A bit later, Jeff asks an uncomfortable-looking Jonathan where he's feeling the pain, and Jonathan says he feels it in his feet. Jonathan points out that he has big feet, so putting all that pressure on the narrow ropes is really painful. Jeff shrugs and makes a face like, "Whatever, asshole." Yul inserts himself into this Jeff/Jonathan battle, saying that he thinks "Jonathan has a point, though": "Basically, the surface area supporting all of us is about the same, even if your feet are a little bit bigger or not. But your...your mass goes up at a faster rate than surface area. It's kind of like why elephants can't run up trees." All true. All awesome. What I adore about that sequence is the ringside seat for Yul's battle with being a complete dork. It's like once he gets going, he can't decide whether to just stop talking or actually try to get through what his point is and get it over with. Jeff has nothing smart to say in return, and he can't help changing over to a more helpless shrug. Adam, sitting on the ground, just looks confused. "I'm never going to get a date again," Yul says as everyone laughs at his nerdliness. Parvati assures him that "smart equals sexy." Oh, I'm sure she totally believes that one. That's why she likes Adam. Jonathan slides down the pole until he's on his last piece of rope. Nate tries to get back up to the top. Jonathan hits the ground, and at twelve minutes, he's out. You can tell Nate is not long for this challenge at all. Sundra is also beginning to slide. After twenty-three minutes, Nate is the next one out of the challenge. So there are six people left -- all the women, and Ozzy and Yul. Sundra resettles, and Yul slides down a bit also. Sundra looks in pain, and she drops out at thirty-four minutes.
Candice decides to draw a little attention to herself by doing squats. "Get her on Aitutonga, and she goes wild!" Parvati half-squeals. Jeff asks if that's the new tribe name, and Parvati confirms that it is. Jeff's all, "Me likey," and Parvati's all, "Grrrowr," and it's really skeevy and upsetting and I feel like I want to notify a trusted adult. Yul, meanwhile, is not doing well on the pole, and he loses it at fifty-one minutes. Ozzy and the three women are left. The sun beats down. And then it starts to rain. Becky slides down, as does Parvati on her painted toenails. Parvati goes out after an hour and twenty-nine minutes. Now, it's Ozzy, Becky, and Candice. Jeff starts waving the immunity necklace around, as he does, just trying to start trouble. Somewhere, I'm fairly sure Jonathan wants to throw a spitball at him. Becky drops out at one hour and thirty minutes.
