Six for each of you, DK and Pepper.

Intended deadline is Monday night at 9 Central. Let me know if this is unrealistic and I’ll extend for a day.

Also, you’re allowed a jury plea as well. I’d make a word limit, but Novak isn’t in the final two so we’re probably good. The jury plea will be posted below the answers on the post.

We’re here, gang! Brian and Brendan have carefully read and considered your questions, and in the end decided that none of you were worth the effort it would take to give answers. Sorry, gang. The season ends in a draw.

…okay, that went in a direction I didn’t see coming. Let’s give answers and pleas, and you can all look deep within your souls and cast a vote based on which of these people is your brother. Or something else, I don’t know.

Okay, Brendan and Brian. We’ve reached the finale and now you have to prove how awesome you are.

The jury has come up with a slate of questions for each of you, and you are to answer them by Thursday night at 9pm Central. Additionally, if anything you want to say isn’t covered by a question, you also have a “jury plea” of 1000 words or fewer with which to talk about how you played this season.

Got it, guys? Okay. Here are your questions; answer the ones prefaced by your name.


Brian/Brendan: What were your favorite/least favorite stories that you wrote this season?

Brian: In what ways did you change the course of the game?

Brian: Who were your closest allies during the game, and how did having them (or losing them) affect the way you played?

Brian: Do you feel you managed to get to the final two based on strategy and game play, or solely upon your spectacular writing skills?

Brian: How many times did you go into a week believing you had to get immunity or you were a goner?

Brian: If you win this, will your sister ever stop hearing about it?

Brendan: At what point during the day had you decided that you were going to vote out Annette and force a tie?

Brendan: What would have happened had you won the final immunity?

Brendan: What was your plan, post merge? How were you hoping to stick out from the pack as the game began to wind down?

Brendan: Did you have specific plans throughout the game, and if so, when did they work out and when did they not? How would you separate yourself from the plans of your major allies?

Brendan: Most new players are pretty passive, especially at first. Did you feel that way at first, and was there a point during the game where it switched and you felt like you belonged and were in control?


Cheers, Survivors

Jurors, my apologies for the insane length of this post. Finalists, I am very pleased by your commitment to the game, and that you’re trying to win. Onward!

Jurors, answer your own and send them to me via email. Also, add a final plea with anything else you feel you need to cover. You’ll note not everyone asked questions and some people only asked them of one person. They were allowed to do this, so nothing is actually missing.



To Hope: When you found out my true identity, did you use that against me to try and destroy my game? Do you regret any moves or decisions you made to get where you are? Or did you in fact actually make any moves or decisions on your own before the last stage of the game? I need 100% truth because my vote is in the balance.

To Sass: You were loyal the entire time we played together, and so much fun to play with…After I was booted by the idol, I knew anyone aligned with me was in trouble but I expected one or two to slip through the cracks if they could play it right…and here you are! I couldn’t be more proud of you or happy to see you in the final two. You’ve worked hard and you deserve it. That being said my question is if you could replace Hope with any two jurors to make it a final 3, who do you think deserves the spots? (I’m not fishing for you to answer me, so don’t feel obligated to include me in that if I’m not your answer) Congrats, Sass!


Ok here are my questions for the jury!

Congratulations to both Sass and Hope for making it to the final 2. I have one question for each of you.

Sass: You played a virtually invisible game early on, and I didn’t hear much of or about you until the end of the game. I don’t doubt that there is a strategic player deep down, but I haven’t had the chance to see it. Before I can consider voting for you, I need to hear more about you and why you deserve my vote. My question to you is what was your strategy initially coming into this season and how did it change as the season progressed?

Hope: We did talk on a few occasions, and from what I can tell you are a decent person; however, I saw nothing from you game wise. I’m not one to usually take crazy risks in my games *chuckles* but at least I think for myself. It didn’t seem like you were making decisions for yourself at all! Instead, it seemed like every decision was being made for you and you were simply “riding coattails to the end” as they would say on the show, so frustrating to watch quite honestly. I would like to know if there was any game move, or decision for that matter, that you made on your own? I’m sorry, but I just don’t see you as someone who did much when at all game wise, prove me wrong.


Congratulations to both of you! Making it to the end is not easy, so the fact that you both were able to make it is impressive. That being said I have a question for each of you, my mind is not made up and the way you answer mine as well as others will determine who gets my vote to win.

Sass: my fellow c.I member! I am so happy to see you making it to the end, slowly the alliance crumbled and I felt I would be seeing you on the jury, so I am relieved you’re not! What would you say you are most proud about of your gameplay? And if you could change one thing about it what would you do?

Hope: I view your game differently then I do with Sass. From my perspective you stuck with your alliance and was too scared to make moves until you were forced to. Was that your plan the whole time? Get into an alliance and slip through to the end? Or did you end up doing that just as an easy way out?

Good luck to you both may the best win!


This question goes to both finalists:

You’re trapped in a basement that’s filling up with water and your leg is caught. It’s filling fast and your only hope of escape is the window above you. There’s a zombie coming at you, ready to make a sandwich out of your face. You have only 2 things within reach to use. You must use one to fight the zombie, but using it will render it useless in your escape from the basement. The other must be used in some way after killing the zombie. The two items are a flotation device and a baby harp seal. What do you do, and why?

Hard question from Hardwood.


Sass, you were ostensibly collaborating with Hope in the final challenge. So why were you feeding info to Toothless via coded messages in the group chat?

Another question for Sass:
Once the game got down to the final 5 players, you had a clear path to the end. But what about before that? How clear of an endgame plan did you have, and what key actions did you take to act on that plan?


my question for Hope: you made such a big deal all game about loyalty. So why did you turn on Nuggets, causing her to be eliminated?


To Hope: Describe your strategy after the Smash elimination. What was your strategy to stay in the game, and what did you do to put yourself in the best position possible?


Both: What significant alliances did you make throughout the game? What made them work/not work and how did you use those alliances to your advantage?

Both: Describe your strategy and how it developed during the course of the game.
Which challenge was the most important for you and why?


Both: Who was your greatest influencer pre and post merge, and how did you compensate when they were voted out? Also who were you most successful influencing?

Howdy do, jurors. Read all of this and make a vote (with a comment, please) to win. That is, I want the name of the winner to be listed here, not the one you’re voting out.

Let’s hear from our final two in alphabetical order.

Both: What pivotal move did you make that brought you to the final two? Next, name the most pivotal event in the game for you.

Both: Describe your strategy and how it developed during the course of the game?

Both: Which challenge was the most important for you and why?

Gloom: Many of us on the jury can claim final two with you. When did you decide on Spacegirl?

Spacegirl: Convince us you were Gloom’s partner, not her pawn?

Spacegirl: You were fairly outspoken in your voting. Was this strategy or emotion? Do you regret any of the stuff you said, now that some of those people are jury members?

Both: If you could be any tree, which would you choose and why?


Have answers to me, as well as the final plea, by Sunday night at 8pm Central. Realistically I’ll extend if we need to, but hey, let’s not need to.

Cheers, Survivors.

We’re here! I’m fielding questions and moves from Survivor XVI players, though, so let’s dispense with the long opening and save it all for the winner announcement tomorrow night.

Erik and Pepper, here you go. Answer these and add anything else you want in a plea not to exceed 1000 words. There will be no word limit on responses to questions, as I trust you both know the line between explanation and logorrhea. Fun Fact: Chrome is not smart enough to know the word “logorrhea.” Maybe that’s an intentional thing on their part to eradicate it. OOOOHHHH, META

Should I get to the questions? I should get to the questions.

For Erik

When you started this game, who were your final 5, 4, 3 and 2? Is that how the game turned out? If not, what happened along the way to change your plans?

What would you consider to be your pivotal strategic move this season that got you to the finals?

Given her immunity run, do you regret not eliminating Christina with five players left? Why do you think you deserve to win more than Christina?

Were you loyal to Christina throughout the game, or did you consider (and/or act on) getting rid of her at any point?

What do you consider to be your greatest moment as far as your writing goes?
