We started last night’s episode of Survivor 43 off with some of the Baka tribe members talking about Gabler and whether he knows if his Immunity Idol from the Prisoner’s Dilemma twist from Week 1 of Survivor was still good. Elie and Jeanine were convinced that he had no clue and decided Elie would try to get the information out of him. Read on to find out what transpired from there including who got voted off of Survivor 2022 last night!
Sami, who was part of the conversation with Elie and Jeanine, went directly to Gabler and asked him if his Immunity Idol was still good. Gabler explained to him that it is still good until after their next Tribal Council. Sami then turns to Gabler and tells him that Elie and Jeanine know this, but they don’t think that Gabler does. They talk about how they should keep this information close and not let the girls know.
They did fill Owen in on the information though and while Gabler, Owen, and Elie were talking, Elie suggested that they have a “fake idol-making day” to help pass the time. Mentioned that maybe they could use some of the beads from Gabler’s temporary Idol to do so, now that it’s expired. Gabler explained that he planned to give the Idol to his daughter as a souvenir and would rather keep it intact and allowed her to think that he believes the Idol to be inactive. After this, Elie ran to Jeanine to tell her that Gabler has no idea that his Idol is still active.
At the Immunity Challenge, Baka and Coco pulled off wins which came with not only Immunity but also rewards in the form of tool kits and a basket of fruit. Prior to the Tribal Council, Noelle was sent on a journey with a castaway from Coco and Baka. James and Owen, who joined Noelle, listened to Noelle tell them all about the last Tribal Council and how she found herself on the wrong side of the vote. She explained to them that she thought that she was in trouble this week and implied that she would be really happy to get some sort of advantage to help give her an edge.
When the three castaways got to where they were going, they were faced with the same decision that Gabler, Dwight, and Karla had to make on the Premiere of Survivor 43. James and Owen both decided that they were going to protect their vote and allow Noelle to take it. They knew that she needed it and she promised to have both their backs when they made it to merge.
Noelle returned to camp and lied to her tribemates about risking her vote for an advantage. She did tell Dwight that she got an advantage though and revealed that it was a Steal-A-Vote. From there, Vesi headed to their second Tribal Council in a row where they voted Nneka Ejere off Survivor 43 for her role in their Immunity Challenge loss. Noelle didn’t need to use her Steal-A-Vote this week and has it tucked away for when she does.
