It's Human Nature is the penultimate episode of Survivor: One World.
The cold opening starts out with Tarzan advising Kim to take Alica and Christina to the final three with her because of their low chance of winning. Kim falsely agrees, but has other plans. Alicia walks up to Tarzan and Kim, and was filled in on Tarzan's plan. Tarzan also tells Kim and Alicia separately that he will persuade the jury to vote for them at the Final Tribal Council. Later, Chelsea and Christina are walking to get Tree Mail, and Chelsea promises to take Christina with her on reward. Chelsea later wins the Reward Challenge. When asked who she wants to go with, she picks Sabrina and Kim.
On the boat, Chelsea, Sabrina, and Kim enjoy the reward, and team up to go to the final three. Back at camp, Alicia, Christina, and Tarzan are irritated by Chelsea's choice to take Kim on reward despite the fact that Kim went on the last three rewards. The three decide to vote Chelsea out. Tarzan then tells Alicia to take Sabrina and Christina to the final three. When the rewarded trio returns to camp, they immediately witness a brief argument between Tarzan and Alicia. Later on the beach, Kim and Alicia talk about voting Chelsea out. They then talk about Tarzan and discover that he told them both the same strategy. Alicia then begins to have doubts about Tarzan's loyalty.
After a close Immunity Challenge, Alicia wins and is safe from elimination.
On the beach, Kim admits to Chelsea that she and Alicia might vote her out that night. Sabrina consoles Chelsea later and assures her that she's not going home tonight. The group travels to Tribal Council with Tarzan clad in Kat's pink tank top. Tarzan tries to convince the women that he is an asset because of his low chances of winning, but the women are doubtful. Tarzan is voted out in a 5-1 vote. With the last man out, the five women that are left battle it out in the finale.
Challenge: Spinning Wheel
The castaways start off by holding onto a disk and spinning around it in order to detach it from a post, making them dizzy. They must repeat the process for the final two discs and make their way to a decoding station, where they will align 3 numbers for a combination. They will then pull on a lever. If they have right, a flag in the respective color of their station will raise. First person to do this wins reward.

Behind The Scenes
Life at Ponderosa
- During his medical check-up, Tarzan lost 24.4 lbs and currently weighs 199 lbs. When in the car he says he's surprised he made it further in the game then he excepted to. Tarzan thought everybody would be mad at him, but to his surprise when he arrives to Ponderosa, he gets a warm reception from everybody. Wearing Kat's shirt, he takes it off and playfully throws it at her. He later dishes up food and sits down to eat. He later goes to his room and upon looking at himself in the mirror, he bursts into laughter and says he if saw himself walking down the street, he would turn around and run and says "No wonder the girls voted me out, I probably scared them". He says when he looks back on his experience playing Survivor, it will be an adventure he wanted to have before he died.
- Tarzan did not shower the night before. At Ponderosa when the jury was eating breakfast, Michael was so disgusted with Tarzan for not showering and couldn't eat near him due to smelling really bad. Tarzan shaves his beard, leaving only his mustache. Later, the jury drinks kava, a Samoan intoxicant. Tarzan seeks help from Troyzan to help him wear his cowboy boots, which he reveals are from his "disco days."
- After this episode, all of the men, and as such, all of the original Manono members have been voted out of the game.
The episode title is said by Tarzan Smith at Tribal Council when answering a question from Jeff. He says that every time somebody has been voted out it's because it was their time to go and that "it's human nature" for each of them not to be introspective enough to reach that conclusion.
