Anyway, Brady reacts to Chad's news with this interview: "Greeeat. The guy with the mechanical leg's gonna win for sure! He's nice, he's smart, he's quiet, and he's got the underdog thing going on. So we're screwed." Officially, that remark is pretty tacky, but unofficially, it's also pretty funny. Because it's kind of true, and if any of these guys were honest, they'd admit they had the same thought somewhere along the line. ["It's certainly what I thought about the New York City cop Ken in...Marquesas? Whichever season that was." -- Wing Chun] Brook tells us he thinks it's "inspirational," but that he'll still vote Chad off if necessary. Yeah. Thanks for that. We slide in extreme close-up, all the way up Chad's Inspirational Leg to Chad's smiling face.
Volcano! Yasur retrieves its treemail, and then there's some kind of dumb-ass group sing as they return to camp. If you can't sing from your belly, don't try to sing like Marines, is what I'm saying. The bad poetry on the clue says very little, although it does seem to suggest that fire will be available to the winning team, and Julie the "youth mentor" claims that they're "psyched up" for the challenge, although frankly, she looks utterly plagued by ennui. Leann chooses this moment to say in her interview that most people think women are weak, which...where does she live? Sheesh. I mean, I agree with her desire to "kick some butt" and all, but fortunately, I don't think most people think women are weak at this moment in history. At least, I like to think not.
