Lying and Lying is the fifth episode of Survivor: The New All-Stars.
Immunity Challenge: Boats, Brains, and Brawn
The three tribes would run out and push their tribal boats into the water. Paddling out to retrieve puzzle crates, they would have to dive down underwater to release the boxes. Once all crates were retrieved and brought back to shore, the tribes would stack the crates into a staircase with the name of this season "The New All-Stars" properly aligned along the sides. Then, one member of each tribe would solve a puzzle giving them the combination to retrieve the correct key. The first two tribes to run to the top of the tower, unlock and pull a lever, releasing the tribe flag, would win.
Winner: Gongguan, Nanliao
Night of Day 10Edit
After Tribal Council on Gongguan, Lily refused to say a word. The tribe was disappointed, but Miku was content.
|“||They tried to vote me out last night, but guess who's still here? Not only that, but they all think I have a Magic Wand! This could not be better. I can really use this to scare people. None of them want to vote me, because I'll just throw their votes back at them! Ha ha ha, revenge is sweet.||”|
Goro and Kano were especially torn up, but Valjean assured them that Miku would meet her end soon enough.
|“||Well, our plan failed. We thought Miku was going to play a Magic Wand, then she didn't. Now she still has it and can continue to run this tribe as long as she threatens people with it. This is not what I expected to happen, but I do have faith that our situation will soon improve.||”|
On Zhongliao, Chuck and Ron were disappointed in Reptile for flipping. Reptile told them that he had wanted Morgan out for a while, so he saw it as no big deal to vote her out.
|“||Had it been anyone besides Morgan, I probably wouldn't have flipped. But because it was Morgan, heh. Bye bye. I hope this doesn't damper my relationships with Chuck and Ron, they're mature enough to take a little deception.||”|
Luka went to talk to Kyary and Leifang, welcoming them into her alliance. The flippers were in favor of aligning with Luka, knowing that the others would not trust them.
|“||Voting Morgan was not an easy decision. I had to do a lot of thinking before I made my choice. I knew that if Kyary and I were to join the vocaloids, we would have Mileena too. So we could overcome their majority easily. I didn't trust Morgan at all, so the vote became relatively obvious. Once I told Kyary about it, she went along too. If we can take out Reptile, Chuck, and Ron, we're on the high ground.||”|
The tribes arrived, expecting a Hero Duel, but were surprised to see nothing set up. Laughter was exchanged upon seeing both Camelot players gone. Luke then arrived and told the castaways to drop their buffs and pick out new ones from two trays. With the sudden tribe switch, everyone was eager.
After grabbing random buffs, everyone opened them to reveal their new tribes. It was then announced that they would be switching into three tribes of six. The new Gongguan was made up of Barry, Chuck, Goro, Kyary, Leifang, and Luka. The new Zhongliao was made up of Bass, MAYU, Miku, Mileena, Ramsay, and Reptile. The third tribe; Nanliao, was Bruce, IA, Kano, Lily, Ron, and Valjean. The tribes are shown below.
After Nanliao received their directions to camp, the new tribes were off.
|“||Switching tribes was probably a good thing for me. Now Bass and Ramsay should be in the minority here, so I'm in good shape. Let's win this, shall we?||”|
On Gongguan, everyone greeted each other with delight.
|“|| 私はここですべての部族の中で終わったことをうれしく思います。 私の同盟国はここにチャック様しかいないので、これがうまく終わらない方法はありません！ 私は願います。
Rough Translation: I'm happy that I ended up here out of all tribes. My allies are here, plus Chuck-sama, so there's no way this can end poorly! I hope.
Chuck brought Barry and Goro together, telling them that they should stick together since Kyary and Leifang flipped to Luka.
|“||Chuck and I had an agreement to take out the vocaloids, but it looks like we both failed at that. Apparently Kyary and Leifang are in it with Luka, so that doesn't give me a good first impression. We might want to oust them soon.||”|
The three women agreed to have each other's backs, and considered targeting Chuck first. However, Kyary was convinced she could still work with Chuck.
|“||I don't think this switch could have gone better. Kyary and Leifang are with me. They saved my butt last Tribal, so I trust them to look out for me. I would like to do something about Chuck soon, but maybe we could use him.||”|
Kyary told Chuck that she would be willing to work with him, and that Goro gave her a bad vibe. Chuck agreed to keep an open mind, but said they should wait to see who to target.
|“||Suddenly Kyary wants to work with me again. Wow, that would have been nice last vote. Better late than never, I suppose. She wants to take out Goro, but I think I can use him. I still want Luka, but let's see what happens.||”|
On Nanliao, IA and Lily reunited. IA explained that Luka and MAYU were her closest allies, but Lily insisted that working with Miku was a bad idea and they should change long-term goals.
|“||I'm happy to be reunited with Lily, but she says that Miku was playing a little hard on her tribe. That doesn't surprise me. Right now I want to look after Lily and the people on my tribe, so I'll worry about Miku and Luka later.||”|
Bruce and Valjean were quick to agree to stick together, but they feared the duo of IA and Lily.
|“||I survived vocaloid Hell to walk right into another vocaloid Hell. We need to do something about these girls, I swear. I think Valjean and Ron might be my keys to do so.||”|
Kano and Ron bonded over their love for hard work, but Bruce soon joined them and offered a foursome alliance with Valjean. They agreed that IA and Lily should be picked off.
|“||We were blessed with majority here, four guys against two vocaloids. This could honestly be a nice change of pace. Right now it's the vocaloids versus the world, and the world is winning. I'm sure it's the same on every tribe.||”|
Lily started talking around, trying to ensure that she would be in the majority. She also tried to establish a relationship with Ron.
|“||So far so good. I just need to keep lying and lying and soon I'll be on top. There's a new face of this season, and her name is Lily!||”|
On Zhongliao, Bass and Ramsay agreed to stick together.
|“||We're in trouble here if Miku decides to flip, since I'm damn sure MAYU, Mileena, and Reptile would take her. How am I sure? Because we sure as Hell won't.||”|
Miku was approached by MAYU and Mileena, who explained that there was an anti-vocaloid alliance all around the island. To cover their backs, they decided to stay together.
|“||I didn't want to be branded as a "vocaloid" this season, but it seems like we're in the cross hairs here and need to protect ourselves. Miku, Mileena, and myself are three. Heh, all our names start with M. Anyway, we can probably flip Reptile and we'll be good. I'd like to see Bass and Ramsay go. They're pretty big threats.||”|
Miku spoke to Reptile, asking if he would be willing to vote against Bass and Ramsay. Without hesitation, he agreed to it.
|“||Do the girls scare me? Ha ha, no. Even if they're aligned now, I'm smart enough to know it won't last. Once we hit the later parts of the game, they'll be at each other's throats. That's how it always works out here. I don't know much about Bass and Ramsay, but I know they're both really strong players who could probably win. So I have no issue taking them out.||”|
Reptile and Mileena met up to rebuild their bonds that were broken in Earthrealm. Reptile told Mileena that he would like to work with her, which Mileena gave consent to.
|“||Reptile completely stabbed me in the back last time. It makes it hard to trust him again, admittedly, but right now I have no choice... Our alliance needs his vote, and there is no chance I'll be working with fatso and British chef-boy. Let's see how this turns out...||”|
The three tribes convened for their next Immunity challenge. Luke took the necklaces back from Kyary and Ramsay, putting them away and bringing back out the two-piece Immunity Idol. The challenge then began.
Nanliao took an early lead, with Gongguan right behind them. Bruce worked fast with bringing up the crates. Gongguan kept ahead of Zhongliao with Chuck and Goro working fast, but Bass struggled to bring the crates up. Nanliao eventually got their crates and returned to shore, with Gongguan right behind them. When Bass took too long, Reptile jumped in to take his place, speeding up Zhongliao's performance. Gongguan managed to finish the staircase before Nanliao, allowing Luka to take on the puzzle. Nanliao struggled to build the staircase, allowing Zhongliao to catch up. Before the other two could finish building, Luka solved the puzzle and ran for the tower, winning Immunity for Gongguan.
Competing for second, Nanliao finished the staircase before Zhongliao, allowing IA to try the puzzle. Before Zhongliao could finish, IA solved the puzzle and ran for the tower, winning Immunity for Nanliao.
Luke presented Gongguan and Nanliao with the pieces of Immunity. He reminded Zhongliao of their date with him at Tribal Council, as everyone returned to camp.
|“||This is not the best scenario. We need to somehow work around Miku's Magic Wand and somehow blindside either her or one of her friends. I think Bass and I will be in the hot seats tonight.||”|
After losing the challenge, Ramsay went to Bass to figure out a strategy. Bass suggested pretending to vote Miku, then to vote either MAYU or Mileena instead.
|“||So we lost. How tragic, but now it's our turn to strike! In order to get Miku to flush her Wand, we're going to have to vote out Mileena or MAYU. Which is more threatening; the three-timer or the winner?||”|
Bass spoke with Reptile to tell him about the plan. Reptile agreed with it, but was uncertain.
|“||Big revelation here! Miku has a Magic Wand! I wonder why she didn't tell me this. Maybe she's not as interested in working together as I thought she was. Now I have to reconsider everything.||”|
MAYU, Miku, and Mileena privately decided on voting Ramsay, deeming him the bigger threat.
|“||There's no questioning that Ramsay is a bigger threat than Bass. I would like to see either of them go, but Ramsay's our best bet so far. He could easily win this, we all know it.||”|
Mileena met with Reptile to tell him the plan, which Reptile also considered.
|“||If Reptile doesn't want to vote with Miku and MAYU, he'll want to vote with me... I have a feeling that it will be me or Miku with our name written down tonight. If Reptile is loyal, we shouldn't have any problems. This, of course, means we're going to have problems.||”|
At Tribal Council, Bass and Ramsay played it up that they were voting Miku. It became evident that Reptile would be the swing vote to either tie the votes or send Miku home. Before voting began, Ramsay revealed his Holy Grail, granting him Immunity until the merge. Miku then whispered "Plan B" to MAYU, Mileena, and Reptile. Bass' nervousness increased, knowing that he might be "Plan B."
Once the votes were read, Bass and Ramsay stuck to voting Mileena. However, Reptile sided with the girls and Bass was voted out. After Bass' torch was snuffed, Luke commented that the game just kept getting more intense. The five grabbed their torches and returned to camp.
| Tribal Council 6:|
Bass (4 votes)
MAYU, Miku, Mileena, & Reptile
Mileena (2 votes)
Bass & Gordon
|“||Whoa, tough break for me! Guess I wasn't on the right side of the numbers at that tribe switch! Oh well, Miku and Ramsay are killing it and I wish them the best of luck. I also wish good luck to my girl Leifang, and everyone else! I couldn't pull off the win, but one of you can!||”|
Still in the RunningEdit
