Day 30


Challenge: Jala-Powed
Each of the castaways would fill out a questionnaire about the tribe in private, then the results would be tallied and the Challenge would begin. The questions would be posed to the group and the castaways would guess whose name was written most often. Each time a castaway guesses the correct answer, they would get one chop at a rope assigned to another castaway. After three chops, the rope would be released, which would smash an idol, removing that castaway from the challenge. The last castaway whose idol is not smashed would win.
Reward: A trip to a natural spring and a home cooked, traditional Brazilian feast made by a local family.
Winner: Stephen Fishbach (shared with J.T. Thomas and Taj Johnson-George)

Challenge: Snag, Drag & Bag
The castaways would toss a grappling hook to retrieve three bags. The first three castaways to retrieve all of their bags would move on to the final round. In the final round, the three would compete in a labyrinth game. The first to finish would win.
Winner: Coach Wade

Voting Confessionals

(votes for Sierra) I really think you're an honest person, but, in this game, you have to eliminate wildcards. There's enough variables, and I'm sorry, but you're too erratic to keep around.

Stephen Fishbach

(votes for Sierra) We've said it all. There's nothing left to say.

Debbie Beebe

(votes for Sierra) I'll say this again, two Tribals ago, I slayed your dragon boyfriend. Tonight, I have to take care of his princess, but you're not so much of a princess after you used that mouth tonight, are you? Goodnight. Good riddance.

Coach Wade

(votes for Debbie) See you soon.

Sierra Reed

(votes for Sierra) I appreciate your honesty, but better you than me.

J.T. Thomas

(votes for Stephen) I promise I'll never vote for you again, but I couldn't vote for Sierra.

Erinn Lobdell

(votes for Debbie) I promised her that I wouldn't vote her.

Taj Johnson-George

Final Words

I started off super sick, I had the flu but I persevered through it and I've done all that I could do to stay in the game as long as I possibly could. Coach was lying. I guess they'll have to find that out on their own. I am just totally floored that I made thirty days living essentially in a bush with nothing and I'm very proud of myself.
