Sean and Vecepia now sit together while the others frolic in the water. Vecepia picks at her toenails as she states that none of the S15 are children. She says they didn't come to the Marquesas asking their parents every time they needed to do something, and Sean says he's "quite frankly" getting sick of it. In a confessional, Sean tells us that it's nice to bond with "somebody who understand [sic]." He cites his connection with Vecepia as "cultural," adding, "There's certain things with black people -- we don't even have to finish a thought and we already know where we are." So black people are telepathic? And they say reality television isn't educational! Sean tells Vecepia that the other five members of Maraamu are "different, but the common bond that bonds them is that...is that." By "that," I'm assuming, he means lack of telepathic abilities. And also race. In a confessional, Vecepia calls Sean "Malcolm Farrakhan," because he is a "Malcolm X militant-type brother" and also "that real intelligent, outspoken type of young man." Vecepia and Sean discuss how their sitting together could be perceived as strategizing. Sean then tells us in a confessional that the game isn't fair, because he and Vecepia are playing "a whole 'nother mental game" that the others don't even know about, and that you have to "when you're a person of color and you're the only one." He complains that the others don't have to worry, because they can just be themselves. Meanwhile, Sean and Vecepia have to be themselves, but also hold back a bit. He adds, "And on top of that, she believes in God. I believe in God, and we're bound by Christ!" He says that common religious beliefs are a stronger bond than race. Vecepia jokes to Sean that she can already tell what people will say about them, and Sean says they will be called "two ungrateful Negroes." He says people will say, "You take them on an island and they [sic] still complainin'!" The scene concludes with Sean saying, "Where's your Al Sharpton now?" and then he and Vecepia crack themselves up.
Scuttle, scuttle, little crab, into your little hole. And not just one, but three scuttling crabs! It's now Day 4 at Maraamu. Rob climbs a coconut tree while Patricia weaves and Sean is off by himself practicing his pitiful impressions. Hunter tells us in a confessional that some people are there to play the game and survive, while other people are just looking for a vacation. Gina says that Sean appears to be physically strong, so that it's easy to assume he'd be a big help, but "he's lazy." Sean suns himself in the surf while Hunter and Rob are exhausted from work. Hunter tells Rob that they need to go on another water run, and that Sean will do it "whether he likes it or not." Rob cackles in response. In a confessional, Hunter says that he loves everyone in the tribe, but that Sean doesn't want to carry his weight. Hunter then picks up the water jug and asks Sean if he minds making a water run; Sean says, "Not at all," but keeps right on doing what he's doing. I give credit to Hunter for putting the water jug down and not making a scene because Sean didn't respond immediately when asked. After all, why should Sean have to do it the very minute Hunter asks him to? We then see Sean heading off in the background with the water jug as Hunter laments to Gina, "I just wish he worked a little bit more." Sean tells us in a confessional that everyone sees Hunter as the leader, and gravitate toward him to show him their value. He says the general attitude is, "Let me get cool with Hunter," and though that may be part of the game, he won't do it. Sean says that they are a team, and that he'll do what he needs to do "in the interest of survival." Still, he says, "I ain't kissin' nobody's butt!"
