6. Tai battles his way to an Individual Immunity win.
Not only was balancing on a narrow perch with arms gripped above and behind your head a very uncomfortable pose for the castaways, but it also proved to be extremely draining—and that's why many were tempted when host Jeff Probst seduced them to drop out with a tray of delicious food and drink. Joe, Michele, Scot, and Jason all let go so they could indulge in the sweet taste of sustenance.
One castaway who didn't give up was Tai, who said the reason he wasn't letting go was because he didn't want to let a Brain Tribe member get Immunity.
In the end, the competition came down to Cydney and Tai, who called on Buddha to help him find strength to push through each excruciating second. To the naked eye, it appeared that Cydney was impenetrable because she stood like a statue for more than 45 minutes, but in one fell swoop, she wilted from her perch, giving Tai good reason to celebrate.
