Oh, and then we watched a volcano for like ten minutes.
Back to La Flor! Jud blows on their fire and gets a face full of smoke, then stands up looking more out of it than usual. He says he feels "spaced out" and "tingly." How is Jud still not able to start that fire without getting a face full of smoke? I don't recall this kind of thing happening to anyone else with such regularity. His tribemates laugh and enjoy Jud's stupidity, and he interviews that part of his strategy in this game is to make people laugh, but "it goes deeper" than that. Just as he's about to explain what the deeper part is, he gets pinched by a hermit crab. Wow, it's kind of amazing that people like Jud are real. He continues, hermit-crab-free, that he wants to be kept around for his "mentality" and his "spirit." "Whatever you wanna call it," he says, obviously unable to figure out what, exactly, you should call whatever he's talking about. Can we please stop casting people who have never watched this show before now? I mean, Jud doesn't even realize that this isn't a popularity contest. He thinks people will keep him around because he's funny and has a good spirit or whatever. The fact that NaOnka is still there more than proves that this is wrong. Speaking of NaOnka, she has yet another pleasant interview where she says she can't stand Jud and hated him since the first time she saw him. "His hair got on my nerves!" she says. Also, she continues, he's stupid. And while nothing she's said so far is wrong, she still manages to say it in such a hateful and obnoxious way that you want to disagree with her just because.
Let's head back to Espada. It's raining there, and I'll bet they wish they chose that tarp over the fishing supplies now. The tribe eats, and Marty says he has an announcement. Cut to Jill smiling knowingly and sitting back to watch what she basically engineered unfold. Marty holds up his idol, and everyone starts applauding him for some reason. He says he's planning to use it after the merge to strengthen their tribe's position, and Jimmy T. immediately comes forward saying that this will really help them all out and his hat is off to Marty. He leads the group in a second round of applause. Wow, I guess Jill was right. She can read these people like a book. Which isn't easy since they're all insane.
