On Night 35, the women return. Wait, what? Didn't they leave on Day 34? Either they got home after midnight or they had a sleepover. Rupert greets them with a "YAAAAY," of course. Jerri says she wanted to talk to Li'l Russell when she got back, but he and Colby were already asleep. Everyone goes to bed except for Rupert, who sits in front of the campfire and starts sawing wood. How many times does this happen on this show? Everyone wants to sleep but some weirdo oblivious contestant stomps around making noise all night long. Don't they ever learn? Meanwhile, Rupert is now throwing boulders on top of sticks. "What an ass," Jerri says. "He's just completely clueless," Colby says. And when Colby says you're clueless, you are CLUELESS. Jerri is still astounded by Rupert's rudeness and lack of consideration for others when she interviews about it the next day. "I don't know if it's incredible cockiness or just complete stupidity," she says. Pause, then: "I'm leaning more towards stupidity." Ha! I love Jerri again. She makes the most of being unable to sleep by talking to Li'l Russell. She tells him she's worried that he's mad at her. He says he wasn't mad, just disappointed because he couldn't see his wife. Like he gives a shit about Melanie when Parvati's around. Please. He assures Jerri that he still wants to go to the end with her, then interviews that he's "back on board" with her and thus back in control of the game because he "controls" Jerri. Except that, as we just saw when she took everyone on that reward challenge except him, he really doesn't. He says he was worried that Parvarti would try to swing Jerri over onto her side, but Jerri tells him there's no way she'll switch. They go back to bed and Li'l Russell tells us that he won't tell Jerri about voting Parvati out until right before the Tribal Council.
