Jonathan rings a bell summoning all of the kids to the barn that's serving as their Town Hall. The kids all sit on benches, while the Council members take up color-coded (of course) seats behind a table at the head of the room. Mallory interviews that she hopes everyone will be nice to each other. "No yelling and/or cursing," she specifies. Once everyone's settled in, Jonathan -- trying to be an informal presence by standing to one side at the front of the room -- explains that the Town Hall meetings are for everyone to talk about what's on their minds. First, Jonathan asks for a show of hands to see who's happy with the job the Council is doing. A clear majority raises their hands. Jonathan asks the opposite question, and Sophia raises her hand in the front row. She stands up to complain about the dishes not getting done. At the Council's table, Taylor whispers something catty about Sophia to Mike, because Taylor is ten. Several of the kids on the Yellow team speak up in their own defense, and Taylor says they're doing their best. Mike gives an insightful interview about his reaction to Sophia's thoughts: "Shut! Up!" Sophia may have a point, but the kitchen isn't really her problem any more. Just let the Yellow team slack on the dishes and have nothing to serve the next meal on, and the whole camp will know whom to blame.
Michael stands up and makes another speech, suggesting the Council members get to know everyone better so they can lead more effectively. Despite a bit of sophomore slump, his speech gets applause, because everyone loves Michael. Laurel promises to try and do better, and gets even more applause.
Time to move on. Jonathan asks if anyone wants to go home. He turns to Taylor first, and Taylor announces that she's decided to stay. "This is my family; this is where I need to be for the rest of the thirty-six days," she says. Except this family won't be entering her in beauty pageants all the time. Everyone claps and cheers, and Greg in the back row even gives her a standing ovation. It's tough to make up my mind about that kid. Jonathan asks if anyone else wants to go home. After a short pause, Jimmy's hand shoots up. Jonathan asks him why, and Jimmy says he's homesick and too young for this. "I think he's more mature than a lot of other kids," someone says. There's a murmur from the kids who are more mature than Jimmy. Needless to say, it's a soft murmur. Jonathan asks Jimmy if he's sure. Other kids encourage him to stay, but Jimmy's made up his mind. He interviews, "I thought it would be like a big fun adventure and I would last the whole time, but I miss my family a lot." Up front, Jonathan tells Jimmy that he's brave, and gets everyone to say how much they'll miss Jimmy. Jimmy leaves the barn, with everyone calling goodbye to him on his way out. I hope he actually does get to go home now instead of having to be sequestered somewhere like on other reality shows. On the plus side, now we only have thirty-nine kids to keep track of. How hard could that be?
