The next morning at Koror, it is Day 27. Tom tells us that the group's big decision at the moment concerns who will be sent home this evening. He has a meeting with Gregg, and Gregg asks him who he thinks is going. Tom throws out that "the girls" seem to want it to be Janu, but Gregg counters that that's "an emotional response" to the way Janu is acting. He's pretty quick, that one. Gregg thinks that Steph is a bigger threat. Tom reminds us in an interview that he, Ian, Steph, and Katie agreed very early that they'd go for an F4 alliance, and that if they were split, they'd look out for each other when they got back together. But the problem is that Tom, Ian, and Katie now have a different alliance with Gregg and A-Jen, and Gregg and A-Jen are determined to get Steph out. At a talk in the shelter among Tom, Ian, and Gregg, Tom asks how long they're supposed to continue "rewarding Janu." Gregg immediately says that they can boot her next; that's fine -- right after Steph. Tom continues to try to save Steph, saying, "I still struggle with the question of why not now...." Gregg says that "Stephenie's a bigger threat than Janu is." Besides, Janu actually wants to go home. Gregg is also concerned about Stephenie's ability to withstand eleven consecutive tribal councils without going home. I love Steph so much, but Gregg is a smart guy to have his eye on that. He comments that they need to end Stephenie's "story" before it goes any further. And in an interview, Gregg says that Steph is a very tough competitor, and that she's also got that crazy-ass iron will, which undoubtedly makes her dangerous. He talks about how you can just see Steph first conquering her own tribe, and then this one, and they need to "prevent that from happening." In the shelter, it appears that agreement is reached to boot Steph. Tom tells us that, indeed, that seems to be the will of the group. "It's not where my heart is," he says, "but anything can happen."
