Challenge: The Home Stretch
The castaways will each race under a net crawl. They will then make their way to a table where they will slide tiles into a target. Once all the tiles are through, they will use a machete to transport those tiles over a teeter-totter and balance beam to the finish table. They will then sort the tiles into pairs. Three of the tiles will not match up. Those three hold the code to a combination that will unlock their box. First person to unlock their box and raise their flag wins.
Reward: Advantage in the next Immunity Challenge along with their Loved One spending a day at camp with them.
Winner: Mike Holloway

Challenge: Going Blind
Castaways will be blindfolded in the center of a giant maze. They will race to find four medallions in the North, South, East and West corners of the maze. There are guideposts to help them navigate.

Immunity (Day 38)

Challenge: Final Four-Titude
The castaways have to untie knots to open a gate and then race up a huge tower. When they get to the top, they will retrieve a key and then fly down a giant waterslide. They will then make their way through a multi-level obstacle course where they will use the key to release a bag of puzzle pieces. They will drop the bag on a table and head back up the massive tower to retrieve the next key. Once they have collected all three keys and bags, they will use the pieces inside to solve a lighthouse puzzle. The first person to get it right wins Immunity.

Voting Confessionals

Sierra was shown writing down Rodney's name but didn't give a confessional.

(voting for Sierra) We've been together for 37 days. And guess what? I just outwitted you, baby girl.

Rodney Lavoie Jr.

Final Words

I've never been surrounded by people who lie as much as these people do. But if they're playing the game as me being a threat, I guess it's kind of a compliment and that's how it went tonight. I gave it my best and it wasn't enough.

No re-vote or voting confessionals for it were shown.

(voting for Rodney) I hope my skills take me to the Final Three tonight.

Carolyn Rivera

(voting for Carolyn) I got a lot of love for you, Mama C. But just remember, this game is cutthroat and you gotta do what you gotta do.

Rodney Lavoie Jr.

Final Words

I wish I just got to the Final Three. It would've been a breeze. I would've easily won this game. And for this scumbag redneck to make me do a fire competition? It's a bunch of horse(expletive censor). He's a scared little baby. He's a silly redneck. And he's going to get what's coming to him.

Dan's confessional and vote were not shown. However, he was shown loudly banging his head on the voting booth while deciding who to vote for.

(voting for Mike) Will did nothing. Carolyn did nothing. Mike, 150,000% deserves this money and have this title.

Jenn Brown

(voting for Will) I kept it real in this game. You kept it real in this game. And I hope everybody realizes how good of a person you are, brother. Love you to the death of you.

Rodney Lavoie Jr.

(voting for Carolyn) I genuinely believe you played the best game in its entirety. That's why my million dollar vote goes to Mama C.

Behind the Scenes


  • Mike Holloway ties the record for most individual Immunity Challenge wins, with five.
  • This episode makes the first tie in the final four and first fire-making tiebreaker since "Reunion".
  • In her jury speech, Shirin Oskooi claimed that Carolyn Rivera voted out every member of the jury, but this is not entirely true as Carolyn did not directly vote Joe Anglim out. However, one could say that her vote against Jenn Brown was part of her alliance's split vote plan, and Joe being the primary target of the alliance as a whole means that Carolyn possibly wanted to vote out Joe.
  • In a rather interesting coincidence, the Final Three consists of one representative from the original three tribes: Carolyn represents White Collar, Mike represents Blue Collar, and Will Sims II represents No Collar.
    • Dan Foley is the only jury member to vote for his same collar representative, Mike, as the other Blue Collars voted for either Carolyn or Will, while the No Collars and the White Collars voted for Mike.
  • This episode was the first season finale with the Loved Ones Challenge.
  • According to Carolyn in a post-game interview, there were no opening statements made to the jury.[2]
