Pick a Castaway... Any Castaway is the fourth episode of Survivor: Pearl Islands.
Challenge: Float-It Notes
Grab sixteen puzzle pieces buried in the sand and tied up underwater, then solve the puzzle.
Reward: Sewing machine and material; loot one item from losing tribe; piece of treasure map
Challenge: Boarding Party
Each tribe member would move one space at a time across a platform to try and get to the opposite tribes platform. If two contestants from different tribes block each other from moving they wil have to engage in a physical showdown, with the first person to fall having to go back to the start. The first tribe to get all their members to the opposite platform wins immunity.
Additional Stipulation: The winning tribe would kidnap a member of the opposing tribe until the next challenge, effectively granting them immunity.
Winner: Morgan (kidnapped Rupert Boneham)

|“||(voting for Burton) You're the biggest threat that we have. We'll see you, buddy.||”|
|“||(voting for Christa) Christa, this is a tough game, but I'm making strategic decisions.||”|
|“||(voting for Burton) Now, can you dig that, sucker?||”|
|“||So, I've got to say I'm disappointed beyond what words could explain. But being a strategic player and knowing the threat that I posed to every individual in my tribe, I probably would have done what the majority ended up doing. It's going to be a lot harder without me. Challenges are not going to be guaranteed as they were when I was involved. So good luck to those left, and I'll see you on the other side.||”|
Still in the Running
- This marks the first time that a castaway was abstained from the vote, even after his tribe lost the Immunity Challenge.
- This also marks the first time that a tribe has the right to kidnap an opposing tribe member for the time being.
