tribe members will then work together to maneuver that ball, through a vertical table maze. The first tribe, and Only the First Tribe to finish, wins immunity.


Both of the losing tribes will have to go to tribal council separately, both tribes will have to vote somebody out. Very Big Stakes.


Alright, Ulu, you have two extra members, you have to sit somebody out, who will it be? Courtney and Abi, take a seat at the sit out bench. I'll give the rest of you a minute to strategize, we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/bVg869NK3yY


(Sorry for not having anything for two days, I just had some important things to attend to in real life, but Dream Season is back, and we're having a double elimination twist! I know there isn't a Camp Life post yet, particularly for Loto's post-tribal. But the dynamics are the same for Ulu and Tino, and I will still post what "happened" to Loto in tomorrow's strategy post, regardless if they win or lose. But with that being said, tribal challenge advantages are the same, the vertical table maze is the same as Cagayan's final 16 challenge (the one the Brains tribe won 😉) and I'll give you guys 8 hours on this challenge, instead of just 6, to talk and strategize in the comments. So this poll will end 2:00 am EST. Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 10)


On the Maze, Kass and Fishbach for Loto, Spencer and Shii Ann for Ulu, Tasha and Woo for Tino, everyone else is in position... Go! Everyone's in the water, swim out to that boat. Only one person can get on that boat to distribute the bags. Brad first in for Ulu, Terry's in for Tino, Caleb's in for Loto, we are neck and neck right now. Ulu at an early lead, but not by much, Loto is on the move, right behind them is Tino, you can see the determination of everyone, only one tribe is winning immunity, the other two have to vote somebody out, they do not want it to be them. Brad and Michaela at their gate, they're shoving their first bag in. Here comes Caleb and Lex for Loto. Michaela going up and over now. Terry's at Tino's gate, he's going over. Michaela's pulling their bag on the other side, she gets it. Terry is doing the same thing he gets it, now Caleb and Corinne are going over. Ulu's got all their bags through, now they just have to go over and bring those bags to shore! Loto's got their bags through, they can move on! Tino has fallen behind but not by much, they got all three bags now. Everyone's on their way back to shore!


Ulu is now opening their bags, you have to pour the rice in the bucket so that the ball will drop. Loto and Tino now both back to shore as well, you must get all three bags on that table before you can start opening them. Ulu's pours in their last bag, they got their ball! Spencer and Shii Ann can now start the maze. Loto and Tino are just pouring their first bags, but they can still catch up. Spencer is very familiar with this maze, it is the same maze that the Brain Tribe conquered and won their only challenge, but now Kass, Tasha and Woo are on the other tribes doing the same maze, they all won this challenge before, can they do it again? Loto's got their ball. Tino's got their ball. Everyone's in the maze now. Ulu's got a bit of a lead, but as we saw in the last time, this maze is a difficult one to maneuver, both Loto and Tino can clutch this win for their tribe, and with only one immunity available, you know you want it. Woo and Tasha working well together. Kass and Fishbach right there. Spencer and Shii Ann had a lot of time to work on it, and their ball is now on the move, a great move by Ulu! Loto is now struggling. Tino inching closer to that goal. Ulu makes another move, and that will do it!! Ulu wins immunity!! Sending Tino and Loto back to Tribal Council!!


Ulu, even when there is only one spot in the finish mat, you still remain undefeated. Immunity is yours, the tribe stays intact, no one going home tonight, grab your stuff, head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Loto, Tino, I've got nothing for you but a date with me at Tribal Council, where somebody will be the fifth and sixth person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be. Tino, I'll be seeing you in Tribal first, Loto will quickly follow after. I'll see you both later tonight, grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 10)


The Ulu tribe returned to their camp very delighted about keeping their win streak up and still not going to tribal council. They are even more happy about their win, because after tonight there would only be 18 people left, and 8 of those people are Ulu. However, everyone in this tribe knows that this tribe is dysfunctional at it's core, and it is only a matter of time when it blows up. But it will definitely not be tonight, so they will have to wait another day.


The Tino tribe were upset by their lost, as they all dread having to go to Tribal Council, specially three separate times in the first 10 days. Now, they have to say goodbye to another member this early into the game. The majority alliance of Terry, Woo, Laura and Keith grouped up and discussed how the hell they were going to vote out Rob and Tasha, who at this point managed to idol out their strategic head; Danielle, and they fear that that they are about to do it again, they consider splitting their votes but fear that a 3-2-1 might happen, but if they don't split their votes then, somebody could be idoled out once again, Woo could also use his vote blocker, but they know that they'll need it sometime else in the future. They decide that the best course of action is to try to get Rob and Tasha to turn and vote against each other tonight.


Rob and Tasha knew that they needed to play hard in this tribe, and with the idol not being found yet, they know that they'll need to resort to a good ol fashioned social manipulation. They were laying out the groundwork to vote off Keith, who they deem as a strategic liability and too likable to keep around. They have pitched the idea to Woo and Laura a few days ago, now they went off to confirm if they were still good with that pitch. Tasha approached Laura and then Rob approached Woo, both sides wanting to manipulate the other the way they want them to go.


Meanwhile, Terry was regretting letting Danielle be voted out, and spent the last few days searching for the idol to keep himself and his alliance safe, but with no news about it's location, he fears that someone has already found it. But he decides to keep looking, in the slight chance that it was still out there and he can save another friend in this game. He did not regret leaving the game for his son, but he did regret not playing this game hard in his previous seasons, and now promises to fight until the bitter end. And at the end of a path, there it was, underneath a tree stump. An orange packaging, that was an Hidden Immunity Idol, it has been 17 years since he found his last idol, he is sure to actually use this one. He had to share it with someone before sundown, and he knew just the person, Woo had already revealed his Vote blocker to him, and this will just make things even between them. Woo then told him about Rob and Tasha's plans, and asked him if he is willing to use his idol on Keith or try and go ahead with their original plan, or leave Keith behind and save their advantages for another time. Either way, they need to figure it out tonight.


The Loto tribe were extremely exhausted after the challenge, as everyone was still trying to comprehend what just happened in yesterday's tribal, but now they have to go to another, and it has hasn't even been a full 24 hours since the last one. Although many of them were tired, they all still decide to go out and strategize. Kass gathered her alliance with Lex, Eliza and Corinne, and they agreed to keep things simple tonight and split their votes between Fishbach and Caleb, and hopefully flush the amulet in the process. Meanwhile both Caleb and Fishbach were now firmly in the bottom of the tribe and without time to do some damage control after the last vote, they both knew that its one of them tonight, but they definitely not going to go down without a fight.


They knew that there were cracks in that alliance to be exploited, and that they need to split their votes tonight to get around the amulet. So they attempt to try and do a 3-2-1, but looking at how their alliance is divided in two pairs; Kass and Lex, and then Corinne and Eliza, it may have to be a 4-2, which will be more difficult to achieve. They first approach Corinne and Eliza, who they were supposedly aligned with in the previous vote, to take another shot at Kass. The women, considered the idea, as they both sense Kass is more chaotic than she's ever been, willing to flip on Brenda just like that, and fearing that one of them is next, so maybe tonight is a good time to take that shot.


But Fishbach, decided to double down, and went to Kass and Lex as well in hopes that they would consider the idea of flipping on the other pair, he talks to them out in the open, by the beach, that Eliza or Corinne may see and get paranoid enough to actually flip on them instead. But he still went to discuss some strategy to Kass and Lex in the slight chance they actually want to work with him, he proposes an Eliza blindside due to her tendency to get paranoid and cause trouble for their alliance, and then a have tight tribe of five, where he can offer his brains, and amulet to use in the future, Caleb can help win challenges, and Corinne can be a good number to have, but disposable if they ever have to go back to tribal. Kass likes the idea, but she knows that Fishbach is too big of a strategic threat to keep around, but at the same time, she knows that he can get too smart for his own good and flame out all on his own. But regardless of what is going to happen tonight, she knows she herself has to be smart about it.


(Two Tribals. Two people to be voted out. Tino's Tribal will go first, tomorrow at 6:00 pm. Then Loto's Tribal will be in the next day at the same time. Good Luck!!)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #5 (Day 10)


After finding themselves in a few tribal councils, an alliance between Terry, Woo, Danielle, Laura and Keith was formed, leaving Rob, Monica and Tasha at the bottom for their strategic threat levels. Monica was quickly picked off, but Rob and Tasha weren't going down so easily and used their advantages to Idol out Danielle, the majority's strategic head.


Now following a Double Elimination Twist, the tribe has to go back to tribal, with the majority worried about what else could the outsiders could pull off, they decide to get them to turn on each other, but Rob and Tasha already had their eyes set on Keith, pitching the idea to Woo and Laura. But Terry managed to find the rehidden idol and considers using it to help his alliance stay intact.


Will Rob and Tasha squeak by for another Tribal? or is it time for one of them to go?

DS-TC: Tribal Council #5 Results (Day 10)


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.



Rob: Here's hoping that luck is on my side tonight. This is for me.


This is an Advantage Amulet, it has the power of a 50/50 coin. I have it right here. So, Rob. If this lands on Safe, you have immunity, all votes cast against you will not count. If it lands on Not Safe, you are vulnerable, any votes cast against you will still count.


It's Not Safe. Unfortunately, any votes cast against you will still count. You can go back to your seat, I'll go read the votes.


First vote, Tasha.


Keith (that's one vote Keith, one vote Tasha)


Tasha (that's two votes Tasha, one vote Keith)


Keith (we're tied. two votes Keith, two votes Tasha)


Tasha (that's three votes Tasha, two votes Keith, one vote left)


The fifth person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance; Tasha.


That's 4, that is enough, you need to bring me your torch.


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


Well, this tribe has always been a lively one, now you are down to five, and still have a lot of game left. Let's see if you can pick things up from here. Grab your torches, head back to camp. We'll bring in the next group.

DS-TC: Tribal Council #6 (Day 10)


After blindsiding Brenda at their previous Tribal Council, the Loto Tribe found themselves right back to Tribal Council to vote another person out. The aftermath of the previous two tribals revealed a strong majority alliance consisting of two pairs, Kass and Lex, and Corinne and Eliza. With Fishbach and Caleb finding themselves on the bottom. The majority agreed to keep it simple, and just split their votes between the two, prioritizing Fishbach for being a strategic threat.


But he was not going to go down easily, he took Caleb and approached Corinne and Eliza about taking a shot against Kass while they can, an offer they really consider fearing Kass may turn on them too. But Fishbach decides to double down, and approached Kass and Lex about blindisiding Eliza for her paranoic tendencies.


Will Fishbach's efforts work out? or will he sleeping with the Fishes tonight?

DS-TC: Tribal Council #6 Results (Day 10)


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.


Fishbach: Yesterday, someone got voted out, today, I hope it is not going to be me. Here.


This is an Advantage Amulet, it has the power of a 50/50 coin. I have it right here. So, Fishbach. If this lands on Safe, you have immunity, all votes cast against you will not count. If it lands on Not Safe, you are vulnerable, any votes cast against you will still count.


It's Not Safe. Unfortunately, any votes cast against you will still count. You can go back to your seat, I'll go read the votes.


First vote, Kass.


Kass. (That's two votes Kass)


Fishbach (that's one vote Fishbach, two votes Kass)


Fishbach (we're tied, two votes Fishbach, two votes Kass)


Fishbach (that's three votes Fishbach, two votes Kass, one vote left)


Kass. We're Tied.


Here is what is going to happen, we are going to have a revote, Kass and Fishbach, you will not vote, your votes cancel each other out. The rest of you can only vote for either Kass or Fishbach. Whoever has the higher amount of votes, will be voted out. If it ends up tied again, we are deadlocked and we will be drawing rocks. Clear?


Come grab the urn:


Caleb: https://strawpoll.com/polls/61gDBexzayw

First vote, Fishbach.


Kass (we're tied, that's one vote Kass, one vote Fishbach)

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


Well, there seems to be more to this tribe than you all think, only time will tell if its good or bad. Grab your torches, head back to camp. Good Night.

DS-TC: Loto, Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 11)


The Loto tribe returned from tribal council, all feeling irritated in some degree. Caleb is irritated that his only real ally Fishbach is gone and he's now all alone. Corinne is irritated at herself for voting against Kass after fearing Fishbach may successfully play his advantage, and Kass, Lex and especially Eliza were all irritated at Corinne for "indirectly" flipping against them, Corinne tried to explain herself, but the damage has been done. Eliza is furious at Corinne for doing that, badmouthing her for voting the wrong way, now also fearing that Kass and Lex are going after Corinne next, putting herself in jeopardy too, and if this tribe doesn't get their crap together in challenges, they are both going home soon enough. Corinne understands the impact her mistake has made, and makes up with Eliza, but her words have severely damage her perception of working with her moving forward. Now in a precarious position, Corinne decides to get Eliza and Caleb on the same side as her to vote off Kass or Lex next time, but she also decides to do some damage control with Kass and Lex to widen her options. Kass and Lex decide to forgive her for now, but she's definitely in their radar, and so they talk to Caleb about voting Corinne or Eliza out next, in hopes that he would side with them instead of the other.


The Tino tribe returned from their tribal council, Rob was feeling very disappointed about the result, as he wasted the Amulet and lost the only person willing to work with him in this tribe, now he is up against a strong alliance of four, and with no advantages at all, it's going to be a long battle from here, but he'll see what he can do about it. Meanwhile the other four were celebrating at a distance, now having been able to kneecap Rob into a tight corner with not much he can do about it. Amidst the celebration, Terry whips out his new idol to show trust within their group, which alongside Woo's vote blocker, further improving their mood, now that this alliance of four has two advantages in their disposal and this ultimately bonded the four of them together.


Meanwhile, at Ulu, the tribe feels happy about getting out of that double tribal, but they all know this tribe is a bomb waiting to blow up. But Russell, mostly unaware of the inner tribal dynamics, feels very optimistic about the tribe's performance, and insists to keeping that winning streak going, and walk into merge eight strong, against any combination of Loto and Tino there is. Everyone else is not as amused, as they all know that everyone is waiting to rip each other apart. Brad, Abi and Courtney have formed an alliance from their minority position from general distrust from everyone else in the tribe, with Courtney having a 50/50 Amulet, and Brad having an Extra vote, these three look to put themselves in a position, with or without these advantages. They have planted the seeds on to Michaela to blindside Spencer for being a huge strategic threat, but with their challenge streak going up and up, Michaela wants to keep it going, and that would require keeping Spencer and voting out Courtney or Abi. Shii Ann is also in in the plan, but wants to keep her options open, she has found an Idol together with Erik, and have kept it a secret between them. Erik does want to use it to save Spencer, but the choice is ultimately on her to do so and he trusts her enough to make the right call when the time comes. Meanwhile Spencer is becoming more and more worried about Abi and Courtney for being too quiet, and but after hearing his name come up a few times, he decides to keep quiet too, and puts his trust toward his alliances to ensure that this tribe will keep being strong even when they do inevitably lose at some point.

DS-TC: Tribe Swap! (Day 11)


Ulu, taking your first look at the new Tino tribe, Tasha voted out at their tribal council. Now, you are taking your first look at the new Loto tribe, Fishbach voted out at their tribal council. Alright, shall we get down to it?


Everybody, drop your buffs.


We are switching things up. Alright, I have a basket right here, come grab a buff, keep it hidden until I tell you so. And reveal!


Alright, if you have green go to Ulu, orange go to Tino, Purple Loto is no more.


Let’s take a look at our new tribes.


The New Ulu, we have four original Ulu, Spencer, Michaela, Abi and Erik, three original Loto, Corinne, Eliza and Caleb, and two original Tino, Woo and Terry.


The New Tino, we have a similar make up, four original Ulu, Brad, Russell, Shii Ann and Courtney, three original Tino, Keith, Rob and Laura, and two original Loto, Kass and Lex.


Things are about to get even more interesting.


Nothing else left to do, Grab your stuff, head back to your new camps, get to know your new tribemates.


(There won't be anything up for tomorrow, I'll just let you all settle into these new tribes, and share down below what you think of them and how things will shape up for the rest of the game. I may use a few of your ideas, as the ideas I currently have... may not be enough for this big of a twist. But it is truly a brand new game, I cant wait to see how this all plays out. Thanks for "watching", stay tuned for more.)

DS-TC: Tino and Ulu Camps (Day 11)


The new Tino tribe arrived at their new home, now with the game turning on a classic twist putting new people on the camp, everyone is already feeling tensions sprouting amongst themselves, and they all ought to get ready for war. After a bit of housewarming and greetings to each other, everyone went off to find their place in this new tribe. Brad, Courtney, Russell and Shii Ann all went off by the beach, and despite not trusting each other much in their original tribe, they trust the other players less and they all shared a concern that people may start picking off Ulu members because of their dominance, as they only have four people each in both tribes. These four needed to find a fifth in order to get a simple majority, but they also needed to pretend to be fractured to give the rest an false impression to sway the vote out of their way.


Laura felt swapped screwed over the fact that her alliance of four is now split into two, with both their advantages over at the other tribe, the strategic mastermind Rob is still with her and has fresh new people to work with and she is left with only Keith, the ally that she is least closest to and is one that is difficult to work with in tight strategic situations like this. She decided to take matters into her own hands, she went to her old friend Russell in hopes to be able to slip into a majority position with the old Ulu members. She soon joins them by the beach and to secure her position, she tells them everything that has happened in the old Tino tribe, but carefully weaving in a few lies to protect her overall game, particularly about how Monica was voted out, as she needs to appease Brad right now in order to put herself in a good position for this swapped tribe, but eventually she will make sure that Brad joins her in the pre-jury trip. She lied that Rob spear headed Monica's vote out, in order to get Brad and Ulu to help her take him out for good, and if he still has anything in his pocket, she can get Keith with them, and split their votes 3-3-3 between Rob, and either Kass and Lex who they all deem as strategic threats.


Seeing the group of six wander on the beach talking, the three left at camp all knew exactly what they are talking about. Rob, Kass and Lex all start talking about strategy on how to get themselves out the bottom even with their giant targets. They quickly formed a "Chaos Alliance" as they are about to whip up some chaos into this tribe. They need to pull some people in, and each had someone in mind. Kass was quick to talk to Keith, to try to get him on her side like before. Keith knows how dangerous this game can get, he played in a previous season full of strategic forces, he barely scraped by to the finale, he didn't understand anything, and he still doesn't understand it now, but he at least knows that he needs to keep his options open, if he wants to make it to a third finale. Lex went to talk to Shii Ann, hoping to capitalize on their alliance together back in All-Stars, and despite a bumpy road, the two generally trusted each other because they know that they shouldn't, Lex was happy to work with her again, but Shii Ann is at least entertaining the idea, she liked where she stood at the old Ulu, but she knows that she has to adjust to the new Tino dynamics how ever it is shaping up to be. And then Rob went to Brad, and revealed the truth about Tino's dynamics about how Monica was actually voted out, hoping that his alliance with her at the start can bring Brad over to flip.


Ever since Day 5, Brad has been lamenting his wife's elimination, and really wants revenge on who done it. So with this new information in mind, he is unsure who to believe, one of them is sure to be lying to get him to vote the other, but right now he is very conflicted about this, and turns to Courtney to see what see thinks. Courtney thinks that they're both stupid and it's better if they just vote them both out if they can. They're both trying to manipulate him through his wife, and that's actually quite cruel of them in her standards, and an emotional Brad is actually annoying her, but since she's in an alliance with him, she has to deal with it. So she tells him to chin up and focus on the game and the immunity challenge tomorrow, but even if they do lose, they'll make sure that one of them goes home that night. Brad feels a bit better but it still unsure about what is to come in this new tribe and the game.


At the new Ulu tribe, after new tribe celebrations went down, everyone was quick to go form relationships to see where exactly they were in this new tribe. The former original Ulu members, Erik, Michaela, Spencer and Abi met up and agreed to work together just in case these newcomers are scheming something up. Abi definitely does not trust any of these guys, but infuriately, since she is alone, with both her allies and their advantages are on the other tribe right now, she does not have much options but to work with them. They needed a fifth to secure a majority, but it is looking like that the other people are not as enthused about working with them, as Eliza and Corinne opened up to Terry and Woo about voting out the former Ulu, to prevent them from having all eight members in the merge, of which they all do agree.


But Spencer to wanted to pull in Terry and Woo, as he had realized that four people on this tribe are people from the same tribe last time. Despite not entirely trusting Woo and especially Abi, he felt good enough with Terry to form a "Neo Ta Keo" alliance with them, just to open up discussions and potentially work together in this swap. Abi feels the same way as she doesn't trust Spencer nor Woo, but really likes Terry, and with her unfortunate situation, she wants to keep her options open too. Woo and Terry on the other hand, although not entirely trusting of them, feels like this is perfect for them, as they slowly but surely finding themselves in a prime central position in this new tribe, with everyone wanting to work with them, and having two advantages at their disposal. It's just a matter of figuring out what to do now.


Corinne and Eliza still feels tension against each other from the previous vote, but being put together after a tribe swap meant that they have reluctantly to work together if they want to seek success in this new tribe. They already aligned themselves with Terry and Woo, and with Caleb, that made five which not likely enough. So they elect to bring in Erik, through their connections with him in the Fans vs Favorites seasons. And after telling him a little white lie about what happened to Brenda in their old tribe, how they were "aligned" with her but Kass managed to blindside her. They pitch to him the idea of voting Abi out, as not only their weakest physical member, but also wanting to weaken Kass in the future, as Abi is a solid member in her camp. Erik agrees with everything they were saying and joins in, because he was looking forward with working with Brenda again, but he guesses that this is better for him, specially after this swap mixing things up, he needs to secure a good alliance with all kinds of people.


Meanwhile, Caleb was also working on something. He knows he can't really trust Corinne and Eliza, and so he went to talk to Michaela about working together, and getting rid of the two of them. Michaela likes the idea, as she does want someone to flip and join her and Ulu to form a secure majority. But after seeing Spencer and Abi talking with Terry and Woo, she realizes how fluid this tribe is becoming, maybe she has to be fluid as well. And so she insists that they alongside Abi, Corinne, Eliza and maybe Woo and Terry, blindside Spencer instead for his strategic acumen, and getting rid of him now, wont really hurt the tribe as much, since they have so much strong challenge beasts to go around. Caleb hears the idea out, and agrees to disagree, because he thinks Spencer is a really good challenge asset and he would win challenges with him, than not. But in the end, if they do lose immunity and that's what what the majority wants, then he would rather see him go than himself.


(So this took so long, this is a very long post to make, but here it is. We'll be having the Immunity Challenge tomorrow!!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 12)


Challenge: Free Fallin'


Alright, are you ready to get to your first immunity challenge as new tribes? First things first, I gotta take it back. Once again immunity is back up for grabs, for today's challenge:


One at a time, each tribe member will jump from a 25 foot tower into a net below. Once all tribe members are down, you will untie a very heavy 500 pound crate, and work together to carry that crate over balance beams. After which you will open it up, and then get some rope rungs to complete a rope bridge, which everyone in the tribe must cross to a finish line. First tribe to get all their members on the finish mat, wins immunity.


News tribes, bigger stakes, I'll give you all a minute to strategize, let's get it on!


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/6QnM747BlZe


(First challenge of the swap, let's see how it goes. The poll will close in 6 hours, 12 am EST. Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 12)


This is a very high fall, make sure to keep your arms on your chest and land on your back, last time we did this challenge, they did not do it, somebody got medevac'd, you have been warned... Survivors Ready, Go! Brad first for Tino, Caleb first for Ulu, you gotta get to your mat first before the next person can go. Caleb's there, Go Ulu! Michaela up next. Brad's there, Go Tino! Lex is next. Michaela is good, here comes Terry. Lex is good, now here's Rob jumping. We are neck and neck right now, Terry and Rob on the mat at the same time, here comes Erik and Laura, both of them are going down now. Corrine is now jumping for Ulu, Keith down jumping for Tino. Keith is slowing down, while Corinne is already on the mat go Ulu! Eliza's next. Keith finally out there, go Tino! Shii Ann is next. Ulu has a bit of a lead, but Tino right there. Eliza's through, Woo is next. Shii Ann is there, Kass is next. Woo makes quick work of this part of the challenge, further extending Ulu's lead... Abi's next. Kass is good, here comes Courtney. Abi is making her way to the mat, Spencer is the last person for Ulu. Go! Courtney is almost there, Russell is the last person for Tino. Spencer's good, Ulu can now start untying the crate. Russell is good, Tino can now start untying the crate.


Ulu had a small lead, but Tino managed to just catch up to them, Ulu's got their crate untied, so does Tino. We are really neck and neck right now. That crate is very heavy, adding in having to cross a set of balance beams, is what will make this part of the challenge difficult. That crate has five handles on each side, there are nine of you, you have to figure out how to distribute that weight among you. This requires a ton of coordination. Ulu on the balance beam now, they are taking is slow and steady, one step at a time. Tino on the balance beam now, also taking it slow and steady. This part of the challenge is tricky, the balance beam will opt you to be careful, slow, precise, but the longer you take, that crate will tire you out even more, and if anyone falls, you will have to wait for that person to come back to continue doing this challenge. I can see several people's faces struggling to lift that crate. Both tribes are now halfway through the balance beams, it seems like the slow and steady approach is working, but can everyone hold on and keep going? Ulu has a slight lead, they are inching closer and closer, Tino is just behind them, and Oh! Courtney falls, Tino has to stop until she comes back. While Ulu is inching closer to the end, and there they are!!


Ulu can now open their crate, it is Michaela and Caleb completing the rope bridge, there are 20 rungs total that you have clip on that bridge. Meanwhile Tino is still stuck on the middle of the balance, Courtney is back, but they have lost all momentum. All the while Ulu is extending their lead, Caleb and Michaela working together well, they have a few rungs left. Tino not giving up however, they are inching towards the end of this beam. But will it be enough? As Ulu completes their rope bridge, with people starting to cross it. Tino makes it off the balance beams now, but this challenge is almost over, Ulu has four people left, now three, now two, they've got one left... Ulu!! Wins Immunity!!


Ulu, new tribe, but the same old story, victory for you once again, immunity is yours, no one going home tonight. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Tino, I've nothing for you, but a date with me at tribal council, where somebody will be the seventh person voted out of this game. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.

DS-TC: Tino Camp (Day 12)


The tribe returned to their camp, all particularly scared of what is about happen, as they all fear that it still too soon to be voting somebody out after a critical tribe swap, nevertheless, this is the game they all signed up for. Brad and Russell quickly gathered their majority alliance with Courtney, Shii Ann, Keith and Laura, and they decide to keep things simple tonight and split their votes 3-3 between Rob and Kass, with Lex as their tertiary target if things get heated at tribal.


But Brad was feeling a little ambitious to get revenge on whoever voted out Monica, he has heard different stories from both Rob and Laura and he is furious about being lied to and wants them both out. His alliance is already voting for Rob, so he goes to talk to him, Kass and Lex, with a pitch to vote out Laura, so that the vote may end up tied 3-3-3, and whoever we wants to go, may go in the revote. But he tells them that he can bring Courtney over and make it five, enough to take her down. The three of them are hesitant to take his deal, but agrees to it, since they'll need the option to do so. Brad then considers using his extra vote tonight, which will only have power for only five more rounds, as it could really ensure he can get his way tonight.


However Kass and Lex are not really too keen on working with Brad, seeing him as untrustworthy based of his previous games. They would rather get rid of him than Laura as he is the bigger threat, physically and strategically, being perceived as original Ulu's leader, and fearing that not getting of an Ulu now, will give them even more power by the merge, and by getting rid of their leader will shake their dynamics up dramatically. So they made their move, and ratted him out to Laura, who is not surprised that her lie did not work, as she assumed it was only time before he knew the truth, and so she agreed to help them but she is concerned that flipping would only damage her game, and so she elects to not have blood on her hands, by revealing to them that the majority was splitting their votes, and if they can get one person to flip, it could become a 4-3-2 plurality.


They then decide to loop in a few more people, Kass will try to bring in Keith, while Lex will try to bring in Shii Ann, who now believes now that the majority has split and she needs a spot in the new majority. So she elects to join, as she is feeling a little cocky with her idol, and she would rather take Brad out now who she actually never trusted since day 1. But she is concern about how her allies on the other tribe would react, so she keeps her wits open for consequences as she and the tribe arrives to Tribal Council.


(Quite an Interesting vote we have here, 5 people up for elimination, 9 people voting, 4 advantages in play... and this will set things up for now the post-swap can turn out. Let's see how it goes! Tribal Council is in 8 hours, 6:00 pm EST. Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #7 (Day 12)


The tribe swap put everyone's games in a peculiar spot as they face new competitors among them. The new Tino tribe, found themselves divided with a six person majority with former Ulu and Tino members, Brad, Courtney, Russell, Shii Ann, Laura and Keith wanting to split their between the strategic outsiders, Rob and Kass, and Lex for good measure.


However, both Laura and Rob had been telling Brad their own stories about how his wife Monica was voted out from their tribe, making Brad conflicted on who to believe. He then decides to just get rid of both of them, using the majority split vote, and gathering the outsiders to ensure they both receive votes, and in a revote or if an advantage is played, either one will go home.


But Kass and Lex, would rather take Brad out instead, seeing him as a key figure in the Ulu dynamics, and elects Laura to join them, but she would rather remain in the good graces of the majority, and tells them to just make it a 4-3-2. So they then bring in Keith and/or Shii Ann to see if they would want to do that move.


So many things are at stake tonight, let's see how it goes.


It is time to vote:

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


This tribe swap gave birth to a brand new game. It's best for you to keep up with it, if not, you might be next. Grab your torches, head back to camp, Good Night.

DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 13)


The Tino tribe returned to their camp from tribal council, several members now aggravated from what just happened. Courtney and Russell were absolutely furious that Laura, Keith and Shii Ann flipped, and to take out one of their biggest challenge assets was just another shot at their own tribe's foot. Russell soon talked to Laura about what happened, and she said that it was just a matter of saving her own ass, as Brad was gunning for her, and she did receive votes tonight, so this was necessary to keep herself in the game. But she reassured Russell that they are still an alliance, and they will get Kass, Rob or Lex out next time. Russell still feels furious, but realized that he really had no idea what was going on at all, and he knew he had to step up his game from now on.


But Courtney was absolutely furious about her tribe, their ideocracy for voting Brad out, and now between her and Russell, it's definitely herself going next. Thankfully she has an Ace up her sleeve, her Amulet which can give her a 50-50 shot of getting immunity at a tribal council. And she knows that someone from old Tino and Loto has an amulet too, due to it's unique power, and if she can find whoever has the others, that will make a strong alliance that can save her from this idiotic tribe and hopefully take it all the way to the merge.


At the Ulu tribe, the tribe was still feeling tense despite winning immunity. And it seems like people are still talking to each other, trying to see where they stand in the tribe. Caleb has already informed Corinne and Eliza that Michaela is willing to make a move on Spencer, a move they are intrigued by, as he is such a threat, but they really would rather take out Abi right now, not only to keep the tribe strong, but to weaken Kass along the line, and Spencer is a fine number against Kass. But if it will help get Michaela on board with them, and help them cover up that they are now actually against her, then that will be fine as well.


Meanwhile, Woo and Terry are considering their options, as they have found themselves in the center of the tribe, hearing all sorts of plans from everyone, as well as having a vote blocker and an Idol. And they really need to figure out what to with all this power, they opt to side with Spencer, owing to his "Neo Ta Keo" alliance with them and Abi, in hopes that he could guide them into using these powers in an effective way, they don't tell him anything yet, as Woo is absolutely suspicious of him, but when the time comes they will try to ask him for help, but if they deem his guidance as unhelpful, then they can just blindside him instead.

DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 13)


The Tino tribe returned to camp following their defeat from the reward challenge, but they aren't too disappointed about the loss, as they deem Immunity is more important, but a few people start to fear that they may keep losing challenges. Nevertheless, some people begin to strategize, as Kass gathers the voting block she formed with Lex, Laura, Rob, Keith and Shii Ann, discussing that they should all keep working together and simply vote out Courtney next, as she is a huge challenge liability, as well as an number in Ulu's old camp, everyone mostly agreed, as they want to stay physically strong, especially going up against Ulu. But Rob and Laura aren't really too keen on keeping this group together. Both of them really wants to get the other out, Rob sees it as essential to weaken her alliance with Terry and Woo along the line, while Laura sees him as a threat to her alliance's success. Both began gathering the numbers to get it done.


Rob went to Kass and Lex to pitch this idea to blindside Laura instead, although they both aren't too sure as they would rather keep her challenge strength than what Courtney could provide, but they do see Laura as a rising threat, so they decide to keep an eye on her for now. While Laura decides to go to Courtney and Russell about it, although the two of them don't really trust her after what she did, they agreed to do it anyway since they were already on the bottom and they need an olive branch. However, Courtney has her own plan, as while Laura was explaining her pitch to them, she revealed that Rob had an amulet at their old tribe, and now she knows who exactly to go to now to get herself an idol.


The Ulu tribe returned to their camp with a picnic in hand after their win. They found a table and grill set up near their shelter, with even more food for them to enjoy. As they dig in to another victory, one question was stuck in their mind, "what happened to Brad?" they began openly discussing what they think happened, and they reached the conclusion of Loto and Tino banded together against old Ulu. Which had Abi, Spencer, Michaela and Erik worried about what is to come. Abi most especially, as she considers Brad as one of her best allies, as well as having an extra vote, which is really unfortunate, she just hopes that Courtney can find a way to survive that tribe.


Woo and Terry later met up with Eliza, Corinne and Caleb and discussed if they should work together to also pick off former Ulus and they were all in, as many of them were already targeting Abi and/or Spencer, so it wouldn't be much of a change of pace for them. But unfortunately for the three Lotos, they are worried for Michaela and Erik, who they have a working alliance with, and getting rid of an Ulu may sever their relationship with them. Same goes for Terry and Woo who has an alliance with Spencer and Abi. After this bit of thought, they all now know that they have to make sure to keep winning immunity, because once they go to tribal, things will go wild in this camp.


DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 14)


Both tribes wake up to find an Abundance of Bamboo and some rope, at their tree mail, which told them to use it to build a raft good for six people for their next immunity challenge. And the two tribes went off to build it, Ulu went for a methodical approach, but at Tino, Lex just chuckled as he knows exactly what is about to happen.

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 14)


Challenge: Raft Rescue


Alright, are you ready to get to today's immunity challenge? Firsts things first I gotta take it back. Once again, immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge.


You were instructed back at camp to build a raft, two members from each tribe will use that raft to paddle to a series of cages where you will rescue four other tribe members and their keys, once all six of you have made it back to shore, the final two tribe members will then use those keys to reveal and then work together to solve a giant slide puzzle. First tribe to solve it, wins immunity.


Ulu you have one extra member, you sat out Erik last time, who are you sitting out now? Abi, alright, go take a seat at the sit out bench, I'll give the rest of you a minute to strategize we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/PbZqoN1vAnN


(Although the poll is set to end in 6 hours, at 12:00 am EST, I wont be able to announce the winners until a few hours after, because I have something to do tonight, so we'll also be pushing tomorrow's strategy and Tribal Council posts for a few hours from its usual schedule, Thank you for understanding, and Good Luck with this challenge!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 14)


Alright we have our positions, for Tino we have Lex and Russell, rescuing Laura, Keith, Rob and Courtney, Kass and Shii Ann on the puzzle. For Ulu we have Caleb and Terry, rescuing Woo, Michaela, Corinne and Eliza, Spencer and Erik on the puzzle. Here we go, Survivors Ready? Go!!


Both tribes are off! You will have to rescue each tribemate one at a time, not only will you have to be fast, you also have to make sure that the raft you built is able to carry the weight of six tribe members, Tino in an early lead they're on their first platform, Ulu right behind, you have to untie 4 sets of rope to open that cage, Lex has Laura free, they can move on, Caleb still untying, Woo's free, go Ulu! Tino has a bit of a lead, Lex is on the second platform now, trying to free Keith, Ulu slowly making their way to their second platform. Keith is good, Tino is extending their lead, Ulu now at their second platform, both Woo and Caleb trying to free Michaela, they make quick work of it, they're moving on. Tino is at their third platform now, Lex once again untying the ropes, they have a lead, but Ulu is starting to catch up. Ulu now at their third platform, Caleb and Woo working to untie, Rob and Corinne are both free at the same time, we are neck and neck! Both tribes have one platform left, Tino on it first, but Ulu is right there as well, Lex and Rob now untying ropes together, Woo and Caleb do the same, both tribes now have their final member, they can turn their raft around and get back to shore. Courtney is struggling to get on their raft, that is going to cost them some time. Ulu has taken the lead now.


Ulu is now back to shore, they just need to pass the keys to Erik and Spencer so that they can begin the slide puzzle. Tino has fallen behind, but they are not giving up. Erik and Spencer are taking their time to study the puzzle, but they better get a move on because Tino is now passing their keys to their puzzle makers, Kass and Shii Ann wasting no time, Spencer and Erik now pushing pieces around, these are very heavy pieces. Kass and Shii Ann doing the same, it seems like both tribes know what to do for this particular puzzle, its now just a matter of who can get it done first. Both tribes working hard right now, trying to get this done, with immunity in the line, you have to dig deep to push these pieces around. And it seems like Erik is on to something, they have to be correct tho, and they are! Ulu wins immunity!! Sending Tino back to tribal council!


Ulu, I don't know how you keep on doing it, but here you go, immunity once again, nobody going home tonight, congrats. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Tino, I'll be seeing you in tribal council again, somebody will be the eighth person voted out of this game. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.


(Sorry this took long to post, I've had a busy day, but the game continues, and somebody will be voted out tomorrow, stay tuned!)

DS-TC: Tino Camp (Day 14)


The Tino tribe returned to camp utterly exhausted from their third defeat in a row. Now they have to prepare to vote somebody out again, which really sucks for everyone. Kass and Lex gathered everyone in their voting block, which included Rob, Laura, Keith and Shii Ann, and asked if they are good to just vote out Courtney tonight, as she is just too much of a challenge liability, and they fear that keeping her around will doom this tribe even more, many of them agreed, but Rob and Laura both had other plans.


But before Rob could reconfirm his idea to blindside Laura to Kass and Lex, they tell him to be reasonable tonight and just vote Courtney, as they desperately need to keep up with Ulu, and if they don't they'll keep going back to Tribal. Rob privately calls them out in a confessional, for being hypocrites by voting Brad out first, but he decides to put in the back burner for now, for the good of the tribe, but he fears that Laura is gathering numbers as they speak, so they needed to do something about that first.


Laura has already talked to Keith, Russell and Courtney, they all seem to be on board, and only needs Shii Ann's vote to seal the deal. Shii Ann considers the offer, as Rob is a threat in this game, but she wants to remain under the radar for the most part, and getting rid of one of the biggest shields now may be detrimental to her game, but she decides to keep an open mind about it. Later on she and Laura were approached by Lex to see if they are still on board in the Courtney plan, they say they are, but now Lex is hesitating and is unsure if things will go the right way tonight, so he packs up his idol in his bag tonight, just in case.


Courtney knows she's in massive trouble tonight, no doubt in her mind she is catching votes, but she does have a secret weapon, an amulet which give her a 50-50 chance in immunity, but if she can combine it with another amulet, that makes a regular Idol, and she's safe tonight. Since Laura told too much to her in her pitch to vote Rob out, she now knows that he has an amulet. But also knows that he had used it, and it did not give him immunity, so this is all for naught, and she hates him for having wasted it, she knows that there is still a third amulet around in Loto's camp, but she'd rather not ask Kass or Lex about it, as they are leading the charge on her tonight, and she'd rather surprise them right there in Tribal Council. She is very petty at Rob right now for having wasted his amulet, so at the last minute, she talks to Laura and Russell about voting him out, and trusting in her to get it done, showing them her Amulet and her 50/50 chance to negate votes coming her way. Both of them are hesitant, but with everything that is going on, they might as well try.


Laura brings in Keith to the mix, but Keith doesn't really agree as he actually wants to keep the tribe strong and getting rid of Courtney is a really good plan, which he wants to stick to, but it seems like there's a bunch more plans going on and now he's not sure what to do at tribal council.


(Quite an interesting set up we have here... let's see how it goes! Tribal Council later tonight, at 8:00 pm EST, See you then!)

DS-TC: Tribal Council (Day 14)


Following the tribe swap, the new Tino tribe at their first Tribal Council, a voting block was formed between the outsiders Kass, Lex and Rob, and Laura, Keith and Shii Ann, to turn on Brad and voting him out. Leaving Courtney and Russell firmly on the bottom. However a feud between old Tino tribemates Rob and Laura were reaching a breaking point, as the two set their targets on the other.


In the next few challenges, they found themselves in a losing streak, and the majority of the tribe put the blame on to Courtney, their weakest link, and they sought to vote her out to improve their chances of winning challenge in the future. But Rob and Laura have their own plans, but their efforts are being stopped by Kass and Lex who insist that they all just take out Courtney, but nevertheless they keep their plans in the back of their minds.


But Courtney has a secret weapon, her 50/50 immunity amulet. And after learning from Laura about Rob's amulet, she got a little petty against him for having wasted it, so she gathered a small force to work together and vote Rob out once and for all.


Will Courtney's plan work? or will her luck run out tonight? or will something else happen? Let's find out.


It is time to vote:

DS-TC: Tribal Council #8 Results (Day 14)


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.


Courtney: I know ya'll are getting rid of me tonight, but I actually don't want to go home yet, so here you go.


This is an Advantage Amulet, it has the power of a 50/50 coin. I have it right here. So, Courtney. If this lands on Safe, you have immunity, all votes cast against you will not count. If it lands on Not Safe, you are vulnerable, any votes cast against you will still count.


It's Safe. Congratulations, you are Safe tonight, any votes cast against you will not count. You can go back to your seat, I'll go read the votes.


First vote, Courtney (does not count)


Courtney (does not count)


Courtney (does not count)


Laura (that's one vote Laura)


Rob (we're tied, one vote Rob, one vote Laura)


Laura (that's two votes Laura, one vote Rob)


Rob (we're tied again, two votes Rob, two votes Laura, one vote left)


The eighth person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance; Rob.


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


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


This game is truly unpredictable, things can change just like that, nobody is safe. Something to keep in mind as you enter in the next phase of this game. Grab your torches head back to camp, good night.

DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 15)


The Tino tribe returned to their camp after attending tribal council, all having mixed feelings about what just transpired. Courtney was incredibly ecstatic about her plan working out and luck turning in her favor tonight to get Rob out, and she has an overflow of dopamine as she feels on top of the world. Russell feels great as well as he was on the bottom, but now he was able to help turn the tables with pretty badass move. While Laura is especially excited to have finally taken Rob out, and she can't wait to play the rest of this game.


Meanwhile on the other side of the camp, Kass and Lex were feeling utterly outplayed and blindsided which is only made worse by the fact it was done by Courtney of all people. Even Lex regrets having not played his idol for him, and at that moment he really thought that the coin would land Not Safe same as the other two, but things just did not turn out like that. Shii Ann is also distraught as she wants to maintain a subtle game and saw Rob as one of the biggest shields out here, and him leaving is a huge blow, but it is what it is, she still has Lex and Kass in this tribe and an Idol in her back pocket. Although she doesn't entirely trust Courtney, Laura and Russell right now, she knows that she may have to turn on Lex and Kass if the need comes, but she doesn't have to if they can secure a fourth vote; Keith.


Keith was flabbergasted about the vote too, and is now starting to see that this season will be much much more strategic than Cambodia, and so he is actually scared of what is going to happen next. Especially now that it seems like Laura and Courtney are more shady than he gave credit for and he wants to keep an eye on them, but overall this game is crazy and he is prepared for it to go into pandemonium.


At the Ulu tribe, tensions are rising as the tribe falls into a false sense of security after winning challenge after challenge, everyone is paranoid upon what could happen if they suddenly lose immunity or merge with the other tribe. Corinne, Eliza, Terry, Woo and Caleb have formed a contingent against the former Ulus, but they all had underlying alliances with those same Ulu members. Corinne and Eliza had one with Erik with a plan to take out Abi, Caleb had one with Michaela with a plan to take out Spencer, while Terry and Woo have formed an alliance with Spencer and Abi, from their old days from Ta Keo, which they kept at the back pocket.


With all of the these dynamics going on, Terry and Woo found themselves in a powerful middle position with a few advantages as well, but they soon realize that Corinne and Eliza are rivaling them in this position as well. So they set their eyes on to targeting them, as they fear that they also have more numbers than they do, with their capacity to pull in Caleb, and some combination of Ulus to make a majority five. So they revealed to Abi and Spencer the plans to get either of them voted out to put them firmly on their side, and to find a plan to vote out either of the women.


Spencer and Abi are not that surprised that they are being targeted, as they already are back in the original Ulu tribe, but they do not want to go home yet, so reluctantly agreed to work together for now to get them out of this sticky situation, Spencer comes up with a simple plan of making Woo and Terry pretend to still work with them, have the seven split their votes 4-3 between him and Abi, but in reality, the four of them are working to together to make a 4-3-2 plurality. This plan sounded good for everyone, but this also cemented the fact that Spencer is a strategic threat, and may need to go sooner than later. But they'll all have some time to think about it as they get ready for their next challenge.

DS-TC: Reward Challenge (Day 14)


Challenge: Rod Screw-It


Ulu, taking your first look at the new Tino tribe, Rob voted out at the last tribal council. Alright, are you ready to get to today's reward challenge? For today's challenge:


You are all going to leap over a series of tables, and then have to dismantle a large pile of heavy bags, logs and rocks, to reveal a lever, which you will then pull to drop sand bags, you must then work together to bring those sand bags on to the finish, and then throw them at a series of targets, spinning them down and raising a flag. First tribe to raise all three flags wins reward.


Want to know what you are playing for?


Today's reward is a little different, because both tribes, win or lose, are going to have something to eat. You are playing to choose which reward you will get, the losing tribe will be stuck with the other. You can choose between Subsistence, you will go to a restaurant, and enjoy grilled chicken, steak, veggies, pasta, wine and all the fixings. Or you can choose Decadence, you will go to a Café, enjoy a plater of pastries, chocolates, cakes, cookies, ice cream, and all the coffee you can drink. Worth playing for?


Alright, Ulu you have two extra members, you have to sit somebody out, keep in mind it cannot be the same person in back to back challenges, who will it be? Corinne and Abi, alright take a seat at the sit out bench, I'll give the rest of you a minute to strategize... we'll get it on!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/ajnEN2XPBgW


(The double reward is for the new advantages coming in play later... so technically this challenge is for naught, as they will both receive the same number of challenge points, which will cancel each other out. But it is still to determine which tribe will get the "better" initial Advantage than the other, this poll will end at 12:00 am EST. Good Luck!!)

DS-TC: Reward Challenge Results (Day 15)


You have to get up and over those tables, everybody's gotta go. You cannot start the next part of the challenge until everybody's across, Ulu's all across, you're good start dismantling the pile. Courtney last on the tables for Tino, slowing her tribe down. She's there now, you're good. It is Russell, Keith and Laura dismantling the pile for Tino going against Woo, Terry and Michaela for Ulu, these are a lot of heavy debris, that you have to move out of the way, Laura find the lever, but you have to make space to actually pull it. Woo find the lever as well, both tribes now racing to pull that lever first. Tino's got it! Ulu's got it! Now you have you work together to get those sand bags to the finish, the better system you have the faster this is going to go. Tino working together well, Ulu just throwing sand bags at each other. Tino's good, start throwing!


It is Lex throwing for Tino, he hits in his first throw! It will take a few to bring the target down, you have to be precise. But here comes Ulu, and Caleb is throwing, just misses. Lex connects, he's got the first flag raised! Two more, he switches with Russell, but Caleb right there as he raises his first flag. Russell connects, and again and again, he's got the second flag, one left! Caleb is doing his best, trying to catch up, but will it be enough? Russell with another hit, but misses the next, he is very close to winning it for Tino... and he does!! Tino wins reward!!


Tino. You pulled it off, victory is yours for the first time, you will now have a choice which reward you want, the other tribe will get the other. The restaurant, alright Ulu that means you are stuck with the Café, good reward nonetheless. Here's a map to your respective rewards, open it up and head out, enjoy!

DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 15)


The Tino Tribe arrived at their restaurant reward seriously happy about having won a challenge, and getting a very exquisite feast on top of it. They all feel extremely proud of themselves as they propose a toast to keep winning, as they dove into the feast. Although the tribe is feeling on a high right now, things aren't as good as it seems. As Lex remarks that this tribe is divided with Courtney, Russell and Laura on one side, Kass, Shii Ann and himself on the other, and then there's Keith in the middle of everything, who has connections to both sides, and he fears that Keith isn't really the best person to be in this middle position, so he needed to do something about it. He and Kass figured out that there's gotta be a clue or an advantage hidden somewhere in here and they needed to find it before anyone else. But unfortunately they were all in the same room, not really giving them any privacy to go look. So they decided to wait it out, but carefully surveying their surroundings for anything peculiar. Eventually they spot something in the middle of the table, a weird looking vase on top of a hollow wooden platform, everyone else is still seated and eating, so they needed to draw everyone out of there, but no one wants to leave yet, as they all want to enjoy the food for while more, so they had to wait until they actually had to leave. Moments later the time came, and Lex joined everyone as they walk away, making sure that they don't look back, meanwhile Kass stayed behind to lift up that vase platform, and there it was, a small package that read "Beware Advantage", without reading the rest of the text, Kass quickly grabbed it and caught up with the rest of the rest, as to not draw any more suspicion, as she can just open it up back at camp.


The Ulu Tribe also arrived at their Café reward, still glad about winning something despite losing the challenge. Many of them questioned why they got anything at all, especially a reward this big. But nevertheless they still wanted to enjoy it, as they all went to consume as much sugar as they wanted. But things aren't as happy as it seems to be, as their winning streak as put the tribe into a weird kumbaya because they didn't need to vote anyone out yet, but their streak has come to an end and they fear that they can in fact lose immunity at any point and chaos will break lose as the alliances and dynamics are not all clear yet. Abi and Spencer most of all are the most panicked as they very bluntly heard their names come up. Abi dealt with her paranoia in another way (story for another time) but Spencer knew that he needed to find something anything to help his position. But he's not the only one looking for an advantage, as everyone has put together that they are in this reward for a reason, and that reason being there is advantage or clue to be found here. Woo and Terry even recall another possible dilemma, but ultimately, after only a few minutes of trying out the deserts served up, everyone scrambled to find that advantage. And in such a small room, there is not much space for nine people to look around and not see everything, putting the whole tribe in disarray as they kept looking. However, Spencer had already began looking the moment they arrived, and has figured a few spots where it could be, and he used the chaos to sneak a peek at a vase, and he found it, now it's just a matter of how will he get it out of there without anybody knowing, and so he knocked the vase down, and used that as a distraction to quickly nab the package and put it in his pocket. He is incredibly stressed about all this and all he can do now is wait until they come back to camp, so that we can read what is inside this mysterious little thing.


After both tribes have returned to camp, both Kass and Spencer walk away at the first moment they could to open up their new trinket:


Kass: "Congratulations, you have found a Safety without Power Advantage. It will allow you to leave tribal council, granting yourself immunity for that night, but at the cost of not casting a vote, this advantage can be played up until the final 8."


Spencer: "Congratulations, you have found an Idol Nullifier Advantage. It will allow you to nullify the use of an idol for any player that you will use this advantage against, this advantage can be played up until the final 8."


However, by opening this package you have locked yourself into a risky game of chance: Keep It or Steal It.


One person from the other tribe, has found another advantage. And you have an opportunity to steal it. You both will have to make the decision based of nothing but sheer gut.


- If you both decide to Keep It, you will both get to keep your respective advantages.

- If you both decide to Steal It, you will both lose the advantages and they will be discarded from the game.

- If one player decides to Keep It, and the other decides to Steal It, the person who Stole It will get to Steal the other advantage, while the person who Kept It, will lose it and get nothing.


And if you have both Advantages in your hands, you can combine them into something more powerful; A Power Nullifier Advantage, this advantage allows you to block someone from playing any Idols or Advantages or have it be played on them, they will be completely vulnerable and powerless for that one tribal council. This new advantage is now playable up to Final 6.


Make their Decision:

Kass: https://strawpoll.com/polls/poy9RMYK8nJ

Spencer: https://strawpoll.com/polls/61gDBaPdvyw


(Alright, another dilemma, I picked this pair especially for the tension it may lead to, so... it's gonna be good. And now allow me to explain what this New Advantage is, it is based off the new Knowledge is Power from 41 and 42, but instead of stealing the advantage, it is essentially just a preventative tool, that you could use to prevent someone from playing anything, and be vulnerable for one round. Lets take Lex for example, if this is played on him, he cannot play his Idol nor give it to someone and have them play it on him, nor can anybody else use their advantages to save him, he is completely vulnerable for that tribal council, although he still has his vote to cast, and he can still use his social game to turn the votes another way. And if he does... he still has an idol to use for another round. It is a weird new advantage that I am excited to see play out, or not if it's not formed, either way it will still make a lot of interesting game play with two new advantages in play. So stay tuned to see how else this season could turn out!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 16)

Grab your stuff, head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Tino, I'll be seeing you in tribal council once again, somebody will be the ninth person voted out of this game. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.

DS-TC: Tino Camp (Day 16)


The Tino tribe returned to their camp utterly devastated about losing another challenge and having to back again to Tribal Council. Many of them were feeling tired and unresponsive, electing to just stay at the shelter all afternoon. But Kass, Lex and Shii Ann were still able to get up and go to the water well to talk a little bit of strategy. The three of them ultimately decided to put their votes on Courtney, as she is really dragging this tribe down, and that is the easiest way to get Keith on their side. Meanwhile back at the shelter, Laura, Russell and Courtney jump on the opportunity to talk to Keith, they pitch their idea to get rid of Kass tonight, as she and Lex are becoming a power couple and they really need to weaken them before the merge.


Keith hears this all out, and he has heard from the other side as well, and he has become quite uncertain about what to do here exactly, as he had never really been in a swing vote position, and he wants to make sure that whatever he does tonight will be the best for the tribe. However, this indecisiveness is bothering the rest of the tribe, slowly getting paranoid that he may not be on their side tonight, so Shii Ann suggests the idea of blindsiding Keith instead, as he really isn't much better in challenges, and that will also weaken Laura's alleged alliance with Terry and Woo, alongside the fact that she, Lex and Kass are all worried that Courtney or Laura may have another surprise at their back pocket like last time. (Even though all three had immunity giving advantages, Kass had told Lex about her new Safety without Power, but not Shii Ann, and Shii Ann had not told anyone about her idol yet. All three wants to keep their advantages as much as possible.)


But Kass has another idea, she wants to keep Keith around, as a wildcard that can keep causing strategic paranoia like this throughout the merge, so she suggests that they tell the other three to vote for Keith, hope that they aren't going to be on the same page, and the three of them could rule the day and vote off Russell, whom she deem as another integral part of the original Ulu machine, that possibly needs to go now than later. Both Lex and Shii Ann aren't too sure about this, as he seemed to be a good challenge competitor, but they are looking to play a harder game and this will only put them an even better spot later on, but it is a huge risk for them.


Laura, Russell and Courtney all got hear about the new plan to vote off Keith, Russell feels like this is a just as good of a plan, Courtney doesn't really care as long as it aint her, but Laura is really not sure as she fears that there may be repercussions about this plan, and urges Courtney and Russell to stick with their original plan. But Shii Ann decided to try and increase the chances of their risky Russell plan by bringing Courtney on board at the last minute, as she believes that she is the most likely to flip, and telling her that it's really either her or him and she has to make a choice. Courtney doesn't really have a good relationship with him, so she really wouldn't miss him, but he's still a part of her alliance right now, and definitely not part of the contingent that tried to vote her out last time, and she doesn't even know why they are targeting her, as she scored one of their points, but this game is really complicated and she isn't sure if she should trust this Shii Devil on her shoulder.

DS-TC: Tribal Council #9 (Day 16)


The new Tino tribe went through a series of challenge loses, losing both Brad and Rob in massive Tribal Councils. After winning a reward challenge, the tribe thought that their losing streak is over, however they found themselves right back to tribal council. After the previous vote, the tribe became divided with Courtney, Laura and Russell on one side, Kass, Lex and Shii Ann on another, and Keith firmly in the middle.


Both sides needed Keith as a their fourth vote, but his indecisiveness put his game in jeopardy, as Shii Ann rallied everyone to turn against him. However Kass had another idea, blindsiding Russell, to further weaken Ulu's grip in this game. But it comes at a massive risk as the numbers are dwindling, and trust between each tribe member is at an all time low.

DS-TC: Tribal Council #9 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, Keith.


Russell (that's one vote Russell, one vote Keith)


Keith (that's two votes Keith, one vote Russell)


Russell (we're tied, two votes Russell, two votes Keith)


Keith (that's three votes Keith, two votes Russell)


The ninth person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance; Keith.


That's 4, that is enough, you need to bring me your torch.


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


Well, with all the talks of this tribe being divided, you seem to be united in tonight's vote. But will it be enough to go up against Ulu? Only time will tell. Grab your torches, head back to camp, Good Night.

DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 17)


The Tino tribe returned from tribal council feeling burnt out having gone there every time. But after working together to vote off Keith, the tribe still feels tension as the tribe is still split 3-3 and if they don't start winning immunity, they're going to be in a lot more trouble than before. Russell was really surprised that his name came out twice tonight, and asked Kass why she would gun for him, when they were already in agreement to vote Keith out, he gets into a small argument with her, about how she truly is untrustworthy, as she had no reason to gun for him right now, while the rest of the tribe just listened in agony as they just wanted to sleep. Kass knew that in hindsight voting for him would cause tension between them, and she really shouldn't have voted for him tonight, but she is playing a great game right now with a lot of power among her allies, and she is not going to let Russell get in her way like that. The whole tirade kept Lex up all night and he starts to wonder if aligning with Kass was the right play, as she is starting to get cockier and cockier as the game goes on, as she is voting off people left and right, planning blindsides and all that and it's ruffling some feathers and maybe he should start steering away from her.


At the Ulu Camp, after hearing her name come up, Abi grew increasingly paranoid as their tribe kept avoiding tribal councils. But she decided to calm herself down, as she doesn't want to set a fuse in this tribe and draw even more attention and get herself in trouble, but after a while... she couldn't help herself and butted in a conversation Eliza and Corrine were having, thinking that they were plotting against her. Eliza and Corinne were absolutely scared about how Abi has been behaving the past few days, they assumed the worst, and she's about to blow up at them, and Eliza was not just going to take that from her and slowly but surely the three of them began arguing out loud, and led to a full blown confrontation. The rest of the tribe heard them from afar, while Spencer, Woo and Michaela, wanted nothing to do with this, Erik and Terry wanted to smooth things out, eventually getting them to calm down and work it out. But the bomb has been detonated, and Eliza and Abi want each other gone.


Later on in the day, both Tribes received a scroll at their tree mail. Both opened it up and read;


"In a game full of twists and turns, an infamous twist from China returns. Pick 3 players from the other tribe, to now join your own."


Tino was immediately scared of what is about to happen, as Courtney can tell from experience that this swap was indeed terrifying, but now since the numbers are 9-6, the three swapping to Ulu is in the minority, while the three staying here are still tied 3-3, so either way they are screwed. So they really have to wise about who they chose, not only to accompany for challenge strength, but to also see if their previous relationships can help them overcome this twist.


Ulu was also scared, was interpersonal dynamics are still not as smooth as they wish it could be and that could be their downfall during this twist. Which was evident, as there were nine voices talking louder than the other to try get this twist to go in their own benefit. But no matter what happens, they are all going to try their best, as this game is ridiculously evil, and it's just another day in the survivor world.


Choose who is swapping over:


Tino: https://strawpoll.com/polls/40ZmdwLakga

Ulu: https://strawpoll.com/polls/e7ZJOl78My3


(Alright, quite an interesting twist we have here, 9-6 numbers and then 3 people swapping over to each tribe, really an interesting dilemma for you guys. These polls will allow you to vote for 3 different players, the top 3 from each tribe will be swapping over to the other. You have until 9:00 am EST, 12 hours total, to think about it, strategize in the comments, and we'll see how it goes. Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 17)


Following an intricate tribe swap twist, the two tribes were forced to pick three people from the other tribe to join them. Ulu picked Russell, Laura and Lex. While Tino picked Spencer, Caleb, and Michaela.


The Tino tribe welcomed their new members, as they arrive with a small picnic basket, filled with fruits and sandwiches, the new tribe enjoyed it as they engaged in conversations. At first glance the tribe all felt they were in for a mess, as Michaela is greatly displeased about being swapped over, Caleb fears being back with Kass, Courtney feels like they're still not going to win much challenges, the shelter is not looking as good, and the elephant in the room... Kass and Spencer. These two greatly distrust each other, due to their extensive history, Kass even tried to not bring Spencer over, but she was overruled in the discussion. At first, they tried to bury the hatchet again, as they both have a mutual understanding that they should be at their best when they compete in immunity challenges, as they will need it. But they both also have an understanding to not distrust each other in the slightest, and both began rallying troops against the other. Kass genuinely feared her new position, as Lex is gone, and she's not as well connected with Shii Ann and Courtney, but she does hope that her old tribemate Caleb can help her. Caleb does distrust Kass, specially after barely scraping by during their time together at the old Loto camp, but if she's desperate right now, that's great for him. He tells her about his alliance with Michaela and how she's gunning for Spencer ever since the swap, hoping that that will make Kass fall into a fall sense of security and that will be enough to vote her out. While Michaela is pretty pissed about being swapped over, as she fears that a similar Ikabula incident could happen, and could end her game, but looking at this new tribe, it seems like it is all things are really heating up and she just hopes that she's not at the end of it.


Spencer on the other hand reconnected with his old Ulu tribemates to see where they fall in line towards Kass. Courtney and Shii Ann do not really trust each other after everything that has happened, but they decide to work together for now to see where this tribe is headed, and then make a wise decision. Courtney tells Spencer that Kass is very Anti-Ulu, she managed to get Brad out, and then tried to get herself, and then Russell out as well. So it was in their best interest to work together as Ulu alongside Michaela, to preserve their numbers. But Shii Ann isn't really Ulu-Strong, as she wants to keep meat-shields around, to fly under the radar, and she believes that Kass and Spencer are two big forces that is going to be constantly clashing at each other, specially throughout the merge, and so she doesn't really want to get either of them out, and with Michaela and Caleb supplying much needed challenge strength, her only real option is Courtney. She reaches out to both Caleb and Michaela about what they thought of the Kass-Spencer fiasco, and see if they are down to turn the vote to Courtney instead, as to keep their challenge strength up, if they are stuck with each other for a few more rounds. They are both in agreement to vote Courtney out for her apparent weakness, but Michaela disagrees, as she believes that Merge is in the horizon, and Spencer is too big of a physical and strategic threat to keep around, and this is the perfect opportunity to get rid of him, while Caleb rebuts that Kass is too good strategically, has more connections than him, and already has a huge resume on her. All three couldn't really decide, what to do, and so they just hope that this new tribe can pull a win in tomorrow's immunity challenge, and not have to worry about all this.


The Ulu tribe had a conversation before their new members arrive, Eliza pitched the idea of throwing the challenge to get newcomers voted out just like last time, but no one was intrigued, so she laughed it off as a joke, but no one was amused. She thought that this Ulu six was a good group to work with, and with her allies Caleb and Michaela going away, she thought that it was a good idea to throw the newcomers under the bus to save them in the other tribe, but apparently no one wanted to do that and so she begins to suspect that there's something going on with these newcomers, other than being physically strong. Soon, Laura, Lex and Russell arrive, and they also have a picnic basket with them, and the nine of them gleefully enjoyed the food, while having conversations. First impressions were that this is a pretty good tribe, with an abundance of luxuries in their camp and they are excited to work together. But interpersonal dynamics would soon reveal itself, as Laura, Woo and Terry met up at the water well to catch up with each other, Laura immediately revealed how the dynamics are in Tino, and urged that they take Lex out as he and Kass are a powerful pair and they were able to dominate in their old tribe despite being in the bottom, including taking Keith out. Laura also says that she's in good with Russell, and Terry says he can bring in Abi as well, and that will make five, and that already a majority, they can also pick up Erik as well to make a six and split the vote 3-3. As they correctly predict that Lex is going to align back to Corinne and Eliza, whom after all the fighting and scheming that transpired earlier today, Terry and Woo feel less excited about working with them, so any one of them can go.


Meanwhile Lex believes that this swap is a good thing for him, as he fears that Kass is gaining too much traction, and he wants to step off her shadow and play his own game for a while, and this swap was perfect was it allowed him to not sever his relationship with her, and he can still work with her down the line in the merge. But he is very concerned as he got swapped with Laura and Russell, who are already tight in their own right, but after what Rob told him, Laura is also tight with Woo and Terry, and so they already have an In in this tribe, although he does have a connection with Corinne and Eliza, he doesn't quite trust them unlike before, he does still have his idol, but he really wants to save until he absolutely needs it post-merge, so without much choices, he goes and talks with his old tribe mates. And after Erik and Abi left to go somewhere leaving only the three of them left at camp, they figured the worst, and they are now in the bottom of the tribe just like that. Eliza knew something was up and damn was it quick, and they needed to do something about it. Both Eliza and Corinne don't trust Lex either, but without much options, they only really have two choices, turn on Lex and vote him out with the majority, buying them some time. Or try to turn this ship around, by getting Erik to join them and blindside either Abi or Laura in a 4-3-2 split. Corinne pitched the idea to Erik, who is now torn, as he doesn't really want to shake things up and make someone mad, but he does have an alliance with Eliza and Corinne, so either way, he is making somebody mad, with merge and the jury in the horizon, he knows that he has to make moves at some point, but needs to ensure that he wont make such stupid mistakes again. He now just hopes that Ulu can keep their win streak up and they don't have to vote anybody out.


(This is a lot to take in... but the game is even more on. Let's see how these new tribes can outplay each other, Immunity Challenge is tomorrow!!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 18)


Challenge: What-er Drag


Alright, are you ready to get to your first immunity challenge as new tribes? Firsts things first, I gotta take it back, once again immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge:


On my go, one member from each tribe will race across a floating bridge, carrying one end of a piece of rope, when you reach the platform, clip the rope into a large puzzle piece, which resembles a board, and then hang on to it, as the rest of the tribe will crank a giant wench, pulling you and the puzzle pieces back to shore. Once you have collected all five puzzle pieces, two tribe members will unfold those pieces and solve a 5x5 square puzzle.


Ulu, you have three extra members you have to sit three people out, who will it be? Abi, Corinne, Laura. Take a seat on the sit out bench. I'll give the rest of you a minute to strategize, we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/e2navm27lgB


(New tribes, so the challenge advantages are reset, putting both tribes in even chances, but we shall see how this goes. The poll will end at 12:00 am EST, Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 18)


It is Caleb and Woo up first on the bridge, Woo making quick work of that bridge, he's flying through it, but Caleb right behind him, Woo first to the platform, he clips in, Ulu now pulling him in. Caleb's there, Tino pulling him in. Both tribes working together well, both men are back at shore, you gotta get the piece over to the finish mat before the next person can go. Woo's good, go Ulu! Erik on the bridge now, Caleb's good, go Tino! Spencer next on the course. Both are slightly struggling on the bridge, both tribes very even right now, Erik and Spencer both make it to the end, they're clipping in, Ulu really working that wench, they've taken the lead back, but Tino is right there as well. Erik's good, it's Woo back in for Ulu. Spencer's back to shore, Michaela subbing in. Both tribes have two bundles each, this is a close challenge. Woo once again flying through the course, extending Ulu's lead. Michaela still crossing the bridge, while Woo is already being pulled back in, Michaela's got the bundle, she's now being pulled back in. Woo tapping Erik back in for Ulu. Michaela's back, Caleb going again for Tino. Both tribes are tied with three bundles each, but Ulu has a slight lead right now, but will that be enough to win at the end. Erik at the end now, Ulu pulling him back, Caleb right behind, he's made up a lot of time. Erik's subbing in Woo back, these two have alternated on the course and it's working for them, but here comes Caleb tapping in Spencer to go on the bridge. Woo once again making the bridge look easy. But Spencer is right there. Woo coming back now, Spencer just clipping in. Woo returns with their last bundle, Ulu can now start on the puzzle, You have to unfold those bundles first before you can get started. But here comes Spencer with their last bundle, both tribes now working on the puzzle.


It is Spencer and Shii Ann on the puzzle for Tino, these two have worked together well in puzzles in the past, while Eliza and Erik are working on it for Ulu, both have done this challenge before in Micronesia, Eliza's tribe was behind, but she managed to solve this puzzle and won it for her tribe, we'll see which pair can pull this one off. It is a different configuration than last time, so it is slightly more difficult. All four players moving pieces around. Trying to see the bigger picture, how these pieces fit into a square. Kass begins coaching from her vantage point, telling Spencer and Shii Ann what to do, but is she right? Meanwhile Eliza and Erik are stuck, getting no help from their tribemates, they are just moving pieces around, seeing what sticks, but these pieces are heavy, they're only tiring themselves out. Spencer and Shii Ann making a lot of progress, they have one piece left, will it fit? It does!! Tino wins Immunity!! Sending Ulu to Tribal Council!!


Tino, finally this idol has a new camp to call home, Kass I know you want it. Here you go. Congrats, nobody going home tonight. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Ulu, for the first time I'll be seeing you in tribal council, somebody will be the tenth person voted out of this game. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.


(Finally, some Green blood is about to spill, let's see whose will it be. See you back at the camp.)

DS-TC: Ulu Camp (Day 18)


The Ulu tribe returned to their camp, shocked about now having to go to tribal council. With their former immunity win streak keeping tribe tensions on the high end, as well as three new people swapping over, complicating the tribe dynamics and putting everyone on edge about tonight's vote. The tribe generally felt scared about what is about to happen, but it had to be done. So, Terry and Laura were able to gather their majority alliance with Woo, Russell, Abi and Erik, as they all confirm their plan to vote out Lex, for being a dangerous threat in this game, but since they had the numbers, they may as well split the vote, in case he had an idol, but the question was, who will it be between Corinne or Eliza? Everyone feels like Corinne is the bigger strategic threat, but Eliza is a looser cannon and may disrupt tribal harmony even more, so they settle on to her.


But Abi would rather see both of them go, after their fight yesterday she really despised them, and she would rather save Lex today to ensure one of them left. So she had an idea, of making an side-alliance with Lex, as he is aligned with Kass, who she does trust for the most part. And asking him to save himself by throwing his vote to Eliza to ensure she goes home tonight. Lex likes the idea, as he doesn't care about her, but if it works, it not only saves him, but he will still have an idol in his back pocket to use next time. But, he is unsure if he can take Abi's words for granted, as she is known to be compulsive at times, so he isn't sure if this plan will actually work. But he still readies his idol for tonight, just in case he'll actually need it.


Meanwhile Corinne and Eliza are also making plans to save themselves, as they reach out to Erik, whom they have formed an alliance with, to see if he is still good with their plan to blindside Abi in a 4-3-2 vote. Erik is still unsure, as he wants to consider the repercussions of the move, and if it will work at all, so he asks them to see if they can at least get one more person involved just to increase their chances. But in reality, Erik just doesn't want blood in his hands. So Corinne and Eliza, went to talk to Woo about it, as they believe that there is still a bit of resentment in Woo during his time his Abi back at Angkor, and maybe that will prompt him to vote that way, as well as adding simple reasons, such as Abi being an unreliable ally, and will inevitably cause even more chaos if she stays in this game longer.


Woo is hearing it all out, as he is definitely resentful of Abi, he doesn't trust her at all and she may end up just being trouble for him, Terry and their whole alliance down the line. But right now, he also sees Corinne, Eliza and Lex, as troublemakers too, and maybe one of them should go. He also does have a Vote Blocker, that is only good for two more tribals, and so he considers using it tonight, to ensure one plan can go smoothly than the other. But ultimately, this tribal can be pivotal in the grand scheme of things, so he has to prepare for the worst outcome and move on another day in this game.


(What an interesting set up we have here... and I literally, can't wait to get to it. So, we'll be having the Tribal Council, in 6 hours. It will start at 2:00 pm and end at 8:00 pm EST. Honestly because I have something to do later that time, so I have to adjust the schedule, if there is a tie, we'll resolve it when I get back. Good Luck and Stay Tuned!!)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #10 (Day 18)


Since the first tribe swap, the new Ulu tribe had been dominant in challenges, and thus were able to avoid tribal council several times over, as such tribal tensions had been steadily rising, and it came to a boiling point when Abi, Eliza and Corinne had a massive argument at each other. But a surprise second tribe swap, forcing each tribe to swap three tribemates over, Ulu lost Spencer, Caleb and Michaela, but gained Laura, Lex and Russell in return.


Russell and Laura were immediately welcomed by Terry and Woo, and they decide to target Lex for being such a dangerous threat, they bring in Abi and Erik to form a majority six, to be able to split their votes 3-3 against Lex and Eliza, but with Corinne as a back up, just in case. Meanwhile Abi is hellbent on getting Eliza out, so she asked Lex to turn against her to ensure she went home instead of him, Lex is unsure however, and puts the idea in the back pocket alongside his Idol. But Corinne and Eliza weren't giving up, as they came up with a plan to blindside Abi through a 4-3-2 split, by getting either Erik or Woo to flip to their side. Woo is hesitant however, as Abi is a menace to him, but he does want to stick to his alliance. But he does still have a vote blocker to use tonight, to ensure one plan can work out without a hitch.


So many things to unpack, let's see whose torch will get snuffed tonight:

DS-TC: Tribal Council #10 (Day 18)


It is time to vote:


Woo: Jeff, I have this advantage, a vote blocker, it seems like something crazy is going to happen tonight, so I'm going to use it against Eliza.


Alright, that is a vote blocker advantage, tonight, Eliza's vote is blocked, she cannot vote. Now, it is time to vote:


(voting montage)


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.


Lex: Yup, I know I'm in trouble tonight, and Woo you did not help me feel at ease, so I'm playing it safe and this thing for myself.


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


Lex (does not count)


Lex (does not count)


Eliza (one vote Eliza)


Abi (that's one vote Abi, one vote Eliza)


Eliza (that's two votes Eliza, one vote Abi)


Abi (we're tied, two votes Abi, two votes Eliza, one vote left)


The tenth person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance; Abi.


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


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


Well, as Woo said, tonight was indeed crazy, now the question is, will things calm down or will that craziness carry on? Grab your torches, head back to camp, Good Night.

DS-TC: Tino & Ulu Camps (Day 19)


The Ulu tribe returned to their camp after the crazy tribal council they just had. Everyone had mixed feelings about it, but almost everyone was confused about what happened. Quickly the whole tribe had a discussion about what went wrong in the vote, Woo owned up to the mistake, he felt bamboozled by Eliza and Lex, after when he played the vote blocker, the two of them got up in tribal and started whispering, that he thought they're now going to gun for someone else, and with the possibly that Lex had an Idol, which indeed came true, he thought it was for the best to turn on Abi to try and preserve his core alliance. Erik too apologized, as he was also bamboozled during the whole thing and went into self preservation mode as well, but in reality, after seeing Woo play the vote blocker, and hearing all the blindside stories and strategies going in the game so far, he realized that he has not yet been playing any game, and he needs to step it up starting in his first tribal.


Terry was able to understand and forgive Woo, as he does also believe that Abi is one of the main instigators of conflict in the tribe, she may become an unreliable ally sooner than later, she is also the weakest player they have, but they were still able to flush Lex's idol, so all was good in his mind, although he does wish things could've played out better. While Laura was furious at him, as he has done and goofed it again, first Danielle, now Abi, how many more alliance members must he accidentally vote off? She forgives him for now, but she does fears that she could be next, so she decides to keep a closer eye on him. But Russell is only a little pissed about the outcome, as he knows that Kass is out there targeting Ulu members, and she got a freebie just now, and although he has now found himself with good alliance with Laura, he doesn't quite trust Terry or Woo yet, specially after what just happened, and after seeing those three make up that quickly, shows him that the three of them are really close, and he may be expendable when the time comes, so he starts getting some ideas to split Terry and Woo apart, to bring Laura closer to him and have better spot in that alliance.


Meanwhile, Eliza and Corinne were ecstatic about the outcome of the vote and surviving a critical vote, they were surprised that Lex had an idol all this time and he played it well, and turned on them, and that is only more reasons not to trust him, but if it worked in their favor, sure it works, and pulling off the move was amazing, but it doesn't change the fact that it is still the three of them in the bottom and now they are idolless, so they need scrap something up. Lex is still feeling a lot of things after that tribal, but right now he was able to blow a hole in this game and he hopes that he can take reign in what's to come.


At the Tino camp, Kass, Courtney and Shii Ann celebrate not going to tribal, Kass specially after going through five in a row, she's now confident that this tribe could now win challenges, and make it all the way to the merge. But it does mean that Spencer will be able to make it as well, she doesn't like that thought, as she fears that they are only going to keep bickering at each other and that will be the end to both of their games. She has tried to bury the hatchet twice, and it hasn't really worked and it's only about to get worse as the game goes on, so right now, she is thinking of throwing the next challenge, and using her Safety without Power to leave tribal, and hope that Spencer is not coming back to this camp later on.


She talks the idea to Shii Ann about this, and she is concerned, as she doesn't really want to throw any challenges, they just won, why should they lose again, plus she wants to keep Spencer around to be a shield, so she's not in total agreement to do that, and she believes that Caleb and Michaela will just laugh when they hear about it. But now knowing that Kass has an advantage, it does make her a little bit at ease, as Kass now at least has a bit of protection with her. Meanwhile, Caleb and Michaela are still debating over to give the boot to Kass or Spencer, as they have both been targeting them since the beginning of the game, but they were never successful. Although now was a prime time to get it done before the merge, but they decide to just try their best in the challenges ahead and run the clock to the merge. Where they will have more insight and help from other people.

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 19)


Challenge: Hot Pursuit


Tino, taking your first look at the new Ulu tribe, Abi voted out at the last tribal council. Alright, are you ready to get to today's immunity challenge? Firsts things first, I gotta take it back, once again immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge:


You are going to each be wearing a belt clipped to a rope, moving together as a tribe across an oval course, while each carrying 20 pound sandbags, racing to catch the other tribe. At any point if you feel tired, you can opt out and give your weight to somebody else, now they have to carry that weight, possibly slowing the tribe down, giving some advantage to the other tribe. First tribe to catch the other tribe, by putting one hand on any member, wins immunity.


Alright, Ulu, you have two extra members you have to sit two people out. Who will it be? Corinne and Eliza, take a seat on the sit out bench. I'll give the rest of you a minute to strategize, we'll get it on.


Survivors Ready?? Go!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/7rnzG9QragO


(You can drop your Expectations, we're not merging yet, lets see what the rest of this pre-merge has in store. The poll will end at 12:00 am EST, Good Luck!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 19)


Both tribes are off, both tribes just walking right now, preserving their strength until much later, interesting strategy, lets see who can pull it off. Courtney looking fatigued already, it's only been 2 minutes and she's beat, Tino is slowing down, this looks like a prime opportunity for Ulu to catch up and they start running. Courtney leaves and gives her bag to Spencer, Kass also leaves and gives her bag to Caleb and the remaining Tino starts running to regain their lost gap, and it works, both tribes are back even, but Tino is two people down, while Ulu still have all six and they are all looking strong. Tino is at a clear disadvantage right now, both Spencer and Caleb carrying 40 pounds, and it is indeed slowing them down, while Ulu is slowly but surely gaining a lot of progress to catch Tino. Ulu now at the same side of the course as Tino, Tino begins walking faster, now they're trying to sprint, but oh Shii Ann trips, losing valuable time for Tino, Michaela makes her leave and takes her bag, Now Tino is down to three people, each with 40 pounds. Ulu on the other hand still has all six of its members and they are looking strong and they are gaining on Tino with every step they take, while Tino is slowing down with every step they take. Here comes Ulu with a full on sprint... and that is it!! This challenge is over, Ulu wins immunity, sending Tino to tribal council!!


Ulu, well done, that was dominant victory, and because of that immunity is yours, nobody going home tonight. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, enjoy the night off. Tino, that is honestly a blowout, I will be seeing you in tribal council tonight, and somebody will be the eleventh person voted out of this game. You have the afternoon to figure who will it be. Grab your stuff, head back to camp, good luck.

DS-TC: Tino Camp (Day 19)


The Tino tribe returned to their camp, feeling frustrated about the challenge loss, but mostly nervous about going to tribal council tonight, as ever since the swap happened, the tribe has went through a vicious back and forth war between Kass and Spencer, particular Caleb and Michaela who have found themselves to be the main swing votes, being pulled by both sides to oust the other, but they haven't really agreed upon which one to take out, as both believe that they are both equally massive threats in this game, and they can only take one of them out. Shii Ann had approached them about just taking out Courtney to keep the tribe strong, but at this point, they believe that merge is coming soon and having Courtney around would mean less competition in immunity challenges, which is wonderful for them, so they refuse her offer, but keep it as an option in case anything goes haywire tonight.


Meanwhile Kass was feeling a little happy that her tribe lost the challenge, and she helped throw it by leaving right when Courtney left, further burdening the tribe with more weight, not that she needed to do that, they were going to lose that challenge to Ulu anyways, but she's here to cause chaos, and that's exactly what she's going to do tonight. She has a Safety without Power Advantage and that means she's safe tonight, but doesn't have a vote, which means she still needs to do some legwork to get the other votes on to Spencer and get him out for good. She goes to talk to Shii Ann, Caleb and Michaela, about the vote and they say that they are all good to go, and she's confident that it will all work out as she knows that it is either him or her, and because she's taking herself out of the equation, it will land on him tonight. But there is a slight chance that something could go wrong, he could have an idol, or block her use of her advantage or something, but overall, the data and the statistics are in her favor and she likes that.


But Spencer has his own plans as well, he notices that Kass is not looking too worried about the vote and he suspects that she has something up her sleeve, and will probably do something tonight to save herself and bring him down. But he also notices that she has been talking with Shii Ann a lot and is probably her closest ally in this tribe, since Courtney is so keen to get rid of her, And so he talks to Courtney, Caleb and Michaela to discuss possibly turning the vote to Shii Ann instead, has he fears that she and Kass are doing something and voting Shii Ann will be a safer option, plus it seems that Shii Ann is also playing a lowkey good game, as Caleb and Michaela confess that she wants to gun for Courtney, and almost convinced them it was a good idea to do that.


Courtney was shocked to hear about that, as she viewed Shii Ann as her next best ally after Abi, and after seeing Abi be voted out, Shii Ann would've gone up, but this really revealed to her that she is a snake in the grass, and will bite anyone to get her way. But she decides to give her the benefit of the doubt as she has a bigger problem. After seeing Abi not be in the game anymore, she believes that the original Ulus are being targeted one by one, and if they don't band together now, they'll lose the lead that they worked hard to get, or at the very least, take out the threats from the other two tribes first, before cannibalizing each other. So she decides to test Shii Ann's loyalty, by asking her to join her, Michaela and Spencer staying Ulu strong in voting against Caleb instead. Who she views as a massive social and physical threat come the merge, and with Kass looking suspicious, he's a good back up plan. Shii Ann is honestly confused about that plan, as Caleb is a good guy, he does a lot at camp and they need his strength if they are to still be competing as tribes. While Spencer agrees, as it's better than taking Shii Ann out, as he is also connected to Kass, as well as one less physical player for him to compete against for individual immunity. While Michaela, just laughs, he's the best ally she's got so far and she wants him around, and this pitch kind of wants her vote Courtney for how stupid it is.


Soon. Shii Ann got to talk to with Michaela and Caleb, to see where their heads are at, as the three of them are the pivotal swing votes tonight, and they need to be on the same page as to make sure things dont go wrong. But after what Spencer has told them, they are now a bit skeptical towards Shii Ann and they are worried that she's using this information to play them. So they answer reluctantly and erratically, which in turn makes Shii Ann worried too. She has a revelation, that maybe she shouldn't try and save her shields in hidden in the background, but she should be outright helping them, and so she makes one more plan, talk to Kass and Spencer separately, and turn the vote on Michaela and make a 3-2-1, she sees her as playing a hidden game so far through not attending tribal yet, and she could fly under the radar for a good part of the post-merge and possibly make all the way through her physical and strategic prowess, and that's a threat to her. Both Kass and Spencer are intrigued of the idea and puts in the back burner, as they look to aim their targets directly at each other as the sun goes down and the tribe heads to tribal council.


(Alright... I will just go and say it, this is going to be the craziest vote so far... ALL SIX players are on the ballot tonight, ANYONE can go, and since all six of these people have big fanbases backing them up... I expect an ALL OUT WAR. Let's do this!!)

DS-TC: Tribal Council #11 (Day 19)


The new Tino was met with great discord as the tribe quickly fell into chaos, as Kass and Spencer clashed after their long history, talking with everyone else to take the other out. This put Caleb and Michaela in a great and powerful swing position, however they can't seem to decide who is more dangerous between the two. However Shii Ann wants to keep both of them around as shields, and proposed that they gun for Courtney instead.


When they lost the immunity challenge, all bets were off as everyone scrambled to figure out what to do, Kass is willing to use her Safety without Power, but is unsure if she can get Spencer out with it. Spencer realizes Kass is up to something and turns the vote to Shii Ann. Courtney wants to keep Ulu's numbers strong and begins gunning for Caleb. And Shii Ann finds Michaela untrustworthy and sets up her own plan.


This is going to be good.


It is time to vote:

DS-TC: Tribal Council #11 (Day 19)


It is time to vote.


Kass: Jeff, I got something for you, with everything that is going on in camp, I know I'm not safe tonight, so I'm just going to keep myself in this game.


This is a Safety without Power, this advantage allows Kass to leave tribal council right now and take herself out of the ballot in the vote, you cannot vote her out tonight, that is the safety, and in exchange she will not vote tonight, that is the without power. Alright, Kass pack your stuff, grab your torch, head out.


Now, it is time to vote:



(voting montage)


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


Shii Ann: Yeah, I'm also sure that with all of that whispering... I am not safe tonight, so I am playing this for myself.


This is a Hidden Immunity Idol, any votes cast against Shii Ann 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, Spencer.


Michaela (that's one vote Michaela, one vote Spencer)


Spencer (that's two votes Spencer, one vote Michaela)


The eleventh person voted out of Survivor: Third Chance, and the first member of our Jury; Spencer.


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


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


Another day, another crazy tribal, and we now have the first member of the jury. And with that being said, this game just keeps on going, you can drop your buffs, you are merging with Ulu, here's a map and your new buffs, Kass, your personal items and your competition will be waiting for you at Ulu's camp. Grab your torches, head to your new home, good luck.

DS-TC: Announcements


Alright, first and foremost this is not the continuation of the season, I just have some things to say about what is next for our Dream Season. Firstly, I will be taking a short break for the next few days, I just have a camping trip over the weekend, and I want to enjoy it as much as I can. So no Dream Season posts in a while, I think the end of this pre-merge is an excellent stopping point for now, it will also allow me to think of more ideas for the tribe dynamics and strategies moving forward, specially in this merge round, where things will be very intense as our final 13 third chancers look forward with the win in sight.


Secondly, I do want to discuss advantages again, as these last two round saw five out of six advantages be used and/or flushed, and I think some of them should return, but at the same time, I do feel like it is going to be too much, when accounting three more advantages coming into play in these next few rounds, A Merge Advantage, and another Keep it or Steal it dilemma, which I'll keep as secrets for now, until the time comes to reveal it. Anyhow, I think the best options is to just have one or both idols be rehidden and put back into play, but let me know what you all think.


Thirdly, I just have a bunch of questions:


1. What should the Merged tribe name be?

2. Who are you rooting for?

3. How would you rate this Season so far?

4. Are you excited and What are you expecting for the rest of this game?

5. Do you have any other questions for me to answer?


That will be all for today, thank you for tuning in to Dream Season: Survivor: Third Chance! I'll see you in Monday for the all exciting merge episode.

DS-TC: Toluno Camp (Day 20)

The Ulu tribe wake up in the middle of the night, as they find Kass suddenly at their camp, she and everyone were utterly confused about what was happening, Kass couldn't really explain as she was just told to go here after leaving tribal council after playing her safety without power, she even thought that she missed something in the fine print of that advantage, while several others thought it was a mutiny of some kind. But eventually the rest of the Tino tribe arrive as well, and they break the news that the tribes are now merging, and had the buffs to prove it. The new tribe cheered themselves for making it this far but since it was late at night, everyone just decided to make space in the shelter to sleep in and figure things out when the sun rises later. But at the back of their minds, each of them were already making plans for the next half of the game.


The tribe woke up to find a huge banquet of food laid on a long table near their camp, and they all rushed there to get some. As they all went and enjoyed upon this merge feast of theirs, it just so happens that Erik finds a roll of paper in his napkin and he discretely hid it away in this shorts, while the rest of this new tribe gleefully engaged in conversations but particularly about what happened during the past two tribal councils to get a feel for what is happening in the game as a whole. Soon enough, people were finished, they have settled on a tribe name and started going off around the beach and the woods to get their plans in motion.


Terry, Woo and Laura were confident with their alliance with Russell and Erik, and thought they could also pull in Courtney, Caleb and Michaela to make a majority, alongside Shii Ann for good measure, to take out the former Lotos, strategic threats Kass and Lex, and troublemakers Eliza and Corinne. They all seem to be in agreement. But Courtney grew to distrust Shii Ann after everything that has happened to them at Tino, she wasn't really Ulu strong, and had her own plans and an Idol she didn't know about, which further soured her taste in her. So Courtney decided to tell Laura, Terry and Russell about Shii Ann's duplicity and how untrustworthy she is, and she should be taken out soon. They are receptive to the idea, but they since they needed numbers, they tell her that they should work with her for now, but pick her off later on down the line. Courtney is fine with that, but she's really not that happy with this working environment. But neither is Shii Ann, as she was able to overhear the conversation at a distance, and is genuinely shooked. She wanted to work with this large majority, in order to conceal her threat level, but since the cat is out of the bag now, she might as well wreck chaos as well, and so she goes to Lex and Kass to see where their heads are at.


Kass and Lex were feeling really paranoid, as they both had used their advantages these past two rounds, were vulnerable and have huge targets on their backs, even their third wheel Shii Ann had used her idol as well, their only hope now is to get Corinne and Eliza back to their side, as they seem to be in the bottom as well in Ulu, and they may as well band together for now. Corinne and Eliza are skeptical of their intentions, but as things are looking pretty bleak, they decided to temporarily work with them just to broaden their options in this upcoming merge vote, because their main game plan is to work with Caleb and Michaela, who they have formed a good connection with during the first swap, they are receptive into working with them as well, as they never really got to do so, but both Caleb and Michaela both know how malicious these two are, and how dangerous Kass and Lex are. But at the same time, the other side has all kinds of challenge beasts that will be a threat to them down the line. Once again Caleb and Michaela have found themselves in the middle of this whole tribe.


Meanwhile, Erik managed to sneak off into the woods to read the note he had found earlier. It was an idol clue, which he managed to decipher as near the tree mail. He decided to look around the area, careful not to be seen by anyone, and he eventually found it behind the tree mail bag. He gleefully stuck in inside his shorts and ran to get some privacy. He opened the package and read the inscription "Congratulations you have found a hidden immunity idol, this idol is unique as you must share it one-half of it with someone by sundown for it to have power, however after you given half to someone, you two can choose to keep it separate and protect both of you for until the Final 10, or you can combine them and have protection for until the Final 5." Erik is amazed with this dilemma, he can choose to share this idol and protect two people for a limited time or he can just keep it together and protect himself for a longer time, which he wants to do, granted his curse of only being in the final 5. He can now see the dilemma Shii Ann had when she found her idol, and he thought he should return the favor, but at the same time, maybe he should widen his options a little bit and show it to somebody else, Russell had been talking with him for a while after Ulu's first tribal, about turning against Terry and Woo for being such an inseparable pair that will be a threat in the pecking order of their alliance, he's good with the idea as he wants to make bigger moves this time around. But on the other hand, Eliza had been talking with him too since the first swap, and maybe he solidify his alliance with her with this idol. This is a very critical decision at a very critical time, and he has to be sure he will make the right choice, or else he may not see what final four feels like.

(Interesting storylines we have going here... people trusting and distrusting each other, voting blocks, flippers, swing votes, idol dilemmas and this is only just the beginning. We still have an immunity challenge to get to... and get ready for it... because it's Do or Die!)

DS-TC: Immunity Challenge (Day 21)


Challenge: Hard to Handle


It's nice to see all thirteen of you, it seems like the game is already on. Toluno, are you ready to get to your first immunity challenge as individuals? Firsts things first, I have to take it back, tribal immunity is no more, individual immunity, is what you covet now, if you have this around your neck, you are safe from the vote, cannot be voted out of this game, guaranteed a spot in the final 12, and it seems like all of you need it desperately. Unfortunately, only one of you can get it. For today's challenge:


You are going to stand on a narrow beam while balancing a ball on a platform, at regular intervals, you will move down to a narrower part of the beam and move your hand farther down the pole, making it more difficult to balance the ball and yourself. If at any point you fall off the beam or the ball drops, you are out. Last person left standing wins immunity, safe from the vote. Losers, somebody will be voted out tonight.


But there is a twist to this challenge, and it's a dangerous one. It is Do or Die. The first person to drop out of this challenge will be Cursed by the spirits in ghost island, and you will be forced to write your own name down in tonight's tribal council. Not only do you not have immunity since you just lost, you can't have an idol played on you either, but you will be voting for yourself and nobody else, meaning you can't help your alliance by voting with them, and instead, your enemies could just piggyback off your own vote for yourself, and get you out. You can still survive, but it's a very precarious position to be in, especially in one of the most critical moments in this game.


But if you don't want to risk it, that's fine, you can sit out of this challenge entirely, but you cannot win immunity. Which means if you want this necklace, you are going to have to risk being the first person out in this challenge, and putting a huge burden on you tonight. Very Big Stakes, specially in the first merge vote that will define how the rest of this game will go. I will be giving you two rocks, Black means you are participating this challenge, White means you are sitting out and not risking it.


Make their choice: https://strawpoll.com/polls/kjn1jK2r2gQ


This challenge is on!!


Challenge: https://strawpoll.com/polls/BDyNjPLq8yR


(Alright... First Individual Immunity challenge... and a revised Do or Die twist at the same time. Things are about to go crazy. Here's how it will work. All players who reach at least 25 votes in the sit out poll, will be sitting out, which cancels their ballot on the Challenge poll. In the rare chance that everyone sits out, the bottom two will be forced to participate and duke it out One on One. You have 8 hours, until 2:00 AM EST for this whole challenge. And don't worry... there is still a part to this Do or Die twist later on when they go back to camp, and I am excited for it. Good Luck!!)
