We then visit Kel in the canoe. He tells us that the "food strategy" at this point is rice, and that he doesn't think it will last longer than ten days. Keith, who has been missing his usual visits from Ms. Clairol over the past four days, says, "Our plan for getting food is, uh, we don't have a good plan, actually." We then see Keith lying face down in a foot of water looking around for fish. He seems surprised that they're not finding any, even though the Ogacorps are all within a five-foot space and are flopping around and splashing each other, which I'm sure brings those fish running. Er, swimming. Mitchell tells us that it's wasted energy to fish, since obviously there are none; then the camera shows us lots and lots of fish. Back to Kel, who tells us he has some hooks from the crate they salvaged, but no fishing line, so he has to use twine, which he braids and to which he ties a rock so that it doesn't float. Colby tells us that "Kel's done a little bit of fishing which just...I mean, come on, the guy couldn't fish a rubber ducky out of a bathtub." Colby then criticizes Kel's bait choices and the fishing line, claiming that he's "just going about it the wrong way." Colby chooses not to share with the others -- nor with us -- his knowledge of the right way. ["Where's Superpole 2000 when you need it?" -- Wing Chun] We see lots of shots of an earnest Kel, and he tells us in an interview that he's been "trying and trying," and that he'll keep on trying until he finds a method that works. Jerri says she hopes more than anyone that they'll have a "seafood buffet," but that Kel is "not a fisherman, obviously," and that "he should keep his day job." Jerri should get rid of her day job since no one will ever want to work with her again after she's proven to be such a bitch, but then, she's an actress, so maybe they're used to that kind of crap in Hollywood.
At Kucha, Alicia tells Jeff "this is big"; they check the mail and find the reward challenge. Although I'm not sure why it's "big" since they haven't read the clue yet. Usually I spare the reader and myself the annoyance of repeating the clue, but for the sake of the recap, I will. The clue reads, "A leap of faith is not for the skilled / Just jump off the edge and try not to get killed. / Like Sundance and Butch you'll jump from a cliff. / Count on your friends while you're set adrift," which seems fairly self-explanatory. Kucha takes about five minutes to figure out the clue involves jumping off something, and then another five minutes debating what they might be jumping into, as if the answer might be a pyramid of bricks or a pile of Twinkies. Rodger determines that they'll be jumping off a cliff "into some water," and makes a funny face expressing his concern. He then tells us in an interview that "water is not [his] finest point," but that "if everyone else is doing it, so can I." Jeff says he's "iffy" about it, but I think Jeff's just iffy in general. Rodger tells us that he learned to swim just for Survivor, which is what Gervase did as well, and I really can't figure out why they didn't learn to swim better while they were making the effort. ["And what the hell adult doesn't know how to swim?!" -- Wing Chun] As much as I hate to criticize Rodger for anything at all, it's a point that needs to be made. Rodger takes this time also to tell us that he never liked the ferris wheel "at the fairs," either, and I wish he'd just chosen to stay home contentedly on his farm and read scripture in front of the fire with a grandchild on each knee and his wife cooking up strawberry shortcake, and then I get to wondering why he's there in the first place, and come to some sad-sack conclusion about him losing his farm or needing a kidney for little Bobbie Sue or something like that and get myself all worked up for absolutely no reason.
