Challenges

Challenge: Chimney Sweep
The two castaways would brace themselves with their arms between two walls while standing barefoot on two foot pegs. Every 15 minutes, the castaways would move down to smaller foot pegs. When the castaways reached the third set of foot pegs, they would try to remain on them as long as they could. The last castaway to remain on their pegs would win.
Winner: Matt Elrod

Challenge: Roller Ball
Each castaway would have to stand on a small wooden log while balancing a ball on a wooden disk. At regular intervals, a ball would be added until the castaway would be balancing three balls. Should any of the balls fall off the disk or if they step off the log, the castaway would be out of the challenge. The last castaway to not drop a ball or step off the log would win.
Winner: Natalie Tenerelli

Trivia

  • This episode marks the first time Phillip attends Tribal Council and does not receive any votes against him.
  • Despite being Andrea's fourth Tribal Council, this is the first in which she doesn't vote for Kristina Kell.
    • It would be impossible to do so, however, since Kristina had been eliminated from the game at that point.
  • This marks the first time there was a merge at Redemption Island.
  • Matt becomes the first person to be voted out twice in a single season since Burton Roberts in Survivor: Pearl Islands.
  • After Sarita's loss in the duel, Julie Wolfe is now the highest-placing female of Zapatera.
  • The episode title is said by Matt when speaking to Andrea about blindsiding Rob Mariano and taking control of the game.
