Koror wins immunity in the "Hold the Tank" challenge of Survivor Philippines Palau.

On Day 20 of Survivor Philippines Palau, the castaways deal with a physical challenge and powertripping from each other.

At the Airai Camp, Mika complimented Charles about his noticeable good performance during the previous reward challenge. The ‘raketista' from Dagupan City, she said, deserves to be part of the merged tribes.

It also seemed that Charles has already positioned himself on a solid alliance with the sexy chef.

"Kasi totally may tiwala ako kay Mika. Mabait si Mika, magaling makisama," Charles explained.

"Si Charles even though, technically sa buong tribo namin siya yung weak, ang ganda ng attitude niya na like ‘kahit ano, kaya kong gawin', at saka binibigay niya talaga lahat ng kaya niyang ibigay sa challenge, so for me, even if you're weak, you're more deserving," Mika said.

While Mika was showering Charles with praises, she was expressing her disappointment with Tara.

"Kasi, I'll tell you the truth, sobrang na-disappoint talaga ako. I know she really wanted to try her best. Okay lang na siya iyong bumalik kasi akala ko ‘pag second time kaya niya na ‘yun e. Pero kung alam niya na na hindi niya kaya, sana either ikaw or si Kuya Cris na lang ang bumalik," Mika told Charles.

Before going to their next location, the Airai tribe took their meal first. Charles led a special prayer for their tribe.

Charles: "Lord God, thank you for this blessing. Thank you for the food. Give us strength, endurance for this after, for our challenge, immunity challenge. Ibibigay namin lahat ng best namin Lord. Kami ang mananalo ngayon Lord. Sobra na po. Tama na. Go lang po kami ng go sa lahat ng challenge na ibibigay po ng Survivor, ang bawat isa sa amin. Lalaban po kami. Thank you po sa lahat. In Jesus name, Amen."

FIRST LOVER'S QUARREL.
At the Koror Camp, meanwhile, Jef was still holding grudge after receiving the "poor me" remark from Marvin. As she had a chat with Echo, she explained her side of the story.

Jef : "Maayos ako kasi ganito talaga ako pinalaki, fair lady, anong magagawa ko?"

Echo : "So that only means that you're not ‘poor me'?"

Jef : "I'm not ‘poor me.'"

Echo : "Si loveteam o."

Jef : "LQ , first LQ ito. Wala ang ibig sabihin lang nun hindi talaga ako puwede sa bata , baka maloka ako masisira ang ulo ko araw-araw. Iyung sweet face ko tuloy nagmamaldita panget."

Later, Jef tried to give Marvin a cold shoulder when the ‘ultimate crush' offered to give her a hand while trying to unhusk a coconut. Oblivious to Jef's grudge, Marvin expressed that he just wanted to teach Jef while doing chores.

"Of course I care kay Jef kung nasaktan siya especially sa mga bagay na ganun kasi may itak saka malaking risk ‘pag may mali ka ng kaunti," Marvin said.

"Kasi ‘di ba galit na galit ako kay Marvin, buti na lang ‘di ko pinagpalit bf ko sa kanya habang di pa too late," Jef said.

After accomplishing the task of unhusking the coconut, Jef celebrated her first ‘butbot.'

Later, Tara and Jef picked the tree mail message for their respective tribe.

"Ang tubig ay buhay.

Kaligtasan mo'y dito nakasalalay.

Kapag ika'y kinapos at ito'y nabuhos,

tiyak na kawawa kang lubos."

SPLIT SECOND LOSS. Survivor Philippines Palau host Paolo Bediones welcomed the castaways to the site of the challenge. He greeted Airai by saying, "Ayokong makita ko ang araw na isa na lang ang natitira sa inyo."

He then explained the mechanics of the game.

The game required four members of each team. At Paolo's signal, the teams must carry a heavy box. Attached at the top of the box are three cork plugs that Paolo would pull every two minutes. Once the plugs are pulled, water would flow into the box that would make it even heavier. When the team is no longer able to carry the box, a cork would fall to a certain level. Once the center-cork is pulled, it means that the team loses the challenge.

Amanda and Jef of Team Koror sat out for the challenge.

The game began. Green water flows out of the Koror Tank, while orange water flows from the Airai tank, filling up their boxes.

"Pagkatapos ng 30 seconds makakaramdam na kayo ng bigat ng tubig. Napakahalaga ng position ng inyong mga paa, napakahalaga ng position ng inyong mga kamay. Pwedeng i-adjust habang bumibigat. Pwede ninyong buhatin para sa inyong mga kakampi kung kinakailangan," Paolo explained.

After a minute, Team Koror was struggling with their position. Their box was slightly tilted. On the other hand, Airai was going strong.

Paolo announced that after two minutes, he would release one of the ropes that would enable more water to flow from the tank.

Team Airai made minor adjustments in their position not knowing that it accelerated the cork's release. The team got the shock of their lives after Paolo announced, "Ang cork ay natanggal na. Koror wins immunity!"

Cris explained that it appeared that they were not actually lifting the box and its imbalance or tilt that got lower and lower, caused the cork to become loose.

Paolo then instructed Team Koror to pick a member of the Airai tribe to receive the immunity bracelet. After the team's deliberation, Marvin handed the bracelet to Tara who was thankful for receiving it.

Tara was surprised when she was given the immunity bracelet, but she believed that she is deserving of it. Jef, meanwhile said that they thought Tara causes the most stress to her team, the reason they picked her to receive the bracelet. Mika was just utterly disappointed.

"Hindi ko alam kung ano ang tawag sa feeling na iyon, naiinis ako. Iyong reaksyon niya. Biglang lumaki ang ulo niya. Kung ako ang tatanungin mo right now, siya iyong talaga ang weakest," Mika said.

TARA'S TIRADE. Back at the camp, Charles and Tara were discussing whom they should vote off. Tara was trying to convince Charles to kick Mika out.

Tara : "Si Mika ivo-vote out natin. Wala akong choice. Ewan ko kasi, ‘di ko s'ya naiintindihan masyado e. Like palipat-lipat. Pinag-isapan kong mabuti. Una kong pinuntirya si Kuya Cris pero sa nakikita ko mas mahihirapan akong ihandle si Mika...alam mo si Kuya Cris s'ya yung tipo ng taong ‘di sinisisi yung taong weakest so like me. Like you have to know what happened, ako ‘yung medyo may kasalanan."

Charles: "Pero silang dalawa ako iboboto nila."

Tara : "Oo nga. Kaya nga ikaw ang tutulungan ko e."

Charles: "Kung ako sa`yo si Tatay Cris kasi si Mika pwede mong kunin."

Tara continued coercing Charles to vote Mika off. Charles, on the other hand, knew that Tara could not persuade Cris to vote against Mika and advised her not to even approach the former pro-basketball player.

Charles: "Pero kung ako sa`yo ‘wag mo na`tong kausapin. Maniwala ka sa'kin. Hindi na magbabago isip nila, sa pagkakakilala ko kay Kuya Cris."

Tara : "Maniwala ka rin sa `kin. Ako bahala. Basta iyan ang sabi ko sumunod ka na lang muna. Ako nang bahalang kumausap sa kanya."

Charles also told Tara not to approach Mika and let him do the talking. But it appears that Tara had something else in mind.

Tara : "It's a thing na tayong apat dito naisip ko kanina kung sino ang dapat tanggalin. Feeling ko na ako yung tatanggalin n'yong tatlo kasi need two boys e. One girl should be left! Ganun iyon e, so ngayon I have to think. Kasi binigay sa kin ‘yung immunity like Oh my God...thank God I cried."

Mika : "So ako, iyong tatanggalin mo?"

Tara : "Hindi. Naka-mindset na'ko kanina. Na ako iyong tatanggalin. One girl iyong tatanggalin."

Mika : "So kung iyon nga ang iniisip mo na ganun na rin , so ako iyong ivo-vote mo."

Tara : "'Di ko alam. ‘Di pa nga ko nakakapagdecide e. ‘Yun iyong iniisip ko kanina."

Mika : "Pero at this point, girl or boy, it doesn't have to do with physical strength. Nakita mo sa mga challenges? That`s not like winning at the moment."

Tara : "Iyung thing na alam ko kung sino yung mas may silbi dito sa camp. Kasi alam kong mas matanda ka sa `kin. What you say I just follow better rather than iano ko yung ideas mo. Basehan mo lang everytime we talk to each other, never akong nag-impose sa`yo na you're wrong."

Cris leaves the shelter. Out of nowhere, Tara went on with her tirade, telling Mika how she felt useless in the camp. Mika was already teary-eyed and eventually decided to just simply leave.

Tara : "I want to do the fire. You were the one like alam mo na `yun. So ikaw na lang yung gumagawa and all everything."

Mika : "But you never asked me like na gusto mong gawin."

Tara : "Ang point ko lang na ikaw yung parang mas magaling dyan. Nastart mo siya, mas napractice mo s'ya, so ikaw yung gumagawa ng ganun. Ako lang iyong parang walang silbi, ako lang ‘yung naga-assist and everything. Even though I can do things like but I can`t do it kasi nandyan ka, simple!"

After their conversation, Mika was seen crying. Tara then focused her outburst to Charles.

"Naiinis ako na nagpo-powertrip na parang pwede niya lahat kaming pagsabihan or something. Parang sino ka? Like who are you to talk to me that way just because you have a f****ing immunity bracelet!" Mika stressed.

Soon after, Charles followed Mika. Mika was already struggling to keep her cool. Charles eventually got emotional as well.

Mika : "Ayaw ko nang makinig kaya pumunta na lang ako dito."

Charles: "Pero sa`kin, okay lang bang makinig ka sa`kin?"

Mika : "Yeah."

Charles: "Kanina ‘di ba sabi ko..."

Mika : "It`s just parang unfair na sinasabi nya na everything`s my fault, na parang wala syang silbi dito sa camp kasi ako yung gumagawa ng fire. F**k! Kung gusto mong gawin, why don`t you f****ng do it then, you know? ‘Di ko naman sinasabing ako na lang. Kasi sinasabi naman niya sa'kin na o Maiks ikaw gumawa nito. It`s just unfair."

Charles: "Pero alam mo kanina hindi ikaw iyung naisip kong iboboto, si Tatay ang naisip ko. Kahit na sabihin mo kay Tatay pero sana ‘wag mo na lang sabihin."

Continue reading below ↓

Mika : "Thanks for being honest with me."

Charles: "Promise hindi pumasok sa isip ko na ikaw ang iboto ko kanina. Masakit sa`kin pero talagang, ‘di ko rin kayang, ‘di sa nag-aacting ako o nagda-drama. Wala na kong pakialam anong sabihin nila. Ikaw, kung ako ang iboboto mo, tatanggapin ko pero kung hindi salamat pa rin. I want to stay here."

Mika : "Pero sinabi ko din kay Tara kung wala sa kanya iyong immunity siya rin ‘yung iboboto ko."

Charles: "Sana ‘di mo na lang sinabi. "

Mika : "Yeah I know. But I wanted to be honest. Like tingnan mo ngayon meron siyang immunity biglang, Wow! powertrip ‘di ba?"

Charles: "Pero ‘di mo na mababago siya na binigyan e."

Mika : "I know, sobrang nagkamali yung kabila."

Charles: "Ikaw na lang ang magdesisyon sa sarili mo. Dalawa lang ang pagpipilian mo. Dalawang C. Cr ba o Ch ang umpisa?"
