Peachy begins the challenge, and narrates their progress in untying the knots. Matt is off to an early lead, followed closely by Jenna, then Butch, then Rob. HeiDDi's not even worth mentioning at this point. Or at any point in this challenge, for that matter. Peachy announces, "Rob still on number one," and Rob quickly responds, "I'm on two," so Peachy corrects himself: "Rob's up two." He then announces -- a little too enthusiastically -- "HeiDDi, puttin' all that bicep into it! Gruntin' and groanin'!" and also, "Jenna, not thinkin' about her tonsils at all!" We see more shots of fumbling hands, tangled ropes, and bared teeth.
Butch makes it out of the cage first, and runs very much like he dances -- all elbows and knees. Matthew is right behind Butch, followed by Rob. As they begin the puzzle, Peachy announces, "The three men are in it!" before half-heartedly encouraging HeiDDi and Jenna not to give up. Jenna is finally out of her cage -- I don't know why she didn't just slide between the bars? -- as Rob moves on to the swing and begins decoding. Matthew also finishes his puzzle and joins Rob at the "decoding station." Peachy yells back to the others, "Don't quit, guys! They're stuck on the message!" Meanwhile, the camera pans over to HeiDDi, all knotted up in her ropes and, obviously, still in the cage. Butch has to wait about five minutes for Peachy to approve his puzzle before advancing to the rope swing, which in his case is less "swing," and more "dragging with feet running on the ground."
By now, Matthew has worked out the cryptic "Second Bundle" clue, retrieved the key, and climbed his ladders as Peachy spazzes, "Matthew has his lock undone! Down the flying fox!" Matthew shrieks as he scoots down the zipline and grabs the key with a hearty jump. Peachy proclaims Matthew the victor, and is HeiDDi still in her cage? Matthew runs a lap through the perimeter of the challenge before screaming, "This thing better be gassed up!" He gets in the car, and honks the horn twice. It must be pretty exciting to have your own set of wheels when you've gone through life with your own driver. Rob seems genuinely happy as he runs over to join him, and Matthew urges Rob into the car. The girls grumpily walk over, too, until Matthew announces that he's got the air conditioning on, causing them to pick up the pace and get in the car. As Butch joins them, Jenna yells, "Get in and feel the air conditioning for the first time in thirty-four days!"
It's time for the "tailgate party," and Matthew cutely begs Peachy to let him "share it with everyone. Please!" But this week, Peachy doesn't think it's better to give than to receive, and snits, "It's not happening." He preaches that Matt's choice could ultimately work for or against him. Matthew tells the group that he made a deal with Rob prior to the challenge, but that he'd been hoping he'd be able to include more people. Butch looks particularly demoralized by the news that there won't be a hamburger in his immediate future. Peachy commands the losers back out of the car and banishes them back to camp while Matthew embraces Rob,whose feet may or may not be off the ground, bent at the knee, and crossed behind him.
