The Power of the Idol - April 6|
Everyone is now in the game for the
long haul. Seven will make up the jury. Two will compete for a
million. But which seven? And which two?
Day 19: Stupid...
Austin admits that he might have
made a blunder in revealing his plan for survival last Tribal
Council. Meanwhile, Aras, Danielle, and Courtney are digging for
snails. Aras notices that the former La Mina are like those
snails, slimy and hard to grab. And apparently Austin is king
Aras suggests that they play the
Pagong card, eliminating the La Minas without them really
Terry and Sally entertain taking
another former Casaya to their ranks, preferably a woman.
"Skill can win a boatrace, and
making tough decisions takes some guts.
But in political battles, you'll always deal with nuts."
R-Challenge: Going Coconuts
(for a breakfast getaway and the right to send two people to
The nine players are split into
teams of three, as they have to load up coconuts into their
rival's boats. They then have to race those boats out to a flag.
Grab the flag, return it to shore as well as your load in
coconuts to win.
The teams: Aras/Sally/Bruce,
Shane/Terry/Austin, and Danielle/Cirie/Courtney. The overall

they think is going to be in the Final Four, and with that, it
puts two of their players kind of out there. Two of their
players, Danielle and Bruce, are the next on the pecking order.

Danielle sees Austin as a good backup plan in case she can't
find the Idol.
Of course, you and I know what
happened to the Idol.
And now, so does Sally. "The
whole game changes. That's a huge ace in the hole, and I'm so
