Haha... If Chelsea says "y'all get one and then we'll get one," isn't that the same as Matt saying "we'll split them"?
Secondly, I reiterate my point that Chelsea never gets the chickens without the men helping. When she grabbed the first, it was pinned between Bill and Matt and thus ran right into Chelsea. If I chased a chicken to you and you grabbed it, I would be pretty ticked if you then said it was yours and not mine.
Matt was actually right about that. Chelsea probably was planning on giving a chicken up, but when she had both of them in her hands and everyone bowing to her, she got hit by a rush of ego. He called it "playing hero," but I'd just call it getting a little taste of power. Really, she did as poorly as Matt with it. She had the opportunity to earn favor by being gracious. Instead, she chose to tick the men off. Directly because of her action, the women had to go without fire for the night.
Because of Chelsea, until Christina helped heal the rift, not a single man was shown at the women's camp except for Zoltan.
As much as I initially agreed with the men's decision regarding the fire, if you think about it, the wisest thing to do was probably to swallow their pride and take Sabrina's original offer of the chicken. The men building a fire pit in the women's camp while the women gave them their chicken, which they had already earned, would have likely quickly sealed all wounds between the camps.
