Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With Bruce Kanegai returning to the mainland because of a medical emergency, six castaways remain to play the traditional Reward Challenge for a "new car" prize, in this case a 2006 GMC Yukon. The incredibly lucky Terry Deitz wins the car, and also his fourth Immunity Challenge (an endurance test involving a weighted hook) in a row -- the third time in series history that anyone has managed to rack up four of these. Meanwhile, wacky Shane Powers creates a "BlackBerry" out of a piece of wood and communes with himself at his favorite "thinking rock"; he may be "nuts," as Danielle DiLorenzo contends, but he's also a hoot. Elsewhere, Cirie Fields is rapidly emerging as the "spoiler" of the bunch, scheming against her teammates at every turn, and maneuvering her most formidable rival off the island at fade-out time.
