Tribal Council. Probst asks Abi if she was waiting for an advantage at the auction and Abi confirms that she was. Probst asks Denise for her professional opinion on why people change in this environment. Does he mean Abi or everyone else changed? Unclear. Denise doesn't think anyone changed, but they were all just fed up with Abi's bullshit. Abi rolls her eyes.
Probst asks Penner what the vibe was at camp after the challenge and Penner says that he thought they were all planning to vote out Abi, but apparently others had different plans. Huh? No one did. They all wanted to vote out Abi too and then she won immunity. Anyway, Penner calls out Skupin and Lisa for making an alliance with Malcolm and Denise, when they had been telling him all along that they wanted to go to the finals with him. Malcolm points out that Penner didn't trust Lisa enough to make an official alliance with her and Penner says that Lisa voted for him twice, so of course he didn't trust her. But now, Penner wants to appeal to their friendship and remind Skupin and Lisa that they probably don't have a chance against Malcolm and Denise. Penner is nervous; he's gulping water.
Malcolm says he doesn't want to get into an argument with Penner and he doesn't want to browbeat Lisa, but it's not like Lisa wasn't friends with Malcolm and Denise at all and she did give her word. Lisa knows that whichever way she votes, she'll be hurting people she cares for and Penner adds that if she votes him out, she'll be giving Malcolm or Denise the million. Wow, he's great at getting people on his side: first, he yells at Lisa for ditching him, then he says he doesn't trust her at all, and then he adds that there's no way she can beat Malcolm and Denise. I can't believe Lisa's not jumping at the opportunity to hang out with him some more!
