Spa Day! "My head is so heavy," Parvati complains on the plane. That's just too big a target, having her say that. That's not just shooting fish in a barrel; it's shooting the barrel itself. She interviews that her only hope, at this point, is to get someone over to her side: "Ozzy would be my only hope." Yeah, that's about what I'd think, too. And then we are at the resort, where these very dirty, muddy people are arriving. I like how the greeter lady wastes several perfectly beautiful flower leis by putting them around these filthy, mud-covered necks. Then, she offers them a shower. We watch as muddy shoes and clothes are removed. Parvati looks at herself in the mirror, and at first she looks amused, but then she turns, vamps, strikes a pose, and clearly concludes that, even covered in mud, she is adorable. It's a great little sequence, because it's so unbelievably transparent. Showering happens, and Ozzy tells us that he'll remember the shower forever, because it was his favorite shower ever. Somehow, I think this is not quite true.
Next, the contestants receive massages, and Yul is surprised that Ozzy has never had one before. "Oh, you're in for a treat," Yul says. Probably to Ozzy, but conceivably to the woman massaging him. Yul calls the massage "a nice reminder of life outside of this game." Well, seriously. There will be family and friends and massages no matter what happens. On the other hand, this is how you know Yul isn't really made for this game: he is capable of imagining a happy life with or without victory. Parvati says that after this complete reset, she can certainly last another five days.
Exile Island. Adam has flies on his feet. Ew. He's basically just lying in the sun, baking. As often happens, I just sit here thinking about sunblock. He tells us that it hurts to be on Exile Island, instead of being with Parvati where he can "strategize." He says that he hopes Parvati can find a way to break apart the Aitu four. Keep hoping, kid. He breaks open a giant shell and says that he has no need for fire, because he can eat things raw. That shot of some piece of whatever it is dangling out of his mouth is really, really unappetizing. Maybe he needed a fire after all. A storm follows. Adam says that this experience was "awful," what with the rain pouring down and so forth. He will fight on!
