At Kalabaw Jonathan already senses that he’s in trouble and so he is in the hunt for an immunity idol. He looks everywhere that he can think of and so far….nothing. Then he thinks it has got to be in camp and remembers that there was a box sitting there waiting for them in camp that had a bag of rice in it. He just knows it’s got to be there.
A clue! A clue!
The clue doesn’t help much, just tells him that it’s somewhere at their beach. Under their nose. He is excited, but knows he still needs to find it.
At Matsing, Russell Swan totally lucks into finding the clue when he offers to cook up some rice. He’s pretty slick about hiding it right away, but later Zane spots him reading the clue and concludes that Russell has the idol. Of course he must immediately tell all nine hundred of his alliances.
Zane asks Russell point blank if he’s been looking for an idol and Russell says no way. In fact, if he thought someone had it Russell would vote their ass right outta here!
Does that mean he secretly wants me to vote him out?
The whole conversation does not convince Zane that Russell doesn’t have the idol. He is now more convinced than ever that Russell has it. If they lose, Russell is toast.
Immunity challenge time.
This one is no joke. Each tribe is going to be divided into three pairs. The first pair will be tied together and race into the jungle, up a cargo net and collect two paddles. They’ll race them back to their team where the next pair will use the paddles to race their boat out to a buoy. There they have to dive into the water and swim down to release a chest and swim it back to shore. The final pair will open the chest up to get pieces for a puzzle that they will need to solve in order to win.
But before we get to it Jeff explains that the first two tribes to finish will win immunity PLUS tribe one will win a tricked out firemaking kit and tribe number two will win flint. The losers will get nothing but a trip to tribal council.
This year’s immunity idol looks like some sort of tribal turkey or something.
Before the challenge begins each tribe is given a few minutes to strategize and decided who will perform what part of the challenge. Russell being the non-leader that he is, assigns his tribes their roles, completely ignoring Angie when she says she’s not good at puzzles and assigning her to puzzles. Roxy tries to speak up but he is having NONE of that.
As your non-leader, I command you to shut the fuck up and do what I tell you to do!
