Challenges

Challenge: Sacrificial Lamb
Two players are harnessed to a rope winding through several obstacles. The rest of their tribe helps them move along up and over an A-frame, under a thick log on the sand, around a long hitching post, and around a giant boxlike structure to the end of the rope. Then, one player swims to a buoy and dives down to retrieve a decoder wheel before coming back, where the entire tribe uses it to work out a six-word phrase.
Reward: Three blankets, two pillows, and one hammock.
Winner: Aitutaki (exiled Adam Gentry)

Challenge: Mayday
Four players untie and assemble a wooden puzzle stretcher, lock it in place with metal braces, then run to the beach. One swims out to a mast and climbs a rope ladder to free a hostage, then they both swim back holding a life ring. The victim gets on the stretcher and is carried back. Finally, the three remaining tribe members must make a fire large enough to burn through a rope, lowering the tribe flag. The first tribe to do so wins immunity.
Winner: Aitutaki

Voting Confessionals

S13 stephannie t.png
Stephannie
(voting against J.P.) Sorry, J.P., it was either going to be you or me.


S13 adam t.png
Adam
(voting against J.P.) I hate to do this to you, buddy, but no one else in this tribe trusts you, including your best friend, your good buddy, Cristina. So, I gotta go with the tribe on this one.


S13 jenny t.png
Jenny
(voting against J.P.) I thought I could trust you until I found out that you were one of the first people who wanted to vote me off today.


S13 jp t.png
J.P.
(voting against Stephannie) This really breaks my heart to have to do this. I wish you to voice that weakness, but you're a wonderful and beautiful person, and you´ll be with me for the rest of this game.


S13 brad t.png
Brad
(voting against J.P.) You cannot come into a game, guns blazing, because at the end of the day, it's going to rub a lot of people the wrong way. And, in the words of Heidi Klum, "Auf wiedersehen".


S13 cristina t.png
Cristina
(voting against J.P.) J.P., I think you're a great guy. I just think you had your gameface on, and none of us wanted to be played. I think you're a really good guy though, so hopefully we can still meet and do those projects we talked about. Good luck.


S13 rebecca t.png
Rebecca
(voting against J.P.) I choose you, J.P., because when you spoke this morning, you forgot about the alliance you made and you gave a speech about something totally different.


S13 nate t.png
Nate
(voting against Stephannie) Your wish is my command.


S13 parvati t.png
Parvati
(voting against J.P.) There are just one too many cooks in the kitchen. We've gotta let one go. Sorry.



Final Words

J.P.
Wow. This is something I never, ever saw coming. Takes more than just being strong and big and physical and thinking you're mentally tough. You gotta really watch your back. There's no hard feelings that's the way the game is played, and man, they really pulled one over on me. You definitely can't trust anybody in this game. There's no way.
