Li'l Russell runs over to the campfire to talk to Mick and Shambo. Mick says Galu is "gunning" for Shambo now, and she says that's been the case since the beginning of this game so she's not bothered. "It's because I'm the Sham with the plan. It's hard to compete with me," she explains. Um, they cannot vote Shambo out tonight. Not when she's walking around spouting pieces of gold like "I'm the Sham with the plan." I need her to stay in as long as possible. She interviews that she's very much looking forward to Dave Ball going home tonight and believes Li'l Russell's word that that's what's going to happen. If not, she says, she and Li'l Russell "will be having a chat." I love how it doesn't appear to have entered her mind that if Dave Ball doesn't get voted out tonight, she will.
And then it's time for Tribal Council. Oh god, it's only minute 22. Please do not let this be 38 minutes of Tribal Council. No, no, no! I used to have to watch 38 minutes of Tribal Council when I worked on this show and my job was to transcribe them and I can't do it again. I swore I'd never do it again! Probst calls in the jury, and to his credit, new juror John is all smiles despite being voted out by everyone except oblivious Shambo. Probst talks to Jaison first, asking if his reasons to vote someone out on "Day 31" (um, or Day 32. Or Day 109. Or Day -67345265322. Who knows at this point?) are different than his reasons on Day 2. Well, yes, but that's because there aren't any racists left in the game now like there were in the beginning. Jaison says it's important to get rid of people who are strong mentally, physically, and/or strategically. Shambo just nods at this, knowing she is in no danger of being voted out by Jaison if what he just said is true. He adds that it's also important to go to the end with someone you can win against in front of the jury. Probst then asks Shambo about her reasons for voting people out, knowing that unlike Jaison's, they make no sense and thus will be entertaining for the folks at home. She says she's still all about getting rid of people she deems undeserving of the million dollar prize and then says that she didn't vote for John because she thought she had an alliance with him. Thus, she was more surprised than he was when he was voted out. That's probably true, but only because John was not gifted with psychic dreams from god telling him who would be voted out next like Shambo was. Or, I guess we've now discovered, wasn't. "Great working of the jury, too, well done," Probst says. Oh, shut up, Probst. That's for the jury and Shambo's fellow contestants to decide. We don't need you calling things out. Especially since I think Shambo isn't sucking up to the jury at all because she doesn't have the forethought necessary to do so.
