Challenge: Turtle Roll
The loved ones (not the Survivors) would stand around the far edge of a large puzzle, comprised of six-sided individual pieces. One at a time, the competitors would step from one piece to the next. As they stepped off a piece, they had to flip it over, revealing the color green. Taking turns, they would continue moving on to new pieces without the option of stepping back on a green piece. Once a person was trapped, unable to step on an "open" piece, they were out. The last person left on the board would win
Reward: An overnight stay with their friend/family at Soliantu beach.
Winner: Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien
Challenge: Sands of Time
Each Survivor recognized their name emblazoned on an hourglass-shaped structure dotted with different shaped tiles. Behind those tiles were piles of sand. At the base of each structure was a small tiki. Using the slingshots, the Survivors had to fire rocks at the tile panels of another tribe member's structure, releasing sand, which would cover the tiki. Once a Survivor's tiki was completely covered with sand, that person would be eliminated from the game. The Survivor whose tiki remained uncovered would win.

|“||I always say knowledge is power and all the knowledge that I accumulated in every conversation I had, every event I took part in, is knowledge that I will take from Tribal Council over to the jury and judge the people who have judged me tonight. So remember, the day of reckoning comes for all. Give me about six weeks and I'm ready to do this all over again. And that's about it, that's all I've got to say.||”|
