The tribe returns to camp. Everyone once again congratulates Stephen on his impressive immunity win and then the former members of Jalapeño all head for the water to wash the sand off/continue to run this game. Stephen interviews that they expected to come into the merge and be picked off one by one, only to find themselves in total control of this game with individual members of Tempura coming to them. "We feel pretty good about it," Stephen says. I suppose they should, but this really says more about how much Tempura sucks than anything Jalapeño did right. While flies vie for the attention of an alligator, J.T. and Stephen tell Taj all about Debbie's promise to give them immunity and take third place and then how they turned around and told Erinn about it so she'd be on their side to vote Debbie out ASAP. Taj just laughs at how stupid everyone is and says she told her husband, Football Star Eddie George, that she had two brothers on her side keeping her safe in the game. J.T. interviews that he's happy to have Taj on their side, but he seems to consider him and Stephen to be the core alliance.
Taj disappears, and Stephen and J.T. discuss Debbie. Stephen now seems to think that getting rid of Debbie is not a good idea, then interviews that she's a strong worker and a positive presence around camp (except, you know, when she's throwing her nearest and dearest friend under the bus to save her own skin) and he thinks she really would give up the immunity and take third place so that J.T. and Stephen could win. Whoa, there, Stephen. Don't let the immunity win and all the congratulations for it go to your head. People around camp seem to like you, but not that much.
Oh, yuck. Douche decides to join J.T. and Stephen at the waterfront. Stephen interviews that one compelling reason to keep Debbie in the game is that it'd mean voting Douche out tonight. Douche talks strategy, saying that Taj definitely needs to go just in case she has the idol. J.T. agrees, and says their alliance of four has the numbers to take out Taj or whatever. He then interviews that it's "hard to deal with" Douche when he's constantly looking for reassurance that everything is going according to his plans because it means J.T. has to lie to him, and J.T. doesn't like lying. But at least he can admit he's doing it, which is more than I can say for Douche or Debbie. Douche then decides to "throw a reality check" on Stephen and J.T. that one of the three of them is going to win this season of Survivor. LOL, Douche having anything to do with reality checks. J.T. says he wants to get rid of the people he has to lie to as soon as possible. Don't tease me, J.T.
