This Is Why You Play Survivor is the sixth episode of Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers.
Challenge: A-Tension Span
Two members of each tribe will race out to a set of poles. They will then use poles to hold a buoy over a balance beam. The buoy will then be used to release a boat, where they will pull themselves by a rope to a platform. Using a slingshot, they must use a rope ball to hit two targets. The first two tribes to knock down their targets win.
Reward: Ten pizzas and soft drinks (1st place); one pizza (2nd place)
Winners (in order of finish): Soko and Yawa
Challenge: Discy Business
All members of the tribe will have to pull on rope on a balance beam to suspend a disc. They will have to stack blocks spelling "IMMUNITY" on the disc, while pulling on the rope. If anybody falls off their balance beam or their block stack falls, they must start over. The first two tribes to finish their stack win.
Winners (in order of finish): Yawa and Levu

|“||(voting for JP) I have to take out the strong.||”|
|“||I guess I, uhm-- let a little twerp like Ryan ruin my whole game, and Chrissy is the liar of all liars. If she lies this way the rest of the game, she is going to win. I came to this game thinking that I was going to play all my head, and maybe I did that a little in my heart, maybe I trusted people too much. That's what got me.||”|
