  • Lakshmi Priyaa gets eliminated; Saran Shakthi enjoys a narrow escape: In the latest episode of Survivor Tamil, host Arjun welcomed members of both the Kadargal and Vedargal tribes for the first joint tribal panchayat. He shared, there will be one elimination from both tribes. Arjun welcomed Nandaa and Vikranth, the winners of the immunity idols with a special mention and shared that they are already safe. Arjun asked Aishwarya Krishnan the reason behind his preference for Saran Shakthi over Prabhakar, when they both are outsiders. Later, Arjun asked the members of both the tribes to rate the leadership of the captains of their rival tribes. Vikranth received good ratings from his tribe and his rival tribe. After all the discussion, Arjun asked the members to cast their vote for eliminating one member from their tribe. Arjun brought the votes cast by the members. On asking whether someone has hidden the immunity idol, Inigo Prabhakar gives affirmation by his reply. Hence, the votes cast against him became null and void. He also gets immunity from elimination. Saran Shakthi from Kadargal tribe and Lakshmi from the Vedargal tribe got shortlisted for elimination after counting the votes. Arjun informed that from those two members, only one will get eliminated for the day. In that way, Saran and Lakshmi were selected for elimination. Arjun offered the option for the ‘Draw the rocks’ procedure. They both had to pick a stone each without seeing the stones in the little bag. Saran got the black stone and hence he escaped the process of nomination. But, Lakshmi got the white stone and hence she was selected for elimination. At last, Lakshmi tried her luck with the smashing idol, the last lifeline. Even in that option, she got the white balls and hence she was voted out from her tribe. After the tribal panchayat, the Vedargal tribe members expressed their dissent against Inigo Prabhakar for not revealing about the immunity idol.
  • Besant Ravi gets evicted from the show: Arjun said Ravi is the only contestant to volunteer for eviction adding that he shares a great bonding with his tribe and some of his teammates got emotional when he asked them to vote against him. Ravi said he has learnt that he can withstand any physical challenge after participating in the show. Arjun informed that Ravi has an option to continue his journey in the show if he is ready to go to Moondram Ulagam (third island). Ravi readily accepted the opportunity and headed to the Moondram Ulagam. Ravi discussed how he landed up in Moondram Ulagam. Later, Vijayalakshmi, Gayathri Reddy and Ravi were asked to decide the elimination for the day. Vijayalakshmi challenged Ravi and he accepted in spite of his injuries. Arjun explained the task. He said a maze has been set up on a table and Vijayalakshmi and Ravi should find a way to take the rod out of the maze. Then, they had to break the box and take the puzzle pieces. The person, who finishes the puzzle, becomes the winner. Vijayalakshmi finished the puzzle first and Ravi lost the task.
  • Narayan and Vanessa Cruez, the new leaders of both the tribes had a pep talk with their respective tribe members. Narayan advised Saran Shakthi to control his anger and try to talk politely. The host Arjun invited both the tribes for the reward challenge. Arjun asked about Lady Kash's injury. She replied that doctors advised her to stay out of the challenge for the day. Hence, Arjun asked one member from the Vedargal tribe to stay out and Besant Ravi volunteered for the same. The Kadargal tribe with the help of Lakshmi Priyaa solved the puzzle first and therefore they won the reward challenge.
  • Vijayalakshmi questions the show's format; VJ Parvathy gets evicted: Arjun announced that Saran Sakthi should have been eliminated from the show based on the decision taken in the last tribal panchayat. But, since he got golden-colored balls when he used his last lifeline, he survived and even got a special power to evict someone else. Sakthi chose Vijayalakshmi. As Vijayalakshi was upset with the turn of events, Arjun gave her an option to shift to the Moondram Ulagam if she wishes to continue in the game. Since she didn't want to set a bad example to her son Nilan by quitting, she moved to the Moondram Ulagam. Vijayalakshmi met VJ Parvathy and Gayathri Reddy there and discussed how each one of them were pushed to the island. Later, Arjun invited Vijayalakshmi, Parvathy and Gayathri to decide the elimination for the day. Vijayalakshmi questioned the rules of the game and asked how Saran got a special power to vote someone out. Arjun said it isn’t right to question the format of the game and that luck also plays a major role in the game. Parvathy and Gayathri were allowed to participate in the task as they got white stones while Vijayalakshmi had to rest as she got a black stone. According to the eliminator task, a pin-table set up and a puzzle with blocks were set up. The two of them had to push the ball and by the time it settles down, they should arrange the word Survivor from the puzzle. Arjun gave them an additional minute to arrange the same. Gayathri eventually finished the task first. Hence, Parvathy got eliminated from the show. She bid adieu to the show and everyone good luck.

Arjun informed them that all the three contestants will stay at Moondram Ulagam (third island). They will be given a few tasks. The winners can stay while the loser will have to leave the show. Srushti, Gayathri and Indraja had an open minded discussion while they were preparing the food. They were informed about today's task. Out of the three, two contestants had to participate in the task to decide the elimination. As they could not decide among themselves about the participants of the task, Arjun asked them to close their eyes and pick a stone from the sack. Srushti and Gayathri got the white stone and hence they were asked to participate in the task. Srushti and Gayathri were asked to arrange the logs and rings and arrange those in two layers. They had to make it stand for at least 3 seconds. Gayathri observed the tips given by Arjun and placed the logs in two layers correctly. Hence, Srushti got eliminated from the show.
