We start tonight's episode with the usual recap before following the Brawn tribe back to camp with the blue light special. Unfortunately, now that Alicia is all on board and trusts her tribe mates, they're starting to question their vote.
Morning dawns on the Beauty tribe and once again, while the rest of the tribe is enjoying a dip, Tai goes back in search of the Idol. In no time he finds a clue that leads him to a locked box, then he finds another clue that leads him to the key . . . way up a black Palm tree. Unfortunately Tai is no Ozzy and he can't make his way up the tree to get the key and he's already been gone too long so he gives up and heads back to camp.
Time to visit the Brains who've created a roaring fire with the fuel from their reward. Elizabeth (I think that's her name, I'm still working on it) is afraid to drink the boiled water while Debbie is guzzling it straight. We also discover that Debbie has around 40 cats back home. Who the heck is feeding those cats?
Back to the Beauty camp for a sugar cane breakfast. I'm a little worried about Tai calling Caleb cuddlelicious, but Caleb doesn't seem to care one way or the other. The women are surprised how well these two polar opposites seem to get along, until Tai moves in for a kiss. Nope, not fast enough Tai.
The Brains realize that their jar of fuel is almost empty because it fell over on its side and now everyone is upset with 71 year old Joe, the retired FBI guy they blame for it. Apparently none of them thought enough to keep an eye on the fire and keep it going, not exactly the brainiest survivors.
Over at Brawn they're still trying to make fire and without fire they can't boil water or cook food. Jason's okay with the hardship but the women are starting to stress out about the lack of clean water. At least Alicia is continuing to try and get a fire going while the others all lounge in the shade. Five hours later she finally has a little fire, which wakes the guys from their sleep, but now they need to gather sticks. Now? Well, at least now they can cook a nice evening meal.
The next day it's time for the immunity challenge and the first look for Brains and Beauty at who got voted out at Tribal. In today's Immunity Challenge they need to race across the water to get a really heavy log and carry it through some obstacles to get a ball on a rope that they can slingshot at three targets to raise their flag. First tribe to win gets a huge fishing kit and a boat back at camp while the second tribe gets a smaller fishing kit. Debbie sits out for Brains and I missed which one of the women sat out for Beauty.
When Jeff says "go" everyone is quickly into the water to get their 300 pound log. Brawn and Beauty take the lead carrying the log on their shoulders as they slog through the surf and the Brains drop behind. They decided to just float their log and save their strength. That might work, . . . and it does as they take the lead when they get to the obstacle.
It was short lived as they got themselves all knotted up and allowed the Beauty tribe to move ahead and begin firing at their targets first. It was close but Beauty wins first Immunity and Brain wins the second Immunity. In a challenge geared towards muscle it's a surprise that once again Brawn gets to visit Tribal Council.
After the challenge we follow the losers back to camp where most of the Brawn tribe is ready to throw Alicia under the bus. She knows it so she goes off to find a Hidden Immunity Idol. Good call, cause she's likely to need it. That said, Jason is starting to put a target on his own back with his attitude against Alicia which is starting to rub Jenny the wrong way. Time for an all girl alliance, if they can keep it together long enough to get to Tribal Council.
Jason begins to notice the girls getting together so Scott checks in with Jenny who says it's all good. Now she's waffling on the all girl alliance. There's a big surprise.
At Tribal Council Jenny says that things back at camp have been up in the air, back and forth, and now Scott and Jason are starting to panic. I love how Jeff can get them to turn on each other with just one question. Jenny says the all girl alliance was Alicia's idea, Alicia says it was all Jenny's idea, and Sydney/Cindy/whoever (I'll check for next week) just wants people to make a decision so she knows how to vote. Jason makes light of it as the girls now turn on each other, but all Scott has heard is that Jenny turned on him. This could be bad news for Jenny.
I think Jenny's lost it and Jeff was a little concerned she was about to quit when she got up like she was reaching for her torch but she didn't so now it's time to vote. Jeff does a quick tally, asks for the Hidden Immunity Idol and then reads the votes . . . Jenny, Alicia, Alicia, Jenny, and finally . . . Jenny. Well, apparently that backfired as Jenny took herself out.
Next week Debbie tries to ally with Joe, while what's left of the Brawn tribe gets busy looking for that Hidden Immunity Idol. It looks like it'll be a fun episode and I'll be right here with another review. See you then.
