Moto, Day 20. Boo and Michelle are...I think they're going to receive treemail, but they encounter several folks in what I suppose are traditional Fijian garb, drumming. The locals, as it were, hand over a piece of treemail. It turns out that these folks are returning to camp with them, too, which makes Michelle very happy. I don't know. I think I would have asked if I was expected to feed them lunch before I got too happy. Boo reads to the tribe a message saying that today, they'll be learning a meke (pronounced "meh-kay" according to Jeff later, and "mee-kee" according to Boo now), which is a dance. The dancers who have come along will provide two hours of instruction. And then, Michelle finishes reading, the tribes will have a dance-off in front of three judges. The winners get a feast in the village where the competition will be held. In an interview, Stacy repeats what just happened, which is sort of her only air time all week. Moto has to sit out one person, and Yau Man immediately tells them that he should be out. He tells us in an interview that the's the most rhythm-free person of all time. "I can't keep the beat if my life depends on it," he says emphatically. But he can keep the turtle.
And now, we are watching the dancers teach the members of Moto the meke. Everybody seems to be getting into it, and Earl tells us that he's "got the moves." He says that he's been put out front, and that he's ready go to. "Boo's doing the whole...the white guy thing, but he hung in there and he's making a great effort, and...I think we'll be okay." Indeed, Boo's moves to call to mind Donald Trump during the commercial for Donald Trump's House Of Wings. He should have gone for Omeletteville.
We switch to Ravu. Alex voices over that being big and strong isn't necessarily the key to victory on this particular challenge. I think they're still waiting for the body-building challenge. "There's no way Yau Man and those [somethings] are going to beat us," he tells the group smugly. He sure does like to pick on Yau Man, considering that Yau Man has indeed done some good stuff in challenges, and once a guy kicks your ass a certain number of times, you're obligated by your own dignity to stick it. "It's just frustrating," Alex interviews. "Because we've lost twice to a bunch of girls and an old guy." And Boo. And Earl. And you're a sexist, ageist prick. But other than that, good try, Alex. As one of the dancers tries to train Lisi, she gets all defensive and "who cares anyway?" She then says in an interview that she doesn't really care about challenges. In fact, she says she doesn't take them seriously. She doesn't offer a lot of explanation of why, particularly, winning challenges isn't significant in her opinion, but she sort of rolls her eyes at the idea of caring who wins. The team applies black paint to their faces in stripes. Many of them look kind of cool, but Mookie looks like he's going as a kitty for Halloween. Lisi continues to clown as they get ready to go, and "Dreamz" tells us that he still doesn't like her: she made his time at Moto really unpleasant, and she "should be worried, because she's the weakest." He guarantees us that if the team loses, Lisi goes next.
