Colleen tells us that Sean is very intelligent and that "he's always going." We then randomly see Sean complaining to Colleen about "unambitious, good-looking guys who have absolutely no personality that still get a lot of girls," so I'm guessing he thinks he falls into the category of ambitious, bad-looking men who get no girls? Rudy has his head in his hands as he listens to this babble. Greg tells us, "Rich is clever and, uh, I mean we'll start being honest now. I think Rich thinks he's very clever. He is relatively sharp and, uh, he has a lot of things going on in his mind that he, uh, selectively decides, uh, what he will share and with whom. Rich is playing a big game, which is very fun, so he's awfully entertaining," and I love it when the castaways pretend they're outside psychological observers instead of willing participants in this mess. As the women join together to "beef up" the shelter's supports, Kelly says, "Bam! Shingles break. The whole room comes crashing down. Felt like such an idiot." Sue says, "Yeah! It's the same as it is back home, ladies, here in the jungle. The women are doing all the work and the guys are just hangin' out and B.S.-ing ya." Gervase teaches a card game to Richard, who lounges like he's a Roman emperor expecting Gervase to start dropping grapes into his mouth. There's some weird flirty exchange in which they mutually eye a conch of some sort and Rich says, "Isn't that beautiful. Don't lie. It looks like mucous, doesn't it?" Colleen tells us that men and women relate differently: Women compete while men can "sit down and talk for hours and walk away friends." Debatability of this statement aside, had Gervase made this comment last week, Joel would have just been crucified for it. Richard tells us that, "Gervase was great. I beat the hell out of him in a number of games that I've never played before. And he's, uh, he's good at cards. I think he could have been letting me win. Who knows? He could be playing the odds too." Gervase the Almighty Horn-Tooter tells us he's a "charmer" and a "smooth talker" and we then cut to a scene where he says, "Lookin' real good, Richard, really good." Richard says, "Can you tell I'm losin?" and looks down at his rolls. When Gervase agrees, he says, "Makes me happy. 'Cause I can't tell." Greg then shows up at camp with a sea urchin, which makes Rich happy because they're "great for bait but the insides is [sic ] just nothing but guts." With Richard, the outsides are nothing but gut. He then tells us that Greg's failure makes Richard stronger and that Greg is "pretty cocky," and, well, isn't that just the pot calling the kettle cocky.
