The Brains Have It
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

The Brains tribe finally ditched J'Tia! They return from Tribal Council and Spencer thanks Kass and Tasha for keeping him. He doesn't know how they made their decision, but it was kind of intense to watch them do it during Tribal Council. Kass is sure that if they kept J'Tia, they'd just be back in three days voting her out, so might as well save some time. Kass interviews that she knew they would lose the next challenge if they kept J'Tia, and Spencer's been killing it in challenges. Kass avoids calling their tribe "shit for brains" but barely, and she does call them "a rolling logjam mess with a couple of nerds on top." Spencer adds that they could be the final three, since there are only two entire tribes in the way. They all laugh, but he could be right!

Tasha gets Treemail the next morning, and they discover that it's a food reward. Spencer vows that this will be the start of their comeback. They head off down the beach.

All three tribes converge and Probst tells them to drop their buffs, because they're going to be resorted into two tribes. Sarah interviews that she's devastated because she just started to figure out whom to trust in her own tribe. Probst walks around with a bowl filled with buffs wrapped up in canvas. It does seem pretty random; I know in past seasons, there have been allegations that production influenced the tribal mix-ups. I never gave much credence to them, but some did. This time, though, I don't see how it could have been fixed unless there was some next-level David Blaine shit involved.

They all unwrap their buffs and then move to form their new tribes. The entire Brain tribe is still together, and the entire Brawn tribe is still together except for Sarah. Shit, Sarah's screwed. Anyway, the new Aparri (Orange) tribe is Sarah, Spencer, Morgan, Kass, Tasha, Jeremiah and Alexis. The new Solana (Purple) tribe is Woo, Cliff, Trish, Jefra, LJ, Lindsey and Tony. So basically, the Brains tribe stayed together entirely, the Brawn tribe stayed together minus Sarah, and the Beauty tribe got split in half. Sarah admits that she feels like her whole tribe walked away from her and Tasha says she's excited about how strong their tribe feels. Jefra is happy to be with the strong people and hopes she and LJ can find a way to fit in, while Cliff admits that this will shift people's strategies and alliances.

Probst is ready to start the challenge. One person will grab onto a pole while two people from the opposing tribe try to grab the person and drag him or her across a finish line. It will be best of three attempts. The winning tribe gets a bunch of pastries and sweet treats.
