The Outcasts tribe vote back two players into the game - Burton and Lillian. The two report back to their original sides, who both act as though they are glad to see the previously eliminated person. The day after goes smoothly, even though Lill feels that her team is very lazy - and she is even more worried about her stay on the island...the Morgan tribe has run out of food. Thankfully, at the challenge the next day, the teams merge into the Balboa tribe, and after a win for Burton at the challenge, everyone goes back to the Morgan beach, where suspicions fly and both sides struggle to gain Lil's trust. At Tribal Council, Lill sides with the former Drake tribe by voting out Andrew, the obvious leader of the former Morgan tribe.
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?
