Story

Day 6

At Ta Keo as the Survivors come back from Tribal Council. Spencer Bledsoe thanks the tribe for keeping him. Spencer knows he needs to play a more social game from now on and he wants to change and take advantage of his second chance at the game. Terry Deitz is pleased Shirin Oskooi is gone and is confident he's at the top of the heap and is playing a good social game. He's got his sights set on Spencer if they go back to Tribal again soon.

Jeff Probst welcomes the Survivors to talk to him. He asks Ta Keo about sending Shirin home. Woo Hwang says they have better team unity now. Kass McQuillen is surprised to see Shirin is gone. Jeff tells them to drop their buffs and says they're splitting into three tribes. He says six people will be at Ta Keo, six at Bayon and six to a new beach where they have to start from scratch like they're just beginning the game. Andrew Savage isn't happy about this twist since he doesn't know anyone on the other tribe.

They have to draw buffs blindly and then they open to see what color buff they have. Anyone with a yellow buff has to start at the new camp. The new tribe is Angkor. Jeff then sends them back to camp. Andrew is not pleased. Spencer is thrilled because it improved his odds.

The new tribes were as follows:

At Angkor, the new tribe check out the new camp. They have to start over with a shelter and fire and find they have no food. Jeff Varner tells Woo that Andrew is going to get on his nerves.

Woo, Jeff Varner, Peih-Gee Law and Abi-Maria Gomes talk about sticking together. Andrew and Tasha Fox are concerned about being in the minority on the new tribe and know they are targets. Keith Nale, Joe Anglim, Terry, Kelley Wentworth, and Kass chat and Terry is confident he can swing votes his way. They have food and decide to make chicken for dinner to celebrate. They cook up some chicken and rice. Kass and Ciera Eastin talk about how great this swap is since they have four Bayon that can stick tight plus a strong group for challenges.

Kelley Wentworth says she thinks Terry might have an Hidden Immunity Idol since he was out looking for it, but she's lying because she's the one who has it but wants to throw him under the bus in case they're targeting the two former Ta Keo. At Bayon, the new tribemates talk and the alliances are Jeremy Collins, Kimmi Kappenberg, Monica Padilla, and Stephen Fishbach, and Spencer and Kelly Wiglesworth in the minority. Stephen is thrilled to be in a new camp and not be at the bottom. He feels safe and confident. Spencer has decided to play with more feelings.

He talks to Jeremy about his girlfriend and not being comfortable telling her that he loves her, and he's trying to bond with Jeremy to get further into the game. Jeremy gives him some relationship advice and this does make Jeremy like him better and he says he trusts him and likes him.

Day 8

Over at Angkor, everyone sits in the shelter trying to stay less wet and Terry stands out in the rain and rants. Tasha says she knows what it's like not to have food or shelter from her last season.

Tasha is pleased to see that Peih-Gee and Abi-Maria don't like each other and hopes to leverage this to keep safe. Once the rain stops, Abi-Maria talks to Tasha about her former tribe. Tasha says her old tribe got along together and tells Abi-Maria that if she sticks with her, they can join with her former people once they merge. Abi-Maria is listening to her and considering what to do. Tasha and Terry talk about getting to the jury. Tasha talks about them needing to keep them for merge because the other tribes have more of her people.

Terry is now worried that the others will convince Peih-Gee and Abi-Maria if they're also pitching those women.

Day 9

At Bayon, everyone's chasing a tiny Scorpion out of their food. Stephen talks about the advantage they have since it's a 4-2 majority but is also worried about the Hidden Immunity Idol. He talks to Jeremy about it and says it could bond their alliance. The alliance goes looking around. Jeremy is frustrated looking for it since it can be anywhere. Stephen says it must be somewhere noticeable but he hasn't found it yet.

Then Jeremy finds a clue in a little tree full of leaves. It tells him where to find the idol at the next challenge. At the Immunity Challenge, Jeff takes back the idol from Monica then explains the challenge, there are two Immunity Idols for the time being. The castaways have to push a cart through a course, get keys, unlock chests and put them on the cart. They have to get three chests, take the cart apart, move it through a barricade, put it together, then open the chests to get pieces for a puzzle.

Jeff says this was the first challenge from the brains vs brawns vs beauty (Cagayan) challenge. Spencer, Tasha, and Kass have all played this challenge. The challenge starts and everyone is playing hard. Spencer gets the key for Bayon then Woo gets it for Angkor and Kelley Wentworth for Ta Keo. Woo gets the second key then Spencer and Kelley Wentworth. Ta Keo has their three chests. Jeremy takes the Hidden Immunity Idol when no one is looking. Bayon gets their third chest then Angkor.

Everyone is neck and neck as they take the carts apart but Ta Keo is slightly ahead with Bayon in a close second as they start to deconstruct and reconstruct the carts. Ta Keo is still in the lead. Now some hard obstacles. Bayon and Angkor get their chests and move out. Ta Keo makes it past the obstacles since they cleared first. Ta Keo has Joe and Kass working the puzzle. The other two are unloading their chests now. Peih-Gee and Tasha then Monica and Spencer working the puzzles for the others.

The puzzle is a large round number. Joe and Kass are way in the lead, while Jeremy tags in for Monica and Woo subs in for Tasha. Angkor is way back and Joe and Kass have a solid lead then slide in the last piece. They win immunity. It's down to Bayon and Angkor. It's very close now. Bayon is down to five and Angkor has 10 pieces to go. Jeremy is frantically solving the puzzle and they have just two pieces left. Bayon has one piece left and they complete it to also win immunity. Angkor will go to Tribal Council.

Tasha points out that Jeff Varner is mouthing to one of the other tribes and calls him out to everyone else. Jeff asks what happened at the end of the challenge. Jeff Varner says he looked at Kelly Wentworth. Tasha says morale is down and then Woo asks why Jeff Varner is making new alliances. Jeff Varner is annoying everyone already and they haven't even started talking about how to vote. Jeff says this could be the beginning of a great underdog story and says he'll see them at Tribal tonight.

Andrew thought he was going home but now is hopeful that Jeff Varner's screw up will send him home. Andrew goes to Peih-Gee and Woo about Jeff Varner and tells them that Jeff Varner has been lazy around camp and isn't any good at challenges. Woo talks to Peih-Gee and says they will still be in the majority but she wants to think carefully since Andrew is jealous. Tasha talks to Abi-Maria and they decide to vote out Jeff Varner. Abi-Maria says Varner is too unpredictable and wants to send him home, but she also thinks Peih-Gee is sketchy.

Abi-Maria goes to talk to Woo and Peih-Gee and they tell her that the others want to send Jeff Varner home. Abi-Maria says she knows she's on the bottom with the others and isn't with the new people. Peih-Gee wonders why Abi-Maria is showing so much animosity and now Peih-Gee wants Abi-Maria out. Peih-Gee goes to Andrew and Tasha to ask them to eliminate Abi-Maria. Then Andrew goes to Abi-Maria and tells her what Peih-Gee said to them and then Abi-Maria goes to Jeff Varner and asks him to target Peih-Gee. He's happy to have a target off him.

Tasha agrees to work with Peih-Gee but Tasha isn't sure what she wants to do. She says Abi-Maria is unpredictable and Peih-Gee can't make up her mind. Each of Abi-Maria and Peih-Gee are targeting the other so the members from the losing tribe get to make the swing vote decision. Tasha and Andrew get their torches for the first time. Andrew says he was stunned by the tribe switch since they would lose their established camp and now they're in the minority.

Jeff asks Peih-Gee if Tasha and Andrew are in trouble and she says that's usually how it works. Then Jeff asks Jeff Varner what happened. He says he signaled Kelly Wiglesworth and Tasha called him a rat. He says he's had no sleep and food and he had a meltdown. Tasha says he's part of this tribe and shouldn't be cross-communicating and thinks he's disloyal. Jeff Varner says he's happy to come out of tonight with no votes to send him out. Jeff Varner says there are so many names that have been thrown around.

Jeff Varner says he's heard his name, Peih-Gee and Abi-Maria and says it looks like Andrew and Tasha are now at the top of the heap and can control this vote. Abi-Maria says she knows they could be targeting her based on camp conversations she wasn't part of. Peih-Gee says she wants to be with people she can trust and tells the others she's loyal and they can trust her. Abi-Maria says she's been working around camp and is committed to the new tribe. Jeff Varner says he has no idea what will happen tonight.

He repeats that Andrew and Tasha are in charge of tonight's vote as he sees it. Peih-Gee votes for Abi-Maria and Abi votes for Peih-Gee and says that Peih-Gee talks too much. No one plays an Hidden Immunity Idol, and Andrew and Tasha blindside Peih-Gee, making her the third person eliminated from Survivor: Cambodia. Abi-Maria smiles with satisfaction and Peih-Gee wishes Woo luck.

Abi-Maria tells Woo that's the second time he wrote down her name. Now Woo knows that he's at the bottom of the tribe and Abi-Maria has her sights set on him.

Challenges

Immunity

Challenges: Draggin' the Dragon
Each tribe would push a cart through an obstacle course. At each tower, they would retrieve a key. The key would be used to unlock a chest. They would then put the chest on the cart and continue on. Once they have collected all three chests, they must then take the cart apart, slide it through a barricade, put it back together and make their way to the end. Two tribe members would then use the pieces inside the chest to assemble a giant dragon puzzle. The first two tribes to finish win.

Voting Confessionals

(voting for Abi-Maria) I wanted you out since Day 1. Hopefully, it'll work this time.

Peih-Gee


(voting for Peih-Gee) You talk way too much. You can't shut your mouth. Take a chill pill, girl.

Abi-Maria



Final Words

They got me good. I guess I got blindsided. I feel really disappointed in Tasha and Savage because I trusted them-- obviously, it was misplaced. I wasn't expecting this, I thought I was gonna go a lot further. But you know what? If they wanna throw their it-- their lot in with Abi, like, good luck to them. You know, she's a handful.
