Tribal council. They all come in and are seated, and if you don't know enough to know Brian is going to be voted out, then you know nothing about how they edit this show. They've done these fake-outs a zillion times, where they try to make you think that the inevitable isn't, and at this point, it's boring, because it's always inevitable. Anyway. Jeff starts off by asking about last night's storm. Gary says it was "character-building." He makes a comment about the two guys who slept through it. Brian comments that at least he woke up eventually to take a "late shift." Watching the fire, maybe? Could the fire have still been going? Or just a late shift under the umbrella? Anyway, Gary claps him on the shoulder and says, "Yeah," so that it will appear as though Brian isn't in trouble. Blake, on the other hand, is reduced to basically saying he didn't really realize what was going on. Man, that boy's teeth are really, really white. Who needs a reading lamp? Amy sings, "Gol-den Booooy!" Jeff asks about this, and Amy repeats her "comes up roses" explanation. She also mentions "a spahkle in his tooth," which is spot-on. Jeff asks Blake about the fact that he was literally gasping just a few weeks ago, and now he's Golden Boy. Blake says that he crashed, but now he's well.
Jeff asks Farmer Beavis about the social aspect. Does he see that changing? Farmer Beavis says yes, and that he's gotten to know and like some people better than others. Blake fails to grasp the irony. Jeff asks Gary about the way the tribes came together, and Gary says that it was scary at first with the numbers against him. Asked whether it's like two groups or one tribe, Amy says that, to her, it's one group and one tribe, and this is her loyalty. But she acknowledges the disadvantage she's at. Blake, on the other hand, admits that he still feels his old tribe bonds. Jeff asks Brian what he thinks is needed to keep old lines from dictating the vote, and Brian basically says that he hopes they don't operate that way because you should get to know people and so forth. Which is kind of silly, because that's not a good argument at all. In any event, he says that if he's voted off, he'll be "a victim of a minority." But he doesn't mean it that way.
