Back at camp, there's a big rainbow, and there are a lot of unhappy people. Denise dishes herself up some fish broth and interviews that she's "very upset" about the fact that she wasn't chosen and wound up left behind. "I'm big, I'm fat, I'm always the last one picked," she says. "It's been like that my whole life, and here it is again." Aw, Denise! I'll bet the kids love your Tater Tots! She tells us that she's now thinking maybe her erstwhile alliance will ditch her "when it gets down to the final seven." I have a hint for you, lady: there are only nine people left. You definitely need a better plan than F7. Anyway, she wonders whether she's going to be sent home before J-R and James: "I don't want to be that person." Hey, at least she's thinking about it. Denise tells the former Zhan Hus that she's still surprised that they took out Aaron instead of James.
A discussion breaks out in which those not at the reward (Erik, Peih-Gee, Denise, Courtney, and Frosti) realize that they all sort of want J-R out, for what seem to be combined personal and strategic reasons. Everyone thinks Jean-Robert's kind of shady, and everybody would like a place to lie down in the shelter. Peih-Gee looks up at them all, like, "Dudes, there are five of us. Want him out? OUT!" I love how Peih-Gee is the one who's always trying to make people understand that they can just...vote, you know? I actually think that, particularly for someone who started out really, really badly, she's playing awfully well right now. The situation she was placed in was awful, and she's really a scrapper to still be in the mix this much. She interviews that, among other things, she doesn't have a lot to lose, what with her own ass so close to being imperiled, so she's perfectly happy to try anything that has a nonzero chance of success. She also tells Denise and Courtney that she'll make a deal with them that if she stays longer than J-R, she'll vote for either one of them who might make it to F2. Denise interviews that since nobody likes J-R anyway, "it's kind of an easy vote" if they decide to remove him. She tells us that she's "thinking it over." She tells the group flat-out that she's going to go with whatever alliance she thinks will work out best for her, and good for her, because this way, she doesn't have to get into complex loyalty games that never end well for anyone. "I wouldn't expect any different," Erik says. This conversation is entirely too mature. Bring back Jean-Robert!
