Kimj's video is first, and she covers her face in anticipation. On the tape, a young couple cling to each other and announce that they have both good news and bad news: it turns out they're still getting married, but that they miss her dearly. We learn that one of Kimj's daughters looks just like her, and that her grandson may or may not call her "Kimpy." Kimj's husband says it's tough surviving at home without Kimj; the family hopes that she's having a good time. Peachy wants to know if watching the tape made Kimj stronger or if it made her want to go home. She says that getting her family's encouragement at this point in the game gave her new strength. It's about time she got some. Strength, that is.
Teresa bawls before her tape is even shown. Her husband wants to know if she remembers them; he reminds her that they live in Jackson, Georgia. Her son has been "blocking off [his] calendar," and he misses her. He's also been praying for her. The boy looks annoyed when Teresa's daughter says exactly the same thing, and then Teresa's father wishes her happy birthday before they wave goodbye.
No one in Ethan's family has hair as funky as his. They've just finished eating dinner and his mother cracks herself up as she says they're having a little trouble getting it together. His father enjoys this "one-way conversation" because Ethan can't talk back. Ethan appears to have two cute older brothers with equally cute, possibly pregnant wives. The family also appears to have one fugly-ass art collection.
Big Tom's father and son sit together on a golf cart. Both of them look more like Tom's brothers -- it's like some skewed version of Everlasting Tuck, except instead of each remaining his own age, they all grow toward the middle. Goats jump on the golf cart, and Teresa cracks up. Little Tom's accent is as difficult to understand as Big Tom's is. He announces that he's been going to the beach, drinking beer, and playing golf -- the "same old stuff." He concludes, "Over and out, big guy. Git your man." Tom's wife pets a horse. She misses him, but says she's been "riding this old stud here since [she doesn't] have one at home." Other than that grotesque imagery, "everything is going fine." Tom waves at the television. No one has the heart to tell him it doesn't work that way. Kimj notices that Tom's family had no more control over the goats on their own farm than Tom did during the goat-wrangling challenge.
