Next round will be the last round and it's Mike versus Kelly - the guy trying to throw the challenge against the girl he wants to save. Kelly drops the curtain and Mike actually hesitates for a few seconds looking at the curtain. Mike arranges everything wrong and steps on his mat. When all is said and done, both are wrong. Let's reset and do it again.
As they stand up in front of the curtain, Mike tells Kelly that he's giving it to her and to listen to what he says. He actually tries to help her remember where everything is. Probst tells them that if they don't get it this time, he's dropping it from six items to five for the next attempt. And wouldn't you know it, they're both wrong again.
Once again, Mike tries to direct Kelly at the curtain. Even as they're placing the objects, he's helping her. He purposely switches the two types of bottles and tells her to reverse them. Once they step on their mats, Mike is wrong - Kelly is right and Nagarote wins immunity! As we head to break, Kelly tells us that Mike threw the challenge to her and that it's the first time she felt like someone actually had her back. She can't wait to get back to her Blue Collar Tribe now.
We come back from break to play a thrilling game of "It's anyone but Joe." As the tribe arrives at camp, Mike is apologizing to the tribe for blowing the challenge. Joaquin is telling him not to worry about it and that he could have done the same thing. Mike tells us that by throwing that challenge a little something inside of him died, and that it’s making him really not trust Rodney. He tells us that he's watching Joaquin just pull Rodney in and that they're becoming a power couple in this game, and power couples have to be broken up before they can make power moves.
Hey, future Survivor players, listen up - power couples have to be broken up before they can make power moves. This is why Mike orchestrated Lindsey's ouster. I'm not sure that Lindsey would have been a decent member of a power couple, but the point is still there. She and Sierra were too close, have to split them up. Same here and Joaq-ney is way more dangerous than Lindse-rra were. We cut to a scene of Mike asking Rodney what's up for Tribal tonight. Rodney tells him that it's Joe and that everyone is on board with that. Following the first rule of Survivor, Mike is down with that, they shake hands, bro-hug and it's all good. Joe is toast. Rodney breaks down for us how they threw the challenge and Mike looked like an idiot. And this was all part of the plan to get rid of the biggest threat out there, Joe. Everyone's down with this and Joe will be the next one going home.
