Tribal council. Jeff introduces the jury, including a haggard Shane, who has probably been smoking ever since he left, and has not made the usual pre-show leap to a fitter, finer, more lovely condition. Jeff then remarks on how F4 consists of one person from every original tribe -- one older woman, one younger woman, one older man, and one younger man. He asks Aras whether his two challenge victories mean that momentum has shifted, and Aras says that he thinks that every time out, he has a chance, so he was confident that if he kept working in the challenges, he'd eventually get a win. Jeff mentions to Terry that this is his first time at tribal council without the individual necklace since the merge. Does he feel vulnerable? "No," Terry says, not so cleverly. Jeff asks Cirie if this seems weird, and Cirie basically says they all know, and they've all known for a while, that Terry has the hidden idol, so what's to be surprised about?
Jeff brings up the fact that the F4 vote is the last time that the idol can come up. Chiclets gives a little speech that they suspect that Terry has it; Aras says that he knows Terry had it, but he doesn't know if Terry has it right at the moment. Jeff asks Cirie how she'll feel if this is her last night. Cirie says that she's been underestimating herself all along. The jury looks at her with affection, as she explains that she had a great time and feels okay about how she did. What about Chiclets? This serves as Courtney and Shane's opportunity to make faces, which I really do wish they would stop allowing that. It affects the game. Quit it. Oh, and Terry says that he's going to learn from his mistakes in the future. You know, if he gets voted off. Sigh.
Aras is keeping the necklace. Chiclets votes. Terry votes. Cirie votes. Aras votes. Now, it's time to read. Are you prepared to be shocked? Yeah, no need, really. First vote: Chiclets. Second: Cirie. Courtney makes a display of cheering for Chiclets to be out. Third goes to Chiclets. But the fourth is indeed for Cirie, so there will be a tiebreaker. And indeed, it will be a fire-building challenge. As usual, the task is to build a fire big enough to burn through a rope.
Survivors ready? Well, too bad. To Be Continued.
