Night of Day 6: Post tribal council, the jeep that transports the survivors back to their camp makes a left at the fork in the road and takes them all to Exile Oasis instead.
Malcolm: So we've survived yet another strangely dramatic tribal council only to find out that we can't decompress from it in private. We drive up to the Oasis and not only are Grant and Chelsea there but both remaining Sylvania and Panamint members too. Of course, the first question is....What took you so long to boot Cha?
Cheisl: Okay. This is weird. It's waaay too early for a merge. Yet, we're all together at Exile Oasis. We all still have our original buffs, so I'm not falling prey to a "fake" merge scenario, but something is certainly up. Not to mention that Grant and Chelsea are certainly chummy and if I'm not mistaken, there is a keg. Oh boy, it's gonna be a bumpy night.
tribehost: Welcome, Survivors! All of you have been gathered here for the third cycle as it seems the temperatures are actually going to go waaay above safety levels. Some forecasters are saying up to 130°F/54°C on day 8. Therefore we felt it safer to keep you all here for awhile. The game will continue... but for now, the buffet is set and the bar is OPEN, enjoy.
Rob M.: What kind of madness is this? Is it like an actual emergency like situation or sumthin' or is it just a chance to mingle. Whatevah, there's beeah heeah.
Steph V.: A merge at 16? Highly doubtful but I do think tribehost has something up his sleeve.
tribehost: As you can plainly see, I do not require clothing, I am made of clay and therefore do not have sleeves to hide things in. However, you are correct, young lady. I do have plans that I have not revealed to you yet. In truth I'm hoping this little diversion breaks down some of those walls and build up others at the same time. Twists are meant to keep you off guard some of you end up making crucial cross-tribal alliances that get "you" further in the game, some others are sure to perhaps drink too much, make ill decisions and end up in compromising positions tomorrow. When I drop the REAL bomb. Tata, tootsie!
As predicted, production is more than satisfied with the level of debauchery, mayhem, nausea and regrets that ensued.
Seems Rob is a fan of Beeah. And groping. His new nickname with some of the gals is Ted.
Grant and Chelsea decide to "get married", with Denise as the officiant, since she's the most official one present.
Troyzan and Ozzy get themselves involved in a baby-oil wrestling match I don't think ANYONE wants to see. I do recall a total of 4 "inappropriate entries" being logged into the judges books. 2 each. So it must be mutual.
And Lisa. Wow. Lisa. This woman is a belligerent drunk. And after 13 shots of tequila and 2 everclear jello shots, she had pretty much insulted everyone, hit, shoved or otherwise assaulted all of the guys (and Denise) including the bartender. Who obviously cut her off. She had to be restrained by security and was tied to a chair, left to cuss like a soccermom until she eventually passed out.
The remnants of the buffet were few. I do believe Pete won the "How many doughnuts can you eat in 1 minute" match he had with Malcolm.
The bar has not a single bottle stocked. Kat, in a never ending binge for more potable (potent or otherwise), ended up swigging the entire well of mixers. First the Vermouth, then the schnaaps, on to the triple sec and eventually the grenadine, elderflower syrup and olive juice.
The next morning, tribehost walks in to discover the aftermath of the 'party'.
*with a shake of the head and a smirk, he begins...
*bang bang bang*
"Wake up survivors!
*bang bang bang*
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
*bang bang bang*
We have to get on with the game!
May I please have Chelsea and Grant come forward?"
Chelsea, with a birdnest hairdo and various permanent markings on her body (including "sushi slut" and "for a good time call me cheesy"), comes forward holding her head and moaning.
Grant, with a technicolor yawn fronted tshirt and half-burnt shortshorts (which I believe are Stephanies?) steps up to the staging area as well.
Okay, you 2.
Seeing as how you have spent the last few days here at Exile Oasis, it is time for you to go back and join the game, as well as to determine who will take your place, here, for a couple of days.
Everyone, pass in your current buffs.
As of now, Amargosa is no more. Only Sylvania and Panamint remain as tribal camps.
And I hate to break this little lovenest up but...
Chelsea, you WERE a member of Panamint originally, therefore you are NOW a part of Sylvania.
And Grant, you WERE on Sylvania and are NOW a member of Panamint.
Now, time to build your tribes.
Chelsea, as a female, I will ask that you choose a male to join your tribe. Then Grant, you will choose a female for your tribe.
Then whichever male Chelsea chose will pick a female to join their tribe and the female on Panamint will choose a male, etc.
Alternating tribes and genders with each pick.
Until we are left with 2 males. 2 males that will be spending the next few days at Exile Oasis. Bypassing this cycles IC and TC.
Then, with the tribes even at 7 members each, we're gonna jump right in to IC3.
This post will mark the beginning of a tribal reshuffle, determine the next 2 exilees AND contain the challenge itself.
That's a lot to get through, let's see if we can do it.
The overall rule is YES, you may post multiple times during this cycle.
However, 3 messages must be present between your first one and your new one.
Any multiple post that does not adhere to this rule will be voided, skipped over and/or disregarded.
I will need 14 POSTS to determine the tribes and exilees.
Penner ~ Pete
Once the tribes and exilees are determined, the challenge is for tribal immunity and will begin immediately.
I will need an indeterminant amount of posters for the challenge.
Again, you may post multiple times for this challenge but you must adhere to the "3-between" rule.
The challenge itself is called "Clean up this Mess!"
Each tribe has 7 trash bags, one per member.
These trashbags hold 50 pieces of trash each.
I have personally picked up 42 pieces of trash and distributed them evenly between trashbags, to start them off.
Once a survivor has filled their bag, they gain 2 gold stars for their tribe.
The first tribe to 12 gold stars will win immunity.
The losing tribe will go to TC and vote someone out.
The challenge will run like so...
Using these three denominations (+1) (-3) (+5) please add or subtract pieces of trash from or to 3 survivor's trashbags.
Please, please, please check your work and the work of the posters before you. Yes, sorry suzzee, it's a "math" challenge, so keeping up on your addition/subtraction skills is very important.
Troyzan: 3 (+1) = 4
Penner: 3 (+5) = 8
Steph V: 3
Rob M: 3 (-3) = 0
WE ARE READY... Go!
Rob M: 3
Steph V: 3
