Probst asks Ace if this surprises him. "Not particularly," he says, attempting to get his fake accent back to charm Probst. He says he and Paloma definitely rub each other the wrong way. Yeah, well, she might be your only chance not to get picked off by the onion alliance, so you might want to get over it. Probst asks Kelly if Ace is an asset to the tribe. Kelly's ears prounced at the end of Probst's question, so she didn't hear "-et to the tribe." At least, that's my explanation for why she says Ace is an asset because he's "almost condescending in a way." That's because the only other explanation: Kelly doesn't know what "asset" means. Probst tries to help out, asking her how being condescending is a good thing and hoping Kelly will try to use context clues to figure out what asset means. She doesn't. While everyone else on the tribe (as well as, probably, Probst) tries not to laugh, Kelly keeps on going, saying that being condescending is not a good thing because sometimes Ace tells them they should get water instead of make rice.
Probst asks Ace if hearing two people say negative things about him is worrisome. "Of course," Ace says. Paloma points out that Ace didn't bring his bag with him, so he can't be too worried. "There's nothing I really wanted to take from camp," Ace says, with this amazing sneering smile on his face that's just barely covering his rage. Probst asks a stupid question about if Ace and Paloma could have been siblings in another life. Uh, no. You see, siblings bicker but underneath that they love each other. Ace and Paloma hate each other. "Maybe. In another world. A thousand years from now. When I'm DEAD," Paloma says. Probst is shocked at her level of bitterness and can only say "wow." With that, it's time to vote.
Paloma votes for Ace. Ace votes for Paloma, saying this is for the strength of the tribe and "best of luck." He can't really mean that, but I think it was decent of him to say it. I have a feeling he didn't know how much Paloma hated him before Tribal. Probably because he loves himself so much that he can't conceive of anyone else not feeling the same way.
