Story

Day 23

On Day 23, Malcolm planned to split the vote with Reynold and Eddie. He tried to convince Sherri and Dawn to get the others to go along with his idea, but Dawn planned on voting Malcolm out instead.

Day 24

Day 25

At the Day 25 Immunity Challenge, the remaining 11 competed for immunity. Eventually, Brenda won using a handmade (literally) snorkel. Eddie flirted with Andrea back into the game, and Reynold foolishly handed his idol to Malcolm so he could get rid of the idol. The original target of the Stealth R Us 2.0 alliance was Malcolm, but Andrea felt that Malcolm would use a Hidden Immunity Idol, so she frantically convinced her alliance to vote off Michael minutes before Tribal Council. Malcolm had no votes at all, upsetting the mistaken Reynold. Eventually, Michael Snow was blindsided by Phillip's dominating alliance. 

Challenges

Challenge: Jump Shot
One member of each team will be the defender standing on a perch in the water while one at a time, members of the other tribe leap off a platform into the water and attempt to throw a ball past the defender and into the net. The first tribe to get four balls in the net wins.
Reward: A trip down a waterfall and a picnic lunch.
Winner: Purple Team

Challenge: Last Gasp
The players must swim under a steel grate and stay above the water. As the tide rises, player will run out of breathing room. If the fear of drowning is too much, that person can bail out. The last person still under the grate wins the challenge.
Winner: Brenda Lowe

Voting Confessionals

(voting for Reynold) The idea was this was a throwaway vote. After Phillip's little speech, I don't know what's going on anymore. Hopefully, something goes according to plan.

Malcolm



Final Words

It has been a long, strange, weird, difficult journey. It's over. What can I say? I'm very disappointed. I wanted to go far and deep into the game, and I thought I could, but the Favorites are great players. They really are tight and they're playing hard and strong. I know it's gonna bust up eventually, but here I am. It's a bummer.
