Challenge: Angry Chair
One person from each team will race through a series of obstacles to a chair. The rest of the team will then lift the chair, allowing that person to retrieve 10 numbered bags. Once they have collected the 10 bags, the next person will go, retrieving the next 10 bags, and so on. Once all 30 bags have been collected, the team must use the 30 letter tiles to solve a word puzzle. The first team to complete this wins.
Reward: A trip to a luxury resort with a meal and an overnight stay.
Winners: Blue Team (Andrea Boehlke, Aubry Bracco, Brad Culpepper, Sarah Lacina, and Zeke Smith)

Challenge: High Step and Stack
The contestants must stack wooden blocks along a platform while avoiding tripping hazards. Once all of their blocks are stacked the contestants must knock them over like dominoes. The first contestant to topple all of their blocks, such that the final block hits a pan at the end, wins immunity.
Winner: Andrea Boehlke

Final Words

S34 zeke bw.png

It was smart for Andrea to come after me, because I was just about to come after Andrea. It was a great move worthy of the title "Game Changers". But playing this game, I have confronted so many fears and moved beyond boundaries that I've long kept in my life. It was a tremendously significant experience. I will forever be a better person because I've played Survivor.
