Native-y music plays us into the Samoan village, where the residents have removed the Nike shirts and Adidas shorts they usually wear to put on a bunch of leaves for the benefit of the viewers back home who demand the total authentic native village experience, even if it isn't at all authentic. They dig into a meal first, with Shambo ripping a whole roasted pig open so she can eat what she considers to be "the best part." I can't tell which part that is, but since it's Shambo and she's generally ridiculous I'm guessing it's the butt or wherever pork rinds come from. Jaison interviews that he's never been on a reward before, so up until now every day on this show was trying and horrible and full of defeat. He very much appreciates the chance to have a "day off" from it all. Li'l Russell is still in game mode, of course, saying he's happy to win this reward because the food will give him strength and hopefully help him to beat Brett or Mick, who is apparently on Li'l Russell's enemies list now. While Shambo's off squatting in front of the elders and proposing a toast, Jaison and Li'l Russell solidify their final 3 alliance - them and Natalie. Shambo bores the pants off of Samoa with her long-ass toast and then takes a sip of whatever drink that is and falls on her back with exaggerated drunkenness. Samoa laughs politely. Then it's time to dance. With some food and drink in him, Jaison actually has a personality and is fun. Even Li'l Russell seems like he might be fun to hang around with. Shambo talks about how this is a great way for her to build her relationships with Li'l Russell and Jaison, who would rather dance with each other than her. Not that she notices.
Back at Aiga, the losers decide to try to make their own reward, as proposed by Brett, who says they should go hunt for snails and "take a break" to "enjoy each other's company." Uh, no, Brett. You use this time to talk to Mick and Natalie and try to convince them to turn against Li'l Russell. God damn it, these people are ruining my show with their inaction and boringness! Brett adds that he's not an "overly-aggressive" player who "gets in people's faces" (NO SHIT) so he's just trying to build some relationships. Friends forever, Survivor winner never. As they walk along the beach, Brett talks about how being the last "True Galu" member left at the camp that used to be entirely Galu's feels like he invited guests to come to his house and they stayed while the rest of his family left. Don't forget that they found the immunity idol under the lamp in the living room that you couldn't be bothered to search for! "Sorry, man," Mick says. "It is what it is," Brett says. NO IT'S NOT. There's this amazing thing you can do on this show called STRATEGIZING and PLOTTING to try to turn things around and save yourself. Natalie interviews that she likes Brett and all, but she's aligned with Li'l Russell and it's not like anyone's trying to change her mind.
