As Peachy retrieves the immunity necklace from Vecepia, he snarks, "Boy! You even smell good. That's a first!" Vecepia laughs, but clearly doesn't think it's funny. Or else she's mentally chiding herself for forgetting to pray for deodorant. Peachy's "sorry to be the bearer of bad news" in revealing that she usually stinks.
The three assume their places on the logs, and from the very beginning Neleh owns this challenge. Vecepia is wobbly from the start, and Kathy looks like her back might be bothering her. Meanwhile, Neleh is just hanging out. She's got a lot of practice, because what else is there to do in Utah? Just kidding, people. I'm from New Jersey, so whatever I say should be taken very lightly. Peachy points out that "it should be a nice hot day, too," and Kathy snits that she knew Jeff would be there "bugging [them]" throughout the challenge. Hee. Peachy defends himself by claiming to be attending to the necessary task of "setting the stage." A montage of the serious-looking S3 is followed by a shot of waves right next to where they're positioned, and then Peachy is pleased to inform them that they've just reached an hour and a half, and to remind them that the day started at 3 AM. Neleh cheers. Vecepia and Kathy are sweaty and tired-looking, but Neleh is just thinking about all the crayons and kittens a million dollars can buy. Obviously answering a question from Peachy, Neleh says she has to win the challenge, because otherwise she's out of the game. Peachy asks whether she thinks the deal between Kathy and Vecepia will "hold strong," and Neleh says she thinks it will. Peachy then asks Vecepia whether -- if Neleh goes down first -- she and Kathy will just "end this" because of their deal. Vecepia says, "Yeah!" like there's no question to it. Neleh then smugly reveals that she's already selected who she'll take to the final two if she wins the challenge. Kathy says, "Aaah, yea, I think I got that one down," while Neleh grins. Peachy points out that Kathy, too, feels vulnerable, and she answers that Neleh's mad at her. Neleh immediately starts screaming that she's not mad at Kathy, and why should she be? She swears on her life that she's not angry, and says that they've come very far together and love each other; she insists that it's just a game.
