Winner and Next Round Announcement - Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest Episode Four - No Upvote, No Resteem, No Follow Required!
Welcome to the Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest. No Upvote, No Resteem, No Follow Required!
This post will be both a Winner Announcement post (and YES we have a winner this week!) and an invitation to participate in the next round of the Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest which starts NOW!!
Another great episode this week! Episode four of Survivor: David Vs. Goliath reshuffled the tribes into three: purple, green, and orange or Jabeni, Tiva, Vuku. All tribes ended up with a majority of Goliaths and poor Carl (Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarl!) was sent to Exile Island - but don't feel too sorry for him, he found an Immunity Idol Nulifier while there.
In the end two Survivors went home: Bi Nguyen took herself out of the game due to injury and after Vuku was sent to Tribal Council Natalia Azoqa was betrayed by Alec, her former Goliath tribemate, who voted with the former Davids to completely blindside her. It looks like Cowgirl Elizabeth dodged a bullet this week.
But with Carl joining next week, the Davids will have the numbers in the Vuku tribe. Was Alec's move genius? Madness? We'll soon see!
So long Bi and fare thee well Natalia, the red X's found your faces!
But what kind of contest hosts claim their own prizes? Not these kinds!
Here's what you've won @stever82:
- The SBD raised by three weeks ago's post was 0.235 SBD.
- PLUS the SBD raised by two week ago's post was 0.727 SBD
- PLUS the SBD raised by last week's post was 0.391 SBD.
- PLUS: I made this comment on @whatageek's page and he kindly upvoted it, which paid out 0.588 SBD
- AND 2 SBI shares from @freedomshift
The SBD adds up to 1.94, but let's just round that up to 2 SBD even plus the 2 SBI shares from @freedomshift.
Congrats @stever82 on winning this 2 SBD and 2 SBI this week! You join @steven-patrick as the only two Steemians to win a weekly contest so far!!! Great job!
Don't worry Weekly Steemit Survivor Contest participants @celinavisaez, @rentmoney, @the-witty-waiter, @trisquelwhare, @annycor, @gabrielatravels, @suitcasemama, @fronttowardenemy, @doctorcrypto, @happyme, @steven-patrick, @dfinney, @bidesign, @torrey.blog, @lilkeszi, @laxmanmah, @stever82, @o07, and @pbock! There are still a bunch of Survivor episodes remaining!
I invite you all to guess again in the comment section below!
Also - an update on the parallel First Steemit Sole Survivor Contest with a 20 STEEM Prize. I'm sorry to announce that both @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.
But it wasn't all bad news for @the-witty-waiter who has won @rentmoney's Booby Prize for the distinction of having the Survivor he thought would win the whole season - Bi Nguyen - go home first! @the-witty-waiter, you're now the proud owner of a starter @dustsweeper account, courtesy of contest sponsor @rentmoney!
@suitcasemama joins @the-witty-waiter on being out of the running for the 20 Steem Grand Prize, as her pick, Natalia, was also sent home this episode. But I'm impressed that it took our group four weeks to have our picks start disappearing, great guesses everyone!
WEEKLY CONTEST NEW ROUND - STATUS: ON!
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!
THIS CONTEST IS ON - LET'S SEE YOUR GUESSES IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
- Guess who will be voted out next on the coming episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath from the list of the 15 remaining contestants and leave your guess in the comments section of this post below by 8am EST on Wednesday October 24th.
- There is no #2, that's it! If you guess correctly, you win!
- Strategizing and 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 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.
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 bigger prizes to the winners!
Set in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, the next episode of Survivor David vs. Goliath will air 8pm on Wednesday, October 24th. The deadline for this week's contest is:
8am EST on Wednesday October 24th.
At that point I will lock your choices. A winner announcement post will follow.
REMAINING CONTESTANTS LIST
The David and Goliath tribes are all shuffled now, so here is the new breakdown:
Jabeni Tribe (Purple) - Nick Wilson, Lyrsa Torres, Natalie Cole, Mike White, Angelina Keeley
Tiva Tribe (Green) - Christian Hubicki, Gabby Pascuzzi, John Hennigan, Alison Raybould, Dan Rengering,
Vuku Tribe (Orange) - Elizabeth Olson, Carl Boudreaux, Davie Rickenbacker, Alec Merlino, Kara Kay.
- 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 and fourth episodes, 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.
