Ep.1 RC: Spinning slide puzzle

Ep.1 RC: Spinning slide puzzle

Ep.1 RC: Spinning slide puzzle

Held immediately on arrival, Day 1. Contestants must initially choose one person (Gerald; Cara/Mitch/Andrew) to choose between a slide puzzle or chopping through a log to release a key. Once released, one person (Simon; Wai) acts as the caller as the rest of the tribe does a spinning, 6-arm slide puzzle (as seen in the F5 IC of Heroes v Healers v Hustlers). The goal is to slide letter tiles to spell the tribe name (BRAWN or BRAIN) in five arms of the puzzle. Gerald chops the log quickly, giving Brawn a huge lead. Cara chooses the puzzle, swaps out for Mitch, who eventually gives up, decides to chop. Andrew takes over on chopping, releases the key. The Brains soon catch up on the puzzle, and both tribes are neck and neck, placing the fifth word. Brawn wins, chooses a survival kit (fruit, tarp, ropes) over fire in the form of a burning torch.

Ep.1 IC: Climb, carts, slingshot

Ep.1 IC: Climb, carts, slingshot

Ep.1 IC: Climb, carts, slingshot

Tribes must cross a series of obstacles, untie a ladder, climb up to a cart, send people down it 6 at a time, then climb a rope to release 4 balls, then use a giant slingshot to land those balls in a basket. First tribe to land four balls wins. Both tribes are close through the cart ride. Brains take an early lead on the slingshot as Joey lands a ball in the net, but they swap him out Andrew who misses repeatedly, while Simon lands four shots for Brawn. Brawn wins, 4-1.

Historical notes:

  • Filmed near Cloncurry, northwestern Queensland, as reported by Kelly Butterworth for ABC North West Qld (2/10/21).
  • Jonathan LaPaglia had to spend two weeks in quarantine after arriving from the US, before he could begin work. He was starting his second week of quarantine as of April 3. (Putting him out of quarantine circa April 10th.) Posted "back at work" on May 2.
  • As of June 23, 2021, the details above are pure speculation, it's just the All-Stars calendar transposed to this season's approximate filming dates of April 22 - June 10, 2021. (Thanks for the tips on the end date.)
  • July 16, 2021: Pre-season JLP video tour of Brains camp reveals the season will run 48 days, not 50 (or 55).
