You know what? This is not supposed to happen. Jeff points out that Russell is just a guy and yet he talks like he thinks he’s Superman and is never supposed to fail. Russell responds that he is a guy that was formed by god’s hands and that he is a perfect creature. As far as he’s concerned, that’s the way he’s supposed to live his life. End of story.
Malcolm and Denise look like they wish they could crawl under a rock as Russell continues. Excellence, that’s what it’s all about and that’s what his life is all about.
Quit while you’re ahead Jeff. You can’t reason with him right now. The whole thing pisses Russell off, but at the same time logically he understands. Um….okay then.
Jeff sends the winners off with their stuff, the steak dinner for Tandang, while Kalabaw decides to trade in their veggies and pot for the tarp. Smart choice.
At Matsing’s camp they are understandably depressed. Malcolm says that his lowest point was after the challenge today and he can’t remember ever feeling so sad. Not even after his dog died.
As they wash off the mud from the challenge, Russell and Malcolm have a little chat. Malcolm tells Russell he should vote for Denise since they have to make sure to keep the tribe as strong as possible. Malcolm doesn’t really want to vote off Denise, but I’m sure he’d rather the bets be hedged in his favor should Russell pull the hidden immunity idol out of his ass.
Malcolm makes sure to clue Denise in on the fact that Russell thinks it’s going to be her voted out, but assures her that he’s still with her. Denise hopes her alliance with Malcolm is as strong as she thinks it is, but she’s also worried about Russell possibly having that pesky hidden idol. So she also talks to him.
Russell tells her a story about why he got so pissed after losing the challenge that involves him getting beaten up by a couple of kids when he was eight and then retaliating by punching one of those kids in the face. I‘m not really sure what that has to do with him throwing shit all over the place after a challenge loss.
He does make sure to add that he doesn’t approve of violence, but not approving of it and not submitting to acts of violence seem to be two separate things for him. I mean, I get being pissed off about the constant losses, but I still don’t understand how that story explains or justifies his constant tempers tantrums over losing.
