Back at camp, everyone who won food is obviously busy either feeling sick or pooping because all that rich food after weeks of starvation is a mistake. Troy takes his clue outside of camp and reads it to the camera; it says that he will automatically advance to the second stage of the challenge so that instead of 1 in 9, his odds will be 1 in 4. He tells the camera that he's going to win the challenge and he has to, but he says "baby" a lot. What is happening to Troy? It's like he's having a personality transplant right in front of us. He seemed okay when he was in an alliance; now that he's on his own, he's becoming paranoid and angry. He thinks that the women are scared of his power now, but meanwhile they are back at camp doing laundry and not looking scared at all. I have to believe that if they were actually scared, the editors would have put in an interview of one of them stating that right here.
As part of his Fear 2012 Campaign, Troy has decided to openly look for an Immunity Idol as well. So he climbs trees and looks in holes and whatnot. Kim comes back to camp and reports what's happening and Chelsea points out that they don't even know if there is an idol left. Kim thinks they should all look, since their odds of finding it are greater with more people looking. Well, they would be except for Kat. And Alicia. And Leif. Can you see any of them finding an idol?
Chelsea interviews that they were all disappointed when Christina let Troy win the note at auction and I get what she's saying, since none of them had enough money left to win it. But perhaps they should have anticipated that happening and come up with a strategy. I'm not sure why Christina had to sacrifice. Then again, Christina didn't spend ANY money at the auction, which still puzzles me. Chelsea also thinks that Troy has put a target on his back. I don't know that Troy had much choice, although he didn't have to be such a dick about it. Troy pretends to find an Idol as Kim watches. I don't know if she bought it or not. Also, Kim is the only one out there pretending to look for an Idol so I guess no one agreed with her strategy of everyone looking. Kat doesn't think that it's a big deal, since they have the numbers to just flush out an Idol again, although she notes that if he also wins the next Challenge, it will be "a two-bummer." I love that phrase. Kim interviews that Troy is really dangerous right now because he's smart and he feels cornered, a deadly combination. I still don't think the women are as scared as Troy thinks they are, though.
