Ready? Go! Both tribes start to wind their team members around the ropes, and at first, both are doing well. Aitu gets through the first obstacle first, but then they have to dig under a log, and the buff dudes seem to have some advantage. Becky gets stuck under the log, and winds up with a mouthful of sand. Jenny and Cristina get through, and Becky is over at Aitu fussing over the way they're yanking on Candice's foot. "Don't worry about her, Becky, you worry about your job," Cao Boi orders. Hey! It's not your foot, jerkweed. Shortly thereafter, as they're tossing Becky and Candice over a post, Jonathan admonishes, "Gently, guys, let's not kill these girls." Well, seriously. Women aren't sandbags, Cao Boi, The 40 Year Old Virgin notwithstanding. Cao Boi actually argues with Jonathan, basically, saying that it doesn't matter, because if they win, they can always give the women a pillow later. Reminder, Cao Boi: broken ankles aren't cured by contact with a pillow, as much as I like a pillow. Meanwhile, Cristina tells Raro to stop, because she's tangled. At the next obstacle, this keeps happening, where Cristina tells the guys what she needs them to do, and they keep arguing with her. Aitu makes its way to the puzzle table, and when they've all tagged in, Ozzy makes a run out into the water. Raro is still tangled up.
Ozzy dives for the wheel, as Raro lags way behind. Ozzy heads back. He plops the wheel down, and basically, the wheel has numbers on it, and you have to figure out how to spin it so that the code is right and the numbers in the puzzle come out as words. Aitu is solving, solving, solving, all the way until Raro finally finishes the ropes and Brad runs out to retrieve Raro's puzzle wheel. Raro actually gets into the solving part, but then Aitu makes the claim that they have it right. And the puzzle reads, "Last Castaways Back Cast One Away." That is a horrible solution to a puzzle, but it is correct, so Aitu wins. Take that, Testosterone Q. Pumpsalot. There is much celebrating, other than from Becky and Candice, who had all their bones broken. Okay, not really. Jeff hands over the pillows and the blankets. Given the opportunity to send someone to Exile Island, Aitu sends Adam. J.P. gives the tentative punch-style Rub-Free Man-Hug, and Adam gets on the boat to exile as J.P. openly stews. Aitu takes its gear, and Raro takes nothing.
When we come back, whales are frolicking. At Aitu on Day 10, the tribe is celebrating its victory. Flicka tells us that she enjoyed winning, because they all feel threatened by the brawny other team, giggling, "They're so beefy, you know?" Ozzy continues catching fish as Jonathan hands him huge props. When they return to shore, all the fish are laid out, and Ozzy is appropriately congratulated. Ozzy explains that, of the eleven fish they have, he caught nine, so he's happy to be the "sole provider." Fish pun or moment of mathematical imprecision? You be the judge. Ozzy tells us that he has "the most power," because of the way he gets all the food, so if he leaves, everyone else on Aitu will die. We know how popular that argument has proved to be over the years. Yul tells the rest of the tribe that they should call Ozzy "Poseidon." I think not. Someone else suggests "Neptune." I scream "Dork!" at my TV, but nobody reacts. Sometimes, it's like I'm just screaming "Dork!" in a forest and no...trees are falling. Or something.
