Survivor Live Excerpts: Charlie Forrest
The screen shows Dalton Ross and Jenna Morasca, hosts of Survivor Live, on a faux jungle background with a Survivor: All-Stars II logo.
Dalton: Helloooo again, Survivor fans, and welcome to another edition of Survivor Live. I'm your host, Dalton Ross, and with me as always is the lovely Jenna Morasca.
Jenna: Last nightís show was possibly the most heartbreaking episode of Survivor ever. I still think about how hard it was to leave the first All-Stars season because of my mother, but at least I had a good reason. The destruction of Charlie Forrest was the most senseless vote Iíve ever seen.
Dalton: Joining us today is the victim of the very upsetting decision last night.
The camera zooms back to show Dalton and Jenna as well as Charlie, whoís wearing a polo shirt with a Detroit Tigers insignia on it along with black slacks.
Jenna: Welcome to the show, Charlie.
Charlie: Thanks for having me, guys.
Dalton: First, I have to ask, how are you holding up?
Charlie: Not too well, Dalton. I watched the show last night with my son, and he was ready to leap through the TV screen and bash Danniís head against a rock.
Jenna: And Cirie and Danni said your son had a crush on Danni.
Charlie: He did. I assure you, he doesnít anymore. I actually had to calm him down because he was ready to go and hunt down Danni and dismember her. He doesnít forgive anywhere near as easily as I do.
Dalton: So have you forgiven Danni?
Charlie: Not a chance in hell. The way Paula talked about me, though, Iím past that, and I hope she is, too.
Jenna: Are you on speaking terms with either Danni or Paula?
Charlie: Danni, no. Paula, yes. Itís very hard to talk to her knowing sheís still suspicious of me.
Dalton: After last night, she has to know you didnít do anything.
Charlie: She does, but she doesnít like that I put myself in that situation. I donít really know how it happened myself. I do know that I havenít touched alcohol since that night.
Jenna: Thatís a big step, Charlie. Is this for Paula or just because you donít feel like drinking beer anymore?
Charlie: Both, actually. I hope one day to be married to Paula and be the father that her children donít have. And I really want Derek to have a mom, too.
Dalton: You have to know how Derek feels about Paula. On the show, he made it apparent heís close to her, but after she called him worthless, what did he think?
Charlie: Unfortunately, Derek hates her now. Heís almost as mad at her as he is at Danni. Heís told me that heís not coming to the reunion because he doesnít want to end up in jail for killing them.
Jenna: Wow. It seems like your sonís taking this a lot harder than you are.
Charlie: I asked him to join me today on Survivor Live. He said heíd rather be murdered.
The Finale Begins Ė air date 5/18/2008
The camera pans to a vast array of islands in what appears to be the South Pacific. After showing a few nature shots, featuring a shimmering blue Pacific Ocean, a handful of atolls, and some small islands, the camera focuses in on an open area of the Pacific.
Jeff (voice-over): Thirty-six days ago, twenty veteran Survivors gathered in the Gambier island chain for a chance to play the game of a lifetime one more time. The seven most recent seasons were all represented by at least one Survivor.
The camera shows a view of all twenty Survivors in a boat; a particular focus is on Yau-Man, Sandra, and Charlie.
Jeff (voice-over): The beginning appeared very similar to the opening of Survivor: Palau.
Jeff: Some of you might recognize the setup here.
Ian: A little too well, Jeff.
Jeff: There are two necklaces waiting for you. One will go to the first man, and one to the first woman, who can reach shore and claim them.
Jeff (voice-over): In two close races, Tom and Maria claimed the immunity necklaces, and later, they learned how valuable these necklaces were.
Jeff: Tom and Maria will each be immune the first time they go to Tribal Council. That may be tonight or it may be days from now, but the first time Tom or Maria goes to Tribal, they are immune.
Jeff (voice-over): Ami began scheming right away to get Chris out.
Ami: So I talked to Chris, and he told me what his plans are.
Sandra: He just came out and told you?
Ami: Hey, he's actually a good friend of mine outside the show, but in the game, he's completely evil.
Danielle: I don't get it; what are you trying to tell me?
Ami: His plans include Rafe, Ozzy, and Terry. No girls in that group.
Jeff (voice-over): And she began sparring with Maria over hockey allegiance.
Ami: Don't tell me you're one of those damn front-runners.
Maria: Just rooting for the home team like we all do. It's not my fault my team's in first place and yours isn't.
(confessional) Maria: So wait a minute. My first rivalry on the island isn't about my nudity or about my gameplay or even my friendship with Charlie. It's about my hockey allegiance? Of all things for people to draw lines over.
Maria: Enjoy being out of the playoffs again.
(confessional) Ami: When that annoying little bitch from Buffalo gave me hell, it was on.
Jeff (voice-over): On the third day, the Survivors were split into tribes.
The camera shows a tribe consisting of Maria, Ami, Danielle, Paula, Sandra, Ian, Jonathan, Ozzy, Rafe, and Yau-Man, all wearing Ta'aroa blue.
Jeff: You guys are Ta'aroa.
The camera switches to the other tribe, consisting of Tom, Charlie, Chris, Terry, Yul, Cirie, Danni, Harriet, Parvati, and Twila, all wearing Fati silver.
Jeff: You guys are Fati.
Jeff (voice-over): And at the first challenge, Ami struggled.
The camera shows Ami failing to unhook her tribeís raft.
Jeff (voice-over): And it cost her tribe.
Maria: What the hell?
Danielle: Rafe, I thought we had it!
Rafe: I did too! Who didn't get one!
Jeff: A problem with Ta'aroa! One hook was still latched! Make sure you have it!
Jeff (voice-over): With Taíaroa struggling, Fati cruised to a victory.
Everyone on Fati grabs the raft to cros the line while Ta'aroa gets theirs unstuck and through. Everyone on Fati is across.
Jeff: Fati wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): The rules were laid out for every Tribal Council.
Jeff: For today, you will go back to Angakauitai, where you just came from. For the remainder of the day until Tribal Council, you will be able to search for a hidden immunity idol somewhere in the campsite. The first clue to the whereabouts of the idol will be waiting for you there.
Jeff (voice-over): At the neutral camp, the blame came down on Ami for losing the challenge.
Sandra: It's that motherf----- Ami who said she had a hook undone and didn't.
Jeff (voice-over): But Ozzy wanted to protect Ami.
Jonathan: If you mean the hook that wasn't free, that was Ami's fault, not Rafe's. Rafe got his unhooked.
Ozzy: I'm sure he told you that. He's lying.
Jeff (voice-over): And there were two other names kicked around for dismissal.
Ami: So I think the plan at this time is to vote off Yau-Man.
Paula: Why him?
Ami: He's useless in challenges, and I just see him getting too close to Ozzy and Jonathan.
Paula: I don't know...Sandra's a better bet to get rid of.
Jeff (voice-over): At Tribal Council, Sandra became the first person voted out of the game.
Jeff: Sandra, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Sandra's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): That night, Taíaroa got to their new campsite, and Paula wanted to start building right away.
Paula: I don't know about you guys, but I think we need to get something going tonight; I don't care if it takes us all night.
Jeff (voice-over): But her plan caused dissention right away.
Danielle: Should we take a vote?
Ami: I'm for building the shelter now.
Maria: I don't like the idea.
Ami: That's because you're a whining crybaby who won't do any work.
Jeff (voice-over): At Fati, Yul didnít want to get too cocky.
Danni (to the five mentioned): Hey guys, what's for breakfast?
Tom: The other tribe.
(confessional) Yul: It's nice to be a winner. But I'm afraid we're getting too cocky, and if we start acting like a bunch of punks, I'll have to rein the tribe in a bit.
Jeff (voice-over): The reward challenge tested the Survivorsí stomachs. Some failed miserably.
The camera shows Twila drinking cowís blood quickly while Ami doesnít touch it.
Jeff (voice-over): Jonathan and Terry got tested the most.
Jeff: Fafaru is probably the vilest substance we've ever served on Survivor. I know it smells the worst.
Terry: Do we have to bob for it?
Jeff: No, you can use your hands.
Jonathan: So my hands and my breath can smell like horse piss.
Jeff (voice-over): But Danni psyched Ian out, securing Fatiís second win in a row.
Danni immediately chugs her smoothie; Ian does the same. Danni begins to gag, however, and Ian pauses.
Jeff: Ian getting a little nervous! Danni might be getting sick!
Danni then resumes chugging, and before Ian knows what hit him, Danni sets her glass down and opens her mouth.
Jeff: Danni's done! Fati wins reward!
Jeff (voice-over): The fishing gear started a fight between Terry and Charlie.
Terry: Look, you don't need to be out there. Plain and simple. I will fish. You go do something else.
Charlie: I was the provider, too. We all were. You're just insisting on it because you're a stubborn jerk who thinks everything has to be your way.
Jeff (voice-over): And things turned personal quickly.
Terry: I deal with enough people to know when I'm right. I was right about the war, and I'm right about--
Charlie: Excuse me? The war? Don't even get me started on--
Terry: Don't tell me you're one of those damn peaceniks that thinks we need to get the hell out of--
Charlie: I know a bad idea when I see one--
Terry: And yet you still want to go fishing?
Jeff (voice-over): At Taíaroa, the situation got dire.
(confessional) Yau-Man: On my season, we had to get up early to suck the water off the leaves. I think we will have to do the same again.
Jeff (voice-over): And the gameís first alliance came from Fati
(confessional) Tom: I am definitely aligned with Cirie. I would go all the way to the end with her, even if it means I lose.
Charlie (to Cirie): So the way I see it, you, me, Tom, and Danni all need to watch each other's backs. As long as we stick together, we can pretty well guarantee ourselves a good place in the game.
(confessional) Cirie: When Charlie approached me with an alliance proposition, I knew he was doing it for one reason, and that was to get Terry to scramble. Let's just say I don't have any problem with that idea.
Jeff (voice-over): At the immunity challenge, Charlie stayed one step ahead of his opponents.
Jeff: Fati down a boat as well! Ta'aroa back in it!
Rafe: OK, onto the next...wait, I can't steer.
Maria: Let me try...wait, why is it wet in here?
The three turn around to see Charlie standing and holding a grappling hook.
Charlie: Time's up, guys.
Jeff (voice-over): And with Amiís help, Fati cruised to another immunity win.
Ami stands on the boat's edge to try to flip the Fati boat. As she does this, Chris pushes down on that edge and the boat flips over.
Jeff: Ami helps sink her own boat! Fati wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At the neutral camp, the idol clue was difficult to solve for some.
Danielle (from clue): Like an actor turned real estate mogul, I have two Hotels and an Oscar. Between me and a cross one, count halfway and dig.
Ami: Huh? Is this clue even written in English?
Jeff (voice-over): But Paula figured it out right away.
(confessional) Paula: I solved it right away. Charlie and I did a lot of talking when we went out, and he explained the whole military alphabet. Two Hotels and one Oscar is really two H's and an O, meaning a water source.
Jeff (voice-over): Paula told Jonathan that she had the idol, but Jonathan spilled the beans.
Jonathan (to Yau-Man): Paula has the idol.
Yau-Man: Don't play games with me.
Jonathan: No, she really has the idol.
Jeff (voice-over): And Yau-Man wasnít happy about it.
Yau-Man: No, really, don't play games with me. All you're doing is making yourself look bad by blabbing.
(confessional) Yau-Man: I know Paula, and I know she told Jonathan in confidence, and pretty soon, it will be all over camp.
Jeff (voice-over): At Tribal Council, Maria called out Ami for her poor performance.
Jeff: Is there any reason you guys can't get a break?
Maria: I can tell you why, Jeff. Someone in our tribe who shall remain nameless **sneeze**Ami**sneeze**
Jeff (voice-over): And when it came to Paula finding the idol, Yau-Man backed her up.
Yau-Man: Maybe someone finally found my fake idol.
The tribe, with the exception of Ami, chuckles at that.
Yau-Man: For what it's worth, if Paula found the idol, she hasn't told me. And I couldn't help but notice Ami's dead-serious tone when I said that. I think someone has a guilty conscience.
Ami: Maybe you're just not funny, Yau-Man.
Yau-Man: Maybe you left your sense of humor back at camp.
Jeff (voice-over): And it was Ami who paid the price.
Jeff: Ami, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Ami's torch.
Ami (shouting): You will NEVER win, Maria. NEVER.
Maria (smiling): I beat you. That's good enough for me.
Jeff (voice-over): The next day at Taíaroa, everyone thought Ian broke his word.
Jonathan: Look, are you saying you didn't vote for Ami?
Ian: That's the honest-to-God truth. I voted Paula just like the plan was. I don't know who voted Ami besides the four in the other alliance.
Danielle: You better be telling us the truth.
Ian (exasperated): I am! If I were screwing you, you would know it!
Jeff (voice-over): And the need for fire reached desperation.
Paula: Yau-Man! Get over here and bring your glasses!
Yau-Man walks over to Paula and Rafe's fire pit.
Paula: Do whatever you did in Fiji to get a fire going.
Jeff (voice-over): And Paula used the immunity idol she claimed she didnít have to make fire.
Paula: Times like this I wish my husband hadn't left me so I'd be bothered to wear my engagement ring. Now if only I had something that had a reflective face, like a watch...wait a minute.
Paula takes out her immunity idol; the idol has something small and reflective on it.
Paula: This ought to help out.
Paula bends the small, reflective stone on her immunity idol; Yau-Man uses his glases at the same time. A larger spark is generated, and immediately, the tinder starts burning.
Paula and Yau-Man exchange high-fives and begin putting bigger wood on the fire; it catches in time.
Jeff (voice-over): At Fati, Charlie and Terry mended fences.
Terry: I have a lot of things I believe in. But I guess other people do, too, and you have your reasons.
Charlie: Hey, four years ago, I thought it was a great idea to get rid of some bad guys over in the Middle East. But just because you're for the war and always have been, and I'm against it and mostly always have been, that doesn't mean we have to end up hating each other.
Terry: I can't hate you, Charlie. I respect you too damn much.
The two men shake hands and part ways.
(confessional) Charlie: Terry's an all right guy. I would go out and have a beer with him.
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward challenge, Taíaroa finally got flint.
Jeff: You guys made a fire?
Paula: Yau-Man's glasses came in handy.
Jeff: Well, since you guys made fire on your own, you guys get flint for fire.
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie played dumb.
Maria: Charlie, do you have a bar of soap?
Charlie: What the hell's soap?
Maria: It's the little square thingy.
Charlie: Nope, nothing square in here.
Jeff (voice-over): And Parvati, having flirted with guys in the Cook Islands, decided to flirt with Maria here.
Maria: Parvati, do you have pumice?
Parvati: Come see for yourself.
Maria walks over to Parvati's box; as she arrives, Parvati shuts it.
Parvati: Not so fast, sugar. You'll have to wait until we're tribemates.
Jeff (voice-over): And she ended up topless.
Paula: I'm just amazed they both still have their clothes on.
Parvati is in just her red bikini; Maria is still in her orange tank top and navy blue shorts.
Parvati: I think someone wants to see more.
Parvati undoes her bikini top and hands it to Maria.
Parvati: That's yours to keep, baby.
Jeff (voice-over): And later naked.
Maria: Parvati, do you have a bikini bottom...I mean, toothpaste?
Parvati: For you, anything.
Parvati walks over to Maria's box, drops her bikini bottom, and hands her toothpaste over. Before Maria leaves, Parvati leans in to kiss her.
Maria: Easy, girl; not until we're tribemates.
Jeff (voice-over): Maria didnít keep Parvatiís clothes, but they cemented a desire to be on the same tribe.
Maria hands back Parvati's bikini; Parvati leans in for a kiss, which Maria accepts.
Jeff (voice-over): Despite the win, Terry was unhappy with Parvatiís display at the challenge.
Terry (to Parvati): I don't think we want any more shows like that.
Parvati: Oh come on, Terry; I'm just having fun. I'm not gay and I wasn't planning on letting her keep my bikini.
Terry: I just think it might be a problem for challenges in the future. I don't want our performance to turn into a farce. We're winning; let's keep it that way.
(confessional) Parvati: Come on; we won! We're winning, and I don't see a problem with flirting a bit. It helped, and even if it didn't, it didn't hurt.
Jeff (voice-over): At Taíaroa, Rafe and Ian were both sent to flip each other.
Ian: You know you're number four in their alliance.
Rafe: I was about to say the same to you.
Ian: So wait, your alliance sent you to swing me?
Rafe: I take it yours sent you to swing me.
(confessional) Rafe: Ozzy sent Ian to convince me to vote with them. At the same time, Paula sent me to swing Ian. And naturally, we got some ideas of our own.
Jeff (voice-over): Before the immunity challenge, Ozzy gave a rousing speech to fire up his tribe.
Ozzy: Today...we're no longer the loser tribe. We're no longer winless. We turn the tide and we make them choke on their arrogance. We're not going down this time! Today...is the day we end the losing and we go out and WIN! Today...is the day we wipe that smirk off Parvati's face and tell her to take her naked ass back to her own beach! We make Tom use that immunity necklace the way Maria had to use hers! We make them scramble for that immunity idol! We come back home after the challenge and we enjoy the evening while they get their asses grilled by Probst! Today we kill Fati!
Entire tribe (in perfect unison): KILL FATI!
Jeff (voice-over): Taíaroa came out swinging against the favored Fati tribe.
Jeff: Twila wants to pull Fati even! She has to outrun Ozzy! Not too many people can!
Ozzy dashes back with a basket before Twila reaches the Attack Zone.
Jeff: Ozzy scores for Ta'aroa! His team's up four-two!
Jeff (voice-over): Fati got undisciplined, and four players got thrown out of the challenge.
Jeff: NO CHOKING, Terry! You're OUT! Paula gets a free pass!
Jeff: I said NO PUNCHING! Fati getting very undisciplined! Parvati's out!
Jeff: Last warning, guys! Clear the course!
Chris (also ignoring Jeff): Give it a rest already! We'll get those back!
Jeff: Chris! Tom! You've been warned! You're both out! Get back to the boat!
Jeff (voice-over): With a four-member advantage, Taíaroa cruised to their first challenge win.
Jeff: Yul's down! Nothing stopping Maria now!
Maria scampers to the end and places the basket in her boat.
Jeff: That's ten! Ta'aroa wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): For the first time, Fati had to search for this immunity idol and make a decision about voting someone out. Two names came up.
Tom: I want Chris gone after that.
Cirie: Fine with me.
Chris: That challenge was a joke. I tripped Tom on accident, and we weren't winning anyway. I want Parvati out.
Jeff (voice-over): At Tribal Council, Parvati defended herself.
Jeff: One minute you're kissing Maria and giving her your clothes; the next, you're punching her in the arm. What gives?
Parvati: I did what the situation called for. At the immunity challenge, I wanted to fight.
Jeff (voice-over): And it worked; Chris was voted out of the game.
Jeff: Chris, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Chris' torch.
Jeff (voice-over): The next day, Taíaroa was still celebrating, but they wanted another shot at Fati.
Ozzy: We all need to stick together. When we win, we all get along a lot better and I have more time to fish. We're better fed, we're happier, and we don't do stupid things like split the tribe in half.
Yau-Man: I am still enjoying that win yesterday.
Ozzy: I need to get some more frustration out, though.
Jeff (voice-over): The reward challenge gave them that opportunity.
Jeff: You guys will be playing an old-fashioned game of dodgeball.
Jeff (voice-over): Fati won the first match and had Taíaroa down to just Yau-Man, but he battled back.
Jeff: Yau-Man has to take out both Tom and Charlie! No small feat!
Tom fires a rocket at Yau-Man; it bounces off his chest, in the air near Yau-Man, and Charlie fires one at him as well. Charlie misses, and Yau-Man catches Tom's throw.
Jeff: Yau-Man just completely changed the face of this challenge!
Jeff (voice-over): In the third and deciding match, Parvati and Maria decided to try to psych each other out, but Parvati paid the price.
Maria: I can't take you out, Parv; I love you too much.
Parvati: I love you too Maria--
Ozzy launches a cannon at Parvati; hitting her in the side. She goes down like a ton of bricks.
Ozzy (impersonating Ben Stiller): Joanie loves Chachi!
Jeff (voice-over): Taíaroa had the upper hand, and they used it to seal their first reward.
Jeff: Tom's all alone with just a ball and a prayer! Can he pull a Yau-Man?
Ozzy launches his ball at Tom and hits him in the arm; Tom can't catch it in time.
Jeff: No indeed; Tom's down! Ta'aroa wins reward!
Jeff (voice-over): At Taíaroa, Yau-Man and Jonathan tried to make Ozzy replaceable.
The camera shows Jonathan and Yau-Man carving a sharp stick, presumable to use while fishing.
Yau-Man: I call it Superpole 3000. A thousand times better than Superpole 2000.
Jonathan: I hope it's better; Superpole 2000 didn't catch anything.
Jeff (voice-over): And Charlie opened up to his tribe.
The camera focuses on Charlieís left hand, which is missing two fingers, and then back to his tribe.
Terry: I know it's probably a sensitive subject, but what happened to your hand, Charlie?
Charlie: Well, if you must know...(sigh)...I lost these fingers in battle. I got shot in Grenada.
Harriet: I wondered that, but I was scared to ask.
Jeff (voice-over): And the next day, he poured his heart out to Danni.
Charlie: I have to be honest, and I don't want this to come between us or anything. Promise me that we're still allies and still in this together and everything--
Danni: You have my word.
Charlie: I just want to make sure this doesn't drive a wedge between us.
Danni: Come on, Charlie; nothing could do that. It's not like you're in love with me or anything.
Charlie looks up at Danni with a semi-worried look.
Danni: Oh my God...
(confessional) Danni: Charlie's been in battle, seen his best friend die before his own eyes, raised his son on his own, survived a heart attack, gotten a college degree at 44 years old, and, by all accounts, took a lot of hell from his boss. If there's one thing that scares him, it's telling a younger woman how he feels about her.
Jeff (voice-over): But Danni reciprocated.
(confessional) Danni: It helps when I feel the exact same way. It wasn't really love at first sight when I met Charlie, but it was definitely love at first chat.
Jeff (voice-over): The tribe didnít pick up on Charlie being close to Danni, but they did pick up on his leadership status.
(confessional) Tom: It's not hard to miss that Charlie's basically the king of Fati. The women love him, and the guys either respect or fear him.
Jeff (voice-over): And at Taíaroa, Maria had turned over a new leaf.
The camera shows Ozzy scaling a fish; Maria walks up behind him.
Maria: Hey, big guy. What's up?
Ozzy: Breakfast. You want to help?
Maria: What do I do?
Ozzy: You have to scale the fish like this--
Ozzy shows Maria how to scale a fish. Maria hangs over Ozzy's shoulders and does the same thing.
Jeff (voice-over): The immunity challenge came down to Yau-Man against Terry.
The camera shows both men trying to toss a ring around a hook.
As Terry's falls short again, Yau-Man's lands just around the grappling hook. He pulls, and the blue Ta'aroa flag rises.
Jeff: Ta'aroa wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At the neutral camp, over half the tribe was a target for the vote.
Parvati: Well, the alliance wants to vote off Terry, but I want to change things up and get rid of someone else.
Parvati: I want to get rid of Tom.
Yul (to Harriet): Any chance we can get out Parvati?
Cirie: We need Harriet out. She's trouble.
Parvati: I want Yul gone. He's dangerous, and he's really not that useful in challenges.
Jeff (voice-over): And four people received votes.
The camera shows votes for Danni, Harriet, Parvati, and Yul.
Jeff (voice-over): However, the tribe blindsided Yul.
Jeff: Yul, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Yul's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): After the vote, there was confusion about Yul being eliminated with only four votes.
Cirie (to Charlie and Danni): So who did you guys vote for?
Danni: I voted Yul, just like the plan was.
Cirie: I wasn't told. I voted Harriet.
(confessional) Cirie: Yul managed to be voted off last night with just four votes. Clearly the alliance didn't do its job.
Jeff (voice-over): At Taíaroa, Ozzy and Paula applauded Mariaís new work ethic.
Ozzy: You're doing incredible. And here I was thinking you were just here for the experience and didn't care if you did any work or laid around on the beach all day.
Paula: Naked, I might add.
(confessional) Maria: I came here again because a lot of people thought I won in a total fluke. I'm here to prove them wrong and show that Maria Savovic is not a lazy, naked bimbo.
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward challenge, Charlie and Ozzy were called out as the tribeís leaders, and they were taken away from their tribes.
Jeff: So Charlie and Ozzy are pretty much the leaders out here? Anyone think otherwise?
The tribes are noticeably silent.
Jeff: Charlie and Ozzy, you need to come with me this way.
Jeff (voice-over): In the challenge, Fati took an early lead.
The camera shows Tom and Danni overpowering Ian and Danielle.
Jeff (voice-over): But Taíaroa stormed back and won.
Tom tries to hold the boulder back; however, Rafe charges it past the goal line.
Jeff: Ta'aroa wins reward!
Jeff (voice-over): Away from the challenge, Charlie and Ozzy had to swap tribe members.
Charlie (from the board): Today, each of you will be the tribe's captain. You will send four members of your own tribes to the opposing tribes.
Ozzy: Wait, so I have to give up tribe members?
(confessional) Charlie: On one hand, I have to protect my alliance. On the other hand, I have to do what's the fairest thing for both tribes, or Ozzy won't agree to it.
Jeff (voice-over): And they revealed their decisions with both tribes gathered at the neutral camp.
Charlie: Tom, get over here. Cirie and Danni, you too.
Ozzy: Yau-Man, Ian, and Paula, you're all still on my tribe.
Charlie: Maria, Danielle, Rafe, and Jonathan, you're all on my tribe now.
Ozzy: Harriet, Parvati, Twila, and Terry, you're all coming with me.
Jeff (voice-over): The old Taíaroa were allowed to try for the individual immunity, and Yau-Man got it.
Yau-Man opens the safe. Inside is an immunity idol, which looks like one of the turtle idols from Fiji.
Yau-Man: It's a turtle! And it comes with instructions!
Yau-Man unrolls the instructions.
Yau-Man: You are under no obligation to display this until tonight's vote. Your tribe will go to Tribal Council first, and afterwards, you will assign this to a member of the opposing tribe.
Jeff (voice-over): Without a chance at individual immunity, Parvati caught Maria finding the immunity idol and begged her for it.
Parvati: I want that immunity combination. I want you to find it for me.
Maria: What am I, your bitch? Get the hell out of here.
Parvati: Fine. I'll just have to give away your secret.
Jeff (voice-over): No one wanted to help Parvati stay.
Parvati: So wait a second. It's like this - if you stick with me and help me keep around, I'll watch your back.
Harriet: I think there's only a few things you're any good at watching around here.
Parvati: Oh, come on. I'm done flirting.
Harriet: And I'm done with you.
Jeff (voice-over): Parvatiís fears came true when she was voted out unanimously by her new tribe.
Jeff: Parvati, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Parvati's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): When Fati came in for Tribal Council, it was clear that the tribe was divided down the middle, and the votes reflected that.
Jeff: We have a tie. Four votes each for Danielle and Cirie. I know there's at least one idol in here. We'll see who it's for. If it's Danielle or Cirie, they are safe.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Yau-Man didnít give immunity to either of them, and a tiebreak was necessary.
Jeff: Yau-Man gave immunity to Rafe. That means we're still tied. Here's how it will work. We have used a few different tiebreaks in seasons past; in fact, I can count five, including one in the Amazon that we never got to use. There is also an experimental tiebreak in here. You will select your tiebreaking method at random from here. One of you will do the honors.
Jeff (voice-over): Faced with the same tiebreak that they went through in Exile Island, Danielle tried to beat Cirie again, but she failed and was out of the game.
Jeff: Danielle, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Danielle's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): Back at Fati, Maria tried to cut a deal with her new tribemates.
Maria: I know you're close to Charlie, so here's the plan. You, me, Charlie, Jonathan, and Rafe.
Danni: You're counting on two of us to flip over?
Maria: For good. I want this alliance past the merge as well.
Jeff (voice-over): And Taíaroa was shocked to discover that their tarps were missing.
Ian: Don't tell me we don't have anything.
Ozzy: I can only hope the other tribe's in the same situation we are.
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward challenge, both tribes learned what happened to their reward items.
Jeff: Well, a few of you probably noticed that all your reward items are missing from camp. Well...
Jeff uncovers a basket; all the rewards are there.
Jeff: ...they're here, and the winning tribe gets everything.
Jeff (voice-over): The tribes played a strategy game to determine the winner, and Harriet made a careless mistake.
Jeff: Harriet, you're out of bullets. You can't use a gun; you're out.
Harriet: Son of a bitch. I did this last time, too.
Jeff (voice-over): And Harrietís absent-minded mistake helped Fati win again.
The camera shows Tom placing a gun on the table while Yau-Man lays out a bullet.
Jeff: That sinks Yau-Man; Fati wins reward!
Jeff (voice-over): Back at Fati, Rafe tried to work on Danni.
Rafe: Really, we think you're on the outs with your alliance. Tom's a provider and so is Charlie. We want you to come over with us.
Danni: Uh-huh. That makes sense. You guys already have a winner, so I wouldn't be left out.
Rafe: Exactly. Besides, we've been allied since the first time we were out here.
Danni: I suppose I owe you one.
Jeff (voice-over): And Danni pretended to buy it, but she wasnít interested.
(confessional) Danni: I don't owe Rafe jack-s---. I was sitting there like I bought his story, but I have an alliance. I don't need Rafe's alliance. He has nothing I want.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Charlie tried to ensure Mariaís loyalty with a fishing lesson.
(confessional) Maria: My fishing lesson seemed to last all evening; it was dark before I came back.
Jeff (voice-over): But later, they played a trick on her and hid her clothes when she went for a skinny dip.
Charlie: Well, fancy having you back. How's the water?
Maria: It's fine; I enjoyed it. I better have, because it looks like the rest of my time out here will be like this.
Charlie: Like what?
Maria: The tide took all my clothes. I'm naked, and I'm stuck like this.
Jeff (voice-over): And she wasnít amused when she found out Charlie and Danni played a joke on her.
Maria: Oh, come on; that wasn't very nice.
Charlie: Come on; you had it coming.
(confessional) Maria: Yes, I had it coming. No, I didn't have to like it.
Jeff (voice-over): At the immunity challenge, players had a chance to get physical, but Ian broke the rules.
Jeff: No kicking, Ian!
Ian ignores Jeff's warning and continues to kick Tom's blocker.
Jeff: Ian's disqualified! Tom scores! I said no kicking!
Jeff (voice-over): And in the end, Rafe pulled an upset of Terry and won the challenge for his tribe.
Rafe uses his blocker to pop Terry in the stomach, forcing him back. Rafe then uses the blocker to hit Terry in the face, and Terry soon falls in.
Jeff: Terry's down! Fati wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At the neutral camp, Paula was targeted for being weak, and she was voted out of the tribe.
Jeff: ...the seventh person voted out of Survivor: All-Stars II...Paula. I will now check the side pouch for an idol.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Paula played the idol, and Ian was eliminated in a tiebreaker challenge.
Jeff: Ian, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Ian's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): In the aftermath of the idol bounce, Paula and Yau-Man needed to recruit an alliance member, and Harriet was skeptical but receptive.
Yau-Man (to Harriet): You, me, and Paula to the end.
Harriet: Won't I lose to you?
Jeff (voice-over): And Fati reveled in being a joyous tribe.
(confessional) Danni: We're the happiest tribe I've ever seen. Neither tribe I was on in Guatemala was anywhere near this happy. Maybe it's that we're winning.
Jeff (voice-over): But the joy was short-lived as Fati couldnít shoot at the reward challenge.
The camera shows missed shots by Cirie, Danni, and Charlie.
Jeff (voice-over): While Paula led Taíaroa to an easy victory.
Jeff: Paula scores! Ta'aroa wins reward!
Jeff (voice-over): At Fati, Charlie was enjoying a budding relationship with Danni.
Danni: Even out in Guatemala, all I wanted was one person I could trust completely.
Charlie: You sure we should be so open about this?
Danni kisses Charlie on the neck and wraps her arm around him.
Danni: Relax, big guy; we have people begging to be in an alliance with us. We're on top of the world.
(confessional) Charlie: I could be voted out at the next Council, and I would still be on top of the world.
Jeff (voice-over): And others noticed how close they were getting.
Tom: Well, good morning, lovebirds.
Danni: Hey, just trying to stay warm here.
Tom: Was the kiss on the neck just trying to stay warm, too?
Jeff (voice-over): At the immunity challenge, the tribes battled in a bamboo maze, and the underdog Taíaroa pulled off another victory.
Ozzy starts pointing to everyone and issuing commands; soon, the star spins, and the tribe escapes the maze while Fati is still stuck. With Ozzy walking backward, Ta'aroa crosses the finish line.
Jeff: Ta'aroa wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At the neutral camp, Danni and Charlie disagreed on what to tell Maria about the vote.
Danni: It's Rafe.
Charlie: OK. I'll tell Maria--
Danni: No, don't.
Charlie: If she's not told, she won't trust us.
Danni: If she is told, she might pass the idol and then we're split three-three.
Charlie: I'm in charge of making sure she doesn't flip, though.
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie told Maria.
Charlie: So the plan is we vote Rafe.
Maria: Rafe? What?
Charlie: It's simple. You, me, and Danni go to the final three together.
(confessional) Maria: Charlie's had a lot of time to plan this.
Jeff (voice-over): But Maria voted for Danni anyway.
Jeff: ...Three votes Danni. Two votes Rafe.
Jeff (voice-over): However, the Fati alliance was in control, and Maria didnít play her idol, so Rafe was sent packing.
Jeff: Rafe, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Rafe's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): Maria later explained that she threw her vote away, and her explanation satisfied Charlie.
Charlie: Why not vote with us?
Maria: I wanted to keep up the illusion that I am with them.
(confessional) Maria: I threw away my vote, but the way it worked out, I can tell Jonathan that I am with him, and maybe he won't flip over to the other tribe at the merge.
Jeff (voice-over): But it didnít satisfy Danni.
Charlie (to Danni): Maria threw her vote away.
Danni: She voted for me; how can you even think that?
Charlie: I talked to her. She's with us.
Danni: She's given no indication that she's with us. I don't trust Maria one bit.
Jeff (voice-over): At Taíaroa, Terry tried to scale a fish, but he couldnít figure it out. Despite this, he continued, and Paula wasnít happy.
Terry is shown carving chunks of fish out with the scales, leaving the fish Ozzy caught looking disheveled and with little meat.
Paula: OK Terry, you can cut it out now. You're not doing it right at all.
Terry: What the hell are you talking about? I'm doing just fine, and I don't need you distracting me!
Jeff (voice-over): The reward challenge was head-to-head, and Charlie and Terry volunteered to go first.
Jeff: Is there anyone that any of you want a shot at?
Terry: I know exactly who I want a shot at, and I think it's who everyone here wants a shot at.
Charlie: Well, take your shot.
Terry: I'll wipe that sarcastic tone right out of your mouth, Forrest.
Charlie: I'd like to see you try, Deitz. Of course, I'd like to see you face-down crying to your mama, too.
Jeff: I'm guessing we have our first match of the challenge, then.
Charlie: Oh hell, sure.
Terry: You're going down, Forrest.
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie won the first match.
The camera shows Charlie rolling the log faster than Terry could run.
Jeff: Charlie scores! Fati up one-nothing!
Jeff (voice-over): But Terry won the rematch.
Charlie begins moving the log back and forth steadily, but Terry charges the log in the same direction Tom had tried. Charlie loses his footing, and he goes in the water.
Jeff: Terry scores! Ta'aroa on top four-three!
Jeff (voice-over): With Charlie and Terry splitting, their matches, it fell on Danni to win it for Fati, and win she did.
Paula walks onto the log, slips, and loses her balance. She straddles the log.
Danni: OK Paula, we can do this the easy way or the hard way.
Paula leaps up and gets on her hands and feet on the log.
Paula: I pick the hard way, young lady.
Danni: OK then.
Danni spins Paula off the log before she can get her grip back.
Jeff: Danni scores! Fati wins reward!
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward, Charlie and Danni got even closer.
Danni wraps her arm around Charlie's neck and lays her head on his shoulder.
Danni (to Charlie): I'm having an amazing time.
Charlie: Me too.
The screen shows them kissing as it pans back to show a seemingly befuddled Maria looking on at them.
(confessional) Maria: All I can say is thank goodness Charlie kept his clothes on.
Jeff (voice-over): While Jonathan wasnít happy to be there.
The camera shows Jonathan sitting on the ground ignoring the movie.
(confessional) Cirie: Jonathan seemed more concerned that the projector was about to explode or something than about enjoying himself.
Jeff (voice-over): And his bizarre behavior kept up the next day.
Tom (shouting to Jonathan): Hey, come have some of the snacks with us! We saved some for you!
Jonathan doesn't give an obvious response and continues to knock down coconuts with limited success.
(confessional) Cirie: Jonathan's showing some of the strangest behavior I've ever seen. It's like there's five of us here enjoying ourselves, winning as a tribe, and making the most of it out here, and then there's Jonathan, who can't seem to have fun at all.
Jeff (voice-over): At Taíaroa, Harriet got hurt.
Harriet places a coconut on a surface and winds up to chop it; she misses and hits herself in the knee with the machete instead.
Harriet cries out in obvious pain and clutches her knee.
Twila: Son of a bitch, Harriet! Are you OK?
Harriet: Just get me something to stop the bleeding already!
Jeff (voice-over): And Medical advised her not to get her knee wet.
Chase: OK, Harriet, first I'm going to put pressure on your knee, and then I should be able to slow the bleeding down enough for stitches.
Harriet: Can I stay in the game?
Chase: I think so, but I don't want you getting this bandage wet.
Harriet: The tribes are even, Doc. What if the next challenge is in the water?
Chase: If there's any way to stay on land, do it.
Jeff (voice-over): Unfortunately, the immunity challenge was water-based.
Jeff: This challenge does involve diving.
Jeff (voice-over): Harriet stayed dry, and Fati took a big lead.
The camera shows Fati at the shore while Taíaroa is still struggling to row.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Fati used their best rowers early on, and Taíaroa caught up, giving Yau-Man a chance to earn another climactic victory for Taíaroa.
Jeff: We're neck and neck! It might come down to who has the faster torch-bearer!
The tribes arrive at the platforms at almost the same time; Twila hands the torch to Yau-Man, who runs up without stumbling. Charlie takes the torch himself and begins to gain on Yau-Man.
Both flag bearers quietly put the flags in the holders; Yau-Man, in an effort to dodge Paula, leaps over her and appears to soar at the wok. Charlie is still on the ground but just out of reach of the wok as Yau-Man flies toward it.
He reaches his hand out and drops the torch in the general area of the wok.
It falls in, and the wok is set ablaze.
Jeff: Ta'aroa wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): As a bonus, Taíaroa got to steal a member of Fati.
Yau-Man: We're taking Maria back with us.
Jeff (voice-over): At the neutral camp, Jonathan was the only old Taíaroa on Fati, and he was sure his only chance was finding the idol.
Jonathan (from the clue): If you want the idol, you will have to start over soon. What the hell does that mean?
(confessional) Jonathan: I can't figure out what the hell the latest idol clue means, and the other alliance is voting me out here. I really don't know what else I can do.
Jeff (voice-over): Jonathan talked to Tom and tried to get Danni gone.
Jonathan (to Tom): Look, we need to split up Charlie and Danni sooner or later.
Jeff (voice-over): But he spoke in error.
Jonathan: Charlie will get over losing Danni, and frankly, we need to break them up somehow.
Tom: Yeah, but what if Charlie runs over to the other tribe and joins them? I can see that just to get back at us.
Jonathan: He'll still understand that we need to get rid of the previous winners.
(confessional) Jonathan: Oops. That was not the best thing to say around Tom.
Jeff (voice-over): And the tribe voted Jonathan out, making him the first member of the jury.
Jeff: Jonathan, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Jonathan's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): Back at camp, Danni panicked.
(confessional) Danni: I've come to the realization that our entire strategy is dependent on Maria. If she's not with us, we're in big trouble come the merge.
Jeff (voice-over): But she showed that she didnít have a reason to panic.
Danni: I didn't want him to waste his breath by telling us he was playing the idol.
Danni takes a turtle-like object out of her pocket; this object is clearly a hidden immunity idol.
Danni: Because I found it.
Jeff (voice-over): At Taíaroa, Paula recruited a receptive Maria.
Paula (to Maria): You, me, and our alliance to the final six.
Maria: I could do that. Who all do you have as our alliance?
Paula: Ozzy, Yau-Man, and Twila are definitely in.
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward challenge, the tribes had to secure their lockboxes in order to keep the other tribe from retrieving their flag.
The camera shows two structures surrounding the lockboxes; the one Fati built is slightly more impressive.
Jeff (voice-over): Yau-Man tried to light Taíaroaís structure on fire.
Jeff: Yau-Man! What the hell are you doing?
Yau-Man: They're not getting into the structure if it's on fire!
Jeff (voice-over): And Maria helped by burning her tank top and shorts.
Jeff: Maria doing the Full Monty!
Charlie: Hey Maria, light your bikini on fire!
Maria: You wish, tough guy.
Jeff (voice-over): Taíaroa cruised to an easy win with Maria and Yau-Manís ingenuity.
The camera pans back to see Charlie and Tom trying to get through the maze of knots while Terry tosses the flag over to Maria, who runs over to raise it. She spends a few quick seconds hooking it in and sends it up the flagpole.
Jeff: Ta'aroa wins reward!
Jeff (voice-over): Before the reward, Maria had a big decision to make.
Jeff: You have the option of allowing Fati to grab a quick plate and enjoy a few minutes with the Ta'aroa tribe. If you take this, you're going straight back to camp. Or you could stay and enjoy the feast.
Jeff (voice-over): Maria stuck with Taíaroa, and as a result, she joined their tribe.
Jeff: You decided to stay here with Ta'aroa, and so you shall. You are now a member of Ta'aroa. Enjoy.
(confessional) Harriet: Well, we have another member, which is nice, but if we lose, it does me no good, since Maria's kind of with the big shots around here.
Jeff (voice-over): Back with her old tribe, Maria got comfortable.
Paula: So I have to ask, Maria. Why burn your clothes?
Maria: I wanted to win. I wanted to make sure we could win.
Paula: But the bikini stayed.
Maria: Oh, if you insist...
Maria undoes her bikini top and then slides down her bottom. All of Ta'aroa, even the reserved Terry, cheers.
(confessional) Paula: It just isn't Survivor if Maria doesn't get naked.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Maria going to Taíaroa necessitated someone going to Fati, and by random selection, Maria chose Terry.
Jeff: What would you say if I sent you back to Fati right now?
Maria: I would probably cry.
Jeff: I won't be sending anyone to Fati.
The tribe cheers loudly.
Jeff: However, Maria, you will.
The camera shows Terry getting on a boat.
Jeff (voice-over): After a nice reward, Taíaroa took it easy.
Yau-Man (to Paula): So we have the five, right?
Paula: To hell with it. Worry about it tomorrow.
Yau-Man: Well, what about Terry on the other tribe?
Paula: He's on the other tribe, Yau. Now shut up and get busy relaxing.
Jeff (voice-over): While Fati worked hard.
Terry (to Tom): Right now, the other tribe's probably trying to order margaritas and nachos. They're probably coming into the next challenge with their heads in the clouds, and we're coming at them like a ton of bricks.
Jeff (voice-over): And the hard-working Fati tribe cruised to a victory in the immunity challenge.
The camera shows a Fati ball dropping into the end of the maze.
Jeff: Fati wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At the neutral camp, Harriet tried to cut a deal with Paula.
Paula: Maria's a danger, and I have no problem blindsiding her.
Harriet: I'll talk to the others.
(confessional) Harriet: If getting Maria out saves my skin, I'll do it.
Jeff (voice-over): However, despite Paulaís support, Harriet was next to go.
Jeff: Harriet, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Harriet's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): The next day, the tribes met at the neutral camp and learned that they were merging.
Jeff: Congratulations, everyone; you made the merge.
Both tribes discard their old buffs, dropping them at Jeff's feet; they replace the old buffs with new, bold red ones. The buffs are a slightly metallic replica of Xhakum red.
Jeff (voice-over): Danni and Maria were forced to turn in their immunity idols, but they got extra money for the auction for their troubles.
Jeff: Anyone who has one needs to come up here and hand it to me right now.
(confessional) Danni: It's a little like having your car stolen and getting a check from your insurance company for enough money to buy a scooter.
Jeff (voice-over): The Survivors bought their merge feast.
The camera shows Mariaís purchase of pineapple as well as Terryís purchase of a hamburger.
Jeff (voice-over): With an ice cream sundae for two up for bids, Danni and Maria broke out their best tricks to win.
Danni: A thousand sixty between me and Maria.
Charlie begins conferring with Yau-Man. Yau-Man begins to raise a hand to make a bid.
Danni: And we'll both strip naked.
Charlie: I withdraw my bid.
Jeff (voice-over): When the girlsí naughty behavior was too much for Terry, he left the auction.
Terry: I can't deal with this anymore.
Terry gets up, tosses his money on the table, and sets down his hamburger, which is almost all the way eaten, and his empty Pepsi and walks away.
Jeff: OK, we're down to seven in the auction.
Jeff (voice-over): Tom bought a letter from home and gave one to Cirie, his number one ally.
The camera shows Tom and Cirie reading their letters.
Jeff (voice-over): Ozzy bought an advantage for a future immunity challenge.
Jeff: Sold to Ozzy for eight hundred.
Twila: Wait, what was that?
Jeff: An advantage to any future immunity challenge.
Twila: Damn, I could have used that.
Ozzy: You could have outbid me, too.
Jeff (voice-over): After the auction, Yau-Man suggested Maui for the new tribeís name, and it stuck.
Charlie: You guys think of a name yet?
Yau-Man: I thought of Maui.
Charlie: You mean like the Hawaiian island?
Yau-Man: Maui invented cooking.
(confessional) Charlie: And here comes Yau-Man talking about some guy named after a Hawaiian island that invented cooking. What did we do before this island guy, anyway, eat everything raw?
Jeff (voice-over): Ozzy led the merge festivities.
Ozzy: Hey, at least we have a tribe name. Now we can all do what we came here to do.
Charlie: Listen, Oz, it's the day of the merge. I'm not working today.
Ozzy: What work? I meant sitting around and playing drinking games.
(confessional) Charlie: And then Ozzy started speaking my language again. I might be 44, but I do enjoy a good drink.
Jeff (voice-over): At the same time, Paula tried to work with Terry.
The camera shows Paula assisting Terry with the new shelter.
Jeff (voice-over): At the immunity challenge, Ozzy declined to use his immunity advantage, but he didnít appear to need it.
Jeff: If you step down within the next minute, it's yours. If not, the other eight get it.
Charlie: You can't tempt me, Jeff.
Ozzy: I hope they enjoy it.
Jeff: From here on out, there are no more temptations. It's just Charlie against Ozzy, winner takes immunity.
Jeff (voice-over): In the end, after almost four hours, Charlie outlasted Ozzy.
Ozzy's arm jerks suddenly, and his barrel tips over onto him.
Jeff: After all that, Charlie wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): Despite being immune, Charlie knew his alliance was in trouble.
Charlie (to Terry): So Ozzy goes?
Terry: I guess we don't really have a choice.
Charlie: He's the most threatening person on Ta'aroa.
Jeff (voice-over): But it didnít work, as Terry switched sides and Tom went to the jury.
Jeff: Tom, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Tom's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): After the vote, Cirie and Charlie were sure they were about to be picked off.
Charlie: Now we're screwed. We need two people to flip over, or we need a miracle.
Cirie: Try Terry.
Charlie: And then what? Does my shoe suddenly get a vote?
Jeff (voice-over): Danni weaseled her way into an agreement with Ozzy and Paula.
Danni: Final three.
Paula: Is that it?
(confessional) Danni: The plan for me and Paula was to arrange it so Charlie and Ozzy went to the final four with us, and then we figure one of them probably wins immunity.
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward challenge, the tribe learned that their reward meal was based on their finish in the challenge.
Jeff: Everyone will have one chance to toss a spear close to a target. The one whose spear point lands closest to the center wins reward. It's pretty simple. Let me show you what you're playing for.
Jeff takes the cover off a small table; inside is a small coconut husk filled partially with uncooked rice.
Jeff: This is uncooked rice. It will be cooked for dinner tonight.
The tribe is standing and looking at Jeff in bewilderment.
Jeff: Naturally, the winner won't be eating this. This goes to whichever player's throw lands the farthest from the target. The higher your finish is, the better your meal will be.
Jeff (voice-over): Mariaís toss won her the reward and the right to have one person join her, and Charlie quickly asked not to be that person.
Charlie: Pick someone else besides me to eat with you.
Maria: Wait, what?
Charlie: No, really. Just don't go telling people I asked you not to pick me.
(confessional) Maria: I really hadn't planned on picking Charlie, and I didn't plan on telling everyone he asked me not to. I just thought his request was a little odd.
Jeff (voice-over): Maria chose Paula to eat with her, and Twila was the one stuck eating rice.
(confessional) Twila: Sitting at the end of the table in an uncomfortable chair eating rice and drinking camp water while Maria and Paula had steak and lobster was a little hard to take. Really, if it wasn't such a dumb move, I'd toss the both of them aside.
Jeff (voice-over): And Mariaís drunken behavior after the challenge was a shock for some.
(confessional) Paula: Maria was just pitiful after the reward. Here she was talking about making a roof out of coconuts. I think she actually called Cirie 'John' and asked Charlie for his clothes.
Jeff (voice-over): And the next day, Paula confronted her about it.
Maria: You're overreacting, Paula; I just had a few.
Paula: You can't even remember who you had dinner with! I'm really worried about you.
Maria: I'm a grown woman, Paula.
Paula: And sometimes you have the mindset of a teenager.
Jeff (voice-over): Maria apologized for her behavior, but her tribemates ignored it.
Maria (to the tribe): Listen, everyone, I'm sorry about the way I acted last night. I was over the top, and I probably made you a bit uncomfortable. I don't want this to drive a wedge between us.
(confessional) Terry: She said she was sorry. That's fine. I still want her gone.
Jeff (voice-over): Terry got his wish at the immunity challenge, when a rotted beam collapsed, and Maria was taken from the game with a broken leg.
The camera shows Maria carrying puzzle pieces; she falls, crashes through the beam, and lands very awkwardly on her right leg.
Jeff: Maria, are you all right?
Maria (shouting in obvious pain): Do I look like I'm all right?
Jeff: We need medical!
Jeff (voice-over): Upon learning that Maria was out of the game, Charlie was extremely upset.
Charlie: This challenge is too damn dangerous. I want the name of the man who approved it.
Jeff: We ran it in the Cook Islands without incident.
Charlie: I don't give a damn! All it takes is one assh--- to f--- up the design, and we have this!
Jeff: Charlie, I realize you're upset. I know Maria was a friend of yours--
Charlie: Maria's not just a friend of mine, damnit. She was my ally every step of the way out in Japan, and she's a hell of a competitor. For her to lose like this is completely bulls---.
Jeff: Look, I know how you feel--
Charlie: You know jacks--- about how I feel! I lost the same damn way in Japan, and now I know she's out because the people that make these challenges can't be bothered to take f---ing care of the f---ing set! What the hell did they do, put a hollow beam up there? That's f---ing ridiculous! She doesn't weigh that damn much!
Jeff: Please, Charlie, try to calm down.
Charlie (shouting): Don't f---ing tell me to calm down, assh---. I want the name of the guy that made this set, and I want him over here so I can beat the s--- out of--
Paula: Charlie, calm down!
Charlie: Damnit, this has to be done.
Jeff (voice-over): In light of Mariaís evacuation from the game, the tribe worked hard to take their minds off what happened.
(confessional) Danni: After the disaster at the immunity challenge, no one's in the mood to do anything fun, so we're all working.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Terry was enjoying having one fewer competitor.
Cirie (to Paula): Get a load of Deitz over there.
Paula: Tell me about it. I want to kill him.
Cirie: Maria just broke her leg, and all he can think about is stuffing his face.
(confessional) Terry: Everyone's so upset that no one even felt like eating. Frankly, I couldn't be happier that Maria's gone. It's one fewer person I have to beat, and she was annoying anyway.
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward challenge, Terryís strength powered him and Yau-Man to a victory.
Jeff: Yau-Man and Terry win reward!
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward, Terryís selfish attitude angered Yau-Man.
Yau-Man: Hey, what do you say to sneaking some of this back to Paula and Twila?
Terry: Let the poor bastards starve; it's an easy win for us.
Yau-Man: Do you even know what the next challenge is? What if it's something where a full stomach is bad?
Terry: Screw it. Who cares?
(confessional) Yau-Man: At this point, I don't even think Terry's own mother would vote him a million dollars. I wouldn't vote him ten cents.
Jeff (voice-over): And his arrogance angered Cirie, his first opponent in the immunity challenge.
Jeff: First up, we have Cirie against Terry.
Terry: Pfft, too easy.
Jeff (voice-over): And Cirie had a few harsh words when she defeated Terry.
Cirie (to Terry): Too easy, assh---.
Jeff (voice-over): Despite Cirieís desire to win, Ozzy won immunity for the first time.
Jeff: Danni in the water! Ozzy wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At camp, Charlie was a target until he announced that he found the idol.
Twila: Charlie found the idol.
Ozzy: No way.
Twila: We need to vote for Danni.
Ozzy: Fine with me.
(confessional) Twila: Charlie's a little too loud, and he's about to get a shock when his girlfriend's name comes up five times at Tribal tonight.
Jeff (voice-over): And Danniís name came up four times at Tribal Council, enough to vote her out.
Jeff: ...the twelfth person voted out of Survivor: All-Stars II and the fourth member of the jury...Danni.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Danni and Charlie tricked Twila, and she played an idol she already found on herself, and Twila was voted out instead.
Jeff: Twila, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Twila's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): At the ensuing reward, the reward was big.
Jeff: The 2008 Cadillac Escalade goes to whoever wins this challenge. In addition, if you win the car, you win lunch. I'll tell you what's on the menu after the challenge. Trust me, you'll like it.
(confessional) Cirie: A big SUV and lunch at once? They're breaking out an All-Star reward; that's for sure.
Jeff (voice-over): Yau-Man was the last Survivor standing, and he won the car; however, he tried to give it away.
Yau-Man: I will give you this car, but in exchange, if we are both still around at the final four and you win immunity, I want you to give me the necklace.
Jeff: You understand what happened the last time you tried something like that, right, Yau-Man?
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie didnít bite, however.
Charlie: How much is the car worth?
Jeff: Total, with all accessories?
Charlie: Yeah, total.
Jeff: We're looking at seventy-one thousand dollars.
Charlie: And the taxes are paid for?
Jeff: And the taxes are paid for.
The camera focuses in on Charlie contemplating the deal.
Yau-Man is shown with a smile on his face and his hands clenched in anticipation.
Charlie: No deal.
Jeff (voice-over): And Charlie and Paula decided that Yau-Man had to go.
Paula (to Charlie): Yau-Man's tough.
Charlie: Tell me about it.
Paula: I think we need to go all-out and win immunity.
(confessional) Charlie: It got to the point where we decided it was time to say goodbye to Yau-Man. What's to say he doesn't try to make someone else sell their soul to him the way he wanted me to?
Jeff (voice-over): At the immunity challenge, Charlie held up his end of the bargain, and Yau-Man didnít win immunity.
Jeff: Yau-Man overshoots it. Charlie wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At camp, Ozzy wanted to target Danni, but Terry had a vendetta.
Ozzy (to Terry): Danni's next.
Terry: Danni? What about Cirie?
Ozzy: Cirie hasn't found two idols.
Terry: Cirie would also beat any of us except Yau-Man in the final vote.
(confessional) Terry: I have a score to settle with Cirie. Or, more accurately, she has a score to settle with me, and I don't want her to have the chance.
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie and Danni banked on Terry to vote out Yau-Man.
Danni (to Cirie): Can we get four to cut Yau-Man?
Cirie: Terry might do it.
(confessional) Cirie: We need a fourth vote. Yau-Man's our target, Ozzy won't flip, and Paula's close to Yau-Man. Our only hope is Terry.
Jeff (voice-over): And it worked; Terry was the fourth vote to send Yau-Man packing.
Jeff: Yau-Man, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Yau-Man's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): The next day, Ozzy feared for his life in the game.
Paula (to Ozzy): Hey, how's breakfast coming?
Ozzy: It's coming along like it's my only hope.
Jeff (voice-over): And Paula defended herself against charges of voting against Terry.
Paula: Look, Terry's a major problem around here.
Ozzy: I know he is, but when you know how we're voting, and you have two real opportunities to get Danni out, you waste both.
(confessional) Paula: Come on now. It's in my best interests to keep Danni around, just like it is for me to keep Terry around. They might win a challenge, but they're no threat to me.
Jeff (voice-over): At the reward challenge, the Survivors got to compete for time with their loved ones.
The camera shows Charlieís son Derek, Cirieís husband H.B., Danniís brother Drew, Ozzyís mother Gina, and Terryís wife Trish emerging from behind the trees.
Jeff (voice-over): Paula learned that her sister and only requested visitor was in the hospital and couldnít come.
Jeff (sighing first): Lynn is in the hospital. She was in a car accident. She's in stable condition, but she injured her left arm and couldn't be out here.
Jeff (voice-over): And she was shocked by a visit from her step-dad, with whom she was not on speaking terms.
Derek: Paula hasn't spoken to her step-dad since just after her mom died. They had a pretty big fight, and they just decided they weren't going to see each other anymore.
Jeff: Wait, Derek, are you telling the truth?
Paula (still sobbing): He's telling the truth, Jeff.
Jeff (voice-over): Jim, Paulaís step-dad, explained the situation.
Jim: There was a large sum of cash that Paula's mother had left to her family when she died. I wanted a third, and Paula and her sister could each have a third. Paula said she deserved more because she had four kids to raise. We never found a figure we were both happy with, and ultimately, she never took any of the money. After some name-calling and object-throwing, we decided it was best if we didn't talk for a while.
Jeff (voice-over): Paula forgave Jim, though, and agreed to let him stay.
Jeff: At this point, there are only two things we can do. The two of you can compete with everyone else, and if you win, you have plenty of time to talk about it, or we can send Jim home now, you can sit out of the challenge, and what you do after that is in your hands.
Paula: Oh, what the hell.
Jeff (voice-over): Despite Paulaís desire to compete, it was Charlie who won the family visit.
The camera shows Derek in front of a lighting torch.
Jeff: Charlie and Derek win reward!
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie chose to give Danni a visit from her brother, and Derek gave Paula a chance to talk to Jim.
The camera shows Derek, Drew, and Jim leaving with the Survivors.
Jeff (voice-over): When Jim got to camp, he and Paula picked up where they left off.
Ozzy: So wait, Jim, how long have you been in Paula's life?
Jim: Paula was 10 when I married her mother, and I was 41. I don't think she ever got used to having a step-dad who was eight years older than her mom was.
Paula: Oh sure, that's what I told you just to scare the hell out of you when Mom brought you home.
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie and Derek enjoyed dinner and pool at an island house.
Charlie: That ball's going right in here.
Derek: I bet it is.
Charlie aims in such a way that the ball bounces off the rail, crosses the table, bounces off the other rail, and backspins into the pocket that Charlie called.
Derek: Holy hell, Dad. I never had a chance.
Jeff (voice-over): Charlie learned the true value of his win.
(confessional) Charlie: There were four week-long trips and a couple of bonus trips. I got one trip to Japan, one to Brazil, one to Australia, and one to Panama. And they threw in a few added bonuses, like a week-long cruise and a couple of short stays in the south Pacific.
Jeff (voice-over): And Derek revealed how he felt about Danni.
Derek: Lemme tell you something, Dad. That Danni is a fine woman. The fact that you've been out here for a month and haven't made a move on her means either you're a stronger man than I am or--
Charlie: Yeah, yeah, yeah, make fun of your old man for not getting a date in eleven years.
Jeff (voice-over): After his son left, Charlie dropped a bombshell.
(confessional) Charlie: The whole thing between me and Danni is an act. We're both just pretending to be a couple.
Jeff (voice-over): And then he dropped another bombshell.
(confessional) Charlie: The other part of the act is that I was just pretending about my dates with Paula being a failure. We're very much in love.
Jeff (voice-over): At the immunity challenge, four Survivors hung on for life.
The camera shows Charlie, Danni, Ozzy, and Paula on their totem poles hanging on.
Jeff (voice-over): But when Charlieís bad hand gave out, Ozzy won his second immunity challenge.
Charlie: Damn, my hand--
Charlie releases with his left hand, falls down the pole, and lands on the ground.
Jeff: Charlie gave out; Ozzy wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At camp, Charlie wanted to target Cirie.
Charlie (to Danni): Cirie or Terry?
Danni: Terry isn't beating anyone.
Charlie: Cirie then?
Danni: Sounds good.
(confessional) Charlie: Since the beginning of the game, I was in an alliance with Cirie, but it comes to that time where she's no longer useful.
Jeff (voice-over): But Paula wanted Terry gone.
Paula (to Ozzy): Hey, you don't want to go against Terry, do you?
Ozzy: I was planning on voting out Charlie, to be honest. Isn't that the logical move? He'll kill all of us in the final vote.
Paula: Charlie won't reach the final vote. We can cut him loose later. Terry's a danger.
Jeff (voice-over): Tribal Council saw Terry taking a lot of heat.
Terry: I know Paula's talking about me; she always says I don't pull my weight around camp.
Paula: You did at first, but you stopped. I can't figure that out.
Terry: I resent that.
Paula: You resent everything. I tried to bond with you earlier, and all you do is act like a total weirdo. It's like it's not even worth it to try to be friends with you.
Danni: Terry can be a very hard person to live with. He thinks he knows everything, and he won't listen to anything other than what he believes he already knows.
Charlie: Damnit, my English bulldog listens better than you do, Deitz. Get your head in the game, let things go, and try to have some fun out here. What's the problem, Deitz? You're not winning? You don't have Aras to poke fun at anymore? What the hell's your deal?
Ozzy: It's as clear as day that Terry's not exactly Mr. Popularity out here.
Jeff: Terry, are you aware of this?
Terry: People say that to me all the time, sure. Terry, you're hard to relate to. Terry, you're lazy. Terry, you're bossy. Terry, I don't like your political views.
Jeff (voice-over): Terryís unpopularity caught up with him, and he was voted out.
Jeff: Terry, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Terry's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): Back at camp, Charlie, Cirie, Danni, and Paula sealed Ozzyís fate.
Danni (to Cirie): If Ozzy doesn't win immunity, he's gone.
Cirie: Tell me something I don't know.
Jeff (voice-over): And after wild speculation about the final rewardÖ
Paula: So what could be bigger than the car?
Charlie: I got some vacations, but there's no way those are worth as much as the car.
Danni: Maybe it's a house or something.
Jeff (voice-over): Öthe players learned that they were competing for the biggest reward ever.
Jeff: It's another 2008 Cadillac Escalade just like Yau-Man's. But this one's different. Instead of keeping this car, you will trade it in after four years and get a new GM car every four years for the rest of your life. It's a lease that lasts as long as you're alive.
Jeff (voice-over): Cirie and Ozzy were out quickly, and Charlie, Danni, and Paula were faced with eating fafaru for the reward.
Paula: I'd rather walk everywhere than eat that.
Jeff (voice-over): And, with a perfect score on the last part of the challenge, Danni won the car lease.
Danni's shot rips down the middle of the silver target.
Jeff: With that shot, Danni wins reward.
Jeff (voice-over): Danni picked Charlie to join her on the reward, a night on a yacht, but she got paranoid and tried to learn where Charlie stood.
Danni (to the waiter): Another Budweiser, please.
Charlie (a little buzzed): Hey, I'm good. No more.
Danni: Oh, come on, Charlie; it's good for you. Just like old times.
Charlie: What old times?
Danni (forcefully): Listen to me. You're going to drink this beer. I went to the trouble of getting it for you.
Charlie: OK, come on already.
(confesional) Danni: I wanted him drunk. I wanted him to spill his game plan. And if he was keeping Cirie over me, he and Paula were history.
Jeff (voice-over): And she tortured him into revealing his hand, and when she didnít get an answer she liked, she went on the offensive.
Danni: I need to know if I'm in your final three or if Cirie is.
Charlie: What? What kind of stupid question is that?
Danni: Answer me.
Charlie: I don't...damn, my head hurts.
Danni (angrily): I said answer me, damn you!
Charlie: I need to lie down. I don't want to talk about this. I'll tell you about it in the morning.
(confessional) Danni: I didn't like Charlie's answer. It wasn't definitive for me. And frankly, I think Paula's on the beach now plotting to stab me in the back. I'm doing something about this. Mark my words.
Jeff (voice-over): And when Charlie woke up, Danni had a shock for him.
Charlie: Oh God. Tell me we didn't do it. I seriously hope we didn't have sex.
Danni: Well, I was in the bathroom this morning getting ready. The evidence of our activities last night is pretty overwhelming.
Jeff (voice-over): Convinced that he and Danni had sex on the yacht, Charlie avoided Danni and everyone else around camp.
Cirie: Danni's acting really weird, and so is Charlie. They don't need to be in the final three.
Ozzy: Fine by me; it gets me farther in the game. Are you in?
Cirie: Hell yes.
Jeff (voice-over): And Danni told Paula everything.
Danni: Well, OK. Charlie and I had a few too many on the yacht.
Paula: Uh-huh. Go on.
Danni: And when we got back to the room...
There is a look of apparent concern on Paula's face.
Danni: ...we had sex.
(confessional) Paula: Oh, hell no. Hell f---ing no, Danni. If I didn't stand to make a million dollars off this game, I would have punched her teeth out right there.
Jeff (voice-over): With an angry Paula, Charlie knew he had to win immunity, but at the challenge, Ozzy used his immunity advantage.
Jeff: Ozzy, your set of keys is color-coded to match the paint on the locks. Everyone else is not so lucky.
Jeff (voice-over): Ozzy used his advantage to coast to an easy win.
Ozzy reaches for his flag, grabs it, and raises it.
Jeff: Ozzy wins immunity!
Jeff (voice-over): At camp, Charlie put Danniís story together and discovered she lied to him.
Cirie: That girl is just too damn greedy, trying all this fake couple stuff, getting you wasted, claiming it "just happened" and then washing her hands of you when she's this far in the game.
Charlie: I'd like to wash her mouth out.
Cirie: Me too. Do we still have any soap?
(confessional) Charlie: And for some reason, that one word "soap" just set off my memory. Danni just stuffed a condom full of soap and used it as evidence that we had sex. I should have known. Danni's a liar and a dirty bitch, and I am making it my mission to take her down.
Jeff (voice-over): However, Paula didnít believe him.
Charlie: Danni's lying.
Paula: Why the hell should I believe you, and why the hell should I give a damn?
Charlie: Look, I admit I got a little drunk, but that was her pushing me to do so, and--
Paula (shouting): You're a grown man, Charlie! Take some responsibility for your actions! Just man up and admit you had sex with her! I'm sick of looking at you and knowing that you lied to me like this!
Jeff (voice-over): And Danni stuck to her guns.
Jeff: Straight up, did you have sex with Charlie on the yacht?
Danni (after a pause): Yes.
Jeff (voice-over): And Charlie became the next person voted out.
Jeff: Charlie, the tribe has spoken.
Jeff snuffs Charlie's torch.
Jeff (voice-over): Only four remain. One person will win one million dollars and the title of Sole Survivor. Who will it be? Find out tonight.
The camera shows a quick overview of the Gambiers as the Survivor theme begins to play. The first sequence appears to be out of the Japan opening spliced with the Vanuatu opening; a cannon appears in the background, and the music appears to be an amalgamation of the past seven themes with some imagery from each. Player intros are given in alphabetical order by tribe, with Fati going first and Ta'aroa going second. All screen shots of players in this intro are from the first episode, and all are wearing their tribes' buffs. As the intro comes to a close, images of the last seven settings centered around a pirate ship appear to fade as the Survivor: All-Stars II logo is superimposed over the center of the screen. The logo appears similar to the first All-Stars logo except it reads "All-Stars II" and the dominant background color is a bold red instead of blue. The green from the old All-Stars logo is replaced with a dark blue, and the text is silver.
At this point, the screen cuts to commercial.
