Bikal showed their dominance in the pre-merge challenges (only losing two before the tribe switch), and is know for the rise of a new Stealth R Us. However, one castaway's meltdown negatively impacted the tribe, and Bikal's post-switch variation became too weak to win a challenge against the new Gota tribe. Their tribe color is purple.
