Back at camp, Keith brings Elisabeth the "747 of grasshoppers" to use as bait. As Elisabeth fishes, a turtle jumps up and grabs the hook. I didn't know turtles moved that fast. She tries to stay calm, but tells the others that she doesn't know whether to "break this rod or try and eat it." Then Elisabeth and Lamber check the treemail and find a clue, which contains money. The clue is about finding "the value of food," and Lamber figures out that there's going to be an auction. Elisabeth keeps saying, "Money," and even saying that, she's cute. Tina is aaahhxayted -- I mean excited.
Suddenly, we're at the Survivor auction, complete with a little gavel that says Survivor on it. Peachy welcomes them and says they each have "$500 Australian dollars." In case you're wondering, that's like $247 U.S. dollars. Or like $387 Canadian dollars. Or like $2,005 Swaziland Lilangeni. Peachy says that they'll bid in increments of $20, and that the first item up for auction is four Dureet Toes and a small bowl of salsa; the bidding starts at $60. In my husband's new favorite quote, Tina says, "That's more thin tin dollars a chiyip!" -- I mean, "That's more than ten dollars a chip!" Nick wins this one. Up next is a hunk of peanut butter and four squares of chocolate. I'm wondering whether the peanut butter is particularly appealing to them because it's full of things their bodies need, like fat and protein. This one is a hot item, and Elisabeth is determined to win it. The bidding gets up to $260 before she collects her prize. She is crying and shaking and jumping around with excitement. She says that she would have paid $300 for it, and that it's her "favorite game in the whole world." Oddly, she then slaps Peachy's hand a few times. Lamber buys a big glass of Mountain Dew for $80. Nick wins three crackers for $120. Keith buys something that looks like barbecue chicken on bread, but we don't know for how much. Tina wins eight mini-Oreos. Nick chugs a beer for $100. Lamber buys six French fries and ranch dressing and proceeds to have an orgasm over it. Wouldn't you think they'd serve ketchup with French fries? I'm confused, but that's nothing new. Colby gets in a bidding war with the others for an iced coffee and a chocolate peanut butter energy bar. Lamber acts all cool during this, but then says "damn you" when Colby outbids her. Peachy says, "Sold to the movie star," as Colby wins it for $280. Colby says it's "on target." Next up is a whole meal -- mashed potatoes, bread, turkey, cranberry sauce. Lamber says, "Is that mashed potatoes I see there?" My favorite too! According to her CBS bio, Lamber's favorite meal is "Thanksgiving Dinner." Colby's favorite snack food is crunchy peanut butter. Elisabeth lists peanut butter as a favorite, too. Keith's favorite candy bar is a chocolate and peanut butter Power Bar. There doesn't appear to be anything from Nick's list on this auction. Nor from Rodger's. And we know how much Tina loves her Dureet Toes. In any case, none of them wins any item they listed as a favorite. ["Except Elisabeth." -- Wing Chun]
