Hotties and Notties is the third episode of Survivor: The Amazon.
Day 6 (Night)
The women return to camp having just experienced their first tribal council, where despite the unanimous vote, the group remains divided between two groups based off age. The atmosphere remains awkward around the camp, with most of the women quietly getting in the shelter to avoid post-tribal discussions.
|“||Karyn left in a unanimous vote, but this tribe is far from a united force right now. It kind of came out in the open that before tribal council some of the younger girls were looking to change the vote, and I think both sides are ready to vote each other out.||”|
|“||I'm okay with Karyn leaving tonight, but I'm not going to lie and pretend that I wouldn't have rather seen Delma leave. What happened tonight is just a postponing of the war between both our sides. If we lose in three days time I won't mind, because it gives us the chance to take out these older witches...||”|
Delma and Veronica tend to the fire, quietly discussing their thoughts. Delma claims to be aware that the younger women were trying to turn the vote on them, warning Veronica that they need to know "when to lose" in order to remove the "cancer" from their group.
|“||Sometimes in this game losing challenges may be for the best. Numbers are important if you know those numbers can stick together, but at this stage if we were to merge or swap I think it's clear to all of us that Subira, Neasa and Jenn would switch over to the men. If we can cut some of them loose before then, I think we'd stand a better chance than if we were to start winning challenges.||”|
Neasa, Jayla and Subira sit in the shelter discussing their lives back home, in particular their family members they miss. Jayla spends time talking about her son Charlie, discussing her struggles as a single mother. Neasa opens up about her own experiences, telling both girls that she had become pregnant at the age of 16, and how the event caused her to become estranged from her Catholic family.
- I didn't know you had a kid...?- Subira
- I don't... I uh... (she tears up)- Neasa
- Oh s**t... (she puts her arm around Neasa)- Subira
Both women begin comforting Neasa, who has become particularly emotional whilst trying to tell her story. She eventually clears her throat, and explains that she lost the child during pregnancy, with the experience being the main driving force behind her move from Ireland to the United States. Both Subira and Jayla show their sympathy, with the trio reduced to tears over the story.
|“||It is hard talking about such personal things with people you've only known for a week. I put up this front that I'm an ice cold bitch, and nothing anyone says will ever bother me. Deep down I am someone who is hurting, and I've had so much adversity in life I sometimes wonder how I get up and keep going... but I do. I deal with my s**t and I move forward because I need to build my world back up around me. I'm bringing that kind of attitude into this game. We all deal with difficulty, but those of us that have dealt with more have an advantage out here... and I want these women to know exactly what kind of person I am, and how strong I can be... even if it means showing them my vulnerability.||”|
Edweena and Jenn sit in the tribes boat together, attempting to fish after several unsuccessful attempts. Jenn complains that the lack of bait will make the fishing harder, and continues to complain about fruitlessly trying when they should instead "look into other ways to get food".
|“||When I volunteered to go fishing today I was surprised and annoyed that Jenn decided to come with me. She's not all there in the head. I think she might have the mental age of a small feral squirrel. She complains about everything and does very little, both in challenges and at camp. Now that Karyn is gone it is no secret that Jenn is our weakest member, and if we're to lose again we've got to get rid of her.||”|
- I just think that we could try and win maybe... more food.- Jenn
- This is the Amazon... it's a river. There's fish in the river.- Edweena
- Yeah but we're not like getting anything.- Jenn
|“||Edweena doesn't like me. To be honest, none of the old women really like me, Neasa or Subira. There's a divide right now and we all know it, and if we lose again we hope Jayla will come to our side. I don't know why she'd go anywhere but with the younger cute people... she's nothing like Edweena, Veronica or Delma so I uh, don't see why she'd go with them.||”|
Back on land, Veronica and Delma spend their time collecting firewood, giving them a chance to talk strategy away from camp.
|“||Last night at tribal council a lot came to light. We found out that our tribe assumption that it would be an easy unanimous vote for Karyn wasn't completely true, and that there were attempts made to turn the vote on myself or Delma... I think it does show the way these younger girls are playing, and how careful we need to be moving forward. We need to toughen up and stop giving people the benefit of the doubt, because it nearly cost one of us the game last night.||”|
- We were dealt a lifeline by Karyn quitting.- Veronica
- Absolutely. Our necks were on the line. It was you or me for sure. Probably me...- Delma
- I just can't believe we were looking to keep us as a tribe safe, and they were ready to pull off a strategic move.- Veronica
- Women are crafty creatures... don't underestimate these young girls.- Delma
- I think we need to start getting Jayla. I thought she'd be more with us, but now I think she could go either way.- Veronica
|“||The game is heating up here at Jaburu. I think we knew this was always going to happen, and last night just put this game on hold. I'm ready to go head to head... I've done it in my day to day life, and I'm not scared of a challenge. I'll put a case to Jayla and show her why she needs to stick with us... I've never lost a case, and that's my track record. I'm not going to start now.||”|
The men continue mending and refurbishing their camp in order to keep it comfortable, with most of the men feeling as though their tribe has grown stronger over the past few days.
|“||Right now we're all feeling good about Tambaqui. We haven't gone to tribal council in a few days, and it doesn't look as though we'll be going anytime soon, especially with how well our tribe is working together around camp. Myself and Fredrick have an alliance going, and we're working with Hall, Isaiah and Mayson to vote out Kennedy should we lose again.||”|
Mayson and Isaiah stand chopping up firewood, whilst Kennedy and Fredrick sleep inside the shelter. Isaiah mocks Fredrick's snoring, jokingly referring to him as "sleeping beauty", much to Mayson's amusement.
|“||Things have really improved for me on this tribe since the last tribal council. Getting my way at the first vote was pretty important, because it's allowed me to integrate with the right people. I like pretty much everyone here... Kennedy don't like me much, but he's gone next so that's no biggie.||”|
- You think the girls have it this good?- Mayson
- Hell no... they're probably sat around eating bugs and crying, wondering where their cute factor went.- Isaiah
- Some of them weren't ever really that, uh... cute.- Mayson
- Neither were you man... (laughs)- Isaiah
Ceri and Hall sit preparing some fish for the tribe, overhearing Isaiah and Mayso as they speak. Ceri is seen rolling his eyes, becoming more infuriated with his tribe as each day goes on.
|“||If my time at college has taught me anything it's how to deal with lots of different personality types. I've become good at being patient around people who I might dislike, but because of circumstances you're stuck by them. Most of these men I don't gel with, especially Isaiah and Hall ... but I know if I want to stay long term in this game I'm going to have to make better bonds or else I'm going to be voted out pretty quick.||”|
Ceri begins to talk with Hall quietly, making sure those around them can't overhear the conversation.
- So uh, is the plan still Ken if we lose?- Ceri
- Yeah, course. I ain't really spoken game with anyone just because of how easy it'll be.- Hall
- And if we lose again after that?- Ceri
- I mean, will that even happen?- Hall
- I'm just worried because of where my vote fell last time.- Ceri
- I think you should be worried... but between you and me... I think Fred ain't the most athletic guy. I know he isn't. You can probably do puzzles just as good as he can, but the difference is you can run a hell of a lot faster too bro (laughs).- Hall
- So if it were to come down to me and Fred, you'd be on my side?- Ceri
- Absolutely bro... I mean only if you've got the numbers.- Hall
- I'd need Mayson and Isaiah... but I think you'd need to be the one to get them in check. All I can promise is I'll have your back fully... whereas Fred seems too comfortable to even consider giving you anything worthwhile. Just think about it... we'll talk more later.- Ceri
|“||Ceri is gaming quite hard right now. The guy knows he's in a bad spot because he made a terrible decision to side with his fake brother or whatever... and now he needs help from the big boys. I'm not surprised he came to me because I do have pretty good ties with everyone right now, so if he wants to stick around I am his best bet. My main loyalty right now is with Mayson and Isaiah, and we've got an understanding with Sheamus too... keeping the strong as one. I'll think about bringing Ceri under my wing and using him as my minion, because no harm ever came to someone with an extra vote.||”|
|“||It does give me a lump in my throat having to grovel to Hall of all people. But he's the least intelligent person in the group by a mile, and that means I can manipulate him into thinking keeping me over Fredrick and Kennedy is perfect for his game. I'm hoping if I keep throwing these ideas at him eventually one will stick, and once I'm at the merge I can work out a way to get past these buffoons.||”|
Later that evening, the men sit around the fire talking about controversial subjects, much to the disappointment of certain members. Mayson becomes particularly worried when the group gets on to politics, not wanting to draw attention onto subjects that could create divisions in the group.
|“||When the guys started talking politics I thought the same as Mayson, and I was ready to head back to the shelter because everybody knows one way to get into arguments is to talk politics or religion. But when there's someone like myself looking for a way to get deep in this group, a political discussion was a godsend in how to find cracks.||”|
- So you don't agree with the second amendment?- Hall
- No, I don't.- Isaiah
- Our right as a people is to bear arms...- Hall
- Okay, and it's resulted in the deaths of so many inner-city kids... senseless shootings. It's tearing communities apart.- Isaiah
- I don't know a single person who has used a firearm wrongly, or had one used against them.- Hall
- Try going Detroit or Chicago and talking to some people then... the black community especially has faced death after death because of how easy it is for these kids to get their hands on a weapon. It don't even take seconds to think and pull the trigger... so yeah screw the second amendment and them bloodclaat's that wrote it in.- Isaiah
|“||I'm a mouthy guy, I'll stand by that from today to the end of my life. I try and stay cool but I'm aware I got a temper on me, and when you got people saying stupid ass s**t, I gotta speak up. Hall got the fire going within me by spewing out he's ignorance, and didn't seem to think anything I said was valid because he hasn't seen it in his world. It pisses me off because I'm talking about something sensitive here. You know, my cousin was shot dead five years ago so it kills me to hear people say guns aren't an issue. He's lucky this didn't happen on a night of tribal because I'd consider voting his ass out...||”|
- No one agree with me on this?- Isaiah
- I support the second just because I don't trust the government...- Kennedy
- Of course...- Isaiah
- I personally would never own a gun, and don't think they should be in the hands of the public.- Ceri
- Lemme guess... half of y'all are gun-toting Republicans?- Isaiah
- I am a Republican, yeah.- Hall
- I am too, but I just want to clarify I'm not too happy with guns...- Fredrick
- I'm not really uh, political. I don't vote.- Sheamus
- You support the guns?- Isaiah
|“||I don't know why Isaiah got so defensive about the issue tonight. Maybe he shot someone back in the day and feels remorse (laughs). The guys such a hot-head. He's still my buddy but I'm going to always keep him at an arms length, because he's gonna explode one day and I don't need him taking me out with him.||”|
Each castaway will have a basket containing five items. The castaways must try to match one of their items with another castaway.
|Reward Challenge: Matchmaker|
Delma, Edweena, Jayla, Jenn, Neasa, Subira, Veronica
Ceri, Fredrick, Hall, Isaiah, Kennedy, Mayson, Sheamus
The seven women return to camp with their toiletries in hand, excited to finally be able to clean themselves up after a week without luxuries.
|“||If there's one way to a girls heart, it is through shampoo and soaps. What it means to be a woman is to look good and be attractive. I think I've got that all covered once I get this dirt removed.||”|
- You girls want to go and get cleaned up?- Jenn
- I think we should do it once we've got this firewood cut... Unless you don't want to eat later.- Delma
- Well I'm not going to get in that water when it gets dark so uh, I'm going now.- Jenn
Jenn gestures for Neasa and Subira to follow her, with the younger trio heading down to the shallow water in order to clean themselves. The remaining four tribe members stand around looking at one another.
|“||It is disappointing to have the younger girls constantly go off on their own and do whatever they want. There's a divide that they continue to feed, and I'm shocked at how blatantly they behaved today. The good thing was they left us with Jayla... which is exactly what we needed.||”|
- Sucks to be us then...- Jayla
- No oldies allowed. I suppose that makes you an honorary oldie Jayla (laughs)...- Veronica
- I guess so... it sucks because I don't think the three of them particularly want to hang with any of us.- Jayla
- You think they're quick to leave now, wait until we merge. They'll be over to the boys faster than a fat child gets to his dinner plate.- Delma
- It's a shame because yesterday I spoke with Subira and Neasa about stuff and I really thought they...- Jayla
- Look, you need to toughen up about it all Jayla. You're a sweet girl but you've got to see it how it is. It's those three together... and anything they do isn't because they like you, it's because they need your vote for whenever we lose next.- Delma
|“||I adore Delma. I think she's a very intelligent woman and she's someone I'm glad to be working with... but she has a habit of coming off forceful, and I accept it because I'm the same... but when you're dealing with certain personality types you've got to play things more carefully. When she snapped at Jayla with the harsh reality of our situation, I wanted to just put my hands over her mouth and keep her quiet because she'll do more to push her away than get her on our side.||”|
- But they'll argue the same thing... about you ladies.- Jayla
- But look at it this way hun, when this game started who did you spend time with. Who spoke to you and kept you involved before all of this silly game stuff took hold? We did.- Veronica
- Exactly. You and I made the fire together at the start... those girls joined up right away and it's only now they're reaching out.- Edweena
- Can we just... save any game talk for if we do lose? I am interested in speaking to you all, but right now I don't want to get into things if there's no need.- Jayla
|“||The more time goes on, the more both sides try to get my vote. I don't want to give anyone an answer at this point because I don't want to alienate three people needlessly... if I was to say yes to one side and then we don't lose, that's three people willing to vote me out. People like Delma are going hard in this game and it's rubbing people the wrong way... me included. I'm the only person right now on no one's radar, and I like being in this position... it's the safest place for me to be until we merge.||”|
Jayla and Edweena grab some of the newly won cleaning products, heading off to their own area of shallow water in order to freshen up. Veronica assures them that she and Delma will come and join them, but keeps Delma behind in order to talk over her abrasiveness. Delma apologises to Veronica, but tells her that they need to be forceful or else they could lose Jayla to "those closer to her age".
- I'm just saying, please can we keep things steady with her. She's sensitive and we need to make sure we're the comforting older mamas she needs.- Veronica
- Well we've got her with us now... If you and Eddie want to do the talking I'll take a step back.- Delma
|“||I need to make sure my passion for this game doesn't get in the way of my ability to move forward. Getting Jayla on side is the single most important thing for all of our games right now, because which ever side doesn't... one of those three will go home. I know if Jayla sides against us it'll probably be me leaving, so I've got the most to lose right now.||”|
The three younger women bathe in the shallow water, washing eight days of dirt off one another. The women compliment one another, enjoying the freedom away from the other members of the tribe. The girls discuss their plans for moving forward, agreeing that they should continue bonding with Jayla so that she will join their group. Neasa admits she is uncertain that the three of them leaving alone would be good for their goal, as it has left Jayla with the other women. Jenn tells her not to worry, feeling that leaving Jayla with the older women will just further expose how "annoying" they are to be around.
|“||I loved being able to clean myself up with my fellow hotties. When we got to the water we all just stripped down and were able to do things without the other women scolding at our lack of wrinkles ... and having our womenly parts firmly in place. Nease felt that it would've been a good chance for us to speak with Jayla more had we brought her along... it was a bit of an 'oh damn' moment when we realised we had left her behind. But I don't think a bathing session will be the difference between Jayla picking us or the old folk... (laughs)||”|
The men return to camp after losing the more relaxed reward challenge, all seeming in good spirits despite the loss.
|“||Losing today... I don't think any of us really cared much. I mean the girls look pretty stanky so I guess they'd rather have the uh... cleaning products.||”|
- I'm kinda happy they won. It means they gone look better at the next challenge and we can go back to checking them out.- Isaiah
- (laughs) Brilliant... even the gorgeous Jenn is starting to look a little worn out. And that's saying something coming from the fat and geeky Jew.- Fredrick
- I feel like me and Jenn had a special connection today... the way she asked if I had the shampoo... damn. (laughs)- Hall
|“||There is a lot of hormones flowing in the jungle. We've got a tribe of all men, and none of us swing that way, so the short amount of time we get to see the only women around... we don't take it for granted.||”|
- I'm thinking give it a few more days and even young Ken here will be getting some ass...- Hall
- Uh, I'll pass. It's all about the game for me...- Kennedy
|“||A lot of the guys on the tribe would rather hook up with the girls on Jaburu, and put any strategic play on the lower list of priorities.||”|
Sheamus, Mayson and Ceri head off towards the river in order to fish, leaving the others by the shelter. Isaiah teases Fredrick that they would have been better off winning the bathing products just to get away his "stank".
|“||The jokey atmosphere of our tribe right now is making it easier to deal with this game day by day. We're hungry, we smell bad and we're living it rough. But humour helps us, and our tribe has a pretty good bond.||”|
|“||Today has been one of the better days for our tribe. I think after last night I was worried I'd wake up and fight the bigotry that comes out of some of these guys' mouths, but instead we had a good bonding challenge that left us all feeling pretty good.||”|
Whilst fishing, Ceri talks about his nerves for the upcoming immunity challenge, pointing out that they are currently on par with the women when it comes to challenge success. Mayson talks about not feeling worried, as "all three" of them will be safe should they lose. Sheamus agrees, claiming once again that the only person who should be worried is Kennedy due to being the weakest player. Ceri talks about his position in the tribe, admitting that he hopes they will allow him to stick around and continue proving his worth.
|“||Ceri is extremely on edge when it comes to his place in this game. I understand why, but it becomes a bit annoying to have him continuously fight for safety when we haven't gone to tribal council in days. He knows Kennedy will be the next to go, and I think he just needs to relax more. He's a smart guy, and I think his overactive gameplay is going to rub some of us the wrong way, and take away all the good he does around camp.||”|
The remaining fourteen contestants head towards the challenge area, with Kennedy feeling the most vulnerable on Tambaqui, and Delma knowing she is at risk on Jaburu.
|“||I don't want to lose tonight, because I don't feel ready to have everything fall into Jayla's hands. I do think that Jayla likes my side more on a personal level, but I can see a perfectly believable outcome where myself or Delma leave tonight. Delma thinks it'll be her due to her recent clashes with Subira... and as much as I'd be grateful to stay regardless, I can't lose an ally this early on and find myself in the minority.||”|
|“||I'm ready for the challenge, and all us boys know it's time to take it to the women. We're the stronger sex, and we can't let them keep winning when they don't deserve to.||”|
Challenge: The Great Escape
Each tribe will be locked inside a prison-like cage. In order to escape, the tribe members must untie a series of ropes in order to release a machete. Then the tribes must use their machete to cut through a rope, then they must undo another series of knots in order to release a plank, which will in turn release a pole. They must use the pole to retrieve a set of keys on the outside of the cage. Once the keys are collected, they must unlock their chains and release their escape hatch. The first tribe to do so wins.
Information: For Tambaqui, Kennedy performs badly, costing his tribe time. However, Hall, Ceri and Sheamus take charge and lead the group through the challenge. For Jaburu, Jenn performs equally as poorly, becoming easily flustered. Despite Subira, Delma and Jayla performing well, the girls are unable to catch the boys, losing the challenge by a matter of seconds. Winner: Tambaqui
|Immunity Challenge: The Great Escape|
Ceri, Fredrick, Hall, Isaiah, Kennedy, Mayson, Sheamus
Delma, Edweena, Jayla, Jenn, Neasa, Subira, Veronica
The women return to camp, demoralised from their second immunity loss in a row. Jayla looks flustered, knowing she will now be forced to make a decision between the two warring sides of Jaburu, costing her relationships with the two that remain on the losing side.
|“||Losing the challenge was a really bad outcome for myself in particular, because I can no longer keep friendships with half my tribe. You hope people don't take things personally in the game, but I know one side is going to blame me for ruining their games tonight. So I need to ensure whoever I work with is the group I want to go to the end alongside.||”|
- I just want to say uh, I know you ladies will all probably want to speak with me today. I'm willing to have conversations, I just ask that I'm not drilled and asked to commit to anything until I'm ready.- Jayla
- That's fair...- Veronica
- Of course. I mean we know it's two groups fighting for you tonight so you let me know when you're ready to listen.- Subira
The women spend some time preparing their things for that evening, patiently waiting for Jayla to be ready to listen to both sides' pitches. Jayla spends her time talking about irrelevant topics, which the women try and involve themselves with, whilst all feeling somewhat frustrated at her hesitance to speak game.
|“||We're going to our most important tribal council of the game, and the girl who holds all the power is sat around talking about getting her hair done. I'm like girl get your damn head in the game there's a million dollars at stake and tonight you're about to decide who isn't winning it!||”|
Delma and Edweena sit by the fire together, making sure to leave Veronica with Jayla so that the younger women don't have an ample opportunity to strategize with her. The pair discuss which of the younger women to target. They quickly agree that Subira is the strongest of the three, and that Jenn is the weakest, leading Delma to push for the elimination of the latter.
- I agree that Jenn is annoying, and she's our weakest member. But maybe it's best to go for which ever Jayla feels the least connected to.- Edweena
- Maybe... but I feel someone like her needs to be led. I'd suggest Jenn when we speak with her, but if she feels she'd rather go somewhere else then we don't have room to argue.- Delma
|“||Jenn is by far our weakest member. She is terrible in most challenges we do, and around camp she probably does about as much work in a day that the rest of us can do in an hour. If we're to stand a chance at winning after tonight I think Jenn needs to go. My fellow golden girls feel that tonight we can't make that call, and instead we've got to go off what Jayla wants. If that's the case I'm happy to let her decide, because without her I'm leaving this game... but I also don't want to leave her without any direction so that she falls into the oppositions hand.||”|
After some time, Jayla agrees she's ready to speak with either side. In order to allow things to move smoothly, Jayla goes to each trio at separate times, speaking privately about their plans for the upcoming vote. Firstly, Jayla speaks with the younger trio, who assure Jayla that she fits in better with their group, and that the tribe would be more cohesive should Delma be voted out of the game.
- She has been going hard these last few days. She snapped at me a bit yesterday, and I think every time there is conflict she seems to be in the middle of it.- Jayla
- Exactly, exactly. She's a tough force, but I think she's the cause of all our friction. I also think Edweena and Veronica would be more forgiving than we think should she leave, because they seem to know what she's like.- Neasa
- Maybe... Out of them three I do think Delma is the hardest to get along with. If I was to side with you girls, can you offer me anything? I don't want to join one group and find myself at the bottom, you know...- Jayla
- Girl, you gone be on the bottom of any side you join. But if you come with us we're gonna go much deeper than with them. When we merge the guys aint gonna want to keep them around... it's the hotties and notties, and you don't wanna be siding with the notties (laughs)- Subira
- I think what we're saying is that if a swap or a merge was to happen, we'd stand a much better chance as a group of getting far with the guys. Integration will be key at this point, and those three wont do it as well.- Neasa
|“||I don't like having my game in someone else's hands. If I fail I want it to be because I failed, not because my allies weren't saying the right things. I think I'll be safe regardless tonight, but I'm worried for Subira and Jenn... they both haven't really played things as smoothly as I had hoped. In future I'm going to have to really coach people to say and do what I think is right, or else I'm going to be dragged into the gutter by the mishaps of others.||”|
Moments later, Jayla goes for her talk with the older trio, who immediately ask her who of the three younger women she would prefer to target. Jayla hesitates, before eventually stating that she feels less of a connection with Jenn and Subira, and finds Subira to be the least genuine of the three. Delma hints to Jayla that she is concerned about Jenn's challenge performances, particularly as the tribe will need to soon start winning to have a shot at merging with equal numbers.
- At this stage I don't know if I'm more worried about keeping numbers, or just some tribe harmony. I mean the stuff between you and Subira really got me on edge...- Jayla
- I understand that, and I more than anyone want to make sure this camp is as easy to live in as possible. Can I ask if they're voting for me?- Delma
- They are, yeah.- Jayla
- Well, I'd ask you not to of course. I feel we have an okay relationship. I'm not going to sugarcoat things and act like we're best friends, which I'm sure they're doing even though they've excluded us from everything they've done together. But I can say that if you side with me, you know I've got your back completely... and I'll owe you every ounce of energy I have in this game.- Delma
Jayla thanks Delma for her honesty, telling the women she will need some further time to think, admitting that she feels close to having made up her decision. The women gather their things, with both side having no indication whether Jayla will be joining them at the most crucial vote for the Jaburu tribe thus far.
|“||Of both sides... I do think the older women made the better pitch. There's conflict around Subira and her attitude, and there's trouble with Jenn and her lack of strength in challenges. They have been more consistent with me throughout the game, which is something I appreciate. My concern is that Subira had a point when it came to the long term goals in this game. If we do come together with the men, I'll be much more likely to stay in a good position should I be around the ... should we say... prettier model types. I don't know if the decision I've come to right now will be the same one I go forward with when it comes to writing down a name... but I've got to hope I make the right one for me and my son.||”|
At tribal council the women discuss the improvement of camp life since their last visit, but admit that the group is still very much split between two sides, with Jayla in the middle. Jayla talks about both sides pitching for her vote, feeling as though her game will either be made or ended with her critical vote. Jeff gives both sides an opportunity to make an argument for why Jayla should pick them over their opposition. Edweena does most of the talking for the older women, stating that Jayla has been "one of us" since the start, pointing out that the younger women didn't consider Jayla worthy of conversation until they realised her vote was needed. Jayla somewhat supports Edweena's argument, claiming that she hasn't bonded with the younger women as frequently, and they only began speaking to her about the game after Karyn was eliminated. Neasa claims this to be untrue, and simply due to the younger women not wanting to impose strategy when it wasn't needed, evoking laughter from Delma, who points out the failed switch-up at the previous tribal council. After more arguments have been made, Jayla informs Jeff that she has made a decision, hoping it to be one that'll strengthen both the tribe and her own game. Once the voting is complete, the women eagerly await the reveal, knowing that one of their games is about to be ended, and the two alongside that person forced into a minority position.
- First vote... Delma.- Jeff Probst
- Second vote... Delma.- Jeff Probst

Subira laughs and shakes her head, blindsided at both losing Jayla to the older women, and being their target over the physically weaker Jenn. Delma is seen to be particularly relieved, rubbing Jayla's shoulder in thanks. Subira refuses to acknowledge the older women and Jayla, instead wishing her two friends luck before departing the tribal council area. The remaining six women return to camp, with both Neasa and Jenn knowing they are now the minority in the Jaburu camp.

|“||You and I had a lot of run ins. You've got a bad attitude, but you wouldn't be my choice. Unfortunately for you it came down to what Jayla wanted.||”|
|“||Strong athlete, bad team player.||”|
|“||I'm voting Subira tonight because uh, I think you're quite game savvy... and you're someone who is just out for themselves. I don't get a genuine vibe from you, and I think when you're gone our tribe might get along better. I'm sorry.||”|
|“||You're annoying, bossy and I don't want to speak with you again.||”|
|“||I hope tonight that we get the numbers, because if not we'll have to deal with your wrath. I respect you as an intelligent woman, but I can't stand you as a competitor.||”|
|“||Bossy woman. You know I respect everything you've done in life, but for some reason you had an issue with me. Can't say I'll miss you.||”|
|“||Please, please, please... don't be here when I wake up tomorrow.||”|
|“||Being a strong athlete I didn't expect to be gone this quickly, but I guess I was too much of a threat. I wish Neasa and Jenn luck, because I know the other women are jealous of hell and they'll vote them out the second they get the chance. Jayla, you're a weak ass crybaby who made the wrong decision. I'm sorry that I didn't get further, but I'm happy I wasn't booted for sucking at surviving or anything.||”|
