Challenge: Fruit Flies
A tribe member would toss fruit through a hole in a wall to two members of their own tribe. An opposing tribe member would stand in front of the wall and use a club to try to knock away the fruit as it was thrown through the air. Once a piece of fruit is caught by a tribe member, it would have to be thrown through a hole in a second wall defended by a second opposing tribe member. The tribe that catches the most fruit by weight after five minutes would win.
Reward: A herb garden, salt, oil, chili sauce, and all fruit collected from the challenge

Challenge: Cliff Bowling
One member from each tribe would roll a large ball made of interwoven sticks down a hill. A blindfolded tribe member at the bottom of the hill would attempt to block the opposing tribe's ball with a shield and the aid of a caller. Behind the blocker would be a row of seven goals of varying point values. If a tribe's ball made it past the blocker and into a goal, they would be awarded the specified number of points. The tribe with the most points after five rounds would win.

|“||For all the people who might say that I quit or I just gave up, call it what you want. the stabbin' and the lying, that's the part that I really didn't agree with. I never really expected it to be this hard. The vote for Kelly was a throwaway vote, she was the one who I connected with the least. I got the utmost respect for anybody who makes it, who even tries out, and is in my shoes.||”|
