Day 3

Challenges

Challenge: Race to Shore
Tribe members will race to grab items for their campsite on top of a barge and place on their supplies on their rafts. Once both tribes are finished gathering items, they will race to shore, where they need to grab a bag of rice hanging on an a-frame. The first tribe to grab the rice bag wins.
Reward: A bag of rice.
Additional Stipulation: The losing tribe will not be allowed to bring the items they collected back to their campsite.
Winner: Samatau

Challenge: Flint
Both tribes will send two volunteers for this challenge. Both tribes will be given an ample amount of fire-making essentials, and must make a flame high enough to burn through a rope to win.
Reward: A lit torch and flint.
Winner: Asaga

Challenge: Uprising
Ten members of the tribe will race under a next crawl to get to a platform. At the platform, two members of the runners will climb up, where they will need to untie ropes to release a net rope, which the remaining eight runners will climb up. Once all ten runners are on the platform, they can make their way down on crates, which they will use to climb up a second platform. Once all ten runners are on the second platform, they will slide down, and race to a mat. Once all ten runners are on the mat, they must construct a human pyramid to reach a handle to release two bags containing puzzle pieces. The runners will then hand off the bags to the last two castaways. The puzzle solvers must compete a tiki idol puzzle correctly to win.
Winner: Samatau

Ben

(voting against Kent) Sorry buddy, but this is just part of the plan I'm involved in.

AUS4 joan t.png
Joan

(voting against Kent) It's either you or me.

AUS4 jericho t.png
Jericho

(voting against Kent) I think you're a good guy, except you're closer with Sam, and I can't have that.

AUS4 samantha t.png
Samantha

(voting against Joan) I think Kent has spent a little more time socially connecting to more people. So, that's why my vote's this way.

AUS4 markw t.png
Mark W.

(voting against Joan) Joan, like- you're a legend. But you- uh, let us down today in the puzzle.

AUS4 odette t.png
Odette

(voting against Kent) Sorry, Kent. Uh, the last conversation I had had your name on it- uh, all the way through. So- uh, it's gonna have to be you.

AUS4 henry t.png
Henry

(voting against Joan) Joan, sorry I didn't talk to any of my alliance enough to swing it your way tonight. But you're a hundred percent correct, they should've voted a strategic player out tonight. Maybe your yoga instructor.

AUS4 michelle t.png
Michelle

(voting against Kent) I'm sorry I had to do this, but you lost the challenge for us and someone has to go.

AUS4 kent t.png
Kent

(voting against Joan) It's either you or me, so it's gotta be you.

AUS4 sarah t.png
Sarah

(voting against Joan) I'm sorry I had to lie, but it's a game of Survivor, and you gotta do what you gotta do.

AUS4 jacqui t.png
Jacqui

(voting against Joan) For me, tonight's vote- um, has to keep the team as strong as we can. So, I'm sorry.

AUS4 luke t.png
Luke

(shouting to tribe) OI, HOW DO YOU SPELL 'HENRY'? (voting against Kent) Uh, yeah mate, you're obviously a really good guy. But I'm just gonna put this game on its head right at the start.

No revote confessionals aired in this episode.

Final Words

AUS4 joan bw.png
Joan

Being the first to go was my worst nightmare come true. Um- but, y'know, someone had to be the first, and unfortunately, it was me. I think Sole Survivor will be Sarah, she's friendly with everyone without being too obvious. If I had my chance again, I would not sleep on the second night and I would've just not done the puzzle. I would've just dug my heels in and climbed that net! I definitely think my tribe made a huge mistake. I just want to say to my tribe, y'know, "good luck, I hate that you voted me out first, um- but, y'know, it's all good". It's all good, baby baby! (laughs)
