We return to Bula Bula, still on Day 34, where Stacy is going to fetch the basket-mail. In the basket, she finds a hatchet and a note that indicates a pretty sizable reward. She takes it back to read it to the tribe, and as soon as she reads the part about the reward being "big," Boo immediately tells them all that it's going to be the car challenge. He's probably watched enough Survivor to know that it's about time for the car to show up anyway. "Dreamz" starts telling everyone that he doesn't have a car, and he's the only one without one. In fact, he explains in an interview that he doesn't even have a license, because he's never needed one. So he tells the rest of the group that if anyone would be willing to help him get a car, he'd really appreciate it. Earl makes a "the hell?" face, which I love. Because seriously, dude. "I just want a car," he says. "I just want a car." I want a million dollars, goofball. Sometimes, life hands you lemons. I wish Earl or someone else had said, "That one may have to remain one of your 'dreamz,' because we all have 'mortgagez,' and some of us have 'relativez' who could use 'carz' also." Yau Man observes him thoughtfully, in a really great shot. There's a lot of really spot-on camera work and editing this season, which is something I haven't noticed in a while. Good for them. "Dreamz" interviews that if the challenge has anything to do with strength or agility, he's guaranteeing right now that he's going to win. Oh, "Dreamz." Never start making guarantees.
Challenge course. Jeff brings in the remaining six, saying to them, "And then there were six." I wonder if it makes him sad that there aren't more ways to express that same concept. It's probably like being Fountains Of Wayne and playing "Stacy's Mom" for the eight-hundredth time in three years. Jeff is standing next to a giant blue curtain surrounding...well, something really big. Big! He says he's going to show them what they're playing for. He pulls a big rope, and the curtain drops to reveal a giant black pickup truck. They all look at it hungrily, and the show is nice enough to give you a huge close-up of the Ford logo, along with an FX twinkle. I think from this giant additional close-up of the car's markings, this may just be an F-350 Super Duty. With V8 Power Stroke. Hey, I knew a guy once who had that. Anyway. Earl seems to recognize the car instantly, putting his hands on his head and saying, "That's an F-350!" This truck, Jeff says, can haul three tons and tow twelve tons. I can't think of anyone who needs that much truck, except possibly Fitzcarraldo.
