And then there's another reward challenge, so Cirie's threat may every well come true sooner than even she thinks, as these reward challenges are kind of deadly. No one on Airai is surprised to see Chet gone, and Probst explains the challenge: the teams will roll a large Micronesian money stone around a course, running over tile boxes containing eight much smaller money stones. The rollers will be blindfolded and lead around by two seeing teammates. Once all eight money stones have been collected, three members of each team will have to fit them on a "rotating cog puzzle." Probst goes all poetic with the reward, telling everyone to close their eyes and pretend they're under a refreshing waterfall. Unbelievably, everyone closes his/her eyes. Maybe they think if they do what they're told, they'll get a special bonus reward. They don't. Probst continues that they'll get to wash their hair with the help of HERBAL ESSENCES shampoo and conditioner, which doesn't do James much good. But there are also snacks, so that's nice. Everyone agrees it's worth playing for, with Kathy especially emphatic in her response. Almost...insanely so. Natalie will sit the challenge out, and leading the team for Malakal will be Cirie and Tracy. Eliza and Kathy will be doing the honors for Airai. Cirie starts off on the wrong foot by forgetting that her left is the opposite of her teams' and leading them in the wrong direction. Tracy steps up and fixes the mistake, and Malakal gets their first tile box crushed and takes the lead. Malakal somehow keeps the lead despite Cirie's continued inability to tell her right from her left. Maybe it's because she's so loud and screamy while Eliza is cool, calm, and collected. Airai misses their third tile box and falls further behind. Jason whines about something, earning him a "shut up and listen" from James. Ha ha!
