Reynold, as a fan of the game, knows that Hidden Immunity Idols are a big part of the game. And, they're always hidden in a hole in a tree. So after looking for like two minutes, he totally finds one. Come on, producers. I mean, I get that you want people to find them, because otherwise why have them at all, but does it HAVE to be this easy? At least last season, they did something different with it being the knob on the lid to the rice barrel. Anyway, Reynold tries to calm down so he can walk into camp with a stone face. As Reynold gets dressed for Tribal Council, Laura totally busts him with a bulge in his pocket. She doesn't say anything, but she's worried that he'll give it to Allie at Tribal. She doesn't have enough time to rework the voting plan before they leave, though.
The Fans arrive at Tribal Council. Probst wonders what it's like to play the game with people you may not have much in common with outside of the game. Michael totally calls out the foursome, who became fast friends. Allie says that they're the same age, and they didn't mean to exclude anyone. Shamar says that Eddie and Hope seem like a couple but not Reynold and Allie. Probst asks Matt if he's concerned about the foursome, and Matt says he's not concerned.
Probst asks Shamar how the experience has been. Shamar says he's a big boy and he's having a hard time subsisting on such little food, so he's trying to conserve energy. He says that he's done two tours in Iraq, but at least there, they had leaders to provide direction, but here they are all individuals who want to do their own thing. Probst asks Michael if they failed at the challenge because there were too many voices. Michael thinks so; he knew while they were strategizing that they were in trouble, because no one was making decisions for the tribe. Reynold thinks they need to be one tribe to win, and people get frustrated with Shamar's critiques because he sits in the shelter all day and does nothing. Shamar just chuckles and Eddie says that Shamar was in the hut for nineteen hours of the day yesterday. Probst is shocked but Shamar doesn't deny it. I want to know how they knew it was nineteen hours. Do they have watches? Did someone make a sundial? I would like to see the sundial. Anyway, Shamar thinks he's an easy scapegoat for the tribe's problems because he's big and loud.
