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.

Voting Confessionals

(votes for G.C.) I'm only voting for you because you really want to go home and I am really sorry to see you go because I think you really are a cool person.

Sugar Kiper

(votes for Kelly) My vote is for Kelly, because I had to vote for somebody.

G.C. Brown

(votes for G.C.) You wanted to go home, so you get your wish.

Crystal Cox

(votes for G.C.) G.C., you were like a brother to me out here, and I feel that you know you're shot at the legs and, and you want to end your misery, so I gotta let you go, buddy. Take care.

Ken Hoang

(votes for G.C.) Man, I wish you all the best, I hope everything works out.

Ace Gordon

(votes for G.C.) In life, and in any situation, it's all what you make of it. Here's your wish.

Kelly Czarnecki

(votes for G.C.) G.C., it's just not working out for you here anymore, so, it's time for you to go buddy.

Matty Whitmore

Final Words

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.
