Reward Challenge Winner: Upolu

  • Reward: A screening of Jack and Jill
Immunity Challenge Winner: Upolu

Voted Out at Tribal Council: OzzyRedemption Island Duel Winner: ChristineLeft the Game: MikaylaRecap: When Upolu returned to camp from Tribal Council, most of the them expressed concern that Brandon's recurring blowups could potentially jeopardize their future in the game. Edna, however, secretly hoped that Brandon's behavior would continue, as it might take the target off of her.

Sophie, Albert, Ozzy, and John witnessed the duel between Christine and Mikayla. The castaways would dissemble a box and use the pieces as planks to build a bridge. Once they cross the bridge, they would use some of the planks to solve a pattern puzzle. The first castaway to solve their puzzle would win. Despite the support that Mikayla received from Albert and Sophie, Christine won her fifth Redemption Island Duel in a row in a closely fought match. 
With Christine's continued domination at the duels and the possibility that Savaii might lose the next challenge, Ozzy began to consider volunteering to be sent to Redemption Island so that he could defeat Christine ahead of a tribal merge. A win by him would mean that the tribes would go into the merge in equal numbers. He approached John about his plan and also offered to give his Hidden Immunity Idol to someone to hold for him while he was at Redemption Island. 
At Upolu, Coach tried to inspire his tribe by having them all "find" the Hidden Immunity Idol. Coach, Albert, and Sophie staged a hunt for the idol for the others. While passing the tree mail stand, Coach and Sophie found a package announcing the upcoming challenge, so they took the opportunity to announce they had "two pieces of great news": the upcoming challenge and the "finding" of the Hidden Immunity Idol. 
At the combined Reward/Immunity Challenge, the tribes would split off in pairs of castaways. One pair would act as callers to the two other pairs as they navigate blindfolded and hooked to a rope through an obstacle course to collect four bags of masks. One pair of castaways would then use only their sense of touch with no help from the rest of the tribe to match the masks into pairs. The first pair to properly match all eight masks would win for their tribe. Upolu had Coach and Rick as callers, while Savaii used Jim and John. During the third swapping of pairs to retrieve the final bag of masks, John struggled to get Ozzy and Whitney properly hooked into the rope. Savaii fell behind and never recovered, letting Upolu take the win. 
Ozzy was extremely upset at John's mistake, which made John concerned that Ozzy would renege on his plan to volunteer to go to Redemption Island. When Savaii got back to camp, they blamed the loss on John and told him that he could redeem himself at Redemption Island. However, by the next morning, the anger had subsided. Ozzy retrieved the Hidden Immunity Idol, presented it to the tribe, and put forth his volunteer plan. 
Jim and Keith were concerned about Ozzy volunteering to be voted out since, if the merge did not happen the next day, the tribe would be weaker with John competing in the next challenge rather than Ozzy. At Tribal Council, Ozzy offered his plan to volunteer with the twist that he would tell Christine that John had found the Hidden Immunity Idol and used it to blindside Ozzy. Before the votes were read, Ozzy handed the idol over to John and made him promise to give it back to him when he returns. When the votes were read, Ozzy got his wish and he was sent to Redemption Island by a vote of 5–1.
