Fang is still feeling low, and Crystal clumsily spills their last bit of rice on the ground, making them even lower. She goes without food to make up for what she lost, and Fang promptly loses the Reward Challenge, which is a game of keep-away. For some reason, Fang puts Sugar in the middle instead of Crystal. Crystal, who is eight feet tall and angry. Weird. Kota gets a helicopter ride, a picnic, and letters from home, which Bob reacts to by bawling his eyes out. Oh, and they send Sugar to Exile again. Whatever.
Then it's straight to the Immunity Challenge, except this time it's for individual immunity with both tribes having to vote someone out. Despite Bob being a college log-rolling champion, he loses to Sugar, who then loses to Marcus. Yes, Marcus the Magnificent wins again. He also gets to give immunity to someone from Fang, and it goes to Sugar. With Matty and Ace determined to vote against Crystal, and Crystal and Ken determined to vote against Ace, it comes down to Sugar. Ken tells her that Ace is using her for her immunity idol, but she's not sure if she can trust him until Ace asks her to give him the immunity idol, just as Ken told her he would. Ace dug his own grave, and he goes home. YAY!!! Hooray for Sugar and Ken!
And over at Kota, Dan continues to be weird, needy, and paranoid, so everyone else wants to get rid of him. Then Susie takes all leave of her senses and tells Corinne she was going to vote for her, and Corinne immediately wants Susie gone. Corinne also wants to stab Susie in the eye. Corinne has anger issues. There's also the fear that Dan has the immunity idol, so Kota carefully arranges it so that if Dan uses the idol, it'll be Susie who goes home instead of, say, Corinne. Since Dan doesn't have the idol, he's voted out. Don't hog the food next time, guy.
And we open with the previously on segment that tells us how awesome Kota is and has been all season, which I can't really argue with anymore. It was one-sided and unfair in the beginning, but now that we've had five episodes for Fang to prove themselves and they've gone from bad to worse, it's pretty accurate. Except that I wouldn't say Kota is such as great tribe so much as Fang just can't get it together. Nor would I agree that "the entire [Kota] tribe was united," especially when Probst follows that up with an "except Dan and Susie." Dan and Susie make up almost 30% of the tribe. That's not an insignificant minority. Also, it presumes that Susie has an opinion one way or the other. Probst does have the grace not to say anything nasty about Kelly when he says she was voted off last week.
A praying mantis brings us into Fang, where Ken and Matty are preparing to make another bowl of rice. Matty complains that there's nothing to eat as he grabs a handful of rice from the side of the pot. I see one grain of rice fall out of his hand and onto the ground, uneaten. WASTEFUL. Matty says he's hopeless about his tribe. And with that, Crystal knocks over the box of what little rice they have left. Her "oh shit!" face is amazing. I didn't think anyone not in a cartoon made the surprised face like that, with the eyes bugging out and the mouth in a perfect little "o." She quickly sets about scooping it up and putting it back in the box while Matty makes a face. He's pissed, he tells us. Crystal just dumped the most important thing Fang has all over the ground. Except that she didn't do it on purpose and she should be able to save most of it. People make mistakes. "I wanted to just lay into her and chew her out," Matty says as he and Ace look at each other and nod. "You can't cry over spilled milk," Matty then tells us, except that that's exactly what he's doing and rice, unlike milk, can be picked up and put back with no harm done. Ken makes a pot of rice and everyone digs in except Crystal. She's decided that to make up for the rice she spilled, she won't eat. "Crystal, eat," Ace says. "Ace, you eat," Crystal says. Be careful, Crystal! The last time you ordered someone to eat rice, he threw a hissy fit and quit! I think Crystal's doing the right thing here, by the way. If you spill the rice, you must pay the price! And she has, so the matter should now be closed. But Ken uses this non-confrontation as an example of how Fang can't work together. He tells us that Ace and Matty seem to be teaming up like Double Dragon's Billy and Jimmy Lee, and he doesn't like that one bit. Meanwhile, Ace tells us that by knocking the rice over, Crystal has done him a favor and made herself the next "lamb to the slaughter." I don't know about you, Ace, but Crystal doesn't look like a lamb to me.
