As it turns out, the reason they're all so successful at this challenge is because they're standing about two and a half feet from the target.
With the first round completed, Matthew, Alex, Butch, and Deena advance to the spear-throwing competition. Matthew is up first this time, and scores a near bull's-eye, causing Peachy to announce, "That's gonna be tough to beat!"
Apparently Deena has taken both comportment and spear-throwing lessons from HeiDDi -- she waggles her tongue and then totally whiffs. Jenna and Rob Base(ment) unenthusiastically clap, and Jenna congratulates her with, "You made it this far." Deena's not down with the hand-slappiness, and totally disses Alex's extended hand.
Butch is next, and scores in the green. It's not a particularly good shot, but it's good enough for now. Peachy concludes, "That'll work."
In order to make it to the finals, Alex has to be inside the green. He zips a sideways shot just inside the red, causing Jenna to bust out with a big "yeah, baby!" She then rises from her seat and shoulders her little purse, looking more like a sorority girl walking into the mall than a Survivor competitor.
Now comes the real challenge: the two men are actually not an arm's-length distance from the target. Instead, they take their shots from a tower. Matthew looks perplexed after scoring in the outer green. After all, he's an experienced bow-and-arrow shooter -- that's how he gets his victims. In the loser line-up, Rob Base(ment) tells Jenna, "This guy is a nincompoop!" Actually, we're supposed to think Rob Base(ment) tells Jenna this, but after repeated viewings, I think this was carefully edited in from a confessional. ["Also…'nincompoop'? What is this, the touring production of Mr. Belvedere?" -- Sars]
Alex bests Matthew by landing in the yellow and steals Davey Rockett's "booyah!" Everyone applauds as Peachy exclaims, "Alex is drinkin' coffee!" Matthew congratulates Alex about six and a half times, including with the requisite fistbop. Peachy points out that one of the best things about being in a coffee bar is "hangin' out with somebody," and Alex agrees with an "absolutely!" before immediately selecting Jenna. She and her little purse run over and hug Alex as Peachy dismisses the others back to camp. As Alex and Jenna embrace, Christy sneaks a wary slow-motion look at Matthew, while HeiDDi wonders how her breasts weren't picked to accompany Alex.
