Free Agent is the sixth episode of Survivor: South Pacific.
The castaways would play a variation of shuffleboard. The castaways would start the game with four pucks a piece on the board and would slide another puck to knock their opponent's pucks off the board. The last castaway to have a puck on the board would win.
Winner: Christine Shields Markoski
| Redemption Island|
Challenge: Losing Face
Three castaways from each tribe would assemble a wheelbarrow and then push the wheelbarrow around a series of obstacles. Along the way, they would stop at two stations and collect a load of coconuts. At the end of the obstacle course, the three tribe members would dump out the coconuts into a box. The three other castaways would then disassemble the wheelbarrow and reassemble it into a sling shot. They would use the coconuts as ammunition for the slingshot to knock down six targets. The first tribe to knock all six of their targets down would win.
Reward: A trip to the "Sliding Rocks" - a local tourist spot waterfall where people can slide down the rocks into a pool below - and a picnic lunch.
