We get a shot of the raft, and it looks like the problem is that the floatation barrels on the left side aren't attached firmly, or at all, or something. Corbin wants to conduct a post-mortem on what went wrong, but no one really cares. Michael points out that they never could have beat Erik, so the only way they could have won was if he refused the exemption. Erik paddles over to Ahmad, who I think is wearing Zubaz. Remember those? They were like genie pants for men, and usually came in an animal pattern, like zebra stripes? And then if you were really lucky, you could get them in your team colors? Yeah, I'm pretty sure Ahmad has a pair of those on. I hate him. Ahmad tells Erik that he's got a choice. Ahmad will put $60,000 in the pot if Erik will give back the exemption. Erik sighs and tries to look like he's "thinking." That's something he heard about in the movies.
Erik asks what Ahmad would do. What a dumb question. Ahmad says he's not in the game. Erik says he'll take the money. Ahmad clarifies that Erik won't get the exemption, which would guarantee him into the next round. Hee! I wonder if Ahmad would have made that clarification with any other player. Erik says it's a lot of money, and that he's confident that he knows who The Mole is. Interesting. Does that mean that Kathy knows who The Mole is, too, since they have a coalition? Ahmad announces that the pot now stands at $102,000.
Back on the shore, Kathy struts into the water and tells everyone to look at her ass, which is...well, it looks like a normal person's ass, not a celebrity ass. She also wears her sneakers and socks (they're not high tops, as I had thought earlier) into the water. In an interview, Kathy says she was determined not to be seen on television in a bathing suit, but that she couldn't care less because it's too hot. She adds that her "cellulite was flying all over" and "here's the kicker: Corbin won't stop making the boat." Everyone else cools off in the water as Corbin flips the raft over to show them how they should have done it. Corbin marches out of the water and says that he's going to make it work because it's pissing him off. In an interview, Corbin says it had to cast some suspicions on him as the builder, since he couldn't get it done. Good! Let them be suspicious of you, if you're not The Mole. Let them throw some votes your way, and get themselves executed for it. Does he understand how the game works? Corbin gets the raft together, then sits on it and says this is what he was aiming for. And then the raft flips over backwards. Hee! That was awesome.
