Synopsis by Hal Erickson
For the first time in Survivor history, two players have been eliminated from the same competiton due to injuries: the most recent of these is James Clements, who has departed from Survivor: Micronesia-Fans vs. Favorites just before the game begins its 34th day. Likewise dropped from the roster is Alexis Jones, who was voted off in the more traditonal method. This week's Reward Challenge is something of a trivia contest, with the players recalling favortie Survivor moments: the one who is most accurate in his (or her) recollections wins a helicopter trip and a one-night stay at a swanky resort. Requiring more physical exertion is the Immunity Challenge, what with its symbolic coordinates and hidden sand pits. In what may fans regards as Season 16's biggest blunder, Erik Reichenbach goes to great lengths to re-ingratiate himself with the female players--and forfeits his Immunity at the precise moment he needs it the most.
