Journal Entry 31, Day 22
So last night I had a dream that I was voted out... That was scary! You know you're obsessed when... anyways moving on!
Yesterday it was revealed that the merge is almost upon us. The Shaman's Rattle has given us two last parting gifts:
• First of all, one player was able to bid their iSurv1vor currency for an instant spot in the merge. The winner of this bidding process is Brittany (with a bid of 96 Bs) and she was allowed to grant one person immunity. She proceeded to give Audrey immunity for the round. This makes sense considering Audrey had given Brittany the hidden immunity idol to use for her protection at the previous tribal council. Therefore, Brittany already secured a spot at new merged tribe. Since she is already immune I am considering putting a target on her back so that she is the first person voted out when we merge. She might have been given a hidden immunity idol clue already so may have to coordinate a split vote to ensure her departure.
• Secondly, there will be a "redemption island" twist in play this season. Ky has been sent to the Shaman's Redemption where she will battle off against the next person eliminated. This will continue until the Shaman's last rattle is complete. I'm very glad that this started this round and not earlier because that could have been trouble for me! It will be very interesting to see how this twist plays out but for now I am not too worried about it.
In addition, we do not have an immunity challenge for this round. Apparently we are being sent straight off to tribal council with no chance to protect ourselves with a challenge. The two tribes have been combined into one for this round in order to have 1 massive tribal council. There will be 12 people voting at the tribal council; everyone minus Brittany. This is going to be veeeery intense! I"m excited to see how the tribe dynamics work now that we are all together. Will Corazon and Orgullo stay with their respective tribes? Will it be men vs. women? Or will pre-game alliances reign supreme? Find out next time on iSurv1vor Venezuela! Just kidding.
So right now I am pretty confident that I am totally safe. If I went home it would be a complete blindside. There is no way I wouldn't find out if my name was going around. I have connection with almost everyone so there is bound to be 1 person who would leak it to me. Additionally, Audrey is safe from elimination this week. Consequently, there are 10 people in danger of elimination this episode. I want Michelle to go because I think that she still has connections with Ky and thus it would be very smart to have them battle against each other with the Redemption twist. Plus I believe that Michelle will be an easy sell for our tribes to unify against a common enemy. At the moment I believe that she will be the one leaving this round. Things could change but that's the plan, man!
I am getting more and more wary of Audrey in this game. My initial feeling was to trust her but I am slowly starting to understand how dangerous she can be in this game. She has just as many connections with people in this game as I do and is a fierce competitor. She could definitely end up making a move to take me out later down the road. I need to be very cautious of her because she could blindside me in the future. I still plan to stick with her for now but I am going to continue to keep my eyes open for any shady activity.
Once the tribes were combined I decided that I should contact Gray to pick up where we left off. I totally ignored him before he used the Shaman Rattle to go to Corazon so I wanted to make sure that we were still on good terms. I pretended like I was totally shocked that he mutinied and that I thought we had a close bond together. He seemed to buy into my story and revealed everything that happened while he was away. I believe that we are now "back" on good terms and I can definitely use Gray as an asset to my game if needed.
Here is what I believe the current relationships are in this game:
* I had to use Microsoft Paint to make this while I was at work so I apologize if it's bad quality
I wonder if any idols are still in the game? Who could have it? Are any secret alliances forming that I don't know about? Does everyone really still trust me? So many questions, so little answers. Until next time!

Journal Entry 35, Day 25
To add to my last video, I also realized something very interesting last night. I was speaking to Gray and he said he had a feeling that Shaily was close to Audrey. I started to analyze all my conversations with Shaily stored in my memory and it clicked! I think Shaily could totally be working very closely with Audrey. Therefore, I need to be more cautious with what I say to Shailey. I definitely need to be more aware of all the connections that Audrey has because if I say the wrong thing I could be in serious trouble.
