In one of the greatest moments of the week and probably of the season, "Dreamz" comes over to Mookie and Alex and says, "Why y'all ain't hanging out no more?" I mean, you think you've seen gumption, and then you see...this. Alex is all, "Why do you think, man?" And here, "Dreamz" actually attempts to argue that he did not flip. Seriously! He insists that the fact that he voted for Mookie while everybody else voted for Edgardo means that he's just as much a victim as they are. And it's like what he's saying is so spectacularly ridiculous that for a minute, it looks like it might be working. Because...it's Alex and Mookie, you know? They're not geniuses, as we already know. They're completely confused by what he's saying. Alex and Mookie also don't understand the vote, as they seem to think "Dreamz" voted for Edgardo. Who they think voted for Mookie is a mystery, but they're talking about how, had he voted for Cassandra, it would have been a 4-4 vote between Edgardo and Cassandra. He clarifies that he voted for Mookie, and this doesn't help his cause too much. What "Dreamz" tries to claim, ultimately, is that he was trying to go along with the Earl-liance without really helping them, I guess? I don't know. He thought they were voting for Mookie and that the die was therefore cast? Something like that. I mean, that part is actually sort of true, so maybe that's what he's saying. He goes on to insist that he would never turn on Alex and Mookie. "Ever. Ever!" Because that's how you can tell people are telling the truth. It's the second "ever." "Dreamz" then interviews that this was a total lie, of course, and that it was totally his fault that the flip happened. My favorite part is that while "Dreamz" is voicing over with this explanation, you can see Mookie counting on his fingers in the background. Scheming is hard! Alex insists that he only cares about the betrayal aspect. (Me too. My fingers hurt!) "Dreamz" tells them that if they want to stay around, all they can do is win a lot of challenges. And then he tells us that he just wants to stay as friendly as possible, so that he might get their votes at a final tribal council.
Challenge clearing. Two giant slingshots. Jeff says that they'll be randomly split into two teams. They'll go up against each other, with each team having a slingshot operator and three catchers out in the field of mud that's before them. If you catch a ball, you get a point for your team, whether it's your team's ball or the other team's ball. First team to five will win reward. And what's the reward? It's your basic overnight spa getaway with eating and bath products. Try Olay! It's delicious! (Shout-out to Wing's mom, who loves Olay almost as much as I do.) Also, the winning team will send one of the losers to Exile Island, where that person will see a clue for a newly buried idol to replace the one that Alex burned -- I mean, "played" -- last week.
