All Hell Breaks Loose is the eighth episode of Survivor: Samoa.
Immunity Challenge: Nut Cracker
The castaways would play a variation of T-ball with the men competing against the men and the women against the women. The playing field would be divided into sections with different point values. Each castaway would take one swing at the ball. Wherever the ball comes to a stop would be that castaway's score. Two castaways, one man and one woman, with the highest score would win immunity.
Winners: John Fincher and Laura Morett

Jaison did not say anything when he voted.
|“||(votes for Erik) Erik, I'm voting for you because you are aggressive, you are unpredictable, and I don't know whether I can trust you or not.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) You are arrogant, cocky, machismo and bossy. I couldn't have planned a better and more timely exit for you myself. I can't believe I considered even trusting you. The fact that you think that I am the female version of you is insulting and disgusts me. I have no respect for you. Goodbye Erik.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) As far as I'm concerned, this vote doesn't count. This happened at the last literally ten minutes and I didn't have the power to stop it. Everyone else is voting for you and so I have to too, but I think you did your job just like you said you would.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) Sorry E but your own paranoia was your demise. The minute you turned against Galu and went against the girls, you had to go.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) Erik I'm voting for you and I really hope everybody does what they say they're gonna do.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) You're a hell of a competitor man, and a slightly more decent guy than I gave credit for initially but almost your entire tribe asked us to do this so we kind of have to go with the flow to stay in the game so seyonara.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) Don't think I don't know what y'all doing, this is the best blindside that ever happened.||”|
|“||(votes for Jaison) J-gone! I don't have anything to say about that.||”|
|“||(votes for Jaison) Jaison...||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) Erik you're an insane competitor and unfortunately it sounds like the entire tribe decided to vote you out, it's nothing personal. I saw the two of us going to the final together and I wish you the best.||”|
|“||(votes for Erik) I wanted to trust you but I think you had us all fooled, sorry.||”|
|“||Wow. Wow, wow. I'm disappointed but I said playing Survivor would be looking into a mirror and I'm pretty proud of the face I see. I don't regret going home with the idol, it can't defend against something that's invisible, and this blindside was invisible to me but I gave 100% of my heart.||”|
Still in the Running
