Challenges

Challenge: Man in the Box
One person from each tribe will race through a wood cube, while untangling rope and searching for two rings. When they reach the first ring, they will use it to retrieve a platform and drag it back. They will then head back into the cube to untangle the rest of the rope and get the second ring. It will be used to retrieve a second platform. The first person to retrieve both platforms and get them across the finish line wins reward for their tribe.
Reward: Flint and a bag of beans.
Winner: Hunahpu (Jeremy Collins chose Keith Nale to accompany Val Collins to Exile Island).

Challenge: Temple of Syrinx
Each tribe will race through a series of obstacles to get to the top of a giant tower. First both tribes will crawl under an obstacle. They will then work together to retrieve three bags, which contain pieces they will need to get to the top. For the first wall of the tower they will use a rope to get over it. For the second wall they will use pegs. For the third and final wall they will have only each other to help climb it. Once the entire tribe is at the top of the tower, four people from each tribe will solve a puzzle. The first tribe to finish wins immunity.
Addition Stipulation: Coyopa gets flint if they win the challenge.
Winner: Hunahpu

Final Words

Nadiya

This is the second time I'm out first. It sucks! I don't know if because of Amazing Race I had a target on my back. Anything's a possibility. You can have regrets in this game, but it is what it is. So I'm not surprised, but I'm definitely disappointed. I hope Natalie wins it all. It's gonna be hard without a Loved One there with her, but I'm gonna be rooting for her all the way.

Still In the Running
