Kat offers up an "explanation" for why she chose those two and here it is: "I've been wanting to hang out with these two girls for a very long time, just us. And alcohol, I mean margaritas! Oh my God! I'm about to get drunk." Unsurprisingly, no one laughs at her explanation; they all look sad and/or angry. The non-chosen contestants have to say goodbye to their loved ones. Once the loved ones have departed, Sabrina wipes away tears and whispers to Tarzan that she should have been chosen. Chelsea agrees that it should have been Tarzan and Christina. Kim interviews that Kat made a selfish decision and they'll have to do "major damage control back at camp." Here's my take on it: she should have taken Tarzan. That said, I didn't see either Kim or Alicia volunteering to give up a spot so that Tarzan could have it. Maybe they didn't want to rock the boat. Maybe they wanted to let Kat sink her own ship. Maybe there were other nautical metaphors involved. I don't see why Christina should have gone; by her own admission, she wants to spend more time with her father and hasn't so... that's on her. It doesn't help Kat's case that her stated reasoning for her choices was imbecilic, but it's Kat? Does anyone expect anything different at this point? She didn't know what an appendix was.
Kat and her chosen few arrive for their reward. Kat interviews that she deserved to win because she hasn't won anything so far. I didn't know that everyone deserved a turn. Anyway, Kat also can't wait to spend time with Kim and Alicia as friends (because at camp, they are enemies?) and while she realizes it may not have been the best strategic choice, she's going to eat and drink now and deal with the rest of the tribe later because her decision has been made. I don't think she realizes how unpopular her decision will be with the others, especially after they have had time to sit at camp and stew about it. The three rewardees lay out how the game has gone thus far for their loved ones and Kat adds that she thinks they should take out Sabrina next because she thinks she's going to the finals, whereas Christina knows she's not. Really? Does Kat really believe that Christina is content to just hang out until they get close to the finals and then go home? Kat also thinks that she, Kim and Alicia are the final three, but that they don't need to talk about it. That seems like a GREAT idea.
After eating, the rewardees split off to spend alone time with their loved ones. Kim (who is sporting QUITE the lady mustache by this time) tells her sister that she thinks Kat and Alicia are her best option for final three. No one likes Alicia, although she doesn't know it and Kim thinks that Kat would blow the million dollar prize in a year because she's so dumb. So Kim' strategy has been to assure those two that they would kick her ass in the finals, even though she doesn't think that's true. Kim's sister agrees that is a good strategy. Kim explains in an interview that she thinks she can beat Alicia and Kat, but they want to vote out Sabrina next. Kat doesn't want to betray Sabrina, but she also doesn't think she can beat Sabrina in the finals, so it might be time to cut her loose. I love how Kim doesn't say, "But Sabrina's my friend." I love how Kim plays the game: she tries to be a decent person while also recognizing that it's a game and emotions shouldn't be a part of her decision-making. We'll see if that actually works out for her.
