Challenge: Pot Head
Each castaway would stand on a wooden cube with a pottery pot on their head. If they dropped their pot, they would be out. If there is no winner after an hour, the remaining castaways would race up the ruins to the top. If they dropped their pot during the race, they would be out. First one to the top without breaking their pot wins.

|“||Brandon, unfortunately, this is a numbers game, but you're a hell of a dude, and I'm glad I got the pleasure to meet you. Good luck.||”|
|“||(voting for Brandon) You're a tough competitor, and I'm very proud of the way you played this game. Good luck to you. You're a great person.||”|
|“||(voting for Brandon) I have the utmost respect for you. We played together, and we fought together. You're going out as a threat. I hope that means a lot to you, 'cause you're not sticking around because you're weak and people are keeping you along. I'm sorry you had to go; maybe if we had met and been on other teams together, we could've allied. You're a good man. I hope you do well in life.||”|
|“||Brandon, I respect you so much. You're a great guy. You're a threat, though, and you don't play into my strategy, so you need to go so I can get further in this game. Good job out there.||”|
|“||Jamie, I really do think you're a good guy down deep; my heart just says I have to vote for you tonight. I can't vote for anybody else. I'll help you anyway I can in the future. Take care.||”|
|“||(voting for Brandon) This isn't a game of absolute right and absolute wrong. For me, tonight, this is the right decision.||”|
|“||Jamie, too many times you've showed disrespect, and I don't think you're as deserving to be here, but I do respect you, man.||”|
|“||(voting for Brandon) I think you said it best when you said you hadn't changed much in this game; probably, because you don't need to. You're a great guy the way you are, and I hope you have a really great future. Nice to get to know you.||”|
|“||(voting for Jamie) You talk about having Southern pride. Well, part of having Southern pride is being a Southern gentleman. And, no, you don't have any class at all.||”|
|“||Jamie, you're such a little peckerwood. It should be you going home tonight, not Brandon.||”|
|“||I played the game I came out here to play. I think I played a pretty good game. A pretty straight-up game. I wasn't all about the money. I was playing the game for myself. You can take me out of this game before you can take my pride. I think I did a pretty good job of that. I can walk away and take something good with me.||”|
