Roger That

Our old friend the crocodile slides into the water, and even he knows to keep a wary eye on Matthew. Rob tells the group that they need to take the experience slowly and enjoy it. Deena announces that she has a few ideas for the new tribe's name: Jacaré, which she reveals is Portuguese for "crocodile." No one wants to sit through her other smug suggestions, so they immediately agree on the aforementioned Jacaré (forever "Jackée" to me), causing Rob to declare, "A tribe is born!"

In the midst of the festivities, Roger gets up and walks away from the other members of the tribe, while Deena rolls her eyes at his back. HeiDDi announces that she doesn’t want to get up because she's "eatin' chips, man!" Roger voice-overs that the group's attitude was "Let's be festive all afternoon," and they forgot about building the shelter. The other members of the tribe slowly get to their feet, and Davey Rockett picks at his wedgie. If you have it on tape, go back and watch him. Maybe someone can work some "Hamster Dance"-inspired magic with this one? As the other men join Roger in working, the women stand around and watch. The men of Jackée seem most interested in preserving the beer, and offer up their ice-filled raincoats as a cooling system. Roger irritatedly points out that keeping the beer cold isn't a priority, before telling us in an interview that it ticked him off that the other men had invented a "special contraption" for keeping the beer on ice. A quick clip reveals a double-fisting Matt, who must keep his hands occupied at all times in order to avoid the instinct to start cutting people up on camera. Butch calmly tries to reason down Roger's irritation, but Roger's not having it and snits, "So it's warm! So it's warm!" Butch knows when to give up, and quietly concedes, "All right, Rog." In an interview, Alex says, "The problem with Roger is that...he's an ass." Hee. Alex calls Roger a loud, obnoxious, bossy, know-it-all, who is desperate to be the tribe's leader. Alex continues telling us that Roger wanted only his own priorities attended to, and constantly yelled at everyone.

Roger next insists to the group that they need to assign duties. An awkward silence ensues as no one even attempts to respond, before Alex jumps in to point out that their current location is not far from the water, but that they're at an elevated point. He thinks it's only a small gamble to remain where they are. Deena voices her concern about that 150-feet "thing that you're supposed to be from the water's edge for the whole crocodile..." She motions toward the nearby swamp, and Alex agrees that they could move because of potential crocs, or risk staying where they are. Deena proposes that if they do remain in their current location, they should at least move the fire. Honestly, I don't think Deena has that big a problem with their location, but just wants her viewpoint acknowledged. Instead, Roger incredulously asks, "What? To keep the caiman away?" Alex handles the situation more skillfully by agreeing that they could move the fire, but that "it doesn't have to be a big blazer, and it doesn't have to go all the time." In other words, they won't have the fire there at all, but Deena at least feels like her opinion was heard. Roger reiterates that it isn't necessary to move the fire, and insists that the caiman won't bother them while Deena again cites her survival training. The other members of the tribe look perplexed by this argument, and I'm guessing it's because they know Roger's right but don't want to admit it because he's being so annoying about it. Rob laughs straight at the camera before telling us in an interview that there is a lot of tension between Deena and Roger. He says that Deena is a strong woman whom he respects, and that she's a lawyer and can argue her way out of any situation. Meanwhile, Roger just loves to talk. The interview is filmed, incidentally, from an unusual fisheye angle that does nothing to emphasize Rob's good physical features. Whatever those may be.
