Last Time On SURVIVOR…
Wayne felt the sting of the BOBALNA tribe’s first Tribal Council…
Wayne Confessional: I know you’re supposed to take your mistakes out here and reflect on them so that they make you stronger, and I’ve been trying to do that, but I saw my name come up two times last night and both times that it came up – I just got weaker and weaker
Pamela and Tiffany had it out on ZAPOLYA…
Pamela [to Tiffany]: Listen here, hag, you don’t tell me what to do, okay?
Tiffany [to Pamela]: Excuse you – what did you just call me?
The Immunity Challenge had the Survivors hunting for keys…
Delilah (shouting with excitement): I got one!
And ZAPOLYA continued their winning streak by capturing their second Immunity win…
Theo [to the rest of ZAPOLYA]: WE did it!
And at Tribal Council, a surprised Chris became the third person to leave the game…
Chris [final words]: Umm…wow.
THIRTEEN REMAIN. WHO WILL BE VOTED OUT TONIGHT?
Well, last night was Tribal Council number two (*he holds up two fingers to the camera*)…it’s just never fun being there. It’s like forty five minutes in hell. It’s hot, it’s dark, and to tell you the truth – it scares the crap out of me. I don’t like going there and I don’t want to be there for a long, long, long, long time.
*Cory wakes up on the dirt floor of the BOBALNA tower and nudges Wayne with a playful elbow*
Cory [to Wayne] (whispering): You made it through!
Wayne [to Cory] (whispering): I been sittin’ here thinkin’, and that was probably the most scared I’ve been in a long while.
Cory [to Wayne]: We need you – just remember that. You’re a lot stronger than people around here are giving you credit for.
Wayne [to Cory]: I appreciate that, bro…
Cory [to Wayne] (quietly laughing): Man, don’t start talkin’ like Chris – we got rid of him so we could understand what everyone was sayin’ around here!
Wayne [to Cory]: You’d better keep it down or you’re going to wake the others up.
Cory [to Wayne] (whispering): What’re they gonna do? Vote me out?
Charlene [to Cory] (from behind him, but very groggy): If you don’t give me ten more minutes of sleep I’ll write your freakin’ name down, now shut up!
Cory [to Charlene] (laughing): Oh be quiet back there!
The way things are set up right now on BOBALNA – it’s a pretty good situation for me. I’m probably one of the last people to go, if not THE last one, and we’ve gotten rid of the thorns in our sides. We’re a powerful tribe.
Wayne [to Cory] (very quiet): If we go again, to Council, I mean – am I the one?
Cory [to Wayne] (cautiously): I don’t know – for me, it’d be a toss up between you and a few other people.
With Wayne – you can’t tell him too much because he’s always so paranoid. If you give him any little piece of information, he takes it and runs with it. I don’t want the rest of the tribe knowing how I feel about them and what my strategy is – that’s my business – so I’ve been cautious in what I’ve been letting slip out.
Wayne [to Cory]: Who’re the others?
Cory [to Wayne]: I’m not sure, man – ask me when we end up having to go again.
Charlene [to Cory and Wayne]: You two – didn’t we just talk about this? I’m gonna come over there and beat you both up!
Wayne [to Cory] (imitating Charlene): Oh my gosh – pillow fight!
Cory [to Wayne] (laughing): Man, we don’t even have any pillows!
Wayne’s actually a fun person to be around when he’s not busy moping around the camp. The way I look at it, he’s actually got a couple of more Tribal Councils before his time is up, but he doesn’t need to know that. So long as I keep him close to me while he’s paranoid about the others – I’ve got a voteproof vest in him. He doesn’t need to know how important he actually is.
*Cory, Chris, and Charlene all walk quietly out of the BOBALNA tower as not to disturb the other sleeping tribemates. Once outside the discussion changes from sleep to alternatives for the next Tribal Council they have to attend*
Wayne [to Cory and Charlene]: So I’m still wanting to know – am I next if we have to go again?
Charlene [to Wayne]: I would vote Brittnie out before you, to tell you the truth. Brittnie and Laura, actually.
*Wayne and Cory’s mouth’s both hang wide open in surprise*
Charlene [to Wayne and Cory]: What? They’re good people, but they aren’t as strong as the rest of us.
Cory [to Charlene]: But I thought you and Brittnie were like…really close.
Charlene [to Cory]: We are…but we’re in this to win Challenges and they aren’t really pushing us over the top.
Charlene saying that she would vote out her two friends, Laura and Brittnie before Wayne was actually probably one of the biggest shocks I’ve had up to this point in the game. It’s not that I’m opposed to the idea, it’s just that I didn’t see it coming.
Wayne [to Charlene]: I love that you said that – you have no idea how much of a relief that is!
Her saying that I had at least nine more days did nothing but put a huge smile on my face. I love this game more than – I don’t know—more than…almost anything, and – it sucks because I’ve been in a crappy position since the get-go, but now – man, it’s amazing, because that gives me that renewed sense of hope that’s going to keep me going!
Charlene [to Wayne] (grinning): It’s not a problem – but don’t you say a word.
Wayne [to Charlene]: Promise!
Telling Wayne and Cory that I was planning on voting for Brittnie or Laura at the next Tribal Council was total strategy. The three of us have an alliance and we want to see where we stand with the “big strong” men of the tribe, so we came up with the idea of approaching them and seeing if they would be willing to vote us out.
Brittnie or Laura – I never would’a expected it.
And what do you know? They walked RIGHT into our trap. Now we’ve got a pretty good idea of where we stand – or…well, actually more like we have a good idea of where they stand. I’m still not sure where I play into their plan.
Wayne [to Cory and Charlene]: It’s good that we’re planning – just incase, you know?
Cory [to Wayne]: Yeah, I guess it is.
Charlene [to both]: Sure is.
*Tiffany and Stacey sit alone outside their shelter as the others are off doing their own thing for the day*
Tiffany [to Stacey]: I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of Pamela.
Stacey [to Tiffany]: Yeah, I understand.
Tiffany [to Stacey]: She doesn’t do a damn thing around this camp..
Stacey [to Tiffany]: I know…
Tiffany [to Stacey]: She only cares about herself…
Stacey [to Tiffany]: I know…
Tiffany [to Stacey]: And I’m willing to bet that she’d sell us all out in a second if it came down to her or somebody else…
Stacey [to Tiffany]: I know…
Tiffany [to Stacey]: Am I the only one who sees it?
Stacey [to Tiffany]: No, you’re not – but she’s really pretty good in challenges, and once you get to talking with her, she’s actually pretty funny.
Tiffany [to Stacey]: Are you kidding me? That pile of botox and silicone? I didn’t know plastic could have a personality.
Tiffany is just an all around paranoid person, and so right now she’s building up Pamela to be worse than she actually is.
*The camera switches to a shot of Pamela looking disgusted as she sits alone in a pile of dirt*
Pamela and Tiffany just aren’t the type of people that get alone. Pamela is very materialistic. She loves money, and she loves looking beautiful, and she loves having power and being dominant. Tiffany loves being different and unique and being one of the bad boys, so – of course there are going to be conflicts there. They’re polar opposites.
Tiffany [to Stacey]: Let me tell you, if we end up going to Tribal Council again – hopefully we won’t – I want to get rid of her as soon as possible, ‘cause let me tell you, she serves NO purpose to any of us.
Plain and simple, she’s a pain in my rear end. I couldn’t care less if you got who knows how much money, and I could care less, you know, how much plastic surgery you got to make yourself look good – you know? I ain’t nobody to criticize about doin’ stuff to your body, ‘cause who knows how many tat’s I got on myself – but, what DOES bother me is when people don’t care. And she ain’t giving a rat’s ass about any of us. She’s out here for herself and herself only, and that’s not somethin’ I will support. We’re a team, and she’s not thinkin’ like a teammate.
*As the girls continue to talk, Delilah comes and sits down next to them and starts to eat her afternoon ration of food*
Delilah [to Tiffany and Stacey]: Wha’ ch’all doin’ here, ladies? Gossipin’ about t’a men?
Tiffany [to Stacey]: What did she just say?
Stacey [to Tiffany] (both Stacey and Delilah laugh): She’s just asking if we’re gossiping about the boys.
Tiffany [to Delilah] (embarrassed): Oh, you know it!
My accent makes it ver’ hard t’a understand me sometimes. It’s really my own fault ‘cause I’m use t’a talkin’ so dang fast, but t’en I come out here and I’m hard t’a understand. It’s embarrassing, really.
Stacey [to Delilah]: So D, you were in beauty pageants before this?
Delilah [to Stacey]: Oh yes, I did a lot’a pageant work before t’is. Very compet-itive stuff – keeps y’a on y’a feet.
Tiffany [to Delilah]: That must’ve been good training for this – give you a good sense of people’s characters.
Delilah [to Tiffany]: Oh yes, t’at’s one’a the benefits.
Tiffany [to Delilah]: So whose the biggest phony out of the group?
Delilah [to Tiffany]: Out’a just our tribe or t’a others?
Tiffany [to Delilah]: Both.
Delilah [to Tiffany]: On our tribe – T’eo jus’ seems too good’n pure, y’a know what I mean? I have got t’a know him the leas’, and he’s puttin’ up this image of Superman. I don’ t’ink it’s really all that accurate.
Tiffany [to Delilah]: What about the others?
Delilah [to Tiffany]: T’a one darker girl, t’a one with the big eyes, she seem like she could be trouble – and t’at one guy wit’ t’a dark hair – I t’ink he’s Hispanic?
Stacey [to Delilah]: Oooh, Laura and Wayne?
Tiffany [to Stacey]: Is that their names? I haven’t paid attention to that.
Stacey [to Tiffany]: Yeah, Laura – I’m not sure what she is, but she’s the short exotic looking one.
Tiffany [to Stacey]: Mmhmm.
Stacey [to Tiffany]: And I think Wayne is the Hispanic one – the guy who messed up the challenge a while back.
Tiffany [to both girls] (laughing): You mean our good luck charm?
Stacey [to Tiffany]: Yep, him.
It was probably smart to get to know the other people’s names, ‘cause we don’t have a clue as to what’s gonna happen with us – when we’re gonna merge, if we ever will merge, if there’ll be a switch, if something might happen where we have to interact with ‘em, and – the two other girls and me got to talkin’, and we really just tried to figure out as much as we could.
Delilah [to Stacey]: Is t’at t’a one t’at looks like Marilyn Monroe?
Tiffany [to Delilah]: No, that’s Charlene – she sat out on one of the challenges, so I remember her.
So we got them all figured out. Laura is the exotic looking one who seems kind of stupid, Norm is the oldest guy on there, Cory is the handsome one with the hat that he wears all the time, Brittnie is the porky redhead, Charlene is the beautiful blonde, and Chris is the wannabe rap-star.
Tiffany [to both]: So who left last night?
Delilah [to Tiffany]: Wayne seemed on edge.
Stacey [to Tiffany]: I don’t think Laura is all that smart. I wouldn’t be surprised if she went.
Tiffany [to both]: So Amanda is the one they voted out?
Stacey [to Tiffany]: I think so.
It was fun! We had all of those guys pegged with different personalities and stuff like that – I’m sure we’re all completely off from how they really are, but I like the people we came up with in our head (laughing) – I’ll bet they’re more entertaining than the actual people.
Expect The Unexpected
Norm [to Brittnie]: So what does this mean?
Brittnie [to Norm]: Sounds like some sort of twist. I don’t know – everything’s been too normal around here and I think they’re going to try and throw some twists at us.
Norm [to Brittnie]: What kind of twist?
Brittnie [to Norm] (with a wink): Why guess? Surprises are so much more fun!
Chad [to Jamie]: So we’re lookin’ at some sort’a twist, eh? Interesting. Interesting, indeed.
Jamie [to Chad]: You’re a pretty weird person, aren’t you?
Chad [to Jamie]: Indeed. Indeed.
Jamie [to Chad]: Right. So…twist, huh?
Chad [to Jamie]: It would appear that way, would it not?
Jamie [to Chad] (laughing): Let’s go tell the others.
*Both tribes march on to a large green field inhabited with nothing but Jeff Probst behind a small table. Once at their mats, Jeff comes out from behind the table and begins to talk*
Jeff Probst: Hey Guys…lookin’ good. ZAPOLYA, getting your first look at the new BOBALNA minus Chris.
*Tiffany quickly turns to Delilah and Stacey*
Tiffany [to both] (whispering): They got rid of Vanilla Ice!
*Both girls laugh as Jeff begins to speak again*
Jeff Probst: So, you guys have been out here for fourteen days – Laura, how’re you guys holding up?
Laura [to Jeff Probst]: This isn’t, like – this isn’t something my body is used to, so I’m hungry, but – it’s like, it’s all good. I’m up for anything.
Jeff Probst: You’re hungry?
Laura [to Jeff] (laughing): I think I’d kill most of these guys for a hamburger!
Jeff Probst: Are any of you other guys hungry?
*Everyone else quickly nods*
Jeff Probst: Well I’m glad you brought your appetite. As you all know, we’re here in Transylvania, and Transylvania is a place surrounded by fear – so we decided to test you all and see how much you really want to win.
Brittnie [to Jeff]: What do you mean?
Jeff Probst: Today is the Survivor gross food challenge.
*Cory and Pamela laugh as others like Stacey and Delilah look disgusted*
Laura [to Jeff]: We aren’t eating hamburgers, are we?
Jeff Probst: Nope, sorry to tell you you’re not.
Laura [to Jeff]: So what ARE we eating?
*Jeff holds one finger in the air to indicate for the Survivors to hold on a second. He reaches under the table and puts things on the top. First comes a bottle of milk.*
Jeff Probst: Goat milk.
Delilah [to everyone] (laughing): I’m not drinkin’ anythin’ that comes from a goat – that’s just a rule I live by in life.
*The next thing out from under the table is a plate with large chunks of mystery meat*
Jeff Probst: Various meats from dead animals found all over this area.
Jamie [to Jeff]: You’ve GOT to be kidding me!
*Jeff reaches under the table, but before putting it on the top he pauses and explains…*
Jeff Probst: Now, before I show you guys this – Tiffany, what’re a few animals you’d associate with Transylvania?
Tiffany [to Jeff]: I don’t know – umm…wolves, vampire bats…
Jeff Probst: Hold it right there…did you say bats?
Tiffany [to Jeff] (covering her eyes): No! No! No! No bats!
Jeff Probst (laughing): Final item – collected from caves all around this area, our last item…
*He plops the final jar on the top of the table*
Jeff Probst: Bat guano!
*Some of the Survivors laugh, others cringe, but one thing is for sure – all the contestants are thoroughly grossed out*
Chad [to Jeff]: So are we eating all this stuff like a buffet or do we just have to have one item?
Jeff Probst: This is going to be mixed up in a blender and you’ll have our “Transylvanian Twisters” as we like to call ‘em.
Chad [to Jeff]: Lovely. Absolutely lovely.
Jamie [to ZAPOLYA]: Alright, guys – this is gross but we can do it – GO ZAPO…
Jeff Probst (interrupting): OH, one other thing!
*Jeff reaches under the table on last time and pulls out a large gold vase with beautiful porcelain designs up the front and sides*
Jeff Probst: Who wants to reach in there first?
Jamie [to Jeff]: What’s in there?
Jeff Probst: Reach in there and see.
Jamie [to Jeff]: It’s not a big snake or anything, right?
Jeff Probst (laughing): Reach in and find out.
*Jamie walks over slowly and after a few seconds of pausing, reaches in and grabs a light cloth. He pulls it out and is surprised to see…*
Jeff Probst: A new buff!
Stacey [to Jeff]: Oh man, Oh man, Oh man! I know what this means!
Jamie [to Jeff]: So…wait…this is gold. So, I’m on BOBALNA?
Jeff Probst: That’s right – everyone else, drop your buffs. We’re having a tribal switch. Wayne, come up here.
*Wayne comes up and draws another gold buff*
Jeff Probst: You’re staying on BOBALNA – go introduce yourself to Jamie.
*Wayne walks over to Jamie and after a friendly handshake they begin to talk*
Jeff Probst: Chad, you’re up next.
*Chad draws a ZAPOLYA buff*
*Charlene draws a ZAPOLYA buff*
*Pamela draws a ZAPOLYA buff*
*Norm draws a ZAPOLYA buff*
Jeff Probst: Four in a row – Theo, you gonna make it five
*Theo draws a BOBALNA buff*
*Laura draws a BOBALNA buff*
*Stacey draws a ZAPOLYA buff*
*Cory draws a ZAPOLYA buff*
*Delilah draws a BOBALNA buff*
*Brittnie draws a ZAPOLYA buff*
BOBALNA: Delilah, Jamie, Laura, Tiffany, Theo, and Wayne
ZAPOLYA: Brittnie, Chad, Charlene, Cory, Norm, Pamela, and Stacey
Jeff Probst: Okay, everybody you all can now switch to your new tribes.
*The survivors, after giving farewell hugs to some, move to their appropriate mats and wait for instructions from Jeff*
Jeff Probst (looking over card with names on it): Looks good. Alright, now we’re going to be having these “smoothies” in pairs, so somebody from BOBALNA is going to have to go twice. The ZAPOLYA members will be choosing who that person is. First match is Laura vs. Charlene.
Laura [to Jeff]: Are you serious?
Jeff [to Laura]: You know it. Stand in front of the table.
*Both women exit their respective team mats and walk to the front of the table and watch as Jeff pours the milk, meat, and guano into his blender. After a few seconds of blending, he takes the lid off the top and pours it in two very large glasses*
Jeff Probst: This isn’t a race, so we’re just looking for the both of you to finish it.
Charlene [to Jeff]: Aren’t you going to have any?
Jeff Probst: No, I’m good.
Laura [to Jeff] (whining): This is SO totally, like, the worst thing I’ve ever had to eat in my entire life! Gag me!
*After a few minutes both women have their shakes down. After plopping their glasses onto the tale they open their mouth’s widely to show that none of the shake remains*
Jeff Probst: Alright, you two are good. Next up are Delilah and Pamela.
Pamela [to Jeff]: There doesn’t happen to be any vodka in goat’s milk, is there?
Jeff Probst: No.
Pamela [to Jeff]: Damn.
*The camera fast-forwards to show both Delilah and Pamela chugging their shakes, then to Tiffany and Brittnie, Theo and Stacey, and finally Wayne and Chad. All seem to do well, with the exception of an occasional gag here and there, but all miraculously manage to keep everything down*
Norm [to Jeff]: So who do I get to go against, Jeff?
Jeff Probst: You guys can either decide as a tribe or you can make the decision individually, but you can pick any of the new BOBALNA members.
Norm [to Jeff] (with a sinister smile): I’d like to go up against Wayne.
Jamie [to Norm] (from the background): Norm, that’s not a good idea – go with one of the girls.
Norm [to Jamie]: No – I want to go up against Wayne.
Wayne [to Norm]: You’re an ass, I just hope you know that.
Norm [to Wayne]: It’s okay, I’m a doctor – I have the right to be.
Wayne [to Jeff] (laughing): This guy is incredible – can we just get this over with?
Jeff Probst: Alright, Norm and Wayne, since this is the tie-breaker situation you’re all going to be doing something a little different.
Norm [to Jeff]: How different?
Jeff Probst: Well, we’re not really going to make you chug that whole shake – that’s just nasty, right?
Wayne [to Jeff]: No, you’re being too nice to us – I think I’d rather have the shake or whatever that thing is.
Jeff Probst: Since you two are the big strong guys for your team, you’re going to be eating…
*Jeff reaches under the table to grab two different plates for both Wayne and Norm…*
Jeff Probst: Pure bat guano.
*The camera cuts to the faces of the other Survivors as they move back in shock, then switches to a picture of both Wayne and Norm standing with their mouth’s hanging open in disgust*
Wayne [to Jeff]: You’ve got to be kidding.
Norm [to Jeff]: That’s disgusting…I won’t do it.
Jeff Probst: Come on guys, just a big pile of protein.
Wayne [to Jeff]: That’s the grossest thing anybody has ever had to eat on TV…you’ve got to be kidding.
Jeff Probst: Nope.
Wayne [to Jeff]: Absolutely disgusting.
Norm [to Jeff]: You’ve got to be kidding, right? Just make us drink a really big shake.
Jeff Probst: Sorry boys. That is a quarter pound of bat guano on the plate. Whoever finishes it first wins Immunity for their new tribe.
Jamie [to Wayne] (from the background): You can do it, Wayne!
Jeff Probst: You both have to agree. If either one of you forfeits, the other tribe wins Immunity.
Norm [to Jeff]: I’m doin’ it.
Wayne [to Jeff]: Me too.
Jeff Probst: Alright gentlemen, time begins….NOW!
*The camera zooms in as both Norm and Wayne begin eating the quarter pound of bat guano. After the first bite both men gag, but are strong enough to continue on*
Laura [to Wayne]: You got this!
Pamela [to Norm]: You lose and we’ll vote you out!
Tiffany [to Wayne]: Prove him wrong, Wayne – show him you’re tougher than he thinks you are!
*After a few minutes of eating both men looked drained and nauseated. Although discouraged by the taste, they continue on taking tiny bites from the large portion*
Tiffany [to Wayne]: Come on, Wayne – you’re almost there! Just throw those other few bits back and we’ve got this!
*Norm, looking over and seeing how little Wayne had left, goes into panic mode and starts shoving everything on his plate down his throat. After a few seconds both men are almost done until Jeff announces…*
Jeff Probst: NORM wins Immunity for the new ZAPOLYA!
*Wayne, surprised and disheartened, throws his plate off the table and lets out an upset scream. Norm, trying to rub it in, turns to him and, with a grin, says…*
Norm [to Wayne]: I guess the best man won this time. Don’t worry about it.
Wayne [to Norm]: Screw you, man – screw you and the rest of your little sheep over there.
Norm [to Wayne]: Now Wayne, there’s no need to get hostile. You lost. You’re a loser. Just accept that.
*Wayne walks away from the table and away from the tribes and out towards the empty field. After a few seconds he comes back and Jeff Probst prepares to see them out*
Jeff Probst: ZAPOLYA, you guys have won Immunity, so BOBALNA, we’ll have a date at Tribal Council tomorrow night. You guys can head back to camp.
*The newly formed Tribes head off into the sunset. With the ZAPOLYA tribe, an overwhelming sense of joy and relief fills the air as they proudly march back to camp holding the Immunity idol, while on the other side, the new BOBALNA tribe walk slowly with their heads hung low, a sense of defeat and pessimism surrounds them*
Well, we get to the Challenge today and what do you know? It’s a TWISTA!
*The camera cuts to a picture of everyone on the new ZAPOLYA tribe as they hug. The former ZAPOLYA members then begin to show the former BOBALNA members around the camp site and show them their shelter*
It needed to happen, because some of those drones on our old tribe were boring! They’d just sit there and do nothing. Where’s their sense of adventure? This is Survivor! I think everyone should have the attitude of being alive, and they just weren’t thinking like that. If these new people are as boring as the old ones I’m thinking of voting myself out!
Chad [to Brittnie]: Why hello Ms. Brittnie, it’s just absolutely lovely to meet you!
Brittnie [to Chad] (laughing): Well aren’t you just the perfect gentlemen!
Chad [to Brittnie]: It’s always a delight to meet such a beautiful lady such as yourself!
Brittnie [to Chad] (laughing): Your name wouldn’t happen to be Don Juan, would it?
Chad [to Brittnie]: No, but I had a cousin named Leonard.
Brittnie [to Chad] (laughing): Wow…alright. So what’s your name again?
Chad [to Brittnie]: Chad, but you can call me The Captain.
The first thing once I get to the new ZAPOLYA camp – Chad introduces himself to me, and let me tell you – he’s a pretty freaky guy.
I test people. I’ve said it a million times – I don’t want to be around people that I can’t have fun with, and I have fun with people who don’t take themselves too seriously. If people are totally weirded out by me, there’s no way we’re going to be able to have fun – so when I first introduce myself I try to be as off the wall as possible. That’s what happened with Brittnie, and she actually passed the test.
Brittnie [to Chad]: So, Captain, how about you show me around?
Chad [to Brittnie]: Well I’d just be delighted!
Chad Confessional (with a devilish grin on his face):
I think this group is going to be a lot more fun than the last one.
*The camera watches as the new losing tribe walks back to their camp. The new members; Delilah, Tiffany, Theo, and Jamie, are all impressed with the tower and the other luxuries around camp*
Tiffany [to everyone]: Well, this is kind of a crappy way to start out as a new tribe – but, let’s pick up the pieces and move on.
Laura [to Tiffany]: There isn’t much else we can do, really.
The twist TOTALLY screwed both Wayne and myself over because now, we’re like the minority.
Laura [to Theo]: It’s so neat to finally get to see you all here. I’m used to thinking of you guys as the competition – it’s gonna be, like, a shock to be competing alongside you all!
Theo [to Laura]: Yeah, I know what you mean.
I went from having an alliance of three that was strong with Brittnie and Charlene to being alone with WAYNE of all people. Like, I don’t dislike the guy – he’s really nice, but, I mean, come on now…he’s obviously been on the edge for quite some time now, and I think he might try to take me with him.
Laura [to Delilah]: I just don’t want to be taken out because I was a BOBALNA. I don’t think that’s fair after all the work I’ve put into this.
I’m not going to give up, because I’ve worked, like, I’ve worked my ass off to get this far, and I didn’t work that hard to get voted out fourth or fifth. I’m going the distance.
Laura [to Tiffany]: I just want you to know that – if you decide to keep me around, I’m, like, I’m not the type of person whose going to go back and burn you, you know what I’m saying?
Tiffany [to Laura]: I know – it’s just hard to make a commitment when it’s such a bad situation. I mean, I could say I won’t vote for you – but I’m not really the decision maker, you’ve gotta understand that.
Laura [to Tiffany]: I see.
Tiffany [to Laura]: Don’t be disheartened or anything – just understand that it’s still a game.
Laura [to Tiffany]: Oh, I understand that – it just sucks that it’s happening to me so suddenly.
Tiffany [to Laura]: I’m not trying to be the bitch here. I’m just telling you – it’s a numbers game. Right now the numbers aren’t really in your favor.
*After nodding, Laura walks back to the tower where she finds Theo looking around*
Laura [to Theo]: Am I going?
Theo [to Laura]: I don’t know, honestly. I haven’t made up my mind about the vote yet.
Laura [to Theo]: Can we make a deal?
Theo [to Laura]: What kind?
Up to this point I had been pretty stand offish about making alliances and deals – stuff like that, but now, here, with the switch and all – I feel like I pretty much HAVE to to ensure my survival.
Laura [to Theo]: So long as you don’t vote me out I’ll go with you for anyone.
*As they talk, Wayne approaches*
Wayne [to Theo]: Am I going?
Theo [to Wayne] (laughing): Why do you guys assume I even have a clue?
Wayne [to Theo]: Because you’re the type of guy who looks like the leader – you’re bound to have a clue.
Theo [to Wayne]: I have an idea, but I’m not sure how I’m going to vote.
Wayne [to Theo]: How are the others thinking of voting?
Theo [to Wayne]: It’s down to the two of you, but – hey, look, don’t get put off by that. You’ve both got a good chance because I’m not committed to anything yet and I don’t have any intention of going along with Tiffany and her plans.
Last night it just bugged the crap out of me when Tiffany comes up to me and starts talking about how we have to keep ZAPOLYA strong and get rid of the two BOBALNA people first. I mean, I know she’s thinking and what not, but why give these people we barely even know the shaft?
Wayne [to Theo]: So who is the weakest person here?
Laura [to Theo]: I’m not weak, I just haven’t been able to show how strong I actually am yet.
Wayne [to Theo]: What about Delilah? She’s not going to be able to help a lot, is she?
Theo [to Wayne]: Nah, she was in beauty pageants, they’re bred to compete – this is cake for her.
Wayne [to Theo]: Then what about Jamie?
Theo [to Wayne]: It sounds sexist, but I’m apprehensive of getting rid of a male right now.
Laura [to Wayne]: Then why don’t we just get rid of Tiffany?
Theo [to Laura]: I don’t know – she’s really strong.
Right now I’ve been working on getting Theo to vote out Tiffany with us. I don’t know if he’s going to go along with it or not, but I really hope he does. She’s one of our weakest and getting rid of her will secure both Wayne and I another three days.
Wayne [to Theo]: I think we should give some more consideration to Delilah. If Tiffany is so strong, what does Delilah really bring?
Theo [to Wayne]: Nah, man, she’s too nice and she hasn’t been weak in the challenges. You’re just going off of appearances on her.
Wayne has REALLY started to bug the crap out of me. He’s constantly poking at you, trying to find out information, and it really sucks. Honestly, I’d rather vote him out than almost anybody on this tribe. He has shown he does poorly at the challenges, he’s VERY snippity and snide, making rude comments, stuff like that, and now – now he’s pretty much telling me who to vote for. No. Sorry, but it’s not gonna happen. It’s between him and somebody else in my mind right now. I don’t know – I’ll have to talk things over with Jamie before we leave, but Wayne is a definite possibility.
*The newly formed BOBALNA tribe makes their way into the Tribal Council area. First Theo, then Laura, Jamie, Delilah, Wayne, and Tiffany. They all place their torches behind them and quickly sink into their Council thrones. After everyone is seated, Jeff begins to speak*
Jeff Probst: First of all, Congratulations to everyone on making it this far into the game. You’ve made it past our first twist – but keep in mind, there are many more along the path to the million dollars. Jamie, how are things working out on your new tribe?
Jamie [to Jeff]: Things are pretty good, you know? We’re all still pretty new, but I think we’ve got each other’s name’s down for the most part.
Jeff Probst: Have you formed alliances with any new people?
Jamie [to Jeff]: Well, seeing as how we only gained Laura and Wayne there wasn’t really a whole variety of people to chose from, you know, so it’s just like we’re getting to know these new people that happen to have been switched to our tribe.
Jeff Probst: But you were switched to their tribe…
Jamie [to Jeff]: Whatever. It’s basically the old tribe with a new name and two different people.
Jeff Probst: Laura, how does that make you feel? Do you really feel like you’re the new guys and they’re the veterans or is it the other way around?
Laura [to Jeff]: I’m actually kind of upset with the way he, like, the way he said the things he said, you know what I mean – he made it seem like he’s running the show here.
Jeff Probst: So does what he just said change your opinion of him?
Laura [to Jeff]: No, I, like, people, you just get these ideas of how people, like, how they really are in your mind…and, it, like, he has lived up to what I thought he would be.
Jeff Probst: Tiffany, would you say old tribal lines play a part in the way you’re voting tonight?
Tiffany [to Jeff]: You know what? I’m not going to lie about this. Laura and I were having a conversation earlier, and she asked me to form an alliance with her…
Laura [to Tiffany]: Umm, yeah, and I would appreciate it if you kept that to yourself…
Tiffany [to Jeff]: And I told her, you know, I think we could’ve been great friends if we started out on the same tribe together, but – when push comes to shove, this is a game about advancing as far as you can – and I’m not going to advance in an alliance with one person – and you know, I’m sorry Laura – you’re a great girl, but it really does come down to old loyalties.
Jeff Probst: Now Tiffany, that was a pretty direct thing to say there – is it safe to assume that you’re voting for Laura tonight?
Tiffany [to Jeff]: You can assume I’m voting for Laura, if you’d like, but you’ll be wrong.
Jeff Probst: But you will be voting for a former BOBALNA member?
Tiffany [to Jeff]: Yes.
*Wayne rolls his eyes in the background*
Jeff Probst: Well that narrows it down to one person…
Tiffany [to Jeff]: Yes, Wayne.
Jeff Probst: So, is there anything you’d like to say to him before you vote for him?
Tiffany [to Wayne]: You know, it sucks that it ended up like this – but, it’s the way it works out sometimes. I’m sorry that it had to come out like this, and I think you’re a really fun guy to be around – but you just need to lighten up.
*Theo nods in the background*
Jeff Probst: Now Theo, you’re nodding your head as you’re saying this…are you planning on casting a vote for Wayne as well?
Theo [to Jeff]: I don’t think any of us are sure at this point what’s going to happen. I honestly couldn’t tell you whose leaving tonight, but I do know who I’m voting for.
Wayne [to Theo]: Come on, man – you can’t tell me you’re gonna vote me out so you can be left on a tribe with a bunch of weaklings.
Theo [to Wayne]: I didn’t say a word about who I’m voting for, so…just calm down.
Laura [to Jeff] (almost teary eyed): You know, Jeff – it sucks, because I’ve been working my ass off, doing things I’ve never even, like, imagined doing before, and now I’m being told it’s all going to end because ‘sorry, you’re from the wrong team!’ That’s a bunch of crap…
Jeff Probst: So plead your case!
Laura [to Jeff and everyone else]: Keep me! I’m a good, loyal, trustworthy person who you can rely upon to be a hard worker and have a team spirit. Sorry Wayne, but I won’t give up in challenges, and I have every intention of keeping my performance on full blast. This game means so much to me!
Tiffany [to Laura]: Laura, I feel bad about what I said – I didn’t mean for it to come off as rough as it did.
Laura [to Tiffany]: But the point is still there! If I’m not gone tonight I’m gone the next time we’re here – it’s just what happens!
Tiffany [to Laura]: I wish it could be different…
Laura [to Tiffany]: But it’s not…it’s not…
Jeff Probst: You’re all very connected to this game, but unfortunately it is time to vote. Delilah, you’re up first.
WAYNE. You act like you’re a real tough guy, but y’a only really care abou’ lookin’ good in front of t’a camera. I wish t’ings could be different – I’m soundin’ like Tiffany now (laughing), but – you jus’ don’ care enough about team, and t’at’s what we need right now.
TIFFANY. (rolling his eyes) I wish things could be different.
TIFFANY. Screw that ‘I wish things could be different’ bullshit. You’re a good person, but so am I, and so are a lot of other people out here. We deserve a chance based on our merits, not tribal stuff.
WAYNE. I’ve been impressed with your work ethic, but you really should’ve applied more of that to the challenges. Best of luck in real life!
_______. Your time is up.
_______. You have no idea how much it sucks for me to have to do this, because you are SO strong in our challenges, and I have underestimated you at times, but – I’d just feel like a fool if I voted for anybody else. You’re a good person – keep your head up high, and don’t sweat the small stuff. You’re very paranoid…get that under control. I’m surprised you were able to make it through the first part of Council without having a panic attack. I guess you just got a little to sure of yourself.
*Theo sits back in his throne and Jeff begins to speak*
Jeff Probst: I’ll go tally the votes…
*2 minutes pass as Jeff tallies the votes*
Jeff Probst: Once the votes have been read the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. You’ve come a long way – now let’s read the votes…
*Tiffany, nervous before, stares angrily into the fire*
*Wayne laughs to himself as Jeff continues…*
Tiffany [to everyone] (pissed): I knew it!
Third person voted out of the BOBALNA tribe…
Fourth person voted out of the game…
Jeff Probst: Tiffany, you’ll have to bring me your torch.
*Tiffany slaps her knees and stands. After hugging Delilah she grabs her torch from behind her and walks over to Jeff whom awaits her with his snuffer*
Jeff Probst: Tiffany, the tribe has spoken *snuff*.
Tiffany [to everyone]: Sucks to go out like this, but it’s been a pleasure.
Delilah [to Tiffany] (bawling): Bye Tiff!
Tiffany [to Delilah in particular]: Stay strong guys.
*Tiffany walks down the dark carpet led path and makes her way into the darkness…*
Jeff Probst: This Tribal Council goes to show you that you can never be too sure of what’s going to happen. Power switches from person to person very quickly – remember that. You can head back to camp.
Next Time On SURVIVOR…
Delilah feels the sting of the surprising Tribal Council…
Delilah [to Theo]: T’eo, five minutes befo’e Tribal Council you promised me we we’re goin’ to get rid’a Wayne – YOU were t’a one who tol’ us t’a vot’ for him!
Wayne [to Theo] (from the background): Is that true, Theo?
Theo [to Wayne] (lying): What – no…no, of course it’s not.
The Survivors are forced to face their fears in the most dangerous challenge ever attempted on the show…
*A shot of Charlene running up a flight of burning stairs*
Charlene (shouting): I – I can’t find it – I can’t see ANYTHING!
And one Survivor’s journey finally ends at another surprising Tribal Council…
_____, the tribe has spoken.
Tiffany’s Final Words:
You know, I can sit here and talk about how crappy it is to be taken by surprise at Tribal Council like that, but what would be the point? I did it to myself by getting too cocky towards the end. I was worried for 99% of the game and the second I let my guard down it hits me like a ton of bricks – but you know what? Shame on me for letting my guard down. You have to be on top of everyone and everything 100% of the time in this game if you plan on succeeding, and I wasn’t able to do that. I don’t hold any grudges with any of you all, because I had an amazing time out here. Wayne, I wish you could’ve finished up and ate your shit quicker than Norm, but – hey, shit happens, right? Theo, you told me you weren’t going to lie to me, but I never trusted you anyways, so this doesn’t surprise me. Laura, you seem nice, and I’m glad you get to go farther – you’re just kind of weak to me. Delilah, you’re a true friend, but don’t do like I did and let your guard down – keep it up all the time. I know you can do it, because these people mustn’t be half as tough as beauty contestants, but…you know what you’re doing. Umm…I don’t have much more to say. Keep up the good work, everybody. Don’t get too hungry. Win lots of challenges. Take home Immunity. Last as long as you can and I’ll see you all later!
