A Smile, Velvet Gloves and a Dagger in My Pocket is the twelfth episode of Survivor: Fiji.
Challenge: Hungry For Love
Each contestant has ten minutes to rip shreds of meat from a hanging slab of beef and place it into a basket for weighing. The three players with the most meat on their plates all win reward.
Reward: A flight to one of the most beautiful places in Fiji followed by a river raft through the rainforest. The winners will dine on a big lunch. The first placer also gets an advantage at the next Immunity Challenge.
Winners (in order of finish): Boo Bernis, Dreamz Herd, and Yau-Man Chan
|Reward Challenge: Hungry For Love|
|Weight of Mud||8.9 lbs||6.0 lbs||5.8 lbs||5.3 lbs||5.0 lbs||4.3 lbs|
The seven contestants must dig in a marked lane for three climbing steps. First two move on. Those two (and Boo) must slot the steps into provided holders around a 12-foot pole in the water, making a pseudo-staircase until they can get on top to grab a flag.
Additional Stipulation: As the winner of the Reward Challenge, Boo would skip the first round of the challenge to instantly enter the second round.
Winner: Boo Bernis

|“||I played this game to the best of my ability. I gave it 110 percent every single day I was out here. For all those kids out there who think their situation is hopeless, remember to never stop dreaming, never stop fighting. You can and will amaze yourself. I think the six remaining members are living in a dream world if they think they won't have to backstab each other. Things are going to get very ugly.||”|
