Happy music plays! Dolphins swim! We must be going over to Camp Galu. Erik and the blonde arrive at camp with treemail announcing today's reward challenge. It has the word "damn" in it! Spicy! The treemail came with bathing suits, which Monica is beyond happy about. Shambo is, too, I think. "Rock and roll man, I got my jogging bra on," she says. The music stops for a second so we can all be horrified by the thought of an older woman in her jogging bra. It shouldn't surprise you to know that the editors of this show are all men. Monica, Laura and the blonde do Charlie's Angels poses to show us their complete lack of creativity.
Reward challenge! Probst calls the tribes in and reveals that not only was Betsy voted out last night, but Jeffrey Tambor also had to leave. I would think that Yasmin told them that part already, so they don't seem surprised. Actually, why haven't we seen what Yasmin told her tribe when she returned from Foa Foa's tribal council? I'd like to know how she felt about what Ben said to her and what she chose to reveal to her tribe. But I guess that would mean giving more camera time to Galu and less to Li'l Russell, which is unacceptable. Probst takes back the immunity idol because this is yet another reward/immunity combo challenge. Ugh! I hate those. He explains: two members of each tribe will run through the water and into a "battle zone" where they will wrestle a defender from the other tribe trying to stop them. Once through that, the two swim out to retrieve a crate with different colors on its sides and bring it back so the next team of two can go and do the same. Once they've got all four crates, they have to stack them vertically so that each crate shows a different color in each row. Winner gets immunity and comfort items. And this is the stupidest thing of all: only six people from each tribe can participate, so both tribes have to sit people out. What is the point of a challenge that every teammate can't participate in? Just save it for later on in the game when the tribes have less people on them. It's that simple. Foa Foa sits out Li'l Russell while Galu sits out Shambo, Yasmin, Erik, and Brett.
For the first round, it's Liz and the long-haired blonde against Monica and Laura. Okay, those two are fucking identical. When standing next to each other, I have no idea who is who. Whose bright idea was it to put them on the same tribe? Why not put both Russells on the same tribe, too? And the blondes are going to serve as the battle zone defenders, so now everyone looks the same. This is ridiculous. Probst calls go, and the women race to the battle zones for hot girl-on-girl action. The defenders do a good job trying to hold the women back and boobs fly out of their bikini top holders. Galu gets out of the battle zone first, so Ashley goes to help Liz and the other Foa Foa blonde get free from their defender, the Galu blonde. Galu gets the crate back first, and Dave Ball and John set out against Ben. Um, didn't they give them bathing suits? Why are they still wearing little bikini underwear? Anyway, since Ben is not allowed to trip anyone, both Galu guys get past him easily. Let's cut to a shot of Li'l Russell wondering just how useful in challenges Ben really is. Mick and Jaison set out against Russell, who takes Mick down. Ben tries to help, as does Jaison. Except that Jaison is actually doing something while Ben just hugs Russell.
