You're Going to Want That Tooth is the fifth episode of Survivor: Tocantins.
Challenge: Dizziness As Usual
A tribe member would sit on a spinning platform at one end of the playing field. Another tribe member would start at the other end and race across to the platform, grab a rope, and pull it back to the starting line. The rope would be wound around the base of the platform, causing the platform to spin as the rope is unwound. When the "puller" returned to the finish line, the sitting tribe member, now dizzy, would have to race across a balance beam to the finish line. The tribes would race against each other in rounds with the first dizzy tribe member across the finish line scoring one point for their tribe. The first tribe to score three points would win.
Reward: A trip to a cafe with coffee, fresh water, pastries, cookies, muffins, and a toilet with toilet paper.
Challenge: Water Mortar
Two tribemates from each tribe would alternate launching balls from a slingshot while the remaining four tribemates have to catch the balls with handheld nets. Catching a ball would score one point for their tribe. The first tribe to score five points would win.
