Jeff asks Bruce if he feels unappreciated, and he says that he sometimes does, because his tribemates ask him for advice and then challenge him on it, including thousand of students. "But Bruce," Aras says patronizingly, "we are not your pupils." He lectures Bruce that when he's challenged, he "can't look at it as some sort of ego blow." I am so over having Aras in charge, can I just tell you? He and Bruce fight back and forth until Chiclets breaks in and says that she thinks Bruce deserves a little respect for being so old and experienced. Bruce apologizes again, and says that he'll take everything they say to heart. He and Aras share a knuckle-knock, and I just don't get that. I hate it when they all feel obligated to pretend not to hate.
Jeff reminds the group that Bruce might have the immunity idol. I wonder if any of them even thought of that when they were talking about booting him.
Cirie votes. Bruce votes for Courtney. Chiclets votes for President Beefcake, calling him "egotistical" and "selfish." Courtney votes. Beefcake votes. Aras votes for Bruce. Shane votes, saying it's a "throwaway vote." Jeff heads off to tally.
Ready? Okay. Courtney. Bruce. Beefcake. Aras. Bruce. Beefcake. And the final vote goes to Beefcake, so he's done. He comes up to be snuffed. Adios, President Beefcake. I enjoyed your term of office. Jeff tells the rest of the tribe that they did seem to be in distress originally, but maybe now they'll be able to pull it together. He sends them away.
Beefcake is surprised in his post-game interview that he's gone so soon, but he thought his tribe was made up of weaklings and losers, basically. Cheers!
Next week: the anti-Shane maneuver happens at last. La Mina is still starving. Something shocking happens at tribal council.
