Welcome to the Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest!

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 two of Survivor: David Vs. Goliath didn't disappoint, giving us the first blindside of the season! The David Tribe again lost the Immunity/Reward Challenge and was the first tribe to go to tribal council.

In a vote no one saw coming, Jessica Peet was totally blindsided, making her the second to leave the game and the first to be voted off. Lyrsa Torres, who was the guess of many contest participants, dodged a huge bullet, receiving four votes.

So long Jessica!

Since no one guessed Jessica would leave this week, there's no SBD winner for the Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest and no one won the SBI share 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, and @pbock! I invite you to guess again in the comment section below -the SBD raised by last week's post (it's looking to be about .31 SBD) will be added to the prize for next week!

Also, I'm continually looking for ways to increase the prize pool for this contest and this week had a bit of success. I made this comment on @whatageek's page and he kindly upvoted it, which should give about .70 SBD additional upon payout for next week's prize pool! 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, was unable to repeat victory! In the words of the current American President: "sad"!

Who will guess correctly next week? Will @steven-patrick reclaim his crown or will someone dethrone him? Stay tuned to find out!

Also - there is an update on the parallel The First Steemit Sole Survivor Contest with a 20 STEEM prize. @pbock was assigned Jessica Peet so he joins @toddcurry 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!


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 18 remaining contestants and leave your guess in the comments section of this post below by 8am EST on Wednesday October 10th.
  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 this post
  • AND - 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 10th. The deadline for this week's contest is:

8am EST on Wednesday October 10th.

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


Pick the contestant you think will be voted out first from the following two tribes:

David Tribe

Goliath Tribe

  • 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 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.

Please check out the other #ccc posts and especially the other #ccc sponsored contests.

Awesome, thanks so much for your continuous support and your double prize this week!

I am going to vote Natalie Cole until she is gone.
There is a difference between being strong and being bull headed.

There has to got to be a puzzle/mind challenge coming soon.

Natalie, got it! She was my pick for this week's episode, but the Davids blew it. I was chatting with @suitcasemama - she's just got zero self awareness. I know there's probably those who will want to keep her around, but she seems so hard to live with that I'd boot her just to get some peace and better vibes around camp.

Lyrsa Torres has to go sometime, so I'll stick with her.
Wouldn't that be something if she's the sole survivor!

I'm thinking she's got too many allies to be voted out soon. I was thinking that she'd go off the handle when she found out her name was being brought up, but she kept it cool. If she remains cool-headed, I'm thinking she'll stay until the merge. Who knows.

Thanks for that information. I don't watch any TV at all, so have no idea who to choose.

Thanks @happyme, your vote for Lyrsa is noted!

Creo que le toca a la tribu Goliath, el proximo en irse sera, Mike White, un abrazo @eoj.

Okay, Mike White, confirmado! Vamos a ver! :)

I upvoted this post at 50% to welcome you back as a new member of #ccc.

Gracias @fredomshift, un saludo cordial y la bienvenida a @eoj, un abrazo.
Estoy teniendo problemas para comentar, no se comprar SP, mis recursos estan muy bajos, quiero comprar SP, y no lo se hacer, si me pueden ayudar explicandome, ¿que hago? ya encendi el SP con 4 STEEM, pero se agota muy rapido.


I don't quite understand your question. Could you ask me on my post so that I may help you more?

I'm gonna keep with mike white.

Okay, you vote for Mike is noted! Sorry that you're out of the running for o07's silver! :(

Yeah... me so sad 😢

Alec Merlino is the correct guess for this week :)

Alec, noted! The defending champ has spoken! Heed his words!

I'm going to vote Carl Boudreaux. The David's will most likely lose till there's a merge. Luckily my player Bi is keeping a low profile for now

Carl, noted! Nice pick, he's now part of the minority group in the Davids and he was the one who tried to get Lyrsa out - she may come after him for revenge!

Goliath's Natalie Cole will be next to go!

I hope so cough cough I mean, your guess is noted!

I don't think the Davids are going to win immunity so I'm picking from that tribe.

I'm going to throw out a wild guess and say that the tribe will catch wind of Davie's idol and blindside him. My vote is for Davie Rickenbacker.

Davie, noted. Solid guess. He, Carl, and Bi are on the outs now on Team David. Assuming the other three girls will want to keep Bi around, it's down to Carl and Davie, which is a shame, he seems to be a decent dude and is playing a relatively smart game...

I'm going for Carl this week. I think the Davids will lose, and because he was the one who floated Lyrsa's name this week, I think the majority will see him as a threat and vote him out.

I am going to go ahead and pick the same person as I did last week.

  • Nick Wilson

Did anyone win the @dustsweeper account(s) I had up for offer ?

Nope, not yet! Everyone's picks have been too good so far!

And your vote for Nick is noted!

Votes are LOCKED for this week's contest!

Good luck @doctorcrypto, @suitcasemama, @rentmoney, @happyme, @fronttowardenemy, @celinavisaez, @pbock, @steven-patrick, @the-witty-waiter!

With no one winning last week, we have a nice little prize pool this week, I hope at least one of you win!!

Enjoy the episode!!!
