So HeiDDi sided with the men in the night's vote, and Jeanne was voted out. In her post-boot interview -- having just been visited by Colby's mom and her makeup -- she tells us that she knew HeiDDi would turn on her because Jeanne was such a threat. Jeanne is flattered that the men thought so, too. Or else they just like HeiDDi's big boobies. She tells us that she thought she could be sneaky and cunning, while shirking responsibilities like the others, but in the end she couldn't. Instead, she spent her time hunting and gathering and playing with her fuzzy balls. She insists that she wanted to play the game hard and fair, but that it didn't work out the way she intended.
On Day 16, everyone on Jaburu was getting along, and Matthew complained that the members of his original tribe were too "tactical." Alex and Shawna groomed each other, and then Alex blahed on about romance in the air, interest in the air, flirting in the air, blah in the air. Jenna felt like a tagalong dork at the drive-in.
In new Tambaqui footage, Roger asks Christy if she listens to music through headphones. She says that she does, but really loudly, so it's embarrassing to take them anywhere because people "shhh" her. In an interview, Davey Rockett tells us that the new tribe was coming together and old alliances were "melting." We rejoin the tribe as Roger announces that he's stopped at many traffic lights where the music in the car next to him was really loud. I'm so sure all those cars were populated by deaf people. In any case, Christy pauses before humoring him by admitting that some deaf people "overdo" it with the bass in booming techno music. Butch didn't want to lose another member of the tribe because they'd bonded so well and made Christy feel good about herself. Christy's primary role on Survivor is apparently to make other people feel good about making her feel good about herself. Christy asks the others if they want to learn to sign, and she teaches them a little cheer that means "Team Fish." In an interview, she tells us it's great that people want to learn because she can actually contribute, for once. Roger tries to look earnest as he wriggles his hands around while Christy adds that she would instruct them and then tweak the other's gestures to be more accurate. While Christy talks, the Music of Special People Reaching Out to Other Special People twinkles in the background. Christy happily concludes her interview, telling us that Tambaqui is now her tribe and her new home. Davey Rockett likes the "Team Fish" cheer and sees no reason why they need to learn anything else. Or do it ever again, for that matter.
