Price for Immunity is the twelfth episode of Survivor: Guatemala.
At the Survivor Auction, everybody enjoys food and visits from their loved ones. Danni buys an advantage to the next Immunity Challenge. Judd, Cindy, and Stephenie enjoy an overnight stay with their loved ones.
At the Immunity Challenge, the advantage Danni bought at the auction ultimately leads to her winning the challenge. After the challenge Danni convinces Rafe and Stephenie to betray their alliance and blindside Judd due to him being untrustworthy. At Tribal Council, Judd becomes the fourth jury member by a 4-2 vote.
Challenge: Loved Ones Auction
The survivors will receive money to outbid each other for items, mostly food. The auction culminated with one final offer, the survivor's loved ones will have an overnight stay at the Xhakúm tribe camp, with two other players and the loved ones in tow.
Challenge: Watch Your Step
One at a time, players make a move on the giant multi-level playing board. Flip a tile to the red side, and step onto it. Once a tile has been flipped and stepped on, it cannot be used again. In addition, the top level is a spinning platform to be used for strategic repositioning on the board. If a player is completely surrounded by flipped tiles, they are eliminated from the challenge. Last person standing wins.
Additional Stipulation: For purchasing the advantage during the auction, Danni is allowed to switch positions with any remaining player on the board once in the challenge.
Winner: Danni Boatwright

|“||Judd, I'm pretty sure it's one of us tonight. I hope it's you, but if it's not, then good job.||”|
|“||(voting for Judd) You told me today that there was only one sure way to avoid being voted off, and that was to have an Immunity Necklace. But you also forgot that there's also an alliance that I tried to form with you, but I think you chose your own destiny.||”|
|“||(voting for Judd) You always say we're a bunch of squirrels trying to get a nut. Well, sorry I had to write your name down, but I had to do what I had to do today.||”|
|“||(voting for Judd) I really did not want to do this, but some conversations have come up that you were turning on our alliance, and I've heard a number of things, so I feel that I can't trust you, and if I don't get rid of you, then I won't go to the end. I'm so sorry. I love you like a brother, and I hope you'll forgive me.||”|
|“||Hey, Lydia, you sang and you danced your way right out of the jungle. Adiós.||”|
|“||Lydia, being who you are makes you a threat in this game. People love you, and you're so dang smiley. Like your recipes, you always bring a smile to my face, and I'll never forget any of 'em. Thanks a lot.||”|
|“||I am really pissed off. I was pissed off, lied to and betrayed. It doesn't feel good being blindsided and it sucks being lied to because one thing I didn't do was lie to anybody. Get rid of the biggest target? That's what they did, man. I really believe they are a bunch of scumbags and I cannot wait until the Final Two. I will have a lot more to say.||”|
Still in the Running

- This is also the first time an Immunity Challenge advantage is offered; and Danni is the first contestant to buy such an advantage and actually win the Immunity Challenge.
- This is the first auction to have the Survivors bid for their loved ones to have an overnight Survivor experience.
- This is the first auction to have a returning player, Stephenie, compete in more than one auction. She previously competed in the Survivor: Palau auction.
