Suddenly, we see two giant mazes scarring the Outback landscape. Jeff refuses to hand over the idol and Just Peachy wrestles it from him. Peachy proudly tells the S12 -- in the most useless corruption of a natural habitat yet -- the mazes took "forty-six tons of lumber; three miles of burlap; two weeks to build." Each maze is identical and contains five numbered checkpoints. Working as a unit, the group has to collect the medallions in order. He kindly adds, "It's about 110 degrees today -- should work up a nice lather." Because there's no obvious advantage or disadvantage, according to Peachy, Kucha will run with the full seven. Seems like a disadvantage to me, keeping seven people together in a maze as opposed to five.
Each team does a cheer and heads off into the maze where we all hope Jerri will be lost forever. I wonder if the rules forbid them from lifting a team member to see over the maze walls. The teams run around and pretty much demonstrate the opposite of teamwork. Kucha prefers talking about navigating the maze to actually navigating the maze. At one point, Tina gets away from Ogakor and is just running back and forth divided from them by a wall until Colby turns the whole tribe around to follow her. With their five medallions, they haul ass out of the maze and scramble to the finish line, with no knowledge of where Kucha is. At this point, we see how desperately Ogakor wanted to win. As the team celebrates, Peachy says, "Yesterday, sittin' in the water, Amber, tears rollin' down your face, you said, 'I'm sick of losin'.'" Amber strips off her sunglasses, flips her hair, and drones, "Do you see any tears right now? If there were, there'd be tears of joy." I think she might be flirting through her hypothetical tears.
Morning dawns at Kucha and Jeff tells us that Kucha is "not the family [they] appear to be," and that there's animosity among the tribe. I don't know who could possibly think this tribe resembled a family. The Manson family, maybe. Jeff tells Alicia, "That's a name I'm gonna be happy to write down," but we don't hear whose name, although we can make an educated guess. Michael tells Kimmi he's not in Alicia and Jeff's pact and Kimmi looks relieved. Alicia tells us that Kimmi's eviction makes the most sense. Rodger says it could be an interesting Tribal Council because the others assume he's voting for Kimmi, but that that's most likely not the case. He then says, "The only person I keep my word with out here is Elisabeth, and I think she's the same way towards me." Better be. In the boat with Mike and Rodger, Elisabeth is upset that Alicia is bitching about Kimmi behind her back; she says Alicia should tell Kimmi directly because she doesn't wanna hear it. Rodger tells us in a confessional that they were talking about voting off Alicia -- they'd miss her because she's a good cook and she's athletic, but "there might be a little more harmony around, too." We then get shots of various Kucha members with slow-motion plotting faces.
