Hello, good people, and welcome to the conclusion of episode 10 of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X. Chris has just been voted out and we are headed back to camp to see the reactions to the biggest blindside since the merge. Jay's feeling pretty good about not playing his idol. Jessica is feeling pretty good about getting rid of Chris. And Zeke and Bret have stepped aside and Bret lets Zeke know that he totally understands the Chris vote. Zeke lets Bret know that the vote was all about Chris and not about their group and that, in his eyes, Bret and Sunday are not on the bottom. He confirms this in confessional, telling us that he really wants to go after David's group, but he needs Bret and Sunday to make that happen. In order to get Bret and Sunday on board with him, he had to remove Chris from the equation. Further, he's super stoked to have gotten to Bret before David did.
And right on cue, Day 29 is dawning; David meets up with Bret and Sunday on the beach. He tells them that he also doesn't feel like they're the next to go. He asks them if they still feel like Jay should be next to go. They agree. At this point, Bret and Sunday are agreeing with everything. David tells us and then tells them that he feels Zeke is playing the best game and that after the Jay vote, it might be time to focus on removing Zeke from the game. Bret tells us that he's already signed on with Zeke, and that he knows what David's about and he's not trustworthy. In Bret's opinion, David needs to go as soon as possible. So Bret grabs Zeke and tells him that David is coming for him. Zeke tells us that it makes sense that they would be targeting each other. They also discuss David having an idol and agree that whatever they do, it has to be kept super quiet or David will freak out and play his idol.
We come back from break and David and Zeke take turns breaking down the rivalry between them. Zeke said that everyone knew this war was coming, so it's time to see who has what troops. Zeke goes to Adam and Hannah to try to win them over. Hannah says that she really likes and trusts David, but she's been playing with Zeke for a month now. Right now, she seems to be keeping her options open. But what's really happening, I think, is that she doesn't know what to do, so she's hoping something will help to clear it all up for her. And just like that, it's time for a...
Probst Sighting! Today's challenge will see the tribe broken into three teams of three. Their feet will be tied together and their arms bound to their side. They will have to take turns slithering through the sand and up a slight hill. Once through the entire course, they'll have to put together a snake puzzle. The winning team will be taken by helicopter on an aerial tour of Fiji and then flown to a Survivor picnic where fried chicken, mac and cheese, and all the fixin's await. There are 10 of them, so one person will not participate. But unlike the last challenge, this time the person not participating will automatically get to go on reward.
