Challenge: Blind Build
Scattered around the jungle are 8 sets of materials. One person would guide blindfolded players around to collect the puzzle pieces. After collecting the pieces, they must construct an archeological tent. First tribe to complete the tent and get on their tribe mat wins.
Reward: Pillows, blankets and tarp
Challenge: Holding Court
Tribes would compete on an elevated court playing Mayan Courtball. They would compete in threesomes to pass the ball to each other to shoot at a target on the other side of the court. If a competitor caught the ball, they couldn't walk; they had to pass. If they did walk, they had to give the ball to the other tribe. First tribe to five points wins.

|“||(voting for Brianna) This is nothing personal, but we need a strong tribe to win these challenges, and we'll see you back home, home-girl.||”|
|“||Brianna, you fell off the net in the challenge. You leaned on the pole during the challenge. You were scared to pick up the ball in the challenge. I don't think you've played a contact sport in your entire life. You're a girly girl, and you need to go back to the shopping mall and leave the jungle.||”|
|“||My vote is for Brianna. It's based on a unified vote. But Brianna, you know as well as I know that we came into this right at the beginning with an alliance, and the fact that I'm voting out someone in my alliance brings me great concerns that there might be holes in our ship.||”|
|“||(voting for Brianna) You're a wonderful person, but I think you and I both know that you're ready to go home.||”|
|“||Brianna, you are a sweet, genuine person, and I'm so sorry that it's your time to go. But I have to do what's right for this tribe right now. We gotta win Immunity. I can't be on a losing streak anymore. I really liked getting to know you and hope we can hang on the outside. See ya.||”|
|“||Brianna, you're a great young girl. I just don't think this was your style of game. Best wishes.||”|
|“||Lydia, you have not once looked me in the eye when I've spoken to you, or even attempted at conversing when I start a conversation with you. It's either you or me tonight. I hope it's not me.||”|
|“||(voting for Brianna) I'm sure I'm going to have a lot of sarcastic things to say about people throughout this game when I vote them out, but you're a sweet heart, Rinny. You really are, through and through. I'm only voting for you because you are the weakest link on the tribe; you don't give it your all - Lydia does.||”|
|“||It was the survival of the fittest out there and I was the weakest link. You've got to be athletic to be out here. I gave it my all. I tried my hardest. I am an athletic person but not as athletic as these people. These are strong people. I was only out here for eight days but it was the best eight days of my life. The toughest but the best.||”|
Still in the Running
- According to Brian, the Immunity Challenge was actually won by the team to score ten points first, not the best of five matches.
- The episode title was said by Brandon describing how he's tempted to take a swim in the alligator-infested lake.
