Jeremy takes on the key maze and tears through it. Spencer and Ciera finish their numbers, but don't know if they have them in the right order. Spencer enters the code. If they have it right, they win. And Spencer...Is...Right! So, Spencer, Joe, Stephen, Tasha and Ciera will all head to the Spa and everyone else gets to go back to camp to deal with Hurricane Abi. As we head to break, Jeremy tells us how badly they lost. He considers today to be a complete waste. It was embarrassing and he's just not happy with how things have gone over the last 24 hours.
After CBS pays the bills, we join the winning team as they arrive to their spa day. The table is full of amazing food and lemonade. Joe tells us how important this meal can be for the next challenge. Ciera tells us that she is pretty excited to be there with different people to talk game. As Joe showers, she asks the group, "So are we talking strategy at all, or is it food only?" Tasha wants to talk game, and I'm pretty sure Spencer does as well. Stephen tells us that when you have so few votes, you need to be looking for anything you can get. He suggests that Ciera and Abi being on the bottom are going to be working harder than anyone else.
Ciera tells the group that if any of them are planning to go to the end with Jeremy, they're gonna lose. Hands down. Tasha actually looks surprised to hear that. Stephen tells us that everyone sees the hierarchy of the alliance and they're trying to flip it. He suggests that the old way of playing, where an alliance of five gets together and stays together with little mini alliances within is just not going to hold this season. Tasha asks what everyone thinks about Wigles. Ciera says if she gets to the end, she'll win because of the first season thing. Tasha tells the group that Kelly is very social; talking to everyone and that everyone loves her. Stephen tells us that there doesn't seem to be alliances anymore, but rather voting blocs - and that today's voting bloc may not necessarily be tomorrow's voting bloc.
Time to check in with the losers of the challenge. Wiglesworth is cooking some lunch and Jeremy is pissed off. He is mad about how terrible they did in the challenge. Since there are only five other people and they're all cooking, he heads off to find the idol. So, he heads over to Tree Mail and starts digging around this huge tree and voila - he has found the idol. Um...wait a second. Not so fast. He's found a clue to the idol - again. The clue this time is not for an idol at a challenge, though. This time, he's given a map to where he'll find a lantern and the idol, but he has to get up in the middle of the night - tonight - to go get it. And here is where sleeping arrangements and placement in the shelter will be huge.
