Dan Foley, on what it's like on being a blue collar worker


Escameca, informally known as the "Blue Collars", is a tribe from Survivor: Worlds Apart. Defined by its members who are in the working class, Jeff Probst branded them as ones who "follow the rules".

Escameca is known for their work ethic and challenge dominance for the whole pre-merge, but tensions between the Blue Collars grew worse and worse. Despite this, many Blue Collars made it very far in the merge. Their tribe color is blue.

Tribe History

The Blue Collars

At the beginning, unity and pride were the two words that best described the "Blue Collar" tribe, to a point Lindsey Cascaddan passionately claimed that the winner will come from her tribe. True to their definition, they immediately established a shelter and sparked fire, and not even a choice between a bigger sack of beans and a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol bothered them. Though the tribe did not choose to take the idol clue, politicking still began early as Rodney Lavoie Jr. used the tragic death of his sister as leverage to make an early alliance with the women. Rodney seemingly cemented his pact with the women as Dan Foley began rubbing them the wrong way with his overtly blunt personality. The Blue Collar however won the Day 3 Reward/Immunity Challenge in second place, winning them flint.

By Day 4, in-fighting began marring the tribe. Dan's dry sense of humor was perceived by the women as social ineptitude and did not water down their initial impression of him. On the other hand, Mike Holloway's constant barking of orders also wore down the tribe. Mike felt that the tribe was lazing around and not working as hard at camp as they should, while Rodney and the women met his acts as a mere obsession, believing they carried their weight at camp and deserved rest and recreation time. This conflict however was unresolved as the Blue Collars won the second Reward/Immunity Challenge, which also won them a fishing spear.
