Challenge: Fruit Flies
A tribe member would toss fruit through a hole in a wall to two members of their own tribe. An opposing tribe member would stand in front of the wall and use a club to try to knock away the fruit as it was thrown through the air. Once a piece of fruit is caught by a tribe member, it would have to be thrown through a hole in a second wall defended by a second opposing tribe member. The tribe that catches the most fruit by weight after five minutes would win.
Reward: A herb garden, salt, oil, chili sauce, and all fruit collected from the challenge
Winner: Kota (exiled Sugar Kiper)

Challenge: Cliff Bowling
One member from each tribe would roll a large wicker ball down a hill. A blindfolded tribe member at the bottom of the hill would attempt to block the opposing tribe's ball with a shield and the aid of a caller. Behind the blocker would be a row of seven goals of varying point values. If a tribe's ball made it past the blocker and into a goal, they would be awarded the specified number of points. The tribe with the most points after five rounds would win.
Winner: Kota

Voting Confessionals

(votes for G.C.) I'm only voting for you because you really want to go home and I am really sorry to see you go because I think you really are a cool person.

Sugar Kiper

(votes for Kelly) My vote is for Kelly, because I had to vote for somebody.

G.C. Brown

(votes for G.C.) You wanted to go home, so you get your wish.

Crystal Cox

(votes for G.C.) G.C., you were like a brother to me out here, and I feel that you know you're shot at the legs and, and you want to end your misery, so I gotta let you go, buddy. Take care.

Ken Hoang

(votes for G.C.) Man, I wish you all the best, I hope everything works out.

Ace Gordon

Final Words

For all the people who might say that I quit or I just gave up, call it what you want. The stabbin' and the lying, that's the part that I really didn't agree with. I never really expected it to be this hard. The vote for Kelly was a throwaway vote, she was the one who I connected with the least. I got the utmost respect for anybody who makes it, who even tries out, and is in my shoes.
