Back at Galu, Russell demands that everyone listen to his stupid speech before they can start cooking and eating their reward. He says he sent Shambo to Foa Foa because she lost the chicken, and now that she has "suffered some consequences" to clear her "slate." Shut up, Russell. This meaningless tribe chief stuff has gone to his head. He seems to think it's a good thing, rather than a giant target that becomes even bigger when he has to make decisions that are sure to cause dissension amongst the ranks. He commandeers the fire-starting for the barbecue and, according to Dave Ball, does a terrible job of it. He blames that on all the kindling being wet, but Dave Ball speaks up that all they need is a spark, air, and fuel to start a fire. "Dave, you do a lot of talking but not a lot of action," Russell says. Dave Ball says he was the one who started the fire in the first place, and it only went out when Russell sat down and started playing with it. He'd be happy to help if they ask him. One of the girls tells him that if he can start a fire he should just go ahead and start it. Dave Ball says he has to get the command from the tribe chief. Russell Rory Freemans that Dave Ball is a "grown ass man" who can take initiative. Since when? Isn't Russell all about telling people what to do and making stupid tribe leader speeches? Meanwhile, the blonde just sits there and rolls her eyes. I think she even gave the camera a brief look. She just might be awesome. Dave Ball interviews that he has a tendency to patronize people without knowing it, and he's afraid he'll do that in this game. Dave Ball has a good read on himself, I'd say. In our brief interactions I found him to be pretty patronizing and he probably didn't mean it then, either. He apologizes to Russell and offers to shake hands, which Russell says is not necessary. Dave Ball takes a turn trying to start the fire and is successful. I think that whole spat was more about Russell being really annoying and everyone's tempers being short because they wanted food than anything else. Dave Ball interviews that he appears to be the only person on Galu capable of starting a fire, but he doesn't need to play that up because he thinks his "awesomeness" "speaks for itself." And then we get plenty of shots of the women eating large sausages.
Back at Foa Foa, Shambo decides to share her idol clues with everyone. Oh, yuck. Li'l Russell is wearing his stupid saggy underwears again. The third clue basically says to stick your hand in a hole in a tree and get the idol. Shambo knows exactly which tree and which hole it's referring to and looks for it in front of everyone, but can't find it. Li'l Russell interviews that Shambo will never find the idol because he has it. Shambo starts to think that someone on Foa Foa already found it, and asks them each straight-out if they do. Li'l Russell says he does not, and wouldn't he tell them if he did? "I hope so," Liz says. Shambo decides that Ben must have had the idol and didn't use it when he was voted out. Liz interviews that she now knows that someone has the idol, and if it wasn't Ben, then it's Li'l Russell. And she thinks it's Li'l Russell. Ah HA! Liz has brains after all.
