Who will succeed? Find out…tonight…On Simvivor…



It’s 5am in the morning and all the contestants are asleep; Gemma has been sat near the sea for some time…



Gemma: I felt really down in the middle of the night, I had a dream about my family and it really got to me…



James: What you doing down here?



Gemma:
Oh, just chilling…
James: (yawns) What time is it?
Gemma: Not sure, it’s late though…
James: So what’s up, you upset about something?
Gemma: Ah, I’m just missing my family…you know?
James: Yeah me too, I miss my sister…



Gemma: You two close?
James: Very, she’s amazing…I never told her I was coming here…
Gemma: I thought I’d be able to see them before I came on the show, but we couldn’t…
James: Imagine what they’ll be like at home though…
Gemma: My dad will be saying “what about her exams” (laughs).
James: (laughs) He sounds like a character…
Gemma: Yeah, he’s one of those really old fashioned guys, but he’s lovely.
James: You should go back to bed, try and take your mind off home and enjoy yourself.



Gemma: Yeah, I think I will…thanks James.



James: I really like Gemma, there’s not that much of an age difference and I think I’ll probably get on with her more than any of the others…



The sunlight arrives and both islands are feeling nervous about the trials.



Danielle:
You ready to go Craig?
Craig: No (laughs) I’m bricking it…
Danielle: Oh jesus, I had faith in you…
Craig: I’m okay…It’ll be okay…



Danielle: If Craig fails this, I would like your permission to drown him (laughs)



Jonny: You’re a good swimmer, so you should be good.
Craig: Yeah, but there could be like an Olympic swimmer on the other island.



Kelsey: Pretend you’re rubbish then…just lie…and make them think they don’t need to try…
Danielle: Oh girl, that’s devious.
Kelsey: We want to win, don’t we?
Craig: (laughs) I’ll do it…



James:
The trial is around the corner, I won’t lie, I’m a little nervous…the island is depending on me…



Claire: I’d give you a pint, but all I have is crisps and make-up.
James: I’m not that bad, I’m just wondering who I’m going to be against…
Simon: Take them on; don’t let them intimidate you…
Toni: Don’t listen to him; they’re probably in the same position as you, just be nice to them and they’ll be the same with you.



Toni: Being one of the oldest ones on the island, I feel like I should show some comfort to the others…



Toni: You should prepare for the worst because you never know what they’re going to throw at you.
Claire: I wonder if you’ll see Debbie?
Simon: They didn’t last year…
Claire: They said they’d changed it slightly this year though…



James: I don’t know what to expect, but I am ready for anything that’s going to be thrown at me…



Danielle: Good luck babe…
Craig: Cheers…
Kelsey: Do it for the team.



Craig: I’m going to nail this, I know what I’m doing…



Danielle: Oh I could do with a cig now…
Kelsey: I think I’ll join you…



With the contestants ready; the time comes for the immunity challenge to begin…



James: Oh god…what is this?



James: So the first thing I saw was these like...treasure chests...



James: Okay…this doesn’t look too bad…



Craig: Hey…
James: Hi there, I’m James…



Craig: Nice to meet you, I’m Craig.
James: What’s this all about then? (laughs)
Craig: We’re probably going to be lowered into it or something…



James: What’s the other island like?
Craig: It’s great; there’s a pirate ship and there’s water flowing through…
James: Ours are just huts and a small beach area…



Craig: Seeing James was more surreal, I can’t believe there are others living on the island too…it’s odd…



James: I like Craig; the other island seems pretty amazing…



Craig: Let’s read this, shall we?



James:
“Contestants, welcome to your first immunity challenge; in the water in front of you is a large tank…”





James: “You will both be sealed inside the tank and must try and find the loose window to escape. Once you have done this, you must swim to the bottom of the water and find 3 gold items. You must then swim onto the shore and place the items inside one of the treasure chests…”







James: “The gold must be taken one at a time; there are several items in the ocean, some silver and wood; you must not put these in the chest. The person who completes the challenge first will win immunity for their group.”



Craig: Slightly nervous, I’m awful with water…
James: What?! Really?
Craig: Yeah, we randomly picked someone to go and I got it…
James: Ah right, at least it’s something new for you to try though?
Craig: (laughs) Yeah, I guess so.



Craig: I did feel bad saying that to him, but we really don’t want to be the first ones up for the chop, do we?



Craig: We’re going in…



Captain Redbeard: After the 5 second countdown the challenge will begin…



Captain Redbeard: 1….2…3…4…5…GO!



























An extra 07 minutes into the trial and the score stands at:







Craig: Oh my god!



James: Ahh I nearly did it…
Craig: Well done mate…
James: You did well for someone who isn’t good with water (laughs)
Craig: I can’t believe it.



Captain Redbeard:
Congratulations Craig, you have won immunity for The Pirates Island; you may both return to your islands now.



Craig: See you later mate.
James: It’s nice meeting you…



James: I’m sad we didn’t win, Simon’s going to kill me (laughs).



Craig: I’m really pleased that the Pirates are immune; I hope we get chance to celebrate tonight.



As Craig and James return to their islands; while they’ve been gone, the members on the Pirate Island held a meeting to decide what they were going to do about food.



Oscar: I think we really need to sit back and talk about the food situation; we can all behave like adults here…one at time…
Danielle: Can I go first then?
Oscar: What would you like to say Danielle?
Danielle: Well so far we’re living on crisps and sandwiches, so I think it’s fair to say that we do need to take a trip back to the Island store to buy some supplies.



Jonny:
I think, unless we know we have enough money, we need to stop digging into the crisps whenever we want.
Oscar: I think we’re all missing one of the most basic points of this beach; there is a lot of water surrounding us, now I’m not fisherman, but I’m sure some of the fish on this island area edible.



Kelsey: I don’t think I could eat a fish, it would seem wrong.
Oscar: It’s the same as going for Fish and Chips….you are aware of the phrase "survival reality show", aren't you?
Danielle: I don’t think we’d be advised to eat the fish though, we’re not cooks and I don’t think any of us has fished before?
Oscar: Well this is all about trying something new; is it not?



Kelsey: I can’t eat a fish from the ocean, it just feels wrong…



Amanda: I think we should just see what the Island Store has to offer, only start cutting up fishes if we have no other choice.
Jonny: I agree with Amanda.
Oscar: Likewise…
Danielle: So if Craig wins immunity, we’ll get more money to spend, so let’s see what happens when he returns.







Gemma:
He’s back…



Toni: Hello darling, how did it go?
James: It’s not good news guys…
Claire: What happened?



James:
I was in a container under water; we had this countdown and we had to swim to the bottom of the water to find some gold items and put them into a treasure chest that was on the shore…
Toni: Wow, sounds quite challenging…



Simon: I knew I should have gone to the challenge; but I’m not going to make James feel bad about it…



James: I’m sorry guys…
Gemma: Oh don’t be silly…
Jonah: What was the other team member like?
James: He was nice; he said he wasn’t that experienced with water, but he was pretty amazing for someone who wasn’t experienced with water.



Toni: When James told me that the other team member told him he wasn’t great with water, yet turned out to be amazing; I was a little shocked, it hit me what they were doing straight away.



Jonah: They so set that up…
Toni: I was about to say; those guys know what they’re doing…
Jonah: We should sort them out Toni (laughs)
Toni: Fine me their island and I'll go with you (laughs)



Craig: Guys…



Danielle: Oh he’s back…
Amanda: How did it go?
Craig: We’re not going anywhere just yet…



Danielle: YES! Oh my god Craig, you absolute babe!
Amanda: Oh well done Craig.
Jonny: What did you have to do?
Craig: We had to swim to the bottom of the water to find 3 gold items and place them in a treasure chest; I did what you guys said, I made out I was really weak with water (laughs).



Oscar: What was your competitor like?
Craig: To be honest; he was actually really nice (laughs)
Kelsey: Oh well; Pirates VS Civilians and all that…
Danielle: Did you get any money?
Craig: We’re getting some tomorrow morning.



Night Time Falls over the Pearl Islands and as most of the Pirates are tucked in the bed, several of the Civilian contestants stay up for a late night chat…



Claire: I’m actually dreading the voting tomorrow…
Toni: Oh babe, you’re going nowhere.
James: The one thing I thought when I was returning “Simon’s going to kill me” (laughs)
Jonah: He looks like Eminem’s lost brother or something…



Toni: I think he’s had quite a difficult life to be honest, I tried asking him about his mum earlier and he frosted out on me.
Claire: What if she’s…dead or something?
Toni: Well I feel wonderful now (laughs).
James: I think everyone is going to go through the motions on the island though, it’s a difficult time.
Gemma: Yeah; I do think he seems like a strong minded person…



Toni: I think it’s going to be very interesting how we all cope over the next few days, we’re not getting any more money and we’ve not discussed anything…
Jonah: It will be tough; I think voting is on everyone’s minds at the moment though, so no one will be able to properly focus on what’s good for the group.



Toni: These next few days are going to be very interesting….



Claire: I am nervous about the voting; I really don’t want to go first…



James: I think I have more reason to be afraid than any of the others; the fact I failed the challenge could go against me…



Who will the Civilian’s vote for to face the wrath of the public? And with the Pirates currently having the upper hand, will we see a more competitive side to the islanders? Find out tomorrow on Simvivor….
