With that, the challenge begins. Both tribes decide to put men up as the gutter-holders, and both tribes immediately put their gutter sections together to create one big long slide leading straight to the barrel. Apparently, the people who thought of this challenge thought they'd all hold their gutters up so the water would have to flow from side to side, creating waterfalls all the way down the tower and making the whole process much more difficult and take longer. But they didn't, so the challenge is actually really easy. La Flor gets an early lead because their water pourer, NaOnka, doesn't freak the fuck out and splash water everywhere like Holly does for Espada.
La Flor's puzzle pieces are released first, although Esapada isn't far behind. Probst comments that the win will come down to the "wisdom" of the old women against the "enthusiasm" of the young women. As it turns out, wisdom fails to realize that they're trying to create a symbol from their buffs, while enthusiasm, seemingly lead by Kelly B. although all four women seem to work very well together, is pretty awesome at puzzles. It comes down to the last piece, but then ... it doesn't fit. Probst claims that Espada is "back in it," but come on. La Flor has one piece to figure out while Espada's puzzle isn't even close. Sure enough, La Flor solves the puzzle and wins immunity. Espada shouldn't feel bad, though - even if they'd used the stupid Medallion, I still don't think it would've given them enough of headstart to win. But of course, Probst asks Brenda, who has no romantic entanglements, if Espada should've used the Medallion. Brenda says "of course" because you shouldn't save things for a later challenge when you need to win "right now." Meanwhile, Brenda's tribe gave up the Medallion in the first place, so, whatever. Also, none of this is an important as knowing whether or not Brenda has a boyfriend. During the slo-mo walk of shame, we of course hear from Jimmy Johnson, who says that the Cowboys once lost the first two games of the season, only to win the Super Bowl. Yes, but the Cowboys had Troy Aiken and Emmitt Smith. Espada has Jimmy T. and Holly.
The old people arrive back at camp. Jimmy Fisherman says something unintelligible to his tribe, then interviews that he "can't even think clearly right now." He chalks that up to "the trauma of the challenge," although I think it's because he's crazy. He says it's only Day 3, but he's already exhausted. He also says he's 48 years old, even though he looks a good decade older than that. Marty asks him what he's thinking about tonight's vote. Jimmy T. loudly and without seeming worried about the wrong person hearing him says he doesn't buy that Jimmy Johnson wants to help anyone win a million dollars except for Jimmy Johnson, so he's voting for him. Marty nods and asks someone named "Jill" what she thinks, but before she gets a chance to say anything, Jimmy T. suddenly gets all agitated; "I gotta say this, and I'm not gonna, I'm not gonna not be heard here! I'm not gonna not be heard." Marty's like, "okay, all right," with an expression on his face that clearly says "chill out, Crazypants." Poor Marty. He seems like an asshole and all, but he is one of the only sane people on that entire tribe. And the only people who aren't insane yet are people we haven't had a chance to actually meet, so Yve and Tyrone and "Jill" may also be crazy. "Sometimes stahs blind people," Jimmy T. says with his Massachusetts accent. How did I come from Connecticut, which is right next to Massachusetts, and yet I speak like a normal person? "I gotta calm down!" Jimmy T. says, and heads off to the woods to probably murder someone.
