This is the Fifth episode of Survivor: Argentina

Previously on Survivor...

Things one the Necochea tribe calmed down with Travis gone. Both Alliances quickly went to work with The Four A$$holes needing an out and the others figuring out who should go next. Over at La Plata, Zaya and crew put there focus on a weak Marissa but when reward challenge time came the plan was shifted to conforting Jessica H when Kayla was medivaced from the game. When La Plata lost immunity Jessica H had not improved at all and the decision for the vote was clear. At tribal Jessica made no effort to stay and was voted out 7-1.


Reward Challenge:The Great Escape
Each tribe will be locked inside a prison-like cage. In order to escape, the tribe members must untie a series of ropes in order to release a machete. Then the tribes must use their machete to cut through a rope, then they must undo another series of knots in order to release a plank, which will in turn release a pole. They must use the pole to retrieve a set of keys on the outside of the cage. Once the keys are collected, they must unlock their chains and release their escape hatch. First tribe to do so wins.
Reward: A roaster and 2 Hens
Winner: La Plata
Immunity Challenge: Lake Launch
One at a time, six tribe members would slide down a water slide. They would then swim out to retrieve a numbered tile, then run up the hill they slid down to drop their number off. Once all six tiles were retrieved, the remaining castaway would use the tiles to solve a numeric puzzle. The answer to the puzzle is a combination to open a locked chest, which holds an ax. The first tribe to open their chest and use the ax to cut a rope that would raise their tribe's flag would win.
Winner: La Plata


Night 9

La Plata Arrives back at camp following tribal.

Tribal went well but not well for us. I was hoping she would try to fight for her spot to stay but it never happened. Now I am down alliance members.


Zaya, Sara, and Nikki all out side the shelter by the fire.

Quote1We need to think of something quick.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Yeah down two final five alliance members.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1We need to talk to a couple of the other three and get them into our final five deal.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Yeah, but who will we leave out? Heather, Audi, and Kristie are all good.Quote2- Sara
Quote1I see Heather as a potential threat down the road.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1I think it should be Audi and Kristie. I really like Audi.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1So are we all in agreement? Tomorrow we talk to them and get them in.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Yeah.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1Definately.Quote2- Zaya
Looks like Audi and Kristie just jumped some spots. That help out me and Zaya in the long run.


Day 10


Everyone but Scott is hanging around the shelter with Totolax making rice and beans. Scott went into the woods.

Quote1Let's not fight at the challenge today.Quote2- Chris
Quote1I agree. We do so well when we don't fight.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I don't think they would stand a chance if we all worked together.Quote2- Jay
Quote1You guys know that our last two challenges were head to head stuff right.Quote2- James
Quote1Doesn't matter we beat them once when we didn't fight.Quote2- Joe
Quote1But we don't have the one person who really helped a lot in that challenge now do we.Quote2- James
Quote1We can still win if we work together.Quote2- Tree

Scott comes out of the woods.

Quote1No challenge mail guys.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Well I guess we don't have one.Quote2- Totolax
Quote1Guess not. It's Usually here by now.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Hey T.P.Quote2- Scott
Quote1What's up?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Can I talk to you on the beach for a while?Quote2- Scott
Quote1Sure. Totolax, save us some.Quote2- T.P.

Scott and T.P. head on down to the beach while Totolax continues to cook the food.

Quote1So what do you need?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I've been thinking. Our alliances haven't really been working together and have been trying to take each other out.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Okay and you are going where with this?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Jay and Joe are major swing votes in anything. I propose that our alliances work together to take one of them out or maybe both should we lose immunity.Quote2- Scott
Quote1That is an idea, but what is really in it for me. I mean I have them pretty solid.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1But are they the best ones to keep around? They are swing votes meaning they can easily flip over to the girls.Quote2- Scott
Quote1I'll think on it man and I'll get back to you alright.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1That's fine. Don't think too long though.Quote2- Scott
Quote1I won't. Let's go back and get some food.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Alright.Quote2- Scott

Scott and T.P. head back over to the campsite.

Scott gave me something to think about. I am now in a predicament. I can continue on and knock out him and his alliance or team up and take out one or both of the swing votes. I will have to Tree and Totolax sometime.


La Plata

Heather and Marissa have gone off to the beach. Zaya and Audi are off in the wood while Sara, Nikki and Kristie are in the shelter.

Quote1I was thinking. Me, you, Sara, Nikki, and Kristie all in an alliance.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1That sounds good.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Cool. Marissa is still the first target.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Yeah, I hope we don't lose though.Quote2- Audi
Quote1I agree.Quote2- Zaya
Audi is on board. Which is great because four people is a majority but a fifth is needed at least come merge.


Zaya came and talked to me about an alliance. I trust her dearly but why all of the sudden on day 10?


Over at the camp Sara is stirring up rice while Nikki and Kristie are in the shelter.

Quote1What if we took out someone like Heather before Marissa?Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Why? Marissa is much weaker.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1I'm just thinking. I like you two and I really trust Zaya. If we were to have Audi who is just as trusting then we could maybe take this game.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1That is a good idea. Heather could become a threat.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Exactly. What do you think?Quote2- Kristie
Quote1I think it's a good idea. Sara?Quote2- Nikki
Quote1I like it.Quote2- Sara
Quote1"Cool.Quote2- Kristie
Kristie just did our job for us. We were supposed to convince her in and she just volunteered.


Necochea Night

T.P. Totolax, and Tree are up out of the shelter.

Quote1I didn't want to tell you guys this earlier but Scott offered a temporary truce to take out at least one of JJoe.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1They might be swing votes but they are good with us.Quote2- Totolax
Quote1I'm not sure about that.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Joe isn't the strongest of people so maybe just him.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I don't feel right about making a decision until later.Quote2- Tree
Quote1I agree. We should give it some time so we can think about it.Quote2- Totolax
Quote1Alright. Let's get some sleep for tomorrow.Quote2- T.P.
T.P. told us about taking out Joe before the remaining of The Four A$$holes. I really want them gone but he has a good point. I just don't know.


Day 11

La Plata

Marissa and Heather are off in the woods while the rest of the tribe is at the beach.

Quote1What kind of challenge do you think we will have?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1We should prepare as if it will be immunity.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Last time we had a day off an immunity challenge came.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1Whatever challenge it is we will win it.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1Hopefully Marissa doesn't slow us down during the challenge though.Quote2- Audi
Quote1She is going to be gone either way if we lose.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I still think Heather could go before Marissa.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1How about which ever of them does worse.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1I'm good with that.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Alright.Quote2- Kristie


T.P. and Scott are fishing in the shallows while the rest are at camp.

Quote1Did you talk to Tree and Totolax about what I said?Quote2- Scott
Quote1Yes I did.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1What did they say?Quote2- Scott
Quote1They are both really unsure and asked for time to think about it.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I get that but time is also important here. You can't think too long and then it could be too late.Quote2- Scott
Quote1I know. You also can't quickly act or else you may make a really bad decision.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Find a balance between them.Quote2- Scott
Quote1I think it's a good idea, but I will say that I am going to stick with what my alliance decides.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1I feel you.Quote2- Scott
Quote1No hard feelings if they don't want to do it.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1There will be of course. I don't get to be an a$$hole by being completely nice.Quote2- Scott
Quote1That wouldn't be an a$$hole at all.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1No it wouldn't.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Let's take the fish back and have Totolax cook them up real quick.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Alright.Quote2- Scott
Scott has been very calm about this and it really is weird. I hope we make the right call.


Scott picks up the fish they had caught and hands some to T.P. before heading back to camp.

Reward Challenge

The tribes arrive at a field location with two large cages behind them.

Necochea taking your first look at the new La Plata tribe. Jessica H voted out at the last tribal council.

–Jeff Probst

Welcome to today's reward challenge. Here is how this is going to work. Each tribe will be locked in one of those cages. Your goal is to escape them by untying a series of ropes to release a machete. When you have you machete you will cut another set of ropes to release a plank which will in turn release a pole. You will then use that pole to retrieve three keys. You will then use those keys to unlock the chains and release the escape hatch. First tribe to release the hatch and run out wins reward. You want to know what you are playing for?

–Jeff Probst

Quote1Yes.Quote2- Everyone
Quote1Your reward will be three chickens. Two of them are hen and the other is a roaster. I know it's worth playing for. Necochea sitting somebody out. You can not sit out the same person in back to back challenges.Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1We will sit out Totolax.Quote2- Scott
Totolax take a spot on the bench. The rest of you I will give you a minute to stradegize and we will get started.

–Jeff Probst

Both tribes gather together discussing what they are going to do. After both tribes are finished and been placed and locked in the cages.

On my go you may begin untying the ropes for the machete. Survivors ready...GO.

–Jeff Probst

Both tribes run up to the ropes to begin untying the machete.
Scott "Move I got it covered. I got it covered."
Zaya, "Sara, help me out here."
Joe, "Scott let me help."
Scott, "I got it covered."
Jeff, "Necochea struggling early. La Plata working good though to ropes."
Sara, "Move that one. Now that one."
La Plata's machete is untied.
Jeff, "La Plata have their machete. Working on the next part."
T.P., "Scott seriously here, I'm going to help."
Scott, "Alright. Alright."
Men continue untying the ropes while Audi hacks away the ropes releasing the plank and pole.
Jeff, "La Plata have their pole. Now working to get the Keys. Necochea making progress on their first set of rope now."
T.P., "Pull right here and then here."
Scott, "Got it."
Jeff, "Men have their machete."
Nikki extends the pole reaching for one of the keys and hooks it on."
Jeff, "La Plata has one key. Necochea pick it up."
Jay hacks away at the rope to release the plank and pole. Nikki reaches for the second key and hooks it on."
Jeff, "Necochea has their pole. They can now go for their keys. Nikki has the second key for La Plata they only need one more."
Tree reaches the pole out and hooks on the first key. Heather manages to hook on the final key for La Plata.
Jeff, "La Plata have their keys now working on the locks. Necochea has one key they are behind."
Chris, "We know that."
Kristie and Marissa quickly unlock the locks while Tree grabs the second key. La Plata then rushes out of the cage.

La Plata is out. La Plata wins reward.

–Jeff Probst

After Necochea gets out of their cage.

La Plata congrats on winning the reward come and get. As for Necochea I have nothing for you grab your stuff an head back to camp.

–Jeff Probst

Nikki and Zaya walk up and grab the cage of chickens.


The tribe arrives at camp following their loss at the reward challenge.

Quote1Seriously Scott. Why didn't you let me help?Quote2- Joe
Quote1I thought I had it. My bad.Quote2- Scott
Quote1We could have easily won that challenge.Quote2- Joe
Quote1Joe it's alright. It was only reward.Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Scott, you really should let people help you during challenges.Quote2- Joe
Quote1Alright, Joe. I did by the way. T.P. helped.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Oh what after we were way behind. Personally I think you are the weakest person here in the challenges. Totolax might be slow but he will at least work together.Quote2- Joe
Quote1Are you seriously calling me weak. Listen I am not weak. I maybe hard to work with but that is only because I thought I had it.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Joe, calm down.Quote2- Jay
Is Joe serious right now? Caling me weak. Nobody calls me weak. When somebody has the nerve to call me weak then someone has to pay for that mistake and Joe right now that will be you because T.P. and the rest of Undivided were right there.


Jay and Joe head off towards the beach for Joe to calm down a bit.

Quote1Joe, you good.Quote2- Jay
Quote1Yeah. I was just a little frustrated.Quote2- Joe
Quote1Okay. If we lose we can take out Scott.Quote2- Jay
Quote1Good. I hate him so much.Quote2- Joe
Quote1I know. I do too.Quote2- Jay
Scott really needs to go. Joe was however was wrong to go off like that but I will stand by him.

Quote1Just couldn't sleep and all. Come over here please.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1Alright.Quote2- Heather

Heather walks over to where Marissa was sitting.

Quote1What's on your mind?Quote2- Heather
Quote1Zaya, Sara and Nikki I think have an alliance going.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1They do hang around a lot.Quote2- Heather
Quote1Yeah. If they get Kristie or Audi they can take you and me out.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1You think we should team up and try to get both of them to take out Zaya, Sara, and Nikki.Quote2- Heather
Quote1That's the idea, but I understand if you don't want the oldest person here with you.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1No no. I want you here.Quote2- Heather
Quote1Alright.Quote2- Marissa
Marissa made a good point. Zaya, Sara, and Nikki have to have an alliance. Since they haven't talked to me they must be planning to take me out later. I just hope I can get the other two with us.


Day 12

Immunity Challenge

The tribes arrive at a beach location.

Welcome to your fifth immunity challenge. Tree I will take it back.

–Jeff Probst

Tree walks up and hands Jeff the immunity idol.

Immunity is back up for grabs. For today's challenge six tribe members will slide down one at a time, then swim out into the water to retrieve a numbered tile and come back. Then the next person goes. Once all six tiles have been collected the seventh member will use them to solve a combination lock to unlock the chest containing an ax. First tribe to release their flag by cutting the rope wins immunity and is one step closer to winning the million dollar prize. Necochea sitting somebody out can't be Totolax.

Joe, take a spot on the bench. The rest of you I will give you a minute to stradegize and we will get started.

La Plata

The tribe arrives following their win at the challenge.

Quote1Whoohoo. We won.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Hey, there are eggs in the pin.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Well yeah there is a rooster in there isn't there.Quote2- Heather
Quote1Not a rooster but a roaster. There is a difference.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1Well then why do we have eggs? You need a rooster don't you?Quote2- Heather
Quote1No, you do not need one unless you want them to hatch into baby chickens.Quote2- Marissa
Quote1So wait. They can still lay eggs even without a rooster. How is that?Quote2- Sara

Marissa leans over to Sara and whispers in her ear.

Quote1Oooooooh. Now it makes sense.Quote2- Sara
Quote1Can you whisper that to me over here?Quote2- Heather
Quote1Sure. Anyone else want me to whispers it to them?Quote2- Marissa
Quote1I'm good as long as we get eggs to eat.Quote2- Zaya
I can't believe they didn't know that you can get eggs from chickens with out a rooster. Of course being a zoologist does tell you those kind of things.



T.P., Tree, and Totolax are all at the beach.

Quote1Are you sure this is what we want to do?Quote2- T.P.
Quote1Yes. I have thought long about this.Quote2- Tree

Quote1I'm sorry about that. I was frustrated about the challenge.Quote2- Joe
Quote1Jay, what happened at the reward?Quote2- Jeff Probst

Author's Notes

The title was said by Scott after Joe called him weak.
