A Tiebreaker is a event at Tribal Council where two or more castaways have the same amount of votes counted against them, and nobody else a vote count higher. In which, some sort of tiebreaker is necessary to break the tie.

About

A tiebreaker is a situation that occurs when more than one castaway have the highest number of votes. There are different ways to break a tie, usually starting with a revote. Other than there, the game had shown several ways to break a deadlocked tie.

Rules

Proved in previous seasons of Survivor, a revote will commence once a tie occurs (unless it is a Final Tribal Council tie, in that instance there will be an extra juror). Prior to the revote, a bit conversation is allowed to occur, that may sway people's votes to send a certain person home. In that revote, only the castaways who are not affiliated with the tie are eligible to vote.

Revote

A revote occurs almost every time the votes are tied at a regular Tribal Council. The list below indicates each time a revote has happened throughout ORG , and what the outcome has been. The majority of the time, someone is eliminated after a revote, but if the revote is deadlocked, a tiebreaker challenge or rock draw occurs.

Deadlock Tie Mechanisms

Fire-Making Challenge

A fire-making challenge on Tumblr Survivor is very different from one of Survivor, but they both have the same outcome. The castaways still in deadlock must compete in a challenge (usually an online game), and the one who has the highest score or time wins, while the other is eliminated. The chart below describes every time a fire-making challenge has occurred.

Purple Rock

The Purple Rock tiebreaker is a more rare choice that decides a tie, and has only happened in four seasons thus far. The tied contestants are safe, as well as anyone who has individual immunity or has played a Hidden Immunity Idol. Everyone else must pick a rock out of a bag, and let luck decide their fate. Out of all the yellow rocks (which are safe), there is one purple rock, which means elimination for the castaway who pulls it out. In Tumblr Survivor: Newfoundland, a special Idol called the Ruby Idol gave the holder the power to immediately send the vote to a Rock Draw.
