Meanwhile, Sandy has managed to figure out that a pace is a footstep, but that won't help her the least little bit since she isn't walking towards the lone palm tree. It would appear that she doesn't know what "lone" or "palm tree" mean, either. How did Sandy even manage to audition for this show? Wouldn't she have had to figure out where the open auditions were being held or how to use a video camera?
Tempura's out of water on Day 2. They probably sweated out just as many fluids in the effort to carry those jugs to camp as they got from the extra drinking water. Sierra, the Other Blonde (named Debbie), and Tyson head down to get some more water from their lake. Once they arrive, Tyson decides that it's a good idea to strip naked for no reason in front of two women he barely knows. This kind of thing would make me feel uncomfortable, but the blondes just laugh while semi-averting their eyes. Tyson interviews that since he's from Utah, people might expect him to be all buttoned up and straight-laced with "nerdy glasses," but he's not the "stereotypical Mormon." Actually, he kind of is. Every Mormon I've ever seen on a reality show has been kooky and trying way too hard. And since when did the stereotypical Mormon have bad eyesight? Tyson continues that he's a free spirit. Free spirits don't feel the need to show off. Tyson says he thinks making people laugh will help him in this game, which he wants to win so he can have furs and rings and "a tiara. A man-tiara." Okay, I kind of like him again. His hands full of water jug, Tyson does the crazy naked guy shuffle back to the beach. I see Douche has arrived to see the show at this point as well. Of course.
Challenge time! The tribes arrive and are greeted by Probst, who gets right down to the rules. Six members of each tribe must race across the beach and over sand hills into the water, where they'll retrieve a raft of "puzzle planks." They must get the raft to shore, untie the planks, and run them back to the starting point, where the two non-racing members of the tribe will assemble a staircase with the planks. Each plank has a different set of holes, so only one fits each step. Once they've built their staircase, the entire tribe runs up and two members must navigate a peg through a maze. The first tribe to complete the maze wins. The Jalapeño flag is raised in the example footage, which means they lose. The winning tribe gets fire and the immunity idol, which has a cool pre-Columbian Indian art design to it. Unfortunately, it then becomes the victim of a cheesy idol-wipe.
