Bunking with the Devil is the sixth episode of Survivor: Cambodia.
At Ta Keo, a boat pulls up to the shore and Jeff Probst climbs ashore. He wakes up Terry Deitz and tells him that he got a phone call from Terry's wife and his son Danny is in the hospital and it's serious enough that he needs to go home. Jeff says he knows it's a shock and he wouldn't be here if it wasn't serious. Terry goes to grab his bag so he can leave with Jeff. He tells the Angkor tribe that his son Danny is in the hospital and he has to go home, he says the doctor told him he needs to come home.
Everyone hugs him goodbye. Kass McQuillen says she can't imagine how it must be to get the call that something has happened to your child. She says it's a reminder how quickly things can change. Keith Nale says they need to win this for Terry. Terry leaves with Jeff.
Jeff tells announces Terry is gone. The other tribes are shocked. Jeff says Terry had a family emergency and tells them one of his kids is sick.
Andrew Savage says he would run right to the airport. He says they all love the game but family is bigger than that. The other parents agree that they would all do what Terry did and they are all upset. Ciera Eastin is a young mom and she says she talked to her husband about something happening and she says she would go home too. Joe Anglim says it took the wind out of their sails a bit but they are going to work hard. Jeff tells them another tribe swap will commence.
Andrew is excited. They will be back down to two tribes with Angkor being dissolved. They open their buffs and have to reorganize. Woo Hwang, Andrew, and Abi-Maria Gomes are together with Kass, Spencer Bledsoe, and Ciera. Kass says she's hesitant about being in a tribe with Spencer who refers to her as his arch-nemesis. Kelley Wentworth is with Bayon and is the only original Ta Keo. Stephen Fishbach is in Bayon too and he says there are some alpha guys there with Jeremy Collins, Joe, Tasha Fox, and others.
|The New Bayon Tribe|
|The New Ta Keo Tribe|
For the Reward Challenge, one member from each tribe does a huge slip and slide, grabs a ring then tosses it onto a post. It's first to get to three. The winning tribe gets a picnic with fried chicken, mac and cheese and brownies delivered to camp. First is Andrew vs Jeremy in round one. They both score but Jeremy got it first so it's 1-0. Now it's Kass vs Stephen. Stephen misses as does Kass. Stephen falls short the second time and Kass ties it up 1-1. Next is Abi-Maria vs Kimmi Kappenberg. Kimmi's bounces off and Abi-Maria walks off. They yell at her to go back and throw.
Abi-Maria lands it and it's 2-0 Ta Keo. Now it's Woo vs Joe. They oil up and are ready to slide. Joe lands one and it's tied 2-2. Now it's a showdown of Wiglesworth vs Wentworth, Kelly vs Kelley. This is for the win. Both of their rings bounce off then Kelly Wiglesworth lands her second throw. Ta Keo gets the picnic and Bayon has nothing. Jeff sends them back to camp empty handed. Andrew is thrilled to have Abi-Maria and Woo. He's confident he's safe.
Back at Ta Keo, the tribe settles in with their new teammates and sits down for fried chicken. Spencer asks Kass how it was at Ta Keo. She says the four of them were low drama, non-schemers. Spencer is trying hard to get along with Kass. Andrew says they're out of the hell hole and says it was so hard at Angkor. They all toast with their fried chicken. Andrew says he thinks Spencer has a great heart but knows Kass can't stand Spencer and is going to leverage this. Over at Bayon, they are bickering. Keith gets on to Kimmi about the fire and Joe and Kelly talk about the work ahead. He says they need to try and find a way to keep her here. He has a good alliance and has people over at Ta Keo. He wants to keep Kelly for numbers at the merge. He wants Stephen and Kimmi to go before her. Joe talks to Tasha and Stephen about Kimmi and how she's not great at challenges. Stephen asks why they would break up Bayon strong. Stephen knows Joe is trying to rip apart the core alliance. Stephen runs to Jeremy and tells him that Joe wants to go for Kimmie. Fish says he's happy to go after Joe but Jeremy says he doesn't want Joe to go first. Jeremy wants to keep Joe around as a shield since he's a big target too. Jeremy encourages Stephen to have confidence at challenges. He tells Stephen he's bugging and to calm down. Stephen is focused on social strategy and strategic moves. Fish then goes to Tasha and tries to turn her towards targeting Joe. Stephen teary and upset in his confessional is the idea that he would miss the second chance. He says he put so much into the game last time and came up short. He says he needs to get his crew to take the shot. He says he kicked himself for not kicking out the golden boy behind. Stephen is convinced getting Joe out is the big move of the season.
The Immunity Challenge is a food eating competition. It's local delicacies from Cambodia. They have done the challenge 14 times and Kimmi did it back in season 2 in Australia. In the first round Woo and Spencer square off against Kimmi and Tasha. They each have two tarantulas and the first pair down wins it. Spencer is done then Woo. Ta Keo gets a point. Next is Keith and Jeremy battling Andrew and Ciera, eating giant water beetles. Andrew and Jeremy are done. Keith is done and ties it up 1-1.
Ciera is ill from the beetles. Stephen and Kelley vs. Kass and Abi-Maria eating pig snout. Kass holds her nose to shovel it in. Abi-Maria gobbles it up. Stephen is done first. Abi-Maria is done. Now it's Kass vs. Kelley Wentworth. Kass spits hers up and Kelley is done. Bayon takes the lead 2-1. Now it's individual matches. Joe vs. Kelly Wiglesworth in deep fried frog. Kelly Wiglesworth wins it and ties it back up 2-2. Next is Woo vs. Kimmi in pig brain. Kimmi won't even try it due to being a vegetarian. Woo eats it down in five seconds putting Ta Keo in the lead 3-2.
Next is Ciera and Kelley Wentworth with a fried scorpion. Ciera could win it and Kelley Wentworth could tie it up. Ciera gags. Kelley Wentworth is done and ties it up 3-3. Last is Tasha and Kass in duck embryo. Tasha shoves it in shell and all. Kass looks like she's going to vomit and starts gagging. Tasha is chewing and hopping around. She's done and Bayon wins it and takes immunity. Ta Keo will go to Tribal Council. Kass says she hates letting the tribe down and starts crying.
Ta Keo heads back upset that they have to go to Tribal Council. Woo says they will all vote Spencer unless the plan changes. Andrew tells Woo not to be seen talking to Ciera so Spencer doesn't get a heads up. Andrew says he thinks Ciera is going to go and Spencer trusts him. He says Kass, Abi and those two now. Andrew says he feels bad about voting Spencer but won't let anything ruin his second chance. Andrew says this will be a huge blindside.
Ciera tells Kass and Abi-Maria she doesn't think her name should be the one to get written down now that Andrew is tight with Woo. Kass says she thinks they should get rid of Spencer before the merge but Ciera wants Woo gone. Kass talks to Spencer and she says there's stuff going on that could benefit him. He says he likes Andrew and she says he wanted to target Spencer and suggested telling Spencer to vote for Ciera as part of a blindside. Spencer is stunned.
Kass thinks Woo is a more pressing threat. Spencer says he may have to bunk with the devil and go with Kass. Kass tells Woo that she's going to get her revenge on Spencer. Kass weighs out the options: Get rid of a social threat (Woo) or a physical threat (Spencer). This is her first tribal of her second chance and she says she doesn't know if "Calm Kass" or "Chaos Kass" will show up at Tribal. The ones without torches get their fire. Andrew says he's been working on his personal game and building relationships.
Spencer says he came into the game and seeing the others as people and not just competition. Woo says his first season he failed to see he needed to be more cut throat. Kass says it's hard to keep track and says she was on Bayon with Andrew and then knows Woo from Cagayan. She says she and Ciera have been together from day one. Andrew says he hasn't seen 'Chaos Kass' yet, he's seen 'loving 'loyal Kass. Ciera says she's watching Andrew getting close with Woo and that makes her uncertain.
Andrew says he has no doubts about tonight. Ciera says someone's plan won't work out. Jeff then calls for the vote. Andrew writes down Spencer's name and he says it's because he's too good at the game. Spencer writes down Woo's name and says his fate is in the hands of Kass. No idols are played. The votes are: Spencer, Woo, Spencer, Spencer, Woo, Woo. Woo and Spencer are tied 3-3 votes each. The final vote is for Woo.
Woo got hit with a blindside he didn't see coming. Spencer whispers thank you to Abi-Maria and she smiles. Andrew is stunned. Jeff says to Woo "the tribe has spoken" and extinguishes Woo's torch.
In the epilouge, Terry is with his son Danny and we find out his son needed a heart transplant and Terry says he got it and his son is doing well now.

|“||(at home with son Danny) It was ten years I waited for my Survivor second chance and when Jeff woke me up in the middle of the night, getting home to my family was the only thing I could think about. It turns out my son Danny needed a heart transplant and he got that transplant and he's doing well. And here I was thinking I was the second chance guy-- (points to son) our second chance survivor is right here.||”|
