Adam and Parvati go off together as she tells him how pissed off people are about Jonathan’s display. Is it a crack in the alliance? Parvati talks to Becky and Sundra about how Jonathan revealed a lot about himself. Parvati says if Jonathan gets to the final four, she’ll shoot herself.
Parvati tells us that she’s hoping the game could get flipped on top of its head once more. Um, can she do math? Does she understand that even if the Aitus vote out Jonathan now, they still have four and she still has three? That’s not flipping the game on its head – it’s just delaying her demise for one vote.
When Adam and Parvati leave, Sundra and Becky talk about how they really dislike Jonathan a lot. Really? This is a surprise? Sundra says people don’t like to see those like Jonathan get ahead – he’s too arrogant.
Yul joins the discussion and agrees that Jonathan’s true personality is coming out. But then Jonathan walks up and joins them. He tells us that he knows something is up, but he’s not sure what.
Let’s go visit Candice on Exile Island! She cries about how tough it is to keep going there over and over again. Kinda makes you think you shouldn’t have mutinied, eh, Candice? She just wants a hug. Awww. Gag.
She does think she’s next on the chopping block and needs to win immunity. She wishes she wasn’t feeling so down.
Speaking of immunity, treemail arrives. The clue talks about how they need to remember key moments in the game – their past will affect their future. Adam tells us the challenge is important to him and he doesn’t like what Jonathan stands for. “He’s just a dirty, dirty rat.” To get revenge against Jonathan and remain in the game, Adam feels he needs to win.
The tribe arrives at the challenge and Candice is brought back to them. Ozzy waves goodbye to the immunity necklace and Probst explains the challenge. They will be quizzed on how well they recollect the events of the last 30 days. On go, they will read four questions that give answers in the form of numbers. They will then add, subtract, or divide the answers to come up with a final number. They untie the corresponding box to search for a key, which unlocks a pin that, when pulled, raises a flag. First three to raise their flags move on to the final round (yikes – I thought for a moment he was going to say the first three get immunity!). But no, just the winner of the final round wins immunity.
And they’re off! What is the total number of pieces used to construct the stepping stones for the fifth immunity challenge? Yeesh. What is the number of plaster boxes to be smashed with a club in the challenge to win the catalog reward? What is the number of days since the Aitu tribe mutinied, including today? What is the number of people currently in the jury?
Jonathan, then Ozzy, then Yul think they have the right numbers and start untying bags. Parvati does likewise. Jonathan finds that he was wrong – no key. Same with Ozzy. But Parvati gets the key and raises her flag with a squeal.
Adam finds a key. So does Jonathan, and Candice. Jonathan and Adam raise their flags, but Candice is just seconds too late.
The final round is a bit more involved. There are more questions and then the key unlocks a timber tunnel that they have to crawl through before running over a series of floating pontoons. Then they raise their flag.
And they’re off again! What is the number of immunity challenges so far, including this one? What is the number of Survivors at Tribal Council during the lamb shank feast? What is the number of underwater flags in the barrel-rolling competition? Adam is the first to come up with an answer, but is he right? Yes!
Parvati and Jonathan are looking, but Adam is already in the tunnel. Jonathan is wrong, Parvati is right – but it’s way too late. Jonathan is out of the tunnel and onto the pontoons. He has to crawl over them but he makes it and raises his flag. Adam wins immunity!
Back at camp, Candice tells us it looks like her number is up, and she’s upset that Jonathan will get farther than her in the game. Um, Candice, that could be because Jonathan has actually been playing the game while you’ve apparently believed you’re on The Bachelor.
There seems to be a group discussion about Jonathan. Yul wants to know how Adam and Parvati think it helps them for Jonathan to be voted off. They say it doesn’t, but it would give them peace of mind. Then Jonathan returns with the day’s fishing catch and it suddenly gets quiet.
Yul says Adam, Parvati, and Candice had approached him to appeal to his sense of integrity and vote off Jonathan first. But he tells them he knows how Jonathan behaves – he’s selfish and rational, and he can predict what Jonathan will go for. The three of them note that they will be on the jury and Yul should consider that. “If you get rid of Jonathan first, we’ll vote for you.” Hmmm. I don’t know if I believe them, but that’s a powerful negotiating tool. But Yul says it’s not that simple – if they change things up now, it will have other ramifications.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
