Li'l Russell makes a move towards the chickens first, and that's all it takes for chaos to begin! Probst must feel so necessary watching this at home right now, seeing how crazy things get without him around to scold the contestants. Except that I have a feeling Probst hasn't watched this show since like Season 3. Not even the pleasure of watching himself on the screen is enough of a reward for Probst to watch his own show. Dave Ball takes off for the closed chest. Shambo throws her stuff down and run towards the chicken cage, actually reaching it before anyone on Foa Foa even though they're closer to the cage and had a head start. Either Foa Foa is just that slow and crappy, or Shambo LOVES chickens. She throws the cage door open as Dave Ball finds a note inside the chest with instructions for today's Reward Challenge. It's a game of bocce, essentially, with a flag placed in the middle of the circle and each contestant given three balls each to throw towards it. Whoever gets closest to the flag wins the chickens for his tribe. Meanwhile, Shambo comes walking up with a chicken in either hand. Seriously, she has one chicken by the neck and another by the wing. It is one of the funniest things I've ever seen on this show. A woman who calls herself Shambo and has a tremendous mullet just standing around holding chickens like it's no big thing. Words cannot describe it. Dave Ball tells her to put the chickens back in the cage. Amazingly, the chicken she has around the throat isn't dead yet, and is happy to return to its home.
Russell plants the flag in the center with his usual undeserved self-importance and the game begins. Mick and Russell throw first. Mick's first two throws are very close, and Russell's second throw only helps Foa Foa as it knocks into Mick's ball and sends it even closer to the flag. With two Foa Foa balls closest to the flag, the blonde interviews that she just wants to make sure her balls don't knock Mick's out of the top spot. She knocks one of his balls slightly further away with her first toss. Ha! She's awful. Shambo promises to knock Mick's balls away from the flag, so, of course, she doesn't come anywhere near that. Her other two throws also suck, to the point where she is calling herself "Shannon Lee" in disappointment. "Shambo is like no good," Russell interviews. Is there anything she can do? Li'l Russell gets his ball closest to the flag with his third throw, leaving Dave Ball with just one chance to win it for Galu. His useless tribemates remind him of this fact over and over again until he has to shush them. Then, calm, cool, and collected, he throws his last ball and wins the game for Galu. Dave Ball and Russell scream and point at the flag while Shambo says "oh my god" over and over again. Foa Foa tries to be gracious in defeat. They're used to it, so they do a good job. Mick interviews that it was demoralizing to lose to Galu again and watch them leave the beach with the chickens. "We can't even pull off freaking bocce ball," he sighs. No, you can't. You guys are just terrible.
