Sleeping with the Enemy is the eighth episode of Survivor: The Amazon.
Challenge: Mud Bungee
In groups of three, the contestants must retrieve five colored flags in a mud pit while attached to a bungee cord. The winning team moves onto the final round – on their own, they will retrieve three flags.
Reward: Bath, banana split, and brownie sundae
Winner: Dave Johnson (shared with Deena Bennett)
Challenge: Face Off
This challenge will use questions about Amazonian (and Brazilian) culture. Players each have a mask held in place in front of a battering ram. Three chops of the rope and the battering ram smashes the mask, causing its corresponding castaway to be out of the challenge. The last person remaining with his or her mask wins immunity.
Winner: Jenna Morasca

|“||(voting for Dave) He's a great guy, I really enjoy his company, but his time has come.||”|
|“||(voting for Matthew) We've been honest with each since Day 1. Think it's interesting how both, I guess, perceived physical powerhouses are now dueling it, one for one. Has it come down to this, I hope it's you and not me. Nothing personal. Take care.||”|
|“||(voting for Dave) I have total, total respect for everything you've done in this game. You've played it well. You've played it hard. Those are the reasons we have to get you out.||”|
|“||I wish the best for everybody out there. And I think, uh, you know, on closing terms there's a great, uh, Nepalese saying that goes, uh, "ke garne, ne parne." It means, "what to do?" And, uh, I'm here right now and I'm hungry, and it's, uh, it's food time, so take care.||”|
Still in the Running
- This episode shares its name with "Sleeping with the Enemy", the eighth episode of Survivor: Thailand.
- The episode title is said during a confessional by Rob Cesternino regarding Heidi Strobel, who is part of his alliance, and how she cuddles at night in the shelter with Dave Johnson, Rob's intended target at any upcoming Tribal Council where he hasn't won individual immunity.
