Hungry for a Win
October 8

Galu has been on a roll, with the tribe relaxing and Shambo doing the hard work. Over at Foa Foa, Russell continued his wicked ways. And Ben self-destructed in this round, leaving the tribe no choice but to vote him off. Now 16 remain...

Night 8: He gave me no other choice.

Jaison is starting to believe that coming to Survivor was the worst mistake of his life.

Day 9: It's game man...

Russell notes that Jaison was very upset with Ben, thinking that if Ben stayed, then Jaison would've quit the game. He's still willing to get rid of Jaison should the need arise, mind you.

Over on Galu, Shambo returns from a round of huge appreciation to... well, this. She feels ten times closer to Foa Foa than she does to Galu. She already has a following. If she can make it to the merge, she already has the votes.

Erik tells Shambo that the clue to the Immunity Idol could possibly apply not only to Foa Foa beach, but to Galu's as well. They go over the clues one more time...  That can do nothing but help.


"The chief must choose two,
to join him on a quest,
To go on a mission
Which could turn out for the best.

When your Chief comes home,
The tribe might have more to eat,
But you won't know why
Until the mission is complete."

Mick chooses Russell and Natalie. Russell chooses Shambo and Dave for Galu for...


... nothing, really.

There's a reward of chickens, so this must be...

R-CHALLENGE: The Hostless Challenge (for chickens)

In a chest are three colored balls for each player and a flag. The flag goes in the middle. The object is to get your tribe's balls closest to the flag. It's bocce ball horseshoes. The closest to the flag wins.

Winners... on the last ball hail Mary... the Galu!

Back at camp, Erik goes in search of an idol... which may or may not be in the bark of a tree. That doesn't go without noticing.  But at least Erik has the Idol. He's not going to tell anyone that he has it.

Meanwhile, Russell and the crew bring home the... chicken. Meet Daisy & Millie. They have to eat and drink all the time. In return, they'll lay eggs. Because that's what hens do.

The rain continues to fall on Foa Foa. Jaison's tired and hungry... for both food and a win. Russell doesn't know if Jaison, his current partner, can survive the rest of the game, so he's exploring perhaps Natalie, who calls him her "wingman". She wants others to think that she's not as good of a player as she would like to believe that she is. She knows that Russell's been rubbing folks the wrong way.

Day 10: What a good chicken.

And we have our first egg at Galu.... we also have our first escaped chicken. Shambo and Erik give chase... and it would be the utmost example of physical comedy ever on Survivor. The story ends with a chicken stuck in a tree and no one caring.

Day 11: Watching you is making me sleepy...

Kelly's getting sick of watching Yasmin do nothing. The tribe is working so well because of the team working together to bring themselves to the merge with the numbers advantage. Meanwhile, Yasmin is in this for herself.

I-CHALLENGE: Stack Job (Shambo, Laura, Dave, and Russell sit out for Galu)

Tribes will race across a netrun carrying blocks that will have to be stacked. Once they are stacked, you will have to go through a rope bridge, where you will have to stack a higher pillar of blocks. The team with both pillars stacked wins.

Galu is the first to finish the first stack, but it's close all the way through. Foa Foa makes up a lot of time. Can they translate it into a win? Doesn't look like it, as Galu heads to stack first. And Kelly loses two blocks for Galu. This might be the deal breaker... FOA FOA WINS!

Back at Tribal, the Galu try to assess the loss. Russell thinks Monica screwed the challenge. Also, Shambo managed to lose a chicken, while Yasmin has done nothing. Yasmin tells Shambo that the tribe preys on people doing something wrong. She's not looking down on anyone, but Monica didn't help anyone win the challenge...

Kelly thinks that it's the safer bet to vote for Yasmin. Erik says that she's stronger than Monica in challenges. They theoretically could go against the leader, but no one wants to be on Russell's bad side. Erik goes with Russell with this information. Russell doesn't agree with the groupthink, saying that Monica is a liability. "They have to listen to me, or there's gonna be some serious ass-kicking."

Night 11: Tribal...

Shambo says that everyone's a little on edge. They don't want to be there. Brett says that there are people who are pulling their own weight. Yasmin defends herself, saying that she may not belong in the jungle, but she stepped it up. Russell says that challenges are the base. Get those done, and the rest will fall into place. Monica struggled. She thinks she did a great job in the challenge. Dave thinks ultimately that what's good for the tribe is good for him.

Monica: "YAZEE" - "I don't think you have carried your weight around camp, despite what you say."
Yasmin: MONICA
Laura: YAZ
Shambo: MONICA

The rest of the votes fall... to YASMIN. By a vote of 8 to 2... THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
