This is the seventh episode of Survivor New Zealand: Thailand.

Story

Day 19

The two tribes arrive to compete in the Reward Challenge. In Round 1: Adam and Eve are on the posts; while Brad, Tara; Dave, and Arun are in charge of removing them. Dave and Arun win a point for Chani, but Arun calls out the unfairness of two big guys dragging a small woman half their size through the mud, and Chani decide to concede the challenge rather than keep going.

Day 20

The two tribes have to select one person each to The Outpost, Lisa and Dave are chosen. The challenge is revealed to be a word scramble spelling out a phrase revealing the mystery reward. While the challenge is underway, Dave finds a scroll. Lisa wins the challenge by spelling out the phrase 'YOU CAN STEAL A VOTE'. Matt Chisholm explains that the advantage can only be used at the next Tribal Council she attends. Lisa confesses that she's nervous about using it as two of her all-time favourite players Cirie Fields and Stephen Fishbach saw themselves lose the game partly because of the Vote Steal advantage.

Upon returning to camp after the Outpost challenge, Dave reads the scroll and it's revealed to be a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol. He finds the Idol hidden underneath the water well. He also tells the tribe about Lisa's advantage.

Day 21

With the Immunity Challenge looming, the original Khangkhaw members (Brad, Lisa, Tara and Tess) conspire to throw the challenge knowing Adam and Matt are outnumbered 4-2 in Chani after Dylan's flip. On the Chani side, they also conspire to throw the challenge in an attempt to flush out Lisa's Vote Steal before the merge.

The Immunity Challenge goes down to the wire, and despite attempting to throw the challenge, an unwell Lisa inadvertently aids Khangkhaw into completing the puzzle and winning the challenge. She confesses that it's harder to throw a challenge and be sick at the same time.

Arun, Dylan and Renee plan on taking out Matt next, but Dave (his secret real-life friend) persuades them to keep him due to his closeness with Lisa and they could use him as a double agent to get information on how she'll use the Vote Steal.

Matt Chisholm arrives at the Khangkhaw camp by boat, much to the surprise of the tribe. It's revealed that JT is considering pulling out of the game due to an ongoing health issue. Matt asks if he really wants to go through with it, and JT insists. After saying his final goodbyes to the rest of the tribe, JT steps onto the boat and leaves the game.

Tribal Council goes ahead, and Dylan is blindsided 5-1.

Final Words

JT

This is a horrible decision to have to make. Winning Survivor has been a twenty-year dream of mine, but it's not my only dream in life. 32-year-old me has a lot different priorities than 13-year-old JT and health is one of them.

(voting against Dylan) I just don't trust you in the long game mate.

NZ2 renee t
Renee

(voting against Dylan) I have to stick with my alliance on this one.

NZ2 dave t
Dave

(voting against Dylan) I've really enjoyed playing with you bro, but there's just no way I'm voting out Matt instead of you. At least it's a blindside, like you always wanted.

NZ2 matt t
Matt

(voting against Dylan) Man, I hope I'm not going home.

NZ2 dylan t
Dylan

(voting against Matt) Two down, five to go.

NZ2 adam t
Adam

(voting against Dylan) I'm literally going to write your name every single Tribal Council until one of us goes. Like, literally. Literally.


Final Words

NZ2 dylan bw
Dylan

I think I've got mixed emotions. I think a blindside's almost a way of someone saying to you, like, you're a threat, and so I think I kinda take comfort in that, but, you know, I'm still really gutted I'm out of this game. Trust was formed last Tribal Council and so I thought there was trust there with the group of four. They got rid of someone who I think was maybe a bigger threat than Matt at this stage.
