Tribal Council. There is zero suspense what is going to happen. It's like the editors didn't even try. Probst asks Jonas what he thinks about the new tribe. Jonas says that the deck isn't exactly stacked in their favor. Monica, on the other hand, admits that it was tough to leave the close women's tribe, but she likes their new beach better, because they have lots of food and she thinks they played like a team in the challenge. Probst asks Colton if he likes Monica's positive attitude. Colton says he does, because if she thinks she can "turn this sinking ship around," that's great. Probst asks Alicia if she thinks Monica is what the tribe needs. Alicia speaks carefully and says that Monica is a great mom and athletic, but she could also be seen as a threat. RED FLAG, MONICA! Your alliance mate shouldn't be pointing out that you're a threat, no matter how obvious it is. Monica says that she may be putting the team ahead of her own survival in the game. Leif adds that Monica is one of the hardest working women he's ever seen, which pleases Monica to hear.
Probst wants to know what Tarzan thinks. Why? No one needs to know what Tarzan thinks. Tarzan spouts some nonsense about how he "dropped his assertiveness to a different lodestar." Those are all words that exist in English but they don't really make sense in that order. Probst tries to figure out what Tarzan is on about and figures out that a lodestar is a leader. But Tarzan won't reveal who it is, "I shan't say, because the game is afoot." Jonas and Leif say that it's funny and interesting having Tarzan around camp and Leif uses the non-word "explanate," which Tarzan explains is a "neologism." What is even going on here? Did they get a thesaurus in one of the reward challenges? They must have not done anything interesting around camp this week because this is all a waste of time. Probst asks Tarzan if he's annoying his tribe and Tarzan says he hasn't revealed much about his background because "the game is afoot." Then tribe members start just yelling out random facts they know about Tarzan which kind of shows that he hasn't been as reticent as he claims. Monica says that Tarzan has "aphasia" and Tarzan says he actually has "nominal aphasia," meaning he can't remember people's names. That's not what it is at all. Maybe he has face blindness. There was a segment on 60 Minutes about it last night. Probst makes him name all of his tribe members, and he does so successfully, though he struggles with Monica and Jonas.
