Challenge: In the Barrel
Three members of each tribe will be tied together. The fourth will be inside a barrel. They will roll the barrel to a series of flagpoles. At each flagpole, the person in the barrel must unspool a rope to collect a bag of balls and get back in the barrel. Once each tribe has collected all three bags of balls they will then race to roll those balls and attempt to land them in a series of targets. The first two tribes to land balls in all 6 targets will win reward.
Reward: Rope and tarp (also comfort items with refreshments waiting at camp for first place).
Winners (in order of finish): Ta Keo and Angkor

Voting Confessionals

(voting for Kelly) I really hate putting your name down, because I think you'd do amazing if we'd let you go any further.


(voting for Spencer) Sorry, Spence, you're a good guy but I gotta go with the numbers on this one.


(voting for Kelly) You invented the phrase, "I didn't come here to make friends," and yet, you got more than I do on the other side. I hope I did my job of convincing this tribe that that is the case.


Final Words

I'm a little shocked, but I'm okay. I really wanted to stay in this game a lot longer. I didn't expect myself going out this early. You never know what to expect. I guess you can say I was officially blindsided. I feel like my second chance was a bit of a disappointment. I don't know what I could've possibly done differently. It's tough, but you know what? It's a game and you just pick yourself up after you get voted out.
