Hello and welcome to the second season of The Cove Survivor! Let's meet the players this season!
White Collar Tribe:
- Andrew - Last season, Andrew was the first person voted out. Will he redeem himself this time on a new tribe?
- Becca - New to Cove Survivor, Becca doesn't give a fuck about the game and is incredibly likeable.
- Ben - Also new to the game, will Ben bank a million dollars by winning the game?
- Brad - The third new player to the game, Brad has a habit of getting fourth in games. Can he avoid that fate this time?
- Johnny - Last game, his own best friend voted him out. Will he be able to make the merge and get revenge this time?
- Vishaala - Also suffering the same fate of getting voted out by her best friend, Vishaala is back with a vengeance.
Blue Collar Tribe:
- Alex - We have no idea why he's on this tribe either. Let's just say he was the last one decided on.
- Austin - Last game, Austin and Zeptis were the focus of some chaos. Will he decide to play a different game this time around?
- Dash - Receiving stellar preseason reviews like "Why is he back?", Dash hopes to do better this game.
- Jon - A newcomer to Survivor who is only here to hopefully make the family visit and get Jenny on the island.
- Paxton - Paxton is back with a new strategy this game, but what is it?
- Zeptis - The preseason target of Alex, how will he avoid the fate of being voted out first?
No Collar Tribe:
- Corey - The OTTN player last game, will he change his strategy around this game? [No.]
- Daniel - Daniel is looking to come back and play a perfect game this time around.
- Jimmy - Going out in a blaze of glory, Jimmy burned his camp to the ground. How can anyone trust him this time?
- Lexi - Our fifth new player, Lexi and Austin may just form a McDonalds alliance this game.
- Shay - Will Shay be an even bigger trainwreck this game than last time?
- Stephen - Known for his "no fucks given" style of play, how far will he get without changing his attitude?
And with that, we begin!
Post-Arrival Day 1Edit
Each tribe goes back to their respective beaches and discuss which tribe they were placed on.
[Confessional] Becca: It's pretty obvious why I'm on the white collar tribe. If this were Cagayan, I could be on any of the three tribes.
[Confessional] Johnny: Yeah this tribe isn't ever going to lose. We have all the smartest people and people who are pretty physically competant too.
[Confessional] Andrew: I swear to god if I'm the first one voted out again I will be SO *triggered*.
Andrew, Becca, and Ben immediately get together to form an alliance to go deep into the game. They recognize that they only need one more vote to go far and hope to bring in Vishaala since she's playing a cuthroat game this time around. They approach her and ask her to join them and she gladly accepts.
While bopping around camp, Andrew somehow finds a hidden immunity idol.
[Confessional] Vishaala: Normally I wouldn't join an alliance without JB, but since last game Steven voted me out I am going to play a more strategic game. No more Miss nice Vishaala!
On the Blue Collar tribe, a lot of people are questioning why they were designated "blue collar"
[Confessional] Alex: Do I LOOK blue collar to you? I've never had a day of hard work in my life. Like what the hell!
[Confessional] Austin: I want movie! I want movie! I want movie!
[Confessional] Zeptis: Can someone SHUT Austin up? I mean I guess I'm blue collar with the farming and all. I also eat like a hog.
Zeptis approaches Jon for a final two as it would be unexpected, and he hopes Jon can convince Alex not to vote him out. Jon agrees but figures they should include other people in the alliance. Zeptis only wants the two of them for now but figures that he can rope in Austin and maybe Paxton.
[Confessional] Jon: Oh GODDDD, my only ally right now is ZEPTIS!
[Confessional] Alex: If I get voted out trying to slit Zeptis's throat with the machete at camp, I'll do it.
On the No Collar tribe, everyone seems to be having a good time except for Shay, who is pissed that she's on the same tribe as Corey.
[Confessional] Shay: I'm back in this game and I'm on a tribe with the ugliest, most disgusting human being alive. This happened last game and what happened to Corey? Oh yeah, he thought he was a genius and got out. Nice.
[Confessional] Corey: I don't know what Shay's problem is, she's probably just jealous that I'll be a better gameplayer than her.
Corey approaches Shay about their hatred. After a long screaming match, Corey suggests that maybe it's in both of their best interests to now work together because no one would ever see that coming.
[Confessional] Shay: *sighs* Am I really in a spot where Corey is my best option to go forward with? Gross.
Daniel and Lexi also form a final two since neither of them really has anyone else. They feel like they're also an unlikely duo but they could work well together. They both have similar attitudes and aren't going to take the game too seriously yet.
[Confessional] Lexi: Sure, I'll work with Daniel! I don't see no reason not to. Corey will be sooooo mad at me if I ever vote him out though...and Stephen will probably work with Corey.
[Confessional] Daniel: This time I need to have the game under control more. Last game ended horribly for me.
Immunity Challenge Day 3Edit
Today's immunity challenge will go as follows:
Two tribe members will be tethered together and must run inside the jungle to retrieve a chest containing paddles, which would be used at the second part of the challenge. Once retreieved, two other members of the tribe must ride a boat and use the paddles ti reach a buoy with a crate below. The paddlers must unclip the crate and bring it close enough to shore, where all six open the crate, revealing puzzle pieces. First two pairs to solve the puzzle win immunity for their tribes.
White collar decides to have Ben and Andrew run out to get the crates put Brad and Becca in the water, and Johnny and Vishaala on the puzzle.
Blue collar puts Austin and Zeptis on the crates, Dash and Paxton in the water, and Jon and Alex on the puzzle.
No collar puts Corey and Jimmy on the crates, Stephen and Lexi in the water, and Shay and Daniel on the puzzle.
As the tribes head out to the crates, Ben and Andrew are the fastest as they are good runners and Austin and Zeptis are far behind everyone else as they return to the water. Becca and Brad are the first in and first out returning the puzzle pieces with ease. Stephen and Lexi aren't too far behind running back to Shay and Daniel with the puzzle pieces. Lagging behind are Dash and Paxton because of how slow Austin and Zeptis were.
Johnny and Vishaala make a good team on the puzzle, and they complete and win immunity for their tribe far ahead of anyone else. They win flint and a fire-making kit for their tribe.
Shay and Daniel are yelling at each other over how the puzzle should be put together when Dash and Paxton return to give the pieces to Jon and Alex. Jon and Alex aren't exactly good at puzzles, but at least they are calm. They begin to work on the puzzle but are slightly behind Shay and Daniel. Shay hits a bump in the road and can't figure out the rest of the puzzle, and with Daniel yelling at her, gives up. Daniel is left to work on the puzzle alone, but he has fallen behind Jon and Alex. He catches up to them and they each only have a few pieces left. Sadly, two heads are better than one and the Blue Collar tribe is able to come out on top winning immunity and flint.
The No Collar tribe will be heading to tribal council
[Confessional] Daniel: I will not have Shay screwing up my shot to win this time. She needs to go first.
Post-Challenge Day 3Edit
Daniel is fuming about Shay sucking at the challenge. Lexi calms him down and says that Shay isn't a threat and they should vote Jimmy because of how he created havoc last game.
[Confessional] Jimmy: Yeah...I did some bad things last time I played. This time I've got this game on lock.
Jimmy approaches Shay and Corey and tells them they should all work together. He suggests to Shay that they vote out Daniel since he's so mad and wants her out.
[Confessional] Shay: I would have been fine with voting Corey out first, but since Daniel wants to get all pissy with me I can vote him out!
Lexi tells Daniel she'll talk to Stephen and Corey about voting Jimmy out. She thinks Corey will vote with her since they used to be pretty close. Corey agrees to think about voting with her and agrees that her, Stephen, and him should work together going forward
[Confessional] Lexi: I think that went well. I don't want Shay to get out, but I don't really care about Jimmy. He can go!
[Confessional] Corey: I think I might vote with Shay, but maybe I should vote her allies out in order for me to have a better position. Once again, I have the power.
The tribe heads out to tribal council to await the decision of who will be the first person voted out.
They're each asked questions about how they've bonded and what it's like being on the No Collar tribe. Afterwards, it is time to vote. Shay is the first one to go up.
Shay: [shows vote as Daniel] Who do you think you are?
Jimmy and Corey vote.
Lexi: [shows vote as Jimmy] You just really need to go before you can do anything crazy.
Daniel and Stephen vote and the votes are tallied.
The person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol and would like to use it, now is the time to do so. No one stands up because no one has an idol.
The votes are read.
First vote: Daniel
Second vote: Jimmy
Third vote: Daniel
Fourth vote: Jimmy
Fifth vote: Daniel
Sixth vote: and the first person voted out, Daniel. Please bring me your torch.
Daniel, the tribe has spoken. It's time for you to go.
Seventeen remain, who will be voted out next time, on Cove Survivor: Worlds Apart?
