News and Notes[edit]

  • Week 1: After winning immunity, the Jacobis were offered $10,000 to give up their immunity. They chose the $10,000, and were subsequently voted off.
  • Week 2: After winning immunity, the Moutras were offered $15,000 to give up their immunity. They rejected the money, and the Bajwas were voted off.
  • Week 3: After winning immunity, the Holmeses were offered $20,000 to give up their immunity. They rejected the money, and the Woodwards were voted off.
  • Week 4: After winning immunity, the Freises were offered $30,000 to give up their immunity. Cody took the money and Dawn was unhappy that they would possibly be voted off. They spent the remainder of the episode scheming and promising both the Holmeses and the Moutras (separately) that they would not vote them off next week in return, if that couple chose to take the immunity challenge money. The Krashins were ultimately voted off, but it is unknown by what margin.
  • Week 5: After winning immunity, the Holmeses were offered nothing to give up their immunity. In fact, they were told that they would be choosing who accompanied them to the final two. The Moutras and the Freises both pleaded their cases separately, but within earshot of each other. At vote-off time, the Holmeses asked to be allowed to inform the couples of their decision themselves. They voted off the Freises.
