We begin our recap of Survivor: South Pacific, Episode 4 on Day 9 at Savaii Beach. Ozzy and Elyse seem to be getting rather chummy, which makes Jim nervous. So Jim chats up Cochran about sending Elyse home next Tribal Council, which Cochran is all in favor of. Anybody but him! Over at Upolu Tribe, Brandon is still behaving weirdly. Now he feels compelled to tell Edna that everyone is lying to her and spills the beans about Coach′s 5-person alliance. Since sets Edna off on a journey of mistrust.
Tree mail arrives bearing swimwear and instructions for each tribe to send two witnesses to Redemption Island for another duel. Jim and Cochran go for Savaii, Brandon and Edna go for Upolu. Before Christine and Papa Bear Mark do battle, Brandon takes the time to apologize to Christine for lying about her. She is not impressed. The duel is a tossing game, the object is to land small sandbags on 10 crates. Christine goes five for five, building a lead, but as they go for the more distant crates, Papa Bear manages to even things up. Its 9-all when Christine finally wins, staying alive in the game.
Day 10 and Edna is still concerned about whom to trust, if anybody? She becomes excessively chatty, which annoys Stacey and Mikayla. Over at Savaii, Cochran talks with Dawn about booting Elyse. She suggests that Don may be counted on as an additional vote.
Day 11 and its time for the Immunity Challenge. Three members from each tribe, two men and one woman, will bear weights on a pole across their shoulders. The opposing tribe will decide who gets additional weight placed on their pole. The last one standing wins immunity, another idol clue and a batch of chickens. Keith, Dawn and Jim will bear weight for Savaii. Brandon, Stacey and Albert for Upolu. Each round adds 20 pounds to the victim. During the first 20 minutes, weight is distributed about with each of the ladies carrying 100 pounds and the men much more. Keith and Albert falter after 26 minutes, each with 180 pounds. Brandon and Jim then get attention. They both tie the Survivor record of 220 pounds, then go to 240 before both cave in. Dawn struggles at 140 pounds, but it is Stacey who buckles under her 140 lbs. Savaii Tribe wins!
Back at Camp Upolu, Stacey feels the heat, figuring she will be blamed for the loss. Edna thinks she will be viewed as the weakest link. Stacey talks with Coach, making her case for staying. She then slithers over to Brandon and tells him to beware of Albert, who is working on a secret alliance with Mikayla and Sophie. This sends Brandon to Coach to repeat the lie. Coach gets upset and tells Brandon to ignore what Stacey says. Sophie catches wind of this, too, and both Coach and she seem ready to cut Brandon loose.
At Tribal Council, Stacey again makes the pitch for staying in the game. Coach agrees that she did a good job. Sophie says that the tribe must balance strength with trust. Jeff tries to stir things up, asking people to name the one thing about somebody else that irks them. Albert snores, Stacey is aloof, Edna talks too much, and Brandon is a Hantz. Jeff is surprised that Brandon told everyone hat he was Russell′s nephew. Brandon talks about how he wants to restore the family honor and gets emotional. Its time to vote.
Stacey votes to boot Edna, but the rest send her packing. Coach tries to give Stacey a hug, but she shrugs it off, saying that they are all liars and she′ll be back to get even. Spoilers for next week′s Survivor: South Pacific show how Coach does not want to be called ′Benjamin′, which everybody does call him anyway. A challenge gets very messy and nasty.
