Amy is still happy with herself for surviving her bad ankle.
Farmer Beavis learned that traveling is easier than he thought.
Bobby Jon notes that he got his ass kicked by Mother Nature, which was humbling, as are most things that happen to Bobby Jon, I believe.
Jamie has decided to be more honest, because he really missed being around the trustworthy. I suspect the trustworthy did not miss Jamie.
After Danni and Steph talk about how Gary was a father figure for them, Gary says that he thinks competition is just like life -- part of a team, blah blah. The fact that you can't at all play this game as a team sport is kind of lost in the shuffle.
Judd says that Survivor was like "mental rehab." I don't want to butt in, but I'm not sure he was ready to be discharged, you know?
Cindy tells us that she has no regrets. "I can't think of anything I could possibly complain about other than not winning," she says giddily. Now that is a chick who knows how to look on the bright side.
Steph remarkably manages to rhyme "Lydia, oh Lydia" with "we didn't want to get rid-a-ya." Oy. Lydia tells us that she acted as a provider, but "more than that." Though she doesn't tell us what. She also says she's swearing off corn. And, I'm sure, religious chickens.
When we return from some more commercials -- because there haven't been enough yet -- we are at what is clearly the F3 challenge setup. Jeff takes the immunity necklace back from Rafe. In this challenge, you stand inside a wooden frame on a platform that swivels freely in all directions on a very small pivot point. For the first hour, you'll be able to hang on to two ropes that come down from the frame. This will give you time to get used to the feel of the platform. After an hour, you have to let go of one. And after another half-hour, you have to let go of the other one. Critically, you're out of the challenge only when your feet hit the platform that's substantially below your swiveling platform. In other words, the platform starts out probably a foot or two off the ground, so you've got some clearance. Did that explanation make sense? I always want to draw you a little picture, but if you've seen a game of Hangman, you're about halfway there.
Ready, and...go! They stand. They stare. It always seems like there should be pistols or fireworks or a floor show to mark the beginning of one of these challenges. And then there are some fades to mark the passing of time, and Jeff says, "Twenty minutes." "Left?" Steph asks. "In," Jeff responds. "You've only been up there twenty minutes." Steph does not look happy. At one point, Rafe manages to sneak a hand up to fling his glasses off, which is pretty impressive, but fails to make the "S" appear on his chest as he apparently planned. Jeff announces the passing of the forty-minute mark, and Howlie agrees. Jeff asks everyone how often they've had immunity. Steph and Danni once; Rafe four times.
