It's been at least five minutes since Li'l Russell was mentioned, so we cut to his nephew, who is fishing to help his tribe and play the social game his uncle never tried. Except that while he's out there fishing by himself, the social game is probably happening back at his camp. Also, how did he get that fishing equipment? Did they just give it to the tribes from the beginning? That's lame. They should have to win it. Li'l Li'l Russell manages to catch a very tiny fish, which makes his tribemates very happy. He's also managed to cover up his Hantz tattoos by keeping his shirt on over just the top of his back, which doesn't seem weird at all. He repeats that he's going to make sure his tribemates never see him without his shirt on. "I don't want to be judged by my uncle's reputation," says the guy who hasn't stopped talking about him since the game started. He isn't fooling Sophie, who shows us that she truly is intelligent by figuring out that Li'l Li'l Russell might not be the best ally. "I have this gut feeling - I feel like he's hiding something," she says.
Whatever! Let's just go right into our first immunity challenge of the season. The tribes arrive, and Probst explains the challenge. Teams must make their way through an obstacle course that ends in a ten foot wall all tribemates must climb over. One tribemate will then dig in a sand pit for a machete and use it to cut a bunch of ropes and release a lovely bunch of coconuts from a bin. Three tribemates must then tosses those coconuts into a basket until the basket is full and heavy enough to raise a flag. The first tribe to raise their flag wins a rather boring little wooden immunity idol. The individual necklace had better by twice as exciting to compensate for this.
The teams get a chance to strategize, and Coach's expertise comes into play as he assigns two people to wall-lifting duty. Meanwhile, Semhar volunteers to be one of the coconut shooters, saying she's "comfortable" with it unless someone else has a burning desire to do it instead. I'm sure that won't come back to bite her in the ass at all.
Probst calls go, and the tribes make their way through the first obstacle course. Upolu is the first to make it through the first obstacle and into the second, with Probst begrudgingly admitting that they are being successfully lead by Coach. They make it to the wall first, and Rick and Albert get themselves over it unassisted to help the rest up. Savaii gets to the wall soon after, with that blonde girl somehow managing to lift herself up and over the wall first. That's not easy to do! Maybe I underestimated her. While John struggles to figure out how to climb the wall and starts bouncing around and asking himself what he's doing, Coach and Li'l Li'l Russell work with Rick and Albert to hoist the rest of their tribe over the wall. Embarrassingly, John has to be lifted up by Dawn, who is still better at this than he is even in her dehydrated and mentally fragile state.
