For the first time on Scorpion Island, it's boys versus girls.
Jordan, remember - put this in, don't throw it!
The boys have seized victory in two Island Challenges,
winning two island treasures.
..and the cactus.
Now it's time for the girls to fight back.
Yes, Lizzie, you're doing amazing!
This time, boys, we are going to win, so watch out.
But the boys don't think the girls stand a chance.
I definitely think we have done enough to win
because we were overall the better team and overall the better sex.
But a dramatic turn of events reminds adventurers who's really in charge.
Welcome to Scorpion Island - the island with a sting in its tail.
Two teams of adventurers on the island - it's girls versus boys.
They are on a mission to escape
and they won't let anything get in the way.
Absolutely. They need to be the best.
Only one team will escape on the final day.
Scorpion Island relishes its splendid isolation
and uses its natural world as its impenetrable defence system.
It's virtually impassable 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 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 of the treasure.
But he failed in his final escape.
As an ultimate act of revenge,
the furious island threw the treasures deep into its jungles,
and mischievously captured the Fortune Hunter's spirit
and locked it away.
Now, ten new adventurers must follow the path he created.
Their mission - to escape the island.
They must battle it out in terrifying challenges.
The victors will win treasure.
The more they win, the greater the advantage
in the final race to escape.
The teams have gathered at the Island Fire.
The girls are about to find out which of them
must lead their fight back.
So teams, now it's time for you to discover who will be
your new team captains for your third day on the island.
Khadie, you will be the captain for the girls...
and Dilhan, you will be the captain for the boys.
Come on, boy. You better be good at these memory ones.
How do you feel about that, girls?
We feel pleased that Khadie is our captain.
-What kind of captain will you make?
-A good one, who listens and stuff.
You're going to listen. OK, that's a big one.
Dilhan, what are your plans as captain?
To keep the team winning and to keep them together
and to keep our spirits up as a family.
The main priority - beating those girls.
We've got to keep it up.
Girls, do you think this will be the time to beat the boys?
Yes, this will be the time.
We're letting them have a fair chance. We'll win everything else.
You're lulling them into a false sense of security!
You said that last night and we won today, so...
Just so you know, it's not going to happen again.
Johny, I think we should just leave them to it.
Yeah, go on see you later, guys, argue amongst yourselves.
So, the new captains are Khadie for the girls and Dilhan for the boys.
The sun rises on another Scorpion Island day
and it's up to Khadie to change the girls' fortune.
We haven't won anything. If we don't win,
it's like they are better than us
and I don't want them to feel that. We have to win today
so that we can prove that we are the better team.
The team agreed to stress that we really have to win
and we need to try as hard as we can today to win the challenge.
Watch out, boys, we are coming to get you.
The captains will now have to lead their teams against the island,
but they are not alone.
The Fortune Hunter once made his way through the unrelenting jungle
and now he is helping the adventurers on their journey.
He knows that only the bravest and brightest can escape
this treacherous island and free his spirit
and has left a system of clues
in a symbol ring to help them on their way.
But once again, the island is furious
that the Fortune Hunter is still attempting to help the adventurers
and has smashed the ring into pieces.
Your time starts now. Take it away.
The adventurers must now start their journey
from the very beginning AGAIN.
If they are to gain any ground on the island,
the teams must attempt to piece the chards of the symbol ring together.
But with each day that passes,
they will have a more complicated puzzle to solve.
Try to find the edge of it. Try to find the round edges.
If they're getting away, put them on the floor.
You guys need a plan of action.
There are seven pieces but only four fit together.
At one point we only had three pieces and it looked like four,
and we said, "We're done", but we didn't, so we were like,
"No, that bit goes here."
The team that completes the ring the quickest
will get to play for an advantage from the Fortune Hunter.
Oh, where does this go?
When you are just watching them do it, and you know what to do,
you just get frustrated, like you want to jump in there
and put the piece into its place.
That piece doesn't fit.
-That's cost time.
-It doesn't matter, we can still do it.
Yes! Yes! And the other piece... The other piece!
Put the other piece...
-Are you happy with that?
And you know what, girls? You have done it.
That is seriously impressive.
This could be the start of a turnaround for the girls.
-How does that feel?
Communication was the key reason to why we won the challenge
because we were talking so much. "Are you OK with this?"
If someone said "No, I don't want to do that," we'd try and change it
but it was really good. We did well communicating.
Unfortunately we lost. Probably because I did it last time
and last time I did it, there were different pieces,
so it must have been a different ring.
Each day, the Fortune Hunter can give one team an advantage,
so now the girls must prove themselves worthy
in a special trial, where they'll be tested
on their knowledge of the symbols.
Eleanor and Khadie will have 20 seconds to memorise the ring.
They will then be presented with six symbols,
but only two of them belong to the ring.
If they can correctly identify the two and place them back,
they will gain an advantage in the Island Challenge.
Girls, I'm glad you have come prepared.
The island is clearly not happy. Look at the rain.
Your 20 seconds start...now.
Test your memory too. You've got 15 seconds left.
Five, four, three, two, one...
and your time is up.
Look away now.
The two symbols are about to vanish from the ring.
Eleanor and Khadie must now identify the two symbols
that were on the ring and return them to their rightful place.
You now have two minutes.
Away you go.
I know this one.
They seem pretty confident.
THEY TALK OVER EACH OTHER
It was really hard and annoying today because the island decided to
pour a load of rain all over us
so it was really hard.
So this one goes here?
We were, like, concentrating on the rain.
We said, "Gosh, it's bucketing it down, what will we do?"
But we used lots of communication so I think that helped.
-This goes there?
The girls are super-confident and have placed the monkey
and the sun on the symbol ring,
but have they chosen the right symbols
and positioned them correctly?
Well, girls, I can tell you...
..that you are correct!
For the first time, the girls have earned the right to choose
whether they play the Island Challenge first or second.
Boys, how are you feeling? It's the first time you've lost anything.
Oh, well. We're all right.
They're a little bit gutted. Girls, you get to choose who goes first
and who goes second in your next Island Challenge.
'I feel really good about winning the Memory Trial'
because I think we needed a boost because we've been losing a lot.
-You want to go second?
-OK, are you happy?
Give a round of applause to the girls, guys. Well done.
I feel very excited and I feel very happy that the girls won
the Memory Trial. I think I've been a good captain so far.
It's boosted up our confidence
and we're really ready to do the next challenge
and I'm really looking forward to it.
To be part of the first challenge that the boys have lost
does make me feel a bit sorry for the other boys but it has also
made us want to come back stronger and beat them girls even more.
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 a devious twist that Scorpion Island has planned.
What is the significance of the sun and the monkey?
The adventurers will find out soon.
And now the Fortune Hunter is going to communicate with the adventurers
in a much more obvious way.
Team captains Khadie and Dilhan are on the hunt
for the Fortune Hunter's rusty casket.
They wonder what message he'll leave for them this time.
-There it is, look, look. There, there.
-Oh, wow, you found it!
It's another message from the Fortune Hunter,
mysteriously attached to one of his relics, an old typewriter.
"Adventurers, I want you to battle against the island
"and succeed where I failed.
"Win the Island Treasure for me. Girls, you must do better.
"On my third day I faced a moving target,
"a treacherous game at Skeleton Falls, another game of heights."
"Which of you has the best hand-eye coordination?
"Don't let me down."
Maybe this one will be scarier, maybe higher.
I'm really excited. It says we will be somewhere
really high and that we're going to be over a waterfall,
so I'm really excited about the challenge,
I hope we can win today and we're going to try our best.
You might have known how we were doing the challenges before.
Like, cos yesterday's challenge, we want to do better than that.
We want to actually win, to succeed, where he failed.
It's very important that we win today, because the boys have won
twice in a row. We have to get a comeback
and set a standard for the girls.
If we don't win today it could get the whole team spirit down
and then we'll start losing, so we'll really, really try hard today.
Khadie and Dilhan have had some help from the Fortune Hunter,
but now the teams must face the island alone.
Following the path the Fortune Hunter created all those years ago,
both teams will battle against the island.
If they win, they'll be rewarded with an island treasure.
The more treasures they are rewarded, the greater the advantage
they'll gain in the final race to release the Fortune Hunter's spirit,
This is the third Island Treasure to be won.
The Pit Viper represents the dangers
our adventurers face on Scorpion Island.
The boys have two Island Treasures.
The girls have none and both teams now want the Pit Viper.
The more treasure they own, the greater the advantage
they'll have in the Final Escape.
First up, it's the boys.
and today's captain, Dilhan.
This is Moving Target.
Deep within the Scorpion Island jungle,
the mighty Skeleton Falls crashes down.
At the start of the game and every two minutes after that,
coloured balls will cascade over the Falls
and three members of each team will have to collect these balls
and stuff them into a bag, which can be pulled up
by one of two team-mates
who are suspended on swings high up in front of the Falls.
The adventurer with the bag then has to throw the balls
into the other's giant, basketball-style net. They can only
make the catches with their net
rather than their hands, and the team with the most balls at the end
of their ten-minute turn wins.
But this is Scorpion Island. It was never going to be as easy as that,
because every time the balls drop over the Falls,
the net-holding adventurer's swing will be raised up a metre.
They will be moving targets, and that means
the shots are only going to get harder and harder.
So this challenge demands great aim, great focus and,
more than anything, great teamwork.
The question is, will it be the boys or the girls who come out on top
and bag the silver Pit Viper, the latest Island Treasure?
So, boys, welcome to Moving Target. This is the game
that requires a good aim and a lot of stamina.
-Now you know what's expected, are you feeling good?
How is this relationship between you guys working out?
It really depends, if the boys win, we're nice to them
-and if the girls win we don't like them.
OK, I'll memorise that. How do you think the girls are going to do?
Because none of them can swim, they all hate heights,
it's the perfect cocktail for sadness, misery,
and I hope they fail.
OK, so what can the boys expect from this?
Hope, glory and victory.
Hope, glory, victory and another treasure.
While you've mentioned it,
let's talk about that, you've won two Island Treasures.
-Do you think you can win this today?
You're saying hopefully, you're saying definitely, which one is it?
I'll let you guys have a team talk, get your tactics together.
I think we should... The bottom ones should work together
-and the top ones should work together.
Lots of communication.
-We need hand-eye coordination.
You've got yourselves sorted now?
-Know what you're doing?
-You going to show them how it's done?
-There's a lot of talking. I want to see some action.
Go on. Get up there.
Luckily, the girls didn't hear what Zach was saying,
so are waiting for the challenge.
They've chosen to take it on second,
which means, for the first time, they can watch the boys
and learn from their successes and slip-ups.
Right, now, the boys are eager to get started.
James and Peter are up on the swings,
ready to make the catches and the throws respectively,
while Jordan, Dilhan and Zach are in the water, set to gather the balls.
So, the boys are in position and are ready.
Now, can they match Zach's bold words
with an equally-huge performance?
-Are you ready?
They're ready. Three, two, one, go!
And here comes the cascade of balls straight down the waterfall already.
They're leaping into action
-to collect the balls and stuff them into Peter's bag.
-Come on, guys!
These are treacherous conditions - freezing water,
ultra-strong current and so little time before the next drop,
when James will be raised up even higher.
Yay! First ball in. Excellent work.
But they could do with getting a lot more balls into the net
while James and Peter are level with each other, four metres apart.
With the throws at their easiest, this is the time
for the boys to try to score some serious points.
Come on, Peter! Come on, Peter!
Great encouragement from James, and it seems like it's really helping,
because Peter's getting loads in now.
Don't hang about. More!
Come on, guys! Come on!
The current washes the balls to the edge of the pool,
meaning the longer they take to gather them,
the more work they've got to do to get them to Peter.
You're going to collect the balls, while I hold the bag down.
-You're taller and can get the balls.
-Jeremy will do what Zach's doing
-and you'll do what Dilhan's doing.
-Look how much they're missing!
It sounds like the girls are beginning to develop their tactics
from seeing the boys in action.
The adventurers are getting stuck in, collecting balls.
Peter's keeping the shots coming, but are they doing enough?
Give me more, give me more!
Come on, Peter!
My arms are killing me!
They're going so fast, they're missing so many.
Use two and throw them at me, cos at least you'll get one in.
There's just seconds left before the next stage begins.
Here we go, James's swing has been raised up a metre
while the waterfall made its second colourful delivery.
And a cascade of red balls has now come down.
Zach and Jordan are racing after the new balls
but Captain Dilhan is steadily stuffing the sack
with the yellow ones! And yes, he's passed it up to Peter.
Now what can he do with them?
Off the edge of the net again!
Yes! Oh, that's the third to bounce off!
Red ball! Red ball!
Bad news, but you've got to think that,
if Peter took a bit more time,
he might make more of his shots count.
This is the second-lowest and they've missed all but one.
You've got to get them all in the beginning.
You have to get as many as you want, as many as you can.
Come on, guys!
Dilhan might be today's captain,
but it's James who's really trying to keep the boys' spirits up.
All they're doing is "Come on, come on." That's not really helping.
-You have to say "Higher, lower..."
All they're doing is saying, "Come on, come on, you can do it."
Come on, Peter. You can do it!
Still, it looks like the encouragement is helping.
-This is good stuff.
-Peter is a demon, throwing those balls.
But he's run out of them now and so, until Zach and Dilhan finish
reloading the bag, there's nothing more he can do.
But will this interruption have broken his run of great shooting?
Go, go, go, Peter!
Well, we're about to find out.
Come on, Peter!
Oh, no! Another one off the edge. Too high.
Give me more.
This is really worrying, Peter missed every single shot that time
and he's still saying his arm is hurting,
but the boys in the pool are moving quickly,
that's another load going up.
We should use a code. Tug the bag when you want to pull it up,
so I won't be constantly looking at you.
That's the third ball-drop
and it means James's swing has gone up another metre,
so Peter's going to have even harder throws to make with his achy arm.
He needs to raise his game.
He's spending longer aiming this one.
No, it's far too short, and even James looks disappointed about that.
Zach's collecting more balls and that's another bagful up to Peter.
Can he make this load count?
It's brilliant to watch them because we can see what they're doing wrong.
They're doing a lot wrong!
But not everything's going wrong for the boys.
That was two terrific shots from Peter!
Could this be where this challenge really starts to go their way?
And there's another one in!
Halfway through the boys' time
and Peter really seems to have got his eye in.
But James's net will only be at this height until the next ball-drop,
so the pressure's on to keep sinking ball after ball until then.
Look at the determination on Peter's face!
But it takes two to tango and, as the heights increase,
so does the importance of James's net positioning.
Yes, there's one in!
Why don't you turn the net completely towards me?
I'll have to make sure I'm turned to you.
As soon as you get your last one, put the bag down.
Zach is getting stuck in, gathering balls from the edge of the pool.
Most of the balls are going to the outside, so someone
should permanently be there.
It sounds as if the girls are plotting
tactical roles for their turn.
But this doesn't look like joined-up play from the boys.
Come on, Peter!
Come on, Peter.
Not a single one in there,
and with the next stage only moments away,
it's only going to get trickier again.
You can do this!
Now here's the next downfall and that's James up another metre
meaning he's around two storeys higher than the water. Terrifying!
Well, Zach's swimming across to the fresh batch of balls.
Can he grab them before they reach the edge of the pool?
Give me tennis balls!
Peter's spotted there are tennis balls in the mix now.
But look at this! That's a huge number of balls
Jordan's herding across.
Oh, and Zach's joining in! Good teamwork,
but how many can the boys get into James's net?
Come on, guys!
I think the boys aren't doing very well at all.
They started quite fast but now, because it's larger,
they're not doing so well.
Harsh words from the girls. The boys have
still got just under three minutes left.
So there's definitely time to... Oh, what?!
This was sneaky play by James.
The shot was going wide
but he casually knocked it into the net with his hand.
Unluckily for him, it did not go unnoticed,
and so that ball will come off the boys' final score.
Nothing gets past the all-seeing island.
Well, James's ploy might have been a waste of time
but this is an interesting new tactic.
Rather than taking the balls to the bag,
they're taking the bag to the balls.
It's novel, but will it be effective?
Oh, they're into the last stage of the game. That's the final ball-drop
and James has been raised another metre.
He's as far above Peter as Peter is above the water.
So the throws are going to be ultra-hard.
But the latest batch of balls
did include lots of tennis balls and, as they're heavier,
you can throw them much further than the lighter plastic balls.
Will the boys realise this and get some much-needed long-range scores
-before their time runs out?
-Come on, Peter!
They're too hard to throw, give me tennis balls!
Way to hard to throw!
Get tennis balls!
Yep, they're on it.
Dilhan and Jordan are stuffing the bag full of tennis balls.
Will Peter be able to use them to achieve a score
that the girls will find impossible to beat?
Come on, guys!
One last ball and the bag's going up.
Oh, he's got the distance, but his aim is off.
30 seconds left, boys!
And that puts maximum pressure on Peter...
Oh! That bounced off James's net. Not so close that time.
And you can sense the building panic here.
Down in the pool, they're scrabbling around for more tennis balls.
Peter's shots are going everywhere, everywhere except James's net.
He's lowered the bag again, the girls look nervous,
but can the boys possibly manage to reload and score any more
-in the dying seconds of their turn?
-Ten, nine, eight, seven, six,
three, two, one -
game over, that's it, boys!
Ah, Peter got the bag back up just too late to be able
to cram in any final shots.
A frustrating end to a high-octane turn from the boys,
but how was it for them?
That waterfall was like a shower.
I'm back in there cos that was just amazing.
When we were putting the balls in the bag,
trying to put the balls in the bag,
it was hard cos the balls have a mind of their own
and float off anywhere.
It was just all-round amazing. Nobody did a bad thing.
Nobody did anything wrong, it was perfect.
We tried our best, we gave it 110%, just to win.
I think James and Peter did a really good job,
with throwing the balls and catching them in the net.
Um, there were quite a lot of balls.
I definitely think we've done enough to win
because we were overall the better team
and we're overall the better sex.
A big claim there, Zach. But in fact, after a profitable start,
the boys' hit-rate really slowed down.
Zach, Jordan and Dilhan took a long time
to get organised as ball collectors
and once James's swing got raised,
Peter really struggled to get his aim together again.
He had a couple of successful flurries, but as the game progressed
and the shots became even trickier, the scoring really thinned back out.
At the end of their turn, there were 37 balls in their net.
However, as James had batted one of these in with his hand,
it did not count, so the boys' final score is 36.
Will it be enough to win the latest Island Treasure,
the silver Pit Viper?
Or will the girls prove Zach wrong...
-How do you think the girls are going to do?
Yeah, cos none of them can swim, they all hate heights...
It's the perfect cocktail for sadness, misery and failure.
..and do even better?
So, lads, you're fresh from the water. How was that?
-Peter, how's your arm?
When I was up there, in the beginning,
in the bonus round, where it was so easy to throw
into the basket, as we got higher,
oh, my arm was killing me.
The tennis balls were the easiest to throw
-while the plastic balls were too light.
-Hard to get leverage.
They floated away.
How were your catching skills? At the beginning, it seemed easy.
Towards the end, your arms must have been tired.
It was like holding a supermarket trolley.
turning and then seeing when the ball's coming
and moving it back and forward.
Looking at it, as a bystander, it looks easier than it is.
Is that the case?
When you get tired, it drains you and your energy is taken out.
Going up higher makes it harder.
-Do you think the girls will beat you?
-No. They can't throw.
-Do you think the treasure is yours?
-Shall we see?
We'll find out if that's the case.
Still to come, the teams make their mark
on the Fortune Hunter's abandoned base camps.
This isn't going to be no Jackson Pollock or Van Gogh.
It's going to look kind of sloppy.
And are the boys taking their competitiveness too far?
I think the girls are going to not do very well because...
You never know, man.
Yeah, I'm not sure. I hope they don't do well.
But the girls have more spirit than the boys think.
This time, boys, we're going to win, so watch out.
And a devastating twist from the island
will remind both teams who's really in charge.
Before the girls take on the island challenge, the teams have found
some paint at the Fortune Hunter's abandoned camps.
Hi, guys. Well, you know how at first our place was a bit grubby?
We can funk it up a little bit.
I've got some green paint. What do you want to paint?
-But just the barrels of the table.
Hey, guys, look what I've got.
I'm going to put B for boys, and then you can all
write your name out in turn.
And then I'm going to put "no girls".
This "boys" isn't going to be no Jackson Pollock or Van Gogh.
It's going to look kind of sloppy.
I'm painting the banisters.
We want to funk it up.
This is green and I'll leave a section and paint it green again.
It's going to feel more like home.
Like we've contributed to our hideout.
It will be really good once we've painted it.
Everybody steals this hammock and this rightfully belongs to me.
So I'm going to write "Zach's" and point an arrow to the hammock.
So if anyone tries to sit on it, they've got me to deal with.
You know how everyone sits on this hammock,
this is rightfully my hammock.
-If anybody sits in it, they've got me to deal with.
I think that is completely unfair, Zach.
That's not fair.
-You have to tell him to ease off.
-We can't take it as a joke any more.
Today, it was causing so many problems in the team and I think
if it carries on any more...
-It's going to have to stop.
-It's going to have to stop.
-While the boys are focusing on themselves
the girls are focusing on the Island Challenge.
Because we won the memory trial,
it's very important that we have good communication
in the challenge because if we don't, then we'll probably lose
because we won't know what we're doing and everyone will be doing
what they think's right and we won't work as a team.
We are going to win this next challenge.
I think we've all got a big boost
because we won the memory trial.
I think we'll do well, because in the other challenges
we hadn't won, so we were feeling like a balloon going...
Now we're like "bing" and we're back up again.
This time, boys, we're going to win, so watch out.
So now it's the girls.
and today's captain, Khadie.
Because the girls won the memory trial they had the choice of
whether to take on the Island Challenge, Moving Target,
first or second, and they opted to make the boys go first this time.
-So you want to go second?
-OK, you happy?
They watched while the boys did
what they'll have to do in their turn -
collecting the balls which cascade over Skeleton Falls
at the start of the game and every two minutes after that.
-It's brilliant cos we can see what they're doing wrong.
-A lot of things!
Once they'd gathered the balls they had to pack them into a bag
for Peter to shoot into James's net.
You have to get as many as you can into the basket.
Every time more balls came over the falls, James's swing was raised up
a metre, making Peter's throws even tougher.
Look how much harder it is to throw from there.
As the boys' turn went on, the girls began to develop clever tactics.
Most are going to the outside. Someone should be on the outside.
Don't do one at a time. Throw one, throw another.
They didn't seem impressed by the boys.
Look how much they're missing.
All they're doing is going, "Come on!" That's not helping.
You have to say, "Higher, lower."
They seemed so certain that they would be able to make the most of
their turn, they even began to worry about an enviable problem!
What happens if you've got a full basket and can't do any more?
Well, then you try squashing it up.
The boys ended up with 37 balls in their net
but because James knocked one of these in with his hand,
their final score was 36.
So can the girls beat this and nab their first all-important treasure,
the silver pit viper? Time to find out.
Let's talk tactics because, from what I understand,
you've pulled apart what the boys did
and saw the good bits and bad bits.
What are you going to learn from them?
James held the basket at a good angle.
-He wasn't like this cos then it would have to go...
-Up and over.
He was like this so it just has to go like that.
Who's on basket duty?
You'll be concentrating on that.
What did you learn from Peter? Who's going to be in Peter's position?
-I'm guessing you've got a good throw.
What did you learn from Peter?
He was sitting halfway across the chair, so he could turn around,
so when the chair was swinging he could move back into position
and throw the ball.
From what I could see, a lot of the pressure was on Peter,
because he's got to make the throw.
-Do you feel there's a lot of pressure on you?
-Um, yeah, sort of.
What about ball collecting? Any tactics?
Spreading your arms out and pushing the balls in.
You clearly have a good idea of what you're about to do.
All I can say is, I wish you the best of luck.
In the meantime, have a team talk.
We've got to concentrate.
Lizzie, as soon as you feel two tugs, pull it up.
When you've got three or four, put them in your lap and send it back.
-Excellent. One more question, do you think you can win?
-Do you think you can beat the boys?
-Is this the start of your winning streak?
Let's stop talking. Let's do it.
It's almost time for the girls' turn.
The boys are getting ready to watch. But something Zach said earlier...
I think we've done enough to win, because we were overall
the better team and we are overall the better sex.
..is causing ripples.
Well, I think Zach's been not nice to the girls.
-"The boys are the better sex"?
-That's stating a fact.
They might be laughing now, but will they be laughing
quite so hard once they've seen what the girls can do?
They're in position for the game,
Eleanor and Lizzie are up on the swings,
ready to make the catches and throws,
while Jeremy, Natty and Khadie are in the water,
set to gather the balls.
-Are you ready, ladies?
Right, they're ready. Three, two, one, go!
And they're heading over to where the balls are about to drop.
And here comes the cascade of red balls straight down the waterfall.
This is freezing water - and strong currents, too.
The longer they spend collecting the balls the tougher it's going to get.
-I think the girls are not going to do very well.
-You never know, man.
I'm not sure. I hope they don't do well.
While Eleanor does her best to motivate them,
Natty and captain Khadie are doing so well stuffing balls into the bag.
Lizzie knows this is the crucial time to get the maximum points.
So now can she make her first shot count?
Oh, it's a miss! But there's the first one in. And another.
Great reactions from Eleanor there, and this is terrific work
from Lizzie. She is getting ball after ball in here.
Yes, Lizzie, you're doing amazing.
Lizzie's dropped the bag back down and so it's up to the girls
in the pool to refill it as quickly as possible.
This is cunning stuff from Jeremy.
Oh, they're using our herding technique.
It took Jordan till almost the end of the boys' turn to come up with
this tactic of using his arms to herd the balls through the water,
but because the girls were watching him, it means they can use it
straightaway. It just show what an advantage going second really is.
While she waits for the bag to get refilled, Lizzie's switching
positions on the swing. Will this help her aim?
There's the second load of balls going up.
Go! Oh, no! Not so high! Brilliant.
-Well done, Lizzie!
Yes, Eleanor, this is absolutely brilliant.
Even the ball Lizzie threw with her left hand went in.
She's making this look very easy, our Lizzie.
You're the best. Come on, guys. This is brilliant. More balls!
Lizzie's getting through the balls at a great pace,
which means Natty, Khadie and Jeremy have to keep gathering
just as quickly to make best use of seconds before the next drop.
Already that basket's looking pretty full.
Lizzie is a fantastic shot.
Oh, yes, Eleanor's been raised up a metre and another massive delivery
of balls has come crashing down.
Up, up, up!
Passing up another bag load.
It's quick work, but should they have packed more balls in?
Oh, no! Sorry, Lizzie.
Excellent team work from Eleanor and Lizzie.
They're communicating well and getting so many balls.
-They have more than us already.
-Yeah, I think so, too.
She's throwing the bag down while she carries on.
It could be a real time-saving tactic.
And this technique, the way she has positioned herself,
is working brilliantly. Well done, Lizzie.
Yes, the bag is much fuller this time,
which means Lizzie's got even more chances to score.
I'm turning round. The swing's unstable.
Lizzie, you are brilliant. My arms are really sore.
Well, Eleanor, they're going to get even more sore.
Lizzie is really keeping the pace up with her shots here.
The better she does, the more of an endurance challenge it is for you.
And it's not easy for Natty, either,
having to wade in the icy water to stuff the bag, while Jeremy
and Khadie scour the edges of the pool for more balls.
Guys, I think we're beating them.
Eleanor sounds confident. The boys are looking nervous.
It's so heavy. Oh, no! Lizzie, come on!
So Eleanor's been raised another metre.
And the next batch of balls has just cascaded down Skeleton Falls.
Well, Natty and Khadie are wasting no time in re-stuffing the bag.
They know the throws are getting longer.
Lizzie will need all the chances she can get. And here she goes.
This is so hard now, but Lizzie's throws are going the distance.
It's impressive work. And if she can just maintain her aim,
she could single-handedly shoot the girls to a massive win.
Good! Keep up the brilliant work.
Khadie might be captain today,
but it's Eleanor who's doing all the talking and all the cheering on.
Guys! Help, Jeremy!
Still, as Khadie is a real fan of clear communication,
she must be pleased that her team are not resorting to silence.
-Lizzie, I'm slipping.
-Oh, no! It would be disastrous
if Eleanor let that net slip.
No, she seems OK for now.
Natty, go, go, go!
Well done, guys. This is amazing teamwork.
Eleanor's right - this is amazing teamwork.
Each of the girls is playing her part to perfection.
I think we've got this one in the bag.
-From the look on the boys' faces, it seems they might think
Eleanor is right. But it's the balls in the net
at the end that count.
And with a net as heavy and hard to hold onto as this,
even one big spillage could spell disaster.
So that's the fourth ball drop.
There she goes. Eleanor's just shot up into the air.
Lizzie, come on!
It will be amazing if we get this.
Well, there's one in, and another.
That's three in a row, four in a row now.
Brilliant shots from Lizzie.
-We had that much at the end.
-Yeah, I know.
And the ball-herding they learnt from Jordan
still seems to be working well for them.
-Run, run, run!
The bag was refilled in no time there.
Lizzie, you're doing absolutely brilliant.
High and long. Yes!
And that's two more in.
By this stage in the boys' turn, Peter was struggling
to throw the balls far enough, let alone get them in.
But Lizzie is powering on. Can she keep it up?
Go, go, go!
Lizzie, this is brilliant work. No, on target.
Lizzie is still on target.
She's making this game look far too easy
and, believe me, it is not.
Well, done. Yes! I can't go like that any more, it's too full.
Well, that's a rare downside to doing so well.
And here comes the final batch.
Eleanor is now being raised to eight metres above the water.
-I can't get overarm.
You've got to, Lizzie, this is where it really counts!
Well, done, Jeremy. You're doing brilliant with this game.
The girls must be getting very tired now,
but they are not showing it.
No, Lizzie, come on!
Two misses in a row. Have the throws become impossible now
or can Lizzie get some incredible extra scores
before the time runs out?
One minute left to go.
Oh, just wide, this is frantic stuff but they are not giving up just yet.
-Lizzie, 20 seconds.
-High, really high!
Really high Lizzie, really high, just get those balls!
Ten seconds left to go, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four,
three, two, one!
Game over. Well done, girls. Your time is up.
I never thought it would be this fun. It was really fun.
I think we did very well and we worked really well as a team.
We were listening to each other and making sure we swapped each job.
I would be collecting, I would be putting them
into a basket and we worked really well together.
Yes, Khadie, you did work well together
and what an action-packed challenge it was.
Both teams got off to strong starts,
loading while the swings were level.
But as time went on, the catches got higher and the throws got
longer and the difference between the teams was clear.
It was all about the ball throwers. For the boys, Peter struggled to
hurl the balls far enough, let alone get them on target.
While for the girls, Lizzie proved a shot-making machine.
Still managing to pop runs of balls into Eleanor's net
extremely late in the game.
There were 37 balls in the boys' net at the end of their turn,
but James knocked one of these in with his hand, so they scored 36.
However, in the net at the end of the girls' turn,
there were an extraordinary 78 balls.
And so, having achieved more than twice the score of their rivals,
despite Zach's low expectations, it's the girls who
are victorious and will be awarded
the latest island treasure - the silver pit viper.
It will be their first one
and because the more they win, the greater the advantage they will have
in the final race to escape,
they are going to be really thrilled with it.
Well done! You said you'd work as a team. Did you enjoy yourselves?
Got to come to Lizzie. Where did that throwing action come from?
Umm, when I was younger I used to play softball and baseball.
So you're the secret weapon here? Did the rest of you girls know that?
-Ah, right OK. Do you think you have beaten the boys?
-I know you set out to beat the boys. Do you think you have?
The boys had a lot to say before your go. Let's bring them in.
Lads, you saw what the girls did. What do you think?
I have to say one thing. I apologise for everything.
I just said that girls can't catch, throw and swim.
You can do all three and you did really well, so I am sorry.
As you know, I can't give you the results of today's game.
However, all will be revealed tonight at the Island Fire.
The sun sets after a relentless day.
The adventurers sit beside one of the Fortune Hunter's relics
and Lizzie reflects on the Island Challenge.
I didn't feel a lot of pressure
because I felt really confident and I felt confident because I knew
that I have good throwing skills.
I think we have won that,
-haven't we? I think we have.
I think we have, but every time we underestimate the boys,
they come back, surprisingly.
The boys are impressed by the girls' achievement.
-Lizzie was just amazing. She got every single ball in.
Almost every single ball in.
But they are worried that their rivalry today went too far.
Well, before the game, with Myleene, Zach was saying
we were going to win and how he said the girls
couldn't throw, they couldn't swim and that's how we are going to win.
How do you think the girls are going to do?
Rubbish, because none of them can swim, they all hate heights.
It's the perfect cocktail for sadness, misery and failure.
He thought. "Oh, well we have won twice now, so we will win again
"and I am going to say all these things."
He kept saying things like, "We are the best sex" and all sorts
of things like that, which I thought was really harsh of him to say.
Today, I am not very happy with myself,
because I really brought out my ugly side.
As you can probably see, I was saying, "Oh, the girls can't catch,
"the girls can't throw and the girls can't swim.
It was all in good humour, but I'm really unhappy
and I really do apologise for what I said.
I didn't mean any of it and the girls did accept my apology.
I apologise for everything. I said that girls can't catch,
throw and swim.
You can do all three of those. You did really well, so I'm sorry.
You have got to think, "If that was me, how would I feel?"
And I would feel pretty bad.
But Peter can understand
why there has been over-confidence in the boys' camp.
Like in the beginning, the first days, when we did the challenges,
I mean, when you look back at them,
the Chasm of Chaos we just won by one cog.
In Under Fire, we tied putting the balls into the bucket.
Today, I think luck was on their side and we were just washed out.
Again, I have to say, very, very sorry to the girls, because it
really wasn't appropriate. It all was in good humour,
but still I am very, very ashamed of my behaviour and I am very sorry.
A full moon rises in the night sky.
The adventurers are about to find out who has won today's
challenge at the Island Fire, the only place where the island
will communicate directly with the teams.
But tonight, Scorpion Island has a devious trick in store.
Hello, guys, how are you doing?
Welcome to the Island Fire.
This is where all will be revealed about your mission
and more importantly, where the island communicates with you.
-Girls, have you enjoyed your day today?
-Why did you enjoy it so much?
-Because we won something!
Where did you changed your game plan? You didn't start very well.
We were communicating a lot more today.
-Boys, how did you find your day today?
-It was the girls' lucky day.
-Oh, so it was all luck, was it?
-We started off with the wrong pieces.
Yeah, it was a bit unlucky on the two boys,
but we never know who's won it yet.
So I hope we have, but you never know.
I think it's time to put you out of your misery.
I can tell you are both itching to find out who's won today's
-Island Challenge. Am I right?
As well as the third island treasure. Here he is.
Today's Island Challenge was called Moving Target.
You both did very, very well.
However, as you know, there can only be one winner
and the island is the only one who knows who that winner is.
That's right, I can reveal that one team
got an incredible 42 balls more than the other.
That's right. The winner of today's Island Challenge is...
Who are you going to pick, that you think deserves the Island Treasure?
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.
Chat amongst yourselves.
-So, girls, tell me, who have you chosen?
I think I can already guess, but tell me why Lizzie?
Because she was throwing the balls and she was amazing,
because she was really accurate.
Well done Lizzie. So, step forward, congratulations,
you have been awarded Most Valuable Adventurer.
You win the Pit Viper. Now this represents
the danger you face every single day on Scorpion Island.
Well done, take it to your team. You have won it, well done.
Well done, Lizzie.
Now, things aren't over just yet.
Oh, now, that got your attention.
Guys, do you remember the memory trial you took part in this morning?
Also, do you remember which two symbols vanished?
Yes. It was the monkey and the sun.
The monkey and the sun? I want you to do me a favour.
Cast your minds back to your very first day on the island,
the time you arrived on the beach and opened your parchments.
-I've got the sun!
-I've got a monkey!
Who was allocated those corresponding symbols?
-That was me.
Jeremy and Zach.
Just like those symbols, you two will vanish from your teams.
Zach and Jeremy, please step forward.
Wow! What a huge shock for both of our teams.
I want to know, why have Jeremy and Zach vanished into thin air?
What has the island got planned?
Well, all will be revealed next time.
And don't forget you can catch all the action online but for now,
-it's goodbye from Scorpion Island.
Next time, what has happened to Zach and Jeremy?
I think they have been captured by the Fortune Hunter.
Or maybe it's that we don't get her back at all.
The boys look failure in the face.
Nobody's ever going to choose me to do the Memory Challenge again.
And the girls must fight for the Island Treasure
if they are to equalise with the boys.
We really want to beat the boys, don't we?
If we do win today - I hope we do,
and someone has to be picked to get the Island Treasure,
I hope we can pick two people cos Khadie and Nat were amazing.
