Previously on Survivor, the laziest player this season was sandbagged by her best friend, which we think speaks aptly about her character. Baylor has been one of the most entitled players we’ve ever seen. She’s done virtually nothing around camp, and on top of that, she’s let her mother boss her and everyone else around. We won’t miss her.

Also, Jim vented incessantly about what has proven to be one of the most interesting seasons in recent memory. It’s not about the destination, but the journey, Jim. For the first time in several seasons, there is no clear-cut favorite to win Survivor. Yes, that is partially because virtually everyone remaining is terrible. Still, the element of surprise is refreshing after so many seasons of “X is going to win, and it’s going to suck.”

Upon returning to camp, Natalie talks about her reasoning for eliminating Baylor. Although we’re pretty sure that if Natalie is sitting by Missy and Baylor in a final three, she’s a slam dunk to win, she believes that she’s better off splitting the two of them up in this situation since they’re family. In their alliance of three, she’s clearly the expendable one if it comes down to it. It’s a nicer way of saying, “The two of them have been treacherous all season long, so why would I expect them to be any different with me?”


When Natalie asks Missy if she’s mad, she says no. In fact, showing the type of person she is, she shows relief that her daughter is gone. She calls it “a lift off her shoulders.” Also, Missy has realized that her fate is in the hands of other people at this point, partly because she’s hobbled with a broken bone, but also because she’s close to the final Tribal Council, where the balance of power shifts to the people sitting on the jury.

For Jaclyn’s part, she’s thrilled to still be in the game. She and Natalie discuss the fact that one of the two of them must win the next Immunity Challenge in order to send Keith home. It was definitely dangerous to keep him around, because if anyone is a threat to win, it’s him. In looking at the jury composition, they’re right to determine that he’s the next one to go. The bro vote most likely goes to him, although Josh and Reed are potential wild cards.

Since we’re talking about the Immunity Challenge, it probably means it’s Probst time! Keith is reticent to give up his necklace and for good reason. The challenge has them racing down a giant tower. They have to navigate through some obstacles to collect a bag of puzzle pieces. They have to repeat this process five times. Once they get back with all their puzzle pieces and assemble their puzzle, there will be three pieces missing. Those three shapes will match numbers on a coded guide, and the contestants will have to use those numbers to open a combination lock. First person to do so wins immunity.
