Story

Night 28

S40 jeremy t.png
Jeremy

Tribal Council was crazy. Ben tried to make a move on me, but Sophie went to the Edge. So there's hard feelings. Ben is pissed. He's not even talking to me. It's so crazy. He's such a child. Like, grow up, Ben. Come on, man. The game goes up and down. Just chill out and let's play.

S40 sarah t.png
Sarah

This was Tony's idiotic move. But I told myself, "Sarah, just keep your cool and don't be pissed."

S40 sarah t.png
Sarah

To have Tony come up with this all alone, I'm absolutely infuriated with him. It's ridiculous. It's a two million dollar game. What are you doing, dude?! We were fine! And now do we even have the numbers? You think we do, but you don't know if we do.

S40 tony t.png
Tony

Wow, man. Usually, you blindside somebody, you go back to camp, you hash it all out, and everybody's like, "It's okay. It's all good." Not this time. This time, it's like deep wounds, man. But, come on, give me a break. I'm playing the game, too, you know? This is war. Stop crying. Put your man panties on and go to war.

S40 ben t.png
Ben

Tony's telling me about all his advantages and all his idols, so he's gaining trust. But I don't know if I trust him, because he's blindsided me hugely.

S40 ben t.png
Ben

I still want Jeremy out next. A) He is a challenge beast, right? And B) He is a jury threat. He's gonna get all the votes. Like, there's just no way for me to work with Jeremy, so I am not talking to Jeremy right now, and I don't want to talk with Jeremy right now.


Day 29

S40 tony t.png
Tony

I made a big power move, which was blindsiding Sophie. The backlash was unbelievable, so I think I'm in trouble. My wife told me, "Tony, this time you can't play wild. You can't play crazy. You can't play flashy." But I got the itch, and now this is the time for another undercover operation. In my first season, season 28 in Cagayan, I made a spy shack, and it worked. And then, Game Changers, my second season, I made the underground bunker. It was a failure, but it was fun. Right now, my spying has evolved, and now I'm up in the air. It's called the spy nest. It's like a bird nest that I perch myself on, just like a bird, and I sit there and I wait to hear conversations that are going on. The only person that knows I'm undercover is my partner, Sarah.

S40 sarah t.png
Sarah

If we were in the real world and Tony and I were partners, one of us would be fired, okay? Tony's back to the old Tony, and it's nonstop-- go, go, go. And he doesn't let up. He's got my back and I got his back and we're not gonna turn on each other. But if he's not willing to back off a little, then he's gonna get himself voted out.

S40 kim t.png
Kim

Last night was emotional and a little bit crazy. And it's super clear people are thinking Jeremy's gonna go next. But, hell no. I mean, I'm not doing that. For me, it's really obvious that Tony and Sarah are a problem right now. But I still have a relationship with Sarah that can be salvaged. I'd so much rather see Tony go than Sarah. And I'm done with the sitting around, hoping that I'm on the right side of the votes.

S40 kim t.png
Kim

This is by far the riskiest move I've ever had to make, but I have to do something. I mean, I have to turn this around or go out trying.

S40 michele t.png
Michele

Tony has been running the show, and we've been left out of the loop. We've been made fools of. And I think a lot of us are feeling that way right now. This game is about power. And this seems like a perfect opportunity to gain a little bit of control in this game and take out Tony.


S40 ethan t.png
Ethan

Oh, my God. I don't want to do a tremendous effort challenge.

S40 rob t.png
Rob

The mad dash was on. Out of everybody here, I think I'm pretty physical. I feel like I have an edge in this challenge.

S40 danni t.png
Danni

I knew this challenge is gonna really, really suck. It's going to be a marathon, just like the log challenge was. And so I knew I wanted to pace myself.

S40 rob t.png
Rob

I got out to the lead the first couple laps. It was probably not a good idea if I'm setting the pace. I should probably slow down and let somebody else take the lead.

S40 parvati t.png
Parvati

The stakes are really high for this challenge. Only six people are gonna be able to win tokens. This is pretty stiff competition. Wendell's really strong. Tyson's an endurance athlete. Yul's really strong. Natalie is a superhero.

S40 tyson t.png
Tyson

It was more brutal than I expected it to be. And when I see how fast these girls are going, I'm thinking, "I can't, even if I wanted to, keep up with them."

S40 adam t.png
Adam

This does not suit my strengths. Like, I have never, ever been a good runner. People are passing me left and right. I'm in last place already.

S40 ethan t.png
Ethan

It was incredibly difficult, and the tide started coming in. And then your feet are in ankle-high in-in ocean water.

S40 rob t.png
Rob

I slipped and fell and cracked my elbow. I just felt it. Like, I tried to shake it off, but, like... I knew I was done. That was it for me. I was toast.

S40 tyson t.png
Tyson

Natalie and Sophie lapped every single other person at least twice.

S40 sophie t.png
Sophie

I was back and forth with Natalie the whole challenge. And Natalie's a beast, but I just kept running the whole time.

S40 natalie t.png
Natalie

Sophie was in the lead for a majority of the time, but I knew that I had a little bit more in the tank. I just pushed and I was like, "Why not beat her?" And I beat her. That was fun.

S40 yul t.png
Yul

To my big surprise, I ended up in third place.

S40 parvati t.png
Parvati

I am so elated that I finished, and I finished with Tyson, an ultra-endurance professional athlete. I was like, "Yeah! I still got it."

S40 danni t.png
Danni

Once I got to those final coconuts, I'm like, "Okay, here I am. Pick up the pace. You've got to fight. You're further out than you thought you were. Go for it. You've got to go for it to get those tokens."

S40 wendell t.png
Wendell

I knew Danni was the next person behind me. She was in seventh place. I was in sixth place. And then she was gaining on me.

S40 danni t.png
Danni

I just kept running and picking up the pace and thought I could catch Wendell, and I started to close the gap on him. Unfortunately, I started out way too slow and just couldn't gain enough ground. And I finished seventh, just one short of winning two Fire Tokens.

S40 rob t.png
Rob

I said I wasn't gonna care if I didn't win, you know? But I do.

S40 rob t.png
Rob

I feel like it was important for me to finish. I didn't want to feel like I was quitting. That's what makes this game so good, is that it is so hard.

S40 amber t.png
Amber

It was hard to see him still going to get those coconuts well after it was finished. That shows you that he's not a quitter... and that he's gonna keep on fighting.


S40 nick t.png
Nick

The more people are fighting, the more there is a war, the more crossfire and friendly fire going on, the more I can really crank it up. Now is the time to start trying to figure out who I want to sit at the end with and finding a way to get everybody else out.

S40 nick t.png
Nick

I'm done just making it one step farther. I got my eye on the prize at this point, and that's why I have to make big moves. I have to do something to stand out.

S40 nick t.png
Nick

In my opinion, there's three people in this game still that certainly beat me at the end, at least three. That's Jeremy, Sarah, and Tony. We'll have to get rid of 'em.

S40 sarah t.png
Sarah

Sophie went out with an idol. So now it's gonna be out here. I need to save myself. If I don't find it, if Tony doesn't find it, we could be in hot water.

S40 denise t.png
Denise

There's been a mad dash already, and there's a lot of hands out here digging. There may be another Hidden Immunity Idol in the mix, which complicates everything all over again. Everybody's looking through the dirt and the cobwebs and digging around trees. We really want to get Tony out. So we need to get the Hidden Immunity Idol before Tony so that he doesn't have something else up his sleeve.

S40 tony t.png
Tony

I saw him try to sneak it from me. Hello? Ben? I'm right next to you, man. What are you doing? I-I'm watching you try to hide the idol.

S40 ben t.png
Ben

I found the idol. And the first reaction is, "Oh. Oh, no. Got to turn it around. Don't let anybody see." And then Tony's standing right there. He's like, "Come on, Ben."

S40 tony t.png
Tony

You found the idol in front of me. You're trying to hide it in front of me, man. Y- are you okay?

S40 ben t.png
Ben

All right, I found it. You know? He's like, "Why did you do that to me, man?" I got caught red-handed. Gold-handed, right?

S40 ben t.png
Ben

You know, I was trying to hide it from Tony, right? Because I barely trust Tony right now. Kim wants to take out Tony, but Tony has an idol. So I need him to be comfortable. He thinks he has me in his pocket, and that's perfect, because I need to figure out what route I'm gonna take-- whether or not to go with Kim and start targeting Tony or if I can work with the guy, right?


S40 tony t.png
Tony

What?! I won three in a row. Back-to back-to back. It's amazing, 'cause anything can happen. I could've sneezed at that moment. Mosquito could've bit me in the eyeball. So, thanks, Nick. One token for an Immunity Necklace? I'll take it. That's a bargain.


S40 kim t.png
Kim

The Immunity Challenge was a son of a "B." My plan has been majorly foiled to blindside Tony tonight.

S40 kim t.png
Kim

I'm so mad that he's won three immunities in a row. He has tons of Fire Tokens. He's driving me crazy in the game.

S40 nick t.png
Nick

We'll have to put our plan on the back burner. I tried to do my best to win that Immunity Challenge, and I was falling off. At least I get one of Tony's Fire Tokens, peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. And Jeremy goes home, anyways, and there's no harm. So I think it's a win-win.

S40 michele t.png
Michele

I am distraught. I've been close with Jeremy since Day 1 in this game. He's kind of been, like, my true family out here. But... I don't know how we get out of this pickle.

S40 tony t.png
Tony

I just found this news out. Kim was chirping in everybody's ear, "Maybe it's Tony's time to go." And it's a big deal to me.

S40 tony t.png
Tony

I'm talking to Nick, and he's looking at me, and he's fumbling his words. I keep asking him, "Nick, what's going on?" He's always lost. Like, come on, man. Nick is lying to me right in my face.

S40 tony t.png
Tony

So, now I'm 100% worried about Kim trying to get these lower-tier threats together. So, if Jeremy goes home, we're screwed, 'cause the ladies are gonna stick together and possibly use Nick.

S40 michele t.png
Michele

Everybody is voting Jeremy, and I don't think that I can shift the tides and save him. I have to write Jeremy's name down, but it doesn't mean that I can't try to throw him a bone to help him out.

S40 jeremy t.png
Jeremy

He can't even talk to me. And I could still see him, like, stewing. Like, okay, what do I do now?

S40 jeremy t.png
Jeremy

I don't feel in control of my game. I have the 50/50 idol in my pocket. If all else fails, I can use that. But it could be an idol, it could be nothing. It's a flip of the coin. I might not be coming back to camp tonight.

S40 jeremy t.png
Jeremy

This is the part of the war that's gonna get really ugly. This is gonna be more like friendly fire.


S40 kim t.png
Kim

The feeling of being voted out was weird, but I'm not sorry for trying to gather the troops to take out Tony. I think it was the right move, and the game's not over. I won't step down for peanut butter on the battle back.
