I love the dog commercial (I think it's for life insurance) with the Jack Russell trying to get the sausage and then ending up hanging by his teeth from it. I also love the part of Tom Green's movie commercial where multiple sausages are hanging from strings that appear to be tied to his fingers so they jerk around as he plays the piano and sings, "Daddy, would you like some sausage?" Me and the sausages.
The S7 are done rebuilding and now loll around outside the tent. Colby tells us that Lamber is nervous because she thinks her team doesn't trust her. He says it's potentially dangerous for their alliance, and that she might try to start something with the Kuchas. Elisabeth says that she thinks Lamber should feel threatened. She then tells us that Ogakor diluted their power in voting Jerri off and that "it didn't seem to be the smartest strategic thing to do." Elisabeth says, "Lamber is kind of a pivot in the whole Barramundi scenario." Lamber then tells us that she could approach the Kucha people and -- all together now -- "vote them off one by one," but that she can't completely trust either team. As they head to the Council, Keith doesn't bring any of his belongings. I guess he thinks his role as sole grasshopper catcher makes him indispensable.
Alicia and Jerri enter Tribal Council looking very peeved. Keith looks confused when Peachy says that the jury will help determine who's going to be the "ultimate Survivor." Peachy asks how they felt about the trade after he left with their camp. Tina says that it was fair. She then says, "That was something that we could rebuild." I had to rewind about five times though because "rebuilt" sounds exactly like "revealed" and I couldn't figure out how to make that work. Peachy then asks Nick how he feels, and Nick says that it's been tough. Peachy says, "Direct question, Colby. Anybody here not pulling their weight?" The camera discretely zooms in on Nick while trumpets blare and a launching rocket sound effect plays. Both Colby and Rodger find different ways of saying that everyone is pulling their weight. Peachy asks Lamber how she's grown as a person. She says that she's "more open than [she] ever thought [she] would be." She says that she takes more risks and that it's definitely worth it. Peachy tells the Survivors to look at the jury, handing out their special protective eyewear because of the Jerri factor. He says, "How can you possibly vote somebody out and get their vote at the end?" It's a hypothetical, though, and he sends Elisabeth off to vote. Nick votes for Keith because "unlike everybody else, he didn't feel the need to bring his backpack" and that it's "flat-out arrogance." Keith casts his vote and then sneakily looks behind him. No pearls from Colby this week. Tina votes for Nick and says, "You seem like a really great guy, but you said you were tired of playing the game and that you weren't having fun anymore." And then in her cheery soccer-mom voice she adds, "So here's your ticket, buddy!" I'll be sad when this show ends -- if only because I love hearing Tina say "buddy." Peachy comes back with the votes, and there's really not much suspense here about who's going. The first vote is for Nick, then Amber, then Keith, then Amber, then Nick, then Nick, then Nick. Oh, those poor, naïve Kuchas. Not only did they not manage to align themselves, they lost the support of Lamber. Unless, of course, she's too dumb to realize that they voted for her. As Nick leaves, he tells them to "play tough." Elisabeth and Rodger look resigned. Peachy puts out the torch like the good little soldier he is, and wishes the others "dry hot weather" as he sends them back.
