The Circle of Life is the third episode of Survivor: Kaôh Rōng.
After the previous Tribal Council, Scot approaches Alecia to explain why he had witten her name down instead of Jennifer's. Through her confessionals, she explains how she believes Scot is merely trying to cover himself, and that it changes nothing in their rocky relationship. The rest of the tribe soon begins to ponder if they made the right choice keeping Alecia.
Challenge: Rice Race
The tribes would jump off a platform in the water and swim out to their tribe's boat where they would retrieve 3 bags of rice. They would then work together to push and pull those bags through a narrow hole in a wall of bamboo. Next they would have to cross a balance beam to get the bags of rice to the beach. Once on the beach, they would tear open the bags of rice to retrieve 3 balls. Next, one tribe member at a time must balance on a beam, while attempting to maneuver a ball up a wall past a series of holes to the top. The first two tribes to get all three balls to the top win immunity.
Reward: The winning tribe gets a choice between comfort and emotional items; the runner-up tribe receives the option not taken by the winners.
Winners (in order of finish): Gondol and To Tang

Voting Confessionals (Revote)
Liz's full final words were uploaded to YouTube.
|“||I was very confident, that whether we won or lost, things would work out for me, and I really don't know what happened that made my tribe want to vote me out tonight. I don't think the numbers lied to me. It's the people who lied to me. And when you count fictitious promises, you get a fictitious total.||”|
