Ep.1 arrival: Opening scramble

Upon arrival, the tribes are divided by random draw. They then have two minutes to race across the beach and gather items useful for camp (mostly fruit, bamboo, palm fronds). At the far end, there is also one single-use immunity necklace for each tribe, good at their first Tribal Council. Those go ungrabbed until the closing seconds, when Dino takes Zamba's. After time runs out, Renier reveals he also grabbed a "tribe advantage," which gives Zamba useful camping items (one sleeping bag, a bed roll, knife, etc.).

One at a time, five tribe members (Renier, Marisha, Tyson, Nicole, Anesu; Shaun, Mike, Carla, Wardah) must swim out, climb and jump off a ramp obstacle, and retrieve one of five rings. After all five are retrieved, two other tribe members (Dino, Kiran; Chappies, Anela/Paul) at a time must toss them and try to land them on a post. Zamba's advantage lets them start with one ring, so they only need four swimmers. Zamba has a big lead heading into the tossing. Rings landed: Chappies 2 (Z2, V0), Dino, Kiran 2 (Z2, V3), Paul (Z3, V3), Kiran (Z3, V4), Paul (Z4, V4), Kiran hits the winning shot. Vuna wins, 5-4.

Once all are returned, they must then stack them in the correct order on a staircase frame, to complete a puzzle along the side. Vuna has a lead starting on their puzzle, but wins easily because the Zamba men refuse to listen to the women's (accurate) puzzle ideas. Vuna sends Carla to Immunity Island.

Ep.4 Immunity Island: Carla

Ep.4 Immunity Island: Carla

Upon arriving at Immunity Island, Carla weighs the benefits and risks of performing the task and receiving guaranteed personal immunity, or choosing Give Up and Go, and keeping her vote in face of a potential vote split by the opposition. She had promised Wardah she would do the latter, and reasons she can pretend the necklace is fully powered, even though she can only bequeath it. She decides to Give Up and Go, and swiftly returns to camp.

← Previous: Ep.4 IC Next: Ep.5 RC →

Ep4 II: Carla gives up and goes.

Contestants are given the choice of competing for a visit to Immunity Island (red challenge) or a tribal reward (blue challenge) for the last person standing: a feast at Tribal Council, observing the other tribe's vote. But both tribes must attend Tribal. Thoriso and Anesu are the only two in the red challenge. The challenge is simple: Balance a bowl of rice on your head while standing on a narrow perch. Last person standing wins it. Red challenge: Thoriso out almost immediately, so Anesu wins. Blue challenge: Order out - Anela, Dino, Renier, Santoni, Carla, Kiran, Amy, Marisha, Chappies, Shaun, Qieän, Wardah (so Vuna wins, with Nicole/Tyson still in), at 10 min., Tyson drops, so Nicole wins! She will receive an extra portion of food at Tribal the next day.

Ep.5 Immunity Island: Anesu

Ep.5 Immunity Island: Anesu

Anesu takes her hard-won trip to Immunity Island, and learns the task is memory-based. Having done a lot of memorization in medical school, she decides to Stay and Play. It's a simple task: Observe a series of 8 objects, cover them, then recreate the series before the timer runs out. Anesu does it, and she wins! Her prize is a Tribal Council Pass, which she can either use herself or use on another player, to remove them from Tribal Council and send them back to camp before the votes are cast. This advantage will be valid until seven players are left.

← Previous: Ep.5 RC  Next: Ep.6 RC →

Once back, two people (Dino/Renier, Kiran/Anesu; Santoni/Shaun, Wardah) puts the pieces on a spindle and rotates them to spell the winning phrase (PICK ME UP). The winning tribe receives coffee, tea, and pastries. Weather/water are in rough condition. Chappies has to help Anela and Santoni with their pieces, Vuna has a three-piece lead when they start their puzzle. Challenge lasts over an hour, mostly due to the puzzle, but Vuna wins. They ask if they can share their reward with Zamba, Nico approves. Marisha later walks over to Zamba with their recently raided machete and a container of pastries.

Anela arrives at Immunity Island, and quickly decides to Stay and Play. The task is simple: Land five sandbags in the hole on a cornhole board before times runs out. If he succeeds, he wins an extra vote. Anela lands three, but not five, and he loses his vote. He also spends close to two days at I.I., because Tribal is not until the next night.

Ep.7 RC/IC: Keys, climb, puzzle

Amy sits out. Contestants start on a raft in the water, have to jump in and swim to shore, collecting three keys attached to buoys along the way. The first key unlocks a set of posts, which the tribe must arrange in order and climb up to the first level. There, a second key unlocks a metal ladder, which they must pull up, slot into place, and climb to the top level. There, the final key unlocks puzzle pieces, which one person (Renier, Kiran) must assemble to make a large, vertical circular logo puzzle. Winning tribe gets immunity plus a Mexican food feast (with margaritas). Results: Vuna takes a lead on the swim, maintains it throughout. They win, send Anela to Imm. Isl. again.

Ep.7 Immunity Island: Anela

Anela arrives at Immunity Island, and the "Stay or Play" explainer all but begs him to stay and "play." As it turns out, there is no task, just the same feast Vuna won in the RC/IC, plus Anela's video from home. At the end of the video, his brother tells him "Look behind you." Anela finds a rolled-up piece of paper, and is off on a treasure hunt. The final (third) clue leads him to the Immunity Island sign, where a "Tribal insurance" advantage awaits. It allows him to steal someone else's vote at one of the next two Tribals he attends.

Rock draw for teams (Green: Kiran, Shaun, Anesu, Nicole, Anela; Orange: Renier, Wardah, Amy, Tyson, Chappies), Santoni draws white rock and must sit out, but gets to bet on which team wins. Challenge: Teams must carry a ball across obstacles, balanced on a disc suspended from ropes. Once across, one person (Anela; Chappies) must toss the ball at four targets. First team to hit all four wins a trip for beer & pizza. Results: Both teams drop multiple times, but orange has a big lead as they deliver to Chappies, and he hits all four targets quickly. Orange wins, and Santoni guessed correctly, so she also gets reward. At the reward, Renier finds a clue stating there's an idol at Immunity Island.

Wardah, 3(tie). Renier, Anesu, Tyson all knocked off by a wind gust at the same time. [1.5 hrs] 2. Amy, 1. Nicole wins! (and so does Anela, because of the pairs twist). Nicole, in a "no brainer" decision, takes Nicole and Renier with her and Anela to the water park, a decision the other three instantly regret, because it prevents the original Zambas from doing any kind of plotting back at camp.
