Peachy calls Brandon, Ethan, Lex Loser, and Tom back to the barrel and tells them they'll have fifteen seconds now to memorize nine different items. Back at their barrels, they are allotted one minute to find as many of the items as they can. As the challenge begins, Peachy advises them that they can run back and forth as they acquire items, or stuff the items in their pockets -- "whatever works." As they collect items, Peachy exclaims things like, "For immunity, guys, pick it up!" and "You better hustle, Brandon!" and "If you've got 'em, get it in!" and "Get it in the barrel!" I'd be so annoyed. Brandon finds six items; Lex Loser has only five. Big Tom returns with seven items, but one of them is wrong, so he only gets credit for six, which ties him with Brandon. It's all a moot point, anyway, because Ethan finishes with a big eight. He wins, but doesn't look too happy about it. Maybe because he just realized he's painted a big target on his back by winning two consecutive challenges. And he has to wear the dog collar.
Day 24 finds us (where else?) at the Mofo Maji camp. Lex Loser tells us in a confessional that they've had three interesting days considering the "mystery vote." He tells us he gave himself the goal of identifying the culprit within three days. He says he's put two and two together, gathered evidence, and observed things, and that "it became really evident that [his] worst fears -- more likely than not -- were true." He doesn't say that in putting two and two together he came up with three. He's Lex Losing It, if you ask me. ["Assuming he ever had it to lose, which I don't; he's always looked unbalanced to me." -- Wing Chun] We see Lex Loser tell Tom that he had a morning shift with Brandon, who heard Kelly tell Frank and Teresa something about a "free agent." Lex tells Tom there's no doubt in his mind that Kelly is "turning." Tom asks, "That she's the rat?" In a confessional, Tom tells us that they're "shooting a harpoon shot that it's Kelly." He says it's hard to turn against a member of his own tribe, and that he likes "little Kelly," but that what small amount of evidence they have points to her. Lex Loser reveals to Tom that he approached Brandon to replace Kelly in their alliance. Lex assured him, "You will be the fifth from the top." Oooh -- I'm sure Brandon was really excited about that. Lex Loser talks about his gut again, and how it trusts Brandon. He jabs at his stomach and says, "You know my gut is good." Okay, we concede that his gut must be good, but for what? Then Tom agrees that, so far, Lex Loser's gut has been "pretty good." But in a confessional, Tom reveals he's not sold on Lex Loser's plan. He says he didn't get to "interrogate" Kelly personally to make sure "she's that rat," and that he'll feel like hell if they've kicked off one of their own based purely on Lex's "gut." Lex and Tom count out their allies: themselves, Ethan, Kimj, and Brandon. Lex counts on Tom's fingers, which is very odd. ["Maybe, given all the camouflaging tattoos, he finds it hard to locate his own fingers." -- Wing Chun] Lex concludes, "I say we cut Kelly off tonight." He says it all fits together, so they have to take her out. Tom tells us that if Lex Loser is wrong, they'll have done Kelly and themselves an injustice. We see Tom ask Lex Loser again if he's sure, and Lex Loser insists that he is. A baby monkey climbs a tree. Aw, baby monkeys.
