  • Before I start my speech I want to congratulate the three of you for making it to Day 39. Even though I detest that I'm not in the position that you guys are in, I admit defeat. 

    I'll address you each in alphabetical order, so Cheiko... you're up first!

    - Firstly I want to apologize to you for some of the comments that I made before I was voted off. I was strategically trying to get you angry with me so that JP and Zach might think I wouldn't get your jury vote if they sent you out. 

    - Honestly, I was very underwhelmed by your opening statements. When we were talking at the final 4 you kept trying to explain to me that you weren't a floater and that you made a couple of HUGE moves. I was hoping that you would try to prove to the jury that you had an influence on the game, but I didn't see any evidence of that. In my opinion, you made it to the final 3 because of luck. You were on the bottom almost the entire game, and were taken to the end simply because you were never a threat to anybody.

    - I want you to prove me wrong. Tell me why I should vote for you over JP and Zach. Own up to your game. I don't like how you say in your speech, "In overall, while I wasn't one of the best players in the season and wouldn't say it was good to anyone else, it depends to anyone from their point of view." When you're explaining to the jury why you should win, you need to CONVINCE them that you played the best game even if you don't believe that you played the best game. So... convince me.

    Next up is JP!

    - I think you're an outstanding person and I really enjoyed getting to know you throughout the game. I wasn't shocked that you voted me out, but I was shocked that you didn't tell me beforehand. However, I appreciate that you admitted your cowardness in your opening statements. 

    - The bitter part of me wants to vote for either Cheiko or Zach to win because they were straight up with me about their vote at the final 4 even when they didn't have Immunity. Also, I don't think you would be where you're at if it wasn't for me. I spent more time trying to convince Cheiko to save you at the final 5 revote than you did. I also spoke up for you in the main chat at the final 5 revote more than you spoke up for yourself. However, the non-bitter part of me knows that you played the best game out of the three finalists.

    - My question to you is, do you think you would've been able to make it to the final 3 without my help?

    And finally we have Zach!

    - You're someone that I really connected with towards the first half of the game. I think that the intensity of the game started to split us apart towards the later half. With saying that, I still have a lot of respect for you as a person. 

    - I was least impressed with your opening statements. I felt as if you were summarizing the events of the game and not speaking to the parts in which YOU were involved with. You kept on using the word "we" which I think was a terrible move when you know that the jury's perception of you is that you road the coattails of myself and JP. 

    - I would like you to give me a couple of reasons as to how you played individually. You cannot include your vote at the final 5 tribal council because you eventually flipped back to me and JP on the revote.

    • Ok, well first of all I apologize you didn't like my speech. I made my speech the way I did because like I said at the beginning, my goal was to reveal anything people wanted to know what I did personally. I completely disagree that all I did was sum up the events of the game, because as many people do, they tell the game in their POV. Sorry I didn't just say "Hey I should win because this and this and this and this." That's just the way I like to do it. And the "we" thing, I'm not gonna go back and figure out who did what to every little agreement. We, as an alliance, agreed to do whatever we did. Okay, and the individually thing. Sure most of the game we played as a trio, but I don't like that I'm viewed as a "follower". If I had a personal issue with anything you guys wanted to do, I expressed that. I, as an individual, decided to confront Big Z and Chikeo in an attempt to vote you and then later Jp. I know the vote itself is against your rules, but I did do that as an idividual no? I did the same with Chris before he left.

      But it didn't work. You ended up backing out on the move by saving JP and voting off Big Z ... I want to know a successful move that you made as an indiviudal.

    • The following tribal I voted you out, and that was an individual move because I was gonna vote for you no matter who the others were voting.

    • Heyo Matty boy!

      My question to you is, do you think you would've been able to make it to the final 3 without my help?

      I do think I would have been able to make the final 3 without you. I always made sure to keep every single person as an option to work with, I tried to make it so if needed I could call upon the help of certain individuals to benefit my game. A good example of this is at the final 5, where Chieko threw her vote on Zach due to a deal we made. This saved my game and avoided me going home. I do however know for a fact my game would have been vastly different without you since you are one of the biggest reasons the 3 of us are sitting here right now. Take you out of the equation and this game gets completely changed, moreso than any other player.

      I would also like to say that you did help me a ton during the f5. But we cant see each others pms with Chieko and Zach man. I promise you I was fighting my corner extremely hard as doing it in public would allow Big Z a place to retort. I am not sure if I pmed the two of them more than you but know that I really did give that vote my all.

      Thank you very much for your question it was a blast playing with you friendo

    • (Retrying this again because when I hit the reply button IT DIDN'T POST blame Wikia Forums, I've put effort on doing this but I guess Wikia hates me now if this doesn't get posted again)

      Hello Matt G!

      - Firstly I want to apologize to you for some of the comments that I made before I was voted off. I was strategically trying to get you angry with me so that JP and Zach might think I wouldn't get your jury vote if they sent you out.

      As a finalist, even if you tried to make me mad about those things you told me if I wasn't on your side, I will apologize you back about what happened. Had I got voted out the last tribal I attended and I was sitting as a juror instead, I would either vote you or Jp as the winner since it's a hard choice coming from my part, but the both of you played great games, even if you regret about making those comments before, that doesn't exactly mean I am exactly giving up my jury vote for you.

      - Honestly, I was very underwhelmed by your opening statements. When we were talking at the final 4 you kept trying to explain to me that you weren't a floater and that you made a couple of HUGE moves. I was hoping that you would try to prove to the jury that you had an influence on the game, but I didn't see any evidence of that. In my opinion, you made it to the final 3 because of luck. You were on the bottom almost the entire game, and were taken to the end simply because you were never a threat to anybody.

      Okay, now I understand why you were disappointed about that. Sure, as someone who was in the bottom half of the time during merge, gave me a bit of a negative impact on myself. Yes, I wasn't seen as a threat to any of the jury at all despite having votes, nor I made flashy moves compared to some of them. Yes, I may look like I only came here just for luck, but that's not even it.

      The part where you mentioned a couple moves, however so far I mentioned only one, there's wasn't more than that. I only mentioned that around F5, Zach and Big Z forced me to vote Jp around that time. However, I did vote for him but once I realized I had a chance of switching my vote, I ended up flipping agaisnt them- At the end I changed it voted for Zach and I caused the 2-2-1 tie, had I took part on blindsiding Jp, it won't change a thing.

      - I want you to prove me wrong. Tell me why I should vote for you over JP and Zach. Own up to your game. I don't like how you say in your speech, "In overall, while I wasn't one of the best players in the season and wouldn't say it was good to anyone else, it depends to anyone from their point of view." When you're explaining to the jury why you should win, you need to CONVINCE them that you played the best game even if you don't believe that you played the best game. So... convince me.

      Now that it's the right time when you said that. Rightly after that I stated that part, I was explaining some of the cons I have done this game so far, as I stated in some parts on my Opening Statement. Since you asked for the positive part, here it goes.

      (Note that I used some parts that they gave the reason why they want to win on their Opening Statements, I suck at explaining but I just wanted to prove points here even if they don't)

      Why I should I be voted over Zach:

      - The way he said he has a good social game with everyone despite he tried, there's no much I can't say there because the tribal where Pory got voted out I confessed to him that I was one of the other three people who voted for him, I told him what happened around that round. The next day I had my toughts on what happened on the first Tribal Council as a merged tribe, and left me on read. He did do this at least few times before. Do you call that a social game when someone wants to works with you, but you leave them on read for a few rounds? No.

      In that case I was also social but not like the way Zach did it as mentioned, but did I leave people on read before? Only if they get voted out. Did I stopped working with one of them due to any of those reasons if they voted for someone else? No.

      -"Im not a big comp beast lmao" I meant, even if you did worse at challenges, that's not obviously the reason you might want to win this thing since IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU DECIDED TO GO WITH THAT ROUTE. Even if you didn't manage to win an immunity challenge, does that matter? At least everyone here (expect for you and Chris, who proved to be great at some challenges) were all physically decent- minus all the abstaining (Few jurors did this before and so do I, but I've already explained my reasons as I wouldn't want to be seen as someone who was lazy on the physical side in the FTC right now). That reason wasn't even necessary.

      - You said before that Zach worked his hardest to go to the FTC with you and Jp before. That's right. But if I was sitting on the jury right now instead of you, there's no difference here. Many jurors won't see what Zach has done to deserve his place here apart he was following you most of the time.

      Why I should I be voted over Jp: Despite he has admitted to lie to people only necessary, I wouldn't do the same way he has done it. But in other cases, there was exceptions when I was doing it. I mentioned what happened around F5 before as I stated on my second answer, and the way you wanted me to force a tiebreaker with Zach at F4 by voting on your side, and I was fine with it but it didn't last that long. Once I knew the reason that you'll beat him in a landside, you'll be sitting here right now instead of him. That's true. Later I admitted I was voting for you despite I didn't want to agree with this decision earlier, but you said that voting for you was a bad move here. Honestly? I'm not going to say it was bad, but you'll beat everyone including any of us in a 8-1-0 (whatever scenario you are up to, but it's still the same to me) vote.

      I'm sorry this did took long as I would have posted this on yesterday, but due to internet issues I was dealing I couldn't post this. Also I'll apologize some of the answers sounded vague, but if you have any questions about this, i'll respond them back.
