Challenge: Letter Hunt
The tribe had to race to solve a word puzzle. First, they had to collect a series of placards, each bearing an English letter, which they would have to acquire at successive stations along a course. Once they had gathered all the letters, they would have to unscramble them to form two mystery words. First person to spell out the words correctly would win.
Reward: A Chevrolet Trailblazer and a full Thai dinner and massage.
Winner: Ted Rogers, Jr. (shared with Helen Glover)

Challenge: Step on Up
The Survivors would start at the base of a ten-step staircase. Each step of the staircase was part of a jigsaw, the pieces of which lay in a jumble at the foot of the staircase. The Survivors had to gather their missing pieces and build their way to the top of the stairs to the finishing platform. First person to have successfully completed their staircase and climb to the top would win.
Winner: Brian Heidik

(voting for Ted) You're a fierce competitor and so am I, which means if it's down to you or me, it's gonna be you before me.

Final Words

This has been a long and wonderful trip. I was truly blessed to make it this far. Sure, I would have loved to have won, but it's okay. I sucked it all in, and I have no regrets. To my baby Morgan, I did this to show you that nothing beats a failure but a try.

Ted Rogers, Jr.
