The press release from CBS, regarding the upcoming episode:
CERTAIN CASTAWAYS RECEIVE NEWS FROM HOME ON
"SURVIVOR: THE AMAZON," THURSDAY, APRIL 24
"Q&A" – Certain castaways receive news from home on SURVIVOR: THE AMAZON, Thursday, April 24 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
In a twist to the auction reward, the castaways not only bid on items of food but also on letters from home. When the time comes to bid on these letters, emotions run high as a fierce bidding war breaks out, leading some to exuberance and others to tears. Particularly good news from home makes one castaway giddy with excitement and ultimately gives them a huge morale boost. Back at camp, a comfortable few who feel secure in their alliance take it easy while the others toil in desperate attempt to stay in the tribe. In a last ditch attempt to save themselves, one castaway promises to vote against a trusted ally which then sends the targeted friend into a tailspin.
And the tenth person is voted out of the tribe.
