I'm Gonna Fix Her! is the twelfth episode of Survivor: Micronesia.
Challenge: Body Slam
The castaways would, in private, answer a survey about their fellow tribemates. They would then have to guess whose name came up the most from the group. Each time a castaway guessed correctly, they would be given the opportunity to chop at a rope that held a weight above a statuette that represented another castaway. After three chops of the rope, the statuette would be smashed and that castaway would be eliminated from the challenge. The last castaway whose statuette was not smashed would win reward.
Reward: A trip to Jellyfish Lake to swim among stingless jellyfish with a loved one; selection of two additional castaways and their loved ones to share the reward
Winner: Alexis Jones (shared with Cirie Fields and Natalie Bolton)

|“||(votes for Amanda) We both know this is just going through the motions. This doesn't mean anything. All part of the plan.||”|
|“||(votes for Amanda) This is only because...if I did not make this vote, I would be handing you a million dollars.||”|
|“||(votes for Amanda) Amanda, I absolutely adore you. This is one of the hardest votes I've put in.||”|
|“||(votes for Amanda) I gotta stop taking this game so personally. I'm really sorry. I am sorry.||”|
|“||(votes for Alexis) Hey, babe. I'm voting for you because I have the idol. I think you're a great person and I really respect your game. You're very, very likeable, and the next biggest threat. I'm sorry, you have to go.||”|
|“||(votes for Alexis) You are one of the funniest girls I've ever met, and I'm going to miss you a lot. I gave my word to Nat I would take care of her and protect her through this vote, so it's gotta be you this time. Sorry babe.||”|
|“||Yeah, I didn't see that one coming at all. But um, it's a game so yeah, I'm not mad at all. I think I made my pop proud. I never lied once when I was here. I kept a level of integrity of who I am outside of this game. I'm rooting for my girl Nat! Not even a question. This is the hardest physical, mental, spiritual thing I've ever done.||”|
