Challenge: First to Shore
Hidden on the island across the lagoon are two Individual Immunity Idols, one for each tribe. The first person from each tribe to find the tribe's Idol is safe at their first visit to Tribal Council.
Winners: Kathy Sleckman and Yau-Man Chan

Challenge: Reinventing The Wheel
Both teams will race to assemble four puzzle wheels and attach them to a cart, in which two of their tribemates will ride. Pushing the cart through a series of obstacles to a finish platform, the tribes will then disassemble the puzzle wheels and use them to complete a turnstile. Finally, they'll wind the turnstile to raise a fire wok, igniting their tribal cauldron. First tribe to finish the task would win the challenge.
Reward: Flint
Winner: Airai

Voting Confessionals

Complete list of confessionals are from CBS' YouTube account. [2]

(votes for Jon) You asked for it.


(votes for Jon) Jonny, I have to vote for you. You asked me to, and I'm happy to oblige. I wish you, your beautiful girlfriend, and your baby the best of luck, and...good luck to you.


(votes for Jon) Thanks for the advice, and I wish you all the best in the world man.


(votes for Jon) I really respect your decision, and I wish you the best of luck.


(votes for Jon) I'm doing what you asked.


(votes for Jon) Alright, I'm voting for you because this is what you wanted. Go home and take care of your baby's mama. You're invited to the cool kids' dinner when we get back in town.


(votes for Ozzy) Go win, kid.


(votes for Jon) Well, only you know what's best for you, and if you feel this is best for you, good luck.


(votes for Jon) Jonny, goodbye. It's been good knowing you. I'm glad I got to know you. I wish you the best of luck as a father. I am a father of two very happy, very well-adjusted teenage daughters. My wife and I raised them right. Need any advice on how to raise a baby, raise a baby to a happy and well-adjusted child, I will be very happy to give you some advice. Thank you.


(votes for Jon) Fairplay, I'm sad you're going. Over the past few days I've realized we could be great friends. I'm gonna miss you a lot around camp. I can't wait to meet Piper.


Final Words

Well guys, I didn't win a million dollars, but I got more than a million dollars of baby waiting for me at home. I love you, Michelle, and I love you, Piper. I'll see you soon. I definitely feel I did the right thing. My head's going crazy right now. Pretty cool becoming a man on a camera or at least becoming a daddy. I think I did that over the last three days. So let's keep the string going. Having those emotions and hormones run through my body was pretty surreal. Wasn't quite ready for that. Usually Jonny Fairplay's in cruise control. Not so much this go-around. Hey, you know what, if it makes me a better person, I'm happy. I think I've done a million degree change since the last time I was here. Last time I was the biggest bad guy ever, and this time I'm a responsible adult people like, some even love. What's going on in the world? Anyone who doesn't believe me, I'm registered at, and I'll send you pictures of whatever you send me, to show you how happy we are. No regrets at all. I'm the luckiest person in the world, I got a second chance to do this, even for a few days. I was happy to be asked.
