Michele won the immunity challenge right when she needed it and fans are stoked with her win. 

'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40 returned on Wednesday night with an all-new episode. Titled 'The Penultimate Step of the War' this week, the series headed into its 13th episode that aired for two hours, unlike the usual episodes. With the finale nearing, the tension among the castaways went to a whole new level. 

Last week we saw Kim get voted out after she tried to target Tony. But since Tony ended up winning the immunity challenge, the target was shifted to Jeremy. But in the end, Kim was the one to get voted out. Everyone seems to be playing Tony's game and that doesn't go unnoticed. 

During the first half of the episode, Jeremy was the first to get voted out and sent to Edge of Extinction after Nick decided to chicken out and not vote for Ben, but vote for Jeremy instead. With Jeremy gone, the target was now on Michele and she had to do everything possible to stay in the game. 

Luckily, Nick received an advantage from the Edge of Extinction where he could play a disadvantage against anyone in the tribe. Since he had to pay eight tokens for it and he only had 6, he decided to go to Michele and ask for help. 

She helped him out with the two tokens and they decided to play it against Ben. Arriving at the immunity challenge, the castaways had to stack blocks like dominoes until they fall on a gong. Right from the start, Michele managed to stay in the lead. Even though she dropped one block, which gave Sarah, Tony and Ben the chance to catch up, Michele managed to finish the row first. 

In her first attempt to make the blocks fall like dominoes on the gong, Michele succeeded in winning immunity. This was a major win for her this week because she was a target and this immunity would keep her safe from the tribal council. 

Taking to Twitter, fans said they are stoked and added that Michele deserved the win. "WE STAN NATALIE AND MICHELE THERE ARE NO OTHER OPTIONS #Survivor #[email protected] @meeshfitz," a fan shared.

"Who do you want to be voted out of #Survivor40 tonight? Stoked Michele won immunity. #Survivor #SurvivorWinnersAtWar," a fan wrote. While another added, "Michele, loved when you won the first time around... You are a smart, great player... Been rooting for you and Jeremy all season... Hope you’re sitting in the finals next week. @meeshfitz #Survivor40 #Survivor #SurvivorWinnersAtWar." 

"Oh wowwww. Michele stays queen of being left out of every vote. We stan! #Survivor," a fan said. Adding to that another fan shared, "YES MICHELE WON IMMUNITY WE DESERVE THIS WE'VE WAITED SO LONG #SURVIVOR." 

"Michele continuing to be a legend tonight!! I said what I said!!! #Survivor #SurvivorWinnersAtWar," a fan wrote.
