Challenges

Immunity (Day 22)

Challenge: Meso Soup
Each castaway will dig to retrieve a club and use it to smash a tile. The first six move onto the next round, where they must submerge their head in a water trough, take in a mouth full of water, and then crawl under the trough to spit the water into a bowl, which fills up a tube. The first three to fill up the tube move onto the final round, where they must solve a block puzzle. The first person to get the puzzle right wins immunity.
Winner: Grant Mattos

Immunity (Day 24)

Challenge: Gang Hang
The castaways will hang from a bar for as long as they can. After twenty minutes, they will be allowed to use only their legs to hold them up. Once they drop from the bar, they are out of the challenge. Last person left hanging wins immunity.
Additional Stipulation: Before the challenge starts, the castaways were given an opportunity to eat cheeseburgers in exchange for sitting-out in the challenge, forfeiting their chance to get individual immunity.

Trivia

  • This episode marked the earliest appearance of a Second Chances challenge (a challenge that consists of parts of previous challenges of that season) under the guise of Meso Soup.
  • On Day 22, Rob Mariano reached his 100th day of playing Survivor.
  • This episode was the first time a castaway tried to jokingly make a vote worth more votes than it actually was. David Murphy tried to make the vote worth 4 times the amount while trying to vote off Rob Mariano, writing "Rob, Rob, Rob, Rob, please count as four votes" on his parchment. After Jeff Probst refuted the attempt, David replied by saying "didn't hurt to try".

Episode Title

  • The episode's namesake is said by Rob Mariano as a new strategy employed during this episode where all Ometepe tribemates are paired up, never go anywhere alone and don't talk to anyone from the Zapatera tribe.
