Ep.1 RC: Water Slaughter

Ep.1 RC: Water Slaughter

Ep.1 RC: Water Slaughter

As also seen as the opening RC in Caramoan. In pairs, contestants must race over shallow water to a post, grab a life preserver off it, then attempt to take the ring to their tribe post. Whoever touches their post while also touching the ring scores a point for their tribe. First tribe to 3 points wins flint. Results: Rd.1 - Steffi, Palesa d. Killarney, Thoriso (M1, Y0). Rd.2 - Dante, Chappies d. Seamus, Felix (M2, Y0). Rd.3: Tevin, Pinty d. Tejan, Toni (M2, Y1). Rd.4: Marian, Meryl d. Tania, Shona (M3, Y1). Masu wins!

Day 2
(Jan. 20)

Ep.1 Outpost: Idol choice

Ep.1 Outpost: Idol choice

Ep.1 Outpost: Idol choice

Each tribe is told to choose two people to send off to make a decision. Masu sends Shane and Steffi; Yontau sends Thoriso and Seamus. Once they arrive at The Outpost, the four are told to discuss what one person they wish to give an idol — which must be used at the first Tribal Council. If the recipient is on the IC-losing tribe, it's a normal idol. If they are on the winning tribe, they will visit and observe Tribal Council, then play it for someone before the votes are read. The results of the vote are not shown until the next episode, at the IC.

← Previous: Ep.1 RC Next: Ep.2 IC →

Ep.1 Outpost: - Four people, four votes, one idol.
Day 3
(Jan. 21)

Ep.2 IC: Obstacles, ladders

Ep.2 IC: Obstacles, ladders

Ep.2 IC: Obstacles, ladders

Before the challenge, Nico reveals Outpost votes: Tevin-2, Tanya-2. Tevin and Tanya draw rocks, Tevin's is the black rock, so he receives the Outpost Idol, which he will play at the Ep2 Tribal, regardless of whether his tribe wins or loses. Challenge: Tribes must break through a reed wall, then one person (Tevin; PK) use a monkey fist to release a set of puzzle pieces. They must maneuver those pieces onto a wall, where two people (Tevin, Dino; Chappies, Meryl) use them to make a staircase down the other side. Once there, they must either unlock a set of 5 padlocks (PK) or untie a set of 20 knots (Pinty) to release two ladders. They then use those ladders as platforms or ladders to cross several structures, finally lighting a wok. First tribe to do so wins. Results: PK is slow with monkey fist, so Yontau has an early lead. They come close again at ladder release stage, until PK struggles with final padlock. Yontau then has an insurmountable lead, wins.

← Previous: Ep.1 Outpost Next: Ep.3 RC/IC →

Ep2 IC: (Obstacles, ladders) - Yontau wins.

Ep.3 IC: Hitching a Ride

Ep.3 IC: Hitching a Ride

Ep.3 IC: Hitching a Ride

Shona sits out. First part is as seen in South Pacific and SA: Champions. One at a time, five people (Pinty, Dino, Tevin, Phil, Seamus; Toni, Meryl, Steffi, Shane, Dante) must take a life preserver on a rope out into the water, unclip a fish trap containing two balls, then their tribe turns a giant winch to pull them back in. When all five sets of balls are retrieved, one person at a time must shoot them up to land in an overhead rack. First tribe to land all 10 balls wins fishing gear and immunity. Yontau has a 1-trap lead as they finish the water part. Balls landed: Yontau: Tevin-3, Seamus-4, Dino-3; Masu: Shane-4, Dante-1, PK-0 (swapping in as challenge ends). Yontau wins!

← Previous: Ep.2 IC Next: Ep.3 idol →

Ep3 RC/IC: "Hitching a Ride" - Yontau wins.

Ep.3 idol: Seamus

Ep.3 idol: Seamus

Ep.3 idol: Seamus

First Thoriso wants to look for the idol, and tries to put people off the scent by telling everyone it's already been found. When pressed on who found it, she blurts out "Tevin." Upon hearing this, Tevin is understandably upset, but works his way out of the bind by organizing a tribe-wide idol search. Eventually, Seamus finds the idol and keeps it, in front of everyone. It's a limited-time idol, good only through the first three Tribals of the season (one of which has already happened, and the second of which Yontau will now not be attending).

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

Seamus (with tribe) finds Yontau idol.

Ep.3 advantage: Marian

Ep.3 advantage: Marian

Ep.3 advantage: Marian

Feeling on the outs, with her tribe contemplating Tribal that night, Marian scours the camp area (with Steffi) for an idol or advantage. Eventually, she finds a string, pulls on it, and at the end is a pouch containing the Diplomatic Immunity advantage. It allows her (or someone she chooses) to swap tribes at any point before the merge. She tells Steffi they can use it to keep their alliance intact if there's a swap. She later tells Dante, Meryl, and Shane about it as well.

← Previous: Ep.3 idol Next: Ep.4 RC/IC →

Marian finds Diplomatic Immunity.

(Jan. 24)

Ep.4 RC/IC: Nut Bucket

Ep.4 RC/IC: Nut Bucket

Ep.4 RC/IC: Nut Bucket

As seen in Caramoan, except with sandbags instead of coconuts. Dino, Tania sit out. Two people from each tribe (Felix, Thoriso; Dante, Steffi) must each pull a rope to hold up a net, while members of the other tribe try to land sandbags in the net, making it heavier. First tribe to drop both their nets loses. Winner gets immunity plus FutureLife food products. Order out: Felix, Dante, Thoriso. Steffi holds on, and finally, Masu wins immunity! (and reward).

Ep.5 RC/IC: Gauntlet

Ep.5 RC/IC: Gauntlet

Ep.5 RC/IC: Gauntlet

As seen in SurvivorAU: Champions v Contenders. In head-to-head matchups, one person from each tribe starts at each end of a narrow track in the water. On Nico's signal, they must run to the other end and pull a rope to release a cloud of tribe-colored smoke. Or they can try to stop their opponent from doing so. First tribe to score five points wins immunity plus reward: Comfort items and food ("Braaibroodjie" = fried sandwiches). Results: Rd1 - Steffi d. Shona (M1, Y0). Rd2 - Meryl d. Pinty (M2, Y0). Rd3 - Tejan d. Seamus (M3, Y0). Rd4 - Palesa d. Killarney (M4, Y0). Rd5 - Dante d. Felix (M5, Y0). Masu sweeps to immunity!

Ep.5 Masu idol: Steffi

Ep.5 idol: Steffi

Ep.5 idol: Steffi

After the reward feast, the Masus nap ... except Steffi, who makes a thorough search of camp. She eventually finds an idol in roughly the same area where Marian (and she) found the Diplomatic Immunity advantage. It's a regular, fully-powered idol, good until there are six people left in the game.

Day 9
(Jan. 27)

Ep.5 Yontau idol: Tevin

Ep.5 Yontau idol: Tevin

Ep.5 Yontau idol: Tevin

With Tribal approaching, Tevin makes a concerted effort to search for the idol, and picks the tribe flag/sign as a likely spot. He spies a tribe-colored rope sticking out of the sand, and pulls on it, revealing the idol. He does so right as Felix walks up, and somehow gets the idol up and into his pocket without Felix seeing him (maybe?).

← Previous: Ep.6 RC/IC Next: Ep.6 RC →

Tevin finds Yontau idol.

TC4 - Tevin voted out (5-4), 16 left.
Day 10

Ep.6 RC: Cart ride/ puzzle

Ep.6 RC: Cart ride/ puzzle

One person (Dino; Meryl) must sit in a cart attached to four ropes, which their tribemates must pull to raise them to gather four wheels. They must then lower the cart, and the rider puts the wheels on the cart. Then the four roll the cart and rider over obstacles to a sand pit, where the other three tribemates (Seamus, Killarney, Shona; Palesa, Marian, Toni) dig up ten planks to complete a bridge. After that, the rider must remove the wheels and use them (and other pieces) to build a vertical lighthouse puzzle. Yontau has a slight lead getting to the puzzle, and Dino makes short work of it. Winner gets to spin a (LottoStar branded) prize wheel for reward. Killarney gets a bag of lentils. Nico announces they also get to invite two guests from the other tribe (Toni, Tejan). Toni also gets to spin, wins mac & cheese for their feast.

← Previous: Ep.5 Yontau idol Next: Ep.6 IC →

Ep.6 IC: Rope, maze, slide puzzle

Three people (Dino, Seamus, Pinty; Shane, Meryl, Palesa) must move stakes attached to ropes through a maze puzzle, untangling the ropes around a pole, eventually releasing a key. That key opens a gate, and the entire tribe runs through a ramp gauntlet to work a giant slide puzzle to release letters to spell OUTWIT, OUTPLAY, OUTLAST vertically up a tower, where one person (Dino, Toni) gives instructions. First tribe to finish wins immunity. Results: It's neck and neck most of the way. Masu wins by a couple of letters.

Ep.7 tribe swap

Ep.7 tribe swap

Ep.7 tribe swap

The tribes arrive at an alleged challenge site, and are told to drop their buffs. For the tribe swap, each person stands by a podium with a water-filled vase, and selects a tube from Nico. On Nico's cue, they open their tube and dump it into the vase, revealing the color of their new tribe. The new tribes are Yontau (red): Dante, Dino, Marian, Meryl, Palesa, Phil, and Shane; and Masu (blue): Felix, Killarney, Pinty, Steffi, Tejan, and Toni. Shona's vase is filled with yellow dye. Instead of being exiled, she gets to choose which tribe to join. She elects to stay with Yontau.

← Previous: Ep.6 IC Next: Ep.7 Outpost →

Ep7 Tribe swap: Two tribes, now shuffled.

Ep.7 Outpost: Dante, Tejan

Ep.7 Outpost: Dante, Tejan

Ep.7 Outpost: Dante, Tejan

Later on the day of the swap, the new tribes are instructed to again select someone to send off to negotiate or trade for things they "forgot." Yontau sends Dante, Masu sends Tejan. Tejan and Dante make a minor tribe of some fishing gear (to Masu) in exchange for the toasting stick. They also each see a tribe-colored bag with rice at the Outpost. Upon opening it, each discovers an identical clue to an idol at their respective camps.

Ep.8 RC/IC: Bog Roll

Ep.8 RC/IC: Bog Roll

Ep.8 RC/IC: Bog Roll

As originally seen in China, also (US) Philippines, AU: All-Stars. Nico releases two large wooden balls into a mud pit. Three tribe members then race into the center and try to push one of the balls across their finish line. First tribe to score two points wins immunity and food (bread with curry). Rd.1: Dante, Shane, Palesa (Yontau) vs. Felix, Tejan, Steffi (Masu) - lasts close to an hour, ended because Dante tossed Steffi in the mud, hurting her knee. She's pulled by medical from the challenge, Nico rules the bout a draw. He then announces the next round will be sudden death: Shona, Marian, Meryl (Yontau) vs. Pinty, Toni, Killarney (Masu). Another draw, because Pinty somehow tackles Shona in such a way that she also gets pulled by medical. Episode 7 ends here, and resumes at the top of Ep8 (minutes after Shona's removal) with a substitution-heavy Rd.2, with Felix replacing Killarney and Shane replacing Shona. Nico also releases two more balls, for a total of four. Results: After about an hour, Toni rolls a ball across Masu's line, and Masu wins.

← Previous: Ep.7 Outpost Next: Ep.8 idol →

Ep8 RC/IC: "Bog Roll" - Masu wins, two injuries.

Ep.8 idol: Dino

Ep.8 idol: Dino

Ep.8 idol: Dino

With Tribal potentially approaching that night (it's eventually delayed to the next night), Dino searches camp for an idol that he and/or Phil can use to help reverse their unfavorable post-swap numbers. He finds one in driftwood on the beach. It's a regular, fully-powered idol.

Ep.9 IC: Blindfolds, maze, word puzzle

Ep.9 IC: Blindfolds, maze, word puzzle

One person (Dino; Thoriso) guides subsets of their blindfolded tribemates through a maze, to collect six bags of puzzle pieces. The guide then uses them to solve a word puzzle. First tribe to do so wins immunity plus a visit to the Fresh Stop Survivor shop. Yontau has a lead heading into the puzzle, and cements it as the non-Dino members all yell to drown out Thoriso's instructions. Yontau wins.

← Previous: Ep.8 idol Next: Ep.9 advantage →

Ep9 RC/IC: (Blindfolds, maze, word puzzle) - Yontau wins.

Ep.9 advantage: Meryl (Tribal Council pass)

Ep.9 advantage: Meryl (Tribal Council pass)

Yontau arrives at the food reward, and learns they can only eat one at a time. Almost everyone realizes there is likely an advantage to be found. They draw straws, and Meryl goes first. After checking a few places, she notices a cake with tribe symbols on it, plunges her hand into the middle, and pulls out a package. It contains a Tribal Council pass, allowing her (or someone she chooses) to leave Tribal before the vote, and it is good until final six.

Ep.10 swap idol: Tejan

Still having not found the idol using the clue from the Outpost, Tejan tries again, this time digging. He soon finds the idol, and learns it must be transferred to Yontau at the next IC. He enlists the help of Toni, because she regularly hugs players from the other tribe after challenges, and has her give it to Dino. She does this, although not undetected.

Ep.10 RC/IC: Wrecking Ball

Ep.10 RC/IC: Wrecking Ball

As seen in the Ep4 IC in SurvivorAU: Champions v. Contenders. Marian sits out. One person (Dante; Felix) must chop through a rope to release a large wrecking ball. Then the tribe must take it across mutliple obstacles. Finally, they must hoist it up again and swing it to use it as a wrecking ball, to break four tiles, then raise the tribe flag. First tribe to do so wins immunity and a pizza and beer feast. Yontau has an early lead on the tile-breaking, but Masu catches up to make it 3-3. But Yontau wins. After the challenge, Toni hands Dino the idol Tejan found, and several people notice.

Ep.11 RC/IC: Perch with Balls

As seen in The Australian Outback, The Amazon, Palau, etc., except in addition to standing on a small perch over the water, contestants must hold a ball over their head. If they drop the ball or fall off the perch they're out. Last tribe standing wins immunity. But there's a twist (or two): Both tribes will attend Tribal, AND cast votes. Also, the last person standing for each tribe will attend The Outpost. Order out: All reach the 15-min mark, where they must raise the ball above their heads. M5-Felix, Y7-Dante, Y6-Shane, Y5-Palesa. [40 min.] Y4-Marian, M4-Killarney. [60 min.] Y3-Meryl. [70 min.] Y2-Dino (deal with Phil to let him go to Outpost). [130 min.] Y1 - Phil, M2/3 (tie) - Tejan/Steffi (in a deal to let Toni attend the Outpost), M1 - Toni. Masu is immune. After the challenge, Marian uses her Diplomatic Immunity advantage to swap to Masu.

Ep.11 Outpost: Toni and Phil

Toni and Phil attend. They are instructed to talk amongst themselves and predict who will be voted out at the next (joint) Tribal Council. If they guess correctly, they will each receive a half of an immunity idol. They pick Shane. (He is not voted out, so no idols for them.)

Ep.11 advantage: Shane

The episode ends in a cliffhanger, as Toni and Phil vote for Shane, in preparation for Tribal Council. Just as they do, Shane is shown pulling on a red string near Yontau camp, and pulling up a package. As Ep12 opens, we learns it's Yontau's Diplomatic Immunity advantage, but it's now expired, because Marian already used hers, which voids the other one.

(Feb. 7)

Ep.13 non-RC: Slingshots/ merge feast

Ep.13 non-RC: Slingshots/ merge feast

Ep.13 non-RC: Slingshots/ merge feast

Similar to merge RC/feast concept in SurvivorAU: Brains v Brawn. Contestants must smash two plates using slingshots and marbles. The sooner they do so, the faster they can pick an item to eat, ranging from ribs, chips and beer to a boiled egg. First come, first served, but some items are covered. Order to eat: 1. Felix (ribs, chips), 2. Steffi (covered - bowl of rice), 3. Shane (who stays in to help Marian), 4. Phil (covered - rice and spices - plus a key to a cooler of beer back at camp), (3). Shane (burger, chips), 5. Marian (full SA breakfast), 6. Dino (covered - Save the Date advantage), 7. Tejan (spaghetti, wine), 8. Dante (beer, biltong), 9. Killarney (helped by Phil as multiple people jump in to help - donuts), 10. Meryl (OUTsurance reward send token), 11. Toni (egg). Not really an individual challenge, since placement didn't really mean better reward, and everyone "won" something.

← Previous: Ep.12 merge Next: Ep.13 IC →

Ep13 non-RC: (Slingshots, food) - Everyone wins. Dino, Meryl get advantages.

Ep.13 IC: Splash Forward

Ep.13 IC: Splash Forward

Sort of like Nicaragua's "Splash Back," but facing forward. Contestants must stand on a tilted platform, holding on to a knotted rope above their head. If they let go or fall off (into water), they're out. At regular intervals, they must move their hands out to a rope that's further out, increasing the lean. Order out: First rope - 11. Felix. Second rope - 10. Dino, 9. Killarney, 8. Dante, 7. Meryl, 6. Marian, 5. Toni, 4. Shane, 3. Tejan, 2. Steffi, 1. Phil wins! (He also pees, mid-challenge.)

Contestants must race up a dune to retrieve one of three keys, run back down, use the key to unlock one of three boxes containing puzzle pieces. When all three boxes are open, they must then complete the puzzle. Winner gets immunity plus reward: Chinese takeout (chicken noodle stir fry). Dante, Tejan first to start on the puzzle, but all get there eventually. From out of nowhere ... Meryl wins! She picks, Phil, Dino, and Steffi (who didn't eat at previous ep's reward) to join her. As it turns out, the reward has a dilemma: Eat, or bring back blankets for the tribe (they choose the latter). Also, the blankets include fortune cookies for the tribe, with one containing a ticket to the Outpost. It's won by ... also Meryl.

Contestants must move a peg through a diamond-shaped vertical maze, hanging on the other side of a locked gate. The peg is attached to a key that, when the maze is completed, unlocks the gate. Then they must complete the four-color block-stacking puzzle first seen in Samoa, where the blocks must be stacked such that no face of the stack has the same color twice. Results: Dino, Felix, Phil first through to the puzzle, then Meryl, Shane, Marian, Tejan. Killarney does not appear to reach the puzzle, but Marian wins, seconds ahead of Tejan.
