But before they got there, Harry, Pia and Baden fought it out for the final immunity chain.
The trio were forced onto pedestals, where they were forced to hold idol weights without dropping them.
The debilitating task became almost unbearable for the trio, with Harry and Pia first to collapse under the weight of the challenge.
While Baden remained strong while she was extremely talkative, Pia shivered in pain while Harry was almost over-balanced.

& # 39; I think Baden can win better against me, & # 39; Pia said, trying to reach the last two.
& # 39; I have seen Pia & # 39; s competition since the tribe change. And it's subtle, yes. But if you think it was somehow a weak game, then you are completely wrong, & Harry said.
& # 39; I mean, she's a professional actress and she went through this game and is deceptive about how strong she is. That's dangerous, & he added.
Graceful: Harry was gracious when he left the game: & # 39; It was an absolute privilege to play with you. Just like an honor. I can't wait to see you tomorrow, & he said
Harry further told Baden that Pia would beat both.

& # 39; I've always had trouble growing up. I looked to empower people like me. I feel that I have been transformed. & # 39;
At the start of their final jury meeting, the members of the Baden and Pia tribal council were allowed to ask final questions to choose a winner.
To ask them to reveal their secret game games, alliances and why they should win, the council then cast their votes individually.
Completed: the last two did a final 50th notch on a tree branch, with the couple contemplative about their time in the series during the morning
& # 39; I came into this game as someone who thought that applying for Survivor was something frightening. I came in super-awkward, super-shy, & he said.
Baden then explained his game.
& # 39; In my opinion, in this game, once you are in the leadership position, you have a very short time before you are kicked out,

& # 39; So my goal was to get to that position as late as possible … The movements are there. And I'll own it tonight. & # 39;
Pia then explained her social game.
& # 39; I would not be the strongest, but I knew that what I wanted to do was underestimated, but it would always be fiercely strategic, & # 39; she said.
Answers: Nine judges asked Baden and Pia questions about their games, some of them calling them goats
& # 39; I knew that when people came to me, I wanted a buffer of strong people around me, so they would come for them first.
& # 39; That buffer worked because you first came for Simon and then for Janine. & # 39;
& # 39; I was always that smooth little fool who was there and you didn't know you had to catch me until it was too late. & # 39;
Shocked: & # 39; I was someone who was willing to vote. I would do it with a smile on my face if it meant that I would move forward & # 39 ;, Pia said to a shocked Luke during the Survivor Jury
Pia added: & # 39; I was someone who was willing to vote. I would do it with a smile on my face if it meant that I would move forward. & # 39;
