After an hour has elapsed, Andrea decides to try to stretch her leg as well. Probst takes note of this, and Matt stops paying attention long enough for God to knock his vase over. This is his first time losing a Redemption Island challenge, and Probst makes sure to rub it in. "And with that, Matt is out of this challenge and out of this game. After 36 days in the game, you survived 10 duels but fell short when you needed it most. Matt is the sixth member of the jury, has no shot at winning," he says as Matt waits and hopes for some lighting to come down and strike his opponents dead. But God has forsaken him, so his time in this game is officially, finally over. With Mike still in the challenge with only Andrea to defeat, Rob has got to be shitting bricks. Both Mike and Andrea struggle and nearly lose their balance a few times. Probst reminds them to stay focused, only for Mike to wipe his face and lose his concentration just enough to drop his vase. Andrea wins the challenge and spot back in the game! I'm kind of pissed because I wanted Mike to win and to go back in the game and win it and ruin Rob's perfect season. But at least I can take some pleasure in seeing that Rob isn't all that happy about seeing Andrea re-enter it, either. Phillip claps seemingly sincerely for her. Everyone else scowls. Matt walks past the Murlonios, and Rob says he did a "hell of a job." I'm sure Matt cares what Rob thinks.
The four Redemption Islanders stand before Probst, who says that Andrea, despite being the "biggest underdog" (not really -- women traditionally do well in endurance challenges and Andrea actually won immunity in one earlier this season) has won her way back in the game. He then has Grant, the first loser, burn his buff and walk out. Grant does, and actually gets a good-bye interview, saying that he might have fallen short of the million dollar prize, but feels like he received plenty of gifts during his time on the show. Aw, he seems like a nice guy. Who smokes a lot of pot. It would have been nice to get to know him beyond his, like, four interviews and the one Tribal Council where he talked about how much he loves his fiancée. I will not miss his nasty dreadlocks, though. Matt is the next to go, and he says he spent 29 of 36 days on Redemption Island but he was never alone. Guess who was with him the entire time? The cameraman! Also God. Matt says he was happy to be a "vessel" for God or whatever. I'm just so happy the God is finally over. Until the Final Tribal, when he'll probably bring it up again because this kid apparently talks about nothing else. Mike is the last to leave. He says he was really hoping to win and get back in the game, but he didn't. Thank you, Mike. As always, you have very little to say. With that, Probst calls the Murlonios down to welcome Andrea back in the game, which Phillip does very sweetly, actually. Every once in a while he acts like a pleasant human being. It's nice. Probst asks Andrea if she feels like she's part of Murlonio now after they blindsided her. Andrea says she doesn't and she'll have to win immunity and work some strategies. But Rob gets the last word, of course, saying that he's not super-worried about Andrea being back in the game because Ashley is his target and the person he's most afraid of going against at the end due to being the only other person trying to play this game.
