The losers return to their camp. Coach singles out the women for praise in the challenge, since they did, after all, kick ass at ribbon-unraveling. Christine runs off to an interview to talk about how the guys blew the challenge and now they have to vote someone out. She claims to understand that being voted out herself is a possibility. While some kind of horrible worm/snake/maggot thing crawls along the beach, Coach pulls his alliance together to talk about tonight. He's assuming that Mikayla, Christine, and Stacey are smart and aware enough to have their own alliance and that one of them has the idol, so it's their best bet to split their votes to make sure the idol doesn't have any effect if it's played. Coach, of course, is happy to get rid of Christine before she can get rid of him. He says they can use Edna as their necessary sixth vote, but she's on a "need-to-know" basis right now, not like she really seems to care what happens one way or the other. Upon hearing that tonight's targets are Stacey and Christine, Li'l Li'l Russell frowns.
Later, he and Coach talk, and Li'l Li'l Russell admits that he isn't thrilled with how things are going. Coach ridiculously puts his arm on Li'l Li'l Russell's shoulder and leans in to ask what's wrong. Li'l Li'l Russell says he doesn't like Mikayla "because [he's] faithful to [his] wife," like, you can be on a tribe with Mikayla and still be faithful to your wife! Or maybe not if you're convinced that you're just so irresistible that someone like Mikayla who can do a lot better would love to have sex with you and you're so not into your wife that you'd be willing to have sex with someone else. "It makes me feel uncomfortable being around her a lot of times," Li'l Li'l Russell whines. "I respect that," Coach nods sagely. Li'l Li'l Russell says Mikayla reminds him too much of Parvati, who "screwed many a man." She's also fucked over a few women, too, Li'l Li'l Russell.
Coach interviews that he "understands" Li'l Li'l Russell's problem with Mikayla, but since she's the strongest woman on their tribe right now, he is not going to vote her out. He thinks Li'l Li'l Russell has "demons" that are causing him to have such a problem with the tribe's strongest asset. Yeah, demons like a penis. Having no luck with Coach, Li'l Li'l Russell talks to Sophie and Rick about Mikayla, who he thinks is "not to be trusted" and needs to leave as soon as possible. Sophie and Rick are just like "uh ... what? Who? That girl who has been fishing for the last five days, you mean?" In an interview consisting of no less than five separate audio clips patched together, Sophie says she can't figure out why Li'l Li'l Russell hates Mikayla so much, other than he feels threatened by how awesome she is at everything. Sophie says that could be a problem, since she sees herself as a strong woman, too. Yeah. I don't think she has too much to worry about. She's a med student, not a lingerie football player.
