And now, it is time to head out to the immunity challenge. When they've all lined up, Jeff says that Sarge, just generally, looks "angry." "Just thinkin'," Sarge says. I think it's safe to say that's unlikely. Jeff explains that the challenge is a puzzle that has to be assembled from a bunch of pieces with different-colored sides so that it perfectly matches a picture the players will be shown. The puzzle is a sort of a star, with a lot of different points and corners and things. The picture will change every round, and you're only in the game as long as you keep getting the puzzle right. It's single-elimination, so if you screw up, you sit down. The players sit behind the puzzles, and Jeff shows them the first picture. They study it. They assemble their puzzles. Jeff checks their work, and who's out in the first round? Chad. Chris. Sarge. Yes, that's right. The three guys who most needed immunity managed to be the three people who didn't manage to get through a single round. It really is pretty hard to believe. Or it would be, if you didn't know what buffoons these people are.
There really isn't a hell of a lot to say about this challenge, as is the case most weeks. The second round knocks out Scout and Twila. Next round knocks out Eliza. Next round knocks out Julie and Leann, leaving immunity for Ami. Oh, ew. Everyone looks around unhappily -- except for Ami, who's gloating -- and heads back to camp.
When they've returned, Sarge is talking about how angry he is at himself for not anticipating that there would be so many different parts of the puzzle to memorize. Ami interviews that she's not sure it was a good idea to win the challenge, because she's already viewed as a threat. And I agree. But she goes on to say that she just can't force herself to "play bad." Of course, if her theory is correct, what it really means is that she can't get herself to "play good," assuming that she's competing for a million dollars and not puzzle bragging rights, but hey, these are fine lines. After we see a little canoodling between her and Leann, Ami tells us that she will be voting for Sarge, because he's a "physical threat." Sarge's big I Am A Physical Threat shot is a little bit interfered with by the fact that the angle emphasizes his potbelly a little bit, but whatever, he did win that water challenge. Indeed, Sarge tells us that he does sense that he's on the block (such a threat, you know), but he also thinks it's possible that things could change and Eliza could go instead as a result of how much Scout can't stand her.
