Tribe members would have to climb across three A-frames, each being taller than the previous one, while carrying coils of rope. They will then use the ropes to pull a heavy crate across a wooden frame. Two tribe members would then have to use the puzzle pieces inside the crate to solve a puzzle.The tribes could change solvers, but they must stay at only two at a time. The first tribe to finish the puzzle wins.
Reward: Survivor tool kit along with materials that will improve shelter waiting for the winning tribe at their camp.

|“||Ugh… I feel like I didn't really get to seize my second chance. I struggled to change in a lot of key ways to make this game work for me. I was in a totally fine position until I went crazy and blew up my game. I had an awesome opening act and then… killed myself.||”|

Behind the Scenes
- In an interview, Jeff Probst reveals that Entertainment Weekly columnist Dalton Ross picked the location of the Hidden Immunity Idol for this episode's Reward/Immunity Challenge. The idol would have been hidden on the corner of the top of the third A-frame in the challenge.
- However, the idol was not hidden because no one from the Bayon tribe found the clue to the idol.
- As of this episode, every single season that has aired comprising entirely of returning players has had one tribe attend the first two Tribal Councils.
- This episode marks the second time in her Survivor career that Ciera Eastin has been the first member of her tribe to sit out a challenge.
- The title was in reference to Joe Anglim being able to craft anything in a similar fashion to MacGyver, a show that ran for seven seasons on the ABC network. Stephen Fishbach said the title during a confessional.
