Ep.1 RC: Race for rice
During the marooning, the tribes have the option of leaving the boat at any time and racing to the beach to grab a large bag of rice. As they paddle their raft, Samatau eventually starts tossing out heavy items, to speed up. Asaga reaches the beach first, but struggles to get their raft onto the mat. Samatau all but passes them, and gets a headstart on the rice, lifting Jarrad up to the top of the pyramid to retrieve it. Asaga tries to pull him off, but eventually he prevails, and Samatau gets all the rice, plus whatever is left on their raft. Asaga gets nothing.

Ep.1 Hero RC: Fire making
Tribes are told to select two people to attend, so it's: Asaga (Mark W, Jacqui) vs. Samatau (Tarzan, Adam). Samatau gets their husk burning first, but fails to build a roaring fire. Mark takes a long time to scrape magnesium, but once he sparks it, he builds a big fire quickly. Jacqui assists. Asaga wins, they receive a lit torch and flint.
Ep.1 IC: Obstacles, cubes, tiki puzzle
10 people must scramble under an obstacle, then two people (Peter, Jarrad; Mark, Luke) must climb ropes to release a cargo net. The ten then must move six heavy cubes to build a staircase, go down a ramp, then build a human pyramid to release puzzle pieces. Final two people (AK, Anneliese; Kent, Joan) build a tiki puzzle. Samatau and Asaga start the puzzle at roughly the same time, but Samatau quickly finishes, and wins.
(Jacqui's 50th birthday)
TC1 - Joan voted out (6-6 [7-3]), 23 left.
Ep.2 RC: Slide, put the ball in the square
Kate sits out. In head-to-head bouts, contestants must slide down a water slide, grab a rugby ball, and put it into their tribe's square, scoring a point. First tribe to score seven points wins fishing gear and a canoe. Scoring: Locky d. Mark (S1, A0), Adam d. Luke (S2, A0), Jericho d. Peter (S2, A1), Jacqui d. Anneliese (S2, A2), Tarzan d. Ben (S3, A2), Ziggy d. Odette (S4, A2), Jarrad d. Kent (S5, A2), Aimee d. Michelle (S6, A2), Henry d. AK (S6, A3), Sam d. Tessa (S6, A4), Sarah d. Tara (S6, A5), Locky d. Mark - Samatau wins, 7-5.
After the RC win at Samatau, both Adam and AK notice an idol clue tucked into the reward canoe. Adam has people distract AK, while he retrieves the clue. It directs him to an island in front of their camp. Visible from camp, he goes looking there, but can't find the idol. AK sees him, and goes over to look himself. Not shown, but AK finds the idol. Meanwhile, back at Asaga, Henry and Jacqui find a clue in the lid to the water well. They go directly to the tree in the clue, and Henry finds the idol. He keeps it, as a "shared" idol with Jacqui.
A.K. finds Samatau idol.
Ep.2 IC: Three little pigs obstacle course, war clubs
Tara sits out. Nine tribe members must run through mud, then sticks, then a brick wall. One person hammers on pegs, releasing war clubs, then two people (Ziggy, AK; Jacqui, Henry) use the clubs to break six tiles. AK breaks three tiles for Samatau before Asaga gets their war clubs out, but then Henry and Jacqui each hit 3, and Asaga wins, 6-3. Jacqui throws the winning shot.
TC2 - Adam voted out (5-4-2-1), 22 left.
Ep.3 RC: Big balls
Tribes must push a giant ball ("boulder") through three gates and across a bridge. Then two tribemembers (Jericho, Jacqui; Jarrad, Kate) must walk on top of the ball (while holding a rope) across to a platform, where they toss rings to hook two levers, releasing a ramp. The entire tribe then pushes the ball up the ramp and into a hole. Winner gets comfort items. Results: Samatau takes a lead moving Jarrad and Kate over to the platform, and they release the ramp and finish the challenge before either Jericho or Jacqui hooks a lever. Samatau wins.
|Episode 3||Episode 4||Episode 5||Episode 6|
Ep.3 IC: Rafts, bamboo tower
Tribes must row a raft around three crates, then one person (Locky, Kent) must dive in and untie 23 knots to release a key. The tribes then row back to the beach, use the key to unlock a crate of bamboo, then stack the bamboo around a pole to build a tower. First to have their tower above the pole for five seconds wins. Henry tries to throw the challenge, and Asaga trails by a lot, but speeds past Samatau on the tower building. Somehow, Asaga wins!
TC3 - Kate voted out (5-4-2), 21 left.
Ep.4 RC: Coconuts, surfing
Ben sits out. Jonathan releases a ton of tribe-colored coconuts into the water. Tribes must run out, gather their tribe's coconuts and collect them in a raft. While moving the raft back to the beach, two people (Henry, Luke; Locky, AK) must ride on surfboards on top of the coconuts. Then everyone brings the coconuts in, where the two surfers bounce them off a trampoline to smash three statues. Hits: Locky-3, Luke-1, Henry-1. Samatau wins coffee, tea, and spices.
Ep.4 moral dilemma: Cookies or wood?
A moral dilemma is placed in each camp for one person to find: Take a jar of cookies for yourself, or a load of firewood for the tribe. At Samatau, Tarzan finds it, and wishes he could share the cookies with the tribe, but reluctantly chooses the wood. At Asaga, however, Jericho finds it, picks cookies, then goes to work using the cookies to build alliances with Luke, Henry, and (later) Sarah.
Ep.4 IC: Builders and runners
Kent sits out. Tribes are divided into "builders" (who have to hold up various obstacles) and "runners" (who have to cross them). Obstacles are a cargo net, stepping poles, and two ladders. On the final step, the runners have to carry sandbags across to the final platform, where two of them (AK, Ziggy; Jericho, Henry) toss them at a statue on a rail. Each hit knocks the statue closer to falling off. It's neck and neck, but Asaga wins.
As Samatau prepares for another Tribal Council, Tessa and Tarzan (and AK) go out looking for an idol. Tarzan picks a tree he remembers that has lots of holes, and lo and behold, there's an idol there. Knowing that Locky plans to pile all the votes on Tessa, Tarzan gives her the idol. He does this in front of AK, who he's decided he needs to trust. This turns out to be the wrong decision, and the majority splits their votes between Tarzan and Tessa. Tarzan is idoled out with his own idol.
TC4 - Tarzan idoled out (-3-1), 20 left.
Ep.5 IC: This Much, team version
Ben, Jericho sit out. Tribes must stand, side-by-side on a platform, holding up discs at arm's length between two people. If people step off, they're out, if they drop both discs, they're out. Last tribe with one disc being held up wins. After 20 minutes, just three pairs left: Luke/Jacqui and Henry/Mark for Asaga, Ziggy/AK for Samatau. Luke drops, leaving 1 pair per tribe. Final showdown goes to 1 hr, 45 min, but eventually, AK and Ziggy drop, and Asaga wins.
TC5 - Aimee voted out (5-4), 19 left.
Ep.6 RC: By The Numbers
(As originally seen in Vanuatu). Mark, Kent, Michelle sit out. Eight contestants must stand on a balance beam, and one must go around all the other contestants and exit the beam. If someone falls off, they must start over. If they touch more than one person at a time, they must start over. Order across: Tessa, Ziggy, Anneliese, Locky, Jarrad ... all the Samataus. For Asaga, just Sam and Odette, as Ben falls off repeatedly. Samatau wins a barbecue feast that they cook themselves in camp.

Ep.6 IC: Water obstacles, shell puzzle
Jacqui, Sam, Odette sit out. One at a time, contestants must cross a series of obstacles in the water (tower, slide, net crawl) and go to the beach. Once all are there, one person (Mark; Locky) must chop through a log with a machete, releasing puzzle pieces, then two people (Henry, Sarah; Anneliese, Tessa) must complete a shell puzzle. Asaga has a huge lead, but Henry throws the puzzle, and Samatau wins.

Ep.8 RC: Ball on disc, knocking down tiles
Jacqui sits out. Six people must work together to carry a ball across a series of obstacles — parallel balance beams, a ramp — holding it on a disc suspended with ropes. Then two people (AK, Locky; Kent, Henry) must throw the balls, knocking down four tiles (revealing the message YOUR TRIBE WINS REWARD). Tiles hit: Kent-3, Henry-1, AK-1, Locky-0. Asaga finally wins reward! They get hygiene items plus cheese, crackers, pastries, and champagne.

Ep.10 RC: Vertical palm tree puzzle
Kent sits out for unexplained medical reasons, Jericho volunteers to double up on tasks to compensate. Half of tribe (Luke, Jericho, then Michelle, Tara; Locky, Ziggy, then Peter, Jarrad) must push a heavy cart full of puzzle pieces to the puzzle station. Then two people (Jericho, Odette; Henry, Ben) must pull on a rope raising the puzzle (a palm tree, with the pieces making the trunk) as it's built by two other people (Anneliese, Sarah; AK, Tessa). Samatau's bulk gives them a lead in pushing the cart, but Asaga passes them on the puzzle, and wins. They get a trip to the Survivor ice cream parlor. Anneliese finds idol clue.
Ep.10 IC: Disc race, circle puzzle
Six tribe members must move a set of discs along a rope wrapped around obstacles, then take them off the end of the rope. Then roll them up a ramp, then shove them up a slide. Discs will eventually push a key out from the top of the slide, which unlocks a crate of puzzle pieces. Two people (Henry, AK; Anneliese, Kent) then use those to work a circular sun/tiki puzzle. Samatau wins.
Ep.10 idol: Anneliese
At the ice cream reward, Anneliese found a clue in her cone, directing her to another (highly visible) clue in a tree near the reward site. She successfully retrieves that clue, which tells her where the idol will be hidden at the next immunity challenge. Anneliese enlists Sarah's help, after the clue warns the idol will be difficult for the puzzle-solver to retrieve. But at the IC, Sarah and Asaga never reach the stage where the idol is concealed. After the challenge ends, Anneliese feigns frustration, sits down on the idol location, and grabs the idol, undetected.
TC11 - Kent voted out (5-2-1), 15 left.
Both tribes receive gifts from home.
Ep.11 RC: Key grab, logo puzzle, sandbags
Jarrad sits out. Three people per tribe (Ziggy, Peter, Locky; Luke, Michelle, Odette) must jump off a platform, grab a key, and swim to shore. There, they use the keys to unlock a block logo puzzle, which two people ( AK, Tessa; Sarah, Anneliese) put together. Then two more people (Ben, Henry; Jericho, Tara) must throw sandbags to knock the puzzle off the table. The winning tribe will attend Tribal Council, and vote for someone to win the Ultimate Reward (idol nullifier). Thanks to Michelle having to jump 3x, Samatau has a huge lead heading into the puzzle, blows it, but comes back as Ben and Henry throw sandbags. Ben hits the final block off, and Samatau wins.
Non-TC - Ziggy sent to reward.
Ep.11 super-idol: Ziggy
After Samatau votes to send her for the chance to compete for the still-unknown "Ultimate Reward," Ziggy arrives, reads the rules, and learns she's searching for a "super idol" guarded by a "fierce face" in a mangrove swamp. In the dark. And, starting at 11 pm, she has until sunrise to find it, with just a lit torch for light. After wading around in the dark for about six hours, she finally finds the statue, breaks it, and retrieves a "super-idol": half is a regular idol, the other half is an idol nullifier, which can be played *after* the votes are read.
Ep.12 RC: Idol Hands
Held immediately after the tribe swap. Tessa sits out. As seen in Philippines. In one-on-one bouts, contestants must hold an idol on a handheld base, trying to knock their opponent's idol off of its base, while protecting their own.

Ep.12 IC: Fill up the barrels
Michelle sits out. One man and one woman from each tribe (Locky, Ziggy; AK, Tara) must hold up a barrel, while people from the other tribe try to fill those two buckets with water, eventually making them so heavy, they're dropped. Last tribe left holding up a bucket wins. Asaga directs all their fillers to solely target Locky, who struggles, but holds onto a massive amount of weight. Samatau targets their weight more evenly. AK drops first, then Tara. Samatau wins.
