There are some interesting issues here involving whether bringing back old players is a good idea, as well as whether this is even fair to the other people in the group. And I started giving it some thought, but then I found myself staring at Bobby Jon, and I thought, "He would call me 'ma'am,' I bet," and then I hugged myself, and then I passed out.
Brianna ("Retail Salesperson," like, don't get too specific or anything, Miss Works At The Sharper Image Or Possibly Big Lots) adds that she cried at the sight of Steph, whom she considers "such an inspiration." Jamie ("Water-Ski Instructor," ewwwww) says that he, on the other hand, wasn't crying. He was thinking, "How am I going to win a million dollars now that she's here?" Gee, I don't know, Jamie. By waiting for her to lose about a million consecutive immunity challenges? Just a suggestion. She's proved that she can do it. Over at Nakum, Danni announces that it was good to have Bobby Jon on their team. "A man is just stronger than a woman is," she says. Well, I think it's a good thing she's not on Stephenie's team, then. ["Danni, thank you for making such a terrible first impression that I completely loathe you instantly." -- Wing Chun] Oh, and Danni is a "sports radio host" who thinks Bobby Jon is "easy on the eyes." Cindy ("Zookeeper") praises Bobby Jon's ability to not quit. Brandon ("Farmer" and "Dork" and "Cowboy Hat Guy" and "Language Abuser") says, "Bobby Jon's a tough worker, supposably [sic], so I hear, I don't know, we'll have to see, but, you know, he's kind of a little bit dumb, I guess you'd say." Sigh. Maybe Farmer Brandon would be better called "Pot."
Probst explains that Steph and Bobby Jon are full members of their tribes. They vote, they compete, and they can be voted off. Then, he moves on to explaining the first challenge, which is for reward. The challenge is an eleven-mile (!) race through the jungle. Jeff promises poisonous snakes and crocodiles. The first tribe to finish will get the better of the two camps, and will also get flint to make fire. Jeff tells them that they'll need to pace themselves on the hike, because it's...did he mention eleven miles? In the jungle? They'll know the end is near (not like that!) when they see their tribe canoes. He tells them that they'll take off in opposite directions, where they'll find a compass and a map, as well as water, fruit, and bags of corn. They'll have to decide what to carry. (Not the iron! Don't take the iron!) Jeff will see them at the finish. Ready? Go.
