Dead Man Walking is the eighth episode of Survivor: Philippines.
Jonathan confronted his old Kalabaw alliance about their betrayal against him. With an obvious desire for the new players to vote out the returning players, Michael told Jonathan that they should bide their time and be on the look out for cracks among the new players in order to stay in the game longer. At the Reward Challenge, the team of Denise, Jeff, Jonathan, Lisa, and Malcolm took the win. Jonathan used this opportunity to try to shift attention to the alliance of Abi, Pete, and Artis, who appear to be running the show right now. On day 22, Lisa approached Michael and told him that she had discovered Malcolm's Hidden Immunity Idol. She proposed that they stay loyal to the original core Tandang alliance and blindside Malcolm. At the Immunity Challenge, Pete, Jeff, and Jonathan advanced to the second stage after Jonathan dove over the finish line just ahead of Michael. Jonathan then came from behind during the puzzle assembly stage to take a critical Individual Immunity. With Jonathan being immune, the new players all agreed to vote out Michael. Lisa told Pete that Malcolm had the Hidden Immunity Idol and that they should blindside him. Looking for confirmation, Pete confronted Malcolm, who denied it. Pete believed him and instead proposed that they vote out Jeff. Malcolm got agreement from Michael, Jonathan, and Artis to vote out Jeff. Jeff got word that he could be voted out and tried to arrange for Pete to be voted out. At Tribal Council, Malcolm said that Lisa threw him under the bus by revealing that he has a Hidden Immunity Idol. Lisa admitted that she did so and laid out her whole scheme. Malcolm, tired of the craziness, pulled out his Hidden Immunity Idol to show the entire tribe. Abi-Maria also pulled out her Hidden Immunity Idol. Lisa continued to pitch for the core Tandang alliance to stick together, while Jonathan pitched the plan of the core Kalabaw alliance plus Malcolm and Michael to vote out one of the core Tandang members. After the votes were cast, neither Malcolm nor Abi-Maria played their Idol; indeed, neither of them needed it, as the tribe sent Jeff to the jury by a vote of 5–4–1.
Challenge: Catch of the Day
Castaways are split up into two teams of five. One at a time, they must go out in the water and clip a rope to a fish basket containing pieces to a flag puzzle. The other teammates would then drag them back to shore. The first team to assemble the puzzle will win reward.

Winners: Denise Stapley, Jeff Kent, Jonathan Penner, Lisa Whelchel and Malcolm Freberg

Each castaway must traverse a series of hurdles to retrieve bags of puzzle pieces. First three to finish will move on to the final round, where they have to use the puzzle pieces to form a snake. First contestant to finish the snake puzzle wins Immunity.

|“||You know what pisses me off? I think I've made about 60 million dollars playing baseball, and I want this frickin' million dollars in this game, and it's not even a million bucks! It's 600 grand by the time Obama takes it! I'm a Game 7 World Series loser. I've played in the biggest games in the world and the worst games in the world, but this just sucks.||”|

Behind the ScenesEdit
Life at PonderosaEdit
- Jeff Kent is welcomed by R.C. Jeff apologizes for his bad judgment call for not taking R.C. and Michael into his alliance.
- Jeff Kent lost 22.5 lbs. in the 22 days he was in the game. Medics then confirm that his MCL was torn (as he speculated when he got injured in the first episode).
- Jeff reveals he is happy when nobody recognized him as a former baseball player, but regrets not taking R.C. and Michael in his alliance.
- Jeff is delighted to see rainfall coming down, wanting the remaining survivors to suffer more.
- This episode marks the first time that Jonathan Penner won Individual Immunity in the three seasons he has competed in.
- It is also the first time in his three seasons that Penner has won any individual challenges after the merge.
- This episode is similar to Zipping Over the Cuckoo's Nest in that Malcolm Freberg reveals that he has a Hidden Immunity Idol at the final ten. In both episodes, the intended target won individual immunity, while the person leading the campaign against them was voted out.
- This is the second episode where a reference to Barack Obama (current president of the United States of America) is made, the first being Bum-Puzzled, in which the reference was made by Tarzan Smith.
- The episode title comes from Jeff Kent's confessional, referring to Penner winning Individual Immunity and being on the outs of Dangrayne.
