  • Episode Description
  • Nakum is awaken by a howler monkey, foreshadowing a tough day in the jungle. At the Reward Challenge, the monkey's screeches are forgotten as Nakum takes home some comfort in the form of blankets and other luxuries. The losing Yaxha makes the trek back home and tries to find some protein in termites while Nakum tribe members Bobby Jon and Judd begin to get annoyed at Margaret's assumed leadership position. The 114 degree heat takes its toll on everyone at the close Immunity Challenge, which grants safety for the Nakum tribe, a sprained ankle for Amy, and the fourth defeat in a row for Yaxha. Trying to find a way to better the tribe, the Yaxha players unanimously vote to eliminate Brianna.moreless

    • Jamie: (Casting a vote for Brianna) You're a girly-girl. Go back to the shopping mall and get out of the jungle.

    • Lydia: Well, Jeff, I sucked today.

    • Amy: My ankle would have to be falling off for me to quit.

    • Stephenie: I'm frustrated because we have Amy, who has all the strength in the world, but she can't run, and we have Brianna, who's a makeup artist. After the first round, she was like this, her head completley up her butt, I have to literally pull it out, and we have a fishmonger. Part of me just wishes, why, just once, can't I have a great tribe?

    • Margaret: It's supposed to be a lean. It looks like we got a circus big top for a shelter. Am I impressed? No answer.

    Trivia (1)

    • Survivor: Guatemala is the first season to have the first three players voted off "unanimously." Jim Lynch was voted off 8-1 (the one vote was his; for Margaret Bobonich), Morgan McDevitt was voted off 8-1 (the one vote was hers; for Lydia Morales), and Brianna Varela was voted off 7-1 (the one vote was hers; also for Lydia). The Guatemala series went on to have nine unanimous votes out of a possible fifteen; a record with the second highest total being six apiece from the Thailand and All-Stars series. The lowest number was the Borneo series, in which only one player, Sean, was voted off unanimously.
