Anyway. Courtney's group is on a good roll, and it's just too difficult for Chiclets and her crowd to catch up. The funniest part is that as soon as they win, they all let go of the rope, and Courtney goes flying. Wouldn't have been so funny if they'd flung her into a post and broken all her teeth. Or it wouldn't have been funny in the same way. I really do think Courtney has to get a lot of the credit for that challenge victory, because much of it had to do with not only getting the stretcher to the right place, but the person on it being able to remain calm and handle the flags smoothly. I think a gymnast is just who you want in that situation.
Terry recommends to his team that they send Aras to Exile Island, because he'll "eat anything." So he's sending the biggest threat off to Exile Island to gather intelligence about the idol. I just do not get Terry's strategy, like, at all. The boat comes and fetches Aras, who's going into exile just like he wanted. Shane, Cirie, and Chiclets head back to camp. The four winning members go off to watch their videos and eat, though we don't see any of it. I bet everybody watched the videos and was like, "Oh, that was nice." Because if anybody had gone on an additional crying jag, we'd have seen it.
When we return, it is still Day 22 at Gitanos. As the three losers return to camp, Shane tries to tell them that the tapes wouldn't have been that great, and that losing the sandwiches and milk is nothing to feel bad about. Cirie interviews that Shane was just doing this to make everyone feel better, because they were really bummed about not getting to see the videos. And then, Shane announces, "I have an issue with my penis." No, he does. Cirie makes a face. Shane tells Cirie that he needs her to look at it, because she's a nurse. She looks like she's never regretted her career choice so much in her life. "I don't wanna look at it," she protests. She asks whether Shane can just explain what the problem is. He tells her no, she needs to look at it. "I can't even touch it," he says. "It hurts." I think it hurts us all at this point, dear. In an interview, Cirie says, "Shane has this funky thing going on with his, uh...testicles." She then says that, "lucky [her]," Shane wanted her to look. And then we cut back to her, just in time to see her pause, then clap her hands like a little kid and say, "Yaaaay!" I dated a guy who used to do that in precisely that sarcastic way, and it cracked me up fiercely every time, because I am nothing if not the world's cheapest date. It's easily the funniest thing about this entire very funny sequence.
