We get underway with Earl and "Dreamz." Earl misses, while "Dreamz" hits on the first try. Well, you know, he grew up on the streets, where you have to throw fireballs to defend yourself, so it's no wonder. Next, Michelle and Lisi both miss. As Yau Man steps up for Moto against Edgardo for Ravu, Mookie starts poking all his Ravu buddies, making fun of how Yau Man won't even be able to hold the flamethrower up, pantomiming a quivering, doddering old man. That would be, of course, the old man who won his Sumo wrestling challenge when Mookie lost his. Alex grins appreciatively at the hilarity. Edgardo misses. Yau Man...well, he hits. Go to hell, Mookie. "Old guy's good for some good," Yau Man points out. Hey, if the only thing you accomplish is making Mookie look ridiculous, you'll be good with me, dude. Boo misses by only a little. Mookie hits. So now, Ravu is up 2-1. Next up are Cassandra and Alex. Both miss. Now, Stacy and Rocky both lose. Earl and "Dreamz" go, and Earl misses. "Dreamz," who explains that he doesn't drink and thus prefers hot dogs to beer, makes the last hit, and Ravu is victorious. Of course, now Ravu is all one big happy family, and Rocky loves "Dreamz," whom he hated about a week ago in real time. Ravu decides to send Earl to Exile Island, on the theory that he's already been, so he knows all there is about the immunity idol, and this way, nobody else finds out anything. The tribes are sent home, Ravu tasting its first victory ever. Oh, the glory of the win! They get to play foosball! Somebody pinch me.
Ravu, Day 18. The seaplane takes the tribe to the "arcade." Mookie seems to think that this reward will put them right back in it, because nothing cures what ails you like a hot dog. They arrive and are welcomed to "Kava Bowl," which is the arcade at issue. Inside, they find the food and the games. As Lisi explains it, they all pounce on the food first, so that takes precedence. They all eat enthusiastically and toast each other with sandwiches. Rocky says that the amount of food you could shove in your mouth is the only thing on anyone's mind, and that he would have offered a "chill out" to some of those who were stuffing multiple hot dogs into their mouths at the same time -- as we see "Dreamz" doing. It does occur to me that a person could stand to eat hot dogs one at a time. I'm not an expert on avoiding overwhelming your system when you haven't been eating much, but I'm thinking "don't test the diameter of your mouth" would be a good start. The arcade guy comes around and shows them were all the fun stuff is, including the "golf area" where they can play virtual video golf, or whatever you call it. There's even a bowling alley. The members of Ravu enjoy the festivities, and what's great is that since there are only Ravu people here, some of them are guaranteed to win occasionally, provided that they stick to playing each other. Lisi tells us in an interview that this was great for her, because she loves "being around a bunch of boys." And I'd argue with her, except that...I can't really argue with her. Mookie happily interviews that Lisi is just like a guy -- she eats a lot, and you can say anything around her. He even says you can "bump chests" with a girl like that. But he doesn't mean "bump chests" the way that, say, Rocky might. As Lisi plays simulated golf, she says that her status as a woman would make her obviously "the weakest link right there." WHY? God. I don't even hate that opinion as much as I hate the assumed nature of that opinion, you know? It's not because she's a "chick" that Lisi's a weak link; it's because she's a weak link that she's a weak link. I've seen stronger links on a plate of sausage. (Rimshot!) Lisi does think that, in spite of her girl parts and natural weakness, getting to know her has helped the guys to like her more. Hey, maybe they really like to kill ants with hammers.
