The tribe got a new pet pig. Leann wins reward, choosing Julie to join her, prompting Julie to plant a kiss on Leann that rivals the Brittney-Madonna kiss. The two picnic on chicken wings at a dormant volcano, discussing strategy. Eliza was livid because the challenge revealed the girl's alliance pecking order. The men saw an opportunity to break the girl's alliance. Ami wins immunity after completing the puzzle challenge first. Scout worries that Julie has charmed Leann and stolen Scout's final four spot. The women and Chris vote Sarge off the island, but some guy named Lea had his torch snuffed out instead. Eight are left. Who will be voted out tonight?
Alinta, Night 24
Piggy is waiting for the tribe as they return to camp. Chris tells the group some lie about how and why he voted for Sarge, thinking this strategy will keep him in the girl's good graces. We'll just wait and see about that Chris.
Scout gets up and Ami steals her pillow while Scout whines about losing her final four spot to Julie, who doesn't deserve it. Scout starts talking to the guys about an alliance with them - she, Twila, and the 2 men. She is aiming for Ami, the strong manipulative contender.
Chris is pleased by this news, telling Chad, "Dude, day 25 and we're still alive. That's all that matters."
Read by Twila: To this challenge you'll bring your pig. Some will push and some will dig. Success depends on how you move through the earth. Today you'll see how much your little piggy's worth.
There will be quite a show of T and A. Camera guy will make sure no one gets in the way. The cleavage is there in the front and the back. Use the most attractive so we won't see Twila's crack.
Over the river and through the woods....
Sorry, got carried away with it being Thanksgiving week and all.
The Reward Challenge
Ami carries the pig to the challenge.
Jeff: The Alinta mascot. Chris: He needs a buff. Jeff: I thought you might want one.
Jeff pulls out the buff and Chris puts it on Piggy, who is placed in a cage.
Jeff: Isn't it nice having a little company at camp? Julie (blushing): Yeah, last night in your tent was heavenly. Jeff: Shhhhhhh! Twila: Not when you're hungry and you want meat.
Jeff starts to explain the challenge and before you know it, they're divided into 2 teams of 4 people, with Chris, Chad, Ami and Eliza, with Eliza being the sack of potatoes sacrificial lamb tied up in orange rope, and Scout, Twila, Leann, and Julie as the other sacrificial lamb tied up in black rope. Three members of the team help the lamb get through an obstacle course: up and over a fence, hitching post, up and over a wall, dig under a log, and finally through a rope maze.
Winning team gets to spend time with a real Vanuatu tribe and enjoy Fear Factor food.
Survivors ready! Julie up and over, Eliza somersaults. Eliza get through the first obstacle before Julie, then gets stuck in the rope. Bottom line - it's a close race with lots of closeup T & A shots of the 2 smallest tribe members. Eliza's team wins. Jeff asks Julie if she is okay after being bumped and banged around. He wants to know if she's crying because she lost or she is hurt. He offers to kiss her boo boos. She says she's crying because she lost after all that hard work. He tells the losers to go back to camp. the winners will get a chance to fill up their bellies and have a great experience. Jeff tells them to take their pig back to camp.
The team flies to their destination with Piggy in tow. Apparently, Piggy is not plane trained, so he pees on the floor. Eliza tells us that it stunk. They wind up in the back country, far from civilization. There are natives all around them. The first order of business is to give the pig to the tribe's chief.
The team receives a smaller pig back, which they decide they don't want to keep. The tribe places garlands around their necks and the tribe dances, sings and stomps. The cheif asks them to dance and they all join in, including Chad with his prothetic leg.
It's time for the Kava ceremony. Note: Kava translated from the native language means Kool Aid.
Eliza: You chug it and spit out your last sip. The bowl was enormous. Almost immediately my mouth and tongue started feeling numb.
Chad is the most affected by the Kava, losing about a trillion brain cells in the process. He can hardly walk and has to lie down.
