One at a time, contestants must swim to a ramp, jump off, grab a key, swim to and release puzzle pieces, then put them on the dock. Once all four are to the dock, one of the four keys unlocks the puzzle platform, upon which the 10+ pieces form a statue puzzle. Yellow team (Jon, Jaclyn, Reed, Alec) wins easily. Reed volunteers to swap out for Missy, who joins the rest on a reward trip delivering baseball supplies to local kids (with hot dogs, popcorn, and ice cream to eat). Wes is exiled.

Ep.11 RC: Crush
Contestants must answer trivia questions about the post-merge castmates. A correct answer earns them a chance to make one of three chops on an opponent's rope, which releases a rock, crushing a fake skull. Reed, Alec & Keith are rapidly eliminated, after which Probst calls the challenge, and has Jon's alliance just decide which of them gets the reward (it's Missy). Missy picks Baylor & Natalie to join her for an overnight horseback ride/resort stay. Jon volunteers to be Exiled.
Mere hours after playing his first one, Jon finds another poorly hidden idol.

Keith wins 'advantage' in the next IC (a letter that tells him location of the practice table). Keith picks Jaclyn for Exile.
| Day 37
