To recap things now: Brains win the challenge and they get the awesome kitchen. By the time they leave the challenge, Debbie is looking back to normal and ready to get on with the game. Cydney doesn't look so good, but her temperature is down and she's breathing better and is ready to get back in the game. Jeff asks Kyle about taking care of Cydney, and can he now turn around and vote her out? He says that he was in the military and when a man goes down, the man matters, not the mission. He's with her to the end. They lost the challenge, so they'll go back to camp with nothing.
Beauty won second place and gets the seasoning, but they easily lost the challenge. Caleb was their strength and you could probably say he's their heart. Tai will miss his friend. At the same time, he knows now that he's down 3-2 in the numbers, so his idol becomes more important than ever. And after all that, the entire crew, the medical team, the chopper, the evac - the game continues. As we head to break they tell us that Caleb made a 100% recovery and hopes to play the game again. Yeah - something tells me that will happen. Probably pretty soon, I would bet.
We come back from break to the Brains tribe. Debbie is tellng her story to Aubry...as if she wasn't there. She tells us that she didn't want to appear weak to her daughters at home. She says they're so proud of her and she doesn't want to do anything to disappoint them.
Let's check in with Brawn now. Cydney is looking much better. But that's not what we're here to talk about. Alecia wants to talk about why, when she was trying as hard as she could and trying to stay positive, Scot felt the need to tear her down by telling her she should just be a cheerleader. She tells him that his NBA teammates would never have stood for that. He is completely dismissive of her and tries to act as though "be a cheerleader" is a compliment. To her credit - Alecia never did give up and we saw many shots of Scot just sitting there while everyone else was digging. Alecia may not be my favorite this season, but she is right this time.
Scot and Kyle try to tell her that she was trying to encourage the team at the wrong time. Meanwhile, Cydney tells us that she was trying to come back and recuperate and all this yelling is messing with her. Oddly enough, she is on Scot and Kyle's side in this. I'm not exactly sure how that works, but I'm not there, so whatever. Eventually, Scot just tells her that all she likes to do is argue and that she's next to go. Period. End of discussion. Kyle tells us that he may have gone a little overboard, but he doesn't like Alecia and doesn't like the way she represents herself as a woman. I'm not really sure what that all means, other than, he also says she's done at the next Tribal - signed, sealed and delivered.
