The first one won the car and a very big clean up including a shower, food, and an over night stay. The other 2 would join the winner in the stay overnight. Ami had the lead most of the way, while Twila and Scout stayed very behind. Eliza was right behind Ami. Julie and Chris fought for 3rd.

In a tight race for the third spot on the trip, Chris beat Julie by just a little bit. The 3 Survivors jumped in the car and headed out.
Back at camp, Scout and Twila were mad about the reward, while Julie just chilled. At the resort, Ami tried pursuading Eliza and Chris to join her saying how she always had their back. Chris didnt believe her for a second, while Eliza started to wonder. When they returned, there was tension about how Eliza was chilling with Ami and Julie. Eliza was saying how they were sisters to each other.
At immunity the survivors found out their challenge featured a shuffleboard with differnt islands on them. They would slide their chips down the board, and it had to hit an island for a point. The others could either try and get their own point or try knocking each others chips off the board. The end featured a close tie between Ami and Chris, but in the end, Chris had won his first immunity. Before tribal council, Ami, Julie, and Eliza were discussing how Scout had never had a vote against her and it would be a shock if she was the one to go. Meanwhile, Chris thought about the chances of a tie.
