I do not post at Sucks and don't even read the spoilers/speculation over there but I had to today. I heard that the information in one of the threads over at Sucks was "fairly accurate", "very accurate".
This is what I know:
-It only rained about 4 days that were bad and other days it sprinkled but it was mostly nice. It was not as bad as season 25 that had about 18 days of straight rain.
-It was humid out there all the time and even little bug bites or cuts and scrapes didn't heel or took a long time to heel.
-There were 10 returning players on one tribe (favorites) orange and black buffs vs 10 completely new (fans) purpleish buffs
-The merge buff is green the merge tribe name is strange and supposed to be filipino.
-Many of the fans were very knowledgeable about the game and even details from the past moreso than the fans on fans vs favorites 1
-The game starts with the 10 fans arriving by boat and they wait on the beach as the favorites arrive by helicopter. There is a reward challenge right off and the favorites win it.
-The first immunity challenge is one by the fans and Francesca plays the same game as last time and comes out too strong and even though she made pregame deals is first gone.
-There is one swap that lasted for 2 tribal councils and then they merged. (I will give more information on this when the season starts.)
-8 jury members and a final 3 I asked if 8 on jury because of medivac and they said yes
-Merge at final 12 and jury was supposed to be 9
-Many of the returning players play a different game then the first time around and for some they get blasted because of it at the final tribal.
-Brenda is not in final 3
-The final 3 is Sherry Cochran and Dawn
-I had red through Missyae that there was a medivac late in the game and my source agreed that there was not just one of them.
-I had read through Missyae that Brandon went nuts and was sent home immediately and my source agreed that was true.
-I had read through Missyae that their were multiple idles played this season and my source agreed this was true.
This is what Beatlebum79 at Sucks has said in this thread link I had not read any of this when I found out the stuff above I am putting what I know to be confirmed below each.:
Post 1 (6/23/12):
1. Survivor 26 is Survivor Caramoan: Fans & Favorites
This is true
2. Season started with 2 tribes of 10 castaways.
3. The names of returning players given to me in the "Survivor 26 - Returning Players Speculation" thread are indeed correct, but with the addition of Malcolm. When I asked my source which returning castaway on the list is not returning since adding Malcolm makes it 11 returning castaways, my source did not reply.
True and Missyae had the same info Malcom Freburg who loves Johhny Fairplay and even pulled a stunt at the family visit switching identity with his brother. He wasn't as much of a villan on this season. By the way, Malcom finished season 25 in 4th place.
4. Malcolm is indeed from Survivor Philippines. He is described by my source as "tall and long-haired". He's already voted off but is a member of the jury.
5. Somebody asked me in the other thread to ask my source if it's Erik Reichenbach (Micronesia) or Erik Cardona (Samoa). My source described Erik as "tall, thin, and has curly hair". It's safe to assume that it's Micronesia's Erik based on my source's description.
This is true it is Eric Rekenback
Are you sure you want to know the Final 6 spoilers? If not, leave the thread. If you're sure, proceed.
6. The final 6 castaways are 4 favorites and 2 fans.
I don't know for sure if this is true but I do know that at final six the favorites did outnumber the fans by reading a Missyae post and this was confirmed by my source.
7. The names of the 2 fans are Eddie & Sheiry. (as spelled by my source)
I heard Sherry but didn't ask for spelling
8. The names of the 4 favorites are Brenda, Erik, Cochran & Dawn (?)
This is true
9. Dawn has question mark because she was not named by my source. My source just described the other final 6 castaway as "an older woman". Since Cochran was in the list and he's a known ally of Dawn, I asked my source if her name is Dawn and my source said yes.
Dawn is correct
Post 131 (6/27/12)-
New spoiler #1: There is no truth to Brandon punching Malcolm that is why he got the boot. But he had an outburst during a challenge. He threw fits against his tribemates that it was decided to hold a tribal council right there and then. He was voted out in that instant tribal council. (That's my loose English translation of what my source told me. My source didn't provide details unfortunately.
This is true and Missyae has said the same thing. Note: Brandon was seen posting youtube videos as of June 14 which was around day 28 in the game so how many days did it take to get home and did he start posting right away?
Post 142 (6/27/12)-
Survivor Caramoan: Fans & Favorites Jury Members (in no particular order):
Erik (F4 boot)
The final 3 is true the rest is considered to be "fairly accurate".
I asked why there was only 11 names when merge usually happens at 12 remaining castaways. My source did not reply. It's either Brandon was supposed to be part of the jury or my source forgot 1 name. Or maybe they threw the castaways under the bus when they didn't merge at 12. Kind of like having the castaways believed there was a merge in Survivor Thailand.
The 11 part is true, the other is his spec that I can't confirm
Post 258 (7/2/12):
New spoiler 1: There was no mixed tribes at the start. It's fans tribe versus favorites tribe.
New spoiler 2: There was a merge at 12. Brandon was supposed to be part of it.
True about the merge at 12. He seems pretty sure about Brandon here but my source conflicts with this
New spoiler 3: It's Final 3. Not Final 2.
True, also Missyae has posted same
New spoiler 4: Francesca was 2nd or 3rd voted out.
Not true. My source and Missyae both say Francesca is first out.
New spoiler 5: Corinne went out pre-merge.
Post 266 (7/3/12)
New spoiler 6: This is so weird but my source insists Sheiry is a favorite. I asked my source if it's Cirie but my source said she's white and slightly younger than Dawn. I still think Sheiry is a fan who allied with the favorites that is why my source mistook her as one.
I believe that his spec that Sherry allied with the favorites and that is why she was mistaken as a favorite is correct but at this point I can't say why.
New spoiler 7: Dawn orchestrated the Brenda boot. Brenda got so angry and even called Dawn a "killer" during the final tribal council. Most of the jury are angry at Dawn during the final tribal council.
I can not confirm this but I know that Missyae posted that their was a catfight and some of his favorite girls were involved and they still aren't speaking today so it sounds easily like this could have been cause of it.
I know that Missyae spoiled that Brenda picked Dawn as part of the family reward visit and then gave up her own and if that is true Brenda would feel double stabbed by Dawn betraying her.
Missyae said that the person blasted at the final tribal was affected enough that they had to seek professional help after the game.
New spoiler 8: Erik was "medivac" but not because of physical injury. My source said he got affected so much by the Brenda boot that he sort of had a breakdown and was taken out of the game. He eventually came back for the final tribal council also angry at Dawn.
I can not confirm this but Missyae did spoil that their was a late medivac that dashed the dreams of one favorite. He also spoiled the medical name as Psychosomativally which makes sense compared to beetlebum's description of it.
New spoiler 9: My source thinks Cochran won.
I can not confirm this. I do know that more then 1 got blasted at the final tribal.
That is it for now. I know that Missyae has a ton of sources that have been spot on and it looks like beetlebum for this season has some good intel to.
