She knows the only thing you’d put in your pocket before tribal is a damn idol. Laura’s a little worried that Reynolds Wrap might fuck up their voting plan by giving his idol to Allie, but I think Laura is overestimating Reynolds Wrap’s ability to think about anyone but himself.
Unfortunately Laura has no time to tell her alliance of this development, but again, I don’t think it’s really gonna matter.
Jeff welcomes them to their first tribal and gives them his whole fire is life spiel. He jumps right into it, asking Michael what it’s like to be out here with people you’d probably never hang out with in real life. Michael points out that there are people with things in common out here, like having a family or thinking you’re too cool for school.
Allie explains that the cool kids like to hang together because they are close in age and have a lot in common.
We all think we’re all that.
Jeff asks Shamu how the experience has been for him and Shamu explains to Jeff that he’s the biggest guy on the tribe and since they don’t have a lot to eat, he’s been trying to conserve his energy.
Is that code for laying around camp and doing nothing all day?
Hey, if that’s what it takes! He should know, having survived two tours in Iraq as a Marine. I can feel Marines across the country yelling at their TVs right about now. Shamu’s not done though; he says in the Marines he had the benefit of great leadership, unlike out here where every person is out for himself.
Michael agrees that their issues with leadership hurt them in the challenge and it causes friction in the tribe. Reynolds Wrap is a little blunter with his opinion, saying that they are all frustrated with Shamu because he has a big mouth opinion about everything but doesn’t lift a finger to help, choosing instead to lay around like a blob all day. Like yesterday, Reynolds Wraptells Jeff, Shamu was in the hut for nineteen hours.
But that’s because I’m an outcast. He’s just a big loud guy who likes to say shut up all the time. It’s not his fault if they don’t appreciate him for who he is.
Jeff asks Laura what she thinks about all this and she says coming into tonight she was under the impression that they were all voting as a family…but she did see something else go down….she saw a bulge in a pocket and they all know what that means
Crap. Now I’m gonna get called out for jacking off in the shelter. Great.
