Yam Yam decides to go against Carolyn on Survivor

Tonight's episode of Survivor saw the cast members returning to camp and reeling from the previous week's elimination. Carolyn and the castaways realized that even if she didn't play her immunity idol on Carson, he would have been safe. However, she felt that it was a good move to keep the Tika number strong.

The official synopsis of the episode, titled I'm The Bandit, reads:

"Castaways must get the ball rolling in the right direction at the reward challenge to win a relaxing evening at the sanctuary; with only six castaways left, it is an emotional struggle to decide which castaway will be going home."

Carolyn, however, decided to share her entire gameplan with her Survivor castaways. In a confessional, Yam Yam expressed that it was a bad game move to let everyone know of your plan and could potentially made Carolyn a target for elimination. Jamie also confessed to the latter being a calculative player.

The following morning, they began to search for an immunity idol and also talk game. Lauren, Jaime, Carson, and Yam Yam began to plan a strategy when Lauren expressed her interest to vote out Carolyn. While Carson seemed to agree with her, he wanted to vote either Lauren or Jamie out of the game.

For the reward challenge on Survivor, the contestants were divided into two teams of three. One of each team member were strapped to a ball and had to cross through obstacles with the help of their teammates. The orange team with Carson, Yam Yam, and Lauren won the challenge, and earned a good meal and a foot massage at the sanctuary.

At the sanctuary, Yam Yam thought of voting out his ally Carolyn, while Carson wanted Lauren or Jamie out. The latter wanted Carson out and tried to convince Carolyn to vote him out, but she wanted his ally for one more vote. Carolyn further felt that Lauren should be going home this week.

After Carson, Lauren, and Yam Yam returned from the Survivor sanctuary, Carolyn pulled Carson aside to warn him that his name was being thrown off as a target for elimination. Meanwhile, Yam Yam told Jamie that Carolyn was the biggest threat in the game and should be voted out.

Yam Yam felt that it was time he operated out of the Tika alliance, which meant going against longtime allies Carson and Carolyn, and voting the latter out for his benefits.
