We begin our recap of Survivor One World, Episode 12 on Night 30. The gang has returned to Camp Tikiano after giving Troyzan the boot at Tribal Council. The girls are glad he′s gone. But Alicia seems upset that Christina was less than loyal. So if Tarzan the last man standing, the knives are being sharpened as the ladies begin to eye each other for elimination. Alicia thinks she is running the show, but as we′ll see, she may be in for a rude awakening.

Day 31 and tree mail comes courtesy of Sprint. Yes, the tribe receives video messages from their loved ones. They are on the island and the Reward Challenge prize is a picnic with family. So Jeff Probst brings out the family members one at a time. We get plenty of tear-jerking tales and happy reunions. Players team up with their loved ones to compete on a rope obstacle race. They are tethered together as they work their way through the twisting ropes. Kim and her sister Beth are out front but Kat and her cousin Robby close the gap and win. Everyone expects Kat to take Tarzan and his wife, along with Christina and her dad along for the reward. But instead, Kat picks Kim and Alicia with their sisters, because Kat wants to have fun.
The picnic turns out to be more like a sit-down dinner, complete with a waitress. Kat immediately begins floating the idea of taking out Sabrina next, because she may be too popular with the Jury members. Alicia seems on board with the idea at first. Kim discusses her alliances with her sister for guidance. Back at camp, the losers vent about Kat′s choices. Sabrina and Chelsea seem quite angry about Kat. They hatch a plot to vote her off.
Day33 and we find Kim and Chelsea discussing the next boot options. Chelsea is determined to get rid of Kat. Kim still considers the merits of blindsiding Sabrina. With so much at stake now, Kim commits herself to trying to win all of the remaining immunity challenges.
Speaking of which, it is time for the Immunity Challenge! We have another endurance test, this time with players perched at the edge of a platform off shore. They must keep their arms behind their backs as they hold on to a tether line which will be suspend them over the water. Jeff Probst will add slack from time to time, making the ordeal more difficult. Sabrina is the first to bail out, followed by Tarzan. Jeff adds some slack and we see Alicia and Chelsea take a dive. Then Christina goes next, leaving a showdown between Kim and Kat. Kat starts moaning about Kim always winning, blah-blah-blah. But Kim pays her no attention and remains stoic. Finally, Kat gives up and Kim wins. Kat refuses to high-5 Kim or clap and cheer her victory.
Back at camp, Kat is still whining about losing. She talks with Alicia about booting Sabrina and Alicia pretends to go along. But Alicia has already changed her mind and wants Kat gone next. She and Sabrina try to talk Kim into the dumping Kat from the tribe. Later on, Kim and Chelsea go back and forth between booting either Kat or Tarzan. Somebody will be blindsided tonight!
At Tribal Council, Kat tries to justify her choices for sharing her reward prize. She says she picked Kim and Alicia to just have fun and was not thinking of strategy. Sabrina goes on the offensive and says Kat was wrong in her choices. Chelsea adds that Kat always uses her age as an excuse for anything wrong she does. Tarzan agrees. Alicia is surprised that Sabrina exited the IC so quickly and that Kat hung on so long. Both Alicia and Sabrina then dump on Kat for snubbing Kim after the IC. Kat is starting to realize that everyone is picking on her. Even Jeff gets in on the fun, getting Kat to vent about Sabrina being too honest and popular. Then Kat says that blindsiding Sabrina tonight would be ″fun″ and ″exciting″.
It’s time to vote. We see Kat and Sabrina exchange votes. Nobody plays an idol so Jeff starts tallying the ballots. The blindside is unanimous. The rest of the tribe give Kat the boot! She starts crying as she takes her walk of shame. Kat′s last message is that they hurt her feelings and she hopes Jeff Probst will invite her back for another game of Survivor so she can vindicate herself. Spoilers for next week′s episode of Survivor One World show Tarzan acting crazier than usual. Its all part of his scheme to be taken to the Final 3. Stay tuned for our recap next week to find out if it works!
