Challenges

Challenge: All Mixed Up
Divided into two teams of five, castaways will need to maneuver through an obstacle, where they must grab a bag hanging from an a-frame. Teams will then go under a cargo net, where they will use the number tiles to figure out a number combination for a lock, releasing a key. The key will then unlock a snake-shaped puzzle. The first team to finish their puzzle wins.
Reward: A trip to a burger bar, complete with beer and soft drinks
Winner: Orange Team (Alec Merlino, Dan Rengering, Davie Rickenbacker, Kara Kay, and Mike White)

Challenge: Roll Away the Dew
Castaways will have to race out to release a set of three balls. They must then carry the balls one at a time over a series of obstacles while balancing it on a disc. Once they have crossed through the obstacles, they will need to navigate the balls on a track to get them into one of three slots. The first person to get all three balls into their slot wins.
Winner: Alec Merlino

Final Words

S37 dan bw.png
Dan

You think when you have an idol, you're golden, but I just got knocked out of the game. Who would have thought that there was a daggum Idol Nullifier? Who's ever heard of that? It took the Davids two advantages and turning some Goliaths to take me out. I take a lot of pride in that. I'm pretty sure that Kara flipped her vote, it kinda hurts a little bit. But if she wants to work on the bottom of the Davids, that's her problem, not mine.
