Meanwhile, on the boat, Malcolm, Skupin, and Lisa are eating what looks like the world's worst pizza (I'm sure they don't care), cookies, and soda. Skupin never drinks soda so he gets a little loopy from the sugar high. Later, they go in the water and snorkel next to a whale shark. Malcolm even gets to put his hand on it, which is pretty amazing. Skupin, of course, almost runs into it, because it wouldn't be Skupin if he didn't nearly get into a fatal accident.
After their swim, Malcolm, Skupin, and Lisa talk about forming a final three alliance. Malcolm is the one to propose it, and Skupin says that he wants to make a bond and not get left out like Penner. Lisa says that she has liked not having to scramble since they formed their final four alliance, and she'd like to feel that way for the next few rounds too. It's not clear to me here from Malcolm's interviews if he's legitimately planning to throw over Denise or if he's just trying to keep Skupin and Lisa from doing so. Lisa interviews that she didn't really have time to talk the deal over with Skupin before he agreed, so she just went with it, and decided that if it works out, she's golden, but if she decides it won't work, she'll just have to break her word.
The next morning, Denise tells everyone about some pain that she's having in her neck. Not like she slept on it wrong, like a burning sensation. And she's all stuffed up. And you can see two bite marks on her neck. Jesus. Something clearly bit her and put some venom into her system, and she explains that it hurts to even move her arm. Denise interviews that she's trying to tell herself to suck it up because she's only got three days left and if it's an allergic reaction, she hopes it will pass, but in the meantime, she's in a lot of pain. Lisa and Skupin pray over Denise while she cries. I'm sure part of Denise (given that she's stated her aversion to asking God for help) wants to roll her eyes, but also part of her is like, "Whatever works." Abi interviews that she feels bad for Denise but she's also hoping this will affect her in the challenge.
