Authors Notes: Hello again. This has been a long time coming! Don't have a lot of time, but I hope you all enjoy this one. See y'all on the end notes.

As the tense music of elimination echoed, the camera zoomed into the Island where it landed on the Killer Bass sitting around the elimination campfire with Chris behind his oil drum. Crickets chirped in the distance

"I only have five marshmallows on my plate," Chris began, eying each of the campers before continuing. Strangely, he noticed Harold seem to be shaking and keeping his head down, but he brushed it off. He had seen the votes of course, so perhaps… nah he wouldn't get cold feet. Not after what Duncan and Geoff did to him today, no. "And these marshmallows represent the campers that will continue to be… campers."

Courtney rolled her eyes at Chris's dramatic effect while Duncan shot her a smile. Harold still seemed to be on the verge of hyperventilating, darting his eyes back and forth. Bridgette noticed this and put a hand on his back, "Are you okay, Harold?"

"Hm, uh, huh, why wouldn't I!" The nerd shifted towards her, "Gosh!"

Bridgette gave him a weird look, "Uh, okay… just don't worry about the elimination too much. Even if you do get eliminated," She gave him a smile, "Just know that you'll be remembered as a good guy."

Harold gulped, "A good guy?"

"Of course!" Bridgette laughed, "Don't think I don't remember you helping me conquer my fear of guns during the paintball challenge."

As the Surfer returned her attention back towards Chris, Harold returned to his racing thoughts. What was he even thinking!? Was using his mad-skills like this to orchestrate an elimination honorable? Even if Duncan was so cruel to him? And why did he even pick Courtney instead of Duncan to switch the votes on? He had made a terrible blunder! What would Leshawna think of him if she found out he had done this!?

"Campers, this is the final marshmallow of the night."

Harold jumped out of his thoughts and into the real world. Sitting up straight, he could see that when he was lost in his mind that everyone had gotten a marshmallow except himself and Courtney. Soon Chris would call his name, and then everyone watching at home would know what he did, unless –

"Wait!" Harold shot up to his feet. Chris shot him a glare while everyone else was giving him weird looks. Harold opened his mouth to speak, but nothing came out, and everyone either sat or stood up in awkward silence for a moment.



Courtney finally broke it by scoffing, "Harold, you might as well not protest your defeat. It's not very flattering."

"O-on the contrary," Harold coughed out, "I am announcing my resignation from the game," his gaze now focused squarely on Chris, "regardless of the outcome of the votes."

Amidst a sea of gasps over that revelation, the host didn't break his glare towards the nerd, "Are you absolutely certain of that Harold. You may be making a very big mistake."

"Yeah, Harold." Bridgette stood up and looked at him, a look of concern draped on her face. She leaned in and whispered, "It sounds like Chris is trying to tell you that you weren't voted off."

Harold nodded solemnly, "I know. But believe me Bridgette, quitting now is the only honorable thing to do."

"But –"

"Please believe me." Harold looked at the blonde intently. Bridgette squinted her eyes but said nothing, "O-okay, Harold, if this is really what you want…"

"It is," The ginger smiled.

"Ahem," Chris coughed loudly into his fist, while throwing his list of votes behind his back with his other hand, "If Mr. Bad decision maker would like to continue with his bad decision, then he needs to start going to the dock of shame."

Harold shook his head and muttered, "I was just about to, gosh…"

Soon enough, Harold was on his way down the dock with his now former team in tow. Duncan and Geoff let bygones be bygones and wished him well, and Bridgette gave him a big hug goodbye. Once he was on the boat of losers, and on the way to the Playa, he blanked, "Oh crap!"

"What is it?" Chef grunted from the front.

"I forgot to give my love note to Leshawna!" Harold cried, running over to the back of the boat to see Camp Wawanakwa disappearing from view.

"Where'd you leave it?" Chef asked.

"Under the floorboards in the Bass cabin," Harold answered before grumbling under his breath, "I left it there so Duncan wouldn't find it,"

Chef pursed his lips for a moment before answering, "Tell ya what, just because I like your grit I'll go over to your cabin while two teams are having breakfast tomorrow and let it blow in to the mess hall. One of those kids is bound to spot it and put the pieces together."

"You will?" Harold's eyes widened, "Oh many thanks, sir!"

"Don't mention it," Chef grunted, "Now shut yer trap! I got a headache from all that yelling I had to do today…"





Duncan: 1 (Harold)

Harold: 5 (Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Duncan, Geoff)

Screaming Gophers: Gwen, Heather, Leshawna, Lindsay, Owen, Trent.

Killer Bass: Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Duncan, Geoff.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Eva, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Izzy, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold.

13 – X-Treme Torture

The campers woke up the next day to the extreme challenges Chris had in store for them, with the prize being for whichever team won it being a mobile shower in addition to immunity. While Owen and Duncan remained unimpressed, both Courtney and Heather egged them on to do their hardest to win for the chance at showering. Meanwhile, Gwen and Bridgette discovered a note containing a mysterious haiku written for one of the girls on the Island, and both bickered on whether it was from Geoff or Trent.

First up was Trent and DJ on the skydiving challenge, where both boys had to jump off an airplane at 5,000 feet and try to land on a sofa each team would be pushing out on the beach. A reassuring pat on the back from DJ resulted in Trent accidentally falling off from the plane il' prepared and caused the musician to slam to the sands below. DJ himself fared much better, managing to land on the sofa leaving the Bass to an early lead.

Next up was Geoff versus Leshawna, with the challenge being trying to stay on an angry moose longer than the other. After trying to show Bridgette the tattoo on his butt, the Party Guy was flung off rather quickly, allowing Leshawna to even the score between the two teams.

Finally, for the tiebreaker, it was Heather and Lindsay against Courtney and Duncan for the mud-skiing challenge. Heather and Courtney went first, where the Queen Bee's plan in "cutting Courtney loose" didn't come to fruition when a lone branch ripped her top off. Courtney wasn't distracted though, and finished strongly by swiping all the flags despite needing to see a shirtless Heather. Lindsay and Duncan were next, and while things were looking dire for the punk, Courtney's encouragement allowed him to barely knock off Lindsay, leading to the Bass to win the challenge.

Just before elimination, Bridgette and Gwen were both stumped over who wrote the haiku, although both girls deduced that it was intended for Leshawna.

As for elimination however, things looked to be tight on the Gophers. Gwen and Leshawna wanted Heather gone, and roped in Trent to vote with them as well. Heather, noting Trent's injury, wanted him gone. She had Lindsay in her pocket for a vote, but knowing she needed at least another for her survival got the blonde girl to flirt with Owen for his vote in order to force the tie.

When the ceremony began, things looked to be split between Heather and Trent. Chris was just about to announce a death-defying challenge to settle things when Trent himself volunteered to go home, as he was still in a cast and in no condition to press forward in a tiebreaker. He managed to share a kiss with Gwen before he departed, cementing their relationship.

Heather: 3 (Gwen, Leshawna, Trent)

Trent: 3 (Heather, Lindsay, Owen)

Screaming Gophers: Gwen, Heather, Leshawna, Lindsay, Owen.

Killer Bass: Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Duncan, Geoff.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Eva, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Izzy, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent.

14 – Brunch of Disgustingness

After announcing that they were now halfway through the competition, Chris divided the campers by gender for a non-elimination eat-a-thon of grotesque proportions. Courtney and Heather butted heads on the girls' side whilst Owen was quickly accepted in the Bass trio of Duncan, DJ and Geoff.

In the end though, things weren't close. With Courtney and Heather vying for team leader, in addition to the numerical disadvantage on their end (as more on their side had to finish their meals than the guys), led the men to utterly demolish them, and the episode ended with the four guys winning the trip to the spa while the girls had to marinate in awkward soup.

Boys: DJ, Duncan, Geoff, Owen

Girls: Bridgette, Courtney, Gwen, Heather, Leshawna, Lindsay.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Eva, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Izzy, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent.

15 – No Pain, No Game.

The genders became even more lopsided, as when the guys came back from their trip and Chris announced the merge he added the additional pair in Eva and Izzy back to the game. The athlete wanted revenge on Bridgette and Courtney for voting her off back in the sleep challenge while Owen was a little more than giddy on seeing his old crush return.

Even if it wasn't for the two returnees, the drama would have still been heating up… at least on the girls' side. Courtney and Heather's newfound rivalry was at a boiling point but Owen had bonded rather well with the former Bass boys, turning their trio into a foursome. Geoff and Bridgette being reunited also sparked their romance further along.

The challenge itself was a fairly simple affair: any camper who refuses a challenge or does not complete it in ten seconds will be out, with the winner winning invincibility and a luxurious trailer. Courtney, her competitive streak shining, urged herself and Duncan to win by any costs, and was more than a little disappointed when he got out early on. Despite her love interest faltering however, the Type-A spitfire proved well at the challenge, besting all others until she was finally at the final two with Eva. And soon enough, after beating a bear in log rolling, she won out.

For elimination, the results weren't even close (so close that Izzy was disappointed that Chris didn't even need to show who she had voted for.) Despite Courtney and Heather's rivalry, both factions made a truce and targeted the newfound terror in Eva, who cursed violently as Chef dragged her to the Boat of Losers.

Christopher Columbus: 1 (Izzy)

Eva: 10 (Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Duncan, Geoff, Gwen, Heather, Leshawna, Lindsay, Owen.)

Heather: 1 (Eva.)

Final Eleven: Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Duncan, Geoff, Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna, Lindsay, Owen.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva

16 – Search and Do Not Destroy

Once the next game came and the challenge began, Chris gave an assortment of keys containing rewards in chest for each camper to obtain.

As everyone was finding their chests, new alliances began to form. While not official, the five former Bass campers seemed to be intent on sticking together for votes, and that number went to six when Owen was drifting more and more towards the Bass Boys orbit. This newfound mega-alliance left only two other partnerships left, Heather with Lindsay and Gwen with Leshawna. Izzy was more than happy to be the wild card in all of this.

Heather, noticing how massive the new Bass plus Owen alliance was decided to play hardball. Trying to breakup Courtney and Duncan, she forged a letter from the latter to meet the former on the docks, while using Lindsay to get the punk there where the Queen Bee would be waiting. Once Duncan was there, she tried to kiss him, but the punk wasn't having it and threw her into the lake as his girlfriend looked on grinning.

In the end, a newly soaked Heather thought she was done for, and only survived due to her invincibility pass she had received in her chest.

For the votes, things looked to be tight. Duncan wanted Izzy gone due to how unpredictable and athletic she was. Owen tried to balk at this, but when questioned if he actually made any romantic moves on Izzy yet his whimpered 'no' was all Duncan needed to hear to move forward on the plan. Bridgette felt sorry for the Big Guy, and grew annoyed over Duncan dominating the Bass group and over his influence on Courtney.

Heather, noticing a distraught Owen took advantage by getting him to spill the beans about the Bass's plan and persuaded him to vote for with the former Gophers for Duncan, sweetening the deal by saying it would probably impress Izzy. The Big Guy reluctantly agreed.

It then took a lot more convincing, but with a begrudging Gwen and Leshawna eventually being won over in voting for Duncan (as they couldn't vote for the immune Queen Bee), the punk was toast, but not before him giving a death glare towards the blubbering Owen as he got on the Boat of Losers.

Duncan: 6 (Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna, Lindsay, Owen)

Izzy: 5 (Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Duncan, Geoff)

Final Ten: Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Geoff, Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna, Lindsay, Owen.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan.

17 – Hide & Be Sneaky

Things were tense on the outset of the Hide and Seek challenge. Courtney was irate, wanting Owen gone for betraying the group even though most of the former Bass, especially Bridgette, felt more than a little sorry for him. Izzy, hearing how Owen stood up for her was touched, and the two officially began their relationship. Owen was still sad about Duncan, but his newfound girlfriend soon reverted him back towards his old chipper self. Heather steeled her and Lindsay up for a tight competition, as she knew that despite their truce last night Gwen and Leshawna were intent on getting rid of her. She also let it to be known it Izzy and Owen that she'd be more than happy vote for Courtney with them if they so choose to.

The challenge itself proved to be a doozy, with Chef Hatchet pulling no punches in trying to find any of the campers. The only two that managed to escape his grasp was Leshawna, who hid under the water with a straw and Courtney who cleverly concealed herself under the wooden floorboards of the old Boathouse. Heather also lucked out yet again, tagging DJ and Owen falling from the roof after she was caught and earning immunity.

For votes, Courtney was adamant at sending Owen packing for "revenge." A wary DJ and Geoff mostly went along with this, as they had no other option, but Bridgette was having second thoughts. It seemed to her that her once level-headed friend turned into a vindictive maniac with an intense competitive streak. As she was thinking about this, she bumped into Gwen, who told her of herself of her plan and others' to vote for Lindsay. The reasoning being that it would weaken Heather; she would lose her only ally left in the game. They had already roped in Owen and Izzy, so with her on their side it'd seal the deal. A still undecided Bridgette, told her that she'd think about it.

Heather, cursing at Courtney gaining immunity and with it there only in to win the votes of Owen and Izzy, got Lindsay to vote with her for Gwen.

This resulted in a dramatic bonfire ceremony where Lindsay was sent packing (yet not before cursing out Heather after realizing she was just using her) and Courtney quickly rounding on Bridgette, quickly deducing that she betrayed her.

Lindsay: 5 (Bridgette, Gwen, Izzy, Leshawna, Owen)

Owen: 3 (Courtney, DJ, Geoff)

Gwen: 2 (Heather, Lindsay)

Final Nine: Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Geoff, Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna, Owen

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay.

18 – That's Off the Chain!

On the night of Lindsay's elimination, a devastated Courtney chewed Bridgette out harshly for betraying her. Unfortunately, that proved to be a blunder, as a now in tears Bridgette elicited sympathy from all of the campers, and caused Geoff to desert her in favor of his girlfriend, with DJ in tow.

The once dominant C.I.T was on the bottom of the totem pole in the game, something that Heather took notice of.

On the following day, the new bike challenge began in earnest, with the newly large group of Bridgette, DJ, Geoff, Gwen, and Owen choosing to build their bikes together. Courtney and Heather were left on their own while Leshawna and Izzy seemed to be mysteriously absent once the racing commenced. In a twist of fate, all the campers had to ride each other's bikes for the initial race, where Bridgette, Owen, Heather and Courtney qualified for the second race for immunity.

Courtney starting to feel guilty over the night before and to show Bridgette she was sorry, forfeited the immunity race to Heather half-way on and helped Owen finish the race herself on the bike she was using as he had wrecked his own moments prior in a crash. Unfortunately, that was a tragic mistake, as due to Courtney's withdrawal came the fact that she didn't cross the finish line, but Owen was the last one too, leading to his instant elimination.

Izzy was heartbroken when she returned from her escapade with Leshawna to find her new boyfriend on the Boat of Losers. With fiery determination in the red heads heart, she promised herself to take out Courtney in revenge, not believing that it was a mistake.

Final Eight: Bridgette, Courtney, DJ, Geoff, Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen.

19 – Hook, Line and Screamer

Courtney's moment of guilt soon turned to rage upon accusations from Izzy that she set Owen up for elimination. This caused Bridgette to still be wary of her and Heather to be delighted that all the attention was not on her so she could lay below the radar.

After a horror movie night, the cast was shocked to learn that Chris and Chef had fled over an alleged serial killer on the loose. Despite Gwen immediately taking charge in the matter, most of the campers failed to follow her advice. Bridgette and Geoff went to the forest to make out, Leshawna was hungry and left the group for a sandwich, Courtney and Izzy were too busy arguing to listen, DJ ran away in fright before Gwen could explain anything to him and Heather took off to take a shower.

In the end, after Gwen knocked out an actual serial killer, DJ was eliminated by Chris due to Chef not needing to even scare him before he was out of the challenge.

Final Seven: Bridgette, Courtney, Geoff, Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ.

20 – Wawanakwa Gone Wild!

The former Gophers seemed to be fracturing as the final seven headed towards the next challenge. While Izzy wanted Courtney gone, Leshawna and Gwen were still firm in their conviction to oust Heather. On the former Bass, Geoff was adamant at wanting Courtney gone due to her past treatment of his precious "Bridgey-Bear" while the surfer girl herself was feeling conflicted over the C.I.T.

The animal challenge itself proved to be grueling, as immunity wasn't on the table but just a Five-Star dinner. Most of everyone roughed it alone during it, save for Bridgette with Geoff and Courtney and Heather. The latter two knew they were down on allies and made a begrudging alliance. Gwen was the first to deliver her animal and won the meal, and after that the jockeying for votes had begun.

Seeing how the fiery redhead wanted to avenge her "Big-O" at all costs, Leshawna and Gwen cut Izzy a deal: they'd vote for Courtney this time if she'd vote for Heather the next. Izzy jumped on the proposal. Geoff himself also wanted to vote for Courtney, but Bridgette wasn't so certain, remembering their friendship from earlier in the season, and got her and Geoff to vote for Heather.

Once the votes were read aloud at the ceremony, it came apparent that Courtney and Heather's partnership had fractured as soon as it was formed; each had voted for the other in order to save their skin. However, due to Izzy's alliance with Gwen and Leshawna, the C.I.T's goose looked to finally be cooked. Before she went, she did manage to apologize to Bridgette who accepted it in return, leaving on a high note.

Courtney: 4 (Heather, Izzy, Leshawna, Gwen)

Heather: 3 (Bridgette, Courtney, Geoff)

Final Six: Bridgette, Geoff, Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ, Courtney

21 – Trial By Tri-Armed Triathlon

Due to surviving by the skin of her teeth yesterday, Heather knew she was in a dire situation with Courtney gone. Shortly after the elimination, she went to the remaining Gopher girls and proposed an alliance to takeout the only couple left in the game: Bridgette and Geoff. All three laughed in her face. Next, she tried to go to Geoff and Bridgette and made up a lie that the other three were targeting them due to their relationship and was similarly laughed away. The Queen Bee steeled herself for a tight game, knowing her lack of immunity meant certain defeat.

For the next days' Triathlon challenge, Chris made the following pairs:

Heather and Izzy

Bridgette and Leshawna

Geoff and Gwen

By far Bridgette and Leshawna had the most synergy on the outset, as Gwen and Heather were both getting annoyed by Izzy and Geoff's antics. For the first challenge, Gwen, Bridgette and Heather were the feeders whilst Izzy, Geoff and Leshawna ate. With Geoff goofing around, it was a head to head heat between Izzy and Leshawna that the fiery redhead barely won out.

Next, after a canoe ride to Boney Island (and a heart to heart talk) Gwen and Geoff managed to deposit Beth's cursed idol first, causing the score to go to 1-1. Despite their superior chemistry, the best Bridgette and Leshawna could do now was to tie.

The final challenge was to assemble a totem pole with the past eliminated contestants. It wasn't even close, Izzy's hyperactive mind and wicked memory earned hers and Heather's immunity, and a disappointed Leshawna and Heather.

Now, with immunity in her pocket, Heather went to Gwen, Leshawna and Izzy and pitched her get Geoff out plan once more, as he was the only guy left on the island and was in a relationship with Bridgette. Leshawna and Izzy were open to the idea, but Gwen was firmly against it due to her bonding with Geoff during the challenge.

At the ceremony, a saddened Gwen and Bridgette looked on as the Party Guy was eliminated, but he took it in stride as the last dude standing and looked forward to partying at the Playa.

Geoff: 3 (Heather, Izzy, Leshawna)

Gwen: 1 (Bridgette)

Bridgette: 1 (Gwen)

Final Five: Bridgette, Gwen, Heather, Izzy, Leshawna

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ, Courtney, Geoff.

22 – Haute Camp-ture

While giving the Final Five a day off, Chris visited the eliminated campers at the Playa to see how they were doing. Most were handling their eliminations fine, save for Owen who was busy hiding as Duncan wanted to find him to "pay him back" for betraying him earlier in the season.

Throughout the episode, everyone was asked who they'd support to win the million.

Courtney, DJ, Geoff, Ezekiel, and Tyler were on Team Bridgette.

Duncan, Cody, Eva and Trent were on Team Gwen.

Owen and Noah were on Team Izzy.

Harold, Justin, Lindsay, Beth, Katie and Sadie were on Team Leshawna

Heather had squat.

At the end of the episode, Chris gathered the contestants around the pool and asked who they wanted to get axed. After Katie and Sadie mistakenly said they wanted Leshawna to come back so they could hang out, a snowball of people telling Chris not to count their votes caused the home-girl to actually rack up enough votes in the end.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ, Courtney, Geoff, Leshawna

23 – Camp Castaways

After a rainy rest day of nothing going on, The Final Four woke in horror to find that the water had drifted their cabins to the middle of Wawanakwa lake. Izzy was stuck in the confessional, which also drifted away, as she stole some of Chef's coffee and was up all night reciting the entirety of The Lord of the Rings trilogy to herself.

After eventually being marooned on an unfamiliar island, Bridgette, Gwen and Heather emerged from the cabin, and despite the Surfer Girl wanting to keep the group together, the Goth and the Queen Bee were at each other's throats and it looked like nothing would get done. Izzy was busy making a new friend, commander coconut. Eventually, after an encounter with a snake that led the three girls to flee to a nearby treehouse, Izzy appeared and scared off the snake. She encouraged the remaining campers that no good "Cheffy" was behind this, and got them all to dress up in war paint to ambush him.

Seeing a nearby cloud of smoke billowing up, the four of them ambushed Chris and Chef chilling out by some trailers with the rest of the crew.

For elimination last night, Izzy was irate that Chris would eliminate her new friend in Commander Coconut and vow to win the hundred grand to put his now fatherless children through med-school.

Commander Coconut: 1 (Chris)

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ, Courtney, Geoff, Leshawna, Commander Coconut

24 – Are We There Yeti?

The Final Four awoke to Chef deep in the forest, who told them that they would be grouped by pairs and tasked to make it back to camp first. The pairs were:

Bridgette and Izzy

Gwen and Heather

At first, Bridgette was mortified over the challenge. Being left alone in the woods was her number one fear, and now she had to be it for the whole challenge!? Izzy was quick to console her though, and soon enough they were off, albeit slowly, their way back to camp. Gwen and Heather were also a fair bit slow, as they were constantly bickering the whole way through.

When they stopped for the night to make camp, Izzy and Bridgette had a surprise heart to heart. Izzy, knowing how Courtney apologized to her near the end, apologized for being so harsh to the C.I.T over Owen's elimination and should have been more understanding instead of trying to egg her on. Bridgette was touched, and said that while Courtney might hold a grudge, she could not and thanked Izzy in return for helping her with her phobia.

Once morning came, Bridgette and Izzy were surprised to see that they had made it back first, but that surprise soon vanished when Gwen and Heather emerged from the forest in a screaming match.

For elimination, it was Chef's decision, and he had chosen Gwen for it, as he lamented the diary from her that he stole from her in order to read before they got there was super boring. The goth, while disappointed, gave both Izzy and Bridgette hugs and told them to beat Heather for her.

Gwen: 1 (Chef Hatchet)

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ, Courtney, Geoff, Leshawna, Commander Coconut, Gwen

25 – I Triple Dog Dare You!

The Final Three ladies of the competition all prepared for a tough penultimate battle once Chris explained the dare challenge.

However, it seemed that only Bridgette and Heather were having trouble. Izzy was vanquishing dare upon dare with ease and it looked like nothing would stop her, and she amassed a large amount of freebies that she could use for rare-dares that she couldn't do, such as fly in a plane.

Once Bridgette landed on a dare from Duncan to eat a whole steak raw, it looked to be curtains, until Izzy decided to save her friend by offering half of her freebies, much to Heather's chagrin. Now both the blonde and redhead were pummeling her with dares, and by each one the Queen Bee seemed to be on her way out. The final nail in the coffin was a dare from Lindsay: to let Chef Hatchet shave your head. In the very last second, Heather kicked the razor from Chef's hands, but it landed back on her head and shaved all of it off. This resulted in the Queen Bee getting eliminated, and the newfound buddies of Izzy and Bridgette to make it to the Final Two.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ, Courtney, Geoff, Leshawna, Commander Coconut, Gwen, Heather

26 – The Very Last Episode, Really!

Bridgette and Izzy emerged from their sleep excited for some friendly competition. Both had bonded considerably during the woods challenge and their alliance to takedown Heather the past day. The two girls were also ecstatic to finally reunite with Geoff and Owen. It was also revealed to Bridgette that it was Harold who had wrote that letter to Leshawna all the way back during the extreme sports challenge, and that the two had gotten together.

With the competitors set and peanut gallery seated, the supporters broke down like this:

Team Bridgette had: Ezekiel, Justin, Katie, Sadie, Tyler, Harold, Lindsay, DJ, Courtney, Geoff, Leshawna and Gwen.

Team Izzy had: Noah, Owen, Cody, Trent, Duncan, Eva and Heather.

It was a hard fought race, as both girls were considerably athletic, and in the end a victor was crowned the winner of Total Drama Island.

Even after that though, Harold was thankful that he had quit before it would be revealed that he rigged the votes that fateful night of the boot camp challenge, as his conscious was now clean.

Elimination Order: Ezekiel, Noah, Justin, Katie, Tyler, Cody, Beth, Sadie, Harold, Trent, Eva, Duncan, Lindsay, Owen, DJ, Courtney, Geoff, Leshawna, Commander Coconut, Gwen, Heather

Winners: Bridgette/Izzy

Authors Notes: Yup, there you have it! Thought I had more to say but... I guess I really don't, lol. As always, new Noah's Gambit should be out soon-ish. Oh, and I super appreciate those who private message me and I am deeply sorry I haven't replied. I have a lot of anxiety, and seeing that (19) next to the Private Messaging tab always makes my stomach drop. I promise that I will hopefully get to them soon, though!

Have a nice day! :D
