Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The teams are balanced nine to nine as Mary Sartain of the "all-fan" Airai tribe is voted off Palau Island just before Survivor: Micronesia-Fans vs. Favorites enters its seventh day. Once again the "all-favorite" Malkalal tribe wins the Reward Challenge (involving a football and some canvas bags), while the Airais emerge victorious from the Immunity Challenge (a volleyball game with cocoanuts). A few alliances are solidified, Kathy Steckman and Ami Cusack are shuttled off toe Exile Island, and Palau is hit with some mighty bad weather, with the Favorites weathering the storm slightly better than the Fans.
