Challenges

Challenge: Boulder Dash
Both tribes will have nine members maneuver a large boulder through a series of gates and then on top of a bridge. Afterwards, two tribe members will then get on top of the boulder to get from one high platform to another. On the second platform, they will then throw rings onto pegs in order to release a ramp. The first tribe to get their boulder up the ramp and into the holes wins.
Reward: Chairs, a hammock, sheets, lanterns, candles, and a tarp.
Winner: Samatau

Challenge: Raft and the Furious
Both tribes will paddle a raft out past a series of crates to a moor. They will have one member swim out and dive down and untie a series of knots to get a key. They will then need to paddle back to shore and use the key to unlock a chest containing bamboo. Using the bamboo, they will then construct a tower around a pole. The tribe that builds a tower higher than their pole and can stay up for five seconds wins.
Winner: Asaga

(voting against Kate) Sorry, Kate. I love you, but you're backing the wrong horse this time.

Tessa

(voting against Tara) Try telling Adam you didn't flip.

Locky

(voting against Kate) I guess Tarzan is a miracle worker.

Kate

(voting against Tara) Tara, you're a great girl but I'm showing my alliance to Tessa tonight.

AUS4 anneliese t.png
Anneliese

(voting against Tessa) I really like you, but you never once tried to work with me.

AUS4 ak t.png
AK

(voting against Kate) I don't trust you the second you said "I don't eat fast food".

Ziggy

(voting against Tessa) In case I didn't make it clear enough last time with my vote, I'm definitely not in your alliance anymore. So I'm splitting with you and Kate.

Tara

(voting against Tessa) I didn't flip.

AUS4 aimee t.png
Aimee

(voting against Tessa) Tessa, sorry babe but it's just who I'm voting.

Peter

(voting against Kate) This is just to keep the core alliance strong.


Final Words

Kate

How am I feeling now? Um- oh, disappointed. My ambition on Survivor was top three, not bottom three. I was surprised Tess came out so strongly, but I think she did that because she honestly believed she was going home and I wasn't. I think Tessa will be the Sole Survivor, I think she is physically strong, mentally strong, so I- I think she's really one to watch.
