Together again, Colby tells Tina he's learned to cherish "life's subtleties," but apparently not the subtleties of conversation. Tina calls Colby "pretty heavy." Colby and Tina then agree that the winner will take home the Barramundi flag. Colby's happy as long as he gets his Texas flag back. Tina says it's important for them to break down the camp as a tribute to their experiences there. As opposed to because it's not their property and that's the respectful thing to do. Can you tell I'm getting cranky? Too much repetitive recapping makes Joanna a cranky recapper. Tina tells us that the day they built the shelter was very tough and that taking it down says it was worth it "because look where I am." Colby then tells us that day was Tina's lowest point. Tina interjects, "I was not only physically low, I was mentally pretty low." She says she wondered how many more days she'd have to endure this, and that's funny because I'm wondering right now how many more ways I'll have to endure this. Seriously, I'm going to write Mark Burnett a letter. Because he'll listen to me. Colby tells us that it means so much to win the game because he has invested a great deal in playing -- physically, mentally, and emotionally. Tina then says that lately she's been wondering whether she went through all the hardships of Survivor to give "somebody like Elisabeth" the million dollars, or whether she deserves it for herself. In an interview, Colby tells us that he's played selfishly, but that he didn't choose Tina out of selfishness. He says if he was one hundred percent selfish he would have chosen to go into the finals with Bozo the Keith, because he's certain he could have won. Meanwhile, he doesn't believe he even has a fifty/fifty shot against Tina. And here I'll say I'm a little tired of people calling Colby dumb. He knew what he was getting into, and he made that choice for himself. You may not have done it, but you didn't get that far in the first place. I think it was kind of noble. Even if it was kind of stupid, and even if Tina sucks.
