So now we're at the challenge, and Jeff calls everyone in. Asked to talk about the advantages they enjoy in island experience, Eliza, hilariously, is so over-the-toppily happy and excited that they have food and water and shelter that nobody believes her. I don't blame them, really. It sounds like bullshit because of her delivery, even though it's true. When Joel says he doesn't believe it at all, Jon comments, "You guys are dumber than you look." Joel says that's fine if it's true -- they can "get fat and happy" while the Airai wins the challenges.
So in this challenge, you assemble four jigsaw-puzzle wheels, and you put them on a cart. Then you push the cart through some gates, then you dig up some planks from a sand pit, then you use them to complete a bridge and push your cart over it. Then you reach a big turning wheel, and you use the pieces of your four puzzle wheels to complete it so you can rotate it and raise a wok of fire (my new cooking show!) and win the challenge. Hey, want to know what you're playing for? Immunity! Also, winners get flint.
Basically, this is a blowout. From the very beginning, Malakal is not in it. They're behind right from the assembly of the wheels. At one point, the Malakal cart, once they get it going, wipes out so abruptly that Eliza, sitting in the cart (both tribes have people sitting in the carts, so I assume you had to do that, though Jeff didn't say), pitches forward and takes a header into something. It's clear that she's really in some discomfort, but she clambers back in so that they can go. In the sand pit, it kind of looks like Malakal might be catching up, but I don't think they really are. They're just...in the same vicinity. Airai works on the turnstile, and seriously, it's not that close. The fans raise the wok, and raise the roof in celebration. So that's one point for inexperience, eh? Jeff congratulates Airai and gives them immunity, and tells Malakal that they'll have to show up to tribal council and send somebody out.
As an unhappy Malakal returns to camp, Jonathan interviews that the other tribe just wanted it more than they did: "They just had more heart out there." As some of them chat in the water, Cirie puts in a pitch for her own value. She then interviews that as they prepare for tribal council, she really has no idea what she's going to do at all. Asked what he brings to the tribe, Jon tells the group that it's "morale" and "entertainment value." Crickets chirp, and then he admits that's all he can think of, and then they laugh. Funny 'cause it's true! And then Jon does a big interview where he claims that he has the absolute ability to make the game go in either direction, to the Jonathan/Ami/Eliza/Yau-Man group, or to the Parvati/Ozzy/Amanda/James group. Of course, unless he knows what Cirie is doing, he doesn't actually have this ability at all.
