| VOTED OFF:|
Joe was shown writing Abi-Maria's name down on the parchment. Spencer's vote was not revealed during his confessional.
|“||(voting for Joe) You're moldy. You gotta go. And please, get a haircut. You look like a clown.||”|
|“||(voting for Joe) I have the terrifying feeling that this is either a winning or a losing vote.||”|
|“||I have no regrets. I don't leave anything back behind me and say, "I could have done this better, that better." I tried to play the best game that I knew how and I had so much fun. And I was able to reach so many goals, and just getting my dad out here… that alone, for me, was a million-dollar experience, and I have the fans to thank for it.||”|

Life at Ponderosa
Joe Anglim was emotional and stated he was disappointed he lost Immunity, but was happy to have made the family visit. He gets his customary post-game weigh-in where he lost 22 lbs. When he arrives at Ponderosa, everybody gives him a warm welcome and tell him that they're glad to have Joe at Ponderosa over Abi. Joe reveals his dad grew up with a rough life and felt he didn't have any friends until he told Joe he considered his son to be his best friend when Joe asked him to come out as his loved one.
The next day, he relaxes at the beach with the others and plays Frisbee. Later that day, he does some drawing and painting and reveals he has been doing it since he was really young.
Behind the Scenes
- According to Joe, he tried to make the Immunity Challenge harder so it could be over sooner by asking Jeff Probst if they could "go down to one hand or add more lengths of pole". Jeff accepted the offer as Keith agreed to, but he had collapsed before Jeff could give them more lengths of pole.
- This episode marks the first time that previous Survivor castaways (Val Collins and Dale Wentworth) return as loved ones for a castaway on the current season.
- The reason why there was separate immunity for men and women was because of the weight of the poles.
- Joe Anglim becomes the first castaway to be voted out this season after improving on his previous finish.
- The episode title is said by Spencer Bledsoe in reference to the heartbreak he felt every time Kelley Wentworth overlooked him to join her on the reward after winning the Loved Ones Challenge.
