Ten daring adventurers journeyed across terrifying seas
and arrived on Scorpion Island.
-This is awesome!
The island immediately split them into two teams...
Of boys versus girls.
They took on the island's first fiendish challenge.
You're nearly there!
Come on, Zach! Pick up the ring and bring it back!
It looked the girl's captain, Lise, was a powerhouse,
high above the chasm of chaos.
She is moving so quickly across those ropes.
I'm fearless and nothing about Scorpion Island scares me.
Please drop it, please drop it.
But the boys' captain, Zach, proved to have a more accurate aim.
Very proud of them and I think we did well and he have this win.
The boys beat the girls...
Well done, boys!
..and won the first island treasure.
Now the island is ready battle with them again.
But both teams will find it much harder than expected.
Lower the canon!
And there's meltdown.
If we didn't win this challenge I would feel like I let my team down.
We can't just ignore it cos we think our own way is better.
This is Scorpion Island.
-Hello, I'm Myleene.
-Welcome to Scorpion Island,
the island that likes to make it tough for anyone that visits here.
Two teams of adventurers are here and they're on a mission to escape.
They won't let the island's devious plans get them down. Oh, no.
No way. They need to be the best
because only one team will escape on the final day.
Scorpion Island relishes in its splendid isolation
and uses its natural world as its impenetrable defence system.
Its virtually impossible ocean and shore gives way
to its dangerous jungles, thick, swampy lagoons,
exotic plants and creatures.
The island is alive.
In recent times, an adventurer came from far across the seas.
He was a fortune hunter whose mission it was
to plunder the island of its legendary treasure.
The treasure that represents its precious life.
He took on the island's challenges, succeeded and won all the treasure.
But he failed in his final escape.
As an ultimate act of revenge, the furious island threw the treasures
deep into its dense jungles, and mysteriously captured
the fortune hunter's spirit and locked it away.
Now ten new adventurers must follow the path he created.
Their mission, escape the island.
They must battle it out in terrifying challenges
and the victors will win island treasure.
The more they win, the greater advantage they'll have
in the final race to escape.
So who is this mysterious fortune hunter and what role does he play?
All in good time, Johnny. All in good time.
What I can tell you is that during our adventurers' time here,
there'll be plenty of twists and turns.
Both teams gathered around the island fire,
the place where the island communicates its plans.
It's time to see who'll be your new team captains
for your second day on the island.
Jeremy. You will be the captain for the girls.
And the captain for the boys is Jordan.
Well done, guys. Let me come to the girls first.
Jeremy, any thoughts or plans?
I just want my team to win. That's all my goal is.
-For your team you wish to captain to victory.
-Easier said than done.
-Good plan, though. I like your style, girls.
Jordan, what are your plans?
My plan is to keep the team together and to keep our confidence high
and to do really well at strategies for the games.
You're talking strategy, you're talking results.
I wish you guys luck. Give yourselves a round of applause.
So the new team captains are Jordan for the boys
and Jeremy for the girls.
They'll now have to lead their teams against the island's tough defences
but they'll be getting help from the fortune hunter.
He's left the adventurers a collection of items
that will be of use to them on their journey.
These relics will help them succeed where he failed.
And one of these is a mysterious ring covered in strange symbols.
'The Fortune Hunter has used the symbols to document the challenges he faced'
'when he battled the island for its treasure.
'but the island wants to stop the adventurers from gaining advice from the Fortune Hunter
'so, in a deliberate act of sabotage,
'has smashed to the symbol ring into pieces.'
'Now the teams must attempt to piece together the shards of the symbol ring
'as quickly as they possibly can.'
Jordan, as team captain, you're automatically going to be playing.
I need to ask you to have a wing man with you
so who would you like to assist you with this trial?
-Peter. Tell me why you've chosen Peter.
Peter is just a nice, relaxed boy. He doesn't get stressed.
He's just a nice friend to be with.
Good tactics. Jeremy, you're team captain for the girls.
I'm going to ask you to choose somebody to help you.
I think I'll go for Natty.
-Natty. Tell me why you've chosen Natty.
-She is very calm.
She's really good at doing puzzles. So I think that's good.
-You do know that this is a race against time?
-So you are going to have to be quick.
-OK, then. Fantastic.
'The team that can complete the ring the fastest will get the right
'to play for an advantage when they take on the island later in the Island Challenge.
'But in true Scorpion Island style,
'the island has added some rogue pieces to make it even more difficult for them.'
'Both teams begin to piece together the symbol ring.
'There are seven pieces of symbol ring here
'but only four make the ring complete. Devious island.
The straight pieces are better.
Not much talking.
We found it quite difficult because the ends of the ring
just didn't quite match.
We got quite frustrated and I don't think I was communicating
that well with Natty, so I think we could have
communicated better a little.
Or maybe it should go like...
Good communicating. Well done.
'The boys are already making good progress.
-'The boys are nearly there.'
-It works now? Does it work?
Yeah, it does.
Peter and Jordan were very clever and very good.
I didn't think they'd be able to do it as fast as they could.
That's it. Well done. You've got it.
'The boys have beaten the girls.'
Lads, that was excellent. Do you think you worked well as a team?
Yeah, very well.
'Because the boys completed the ring in the quickest time,
'they will now be given the chance to play for an advantage
'in the Island Challenge later on.
'And the Fortune Hunter has devised a special trial.
'Carved by the Fortune Hunter, the ring has 26 symbols.
'Peter and Jordan will have 20 seconds to memorise the ring.
'They will then be presented with a group of symbols
'but three of them are not on the symbol ring.
'If they can correctly identify the three rogue symbols, they will gain
'an advantage in the Island Challenge.
'And Jordan's ready.'
I do really well with mental puzzles,
if Scorpion Island was to give me some.
I'm great at memorising things. I love riddles.
OK, as you know, this is a memory trial.
You now have 20 seconds to memorise as many symbols
on this symbol ring as possible.
'Test YOUR memory, too.
'You've got 15 seconds left.'
one. That's it. Your time's up.
Please step away from the barrel.
You have two minutes to remove the ten correct symbols,
leaving the three rogue symbols behind. Do you understand?
-OK. Are you ready?
Right, first... That one isn't.
That one doesn't.
Does that one?
That's the only one.
I know this one does.
Mine and yours. That one does.
That one was.
-Shall we just check these?
'They've chosen their ten symbols
'and are making the most of the time left to double-check.'
-You seem pretty confident.
-You don't want to triple-check?
-OK. You're like, "Just put me out of my misery!"
'Jordan and Peter quickly identified
'the three symbols they believe to be rogue.'
'But did they get it right?'
Before I reveal how you've done, you guys look quietly confident.
Jordan, you knew what you were doing. Peter, you were a demon,
pointing out the symbols.
-Are you feeling confident now?
-I hope so,
because you had the chance to change the pieces, and you don't want to?
OK, time for the big reveal.
OK, first up... You chose the square.
-That is correct.
Next...the rain cloud.
-That is correct.
The third symbol...
'If the boys get the third symbol right, they will gain
'an advantage when they take on the island in today's challenge.'
Boys, congratulations. That was a tough task. You did fantastically.
-Well done. Happy?
-Yeah, very happy.
The boys were correct and now they will be rewarded with the right
to choose whether they go first or second in the Island Challenge.
-Have you always know that you've got a great memory?
-What about you, Peter?
-You didn't know!
-So you surprised yourself?
-Team, you look pleased with the boys.
-I was actually pretty shocked.
-You didn't think they could do it?
-Looking at that one,
I was thinking, is that a road symbol? I haven't seen that before.
So the right members were chosen?
Team captain, I have one question.
Do you guys want to go first or second at the Island Challenge?
-Have a little conference.
It worked last time. It will work this time.
-What is your answer?
-Second it is. Girls, you are up first.
The symbol ring will play an important role
in the adventurers' journey on the island.
And the Fortune Hunter is using the symbols to communicate
a message about the Island Challenge.
A square within a square. Teams within teams.
A rain cloud. Wet conditions.
A lone branch. A single adventurer will have to walk alone.
But this is not the only way the Fortune Hunter can
communicate with the adventurers.
He is about to make contact with them directly.
Team captains Jeremy and Jordan have discovered a rusty casket
lying in the fast-flowing waters of the creek by the River Camp.
Look at it. This thing's old.
Yes, Jeremy, it is one of the Fortune Hunter's relics.
It is a typewriter with a message mysteriously attached.
"Adventurers, I want you to battle
"against the island and succeed where I failed
"when the island took treasures from me.
"Girls, you must do better. On my second day, the Island Challenged me
"to a frightening game at the Venom Cascades.
"You must have a head for heights, have a good game and remember,
"team work is a key."
-What do you think that means?
-I think that is our next challenge.
OK, take it to the level.
Guys! Look what we've found. We have a message from the Fortune Hunter.
It's scary, thinking that he is looking at everything we're doing,
but it is quite a nice feeling
because someone else is on our side, with Scorpion Island
not on our side, trying to keep us here and trap us forever.
Who is the Fortune Hunter, though? It says, "Girls, you must do better."
He must still be alive, then, watching us.
I am not really sure about the Fortune Hunter.
I think he or she is definitely on our side,
but I am just a bit curious about where this person is
and what role they are playing in our challenges,
and if it's actually the island pretending to be the Fortune Hunter.
What if it is the island trying to make us feel like...
-Maybe the island is messing with us.
Because he has to know what is going on to say, "Girls, do better."
Or maybe the island knows what is going on.
'The adventurers have had some help from the Fortune Hunter
'but now the girls will have to face the island alone.'
Following the path that the Fortune Hunter created all those years ago,
both teams will battle against the island.
If they win, they will be rewarded with an island treasure.
The more treasures they are rewarded, the greater the advantage
they will gain in the final race to release the Fortune Hunter's spirit
The island's second treasure is the cactus.
The cactus represent survival in extreme conditions, something
that both our teams need to learn on this extremely guarded island.
The boys have won one island treasure already.
But the girls have none.
They must win today if they are to stop the boys from forging ahead.
First up, it is the girls.
That's Eleanor, Lizzie,
Khadie and today's captain, Jeremy.
This is Under Fire.
Tumbling off the edge of a lake in the heart of the island are
the Venom Cascades, and one member of each team will be suspended
above this terrifyingly high wall of water, armed with a net.
They will have to use this to catch the balls launched at them
from a mighty cannon by two of their team-mates way below.
If a ball is caught, the remaining two members of the team will
have to haul the suspended adventurer as quickly as possible to
the side of the Cascades so they can try to throw the ball
into the collection tub.
Each team will have ten minutes to do this,
and whichever team has the most polls in the tub
at the end of their turn wins.
The teams are playing for the second island treasure, the cactus,
and as the boys won the first, the silver eagle, this could
give them a psychologically crucial lead or it could level the score.
So there is everything to play for as the teams go Under Fire.
So, girls, it is time for Under Fire.
What is needed is a good aim, and you must not be scared of the water.
How do you feel now you know what you're going to be doing?
Feel all right, but I'm the tiniest bit scared of water,
but I have got a good catch, so it will be OK.
-OK. Do you think you will be able to remain calm?
-Guys, how do you think you're going to do?
-Up for a challenge.
I like firing.
-You have got a good aim, then?
How much does it mean for you to win an island treasure today?
-That will be good.
-While you are out there,
doing your stuff, the boys are going to be watching you.
-How do you feel about that?
-Let them watch us! Let them watch us win.
You're going to show them how it's done, are you?
-Not how it's not done.
-It is time to play Under Fire.
The boys have chosen to take this challenge on the second,
which means they can watch the girls
and learn from their triumphs and their mishaps.
It could be a real advantage.
-Girls! Are you ready?
Right now, the girls are in position.
Captain Jeremy over the Cascades, Khadie and Lizzie on the ropes
and Eleanor and Natty at the canon.
Ready to load balls one at a time, prod them into place
and fire them up at their net.
In three, two, one, go!
And they are away.
Khadie and Lizzie of pulling Jeremy into place and here go Eleanor
and Natty with their first shot.
-The first shot has gone way too high.
They'll have to do better.
With the cannon facing, it is not shooting that way.
It's shooting higher.
She needs to direct it lower than it actually is.
The boys are developing their tact...ooh!
She's got one already! She's got a ball.
-That's great news for the girls.
-Only their second shot,
and that's the girls' first catch.
Jeremy does well to net this one, but this is only half of her task.
Lizzie and Khadie have to winch her over to put the ball in the bucket.
Only balls in the buckets count.
That's a good idea. Put your hand in while going across.
You can let go when you get there.
The boys are really thinking this challenge through
and they might well be right. Is Jeremy wasting too much time?
There we go. She's got one. Well done, girls.
Quick! Come on!
You got to go fast as you can in and out. That's what's taking time.
Stop! That's fine!
They're communicating well. Impressive.
What's also impressive is how well Jeremy is coping
with being suspended over the Cascades.
The thing about water that I'm so nervous about is I feel like
when I look into the water all I see is something blue
and when I stare down I just feel like I'm going to fall into it.
She's afraid of water, but here she is above the rapids
at a massive height and unruffled. Can she ramp up her catching?
That was a good shot, but Jeremy's not been fast enough with the net.
Ooh, if that'd been half a metre lower she might have had it.
Have the boys picked up any more tips?
When you hear the tick, get ready because it's coming.
It goes, "Tick, boom."
-As long as we get more than them...
Lower! No, lower!
The girls need to make sure that... Oh, that was so close.
This must be frustrating for Khadie and Lizzie,
because until their team-mates achieve a catch,
there's nothing they can physically do to help.
All they can do is stand and watch and cheer them on.
Sound advice from Jeremy, but will they listen to their captain?
Lower the canon! It's not going to reach!
Lizzie and Khadie are fuming.
They're saying to lower the canon, but the girls aren't listening.
The clock is ticking.
Well, that was closer.
I have a good idea. We should shoot low so we can keep the net down.
Ooh, unbelievably close!
Maybe the girls have got a plan together at last.
Oh, that was so close!
They were unlucky not to get that. It the handle of Jeremy's net.
Maybe they can make the... Oh, no! Off the net again! Unbelievable!
The chances of this happening are so slim. Not once, but twice in a row!
Eleanor and Natty fire the ball
so that it bounces off Jeremy's net. If they can keep this up,
surely it's just a matter of time before she catches a second ball.
-They got a second tennis ball. That's great news.
Eleanor and Natty managed to repeat their aim once again, and this time
Jeremy dips the net at the right moment to make the catch. Brilliant!
And just what the girls needed.
They've used up half of their time
and only have one ball in the tub.
Can they get this one in?
Do what she's doing.
She puts her hand in to get the ball before she gets there.
Pull me! Pull!
They're giving it their all to haul her in.
-That's right, guys!
-Well done! You're doing brilliant!
-Oh, no, this is a disaster!
Jeremy tosses this ball into their tub with too much force
and it bounces straight back out again.
So that one doesn't count, and the girls are still on one.
They need to get a move on, but they can't afford to panic
or they'll lose the aim they just got set.
That was a close shot. They're getting closer now.
They've got another one. That's great news.
Eleanor and Natty's aim was dead on.
Jeremy just needed to hold her net in place
and the ball shot straight in.
Lightly, or they'll bounce out!
Lizzie's right. They can't afford for this one to bounce out as well.
Oh, no! The ball has bounced out again.
This is a shocker! Jeremy hasn't learned from her last mistake,
and drops the ball too firmly again so it bounces back out,
meaning all the efforts here have been for nothing.
You can really see how she feels about that.
I can't believe she dropped it again.
Khadie sounds upset, but the girls need to keep together
as a team and keep totally focused to avoid an absolute collapse.
They've got another one, they're doing well, getting into the flow.
Please, this time, Jeremy, don't let the ball bounce out.
Well, at least she makes this catch look easy.
Just a gentle stretch with the net and the ball goes in.
But as she heads towards the collection tub,
she must be feeling enormous pressure.
She's the girls' captain and it would be awful for her to know
it was her mistakes which set them back.
She looks totally focused. Is she going to get this one in?
As fast as possible, don't let it drop.
That's two balls, brilliant.
But with just three and a half minutes left,
the girls have got to get a wriggle on.
Ooh, just a little bit over.
That was close, but they need to be bang on
if they want to set a score the boys are going to find hard to beat.
They've got another tennis ball in there. They're doing really well.
This one looked so simple.
Eleanor and Natalie shot the ball straight into Jeremy's net.
She avoided the last one bouncing out of the tub.
Can she do it again?
It's all about Khadie and Lizzie pulling her across quickly.
Here she goes.
Go, Go, go!
That's three tennis balls.
Jeremy is three metres above the edge of the Cascades
and so around ten metres higher up than the canyon. How frightening!
They've got another ball in. This could be four.
As Khadie seems to be losing faith, Jeremy makes another neat catch.
It's such exhausting work pulling Jeremy along,
but the team have got to keep their morale up.
They need to believe their hard work is going to pay off.
So, here she goes for another drop. And yes, it's in!
Four balls for the girls, but the pressure is still on,
because we don't know what the boys are going to do.
The main thing is just getting the aim right.
And communication. Everything can change during the game.
If something goes wrong, you have to communicate to get it back.
The girls are communicating so clearly
but with only a minute left, they must be hoping everything
that's going to go wrong already has.
The girls desperately want to win that island treasure
to level things out a little bit.
-They've got another tennis ball.
-Great reactions from Jeremy here.
At the start of a challenge, this ball would surely have got past her,
but now she's up to speed,
she gives it a tidy drop, and that's a catch.
The only problem is there's so little time remaining
for her to try and get it into the tub.
20 seconds left.
Khadie and Lizzie look shattered
but they're going for it to get Jeremy back fast enough.
Yes! It's in! Surely that's got to be the last ball?
Five, four, three, two, one. And your time is up, girls.
That was an exciting end to a thrilling turn for the girls,
which put every member of their team to the test.
Eleanor and Natty took a while to get their aim in with the cannon,
but when they focussed, they got shot after shot on target.
Jeremy put her fear of water aside
and got the hang of catching the balls.
Khadie and Lizzie showed enormous physical strength
and real grit to keep hauling Jeremy along to the tub.
However, it didn't all go the girl's way.
Not once, but twice Jeremy dropped the balls too heavily into the tub
and they bounced back out.
As only the balls still in the tub at the end of the turn count,
while they could've been on seven, they actually ended up on five.
Will that be enough to beat the boys
and win the latest island treasure, the cactus?
We'll find out later.
But how did the girls think this challenge went?
This challenge is pretty important, considering we've lost the last ones,
so we really want to get on a winning streak now.
-Hopefully we will.
-Show people what we can do.
-Because girls are better than boys.
-No doubt about that!
One of the girls thinks there's room for improvement in their team.
I think we have to talk to the team about communication,
because when there is something important we need to do,
we can't ignore it because we think our way is better,
we have to work as a team.
Going in to this challenge, I felt lots of pressure on me
because I knew I had to win this challenge for my friends
and my team-mates, because the boys are leading.
The boys still have to take on the island.
The girls don't yet know if they've won or lost.
They get together to analyse their performance.
What do you think about the challenge?
I think we did really well because we got five balls into the bucket.
We had that sixth ball in, but it bounced out.
Go, go, go!
I'm not being too hard on myself but I think I should've expected
that it would bounce and I should've done it slower.
I think our communication wasn't so good.
Especially to Natty and Eleanor.
Lower the cannon! It's not going to reach!
It would be good if we were going, "Come on, you can do it!"
It's better if we're going, "A bit to the left. Up and down."
-That's what we did.
-Sometimes it puts too much pressure on you.
Your time is up, girls.
The island is so devious. Nobody knows what's going to happen next.
Still to come, it's the boys' turn to battle against the island...
Remember, push it in, don't throw it!
..watched by the fiercely competitive girls.
The pressure's on them because they know how many they've got to get
and they're pressurised.
Only one team can win the island treasure.
It's a battle of boys versus girls.
Before they take on the island challenge and try to beat the girls,
the boys are psyching themselves up
at the Fortune Hunter's abandoned River Camp
and creating a new team chant.
-How about - boys, boys...
Boys, boys, we make lots of noise....
We're trying to work on it and trying to make it better if we can,
but at the moment it doesn't seem to be going right.
We are the boys, we make lots of noise...
We are the boys, we make lots of noise, we like our toys,
we are the best, better than the rest.
I don't like the toys bit, let's take it out.
-Cos we sound like children.
Meanwhile, the girls have returned to tree camp
and have got their chant together.
Five, six, seven, eight.
We will beat the boys, those boys better watch out.
We will beat the boys, those boys better watch out...
Our team chant is really good.
It's short and snappy and actually says something about our team.
We will beat the boys, those boys better watch out.
The boys are still trying to come up with their rhyme.
-We stick together.
Boys forever, we stick together.
Shall we do, like, boys forever. We STICK together!
-Yeah, that's quite cool.
-Shall we do that?
ALL: Boys forever, we'll stick together.
The super-focused girls are already on to their team motto.
I think for a team pledge we should do
"expect the unexpected", because girls are really random, I think.
We'll expect the unexpected.
We chose the motto, "expect the unexpected"
because we never know what's going to happen on the island.
We never know which challenge we're going to face.
We really have to be prepared for anything which is going to come.
ALL: Expect the unexpected.
It seems the boys have given up completely,
but HAVE found a new team-mate.
-What shall we name it?
-Our new arrival.
The newest member to the boys' club.
Next up, it's the boys.
and today's captain, Jordan.
Because the boys won the memory trial, they had the choice
to take on the Island Challenge Under Fire first or second.
They opted to make the girls go first again.
Team captain Jordan, I've got just one question for you -
do you guys want to give first or second at the Island Challenge?
-Second it is.
They watched while Jeremy did what Jordan will have to do later,
hanging above the amazing Venom Cascades trying to use a net
to catch balls shot by team members at a cannon ten metres below.
The boys didn't sound confident the girls would do well.
I don't think they'll get any, I have to be fair.
Seeing Eleanor and Natty's early shots go over gave them some ideas.
Where the cannon's facing, it's not shooting that way,
it's shooting higher than the cannon.
You need to direct it lower than it actually is.
We should always shoot low and always keep the net down.
Jeremy made seven impressive catches, but then it became clear
another crucial part of this challenge was Khadie and Lizzie
having to haul her across to deliver the ball into the tub.
You've got to go as fast as you can, that's what's taking the most time.
Ten minutes, I think.
The boys seem certain they've spotted one time-saving tactic.
I think you should take the ball out of the net before you get to it.
She puts her hand in to get the ball before she gets there.
It was in trying to deliver balls into the tub
that disaster struck Jeremy
as not once, but twice she dropped the balls in too hard,
causing them to bounce back out.
Oh, there they are!
Look, it takes a long time for them to pull in.
As only the balls in the tub at the end of their turn counted,
this meant the girls' final score was five.
Having watched, the boys seemed sure they knew what the key issues were.
The main thing is probably just getting the aim right.
And communication. Everything can change during the game.
If things do change during the game, can the boys
keep sufficiently focused to beat the girl's score of five,
or at least match it in a quicker time?
You just know they're going to go all out to win
and bag the latest island treasure, the Cactus.
This is going to be an awesome second round.
The boys are in position. Jordan over the Cascades,
Dilhan and Peter on the ropes,
and James and Zach at the cannon ready to load balls one at a time,
prod them into place and fire them up at their net.
The girls got an impressive five in round one,
but will the boys be able to keep up their winning streak and do better?
It's time to find out.
-Guys, are you ready?
In three, two, one, off you go!
And they're away. Zach's loading in their first ball,
Dilhan and Peter adjusting Jordan's position.
And here it goes. No!
-Way too high, they're going to have to correct that.
-Here they go again. Ooh, that was close.
-Keep it there!
Jordan wants them to aim the same again.
And they have and it's - ooh!
That was so close, but it's the wrong side of the netting.
None of the aspects of this game are easy.
Pulling will be testing, aiming is tricky
and catching is ultra tough.
But the boys managed to get on target really quickly
and this was their closest yet.
Centimetres higher, Jordan would have caught it.
But as it is, the ball smacks into the bottom of his net.
Maybe next time?
-Put it down all the way, then go up.
-They're aiming again.
Ooh, far too high! No catch there.
Dilhan and Peter waiting on the sidelines.
-They can't do anything until a ball is in the net.
-Keep it low!
Jordan's repeating a tactic Dilhan came up with
while the boys were watching the girls, keep aiming it low.
But they're not doing it, that was too high again!
The pressure's on them, because they know how many they've got to get
and they're really pressurised.
Another great shot from James and Zach
and Jordan was unlucky not to get it.
He twists the net to go for a slight catch
but hits the ball with the handle and accidentally bats it away.
While they were watching the girls, the boys thought this looked easy
but it seems to be proving tougher than they expected.
If they keep their concentration, they must get a catch soon.
-Still no balls for the guys.
-Down a bit!
James and Zach don't seem to be listening to Jordan,
or perhaps they aren't fully in control of the cannon yet.
Khadie's looking nervous, but the more the boys miss,
the less chance they have of beating the girls' score of five.
Ooh, and he's caught it!
Oh, no! That was amazing!
Jordan reacts so swiftly here,
catching the ball between his legs. It's impressive,
but he doesn't transfer it into the net before it drops.
Well, it's a confidence booster if nothing else.
And that one's bounced up into Jordan!
They're going again.
-They've got one tennis ball. This could be close.
Now, Dilhan and Peter have to get him across.
Jordan, remember, put it in, don't throw it!
Will he learn from Jeremy's mistake and place it gently?
Oh, it's fallen out! He's done exactly the same thing as Jeremy.
So, James and Zach's aim is perfect this time -
straight into Jordan's lowered net.
And Dilhan and Peter haul him across quickly.
Natty seems worried, but perhaps she needn't be,
as Jordan makes the same mistake Jeremy did in the girls' turn.
He drops the ball in too firmly, causing it to bounce back out again.
Bad news, and at just over three minutes in,
the boys have yet to score.
Keep going! You can do it!
The boys need to hurry to get Jordan back in position.
-Stop there! Stop!
Communication is key here.
This looks like a communication breakdown.
Zach and James have just fired at Jordan's back.
-He is spinning himself back around.
-Keep it down!
There have been quite a few tennis balls,
and they haven't got one in the bucket yet. Not good.
And even worse, Jordan's spun around again,
so he's not even facing the cannon.
Well, Jordan was ready for the mental test of the memory trial,
but is the sheer physicality of this challenge proving too much?
He gets so far out of position that for a while
he can't even see the balls coming at him,
and so catches are impossible.
Then, just when he manages to wriggle round,
Zach and James shoot one straight at him.
It can't be good for his concentration,
and the situation looks bad.
With less than half their time gone, they're still on zero.
Come on, Jordan!
Oh, good shot, they've got one in the net.
Now, can they get one in the tub, too?
-Dilhan and Peter are hauling him across.
-Just pull harder!
Keep going! Come on!
-So they've got one in the bucket, that's good news.
Now they need four more just to even the girls' score.
Zach and James shoot straight into the net again,
and Dilhan and Peter get him to the tub quickly.
But it's Jordan himself who comes up with a clever new tactic.
He uses the rope to lift the tub up,
so he can drop the ball in really gently.
Jeremy must now be wishing
she'd thought to try this oh-so-careful approach.
Still, the girls did get five in, so the boys have got a lot to do.
Oh, that was so close. It hit the rim of the net.
The boys were unlucky not to get a catch here - it just bounces away.
But they need more than luck now - they need to get totally focussed
to get anywhere near matching the girls' score.
-Another tennis ball in there. This could go to the wire.
Put it in!
-And it's in!
-So that's two tennis balls in the bucket.
They need three more to tie, four to win.
This is more like it! Good aim, a careful catch, speedy hauling,
and most importantly a careful placement.
Can they keep it up?
Jordan, a bit more this way!
The boys have developed an interesting technique.
They're pushing the cannon down and pulling it up at the last second.
Another tennis ball now!
This'll be the third one. This is getting close.
But with only just over three minutes left,
-they still have work to do.
Yes, it's in!
That's three tennis balls in, they need two more to tie, three to win.
And after a slow start it's beginning to feel
believable that they might have a chance of winning.
This is great stuff.
The question is, can they move quickly enough to claw it back?
They're still wasting time. This is good.
They either do it too high or too low. They have to get it perfect.
Well, the girls are starting to sound a bit defensive!
It must be frustrating waiting to... Oh!
Go, go! We've got four.
Come on, boys!
That was another quality catch, but Jordan seems to be having trouble
getting the ball out of the net.
-Come on, Jordan!
-This could be a disaster.
-He's got it!
Put it in!
And it's in.
This was a real rollercoaster ride of emotions - a terrific catch
and fast transfer followed by an awful few seconds
when it seemed Jordan was never going to get the ball.
Finally, he drops their fourth one in. Now, just over two minutes left.
Is it enough for them to get two more catches and the win?
Oh, that was so close. It hit the wrong side of the netting.
-That was too high.
But that was really close again.
-They wasted time.
-They need two more to win.
Speed is an issue,
but they've also got to make sure they keep their composure.
Jordan doesn't look very composed.
-He nearly caught that on the rebound.
Oh! But that one's gone behind him.
-They've got another one in the net!
-But they have to deliver it too,
and they are really running short of time now.
This is so tense!
-There's one minute left!
-One minute! Come on!
He's got it in!
In the last minute, the boys have matched the girls' score of five.
Now, can they get one more in in the dying seconds of the game?
Go! Keep going!
So it's neck and neck. One more tennis ball and they've won.
-That's far too high.
-I'll get it.
-Time is up! Time is up.
And I've got that down as a tie.
That was so close, cos Jordan got a ball in the net,
but he didn't get it in the bucket.
Exciting stuff! If the boys had just had a few seconds longer,
they'd surely have got their sixth ball in.
But as it is, they ended up with the same as the girls.
So how do the teams feel about all this?
I think we did good.
I think we did really good, I even think we beat the girls.
Oh, I feel happy because it's a tie, so I don't know who's going to win
but I'm happy we at least tied with them.
We did our best, that's as good as we can get.
You can't get any better than that. Everyone tried their hardest.
If Dilhan and Peter could have pulled a little faster -
I'm not saying they weren't great, they were really great -
but if they'd gone a bit faster,
we would have been able to win that, hands down.
Well, Jordan, this was a challenge packed with what-ifs.
What if either team had got their aim in quicker?
And what if balls hadn't bounced out of the tubs or off the nets?
The way things turned out, it was really close.
Both team captains pulled off some solid catches,
and although sometimes communication broke down, the girls
and boys both delivered impressive performances.
The girls did make one more catch than the boys, but had one
more ball bounce out, while the boys were seconds away from getting
their sixth ball in, so both teams ended up with scores of five.
Well, the big question is, which team won?
It all came down to the clock,
and to which team got their fifth ball in quicker.
The girls did it at nine minutes and 22 seconds,
but the boys did it at nine minutes and three seconds.
And so, by the narrowest of margins, they are the victors
and will take the latest treasure, the cactus.
Wow. What a game, guys.
Now, girls, you got five tennis balls in the bucket.
Boys, you got five too.
But the island has decided there is still only one winner.
And that winner...will be revealed at tonight's Island Fire.
So, join us later!
While they wait to be summoned to the Island Fire,
the boys don't know if they've won or lost.
My mum would always say, if you win, you win, so that's brilliant,
and if you lose, you learn something.
-For next time.
-Yeah, you learn something from it.
We've got loads more days to try and win more treasure.
And never put yourself down when you lose or anything.
Don't take yourself too far. You are responsible for everything you do.
If we do lose...
And only give out criticism that you can take personally.
Like, I couldn't take you saying to me, "You're rubbish,"
so I'm not going to call you rubbish.
Think before you say things.
Even though you weren't rubbish - nobody was rubbish.
It might hurt the person's feelings if you say,
"You were rubbish at this, you could have done better."
Think how you would think.
If you wanted to say, "I think you could have done better,
"next time, learn from this experience
"and try a little bit harder" - like, break them down gently.
Don't just go straight into the fact.
But we're not going to have to do that,
cos I'm sure everyone in this team is going to give it 110%.
ALL: Go, boys!
-The sun sets after a merciless day.
The girls sit beside one of the Fortune Hunter's relics,
and, as they wait for the results of the Island Challenge,
they all think they could have done a little better.
There was a bit of a communication breakdown between the people
shooting the cannon and the people pulling me left to right.
They weren't really talking much, so if we got that fixed,
maybe we would have done it better.
Me and Lizzie were pulling Jeremy and Eleanor
and Natty were trying to shoot the balls to Jeremy, and they weren't
listening, cos we were trying to tell them to pull it up a bit.
If we do win, we still have to focus,
but especially if we don't, that's probably the reason why,
and we're going to have to really talk about it
before the next challenge.
The issues with communication were not what we expected,
because when Jeremy was talking to Natty and Eleanor,
that was good communication, with hand signals and things.
Then Khadie and I were so much involved with communication,
we were trying to say "move down",
or, "We need to move you a bit more, Jeremy."
Me being able to lip-read I think it could have been helpful in a way,
cos my team-mate on the pontoon might not have heard.
They said I would have been able to tell them.
Left a bit!
If we don't win, I'll feel like I've let my team down.
All of this comes down to the team captain, and me being captain,
I really want my team to do well.
I want them to trust me, so if we don't win, I'll be gutted,
and feel like it's my fault.
Then again, I'd also look into the future and say never mind,
we can still catch up, cos this is only the second challenge.
Only one team has one today's Island Challenge.
The Island will reveal which team that is at the Island Fire -
the only place where the Island communicates directly with
the boys and the girls.
Welcome to the Island Fire.
This is where all will be revealed about your mission,
and most importantly where the Island communicates with you.
-Girls, how was your second day?
-What was so good about it?
-It was fun.
-Drawing with the boys!
Drawing with the boys? We'll find out a bit more about that later!
-Guys, how did you find your time?
-It was a bit patchy in some places.
What do you mean, "patchy"?
There were a few nervous bits, especially with me
and James trying to shoot the cannon, like, "shoot!
"Shoot!" But drawing made up for those.
Well, I'm guessing you're itching to find out who's won
the Island Challenge, as well as the island treasure,
the second one, which is the cactus.
Today, you took part in the challenge Under Fire.
Only the island knows who the winner is.
As you guys know, both teams collected five balls each.
But I can reveal that one team collected the fifth ball
in their bucket quicker than the other.
The team...that beat the Island in Under Fire was...
-Well done, guys.
-Wow. Sorry, girls.
A look of shock there.
Guys, well done, congratulations again!
You are the Island Challenge winners.
One more thing I need you to do - you know the drill.
Only one of you can win this cactus, which represents survival
under extreme conditions.
Every night at the Island Fire,
only one adventurer from the winning team can be awarded the treasure.
The island is keeping the reason why a closely guarded secret.
Who would you like to nominate?
OK. Put your hand up...
-He was the best. Put your hands in for Jordan.
Jordan, put your hand in for the sake of it!
Can I put my hand in too?
-Only team members!
Well, I kind of overheard, but do tell me,
who have you nominated as your most valued adventurer?
-Jordan. Can you tell me why?
Cos he was our captain today, and he captained us well.
He also did the main part of the challenge.
He's the one that was catching all the balls
and making sure everything was done right.
-Jordan, lots of praise, how does that feel?
Good. I hope you've got your muscles ready,
cos I'm about to give you the second Island Treasure,
the Cactus, for being the most valued adventurer.
Commiserations, girls, but I think we should give another
round of applause to the boys and their cactus.
Well, what an exciting day for both our teams.
The boys are well in the lead, with two Island Treasures.
But don't forget, there are loads more out there.
Who's going to win the next one - the boys or the girls?
Don't forget, you can catch all the action online.
That's right, make sure you tune in for the next edition
-of Escape From Scorpion Island.
Next time, the girls know they must fight back.
Yes, Lizzie, you're doing amazing!
This time, boys, we're going to win, so watch out.
But the boys don't think the girls stand a chance.
I think we've done enough to win,
because we're overall the better team and the better sex.
But a dramatic turn of events reminds adventurers
who's really in charge.
