Party music plays us back to Kota, because everything there is happiness and light and fun fun FUN! Charlie tells us that he was happy to be back at camp with the new food stuffs, but he claims to feel sorry for Fang and their lack of tasty treats. "The rich are definitely getting richer here at Kota," Charlie says, in a line that wasn't at all fed to him by the producers I'm sure. Dan gets the group together to start talking strategy, calling Fang the "Evil Empire," and apparently assuming that he's in with this new tribe now and that they'll all stay in the game until the merge. It starts off with the rest of tribe being like, "yay, rah rah, Kota forever," and then quickly fizzles out to them standing around listening to Dan and not looking very into what he's saying. Dan tells us that he's an outspoken person, and continues to outspeak while the rest of Kota look uncomfortable. Marcus just says that the next immunity challenge is the most important one in the game. He doesn't want to look Dan in the eye. Get a clue here, Dan.
Marcus tells us that Dan's repeated assertions of being totally devoted to the new Kota tribe make him reluctant to believe he's telling the truth. Then again, Marcus says, Susie is so quiet that he also wonders if she's on their side. You just can't win with Marcus. Marcus says he's not confident that the people in Kota right now will have his back when they get to the merge. Um, no. They'll all want you out. As soon as possible. As well they should. While the rest of Kota sit down to a meal of banana, Randy takes a dip in the lake and says he's ready to keep winning challenges and not "rock the boat," and that he'll be "Kota yellow" until the end. It's going to look weird when the tribes merge and pick a new color and new buffs and you're still with the yellow, Randy.
Let's check in with Sugar. She dances her way to Exile "Island" and tells us that when Kota said they sent her here for comedy's sake, she thought that the joke was really on them. While everyone else in the game is tired and starving, she's full and rested on her hammock. Today's Sugar Shack pickings are even better than last time's, she notes. "I'm definitely happy. And fat," she says.
Okay, that's enough happiness. We go to Fang, who are, of course, sitting down to another huge pot of rice and attitude. Specifically from GC, who gets all pissed off when Crystal jokingly tell him to "eat your rice." "You don't tell me to do nothing," GC says. Double negative equals a positive, so Crystal repeats her command: "eat your rice." And now GC is all bent out of shape. While dramatic "there's a storm comin'" music plays, he tells at her to stop telling him what to do. "Eat your rice," Crystal says again, totally not intimidated. And why should she be? She could kick GC's ass, except that if they ever got in a fight, he'd quit halfway through. I am enjoying this. "Shut your mouth!" GC fires back. And then: "playing with me won't be funny for too long." Oooooh threatening! Shut up, GC. ["You don't tell me to do nothing" -- GC] GC tells us that this game is harder than he thought, and living with the same people and not winning the challenges that can make their lives slightly easier makes it even harder. Well, then, maybe you should try, like, making an effort in said challenges and then your tribe might win, hmm? GC says he's beginning to wonder what he's doing out here. Oh, is he going to quit? Really? Why am I even surprised? I shouldn't be surprised. Every time GC gets in a fight, he has to quit something, and since there's no leadership position or challenge to quit, it's going to have to be the entire game.
