Episode Summary

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

  • The Nakum Gorilla! <3333333

    A fun and exciting episode! But best of all was the Nakum gorilla bugging everyone! The zookeeper Cindy believes that the monkey is lost and separatied from his family, which would be sad. But that thing was so loud, I'm surprised Yazxha weren't complaining about him as well!! :D

    It is an interesting set of challenges! The Reward challenge with the tents was aweosome!!! Brooke is my favourite at the moment,so I am glad she didn't cost Nakum the win, otherwise it would place a target on her back.

    Meanwhile, the Immunity Challenge was even better! Who knew the Maya had such asn awesome sport! It's looking really fun,, especially given the wobbly net surface!!

    Nakum continues to win, which is great! I love Nakum, except maybe Judd. I like most of Yaxha too, but not really Gary, Rafe or Liydia.

    I'm upset that Brianna went. She was downright dredful ta the Immunity Challenge, but I think she is more valuable than Lydia in other types of challenges, so I think it was a wrong move for Yaxha, but only time will tell!

    Can't wait for next week! I'm really enjoying this! <333moreless
  • Men being Men!

    I loved Bobby Jon in Palau

    And thought he was strong as an ox

    As well as strong at heart and mind

    But I don't like him this season at all

    Because he and Judd are acting like they are on a camping trip and vacation

    Leaving poor nurse Maggie to do all of the work

    And that they shouldn't be complaining at all

    When she is only providing morale support

    What a bunch of wimps IMO!
  • Boring!

    Wow, Survivor amoungst the amazing Mayan ruins (I love archaeology), who thought it could be so boring! I'm a fan, but this had to be one of the most boring episodes ever (I set up my video recorder for this!). About the only interesting thing was to see rumblings in the Nakum tribe aagainst Margaret who nursed many of the guys back to health! Talk about gratitude and can that Jamie winge (please get rid of him soon)! Has anyone noticed someone flyin under the radar? Brooke, don't remember ever seeing her say anything? Wonder if anyone will get nibbled by a croc while going for a dip in the lake, at least that would be interesting!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • 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.

  • QUOTES (12)

  • NOTES (1)


    • Brandon says the title of the episode when talking about swimming in the croc-infested waters. The quote is also apparently from the movie, The Princess Diaries.

    • Due to her ability to determine why the howler monkey is making so much noise, Judd refers to Cindy as "Dr. Doolittle", the legendary animal doctor, and also the basis of a movie version starring Eddie Murphy, who is capable of conversing with animals.
