This one builds it's elements from earlier this season to see if players have learned anything. Step 1 is Crawl Through Mud (more mud than the first time), Step 2 Grab a Pig, Step 3 Solve a Tiki Puzzle, Step 4 Walk a Balance Beam (it's wider this time), and Step 5 Shoot a Slingshot (if players aren't hitting the target after 10 minutes, they'll be allowed to move closer). Just an FYI, hope it was okay to post.

Edited to change the title of the topic , lets speculate for now that this is indeed EP13 RC due to the new vidcaps for EP12 RC posted in Spoilers/Clues/Speculation EP12 ..puddin

Thanks puddin.

If this is true, then we know Eliza (grab a pig) or Chris and Scout (walk a beam) will not win.

Chris has been practicing his balance problem.  :()() He took crawling lessons from Scout.

WOOHOO Survivor Fever posted more about  the TV Guide article  **:)**

http://www.survivorfever.net/tvg_superchallenge.html


Inside Survivor: Vanuatu's Episode 12 Reward Challenge: "Redemption"
(TV Guide 11.28.04)
Warning:  Show spoilers in this article.  If you do not wish to read spoilers please return the Survivor: Vanuatu page

Survivor tribe members thinking that once through the mud was enough had better think again.  This week's [Episode 12, airdate: Thursday, December 2, 2004] "Redemption" reward challenge builds in elements from earlier this season to see if players have learned anything.  How tough is it?  Producer John Kirhoffer gave [TV Guide] a sneak peek - including the supersecret sketch - at just what the players will face - (Linda Holmes, TV Guide)



Redemption Challenge Overview
View Enlarged Image

Step 1  -  Crawl Through Mud
The 18-member "Dream Team" used to test the challenges thought that the first mud crawl was too easy.  So truckloads of dirt were brought in to make the mud, um, muddier.  And vertical sticks were added for a deeper slither in the muck.

Step 2  -  Grab a Pig
Borrowed from local residents, the pigs were marked so they could be returned to their rightful owners after taping.  And since the show is bound by specific animal-handling guidelines, pig throwing is out and gentle tossing of the swine into their stinky pens is in.  Which is too bad, says Kirhoffer.  "We had so much fun with the pig catching.  And we've never hurt an animal on Survivor - well except for the pig that got killed in Australia, but that was different."  [Player Michael Skupin slaughtered a wild boar for food.]

Step 3  -  Solve a Tiki Puzzle
For this part of the challenge, a local carver made several identical 5-foot-tall tikis that the show's art department later turned into puzzles.  "They drilled a hole down the middle then chopped them up into five or six pieces," Kirhoffer says.

Step 4  -  Walk a Balance Beam
After players decided to crawl instead of walk across the too-narrow balance beam in the September 23 episode, Kirhoffer decided to make this one wider to ensure that players would actually walk the plank.

Step 5  -  Shoot a Slingshot
The store-bought slingshots are dressed up to look rustic.  And since this is the final portion of the challenge, the stunt is designed to avoid what Kirhoffer calls "total mission failure."  So if players aren't hitting the target after 10 minutes, they'll be allowed to move closer.  "We've gotta go home for dinner," he says.


*************************************

'Redemption' Challenge - More Details
Has 5 'stages'

- Stage #1 has 5 lanes thru the mud crawl...only first 4 to finish crawl advance to stage #2.

- Stage #2 has 4 pigs to catch "Pig Sty-10 piglets, 4 marked for catching, rest are decoys" . So each of the 4 contestants at this point has to catch 1 pig. Only first 3 to get a pig into pig pen advance to stage #3.

- Stage #3 has 3 puzzle poles (5ft tall) to assemble tiki puzzles composed of 5-6 pieces. Only first 2 to finish advance to stage #4.

- Stage #4 has a 10' ladder climb to 2 balance beams (5 inches wide) over a 30'x60' cargo net. Both competitors advance to stage #5.

- Stage #5 has 2 shooting tables each with high powered slingshots and ammo. Targets are 2 towers holding 3 tiles, counterweighted pulley system raises fire to to wok atop tower.

- Winner is first person (of remaining two contestants) to light wok.

- Prize is an automobile?


Typically during the Episode 12 Super Challenge, Survivors compete for a vehicle prize.  The winner of this challenge will be awarded a Pontiac G6

Im going to watch it right now Texan...
It was edited ..Chris & Ami went out ,Ami was ahead , we never saw Chris on the balance beam
I think Chris only went out once..in Survivor Live John Kenney said that he & Jules went out the most for their teams as the others dumped there juice to go to the back of the line to let the faster ones go ahead of them .. just to note , Eliza was FAST !

Read this ,just to add to the confusion ~
EP12 challenge or EP13 ??  
The drawing was for the design of the challenge, and it shows lanes for 5 competitors in the Mud Crawl (part 1), and 3 pig pens for the 3 winners of the 4 competitors of the Pig Grab (part 2), and 3 Tikis for the 3 competitors of the Tiki Puzzle (part 3), and 2 Balance Beams for the last two competitors (part 4). There were only 5 competitors to start with.

The mud crawl will favor the smaller people...Julie and Eliza...Ami did well int eh pig challenge I can see her getting by and Ami and Eliza are good at the puzzles... i think if they can get past the mud and pig the fianl 2 will be Eliza and Ami

One more question...if it is made for 5 competitors...wouldn't ep 12 still have 6?

Maybe Two go this week ..or TV Guide messed up and this Challenge is for EP 13 ? It seems more likely because ..would they really give the car away so early?

LOL @ Scout..she doesn't stand a chance ! I was thinking redemption may have something to do with Eliza and the pigs or Chris and the balance thingy , which to note..they made wider .

WHAT? Two go? No way!  CBS hasn't even hinted at this.

Why would they make the beam wider? They should have given them more of a challenge and made it thinner.

They should have put little nails sticking up out of it this time if they want to ensure that they walk it, ones that will stick up enough to hurt knees but not go through shoes so they can walk it but if they try crawling it would hurt...lol.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone...

Ewww, didn't Scout scoot (sorry, could resist) across the beam the first time? That means, it would hit her in the... ?:).

EWWWWWWW  :()()

ETA : From what I can tell by the new vidcaps for EP12 's RC , this would almost have to be EP 13's RC ,thats why we see only 5 mud crawl slots , whatever. Cool ..we now know what the RC is for Ep 13 and the reward of course without a doubt is the car .. ;)
The title in TV Guide Inside Survivor: Vanuatu's Episode 12 Reward Challenge: "Redemption"
I cant see this being EP12 IC ..do we ever have back to back physical challenges in one episode? My guess is that EP12's IC is something less physical such as gross food or another Q&A . It's to hard to say without any new vidcaps ??

I was wondering when and if a food challenge would happen. Aren't they waiting a liitle long to do it? I thought it happened with more Survivors left or possibly even on the loved ones visit. Gees, PI food challenge occurred when they were still two tribes.
