Immunity
N00less cluebie and Big Will E Style both tied for the highest score this round, and are both immune from elimination in Round 11!

Elimination
Symbiosis and Lantern tied for the lowest cumulative scores this round. However, Lantern has immunity from having the highest score in the last round, so he cannot be eliminated this round. Therefore, Engie, with the next lowest cumulative score, is eliminated this round. Tough luck, Engie. Thanks to both Symbi and Engie for playing. You must now walk the plank!

Elimination
Heartscoffee and Dangerous Beans had the two lowest cumulative scores after Round 12, however, heartscoffee has immunity from Round 11, and cannot be eliminated. RogueMonk has the next lowest cumulative score, and is therefore eliminated instead. Sorry Monk, you played an excellent game, but immunity is fickle. Thanks for playing, Beans and Monk! Take your walk off the plank!
