Challenges

Challenge: Swiss Cheese Please
The castaways would be divided into two teams of four. Two members at a time from each team would race across a field to retrieve a large puzzle board. Once the pair returns, the other two teammates would retrieve another board. Four boards would need to be retrieved. Once retrieved, the boards would have to be arranged in a line so that the large holes were aligned like a grille to reveal seven vowels. The revealed vowels and seven consonants given to the team would need to be arranged to solve a four word phrase. The first team to solve the phrase would win.
Reward: The winning team would go on a trip to a local village for a feast of local food and a demonstration of Capoeira.
Winners: Red Team (Debbie Beebe, Erin Lobdell, J.T. Thomas, and Tyson Apostol) (exiled Stephen Fishbach)

Challenge: Tocantins Shuffle
The castaways would play a version of shuffleboard. Each castaway would be given three pucks which they would try to slide closest to the target. The castaway whose puck ends up closest to the target would win. In addition, if any of the contestants did not want to participate, they would get to eat pizza for the duration of the challenge.
Winner: Debbie Beebe

(voting against Sierra) I'm voting for you because you have a weird, deformed finger from a horse bite. Gross!

J.T.

(voting against Tyson) Sorry, buddy. But, uh, just in case I can't beat you later.

S18 erinn t.png
Erinn

(voting against Tyson) I wish you never would have lied to me. I wouldn't have to do this.

Taj

(voting against Tyson) Sorry.

Stephen

(voting against Tyson) When opportunity knocks, you have to let him in because opportunity is a mean dude and if you don't, he might burn down your house or steal your car. Sorry, man.

S18 sierra t.png
Sierra

(voting against Tyson) You're a jerk.

S18 coach t.png
Coach

(voting against Sierra) Last week, Sierra, I slayed the dragon. This week, I had to take of his bride. Truth and consequences. That'll set you free every time. Goodnight, sweet princess.

Debbie

(voting against Sierra) Sierra, you made a bad play in the game. I hate it. I'm gonna miss you, my sweet friend. Good luck.


Final Words

Sneaky bastards. Now I know how Brendan feels. Yeah, it was a big shock. I thought I had my game in the bag. But shouldn't probably not been as quite confident or so gullible. Good luck to everybody. I guess everybody deserves to be there. You beat me. That's a huge accomplishment. That bothers me that Sierra will be here longer than me. Little weird being outfoxed by an idiot. But I'm not crying over it.
