Which brings us to the women. We see a shot of the upturned canoe collecting rain, the women not having realized that it won't float very well full of water. The tribe members continue to work outside, and Shawna complains that she's very cold. At least she's wearing a raincoat, as is everyone else except Joanna, who's stumbling around in her bathing suit. Shawna explains in a rainy interview that the rain came on suddenly and now they're being pummeled by this "ridiculous, horrendous storm." She complains that the ground has fallen through, their stakes are flimsy, and they didn't finish their shelter on time. Right now, she explains, they're focusing on building the fire because the fronds are "crap." They're trying to weave them together in order to maintain the fire, which is their "lifeline." And someone's been watching a little too much Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. The women stand around and look perplexed while Deena comments, "I can't believe how bad we suck." As we see more shots of the women ineffectually fussing in the rain, Shawna wraps up by telling us that they thought they'd have more time because they forgot they were in the Amazon, where it rains daily.
Morning dawns, and the rain has decreased to a piddle. The men paddle their canoe and arrive at a challenge. A challenge already! And no clue! Peachy welcomes the tribes to their first reward challenge, which he says will test how well they communicate with each other. He claims that "their ability to listen to each other and take direction" will determine the outcome, and all the women then stare and point at Christy. Because she's deaf! And she can't hear! And so she can't be expected to listen, can she? Thirty puzzle pieces are scattered throughout a clearing in the jungle. Each tribe will pick one member to act as a guide, while the other members will be blindfolded in pairs. The guide will vocally navigate the pairs through the muddy, obstacle-strewn course. Once all the pieces are gathered, the tribes can remove their blindfolds and begin piecing the puzzle together. The first tribe done will win the award. Peachy announces that the river beyond their camp contains a lot of food and "really big fish." The best way for them to catch them is with "fish bait," and Peachy dramatically unveils a jugful of bloody, pink animal parts. They all cheer because they like clumps of bloody, pink animal parts. It's a lot of whatever it is, and Peachy promises that it will provide a lot of food. Gross as it looks, the tribes could probably cook the bait and eat it, but that probably won't occur to them. Jaburu agrees to sit out Christy, and says Joanna will be their guide, while Butch will lead Tambaqui.
