The camera-shy crocodile makes an appearance, popping up another suspicious eye. Magilla -- with a new spiky 'do -- hovers around the Tambaqui tribe. The men are debating how to build the shelter while a manic Roger orders them around. Rob complains in an interview about Roger's bossiness, but insists that he knows how to play the game: "Yes, Roger. Yes, Roger. Sure, Roger." He just does whatever Roger tells him to do, and it doesn't bother him very much. Roger, however, is bothered by Daniel and Ryan who, he complains, just stand around failing to contribute. He says that he asked them to collect some vines, and it was like pulling teeth. We see Ryan and Daniel struggling unsuccessfully to pull a root from the ground, while Roger shakes his head in dismay. Alex tells us in an interview that they built a "post-modern survival shelter," with "a little trapezoid action goin' on" and several different planes. I'd say it's more "burrow" than "post-modern survival shelter," but maybe that's just me. Alex concludes, "I think -- I'm relatively sure Home and Garden is gonna come and shoot us later on." For all their big talk, the men are definitely obsessed with what the ladies are up to. Matthew can't imagine the girls "dismantling the jungle" like they did, and in an interview, Rob tells us that he doesn't think the women are working well together, and that their shelter can't be as good: "I see them crying, panicking, tryin' to build a cell phone so they can call their boyfriends to come over and help them build a shelter." He supposes that they might have three sticks put together, and, by Deena's count, he's one stick short. We see the "Believe in Yourself" sign, and the men once again cheer themselves.
