Player notes:

  • Dawn considers flipping
  • Jim considers a plan where he tries to convince 2 additional votes against Cochran and gives the Immunity Necklace to Ozzy

  • When asked, Cochran told Coach he would prefer, on a personal level, if Jim were next to be voted out
  • During the second Immunity Challenge, Dawn talks openly about trying to stay in the challenge as long as possible to allow the former Upolu members to continue to eat…Brandon and Coach show gratitude but Albert later says they were too nice to her
  • Albert seems to be the only one to notice Dawn successfully integrating herself into old Upolu; tries to sell Sophie on voting Dawn over Jim
  • Brandon feels old Savaii is only being nice to try and win favor

Other notes:

  • Two Tribal Councils; the first occurred on night 22, the second on night 24
  • Dawn and Whitney joined in the vote against Ozzy
