Challenges

Challenge: Ballin' A Jack
The castaways will each stand on a small block while stabilizing a ball against an overhanging piece of wood. If at any point they lose their concentration or their balance, the ball will drop and they are then out of the challenge. The last person left standing wins reward.
Reward: King sized bed delivered to camp complete with an Italian meal and dessert.
Winner: Natalie Anderson (shared with Jaclyn Schultz and Jon Misch, exiled Alec Christy)

Challenge: A Bit Tipsy
The players will each pull on a rope, which balances their wobbly table. While trying to keep their table balanced, they will race out to collect a series of wooden blocks. They will bring the blocks back one at a time and place them upright on the table. If their table wobbles and the blocks fall, then they will have to reset them before heading back out. The first person to place all ten of their blocks wins Immunity.
Winner: Jon Misch

Final Words

Alec

I would definitely say that my ambition exceeded my talent in this game. I clearly wasn't good in any of the challenges and the odds were against me for a long time in the game and I just kept fighting and I'm not going further but I gave it my all. I didn't win but at least I beat Drew so that counts as a win for me.
