"Survivor: What If?: Caramoan Edition"
Another season of Survivor has come and gone, and for those who think that EPMB had manipulated things so that John Cochran would win -- or those who would rather have had someone else win -- here's your chance!

Back since Nicaragua, here is Survivor: What If? The rules are quite simple: I have you vote on which tribe (or after the merge, person) wins Reward and Immunity. In the tribal stage, the team that loses Immunity has a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council and you have to decide who from the losing tribe goes home. After the merge, you must vote on the person who doesn't have Immunty. If the person with the most votes during either tribal or individual Immunity has the Hidden Immunity Idol, the person with the second most votes will be voted out and the Idol will be flushed out.

Okay, here are the contestants, beginning with the Fans:

Allie,
Eddie,
Hope,
Julia,
Laura,
Matt,
Michael,
Reynold,
Shamar
& Sherri.

And now the Favorites:

Andrea,
Brandon the Crazy,
Brenda,
Cochran,
Corinne,
Dawn,
Erik,
Francesca,
Malcolm
& Phillip the Delusional

Your first task is to vote on which tribe wins Reward: Fans or Favorites. The challenge will be the same one as in the very first episode. The tribe with the most votes will win Reward, which will be flint and 20 pounds of beans.

I'll take votes until tonight or at latest, tomorrow morning.

Unfortunately, i got an Apple computer recently and don't know how to use it to put up my personal sig, so if someone knows how to do it, let me know.

Whoa! Just happened to be blowing through and saw this. Let's give the reward to the Fans.

Belle you may want to post in the other Survivor forums I think everyone is still in post-survivor recovery and may miss your game.


I should be watched....closely.

I'll announce it in the other forums and post the link to my game. After all, you're most likely right in thinking that everyone is in post-Survivor recovery.

At this point in the game, the fans are just fired up and raring to go, while the faves, who know each other, are somewhat warily sizing each other up. The fans should get the win with ease.

5. "Reward Challenge"
This was a little later than I had planned, but here are the results:

Allie, Eddie, Hope, Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael, Reynold, Shamar and Sherri all size each other up as they travel via outrigger. Meanwhile, a helicopter carries the Favorites, all of whom are presumably doing the same thing.

When the Fans arrive, Jeff Probst greet them and then reveal that they are competing against Favorites from previous seasons. First to join the party is Corrine from Gabon. She is soon joined by Erik the Idiot (due to giving up the Immunity necklace and being voted out as a result) from the first Fans vs. Favorites season! Then comes Brenda from Nicaragua. She is followed by Malcolm from the previous Philippines season (and everyone's wondering "Who?") Then Cochran and Dawn from South Pacific are next and are followed by Brandon the Crazy. Andrea from Redemption Island joins the group and finally Francesca and Phillip the Delusional, also from RI, join the group.

The Favorites get purple buffs while the Fans get orange buffs before Probst explains the Reward Challenge. Two members from each tribe will race out into the shallow water and grab a life ring off of a pole. Then they run back and grab onto a goal post -- while the teams also play defense on their goal posts! The first person with one hand on the ring and one on the post wins a point and the first tribe to four points wins the Reward of flint and 20 pounds of beans.

Erik and Dawn are first for the Favorites, while Julia and Shamar are first for the Fans. Erik sprints for the ring and grabs it but overthrows it and Julia gets it. Dawn's able to bring Julia down with a flying tackle but Shamar is able to beat Erik to the ring and the Fans' goalpost, so the Fans win a point.

Eddie and Hope are next and Andrea and Brandon are playing defense. Eddie's able to get to the ring and he's able to throw it to Hope. Hope does her best to dodge Andrea while Eddie wrestles Brandon to keep him from going after Hope. Though Andrea does grab hold of the ring, Hope is able to drag the ring to the Fans' goalpost, so the Fans win another point.

Michael and Sherri are up next for the Fans while Brenda and Phillip are up next for the Favorites. Michael races for the rings but Phillip attempts to ambush him. Sherri tries to help Michael out but Brenda attempts to keep her from doing so. Michael and Phillip grab hold of the ring, followed by Sherri and Brenda, but Phillip grabs Michael's ankle, drags the group towards the Favorites' goalpost, then grabs the ring and the goalpost.

It's 2-1 and it's now time for Matt and Laura to go up against Francesca and Cochran. Francesca runs towards the ring but Matt grabs hold of her. Cochran and Laura show up to help. Matt tackles Francesca to get her out of the way while Laura and Cochran continue to fight. Finally, Laura steps on Cochran's foot and when he lets go, she races towards the Fans' goalpost, thus ensuring a third point for the Favorites.

Finally, Allie and Reynold are up against Malcolm and Corinne and Malcolm have to stop them. Reynold grabs the ring but Malcolm gets hold of it as well. Corinne and Allie arrive to help, but during the free-for-all that follows, Corinne trips and turns her ankle! This allows Reynold to tackle Malcolm and Allie to run to the Fans' goal while a disabled Corinne can't stop her. Finally:

Probst: Fans win Reward!

The Fans cheer. Corinne apologizes for turning her ankle as she has it examined by Medical. They ultimately conclude that the ankle's not too bad but that she must be very careful with it for the next couple of days. Jeff tells both tribes to return to camp and so they do, with Corinne being supported by Malcolm.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, the Fans have won Reward. However, the Favorites won the Reward Challenge in the real game, so I had to have Laura step on Cochran's toe (like the orphans do with Miss Hanagan in Aniie) and then have Corinne turn an ankle (though not badly) in order to give the Fans the win.

Now it's time to decide which tribe will win Immunity (which is the same challenge as in the real game). I'll take votes until tomorrow, and the tribe with the most votes avoids a date with Probst at Tribal Council.

After a display of pi$$ poor teamwork and arguing by the Faves, the Fans win immunity with relative ease.

8. "Immunity Challenge #1"
LAST EDITED ON 05-18-13 AT 08:16 PM (EST)

With a unanimous vote, here are the results:

The Fans arrive at their new location and learn that their tribal name is Gota. Shamar appoints himself the leader of Gota, but there is discussion about whether to get fire or shelter first. Matt decides that since he's not much of a fire-maker, he's going to go for shelter. Allie, Eddie, Hope and Reynold all join him while the rest get to work on making fire.

Meanwhile, the Favorites arrive at their new location and learn that their tribal name is Bikal. Luckily, they have a machete and a bag of rice, which makes them feel a bit better. Phillip the Delusional puts Corinne on fire duty because of her ankle being sore. Brenda recruits Erik the Idiot for an alliance, while Andrea recruits Francesca.

Meanwhile, back on Gota, the tribe manages to get fire thanks to their flint. Allie and Reynold pair up, while Hope and Eddie pair up as well. Matt and Michael pair up and Julia, Laura, and Sherri all pair up. They recruit Shamar as well. In a confessional, Sherri reveals that the main reason they got Shamar is because he can be the "goat". Julia hopes they can get Matt and Michael on their side since she and Laura both noted that Allie and Reynold were paired up as were Hope and Eddie.

Back on Bikal, we see that Andrea, Brenda, Cochran, and Erik the Idiot have all obtained fire-making materials and Corinne is working on getting a fire started while the rest of the Faves work on the shelter. Phillip the Delusional is annoying Francesca (and the others with him) by complaining about the orientation of the shelter. Cochran hands Corinne his glasses to help her start the fire. It works and they have fire. Everyone is thrilled and cheer in delight.

Meanwhile, Phillip the Delusional decides to take a page out of Boston Rob's playbook and form an alliance -- as well as mini-alliances within the alliance. He is worried about Corinne's ankle, so he decides to recruit Brenda and Andrea as well as Cochran and Dawn. He then thinks that he should add Erik the Idiot. He wonders whether he should get rid of Francesca or Corinne first. On the one hand, Corinne's ankle might hinder them; on the other hand, he and Francesca dislike each other and he's sure Francesca will target him.

As things turn out, he's right. Francesca wants to get rid of Phillip the Delusional and is trying to work with Andrea to get rid of him. Andrea thinks it would be a good idea but also notes that Phillip would be an ideal goat to string along. She's not the only one, as Brenda and Erik the Idiot are thinking the same thing but are wondering if they can stand him long enough to have him face the jury. Similarly, Cochran and Dawn wonder if they should use Phillip as their ideal goat or Francesca.

Back at Gota, it's nighttime and Julia and Laura approach Matt and Michael. They point out that Allie is snuggling with Reynold and Hope is snuggling with Eddie (and we see this as well). We then hear Reynold do a confessional where he notes that he wants to get rid of the weak people. He wants to begin with Sherri as he thinks she's absolutely useless to the tribe.

The next day, we see Julia, Laura and Sherri talking. Laura had overheard Reynold telling Eddie that they, Allie and Hope had to get rid of Sherri. Sherri says that this should be the proof they need to get Matt and Michael to clearly join them since they can portray Reynold's desire to get rid of Sherri as a sign that he's going to get rid of the weak one by one.

The third day, Cochran has a terrible sunburn. He's doesn't want to be seen as a freak. At the same time, we see Corrine approach Malcolm and ask him to protect her. He says that he'll consider it. He says that he likes Corinne and wants to help her out, but he's unsure of whether he should protect a woman whose ankle is sore, even if it's not seriously hurt. We finally see Brandon the Crazy say that he wants to get rid of Phillip the Delusional ASAP.

Then the tribes arrive for the Immunity Challenge. Jeff Probst comments that Cochran's sunburn is the worst he'd ever seen. Then he explains the Immunity Challenge. Both tribes had to send four pairs up a scaffold to find crates stashed within it. Inside the crates are sandbags. The pairs had to toss the crates overboard and smash them on the mat below to reveal the sandbags. Once all the sandbags were collected, then the final pair had to fetch the sandbags and toss them into six targets. The first tribe to fill all six targets raises a flag and wins Immunity. If Bikal wins Immunity, they get flint.

And they're off! Cochran and Phillip the Delusional are up first for the Favorites while Shamar and Sherri are up first for the Fans. They all have to go up only one story. Cochran and Phillip the Delusional pull out a tiny lead for Dawn and Malcolm, but Hope and Eddie manage to tie things up for the third pairing -- which has Erik the Idiot and Francesca go up for the Faves and Laura and Reynold go up for the Fans.

Julia and Michael go up last for the Fans, leaving Allie and Matt to fetch and toss the bean bags. Andrea and Brenda go up last for the Faves, leaving Brandon the Crazy and Corinne to fetch and toss (Brandon the Crazy fetches and tosses to Corinne, who in turn tosses the things into the targets). It's all tied until it's time to fetch and toss. Allie proves to be a better tosser than Brandon the Crazy, and therefore:

Probst: Fans win Immunity! (The Fans cheer while the Faves all glare at Brandon the Crazy. The Fans grab the Immunity Idol.) Fans, you won Immunity and therefore are safe for three more days. Faves, you have a date with me at Tribal Council tonight, where someone will be the first one to go home. Head back to camp, and I'll see the Faves tonight.

The Fans head off cheering, while the Faves walk off dejectedly.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, the Fans won Immunity, which means the Faves have a date with Probst at Tribal Council tonight. I want you to decide who is going home tonight. You have four valid choices: Brandon the Crazy (who caused the loss at Immunity), Corinne (who has a turned ankle), Francesca and Phillip the Delusional. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest and the person who has the most votes will be voted out. If there is a tie, I'll do a tiebreaker and decide who is going home.

9. "Phillip"
Phillip a couple of us decided you have to go, another 39 days of you are too much for even the sanest of us. We give Boston Rob credit for being able to use you like a borrowed mule for so long but we can't. No way, no how.

Adios, Fillup.

10. "Tribal Council #1"
Okay, it's a brand-new day and only one person voted, so here are the results:

The Faves return to their campsite and begin discussing plans on who the boot will be. Phillip the Delusional is openly demanding that everyone vote out Francesca -- in front of Francesca. When Malcolm points out that Corinne is a better option because of her turned ankle, Phillip says, "Either you're with me or you're dead."

Once Philip the Delusional is gone (presumably out looking for a Hidden Immunity Idol), Brandon the Crazy says that he can't last a single day out there with Phillip. He wants Phillip the Delusional gone! Francesca is willing to go for it.

Corinne tells Malcolm that she thinks the pain in her ankle is decreasing rapidly enough that she can compete effectively in the next Reward or Immunity Challenge -- as long as the next challenge is in two days. They discuss the value of keeping Phillip the Delusional around as a goat vs. the risk to their sanity.

Cochran and Dawn do the same thing. Cochran really wants to keep Phillip the Delusional around because Cochran thinks he can control Phillip. However, Dawn is worried that spending enough time with Phillip will cause her to break down.

Brenda and Erik the Idiot discuss things. They think they can use Francesca as a shield and hide behind her and thus plan to go after Phillip the Delusional. Brenda thinks that Francesca would be a more stable shield than Phillip or Brandon the Crazy.

Phillip the Delusional returns and seems oblivious to the change in the atmosphere around him. He thinks that he's given his orders and everyone will obey him. We then see Andrea do a confessional where she says that had Phillip suggested Corinne or even Brandon the Crazy, she might have been inclined to stick with Phillip. But his vendetta against Francesca will be his doom.

Bikal marches in to Tribal Council, where Jeff Probst is waiting. He gives the obligatory speech about how fire is life, but they all know it and go to the fire pit to light their torches without really hearing him.

Probst begins by asking Brandon the Crazy about leaders. Brandon notes that there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Then he notes that someone is not going to be done in like last time. Probst reminds him that someone will be done in tonight and everyone chuckles.

Then Probst asks about Francesca's history with Phillip the Delusional. Though she tries to be low-key about it, Phillip says that he hates her and she's going to be the first one gone twice! Erik the Idiot says that nobody should count their chickens before they hatch and Brenda looks concerned, maybe because she fears that Erik revealed too much and Phillip might catch on.

Luckily, Phillip the Delusional seems to remain oblivious and Probst turns to Andrea. She makes a stock speech about how someone can be a good worker but still might be voted out. You never know. Brandon the Crazy looks concerned at this point.

Probst then turns to Cochran, who comments that plans can change in the middle of Tribal Council. After all, Boston Rob might put his hand on a person's shoulder while talking and bam! That person was gone. Malcolm then gets people laughing when he puts his hand on Cochran's shoulder!

Probst: With that said, it is time to vote. Andrea, you're up first.

Andrea votes first. Brandon the Crazy holds up a vote for Phillip the Delusional, saying that he needs to preserve his sanity. Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik the Idiot, Francesca and Malcolm all vote. Finally, Phillip votes for Francesca, saying that she'll make history.

Probst: I'll get the votes. (Francesca and Phillip the Delusional are shown.) If anyone has the Hidden Immunity Idol and wants to play it, now would be the time to do so. (Nobody stands up.) Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person will have to gather their belongings and leave the Council area immediately. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Francesca. Second vote ... Phillip. That's one vote Francesca, one vote Phillip.

Francesca and Phillip both nod.

Probst: Third vote ... Phillip. Fourth vote ... Phillip. That's three votes Phillip, one vote Francesca. (Phillip looks confused.) Fifth vote ... Phillip. Sixth vote ... Phillip. That's five votes Phillip, one vote Francesca.

Phillip is now glaring around him. Francesca is openly smiling.

Probst: Seventh vote ... the first person voted out of Survivor Caramoan ... Phillip. That's six, that's enough. You need to bring me your torch.

Phillip's boots make the loudest sound as he stomps over to his torch and brings it over to Probst.

Probst: Phillip, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Phillip's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Phillip stomps out as everyone is openly grinning, especially Brandon the Crazy.) Judging by your reactions, you couldn't wait to get rid of Phillip. Will this help you rebound? Only time will tell. Here's some flint (he throws it to Francesca, who grabs it.) Grab your torches and head back to camp. Good night.

The remaining Faves head back to camp. In his Final Words, Phillip the Delusional insists that he meant to be voted out and was just acting like he was mad. We see that only Phillip voted for Francesca -- everyone else voted for him.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Phillip the Delusional was voted out (and I'm not upset about that). Now it's time for the next Immunity Challenge. I want you to decide whether the Fans win again or the Faves finally win Immunity. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest and the tribe with the most votes avoids a date with Probst at Tribal Council.

I had other duties to attend to before I could play. PTTE & SIQ games are scored & posted. Practice Summary Writers thread began.

Now I can play. I love Phillip, I would have voted someone else. Now does Francesca take over SRU?

With the momentum the Fans have, led by Reynold and Eddie, they will win #2 Immunity Challenge.

13. "Round 2"
It's a brand-new day and again, there is only one vote, so I have to post the results:

Brandon the Crazy is relieved that Phillip the Delusional was voted out. He says that he would have gone insane to be with Phillip for even three more days, let alone 30-odd ones!

Cochran has a confessional where he reveals that he would rather have kept Phillip the Delusional as a goat but Dawn was getting tired of his antics and was really agreeing with Francesca's push to get rid of Phillip, so Cochran went along with the plan.

Corinne's ankle is feeling better. Malcolm is happy about that, but is more interested in flirting with Andrea. Andrea is playing along. Corinne is becoming jealous.

Brenda has formed an alliance with Erik the Idiot and Francesca and is planning to use them as goats -- if they last long enough to avoid being outnumbered at the merge. But she could use another ally to gain control in her own tribe, so she sees Corinne's jealousy and uses it in an attempt to pull Corinne into her alliance.

Meanwhile, at Gota, Shamar is becoming awfully lazy and although his allies are putting up with him, none of them are too happy with him. Julia says that although Shamar does do some work around camp, he doesn't do nearly enough! Yet, she, Laura, Matt, Michael and Sherri all need him until they have decimated the lovebirds (Allie, Reynold, Eddie and Hope).

We then see Julia, Laura, and Sherri talking. They're making plans on what to do when they get to Tribal Council. They think that they have to get rid of either Allie or Hope, depending upon who is the weaker of the two. Right now, it seems to be Allie.

Back at Bikal, Brandon the Crazy realizes that people aren't aligning with him! Cochran and Dawn are aligned, Andrea and Malcolm are aligned and Brenda, Erik the Idiot and Francesca are aligned. He tries to approach Corinne, as she is the only one who does not seem to be aligned with anyone, but she is reluctant to do so.

In a confessional, we find out why Corinne doesn't want to align with Brandon the Crazy: he goes from huge rage to sweetness at the drop of a hat.

And we get a glimpse of this when Brandon the Crazy can't find one of his socks! He is convinced that Cochran or Malcolm stole one of his socks and rants and raves at them, tearing through their stuff and basically overturning everything!

However, Brandon the Crazy feels genuine remorse when he finally finds his sock -- it was simply misplaced. He apologizes to Cochran and Malcolm but while they both accept his apology, they converse about getting rid of Brandon as soon as possible!

The next day, we see Jeff Probst on a beach. There's a quick glimpse of a shark cage out in the water with a life ring inside. We see both the Fans and the Faves approach the beach.

Probst: Come on in, Fans! (The Fans enter and prepare to see which Fave is gone.) Come on in, guys! (The Faves begin their approach.) Gota getting their first look at the new Bikal. Phillip voted out at the last Tribal Council. Michael, how do you feel about them voting out Phillip?

Michael: The Faves clearly came to play.

Probst then reveals that it's an Immunity Challenge. Three members from each tribe will race to a raft. Three more members will pull a rope that takes the raft to a platform further out in the water.

The three on the rafts then jump in the water and dive down to the shark cage. One swimmer at a time. There are nine life rings in the cage. They are held there by long sticks threaded through the cage.

Pulling out the sticks will release the rings. When all the rings are up and on the raft, the three on shore will pull it all in. THEN, the remaining three tribe members will, one at a time, use the life rings like giant quoits, trying to get ringers on posts.

One ring on each of three posts, wins immunity. And to go with the immunity, the winner gets a complete Survivor fishing kit including mask, fins, net, line, hooks, Hawaiian sling … the works. As Jeff says, they already have a boat.

The Fans choose to sit out Laura. Andrea, Brenda and Erik the Idiot go on the rafts for the Faves while Hope, Julia and Sherri go on the rafts for the Fans. Brandon the Crazy, Francesca and Malcolm are pulling for the Faves while Eddie, Reynold and Shamar do the pulling for the Fans. This leaves Cochran, Corinne and Dawn to toss the rings for the Faves and Allie, Matt and Michael to toss for the Fans.

Brandon the Crazy has Erik the Idiot on his raft and his raft falls slightly behind the other two, but otherwise it's a pretty even match-up with the Fans. However, things go off the rails for the Faves when it's time to toss the rings. Corinne winds up somehow overshooting, so:

Probst: Fans win Immunity and Reward! (The Fans cheer and hug.) Faves, it's another date with me for Tribal Council and someone will be going home tonight!

The Fans take their fishing kit and head off in celebration while the Faves head off in total defeat.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, the Fans have avoided a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council. Now I want you to decide which one of them will find the Hidden Immunity Idol -- Allie, Eddie, Hope, Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael, Reynold, Shamar or Sherri. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest and the person with the most votes will find the HII.

And I don't want just one vote! I want at least two -- maybe more! So please, vote!

As soon as the Fans get back from the IC, they all get busy doing various things. Several of them are busily searching for hidden immunity idols, and even without any clues, within the hour Reynold finds a hidden immunity idol as easily as Russhole used to do it. Eddie is with him when he finds it. They decide not to tell anybody else.

15. "RE: Round 2"
Well, there's still only one vote but it's a brand-new day, so here are the results:

Gota comes back to camp celebrating. They examine the reward and find a Hidden Immunity Idol clue but it's somewhat hard to read. Shamar goes off to lie down for a little, causing Eddie and Reynold to talk trash about him.

Julia and Laura go off to get some fruit while Matt & Michael head off to look for some water. As Shamar rests, the others begin searching for the Hidden Immunity Idol.

Meanwhile, back at Bikal, the blame game begins. Brandon the Crazy tries to hammer Corinne for her overshooting problems. Corinne gives back as good as she gets. The others know that it's between Brandon and Corinne for the vote.

Cochran and Dawn talk. Dawn hates Brandon the Crazy. She feels he's a cancer to the tribe and needs to go.

Andrea and Malcolm discuss whether they should vote out Brandon the Crazy or Corinne. On the one hand, Brandon is a threat to everyone's sanity. On the other hand, he didn't cost them the Immunity Challenge and he is a strong guy.

Back on Gota, Reynold is poking a hole in a tree trunk with a stick. Eddie is with him. Reynold finds the Hidden Immunity Idol and they agree not to tell anyone.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, now it's time for Bikal's second Tribal Council. I want you to decide who is going home this round. You have two choices, basically: Brandon the Crazy or Corinne. I'll take votes until tomorrow and the person with the most votes will be the second one sent to Sequesterville.

17. "Tribal Council 2"
I agree that while crazy is good, insane can only be tolerated for so long before you get tired of it. At least there wouldn't have been an intervention had the Faves gotten to go to Tribal Council before that point, and Brandon might have left with his sanity more intact. To rectify that, here are the results:

Corinne apologized for overtossing the results while Brandon the Crazy is out trying to fish. She urges the group to vote Brandon out for their own sanity.

Brenda is all for tossing Brandon the Crazy out. Since she has both Erik the Idiot and Francesca as potential goats, she's willing to toss out a goat that could be a threat to the tribe's sanity.

Cochran is also willing to toss Brandon the Crazy, since Dawn is beginning to break down -- again. He also thinks that Corinne could be a useful goat if necessary.

Malcolm is torn between her desire to toss Corinne for messing up the challenge and tossing a potential threat to the tribe's sanity. But Andrea tells him that everyone else is willing to toss Brandon the Crazy aside.

It's Tribal Council time again for the Faves. Jeff Probst asks what went wrong this time! Corinne says that she just screwed up. But she says that her ankle is healed and is ready to prove herself by helping the Faves win the next IC!

When asked who is the one that the Faves can do without, Dawn unhesitatingly points the finger at Brandon the Crazy, saying that he is a threat to the whole tribe's sanity and once he's gone, the tribe can come together and win challenges!

Brandon, of course, points the finger at Corinne, saying that she injured her ankle in the first Reward Challenge and lost the second Immunity Challenge for them! But the rest of the tribe is pointing out the many times they had to calm Brandon down before he could do something stupid -- though not always before he could say something stupid!

Probst has the tribe vote. Brandon the Crazy votes for Corinne, saying that she needs to go and rest her ankle. Corinne returns the favor, saying that Brandon is a threat to the tribe's sanity!

Probst: I'll go get the votes! (Brandon the Crazy and Corinne are shown.) If anyone has the Hidden Immunity Idol and wants to play it, now would be the time to do so.

Nobody moves.

Probst: Okay, once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will have to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. First vote ... Brandon. Second vote ... Corinne. One vote Brandon, one vote Corinne. Third vote ... Brandon. Two votes for Brandon. Fourth vote ... Brandon. That's three votes Brandon, one vote Corinne. Fifth vote ... Brandon. That's four votes Brandon.

Corinne is openly smiling. Brandon the Crazy looks stoic (for once).

Probst: Sixth vote ... the second person voted out of Survivor Caramoan ... Brandon. That's five, that's enough. You need to bring me your torch.

Brandon the Crazy gets up and nobody hugs him before he grabs his torch.

Probst: Brandon, the tribe has spoken. (Brandon's torch is snuffed.) It's time for you to go. (Brandon leaves quietly.) Well, you chose keeping the tribe sane over keeping a possible strong challenge player. Will it work out? We'll see. Grab your torches and head back to camp.

The openly relieved Faves head back as Brandon the Crazy says his last words. He admits that maybe it's best that he left now, as he's not sure he could have lasted very long in this group.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Brandon the Crazy is gone (and had the Faves gone to Tribal Council a second time before the intervention, he would have probably gone a whole lot sooner). Now it's time for Immunity (and Reward, I think). I want you to decide which tribe wins the next Immunity Challenge. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest and the tribe with the most votes wins Immunity, while the other tribe has a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council.

Personally, I'd like to see the Faves win. They've suffered enough.

The tribes arrive for the next challenge and Jiffy informs them it is a combined RC/IC. Having voted out their two most divisive forces, the Faves have come to this challenge in a much more harmonious state, while overconfidence and incipient showmances have begun to fray the ties that bind the Fans. The Fans don't explicitly throw the challenge, but they do make enough errors to lose, and the Faves walk away from the challenge laden with the immunity idol and the reward items, while most of the Fans are openly looking forward to the chance to cut loose a little dead weight.

21. "RC/IC!"
Well, we have one vote -- again. And I'm fine with it, so here are the results:

Bikal returns to camp by the light of the silver moon and they're celebrating!

Cochran comments that Brandon the Crazy was driving everyone crazy, so they had to get rid of him! The value of getting rid of a loose cannon outweighed the value of keeping him as a goat.

Brenda hopes that the Faves can come together now that Brandon the Crazy is with Phillip the Delusional at Sequesterville. She plans to bring Corinne into the alliance she has with Erik the Idiot and Francesca as a back-up goat in case one of her planned goats goes before the finals -- and to gain control of the tribe.

But she's not the only one planning to use Corinne in a plot to gain control. Cochran knows that he needs someone to join him in the finals -- if he and Dawn get that far -- and approaches Corinne with a Final 3 offer. Corinne is tempted and notes in her confessional that Brenda and Cochran are vying for her vote. She wonders which one she should join.

Meanwhile, at Gota, things aren't going well. Shamar is openly targeting Reynold and the two get into a shouting match before the allies of both have to cool them down.

Shamar wants to get rid of Reynold right away. However, Sherri sees two problems with this. First, Reynold is stronger than either Allie or Hope. Second, he might have the Hidden Immunity Idol and if he used it, one of their allies would go home.

So she secretly follows Reynold as he and Eddie go off to talk strategy. When Eddie asks who they should vote for, Reynold says they should vote for Shamar. Eddie isn't too upset with the idea, as Shamar is annoying everyone by now, but he suggests that they get two other people on board with the idea. Reynold says that he can always use the Hidden Immunity Idol to save himself or an ally, but Eddie points out that they still need one more vote, if not two. After all, he can count and he knows that 6 is more than 4.

Sherri notes in confessional that now that she knows Reynold has the Hidden Immunity Idol, she and her allies have to arrange things in such a way that one of the "Cool Kids" goes even if Reynold uses the HII.

Back at Bikal, we see Andrea and Malcolm looking for a Hidden Immunity Idol. And lo and behold, Malcolm finds one! Andrea is with him and they agree to keep it a secret.

But as Malcolm is finding a place to hide the HII, Brenda happens to come around the corner and sees this without either Andrea or Malcolm seeing her! She tells Erik the Idiot and Francesca about this and they agree that they have to form a Final 5 alliance with Andrea and Malcolm. This would get the HII on their side and they could then use it to gain control of Bikal!

But before we can see whether or not the group can snag Andrea and Malcolm, we head back to Gota where there are more problems! Shamar is now picking on Matt and Matt is giving back as good as he can get! Sherri pulls Shamar aside and gives him a good talking-to.

She flat-out tells Shamar that Reynold has the Hidden Immunity Idol. Shamar is mad at this news, but Sherri reminds him that he can vote for Reynold if he wants to if the others are all on board with getting rid of Allie or Hope. He just can't afford to make Matt and Michael mad at him for that might get him voted out!

Shamar agrees but notes in a confessional that the whole tribe is getting on his nerves. Julia, meanwhile, is wondering whether it's worth keeping Shamar around.

Meanwhile, it's time for a combined Reward and Immunity Challenge! There are two lines of raised platforms or bridges on the sand. Offshore, there are two big cages up above the surface of the water.

Jeff Probst: Come on in, Gota! (Gota enters.) Come on in, Bikal! (As Bikal enters,) Gota is getting their first look at the new Bikal tribe. Brandon was voted out at the last Tribal Council. This is for Immunity. You have to race out in the water and climb into your large cage. Inside each of your cages is a very heavy chest! There is a door in the side of the cage, down at the bottom. It is tied shut. The tribe must untie the door and open it, then drag the chest through the opening and back to shore. Once onshore, you must hoist the chest onto the first bridge. You must use grapples to hook the missing sections and pull them back into place before you can move the chest across the bridge. At the end of the bridge, they have to get the chest off the bridge, across some sand, and onto a platform. First chest on its platform, wins. Want to know what your extra reward is?

Both tribes agree, so Probst reveals that the winning tribe will get two chairs, some pillows, a blanket, tarp and some rope. Gota chooses to sit out Allie and Sherri since Laura sat out the previous RC/IC. Unfortunately, Laura is a real non-swimmer and as a result, Bikal gets into the cage first. Worse, with Brandon the Crazy and Phillip the Delusional gone, Bikal really has their act together. As a result, they retain their tiny lead when both tribes get to the platforms. And worst of all, while Reynold is able to get the first section taken care of, Shamar keeps missing while Malcolm, Erik the Idiot and Francesca work as a team, so:

Probst: Faves win Immunity and Reward! (The Faves celebrate while most of the Fans glare at Shamar.) Faves, you have Immunity and are safe from Tribal Council for a few days. Fans, you have your first date with me at Tribal Council. Somebody will be voted out tonight. Head back to camp and Fans, I'll see you at Tribal.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, the Faves have won Immunity and I let Malcolm have the Hidden Immunity Idol since that showed up in this section as well. The Fans have a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council. You must decide who will be voted out. The main candidates are Allie, Hope and Shamar. I want you to decide which one of those three will be voted out and whether Reynold will play his HII at TC. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest and whoever has the most votes will be voted out, so please vote!

22. "RE: RC/IC!"
When they get back to camp, the Fans begin busily politicking in small groups. As they talk, then split up and go talk to others, most of the tribe gets mentioned, but early talk of booting Eddie or Reynold doesn't go anywhere after the IC loss, as they all want to maintain their numbers advantage. The incipient showmances are an issue, however, and Allie and Hope get serious boot talk, as does lazy pain in the a$$ Shamar. The tribe shows up at TC, Probst spends a couple hours stirring the t#rds, and they vote. Jiffy gives the usual spiel about the HII, Reynold does not play his, and the tribe, most of whom know Reynold has the HII, vote out Allie, with Shamar getting the rest of the votes, which pi$$e$ him off to no end.

23. "RE: RC/IC!"
Couples always are a target and any supposed Fan would know that little rule. Knowing Reynold has an idol, his name is automatically entered into the bootee pool. Then Shamar's name, finally the majority realize they need strength and the two +1's Hope and Allie become targets. Since it's early in the showmance, Allie gets the nod and Reynold and Shamu live to eat more beans & rice.

Allie, bring me your torch.



I should be watched....closely.

24. "RE: RC/IC!"
With one vote (again), here are the results:

Back at Gota, the plotting begins. Allie, Eddie, Hope and Reynold are all convinced that Shamar has to go. They point out the fact that he kept missing when it came time to get the extra sections on the bridge and Reynold also points out that Shamar is like Phillip the Delusional -- and they all saw what happened to Phillip.

However, the incipient showmances is the main topic with the other six -- well, with Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael and Sherri, as Shamar is resting. He notes that he got a piece of bamboo in his finger and he just got it out, but he's concerned about the possibility that it might be infected.

Matt and Michael don't want to get rid of Eddie and Reynold because he wants to keep their numerical advantage. Sherri agrees, pointing out that Reynold has the Hidden Immunity Idol so that wouldn't work anyway. But they could try to convince him that he is the target so he can flush it out while targeting the girl that's closest to him, which would be Allie.

Sherri tells Shamar that they will be voting out Reynold, hoping to have him spread the word around and thus misdirect the "cool kids" away from the real target -- Allie. And Shamar plays his part well, taunting Reynold with the fact that he's going home and there's nothing he can do about it.

Reynold and Eddie talk about whether Reynold should use the HII. Eddie suggests that maybe Reynold should use it -- on Allie. He thinks that even if Shamar is saying that Reynold is the target, the others would know that they need Reynold's strength. But Reynold is cocky. He thinks the others are really planning to get rid of Shamar, so he doesn't need to use it on Allie -- or on himself.

Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael and Sherri all talk things over shortly before going to Tribal Council. The plan is to have Shamar vote for Reynold and the rest of them are to vote for Allie. They want to tell Shamar the plan, but they are afraid he'll give the whole plan away at T.C. and they don't want to risk that.

The Fans arrive for their first Tribal Council and Jeff Probst has them light their torches while using the standard spiel about how fire represents life. He then begins by asking the tribe how things were at their tribe. Reynold begins complaining about how lazy Shamar was and how he rested all the time!

When asked about it, Shamar says that he felt so tired all the time, so that was why he rested all the time. He then reveals that the whole tribe knows that Allie, Eddie, Hope and Reynold all hang out together and that they're going after Reynold since they think he is the ringleader.

However, Reynold points out that he helps win challenges for Gota and they need his strength! Also, at least he works hard, unlike Shamar. He also points out that Shamar fouled up the second Reward/Immunity Challenge while Allie and Hope had never really fouled up a challenge!

When Probst asks about whether Allie or Hope feels safe after what Shamar said, Hope says that she doesn't feel safe. Allie, however, thinks that Shamar is so lazy that the others will be happy to get rid of him before turning on her, Eddie, Hope and Reynold.

Probst: It is time to vote. Allie, you're up first.

Allie votes, followed by Eddie and then Hope. Julia holds up a vote for Allie, saying that she likes Allie but Allie picked the wrong side. Laura, Matt and Michael all vote before Reynold holds up a vote for Shamar, saying that he's a waste of space. Shamar returns the favor, saying that Reynold is a ringleader and a threat. Sherri is the last to vote.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Allie, Reynold and Shamar are all shown.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so.

Reynold looks hesitant for an instant, but doesn't move.

Probst: All right. Once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Reynold. Second vote ... Shamar. One vote Reynold, one vote Shamar. Third vote ... Allie. We're tied. One vote Allie, one vote Reynold, one vote Shamar.

Allie, Reynold and Shamar all look surprised. Hope and Eddie look worried.

Fourth vote ... Allie. (Allie looks concerned now.) Fifth vote ... Shamar. Two votes Allie, two votes Shamar, one vote Reynold. (Reynold looks mad.) Sixth vote ... Allie. Seventh vote ... Shamar. We're tied again. Three votes Allie, three votes Shamar, one vote Reynold. Eighth vote ... Allie. Four votes Allie. NInth vote ... Shamar. Four votes Allie, four votes Shamar, one vote Reynold, one vote left.

Probst pulls it out as Allie and Shamar wait.

Probst: The third person voted out of Survivor: Caramoan ... Allie. Will you bring me your torch?

Allie hugs Reynold, then Eddie and finally Hope before getting up to grab her torch. As she heads over to Probst, Reynold hits his head, seemingly in frustration.

Probst: Allie, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs Allie's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Allie waves good-bye as she heads out.) Well, you guys chose to keep a strong but lazy guy who apparently lost you a challenge. Let's see how that works out. Grab your torches and head back to camp.

Gota grabs their torches and all head back. In her final words, Allie says that she and Reynold should have listened to Eddie and Hope and have Reynold use his HII on her. She hopes that Shamar soon joins her.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Allie is gone. Next up is a Reward Challenge. I want you to decide which tribe will win it -- the Fans or the Faves. I'll take votes until tomorrow and the tribe with the most votes will win Reward.

25. "RE: RC/IC!"
The tribes show up for the next challenge, and the Faves take note that the Fans have axed Allie. JiffyProbe tells them it is a reward challenge, does the "wanna know what you're playing for" spiel, and reveals the reward. Jiffy explains the challenge, they run it with Shamar effing it up again and several other Fans performing poorly as well, and the Faves royally kick their a$$e$. The victorious Faves collect their reward and are the picture of harmony as they depart. The Fans...ehhh, no harmony there. When they get back to camp a huge argument breaks out, with fat lazy Shamar in the middle of it, and the argument goes on for a couple hours till Shamar tells them all to eff off and walks off.

26. "Episode 4 Reward Challenge"
Okay, here is the next part:

Gota returns from Tribal Council. Eddie says that it's become clear that the "Cool Kids" are on the outs. They've got to get some allies on their side to stave off the inevitable elimination or hope for a tribal switch.

Meanwhile, Reynold says that they have to convince the others that Shamar's laziness and attitude outweighs his strength. Unfortunately, Eddie is unsure whether or not that will work. But he notes that if the others plan to get rid of the weaker members of the "Cool Kids", at least he and Reynold have some time to survive.

Shamar is wondering if he's going to be able to stick around much longer. He thinks his finger might be infected -- badly. Sherri tries to give him a pep talk and it helps a little bit.

Julia says in a confessional that if Shamar can't stay around any longer, then they have to keep Matt and Michael on their side. Hope also notes in a confessional that the "Cool Kids" might have some hope if Shamar has to leave or if he quits.

Laura is seen talking to Matt and Michael. She reminds them that even if one showmance is broken up, another still is around. They have to break the other one up.

It's Day 8 at Bikal. Andrea and Malcolm are talking. Apparently Brenda had informed them that she was aware they had the Hidden Immunity Idol and wanted to form a Final 5 alliance with them in exchange for the protection of the HII. If Andrea and Malcolm didn't agree, Brenda threatened to reveal the existence of the HII to the whole tribe and have it be flushed out.

Malcolm thinks that their best chance of survival is to agree to the Final 5 alliance. Andrea isn't so sure, as she realizes she and Malcolm are threats in the endgame, but Malcolm reminds her that they have to get to the endgame before they can worry about being threats. Which means they have to make the merge first.

Meanwhile, Dawn is beginning to feel overwhelmed. She's wondering if she can stick around much longer. Cochran tries to give her a pick-me-up and it seems to work. Corinne notes that she has to choose between Cochran and Dawn or Brenda, Erik the Idiot and Francesca. She's leaning towards Cochran and Dawn but thiks that the other three are stronger overall.

It's time for a Reward Challenge! It's out on the water. There is a procession of colored platforms parked out in the water. Bikal enters first and waits.

Jeff Probst: Come on in, guys! (Gota enters.) Bikal is getting a good look at the new Gota tribe. Allie voted out in the next Tribal Cuncil. (The Faves look slightly surprised but someone is heard saying "Alliances".) Ready to get to today's Reward Challenge?

Everyone agrees.

Probst: Here is how it will work. Two team members will be chosen to go out to the first and second platforms. Then, the team will have to transport them to the third platform. When both are on platform three, the whole tribe swims to platform four which is taller but has a very small standing surface. They have to get the whole tribe up on the platform or above the platform, but not in the water or on the legs of the structure. First tribe to succeed wins. Want to know what you're playing for?

Everyone agrees.

Probst: A local bushman will come to your camp. He will serve as a camp inspector and a mentor on how to live better. He will also bring a chicken and some eggs.

The Fans have to sit someone out and choose Laura. Brenda goes up first for the Faves and Julia for the Fans. Andrea joins Brenda and Hope joins the Fans. The Faves use their hands and knees and are first to platform three. Shamar is using a bad technique and thus they fall behind.

The Faves swim to platform four but Cochran isn't the best swimmer, so this allows the Fans to catch up a bit, but on the final platform:

Probst: Bikal wins Reward! (The Faves all celebrate.) Bikal, your reward is waiting for you at camp. Gota, I have nothing for you. Head back to camp and I'll see you at the next Immunity Challenge!

Bikal heads off, celebrating while Gota heads off full of gloom.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, the Faves have won the Reward. Now before Immunity, somebody from Gota will be medically evacuated. In the real game, it was Shamar. Will it be him again or will it be someone else? I'll take votes until tomorrow at the earliest and the person with the most votes (or with just one vote) will be gone, so please vote!

27. "RE: Episode 4 Reward Challenge"
The Fans arrive back at camp and a discussion of Shamar ensues. He is complaining that his finger hurts, and several of the others are complaining that he effed up another challenge, and what good is his strength if he's gonna keep effing up challenges? Eddie looks at Shamar's finger and thinks it does look pretty bad and that maybe Medical oughta at least look at it, and some of the others are telling Sherri that if his attitude and performance are both that bad, what good does it really do to talk him out of quitting? After a few hours of this, Shamar asks for Medical to look at his finger. He says he's not going to quit but he's not going to risk his health if he really has a problem. Medical and JiffyProbe show up as darkness nears, and Medical says the finger really is bad and Shamar could get seriously ill if he isn't given antibiotics for several days to wipe the infection out, and they pull him out of the game. The tribe says its goodbyes and Shamar gets on the boat with Jiffy and Medical and leaves. The tribe hates to lose his strength, but most of them agree that the tribe will be more harmonious without him.

Shamar is a Marine, though, and will play through the pain. Sherri wears herself out waiting on him, and hates it. She's not used to waiting, she's used to bossing around the wait staff and stealing their tips. To get her revenge on Shamar for forcing her to do this, while he is comatose, she scratches him on the face and spits in his eye. He will learn his place! But she is personally toxic and the eye is allergic to her flem, becomes inflamed.

While going off into the jungle for a pit stop a few days before,


blew out her flip-flop and stepped on a pop-top. That cut on her foot was the most interesting part of her "Survivor What If" experience but now that the cut was grossing everyone out and she was back to excruciatingly boring again. Someone was going to call medical, when they got around to it.

30. "A Med-Evac"
Well, we have a majority, so here are the results (a little late, sorry):

Once the Fans arrive back at Gota camp, Reynold blames Shamar, saying that it was Shamar's bad technique which caused them to lose. Shamar gets into a real yelling match with Reynold before it is broken up.

Meantime, at the Bikal camp, our bushman mentor has arrived. His name may be Tata. Malcolm describes him as four feet tall, about sixty years old and all knotted up with muscle. He hits the beach going strong. He doesn’t mess around.

He also speaks English with a delightful accent. Malcolm, again, says that he sounds like Gollum. He first shows them how to cook rice in a section of green bamboo. 15 minutes, it’s done. But “be careful. It’s very hot.” Cochran calls it “dinner and a show” because Tata's cooking is so entertaining.

Over at gloomy Gota, Shamar is resting -- again. And when he's not sleeping, he's complaining about his finger. He thinks his finger's become infected, so as a result he expects the rest of the tribe to bring him rice once a day!

Needless to say, that doesn't go over well with the others. Laura says “Are you actually serious? Be my slave so I don't have to work my finger?” Hope is openly hoping that this causes the others to get rid of Shamar before her!

Sherri brings over some food for him, even though she says that she never waited on her husband. But while she does so, she accidentally gets something into Shamar's eye! And since he isn't wearing contacts (or glasses, for that matter), it scratched his eyeball! So Shamar's eye hurts.

Sherri apologizes, but the rest of the tribe doesn't care. Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael and above all, Sherri, don't want to vote him out too soon. Eddie, Hope and Reynold all want him gone!

After a tropical storm and a miserable night in the shelter, the Fans take stock of the situation. While they have fishing gear, they're cold, wet and miserable. And Shamar is seriously thinking about quitting! Reynold is practically yelling at the others, "Get rid of Shamar, now!"

Fortunately for Reynold, Shamar's eye has become red and puffy. And Shamar's finger is hurting him. He's more concerned for his eye than for his finger, however, and he wants Medical to look it over. Reynold is openly hoping that Shamar will have to go!

Here comes the Jeff Boat. Jeff Probst and the medical team wade ashore and Probst notes that Shamar doesn't look too good. The medic also notes that Shamar's eye is red and puffy and thinks he got a scratched cornea. Sherri feels really guilty, since she knows it was probably her fault if he had a scratched cornea.

As the medic pops in an orange-colored dye and Shamar's finger is also looked at, Sherri explains how she thinks Shamar got something in his eye. She expresses her feelings of guilt, but Julia points out that Shamar didn't use glasses or contacts, so Sherri isn't entirely to blame.

The verdict is in. Shamar has not one, but two deep scratches on his cornea. Also, his finger needs to be worked on. The medic is going to pull him from the game. When Shamar hears the bad news, he cries. The tribe is brought in to say their good-byes. As Shamar mouths platitudes, everyone wishes him well. But while the backs of Probst, Shamar, and the medical team are turned, Reynold goes into a happy dance.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Shamar has been med-evaced -- again. Now it's time for the next Immunity Challenge. I want you to decide which tribe will win -- Bikal (the Faves) or Gota (the Fans). The tribe with the most votes will avoid a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

31. "RE: A Med-Evac"
The tribes arrive for the next immunity challenge, and Bikal notes that Gota is minus Shamar. JiffyProbe explains the medevac, Malcolm says under his breath, "Yeah, right, tell me another one", and Jiffy says to Gota, "Give it up", and they turn over the immunity idol. He explains the challenge, and they go at it. Both tribes are in a good frame of mind, having gotten rid of their worst pains in the patoot, and both are playing well. After a close, hard fought contest, Gota comes away with a well earned victory, and Bikal earns a date at TC.

Go Go Gota! Yeah, let's give them a chance, send Bikal to TC.

Back at Bikal Malcolm and Corinne go on an idol hunt and discuss which challenge liability to vote off. Fran corners Brenda and Erik and tells them Cochran has to go, she then runs off to inform Dawn and Andrea. Finds Cochran and Andrea plotting behind her back, then finds Dawn and tells her Cochran and Andrea are plotting something, Cochran's a back-stabber and has to go. Gives Dawn a hug because she looks upset, tells her everything's going to be okay, then runs off to give a confessional. Falls down on the way and almost eats a rock. "Whew! That was a close one!" she says in confessional. "Cochran better pack his bag tonight!" Dawn finds Cochran tells him Fran is gunning for him.

33. "Episode 4 Immunity Challenge"
Okay, it's a unanimous vote. And btw, Round Robin, Bikal has to hand over the regular Immunity Idol, not Gota! Anyway:

Bikal arrives at the Immunity Challenge on schedule.

Jeff Probst: Come on in, Gota! (As the Fans enter) Bikal getting a surprising look at the new Gota. Shamar had to be med-evaced and will no longer be in the game. (Most of the Faves look stunned, although Malcolm looks a bit confused.) Gota, care to explain how Shamar got injured?

Sherri: He already had gotten a piece of bamboo in his finger and we think it might have been infected, but I accidentally got something in his eye and it scratched his cornea. (Malcolm is heard muttering, "Yeah, right. Tell me another one.") It's true!

The rest of Gota -- even Reynold -- back Sherri up, so Malcolm is silenced. Probst then explains the Immunity Challenge. Five members will, one at a time, swim to a platform quite a distance out in the water. They will climb up on the platform and somehow break tiles that are hanging.

A broken tile will release a tennis ball shaped object with a key attached. The keys have to be brought to shore where the two remaining tribe members will use them to unlock a chest full of sandbags. The sandbags then have to be hurled at a wall made of two layers of bricks standing on end. When all the bricks have been cleared from the little board they are sitting on, the tribe wins -- and avoids a date with Probst at Tribal Council to boot.

Cochran and Dawn are working with the locks for the Faves. Sherri and Laura are working with the locks for the Fans. First up are Erik the Idiot and Hope. They swim to a series of floats and move along to a floating dock from which they dive back into the water to swim to the main platform. Both stumble but manage to get to the main platform in a dead heat. Erik shatters his tile, as does Hope and they swim back in a dead heat.

When Erik and Hope reach shore, Francesca runs out for Bikal and Matt runs out for Gota. Francesca practically attacks the floats and thus takes the lead over Matt, although Julia isn't far behind. Brenda is up next for the Faves while Eddie is up next for the Fans. Both get their keys and move on.

Although the Faves still are in the lead, Brenda's hard fall ensures that Julia is right behind Andrea when it's time for them to take the course. After Andrea and Julia swim back, Corinne and Michael take the course. Corinne struggles a bit, ensuring that Gota can now make things a dead heat. Finally, Malcolm and Reynold take the course.

Finally, the keys are onshore and Cochran and Dawn work on the locks for the Faves while Sherri and Laura work on them for the Fans. Sherri is having a lot of good luck while Cochran is having a lot of bad luck, so the Fans open their chest first. Then Laura throws for the Fans while Dawn throws for the Faves once Bikal is ready. It's a close match but:

Probst: Gota wins Immunity! (The Fans celebrate while Bikal looks gloomy. Gota gains the regular II.) Gota, you have Immunity and are safe from the vote. Bikal, you have a date with me at Tribal Council tonight. Somebody will be going home. You have the rest of the day to think about it. Head on back and I'll see you at Tribal.

Gota heads out to celebrate, while Bikal heads back to plot.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Bikal has to vote out somebody at Tribal Council. Now it's time for you to decide who will be going home -- Andrea, Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik the Idiot or Francesca. Malcolm has the HII so he's safe but you can vote on whether the tribe tries to flush it out. Here is how things are: Andrea, Brenda, Erik the Idiot, Francesca and Malcolm are in one group because Brenda found out about the HII and used it to get Andrea and Malcolm to join her group. Cochran and Dawn are in another group and I think Corinne will join their group.

Anyway, the person with the most votes will be going home. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

34. "RE: Episode 4 Immunity Challenge"
As Bikal arrives back at camp, they quickly begin busily plotting. Before the IC the groups had ostensibly been as stated in Belle Book's post, but most of the Faves are in reality playing both sides of the fence. Fran makes the classic mistakes of doing so a little too openly and of telling the wrong people the wrong things. This causes the rest of Bikal to lose trust in her, and that night at tribal, Franceska is voted out 7-1, with her vote going to Andrea.

35. "Tribal Council #5"
Okay, I have only one vote but it's a brand-new day, so here goes:

Gota returns from the Immunity Challenge cheering. Hope is especially relieved since she is sure that had they lost, she would have been on the chopping block and would most likely have gone home!

Meanwhile, the Faves return to gloom on Bikal. In a confessional, Brenda reveals that she wants to get rid of Cochran because he's the weakest one, especially when it comes to swimming challenges and because he's a real schemer.

However, she has to change plans when Dawn openly wishes she were back home. So Brenda gathers Andrea, Erik the Idiot, Francesca and Malcolm together and suggests that they get rid of Dawn, since she's openly wanting to go home.

Unfortunately for Brenda, when Andrea goes to start the fire and Malcolm goes to get some water, Francesca begins to put her foot in her mouth by pushing for the group to flush Malcolm's Hidden Idol and get rid of Andrea. Brenda does her best to convince Francesca not to do such a dumb thing, but when Cochran shows up Francesca starts pushing for getting rid of Andrea and is about to reveal the fact that Malcolm has the HII but Brenda urges Francesca to get some fruit for the tribe.

Brenda realizes that Francesca has become a loose cannon and tells Cochran that she is ready to cut Francesca loose this time! Cochran is delighted and tells Dawn that she's safe for tonight. Meanwhile, Brenda grabs Andrea, Erik the Idiot and Malcolm and tells Andrea and Malcolm about Francesca's stupidity. Therefore, Francesca is going.

Knowing that she has to replace Francesca, Brenda grabs Corinne and informs her of the state of affairs and offers her Francesca's place in the alliance. Corinne agrees, no doubt thinking "As long as it isn't me." Then Brenda heads over to Francesca in an effort to smooth over the damage. She tells Francesca that she has agreed that Andrea is too cute and must go. So they'll let Andrea think that Dawn is the target but really get rid of Andrea!

Francesca is a happy camper and says that Andrea is going down! Cochran hopes that Dawn can hold it together long enough to make the merge, let alone the Final 3. And finally, Brenda says that she would rather have kept Francesca as a goat but there are times when a goat is too much of a loose cannon and has to be cut.

At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst asks how the tribe is doing without Brandon the Crazy and Phillip the Delusional around. Erik the Idiot says "Much, much better!" Brenda agrees, saying that with the removal of the two pains-in-the-neck, life is much calmer and more harmonious in many ways.

Probst naturally pushes and Andrea reveals that Dawn is really breaking down. When asked about it, Dawn says that she's homesick but she's done this before so she knows that she can do it again.

When asked about any showmances, Francesca claims that Andrea and Malcolm are a showmance. She would also have mentioned the HII except that Andrea insists that Malcolm is just a friend. Malcolm also denies a showmance is going on between him and Andrea but slips up enough to say that if she flirts with him, he'll respond.

With that, it's time to vote. Francesca votes for Andrea and Andrea returns the favor. We don't see the others vote.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Andrea and Francesca both look on.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so. (While Francesca looks at Malcolm, he doesn't move.) Okay, once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Andrea. (Andrea nods.) Second vote ... Francesca. One vote Andrea, one vote Francesca. Third vote ... Francesca. Two votes Francesca. Fourth vote ... Francesca.

This is when Francesca reacts visibly.

Probst: That's three votes Francesca, one vote Andrea. Fifth vote ... Francesca. Four votes Francesca. Sixth vote ... the fourth person voted out and the fifth gone from the game ... Francesca. That's five, that's enough. You need to bring me your torch.

Francesca glares at the others as she grabs her torch.

Probst: Francesca, the tribe has spoken. (Francesca's torch is snuffed.) Time for you to go. (Francesca stomps out.) Well, instead of breaking up a couple or getting rid of someone who was thinking of quitting, you got rid of a tough player. Time will reveal whether or not you made the right decision. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Good night.

As the Faves leave Tribal Council, Francesca wonders if she should have just stuck to the plan to get rid of Dawn. But she notes that at least she outlasted Phillip the Delusional and will let him know that once she sees him.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Francesca is gone. Next up is a Reward Challenge. I want you to decide which tribe wins -- the Faves or the Fans. The tribe with the most votes will win Reward. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

36. "RE: Tribal Council #5"
The tribes show up for the next challenge, which is for reward. Gota notes that Franceska has gotten the ax from Bikal, and Reynold looks at Eddie and says, "Holy moley, them people are playing mighty hard mighty early over there." Cochran gives him a dirty look, and Dawn says, "For a million bucks I bet you guys aren't exactly playing Go Fish on your side either". A few minutes of discussion ensues, then Probst does the standard RC spiel, explains the challenge, and they begin. Gota promptly opens a large barrel of whip-a$$ on Bikal, and the challenge is over in short order. Gota walks out with their reward stuff, obviously in a very good mood. Bikal leaves, but not before an editorial comment from Probst about the wisdom of getting rid of strong players, obviously referring to their ejection of Franceska, and Erik the Idiot says, "Hey, Jeff, have you ever played? Till you do, how about cutting out the badmouthing?" A brief argument between the two ensues, then when Bikal gets back to camp they argue like hell for a while, with several of the others giving Erik hell for being stupid enough to pi$$ off the host, and Erik saying he's tired of taking Jiffy's $hit. This goes on for some time, and Erik says, "I don't give a flying f--- if I get the worst edit in the history of this show, I'm not eating any more of that son of a b!tch's $hit, and if you don't like it, you know what you can do about it," and he walks off down the beach, leaving his tribemates arguing with each other behind him.

Heh. If this keeps up, Brenda's going to be losing her planned goats left and right as she wanted to keep Francesca around as a goat until Francesca began acting like a real loose cannon.

38. "RE: Tribal Council #5"
Later towards evening Cochran asks why they are still eating according to Phillip's rationing scheme. There are fewer of them now, they can afford bigger portions without having to go through Phillip. They all agree and decide to have a meal of beans. Erik nods, "Going hungry and losing challenges, that's Phillip logic We need to have a winning plan."

39. "Episode 6 Reward Challenge"
Okay, with basically two votes, here are the results, complete with a little funny bit:

When the Faves return to Bikal, Cochran is relieved that Dawn is still in the game. He needs her as his shield.

Brenda wishes Francesca had not turned on Andrea. If she had not, they would have voted out Dawn and gotten rid of a weak link. Instead, they had to let Francesca go.

We then hear a thunderstorm. Dawn is beginning to break down -- again. She now says that the next time they go to Tribal Council, she's going to volunteer for the chop.

Cochran is trying his hardest to raise her spirits and keep her head in the game, but he is having a hard time getting through to Dawn. In a confessional, Andrea says that she is having as hard a time sleeping as Dawn is, but she's not breaking down.

Meanwhile, Gota is trying to sleep as well. Hope says that they need to avoid going to Tribal Council or else she's getting the chop. Sherri comments that it's tougher than it looks on T.V. but she's not Kathy from the first Fans vs. Favorites season. She's not going to quit.

The next morning, we head back to Bikal. Cochran is trying to cheer Dawn up and it seems to be working -- for now. But Malcolm notes that Dawn might break down yet again and he's getting tired of it!

And now we head to the Reward Challenge. It’s our usual damp sand patch. It looks like it might be a multi-stage event. There is also a huge pile of raw coconuts. The Fans head in and look excited yet determined.

Jeff Probst: Come on in, Faves! (The Faves march in.) Gota getting their first look at the new Bikal. Francesca was voted out at the last Tribal Council.

Reynold whispers "They're sure playing hard!" However, the Faves hear this because it's a stage whisper and Corinne says "I'll bet you guys aren't playing 'Go Fish' over there, either!" Here’s the set up. There are four big nets. Each is suspended from overhead by a rope on a pully.

Two members from each tribe each hold the rope to hold their net up in the air. The non-rope-holding members of the other tribe shoot coconuts into the nets. The nets will get heavy and hard to hold. The last rope-holder standing wins reward. The prize is essentially a backyard barbeque: sausage, steak, veggies, breads, condiments and wine. Sherri volunteers to sit this one out for the Fans.

Dawn and Erik the Idiot are holding things up for the Faves while Matt and Michael hold things up for the Fans. The Fans decide to gang up first on Erik while the Faves decide to gang up on Matt. Julia, Eddie and Reynold are the best Fans while Malcolm is the best Fave. Erik goes down first, but soon so does Matt. Dawn and Michael struggle to hold on but finally one goes down:

Probst: Gota wins Reward! (The Fans cheer since this is a great Reward for them.) Bikal, looks like your decision to get rid of Francesca didn't work out so well.

Erik the Idiot: You try playing the game! Until then, stop the bad-mouthing!

Before Erik can put his foot in his mouth any further, Brenda interrupts to say that if Francesca hadn't been a loose cannon, they would have kept her. Probst concedes the point and sends Bikal away. Erik the Idiot is about to complain further but Brenda whispers to him, "Shut up! I need you!"

****************************************************************************************

Okay, the Fans won the Reward. Now it's going to be the epic meltdown. Last time, it was Brandon the Crazy (or Insane) that melted down so badly that the Faves decided to forfeit the Immunity Challenge. Now you have to decide who will be the one having the epic meltdown. The choices are between Dawn, Erik the Idiot or possibly a member of Gota. The person with the most votes by tomorrow will be shown the door, so please remember to vote!

40. "RE: Episode 6 Reward Challenge"
The arguing about the wisdom of Erik getting in a pi$$ing match with a skunk, er, Probst, keeps flaring up over and over again well into the night, then refires in the morning. It continues more or less all day, and they think it has settled down for the night, but the following morning, with a probable immunity challenge looming, it erupts into an all out row, with Erik the Idiot and Brenda telling each other to f--- off and Dawn threatening to quit due to all the commotion. And Malcolm finds that the rice smells like it has been urinated in, and the beans are spilled all over the ground with what looks like human fecal matter right in the middle of it. He reports this finding to the tribe and Brenda accuses Erik of having done it. Erik hotly denies it and calls Brenda a b!tch and Malcolm a liar. Malcolm says, "You're the GD liar, Erik, nobody else here is pi$$ed off enough at the rest of us to have done it", and Erik punches him, knocking him on his a$$. Probst shows up with the quit boat a couple hours later with two large Survivor crew members with him, the tribe reports what happened to him, and Erik denies it. Probst says, "No point denying it, Erik, the camera crew captured all the evidence both of you fouling the food supply and of you punching Malcolm." Probst throws Erik out of the game, and he and the two crew members take him away. The immunity challenge is cancelled and Probst goes to Gota camp to explain what happened. Erik is immediately sent home, and with him gone, Dawn's mood improves enough that she for the moment stops threatening to quit.

41. "The epic meltdown"
Well, here are the results:

The Fans are enjoying their barbeque. Sherri reveals that the reason why she was asked to sit out the Reward Challenge was because they had practiced shooting baskets (with Eddie and Reynold being the ones to catch them), and Laura was slightly better than Sherri. Also, they thought Sherri would be more useful in the Immunity Challenge.

Reynold is relieved that they sat out the right person for Reward. Now hopefully with Laura sitting out the Immunity Challenge, things can continue to improve for them.

Hope is also hoping that Gota can win the Immunity Challenge. Otherwise, she'll be the one going home. Meanwhile, Julia and Laura are talking about how they can flush out Reynold's Hidden Immunity Idol if by chance they have to go to Tribal Council.

Back at Bikal, it's all doom and gloom. Erik the Idiot is still stewing over Jeff Probst's efforts to stir the pot by commenting on the decision to send out Francesca. Brenda is trying to calm him down because she needs him and Corinne as goats.

Unfortunately, whenever Brenda tries to calm him down, Erik the Idiot begins yelling at her and this leads to lots of screaming matches. After Brenda walks out of another screaming match, she tells Corinne that she originally picked Erik and Francesca because she thought they'd be great goats for her. And for a time it worked, but now she's lost one goat and is about to lose another because neither one can keep their mouths shut!

Corinne is sympathetic but knows that this means Brenda chose her because Brenda thinks she's a good goat. Fortunately, Corinne doesn't comment on it. Instead, she says that Brenda might need Cochran and Dawn now and reminds Brenda that Cochran could still be a good shield.

Brenda explains that the reason she didn't want to turn to Cochran was because she was sure he'd turn on her sooner or later. But now she might have to use him or hope for a tribal switch. At this point, she's hoping for a tribal switch as she wants to use Cochran only as a very last resort.

Meanwhile, Dawn is crying because Erik the Idiot was going off on another rant against Probst -- in front of Dawn! She wants to quit -- again. Cochran reassures her that the whole tribe is sick of Erik and if they lose the next Immunity Challenge, they'll be all too happy to get rid of him. This cheers up Dawn.

During all this, it had been raining at Bikal. Now we switch to Gota, where the rain has come to their camp. The Fans are trying to find a way to shelter their fire so that it won't go out, but they seem to be having a hard time finding a good place of shelter because the fire keeps going out.

Matt says that he wishes their location was situated in such a way that they could keep the fire going by sheltering it. As it is, they're all huddled in their shelter and feel cold and miserable. Michael notes that at least they had a good barbeque, so things aren't too bad for them.

Back at Bikal, Treemail arrives. The challenge will be about "boxing", but nobody quite knows what that means. As Erik the Idiot starts a fire under the lip of the shelter, the others begin talking about what to do.

Malcolm is all for throwing the challenge in order to get rid of a loose cannon, but the others are much less sure. They don't want to keep Erik the Idiot around for long as he's a threat to their sanity and possibly a threat to Probst as well, but they don't want to go two down to the Fans.

Unfortunately, while they're still discussing thing, Erik the Idiot happens to overhear them -- and he is upset. He points out that they can't afford to lose another Favorite! Brenda tells him that she is not planning on throwing the challenge but if they happen to lose, he will be going out.

Then Malcolm adds fuel to the fire by saying that he's going to throw the challenge so that Erik the Idiot can go home! Naturally, Erik flips out and heads into the shelter to dump all the supplies! Corinne and Dawn rush in, grab Erik and pull him away from the supplies while Andrea and Brenda do what they can to save the supplies. Fortunately, Corinne and Dawn were able to get to Erik in time to prevent hm from getting the rice wet, but the rice is rather dirty. Cochran says that the dirt will boil away when they cook it. Brenda orders Malcolm not to throw the challenge.

Now it's time for the Immunity Challenge and there are purple and orange crates on the grass, along with two elevated platforms with steps. Both tribes drip their way in.

Jeff Probst asks Reynold how things are going with the Fans. He says that while they had a great barbeque, they're tired and cold. But they're not giving up. Then Probst asks Dawn about life at camp. She says that some people make her life miserable.

This naturally leads to Probst asking Erik the Idiot how he's doing. And Erik flips, accusing Probst of asking leading questions to get reactions out of people. Brenda tries to warn Erik that he doesn't have to play right into Probst's hands if he really is trying to get reactions out of people, but Erik is too mad to listen.

Then Erik the Idiot marches right up to Probst and gets right into the guy's face. Realizing that Erik is on the verge of punching Probst out, Brenda rushes up to stop him. She grabs his arm and tries to pull him away from Probst, but Erik shoves her down onto the sand and then actually makes a fist and pulls his arm back in order to throw a punch at Probst!

Fortunately, Malcolm is able to grab Erik the Idiot's arm before Erik can hit Probst. But the damage has been done. The Favorites are now ready to forfeit Immunity and vote Erik the Idiot out right now! The Fans get to keep Immunity and Probst asks for vocal votes. Erik votes for Brenda and the others vote for him!

The Fans return to Gota, shaking their heads over this turn of events while Malcolm holds Erik the Idiot until the Quit Boat comes. After Erik is taken away (and given some strong sedatives), the Favorites return to Bikal, openly relieved to have gotten rid of Erik. In fact, Dawn says that she's no longer willing to quit!

****************************************************************************************

Okay, now it's tme for a Tribal Switch! I want you to decide who is on Bikal and who is on Gota. There will be no challenge for now. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote! And hopefully, the tribes won't be so mismatched this time around.

44. "RE: The epic meltdown"
The tribes get a confusing tree mail the next morning, which neither tribe quite figures out. They both arrive at the challenge location, briefly discuss the events of the previous day, then JiffyProbe tells them to drop their buffs. They will draw eggs with paint inside, its color is that of the tribe they are being assigned to. When they smash the eggs on Probst's order, very little is actually changed. All the old Bikals stay on Bikal, where they are joined by Sherri of the old Gota tribe. The remaining old Gotas stay on Gota. The tribes enjoy a lunch to mark the tribe redraw, then return to their camps where each tribe finds each has been given an additional supply of rice and beans.

45. "Tribal Switch"
Well, we have a three-way tie for the composition of the new tribe, so I'm going to break the tie:

The after-party at Bikal takes place during the clear light of day, for once. Everyone is relieved that Erik the Idiot (and now Insane) is gone, even Brenda! During her confessional, she says that now she has to make new plans -- and quite possibly hope for a tribal switch! She doesn't trust Cochran but for now, she might need him.

Dawn wonders if there was something physically wrong with Erik that made him flip out. She vows to ask Probst as soon as there is an opportunity.

Malcolm gives a locker-room speech to the other Faves. He says that while they may be down by two players, they can't give up hope. They can still turn things around even if there's a tribal switch. One of the Fans might get injured and before they know it -- bam! The Faves will be back in the game!

Brenda goes to talk to Corinne afterwards and says that she has a plan. If there is a tribal switch and Malcolm is on the opposite tribe from her, she is going to try to find out if a Fan on her tribe has the other Hidden Immunity Idol! If she finds out that one of the Fans has the other HII, she plans to use the knowledge to blackmail the Fan into joining her and whichever Faves are with her after the switch.

Corinne agrees but tells her to tell whichever Faves are with her about the plan. After all, the Faves who are with Brenda have a right to know. Brenda promises to do just that and plans to tell Andrea and Malcolm as well, just in case they're with her.

Back at Gota, Reynold and Matt show up with Tree Mail. It’s a little Survivor rhyming ditty about exhaustion and the weather and having fun together. Michael applauds almost as if he knows what is coming. Eddie, Hope and Reynold all wonder if this means they'll get a brand-new start!

Both tribes grab their flags and go find Jeff Probst, who has a brand-new shirt on. He states the obvious fact that the last time they were there, things were scary, then asks Michael what this does to the dynamics of the Fans.

Michael says that this helped the Fans get a two-man advantage again. He hopes they can keep it this time around. When put on the spot, Matt says that they're all unified and they hope they can stay that way. He also feels sorry for the Faves for having to put up with Erik the Idiot.

Dawn now takes the opportunity to ask about Erik. It turns out they think he got some sort of parasite and he's being taken to a good hospital for treatment of it. Brenda now hopes that Erik will recover since the parasite might have been affecting him. She also notes that there's quite a bit of harmony now that Erik is gone.

Probst notes that fourteen days into the game, both tribes apparently feel a sense of unity. Then he notes that things are about to change. It's time for a tribal switch. The Fans and the Faves all drop their buffs and grab an egg, which they have to smash somewhere on their body at the count of three. If your egg contains orange paint, you're on Gota. If it contains purple paint, you're on Bikal.

Once they smash their eggs, the tribes are broken up as follows:

NEW BIKAL
Brenda - NewBikal
Cochran - NewBikal
Corinne - NewBikal
Hope - NewBikal
Michael - NewBikal
Reynold - NewBikal
Sherri - NewBikal

NEW GOTA
Andrea - NewGota
Dawn - NewGota
Eddie - NewGota
Julia - NewGota
Laura - NewGota
Malcolm - NewGota
Matt - NewGota

Cochran is asked what happened and he says that the game began anew. Then Dawn is asked how it feels to with four Fans and without Cochran. She says that with Erik gone, she'll survive. She hopes she can find a way to avoid being voted out as well.

Probst apparently knows that Reynold hates Sherri, so he asks how Reynold feels about being on the same tribe as Sherri. Reynold says that he'll survive -- somehow. Brenda seems to pick up on this. Probst asks Brenda how it feels to be the minority. She says that she's a fighter and will do what it takes to avoid being voted out.

Fortunately, there's no competition for now -- just a new bag of rice and a new flint for each tribe in case the flint on both tribes is being used up. Probst then dismisses both tribes and they head back to their respective camps.

****************************************************************************************

Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Hope, Michael, Reynold and Sherri are all Bikal while Andrea, Dawn, Eddie, Julia, Laura, Malcolm and Matt are now Gota. I want you to decide which tribe -- Bikal or Gota -- wins Immunity. The tribe with the most votes will avoid a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

46. "RE: Tribal Switch"
LAST EDITED ON 06-04-13 AT 02:33 PM (EST)

Wow, I'm honored! Really, the coin did the work, but I'm happy the tribes wound up relatively evenly matched-up for challenges, and with their complement of goats.

At Bikal the new tribe celebrates, Sherri quickly moves into the top leader position in the tribe and let's the Favs know they are on notice, any of them who wants in with the Fans will be given a chance to prove their loyalty. Corinne takes an instant dislike to Sherri. She and Brenda approach Reynold who quickly proves he can't keep his mouth shut, explains that no one likes Sherri but the Fans sort of agreed to stick together. "Sort of?" asks Brenda. "Who would say no?" he explains, "That's like saying, nuh-uh, don't trust me." Corinne instantly falls in love with Reynold and runs off to make friends with Michael.

At Gota everyone is happy but not quite. Andrea is happy, this is a much better beach and she likes these Fans. Eddie falls hard for Andrea. Laura is concerned but keeps up appearances. Dawn is trying to keep her emotions under control, she doesn't like this a bit and practices her breathing exercises. Matt, sensing what is going on, moves in to comfort her, they talk, she calms down while explaining in detail what all had gone on at Bikal. Malcolm quickly makes new friends with Eddie and Julia. Something about Laura is off-putting, he thinks he will have to keep an eye on her.

The next day at IC New Gota just barely wins over New Bikal.

So said the coin.

47. "RE: Tribal Switch"
At the tribal switch, the old Bikals on both tribes realize just how screwed they are by winding up in the minority on both new tribes, but none of them reacts visibly to it. But when they arrive back at camp, the old Bikals quickly begin taking stock.

At Bikal, Brenda, Corinne and Cochran confer. One of the newcomers, it is never revealed just who, spills the beans that Reynold has a HII. The 3 old Bikals quickly agree to target him and attempt to either blindside him or smoke out his idol, but if a newcomer screws up the IC they will try to persuade the other newcomers to boot that person.

At Gota, Dawn, Andrea and Malcolm agree that if they lose the IC they will unite behind one target in case Malcolm gets all the others' votes. Meanwhile, all the old Gotas try to figure out if any of the old Bikals have a HII, since they know Reynold took his with him to Bikal. They have no idea who does if anybody, and the beans have not been spilled, so they decide to play it by ear till after the next IC.

When the tribes show up for the IC, they see the same challenge set up that had been planned for the day of Erik's meltdown. Probst explains it, they run it, and New Gota loses a close one because Laura performs poorly in her part of the competition. New Bikal takes their idol and goes back to camp and celebrates, while New Gota begins busily plotting almost before they even get back to camp.

48. "RE: Tribal Switch"
I chose Dabo's coin-toss tribal composition because I thought the other two options would be too much of a mismatch. And for the choice for the tribe to win, I went with the list randomizer on Random.org -- best two out of three. Here are the results:

The new Bikal makes the long trudge back to camp. In a confessional, Sherri says that the Fans have to stick together against the Faves or else they're doomed. Fortunately, there are a majority of Fans on each tribe.

On the trek to Gota, Malcolm notes that the Faves are in the minority on both tribes but they're not giving up. There has to be a crack or two that the Faves on both tribes can exploit!

At Bikal, Sherri takes charge and tells the Faves that they are on notice and the only way they can save themselves is to prove their loyalty to the Fans. Reynold looks disgusted and Hope and Michael see this -- as does Brenda.

Later Brenda, Cochran and Corinne converse together. Corinne can't stand Sherri and wants her gone. Brenda reveals that Reynold is disgusted with the whole thing, so Cochran suggests that they try to get Reynold on their side for the time being. Both Brenda and Corinne agree.

At Gota Andrea, Dawn and Malcolm all agree to unite behind a single target just in case Malcolm gets the votes of all the others. However, a break for them comes when Eddie approaches Andrea and begins to flirt with her.

Andrea plays along and Dawn and Laura are both concerned about this. Dawn reveals her concern to Malcolm, who reassures her that Andrea is probably just trying to reel Eddie in for a vote on their side. This calms Dawn down.

Laura pulls Eddie away and in front of Julia and Matt she tells Eddie that the Fans have to stick together! Julia points out that if Eddie is interested in Andrea, maybe they can use his interest to find out if one of the Faves on Gota has the other Hidden Immunity Idol. Laura agrees that this is a good idea.

Back on Bikal, Corinne approaches Reynold and they commiserate over their mutual dislike of Sherri. Brenda and Cochran secretly listen in. Reynold blurts out that he has a Hidden Immunity Idol when he comments that he'd be happy to burn it just to get rid of Sherri. Corinne then suggests that he just switch sides and help the Faves get rid of Sherri when they go to Tribal Council.

Reynold is tempted but he doesn't want to betray the Fans. He tells Corinne that he'll think about it. He does promise not to mention Corinne's suggestion to the other Fans, as they might turn on him if they find out!

When he leaves, Brenda and Cochran come out and they urge Corinne to keep up the good work. Brenda wonders if they should promise Reynold something to convince him to flip. Cochran says they could promise him a Final 4 deal and Brenda and Corinne agree that would be a good idea.

Then Brenda comes up with an even better idea. She suggests that if they get Reynold to flip, they should inform him of the Hidden Immunity Idol that Malcolm has and use both to take control of the tribe. Cochran and Corinne all go for it.

Meanwhile, the next day we see Eddie do a confessional. On the one hand, he knows he is supposed to get information on the Hidden Immunity Idol from Andrea. On the other hand, he really likes Andrea, his initial showmance partner, Hope, is on Bikal and he doesn't really like Laura! He's seriously thinking about jumping ship.

He meets Andrea and while he does make some efforts to find out if any of the Faves on Gota have the HII, his efforts are half-hearted at best. Also, Andrea plays things cool and doesn't reveal that Malcolm has the HII. But while she reels Eddie in enough to have him reveal his dissatisfaction with his tribemates, she fails to reel him in all the way.

It's now Day 16 and it's time for the Immunity Challenge -- which is the same one that they were going to have before Erik the Idiot melted down! Julia hands back the main Immunity Idol to Jeff Probst.

It's just Immunity this time. Players go out into the field in pairs. Each pair rolls a crate back to the star construction. When all six crates are back, the players can then start stacking them on the stairs so that in the end the phrase “Fans vs Favorites” reads properly. It’s painted on the sides of the crates. The correct alignment will have it reading on a diagonal going up the steps.

The first pair out for Bikal is Reynold and Corinne. The first one out for Gota is Eddie and Dawn. Reynold and Corinne pull out a slight lead before passing off to Michael and Brenda. Eddie and Dawn pass off to Malcolm and Andrea. Michael and Brenda pass off to Cochran and Hope while Matt and Julia go up next for Gota. Both Cochran and Julia are having a hard time pushing, so things remain even when Reynold and Sherri go up for Bikal and Eddie and Laura go up for Gota. Sherri is bad but Laura is even worse, so Gota begins to fall behind. Corinne and Michael go fifth for Bikal while Malcolm and Dawn go fifth for Gota. The final pairs are Brenda and Hope for Bikal and Andrea and Matt for Gota.

When both tribes are done, they begin manhandling the crates up the steps, with Reynold, Michael, Malcolm and Eddie doing much of the manhandling. Cochran calls the shots for Bikal and Julia calls them for Gota. After some work:

Probst: Bikal wins Reward! (Bikal celebrates, while Gota just looks upset. Cochran takes the Immunity Idol.) Bikal, you are safe and aren't heading for Tribal Council. Gota, I'm sorry to say that you have a date with me tonight at Tribal Council. Someone will be going home tonight. You have all day today to figure out who will be going home. Head on back and I'll see you at Tribal.

Bikal celebrates as they leave while Gota just trudges off.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Gota has a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council. The candidates are the three Fans on Gota, Eddie and Laura. I want you to decide which of those five heads off to Sequesterville. The person who has the most votes will be heading off -- unless that person is Malcolm, in which case the person with the second most votes will be going. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

Not willing to cut strength just yet and seeing how Laura was such a challenge hound, Laura gets votes from Malcolm, Andrea Dawn. Eddie after hoping to get in good with Andrea votes Laura. In a surprising move Matt votes Laura realizing that he just has to hold on till the merge and better to hang with the majority and keep a target on anyone but him.



I should be watched....closely.

Immediately upon returning to Camp Gota, Eddie and Julia and Laura and Matt decide to have a pow wow. Eddie wants to boot Dawn because she's not fun people, and Julia agrees adding that Dawn is not good in challenges. Matt disagrees, he doesn't care which Fav they boot but he thinks Dawn is so afraid of being voted off she will join forces with them. Laura, the strategist, agrees. As long as they have the numbers it doesn't matter if they lose immunity challenges and go to TC, they can all survive one or two more turns and make the merge while picking off Favs. She thinks they should blindside Malcolm, he won't see it coming.

Left to themselves to compare notes, Andrea and Dawn and Malcolm agree to vote off Laura, who is weak in challenges and they need to win the next one. Malcolm shows his HII to Andrea and Dawn to let them know they can control this one if they play it right. Andrea knows she can work Eddie to find out if she is the target, Dawn thinks she can work Matt for info.

The Fans eventually agree to vote off Malcolm. Eddie reveals to Andrea that she is in no danger. She's fun peeps and this whole thing is supposed to be fun. Matt, taking pity on Dawn, tells her she is safe and should join them in voting out Malcolm.

51. "RE: Tribal Switch"
The old Gotas on New Gota have no idea which if any of the three old Bikals has their HII, and none of the old Bikals spills the beans that Malcolm has it, so the old Gotas are flying blind in their plotting. The old Bikals all agree to vote Laura and have Malcolm play his HII, hoping to both boot a weak challenge player and even up the numbers. The old Gotas decide that since they have no idea who has Bikal's HII they'll just take a shot in the dark and vote the way they would if nobody had one. At TC the old Bikals all stick to the plan and vote to oust Laura, and Malcolm plays his HII. The old Gotas all vote to oust Malcolm, and none of those votes count due to Malcolm playing his idol, thus resulting in Laura getting voted out 3-0.

52. "New Gota Tribal Council"
With a majority vote, here are the results:

The new Bikal returns to camp totally happy. Brenda, Cochran and Corinne are especially happy since they have more time to work on Reynold and get him to join their side to take out Sherri.

Meanwhile, the Fans and Faves on Gota split up when they reach camp to do some plotting. It's easy for the Faves to come up with a good target -- they choose Laura without too much discussion. Laura is the strategist for the Fans on Gota and she's the weakest in challenges. Malcolm doesn't want to use his Hidden Immunity Idol just yet (which he reveals to Dawn), so Andrea volunteers to convince Eddie to flip but says that he should use the HII as a precaution in case she fails.

Unfortunately for the Fans, it's a lot harder, especially since Eddie had failed to find out which Fave had the HII or even if a Fave on Gota had the HII. Laura really wants to get rid of Andrea to prevent her from convincing Eddie to jump ship, but Eddie will have no part of any plans to get rid of Andrea and besides, they have the majority and can choose who they want to get rid of.

Discussion turns to Dawn then. Eddie wants to get rid of Dawn because she's less fun than Andrea or Malcolm while Julia thinks that Dawn's the weakest of the three Faves in challenges, so is willing to get rid of Dawn. But Matt suggests that Dawn will be so scared of being voted off that she'll vote with them. Laura agrees and Julia doesn't really care which Fave goes, so the Fans settle on going after Malcolm.

Eddie and Andrea meet and Andrea tries to convince Eddie to jump ship and vote out Laura, pointing out that she's a weak link. Eddie agrees that she's weak but also notes that Laura is a Fan. He then tells Andrea that had Laura insisted on going after Andrea, he would have turned on Laura in a heartbeat, thus revealing to Andrea that she is not the target. Eddie mentions that Andrea is too much fun to let go.

Pitying Dawn, Matt suggests that Dawn save herself by joining the Fans in getting rid of Malcolm. When she asks if this is a blindside, he reassures her that the Fans won't be targeting her and they won't target Andrea until after Malcolm is gone if by some chance they have to go back to Tribal Council before the merge. Dawn thanks him and tells him that she won't tell Andrea or Malcolm.

But in the next scene, we find out that she tells Andrea and Malcolm who the Fans will be targeting. Andrea reveals that she thinks Eddie is only voting with the Fans because Laura decided not to insist on going after Andrea after Eddie put his foot down. She thinks that Malcolm could show the HII to Eddie just before Tribal Council and tell him that they'll vote Eddie out unless he votes with them.

Malcolm is willing to go for it, so just before Gota heads for Tribal Council, he waylays Eddie and shows Eddie the HII. He tells Eddie that if Eddie doesn't vote with the Faves, they will vote for him instead! Eddie heads right to confessional afterwards and discusses his dilemma: either he saves himself and becomes a traitor or remains loyal and risks the chance of going home.

At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst asks the members of Gota where they think they went wrong. Eddie thinks that Dawn got them off on the wrong foot by struggling a bit on the first leg, but Dawn points out that Julia also struggled and Laura was the one who really caused them to fall behind!

When asked if this is true, Laura agrees that she struggled but points out that she's still a Fan and the Fans must stick together! Probst notes, "So you're going after one of the Faves, right?" Matt confirms it and says that he doesn't really care which Fave goes, as the Fans are in the majority, but Eddie doesn't want to lose Andrea, so Andrea is safe for tonight.

When asked whom he's going after, Eddie says that while he'd like to get rid of Dawn because she's weaker than Andrea or Malcolm, he's got to go after Malcolm because the others want to use Dawn. When asked how he feels about it, Malcolm insists that Gota needs his strength! Laura then adds, "But we need allies even more!"

When asked how she feels about being safe, Andrea says that she's glad that Eddie likes her. She hopes he can keep her safe for a little longer. Julia is then asked if she thinks anybody will flip. She says that Eddie won't flip because they're not going after Andrea tonight. As for the other Fans, she's sure that they will stay loyal.

Probst: It is time to vote. Andrea, you're up first.

Andrea votes first, followed by Dawn and then Julia. Laura holds up a vote for Malcolm, saying that she has to keep Eddie loyal. Malcolm returns the favor, saying that Laura's just too weak. Matt is up next, followed by Eddie, who simply says that he took a risk and hopes that it paid off.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Laura and Malcolm are shown.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so.

Malcolm (standing up): I thought a lot about this and during Tribal Council, I decided that I would rather be safe than sorry so I'll use this Idol.

He pulls it out and hands it to Probst. Julia, Laura and Matt all look worried.

Probst: The rules state that if somebody found the Hidden Immunity Idol and plays it during Tribal Council, all votes against that person will not count. This is a Hidden Immunity Idol. All votes against Malcolm will not count. (Julia, Laura and Matt all have identical "Oh, crap" looks on their faces.) First vote ... Malcolm. Does not count. Second vote ... Malcolm. Does not count. Third vote ... Malcolm. Does not count. Fourth vote ... Laura. (Laura nods in resignation.) Fifth vote ... Laura. Two votes for Laura. Sixth vote ... Malcolm. Does not count. (Malcolm looks relieved.) Last vote ... the seventh person out of the game and the sixth person voted out ... Laura. Will you bring me your torch?

As Laura goes to grab her torch, she looks at the others. Julia and Matt both whisper, "Sorry." Eddie just shrugs. Laura grabs her torch and heads over to Probst.

Probst: Laura, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs her torch.) Time for you to go. (Laura nods sadly and heads off.) Well, judging by the reactions of two of the Fans, they had no clue this was coming. At least you have three days to deal with the aftereffects. Grab your torches and head on back to camp. Good night.

The jubilant Andrea, Dawn and Malcolm all grab their torches, followed by Eddie and finally by a shell-shocked Julia and Matt. In her final words, Laura says that the Faves outwitted her. We see that Eddie joined the other Fans in voting for Malcolm.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, I had Laura go and Malcolm use his Hidden Immunity Idol. I also had Eddie vote for Malcolm. His motivation was that he suspected that the Faves would really go after Laura, so he chose to remain loyal and keep his options open.

Next up is the Reward Challenge. I want you to decide who sits out for Bikal and which tribe wins the Reward. The tribe with the most votes will win Reward while the person from Bikal with the most votes will sit things out. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

53. "RE: New Gota Tribal Council"
The next day at camp, several of the Gotas, from both sides, search for a HII in hopes it had been rehidden, with no results. The old Gotas all agree to target Malcolm if they lose the next IC. Both tribes receive tree mail summoning them to a RC. Bikal huddles before they even go and agree to sit out Sherri, to which she quickly agrees.

The tribes show up at Challenge Beach, where Bikal notes without shock that Laura has been sent packing. The old Bikals on Bikal get a bit worried, knowing that Reynold has a HII and they don't, and suspecting that Malcolm had been targeted but had, and played, a HII. Bikal sits Sherri out of the RC as planned, and Hope badly butchers her part of the challenge, resulting in Gota smoking them like a bad cigar. Gota leaves happier than a pig in slop at having won a nice reward, while all the old Bikals on Bikal realize how screwed they are if they lose the next IC, which they know is due within the next day or 2.

54. "RE: New Gota Tribal Council"
Bad sit out strategy curses New Bikal, they will be forced to play Sherri in the IC. Okay.

Personally, I would have had Sherri, per her New Bikal leadership role, insist on proving herself in the RC, and failing in spectacular Phillip-ean fashion. But this works too.

55. "Next Reward Challenge"
Okay, here are the results:

The new Gota members arrive back at camp after Tribal Council and then we see Eddie do a confessional. In it, he reveals that he suspected during Tribal Council that the Faves were going to vote Laura out even if he didn't vote with them, so he decided to be loyal to the Fans for the time being. He also hoped to reunite with Hope after the merge -- if they both made it that far.

He then joins the other Fans in discussing what went wrong. When asked if anybody had a clue that Malcolm had a Hidden Immunity Idol, Eddie had to admit that he had been informed about it just before they headed out to Tribal Council. When asked why he never told the other Fans, he said (accurately) that he didn't have the time to tell them and urge them to put the target on Dawn. (He also mentions that right after he learned about the HII, he had to do a confessional and then make the trip to T.C., but this isn't shown on T.V.)

In a confessional, Julia says that she's willing to accept Eddie's explanation since he could have taken the opportunity to jump ship but instead remained loyal. Matt is also willing to accept Eddie's excuse but now thinks that they have to hope that the Fans on Bikal will remain loyal as well. If they don't, the Fans are doomed.

Andrea, Dawn and Malcolm are all celebrating but they know they have to go looking for another HII, if only to prevent the Fans on Gota from getting it. But they still have hope that they can reel in Eddie, thanks to his interest in Andrea.

On day 17 at Bikal, Brenda reads a tree mail to the group, “The strong must bear the weak, if you hope to compete. The taste of victory today will be oh so sweet.” Cochran tries to analyze the tree mail. He wonders if the competition will depend upon the weak people or the strong.

Bikal discusses it together and ultimately decides that it will depend more upon the strength factor than on the weakness one. Thus they decide to sit out Sherri, who is the weakest person on Bikal. Sherri's not too happy but she sees the wisdom of the idea, so she agrees to it.

Meanwhile, Corinne tells Reynold that Malcolm has a Hidden Immunity Idol and that if he flips over to the side of the Faves, they can use both HIIs to take control of the game. Reynold says, "Give me one reason why I should jump ship and join you guys."

Corinne says, "You can be part of our Final 4. Brenda, Cochran and us. Join us, and you're Final 4 and quite possibly Final 3 as Brenda and Cochran are willing to dump each other at Final 4."

We then see Reynold do a confessional in which he says that the option is tempting, especially if he can get rid of Sherri first as part of joining the Faves on Bikal. Brenda does a confessional in which she expresses her hope that Reynold will flip. If not, they're done for.

We then fly to the Reward Challenge. Jeff Probst has Bikal enter and once they're all on the mat:

Probst: Gota, come on in! (Gota enters.) Bikal getting their first look at the new Gota. Laura bounced out at the last Tribal Council.

The Fans on Bikal are shocked -- except for Reynold, who looks at Malcolm. Brenda, Cochran and Corinne look worried, as they're pretty sure Malcolm used his Hidden Immunity Idol to bounce out Laura.

Probst tells the tribes they will be wearing a belt looped through a rope and will be joined together as a tribe. Each member will be carrying a 20 pound sandbag.

The tribes will start at opposite sides of an oval course in the water and will race around the course trying to catch the other tribe. If someone gets tired, they can opt out and give their weight to someone else.

The first tribe to catch the other tribe wins reward. Probst asks the tribes “Want to know what you’re playing for?” Of course they all say yes.

The winning tribe will be taken to another island where they will have coffee, cookies, croissants and brownies. When asked to sit someone out, Bikal says they already chose to sit out Sherri.

Both tribes strategize before starting the challenge. Malcolm tells the Gotas they want to stay even for the first lap or so and then start gaining on the Bikal tribe.

Reynold volunteers to go first, then asks who has the most endurance to keep up with him. Brenda and Corinne go next, followed by Hope, Cochran and finally Matt.

Both Bikal and Gota begin with a fast walk. After the first lap, each tribe begins trying to gain on each other. At first it's even, but then Hope begins tiring. This causes Gota to begin gaining on Bikal. Hope then stumbles badly and admits that she's incredibly tired. She opts out and gives her weight to Reynold.

Bikal now tries to run but this wears out Cochran and Matt, who drop out and give their weights to Corinne and Brenda. At the back of Gota, Julia drops out and Malcolm picks up her weight. Now Gota begins running and although Reynold, Corinne and Brenda try to stay ahead, Corinne falls and:

Probst: Gota wins Reward! (Gota celebrates.) Gota, your trip to the other island -- and your reward -- are waiting for you. Bikal, I have nothing for you. Head back to camp and I'll see you at the Immunity Challenge.

As Gota heads out, Sherri tries to put a good face on things by saying that Gota will get sick and have diarrhea from all the coffee and sweets so the reward is not such a big deal. She also is glad they sat her out.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Gota won Reward. Now I want you to decide which tribe -- Bikal or Gota -- wins Immunity. The tribe with the most votes will avoid a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

57. "RE: Next Reward Challenge"
The tribes arrive for the next IC having both debated seriously whether or not to throw this IC, knowing a merge is coming soon. But with their worst wackjobs long since gone, nobody really has any incentive to throw the IC. The old Bikals on Bikal will be in immediate jeopardy if they lose. The old Gotas on Bikal don't want to throw the challenge and possibly have to expend Reynold's HII. On Gota nobody wants to risk a purple rock, the old Bikals want to win and at least make Reynold expend his idol, plus none of them like Corinne much and they wouldn't mind if she got booted pre-merge without them having to get the blood on their own hands, and the old Gotas want their buddies on Bikal to have a shot at booting a Fave pre-merge and keeping the old Gotas on top in the numbers. So on balance, nobody has any incentive to try any funny stuff, both tribes play hard and play well, and New Gota comes away with the immunity win.

58. "Immunity Challenge #7"
Okay, usually I'd wait until the next day but there's a clear majority, so here are the results:

Gota gets to the island and gets all excited when they see the different pastries. In a confessional, Andrea says that the Reward is a great opportunity to bond with the Fans without having to worry about plots.

Andrea continues flirting with Eddie and he's delighted. He says that when Allie was voted out, things weren't so fun for a time even with Hope around, but now Andrea is here and things are really fun!

Back at Bikal Brenda, Cochran and Corinne are mad at Hope for beginning the process by which they lost the Immunity Challenge. Hope tries to defend herself by pointing out that Corinne fell and that's when Gota caught Bikal, but Reynold jumps to Corinne's defense by pointing out that Hope had fallen as well.

Corinne apologizes for tripping, explaining that she just tripped over her own feet and adding that it wasn't because she was tired. Ultimately, Michael and Sherri defuse the argument and they grab Reynold and Hope.

Sherri reminds Reynold and Hope that they're Fans and that Gota lost a Fan because one of the Faves played a Hidden Immunity Idol. The Fans need to keep their numerical advantage and not lose another Fan!

Hope agrees, but Reynold is reflecting on the offer he'd been given and the fact that he hates Sherri. He doesn't want to let personal feelings influence his decision but he not only hates Sherri, he likes Corinne!

Back at Gota, both the Fans and Faves look for a Hidden Immunity Idol. Unfortunately, neither the Fans nor the Faves seem to have much luck. Andrea says that they need to win Immunity to avoid going to Tribal Council a second time, while Julia says that they need to win to avoid a possible purple-rock scenario. Eddie is planning on saving himself by joining the Faves if by chance, they lose the next Immunity Challlenge.

Back on Bikal, since Reynold likes Corinne, Brenda and Cochran have her push Reynold pretty hard to get him to flip. But if that doesn't work, Brenda has a plan. She plans to stir up trouble by letting Hope, Michael and Sherri think that Reynold can't be trusted. This would clearly ensure that Reynold would jump ship or at least get him to burn his HII if they lose the next Immunity Challenge.

Cochran and Corinne are all for the plan. But before we can see them do anything about it, it's time for a brand-new Immunity Challenge! Three members of each tribe will paddle a canoe out into the ocean to a marker.

Once they secure their canoe, all three will dive down and release a statue, bring it back to shore and place it at the base of a tower. Then three other tribe members will use a grappling hook to retrieve keys.

Once they’ve collected all five keys, they will unlock the tower and use a rope to pull the statue to the top and raise an immunity flag. The first tribe to do so wins. The losers get a date with Jeff Probst at Tribal Council.

Since Bikal can't sit Sherri out, they sit out Hope. Brenda, Corinne and Michael paddle for Bikal while Dawn, Eddie and Malclolm paddle for Gota.

Both tribes are neck-and-neck throughout the paddling stage of the competition, but once they get to shore, things run off the rails for Bikal. Matt and Cochran grab their keys fine enough, but Sherri is third and she can't retrieve the key! Finally, Matt and Cochran take over for her but:

Jeff Probst: Gota wins Immunity! (Gota cheers while Reynold and the Faves on Bikal glare at Sherri. Andrea takes the Immunity Idol.) Gota, you have Immunity and are safe from the vote. Bikal, you have a date with me at Tribal Council where somebody will be voted out. You have all day to think about who should be voted out. Head back and I'll see you at Tribal.

Gota jubilantly leaves. As Bikal leaves, Sherri looks crestfallen, Hope and Michael look unhappy and Brenda, Cochran, Corinne and Reynold all look mad.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, it's time to vote for two things. First, I want you to decide who from Gota finds the re-hidden Immunity Idol. Second, I want you to decide who from Bikal takes the long walk off the short pier. The candidates are Corinne (since I think she's more likely to be targeted amongst the Faves) or Sherri. The person from Gota with the most votes will find the re-hidden HII and the person from Bikal with the most votes will be sent out of the game. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

60. "RE: Immunity Challenge #7"
Back at camp, several Gotas from both old tribes search for a HII in hopes it has been rehidden, and Eddie finds the HII in Andrea's presence. She spills the beans to Dawn and Malcolm, but Eddie doesn't know she did it.

Meanwhile, at Bikal Brenda, Cochran and Corinne all attempt to persuade Reynold to flip and vote out Sherri, but despite his hatred for her he is having none of it. They therefore target Reynold and make that known in hopes of getting another old Gota to turn on Reynold, but despite their internal divisions none of them agree to turn. When they get to tribal, Probst spends over an hour stirring the turds, only stopping because his crew tells him in his earpiece that a heavy storm is approaching and they need to get the Bikals back to camp and the crew back to their base camp before it hits. The turd stirring was enough, however, to sow doubt in Reynold's mind, and after they vote and Probst gets the urn, Reynold plays his HII. It turns out to be unnecessary, as only the old Bikals vote for Reynold. Those votes don't count, but all the old Gotas' votes do. Reynold votes for Cochran, but the other old Gotas all have developed a healthy dislike for Corinne in the days since the tribal redraw, and they vote her out 3-1.

61. "Tribal Council #7"
We have a unanimous vote for who gets the Hidden Immunity Idol but a tie vote as to who goes home from Bikal. I'll break the tie:

Gota returns to camp very happy, but they soon split to look for the Hidden Immunity Idol. Andrea finds a tree with a hole in it. She looks in it (as she had in all the trees with holes that she saw beforehand) and voila! She has the HII. She plans to tell Dawn and Malcolm about it as soon as she can.

As she leaves, Eddie spots her. He heads up to the same tree but of course doesn't find the HII. In a confessional, he wonders if Andrea beat him to it or if it wasn't there. He hopes it wasn't there and continues looking.

Meanwhile, Andrea takes Dawn and Malcolm aside and shows them the HII. She tells them that with this Idol, they can use it to save the day for the Faves.

Back at Bikal, Corinne doesn't hesitate to blame Sherri for the tribe's losing Immunity. Sherri suggests that maybe bad sit-out strategy was really to blame. In confessional, Reynold is willing to concede the possibility that they erred in deciding who would sit out the Reward Challenge. But hindsight is 20/20.

Most of the Fans on Gota are all in agreement that Corinne must go. None of them like her much and Sherri hates that Corinne blamed her for losing the Immunity Challenge for Bikal. Similarly, all the Faves decide to get rid of Sherri, as she's the ringleader of the Fans. Reynold is the swing vote and everyone knows it -- including Reynold.

Thus, there is heavy lobbying to get Reynold's vote. The Faves continue to offer him a Final 4 alliance but Brenda sweetens the pot by saying that if he joins with the Faves, he can go with her and Corinne to the Final 3, with Cochran going out at Final 4. Brenda does this because she thinks the merge will be coming in the next episode and that Cochran will reunite with Dawn.

Meanwhile Hope, Michael and Sherri all urge Reynold to help them get rid of Corinne by appealing to the fact that he's a Fan and the Fans need to stick together to keep their majority. Sherri goes so far as to suggest that none of the Fans will vote for Reynold if he turns on them.

In a confessional, Reynold is clearly torn. He hates Sherri and likes Corinne. Also, he might get to the Final 4 or 3 if he joins the Faves. But he is a Fan and he is worried about the prospect that if he joins the Faves, none of the Fans who make the jury will vote for him to win.

At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst asks Bikal what went wrong. Brenda blames Hope for the Reward Challenge loss but puts even more blame on Sherri for losing the I.C. Sherri defends herself by blaming the sit-out strategy, saying that they should have sat out Hope for the R.C. and not her.

When asked what he thinks, Reynold notes that in retrospect, they should have sat out Hope and not Sherri for the Reward Challenge. But Hope told the others that she had enough endurance, and hindsight is always 20/20. So right now, Sherri is the one who lost them Immunity, even if others might share some of the blame.

Probst asks who thinks they're in danger. Corinne and Sherri raise their hands, and a second later Hope does as well. When asked why she thought she was in danger, Hope notes that her performance in the R.C. was mentioned and she's not the strongest Fan, so she wouldn't be surprised to get a vote or two.

Corinne says that she thinks she's the target because she thinks Brenda and Cochran are more likeable and because she let the other Fans see her dislike of Sherri. She then tells Hope that the Faves are sticking together and when pressed by Probst to reveal if Hope or Sherri is the target, she says that it's Sherri.

Michael is relieved to learn that he is not a target, as is Cochran. Michael expresses his hope that Reynold does the right thing and votes for Corinne. Cochran just notes that he's glad that he's not on a tribe of challenge junkies and that both Fans and Faves can appreciate good strategy.

Probst: It is now time to vote. Brenda, you're up.

Brenda votes, followed by Cochran. Corinne votes for Sherri, saying that Sherri has worn out her welcome. Hope and Michael vote, followed by Reynold, who votes for Cochran, saying that he's just throwing his vote away -- for now. Sherri then votes for Corinne, saying that she's a pain in the neck.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Cochran, Corinne and Sherri are shown.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and to play it, now would be the time to do so. (Reynold doesn't move.) Once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. First vote ... Corinne. Second vote ... Sherri. One vote Corinne, one vote Sherri. Third vote ... Cochran.

Cochran is surprised, as are Hope, Michael and Sherri.

Probst: We're tied. One vote Cochran, one vote Corinne, one vote Sherri. Fourth vote ... Corinne. Two votes Corinne. Fifth vote ... Sherri. That's two votes Corinne, two votes Sherri, one vote Cochran. Sixth vote ... Corinne. Three votes Corinne, two votes Sherri, one vote Cochran, one vote left. Last vote ... Sherri. We have a tie between Corinne and Sherri.

Corinne and Sherri nod, clearly knowing what is coming and that it all depends upon who Reynold votes for.

Probst: You will have to go back in and vote again. You can only vote for Corinne or Sherri. (Each person goes in and votes again.) I'll get the votes. (Corinne and Sherri wait nervously.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and wants to use it on Corinne or Sherri, now would be the time to do so.

Reynold (standing up): I'm planning on keeping all my options open, so I plan on using the Hidden Immunity Idol on Corinne.

He gives it to Corinne, who hands it to Probst. Hope and Michael look betrayed while Sherri glares furiously at Reynold.

Probst: The rules state that if someone finds a Hidden Immunity Idol and uses it on someone else, all votes against that person will not count. This is a Hidden Immunity Idol, so all votes against Corinne won't count. First vote ... Corinne. Does not count. Second vote ... Corinne. Does not count. Third vote ... Corinne. Does not count. Fourth vote ... Corinne. Does not count.

Brenda, Cochran and Corinne are all smiling, while Hope and Michael look devastated and Sherri looks furious. Reynold is just stoic.

Probst: Fifth vote ... Sherri. Sixth vote ... Sherri. That's two votes Sherri. Last vote ... the seventh person voted out and the eighth person out of Survivor Caramoan ... Sherri. You need to bring me your torch.

Sherri gets up and tells Hope and Michael, "If you are on the jury and Reynold is facing you, don't vote for him to win!" She grabs her torch and heads over to Probst.

Probst: Sherri, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Sherri's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Sherri stomps out.) Well, we found out that even if the Fans voted together, they aren't as united as they seem. We'll find out if the Fans can get back together. Grab your torches and head back to camp.

As the jubilant Faves grab their torches, followed by Reynold and then Michael and Hope, we see Sherri do her final words. She says that she wishes Reynold had been medically evacuated, since Shamar would have remained loyal. We see that although Reynold gave his HII to Corinne, he voted against her.

****************************************************************************************

As you can see, I decided to save Corinne mainly because saving her suited my own purposes. I considered just having Reynold switch on the re-vote, but then decided that he might decide to keep his options open at the merge by voting to get rid of Corinne but giving the Hidden Immunity Idol to her on the re-vote.

Okay, the merge is coming. I'm going to keep the tribal name of Enil Edam, but I want you to decide who gets the new Hidden Immunity Idol (other than Andrea, since she already has one HII). The person with the most votes will get the second HII. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

62. "RE: Tribal Council #7"
The next morning the tribes are summoned to Challenge Beach. Gota notices Bikal has booted Sherri, and Eddie and Michael are heard muttering curse words. Probst says, "Not happy with Sherri getting booted, eh?" Eddie says, "(bleep) no, we're not. There's a traitor over there, and we need to find out who. Yeah, we hated Sherri as much as whoever backstabbed her, but we wanted to keep the numbers in our favor and deal with her later." Probst says, "You'll have plenty of time to find out who later. Drop your buffs." Probst hands Matt a bag with 12 new buffs, and the tribe "celebrates" the merge with a big picnic lunch. They then return to Gota camp, where Bikal finds its reward and personal items have been delivered. The tribal politicking begins as soon as the new tribal flag is painted, with the new tribal name being Enil Edam, chosen by Malcolm. The old Gotas huddle, and Reynold flat out tells them he used his HII on Corinne because he hated Sherri with a passion and wanted to keep his options open, knowing the merge was coming sometime soon. Eddie says "You know that gives us reason not to trust you." Reynold says "There are already plenty of people on this island I don't trust, and you lead the pack with all your showmances. THAT'S why I'm keeping my options open." With that, the old Gotas all start searching the camp area for a HII, which the old Bikals were already doing. Reynold searches the hardest, knowing after flipping he might need it the most, but it is Malcolm who finds the rehidden idol, which only he knows about since nobody saw him find it.

63. "RE: Tribal Council #7"
I like that but I think Matt would be the one talking about the traitor instead of Eddie. Eddie would want to maintain his persona as a loveable goof with a thing for showmances, thinking of going forward to having a threesome (not in a guttertalk sort of way) with Andrea and Hope.

And I would rather that Reynold, the eternal optimist, find the re-hidden HII. Just for yucks

BTW, that was the weirdest waste of the HII. There is only one time at TC to play the idol, after the first votes have been cast but before they are read. But, heh, whatever, Probst has been screwing things up right and left ever since he became showrunner, these days any nonsense is possible.

(In a historical note, Probst screwed up things when he brought out the purple rock draw in Marquesas. In that TC, per the rules, the tie-breaker should have been a fire-starter challenge. But I also think the screw-up was intentional so that they could introduce the purple rock tie-breaker and put the fear of ties into players forever after.)

65. "Merge time!"
Okay, we have a majority vote, so here are the results. And btw, Dabo, the screw-up was on my end! I thought there would be another chance during the re-vote to use the Hidden Immunity Idol, and I was mistaken:

When Bikal returned to Tribal Council, an upset Hope pulled Reynold aside and asked him why he used his Hidden Immunity Idol on Corinne. He said that he wanted to get rid of Sherri but he also wanted to keep his options open, so he voted for Corinne.

In a confessional, Michael is mad at Reynold. He calls Reynold a traitor, even if he had voted for a Fave, since he used the HII on Corinne! He's going to tell the other Fans on Gota exactly what happened.

The following day we see Brenda, Cochran and Corinne talking to Reynold. Although Corinne is happy that he used the HII on her, she's still not happy that he voted for her. He admits that he was being a bit too cute there. He should have used it before the tie vote (when he threw his vote away), not afterwards, and he apologizes there.

This satisfies the Faves. In a confessional, Brenda thinks that things are going pretty well for her. Hope isn't happy with Reynold and she heard Michael yelling at Reynold. She plans to use this to get the other Fans to turn on Reynold so that he has no choice but to join the Faves.

Meanwhile, Cochran is glad that the merge is coming since he can reunite with Dawn and perhaps join Andrea and Malcolm, as he's sure Brenda is plotting against him. But for now, he's going to stick with the Faves and try to pick off the Fans.

We now turn to Gota. Dawn is struggling -- again. It’s at this point in the game that Cochran turned on her last time. She says she’s tried to make it a whole new game, but the shadows of what came before are still haunting her.

She cries for a bit, then we see an outrigger arrive at Gota camp. It's merge time, and the Gota tribe has to pack their belongings for the trip to Bikal. The Fans are looking forward to seeing whether or not Corinne is gone -- as are the Faves on Gota.

When the former Gota members arrive at Bikal, they all see that Sherri isn't there and Corinne is! Andrea, Dawn and Malcolm are fairly pleased since this means the Faves and Fans are tied in numbers. Eddie's less than pleased, but he's happy to see Hope is safe! He now hopes he can have a threesome with her and Andrea.

However, Julia and Matt are mad and grab Eddie, Hope, Michael and Reynold. Matt demands to know who the traitor was. Michael happily fingers Reynold, who insists that he voted for a Fave but admits giving his Hidden Immunity Idol to Corinne. He wanted Sherri gone but he wanted to keep his options open.

Eddie notes "You know that gives us reason not to trust you." Reynold says "There are already plenty of people on this island I don't trust, and you lead the pack with all your showmances. THAT'S why I'm keeping my options open." Brenda secretly hears this and is delighted, of course.

As a huge wicker basket with picnic food arrives, Malcolm suggests that the new tribe name be Enil Edam, claiming that it means "new beginnings". In reality, it's the name of his mother (Madeline), spelled backwards.

Cochran and Dawn reunite and are joined by Brenda and Corinne. Brenda wants to give a Final 5 offer -- herself, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn and hopefully Reynold. Dawn isn't sure about this as she doesn't really like Corinne. Corinne notes that she gets along well with Brenda and Cochran and has no reason to dislike Dawn.

In a private conversation with Dawn, Cochran asks if they should go with the Final 5 alliance or join forces with Andrea and Malcolm. Dawn wants to go with Andrea and Malcolm since she doesn't like Corinne. Cochran is willing to do the same thing but doesn't want Brenda to learn about it since that'll give her reason to turn on him!

So they go talk to Andrea and Malcolm. Andrea and Malcolm accept the two as Final 4 partners and Andrea reveals her Hidden Immunity Idol to Cochran. Cochran is happy and tells them that Reynold used his HII, so they had better look for one!

He's not the only one, however. People are looking around the beach for the new HII. Unfortunately for Cochran, however, Reynold finds the re-hidden II and now plans on keeping it a secret until he decides which option to take. But as he's hiding it, Brenda comes upon him and sees him hiding it without his knowledge.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, now it's time for the first post-merge Immunity Challenge -- and it's the gross food challenge. You need to decide who wins Immunity. I'll take votes until tomorrow and the person with the most votes will win Immunity, so please vote!

66. "RE: Merge time!"
LAST EDITED ON 06-09-13 AT 02:08 PM (EST)

The newly merged Enil Edam tribe arrives for the first post-merge IC. Probst takes back the II and reveals the Individual Immunity necklace. Then he reveals that the IC is that old chestnut, the gross food challenge. It is three rounds of competition using three different local "delicacies", and after the three rounds of competition, Cochran wins a surprisingly easy victory.

67. "Immunity Challenge #8"
The next morning, the sun rises and Cochran comes in with the tree mail. It says: "Can you stomach the stress of tribal council? Have you bitten off more than you can chew? Swallow your pride and a whole lot more or by this evening you could be through."

Everyone knows what this means: it's gross food time! Reynold tells us this will be a true test for him. He doesn’t do well eating disgusting stuff. Brenda says, "I won't be winning this challenge!"

The members of Enil Edam enter and see a table and a long sideline bench, along with flags for decor. After swapping the tribe immunity for a glimpse of the new individual immunity necklace, Jeff Probst explains the challenge.

It's an elimination race. The food may be unfamiliar but they are things that are eaten here locally every day. Slowest eaters cut from each round. The fastest of the final two is the winner of immunity and the loser joins everyone else at tribal council.

The first round is six at a time. Andrea, Corinne, Hope, Matt, Eddie and Malcolm. The other six are waiting their turn. In this first round, the first three to finish move on. The other three are out. Hope mutters, "I'll be one of them."

Probst says, "Reveal". Each plate has two ginormous beetle larva. The size of a thumb if you need a reference. They are alive. They have legs. One of the guys says his are running off the plate.

Probst says this one goes back to Season One. Malcolm says he’s going to be sick. Eddie asks if it’s going to bite him. The rule is to show Probst a completely empty mouth when finished. Everyone tosses them in and starts to chew.

Andrea finishes first, with Malcolm second. Eddie is visibly gagging as he and Matt try to avoid being out. Matt barely beats Eddie, though Eddie manages to beat out Corinne. Hope just spits hers out when she's told she's out and tries to get water.

The line-up for the second match is Reynold, Brenda, Cochran, Dawn, Michael and Julia. Cochran is fast and gets done quickly. Michael comes in second while Dawn comes in third. Brenda, Julia and Reynold are out and spit their stuff out.

The next round will also have three moving on and three moving out. The delicacy is “ships worms”. Not actually worms, Probst says, but a member of the clam family. Also known as termites of the sea, they eat through the wooden hulls of ships.

Malcolm tosses his gross food back and finishes first, followed by Cochran. Matt then comes in third, so Andrea, Dawn and Michael are all out. They join Brenda, Corinne, Eddie, Hope, Julia and Reynold on the bench.

Cochran, Malcolm and Matt make the semi-final round, where they have to eat balut. Down the hatch (no pun intended) boys. Cochran does exactly that. One, two, three, he’s done. Malcolm manages to beat out Matt for the last spot in the finale.

Probst makes a David and Goliath comment about Cochran being in contention for an individual immunity. The final delicacy is revealed. Malcolm says “it looks like brains”. Probst says that he is right. It’s pig brains.

Cochran and Malcolm do their best and soon:

Probst: Cochran wins Immunity! (Cochran cheers and Probst puts the Immunity necklace around his neck.) Cochran, you have Immunity and are safe from the vote. The rest of you, you'll have to wait until Tribal Council. Someone will be going home tonight. You have until tonight to decide who that person is. Head back and I'll see you at Tribal.

In a confessional on the way back, we hear Brenda saying that she's sure Corinne is going to be a target, but she has some tricks up her sleeve. She can convince Reynold to jump ship without having to use his Hidden Immunity Idol on Corinne, she can convince him to use it on Corinne while throwing his vote away or she can convince his fellow Fans to turn on Reynold, thus forcing Reynold to jump ship.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Cochran won Immunity. Now it's time to decide who is the last person to head to Sequesterville. Andrea and Reynold are out as they each have a Hidden Immunity Idol, but you can decide if either one uses it. The main options are Corinne or Eddie (due to Eddie's being the strongest Fan other than Reynold and his showmance with Hope, along with his desire for a threesome with Andrea). The person with the most votes will be out. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

68. "RE: Immunity Challenge #8"
Brenda wants Eddie voted out, Reynold being angry with Eddie is leaning that way and Cochran, Corrine, Malcolm, Dawn and Andrea are OK with an Eddie vote as long as Reynold keeps his word or he'll be next.

Eddie wants Malcolm out, too much alpha male competition and hopes he can get Andrea to flip. Eddie doesn't know Andrea is in a F4 with Malcolm and Andrea isn't telling him about that little detail.

Brenda works on Reynold fueling the flames and at last he commits to an Eddie vote.

Faves + Reynold = Eddie goes. Reynold clutches his HII for Mr. Cameraman and blathers about his big move that will rocket him to F3.



I should be watched....closely.

69. "RE: Immunity Challenge #8"
Back at camp, Enil Edamers of all stripes are scheming hot and heavy all afternoon. The old Bikals talk it over from all angles, and Cochran reminds them, "I know for a fact Reynold has an idol. I've heard that from three of you and also from Eddie from.their side. I think Eddie might be who we should target from their side. He's the biggest physical threat they have, and surely to goodness they'll have some physical IC's coming up." He is careful not to mention that he fears Eddie will tell the rest of the Fans that Andrea has a HII. In fact Eddie DID spill the beans about Andrea's idol, but the Fans weren't after her anyway. Several of them suggest booting Cochran, because he knows the game cold, but Eddie says to several of them, out of Reynold's hearing, "Screw that, that skinny twerp CAN'T keep winning challenges forever. Let's target Corinne. Reynold likes her, most of the Faves hate her, and I doubt like hell they'll be expecting us to target her. Should be an easy boot." The two factions and various subfactions politick all afternoon, and when they arrive at TC, nobody really knows who's voting for who and who knows what.

Probst stirs the t#rds as usual, and with dry, cloudless weather for once he keeps at it for over 2 hours. He sows a lot of nervousness, but he changes nobody's minds. No HII are played, and when the votes are counted, Cochran gets one, Reynold gets one, and Eddie and Corinne get 5 each. On the revote, Eddie still gets 5, and in fear of the purple rock Reynold throws Corinne under the bus, as does Andrea, and she gets voted out 7-5. Probst does NOT announce her as the first member of the jury, leading to raised eyebrows from several surviving castaways.

73. "Tribal Council #9"
Okay, we have a majority vote, so here are the results:

When the members of Enil Edam arrive back at camp, they all break off to do some hot and heavy plotting. The Faves all settle on a single target: Eddie. Malcolm is worried that Andrea won't go for it because Eddie is flirting with her, but Andrea says that she's willing to let Eddie go, especially since he has Hope as well.

Most of the Fans also go for a single target -- Corinne. They like her the least of the Faves. Unfortunately, Reynold likes Corinne. He's also the swing vote and everyone knows it -- including Reynold.

So the Fans do all that is in their power to get Reynold to agree to vote out Corinne, while Brenda and Corinne do all that they can to get Reynold to vote for them! As a result, Reynold feels totally torn. In a confessional, he admits that he likes Corinne and he could go to Final 3 if he joins her and Brenda but knows that if he gets that far, he'll face a jury of bitter Fans and they might never forgive him.

It's time for Tribal Council and the first one as members of Enil Edam. Jeff Probst asks how things are going as a new tribe. Eddie says that it's great for him. He gets to reunite with Hope and with Andrea around, maybe he can have a threesome. This causes Reynold to look disgusted.

Probst notes this and asks Reynold why he's so upset. Reynold says that Eddie is too busy flirting with cute girls and is failing to focus on the big picture. He points out that he lost Allie because others saw the two of them as an unbreakable couple and he's not going to make the same mistake twice!

When asked if anybody feels this is a unified tribe, nobody raises their hands. Matt notes that when it comes to voting, there are still two tribes -- Fans and Favorites. When asked if everyone sees things that way, Michael says that they should, with a glare at Reynold.

Probst then puts Reynold on the spot, asking him if he will stay loyal or not. Reynold says that his mind is already made up and they'll all find out after the vote. Cochran is then asked how it feels to win the Immunity necklace. He says that it's awesome and adds that it's especially awesome since in his season he couldn't win challenges!

Brenda is then asked if she thinks there will be a tie. She says that maybe there will be, but she hopes it won't happen and that someone from the Fans will flip.

Probst: It is time to vote. Andrea, you're up first.

Andrea votes, followed by Brenda and Cochran. Corrine votes for Eddie, saying that this isn't a dating show. Dawn votes before Eddie returns the favor, saying that nobody likes Corinne. Hope, Julia, Malcolm, Matt and Michael all vote before we see Reynold. He says that he's chosen his side.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (We see Corinne and Eddie look on.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so!

Reynold hesitates but stays put. Andrea doesn't even hesitate -- she doesn't move at all to show her HII.

Probst: Once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Corinne. Second vote ... Eddie. One vote Corinne, one vote Eddie. Third vote ... Corinne. Two votes Corinne. Fourth vote ... Eddie. We're tied -- two votes Corinne, two votes Eddie. Fifth vote ... Corinne. Three votes Corinne. Sixth vote ... Eddie. We're tied again. Three votes Corinne, three votes Eddie. Seventh vote ... Corinne. Four votes Corinne. Eighth vote ... Eddie. We're tied again. Four votes Corinne, four votes Eddie. Ninth vote ... Corinne. Tenth vote ... Eddie. We have another tie. Five votes Corinne, five votes Eddie. Eleventh vote ... Eddie. Six votes Eddie, five votes Corinne, one vote left.

Probst pulls it out and looks at the vote.

Probst: The eighth person voted out and the ninth to leave Survivor: Caramoan ... Eddie. Will you bring me your torch?

Eddie looks devastated and the other Fans all glare at Reynold as Eddie gets up, grabs his torch and heads over to Probst.

Probst: Eddie, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Eddie's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Eddie walks out, visibly unhappy.) Well, we found out that one Fan wasn't loyal and judging by the reactions, it seems that the other Fans know who it is. Time will tell whether or not the Fan made the right move. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Good night.

We see the jubilant Faves leaving, followed by Reynold and then by four very angry Fans. In Eddie's final speech, he says that he is surprised to have learned that he wouldn't be on the jury but maybe it's just as well -- at least he won't have the chance to give Reynold a bitter speech if Reynold faces the jury. We see that Reynold joined the Faves in voting out Eddie.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Eddie is out and will not be making the jury. The next challenge is a Reward one and will have four teams of five each. One person will have to sit out. I want you to decide the composition of the Orange and Purple teams, who will be sitting out and which team will win. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

Reynold draws a black rock, meaning he is out of the challenge. The Purple team wins reward, meaning they go off to enjoy their reward while the Orange team and Reynold go back to camp to stew and politick. And politick they do.

77. "First Post-Merge Reward Challenge"
Okay, we have a majority vote, so here are the results:

Enil Edam gets back from Tribal Council and the Faves are celebrating having gotten rid of Eddie. However, Brenda and Cochran cut the celebrations short by pointing out that they need to get rid of one more Fan before they can really celebrate!

Reynold shows his Hidden Immunity Idol to the camera and reveals that he's chosen his side and now he hopes he can use his HII to rocket to the Final 3! He just hopes that if he gets there, the Fans won't be too bitter.

Meanwhile, Michael is openly telling the other Fans that Reynold is a snake. He wants Reynold to be the next one voted out. When Julia points out that Reynold has a HII and he could use it to save himself, Michael says that they have to blindside him then.

Michael reveals in a confessional that he doesn't care anymore if the rest of the Fans are all sent to the jury, he just wants Reynold to go home first! Julia notes in her own confessional that if any of the true Fans outlasts Reynold, that's a victory.

The next morning, Michael begins talking to Cochran. He says that he doesn't care if the Faves send all the rest of the Fans to the jury as long as they get rid of Reynold first. Cochran says that he'll consider the idea.

Then we see him talking with Brenda, Corinne and Dawn about Michael's idea. Brenda says that while they can get rid of any Fan they wish now, Reynold now really has no option but to stick with the Faves, especially with Michael around.

Dawn notes in a confessional that they have to get rid of a Fan, but Reynold should be the last Fan to go. Corinne wants to keep Reynold around till the Final 3 since the Fans might be so bitter that they might throw her a vote or two!

Suddenly we mosey down a sleepy green river to hear “come on in guys.” It’s Jeff Probst. The locale looks like a swamp, or a tide pool, or something opaque and bug-ridden at best.

There’s an apparatus out in the water that looks like a large picture frame. There is a small table-like structure half way between the shore and the frame. There is a dock along the shore with two mats laid out. The frame's actually a giant soccer goal.

The players will divide into two teams of five. One player will try to throw a ball into the goal – while jumping into the water. A player from the opposition will be on the little table platform and will try to defend.

First team to get four in the goal, wins reward. The reward is a trip to a beautiful waterfall. The players rappel down the waterfall to find a picnic lunch at the bottom. The teams were divided by colored rocks off-camera and were as follows:

Orange:

Brenda
Corinne
Hope
Malcolm
Michael

Purple:

Andrea
Cochran
Julia
Matt
Dawn

Reynold drew a black rock and was thus out of the challenge. He sits down unhappily and Malcolm is chosen as the defender for Orange while Matt is chosen as the defender for Purple.

Andrea goes first and shoots over Malcolm's head. Purple scores. Brenda goes next and fires a shot over Matt's head. Orange scores, tying things up.

Cochran goes next and shoots his ball to the side. It manages to get past Malcolm's hand and Purple scores again! Corinne is up next for Orange and easily gets the ball over Matt's head.

Julia goes up next and fakes Malcolm out before shooting. She scores for Purple. Hope is up next for Orange -- and her shot goes way wide! No score for Orange.

Dawn can win the game for Purple on her next shot. She concentrates, she aims, she shoots, and:

Probst: Purple wins Reward! (Purple cheers and Julia and Dawn are the ones who are praised the most. Most of Orange -- and Reynold -- glare at Hope.) Purple, you'll be heading to the waterfall. Orange and Reynold, I have nothing for you. Head on back to camp. I'll see you all when you play for Immunity.

The Purple team heads off, celebrating while Reynold and the Orange team head back to camp, dejected.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Purple won Reward. Now I want you to decide who wins the Immunity Challenge. It'll be the water challenge from the regular game. The person with the most votes will win Immunity. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

78. "RE: First Post-Merge Reward Challenge"
The players arrive at Challenge Beach, where most of them recognize it as having been set up for a water challenge that has been used on several previous Survivors. JiffyProbe explains the challenge, and the players take their places. The challenge takes over an hour, and Brenda lasts the longest, thus winning immunity at a critical point in the game.

81. "Immunity Challenge #9"
Okay, we definitely have a majority vote (a unanimous one if the "Serenity" reference is to Brenda), so here are the results:

Cochran notes that the waterfall is forty or so feet tall. Rappelling is not something he does, he says. Worse, he seldom leaves his apartment. In fact, he says, he seldom leaves Twitter. Now he’s going to get plunked down a cliff on a rope. He's scared.

However, when it's time for him to take the plunge, he does so. He is clearly relieved. And, he loved it! He admits his style was not the best, but he embraced it. The picnic is laid out.

It looks nice. There is a selection of nice sandwiches and pitchers of what appear to be juice or tea. Andrea, Cochran, Dawn, Julia and Matt all dig in. Julia and Matt know that if they want to survive, they have to convince the others to get rid of Reynold.

Accordingly, Julia and Matt plead to Andrea, Cochran and Dawn for a reprieve -- they'll be happy to go to the jury if Reynold goes first. Julia notes that on the original Gota tribe, he had a showmance with Allie and worked with Eddie and Hope.

Cochran notes that while Julia and Matt were doing their best, he doesn't think that the Faves will get rid of Reynold any time soon -- not when they have bigger fish to fry! After all, there are still four other "true" Fans in the game.

Back at camp, Hope apologizes for screwing up the challenge. Michael doesn't pummel her for it but Brenda, Corinne and Malcolm aren't too happy with her. Reynold is the one who is pummeling Hope the most but stops when Brenda points out that Hope is on the verge of tears.

Hope leaves to go to the ocean and wash off any tears while Reynold goes to get some firewood. Michael starts pleading for the three Faves to toss Reynold before going after one of the other Fans.

Malcolm admits in a confessional that it is tempting to toss Reynold but there are too many other Fans around. Corinne wants Reynold around for the Final 3, so there's no way she's going to go for the plan.

Time skips to Day 25 on Enil Edam. Brenda, Corinne and Reynold are talking about future plans. Right now the target is most likely Michael, since he's the strongest Fan left, although Hope is also an outside possibility.

Then they plan to get rid of at least one more Fan before deciding whether to pause the Pagonging so as to get rid of Malcolm as he's the strongest non-Fan or to wait until the last Fan is gone before doing so.

In a confessional, Brenda thinks that they have to find out if anybody who had been on Gota when the Hidden Immunity Idol was re-hidden had found it. If it's Malcolm, they will go after Andrea or Cochran. If not, Malcolm is going as soon as it's safe to get rid of him.

We now switch to the Immunity Challenge. We’re back in the lagoon or river. Jeff is on the dock. The players are standing on a float/raft. The challenge is to remain calm in spite of obvious clues to panic.

Everyone takes a spot in the water. They each take a spot under a grating. They must stay there. The tide will rise and the space between the surface of the water and the grating will become smaller until it’s gone.

Last person to stay under the grate, wins. They cannot stand under the grate. They have to stay under the grate, so they cannot allow themselves to just float away. They have to, therefore, hold on somehow. People begin panicking.

At the point Jeff starts messing with their minds, there is a six inch gap between the water and the grate. The tide rises until there's only a three-inch gap! Thirty minutes have passed.

Jeff continues to tell them that the water is filling their ears and that there is nowhere to turn. Brenda simply meditates. At one hour of elapsed time, there is only about one inch of space left and there are some players holding their noses!

The sounds of coughing begin and Corinne is the first one out, apparently because a wave got her. Matt and Hope follow her. Dawn struggles and fights but finally can't continue, and Malcolm follows her by choosing to come up outside the grid.

Our first panic case is Michael. He was trying but as his nose filled with water he had to give up. The water level is now a negative number. It’s above the grate. Julia gives up, followed by Cochran and Reynold.

Andrea and Brenda are the last two left standing. Brenda is still as a stone. Seeing this and aware that she has the HII and thus can save herself, Andrea fights for a minute or two but then gives in:

Probst: Brenda wins Immunity! (But Brenda was so far into the zone that two men have to jump into the water to tell her to quit. Once she's back on dry land, Probst gives her the Immunity necklace.) Brenda won Immunity and is safe from the vote tonight. The rest of you aren't and one of you will be making the jury. You have until tonight to decide who goes there. Grab your torches and I'll see you tonight.

As the contestants head back, we see Brenda say that because Andrea didn't really try hard she thinks Andrea might have the HII, but she wants to make sure so she's going to spy on Andrea. If Andrea has the HII, Brenda won't go after her -- yet.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Brenda has Immunity. Andrea and Reynold each have a Hidden Immunity Idol. None of them can be voted out. But the others can be! I want you to decide who will be the first member of the jury. The main choices are Michael (strongest true Fan left) or Hope (Eddie's showmance), although the true Fans can vote for a Fave or for Reynold. The one between Hope and Michael who gets the most votes will be the first member of the jury. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

82. "RE: Immunity Challenge #9"
The scheming and politicking, ever present in this most political Survivor in years, erupt like thunderstorms on a weather radar in Tornado Alley when the players get back to camp. There is talk of blindsiding Reynold, but the beans have been spilled on his having an idol to the point that not only does everybody know he has an idol, but he knows they know. Brenda spies on Andrea and finds out she has an idol, but does not spill the beans. During the politicking and scheming she tries to steer the discussion to other targets, not wanting an idol bounce to take out a Fave. The faves discuss every Fan other than Reynold, but soon turn to debating between Hope (who had been Eddie's showmance and they fear could become Reynold's if he gets interested) and Michael (who seems somewhat naive for an alleged Fan but is the Fans' strongest remaining physical threat). The Fans try but fail to discover who has the idol Reynold doesn't have, and they argue like hell but reach no agreement on who to target.

They all arrive at TC, where Jeffo stirs the t#rds vigorously for over an hour, then says, "Well, after all that, I have no idea WHAT in the hell is gonna happen. It IS time to vote." They vote, Probst gets the urn and delivers the usual HII spiel, but no idols are played. Malcolm gets 2 votes, Andrea, Corinne and Cochran get 1 each, Hope gets 1, and Michael gets the remaining 5 votes and is eliminated.

After catching wind that he's a choice on the boot altar Michael tells Jiffy that he's the only fan and the rest of them are glory hounds, mactors & minor wannabes. Everyone votes Michael out, even the other "Fans".

84. "Tribal Council #10"
Okay, we have a unanimous vote, so here are the results:

Back at Enil Edam, the scheming begins. Although Michael wants to go after Reynold, Julia says that the Faves all probably know that he has a Hidden Immunity Idol, so going after him won't work.

So the target shifts to the other Faves. Corinne and Malcolm are the targets that they ultimately decide on. Although Corinne is a pain in the neck, Malcolm is stronger in challenges than she is.

Since Julia and Matt have revealed that neither they nor Eddie found the HII when it was re-hidden, the Fans realize that one of the Faves has the HII, and this makes them all wonder if they should go after Malcolm or not.

Meanwhile, the Faves (along with Reynold) quickly limit their candidates to Hope (due to the showmance with Eddie) or Michael, the strongest Fan in physical challenges. In the end, they choose Michael because of his intense dislike for Reynold.

Brenda secretly spies on Andrea and finds out that Andrea has the Hidden Immunity Idol. She keeps the knowledge to herself -- for now, since the Faves have bigger fish to fry, but she plans to use the knowledge later on to get rid of Malcolm.

We then get back to the scheming and plotting. Ultimately, the Fans decide to have two of them vote for Malcolm but give the other two votes to Andrea just in case Malcolm has the HII. They don't think Dawn has it.

Meanwhile, Brenda comes up with a scheme of her own. She plans to have Hope get two votes while Michael gets the other five. The other Faves (and Reynold) all agree to the plan and call it "divide and conquer".

At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst asks those who went on Reward what it was like. Cochran reveals that he was pretty nervous about rappelling down, as he's not a rough-and-tumble guy, as Ozzy would point out! Everyone laughs at that.

Andrea and Dawn say that they had a good time at the Reward but Andrea adds that they didn't leave the Reward empty-handed, hinting that they smuggled food out for the ones who went back to camp.

Julia is asked whether she thinks she is safe. She says that she doesn't think she's first on the target list for the Faves but she won't know for sure until the votes are counted. Matt agrees and adds that he thinks Hope and Michael are ahead of him and Julia.

When asked if they agree, Hope says she's not sure about herself since Matt might be stronger but she's sure Michael is ahead of Julia and Matt. Michael says that he hopes the Faves will get rid of Reynold for him.

The Faves are asked who the target is. Cochran confirms that Hope and Michael are the targets and dashes Michael's hopes by saying that Reynold is safe -- for now. Reynold is happy to know that he's safe.

Probst then has everyone vote. We see Julia vote for Malcolm and explain that he's the strongest Fave. Michael votes for Andrea and expresses his regret that the vote isn't for Reynold. Hope votes for Andrea and Matt votes for Malcolm without our hearing any comments from them.

Andrea votes without saying anything. Brenda votes for Hope, saying that it's all part of the plan. Cochran votes without saying anything. Corinne votes for Hope but doesn't comment. Dawn shows her vote for Michael but doesn't comment. Malcolm then votes before Reynold votes for Michael, saying that he's had enough of Michael's attitude.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Andrea, Hope, Malcolm and Michael are all shown.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so. (Neither Andrea nor Reynold move.) Okay, once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes.

Andrea, Hope, Malcolm and Michael are shown looking on.

Probst: First vote -- Andrea. Second vote ... Hope. Third vote ... Malcolm. Fourth vote ... Michael. That's one vote Andrea, one vote Hope, one vote Malcolm and one vote Michael. Fifth vote ... Andrea. Two votes Andrea. Sixth vote ... Hope. That's two votes Andrea, two votes Hope. Seventh vote ... Malcolm. Two votes Malcolm. Eighth vote ... Michael. We're tied. Two votes Andrea, two votes Hope, two votes Malcolm, two votes Michael. Ninth vote ... Michael.

Michael nods at this point, apparently resigned to what was coming.

Probst: Tenth vote ... Michael. That's four votes Michael, two votes Andrea, two votes Hope, two votes Malcolm, one vote left. (He pulls it out.) The tenth person voted out and the first member of our jury ... Michael. Will you bring me your torch?

Michael gets up, hugs his allies and grabs his torch before heading over to Probst.

Probst: Michael, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Michael's torch.) It's time to go. (Michael walks out.) Well, we can pretty well tell who the next Fan is who'll be targeted and who might be the first Faves on the chopping block. But things could change. Grab your stuff and head back to camp. Good night.

The Final 10 head back to camp. In his final words, Michael goes into a rant against Reynold for turning on the Fans. Andrea, Cochran and Malcolm all voted against Michael along with Corinne and Reynold.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Michael has been voted out. Next is the food auction and you have to decide who gets what reward -- including who gets the all-important Immunity advantage. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

85. "RE: Tribal Council #10"
I don't remember what the other rewards are at the auction, but I do remember who won the immunity advantage. I'll vote to change that. I vote that as the players bid on the various auction items, several of them notice Cochran laying in the weeds bidding on nothing. They also notice Julia doing the same thing. As the auction moves along, Hope and Matt figure out what Cochran is up to, and Hope catches Julia's eye. Hope raises her eyebrows, Julia nods her head very slightly, and Cochran sees neither. Probst pulls out a sealed envelope which he says holds an advantage in the next IC. He does not give any details, and before Cochran can open his mouth, before Probst even stops talking, Julia says "Five hundred". Cochran says "Dammit" under his breath, the first time anybody there has ever heard him cuss. Probst auctions off a couple more meaningless items, sells letters from home to anybody with 20 bucks left, then closes the auction. Back at camp Cochran asks Julia how she figured out what he was up to, and she says "There's always something huge towards the end of this auction, and knowing the game like you do, you're the kind of guy who would be laying in the weeds hoping for a game advantage or a really huge reward. I decided I can put up with the current level of hunger for the week and change we have left out here, so I was gonna save all my money and bid it all on something I thought might be this big near the end." Cochran says, "You're not a fan, you're a master."

86. "Food Auction Reward"
Okay, it's a brand-new day and there's only one vote, so here are the results:

During the after-party, Julia points out the obvious. Two Fans are gone, one jumped ship, and the others are in grave danger. Even if one of them wins Immunity, the others are dead meat!

Brenda notes that things are going well so far. She wants to get rid of one more Fan before turning on either Cochran or Malcolm. Malcolm is a challenge threat while Cochran is a strategic one!

Reynold says that he's sitting pretty. If all goes according to plan, he'll face the jury and he thinks he can still win by pointing out that he was the only Fan left. It might get some votes from the Fans on the jury -- except for Michael.

The next morning, several people are discussing how poorly they slept last night and how tired they are this morning. Cochran now speaks to us, pointing out that as the ultimate fan of Survivor, he's always on the alert for shifts in the wind.

Cochran also reveals just how debilitated the tribe has become physically. He tells us they are hungry. The camera guy reinforces that with shots of shrunken bellies. He adds that spirits are low. We then see Dawn near tears.

Then we see Dawn actually weeping. Brenda goes over to check on her. Dawn takes some water from Brenda and then tries to compose herself. She notes that she's wearing down emotionally.

Malcolm notes that everyone has lost a huge amount of weight -- including himself -- and that they all have to keep drinking lots of water. He's not sure if it's worse for the big, strong guys or for the weaker girls.

Cochran and Dawn come in with “guys, we have some tree mail.” There is a fair amount of cheering, which increases when envelopes are given out. Cochran knows what this means -- it's food auction time!

The little “clue” is cute. It just says “Cash. Do you really need a poem?” Julia doesn't. She also knows that the food auction is near -- and she also knows that there's going to be some advantage. She plans to hold out for an Immunity advantage.

We fly over the rainforest to the pier along the lagoon/river. There is Jeff Probst with his standard “come on in guys.” He has his gavel. Each person has $500 and can bid in $20 increments. They can't share money or food.

The auction will end without any warning. Only Cochran and Julia aren't grinning or chewing on their money. The first bid is a single bottle of beer and a modest bowl of peanuts. He’s in the process of asking for $20.

And just as Probst finishes setting the stuff on the table, Malcolm jumps up to bid! No one else is willing to bid, so Malcolm gets the reward. Malcolm also gets two more beers, a bucket of ice and even more nuts!

Malcolm wonders if he just shot himself in the foot for a beer (or three) and some nuts, but then decides that he's hungry enough that he doesn't care. He hauls his booty back and begins chowing down on the nuts.

The next item is covered. Andrea, Dawn, Hope and Matt all bid. Dawn almost got it for $160. But as Probst is bringing down the hammer, Reynold jumps in with $180. Dawn won't go any further, so it's sold.

But wait. Before Probst reveals what Reynold has purchased for $180, he brings out a second covered item. Reynold may trade blind. OR –- Probst brings out a third covered item which is available as an alternative.

Cochran makes a comment to Reynold about the Monte Hall twist. You are always supposed to switch. Reynold says “I don’t trust you, Cochran.” So, Reynold sticks with the initial purchase. He says it’s his gut telling him to.

Option #3 was a raw coconut, so that's the good news. The not-so-good news is that Option #2 was the rest of the pizza! He says that either the rest of the pizza can go to the whole tribe or someone can bid on it.

Immediately, Brenda bids all her money for it! And it's hers! Probst makes Brenda take one slice just to arouse jealousy, then points out that it's all her money! She notes that she doesn't really care.

The next bid is plump roasted chicken. Immediately Dawn bids all her money on it as well, so it's hers! She happily rushes down and when Probst has her take a bite, she grabs the whole chicken by one leg and chomps down on it!

The next bid is covered as well. Corinne bids all her money on it. It turns out to be spaghetti and meatballs -- and she can either have it for herself or share it with the rest of her tribe. She decides to share it with the rest of her tribe.

The next item is also covered and Hope bids $100, but Andrea bids $200. Matt bids $240 but Andrea bids $280 -- and wins! Her prize is a chocolate cake which she can either eat or trade for a bag of rice and a bag of beans. She trades it for the two bags.

The next item is some advantage. Cochran and Julia immediately jump for it! But Cochran only bids $480 and Julia bids all her money! Julia wins and it's a small sealed scroll which must stay sealed until the next Immunity Challenge.

The bidding is back on. It's also covered and Cochran gets it for $300. Unfortunately for him, it's pig brains. He doesn't mind, however, and chomps on it. Brenda is openly relieved she went for the pizza!

Next, it's the letters from home. They can get them for $20. Andrea, Cochran, Hope, Malcolm and Matt bid for them because they all have money left. Dawn is upset and Brenda sympathizes. Reynold delivers the letters, which will be opened back at camp.

Another (covered) item appears. Matt bids $200 and gets a giant bowl of peanut butter -- which must be shared with the rest of the tribe! The tribe has 60 seconds to empty the bowl.

If the peanut butter is in the mouth, on the hands, smeared on the face or body, it can go back to camp. What is left in the bowl, stays with Jeff. Everyone eats as much as they can and the auction is over.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Julia won the advantage and I had Cochran get the pigs' brains while Brenda got the pizza. Next up is the Immunity Challenge. Julia has the advantage, so I want you to decide whether she wins Immunity or someone else does. The person with the most votes will win Immunity. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

87. "RE: Food Auction Reward"
Back at camp after the auction, Malcolm says, "Cochran, you dumb $hit, why the f--- did you leave any room on that?" Cochran says, "I knew there would probably be letters from home for 20 bucks, and I didn't expect any woman to use up all her money and not be able to buy that." Julia says, "You forget, I'm a race car driver, I'm tough. I know I'm gonna see them in less than 2 weeks, and in less than that if they do a family visit and I'm still here. I can wait." Cochran says, "You're the first woman I've ever seen in 26 seasons of Survivor who can control her emotions well enough to think like that after almost a month out here." At this Dawn flips out, cusses Cochran up one side and down the other, and then says, "John Cochran, you spineless little weasel, I'm gonna stay in this game longer than you if it's the last thing I do."

They all show up at the next IC, and after getting the IN back, Probst asks Julia to read her scroll, she does, then he explains the challenge. Julia makes her advantage stick, barely winning the IC. Cochran says to himself under his breath, "Cochran, you idiot, that 20 bucks is gonna get you beat yet", and they all head back to camp.

88. "RE: Food Auction Reward"
Okay, it's a brand-new day and there's only one vote, so here are the results:

On the way back, Malcolm asks, "Cochran, why didn't you put all your money on the Immunity Advantage? If you had, none of the Fans would have had an advantage in the next Immunity Challenge?"

"Because I figured there would be letters from home," said Cochran. "I didn't think that any of the Fans would want to give up letters from home! I should have known better -- their backs were against the wall, after all!"

"Yes, you should have," Julia said. "I'm a race car driver after all. I was deliberately waiting for the Immunity advantage so I could put all my money on it! Also, I'll see my family in at least two weeks, less if I make the family visit. I can wait."

That's when Cochran makes the mistake of saying, "You're the first woman I've ever seen in 26 seasons of Survivor who can control her emotions well enough to think like that after almost a month out here."

At that point, Dawn flips out, cusses Cochran up one side and down the other, and then says, "John Cochran, you spineless little weasel, I'm gonna stay in this game longer than you if it's the last thing I do." Cochran has to apologize as a result.

Its day 29 and the survivors are scraping redundant peanut butter off their bodies into a coconut shell. Reynold says there has been a turnaround. Thanks to the food, they have gone from morose and hungry to upbeat and well fed for the duration.

The letters from home have brought most people, even our strong as steel Cochran, to tears. Hope says that she hopes to stay long enough to see her family. Matt says that if they get rid of Cochran, all of them might get to see their family!

Brenda is aware of Cochran's ill-timed comment and plans to use it to her advantage by promising the Fans who don't win Immunity safety for three more days if they all vote with her, Corinne and Reynold to get rid of Cochran.

She suggests the plan to her fellow allies, who basically shrug and say "As long as it isn't me." Reynold says that if they get rid of a known strategist, it might help his own chances of making the jury, and Corinne agrees.

It's the next day and we head over to a sand clearing! There are nine contraptions lined up on the sand. It’s the endurance immunity challenge. The contraption is a platform on which to stand.

There is a heavy log lever sticking out with a breakable tiki head under it. The logs are held up by a rope which the survivor will hold. Only the survivor’s strength will keep the log from falling onto the tiki head.

The rope itself has knots in it for measuring purposes. In the beginning the survivor holds a knot that is quite a way up the rope. That keeps the logs at a high angle.

At intervals the survivor has to move down the rope toward the end. That lowers the angle of the logs and makes it harder to hold. Last one holding the logs and having an unbroken tiki-head, wins immunity.

Since Julia won an Immunity advantage, she gets to read the scroll and see what it is. At any point in the competition, she may move her hands back up the rope by two knots. Cochran openly groans, saying "20 bucks! 20 freaking bucks!"

The rope holding is one handed. One at a time, anyway. The weight of the logs is 1/3 of the starting weight of the player holding the rope. The knot change is in five minute intervals. At ten minutes, Julia uses her advantage to return to the top.

At 25 minutes, it's down to the last knot (except for Julia, of course). Brenda tries to get into the zone, but falls off the platform and drops the rope. Hope follows Brenda soon afterwards, as she just couldn't hold on.

At 30 minutes, they all move again and there are no more knots, just slick rope. Except for Julia, who is up the rope a by two knots and will, I guess, continue to have the advantage of a knot below her hand.

Andrea drops out. Dawn struggles and then slips, eliminating herself. Reynold slips and is eliminated as well, and it's down to Cochran (who is really struggling), Julia (who got to the rope) and Matt.

Cochran finally slips and is out. Matt looks at Julia and gives up:

Jeff Probst: Julia wins Immunity! (Julia cheers as Cochran groans openly. Probst gives Julia the Immunity necklace). Julia, you have Immunity and are safe from the vote. The rest of you are at risk, however! You have all day to figure out who will be joining Michael on the jury. I'll see you at Tribal.

In a confessional, Cochran says that he hopes the fact that Hope and Matt are still in the game will deter the others from going after him! He also plans to make up to Dawn just to make sure he's safe.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Julia won Immunity and is safe from the vote. Andrea and Reynold each have a Hidden Immunity Idol and are safe as well. Now it's time for you to decide who will be joining Michael on the jury. The main targets are Matt (he's the strongest Fan), Hope (thanks to her showmance issues) and Cochran (thanks to his ill-advised comment to Julia which upset Dawn). I want you to decide which one of them joins Michael on the jury. The person with the most votes will be out. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

89. "RE: Food Auction Reward"
LAST EDITED ON 06-16-13 AT 02:25 PM (EST)

Believing that Cochran will be too dangerous at FTC because of his legal training, the Faves decide to blindside one of their own. Dawn is on the fence and wants to blindside Reynold. Malcolm points out that Reynold has the HII, as long as they know where it is they have control. If he plays it or goes to the Ponderosa with it, chances are another will be hidden and someone would have to find it. During many discussions Reynold catches on that his name has been brought up, wonders whether he will need to save himself at Tribal. Dawn eventually comes around on the Cochran blindside. Cochran has been lead to believe Matt is on the chopping block.

90. "RE: Food Auction Reward"
As they get back to camp, Cochran knows he's in deep $hit, both because of his ill timed insertion of his foot into his mouth and his reputation for knowing the game. Several others try to make him think they're after Matt, but Cochran is having none of it, and he lets them know that in no uncertain terms. Besides Cochran and Matt, the name of Hope is brought up due to her history of showmances, and their fear she might pursue one with Reynold, a known idol holder. Reynold is also.discussed, but the others decide they prefer for now to know where at least one idol is and decide not to boot him yet.

At TC, JiffyProbe stirs the manure vigorously for a couple hours, but when he calls for the vote he has no idea who will get booted. Cochran had lawyered his arse off for most of those two hours, and had sown a lot of doubt, but Jiffy and several other players had sown some seeds themselves. Probst brings back the urn and does the spiels, but no idols are played. Viewers watching while the credits roll see that all four Fans vote to boot Cochran, Cochran, Andrea, Malcolm and Corinne vote to boot Hope, and Brenda and Dawn vote to make Cochran pay for putting his foot in his mouth, resulting in Cochran getting the boot by a vote of 6-4 and becoming the second member of the jury.

92. "RE: Food Auction Reward"
Okay, we have two votes and although it's early, it's enough for me to decide what the results are:

After we come back from the Immunity Challenge, we hear Julia do a confessional. She is delighted to have Immunity but is worried that either Matt or Hope will be on the chopping block.

However, Cochran is really concerned! He's sure that he's in trouble with Dawn thanks to his ill-timed comments and he fears Brenda might go after him because he knows so much about the game.

The Fans quickly decide to target Cochran. They would have gone for Malcolm but they know Cochran doesn't have a Hidden Immunity Idol and he's more of a threat at Final Tribal Council than Brenda. Reynold is present and agrees to target Cochran as well.

Andrea, Brenda, Corinne, Dawn and Malcolm all talk about who they should vote for. The options are Matt and Cochran. Malcolm is all for getting rid of Matt as Matt is the strongest Fan left.

However, Dawn has had enough of Cochran afer his ill-timed comment that she's all for getting rid of him right now! Brenda says that she'll vote for Cochran, ostensibly just to keep Dawn happy.

However, in a confessional, she reveals that this is going better than she intended! If Dawn leads the charge to get rid of Cochran, this would help Brenda if she and Dawn had to face the jury and Cochran was on it.

Cochran isn't a dummy and he quickly senses the shift in mood. He desperately tries to get Andrea, Brenda and Corinne to vote out Matt. Although Andrea's willing to consider getting rid of Matt, Brenda and Corinne prove less willing.

However, at least they are considerate when compared to Dawn. When Cochran tries to make up to Dawn, she lets him have it and tells him that she'll be voting for him no matter what. Cochran hopes Brenda and Corinne will join him in voting out Matt.

Brenda and Corinne approach Hope, Julia and Matt and ask them who they plan on voting for. When Julia reveals that it's Cochran, Brenda and Corinne reveal that they'll be voting out Cochran as well, much to the delight of the Fans.

At Tribal Council, after Michael is brought out, Jeff Probst asks how everyone feels physically. Reynold says that with more beans and rice, everyone is relatively well-fed, are less exhausted, and can do more work.

When asked how people feel emotionally, Hope says that most of the depression had been alleviated, but some are more happy than others. She points to Julia, saying that winning Immunity made Julia more happy.

Then asked if anybody feels more depressed or more desperate, Cochran promptly raises his hand. He says that he made one false move and now people are gunning after him.

Dawn reveals the conversation Cochran had with Julia that began the whole thing. She says that she knows she has trouble controlling her emotions but she doesn't need to be reminded of it constantly, implying that Cochran has done this before.

Cochran begs the other Faves to remember that Hope and Matt are fans and that they can't allow them or Julia a chance to get back into the game. Brenda reminds him that they still have a 5-4 advantage (technically).

When asked who else feels unsafe besides Cochran, we see Brenda, Corinne, Hope, Malcolm, Matt and Reynold all raise their hands. Hope and Matt explain that they're Fans and at least one of them is bound to get a vote against them!

Corinne and Malcolm note that they got votes against them and that's why they don't feel safe. Brenda and Reynold say that while they doubt they're on the chopping block, they can't be 100% sure until they don't see any votes against them.

Probst: It is time to vote. Andrea, you're up first.

Andrea votes and reveals a vote for Matt, saying that he's the strongest Fan left. She is followed by Brenda and then Cochran, who just holds up a vote for Matt. Corinne is next and then we see Dawn vote for Cochran, saying that she's had enough of him. Hope also votes for Cochran but her explanation isn't shown. We don't see who Julia voted for. Malcolm votes for Matt but Matt votes for Cochran.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Matt looks nervous, Cochran just looks depressed.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so.

Andrea and Reynold don't move.

Probst: Okay, once the votes are read the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Cochran. Second vote ... Matt. One vote Cochran, one vote Matt. Third vote ... Cochran. Two votes Cochran. Fourth vote ... Matt. We're tied. Two votes Cochran, two votes Matt. Sixth vote ... Cochran. Three votes Cochran. Seventh vote ... Matt. We're tied again. Three votes Cochran, three votes Matt. Seventh vote ... Cochran. Eighth vote ... Cochran. That's five votes Cochran, three votes Matt. Ninth vote ... the eleventh person voted out and the second member of the jury ... Cochran. That's nine, that's enough. Will you bring me your torch?

A resigned Cochran gets up, grabs his torch and heads over to Probst.

Probst: Cochran, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Cochran's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Cochran walks out, clearly depressed.) Well, some of the Fans decided to target one of their own and spare the Fans. We'll see how it works out for you. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Good night.

The remaining Enil Edam members head off. In his final words, Cochran says that he knew during Tribal Council that he hadn't convinced Brenda or Corinne to help him. He has no hard feelings because he knows he is partly to blame for his own demise. We see that Brenda and Corinne voted for Cochran.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Cochran is gone -- and incidentally, I was planning on having him go after Matt, but I'm not complaining that he went a bit early. Next up is an Immunity Challenge as part of the double elimination episode. I want you to decide who wins Immunity. The person with the most votes will win Immunity. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

LAST EDITED ON 06-17-13 AT 09:41 AM (EST)

The tribe returns to camp after TC, with 9 members left and the Faves' advantage having been trimmed to 5-4. The Faves know they cannot afford any more losses, and being down to one man leaves them in a bit of a precarious position in the event of a physical IC. In the morning both Andrea and Hope do some flirting with Reynold, and the others notice. Then tree mail arrives summoning the players to an IC.

The players arrive at the challenge location, Jiffy takes back the IN, and explains the IC. As the Faves had feared, it is a pretty physical, demanding water challenge, but the one man they have left, Malcolm, has the stones and the physical skills to handle it, and he wins the multi-stage contest with ease. After they all get back to camp, he celebrates by doing a little flirting of his own with Andrea and Hope, and that also gets noticed, as Reynold's flirting in the morning had. Then the scheming begins.

We get an overhead shot of Malcolm and Andrea getting all cozy behind a rock and whispering about what a moron Dawn is for destroying their F4 by voting Cochran out the night before.

Malcolm swears revenge, and in a confessional Andrea wonders if Malcolm is starting to go native from so much time on the islands between this season and last. She hopes she can hold him together and find another couple of people to pad her alliance.

Malcolm's determination and his crazy eyed look give him the edge in the challenge and he wins Immunity, much to the consternation of Fans Matt, Hope & Julia who are hanging out in the wind.

Dawn, on the other hand spends the afternoon blubbering and telling anyone who'll listen that her teeth are loose.


I should be watched....closely.

96. "Double Elimination Immunity Challenge #1"
LAST EDITED ON 06-18-13 AT 12:30 PM (EST)

I mistakenly skipped a round, but I'll do it after the double elimination one. So, with a unanimous vote, here are the results:

Later that night, Andrea and Malcolm whisper over how dumb Dawn was to screw up her Final 4 chance over one dumb comment by Cochran. Malcolm wants revenge but Andrea tells him, "Not yet. We still have four Fans to get rid of."

Hope, Julia and Matt are all celebrating having gotten rid of a Fave but the celebration is cut short by the reminder that with Reynold firmly with the Fans, they're still down by two and they need to pry Reynold away from the Faves or else they're doomed.

Brenda does a confessional. She says that they can't afford to lose another Fave. The Pagonging has been postponed for a round, but in the next round, another Fan is going to the jury.

We cut to Day 28. The monkeys are having breakfast and Malcolm is chopping wood. Reynold has joined the monkeys in eating fruit for breakfast. Then Dawn and Matt come in with tree mail.

It’s one of the famous survivor rhyming clues but in effect it warns of shaky footing and losing balance and that tonight you could lose your flame. They all know it means an early Tribal Council.

Reynold mentions that since Michael was gone, the other three Fans have been nicer to him but he already has a ride to the Final 3. He's sure that the other Fans won't take him to the Final 3, therefore, he's staying put.

And here we are in the lagoon at the edge of the open ocean. There eight nicely colored rafts floating out on the blue. Each has a roof shaped top. There are horizontal rods on the slanted sides.

The players will start out straddling the “roof” with their bare feet gripping the cross pieces. After a time, Jeff Probst will call them to move up to the next set of boards. Those are closer together.

Finally they will be standing on the ridge of the “roof”. That means their feet are together. The last person left standing wins Immunity while the others simply try to avoid going to the jury.

All the players are aboard their houses. The wind is blowing. The rafts are bobbing. And Probst comes around the corner with a plate of donuts and a glass of ice cold milk. It's bribery time.

When told that the donuts are "fresh", Reynold immediately bails, followed by Andrea. Probst asks if this means they feel that they are safe. Andrea says she was just hungry. Reynold says that he didn't think he could win Immunity.

It’s been 15 minutes. The players are allowed to sit while they move their feet up to the next perch. They get settled. Matt wobbles a bit before finding his center. Then Jeff shows up with three hot dogs and a soft drink.

Matt is about to pass it up but then loses his balance and falls off the perch. He says, "Sorry, Hope and Julia," as he heads over to get the hot dogs and soft drink. He says in a confessional that either he or Hope are first on the chopping block.

Malcolm has to do a windmill thing to regain his balance. Dawn is as steady as a rock. It’s been 30 minutes and Brenda wobbles a little. She’s okay and says so. It’s time to move up to the ridge of the roof.

No sitting down is offered. They have a few seconds to make the move and Jeff counts it down. Everyone is struggling now. Julia is shaking and Hope gets taken by the wind. Then Julia succumbs.

Seeing that the last Fan is down, Brenda, Corinne and Dawn look at each other, nod and all jump off:

Probst: Malcolm wins Immunity! (Malcolm cheers and then falls off. He swims to shore and joins the others before Probst gives him the Immunity necklace.) Malcolm has won Immunity and is safe from the vote. The rest of you aren't safe and one of you will join Michael and Cochran on the jury. You have the rest of the day to decide who it is. Good luck and I'll see you at Tribal.

The jubilant Faves head back, followed by a content Reynold and a dejected Hope, Julia and Matt.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Malcolm has won Immunity and is safe from the vote. Andrea and Reynold each have a Hidden Immunity Idol and can't be voted out unless you want one of them to be blindsided -- though I don't, yet. You need to decide who is going to join Michael and Cochran on the jury. The main candidates are Matt, Julia and Hope. The one who has the most votes between them will be the third member of the jury. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

97. "RE: Double Elimination Immunity Challenge #1"
A deal to give Malcolm immunity?!? Is Brenda hoping for a little more than a donut? Did Corrine skip immunity for a long term alliance-mate. Did Dawn just finish losing her mind. Stay tuned...

Malcolm, wearing his Immunity necklace like a tiara wonders if Brenda, Dawn & Corrine are just softening him up for the big boot and he even contemplates rounding up a back up alliance knowing he's got a big bulls-eye on his tookus.

He approaches Andrea with the idea of unloading Dawn because he feels that Dawn is such an emotional wreck that she might flip and vote him out as soon as he's not covered by Immunity and that starts Andrea thinking.

At TC the mighty Malcolm gets his wish and Dawn is sent to the Jury.


I should be watched....closely.

98. "RE: Double Elimination Immunity Challenge #1"
The politicking is going hot and heavy in the afternoon after the challenge, with all involved knowing there have to be 7 more TC's in the next week and a half to finish the game. Matt, Julia and Hope are hashing over their woefully weak position as the remaining loyal Fans. With Reynold obviously disloyal and having for all intents and purposes joined the Faves, the last 3 loyal fans are up Poop Creek and they know it. Matt grumbles, "The.3 people I most want to get out, and we all know one has an idol, one just won the IC, and the third is acting so cocky she makes me think she has another idol. We're f---ed like a brothel employee and there's nothing we can do about it." Meanwhile the Faves are hashing out whether to throw Reynold under the bus to smoke out his idol, or just straight up boot out Hope or Matt. Malcolm grumbles that "you damn women cost us our best strategy man because of your damn thin skins when we should have got rid of another Fan first, especially Matt." Of course Dawn gets pi$$ed at him, but he tells her, "Go pound salt up your bottom, I'm tired putting up with stupid people affecting my game after 64 days out here with only 2 weeks off in between. If I didn't think it would put me in bigger danger I would unite with the Fans against you, Dawn, and vote you out."

At TC Probst stirs things up as usual, and they vote. No idols get played when he gives them the opportunity. Dawn's emotions have started to wear on people pretty heavily and all 4 Fans vote for her, but the Faves manage to all put their squabbling on the back burner long enough to all vote for Matt, and he is eliminated by a 5-4 vote.

99. "RE: Double Elimination Immunity Challenge #1"
Back at camp Andrea and Brenda get together and discuss voting strategy. They realize that despite losing today, Hope and Julia are their own biggest challenge competition, they should try to dump one of them. As long as they have Corinne, Malcolm and Reynold around to counter Matt, they don't have to worry about him just yet.

Meanwhile, Malcolm and Reynold have come to the easy decision that it is Matt's turn to go and have spoken to Corinne and Dawn, who say they will let them know after they find out where the others stand. When the four women get together Andrea explains it has to be Hope or Julia but they couldn't decide. Corinne says the four of them should be a women's alliance from now on, they just can't let the guys know. This troubles Dawn, she doesn't know if they can let it get down to the four of them having to beat Malcolm and Reynold. Corinne says they won't let it get to that, decides Julia has to go. Julia is the smarter player and is better in challenges.

Hope, Julia and Matt meanwhile have gotten together to talk strategy knowing their chances aren't good. They have decided to target Dawn and make it clear to everyone they are gunning for Dawn, do everything they can all the rest of the afternoon to push Dawn over the edge so that she will be an emotional basket case by the time they get to Tribal. Matt cautions they can't be seen to be mean about it, they think Dawn just can't handle the game and would be better off personally on the jury away from the stress of the game.

Their plan succeeds, by the time they get to TC Dawn is at the breaking point, and even says she's having a hard time even knowing what to say anymore. Corinne pays attention and jumps in from time to time while Dawn is talking, cuts her off. Malcolm says the game just gets harder and harder. Everyone really cares about one another at this point, it's like they've gotten to a point of do they vote out family or friend? Hope injects that sometimes you have to have tough love and do the tough thing because "well, it's no secret we're voting for Dawn because the game is breaking her apart, it's for her own good." Dawn says she's still in the game, she means to win it.

When the votes are counted it is 3 for Dawn, 6 for Julia.

105. "RE: Double Elimination Tribal Council #1"
LAST EDITED ON 06-18-13 AT 08:44 PM (EST)

Okay, I did a best two-out-of-three run on a random list generator for two of the three people in a three-way-tie and here are the results:

When the Survivors return to Enil Edam camp, they split up and begin plotting. Hope, Julia and Matt are torn between Dawn and Andrea but since they believe Dawn doesn't have the Hidden Immunity Idol, they quickly settle on her.

The Faves plus Reynold huddle together as well. Although Malcolm would be happy to get rid of Dawn, Brenda points out that they can't allow the Fans back into the game. He agrees with the idea.

So they quickly decide that either Julia or Matt have to be eliminated. While Matt is the strongest Fan, Julia is probably the most strategic. Ultimately, they decide strategy trumps strength here, so Julia is chosen.

Hope, Julia, and Matt try to get Malcolm and Reynold on board with a Dawn boot. They point out how much she's struggling with the game. While Reynold just nods along, Malcolm is more tempted.

Andrea is seen talking to Malcolm. Although she'd like to get rid of Dawn, she thinks it would be best to do so after the Fans are gone. Meanwhile, Reynold tells Corinne that he's on board with the plan to get rid of Julia.

At Tribal Council, Michael and Cochran are introduced before Jeff Probst gets down to business. He notes that Andrea dropped out for donuts and asks if this means she felt safe. She said that there are bigger fish to fry.

When Corinne is asked why she dropped out, she says that once the last Fans were out, a Fave would have Immunity so she decided to let Malcolm have it since she thought he would have the biggest target on his back amongst the Fans.

When asked if the Faves moved too soon when they got rid of Cochran, Brenda notes that sooner or later Cochran would make a move on her, so she got rid of him first. Besides, Dawn was the one who led the charge, not Brenda.

Now Jeff pokes Dawn to get her to speak about whether she is on the outside. Dawn says that by getting rid of her closest ally, she now really has no one. She can only trust herself.

Hope says that she, Julia, and Matt can trust each other but they can't trust anyone else.

Probst: It is time to vote. Malcolm, you're up first.

Malcolm votes, followed by Hope who casts a vote for Dawn without any comment. Corinne votes for Julia with no comment. Reynold votes, followed by Julia who says that Dawn is now getting on her nerves. Dawn returns the favor but doesn't comment. Andrea votes, then Matt votes for Dawn with no comments. Brenda votes for Julia, saying that Julia's more strategic than the other Fans.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Dawn and Julia are shown.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so. (Neither Andrea nor Reynold move.) Okay, once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out must leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes.

Dawn and Julia both nod.

Probst: First vote. Dawn. Second vote ... Julia. One vote Dawn, one vote Julia. Third vote ... Dawn. Two votes Dawn. Fourth vote ... Julia. We're tied. Two votes Dawn, two votes Julia. Fifth vote ... Dawn. Sixth vote ... Julia. We're tied agin. Three votes Dawn, three votes Julia. Seventh vote ... Julia. Four votes Julia. Eighth vote ... the eleventh person voted out and the third member of our jury ... Julia. That's six, that's enough. Will you bring me your torch?

Julia gets up, hugs Hope and Matt and heads over with her torch.

Probst: Julia, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out her torch.) It's time for you to go. (Julia heads out.) Well it seems that despite the little detour to vote out Cochran, the Faves are still targeting most of the Fans. The Fans will need a lot of luck to survive now. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Goodnight.

The remaining Survivors grab their torches and head out. In her final words, Julia says that maybe going all out for the Immunity advantage made her a target. But she has no regrets about her journey.

****************************************************************************************

Julia is out and now you have to decide who wins the next Immunity Challenge!

107. "RE: Double Elimination Tribal Council #1"
With Julia being eliminated, Matt and Hope are in deep poop and they know it. When the tribe gets back to camp, Matt and Hope confer briefly, and Matt says, "Well, it looks like everyone for themselves now", and Hope says, "Yeah, but if we hear they're thinking of booting a strong player we better get on board and try to make it happen."

The next morning they get tree mail summoning them to another IC. They show up, Malcolm gives Probst back the IN, and Probst explains the challenge. Malcolm stumbles at an inopportune time and Matt wins the challenge, thus placing bullseyes squarely on Malcolm and Hope.

108. "RE: Double Elimination Tribal Council #1"
We have only one vote, so here are the results:

The remaining Survivors return to Enil Edam. Hope and Matt converse quickly. Hope says, "Well, it looks like for us, it's everyone for themselves." Matt says, "Unless one of us wins Immunity."

"But then, the other person will be the target," Hope points out. "Yeah, but if we hear any talk about getting rid of a strong player amongst the Faves, we've got to get on board with it."

In a confessional which apparently occured the next day, we hear Matt say that he and Hope now have to play the "anybody as long as it isn't us" strategy. Hope just notes that they are desperate.

Brenda, Corinne and Reynold all converse. They want to get rid of Matt but if by some miracle, he wins the Immunity Challenge, they're willing to at least consider getting rid of Malcolm, as he's a bigger threat than the other two, especially Hope.

And now, we move to the Immunity Challenge. Jeff Probst explains the rules. There is a rope wound and curled around a bunch of posts and rails out in the water. The player has to move a little football shaped buoy along the rope until the end.

Then there is a key. The key unlocks a big wooden chest. The chest contains the rungs for the puzzle ladder challenge. Each rung fits in the ladder only one way and in one place. Build the ladder, climb to the top, release your flag and win.

Brenda gets out to an early lead. Andrea, Malcolm and Matt are doing well also. Next are Corinne and Reynold, with Hope in last. Brenda and Matt wind up leading but Matt gets through the rope first, with Malcolm in second.

To get to the key, there are knots. Matt is first to get done with his knot, followed by Brenda. Malcolm is really having a hard time with the knots as Hope shows up at the rope untying.

The ladder must be built from the bottom to the top. Every piece is unique and fits only one way in one specific place. Matt and Brenda are first to work on their ladder, followed by Andrea, Corinne, Reynold, Hope and finally Malcolm.

It comes down to Brenda and Matt and:

Probst: Matt wins Immunity! (Matt jumps into the air. Hope looks scared now. Probst hands over the Immunity necklace to Matt.) Matt, you have Immunity and are safe from the vote. The rest of you aren't so lucky and one of you will be joining Cochran, Julia and Michael on the jury. You have the rest of the day to strategize. Head back to camp and I'll see you at Tribal.

A jubilant Matt leads the way back to Enil Edam.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Matt won Immunity and now Hope and Malcolm are on the chopping block -- Hope because she's a Fan and Malcolm because he's a challenge threat. I want you to decide which one of them joins Michael, Cochran and Julia on the jury. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

109. "RE: Double Elimination Tribal Council #1"
When they get back to camp, Matt and Hope talk it over and agree that it looks bad for Hope, but they will target Malcolm unless somebody else's name comes up. The Faves agree to target Hope, hoping to get her out before she can start a showmance and form a voting pair with anybody, especially Reynold who neither side trusts fully. Hope tries to flirt with Malcolm and thereby save her hide, but it goes nowhere since he is more interested in Andrea. Reynold is keeping his cards close to the vest, but he is wary of taking out Malcolm and putting a bigger target on his own back by eliminating one of the few remaining strong male players. They all arrive at TC, all the usual rituals and spiels and t#rd stirring take place, and no idols are played. They all vote, with Reynold voting with the Fans hoping to take out Malcolm as a rival for both showmances and votes, but he is on the losing side, as the Faves remain united and Hope is voted out 5 votes to 3.

111. "RE: Double Elimination Tribal Council #1"
Well, we have a unanimous vote, so here are the results:

When the Survivors return to camp, the plotting begins. Hope and Matt privately agree that things look bad for her, but they are going to try their hardest to get Reynold and the Faves to turn on Malcolm, as he's the biggest challenge threat.

Unfortunately for them, the Faves all agree to target Hope. Reynold is also willing to target Hope -- especially when Brenda and Corinne tell him that they're considering targeting Malcolm before Matt!

Hope and Matt do their very best to convince Brenda, Corinne, Dawn and Reynold to target Malcolm. None of the Faves bite but Reynold looks tempted to do so. However, he says in confessional that for a spot in the Final 3, he'll be willing to wait.

Resigned to the likelihood that Hope will be leaving, Hope says that if Reynold faces the jury, she'll let him have it for betraying the Fans. Matt tells her to be gentle -- Michael will probably be the one who's really nasty to him.

At Tribal Council Michael, Cochran and Julia arrive. Jeff Probst asks Matt how it feels to win Immunity. He says that he's glad he won Immunity, but he's sad because he knows Hope is on the chopping block.

When asked if any of the Faves think they're on the chopping block, we see Corinne and Malcolm raise their hands. Corinne says that she doesn't think she's a major target but she had been targeted before and thus doesn't feel absolutely safe.

Malcolm says that he's a challenge threat and wouldn't be surprised if the Fans decided to target him as a result of that. Hope confirms that Malcolm is their target but says that she's not sure he's going home.

Andrea is asked when the Faves will start targeting another one of their own. She says that she wouldn't be surprised if it happened soon. Dawn agrees and says that soon it'll be everyone for themselves.

Probst: It is time to vote. Andrea, you're up first.

Andrea votes and we see her vote for Hope but we don't hear her say anything. Brenda, Corinne and Dawn follow but we don't see their votes. Hope votes for Malcolm and says that he's just the biggest challenge threat. Malcolm returns the favor, saying that since Matt is immune, she'll have to do. Matt votes for Malcolm but doesn't speak and we don't see Reynold's vote.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (We see Hope and Malcolm.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so. (Andrea and Reynold stay still.) Okay, once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Hope. Second vote ... Malcolm. One vote Hope, one vote Malcolm. Third vote ... Hope. Two votes Hope. Fourth vote ... Malcolm. We're tied. Two votes Hope, two votes Malcolm. Fifth vote ... Hope. Three votes Hope. Sixth vote ... Hope. That's four votes Hope, two votes Malcolm.

Hope now looks resigned.

Probst: Seventh vote ... the fifth member of our jury, Hope. That's five, that's enough. Will you bring me your torch?

Hope hugs Matt before grabbing her torch and heading over to Probst.

Probst: Hope, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out her torch.) It's time for you to go. (Hope leaves, waving good-bye.) Well, the Faves targeted another Fan but soon you might have to turn on each other. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Good night.

All the members of Enil Edam head back to camp. In her final words, Hope admits that she knew her demise was coming when Matt saved himself. She hopes they send out Malcolm or Reynold before Matt. We see that Andrea, Brenda, Corinne, Dawn and Reynold all voted for Hope.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Hope is gone. Now I'm going to do the Reward Challenge from the Top 10 round of the original game, but one person will have to sit out. I want you to decide who that person is. I also want you to decide who will be paired on what team and which team will win Reward. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

112. "RE: Double Elimination Tribal Council #1"
The next morning the tribe is summoned via tree mail to Challenge Beach where Probst tells them they are playing for reward, in two teams of three, with one person sitting out. Probst explains the details and they draw names out of a hat. The Orange team consists of Malcolm, Andrea and Brenda, the Purple team consists of Matt, Dawn and Corinne, and once again karma bites Reynold in the behind and he sits out. Dawn butchers the challenge massively, giving the Orange team an easy victory and sending the Purple team back to camp to stew in their own juices.

113. "Final 7 Reward Challenge"
Okay, we have just one vote and it's a brand-new day, so here are the results:

It's the after party and Matt sums up his situation as follows: he and Reynold came in as Fans. Reynold decided to turn traitor and now Matt is the only true Fan. He has to win Immunity, otherwise, he's done.

What he doesn't know is that he might be safe even without Immunity! Andrea, Dawn and Malcolm are plotting and they're unsure if they want to get rid of Matt before turning on Reynold or just go straight for Reynold.

Meanwhile, Brenda, Corinne and Reynold are plotting and their plan is clear. They will spare Matt and target Malcolm this round! They know Andrea has the Hidden Immunity Idol and between Dawn, Malcolm and Matt, Malcolm is the biggest threat.

The next day, we see Andrea and Malcolm talking together. They want to take Dawn with them to the finale because they think she'd be easy to beat -- especially since she's constantly breaking down.

Then sure enough, they hear a cry for them to come on over. We see Dawn sitting on the pier sobbing. Andrea, Brenda and Malcolm all come on over to find out why Dawn is crying.

Apparently Dawn has dentures and she lost the lower dentures in the lagoon! While her nutrition won't really suffer, her vanity is suffering big-time! She enlists the help of the three of them and doesn't want them telling anyone else.

As Andrea comforts Dawn, Brenda and Malcolm just grab snorkels and dive. Brenda is able to spot the dentures and gives them to a very grateful Dawn. We hear Malcolm say that he was tired of helping Dawn, so he didn't really try hard.

Magically we are at the challenge grounds. There are two ranks of platforms, tables, ramps and scattered boxes. Jeff Probst calls in the Final 7 and they all march in. He reveals that this challenge will be in two teams of three, with one sitting out.

Run the obstacle course of a zig zag of balance beams and then up a ladder and down a slide. The slide deposits the racer in mud. Run through the mud to a sandbox which is also full of, you guessed it, mud.

Root around in the mud box to find a bag of balls. Haul it out and belly crawl under a barrier and through a pit of rice. Escape that and drop the bag of balls on a platform. Then the next team person can go.

When all three bags of balls are on the table, the team can start shooting balls into a basket target. It takes twelve balls to fill up the target tube and win the game. The winning team will go to a nice resort with a pool and some lunch of chicken, pork, cocktails and margheritas!

They draw orange, purple or black colors. The Orange team consists of Malcolm, Andrea and Brenda, the Purple team consists of Matt, Dawn and Corinne, and once again karma bites Reynold in the behind and he sits out.

Brenda and Dawn are up first. Brenda gets out to an early lead because Dawn keeps falling off the balance beams. Both women don't bother to look for more than one bag before heading back to the next people, who are Andrea and Corinne respectively.

But thanks to Dawn's problems with the balance beams and her having a harder time finding a bag than Brenda, Andrea almost laps Dawn! So Corinne is on the course when it's Malcolm's turn to take the course.

As a result, Malcolm takes his time on the balance beams, thus enabling Corinne to gain a little time on him. But while Matt is tackling the balance beams, Malcolm heads back with the final bag.

Andrea, Brenda and Malcolm are like a well-oiled machine and have six balls in the tube before Matt comes back so that the Orange team can begin trying to score. But Dawn is useless when it comes to scoring and:

Probst: Purple wins Reward! (Andrea, Brenda and Malcolm hug while Corinne and Matt both glare at Dawn, who hangs her head.) Purple, your Reward awaits you. Orange, I have nothing for you. You and Reynold just have to head back to camp.

Andrea, Brenda and Malcolm head off in one direction, celebrating while Corinne, Dawn, Matt and Reynold all head off in the other direction.

****************************************************************************************

Andrea, Brenda and Malcolm have all won the Reward. Next up is Immunity. It's the one from the episode where Phillip was eliminated in the real game (Reynold won that Immunity Challenge). I want you to decide who wins this Immunity Challenge! The person with the most votes will win Immunity. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

Enil Edam is summoned to Challenge Beach, where Probst informs them the next IC is to take place. He takes back the IN and describes the challenge, which is a multi-stage challenge. Dawn once again butchers another challenge, as does Matt. Malcolm, Brenda and Corinne make the final, which is a difficult stage that Malcolm wins in a runaway. He swims over to Probst and picks up his IN, and they all go back to camp for some hot and heavy scheming, which has been made all the more complex by one of the pre-challenge targets having won the IC.

116. "RE: Final 7 Immunity Challenge"
We have a tie, so I'll break it:

We fly through some lovely scenery to see the Purple team walking up the steps of the resort. They seem to have hosed off a little but they sure aren’t dressed to go out for lunch and they probably know it.

They are welcomed warmly and run over to the table, but at least they have the wisdom to sit down before eating. The pool is a swimming type, circular and infinity and inset in it is a smaller circle with seats, possibly for a spa.

Now Andrea has discovered a table with soap and a loofa. She tells us that she hasn’t turned on a shower head in 26 days. And then we see the shower, which they all use. Brenda says in a confessional that she's glad Phillip the Delusional didn't get this far, as he might have just dived in the pool without bothering to shower first!

Later that night, everyone is sleeping around the fire -- except for Matt. He knows that he's number one on the chopping list since he's the last real Fan. He enumerates his options: win Immunity or hope that the others target Malcolm or Reynold.

The sun comes up and we see Andrea sitting in a lounge chair. She looks petulant. Malcolm strolls over. She smiles briefly. Andrea says in a confessional that she thinks she can beat Malcolm and she knows she can beat Dawn.

Meanwhile, Dawn is falling apart -- again. She's getting paranoid that Andrea and Malcolm are going to go after her before getting rid of Matt or Reynold because Malcolm is still mad at her for leading the charge to get rid of Cochran.

Brenda sees Dawn freaking out and goes over to comfort her. She reassures Dawn that she isn't high on anybody's target zone. In a confessional, Brenda says that Dawn's low on the target zone of anyone who's smart enough.

The next day, Dawn has a good night's sleep and she, Andrea and Malcolm are talking over who to target. The targets are clear: either Matt or Reynold. Andrea is leaning towards getting rid of Reynold as he's a bigger threat than Matt.

Meanwhile, we see Brenda, Corinne and Reynold talking. They plan to get Matt on their side to get rid of Malcolm. If Malcolm wins Immunity, they'll try to blindside Andrea as she has a Hidden Immunity Idol.

We see Andrea and Brenda approach Matt at different times. Matt says that now he doesn't have to worry about going home -- he's the swing vote. Part of him wants to go after Reynold but he's not sure if it's smarter to go after Malcolm instead.

And with a flyover along the lagoon, we arrive at the immunity challenge. We have a raft. Then out on the water a little way are five long narrow raft things that appear to be platforms on the ends connected by narrow walkways.

The challenge is as follows: the players run the length of the raft, dive into the water, pull themselves along under the raft to the far end. They the climb back on the raft, grab a ring and run back to put the ring on a post. Then they repeat.

The goal is to get two rings on the post at the starting end. The first four to finish will move on to the final part. Jeff Probst warns up front that this race will be exhausting. Nobody looks happy.

Andrea, Brenda, Corinne, Malcolm and Reynold all are in a close race. Dawn and Matt are way behind. In the end, Malcolm and Reynold are the first ones to move on. They are followed by Brenda and then Corinne barely beats Andrea!

In the final round, there are five rings, not just two! Reynold and Malcolm are in the front for most of the round, with Corinne right behind and Brenda in last. By the fourth round, Reynold and Malcolm are tiring while Corinne is still going strong.

Corinne passes Malcolm and then in the final stretch:

Probst: Corinne wins Immunity! (Corinne celebrates as Malcolm looks angry. When all of them are on the raft, Probst hands Corinne the Immunity necklace.) Corinne, you have Immunity and are safe from the vote. The rest of you aren't so lucky and one of you will be joining the jury tonight. You have all day to find out who it is. Head on back and I'll see you at Tribal.

The Final 7 head back. Brenda, Corinne and Reynold are happy, while Malcolm's not so happy. Matt says in a confessional, "Let the strategizing begin!"

****************************************************************************************

Okay, I put Corinne and Malcolm through the Random List Generator five times, and Corinne came up three out of five, so she won. Now you must decide who will join Michael, Cochran, Julia and Hope on the jury. Corinne has the necklace, while both Andrea and Reynold have the Hidden Immunity Idol. Brenda, Dawn, Malcolm and Matt are all in danger (especially if either Andrea or Reynold play the HII).

I want you to decide two things. First, decide whether Andrea or Reynold plays the HII at Tribal Council (most likely, Reynold). Second, decide which of the remaining four (Brenda, Dawn, Malcolm or Matt) will be going to the jury. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

117. "RE: Final 7 Immunity Challenge"
The scheming gets going full bore as they get back to camp after the IC. There is talk of targeting Reynold, even though everybody knows he has a HII, in an effort to blindside him or smoke out his idol. Matt and Malcolm get talk due to their physical strength, Andrea gets some talk due to her flirting with both Reynold and Malcolm, and even Dawn gets a little talk since her constant emotional breakdowns are driving everybody nuts. Only Brenda gets relatively little talk. All the players actively take part in hours worth of plotting in various pairs and small groups, and when they get to TC nobody is too sure who anybody else is really after.

Probst stirs the t#rds like he's working on some culinary masterpiece, and after two hours and change of this, he says, "Only one thing I'm sure of. Somebody here, maybe several somebodies, will be surprised by what happens here tonight. It is time to vote". They vote, Probst does the spiels, and Reynold plays his HII. Andrea does not play hers. Brenda is seen on TV voting for Dawn, Malcolm is seen voting for Reynold, Matt is seen voting for Andrea, and no other votes are shown. When Probst announces the votes, five of them are votes for Reynold, which do not count, and Andrea and Dawn have one each. When they revote, it is a four-one vote to boot Dawn, and Brenda is shown voting for Dawn and saying "Dawn, there are six more days out here, and I cannot spend one more day in the company of such an emotional wreck." Dawn is seen in her final words being extremely pi$$ed off, while the atmosphere back at Enil Edam is shown as much lighter and happier in the previews.

118. "RE: Final 7 Tribal Council"
All right. Here are the results:

Once the gang heads back to camp, there is plenty of plotting. Matt heads over to the Faves while Reynold is busy getting firewood and tells them that he wants the Fans to have a victory over Reynold.

Brenda then reveals that he got the second Hidden Immunity Idol (she doesn't tell them Andrea has the other one). But she's willing to have Reynold's HII smoked out and tells Matt that they won't be going after him -- yet.

Talk then turns to who the other target should be, with the Faves splitting up. Brenda, Corinne and Reynold (who's aware of the plot against him) decide to target Dawn since she's gotten on their last nerve.

Meanwhile, Matt has decided to go after Andrea and the others have decided to go after Reynold. In a confessional, he says that he's just throwing his vote away as he doesn't think Andrea's a target -- yet.

At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst brings out Michael, Cochran, Julia and Hope. He then asks Corinne how it feels to win Immunity. She says that it was awesome! She just tried to stay within striking distance so that when the guys tired, she could pass them.

Matt asks if he feels safe. He says that he's been told that he's safe, but for all he knows, they might be blindsiding him! On the jury, we see Hope, Julia and Michael all nodding in agreement.

When asked who feels in danger, we see all but Andrea raise their hands. When asked why she doesn't feel she's in danger, she says that she's got a Hidden Immunity Idol to protect herself and she can use it soon.

Brenda says that she doesn't think she's really a target but won't be 100% sure until the votes are cast. Malcolm says that he's a physical threat, Reynold says that he's both a threat and Matt wants him gone, and Dawn says she's just nervous.

Probst: Well, one of you will be the target. It is time to vote. Matt, you're up first.

Matt votes for Andrea, saying that it's just a message vote. Andrea is up next and she votes for Reynold, but we don't hear her speak. Brenda votes for Dawn and she says that she's reached her patience limit with Dawn. Corinne votes for Dawn but she has no comment. Dawn votes for Reynold but doesn't comment either. Malcolm votes for Reynold, saying that he's just smoking out the Hidden Immunity Idol. Reynold votes for Dawn but doesn't comment.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Andrea, Dawn and Reynold are all shown.) If anyone has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so.

Reynold immediately presents his Hidden Immunity Idol.

Probst: The rules say that if you have a Hidden Immunity Idol, all votes against you will not be counted. This is a Hidden Immunity Idol. All votes against Reynold will not be counted. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Reynold. Does not count. Second vote ... Reynold. Does not count. Third vote ... Reynold. Does not count. Fourth vote ... Andrea. One vote Andrea. Fifth vote ... Dawn. One vote Andrea, one vote Dawn.

Andrea now looks nervous but Dawn just looks resigned.

Probst: Sixth vote ... Dawn. (Dawn nods sadly.) Seventh vote ... the fifth member of our jury ... Dawn. Will you bring me your torch?

Andrea sighs in relief as Dawn gets up, grabs her torch and heads over to Probst.

Probst: Dawn, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Dawn's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Dawn leaves silently.) Well, one of you got a minor scare and one was saved by a Hidden Immunity Idol but it was Dawn who had good reason to fear for her safety. You are all nearing the end game and none of you might be safe! Remember that. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Good night.

The Final 6 head back. In her final words, Dawn admits that she's not surprised she was sent packing. Her emotions got the best of her. She wishes the others well.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Dawn got the boot. Next up is the Loved Ones Challenge. Brenda is the only one who got this far in the original game -- Matt didn't make the merge, Corinne didn't make the jury and the others didn't get this far. You must decide who the loved ones are that will be coming for Andrea, Corinne, Malcolm, Matt and Reynold, then you must decide who wins Reward. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

Brenda's loved one is her dad Raymond.
Andrea's loved one is her dad Royal.
Malcolm's loved one is his brother Miles.
Matt's loved one is his business partner Nate.
Reynold's loved one is his girlfriend Olivia.
Corinne's loved one is her gay best friend Geoff.

Matt explains his wife couldn't make it because the kids are too young for both of them to be gone for so long, though in confessional he secretly admits he's hoping he and Nate can really take this challenge.

The RC is close all the way through with Brenda/Raymond, Malcolm/Miles and Corinne/Geoff keeping it neck and neck. Matt/Nate struggle but are right on their heals, Andrea/Royal and Reynold/Olivia fall far behind. Matt/Nate make a surge to pass up Malcolm/Miles, but then Corinne/Geoff win reward just a few seconds ahead of Brenda/Raymond whose last toss also scores.

You take it from there.

120. "RE: Final 7 Tribal Council"
dabo's loved ones lineup and speech by Matt sound good to me, so I'll leave those as is and start from there.

The challenge is close throughout, with Malcolm/Miles leading throughout but missing just enough to let Andrea/Royal and Brenda/Raymond keep it close throughout as the other teams fall behind one by one. Malcolm closes out the victory with his final toss barely ahead of Raymond, whose own toss is released just as Malcolm's lands on the peg for the win. Probst calls Malcolm and Miles over to accept the reward, and when asked to choose another team to go with them Malcolm chooses Reynold and Olivia. Then JiffyProbe asks Malcolm to choose to either keep the reward or give it to the other four teams, and Malcolm says, "You guys in charge of this show always pull this bull$hit. I'm gonna pi$$ somebody off no matter what I do," and from the losers' group Corinne says, "Jeff, that's just wrong to do this to people after this many days out here. You oughta be ashamed of yourself." She continues for a couple minutes on an ugly tirade which makes the show but is half bleeped out, then shuts up and Malcolm says, "I can't win no matter what I do, and we have three more immunity challenges coming up and I need to win them or I'm getting the boot anyway no matter what I do here. We're keeping the reward." Malcolm, Miles, Reynold and Olivia are taken to a party barge anchored fifty yards offshore from camp, and they enjoy the reward in a restrained manner and talk a little game while the losers talk game among themselves and cook a meal of rice and beans on the shore.

Okay, we have a tie, so I'll run the two names through the Random List Generator. Best two out of three wins:

There's no after party this time. Instead, it's Day 35. Matt crawls out of the shelter. Everyone moves slowly as Reynold feeds the fire. He notes that he's glad he used the Hidden Immunity Idol.

Brenda and Matt talk about Matt's position as a sitting duck. He's sure that he'll be the one going out next. Brenda says, "You could always win Immunity. Who will go next in that situation?"

Matt says, "Malcolm or Reynold. Maybe even you. Nobody's really paying a whole lot of attention to you, but I think you've been pulling the strings of Corinne and Reynold. And Andrea's pulling Malcolm's strings, but she has the Hidden Immunity Idol."

Brenda does a confessional. She says that she's got Corinne and Reynold as her goats to go to the Final 3, but she's got to make sure she gets there first. And that means getting rid of Malcolm first, then Andrea and finally Matt.

Corinne reveals in a confessional that she was the one who led the charge to get rid of Dawn at the previous Tribal Council. She had enough of Dawn's constant whining and paranoia. She's glad Dawn is gone now.

Andrea and Malcolm are talking and they plan on going after Reynold before Matt. Or at least, that's what Malcolm wants. Andrea is wondering if they should go after Brenda instead of Reynold, however.

Malcolm says, "We'll target Brenda after Reynold. Remember, Reynold's not a Fave anymore than Matt is. And everyone will celebrate when we get rid of him, especially Matt and the Fans on the jury."

Andrea notes that at least they can get Matt on board with a plan to get rid of Reynold, so she's all for it. She thinks she can sway Brenda into helping them get rid of Reynold but has no plans to tell Corinne, since Reynold spends a lot of time with Corinne.

Reynold heads out to get Tree Mail. When they all see the Sprint logo, they all figure it out quickly enough. Reynold follows the instructions and presses the right buttons and “presto” there is Brenda’s dad, Raymond. He tells her how many hours they traveled to get here.

Next up is Andrea's dad Royal. He's happy that she's gotten this far and hopes to see her soon. Andrea's crying, of course.

Malcolm's loved one is his brother Miles. He's thrilled to have a second chance to see Malcolm. Much to everyone's surprise, Matt's loved one is his business partner Nate. He explains that his kids were too young for his wife to leave them behind.

Reynold's loved one is his girlfriend Olivia. She says that she misses him. Finally, Corinne's loved one is her gay best friend Geoff. He tells her that he hopes she's having a good time.

The players mug for the Sprint device. We fly over the trees to “Come on In Guys”. It’s Jeff Probst at the big sand pit. Everyone marches in. None are looking at Jeff. They are all looking around. They know what is next.

After the required promotional words from Jeff about the Sprint Evo phone, the loved ones start jogging in. The hugs and tears between Brenda and her dad, Raymond, were more than Jeff could handle. He says after twenty six seasons, this is the first time he has cried at a reunion. Aww.

Andrea's father, Malcolm's brother, Matt's business partner, Reynold's girlfriend and Geoff enter. There's plenty of hugs, and in most cases tears.

Out on the sand pit there are posts with rails screwed onto the tops. Makes them look like a “T”. The player and the loved one unscrew the rail from the post by walking it round and round. There are three to unscrew.

Then the three rails get set as crossbars on a pair of uprights. When that's done, bolos must be tossed and hooked onto the crossbars. First pair to get three bolos hooked onto the crossbars of their construction, wins Reward.

The reward is back at camp. Production has set up a floating backyard barbeque. The float is just off shore. Steak, burgers, beer, apple pie. The list went on. Naturally, all the Survivors are drooling at the thought of food.

Malcolm and Miles are the first to get their rail off. They are followed by Corinne and Geoff and Brenda and Raymond. Andrea and Royal and Reynold and Olivia are right on the tail of Brenda and Raymond, while Matt and Nate are way behind!

The first five pairs get their rails unscrewed but now they see that the bolos are actually hanging on a post and there is a rope tied to hold them there. Knots. Lots of knots. There are a number of groans.

Corinne and Geoff are great at untying knots and are the first ones done. They are soon followed by Brenda and Raymond and Andrea and Royal. Malcolm and Miles are having a hard time with the knots but they finish before Reynold and Olivia.

As Matt and Nate are working on the knots, the tossing begins. Corinne is first done, followed by Brenda. Royal is having a hard time, so Malcolm and Miles pass him and Andrea. Reynold and Olivia are tossing as Matt and Nate finally begin tossing.

It's a show-down between Brenda, Corinne and Malcolm. Finally:

Probst: Corinne and Geoff win Reward! (Corinne and Geoff celebrate.) Now I want you to choose one other Survivor and their loved one to come with them. You must decide which one will go with you.

Corinne: I'm going to choose one of the people who was right behind me. I choose ... Malcolm to come with me.

Malcolm and Miles are naturally delighted. Then Probst reveals a second twist. Either Corinne and Malcolm can go to the Reward or Corinne can give up her Reward and let the others have the Reward.

Corinne: I could either get four jury votes and thus be voted out or just go on the Reward, face the jury and lose my chances of winning. I'd rather face the jury, so I'm taking the Reward!

Probst tells the others that he has nothing for them and sends them all back to camp -- after allowing Andrea, Brenda, Matt and Reynold to say good-bye to their loved ones.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Corinne's name came up twice so she won the Reward but I had her choose to bring Malcolm with her -- and keep the Reward. Now I want you to decide who wins Immunity. The person who gets the most votes wins the Final 6 Immunity Challenge. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

122. "RE: Loved Ones Reward Challenge"
Andrea, Brenda, Matt and Reynold are pi$$ed as they watch Corinne and Malcolm and their loved ones enjoy the reward on the party barge anchored just offshore of the Enil Edam camp, but Brenda has the most realistic take on it, saying, "What Corinne is afraid of is that anybody who thinks they have a chance to make the final 3 will fear she will get the votes of all the people who go on reward, so they will vote to eliminate her before she has a chance to sell that good deed to the jury. Now she probably thinks she'll lose all 4 of our votes and have little chance to win, so nobody will go after her". Andrea reminds her that even if that is so, Corinne might still get all the other 4 votes and have a chance in whatever the finals tiebreaker is, so she's still a legitimate target for elimination if the rest so choose. "It's still a matter of where you think all the votes will fall. And she could always talk one of us into voting for her."

Plotting continues all day and night even after the reward winners return to camp, and into the next morning before the next IC takes place. Nobody notices that Corinne looks a little ill the next morning before the challenge, and nobody thinks anything of it when she does badly in the challenge, which Brenda wins. But ill she is.

123. "RE: Loved Ones Reward Challenge"
Okay, with one vote, here are the results:

The fancy boat that carries Jeff Probst has taken the two pairs out to the raft, with a white picket fence and AstroTurf. The sign over the entrance gate reads “Home Sweet Home”. Corinne, Malcolm and their loved ones are thrilled.

We’re back to hugs and tears and more hugs and more tears. Corinne tells Geoff that she's glad she won the Reward and got to spend time with him. Malcolm and Miles are delighted to be spending time together.

Corinne tells Geoff that she chose Malcolm because she thought Brenda could keep an eye on things and stop any plotting against her. But other than that bit, she's mainly focused on having a good time.

Back onshore, the others are watching and are turning varying shades of green with envy. Then Andrea and Matt seem to be turning red with fury that Corinne was so selfish as to not share!

Reynold's also unhappy, but more because he thought Corinne would pick him! However, he understands her reasons for choosing either Brenda or Malcolm ahead of him. He also wishes he could spend more time with Olivia.

Brenda's also disappointed, but she has the most realistic take on things. She realizes that Corinne thought that if she gave up reward, those who thought they had a chance at the Final 3 might be afraid that she'd win the votes of those who were on Reward! By keeping Reward, she's got enough people mad at her to not think of getting rid of her!

When she tells Andrea this, Andrea says, "It could backfire. We'd be mad enough to get rid of her! Or she might make it there and still win or at least get 4 votes and win the tiebreaker, whatever that is!"

Corinne and Malcolm return to shore. Corinne tells Brenda that she chose Malcolm so that Brenda could make sure that there would be no plotting against her to get rid of her amongst the other four, just in case.

The next moring, Corinne isn't feeling too well. She thinks she ate a bit too much food. She's glad to have a day to rest between the Reward and Immunity Challenges, because she thinks she might need it.

And with that, we’re at the immunity challenge. We’re out on the water. There is an L-shaped dock and what looks like a ship’s wheel attached to a rope.

The players stand on the edge of the dock. They are facing outward. Behind their backs they will hang onto a handle that looks like the grip used for waterskiing. It's clearly a balance/endurance challenge.

Initially they are on an angle over the water. Every so often Probst will give the ship’s wheel a turn and the length of the players’ rope will be extended. That will lean them out closer to horizontal.

They start out vertical, but Jeff starts the slant immediately. At the first stop, they each appear to be leaning into a stiff wind. Reynold worries that if he loses, he'll go home. Malcolm and Matt are also worried about the same thing.

And Matt is the first one out of the challenge, after 15 minutes! At 25 minutes, we see Malcolm, who is visibly struggling, slip and fall off. He is soon followed by Reynold at 30 minutes.

After an hour, Andrea falls off. She tells us she has no real need to win Immunity, so she's going to bail. Corinne says that she'll let Brenda win Immunity if Brenda protects Corinne from the vote. Brenda says, "Deal," so Corinne jumps off:

Probst: Brenda wins Immunity! (Brenda celebrates and the two hug before heading to shore, where Probst gives Brenda the Immunity necklace.) Brenda, you won Immunity and are safe from the vote. The rest of you are not safe and one of you will be joining Michael, Cochran, Julia, Hope and Dawn on the jury. You have the rest of the day to figure out who will be on the jury and I'll see you at Tribal.

An exultant Brenda leads the others back to Enil Edam, with Corinne saying that she hopes that Brenda can keep her word. She's sure Brenda will try, however.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Brenda won Immunity and is safe from the vote. Andrea has the last Hidden Immunity Idol, so she's safe, but she can still play it. The other four, however, are vulnerable, although thanks to Brenda, Corinne's a bit less vulnerable than Malcolm, Matt and Reynold. I want you to decide which one of those three (hopefully Malcolm or Matt) will be going to the jury. The one with the most votes will be the sixth juror. I'll be taking votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

124. "RE: Loved Ones Reward Challenge"
Corrine and Malcolm had a very nice time on reward, very nice indeed. So nice that they became quite chummy. They thought that the playing field should be a little more level and that the Idol that Andrea has needs to be played, she's entirely too comfortable with that little bauble in her pocket and there are too few survivors left not to be worried about an ill timed Idol bounce.

Malcolm & Corrine plant seeds of paranoia with Andrea and she plays the Idol at TC without getting any votes. Almost as bad as going home with it in your pocket.

The next jury member: Reynold


Thanks sweetie! You brite up my world

125. "RE: Loved Ones Reward Challenge"
The scheming gets under way as soon as they get back from the IC. As Corinne had hoped, nobody targets her. Reynold and Malcolm are the prime targets, but Andrea thinks she is a target because Malcolm, Corinne and Brenda all plant seeds of paranoia.

Andrea shows up at TC planning to call Corinne out for plotting against her, but she notices as they arrive that Corinne looks very sick, so she says nothing, gambling that Corinne will become the victim of a medevac and she won't need to get blood on her hands to get her out. TC proceeds as normal, Andrea plays her idol, and Reynold is voted out 5-1, with Malcolm getting Reynold's vote.

126. "Final 6 Tribal Council"
LAST EDITED ON 06-26-13 AT 05:00 PM (EST)

Okay, we have a majority vote so I'll be doing the results early:

The group returns to Enil Edam and Corinne is doing pretty well. Malcolm, however, isn't doing so well. He initially thought that like Corinne, he just ate a little too much. However, he felt so badly during the challenge that he was the second one out!

Reynold is worried. With Malcolm not feeling so well, he's the obvious strongest challenge threat and he's sure Matt is going to lead the charge to get rid of him. He's planning to try to get Matt out.

Meanwhile, we see Andrea, Brenda, Corinne and Matt talking. Matt begs the Faves to get rid of Reynold. After all, Reynold is a strong enough challenge threat and could be a jury threat, depending on who he's facing if he makes the final jury.

Later, Brenda and Corinne are talking. They were originally planning on getting rid of Malcolm, but he's so sick that he might be a med-evac and save them the trouble. And it's clear to them that Andrea and Malcolm are ready to get rid of Reynold as well.

But they want to flush out Andrea's Hidden Immunity Idol, so they head over to talk things with Matt. They want him to join them in a plan to flush out Andrea's HII -- three votes for Andrea and let Andrea and Malcolm get rid of Reynold.

In a confessional, Matt says this might be a good idea. After all, with Andrea's HII out of the picture, the next time there's an Immunity Challenge, they could get rid of her and then he might actually get to the Finals!

Reynold thinks that he's safe. Matt is the last Fan left standing, so it's time to get rid of him. He thinks the other Faves will vote with him to get rid of Matt and then Andrea, and then Malcolm and he'll get to the finals!

At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst asks how it felt to greet their loved ones. Andrea said that she wishes she could have spent more time with her dad, but at least she got to see him at the Reward Challenge.

When asked how he felt, Malcolm said that he was glad to spend time with Miles not only before the Reward Challenge but during it as well. However, he thinks he paid for it because he now feels awful!

When asked why she chose to take the Reward for herself, Corinne explained that she was afraid that if she gave her Reward to others, those who wanted to go to the Finale would think she'd get enough votes to win. She wants to face the jury, not be on it.

When asked if she thinks she has a chance of facing the jury, Brenda says that she's got a 1-in-5 shot, but she thinks Andrea has a great chance because she has a HII and she could win the final Immunity Challenge.

Matt thinks he's got little shot of getting to the Finals but there's always a chance. Reynold thinks he's going to face the jury for certain and maybe he can even get some votes! The look on Michael's face says, "Not from me!"

Probst: It is now time to vote. Malcolm, you're up first.

Malcolm votes and shows his vote for Reynold, but makes no comment. Andrea votes for Reynold, saying that it's time to send a threat to the jury. Brenda votes for Andrea, saying that she's just flushing out the Hidden Immunity Idol. Corinne and Matt vote for Andrea but they don't explain themselves. Reynold votes for Matt, saying that it's time for the last Fan to head to the jury.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Andrea, Matt and Reynold are shown.) If anybody has the Hidden Immunity Idol and you want to play it, now would be the time to do so.

Andrea stands up and presents her Hidden Immunity Idol.

Probst: The rules state that if someone found a Hidden Immunity Idol and plays it, all votes against that person won't count. This is a Hidden Immunity Idol. All votes against Andrea won't count. I'll read the votes. First vote ... Andrea. Does not count. Second vote ... Andrea. Does not count. Third vote ... Andrea. Does not count. Fourth vote ... Matt. One vote Matt. Fifth vote ... Reynold. One vote Matt, one vote Reynold, one vote left. The sixth member of our jury ... Reynold. Will you bring me your torch?

A shocked Reynold gets up and grabs his torch as Michael is seen celebrating on the jury. Reynold heads over to Probst.

Probst: Reynold, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Reynold's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Reynold exits silently.) There are no more Hidden Immunity Idols. Now, you have to earn your way into the finale. Grab your torches. Good night.

The Final 5 head back to camp. In his final words, Reynold says that he was hoping that Brenda and Corinne would save him. But instead, they allowed him to go. He hopes they can explain their actions.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Reynold is on the jury. Now, at this point in the regular game, Erik had to be taken out of the game for a med-evac. I want you to decide if that should happen here or if there should be a regular Immunity Challenge. If there's a regular IC, I want you to decide who wins. If there's a med-evac, I want you to decide who goes to the jury. I'll take votes until tomorrow, so please vote!

127. "RE: Final 6 Tribal Council"
As they depart the TC location, the players hear a thump behind them. They turn to find Malcolm passed out on the ground and Probst, who had heard the thump, rushing out of the TC location. Malcolm comes to and gets on his hands and knees, then pukes all over the place. The medical team, who is always handy at any challenge or TC, is on the scene within seconds. They do a thorough examination and ask a lot of questions, and the docs say they think Malcolm has food poisoning and is severely dehydrated. They pull him out of the game and take him to a nearby hospital. The next morning the tribe goes to the challenge location where Probst informs them Malcolm indeed had a bad case of food poisoning and that his dehydration was probably aggravated by playing two Survivor games back to back with only a two week break in between. Probst says he is expected to be well enough to serve on the jury after a day's medical treatment and rest, but that he will probably still feel pretty poorly for several days to come. He then explains that the challenge which had been intended to be an IC has been converted to a RC, with the reward being an advantage in the final IC the next day. He explains the details and they run the challenge, which Andrea wins to win the advantage in the next day's IC.

Turns out that everyone on that reward got a little ill. Malcolm who was munching the shrimp down at an alarming rate ate most of them and paid the price.

As for the challenge: Andrea wins whatever the challenge is for.


I should be watched....closely.

129. "A Med-evac and the Final Reward Challenge"
LAST EDITED ON 06-26-13 AT 05:01 PM (EST)

We have a unanimous vote, so here are the results:

We begin with a recap of the results so far. We see Francesca get rid of Phillip the Delusional and Brandon the Insane manage to regain his dignity by being voted out without an intervention.

We see Shamar get a scratched cornea and Erik the Idiot totally lose it. We then see Malcolm use a Hidden Immunity Idol to get rid of Laura and Reynold take out Sherri through his own HII. We see the decimation of the Fans begin, interrupted only twice -- to get rid of jury threat Cochran and sanity threat Dawn.

And last time, we saw everyone get to spend time with their loved ones before getting rid of challenge threat Reynold.

We're now left with five people: Andrea, endurance threat; Brenda, the strategizer; Corinne, a thorn in the sides of a lot of people but a potential goat as a result; Malcolm, who's feeling poorly and Matt, the last Fan left standing.

Shortly after leaving Tribal Council, everyone hears a thump. It's Malcolm, who had collapsed to the ground and is now vomiting! Jeff Probst hears this and leaves the set to attend to him.

Medic is there, of course, and they think he's got a bad case of food poisoning and severe dehydration. Malcolm has to be pulled from the game. The others get to say good-bye to him before he is taken out on a stretcher.

The others return to camp in a state of shock and concern. Corinne thinks he ate one too many bad steak or hamburgers. She notes that she thinks she might have had a mild case of it herself but she recovered in time to compete and acquit herself well.

Andrea is disappointed that Malcolm is gone from the game as she was planning on taking him and Corinne (once Dawn was gone) to face the jury. Now she has to take Brenda with her, as there are Fans on the jury.

Brenda hopes that Malcolm will be okay in time to be part of the jury. Matt is relieved that there's one less challenge threat in the game. He now hopes that Andrea and Brenda turn on each other, allowing him to slip into the Final 3.

The next day (day 37), Andrea brings in tree mail. It’s a little ditty about digging deep to get a competitive edge. Most of them think it's for Reward, but Brenda notes that it might be for an advantage in the final Immunity Challenge!

And with a “come on in, guys” we find ourselves in the big sandy rectangle in the marsh. Probst explains the challenge. There is a balance board which is controlled by a handle on a rope threaded through an overhead pulley.

The player holds the board steady with one hand while building a house of cards (more like wooden tablets) with the other. The board has a specific platform on which the players must build their house of cards.

One arm has to keep things steady while the other has to control a precarious build. The last person left standing wins a Reward, which as Brenda figured is an advantage for the final Immunity Challenge.

The goal on this house of cards is height. There is a red line quite a way up the apparatus. A couple of feet, I’m guessing. The tower must reach that line. Matt mutters something like, "I'm screwed."

We also learn what happened to Malcolm. He had a severe case of food poisoning and dehydration, aggravated by having to play two games back-to-back. He'll be okay in time to be part of the jury, but he's still feeling a bit poorly.

And with that, they're off! Andrea and Brenda are trying to figure out the best way to create their towers without having them crash. Corinne and Matt just go as fast as they can, hoping to get to the top before their houses come crashing down.

Probst tells Andrea and Brenda not to panic, noting that someone could fall and sure enough, Matt's house of cards comes crashing down! Corinne is in the lead, with both Andrea and Brenda working methodically and Matt beginning again.

Then Corinne's house comes crashing down, just as Matt passes Andrea and Brenda! But Matt's house crashes down a second time! Andrea and Brenda are in the lead now with Corinne working more slowly and Matt trying a third time.

Andrea and Brenda continue working and their towers are near the top. Then Matt's house comes crashing down a third time! Corinne is still in third as Andrea and Brenda both reach the red line. But then one house comes crashing down:

Probst: Andrea wins Reward! (Andrea cheers as Brenda tells her "Good job." Andrea repays the compliment before receiving her scroll.) Andrea, you have an advantage for the final Immunity Challenge. The rest of you, I have nothing. Head back to camp and I'll see you tomorrow for your final Immunity Challenge!

They all head out, with a jubilant Andrea leading and a despondent Matt trailing.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Andrea won the advantage for the Final Immunity Challenge and Malcolm got a bad case of food poisoning and had to be taken out of the game. Now I want you to decide whether Andrea wins the Final Immunity Challenge or someone else does. The person with the most votes will be part of the Final 3. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

On day 38 the remaining players arrive for the final IC. Probst retrieves the IN and explains the challenge, then asks Andrea to read the scroll describing her advantage. She does so, the players take their places, and they begin. Matt does badly right off the get-go and is out of it from the start. All three women do well, and Andrea needs her advantage to win. She cashes in that advantage to take a close win over Corinne, with Brenda right behind them.

132. "The Final Immunity Challenge"
Did the randomizer again, with best two out of three winning, so here are the results:

Back at camp, Matt is looking depressed. He really wanted that Immunity advantage because he was sure the Faves would rather take each other rather than a Fan who had stayed true to his own side.

Sure enough, we see Andrea, Brenda and Corinne talking. They can't afford to let Matt go with them to the Finals! Sure, Matt had done next to nothing but there are four Fans on the jury and at least three would vote for him!

Matt tries to do something to save himself. He talks to Brenda and Corinne about the possibility of getting rid of Andrea. He thinks she might be a jury threat. Corinne bluntly notes that so is Matt.

Brenda says in a confessional that Corinne's unpopular, so she won't get any votes. What Brenda has to do is to establish herself as the better player so that she can beat Andrea. She thinks she can do that.

The next day, Andrea and Matt come in with tree mail! Something about wait for some men in a boat, nostalgia and the last vote. It's the walk of rememberance -- only on water, not on land.

The boat is a lovely turquoise outrigger with an outboard motor. It takes them to a cove where they find the torch of Phillip the Delusional. He insists that being the first one out was "part of the plan".

Next up is the torch of Brandon the Crazy. He's glad he's gone. He thinks he would have gone insane had he lasted much longer. Then we see Allie's torch. She says that she wishes she could have gone farther.

Up next is Shamar's torch. He's unhappy about having to go out via a med-evac. When we reach Francesca's torch, Brenda notes that she hoped to take Francesca to the finals. Francesca says that she should have gone after Dawn.

Then we get to Erik the Idiot's torch. Andrea hopes he's doing okay. Erik apologizes for losing his cool. He says that he must have gotten a parasite that made him hungry and therefore stir-crazy.

We then move on to Laura's torch. Andrea smiles when she sees it. Laura says that she was outplayed. When we move on to Sherri's torch, we hear her say that perhaps she should have made Reynold feel more comfortable.

Moving on to Eddie's torch, he says that he came here for showmances. He should have been here to play the game. When we reach Michael's torch, he just basically rants about Reynold being a traitor.

We then move on to Cochran. He says that he made two big mistakes and he paid for them. He's not holding any grudges. Julia says that she's glad she managed to make the jury, at least.

We then move on to Hope's torch. She says that she had a good time while it lasted. Then we see Dawn's torch. She thinks that maybe it was a blessing that she left when she did, as she was going crazy.

We then see Reynold's torch. He says that Malcolm's sickness gave Matt the chance to get others to get rid of him. Finally, we see Malcolm's torch. He's glad he got far for a second time but he wishes he hadn't left the way that he did.

Corinne has gathered all the name tags from the torches. They are placed on a large tiki type statue made of reeds. The Final 4 light it and hug as it burns. Matt says that this is a must-win situation for him.

We return to the challenge ground. The big scaffolding apparatus is here. There are four big slides coming out of it at about the third floor level. Some distance away are tables with what seem to be stacks of rocks with a colorful flag sticking out of the top.

Jeff Probst explains the challenge. They have to run up stairs to the third floor level. Then, they must find a bag full of puzzle pieces. They must grab it, untie it from the scaffold and slide down the WATER slide.

They'll have to leave the bag there and go back two more times. Once all three bags are on the little table, they have to dump the bags, which contain puzzle pieces. The pile of rocks is a base for a vertical puzzle shaped like fire.

Before they begin, Andrea reads her advantage letter. She does not have to untie those darned knots. When she gets to the top of the scaffold, her bags will be waiting. She can just grab and go. Matt openly groans at it.

It's a major advantage, because Andrea is up and down with her first bag before either Brenda or Matt reach the top but after Corinne reaches it. Andrea grabs all three bags as Corinne and Brenda grab two.

Matt is hopeless with the knots. Unfortunately, Andrea's having a brain cramp with the puzzle pieces, which enables Brenda and Corinne to catch up to her. Soon, it's between Andrea and Corinne for the win, with Brenda just behind:

Probst: Corinne wins Immunity! (Corinne hugs as Andrea sighs. Corinne receives the Immunity necklace from Probst.) Corinne, you won Immunity and are a part of the Final 3 who will be competing for the 1 million dollar prize. Two others will join you while the fourth will become the final member of the jury. You have the rest of the day to decide who will be on the jury. Head on back, and I'll see you at Tribal.

A triumphant Corinne leads the Final Four back to Enil Edam. A despondent Matt is the last one to head on back.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Corinne will be part of the Final 3. Now I want you to decide who will be the final member of the jury. The person with the most votes will head to the jury. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

133. "RE: The Final Immunity Challenge"
The politicking after they get back to camp is a pretty simple matter. Matt tries like hell to convince each woman that Andrea is a jury threat, and they all tell him that there are three fans already on the jury who are nearly guaranteed votes for him, which means he only has to get 1 or 2 Faves to flip to win, and Brenda and Corinne both fear Faves flipping for good reasons, and Andrea is uneasy with the possibility as well, so none of them will vote for him. The women talk among themselves and agree to vote out Matt.

They all get to TC and this gets hashed out for an hour or so. The vote is taken and the women stick to their agreement. Matt gives his vote to Corinne, and is voted out 3-1. In his final words Matt says, "I knew that was gonna happen. I'm sure I'd have got Hope and Julia's votes, and probably Reynold's as well since these women all helped boot him after he sided with them for most of the game. They had to boot me to have any kind of chance."

134. "RE: The Final Immunity Challenge"
LAST EDITED ON 06-28-13 AT 00:38 AM (EST)

After returning to camp, Matt does his best to convince Brenda and the Corinne that Andrea has to go. She's a guy magnet, the guys on the jury all love her, if she gets to FTC she has the jury in the palm of her hands. Corinne agrees but Brenda isn't sure, Matt is well liked and not only that last standing fan but the last standing man.

Andrea doesn't think she is in much danger, but knows she has to sell Branda and Corinne on booting the obvious. They were nice enough to keep Matt around this long because he is a nice guy, loved having him around but it is just his turn to go. Confident that she is gold she says to Brenda and Corinne that Matt has to go, he has too many fans on the jury and is just too likeable. She even goes to him and tells him she's sorry but he should be ready to go to the jury now, that's just the game.

She does this in earshot of Brenda and Corinne. Corinne in confessional gets snarky about how Andrea just wraps the guys around her little finger and toys with them and always gets away with it. Brenda in confessional says she wanted to pull a Dawn and emotionally freak out, she's just totally confused right now about what is the best thing for her to do.

At TC Probst probsts the remaining players pushing their buttons. Matt is certain he is doomed, Andrea says it is nothing personal because everyone really loves him. Brenda pulls out Brenda lite and makes it clear though she's been playing to have a good time, she really has been trying to think about what is best for herself as well. Corinne with immunity says she knows what is best for herself and winning the II was what she had to do to show she deserves to win the game. She says some people try to act nice, but it is really not a nice game, you do have to do what is best for yourself and that's sometimes being tough as nails.

After the voting Probst goes to tally the votes. Reads the votes...

Matt
Andrea
Andrea
Andrea

Andrea is stunned but says, "Wow, you got me, didn't see that coming."

135. "RE: The Final Immunity Challenge"
With a tie between Andrea and Matt, I put their names into the randomizer -- best two out of three is the final member of the jury. And here are the results:

The Final 4 head back to Enil Edam and immediately begin scheming and plotting. Matt says that his only chance to to convince Brenda and Corinne to turn on Andrea through arousing their jealousy of her beauty.

Andrea, Brenda and Corinne have a brief discussion and the target is set: Matt. He's got at least three votes on the jury (from Hope, Julia and Michael) and could scrounge up two more.

But Matt grabs Brenda and Corinne and tells them that they have to get rid of Andrea. He tells them that she's a pretty girl and would have Malcolm's vote and could easily get the votes from the other guys on the jury.

Brenda and Corinne talk about it. Corinne's jealousy has been aroused enough that she thinks it might be a good idea to get rid of Andrea. But Brenda points out that Andrea has only one confirmed vote; Matt has three!

Since nobody's thinking of getting rid of Brenda, she counts the votes in confessional. Corinne is a goat and Andrea at most, has just one confirmed vote. Brenda thinks that she can get the others by staking a claim to being the best player.

Corinne says in a confessional that neither Andrea nor Matt should be anywhere near the finale, but one of them will be. She has to choose which one would be the lesser danger -- and she can't let emotions affect her decision.

At Tribal Council, a relatively healthy Malcolm joins the jury. Jeff Probst begins pushing buttons by turning to Corinne and asking her how she feels about winning Immunity. Corinne's thrilled to have a chance to face the jury.

When Probst asks who feels like they're in danger, we see Brenda and Matt raise their hands. Brenda says that while she doesn't think she's in that much danger she won't know for sure until she sees that her name isn't on the parchment.

Matt says that he's in danger but he hopes that Brenda and Corinne will help him get rid of Andrea, thus alerting Andrea to the fact that she's in danger. Andrea is genuinely surprised and hopes she's not being blindsided.

Probst asks Brenda if she now feels safe. Brenda says that she feels 99% safe but she can't feel 100% safe until she sees who Matt votes for. For all she knows, Matt could have decided to go after Brenda!

Corinne is asked who she's going to vote for. She says she's going to vote for the person who has the most guaranteed votes between Andrea and Matt, thus further indicating that she's not voting for Brenda.

Probst: It is time to vote. Andrea, you're up first.

Andrea votes for Matt, saying that it's nothing personal. Brenda and Corinne vote but their votes aren't revealed. Matt votes for Andrea, saying that she'll have all the guys wrapped around her finger.

Probst: I'll go get the votes. (Andrea and Matt are shown.) Once the votes are read, the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes.

Andrea and Matt look nervous. Brenda looks fairly serene, while Corinne looks calm.

Probst: First vote ... Andrea. Second vote ... Matt. One vote Andrea, one vote Matt. Second vote ... Matt. Two votes Matt, one vote Andrea, one vote left. (He pulls it out.) The final member of our jury ... Matt. Will you bring me your torch?

Matt shrugs, says "It was worth a shot," grabs his torch and heads over to Probst.

Probst: Matt, the tribe has spoken. (He snuffs out Matt's torch.) It's time for you to go. (Matt exits.) Well, we have our Final 3: Andrea, Brenda and Corinne. The power now shifts from you over to the jury -- seven people you had a hand in voting out plus one med-evac. They'll decide which one of you is the most deserving of the million dollar prize and the title of Sole Survivor. Grab your torches and head back to camp. Good night.

Andrea, Brenda and Corinne grab their torches and head out. In his final words, Matt says that he's glad he was the last Fan and the last man left standing. He wishes the Final 3 the best and says that he has no hard feelings. We see that Brenda and Corinne voted for Matt to go.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Matt won (or lost) the two-out-of-three deal, so he is the final member of the jury. Now I want you to decide what questions the jury members will ask Andrea, Brenda and Corinne. I'll take questions until tomorrow at the latest.

I'll be honest with y'all, I haven't the foggiest idea what questions to ask. Whereas there was plenty of nastiness in the final TC in the real game, if the real game had gone as our What-If game has, I really don't think there would be any real nastiness or any Sue Hawk speeches, and if in fact the real game had gone as our What-If game has, I think the final TC would have been boring as hell.

Maybe we should have kept Reynold around until the Final 3, then. He would've gotten a real Sue Hawk speech from Michael! Corinne might get some nasty comments but nothing on the order that Reynold would have gotten had he made the Final 3 like I wanted him to. Oh well, guess I'll have to do the questions myself.

138. "Final Tribal Council"
Okay, I'll think of the questions that will be asked at the Final Tribal Council since it seems nobody could think of some good ones. And here it is:

The Final 3 wake up on day 39. In confessional, Andrea says that she had a harder road than either Brenda or Corinne. She'd lost all her allies by the Final 4 while Brenda was able to keep Corinne.

Brenda says that losing Erik the Idiot and Francesca was hard, but she was able to grab Corinne and Reynold and even though she had to let Reynold go, she was able to direct the flow so that she'd make the Final Tribal Council.

Corinne says that Andrea and Brenda probably see her as a goat, someone who won't get any votes from the jury. She hopes she can correct the impression at the Final TC and earn herself the win.

We then see the Final 3 feast, which is well-received by all three. They eat plenty but try not to eat too much. Afterwards, all three split up, presumably to practice for the Final Tribal Council questions.

Andrea says that she's got an advantage over Corinne because she's a cute girl. But what she really needs to do is to show that she was just as good a strategic player as Brenda because Brenda is also a pretty girl.

Brenda says that she has to present herself as the better player. And where Reynold is concerned, she has to make sure that he doesn't have enough sour grapes to vote for Andrea. She hopes she can do so.

Corinne says that a lot of people probably see her as a coat-tail rider, riding Brenda's coat-tails. What's more, the guys are more likely to vote for Andrea or Brenda than for her. She's got a tough road ahead.

Andrea, Brenda and Corinne head off to Tribal Council and hold hands as they sit down. Jeff Probst brings in the members of the jury: Michael, Cochran, Julia, Hope, Dawn, Reynold, a healthy Malcolm and Matt.

Andrea begins her opening statement. She says that her plan was to form an alliance with a strong guy and use him to protect her while she made alliances with others. She thinks she was successful, since she got here even when her protection was eliminated.

Brenda is up next. She says that her plan was to have a couple of goats to protect her while she subtly directed things so that the threats to her game left while she stayed. She hopes they see her as the best player of the three.

Corinne says that she allowed herself to be seen as a goat for Brenda but she was as much of a strategist as Brenda. She then reveals that it was her idea to get rid of Dawn, not Brenda's. She hopes that proves she was a player.

It's now time for the jury to ask questions. Reynold is up first and turns to ask Brenda and Corinne if they voted him out. Brenda and Corinne both reveal that they voted for Andrea and that Andrea and Malcolm voted for him.

When asked why they didn't try to save him, Brenda says that she and Corinne tried but Andrea and Malcolm were ready to get rid of Reynold before Matt, so she decided that she and Corinne should just flush out Andrea's Hidden Immunity Idol.

Reynold has no questions for Andrea, so Cochran stands up. He says that although it might have been Corinne's idea to get rid of Dawn, she was still pretty much carried by Brenda and was at best, a junior partner.

He asks Andrea what makes her a better strategist than Brenda. Andrea says she was the force behind getting rid of Reynold. Cochran then asks Brenda the same question and she says, "I got rid of you."

Julia stands up next and says that all three of them deserved to get there. That said, she thinks that Corinne deserves the win less than Brenda or even Andrea because at least those two actively plotted.

She then says that she thinks Andrea did a fair share of plotting but she thinks too much of Andrea's strategy depended upon being a cute girl and relying on her looks to ensnare big, strong guys into protecting her.

She then praises Brenda for not using her looks to ensnare big, strong guys into protecting her but instead using her brains to plot her way through the game. She concludes by calling Brenda a class act.

Dawn then stands up and says that it was a relief to be voted out when she did because the game was destroying her. She has no hard feelings.

She then asks what they learned about themselves in the game. Corinne says that she learned to be nicer while still playing the game. Andrea said that she learned how to be a decent strategist. Brenda says that she learned how to be flexible and adjust in order to remain in charge of the game.

Michael stands up and thanks Andrea for getting rid of Reynold. If Reynold had been there instead of Andrea, he'd have a real bitter speech. But since Reynold's on the jury, he has no bitter questions.

But he does want to know why each one thinks the other shouldn't win. Andrea says that Corinne rode Brenda's coat-tails and was the goat. She then says that Brenda had more blood on her hands than Andrea did.

Brenda says that Corinne was not the most likeable person and wasn't enough of a strategist. She says that Andrea relied too much on being a cute girl and having a big, strong guy protect her.

Corinne says that Andrea's just a cute girl who relied on having big, strong guys protect her. She has a hard time thinking of something that would reflect badly on Brenda but finally says that Brenda got rid of Cochran.

Michael sits down and Hope stands up. She has only one question for all of them. She wants them to pick a number between 1 and 30. Andrea picks 15. Brenda picks 7 and Corinne picks 29.

Malcolm stands up and says that he wishes he hadn't gotten sick. He asks Brenda what animal she thinks she played as during the game. Brenda thinks for a bit and then says a chameleon because she had to adapt yet make sure she was on top of things.

Malcolm then praises Andrea for being a good strategist before asking Corinne if she made any other moves besides getting rid of Dawn. Corinne says that she worked with Brenda on all the other moves they made.

Finally, it's Matt's turn. He asks Corinne if it was her decision to get rid of him or if it was Brenda's. Corinne admits that she wanted to get rid of Andrea but she realized that Brenda was right in wanting to vote out Matt.

He then asks Andrea and Brenda if they think they were able to be nice while playing the game. Andrea thinks she was successful for the most part and Brenda says that she certainly thinks she was successful, since she was never really in danger.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, I've done the questions. Now it's time for the final vote. I want you to decide whether Andrea, Brenda or Corinne is the Sole Survivor and who votes for which woman. The woman with the most votes will win the title and the million dollars. I'll take votes until tomorrow at the latest, so please vote!

139. "RE: Final Tribal Council"
Michael is heard saying, "Frankly I think the best player in this game is sitting up here beside me, and were it not for the only real mistake he made, he'd be up there beating all of you." He holds up a vote for Andrea.

Cochran is heard saying, "I worked with all three of you for three weeks plus, and all of you have your pros and cons, but I'm voting for the best player up there." He votes for Brenda.

Julia says, "You're the toughest woman here," as she votes for Brenda.

Hope says nothing but has a sour look on her face as she votes for Andrea.

Dawn says, "You were better to me than anybody out here" as she votes for Brenda.

Reynold says "You're pretty even as players, I'm voting for who I like the best." His vote is for Andrea.

Malcolm says, "You're more than just a pretty face and a sexy body, you know this game." He votes for Andrea.

Matt says "Close call, but if I had to work with one of you full time for 39 days, it would be you", as he holds up a vote for Andrea, who wins by 5 votes to Brenda's 3 and Corinne's 0.

146. "RE: Final Tribal Council"
I'm going to use Dabo's tiebreaker system that was proposed for the Final Tribal Council to do the results:

We return from commercial.

Jeff Probst: The power has passed to the hands of the jury. Jury, you are voting for a winner. I want you to go into the booth, one at a time, and cast your vote for the person you think deserves the title of Sole Survivor. If there is a first-place tie, each member of the Final 3 had earlier gone into the booth and cast a vote for the person they thought should win if they wound up coming in third! That person's vote will break the tie. Michael, you're up.

Michael goes up to vote first, but we don't see his vote. He is followed by Cochran, who says that he is voting for the best player, and we see him vote for Brenda. Next up is Julia, but we don't see who she voted for, nor do we see who Hope voted for. Then, we see Reynold, who says "I admire your tenacity," before casting his vote for Corinne. Then, we see Dawn cast her vote before we see Malcolm step up. He says, "You were my closest ally," as we see him cast his vote for Andrea. Finally, we see Matt vote.

Probst: For the last time, I'll go get the votes. (Andrea, Brenda and Corinne all look on.) I know you'd love to have me read these votes out right now. Unfortunately, you'll all have to wait until we head back to the States.

Probst leaves and soon we see him enter -- and we're in the studio for the reading of the final votes!

Probst: Welcome, everyone! Here we are, with Andrea, Brenda and Corinne. I have the votes! Remember, you want to see your name on the parchment this time. For the last time, I'll read the votes.

Andrea, Brenda and Corinne hold hands.

Probst: First vote ... Andrea. Second vote ... Brenda. Third vote ... Corinne. One vote Andrea, one vote Brenda, one vote Corinne. Fourth vote ... Andrea. Two votes Andrea. Fifth vote ... Brenda. Two votes Andrea, two votes Brenda. Sixth vote ... Corinne. We're tied again. Two votes Andrea, two votes Brenda, two votes Corinne. Seventh vote ... Andrea. Three votes Andrea, two votes Brenda, two votes Corinne, one vote left. Eighth vote ... Corinne.

Brenda and Corinne both look genuinely surprised.

Probst: We have a tie between Andrea and Corinne. Brenda, you aren't eligible for the win. Therefore, your vote will break the tie between Andrea and Corinne. (He reads the note.) The winner of Survivor: Caramoan is ... Andrea!

Andrea gasps and hugs Brenda and Corinne before heading over to her delighted family, who hugs her.

****************************************************************************************

Okay, Andrea and Corinne tied for the win and I chose Andrea (mainly because she had one sole first-place vote, courtesy of Round Robin). Let me know how you liked the game, guys!
