4. A fire-making challenge determines the Final 3.
During the season finale's first Tribal Council, the Final 4 noted how quickly the game shifted from one of alliances to another of individual strategy. Unsure of where loyalties lied, Jeff tallied the votes and announced Aubry and Cydney were tied, which meant it was time for a tie-breaker, fire-making challenge.
At first, Aubry lit an impressive fire, but the flames extinguished within seconds and she lost her large lead. While Cydney stayed focused on her own embers, Aubry made a quick comeback and successfully reestablished her fire high enough to split the rope. As Aubry shed tears of joy, knowing she was going to the finals, Cydney wept with disappointment.
