The game begins. Joanna asks Dave (after first ascertaining his name) whether he has a pumice stone. He doesn't. Daniel is next. And whom does he call on? "The really cute girl with the curly hair." Of course we know that the guys know Shawna's name. Nevertheless, he chooses to call her "the really cute girl with the curly hair." Apparently, this is his version of "smooth." Ick. Shawna smiles in acknowledgement, and Daniel asks her if she has soap. She does. Now, when he comes over to collect the soap, he doesn't just take it politely and leave. Oh, no. He says, "Nice to meet you. I'm Daniel." That part, of course, is okay. But then as he's leaving, he says, "Hoping we see each other soon, okay?" Ew! That was extremely smurfy. She smiles, but she's thinking, "Yeah, whatever, dork." Peachy gives Daniel a hard time when he comes up to turn in the soap.
Next up is Jeanne, who addresses Rob as "smiley guy" and unsuccessfully seeks toothpaste from him. Roger then scores some shampoo off Joanna. Heidi asks Alex for a razor, but comes up empty. They smile at each other. He has a nice smile. She has a horse-face. Matthew, picking up on the game, asks Joanna whether she has a pumice stone. She does, as we know, because that's what she asked Dave for. Get it? Now, they all seem to notice how you play. Christy asks Heidi for a razor, on the same theory, and scores for Jaburu. "Hey, Jenna?" Alex says enthusiastically. "How'd you know my name?" she asks saucily. "'Cause I'm really, really smart, and I pay attention a lot," he answers without missing a beat. Sadly, he is so the guy I would fall in love with in this situation. Anyway, he asks her for a comb, and she has one. Peachy asks where Alex learned Jenna's name, and Alex claims that he can't recall. Jenna fetches soap from Butch. As Jenna closes her mystery box, Peachy notes that she's "not showing anything -- literally." "Not today, maybe tomorrow," Jenna says, well aware of her greatest asset with these particular guys, which is their near-holy devotion to the If We Don't Vote Her Off, Maybe We'll See Her Naked school of Survivor. Alex grins. Little voice inside my head: "Hey baby hey baby hey baby hey." Ahem. Sorry.
