After the shortest opening credits sequence ever, it's morning at Nobag. After some symbolic elephant vs. gorilla confrontation, Ken and Bob are checking the nets for fish. They've caught two big ones, although they're looking kind of dead. Ken reminds us that he's not an outdoorsy kind of person, but this game has allowed him to do something he would have never done otherwise. Ken and Bob bring their catch back to shore, and Crystal says the large catfish they caught looks like a "mini-shark." I think it looks much more like a catfish, which is what it is. Crystal makes me feel like Jacques Cousteau. The catfish is moving, so I guess it wasn't dead before. It sure did pick the wrong time to start fighting for its life, though. With that, Bob starts building something out of a used can. The others marvel at his intelligence except for Ken, who tells us that Bob isn't here to play the game. He's just here to build things. "That's stupid," Ken says. But useful, as Bob managed to make a grilling pan by flattening out the can, and now it's grilled catfish fillets for everyone! Ken says he's ready to get rid of Bob and take charge.
Reward challenge time! The contestants will divide into two teams of three. Team members will be tied together and race through a swamp and collecting gear-shaped puzzle pieces. Once all seven pieces have been collected, they must put them on a board so that all the gears work together to raise a flag. The first team to do so moves onto the final round, where the three players will compete against each other to solve a sliding puzzle. The first person to solve the sliding puzzle wins. And what are they playing for? Well, it's time for the family visit! Oh, except not really, as Probst says that he's sorry, but their family members are totally not here. But they are on videos loaded onto the product placement cell phone. Crystal is already crying. In the immortal words of Randy: "wah wah wah." Crystal gets to see her message first.
