Story

Day 28

The day after Jenna Lewis' booting, the ex-Pagongs were upset with Sean Kenniff, whose alphabetical voting strategy put the nail in Jenna's coffin. Sean thinks that the other Tagis piggybacked off his vote, but he's still not convinced that an alliance exists.

It's weird the day after anybody leaves there's just, there's just this void of, "Oh, wait," you know, "someone's... someone's not here."

Kelly Wiglesworth


Gervase was going to get voted off the last time but at the last minute they changed it to Jenna. And I think that that was the women's idea.

Rudy Boesch


The sun is out, it's going to be a nice hot day. And it's quieter. Sorry, Jenna, but, man, you talk a lot.

Susan Hawk


It's like 11 days left. I'm totally shocked that I'm still here right now. If you look at it since the merger it's only been Pagong people being voted off. You know, so it's like... something's fishy going on. You know, they can deny an alliance all they want but there's got to be an alliance.

Gervase Peterson


No, I'm not 100% sure. If there is an alliance, they are just voting in block but I don't know if there is one. I haven't been asked to partake in one or anything yet.

Sean Kenniff


Dirk got four votes. Gretchen got four votes. Greg got four votes. Sean, come on, open your eyes. Sean is interesting because I'm debating right now if I want to vote him off at the next Council. Because he's so scared of hurting somebody's feelings by voting for them that he's voting alphabetical order. I mean, he led the way for Jenna to be kicked off yesterday.

Colleen Haskell


And last night at the Council Sean realized that his vote impacted who gets voted off because we only needed to use three of our four allied people's votes to get Jenna ejected.

Richard Hatch


Whatever vote I was going to go they were going to copy. If I knew that I would certainly have abandoned this strategy earlier.

Sean Kenniff


It's like Sean walked into this and somebody forgot to tell him it was a game. And he's very concerned about people's emotions and feelings, which is wonderful you know, if you're taking care of a pet. You know, not if you're playing a game called Survivor and the point of the game is to strategize and eliminate people.

Colleen Haskell


It just felt a little scummy to me at the time but after last night where the remaining tribe members of both parties said we really don't care, it's just a game, every single one of them has tried to form a strategy with me personally.

Sean Kenniff


Meanwhile, Richard Hatch is delighted by the fact that he foiled Pagong's attempt to vote him out. He implies that he might stop catching fish until the remaining ex-Pagong members are gone.

Now people are talking about planning and plotting and strategy. (chuckles) And it's just so funny. So utterly, utterly, utterly naive that there would be any room left to plot or strategize now.

Richard Hatch


Rich is very arrogant, very cocky and very, very overconfident. And I thought, you know what let's take Rich down a couple pegs.

Gervase Peterson


Rich was this close to leaving last week. That was a good feeling. For me, it was just a great feeling. And you could see it's affected Rich. After those three votes, Rich was... he couldn't believe it. Rich even thinks I, uh... formed an alliance against him last night. Which I didn't.

Gervase Peterson


When I fish is somewhat strategic. So I'm thinking to myself it would be a heck of a lot more valuable I guess to me, if I got fish after a couple more folks were gone. And I'll limit the fish that I'm getting so that I'm not out here working my ass off and people just expect that there will be lots of fish.

Richard Hatch


I don't blame him one bit for not worrying about fishing till there's five people. That's a lot of mouths to feed and they don't appreciate it.

Susan Hawk


There are analogies between my going out to the reef and hunting the fish and my picking off the tribe members one by one. I've been stalking them since before we got on the island. Bye-bye, baby. it's a slow, more methodical game here on the island with each of the tribe members than it is with the fish but there are similarities. That's probably the last fish I'll get until there are five. There are seven participants right now and I probably won't bother to get any more fish until there are five people.

Richard Hatch


Colleen and Gervase are just sitting over there and I'm like, "You backstabbers." First you want him out of here, and then you're all over the food.

Susan Hawk


Behind his back, Sue Hawk and Kelly Wiglesworth plot to dump Richard at the Final Three. "I trust Kelly 100%," says Sue. "We're like sisters."

My strategy all along has been to just play the role as a dumb redneck. People like think rednecks are so vulnerable and dumb they'll talk to them openly. Like Rich did. (laughs) you know, how he's going to burn everybody. Hopefully in the end the, the old redneck will burn the city slickers. So we'll see what happens. I've been knowing all along that I'm going to burn him but I didn't want to say anything to Kelly too early. I never trusted Rich. Of course I don't trust him. But am I doing a good job making him think I trust him? I hope it looks like I trust him now. Right now I don't trust anybody except for Kelly. I trust Kelly 100%. 100%, And she trusts me the same. We're like sisters.

Susan Hawk


I really like Sue a lot. We've bonded quite a bit in these 30 days.

Kelly Wiglesworth


And it'll be 20 years come this Easter that I lost my best friend. So, coming across Kelly, somebody I can hang with... that's a long... I ain't going to ... her. I'm not burning her.

Susan Hawk


The only person I trust is Sue, and sometimes I doubt that. It's getting to that point where you don't know who you can trust.

Kelly Wiglesworth


I'd rather just me and Kelly burn him. Just because it'll feel so good.

Susan Hawk


If the alliance were to break down and something else happened that I wasn't aware of I would shake those people's hands and say congratulations you, you know, brilliant good job, you got it because you've fooled me.

Richard Hatch


Me and Kelly are taking him down.

Susan Hawk


A special announcement arrives in Tree Mail: Gervase Peterson's girlfriend has given birth to his fourth child. Gervase enjoys a cigar as his tribemates congratulate him.

It's real simple. I have two kids from a previous relationship: Dawnelle's ten, Genelle is seven. I'm with Carmela now Kayla with her and now Gunner. You know, Kayla's two and Gunner's the new addition.

Gervase Peterson


When I was brought up, if a girl was pregnant and wasn't married, you'd never even know it. I mean, they'd take her out of town or somewhere. It was that bad, you know. The girl could have had an abortion. I-I'll agree with an abortion. But not having kids out of wedlock.

Rudy Boesch


For the Reward Challenge, contestants must race across a series of tiles without falling in the water. Gervase beats out Richard to take the prize, earning himself a slice of pizza and a phone call home.

Day 29

Ten more days-- it'll all be over. I'll probably never see these people again. The way I want it.

Rudy Boesch


Gervase gets to talk to his girlfriend and hear his new baby for the first time.

Going to make my phone call to my family. See how everybody's doing, make sure they're doing good.

Gervase Peterson


I certainly don't judge him for being not married and having kids. I mean, he had one relationship, and then he had another relationship, and he seems to be in a relationship now with a woman where he's had two children, and is working toward a committed, long-term relationship to parent those children together.

Richard Hatch


I don't agree with babies out of wedlock that kind of garbage, you know? Half of the problem they got in this country today, there's no family life. And then they're blaming the schools. It starts way before them kids go to school. They need a family. They need somebody beating them in the head.

Rudy Boesch


Meanwhile, Kelly is feeling uneasy about being part of an alliance, feeling that it's too conniving. She feels as if she has "crossed to the dark side," so she thinks about jumping ship.

This is not what I thought it was going to be like. It's not about surviving the elements. It's about surviving yourself. I didn't want to be a part of the alliance because I thought it was conniving and dirty and untrue to myself.

Kelly Wiglesworth


I don't think Kelly really wanted to make an alliance with anybody here in Tagi. I think they kind of strong-armed Kelly into making an alliance and joining their team, and it's really affected her personally, like, as a tug-of-war on the inside.

Gervase Peterson


It's not worth it to feel like ... for the rest of your life, um, for a little bit of money, and your 15 minutes. You know, I kind of feel like Luke Skywalker, or something. I crossed over to the dark side for a moment. I don't like playing the game that way. Making a deal with Rich is kind of like making a deal with the devil. I decided a while ago not to be part of the big alliance. I've been pretty much letting Rich think that I'm still part of his little mind-game, follower thing the whole time, basically, because I figured if I did tell him that I grew a conscience and I didn't want to be his little follower anymore that he would turn around and shut me down, which I'm certain he would have, so, I'm glad I didn't... I didn't tell him.

Kelly Wiglesworth


Do I just kind of roll over and let Rich decide how it's all going to play out or do I try and beat him at his own damn game?

Kelly Wiglesworth


Kelly is really hard for me to talk with about voting and about alliances. I mean, because she could really be in for forming an alliance because you see her now being kind of pulled back and forth, you know? In one way, I think, she feels that she wants to, like, have fun and be young and, like, she said it. She was just like, "I can't believe I'm in this group with these people." She's like, "It's awful."

Colleen Haskell


The Immunity Challenge requires the contestants to start a fire on the beach using driftwood. Richard ultimately wins, then does a silly dance.

Day 30

Back at Rattana camp, Gervase and Colleen Haskell, the last remaining ex-Pagongs, know they're in danger. They hope to strike an agreement with Sean and Kelly to thwart the Tagi Alliance.

Rich got lucky and won his challenge and now he's... oh, man! Wait till you see him now. If you watch Rich the rest of this day watch the arrogance and the swagger he's walking around with 'cause he won that Immunity and he knows he can't be touched tonight. I think Rich is the ringleader.. Or if he's not the ringleader, then he's second in command. If I have to say, "Do I know for a fact there's an alliance, and all this stuff is going on?" No, I don't know for a fact, but I'm a smart guy, you know. I can see things and see how things are happening.

Gervase Peterson


I-I was talking to-to Colleen and we were just, like, "This sucks!" You know, especially for her and Gerv. It's like they know they're leaving next so they're just going to sit around and wait you know, with a red dot pointed to their head?

Kelly Wiglesworth


I think Rich-- being the cocky person that he is-- will think that they can get rid of me with three votes. Now, Sean approached me, saying he wouldn't, uh, mind making an alliance, but he said he would only do it if Kelly joined us so it'd be a sure thing. So they really only had their three core people: Rudy, Rich and Sue who probably definitely would be with the plan. That leaves four other votes, including mine that can go on somebody else. So somehow we have to work on Kelly and figure out who she's voting for and then maybe Colleen can also vote for that person. So, the best bet is Kelly.

Gervase Peterson


I wish something exciting would happen-- something shocking, something that nobody expects.

Kelly Wiglesworth


Looks like we got some thunderheads building out there. Should provide for an exciting night.

Sean Kenniff


Kelly cut her own throat tonight and it was a wonderful thing. She, uh, tried to align herself to the kids her age and was probably trying to look a little nicer to the other group, but I have a feeling she's got more going on with them than she's letting on.

Richard Hatch


It'll be interesting. She could have consequences. We haven't decided yet. (chuckles) "We." Hmm...

Richard Hatch


At Tribal Council, the Tagi Alliance holds firm, and with Sean sticking up to his alphabet voting strategy, the five former Tagi members ganged up on Gervase who is deemed more threatening than Colleen, and is voted out 5-2. Gervase becomes the third member of the jury, joining Greg Buis and Jenna.

Voting Confessionals

Kelly, Rudy, Sean, and Richard's confessionals are only available on DVD.

(voting for Sean) My vote is for Sean, as Sean has made a huge mistake in not seeing that Tagi had an alliance from Day 3 on this island, and he couldn't even see anything happening. So, for a smart guy, he has no common sense, no brains in his head, really, when it comes down to it. So Sean really deserves this vote.

Gervase Peterson


(voting for Gervase) He said to himself, competition.

Kelly Wiglesworth


(voting for Gervase) He knows it's coming. He's a good friend of mine. I'm gonna miss him terribly, and, um, that's about it, Gerv. See you in New York. Or Philly.

Sean Kenniff


(voting for Gervase) Hmm. I wonder how you spell it. I don't know. Anyways, you're a nice guy, I wish you the best of luck... but I'm tired of getting beat at the competitions by you, guy, so...

Susan Hawk


(voting for Gervase) Eliminating the competition.

Rudy Boesch


(voting for Gervase) For all the reasons. You described yourself so well, bud. See you in Newport. Take care.

Richard Hatch


(voting for Sean) I think Sean was, uh-- I hope this is how you spell your name-- pretty pathetic, this week because, uh, first he goes, "I'm looking out for everybody's best interest," and now he's looking out for his own interest. I think if anybody should get voted off this time it should be him without question. He's a putz.

Colleen Haskell



Final Words

First off, I'd like to say that I don't have... hold any, like... ill feelings towards Rich and Sue and anybody in Tagi for making an alliance and picking us off one by one. It's just that my tribe didn't want to do that. They wanted to keep it as an open game-- fair is fair, and let the best person end up winning the million dollars.
