#Survivor starts with the tribe coming back to camp on night 29. Tai tells Jason he almost played his idol and says he asked Auby. Jason says he can preach when he needs to. Jason talks to Michele and Cydney about how Tai and Aubry will be hard to beat at the end.
Michele doesn’t want to put doubt in her alliance yet and that’s why she voted out her ally Julia. Tai, Joe and Aubry talk about sticking together and tells them about his extra vote that he can use at the next vote and then says he’ll use the idol at the council after that.
Aubry is stunned. Tai says no one can do anything if they stay tight and says Jason and Michele are on the outside. On day 30, Tai shows them a big grub he found and says they might have to eat one in a challenge but says he wouldn’t eat it. He gives it to the chicken who grabs it up.
#MarkTheChicken is happy to have the grub. Jason says everyone loves the chicken and he’s given up hope of eating it. Jason is upset that no one will play with him and he can’t find a way in. Joe comes over to talk to him and tells Joe no one is playing the game anymore.
Joe thinks Jason has no respect for anything that doesn’t go his way. Joe says Jason just likes to bulldozer people. Joe decides to be lazy and eat without helping since he knows they’re targeting him. He hopes that will get them to keep him around because they think he can’t get votes.
It’s time for a water-based #RewardChallenge. They play in teams of three and race through obstacles to a floating maze and they have to move three balls through the maze. The reward is a trip to the Wildlife Alliance rescue sanctuary. They’ll get a picnic and animal encounter.
It’s Joe, Aubry and Cydney vs Tai, Michele and Jason. Jason and Joe are in first. Joe falls behind. Michele is in the water while Joe is still working. Tai is in the water and Joe is still crawling to his spot. Cydney is in the water but they are way behind. Tai unties a ball and they start.
Aubry hops in the water. They have to walk around the edges of the floating platform to tilt it and move the ball around. The other team has their first ball now too. The blue team gets one ball in and runs to get the second one. Joe, Aubry and Cydney are stuck.
The blue team sinks a second and they go for their third. The yellow time finally sinks one and Aubry runs for the second ball. Jason, Tai and Michele are on their third ball as Joe, Cydney and Aubry scramble to check up. Blue sinks their third and they beat them soundly.
Tai, Michele and Jason win it and they swim in, grab their stuff and head out. Joe, Aubry and Cydney head back to camp with nothing. Tai is excited and says he loves animals but is worried about what might happen at camp while he’s gone.
The others are back at camp and they get a fire going. He’s upset at how bad he performed at the challenge. Cydney is annoyed that Joe keeps making her get up when she just wanted to eat some coconut. Aubry says it’s been a long day.
Aubry thinks Joe wants to burn the damned place down with this super fire they don’t need. Aubry hopes Cydney doesn’t blow up their game. The others are at a hut eating and an elephant walks out. Michele goes to meet it and touches his trunk.
Tai and Jason pet the elephant Lucky. The director says the elephant was found alone wandering without her mother. Jason says his daughter has autism and she loves animals. Jason feeds the elephant watermelon. He says his daughter will love this.
Next they go into a monkey enclosure and one pounces on Jason’s shoulder. Tai says he’s glad Jason is there so his daughter can see this. A monkey hugs him and one climbs up onto Tai then one on Michele. Tai is thinking about voting out Michele who wants Jason out.
Now it’s time for the #ImmunityChallenge and Jeff takes the necklace back from Michele. Hey have to hold a rope that keeps a wobbly table upright. They have to gather blocks that spell out immunity and stack them to show the word without losing control of the table.
They all start with one block and let their ropes out to get back to the block table. Joe takes an early lead. Joe gets his second block and then Michele and Tai. Aubry is next then Jason and Cydney is last. Joe gets a third then Michele and Tai.
Jason and Aubry are close behind and Joe moves for his fourth. Joe is halfway done and still in the lead. Tai almost drops his and recovers. Jason is moving along slowly. Joe loses all of his and has to starts completely over and Michele takes the lead but drops.
Tai is in the lead. Aubry drops. Jason is close behind and then Tai drops. Jason takes over the lead. Cudney is now in second. Joe puts down the wrong block and has to reset. Jason is in the lead and then loses all of his blocks and has to restart which puts Cydney in the lead.
Joe misspells again and has to go back again. Cydney is still slow and steady. Michele is picking up the pace and so is Aubry. Tai is back in it too. Joe misspells again. Aubry overtakes the lead as Michele drops all hers. Tai drops and then Aubry. Cydney is back in the lead.
Cydney has two blocks to go and now Jason. Cydney now puts up her seventh and has one to go. Jason places his seventh. Jason gets his last block and starts to come back. Cydney is coming back too. They are going slowly. Jason places his and heads back.
Cydney heads back. Whichever gets back wins it. Jason’s stack falls. Cydney is a few feet from it. She gets both feet on the mat and wins immunity. She’s thrilled. Jason is not happy at all. It’s day 32 and they talk about the challenge.
Tai wants to take out Michele instead of Jason. He talks to Aubry, Joe and Cydney about Michele.Joe wants to get Jason out and then Michele comes to the water so they can’t talk anymore.
Michele is certain they’re targeting Jason. Tai plans to use his extra vote against Michele. Tai tells Aubry that Michele is a bigger threat and she agrees. Tai then tells Jason to vote Michele. He says he can’t trust him and wants to vote Joe so isn’t sure what he’ll do.
Cydney talks to Joe and they both want Jason gone and agree Tai has his own agenda. Joe says he’ll do whatever they want. Cydney says Tai can’t intimidate people and she doesn’t like it. Cydney goes and tells Michele that Tai is gunning for her and Aubry is with him.
Michele is surprised and Cydney says she’s trying to get them off her back and go for Jason. Michele knows she’s on a tight time limit and decides to try and do damage control at Tribal. Cydney tells Aubry she doesn’t like Tai dictating to them.
She says she’s been through that before. Aubry thinks that Michele needs to go but Tai didn’t present it democratically. Aubry isn’t sure what she’ll do. Aubry tells Cydney that she thinks Michele is a bigger threat. Cydney asks who she’ll side with. Aubry says she’ll decide at Tribal.
It’s time for #TribalCouncil. The jury comes in – Neal, Nick, Debbie, Scot, and Julia. Jeff says there were so many lead challenges at the immunity challenge. Jason says this has been unpredictable. Jeff asks if she had any sway with the immunity.
Cydney says some people were dictating decisions. Michele says it was Tai who has told them he has the idol and an advantage. Tai says the alliance talked and everyone has a voice and an opinion. Cydney says it seemed like Tai’s way or the highway.
He says he wanted to talk to Cydney alone but he didn’t get to talk to her. Aubry says she thought things got talked through and thought they were all worked out as a group. Michele says they all said who it would be for the alliance.
Tai says there’s a big group then a smaller group. Michele says she’s being excluded and he thinks he’s sitting pretty with two idols. Jason laughs. Tai says they had a different idea and Michele keeps pecking at him. Jeff says this is more than a difference of opinion.
Tai says he would not like it if he was in Michele’s position. She says Tai has turned on every alliance he’s ever had and she’s been loyal. She says if you want to go crazy, go with Tai and he’ll screw you over. Tai says he doesn’t know how Michele got into the alliance.
They bicker and Jason keeps laughing. Tai calls her an extra person. Aubry says she can’t control what Tai says and she has a different style of play. Jason says it excites him with Michele and Tai fighting and says it’s fractures in the concrete.
He says he may go home tonight but knows who will follow him next time. Jeff calls for the vote. Tai votes for Michele. No other votes are shown. Jeff goes to tally the votes but Tai says wait then says he wants to use his advantage.
Jeff asks him to explain and Tai says he gets to add another vote. Jeff agrees that’s what it is and says go cast your second vote. Tai votes for Michele again and says she’s got to go home. Jeff goes to count the votes. He comes back and calls for idols.
Tai doesn’t play his idol. The votes are – Jason, Michele, Michele, Jason, Joe, Jason, Jason. He’s out and Jeff says there’s five left and not enough room in the raft for all of them. Jason says he’s eben watching Survivor 15 years and still loves it and is proud of the way he played.
