Episode Summary

On Foa Foa, Mick is having a hard time trying to start a fire, but Ben is able to do it without any problems. Russell realizes Ben is good around camp and plans to keep him around. Over on Galu, everyone is relaxing and doing yoga except "Shambo", which makes her feel a little alienated. Back on Foa Foa, Russell tells Ben that Ashley wanted him out the night before in an attempt to get Ashley out. Then, before the Immunity Challenge, the tribes receive tree mail containing their swimming suits. The reward and immunity is won by Galu, and as the team leader, Russell is given the choice between comfort or camping tools. Right away he chooses the towels and pillows and the women are happy with the decision, but the men are not. He also chooses "Shambo" to visit and observe the Foa Foa tribe. During "Shambo's" visit, she comes off as very friendly and approachable. While she is there, she discovers the second clue to the hidden immunity idol. But she doesn't know that Russell already has it. Meanwhile, Jaison is trying his best to get Ben voted out, while Russell continues talking to the others to try and get Ashely out. Then at Tribal Council, Jaison and Ben argue right before the vote.moreless

  • Glad to see Ben gone!

    9.0
    Glad to see that Ben was gone and that he was more of a jerk than Russell H is. Despite that Russell is really controlling his dumb as a rock tribe. Knowing that he isn't there to win it over the money. But Jaison says he won't spend one minute with Ben, making sexist and racist remarks. Meanwhile, it seems Galu is being spoiled by their winning ways. That there is no water in camp nor food. And despite at times being annoying, Shambo is indeed doing the work in camp. Galu continues it's winning ways. And Shambo is sent to Foa Foa, where she fits in and that she is low-key than Jasmine was when she went. Everybody loves her there. Jaison and Ben have a big arguement at camp over Ben's attitude towards people of color and women. Ben is voted out and even his closest ally, Russell H voted for him. He may have lasted three episodes, but Ben is the most hated Survivor up there! In the villians section!moreless
  • Foa Foa continues to struggle with the elements and each other. Things are better at Galu but not too much better as Shambo becomes increasingly alienated from her tribe and the male members of Galu become unhappy with a choice their leader makes.moreless

    8.0
    I think it's safe to say that when Galu finally goes to tribal council, Shambo will be unanimously voted out. Her actions almost predict that. The fact that she has a growing resentment towards her tribe and was giving aid to the enemy when she was helping out at Foa Foa is a good sign of that. Shambo knows that as well considering her efforts to find the immunity idol. Russell's control at Foa Foa might be showing signs of fading considering the fact that he tried to get the tribe to vote out Ashley. An interesting game so far.moreless
  • Russell has to make a though choice regarding who, to vote.

    9.5
    This episode marks another fight lost for Foa Foa.

    Challenge is lost and another member leaves.

    Russell is into kicking Ashley supported by Ben but Jason is on a different path. He has a personal hate against Ben for supposedly saying a racist remark.

    Personally I don't think it was racist it was just something he thought of that very moment. And its surprising that someone like Jason, a person with education and culture is that sensitive.

    Bottom line is with all the interventions of Russell for Ben he had no choice but to agree to let Ben go.

    A merge will happen pretty soon I think because Foa Foa is decimated.

    I am really interested to know how Russell thinks he will win Survivor if his group is destroyed.moreless
