Challenge: Got to Choose
The castaways must race under an obstacle and retrieve a war club. After completing the obstacle, they will have to maneuver through a rope tunnel. The tribes have the option of using a shortcut, thereby reducing the number of rope obstacles to cross. After this, the castaways must walk over a balance beam. The tribes can use a second shortcut to enlarge the beam, making it much easier to cross. The tribes will then carry a crate to the finish. Two members from each tribe will then have to solve a puzzle. If a tribe had used zero shortcuts, their puzzle will contain 50 pieces. If the tribe had used one shortcut, their puzzle will contain 60 pieces. If the tribe had used both shortcuts, their puzzle will contain 70 pieces. The first tribe to finish their puzzle wins.
