You Call, We'll Haul is the eighth episode of Survivor: Cambodia.
Andrew tells Jeremy that it had been a brilliant plan at Tribal Council the previous night to get Kass out. He's trying to keep the alliance strong and focusing on taking out Ciera and Wentworth. Andrew thinks the others are planning a big move so he can try and mess up their plan. Stephen and Ciera talk and she says she expected to get some votes. She hopes Stephen wants to make a big move and wants to convince him to do it now.
Ciera tells her she would make a move against Joe if he lost immunity. Stephen sees the wisdom of this and says they just need six. He is ready to go for someone who is a threat to win the game. The survivors show up for a Reward Challenge. They will play in teams of six, paddle a boat, load a crate into it then stack them according to color. The prize was a trip to the Survivor Café, where the winners get coffee and pastries. Jeff says they did a paddling challenge in Borneo which Wiglesworth had competed in but infamously lost to Gervase Peterson.
They split into teams and the boats are neck and neck. Keith uses his paddle to push the other team back out of the way. Keith loads up the first for his team while Abi-Maria works for the other team. Keith jumps in for the second while Keith loads the second. Spencer replaces Abi-Maria to try for the second. He gets it. Keith goes for the third and Joe helps pull it in. They are in the lead by one crate. Spencer is back in for the other team for the third. Joe hops in for the last crate for the other team.
They load it while Spencer's team drifts away. Joe and the others push their boat to the beach and widen the lead. Ciera, Kimmi, and Wiglesworth with the guys tote crates up there. Purple finally gets their last one. Keith and crew are already stacking while the other crew hits the beach. Jeremy shoulders a crate for the purple team and brings it up while the others share the load. Spencer is working the puzzle smartly and both teams are scrambling.
Stephen is accidentally working the puzzle for the other team. Keith, Kimmi, Ciera, Kelly, Kelley, and Joe win the reward. Wiglesworth is thrilled that she has made up for losing to Gervase Peterson back in the day. They head out to the Survivor Café while the rest of the tribe head back with nothing to show for their efforts. Jeremy, Andrew, Tasha, Stephen, Spencer, and Abi-Maria are leaving empty handed. The others head to the café and dig into the bagels, pastries, cookies and coffee. Kimmi is thrilled to be on a food reward.
Ciera talks about her comments at Tribal and is fishing for alliances. She tells them Jeremy, Tasha, Stephen and Andrew are solid and wants to make a move. Joe says he knows the Bayon tribe will come after him at some point and they talk about how Stephen knows the math. Joe says he has to make a move at the right time with the right people. Keith goes to look at the little Totos motorcycle. He cranks it and zooms off down the beach. They all load up for a ride with Keith driving.
Keith says he ought to get a Cambodian drivers license and says he liked chauffeuring them around. Back at camp, Stephen is very grim. Abi-Maria calls Stephen a "Debbie Downer" when he mopes over this. He says it is a loss of a chance to bond with potential allies and a missed opportunity to regain energy. He talks about losing in his season by not bonding at rewards. Stephen talks to Jeremy and they discuss that Ciera and Abi-Maria are not real threats. He mentions taking out Joe if he does not win immunity. Jeremy thinks Joe is a shield to him but thinks it may be time for him to go.
When Spencer returns, Stephen approaches Spencer and says Joe is a visible threat and they need to blindside him early. Spencer says he is willing to do it. He knows Joe is a good person to win individual immunity. Stephen then goes to Tasha and says he's thinking they go after Joe for a blindside if he loses. Andrew overhears this and says the scheming and deceit is despicable. He wants to protect Joe and shut down Fish. Next day, Joe comes over to Andrew who tells him that Stephen is targeting him.
He says Stephen is making a huge move and thinks he has the numbers. Joe thinks that it is no surprise since he is a challenge threat. He knew it was coming but not so soon. Andrew tells him that he will not write down his name. Joe trusts him but knows that won't matter if Stephen has the numbers and he doesn't win immunity. They head to the Immunity Challenge.
Joe hands back the necklace and then Jeff says to win, they have to balance a ball on a disk attached by a rope and have to move farther down the rope as time passes. It's a lot like last week's challenge with the balance. Keith and Jeremy did this before in their season. Jeremy was first out that time and Keith won it. Jeremy "thanks" Jeff for reminding him. They draw for spots and start it up. Ciera, Kelley, and Kelly are all out rapidly. Jeremy cannot manage it and he drops out as well.
Kimmi holds hers but Abi-Maria loses hers and is out. They are down to seven within minutes then Stephen drops and the field is cut in half. Andrew drops his and Kimmi is struggling. Now it's five. Keith, Joe, Spencer, Tasha, and Kimmi are still in it. They have several minutes left in this round. The round ends and they move to the second position. Now it's harder. They have 10 minutes before it will get worse again. Kimmi is in trouble and finally loses it. Now it's four.
Tasha loses hers. It's Joe, Keith, and Spencer. 10 more minutes elapses and they move into the longest position. The ropes are fully extended. Keith starts to wobble and recovers. Joe's wobbles and he recovers but then Spencer is out. Now it's Keith vs Joe. Jeff says after 10 minutes, they will add a second ball. They hit the mark and now Keith and Joe have two balls and now there is no time limit, it's to the death. This is the stage where Keith won it last time.
Joe's balls are moving and so do Keith's. Then a breeze starts up. There's more wind now. Joe corrects. Keith is solid. Joe's balls move again and he recovers again. Then it starts again and Keith peeks over at him. Now both of Joe's are moving and Keith drops it so Joe wins his second Immunity Challenge which puts Stephen's plan to rest. Joe gets his necklace and the rest are all at risk for being the second jury member. Jeff says he'll see them tonight at Tribal Council. Joe wants to get Stephen out.
Back at camp, the others congratulate Joe and he tells Keith that he did great. Stephen is frustrated that his plans have been thwarted to take Joe out and says Joe is his white whale and he's a rabbit who keeps evading him. Andrew says he thinks Stephen needs to go home and Joe agrees. They start figuring numbers to vote him out. Joe knows he needs to get Stephen out to stop the threats to him. He plans to use the three girls at the bottom to do it. He goes to talk to Kelly and Kelley about voting out Stephen.
Kelly is thrilled since it's not her. Kelly then goes to Ciera and says to blindside Stephen. Ciera says she's okay as long as it's not the two of them. Andrew talks to Tasha and Kelly Wiglesworth then Jeremy comes over. They say they're going for Stephen and says Stephen did it to himself for targeting Joe. Jeremy doesn't like this because he's been building trust with Stephen. Andrew trash talks Stephen about over-strategizing. Jeremy says he doesn't want to let the other girls keep going.
Spencer says they can't take out Stephen if they don't go along with it. Andrew caves and says he'll do what the group wants. He says Jeremy has valid points about the two bottom girls being dangerous. Tasha comes to Joe who says they're not ready to take out Fish right now. Joe says that makes him nervous. Joe says Fish has more connections than he realized. Joe then tells Kelley, Kelly and Ciera that the Stephen blindside is dead. Kelley is upset and the girls all talk about voting for one person just in case.
Ciera is annoyed that none of them are ready to make a move and hopes for a miracle. They head to Tribal Council. The first member of the jury comes in, Kass, who flips off some of the Survivors still in the game. Ciera says there are still people not playing and fighting for their spot in the top. Kelley says four people are running the game. Jeff says why aren't the other eight fighting back and Kelley says the others won't make a move.
Ciera says Jeremy, Andrew, Tasha, and either Stephen or Joe are the four. Kass nods agreement. Jeremy says she came up with five names so they don't even know who's running the show. Jeff says what matters is what people think. Joe says immunity is all you can count on. Andrew says there are several that talk and respect each other. Ciera says in an alliance, people are at the top and the bottom of it. Ciera says everyone is not equal in an alliance.
She says she's frustrated with people at the bottom of the alliance that are happy to be there. Jeff says it may be true and Spencer agrees and says maybe they're waiting people to flip or there's an idol in play. Jeff asks if no one is looking for them. Spencer says he thinks they've been found and waiting to be played. Andrew says Ciera is saying this because she's at the bottom and Abi-Maria and Ciera toll their eyes again. Fish says this season is playing differently than any other season and no one is at the bottom.
Ciera says again that in an alliance, some people are at the bottom. Kelley says she, Ciera and Abi-Maria are at the bottom and they are an easy vote. She says someone came to her suggesting a big move and that's part of the alliance. She says others are trying to make big moves. Jeff asks why not out them and she says she may be there tomorrow and still has to work with them. Joe says it's like playing chess when you don't know which pieces are which. Jeff calls for the vote.
We see none of the votes but hear Spencer's comment that he would have tried what she tried if he had been in Kelley's spot. Jeff goes to tally the votes then comes back and calls for Immunity Idols. Kelley Wentworth pulls hers out and says she's not ready to go home, shocking everyone while Jeremy buries his head in his hands. Everyone is stunned – no one knew. Ciera says this is her favorite moment. Kass smiles. Ciera high fives her and Kass says "yes."
Jeff reads the votes: Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Kelley Wentworth, Andrew. When the next vote is also for Andrew, Kass smiles, and Savage mutters "unbelievable." As Kelley Wentworth's votes are canceled out, Andrew becomes the 7th person voted out of Survivor: Cambodia and the 2nd member of the jury. Kass is thrilled. Jeremy is not. Andrew is stunned. After Jeff extinguishes Andrew's torch, Abi-Maria taunts Andrew further by saying: "you made it to the jury!" and Andrew flips her off. Jeff says they made a big move. Andrew says no one but Wentworth saw it coming and says he proved he can hang around and played the game.
Challenge: Boats, Brains and, Brawn
The teams will paddle out to a series of crates. When they get to a crate, they will jump in the water, untie the crate and get it in their boat. Once they have all their crates, they will stack them, so there are no repeating colors on any side. The first team to finish wins reward.
Reward: A trip to the Survivor café on tuk-tuks, where the winners will be able to enjoy an array of treats such as coffee and bagels.
Winners: Green Team (Ciera Eastin, Joe Anglim, Keith Nale, Kelley Wentworth, Kelly Wiglesworth, and Kimmi Kappenberg)
Challenge: Take the Reins
The castaways are to pull onto two ropes linked to a platform where balls will be placed. The objective is to keep the ball on the platform longer than the other castaways. Every ten minutes, the castaways' hands are to move down to the next notch. Once thirty minutes have elapsed, another ball will be placed, adding to the difficulty. The last person to drop their ball(s) wins.

| VOTED OUT:|
Spencer's vote was not shown during his confessional.
(voting against Kelley) I would've tried the same plea you made if I were in your spot. Luckily, I'm not.
That's… stunning. No one saw that coming. Wentworth did, but, I mean, I'll be darned. I did some things out here that I didn't do twelve years earlier. I proved that, at least in my mind, I can hang with some unbelievable Survivors. I played the game, the strategy game pretty darn well, except for… Ha!, two minutes ago. I'm not going to lie, it-it rips my heart out.
Still in the Running
Life at Ponderosa
Andrew gets his customary post-game weigh-in where he lost 22 lbs. He arrives to Ponderosa, and while Kass warmly welcomes him, Andrew gives her the cold shoulder. Two days later however, they make up and Kass reveals when she was in law school, she had a crush on Andrew watching him in his first season Pearl Islands.
- Kelley's play of the Hidden Immunity Idol negated nine votes against her. This breaks the previous record of seven set in "Tastes Like Chicken", "This Is Where We Build Trust", and "The Line Will Be Drawn Tonight".
- However, the overall percentage of negated votes was higher in "Not Going to Roll Over and Die", with 85.7%.
- After this episode, Kimmi, who placed 12th on her original season, has improved on her previous placement.
