Story

Day 22

After the Reward Challenge, it is revealed that the mystery reward is a basket of purple merge buffs. It's announced that the tribes have merged into Phsan ("to merge" in Thai) and they will live in the old Khangkhaw camp. An additional reward of comfort items will also be waiting for them at Tree Mail.

Day 23

Day 24

After the Immunity Challenge, the former Chani members try to get Adam and Matt on their side and plan to vote for Lisa. Lisa herself approaches the two and puts forward her idea. Matt promises Dave that he's safe but Dave isn't convinced and confesses that he may have to play his Hidden Immunity Idol tonight.

At Tribal Council, Lisa decides to use her advantage to steal Arun's vote. Dave doesn't play his Idol in the end, and Arun becomes the first member of the jury in a 5-3-2 vote.

NZ2 brad t
Brad

(voting against Dave) Awesome dude, thought we might have been able to work together at some stage, but I've heard too many things bro.

NZ2 renee t
Renee

(voting against Arun) Instead of trying to control people, should've listened. Your luck's run out.

NZ2 tess t
Tess

(voting against Dave) Dave, it's a bigger plan to get Arun out, but also for what you did to Josh.

NZ2 lisa t
Lisa

(voting against Arun twice) Both my votes are for Arun. I don't really know you, but a lot of people I know really well and trust tell me you're not a good guy to have around, and I'm really putting my faith in them tonight and I hope it doesn't screw me.


Final Words

NZ2 arun bw
Arun

Pretty shocked at, um, the result. I thought I had a few more allies. We thought bringing Matt through was a lifeline, gave him enough to jump ship and jump with us, but you can't just rely on people's words. I've got a beautiful family at home, having this a part of my journey in life, I won't regret anything about it.
