Tonight the tribes were told to drop their buffs (and, with the way things were going for Brawns and Brains, it’s about time). The teams shuffled around, but differently than they expected with Caleb’s sudden departure, there were 6 blue, 6 yellow and 1 red, meaning whoever drew that buff would have to return to Brawn beach and fend for themselves. They would not have to participate in the immunity challenge (since nobody can vote them out) and they will then join whatever tribe loses someone at tribal council. I mean A+ drama element from the producers on what would have been a last minute decision. Love. It.
The teams were split into yellow, blue, and the singular red player - Julia. (The girls Beauty alliance, probably the strongest in the game, was split a solid three ways).
Sidenote: Tai and Scot are hilarious together based on their sizes.
While the two new tribes got to know each other, Julia struggled on her own (she’s only 18!!).
The immunity challenge was crazy close all the way through - this entire season is fairly well balanced.
But in the end the new blue tribe won immunity, sending the yellow tribe to tribal (meaning Julia will join this tribe next week).
Anna (from the Beauty tribe) was voted out, which was smart, but sad to see another Beauty go.
