It's Called a Russell Seed is the third episode of Survivor: Samoa.
Challenge: Sea Crates
A pair of castaways from each tribe would swim out into the ocean to retrieve one of four crates with a different color on each face of a crate. Between the beach and crates would be a "battle zone" marked off by four flags. Within this zone, an opposing tribe member would try to prevent the two castaways from crossing the zone and reaching the crate. Once the two castaways crossed the zone, they would bring a crate back to the beach, and a second pair of castaways would go out to retrieve another crate. Once all four crates were retrieved, the crates would need to be stacked so that one color didn't show more than once on each column. The first tribe to complete the puzzle would win.
Reward: Tribal immunity and comfort items of pillows, candles, mats, beach towels, and a hammock

Jaison did not say anything when he voted.
|“||(votes for Ben) You and I have grown a little closer over the past few days, but, man, you are way too abrasive and have way, way too many enemies in that other camp, uh, to be nothing but a liability on any kind of merge or swap. Sorry, man, but that's the consensus. You gotta go.||”|
|“||(votes for Ben) I just really think that you need to grow up. That's all I have to say to you.||”|
|“||(votes for Ben) I didn't wanna have to do this, Ben, but I have no choice now. See ya in Hollywood.||”|
|“||(votes for Ben) Sorry, you're just too inflammatory for the tribe.||”|
|“||(votes for Ashley) You knew it was coming.||”|
|“||(votes for Ben) I am voting for Ben because this is what my alliance wants.||”|
|“||Well, I think it's really funny that I'm going home because I think everybody gonna starve. I think it's even funnier that it's raining. You guys gonna be wet and I'm not worry about it because I will get a nice, dry sleep tonight. The tribe's a punch of sissies, uh... everybody except Russell. I was the hardest working guy in camp, everybody knew that. They gonna miss me when I'm gone.||”|
