Challenges

Challenge: Maya Maze
The Final Four castaways must move through a giant macaw-shaped maze to find one of six stations, grab a three-sided color-coded puzzle piece (or pieces), then get to the end of the pool, cross pontoons to the other side, climb a ladder to the solving stations, cross a bridge, and climb down a ladder to re-enter the maze. First to get all eight of their pieces to their solving station and form one of three possible images (jaguar, crocodile, or monkey) wins.
Winner: Rafe Judkins

Challenge: Wobbly Boots
The castaways must use two thin ropes to help them get onto a board sitting on a very tiny fulcrum joint, making it hard to balance, then last as long as they can without touching the platform beneath the board. After one hour, they must let go of one of the ropes, then let go of the second 30 minutes later, at which point neither hand can touch any part of the challenge setup. The last person left wins.
Winner: Danni Boatwright

Voting Confessionals

Lydia, you've been a mother to everyone out here, especially me. I know how much I care about you, but, tonight, I have to go with the vote that's gonna put me in a really good position to get to the Final Two. I love you.

Rafe


(voting for Danni) We became good friends, but it's between you and me, and somebody has to go. So, I wanna stay, so, um, I'm sorry, but, uh, I'd rather stay than go, so... you're on the chopping block.

Lydia


Lydia, you're one of the most wonderful people that I've ever met. I hate writing your name down, but I have to stick with my alliance with Rafe and Stephenie. So, sorry. I hope you'll forgive me.

Danni


Lydia, you are awesome. I love you. You've made my days out here so bright and cheery. Thank you. Sorry about this, but, um, I gave my word to Danni and Rafe, and I can't turn on it now if I wanna try to get to the two. See you later.

Stephenie



Final Words

This was by far the hardest experience I've ever had in my life. The heat and the mosquitoes, and hardly any food. So I'm very proud of myself. You know, just the history alone and be on the ruins on a daily basis for 37 days was a very, very incredible experience. And I would not trade it for the world.

Voting Confessionals

Sorry Rafe, but I know if the tables were turned, you'd be voting me out right now. So I have to vote you out, I think Stephenie might be the easier one to go up against. I have to think about my family, cause they could sure use that money.

Danni



Final Words

Wow, I feel I think I played a smart game and as honest a game as I could. So I'm really proud of myself. I'm proud of what I did. You know, I stayed true to my moral compass and I betrayed people when I thought I should and I stuck with people when I thought I should. Danni, I understand the decision you made but I thought you were the one person who would take me to the Final Two and you didn't, so, Stephenie, I'm absolutely rooting for you. I think you played a great game. And I'll be voting for you tomorrow night.

Judd


This game is about who you are. Your character is your strategy. Stephenie, you made the most of your strengths and you turned your weaknesses into strengths out here. You are the ultimate Survivor.
