Challenges

Challenge: Tower of Power
The castaways raced through an obstacle course while collecting a bag of puzzle pieces. Using the numbers on the pieces, they solved a combination lock to release a key that would unlock a second set of puzzle pieces to complete a hanging bat puzzle at the end. The first castaway to solve their puzzle wins.
Reward: Steak dinner with wine waiting for the winner at camp.
Winner: David Wright (reward stolen by Jay Starrett; chose David and Adam Klein to join him on reward)

Challenge: Draw the Line
The castaways moved a buoy through obstacles in the water. Upon reaching shore, they transported puzzle pieces across a teeter totter and then used the pieces to solve a word puzzle; first to do so won immunity.
Winner: Ken McNickle

Challenge: Operation Balance Build
The castaways used a long pole to maneuver a wooden bowl around a metal rod structure; they would then balance the bowl on the top of the structure. The structure is mounted on a spring, so the structure would sway if the castaway touches the structure while maneuvering the bowl, possibly toppling the bowls from the top of the structure. The player with the most bowls after thirty minutes or the first to stack thirteen bowls on top won immunity.
Winner: Ken McNickle

(laughs) Oh man, you got me, you got me! It sucks to go out! I tried my best - begging, pleading, fighting, scrambling, but, uh, I had a lot of fun. It was a great experience. Much love for everyone.

Going out like this sucks. If those were two people that had some sort of a brain, they would have learned that David is going to eat them alive, and they would have voted him out tonight. But I must say, this is a great game, it brought me out of my shell finally. I mean, how lucky am I to have actually been a part of Survivor after being a fan for so many years?

David

Obviously I wanted to be Sole Survivor, I wanted to win the million dollars, but I've had so much personal growth from this experience, that I'm gonna walk out of this game a new man, really. And that is worth more than a million dollars, so, in a way, I really did win.

Life at Ponderosa

Secret Scene

  • Extended Scene: While Jay heads off from camp, the rest of the tribe jokes around. Then, Hannah worries that Jay may be looking for an idol and suggests that somebody keeps an eye on him. Ken finds Jay, and Jay, taken aback, hurriedly grabs coconuts in order to keep his facade. While David, Jay, and Ken head back to camp, Jay surveys the scene for any idols. Out of the blue, he sees the fake idol that David had planted the previous night.
