Jenna returns to moonlit Love Camp. She interviews that the tribe was incredibly happy to see her -- particularly Rupert, who was all excited about the fishing spear. Of course, the first thing he does is complain that Mogo Mogo hasn't cared for the spear properly. That is such a totally Rupert way to behave, it's like he's trying to prove I'm right about him. Maybe I should thank him. He interviews that he's waited a long time to be able to catch fish properly. "I'm going to be the hunter tomorrow," he crows. He talks about all the big giant fish he hopes to see, now that he has the Death Spear. (I don't like "Hawaiian sling," because it sounds like a drink with mint leaves in it.) Later, as Rupert babbles on and on to the tribe about the spear, Rob turns to Amber and mutters, "I'm gonna be able to handle anything after this, my patience is so good." And I like the way he swats her on the arm with his buff when he makes his remark -- it seems very genuinely affectionate. Amber yaps that it's a great day for her, in part because, of course, they're getting even more rice. Around the fire, the team is chitchatting, and Rob makes some comment about people having gas, and Amber slaps him on the arm. He points the "abuse" out to Jenna, arguing that this would be grounds for Amber to be thrown out of the game. Hee. "If Rob and Amber are not playing kissy-face, playing sucky-kissy-face yet, they are gonna be soon," Rupert says. I really didn't need to hear Rupert say "sucky-kissy-face" in my lifetime, but thanks. We watch Rob and Amber flirt around the fire. Rupert describes walking up to them in the night and seeing them looking guilty, and he's just sure "something's going on." Good guess, genius, from all the sweating and panting. Can't get anything past Rupert.
Rob offers Amber a walk later, and she says okay, and then she interviews about how originally, she was just trying to play Rob, but now she has "feelings." Well, those are always bad news. That's why I don't have any. In night-vision, they cuddle. In his interview that led to such a greasy-looking promo, Rob tells us that Amber is "slammin'." Incidentally, while this episode was on, I was actually on the phone with Sars on the Survivor version of the Not!Line, and we discussed the fact that both of us are troubled by the fact that we want to like Rob, and then he says something like "slammin'," and we can't. He does have the decency to call her "sweet" before returning to "beautiful," and then swinging back for "funny" and "great personality." Again, I am reminded of my resentment when hot people try to butt in on the "funny" and "great personality" action. Shut up with that. "Her ass is smokin', too," he says, quite clearly for effect. Sometimes I think he's funny on purpose, and those are the times when I like him. Also, he's at least growing an annoying beard to complement the Sleazestache, which is a lot better than when the Sleazestache goes solo.
