Shane has everything pulled down as Cirie approaches him kind of gingerly. He makes her promise not to laugh, which is the part where I think she showed the most restraint, not that she's really going to deliver on that promise. Cirie has to get kind of close, as she asks him what exactly he's worried about. Shane points out to her a certain amount of redness, which she quickly dismisses as chafing that results -- similar to diaper rash on a baby -- from being damp all the time. And as she walks away, she doubles over with laughter, all as the interview plays in which she claims she was trying to be as "professional" as possible. She tells Shane that the only solution is to get dried out, so now he's walking around naked. Ultimately, he pulls his shirt on like a skirt, so that the neck is the waistband, in order to allow air to circulate. Cirie voices over that he's "like a cartoon character." That certainly seems like the most benign explanation possible. She does say the incident took her mind off of the videos she was missing, as Shane tells Cirie and Chiclets that this is now his "chafing skirt." An owl looks on disapprovingly. I feel you, owl.
Day 22. Exile Island. Aras makes himself a fire, and tells us in an interview that being on the island is good for two reasons: 1) he doesn't have to be around the other obnoxious assholes on his tribe, and 2) he can look for the idol. My favorite part is where they show him somberly picking up the map, looking at it, and then...turning it, because he was looking at it upside-down. Ha ha ha! He talks about how the clue indicates that the idol is under a rock, and that lots of rocks have been moved, so he has no idea whether he's digging in vain. He is, of course, and that pleases me. Aras tells us that Terry is the one he's afraid might have the thing, so he wonders if Terry sent him there, hoping to weaken him. Furthermore, the fact that Terry didn't worry that Aras -- his strongest competitor -- would find the idol might mean, Aras thinks, that Terry has it. I hate saying "Good thinking, Aras" also, but...again, there you go.
