Welcome, Pagoda, to your final 4 tribal council.
We will now bring in the members of the jury: Richard, Star, Mona, Ezra, Kyna, Miles, Tayne, and Evan, voted out at the last tribal council.
Please submit your vote to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 EST tomorrow. Answering the questions is highly recommended, but not mandatory.
To All: The last vote was unanimous against Evan. Is the vote tonight very hard to decide, or is it very easy to single a person out?
Kevin: You are the last male standing. Does this worry you at all, the fact that three women may vote against you?
Mya: Do you view yourself as a threat? Is there a possibility that the other three could vote against you?
Sami: If you had not earned immunity, do you think you would've been voted out tonight?
Whitney: Last tribal council you made a few bold statements. Does the thought that other players knowing you've said this worry you at all?
Probst: I will now read the votes.
...Whitney. We have a tie.
Per the survivor rules, in the case of a tie at the final four, there is a fire making challenge. While we can't literally make fire in this format, a challenge will be updated to this post shortly - the winner will move to the final 3 while the lose will have their journey in this game just cut short of the end. Good luck.
For this challenge, you two will have to use your brains to solve a series of riddles. The first one is posted below, and to answer it you must send the hosts the answer privately via google hangouts or by sending an e-mail (though google hangouts is preferred). If you answer the riddle correctly, then you will be given a second riddle. If you are incorrect, you may guess again as soon as you want but you will have five minutes added onto your time. You will do this until you have answered six riddles. To keep this as fair as possible, we will not base the winner off of who solved the riddles first, but who, from the time you started, solved the riddles the quickest. You will start your time when you send us your first guess for the first idol clue. If we take longer than five minutes to respond, then every minute we take will be deducted from your final tally so the activity of the hosts doesn't affect the game. If you have questions, be sure to ask. If both castaways don't complete the challenge by 5 PM EST tomorrow, than the person who made it the farthest will survive. If there is a tie, the person who made it to a certain stage first will win.
The first riddle: I placed in the amount I was voted for, and the memory is fresh, with a painful sore.
