Whiners are Weiners
November 21

Pete & Abi ruled the game with an iron-fist, going into the merge with the numbers, but when Skupin got tired of being at the bottom of the totem pole, everyone was put on notice with Artis' ouster. Now only eight remain.

NIGHT 25: "I feel bad for Artis"

With Artis' vote-out, Abi struggles to think of another game plan. Skupin's organization of his voteout was his first game move, and he's going to need a little more to ensure his survival. He needs to control the game as much as he can.

DAY 26: "I could walk away having never broken my word"

It's hard for Lisa to be in an alliance with Pete and Abi... and part of it stems from being the kind of person who can't break up normally. Lisa would feel better being sixth than being someone who is being used. With this, Lisa thinks she has taken control of her own destiny.

REWARD CHALLENGE: DRUM CIRCLES (for a spa day off island)

Teams will flip their drums to reveal symbols while flipping other teams' drums back to blanks. Team who keeps theirs flipped on a symbol first gets a point. Three points wins. The teams:

RED: Abi, Carter, Malcolm, Pete
BLUE: Penner, Denise, Lisa, Skupin

"Survivors, ready...GO!"

Carter vs. Penner: RED (Red lead, 1-0)
Malcolm vs. Skupin: YELLOW (tied, 1-1)
Abi vs. Lisa: YELLOW (thanks Abi! Yellow lead, 2-1)
Pete vs. Denise: RED (tied, 2-2)
Malcolm vs. Skupin: RED (thanks, Skupin! RED WINS, 3-2)

AFTERNOON 26 - RED: Spa day

The kids are welcomed onto a beach spa, entering into an agreement that they're just going to enjoy this... no drama, no strategy... except for Malcolm, who suggests this to suggest that the final teammates he wants to vet are back on the game.

AFTERNOON 26 - YELLOW: Well that was quick.

It was a quiet day until Abi decided to start back up on the jammering and the flaunting. Obviously not one for people skills, that Abi. Hey Carter, what was your favorite part? Yeah, that's nice, let's get back to Abi for a second... Obviously, Abi has zero off switch. "And I'm leaving soon, so I'm just enjoying my final moments." She doesn't want to cook, but she does want to eat.

DAY 27: "I'm out of the kitchen... No more cooking for me."

Everyone wants Pete to stay and Abi to go, but how do you break up a team like that and get rid of the toxic weight? Malcolm decides to start building his final four right now. Malcolm, Lisa, Denise, and Skupin... sounds like a winner there. Strategically, it's a good plan, because if you say no, then you're on the outs. We're at a point where you need to trust somebody. Lisa trusts Penner more than Skupin at the moment.

Lisa wants to go to the end with Penner and Skupin. Penner says he's more than comfortable taking care of business. He says it's "too early to say" who he's comfortable taking to the final three. Let's get rid of Pete & Abi first. Lisa says it's an opportunity missed.

Malcolm swears on his family that he, Lisa, Denise, and Skupin are the final four. Skupin is not comfortable with it, but at the same thing, he doesn't really have much of a choice in the matter.


Maneuver a buoy around a tethered rope. First five move to the next stage, a buoy on a rope around a balance beam. Three go to the final stage, a buoy around a series of obstacles in the water. First one to cross the finish line wins.

"Survivors, ready...GO!"

Round 1 Survivors: Denise, Carter, Penner, Skupin, and Malcolm

Round 2: Survivors: Denise, Carter, Skupin


AFTERNOON 27: "An alliance of three"

Abi thinks it's an alliance of three: her, Pete, and the hidden Idol. They don't have the numbers. Their ship has sailed. Penner believes that his alliance of six will stay strong. But there's a chance to make a stupid move.

Pete's not going to roll over and accept his fate, telling us that Malcolm is next to go. All he needs is one of the big six to flip, and it's a new ballgame. Lisa... may be that one, but she's not going to just flip and not let somebody know about it. She's just too goody-goody.

Penner is not going to trust anyone in this game, but people are going to trust him.

The game plan: splitting the vote in case Abi plays the Idol. Malcolm is the biggest player in the game right now. Would Skupin be up for it? Strategically, it's a gutsy move. But then again, it's coming from Pete. Malcolm's a threat in challenges, he's strategic, and everyone likes him. Skupin doesn't say no to Pete's deal. Malcolm decides that the easiest way to flip a player is to throw his name out. This is going to be the trickiest play yet...


Malcolm is more concerned with staying in the game than working the jury, as Abi just did with Artis. It's not hard to put the pieces together as to what's going on. Skupin always thinks about the Idol, thinking about who's going home when. Nobody really and truly knows how it'll fall. Pete says that being slated for execution is not a good feeling. Abi says she has regrets about how she handled the last Tribal, saying that her attitudes can be perceived as "not the most gentle". Denise calls BS. Lisa forgives Abi for her transgressions, but she needs to find people who will trust her. Denise says that it's an easy win if you want to play the game that way... to take Abi to the final. Jeff thinks that it is cultural, because she couldn't pick up that people laughing at you means that you're full of it. She's weathering a storm, thinking that it's all hatred. It's not hatred, but frustration on the part of Denise.

Abi: MALCOLM - "This is for you. I hope you go home tonight."

And ABI plays the Hidden Idol! The one, two, three votes cast against her will not count. The votes that do count...

Malcolm: PETE
Carter: PETE
Penner: PETE

By a vote of 3 to 2, Pete... THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
