They're Back, and They Can't Get a Word In! Whew-Hoo!
Rosie asks what Vecepia will take away from the experience, aside from the million dollars. Vecepia says that being the first African-American to win on Survivor is the best part. Vecepia brags that many people are proud of her right now, and that it's a great feeling. She points out that it's not just African-Americans who are proud of her, but all people of color. She cites her Indian employer, Hispanic friends, "the Thierrys" ["family friends, apparently" -- Wing Chun], and her African-American buddies. So in short, everyone except white people can feel proud of Vecepia. Vecepia says that it's an honor to have so many people praying for her. Rosie agrees that just as Tina's victory was great for women, Vecepia's victory is great for minorities.
Rosie now reveals that she's gotten permission from CBS to play a game with the S16. She has an urn (sadly absent of feet) with "some food" in it; if the contestants chow down, they'll get a prize. Rosie rules that they'll have to decide in advance if they'll partake in the challenge, and then they'll be blindfolded and given five seconds to eat. While they're deciding, it's time for Just Peachy to plug the fifth season of Survivor, but Rosie promises, "When we get back, disgusting food for them!"
Gong, pretty doors open, temples, elephants, tinkly music. Peachy blathers on about sixteen Americans, a tropical rain forest, and "mammoth limestone topography." This time, he explains, it's the monsoon season, and the new S16 will be "pummeled" by frequent storms. And pummeling is always a good thing when it comes to these people. There are also big snakes out there! Peachy promises that they'll begin the adventure in a new way: "An event that will impact the entire game ahead of them." Pretty music, pretty pictures, pretty colors, pretty doors close. Gong! Survivor Thailand. See you then.
