Shocking! Simply Shocking! is the eighth episode of Survivor: Pearl Islands.
Challenge: Signal Fire
The castaways must use slingshots to break three plates hanging from a mast in order from bottom to top, transporting a fire to the crow's nest. If a player smashes a plate out of order, they can't light their crow's nest, and are eliminated. Run in three heats of three, the winners move on to the final round, where the same thing happens.
Reward: Breakfast on a yacht
Winner: Rupert Boneham (gave to Burton Roberts; shared with Lillian Morris)
Challenge: Mixed Nuts
The castaways must answer questions about pirate folklore. Each castaway who answers correctly would get to place coconuts in the bins of another castaway. When a castaway receives five coconuts, they are out of the challenge. The last castaway standing wins.
Winner: Rupert Boneham

|“||(voting for Ryan O) I'm sorry we weren't on the same team. I know you would have been good with me. I would trade you for a bunch of my guys, but it's your time to go.||”|
|“||(voting for Christa) Hey, Christa, I didn't like you before, don't like you now. You're just, plain and simply, a bitch.||”|
|“||Looks like I got snuffed out by the Drake tribe, total bummer. I thought I'd be in this to the end. I knew I wasn't a quitter, but I think I had no idea how tough I was. I wish Darrah and T a lot of luck-- not so much Lill. But, uh, best of luck to you guys. And, you got to remember one thing: I'm on the jury.||”|
