As the show opened, Russell was laying and talking about how he thinks his game is a work of art and he is creating a Picasso.
Laura and Monica are talking about Russell and saying he is a snake and can’t be trusted and how they underestimated him.
Shambo andRussell are kidding around about Laura and how dumb she is/was. Shambo said she overheard Laura at tribal council saying that Russell has screwed up all their plans.
Russell is up early and wabdering around looking for the HII. Shabo has a 6 pack of names she says Laura is worthy of being called. Russell checks with Shambo to be sure their alliance is still good.
The challenge has 4 people pulling on ropes to control the fifth person who is on a swing. They must get the person on the swing maneuvered around a ring a grab 15 flags and place them in a log in numerical order.
Yellow Team has Shambo, Jaison, Monica and Mick on the ropes with John in the swing.
Purple Teak has Dave, Brett, Russell and Laura on the ropes with Natalie in the swing.
As they get started Purple takes an early lead. They get a 2 flag lead when yellow knocks a flag out and has to fix it. Giving Purple a bigger. Purple is close but Laura is so close to falling out of her swing that Jeff says she needs to hold on. She is hanging by her legs but manages to stay on and give Purple the win.
The reward is a plane trip to another island that has a lake with a waterfall and a picnic. Jeff gives them a Palm Pre phone from sprint to take pictures. The picnic has hot dogs, pie, fruit, sodas, etc., etc, ….. As they are eating Russell notices there is a clue about the HII in the memos on the phone. It’s another clue to the HII idol, after they check out the clue there is also a short video showing that the HII is hidden under a rock.
Back at camp, Jaison and Mick are trying to talk Monica into voting with the FF4 because they have 5 votes and only need 1 more to evict their choice. Monica thinks Shambo is the FF4’s extra vote but the guys won’t verify that.
The challenge is a two part game. The first part they must throw a lava rock at some plates. They each have 3 plates and for everyone they break they earn an arrow for part two. They each get one throw.
Monica, Shambo, Russell, Natalie, John and Laura all miss. Shambo laughs when Laurs misses. (GEE Sham, let us know how you really feel)
Jaison, Dave and Monica (gets a shot because Dave broke one of her plates) each get 1 shot. Brett broke 2 plates so he gets 2 shots.
Brett up first hits the 2ndring of target. Jaison misses. Monica hits the target in the fourth ring,she is out. Mick hits the target in the 2nd ring and closer than Brett and takes the lead. Brett now gets his second shot. He hits the target but is outside the 2nd ring, Mick wins Immunity.
Back at camp the manuvering begins, shambo lets John know she is voting for Laura and no one else. John is pissed when he learns his cohorts are playing with his game life. The Galuwhiny butts are trying to figure out a way to cross up FF4. The send Monica over and try to get them to vote for John in a backstab, but intend to vote out Natalie. Russell tells John what they are up to and say they are still voting out Laura. It Looks like a tie is immenent and tell John that if a tie andthey go to a second vote if he switches he will remain in the game and they will help him.
After Jeff’s questions to get them riled up as usual they go to the vote.
The FF4 and Shambo vote 4 Laura …… the G5 vote for Natalie .. It’s a tie!!!
If the second vote is a tie, they go to the rock pull.
Vote 2 is at 4 for Laura 3 for Natale (laura and Nat get no vote in 2ndvote) the next vote is for laura and she becomes the 9theviction of the season. It turns out that John changed his vote to laura and now she is gone.
Dave was simply amazed at the turn of events and Eric was supperhappy and said there goes the lead!
Next week: Russell is at his games again and sets the chickens free.
