Zeke's Vinaka Alliance, also known as The Mob, is an alliance on the merged Vinaka tribe in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.

After the rock draw at the Final 10, this became the majority alliance. However, with Will's flip on Day 33, the alliance lost its numbers and was systematically eliminated by its rivals in the next four days.


Zeke's Decision

After controlling the first two votes after the merge, the Takali Alliance planned to get rid of Jessica. Takali alliance member Chris Hammons talked to Zeke Smith about blindsiding Jessica Smith. Prior to Tribal Council, Zeke and Hannah Shapiro were caught in the middle between the Takali alliance who targeted Jessica, and David Wright's alliance who targeted Chris. Zeke and Hannah sided with the later thus blindsiding Chris.

David vs. Zeke

The next day Zeke decided to work with Chris's allies Bret LaBelle and Sunday Burquest, and Bret told him David was coming after him. They decided to eliminate David next. After returning from the reward challenge, Hannah told David about Zeke's plan to target him, so then David an Hannah decided to target Zeke. After the immunity challenge, Jessica and Ken McNickle confirmed their allegiance with David, while Zeke talked to Hannah about his plan; after she was visibly reluctant to work against David, Zeke decided to target her instead. He recruited Jay Starrett and Will Wahl to join him, Bret and Sunday, while Hannah tried recruiting Adam Klein to join her, David, Jessica and Ken, and force a tie.

Redirect at Tribal Council

During Tribal Council, David's alliance and Zeke's alliance openly quarreled. David incorrectly played his Hidden Immunity Idol on Ken who received zero votes, and the first vote ended in a 5-5 tie between Hannah and Zeke.The revote ended in a 4-4 tie between Hannah and Zeke. Nobody would change their votes so a rock drawing Tiebreaker occurred. Zeke's alliance survived as David's alliance member Jessica was eliminated by picking the wrong rock.

Will's Resume

With Jessica gone, Zeke's alliance as in the majority. However, after the Loved Ones Challenge, Will talked to David about flipping on Zeke. Adam defeated Jay to win immunity. Back at camp, David's alliance, with the addition of Will, targeted Zeke. Zeke, suspicious of David's calm demeanor, decided to target Ken out of fear that David had found another Hidden Immunity Idol. Will told Ken that Zeke's alliance was voting against him, and a paranoid Ken outed Will's duplicity, putting both alliance's plans in disarray. At Tribal Council, Will flipped and Adam played his idol on Hannah so Zeke was blindsided.

Big Move Bites Back

After Zeke's elimination, Will was determined to keep changing allegiances to eliminate threats and prove he deserved to win the game. Jay won immunity. At camp, Will and Jay campaigned for David's elimination, but Adam then targeted Will for playing both sides. Adam's plan worked as Will was blindsided.


Following their attempt at rebounding from Zeke's elimination by linking up with Adam to help get rid of Will, Bret, and Sunday turned on Jay at the next vote. The two went on to stay aligned with each other, though Sunday would soon be voted out at the Final Seven. Jay was eliminated next. Bret managed to flip Adam to his side at the final 5. However, at Tribal Council, Adam misplayed an idol, and Hannah, Ken, and David blindsided Bret.



  • Every member of the alliance was blindsided at some point in the competition.
