The women return to camp and run over to check out their canoe. It's still windy and rainy, though. Kat tries to start a fire. She interviews that their plan is to get the fire going and fix the shelter before the next storm rolls in. Monica is trying to use the flint and some coconut pieces to start a fire, but they're all wet so it won't light. Monica and Kat decide to go over and ask the men for an ember. They walk over and explain what they need and why. Jay immediately says they can have an ember in return for letting the men take out the boat sometime. Monica says she can't make a decision about that without talking to the rest of her tribe. Matt points out that the women were all over there earlier, drying out. I don't know what that has to do with anything other than Matt is still sour about it. I guess he's saying that the men keep doing the women favors and getting nothing in return. Before Matt and Jay can continue to negotiate, someone gives the women an ember. Leif? I can't tell who it was. Monica and Kat hightail it out of there before they can be asked any more questions.
After they leave, Matt comments that they need to stop just giving stuff to the women and getting nothing in return. He's not wrong. But he also doesn't get to unilaterally make that decision. Colton interviews that he agrees with Matt, because he's "a Republican, [he is] not a Democrat. [He does] not believe in handouts." Okay, there's so much to parse here. First of all, way to stereotype the political parties unfairly. Second of all, he's a Republican? HE'S a Republican? He's a REPUBLICAN? I guess he grew up rich, so maybe that's where it comes from, but does he know anything about the Republican Party's social platform? And thirdly, he doesn't believe in handouts, but he had no problem accepting the Idol from Sabrina. What was that if not a handout? Isn't the definition of a handout when someone gives you help and expects nothing in return? Did he negotiate a deal with Sabrina that I missed? Or was it implied? So many questions. One thing that's not in question: I still hate Colton. Right down to his stupid name.
