Ep.1 IC: Outrigger Fire Quest

Ep.1 IC: Outrigger Fire Quest

Ep.1 IC: Outrigger Fire Quest

Tribes must carry an outrigger canoe out into the surf, swim it past a number of buoys, out to a wok in the ocean. There, they must light two torches (which can be carried in the canoe), then move the canoe back to shore, lighting woks along the way. Once on shore, they must carry the canoe across a rocky beach course, lighting more woks, then place the canoe in a cradle and light the final wok. First tribe to do so wins. Maraamu and Rotu are fairly even up to the first wok, but Maraamu can't get its second torch lit, and tips the wok over, dousing the flame. They use one of Rotu's already-lit woks to light the second torch, but never catch up to Rotu. Rotu wins.

Ep.2 RC: Do or Dive

Ep.2 RC: Do or Dive

Ep.2 RC: Do or Dive

Robert sits out. Each tribe has a rowboat, sunk at the bottom of the ocean with 250 rocks inside. Tribes must dive down and remove the rocks until the boat floats, then move it over to the dock and bail water. When the tribe decides it's seaworthy, they all get in and paddle to the beach. First to place their boat on the mat wins fishing gear. Gabriel quickly removes a ton of rocks for Rotu, and their boat surfaces first. They take a lead leaving the dock, and never give it up. Rotu wins.

← Previous: Ep.1 IC Next: Ep.2 IC →

Ep2 RC: "Do or Dive" - Rotu wins fishing gear.

Ep.2 IC: Marquesan Menu

Ep.2 IC: Marquesan Menu (fafaru)

Ep.2 IC: Marquesan Menu

Nobody sits out, but Hunter has to go twice for Maraamu. Contestants must bob for Fafaru, a Marquesan delicacy - fermented fish. Everyone handles their fafaru in the first round, so it's tied, although Boston Rob and Neleh struggle. Unsurprisingly, Maraamu picks Neleh and Rotu picks Boston Rob for the tiebreaker. Neleh wins easily, Rob throws up. Rotu wins again.

← Previous: Ep.2 RC Next: Ep.3 RC →

Ep2 IC: "Marquesan Menu" - Rotu wins again.

Ep.3 RC: Raft Rescue

Ep.3 RC: Raft Rescue

Paschal, Neleh sit out. The day before, Probst goes to each camp, and gives them raft-building supplies. Each tribe builds a raft that can carry extra stuff. At the challenge, they must paddle through a zigzag course, picking up five crates that are clipped to the ocean floor. First back gets choice of 1 week's supply of rice or comfort items (blankets, pillows, lamps). Results: Both tribes get their 5th box at around the same time, and it's a pure paddling race, which Rotu wins handily. Rotu picks comfort items.

← Previous: Ep.2 IC Next: Ep.3 IC →

Ep3 RC: "Raft Rescue" - Rotu wins, chooses comfort items.
Day 9

Ep.3 IC: Coconut Maze Race

Gina; Tammy, Robert, John sit out. Giant table maze with four people on the corners raising or lowering via ropes/pulleys, and a caller directing them. Three balls (coconuts) to land, caller must rotate each time. Results by caller: Vee-1, Gabe-1, Sarah-1, Paschal-1, Rob-0, Zoe-1, as Maraamu has the ball in the right spot and keeps missing, while Rotu just rolls theirs in. Rotu wins.

← Previous: Ep.3 RC Next: Ep.4 swap →

Ep.4 tribal swap

Ep.4 tribal swap

Tribes arrive and are told there's no challenge, but they still each have to stand on a wooden disc. They do, and then one at a time, Probst tells them to turn their disc over. Underneath is a new buff - they've been swapped into new Rotu (which still has 8 people) and new Maraamu (which still has 5). Kathy, Neleh, Paschal go to Maraamu; Rob, Sean, Vee go to Rotu.

← Previous: Ep.3 IC Next: Ep.4 IC →

Ep.4 IC: Life's a Tapestry

Sean, John, Boston Rob sit out. Tribes are given a large frame with bands of fabric woven around it, which contain a scrambled picture. Tribes must rotate the fabric bands until each lines up, forming the given picture - like a slide puzzle, but with fabric. Gabe quickly directs Rotu's efforts. Kathy tries to get Maraamu to do the same, but they make no progress. Rotu wins easily.

← Previous: Ep.4 swap Next: Ep.5 RC →

Ep4 IC: "Life's A Tapestry" - Rotu wins again.

Ep.5 RC: Tiki Towers

Ep.5 RC: Tiki Towers

Sean, Boston Rob, Vee, Zoe sit out. Each tribe has three blindfolded people retrieving 14 tiki puzzle pieces and one sighted caller (Gabe, Kathy) directing them. Once all pieces are retrieved, tribe must assemble five tiki statues from the pieces. Results: Rotu thinks they're done, but Gabe miscounts, and is missing one piece. Maraamu finishes and starts on their puzzle while Gabe is frantically trying to see where the last piece is. Maraamu has a huge lead on the puzzle, and wins. They get to raid Rotu's camp.

← Previous: Ep.4 IC Next: Ep.5 IC →

(Nov. 25)

Ep.5 IC: Distress Signal

Ep.5 IC: Distress Signal

Ep.5 IC: Distress Signal

Basic SOS signal challenge, but Gabe, John, Robert and Tammy all have to sit out, and Rotu is freshly out of useful supplies. Completely above board, no possible chance of favoritism in judging here. The pious underdogs of Maraamu win another one, due to their having Paschal's personal item (an American flag) and the white blanket they just stole from Rotu. Praise the lord.

← Previous: Ep.5 RC Next: Ep.6 RC →

Ep5 IC: "Distress Signal" - Maraamu wins.

Ep.6 RC: Jungle Relay

Ep.6 RC: Jungle Relay

Vee, Sean, Tammy sit out. Boston Rob, Paschal run first leg, retrieve paddle. They tag in Zoe and Neleh, retrieve second paddle, then smash coconuts to retrieve a key. Rowers (John, General; Gina, Kathy) use key to unlock outrigger, paddle out, retrieve a flag, paddle back to shore, place flag in tiki. John/General enter the water before Paschal/Neleh even untie their second paddle, but somehow blow this massive lead, and get to their flag second. Still, they place their flag in the tiki first. Except that they fail to leave outrigger within reach of the chain, and the General is not at the tiki when the flag is placed. Rotu is disqualified, Maraamu "wins." They get a feast plus lots of Sierra Mist.
