Survivor: Camp ChiChi - Final Day

It was the final day of Survivor: Camp ChiChi, and one camper would be forced to leave the camp. There was one final challenge remaining, and a surprise immunity award to be presented later in the day. Alfred and Holly both had one immunity point, and the remaining three campers were growing anxious.

Counselor Sandy announced the final challenge - a snore off! The camper with the loudest snore would win the final immunity point. This posed a challenge for the campers - would they be able to fall asleep to actually get a good snore going? It was pretty early in the day, and they had just awoke from nap #3!

Luckily, the challenge didn't prove all that difficult. Holly drifted off first, followed by Sugar and Emma. Alfred played a round of "chew the butt" and wore himself out, finally dozing into dreamland. After much tossing and turning and licking his paws, Norman joined the four.

The Counselors then took to measuring the snore ratios. Holly put on an impressive show, but nothing compared to Sugar. Then Emma joined in! Emma's snores were so loud that Alfred and Norman couldn't even be heard over her rumbling of air in and out. Emma was clearly the winner.

The Counselors waited for the Pugs to awaken and delivered the good news to Emma.

Sugar and Norman were the only two Pugs up for elimination from the Camp. The "surprise" immunity point might make all the difference to one of these Pugs.

Norman needed a drink to take the edge off.

The Campers waited around all day to find out about this surprise immunity award, when finally there was a knock on the door. Perhaps it was the mailman delivering the immunity award. The Pugs erupted into a frenzy, spinning this way and that, barking up into the sky declaring their excitement! Counselor Sandy opened the door to find Norman's People on the other side.

Norman exploded with joy, knowing for sure that his Woman would award him the immunity point. Sugar warned Norman not to be so sure of himself, and that his Woman may be here to take him back home to the mountains.

The Pugs suffered through dinner while the People enjoyed something that smelled quite tasty indeed. Finally, after a long lasting conversation of this or that (who knows what people talk about anyway), Woman made her immunity selection ...

It was Sugar!

Sugar was correct in her thinking - Norman's Woman DID want to take him back the mountains. Interestingly enough, Mr. Ian's plan was to give Norman immunity so he could live with the Counselors forever, but Woman vetoed that ruling!

The Counselors kissed Norman goodbye.

He said his farewells to the other Campers and headed back home toward the mountains.

Although he would miss the Campers and the Counselors, he was very happy to see his People again, and looked forward to peeing in his own backyard.

    A great ending to a great story! I believe Emma is the loudest snorer and Alfred comes in second! We look forward to Norman coming back to camp and any other campers that want to stay here while their people are in the area! I bet Norman will be so happy when Winston and Sela get there!

    It must be so great to see your people again - even though the camp counselors looked very nice and loving. There's nothing like our own people!

    Pug love from,
    Pearl & Daisy

    Oh Norman, I think you won the real prize. Going home with Woman and Ian. Home is the best place to be.
