Story

Day 37

Day 38

Day 39

Challenges

Challenge: Compass Ropes
One at a time, the final five must collect eight bags from eight obstacles (mesh tunnel, mesh bridge, disc walk, V tunnel, swing steps, knotted rope bridge, rope swing, and an overhead cargo net), then use the puzzle pieces inside them to build a three-dimensional compass rose puzzle.
Winner: Ozzy Lusth

Challenge: Self-Destruction
The final four will have to stand barefoot on a small, individually-proportioned perch above the water for as long as possible. Every 15 minutes for the first hour, they will pull a rope and release a section of the perch, making it fall. After one hour, a section 'less than half the size of a postcard' will remain.
Winner: Ozzy Lusth

Good luck to you in the future.


S13 adam t.png
Adam
(voting for Yul) I think Ozzy pleaded his case the best tonight at Tribal Council, but I made a promise with Yul that I would vote for him in this situation if it arose for voting Jonathan ahead of me, so I haven't broken any promises yet and I'm not going to start now.


S13 parvati t.png
Parvati
(voting for Ozzy) The ultimate competitor. Um, the intensity and the passion, and the fire that you've brought to this game completely captivated me, and I feel so lucky and so blessed to play side by side with you for as long as I did. I really appreciate getting to know you and everything you did out here. I think you played your heart out, and you totally deserve to win this game.

Trivia

  • Host Jeff Probst said that the puzzle used in the Day 37 Immunity Challenge was the hardest puzzle that they had used in Survivor history up to that point.
  • Even though the original Rarotonga came into the merge with the most members, Adam Gentry's elimination caused Rarotonga to be the first original tribe to go extinct in Cook Islands.
  • This marks the first time that nobody in the final four was Caucasian.
  • This is the only episode in the four seasons Parvati Shallow has played in that she is not competing in.
  • This is the first time a Final Three competed instead of a Final Two at the Final Tribal Council.
    • This is the first time where a finalist received no votes to win.
  • Yul Kwon became the first Asian-American to make it to Final Tribal Council, and Becky Lee immediately followed as the second.
  • This episode holds the record for the longest time taken to complete a fire-making tiebreaker challenge. Becky went almost two hours before defeating Sundra Oakley.
