Later, it is a very grim Day 15 at Ulong. Hash marks on a tree show that -- guess what? It's Day 15. At least they have counted days accurately, which, frankly, is a little bit of a surprise. Maybe there should have been more counting challenges. It is apparently early morning, and Bobby Jon is awake and walking. As the rest of the team gradually wakes up, Ibrehem complains in an interview that, as you know if you're watching at home, the team has yet to win a single immunity challenge. Yeah, I think I've heard that somewhere. Ibrehem says that he'll be voting based on who did the worst at all the immunity challenges, which leaves him with James. But at the moment, Steph is having a chat with James, in which she whispers that Ibrehem and Bobby Jon will certainly vote the same way, so maybe she and James should agree to vote for Ibrehem. "Are you sure Bobby's not going to vote for you?" she asks James. "Oh, I'm sure," James says. She asks him again if he's sure. "Bobby won't vote for me," James says flatly. Steph says she's going to go and speak to Bobby Jon.
James now conducts an interview in which he declares, "Ibrehem's overstayed his welcome." After all, he was meant to leave at the last tribal council and so forth. And then James takes a giant flying leap right past "amusing dumb-ass" to "rampaging asshole bigot" with this gem: "By the grace of Allah, he didn't go. Well, my God says he is today." Oh, you fuck. You tiny-minded, backward, hypocritical, know-nothing fuck. The kind of small that you have to be to drag a miscellaneous religious slur into a discussion of tribal council is so particular that it betrays a sense that you carry these things with you always -- these little rocks of distrust of everyone who isn't exactly like you, and you may tolerate people who aren't precisely like you, but it's an inch below the surface, all this ugliness, and you just can't wait for your shot. What a horrifying remark, truly. How embarrassing that we have people like that walking around in polite society. We should make them wear bells so we know where they are. Jerk. ["PS: Same deity. So in addition to being offensive and dumb, James's statement was also inaccurate. Well done, sir!" -- Wing Chun]
