Kalabaw returns back to camp and Penner has questions. He is surprised that Katie voted for him. He then asks Jeff Kent if he knew of it. Jeff admits she wanted him out and could not convince her to vote another way. Penner says he will keep his eyes and ears open because this game is a game where everyone lies.
Jeff made a mistake last tribal. He should have told Penner that Katie was voting his way just to keep the male alliance strong. Now, Penner has reasons to not trust Kent because he is not 100% honest with him.
On Tangdang, Mike has nostalgia. He fell in the fire on this day on his season. He tells his tribe that they are all on equal footing.
A boat arrives and the tribes have 10 minutes to collect their personal items because the boat will take them to a new beach. It is a tribe of 7 vs. 4. A feast is laid out on the beach. Baskets full of wine, cheese, meats and bread, the environment is full of merry. Well, except for RC and Skupin. They are the free agents of Tangdang. Since they are the red-headed children of the bunch, they have no allegiance to Abi, Pete, and Artis.
Pete makes an interesting comment. He says Skupin only does what RC tells him. This does not paint Skupin in the winner’s light. I don’t know if the editors want us to root for Skupin or Pete’s side.
While everyone is getting to know one another, building camp, and making deals, Lisa is doing a good deed. She decides to air out everyone’s clothes so it can be dry by nighttime. Malcolm wrapped his immunity idol in his shirt and Lisa found it. They both talked, awkwardly, and now Lisa is in a three person alliance with Malcolm and Denise. Lisa is hesitant about this alliance because it came so fast and she thinks that she may not be the only actor on the island.
And she is right, Penner is a former actor. Granted, he wasn’t as famous as her but he did work in the 90s. Those two had a convo about her fame. He makes a comment that the younger people have no clue who she is because they are young. Lisa says it is healing to know people genuinely like her for her and not because she was on TV.
Penner talks with Skupin in the sea. He is scared of the returning player bull’s-eye. The two propose an alliance with 4 Kalabaw teaming up with RC and Skupin, since they were ostracized by Tangdang.
Jeff leads the anti-former player alliance. He wants the merged tribe to tie the vote 4-4. 4 votes to RC and 4 votes to Penner, in case he plays the idol.
