The first question concerns the meaning of "Vanuatu." It does not, surprisingly, mean "land of fire," so take that, CBS marketing monkeys! What it means is "land eternal." Eliza, Sarge, and Scout get it right. Eliza apologizes in advance, and then she takes her first shot at Chad. "Greeeat," he chuckles. Sarge goes right for Scout, undoubtedly thinking, "This one's for the singing." Scout goes right to Sarge and burns him right back. Or, you know, burns his representative skull. Next, Jeff asks how many islands are in the Vanuatu archipelago. (Vocabulary word!) The correct answer is eighty-three. Everyone gets it right. Eliza burns Chris -- and apologizes. Leann burns Sarge. Chad goes for Julie. Ami takes out Sarge. Chris hits Ami. Julie returns Chad's burn. Twila finishes Chad off. On his way to the bench, Sarge hits Julie with her second blow. "I didn't even hit you!" Julie says playfully. "Uh, it's...beyond that," Sarge says. Julie laughs, but she knows she's in trouble, or she would be if Sarge had any capacity to affect anything that happens. Try not to think about how irrelevant all of this is.
Sarge has a seat on the Bench of Pain next to Chad. Scout hits Chris. The next question is about the meaning of large curved pig tusks. It turns out that they represent wealth. Eliza gets it right and takes out Chris. So there go the guys, and as Chris sits down, he chuckles, "Oh, it's not a woman-man thing." Smug, smug little Ami and Leann stand around tut-tutting about what Ami calls the "bitterness going on." You know, you can declare your alliances and stick to them if you want to, and you can expect other people to accept it as part of the game, but you really can't expect them to not notice or not say anything as you're doing it, and mocking them as bitter for even noticing what you're doing seems a little unnecessarily bossy. I find Ami so insufferable at this point that it almost makes me care about the season, because I do eagerly await her downfall, which really can't come soon enough for me.
