|Pre-game||Ep1: "Stranded"||Ep2: "Suspicion"|
| Day 1
Tribes arrive on a military transport plane, have 5 minutes to remove survival items from a crate. From there, they take separate 5-mile hikes to their campsites, carrying as much gear as they can.
| Day 2
Ep.1 RC/IC: Bridging the Gap
While carrying a lit torch, tribes must 1. use two planks to cross a bridge with multiple holes, then 2. cross a river, pushing a raft. 3. After gathering ladder rungs, they must then pull a second raft across a river, using a rope, then 4. use the ladder rungs to climb a tower and light a wok. Ogakor develops a significant lead, then Kucha capsizes their second raft, extinguishing their torch. Ogakor wins easily, gets matches and immunity.

TC1 - Debb voted off (7-1), 15 left.
| Day 4
Ep.2 RC: Butch Cassidy
One at a time, contestants jump off a cliff into a river, swim out to a crate, then signal the next person to go. Once all tribe members reach the crate, it is unclipped, and the tribe must float it downstream, through rapids, to a campsite, then haul the crate to a platform. Ogakor wins, thanks to Rodger's poor swimming, and gets the contents of the crate (blankets).
| Day 5
Ep.2 IC: Tucker'd Out
(Gross Food). In the first round, contestants face off eating 'food' items selected on a spinning wheel. Some are good (apple, candy bar), most are not (mud whelk, crickets, witchetty grubs, mangrove worms, cow brain, tripe). Kimmi refuses, as a vegetarian, to eat brain. Tina is unable to hold down tripe. In the tiebreaker, Kimmi beats Tina eating a whole mangrove worm, and Kucha wins immunity.

After making a makeshift spear with a stick and a knife in the previous episode, Skupin races off with the knife after seeing a small pig near camp.
