Immunity necklace awarded to Lindsay in ‘Survivor Ballenas Island’

Readers vote for their favourites and are eligible to win a $250 grocery gift card

Ian Lindsay, purveyor of land and homes, has been awarded the only secret immunity necklace available to be played in Survivor Ballenas Island. (The secret word was ‘character’). All castaways are safe this week. However, next week two castaways will find themselves waiting for the launch on the beach when their torches are extinguished.

In week one, Mary Brouliette became the first castaway voted off beautiful Ballenas Island. Tribal Council was very close with only four votes between Mary and the second-place castaway.

Comments from our readers on how and why they voted included “She’s a survivor” and “It’s very difficult to have to vote anyone off given the, charities they are representing!”

The remaining seven castaways are divided into two teams, the Laule’a Clan (Happiness). Dick Stubbs from Bowser, retired from a lifetime of adventures, playing for the Bowser Seniors Housing Society; Lindsay, Steffany Burger, Meadowood Store owner and Olivia Hill, high school teacher at Ballenas.

The ’Ohana Clan (Family) are Donna Andres, business owner, Kim Burden, Parksville Chamber executive director and Walter Hoogland, a builder.

Like the TV version of Survivor, each week the castaways will be required to complete a number of tasks, which requires answering questions. Those who are familiar with Gilligan’s Island and Survivor will recognize the references.

All reader voting takes place online at PQBNews.com/Contests/ over eight weeks. The last castaway will win $500 for the charity of their choice and one reader who cast a ballot will have their name entered in a draw to win one a $250 grocery card.

Readers check the answers each week to see how their favourite castaway is doing, and then vote someone off the island in order to keep their favorite in play. Readers may vote once per day. All decisions will be made by the Tribal Council at the PQB News and will be final.

This is the third time the Survivor game has been staged by the PQB News.

In 2017, Betsey Poel of Bowser was the winner of Survivor Lasqueti Island, snagging $500 for her favourite charity, Arrowsmith Search and Rescue. In 2018, George Lenz won $500 for the Deep Bay Rescue Society.
