Back at shelter-building, there's a sort of convergence of cool people (plus Wanda) working together to get the thing going. Tom (rowr) is working with Jonathan (double-rowr), and they wind up getting Janu (whom I sort of like) to take a climb up a tree to lash a crosspiece to the tree. We get the first pixelized ass of the season as the back of Janu's pants get a little blur action while she's climbing the tree, but I don't fault her, because at least she's doing it in the name of work. Also, I somehow doubt that a Vegas showgirl is trying to get her jollies being all daring with the low-rise pants. Janu explains that she has rock-climbing experience that came in handy here, which makes sense. That kind of rational thinking is sure to get her voted off soon. Meanwhile, Stephenie and Tom have a chat in which they discuss what time of day it is, and then Tom quietly proposes an alliance between himself, Ian, and Stephenie -- not that they know whether they're going to wind up on separate tribes if there wind up being separate tribes. She agrees.
Jolanda eats a grasshopper. Well all right, then.
Coby, Caryn, and Gregg chat out in the woods about whether it would be better to get rid of threats, or what approach they prefer. Coby asks Gregg whether he's leaning toward the girls, and Gregg admits that he doesn't really have thoughts right now; he's just doing his shirtless walking-around thing. Which I want to say I support completely. Coby says that he's leaning toward Jonathan, and there seems to really be no reason for that, particularly, except that Jonathan jumped in the water. Caryn puts up a halfhearted defense of Jonathan for working so hard, but Coby brings her back to the brutally rational point that "everybody's working hard," which is really code for "It's not a work ethic contest, actually." Coby just shrugs that he doesn't "connect" with Jonathan. As if you need to "connect" with anyone on this show. As if you'd want to. Coby interviews that the entire group is convinced that they're going to head for tribal council practically immediately, so it's thrown off everyone's idea that you generally have at least three days to get to know people -- and for them to get to know you -- before you have to start scrambling. He also claims to have been going around all day to little groups of people and asking in a way he's convinced is very subtle whom they might be interested in getting rid of. And he's suggesting Jonathan. And as he points out, people are very likely to go along, because at this stage, they just don't want it to be them.
