And now, the vote: Lindsey votes for Carl. She thinks he's a great guy, but that he doesn't need the money. Frank votes for Lindsey because she doesn't carry her weight. They're using a special African Tribal Council Pen this week, and its lid is camouflaged by its zebra stripes. Linda votes for Lindsey and says, "I like this person. I think this person has a lot of potential. But one must remember that Mother Africa is a very spiritual place. The gods and goddesses are watching and listening." And laughing their asses off.
Peachy tallies the votes, and it's split four and four between Carl ("Dr. B.") and Lindsey. They're each given a chance to "plead [their] case" to the tribe. Carl says that from the first day, he's been like, "This is what you get." I have no idea why that would be incentive for others to want to keep him around, but anyway. He says that he's a "man of honor": he's worked hard, and he's a valuable asset. Lindsey says she's not the "most domestic person around" and she can't "cook mush yet" or even make a fire. She says she's good in the challenges, though, and then turns to Carl and says, "It's a game for money, and you don't need it." He actually looks respectful of this comment. Carl doesn't need the money now most likely because he worked hard when he was Lindsey's age in order to have financial stability later in life. Something about Carl's mannerisms lead me to believe he was not raised in the lap of luxury. More like in the lap of Livia Soprano.
