It's now Day 30 at Barramundi, and...wow -- this thing is almost over. Rodger looks low for the first time and tells us, "We gotta have somethin' to eat around here." Tina says that their bodies are going into shock, and that Elisabeth is not doing well at all. We learn that she could barely get out of the tent that morning, and Tina is worried about her. In a sad interview, Elisabeth tells us she's "shaking and weak," as she cries and looks very pitiful and frustrated. She says that she hates not being able to help, and then Nick hugs her and says, "It's hard to get started in the morning." He then tells her to try washing something, and that it always makes him -- he means "her" -- feel better.
We then segue to a few of the S7 fishing, and Rodger is lamenting the loss of another hook. Elisabeth joins the fishing crew and apologizes for not showing up sooner. Paternal Rodger tells her to come back to the camp and rest with them, and that the only bite he had was "that stupid turtle." All the pre-Survivor hype spent way too much time talking about the crocodiles and poisonous snakes, and not nearly enough time talking about those crazy turtles.
Peachy suddenly shows up at camp looking all cocky and self-important. As the S7 see him strutting over, Nick says that he's bringing rice and Tina adds that "he has a bad look on his face." Peachy then respectfully proceeds to sit on their rice. He says, "I come today because I'm concerned." He says he saw in yesterday's challenge "true lethargy" and a "real lack of energy," particularly in Elisabeth and Nick. Way to target people, Peachy. He then slurs, "You've got thirteen days left, and I don't think you're gonna make it." Except that it sounds more like, "Ironthinyergonnmaeit," because I think he may well be shit-faced. He berates them for not planning better and basically forces them to act contrite and even more pitiful than they actually are. Wow, though, they had twenty-five hooks to start and are now down to one? Colby says that they just planned poorly and can't blame anyone in particular, and then Tina says that "condensation" made them lose some rice. We missed the rice-condensing scenes, I guess. They all talk over each other for a while to see who can apologize the loudest, and then Peachy says, "Here's where we're at. You know, my role is a giver and a taker. Nothing comes cheap." Peachy's pontification is very annoying. He shows them a few bags of rice and says, "It's not comin' without a price." Turns out he wants to trade for the rice, so Rodger offers up their blankets. Sounding irritated, Peachy says, "I'm talkin' serious value." Rodger makes a case for the blankets, and Peachy shuts him down. We then learn that Peachy knew what he wanted to trade from the beginning and just tried to get one of the S7 to suggest it. After a few luckless attempts he finally say, "I'm talkin' camp." He wants the Texas flag and the tarps. The S7 aren't completely convinced until he produces twenty-five new hooks wrapped in a nice little package with a bow. Barramundi agrees to trade their camp, and Colby and Lamber hold hands as the group disperses. Peachy rubs it in by saying, "Who's got the strength to tear it down?" As Colby hands Peachy his flag, he says, "Take care of that, will you?" and Peachy assures him that he will. With his hands full of their crap, Peachy tells them it was "good negotiation," although I can't really figure out where the negotiation, much less a "good negotiation," took place. He also tells them he's looking forward to seeing them at the "unfortunate Tribal Council." This is particularly un-Peachy behavior.
