(I must digress for a moment to say that every episode they've told us campers would "leave the jungle forever," so having them all back right in camp tonight is annoying me. I am too literal, or this show is too dumb. I'm going to choose to believe it's the show, not me.)
Back with eliminated campers talking about the finalists: John's an amazing athlete. He's super competitive. He's helped Patti through rough spots. Daniel thinks John's competitive nature is an advantage. Um, yeah, except that America has the entire say in everything, so none of that matters ultimately. It helped him get this far, but cannot help him now. Holly was surprised by Lou, who she said is fearless. Daniel says Lou's exactly who you see in the show: caring, sharing. Sanjaya says he's totally fearless. They all think Torrie's in great shape, and smart. Stephen thinks her looks are probably helping her get a lot of votes. Janice says she's a competitor. Sanjaya says she has perseverance and drive. Daniel wants John to win. Holly wants Lou to win. Patti wants Torrie. Holly wants Lou. Stephen wants Torrie. Sanjaya wants Lou. Speidi want Spencer back in the jungle, so he can win. We don't get a Janice answer, apparently. [I'm sure it was long and pointless. - Z]
Myleene and Damien are still in camp with the finalists and former campmates. Damien says it's time to start revealing votes. Myleene first congratulates all of them for enduring this grueling 24 days in the jungle. She tells them that America "has enjoyed every single minute." I don't think she's been reading my weecaps. She tells them they're all winners. Damien tells them the next celebrity to "leave the jungle forever" (see how they do that?") is... John. Of course. Sad music plays as he hugs Lou and Torrie. Then Myleene shows John his "jungle journey." He says the jungle's transformed his life and we get to see him overcome his fear of spiders, fall in the water the first day, fight with Janice and then hope for forgiveness. Lou thinks he's fabulous. John finds the silver lining in everything. His friendship with Patti. He thinks being in camp is making him a better father, husband and human. He says it's the biggest life-changing experience he's ever had. So only two remain as we got to another commercial.
We're back with inspirational clips of Lou talking about how great this is because of the emotional bonds and foundation of relationships that will go on. John calls Lou his "brother from another mother." Lou thinks he'll come back from the jungle strengthened. His experience has been complete. Then Torrie, who says she wouldn't have believed she would do this a few years ago. It's been harder than she thought, but she's surprised herself. She realized she's sort of fearless. Patti, Lou and John talk about how competitive she is. She feels like she can do anything after this. And now we're actually back, where Damien calls the show I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here 2009. Let's all pray to Stephen Baldwin that doesn't mean there will be a 2010 version. Damien says it's all about to end. And more build up. Then Damien says: "Lou... You nervous?" He asks Stephen if he's nervous, and he says he is. Damien wishes them both luck.
