Well, let's find out, shall we? Before the losing team arrives back home, we're treated to a shot of the tribe's firepit, which has expanded somewhat since we last left it to now consist of the original firepit and then all the dry wood stuff the tribe put like half an inch away from it and thought that was a good idea. Yes, shockingly, the chests and wood canopy are now on fire, and from the looks of it, the shelter a few feet away soon will be, too. Just unbelievable stupidity. Oh, and not only did they put those chests around the fire, but they also had all of their important necessary items inside those chests, so those are ruined, too! By the time the losers return, it's been raining for a while and the fire is luckily extinguished. So the shelter basically survives, although part of the tarp roof has been burned away. The firepit area is just a pile of gray ash with pieces of machete and pots in it. Many "oh my gods" are exclaimed by the group, because what else is there to say? I mean, you don't want to sound like a total moron and say something like "how did that happen?" like Brenda does, for example.
Dan is rather impressed with the incredible heat the fire must have produced, pointed out that one of their glass water bottles melted. I'll bet his Mafia arsons are going to be started with some Nicaraguan treasure chests from now on! Dan interviews that they also had food left over from the merge feast (like that flour everyone was mad at NaOnka for stealing. In retrospect, if she had kept half the flour away from the camp, they would have still had that... ) in the chests, so that's gone too. He says they only have a cup of rice a day to eat now and he doesn't know how they'll do it. He's more helpful and optimistic around camp though, saying the melted parts of the tarp aren't so bad and there's still enough left of it to protect them from the rain.
So while the losers are crying and cleaning up, the winners are enjoying their nasty Survivor pizza, which is just as nasty as ever. They eat for a while, and then the talk turns inevitably to the game. "Who do y'all think's running the show?" Chase asks. Jud says he doesn't know after last night's vote and thinks they should talk it over and get a "consensus" of how everyone is feeling. Jane and Chase exchange glances while NaOnka actually does something, pulling Jud aside to talk to him. The other Kelly finds this odd, since NaOnka and Jud hate each other. She can't think of a reason why they'd want to talk to each other out of her earshot. Because she's invisible. And dumb. Even dumber than Chase, who shrugs and says that's just what NaOnka is like and what she does. "On a volcano!" the other Kelly giggles. Before she can get some idea of the plottage going on behind her, Chase distracts her by observing that she doesn't talk much. "I know, it's kinda funny, huh?" "Weird," Chase nods. Hey, you know what's even weirder than that? Casting someone who doesn't talk much on a reality show based heavily on social interactions.
