Call This Justice is the seventh episode of Survivor: Africa.
Day 18 (Night)
The three remaining members of the Samburu tribe return to camp, having just blindsided Kris from the game, keeping outcast Adela due to her proposition that she could provide Soledad and Mary with new allies come merge. Adela appears to be shaken, in total shock that the two girls kept her over Kris. Mary hugs Adela, whilst Soledad stands over the fire, attempting to keep it going for the night.
|“||I am in total shock right now. I fully expected that I was leaving this game, and I cant believe that Soledad and Mary kept me here. I am just so grateful that I've been given the opportunity to stay in the game, and I'm glad that they saw the deal I offered was one they should take. We all expect that the merge is around the corner and I intend to keep my word. Hopefully we can pull over my old tribe mates plus those loyal to Mary and Soledad, and together we can take control of the merge. I feel like my fortune has turned, and that I survived last tribal for a reason. Maybe it is my destiny to win this game.||”|
- I know I keep saying thank you, but I really cant stop saying it. You two have saved me twice now, and I hope I can repay you with my loyalty.- Adela
- We did what we felt was best, and we're glad you're here.- Mary
- As long as you say what you did, then this risk should pay off for all of us.- Soledad
|“||Tonight we voted Kris out of the game, and I know he didn't see it coming. It feels wrong to turn on someone like that, but I need to remember that I'm playing for a large sum of money, and being the 'nice' person in the past has only gotten me in trouble. I do worry that Boran will target myself and Soledad when they see we've kept Adela. If anything Phillis should like this move, because she didn't appreciate me being the appeaser... Now I'm playing a ruthless game she should give me an ounce of respect.||”|
- Poor Kris though, he really didn't see that coming.- Mary
- If I didn't see it coming I doubt he did.- Adela
- Well, I guess you should never feel safe out here.- Soledad
- All his stuffs here... he didn't even pack a bag.- Mary
|“||Tonight was a big risk for my game, but I feel that this should help me in the merge. Kris was going to be loyal to Phillis, and if we voted out Adela the old Samburu tribe would likely side against us too, making myself and Mary easy targets for the first merge tribal council. Strategically both moves were risky, but I feel that this one will be what gets me to the final tribal council, and ultimately to the million dollars.||”|
The Boran tribe sit around camp, all confused as to why no tribe mail has been delivered, having all expected to hear about the merge. Don tells the tribe that they must not be merging, and that they need to return to camp life.
|“||The whole tribe got their hopes up about a merge happening, and when we didn't hear about it in the tree mail they all sat around dumbfounded. I told them to get the hell over themselves and that work needed to be done. These young kids don't understand how the fire gets there, or how we keep the animals out... its not by sitting around waiting for a new colored buff.||”|
David and Luigino both sit and talk for several moments longer, with David telling Luigino that he is feeling emotionally know, stating that Adela is likely out of the game, leaving them will little option but to go with Phillis' alliance at the merge. Luigino tells David that they need to accept that as their option, and after they vote out Marsha they can figure out their plan of action.
|“||It really does hit me hard knowing that Adela is probably out of the game now, and that we might not even be merging. Phillis gets on both mine and Luigino's nerves, but we're aware that she's our only option right now. I'm hoping that after voting out Marsha and another ex-Boran member that I can turn the vote on Phillis, before trying to take control of the tribe. I realize this is going to be difficult, especially considering I have to count on Ingrid's vote during all of this... She's not exactly someone who I'm close with out here, and its apparent that she'd rather play nanny than Survivor.||”|
The entire tribe begins working around camp, all feeling down about the prospect of the merge occurring late. As the temperature increases, and the sun beams down on the unprotected Boran camp, the group begin to feel dehydration setting in.
|“||We worked for hours, and the sun just cooked us. I looked over at the others hoping someone would call a break... but no one did... we just kept working, and working, and working...||”|
As Don climbs on the tribes barrier to add new branches, he suddenly falls backwards, hitting the ground hard behind him. The entire tribe rush to his side, checking to see if their eldest member is ok. Don isn't responsive, and his eyes appear to have rolled back in his head. The medical team is called in, getting Don's tribe to move to one side, giving them space to check him over.
|“||When I saw medical coming in I feared the worst. Don is an old man and we cant forget that, I mean he is a tough guy, but it doesn't take away from the fact he is extremely vulnerable out here... more so than the rest of us.||”|
- Don, can you sit up for me?- Medical team leader
- (grunts, and slowly sits up)- Don
- Ok, open your eyes for me if you can.- Medical team leader
- I'm fine... I'm fine. I just need to sit down.- Don
|“||Don is always workin'. You know always saying how he needs to get stuff done. He needs to take it easy because clearly he's struggling out here. I think it would be the worst thing to see him pulled from the game because of an injury... He took a nasty fall and he's lucky to be ok.||”|
Medical rule that Don is extremely dehydrated, and that his blood pressure has dropped dramatically. They inform him that in order to keep his health sufficient, that he should rest for the remainder of the day, or else he could possibly find him blacking out again, leading to his potential evacuation from the game.
|“||It isn't fun being told to sit down and to watch everyone else work around you. I suppose that's the part of me that doesn't want to feel old. It's horrible losing the ability to work at the level you once could, but I need to accept it for now.||”|
The tribe stop working after Don's fall, deciding instead to cook some corn, and to relax for the remainder of the evening, hoping that tomorrow will bring news of the much anticipated merge.
The Samburu tribe (similarly to Boran) are shocked to see that they haven't received any tree mail, causing the group to believe that the merge will not be occurring day 19 like they had predicted.
|“||I cant believe that there's no tree mail informing us that the merge is happening. I honestly feel like I'm about to lose all hope in this game. I seem to find myself in this game, only to have all my plans tarnished right before me because of some change to the game that's out of my control. Soledad and Mary are worried too because if we don't merge, and then continue to lose... Then all our games are done. We counted on the merge happening and now it seems like we were wrong. There's no news on a reward challenge either, which I suppose gives me a glimmer of hope.||”|
- What reaction do you think your old tribe will have seeing that you're still here?- Soledad
- They'll probably be as shocked as I am.- Adela
- I should think they will be. Hopefully its a nice shocked though (laughs)- Mary
- There's no way they'll be disappointed.- Adela
|“||It is quite a strange vibe at camp right now, because there's only three of us left, and we're all waiting to be told to go somewhere... But no tree mail has been delivered, so we're all just sat around unsure as to where the game will take us next. I hope its somewhere better than here, because three more days on Samburu would surely put a nail in our coffins.||”|
- Are you worried your old tribe members will freak out that Kris it gone?- Adela
- Yes... Especially because he left to keep you here, they'll know something is up.- Mary
- I don't think we need to care what they think. If we get David, Luigino, Ingrid, Don and Marsha then we hold the strong majority... It doesn't matter what Abbas and Phillis think at this point, they wont be able to do anything.- Soledad
- Well, I think the smartest thing is to vote those two out, then to work out what we do from there.- Adela
- Probably vote David out, considering his strength in challenges.- Soledad
- Uh, maybe... I don't know if I'd be comfortable with voting him out so soon.- Adela
|“||Adela mentioned that she wasn't comfortable with voting David out of this game, which really worries me. She is keen to get both Abbas and Phillis out, which in my opinion is because she has a greater motive, which is to get the four old Samburu members to the final four. I think she will vote with us, but only until she doesn't need our help anymore. It means that I need to get her firmly under my grasp, and that Phillis may survive the first vote... In the interest of playing this thing smart, Luigino or Ingrid will need to go first.||”|
The tribe awakens to tree mail, which has been collected by Don and David. The two men anticipate the mail will inform them of a merge, but are bitterly disappointed to see it is simply concerning their next immunity challenge, which it states will occur later that day.
|“||Another hit to the gut... Immunity... I suppose we're not merging yet, and this game will continue to play in old Borans favor.||”|
- Guys we've got mail.- David
- Oh! What does it say!?- Phillis
- Dont get too excited.- Don
- Oh God, what is it?- Ingrid
- We've got immunity today.- David
- You're joking...- Ingrid
- Nope, gotta get ready to leave in the next hour.- David
- Where the hell is the merge!?- Phillis
|“||It disgusts me that we're under the impression that the merge happens on day nineteen... Yet here we are day twenty still waiting for a sign that this game will become interesting.||”|
|“||Another immunity challenge, I'm hoping that there's a twist. I wouldn't mind seeing the tribes get shaken up again... That would be a shock. Maybe the merge wont ever come this season (laughs) Jeff did tell us to be ready for anything.||”|
The tribe awakens to the same tree mail that Boran received, shocking the girls that immunity is occurring as opposed to reward or a merge. The girls quickly get ready to leave, all wanting to find out what is going on, having grown tired of sitting at camp with little company to keep them entertained.
|“||Tree mail says the next immunity challenge is today, which I guess means that we're still playing this game as two tribes. Maybe its amusing to see one tribe fail so badly, so they've decided to postpone the merge until Samburu has completely dissolved.||”|
|“||I'm really apprehensive about seeing the Boran tribe today, because I know my presence is going to shock everyone over on their mat. It would have been a nice way to set the tone of the merge, but I suppose I need to accept that the tribal phase isn't over yet.||”|
The Boran tribe arrives to the challenge area, awaiting the arrival of the dwindling Samburu tribe. Jeff calls out to the Samburu tribe, ordering them to "come on in".
- Boran getting their first look at the new Samburu tribe... Kris voted out at the last tribal council.- Jeff Probst
- What!?- Phillis
- Oh my God...- Don
- She's still there... She's still there (grabs Luigino's arm and smiles)- David
Adela smiles over to her old tribe mates, whilst Jeff questions the shocked faces on the Boran tribe. Phillis tells Jeff that she is shocked at Kris' departure, and states that she "always knew Boran had a few snakes in its midst", before looking over to Soledad and Mary. Soledad replies by stating that "its all in the game", telling Jeff that their tribe is now stronger and ready to win its first immunity challenge. Jeff tells the tribe that they wont need to worry about winning the challenge, as the game "is about to change again".
- Everybody drop your buffs...- Jeff Probst
- Here we go...- Marsha
- (throws a new buff into Abbas' hand) Congratulations, you have merged into one tribe.- Jeff Probst
- Yes! Yes! (jumps up and down screaming)- Ingrid
- Hallelujah!- Marsha
- Thank God... (hugs both Soledad and Mary)- Adela
- We made it... We did it.- Mary
Adela runs over to her old tribe mates, hugging David first, before greeting the others one by one. Mary and Marsha hug one another, happy to be reunited after several days apart. Soledad hugs Don, who somewhat hugs her back, before she is blanked by Phillis, who seems bitter about Kris' elimination.
|“||This is it. The point of the game that everyone craves. The point where you know you've done alright. None of us need to be embarrassed when we're voted out now, because we've all made the merge!||”|
|“||I didn't think I was going to make it here seven days ago when our tribes were swapped. Had I gone last tribal then I'd have just missed this by a single day, and that would have been painful. Myself, Soledad and Mary know that the decision was a wise one, because we now have the opportunity to take over this game.||”|
Jeff informs the group that they will be facing their first individual immunity challenge, in which they all must hold an arm above their head, which is connected to a bucket full of water, and that if they move their arm, the bucket will tip, and they'll be out of the challenge. Jeff also informs the tribe that he will tempt them with food throughout the challenge, and that if they want the food all they have to do is sacrifice immunity and step down.
|“||I need this immunity because I now know how snakey both Soledad and Mary are. They act like they're leaders and nice people, but they'd sell out their own family to win this game. I'm sorry that I hold morals and they don't, but I cant risk being vulnerable tonight... Not with them both in the game.||”|
4 minutes into the challenge: Soledad slips off her perch, causing the bucket to pour water all over her, being the first one out of the challenge. Soledad embarrassingly sits down on the side lines, laughing at how early she was eliminated.
|“||I would have loved to be immune, but its no big deal. I know that tonight we'll be in good shape. Plus who is going to target the girl who cant stay in a challenge for over four minutes? (laughs)||”|
24 minutes into the challenge: Luigino gives into Jeff's temptation, stepping down to claim his bowl of chips with dip and an ice cold beer. Luigino doesn't hide the fact that he doesn't feel at risk, letting the tribe know he's no threat to win the game, before raising the beer to them and sipping.
25 minutes into the challenge: In an attempt to turn away from Luigino (who was getting on her nerves), Phillis falls from her perch, eliminating herself from the challenge. She angrily walks over to the side, feeling as though it was a "stupid challenge" that she could have never won.
|“||This was a ridiculous challenge. My wrists are skinny so they slipped around the chain much more then the boys did, or Marsha's did... So of course I end up slipping out of it and down to the ground. What's worse is I had to sit next to Luigino's gross old self whilst he stuffed his face with chips and dip.||”|
37 minutes into the challenge: Both Don and Marsha agree to step down in order to share two slices of pizza and two colas. The tribe applaud Don, who they all feel has done well considering his age. Soledad, Luigino and Marsha begin cheering on Ingrid, who they feel is doing extremely well, now the oldest person left in the challenge, competing alongside much younger athletic individuals.
|“||Ingrid was killing it in the challenge today. Girl stayed up there with the likes of Abbas and David... You've got to give the woman credit.||”|
42 minutes into the challenge: Ingrid steps down, claiming 8 slices of pizza and a jug of cola (the rest of the pizza which Don and Marsha got single slices from). Ingrid is applauded for her tribe, smiling as she tucks into her food.
|“||I kicked some serious butt today. I'm not going to deny it. I'm the gusty grandma and they should all carry me around like queen I am (laughs and shakes her head)||”|
1hr 24 minutes into the challenge: With the final four in the challenge refusing to take any temptations, it seems as though the challenge could go on for a long time. Mary slips from her perch, leaving only three remaining to fight it out.
2hr 43 minutes into the challenge: David's arm begins to shake, and he ultimately pulls the bucket down on himself, appearing frustrated as he loses out on the chance to win the challenge.
4hr 36 minutes into the challenge: Adela and Abbas have remained still for hours, with neither giving up, both wanting to claim the first individual immunity win. After trying to stretch his back, Abbas loses his footing, but manages to recover. As he laughs and proclaims "that was close" his arm slips forward, sending the bucket down on him. Adela cheers as she wins the challenge, stepping down and running over to Jeff, who places the necklace on her, stating that she is safe at the first merged tribal council. The final ten head back to Boran's camp, which they all feel is more suitable to spend the remainder of their time living in.
|“||From being in the minority, to being the next to go, to surviving the vote... I am thrilled to finally say that I am safe at tribal council, and that I know I wont be going home. Some people say winning the first merged challenge isn't good for your game, but I wasn't taking any chances... This is what I needed tonight, and now I've got it.||”|
Challenge: When It Rains, It Pours
Each survivor's wrists were attached to a rope connected to a bucket of water overhead. Their arms had to remain above their heads, very still, because the slightest movement would upset the bucket above and shower the person with water, thus eliminating that person from the game. Jeff Probst will then tempt the contestants with some food items in exchange for giving up. Last person left standing wins immunity.
The final ten arrive at the old Boran camp as the newly merged tribe, where they are greeted by a green mat and a buffet all laid out for them to enjoy. The group sits together and immediately begins eating, with some tribe members (particularly Ingrid) offering to eat less, having already eaten during the immunity challenge. Adela sits next to old tribe mate David, who is clearly happy to see her.
|“||When I saw Adela arrive at the immunity challenge I couldn't believe my eyes. I was so sure that she'd be the one voted out. I shouldn't underestimate her. She clearly has game.||”|
- This food is good... Mmmhm.- Marsha
- Dont eat too fast. Kris didn't listen to us when we had the buffet and he had awful stomach cramps all day (laughs)- Mary
- And that's why you voted him out is it?- Phillis
|“||What the hell is wrong with Phillis? We arrive at this merge and want to stop playing the game for two minutes so we can enjoy the food... But she has to put a negative vibe over everyone.||”|
Abbas steers the conversation away from Kris' elimination, instead asking the group what they suggest for a new tribe name.
|“||Whilst we were eating Phillis started to take digs at Mary and Soledad. I was surprised that they've clearly turned on the old Boran alliance, and that both of them obviously have some sort of motive behind keeping Adela... But I wasn't going to publically shame them for it... We need to realize that if they have switched sides then we're the ones in danger, so being aggressive isn't going to help anything. Getting Phillis to shut up was so I could enjoy the feast in peace, and so she didn't damage my game any more then its already been damaged.||”|
- How about Moto Maji?- Luigino
- Huh? What's that?- Ingrid
- It means fire and water... I just thought it sounded good...- Luigino
- Two most valuable elements. I like it...- Abbas
- Moto Maji it is then.- David
The tribe raise their cups to the new name, continuing to enjoy the feast in peace, avoiding any strategic talk until the meal is finished. After finishing the meal, the tribe begins to pack away any food it has left. Ingrid and Abbas get to work painting the tribe flag. Don rests, talking with Soledad about his fall, to which she tells him that he should take things slowly. Mary and Marsha sit and talk, knowing that Phillis is listening to them, keeping the topic off any strategy, not wanting her to have an idea what either of them could be up to. David and Adela go off together, using the excuse of collecting firewood to give them a chance to speak. Adela explains to David how she kept in the game, letting him know that she didn't expect to make it back into the game. She tells him that she managed to stay alive by making a deal with Soledad and Mary, which involves the Samburu members joining them to blindside Phillis. David seems shocked that Adela would make such big plans without him, and decides not to tell her about his deal he made with Phillis.
|“||Initially I was pleased to have Adela back in the game as an ally. But it has become apparent that she's made all these deals with Soledad and Mary, handing them a lot of power... What angers me is that she's included me in these plans, and I don't want to be someone who goes along with her plans because that makes me look like a follower, and I wont get any credit for Phillis' blindside. I'll blindside Phillis in my own time... She's not an issue for me... Evidently she's not a threat at all if she's the one "bound to go" in Adela's eyes. If anything Soledad, Mary and Marsha are the big threats here, as they'll be the ones who hold the power... These seven days away from Adela have shown me two things... That she's incapable of making good strategic calls without my assistance, and that I really don't need her as much as I originally thought.||”|
The newly merged Moto Maji tribe sleep in late, with only Marsha and Mary getting up early in order to discuss their plans for the days tribal council.
- Finally we're getting a chance to talk. I'll try and make it quick but a lot has happened since we got swapped...- Mary
- Same over here... I now officially cant stand Phillis any longer. Don, Abbas, David and Luigino are all spineless too...- Marsha
- Why what happened?- Mary
- Phillis decided to attack me on several occasions. The only person to look out for me was Ingrid. David and Luigino are so far up Phillis' ass now its embarrassing.- Marsha
- They're with her? Oh God...- Mary
|“||Marsha informed me that since I got put on Samburu, that Phillis has almost taken over the Boran tribe... and that Don, Abbas, Luigino and David are all in her "group". If this is true then I'm extremely worried because we need those votes to get her out tonight.||”|
- I thought you'd have figured...- Marsha
- Well the reason Adela is still here is because she said she could get David, Luigino and Ingrid to vote with us... We want to take out Phillis first. Soledad will have Don... So all we need is for one of them to join us.- Mary
- Phillis isn't the right vote...- Marsha
- You dont think?- Mary
- Nuh-uh... Don wont vote her out. If we want a chance of getting him on side we need to vote for Luigino. Don will vote for him, then the rest of us vote him... Then get David to vote Phillis just to play it safe, split them up and we've got it in the bag.- Marsha
- ... This really changes everything... (sighs)- Mary
|“||Of course this first vote wasn't going to be easy for me and my group. I would love to vote for Phillis, but its not going to work. If we vote her tonight then we lose Don, because he wont turn on Boran so quickly. If we want a chance to stay in this thing then we need to vote for Luigino, who Don called out for being lazy. I'm already in panic mode because I know they could be coming after me first...||”|
Soledad walks over to Mary and Marsha, realizing that Mary is filling Marsha in on the plan. Marsha tells Soledad that she doesn't agree with going after Phillis, and that to play it safe they should target Luigino (an easier target). Soledad agrees, saying she also feels that to give Samburu the numbers would mean they could take control later on, and that by doing this they would prevent Phillis' alliance from taking control, whilst preventing Samburu from holding the power later on.
|“||I'm glad that Marsha shared in my concerns for this first merged tribal council. As much as Phillis is annoying and deserves to go, we need to get rid of Luigino. He's the safest of the two votes. I need to let Don know the vote later on, because I think he's having trouble trusting me since Kris left... He's very loyal and to see that I've gone against the original group... It put doubt in his mind.||”|
Adela meets with the three girls, who tell her that the plan has changed. Adela admits she isn't fully comfortable with Luigino being the vote, as she wouldn't be able to convince David or Ingrid to vote him out. Soledad tells her not to worry, as they will have Don's vote. Marsha tells the group that she knows Luigino has past votes, meaning that in a 5-5 tie he would go home, as he has the most votes of anyone in the game. Adela confirms that Luigino has votes, feeling more comfortable with the prospect of voting him out.
|“||Things are getting crazy in Africa. First the plan was to vote out Phillis, now its to get rid of Luigino. I like Luigino, I spent twelve days in an alliance with him... But since we merged he hasn't really made the effort with me... I feel like my new alliance with Soledad and Mary is stronger at this point, and I want myself and David to join them. I know the girls want me to get David to vote for Phillis... but I dont want to lie to him because we trust one another... If we do end up going to a tie then Luigino will go home, but I'd rather the vote went smoothly... and there was no need to re-vote... I know if I dont tell David that he'll lose all trust in me when we return from tribal, and that will make the game extremely difficult for me.||”|
The group spot the girls talking together, leading Phillis to take advantage of the situation. She turns to Don, Abbas, Luigino and Ingrid who are sat around her.
- You'd have thought their alliance talks would be a bit more subtle wouldn't you?- Phillis
- Absolutely...- Luigino
- No doubt talking about voting one of us out.- Phillis
- Well... as long as we stick together we should be ok...- Abbas
- I cant wait for them to approach us individually to gain our trust. If they really valued us we'd be over in the chat right now.- Phillis
|“||Its clear that the tribe is split into two groups, and that I need to make sure my group are all on board with voting for one of the old Boran girls. At this point I haven't picked a target... I cant decide who is more annoying... Marsha or Mary... then there's Soledad. I would vote all three of them if I could, but sadly we can only remove one of them tonight.||”|
|“||It upsets me that I looked out for Marsha in this game, and tried to protect her from Phillis... I suppose her way of saying thank you was leaving me out of this all girl alliance they formed... It's fine, I'm use to being the outcast here. I suppose I'll just vote with the side who bothered to talk about the vote with me...||”|
David and Adela talk together about the vote.
- So who are you going for?- David
- Dont freak out... but I've discussed it with the others... they dont want to vote Phillis anymore.- Adela
- Who is it now!?- David
- Lui...- Adela
- You're kidding me right?- David
- No... Listen I know its tough... But it has to be done... They're all set on it... If we go to a tie he goes anyway, you may as well just get with the majority now.- Adela
|“||Adela has lost it. She wants me to turn on my own ally to help her new alliance? If she wasn't immune tonight I'd honestly consider turning this whole thing on her. There is no way I'm turning on Luigino, or my deal with Phillis. The more I think about it the clearer it becomes that her deal is the better one. Tonight Adela will be shocked because I'll do everything in my power to make sure the new Boran tribe sticks together to blindside Mary or Soledad.||”|
Whilst Adela unsuccessfully talks to David, Mary and Soledad attempt to talk with Don, who seems reluctant to discuss any sort of strategy. Soledad tries to assure Don that the vote is the best one, and that it is to prevent Samburu from taking control. Don tells Soledad that he will think about it.
|“||Honestly, I no longer have strong faith in Soledad. I've been away from her for a while, and maybe my loyalties have shifted... Maybe I now feel closer to Phillis and Abbas. I dont know how I'll vote... It'll be a decision I make alone later.||”|
Marsha, Mary and Soledad get together before tribal, all clearly concerned with the unclear direction the tribe is headed, with no one certain where their loyalties are.
- I dont think he's with us...- Marsha
- Don? Jesus Christ... (sighs)- Mary
- I dont know what to do... Adela says she's unsure about David now...- Soledad
- As long as we keep the vote Luigino... then one of David or Don should vote with us.- Mary
- I honestly think we should talk to Ingrid... Just to get that safety net.- Marsha
- No, no more people... If we approach everyone they'll see us as playing too hard.- Soledad
- But I think-...- Marsha
- No! Trust me Marsha! I've been playing this thing strategically from the start... To approach Ingrid now would just put Don and David off even more...- Soledad
|“||I dont know what is about to happen in tribal, but I get the sense that things aren't going our way. Don and David are both being extremely shady on where their votes will go. I hope that I'm wrong and its just the paranoia, but I see myself, Marsha or Soledad leaving tonight... And I blame our inability to come to a decision quickly... I think we approached the wrong people, and we may pay for that at tribal.||”|
At tribal council the group discuss the blatant split in the tribe, with two alliances emerging from the tribe swap. Phillis calls out Mary and Soledad for being backstabbers, telling Don, David, Luigino, Abbas and Ingrid that they shouldn't side with individuals like that, as they will only backstab them down the line. Mary argues back with Phillis, calling her out for her bullish antics, particularly her attacks on herself and Marsha. When asked whether the swap has caused alliances to fragment, the entire tribe answers yes, feeling as though this has been the most frantic day of any season of Survivor. Adela claims no one is certain where the vote will go, as "everyone is playing everyone". After the voting is complete, Soledad's alliance is shocked to see both Don and David abandoned them, and that the four of them were left alone in voting for Luigino. In the end it is Mary who falls victim to Phillis' group, with the other six players all voting for her. Mary hugs her friends goodbye, wishing the three of them luck, before holding back tears as she leaves the tribal council area. Phillis is left looking smug, whilst David shrugs at Adela as she questions his decision. The final nine return to camp, with the knowledge that they have all at least made the jury stage of the game.
Mary (6 votes)
Abbas, David, Don, Ingrid, Luigino & Phillis
Luigino (4 votes)
Adela, Marsha, Mary & Soledad
|“||You are an amazing woman. If I was voting for someone who I felt deserved to go, then it definitely wouldn't be you. You've proven yourself to be a threat, and that's why you have to go.||”|
|“||Hopefully things fall into place, although I think I'm ready for the worst. So yeah, hopefully its you.||”|
|“||You and I never really spoke, but from what I've heard you aren't the most trustworthy individual. You helped turn Adela to your little alliance, and ultimately you guys dug your own demise.||”|
|“||I'm sadly having to vote you tonight because you turned your back on the Boran tribe. You and Soledad both made it difficult to trust you, and for this reason I vote you out tonight. I'm sorry.||”|
|“||I was happy to join you guys in your all girls alliance. Sadly you made it an exclusive club, and decided to push me out of it... For this reason I sided with the others and vote for you tonight.||”|
|“||I dont know why you thought you would succeed in getting rid of me tonight. David informed me that you feel I was the right vote, well here's a little surprise for you... Bye bye.||”|
|“||This vote will likely be in the minority because of how badly we worked this.||”|
|“||Apparently you annoyed Don, and that's why we picked you. Nothing personal.||”|
|“||This is the most exciting moment in the game so far. Finally we rid ourselves of your incessant irritating ways. I dont care about all this spiritual stuff, and I certainly dont care for your false enthusiasm and kindness. Call this justice.||”|
|“||I know there's a bit of confusion as to how this vote will go, but if people are who they've portrayed themselves to be for twenty one days then it'll be you going. It is a shame that we haven't had a chance to talk, and for that I am sorry.||”|
|“||Its been a grand experience. I've made long lasting friends, and of course a best friend in Marsha. I sensed that we were in trouble before tribal council, hence why I had my bag on my lap (laughs) I hope that the game can change again, and that either Soledad, Adela or of course Marsha can go on to win. I've enjoyed every second of the game, and I wouldn't change anything about my experience, because I stayed true to myself. Being ruthless was my downfall, so I should stay true to my nice nature, and stay the passive appeaser I was born to be.||”|
