[Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers from Survivor Season 43 Episode 10, “Get That Money, Baby.”]
Noelle makes a major comeback on ‘Survivor 43’
“Get That Money, Baby” showed the final eight players competing for a reward. Jeff Probst revealed the winner would go to a sanctuary where they’ll eat pizza, dessert, and alcohol. They’ll spend the night there with pillows and blankets.
Karla Cruz, Sami Layadi, Jesse Lopez, Cody Assenmacher, Cassidy Clark, Mike Gabler, Owen Knight, and Noelle competed against each other. Noelle was at pace with those in the lead. But she fell behind at the balance beam. She kept falling and started to doubt herself when hopping on one leg wasn’t working.
“I have no f***ing idea how I’m gonna do this,” the athlete said as she reset. Everyone else made it to the last portion of the challenge as she continued to struggle.
She started crying as she kept trying. Noelle finally got her sandbag but still had to cross the beam. She finally finished by hopping on one leg. After her second try, she managed to throw her sandbag, and it landed on her post.
She immediately collapsed on the ground and started crying as everyone congratulated her. “I have seen a lot of things in 43 seasons,” Probst said. “That is up there at the top.”
‘Survivor 43’ fans clapped and cheered for Noelle Lambert’s reward win
The episode took fans on a rollercoaster. Reddit fans talked about Noelle’s shining moment and revealed their reactions.
“I actually screamed, ahaha,” one fan admitted.
“This was such a fantastic comeback, up there with Kass, Cydney, and Chrissy,” someone claimed.
“I cried!” another person revealed.
“One of the only times I legit applauded watching Survivor. That woman is an absolute bad a**. She definitely inspired a lot of people in a similar position as her, especially tonight,” a fan praised.
“I shed a few tears for her because I can only imagine how awesome that feeling was for her,” someone else replied.
“She said she won by luck, she was lucky she got it on her second throw, but she absolutely didn’t get immunity by luck, she got it by hard work and grit,” one person noted.
“Is one of the best survivor moments ever – she went into that challenge with the lowest odds of winning, and yet she won it,” one commenter claimed.
“Let me tell you I got CHILLS watching that,” someone wrote.
The win probably would’ve earned Noelle the title of Sole Survivor at the end. So, unfortunately, the cast voted her out. Fans will have to wait and see how she’ll vote as a jury member.
