This is the Sixth episode of Survivor: Argentina

Previously on Survivor...

Scott and T.P. talked about the possibly make a truce between The Four A$$holes and Undivided to take out the swing vote alliance JJoe. Over at La Plata Zaya, Sara, and Nikki talked to Audi and Kristie about being in there alliance while Marissa talked to heather about taking them out. Following Necochea's reward challenge loss, Joe went off on Scott about him not wanting help when he needed it. At immunity it was a close battle between Marissa and Totolax in getting the right combination. Ultimately Marissa got it first sending Necochea to tribal. At tribal, both challenges were discussed a little. When the vote came Undivided sided with The Four a$$holes and blindsided Joe 6-2.


Immunity Challenge: Keep It Up
The castaways must balance two poles using the tops of their hands against an overhead board. If a castaway drops either of the poles at any point, they are out of the challenge. The last person standing on each tribe will win Immunity.
Addition Stipulation: The person that last the longest of everyone win hot dogs and soda to be eaten while observing the other tribe tribal.
Winner: Zaya and Tree with Tree staying on the longest.


Night 12

Necochea arrives back at camp following tribal.

Quote1Wow. Hey T.P. can I talk to you real quick.Quote2- Jay
Quote1Sure. That's fine.Quote2- T.P.

Jay and T.P. head into the woods.

Quote1What do you need?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1What was that all about at tribal. Were we not getting rid of Scott.Quote2- Jay
Quote1I'm sorry. We felt Joe was weaker and decided to vote him.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Okay. I trust you T.P. You would tell me if I was now suddenly on the chopping block wouldn't you.Quote2- Jay
Quote1Yes I would. Relax Jay. You aren't going anywhere.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I hope so. I'm just shocked at what happened.Quote2- Jay
Quote1I know.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Let's head back.Quote2- Jay

Jay and T.P. head back to camp.

Jay was obviously shocked at what we did at tribal. I'd like to think that was the last time I work with Scott but this game changes course quickly.


Day 13

La Plata

Everyone is hanging around the shelter while Sara is frying some of the eggs.

Quote1I am so glad we won these chickens.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Big time.Quote2- Heather
Quote1It makes it better knowing it was the only reward we have one so far.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1We can win out if we really try hard.Quote2- Audi
Quote1I'm sure we will lose one more Audi. Those boys are tough when they don't fight.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1We had them at the last challenge.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Kristie, that challenge was close. Totolax could have easily got it before me.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1I don't think it matters. We won. We just relax, enjoy and beat them on the next one.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1For sure. Eggs are ready. Let's eat.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Yeah. Just enjoy another day off.Quote2- Audi
Quote1"Something big is probably going to happen.Quote2- Nikki
This is our third day of no challenge not counting the first day. The first time we had a combined challenge and second time was just a regular thing. We don't know what could happen this time.



James and Chris have gone off to the beach.

Quote1Jay, I hope there are no hard feelings.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Tree, it was fine. Scott, kick butt after I'm gone.Quote2- Jay
Quote1Thanks but you aren't done yet.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Yeah Jay. Honestly that was a one time truce. I want James or Chris gone next.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1We need strength at challenges.Quote2- Totolax
Quote1You're right, but Totolax you are one of the slowest.Quote2- Jay
Quote1I might be slow but no one can pull me down.Quote2- Totolax
Quote1That's true. Jay you really had to try to get around Totolax that one time.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Jay, you are not going anywhere I'm sure of it.Quote2- Scott
Quote1What makes you so sure?Quote2- Jay
Quote1We are telling you right now that you aren't.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1T.P., thanks for that but I know I am the next one to go. I just hope you can trust the other people as much as I trusted you.Quote2- Jay
Quote1I don't know what else we could tell you Jay.Quote2- Totolax
Quote1I'm not even apart of Undivided and I'm sure you aren't their target. The truce was just one time thing.Quote2- Scott
Quote1And now it's done.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Thanks, I will help in challenges until my vote when we lose next.Quote2- Jay
Jay is so sure he is next. I don't blame him. I thought I was done after the one vote. I just hope after a win he can trust us again.


T.P. and them are trying to cheer me up but I know I am slated for the next vote out. I just need to find some safety before the vote but with no hidden immunity idols I don't know where it can come from.


La Plata Night

Heather, Marissa, Audi, and Kristie are outside the shelter

Quote1Can I talk to you two a bit?Quote2- Marissa
Quote1Sure. What do you need?Quote2- Audi
Quote1Marissa and I were thinking about coming together to take out Zaya and the others.Quote2- Heather
Quote1They are great at challenges though.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1That's true but it is also a problem as much as it is an asset.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1They are a challenge threat.Quote2- Heather
Quote1I see your point.Quote2- Audi
Quote1We need them to win though so unless something comes along that we go to tribal no matter what.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1We could win challenges with out them if we believe in ourselves.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1I think we could win without them but it would weaken us.Quote2- Audi
Quote1If we can convince those on Necochea that are on the outs to join us then it won't matter if we are down numbers.Quote2- Heather
Quote1At that point we would have numbers.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Exactly.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1It's a lot to think about.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Take some time to think about it and get back to us.Quote2- Heather
Quote1We will.Quote2- Kristie
Heather and Marissa want to take out our strongest people. I don't think it is a good idea but I don't want to tell them that.


Necochea Night

Chris, James and Scott are out of the shelter.

Quote1Jay is so screwed now. I love it.Quote2- Chris
Quote1He is strong in challenges but we can win with out him.Quote2- James
Quote1He knows it's him and appears to accept it.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Well then it makes taking him out all the more easy.Quote2- Chris
Quote1Yeah. Nothing can go wrong.Quote2- James
Quote1What are we going to do if we lose Jay and then lose again.Quote2- Scott
Quote1We can go to rocks. I feel lucky.Quote2- Chris
Quote1Rocks sounds good to me.Quote2- James
Quote1If you aren't will to put yourself on the line. Why are you here?Quote2- Scott
Quote1Hey Scott. It's been bugging me. How did you get kicked out of the marines?Quote2- Chris
Quote1I yelled at my commanding officer when he told us do to something. I told him that it was a bad idea. I then did it anyways nearly blowing up the ship. He then denied everything ,so I punched him.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Wow.Quote2- James
Quote1I say he deserved it.Quote2- Chris
Quote1I've seen him around sometimes. He lives in my city.Quote2- Scott
Quote1You should punch him next time you see him.Quote2- Chris
Quote1You should do that.Quote2- James
Quote1Let's get some rest and go kick butt tomorrow.Quote2- Chris
As much of an A$$hole as I am, I would take back punching my commanding officer if I could.

For today's challenge, you will hold up two poles against an overheard board using the tops of your hands. If at any point a pole falls you are out of the challenge. The last person standing on each tribe wins immunity. In addition, the last person standing out of everyone will go first to tribal and afterwards will move over to enjoy hot dogs and soda while listening in to the other tribe tribal. We will draw for spots and get started.

Quote1Jay, are you on the chopping block tonight for being close to winning?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1Jeff, I had to win to get myself off the chopping block. There are other people here that should go more than me.Quote2- Jay

Quote1Jay has been a swing vote for most of the game and last tribal we took out the other swing voter.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Totolax, Jay is there in the middle of I'm guessing two alliances of three. Has there been anyone been thinking let me bring Jay back to us and take out the other guys?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1It has been thought of but Jay doesn't trust anyone because of what happened. I don't blame him. We all decided to take out Joe and left Jay out of the loop.Quote2- Totolax

Voting Confessional


No hard feelings. I have to vote someone.


Sorry dude but a swing vote is too dangerous.


I'm not good at being loyal. Am I?


La Plata

You are the strongest one.


Nothing is in the way of you going this time.


I wanted you gone a while back but I will settle for now.


Final Words

Scott. That sneaky bastard. How did I not see that coming from you?


Well, I was doomed from the start for being the oldest one here. At least I got to make it this far.
