And now, it's time for dancing! Jeff explains that there will be three criteria for judging: appearance, authenticity, and spirit. ("Yes, yes, yes we do! We've can meke, how 'bout you?") Jeff says that this last will come down to whether you "embrace the dance." Why thank you, Jon Lovitz character that never was. Jeff says that the judges are Fijian dance experts, which actually seems a little excessive. It's like asking me to sing "Happy Birthday" and having me judged by the ghost of Jeff Buckley. Anyway, the judges determine the winner, and the winner gets a feast. Chicken, pork, seafood, entertainment. And the right to send someone to Exile Island who will come back in time for the immunity challenge. Jeff ascertains that Yau Man is the non-participator.
Moto is up first. Their dance is constructed with Earl at the front and the other four dancers in two pairs facing each other. Earl dances with considerable precision for an untrained guy. He also totally commits and sells the warrior persona. When Michelle and Stacy come forward in a pair, they manage to stay with the beat. Boo and Cassandra do the same. If there's one thing that can be said for this dance, it's that you do get a sense that they know where the beat is. Even Boo, who isn't a strong dancer, seems to be able to find the "one" in "one, two, three, four." Everyone applauds.
Next up: Ravu. Their dance, on the other hand, doesn't really have a leader. It starts with Mookie and Edgardo dancing in a pair, then it's like "Dreamz" and Alex are doing something, and then the whole thing falls apart. They don't seem sure what's going on, they're all standing around watching each other, it's not very organized, and Lisi seems to have no clue where the rest of the group is. If you got six bored seventh-graders together and gave them half an hour to think up a dance routine, you might get something about as well executed as what Ravu does here. "Dreamz" throws in a back flip at the end (thanks, cheerleader!), but for the most part, it totally sucks, and it's no contest. Moto looks around like, "Dude, we'd better not lose to that shit."
The judges deliberate. They announce that Moto was great, and Ravu sucked, and everything else is extraneous detail. They particularly praise Earl and how strong his dancing was, and they say that the dance was "organized." Ravu, on the other hand, was out of rhythm and wasn't with the music and...did I say "sucked" already? I did? Okay. So Moto celebrates victory. And Ravu loses again. Moto sends Lisi to Exile Island, on the theory that she already has the clues. She is picked up and whisked away, the better to go even further into the land of bazoo than she already has. Ravu goes home.
