An uncomfortable Cindy, for her part, wants to know why nobody talked to her about what was happening with the Judd boot. Steph claims that they wanted to tell her, but Cindy insists that they didn't even have to tell her; they could have just felt her out to see whether she'd be amenable. But the problem is...they really couldn't. Once you admit to one person in your alliance that you're considering turning on another person in your alliance, the risk is already out there. If they try to feel out Cindy and Cindy goes to Judd, then they have a mess. Once they had the votes to make the boot, not telling anybody else was the safe play for them, even though it makes Cindy uncomfortable. Cindy huffs in an interview that she was not "privileged to the information," by which I believe she means "privy to the information," but she's a zookeeper after all, and monkeys aren't big on precision. Cindy takes note back around the fire that she doesn't like the fact that Judd was the one left out of the Jamie boot, and now Judd is gone. Because if that's the case, then what does it mean that she was the one left out of the Judd boot? Girl has a point. That would make you feel a little isolated. Steph insists that the next one to go "could be any of us," which is a nice deployment of the technique in which you comfort someone by saying something completely obvious and devoid of meaning.
Howlie stares down at the tribe, wondering where the big loud guy went.
We see the light of dawn break through the clouds in a single chunk, as if God Himself has come to deliver something. I don't want to say, but I think it might be a Pontiac. On the morning of Day 34, talk turns to the fact that Rafe is the last guy here. "In the hardest Survivor ever, it's the gay guy and four women in the final five," he notes. Rafe says that he's happy to be with all the women (or, as he puts it, "four girls"), and then he refers to the group as Rafe's Angels, which is kind of disgusting, because even when there's a guy among women, it is possible for the guy not to be at the center of the dynamic, you know. Steph opens a game of "Things We Are Not Going To Miss About Guatemala." Rafe thinks for a minute, and then, vaguely disturbed, he says, "Naked Judd." Everyone laughs, including me, although Steph and Danni both have those dumb, nasal laughs, like "hnah-hnah-hnah," which takes away from my enjoyment because it reminds me of a lot of women I don't like, and it also reminds me of a flock of geese. But I can certainly get behind the not-missing of Naked Judd. I don't even miss Judd With Clothes On, and although I never saw much of Naked Judd, I can extrapolate, and it's not pretty.
