Company Will Be Arriving Soon
November 3


Last night, after what seemed to be an insurmountable streak of luck, Jill was voted out as La Flor FINALLY went to Tribal Council. Marty then comes to the stark realization that without her, there's no Idol to play. His cover may yet be blown, and he slowly accepts his fate as the next La Flor to go...


... when all of a sudden, Fabio arrives with TREEMAIL!

Follow the map to your new home.

Get the art kits out, I feel the urge to MERGE!

All of a sudden, Marty is, in his words, "back in the saddle again".

But back to Espada, who get THIS note... attached to a chest of sorts.

Do NOT open this box until you have the key.
Make room at your camp... Company will be arriving soon.

Before the La Flor arrive, the Espada rally together to stick together for final six. And by "Espada", we mean "Alina", and by "rally together", we mean "coerce". Obviously the plan doesn't sit well with Benry, who wants her gone. Her plan, snuff out Marty, the "head honcho of La Flor". NaOnka, because she's NaOnka, has something to say about this... "Alina is in this plan by herself, a one woman army, with her not knowing that she’s actually going to be the first one voted out."

You really can't argue that candor.

As La Flor makes its way to Espada's camp, Alina notices that Jill is missing, wondering what happened between her and Marty. Does this now mean that she has to rethink her plan?

That will have to wait. For now, it's a time of celebration, libations, and liberty... or in this case, "LIBERTAD", the new tribe name.

As the tribe comes together as one unit, Brenda & NaOnka play catch up to see what's going on on each other's tribes. NaOnka tells Brenda to watch her back of Alina, because she's a rat who'll ally herself with anyone who'll get her farthest in the game. Brenda tells of Marty's sacrifice idol play to save Sash. They both agree to target Marty and Alina next.

Meanwhile, Chase & Jane hook up due to their shared Tar Heel alliances.


The next morning brings with it breakfast. And NaOnka, being the industrious one, for once, decides to make tortillas for the tribe. Fabio sinks his teeth into the biggest one, while the other tribesmen follow suit. Naturally, this makes NaOnka about as angry as a bird whose eggs were stolen by little green pigs (it's addictive, I tells ya!). She says, you wanna play? Let's play.

She steals the flour. She steals the pans. And then, because she feels like it, she steals OTHER items. And then shares it with Alina, to which she tells that the tribe is out to get her. That grinds her gears, but it's not without purpose, as NaOnka now says that it's a vote for her ON THE JURY. Say what you will about NaOnka and how she only cares about NaOnka, but you can't argue her logic.

After a day at the beach, the rest of the tribe notices that various sundries are missing. Holly asks NaOnka if she may have anything to do with it. She denies it, then Holly brings up the flour that she stowed in her backpack. She comes forward, apologizes, and offers to make amends... Just kidding, she storms off in a bleepity-bleep huff. Alina, meanwhile, is starting to feel guilty due to her knowledge and her lack of forthcoming about the whole thing. "The reason why it was so hard for me to own up to it is everybody might be equally pissed off at me as they are at NaOnka."

But cooler heads prevail and she fesses up to her action, saying that she was "conserving" the rations. Call Marty a skeptic, but he's not buying it for a second. "She lied and she stole. How easy is that, get rid of them. It should be that simple. But this game is never simple."

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL, FRIENDS! She outs Alina as part of her grand theft food. And it pretty much sucks to be her right now.

Elsewhere in the camp, Sash, Jane, Chase, and Brenda agree that having NaOnka will be better for their game, because that's one less person who'll get million dollar votes in the end game.

Back to Jane, though, as she works on catching fish. Benry, Marty, and Fabio look at her and laugh. Marty warns Brenda that Jane could easily snipe the cash away in the long run because she's playing under the radar. Brenda is cautious of Marty's warning, saying that Marty has the wrong perception of Jane AND is talking to some power players of his own.


Using two metal handles to hold a metal bar in tension above a tile, the players are in an endurance match. The object: keep the tile intact. The last man AND woman standing win immunity.

In order... Purple Kelly and Dan, almost simultaneously... Alina.... Brenda... Benry... Sash... Naonka... and by the time Holly calls it quits, Jane has won Immunity, but she stays in the competition if only to send a message to Marty... it's not over yet. As it turns out, she outlasts Marty, leaving Chase and Fabio to face off against each other for the final Idol...

... and it goes....

... to...


Back at camp, Jane reiterates that she wants Marty gone. Sash, though, has a pre-standing deal with Marty to give him the Idol if it looks at all like he's going to need it. He doesn't want to, but at the same time he doesn't want to go back on his word, so he's asking everyone to hold off on excising Marty right now.

Dan tells Marty that he's going to be blindsided. Marty asks Sash what's going on. Sash tries to assure Marty that he has no idea what's going on in terms of blindside. If Marty's to go tonight, Alina will have to do it without the support of Brenda or Sash. But Marty is making it ever so easy as Sash explains: "I think his best move would be to lay low, but that’s not his style. He’s actually digging his own grave at the moment."


Marty continues his tirade against fate in the face of the entire tribe, saying that Jane is the biggest threat to win the whole thing if she survives this vote. He even goes so far as to say that if he ended up on the jury and she was in the final three, he would vote for her.

That reminds me. The players who are voted out from here on out go to the jury of nine who will decide who wins this game.

The vote...

Alina: MARTY
Marty: ALINA

The rest of the votes are for.... ALINA. By a count of 10 to 2, THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
