Immunity Challenge: When It Rains, It Pours

Winner: Chuck, Lily, Miku
Night of Day 14Edit
After Tribal Council, everyone applauded Ron on his move.
|“||I was blindsided last night. I can say that I did not expect Valjean to turn the tables on me, but I'm not happy about it. The only thing worse than lying is skim milk; which is water that's lying about being milk.||”|
Valjean felt on the bottom after having lead the charge against Ron, so he brought Bruce aside to ensure that they were still on good terms.
|“||My attempt to blindside Ron ended in failure. The bright side about it is that everyone was behind me on it, but Kano was ringed out. That means that without that Wand in his pocket, we could easily do it again.||”|
The three tribes arrived to face their next challenge, where laughter erupted upon seeing Kano out, including from MAYU. The challenge and reward were revealed, Chuck sat out for Gongguan.
Kyary, IA, and Miku were the stranded castaways for their respective tribes. Zhongliao and Gongguan battled for the lead, but Zhongliao rescued Miku first and started to head back. Nanliao then caught up to Gongguan, as Zhongliao struggled to turn around. Gongguan rescued Kyary and caught up to Zhongliao. After a close match, Gongguan stole the lead and returned to shore, winning reward.
Before being given their reward, Gongguan had to exile two people. After brief discussion, they agreed to send IA and MAYU to Exile Island. The girls bid farewell to their tribes as everyone returned to their respective camps.
|“||I'm surprised to see IA and MAYU get exiled, I thought our alliance had the majority on Gongguan. This seems very fishy to me, but what do I know?||”|
At Gongguan, Kyary made instant use of the blankets and took a nap.
|“|| それは15日寒かった、私は最終的にいくつかの暖かいものを持ってうれしいです。 それはそれのようには見えないかもしれませんが、ここでは快適に過ごすことができます。
Rough Translation: It has been a cold fifteen days, I'm happy we finally have some warm stuff. It may not seem like it, but comfort goes a long way out here.
Barry and Goro had a conversation about their enemies. Goro suggested that Leifang might actually be a bigger threat than Luka, which was something Barry had to consider.
|“||I've been thinking, which is weird, I know. But what if Luka is not the biggest foe here? If what Chuck told me is true, Leifang has been flipping like a maniac since the beginning. We may have to bring her down.||”|
Leifang and Luka spoke with Chuck, telling him about their plan to vote out Goro, who would be the most threatening come merge.
|“||Leifang and Luka tried to convince me to go against Goro because he's too strong and likable. I can see where they're coming from, but I don't think it's right. I think the next person to go should be one of those two.||”|
On Zhongliao, Miku and Mileena did some talking. Miku explained that their cross-tribal allies might not be trustworthy, to which Mileena told Miku to rely on herself before others.
|“||Miku is worried because her pals on Gongguan sent two of her other pals to Exile Island... How sad. Above all else, trust yourself. You never know when someone else might stab you. Hell, maybe I'll be the one to do it, hehehe...||”|
Ramsay and Reptile talked long-term in the shelter, fearing that Miku had the biggest case to win. However, they knew they needed to flush her Wand.
|“||We need to get Miku out of here, but we can't as long as she's protected. If she can use that Wand on either herself or someone else, we remove her shield and we can strike. One thing's certain, we can't let her make the merge.||”|
On Nanliao, Bruce and Ron bonded over manly talk on the beach.
|“||I'm surprised Ron actually talked to me after I tried to, you know, vote him out last night. He didn't even mention it, just told me stories about hunting and so on. This could be very good for me.||”|
Elsewhere, Lily came to a strange conclusion regarding Miku's Magic Wand, and told it to Valjean. She wondered how Ron could also have had one if Miku did.
|“||Something seems weird to me. If Ron used his Magic Wand, how can Miku also have one? Most returning players seasons only have one Magic Wand pre-merge. Not to mention Miku's happened to pop up when she was being targeted. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Miku's been deceiving us all. But what are the chances of that, am I right?||”|
On Exile Island, IA and MAYU met up and compared notes. IA mentioned how there was still tension between Lily and Miku, but MAYU explained that Miku was her closest ally. This complicated things for the vocaloids.
|“||After talking with MAYU, I have no choice but quote Kagamine Rin and Len on my feelings toward Miku. "I love you, I hate you, I don't know." On one hand it would be good to oppose her and please Lily, but maybe I can give Lily a change of heart and keep Miku in our alliance. I really don't know what to think.||”|
MAYU told IA that Ramsay had the Holy Grail, which got the girls searching. After a while, neither of them could find the new Grail.
|“||I want to keep IA close on our cross-tribal alliance, but we need to get rid of Ramsay's Grail. I really don't want to have to vote Reptile out next, but we might not have a choice. This Grail doesn't seem to be anywhere.||”|
At the challenge, Luke took the Immunity Idol back and pulled out three necklaces, informing the tribes that they would be competing for individual Immunity and all three would be voting someone out. He then pointed out that Ramsay played his Holy Grail, meaning that he was immune and ineligible to compete. Gongguan started off.
Shortly into the challenge, Barry accidentally moved and dropped out. Luka soon followed, followed by Goro, followed by Leifang. Chuck and Kyary competed for a short period of time, before Kyary slipped and allowed Chuck to win Immunity on Gongguan.
Early into Nanliao, Ron dropped out. IA soon followed. Bruce, Valjean, and Lily held on for some time. After a while, Valjean dropped out. It was a close match between Bruce and Lily, but a slight slip from Bruce gave Lily Immunity on Nanliao.
Zhongliao went last. All four competitors held on for a bit over an hour, but Reptile eventually slipped and dropped out. Mileena soon followed, leaving the two vocaloids to battle it out. After a short time, MAYU dropped out, allowing Miku to win Immunity on Zhongliao.
Luke presented Chuck, Lily, and Miku with their necklaces; telling the tribes that they would all have separate dates with him at Tribal Council.
|“||With Lily immune, our choices are open tonight. Do we want to side with Valjean and get rid of Ron? Do we want to side with Ron and get rid of Valjean? Or do we want to come together and take out IA? I can rest easy knowing I'm the only one without my name being thrown around tonight.||”|
At Gongguan, everyone congratulated Chuck on his win. The actor was quick to bring Barry and Goro aside to plan their vote for Leifang.
|“||Fortunately I'm immune tonight, so I don't have to worry about being seen as a threat for now. This allows me to actually play harder than usual, so let's get Leifang.||”|
Luka brought Kyary and Leifang together to agree on voting Goro.
|“||The tribe is split in three ways. I'm sure Kyary and Leifang will stick with me to vote Goro, but the three guys are definitely working together and probably planning my elimination as we speak. Ooh, super scary Luka. She's such a huge threat, she needs to go!||”|
Barry and Chuck privately talked to Luka and Kyary each to reach an agreement on voting Leifang, but Luka tried to convince them that Goro would need to go sooner.
|“||Luka is protecting Leifang, she seems convinced that Goro has got to go. But luckily I think Kyary is more likely to slip. If we keep stretching it, maybe we can flip her.||”|
On Nanliao, Valjean went to Ron to make up. Ron told him that he could prove himself by voting for Bruce.
|“||Ron is a hard man, he is not easily cracked. He's telling me that I must vote Bruce in order to regain his trust. That is not promising.||”|
IA and Lily planned their vote, thinking it best to vote out Ron since it failed last time.
|“||We tried to vote out Ron before, we failed, why change pace now? Let's keep at it until we get him out. Easy plan.||”|
IA and Lily were then approached by Valjean, who told them a change of plans to vote Bruce instead. This both shocked and aggravated the girls.
|“||So Valjean, you got us all set and ready to vote Ron, then you just turn around and say "Nah, let's vote Bruce instead." Seriously man, make up your mind! If you're this inconsistent, maybe you'll be wanting to write my name down soon!||”|
Bruce talked with Valjean, with the latter telling him Ron's name. Bruce then went to Ron to suggest Valjean.
|“||To my knowledge, Valjean has a target for trying to make a move. He's telling me the vote is still Ron, but I don't know. Nobody has really approached me since we got back to camp. Could I have been too cocky for my own good? I guess tonight will tell.||”|
On Zhongliao, Ramsay made it his goal to convince MAYU, Miku, and Mileena to turn on each other. He tried to talk to Mileena, but she wasn't interested.
|“||Mileena is blatantly refusing to turn on her allies, even when I make the argument that it would improve her game greatly. She is such an idiot sandwich. The best strategy is to either take her or MAYU out, and to do that I will need to turn them on each other.||”|
Ramsay and Reptile agreed on the plan to turn the vocaloids against each other, going to MAYU to convince her to turn on Mileena.
|“||According to Ramsay and Reptile; if I vote Mileena, I'll improve my stance out here because she'll be gone and our alliance won't look as threatening. I hate to say it, but they have a point.||”|
MAYU went to Miku to tell her about potentially voting Mileena, but Miku wasn't certain. Miku went to Mileena to tell her about MAYU considering to flip.
|“||I think MAYU wants to vote me out. If she thinks it will do her good out here, she's tragically mistaken... Would it be wrong to change course of voting Reptile to vote MAYU? These are the real questions to consider...||”|
At Gongguan's Tribal Council, the sides became obvious, divided by gender. Both sides made their cases as to why the others should flip, but it didn't seem to help. They then cast their votes. The men voted for Leifang, and the women voted for Goro. However, Kyary flipped on her allies and cast her vote for Leifang, eliminating her 4-2. Now on the bottom, Luka sighed as the tribe returned to camp.
At Nanliao's Tribal, Ron explained that his trust was destroyed by the previous vote, but Valjean insisted that he would make it up to him. This came as a surprise to Bruce, IA, and Lily. Valjean did as he said and cast his vote for Bruce, but everyone else voted for Valjean and eliminated him.
At Zhonglia's Tribal, Mileena accused people in her alliance of being disloyal, which MAYU defended herself for. Ramsay and Reptile exploited it, trying to tear MAYU and Mileena apart. Miku sighed, knowing it would be between them. The voting began, as everyone sided with Mileena and eliminated MAYU. After snuffing the final torch of the night, Luke reminded the tribe that the game is constantly changing and nothing is ever set in place. Zhongliao returned to camp with their torches.

|“||I hope to see you heading out tonight. It'll make this game a lot easier.||”|
|“||Please be you and not me.||”|
|“||I'm writing your name with all four of my arms, ha ha!||”|
|“||It's for the best.||”|
|“||Well, they got me good. I thought I could make it with my allies, but I guess I was just too untrustworthy. Oh well, I played hard and am proud of myself. I didn't expect Kyary to flip on me, so I wish her good luck. I also wish luck to Luka, and everyone else!||”|

|“||I said I would, and I am.||”|
|“||What we learned is that it helps to be a man of your word, as well as to stay consistent. I tried to make a move against Ron and it failed, so I could not make it up to him afterwards. I dug my own grave, and I'll own up to it. This was an enjoyable experience, and I hope those who remain enjoy it all the same.||”|

|“||Have a vote, you've earned it.||”|
|“||Ouch, the first vocaloid has fallen! Ha ha ha, I had fun. Getting to play again was a huge honor, and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. It would have been nice to have gone farther, but I regret nothing.||”|
