Attached to a rope, the final six must run down a swampy course (going over and under a series of hitching posts as necessary) to a color-coded set of boxes. They will then untie a box, open it, choose the correct statement about Chinese inventions from two options displayed, and take the corresponding key back to the start to open a lock if correct.

Voting Confessionals

(votes for Erik) Erik, you know I think you're fabulous, and you've played this game with a lot of heart and honesty and trust. I admire it. Um, you know why you're getting this vote tonight, and I'm sorry. And I hope we can be friends later. Thank you. Bye.

–Amanda


(votes for Erik) It's either gonna be me or you tonight, I'm not ready to go, so G.

–Todd


(votes for Todd) Um, sorry, man. This is purely strategic, and I made a promise to an old friend.

–Peih-Gee


(votes for Erik) You're the nicest person in the world, and I feel really bad. I almost hope you have like a little trick up your sleeve. Sorry.

–Courtney


(votes for Todd) Too many people said they couldn't trust you, and you're my only hope to swing the vote. Sorry.

–Erik


(votes for Erik) Erik, I really like you. I'm sorry I have to do this. It's probably the biggest mistake I'm gonna make in this game. Good luck to you, man.

–Denise



Final Words

I wanted to go all the way to the top in this game, but, unfortunately, today was my day. I think I can always look back and say, "Well, I could have done this differently or I could have done that," but I'm mentally and physically and emotionally exhausted. I made it 33 days. I'm really proud of myself. The five remaining contestants are going to batlle it out, and I'm really curious to see who comes out on top.
