Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Day 18 arrives on Palau Island with two fewer "Fans vs. Favorites" contestants: Jonathan Penner has been removed from competition due to a foot injury, and Chet Welch has been voted off. The Malkalal tribe wins the Reward Challenge (pushing money stones) and enjoys a visit to a spa, while the Airai Tribe aces the Immunity Challenge (this one involving a floating bridges and five bundles). Ozzy Lusth is beginning to wear out his welcome with the ladies of Malkalal; Jason Siska and Tracy Hughes-Wolf are sent to Exile Island; and a combination of heavy rain and profound loneliness prompts one player to quit the game cold. And finally, an elaborate scheme to manipulate the Tribal Council votes falls apart at the seams.
