And suddenly, Probst is asking Tyrone if Jimmy T. can "change" and therefore be valuable to their tribe. Tyrone says he can, and he's still valuable now even when he isn't being "a follower." He would have more value, though, if he just went with the flow. Probst asks Jimmy T. if he can accept the tribe's preferred role for him as a follower, not a leader. Jimmy T. has said on multiple occasions that he will do whatever the rest of the tribe decides. He'll say it again, too. And then he'll start nagging everyone to let him be a challenge leader again. Jimmy T. starts to say that he will be a follower, but gets too choked up to continue. "Why does it hurt so much?" Probst asks, really twisting the knife. Jimmy T. can't answer because he's about to start bawling, so Tyrone speaks up and tells him to take this opportunity to realize that there are things he can do to be a better person or whatever. "And move forward from there," he says. Yeah, move forward right through that stupid prop graveyard and off the show. Why bother giving Jimmy T. false hope that he's going to get another chance if Tyrone is planning to vote him out anyway? I don't get it. Jimmy T. says that he's a man of his word, and if he's giving his word that he'll be a worker bee for this tribe, then he will. With that, they vote.
Holly votes for Dan, saying "sorry about your shoes." HA! Remember when Holly was ridiculous? That second episode of this season had so much promise. Dan votes for Jimmy T. Jimmy T. votes for Dan. And Marty votes for Jimmy T., saying "see ya, pal," and managing to sound less sincere than Holly when she apologized for ruining Dan's shoes. And just to be especially cruel and crush Jimmy T.'s spirit all the more, Probst reads off three votes for Dan and gives him false hope before revealing five votes for Jimmy T. He's too devastated to do or say much, although Jane is so upset about Jimmy T. leaving that her mouth is blurred. Marty, of course, looks pretty satisfied with himself.
