A change in tone to talk to Tina and Katie. Tina relays the story of how her son, Katie's brother, was killed in a car accident just a few weeks ago. Tina wants to spread the message that people need to always wear their seatbelts. Probst asks Tina why she was willing to come to the reunion when this tragedy was so recent. Tina says that she considers the people she played with to be like her family, and being with them brings her comfort. I note that Tyson has reached his hand back to hold Tina's leg as a means of support, which is nice. Katie says that having this reunion to look forward to has been helpful in a time of darkness, and she really feels the love. She adds that in lieu of flowers, they are asking people to donate to the Red Cross for Philippines disaster relief.
Tyson gets his check, which is disappointingly normal-sized. So what's up for next season? There will be three tribes: brains vs. brawn vs. beauty. No returnees. It could be interesting. It could be terrible. We will all find out in February. See you then!
