Last time on Survivor, tribal lines were both
drawn and erased in the merge. Erik was voted out first, but Russell was voted
out AFTER he played his Immunity Idol, leaving the old Galu with six... or so it
would seem, as Shambo's defection evens the numbers. Now there are 10 left and
one hidden Immunity Idol still in play.
Night 24: My work is done.
Russell says that this might be one of the best
pieces of work he's ever done. It may be worth a million dollars. Meanwhile, the
former Foa Foas believe that Russell's a sneaky snake. They should've known
better. Shambo thinks that the look on Laura's face was just classic.
Day 25: Back on the hunt.
Russell starts the day by looking for the hidden
Immunity Idol. This will be the third one if he finds it. Shambo calls Laura the
viper queen of Galu, and she is the first to go. Shambo needs John however to
send Laura home. John knows that Shambo has flipped, but what's he going to do
with that information? After all, he's got to do what's right for him.
R-CHALLENGE: Cradle of Life (a trip to Savai'i for
lunch and a Palm Pre)
Two teams of five will play. Four will maneuver
one on a cradle as they gather flags one at a time. The first team to get all 15
The teams: Shambo, Jaison, Monica, Mick & John in
the cradle vs. Dave, Brett, Laura, Russell, and Natalie in the cradle.
Natalie gets the first flag up to the post, while
John drops his flag. He also drops a posted flag and can't continue until he
gets it back up. Natalie's team are too far ahead. And NATALIE's team win!
At the reward, the five-some of Dave, Brett,
Laura, Russell, and Natalie get some badly needed food in their bellies... and a
clue on their Sprint Palm Pre. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.
Back at camp, Jaison knows where the votes lie,
and Laura prepares to offer a very lucrative deal in exchange for her survival,
thinking that Shambo was the fifth vote for the Foa Foas.
Back to the reward, through and this...
See your "Memo" board for a lead to your next
The board posting says...
"This Palm in your hand holds much
Which you'd better heed, or it will be your own loss.
The immunity idol is no rolling stone
A rolling stone gathers no moss."
It's under a mossy rock, per another video clue.
Once the tribe is reunited, Russell shares the
information with Jaison, so now it's a mad search between Russell and Dave.
And once again, Russell finds the hidden immunity
Laura thinks that the Foa Foas are coming after
her. She has to win....
I-CHALLENGE: Breaking the Third Wall
Use a rock to break as many tiles as you can. For
every tile you break, you earn a spear. The closest to a bullseye will win
Jaison gets a spear, Monica has a spear, Mick has
a spear, Brett has two... Laura has... zero.
Part two has the spear to the bullseye. Will that
extra spear give Brett the advantage? Nope. Mick wins it.
Day 27: You're gonna open that thing up?
Russell is happy because there is at least a tie
coming up on Tribal Council. Shambo is voting for Laura tonight. Brett can't
change her mind. Laura decides to play for a flushout of the Idol, voting for
Russell, but John decides to offer up Natalie, because she is the least-likely
to have the Idol. John thinks that voting off Shambo, Russell, and Erik over a
30-second decision... "You're an idiot." Some people are, at the same time,
saying John. The tribe needs to give this more thought.
Monica tells the Foa Foa that they're voting for
John. Russell tells Monica that there is no way to avoid the 5-5 tie that's
coming up, even as she says that she would rather take out John than Laura. Mick
thinks that she's put a little snake in the grass for some information. Russell
& Jaison want to let John know that it's going to be him on the block.
Brett tells John of Monica's plan. Doesn't sound
like a good plan if you're John. So John talks to the former Galus, telling him
that he's not going to step in the way of Laura's punch as it were. Russell
tells John of the 5-5 vote. If it goes to the tie, it has to come down to John
switching. And the next vote... needs to be a Foa Foa.
Is this going to come down to a rock draw?
Night 27: Tribal...
John's surprised that two Galus have been voted
out. John says that the appeal of the Foa Foa four is a block. Shambo says that
Galu is no longer one tight unit. Laura doesn't know what Shambo's talking
about. A group can't be tight if one of the member is on the fence. Dave is okay
with going to a tie. There's nothing bigger than lady luck.
Shambo: LAURA - "You're a viper and a poison, and
I pray to God you go tonight."
The rest of the votes...
John: .... NATALIE
We're tied at 5. Time for a revote. Laura and
Natalie will not vote.
Dave: NAT - "I'm ready to roll the dice. Let's
The rest of the votes...
And the final vote is...
John: .... LAURA
By a vote of 5-3, LAURA... The tribe has spoken
in another blindside.
