This promised to be an epic fight to the end and it was!
JLuv’s Jokers made the first hit, with the hyenas dashing after Brenda’s Benchwarmers yipping and nipping until they brought the elephant herd down.
Droppa Mapantz took out Curare Bowhunters. The hippos’ hide was too tough for Curare’s poison darts to penetrate so the hippos charged right over them and forced them to flee. Droppa couldn’t overtake Mike Hunt’s Protection Plan, though, so the ospreys remained ahead of them.
Team Maybs unseated Caramoaning to claim the overall victory! The gorillas reclaimed the throne they held from episode 2 to episode 6 and ended the season where they began—in first place. The zebras of Caramoaning were badly injured in the final duel and dropped back to third place. Burning Love moved up to claim second place.
After the dust settled and all wounds were patched up,
Jeff Probst arrived by helicopter to give out awards.
R2maybs (Team Maybs) won the pool and gets a commemorative avatar to celebrate their win!
JohnnyK (The Natural Blues) came in last place
and gets the Wooden Spoon Award as their consolation prize.
Honorable Mentions to Midol (Burning Love) and Arielflies (Caramoaning) for placing second and third. You both chose your teams well and gave a valiant effort at going for the win.
You didn't make this an easy victory for r2maybs.
Congratulations to all the winners for a job well done!
I hope everyone enjoyed their experience in the pool! We have to wait until September to do another Survivor pool but I look forward to it and hope everyone will participate again. As always, if you have any comments or suggestions, let me know! Tell me how the reserve team member option worked for you. The only thing I didn’t like about it was there wasn’t much movement on the leaderboard until reserve members had been used up but overall I think it worked out well. Nobody had to be short on tribe members until the add/replace week came or had to worry about missing the opportunity to change their team.
