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 axe. The first tribe to open their chest and use the axe to cut a rope that would raise their tribe's flag would win.
Winner: Fang

Voting ConfessionalsEdit

Jacquie did not say anything when she voted.

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.

Kelly Czarnecki

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.

Corinne Kaplan

Palomita, I'm sorry, but it was just time to do this.

Marcus Lehman

This is pretty much self-explanatory.

Paloma Soto-Castillo

Unfortunately, you know exactly why you are leaving, it is for the strength of the tribe. No ill will. Best of luck.

Ace Gordon

Sorry, Paloma, but we need a strong tribe and you're the weakest link. Hope to see you afterward.

Bob Crowley

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.

Charlie Herschel

Sorry dude, better you than me.

Sugar Kiper

Final WordsEdit

So I got voted off, umm, I'm the first person on my tribe to go. These past nine days in Gabon have been amazing, umm, definitely been an experience, something I've never ever done before. Good luck to the whole Kota tribe, I hope you guys do awesome, but definitely, let's put it this way: if Ace wins the million dollars I'll probably never watch Survivor again.

Paloma Soto-Castillo

  • This episode contains the only two challenges Crystal Cox won throughout the season.
    • The episode also marks the only time that Crystal and Ken Hoang didn't attend Tribal Council, including times as jury members. 
  • 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.
