Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Joel Anderson is gone, and Day 15 of Survivor: Micronesia-Fans vs. Favorites begins with fifteen of the original twenty contestants remaining on Palau Island. The series' medic Dr. Jessica Sartini certainly has her hands full, what with no fewer than four players injured in the previous episode: indeed, one player is so incapacitated by a foot injury that he is compelled to leave the game. Elsewhere, Chet Welch and Jason Siska are bundled off to Exile Island; the Reward Challenge involves building a tunnel blockade, with the winners benefiting from the expertise of some seasoned Micronesian fishermen; and the Immunity Challenge finds the players negotiating the waters between several floating platforms. In the final moments, another member of the formerly "all-favorite" Malkalal tribe is voted off.
