Previously on Survivor: Alan is trying to break up the power couple of Ashley and JP but Krissy is navigating her way to the top. Cole helped Joe find an idol while the Hustlers lost the immunity challenge. While Patrick was being annoying, Simone is voted out because she didn’t bring anything to the tribe.
Hustlers: Ryan is talking to (name) about how Ali should be trusted and Lauren will be the target. Lauren is scared that she’s on the outside because everyone is in a similar age range while she’s the mom. Although she is a target, Patrick still has a bullseye on his back. Everyone is a bit scared of the comment he made at tribal about him not trusting some people. Ali still wants to work with Patrick because he’ll be a number but is afraid of the bad social game he has at the moment. He’s been acting really suspicious as Ryan thinks he is looking for an idol. Patrick confirms this as he doesn’t hide this fact at all. Ali acts as his PR manager and tells him to be better in the tribe.
Heroes: Chrissy is in the prime place with Ben as the rest of the four have to work with them. They’re deciding who would be the best target: JP or Alan? Alan is a hot head while JP is clueless. Well, one thing is for sure, Ashley definitely wants JP around. Currently, he has become the provider and Ashley thinks he looks good while doing it. She tries to campaign to Ben about the value that JP has. This backfires because now Ben thinks Ashley and JP could be in a power couple.
Healers: Currently, the Healers are the best functionally tribe. They have great chemistry with each other and a winning streak. Joe is happy because he has everyone thinking Mike has the hidden idol. The one thing he’s worried about is Cole and Jessica hanging out too much. She’s crushing hard with Cole and the feeling is mutual. In fact, Cole reveals that Joe actually has the idol, not Mike. Well, Jessica is ecstatic that she knows Joe’s secret. So happy that she gives him a kiss on the cheek (insert sitcom laugh track woohoo sound). Cole isn’t happy that Joe has the power so he decides if the Healers go to tribal, they’ll blindside him. Then he word vomits to Roark that Joe has the idol which Jessica is a little pissed at. He should have talked to Jessica instead of telling someone else.
Immunity: The immunity challenge involves each tribe to race through a series of obstacles. They must grab sandbags to knock over blocks then solve a puzzle using those blocks. Besides immunity, the first tribe to win will win chickens while the second tribe to win will get some eggs. The last place will go to tribal council.
Every tribe is close at first until the Heroes get a slight lead. While Ben is knocking over blocks, Patrick and Cole come right behind. Ben switches with JP to keep their lead. Joe comes in while Patrick continues for the Hustlers. Patrick is slowing down while the other two tribes get all of their blocks down. He finally gets the block down while the other two tribes are making progress. The Healers think they have it right but one block is left out. This gives the Heroes and Hustlers more time on their puzzle. While the Heroes get first place, the Hustlers fail to win as the Healers comeback for a second place win.
Tribal: Patrick is disappointed in himself because of his performance with the blocks. He acknowledges that Lauren is pissed off at him. It becomes awkward between them as they talk about the challenge. She’s upfronted that he knows that the target won’t be him. He tries to say no but according to her, gingers aren’t good at lying. Once again, it’s up to Devon and Ryan to decide who will go home.
At tribal, the discussion turns towards Patrick performance at the challenge. Lauren is pissed because she could have done it. Ali spins this as a hypothetical situation because who knows if they would have won. Talk turns to Patrick publically trying to find an idol and Patrick tries to spin it as Lauren was trying to find it as well. Devon will vote on fixing the chemistry in the tribe. The voting ends up blindsiding Patrick as he’s the latest castaway voted out.
