Keep Hope Alive is the third episode of Survivor: Redemption Island.

This episode introduces the first ever duel between two voted out contestants.

Story

Day 5

Moments after being voted out from Ometepe, Matthew was sent to Redemption Island, where he found Francesca sleeping in her hut. Matt woke Francesca, who was shocked upon learning Rob had cannibalized his own alliance member, and she wondered why her nemesis Phillip was not voted out. Minutes after being blindsided by Rob, Matt vented: "There's a little anger. I don't know, I guess I just trusted Boston [Rob] too soon." But still keeping his spirits up, he concluded: "What an opportunity to become the underdog and come back from Redemption Island and finish this game with a million dollars."

As the Ometepe was about to sleep, Rob lauded himself for orchestrating Matt's blindside. He said in a confessional: "Tonight could not have gone any better. Not only did we blindside Matt, we were able to have Kristina get rid of her Immunity Idol and Phillip's a loyal soldier." Rob then congratulated Phillip for his big help at the last vote and invited him to replace Matt in his alliance. Meanwhile, Rob was worried about Andrea's feelings after eliminating Matt, and was eager not to make her feel vulnerable.

Day 6

At Redemption Island, Matt and Francesca found a note in their Tree Mail, notifying them about their impending duel. The note included a map that leads to the Redemption Island Arena, where the duels will take place. Meanwhile, the tribes also received a Tree Mail, instructing them to send two members to be spectators at the duel.

Trivia

  • This episode marked the first three-way tie in the show's history.
  • This week's duel was inspired by the challenge held during the Outcast twist.
  • With Russell Hantz being voted off, Sandra Diaz-Twine is the last player to play multiple times and make it to the Final Tribal Council in every season that player has appeared in.
  • This episode marks the first time Russell Hantz has been voted out.
  • The Tree Mail that was sent to the tribes contained a bag full of stones. If the tribe couldn't make a decision of who would get to witness the duel, they could randomly select them by picking rocks. The two people who got the tribe-colored stones would watch the duel.
  • This week's challenge is a throwback of the Immunity Challenge held in “Turf Wars”.
  • This season marked the latest that the first contestant eliminated left the game; Francesca Hogi left the game on Day 6.
