Fortunately, Probst takes leave of Joel so we never have to deal with him again and turns to Chet, saying that he may have given Chet a hard time at tribal council, but Chet outlasted a lot of players. Chet says Probst never let a tribal council go by without reminding everyone that Chet was the oldest and weakest person there and that athletic agility was the most awesome thing ever. Oh ho ho! Raking Probst over the coals, and deservedly so! Chet says he must have read the Survivor manuals a little bit better than everyone else. Probst doesn't deny any of Chet's accusations at all, so maybe he saw the show and realized he was a dick to Chet and this is his way of making amends? I've never seen a sort-of-humble Probst before. Perhaps with long hair comes self-awareness.
Probst turns to Tracy and says he thinks she was underrated. This is also "the word on the street." He says she was a victim of the way the numbers fell and asks her if she has any advice for future players who find themselves in a similar situation. Tracy says she doesn't think she could've done anything differently; she even begged Cirie not to vote for her at the end but Cirie wouldn't budge. Tracy says her advice is to own your time on Survivor, no matter what happens. You can't complain about what you should've done or what could've happened. Just "suck it up and take it," she says. I remember what a good player Tracy was and the respect I had for Chet for telling Probst off disappears as I remember that if Chet hadn't told everyone to vote him off so he could tend to his grevious heel wound, she might have gone a lot further.
Probst says he wants to talk to Mikey B. last because it's Mother's Day and he knows how much Mikey B.'s mother wanted her son to be on the show and how proud she was when he made it on. But she isn't here, and Probst wants Mikey to tell us why. Honestly I don't want to know; it's going to be awful, isn't it? We've already had two sick mothers and one dead one; I don't want to add to the tally. Mikey says his mother got sick right when he was about to go on the show but didn't tell him because she didn't want him to give up his trip. She died last month. But he feels like she's still here. He says he loves her and wishes her a happy Mother's Day. And with that, we go back to Probst and his dimples. He's completely unfazed by the downer note and says we'll get a sneak preview of next season after the break.
