"Survivor: Cagayan" recap: "Cops-R-Us"

Trish Hegarty, Sarah Lacina, Yung "Woo" Hwang and Cliff Robinson of the Brawn Tribe compete in the Immunity Challenge during the second episode of "Survivor: Cagayan." CBS

What could put a damper on this new "Survivor" season? Try a massive rainstorm.

Bad weather meant soaked clothes and low morale for the Beauty tribe on "Survivor: Cagayan," and that was the least of their troubles on Wednesday's episode.

LJ decides to use the storm to his advantage and go searching for the hidden immunity idol while the rest of his tribe is trying to stay warm and dry (or complaining, life Jefra and Lindsay). And he does find it, tied to a rock in the ocean.

Over at the Brawn tribe, Tony came clean about lying to Sarah last week when he denied being a cop (she's one, too) but then immediately unleashed an entire new stream of lies, telling her Cliff had said he wanted to get rid of her. He says the two of them have to stick together -- hence, Cops-R-Us.

And the Brains, reeling from their disastrous performance at the last two immunity challenges (leaving Spencer as the team's only remaining guy), are practicing for the next challenge by trying to throw water from one bucket to another, which makes for a hilarious sequence set to "The Blue Danube."

Once again, it looks like the Brains are going to finish the immunity challenge last, because despite the practice they're barely getting any water into their buckets. But the second part of the challenge -- navigating a ball through a rotating vertical maze -- plays perfectly to their smartypants strengths and they manage to pull ahead and finish second, behind the Brawn tribe.

That means Team Beauty is going to tribal council. The main alliance of four decides to do a split vote -- two for Alexis, two for Morgan, two for Brice -- in hopes of flushing out a potential immunity idol (which, as mentioned above, LJ already has). Brice was ousted on the revote, which is a shame because his sass and sense of humor will be missed.

"Clearly they wanted the cutest, most fashionable member out first," Brice said in his final words. "I really hope Morgan does well -- and to the rest of their people, I don't even remember their names."

Tell us: Do you think the Beauty tribe sent the right person home?
