Notes: The editing of the RC/IC was... a little bizarre. Boran leads throughout the challenge, until Samburu gains a split-second advantage lighting the last fire, and then suddenly Samburu is moving twice as fast as Boran, and wins easily, over the final 50 yards or so. We see Diane collapse after the IC is over, but it seems pretty clear from Probst's comments (and the charity clap Samburu offers as Lex and Clarence carry Diane off the course) that Diane collapsed in the challenge itself. Why wasn't this shown? Did they just not have the footage? And why was Ethan--who, spoiler alert, wins the game--shown falling more than a... well, a professional soccer player? Obviously, the outcome is the outcome, but it's a bit strange that it seemingly came out of nowhere.
- Diane received 6 votes, from Ethan, Kim J., Lex, Kelly, Clarence, and Jessie (voted out, 6-2).
- Clarence received 2 votes, from Big Tom and Diane.
