Conscience Dog then tells us that Kel overheard the whole thing and came back down from wherever he was, in order to confront the others. We see Kel march straight into the tent and squat in front of Jerri. This whole exchange is just weird. Kel seems a little smug; Jerri is completely rude -- it's impossible to tell what really happened, and it pisses me off. Kel says he was just chewing on grass. Jerri questions why he pulled the grass out of his pocket, and Tina wants to know how he knew it wasn't poisonous. Whether or not he did smuggle the beef jerky (or jerked the beef, as the New York Post has accused), I have no idea why he allows himself to suffer this inquisition at the hands of Jerri and flying pretties. They don't even listen to his apology, and Jerri grins and snickers through the whole thing. Keith earnestly thanks Kel for coming to them and explaining; Jerri just continues her snarking. Kel says he thinks the accusation was comical, and then Jerri says she thinks it was comical, and they go back and forth awhile over who can say "it's comical" last. I then lose all respect for Kel when he offers Jerri a razor for any reason other than to slit her throat. He says he's been meaning to give the girls one of his three razors so that they can shave with it. Jerri tells us that this as an admission of guilt, but she still takes him up on the offer. The camera then scans up Jerri's clean-shaven legs. Kel leaves, and Maralyn tells the camera that their actions were "totally inappropriate. It was wrong. Nobody had any right to go into Kel's bag." She approaches Jerri and says it "would be very big of us to apologize"; Jerri refuses. So Peeved Dog leaves and tells the camera, "Gee whiz. Four days. Things are really heating up at our encampment." And I do like anyone who uses the expression "gee whiz."
Alicia has lots of outfits. She checks the mail (they don't call it "treemail" anymore) and finds a clue that includes the words, "Rubba dub dub / Thank God for the grub." So I guess they're not thanking Michael anymore. There's a big exchange over the grub-eating. Kimmi announces that she's a vegetarian: "I don't eat land-dwelling animals. I'm not eating amphibian; I'm not eating reptile; I'm not eating mammal; I'm not eating fowl." Alicia tells us that Kimmi isn't going to compromise her morals, but that "coming into a game like this, you can't come in with a whole list of things you're not gonna do, you're not gonna eat, because you're not helping your tribe -- you're not helping your team morale." But it does seem to me that this is Kimmi's choice; it's Kucha's choice as to whether or not they'll vote her off as a result. Michael says that if Rodger could jump off a cliff and swim, Kimmi should be able to do this. Kimmi does seem really torn, and far more earnest than Amaya did in the Real World/Road Rules Challenge episode where she refused to bob for pig's feet because it wasn't kosher, even though she'd eaten a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit for breakfast that morning and shrimp at dinner the night before. Kimmi tells us she knows she's disappointing the others, and that she now has no reason not to be voted off.
