And where's Cirie, anyway?
Jon gloats in an interview that they're all stupid enough to trust him, like they've never seen him before. As usual, he's an idiot at the moment when he believes he's a genius -- just like in his own season, when he tried to make a deal with Lill right before collapsing. None of these people trust him; they just need another vote, and they don't have a lot of other choices. There's not a person who's talked about Jon who doesn't understand who he is or what his nature is, but the fact of the matter is that he's got to vote for someone. Everyone knows he's probably playing both sides -- in fact, he's telling them he's playing both sides. They're just hoping they win the toss.
Back from commercials, we are at Malakal again. Yau-Man is trying to start a fire using a drop of water on his glasses to magnify the sun and focus it on a dry coconut husk. "The sun is almost vertical enough that this should work," he tells us. Everyone else, meanwhile, relaxes out in the water, the warmth of which Parvati comments upon. "It's like pee water!" she says with a grin. Thus did Parvati lose her membership in the municipal pool. And then Yau-Man, being assisted by Ozzy, gets the fire lit, and Ozzy calls out for wood. Eliza, in the water, gasps with joy. Everyone cheers, and Eliza explains in an interview why this was so important -- they can eat, they can boil water to drink, and they're "ready to kick some butt." Well then.
Over at Airai, Chet and one of the ladies (sorry, I'm not sure!) are walking to treemail, talking about how they'd like to get some food, and that she'd "eat rat guts right now." Wow, desperate! They return to the group with the treemail, which seems to indicate a puzzle. "Yay, I love puzzles!" Kathy offers. Mikey B interviews that he thinks the "favorites" probably think they're going to be easy prey. He enjoys being the underdog. Well, everyone on these shows prefers to be underestimated, so it makes sense.
