Tyson talks to Debbie. He says J.T. is an honest straight-shooter and the new alliance is them, Douche, J.T. and Stephen. Debbie's fine with that because she must know that it's ridiculous that she's even still in this game. Brendan walks up, and Tyson asks if they're taking Joe out tonight. Brendan says yes. Debbie agrees. With that, Tyson and Debbie pretend to go hunting for more firewood. Tyson interviews that he totally pulled the wool over Brendan's eyes and he's proud of it, especially since Brendan is supposed to be all good at business and stuff. "I can mold this game however I want right now," Tyson says. Ugh.
Joe and Erinn go off to scheme. Joe says he found the immunity idol back at his camp, and Erinn apparently didn't even bother to look for hers yet, as that's what they're doing now. They walk up to treemail, and Joe looks up its asshole to find nothing. Way to be less smart than Taj and not even bother to fake one, Brendan. Is he even playing this game anymore? Does he really think the rest of the tribe is that stupid and that loathe to plot behind his back that they haven't even considered that he has the idol and getting rid of him because of that? Moron! Erinn interviews that it was obvious that something used to be in the "pocket" of the treemail, and since it's gone now, either Brendan or Sierra must have it. Erinn's solution is to vote them both out, as she, too, is completely clueless about the fact that her old tribe hates her and wants her out as soon as possible as well. "Then we can actually play the game for real," she says. Funny how she didn't think playing with an immunity idol was fake before she realized that she didn't have access to one.
Immunity challenge time! The tribe arrives, and Probst looks to J.T. to tell him the name of the new tribe because Probst loves J.T. Once Probst gets a lesson in fake Portuguese, he takes the immunity idol back and reveals the new immunity necklace. It's much less stupid than in previous seasons. With all those feathers around it, it's almost pretty. Probst calls it "bea-yoo-tiful," which is taking things a little far, and Sierra smiles as if she'll ever win it. Probst explains today's challenge: there are ten square poles with notches cut in them. Each player must wrap himself around the pole and hold on for as long as possible. Last man or woman left on the pole wins. Yes, it's another one of those ten-second "endurance" challenges.
