Ep.1 RC: One for All
After being divided by chain pick, led off by elders Bob and Gillian, the newly formed Kota and Fang tribe face off for reward. Entire tribe must race through a valley and up a steep hill. First person from each tribe to finish wins an individual immunity idol, good at their first Tribal Council. First complete tribe to cross the finish line wins an extra bag of corn and beans. Marcus are GC first finishers, Michelle right behind GC for Fang. Rest of Kota arrives together, quickly, Fang slowly. Kota wins the extra food.
Ep.1 IC: Temptation Valley
Six tribe members are tethered together, and must cross a swamp, a net obstacle, go over and under hitching posts, then dig up three bags of puzzle pieces from a sand pit. They then take the three bags to the three puzzle people (Bob, Sugar, Paloma; Randy, Susie, Gillian). Kota takes a huge lead in the digging phase, gets their third bag before Fang even has one. Kota completes their puzzle just as Fang finally arrives with their bags. Kota wins immunity and flint.
TC1 - Michelle voted out (8-1), 17 left.
Ep.2 RC/IC: Lemme Go Rock 'n' Roll
Paloma sits out. Challenge: as seen in Africa (more or less). Both tribes must roll a large "boulder" through a series of gates, and must retrieve two keys along the way, to open a final locked gate. First tribe to reach the finish line and place their boulder in the cradle wins immunity and fishing gear. Results: It's fairly close, but Fang loses again.
Dan returns from exile.

Ep.3 RC: Kicking and Screaming
As first seen in Cook Islands. Ken sits out for Fang; Corinne, Jacquie, Kelly sit out for Kota. A pair of contestants from one tribe must pull an opposing contestant off of a pole, through the sand, and across a finish line to score a point. First tribe to two points wins comfort items (blankets, pillows, etc.). Rd.1: Marcus/Charlie vs. Dan; Matty/GC vs. Ace - Kota scores (K1, F0). Rd.2: Crystal/Randy vs. Paloma; Sugar/Bob vs. Susie - Fang scores (K1, F1). Rd.3: Marcus/Bob vs. Dan; Crystal/Matty vs. Ace - Fang scores, and wins 2-1!
Ep.3 idol: Sugar
Sugar arrives at Exile, and chooses the idol clue option. She quickly solves the one that stumped Dan, but it turns out the idol is not in the sandy crater, that's just another clue. She ends up following three more clues total, eventually grabbing the idol.
| Day 9
Ep.3 IC: Lake Launch
Paloma, Sugar sit out. Six tribe members must slide down a water slide, go out in the water to retrieve a number tile, and run it back up the hill to the combo lock/crate. One person (Bob, Ken) must use the tiles to solve a combo lock, unlock a crate, retrieve an axe, and chop a rope to raise the tribe flag. Kota is first to retrieve all their number tiles, but Ken solves the combo faster than Bob, giving Fang the win.
TC3 - Paloma voted out (7-2), 15 left.

Ep.4 tribe swap
Contestants are given pads to write on, and told to rank their tribemates from first to last. Probst then averages the rankings, and everyone stands on poles from #1 to #8, in view of the other tribe. Orders: Fang - 1. Matty, 2. Dan, 3. Randy, 4. Crystal, 5. Ken, 6. GC, 7. Susie; Kota - 1. Marcus, 2. Ace, 3. Bob, 4. Charlie, 5. Jacquie, 6. Corinne, 7. Sugar, 8. Kelly. Probst tells the tribes they're now picking new tribes. Matty and Marcus remain with their original tribes, and lead off a new chain pick.
Ep.4 IC: Big Oar Deal
Each contestant has an inner tube-sized "raft," and a paddle that doubles as a lacrosse stick. They must race in the water to the ball, pass it to each other, and try to score a goal. First tribe to three points wins. Ace, Bob play goalkeeper for the first point. Results: Marcus passes to Randy, Randy scores! (K1, F0). Marcus passes to Randy again, this time with no keeper, Randy scores again! (K2, F0). Matty in as keeper, Randy shoots, misses. Dan shoots, misses. Randy shoots again, scores. Kota wins, 3-0!
