Li'l Russell votes first. He walks past the jury on his way into the booth, and Courtney pretends to throw up as he passes her. Hee hee hee. He votes for Amanda, saying he'll be using the idol tonight to get rid of her and reminding us that he's the one who found it and not Danielle. Who is he even telling this to? The camera guy? Us, at home, who he must know would have already seen his amazing idol-finding achievement? Himself? Amanda votes for Parvati, saying "I have to play my game, you have to play yours." That's all we get, and Probst leaves to "tally the votes." "You do that," Courtney mutters over in the jury box. Wow, she is just the best. Can you imagine if she and Eliza were in the jury together? It would be so cool. She then gives Probst a sarcastic thumbs-up. Douche is enjoying her antics just as much as I am, by the way.
Probst returns and asks if Li'l Russell would like to play his immunity idol. Why yes, of course he would! Danielle just laughs, while Parvati looks pissed. Li'l Russell says he thinks "someone" did flip after all, so he'll be using this idol for himself. I kind of love how Li'l Russell really thought that the vote was going to be 4 for Amanda and 5 for him, and then his idol usage would save his ass and he would once again prove himself to be the greatest thing that ever happened to this show in his own mind. But guess what? Rupert is grinning like an idiot because he knows that his tribe didn't vote for Li'l Russell -- he just doesn't know how many of them were on his side. Probst doesn't even bother proclaiming the idol to be real, just goes into reading the votes. Amanda gets two votes, as expected. The third vote, however, is for Parvati, who immediately thinks "OH SHIT." We cut to Courtney, who is laughing her ass off. Pointing and laughing, even! Parvati gets a second vote. "Damn it," Li'l Russell mutters, which I believe is the same thing J.T. said when Parvati pulled out that second idol last week. Amanda gets a third vote, then a fourth. But she knew at least four votes were coming her way, right? Parvati gets a third vote. Did Sandra and Candice come through for the Heroes, or does Candice totally suck and thus voted with Li'l Russell? Of course, it's the latter. Amanda gets a fifth and final vote to be voted out of her tribe for the first time in her three seasons on this show. Which is pretty impressive, especially since she's really not that good at this. She gives her torch to Probst, saying she knows he's been waiting for a long time to do this. He doesn't say anything back to her because the Tribal Council ritual is serious business and he cannot deviate from its script. Still pantsless, Amanda leaves the set. Li'l Russell turns to Parvati and whispers, "I had to. I'm never that nervous." "You wasted one," says the girl who handed idols out like Halloween candy last week. She then rolls her eyes disgustedly and Li'l Russell makes a sad face.
