(voting for Malcolm) This is for you. Hope you go home tonight.


Final Words

I felt bad for Abi. Uh, she's crying and everybody ripped her apart. Uh, I've kind of learned to deal with her, but, I mean, I needed to for my game. Malcolm has a lot of power right now, he's definitely someone that they needed to get rid of, but they didn't want to do anything with it. I have a ton of regrets, but I feel good about how I left the island. I'm not happy I left it, but I did what I could.

Behind The Scenes

  • In an interview with Dalton Ross, Jeff Probst stated that the test run of the Reward Challenge was more of a physical showdown compared to how the castaways did it. Instead of focusing on flipping the drums, the members of the Dream Team had to wrestle each other.[2]
  • Pete tries to convinces Abi to let him use her Hidden Immunity Idol. Abi refuses to do so because she does not want to come across as "stupid". Pete rebuffs the argument, saying that Brandon Hantz giving up his Immunity Necklace (and was promptly voted out) in Survivor: South Pacific befitted "stupid" more.

Life at Ponderosa


  • During the Reward Challenge, the teams are coincidentally separated by age where the tribe members that are over 40 years old are in the yellow team, while those that are under 40 years old are in the red team.
  • During the last stage of the Immunity Challenge, the three castaways who competed were placed on platforms and boats whose colors represent their original tribe (Carter Williams for Kalabaw, Michael Skupin for Tandang, and Denise Stapley for Matsing).
    • Coincidentally, each one would go on to be the highest ranking member of their respective original tribes (although Michael ties with Lisa Whelchel for the highest-ranking Tandang member).
  • The four who won reward were involved in Tribal Council proceedings during the episode.
  • The eventual Final Three contestants all voted against Abi-Maria at this episode's Tribal Council.
    • With Abi-Maria being the last Hidden Immunity Idol user of the season, the Final Three also voted against all the castaways who used an idol during the Tribal Council they have used it (as part of a split vote strategy).

Episode Title

  • The episode title comes from a line spoken by Denise Stapley in one of her confessionals, referring to Abi-Maria's negativity around camp.
