Story

Night 16

S40 parvati t
Parvati

Getting voted out before the merge-- that's so lame. I've never done that before. But Ethan's over here. Rob's over here. And much to my... utmost joy... Sandra's here. Sandra getting voted out was a little, small consolation to my horrible night.

S40 sandra t
Sandra

It sucks that I played with my emotions. I said I would just play a strategic game. But, in hindsight, at the end of the day, I'm still human, just like everybody else. I have feelings. I felt something for Denise, and it just bit me in the butt.

S40 sandra t
Sandra

I have no interest in running up the mountain for a little scoop of rice, sleeping in a raggedy shelter, being bitten by rats. I don't want to deal with it. I'm not very good at the challenges-- everybody knows that. So I feel I would be wasting my time just for an opportunity to go back into the game, which I'm not gonna succeed at. I got voted out, and now it's time for me to go. I've gained a lot because of Survivor. It has changed my life. It's given me opportunities that I might not otherwise have had. I'm happy to go into retirement and know that I did the best I could with what I had. At the end of the day, I'm still the queen, and I'll always stay the queen.


S40 yul t
Yul

Tribal Council kind of sucked. Wendell got into it with Parvati, which was completely unnecessary. And then, at one point, he basically said, "Make me an offer. Tell me who to vote out, and I'm open to working with you." And I'm sitting there, thinking, like, "What the hell are you doing?!" He created a lot more drama, a lot more uncertainty, and almost kind of blew things up for no reason.

S40 yul t
Yul

After our conversation, I just gotta watch him. I'll see how he-- what he does in future Tribal Councils.


Day 17

S40 wendell t
Wendell

Michele played a few years before me. She did very well. I played two years ago, and I did pretty well, too. Let me play my game. If you want to put me on some kind of leash and tell me how to play my game, I might turn around and bite you.

S40 michele t
Michele

Wendell acted extremely defensive and confrontational. I'm a little bit surprised, because I gave Wendell one of Parvati's Fire Tokens to repair some of our relationship, but it didn't work. I think he thinks that it's gonna be me and him always, until the end, and that I'm gonna blindly stay true to that. But the reality is I don't want to move forward in this game with Wendell.


S40 ethan t
Ethan

Life on Edge of Extinction is a battle. Every day's a battle with the elements and nature. Every day's a battle with my own personal struggle of: "Why am I here? Why am I sticking it out?" and how to exist in this in-between world. So it's just... it's depressing. I feel defeated. I just feel there's, like, no hope. We got to find that hope someplace, because, without it, you're just gonna destroy yourself.

S40 ethan t
Ethan

I can talk to Parvati. I feel really comfortable with her, so that's a big help, because, you know, she keeps me strong. It gives me a little bit of inspiration to keep going. I want a chance to win, get back in the game, and have a shot at that two million dollars. It's not out of the question. Look, I've come back from the edge of extinction twice due to my health, so I know what that's like. I came to play Survivor. I want to give it a hundred percent and see it through to the end, because it's important to me. So I gotta, like, pick myself up and kind of come back stronger.

S40 tyson t
Tyson

We got another clue on Edge of Extinction, and we each got our own clue.

S40 tyson t
Tyson

And this is what it said: "Scattered on top of the island, there are four Fire Tokens. Follow the trails to their natural ends, then the search begins. There is no limit on how many Fire Tokens any one player can find." The second that got finished being read, there really was an all-out sprint. We left the rice on the fire.

S40 rob t
Rob

Immediately, the race was on. I took off first and just sprinted. I've been running these paths for the past three days, up and down this mountain, everywhere. So I thought if I could get there first, I'd have an edge.

S40 tyson t
Tyson

Boston Rob just takes off in a full sprint. But me, knowing he is a portly chap, figure I have time to make up ground when I need to as soon as it hits the uphill. So I sprint up to the dead ending that I'm most familiar with, and I immediately find a Fire Token, 'cause I am amazing.

S40 tyson t
Tyson

The consensus is that the other three Fire Tokens were never found by anyone.

S40 rob t
Rob

The thing is all of these people have no idea that I have the Fire Tokens. They believe that I wasn't the one to the first of any trails... but I was, bro. I followed the trail that ends at the tree. The token's sitting right in the middle of the crux of the tree. I grab it, stick it in my pocket, and run to the next one. Then I make my way up to the small rock. Ethan's already there. I know what the Fire Token wrapping looks like now 'cause I just found one, and I see it sitting right there. I quickly stick it in my pocket and run the other way before he even knows I'm gone. Then I start making my way to the big lookout. I stop at the rock at the left and what do you know, nobody's been there yet and I got my third Fire Token. Three out of four. If we're in the Majors, I'm batting .750. I'm the best that's ever played.


S40 tony t
Tony

Today, I feel like I'm in a good position right now, even without Sandra, who I've been close with, because right now we have two Seles, two old Dakals. I-I'm close with Kim, I'm hoping I'm getting close with Jeremy. So I think we formed a nice bond between the three of us, and I'm just so grateful that Denise pretty much did me a favor by making a flashy move at Tribal, and she took out the queen. She dethroned the queen! She used two idols! So-so that makes her a big target, and that's good news for me, because I need protection in front of me-- I need shields in front of me. So, Denise, in my book, she's... (gives two thumbs up) A-OK.

S40 jeremy t
Jeremy

Tony thinks Denise is, like, growing on... that target echelon. But Tony is clearly still the biggest threat out here. He's still a big name. He's still crazy, wild Tony. I do like Tony, but he is the bigger threat in this game.

S40 kim t
Kim

I feel good with this group of people. It's a bit of an interesting dynamic. Like, I have this relationship with Tony. I love Tony. However, I really feel good with Jeremy and Denise. You know, like, Jeremy and I particularly have a great bond, and I really like Denise a lot as a player. I trust her. I think she's well-meaning. I think we could play well together. So if push came to shove, I think I could be convinced to go with them, at this point. And I haven't been dominating this game. And so I like being in charge of my own fate out here and getting the chance to make new bonds with people. I think it gives me more options.

S40 denise t
Denise

I single handedly took out the queen, and now there's a solid three, I think, that really wants to move forward, with Kim and Jeremy and myself. So it's like everybody comes into Survivor playing a different style and a different way to play. And I know that my way of playing can be viewed under the radar, can be viewed as riding coattails-- however you might look at that. But, hey, there are big targets in very small places, and you better be watching out, you know? Because I am. I'm here to play. I'm here to play, just like everybody else.


S40 sophie t
Sophie

So, for the first time ever on Survivor, I can say that we have leftovers this morning. And I'm hoping that the peanut butter can kind of stick us together, because there is real tension bubbling beneath the surface. The boys are saying, "Where is the Hidden Immunity Idol?" But they have no idea. I have the idol, you know, in my bag.

S40 ben t
Ben

I'm asking Adam if he has the idol, and, you know, he's saying, "No, I don't have it." Okay. Well, let's go looking for the idol.

S40 adam t
Adam

It's just such a charade. I'm convinced that, between Ben and Sarah, they have an idol.

S40 adam t
Adam

It's so obvious to me that they're pretending to look for an idol. I'm not an idiot, guys. I-I can't stand it.

S40 sophie t
Sophie

Adam is convinced that Sarah has the idol. So I told Ben and Sarah everything that Adam says to make sure they don't think that I am-- have some kind of side alliance with Adam.

S40 sarah t
Sarah

I know where the idol is. It's in Sophie's bag. So I say I am going to set this straight.

S40 adam t
Adam

I speculate about Sarah having an idol, so now it's all out in the open. And now I have to do damage control, when I'm convinced that they are the ones that are lying to me. This is ridiculous. There's a chance that I'm wrong and, between Ben and Sarah, they don't have an idol. If I'm wrong, I'll feel like a real idiot. But I-I-- there are few times in Survivor where I've felt as confident about something as I do about this.


Day 18

S40 yul t
Yul

The four of us are tight, but Wendell is a little bit of a showboat. He's a little bit of a trash-talker. And if he had just maintained his focus, that could have made the difference between winning and losing today. So he's basically dug his own grave.


S40 nick t
Nick

I'm so frustrated with Wendell over us losing today. He should be focusing on the puzzle, not showboating, talking trash. We lose this challenge by a second, and if it wasn't for Wendell screwing up the challenge, we would have won. It was my goal to keep this four together to the merge, and if it wasn't for Wendell, we would've done that.

S40 wendell t
Wendell

I think Yul is coming after me. Maybe it's because I talk a little too much in Tribal. It's weird because I thought we were really like-minded. I thought we were locked in. I guess we're not. Me and Michele have been a little wishy-washy, but she's the one that I have the most of a rapport with, so I'm banking on Michele tonight to vote with me, and I'm banking on Nick to do the same.

S40 yul t
Yul

So, an interesting dynamic with the Fire Tokens being a thing this season is that Fire Tokens, we know, have some value. I mean, they're currency. And everyone believes, including me, that they're gonna have more value later on in the game, probably after the merge. So, I came up with a plan.

S40 nick t
Nick

Yul wants to backstab Wendell and get the Fire Tokens that Wendell has. It's definitely kind of a dark, strange situation, and I'm slowly realizing that siding with Yul is super dangerous in-in this game.

S40 michele t
Michele

For this vote, there are pros and cons for who we should vote out tonight, Yul or Wendell. I have been really looking to get Wendell out of this game, because I'm thinking about my past with Wendell and how I've been hurt by him. So I would love some revenge and to go that direction just to make sure that I don't fall for his tricks twice. But it makes sense to get rid of Yul because he's super strategic, and he will probably win at the end of this game. So this vote is so difficult. But I went four years feeling like I might not have deserved to win my first season, and every single day and every decision that I make, I'm proving it, that I deserve it this time, and I deserved it that time.


S40 yul t
Yul

Getting so close to the merge and just literally being a split second away from winning immunity and making it and being blindsided is a bitter pill to swallow. I assume that we'll have an opportunity to battle back soon, and just try to remind myself this is an adventure and I feel lucky to be here.
