Jury Vote: Sunday Nov 18th, at Noon

WRKE’s hit contest is back for Outlast 2.0 and the rules are all different. This time, players can use the bathroom and eat and drink. The only thing they can’t do is leave. If they want to win, they have to make it through 15 hours, 12 challenges, 9 other students, 8 eliminations, and get 4 jury votes.
Students playing will be in the radio studio from 9am – midnight with no phones, and a microphone capturing their every word. Once the final two are crowned at midnight, everyone will come back at noon the following day and the last 7 eliminated players will vote for the winner of Outlast 2.0.
