Anyway, Jeff says that it's time to vote. He sends Bobby Jon, who votes. Then James votes for Ibrehem. "Sorry, Ibrehem," James snarls. "You and I, we just don't get along." Right. Because Ibrehem is God-fearing, and you are not. Punk. Ibrehem votes for James, saying, "Sorry, brother." Steph appears to hesitate, but then votes. Jeff goes off to tally. He returns with the urn, decision is final, blah dee blah. The first vote goes to James. The second vote goes to Ibrehem. And then James -- which puts a surprised look on his face -- and then Ibrehem. So now, it's a tie. Oh, Steph. Jeff sends Stephenie and Bobby Jon off to vote for either Ibrehem or James. "It's your last chance to change your vote," Jeff says. Bobby Jon and Steph both vote. Another tally, another urn. "Tally" being a fairly loose term here, obviously. At any rate, the first vote? James. Second vote? Also James. And he looks very surprised by that. Steph turns to him and apologizes quietly. "I understand, y'all," he says. He does not understand. And frankly, I don't understand, either. Why did Steph do that? If she was going to vote for James, why make a show of her disloyalty to Bobby Jon? It was suggested by the Eagle-Eyed Forum Posters that she was afraid that Bobby Jon and Ibrehem might vote for her, so at least siding with James assured her the tie. But that just doesn't wash for me. If she was going to trust that James would vote for Ibrehem, why not trust Bobby Jon and Ibrehem not to vote for her? James is far more sketchy than Bobby Jon or Ibrehem. I don't really get that, but...there you go.
Anyway, James is snuffed. SNUFF! He and his Jesus dress take off for the last time, and Jeff tells Ulong that three people is officially the teeniest tribe ever. Jeff sends them back to camp, barely refraining from yelling, "You people suck!" as they go. I mean, you just know it.
In his interview, James says that his gut told him he wouldn't be voted off. So apparently, his gut is not infallible. He says he's glad he got to play. Me? Not so much.
Next week: more about Gregg and Jen. Bobby Jon hits the fish jackpot, but is overshadowed by Tom winning the shark jackpot. Way to ruin the suspense, guys.
