Thy Name Is Duplicity is the eighth episode of Survivor: Borneo.

Story

Day 22

The day started with Sean Kenniff and the remaining ex-Pagongs expressing their disbelief about Gretchen Cordy's blindside ouster at the last Tribal Council.

Today is, like, Day 22. We had a vote last night, which is always pretty beat. Always puts us in a pretty somber mood. But last night was a very strange vote.

Sean Kenniff


Last night, it looks like there was a conspiracy, and maybe I'm being paranoid and I didn't want to believe it, but four people from Tagi voted for Gretchen, I think.

Jenna Lewis


You know, the bloodbath has begun, you know. People have started taking it a different way, 'cause there's really no good reason other than strategy to vote Gretchen off.

Sean Kenniff


I really don't know what happened last night. At first sight, it looks like they just picked Gretchen off.

Gervase Peterson


On the other hand, the Tagi Alliance did not have regrets about getting rid of Gretchen, since they saw her as a legitimate threat.

It was my idea to get rid of Gretchen because I... I thought that she was going to be the next leader.

Rudy Boesch


She had to go because she... is bright and, uh, is strong and she was a threat.

Richard Hatch


This is a game; don't take it personally. You know, if people came here to make, you know, bosom buddies and, you know, lifelong friends, they should've gone to summer camp.

Kelly Wiglesworth


While fishing, Jenna Lewis invited Kelly Wiglesworth and Susan Hawk to an all-female alliance to get rid of the seemingly lazy males, though the two were non-committal, since they felt secure with their pact with Richard Hatch and Rudy Boesch.

I think, really, if it happens again, then you can say for sure there's an alliance, but if it does, I'm more determined than ever to bust that plan up and still kill them all and win, you know. As far as Pagong, we are now four. They are now five. They do have a voting bloc on us whether we see it or not and they can pick us off one by one. My best strategy is to bond with the women and try to hold on to the women's vote as long as I can.

Jenna Lewis


The women seem to be getting along well because the women are all workers. Actually, I like Jenna better than I thought I would. I thought she would drive me wild and she doesn't, so...

Susan Hawk


I do see the women versus men vote continuing on in Rattana. As far as my three votes, top-- they're all men. I see women go out, get the crab traps. The women fix the hut. We're carrying the weight of the team. Maybe that's unfair, but that's how I see it.

Jenna Lewis


As far as the women becoming an alliance, there's a chance that the girls might want to have an alliance after there's a few more guys knocked off. If they do, I'll just lead on with them like, "Yeah, that's a good idea." But as far as the women forming an alliance and making one, no. It ain't gonna happen. I already got mine. I like mine.

Susan Hawk


Hunger pains struck hard on Colleen Haskell and Kelly, while Rudy and Sue squabbled over food rations. But not letting his tribe down, Richard returned with a net full of fish. However, Greg Buis felt threatened by him.

We're all hungry and we're low on energy, and there's still no one else providing any food except for Rich. And we're having to ration the rice.

Kelly Wiglesworth


Having nine people, it's, uh... everything gets smaller again. The rice pot got smaller, the sleeping quarters got smaller.

Rudy Boesch


I wish some of the other people would start conserving a little more... people that are being pigs. I'll only eat one bowl at a sitting. I'm planning on staying until the end, so I really want to have something for the last couple of days.

Susan Hawk


We have our fisherman; it's Rich. That's Rich's job.

Gervase Peterson


Greg showing up, going out trying to spear a fish. They've got nothing. I'm not going to do any better than they will. And I think Rich is in a great position. We vote Rich off, we don't eat.

Gervase Peterson


As far as who voted for me at the Tribal Council last night... and I'm not certain who it is. I'm thinking it was probably Greg who felt threatened by me. But it could have been any of them. I've only been with them a day or two and I'd not brought in any fish. Today, on the other hand I brought in a huge catch. Three rays... They just lapped that up.

Richard Hatch


I could eat rice for 17 more days. I could eat rice the whole time, but they're loving the fish and it seems to make people feel great, and I squeeze every ounce of credit out of it that I can. (laughs)

Richard Hatch


Rich is playing a big game. I think Rich thinks he's very clever. He has a lot of things going on in his mind that he, uh... selectively decides what he will share and with whom.

Greg Buis


I'm not sure how Greg sees me. I'm trying to figure out whether or not he's trying to build an alliance or pull me in or make me like him in some way.

Richard Hatch


Meanwhile, Jenna and Colleen noticed that Greg started to act different, seeing him as more devious, trying to be more strategic.

I'm seeing Greg in a more devious way than I've ever seen him before. Since we moved, I saw him change so much, and so transparently, to me anyway, that I've changed my whole attitude towards Greg.

Jenna Lewis


This scheme is interesting in that you make friends with people, you make alliances and you have to cut them loose at some point.

Greg Buis


Greg is working just about everybody in the group. I think he's always had Colleen wrapped around his little finger.

Jenna Lewis


It's not like that. I mean, honestly, if there was a girl here who I got along with really, really well, it would be the same thing that way. I feel like I have a friend and I have somebody who's my equal that I can actually have a conversation with.

Colleen Haskell


This is the game. You bring this little kitty along. You have your little kitten, and you pet your kitten and you enjoy this kitten and the kitten sleeps with you every night and then, you're hungry, man. You look right in the kitten's eye and snap its neck. It's nothing personal. You're hungry. The kitten has to give its life for the next level.

Greg Buis


I see him as being a chameleon. Changing his colors to fit whoever he's around.

Kelly Wiglesworth


Greg and Richard bonded over a talk along the shoreline, with Greg secretly trying to win Richard over, but Richard saw straight through him. That night, Greg again tried to charm Richard up to break the Tagi Alliance, but it seemed that Richard wouldn't budge.

He's certainly interacted with me in an incredibly interesting way that suggests to me that he's trying something that I'm very, very wary of and that's great.

Richard Hatch


Rich finds Greg attractive, so Rich throws these little innuendos out there and Greg will just pick right up on them, sit right real close to Rich and he's playing him.

Jenna Lewis


Greg and Rich have joked around a lot. We were talking one night. Rich was getting real personal about his business, and Greg was all in it.

Gervase Peterson


I think, uh, Rich likes to flirt with everybody, and instead of directly shutting him down, I only played his game back.

Greg Buis


He's manipulative. He's trying to win me over in some way. He's just not going about it in bright enough a way for me. I would like to spend more time with him and get to know him, but... I would also rather have the million dollars than to have somebody like him around to worry about.

Richard Hatch


Day 23

Upon receiving Tree Mail, most of the tribe contemplated to throw the next Reward Challenge and let Jenna win so she could at least see a glimpse of her daughters.

The reward is going to be something from home and, um, Jenna's thinking it's-it's our pictures that we got to bring, and, like, she really, really... She misses her daughters terribly.

Kelly Wiglesworth


Later, Jeff Probst made a surprise visit to Rattana camp by bringing a crate holding a television and a VCR, where Jeff revealed sneak peeks of their videos from home. Sadly, Jeff announced that Jenna's video of her two daughters did not make it on time, causing Jenna to break down. Jeff consoled Jenna by announcing that the second part of the challenge win is that the winner will have a chance to send his/her own video to their loved ones back home.

At the challenge proper, Greg's mark was never beaten by anyone, thus making him the winner of the challenge and giving him the right to watch his video of his sister, Julie.

If it's going to be funny, which I figured it would, I thought other people might get a kick out of it. At least she could provide entertainment for other people.

Greg Buis


I didn't think Greg's tape was unusual. I expected that and was excited by it. You could tell she was having fun and knew he would laugh at what she was doing and I was laughing. I loved it.

Richard Hatch


I definitely see Greg differently now after seeing his video and attaching a lit bit of a family with him. At least we know he's not the only screwball in his family. Maybe it's a genetic trait over there.

Sean Kenniff


I can't understand a guy talking to his sister that way. It sounded like Greg was talking, maybe, incest. That's the way it sounded to me.

Rudy Boesch


(laughing) Why not make allusions? It crosses all those borders. And, God, what are people going to think? And then, sexual allusions for my sister? What's gonna happen?!

Greg Buis


Meanwhile, still fuming about not having her tape, Jenna directed her anger by hitting target after target (since the challenge props were left at camp for entertainment purposes) as she beats herself up over the incident. Unwittingly, her hits eventually beat Greg's challenge-winning mark.

(weeping) I can't imagine anybody missing their kids more than I do every night. Miss my beauties. Miss Sadie and Sabrina. I can't imagine my mom not getting the tape out. It would've done wonders to see that my kids are okay. To hear their voices. To hear, "I love you, Mommy." (looks away from the camera crying)

Jenna Lewis


Day 24

Upon waking up, the tribe noticed Jenna having a better mood than yesterday. Gervase Peterson deemed Jenna as a threat being a fellow single parent, while Jenna and everyone complained about Gervase's lack of work ethic. Knowing that he was on the chopping block due to his laziness, Gervase rallied to win the next Immunity Challenge.

Yesterday was cool. We had that Reward Challenge with the bow and arrow and the reward was, the, uh... videotapes from home, and for me, that was way better than food.

Richard Hatch


Now, seeing those videos of everybody's family, it's, like, even if you didn't like somebody before, you see that somebody cares and loves this person, so it makes it harder for me to boot somebody off now.

Gervase Peterson


I felt so bad for Jenna. She practiced all morning on that stupid bow and arrow and then it was just, like, "Why bother" for her.

Kelly Wiglesworth


Those are my bruises from the bow and arrow. (shows bruised elbow) This is from the bow and arrow.

Jenna Lewis


I don't know what her feeling is because now it seems like she wants to leave the island and see her girls.

Greg Buis


Jenna is a threat to me because she has kids and I have kids, so we're, like, single parents, and if people feel for single parents and she's tugging on people's emotions right there and that can sway somebody not to vote for Jenna, and that's a threat for me.

Gervase Peterson


Gervase? I don't see him doing very much.

Jenna Lewis


The fact you have more people here now and we're having to forage for more food and there's a lot more slackers on this other team.

Susan Hawk


My work philosophy is this: Rich is, like, the resident fisherman; Rudy's the cook; Sean is hauling in wood every day-- you know, it seems like everybody has a role here-- and I'm just sitting back relaxing.

Gervase Peterson


Watch me-- I'm going to work that boy till he's gone now. He bugs me.

Susan Hawk


Gervase is honest. He's not playing anybody else's game. I've said over and over that he was an example for people thrown out of their element to really succeed and have a great time, which Gervase has.

Greg Buis


How have I survived this long? I always said when I came here, I was going to be the entertainer. I'm not trying to do anything shifty or shady; I'm just being me and people like me because that's who I am.

Gervase Peterson


Gervase is not that charming, trust me. He's a slacker, so he won't be around long.

Susan Hawk


Back at camp, paranoia sat in everyone's minds, especially the ex-Pagongs who were clearly in danger because of their lack of numbers. With this, they discussed about their future voting plans.

I knew coming here that we'd have to vote people off. What I didn't bank on was the feelings that you'd have towards these people. I feel like I feel every Tribal Council only it gets worse every time. I feel like a backstabber. I feel like a liar.

Kelly Wiglesworth


God, some people are so nervous, it's sick. It's sick how nervous some people are.

Colleen Haskell


People are all looking around a little more because it's starting to get down to the wire, and evidently, we're the only ones with a plan right now.

Rudy Boesch


The voting now should get very interesting. If people are fear- and self-preservation motivated, they'll band together. They'll form alliances. They'll start beating people out. Fear-motivated self-preservation is the worst game I can imagine.

Greg Buis


How do you, you know, stay true to yourself and maintain integrity and still play this game? And you know what? You can't.

Kelly Wiglesworth


It's cut and dried that we can eliminate somebody every time, and if we don't, I'll have to break somebody's kneecap or something.

Rudy Boesch


So as long as everybody can keep their mouth shut now. Kelly's a little freaky. She's gets a little going. I'm like, "Just shut up. Just vote this, and shut up."

Susan Hawk


I keep telling myself "Well, I have enough friends. I didn't come here to make friends," and da-da-da. And the truth is, I like these people.

Kelly Wiglesworth


As far as there being a counter-strategy from the other side, yeah, there is some fear about that because we haven't got enough of them voted off yet.

Susan Hawk


We have the upper hand right now, easy. We have four people that we could come together have a vote, and get the next person off.

Colleen Haskell


At Tribal Council, Jeff reminded the castaways that everyone voted out from now on would become a member of the jury. The seven-person jury would decide which of the Final Two tribe members should win the million dollars. Jeff asked both Sue and Kelly if there was an alliance. They both dodged the question and said that they simply voted out people they didn't like. Gervase, Colleen, and Greg cast their votes for Jenna, but the rest of the tribe had a different target in mind: Greg. By a 6-3 vote, Greg got the boot. He pretended to sob as he brought his torch to Jeff, cracking up the tribe for one final time (with Rudy thinking he was actually crying for a moment). Greg was the eighth person voted out of Survivor: Borneo and the first member of the jury.

Voting Confessionals

Jenna did not have a confessional. Colleen is shown writing down Jenna's name. Kelly, Rudy, and Susan's confessionals are only available on DVD.

(voting for Jenna) My vote is for Jenna. I think she's really missing her kids now. She didn't get the videotape. There's not a letter for her, so, you know, I think it's really hurting her, so this is her ticket.

Gervase Peterson


(voting for Greg) You're a conniving, clever little snake that I'm gonna be so happy to see out of here. So, just consider this the shovel chopping off your head.

Susan Hawk


(voting for Greg) Keeping with my strategy of alphabetical order, I'm voting for Greg tonight because it would have been Gervase's turn, but he won Immunity, so I had to skip him. Next person in order is Greg. I don't think this vote is going to mean very much.

Sean Kenniff


(voting for Greg) If you want to win the money, you gotta get rid of the competition.

Rudy Boesch


(voting for Greg) Ta-da.

Kelly Wiglesworth


(voting for Jenna) First time for paranoia, second time for irritation and third time because my ear infection is clearing up.

Greg Buis


(voting for Greg) Good night, sweetheart, yeah, it's time to go. No more competition. Talk to you later, Greg. Bye-bye.

Richard Hatch



Final Words

A twist of fate that maybe some didn't expect and some... well... some did. An excellent game, well manufactured. I harbor no resentment for any of you who voted for me, against me or otherwise. I feel like it's probably a pretty darn good time. Thanks, guys.
