On tonight's "Survivor 26: Caramoan" 44 year old event planner Michael Snow became the ninth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with Phillip officially making Sherri a member of the Stealth R Us alliance and naming her "Tenacity". At the Reward challenge the team of Reynold, Eddie, Cochran, Michael and Erik won the game and were awarded the ability to rappel down a waterfall and enjoy a picnic lunch. During the lunch Reynold pitched the idea of an all-male alliance to Cochran, but he wasn't having any of it. Back at camp, a desperate Malcolm approached Sherri and Dawn about flipping on their alliance and joining himself, Eddie and Reynold. Not only did the girls not take Malcolm up on his offer, but they made a plan to blindside him at the next tribal council as well. At the Immunity challenge Brenda was able to stay underwater longer than all the other tribemates and she took home immunity. Later, Dawn continued to play Malcolm by asking to see Reynold's hidden immunity idol as proof that they were being truthful with her. Reynold did show Dawn the idol, but said he planned on using it if he felt he needed to. Meanwhile, Eddie told Andrea that her name was being thrown around as a possibility to be voted out. This didn't sit well with Andrea, who contemplated scrapping the original plan to blindside Malcolm and instead vote out Michael. At tribal council Phillip stated that anybody who is disloyal to his alliance would get voted out. After the votes were cast Jeff asked if anyone wanted to play a hidden immunity idol and Reynold stood up. However, Malcolm stopped him and said that because of Phillip's statement it was obvious that the Stealth R Us alliance had voted him out. Reynold gave Malcolm his idol and Malcolm played it right then and there. It was all for naught though, as the alliance had given in to Andrea's wishes and voted out Michael instead. By a vote of 7-3 Michael was eliminated and became the first member of the jury.
