The next item Jeff presents, he tells them, "will give [the winner] power in this game." Jonathan rapidly jumps the bidding up to $400. I really think once he got something to eat, he was mostly screwing around, to be honest. Candice bids her full amount of $500. Yul mutters to Becky that he'll give her some of his money. So with that, Becky bids $600. "Why do you need that, Becky?" Parvati asks petulantly. "You all have the numbers." Of course, if Candice needs it, then Becky needs it, because power is a zero-sum game here, dear, so if Candice wants it, Becky doesn't want her to have it. Get it, genius? Candice turns to Adam, who nods a little, and she bids $620. Becky looks over at Yul again, gets the nod, and goes to $640. Candice turns around to Adam, and he shakes his head. So stupid. You always go for the power move, especially when you're in trouble. Remember when Danni won the advantage in the immunity challenge? It was crazy -- crazy -- for them to let her get that, and it made an enormous difference. Becky is not Steph. Becky gets money from Yul, and then goes and turns it all in to Jeff. Jeff gives her the little note, which she opens. It says that she is to immediately send someone to Exile Island and take all his or her money. Yul gestures between Adam and Candice, pointing out that they both have $500. "Candice," says Becky. Even Yul makes a little "yikes" face. I think he thought maybe Adam would be the logical choice, since Candice keeps getting sent there. But they're both assholes, so it doesn't bother me. So off Candice is going, for the fourth time, to Exile Island. The other thing that's interesting is that you can see behind Candice's head that Becky is handing money to Yul. So I think that when Becky got all of Candice's money, she gave some to Yul to partially pay him back for the loan, which is really kind of cool. She didn't have to do that, of course -- she's the one who risked all her money to get the note, and Yul only risked part of his, so she'd have been justified in keeping it all, but they seem to work hard to do things as fairly as they can, and I liked that little detail. Anyway, Candice says she's not concerned about going -- it's "just some food." At least, she hopes it is.
