The next morning Cirie tells Mikayla and Sarah they need to break up Culpepper and Sierra.

Sarah likes the idea.
The tribal members join Jeff on the shore to begin the reward challenge. The winners will get to attend an old fashion BBQ with all kinds of food and a chance to spend a time with their loved ones.

The challenge involves the contestants being tied together in groups of three and making their way through an obstacle course. They must then go to a table to release a key used to unlock sandbags that will be used to knock down several blocks.

The last person left standing holding their buoy will win and be safe at the next tribal council. Aubry is the first one out quickly followed by Sierra. Andrea is out then Sarah. Cirie drops her buoy and she is out. Troy losses his balance and is out. 18 minutes into the challenge and Mikayla, Tau and Culpepper remain. Mikayla drops and now it is between Culpepper and Tau.
