Crystal's boyfriend Andre is on there with her daughter, Destiny. They say everything's going well at home and they miss her. Ken's next. His message is from his sister, Jenny. He gets all weepy as she tells him to do his best and never give up. Ken is embarrassed to cry, but says he misses his family and "it's been rough." Can you imagine if the message had been from his Wii instead? Then we would have seen a true emotional breakdown. Probst tells the other contestants they're allowed to crowd around and see each other's messages. Corinne does so, apparently wanting to see how her mutant tribemates live. Susie's up next. Her husband and son are on, and they miss her and how loud the house is when she's around. Amazingly enough, Corinne has loved ones. Her whole family -- mom, dad, sister, and brother -- are on this one, and they've chosen the odd staging location of a stair landing for their message. They're also passing a microphone around even though they're loud enough without it. Corinne cries. It would seem that she has feelings. Bob's next. He gets to see his wife, Peggy. She says she hopes Bob is doing well in the game, but more importantly that he's having a good time. She's just as bad at the strategy side of this game as her husband. "I'm the luckiest man in the world," Bob says. "Aw," Probst says insincerely. He's so jealous. So bitter. Matty gets to go next. He wants to hear from his girlfriend, of course, and she pops up with their dog. She says they're as "happy as can be" without him around, which is kind of mean. She says she loves him and they can't wait for him to get back. Matty cries. Sugar is last. She gets a message from her sister, Salt. Salt hangs out in a living room full of blurred-out photos, which is strange. She says Sugar has everyone's support, and especially their father's. How does she know? I hope after I die people don't go around making assumptions about how I'd feel about things, especially if those things concern my family members' participation in reality shows. Because I'm pretty sure I'd be against it. Maybe I'm just mad that they did this the week after Randy got booted. I really, really, REALLY wanted to see who his loved one was. I have a feeling his message would have just been a video of the urn holding his dog's ashes, sitting motionless on the table, saying nothing.
