Reward challenge! I see a bunch of platforms with pointy tops on them, all the better for someone to pass out and impale himself on. Probst calls the tribes in and takes a moment to bask in the hot, dry, sunlight before pointing out that Shambo is wearing Galu's leader necklace. Meanwhile, Foa Foa exchange looks like "I thought Shambo told us they hated her on that tribe. Hmmm!" Shambo says she isn't surprised to be elected leader, as she has "a lifetime of leadership skills," none of which she has actually displayed in this game so far.
Probst explains the challenge: it's a giant game of Memory, with the thirty-six platforms having sixteen pairs of survival items under them and four items that have no match for some reason. With each match, the team gets a point unless the tribe leader decides that he or she wants the matched item at camp, in which case the tribe receives that item but forfeits the point. Oh, that's pretty cool. The tribe with the most points at the end of the game gets an afternoon sailboat ride and lunch except for one member who will be sent to the opposing tribe. Shambo gets to sit three people out. She goes with Kelly, Dave Ball, and herself. Smart thinking, Shambo! Unlike Russell, who had no concept of his own limitations, she knows she's going to suck out at Memory and should stay as far away from it as possible. But now she has to assign someone else to make the decision on whether to keep the item or take the point. She immediately chooses Erik. Dave Ball immediately and loudly protests this for some reason, telling her to pick Brett instead. She does. Way to give the other tribemates cameratime, Shambo! Such a good leader.
The game begins. Galu gets the first match when Laura matches a fire-starting kit, which is a large amount of fire-starting supplies that are -- most importantly -- wrapped in a tarp. A precious waterproof tarp. "KEEP IT," Brett says immediately. "Thank god," Shambo says. Watch it not rain now for the rest of their time out there. Liz goes for Foa Foa and reveals a rusty cleaver with her first turn. The match was revealed earlier, so all she has to do now is remember where and pick it up for a match. She does not do this, instead picking up mosquito netting, the match to which was also revealed in an earlier turn. Whoops! Now Galu has their choice of which item to pick -- the netting or the cleaver. Brett goes next and matches the mosquito netting, taking the point instead of the item and giving Galu the lead.
