Stranded in Australia

Season 8 – All-Stars

(June 20, 2009 – July 21st, 2009)

In the sequel to the first, (All-stars) Stranded in Australia featured returning players from the previous three seasons. Each season was designated its own tribe of 7 players. The set up was the same as the first All-stars: Two tribes would face Tribal Council and would both banish one member each from the tribe. The tribe that won the next Immunity Challenge would then decide which of the two would join their tribe; the other person would be voted out of the game. In a small twist on the original, the first night featured a vote where each season voted off one person from their tribe and onto another. Ultimately, the season suffered from the lack of all-stars willing to return, missing some heavy hitters in Katie, Leann, Jessie, Ghandia, and others. Luckily, what they lacked… Scout made up for in spades. From the very beginning she ruled India with an iron fist. Not wanting to have a repeat of their other season, the Indians rallied around their charismatic leader. In what quickly became a running joke, Scout threatened to quit the game every step of the way.

What started out as genuine became part of her strategy. Her alliance members wanted to keep her in the game so badly that they agreed to vote out whomever she wanted to. The India alliance, led by Scout, dominated the entire game. Superstar players like Carl, Teresa, and Heidi fell by the wayside trying to change their games from the first time they played. Some highlights included Kathy being voted out four times, the most interesting being the first time when she fought with tribe leader, Carl, instead of fighting for her life; Jenna’s fight for her life and very nearly succeeding; Hunter’s idol play and the ousting of majority member, Willard; and the ousting of Burton and Rob based solely on their pre-game alliance across seasons. In the most shocking and poetic moment of the season, Scout’s alliance members voted her out in the final 4 opting to keep the jury’s favorite underdog, Alex. Alex’s temper often went head to head against India’s equally feisty alliance. In the end, the underdog story of Alex surviving until the end and fighting with India every step of the way afforded him the win in a nearly unanimous victory.
