Marcus goes off with Charlie, who is apparently back from his shit-talking and shit-ditch-digging session with Paloma only to go off on another shit-talking session with Marcus, who wonders how many days into this thing it will take before Ace gets irritating. "One," Charlie says. He thinks Ace the Prat is here to "play hard," so the best strategy for them is to "lay low." Marcus agrees that they just have to let Ace the Prat "run the show" until it gets so obnoxious that the tribe has no choice but to vote him out. But ... you can't vote Ace out! He's the full package! And here's where Charlie gets a little creepy and starts saying he's looking for a player he has a "connection" with. In an interview, he elaborates on that, saying he has a "special bond" with Marcus, because Marcus picked him to be on the team and Marcus has "deep, blue, beautiful eyes." So it's not so much a "connection" as it is a one-sided crush. Marcus diplomatically says he thinks Charlie is a "well-balanced human being." He doesn't say anything about Charlie's eyes, though. Charlie says he thinks he can trust Marcus, based on knowing him for all of one hour and Marcus being hot. Marcus tells us that he's picked up on the very subtle fact that Charlie is attracted to him, but he doesn't see that developing into any kind of romance since Marcus is straight, not to mention the fact that Charlie is lame. "We're in Eden but there's no two Adams here," Marcus concludes in a line the producers totally fed him. Hey Marcus? It's Adam and Steve, not two Adams.
