Osten and Andrew take a stroll on the beach, and Osten says that it's going to be either Ryan S. or him leaving that night. Andrew tells Osten that they have absolutely no chance if Osten's gone. Andrew interviews to the same effect, saying that there's no way Morgan can compete with Rupert and the Boys of Buff over at Drake if they don't have Osten. Of course, they competed with Drake in the raft challenge, in which Osten played a very minor role. And he wasn't much help in the diving challenge, since he can't swim. I'm not sure the whole "Osten = victory" equation is shaping up for me. But then, far be it from Andrew to apply logic. Osten again interviews about his fears of pneumonia. Which he still apparently thinks you get from being cold. This time, he specifies that he doesn't want blood in his lungs. "If your body wants to make you stop, you're stopping," he says. The fact that this big, muscular dude is threatening to keel over from bleeding lungs after six days makes me just...astonished. I guess he's bummed that he wasn't cast in Survivor Mazatlan.
Lill and Ryan S. have a chat in which she points out that Osten's real beef is that he isn't winning, so he wants to quit. I suspect that she's exactly right, actually, and that he also wants a lot of attention and stroking about how great he is and how much the team needs him. Lill calls out Osten's "my body cannot take it" routine as obvious crap, considering that he's been spotted playing coconut football with Andrew on the beach and looks perfectly hearty. "Piss-poor attitude, isn't it?" Lill says to Ryan. (The troop at home: "Oooooooh.") Ryan S. agrees. He later tells Tijuana about his conversation with Osten, and she's again depressed to hear that her sweet baboo is threatening to quit. She interviews that she was upset and disappointed in him for quitting, but not so much so that she doesn't try to keep him around, apparently. She goes to him and talks to him about it, and he tells her that he's not sure yet what he wants. "He has what it takes, in my opinion," she says. "That's what pisses me off."
Morgan makes its way to tribal council. When they're all seated around the fire, Peachy gives them his biggest asshole grin. Occasionally, I really love that about him. "Here we go again," he says. He asks them what the camp issues are. Andrew says that it's still all about sleep. The floor is uncomfortable, so everyone is hardly sleeping at all. Andrew blames this in part on having to rebuild the shelter after Sandra took the tarp. "Sandra took the tarp yesterday," Peachy points out. "So what did you do for the first five days?" Heh. I love it when you can insert, "ya maroon" at the end of all of Peachy's questions. Ryan S. answers that he thinks the reason they haven't resolved the situation yet is a simple lack of focus. He says he thinks they need a plan. He thinks they need "more teamwork and more unification." Everyone nods gravely at Ryan's plea for intra-tribe love, trying to remember how to spell his name.
