On Wednesday’s episode of Survivor: South Pacific, viewers got to step in and join Brandon’s magical apology tour. Just like President Obama, he apologized to everyone who was willing to listen for his past sins and gave a tearful sermon like Jimmy Swaggart at tribal council. He hopes that he will become a better man so that the man upstairs will be proud of. By the man upstairs, this examiner means Morgan Freeman. Of course, you know that yours truly really meant George Burns.
Over at Savaii, Ozzy and Elyse were sitting on the hammock and discussing things like if anyone in Ozzy’s family was as outdoorsy and athletic like him. Jim was watching them and was concern that this alliance will make Ozzy stronger. He discussed his concerns to Cochran and want Elyse gone to make Ozzy weaker. Meanwhile, Dawn, while not worrying about swimming in her undies because she’s a Mormon, is worrying that she might be the next to go because she’s the oldest in her tribe. After hearing Jim talking strategy, Ozzy said that he talks too much. Dawn disagreed.
Meanwhile, at Upolu, Brandon was in the middle of his apology tour as he tried to be a better person and admits that he let his pride gets the best on them. He first apologized to Mikayla for trying to get rid of her, but she was still annoyed. Then, he talked to Ednya and told her that he’s not the part of the Alliance of 6 and warned her that she might be voted off. Worried that she might be gone, she tried to play the social game by talking to her tribe mates and massaging Coach’s back by her feet. But, she ended up annoying them with her endless questions and non-stop talking.
Over at Redemption Island, Christine and Papa Bear competed in front of Jim and Cochran from Savaii and Ednya and Coach from Upolu. Before the challenge, Papa Bear swore that he will go after the ones responsible for his ouster. Then, Brandon continued apologizing by telling Christine that he’s sorry for her eviction. She accepted but believed that he wasn’t sincere, In the challenge, the two will toss sandbags to several crates. and the first one to land the sandbags on 10 crates wins. In a close battle, Christine won.
Back at Savaii camp, Jim and Cochran heard that Dawn was worried about Elyse’s influence on Ozzy, and they tried to convince her to join their side.
The Immunity Challenge had three members from each tribe to hold poles behind their backs with weights added time after time. The amount of weight and who will get it will be determined by the opposing tribe. It was down to Dawn and Stacey and, after a grueling battle, Dawn was the last one standing and won immunity for her Savaii tribe as well as 2 hens and one rooster and another clue for the hidden immunity idol.
Over at Upolu, even though she played well in the challenge, Stacey was still concern about her status in the game while Edna was worried if she will be the next to go. After talking to Coach, Stacey told Brandon that Mikayla, Albert, and Sophie are planning something and that he should look out for them. This is the first time that viewers realized that Albert actually exists. Anyway, he later told Coach about this, and he told Brandon to forget about it.
At tribal council, Jeff Probst asked the members on what the most annoying part of some members. For Albert, it’s that he snores. For Edna, she talks too much. Edna said that Stacey wasn’t engaging. Brandon got emotional talking about being proud to be a Hartz and his uncle Russell as well as the pressure of savinghis family’s good name. He cried when he talked about being someone that God can be proud of.
In the end, Stacey was voted off and sent to Redemption Island to face off against Christine in another duel.
