Two for the Price of One is the ninth episode of Survivor: Island of the Idols.

Story

Night 24

S39 janet t
Janet

Tribal Council was really hard, and I felt very alone. There was a moment there where I didn't know if I wanted to stay in the game, but for me, quitting's not an option because I don't want my daughters and granddaughter to see that, and my husband and my beach family. I don't quit. I don't quit anything.

S39 janet t
Janet

I played my idol because it was a crazy tribal directed at me. I wish I still had it because I'm on the choppin' block. They want me gone.


Day 25

S39 elizabeth t
Elizabeth

Last night was probably the worst night of my life. I was poured on, freezing with no one to keep me warm except for Missy, and I'm like, "I'm over this. This sucks."-- but that's the game. That's, that's literally what I signed up for. I haven't come this far to only come this far and let a rainy night completely break me.

S39 noura t
Noura

Karishma's lucky to be here! She doesn't do anything around camp. She lays in the hammock, she's always, like, the first to go to bed and the last to wake up! [...] She does not open a coconut; she does not go get water. You'd think she's an 85 year old woman that has this sense of entitlement! "I don't need to kill myself. I'm part of the elderly group. Like, you guys should just take care of me." She's crazy! This is Survivor! We're still here! Do you want to be here? Show us! You know, maybe you should like help out...? [...] Karishma obviously has more resilience than we think because she's still here, but she's shown me that she's inconsistent, unworkable, ungrateful, and I have no interest in working with someone like that!

S39 karishma t
Karishma

I think it's incredibly obvious that I'm in trouble, and I, I can only blame myself. You know, when I first got out here, when I first came here, I thought I was going to be like jungle queen. I thought I was going to be able to make friends so easily, get along with everybody, but when I'm struggling, like I am right now, I think of my family, and so someone like my husband who chooses to be with me and love me and me only for the rest of his life, I mean, how can I not see clearer than ever how wonderful that kind of a relationship is when I can't even get somebody to trust me and care for me for even one vote out here? I'm being viewed as a goat. One of the qualities of a goat is predictability, but I'm not a very good one because I'm not very predictable.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

Look what I did! I found an idol! I found my lifeline in this game! I was barely hanging on by a thread and then to find this! It gives me something to lean on, to finally get off the ground where I've been laying this whole time and finally do something with it! This gives me a chance to make a name for myself in this game.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

I'm walking back to camp, and suddenly I realize, "Oh crap! I've been gone for a really long time!" [...] so I kind of play up the feeling-sick thing because that's just my first instinct. I don't know what else to do.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

I don't need this whole detour of the doctor being called on me, and I'm just thinking in my head, "Oh my god! I don't need this drama!" I need to get back, sit down, and think about how I'm going to play my idol.


Day 26

No footage from Day 26 was aired.

Day 27

S39 janet t
Janet

When I heard there were going to be two groups going to Tribal Council, I got a little scared because before this split, Karishma was probably going to be the vote tonight, and all the sudden I absolutely could be going home! It's nerve-wracking, but I will keep fighting.

S39 aaron t
Aaron

So we've come back to old Lairo camp. I don't want to be here right now! It just brings back bad memories! This was the lowest of the low in my time in this game! I just want to get out of her, go to Tribal Council, and be back at the Vokai beach. [...] The last two Tribal Councils, I've had the necklace, and I haven't had to worry about going home. This tribe switch for me is a little unsettling, but the fact that Karishma is on one tribe and Janet is on this tribe, this could be a perfect storm happening for us, and guess what? We get two for the price of one!

S39 noura t
Noura

Janet has been on the chopping block for a while, but Aaron is such a physical and social threat, and he didn't win the necklace today, so he's like a dear in the woods that's just unattended, alone, no people by his side. We have a clear shot. Like, why would we not take it?

S39 janet t
Janet

All of the sudden, everybody wants to get rid of Aaron. I was like, "Woohoo!" [...] It would be unbelievable that I could still be here after what I've gone through.

S39 dean t
Dean

Two days ago, everyone across the board wanted Janet gone. Now we come here. Janet's safe, but if Aaron heads home, then who else do people see? So at least for me in the short-term, Aaron is way better for me in this game than Janet.

S39 dan t
Dan

Dean comes to me, and he feels that we should vote out Janet because Janet is one of the biggest threats in this game. She made fire; she's everybody's mama, has a great story, but Janet has come back to me, and we can legitimately work together in the future and be friends. [...] We could easily flip the vote back to Janet, but for my game, I'm fifty-fifty on whether Aaron or Janet is better. It's incredibly complicated because before these two tribes split up, it was supposed to be Karishma or Janet, but now who knows, right? I wish I could see what's happening on the other tribe. I'm assuming Karishma continues to remain the easy, easy vote when they go to their Tribal Council, but like, can it be this easy?

S39 missy t
Missy

Our tribal tonight is going to be super simple; Karishma goes. That was the overall plan anyway, right? Wrong, completely wrong. I was super happy that the other group was not back at the tribe with us. I need freedom of the camp. I need time with my girls, so I can dictate the vote because what's best for our game is best for Missy's game, and Missy wants to win the game.

S39 missy t
Missy

I have been wanting to use Karishma in a way to elevate my game, and having Tommy gone opens up Lauren. It also means that we've gotten rid of a guy who can win the game. He's a teacher; he's personable; everybody loves Tommy. Nobody's going to award Karishma a million dollars.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

Missy was talking at me, not talking with me! She's a bully to me! I'm not taking that anymore, not from a 24 year old girl who thinks she's on top of the world!

S39 karishma t
Karishma

I'm sorry, little girl! I'm going to need you to calm down! I'm too old for that! You know what? I'm glad to hear that Tommy's name is coming up and not mine of course, but I'll talk to you when I want to talk to you!

S39 elaine t
Elaine

Holy cow! Missy wants Tommy out! That doesn't work for me, and at the same time, I don't like how people talk to Karishma. She just needs words of encouragement and positive reinforcement, and Karishma has power tonight, more power than she may realize.

S39 elaine t
Elaine

Missy's going way too hard. They came at Karishma hot. I'm coming with compassion and understanding, so I need to strike while the iron is hot. You can't hesitate in this game. You have to seize every moment, and that's what I'm trying to do, and with this baby around my neck, this helps a little bit more.

S39 tommy t
Tommy

Missy has brought up my name to knock me out tonight; so of course when you bring up my name, I'm coming after you, so Karishma went from the most unpopular kid in class to now the most popular kid in class where everyone wants her vote. [...] Missy hasn't been really nice to Karishma. I view her as a person and not as a goat. She does get bullied on this island, and I didn't have the easiest childhood with that; so Karishma, I hope she realizes that I actually care about her and want to work with her, and besides, Missy, never wanted to play with you before this vote!

S39 missy t
Missy

Karishma, listen, I am so sorry. I will hug you; let's cry together, blah, blah, blah.

S39 karishma t
Karishma

I went from being down in the dump to now I'm the one who is going to be making the decision tonight who goes home. Missy was at the top of my kill list because we're constantly fighting with each other, but tonight's decision has to be entirely logical. It cannot be emotional. As a trial lawyer, you have to be careful with your emotions and weigh the risk, so I will work with Missy if it is the best thing for my game. [...] For the first time, I have a shot at Tommy because of the twist. His closest allies are over at the other tribe. He is a sitting duck. It's perfect, but with Missy it sounds a little too good to be true. For all I know, she's playing me. I don't, I don't trust anybody. It's a little fishy. In the back of my head, there's still a chance it could be me. Thankfully, I have an Immunity Idol in my trusty bra over here, and if my gut says to play it, I'm going to make sure I'm here to live another day.

S39 aaron t
Aaron

Janet's going home, and I'm all but certain that Janet knows that her time in this game is up. I don't have an Immunity Necklace today, and this is my very first time that I'm going to truly find out if the alliance is working with me.

S39 lauren t
Lauren

Janet is a boss. Like, Janet is a very strong woman, and she is a big threat, but a lot of people feel threatened by Aaron. He is a beast. I cannot beat Aaron in challenges, so tonight is going to be a really tough vote.

S39 janet t
Janet

I was in trouble; I was on thin ice, but it's not rocket science. This group is done with the meat shields like Aaron. [...] Right now, I'm feeling safe, which is a scary place to be because there have been so many blindsides at tribals. [...] I'm just hoping I'm not fooling myself that it's going to be okay.


Challenges

The last castaway from each team with a spinning ball wins, and the last person standing overall wins reward for their team.
Reward: Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and the right for their team to vote second
Winner: Noura Salman(Purple Team) and Elaine Stott​ ​(Orange Team) (As the last person standing, Elaine won reward for the Orange Team.)

You know, I kind of anticipated this, at some point in time this was gonna happen. I tried to delay it as much as I could by winning the individual Immunity Challenges. So they had to get rid of me and, you know, now is the right time. Kudos to them and hats off. Great move. Put my butt right on the jury.

Final Words

Missy

On a scale of dopeness, getting blindsided, that's negatively dope, and I didn't even know this. So I mean, that's a big enough fault in my game where I deserve to be here. But it's fine. Life goes on. It's not a brain tumor. That was one of wildest, craziest, what is that...twenty-seven days? I-I'd go sixty more.
