A monkey eats; elephants eat; birds eat. The S7 don't eat, but do retrieve a little wobbly-headed pig from the treemail. I have a little turtle just like that wobbly-headed pig. It's made from a real nut! Tom puts his head next to the little pig and asks, "What's the difference between the pig and this?" Ethan says, "No boil on the pig?" The others cackle and Teresa says she had the same answer to Tom's riddle. The pig has tusks, so maybe it's a boar? In any case, Teresa reads the clue aloud like she's reading to five-year-olds. In a way, she is. The poem is about needing strength down the road and having a "good carbo load." They're informed of protein and sugars headed their way, and also that "if [they] are clever, these gifts [they] may earn." Having already seen the upcoming event, I can't figure out wherein lies the clever. Getting there?
The S7 arrive at the designated site, and Peachy tells them that the day's reward challenge will be a break from the challenge and instead is just "pure reward." Each of the S7 has been given a "personalized wallet" with 20,000 Kenyan shillings inside. Peachy announces, "We're gonna have a little bit of an auction," and then yells, "Survivor auction!" because evidently they weren't enthusiastic enough. He also warns the S7 that the auction will end abruptly, because there is a predetermined number of items up for bid. The bidding will be in 500 shilling increments, and Peachy explains that $1 USD is roughly equivalent to 100 Kenyan shillings. I have no idea why the currency conversion even matters in this situation; all that matters is that they win some food and spend as much of their money as possible. Finally, the S7 are told that they can share auction items as long as they pool the money for the purchase, which seems like a ridiculous rule, but it doesn't matter, since it isn't enforced later anyway.
The first item up for auction is a hot cup of coffee with sugar, and "a nice big chocolate croissant." Peachy starts the beginning at 3,000 shillings; no one else wants this reward, so Lex Loser wins for the opening amount which Peachy proclaims "a bargain."
Next up is a cheese and crackers plate for 4,000 shillings. Kimj bids against Ethan and wins with a 6,000 shilling bid. As she prepares to bite into the hunk of cheese, she says to Just Peachy, "Look at that!"
