Challenges

Challenge: Dulcimer Stomp
The teams would begin by unspooling ribbons from a pole to release a key. Once they have the key, they would build a ladder to climb to the top and use that key to release a bag of balls. They would then make their way through a net sling to the finish, where they would attempt to land those balls in a series of targets. The first team to get one ball in each of the five targets wins reward.
Reward: Delivering supplies to an orphanage and a feast.
Winners: Red Team

Challenge: Back Splash
Each person have to balance on a very small perch, while leaning back holding onto a rope. Every five minutes, they will move further down the rope, which makes it more difficult. When they cannot hold on any longer, they will drop in the water and be out of the challenge. The last person left standing wins Immunity.
Winner: Carolyn Rivera

(voting for Mike) You have no idea how much this breaks my heart.

Mike Holloway



Final Words

What can I say? Um, I left it all on the field, so to speak. My tactics to go after Dan tonight were right, it's just that the rest of the group didn't really follow suit. I had a blast. I-I regret nothing that I did. Everything that I did was to my full potential. It's just difficult to get ahead in this game if you're not winning challenges and unfortunately, I came up a little short today.

Trivia

Behind the Scenes

Other

  • With Tyler voted out, Carolyn is the last remaining original Masaya member, and the only remaining owner of a Hidden Immunity Idol.
  • Immediately after the episode, the theme of the next season was revealed, and the voting pool of former survivors was introduced.
  • This episode was the only time that Mike received votes against him.
  • With Mike being the eventual winner, he would be the first winner to effectively use the Hidden Immunity Idol, meaning using the idol to negate enough votes to change the outcome of the elimination.
