Challenges

Challenge: Slave To The Grind
Both tribes race to station 1, where one tribe member cuts a rope with a sharp stone. Once they cut through the rope, they will release two handles that they will take with them to the second station. At station 2, a different tribe member will chop through a log to a second rope, and once both the log and rope are cut, they will release two more handles. They take the four handles with them, then four different tribe members will race up a platform and put them into a turnstile and begin cranking it, bringing a cart up the hill. The six tribe members that have competed get into the cart, and the final tribe member cuts the final rope, releasing the cart down the hill. The first tribe to the finish wins reward.
Reward: Chips, drinks, and a croc-proof swimming cage
Winner: Yaxhá

Challenge: What's For Launch?
Each tribe divides themselves into two groups of three. Each group spreads out into the field, holding a Mayan catch net. The last member from each tribe will alternate launching balls for the groups in the field to try to catch. The first tribe with five catches wins immunity.
Winner: Nakúm

Voting Confessionals

Blake, this is something I really didn't wanna do, but, even the way the votes are going tonight, you'd be going home anyway, so, therefore, the only thing I can do is stick with an alliance, and that's what you'd want me to do. That's what I want you to do.

Bobby Jon


(voting for Blake) This was a really hard decision for me. You're a great guy, but I think that there's so many things you've experienced in life that others haven't had a chance to yet, and that's why I wanna give them the opportunity to play the game further.

Danni


Blake, one or two many rich kid stories for me. I'm sure you'll turn out to be a great, young man once you get rid of your wild side. I just hope you start treating women as equal, and not as an object.

Gary


(voting for Blake) You may be the Golden Boy, but I'm platinum. I'm just trying to keep my chances in this game alive. I hope it's you.

Brian


Brian, you're an extremely compassionate kid, and, and you've been an amazing part of our team. Um, I did form a lot of bond with my original guys. You know, I think that of the three people on the original Yaxhá team, you're the weakest right now. Um, it's nothing personal. These things happen.

Blake


I'm voting for you, Blake. Um, anything to deflect the heat off of me. I'm really gonna miss your stories, but I think some of your stories, your extravagant stories, made people think that you already have a lot of money. Good luck.

Amy


Brian, don't take offence, man. I just had to keep my word to another person.

Brandon



Final Words

I didn't see it coming. I don't understand the reason for why. That's what I am kinda perplexed right now. And I'm kinda angry. You know, I stepped it up in the few challenges and I think that they realize it's time to get out somebody strong. Why would you do that? That makes no sense but you know, you don't want all the strong players, I guess. Again, playing the odds, I don't understand why it happened.
