Ashley, meanwhile, says that she and Natalie are close allies, but Natalie trusts and relies on Rob much more than Ashley does, because Ashley realizes that Rob is playing a game and he wants to win it. And she thinks he would get rid of one of the girls before Grant to do that. So she thinks her best bet is to start actually playing this game and trying to make a "big move." That night, she and Natalie talk to Rob about how it might be a good idea to vote Grant out soon so he'll go to Redemption and hopefully be the one person to come back in the game instead of someone like Mike who will steal all the jury votes. Rob asks if Ashley would rather vote Grant out than Phillip, and Ashley says of course not, but voting Grant out now before Phillip might be the smartest move for the three of them. Rob says he'll consider it, then interviews that Ashley came to him with a "genius plan." I think he's being sarcastic, though, because he then says that it doesn't make sense to vote Grant out unless Ashley is trying to throw Grant under the bus to keep herself in the game that much longer. Of course, Rob runs off and tells Grant all about Ashley's plan. Grant says Ashley is a snake and cannot be trusted, like he wasn't plotting against her for the exact same reason: to put himself higher up on the totem pole. Grant and Rob say they have to win every immunity challenge from now on because it is crucial that Ashley can be voted out. "Ashley's a dark individual," Grant interviews, so quickly and easily on board Rob's Evil Ashley train. He says if she doesn't win immunity then she's going home next, and he'll be happy to vote her out.
Day 35. The women hang out in the shelter and giggle while the men fetch the treemail and bump fists so that Phillip will feel special and included. Grant interviews that "Stealth R Us" (yes, he's actually using that name now) will probably stay together and be the Final Three, which he wouldn't have believed possible back on Day 19. I still don't think it's possible on Day 35, but we'll see. Grant gets the treemail as Rob interviews that after Ashley told him she wanted Grant out next, he's decided that her 35-day-long "free ride" is going to end. The men return to camp with the treemail and Rob reads something about being sick and picking bones. Sounds gross to me. The men walk away, and Ashley mutters to Natalie that she thinks she has to win today's challenge or else she'll be voted out next. Natalie says no way, and Ashley lies back down to sleep. Ashley interviews that Rob seemed to go along with her and Natalie's plan (yes, she thinks that Natalie had something to do with her plan) to vote Grant out next, but if he wins immunity today, Ashley thinks she'll be voted out instead. She does have full faith and confidence in Natalie, and thinks that if she hears anything about Ashley being voted out, she'll be sure to tell her.
