Wednesday night on CBS’ Survivor: Nicaragua, the merged Libertad tribe was still reeling from the previous Tribal Council, with Jane taking to nicknaming Marty, “Farty” (mature, eh?). But can ya blame her after the verbal beating he gave her? Name games aside, who went home on week 9 of Survivor: Nicaragua?
But first, Marty has a plan to flush the immunity idol out by trying to convince everyone to say they are voting Noanka out, but really vote out Jane. Most seem on board with this, as Jane would be a major threat in the finals.
Before all that though, it’s reward challenge time. The tribe is divided into tow teams- conveniently it turns out to be Boys v. Girls-and they must finish an obstacle course, collect keys and unlock three locks. The booty? A tour of Nicaragua on a zip line, followed by a barbecue feast of chicken, steak, potato chips, apple pie and brewskis.
The men win the challenge and when host Jeff Probst asks if any of them want to give up their reward spot to one of the women (Purple Kelly is really hungry) none of them bite. No gentlemen here, I guess!
Podiums in the jungle? This challenge is very ‘Big Brothery! The tribe mates play a “Memory game” where they must remember the sequence of picture that Probst holds up.
Jane and Na are out first. Marty busily recites the sequence over and over, but is somehow beaten by Brenda. Brenda wins immunity.
Later, Marty asks Bren if she knows about her buddy Sash’s plan. He says Sash wants everyone to pretend to vote out Naonka but instead blindside Jane and vote her out (Na has the immunity idol and he wants it flushed out).
Later Brenda asks Sash about his plan and he says, “My plan is whatever your plan is.” When will these others get a clue and break these two puppetmasters up???
Sash admits he kinda likes having Marty around– he’s a blabbermouth and a good cook. Brenda agrees.
At Tribal it’s the attack of Naonka as last week’s flour stealing gets rehashed. But even after a berating at Tribal, she doesn’t play the immunity idol. Turns out to be a smart move, because although it’s close between Jane and Marty, Marty gets sent home.
