I know I might get some flack for this one, but I hope to enlighten some of you as to why this was so ridiculous! It also put some people in a majority and others in a minority until the end of the game. Also, I loved some of the characters in Survivor: China, and this moment caused quite a spark from that time until all the way to the Final Tribal Council.
Danny P wants Eclipse gone but i need Eclipse for the votes. So i'm trying to convince him not to but the guy is so persistent. Like, think for a second. Please.
I need a solid alliance of 5 to shine soon or else my game is over. I have a solid alliance of 3. I need 2 more people. I think i can get gaia and eclipse to join the alliance of myself, glinda and m0nkey.
Tonight, i need someone to go that no one really cares about, someone like TDA.
Conversation between Newz, Joey, Danny S, and Jette:
Joey T (#TheEclipse):
"keep the ORIGINAL xiang mao together?"
Danny S ( Chantra1):
"So yay we merged! This game feels like it's going quickly. The old Xiang Mao consisting of myself, jette, eclipse, and oldnews got together and regrouped. My problem with this is if we go back to our original alliances, its 5-4 and i'm in the 4. Not good. So I asked Cory and Chris if we are still good, and as much as I would hate to further myself with them, if they're my only option, i'll take whatever is the best move for me."
"We have merged! My old tribe has a 5-4 majority, and OldNewz, Jette, & Chantra are potential allies. I am in an excellent spot at the moment. However, I am probably gonna stick with my tribe tonight with voting Jette. The other side is doing TDA.
Gonna talk with a few others until i decide what to do.
I'm gonna lay low when it comes to challenges, but I want to develop social bonds with people and try to manipulate the game into my favor."
Cory ( Lifer107):
"This tribal is a clusterfuck. My "alliance" of Gaia, Chantra, JETTEJ, and I is still standing strong, even though I voted JETTEJ last time. But I'm pretty sure they think I voted with them, because Chantra and JETTEJ want to target TDA.
On the other side of the ballcourt we have m0nkey and glinda wanting to target JETTEJ. Out of the four original Xiong Maos, JETTEJ is probably the weakest. This shows me that they have to have something going on with eclipse and oldnewz so that's annoying.
Still not sure how I'm gonna vote."
At this point, it had seemed like Glinda was for sure flipping, but this was not the end all, be all. And of course, Matt had not submitted a confessional, so for me it was a question as to what was going to happen, and what I pondered could happen actually DID happen.
We have a tie between Jette and Matt. Here's how this will work. Everyone, but Jette and Matt will revote. If we have an additional tie because someone doesn't vote then the individual(s) responsible for not voting will be eligible to leave the game and Jette and Matt will be safe as well as all who voted."
And so, the strangest thing happened...
I'll go tally the votes."
"Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately.
Danny S. ( Chantra1):
"In your faces motherf*ckers
*Pats myself on the back*
I took your own game and turned it around on you. It's gunna get real fun.
Well that's 2 blindsides I'm now responsible for. I think that if I get to the end I have a real good shot of winning it. And now it seems like it might be 4-4, but I sense that my allies and I are going to come out of it A o.k.
Now I just need to decide who I want in my final 3.
Definately Glinda, she's a close friend of mine and never does enough to win, and another player who's been riding coattails.....but who."
Newz ( OldNewz):
"I have no idea how i pulled that off. I somehow managed to keep the army strong."
Joey T. ( TheEclipse):
"YAS, WE PULLED IT OFF. WE REALLY PULLED IT OFF.
So, Newz and I were talking, and we figured we should get former Xiang Mao back together, despite being a minority. We did that, and we worked on trying to flip three people: m0nkey, Glinda, and Gaia (I'm still not 100% sure who flipped! XD)
We were fucking praying to the lawd and saviah jesus that we'd manage to get majority or at least a tie. And a tie is what we got. THANK YOU RANDOM PERSON WHO VOTED ME. I MUST FIND YOU!"
If you're still wondering why this is the #4 in the list, here's why:
•Xiong Mao was in a 5-4 minority and needed one Long to flip and gain the game, and they got one person.
•Long would have been in the 5-4 majority had Matt voted for Jette.
•Glinda decided to flip and vote for Matt in the revote with no concise confessional as to why she did it, but it is presumed she was convinced by any number of the Xiong Mao members.
•Most of the Xiong Mao members or Long members weren't aware straight away of who flipped.
•This move allowed three out of the four Xiong Mao members to get to the final three, essentially.
•Newz and Joey T. found controversy later in this move because Danny S. had a previous "friendship" with Glinda before the game, but I argue that it wasn't obviously strong enough for her to flip beforehand, yet the move was set aside by Danny S. at the Final Tribal Council as well. No one was able to take the majority of the credit.
So as you can tell, there were a lot of factors during the vote and even after the vote which just makes this moment a cherry on top of an iced cake.
