Tonight’s episode begins with the tribe still being in shock over the past tribal council. Ben was happy that his idol played out how it did. He goes to get water and the tribe agrees to go after Ben yet again at the next tribal – no matter what. Devon tells Ben that there’s no way he’s going to let him win immunity.
At the crack of dawn, Ben is up looking for a new idol while everyone is still sleeping as he is aware he basically needs to find one or win immunity to survive in the game. Chrissy and Mike wake up and realize Ben is gone and hope he didn’t find one.

Winners: Devon and Chrissy; they bring Ryan.
Back at camp, Ashley and Mike were furious that Ryan got to go on the reward. Ben planned to take advantage to turn them against the others. He lays his pitch on Ashley but she is hesitant to trust him in the game, so Ben goes looking for the idol once again.
At reward, the three planned to get rid of Ben. Chrissy pitched an alliance to Devon and Ryan and he accepts her offer. Chrissy worried about Ashley getting in Devon’s way and wants her out after Ashley called her out for picking Ryan over her or Mike to go to the challenge. Chrissy was unsure who to take out this week: Ben or Ashley.
