Challenge: Offer It Up
Each player is provided a one-arm balance adjusted for their height, with a small disk at the far end. During the challenge, the host will call out specific dishware that the player must take and stack on the far end of the balance. Should any part of a player's stack fall, that player is out of the challenge. Last person standing wins, sending the other two players home.
Winner: Ozzy Lusth
Challenge: Second Chance
Players will stand on their mats and pick up sandbags, throwing them one at a time landing on the boxes. The first three to get a sandbag on each of their three boxes moves on to the next round. The final three moving onto the giant slingshots will be aiming at three different targets. The first player to knock over all three targets wins immunity.
Reward: A shower and a massage to be waiting back at camp
Winner: Albert Destrade (shared reward with Coach Wade and gave up his own reward to John Cochran)
