"Now That's a Reward: Night 7-Day 9" - October 7

Night 7: Okay... Who voted out Mia?

One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong. Here's who voted for Mia: Scout, Twila, Leann, Ami, and Lisa. If you called Lisa as an oddball... give yourself a cookie. She and Eliza fight it out over her treachery, all the while Eliza doesn't even keep secret the fact that she voted out Dolly in the last Tribal Council, using it as fuel for the fire. Lisa's only defense, a tired offense: "I did what I did. I'm not going to argue with you. I told you I didn't trust you!" Needless to say at our happy little Yasur camp, even amongst the young ones alliance, trust is at an all time low. I wonder who'll backstab who next.

Twila decides to hold a unity party, citing that the only way the men are going to go down in glorious defeat is if they work as one. Eliza would be thrilled at the prospect of total unity... if it weren't for Lisa.

it's Tree Mail time on... Day 8: Why are there so many songs about rainbows?

So you think you're living like the natives? But are they as hungry or as cold?
Frustrated by your lack of food? Your shivering must be getting old.
Well put your minds together, and maybe you'll discover,
Help is on the way, and you'll find it undercover.

And after the bickering of last night, the tribe sees a rainbow, and sees it as an omen for victory. Can I get a mic? (someone hands me a mic) Thank you.

"... Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me."

R/I-CHALLENGE: Remember This? (for 24 hours with a genuine Vanuatu tribesman named Dah)

Fifteen pairs of items are hidden under 30 cones. First team to match five pairs wins. The men keep giving away match after match, allowing Lisa to dance her way (again) to victory. Call it Dance Dance Survivor, as the women inherit the native tribesman.

Oh, did we mention that Dah does not know one stink of English? Good luck, ladies. He doesn't follow the tribe back to Camp Yasur, instead going the route of kings... the canoe.

Back at camp: You may dispense with the pleasantries. I've come to get you back on schedule.

Dah arrives at camp. Because I happen to know a few things about what tribesmen say and do having covered seven of these before, I will translate the next goings-on. The ladies welcome Dah with open arms. He says not a word and instead goes right to work, climbing a tree and grabbing some fruit to eat. Apparently this is a gesture of assistance as he offers some to the tribe in waiting. Afterwards, he continues with taro roots and sugarcane, which our ladies don't believe that they have.

Ami notices that our new friend has to talk with his hands a lot. How's that make him any different from anyone in my family?

Meanwhile, Dah takes the machete and properly cracks open a coconut for his new friends, inviting them to take a drink. Either he knows that unprocessed coconut milk has a potent laxative effect, or he's very content in getting the runs a lot. In any event, Lisa says that Dah is a blessing, while Ami says that he will build up their lost confidence and morale. "He was like a big breath of fresh air."

But for truth and trust, you need Dr. Phil.

Night 8: Home improvement with Dah.

Now that we have food taken care of, it's time for shelter. Dah takes some fronds and some bark and crafts them into a formfitting mattress. It's no Posturepedic, but in the middle of Vanuatu, what is?

But there is no time for sleep, as he leads the women out to the shore to hunt for crabs. Unfortunately, the tide is too high for crabs to jump out and bite anyone. Scout is in awe at connecting with another culture. She says the tribesman has been very gracious in sharing his knowledge. She believes Yasur has had a wonderful day and some wounds have been healed. "I think our tribe just came back together."

But have they?

Day 9: "*Here's a crab!*"

After Dah manages to find some meat products, we say our goodbyes to our new friend in song...

He has no idea what it means, but he agrees. Two or three of them need to hire lawyers and sue their teachers. Leann echoes the sentiments in that this is a morale booster.

We'll see how big of a morale booster it is... right now! Tree mail!

Many hands make light work, or so the saying goes
Fail to put your minds together and add to your tribe's woes
In a test of mental ability, it's anybody's game
Tribal Council for the losers; one more will lose their flame

Eliza points out that she is the target for tribal should they lose...

I-CHALLENGE: Grid Runners

Simple enough brain teaser if you know how to work it. I'll demonstrate with this grid using four colors and four show logos from the Shorts pages.

The object is to arrange the grid's symbols so that no color or symbol appears on the same row or column twice. First team to do that wins immunity.

Rory is spotter for the men... and can't do jack. Eliza figures out the pattern to solve the puzzle and, as a result, the women take the Pike of Power away from the men, sending the Lopevi to Tribal and, ultimately, Brady to certain doom.

How did Eliza do it? Simple... Diagonals. That's all I'll say. Don't want to ruin it for you.
