Night 30

Jacaré returns to Camp, where conflict brews over Alex's blindside, which angers Jenna and Heidi.

Day 31

Day 32

Day 33

In a close battle, Jenna won immunity. After having Jenna and Heidi, as well as Rob, come to her asking her to join their respective alliances, Christy became the swing vote but refused  to commit to any alliance, as she was unsure which one would take her the furthest. This worried Rob, so he conspired with Jenna and Heidi to team together and take out Christy due to her lack of commitment. 

At Tribal Council, Christy boasted about being in the diver's seat. Jenna gave her immunity to Heidi as she felt Heidi was in more danger than she was. When the votes were read, a stunned Christy was blindsided 4-2 with Butch being the only one to vote with her against Jenna. 


Challenge: Paddle
The six contestants must dig up a paddle hidden beneath a group of sand mounds. Once they do that, they take one of four local canoes, paddle to a floating crate, read the multiple choice trivia question, choose the bag corresponding to the correct answer, paddle to the other side of the river, open the bag at one of two solving stations, and solve the Anaconda puzzle (if the wrong answer was chosen, the pieces will be black, and players must return). First to solve the puzzle wins.
Reward: One-hour loved one visit at a shared picnic.
Additional Stipulation: Revealed after the challenge, the winner could give up visit so the others could all have ten minutes with their loved one at a shared picnic.
Winner: Matthew von Ertfelda (gave up reward to Jacaré)

Voting Confessionals

(voting for Jenna) Your wish has come true; you're going home, you're getting a shower, you're eating good food. Go look beautiful, be happy. We don't need you.


(voting for Jenna) I think you're a great girl. This is nothing against you personally, but the alliance is very strong. I'm staying with the alliance all the way.


Final Words

(crying) I'm so pissed off! I didn't deserve to be voted out. I didn't! I developed trust and I knew from Day 1-- don't trust anybody. I can leave here knowing that I'm a role model and that I can make a difference. I'm gonna make sure those freaking evil stepsisters of mine are not going to win the million dollars! Not gonna happen!
