J.T. and Stephen walk up to Taj and agree that Erinn is going tonight. There's an awkward moment when Taj asks who they're voting for tonight, and they say it's not like it can be anyone else except Erinn ... unless Taj is thinking of voting for Stephen. Taj isn't paying attention and lets that thought hang in the air and Stephen gets all nervous. Taj says she was just making sure they weren't voting for her, so at least she's actually open to that possibility. J.T. interviews that they're telling Taj that Erinn is going home tonight, but that's not necessarily true.
The four arrive at Tribal Council, and here comes the jury! Douche has his stupid cane and gets a screaming eagle sound effect when he sits down. I can just see him at home thinking the editors think he's awesome and a hero for putting that in there. Ugh. J.T. looks at Douche and shakes his head with fake disappointment that Douche is on the jury and not still in the game. Stephen just looks guilty. Probst opens by saying that when the merge happened, there were six Tempura members and only three Jalapeños. Except that technically, there were four Jalapeños. Has anyone ever been as forgettable as poor injured Jim? Probst asks the Jalapeños how they managed to take Tempura down. Stephen says that they each chose a few members of Tempura to bond with and swore that they'd always stick together. Probst turns to Erinn and asks her how it feels to be the last Tempura standing. She says she's "pretty proud of [her]self" and this "speaks greatly of [her] self-pressaveement." I think she meant self-preservation. Possibly perseverance. She wound up with both and neither. Also, the jury isn't really enjoying this. "I definitely made decisions that kept me here, and that is amazing to me," Erinn pats herself on the back. She really was one of the few people who actually played this game, but she might not want to say that in front of all the people at whose expense she played it. Probst asks her if she scrambled back at camp following the challenge. Erinn says she learned from everyone else who went out before her that scrambling doesn't work. Probst asks if she's saying that she's going home tonight. Erinn says she won't be surprised if she leaves the game tonight.
