Tribal council. Jeff brings in the jury. Big Tom is wearing overalls and no shirt. So that's sexy, as you can imagine. Jeff opens by talking about the last tribal council, which seems kind of unfair, as far as I'm concerned, in that it basically reopens the grievances of people who have been voted off. Jeff asks Jenna whether she noticed the strong jury reaction to Big Tom's booting. Jenna says she did, and she says that, of course, that made her think. She points out that these are people who have been voted out, and that "facing them is traumatic." Alicia gives the enormous, disgusted eye-roll. And I'll give her that "traumatic" is a bit of silly hyperbole, but still? Shut up, Alicia's rolling eyes. You've got nothing to be particularly proud of, either. Jeff next attacks Rob for "betraying" Big Tom in the final five, which...again, I kind of wish he hadn't done, because it really does smell like interference. I don't like Jeff making judgments on what people have done, particularly -- like I said -- when it involves bringing up by proxy the beefs of the departed. Rob's response is, "There's two sides to every story, and I say that with one hundred percent conviction." And it's not clear yet what that means either. But it will be later.
Jeff turns to Amber and tells her to "make the argument" that the jury shouldn't be bitter over being voted out, because it's part of the game. Good grief, Jeff, Larry King asks tougher questions than that right before he starts licking some famous person's neck. Amber's response is to recall that she had an alliance in Australia also, and that she was betrayed by it, but that in the end, she voted for the person she thought stabbed her in the back, because she admitted that she was outplayed. I think Amber expects far too much from this jury, because they are certainly not going to be doing that. Jeff says it seems to him that with each tribal council, the "emotional wear and tear" seems to become more pronounced. He asks Rupert about the fact that he and Jenna have been "pretty tight," and that Rob and Amber have been "pretty tight," so now it's down to just the four of them. Rupert says that the day was "very high and very low." Jeff asks Jenna whether this means what it appears to -- that Rupert is on the block unless there's a tie. She confirms it, saying that it's tough, because she genuinely feels that she has "a bond" with Rupert, but that it's also a game in which she wants to get as far as she can. Jeff asks Rupert how he feels about all this -- because he just hasn't had quite enough of an opportunity to talk yet -- and he says that he wants himself and Jenna to "stand strong" and "force the rock issue." Wow, that's really brave of him. It's remarkable how it always just so happens that other people playing the right and honorable way always makes it more likely that Rupert will win. In Rupert's mind, I think honor is actually a little guy in a cape and tights, running around waving a "Go Rupert" sign.
