Immunity Challenge: Unchained
The tribe members were chained together and had to navigate through an obstacle course. After each station was completed, the tribes must gather a series of keys to unlock sections of a chain, which are blocking the finish line. One member of the tribe retrieved a flying fox which led to the key that unlocked the final gate for the rest of the tribe. First tribe to unlock all the sections of the chain and cross the finish line wins.

|“||(voting for Roger) He gives me so much advice, it really irritates me.||”|
|“||(voting for Roger) My advice to you is don't hunt what you can't kill.||”|
|“||(voting for Ryan) Ryan, I think you're a pretty good boy. The only problem is that you're still a boy. Sometimes, silence is golden.||”|
|“||(voting for Daniel) I didn't like your attitude at the Immunity Challenge today, and I didn't like the way it reflected upon the team.||”|
|“||Well, guys. Here we are. I guess when I knew I made Survivor I knew I was in for the biggest challenge of my life and, uh, I definitely got what I came in for and I definitely got what I expected. Um, I've learned a lot, though. I learned how to make a shelter and more importantly, I learned a lot about myself and, uh, how I perceive others and how they perceive me. You know, I thought I'd be mad but for the first time I just-- I really put things in perspective and it was a great journey. I had a lot of fun. I wish you guys all the best. So good luck to the winner and, uh, we'll see you around soon... and, uh, God bless.||”|
