Story

Night 13

After J.T.'s blindside, Aubry struggles to find her standing in the Nuku tribe. She finds that, despite her best efforts to gel with the tribe, it is all for naught. It is clear that Aubry is divided from the rest of the tribe, and she states that she needs to learn from Sandra's tricks if she wanted to continue in the game.

I went into Tribal thinking Michaela was going to go home, and they voted out J.T.. I'm constantly on the bottom, and I feel like I've been trying really hard to build relationships with those people, but then it all blows up in my face.

Aubry


Clearly, Sandra is running the show. And I feel like she's cutting my legs out from under me like a slow death. Without a doubt, Sandra is the best player here. She is the queen of this game, and I need to learn a thing or two from her.

Aubry


On the Mana tribe, Tai continues his search for his second Hidden Immunity Idol.

I found a clue earlier. The clue say, "Go look for some board." I tore my brain, and I was thinking, in the waterwell is where the board would be. So I got to make a move. I gotta-- I gotta get this idol, but I need to make it quick before everybody wake up. The clue say, "Wet the board. When you find a board with tribe symbol, dig underneath that. The idol is there."

Tai


He heads to the well, where he predicts the idol will be located. He wets the boards according to the clue, and out of sheer luck manages to find the board with Mana's insignia. He digs fervently below the board and retrieves the idol.

The last board I wet, there it comes. It's bright, white symbol of the anchor. That is so cool! I'm the luckiest guy. I found the idol, the second, within three day. Last time I played an idol, I changed the direction of the of the game. Malcolm went home. It shift the power. This one I don't see me using it for, uh, anytime soon. We'll see. I'm playing game now. I'm the Game Changer, and, um, I couldn't be any happier.

Day 16

Challenges

Immunity Challenge: Cargo Salvage
The contestants had to dive in and climb onto a platform. They must then cross a monkey-bar by treading over a rope. They will then lift heavy puzzle pieces into a sled situated on a platform. Once all the puzzle pieces have been collected, the tribes must drag their sleds down the platform, up a hill (with the help of logs), and onto the finish. Three members of each tribe will then solve a barrel puzzle. The first tribe to complete their puzzle wins.
Winner: Mana

(voting against Tai) Tai, you're a fool. You threw my name out there, and what you don't know is when you come after me, I bury you. The queen stays queen. Adiós.

Final Words

Jeff finally got to snuff my torch, but I think I did good for 16 days considering I'm a two-time winner. I owe a lot to Survivor, and I love Survivor, and it's in my heart. I don't want to get teary, but I know why I live the life that I live and it's because of Survivor. There will never be another two-time winner except the queen.
