Zhan Hu. Day 17. Misery. It turns out that all of a sudden, these people can't stand the feeling of constantly losing, even though...they lost voluntarily, like, literally yesterday. Peih-Gee announces that she feels gross and discouraged for the first time since she's been in the game. Jaime, for her part, says she's "sick of this place." Peih-Gee and Jaime reveal some of the cause for their bummed-ness when they bring up the fact that Frosti wouldn't look them in the eye at the immunity challenge, and Peih-Gee adds that Sherea didn't give her much of a reaction when she mentioned keeping up their old Zhan Hu alliance. Jaime interviews that she and Peih-Gee (and sort of Erik, though...he didn't know about it) are so eager to keep Frosti and Sherea around that they threw a challenge for them. Of course, they ultimately threw it for themselves, so the idea that they did anything for Frosti and Sherea is kind of bullshit. But in any event, there's no guarantee that they're going to be able to reconnect with their old tribal alliance. Of course, as one of the EEFPs pointed out this week, that only affects the advisability of their strategic challenge-throw if they're worse off because of it, which they're not. I don't believe Aaron was ever going to do anything except wait for a merge and go right back to his old bonds, and I don't think James will align with anyone except maybe Denise. That means that once this tribal split happened, if Sherea and Frosti were going to go over to become Fei Long partisans, the Erik/Peih-Gee/Jaime pod was fucked anyway. Winning that challenge and securing the ouster of (probably) Sherea wouldn't have helped them either. "We have to win immunity," Jaime eventually says to Erik and Peih-Gee, apparently giving up on last week's strategy after being stiff-armed by Frosti and Sherea at the challenge.
