Just Peachy's Clippings
At Sook Jai on Day 23, it's never-before-seen footage time! Except we saw some of it in the introductory segment, teasers and advertisements, but anyway. As the tribe struggles with the boat, Jake tells us in a confessional that he's convinced "the canoe weighs 2,321 pounds." He says one person alone can't move it, not to mention it's cracked and sinks as soon as it hits the water. He calls it the worst canoe he's seen in his life, and he's seen a few. Finally, Ken and Jake manage to get into the canoe, while Shii Devil unsuccessfully attempts to guide them into the surf. On shore, Erin and Penny watch and do the pee pee dance. Jake insists in a confessional that he's "pretty doggone good at canoeing," and his frustrations with their boat made him want to throw something. Still, he was willing to try again, convinced that he could do it on his own. Dramatic music swells as we see Jake -- this time guided by Ken -- attempting to set out in the canoe. A wave hits and knocks a flailing Ken over before Jake very slowly falls out of the back of the boat. On shore, a peeved Jake asks the others, "How many of you vote for burning the fucking canoe?" and then kicks his hat.
At Chuay Gahn on Day 14, Brian was convinced that there must have been a "reasonable explanation" why their boat floated away. I could give about a billion "reasonable explanation(s)" and they all include words like "stupid" and "foolish" and "dimwitted" and "because Mark Burnett picked these people from the pool of rejected The Gong Show applicants."
Meanwhile at Sook Jai, Robb spazzed out after being bitten by a sea creature. He threw a temper tantrum on the beach, and Shii Devil -- after doing a bang-on imitation -- urged him to be a mature person.
In the next immunity challenge, Clay hit Brian in the head with a raw fish, but the tribe still managed to "sort their way to victory." So Sook Jai headed off to Tribal Council, and Stompanie, looking very Sarah Jessica Parker-ish in a post-boot confessional, is still stuck on the whole difference-in-priorities thing. She's obviously not over the boot, and claims to have "busted [her] ass" getting water for the tribe. Stompanie insists that she wasn't in the game for the money, but to challenge herself and have an adventure. She says she did exactly that. Her hair looks much better wavy and down then in the Laura Ingalls braids.
