Just for the Sake of Using It is the penultimate episode of Survivor: Papua New Guinea.
Reward/Immunity Challenge: Dupligon Duel
The castaways are to play a game called Dupligon. They are to submit their highest scores, which will appear as a percentage between 1-100. The castaway to get the highest score wins immunity.
Reward: To exile one person to Exile Island.
Luke immediately went to Andrei and Blake and told them that Mick flipped and voted with Uli and Billy at the last Tribal Council. Luke, not knowing that Billy flipped, was angry at Mick, thinking Mick voted Uli after claiming to be voting Andrei.
Mick and Luke devised a plan to ensure that Andrei lost the upcoming Immunity challenge. They would ask him what his score was, and claim that it was too high to be beaten. Then they would surpass it.
In the challenge, Andrei felt that the simplicity would make it easy for others to win. Luke and Mick went to figure out what Andrei's score was, and told Andrei fake low scores that they received, in an attempt to make Andrei believe that he could easily win.
Luke told Andrei that he gave up and sent in a low score, allowing Andrei to tell Luke his real score. Luke then told this to Mick, allowing Mick to score even higher and win Immunity.
For the last exile, Mick sent Luke to Exile Island.
With Mick immune, he decided that he'd play the idol on Billy to ensure that Andrei left. He then told Luke this plan.
Blake went to the Tea Party members and asked who they were voting for. Andrei brought up that Billy was the only alliance outsider, meaning that it would be an obvious vote.
Luke and Mick told Billy to vote for Andrei. Andrei did worry that Mick may give Billy the idol, but felt that Mick would weaken his chances of winning if he did.
At Tribal Council, Mick gave Billy the idol to play. This negated Andrei and Blake's votes, and Andrei was voted out in a 3-0 vote.

|“||You're a great player, but sadly that is the reason why you have to go.||”|
|“||The empire falls with you. No, I'm not your father.||”|
|“||So Mick tells me that he gave his idol to JR. Guess that means that you're the only person I can vote for. I'm hoping it's not me, but it might be.||”|
|“||If this vote goes the way I want it to, Mendi will be the first tribe to be decimated, and I couldn't be happier about it.||”|
|“|| By the way,,,if I get the idol haha,,,
I will use it,,,
|“|| Well this is it... The writing was on the wall, and there wasn't really anything I could do to dodge this bullet. Mick was dead set on saving someone he perceived to be a goat and had to get rid of me, which I understand, but he made me feel extremely shitty about myself for sending him to Exile and for that reason, he lost any shot at my vote. I have major self-esteem issues, and I just don't wanna be someone's Survivor doormat.
JR's words at TC really annoyed me a lot. He lost my respect at that endurance challenge where we had to upload images... And not so much because he used the images I uploaded, but because he was having a smug "I outsmarted you" attitude about it and it really pissed me off right there, and what he said at TC was still along those lines.
I've grown really close to Mick, Blake and LP, especially LP, so I wish them a lot of success in this game... Even to Mick, although I want no part in his success.
I'm happy I won so many immunities, I wanted to prove myself that I could accomplish something in this game, but it makes it really bittersweet to know I had people rooting for me and maybe, just maybe had a shot at winning, and didn't. I just feel defeated, and not so much because I was outplayed, but because I wasn't able to pull through. I let myself down.
Still in the Running
