Kelly and an unrecognizable Kimp check treemail, which is accompanied by a musical instrument. Kelly tells the others it's "like an African music-making device." The clue is about "co-ordination" and "persistence" and "run[ning] out of breath" and also about "fun," "leverage," "focus," and the fact that they "don't wanna miss." It also mentions an unusually cool reward. As the clue is read, Lex Loser takes out his aggressions on the innocent instrument. Then, an alligator angrily thrashes around. Because Lex Loser is angry, you see? And thrashing angrily around?
The tribe arrives at the challenge site and Peachy announces that it will involve "a little bit of co-ordination; whole lot of persistence." They're each given nine items; the goal is to get all of the items into a basket on top of a tower using a plank as a springboard. The items include a rope, a cornhusk, four big bags, two little bags, and possibly a skull. Peachy warns the S9 that the items must be catapulted into the basket one at a time and that they'll need to adjust for wind. The prize? Two goats. Not for dinner, but to barter in a local village for "whatever [they] deem important." Peachy adds, "And the merchant who you trade with will be able to increase his herd of goats which increases his wealth." I guess this gratuitous explanation is intended to head off critics who think Survivor is making a mockery out of non-Western ways of life. Instead Survivor and its goats are promoting the Kenyan economy! The goats are brought out by two locals, and we are reunited with Charles, first seen at the blood-drinking challenge. It turns out Charles was the name of the Kenyan, not the cow, and if Charles turns up one more time, he'll have to join the union. He's also brought along with him his brother, Isaac.
