She picks Cirie and Natalie to go with them on the trip. After the challenge, the medical team checks James's finger again. Medical decides that James must leave the game to go to the hospital. Meanwhile, on Exile Island, Amanda finds all 3 clues and discovers that the hidden immunity idol is hidden back at Dabu camp.

  • It continues to get more incredible by the episode! Unbelievable!

    Wow - just wow! Another incredible one! I was so saddened to have James leave through a medical injury. It was so sad to see him go, but hopefully he will at least not have any lasting health issues. Seeing him walk into Tribal with the IV Drop wa s just heartbreaking...

    Meanwhile, in the rest of the game, the Reward Challenge was hilarious, with the voodoo dolls of everybody! Especially Parvati's and Erik's were hilarious! And James's too!

    The reward was really cool! Swimming with the non-stinging jellyfish was just amazing!

    Amanda's Exile searching was interesting to watch, and I was stunned that the clue to ld her to dig for the idol underneath the tribal flag! That was a shocker! But it worked perfectly ofor her, as she showed everybody that she doesn't havee the iodol, and yet she still found it! Amazing stuff!

    Parvati and Amanda are just so crafty and awesome to watch! As are all of these five girls! I loved Alexis, and she semed to be the nicest of these girls, so I was saddened to see her go, but it was just an amazing blindside, and Jeff's comment about the trieb perfecting the art of blindside was spot on!

    I can't wait too see what happens next! This season is beynd incredible!moreless
  • Alexis goes out in a stunning way...

    The girls organise to vote for James or Erik. But they need to beat them in the Immunity Challenge. And this they seem they can't do - with Erik winning (realising that his being on the island relies on it). Then James leaves the show - injured. Which in one way is a good thing - because James doesn't have the manipulation power of the girls to stay in the game anyway. The girls realise one of them may have to leave. Amanda realises her head is on the chopping block and kicks into high gear - in trying to find the immunity idol. At Tribal Council, Amanda portrays a sad figure about to be voted out. But then she brings out the idol at the crucial moment which sees the vote turned against Alexis. Another shocking conclusion to the episode. Brillant, brillant, brillant!moreless
  • Erik's betrayal and determination to out smart the women's alliance.

    Well, that sucks. Alexis is now gone. I honestly like Alexis and since she's injured, if Amanda and Parvati voted for Natalie, then Erik could've at least stood a chance of winning a challenge physically against Alexis. Erik definitely had fought hard to stay in the game now that he's the last man standing. What can I say, maybe the women will turn on eachother like the ones in Vanuatu. Erik could repeat history like Chris and be the last guy standing since JAMES left. You need a guy on the island to look at and for challenges just like Yasur needed rory. Erik better win or else.....................moreless
  • GO AMANDA!!!

    Aww wasn't that THE best tribal council meeting in this series so far? I mean I knew Amanda had the idol cos she was over doing it with her bottom lip and the sad puppy dog eyes, but to see everyone's faces when she was like "Oh about that Jeff" and YEAH!! On the jury Ozzy and James had huge cheeses on their faces! And did you see Ozzy when Jeff mentioned they idol? What a laugh, I still love Ozzy and hopefully he can work the jury from the inside! And hopefully in Amanda's favour if she's in the final 2!!

    Poor James, I would of liked to see him continue in the game! But he was hurt and needed more medical attention than they could give him! It's sad though!

    And those jellyfish looked so cool, like moving flowers underwater! So cool!!

    Keep up the good work Amanda!!!moreless
  • One of my favorite episodes of this season!

    This episode was SO good! After two weeks of people having the hidden immuinty idol and then not playing it, the idol FINALLY gets played! ---------------------

    At the reward challenge the tribes family members came and if you won you got to spend the day with them. Alexis won the challenge and chose Cirie and Natalie to come along. She then sent Amanda to exile island. James had a bad cut in his finger and he could no longer be in the game. The made him leave and he had to have surgery. Which ment Erik was the only guy left.

    At exile Amanda found all the clues but the last clue said that the Hidden idol was at camp. At the immunity challenge Erik won which ment the all girl alliance would end and one of them would be sent home.

    Once they got back to camp Amanda told everyone she did NOT have the idol and she let them look throught her bag and there was no idol there. Amanda and Parvati went into the woods and Amanda told her that the idol is at camp and that she needs her help. They decide that they should vote out Alexis.

    Amanda tried to get Cirie and Erik on her side and they both wouldn't vote with her. And they all said they were voting for her.

    Parvati distracted everyone in the cave while Amanda went to look for the idol.

    At tribal council Amanda said she couldn't find the idol on exile. She then brought up Erik and said that she kept him alive in this game but he won't help her. She said that she will be gone.

    They all voted. Jeff Probst asked if anyone had the idol. Natalie, Alexis, Cirie, and Erik all thought that Amanda didn't have it. But then she raised her hand and said "Yea. About that Jeff." Those 4 all looked shocked while Amanda and Parvati had smiles on their faces. The jury (Eliza, Ozzy, Jason, and James) all looked so happy. Amanda told everyone that she didn't lie when she said she didn't find it on exile. She stood up and said "But i got it!" and gave it to Jeff. He said it is an idol and Amanda could not be voted out.

    Jeff read Natalie, Alexis, Cirie, and Eriks votes which were all votes were for Amanda. Jeff then read Amanda and Parvati's votes which were for Alexis. Alexis was voted out and then 5 remained.


    I just LOVED this episode! It was awesome and i loved how Amanda played the idol. After watching this ep i hope that Amanda wins the whole thing and Parvati is the runner up.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Jeff: (to remaining castaways after Tribal Council results) You guys are perfecting the art of the blindside. That is the good news and that is the bad news.

    • Amanda: (at Tribal Council, to remaining castaways after pulling out the Hidden Immunity Idol) I just want to say, when I told you all I didn't have it, I didn't have it then so I didn't lie.

    • Cirie: (referring to Erik) If it comes to down to him winning immunity, the women will definitely have to start eating each other.

    • Parvati: (referring to James being medicaly evacuated) James is, like, is one of the toughest guys I've ever met in my life and I have so much respect for James and who he is in life and it's just not fair. It's just not fair for him to go out like that.

    • James: (after learning he has to leave for medical reasons) I mean, I'd much rather have been voted out but I'm definitely ready to go and get the thing fixed. No need to fraternize about it. Just go and get it done.

    • Cirie: Alexis takes a tumble in the dark. James, he has his finger infected. I know this is bad because I am a nurse but that's two less people I have to fight against for a million dollars.

    • James: (referring to finger injury) I work with my hands so it's very important that I get this thing fixed as soon as possible because I'll need my hands when I get back home.

    • James: (about Alexis) I'm gonna fix her.
