The sloth is still making its way up the tree as we head to Tambaqui. The tribe returns from the challenge to find their fruit and spices awaiting them. HeiDDi congratulates the others: "Well-needed, well-deserved." In an interview, she tells us it was a "big one." Roger counts out the fruits. Roger must like to count things; he counted the sodas in their fridge, as well. HeiDDi narrates that they won vegetables, spices, and "fruits galore," but more importantly, the victory showed that she was part of a strong team. As the tribe members feast, they discuss their win. Christy reveals that she was glad to compete against Jenna because she wanted to take her down. Butch groans, "She went down!" and Christy emphatically responds, "I needed her to go down like that." HeiDDi half-heartedly pats Christy's shoulder. Christy announces that when Butch's turn on the log came up, she thought to herself, "He's believing in himself! He's believing in himself!" HeiDDi next tries to distract the group from her own pitiful performance by going on about how they came together as a tribe and pulled the challenge off "as a team, not as individuals." Like any non-contributing member of a team says.
Butch announces that he'd like to share something with the group. And if Butch wasn't so earnest, he'd be kind of hard to take. He reveals that he's had five or six "defining moments" in his life, and he has added another one within the past few days. He says that Christy's smile when she realized she'd been kept at Tambaqui for her talents and abilities was unbelievable, and when she climbed out of the water after the day's victory, he thought she was "gonna jump out of her skin." No, that's HeiDDi in next week's episode. Butch thinks Christy at that moment realized her value to the tribe, and realized that she was one of them. She'll never forget that moment, and he won't either. He looks her in the eye and says, "You don't have a disability. That's how I feel about it." A gleeful Christy tells us in an interview that she's strived throughout her life to show people what Butch expressed: "There's nothing wrong with me!" A choked-up Christy thanks Butch, who bashfully responds that he meant what he said, and that he's proud of her for excelling.
