Parvati and Amanda pack up the cave. Amanda says she feels sick to her stomach because she has to decide who to keep and who to send to the jury. "That sucks!" she says. Except for the fact that it's awesome since it's your best chance to win a million dollars. Parvati says she's sure Cirie will understand being voted out. Damn, that's confidence. She snuggles up to Amanda and says they can work on their jury speeches and stuff together tomorrow. What fun! Whee!!! Oh, and then Parvati stupidly says that there's no way Cirie would have won against a jury. "She pissed way more people off than I did," Parvati says while a lightbulb might -- just might -- go off in Amanda's head. "Yeah, actually, huh?" Amanda says. And Cirie still has a chance!
Amanda talks to Cirie and asks her what she should go by when making her decision tonight. Parvati skulks around in the bushes nearby, just like she got so angry at Eliza for doing. Cirie helpfully and with no self-interest whatsoever tells Amanda that she thinks her best shot against the jury is to take Cirie instead of Parvati, because Cirie was the one who did "most of the talking" when orchestrating all of their blindsides. Most of the thinking, too. "I just feel like you're one of those people who talk their way in or out of anything you want," Amanda says. Oh, shit. Someone finally realized that Cirie wields such great power over people's minds. She's a goner now. Cirie says she can't talk to people who don't want to listen, and she doubts the jury will want to hear anything she has to say. Amanda agrees with this, but tells us that while Cirie has probably pissed off more people than Parvati (which I still don't agree with, by the way), she can convince anyone to do anything, so she can probably convince the jury to give her a million dollars, too. Let's hope Cirie can also convince Amanda to vote Parvati out, but otherwise I think this should be an easy decision for Amanda. As much as I love Cirie, Amanda should vote her out. She should beat Parvati easily.
The ladies enter tribal council and the jury comes in. Amanda is already in tears when Probst starts the proceedings. She says winning immunity was both a blessing and a curse. Um, mostly a blessing, though. I mean, come on. The jury seems to agree with me, as they all roll their eyes at Amanda's problems. It's probably not a good idea to talk about what a hard time you're having in making a potentially game-winning decision in front of the people you helped take out of said game, Amanda. Probst asks Cirie if she "buys" that Amanda is having a hard time with this. Cirie says she does, since they all thought it would be the three of them until the end and never planned for this to happen. Parvati says she doesn't envy Amanda's decision right now. She sure doesn't! Parvati said in a post-show interview that she purposely lost the last challenge because she knew no matter who won, they'd take her with them to the jury, and this way she'd probably win a vote from the person the immunity winner voted out. So, if that's true, she's loving every minute of Amanda being the bad guy. Probst asks Amanda what the risks are if she brings Parvati or Cirie to the end. Amanda says that Cirie is a great talker and can convince anyone to do anything. But Parvati has played a social game and has personal relationships with several jury members. Yes ... but most of them are BAD. Like Ozzy and James, who totally hate her now. And Eliza can't be a big fan of her, either. Probst wants blood, so he demands that Amanda tells us how it feels to be so happy to make it to the Final Two, but at the same time there's the incredible pain of having to choose which alliance mate to vote out. Amanda sobs and Parvati and Cirie rush to comfort her while Eliza rolls her eyes a million times. Amanda says this is a lose-lose situation, because no matter who she votes for tonight, she's going to hurt someone's feelings. Meanwhile, the rest of the jury is disgusted with her, because it's not like she cried over hurting any of their feelings. Probst says Amanda is the only person voting tonight, and she'd better choose wisely if she wants to win a million dollars. It'd be kind of awesome if Amanda gave away her immunity necklace right now, but she doesn't.
