Despite having a record three North Carolinians on this season's cast, we haven't been treated to any Tar Heel talk until the tribes merge this week. That's when Chase Rice, the former UNC football player, finally gets to spend time with Jane Bright, the Moore County dog groomer.
And boy, do they hit it off, quickly swapping stories about Southern accents, dogs and shotguns. It's like Tar Heel old home week right there on an island in Nicaragua.
The lovefest brings out the worst in Jane's nemesis -- the arrogant, detestable Marty, who openly campaigns against her. He even throws in some anti-Southern stereotyping, just in case we didn't hate him enough.
But Marty isn't the most awful person of the week. That honor goes -- once again -- to the angry, vindictive NaOnka. She's a rare combination of mean and clueless. Really, NaOnka, you thought stealing food and cookware was a good strategy?
All this, plus Dan still can't walk. And you won't believe who gets sent home.
