We finally get our dose of night vision when we return to Camp Xhakum, where the loved ones and their loved ones are sitting around having various pleasant little fireside chats. Steph and Mrs. Judd talk about how much Steph digs Judd and how great Judd's been in the jungle. "It looks like you guys will really be the final four," Mrs. Judd observes smugly, imagining what kind of car she wants. Steph says, "Hopefully it works out." She adds, "Jersey would be proud." Eh. Not so very proud.
The moon hangs in the sky.
Judd talks to the rest of the group about how Danni still probably won't win immunity, even with her "clue," because she's usually not in the immunity games too much. Cindy agrees that Danni isn't generally strong either mentally or physically. "The one thing she's good at is shooting basketballs," Cindy says dismissively. Judd goes on to say that if Danni wins, they can always just get rid of Lydia. He talks about how glad he is that this is how things are going, and Mrs. Judd leans over and kisses his meaty arm. Bleh. I mean, I guess if you didn't like kissing the meaty arm, you wouldn't have married Judd, but...still.
The next morning, Day 32, we rejoin Camp Xhakum, still chock-full of family members. Mrs. Judd is not enjoying the atmosphere out in the jungle very much, what with the zillion bugs, and Mindy interviews that she didn't expect it to be so "barren." "They have nothing," she says. Mike agrees that it's "the real deal." As everybody sits around eating, the outcast group of Rafe, Lydia, and Danni returns to camp. Rafe explains that those returning didn't really think the family members would still be around, but they were, so everybody got to spend a little time together. Judd tries for romantic imagery and goes wildly off the rails when he first says that Mrs. Judd makes him "full" when he hasn't been eating, and then says, "It's like eating twenty-five White Castle cheeseburgers, man." That is so incredibly romantic. It's a good thing he didn't say that in front of her, or she would likely have fainted.
