Episode one. Vokai, day 2:
Janet lying flat on her face on the ground near the shelter, pipes up gamely as Dan approaches from behind: 'What do you need me to do?'
'Nothing,' says Dan and kneels down and begins massaging and cracking her back.
'Oh,' says Janet appreciatively. 'Ah...'
'What is going on?!' Kellee says, laughing, as she arrives on the scene.
'It's a massage parlor,' a woman's voice says from the shelter.
'Dan is so good,' Molly says, turning to smile.
Kellee, in the background, turns her head away and makes a rueful face...
Cut to Kellee confessional: 'You know, in the game of Survivor, there's a lot of people that you're living with for the first time, right, like living with anyone is hard ---'
Cut to footage of Kellee lying prone on her back in the shelter with a miserable face and sweaty Dan lying back horizontally and getting his head comfortable on her.
'---and I'm a germaphobe when it comes to, like, other people's grossness.'
To Dan: 'Do you want to go here? Go here.' Directs him away from her midsection and onto her thighs.
Janet stands and watches with an odd look of slight exasperation on her face.
Dan: 'Oh my God. Combination of, like, human... and slightly more elevated. If it gets too heavy, let me know.'
'Are you sweating on my leg?' Kellee says, lifting her tired, sweaty head anxiously.
'No, no,' says Dan, rubbing his hair to demonstrate. 'Feel the back of my head.'
Cut to Kellee confessional: 'Dan's a really touchy person...'
Cut to footage of Kelly lying on her stomach and smiling as Dan's fingers prod and massage her upper back.
'He makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable, and I don't think he like really realizes it.' Her face shows discomfort as he slips his fingers under her shirt to reach the back of her neck. 'His lack of spatial awareness, being like, for me, a germaphobe---'
Cut to confessional: '---but also like a girl. I'm like, Dan, I don't want your head on my leg. It's too much. Like, I don't want your sweaty body on me. Like, at all.'
Cuts back to previous scene of them sprawled on the shelter like a litter of puppies, Molly's head close by. 'Do you want a back rub?' Dan's voice says, with his hand touching Kellee's back lightly. 'Do I want what?' 'Do you want a back rub?' he repeats, his hand still lightly on her. 'No, that's okay,' she murmurs. 'Thank you.' He takes his hand off and looks a bit wistful and sad; meanwhile Molly jaws on re sports.
(Me, back then: Poor middle-aged schlubby gay guy, he's just trying to be valuable for the tribe! Janet likes him! And please don't misuse the term 'germaphobe'. If you're on Survivor, you're not a freaking germaphobe.)
Cut to Molly confessional: 'I was a little taken aback by Dan at first. He's like really touchy. And, Dan does not know personal space.'
Cut to Molly on the beach beside Janet: 'Dan's been making me feel a little bit uncomfortable. And I don't want to cause any problems at camp, or something like that.' Janet's all, head on hand, nodding, uh-huh, looking unimpressed. 'I think that Dan's an easier person to have on your side,' Molly says, turning her head away and smiles awkwardly.
Cut to a different Molly confessional, intercut with further footage of the two women talking on the beach: 'I'm trying to be delicate about this, because it is a game, and I don't want to ruffle feathers for as long as I can, and if you get yourself into a hole earlier it's really hard to climb out of it.'
Shot of small campfire flame. Three women stand close together looking down at the fire. Kellee says, her eyes lowered: 'Dan is really touchy, and it's really a lot.' 'Yeah,' says Janet, her arms folded. 'It's too much for you?' asks Lauren. 'I don't like to be touched too much,' Kellee says, grimacing. 'It's too much for Molly, too,' Janet growls in the background. 'Oh, okay,' says Lauren, as Janet stands looking directly at her with her hands on her hips.
Cut to Janet confessional: 'The girls are very uncomfortable with Dan's physicality with them. And I've learned in my life, as a woman, you need to say what you think.'
Cut to Dan and Kellee laying side by side on the beach, Dan looking like she's speaking Martian to him: 'I think I totally, like, recognize love languages, like, your way of showing, like, that you care -- but for me, I'm like, daah! you know--'
Dan, nodding: 'I get it.'
'--whereas for me,' Kellee says smiling, 'I'm like--'
'Yeah, I know.'
'--I'm not trying to like reject that, I just come from such a different place--'
Dan keeps interrupting and nods rapidly, in a weird circling motion with his head: 'Yeah, I know. I have to be open, to--like, I have to be open to not thinking, "Oh, God, she doesn't like me, because I can't hug her the way Janet can."'
...'Hopefully over the course of these 39 days, it will like get better,' she says smiling genially.
'We will realise...' Dan burbles.
They smoothe things over, and then we cut to a Kellee confessional: "We're playing Survivor, where it's about fitting and connecting. Dan being a touchy person... it's a lot. We kind of talked about it, and it was a really, really good conversation, but I think Dan's lack of spatial awareness is really going to affect him in the game.'
Hmmmm... I seem to recall a further comment that ep from Janet re the girls spoke to him, or similar, and that that was for the best; but that was enough torture trying to rewatch and transcribe that.
tl;dr: I trusted Janet's assessment, that episode. Le sigh.
