The Yasur Alliance is the majority alliance on the Yasur and Alinta tribes on Survivor: Vanuatu.

This alliance is notable for being the first all-female alliance in Survivor history. However, seeds planted by Chris Daugherty, as well as insurgencies from within the alliance, eventually caused its downfall.

History

Formation

Witnessing an age divide between the older and younger women of Yasur, two alliances were formed. When the women lost their first Immunity Challenge on Day 6, Dolly Neely became the swing vote between the two factions. However, she couldn't decide which alliance to be apart of, eventually causing Eliza Orlins to suggest for her to be voted out instead. At Tribal Council, Eliza joined the older women in blindsiding Dolly, shocking the younger ladies.

At the Double Tribal Council on Day 7, Lisa Keiffer flipped on the younger ladies and voted with the older women against Mia Galeotalanza, blindsiding the younger women once again.

Tribe Shuffle

When a swap occurred on Day 11, Rory Freeman and Travis Sampson joined Yasur while Twila Tanner and Julie Berry moved over to Lopevi. When Ami Cusack overheard Travis attempting to tell his former tribe mate Chris Daugherty to throw the Immunity Challenge, she used it as leverage against him. However, Eliza attempted to save Travis by arguing the possibility of Yasur going on a losing streak without the men. In the end, Ami got her way when Travis was voted out in an unanimous 6-1 vote.

Loose Line

With Travis out, Rory became the last male standing on the new Yasur tribe. However, even with Rory still in the game, the tribe lost their second Immunity Challenge in a row. Though Rory was destined to leave next, Ami managed to pick up Lisa's loose line of "just in case" while they were gathering fruit, causing her to turn the women against her. With Rory's help, Ami successfully got rid of Lisa in a 4-2 vote.

Post-Merger Success

When the tribes merged into the Alinta tribe, the women had a 6 to 4 advantage against the men. The women decided to stick together and eliminate the men. The alliance took control, voting out Rory, Lea Masters, and Chad Crittenden at the next three Tribal Councils.

The Alliance Crumbles

With Chad gone, Chris was the only male left, and it appeared that Chris' time was up. However, when Chris lost the immunity challenge and told his fiance that he would be voted out, this prompted the women to keep him for one more round. Julie and Leann decided that Eliza didn't deserve to stay in the game any longer, which Ami then signed off on. However, Julie told Chris about Eliza's looming vote-out, and then Chris brought the information to Twila. Twila told Chris that he had been spared and he could turn the game around by talking to one person; after some back and forth, Chris realized she meant Eliza, and he went to Eliza and pleaded with her to take the chance and side with him, Twila, and Scout Cloud Lee against her former allies, which was hard for Eliza due to her dislike of Scout and Twila. Scout and Twila formed a Final Four Alliance with Chris and Eliza and targeted Leann, since Ami had immunity. In the end, the new alliance of four's plan came into fruition, and Leann was voted out, becoming the third member of the jury.

Dissolution

With Leann gone, Ami and Julie were alone. When Ami failed to win immunity on Day 33, she was voted out. The alliance was officially wiped out on Day 36 as Julie was blindsided.

Trivia

  • The Yasur Alliance is the first alliance to enter the merge with a majority, but not produce the Sole Survivor.
