Welcome to the Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest.
No Upvote, No Resteem, or No Follow Required!

This post will be both a Winner Announcement post and an invitation to participate in the next round of the Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest which starts NOW!!


Episode three of Survivor: David Vs. Goliath saw the David Tribe finally win an Immunity/Reward Challenge (on some great puzzle work by the David Tribes's biggest nerds, Christian and Gabby) sending the Goliath Tribe to their first tribal council.

Although there was talk about sending Natalie home, the tribe decided in a unanimous vote to send Jeremy Crawford home.

Butting heads with Natalie did not work out for him - so long Jeremy!

Also - it was revealed in the preview for next week's episode that they're going to shake up the tribes, so it's about to get interesting!


Since no one guessed Jeremy would leave this week, there's still no SBD winner for the Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest and no one won the two SBI shares courtesy of contest sponsor @freedomshift!

Don't fret Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest participants @celinavisaez, @rentmoney, @the-witty-waiter, @trisquelwhare, @annycor, @gabrielatravels, @suitcasemama, @fronttowardenemy, @doctorcrypto, @happyme, @steven-patrick, @dfinney, @bidesign,, @lilkeszi, @laxmanmah and @pbock!

That just means the prize pool for next week's contest has just expanded!

Here's the current prize pool:

  1. The SBD raised by two weeks ago's post was 0.235 SBD.
  2. PLUS the SBD raised by last week's post was 0.727 SBD
  3. PLUS: I made this comment on @whatageek's page and he kindly upvoted it, which paid out 0.588 SBD
  4. PLUS whatever this post makes in SBD
  5. AND least 2 SBI shares from @freedomshift

I invite you all to guess again in the comment section below!

I'm continually looking for ways to increase the prize pool for this contest. If anyone has any ideas as the week goes on, please let me know - I would love to give more to the winners!

@steven-patrick, who correctly guessed that Pat Cusack would be the first to go on Episode One, remains the only Steemit participant to make a correct guess. Will anyone guess correctly next week and take the ever expanding prize pool? Stay tuned to find out!

Also - an update on the parallel First Steemit Sole Survivor Contest with a 20 STEEM Prize. I'm sorry to announce that because @travoved was assigned Jeremy Crawford he joins @toddcurry and @pbock on being out of the running for @o07's Ounce of Silver Bonus Prize.

And @rentmoney's Booby Prize has still yet to be won! That means that our guesses on who will win the season have been very strong so far!


This post also announces the next round for next week's Survivor episode. If you're new, the object of the weekly contest is very simple: you win if you guess who will be voted off the island next!



  1. Guess who will be voted out next on the coming episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath from the list of the 17 remaining contestants and leave your guess in the comments section of this post below by 8am EST on Wednesday October 17th.
  2. There is no #2, that's it! If you guess correctly, you win!
  3. Trash talking other Steemian's choices highly encouraged!


The winner will receive (in order of importance):

  • Bragging rights immortalized forever on the blockchains
  • PLUS - the total amount of Steem (or SBD) generated from all contest posts until someone wins.
  • AND - at least one Steem Basic Income (SBI) share provided by contest sponsor @freedomshift through his #ccc initiative (see below for more info on #ccc).
  • Additional prizes may be added if we pick up sponsorships along the way.


Set in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, the next episode of Survivor David vs. Goliath will air 8pm on Wednesday, October 17th. The deadline for this week's contest is:

8am EST on Wednesday October 17th.

At that point I will lock your choices. A winner announcement post will follow.


The David and Goliath tribes will be shuffled next week, so the original groups are irrelevant. The list of remaining contestants are:

Former Davids: Elizabeth Olson, Carl Boudreaux, Nick Wilson, Davie Rickenbacker, Bi Nguyen, Lyrsa Torres, Gabby Pascuzzi, Christian Hubicki.

Former Goliaths: Alec Merlino, Alison Raybould, John Hennigan, Dan Rengering, Mike White, Natalie Cole, Kara Kay, Natalia Azoqa, Angelina Keeley


  • If more than one Survivor contestant is voted off on this episode, that means you have more than one chance to win!
  • If it's a medical evacuation like we saw in the first episode, I will treat it as if the person has been voted off.
  • If more than one Steemian guesses correctly, the Steem Prize will be evenly split, but the @freedomshift #ccc SBI share(s) will go to the first one to correctly guess which contestant is voted off in the coming episode.
  • In the case NO ONE correctly guesses this week, the Steem earned in this post will be saved up and added to the pool for the next Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest.

I think next to go is Elizabeth, Gabby will rally the troops!

Haha, I love it, the contest's first meme! Your vote for cowgirl Elizabeth is noted!

Although I love her....I'm going to have to say Gabby is out next week. I don't think the davids are going to win two challenges in a row.

Gabby, got it! She was my pre-season pick to win, but it's not looking good, plus she comes across as a bit frail. She'd have to toughen up, big time to spin a "survivor made me stronger" narrative at the end...

This contest is listed in the Current Open #ccc sponsored Contests as confirmation of my continued co-sponsorship of this contest.

Since no one won the SBI share again this week, would you again consider saving up the shares that haven't been won to give 3 shares for next week?

@freedomshift (56) · 9 minutes ago
Thank you for the update!

Carrying it over to the third week increases the reward but the chances of winning also increased.

I would only carry this 2 SBI further for #ccc entry winners.
IF winner only guessed the correct person, it'll be just 1 SBI from me.

But, if there were at least 3 valid #ccc entries with a write up relating to the guess, an analysis whether it's rational or not, I'll reward the additional, carried over 2 SBI totaling to 3 SBI for the winning #ccc post.

The goliaths are smart and realized Natalie is socially not a threat. I’m betting Gabby Pascuzzi will go home next week. She drew too much attention by orchestrating the blind side of Jessica Peet. Who knows, maybe the David tribe’s losing streak is over?

Your vote for Gabby is noted! I'm leaning Gabby too, she's building a reputation as a schemer, that could come back to bite her!

If they do a tribe swap, it could really mix things up. I could easily see Natalie going home because it takes her a long time to mesh with the new tribe.

Hi! The preview made it look like they're definitely tribe swapping. Shall I switch your vote from Gabby to Natalie? :)

Nope, I’ll stick to my first pick. Anything could happen!

Posted using Partiko iOS

Okay, your vote for Gabby is noted!

I'm going to guess Angelina Keeley again. She's shady

Okay, your guess for Angelina is noted! I think she's playing well so far, pretty much responsible for getting Jeremy out, but that could put a target on her back!

With the buffs getting dropped it's anyone's game. My guess is for Dan Rengering.

I'm guessing that his "showmance" will make people paranoid, and talk of his idol will make people go for a blindside. He's also a physical threat. He does have a lot of allies though, so I think my guess is unlikely, but it's as good a guess as any.

One vote for Dan, got it! I like the logic! So hard to tell with the shake up, but I like your reasoning.

I like your thinking. Dan seems like a possibility.

Hi Joe .. check here 😉

Hey!! AWESOME!! Thanks so much! It's a bit hectic with the new arrival this month, but will try my best to take advantage of the support!

I'm not super familiar with @minnowbuilder, do I need to do anything or all set?

Thanks again @f3nix!!!

Joe I would have loved to help you more, you're an awesome person with a great family, I saw your pics and your lovely newborn! The fact is that I saw that I gave priority to those with zero help.. about the 10 shares I donnow so much too, but I'll leave a message to @thedarkhorse. I purpose you to join the Bananafish discord and be part of our group of friends: I would be really happy to stay in touch and surely I'll find a way to increase my sustain or that from the Bananafish community. Therefore we love positive people like you and your family! All the best 😁

Thanks man, I appreciate the kind words! I'm pretty dumb with Discord, but should be able to click a link ;) I'd be very happy to join the group!

You are all set for your shares of @minnowbuilder. Will keep it in place for at least 30 days to help give you a boost.

It will provide a upvote once per day for you if you post.

Great, thanks so much @thedarkhorse, I really appreciate the support!

I am going to guess Natalia Azoqa but is just a guess


freedomshift transfer 2 STEEM to steembasicincome @stever82

Thank you again.

Wow cool haha maybe I should try and watch the show but you toss a dart and you hit the right target sometimes

I went a little crazy powering up my SBD the last few days, so will be a bit delayed getting you your prize, but @freedomshift has already transferred you the 2 SBI shares. Check the new post for your winner announcement!

Oh okay that is fine thanks again

Okay, I just transferred the 2 SBD prize. Congrats!!!

That's actually my guess too. I think if she and Natalie end up on the same tribe, they'll go at each other and Natalia will lose. We'll see!

Hola @eoj me mantengo con Nick Wilson, un abrazo.

okay, Sr. Wilson, noted! Gracias @celinavisaez por participar!

Carl Boudreaux is on his way out.

The oracle of Steemit Survivor has spoken! Carl is as good as gone! :)

Hmmm... I'm going to go with Alec. Completely random but who knows XD

Posted using Partiko Android

Random guess noted, thanks @pbock! It's going to shuffle big time next week, so it's really going to be interesting!

So there is still no boobie prize winner ......

  • Nick Wilson

Nope, not yet! Our guesses have been too good so far!!

And your vote for Nick Wilson is noted!

This is getting quite exciting even NOT watching the series! I have no idea what a tribal council is or any of what goes on there on the island. However, using a process of elimination, if I stick with my original vote, I either win the booby prize or eventually get it correct. I'll stay with Lyrsa Torres.

Glad you're enjoying it @happyme, me too! I of course want someone to win soon, but it is kinda fun watching the prize pot grow! Your guess of Lyrsa is noted!

Okay - my guess this week: Natalia Azoqa. It only works if Natalie and her end up on the same tribe after the swap. Since she was so adamant on this week's episode about getting Natalie out, I think she'll try again. If she does, I predict it will backfire as the new tribe realizes she's more of a threat than Natalie.

In Natalia vs. Natalie, I think Natalia Azoqa loses!

Hi @eoj, I'm @checky ! While checking the mentions made in this post I noticed that @suticasemama doesn't exist on Steem. Did you mean to write @suitcasemama ?

If you found this comment useful, consider upvoting it to help keep this bot running. You can see a list of all available commands by replying with !help.

Whew, thank you @checky! That would have gotten me into big trouble at home! Thank you for being so subtle, I don't think @suticasemama even noticed!!!

This week's vote goes to BI. After suffering from a torn ligament on her knees, which makes her weak at challenges, she is a great target to be voted out next.

Great guess and do you want to get together to watch next week's episode? ;)

I'm thinking about Elizabeth Olson? I don't know. I really like her but maybe she will bring me the jackpot haha

Okay, you got it! Elizabeth it is! We'll see in a few days if you're right! :)

@o07, @suitcasemama,, @doctorcrypto, @the-witty-waiter, @fronttowardenemy, @stever82, @celinavisaez, @steven-patrick, @pbock, @rentmoney, @happyme, @gabrielatravels - your entries are LOCKED for this week's contest.

13 participants this week, thanks to all for playing! I hope one of you win the jackpot this week!!!

I'm getting all nervous and excited. Who will it be???
