Malcolm is hoping that this thing holds because it could be the best thing to happen to him in the game. Skupin is still uneasy because he knows Malcolm is a player.
It’s like I can feel the shadow of a knife in my back already.
Time for the immunity challenge. It’s another one that’s broken down by rounds. For the first round, each person will maneuver a buoy through a tangled rope. The first five to get through the first set of obstacles will move on. The next round will involve a balance beam, and the first three to finish this time will move on to the final round. In the final round they’ll head into the water and maneuver the same buoy through a series of obstacles there.
Jeff calls it simple in design but the difficulty lies in the execution. Malcolm is the first one through to the next round, followed closely by Penner and Denise. Skupin gets the fourth spot and we’ve got one spot left to go.
And it goes to Spicoli.
So Lisa, Scabby, and Pete are all knocked out in the first round. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Do we really even care who wins now? Oh, alright, I’ll tell you how the rest goes down.
Malcolm and Penner are out after the second round due to their subpar balance beam skills. So it’s down to Skupin, Spicoli, and Denise. The water obstacles are tough ones, involving swimming, sure, but also getting in and out of the water which as we know can be very difficult to do WITH a ladder, never mind without one.
It’s really close, but in the end
Spicoli pulls out a win.
Once back at camp everyone congratulates Carter on his immunity win and Pete and Scabby worry about the upcoming vote. The other six meet up to confirm that they’ll split the vote, and if Scabby doesn’t play the idol they’ll vote her out on the revote. If she does play it, it’s sayonara Pete. Sounds simple enough, right?
Well, Pete may be down but he’s not out yet. He wants to try and get just one person to vote for Malcolm since he’s the biggest threat and has an immunity idol to boot. Scabby works on Lisa because she’s had such a great relationship with her throughout the game.
Just do what I say, okay? OKAY? You know you want me here to tell you you suck. Come on Lisa!
Lisa admits that getting rid of Malcolm is not a terrible idea, but she’s not going to vote with Scabby and Pete because she’s not in an alliance with them anymore. So Pete tries to convince Spicoli.
After some careful thought on Spicoli’s part….
