Challenges

Challenge: Rock Block
The castaways would be divided into teams of three:

black, red, and white. The teams would have a row of eight team-colored ceramic tiles on frames belonging to them. Playing in rounds, one member from each team would throw a metal ball at the other two team's tiles to try to break them. When all eight tiles of a team were broken, the team would be out of the challenge. The last team with an intact tile would win.
Reward: A whitewater rafting trip down the Rio Novo and a picnic of sandwiches, chicken wings, brownies, watermelon, and potato chips.
Winners: Black Team (exiled Stephen Fishbach)

Challenge: Rope-a-Dope
The castaways would be attached to a rope which is thread through three of obstacles, for which the castaways would have to climb under, over, or around. The first three castaways to finish would move on to the next round. The next round's challenge would be the same, but with a single obstacle three levels high. The first castaway to complete the obstacle would win.
Winner: Tyson Apostol

Voting Confessionals

(votes for Brendan) The ancient Samurai used to say that "if you wanted to win the war, you had to cut off the head of the dragon". You, my friend, are the dragon, and I am the dragon slayer.

Coach Wade


(votes for Brendan) This is my wizard lightning shooting you back home; kapow!

Final Words

I knew at the merge that what would happen is that I'd become a big target. I didn't think it would happen quite that quickly, but it kinda feels good to be blindsided, because I wanted to blindside someone too, that's all part of the game. The thing that Sierra probably needs most right now is in my pocket right now, the Hidden Imunity Idol. But it doesn't matter, she'd be the next regardless to go in a matter of time.
