Survivor: Rwanda is the third season of LiteCitrus' Survivor Series.
It all started where 16 eager contestants were to be marooned in the unforgiving and arid terrain of Africa's own Rwanda. With evacuations around it was a demolished Kumwe tribe by constant evacuations and Immunity Challenge losses that were the most affected. However a luck of the draw twist sprung new hopes and alliances amongst newly made tribes when Jean made newly swapped tribes. Unbeknownst to Jean he played his cards wrong and made stronger more fearsome alliances as his tribe lost both Immunity challenges. When news of the merge reached the contestants, a frenzy of paranoia and strategy surfaced. It seemed as if every vote had been it's own individual blindside, tempers flared, allies back stabbed, and many shocking eliminations followed. With Ali's manipulative success in creating false final two and three deals only got him to come up short where it had mattered most with a spot in the finals. A merge struggling against the foundation of feuding alliances of Ali, Joe, and Sean vs Isaiah, Jackson, and William. In the end it was Isaiah who was awarded for his constant success and prevailing for being pinned at the bottom when his ally was blindsided. Isaiah was crowned the Sole Survivor of Survivor:Rwanda with a 6-1 jury vote.

In a race to spam trends Kumwe pulled out their first win. With Intwari's first loss the tribe felt it was safer to target the obvious Kumwe minority on their tribe, ultimately priorities were outweighed and the tribe was scared of having Danny and Jake make it to the merge so they had to blindside Danny to garner Jake's loyalty.

It was then the plan was set in motion where Ali and Sean, lied to Isaiah about who would be receiving the boot. At Tribal Council Ali, Joe H., and Sean's Final 3 prevailed and got rid of Jackson who was a big part of the game. With being completely bold face lied to and betrayed, Isaiah was amibitious to make big moves.
Episode 10:"He Dodged a Bullet!"Edit
- Immunity Challenge: Tengaged Pop Culture Scavenger Hunt
After Jackson's blindside, Isaiah thought the game before him was nothing but a shot in the dark. Angered and upset by his allies he was ready to make a ploy to take out some big targets of his own. At Immunity everyone's fear came true when Isaiah won the Immunity Challenge sending everyone into a scramble for needed votes. In an attempt to oust Isaiah's closest bet to an ally Willy, it backfired when Joe H. felt it was time for a player he considered a jury threat like Sean to go out, and just that happened. After a miraculous turn around and blindside of Isaiah the tables had turned on Ali putting him in similar shoes of what Isaiah just went through.
Episode 11:"Stop Screwing Me Over!"Edit
- Immunity Challenge: Blog Trend Off (Individual Version)
After Sean's blindside, an angered Ali set vengeance for his ally's vote off. Ali looked to Joe H. who seemed to be the swing vote as an opportune person to shake up the game. In the Final 4 Immunity Challenge Ali prevailed much to Isaiah's dismay, it was then decided by Isaiah that he had to join forces in the vote with Willy to oust an unpredictable and big game floater Joe H., dramatically at Tribal Council the vote came to a dead locked between Joe H. & Willy twice. A challenge was played to determine who's fate still remained in the game and it was Willy who succeeded and a big hearted Joe H. who's question mark votes met up with him.
Episode 12:"Finale & Reunion"Edit
- Immunity Challenge: Puzzle & Vote Off Memory
Conclusive to the dramatic Final 4 tie-breaker challenge, defeated with the outcome Ali knew deep in his heart the Immunity had to be his. Coming along way from the 23 previous days where 16 participants were ready and willing to take the Rwandan terrain as there own it all came down to this challenge. A race of puzzle solving, memory, and following directions would lead one lucky person to a spot in the Final 2 where they would be able to plead their final case on why they should win the title of Sole Survivor and the gift prize. After two hours of an intense battle Isaiah prevailed and knew instinctively there was no way he stood a chance against Ali in finals for being the underdog and pinning all the other votes on other people successfully.
After Ali was voted out, it was time for Isaiah and Willy to make their cases to the jury on why they should win. While Isaiah led a play by play on his reasoning for every vote and his willingness, loopholes and question marks in Willy's flawed responses brought both humility and bewilderment amongst the jury. Ultimately Ali still attached to his strong feelings of his ousting did not cast his vote for Isaiah and was the only one not to do so. It was Isaiah who prevailed and defeated Willy in an astonishing jury feat where he won Survivor:Rwanda in a vote of 6-1.
- In the fourth Immunity Challenge, Jean received a special power which would be put into effect after the fourth Tribal Council, Jean received the power to solely pick the newly swapped tribes.
- In the fifth Immunity Challenge, the first five who checked in, (Dylan, Isaiah, Jake, Jean, and Sean) regardless of tribe received individual Immunity for their effort of checking in if their tribe managed to lose the challenge, they would not be penalized for being active.
- In the sixth Immunity Challenge, the winner received a two round Individual Immunity, in which would save them in the second back to back vote they would have to go to, with no Immunity at stake for saving the others in that round.
