Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
With the merge coming up, the one person who was guaranteed a safe ride to the end, wasn't in the endgame plans for Alleio. And G'riara heads out.
G'rilara is someone who I'm glad worked better in execution than I thought she would in concept. I had my plans for her, but she was just such a unique character that I knew she'd have a bit of a rough ride in the game, especially after she was split up from Arnold, who was really the only person who really stuck with her. And at this point, Alleio would be the one person who would want her out.
For Story purposes, I really didn't have a role for G'rilara after the merge, and I couldn't realistically eliminate her in the time I could. And She would not fit in the endgame at all, so right here was the best spot I could place her in. I'm sorry to those who enjoyed her, I did too, but I couldn't take her any farther :(
This was the perfect time to eliminate her.
Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Wtf? :(
Yeah, it was safe to say that G'rilara is a premerge boot. You could only do so much with a living paperweight.
I was shocked, just kidding, I wasn't, it was pretty obvious she would be leaving so, lol at grilara flying
Well, Gril can now move on to her day job: being a paperweight.
G lasted WAY longer than she should have, but I have to admit, that's quite the accomplishment.
Also, I love Damon's line when he's talking about Izy XD
Oh Jim. Now everyone's going to think you're on Alleio's side. Why oh why didn't you talk to Orwell and Grilara (at least) about this?
stupid Tyler Perry idol? aka special idol aka episode name?
Goodbye, lil' dragon. You were... an interesting bit of scenery while you lasted. A bit sad, but better than most of the alternatives.
Also, is it just me, or are the females getting wiped out awfully quickly this season? A certain line from Montana feels appropriate here.
Wait, wasn't Iyzebel's trio splitting the votes among them, just to cover more bases in case of an Idol? Why then did both Damon and Tapioca vote for someone they knew would be protected?
Yeah....the more I thought about it, the more Grilara seemed like the most likely candidate, and this is the first time since Rudy left that Gri felt vulnerable at all. That being said though, I was still pretty torn on it being between her and Tapioca, until Jim's speech at the voting booth anyways. Welp, pretty much like Fennecs said. Grilara was....interesting, but I won't miss her as much as...well, pretty much anyone else on this tribe. Still kind of confused why SWSU decided to keep her this long though. It feels like the only purpose her AND Arnold held in this entire game was to get Hash that idol that he should be getting post-merge.
Anywho, let the merged games begin~
eh, I had high hopes for her, but after reading your reasoning, I understand why she left pre-merge.
omg not the TP idol!! I'm hoping that it's an idol with new rules, but if it's the TP idol I'm gonna be pretty pissed.
Huh. I'd have expected Jeff to keep her around for windy nights when the votes were threatening to blow away. Now then, there's not many people I hate remaining, so let's just go with my old standbys: Frost and Izyebel. Preferably Frost.
I don't watch actual survivor, so I had to look up what this "TP" idol people are talking about.....and doesn't it have the same abilities as the one Sky had in the very first season? AND he used it in the final four?
Edit: PLEASE do sonofhades's idea with Grilara SWSU XD
@anime9001: Yes it does. And it's how the idol worked in seasons 12 and 13 of the real show too.
Huh. I sort of had a feeling yesterday that given G'rilara's UTR edit that she could get a surprise boot.
I really enjoyed her presence, and even though there was a slight feeling that perhaps she COULD work in a merge situation, there was always a chance she wouldn't.
G'rilara was fun while she lasted, and it leaves Hash and Orwell as the last two Nonaymers left. Can they make it work?
And grilarr is gone I didn't really like her so I'm glad she's gone. Come on Jim try and win one
Thank god the illustrious trio of Tapioca, Iyzebel and Damon is safe, I was terrified that one of them would be robbed right before the merge ;_;
Grilara was a pretty fun UTR character but I guess this was a good place to eliminate her.
Probably the best boot possible under these circumstances. There were slight villain vibes from G'rillara when she saw Arnold as a potential follower but she soon turned into a Cherman with much less impact. I think that she couldn't have competed with the background stories of the remaining contestants. So... thanks for being there but I already have my eyes back on the others
Jim sure chose a bad time to celebrate. While it's nice to know that the merge will happen soon, his victory dance won't improve his popularity among the Purada survivors. Let's see how well he and Alleio will do... Also predicting now that the castaway mentioned in the preview will be Roth
The merge ought to be fun.....
