Would You Be My Brutus Today? is the twelfth episode of Survivor: Pearl Islands.
Challenge: Water Obstacle Course
This is an obstacle course decided in randomly-chosen trios, and with positions on the course also randomly chosen. One player must cross a floating beam from one platform to another, jump into the water, swim to two floating crates, untying a paddle at each, swim to the platform, and climb on to find the second team member. The other two must jump into the water, dive down to unhook three barrels, making them rise, swim to the next platform, untie paddle beneath it, and climb on to find the final team member. All three must then swim to shore, get into their boat, and row back to the starting platform. First team back wins.

|“||(voting for Christa) Whether you like it or don't like it, learn to love it because it's the best thing going today. Whoo!||”|
|“||(voting for Lillian) Hopefully, everybody else is doing the same thing and voting for you.||”|
|“||(voting for Lillian) You've always treated me with kindness. This is totally strategic, because I'd hate to go up against you. You're too much of a kind person and I know they'd just hand you the money and I can't have that happen. Adiós.||”|
|“||I wasn't quite expecting to get voted off today. It really surprises me to see how everybody out here fooled me at every moment of this entire game but I have made a really great friend in Sandra and Rupert. Both of them have kept me happy this whole entire time. It has been an adventure of a lifetime.||”|
Still in the Running
