Phillip and Corinne have a jungle meeting. Phillip says he wants an early alliance with her, Malcolm, and Andrea. He interviews that he wants to find people who are dominant, so he chooses Corinne and Andrea because they are take-charge types who are into strategy. Corinne says she's in and she quickly recruits Malcolm. Phillip tells Corinne and Andrea that he also wants Dawn, so they recruit her, and then Phillip gets Malcolm. Finally, Phillip goes up to Erik and basically says, "I have an alliance that's big enough to control the game, and I'd like you to join us but you need to trust me, or we'll vote you out. But I'm not in charge. I'm just a messenger." Erik shines him on and then interviews that he didn't like being told he had no choice but to join Phillip's alliance, and he thinks Phillip is crazy to boot. Hey, Erik learned a few things.
Reynold and Eddie are hard at work digging holes (?) and agree that they need to band together because, as the young males, they might be first on the chopping block. Reynold then recruits Allie, since they were paired up in the challenge and got along. They agree to a final two alliance and then agree to act like they're only casual friends at camp so it's not obvious. Keep that in mind. Reynold interviews that he knew the other guys would want to align with him (he did?) but he needed more people and he thinks Allie is just normal and while she's "not the cutest" (ouch), she's likable. Reynold really loves himself, especially for a dude named Reynold.
That night, Eddie and Hope stand in the shallows and talk about how beautiful the stars are, and then affirm their alliance. Eddie thinks he's on The Bachelor and says they have a connection. And then they agree that they're the two best-looking people there. Dear Attractive People Of the World: No one likes it when you talk about how attractive you are. This is also true of smart people, rich people (especially inherited wealth), or any other people who were genetically blessed. You didn't do anything to earn it, so you can certainly enjoy it, but don't lord it over the rest of us plebes. Thanks. They agree to join up with Reynold and Allie.
