Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 9

Chris managed to get himself a hidden immunity idol during his visit to Ghost Island in Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 8, but despite knowing he was one of the primary targets, refused to play it and thus was eliminated.

She may have only had a couple of people after her last time, but this is the third time in a row that Libby has gone to Tribal and received votes.

Laurel is supposed to be in the final four with Domenick and Wendell (with Donathan), yet both are keeping secrets about the advantages they have. She tells Wendell she’s 1000% with them. Apparently the extra 0 makes it better. In reality, she’s getting sketched out by the secrets and power they have.

For the reward challenge, they will hit targets with giant slingshots. Reward is a trip to the Survivor taco hut. Domenick, Kellyn, Jenna, Sebastian, Desiree, and Michael (orange) are against Angela, Laurel, Wendell, Libby, Chelsea, and Donathan (purple). Purple takes the lead 1-0. Then it’s tied. Purple retakes the lead. After a lot of misses from both sides, it’s tied again. Both teams adopt the strategy of letting the useless people shoot once before before replacing them. Purple (Wendell) makes it 3-2, and Laurel extends the lead to 4-2. Orange makes it 4-3 before Wendell scores again. Domenick/Michael make it 5-4. Purple wins reward.

And now we return to this rock drawing nonsense. Jenna is going to Ghost Island. She will not be playing a game today, though.

Libby asks her reward partners what she’s doing wrong, and the response is that it’s probably her relationship with Michael.

Back at camp, Angela wants to start a war. No need to pick sides. Just pit everybody against everybody else other than her.

The immunity challenge is a gross eating challenge. Michael, Desiree, and Laurel advance on the fish eyes. In the next heat of six, Wendell refuses to even try, while Angela, Sebastian, and Domenick advance. Michael, Sebastian, and Angela advance on the live grubs. Michael and Angela finish the sea slugs to move to the finals. Angela finishes the mother of pearl first to win immunity.

Michael’s name came up in the drama Angela was causing, which leads to people to tell Laurel that there’s already a consensus that she should agree to support.

Michael wants to be Malolo strong and hope Naviti splits the votes. His target is Wendell. Donathan’s nervous about Naviti being too strong but also worried that he’ll be on the wrong side of the numbers if he goes against them.

Michael plays his idol.

With 3 votes, Libby has been voted off the island. Michael played that right, but rather than picking off a number from the other side, his tribemates still ensured that one of their own went home. Michael was of course the only vote for Wendell, while Donathan flipped on Michael, but Desiree finally got her wish of getting rid of Libby.
