Filmed: November 19-21, 2000 | Aired: April 5, 2001 | Re-watched February 21, 2015
Notes: Nobody won the auction, in case you're wondering. As for the IC, while it's a "classic" challenge (i.e. recycled from Borneo), we prefer ones with a measurable order of finish. But still, this was the start of Colby's winning streak, in which he won all but one of the remaining challenges, and all the remaining ICs. Also, his streak starts one episode earlier than Kelly's did in Borneo.
Still, there was absolutely no reason for Amber not to flip here. The only reason Elisabeth or Rodger didn't win this season is that they were unable to convince Amber to align with them at this vote (well, and Colby would have won all the remaining immunity challenges). She was clearly out of the loop on the Jerri boot. A free agent, ripe for the plucking. Did Colby reassure her? It certainly wasn't Keith, and her relationship with Tina seemed tenuous at best (Amber ended up voting for Colby to win). Had Nick, Rodger, and Elisabeth tried harder, they might have turned it around here. But they didn't.
- Nick received 4 votes, from Tina, Colby, Keith, and Amber (voted out, 4-2-1).
- Amber received 2 vote, from Rodger and Elisabeth
- Keith received 1 vote, from Nick (for not bringing his backpack to Tribal).
