Tonight’s episode kicked off with Hustlers being happy with voting off Simone. Ryan loved all the items she left behind. Ryan and Devon planned to team up with Ali to vote out Lauren next, since there was an age gap between them. Ali and Lauren already planned to team up and stick together however Lauren targeted Ali’s closest ally – Patrick.
On Heroes, Chrissy and Ben thought they were controlling the tribe. Ben wanted to protect Ashley and figured if they lost immunity, he would keep her and cut either Alan or JP. Alan couldn’t knock a coconut out of a tree while JP was spearing countless fish from the sea. Ashley was frustrated that she cannot talk to JP after Alan accused them of being a power couple on day 3. Ashley spoke to Ben about it and Ben was leaning towards getting JP out to break up their power couple but Ashley still thought Alan was a loose cannon.
Healers gloated about their challenge domination. Cole and Jessica continued their special bond while fishing. To help get her closer, he reveals to her that Joe has the idol.
Back on Hustlers, Patrick searched for the idol in plain sight and that bothered Ryan. Ali advised Patrick to play smarter because he was annoying the tribe mates with his antics. He did not appreciate her warning as he felt like it stunted his personality.
Joe angered more of his Healers tribe mates over food. Cole used this as an opportunity to get Joe out. He planned a blindside with Jessica to get Joe out. Cole tells Roark about the idol, and the plan but this upsets Jessica for spilling the beans too soon. Roark loved the idea of blindsiding Joe and they fill Desi in as well. Jessica was still upset because Joe could find out and this could backfire on Cole.
