Day 1

Starting off, I have an immediate alliance with Johnny and Ayhan. Johnny and I are pals from Secret Story, and Ayhan has played in Koror ORG. So yeah.. Alliances at Day 1 is something I need to survive.. it's time to survive.. just online.

–James



My first thought when I saw the tribe divisions was: Oh hell no! I don't know what these hosts were thinking, but calling a southern lady old is not the right way to get things started! That said, I'm glad I'll be on a tribe with people I ostensibly have more in common with.

–Eva



ok i want to say that these people look like the nicest in the world, but i can smell the fakeness coming out of half of these people. im going to have fun playing them for a long time xD

–Tyler



Well, I am finally here. I've been applying since Alsace and I am finally here. It's really cool...literally lol. Currently, I'm trying to make a good first impression talk to everyone. I was kinda direct with James about working together...It was a quick move but I hope it benefits my game. Having 16 I am already wondering if well have a final 2. Probably yes.

About the first challenge. Kinda feels risky to throw myself out there so early. I want to be utr at least the first days, you know, to look around a little bit. I'm usually good with challenges, but like I said, I don't want to draw any attention on myself so early. This. Is. Important.

–Ayhan



Rhiannon is already annoying me, she is like Wanda Shirk from palau

"i can do this," and "i can do that", "oh, did i mention that i live here" like please, i don't want to sound rude but just stop and keep it real lmao, rhiannnon just seems like someone that is going to ask everyone to work with her brett just added me to an alliance chat with Rhiannon. omg

–Tyler



So here we are on the Baddassøe tribe, which I am the bearded brother to ascend on these infidels. Basically my only strategy is to seem like that one idiot who can't take anything seriously... so pretty much my life with less strategy, I guess.

And already an alliance appears to be in the works, whippee. James and I are playing Secret Story which I am like dominating, so we instantly said "Yo, alliance?" and we're tight for a while. Aren and I are pretty chill too. He likes to overplay but I'm going to mold him into my sheep. Baaaaaa, baaaaaa! And it seems James already has Ayhan locked in. So I'm going to say we're a four, though I'm not completely confident in Ayhan yet. So call me the Svalbard Sultan because I'm soverign, settling for storm They cannot know to conquer, yet already I'm waging wars The battle has erupted, and my daggers are prepared To slit their throats like butter for those who prove unaware The end is near for foes who fight fear from fear For I have come to shatter these bonds out of gear And my reign will prove triumphant until the month has passed Call me Johnny Rockets because I'm off at full blast -Yes, I always do some kind of poem at the end that usually is too cocky. Just a warning.-

–Johnny



holy shit.

W.T.F. Once I saw I was on the younger tribe, I was like "shit". I feel like there are already a bunch playing too hard, too fast. Ali approached my in five minutes, and by no means do I trust her. I don't trust anyone that's more focused on alliances this quickly in the game. And because I'm going back and forth, trying to keep up, I feel like I'm coming across as a little dumb. Ditzy. Stupid, idk. I want to be on good terms with everyone, and not come across as a threat, and because of my vague responses, I don't think anyone has eyes on me at this point.

–Tatianna



I aspire to be the village idiot, and I am not ashamed. :)

–Tatianna



so i am in an alliance chat with brett, rhiannon, and wouter... i give it about 2 days

–Tyler



Alietta


i will say right now, eva is taking way to long to reply to any message i send her. my gut is telling me she is talking to everyone as well

–Tyler



so to sum it all up so far, rhiannon is getting on everyones nerves, eva is getting on my nerves, brett is being too social. This tribe is literally a bundle of love that i will turn on each other in a heartbeat

–Tyler



sorry.

–Tatianna



Y'know, a lot of people describe the game of Survivor like a chess game. I completely disagree with those people. Survivor is WAR - a constant, sinful battle for supremacy. Survivor brings the most evil out of people out of any game. If you cannot accept that, then your throat will be slit before you know it. If somebody has a lot of power, or comes off as threatening, their throat will also be slit by the various cowards who are incapable of ceasing any of their own power. This is why I'm going to try and lay low through the first few rounds - I'm going to play the 'peasant' role. Wait for the opportunity to reveal my inner king. Just know, that sometime in this game, blood shall be spilled.

–Aren



I'm so excited to play! I told my tribe about me going on a holiday and they didn't respond negatively. But still, I'm an easy target if we lose, so I'm worried. I've made an alliance with Wouter since he's from Belgium and we speak the same language. But a two person alliance isn't that useful in a 8 person tribe. I'm also talking with Tyler, he seems nice.

–Bas



So, lets review the first hour of being in Svalbard, I am now a 20 year elder player... I honestly wasn't expecting that gem of irony on day 1…

–Rhiannon



I planned on coming into this game and playing very UTR at the beginning but that went right out the door as I've already aligned myself with multiple people. I initially trusted Tyler the most but he seemed a little too passive when discussing alliances. Rhiannon and I have spoke and I have her back for sure, I am just not sure she has mine 100% as she seems more down with the other female Eva. The person I trust the most would definitely be Chris as we seemed to hit it off and he proposed a day one alliance to me which I accepted.

I do not trust wouter at all, he was added to a group chat between myself, Tyler and Rhiannon and he gave no input. I am going to keep him close for now. Also Bas seems shifty to me, and if things go my way, he should be the first person voted off. Also my tribechat is ridiculous no one really seems interesting or all that intelligent. I am just happy I am on the mature tribe, god forbid I end up on a tribe filled with 15 year old tweens.

–Brett



and now eva has been added to the chat so we can have a majority.... we are saved

–Tyler



Right off the bat, this is insane... I wake up later than everyone else; about 1 AM in the morning in my time-zone... And I've just been SPAMMED by messages that Johnny sent me. Welp, I'm apparently already in an alliance. Johnny, me, Ayhan, this James guy, and apparently we'll add some others later. Here I am, just prayin' that Ailetta is one of those others. I really like her, and I feel like I can trust her going into this game. Although, I cannot allow myself to be too over-trusting. People who play this game lie; it's a given. I must remember that and NEVER - not for ONE MOMENT - let myself slip out of the game.

–Aren



So I've comforted Tatianna who is pretty much playing her first game. Explained some basic stuff to her and befriended her, so she may yet be kinda loyal to me.

Brandon and I have chatted a little bit, he said he'd love to work with me if we lose. So basically, he automated that he was doing it (it was so beyond generic) that I feel like he's going to tell everybody that. Alietta and I have also joked around a little bit, I've joked with Ayhan, Marco's still been offline so no communication there. Aren is officially filled in on the plan so we have a functioning alliance, haha. We have yet to make the chat, though... we'll do it soon. And now I volunteered to the challenge. So here we can see me in action, so hopefully I ain't underperforming. I want to bring home the bacon, not the beef. So let's see how this turns out. In real Survivor, this could be a dumb move, stepping up for some leadership position. Yet here, especially when I'm just joking around this whole time and shiz, will anybody really care, so long as I bring the Baddassøes to victory?

–Johnny



Right away a five person alliance just kind of...comes together. Just by being sociable to three people (Rhi, Tyler, and Brett), I found myself drawn into a solid group of five with Wouter included. It just goes to show how fast things develop and why you should always be friendly to everyone. This is kinda how things always go for me, people just love me!

–Eva



I've been talking to Alietta, and she's kind of like, already talking strategy with me, and asking me to talk to Tatianna and Brandon to 'see what I think'. It's kind of a strange way to align with someone, but the whole Bassoe tribe are stick together just like honey - I wouldn't have a problem aligning with any of these beauties. This is a great tribe. For the first challenge, we need to pick a representative. Johnny kinda nudge nudge wink winked me into voting for him to be the representative, and then BOOM, a few more votes come in like lightning, and there we have it: Johnny is going to be our representative in the challenge. Simple, eh? Just like a magic trick.

–Aren



I'm so excited to be a part of Survivor: Svalbard! Although I'm extremely excited about being a part of the game, I'm also very nervous! My reaction to the old vs young twist is overall positive. I think a twist like this will improve tribe pride and might make us more unified overall, or vice versa, who knows. As far as people I can trust, there is already 1 person in the game I feel I can trust, Alietta. We hit it off real quickly, we are both newbies and felt good vibes from each other. As of right now I think I like all of the members of the tribe and let the games begin!

–Brandon



also, the Bassoe tribe officially picked Johnny to do the challenge, which I think is great because it's not me representing a group of eight people on the first days of the game. It could be beneficial if he wins or loses the challenge, so I'm happy with the decision!

–Brandon



I actually really like my tribe. I think it's a great bunch, but we all know that won't last very long. When we lose that immunity, get ready for the claws to come out

–Alietta



I don't really trust anyone that much in the game. I sort of trust Tatianna, us girls have got to stick together! I'm trying to set my game up so I have a core group of me, Tat, Brandon and Aren. I want Ayhan and Johnny as side votes but not in the core alliance. That leaves Jam and Marco on the outside. Jam hasn't personally but any effort in with genuine conversation, makes me question if he's with someone else...and Marco seems harmless. I very wary of Johnny and I like the idea of blindsiding him...he has approached everyone and is coming off as one of the more confident ones. We'll see how the next few days go

–Alietta


.

So far into this game, the young tribe has been the most stereotypical that you could imagine them: washing each other, frolicking in the water, trying to cut coconuts and looking like dumbasses whilst doing it... It's hilarious. James seems like a pretty cool guy, and he is in my alliance, so that's good. Haven't really had a chance to talk to that Marco dude yet, but he may be in our alliance too. It's still a blur, who that 5th number will be.

Tatianna is really cool. She (or he) is another candidate to be our 5th - but again, still unsure. I personally, would like to work with them, but it's too early to say so far. They're very soft, but I get the vibe that it might just be an act. Brandon... Well, there 'aint much to say about him. I tried PM'ing him, but of course - no reply. That disappointed me, since I was looking forward to starting some conversation with him. Johnny is kinda the ring-leader right now. He's put himself into a position of threat and power, and as I said early, cowards will try to slit the ring-leaders neck, so I should remain as a little guard for him whilst he can use his rather clown-like mouth to get some more people into our alliance. Ayhan, not much to say about him. He's in our alliance though - that's pretty good. Seems like just a normal chap. Me and Alietta have a great bond so far. I really want to go far in this game with her, but ugh, I literally said that I wanted to lay low in my first confessional. Stick to the plan, Aren. You can be friends with her AFTER you've played the game. I'm honestly not enjoying this Johnny alliance too much, but it'd be possibly too big of a move to just desert him and group up with the Tati, Ali, Brandon kinda group. It'd almost guarantee me a likely vote-out if it went wrong; but it's definitely something to consider, especially if I find an idol or two.

–Aren



After awhile, everyone on the wonderful tribe-full-of-prodigies Bassoe tribe fell asleep. Everyone except for me, Tatianna, Johnny and Brandon. I was kinda holding onto a conversation with all three of them, and they're all great people. We all just... Stick together like bees all covered in honey. It's beautiful. Thus far, at least. You never know what'll happen with twists and shit, but so far, I'm super comfortable with everybody on my tribe. We're like a hive.

I just... Can't explain it. I actually feel trust with these people, which I shouldn't. In the game of Survivor, this is such a blasphemous thing to be saying so early on, but there we go, I guess. Looks like the war for supremacy has begun - lets just try not to forget that it's a war, and we're as golden as platinum, since platinum isn't golden at all, and we won't be golden at all either when we're doing all the backstabbing and shit.

–Aren



The way that this has worked out is insane. I was just talking to Brandon, and he just asked me if I was up for an alliance with him, Tatianna, Alietta and Johnny. What a coincidence; Brandon. What, a, coincidence. He's basically made this a rough choice for me. I mean, I obviously had to accept. Why would I deny?

Now, me and Johnny have to pick an alliance. Johnny wants to go with our original alliance, and now here's my dilemma: I prefer the people on the Brandon alliance, but if I sided with them and voted, say, Johnny, then it'd be a tie. That's wouldn't be a good move at all. Although... At the same time, although it's put me in an annoying-ass, shitty emotional position, it's a LOT of power. I really don't want to have to betray and blindside either Brandon, Tatianna or Alietta, but tricking them that I'm working with them is a smart move, since they won't want to vote-out one of their own alliance-members. I just gotta make sure that I play my cards right, and me and Johnny can get far into this game together, guaranteed.

–Aren



So I arrive to camp the latest, because, you know, why not. We're officially the Younger Tribe, or the Cute Tribe + Johnny as he calls it, and it seems like everyone's gelling together very well. No potential Abi-Marias or Chaos Kass(s) in our bunch, and honestly, that frightens me, because if everyone's getting along, there won't be an easy boot if we go to tribal. The only person I know here is Ayhan, who I've played with before. As far as I'm concerned, I'm glad he's here because I need a familiar face as a convenient ally and I know how he plays this game. He is a big physical, social and strategic threat so he'd be a good meat shield. With luck, we are going to dominate the pre-merge and kick the old-timers' asses :3.

Day one just finished and I have reached out and been approched by 6/7 tribe members, this is a great thing because all of them have expressed interest in working with me, leaving me with a lot of options moving forward. An alliance of 4 has been created consisting of Ali, Tatianna, Aren, and myself. Hopefully this four can stick together for some upcoming votes and maybe throughout the game. Not only do I feel that these people are genuine and trustworthy, but I feel they are strong for the tribe as well. Of course the number one thing to hope for is to win some challenges in the tribal portion of the game and keep the morale strong. If not, I feel as though my options are open in case we need to vote. This is Season 30 for crying out loud, the game is moving like lightning. I need to keep my torch lit, so I'm doing whatever it takes.

–Brandon



So, I've been talking to Alietta about the whole five person alliance thing, and I hate to lie to her, but she's taking all of it. She has no idea whatsoever that I'm working both sides. But if she's more aware than I expected... Then jokes on me, I guess, hehe.

She's completely in for the five person alliance, and she was saying stuff about including Ayhan. I had to calmly reject that, since having Johnny play both sides with me is enough. After all, three men can keep a secret, if two of them are dead. If we lose immunity, I'm going to try to put the vote on Brandon. He's a strategic threat, and I prefer Alietta and Tatianna to him. But at the same time, I'm STILL considering sticking with his four person alliance and getting Johnny out. Talking about Johnny, I'm not enjoying his presence this game. He says stuff like, y'know: 'we could be the final 2', 'we could go far together', etc. But at the same time, he doesn't seem to really care about me. I don't think he'll keep hold of me in this game for as long as I am expecting him to, AKA the final 2. I'll be fine as long as I time myself and KNOW when to stop the train and cut the rails. It's a lot of pressure, but I need to take it easy for now, and just be appreciative about my excellent position in the game.

–Aren



Ugh... Me and Alietta are basically playing tug of war with each other right now.

She keeps saying that she wants to vote Ayhan first, then James, then Johnny. I'm trying to say, as calm as I can: 'no, Ali! We gotta keep Johnny for now.' It isn't working. This is getting annoying. Love ya, Ali, but I've told you several times that Johnny's our fifth, and it's risky to just flip Johnny into Marco.

–Aren



Finally, Ayhan has started talking to me. Before, he was such an enigma, so I'm glad that I kind of know who he is now.

Me and him have been talking about the alliance of us, Johnny and James, possibly Marco too. He seems up for it, but not as into it as the others, so it's still risky having him; but he should be cool. I'm kind of nervous that he has another alliance, and is living a secret, second life in Svalbard, y'know?

–Aren



So after talking with everyone, looks like I am getting to finally know the tribe dynamics.

There are a few first time players, at least they tell they're playing for the first time lol. I already had the "Wanna work together" "Sure brah" talk with James, Tatiana, Ali, Brendon, Johnny, Marco, Aren. *pause* Well, yeah the whole tribe, but whatever... I truly want to allign with Ali, since she's playing for the first time and it would be easier to make her think my thoughts aka making her believe my plans are benifiting her game too. I mean it will benefit her, too, but I'm playing for my game after all. Johnny wants to allign with Me, Aren, James and Marco. I kinda don't like that group. I mean I like everyone as friends here, everyone's cool, but the people I want in my group are Ali, Brendon, Aren, Marco and/or Tat. Johnny is cool but his personality makes me paranoid, while with James it is full paranoia, since he hosted a season in which I was in (at Koror) (well he hosts all of them, so...), he might have an idea of my style of playing, which I kinda don't want to change since it hasn't failed miserably *anti jinx part*. But yeah, I dont wanna lose immunity, but If we do, it will be tough, coz everyone seems like good people. A cool idea might be us Bassoe peeps to go Pagong the rest and make a boring ass season (probably the hosts, worst nightmare maybe idk). Still waiting for the twist, we chose Johnny, wonder who the other tribe chose. But what is happening with this twist!?

–Ayhan



There's a lot of talk going on about what Johnny will do in this Hero Duel thing. Some speculation about Exile Iceberg, and then some speculation about a tribeswap.

I personally think that if he wins, he'll get to leave the chat for a day, which is a fantastic reward, considering we all annoy each other. If he loses, he has to eat frozen bananas, right off of some Svalbard bushes... STILL FROZEN. Hopefully I'm right! I'm sure that he'd get a ton of motivation to win if I am, since who wants to eat frozen bananas? Nobody. That's who.

–Aren



so my vibe on eva is that she is very manipulative, she has definitely done this before

–Tyler



Everything seems to be going even better today. I officially have a core alliance with Aren, Brandon and Tatianna after I convinced Aren to create the group (I hope it helped me not look like I was trying to hard). Brandon also told me about Ahyan saying he likes me, which lead to be convincing Ahyan to create an alliance of me, him, Brandon and possibly Marco which leaves two tribe members not aligned with me; Johnny and James. Johnny is being used as a vote for my core alliance but James has 0 connections to me, so I started planting doubt about him to my other tribe members which lead to them agreeing with me that James should go first. Win, win for me.

–Alietta



The wonderful girl, the ray of sunshine on our tribe Ali, is becoming an ever increasing problem for me and Johnny-boy. This chick is like a female version of Curious George, except she's not a monkey. She keeps asking me stuff like: 'we gotta talk to EVERYONE outside of our alliance to make sure nobody is placing both sides', 'we NEED a 6th number, 'cause why the fuck not?'. I love ya, homegirl, but NOBODY - and I mean NOBODY - can find out about me and Johnny playing both sides.

Talking about Johnny, I've gotten close to him again. I feel really bad for considering voting him out. He's generally a pretty cool guy, but he isn't aware that I'm a prowler. He has no clue that I would even consider the thought of voting him off the island.

–Aren



Me and Johnny, now that we've patched up together again, have a final 2 deal. Whether I'm planning on keeping it is still unknown to me at the moment, but I think I like the idea of taking him to the end. I just need to make some big moves a long the way, and I know that I'll be able to defeat him in the Jury vote. To win this game, you need a perfect mix of air, water, fire and earth. I have all four of those in at least some aspect of my game. Johnny, however, is lacking a little bit. He lets a huge target go on his back, which 'aint good.

–Aren



Johhny tells me that he is good with Aren and James, I tell that I haven't talked a lot with James, yet.
  • 1 minute later*

James decided to have a chat. Hmmmmm, how weird........

–Ayhan



... I'm such a doormat. I have two final 2 deals already, on day freaking 2. That's great in some ways, but could really play against me. Ms. Curious George Alietta and John-Bones, as I like to call them. They're my two final 2 deals. Alietta will be much easier to beat in the finals, but John-Bones is more threatening than me, so he'd be a good meatshield for the future. I have a better bond with Johnny, but I do love Ali.

In terms of challenges, John-Bones is a lot better than Ali (no offense to her.) I haven't seen her compete yet, but he's very hard to beat, so I doubt that she's much better. I'd hate to lose Johnny in this game, but he's a big strategic and physical threat, where Ali is just this young, ORG virgin. I can't underestimate her though; that sort of thinking destroys you in this game. Well, no matter who I decide to vote with when our tribe eventually faces tribal-council, the night-prowler is safe, and will keep prowling on. Will I team with the Ali alliance, or Johnny's? Find out next time on SURVIVOR, SVALBARD!

–Aren



I'm fucking stumped. I want to side with Alietta, I really do. I keep counting the numbers... Brandon, Tatianna, Alietta or Ayhan, Johnny and James, with Marco in the middle. It's just a better move to go with the latter group because I think they'll get Marco easier, and I'm just generally more secure with them, but I want to cause rifts and make big moves. Perhaps vote James out, y'know? I'm sweating my ass off thinking about tribal, and it's only day 2. There hasn't even been a challenge yet. I need to get my shit together and figure this out.

–Aren



So I've decided to openly get to know everybody and see what the hell they're doing strategically. If they're pulling a mwah, they'll answer with a ton of jokes and shiz. If they're a gamebot, they'll ask bland questions about Survivor and give bland answers in response.

I think I've been doing rather well socially. People seem to like me and success in this challenge will make me a threat, but people will still trust me. Until it comes time to vote somebody up and hell gets raised, I think I should be fine. Yet I'm afraid a few people may see me as fake or hard to reach. I'm not exactly a social butterfly, And now Aren and I are swinging on a pendulum of doom. Two alliances seem to want us - James and Ayhan, with Marco maybe working with them (we're not sure on Marco at all), then the girls are with Brandon, though over there I'm lower on the totem pole. So it's basically a waiting game now, because the decision to lop off one head and isolate two others comes with the loss of immunity. Hopefully, the cute tribe can pull through but the Bassøes are filled with disguised discord that's just waiting to come out of hiding. Ultimately, I'm just hoping it's a flag challenge because I'm doing alot of work on the flag and it's a beauty. It's not cute like our tribe would suggest, haha! My handiwork is epic, from my perspective. I sure hope the tribe likes my awkward creativity.

–Johnny



Brett, eva, and Rhiannon are too tight together. I'll stay with them for now but eventually one of them will need to go

–Tyler



What's so remarkable about this game, is that people hardly ever speak to each other in the main tribe chat. However, that doesn't mean that everyone's inactive, it just means that everyone is busy talking in PM, which shows what a sneaky and strategic game this is right off the bat. It's incredible, really.

James is the sneakiest PM assassin out of everyone. Hardly ever talks in the main chat. The guy is making himself a target - he needs to switch things up fast. Nobody seems to like him other than Johnny and maybe Alietta. I've been wondering about Alietta. What if she isn't such a sweet little ORG newbie, and she's actually a die-hard veteran? That'd be, like, the ultimate strategy to use in this game. I hope not, because I think she's adorable being a rookie. Plus, it means I can like her and align with her without worrying about her being too threatening in the future.

–Aren



So... We walked into that beautiful, cold-ridden challenge-site (I think I saw some penguins but I was too far away to tell) and we told the hosts that we decided to pick Johnny as our representative to compete in the challenge. The other tribe picked that Wouter guy. It was then announced that the challenge was a JIGSAW PUZZLE. John-Bones rules at these. Wouter better get prepared for instant death by Bones!

–Aren



It's official: me and Alietta go by the Jigsaw Disasters. That's our alliance name. Pretty badass, eh? I really need to make sure that we don't lose immunity until the inevitable swap, so that I can keep Ali as an alliance member. I still really like her and want to go far in this game with her.

Sure, I want to go far with John-Bones too, but not the finals. With John-Bones, I'd have to work my ASS off to win the Jury votes over him, whilst with Alietta, it'd be much easier. John-Bones has really been taking charge of the tribe recently, especially in the Hero Challenge, which he's crushing. Seriously, 3:10? Incredible. The ironic thing is, is that although John-Bones is really intelligent, he probably has no clue that I'm playing the game the way I am. He doesn't know that I have a final 2 with Alietta, and he doesn't know that I know that you can't win the game by just ignorantly following another player. Eventually, you must take the reigns and screw shit up, make big moves; jump through giant fire hoops of death. I'm the night prowler; the night prowler joins alliances, sure, but honestly works FOR nobody but himself. The night prowler is a lone force, who likes to prowl and strategise in the night.

–Aren



This is annoying me. Once again, the tribe chat has gone super quiet. I'm gonna try as hard as I can to get it active; but seriously, it's like a ghost-town here, so desolate. Even John-Bones doesn't talk in it that much -- and John-Bones LOVES to talk. Funny thing is, although I've nicknamed myself as the night prowler, I'm the only one trying to get a freaking conversation going in the tribe chat! C'mon, guys, lets your social games shine. This is Svalbard, we're supposed to be hugging and keeping each other warm and making fire and all kinds of stupid shit.

–Aren



So being on the old tribe. Blech I hate that name. You know I Figured I would be the oldest in the game but...... I have freaking 19 yr olds on this tribe. A 19 yr old is not old. Yeah they can drink legally but fuck I feel like I will be changing diapers on this tribe. Though this could of easily been the Canadian tribe with an Oswego dude who is basically Canadian. I have some plans. Just have to put them into play.

–Thomas



Finally, Brandon logged on today. I've been trying to be naughty and persuade him that I have this little crush on Alietta; just because then he'll probably think that there is no chance that I'd flip on his alliance. Because who flips on an alliance with their crush? Not me, that's for sure! Haha, welp, if we lose, this guy will NOT see his blindside coming.

I really like Brandon, and I'll feel bad if he has to go first, but he's the most strategically threatening out of him, Tatianna and Alietta. Also, he's the ringleader of the three. He also gives off this weird, likeable aura. It's a threatening aura. Even if he does get voted-out early, I know that in at least one alternate universe, Brandon Brinkerhoff would've been the winner of Survivor: Svalbard. That's why he must be removed from the game first out of the outside 3 -- he'll forever be known as the aura master-dude.

–Aren



Thank the LORD. Finally, James has decided to open up and give me a text. We've been making some small-talk, and I actually really like him. However, I'm beginning to grow suspicious that him and John-Bones might have a final 2 deal. In fact, I'm pretty convinced that they do.

I'm sure John-Bones said something awhile ago about Ayhan already being confirmed into the alliance, but when I asked James if John-Bones has been suggesting any tag-a-longs to make our trio of him, John-Bones and I a majority he said 'not really.', which was kind of weird. No way am I allowing James and John-Bones to get too far together -- way too risky. I know that they knew each other before the game from another ORG, so that's another check on the list of what'd make them have a final 2 deal. At around the final 8 stage, I'll try to sneakily get James voted-out perhaps. There's only enough space in this icy area for one final 2 dealer with John-Bones, James, and I'm nervous that you'll steal my thunder and John-Bones will favor you over me. Literally everything that'll end up happening in this game depends on who loses the first array of immunity challenges, which is such an awkwardly awful thing to happen in this game, especially at this point. But at the same time, that's the reason why I love Survivor: it's spontaneous. Very majestic, and I just can't wait to see how it turns out. I'm such a nerd for this game, I just can't help myself but invest in every little thing that happens. From the times that people are inactive, to the small little alliances, to the extremely stress-filled decision making -- and I'm loving every single second of it.

–Aren



I'm sure Brandon trusts me. Heck, I think everyone trusts me. My social game is great this season - better than it's ever been. I have multiple alliances, and two final 2 deals. I'm set up very well. But I could easily still be blindsided.

If there are in fact idols out there, I wanna find 'em faster than any other sucker out here. I should probably check the frozen bananas before somebody else gets that brilliant idea -- who wouldn't put idols inside of frozen freaking bananas?! I would, that's for sure. Frozen bananas are the best camouflage mechanism out here; especially when there's literally nothing to camouflage into. Svalbard is beautiful, but so flat and rugged. Plus, all the guys are sick of freezing their nuts off. But oh well, you get used to it after awhile. At least I have Brandon as a friend, and we get on together oh so well, and I'm totally not strategising to get him voted-out the island or something, no way. Lil ol' me? Not in a quadrillion years.

–Aren



Lmao slay me with these alliances

–Tyler



Ok so I think I'm pretty happy with the older tribe so far. I was surprised to find out there were people as young as 15 in this game. I figured the majority of us would be around mid 20s with a few younger ones around 19 or 20. I never expected kids who were almost the same number of years younger than me as their age!

So far I've only gotten to talk to two people outside our tribe group message. Brett and Tyler. Both seem pretty rational and level headed. We've all decided to form a 3 person alliance this early. Day 1 alliances either break quickly or stick it out to the end. I'm a pretty loyal person myself. So if Brett and Tyler are game, I'm willing to stick with them to the end. Unless one of them just does something despicable lol

–Chris



I feel like such an asshole for blowing up my submission chat like that omg. I cringe because it was such a mess lol. It just shows how crazy it was during the first couple of hours. Technically, it's still day 1 and as far as I've been told, I'm in a four person alliance with Alietta, Aren, and Brandon.

Do I trust them? Not 100%. In fact, I don't 100% trust anyone, but I feel like I'm doing a good job at communicating. I'm not pressuring anyone and I want it to stay like that. I want to be a friend in need and be someone they can talk to.

–Tatianna



Ayhan kind of gets on my nerves. He gives these irritating, one-word responses a LOT. He just doesn't seem like he's trying too hard socially. I'd definitely be happy to vote him out first - it sucks that John-Bones put him in our alliance. Basically an automatic shield of safety for the guy, and he didn't even ask for it!

I want to make huge moves in this game -- and I WILL make huge moves in this game -- and blindsiding Ayhan would be, like, the perfect thing. It's all about timing. No matter when it happens, eventually I'll definitely pull the trigger and get this Ayhan guy out of the game. Whether it's pre-merge, or even the final 5, his vanquish is inevitable if his social-game isn't given a sudden boost in calibre. I'm going to put some cheese on the ground, tie a bucket to some rope and wait for the little mouse to go for the cheese -- wait for it as patiently as any human-being possibly could -- then WHAM. Let go of the rope and slam the bucket down on his ass. I'm sick of people not putting all their efforts in to win. This is fucking Survivor: Svalbard, the THIRTIETH SEASON. Lets play some Survivor, people.

–Aren



everyone in this tribe has now asked me for an alliance. tbh aside from chris and wouter, i dont feel an ounce of loyalty towards anyone

–Tyler



oh wow, wouter you scumbag... he has been leaking our chat to bas

–Tyler



So I manage to get in an official alliance with Brandon, Ayhan and Marco which is great for me, I have 5 allies which will hopefully keep me safe. Tatianna, Aren and Brandon all think I'm a final 2 with them but only I know who I really want to keep. That then leaves me not in an official alliance with Johnny and James. However, I've built a personal connection with them and I feel like I could still get them on my side if needed. Now all I have to do is make James go home first. He is just simply to late.

–Alietta



I love Alietta. She's such a sweet little cupcake. It's almost too good to be true. I really, really wouldn't be surprised if she's actually a bitch in her confessionals and is just putting this nice act on, but even then, I would still love her. She's my right-hand gal from now, 'till my grave. I'll never forget her.

In other news, Marco has been as inactive as Purple Kelly lately, which is disappointing. Was hoping to see everyone playing their little part in this tribe. But nope! Marco has to ruin it all with his long-ass ray of inactivity. Oh well, perhaps he'll become more of a competitor later in the game -- but overall, he'll inevitably get vanquished, just like all the rest who battle in a mental brawl of Survivor with the night prowler.

–Aren



I've heard multiple times that Johnny will be swinging with the majority, even personally from him. Obviously, if I end up in the minority he will easily turn on me. He CANNOT last long in this game.

–Alietta



Duh, of course I want James to go. I have no connection, game-wise, with him which means I need him gone. He's worthless to me. I have to just make up reasons for why I don't want him here so the others agree with me.

–Alietta



We found out Johnny lost the challenge. It didn't really affect our camp in anyway, he just has to sit out of the first immunity challenge. I'm going to support Johnny, he did great and was only beaten by TWO SECONDS. It's symbolic of how timing is everything in this game.

–Alietta



Finally being given a chance to speak to Tatianna some more. She's a nice gal, and is definitely someone I would like to contact after this game, but she has to go before Alietta, so if the wonderful Bassoe tribe loses two immunities before the obvious tribeswap, she's gotta go. I feel so bad for having her at 2 on my hit-list. She's so young and pure -- poor girl has no clue what she's in for.

I honestly think that if our tribe loses the first immunity challenge and we have to vote-out Brandon and lose Tatianna and Alietta's trust, it'd probably be a good idea for me and John-Bones to perhaps do the naughty-naughty unthinkable and throw a couple of challenges afterwards to get Tatianna and Alietta out -- clean off the aftermath of Brandon's vote-out, just like a janitor would to a little baby's puke.

–Aren



Now I have time to collect my thoughts, it is time for my first confession in the game. I'm thrilled to play and I was chosen to play the hero challenge. I was so happy and did my best. Guess what, It paid out and I won that challenge.Then came the 'reward'. I'm exciled and cannot communicate with my tribemates. I could play a mazeriddle for somehing, and I was dead after one turn. So no reward and left out of the game so after the 'punishment' of winning , I'm all alone. I've decided to be honest about this to avoid that they'll think I have the HII. For alliances, I'm pretty good in the game. I'm in the Barentz five wih Tyler,Eva,Brett, Rhiannon and myself. After that Tyler and I have a alliance wit Bas (A dutch guy, someone I can speak Dutch with ;)) So, I have some options but we'll see. Maybe I get voted out because they think I have the HII. I hope not but you'll never know. At least I won one challenge. ;)

–Wouter



I formed an alliance with Ali, Marco and Brandon - The "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman" Alliance. The name will is still under consideration...

I have realized something about Ali. She is a new player and she is kinda overplaying right now. She is already talking about first vote off from the tribe. It is still early for that, though. There is no drama in the tribe, everything is going so smooth, I'm afraid there's gonna be a slip off and it all will crumble. If it ain't broken, don't fix it! With that, James' name is already out there. Since everyone is so active in the main chat, James - as one of the people who are not that active in the main chat, has made an impression on some people already.

–Ayhan



We lost the challenge with 2 seconds. It smells fishy, though, and it's not the fish that we caught, it is the reward. What kind of a reward is being on a glacier alone. (My Exile Iceberg prediction has come true omagash). There probably is something there, a clue to HII or a HII. I didn't want to throw myself out there yet, but I might volunteer for the next Hero Challenge. I'll decide based on the situation.

–Ayhan



Day 2

This challenge is hell. I hate it. First of all, let get me started on that little Sunny bitch.

He's such an arsehole. The way he carries that umbrella? -- might as well shove it up his ass. This little bear prick needs to learn his place and that he should just STOP TRYING TO BE PART OF THE GAME. YOUR 15 MINUTES OF FAME IS DONE AFTER THIS CHALLENGE, BUDDY; DONE. NOW JUST PISS OFF AND JOIN SOME SHITTY ORGS ON /R/ONLINESURVIVOR. Now to those birds. Let me just start off by saying I will never look at birds the same way again after this excruciatingly torturous experience. This one simple challenge has scarred my opinion on birds. If it has wings, it's a bird. And I despise anything that is a fucking bird. (Sorry, Asterix!) the only positive thing to say about these little shit-nuggets that are preventing me from MY 300K score is that they hurt Sunny. That's the only little bit of respect I have for them. The car drivers are pricks too. Seriously, WHO drives that fast?! You knuckleheads will kill someone if you're not careful. I just cannot stand the irresponsibility. Also, they keep Sunny alive, so fuck them. The apples are the only characters I like in this game. They're just chilled out dudes. Sure, they give Sunny life, but they never gave Sunny consent to eat them. That's a decision that Sunshit decided to make when he got bored of just dodging birds all the time and jumping on escaped-convict's cars. He decided to ruin someone else's life, like the little arse he is. Oh yeah, and the umbrella is good comedy-relief, but he's still a dick. Anyway... Onto what's going on in the actual game. Well, there isn't too much to say, except I'm actually happy that John-Bones lost the reward. It'd suck to have him exiled. Also, I'm trying to be good comedy-relief for my tribe in this moment of anguish playing this disgusting, perverse game, because who would vote out the clown? Not me, that's for sure!

–Aren



Aren decides that he wants Marco gone because he thinks he is inactive, which is bad for me. I know Marco isn't inactive because I have an alliance with him. I reminded Aren of Marco's timezone and then Aren comes back with the point that we should vote Marco out because he will be bad for live immunities. I was like, sh*t, how do I get out of this one? I reminded him of how dangerous James is and I mentioned that if we do a live immunity and lose because of Marco, we have a perfect reason to vote him out at the tribal that night. Hopefully, my convincing skills worked. James NEEDS to go first.

–Alietta



Ok so I'll admit it. I kinda wanted to do the puzzle challenge instead of Wouter at first. Then when I saw that both their scores were under 3 minutes I was glad I didn't. I couldn't even crack 4 minutes. But I suspect Wouter now has the opportunity to get a HII being alone. So definitely jealous of that.

As for this immunity challenge...I'm going to kill the stupid ducks. I absolutely hate games like this. I don't have the patience for them. Which is funny because my patience level is higher than most people. Maybe I just don't resonate with games like this. Give me a good old fashioned word search or puzzle like that.

–Chris



So, Alietta's telling me about all the stuff that she has figured out and shit... It does seem remarkably advanced for a new player. This girl is either a natural, or is hiding something.

She's actually a really big strategic threat. Probably more intelligent than Brandon. We might need to work on getting her out in the near future. She isn't this ditsy little newbie like I thought, I underestimated her for sure. But I commend her; she could kick my ass if she knew that I was being naughty and playing her, but the night prowler always goes unnoticed, and that is my weapon.

–Aren



I couldn't give two sh*ts about winning immunity. I'm confident I'm safe for our first tribal and I'd rather get it out of the way so I can get our core alliance into the majority so I can blindside Ayhan. I'm trying to get the best scores to prove at the end, if I get to the jury, I performed consistently high in all my challenges to back my physical side. I want it all. I want to show I'm a physical, mental, social player who is known for planning blindsides and making moves to benefit me.

–Alietta



Seriously, James? 58000? Is that your best? Just proving my point to the whole tribe for why you should be leaving. You're making my life a whole lot easier.

–Alietta



UGH. I'm. Getting. More. Conflictions. MORE. FREAKING. VOTE. CONFLICTIONS.

It's such a better idea to stick with the plan and get rid of Brandon, but it'd be so pleasurable and sexy if James got the boot. Seriously, you're submitting your score at 58000? When we're getting scores like 200000? You're joking. Y'know, that saying that goes 'failure not an option' is bullshit. Failure IS an option, you just cannot allow yourself to select it. That is my life motto. James, however, is allowing himself to fail. He's giving up. He doesn't deserve to be here at all -- especially over people like Brandon. Even if it went to a rock-draw, tying it between Brandon and James would be beautiful. I would love to see the surprise. Now... I just have one question. CAN I VOTE NOW? I WOULD LIKE TO VOTE NOW.

–Aren



No matter what happens with this Brandon or James conflict, it's 100% that one of them has a meeting signed with Death sometime along the line after our first tribal-council. Heck, ALL of us have a meeting signed with Death at some point -- except for one of us, and that one person will be the Sole Survivor. Our destinies our already set in stone. There is nothing we can do but sit back and look pretty, and watch the fireworks go off at this point.

–Aren



I wasn't really able to help in the challenge, so I'm extremely relieved that we won. Otherwise it definitely could've been me going home. I hope I feel better before the next one, I don't want to be the lame girl that drags the whole tribe down and then everyone dies.

–Eva



'Hey guys! Welcome to another episode of: Aren debates what the heck he should do in this game. In this episode, he will debate whether he should go all-out in the challenge or not!'

So, yeah, once again, I'm completely strung. I have two options: go all-out in the challenge so that my tribe has a stronger chance to win, or hide my skills a little bit so that nobody sees me as a threat. The positive with the former is obvious: if I go all-out, my tribe has a much stronger chance to win immunity. However, I will also be seen as a challenge threat by the other tribe, most likely. They'll think: 'shit, that Aren guy is pretty good at challenges. Better keep that in account for later.' heck, my tribe may even get some silly ideas of backstabbing madness. I'm kind of tempted to go for this one, considering the fact that I really do NOT want to go to tribal-council in the first round. The main positive of the latter is that I'll go unnoticed -- nobody from the other tribe will bat an eyelid at my score, while at the same time, nobody from my tribe will think: 'Aren was shit in this challenge. Looks like I know my vote!'. I've made my decision, and I'm going to play down my skills. Before I submit, I'm going to cheekily find out everyone else's score, and try to get mine as inbetween everyone else's as possible so that I'm not noticed. Besides, even if we do lose, lets face it: I'm safe. Next week on... Aren Debates What The Heck He Should Do In This Game! Aren is happy after an unlikely twist... 'HOLY SHIT STEPHANIE VALENCIA IS PLAYINGIGIIOEWOAODAW'... But he is faced with a difficult decision. 'Kill Stephanie or you're out.'. What will happen next? Find out next on ADWTHHSDITG!

–Aren



The first immunity is out and I am excited. Haven't played it yet, buuut some people are working hard on it. I will too but later. Ali is almost at 1 mil.

James pokes the eyes again. He comes briefly and shares his low score that he thinks he should submit. Ali was mad, and I think she complained to other people too. Speaking of Ali, her and I have become quite the duo. If I am not being tricked right now, she is a good ally, if I'm being tricked, she's doing a good job. Today, I haven't been really acitve on the game talk, since I was 'out there' a lot yesterday. But I will continue with the talks tomorrow. I don't want ot lose the first immnuity, but if we do lose, then I have to recruit Tatiana and Aren, too. James told me that he and Johnny are tight. This is kinda scary to know so early, so I will use that to lure people over. "Hey Janny is real" "OMG What" "Yaaa let's vote 1 out" "Lol K" This is how I imagine it :) :D XD *evil laugh?* *nah* Now I'm going to sleep and tomorrow play the game and help my tribe. This is such a nice tribe. I feel like I say it over and over but it's true. Best tribe I've ever been in.

–Ayhan



PS I have a pet polar bear. His name is Ice Machine.

–Ayhan



Rising up, back in the top corner

Did my jumps, took my apples Went the distance, now I'm back off of my feet Just a bear and his will to survive So many times it happens too fast You die and die again cause you suck Don't lose your flow on the arrows of the keyboard You must fight just to keep your tribe alive It's the eye of the umbrella It's the thrill of the challenge Rising up to the challenge of our rival tribe And the person sent to exile iceberg Is laughing his ass off at us suck And he's flipping all of us off with the eye of the umbrella Tribe to tribe, out in the heat Hanging in, staying up all night The hosts stack the odds still we take to the street For the win with the kin to survive It's the eye of the umbrella It's the thrill of the challenge Rising up to the challenge of our rival tribe And the person on exile iceberg Laughs his ass off in the night And he's flipping all of us off with the eye of the umbrella Fuckin' love that song. I love this confessional, because I have to act like this normal-ass guy in the chat so that my ass isn't sent packing, but then I can reveal my geeky self over here.

–Aren



So far I think I’m off to a great start in this game; I’ve formed a majority five-person alliance dubbed the “Barentz 5” consisting of myself, Tyler, Rhiannon, Eva and Wouter. I think I’m in the middle of the alliance connected strongly to Rhiannon and Tyler who are then connected to Eva and Wouter respectively. So if our alliance does have to turn on each other I can swing to the two girls or the two guys. I’m going to ride this alliance for now, but I have very little trust in the alliance as a whole.

I also formed a day one alliance with Chris whom I probably trust the most, as we seem to have the most genuine relationship so far. Chris then initiated an alliance with Tyler and myself. For now I will keep Chris in the dark about the Barentz 5 until the time is right to let him know. Tyler would now be my closest ally as we are in two alliances together and he seems very trustworthy. There is already a huge threat emerging on my tribe and that is Eva, she seems like she could be an extremely dangerous social player down the road. Personally I don’t really understand why everyone likes her but to each their own. Eva also seems strongly connected to Rhiannon and that is not good for me, the two girls together worry me. I want Rhiannon closer to me than Eva and that won’t happen with Eva around. I’m in an alliance with Eva for now, but the first chance I get to take a shot at her I’m going to, she is extremely dangerous. I’m struggling with the social aspect of this game in the sense that I don’t really want to talk to these people. I have better things to be doing than getting to know them, but I need to suck it up, as you need to form good bonds to survive in this game. As of now I think I have the highest score for the immunity challenge which should bode well for me if we do end up going to tribal but I need to tone it down for the next challenge as I don’t want to seem like too much of a threat. Lastly the paranoia of this game is already getting to me, it’s insane, I’m going crazy wondering who is talking to who or if anyone has been talking about me.

–Brett



I think I achieved the perfect score to achieve my goal of not appearing too threatening, but kind of hanging around the middle in my tribe's scores. I have a score of 624,880.

I'm going to play it up as if I'm finding it impossible to get a higher one, whilst really, I could probably go for one million if I really wanted. God, playing in this ORG is rough. There 'aint any newbies over here: this is the champions game. Everybody is a good player. It's like having to wait for an opening in a boxing match. Patience is key. Timing is key. Determination is key. Strength is key. Mental-toughness is key. Succession is key. Speed is key. Motivation is key. Each of these keys unlocks a different chest with a different reward. If you have the key of patience, you will be rewarded. If you have the key of timing, you will be rewarded. If you have the key of determination, you will be rewarded. If you have the key of strength, you will be rewarded. If you have the key of mental-toughness, you will be rewarded. If you have the key of succession, you will be rewarded. If you have the key of motivation, you will be rewarded. What you will NOT be rewarded for is giving up. Wow -- never knew it. Survivor is just like boxing.

–Aren



Time to catch up on what’s been happening. Johnny made us a kick-ass flag which is more than can be said for Barentsz. Our tribe is rocking it. We need to win immunity cos our tribe is full of baes who don’t deserve to be first boot. Turns out Exile Iceberg’s actually a thing, guess that Wouter guy better learn how to make a fire or he’s gonna freeze to death. Anyway, Ayhan has created an official alliance of four between myself, him, Alietta and Brandon. I haven’t really connected much with Brandon myself, but I’m just thankful to have allies so good on Ayhan. No one wants to go home pre-merge so I’m going to play as under the radar as possible until we reach the jury phase. If we do go to tribal, Ayhan and Ali want to target James. They don’t know this, but James actually approached me for an alliance. Of course I said yes, but hey, if the majority wants him gone, then I might have to just let him go. If we do go to tribal, we’d need at least one more vote to have the majority. It shouldn’t be too hard to convince Aren to help us. Aren – bless his soul – has a crush on Alietta, so I’m sure he’ll vote however she tells him to. To think that booty blinding is still a thing even on virtual Survivor.

–Marco



That Wouter dude is on that Exile Iceberg thingy-majig. It's pretty obvious that he'll get a clue to the Hidden Svalbardian Idol. I was wondering where idols would be placed this season, so that was fun to find out.

That little old-fart will probably find it as well. Me and Ali were talking yesterday about how he probably has a clue to the idol, and she said something like: 'lets keep this information to ourselves'. WHAT INFORMATION IS THERE TO KEEP TO OURSELVES??? Pretty freaking obvious that he has the idol clue. Also, Ali said something like: 'it's funny that Ayhan thinks I'm playing you, but it's actually the other way around'. This confirms my thoughts about Ali. That girl is trying to use me as a little pet. She thinks she has me on a little leash. She thinks that I'm her little puppy-dog. I might be wrong, but no matter what -- I'm wearing the pants in this relationship, baby. She may not know it, but I'm the dominant one out of our petite alliance. I'm starting to wonder if we should vote her out first. Well, I still think I can use her a little bit. I don't know if it's her time yet. However, I'm honestly kind of looking forward to taking her out to a clear, icy field and whipping my weapon out where nobody can hear the gunshot. Okay, that was a little dark -- I'm basically using a metaphor that means that I want to vote her out. PS: When you read this, Ali; please know that this is isn't supposed to be personal. It's just the game. You're a lovely person, but I just don't trust you, and Johnny got to me first with a final 2 deal. In an alternate-universe, things would possibly be different, but you might need to go night-nighty soon in this game. Just get ready; turn out the lights, tuck yourself in, and get prepared to sleep. Perhaps I'll even read you a little book.

–Aren



I absolutely hated this immunity challenge, and I don't know how the hell other got close to a million. If my tribe loses, I hope I can deflect any attention I'll receive, bc I've already heard so people dragging my name through the mud.

I want to trust the Alietta/Aren/Brandon alliance, but Alietta is already showing controlling tendencies and I don't feel very close to Brandon. Hopefully I can get through this in one piece, and then find a way to break this alliance.

–Tatianna



I love acting like this naive, frightened little 13 year-old. It's hilarious.

Tatianna is kind of motherly to me, but little does she know, I've got a knife in my pocket. I feel a little bad, but ah well, it's just the game. Brandon is really cool. Sucks that he's our first cible d'assassinat, but just like all assassinated humans, he'll get over it. Maybe because he'll be lying in his bed, stone-cold and dead and his feelings won't be present anymore... But he'll still get over it. Out of the des cibles d'assassinat, Tatianna is the one that we're underestimating the most. That might be a mistake, considering that her social-game is good. If a tribeswap happened, she'd have a good chance of pulling over some oldies. It's just straight-up hilarious that the three des cibles d'assassinat are all threats in a different way. Alietta; for her physical game. Tatianna; for her social game and Brandon for a mix of things, but mainly his strategic game. He's definitely more strategic than Tatianna, but Alietta is still foggy strategy-wise. She doesn't let you see inside of her. She's wearing an invisibility cloak CONSTANTLY. But, no issue; I admire her strategic IQ. She just needs to work on how she comes off to certain boys named Aren, is all.

–Aren



Ok, so everybody on our tribe keeps talking about how they don't think the other team will get scores as high as ours.....really? Delusions of grandeur guys? Cmon people, the other tribe has a lot of high schoolers on it! I could be totally wrong, but I guarantee that most of those younger ones have not only played this game, but they rock it.

I mean when I was in high school we'd jump at any little chance to play games in the computer lab. This is a generation that knows nothing BUT computers. They don't remember a time before when you had to go outside and play to occupy yourself. I think our tribe might be kidding themselves and setting up for a big disappointment. Not trying to be a pessimist here, just trying to be a realist. But hey, isn't a realist just a sub-level pessimist? Then again, I could be totally wrong and we're gonna beat the crap out of those little brats. You know, I didn't imagine myself being this snarky, but I guess that's the persona I'm going for with this game....(I'm actually an optimist lol)

–Chris



Waiting for the challenge results is harder than it looks, guys. It feels just like when you're waiting for the pizza-man to deliver your pizza. Fucking awful. To all those thinking: 'I can do this game easily. I can wait for the challenge results.' well, then you're WRONG. Waiting for the challenge results is so grating and irritating. I'm just, like: 'where's the pizza service?! Gimme pizza!'.

–Aren



My tribe is so naive about challenges and what it takes to win it's not even funny!

–Thomas



We lose immunity and I'm kind of...happy. Now I can get rid of James and get my alliance into the majority. There's no room for dead-weight.

–Alietta



I knew that playing down my skills in this challenge was worth it, because lets face it, 400K more points wouldn't have changed anything for me OR my tribe. Just would've made me seem more threatening.

I'm really conflicted about the vote. I just found out that Ayhan is planning on voting for James, which is insane. I'm really not sure if I believe him, or who to believe. I just really want to be safe for this vote. The safest route would be voting with Johnny, but at the same time, if Ayhan is truly voting for James then I'd love to see James go. It's just rough. All that's sure tonight is that Jamie is getting some votes, and one of the des cibles d'assassinat will receive some too. This game is a toughie.

–Aren



I'm absolutely terrified about this upcoming vote. It's so irritating! I'd be pissed if I go when I haven't done anything to anyone, and others get to stay while doing fuck all. If someone is not trying in the challenges and is inactive, they shouldn't be kept this early in the game.

–Tatianna



After the challenge, everyone goes crazy. Everyone's panicking about the vote. James' name is getting thrown around, Brandon's is, Tatianna's is, Ayhan's is, Aren's is and I'm sure mine is. I had to remind the majority of the tribe that James needs to go because he is bringing the tribe down. Tribal will show where people's loyalties lie and if the game is really in my hands. I cannot wait to see.

–Alietta



Well, a win is always great, but a win I played a major part in is even better, thats definitely bonus points with my tribe!

Ok so I guess I was wrong. I'm a total dick. We did end up beating the little youngins after all, even with Eva's painfully low and pathetic score. But now I'm gonna be a dick about something else....Eva's score.

Do you really expect us to believe you did THAT terrible because you were sick??? I'm not buying for a minute! She purposefully sabotaged that challenge, or she didn't even try. I went back and played again to see how hard it is to get the proud score of 2000.....it literally took no effort. All I did was click the mouse and make the little bear jump off cars and float to the next. In 5 clicks, count em, FIVE, I had a score of over 3000 just from making him jump from one car and gliding. And it took a whopping 20 seconds to get that score. That's why I don't buy her story about being sick. She didn't even try. I would bet good money she tried to throw it. I'm gonna keep an eye on her and how well she does in challenges from now on. OH! Another side note for why I don't trust her. She posted earlier on facebook something about how she shouldn't be trusted. Message received! I'm keeping an eye on you....

Day 3

Ummmm, awkward....

So we lost immunity, but before that, can we talk about the overly dramatic scene that happened in the tribe chat before the results were up? Like seriously, why are they acting so impatient and overplaying their "good tribemate" thing. It's good for other people to know, but it just forces me to act like that to not be "out of the loop". About the challenge. James got the lowest score of the tribe, while I got the second worst... But, James was caught lying about his score so there are a lot of people who want him out now. I'm one of those poeple. He also formed the alliance that he was talking about on day 1. Though Aren and I aren't quite big fans of that group. James' our target. And it group has made me solidify a " Spy alliance" with Aren. I'm also really good with Ali. She is strategic and kinda everywhere a liiiiitle too much, but oh well. It will come to bite her ass. She is outspoken and sometimes her messages sound a bit mean. For tribal, if everything goes right, James should be the one to go. The Do you wanna.... Alliance is still good. In fact Brandon is James and Johnny's target so that will just push Brandon towards our side. Marco trusts me. Tatianna is still second guessing who to vote, but I hope I can get in her head in the next day when the tribal is up.

–Ayhan



This is insane. I'm confused and frightened. I feel like I was just stripped of all strategic dominance that I might have had over anyone else. Ali found out about Johnny's alliance, thanks to Ayhan. Fuck you Ayhan.

Going into this vote, I'm voting James. Praying for it to be 5-3 James. This is fucking crazy. I can't go first. It can't happen. There's no way.

–Aren



Thank the lord, I think the night prowler has recovered himself and broke his fall. His long-ass fall. I think I managed to convince Alietta that I voted for James. I think Alietta might still be with me.

I regret all the bad shit that I said about that girl. I was being such a disrespectful condescending prick. She's now my guardian-angel in this game. This is just so ridiculous. This is a gigantic vote. I cannot believe that this is happening -- that any of this is happening. I am a humbled player.

–Aren



Even if this is my one and only tribal-council, I have one death-wish: to be remembered. That was the one thing I wanted to accomplish going into this game, and that's the one thing I want to accomplish now.

I obviously can't just ask you beautiful viewers to remember me. That'd be stupid. I want to be naturally remembered. And I WILL BE REMEMBERED. THEY CAN VOTE ME OUT OF THE GAME, SURE, BUT THEY CAN NOT VOTE ME OUT OF THE EXISTENCE OF HISTORY. THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE. NO MATTER WHAT, I WILL BE A MEMORABLE PLAYER. It will truly be extremely upsetting if I'm voted-out, but if I can leave remembered, then mission accomplished. There's a famous quote that goes by: 'a man doesn't die when he is shot with a bullet, or stabbed with a sword. A man dies when is forgotten.' and that totally suits this game. I am that man. I will be remembered, and I will never die. My flame will never give out.

–Aren



I was just talking to Marco, and I lied to him that earlier somebody was throwing his name around. I think he bought it.

He asked who, obviously, and I said that I couldn't tell him. I'm going to stick by that. I'm hoping this'll make some steel-forged bond between us from The Anvil of the Survivor Gods. He said he was voting James, and that made me feel more secure, so phew. Anything to stay in this wonderlusted game.

–Aren



What I find tough about the game of Survivor is the betrayal. It’s never easy to betray someone who puts trust in you. The plan right now is to get out James; Alietta is campaigning hard to get him out, and I think she may have swayed Aren and Tatianna to vote with our alliance of four. It’s almost alarming how easily she seems to have convinced people to go after him. She pointed out that James didn’t really deliver during our first challenge, and we know that James and Johnny also have a tight relationship, so maybe it’d be better to break those two up now rather than worry about them later.

–Marco



I am really worried of going home

–James



Aren is a sneaky little rat. For one, don't think you can hide things from me. I have to many connections to not find out about it. Secondly, lie to me once and I'll forgive you, but I'll never forget. NEVER. Better keep your eyes open, little boy.

–Alietta



I wish I could give you more but there is literally nothing happening. We haven't had to scramble I guess so no one is forming bonds or making alliances. It's actually a little frustrating how quiet we are. But we all agree were one big happy tribe. Yeah that lasts until we lose the immunity.
