Roger That

Previously on Survivor, Tambaqui "united," while the men of Jaburu "saved [Shawna] from the women." It would have been more appropriate, however, had they "saved [Shawna] from herself." Tambaqui successfully won the reward challenge, and HeiDDi and Roger both flailed, so that was fun to watch. Deena, meanwhile, needed some help. With her ego. Instead, Rob stepped in, and together they formed an alliance. Later, Tambaqui successfully won the week's immunity challenge, which consisted of gnawing on a giant, nasty shank of barbecued meat. This episode so should have been sponsored by Applebee's. A giant piece of beef dangled from HeiDDi's mouth in a completely unsexy way, but then I suppose I could add "in a completely unsexy way" after nearly everything HeiDDi does and be accurate. Finally, Jaburu headed off to Tribal Council, where Shawna's ejection left Alex bereft. And scabby, too, one might presume, since Shawna appeared to spend the bulk of her time picking at his scalp.

Wailing singers and a giant moon bring us to an empty fishing boat. It's Night 18, and we join the members of Jaburu as they return from the previous evening's Tribal Council. As they fumble around camp in night-vision, Deena voice-overs that the vote was awful, and that they miss Shawna's "spark" as well as "the extra little bandanna with the sunglasses." The tribe members discuss their hatred of Tribal Council, and Rob smirkily announces that he feels physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted. In an interview, he explains that Alex is depressed by Shawna's absence. This comment is accompanied by a shot of Alex obsessively rubbing his lips, which we're supposed to think represents his moroseness now that Shawna is gone. Rob admits that the game isn't the same without Shawna, but only because the tribe is lacking another twenty-three-year-old bikini-clad girl. Still, Rob thinks the situation might ultimately be a good thing for Alex because it might make Alex "get his head out of his ass and start thinkin' about the game like he should be."

The tribe gathers, and Rob proposes that they decide as a group to tell the male members of the other tribe that the men of Jaburu have maintained their original Tambaqui alliance. Jenna disproves the theories now floating around the boards of her well-camouflaged brilliance by whining that the men would then vote the women out. Rob dumbs it down to explain that they're not really going to maintain the Tambaqui alliance; they're just going to tell the others they are. Jenna scratches her head and wonders why these other people expect her to have to think when she's just so cute. As the conversation continues, Deena stands besides Jenna and makes sweet love to her own hair. Seriously: she swings it around, bends over and fluffs it, pulls at it, and even sniffs it at one point. Well, she's either sniffing it or kissing it, but the second possibility is too disturbing. Between Tribal Council and this discussion, Deena must have had a bath. And possibly a blow-out. Rob insists that they have to gain the votes of the women of the other tribe, and Jenna expresses confidence in HeiDDi, but not in Christy. Rob reinforces that HeiDDi would be good enough, while a gape-jawed Matthew mentally agrees that HeiDDi would be good enough. For dinner. Matt, apparently, likes the taste of silicone. Rob further explains that with HeiDDi's vote, they'll be able to divide the other tribe, avoid a 5-5 tie, and knock off Davey Rockett. He refers to the plan as "insurance," and adds, "It's kind of, uh, deceptive, though. It's only a suggestion."
