Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The first castaway to be voted out of the new Xhakum tribe is 22-year-old farmer Brandon Bellinger, resulting in the necessity to form a few new inter-tribal alliances. The hunt for the precious Immunity Doll continues, with the troublesome Judd Sergeant IV once again rubbing everyone the wrong way by sending them off on the wrong track in search of the much-coveted stone figure. This week's Reward Challenge involves using an ancient Mayan slingshot weapon called the Atlatl, with a surf 'n' turf as the prize. And the Immunity Challenge obliges the castaways to untie wooden planks from a balance beam, then use those selfsame planks to get across a rickety rope bridge.
