This past weekend, sixteen friends and strangers gathered on the beaches of Malibu just outside of Malibu, California to compete in OUTLAST (our game based on Survivor).

None of our contestants knew quite what to expect (all of them were new to Reality Rush), but within hours of arriving, they found themselves sleeping in improvised survival shelters, trying to start fires, and bonding with their tribes, just off of the Pacific coast!

The two tribes, Baku (blue) and Tamba (orange) competed in a series of reward and immunity challenges — but it was Tamba who dominated the game. The orange tribe ended up winning EVERY immunity challenge before the merge, and Baku was forced to go to tribal council six times in a row! Even a tribal swap twist before the fourth tribal council did not turn things around for Baku, (though it did allow the original Baku members who stayed on the tribe to eliminate two of the original Tamba members who were swapped onto their tribe.)

Despite their dominance in the first half of the game, the Tamba tribe was fractured after the merge, and split their votes at tribal council. Baku, on the other hand, played more strategically (they were tribal council veterans compared to the inexperienced Tamba members!). Baku’s strong voting bloc made up of Alvaro, Ryan and Matt carefully outplayed and eliminated all the other players, until they made it into the final three! After a hard-fought game, Matt Dorsey narrowly defeated runner-up Ryan Sweeney in the 4-3 jury vote at the final tribal council. Congratulations Matt for winning Outlast: Malibu!
