On night 27 Christa is accused of sabotaging the fish food source by throwing them in the jungle. She swears she didn't do it, but she can't prove anything. Sandra tells us she did it. At the reward challenge, the survivors got to see their loved ones (moms, hubsands, fiances, etc). Jon receives news that his grandmother had died. The other survivor gave up their chance to see their loved ones so Jon could find out more about his grandmother. Jon and his buddy went back to Balboa Beach for 24 hours and the rest went to another beach for 24 hours. Back on Balboa, Jon jokes about how his grandmother didn't die and the fact everybody else believed him. At the Immunity Challenge, the survivors worked a puzzle where they form as many words from "SURVIVOR PEARL ISLANDS" as they can. Burton wins. As the survivors are leaving Jeff calls them back. Burton spelt a word wrong and was stripped of immunity. Lill, Darrah, and Sandra were left and got a new set of words. It was a timed trial and Darrah won Immunity with 14 words. At tribal council Jon's white lie went unknown as Tijuana became the 10th person voted out.
The rules of this game are simple: average Americans are abandoned in the middle of some of the most unforgiving places on earth. Divided into teams, they particiapte in challenges and every three days, the losing tribe must trek to Tribal Council to vote out one of their own. Halfway through the game, the game shifts to individual competitions when the tribes merge and become one, making the game every man for himself.
The game is simple: Outwit, Outplay, Outlast, by winning Immunity, thus not being eligible to have votes cast against yourself. However, the players must be careful about who they send packing - after the merge, a jury of seven begins to form, and each week they return to watch the Tribal Council ceremony. At the end of the game, they vote for one of the members of the final two to win One Million Dollars. Who will become the next Survivor?
Generally, each season begins with a twist - something different to surprise the new castaways. Survivor is a game of adaptation, and the final two of each season, listed below, were the players most able to adapt to their surroundings and to the people they are playing with. Survivor focuses on the people, and the social commentary that surrounds them. How can these players Outwit, Outplay, and Outlast is the question that the game revolves around.
