Reynold Toepfer & Andrea Boehlke Both Voted Off "Survivor 26: Caramoan Fans Vs. Favorites"

On tonight's "Survivor 26: Caramoan" both Reynold Toepfer and Andrea Boehlke were voted off the show. The episode began with the castaways surprised by the news that instead of a Reward challenge, there would be two Immunity challenges this week. When they met up with Jeff for the first Immunity challenge, he informed them that the winner would also receive a special note. The challenge consisted of balancing on a platform that was floating on the water. Jeff periodically offered food to the castaways as temptations to jump off the platform. The challenge ended up being between Brenda and Andrea, who stood on the platform for over four hours. They even added their own rule to the game, as they decided to stand on only one leg to make the challenge harder. They also agreed that whoever won immunity would also share the note with the other person. That ended up benefiting Brenda, as she quickly fell off the platform, awarding the immunity to Andrea. Back at camp, Andrea and Brenda opened up the note, which ended up being the same clue to the hidden immunity idol that Malcolm bought last week. They decided to share the clue with their entire alliance and everyone went looking for the idol. Erik ended up finding the idol and stupidly handed it right over to Andrea. The castaways also debated whether or not it was time to blindside one of their own, with Andrea pushing hard to turn on Brenda. However, at tribal council, the alliance of six decided to play it safe and voted out Reynold instead. The next day, the final seven castaways competed in the second Immunity challenge. The task consisted of maneuvering a buoy through a rope maze, untying a series of knots and assembling a ladder using puzzle pieces. Erik dominated the challenge and easily won his first individual immunity. Back at camp, Andrea again pushed for Brenda to go but Cochran wasn't too keen on the idea. He told Brenda and Dawn what Andrea was up to and they decided it was time to blindside Andrea. They approached Sherri and Erik with the plan, and they too thought it was a good move. At tribal council, Andrea was flabbergasted when she found out her alliance had turned on her. She ended up heading to the jury with the hidden immunity idol still in her pocket.
