After tribal council, Ozzy mopes about being the only member left of his original tribe. The Aitu tribe quizzes Candice over if she thinks that the Raro tribe might have sent her to Exile Island to save her from tribal council, and Candice plays dumb like she didn’t even think about that. On the Raro tribe, a four guy alliance has formed.
The reward challenge is an obstacle course with a decoder table. The first tribe to solve the code wins the reward of three blankets, two pillows, and one hammock. Aitu comes from behind to win reward. In addition to the reward, Aitu also gets to select someone from Raro to go to Exile Island, and they select Adam.
On the Aitu tribe, Cao Boi climbs a tree and knocks down a bird’s nest looking for eggs. It turns out that there is a little chick in the nest, and Cao Boi feels guilty and puts the nest back in the tree.
The immunity challenge is a rescue competition which involves assembling a stretcher, swimming, carrying a tribe member, and building a fire. The Aitu tribe wins immunity. On the Raro tribe, Stephannie takes the blame for losing the challenge and says she’s the weakest link. But just when it starts to look like Stephannie’s going home for sure, the girls get together and plot to take out J.P.
At tribal council, Jenny calls J.P. out as the person who takes command on the tribe. The fourth person voted off Survivor Cook Islands is J.P. Calderon. A shocked J.P. says “Wow, holy crap, damn, you guys outwitted me big time. That was pretty good.” After J.P. leaves, Jeff Probst says “Well, you just voted out someone who appeared to be one of the strongest members of this tribe. He obviously did not see it coming. I’m hoping this means you have a plan on how to get this tribe better together and start winning some challenges.”
