First up we’ve got the reward challenge. It’s called “Cage Tigers” and here’s how it works: The tribe will split into two teams of five. And since there are 11 players, that means someone will not play the game and has no shot at reward or no chance to be sent to Ghost Island.
Two players will start out in a boat far out in the ocean. They will then race to rescue the other three players who are locked in cages. Once they have all three players to shore, they use the keys that they gathered to unlock a large circus net that is covering puzzle pieces. They then race the massive puzzle pieces to the finish station where they will race to solve the puzzle. What they don’t know is that there are extra pieces they don’t need. Of course the team who finishes the puzzle first wins reward.
The winning five will be flown by chopper to a bluff overlooking the islands where they will enjoy a picnic. The winning team also will send someone from losing team to Ghost Island. And again, the one person who wasn’t picked gets no reward and no shot at Ghost Island. And since the teams were decided by schoolyard pick, it’s going to be brutal.
