Public Enemies Number One and Two is the seventh episode of Survivor: Ghost Island.

Previously on Survivor...

With the Kalou tribe dissolved, everyone was across the board with their thoughts on this. Melissa took it as a blessing, Colin thought of it as a way to pick off the last two Marau, Kenni saw it as an opportunity, and Samantha saw it as a threat. However, a former Kalou saw this as a breakthrough to remove an opposing alliance from the game compeletely.

At the reward challenge, the castaway's memories were put to the test, having to match at least seven of thirteen possible pairs. The Marau tribe blew away the Totolo tribe, winning at a 7-2 game. Winning twenty pounds of beans and rice, Melissa and Colin were happy, immediately cooking some of it while Melissa went off to spear fish. Danny took this time as a gift, wanting to talk to Melissa about Kalou's agenda. She shooed him away, mostly because he'd scare off the fish, and would talk to him the next day. When that day arrived, Xane and Danny proposed to Melissa and Colin and idea to join up as an alliance. They agreed to vote Shaniqua because of her work ethic. Meanwhile, at Totolo Kenni had convinced Frank and Rebeckah to join her cause of getting iron-fisted Samantha out of the tribe. Frank was immediate on the response, and Rebeckah was convinced by Kenni that she could handle a tiebreaker.

At the immunity challenge, everybody, but Shaniqua, fought hard to attempt to get a ring and touch their tribe's post to score. Sadly, Marau couldn't score enough points to win, and were sent to tribal council for their fifth time. With a brief talk over Kalou's tribe dynamics and worries of Marau being picked off, Xane, Melissa, Colin, and Danny all agreed that Shaniqua's time was up in the game. She retorted to them that anything could happen in this game. Shaniqua was right, pulling out Kalou's idol negating four votes against her. Dani was unfortunate receiving the last two votes, sending her to the jury, and Xane's alliance a man down. Eleven remain, who will be voted out tonight?

Night 18

Returning from tribal council, Melissa, Xane, and Colin are pissed off about what had happened.

What the (bleep) those (bleep) (bleep) found a goddamn idol! How the (bleep) did they find the damn thing? Those bitches are so (bleep) lazy, they must've found it while tanning. They are so (bleep) dead.


Those bitches are still in the game. One of them should've gone home. They can go rot. Voting Danny out was just awful.


Mel and Xane are just so angry about what Shaniqua did. Shan just did the absolute worst thing. Everyone's gunning for her. We have to preempt her next attempt to idol us.


Shaniqua and Ashleigh, on the other hand, are extremely happy about what had happened.

And that's what you call a smart move. Me and my gurl need to find Marau's idol so we're safe for another round. That's how we roll.


Later, as Shaniqua and Ashleigh are sound asleep, Colin, Melissa, and Xane talk about their problem.

Quote1We need to do something about them.Quote2- Xane
Quote1Easy, we plant a fake idol.Quote2- Colin
Quote1That's not a bad idea.Quote2- Melissa
Quote1Wait, what if they find the real idol?Quote2- Xane
Quote1That's why we're going to hide where they'll spot it quickly.Quote2- Colin
Quote1I can't wait to see their faces when they play it. Dumb bitches.Quote2- Melissa

The three fall asleep soon after to rest for their next reward challenge.

Day 19

At the Marau camp the next day, as Shaniqua and Ashleigh are on the beach, relaxing, Colin, Xane, and Melissa get to work on their fake idol. Colin grabs Shaniqua's bag and dumps the contents of it. Melissa begins to carve out the fake idol on a piece off wood using the machete. Xane and Colin begin to sift for the cloth and note Shaniqua may've kept in her bag.

Our fake idol depends on finding the piece of cloth and note that go with the idol. If we can't find it, my plan crumbles.


Within a few minutes Xane finds both the cloth and note, and set them aside. The guys then put back everything that was in the bag, save the cloth and note. Melissa's fake idol is beginning to look like the real idol. Colin puts Shaniqua's bag were it was. The guys go off to see if they have tree mail, leaving Melissa alone carving the fake idol. Halfway done with the fake idol, Shaniqua and Ashleigh return to the campsite. Melissa hurriedly puts the fake idol, note, and cloth into her bag, and puts her bag in the shelter. Luckily, the guys come back with tree mail for their next reward challenge.

Totolo also recieves treemail and both tribes make their way to the challenge area. Totolo arrives first, followed by the Marau tribe.

Quote1Totolo, getting a good look at the new Marau tribe, Danny vote out at the last tribal council. Now for today's challenge, taking turns, each of you will hit three large targets with a burning ball flung from a platform. First tribe to burn all three targets win. The winning tribe will be helicoptered to another island for a barbeque feast. Totolo, you have one extra member, decide who'll be sitting out.Quote2- Jeff
Quote1I will, Jeff.Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1Hilbert, take a seat on the bench. Everyone else, we'll get started.Quote2- Jeff

First up are Shaniqua for Marau and Frank for Totolo. Both take aim to a target. Both apply the force they want the fireball to go. Shaniqua and Frank both fire. Frank is right on target, but Shaniqua is way off, causing her fireball to fall into the water.

Next up are Ashleigh and Alec. Both take aim at a target. They apply their force. Ashleigh and Alec fire their fireball. Ashleigh's fireball grazes underneath a target, but burns it. Alec misses completely and his fireball falls into the water.

Third up, Melissa and Samantha are up for their respective tribes. Both women take aim at a target. They apply their force and launch a fireball. Melissa and Samantha both are right on target, and the targets begin to burn.

Forth up are Xane for Marau and Kenni for Totolo. Xane and Kenni take aim at their last targets. They apply the force need to launch. Xane lauches first, and Kenni right after. Both fireballs are a direct path to their target. However, Xane's fireball hits the target first, followed by Kenni's fireball, which begins to burn its target. Within seconds, Xane's target is burned up first, winning Marau reward.

Quote1Marau wins reward!Quote2- Jeff
Quote1This is your fault.Quote2- Samantha (to Kenni)
Quote1Marau, the helicopter will be with you shortly. Totolo, I have nothing for you. You can head back to camp.Quote2- Jeff

The Totolo tribe heads back to camp, as the helicopter for Marau arrives.

Back at the Totolo camp, Samantha has the tribe's fishing gear and heads for the men. Kenni and Rebeckah watch from a safe distance.

Quote1All right, boys, we're low on fish. It's time for a fishing expedition. Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Relax, we'll go.Quote2- Alec
Quote1Frank, did you here me? You're going fishing with Hilbert and Alec.Quote2- Samantha
Quote1No, you can't tell me what to do.Quote2- Frank
Quote1You're going to fish, and that's final!Quote2- Samantha
Quote1You want fish so damn bad, do it yourself. People aren't going to wait on you hand and foot.Quote2- Frank
Quote1Just go fish you lazy bastard!Quote2- Samantha

Samantha continues to yell at Frank, not realizing Hilbert and Alec have already left.

I think Frank sticking it to Samantha is perfect. She needs to realize not everyone's going to listen to her. I know I'm speaking hypocritically, but Samantha has been blackmailing me for weeks now. I want her gone, but I simply can't afford to do it.


Frank, he's part of my alliance, but his work ethic around camp is shocking. While everyone is doing chores, such as laundry, boiling water, cooking, or gathering, he's shut up in the shelter. He may stick it to Sam, but he's gone after we eliminate Samantha


Meanwhile, the Marau tribe enjoys their reward. The tribe eats the food like there's no freaking tomorrow.

The food at the reward was so good. We've been living off coconuts, rice, beans, and the occasional fish I spear. There's nothing more motivating than having good food.


A half and hour later, Shaniqua and Ashleigh decide to go swimming before they leave their reward. Melissa, Colin, and Xane use this time to talk.

Quote1The fake idol is almost done. We do need to place the idol somewhere though were they'll find it.Quote2- Melissa
Quote1How about underneath a tree?Quote2- Xane
Quote1You mean like find a tree with its roots exposed and hide it under there?Quote2- Colin
Quote1No, just simply sitting nearby a tree in plain sight. We know they're lazy, but I think that'll be good enough.Quote2- Xane
Quote1All right, Xane, when we return to camp scout out a tree that you'll plant the idol by. Colin, I want you to watch Ashleigh and Shaniqua. Let me know if they're returning to camp. I'll finish the fake idol and Xane will then plant it where he finds suits.Quote2- Melissa

Later, the Marau tribe is brought back to their camp. Ashleigh and Shaniqua return to the beach to relax, while colin watches them from afar. Melissa gets to immediate work on the fake idol and Xane leaves to find the perfect "hiding" spot for it.

The day winds down, and by sunset, Melissa has the fake idol finished, wrapped with the not and in the cloth, and hands it off to Xane to hide it. Colin returns from the beach, revealing that the girls were coming, but Melissa tells him that she already finished the idol. The tribe decides to get themselves some sleep, everyone exhausted from today.

Day 20

The next at the Marau tribe, Ashleigh and Shaniqua begin to look for the idol. They walk and search for the Marau idol. After about two hours of searching, the girls are near a tree with a rock underneath it. The two notice a piece of thick cloth on it. Shaniqua picks it up and opens it. She reveals the fake idol and reads the note.

Quote1Oh my god, gurl we have the idol!Quote2- Shaniqua
Quote1Great, so which one do we use it on?Quote2- Ashleigh
Quote1With the merge coming up, Melissa. We'll get props from Totolo on doing so.Quote2- Shaniqua
Quote1We're going to throw the next challenge as well?Quote2- Ashleigh
Quote1Hell yeah!Quote2- Shaniqua

Ashleigh and Shaniqua leave the area to head back to the beach. Shaniqua puts the idol into her bag on the way back. Fourty-five minutes later, Xane enters the area where the fake idol was planted. He makes a quick look around. He concludes that Shaniqua and Ashleigh have found it. He returns to camp to tell Melissa and Colin.

Quote1Did they find the idol?Quote2- Colin
Quote1Yep.Quote2- Xane
Quote1I can't wait to see their faces when they use it.Quote2- Melissa
Quote1Same here.Quote2- Colin
Quote1Oh yeah.Quote2- Xane

Day 21

The next day, both tribes are sent tree mail telling them to go to the challenge area for their next immunity challenge. Both tribes arrive and Jeff explains the challenge.

That person cannot be Hilbert.Quote2- Jeff

Quote1Since we have a tie, for the tiebreaker, both tribes will send up a person to shoot an arrow. Whoever can get closest to the center will win immunity. Totolo, Marau, choose one person to represent you in the tiebreaker.Quote2- Jeff
Quote1Melissa will.Quote2- Colin
Quote1I will.Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1Alright, let's get started.Quote2- Jeff

Melissa and Hilbert grab a bow and arrow for the tiebreaker. Both hold back the arrow and bow string. They take aim at the target and shoot. Melissa's arrow hits the edge of the four and five point ring. Hilbert's arrow hits near the center of the target.

Both tribes proceed back to camp.

After an afternoon of chatting, the Marau tribe heads to tribal council.At sunset, the Marau tribe heads off to tribal council. Upon the tribe puts their torches behind them and take a seat. Danny walks into the tribal council area wearing a pink long-sleeved shirt, blue denim jeans, and a pair of red shoes. He takes a seat on the jury bench.

Quote1Introducing the jury, Danny voted out at the last tribal council. Marau, you must love me if this is your sixth tribal council.Quote2- Jeff
