I've Got Strength Now to Carry the Flag is the sixth episode of Survivor: Fiji.

Story

Day 15

On the morning of Day 15, Yau-Man counts his lucky stars that he wasn't voted out, given what he can offer to the tribe physically. Tree Mail arrives and Ravu is excited about the prospect of winning a feast.

At the Reward Challenge, Jeff asks one member from each tribe to step forward, with Earl and Edgardo doing the honors. Jeff then says the words that always throws everyone for a loop: "drop your buffs we are picking new tribes". Lisi is not chosen and is sent to Exile Island until after the next Tribal Council. Additionally, Edgardo randomly draws the Ravu buffs, sending his all male crew to the less desirable Ravu camp while Earl's team moves back to the lap of luxury at Moto. The results of the switch are as follows:

Lisi arrives at Exile Island feeling like elimination would have been a better option but decides to go through the motions and see where she ends up.

The new Moto gets back to camp and it's three new members are quick to enjoy the comforts that come with the camp. The new Ravu is happy to be all male but as the last man picked, Anthony isn't as comfortable as the rest of the guys, however...

At Moto, Earl feels confident moving forward in the game and identifies Boo as an early target. Cassandra, who had been planning on flipping alliances anyways, is delighted to have three old Ravu's in her camp, and begins chatting up Earl and Yau-Man to see what her options are.

Day 16

Anthony is still put off by the tribe swap and is frustrated that he has to stay back and tend the fire while the other five guys go off and bond. The five other Ravu's are catching food and Alex identifies Mookie as the old Ravu member that he wants to flip into his alliance with Edgardo and Dreamz.

Moto picks up another win at the Immunity Challenge and Anthony starts to panic about getting voted out of the game. His fears are realized when he overhears Rocky telling Edgardo that he is weak. Anthony appeals to Dreamz and Alex but neither commit to voting for Rocky.

At Tribal Council, Rocky continues to bury Anthony and the former Moto members vote with Rocky to send Anthony home.

Voting Confessionals

Mookie

(voting against Anthony) It's been long overdue. You said a little too late.

Anthony

(voting against Rocky) I was getting respect back for you, but you lost it, man. So good luck, good health, and, uh, watch your mouth.

S14 edgardo t.png
Edgardo

(voting against Anthony) It's only a game you can beat yourself at it. I'm sorry.

S14 dreamz t.png
Dreamz

(voting against Anthony) Sorry I couldn't save you this time.

S14 rocky t.png
Rocky

(voting against Anthony) It's time to go, brother. I don't know. I hope you can take this experience and learn from it. I think you'll be alright if you can do that. Have a good one, buddy.

S14 alex t.png
Alex

(voting against Anthony) Proud of you for what you did tonight, Anthony. It's nothing personal. It just comes down to we want to win these challenges. Good for you though.


Final Words

Anthony

I'm a little pissed off. I'm a lot pissed off. I'm mad at myself for apparently not screaming to the world being a jerk. Apparently that's what you need to prove that you're out for a million dollars. Regardless of what Rocky says I have great social skills. I'm not what was wrong with that tribe. It was Mookie and James; those are the problems with Ravu and that's why they're losing and they're going to continue to lose until both those guys are gone.
