Reunited and It Feel So...Well, Okay
Bryant asks whether anyone in the group didn't have or try for an alliance. Clarence raises his hand and looks really proud of himself for not having been smart enough to get into alliance, but he's kind of ducking, too. Jessie also has her hand raised, and Bryant calls on her because she's pretty. Not that Clarence isn't pretty, but not in the same way. Jessie claims that she never watched Survivor before being on the show, so she was "totally unprepared." Not to mention totally stupid. Bryant "In the Language of Love I'm Fluent" Gumbel dismisses her: "Six days, adios!" Clarence says it was a funny situation, "'cause after [he] stole that food, just nobody liked [him] for a little while." Hee. Bryant now offers to make all of them disappear for a little while, but assures us they'll come back to discuss the "hardships of Africa." It should be a nice, short discussion anyway.
In New York City, Ethan's friends cheer him on every Thursday. Ethan sits up briefly to wave at them, then resumes his slump.
In her audition tape, Lindsey rides her bike naked and repeats, "I think I can, I think I can, I know I can! Whew-hoo!" She says she can do "this Survivor stuff," and that we want her to be on Survivor. Except we didn't. And don't. Both front and back views are pixelated, and she has a muddy-looking flower drawn between her breasts but not covering them. Bryant "Pitching a Tent" Gumbel says they watched "the original" (meaning the unpixelated version?) upstairs. He wants to know, "What were you thinking?" A man in the audience looks very uncomfortable as he stands with his arms crossed. At first I think this is Lindsey's disapproving father, but later I realize it's B.B. from Pulau Tiga, who's just disapproving in general. Lindsey insists that she was painted and then snipes, "What? Are you asking why I did it?" She says she had no idea how to get on the show because she'd never really watched it and didn't know what the audition tapes were like. Her friends thought she should show her "athletic endeavors," but "athletic endeavors" aren't exactly the words I'd use to describe what was just exhibited. In any case, Lindsey says she made a tape of herself snowboarding and mountain biking, but three days before the due date she realized it was lame. So instead, a friend who insisted that Lindsey needed to stand out, body-painted her.
