A surprise from a local family quickly shakes up the Final
Four in a traditional Maya ceremony. Later, a surprise thunderstorm
sets the Survivors wondering if a decision they made upset
the Maya gods.
- Two Survivors question their alliance and agree on who should
be eliminated. Will this decision work to their advantage?
- With only three days left, the Final Four face off in an
intense battle to make it to the end. Who will outwit, outlast
and outplay to be become the Sole Survivor?"

back to ToothOfTime's
final four spoiler, Lydia would appear to be the boot here. As
just about every person on the Survivor boards noticed as soon
as it aired (say, here,
the post-Ep13 preview of
the finale clearly shows
Rafe at the F4 tribal council, wearing the immunity necklace. So
it seems likely that Rafe
wins the challenge. We suppose one of the
other three could have actually won, and then idiotically handed
him the necklace, but that seems unlikely.
As for the challenge itself, it appears to involve running around
a maze, collecting triangular cylinder objects with designs on
them (perhaps to assemble some final puzzle at the end?). Fairly
typical F4 IC fare.
As Ives points out, the overview shot of the maze appears to be
from the end, with Rafe assembling his puzzle at the final table,
in front of Probst.
been told Danni wins this challenge, and picks
Stephenie (instead of Rafe) to accompany her in facing the jury.
Which makes sense, and fits with ToothOfTime's
final four list.
Final Three IMMUNITY CHALLENGE

the jury votes will essentially be a referendum on Stephenie, voting
for or against her, as opposed to an endorsement/rejection of Danni.
In Danni's favor: reaching the final two from an extreme minority
tribe position (as Chris did in Vanuatu), athleticism, getting
along with everyone, and so on. Danni doesn't seem to have many
negatives, although three of the jurors were only in a tribe with
her after the merge, at which point she was in an opposing alliance.
For Stephenie, she stabbed Jamie and Judd in the back. And she
had her little spat with Lydia. Plus, she's a returning player.
But she played the game hard, and managed to be at the head of
a dominant alliance throughout the game. Similar characteristics
to Palau winner Tom Westman. Unlike Tom, however, she didn't pick
an unpopular tribemate as her final two opponent. Stephenie's key
Ep1 quote may turn out to be: "But
I do have that nervousness that maybe they'll see me as too threatening,
or maybe I'm not as spectacular as they thought I would have been."
How will the votes break down? We'd guess Rafe is a sure vote for
Steph, and perhaps the only one. From her post-boot comments, Cindy
sounds like a solid Steph vote as well. We think Bobby Jon will
also cast his vote for Steph, he respected her control of Yaxha
in Ep1, and she got him to the jury. So Steph only needs one other
vote to fall her way to win the million. For what it's worth, we've
heard Steph was much better liked than has been shown on TV. Whether
that translates into votes remains to be seen, however.
As for Danni's votes, Gary is likely to pick her, since they were
in an alliance together (although he
was with Steph as well), and they share a similar religious background.
Judd will probably vote Danni to pay Steph back for booting him.
Then there's Jamie. He was strongly anti-Steph in Ep1 ("How
am I going to win a million dollars now that she's here?").
But he was later in an alliance with her. And then was unceremoniously
removed by her. Probable Danni vote, making three penciled into
The final vote is
Lydia's, which could go either way. She was in awe of Steph in
Ep1, but clearly things have changed since then. But we're leaning
for another Steph vote.
In reality, we have no idea how the contestants actually voted.
The real vote total could be anything from a 5-2 stomping by Danni
to a narrow win (4-3) for either woman. But this is Survivor: Stephenie
LaGrossa, and we think Steph could somehow
pull out a win. And
if not, that won't be terribly surprising, either. Either way,
we're done with spoiling Survivor. Thanks for reading our excessive
