Survivors Ready? Go!

With the official cast revealed for Survivor Season 37 - David vs. Goliath yesterday by CBS, I'm very pleased to introduce the first ever in history...

Steemit Sole Survivor Contest!

The first episode Survivor - David vs. Goliath will air on the 26th of September on CBS, but this post signals the official start of the main contest which will run from now until approximately the 19th of December, 2018.

How to Participate

  1. Pick the Survivor that you think will win this season from the list of 20 contestants below.
  2. Write your choice in the comment section of this post.
  3. If your pick is crowned the champion of Survivor - David vs. Goliath, YOU WIN!
    Simple as that!

Worth Playing For? (The Prizes)

  • WINNER: 20 STEEM to the Steemian who correctly guesses the winner of Survivor 37 - David vs. Goliath by Monday the 24th of September at 6pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
  • FIRST RUNNER UP: At least one Steem Basic Income (SBI) share provided by contest sponsor @freedomshift through his #ccc initiative if your Survivor choice to win finishes the season in second place. See below for more info on the #ccc initiative.
  • BOOBY PRIZE: @rentmoney had a great idea of rewarding the first loser, so has kindly added a booby prize. If your chosen survivor has the unfortunate distinction of being the FIRST to be voted out on the first episode, @rentmoney will give you a starter @dustsweeper account! There will be a maximum of 5 @dustsweeper starter accounts provided - if more than 5 qualify, @rentmoney will use a random generator to pick who gets the accounts.
  • PLUS - A BONUS GAME IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW! Because the contest has attracted 20 participants, contest sponsor @o07 will award a lucky winner one ounce of silver including shipping costs! THIS BONUS GAME IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW and if we get another 20 participants @o07 will run another silver giveaway! See below for details.
  • ADDITIONAL PRIZES: May be added if we pick up sponsorships along the way.

Steemit Sole Survivor Contest Rules

  • Pick the ONE contestant who you think will be the winner at the end of this season of Survivor - David vs. Goliath. Guesses must be placed in the comment section of THIS POST by the 24th of September at 6pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
  • If more than one Steemian correctly picks the Sole Survivor, the 20 Steem prize will be split evenly between those with the winning pick.
  • If no Steemian guesses correctly, prizes will be as follows: 15 STEEM for the Steemian whose contestant remains in the game the longest, 5 STEEM for the Steemian that stays in second longest and the SBI share(s) will given to the Steemian whose pick lasts third longest.
  • Entries in the comment section below will be accepted until Monday the 24th of September at 6pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). At that point, your choice will be locked. Until that time, feel free to edit, delete, change as desired. I will create a final post summarizing everyone's final and locked picks.
  • Survivor seasons can be unpredictable - I'll do my best to fairly distribute the prizes in case of any ties or major twists!

Come on in guys!

Enough talk, let's meet the castaways!

It is Time to Vote

This contest is ON! Out of the 20 Survivor - David vs. Goliath contestants listed above, who do you think will be this season's Sole Survivor?

Let's see those guesses in the comment section below!

Bonus Game Unlocked!

Since we have attracted 20 participants, a bonus game has been unlocked by contest sponsor @o07. This bonus game is in addition to the main contest and is happening right now and the prize is one ounce of silver!

As outlined in my previous post here's how it works: using a randomized team maker I have paired each of the 20 Steemians who confirmed contest participation in the comments on my previous posts with each of the 20 Survivor contestants. If your assigned contestant wins this Survivor season, @o07 will ship you an ounce of silver and will even cover shipping costs!

Here are the pairings of the 20 Steemians and 20 Survivors:

SteemianSurvivor
@o07Kara Kay
@doctorcryptoNick Wilson
@dfinneyAngelina Keeley
@franciscana23Christian Hubicki

@dragsCarl Boudreaux
@gabrielatravelsGabby Pascuzzi
@fuentesjo3006Alec Merlino
@happymeAlison Raybould
@aussieninjaElizabeth Olson
@pbockJessica Peet
@eojNatalie Cole

If you're just finding the contest now, it's not too late to get in on the bonus. If we reach another 20 participants by the contest deadline on the 24th of September, we will run another bonus game with another ounce of @o07's silver as the prize! Just make a guess for the main contest in the comments below and you'll be added to the participant list. Once there are 20 new participants, we'll run another bonus round.

And Now a Word from Our Sponsors

  1. @freedomshift has kindly offered to contribute at least 1 SBI share towards the Steemit Sole Survivor Contest. He does this all the time through #ccc, please go check him out and consider joining the #ccc initiative! Thank you @freedomshift!
  2. In addition to participating himself, @o07 has made the incredibly generous offer to contribute an ounce of silver complete with shipping costs. Thank you @o07!

Many thanks to both @freedomshift and @o07 for their kind offers! Please check them out to see what they're up to these days!

Special Thanks

Special thanks to the @rentmoney, @costanza, @pifc/ @thedarkhorse trifecta for their support through the Pay It Forward Contest. You brought a lot of support and interest to the Steemit Sole Survivor Contest, thank you!

Previously on Survivor

@suitcasemama and I are huge (and extremely nerdy) fans of the American reality show called Survivor. You know the one - where you have to survive on a deserted island, play silly challenges, and vote people off the island. I put out a post a few weeks ago to gauge interest in a Steemit Survivor Contest. Since then I've been saving up Steem to be able to award a large 20 Steem Prize. Good news, I've reached my goal and now have the 20 Steem prize just waiting to award to the winning Steemian!

The Tribe Has Spoken

I will also occasionally run weekly contests where you will guess who's next to be voted off the island. I may run a mid-season contest as well, depending on interest. These are in addition to this main contest so they will be in separate posts. Look for those announcements, coming soon!

Good luck to all and I hope you enjoy the contest!

Awesome!

I'm happy to add a private channel in my discord server if you guys want?

We can use for banter etc during the week and to keep everyone up to date with the posts?

Kara Kay looks like she is a real-estate agent and ex cheerleader from San Diego!

I found a link to the profiles that covers some more details about the participants.

If I had to pick 1 winner it would have to be my girl Kara lol fun times ahead!

Thanks for the bonus game @o07, that's very kind of you.

·
·

No worries, hope you are on the mend mate.

·

All in on the cheerleader, nice! Thanks for the offer for the discord channel, maybe drop a link here in the comments somewhere? I always forget about Discord, but will try to pop in once in a while for sure!

And thanks again for the silver sponsorship! I don't have much hope for a Natalie Cole victory, but Survivor is a funny game, you never know!!

EDIT: Not enough info to make a 20 Steem decision? For host Jeff Probst's take on the contestants, check out his thoughts on the Davids here and his assessment of the Goliaths here.

Added to the main post above! I hope that helps!!!

·

Hmmm. It's making me reconsider my pick. I'm thinking the Vietnamese MMA fighter has a good chance if she can get along socially. I'll stick with who I've picked (Christian Hubicki) because I think that if he can get past the first few votes, he'll be able to fly under the radar. We'll see.

·
·

Those were my thoughts too. Tough, but if she has a huge personality, that could get her early. Hubicki is a solid pick!

This is to confirm my co-sponsorship of this contest. Listed on -

Please update the status of this contest as well as winners on the most recent version of the "Current Open Contests in #ccc".

Please also refer to the same for the bonus or extended offers of co-sponsorship of additional SBI and SBD - above the basic offer of 1 SBI.

Thank you!

·

Thank you @freedomshift! I'll be sure to check in with #ccc when the contest closes on the 24th of September, and then again when the winner is announced in December. And when I run the weekly contest I'll check in yet again. Lots of checking in! :)

Those are whooping prizes for this contest! I wish I have been a fan of the series so I can at least give a good guess but no. Still, good luck to all participants! And thanks to the sponsors who keep Steemit more exciting with contests. 😊

·

Aw, this contest is the perfect excuse to become a fan ;)

·
·

Ah, hahaha! So maybe I should dig on the previous series and do a marathon watching before the new series starts. I wish I'll have time for that. I remember when I did marathon review of six seasons of Game of Thrones and it was unhealthy. There were days when I have only few hours of sleep. 😀

I'm probs too late, but if not I pick : John Hennigan

·

Looks like Gabrielatravels beat me to it, so I'll change to : Dan Rengering

·
·

Hey @aussieninja! You're welcome to pick John Hennigan too, just will have to split the grand prize with @gabrielatravels if he wins. Plus whoever else may pick him too ;)

·
·
·

Oh man... looks like there is 3 or 4 guys that everyone is picking...

I'd like to pick a dark horse just for fun...
I'll pick Nick Wilson to mix it up a bit.

·
·
·
·

Nice, that's our first pick for Mr. Wilson!

·
·
·
·
·

A volleyball? On a deserted island? I can't lose!

Thanks Joe!!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Wilsooooooon!

I gonna go with David rickenbacker.

Here's hoping I'm wrong and my Silver contestant Peet wins 😛

Voting for a David on a Season called David vs. Goliath, nice one! Who knows, that would be very poetic actually!

All right I am going to have to go with Davie Rickenbacker

·

Another vote for Mr. Rickenbacker! #goteamdavid!

Turns out my auto-picked match is standing directly beside my chosen winner of Alec Merlino. That gives me (and all of us) 2 chances to win! Very sweet indeed. Interesting how both are also from the same team. Go Alec go!

·

Great, another vote for Alec! Your autovote (Alison) actually looks compelling...I think she'll go far in the game!

·
·

That would be something if either of them actually win.

Mike White is who I was thinking of picking second. So I'm glad to have him! I like the unassuming guys. Hopefully, he'll perform well.

I can't wait for the first episode!

·

Me too! Just a few weeks away!

In addition to your autovote, is Mike White your main vote as well?

·
·

My main vote is going to be Christian Hubicki.

·
·
·

Okay, noted!

I'm going to stick with my auto pick Bi Nguyen. She seems pretty badass from her bio. Lock it in. Good luck to all

·

The MMA fighter, nice! She definitely looks like she'll have no issues with the elements, and that's half the battle. Nice choice!

Uu, looks exciting! Actually I have 3 guys in my mind but I would go with John Hennigan. Don't disappoint me, buddy! Haha

·

John Hennigan seems to be the epitome of a Goliath, he'd make a great champ! Maybe there will be some big showdown between him and David Rickenbacker!

·
·

Indeed, I had David Rickenbacker in mind too :)

A Goliath : Natalia Azoqa!

·

She looks tough!!!! Grrrrrr!

My pick is Gabby Pascuzzi on #teamdavid. I think she'll slide through to the merge at least, then hopefully use her smarts to make some big moves!

Glad you're joining the contest, your choice for Davie is noted!

Alec Merlino

·

Welcome to the contest! Another vote for Alec!

Alec Merlino

·

Noted! And y bienvenidos al concurso!!! :)

Awesome ... this will be the first time I will be following the show but I have watched an episode or two here and there.

Angelina Keeley will take this down :)

I am going to add a booby prize ( no not that kind of booby ) of a starter @dusty account to who-ever's pick goes out first. Max 5 dusty accounts. If there are more then 5 booby winners, I will use a random generator to pick who gets the accounts.

As a side note ... I nominated you in a contest to receive 9 shares of SBI and it looks like you won. The winners post should be up soon but below is the winning announcement in the official topic --- > https://steemit.com/dosdudes/@dosdudes/re-rentmoney-re-dosdudes-dosdudes-giving-away-10-share-of-sbi-1-for-you-and-9-for-your-minnow-friend-20180908t141612532z

·

AWESOME! Thanks so much @rentmoney! I'll update the post to include the booby prize, great idea, thank you!

Also, thanks so much, I hadn't realized you nominated me for the @dosdudes contest and that we won! I'm not sure how it works, do I have to do anything or just wait for the @dosdudes winner post?

And your vote for Angelina is noted! I think you're the first one to vote for her!

·
·

@dosdudes said they were going to create a winners post but they haven't yet. I thanked them in their original topic. They sent the Steem in already for your 9 SBI shares so you should be seeing an increase in the vote value from SBI in your upcoming posts. Sometimes it takes a week or two for SBI to add your shares to the vote pool.

Ooooo!! It has begun!! Some tough decisions to make. Let me do a bit of homework before i lock in!!! Exciting!!!

·

No worries, you still have 2 more weeks to make your choice! Research away!!!! :)

·
·

Okay, i have decided!! Still two minded but i think im Going to go with Nick Wilson!! Lock me in!!

Did you just end up assigning each of us a contestant? I am happy with who my name is by. 😄 Sorry I missed this post until today!

·

Oh wait! Just read more closely. So my bonus game person is Angelina Keely.... I will pick Alison Raybould as my main contestant.

·

Great! Your vote for Alison is noted! You're the first one to pick her! I actually have a good feeling about her, so watch her get voted out first ;) Haha! :)

·
·

At least if she is voted out first there is a loser prize in this contest! ☺️

·
·
·

That's right, thanks to @rentmoney!! :)

I have been out of pocket the last week or so, kinda out of the loop. But, I’m going to go with Carl Boudreaux as my choice. Just a random pick, looks like no one else has pick him.

·

One vote for Carl, noted! And you're right, no one else has picked him yet!

How could I go wrong going with @o07
My vote goes to Kara Kay❗

mi voto para @o07

·

Although @o07 is a major fan, he's not actually on the show as a contestant (at least not yet!) so I'm afraid your entry is invalid :(

You can try to pick again from the list of 20 Survivor: David vs. Goliath contestants mentioned in the post if you want!

Felicitaciones a los ganadores, amigo @eoj, disculpa no entendí bien la dinámica del juego, hay días como hoy que no funciona el traductor de Google, se que no es excusa, pero no hablo ingles, si me lo permites deseo seguir participando, un fuerte pero cariñoso abrazo.
