Everyone Pretty Hard
Last time on the island, Ozzy found the
idol and replaced it with a fake. That put his alliance in the power
position... until the tribes were switched and James & Parvati went over
to Airai. Meanwhile, a Reward Challenge injured Penner severely. Joel
decided to get rid of Chet, but the favorites decides to band together
and blindside Joel.
Night 14: Blindside... part 3.
Joel showed no emotion in his ouster, as Erik thought he was shafted by
the result of the vote. "If the playing field has been lowered to lying
and tricking people, I might have to do something like that."
Day 15: The weak inherit the earth...
It was hard to put up Joel, but he was hell-bent on getting rid of Chet.
Tracy is driven crazy by not being in control. She didn't come this far
to bend over. She thinks Erik is next to go. "They aren't going to take
you with them." The only hope is to have one of the favorites flip.
Ami senses the shift, and has no problem telling Tracy so. "I was never
a part of the original alliance, so I'm also in a very vulnerable
Over on Airai, Penner's knee is "feeling better". James says losing him
is going to be a big blow to a team.
Eliza believes that Fans vs. Favorites is over, and her priority one is
getting rid of James and Parvati.
R-Challenge: Tunnel Revision (for two native Micronesians; Airai sits
Swim out to collect bundles of planks, sticks, and ropes. They would
then have ten minutes to use these items to build a blockade of the
other tribe's tunnel. The tribes would then race to tear apart the other
team's blockade of their own tunnel and get all the members of their
tribe through to the other side.
Winners: Airai. They choose Chet from Malakal and Jason from their own
to go to Exile.
Meanwhile, Penner stays behind with medical for another look at that
knee of his. His tribe stays behind. You can tell that his suture is
oozing pus. This is going to need something bigger than what medical has
on hand. Penner says he's not going to quit, but we're looking at
something potentially fatal. Dr. Sartini recommends that Penner be
medevac'ed out of the game immediately. Penner reluctantly agrees. No
one wants Penner to leave the game under these circumstances, but this
is the reality of the situation.
With a quick "I'll see you at the reunion", a teary-eyed Penner is
sailed to hospital.
Back on Airai, Joe and Edwin from the Palau season return to help the
new breed of tribesmen get the most of life on the island, all while
James is thinking that Penner being out of the game will not help his
situation. Together with Edwin & Joe, the Airai, using fishing line, an
extra machete, two knives, a fishing net, vegetables, fruit, learn how
to fish and hunt for crabs.
Over on Malakal, Chet is once again called out for doing nothing. Amanda
says that they don't work well as a team. Cirie says not only do you
have to play the game, you have to teach the fans how to play the game
as well. Ami says that they have to be given the chance, because they
were there once as well. Tracy decides that Cirie needs to go because
she can't be trusted. Ami is conflicted because she can't trust Cirie
either. She asks Erik to take care of her.
Cirie wonders if Jason found the Idol yet. Ozzy, as we know, already has
the Idol. Jason MAY have found the fake Idol. We won't know until we go
... Exile Island. Jason and Chet are looking at the clues, while Chet is
playing through pain. He thinks that there's an infection AND that Ozzy
already has the Idol. Jason refuses to believe one of those things.
Guess which one. I'll give you a hint. Jason is holding a stick in his
hand. "It's not much, but it's a carving with a little guy on it. This
is really good for me." Suuuuure it is.
Night 15: Crabs after dark...
Joe & Edwin say that it's best to hunt for crab after the sun sets. Sure
enough, they're right, and they have a few to nosh on for dinner. The
two join the tribe for dinner.
First, an update. Penner's wound was cleaned up, and he's now doing
well. Jason says that he thinks that Ozzy has the Idol.
Use two stepping poles to transfer two tribesmen from one platform to
another out at sea. All the tribe members would then swim out to a
smaller tower. To win immunity, the tribe has to get all seven of its
members on the tower with both feet on or above the top deck.
Winners: Airai. They go the idea to use one pole each for Eliza and
Day 17: Throwing it in. Officially.
Back at camp, Chet reveals his fish hook injury, saying that he's ready
to go home. Ozzy says... "Okay." "Was their any question anyways?"
But it may not be that easy, as Erik thinks that he and Tracy would
serve the game more honorably by voting out a stronger threat. Erik
tries to talk Chet out of it and vote for Ozzy. If Tracy and Erik
convince Chet to stay, Ami will vote with them.
More chicken politics.
He says he'll think about it, but he's not sure what to do at this
Night 17: Tribal...
Cirie says it sucks the way Penner went out like that. Ozzy says he's a
strong guy, but he didn't expect what he saw today. Erik thought that
what Jason said put a lot of thoughts in his head. Cirie doesn't take it
at face value. Ozzy says he's not going home tonight, to the point that
he will strip down tonight and jump off the pier. Chet says that there's
an obvious person going home, but there's an uncertainty around. Amanda
thinks that if you start feeling comfortable, you're going home.
Ozzy - CHETTINGTON V: "Thanks for letting us use you to vote out Joel,
and I hope your foot feels better."
Ami - (HIDDEN): "Sorry to see you go. Bye."
Now to the rest of the votes...
That's four. That's enough. The rest...
With a vote of 5-2, Chet, THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
