Ozzy takes advantage of the excitement to hide his immunity idol in some rocks. Then he scampers off, congratulating himself on an idol well-hidden. Man, I don't know. Why can't he just keep it in his bag? Or is he afraid someone would go through his stuff and steal it? Are they even allowed to do that? If they find it in his hiding place, can they then steal it for themselves? I'm not up to speed on the idol-possession laws here. Ozzy says he won't show anyone the idol, but he will tell a select few about it. First up is James, and the two exchange manly celebratory back slaps. Then he goes to Parvati and Amanda and says, sounding, like, ten years old: "don't tell anyone, but I told James but I found the idol!" The girls giggle in delight. Why is Ozzy telling anyone this? Seriously, why? And why would they be happy? The idol doesn't prevent them from being voted off, so why would they care? If anything, wouldn't they be bummed that it meant they now couldn't get the idol? Amanda tells Ozzy she's "so proud of him," then tells us that the idol is "in our little four-clique and I think it's going to stay in our little four-clique, so we're like the powerhouse right now." Again, I have no idea why Ozzy having the idol changes anything for the other three.
And here come the winds of change, followed by the rain clouds of change, as we head to the reward challenge. The "Favorites" are surprised to see Mikey gone from the "Fans," and even more surprised when Probst tells them it's time for a tribe switch. Eliza looks happy. James and Ozzy are not, with Ozzy swearing so much that his mouth becomes a blur. Okay, so, if Ozzy winds up in the other tribe but the idol is still at the Malakal camp, what does that mean? Does he lose the idol? Will the producers bring it to the new camp along with the rest of his stuff? It's a moot point anyway, as the players select rocks from a bag (with Probst admonishing some of them not to look when picking) to select team captains and Ozzy gets the captain rock, so he'll stay with Malakal. Natalie (whoever she is -- has she spoken at all yet?) gets the captain rock for Airai.
Ozzy and Natalie take their places and the picking begins. Natalie picks James, even though he hilariously tries to look inconspicuous, shrinking down to hide in the back of his tribe. Yeah, not going to happen, James. He's pissed. Ozzy picks Troy. There is no Troy. Ozzy must realize that his new tribe is better off with an invisible person than any of the "Fans." They figure out that he meant the Unfrozen Caveman Firefighter, who's so happy to be picked first that he doesn't care if Ozzy knows his name or not. James picks Alexis, even though he can pick any of the Fans, male or female (I think -- I didn't hear Probst say they had to pick opposite genders, and Ozzy did just pick a guy himself). Joel picks Amanda over Jonathan, probably not without some prodding from Ozzy. Alexis picks Jonathan, who slips on his way over to his new tribe and asks if she's sure about her choice. Amanda picks Erik. Jonathan picks Jason, even though he doesn't know his name. Erik picks Ami. Jason picks "Poverty," who is insulted that he doesn't know her name. And you'd think that a "Fan" like Jason would know how to pronounce past contestants' names, wouldn't you? I mean, she made it to the Final Five, like, two seasons ago. Ami loves a strong woman, so she picks Tracy. Parvati picks "KB" a.k.a. Kathy a.k.a. Kathleen, apologizing to Chet for leaving him for last. He doesn't seem to mind. Tracy picks Cirie, leaving Eliza. By default, Eliza goes to Airai and Chet goes to Malakal, much to Unfrozen Caveman Firefighter's dismay. "Oh my god," he mutters, not that quietly. As for Chet, he just says, "Chetty's here, Chetty's here!" which wouldn't give me too much confidence in my new tribe mate, honestly. The tribes get new buffs, and Erik takes a second to savor the smell of fresh clean things. And now it's time for the reward challenge!
