Ep.1 advantage menu

During the marooning, Ron finds an envelope labeled "Secret Advantage." After getting to camp, he opens it, and follows the directions to the actual advantage (near the water well). It's a three-episode advantage "menu": Could be a (1) reward steal, (2) extra vote, or (3) hidden immunity idol, and it expires after the third Tribal Council.

Ep.1 IC: Social Network

Ep.1 IC: Social Network

Ep.1 IC: Social Network

The entire tribe must maneuver through a rope obstacle, then one person (Joe, Chris) must climb a rope and ring a bell. Then as many people as possible must cross a 3-tier balance beam, and untie a bar that releases an easier-to-cross beam for the rest of the tribe. Kelley injures her forehead during the balance beam. One person (Eric, Lauren) then climbs a crow's nest, pulls a lever to drop a slide, then six players (all but Ron, Julia, Victoria; all but Wendy, Reem, Rick) work together to solve a giant slide puzzle (as first seen in South Pacific). Results: Kama wins, after taking a huge lead on the balance beam.

Julie sits out. Challenge: As (mostly) seen in Game Changers. Eight people must jump off a dock and swim in to cage, untie a giant 400-lb snake, lift it over the cage, carry it to the beach, then under a crawl obstacle, and finally, lift the snake onto a table. There, they untie knots and remove six number tiles from the snake. Number tiles are used to solve a combo lock (Ron, David). This releases eight rings, and someone (Joe, Eric; Chris, Keith) must toss the rings to land them, flip canoe paddles and spell IMMUNITY. Kama takes a huge lead on the swimming/snake portion, but by the ring toss, Chris catches them up at 1-1. But Keith misses his tosses, and Kama wins, 8-4 (with Joe, Eric, and Chris each flipping four paddles). Kama selects fishing gear for their reward, over spices and a knife set.

Chris finds a crate buried in the sand. Inside, there are four maps, one for each Extinction resident.

After Keith sneaks off while everyone's eating, the remaining three race to catch him. Chris tackles Keith right as he's reaching the tree, and grabs the advantage tube: it contains bamboo, string, and message saying "Practice." Meanwhile, Rick heads to the other tree, and finds its advantage: An extra vote they can give to one person at the next Tribal Council. Aubry receives it later in the episode.

Ep.7 idol

Ep.7 idol: Rick

Ep.7 idol

Apparently concerned that Rick could be voted right back out, production just puts an idol in his bag. Except it doesn't stop him from being voted right back out, because it has to be split in half and shared with someone else (he picks David), and then it only becomes fully powered if both are still there during the Ep8 Tribal Council. Yay?
