After the immunity challenge, Varner requested one on one time with everyone since he figured he was next to go. Debbie wants Varner gone but Sarah keeps pushing for Ozzy. Andrea was unsure. Zeke wants to keep Varner but doesn’t want to lose Ozzy. Zeke told Varner, then Varner told the girls what Zeke did…
