Voting Confessionals

Shirin was shown writing Spencer's name down on the parchment.

(voting for Shirin) I know you're writing my name down, too. I don't have a bad thing to say about you.


Final Words

Ugh… I feel like I didn't really get to seize my second chance. I struggled to change in a lot of key ways to make this game work for me. I was in a totally fine position until I went crazy and blew up my game. I had an awesome opening act and then… killed myself.

Behind the Scenes

  • In an interview, Jeff Probst reveals that Entertainment Weekly columnist Dalton Ross picked the location of the Hidden Immunity Idol for this episode's Reward/Immunity Challenge. The idol would have been hidden on the corner of the top of the third A-frame in the challenge.[2]
    • However, the idol was not hidden because no one from the Bayon tribe found the clue to the idol.


  • As of this episode, every single season that has aired comprising entirely of returning players has had one tribe attend the first two Tribal Councils.
  • This episode marks the second time in her Survivor career that Ciera Eastin has been the first member of her tribe to sit out a challenge.
