Around the fire, Rory and Chad discuss Travis's state of mind and agree that he's allowing his thoughts of his family to distract him from the game. In fact, in an interview, Rory refers to Travis's love for his family as "his weakness." He tells this to Travis in person, as well, warning him that this will make people wonder whether he's "trippin'." As if there's ever been a person on the show who wasn't. In return, Travis tells us that he thinks Rory, like many of history's irritating individuals as well as most of the boys I loved between the ages of thirteen and thirty, is primarily "misunderstood." As we watch a little bit of bickering between Rory and Sarge, Travis explains that Rory is only one of several guys who has a strong personality. Travis seems to hold Sarge and Rory equally responsible for the fact that they do so damn much fighting. No matter whom he holds responsible for it, Travis says that he's tired of the arguing and stuff. The more I watch this, the more I think Sarge is in serious danger, once things get to an appropriate point, of being the first of these five to go, because nobody likes a bossy-ass, no matter how much they say they're going to follow you. And the women, in the event of a merge, are going to hate him. Ladies don't like it when you tell them when to take their craps. "Play nicely," Travis tells Sarge and Rory around the fire, "or you're both going to time-out." No kidding. At this point, I would even consider corporal punishment, which I don't generally believe in. But could I paddle Sarge? I believe so. Travis thinks they need "harmony in the team."
