SurvivorPQB down to two castaways

Readers vote for their favourites and are eligible to win $250 in groceries

Wendy Sears has had her torch extinguished after this week’s Tribal Council on Ballenas Island. Voting at Tribal Council was not as close as in past weeks. It would appear that the two remaining Castaway supporters combined their efforts to send Wendy to the launch on the beach.

Comments from our readers on how they voted included: “Cuz I would like to see woman vs man in the final!”, “Simply supporting a different charity.”,“They are all good causes but someone’s gotta go.”, “Love this game.”

“Sorry Wendy. Thats just what us north enders have to do.”, “Cuz I’m rooting for underdog now!”

Make sure you vote to keep your favorite Castaway in the game (and on the Island)! This week’s vote will be the last.

The last remaining castaway will win $500 for their favorite charity or betterment project, and one reader who has cast a vote will win a $250 Grocery Gift Card!

The two remaining castaways are: George Lenz, carpenter and Deep Bay Fire Department Fire Chief; and Michele Genereux, long time volunteer for Fire & Ice and Kiwanis Village, Qualicum Beach.

Voting takes place online at PQBNews.com/Contests/. Like the TV version of Survivor, each week the Castaways have been 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 decisions will be made by the “Tribal Council” at the PQB News and will be final.

This is the second time the Survivor Game has been staged by the Parksville Qualicum Beach News. In 2017, Betsey Poel of Bowser was the winner of Survivor — Lasqueti Island, snagging $500 for her favorite charity, Arrowsmith Search and Rescue.
