We finally get some never-before-seen and unbelievable clips on Day 9. Actually, they'd be unbelievable if they applied to anyone besides Mike, who is obsessing over fish he caught. He points out to his tribe mates what he thinks are fish hearts, kidneys, and pancreas. He then points at something else and says, "I don't know what this stuff is, but it was just in one of 'em." Oh. Well, ew. We then see Mike bragging that he ate the "fish eggs, [he] ate the stomach, and [he] ate the heart, the liver, and uh, [he] think[s] the pancreas." Evidently, he eats them raw. I'd forgotten, in my empathy over the falling-into-the-fire / mashed potato microwave burn parallel, what a sicko Mike is. In any case, the other Kuchas are disgusted and think he's crazy. Nick thinks it's silly for Mike to eat eyeballs, which he says "have no nutritional value as far as [he] know[s]." Mike tells us the only fish part they haven't yet eaten is "the actual outer core of the head." In a confessional, Kimmi insists that Mike is "the only one that ate eyeballs."
We then learn that there was dissension in the Kucha camp because Mike took out the boat one morning without including Jeff. Jeff tells us that "it wasn't right" and that he "wanted to go up on him right then and there." But instead of making a fuss, he decides to use this against Mike in order to "garnish" respect from the tribe. Will he be using parsley or perhaps a lovely radish flower? Kimmi cutely tells Jeff that she'll take him fishing later. Jeff bitches about Mike until he gets Alicia all riled up. She says, "That cannot happen," and insists she'll say something to Mike. Jeff then tells us that Alicia decided they'd vote Mike out and that, "There it is, on a silver platter. Conflict. I'm in the middle of it, but it doesn't look like I'm in the middle of it. That's the way I hoped things would play out." Where this fits into the context of the game, we'll never know.
You know, they probably dreamed up this "special" clips show just for another excuse to show Babe: Pork in the Outback again. I won't go into it. Meanwhile at Ogakor, they may not have Babe, but they do have -- wait for it -- some new clips! At Tina's insistence, the tribe plays a game to combat their foul moods. I bet she learned this while chaperoning the bus rides to her kids' away soccer games. I bet she bakes brownies, too. Mmmm, brownies. Oh right, recap. Tina suggests that they each say something nice about each other. Keith tells Jerri he likes her curly hair, and that he always wished he had curly hair. She says she always wished her hair was straight and then they examine their split ends together. I'm so bored right now I'm fictionalizing the recap. What really happens is that Keith mumbles for a while about how they've had their differences but that "in a different place in a different time, it'd be much different." Tina congratulates Keith for being honest. Then Jerri talks about herself for a while and says she's a "little bit of a control freak." She then apologizes to Keith for hurting his feelings and sounds pretty sincere in doing so. She tells us in a confessional that she felt relief after apologizing, and Keith tells us that Jerri's apology was "just enormous" and that the paella pan -- I mean slate -- has been wiped clean. Jerri tells Keith she wants to taste his cooking some day and then Keith tells her that he'll shove it down her throat. Lovely, these people. Ogakor talks about how much better they feel and Lamber says, "I like this game!" actually managing to evoke a semblance of human emotion.
