At Mofo Maji on Day 26, Lex Loser tells us that Brandon's place in the tribe has become complicated. He points out again that Brandon saved their skin, but Ethan and Tom don't trust him; he says the members of the Boran alliance have discussed voting Brandon out next, and he doesn't know if he can do that. Ethan and Lex Loser have a conversation about Brandon, and Ethan shitmouths, "Is your word just your word or does your word have a different level of words?" He wants to know if Lex Loser's commitment to Brandon is as strong as his commitment to the Boran alliance. Lex Loser explains that he's in it with the Boran members until the end of the game, but then Ethan then wants to know how far Lex Loser's commitment to Brandon goes. Lex Loser explains that he's committed to Brandon until the others vote him off. Tom walks by, and for some reason Lex Loser and Ethan clam up and look guilty. Tom tells us, "The big boy can smell a rat. How did Lex and Brandon get so tight all of a sudden?" Shot of some tight monkeys. They're not piggybacking monkeys -- quite the opposite, actually. Tom says that if it comes down to a conflict with Lex Loser, he'll have to go against "tribal boundaries" to get more votes for himself. He has a lot of trouble saying "tribal boundaries." Frank and Tom gather firewood together, and Frank insists that Brandon will go down before he does. In a confessional, Frank tells us that he likes Tom because he reminds him of "back home." He says they're similar, because they're both "slow" and "firm" and like to get things get done. He also says neither of them values political correctness, and that they're both men of action and should have met each other on the first day. He respects Tom's original Boran alliance, but thinks Tom is growing uneasy with "Lex's recruitment of Brandon right next to his side." Frank concludes, "People are changin' their mind like they're changin' their underwear." We see a shot of Brandon looking down, and Kimp looking angry, but not a shot of someone changing their underwear.
