Story

Day 38

Day 39

Challenges

Challenge: Classic Catches
Divided into two teams of four, one by one castaways will pull a handle to release a ball into the water. They will then need to jump into the water from a high platform to get their ball. Once they have their ball, they will then attempt to shoot it into a basket. The first person to get their ball into their team's basket earns a point. The first team to three points wins.
Reward: A spread of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, chips, and soft drinks.
Winner: Yellow Team (Brian Lake, Monika Radulovic, Shane Gould, and Sharn Coombes)

Challenge: Balls Up
Castaways will have to bounce a ball on a disc while standing on a box. After an hour, castaways will have to use one hand. If at any time they drop their ball, step off the box, or their ball stops bouncing, they are out of the challenge. Last person left bouncing their ball wins.
Winner: Brian Lake

Voting Confessionals

AUS5 fenella t.png
Fenella

(voting against Sharn) I just find you to be quite annoying and quite difficult, and I just want to see the back of you.

AUS5 brian t.png
Brian

(voting against Benji) I appreciate that you saved me last time, but you just cannot be trusted.

AUS5 shonee t.png
Shonee

(voting against Sharn twice) You're a social threat, a strategic threat and a physical threat, and I'm praying that you leave and not me. I hope this works.

AUS5 shane t.png
Shane

(voting against Benji) Benji, you're just too sly, too untrustworthy. I don't want you in the game anymore. Let's hope we have the numbers.

AUS5 monika t.png
Monika

(voting against Benji) Benji, my vote is for you tonight. I wanted to work with you, I wanted to trust you, but you are telling everyone the same thing. So how do I know what game you're really playing? It's safer that I send you home.

AUS5 benji t.png
Benji

(voting against Sharn) You hung onto the sinking ship for too long and you tried to pull me under with you.

AUS5 stevew t.png
Steve W.

(voting against Benji) You're not my favourite person, buddy.

Steve W. didn't give a voting confessional in the revote.

AUS5 fenella t.png
Fenella

(changes vote to Benji) I'm sorry, mate. I really don't want to vote for you, I really dislike Sharn, but this is gonna make the night quicker.

AUS5 brian t.png
Brian

(voting against Benji) All I can say is sorry, mate. You did save me, you just can't be trusted. You promised everyone... um, you have to go.

AUS5 shonee t.png
Shonee

(voting against Sharn) I know Benji's going home, but I like him a lot more than you, so I'll just write your name again.

AUS5 monika t.png
Monika

(voting against Benji) I just don't know how to trust you, so it's safer that you go home now.

AUS5 shane t.png
Shane

(voting against Benji) You're a sly young fox, Benji. Up to no good.

Final Words

Benji

So, the Champions stuck together- y'know, they pulled the wool over my eyes, I didn't see it coming so the idol is still in my bag right now. They knew if I got to the end I would win, so that's why they voted me out. My favourite part of this whole experience was the nachos, the ten minutes of heaven stuffing my face with the nachos and the margaritas and finding the clue- y'know, that's definitely the highlight of my whole trip. (puts on Hidden Immunity Idol around neck) So this is my brand new Survivor souvenir that holds no power, just the sad memory of me not playing it. Here it is! (kisses idol)
