Eliza is pretty far along the rope bridge when Erik leaps across his. Somehow, even though it looks like Erik got to the spinning balance beam first, I guess Eliza touched it with her hand first, and that's what counts? Because Probst lets her go first and makes Erik wait. She gets the flag first, and on her return trip is wary of Ami's bag-throwing skills. They play chicken for a while, with Eliza trying to fake Ami out and make her throw the bag early, but in the end, Eliza is able to make it past the bags and across the bridge. Also, she can be cautious since Erik is behind her, so he can't move until she does. Again, a second balance beam wouldn't have been a bad idea here. Erik also makes it across, and then I guess he's allowed to go again instead of Amanda, because he does. He tries to leap across the rope bridge again, but this time he's not so lucky. He hits the opposite platform chest-first. I assumed he was, like, dead, but Probst just tells him to go back to start. And he's moving, so I guess he's okay. But damn, that looked painful. While Jason easily gets across the course, Amanda falls through the bridge so it's Erik's turn again. Yet AGAIN, even though there's really no point this time as Jason is about to win and even if Jason did fall at the last second, leaping across the gap wouldn't make much of a difference for Malakal, Erik jumps for it. He gets across, although lands badly on one of his feet. It doesn't seem to bother him, though. Nor does it matter; Jason makes it back with the flag. Before he can put it in the bucket, though, he has to scream "PIZZA AND BEER!" It would have been funny if he'd fallen off the platform and dropped the flag, giving Malakal the win. He manages to stay upright and get the flag in the bucket, though, so Airai celebrates and Malakal sulks. Especially Erik.
Malakal minus Ozzy arrive back at camp. "Who took that really hard fall?" Ami asks. Um...duh. I know they've got similar hair, Ami, but the fact that Erik wasn't wearing a shirt should be enough for you to tell them apart. Ami asks if he's okay while ominous music plays. "No," Erik says. He says it hurt "like crazy" and lifts his shirt for the ladies to see. There's no mark there, although I'm sure he got a nice bruise at some point later on. Ami tells us that she likes Erik and wishes they could have won the challenge today, but since they didn't, he's going tonight. "I don't see any way out for him," Ami says confidently.
