In one of those moments that seems small, but is probably going to seriously haunt the people involved, Burton cracks open a coconut, and shares the coconut milk with Shawn and Michelle. As Sandra explains, he shared nothing with anyone else. Now, a coconut doesn't necessarily have enough juice in it to feed eight people, so it's not like he could have shared with everyone. The point, I think, is that if you're not going to have enough for everyone, you have to acknowledge that that's what you're doing, and come up with something moderately diplomatic to say. You can't just share with your buff friend and the girl you've decided you want to sleep with and expect that no one will notice. Because Sandra? Notices everything. Even worse, Shawn makes a great show of going, "Ahhh, refreshing!" when he finishes it. Wow, very bad form. A montage of Shawn and Burton's bossiness follows, and Trish cautions in an interview that the boys have already alienated half the tribe, so they might not want to push their luck. Shawn continues to display his rather weak people skills, too, as we watch him talk to the heavily-bearded Rupert about how funny it is to watch people with beards eat, because of how the beard catches everything. It's the kind of thing you can say to people who like you, but you can't say to people who hate you, because it will make them hate you more. Burton points and laughs. Yeah, they'll be paying for that. Rupert interviews that the boys are a pain in the ass, and that they're just "going to make everybody hate them." I'm well on my way already.
