Sook Jai decides to sit out Jake and Erin; then Peachy starts them off, and the competitors begin tiptoeing along the bamboo posts. Clay is so sprightly, and is clearly fitter then he appears. Ted is the first to fall -- more flop than fall, truth be told -- and Peachy urges him back to the start. Clay then falls directly onto Ted. Brian tries to rescue Clay's box, but it's dead in the water, according to Peachy. Sook Jai quickly has two boxes where Chuay Gahn has none. Stephanie -- who looked pretty capable at first -- bites it. Ted -- who's probably way to large for this kind of balance challenge -- begins crawling along the posts instead. Peachy applauds his ingenuity. And suddenly, it's time for the first attack zone "showdown" between Ted and Robb. Robb taunts Ted: "Stand there and try to pump me, baby." Ted goes for Robb's legs and he flies off the post. So Robb loses his booty and has to start over again.
Peachy says, "Thataway, Penny," as she wobbles along, which is exactly what people say to girls named Penny. Clay feels up Brian for love handles as they intersect on the course. At this point, it's 5-3 with Sook Jai in the lead, and Shii Devil approaches the attack zone opposite Brian. She asks her tribe, "You want me to push him in?" and Ken and the others yell at her to "Rush him!" and "Bring him in the water with you!" They do not, however, yell "Sweep the leg," and Brian fails to assume Ralph Macchio stance. Shii Ann looks concerned and hunches into a visibly half-hearted attack position before Brian easily tosses her in the drink. Robb is pissed off, which is ironic since he's the only other member of the tribe to have been bested thus far.
The game continues along until Sook Jai has seven baskets while Chuay Gahn has only four. Brian and Ken come up against each other in the zone, and Ken takes him out. Is anyone playing for Chuay Gahn at this point besides Ted and Brian? Ken then remains near the zone while Helen charges him. She pretty much bounces off him into the water, but it's declared a victory for Chuay Gahn by Peachy, because Ken wasn't in the zone when the initial contact was made, even though it appeared that Helen ran into him. So, Ken's out of the game, and the other tribe gets a Sook Jai basket, bringing the score to 7-5. Robb achieves non-nudity related pixelation by flipping off the other tribe, and then Peachy warns them not to "get too cute in that attack zone."
