The tribe arrives at the challenge, where Peachy wears a blah gray shirt that does nothing for his nice blue eyes; his ears look particularly big in this segment, but I suspect that has less to do with the shirt and more to do with the fact that his ears are just big in. In any case, he explains that today's competition is a race to collect and assemble puzzle pieces. The S6 will race to grab four paddles from under a series of "sandy mounds." Hee. He said "sandy mounds" again. Because there are only four paddles and six competitors, two will be eliminated immediately. The remaining four will paddle out in canoes to color-coded boxes, where a trivia question will await them: "The bite of which Amazonian snake results in the most deaths?" The answer choices are anaconda, pit viper, vine snake, coral snake, or Richard Hatch. Each answer corresponds to a bag of puzzle pieces, which the competitors will take to one of two "puzzle stations" on land. Yes, Peachy said "puzzle stations." If the player correctly answered the trivia question, his or her puzzle pieces will be in stylish camouflage and will fit together. If the player incorrectly answered the question, his or her puzzle pieces will be in basic black. Peachy points out that since there are only two puzzle stations, as soon as the first two competitors have begun puzzling, the remaining players will be immediately eliminated. Peachy warns them that these are "Native Amazonian boats" and require balancing skills, further cautioning that if a player's boat sinks, the player will end up swimming: "You might want to think twice about that." The camera pans over to reveal a crocodile sliding into the water. As Peachy reiterates that the first person to complete the puzzle wins the reward, we see time-lapse photography of the puzzle completing itself. Peachy reveals that the reward is a visit from a loved one, and Jenna and HeiDDi cry and cover their mouths. What is with the mouth covering?
