Sunrise. Day 38. Majestic music. This is the day I hate the most, because Jeff is coming, and he is bringing news that today is the day we do the March of the Dead Survivors. He comes up on the shore and tells them that he's sure they remember the story of Roy Mata. He reminds them about the burial on the taboo island, and then breaks the news that said taboo island is the one they've been staring at just across the way. It's considered the most sacred place in Vanuatu, and that's where they'll go over and look at all the torches from those they've left behind, giving the opportunity to fill even more time with even more clips. Because that's what a sacred place is for, really -- killing time between commercials. After recalling the people they didn't like and, in many cases, barely remember, they'll go to Roy Mata's burial site and "make an offering." Wow, and they're supposed to come up with "something of value." They're really going to have to crack open their best paint and coconuts for this. Twila tells us that the day will be both happy and sad. Thanks for clearing that up, Twila.
The group paddles over toward the Island of Sacred Camera Setups. When they get there, they walk up the beach and head for the first torch. Brook. Remember Brook? Yeah, me neither. And nobody has anything to say about him at all, literally. They're like, "Oh, Brook. That was a guy, right? What's up with that? That's a chick's name." But that doesn't stop Brook from bragging in his little interview about his incredibly demanding...three-day experience.
Twila calls Dolly "very personable," and compliments her lovely eyes. Dolly reflects on her indecisiveness and how it kicked her ass. Poor Dolly. I think she feels sheepish.
John P. says that the experience will change the way he looks at things. Because now, he'll be looking at them from his seat at the Really Really Big Table Of Slightly Famous People In L.A. That You Totally Recognize From Something But You Can't Figure Out What It Is But It Might Be Elimidate. In the first of several extremely funny snark-ass edits in the Dead Survivor sequence, John P.'s comments about appreciating other people "emotionally" are played over footage of his incredibly uncomfortable attempts to navigate the hugging challenge without hugging any other boys. That edit cannot be an accident, and it was as funny as all hell.
