Survivor fans ready? Ten are left. Who will be voted out tonight?
Mike feels as left out as ever -- he voted the way he should, didn't know Desi would be going home. He's decided that he needs to throw shade on the Healers to stay in the game longer.
Lauren will have two votes at the next Tribal Council. The others don't seem to realize a vote was missing. Ben is the only one who knows about her advantage.
Oops. Ryan tells Devon he has an idol. He thinks he really had to tell him because "Devon will never tell anybody."
Time for the Rewards Challenge -- two teams, swim out, retrieve keys, score baskets. Luxury yacht touring the Fijian Islands with alcohol and food. They drew for teams.
Mike, Joe, JP, Chrissy and Cole win. Joe, as much as I dislike him, did fantastic making the baskets.
Oh geez. Now Ryan tells Ben about his idol. He thinks truth is power in the game. Ben is thrilled because now he knows Cole doesn't have the idol. He wants to stick with the seven, which includes Ryan at this time, but will be wary that Ryan is determined to win.
No one seemed to find a clue during the reward cruise. And Joe is still searching for another idol. He knows he's a target. He continues to offend Ashley and Chrissy. The way to win friends and influence people, huh? He told them they're the perfect goats and he's not there to make friends. Well, the latter is pretty obvious, I'd say.
Ben wants to work with Devon. He wants his trust. He tells Devon that Ryan has an idol. Devon thought he was the only one Ryan told (because Ryan told him that). Now he wants to work with Ben and not so much with Ryan.
Immunity Challenge time! Bars resting on their shoulders forcing them into a squatting position. Go too low or too high and the urn will pop off, put out a fire and they're out. Jeff refers to it as a new Survivor torture device.
Ashley out first. Mike out. JP out. Deon, then Joe out. Ben out. Chrissy out. Ryan out. It's down to Cole and Lauren. Cole out!
Lauren wins Immunity!
Ben thinks they need to vote four Cole, three Mike. But Ashley wants Joe out. They want to do the split in case of an idol. Ashley wants to convince others that they need to vote Joe out. It seems that most of the seven think Joe rather than Cole or Mike.
Tribal Council has Probsting questions -- Joe admits the Healers are the targets. Joe, Mike and Cole are all in danger. Mike whispered to Joe to trust him in the beginning. Um. Well. Then he goes on about Joe being their pariah and they're showing poor moral character. Mike claims it's not just numbers, but relationships building a "new society."
Ben tells Mike he's safe. But Mike doesn't trust him. He's planning on playing his idol ... and maybe not for himself. Even Chrissy wants Joe out. Ben doesn't see himself as a dictator or steamrolling the others. But he sort of kind of is if you ask them!
The tally ...
Mike plays his idol for himself.
Ben, Mike, Mike, Cole, Cole, Cole, Cole, Cole.
Cole is out.
