Apparently, the questions are getting easier, or the remaining competitors are getting smarter, because they all know that the Nile, and not the Amazon, is the longest river in the world. Christy takes a swipe at HeiDDi, leaving her with once chance remaining. Deena and HeiDDi then gang up on Christy, taking her out of the game. Jenna then takes Deena out of the game, causing Peachy to comment on "Deena's threat coming into play." Jenna corrects him that it's not because she's a threat, but because she already had immunity once and should "share the necklace."
We're down to just Jenna and HeiDDi, a scenario I think we'd all chew our right feet off to avoid seeing in the final episode. Because Jenna has only one strike against her, if she answers correctly, the game is over. They are asked whether a Brazilian word means "fish," "snake," "ritual," or "rainfall." Both women answer "fish," and so Jenna is proclaimed the winner while HeiDDi stands by, bucktoothed and mute. No one is particularly excited, since Jenna did nothing to win this challenge except answer the least number of questions correctly. Still, Peachy congratulates her on a "well-earned, well-played" victory, and with Jenna safe and everyone else vulnerable, the tribe heads back to camp wearing their pensive, post-challenge facial expressions.
It's now Day 24, and Matthew narrows his eyes and stares at something. He then whips out his machete and beings stomping around camp with it. Suddenly, he's squatting in front of a pair of shoes attempting to saw them in half. As he continues chopping, he explains that he destroyed them one night by leaving them too close to the fire, and now they're impossible to wear. He whispers that his objective for the afternoon is to "MacGyver these into a pair of sandals," and this conversation would seem almost normal if he wasn't whispering for no obvious reason. Is it a secret that he's hacking his shoes in half? Would he rather the other members of the tribe think he has no reason at all for destroying his shoes? In any case, Matthew assures us that he'll be a much happier person when his shoes are sawed in half. He'll also be a much happier person when the other members of the tribe are sawed in half, but he doesn't say that aloud. After watching him perplexedly, Christy tells us in an interview that she'll vote him off because she doesn't know what he's thinking. He gives her the creeps, and she doesn't know how much longer she can stand to be around him. Sadly, she does not offer a repeat performance of the "creepy" comments she expressed earlier.
