Next question: who's the smelliest? Nakum picks Bobby Jon (heh), while at Yaxha, Gary barely edges out Jamie. Bobby Jon and Gary are sent up to take showers. The overhead shot of Gary involves pixelizing of something that isn't even his ass, which...privacy, people. Can we get just a little? ["Or, if we can't, couldn't Bobby Jon's pixelizable bits get equal screen time, if not more? (As a pervert might ask.)" -- Wing Chun] Brian promises Gary that the tribe will be "smelling [him] all night." I'm sure Gary appreciates that. Indeed, when Gary comes back to his tribe, they all give his head a mighty sniff. Considering that he's still wearing the same stanky clothes, I really can't imagine he smells all that wonderful, or that he will for very long, but I guess you could sniff the shampoo in his hair. I usually like to smell necks when it comes to men, but hair would be adequate in a pinch.
The next question requires the contestants each to pick a man and a woman from their tribe who deserve a picnic trip. At Yaxha, Gary and Amy are chosen. At Nakum, Judd and Margaret are chosen. Now, at Yaxha, I would totally believe that they picked on basically merit and/or sympathy -- Amy's got the ankle, Gary's pretty well-liked. At Nakum, I wondered at first whether this was a function of people trying to get it for themselves by voting for people they thought nobody else would vote for, because neither Judd nor Margaret seems like the most popular person to me. But really, that would only apply to men voting for men and women voting for women, and I think the men like Judd okay and the women like Margaret okay, so I guess this is just how it played out. The four chosen ones go up, and Amy asks Jeff, hesitantly and a little tearfully, "What is it, a tarantula?" "I wouldn't do that to you," Jeff says, even though he totally would. But when he uncovers the picnic basket, it really is a picnic, with chicken, potato salad, cookies, and iced tea. So it's not a tarantula, this time. With Margaret in tears of joy, they take their basket off to eat.
The remaining tribe members are asked who has the most "tribe pride." Jeff makes reference to "bleeding" your tribe colors, which... is stupid. At Yaxha, Brian and Lydia vote for Steph, while Steph, Rafe, and Jamie vote for Brian, so Brian wins. At Nakum, Cindy nails down four votes (everyone's except Danni's) and wins it. Jeff then explains that at Yaxha, for having the most tribe pride, Brian will get to stay a member of Yaxha. Steph, Rafe, Lydia, and Jamie are being sent to Nakum. At Nakum, Cindy gets to stay there, but because Nakum has an extra person, another one of her tribe members will get to stay with her. The rest draw buffs to stay at Nakum, and Brooke is the big winner of the yellow buff. So Brooke and Cindy will stay at Nakum, as will Margaret and Judd when they return, and those four will be joined by Steph, Lydia, Jamie, and Rafe. The new Yaxha will be the tribe that's majority-Nakum, interestingly enough, made up of Bobby Jon, Blake, Brandon, Danni, Brian, Amy, and Gary. Sucks to be a suddenly outnumbered member of Yaxha. That's what Brian gets for all his tribe pride. How ironic. "You have pride! Fuck you!" Jeff sends the new tribes back to their camps.
