And then it rains. While hungry, bean-less Tempura people huddle under the shelter, Douche stays out in the rain, tending to the beans. If only he weren't the worst meteorologist ever, he would have known the rain was coming and thus how important it was to get the beans off the fire as soon as possible. Brendan proposes not letting Douche into the shelter until he finishes cooking their beans, and the tribe seems to agree with this plan. Brendan interviews that Douche made a selfish decision, which isn't exactly shocking. Then Douche heads into the shelter to wait out the storm and doesn't tend to the beans. And his tribemates allow him in even though they all said they wouldn't. "It's another one of those 'Coach Moments,'" Brendan says in his interview. Thanks to sped-up film, the storm soon clears, only to reveal a pot full of overcooked beans. It's pretty hilarious, actually. The ones they can eat taste bad, and the ones they can't eat are stuck to the bottom of the pot in a congealed burnt beany mess. While Debbie complains, Douche smiles. He does have the decency to say "oh my goodness," when Brendan shows him a chunk of charcoalized beans. Sierra interviews that she's had it with Douche. Not like she'll do anything about it. Even Tyson seems annoyed as he studies the pot and wonders if it'll even be possible to clean the stuck burnt beans out. Douche tries to claim that insufficient dishwashing is what led to all the bean build-up they're looking at now, to which Sierra gets pissy. Debbie rushes to Douche's defense, telling Sierra not to get mad. "No big deal," Douche says. Sierra says she's just frustrated, and Douche would be the same way if one of them did this to him. Douche makes a big production out of Sierra getting her real feelings off her chest because he knows it'll make it to the episode previews if he does.
Douche then interviews that everyone got all bent out of shape over some stupid beans. Nevermind that said beans are their only source of food, and that they only have a small bag of them left after Jalapeño took their other bag, so they really can't afford to waste them on ego trips. Douche chalks his asshole move up to a "bad combination" of weather and him wanting softer beans. I think it's more like a bad combination of Douche being a douche and everyone else in the tribe going along with it because they don't want to get voted out like Candace. Which is also why I refuse to feel sorry for them. If they really want properly cooked beans then they'll vote Douche out. Douche tells Sierra that he's happy she got a chance to say what was bothering her and he thanks her for her comments and takes "full responsibility" for the burnt beans. That's really magnanimous of him considering that it's entirely his fault. He asks everyone to forgive him with a tone of voice that suggests that he isn't sorry at all and thinks the fact that they're making him say it only reflects poorly on them. He then asks Sierra for special forgiveness, since she "seems to have the most angst about it." Sierra, for all her angst, has a productive suggestion that Douche make his beans in a separate pot from now on, so that he can cook them his way without ruining everyone else's dinner. Douche interviews that he will not make his beans in a separate pot and he can't believe everyone is making such a big deal out of something so trivial as their only source of food. With that, Douche announces that the bean subject is closed and it's water under the bridge. I'm pretty sure it's the person who has been wronged who gets to determine that, not the person who did the wronging. Brendan tells us that while Douche does stuff like this all the time, he wants to keep Douche around because he's a "predictable player. And predictable in this game is great" (for Brendan). I'm just hoping that now that Douche has screwed with the beans, the beans curse will come roaring back and remove him from this game for good.
