Story

Night 27

S39 lauren t
Lauren

Tonight's double tribal shows you cannot be too comfortable in this game. Aaron has proven to be one of the biggest threats, so it was important to eliminate the threat, but I am super nervous because I don't know what's going on at the other tribal, and Missy's playing so hard, and my biggest fear is that the girls are gonna align to get Tommy because Tommy's my number one in the game, [...] and then I see Tommy's big lanky body climbing up the stairs, and a rush of calm just came over me. I'm like, "Okay", and now it's more of a question of where we go from here.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

Tonight was incredible. I just want to do a happy dance because my top two targets went home, Aaron and Missy. Both of them were gunning for me, both gone in one swoop, and I didn't have to use my idol. I still have it here in my trusty little armpit, so I could not be happier. The game has just opened completely wide for me, and now I finally have some options!

S39 elizabeth t
Elizabeth

So [...] I feel a little stranded right now because my closest allies are gone. They offered me a lot of protection, and now I don't have that from either of them, [...] but now with them being gone, I am on my own, and I am going to do what I have to do to stay here.


Day 28

S39 tommy t
Tommy

Last night, I went from the most nervous I've been in my life to probably the happiest! Not only was I safe, but blindsiding Missy was a huge move on my résumé.

S39 dean t
Dean

Karishma is the ultimate goat. I've been wanting her out for a long, long time, and without Missy and Aaron as the two biggest threats in front of me, it's only a matter of time before myself, Tommy, and Elizabeth in any particular order are targeted.

S39 dean t
Dean

Right now, it's like, "Attention! Goat number one Karishma, reporting for duty! Attention! Goat number two Noura, reporting for duty!" And then they all end up assembling the goat army to knock out one of these big threats: Dean, Elizabeth, Tommy. It cannot happen.

S39 tommy t
Tommy

Dean's theory about goats is something I definitely subscribe to, but Elizabeth is an Olympic athlete. Also, Elizabeth wrote my name down, so Elizabeth is going to be on my radar, and she might have to go next.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

My initial thought is I'm hoping it's me! I haven't been there yet. I could certainly use an advantage, but before I can even take a breath to say a word, Lauren chimes in and is like, "I want to go!" [...] People who think they run this tribe have spoken up and decided who's going, [...] but if I were to say I don't agree, that would just put a bigger target on my back, so I have to take a step back and keep my mouth closed.

S39 lauren t
Lauren

Island of the Idols is definitely a part of the game that I'm missing, and I'm so excited that I'm about to experience it!

S39 lauren t
Lauren

If anyone knows the tribe, it's me. I am such a people-person, and that's how I've figured out who to align myself with, but also the odds aren't that great to choose one out of nine, and if I don't pull it off, then I lose my vote at the next tribal, and worst case scenario, I could get voted out.

S39 rob t
Rob

Lauren seems to have a good grasp on all of her tribemates. That's the most important thing! Get a horse and go with it, and the fact that there's an eat or play in this challenge only helps Lauren. [...] The more people she can get to sit out, the better her odds get as long as her horses aren't the ones grazing.

S39 dean t
Dean

Jamal gave me this thing. When he returned from Island of the Idols, he presented a Legacy Advantage to myself.

S39 dean t
Dean

Is it fake? Is it real? I don't know. The tribe doesn't know, but I think it's real. It says, "This serves as an Immunity Idol. It can only be played with nine people left or six people left." We're at nine right now, so while everyone was snoozin', I went and got my little Picasso on and made myself a little fake Legacy Advantage. The idea here is this, keep this potentially real one with me, use my fake one in the next Tribal Council. Does it look absolutely exactly, exactly alike? Absolutely not, so it's a bit risky, but if I can get by with that, this one will still be left in my pocket, and I will be potentially safe at six if it is real. I'm excited to play a little bit and, and be a little schemey. I feel like I've been under the radar, but this is my chance to kind of, you know, shake things up a bit and get a little, get a little shifty with it.

S39 lauren t
Lauren

When I come back from Island of the Idols, I do believe there is work to be done. I need to convince my tribe to basically eat at the next challenge, [...] and I need to convince the two people that I bet on, Elizabeth and Noura, that they need to compete, which are two of my horses in the race.

S39 lauren t
Lauren

The lesson that I learned from Rob and Sandra was situational awareness. It's just like perfect for me. I study people. I observe people, and I feel confident in who's going to sit out and eat breakfast and who's going to compete, [...] but the only person I plan on being completely honest with here is Tommy. Tommy is my wingman in this game.

S39 tommy t
Tommy

In this game, you want the idol, so right now I'm Lauren's wingman. I'm going to do whatever I can to make sure Lauren gets that idol, [...] so I want to get as many people I can to not play, so what are we going to talk about all day long right now? Pancakes, syrup, bacon, coffee, and the more I talk about it, the more Lauren talks about it, the less people to compete against Noura or Elizabeth.

S39 janet t
Janet

I always feel like I have to play, but it's gonna be hard to smell those pancakes and bacon.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

Mimosa's like my favorite drink in the whole world! If I could go to the bar and order any kind of drink, I would order mimosas. That's how much I love mimosas!

S39 elaine t
Elaine

I'm still up in the air. I don't want to take the chance of gettin' voted out just for freakin' bacon!

S39 lauren t
Lauren

It's important that as many people sit out and eat breakfast at this challenge, but more importantly, I need to make sure Elizabeth and Noura compete, but knowing Noura as a vegan, she's not going to want to sit down and eat breakfast, [...] and of course Elizabeth, her two greatest allies were voted out, and I know she's going to fight tooth and nail to win. [...] People do seem to be buying it, but just got to see. This is a huge deal! This is going to change my game one way or another, and I'm ready! I'm ready for my game to be accelerated! Bring on the bacon, and bring on the Immunity Challenge! Let's do this!


Day 29

No footage from Day 29 was aired.

Day 30

S39 janet t
Janet

I decided to eat, and it was probably one of the scariest things that I've decided to do. I have to trust my alliance that they're not going to throw me to the wolves, but Elizabeth dropping really surprised me, so now I think that the smart decision would be to get rid of Elizabeth because she's a physical threat.

S39 tommy t
Tommy

Right now, it's either Karishma, the easy vote, or Elizabeth, the Olympic athlete that can win everything. [...] At the challenge, Karishma lasted forty-five seconds. You can get her out whenever you want, but Elizabeth can go on an immunity run at any time. [...] Why would I vote out someone that I can easily beat at the end, or you can take the shot at Elizabeth while you can?

S39 elaine t
Elaine

If I had my way, I want Karishma to go home. She's the Karishma with nine lives. She's almost been voted out five or six times, but if my alliance decides that Elizabeth is next, I can't shoot myself in my foot just to save her because it's too late for that. I don't want to damage my own game to keep her in.

S39 elizabeth t
Elizabeth

So at today's challenge, I blew it. My name has been on the chopping block the last three days, and it's a very easy opportunity for all these people to take a big threat like myself out of this game. I don't have an idol. I don't have the Immunity Necklace, and I'm just praying to the Survivor gods that Karishma does not have an idol tonight.

S39 noura t
Noura

We get back to the camp, and Karishma is just like, "Ahhh" on the hammock, and I'm telling her to drink water because I know she's not in great shape. Anyway, I literally scoop up her bag, and I just take it to the beach, and I tell her to come with me, and we go through it to see if there is anything in it. There's a crumbled up note, there's two things that have shells on them, [...] and then Elizabeth's like "These are both nothing", so I've seen from my own eyes that she doesn't have anything, and for me the reaction of Elizabeth and Karishma is enough for me to know with my own gut feeling, they don't have anything.

S39 dan t
Dan

Elizabeth is on the outs, but if something crazy happens tonight, then we're splitting the vote. It's really Elizabeth, but with Karishma, Karishma's supposed to think it's a split between Janet and Elizabeth. She's like, "Oh, okay", and she gets up and immediately walks over to Elizabeth, but then Lauren comes to sit with me, and she watches Karishma talk to Elizabeth.

S39 lauren t
Lauren

Karishma does not have allies in this game, so she's a free agent, and those people always are dangerous because they can go either way. I'm very observant. I'm reading lips. I'm picking up vibes. I'm looking at eye contact.

S39 dan t
Dan

Lauren sees her lips say, "Dan is after you," so it's just, it's maddening.

S39 dan t
Dan

Karishma is doing everything wrong you're supposed to do. That was it for me. I feel like we can't allow Karishma to go any further, but it might be too late to worry about switching up and complicating a vote, especially at this point.

S39 dean t
Dean

I agree with Dan about Karishma, so in my mind, it makes complete sense. I was under a little stress seeing the goat army assemble, but if there's people on the board to disassemble it before it gets rolling, it's music to my ears, and I hope Karishma is the vote going home tonight.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

I was absolutely talking about Dan, but Dan has no right to tell me that I'm not allowed to talk to Elizabeth or I need babysitting! That pisses me off! However, even though I would hate to Elizabeth because she could have certainly been a number to make a big move for me, but at this point and time, I feel like me voting differently is not going to make a difference. I have the Immunity Idol sitting in my pocket, and nobody knows about it. Now here's the issue that I have. Hmm. Playing it correctly and making it count, I have to weigh that against possibly being voted out with an idol in my pocket.

Final Words

S39 elizabeth bw
Elizabeth

I made a million dollar mistake today at the challenge. So I'm upset. But as an Olympian, I gave it my all, and any time you get to play Survivor and make it 30 days, that in itself is an incredible feat. So I think in my own way, I have gotten a little bit of gold inside of me just for doing this entire experience. So bittersweet right now.
