Later, Fei Long returns to camp, suddenly not feeling quite so smug as they were before. Courtney has badly injured herself trying to chop the rope, and it looks like she's covered her hands with blisters. Everyone tries to put aside blame and encourage her by congratulating her for not quitting. It's...the right move, I suppose. J-R interviews that this has only proved that the team needs brawn, so "common sense" dictates that you get rid of one of the weak women, who are basically Courtney and Leslie. And, of course, Leslie lacks the hot ass that J-R enjoys so much.
The tribe gets into a chat about Zhan Hu, in which Leslie tells everyone else that the other tribe is a lot more upbeat and awesome, and she happens to mention in the same breath that three of them are Christians, ahem. In fact, she says this is why she thinks they chose her to kidnap -- that Christian bond. That is ridiculous. I guarantee you that as Christian as some of the people on the other team may be, they're not choosing Leslie as the member of Fei Long to kidnap because she's a Christian. Aaron gets pissed when Leslie admits that she told Zhan Hu that Aaron was the leader. It's silly of him to be upset, because, like, they're dumb, but they're not dumb enough not to know Aaron's the leader at this point, particularly after Jaime came over and spent time in camp. Aaron says that Leslie might now have divided alliances, and she also has loose lips.
Courtney and Leslie talk about the challenge, and Courtney blames her performance on the bad camp and the bad vibes and how unhappy things are, so this segues into a discussion of getting rid of J-R, who is a poisonous personality, pretty much. Todd scurries off to chat with Amanda, whom he tries to talk into voting out J-R instead of Courtney (based on that challenge). Amanda is really concerned about Courtney in challenges, but Todd thinks...well, he's not sure what to say about that, considering, but he insists they won't suddenly lose all the challenges just because they get rid of J-R. Amanda and Todd seem to part with a tentative agreement to vote out J-R. But when they talk to Aaron, he absolutely nixes voting out J-R based on challenge issues, and he says he's worried about Leslie's "I bonded with all the Christians" stuff, lest she wind up honoring that bond with them more than her own team. Aaron is convinced that Leslie is a real threat to flip at the merge (meaning he's thinking way too far ahead and making predictions he can't possibly, possibly know anything about). Todd looks on unhappily, saying in an interview that he really wants to get rid of one of the big huge guys who will otherwise wind up kicking his ass later.
