A bug hangs on the back of a leaf. Another strange-looking bug hangs out. Shii Devil brags in an interview that the logic puzzle was "so easy" that she could have done it in her sleep. Except the challenge was to do it while awake, and that threw her a bit. Actually, she says that neither she nor Jake bothered to step in. Robb says, "Bless her heart, dude. But Shii Ann just gets on my nerves!" In an interview, he says that the rest of the tribe has decided that Shii Devil is their weakest member. ["And by 'the rest of the tribe,' he means Stephanie and Jed, the only two members that can abide his company longer than five minutes." -- Wing Chun] He continues, "Poor girl just doesn't click," because it seems like she's trying too hard. Robb tells Ken that he thinks Shii Devil is a "good girl," but that she's also the weakest. In a spliced-in confessional, Ken says that they have "some lazies, "and some who hide it better than others. He complains that it's not that Jed's not valuable, he's just lazy. Ken then responds to Robb exactly the same: Jed's lazy, and it's pissed people off. He tells us of Jed, "It's different to be just lazy and not help us, but he's lazy and hurtin' us." Hee. Robb preens into his sunglass lenses and admires his tongue ring. Erin tells us that, with so many environmental factors working against them, they need unity. She says that certain people are a detriment, and that she'd rather just "get rid of them."
As the tribe arrives at Council, Peachy explains the ritual of the first visit: fire represents life, and when your fire's gone, so are you. He promises that those remaining post-Council will get to keep their torches for future extinguishing at Tribal Councils. Except not that explicitly. Peachy wants to "get right to it," because he hasn't had the opportunity to get to know them yet. Well, he knows they don't fight fair, but he doesn't say that here. Shii Devil was surprised by the lack of food and shelter -- she was shocked by the lack of help. Peachy wants to know whether Jed expects food, and he says he doesn't expect anything. He thinks they'll live on snails for a week or two and then "drop like flies, probably." Peachy asks what specific role Robb plays in the tribe, and he does not answer "Sook Jai Psycho." Instead, he calls himself a "happy-go-lucky kid" and insists that he's trying to "apply himself everywhere" and stay happy. He's drained because he's used to eating, and he's a "high-energy guy" accustomed to "bouc[ing] off the walls." Peachy wants to know whether the lack of food will be ultimately be divisive, and Stephanie says it's already affected her. She takes a jab at the fatties and skinnies in the tribe by claiming that the fittest people will suffer first because they require the calories that their bodies are accustomed to burning; she thinks fit people tend to "sink faster." She says they're grumpier, and that it could get bad. Peachy says it's never fun to vote someone out no matter what, but I don't think that's always true. He calls out Jake for having selected the tribe. Jake hates to vote because he loves them all, but he'll take the "strategic approach" and just "mosey over and vote."
