Eating and Sleeping with the Enemy is the tenth episode of Survivor: Guatemala.
Night 24 & Day 25
Xhakúm return from Tribal Council. Gary Hogeboom is asked about where he found the Hidden Immunity Idol, to which he answered that it was in the Mayan worship tree. Jamie Newton talks in confessional about how he feels about Gary, and that he's acting shady. Cindy Hall talks in confessional about how Jamie is constantly picking arguments. She already knew that Gary had voted for her, but she wasn't upset about one vote. Jamie and Gary then get into an argument. Judd Sergeant talks in confessional, talking about that argument, saying that Gary wasn't lying, and that Jamie will say things just to say them.
The sun rises over the upcoming Reward Challenge, and Jeff Probst calls everyone in. Jeff explains that the eight players will split into two teams for this challenge, with the winners being given an overnight trip to a private home. Gary and Judd start to fall behind early in the challenge, but Stephenie LaGrossa and Danni Boatwright help bring their team back to even , and then pull ahead after Lydia Morales gets stuck in the mud. Lydia continues to struggle through the challenge, and it helps Gary, Stephenie, Judd, and Danni win the reward. Jamie calls on Cindy and Lydia to finish the challenge, but Cindy isn't having any of it. The four winners are immediately whisked away to a nearby helicopter, as the other four return to camp.
Danni is more than happy to be away from the game and the struggles of the past 25 days in the Guatemalan jungles and looks forward to relaxing. They touch down at a luxurious hut and greeted by the staff. Judd talks about how they were escorted to a table already prepared with a large banquet of food, including lobsters, and a large pool complete with a shower area just outside to wash off the mud from the Reward Challenge. Steph, in her confessional, is very happy to be on this reward with three people she considers to be her friends, complimenting Danni about how cool she is, as well as how Gary is a genuine, honest gentleman, and Judd, who she's seen as a brother figure since Day 1. Judd then strips down in front of everyone to shower, and he doesn't seem to mind being naked in front of everyone, and Danni and Stephenie laugh about it. They all then go to the table and eat away. Danni talks in confessional about how Stephenie can eat so much more than she can, but also says that it's a great opportunity to get to know Stephenie and Judd more.
Back at camp, Lydia talks with Rafe Judkins about the challenge and how badly she wanted it, joking around with both him and Jamie. Rafe feels very bad for Jamie, stating that Jamie might be losing it and feeling paranoid out here.
That night, the reward winners munch on chips and salsa, and Gary talks in confessional about this being a good chance to make some alliance deals, and that even if he fails to make it work out, then at least he tried his hardest to make it happen, thinking that he will be the next to go if he does nothing strategy-wise. He talks to Stephenie and Judd about wanting to be in the Final 4 with the best players left in the game right now, and wants it to be him, Danni, Judd and Stephenie going to the Final 4. Stephenie talks in confessional about how solid she is in the game right now, that she isn't sure about moving over to align with Gary and Danni, but does say it's a good idea. Gary and Danni both want to see Jamie gone, and Judd sheepishly agrees with it as Stephenie asked who they would want to vote out if there were no alliances. They each tuck into bed and fall asleep.
Bonding with Gary and Danni is not gonna affect my game because I know what my gameplan is, but, nice to get to know somebody different who you never met before...Sometimes this game affects your heart a little bit, sometimes it kinda wrenches it a bit, and gettin' rid of those two is, you know, it's gonna be real hard, but that's just the way the game is, man. If I wanna go further in this game, then the threats gotta go.
The reward winners wake up to the fresh scent of coffee, which perks them up. Danni was absolutely floored after trying all the different flavors of Folgers coffee. The homeowner comes in with a surprise gift for the four of them, and then leaves after saying goodbye. Judd comments that they look like videotapes wrapped up, and when Gary opens the gift, Judd was right. Steph immediately exclaims, as does Danni. They were videotapes from home. Judd gets to watch his first, and his daughter is the first to tell him she loves him. The four laugh as they watch Judd's daughter cooking tacos. Judd watches his entire family and relatives send messages of love and support. Danni's videotape is next, and the first to greet her is her dog, and then her mom tells her how much she misses Danni. Danni really wanted to see how her dogs were doing, and was happy to see that they looked well-fed. Stephenie's videotape is next. "Hi, Aunt Stephenie!" is said by the youngest in the group all huddled close to the camera. Her family, parents, and relatives each share their love and good luck to Steph. Finally, Gary's video, and his wife is there asking if he's ready for California. Gary states in confessional that he can be an emotional wreck when it comes to family videotapes like this, but seeing his wife and kids after 25 days in the Guatemalan jungles was something he really needed.
Coming back to camp, Gary, Danni, Stephenie and Judd come back with a basket of goodies for the other four castaways. When Cindy saw what it was, she was ecstatic over the coffee. Judd and Jamie get back together, and when Jamie asked about strategy talk, Judd said there wasn't any game talk going on the day before. Gary talks about the pitch he offered to Judd and Stephenie, hoping that they consider it a little more, fearing he will be on the jury next. Jeff Probst then calls everyone in for the Immunity Challenge, and explains the rules. In the first round, the players navigate a rope maze, and advancing to the next round was Jamie, Rafe, Steph, and finally Cindy, who makes it to the finish line over Gary in a photo finish. The second round showcases a more difficult three-tiered rope maze. Cindy and Rafe are neck and neck throughout, but Rafe finished first and wins the Immunity Necklace.
The sun rises on the Guatemalan jungle and the camp, and the tribe all congratulate Rafe on his win. Rafe, however, is a bit worried that, after two Immunity wins and a 2nd place finish in another, he could be seen as a physical threat down the line, stating that he's going to have to change up his strategy. Judd and Jamie talk about voting Gary out, and Judd is confident that Jamie won't be the one going to the jury. Jamie talks in confessional that Rafe isn't seen as a threat in his eyes, but Gary is. but eventually he will be seen as one. He goes to Cindy to ask about the plan. Cindy, however, is concerned about Jamie's paranoia. Rafe also talks about Jamie's paranoia getting to him in confessional, and is getting sick of it. Rafe and Lydia talk about how Jamie is driving him nuts. When filling in Stephenie about his plan, she is unsure if it's the right idea, telling Rafe and Lydia about how good Gary is socially.
At Tribal Council, Probst introduces the first member of the jury, Bobby Jon Drinkard (who was voted out at the last Tribal Council). Probst states that jury members will not talk, and the players cannot communicate with the jury. The jury is only here to collect further information in order to make a decision on who to vote as the Sole Survivor. Probst asked Steph about spending time with Danni and Gary, saying that she enjoyed it very much to simply get away from the challenges and camp life and strategy for a night. Danni agrees with Stephenie's comments, as did Judd. Judd does say however, that even though he really likes Gary, voting for him has to be done. Jamie is asked about anyone who he feels he won't miss when they are voted out, and he says there isn't any. He adds that living out in the jungle for 25 days can get to you mentally. Gary talks about having a constant positive attitude day by day. Probst asks Rafe about his Necklace, and Rafe politely says that he will keep it, and the tribe begins to vote. Despite Judd and Jamie's confidence that Gary would go home, Rafe's eleventh hour choice to blindside Jamie worked. Jamie is voted out, 6-2, and becomes the second member of the jury.
Challenge: Mud Slide
The castaways would be divided into two groups with one pair or men and women on each team. Each pair will be attached by rope and race through a series of obstacles and through a deep mud pit to get a pot of corn which they will make their way back with to empty into their finish pot. The first team to fill their pot would win reward.
Reward: A helicopter ride to a private home where they can take showers, eat plenty of food, spend the night, and watch videos from home.
Winners: White Team (Danni Boatwright, Gary Hogeboom, Judd Sergeant, and Stephenie LaGrossa)
Challenge: Around The Bend
The castaways will be attached to a rope that is tangled around three obstacles that they will have to jump and climb through in order to untangle it and make their way to the finish. The first four to finish move on to the final round, where the rope is attached to a three-level high obstacle that they will have to make their way through. The first person to finish wins immunity.
Winner: Rafe Judkins

|“||(voting for Gary) It's easier to judge somebody than to understand them. I hate when you judged me with Brandon thinking he was a better person than me. I want you to know I forgive you, and I hope we can be friends one day, but it's either you or me tonight, buddy. Take care.||”|
|“||(voting for Jamie) Just like to say you're mom's a lucky lady; she's got a son like you, and with your twin brother, if he's anything like ya, she's double lucky. Hope you get to see her soon, and see her more often.||”|
|“||Hey, Gary, thanks for sharing this experience with me, buddy. I mean, I gotta let you go. I don't want to, but I have to save my own ass, buddy. Thanks for everything. God bless you.||”|
|“||(voting for Jamie) Wow, what an awesome young man you are. You've been a loyal friend, companion and protector since Day One in this game for me. Tonight's a difficult night for me to do this. Um, I just hope that you, uh, realize that I cherish every moment that we spent together, and, um, in my, in my eyes, in my heart, you're a champion. I'll see you on the outside.||”|
|“||Jamie, you helped me out with your quick tongue, but I still think you got a big heart, and I'd want you on my team any day of the year.||”|
|“||Jamie, sorry once again, you old pecker head, but, since you didn't get immunity, it makes you an easy target.||”|
|“||Jamie, you asked me, when I voted you out, to blindside you and to say a mean comment. Well, I guess you're being blindsided, but I'm not gonna take you up on the mean comment. I think you're a great guy, and I think you let this game kind of take you away from who you really are. Through it all, we'll be friends when this is all over. I love you.||”|
|“||(voting for Jamie) This is a really difficult vote for me. Um, I'm sorry I have to vote for you, but you kind of dug your own grave. You've been talking way too much. You've probably told way too many lies, and I just can't an alliance with you. So, I'm sorry, but it's time for you to go.||”|
|“||It really hurts that Lydia voted against me because I took her so far. As much as I warned Lydia about the times she was in trouble, she couldn't tell me I was in trouble so that's going to be hard for me to forgive her for that. It hurts when you see good people go bad but that's how the game plays. You know honestly it's a huge thing. I don't think I ever want to lie no matter what it comes down to.||”|
