Shane sits out. Like "When It Rains," but a tribal challenge. Each tribe member holds a 7-kg sandbag over their head, tied to a trough of water. Each person can drop out by handing their sandbag to a tribemate, but if a bag drops, the trough tips, and the tribe gets soaked (and loses). Results: Anita out (~3 min, to Robbie), Jackie (~10 min, to Brian), Paige (to Zach), Shonee (to Benji), Monika (to Steve), Fenella (~20 min to Benji), leaving every Contender guy with two bags.

First team to place their ball wins. The Champions are first to the maze, make it all the way to the too, then drop their ball once before the Contenders even start. Champions win.

While both tribes eventually have their ropes tied together and are climbing the ramp, the Contenders win. But... the reward has to be shared: People eat one at a time, and decide how much to leave (as in HvHvH). Benji finds an idol clue written on the plate under the pile of nachos.

Finally, tribes must disassemble the cart, and the puller (Heath, Sam) will use the tires to solve a gear puzzle. Winning tribe also gets to attend losing tribe's Tribal Council.
