Sarah is officially the worst individual competitor in the history of Survivor with 0/21 Individual immunity wins. She successfully surpassed Cirie's previous 0/20 record by losing the final immunity. Congratulations Sarah Lacina. You wrote history.
It's not implied,there is no hint nor is there any proof that he could have been responsible even if he wanted to.He was a young child when she died and there were serveral other Elders after Sarah.
He became Elder at least 6 years after she died and I doubt that a 9 or 10 year old plotted the death of an elite soldier that he admired:
>I really don't know if I'll ever get home. But, well... I kind of like it here. Sentinel Lyons has been very kind to me. She's taught me so much.
Oh hey, she’s finallllyyyy getting called out for being a racist. Don’t worry, she’ll still share some pics of epilepsy inducing neon color combos of omg Lilly, strip malls, fried food and probably a Jesus meme.
-Going into the game, Tony and Sarah thought they were disadvantaged because they are both overall pretty disconnected from the survivor community, and don’t go to events.
-Tony and Sarah had a really strong bond outside of the game that neither was going to break, and pregame they agreed to look out for each other.
-Says she would lose to tony in a final 2, but could have potentially beaten tony in a final 3 with the right person sitting next to them. Sarah says she had really strong social bonds with a lot of people. Says she for sure would have had the votes of Ben and Denise if she was in a jury vote against tony. Sarah was very close with ben and Denise.
-Sarah says if the final 3 was herself, Tony and Natalie, that she and tony would have split votes, and it’s possible Natalie could have won in a three way split vote.
-Sarah says her speech about women not getting enough credit was totally her playing to the jury. She’s been on a jury before, and she knows that when jurors w... keep reading on reddit ➡
Considering Lacina would’ve had a very good chance at winning WaW if she beat Tony in that fire making challenge, and thus become only the second two time winner, (even helping vote out the only other two time winner), shouldn’t she be considering one of the all time best players up there with Tony, Boston Rob, Sandra, Parvarti etc?
Especially considering both of her best games where in returnees seasons, and her first season, where she didn’t go as far, was in a season that is considered one of the best all newbies seasons.
Parvati was a guest on this week's Las Culturistas podcast and had this to say about how Sarah was perceived on the Edge:
"When Sophie and Kim came back from the game they were the ones saying Sarah is really putting it on. She says all these things like she's trying to create a bond with us and she's using really deeply personal things to connect with us and it feels icky...So they came back and they were the ones saying it wasn't about Tony being the mastermind it was about Sarah kind of exploiting a more human connection that they felt was off-limits. That's why they didn't want to vote for Sarah.
I didn't meet Sarah in the game at all, I didn't feel any way about Sarah. And you know how I feel about girl power...if she showed up and was like, I've been working with Tony this whole time and now I'm going to blindside Ben or whoever, or vote out Tony...Like why didn't she blindside Tony and vote him out? She could've won."
Tony and Sandra were the only people she pregamed with. Also said that there was someone who pregamed with 10 people but wouldn't mention who. Tony and Sarah promised they would take each other to the end because they weren't active in the survivor community like others were.
Talked about fire tokens and how they didn't know that the fire tokens were going to those on the edge. Players in the game thought they were going to "The Bank" aka production.
Sarah talked in depth about her sneaking into the other camp for the steal a vote advantage. This part is hilarious because when she told Tony she would have to sneak into another camp he would freak out at the thought of her being caught and wouldn't let her finish talking. At night time everyone would go on the beach and then Tony randomly got up and told everyone to go to bed lol. Everyone was going to sleep while Tony was keeping an eye on everyone while he was standing with a huge walking stick and would poke Sarah multiple times t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'd like to know your opinion about the subject. I won't say what I think about it right now, I just wanna know what's the general consensus on the way he "gave" Sarah his whole game.
Edit: okay what why is this being downvoted I literally just asked a question (???)
I am Sarah Ketchen Lipson, assistant professor in the Department of Health Law Policy and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health.
My research focuses on understanding and addressing mental health in adolescent and young adult populations, especially college students. The traditional college years (ages 18-24) are a vulnerable period for mental health as this time directly coincides with age of onset for lifetime mental illnesses. College is also one of the only times when many of the main aspects of a person’s life are contained within a single institution. This presents an opportunity to identify and support students through prevention, early intervention, and treatment. For almost 10 years now, I’ve been conducting public health research to understand and address rising prevalence rates of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, suicidality, and other mental health concerns on campus. There is a lot to think about with regard to student mental health in the cont... keep reading on reddit ➡
Link to announcement: https://news.ubisoft.com/en-us/article/12nFvpgMd9CPBeRopB21aY/assassins-creed-valhalla-composers-and-songwriter-revealed
“Music has always been a crucial element in any Assassin’s Creed game, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be no different. Accompanying you on your journey through Dark Age England will be the music of composers Jesper Kyd (Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood) and Sarah Schachner (Assassin’s Creed Origins). Joining these series veterans will be Norwegian musician Einar Selvik, who will create original songs for the soundtrack.
A BAFTA award-winning Danish composer, Jesper Kyd composed the soundtrack for the original Assassin’s Creed, as well as for the entire Ezio trilogy. If you’ve ever found yourself listening to any version of “Ezio’s Family,” one of the franchise’s most enduring themes, you have Kyd to thank for it. His most recent composing credits include Borderlands 3, State of Decay 2, and Warhammer: Vermintide 2.

Helen should have been the star.
She actually went through a pretty good character arc.
I especially love the part when she finally stood up to her snobby sister. "Just do what I say God damn it!"
Her performance throughout her chase scene was final girl worthy until the very last second. It was so frustrating when she didn't make it.
Julie's a pretty weak character, a cheap ass Sidney-wannabe. And Jennifer Love Hewitt's performance was average at best.
Sidenote: Even though he was a prick, I would have liked it better if Barry survived instead of Ray and Freddie Prinze's wooden ass acting.
Google translate translation:"A selected soundtrack of the game with music by the renowned composers Jesper Kyd, Sarah Schachner and Einar Selvik "
AC Games Composed by Jesper Kyd
AC Games Composed by Sarah Schachner
Einar Selvik is new to the franchise, but is known for his work on the "Vikings" TV show.
I mentioned it once a couple of years ago and got downvoted to hell. I love Ellie but always felt the Last of Us was essentially Joel's story. Am I really the only one who has always felt this way?
Our best sellers are single cigarettes!
Last season they really gave her a very generous edit. Like to the point where I was actually rooting for this trash bag. Miss “I got divorce papers I got a custody lawyer Michael is trash” and in reality she sending him money, having sex with him, letting him parade in and out of her children’s lives. She legit was using those kids as leverage to keep this bumass around. She can post all her #strongwoman bullshit she wants whilst hocking diarrhea tea on instagram, but I’m totally disillusioned. In reality she deserves Michael and those kids deserve better than both of them. She’s just teaching her young, impressionable daughters that men treating women like disposable objects is totally normal and fine. I have no respect for her. She’s gross.
Whereas with Michael I knew exactly what to expect. There was no surprise there, Sarah really finessed this whole fake narrative that she was done with Michael’s bullshit, to me that’s Even worse.
Just finished watching This Year’s Girl/Who Are You? for the first time and Sarah and Eliza were so amazing at playing each other’s character that when I was watching I saw Faith (Eliza) when she was inside Buffy’s (Sarah’s) body and vice versa. They had EVERY single detail down. These two actresses delivered and honestly deserve Emmy awards for their performances in these episodes.
Interesting tidbit from Adam’s RHAP interview:
Adam said Rob told him point blank that he will vote for Sarah to win if she beats Tony at fire.
If that’s the case, then the perception by some that Rob was bitter at Sarah is probably a bit overstated. At the very least, he was not going to vote bitter.
