Eliza and Jason are spending a lot of time together, and discover some treemail or whatever they're calling it these days. It instructs the team to pick one player on Malakal to sit out today's challenge and go to Exile Island. That player will then get individual immunity from tribal council if his team loses today's challenge. Eliza is shocked to see there's a tribal council tonight, while Jason figures out from the Malakal member names on the paper that Tracy was voted out last night and thus displays mental abilities I didn't know he had. Eliza tells us what we just saw, and then Jason wonders who on their tribe will get the immunity.
That's our cue to go to Malakal, where Amanda reads the clue that says today's challenge will involve balancing and that the winning team probably gets food and no tribal council. They wonder who to choose to sit out. "Whoever's their best balancer," Ami says. That would be the guy who coaches gymnastics, right? Right? Meanwhile, Erik hopes against hope that he'll be the one picked by Airai because immunity is his only chance to stay in the game right now. Well, Erik, I guess that's what happens when you let the "Fans" get picked off, one by one, without doing anything to stop it, and you yourself are also a "Fan."
Probst is disappointed that his announcement that Tracy was voted out last night isn't met with much surprise, since even Jason figured that out already from the clue. Cirie smirks at Airai, and Eliza rolls her eyes. Not sure if one thing lead to the other or it was just the editing, but who cares? It made Eliza look badass. Probst explains the immunity rules once more: each team has selected a member of the other tribe to sit out and go to Exile Island. If that person's team loses the challenge, the Exilee will have immunity at tonight's (and only tonight's, like anyone thought he was going to get super-permanent immunity or something. On second thought, that's probably exactly what Jason thought) tribal council. Probst collects the selections, and we see that Airai chose Ozzy, much to Erik's chagrin, and Malakal selected James, then crossed his name out and wrote "NO JAMES" and changed it to Alexis. All of Airai is like, "huh?" Alexis is probably more shocked than anyone, as she actually reacts with a facial expression if not words. Ami non-explains to a curious Probst that they thought the challenge was about balancing and Alexis "seemed" like she'd be good at that. Um. Okay, I know the players can't see the little writing that accompanies Jason's name that says "Gymnastics Coach," but surely, one of them must know that he's a gymnast, right? Erik? Hello? Alexis just makes an "oookay, whatever" face that I like. Maybe she'll be really cool once she starts talking and stuff.
