Count Your Blessings is the ninth episode of Survivor: Korea.
Challenge: Korean Crosswords
This challenge consists of three crosswords. The first crossword puzzle is about the most basic knowledge about Korea. Altogether, there are 38 questions in it. Castaways will get 1 point for each correct answer. If you submit a fully solved crossword puzzle, you get an additional 5 points. When castaways have completed the puzzle, they can also use the letters in the pink boxes in the next puzzle (which are the same letters and under the exact same number) and they will also get the encrypted versions of the letters in the green boxes which will help them with the third crossword. The second crossword also consists of quite basic knowledge about Korea, although there are more specific and difficult questions in it. It consists of 18 questions. When castaways have completed the previous crossword, they will already know what the letters in the pink boxes are. With this puzzle, they also get 1 point for each correct answer and 5 additional points if you manage to complete the whole puzzle. When they complete the puzzle, they'll also get the encrypted versions of the letters in the green boxes, which they'll need to complete the third crossword. The hardest of the three, the third crossword is entirely encrypted. Besides the symbols that represent the letters it is a classical word search puzzle. For starters they have already been given five decrypted letters. To get additional decrypted letters, you need to solve the other two previous crosswords. After castaways have managed to decrypt the letters of the puzzle, their final task is to find the names of Korean cities that have been put into the puzzle. Thy get 3 points for each correctly located name and an additional 10 points if you manage to complete this puzzle. The top scorers of the two tribes will get Individual Immunity and will be safe from Tribal Council. In addition, the tribe that scores the most (total tribe score) will also win reward.
Reward: The right to view the Tribal Council of the other tribe
Winners: Aaron & Ben (Immunity); Goguryeo (Reward)
|“||My vote is for Hunter. He is a big threat when the merge comes and tonight will be his last HAZA! I also played the Mask on Ivan to flush his idol. Hopefully, if all goes as planned. I will be safe. But I still have to hope that Aaron and Amir are true to the alliance. And from what I heard, another big "threat" is leaving tonight, but why would I spoil it? If Amir and Aaron cross me I will look like the biggest f*ckin Idiot in Korea. But, I dunno. I still have an uneasy feeling. But let's hope Hunter and the other "threat" goes. One thing is for sure, I am not Hunter's Puppet. I am...PINOCCHIO!!!||”|
|“||Monkey I am sorry. I have to vote you now. There is nothing I can do and there is no point in starting an investigation in the alliance. I am in a power position in the game. Voting Ivan would do nothing while at the same cause issues with the alliance. I'm sorry it had to end this way. We could have gone far.||”|
|“||Congratulations on doing your part to make me feel paranoid and guilty in every trick in the book. I want to be your friend but I don't want to play this game with you anymore.||”|
|“||This is a crazy tribal! But I'm sticking to my true allies. I don't know what's gonna happen next after this.||”|
|“||I hate this game -_-||”|
|“||Monkey, you're time here is long overdated. You've been a target since Day 1, and tonight, It has to be you. You sealed your fate by not even attempting the immunity challenge, which guarantees you're leaving.||”|
|“||If we end up drawing purple rocks because we couldn't agree on voting Monkey off, then things are seriously messed up. I told myself sometimes the easiest decisions for me can be the hardest for others, but this is ridiculous. I expect a minimum of 3 votes going your way dude. It's impressive you forced this revote, but not impressive enough....||”|
|“||I tried to save you, but our move turned out to be an epic fail.||”|
|“||Monkey, you know I hate doing this. This is a vote I never thought I'd cast. But seriously, you made yourself such a big target, and then screwed with not using the rings, you can't expect me to put my trust in a rock and risk myself because of YOUR mistakes. I hope you make it to the Jury though, so you won't feel like you didn't have the chance for a payback.||”|
|“||Even though I lasted 25 days. I am proud. I hope the stuff I did will be known. And my alliance wasn't just playing me. I wish them good luck. And I like the way I fought like hell when I was going down. I didn't give up. Of my alliance, I see 2 people playing the game, 1 in the middle, and 1 floater. But we shall see. 25 days and a Jury Member. Not bad. BUT I SHOULD'VE PLAYED THESE STUPID RINGS. UGH. DUMBEST MOVE EVER.||”|

| VOTED OFF:|
|“||Well, I had no time to vote or discuss today. Here's hoping it's you and not me. Cheers.||”|
|“||Miggy you voted me last week and now it is time for you to go.||”|
|“||First time for bad challenge skills, Second time for to much confidence, And third for Sweet revenge!||”|
|“||I feel awful voting someone out right before the merge but I've got to do what's best for me. It's going to come as a shock to you that you weren't in control like you thought but I did try to hint to you that Alejandro couldn't be trusted. Thank you for revealing a lot of information about Goguryeo to me and sorry that we couldn't work together. If it's any consolation I saved you over Jake.||”|
|“||Cutting the head of another dragon.||”|
|“||Dear Eddie, how dare you call this season 'the worst season ever'. This is a damn awesome season, but if you can't appreciate it. Then you don't deserve to be here. Count your blessings, you only survived tribal council because Samiah needed to go, Nick was disqualified and because Jake is a bigger threat than you. You're a cool guy, but you don't deserve to make it to the merge if you don't like the season you're competing in.||”|
|“||Wow...I just dont get it...what a b**** move...what did I even do to deserve this...I voted a lot...like...I don't get it.||”|

- As the Jury Phase started during this episode, it means that the Jury Phase would have 4 tribe members each from the original tribes still in the game. Also, the Merge Phase have 3 representative from the original Goguryeo and Silla tribes each, with original Baekje having 4.
- In Goguryeo's Tribal Council, Monkey used his Mask of Restrict against Ivan. However, Ivan also used his Rings of Duality. This made both Artifacts useless and therefore Ivan voted normally.
