A seemingly harmless cut on his leg spelled the end of Neal’s time on the island in Survivor: Kaoh Rong Episode 7, as medical pulled him from the game.
For the challenge, they will use poles to transport one person across to the other side. Reward is ice cream. Julia chooses Nick, Debbie, Scot, and Tai. Aubry chooses Cydney, Michele, Joe, and Jason. Julia and Aubry are the ones walking across the poles. Julia goes slow and steady as Aubry keeps falling in the water. Michele takes over for Aubry and has no more success, and Cydney faces the same fate. Julia makes it across without falling, and her team joins her on the platform. Aubry blames her team and by extension herself for picking them, but her contribution didn’t exactly help.
Scot and Jason are worried about an all girl alliance, so they want to make sure one of the women goes next. When the others return, Nick approaches Julia to confirm, which Cydney sees and gets suspicious. She goes up to Jason, who plays dumb, not exactly a stretch, but Cydney isn’t buying it.
For the immunity challenge, they will balance on a perch while holding a handle above their heads. After 5 minutes, Jeff has a temptation, the only one he will be offering. Julia can’t even wait for him to get back with the food. Jason, Scot, Joe, and Michele take the food. Tai says he doesn’t want any of the Brains to win. Then Debbie steps down, and Aubry follows. As soon as he sees the Brains are done, Nick gives up as well. Tai has been struggling almost since the beginning, but he has refused to give up. After 40 minutes, Cydney, who seemed solid throughout, finally steps down. Tai wins immunity.
The plan is to split the votes between Debbie and Aubry with Debbie as the target. Nick tells Aubry the plan and suggests she vote for Debbie while also acknowledging he’s being arrogant.
Cydney, who denied the existence of a female alliance, has a different plan. She wants to form a female alliance and get rid of Nick. Of course Debbie and Aubry support this idea, but the question is which way Julia and Michele will go.
Tai reveals at Tribal Council that there is potentially a super idol in the game. This is all news to Julia, which begs the question why she’s so out of the loop in this large alliance of seven.
With 5 votes, Nick has been voted off the island. His arrogance got the best of him. The seemingly random Jason vote came from Tai, and that was not something anyone had discussed, though there are those who would certainly like to see Jason go away.
