Aras is completely delighted to see Terry coming unglued like this, which I can't really fault him for, considering how many times Terry has lectured Aras about maturity. Aras hollers, "Somebody call a whambulance -- Terry's crying on the co-ourse!" It's horribly juvenile, but no one has ever deserved it quite as much as Terry does at this moment. Terry, taking things about a half-step above "I'm rubber and you're glue," declares, "I'll have to take over your role." Yeah. The problem there is that you can't really do that when you're the current egregious whiner. Whining about the rules of a challenge, particularly while it's going on, is kind of like whining about the officiating in a basketball game. You're not fooling anyone; you're just pissed off that you're losing. Everyone understands, but you're still wrong. Anyway, Aras opens another lock and starts on the last one. He gets the third lock, pulls the string, and his flag comes down. So Aras is the winner. When Terry returns, he says to Aras, "Good on ya, good on ya, you got...whatever he said, and I missed it." And had he left it there, he would have almost redeemed himself for his little meltdown. But now, even though the challenge is over, Terry feels the need to open his bitch session about the rules again. He wants to clarify again, even though Jeff already did, that you could look at more than one thing after your first trip to each station. "Well," Terry says, "the second time I came back, I didn't have to come back. I could have stayed out there." So Terry just needs the rest of the tribe and the viewers at home to know that if he had understood the rules, he could have won. That's all that remark is about. It's just...it's remarkable what a bad moment that is for Terry, and how he doesn't realize it.
