Survivor: The Australian Outback Episode 7

Survivor: The Australian Outback Episode 6 saw the departure of Michael after he passed out and fell into the fire.

Unlike what they do nowadays, they’re not even trying to keep it a mystery. The merge is coming, and they will be going into it at 5 members each.

Everybody on Kucha agrees they need to stick together, and they have no plans to turn on each other until it becomes necessary. They want to find a weak link that can flip on the other tribe. Their plan is to target Keith or Amber. There’s a problem, though. Kimmi and Debb are coming back to haunt them again. Debb voted against Jeff at the first tribal council, and Kimmi told Ogakor about it, which in the event of a tie would work against Kucha. Unlike Kucha, which is guessing who has past votes, Ogakor knows for sure Jeff has at least 1.

Ogakor remains in the dark. They assume that whoever’s been evacuated is gone, but they don’t know who it is or what happened. After much speculation, they finally get treemail (yet no information). It’s boys’ night out. Colby and Keith will be headed over to Kucha to scout it. Meanwhile, Kucha is getting girls’ night out, allowing Elisabeth and Alicia to check out Ogakor’s camp (they’ll have to forego their last chicken, in favor of white rice).

Kucha would like to get rid of Jerri as one of its first targets. If they do vote for her or Keith, that would give them the advantage.

While all of Kucha wants to live at Kucha beach, Colby’s keeping an open mind.

When the girls arrive at Ogakor, they’re able to finally shed some light on what happened with Mike, who they have been told will be okay.

Over on Kucha, their boys are surprised it’s a sausagefest. They were expecting a girls’ night out from the other tribe. Keith and Colby, also, are disappointed to find out that they’re not getting a meal from the girls. However, they do get to eat some chicken with spices.

When Keith left, he might have thought to check his pocket. He took his tribe’s only matches with him. Jerri will need to bite her tongue and not talk badly about him.

Jerri will serve up tortillas and tomatoes. They don’t have much more to offer, but they’re doing what they can. Either way, they’re going to talk about food all day long.

In addition to all the food, Kucha has so much firewood they don’t even worry about it, and they have a kitchen and a bunch of other things. Jerri and Amber are looking forward to leaving Ogakor beach behind.

Guess what: they’re going to have to start from scratch. They can take whatever they can carry, but it is a new site untouched by either tribe. The good news is that, since they’ve made it to the merger, they’re given a box full of food. Nick was hoping to try to be equal, but he’s not going to get his hand eaten by one of the women.

Jeff sees the other tribe go off within 15 minutes. He assumes they’re strategizing.

Rodger would like to build the hut up in the trees, but the girls would like to go in the sand. Colby’s just going to do whatever everybody else wants to as to not ruffle any feathers. With that said, they build in the sand.

Now that they’re a new tribe, they need a new name: Barramundi.

The immunity challenge is called the perch. They will stand on pillars. This could be a while. After an hour and a half, Nick hops in. He’s getting dizzy, so he’d rather just rest if he doesn’t think he can win. Colby jumps in next. That was… odd. He hopes to draw attention toward himself and away from Keith and Jerri. At 4 hours, Jeff brings out peanutbutter and chocolate. Elisabeth is going crazy. After she yells Colby’s name, Probst gets an idea, which is to give Nick and Colby some food. Rodger has decided to bail so he can have the rest. After some debate, Jeff jumps in as well, feeling he won’t be able to outlast the women anyway. At 6 hours, 47 minutes, Probst returns. He’s got ice cream and hot fudge. Amber and Jerri both jump in before he can even finish his sentence. For Amber, that works because she’s safe (unless she gets put up against someone who also has 0 votes), but Jerri’s neck is on the line since she has votes against her. At 8 hours, 23 minutes, Jeff returns to a shivering Elisabeth, who wants to negotiate, as she’s in the worst shape. Half an hour later, Probst returns with a boat to get her and bring her back to shore without getting wet. At 10 hours, 17 minutes, Probst returns again with an offer of hot coffee or hot chocolate and a boat ride in. Alicia accepts. Immediately after, before Alicia’s even out of earshot, Keith turns to Tina and says he needs it. She agrees, knowing that she has to take one for the tribe. Keith wins immunity. Now they just have to convince the other tribe to not vote for Jerri.

The day’s not over yet. They still have to go to tribal council, so hopefully they’ve gotten all their plotting in before that. Tina and Keith are open about the fact that she gave him the win and why. Colby plans to vote based on a move determined the first week they were there. It’s obvious they remember Kimmi’s words well.
