Interestingly, at the same time, Becky is telling Yul that she's a little uncomfortable about Jonathan as well. Yul reminds us that his alliance is supposed to be Jonathan, Becky, Candice, and Sundra, but that he's hearing all this noise from the women about not trusting Jonathan. He adds that the suspicion is kind of making him wonder, because if enough people have doubts about a person, maybe there's something to it. While I always think everyone needs to play his own game, I think it's smart to have enough humility to think to yourself, "If everyone else thinks the same thing, is it possible that I'm wrong, instead of all of them?" Cao Boi pulls Yul aside to tell him that they have the six votes necessary for Plan Voodoo: "We're brothers. We've got to remember that." I do not like that. I smell in that remark the implication that because Cao Boi is Vietnamese and Yul is Korean, they're "brothers," which doesn't sound right to me. The rest of the team tells Cao Boi that they're on board for Plan Voodoo -- well, except Jonathan and Candice, obviously. Ozzy interviews that he's not sure whether the plan is a good idea, and right now, there's just a lot of "chaos in camp." In an interview, Yul says that he's a little bummed, because he'd kind of like to play with "honesty and integrity" (bleeech), and he's finding that to be just about impossible to do. You can tell he doesn't watch the show, or he wouldn't be so surprised. I keep expecting to see a little devil-Probst on one of Yul's shoulders and an angel-Probst on the other. And then I get creeped out at the idea of Probst in a red unitard, and I have to stop thinking about that.
Cao Boi and Flicka are lying around, and he's telling her that Yul, Becky, and Sundra are all on board for Plan Voodoo. "Why are they all in there whispering together, then?" Flicka wonders, looking over at the shelter. Heh. "They're just discussing things," Cao Boi reassures her. And then Cao Boi quzzes Yul about whether he's ever had an ulcer, which is pretty funny. FEELING IT, YUL? I don't think I've ever seen the integrity battle give anyone an actual physical illness before. Jonathan tells us that he'd be "shocked" to be voted off, and that if he goes, he will have been seriously outplayed. I'd say so. And yes, to the many, many people who have written me to ask, I have noticed that he sounds just like Alan Alda.
Aitu tribal council. Jeff welcomes them. He mentions that Cao Boi has brought the idol, and he'd like to know why. Cao Boi argues that they brought it because they don't have immunity anymore -- they're voting somebody out, after all. Yul looks embarrassed by crazy Uncle Cao Boi. Jeff doesn't understand what Cao Boi wants to do with the idol now that he has it here, and Cao Boi says "he'll be another member." And he plunks the idol on the ground. Sigh. I'm so weary from watching attention-seeking behavior. Jeff kind of doesn't understand why they keep bringing the idol to the wrong things. He asks Ozzy what the story is. Ozzy says, as diplomatically as he can, that for whatever reason, Cao Boi wants to bring the thing everywhere they go. Nobody else cares, but why argue? He says it nicer, though.
