With Bob, the contestants hiked for 90 minutes up rough hills and rocks. Fiona was desperate to win the whole time, but Bob had to slow her down because she was going too fast.

Jillian was impressed because Kristie jumped off with no fear. Secondly, Bob took Fiona to an 8m climbing tree where she climbed it and then had to jump onto a bar 1m from where she was. She did this after a few minutes of Bob telling her that she will not fall. Thirdly, Jillian took Shane to a short abseiling wall. They didn't abseil, but run down it from the top to the bottom. Shane beat Jillian's time by 3 seconds. Finally, Adro and Bob went to another climbing tree, but this one was 25m high. Adro didn't have a problem climbing the tree, but when he go to the top, he was told that he had to jump off, (harnessed of course).

When completed, they had to get back to the land and run around the pond four times. They then had to get back on the bikes and ride all the way back to the finish line. Adro was in the lead most of the time until the running part. Kristie overtook him and she won immunity.

Kristie lost 8.1kg because she gained 5.1kg last week by water-loading, Fiona gained 0.8kg, Shane lost a small 2.8kg and Adro lost 3.7kg.

It was time for a very special weigh-in. The eliminated eight were weighed-in for the first time since leaving the house. AJ made it very clear that anyone who gained weight would leave immediately. Wal gained 800 grams and he left immediately. After everyone was weighed in, AJ told them that one of them would be back into the competition. Over the next week, that one person will be decided.

Who ever loses the most weight out of them will remain in the competition and be one of the final four. Jo jumped onto the scale with an ordinary loss of 2kg. Next was Cat who lost a disappointing 1kg. Harry had to lose at least 4kg to win. He lost an amazing 10kg and was rewarded by being back in the final four.
