So this tribe seems to be off to a good start. Let’s leave them here for a little while and head on over to check in with Kalabaw. Mr. Baseball is not at his best having hurt his knee in the great boat race. He’s trying to suck it up and not let his tribemates see he’s hurting because he knows he’s toast if they smell blood. Instead, he smartly deflects attention away from his injury by gathering up the entire tribe (minus Penner) to talk about how Penner MUST GO.
They all seem to be onboard with this plan and I am glad that they have learned something from all these past seasons with returning players. Maybe. Alright, I’m hoping they have.
With the red team agreeing on an early boot for Penner, let’s jump over to Tandang and see what they’re up to. Skupin tells us he would have chosen the tribe he got had he been able to pick; he thinks they have a good mix of brains and brawn.
And massive jugs.
Hey, don’t ever underestimate the power of boobs. RC is a banker pretending to be an executive assistant because everyone hates bankers right now. Luckily Abi-Maria is also a SECRETARY and so they bond immediately even though RC (henceforth known as Juggs) probably has her very own Ave Maria at home that she bosses around all the time.
OMG! Let’s totally braid each other’s hair and then you can go and get me coffee!!
Juggs came out here with a plan; form an alliance from the start. She’s got her BFF onboard so now they just need two more. They’re going for Pete because they think he’s strong and dumb (he’s an engineering student so I’m not sure he’s as dumb as they think he is) and Juggs wants to pull Skupin in as well.
Meanwhile, Ave works on reeling Pete in by talking a lot about how Brazilian her ass is.
Pete! My ass says Hola!
I’d tap that ass.
Now that they’ve got Pete onboard, Juggs sets off to recruit Skupin. He says yes.
And she rubs her boobs on him as a reward. See Lisa? Positive reinforcement DOES work!
Back at Kalabaw, Mr. Baseball and Dana seem to be hitting it off, bonding over their southerness. He tells her he has a ranch and talks about his motorcross stuff and how it’s just a hobby and he makes his money selling motorcycles. Mr. Baseball may have no intention of telling his teammates about his pro ball career, but Dawson just happened to date a guy who LOVED baseball so she knows EXACTLYwho he is.
