Night falls. There is the moon. There is sunrise at Chapera. Boston Rob complains that he's "dyin'," because he didn't sleep the night before. He says that constantly rolling over and getting bitten was too much for him (stop sleeping next to Amber -- rimshot!), and that he's not doing it for another night. He interviews that last night was worse than any night he ever spent in Marquesas. He also says that, had he been in charge of shelter-building, he'd have done it quite differently. "I'm in construction; I know what I'm doin'," he says. Alicia, however, argues to the group and in her interview that she doesn't even want to touch the shelter to change it until they've got the fire thing (and thus the water thing) knocked. Boston Rob says that he's perfectly willing to work on the fire, but that he also feels that the shelter needs significant work. Amber agrees with Rob (duh) that the shelter is miserable, but Alicia interviews that all six of them are without water, while only Rob and Amber can't sleep, so she thinks the math on which is more pressing is fairly easy to do. Rob tells Alicia that they have already given a lot of effort to the fire, and she spits that he's been giving up, which he insists isn't the case. "We're physically exhausted," he says as she walks away from him. Because she has nothing to say, Alicia escapes the conversation by claiming the high road and accusing Rob of yelling, which he's...really not doing. He tells her that he's just not going to go through another night without sleep.
Big Tom, in an interview: "I never heard so much crybaby titty-suckin' in all my life." HA! I didn't know you could say "titty-suckin'" on TV. I guess you can, as long as it's not sexy. Thus? Big Tom, Obscenity Pioneer. He goes on to mock everyone for being so whiny about the conditions. "They're gonna hafta toughen up a li'l bit," he says. Alicia, meanwhile, quizzes Sue and finds that she thinks the shelter is fine, and that's all the information Alicia needs. She declares that the other people can sleep, so she's done worrying about the shelter. Boston Rob calmly interviews: "What can I say about Alicia? She's a drama queen. You want the facts, you come to Mariano, you get it as it is. She's a drama queen." Heh. I know I'll hate him in under three episodes or however long it takes for him to grow a mustache, whichever is shorter, but he's kind of entertaining me right now. In an interview, Alicia sees things differently. "Who made Rob master of this camp and Amber his little in-pocket girl?" That clip certainly made it look like it was Alicia, not Rob, who was trying to be master of the camp, but I can't speak to what else he might have done. I also don't understand why they couldn't have, say, three people work on the shelter and three work on water. Is this Starting Over, where you're graded on your team-building exercise instead of actually having to accomplish anything? How many people does it take to make fire, anyway?
