One of Those 'Coach Moments' is the seventh episode of Survivor: Tocantins.
Challenge: When Pigs Fly
The tribes would have five minutes to build a barricade of poles tied together with ropes inside two frames of the opposing tribe. The tribes would then have to toss small ceramic pigs from tribemate to tribemate through the two frames, avoiding breaking them against the barricade or dropping them. The tribe which tosses the most number of intact pigs through the frames after ten minutes would win.
Reward: A trip to a waterfall and a barbecue with hamburgers.
Winner: Timbira (exiled Joe Dowdle; Joe chose Erinn Lobdell to accompany him.)
Challenge: Sandstone Shootout
Each tribe would use a slingshot to shoot out a tile in three towers full of sand. After a tile is broken, the sand would be released from the tower which would cause a bag of puzzle pieces to be released and the tile at the next tower to be uncovered. The same tribe member could do all of the shooting with the slingshot or different shooters may be substituted. Once all three bags of puzzle pieces were collected, two tribe members would have to assemble the puzzle to win the challenge.

|“||(votes for Taj) From the moment I met you, I knew I was gonna like you a lot. Um, hope you have a great time in Tennessee, and I'll see you soon.||”|
|“||(votes for Sydney) Love you, girl.||”|
|“||(votes for Sydney) You're a ray of sunshine around camp, but I know there are stormy skies ahead. I'm really sorry. I'm gonna miss you.||”|
|“||I'm pissed, I was voted off. Jalapao is in trouble if there's a merge, they are down the numbers and I don't really see anyone from Timbira switching over, but Taj might try to do something. It was a great experience and being able to look back on it, and say that I got to do that is a blessing in itself, so I feel very lucky.||”|
Still in the Running
- The episode title was said by Brendan, annoyed with Coach's behavior.
