At this moment, Parvati wanders nearby, so Jenny hops right up and goes to talk to her. I just love how Jenny did this -- you might as well just take your damn chances, because if you sit there and do nothing, you're going to give up a perfectly good chance to be in the majority within your tribe, and instead, you're going to get picked off. I mean, if you actually were to get all five women, you could make that into a viable alliance that could last past the merge, you know? When you have five -- or even four -- people who can genuinely decide to stick together for a while, you don't want to let that just fizzle out because you're afraid to lift your head. As Jenny runs off toward Parvati, Cristina tells Stephannie that she just doesn't see Parvati making a break from the guys. And honestly, I don't either, at this point. Meanwhile, Jenny says to Parvati, "We're switching the game up." "What's going on?" Parvati whispers. "We're going to vote J.P. out," Jenny tells her. Now, I don't know if Jenny did this on purpose, but I think the strategy of treating this as a foregone conclusion -- J.P. is being voted out -- is very smart, even though Jenny still needs a vote to make this happen. Even if Parvati intellectually (ha!) knows that Jenny needs a vote, Jenny begins to psychologically treat the situation as what's happening, and Parvati can get on board or not. Predictably, Parvati is all, "I don't know if that's a good idea." "We have to play our numbers," Jenny tells her. She explains how Stephannie has told them her "weak link" remark earlier was only a moment of weakness. Ultimately, Jenny tells Parvati, "It's all on you." Just as we all knew she would be, Parvati is reluctant. "I just don't know if that's in our best interest," Parvati comes back, and it's not clear to me who "our" refers to in that statement, or whom she thinks Jenny will believe it refers to. Parvati agrees to think about it. When Jenny comes back to Cristina and Stephannie, Cristina immediately says, "No, huh?" Jenny insists that Parvati is only "hesitant." Just then, as it happens, Brad is coming up the beach toward the women, and Cristina (I believe) says that she thinks Brad might "fall for it," by which I think she means something more like "go for it."
Brad comes over and sits down with this group of women. "I need you, babe," Stephannie says, and she pitifully puts her head on his shoulder. "We need you," Cristina agrees. "Why? What's up?" Brad asks in Spanish, with a smile. Cristina tells him that they want to get rid of J.P. "Wow," Brad says with a little smile. In an interview, Jenny says that she doesn't entirely trust Brad, but that she trusts him partly. And either way, she hopes he'll act "for the good of our tribe, and not just for himself." She had me until the end.
