Snapping Duck Bay, home of the first all-duck production of West Side Story. The teams row up to the field of play for the reward challenge. In this game, each team will put three people into each of two boats. The boats will battle, trying to sink each other. Each boat has some corks plugging up holes in the sides, and the corks can be pulled out using an assigned grappling hook. You can also use the hook to pull boats to you, or to push them down in the water to make them sink faster. ["Or you can use the hook to gouge out one of the opposing tribemates' eyes out. Doesn't that seem like a liability issue?" -- Wing Chun] Each boat also gets a bucket that you can use to bail water out of your boat, or to throw it in the other team's boat. Peachy unveils the reward, which is, as expected, a pile of pillows and blankets. Also, there will, of course, be a piece of the buried-treasure map as well as the opportunity to loot the other tribe.
Peachy now asks who's going to sit out for Drake, and he's told that Jon and Michelle will be the chosen ones. The team members now arrange themselves in the little boats. Ryan-O, Osten, Rupert, and the Best Buds (Shawn and Burton) are each taking charge of a boat, with the chicks and Andrew scattered among the boats. I say that only because that's the way they shoot and present the thing. The first notable event once the boats get tangling with each other is that Osten almost falls out of (and sinks) his own boat. Nice. Trish manages to pull a plug out of one of the Morgan boats. Osten pulls a plug from the Rupert boat. What Osten, Lill, and Tijuana don't seem to realize is that once your boat gets a couple of plugs pulled, it's mostly a race against time to keep your boat afloat as long as possible, and one of the things you want to do here is keep your boat as level in the water as you can, which minimizes the water coming in. Osten instead positions himself in the corner of his boat, and Lill winds up near him, so they've got the corner of the boat pushed so far down in the water that they're basically sinking themselves. Once Osten gets his boat backed away from everyone and his group once again gets the boat more level in the water, things start to look up for them. Elsewhere, Rupert works on pushing the Ryan-O boat down with the hook.
