Survivor: Ghost Island continued last night with a cunning idol bluff, a tribal showdown, and the elimination of the fourth castaway. Things looked bleak for the former Malolos on the new Malolo tribe, outnumbered 5-4 against the ex-Navitis, but Michael had an idea to change their fortune. Using James Clement’s cursed idol from Survivor: China, the undercover 18-year-old tried to bluff that the relic now contained the power to save not one but TWO players.
