Tonight, here on Simvivor…



Debbie: Hello and welcome to the 10th, and most importantly, the final elimination of Simvivor 2011. Can you believe it’s our last one, that’s so sad; tonight we’re going to be saying farewell to either, Amanda, Gemma, James, Toni or Simon. Who won’t be here tomorrow? Well that decisions is firmly down to you…



Debbie: So yesterday we saw Rob eliminated in one of the cruelest possible ways; shall we take a look at what happened afterwards?





Voice: Contestants, sorry to wake you, can one of you head to the tree mail box.
Toni: (yawns) I’ll go…



Toni: (yawns) You guys could have picked a morning when we’re all awake…





Toni: (reads) Oh my god…



Toni: Everyone needs to get up…
Amanda: Oh what?!
Toni: No guys…you need to get up…
Gemma: What’s up Toni?
Toni: It’s so bad…



Gemma: How’s your head?
James: Don’t speak to me…
Gemma: (laughs) Alcoholic…



Toni: Right; “Morning Contestants; Amanda, Simon and James can relax, they’re immune from elimination and will not be eliminated today…”
Simon: (gasps) I fucking knew it…
Rob: Oh how can they do this to us?!
Gemma: I’m not even dressed…



Debbie: “Hello islanders…
Gemma: Oh please don’t do this…I’m not dressed…



Rob: So it’s between…
Toni: Me, you and Gemma…
Debbie: “The Ninth contestant to be eliminated from Simvivor…is…



Amanda: Let’s gather round…
Gemma: I’m not even dressed…



Debbie: …ROB!
Rob: (sighs) Ah damn…
Toni: Oh Rob, I’m so sorry…
Simon: I can’t believe they’ve done that…
Rob: Can I get changed, or what?
Debbie: Say your goodbyes Rob



James: That’s so cruel…
Gemma: Come here Rob, I’m so sorry…
Rob: Don’t be sorry, I’m fine…



Rob: Amanda you legend, I’m so going to miss you…
Amanda: Things won’t be the same without you Robert…



Rob: James, I want a cuddle of you (laughs).
James: Good luck with everything…
Rob: You too, go back to bed (laughs).




Toni: I so thought I was gone then…
Gemma: Me too (laughs).
Toni: What a harsh thing to do though…
Simon: That’s the cruelest they’ve been throughout the entire series…



James: I feel like death…
Amanda: Go to bed then…
Voice: Enjoy your sleep in, contestants…



Toni: You twats (laughs).



As the elimination passes, most of the contestants are asleep; however, Toni and Simon are discussing the events that have just taken place…



Toni: I’m still totally shocked; I thought I was going then…
Simon: I think it was cruel, poor Rob…
Toni: It still doesn’t feel like he’s gone...it feels like he’s just…doing a challenge or something…
Simon: I’m not gonna feel bad about it though, we’re all gonna go over the next few days…
Toni: Yeah, that’s true, I guess…
Simon: I think its James and Gemma win anyway…
Toni: Oh I’ve said that, it’s between those two…
Simon: Amanda’s great too, she’s in with a chance…
Toni: I think me and you are next to go…
Simon: Yeah, for sure…



As dinnertime arrives, the contestants receive three more letters from home…



Amanda: First one is for Toni…
Toni: Oh boy…better brace myself…
Amanda: “Hey Antonia, surprise, surprise, you’ve spent most of the series worrying about your hair…”
Toni: (laughs) My mum said I would…
Amanda: “Everyone is rooting for you, and it’s weird because people recognize us in the street, even though we’re not on TV. You’re doing brilliantly, standing up for what you believe in is exactly you and we couldn’t be more proud of you. Hang on in there, you never know, you may end up winning! Kiss Kiss, love mum and dad.”



Simon: He come on, you promised you wouldn’t cry…
Toni: I’m sorry…let me snap out of it…
Amanda: Go and get a tissue from the toilet Toni…
James: Come on, I’ll come with you…



Gemma: Aww getting a letter meant a lot to her…
Simon: I think it’s knowing her family are proud of her, that’s what she wanted…



Toni: I really didn’t want to cry…
James: Oh don’t worry about it, I was an emotional wreck yesterday…
Toni: It’s just…getting that letter…means that after all they’ve done for me, they’re proud of me…
James: Of course they’re proud of you Toni, you’re their daughter, no matter what you do, they’ll be proud of you…
Toni: But actually…hearing those words…even through a letter means so much…
James: Yeah, I felt the same yesterday.
Toni: Let’s get back to them anyway, there’s other letters to be read out…



Amanda: Okay Toni?
Toni: Yeah, fine, sorry guys…
Gemma: It’s alright Toni…



James: Okay, the next letter is for Simon…
Simon: Oh cool…
James: “Well what do you know, my annoying little brother is now famous; this probably means he’ll expect me to run around for him more now…
Simon: (laughs) What a dick…
James: “In all seriousness bro, keep up what you’re doing because me, Paul, Michael and Julie are absolutely loving watching you keeping everyone on their toes; you’re just like you are at home, you’ll come in for breakfast and you have to watch how you prepare you cereal, because if you slam the bowl – bad temper day; if you gently make it – good mood day…”
Toni: (laughs) If only we had some cereal to look for the signs…
Amanda: I know, we could have done with a warning sign…



James: “Keep out of trouble and we’ll see you at the finish line; peace out, your big brother.
Simon: Aw, thanks mate…
Toni: I bet he’s really missing you….
Simon: He’ll be happy to see me go to be honest (laughs).
Toni: Brothers always pretend they don’t care, but I bet he’s secretly missing your company…
Gemma: Yeah, siblings are like that…not that I have any (laughs).



Toni: Okay Gemma…you ready?
Gemma: Yeah, I’m ready…
Toni: “Is that our Gemma on TV? It can’t be…surely…oh gosh…it is our Gemma on TV’, were your nans words when she saw you at the Premiere of Simvivor…
Gemma: (laughs)
Amanda: (laughs) What a legend…
Toni: “She’s missing your weekend shopping spree’s and has been telling her friends at bingo to vote you out so she can have you back…
Simon: (laughs)
James: Awww
Gemma: Nan you’re dead…
Toni: “Everyone is being really supportive and we’re backing you 100%. You are after all, our little Princess Gemma, and the house has been really quiet without you; oh, your dad decided to paint your bedroom pink…



Toni: “…Seen as he doesn’t think black suits you…
Gemma: (gasps) No way….



Toni: “Keep doing what you’re doing; you’re flawless – good luck Princess Gemma…”
Gemma: Aww that was lovely…
James: I so want to meet your nan…
Amanda: Me too, she sounds like a right laugh…
Gemma: She looks loads like me (laughs).
Amanda: Aww, Gemma’s nan to win (laughs).
Gemma: Hello, she was asking her friends to vote me out (laughs).



Gemma: The letters were amazing today, they really cheered me up, knowing you’ve got support from your family is one of the best feelings in the world…



Simon: I feel like I can carry on to the finish line now, knowing my brother and mates are behind me is a great feeling.



As evening arrives, the contestants start reminiscing about their past three weeks on the island…



Amanda: Jesus, me and Oscar being knackered from all the walking on the first day seems ages ago now…
Toni: You’re the only pirate left Amanda (laughs).
Amanda: (laughs) I know…good, I was the best…
Gemma: Remember when I had that argument with you when Claire left, Simon?
Simon: Yeah, because I went to the challenge instead of Toni (laughs).
Toni: Oh god…even the challenges seem ages ago now…
Amanda: I never did one until we merged (laughs).
James: I remember Craig’s “Oh, I’m a rubbish swimmer” line…
Amanda: Do you know something; he said that on purpose, Kelsey told him to (laughs).
Toni: I bloody knew it…



Simon: How devious of him…
Amanda: In his defense, he did feel bad about it…
James: So he should, I wasn’t exactly fierce competition now was I? (laughs)
Gemma: I think you’re fiercer than him though James…so maybe?
James: (laughs) Aww thanks Gemma…
Simon: I kinda miss my little Civilian hut…
Toni: Ah me too, I loved sharing with Jonah, we’d stay up all night chatting (laughs).
Gemma: So did me and James, we were right nighthawks.
Amanda: Let’s talk about something I can join in on (laughs).
Gemma: Seriously, if Amanda was on the Civilian Island it would have made it perfect.
Amanda: Aw thanks Gemma.
Toni: Yeah, us all being together now is like the highlight though…



James: Yeah, I think the best bunch stayed until the end, I loved everyone, but us guys have kinda stuck together really.
Simon: Even though we argued…
Toni: (laughs) But to be honest Simon, I feel quite a close bond with you because of it; we are both quite argumentative, but we were mature enough to sort out our differences…
Simon: Yeah, you’ve been one of my closest friends on the Island Toni.



Toni: Aww come here you…



Amanda: Group hug…group hug…



Night time arrives and whilst the rest of the contestants are in bed, two of them have been pacing along the beach for 2 hours…



James: We better stay in touch after this Gemma…
Gemma: Oh we will, as soon as it all ends we’ll have to exchange numbers.
James: You don’t live that far from me, so it may be easy to keep in touch.
Gemma: Even if you lived miles away, I’d catch the train.
James: Yeah, I probably would too…
Gemma: I am going to miss it here though, we’ve like…been living together for three weeks, this has been my little bubble…



James: Yeah, same here, it’s like a holiday; I don’t want to go back (laughs).
Gemma: (laughs) Yeah, I just want to say though, to you personally…erm…thanks for making my time here so amazing, I don’t think it would have been half as good if you weren’t here…



James: Aww Gemma, you don’t need to thank me; it should be me thanking you; I’ve had the best time here, it’s been amazing…
Gemma: I love the others, but I really think my time here wouldn’t have been half as good if you weren’t here.
James: Well we should just go on a holiday when we leave…
Gemma: (laughs) Yeah, just disappear on another holiday, my nan would actually track us down and kill us…
James: I can forgive your nan, she’s a legend…
Gemma: I bloody can’t…



Debbie: Just kiss dammit (laughs). I thought she was going to say how she felt then…disappointed; anyway, the lines have no frozen, let’s find out who’s not made it to the final…



Debbie: Hey everyone…
Amanda: No nasty surprises then?
Debbie: (laughs) I’ve aplogised to Rob, so leave it…
Amanda: You think I’m on about Rob?! What about me? I was looking forward to a sleep in, told my legs they could shut down for a while…
Debbie: (laughs) Sorry Amanda…



Debbie: So the public, like the previous days, have been voting for who they want to save from elimination; the people who make it through today will be in the tomorrow’s final…so…the first person to have made it through to the Simvivor Finale…is….





Debbie: …JAMES!
James: (gasps) No way….
Debbie: Congratulations James.



James: Oh my god…
Gemma: Come here you.
Toni: Congratulations James.
Simon: Well done mate.
James: I…I can’t believe it (laughs).
Debbie: The second person to have made it through to tomorrow’s finale…is…



Debbie: …AMANDA!



Amanda: Aww well done Aman…wait…what?!
Gemma: Congratulations honey…
Amanda: I’m in the final; shocked hair again…



Amanda: Amanda’s in the final! Amanda’s in the final!
Toni: (laughs) Well done darling.
Debbie: The Third person who has made it through to the final…is..





Debbie: …GEMMA!
Gemma: Oh my god!



James: I told you, see, I told you.
Debbie: Congratulations Gemma.
Gemma: I can’t believe it…



Debbie: This means that either Toni or Simon are saying goodbye to the island; the 10th person to be eliminated from Simvivor…is…







Debbie: …SIMON!
Simon: Ah that’s fine…
Toni: (gasps) Are you kidding me?
Debbie: Say your goodbye’s Simon…



Simon: Give me a hug Toni…
Toni: Simon…I’m so sorry.
Simon: Oh don’t be silly, you deserve this, you all do; you’ve done your family proud Toni.



Simon: Listen guys, just enjoy today, it’s the last day you’ll ever have here.
Gemma: Simon, you’ve been absolutely amazing…
Simon: You too Gemma, don’t ever change, because you’re an amazing girl.



Simon: Take care of Gemma, James (laughs).
James: (laughs) I will try; have fun…
Simon: Don’t get too drunk again.



Simon: Come on Amanda…
Amanda: Simon you’ve been a hero…



Amanda: Only joking, you’ve been a pain, but I love you for it (laughs).
Simon: (laughs) I love your honesty.
Amanda: (giggles) Me too..



Simon: Bye everyone…
All: See Ya Simon…



Debbie: So we have our finalists; Simon is no more, let’s take a look at how they’ve reacted to his departure.



Amanda: I’m so happy…
Gemma: I can’t believe we’re in the final!
Toni: I’ve got the nervous shakes (laughs).
James: I’m so excited about tomorrow now, it could go anyway…
Gemma: I wouldn’t mind any of you winning, all of you are amazing.
Amanda: Aww thanks, wouldn’t choose three other people to be here with.



Debbie: Ah Simon, you was so close to making the finish line, are you a little bit gutted?
Simon: I did want to get to the final, but I’m happy I lost out to those guys, they’re all great people.
Debbie: You did so well though, I mean, you were in the top 5, that’s not a bad place…
Simon: Oh god no, I’m really happy with how far I got; I could have gone during the first elimination.
Debbie: Now, let’s talk about the many sides of Simon…
Simon: The many sides? (laughs)
Debbie: I think you’ve been one of the most flexible contestants we’ve had on Simvivor; you can just turn and be the nicest person in the world one minute; then you’re arguing with them the next.
Simon: (laughs) I’ve got a temper; I did try and control it all times, but sometimes I just have to explode.
Debbie: You and Toni had some huge slanging matches…
Simon: I think she’s like me, she’s quite argumentative and stands up for what she believes in.
Debbie: Did you ever argue with her to provoke a reaction out of her?
Simon: Nah, that’s just pointless and stupid; I didn’t argue unless there was something worth arguing for…



Debbie: Erm, you argued over her clothes being in the shower (laughs).
Simon: I didn’t, she went off on one, so I tried to back away from her…
Debbie: You did throw her clothes on the floor though…
Simon: Yeah, I shouldn’t have done that, I know that now; but I never did to provoke her.
Debbie: One of my favourite moments with you was when you and Rob had that chat the other day; we saw a really lovely side to you.
Simon: I don’t go out of my way to be nasty to people really, with Rob, he was the first person that actually asked me stuff about myself; the others let me speak, then didn’t go no further, but with Rob, he actually asked me personal questions.
Debbie: I think people kinda pull back on personal stuff because they don’t want to offend you…
Simon: Yeah, I figured that was why they never asked me stuff, but Rob did and that’s why I got on really well with him.
Debbie: Another person you got on well with was Sarah; tell me about your friendship.
Simon: She took the time to actually get to know me, she didn’t bother about my past or things I’d done on the island, she just liked me, and it’s very rare you find someone like that.



Debbie: I felt we saw a better side to you when she arrived…
Simon: Yeah, I felt better when she was around.
Debbie: Who are you backing to win?
Simon: You know something, I’m going to back Toni; the others are all lovely, but she has been an absolutely amazing person throughout the series, she stood up for what she believed in, she’s been through so much in her life and I think winning Simvivor would be a great reward for how brilliant she’s been.
Debbie: That was really lovely.
Simon: I mean it…
Debbie: Simon, you’ve been incredible, one of my favourites this year, thanks so much for taking part.
Simon: Thank you Debbie.



Debbie: So, Simon is gone, but the show is about to begin as Toni, Amanda, Gemma and James are now racing to win the show; who is your winner? The poll is open, you can vote for ONE person to be your winner; join me tomorrow for the live final of Simvivor 2011; goodnight.
