We begin this weekâ€˛s Survivor One World recap of Episode 8 on Day 21. Troyzan and Jay are starting to regret booting Jonas. It may not have been a good idea, since the women now outnumber the men 6 to 5. They hope the next person to be sent away is a woman, to even things up. Tree-mail arrives with a surprise, a bottle of 7-Up!

The Reward Challenge splits the Tikiano Tribe into two teams again, each with five players. The Green Team has Jay, Troyzan, Kat, Chelsea and Alicia. Gold Team has Mike, Kim, Sabrina, Christina and Leif. Neither team selected Tarzan, so he gets nothing. One at a time, players will slide down from a platform and race to carry a heavy wooden crate. After fetching all the crates assemble the puzzle. The winning team gets a BBQ picnic with steaks, burgers, key lime pie and, of course, plenty of 7-Up! The Green Team holds the lead from the start. But while Troyzan directs the puzzle assembly, Christina on the Gold Team makes up for lost time. She figures out the puzzle faster and Gold Team wins!
The winner arrive at the â€˛7-Up Oasisâ€˛ and find a cool pool, a grill and plenty of food and drink. They say a prayer for thanks and then dig in. Kim takes charge of the grill while Sabrina tests the key lime pies. The two ladies later discuss a plot to set up Mike by telling Troyzan that Mike is out to get him. If they can pull it off, the women will have a 6-4 advantage in The Game.
Back at Loser Beach, there is also some strategy talk. The men want to boot Christina but Kat tells them that Mike is a bigger threat. This does not sit well with Troyzan and Jay. The Green Team returns from their picnic and bring back a cooler loaded with 7-Up on ice. Thatâ€˛s nice!
Day 22 arrives with stormy weather. While most of the men work to shore up the shelter, Tarzan takes part of the new side wall to build a fire with. Chelsea calls him out on it and they bicker for a bit. Tarzan tells Chelsea she probably hates him because he is a plastic surgeon and she obviously is upset with his profession after the crummy boob-job she got. Chelsea thinks Tarzan is insane!
Time for the Immunity Challenge. Each player must work bags of puzzle pieces through a twisty rope obstacle. The first four to do so move on to Round Two to assemble the puzzle. Jay, Kim, Troyzan and Alicia succeed in making it to the second round. The women appear to be ahead, but their efforts are incorrect. As they try to redo their puzzles, Jay comes up from behind and wins.
Back at camp, Kim and Troyzan talk about booting Mike. Meanwhile, Chelsea tells Jay about Mikeâ€˛s threat in front of Christina and Alicia. This makes Jay upset and a minor rebellion results. Kim tries to negotiate with the men who still want to vote off Christina. Kim and Sabrina fret over their options.
At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst is amazed that nobody feels particular threatened. Kim says it is due to everyone having been in at least two alliances. Chelsea adds that the alliances are mixed and cover many angles. Then Tarzan tells Jeff that he is being played. That everybody, except one person, knows who is going home tonight. Kat confirms to Jeff that he is being duped. Jeff doesnâ€˛t really care, heâ€˛s got a steady paycheck. The vote takes place and Jeff counts the ballots, Mike and Tarzan voted for Christina, Alicia and Christina voted for Tarzan and the rest give Mike the boot.
Spilers for next weekâ€˛s Survivor One World show that the women are now firmly in control. Or are they? Troyzan and Jay plot to flip one or two ladies over to the menâ€˛s voting block. Will they succeed? Tune in next week for another Survivor One World recap.
