As the victorious Jaburu tribe returns from the challenge, Heidi tells us that they came from behind to kick butt; even Janet is feeling much better now. The group discusses how Shawna set at great pace for them from the beginning, and Jenna busts on the boys for mimicking them at every stage of the challenge. She wondered, "Is there an echo in the jungle?" Heidi proudly tells us in an interview that they realized they could perform as well as or even better than the men.
Butch tells us, as the men lethargically arrive back at camp, that they went into it "maybe a little cocky," thinking there was no way eight girls could have beaten eight macho men. When did "macho" become a positive word, anyway? Matthew looks surly as he asks, "Do you think those chicks really caught a fish?" and then Butch continues telling us that their loss could be attributed to "eight guys believin' in themselves a little too much." So clearly the banner should read, "Believe in yourself, just not too much." In an interview, Rob gives the girls credit for their efforts, claiming the situation is "Billie Jean King vs. Bobby Riggs for a new millennium." Dave asks the group for their silence because he needs to "express [him]self" about something that pissed him off. He tells them that they performed like "cocky assholes," and their false boasting about catching fish was the problem. He accuses them of bringing him down with their "bullshit," and says, "I got character and I got integrity." He doesn't care if the other team is women or men, but they shouldn't be lied to. ["You're putting a giant target on your ass, pal, but still: Go, Dave!" -- Wing Chun] In an interview, Daniel tells us that Dave is too serious and that the incident was not a big deal. He wants to know who Dave thinks he is, anyway. Dave tells them that the next time Peachy asks them how many fish they caught, they should not respond, "Many, many, many fish," and instead should honestly answer, "No, we haven't found anything." In an interview, Rob parrots that Dave is a "stand-up guy" with a lot of honesty and integrity. It's great for Rob, however, who tells us he's going to lie and cheat and do whatever it takes to win, which he thinks will work against Dave. ["Shut up, Josh." -- Wing Chun]
