Survivor fans ready?
Debbie is thrilled to be back with her "buddies" and tells us she won't tell them about what really happened on Exile. Tai is nervous because he threw out Ozzy's name. He has two idols, though. Varner is ticked and knows he could very well be blindsided. Zeke tries to bond with him a bit and promises he won't lie to him again.
Reward Challenge time -- unspool ropes, release key, build ladder, climb, go through net, five targets with a ball. Playing for Surivor pizza - ten different kinds. Soft drinks, too. Nuku wins Reward!
Mana is all crying over lost pizza, lost dreams and how hard it actually is to be on the show. We're talking even Brad. Aubry thinks Brad is the most genuine person on the tribe. Now all love Brad it seems. If he gets cocky, he might fall, I say.
Over on Nuku, Jeff wants to target Ozzy. He feels Ozzy is too dangerous to keep in the game because he could win it all. He talks to Sarah about it and she seems to seriously considering making a big move. Hmm.
Time for the Immunity Challenge -- 4 swim out to rafts, collect buoys, solve puzzle. Mana wins Immunity!
Uo-oh -- they seem to be liking Varner. The biggest question is how long Ozzy might stick with them and will it be better for the tribe? Hmm. Jeff tells Sarah and Andrea he thinks Zeke is working with Ozzy more than them and starts throwing shade Zeke's way.
Tribal Council time. Jeff says he's sure he's going home tonight. He tells them that Ozzy and Zeke have a secret alliance and pushes them all to vote out Ozzy. He also asks Zeke why he hasn't told anyone he's transgender. He might have blown his Ozzy target right there as all fall in to defend Zeke. Now that he outed Zeke to the world, Jeff Varner is crying. It's a tear-jerker for many.
Zeke said he didn't reveal it because he didn't really want to be known as the trans Survivor -- he wanted to be known for himself.
Jeff went home without even a vote being taken. They all agreed he had to go. Even Jeff agreed at that point.
Next week is the merge.
