Don't Cry Over Spilled Octopus is the fifth episode of Survivor: Cook Islands.


At Aitutaki, Cao Boi complained about Becky, Candice, and Sundra being lazy. At the modified weight-holding Reward Challenge, the tribes began trash-talking each other; but Rarotonga's Nate and Adam came in victorious. Rarotonga sent Jonathan back to Exile Island since he had been there before. Back at camp, Cristina's tribemates complained about her being bossy like J.P.. Cao Boi, Jessica, and Ozzy went exploring around the bay and accidentally ended up on Rarotonga's island. Their unexpected visit did not sit well with Rarotonga. Meanwhile, back at Aitutaki, Becky, Candice, and Yul tried to pull Sundra into their alliance with Jonathan. Aitutaki came from behind to win the Immunity Challenge. That afternoon, Rarotonga collectively decided that Cristina would be voted off next. But when Stephannie and Nate gathered water from the well, Stephannie told Nate that she "wanted mashed potatoes and gravy". Nate took this as a sign of weakness, and relayed it to the tribe. Even though Cristina spilled their octopus lunch earlier and continued to irritate others, the vote swung against Stephannie 7–1.

(voting for Stephannie) You're a great woman, and I think you're great to be around, but I don't think your heart's in this game.


(voting for Stephannie) Stephannie, you're a beautiful woman inside and out. Thank you for your spiritual guidance that you've bestowed upon our tribe.


(voting for Cristina) Just because, Sweetie, just because. Nothing personal.


(voting for Stephannie) I hate to do this, but your heart's not in the game anymore.


(voting for Stephannie) You are a beautiful, beautiful person inside and out, and I thank you for all that you have done and all that you continue to do. God bless.


(voting for Stephannie) I believe you have a big, beautiful heart; it just wasn't 100% in this game. I'm gonna miss you, Mother Soul.


Final Words

I would've loved to have stayed in the game a little while longer but if your mind's not there completely, 100%, then your tribe is going to feel that. And you don't want to be a weak link to your tribe. I had wonderful tribemates, I was thankful to have been a part of the experience and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Thanks.
