#Survivor begins after Tribal Council. Jeff V is thrilled that he didn’t get one vote even though he thought he was going home after the channel. He tells the tribe he’s loyal to them and knows he’s got to kiss their asses to stick around. Tasha tells Woo that Jeff, not Peih-Gee, should have been sent home. She says Varner is the source of all the contention around camp and tells Woo he’s not going to be sent home. Abi tells Tasha she has a problem with her talking in private to Woo after he just voted against her.
Varner says that he can’t trust Abi and she’s very unpredictable and paranoid. Woo says he’s sorry that he wrote her name down and she tells him she’s taking this personally since he’s voted for her twice. She wants him to go home next. Sun rises at Bayon on Day 10 and Jeremy finally gets to look at his immunity idol he picked up at the challenge. Jeremy and Stephen talk about where to find the idol. Jeremy doesn’t want to tell him he already has it so he plays along and acts like he’s still looking for it.
Over at Angkor, they talk about the camp being a hell hole because they have no shelter or anything. Varner goes to try and fish. He says it’s a Survivor ghetto. He found one snail. Then they get tree mail about a reward challenge and hope they can win some food but Woo says they are all so hungry they may not be able to compete well. Jeff greets the three tribes and tells the others that Peih-Gee was voted out. They have to race into the water, get a sandbag and race back.
They will launch these into the net – they have to get three into the net. First place gets a BBQ set including meat and veggies. Second place gets a smaller set. Last place gets nothing. Jeff says each tribe has to pick one person to do the challenge – it’s a hero challenge. Angkor puts up Savage. Jeremy does it for Bayon. Ta Keo puts up Dietz. The challenge starts and they all make it back with their first one and Dietz lands one in the net. Savage overshoots it as does Jeremy. Jeremy scores one.
Savage lands one and he heads back out. They are all after the second bag. Savage is lagging way behind. Dietz misses by a lot and has to reset. Jeremy is back and misses too. Savage gets back as the other two miss again. Savage lands his second and heads back for the third followed by Dietz then Jeremy lands a second too. Savage heads back with the third bag. Dietz starts to run. Save runs too. Dietz misses. Savage lands it and his hungry tribe is thrilled. They hug on him and he’s exhausted.
Jeremy is back and now it’s a struggle for second. Jeremy misses. Dietz tries and lands it. That leaves Bayon with no food from the reward challenge. Jeff asks what this means and Tasha cries and says they haven’t eaten in days and Andrew did this for them with pure love. They had back with their BBQ gear. Ta Keo gets their smaller consolation prize and Bayon is sent back empty-handed. Savage says he feels very vindicated having won that for his tribe.
Back at Angkor, the tribe all salutes Savage as they set up their dinner. Woo cooks the meat and Savage says he’s so happy he could deliver for them. They eat and Abi says they are so winning immunity after this. Savage says after this, they can win and avoid going back to Tribal. Next day, at Ta Keo, the tribe is lazing about and Kass says you have to do something different when you come back. She says she didn’t play a good social game back then and focused too much on strategy.
Kass says she read How to Win Friends and Influence People and says she doesn’t want to be #ChaosKass. Kelley sees Kass cutting beads off her bag and wonders what she’s up to – then later she sees her on the beach and Kass waves her away. She thinks she’s being sneaky and making a fake idol. But what Kass was doing was making her a birthday present. Kass says she’s really trying to embrace her second chance and says if she can make an idol, she can make a gift.
Over at Ta Keo, Spencer knows he and Kelly W are in trouble. Fish asks if he would vote her out and he says yes and tells Jeremy and Fish that she has a tight bond with Woo and several others. Monica thinks he may be lying and she thinks he’s sneaky. She wants to stick together with the women to consider a girl’s alliance. He says he has trouble trusting Kelly W. Monica wants Spencer to go home first but she plays along with what he’s saying.
Now it’s time for the #ImmunityChallenge. Jeff welcomes them and takes back the two idols. One tribe member calls while the others are blindfolded and they have to collect large, heavy puzzle pieces. Once they have them all, they take off the blindfolds and put the puzzle together. Bayon sits out Monica. Ta Keo sits out Ciera. They start. Ta Keo pulls ahead with three pieces. Angkor also has three then Bayon too. Angkor pulls into the lead. Bayon gets their fourth. They have 16 pieces to find.
Joe grabs one on his own and staggers back without Kass’ help. Ta Keo is falling behind but Joe keeps on grabbing things. Savage is worn out. People are getting hit, poked, tripping and injured all around. Joe gets Ta Keo into the lead. They are all on their last piece. Joe and Dietz bring back their last. Angkor is back too. They both start the puzzle. Bayon also has theirs. They start building the giant puzzles. The pieces are large and heavy and it’s exhausting them as the sun glares down on them.
Varner drops a piece on his feet and curses. Angkor has fallen behind. Bayon is getting close and they put the last piece in and win it. Now it’s a second place race. Ta Keo slides their last piece in and that wills end Angkor back to Tribal for the second time in a row. Bayon and Ta Keo get their immunity idols and are sent back to camp. Jeff asks Savage if they gave out and he says they were all just exhausted. He says it’s scary and he’s ready to fall over and just can’t think.
Jeff says he’ll see Angkor tonight at #TribalCouncil. Back at Angkor camp, they stagger in tired and wounded. They all agree they did their best. Savage says the good feeling from the full belly of food is gone. Savage says it’s the most physical challenge he’s ever been in. Varner says his pinky toe is killing him. Tasha is worried about Abi being unpredictable in their alliance. Savage and Tasha don’t want Varner talking to Abi. Varner and Woo talk about who will go home. Varner says he thinks it’s him.
Varner says Abi has turned on them but he has saved Abi twice and has never voted for her so he hopes he can get her to keep him. Woo talks to Abi and she says she’s glad to be wanted and the others make her feel comfortable. Woo says they need her and says they can take out Varner. She says he hasn’t voted against her but Woo has. She says she understands the numbers but won’t listen to him. Woo says she has a thing against him. Abi talks to Tasha who tells her Varner should have been gone already.
Tasha is annoyed that Abi is fixated on Woo when he can help them win challenges and Varner can’t. Tasha tells her that Varner is a big liability but Abi says Varner has proven his loyalty to her. Abi tells her she’s thinking. Abi says Woo isn’t loyal to her. Tasha says Varner is very manipulative. Varner tells Bi he loves her and misses her and says he misses his #AbiTime. Tasha talks to Savage about Abi wanting to get rid of Woo. Abi says she has to decide winning challenges over trust and loyalty.
The Angkor tribe shows up at Tribal with their torches. Jeff asks Varner about the cane. He says a big piece slammed down on his foot – he’s walking with a cane. He says it drains him but he wants to play for the fans who voted him there. Woo says Varner know they are on the bottom and says he can outlast Varner. Abi agrees it’s those two. She says she hasn’t made her mind yet because Varner has been loyal. Savage says Varner hasn’t helped with challenges and Woo is a beast at the merge.
Woo says he’s an asset now and Varner is not. Then Varner says he’s not a physical challenge to them. Woo says he will stay loyal with the alliance. Varner says he voted for Abi twice. Varner says he’s been loyal and says Tasha has been closed off because she thinks he’s crafty but says he trusts her and is loyal. He tells Savage they are both old school and has been loyal to Abi and adores her. He says he hopes she repays that to him. Jeff says it was a good pitch and she agrees.
Tasha says in order to win, they need strong people and that’s Woo. She says it’s loyalty vs physical ability. Abi says he voted against her. Wu says he’s willing to get on board and says Varner can flip on them because of his ties at Ta Keo. He says he’s playing the game hard and he’s looking out for the better good of the group. Varner says he’s proven he’s loyal. Woo promises he will stick to them. Jeff says wow and says he loves the fight and that no one wants to give up. Varner asks if they can vote.
Woo tells Abi he promises that he will stay loyal. He asks her not to vote him out. She tells him not to write her name down. Woo writes down Varner’s name. Varner votes Woo but says he rocks. We don’t see the other votes. Jeff goes to count the votes then calls for an immunity idol. No one plays one. The votes are: Jeff, Woo, Jeff, Jeff. They actually got a clue and sent home the guy who can’t walk. Varner calls Abi a little bitch, but does so affectionately and kisses her cheek.
Jeff snuffs his flame and he’s out of there hobbling on his sprained foot. Woo tells Abi thanks. She says you’re welcome. Jeff says if you make the right vote you can come back to camp stronger and more united. He sends them back to camp. Varner says his passion for the game has been cooking for 15 years and says he got what he needed coming back there and was happy to play again.
