Hell Breaks Loose
Last time, Shambo was
elected leader of the Galu, while Foa Foa continue to
wonder why they keep losing. Cracks are beginning to
show on the Galu side, though they did win immunity.
Twelve remain, with the Foa Foa outnumbered 8 to 4.
Night 18: If rah-rah is what
we need, I can be rah-rah.
Jaison thinks that the
Foa Foa needs to bring it together, then divide and
conquer. Russell says that they need a merge and they
need one badly. That's probably what's going to happen
next, he thinks. He has to make sure that his seed is
planted in their heads.
Day 19: Tension
Laura says that Shambo
doesn't like her. This comes to blows as the two look
for canteens. She doesn't get it. She doesn't understand
it. She doesn't like it. Shambo says it's not just
canteens, it's about things becoming like high school.
Erik says that anyone who dares to fight Shambo is not
just as crazy as she is, but you're also a biatch.
"Again it's time to
follow your leader,
Face to face with your rivals once more.
With your bodies pumped and your minds sharp,
Your taste buds and stomachs can score."
Russell digs up his
immunity idol for safe keeping.
Both tribes arrive on the
beach, but there's no Jeff, only a chest. In it...
Paint... a blue flag... and new buffs.
"Congratulations Foa Foa
and Galu, you are now one tribe. Replace your old buffs
with the new ones, and leave behind your leadership
necklaces and tribe flags. Before your next immunity
challenge you must come up with a new tribe name. Use
the paints and supplies to create your new tribe flag."
They will all go back and
live at the old Galu camp, where a feast is waiting for
The tribesmen decide to
get to know each other, while Shambo takes a lie-down.
Russell notes that the Foa Foa is quick to do what he
set them out to do.
Now it's time to make
themselves to home. Natalie wants to find out if there
are any cracks. "And there are cracks."
Brett names the new
tribe: "Aiga", Samoan for "extended family". Erik,
who holds an Immunity Idol, says "What's Samoan for get
the hell off my island?"
Russell gets his plan in
motion, as he shows Laura his Idol. He wants top 7 in
return. Laura doesn't believe for a second that he'll
hand it over, telling him that she's pretty much running
the show around here. So he tries again with Monica.
Same deal, the Idol for top 2. He thinks that Monica
doesn't believe a word he says. Perhaps if he gets rid
of Laura. Take 3, this time with John. He thinks that
Laura should go first. "Once she's gone, the girl power
is over." John decides to go get some cavalry to drum up
Day 21: Back at the docks...
Shambo and Russell go
fishing. Russell says that Shambo could be one of his
numbers, especially when you think about her and Laura's
thing. Shambo hates Laura, so at any point, she'll vote
to get rid of her. Shambo says that she's cut from the
same jib as Russell. Will Jaison go along? Will Natalie?
I-CHALLENGE: Survivor T-Ball
Swing toward the high
score... Win Immunity. For today's challenge, one woman
and one man will take home the hardware.
John: 5 - IMMUNE
Shambo: OFF... big stick, no love.
Laura: 4 - IMMUNE
This will throw a big
stick into Russell's plans.
Erik and Laura will
decide who will go home today. Russell thinks that he's
being targeted, so he may just have to play the Idol.
Erik & Laura decide to flush out the idol and target
Jaison instead. Together, they put the plan into motion,
but John wants to ax Monica, instead. John believes that
it's still in his best interest to get rid of Monica.
Erik thinks that getting Monica's trust will be good for
him down the road.
The Galu Men decide not
to talk to Shambo about the vote. Let her vote whatever
she wishes. Dave thinks that Erik's a little shifty.
Jaison thinks that Erik is talking down to the tribe.
Truth be told, Jaison wants four votes on Erik.
None of the women trust
Erik. Kelly and Laura say that Erik needs to go now.
Natalie's putting all of her faith on Laura and Kelly...
and Dave, apparently. All the girls want to vote Erik.
All of the guys want to vote to flush out the Idol.
Right now, nothing is certain. Well, two things are
certain: John and Laura.
Night 21: Tribal.
Jaison says that living
in Galu is frustrating. Monica says that you never
really know who to trust. Someone could turn the tables.
Erik struggles to see anything that Foa Foa could offer
to Galu. Russell doesn't like pity. Erik might be
surprised. Erik... isn't. He outs EVERYONE's plans.
Jaison says that he had to push through obstacles that
he couldn't go over or around. The point is that Jaison
doesn't care about what Erik thinks. Russell thinks that
they can still make this happens. Erik says that he
doesn't respect Russell that much, but Russell will not
Russell: ERIC :)
Before the votes, Russell
plays the Idol.
And the other votes are
for.... ERIK. By a 10-2 vote, Erik... THE TRIBE HAS
SPOKEN. But Erik will return as the first member of the
Jury of Nine who will decide the winner.
