The tribes split up, with Parvati, Courtney, Douche, Tyson, Danielle, and Li'l Russell on the boat for the Villains and James, Tom, Candice, Colby, Stephenie, and J.T. for the Heroes. They race to their boat pieces and planks and drag them into the water. Probst notes that James is carrying two boat pieces on his own, because Probst loves James. The Heroes gain a significant lead when they get their boat together before the Villains even have their planks in place. They've already got their lit torch and are heading back by the time the Villains set out. Probst is happy to see them on the water, though, as he finally gets to make fun of Douche's kayaking experience and sarcastically claim it should help his tribe in this challenge. The Heroes get their boat back to shore and hand their planks to the puzzle team, who get to work. On one hand, the puzzle team has Cirie on it, and she's smart. On the other, it also has Amanda, Sugar, and Rupert, who are all stupid. They haven't gotten very far into it by the time that Villains get started on theirs. Rob and Sandra take over on the puzzle and make quick work of it, while the Heroes struggle with theirs. The Villains complete their puzzle and work on the ladder. The Heroes aren't even close and just give up when they see the Villain tribe climbing up their ramp. So they can sit back and watch the Villains win.
Probst hands the Villains the immunity idol and some flint. Sugar bursts into tears. I do too, as I just realized that the Villain tribe's win means that Li'l Russell will be on this show for at least one more episode. Probst points out Sugar's tears to everyone, then sends the tribes away. During the slow motion walk of shame, Colby interviews that Sugar is having an "emotional breakdown" this early in the game, and so probably isn't fit to continue in the game. Okay, while I think that Sugar is lame for crying, she didn't have an "emotional breakdown." Come on.
The Villains return to camp feeling very triumphant. The talk soon turns to who the Heroes will be sending home. Sandra thinks Tom and Stephenie are aligned, as are James, Cirie, and Amanda from their last season together. "And what's the other one?" she asks, by which I'm pretty sure she's referring to Parvati. Parvati, meanwhile, chops something and says she has no idea if Amanda and Cirie are working together or not. Which is bullshit, since I'm sure they all talked about this and came to an agreement before the show began filming. Li'l Russell gets yet another interview, talking about how the Villains are enjoying life right now while the Heroes are not. With that, he makes a see-saw and plays on it with Douche. No, really.
