Survivor: Battle of the Tribes
Episode One: "I Am NOT Going to Go First...Again"
Within the first moments of the game, former players are already
surprised to see each other yet again.
From their first seasons, each tribe rides into the competition
on what they arrived on in the beginning. Luzon, the tribe from
Cagayan that was quickly decimated, rides in on the helicopter.
"I'm surprised to be back," J'Tia says, uncertain as of how
far she could possibly go.
Kass looks uncomfortable around her former tribe mates: David,
Garrett, J'Tia, Spencer, and Tasha.
Morgan, the tribe from the Pearl Islands, rides in on a boat
and jumps ship mid-ocean. They arrive at the beach soaking wet.
Andrew, Darrah, Lillian, Ryan Opray, Ryan Shoulders, and Tijuana
exchange nervous glances.
Timbira, the tribe from Tocantins, arrives on a truck and parks
in the woods. They trek into the introductory zone. Coach and
Tyson exchange nervous glances, as they are the only ones in the
game to play more than twice; both being four timers.
Jeff Probst enters the arena and welcomes the tribes.
"As per Survivor tradition, we're about to switch things up. You
are all playing on your former tribes; a rematch of sorts. Right
now we're going to find out who isn't going very far at all.
Both tribes are going to vote someone out immediately -- day
one of the game."
Without a moment to speak, all three tribes vote someone out.
"Luzon, we'll start with you."
David reveals the first vote for Garrett. He laughs.
Garrett reveals the first vote for J'Tia.
J'Tia reveals the second vote for Garrett.
Kass reveals the second vote for J'Tia.
"Two votes on J'Tia and two votes on Garrett. Spencer?"
Spencer reveals the third vote for J'Tia.
Tasha apologizes, and reveals the fourth and final vote for J'Tia.
"J'Tia, your tribe has voted you out. Come take a spot next to
Morgan reveals next. Andrew reveals the first vote for Lill.
Darrah reveals the second vote for Lill.
"Instantly, two votes Lill."
Lill reveals the first vote for Tijuana.
Ryan O reveals the third vote for Lill.
Lill laughs nervously and looks over at Ryan S.
"We were friends in the Pearl Islands, so I have an obligation
Ryan S reveals the second vote for Tijuana.
Tijuana reveals the first vote for Andrew.
"Lill, with three votes, you are out of the game. Come stand next
Timbira reveals last.
Coach reveals the first vote on Tyson.
Debbie reveals the second vote on Tyson.
Erinn reveals the third vote four Tyson.
"Instantly three votes for Tyson."
Jerry reveals the first vote for Coach.
Sierra reveals the fourth and final vote on Tyson. Out of
curiosity, Tyson is allowed to reveal his vote. Coach gets 2
"Why Tyson?" Jeff asks.
"He's won already. Get off our playing field." Coach replies.
"Tyson, a former winner, Lill, the former runner up and outcast,
and J'Tia, the third boot. The three of you have been voted out
of your tribes."
"Lucky for you, yet again, you are not out of this game. You will
be airlifted back to camp, where you will have an important
choice to make."
The three are sent back to camp, and Kass laughs. "Garrett has
to go first before he can get the idol."
At camp, each of the three has a choice of a box or a bag of rice.
Naturally, the three select the box. Upon opening it, they are
given the clue to a buried hidden immunity idol somewhere on the
The camps reunite, and prepare for the upcoming challenge.
The opening immunity challenge involves puzzle solving and
strength. At the beginning, Morgan takes a huge lead at a baton
race, but Timbira picks up. Luzon again remains in last.
But at the final part in which puzzle solving skills are required,
Morgan fails, and Timbira gains first place. Luzon gains up on
them, and Morgan manages to lose immunity.
"I'm not going home first!" David exclaims.
At the Morgan campsite, Lill lays back with RyanS. He tells her
that there is a possibility she could stay if Tijuana worked
Upon speaking to them, Tijuana agrees to work out an alliance with
them. They decide Darrah, being a challenge threat in the Pearl
Islands, would be a good first boot.
RyanO teams up with RyanS and proposes the idea of also voting out
Darrah. He doesn't reveal the alliance and agrees.
At tribal council, Darrah is blindsided, thinking Lill would be
the first boot, by a vote of 4-1-1, with RyanS and RyanO getting
one vote each.
Episode Two: "Let's Not Become Luzon"
Savage demands an explanation as to why Lill was not voted out.
RyanS explains it to him, and he discovers he is at the bottom.
On Timbira, Tyson and Coach quickly mend their previous issue at
the open vote and form a minor bond, but Tyson knows he cannot
trust Coach. He pulls Erinn aside and forms an alliance with her,
and she reveals she also has Sierra on her side.
On Luzon, David reveals to Spencer that he has an alliance with
Tasha and Kass to vote out J'Tia first on the tribe, but Spencer
expresses in a confessional that he is already overplaying the
game on day three.
At the challenge, each tribe nominates three people to balance
a vase on a stick. The first tribe to drop all three vases loses.
J'Tia, Garrett, and Kass go for Luzon.
Erinn, Tyson, and Jerry go for Timbira.
Lill, RyanO, and Tijuana go for Morgan.
Within the first ten minutes, RyanO drops his vase.
After fifteen minutes pass, Jerry drops his vase.
Within twenty minutes, Tyson drops his vase. Timbira is down to
After thirty minutes, Garrett drops his vase.
Shockingly, after thirty two minutes, Lill's vase drops. Tijuana
remains for Morgan.
Tijuana yawns, and drops the final vase on Morgan at the forty
minute mark. Luzon is declared to be in first with two people,
and Erinn gladly accepts second place, as she won for her tribe.
Lill and RyanS agree back at camp to vote out Savage. However,
Tijuana is pulled aside by him, and she agrees to flip and
vote out RyanO.
At tribal council, RyanO receives two votes, and so does Savage.
Lill receives one vote from RyanO.
During the revote, RyanO pleads that he will join whatever
alliance saves him. However, the alliances on the tribe agree
that he would continually flip on them. RyanO is voted out 3-0.
Episode Three: "I'm Gonna Dump The Rice in the Fire Like J'Tia"
Morgan returns to camp, realizing they have been decimated into
a tribe of four. They decide to begin practicing in challenges;
something Luzon did and continues to do to win challenges.
On Timbira, Jerry calls Sierra out on being extremely weak and
skinny. This offends her, and she wants to vote him out. His
harassment continues, and nobody dares to speak up and tell him
he is offending her.
Within the Luzon tribe, J'Tia tries to coax Tasha and Kass into
not getting rid of her if they lose. She apologizes for the
Cagayan rice incident.
They agree and turn their sights onto Garrett on being weak. He
knows of what they plan on doing, and decides to frame J'Tia.
He approaches her and gets into an argument with her. When
everyone disperses, he takes the rice and dumps it into the fire.
The entire tribe looks to J'Tia, who denies doing it this time.
Garrett laughs in his confessional.
Despite their efforts, the challenge ends up in Timbira coming
into first. Luzon and Morgan compete yet again for second, and
Luzon manages to finish their puzzle. Everyone is happy except
Back on Morgan, Lill and RyanS attempt deciding what to do.
They decide on voting out Savage, and Tijuana agrees. They vow
not to lose from this point onward.
At tribal council, Savage is voted out 3-1.
Episode Four: "Skinny Moron"
Luzon continues to erupt in arguments about who dumped out the
rice. They are called to the immunity challenge early.
One person is to call out to two tribe members to get tribe
flags and place them correctly from largest to smallest.
Luzon places first, thanks to Tasha and Kass listening to J'Tia
Timbira comes close, but Morgan manages to beat them!
Back on the Timbira tribe, they prepare for tribal council. Sierra
coaxes Tyson and Coach into working with her to get rid of Jerry.
He, now knowing he's in danger, gets Erinn and Debbie to agree
to voting out Sierra.
Everyone meets while Jerry is at the bathroom and agrees he is
harrassing Sierra, but when Sierra leaves, they still agree
universally to voting her out so that the tribe is not weakened
by her wanting to get rid of Jerry.
At tribal coucil, Sierra is blindsided 5-1.
Episode Five: "Dissolve"
The three tribes are called to Jeff at the early morning. He
reveals the Morgan camp will be abandoned, and they will draw
for new buffs.
Lill and Tijuana draw Timbira buffs, and RyanS is sent to Luzon.
Not only does it scare RyanS, but Lill also fears Tijuana could
flip and leave her without her only ally.
Her worries are put to rest when Timbira wins immunity, and Luzon
finally visits tribal council.
Before heading off, RyanS is pulled aside by David and Garrett.
He reveals the plan to get rid of Tasha, who is a jury and
challenge threat. The three are heard by J'Tia, who agrees with
At tribal council, J'Tia pleads not to be voted out for the
rice. Instead, Tasha is blindsided 4-3.
Episode Six: "I Know What You Did...Finally."
On Timbira, Jerry continues to harass people, moving onto Lill
and Tijuana. The two feel far out of the loop.
In the immunity challenge, Lill and Tijuana are assigned to work
on a swimming puzzle. They pull through and barely win immunity
for their tribe.
On Luzon, J'Tia knows she is out next. She sits down at camp
with Kass and Spencer and cook the remaining bits of rice they
have recycled and saved from the fire.
Garrett walks off with David again to talk to he and RyanS.
"I swear to you I did not dump out the rice," J'Tia says to them.
Kass nods her head and stares blankly at Spencer. J'Tia sighs and
leaves to go swimming for the last time.
"I think she's telling the truth. Why would she dump it out,
anyway?" Kass questions. Spencer agrees, and they stand up to
follow Garrett's tracks.
In the woods, they overhear David saying to Garrett, "do you think
they bought it? The rice?"
"Totally, dude!" Garrett laughs. Kass hears David apologize for
voting him out in Cagayan, and Spencer watches the two hug.
They report back to J'Tia with talk that RyanS, David, and Garrett
are in an alliance, and have proof that Garrett framed J'Tia.
"Unless we want a 3 to 3 vote, we need to pull someone on our
RyanS is approached by them, and they confront him with a threat
to vote him out if he doesn't flip. He agrees, saying he felt
guilty working to get rid of J'Tia.
At tribal council, Garrett slips and reveals he has an alliance
with Kass and RyanS. Kass turns back, confused, and laughs. She
rebutes and states that she and Spencer both overheard him framing
J'Tia for the rice. He looks shocked.
Wanting to fly under the radar without Garrett, David, too, flips
Garret becomes the sixth person voted out of the game with 5 votes
to J'Tia's 1 -- coming from Garrett himself.
Episode Seven: "Redemption"
Lill and Tijuana confront Jerry about his harrassment. He claims
he had no idea of what he was doing, but the tribe disagrees.
Tyson and Coach agree to let by gones be by gones to get rid
However, they manage to win immunity yet again.
On Luzon, as they prepare for another tribal council, David
pleas not to be voted out. Kass, J'Tia, and Spencer consider
voting out RyanS instead to have a larger alliance at merge.
However, J'Tia states that David and RyanS will both flip in
the future, and voting either out does not matter. She wants
Redemption from Garrett and David framing her.
At tribal council, J'Tia and Kass vote out David, and Spencer,
having forgotten the decision, votes out RyanS. David and RyanS
vote out J'Tia.
During the revote, J'Tia and David are left behind while Kass,
Spencer, and RyanS revote. Despite Spencer's mistake, J'Tia is
saved and David is voted out 2-1 on the revote.
Episode Eight: "Back Together Again"
The tribes are brought in, and they merge. Tyson and Coach decide
to name it Luzorganira, which is a mashup of all three tribe
Coach, J'Tia, Debbie, Erinn, Jerry, Kass, Lill, RyanS, Spencer,
Tijuana, and Tyson are now a part of the merge and jury; something
RyanS, J'Tia, and Jerry have never experienced.
Jeff announces that one person from each gender will win immunity.
Coach, Jerry, RyanS, Spencer, and Tyson compete first, with
J'Tia, Debbie, Erinn, Kass, Lill, and Tijuana compete, with Kass

three. They form a large alliance of six, and decide to vote

of Jerry. Jerry approaches them and says that Timbira could stick
together to get rid of the other six.
Tyson believes this idea is smart, and they change to RyanS.
The Morgan three meet up and decide to blindside Kass, but
the Luzon three are not far behind them and hear their plans.
At tribal council, Ryan Shoulders is blindsided 8-3, with Kass
getting the other three votes.
The next day, the immunity challenge is held early in the morning.
Those who wanted to compete could, while the rest slept.
Erinn, Kass, Tyson, and J'Tia competed, with Erinn winning.
The Timbira alliance meets to vote out another member of Morgan.
Tijuana and Lill meet back with Luzon, but are immediately
rejected. Lill coaxes them into working with them, because
blindsides and big moves equal jury votes.
Lill and J'Tia are the only two to have found their idols, while
Tyson remains idol-less.
At tribal council, the vote ties between Tyson and Tijuana.
Inevitably, it deadlocks 4-4, and neither side can agree on
voting someone out. Thus, Coach, J'Tia, Debbie, Erinn, Jerry,
Kass, Lill, Spencer, and Tyson draw rocks.
With luck never on their side, Lill manages to draw the rock
and leaves the game as the second jury member.

they are both four timers, others might want them off of the

They must arrange blocks by how Jeff arranges his. If a symbol
is wrong, the wrong player is out.
Debbie wins immunity, and talks to the others about stopping the
slaughter of Luzon and Tijuana.
Debbie and Erinn approach J'Tia, Kass, Spencer, and Tijuana about
joining up to get rid of Coach or Tyson. They agree on voting
out Tyson because he has already won.
The other Timbira members meet and agree to voting out Coach.
Debbie returns to Luzon and changes the idea to Coach, who is
a pathological liar.
At tribal council, Coach is voted out 7-2, with Tyson and Coach
voting for Tijuana.
Episode Ten: "Your Cocky Attitude is Giving Me Warts"
At the immunity challenge, Erinn wins immunity due to everyone
else being weakened by the storm.
At camp, Jerry tells Erinn she only win because everyone was tired
and jokingly says she would never have won had they been prepared.
Tijuana speaks up and says Jerry has done nothing but insult people.
He looks shocked and confused, but apologizes for offending her.
Tyson takes this as an opportunity to look for his idol while
everyone is arguing. He heads out to the beach and digs in a

to wait and see if she's a target.

The final seven sit around in the hot sun. Tyson meets with
Debbie and Erinn, and Debbie admits that the blindside of Coach

using it. Luzon and Tijuana have an unbreakable bond, and
Tyson says he will use the idol to stop that bond from
progressing to the final four.
Erinn wins immunity in the race challenge. Tyson and Debbie unite
and congratulate her.
They lurk in the woods, listening to J'Tia, Kass, Spencer, and

At tribal council, they all cast votes. Jeff asks for idol
plays, and Tyson stands. "Can't let the others win this game,
He hands the idol over and plays it on Debbie. J'Tia looks shocked

Tyson receives all four of the alliance's votes.
Tijuana is voted out 4-3, with four of Tyson's votes negated.
Episode Twelve: "Cheaters"
At the immunity challenge, Tyson trips Erinn 'accidentally' and
steals her immunity. She expresses disgust in him doing that, and
asks why he did it in the first place.
He claims he felt threatened and still promises that he is working
with she and Debbie.
J'Tia and Kass talk to Spencer about blindsiding Erinn, and
they agree to it.
In a confessional, Kass states that her game is lacking since
no blindsides have occured in a while. She moves and speaks
to Erinn and Debbie about flipping the game on Spencer or J'Tia.
Tyson works with her, and they prepare to blindside one of Luzon's

However, Debbie receives the next two votes, and is blindsided
4-2, with J'Tia's guess vote being correct.
Back at camp, J'Tia decides that not enough chaos has been
caused. The two Timbira members, Tyson and Erinn, sit back and
watch J'Tia explode on Kass. She grabs Kass's ration of rice
and throws it into the fire, claiming that she was a traitor
and she didn't deserve to be in the game.
At the immunity challenge, J'Tia pushes her hardest and actually
wins an immunity for once.
Erinn and Tyson agree to get rid of Kass, but she has different
plans. Erinn and Kass vote out Tyson.
With a vote of 2-2 and a tie, Tyson and Kass compete in a
firemaking challenge. Tyson, being a four timer and former winner,
fails the challenge surprisingly, and Kass guarantees herself
a spot in the final three.
At the final tribal council, RyanS, Lill, Coach, Jerry,
Tijuana, Spencer, Debbie, and Tyson approach J'Tia, Erinn, and
Kass and J'Tia are congratulated on somehow going to the end
