Finally, Li'l Russell sits down with Jaison. He's not as angry with him as he was with Natalie, because Jaison is a man and thus demands more respect. Jaison denies ever telling Monica any of that stuff and says she's just telling Li'l Russell this to stay in the game. Jaison interviews that he "might have" told Monica about Li'l Russell's financial status but he "honestly" doesn't remember. Bullshit. Anyway, now he's worried that Li'l Russell is coming after him. Not that he'll do anything about it. He has a meeting with Mick and Natalie, saying he thinks Li'l Russell will take Shambo to the Final Two over any of them. "Oh my word," Natalie says. Li'l Russell tells Shambo that he's pissed off now, and that's a good thing because it'll get him thinking. He's just trying to cover for the fact that a "stupid girl" like Monica got to him. "The little bitch needs to be sent home tonight," he says of her in an interview. But he's also aware that Jaison might be plotting against him as well. So he's bringing the idol with him to Tribal just in case.
They arrive at Tribal and Probst calls in the jury. Dave Ball has chosen to let his hair down for the occasion and shake his head sadly when Probst points out that he was voted out at the last Tribal, much to everyone's delight. Li'l Russell senses that someone else is getting camera time and puts a stop to that immediately, standing up to a great musical flourish and placing his immunity idol around his neck. Probst asks him what that's about. Li'l Russell says he just wants to look nice for Tribal so he decided to wear a necklace he found. Shambo says that this is a surprise to her because "everything he does is a surprise." Also, everything everyone else does. Monica, on the other hand, says this is not a surprise. Li'l Russell says that "some people" think having the idol puts a target on his back but he's going to show that it puts a target on the back of someone else or whatever.
