This is the eleventh episode of Survivor: Argentina

Previously on Survivor...

Jay and T.P. felt almost defeated after Totolax was blindsided while Scott still wanted to fight and Tree was believing in his final three deal with Zaya and Audi. On the girls side Nikki had her eyes on Tree as the next target and informed her alliance and tried to get T.P. and Jay with her. At night Audi and Zaya were talking about if Tree loses immunity and were overheard by Scott who at the immunity challenge made it happen by winning immunity. At tribal old tribe lines came up again along with who feels safe without immunity. When the votes came Zaya and Audi voted with the guys against Nikki sending her to the jury by a vote of 6-3.


Reward Challenge: 21 Gamble
The castaway will play blackjack against Jeff acting as the dealer. Anyone who gets higher than Jeff will score a point in that round. If a player bust in any round they must skip the next round. The first person(s) to get 3 points wins reward.
Reward:A bar b q with sausage, brisket, french fries, and tea.
Winner(s): Scott, Tree, Zaya
Immunity Challenge: Domino Effect
In the first round, the castaways would race across a series of balance beams carrying a bag of puzzle blocks. The first three castaways to bring all three of their bags would go to the final round in which each player must stack all of their pieces like a line of domino tiles while avoiding tripwires that would topple the tiles that were already stacked. Once all of the blocks were properly stacked, the castaway would start a chain reaction which would be enough to trigger mechanism which will release a ball rolling to a bowl, releasing a flag. The first castaway to raise their flag would win.
Winner: Tree


Night 24

The tribe arrives back at camp following tribal.

At tribal Audi and I decided against voting Tree and voted Nikki. Sara looks pissed.


Quote1Zaya, Kristie, Audi can I talk to you on the beach?Quote2- Sara
Quote1Sure.Quote2- Audi

Sara, Audi, Zaya, and Kristie head down to the beach.

Quote1What's up?Quote2- Kristie
Quote1What the heck just happened?Quote2- Sara
Quote1Well, we didn't want to vote out Tree just yet.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Did you say something?Quote2- Sara
Quote1We tried.Quote2- Audi
Quote1This is so stupid. We had an easy final five run and you two ruined it because you didn't want to lose one person yet.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1It is completely ridiculous. We have been together since day one. Day one.Quote2- Sara
Quote1I know.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1And now because of you two we need to get Tree to vote with us again to get back the numbers but it is harder now because he knows we will vote him out.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Calm down.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Alright. I'm done. Let's get some sleep and worry later.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Okay.Quote2- Zaya
This is the stupidest thing that has happened. I don't want to work with them anymore. I am going to try to get one of them out now.


Day 25

Buenos Iris

Zaya, Tree, and Scott are hanging around the shelter.

Quote1Sara seriously upset me last night.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1What happened?Quote2- Scott
Quote1She went off on Audi and me because we voted with you guys.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Really? They didn't even go off on me.Quote2- Tree
Quote1That's what I'm saying. She is so upset but they never even worried about what we wanted. I created that alliance. I should not be the person that has no say in thing.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I agree.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Me too.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Who created your alliance?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I was apart of one and T.P. I think made the other. I came to an agreement with T.P. and got rid of my old alliance.Quote2- Scott
Quote1That surprised me.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Well I'm gonna talk to T.P. later. I may end up doing the same.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1If you do just let us know before we make a call on anything big.Quote2- Scott
Quote1It usually comes a couple days after the last vote.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Let's go check on Jay. T.P. is probably talking with Sara and Kristie now.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Okay.Quote2- Tree
Scott is playing nice right now. I don't know if I should really trust him. If it involves him then something is amiss about the plan and needs to be figured out.


Inside the forest T.P. has reached Sara and Kristie.

Quote1Hey girls.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1T.P.Quote2- Sara (sounding rude)
Quote1Okay. Kristie, what's with her?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1She is mad at Zaya and Audi right now.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1For what?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Voting with you guys.Quote2- Sara (still sounding rude)
Quote1Okay.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Sara, calm down. Please.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Alright. I'm just upset.Quote2- Sara (in a calm mood)
Quote1We know.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Don't worry about it too much. We weren't mad at Tree when he voted with you girls.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I'm just so upset. I won't take her out but I plan on taking out a close ally of her's first.Quote2- Sara
Quote1I can think of two.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Good. I'll talk to you later T.P. to see if you want to join me in who we decide.Quote2- Sara

Sara and Kristie walk off towards the camp.

Well I went to calm Sara down. I sort of succeeded but now she thinks I might want to join her.


Buenos Iris Night

T.P. and Zaya are sitting out of the shelter.

Quote1So how did Scott end up joining up with you and Tree?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1He felt Chris was taking to much of the control away from him.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Okay.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I'd love to have you and Audi with us because from the looks of things. Sara is really mad at you and wants to take out either Audi or Tree next.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Seriously? She told you this.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1She said she won't take you out but plans on taking out a close ally of yours first. I'm guessing that's Audi or Tree.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Well Tree did vote with us and Audi is the one I told about us voting Nikki. I am willing to join you on this.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Okay.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1If she wants to go after my closest ally. Then let's return the favor and go after hers.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Sounds like a plan. Do you know her closest ally?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Isn't it obvious. Who is the only other girl here?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Good point. I'm going to bed. We can talk to everyone about this tomorrow.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Alright.Quote2- Zaya
Zaya says she is with us fully now. I really hope she is and this works out for us.


Day 26

Buenos Iris

Audi. T.P., Tree, Jay, Scott, and Zaya are all at the beach with Scott fishing.

Quote1Alright, so let's get this plan together.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Sara is going after either Tree or Audi. I'm thinking Tree.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Then Tree you should try your hardest.Quote2- Jay
Quote1What about us?Quote2- Scott
Quote1We go Kristie. Unless she is safe then forced to go Sara.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Exactly. We will go after her closest ally since she is going for Zaya's.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Audi, are you good with this?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Yes. I am good with it.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Are you sure? We can always switch it around.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I just need time to think to be honest.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Then we will give you time.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Okay. Thanks.Quote2- Audi
Personally, I don't care if Audi or Zaya are on board or not as long as one of them is on board.


Over at the camp.

Quote1Okay, we need to figure out who we are going for of Zaya's allies.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Not that I am still friendly with Audi but Tree is not only more dangerous but he was also a reason for them flipping.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1You have a point.Quote2- Sara
Quote1We are going to need at least 2 more people with us if we are to have a slight amount of hope for this to work out.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1True.Quote2- Sara
Quote1So who should we ask?Quote2- Kristie
Quote1I say we talk to T.P. again about this and then if Tree were to be safe talk to Scott otherwise talk to Jay.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Right. We tell T.P. first then wait it out to see who else we should go for because I'm sure Scott would jump at the chance to take out any of us girls.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Exactly. We need to find a good opportunity to talk to T.P. with out making it look like we are talking any kind of game.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Big time.Quote2- Kristie
Zaya is seriously gonna regret leaving us like that for someone she had met way after the alliance she made with us.

Since you are so close to Zaya as much as Tree I might as well vote you.
