The Equivalent of a Nuke is the eighth episode of Survivor: Azerbaijan.
Previously On Survivor
Jake N. was in deep trouble. He was the only other vote to keep Minke and despite his best efforts, Felix didn't believe Jake's lies. During the auction, Austin got the Dark Pearl, effectively giving him an extra vote at the next Tribal Council he went to. Once again, Baku lost and Joseph exiled Jared, sparing him from Tribal. Jake N. found a fake idol and used it at Tribal. However, he got two votes, ending his second chance. 13 are left, who will be voted out tonight?
Immunity Challenge: Survivor Scavenger Hunt
The three tribes are given a list of 25 items related to Survivor and the Survivor ORG. They have to submit one list that will be judged by three people within the community. The tribe with the highest score wins immunity.
At all three tribes, they received treemail that they would be living together for the last twenty days of the game. Some people like Ella felt they were merging while others like Nifty thought it was a fake merge. The 'Five Guys' alliance, Ella, Felix, and Bryce reunited and Bryce informed Austin that he had gotten the Rings of Duality at the auction, giving him a second vote at Tribal. After reuniting with his alliance, Austin felt that the Dark Pearl would no longer be a problem as he had the majority for the 'merge.' Ella also felt safe as she thought everyone was on her side, but was still mad since she has never found the idol, despite looking for it since Day 1. Jared felt like he was in a decent spot as he was back with his original Khizi alliance with Ella and Jessica and was close to Felix, Jake, Rob, and Nick. However, Jared had a quick dislike of Clifford, as he thought Clifford was trying to hard to be funny. When Nifty was reunited with Rob, he was less than thrilled as he felt Rob wasn't playing a good game for taking out his ally Tom and wanted him to be targeted first. Ella was also annoyed by Austin, as Austin wouldn't let her speak. Bryce's apparent bossiness also annoyed Jared.
At the immunity challenge, the players learned there was no merge and that two tribes would be going to Tribal. Sheki won the challenge, sending Baku and Khizi to Tribal.
Jessica, Jake, and Rob agreed to split the votes between Clifford and Joseph. However, Rob felt uncomfortable going into Tribal and considered playing his idol. Joseph and Clifford, who had two idols, agreed to play both idols on themselves and split the votes between Jake and Rob, with the plan to vote out Rob on the revote. Jared was sure he was playing his idol as he knew Felix and Bryce would not turn on each other. Austin ranted to Nifty about how Hunter called him arrogant. However, more drama would follow as Nick leaked the 'Five Guys' alliance to Rob to exact his revenge on Austin and Clifford. Once it got back to Clifford, he informed Joseph, Nifty and Austin, who began to insult Nick. They also told Ella that Nick told Hunter their plan to vote him out, causing Ella to join in on insulting Nick. Khizi and Baku then left for Tribal Council.
At Khizi's Tribal, Clifford played his idols on himself and Joseph. Rob also played his idol on himself, sending Jake R. home with a single vote.
At Baku's Tribal, Bryce played his Rings of Duality so Jared had three votes against him. However, Jared played his idol. This caused Bryce to be the third returnee to be voted out, also with a single vote.
