Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having voted Brianna Varela out of the game in the previous episode, the Yaxha tribe is now smaller than the rival Nakum tribe as the competition heats up in the already sweltering jungles of Guatemala. While fishing for food, the Yaxhas have a much-too-close encounter with a crocodile, but fortunately everyone escapes unscathed. In this week's Reward Challenge, the contestants must answer questions about each other, with the person mentioned most often receiving a gift. And while four of the castasways are off on a picnic, a tribal switch takes place--but have the loyalties undergone a switch as well? Elsewehre, Gary Hogeboom continues to hide the fact that he is a former NFL player, lest the others consider him to wealthy to remain in the game. The episode draws to a close with an Immunity Challenge in which the players must paddle to the middle of a lake to retrieve three bags full of Mayan war clubs.
