Survivor fans ready?
The show opens with Jeff Probst calling the castaways in. He announces the loved ones visit. Tears and drama to go down with each. @@
Okay, to the challenge, they're drawing for pairs. Reward in the form of love. Obstacles, digging to get underneath log,
Time for the Immunity Challenge. Stand on a small block of wood stabilizing a ball on a block of wood. Drop the ball and you're out. It's the one where they have two handles.
Dean out, Tommy out, Noura out, Janet drops, Karishma out. Dan drops. It's down to Lauren and Elaine. ELAINE drops unexpectedly!
LAUREN WINS IMMUNITY!
The plan is to put four votes on Karishma, three on Janet (in case Karisma has another idol). Meanwhile the four that had stayed at camp decide they can control the vote if all four stick together. They're thinking Tommy. Sure enough, Noura is overthinking everything.
Tribal Council time. Starting off with the loved ones visit and how it affects those left back at camp. Lots of whispering going on. Noura calls out Dean, Elaine and Karishma … yikes! She tells all including Elaine's idol! She ends up caught in a lie and will we see the end of Noura tonight? Hmm.
The tally … Elaine plays her idol to save herself.
Karishma, Noura, Noura, Noura, Karishma, Karishma, Karishma, Karishma ...
Welp, they got Karishma out and Noura showed her true colors putting a huge target on her back.
