She Obviously Is Post-Op!
October 2

Last time in Africa, eighteen Americans began their adventure of a lifetime. Lots of the players hid who they were at the outset, but it didn't do much for their standing in the game. And while Kota could do no wrong, Fang could do no right, sending TWO players home, and lacking a surefire leader. For now at least.

Night 6: "Thank God for another night."

Crystal says that they got rid of a major physical weak link in Gillian, their oldest tribesmate. Randy says of his tribe... "They're stupid."

Day 7: "Oh man, we're getting it crackin' out here."

Rice is almost gone at the Fang camp. Someone wanted three meals a day... On Survivor. Randy calls the tribe on it, compromising it at two instead of three. He also says that GC is "the cancer of the tribe". We're going to continue to have problems unless the cancer is excised. The two begin to have a shouting match. Randy doesn't want to be leader. Let GC have it. Dan says that they'd stand more of a chance presenting a unified front.

Over at Kota, the happy tribe eats tonight. Charlie says of his alliance of Marcus, Corrine, and Jacquie that they're really tight. He definitely sees that Bob is a swing vote. He thinks that the other five are so over the place that they can keep the four together. Sugar and Ace are buddying together. She trusts him.


"This head to head battle
Requires a well-balanced team.
To win some camp comfort,
You'll kick and you'll scream."

"Totally bedding. YES!"

Ace suggests that the team sit out their strongest so that they'll be well-rested for Immunity. Paloma, though, says that they're over Ace.

R-CHALLENGE: Kicking & Screaming (for comfort: blankets, hammock, pillows & mat, and Exile choosing. Fang sits out Ken, Kota sits out Corinne, Jacquie, and Kelly)

One tribesman will be stationed at a post. Two opposing tribesmen will try to remove you from that post and drag you to the finish line. First tribe to do that scores a point. First tribe to score two points wins.

First, Dan vs. Charlie & Mark and Ace vs. GC & Matty. Dan is wrested from the post, but a submission is needed to keep him from escaping. Kota scores point #1.

Next, Susie and Paloma take the posts. Striking Susie are Bob & Sugar. Striking Paloma are Randy & Crystal. This is more lopsided as Paloma is done quickly to tie it at one.

Rubber match! Ace & Dan on the poles. Marcus and Bob will attack for Kota, while Crystal and Matty will strike for Fang. Kota is playing to keep their streak alive. Everyone's not giving up an inch... but Crystal and Matty drag Ace off first! While Dan is too busy submitting, Ace is breaking free. This is a race. Who'll have more will... Ace... or Ace's attackers?

Ace's attackers. Fang wins reward! They send Sugar to Exile.

Back at Camp Fang, we reflect on the challenge. For the first time, Fang feels like a team. Meanwhile at Kota, Ace calls it not a loss, but a strategic withdrawal. Paloma compares herself to Crystal, which is like comparing tiny apples to megaginormous oranges. Ace says her lack of motivation sealed what they were all thinking.

Over at Exile, Sugar receives this...

"You've arrived in Exile,
A lovely lonely place,
In this Garden of Eden,
A difficult choice you'll face...

One choice provides an apple,
One choice provides direction.
Spend your time in idle comfort
or seek Idol protection."

She goes for the clue, which reads...

"Across the lake you see so well,
There lies a sandy crater.
The object hidden in its floor
will surely help you later."

A few stings from fireants and a hike through the jungle (in the opposite direction) later, we learn that Sugar's father died seven months ago. She's in the game to develop a stronger skin in the face of that.

She runs into a sandy crater... and she starts looking... and what to her wondering eyes should appear but...another clue.

"Now turn around,
Go back towards the lake,
On one tree hill,
Climb for salvation's sake."

Sugar makes a climb and finds... another clue.

"Walk along a yonder creek,
Beneath the burned wood is the thing you seek."

The walk continues.. .until burnt embers yield... another clue.

"Through creatures unknown,
You'll have to wade,
Among the limbs that reach skyward,
Your deliverance shall be made."

She wades in a creek through the gators to a tree... and finds... the Immunity Idol! "I can't believe I found it and a lawyer didn't!"

Day 9: "If you line everyone up, the two on the bottom are Paloma and Sugar."

Ace and Bob think that they can trust Sugar longer, though Bob can see through Ace's plan to protect Sugar at all costs. "He's doing something very stupid," says Corinne. "He's bringing Sugar to the end because she's weak." Corinne says it doesn't matter because they're five. No one is looking to take Bob to the end, but it's a numbers game.


"Slip, slide, splash and run.
The stakes are high, but you'll have some fun.
Who is bright, and who is slow?
Know the difference, or be the next to go."

I-CHALLENGE: Slip Slidin' Away

Launch yourself down a waterslide, and then retrieve one of six number tiles. The remaining tribemate will have to use the numbers to solve a math puzzle:

"The sum of both end values equals the sum of the middle two, the last is equal to the second minus the third and is one less than its only neighbor." The numbers are 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 (C-Note: see if you can figure it out before the end of this recap!). The answer is the combination to a lock that hides victory.

Bob & Ken will solve, while everyone else slides. Crystal's the first one back as Fang extends their lead, but that is short lived as Susie powers back. They never let up as they're the first to uncover the numbers... and to solve the puzzle! Kota wins immunity, sending Fang to Tribal Council for the first time ever.

Back at camp, Sugar details her time at Exile. She doesn't think that anyone knows that she found the Idol... until she tells Ace. "That just sets our game up until the end." They detail their gameplan to the coup de grace... that being the "dismissal" of Paloma. Paloma decided that the best strategy is to watch until she goes and talks to Corinne about her strategy. "People want (Ace) out because he's strong. People want me out because he's weak." Corinne, though, doesn't think that Ace is that reliable, calling him a con artist, the most likely to flip come the merge, and a faux Briton. Charlie says that there's a short-term benefit of getting rid of a weak player, but Ace is working Sugar like a pawn. Corinne says that getting rid of Ace before he gains momentum is more important, but she dislikes so many people on this damn tribe that it's a tossup.

Night 9: Tribal Council

Corinne is basing her vote on one united opinion together. Ace says tribal strength is important. Sugar draws on her father's spirit. Marcus says that there are two ways to play the hidden Idol, saying that Ace was "a pretty interesting guy to start." Paloma says he's the head honcho; he can be the guy all he wants, but he's not Paloma's hero. Ace isn't that surprised. Kelly says that Ace is pretty condescending. Ace says you can't walk into Tribal without being scared.

Marcus is immune from day 1 and only for tonight.

Paloma: ACE :D - "This is pretty much self-explanatory."
Ace: PALOMA - "Unfortunately, you know exactly why you're leaving. It's for the strength of the tribe. Best of luck."

Rest of the votes read...

Kelly: ACE
Charlie: PALOMA
Corinne: PALOMA

That's five, that's enough. The rest...

Jacquie: PALOMA
Marcus: PALOMA

By a vote of 7 to 2, Paloma, THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.

By the way, the answer to the Immunity Challenge is...


- 1 + 5 = 2 + 4
- 5 = 7 - 2
- 6 less one = 5
