Seriously, if he suddenly starts getting a lot of screentime, it will be a strong hint that he’s gone by the end of the episode. But anyway, Derek speaking is the biggest surprise here, because of course the St. Thomas thing was just a red herring and Fresh Meat is once again ARENAed. (If St. Thomas was going in, it probably would have been Jonna speaking, since she seemed most offended by Marie’s anger.) Devyn reminds us that she and JD will probably be facing Big Easy and Camila, meaning their romantic days together in this hellish paradise are limited.
Trey expresses concern to CJ that the only reason his team was spared was because Robb and Marie defended him. No, the only reason your team was even mentioned is because they needed a red herring for drama. The more surprising part here is that Marie actually made such an effort to defend Trey, who she can’t stand, even if it was just self-preservation. Trey is sad that no one is asking for his opinions on alliance matters.
Oh no, Chet and CJ are fighting! Not the sane people! Although at least that means it’s a coherent fight, and therefore easier to understand/recap. CJ says he respects Chet as a friend and competitor, but Chet is having none of it since CJ is part of the alliance that keeps sending him into the ARENA. CJ doesn’t appreciate being labeled as a phony because Chet chose the wrong alliance. I anticipate a future Challenge in which Chet comes back to enact vengeance on his former friend CJ.
Out at da club, we get a nice montage o’good times before we head over to the double date that is Sarah/Alton chilling with Devyn/Big Easy. The latter pairing goes on for a bit about how they didn’t expect to find a love connection on this here Challenge, but now they are, as Phoebe Buffay would say, “so the smitten kittens.” They both keep up walls, aren’t used to this, etc.
On the bus home, Camila is not happy about the way the last challenge was played, saying that it’s all about “making sure the other teams lose, and that’s not real competition.” Which is a pretty hilarious quote out of context, because that is pretty much literally the definition of competition. Seriously, go read that again. But anyway, if it bothers her that much, she should tell the producers to stop designing challenges that promote such strategizing.
Jemmye and Camila start yelling at each other, which sends Devyn on a friggen TIRADE. Knight joins in, and Robb holds him back while he takes the briefest of detours to “bitch” before dropping straight to the C word. Class act, he is. Nany holds Jemmye back as everyone just yells at each other a whole fucking bunch. Trishelle is not thrilled to be on the crazy bus tonight, dealing with all of the insanity.
