The Joining Blog was a blog created by Cabbage pult 74, one of the wirters of the season, in order to choose a character out of a total of 15 characters to either join or return (in the case of the eliminated contestants) to the competition at the merge episode.
The writers of the season decided to introduce a character or an eliminated character when the contestants made it to the merge, without expecting some unexpected joiners, after a poll, Cabbage pult 74 and The not so happy user gained the power of deciding who was going to join.
The blog appeared when The Lord Of The Stings was finished, and a list of 15 contestants, plus Izzy, who was eliminated on that episode appeared. Every day a character was removed from the list, and the eliminated contestants were added at the meantime. This is the list of the 15 original contestants on the blog:
