As they’re talking, Jonathan walks smack dab into the middle of the conversation, smiling at them. Yul just looks at him and says they’re doing what they obviously should be doing. He continues to the Raros, saying he’s sorry, but he’s just trying to be honest with them.
As Jonathan is puttering around during this uncomfortable discussion, he picks up some coconut and Parvati says Adam was eating it. Jonathan says he’s sorry, he didn’t realize it was Adam’s. He gives it back but then Adam gives it back to him, saying he doesn’t want the rest.
Jonathan walks off to get firewood and tells us that things finally came to a head at camp. He returns and they start cooking the fish, but the three Raros are cuddling in the shelter, with Parvati being the third wheel while Candice and Adam kiss. Jonathan hears their giggles and wonders to the Aitus if they really need to share the fish. Ozzy says no, “There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” They all thank Jonathan for the fish.
Suddenly, Adam and his girls wonder what’s up. Where did the others go? Are they eating? Yup. Candice says, “That is wrong.” Is it? I’m not so sure.
She gets up to confront the eaters, asking what’s going on. “Since when do you guys not share food? That’s just so arrogant and so rude, I can’t believe this.” Most of them continue eating, but Jonathan asks if she called him a disgusting rat and should be voted out. She says he’s a rat because he betrays everybody in the game and everybody knows he only cares about himself. She continues that Yul even said he’s selfish and predictable.
Both Jonathan and Yul try to get a word in edgewise. Yul says she shouldn’t speak for him, he can speak for himself. He engages her in this discussion, admitting he said Jonathan was a “self-interested, rational player.” She corrects him – “selfish.” And she says Yul admitted he doesn’t like Jonathan. See, this is why you shouldn’t divulge secrets to your enemy.
She continues, saying “all these people” (the Aitus) have said they don’t like Jonathan.
But Jonathan doesn’t appear immediately interested in that gossip. He wants to talk about this meal. He says they all came home— Candice interrupts to say everybody has their day when they lay down. He says, “That’s bollocks and you know it!” The rest of them don’t choose their days to lay down in the tent. He works his ass off every day— she again interrupts, this time to say it’s because he’s trying to weasel his way in. Well, it worked to keep him around on Raro! And whose fault was that?
Jonathan sarcastically thanks her for not namecalling. She says she’s not – and then repeats the weasel comment. “How dare you,” he asks. “How dare you imply that I’m behaving differently today than I have for the last 30 days.” With that, he ends the discussion.
Later, Yul and Becky talk as Yul wonders how he will get on the jury’s good side. He could do it by eliminating Jonathan, and they’d still be up four to three. What’s interesting is that Yul keeps talking with “I.” If “I” vote off Jonathan, for example. Not “we.” Hmmm.
Once again, he’s being too honest here, and I think we can see it in Becky’s face. He talks about how he doesn’t want the jury hating him to the point that they vote for whomever he might be up against in the final two. Of course, that person might well be Becky, at least in her mind! So final two strategy is not really a good thing to be discussing…
Time for Tribal Council. Probst brings in the jury and starts the questioning. Becky is asked about why she sent Candice to Exile Island for the fourth time. Becky doesn’t admit that it was sheer revenge, but says Candice was the fiercest competitor. Riiiight.
Candice says she loves the game, even though it’s been rough. You have to keep smiling.
Ozzy is asked what happened at camp after the immunity challenge. He says he spent a lot of time looking for firewood and getting the fire going. Jonathan went fishing. Candice, Parvati, and Adam went into the tent. That later caused a huge ordeal with the five eating fish and the three not. Candice chimes in that the five were “not sharing the fish.” Wah wah wah.
Parvati says they were not invited to dinner. She continues that the three of them know they’re on the outside, so they were spending time with each other. “Apparently, it pissed some people off that we weren’t helping around camp. So Jonathan gets back and decides that he doesn’t want to share the fish that he’s caught.”
Adam chimes in that he thinks everybody but Jonathan was cool with them working together. Um, working? When? But he says he doesn’t really know what Jonathan thinks because they haven’t spoken.
Probst asks if they’re not speaking to each other, and Adam says he doesn’t really care for Jonathan. There’s an understatement! Nate practically jumps for joy on the jury. Parvati says it’s interesting that the more comfortable Jonathan gets with his position in the game, the more his true colors show. “It just shows the level of immaturity.” Oy. She continues that she’s half his age and claims she’s “twice as mature.” Did she hear herself after the last Tribal Council? Get real.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
