Survivor fans ready?
Jeremy's worried because Spencer flipped the vote. Could he be next? Kimmi tries for an all girl alliance voting out Joe, then the guys all in a row. Hmm. An all girl alliance? I wonder why no one has ever come up with that before?
Reward Challenge time! Jeff asks Probsting questions about family, then mentions the inevitable loved ones visit. Yep, it's that time again. Then the loved ones arrive one by one. Jeremy gets the news that he's going to have a son, but doesn't share that news with the others.
They have to race to collect bags in sand, spin, get dizzy, balance beam, solve puzzle. The winner gets a barbecue with their loved one.
Kelley wins. She has to pick three others to go with her. Keith, Abi and Kimmi. She can choose one more. Joe, because the reward meant so much to him.
The three not participating -- Spencer, Jeremy and Tasha -- decide to be a final three. Tasha thinks she has good options for staying. She has that three and the girls alliance. Once again, Joe is a target despite the reprieve last week.
Immunity is back up for grabs! They have to balance wooden statues on a pole. At intervals, the poles will be lengthened. Two get immunity -- one man, one woman. They have to add the sections onto the poles while still balancing the statues.
Kimmi is first out. Abi out. Tasha out. Kelley wins immunity!
Spencer and Jeremy out. Keith and Joe are up to 16 feet of pole. Uh-oh! Joe collapses! Keith wins, but Joe's out cold. Yikes!
The medics say it was low blood sugar. Joe said his legs went out. He says he wants to play the game as hard as he can. He's not in danger of being pulled from the game. That's good. But he's still the target.
Abi is gleeful that Joe lost to a 52 year-old man. He seems to be more of the target than ever. At least, of Abi and Kelley. Joe works on Jeremy with his thoughts that Abi is the most dangerous to get to the end as everyone wants to sit with her as she'd never win.
Tasha tells Jeremy and Spencer about the all girls alliance. She didn't want them to hear it from someone else. Tasha still really wants Joe out.
Tribal council time -- Abi and Joe are both worried about their futures and talk against each other. Abi votes Joe because he's "moldy" and looks like a clown.
Joe, Abi, Tasha, Joe, Joe, Joe.
Joe is voted out. The women are thrilled, Spencer and Jeremy not so much.
