The rafts arrive at the platforms at about the same time; the Fans have a slight lead, but only a few seconds. Erik goes down first for the Favorites and pulls out a ton of sticks. The Favorites strategy seems to be to pull some sticks all the way out and then pull some sticks partway out for the next person. Sherri is the only one going in the water for the Fans and she's not doing a great job. The Favorites are quickly rotating people in and out of the water, and they have six rings while the Fans only have one. The Favorites get all nine rings and the Fans only have two, so the Favorites head back to the beach. The Favorites also have a good pulling strategy: they put Brandon closest to the water, so he's doing most of the pulling while Cochran and Corinne are just managing his slack for him. The Favorites get back to the beach and start tossing rings before the Fans even finish collecting rings and get onto their raft.
Malcolm quickly rings two posts, so he only needs one more. The Fans aren't even back to shore yet, but Shamar is pulling like hell. No one can accuse him of slacking off in challenges. Reynold starts tossing rings for the Fans and rings one post. Phillip takes over tossing for the Favorites, and gets the final ring, so the Favorites win. Brandon is screaming and whooping, which is sure to win favor with the other tribe. Dummy. Act like you've been there before. As they leave, Reynold interviews that he can't wait to get rid of Shamar, and their vote is obvious. Is it, Reynold? Is it?
The Favorites return to camp, victorious. They're psyched about the win, and the fishing kit. Once they finish celebrating, Phillip says that they need to collect more wood, so I guess the celebration is over. As Phillip and Malcolm collect wood, Phillip explains the nicknames he has given each of his alliance members, like Malcolm is "The Enforcer." Malcolm interviews that Phillip is getting ridiculous. And then they break the fourth wall as Phillip introduces each of his Stealth R Us Inc members: Cochran is "The Intelligence Attache", Malcolm is "The Enforcer", Andrea is "The Eliminator", Corinne is "The Dominatrix", and Dawn is "The True Grit." It's weird to see them looking directly into the camera, but it's also amusing. I'd rather see this than another million hours of Brandon complaining about how people are mean or whatever. Malcolm interviews that he's happy to play along for a few days, but Phillip is insane. Glad Malcolm gets that.
