Jenny talked herself right out of the game in Survivor: Kaoh Rong Episode 2, managing to lose the trust of both sides of the tribe by trying to play everyone.
Scot justifies his vote by saying that he promised Jenny he wasn’t going to vote for her.
Tai tried climbing a tree for an idol previously, scraping his chest and making his feet bleed in the process. This time, his plan is to make a tool by tying sticks together. A much safer plan, which works.
It doesn’t end there. There’s a twist. This never ends well. Two idols can form a super idol, which can be played after the votes have been read. This essentially destroys the strategy of whether to play an idol or not, other than it might make someone think twice about playing it in hopes of waiting for another. As if finding two idols is hard.
The Brains seemed to be going after the old people, but Liz and Peter are also thinking that Aubry and Neal are bigger threats. For her part, Debbie wants to get rid of Liz.
Tai starts crying as they kill the chicken. Nick is exactly the opposite, not caring at all. Two extreme sides to the same coin.
Anna approaches Caleb with an offer. She’s going to stick together with the girls. Would he like to join? Okay, so are you sticking with the girls, or do you want to be Caleb’s ally? Whatever the answer to that question, her motivation is to get rid of Nick.
Alecia finds a clue to the hidden immunity idol and calls Cydney over to read it with her. Little does she know that Cydney just got done saying that she shouldn’t trust her at all. While they’re digging, Jason sees them. Proving that Alecia just made a stupid decision, Cydney finds the box with the idol locked inside and sends Alecia away so that she can try to get it. Then Cydney tells the guys because she knows Jason already knows something is up.
Now everybody is on the hunt. Jason finds the clue with a map and runs away and begins to fashion a tool to reach the key. Scot knocks the key loose, and Jason grabs it after shoving Alecia aside.
Alecia says that she can’t trust anyone on her tribe. Ya think?
For the immunity challenge, they will retrieve three bags of rice, maneuver them through a hole, cross a balance beam, open the bags, and use the balls hidden inside to get through a maze. Reward is a choice between comfort or emotional items. Anna and Michele sit out for Beauty; Aubry and Joe sit out for Brains.
Beauty gets off to a bit of a lead on the hole, but it’s all about the maze this week. After a strong start, Beauty is dominating the maze as well. Beauty wins immunity without difficulty. Cydney proves completely useless on the maze the first time, so she switches out with Jason. Then Scot scores after Jason. Rather than giving Alecia a shot, they put Cydney back in, and by a few seconds, she comes out ahead of Debbie. Beauty picks comfort, leaving the emotional items for Brawn.
Peter and Liz are happy to lose. They want to get rid of Neal anyway. Liz tells Debbie they’re splitting the votes and to vote for Neal. Debbie tells Neal.
Peter and Liz are talking like they are masterminds, and they really need to be knocked down a few pegs so that perhaps their minds will be in closer relation to their abilities.
At Tribal Council, Peter reveals why he can trust Joe. He’s a cop. A cop wouldn’t lie, right? Not like Tony, who was also a police officer, and lying winner of the previous Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty.
They do split the vote after all, just not in the way Liz and Peter had planned. The tie leads to a revote, and nobody likes either of the two targets. Aubry thinks Peter is the bigger danger, but Debbie made it very clear during her voting that she is making a personal decision. Even if she is being just unnecessarily mean about both Peter and Liz, she has a clear target between the two.
With 2 votes, Liz has been voted off the island.
