I wonder how each season would've turned out if none of the quitters actually decided to quit.
Darrah goes instead of Osten. The tribes merge and Lill flips, voting out Sacage and then Osten. Fairplay, Lill and Burton use Ryno to blindside Rupert, but then Ryno goes. Tijuana, Sandra, and Lill then blindside Burton. Jury takes immunity and the girls would vote for Fairplay. Lill easily wins immunity, and depending on who she takes, Sandra still wins or Tijuana would win.
Steph goes, then Janu goes. Final six plays out as is.
This is where things get tricky, and a lot of speculation happens. Chapera loses immunity as planned, and they vote for Rob. Soboga is more likely to lose immunity in episode 4, and therefore, they boot Ethan. Soboga gets dissolved, and CBS lets Chapera chose a member first for "having less numbers", though this is because CBS would never let Rupert join a tribe where he would easily be picked off. So Chapera would take Rupert gets stuck with Jenna, and so Jerri joins Mogo Mogo. Mogo Mogo loses and Colby gets Hatch blindsided. Mogo Mogo probably keeps losing over and over again, and Jenna is more likely to go. Following her would probably be Jerri & Colby. Then, a tribal switch would probably keep Sue & Amber on Chapera, in which Rob still tries to cut a deal to save save, Amber, and therefore, Sue goes at F10. Merge plays out as is.
Kathy not quitting means she goes to the first-ever eleven-person merge wit her tribe, Erik, Ozzy, Amanda, & Cirie. At this points, she becomes an extra vote to get Eliza out, and then she becomes the necessary vote to take Ozzy, and then Jason out. James get evacuated at 8th place, and Amanda uses her idol to take out Alexis. Erik gives up immunity and still goes. Either Kathy goes out in fifth place, or fourth place, dumped after Natalie, or Amanda/Parvati decide to take her to the final three and dump Cirie, in which Parvati still wins or Cirie wins.
Kelly and NaOnka probably side with Jane, Holly, & Chase to vote for Benry, Fabio, & Dan. Dan might even be spared over Jane. The final five would likely be NaOnka, Kelly, Sash, Holly, & Chase. Holly is easily dumped in this scenario. Given that Jane got Sash disqualified, he likely goes to the final three, and gets third place. Kelly beats NaOnka unanimously, and beats Chase by a 5-4 vote. Chase beats NaOnka unanimously, or NaOnka may get a vote from Kelly.
Dana is probably voted out the same episode she quit anyways, but then Dawson gets voted out and there is room for Katie to make the merge where RC gets blindsided. Then, Jeff probably goes, and then Lisa/Skupin flip to vote for Artis, and then Pete. Abi's immunity would still cost the game for Penner, and Carter probably suffers the same fate before Abi finally goes out. In this final five, Malcolm wins immunity, and Katie will probably go, as Malcolm might consider giving his idol to her, and Skupin/Lisa would just vote for Katie anyways. The final four would play out the same way.
Blood vs. Water:
When Tadhana loses immunity, Colton is probably the one that gets voted out, and he probably loses the Redemption Island duel. The tribe switch would happen, where Laura Morett could still be voted out, where she beats Brad Culpepper in a duel. Then, Kat goes where she and John are eliminated as Laura returns. Aras is then blindsided, and Vytas & Tina follow after, whereas Laura B is a goat for all of this. The thing here is they still have to do another double elimination, so there is only for one Redemption Island duel winner, and as Vytas won the duel, Tina joins the jury instead. Both Laura will probably get voted out, and Laura B loses the Redemption Island duel. The rest of the game probably plays out the same way, but as Tina already joined the jury, Laura returns to the game, where her winning immunity determines if she (or Ciera) goes to the final three and wins or not.
Lindsey decides to stay to vow revenge on her tribe, and as her tribe won immunity, Alexis still goes. This is where Lindsey easily flips, and Trish is voted out as LJ & Tony get bluffed out of their idols. Then, Tony and LJ get voted off, and Woo would soon follow. Jefra is probably last. However, it is unlikely that Kass & Sarah would work together long enough to get rid of four boots, and Kass might even get targeted. Also, Spencer's arrogance would for sure get to him, given he would be in a majority alliance for this long. The final five would possibly include Lindsey, Morgan, Tasha, Jeremiah, & Kass or Sarah. The winner would probably be Kass or Sarah, with a chance for it to be to Tasha, if she saw in the final three with Lindsey & Morgan.
San Juan del Sur:
Jon/Jaclyn vote for Jeremy, and then switch to vote for Josh. Reed goes next, and if Keith had immunity, he uses his idol to save Wes, and Alex goes. Then, Wes & then Keith go, and Missy/Baylor/Natalie/Julie blindside Jon, and then Baylor goes the same way she did. Jaclyn wins immunity where Nat/Missy might vote for Julie, and Natalie still wins or Missy/Julie might vote Natalie, and Jaclyn wins. There is a chance that Natalie spares Keith the same way she did, and Julie goes out at F7, and Natalie would win, playing the same game she did.
