The Great White Shark Hunter is the seventh episode of Survivor: Palau.


Day 16

The morning after Tribal Council, Steph was still holding out hope for her seriously outnumbered tribe. At Koror, Ian hauled in a massive clam. After eating out the meat, they noticed sharks surrounding the shells they had put in the water. Suddenly, Tom caught a shark using a machete, impressing the rest of the tribe and one-upping Ian. 

Day 17

After Koror won the Reward Challenge, Gregg talked with Jenn about how she perceived him to be standoffish and how that was viewed by the tribe. It concerned Tom and Coby in particular.

Day 18

Bobby Jon caught a giant clam and a small black fish. They then practiced the slide puzzle before the challenge.

After the challenge, Bobby Jon viewed himself as the swing vote, wondering whether he should honor his agreement with Steph or to acknowledge his commonalities and his bond with Ibrehem. Steph also tried to form somewhat of an alliance with Ib, but he simply said he didn't know. At Tribal, Bobby Jon sided with Steph to eliminate Ibrehem.


Challenge: S.O.S.
Tribes are told via Tree Mail that a plane will be flying over their camps. Utilizing anything around their camp, they must get the plane's attention. The tribe with the better signal (judging will be based on the creativity, yet still recognizable), according to the plane's pilot and drop master would win reward (with the plane returning to the winning team's camp, and will drop a wooden crate with the reward encased in it).
Reward: Fishing gear, wine, and military rations
Winner: Koror

Voting Confessionals


Final Words

What can I say? I totally didn't expect to be voted off tonight. So it was a big surprise. I thought me and Bobby Jon had something, but, uh, I guess I was wrong. I played the game the best way I felt like I knew how without compromising my character. I think I walk away with just a whole new respect for life, not taking things for granted. It was an experience I definitely enjoyed.
