A Tiebreaker is a event at Tribal Council where two or more castaways have the same amount of votes counted against them, and nobody else a vote count higher. In which, some sort of tiebreaker is necessary to break the tie.
A tiebreaker is a situation that occurs when more than one castaway have the highest number of votes. There are different ways to break a tie, usually starting with a revote. Other than there, the game had shown several ways to break a deadlocked tie.
Proved in previous seasons of Survivor on 703 Network, a revote will commence once a tie occurs (unless it is a Final Tribal Council tie, in that instance there will be an extra juror). Prior to the revote, a bit conversation is allowed to occur, that may sway people's votes to send a certain person home. In that revote, only the castaways who are not affiliated with the tie are eligible to vote.
If a non-voting castaway's self-vote causes a tie, the tied castaways may or may not vote.
A revote occurs almost every time the votes are tied at a regular Tribal Council. The list below indicates each time a revote has happened throughout the ORG , and what the outcome has been. The majority of the time, someone is eliminated after a revote, but if the revote is deadlocked, a tiebreaker challenge or rock draw occurs.

Deadlock Tie MechanismsEdit
A fire-making challenge on 703N ORG is very different from one of Survivor, but they both have the same outcome. The castaways still in deadlock must compete in a challenge (usually an online game), and the one who has the highest score or time wins, while the other is eliminated. The chart below describes every time a fire-making challenge has occurred on 703N's Survivor.

The Purple Rock tiebreaker is a more rare choice that decides a tie, and has only happened in three 703 Network season thus far. The tied contestants are safe, as well as anyone who has individual immunity or has played a Hidden Immunity Idol. Everyone else must pick a rock out of a bag, and let luck decide their fate. Out of all the yellow rocks (which are safe), there is one purple rock, which means elimination for the castaway who pulls it out.
