Reunited and It Feel So...Well, Okay
Bryant "He's Gumbel-ievable!" Gumbel asks the jurors whether their minds were made up prior to the final Tribal Council. Brandon said there was no question in his mind that he would vote for Ethan, and that his question was intended as a jab at Frank because he outlasted Brandon in Africa by three days. But then Ethan named Brandon as the most undeserving of the jurors, and Brandon asks, "How could I vote for that?" Bryant wants help understanding Kelly's motivation in basing her decision on a randomly selected number. Again, it's weird how she looks very pretty sometimes. Now, not so much. Kelly says that, to be honest, she agrees with Ethan that it was silly, but she didn't want to put in "the mental effort." She knew that the choose-a-number approach "would make them squirm a little bit." Bryant then asks Frank, T-Bird, and Kimp whether they wanted the S2 to say anything in particular during the Tribal Council confessions, or if their minds were already made up. Teresa said she'd long ago told Ethan, "If it can't be me, then you're my man." She leans over, jabs her knee in his back, and through gritted teeth says, "Didn't I say that earlier?" He slumpily agrees. Bryant asks Kimp what ultimately helped her decide to vote for Kimj, and Kimp says she loved Kimj's "really sweet answer." She lists a few semi-earnest admirable qualities of Kimj in return for Kimj's earlier flattery, and calls Kimj "a real role model." Frank evidently voted for Ethan because "he's a soccer player."
