We started tonight’s episode of Survivor season 35 off with everyone talking about last week’s Tribal Council and Ben and Lauren talking about her secret advantage and how she was able to pull it off. Devon and Ryan are walking and talking and Ryan tells Devon about his immunity idol in an attempt to give him some hope that they will be okay in the game.
It is time for the reward challenge and they will be broken up into teams of 5 for tonight’s reward challenge. They are competing for time on a private yacht and they will be eating sandwiches, they will have drinks and chocolate cake. The castaways have to dive for balls and then pass them to their team mates on a platform and they will shoot them into baskets. The first team to make five baskets win. Mike, Joe, Chrissy, Cole and JP pull off the win.
Back at camp, Ryan talks to Ben and tells him about the immunity idol. When everyone gets back from the reward, Joe is managing to get on everyone’s nerves. Specifically Ashley’s and he is quickly putting a target on his back. Ben and Devon are talking about who they want to take after they rid of everyone other than their core seven. Ben tells him that he wants to take him with him and Ben tells him that Ryan has an idol, which Devon already knew. Problem is, Ryan kept telling Devon that he was the only one who knew. Devon doesn’t think he can trust Ryan now.
It is time for the immunity challenge. In this challenge they will be squatting holding two bars on their shoulders. If they go too low a flag will pop up, if they go too high, an urn will fall. They will be out if either of these happen. Mike, Ashley, JP, Devon and Joe are all out. Then Ben, Chrissy, Ryan and Cole. That means that Lauren has won immunity this week.
The castaways get back to the camp and everyone is talking about splitting the votes, Ashley is told that she should vote for Cole, but she wants Joe gone. Mike has decided that he wants to stir the pot by using his idol on someone, but who will he choose to use it on? Ben seems to think that he is running the show and starts telling people who they should be voting for. No one is happy about this and most of them want to see Joe gone, but will they go against Ben?
It is time for Tribal Council and for the first member of the jury to come join them. Desi walks in and the Tribal Council starts. They are all talking about how everyone it trying to paint Joe as the bad guy, but no one wants to vote him out. Then they are talking about how voting someone out this week needs to set them up for the weeks to come, which makes Cole nervous because he is an immunity challenge threat according to Ben. Which means that the target is on his back. It is time to vote.
The votes are in and tallied, first Mike is playing his idol for himself. The votes are as follows: Ben, Mike, Mike, Cole, Cole, Cole, Cole, Cole and with that, Cole becomes the next member of the jury!
