WE ARE LOCKED!

Participation in the First Steemit Sole Survivor Contest is now LOCKED! If you made a valid entry in the comment section of the original post before the deadline, you are IN!

If you missed out or are just finding us now, don't worry, you can still participate in the separate WEEKLY STEEMIT SURVIVOR CONTEST if you get your guesses in by 7am EST on Wednesday September 26th.

Below is the final list of the 23 participating Steemians along with their choice for who will be the Sole Survivor at the end of Season 37, season themed David vs. Goliath. The season premier, set in Mamanuca Islands‎, Fiji, will air on the 26th of September on CBS.

Worth Playing For? (The Prizes)

  • WINNER: 20 STEEM to the Steemian who correctly guesses the winner of Survivor 37: David vs. Goliath.
  • FIRST RUNNER UP: At least one Steem Basic Income (SBI) share provided by contest sponsor @freedomshift through his #ccc initiative if your Survivor finishes the season in second place. See below for more info on the #ccc initiative.
  • BOOBY PRIZE: @rentmoney had a great idea of rewarding the first loser, so has kindly added a booby prize. If your chosen survivor has the unfortunate distinction of being the FIRST to be voted out on the first episode, @rentmoney will give you a starter @dustsweeper account! There will be a maximum of 5 @dustsweeper starter accounts provided - if more than 5 qualify, @rentmoney will use a random generator to pick who gets the accounts. I will announce the "winner" of the Booby Prize in the comments section of this post later this week, after we know who is booted off the island first.
  • PLUS - A BONUS GAME HAS BEEN UNLOCKED: Because the contest was successful in attracting 20 participants, contest sponsor @o07 will award one lucky winner an ounce of silver including shipping costs! THIS BONUS GAME IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. See below for details.

Steemit Sole Survivor Final Contest Rules

  • If more than one Steemian correctly picks the Sole Survivor, the 20 Steem prize will be split evenly between those with the winning pick, with the SBI share(s) going to the first runner up.
  • If no Steemian guesses correctly, prizes will be as follows: 15 STEEM for the Steemian whose contestant remains in the game the longest, 5 STEEM for the Steemian that stays in second longest and the SBI share(s) will given to the Steemian whose pick lasts third longest.
  • Survivor seasons can be unpredictable - I'll do my best to fairly distribute the prizes in case of any ties or major twists!

Bonus Game Unlocked!

Since we have attracted 20 participants, a bonus game has been unlocked by contest sponsor @o07. This bonus game is in addition to the main contest and is happening right now and the prize is one ounce of silver!

As outlined in my previous post here's how it works: using a randomized team maker I have paired each of the first 20 Steemians who confirmed contest participation (AND successfully made a guess in the comment section of my previous post before the contest deadline) with each of this season's 20 Survivor contestants.

Because some of those who expressed interest in playing didn't make a guess by the deadline, they have been replaced with the Steemians who joined the contest more recently. I have added the following players based on the order in which they joined the contest: @norihany, @travoved, @hiddendragon, @chamudiliyanage, and @stever82.

Congratulations, I've slotted you in - you are now in the running for @o07's Ounce of Silver Bonus Game!

If your assigned contestant wins this Survivor season, @o07 will ship you an ounce of silver and will even cover shipping costs!

Here are the pairings of the 20 Steemians and 20 Survivors:

  • @freedomshift has kindly offered to contribute at least 1 SBI share towards the Steemit Sole Survivor Contest. He does this all the time through #ccc, please go check him out and consider joining the #ccc initiative! Thank you @freedomshift!
  • @rentmoney had the great idea to offer @dustsweeper accounts as booby prizes for the first loser. @rentmoney is super active on Steemit and always coming up with creative new ways to engage with the community. Check him out and consider participating in his contests and games!

Previously on Survivor

@suitcasemama and I are huge (and extremely nerdy) fans of the American reality show called Survivor. You know the one - where you have to survive on a deserted island, play silly challenges, and vote people off the island. I put out a post over a month ago to gauge interest in a Steemit Survivor Contest. Since then I've been saving up Steem to be able to award a large 20 Steem Prize. Good news, I've reached my goal and now have the 20 Steem prize just waiting to award to the winning Steemian!

The Tribe Has Spoken

I've started the Weekly Survivor Contest too, where you vote on who you think will be voted off next. Check it out!

I may run a mid-season contest as well, depending on interest.

What's Next?

No more action from participants is required. Just sit back and enjoy the season of Survivor and root for your pick!

The first episode Survivor: David vs. Goliath, set in Mamanuca Islands‎, Fiji, will air on the 26th of September on CBS.

Once the season ends (probably around the 19th of December, 2018) I'll make a Winner Announcement Post.

Good luck to all and I hope you enjoy the contest!

My pick Gabby Pascuzzi only cried a little this week!! But she got herself voted out!

We lost a lot of good Steemians this week! @hiddendragon, @happyme, @norihany, and @toddcurry - because you all picked Alec or Carl to win this season of Survivor, I'm afraid you join @steven-patrick, @chamudiliyanage, @suitcasemama, @gabrielatravels, and @the-witty-waiter who are out of the running for the 20 Steem Grand Prize.

My pick Gabby Pascuzzi cried yet again this week!! But she also seems to be starting to make some big moves and if the previews for next week are to be believed, she might be coming after her #1 ally Christian! That would be nuts!!

Feeling confident... but there's still some dark horses in the running...

Episode NINE Update

My pick Gabby Pascuzzi has successfully made it through ANOTHER episode without crying, but the previews for next week make it clear that the waterworks will be turning back on!!

No one was knocked out this week for the Grand Prize - the following are still in the running for the 20 Steem + SBI share prize: @doctorcrypto @dfinney @rentmoney @steven-patrick @toddcurry @mimismartypants @fronttowardenemy @gabrielatravels @happyme @aussieninja @pbock @norihany @travoved @hiddendragon @chamudiliyanage @stever82 @torrey.blog @freedomshift @silvertogold.

Great job everyone!

It looks like Gabby Pascuzzi, my pick, is teased to make an alliance next week, so I have a feeling she'll be in for a while, but still don't think she'll bring home the prize!

Episode Four Update

@the-witty-waiter and @mimismartypants are out of the running for @o07's Ounce of Silver Bonus Prize having been assigned Bi Nguyen and Natalia Azoqa respectively. They join @toddcurry, @pbock, and @travoved on the no-silver-for-you bench. Everyone else according to the list above is still in it!

Pour some out for @the-witty-waiter and @mimismartypants!

On the other hand - @rentmoney's Booby Prize was claimed by the very same @the-witty-waiter!

The following are still in the running for the 20 Steem + SBI share grand prize: @doctorcrypto @dfinney @rentmoney @steven-patrick @toddcurry @mimismartypants @fronttowardenemy @gabrielatravels @happyme @aussieninja @pbock @norihany @travoved @hiddendragon @chamudiliyanage @stever82 @torrey.blog @freedomshift @silvertogold.

Great job everyone!

Gabby Pascuzzi, my pick, seems to break down every episode - if she doesn't start a "Survivor made me stronger" narrative soon, there's no way she's winnin' this thing!

Pwaa pwaaaa!! 😢 Oh well!! At least I'm still in the running for the grand prize!!

Also, Gabby is behaving like such a girl!! Pffffttt!!

Posted using Partiko Android

Gabby's driving me insane - she has zero chances of winning unless she quickly toughens up to start to build a "Survivor has changed me" argument in the end. So far, it looks like the game is just breaking her!

Your overall pick of Nick will go far I think! Especially if he survives until the merge and is reunited with Christian!

You're welcome to join the Weekly Contest as well! :)

I think i strategically chose nick based on stability and likebility. Being a chic myself i am allowed to say this, but most if the time they never hack it! Lets be honest!!

Posted using Partiko Android

I don't know, after 36 seasons, women have won 16 times, men 20 times...that's pretty close ;)

Episode Three Update

Since @travoved was assigned Jeremy Crawford he joins @toddcurry and @pbock on being out of the running for @o07's Ounce of Silver Bonus Prize.

Pour some out for @travoved

Again @rentmoney's Booby Prize has still yet to be won!!

That's amazing actually!! It means everyone's (@doctorcrypto @dfinney @the-witty-waiter @rentmoney @suitcasemama @steven-patrick @toddcurry @mimismartypants @fronttowardenemy @gabrielatravels @happyme @aussieninja @pbock @norihany @travoved @hiddendragon @chamudiliyanage @stever82 @torrey.blog @freedomshift @silvertogold) picks are all still in the running for the 20 Steem + SBI share grand prize!

Great job everyone!

Gabby Pascuzzi, my pick, seems to have a bit of a target on her back now, so it's not looking good for my silver prospects!!

Yuhh it seems to me that I made wrong choice. I wish good luck to all participants!

Posted using Partiko Android

Nope, you're not out of it yet! You're only out of @o07's Ounce of Silver bonus game! Your pick for the main 20 SBD contest is Davie Rickenbacker, who is still in it and has an immunity idol, so you're still in good shape!

Yup... Thank you for detail explaining!

Episode Two Update

Since @pbock was assigned Jessica Peet he joins @toddcurry on being out of the running for @o07's Ounce of Silver Bonus Prize. Pour some out for @pbock!

On the other hand, @rentmoney's Booby Prize has still yet to be won, which means everyone's (@doctorcrypto @dfinney @the-witty-waiter @rentmoney @suitcasemama @steven-patrick @toddcurry @mimismartypants @fronttowardenemy @gabrielatravels @happyme @aussieninja @pbock @norihany @travoved @hiddendragon @chamudiliyanage @stever82 @torrey.blog @freedomshift @silvertogold) picks are all still in the running for the 20 Steem + SBI share grand prize! Great job everyone!

Anyone else regretting their pick to win? After watching my pick Gabby Pascuzzi for two episodes, I reeeeaaaalllly doubt she'll win the whole thing!

This game becomes more and more interesting with each new episode!

Posted using Partiko Android

Yep! If this episode was any indication, this season is going to be good!

I'm feeling good with my davids.
If i'm not mistaken, my boy Davie Rickenbocker found an idol tonight.

I'd feel good with your choices too. Davie did find an idol, plus - he's likable! The only thing that could bite him is that he's now in the smaller alliance with Bi and Carl. He's gonna have to get out of that quickly.

Nick, your Silver Bonus Round pick, dug himself out of a hole this episode as well and now seems pretty tight with Christian. I think he'll be safe for a while at least!

Nick is not the most likable person. He just needs to form an alliance with Davie!

Loving the contest man!

Well, I have some good news aaaand some bad news.

Bad news: no one qualified for @rentmoney's booby prize.

Good news: that's because all of you all are Survivor geniuses! No one's pick to win was voted out on week one! Nice job everyone!

Actually no one was voted out at all - we had a medevac of Pat Cusack instead.

Unfortunately that means our own @toddcurry is out of @o07's Ounce of Silver Bonus Game. Sad face :(

But!

Everyone else seems to have picked wisely (or at least didn't make the worst possible pick) so @doctorcrypto @dfinney @the-witty-waiter @rentmoney @suitcasemama @steven-patrick @toddcurry @mimismartypants @fronttowardenemy @gabrielatravels @happyme @aussieninja @pbock @norihany @travoved @hiddendragon @chamudiliyanage @stever82 @torrey.blog @freedomshift are all still in the running for the 20 Steem + SBI share grand prize!

Most of you know about the Weekly Contest as well - I just posted a winner announcement (@steven-patrick correctly guessed Pat Cusack would go first) which also opens next week's contest. You're very welcome to participate!

And no silver for me.

Good luck, all! We all have ‘skin in the game’ now.

Posted using Partiko iOS

That's right, good luck to all! A lot of solid picks - I wouldn't be surprised if one of our picks wins!

Ouch! Gabby’s on the chopping block.

Posted using Partiko iOS

I agree dude - and she was my pick to win the whole thing! Not looking good!

You should get in on the Weekly Contest too @torrey.blog!

Done! Thanks for the tip.

Aha! Are you gonna teach us how to do fishing with a pointy stick? Ha!

No, but maybe I'll build a fire just using flint ;)

Let the games begin and "may the odds be ever in your favor"

Yes! Here we go!!!!!
