Sure enough: "I'll be able to do great at this," Rupert says predictably at the Heroes camp while Amanda and Candice look on, unamused. J.T., the only person left in the game who has done this challenge before, gently says he doesn't think so, since the bigger you are, the harder it is. J.T. is happy to take the weakest spot if Rupert is "too proud" to take it with his giant oaf feet, broken toe, and fatness. Rupert laughs with his tongue sticking out, which I only thought people did in "For Better or For Worse" comics. He then interviews that he believes he's the strongest person left in the entire game, but he'll "let" his tribe put him down as the weakest if that's what they want. J.T. says he thinks the women will be the strongest at this challenge. The women say nothing. Rupert contributes to the conversation by saying he's hoping to see all five of them still standing when they win.
The tribes arrive. The Heroes men are upset to see that Douche is gone, and Probst asks Rupert how he feels about this because he knows that Rupert can't keep his mouth shut. Indeed, Rupert says the women's alliance on the Villains tribe looks "very strong" and "it's kinda obvious." J.T. agrees, saying he was sure it would be Douche or Li'l Russell leaving last night. God, they are dumb. Even if there was a women's alliance on the Villains tribe, it's stupid to declare what you think is going on at the other tribe because then they can plan their game accordingly, which is exactly what they've been doing and probably part of the reason why Li'l Russell wanted Douche out. So basically, their fear of a women's alliance contributed to another man leaving the game. Probst explains the challenge: each contestant will face off against a contestant on the other tribe according to how they ranked themselves. The first to fall loses, and the tribe of the contestant left standing wins a point. First tribe to get three points wins. "It's ours for the taking," J.T. mutters. Oh, but then Probst tells them the reward: dinner from Sizzler [being subbed here for some other extremely blatant and annoying product placement], which apparently has a branch in freaking Samoa. That makes me very sad, but it makes the contestants very happy, and Probst says they'll be getting steak, shrimp, and a loaded baked potato. "You will not be able to eat it all," Probst says. Dude, they can never eat all of the rewards. How is this different? With that, Probst tells Li'l Russell to sit out and we see how the tribes ranked each other: 1. Danielle vs. Candice, 2. Courtney vs. Amanda, 3. Parvati vs. J.T, 4. Jerri vs. Colby, and 5. Sandra vs. Rupert. Ooooooh, it's the battle of the seasons in the 2, 4, and 5 spots! This isn't lost on Jerri, who peers around the corner to give Colby a sweet "hi, Colby." "Hi, Jerri," he sighs. Rupert tells Sandra he loves her. Sandra rolls her eyes.
