Day 7Edit



Challenge: Great Escape Run
This episode's challenge was divided into two parts:

  • First Part (for Tribal Reward): Tribes must work together to make their way through three locked cages by untying planks, using grappling hooks to retrieve keys, and mastering a series of interlocking slide rails. The first tribe to crawl through the three cages to safety would win reward.
  • Second Part (for Individual Immunity): Each person must dig ladder rungs out of the sand in order to build a ladder with. The first person to build their ladder and climb to the top would win immunity at their Tribal Council. The winner would award individual immunity to one person from the rival tribe. Also, they would stay at the other tribe's camp to gather enough information that would help them decide which member of that tribe would receive immunity at their Tribal Council.

Reward: Fishing and snorkeling gear, and the chance to vie for inidividual immunity.
Winner: Lopevi (tribal reward); John Kenney (individual immunity, gave additional immunity to Ami Cusack)

Voting ConfessionalsEdit

I'm voting for you. I might be weaker than you physically, but I'm stronger than you mentally. It's just a game.


Ain't nothing personal, man. I'm just being consistent.


I'm voting for Rory tonight, because you are the weakest guy in the tribe. Hopefully, there'll be four votes to get you out, or tie with me.

–John P.

This is our strategy. Sorry, my friend.


Final WordsEdit

Well, what can I say? I survived seven days. I was hoping to stay a little bit longer but there is no way that I think I was outwitted, outlasted or outplayed. Coming to the island and being part of something that I couldn't even imagine, I'll tell you, what an experience.

Voting ConfessionalsEdit

Twila, I'm voting for you. Um, you said you can't relate to women, and, unfortunately, you got stuck on an all women's tribe. I just don't wanna spend another day on the island with you.


Mia, your volcano erupts more than I like. Good luck in finding a husband that will put up with you.


I think you're a young woman that's got a big chip on her shoulder. I think that you got a mouth and a half, and I think you need to go. That's all.


Twila, my vote's for you. I think you have an amazing work ethic, but you can't be here anymore. Sorry.


Final WordsEdit

I have met a lot of amazing girls and a lot of people that I never want to see again, one of them being Twila. Twila, you have been extremely deceiving with all the girls. I thought you were absolutely horrendous. I don't think you have the social skills to play this game at all and that's going to wear on the girls. Hopefully, you will get voted off next.

–Mia Galeotalanza
