So pull up a chair as I explain what has happened. You might need one.
cheshire23's "Back in the Game" token given to roina_arwen.
So welcome back Ro! That also means that Week 17 is the final week to use byes and all but one of the special powers. (I think everyone knows which one that is)
In Tribe 1 we are saying goodbye to a long time veteran and a relative of a beloved veteran and a second generation contestant who has more than made her own mark:
That's two of the three.
The third? Well, that's a little more complicated:
myrna_bird uses her "Immunity for Someone Else" token to save maizing_grace. Considering that she used her own "immunity token" to save another player not long ago, it seemed that gesture has come full circle to save her this time.
This creates a Tie-Breaker for the Final Spot between former Second Chancers copyright1983 and [Bad username: yako"]. More on that later.
In Tribe 2, it really does show that it can be any given week, as we are ending up saying goodbye to someone who was "Very Safe" in the Last Contestant Only Vote, and another contestant that wasn't too far away from that category herself:
For the third and final elimination, we have an unusual situation. You are sitting down right? Things go all topsy turv... oh, no not the special power!! Just the situation itself. It's kind of "odd".
Earlier in the week, seeing what she figured was the "writing on the wall", tigrkittn sent me instructions to make sure that I knew that she wanted to use her Personal Immunity if she was in danger. It turned out that she was.
So, since she has used her immunity, the person with the next lowest votes is the one going home. In this case - dizzy_writing.
Saying "Thank you" to all of the people leaving really doesn't go far enough. Over the course of the season (or seasons in some cases) they have all produced some really cool stuff. Hopefully everyone takes the time to let them know that.
But the week isn't over yet, because we have the TIE-BREAKER between copyright1983 and yako!
The Topic is Full House.
