For today's challenge, one member of each tribe will run across a floating bridge while carrying a piece of rope attached to a spool on the beach. At a platform, the contestant will clip the rope onto a set of puzzle pieces and then his tribemates on the beach will reel the pieces and the contestant in. Once all pieces are in, two tribe members will have to assemble them into an even square. Eliza and Ozzy go first, and Ozzy has a slight lead, easily running across the bridge while Erik cheers him on and everyone else probably rolls their eyes. While Ozzy and Eliza make it to the pieces at almost the same time, Malakal reels Ozzy in much faster as Eliza chooses to sit on the pieces and not help them off of the platform. Ozzy goes again for his team, and Jason goes for Airai. Even though Jason is a gymnast and you'd think be good at this kind of thing, he keeps falling into the water. Meanwhile, Ozzy graciously allows Erik to take a turn with the rope. While he's being reeled in, Parvati goes next for her team. Erik gets back on the beach and Ozzy takes the rope from him. "Ozzy having no trouble on this bridge!" Probst announces; "Ozzy reaches the end of the platform quickly!" Is he being paid off or something? Shut up, Probst! Ozzy goes again while Parvati's boob falls out of her bikini. Ozzy's looking tired the fourth time around and has to drag himself onto the platform. Maybe he should have let his teammates take a turn running, eh? But no. Probst is sure to point out how slow Natalie is, which I'm sure she really appreciated, while Ozzy gets the final set of pieces on the beach and Amanda and Cirie take over solving the puzzle. Eliza gets the final set of pieces back to the beach and almost loses her bikini bottom. I really think I'd just wear a one-piece if I was on this show. Although maybe not, since I'd want to show off the flat stomach starvation got me. Hmm. Tough call. Eliza and Jason start solving the puzzle for their team. Erik cheers Cirie and Amanda on, apparently confusing them both for Ozzy. Apparently, the puzzle pieces are big and heavy, so Airai has an advantage by having Jason on the solving team. He's certainly not going to be much help with the solving. While Cirie and Amanda tire themselves out randomly shoving the pieces around, Eliza takes a second to look at the pieces individually and do some mental calculations. She and Jason quickly get it solved. Eliza just rocks the puzzle challenges. I really think she's been a big reason why Airai has done so well. It's about time brains was worth something on this show. Disgusted, Probst tells Malakal he'll be seeing them at tribal council for the third straight time.
