Episode Summary

Galu returns from Tribal Council and "Shambo" is surprised to find out she was the only one who did not vote for Yasmine. The others comment how the campsite is better without Yas and Monica targets "Shambo" because of her vote. The next morning both tribes notice that the waves and tides in the ocean have been stronger than usual. The tribes then get tree mail telling them their next reward challenge is a food eating challenge. After Galu wins the challenge, Russell sends "Shambo" to visit Foa Foa meaning she would miss out on the reward of steaks and sausages, a decision that does not go over well with "Shambo". On Galu, everyone is ready for the barbeque and Russell can't start the fire, but Dave comes to the rescue and the tribe enjoys their steaks. Back on Foa Foa, "Shambo" shares all the clues for the hidden immunity idol with the others, but when they can't find it, Liz suspects Russell has it and that he is lying about it. That evening, it starts raining and both tribes are miserable and suffer through the rainstorm which continues on during the Immunity Challenge. After Foa Foa loses the challenge, the tribemates try to keep dry from the rain by sitting in their shelter. As a result, no one is able to talk to each other about who they are planning to vote for. However at Tribal Council, the entire tribe are unanimous in their vote.moreless

  • A good episode!

    9.0
    This episode was well constructed with two very interesting challenges. I really enjoyed seeing the contestants struggle through the challenge of drinking those disgusting smoothies. That is quality television!



    However, I personally felt that challenge was a little bit too far on the gross side for me, and I felt sick just watching it!



    The second challenge was also great to watch. I thought that was well constructed and it was very intriguing, even though it was pretty one-sided.



    Even though I hadn't seen the first few episodes of the season, I was surprised that Ashley was eliminated. I thought it would be Liz, but I don't mind.



    It was a good episode, not a great one, but very enjoyable to watch, and somewhat unpredictable. Great work!moreless
  • Galu really is getting an ego!

    7.5
    As much as nobody wants Russell on Foa Foa, still he is a bit entertaining. And that Foa Foa is getting a lot of airtime over him. As Galu now with their win streak, is getting spoiled over their wins. And to add injury to insult, they send Shambo back to Foa Foa after losing the fishing gear and getting off the chicken. She does fit in with Foa Foa. Galu's leader Russell is getting an ego trip. And that the power is going through his head. The blankets they shouldn't had gotten over the tarps. And now with all the rain, they are paying for it. Ashley is gone as she is the weakest.moreless
  • Foa Foa is weakened yet again.. Russell(FF)has again the opportunity to eliminate a though competitor.

    9.0
    This episode is disappointing because the tribe that bears the most fascination is Foa Foa and they loose both challenges.

    In the first one-food eating-they get the second place thanks to Ashley who is unwilling to eat Sea Slug Guts.While I agree it sounds sickening, when your on Survivor, you should use certain techniques to avoid disgustment. One would be to close your eyes and eat what they gave you, or being so focused on the objective that you can say screw it,I'll eat whatever they give me.However Ashley is the weakest link here.

    In an interesting event Shambo who is decided to accompany Foa Foa (due to some mistakes she did) reads all clues, and this makes Liz suspect Russell even more who tells her she is on thin ice.

    On immunity challenge the test consists of the one who is able to pull ropes which have attached a basket while people from enemy tribe will try to score coconuts inside the baskets. Again a disaster as people from Foa Foa hardly manage to score them. Interesting is inside Foa Foa camp, Russell and the other members are unable to strategize because they are forced to remain all together inside the tent. At the Tribal Council the weakest link gets voted out.

    I think soon there could be a new randomization of the groups as Foa Foa lost to many members.

    Now in the scenes from next episode there is presented an accident during a Challenge. I have studied the images a few times and I think its one of the three:

    1.Russell(Foa FOa)-hope not;p

    2.Russell(leader of Galu).

    3.Shambo.

    To be honest I hope neither has to leave Survivor due to accenting.moreless
