Ep.1 F20 IC: Water Slaughter

Ep.1 F20 IC: Water Slaughter

Held immediately after arrival and tribe assignments. As seen in Caramoan's game-opening RC.

Ep.1 F19 IC: Blue Lagoon Bustle

Ep.1 F19 IC: Blue Lagoon Bustle

Ep.1 F19 IC: Blue Lagoon Bustle

Sandra sits out. Mostly as seen in Blood vs. Water. Tribes must push a boat into the water, paddle out to a floating station, where one person (Sarah, Rob) jumps off and unties a bag. They then paddle to a series of water obstacles, where everyone disembarks and must cross the obstacles (crates, roller, net), and go to the beach. One person (Yul, Adam) opens the bag, removing three discs with numbers on them, and uses them to solve a combo lock. Once open one person (Tyson/Wendell; Jeremy) tosses rings at three paddles. First tribe to land all three wins. Dakal has a huge lead, but blows it, and Sele wins, thanks to Jeremy's ring tossing skills.

Ep.1 idol: Sandra

Ep.1 idol: Sandra

In her first day on Edge of Extinction, Natalie receives a quest, directing her to the last place she can see the sunset, in order to earn a fire token. She climbs to the top of the island, and finds an idol (good for 3 Tribals) she must "sell" to someone on the IC-losing tribe, for the low, low price of 1 fire token. She offers it to Sandra, who happily accepts.

Ep.2 Sele idol: Denise

Ep.2 Sele idol: Denise

While collecting wood together, Ben offers Denise advice for finding idols. They both look, and Denise finds one. It turns out to be a split idol, where Denise has to give someone else half of it by sundown, or else it loses its power. After Ben suggest they could use that half to build an alliance with someone, Denise gives Adam the second half.

Ep.2 advantage: Safety without power

Ep.2 advantage: Safety without power

Natalie and Amber find a clue on Edge that talks about reflection. They wander aimlessly all over the island before giving up. Natalie then goes to the water well (hinted at in the clue) and finds the advantage: It allows someone to leave Tribal and return to camp right before the voting. She sells it Jeremy (of course) for one fire token.

Jeremy buys advantage from Natalie.
Day 6
(May 27)

Ep.2 RC/IC: Draggin' the Dragon

Ep.2 IC: Draggin' the Dragon

Ep.2 RC/IC: Draggin' the Dragon

As originally seen in Cagayan's Ep1 RC/IC. Seven people must push a heavy cart along a twisty track, stopping at three stations where one person (Tyson; Ben) knocks a key off a high pole, which unlocks a heavy crate of puzzle pieces. Once all three crates are on the cart, it must be disassembled, pushed through a barrier, then reassembled and pushed to the puzzle station. There, two people (Sandra/Sophie; Rob/Denise) must solve a three-part, vertical circular dragon puzzle. Dakal takes a huge lead heading into the puzzle. Rob forces Denise to organize the pieces before starting on the second part of the puzzle, making Sele fall even further behind. Dakal wins easily, also gets a spice rack.

← Previous: Ep.2 advantage Next: Ep.3 advantage →

Ep2 RC/IC: "Draggin' the Dragon" - Dakal wins.

TC2 - Danni voted out (8-1), 17 left.

Ep.3 advantage: Steal-a-vote

Ep.3 advantage: Steal-a-vote

Natalie, Amber, and Danni receive notes wrapped in bamboo with "pretty shells." The note just shows a distinctive tree Natalie and Amber recognize from the top of the island. The three go up there and find a combination lock, and a note telling them they've already received all the info they need. Amber tries numbers from the crates, but Natalie realizes the shells were in groups separated by knots. She counts them, enters the combo, and gets an advantage to sell: A chance to go to the other tribe's camp and grab a vote steal advantage at night. She sells it to Sarah, who (with Tony's camouflaging assistance) sneaks into Sele and gets the advantage from their torches. For this chance, Sarah gives Natalie her one fire token.

← Previous: Ep.2 IC Next: Ep.3 IC →

Sarah buys advantage from Natalie.

Ep.3 IC: Along the Watch Tower

Ep.3 IC: Along the Watch Tower

Ep.3 IC: Along the Watch Tower

Sandra sits out. Tribe must cross obstacles, dig up a ladder, then one person (Tony; Jeremy) climbs that ladder to unwind a rope/monkey's paw from a high bar. Then someone (Wendell; Rob/Ben) must land that in a hook, and the tribe uses it to scale a tower. Finally, two people (Sarah, Sophie; Rob, Michele) must solve a tree puzzle. Dakal gets a huge lead thanks to Wendell and Tony, barely hold on with the puzzle. Dakal wins immunity and chicken kabobs.

← Previous: Ep.3 advantage Next: Ep.4 Edge of Extinction →

Ep.4 Edge of Extinction

Ep.4 Edge of Extinction

At Edge of Extinction, Amber returns with news of the episode's task: The Edge denizens must hike up the mountain, retrieve one log, bring it back down to the camp, then repeat, for a total of 20 logs, total. Everyone who finishes by sundown will receive one fire token. Natalie sets a speedy pace, and the others try to keep up, except Danni, who opts for a slow-and-steady approach. Ethan faints and requires medical attention, but all four eventually finish. Natalie, Amber, and Danni accompany Ethan on his final trip up and down, in a show of solidarity.

← Previous: Ep.3 IC Next: Ep.4 IC →

EoE - fire tokens for everyone, as long as they almost die first.

Ep.4 IC: Beyond the Wheel

Tony, Sandra sit out. Four people swim out from a dock, pulling a boat, carrying the three key grabbers (Nick, Kim, Sophie; Adam, Parvati, Denise), as seen in the Edge of Extinction Ep3 IC. Keys grabbed: Denise-0, Sophie-0, Nick-2, Adam-3, Parvati-0, Kim-1. Once all three keys are grabbed, they swim the boat to a final dock, where two people (Nick/Sarah; Rob/Kim) work a vertical ship's compass puzzle (as seen in the Cagayan F4 IC and David vs. Goliath Ep5 IC, which Nick won). Sele struggles mightily on the key stage, but Adam perseveres. Then Sele comes back on the puzzle, wins immunity and chickens.

The tribes arrive at the sand spit where the first challenge took place, see that Tyson was voted out, then promptly drop their buffs.

Ep.5 idol: Sophie

Ep.5 idol: Sophie

Placed in a brand-new camp, the five members of Yara quickly realize there's probably a new idol hidden somewhere near camp, and everyone starts looking. Sophie quickly finds it, and it's another split idol, as were the first two. She shares half with Sarah. Sarah gives Sophie back the half-idol before they attend Tribal Council, two days later.

← Previous: Ep.5 swap  Next: Ep.5 IC →

Ep.5 IC: Block in a Hard Place

Tribes must cross a series of obstacles. Then 2-3 people (Nick, Yul, Wendell; Rob, Ben; Kim, Tony, Jeremy) toss sandbags to knock four large blocks off a ledge, then two people (Wendell, Parvati; Adam, Sophie; Jeremy, Sandra) must use those blocks to solve the four-block puzzle from "Sea Crates" in Samoa. Yara has a huge lead heading into the puzzle, Dakal way behind. But new Sele finishes first, followed by Dakal. Somehow, Yara loses.

Ep.6 Edge: Idol nullifier for peanut butter

Ep.6 Edge: Idol nullifier for peanut butter

The Edge of Extinction people learn a new trinket is hidden somewhere on the island. While the others immediately race to the top of the mountain, Tyson discerns from the clue that it's probably near the tide line. He spots it, pretends to pee as cover, and grabs an idol nullifier. He sells it back to Parvati for a fire token, then immediately spends that token on a giant tub of peanut butter (for himself).

← Previous: Ep.5 IC  Next: Ep.6 IC →

Tyson finds idol nullifier, sells to Parvati, buys PB.

Ep.7 Edge of Extinction

Ep.7 Edge of Extinction

After Sandra departed immediately upon arrival the night before, the Edge residents are told there are four fire tokens scattered around the island, where the trail ends. Tyson finds one (wrapped) just sitting on a rock. After consulting with the others, the remaining three appear to still be unfound. But it turns out Boston Rob found all three, before Tyson even found his first.

Ep.7 IC: Dishwalla

Ep.7 IC: Dishwalla

Ep.7 IC: Dishwalla

As seen in David vs. Goliath (where Nick's Jabeni tribe lost, massively). Contestants must carry a giant dish across obstacles to a water tank, put water in it, carry the dish and water back across the obstacles, and pour the remaining water into a tank. When the tank is full enough, a bag of puzzle pieces drops, and two people (Ben, Sophie; Wendell, Michele; Denise, Jeremy) must complete a circular logo puzzle in the dish. Yara takes only one very slow trip with the dish, and has a slight lead heading into the puzzle. They finish it first. Sele and Dakal are neck-and-neck throughout, and complete the puzzle within seconds of each other. Dakal finishes second, sending Sele to Tribal.

← Previous: Ep.7 Edge  Next: Ep.8 RC →

Ep.8 RC: Back in the Saddle

(Pre-challenge: Amber gives Rob her token, he and Natalie each buy an idol plus advantage; rest buy one advantage.) Advantage: Users don't have to dig up their string (Rob, Tyson, Danni, Ethan, Natalie). Contestants must cross a net, untying three bags of sticks, then dig up (or not) a bag of string. Then tie sticks together to retrieve a key from behind a gate. (Rob is first through this). Final stage: Snake maze. Order to maze: Rob, Tyson, Nat, Parv, Danni, Yul, Ethan, Amber. (Allegedly) ends up being a tight race between Tyson and Rob. Tyson wins, rejoins the game. All reached the snake maze eventually, and race was to two balls, not one (as aired), so impossible to know who was really second, third, etc.
