Eva is brought back by Chris in "No Pain, No Game," claiming that she was a "fan favorite," but in reality, Chris just liked her for her drama potential. At this point, the teams have merged, and the cabins are separated by gender. Eva immediately directs all her hatred towards Bridgette, the sole female Killer Bass member left on the island. Throughout the episode, she gives insults and death threats to Bridgette, constantly referring to her as a "two-faced, low life, backstabber". She also riles up other campers like Heather and Leshawna, whom the latter had stepped in to defend Bridgette. In the challenge, Eva forces Lindsay to give cruel torture to Bridgette, who is spared when Geoff takes her place. When Bridgette performs well in her torture and is given a choice on who to go next, all of the campers chant for her to pick Eva. Bridgette agrees and Eva has to last one round with Sasquatchanakwa in a crate for 10 seconds. To everyone's surprise, Eva not only survives, but she ends up tearing off Sasquatchanakwa's fur to give herself a fur hat and boots. Despite performing well in the challenge, in the end, Eva loses to Leshawna in a sudden death round. At the elimination ceremony, almost every camper ends up voting for Eva, while she herself votes for Heather. Eva proves troublesome to handle and has to be subdued and put in a straitjacket to send her away. As Eva is driven off, she attempts to disclose the truth about Izzy whereabouts in the past few episodes, implying Izzy had actually stayed at Playa Des Losers rather than in the wild as she had claimed.
Dissatisfied with his previous experiences as a screenwriter in the animation industry, Savin Yeatman-Eiffel wanted to create a distinctive kind of show, one that would revive the type of emotions he had felt as a kid watching the classic Japanese anime series of the 70s. In short, he wanted to stress the emotional side of his characters and story, something that he felt had totally disappeared from Western animation productions. Working on that idea, he created his own company "Sav! The World Productions", which released in 2001 a short movie entitled Molly, Star-Racer, produced in part by Sparx Animation Studios and set to a Y&Co. remix of Ayumi Hamasaki songs. The trailer already showed a mix of 3D and 2D though at the time 3D was still predominant. It featured many of the characters with unfinalized designs including Jordan, Don Wei, Maya, Aikka, Satis, Toros, Sül, Ondai, Ning & Skun, Furter and of course, Molly racing across various places in the Oban landscape featured later in the series. This short movie won the 2001 LEAF Awards and was nominated for best editing in the 2002 Imagina Awards. Leaked on the internet, it quickly became extremely popular among animation fans, generating hundreds of thousands of downloads on various sites - a rarity at the time. The pilot is produced using Alias Wavefront Maya 3D software.
Savin Yeatman-Eiffel succeeded in the end, involving major financial partners like Disney and Bandai without surrendering his control of the artistic elements. But it took him a total of nine years to complete the series from initial idea to delivery of the final episode (the concept was created in 1997, with initial production having begun in Paris in 2000, moving to Tokyo three years later). 2b1af7f3a8
