We return to Zhan Hu, still on Day 4. When the Zhan Hu-ligans get back to camp, they find that the camp is even more flooded than before, the main effect of which is that Dave is very proud of himself, because his fire pit is still there...not that it has a fire in it, meaning that you totally can't tell whether an actual fire would have held up in it. "My empty fire pit remained standing even after it rained!" Well...so would any hole in the ground Dave. It's about whether it would protect the fire. ,p>Fei Long makes its way down to its new fishing boat, which everyone is quite excited about. Aaron explains that the reason they took Jaime with them is that she's got all the love on the Zhan Hu team, and losing her "demoralized" them. Maybe they love her because she lobbied for them to be allowed to eat. Todd cautions the rest of the team to watch over all their important belongings while Jaime is in camp, because The Art Of War mentions stealing from your enemy. Oh, mercy. He is so not the kind of person who needed to be exposed to The Art Of War. I bet he was also this insufferable after he read Bright Lights, Big City. Leslie tells us that, with Todd being so crafty, she wants him on her side.
Off on her own, Jaime opens her tube, which turns out to contain another tube along with a note. Maybe it will just be smaller and smaller tubes until you get to a wee Russian doll. The note says that the second tube, which is sealed, contains a clue to an immunity idol hidden at Fei Long, and Jaime has to give that clue to a member of Fei Long before she goes back to her tribe. So basically, the task is to decide what member of the other team you'd like to have information about the idol. Around the fire, J-R is still telling the group he wants more rest, and Aaron is assuring him that he's rested enough. The two guys go back and forth about their disagreements over sleep and whatever else, as Courtney expresses dismay in an interview that they were giving away the big team secret of who hates each other while there was a "spy" there. She thinks maybe they all could have played nicely together and ignored this "bitchfight" for this brief time. She has a point, although I really don't think that kind of secret does that much good. Jaime tells us that when she returns to Zhan Hu, her report will be that she doesn't see how they're not winning, when the other team is such a bunch of doofuses having bitchfights.
Over at Zhan Hu, I believe Dave is trying to get them to rebuild the shelter out of brick (?), and he and Ashley are still, as Courtney would say, bitchfighting about everything. He's incredibly condescending, she's obnoxious and overdramatic, and everyone else on the team wants to tie both of them up in a burlap sack and throw it on the next production truck out of town. Sherea says that Dave does "talk down" to Ashley and boss everybody around, she's noticed. Good eye! Dave: "Bicker." Ashley: "Bicker bicker." Dave: "Bicker bicker SHMICKER bicker bicker BOO!" Et cetera. Ashley is sure that this will backfire on Dave, because he's being really annoying. I wonder if she wishes she'd worn something with a little more coverage/support, because her boobs are so distracting to me, I can't imagine they don't sort of distract her. (Incidentally, if you haven't already, I must insist that you review the exalted President Beefcake's really, truly, spectacularly funny post with which he honored the forums last week, in which he explains, among other things, why you shouldn't wear Mickey Mouse hands on the first day of Survivor. Seriously, do not miss it.)
