We join our survivors in the middle of a post tribal council gathering and everyone is recapping and reliving the vote that sent Queen Sarah to Loser Lodge and flushed out two hidden immunity idols.
Spencer, angry that Kass flipped and went with the alliance of five, says she let estrogen make her decision. Kass on the other hand thinks she made a good move, and says she's still a free agent.
When morning comes, Kass is fighting with Morgan, who thinks Kass was rude when she instructed her to go get water. Kass says Morgan was being rude to her, and later she compares Morgan to a 14-year-old dog who has started peeing on the carpet.
Morgan thinks Kass hates her because she, Morgan, is cuter than Kass. And what's more, Morgan has always been cuter than Kass. Morgan plans to get Kass voted off next. Let's call it the rule of Karma Cuteness.
Today's challenge divides the remaining 10 into two groups, involving a watery obstacle course, knot untying, climbing, chest heaving, and puzzle solving. The first team to finish gets a product placement -- dinner at an outback version of an Outback restaurant.
The purple team -- LJ, Morgan, Jefra, Jeremiah and Spencer -- win the challenge and head off to stuff their faces with steak and s'mores. Tony, Kass, Trish, Tasha and Woo head back to camp with nothing.
The losers discuss the winners and who might be next to go. Kass doesn't consider herself a flipper, and she doesn't care who goes next as long as it's not her. Tony doesn't really know how to read her.
After a lunch of coconut and rice, Tony starts to search for a new hidden immunity idols, but comes up empty.
Meanwhile, lunch is served at the Outback and all the players turn into restaurant critics, giving the Outback five stars. Spencer is stuffing his face and ignoring his napkin until the end of the meal, and when he finally uses it, he finds a piece of paper hidden inside. He can't read it until he gets back to camp and the rain (mostly) stops.
Sure enough, it's a clue and he heads off to search with Woo, who is savvy to the ways of "Survivor," hot on his trail. Woo uses his Ninja stealth mode to spy on Spencer and he does pretty well until Spencer practically steps on him.
They both pretend they are just taking a walk, but Woo finds Spencer's pants at the side of the stream and when he picks them, the clue falls out. Spencer realizes what has happened, but Woo trades his Ninja moves for Sonic the Hedgehog and is gone, clue in hand. Spencer is not happy.
Woo comes back to camp and tells LJ and Tony. Spencer recruits Jeremiah and soon everyone is searching.
You can tell its serious, Tony says, when Morgan, who can't be distinguished from a pillow, is up hunting.
Spencer feels like society is crumbling and brought them to this, side-by-side idol hunting. But he actually finds the idol while Kass is searching right next to him. The idol he finds is a regular one, however, not the one imbued with "special" powers, which we really hope does something cool like allows you banish people.
Today's challenge involves balancing on your toes while keeping a block pressed to a beam overhead, with your head. A few seconds in, Kass is out, followed by Jeremiah and Trish. Next is Tony. The others settle in and after 30 minutes or so, Morgan wobbles and is gone, followed by Woo.
Jefra lasts an hour, but then she slips. LJ seems to get a cramp and falls out, leaving Tasha and Spencer.
At 90 minutes, Spencer struggles while Tasha looks like a statue. But then suddenly, Tasha wobbles a bit and drops the block, giving immunity to Spencer.
The new alliance of six -- Tony, LJ, Kass, Trish, Woo and Jefra -- gather to discuss who to vote off. Tony wants Morgan off, and plan B would be Tasha.
The alliance of four, is divided. Morgan wants to vote for Kass, but Spencer wants to vote off Tony. But more than that, he wants to get Kass back on his side, get her to tell him who the other side is targeting, and then use his hidden idol to turn the tables. Oh blindsides are so much fun.
Kass considers her options. She thinks voting Tony off is a good move because he could pull jury votes. Morgan hasn't got a chance of winning the million, but still, she's annoying and voting for her would show the power alliance a bit of loyalty.
Jeff Probst revisits the last tribal. Tony says a wind swept through that changed the balance of power; Kass says she was that wind. Eyes roll. Spencer says he felt betrayed by her vote.
Morgan thinks she's not a threat. Nobody likes her so nobody is going to vote to give her the million. Trish says that's true, plus Morgan doesn't do any work around the camp, so that makes her unpopular.
Morgan owns up to it; she says she's used to people doing things for her because, you know, she's cute. If you could pick to be ugly or cute, everybody would pick cute.
Probst points out that Kass is unpredictable and could swing either way. Does that make them nervous? Sort of, but they have a lot to offer Kass and they all talk about how they all are equals -- nobody is on the bottom.
But it's time to vote. Probst tallies the votes and asks for hidden idols before reading the ballots. No one, meaning Spencer, does.
The votes are divided between Tony and Morgan, and we say a fond farewell to Morgan, who joins Sarah on the jury. The game just got a lot less cute.
Next time: With nine left, paranoia rears its ugly head.
