As the tribes arrive at the challenge site, we see that Chuay Gal is more colorful and creatively attired than Ghengis Kahn. Of course, Ghengis Kahn has more important things to worry about, what with the raping and pillaging and all. He has no time for flowers and hair bows, never mind arm patches. And why does Chuay Gal have arm patches, anyway?
The tribes arrive on a small island, where Peachy awaits them. Robb boastfully reveals that Sook Jai has created a warrior, but purple spats aren't very Ghengis Kahn-like. Clay is also proud of Chuay Gal, and Grindia takes the opportunity to complain that she's "a bit lazy, though." This buys right into Peachy's set-up: he explains that today's challenge is all about carrying the weight of tribe members who can't do it for himself. The S13 will race around the island, while carrying the 250-lb. dummy. First, they will make their way along the shoreline before hitting their first major obstacle halfway through the course: a rope, which they will use to drag themselves and the dummy up a steep hill, taking them to the other side of the island. Peachy says that "once [they're] over the hill" (so Jan and Jake have a head start), they will navigate the dummy along a rocky shore, through an archway, and back around to the course's starting point. The first tribe back -- with the dummy, of course -- wins the reward. As Peachy explains, we see that the dummies are huddled together with their heads on each others' shoulders -- even they are embarrassed to be here. Peachy next reveals that they're competing for the season's first food reward. He stands beside a large sheathed object and dramatically unveils a rack filled with many, many bunches of bananas. The tribes look confused and try to muster enthusiasm. Bananas, fine. They won't get leg cramps. But what about the chocolate and the pizza? What about the Mountain Dew? Peachy promises that there are enough bananas to "last a long time;" some, in fact, are ripe and ready to eat immediately. He encourages the winners to rub the prize directly into the faces of the losers by digging in immediately following the challenge. Additionally, he promises a mystery reward awaiting them back at camp. Clay whispers sweet nothings in Chuay Gal's ear. Literal sweet nothings since, unless she's from the deep South, she probably can't understand a word he says. Meanwhile, Ted manages to refrain from grinding her. Seriously, Chuay Gal might have solved all of Chuay Gahn's problems had she arrived a few days sooner and taken the spot next to Ted in the shelter. Sook Jai chooses to sit out Shii Devil, who seems to sit out every other challenge -- as many as possible, since no competitor can sit out two in a row.
