Now, Jeff asks Nate whether the tribe has a lot more harmony without J.P., considering that they booted him partly on the theory that he was bossy and caused discord. Jeff also asks whether somebody else has stepped up to be a leader. Or, I guess, a "leader." Nate can smell what Jeff is cooking, and he says that there are times when Cristina tries to take over and can be a little bit much. "A little overbearing," he calls her. Jeff asks Cristina about this, and she says that she didn't really realize she was like that. There is eye-rolling all around, especially from Jenny, who simply doesn't believe that bossy people don't know they're bossy. Cristina says that she usually hangs around with police officers, and with more of that same sheepishness that appears genuine, she says that she's glad the tribe told her she was coming across that way, because she doesn't mean to. I kind of admire that, especially if she thinks they're all full-of-shit lazy-asses, because she went belly-up there in a way that many people cannot bring themselves to do. Asked rather randomly whether the tribe has been honest, Adam says he figured that Cristina knew she was "that way." He doesn't really answer the question. Rebecca also non-answers, saying she thinks the tribe may or may not need to be more candid -- she'll know after the vote. No idea what that means, seriously.
Okay, it's time for the voting. Brad votes. Cristina votes for Stephannie. Adam votes. Jenny votes. Stephannie votes for Cristina. Nate, Rebecca, Parvati. Jeff goes off to tally. First: Cristina. Stephannie. Stephannie. Stephannie. Stephannie. Stephannie. So...Stephannie, then? She gives hugs, and she is snuffed. Farewell, Stephannie. The world was unprepared for your extra "N."
Next week: double tribal councils. Well, it is just about time to thin the herd, after all.
