The actual contestants, meanwhile, enjoy a drama-free day with their family members. And by "drama-free," I of course mean "so boring." Ashley shows her mother around camp while Phillip's sister tells Phillip how proud she and the rest of the family are of him. Yeah, that's great and all, but why aren't we seeing an interview with Phillip's sister where she tells us whether or not he is a Former Federal Agent? and what kind of Agent? he was? They don't even have a clip of her in the Secret Scenes on the CBS site, even though we get to meet everyone else's loved one on there. Andrea's creepy dad just wants to know how she keeps her hair looking so nice without any hair care products. Weirdo. Grant's brother-in-law says Grant's sister is sorry she couldn't be there and sends her love. And Natalie's depressed mother says she asked God to look over Natalie while she was on the show, saying this was the "one time" when she needed him the most. Wow, way to totally waste Natalie's one-time special God attention, Natalie's mom. Natalie interviews that this is the longest she's gone without seeing her mother, so this visit really boosted her spirits and gave her the strength to continue. Yes, it must take a lot out of you to sit around on the beach with Ashley and wait for Rob to tell you what to do. I can understand the need to recharges one's batteries after so much of that.
Phillip, meanwhile, tells his sister that this is a "social game" and he's "prepared to go crazy if [he has] to" because "that's what works for [him]." Ah ha! When Phillip says things like that, I start to believe that he isn't totally insane after all and this is an act and Phillip is, in fact, fucking brilliant. And then he has to go and ruin it by putting his stupid feather headband on as Rob tells his sister that Phillip is "wacko" and "a nutjob" (RACIST!!) which makes him "the greatest goat ever" to take to the end. Rob's sister is just like "uh huh. Yeah. Right" while looking so bored. Rob says he's made agreements with everyone in this game, and if these people only talked to each other, they'd figure it out and vote him out. But he's pretty confident that they won't. He interviews emotionally that this is the best he's ever played this game, but it will mean nothing if he doesn't win at the end for his family. You know, unlike the rest of the contestants, who don't have families they want to win money for.
