She Obviously Is Post-Op! is the third episode of Survivor: Gabon.
Challenge: Kicking and Screaming
One member of each tribe would hang on to a post. Two members of the opposing tribe would attempt to remove the tribe member from the post and drag them across the sand to the finish line. The first tribe to get the member of the other tribe across the finish line would receive one point. The first tribe to score two points would win.
Reward: Blankets, a hammock, pillows, and a mat
Challenge: Lake Launch
One at a time, six tribe members would slide down a water slide. They would then swim out to retrieve a numbered tile, then run up the hill they slid down to drop their number off. Once all six tiles were retrieved, the remaining castaway would use the tiles to solve a numeric puzzle. The answer to the puzzle is a combination to open a locked chest, which holds an ax. The first tribe to open their chest and use the ax to cut a rope that would raise their tribe's flag would win.

|“||I'm voting for you because you tried to get me in an alliance in the beginning, but I saw right through you. So you can take you and your little sidekick emotional mob face outta here.||”|
|“||I really like you, and I didn't want to do this, but I had to go with the majority. I'm very sorry. I think there will be great things in store for you.||”|
|“||Palomita, I'm sorry, but it was just time to do this.||”|
|“||This is pretty much self-explanatory.||”|
|“||Unfortunately, you know exactly why you are leaving, it is for the strength of the tribe. No ill will. Best of luck.||”|
|“||Sorry, Paloma, but we need a strong tribe and you're the weakest link. Hope to see you afterward.||”|
|“||I probably like you more than anyone else on our tribe, but if you're going to come out on Survivor without a physical bone in your body, you probably should have come up with a few more tricks.||”|
|“||Sorry dude, better you than me.||”|

- This episode contains the only two challenges Crystal won throughout the season.
- The episode also marks the only time that Crystal and Ken never attended tribal council.
- This episode marks the longest gap between a castaway winning immunity and using said immunity, as Marcus won immunity on Day 1 and didn't attend Tribal Council until Day 9.
