Immunity (Day 37)
Challenge: Maya Maze
The Final Four castaways must move through a giant macaw-shaped maze to find one of six stations, grab a three-sided color-coded puzzle piece (or pieces), then get to the end of the pool, cross pontoons to the other side, climb a ladder to the solving stations, cross a bridge, and climb down a ladder to re-enter the maze. First to get all eight of their pieces to their solving station and form one of three possible images (jaguar, crocodile, or monkey) wins.
Winner: Rafe Judkins

Danni, Lydia, & Stephenie
Immunity (Day 38)
Challenge: Wobbly Boots
The castaways must use two thin ropes to help them get onto a board sitting on a very tiny fulcrum joint, making it hard to balance, then last as long as they can without touching the platform beneath the board. After one hour, they must let go of one of the ropes, then let go of the second 30 minutes later, at which point neither hand can touch any part of the challenge setup. The last person left wins.
Winner: Danni Boatwright

|“||Lydia, you've been a mother to everyone out here, especially me. I know how much I care about you, but, tonight, I have to go with the vote that's gonna put me in a really good position to get to the Final Two. I love you.||”|
|“||(voting for Danni) We became good friends, but it's between you and me, and somebody has to go. So, I wanna stay, so, um, I'm sorry, but, uh, I'd rather stay than go, so... you're on the chopping block.||”|
|“||Lydia, you're one of the most wonderful people that I've ever met. I hate writing your name down, but I have to stick with my alliance with Rafe and Stephenie. So, sorry. I hope you'll forgive me.||”|
|“||Lydia, you are awesome. I love you. You've made my days out here so bright and cheery. Thank you. Sorry about this, but, um, I gave my word to Danni and Rafe, and I can't turn on it now if I wanna try to get to the two. See you later.||”|
|“||This is the hardest thing I have ever done in my whole life. I am very proud of myself. Just the history alone and to be on the ruins on a daily basis for 37 days was a very, very incredible experience. I would not trade it for the world.||”|

| VOTED OFF:|
|“||I think I played a smart game and as honest a game as I could. I am really proud of myself. I am proud of what I did. I stayed true to my moral compass and I betrayed people when I thought I should and I stuck with people when I thought I should. Danni, I understand the decision you made but I thought you were the one person who would take me to the Final Two and you didn't, so, Stephenie, I am absolutely rooting for you. I think you played a great game. I will be voting for you tomorrow night.||”|
