Tribal Council. The tribe enters, followed by the jury. Probst wants Coach to talk about the possibilities in this vote. Coach says that this is an important vote, because no one is sure about their place in the rankings of the tribe, and people have been presenting him and Albert with new scenarios every minute. Cochran gives a big speech about how the jury is probably happy to hear that he's targeted to go next (Keith grins), but he feels humiliated and duped, because he thinks Upolu owes him something for saving them at the merge. Hey, you know what makes people want to keep you around? Telling them that they're jerks. Except not. Cochran has a huge sense of entitlement and is an idiot. If he wanted something in return for his flip vote, he should have negotiated it BEFORE HE FLIPPED. It's too late, now, and he's just coming off like a greedy jerk. Albert speaks up and says that he has told his tribemates that it doesn't look good to "use and abuse" Cochran. Who cares how it looks? This is the weirdest tribe dynamic I've seen in a long time. They're acting like they're on Big Brother, where they think there are good people and bad people. When in reality, there are winners and losers, and you have to break some eggs to make an omelet. Actually, I hate that saying, because don't you have to break all of the eggs to make an omelet? If not, I've been doing it wrong.
Coach's response is that he recognizes that they are all still in the game because of Cochran's move. Probst asks Rick if he's worried and Rick says, "Yeah." Seriously, why is Rick still in the game? He has no personality and he doesn't contribute anything. Probst sees that Edna is actually showing an emotion and he asks what's up with her. Edna says that she was led to believe that all six of the remaining Upolu were equal, and she's sad to find out that she's actually in sixth place out of six. WHAT DID SHE THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN? They can't win as a team. Has she not thought about her place in the tribe? Has she talked to anyone about it? I mean, even if she did have a chance of making the finals, how did she plan to get jury votes? Because she did laundry? She won no challenges, and in fact, they usually sat her out if possible. She's useless. And she's even more useless because she apparently put no time into thinking about who would get voted out when. Who did she think was below her on the ladder? I seriously wish Probst would explore this and say, "Edna, who did you think would get voted out before you, and why? Please explain your strategy." And she would have nothing to say, because she has no strategy. As much as I loathed Russell, at least he had a strategy and was trying to make things happen instead of just sitting around doing nothing and then acting shocked when he was voted out. Ugh. Edna, Cochran, and Rick can all go piss up a rope. At least Rick is sort of good at challenges, even if he is as dull as a stump.
