Brad tried to make nicey, nice with Candice and John, but they were having nothing to do with it. "That was the sweetest voice I heard on Redemption Island," Candice said. "His wife voted me off and he went after John." Caleb said he didn't plan to vote off Brad but he thought he had the opportunity and he took it. Hayden didn't know where this left him. "I guess Caleb learned a lot from Colton." Laura Bonham still feels like she's the new girl in town and doesn't have the bond the others on her tribe have.
RI challenge: Monica and Candice have words. John wins, brad second, Candice goes home.
Katie worried about her status in the tribe if they don't win challenge. Tadhana wins first challenge.
Steaks and other things to eat now over fishing supplies. Laura B. the choice before tribal council. At council, others said their loved one is on their own.
Laura M. voted off Laura M because she might be able to beat Brad at RI. "People on my tribe know i'm playing the game and the more I try to manipulate the game, the more danger i'm in," Aras said.
Who went home: Candice (no last name given), 30, from Washington, D.C. Her puzzle-solving abilities didn't keep up with her husband, John who won, and Brad Culpepper, the latest arrival at Redemption Island. Jeff asked her since she had never spent a night at camp how she could have gotten information about Brad, who she attacked every challenge. She said she based all her information on what other contestants told her. Well la, de, da. She strikes me as a person who thinks she knows everything and jumps to judge.
Who went to Redemption Island: Laura Morett, 43, mother to Ciera and co-owner of a construction company. Her tribe sent her to RI because she might be able to beat Brad and everyone seems to want him gone. But more importantly, they think Monica might be more useful to the game if Brad is gone. "I trusted some people in the game that I shouldn't have trusted," Laura M. said. "But I'm still in the game."
Most annoying player: Katie. I don't she's exactly the brightest person in her tribe. But after the last tribal council vote, all she could talk about was that she hoped Caleb's lead was a turnaround in the game for her. It could have been but doesn't seem like it matters right now.
Most surprising moment: Laura's reaction when she realized the others had dupped her when they told her they were voting for Laura B.
Just about Jeff Probst: Jeff seemed really confused when Tadhana won the immunity challenge and they chose food to eat now or fishing gear so they could eat the rest of their time in camp. Guess they're just young and stupid.
Next time: Aras could make a move. But Gervase and Tyson have another plan - when to dethrone King Aras. Jeff announces that things are going to be switched up. Sounds like a "switch the buff" game. Laura thinks she can win at RI.
