Challenges

Challenge: Get Crackin'
The challenge consisted of two parts. First, the castaways attempted to land a coconut in a round trough. The first four to accomplish this would advance to the second stage where they would break open a coconut with a rock, collect the coconut water in their mouth, traverse a vertical obstacle course, and deposit the water into a tube. The first contestant to fill their tube would win immunity.
Winner: Jim Rice

Challenge: Bow Diddley
Contestants balanced on a narrow beam with one foot in front of the other, while balancing a ball on a rounded bow. Dropping the ball or falling off the beam eliminated the contestant from the challenge. The last person standing wins.
Additional Stipulation: The castaways were given the option to sit out of the challenge and eat if they felt they were comfortable enough in the game. The former Upolu members plus John Cochran sat out of the challenge, leaving only Dawn Meehan, Jim Rice, and Whitney Duncan to compete for immunity.
Winner: Whitney Duncan

Redemption Island

Because Keith was the only inhabitant of Redemption Island, there was no duel.

(voting against Ozzy) You have been trying to get me out since week one, so I don't think it's that inappropriate for me to be voting for you.

Trivia

  • In this episode, Jim Rice becomes the third contestant in Survivor history to win an individual Immunity Challenge in a non-finale episode and be voted out in the same episode. The first two castaways were Jolanda Jones and Erik Reichenbach. They were later followed by Brandon Hantz.
  • The episode's title is said by Ozzy, referring to Cochran's betrayal and the nature of the game.
