| Day 1
Ep.1 RC: Sleds, bonfire
Held immediately after arrival and tribe assignments. Tribes must push a heavy sled along the sand, past three stations of fire-building materials, turn it around, then push it back, stopping at each station to collect husks, kindling, and bigger wood. Then they must build a bonfire big enough to burn through a high rope. One person (Henry, Mat) must run all the way back, untie a torch, light it, then bring it back to light the fire. Winner gets a premium camp with a pre-built shelter, a fire pit, supplies, etc. Mokuta (green) is the first to start building their fire, but the last to light it. Vakama builds a big fire, but it burns out before reaching the rope. They go back to get more wood, but Mokuta's fire burns through the rope while they're doing so. Mokuta wins! (Also: Henry finds a clue by the torch, tells Mat as he walks past, and Mat gets one too. It says there will be an idol at Tribal.)
| Day 2
Ep.1 IC: Obstacles, balls
10 people must race over three progressively steeper A-frame obstacles, then smash through tunnels full of sticks. Then four people (Mat, Moana, Locky, Tarzan; Henry, Harry, John, Zach) must help them cross stepping poles from one platform to another. Those four break boxes, releasing five balls, then two people (Shane, Lee; AK, David) must try to score five goals, while the four people hold the goal open by pulling a rope. First tribe to five goals wins immunity. Mokuta has a lead heading into the sticks, but they are way behind by the stepping poles. Goals made: AK-5, David-0; Lee-0, Shane-0. Vakama wins!

Ep.3 idol: Brooke
After the IC, much of Vakama camp openly starts looking for idols. Brooke sees a log with an interesting hole in a branch, looks in, and finds an idol in it. Locky sees her, but this is fine, since they're in an alliance. They meet up with David to coordinate their plans heading into Tribal, having already discussed the possibility that Mat has an idol himself.
TC3 - Daisy idoled out (-4-2), 21 left.
| Day 8
Ep.4 RC: Push the crate
Michelle sits out. In head-to-head matchups, one player from each tribe must push a heavy box along a track on a floating dock, while someone from the other tribe pushes back in the other direction.

Mat flips a crate on its side, fumbles around, discovers a hidden compartment, and pulls an idol out of it, in front of everyone.
Ep.4 IC: Hold up the barrel
Shonee sits out. There's a clue under the sit-out bench (unfound). Each person on the tribe must hold up a heavy barrel by holding on to a ring. If they can't go on, they can pass the ring to another tribe member, but if anyone drops a barrel, the entire tribe is out. Results: Everyone lasts 5 minutes, then Michelle hands hers off to Zach. [30 min.] Phoebe, Sharn drop out. [1 hr, 15 min.] Lots of transfers with people temporarily going down to 1 from 2. Eventually John (with 2) drops. Vakama wins!

Ep.5 idol: Shonee
While Vakama is enjoying their ice-cream reward in camp, Shonee notices a scroll tucked into the end of a log around the fire pit. She manages to sit down, grab the note, and abscond with it undetected. The note tells her there is an idol buried under the tribe's water well. She manages to tip the well (barrel) enough to pull the idol out from underneath. She shares the news with Nick, and later Harry.
Ep.5 IC: Logs, mud, catapult
Tribes must roll heavy logs up a ramp to build a bridge, allowing one person (Henry, Locky) to retrieve a mallet. Three people (John, Lee, Zach; Locky, Tarzan, Mat) then use the mallet to pound in large spikes, allowing the tribe to pull out a large wooden plug from a tunnel. The tribe then goes through the tunnel, over and under obstacles in a mud pit, then one person (Lee, Henry; Locky) attempts to use a catapult to land five balls in a basket. First tribe to do so wins. Mokuta has a big lead heading into the final stage, but can't land anything with the catapult, and Vakama catches up before they land a single ball. Balls landed: Lee-0 (swaps out), Locky-4, Henry-1, Locky-5. Vakama wins.
TC5 - Henry idoled out (-4), 19 left.
Ep.6 RC: Team 'Backed Up'
Sharn; AK, Tarzan sit out. Team, scaled-up version of the block-stacking/trip hazard challenge "Backed Up" originally seen as the Ep9 IC in Kaoh Rong. Blocks are larger than original version, and tribes compete in tethered pairs, making navigating the trip obstacle trickier.

Results: The John/Abbey pair struggles to remove Mokuta's third ball, as John panics underwater. Vakama starts shooting before Mokuta gets their final ball, and AK quickly lands all four balls. Vakama wins!
TC6 - Shonee, Zach sent to Exile Beach, 19 left.
| Day 15
Ep.7 Tribal swap
Vakama and Mokuta assemble, and learn two people were voted out of Mokuta last night (but exiled). Then they drop buffs and select new ones. Then Shonee and Zach show up, with Shonee being sent to new Vakama, and Zach sent to new Mokuta.
Ep.7 RC: Tug of war
Held immediately after tribe swap. Brooke sits out for Vakama. Challenge is a simple tug of war, where each tribe tries to make enough progress for their last person to grab a flag.

Mokuta learns their reward (in addition to a tray of snack items) is "Pandora's box," which is a locked chest sitting in the middle of camp. They're told two keys, either of which can open it, are hidden in the jungle near camp. Everyone searches. Nick finds the first key, alerts Phoebe and asks her to distract the others, while he opens the box. Soon after, Jacqui finds the second key, and heads off to open the box. By the time she gets there, Nick has already removed the "advantage": An extra vote.
Ep.7 IC: Carts, cube puzzle
Seven tribe members must pull a heavy cart along a straight course, loading it up with puzzle pieces as they go, while two members of the other tribe (Jacqui, Moana; Mat, John) try to pull the cart back the other way. Once across the line, they must use the pieces to build a 4x4 cube puzzle. Vakama has a slight lead heading into the puzzle, thanks to Mat and John's work as anchors on Mokuta's cart, but Nick leads Mokuta's puzzle efforts, and Mokuta wins!
TC7 - Abbey voted out (5-2-2-1), 18 left.
Ep.8 IC: This Much
Tribes learn they're both attending Tribal, and the challenge will be individual, one winner per tribe.

Everyone realizes that there's likely some kind of idol, clue, or advantage hidden in the reward area. Everyone does their best looking for one, but Phoebe (eating third) finds the clue under a cake. She memorizes it, and wisely moves the plate out of the area. It directs her to look for an idol in a termite mound near camp.
Ep.10 IC: Cube, keys, puzzle
Jacqui, Phoebe sit out. Tribes must arrange poles to build a staircase, climb up and over a tower, then roll a large cube to multiple stations, where one person (Locky; David) stands on it and uses a long pole to retrieve keys. One key will unlock the puzzle, which two tribe members (AK, Harry; Nick, Sharn) must solve. Results: David struggles with the first key, and Vakama builds a huge lead.

When she eventually heads out to do that, David grabs the idol, giving him two idols at the same time.
Ep.11 IC: Pairs arches over mud

TC23 - Moana voted out (1-0 or 2-1), 2 left.
Final Tribal Council
David and Sharn face the nine-person jury, and plead their respective cases. Sharn asserts she played an "aggressively covert" game, and succeeded by playing from the middle. David regales the jurors with his tale of idol snakery, double idols, jumping to a new alliance at the merge, and more. AK offers Sharn the chance to either accept the result of backing herself, or to have AK draw a rock from a bag, in which she'd have a guaranteed shot at his vote. In the end, David wins, 8-1. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jonathan does the vote reveal via satellite from Los Angeles, and Sharn and her family are present via video link from Melbourne.
Jury returns home, resumes Instagram influencing.
