Shambo tries to talk to Laura again, saying she's sensing some kind of "power struggle" between them while the rest of the tribe look on with blank expressions on their faces. Shambo says there's a "90210 little young thing and [Laura]" clique that she finds "bizarre." Do you think Shambo even realizes that she just insulted Laura by basically calling her old? Because I don't think she does. Laura just says that if Shambo's feeling are hurt then that's her problem. At least, I think that's what she said. The argument was so edited that I really can't tell what's going on. And yet, Li'l Russell is given all the time in the world to make the same point over and over again. I don't get it. Shambo interviews that she wasn't fighting with Laura about the canteens (duh), but about how Laura treats her, like she's the popular cheerleader and Shambo is the overweight girl who smells bad. Also, sad music is playing during all of this so we can really feel sorry for Shambo the outcast. Even though high school was like thirty years ago and she kind of needs to get over the whole persecution complex thing by now. Shambo says she's "done" with Laura and has no use for her, which is kind of hilarious considering the fact that Laura pretty much came to the exact same conclusion about Shambo on Day 2.
Laura, meanwhile, accuses Shambo of turning things around and making her look like the bad guy here. Maybe that's because you treat people like crap so you kind of are the bad guy, Laura? Just a hunch! Meanwhile, Erik and Kelly laugh at them from afar. It won't be so funny when your tribe is all fractured and Foa Foa comes in to take advantage of it and your ass gets voted out. I'd just like to add that I wrote that before I saw the rest of the episode. Either I've been watching this show for too long and so am wise to its ways or the previews are too revealing. Erik interviews from his little tree hole that Shambo is crazy and everyone knows it, so "if you get in a fight with ShamBO, who's the one that looks bad? You look bad. If you fight with Shambo, that means you're just as crazy as her, only you're not really crazy -- you're just being a bitch." Ahahaha! I like Erik. More tree hole interviews, please!
Foa Foa has treemail. It says something about pumped bodies and sharp minds leading to food. Ever optimistic, Natalie says the prospect of winning food is "awesome," while Jaison shows off his new rah rah attitude by staring at the ground and sighing "sooner or later, something'll change for us. I'm hoping today is the day." Li'l Russell decides that the treemail was "so vague" that he decided to dig up his immunity idol and bring it with him just in case there's a merge. You know, I'm having a tougher and tougher time not believing that this guy is a plant. Also, if there was a surprise merge and they had to leave camp, wouldn't they make sure he got his stupid idol back?
