Last time the tribe voted out Alina even though some tribe members wanted Marty out. Marty was spared because of the pact Sash made with him over the Hidden Immunity Idol.
Back at Espada, NaOnka felt bad for Jane because Marty called her out at tribal council and Jane had to sit there and take it. NaNa went on to say that if it was her being talked about she would come back and hit hard. Marty realized that he was also being targeted because some people had written his name down. So his plan was to flush out NaOnka’s idol by getting everybody to talk about her and make her nervous, but really blindside Jane. Jane saw Marty talking to everyone so she knew that he was trying to get her out.
The teams were split up and randomly chose sides; which turned out to be men vs. women. Chase was the last person and had to sit out the challenge but got to choose which team to back, if that team won he would get to share their reward. Chase chose to back the women.
The teams had to go through a physically demanding obstacle course and the first team to finish the course won the reward. The men won easily and their reward was a bbq and canopy tour. Marty tried to get the others in on his plan and said they needed Brenda’s support. Sash agreed to Marty’s face but behind the scenes he said that it was him and Brenda who were the smartest and had the power of the vote.
At Espada Brenda told Chase he should have gone with the men and not gone with his heart. But Chase said that he wanted the girls to trust him. Later Holly told Chase that she was concerned about Brenda and Sash aligning with Marty. NaOnka overheard and told Chase that Brenda was cool but Chase shouldn’t talk to her and annoy her. So Chase went over to talk to Brenda but she didn’t really seem to be listening, only filing her nails. Chase couldn’t get much out of her and later she admitted he annoyed her. NaOnka ruminated over getting rid of Chase because of his paranoia.
It was a memory challenge for individual immunity. Marty was happy because he thought he was the smartest person there. The survivors were given a giant cube with different images on each side. Jeff Probst held up a series of images and the survivors had to correctly show the exact sequences of images. Marty and Brenda were the last two standing and Brenda won immunity.
Back at camp the names thrown around were Jane, NaOnka and Marty. Benry and Fabio decided to play dumb and go with Marty’s plan. Marty and Dan tried to convince Chase to vote NaOnka. Holly asked Chase what his plan was and if he was still going to vote Marty. Chase said yes but still was concerned about Brenda. Marty went to talk to Brenda on the beach. She realized that Jane was a threat but didn’t want to be told what to do by Marty because she said that her and Sash were running the camp.
Sash and Brenda talked. Sash thought keeping Marty around a little bit longer would be advantageous to them because he was a good cook and told them exactly what he was up to. Brenda didn’t like being put in the middle but the two realized they would be the deciding votes.
At tribal council Marty tried to out Jane and NaOnka. NaOnka went off as predicted. When Fabio tried to interject she went off on him. The tribe went to vote and NaOnka didn’t use her immunity idol. The votes read were either Jane or Marty. Marty got 7 out of 11 votes and was voted out.
