Episode 6 of “Survivor: Worlds Apart” was a doozy. The blue-collar alliance seemed to be taking control of the game, putting together a plan to take out Jenn. But what they did not know was that Jenn had a hidden immunity idol. When Jenn played her idol at tribal council, she spoiled the blue-collar plan and Kelly was sent packing instead. How would the tribe respond?
Here’s how everything went down in episode 7 of “Survivor” Season 30:
After the council, the tribe was reacting to the blindside created by Jenn’s idol. Jenn was pretty pleased with herself for throwing a wrench in the blue-collar alliance’s plan. Rodney was not so happy. He blamed Mike for the mistake and made a pact with Will to break off from the rest of the blue-collars after the no-collars had been voted out.
The next day the tribe gathered for the episode’s reward challenge. With a canopy pizza picnic on the line, the castaways had to cross a long balance beam to retrieve puzzle pieces and then – in the next round – solve the puzzle. Hali, Joe and Mike advanced to puzzle round after handling the balance beam portion of the challenge with the quickest times. At the end of the challenge, Joe won and picked Tyler, Will, Shirin and Carolyn to join him on the picnic.
During the reward picnic, Joe accidentally found a clue to a hidden immunity idol in the bottom of a soda bottle. Unfortunately for Joe, Tyler saw him. When they returned to camp, Joe showed Tyler the clue, but a suspicious Mike – who was determined to prevent Joe from finding the idol – saw the exchange. Caught between a rock and a hard place, Tyler told Mike what the clue had said about the location of the idol. Mike then organized a search party to find Joe, who had gone off to look for it. Mike finally caught up with Joe and decided to announce to the tribe that Joe had already found the idol – which was not true. In the meantime, Mike went searching for himself and found it wedged in a tree – promptly bursting into tears.
Next was the actual immunity challenge. The castaways had to slide a puzzle piece through three slide mazes and then use the piece to complete another puzzle. The rather quick challenge remained anybody’s game until the very end, but after two false alarms from Dan, Joe won his third straight individual immunity challenge to remain undefeated.
With tribal council looming, the blue-collar alliance was targeting Hali. In the meantime, a girls alliance was brewing – including former blue-collar ally Sierra – that wanted to Dan to go home. At tribal council there was much talk about how “flippers never win,” and when the votes were counted, Sierra stayed true to her original alliance and Hali Ford became the eighth person voted out of “Survivor: Worlds Apart.”
