In the second episode of Survivor Australia, the contestants are given a tough challenge.
Host LaPaglia describes, 'You must race out to the water to retrieve four hanging buoys. You will then make their way to the top of a tall tower. One at a time you will dive back in to retrieve four more buoy tied under the water. Once you have all eight buoy at the top of the tower, you will then attempt to shoot them into a basket. The first tribe to get all in eight in wins immunity.'
As the host finishes speaker, the contenders hoop is shown with all eight buoys, while the champions have zero.
Once the challenge has been completed, the contenders win.
The third episode of Survivor Australia sees the teams go head-to-head in a new challenge, this time the castaways battle in a race of endurance, strength and mind.
In this challenge, seven members of each tribe have to push a giant wheel around a course, while two more tribe mates stand on top. Using a grappling hook, the two members atop the wheel will need to fish baskets with puzzle pieces, once all the baskets are collected, the final two tribe mates must use the pieces inside to solve a puzzle. First team to solve a puzzle wins immunity.
Before the challenge even starts, a completed 'contenders' puzzle is shown.
Later, after the gruelling challenge - the contenders win.
In the fourth, and most recent, episode of Survivor Australia the race really heated up, pushing the teams physically and mentally.
The immunity challenge in this episode saw the tribe members have to cut three seperate bits of rope which would release a giant ball. The ball then had to be rolled under a net. At the bottom of a steep ramp, all team members would have to first climb over and then hoist the ball over the wall. Finally, the rope had to be thrown over a beam, allowing the ball to be thrown at targets. The first team to smash all four targets won immunity.
In the explanation to this challenge, a 'champions' flag is won.
Sure enough, the champions go on to win the immunity challenge sending the contenders to tribal council .
It's unclear if this editing is simply a coincidence or intentional.
