So You Think You Can Meke? is the eighth episode of Survivor: Fiji.


Day 20

Alex, Mookie, and Edgardo search for and find their camp's Hidden Immunity Idol while Lisi and Dreamz are asleep. The 3 agree not to tell the other members of their alliance. Lisi wakes up shortly afterwards and is onto Mookie. Lisi begins to search for the idol and Mookie goes as far as to help her dig to maintain the belief that the idol is still hidden.

At Moto, the tribe learns that their next challenge is a dance-off, and they spend the rest of the morning learning how to "meke" from Fijian dancers. Ravu also practices and they apply face paint to get in the spirit of things.

At the challenge, Moto performs, then Ravu. The approve of both tribes' appearance and spirit, but they felt that Ravu was less coordinated and thus Moto is rewarded with a great Fijian feast. Lisi is sent to Exile Island where she struggles with the weather, the state of her tribe, and thoughts of quitting the game. 

Day 21

Earl and Michelle discuss whether their next target should be Stacey or Boo. Dreamz hopes for a merge soon and Edgardo worries about where Dreamz's allegiance lies.

At the Immunity Challenge, Boo scores a bullseye with the blow darts to put Moto in the lead. In the second round, Yau-Man has the closest shot with the spear to increase Moto's lead. Edgardo feels confident with the bow and arrow for the third round but he can't even hit the target, giving Moto an easy immunity win.

At Ravu, Lisi's frustrations lead to her ask Alex to vote her out next. The rest of the tribe is on board with that and they discuss how they are coping at this stage of the game. Lisi changes her mind however, and urges Alex and Edgardo to vote for Dreamz with her. Her change of mind comes too late though as her tribemates vote her out, making her the second member of the jury.

(voting for Lisi) Sorry about this, Lisi, but I need someone who's going to be in it for the long run, and I hope you figure everything out, and I hope we can still be friends. Take care.


(voting for Lisi) I'll see you at the other side.


(voting for Dreamz) You're a grown man; consider a name change.


(voting for Lisi) I've been waiting to do this for long time.


Final Words

You can sit there and say whatever but I know who I am. It is not a matter of will. When the ship is sinking, you get off the ship. Another thing Ravu, you guys are never going to get it together. You guys are losers over and over and over again. There is nothing I can say of them try to hold onto yourselves because together you're nothing.
