The Tribal Council area, incidentally, is huge this season. They could fit all four seasons in there and still have room for the Just Peachy fan club. Peachy grins while welcoming Maraamu back for the second time -- he seems to think it's a good thing. Then, he gets right into it. He wants to know how Patricia, who has raised a family and is the "self-proclaimed mom of this group," thinks the tribe is doing. Patricia says they're not 100\% productive, adding, "And that's coming from the mom side of me." I have no idea what that means, so I won't even try to guess. Peachy asks how it is having a mother figure in the camp, and Rob says sometimes it's "a pain in the butt," but other times Patricia is there for him when he needs her. Sarah snarks that they're all adults and don't need to be "barked at." She adds, "I'm twenty-four years old; my mom hasn't told me what to do in eight years." The point of that being that maybe her mother shouldn't have given up so soon? Sarah says it's a difficult situation, but she just bites her tongue and continues. Peachy next asks whether the tribe has developed a daily routine, and Sean sounds sad to say that they have. He feels like they never stop working from the moment they get up in the morning. He realizes that there's always something to be done, but says, "It's wearing my energy down, quite frankly." Sarah tells Peachy that she works sixteen-hour days at home, and that she didn't go on Survivor to do the same. Peachy wants to know what Sarah did go there to do, and she says she wanted to lose ten pounds and experience an alternative from the bar scene. Actually, she says that she came to play the game, meet "cool people," and have an adventure. She admits that she does less of the work around the camp, but tries to credit that to strategy, insisting she's saving energy for challenges. Gina steps up and "totally disagree[s]" with Sarah, on the grounds that if Gina expends more energy around camp to make up for someone else's lack of work, then she'll be twice as tired during the challenges. Peachy then singles out Hunter as the team captain and insists that it must be hard to be 0 for 3 so far in the challenges. Hunter says they've been "skunked so far," and blames it on "some tough breaks." He thinks they'll come back and "take it to 'em." Finally, Peachy asks Rob about his immunity challenge loss, and Rob says he was very discouraged because he let his team down. Gina looks sad for him. Rob says it might be his night, and that he could understand why people might choose to vote him out. It's time to vote, and Patricia's first. Actually, she's second, but we don't know that yet.
