Tribal council. Jeff gets the group seated. He starts with the challenge, asking about the eating and the playing, and asking Rafe about Jamie's comment that Judd was protecting the six-person alliance. Rafe says that he didn't enjoy listening to those comments, because he didn't want it to become "us versus them." Of course, he ate, so...you know. He knew it was that a little bit, or he wouldn't have eaten. And couldn't have eaten. Rafe says he thinks that in addition to being a game about numbers, it's "about respecting each other." Thank you, Ad Council.
Asked for his opinion of it all, Bobby Jon declares that Jamie's move had "no class." "I have class," Jamie interjects, "so he can think what he wants to think. I'm going to be the bigger man." Bobby Jon approaches the boiling point again, saying with frustration, "Man, just shut up, dude. God." And then Jamie has some weird-ass argument about how Bobby Jon didn't ask for immunity...I guess the night that Rafe was there? And how this is somehow the same thing? Bobby Jon says that Brian was the one who needed immunity that night, and that he didn't ask for it. I wonder if that was a part of that tribal council we didn't see -- something about a chance to ask Rafe for immunity? Hmm. Rather appallingly, Jamie claims that for Bobby Jon to tell him he has no class is "disrespectful," and that he didn't disrespect Bobby Jon. No? Asking how he was doing just to rub his nose in it? That wasn't disrespectful? Whatever. "I'm sorry I didn't play in that game today, but we'll see who the bigger man is on the field," Jamie mutters. Bobby Jon gives a derisive and richly deserved snort. ["As he should, because...Jamie wasn't on the field. Man, just shut up, dude. God." -- Wing Chun]
Jeff asks Cindy why she played. Cindy says that she can eat at home, but that this is her only chance to play ["well, probably" -- Wing Chun], so she's playing as hard as she can. She also mentions that she didn't love having everyone root for Judd and nobody root for her, and points out that, in the end, she and Judd each spent and hour standing on the blocks. Jeff asks Gary whether the six who played deserve to be here more than the four who ate do. Gary dodges the question rather extravagantly, saying that people should vote with the heart and not the mind, because this deep into the game, your mind plays tricks on you. He speaks directly into Rafe's figurative ear, saying that, at the end of the game, it's going to be your heart that will say what's right and what's wrong. And you know, when it comes to your heart and competition, you should listen to Gary. He's a landscaper.
