Episode Summary

The tribes are dying of thirst and when it rains, they drink and collect it like wild animals. A mysterious box with three locks shows up as tree mail. Saboga wins the reward challenge and allows all the tribes to get a flint and a pot with a clue to the first key for the box, which they now know is rice. Back at the camps, everyone can finally make fire. Next, at the Immunity Challenge, Saboga appears to win, but loses again. At tribal council, Rudy is all-star number two to go.moreless

  • Same old Same old!

    If you think that the Survivors when they played the game the first time had learned from their mistakes, well, guess again.

    They kept making the same old mistakes over and over again.

    Rudy, then seventy-five years old, was physically weak this time.

    Not the rough and ready person he was in Borneo.

    Which led to his downfall in the second episode.

    As grouchy and jerky as he may be, he was a very strong person to participate in one last Survivor!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In this season, Rudy finished 32 days less than his previous finish.

    • With his elimination, Rudy winds up holding the record for the fewest amount of days (44) playing the game for a contestant with more than one appearance. He spent 38 days as a contestant in Borneo before being voted off at the final 3 Tribal Council and six days in "All-Stars."

    • Look carefully at the scene just after the theme, when Rudy is telling stories to Saboga at camp. In the middle of the scene, you can see a pan with writing on it. This pan was introduced at the reward challenge, later on, so the opening scene actually occurred after the challenge, not before.
