Who will win Simvivor 2011: Pearl Islands? Find out tonight on Simvivor…



Debbie: Hello and good evening; welcome to the Grand Finale of Simvivor 2011; gosh what a series it has been, we started off with rival islands, the pirates and the Civilians; we’ve had some scary and…scarily dangerous challenges; arguments upon arguments; one removal; potential romances; countless Danielle Gates and last, but not least, Amanda’s genius sense of humor. Well they all reach the head tonight, as either Toni, Amanda, James or Gemma will be crowned your winner.



Debbie: Soon I’ll be revealing 4th place, but shall we take a look at what the contestants got up to in their final day on the island? Brace yourself, there are awards to be given out…




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: When I heard Debbie say my name…I was totally shocked, I’m in the final…wow…it’s a big thing for me…



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: Hearing your name called out…in a good way, was amazing, I had to double check though, I thought she said someone else (laughs).



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…



Gemma: Being told I was in the final was one of the best feelings in the world; I literally nearly burst out crying (laughs).



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…



Toni: When Debbie said Simon’s name, I felt so bad for him, but when I realized that I was in the final…I couldn’t believe it…my excitement has gone from 20% to 100% (laughs).



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.




Amanda: I don’t know what to do with myself now (laughs).
James: Let’s get drunk (laughs).
Amanda: It’s 10am (laughs).
James: So?
Amanda: Ah fuck It, you’re right…



Gemma: I feel like…I’ve got butterflies (laughs).
Toni: Same here, I’m so excited.
Gemma: I don’t even care if I win or not now, I just want to look forward to actually being in the final.
Toni: Well, I know I’m not going to win, but like you said, being in the final is a huge thing in itself.



As nightfall arrives, the contestants have been invited to the Simvivor: Pearl Islands Awards…



Amanda: I think I’m going to wear this dress tomorrow.
Gemma: It looks good on you honey.
Amanda: Aww cheers babe.



Captain Redbeard: Welcome to the official Simvivor: Pearl Islands Awards…
Amanda: Woo!
James: Roll on the booze…
Captain Redbeard: We’re going to kick start with the category for…”Funniest Moment”.
Toni: Amanda’s so won this…

Amanda: I don’t find me funny.
Toni: (laughs).



Captain Redbeard: Here to present this award, please welcome Series One Contestant…Stacey!
Stacey: Hey guys.
Toni: Oh wow, welcome…
Amanda: Hey there.
James: You’re looking beautiful Stacey.
Stacey: Thank you…



Stacey: Okay, the nominee’s for “Funniest Moment” are…



Stacey: ..Amanda, for her bush incident.
Amanda: Don’t even remember that (laughs).
Toni: Bush incident?





Kelsey: (laughs) My eyes are watering…
Craig: Is she crazy, or what?
Danielle: (laughs) Oh my god, I can’t wait to take her out…



Rob: Erm…guys, I need your help…
Kelsey: Why?
Rob: Erm…



Rob: …Amanda’s passed out!




Toni: (laughs) That was hilarious.
Gemma: Amanda…I’m crying here…
Amanda: Ah yeah, I remember that now…
James: I so wish I was there…



Stacey: …James for his speech to Simon…
Gemma: What speech to Simon?!
James: No idea...




James: Ah Simon…
Simon: Oh god…
James: I’ve always liked you…even though…you scare me at times…
Simon: Scare you? I’m the one scared at the moment (laughs).
James: Sometimes…I think you’re amazing…then I feel like you’re going to drown me and hide me body under Amanda’s bed (laughs).
Simon: Well keep your voice down…because they may suspect me…
James: Don’t you worry Simon, my dear, sweet Simon; your secret is safe with me…




James: Oh my god…he never said anything…
Toni: (laughs) He took it pretty well…
James: I should just curl up and die…
Gemma: (laughs) That was hilarious…
James: Shut up Gemma…



Stacey: …and finally, Gemma for her talk with Rob in the Civilian’s Hut.





Rob: So who shared this hut with you?
Gemma: My little James…
Rob: Oh…James…as in…the fit one?
Gemma: Oh get lost you, he’s my little brother…
Rob: Oh, does this mean you wouldn’t mind if he met some hottie or a hunk on the other island?
Gemma: Wouldn’t bother me in the slightest…
Rob: (laughs) Thanks, just wanted to clear that up…



Gemma: Leave him alone, he’s too innocent for you (laughs)
Rob: I’m gonna turn him over to the dark side (laughs)
Gemma: Right, out my hut…(laughs)




Gemma: Oh god, my voice is awful, how do you put up with that?!
James: (laughs)  I can’t believe you were both discussing me.
Gemma: He fancied you, you know that?
James: Yeah, he told me.
Amanda: Rob fancies everyone though...



Stacey: The Winner of the “Funniest Moment” Award…is….



Stacey: …AMANDA!
Amanda: Oh wow, I should get drunk more often…





Amanda: I’d like to thank…the lord…for inventing alcohol; I’d also like to thank my parents for raising me as an alcohol…god bless you…
Toni: (claps) Woo!
Gemma: (wolf whistles)
James: (claps) Congrats Amanda…



Captain Redbeard: The next award is for “Best Argument”; here to present this award, she’s no stranger to arguments, it’s Tania…



Tania: Hey guys.
Amanda: Welcome Tania…
Toni: No stroppy business (laughs).
Tania: None, I promise…
Gemma: You look really different with brown hair.
James: You look really hot (laughs).
Tania: I know, thanks guys.



Tania: So the nominee’s for the “Best Argument” Award are…



Tania: …Toni for her argument with Simon over the shower
Toni: Ah that was a heated one…
Amanda: I thought you were going to kill him, I was scared for his safety (laughs).







Toni: Where am I supposed to wash my fucking clothes then?!
Simon: Don’t shout at me Toni…
Toni: I’ll shout all I bloody well want, who the hell do you think you are…
Simon: Why are you getting so worked up over this?
Toni: Because you’re constantly trying to boss people all the time; you could have waited for me to take the clothes out myself, but instead you’ve scattered them around everywhere…
Simon: If my clothes were in there, you’d take them out too, don’t deny it…
Toni: I’d do what adults do, I’d ask you to take them out, not just take them myself….
Simon: I came down to let you know…
Toni: But you’d already fucking taking them, why are you not grasping this?!



Simon: You’re not my mother Toni, don’t speak to me like that….
Toni: Maybe your mother should have disciplined you when you were younger…
Simon: Right, get the fuck away from the shower now…
Toni: Don’t tell me what to do Simon…you can use the shower when my clothes are clean, okay?
Simon: You bang on about me being bossy, your nose is stuck so far up your own arse, it’s a joke.
Toni: Fine, that’s fine Simon, just carry on being a twat by bossing people around and telling people what to do….
Simon: I’m not telling you what to do, I came to you and said “Toni, I’ve took your clothes out of the shower and put them on the side…”
Toni: They’re scattered all over the fucking floor Simon, you didn’t even fold them or anything, you just threw them out the shower…



Simon: You’ve woke up on the wrong side today, you said so yourself, go and cool off.
Toni: Urgh! Stop telling me what to do…
Simon: I’m giving you advice, you should go and chill out, stop being so uptight…
Toni: (gasps) Are you actually for real?! I’m having one down day and you’re making out like I’m really stuck up and don’t join in with the group…
Simon: Did I actually say that? I said go and chill out and we’ll talk after…
Toni: For once in your fucking life, just shut up, stop having a go at me, let me deal with things on my own.
Simon: I don’t need to shut up, I’ve done nothing wrong, you’re the one who’s flying off the handle…
Toni: I’m flying off the handle because you aren’t respecting anyone’s things, you’ve thrown my clothes, these are my clothes, you’ve thrown them on the floor…



Simon: Toni, go and calm down.
Toni: (screams) Stop telling me what to do!




Toni: (gasps) I look so aggressive…
James: In your defense, you were provoked…
Toni: Yeah…but jesus…



Tania: …Gemma for her argument with Simon..
Gemma: Notice how they’re all with Simon? (laughs)
Amanda: He’s had his fair share of arguments hasn’t he?





Jonah: I hope this won’t be an issue…
Simon: It’s not an issue, but people are making it an issue…
Gemma: With good reason, you forcing yourself to do things is irritating us…
Simon: I said last time I really wanted to do the next one…
Gemma: But you just decided for us all, like you were the leader or something…
Simon: I don’t think I’m the leader, I’m just doing the challenge, Toni said it was alright.





Gemma: Yours was worse Toni (laughs).
Toni: It was to be honest…



Tania: The winner of the “Best Argument” award goes to…



Tania: …TONI!!
Toni: Oh for god’s sake (laughs).





Toni: Erm…thanks for this award, I’m sure my parents will be proud of me (laughs).  Part of this award goes to Simon, he’s the argumentative one out of us all (laughs). Thanks…



As the awards come to an end, there is one last award to be dealt…



Captain Redbeard: …here to present the award is last years winner, Kayley…



Kayley: Hello there people…
James: Oh my god Kayley, I was like…your biggest fan (laughs).
Gemma: I loved you (laughs).
Amanda: Loved?! I love you…
Kayley: (laughs) Thanks guys…



Kayley: The nominee’s for “Saddest Moment” are…



Kayley: …Gemma, for her emotional cry with Amanda and Toni
Gemma: Oh no guys, don’t show it…





Amanda: Maybe you’re just a bit shocked that Rob suggested that?
Gemma: Do you think?
Amanda: Maybe, do you fancy James?
Gemma: No, I don’t…
Amanda: So what’s wrong with you?
Gemma: I don’t know (laughs)
Amanda: Well this is making loads of sense (laughs).



Gemma: (cries) I don’t know what’s wrong with me…
Amanda: Oh no…don’t you start crying on me too, I was trying to make you laugh…



Gemma: (sobs) I’m sorry, I’m not even sad or anything, I don’t know why I’m crying…
Amanda: Let me go and get Antonia…
Gemma: Please don’t tell anyone I’m here, make sure they don’t see you…
Amanda: Just call me double 0 Amanda...




Amanda: Awkward…
Gemma: Just a bit (nervously laughs).



Kayley: …Toni, for her story about her past…
Toni: Oh gosh…
Amanda: You had me in tears with that…





Toni: Yeah, toddlers and some were younger; but because people were so busy caring for their own families those babies were left in the hands of the soldiers evacuating us…
Amanda: Memories like that never leave you, I bet…
Toni: It was losing my friends that hurt me the most, I’d spent 11 years of my life there and I’d got myself some friends, not one of them made it…
Jonny: Where were you when the bombing started?
Toni: I was on my way home from school, I walked with my friends, we were more or less around the corner, next thing we heard gunshots, we turned and right in front of us were armed men, shooting everything they could see, parents and their kids…teachers too…
Rob: Oh my god…
Amanda: What did you do?
Toni: We just ran, we didn’t stick together, we just ran and ran, because we wanted to get home to our parents; it was the last time I ever saw them…



Jonny: Gosh…how did you get through it?
Toni: I was one of the lucky ones, I had my entire family with me; that’s why I’m so grateful for everything my parents have done, they kept our family together when most people would have crumbled…
Amanda: Sometimes it takes something so horrible to pull you together…
Toni: (cries) I just…I owe so much to my parents…I don’t know where I’d be without them…



Amanda: Oh darling, don’t cry…
Toni: (sobs) You see…people with their kids these days…most...they seriously don’t give a shit about them…if my parents had done that with me, I don’t think I would have made it…when your forced into a situation like this, it gives you time to reflect on things and, more so now, I know how amazing they were…
Amanda: Your parents are going to be so proud of you Toni…
Toni: (sobs) I feel proud to say that I’m their daughter, because they’re so amazing…




Kayley: Oh god, even I feel sad after that…
Toni: Sorry Kayley…
Kayley: (laughs) It’s okay Toni…



Kayley: ….James after Edward’s remarks
James: Oh god…not this again…





Jonah: What’s going on over here then?
Gemma: We were just playing X Factor down there and Edward said to him “you’re not going through you bender”, but in a really aggressive way.
Jonah: You’re joking?
Gemma: Wish I was…
Jonah: Are you alright James?



James: (cries) I’m sorry…



Gemma: What are you sorry for?
Jonah: Aww mate, don’t let it get to you.
James: (sobs) I just didn’t want to show that it bothered me…



Toni: What’s the matter James?
Gemma: Edward’s just really insulted him…
Toni: What’s he said; the dickhead…
Gemma: He said “you’re not going through, you bender”.



Toni: He said what?!
James: Look, can we just leave it now because I don’t want to make a big thing….
Toni: No James, we can’t leave it, that’s blatant homophobia…




Kayley: And the winner of the “Saddest Moment” Award is…



Kayley: …TONI!



Toni: That’s four now (laughs).
Amanda: I know, how has she got four and I’ve only got two?





Toni: Erm, thanks for this award, it’s been an emotional time for all of us…so…I’m glad you enjoyed seeing me cry (laughs). Thank you for the award…



James: You okay?
Gemma: Yeah, fine.



As the contestants return to the island; there is a party waiting for them...



Toni: Oh my god…
Amanda: Yes! They did this last year…



James: If we get more drunk I’ll not make tomorrow’s final (laughs).



Amanda: Oh my god…we have jelly…(gasps) and...TURKEY!



James: To us?
Amanda: Yeah…to us…



All: To us!



Amanda: Let’s do speeches…
Toni: Yeah, you go first Amanda…



Amanda: Well, I just want to thank all of you putting up with me for three weeks, I know I’m a bit of a hand full, and I know I have a forceful personality; so thank you so much for not telling me to shut up (laughs).
Gemma: Amanda it would have been boring without you…
Amanda: Thanks Gemma; I’d like to thank the powers that be for giving me this opportunity to come on the show, it’s been amazing and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Toni: Aww you’ve been amazing Amanda.
James: You really have, we love you.



Toni: Okay, I’d like to thank everyone who has taken part in the series this year, Claire, Simon, Danielle, Craig, Oscar, Sarah and all the others; even though we may not have all got on, I’ve enjoyed all their company so much and  together they made this experience as amazing as it is; I’d like to find all my lovely finalists here for coping with my arguments and shenanigans (laughs).
Amanda: There have been a lot, let’s be honest…
Toni: (laughs) Well, thank you, you three are all amazing and whatever happens tomorrow, I wish you all the best for the future and hope we can stay in touch.



James: Woo! Well done Toni!
Gemma: We love you Toni!
Amanda: (chants) Antonia! Antonia! Antonia!



James: Erm…okay, let me start by just saying I’ve had a great time here, it’s been amazing. I’ve loved absolutely everything about it; except when Edward had a go at me…and every time Gemma beat me up, which was harsh, erm…oh and I wanted to do more challenges (laughs).
Amanda: (laughs) Oh James…
Gemma: You loved me holding your nose in your sleep (laughs).
James: So overall, it’s been great, I’ve loved the people here, I think you’ve put some really genuine and lovely contestants on the island this year, and for that, I thank the production team (laughs).
Toni: Yes, thank you Production Team…
James: So, that’s it for now; hope you all stay in touch, because even if you don’t, I’ll stalk you all on twitter (laughs).



Amanda: Woo! That was hilarious!
Gemma: (laughs) You’re such a joker…
James: What, did you expect me to start crying or something?



Gemma: Well…how can I top that? (laughs).
James: (laughs) You can’t…
Gemma: Nah, all the joking aside and all the thanks and what not, I think the one thing that makes this experience so good is the people you spend time with; I’m not going to thank everyone because there are some that actually did get on my nerves; but the people that count will know who they are; I have made some friendships on this show, I know they won’t be broken, I think I have a friend for life in James, he’s been my absolute rock on this show and I don’t know how I would have done it without him…
Amanda: Okay…she topped us all (laughs).
Gemma: And whatever happens tomorrow, I’m proud to say that I was a contestant of Simvivor 2011, because I know that the winner, out of you guys, will be an amazing one.



Toni: Aww that was amazing.
James: Yeah, that was lovely Gemma.
Amanda: Yeah, congratulations Gemma…



Debbie: So, that was the contestants last full day on the island; I found those speeches very moving. The contestants are now all waiting nervously on the island, but before I go and announce who’s finished in Fourth place, I think it’s time to meet the cast of 2011…



Debbie: So first eliminated was Claire; she drove them mad with her demanding antics and many described her as self-centered…let’s talk to her shall we?



Claire: Hey there.
Debbie: So how have you been? I know we saw you the other day…
Claire: I’ve been really good, thank you; everything has been…amazing…
Debbie: Who are you backing to win?
Claire: Gemma or James; they’re both amazing (laughs).
Debbie: Thanks a lot Claire, take your seat up those steps.



Debbie: So next to be eliminated was Oscar; he was most remembered for his rivalry with Team Danielle and of course, his antics with Amanda…



Debbie: So Oscar, how did it feel seeing Amanda again?
Oscar: It was brilliant, she’s an amazing lady.
Debbie: How has the public reception been?
Oscar: Brilliant, some have been really nice, others have been pretty hateful, but it’s okay, I’m the famous one, not them (laughs).
Debbie: (laughs) It’s true; who are you backing to win? Or do I really need to ask?
Oscar: No, you don’t need to ask; it’s Amanda all the way.
Debbie: Thank you Oscar, take your place next to Claire…



Debbie: So next out was a quarter of Team Danielle; it’s Kelsey…



Debbie: Kelsey, how have you been?
Kelsey: Brilliant thank you.
Debbie: I see you’ve kept your tan; you’re looking gorgeous.
Kelsey: Aww thank you Debbie, you always look terrific though.
Debbie: Oh I just throw on what falls out my wardrobe (laughs). So how’s your media career?
Kelsey: It’s been good; done lots of interviews and I’m even looking into starting my own clothing range.
Debbie: Oh wow, that’s brilliant…
Kelsey: Yeah, I’m really happy.
Debbie: Who you backing to win?
Kelsey: Amanda; she’s been genuine throughout.
Debbie: Thank you so much Kelsey…



Debbie: After Kelsey…straight after Kelsey actually, was Danielle; she created a lot of tension amongst the islanders in her last few days, let’s talk to her…



Debbie: Danielle, you are looking amazing.
Danielle: Thank you.
Debbie: So how are you?
Danielle: I’m really well, thank you, sad it’s all ending though, I’m gonna miss being here.
Debbie: I’ll miss having you around; are you and Craig an item?
Danielle: We can officially confirm that we are now a couple (laughs).
Debbie: Oh yay! At least we got one romance out of this series.
Danielle: James and Gemma will get it on, without a shadow of a doubt.
Debbie: Fingers crossed; who are you backing to win?
Danielle: Gemma, I didn’t get chance to meet her but I so wish I did.
Debbie: Thanks a lot Danielle…



Debbie: So they’re now a couple; let’s meet the other half of Danielle – It’s Craig…



Debbie: I’ve just heard the good news…
Craig: It’s true, we got together two days ago…
Debbie: Well you both make a handsome couple; so how’s it been since you left?
Craig: It’s been a blur, everything has been rush, rush, rush.
Debbie: Who are you backing to win?
Craig: Amanda, it’s got to be Amanda…
Debbie: We’ll see; thanks so much Craig…
Craig: No problem…



Debbie: So a few days after Craig left, we had Sarah follow him in the same direction…



Debbie: Hey Sarah; how are you?
Sarah: Brilliant, I’m having such a good time.
Debbie: What have you been up to since you left?
Sarah: Managed to catch up with my fiancée, missed her so much; erm, I’ve done interviews and stuff…
Debbie: I bet you and Simon had a long drink yesterday?
Sarah: Me and Simon were together more or less all day yesterday, he’s lovely.
Debbie: You two were great to watch.
Sarah: Thank you Debbie.
Debbie: Who are you backing to win?
Sarah: I’m going to be a fence sitter and say any of them; they all deserve it.
Debbie: Thank you so much Sarah…



Debbie: So after Sarah was Jonah; his hula dancing was greatly missed…



Debbie: Hey Jonah…
Jonah: Hello pretty lady.
Debbie: So how have you been?
Jonah: Brilliant; really happy with the final today, I couldn’t have picked 4 better people.
Debbie: You would say that about any four left…
Jonah: Ssh, I’m on a role here (laughs).
Debbie: So who do you want to win?
Jonah: I want Toni to win, but I wouldn’t mind if any of them won.
Debbie: Such a nice guy, thanks Jonah…



Debbie: So once Jonah left, hot on his heels was Jonny, Amanda’s second husband of the series…



Debbie: Jonny, I bet it’s been absolute torture being without Amanda?
Jonny: It has; but as she said, my heart will go on.
Debbie: (laughs) So how have you been?
Jonny: I’ve been good, us guys at the hotel have just been enjoying it while it lasts…
Debbie: Have you made friends with Danielle yet?
Jonny: Yeah it’s all in the past, Danielle’s not a bad girl really.
Debbie: So who are you backing to win?
Jonny: Amanda of course.
Debbie: Thanks a lot Jonny…



Debbie: Eliminated in the cruelest fashion was Rob; he thought he was getting a long sleep in, instead, he got awakened to be told he was being eliminated…

Debbie: I feel so guilty…
Rob: (laughs) So you should, I thought we were mates…
Debbie: I’m sorry; how has everything been for you?
Rob: It’s been good, I’ve had the best time.
Debbie: Who are you backing to win?
Rob: Amanda…or…you know what, any of them, any can win, they’re all great.
Debbie: Thanks Rob…



Debbie: So he was eliminated yesterday after just missing out on a place in the final; it’s Simon…



Simon: Hey there…
Debbie: Aww Simon…how are you?
Simon: I’m really good thank you.
Debbie: You’re still relatively new to the eliminated bunch; so I’ll just ask; how has your day with Sarah been?
Simon: It’s been great; we went out and had lunch together yesterday.
Debbie: Aww sounds lovely; who are you backing to win?
Simon: Still Toni; not changed my mind.
Debbie: Thank you so much Simon…



Debbie: So there’s the cast of 2011; look at them all, no matter how much some of have annoyed you, or no matter how many times you’ve laughed with them, they’ve made this series incredible…



Debbie: They’re about to be joined by another person, when I reveal who has finished in Fourth Place; but first, we’re going to catch up with Kayley, who instead of reporting from London, is here in the studio with us…



Debbie: So what’s been going on?
Kayley: Lots, over the last few days everyone’s had banners on the forum with who they want to win.
Debbie: Aww that’s really sweet.
Kayley: Yeah it’s lovely; a special thanks to Sam for making the banners for us.
Debbie: Yeah, thank you Sam.
Kayley: The opinions on who they want to win has been split over the past few days; some are backing Gemma & James, others are backing Amanda and Toni; I think it’ll be an extremely close vote…
Debbie: Who do the forum members think will win?
Kayley: Most think Amanda will win; but you never know, sometimes these shows have a habit of surprising you.
Debbie: Well I know from the voting of the past few days, it’s been very close, it’s not been a landslide (laughs).
Kayley: There’s been some “Jamma” discussions too; most have been begging them to admit their feelings before the final.



Debbie: It’s just not happening…
Kayley: I think they’re just friends, but when you’re in that environment, you can get a bit confused and your thinking is all over the place, so I think they’re best leaving, then have “the  talk” (laughs).
Debbie: Anything else on the discussions front?
Kayley: Not really much else, it’s mostly been the talk of the eliminations, opinions have been different about who should have gone and stayed…
Debbie: So go on, who were people more disappointed by?
Kayley: It’s been really mixed; some were sad to see Jonah go when he did; I think more were upset when Rob left because he was really funny.
Debbie: Who are you backing to win?
Kayley: Oh it’s a tricky one; I love Amanda, she’s been persistent throughout, but I dunno, I’m swinging towards Gemma, but we’ll see.
Debbie: Thank you so much Kayley, you’ve been an absolute treasure this series…
Kayley: Aww thank you Debbie.
Debbie: If you’re not back next year then I’ll put in a complaint (laughs).
Kayley: (laughs) We’ll see…



Debbie: So, the lines have frozen and the vote count is now being read; whilst I head to the island, let’s take a look at the pleas from the contestants…



Gemma: I’d like to win Simvivor because I have had the best time here; it’s actually become escapism, I’ve enjoyed every minute of it and I just know it’s going to open new doors for me.



James: Winning this competition would mean the absolute world to me; I’ve had a brilliant time on the island and I’ve met some people that I know are going to be with me for life.



Toni: The sheer thought of winning actually makes me emotional; it’s such a scary though – I’ve never won anything in my life. It would mean I could finally relax a little and acknowledge the fact that I have made my parents proud; I’m doing this for them.



Amanda: I think if I won Simvivor I’d probably…I can’t even think about it because I’m not 100% sure how I’d react, it’s one of those things where when it happens, you deal with it then and there, you can’t pre-plan it at all. I’ve had the best time here and I actually don’t want it to end (laughs).



Debbie: So that’s their pleas and now we’re about to find out who is finishing in fourth place…



Gemma: Oh god…
Amanda: Here we go…
Debbie: Good morning finalists.
Toni: Morning Debbie, we’re all really nervous.
Debbie: You excited though?
James: Oh god yeah…
Gemma: I’ve got shakes, I’m that excited.



Debbie: So the lines have been frozen as a vote count has taken place, and sadly, I have to pull one of you away; the person finishing in fourth place…is…







Debbie: …TONI!
Toni: (gasps) Oh my god…I’m fourth…
Gemma: Aww you okay Toni?
Toni: Of course I’m fine honey, I’m glad to have gotten this far…
Debbie: Say your goodbye’s Toni…



Toni: Good luck to all of you…
Amanda: You’re going to have a wicked time Toni.



Gemma: Enjoy it, it’s your moment.
Toni: Thanks so much, you guys deserve this so much.



Toni: James, you’ve been amazing.
James: You too; it wouldn’t have been the same without you.



Debbie: So Toni has finished in fourth place; let’s take a look at the contestant’s reaction…



Gemma: Jesus, I can’t breathe (laughs).
Amanda: I thought Toni had a chance at winning.
James: Me too, I was sure she’d get to at least second place.
Gemma: She’s gonna nail the interview though.
Amanda: Yeah, she’ll be fabulous.



Debbie: Big Congratulations to Toni on finishing fourth; how are you feeling?
Toni: I’m good; it’s been a rollercoaster of a ride (laughs).
Debbie: So you’re not disappointed?
Toni: Oh god no, I’m grateful to even be in the final.
Debbie: You did well really; what did getting to the final mean to you?
Toni: Oh it meant the world to me; I can finally say that I’ve…achieved something that my parents could be proud of.
Debbie: I’m sure they’re very, very proud of you Toni, you’ve been amazing.
Toni: Thank you so much.
Debbie: Talk me through your journey; what’s been a personal highlight for you?
Toni: Spending time with such amazing people; all the people involved with this series had amazing qualities; even the people I didn’t get on with, it’s been a real journey.
Debbie: You and Jonah had some funny times together…
Toni: (laughs) Jonah is amazing, I know I’ll stay in touch with him when the show is over.
Debbie: What was your lowest point?
Toni: Erm, I think one of my alltime low’s was when I argued with Simon over the clothes in the shower…I felt so down that day.
Debbie: It’s safe to say, you and Simon argued a lot (laughs).



Toni: (laughs) Just a bit; he totally gets me though, that’s why we clash, we understand each other quite a bit.
Debbie: One minute it was about the challenges, then it was about the food and alcohol, then it was about clothes (laughs).
Toni: (laughs) Yeah, we argued the most this year.
Debbie: Did you ever feel you went too far in the arguments?
Toni: Only in the shower one; but I was having an off day anyway.
Debbie: Which island did you prefer; Civilian’s or Pirates?
Toni: Oh gosh…I think I enjoyed the home comforts on the Civilian’s island; but Amanda was on the Pirates Island…so…
Debbie: She is amazing, isn’t she?
Toni: Oh yeah, she’s brilliant.
Debbie: So what’s next for you?
Toni: I have no idea, I hope I can settle back into my art career and try and get myself more recognized as an artist.
Debbie: Well I wish you all the best with that, I’m sure you’ll get more recognition now…
Toni: I hope so.
Debbie: Who are you backing to win?
Toni: Erm…Amanda; they’re all great, but Amanda all the way.
Debbie: Thank you so much for taking part Toni, you’ve been an incredible contestant.
Toni: Thanks for having me.



Debbie: So Toni is in fourth place, and in a short moment I’m going to reveal who has finished in third place; but let’s take a look at what the finalists described as their favourite moment on the island…



Amanda: I’d say my all-time favourite moment on the island was on the first day, when me and Oscar couldn’t be bothered with all the walking (laughs). We had some hilarious times together me and that old guy…



Gemma: My personal Island highlight was when me and Rob started that water balloon fight; it was so funny, Amanda’s face when she got soaked was one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time.



James: I’d say my personal highlight was all the great nights when we all got drunk; the antics we all got up to was hilarious. I’ve enjoyed the late night chats with Gemma; she’s made this amazing for me…



Debbie: So that’s their favourite moments; shall we find out who’s finished in third place?



Debbie: Hello there contestants.
Amanda: Oh gosh…
James: We’re ready Debbie!



Debbie: So as you all know, the time has come to reveal who is in third place; I can now officially reveal…that the contestant finishing in 3rd place…is…





James: It’s going to be me…
Gemma: Ssh! No it’s not.



James: Say me! (laughs).



Debbie: …JAMES!
James: (laughs) I knew it.
Gemma: (gasps) What?!
Amanda: Are you kidding me?
Debbie: Say your goodbyes James…



James: You two so deserve this.
Amanda: I…I can’t believe this…
Gemma: This is messed up (laughs).



James: You’ve both been amazing and I really mean that, you both deserve this so much.
Gemma: James I thought you’d win (laughs).
Amanda: Oh god…James…
James: (laughs) You’ve done brilliant…both of you have.



James: See you in about 10 minutes (laughs).
Gemma: Bye James; love you babe.
James: Love you too Gemma.
Amanda: I love you more James.



Debbie: “Love You babe”?! I have some grilling to do; but how are Gemma and Amanda coping with the news?



Gemma: Can you believe this?! I mean, I knew you’d be here…but I was sure I’d get third or fourth.
Amanda: Well I feel the same as you, only it’s the other way round. (laughs)
Gemma: I need a drink…
Amanda: Oh god yeah, they need to give us something now (laughs).



Debbie: Congratulations on coming Third James, how are you feeling?
James: I’m absolutely buzzing at the moment, I can’t believe it.
Debbie: You really didn’t expect third place, did you?
James: I didn’t expect to be in the final, let alone third place, it’s amazing.
Debbie: It was incredibly close between you and one of those two left…
James: Really?
Debbie: Yeah, literally two votes away.
James: Wow that is close.
Debbie: You have been on a bit of journey this series; you were like…the boy next door when you entered and now we’ve turned you into an alcoholic (laughs).
James: (laughs) Yes, you have…
Debbie: You are hilarious when you’re drunk though…
James: I think I’m superman (laughs).
Debbie: Or you attempt to find Nemo…
James: (laughs) I think everyone made that up, I don’t even remember it.
Debbie: You didn’t remember your chat to Simon either…
James: Oh god…please don’t (laughs).



Debbie: Are you always like that with alcohol?
James: Not that I know of (laughs).
Debbie: Now, I want to talk to you about a certain girl on that island.
James: Amanda? (laughs).
Debbie: No silly, I mean Gemma.
James: Ah she’s great.
Debbie: Talk me through your friendship; what do you like about her?
James: She’s like the female version of me; she’s so fun and bubbly; aside from all the gothic stuff, we have a lot in common (laughs).
Debbie: Answer me truthfully here; do you fancy her?
James: No, we’re just very close friends.
Debbie: I don’t believe you.
James: Honestly…
Debbie: Don’t like to me James…
James: (laughs) No honestly, there’s nothing else there…
Debbie: Rubbish! Anyway, what was your lowest point on the island?
James: All that stuff with Edward was really hard to go through, I feel guilty for getting him removed, but it brought a lot of memories back from when I was younger.
Debbie: I think you handled it really well, keep in mind he had an issue with you before as well…



James: Yeah, he just disliked me for no reason.
Debbie: Yeah, well he’s not even here today, so he’s long gone.
James: I did feel bad for him though, I mean, he may be used to saying it or something…
Debbie: If you could sum up your experience in one word, what word would you use?
James: Amazing; sorry it’s really original (laughs). I can’t think of anything else.
Debbie: Well…you’ve been amazing James; you’ve been a huge part of this series, thank you so much for taking part.
James: No problem.



Debbie: So, James is gone and now it’s down to the final reveal; who has won Simvivor 2011? We’re about to find out; but as I make my way back to the beach, shall we take a look at who Amanda and Gemma predicted would win the series?



Gemma: Who do I think will win? It’s got to be James, he’s amazing; he’s the full package; he’s been hilariously funny with his alcohol business; he’s very good looking and most of all, he cares about people – I can see him winning over all of us.



Amanda: I think Gemma will win; she’s got so many brilliant qualities to her – she doesn’t judge anyone, she just tries to please people in the best way she can. Her relationship with James has been very, very cute and I think she’d be a great winner…but if you’re still not convinced, you can always vote me (laughs).



Debbie: (laughs) Amanda is so class; so…it all comes down to this moment; Gemma or Amanda, who is your winner? We’re about to find out…



Debbie: Hello you two.
Gemma: Oh Debbie, thank god you’re here.
Amanda: We’re so nervous waiting for you here.
Debbie: Well it I’m here now (laughs).



Debbie: So, Amanda and Gemma, the public have been voting for who they’d like to win this series; 28 days you guys have been on this island, and it’s been a right journey (laughs)…
Amanda: You can say that again.
Gemma: Too right (laughs).
Debbie: Well…it’s not time for me to say; the winner of Simvivor 2011….is….
