Day 25

Andrea and Eddie go to the Lagoon together and are really enjoying their time alone. However, Andrea is only playing Eddie so that she can try to get answers.

Sherri and Eric are out of the challenge. Dawn is out. Malcolm is out and Michael is out. Eddie, Reynold and Cochran are out. It is down to Brenda and Andrea. After fighting to breath with no room, the winner of the challenge is Brenda.

The tribe gets back to camp and congratulate Brenda. Malcolm gets with Dawn and Andrea and they say that they are all game for splitting the votes between Eddie and Reynold. Andrea is loving the new Dawn because she is the best liar. Dawn realizes that Malcolm isn’t dialed in because he thinks that he can trust her. Malcolm talks to Reynold and says that they are voting for Andrea. Reynold shows his Idol to Dawn and tells him not to screw him. Dawn says that it is shame on him. Reynold says that they are solid with their plan, but Eddie talks to Andrea. He asks if they are splitting for him and Reynold. Andrea tells him to trust her and Eddie lets it slip that her name has been talked about. She gets emotional and changes everyone’s mind to vote out Michael. Dawn tells Andrea that everything she has done to get Malcolm out would go down the drain.

Tribal Council Time and Michael says that some of the Favorites are turning against each other and that works in his favor. Phillip says that they incorporated Sherri into Stealth R’Us and says that she has a unique quality in the game. Eddie says that he is playing his own game and not be a puppet. Phillip says that whoever has an Idol, they will be voted for. Michael says that he wants to play the game. Phillip says that if they stick together, they get to the end. Andrea says that they can change the game. Phillip says that he believes that the person who is going to make a move is going to error. Before the votes are read, Malcolm asks for Reynold’s Idol because all their votes are for him. He gives it to him. The votes are read and it is Andrea with 3 votes, 1 vote for Reynold and Michael with 5 votes. The 10th person voted out is Michael.
