Surprise and... Surprise Again! is the eleventh episode of Survivor: Vanuatu.
Challenge: Played Out
The challenge was a memory test about what has played out in the previous challenges of this season. The castaways were asked a series of questions, and the player who answered the most questions correctly won the reward.
Reward: The winner's loved one will have an overnight stay at the Alinta camp.
Winner: Eliza Orlins
Challenge: Love is Blind
Both the castaways and their loved ones will participate in the challenge. The castaways must sit on towers and verbally guide their blindfolded loved ones through a series of obstacles in order to retrieve bags of puzzle pieces. Once all the bags are retrieved, the castaways and their loved one must work together to assemble the puzzle. First castaway to complete the puzzle wins immunity.

|“||(voting for Eliza) My vote's for Eliza. Um, group consensus. Everybody agreed, but you are like a little sister.||”|
|“||(voting for Eliza) Sorry, Eliza. I had to stick with the team, and I guess it's your time to go.||”|
|“||I am just floored. I just got done saying how it wasn't a life or death situation for me at today's challenge. I was fooled. I was fooled big time. I'd love to know who voted for me 'cause I am just freaking flabbergasted at how someone can just lie directly to your face. I feel like the world's biggest idiot.||”|
