Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Michelle Yi is gone, leaving nine contestants to vie for the grand prize in the waning days of Survivor: Fiji. Earl Cole would seem to have the inside track for victory, largely due to his remarkable skill at brokering alliances. The winner of the "Get Smashed Q&A" challenge is Cassandra Franklin, who invites several of her friends to share her reward, a festive day on a 70-foot luxury yacht. Elsewhere, Yau-Man Chan earns the season's first individual immunity after winning an endurance test involving two walls and a very tiny connecting foothold; and Mookie Lee is mighty sore about being bundled off to Exile Island. The episode ends with the first official tribal council of the newly merged Bula Bula tribe--and of course, with another player voted off the island.
