Reward/Immunity

Challenge: Tow The Line
Each tribe must remember a historical story of Captain James Cook. Tied together as a group, the tribe must make their way over and under logs and through a field of poles, gathering seven answer flags. Once they cross a two-line rope bridge over a pit of water, they must use the seven answer flags collected to solve five questions about the story. The first tribe to answer the five questions correctly wins Immunity and two large tarps as a Reward. The first three tribes to finish win Immunity. If a tribe misses a part of the story, they can go back to the starting line, where a copy of the story was placed there.
Reward: Tribal Immunity for the first three tribes to finish and two tarps for the first two tribes to finish.
Winners (according to finish): Puka Puka and Rarotonga (immunity and reward); Manihiki (immunity)

Voting Confessionals

(voting for Billy) Sorry, man. I know your health's the most important thing, and we're trying all to win this, and I know you understand.

Ozzy


(voting for Billy) If I can't trust you now, I won't be able to trust you later on in the game.

J.P.


(voting for Billy) Billy, I'm sorry. I know you're feeling sick. I think you're best off being at home. Good luck with your future. Now I'll see what I can do about Candice.

Cristina


(voting for Ozzy) The only reason why I'm voting for you is 'cause you are the best player in the Aitutaki tribe. This is just a respect thing, and also a crapshoot. Hopefully, somebody'll flip. Alright, brother. Good luck, brother. I think you're gonna win it all.

Billy


(voting for Billy) I told you why I voted you. I hope you feel better.

Cecilia



Final Words

I came into this wanting to live the dream of playing 'Survivor'. I got to live that dream six days and I think it is kinda cool that the heavy metal guy is getting eliminated by a guy named Ozzy. My biggest regret is that I didn't play the way I wish I would have. I didn't represent myself well in the beginning but I am not going to regret anything because I still got to live the dream. It's too bad that there wasn't a heavy metal tribe because I think I would have fit in better.
