The next day, Penner goes out fishing with Lisa and Abi (who sit in the boat and do nothing, although at least Lisa bails water out of the boat so she's not totally useless.) Penner has no luck fishing. Glad his tribe isn't relying on him for food as he's not quite the provider he claimed to be earlier. Lisa interviews that everyone is focused on getting out Penner and Skupin, and once that happens, her plan is to team with Jeff Kent, Carter, Malcolm and Denise to pick off the rest of Tandang. Lisa and Jeff Kent go to get tree mail and talk strategy. Jeff Kent floats the idea of teaming up with Lisa to take out Abi, Artis and Pete. Lisa likes the sound of that. Jeff Kent interviews that Lisa is soft and naïve and nice, and it might work if he teams with her. Oh, Jeff. Lisa is nice, but she's also shrewd.
Time for the Reward Challenge. Probst explains that they will divide into two teams. One at a time, each person will run into the water, holding a rope and hook it to a fish trap, and then be pulled back to shore by their team. Once all four fish traps are collected, another teammate will dig up a key to unlock a puzzle frame. Two teammates will use the puzzle scrolls from the fish traps to complete a scroll in the frame. The winning team gets a feast while on a river cruise.
We don't see how they are divided up; presumably it's a random draw because they would totally show it if it were a schoolyard pick. The teams end up being Carter, Artis, Skupin, Pete and Abi versus Jeff Kent, Penner, Malcolm, Denise and Lisa. Interesting how Artis, Pete and Abi ended up on the same team. Abi and Jeff Kent are the first two out. I guess Abi's knee feels better. The thing that cracks me up the most is that Lisa already has her snorkel mask on even though she won't be swimming for about two more rounds. I guess she just wants to be prepared. Jeff Kent gets back first.
Penner has a big lead on Pete as they both head out and then get pulled back. Lisa and Carter are the next two out and Lisa is... not a strong swimmer. Carter passes her quickly. I don't know why they put Lisa, their weakest swimmer, third. She has the second longest distance to swim. Why not put her first? Unless the idea is that they'll be more tired by then and she's a lighter weight to pull back in.
Skupin is next for his team, and he's already to his buoy when Denise heads into the water. Skupin being Skupin, he can't find the fish trap even though I'm pretty sure you just have to follow the rope down. It does look pretty murky under there, but he complains that he can't see it. Denise takes the opportunity to catch up and Skupin finally finds the fish trap and also gets hauled back to the beach.
