Crap from Africa
Now Tom is at a party. He's walking like an Egyptian on the dance floor while people cheer for him. There's a whole bluegrass band at this party. In a confessional, he tells us that he likes all kinds of music, and that he knows "about one line o' every song." He continues, "Ah like music. Ah like to dance," as we see him cutting a rug with his wife. He grew up with bluegrass, though, and so he loves it the most. Tom's wife Sandy looks like a tiny woman, but then again she's standing next to Tom. She tells us that Tom has always gotten along well with the ladies, and that she's never seen a woman Tom couldn't talk to. This is followed by a clip of Tom flirting with the tick in Lindsey's ass, and with Kimp's bikini top. Sandy thinks Tom is witty. I'd definitely use the word "funny" to describe Tom, but "witty" implies some degree of intellect. Ominous music plays as we see a clip of Big Tom during a Tribal Council approaching the voting urn. He tells us in a voice-over that spelling makes him feel uncomfortable. As we see him cast his vote for "C.B." he tells us, "I couldn't spell 'Clarence.' I put 'C.B.'!" He continues, "There I am. Forty-six-year-old. On national TV. Can't spell!" He tells us that decided to start a reading program back in the U.S. called "Reading is the Key to Survival" because of his own difficulties with literacy. Tom hugs a child and gets really excited about a picture the child drew -- he likes its feathers. Sandy says that Tom realized he could do something useful within their community to motivate children to learn to read, and Tom thinks, "If I can help one kid do better than me, I'm glad it embarrassed me." Tom frolics with his goats and encourages them to "come to Daddy!" He probably uses that line on the Kimp goat all the time. As we complete the Big Tom segment (and thus the humorous portion of our show), Tom tells us, "I'm still not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I'm still in the shed!" He says he's happy to be home -- even happier than he was before he left for Africa.
Kim "Fight the" Powers shops in a fruit market in a leather jacket and cute hat while the quirky song of "I'm Feisty Even Though my Life Sucks" plays in the background. Since she's been back from Africa, the job market has been difficult, and she's been forced to take small jobs -- even as a dog walker -- because she needs the cash. This confessional is accompanied by a sped-up clip of Kimp being dragged down the sidewalk by a dog.
