A Thoughtful Gesture or a Deceptive Plan is the twelfth episode of Survivor: All-Stars.
As Chaboga Mogo returned from Tribal Council, they realized that heavy rainfall had reduced their fire significantly. When the castaways gathered for a challenge, they were shocked to hear that it would be for reward and immunity. The castaways were given a taste of the videos from home. The teams for the challenge were Alicia Calaway, Amber Brkich, Rob Mariano, and Shii Ann Huang versus Jenna Lewis, Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien, Rupert Boneham, and Tom Buchanan. Alicia's team took an early lead and won the reward. Rob quickly solved the puzzle to slide his knife out, and chopped the rope to raise his flag, winning immunity. Rob chose to forgo seeing his video so everybody could receive letters from home. After everyone finished reading their letters from home, Kathy attempted to break the Chapera Alliance by telling Rupert and Tom that Amber, Jenna L., and Boston Rob wouldn't allow anyone else to reach the final three. In the end, Kathy's efforts to break the Chapera alliance failed, and she was voted out 6-2, becoming the second member of the jury.
Reward/Immunity Challenge: Big Bad-O Course
The challenge comprised of two parts:
- Team Reward: This is an obstacle course that will be done in two teams of four: Toughnut, balance beam, commando crawl, ten-foot wall, blown bridge, wooden ladder, two-rope hand-overhand traverse, three players climbing down into a jail cell and digging for a flag, signaling the player still on the platform, who rides a flying fox to grab a key, unlocks the jail cell, and the whole team runs to the finish.
- Individual Immunity: The winning team must solve a simple sliding puzzle. First to finish wins.

| VOTED OFF:|
|“||(voting for Amber) Amber, same old vote. You need to play a new game or else you're not going to make it. See you later.||”|
|“||(voting for Kathy) Kathy, I don't discredit you for trying, but you didn't honestly think I was gonna let you win?||”|
|“||Damn! I can't believe I got voted off. Bugger! I can't believe. I thought Rob was going to be there for me. It was stupid, actually. It was a stupid play. Argh! But that's what happens when you put too much trust and loyalty into your thought process out here. I wish I got further. I wanted that million bucks so bad 'cause I got robbed last time.||”|
