A Lost Puppy Dog is the eighth episode of Survivor: Micronesia.
Being the Favorites outsider and Amanda keeping her word to Erik to keep him to the merge, Ami is sent home.
Challenge: The Gauntlet
One tribe member at a time would have to cross an obstacle course of stepping stones suspended by ropes, rotating barrels, a balance beam, a floating bridge, and a net to retrieve a flag. The tribe member would then have to cross back with the flag thus scoring a point for their tribe. Two tribe members would be assigned to run the course. Two other tribe members would try to knock the opposing tribe's runner from the course into a water pit by swinging canvas bags at them. If the tribe member fell off the course, they would have to return to the start and the other runner would have to make an attempt. The first tribe to collect five flags would win the challenge.
Reward: Pizza and beer delivered to the tribe's campsite

|“||(votes for Ami) Ami girl I love you, you just put yourself in a really bad position to where I don't see the rest of the tribe trusting so I'm going to go with you tonight, babe, love you.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) I don't even know what to say, Erik. You're a good guy.||”|
|“||(votes for Ami) Ami, you're an awesome, awesome woman. I'm sorry that I had to do this and that it had to come to this. What can I say, this game is hell.||”|
|“||(votes for Ami) My vote really is not going to count, I just don't want to cause any more conflict within the tribe and I believe they wanted to vote for you tonight you know, but I didn't want it to go this way but you played I guess too many cards and you talked to too many people, hopefully you don't take this personally.||”|
|“||(votes for Ami) You know I've wanted to trust you, it could have been so easy Ami. I don't see why you did what you did but you had to go blab your mouth and you basically double crossed me and tried to backpedal and it's not going to happen, sorry. Still love you.||”|
|“||It kills me that Ozzy and Amanda didn't trust me, that I'm not still there playing with them. The one day that I finally feel like I'm part of something is the day I get voted out. This game definitely plays tricks on you. You learn a lot about yourself, like I really need to keep my head up, I really need to stay strong. I'm blessed that I got to play this game twice.||”|
