Tumblr Survivor: Sapphire Isles is the eighth season of the online version of the Reality TV show, Survivor. On June 5th, 2014, Jessica was crowned the Sole Survivor in a 5-2 vote over Jack.

This season introduced the Fan Favorite Award, which Foxx won with over 40% of the votes cast being for him.

Production

The season was announced on April 9, 2014 and the applications were available at the same time officially closing on April 13th, 2014 due to the 16 player format. The application process was a simple questionnaire on the submit page asking an array of questions from favorite Survivor player / season to favorite types of food and life experiences. It was heavily hinted at by the host that all the information supplied in the applications would not only help decide the cast, but also play apart in a future challenge.

Despite being inducted into the Tumblr Survivor canon by being invited to the wiki, the season is the first to take place on an Island that doesn't exist in the real world. Sapphire Isles is an island in the fantasy novel A song of Ice and Fire where the water is so clear and gleaming it appears to be full of sapphires.

The cast and first order of business was officially announced April 14th, 2014.

The blog for this season was Jefra Probst and the tag is ExileIsle

Twists/Changes

Gender Wars: For the first time in Tumblr Survivor tribes were divided by identified gender.  Selwyn composed of male players, Galladon composed of female players. (Though it wasn't a pure twist since

Exile Island: For the first time in Tumblr Survivor the dreaded Exile Island comes into play. Before each immunity challenge both tribes will be voting to send a fellow contestant (whether it be on the opposite team, or same team depending on the terms of the vote that day) into complete exile. This means the exiled will be left out of their tribe chat until the immunity challenge is over. They will be asked to not speak game talk with any member of their tribe until let back into the chatroom. Only contact they will have is with the member of the opposing tribe that was selected to join them on Exile. (Two contestants will always be sent to Exile until the merge, then it will only be one). Despite being on Exile contestants will still be expected to compete in Immunity Challenges, though due to the fatigue of surviving Exile the scores they submit will have a percentage taken off forcing tribemates to think long and hard about who they banish. The upside of being forced on exile is the island is the only way in Survivor: Sapphire Isles to receive a Hidden Immunity Idol clue. Once the clue is obtained the player is allowed to keep it to themselves or share it with other tribemates once they return to camp. However, pre-merge will only consist of one idol per tribe therefore the two clues given to the two exiles will be different.

Hidden Immunity Idol Clues: The Clues provided to exile will require Tumblr to obtain the idol. Each Clue has an answer, whatever the answer is must be searched on tumblr as a tag. The host has created extra blogs that will post pictures in the tag, and hidden on the blog is the confirmation that it contains an idol clue. (The announcement of the immunity idol is announced on the blog if you look for it, no need to send any asks or submissions). The more tags a player collects the easier it will be to narrow down the blog.

Hidden Immunity Idol: The same Idol we all know and love and same rules. Player must tell the host that they are using their idol before 20 minutes prior to the votes being due. Once the idol is played any votes against the user will not count and the player with the second highest amount of votes will be voted out.

Sapphire Idol: The Sapphire Idol is a special made created by the host that automatically forces a re-vote when played before the vote, making the two players who had their name written down the most immune for the re-vote. This idol does not guarantee its user's safety. This idol was found the same way as the other idols, but required an additional number combo code to get it. Once the idol was found the player had a choice of getting this idol or a regular hidden immunity idol, once one was picked the other idol would be randomly generated to another player in the game providing a lot of risk.

Jessica Sole Survivor

^1. Violet was removed from the game after revealing that her actual identity was Masen Kuppler.
^2. With a deadlock tie between Katie and Michelle, the Purple Rock tiebreaker was used, eliminating Maria (despite not having any votes against her).
^3.Due to Wan and Jessica playing Hidden Immunity Idols, Jack being Immune, and Jack playing a special Idol which negates the votes against the two castaways with the most votes cast against them that Tribal (Mikey and Jessica), with Foxx being the only remaining person eligible to receive votes he was automatically eliminated.

^2 Emma did not participate in the Rock Drawing tiebreaker because she played the Hidden Immunity Idol prior to the initially tied vote.

Trivia

  • This is the first season to feature only 16 castaways since Tumblr Survivor: Samoa.
  • This is the first season in which the tribes were divided by gender.
  • This is the first season where a tribal immunity challenge resulted in a tie and required a tie breaker.
  • This is the first season in which a castaway was eliminated from the rock drawing tiebreaker.
  • This is the first non-All Star season in which the final 2 or 3 was comprised fully of returning players.
