One Pie Short to Shove My Finger Into is the sixth episode of Survivor: The Amazon.
Day 15 (Night)
The five members of new-Tambaqui return to camp after Jayla's blindside, with both women clearly feeling some guilt over their decision to side with the boys.
|“||This was by far the hardest vote I've had to make in the game so far. Jayla had saved me the last time we went to tribal council, but I felt tonight I didn't need to take such a huge risk to try and keep her in... especially now that we're striking up a deal with the three boys that can take us to the top seven.||”|
- I think what you ladies did tonight was the right thing, and now as a group we can take this game.- Hall
- Absolutely...- Mayson
- Yeah... it's tough, but we've got to see it as a positive.- Edweena
|“||We've gone through five rounds of this game, and I'm still here sitting pretty. People keep targeting me at tribal council, but none have been successful. I think it says a lot for how effectively I've been playing this game.||”|
Ceri and Mayson stay up to watch the fire, leaving the other three to sleep inside the shelter.
- If our predictions are right, and there is just one more challenge before the merge, then that means we just need to make it through this next round and we're there.- Ceri
- We'll do it... even if we lose.- Mayson
- If we do end up losing again, is it Delma or Edweena?- Ceri
- Uh, I'd say Edweena...- Mayson
- Same... okay, and you think Hall will be fine with that?- Ceri
- Of course. Don't get paranoid about it, the three of us are good.- Mayson
|“||With only five people left on our tribe, it feels as though there's really nowhere to hide should we end up losing again. Hall and Mayson swear that as a three we can stick together, but I don't know how useful that will be for me. The men never truly considered me apart of their group, and I'm always going to be the bottom of their alliance. Thankfully, Delma and Edweena are both here, and if I need to I could approach them and take control of the next vote.||”|
Veronica sits alone by the fire, cutting up the tribes wood and preparing their morning meal, whilst Fredrick goes to collect tree mail, and the other four lay inside the shelter. Jenn is seen rubbing Isaiah's head, with Sheamus giving Neasa a back massage.
|“||It pisses me off to be up early every morning working my butt off, and having the four fittest young people laying around flirting with one another. It makes me nauseous because our hygiene is far below average here, so how they can want to be so close to one another I'll never know.||”|
- Do you have a girlfriend back home?- Jenn
- No...- Isaiah
- I don't believe you...- Jenn
- Why would I lie?- Isaiah
- Because guys lie about these things...- Jenn
- Well, I ain't lying... you're good to be with me. Ain't no one going to be waiting to break your arm when we're back.- Isaiah
|“||A lot of mine and Neasa's energy is being put into flirting with Isaiah and Sheamus. They're the kind of guys that like female attention, and at this point we've got them on our side so that if we lose Veronica is absolutely getting voted off.||”|
Fredrick returns to camp, reading the tree mail to his tribe members. Jenn complains that the reward doesn't sound like "proper food". Veronica becomes irritated, telling the tribe if they want 'proper food' that they should consider getting up and fishing. Isaiah questions Veronica's tone, who in turn voices her frustration over doing a majority of the work alone. Sheamus apologises to Veronica, telling her that in future he'll be sure to get back to working around camp.
|“||There is a more relaxed atmosphere at Jaburu than at Tambaqui, so us guys are enjoying time socialising and relaxing rather than spending all our time working. Veronica is older, and has that mindset that socialising can wait. I think she's become fed up with us today, and I feel awful to have made her feel like that... so I'll be sure to keep pulling my weight around here. Unfortunately, I think Veronica is continuing to create a wedge between herself and the rest of us, and she knows that her time here will end if we don't win all the remaining immunity challenges until the merge.||”|
Mayson reads tree mail to the tribe, who similarly feel disappointed to hear the reward isn't as substantial as they thought. The tribe prepare themselves regardless, wanting to show the new-Jaburu tribe their strength by winning their first challenge as a new group.
|“||What I want right now is a good steak or something. Maybe a burger with fries and onion rings. We're so bored of eating the same stuff over and over out here man... and when it just says about spices I feel kinda mad, because that ain't what I'm after.||”|
- Imagine a nice juicy steak right now. Mash on the side... ugh.- Hall
- Can we stop talking about food, my stomach can't take it.- Edweena
- Pasta... pizza... anything big right now with a cold beer.- Hall
- Stop! I swear you're like a disobedient child sometimes...- Delma
|“||(laughing) I do like winding my tribe up, but I don't think they take it serious. I'm just voicing my desires, and all my desires right now are food.||”|
|“||We're all hungry out here, and Hall needs to make sure that his jokes and badgering of others doesn't get him in more trouble. Delma and Edweena like him, but the more hungry people get the more irritable they become... and I don't need him losing our allies because he couldn't shut up about rib eye.||”|
Challenge: Log Jam
The tribes will face off in a log-rolling competition. The first tribe to win five matches wins.
Reward: Spices, fruits and vegetables.
The group return to camp having won the reward challenge, giving the tribe an array of spices, vegetables and fruit to add flavour to their repetitive/bland meals. Isaiah tells the tribe he will cook them an evening meal with the newly won spices and vegetables, but first insists the tribe go to the shallow waters to bathe.
|“||(laughing) I honestly said that we should go wash ourselves off because we went in that funky water during the challenge, but I think the others got the impression I just wanted to see the girls in their swimwear... which isn't a bad sight at all.||”|
Isaiah, Jenn and Sheamus walk down to the shallow water, with Neasa convincing a timid Fredrick to join them, leaving Veronica alone in the shelter.
|“||I am being a horrible bitch towards Veronica, and I am excluding her from our group activities. She's a sixty year old woman and if she wants to bathe she doesn't need an invitation, but I'll be damned if I'm the one who invites her down. She was cold and bitter towards myself and Jenn for the first two weeks of the game, and I owe her nothing now that the boys are here.||”|
Down in the shallow water, the five present Jaburu members take turns washing one another, enjoying their post-victory morale. Neasa washes Fredrick's Afro for him, with Sheamus jokingly asking if she will take bookings for "future appointments".
- You boys are lucky... just think, you could be bathing with Delma and Edweena right now...- Jenn
- I'm counting my blessings...- Isaiah
- But we're lucky too... we've got the three cutest guys here too.- Neasa
- You don't have to lie to make me feel better... (laughs)- Fredrick
- No, you're hot Fred... you've got a brain and a shy thing going, and girls love it. I love it.- Neasa
|“||We're going to flirt ourselves into oblivion if we keep going, but the boys seem to really be taking to us. Fredrick is slowly coming around too, and we've got a nice group of five going here. I am worried that I might become blinded by attraction... to Sheamus that is... seeing him wash his perfect manly body... it's what a girl needs after sixteen days.||”|
Later that night, the tribe enjoy their meal prepared by Isaiah, ending what has been a pleasant day for a majority of the tribe. Sheamus & Neasa, and Isaiah & Jenn are seen spooning as the group sleep in the shelter, with both Fredrick and Veronica either side of the pairs on their own.
|“||Today has been the best day of this game for me, and I'm super glad to have spent it with this group of individuals. Fredrick and even Isaiah are two guys I get along really well with, and both Neasa and Jenn are really connecting with us. Veronica, for all her faults, is a valuable member of the team. I feel that this new tribe is more important to me now than the old Tambaqui tribe... and now I don't know if our initial plans of an all-male alliance is going to hold up once we merge.||”|
The Tambaqui tribe return to camp having lost their second straight challenge. The group appear demoralised, worried that their losing streak will continue in the next immunity challenge. Ceri and Edweena go down to the shallow water to clean themselves off, whilst the other three put their things away in the tribe shelter.
|“||We lost today, and I think we're startin' to worry that we might be a bit s**t at challenges as a new group. The other tribe has two strong guys, and two strong girls. They're younger and more athletic. Our tribe just ain't like that, and this challenge just wasn't playing to our strength. We're heavier, and we can't balance as well.||”|
- I'm not gonna pretend I'm okay with losing, but I ain't shedding tears over no spices and vegetables. That weren't much of a reward.- Hall
- Still, it would be nice to have won.- Delma
- Yeah, it always is. But my mum struggled to get me to eat vegetables as a kid, and you'd struggle to get me to eat them out here too.- Hall
- I just hope it's a different result for the next one.- Mayson
- It will be, I'm confident. They're lighter on their feet than us, but we've got the strength. Ceri and Edweena are our weakest but I think we can outmatch them.- Hall
- You say they're the weakest, but they both won a match-up today, and you lost both of yours. The only person to lose both was you... (laughs)- Delma
- Well, Ceri was against Fred... who I'm not being rude, but isn't the smallest of guys. I was against Isaiah... the guys a dancer so he just danced my ass off the roller.- Hall
|“||I don't know if Hall is complete aware of the rubbish he talks, but it's probably down to some sort of toxic masculinity. He's very much the wannabe alpha male, when he really doesn't fit that role too well. I do have a soft spot for him, but it is tiring to put up with him when you're physically and mentally drained.||”|
Ceri and Edweena wash themselves in the shallow water, talking about their frustrations over losing a second challenge, feeling as though Hall isn't as strong as he perceives himself to be.
- I just find it funny how he's always talking about how lucky we are to have him, and how it's him, Mayson, Isaiah and Sheamus that are the most physical here... but in nearly every challenge he has unperformed.- Ceri
- It's extremely irritating... and every time we lose he acts apathetic to it all, as if it's no big deal because he's responsible.- Edweena
- If I was to say right now who is our weakest player, I'd hesitate to name anyone but him. Physically, mentally... and in terms of cohesion... he's a thorn in our side.- Ceri
- I can't say I disagree.- Edweena
|“||Hall isn't a bad guy, at least not towards me or Delma since we've arrived here. If anything I think he's made us feel welcome in a natural way, and has made the effort to try and help us in the game. But, he is a difficult person to live with, and I do think if he were to leave next our tribe would have a better time getting along.||”|
- And now it's just getting me paranoid, because if we keep it up as a group we'll lose again at the next challenge, and then one of us has to go.- Ceri
- (sighs) and it's a shame because then I see the gender divide coming into play.- Edweena
- Well, I'm not so sure. I know Hall and Mayson are about keeping us as three guys, but I'm here doing my own thing, and if we have to vote I would be open to working with you and Delma... even through to the merge.- Ceri
- That's good to hear because I think we've both been worried ourselves... hopefully it won't come to it, but if it does I pray that we find a way through.- Edweena
|“||I don't want to bite too early, but I'm letting Edweena know that if we were to lose the next challenge, that I am willing to work with her and Delma to get through to what I believe will be the merge when there are ten of us left. Hall leaving would be the best thing for me, because it frees up Mayson to be a close ally of mine, and removes the most irritating person from the game||”|
Sheamus, Neasa and Isaiah go off to fish, leaving the others to sit around the fire, having already collected enough firewood the previous day. The trio sit somewhat silently, struggling to muster up conversation between themselves.
- We're lucky to not have got much rain...- Fredrick
- Yeah...- Jenn
- ... Can't wait to get back to eating something other than manioc.- Fredrick
- ... Huh? Oh. Yeah, same.- Jenn
|“||I got left at camp with the two people who I have the least in common with, and time just dragged. Talking with them at times can be like pulling teeth.||”|
Jenn eventually stands and heads back to the shelter, telling the two she has decided to take a nap. Once they are certain Jenn cannot hear them, Veronica and Fredrick decide to speak frankly about their feelings on Jaburu.
- Well, I bet you're glad to have been included in their little soiree yesterday evening.- Veronica
- In the shelter? I wasn't in on that... I was on the other side sleeping.- Fredrick
- (sighs) ... I had the misfortune of being next to the kissing couple.- Veronica
- Huh? What!?- Fredrick
- Neasa and Sheamus... they kissed last night... I'm sure of it. When you get to my age that's the last thing you want to be hearing.- Veronica
|“||So, according to Veronica... last night, my supposedly close ally Sheamus decided to break all logic by kissing Neasa. It's like in those mythical stories when the succubus tempting the man to his doom. I feel that all Sheamus' loyalty and devotion is slowly going to be devoured by Neasa, and that leaves me in potentially big trouble. I might have to go behind his back and get Neasa out of here, but right now I don't see how I can do that... not with just mine and Veronica's votes.||”|
- I can't believe that... I mean I can believe it, but I'm just shocked they'd both be so stupid.- Fredrick
- That's the nature of some people.- Veronica
- I want us to all get to the merge now, and if we do that couple is going to be a problem.- Fredrick
- You'd consider voting for one of them?- Veronica
- I'd consider voting Neasa out, yeah. But I can only do that if we merge... if we lose tomorrow, I don't see a situation where it would work.- Fredrick
Jenn sits up, calling over to Fredrick to ask him to bring her some water, ending the conversation. Fredrick nods to Veronica, telling her they'll talk more later on, before heading over to the shelter with Jenn's water.
|“||I am glad that I shared what I saw... or heard... last night. I think it's important that the tribe see how dangerous a pair can be in this game, especially one that is romantically linked. If we don't break it up, that is something that could go all the way to the end of this game, and right now I can see both the couples on this tribe getting to the end unless the rest of us do something as soon as we can.||”|
Out on the boat, Neasa and Sheamus sit quietly as Isaiah teases them about their new found "friendship". The trio catch several fish, continuing the successful performances of the new-Jaburu tribe in and out of challenges.
|“||Neasa and I, we've become close quite fast out here. I'm not saying it's anything more than harmless flirting, but we definitely have each other as allies at this stage. It's nice to have someone you can be close with strategically... and in other ways (laughs and blushes). I am concerned that we could become targets for how close we've gotten, but that's why we've got Isaiah and Jenn aligned with us... and I've also got my partnership with Fred. So honestly, I think my bases are covered.||”|
Delma and Ceri collect firewood together, talking briefly about Ceri's proposal given the previous day. Delma tells Ceri that Edweena has informed her that all hope might not be lost, and that he has considered voting with them should they lose again. Ceri confirms this, telling Delma that he wants to look out for the "good of the tribe", rather than sticking to a gender divide.
|“||Ceri has effectively told myself and Edweena that if we lose again, he'll be voting Hall or Mayson out. I presume Hall, because it's clear to everyone but Hall that Ceri doesn't like him very much. The good news with this is that if Ceri is genuine, then myself and Edweena can make it through to the merge. If Ceri isn't being completely honest, then we may be at risk, because then we'll have to try and create chaos so that the boys turn on one another. I'm sure Hall wouldn't be too happy if he knew Ceri was considering voting him out, and if that information were to get out then it's almost a guarantee that a boy will leave next.||”|
Back at camp, Edweena speaks with Mayson whilst Hall takes an afternoon nap. Edweena and Mayson talk about their nerves concerning their challenge performances as a group, with very little optimism remaining in the Tambaqui tribe.
- If we do end up losing, would you guys pick between myself and Delma?- Edweena
- Uh, it's tough... but I suppose so.- Mayson
- Right.- Edweena
- I think our deal still holds up, but if we lose we've got to prioritise...- Mayson
- And the women are the bottom of this new alliance?- Edweena
- Right at this moment... it's going to be difficult because none of us want to go.- Mayson
- Okay, I just wanted to know where we stood.- Edweena
|“||Mayson confirmed to us that if we were to lose, that either myself or Delma would be going home. At least that's what he thinks. Ceri and I have already spoken, and right now he's off with Delma letting her know the same plan, and we'll just have to tell Hall or Mayson that we'll pick who to "prioritise" between them.||”|
- I hadn't expected things to go down to gender again, but maybe I've just been hearing wrong.- Edweena
- Why? What have you heard?- Mayson
- It won't matter if we win tomorrow, and we should keep that as our priority...- Edweena
|“||Edweena is understandably mad, because she knows if we lose tomorrow that it'll probably be her going. The three of us guys are sticking together, and because it's the consensus that Delma is a stronger player to have by our side... we'll be voting Edweena out. She'll no doubt try and stir the pot and not go down without a fight, but I think myself, Hall and Ceri can stay strong and not let paranoia get the better of us.||”|
Later that evening, the tribe sit around the fire talking about their feelings towards the Jaburu tribe, wanting to prep themselves for a possible merge.
- If they lose, I think it's clear they'll vote out Veronica. That's a shame because she is someone who would work with us, but obviously I'd much rather it was her than one of us here.- Delma
- I'm thinking that we should go after Neasa or Jenn first.- Hall
- Absolutely...- Delma
- Neasa is an extremely intelligent girl, so I'd say her... Jenn is just her sidekick.- Edweena
- They're both crafty young women... after them who would it be?- Delma
- Sheamus and Fred...- Mayson
- I mean, however we look at it we can all get to the top six now. If we lose one of us has to go, if not then we lose Veronica...- Hall
- And either way we keep the numbers...- Ceri
- It's all working out good for us... I just hope, as you ladies said... that it's Veronica going, because I don't know that broad.- Hall
|“||Sitting down and properly discussing our plan of action as a tribe really gave us clarity on how this game will go from here. We've realised that as a new alliance we do hold the complete power regardless of what happens, and those sitting comfortably on Jaburu should be worried because they'll be the first ones picked off when we merge. Personally, I'm thinking losing tomorrow could be good for us, because we'd vote out one of the boys once they collapse in on themselves... and I get to keep Veronica out here, who was my closest ally and friend on the original Jaburu tribe. I'm beginning to believe that I could actually win this game, because everything is perfectly falling into place.||”|
Both tribes receive treemail informing them of their next immunity challenge. With the tribes predicting an upcoming merge, they remain eager to avoid tribal council, wanting to guarantee themselves a place in the individual portion of the game.
|“||I'd hate to lose today, because it means we send home Veronica, and I'm one pie short for me to shove my finger into... Wait, let me rephrase that (laughs). I need options for the merge, and Veronica is a good person to have around should I need to get rid of Neasa, which I can't do right now due to the numbers on our tribe. So far Jaburu has been performing well, and I don't want us to slip up now, because it will seriously damage my future in the game.||”|
|“||If we win or lose today, it isn't the end of the game for me. At least I don't think it is, unless I'm being played and I do get voted out. But my intuition is good, and I see us winning and keeping our five together, and I see us losing and keeping my close ally Veronica in the game. Once again, I'm not too concerned about losing...||”|
Challenge: Piranha Feast
Both tribes have ten minutes to rip shreds of meat from a hanging slab of beef and place it into a basket for weighing. The tribe with the heavier basket wins immunity.
|Immunity Challenge: Piranha Feast|
Fredrick, Isaiah, Jenn, Neasa, Sheamus
Ceri, Delma, Edweena, Hall, Mayson
The Tambaqui five return to camp having just lost their third straight challenge, confirming that one of them will become the sixth person voted out of the game. Edweena wipes tears from her eyes, and is quickly comforted by her tribe.
- Don't cry...- Delma
- It's just... frustrating... to keep losing...- Edweena
- I know, but it's not your fault.- Delma
- It's no ones fault today. We all did fine... they just had more meat.- Mayson
|“||We lost again today, and we know that tonight someone else has to go home. Mayson and Hall will be voting for myself or Delma, and it means that everything comes down to who Ceri votes for.||”|
Mayson and Ceri stand together checking the tribes fishing lines, giving them a chance to finalise their votes before heading off to tribal council. The pair talk about their sadness over consistently losing, feeling as though they've had it tougher than their counterparts.
|“||This will be my fourth tribal council out of a possible six so far, and it is annoying to know that there are people on the other tribe who only went to two of those tribal councils. We've had to dodge bullets constantly on Tambaqui, and tonight is the biggest bullet to dodge, because after this we should be going into an individual game. I've been playing as an individual for a while now, so the merge is perfect for me. But first, I need to make sure tonights vote goes Hall's way. Hall has been a disaster to be around, and if we can get him out tonight then it'll unite us as a four for the merge, and make it easier to bring others in without alienating anyone because of Hall's personality. I did want to let Mayson in on my intentions, because I don't want it to be a shock for him tonight... if he's as surprised as Hall will be then he'll be angry, and I can't have him angry at me and cause him to side against us at the merge.||”|
- So we're voting for Edweena tonight...- Mayson
- I uh, you're going to hate me for this. But, I'm not voting Edweena tonight. I'm going to vote Hall...- Ceri
- What!?- Mayson
- I'm sorry, but I just can't keep living with him. He's been difficult to be around for this whole game, and I can't take him into a merge with us when it'll just put targets on our group.- Ceri
- (sighs) Please, please tell me this isn't serious- Mayson
- It's serious. It's nothing against you... it's just him, and I wanted to tell you before it happened because I don't want you to be surprised.- Ceri
- I am surprised though... (nervously laughs)- Mayson
- I spoke about it with Edweena and Delma already, and they're happy to go through with it. It's happening... and I just hope you can be in on it too, and we go forward as a four.- Ceri
|“||Ceri and I were talking, and I figured it was going to be a standard pre-tribal council talk, confirming that Edweena was the vote. Suddenly, he drops this huge bombshell that instead he's going after Hall. It's precisely what I didn't want to happen, because Hall has been annoying everyone... and now it's going to get him voted out. I don't want to lose him, because he is my strongest ally in this game, and I think Ceri is being a lot more cutthroat than any of us gave him credit for... So I'm going to need to look into an alternative plan for tonight.||”|
After returning to camp, Ceri speaks with Delma and Edweena, telling them that he's still happy to vote for Hall, much to their happiness, glad to be saving themselves from what seemed like certain danger. As the trio talk, Mayson approaches Hall, deciding to warn his friend that he may be heading home.
- I just spoke to Delma, she said she won't vote for Edweena, but gets that she's going...- Hall
- She's lying...- Mayson
- What do you mean?- Hall
- She's voting for you... and so is Edweena... and so is Ceri, he just told me.- Mayson
- What? Ceri is voting me? You're lying bro...- Hall
- I'm not. He just told me now, he's voting you and so are the girls... If one of them doesn't change, you're done.- Mayson
|“||I was sitting pretty in this game, and now I'm being told that my game may be over tonight because of a snake called Ceri. He's a spineless, two-faced little s**t! He's gone around this camp as a weakling without any friends, and I took him by my side because I felt bad, and he's repaying me by trying to stick a knife in my back. I'm so disgusted by him right now. I want him out of this game, and I'm going to fight dirty to make sure that he is out of here.||”|
Delma returns to camp alone, checking her bag by the shelter as she arrives. Wasting no time, Hall leans over and attempts to talk to Delma, wanting to try and change his fate at the upcoming tribal council.
- You voting me, D?- Hall
- Uh, I am.- Delma
- Why!?- Hall
- Because... I said I wouldn't vote for Edweena.- Delma
- Would you vote Ceri?- Hall
- Why would I vote Ceri?- Delma
- Because he's trying to get me out tonight... I want him gone, and I'm needing you and Edweena to help me do it.- Hall
- (laughs) So now it's not about girls vs. boys?- Delma
- C'mon... you and I were friends... I thought you and I got on the best, and now you're all siding with Ceri because he's trying to control you all. He's slimy. He acts like the sweet kid but the guys a complete liar.- Hall
|“||Ceri let Mayson know that he's voting for Hall, and now Hall knows and is on a rampage. It's amusing how the two guys who were sure that Edweena was leaving are now begging me for my vote.||”|
- Why should I vote him out though? If you both know about it all... then you're aware he was the one trying to help us out tonight, and now you want me to vote for him.- Delma
- It's just how he did this whole thing, it was messed up. I can't work with him if we merge after this... him staying breaks our group apart...- Mayson
- And he has no one over there... No one to pull in and help, whereas it's me who gets on the best with Isaiah, and without me he'll stay with Jaburu.- Hall
- So you're saying what? If I don't vote Ceri that we're all finished?- Delma
- I'd struggle to work with you guys, yeah...- Mayson
- (laughs) Okay kids...- Delma
Mayson and Hall continue to plead with Delma, telling her that to vote out Ceri would solidify their foursome, bringing in Isaiah and Veronica to create a majority at the merge, with the threatened alternative being Mayson "joining Jaburu", and losing any chance of gaining Isaiah's support. Ceri and Edweena arrive back at camp with a selection of worms to be used as bait, immediately sensing an awkward atmosphere. Mayson begs Hall not to cause a scene, telling him to "act oblivious" to Ceri's plan. Ceri privately asks Delma if they are "still good", which she assures him they are, before she leaves with Edweena.
|“||This vote just got a whole lot more complex, because now I'm being threatened by Doctor Mayson and his henchman. I like all the boys, but I do find them somewhat tedious. On a personal level, I get on less with Ceri, because he is so young and we have different lifestyles... and I'd be happier to spend some time with Mayson and Hall. Strategically, Mayson is making threats that if Hall leaves then we will be picked off early, which I find quite pathetic and childish, but it's the reality of this situation. I'm in two minds, because Ceri came to us first and if it wasn't for him Edweena would be leaving tonight... and I feel we owe him our support. But to side with him could be what causes us to be sitting ducks at the merger.||”|
Delma quickly explains to Edweena that Mayson is making "threats", which causes Edweena to become frustrated. Edweena explains that she'd prefer to vote out Hall, wanting to repay Ceri for helping them, but Delma seems doubtful, not wanting to make a move that won't benefit them in the merge.
- So what do we do...? I don't think it will be the end of our games.- Edweena
- But do you want to even take that chance?- Delma
- (sighs) I don't know...- Edweena
At tribal council, the five members talk to Jeff about their seemingly disastrous performance as a new tribe, being down to four members after their second tribal council. Asked about how the vote will go, Delma explains to Jeff that initially it was going to be "men versus women", but now feels that neither her or Edweena will receive votes.
- Why are you so sure of that?- Jeff Probst
- Because from what I understand the people on the chopping block tonight are Hall and Ceri...- Delma
- Wow... Ceri, big reaction from you there.- Jeff Probst
- Yeah... I didn't realise my name had even been mentioned.- Ceri
- So this is all new information to you?- Jeff Probst
- Absolutely. I'd like to know who is voting for me...- Ceri
- ... Me. Don't act surprised when you're the one who came for me first, bro.- Hall
Ceri laughs at Hall's comment, telling him that he is doing what he feels is best for the group, but Hall claims this is a lie and a "selfish" decision on his part. Mayson talks about the breakdown between Hall and Ceri, admitting that it was difficult to see. Edweena and Delma talk through the pitches made by either side, claiming they need to decide between what is best for their games and what is best for the group. With much of the conversation centred around Hall and Ceri getting repetitive, the group agree to get to the vote, wanting to end the awkward atmosphere they find themselves in. Once the vote is complete, Jeff brings the urn back, with Ceri seen taking a heavy sigh, nervous that he may have overstepped the mark by attempting to make a move against Hall.
- First vote... Ceri.- Jeff Probst
- Second vote... Ceri.- Jeff Probst
- Third vote... Hall. That's two votes Ceri, one vote Hall.- Jeff Probst
- Fourth vote... Sixth person voted out of Survivor The Amazon... Ceri, that's three, that's enough. You'll need to bring me your torch.- Jeff Probst
- Wow... (laughs)... Wow...- Ceri
Ceri shakes his head, taking his torch over to Jeff, ignoring an attempted hug off Edweena as he does so. Hall smiles, glad to have survived yet another tribal council, nodding to his tribe members to show his gratitude. After his torch is snuffed, Ceri turns to his tribe members to offer them some parting words.
- Ladies, you made a game ending decision here... because they're not going to have your backs... the Sole Survivor is NOT sat amongst you. Good luck.- Ceri
- (laughs)- Hall
Edweena puts her head down, clearly feeling guilt over their decision to oust Ceri. Jeff tells the tribe that if they wish to survive they'll need to up their games, as with only four people left they're facing an uphill battle. The four return to camp, hoping that by voting Ceri they have grown closer, and guaranteed themselves a majority at the expected upcoming merge.

|“||I'm so tired of hearing your voice, seeing your face, and living with your smell. I hope the women have a sense of intelligence and vote you out tonight.||”|
|“||Sorry to do this, but I have a better relationship with the other boys, and they can offer me a better deal after the merge. Thank you for the lifeline.||”|
|“||Ceri, I am so grateful to have you try and help me, but I'm going with the numbers tonight. Words can't describe how sorry I am...||”|
|“||You've got no loyalty and you better go tonight because it's exactly what your rat self deserves.||”|
|“||Nothing personal, but you came after my closest ally. I respect you, and you're a bright young man... but as a player I can't stick with you.||”|
|“||Ugh, I'm so disappointed right now in myself. I had a shot to make the merge, and I think I could've gone deep, because I had okay relationships with most people up until today. I guess I thought too highly of Edweena and Delma, and they ended up making this bonehead decision. I stick to what I said, no one from Tambaqui is winning, and I'm happy with that, because none of them deserve a million dollars.||”|
