Reader Question about Willard
« on: March 26, 2005, 09:33:16 AM »
I got this question and I have no idea as to the answer of it.  I was wondering if any of you guys could supply a good answer for me to e-mail back:

Hi Trevor,
I read your comments on the RealityFanForum.  You seem knowledgeable about the game of Survivor.  There is one thing I don't understand.  I thought that a tribe member couldn't sit out two challenges in a row.  In Episode 4, Willard sat out of the Sumo competition.  In Episode 5, Willard sat out the very next competition, the Bottle Diving competition.  If he was made to compete, I know the results would have been enitirely different.  Do you know what's going on?
Thanks,
Dave

I checked back in my recaps and I think Koror may have gotten away with one.  Willard did sit out those two Challenges back to back.

I'm pretty sure this has happened before!!! The sitting out 2 competitions in a row only applies to the same 3 day period ...... such as the RC, then the following IC!!!

You can't sit out two challenges in a three day cycle , if Willard sat out the RC, he can't sit out the IC. However the next three day cycle is new and he can sit out the RC.

So it was a new cycle and this allowed him to sit out the following challenge.  That makes sense.

Quote
The rule, as I understand it, is that a contestant may not sit out two consecutive challenges occuring in a 3 day boot cycle. After a TC, the slate is wiped clean and the counter starts over...
You understand correctly.

For example in S4, after the tribes were mixed up, Rotu had 8 members and Maraamu had 5. The following immunity challenge was was the "Life's a tapestry" challenge.
John, RobM and Sean were sit-outs for this game. Regardless, Maraamu lost and Sarah was booted.
The next challenge was the "Tiki Towers" challenge (for RC). This was the original blindfold challenge, Rotu decided to use only Robert, John, Tammy and Gabe for the challenge. Meaning that RobM and Sean sat out again (along with Vee and Zoe).

So it is fair to assess that "no person can sit-out in back-to-back challenges", unless we are in the next 3day cycle.
